Finding Something Beautiful To Notice

Lisa Beamer’s comments on Good Morning AmericaBeamer

If you remember, she’s the wife of Todd Beamer who said ‘Let’s Roll!’ and helped take down the plane over Pennsylvania that was heading for Washington, DC back on 9/11.

She said it’s the little things that she misses most about Todd, such as hearing the garage door open as he came home, and her children running to meet him.

Lisa recalled this story: “I had a very special teacher in high school many years ago whose husband died suddenly of a heart attack. About a week after his death, she shared some of her insight with a classroom of students.

As the late afternoon sunlight came streaming in through the classroom windows and the class was nearly over, she moved a few things a side on the edge of her desk and sat down there. With a gentle look of reflection on her face, she paused and said, ‘Class is over. I would like to share with all of you, a thought that is unrelated to class, but which I feel is very important. Each of us is put here on earth to learn, share, love, appreciate and give of ourselves. None of us knows when this fantastic experience will end. It can be taken away at any moment.

Perhaps this is God’s way of telling us that we must make the most out of every single day. Her eyes, beginning to water, she went on, ‘So I would like you all to make me a promise. From now on, on your way to school, or on your way home, find something beautiful to notice.

It doesn’t have to be something you see; it could be a scent, perhaps of freshly baked bread wafting out of someone’s house, or it could be the sound of the breeze slightly rustling the leaves in the trees, or the way the morning light catches one autumn leaf as it falls gently to the ground. Please look for these things, and cherish them. For, although it may sound trite to some, these things are the “stuff” of life. The little things we are put here on earth to enjoy. The things we often take for granted.

The class was completely quiet. We all picked up our books and filed out of the room silently. That afternoon, I noticed more things on my way home from school than I had that whole semester. Every once in a while, I think of that teacher and remember what an impression she made on all of us, and I try to appreciate all of those things that sometimes we all overlook.

Take notice of something special you see on your lunch hour today. Go barefoot. Or walk double dipon the beach at sunset. Stop off on the way home tonight to get a double dip ice cream cone. For as we get older, it is not the things we did that we often regret, but the things we didn’t do.

Uncle Bill, thank you for sharing this posting.

Happy News!

Notice how often the media in concert with Goodfellas manipulate to publish and push out events, accomplishments, announcements, and happy news about the Deep State’s elite.   Simply put, it’s all about self congratulatory politics that encourage and promote a mutual, ritual back scratching and ass kissing.

Almost a kiss and a curtsy.
Bears Ears Goodfellas
Goodfellas drooling over the Bears Ears Happy News!  Notice Zinke’s strategic placement looming and leering at top center?

Every tragicomedy like “Bears Ears” needs a “heavy” … an enforcer … someone to take a “lickin’ stick” to the lowly publicans, sinners and the “groundlings” in the penny seats.  That would be Mr. Navy Seal Secretary Zinke the big, buff, bully, bad ass, Bluto of the Badlands.

bluto
“I’m a SEAL … I’ve Gotta’ keep them’ crazy damn Injuns’ on the reservation … folks!”

“Psychological Operations and Black Arts” tools include artifice, design, and scheme to conceal, defraud, and deflect.  The “Bears Ears” brouhaha, no matter the expressed will of the people, is a prime example.  See the “Westwise” article President Trump opens 2 million acres inside national monuments to mining

In order to stay “tuned up” and raise one’s awareness levels, we suggest a re-visit to the following posting …  As for the Black Arts, “Since when is anything about what it’s about?”

This coming week we’ll begin to unravel a web of intrigue and subterfuge that has ensnared even the President.  It’s all about the “Black Arts and Psychological Operations.”

Finale:

The foregoing focus on the reprehensible Republican Goodfellas deserves more “balance.”   We see in their conduct for profit and plunder, the arrogant hijack of a pristine wilderness.  With glee and gusto they celebrate their booty.   Never-the-less, they are NOT the only Goodfella denizens of the Deep State’s Swamp.  It is, therefore, our obligation to shed more light on the despicable Democrats.

There’s nothing like being “fair and balanced,” so long as we’re talking about kissing … here goes something … it’s weird but accurately reflective of the desperately, despicable “Dems” … truly Goodfellas all.  Maryland State Sen. Richard Madaleno began airing an ad that shows all the ways the Montgomery County Democrat has supported policies that President Trump opposes. He ends the ad by asking: “And what’s the No. 1 way I piss off Donald Trump and the Republicans?” He then kisses his husband.

kissing
YUK!

Not only does Madaleno get the dumb ass award for using gender preference as his main talking point for “standing up” to President Trump, he’s bucking an insurmountable odd.  (Wow what a pundit could do with that last phrase, “… bucking an insurmountable odd.“)  Regarding the “odds,” here’s the skinny from Gallup ….

PRINCETON, N.J. — The American public estimates on average that 23% of Americans are gay or lesbian, little changed from Americans’ 25% estimate in 2011, and only slightly higher than separate 2002 estimates of the gay and lesbian population. These estimates are many times higher than the 3.8% of the adult population who identified themselves as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender in Gallup Daily tracking in the first four months of this year.  (Who is driving the buss here?)

Ok … Despicable Dem, brain child Madaleno … you “empty suit” … you Daffy Duck … you may have at least 3.8% of the vote but count how many pissed off(s) there are among the remaining 96.2%.  Now who’s going to be driving the buss for you?  Daffy Duck … of course!

Duck

So there you have it with HAPPY News” and “GAY Looney Tunes.” 

“Bluto the Bully Zinke” and “Daffy Duck Madaleno are starring.”  

It’s a “HAPPY,” rowdy, rollicking and GAY dust-up.  “Ya hoo” for American politics!!

thats all

For now ….

Senator Orrin Hatch to the Supreme Court? Do ya’ feel the Earth shaking? Well it’s not shaking half as much as I am and this limb I’m crawling out on … just for the hell of it of course! Hatch for SCOTUS? Candidly … most unlikely but we can propose it for the wry tragicomedy of it.

hung the Bears Ears Monument out to dry by rescinding President Obama’s expansion of its protections and geography.  What a lovely love fest it created in Utah with all the Goodfellas bowing, scraping, genuflecting, and sniffing one another.  Utah’s reprehensible Republican “Goodfellas” haven’t had such an euphoric, orgasmic political event since the driving of the Golden Spike.  Now the Goodfellas can, with impunity, despoil a pristine wilderness and advantage themselves and their ilk of a cornucopia of the strategic resources that abound there.    Shake, wobble and bend this branch I’m on!

Utah Goodfellas and Bears Ears
Gaggle of Goodfellas in full revel.

Oh but by-the-way … a murky backstory parallel to all of this churlish “tee-heeing” is unraveling as shady deals with Kazakhstan and a certain scary Skunk Works and, and, and ….  come slowly to light.  However, that’s to report later after we’ve finished slithering out on this limb for some fruit that we believe is there.  We smell it.  We sense it. But … we’ve yet to see it. It needs to ripen a bit more.  We’ll be brave and keep crawling.  Shake, wobble and Bend!

So … here we have the President, reprehensible Republicans, Rinos and fellow travelers all  giddy about Supreme Court Justice Anthony M. Kennedy’s retirement.  The despicable Dems are baring their fangs.  Almost before the dust had settled on the retirement airing, Utah Senator Mike Lee emerged as one of President Trump’s “chosen.”  Shake, wobble and Bend!

“He’s an outstanding talent,” the president told reporters. “I actually saw him on television last night, where he said he would love the job. You know, usually, they don’t say that.” “We’ve become good friends … very good guy, very talented, very smart,” Trump said of Lee, who once was a #NeverTrump Republican and voted for third-party candidate Evan McMullin in the 2016 election. Salt Lake Tribune

 Now … Senator Mike Lee may be a Utah Goodfellas’ darling, but he’s hardly likely to survive after the despicably desperate, liberal, democrat,  Goodfella, denizens of the Deep State and the Swamp get through with him.  I believe that is so.  I believe that President Trump knows that is so.  And … inching farther out on this limb … I believe that Lee knows it’s so … yet he is ready, willing and able to be sacrificed at the pleasure of the “Grifters” that grip partisan politics in Washington and Utah.  Shake, wobble and Bend!

Here now … we refer back to our discussion of the “Black Arts”  found at  https://goo.gl/EnnX5L  It’s all about propaganda, deflection, and most likely in this case a False Flag operation in embryo.  I can smell the fruit.  Will this dang branch hold up much longer?  Shake, wobble and Bend!

Exit … Senator Mike Lee … eventually rejected for being too Mormon and too conservative. Or … in the alternative … there are a few other candidates who could step up to be sacrificed and rejected.  It’s great personal PROPAGANDA to have even been considered. The liberal Goodfellas are handed a hollow victory by their conservative counterparts.  “It is what it is” in Washington and the Swamp.  Shake, wobble and Bend!

Enter … Now here’s where we venture farther out onto this bending, creaking, skinny ole’ branch … but we smell the fruit … enter Orrin Hatch … mostly Mormon … professed conservative but best buds’ with anyone or anything with or for a dollar or two.  Potentate and Patriarch Hatch knows more about the Goodfellas than their wives and girlfriends and mothers do.  Shake, wobble and Bend!

What if? … just “what if” Hatch were really the nominee to the SCOTUS?  Candidly … most unlikely but we can propose it for the wry tragicomedy in it.  He would be a shoo in.   He’s got “juice” and he could “twist” the liberal Goodfellas into screaming for mercy til’ their tongues turned Screaming.gifblue.  Hatch’s got 40+ years worth of dirt on “them’ despicable Dem’ Goodfellas.”  No one … I mean no one … would dare seriously contest his appointment.  Hatch could serve until a safe political majority swung sufficiently to the reprehensible  Republicans.  He could retire from the SCOTUS and his replacement would be uncontested.  It’s a win win for all and Hatch could post another line to his seamy resume.  Shake, wobble and Bend!

Stop … That’s enough said!  If wrong about Hatch for SCOTUS, we’ve already spent too many words to eat them all back before the fat lady finally sings … sings over the surviving nominee … whoever?  Shake, wobble, bend and break … what?

All-the-while they’ve left ample evidence of their conduct in a wake of  political effluent and ethical carnage strewn across the Nation and around the Globe.  Unfortunately with their “Black Arts” in play along the way … truth flees and flits like fickle illusions through dark clouds of Cognitive Dissonance, Distortion, Psychological Warfare, Propaganda, Perception Management, Mind Manipulation, and Destabilization.  They, the masters of these “Black Arts,” with “malice afore thought” and intent have subverted the rule of law and good governance. 

The following is a fulsome rogues gallery … Master’s of the black arts all … they have engage their tools of “trade” … Cognitive Dissonance, Distortion, Psychological Warfare, Propaganda, Perception Management, Mind Manipulation, and Destabilization.  Regardless of having escaped the consequences of their conduct, we believe and pray that their time is coming and the emboldened hand they have been playing will be Trumped!

Comparing presidential administrations by arrests and convictions.

Keep in mind that, “Liars figure and figures lie.” No one is going to like the statistics that are compiled hereafter. I don’t trust them entirely for obvious reasons. However, they are a look at what is out there.

As for “Comparing presidential administrations by arrests and convictions,” the reader will notice the obvious fawning and genuflecting approach over the Obama administration’s reported lack of scandal.   Of course the truth is coming out now.  We do, however, believe that the scandals that are reported in this article serve to afford important perspective.  See …  Comparing presidential administrations by arrests and convictions: A warning for Trump appointees …

“In May 2015, conservative New York Times columnist David Brooks mentioned on PBS’s Newshour that the Obama administration has been remarkably scandal-free:

“President Obama has run an amazingly scandal-free administration, not only he himself, but the people around him. He’s chosen people who have been pretty scandal-free.”

As Obama’s administration winds to a close, that remains true. Not one criminal indictment for anyone in the Obama administration over the entire eight years of his tenure. In fact, it is the only Presidential administration since Watergate to end with zero criminal indictments.”

Little did columnist Brooks know of the events most recent that let the hot air out of his premature comments.

He’s a Claim Jumper because He jumps at the chance to lay claim for profit and plunder to the West’s cherished lands.  JumperHe’s a claim dumper because He’s dumped those lands into a political grist mill flooded with Goodfellas ready to advantage themselves of the plunder.  He’s a pumper in the sense that He’s “pumping up” a reprehensible environmental rhetoric that is incredibly false and misleading.

Take particular note of, “Today, Energy Fuels Resources owns and operates a uranium mine and mill just outside the boundaries of the monument, and is connected to dozens of claims in the area. When Secretary Zinke visited the region, representatives for the company shadowed him, passing out maps of proposed cuts to the monument. Phil Lyman, a local county commissioner pushing for the monument’s elimination, noted “They wanted to talk to anyone who’d listen.” The full extent of the company’s demands is evident in their May 25 letter to Secretary Zinke, in which they asked for dramatic reductions to the monument, arguing “there are also many other known uranium and vanadium deposits located within the newly created BENM.”

We’ll have much more to say about Energy Fuels Resources and their connections to the Goodfellas  Stay tuned!

Bears Ears … The monument’s original size was 1,351,849 acres (547,074 ha), which was controversially reduced 85% by President Donald Trump on December 4, 2017.  Mr. Navy SEAL, Secretary Zinke’s the hatchet man making it happen.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bears_Ears_National_Monument

Bears Ears National Monument is a United States national monument located in San Juan County in southeastern Utah, established by President Barack Obama by presidential proclamation on December 28, 2016. The monument’s original size was 1,351,849 acres (547,074 ha), which was controversially reduced 85% by President Donald Trump on December 4, 2017. The monument protects the public land surrounding the Bears Ears—a pair of buttes—and the Indian Creek corridor rock climbing area.  The area within the monument is largely undeveloped and contains a wide array of historic, cultural and natural resources. The monument is co-managed by the Bureau of Land Management and United States Forest Service (through the Manti-La Sal National Forest), along with a coalition of five local Native American tribes; the Navajo Nation, Hopi, Ute Mountain Ute, Ute Indian Tribe of the Uintah and Ouray Reservation, and the Pueblo of Zuni, all of which have ancestral ties to the region. A proclamation issued by President Trump on December 4, 2017 reduced the monument to 201,876 acres (81,696 ha)—an exceptionally large reduction that is unprecedented in the history of U.S. national monuments.[6] National monuments have been reduced by previous presidents, but not since 1963 and never to such a large degree.[7] Legal scholars have argued that the reduction is not authorized by law, and several federal lawsuits have been filed challenging Trump’s action.

With “All hands on the Bears Ears,” we are distressed about what mischief or tragedy or comedy has been or is now afoot next at the Department of the Interior and Bears Ears!

So what is next … and … when … Mr. Navy SEAL Secretary Zinke?

First we report

… His petulant finger pointing during a visit to Bears Ears and His loss of composure and His impatience with Cassandra Begay who asked but a couple of simple questions.   Yes … we are talking about His Eminence Mr. Navy SEAL Secretary Zinke.  Watch this.

Just answer Cassandra Begay’s question Mr. Navy SEAL Secretary Zinke, or don’t YOU know how to be nice?   Did You, a towering giant of a SEAL, suddenly feel a primitive urge to fire off a retort with your finger, intimidate, and take no prisoners?  Or were you firing for effect?  Were you firing your finger randomly at the crowd or anyone else who might be intimidated?  Were you firing it to impress and pander to your handlers Senator Hatch and Governor Herbert and the Goodfellas?  Why at this patch of great good Western Earth would you pick Gaea’s young maiden Begay to intimidate?

“I was scared, and my heart was racing,” Begay said in a press statement following the encounter. “It felt condescending and unnecessarily aggressive. I have no idea why asking a simple question to somebody who is on a “listening tour” would react so aggressively.”

Mr. “BOOM, BOOM” Navy SEAL Secretary Zinke!

Every tragicomedy like “Bears Ears” needs a “heavy” … an enforcer … someone to take a “lickin’ stick” to the lowly publicans and sinners in the penny seats.  That would be Mr. Secretary, Navy Seal Zinke the big, buff, bully, Bluto of the Badlands.

“Gotta’ keep them’ damn Injuns’ on the reservation folks.”

Mr. Navy SEAL Secretary Zinke, you may be sitting tall in the saddle and riding rough shod on your high horse over the likes of the Begays of the West.  But, stand down for a minute and listen to what a real Montana cowboy author, philosopher, and artist Will James had to say about such riding …

“There was never a hoss’ what’ couldn’t be rode and william-r.-(will)-james-bucking-horsethere was never a cowboy what’ couldn’t be throwed.”

From “Smoky the Cow Horse”

Get ready Mr. Navy SEAL Secretary Zinke, “the hoss’ You rode in on” at The Interior may throw You sooner rather than later!

A quick aside here

Now before ya’ll readers get too highfalutin about “Smoky the Cow Horse” used as a citation and metaphor chasing His Eminence around herein, Thomas Crombie Schelling (April 14, 1921 – December 13, 2016) said that Smoky the Cowhorse was the  most influential book he ever read. “He’d say it was the first time he understood empathy for other human beings”  Schelling was an American economist and professor of foreign policy, national security, nuclear strategy, and arms control at the School of Public Policy at University of Maryland, College Park. He was also co-faculty at the New England Complex Systems Institute. He  (Schelling) was awarded the 2005 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences (shared with Robert Aumann) for “having enhanced our understanding of conflict and cooperation through game-theory analysis.”

Moving on

From EcoWatch by   During a tour of the heavily contested Bears Ears National Monument in Utah on Monday, U.S. Interior Sec. Ryan Zinke pointed a finger at monument supporter Cassandra Begay and told her to “be nice” after she repeatedly questioned the secretary about not spending more time talking with tribal leaders as part of his monuments review.  Begay, a tribal liaison with the group Peaceful Advocates for Native Dialogue & Organizing Support, described the encounter as “condescending and unnecessarily aggressive.”  Read more of this excellent article here.

Here we go again

What’s more stupid than stupid?  Is it Stupider, or Stupidest?  Sure … Mr. Navy SEAL Secretary Zinke You may have thought Rep. Hanabusa was fair and easy game because she is “just” a diminutive female Japanese American Congresswoman from Hawaii.  Unless … unless in fact You were to have commissioned an assessment before leaping off the roof head first onto her turf.  Rep. & ZinkeYou would have learned from your assessment and her personality profile that she has inherited the grit and guts and intellect of her ancestors … in sum … she’s a bright, stand up, two fisted representative related by blood to the most loyal and the “best of the best” American citizens ever.  Ever hear of the Greatest Generation’s much decorated 442nd Regimental Combat Team composed almost entirely of American soldiers of Japanese/American descent?  The opposite of stupid, let’s be smart enough to NOT tangle with or antagonize a little lady who has that same culture in her heritage and who has a grip on Your budget! 

After Hawaii’s Rep. Colleen Hanabusa recounted the experiences of her grandfather at a U.S. internment camp during WWII , Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke carelessly responded by happily saying ‘konnichiwa’ as ‘Hanabusa’ was questioning Zinke on the elimination of the Japanese American confinement sites program proposed in Trump’s 2019 budget.  At least one “capture” shows an onlooker who was visibly shocked by his remark.  Konnichiwa is a Japanese greeting, typically meaning ‘good afternoon’.   Note the incredulity and immediate shock …

Zinke shock

Rep. Hanabusa quietly but directly set Him straight with, “I think it’s still ‘Ohayo Gozaimasu’ (good morning) but that’s O.K.” 

We suggest that Rep. Hanabusa’s “… that’s O.K.” means it’s O.K. that You’ve just made a patronizing, careless, “dumb ass” of  Yourself Mr. Navy SEAL Secretary Zinke.

He works for us???  Really poor timing we’d say.   See it here … listen for yourself.

You might be tempted to conclude that this is, “Much Ado About Nothing.”  Not so!  Most basic pay grade U.S. Army Special Forces “Green Beret” troopers would be dismayed and disciplined for having made such a stupid mistake and for not having done his homework … an assessment.  However, from Mr. Navy SEAL Secretary Zinke’s cavalier and light minded approach, it is obvious that Democrat Colleen Hanabusa is the enemy and Mr. Navy SEAL Secretary Zinke is either purposefully, arrogantly sloppy with or completely oblivious to His own ridiculous gaffe.  His smirks for effect throughout His budget testimony are noted.  His failed, sophomoric and childish attempt at humor and ingratiation with Rep. Hanabusa have validated His careless and arrogant mannerisms.

“Petulant, pompous, patronizing, Imperial, bombastic, affectatious, arrogant, hubristic, peevish, bad-tempered, querulous, pettish, fretful, cross, irritable, sulky, snappish, crotchety, cavalier, touchy, tetchy, testy, fractious, grumpy, disgruntled, crabby, grouchy, cranky,” are all words coming to mind at the moment. 

Or is it that the foregoing characterizations of conduct are but a mask for insecurity?

Moving on agin …

Did You really say the following?  “I’m a geologist,” He said. “I can assure you that oil and gas in Bears Ears was not part of My decision matrix. A geologist will tell you there is little, if any, oil and gas.”

According to Wikipedia, “Zinke earned a B.S. in geology in 1984 and graduated with honors.  In American Commander, he wrote that he decided on his major by ‘randomly pointing to a major from the academic catalog.’  Zinke’s intended career path was underwater geology.  Despite never working as a geologist,  Zinke publicly refers to himself as a geologist. ”

At a hearing …

The video, “YOU ARE ONE OF MY BIGGEST REGRETS!!!” Senator Ron Wyden GETS PISSED OFF & DESTROYS Ryan Zinke, is too long for this posting but is reflective of more of Mr. Secretary Zinke’s persona replete with multitudinous attitudes and irresponsible behaviors.

Why are you squeezing the Bears’ Ears and other monuments so?  Indeed … deplorable timing on your part Mr. Secretary Zinke.

Issues? … Many!  

Zinke is in trouble … for our readers we suggest visiting:   “Secretary Zinke … “There’s No Smoke without Fire.” You will find a summary of Inspector General complaints and investigations regarding His Eminence.

Phil Lyman, a local county commissioner pushing for the monument’s elimination, noted “They wanted to talk to anyone who’d listen.” The full extent of the company’s demands is evident in their May 25 letter to Secretary Zinke, in which they asked for dramatic reductions to the monument, arguing “there are also many other known uranium and vanadium deposits located within the newly created BENM.”  We’ll have much more to say about Energy Fuels Resources and their connections to the Goodfellas  Stay tuned!

Zinke’s war on science…  Federal Watchdog: Interior Department Scrapped Coal Health Study Without Good Reason By NATE HEGYI • JUN 14, 2018

Zinke Pass … Ryan Zinke’s Interior Department Gives Law-Breaking Coal Company a Pass

 

What on God’s good Western Earth is going on?  Why was He a “no show” at all of those monuments? Is He hiding from something?  A real SEAL in hiding?  We know that His galloping all over the Nation hasn’t been well received … but in hiding … a real SEAL?

What to do … ignore … laugh him off … salute… flip Him off?

We honor Mr. Navy SEAL Secretary Zinke’s military service.  We also honor His compatriots, the Navy SEALs who are superbly trained, superbly qualified, and often very quickly tasked to perform flawlessly and professionally under the most trying and dangerous of circumstances … but tasked to perform mostly in one dimension  Damn the torpedoesfull speed ahead … “Kill em’ all and let God sort em’ out!”   

The foregoing “Damn” and “Kill” sounds a lot like the one dimensional approach to our beloved Western lands that His Eminence has taken while at the helm of the Department of the Interior.

SEAL out of water

We propose a solution.  Whereas … the U.S. Army Special Forces Green Berets are multi-dimensional professionals trained and ordered to be super sensitive to timing, language, culture, and collateral matters.  Therefore, regardless of His SEAL zeal and affiliations, we recommend that Mr. Navy SEAL Secretary Zinke assign a Green Beret,  Operations Sergeant to His Eminence.  This assignment would be for the purpose of producing the profiles and assessments necessary to enlighten and prevent Himself from regularly repeating His heretofore embarrassing, asinine behaviors.   After all, He works for us.  We emphasize that political representatives on both sides of the aisle deserve flawless professionalism, mature deference, dignified respect, and impeccable timing from the people who work for them.

Any wise old Special Forces Operations Sergeant could be most helpful to His Eminence in that regard.   In mind, for example, is a former Marine and decorated Vietnam Veteran who transferred to the Army’s Green Berets.  He also served in Afghanistan.  Oh … and by-the-way … he’s a citizen with a Masters Degree in Statistics who soldiers on weekends and deploys abroad from time to time returning home to duty as a Husband, Father, Grandfather, businessman, religious leader, beloved friend and neighbor.  He’s quiet, unassuming and You couldn’t find him in a crowd unless You knew him.  He wouldn’t be a threat to Your Presence … Your Eminence.

Sitting tall in the saddle with lots of empty space under Your hat Mr. Navy SEAL Secretary Zinke

We know it might be difficult for His Eminence to take counsel and advice from a quasi soldier/civilian, but Mr. Navy SEAL Secretary Zinke You could surely spare Yourself the indignity of continuing to make an ass of Yourself if You would but just listen and learn.  Trotting  back to Your first day on the job, to Your grand entrance, and to your flying the flag in honor of Yourself.  Do You, Your Eminence, have any idea how many people find it ludicrous, hilarious and are guffawing their guts out about your imperial arrival?  Ah but there may be hope.  Sergeant Major will help You understand the timing, deference, dignity, and decorum required of Your job and service to the citizens who pay you.

See the following video of the imperious Mr. Navy SEAL Secretary Zinke as He entered center stage. This was His first and best moment of power, prestige, and posterity.   Twitterpated, slapping backs, shaking hands and revelling, His Eminence ascended to the throne at the Department of the Interior.  As one might imagine, the event was peopled by Federal employees … most likely distracted, disgusted and directed (forced) to be present.  Federal employees only have to look on all sides and in house to watch the likes of Mr. Navy SEAL Secretary Zinkes come and go.

Former Interior Secretary Sally Jewell in a recent interview ribbed her successor for choosing to fly his own personal flag over the agency’s headquarters in downtown Washington, D.C., when He is in the building.

After taking over the Interior Department last year, Secretary Ryan Zinke decided to revive an arcane, military flag-flying ritual at the department, The Washington Post reported in October.

Zinke FlagThe process involves a security staffer going up to the roof and hoisting a special “secretarial flag,” which is emblazoned with the agency’s bison seal and flanked by seven white stars, whenever Zinke enters the building. The flag then comes down whenever Zinke leaves.

“I had no idea there was a secretarial flag,” Jewell told HuffPost. “And if I had known there was a flag the last thing I would have done was to ever fly it.”

Zinke, a former Montana congressman and Navy SEAL, took some criticism for restoring the ritual, a part of which — flying the deputy secretary’s flag — violates agency rules for displaying and flying flags, according to HuffPost.

“Tick Tock … Tick Tock” what time is it Mr. Navy SEAL Secretary Zenki? You say, “All hands are on the Bears Ears!”  You still can’t tell time Mr. Navy SEAL Secretary Zinke.  But we can.  You are definitely a SEAL out of water in the West and it’s time to dismount.

There is no “finale” or “One over the World” solution for the Bears Ears brouhaha … just yet.

But … there is a “finale” for this posting.

The reader is likely laboring under the misconception that this writer is something of a flaming liberal, frog, tree, and chub hugger.  Nothing could be farther from the truth.  There is, however, an imbalance in the alignment and status of forces that demands our attention and demands to be resolved.  The Western playing field is tipped too far in favor of the Goodfellas.  It’s a David/Goliath matter.  We love Davids. We are Davids.

Another wonderful Bagley Cartoon

 

It isn’t the extreme polarizations that we strive to report, address or help to resolve.  That’s way too far over our  horizons … way too far above and beyond our pay grade.  Our one primary delight, passion and preoccupation is to shed a hot white light on those Goodfellas who have positioned themselves to  personally profit from the conflict and chaos that you and they have so craftily created.  Stay tuned!

 

“More to follow” … Next will see puppeteer Orrin Hatch, center stage with Zinke on his lap

As for Senator Orrin Hatch, we’ve never heard of a BRIBE he didn’t want to … or wouldn’t … TAKE. Undoubtedly, he is a beloved husband, father, grandfather, and friend to many.  He is also supremely, politically savvy and sly and has been re-elected for 40 years by a susceptible gaggle of blinded followers.

We claim the right to challenge Hatch and we allege that he is a pox on the body politic.  He is, beyond the shadow of our doubt, one of the most corruptly powerful legislators this Grand Land has ever suffered.  Our readers will soon be privy to the Institutional Memories of Hatch’s conduct that has served for years to deceitfully  subvert and undermine the Rule of Law and good governance.

Thanks to the “Goodfellas ….

…. the current Utah “experience” is the most corrupt in the history of the State of Utah.

Utah is the poster child for “broad spectrum corruption” and “complicity” in action all-the-while operating in concert with the structures that influence important social systems … economic systems, legal systems, political systems, cultural systems to include family, religion, law, economy, and class.

FBI Very Interested in Utah Judicial Corruption
BY ADMIN ON DECEMBER 8, 2016 IN US COURTS, US NEWS
According to a source that will go unnamed, the FBI doesn’t think too highly of Utah. He referred to the state as the “Wild West” for corruption. Many individuals, he claims, have been duped into not ratting out their brethren who are members of the Mormon Church. Apparently, some within the agency still resent the hatchet job the Deseret News and KSL.com (Both owned by the Mormon Church) laid on their good name back in 2011: According to a source that will go unnamed, the FBI doesn’t think too highly of Utah. He referred to the state as the “Wild West” for corruption. Many individuals, he claims, have been duped into not ratting out their brethren who are members of the Mormon Church.

“Rub a dub dub ….

… three men in a tub and who do you think they be? The Good, the Bad, and the really Ugly!” … and … “Mr. President … you’ve been Hatched!”

Hatch

 

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly – The Danish National Symphony Orchestra

The music sets the tone!

Click the photo to activate.  It’s fun to bring back fond memories of a classic movie.  Let the theme song play in the background as you read the following.

 The Good, the Bad, and the really Ugly!”

 

We’ll name them right now.  In the tub we find, Secretary Ryan Zinke the Ugly, Senator Orrin Hatch the Bad, and President Donald Trump the Good.  rub-a-dub-dub-three-rats-in-a-tubNow that isn’t to say they are personally/individually only one dimensionally  all Good, all Bad, or all Ugly.   They are characters fully rounded out as individual human beings possessing all of the characteristics of humanness (good, bad, ugly) in one degree or another at one time or another in their lives.  However, we’ve selected and assigned the preponderance of certain characteristics accordingly.

We are talking about sacred space and Bears Ears here.

Ugly:  For example, we will continue on with Zinke who is a man of courage, strength, and determination.  What more “good” could one report of a Navy SEAL?   However, what he has gained in the foregoing he’s lost in the other areas that we’ve reported and will be examining more completely in the next posting about him.

Bad:  As for Hatch, undoubtedly he is a beloved husband, father, grandfather, and friend to legions.  He has been re-elected for 40 years by a clueless gaggle of blind followers  and is supremely, politically savvy.  However, we allege that he is a pox on the body politic and one of the most corruptly powerful legislators this country has ever seen.  More … much more will be said of Hatch in the posting following the Zinke finale.

Good:  Now to President Trump.  We are relieved that he is our President. We are absolutely delighted with his constant references to and demonstration of love of Country and the American people.    We enjoy watching him connect positively with the military, our veterans, children, police, and many others.   And he donated his salary to military cemeteries?  Absolutely unheard of and beyond wonderful.  We admire his willingness to engage the enemy both foreign and domestic (Our comments about “domestic” enemies would be mind boggling.) … engage them with directness and no nonsense.

Is the foregoing real?  Only time will tell but we pray for it and for him.

Yet the President, vis-a-vis the connivance of Hatch, Zinke, and the “Goodfellas,” has sacrificed some of our Nation’s most sacred space far too naively, quickly, and blindly.    More simply expressed, we believe the President has been conned, deceived, duped, scammed, hoodwinked, hornswoggled and hung out to dry by Hatch and his sleazy tribe of “Goodfellas.”

Zinke is just a clueless factotum carrying water for the “Bears Ears” scam … carrying water for the slimy, unruly scrum of “Goodfellas” from the “Deep State Swamp.”

“Mr. President  … you’ve been Hatched!”

“Done” is for turkeys on Thanksgiving Day!

At the end of a posting on this blog when I’m asked, “Are you done?”  My answer is always, “I may be finished but never done.  Done is for turkeys on Thanksgiving Day.”  Well … there are no turkeys.  It’s not Thanksgiving.  I’m not finished … a long way fTurkeyrom being finished.  This blog is a work in progress and there will be postings on it that progress slowly to be navigated carefully or postings that suddenly leave the imagination spinning at warp speed.  It’s OK!  Please just remember that the site title is Justice 4 All.  And … “Justice is Mercy.” “Justice is Equity.”  “Justice is what the judge says it is.”  Achieving any one or more of that threesome in the Criminal Justice System is always a crap shoot.  Re-exposing and re-shaming the Goodfellas for their conduct which is most likely already information from open sources can be a bit less iffy and arduous.   In a word and in this blog, institutional memories of the past are brought to bear on current individuals and events that serve to further enlighten, enlarge and expose.
Road Kill RoundupThe Blog title is “The Buzzards Roost.”  The process is to create and preside over a “Road Kill Roundup.”  Road kill is messy until the bones have been picked clean.   Road kill are the stinking, scrambled heaps of moral, ethical, political, and cultural carnage that the Goodfellas from the Deep State’s Swamp leave in their inappropriate, scandalous, shameful, and corrupt wake.

The process for getting to the bottom of these “heaps” is highly imaginative.  The investigator hears of inference and innuendo first and than must project his or her imagination into a variety of what if’s.  Gaming and surmising along the way, the investigator doggedly pursues the matter until threads of “reasonableness” begin to emerge.

These threads are from a tapestry loosely woven initially into a rough cloth yet eventually emerging from the loom yielding tightly woven “bolts” of fine linens … the fine linens of Probable Cause and Proof beyond a Reasonable Doubt.   It’s the unending up and down and in and out of the weaving and the many broken threads that vex.  It’s the warp and woof of discovery in the process of weaving that enlivens.  Doggedly persisting, it’s the many threads woven tightly and logically together that will serve in the end to tie the “Goodfellas” to what they’ve done to subvert the “Rule of Law.”

Please stay tuned. We’ll soon return to “Zinke, hinky, dinky, stinky Parlez Vous” … “Rub a dub dub three Goodfellas in a tub” … “Bears Ears and Uranium One” … and other musings.rub-a-dub-dub-three-rats-in-a-tub
