Trump That Bitch!

As long the cheap plaster statue is his property, who gives a flying fuck at a rolling dough-nut? Thought the Xians weren't supposed to practice idolatry anyway.

Thor (Not Ragnarok) Sinks!

MON 30 NOV 1942
Battle of Tassafaronga: TF 67, comprising four heavy cruisers, one light cruiser, and six destroyers (Rear Admiral Carlton H. Wright) surprises Japanese destroyers (Captain Sato Torajiro) off Tassafaronga Point, Guadalcanal. The enemy presses on to jettison supply containers to sustain Japanese troops on Guadalcanal, while torpedoes launched from destroyers Kagero, Makinami, Kuroshio, Oyashio, Kawakaze and Naganami wreak havoc on Wright's ships, damaging heavy cruisers Pensacola (CA-24), Northampton (CA-26), New Orleans (CA-32), and Minneapolis (CA-36). Japanese destroyer Takanami is damaged by cruiser and destroyer gunfire off Tassafaronga (see 1 December).

USAAF B-24s (India Air Task Force) bomb Japanese torpedo boat Kari off Port Blair, Andaman Island, in a strike that inaugurates attacks on the sea approaches to Burma.

German auxiliary cruiser Thor (Schiffe 10) is sunk by explosion of supply ship Uckermark, moored alongside, Yokohama, Japan. The blast also sinks German prize ship Leuthen and Japanese harbor craft in the vicinity.

Indian Ocean
German auxiliary cruiser Michel (Schiffe 28) rescues four additional Armed Guard sailors who have survived the sinking of U.S. freighter Sawokla the previous day (see 18 February 1943).

A Word From The Mists Of History

When we all die in the impending atomic conflagration, it won't be a "Second" Korean War. The Korean War isn't over, idiots, it's just been on hold since 1953.

Navy Involved In Beantown Fire

SAT 28 NOV 1942
United States
"Cocoanut Grove" nightclub in Boston, Massachusetts, catches fire; Ensigns George W. Carlson and Mac A. Cason, SC-V(P), USNR, driving through the city at that hour, respond immediately when they see flames issuing from the burning building. Exhibiting courage, leadership and resourcefulness, these two Supply Corps officers, who organize rescue parties from enlisted men they see in the gathering crowd, are later deemed "the cause of saving more lives than any other single agency." Despite rescuers' efforts, however, 492 people perish in the tragedy.

Cargo ship Alchiba (AK-23) is damaged by Japanese midget submarine Ha.10 (from submarine I-16) 3,000 yards northeast of Lunga Point, Guadalcanal (see 7 December).

USAAF B-17s attack Japanese convoy en route from Munda, New Georgia, to Guadalcanal, and damage cargo vessel Chihaya Maru.

Gunboat Erie (PG-50), torpedoed by German submarine U-163 on 12 November, is moved into the inner harbor at Willemstad, Curacao, N.W.I., to prevent her from sinking and to facilitate salvage (see 12 November and 5 December).

Aircraft escort vessel Chenango (ACV-28) is damaged by heavy seas, North Atlantic.

U.S. freighter Alaskan is torpedoed, shelled and sunk by German submarine U-172 about 400 miles north of St. Paul's Rocks, 03°58'N, 26°19'W; six merchant seamen and one Armed Guard sailor are killed in the attack (see 13 and 15 December 1942, and 5 January 1943).

Comment Of The Day

Made at Wonkette, where there's yet another "Gimme Money" post:

I live on less than US$17,000.00/yr. (in Los Angeles) & I am sick to my fucking stomach of you gawd-damned parasites, here & at every other fucking piece of shit web-log across the iNternet, begging for money. I never pan-handled even when I was homeless. Have you neither pride nor shame?

P.S.: I'm "indebted" too. Big deal!!

For what it's worth (not that much really) one cannot go anywhere on the real news iNternet w/o encountering mockery of the Chump-in-Chief's chumpery.On the telly, unintentional (perhaps) mockery. Is it "Trumpy" Bear because they think they might be sued if they called it Trump Bear?

From one of those useless tumblr acc'ts., via yet another.

Traitor General Flynn To Squeal On Traitor Douchebag Trump?

Fingers crossed while knocking on wood, he will. But let's hope the only thing Flynn gets for telling the truth is a reduced sentence, not a complete skate on his whoring treason on behalf of Russia & Turkey. Treason's punishable by death, innit? Yes:
Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death ...

Froggie Fleet Scuttled

FRI 27 NOV 1942
USAAF B-26s sink Japanese army cargo ship Kachosan Maru off Attu.

French Fleet at Toulon is scuttled to prevent it from falling into German hands. French naval vessels immobilized in this manner include 3 battleships, 4 heavy cruisers, 3 light cruisers, an aircraft depot ship, 30 destroyers, 3 torpedo boats, 16 submarines and 11 gunboats and auxiliaries.

U.S. freighter Jeremiah Wadsworth is torpedoed and sunk by German submarine U-178 approximately 270 miles south of Cape Agulhas, South Africa, 39°25'S, 22°23'E; there are no casualties among the 43-man merchant crew and the 14-man Armed Guard (see 5 and 6 December).
Added poop:
On this day in 1942, French Admiral Jean de Laborde sinks the French fleet anchored in Toulon harbor, off the southern coast of France, in order to keep it out of German hands.

In June 1940, after the German invasion of France and the establishment of an unoccupied zone in the southeast, led by Gen. Philippe Petain, Adm. Jean Darlan was committed to keeping the French fleet out of German control. At the same time, as a minister in the government that had signed an armistice with the Germans, one that promised a relative “autonomy” to Vichy France, Darlan was prohibited from sailing that fleet to British or neutral waters. But a German-commandeered fleet in southern France, so close to British-controlled regions in North Africa, could prove disastrous to the Brits, who decided to take matters into their own hands by launching Operation Catapult: the attempt by a British naval force to persuade the French naval commander at Oran to either break the armistice and sail the French fleet out of the Germans’ grasp—or to scuttle it. And if the French wouldn’t, the Brits would.

And the British tried. In a five-minute missile bombardment, they managed to sink one French cruiser and two old battleships. They also killed 1,250 French sailors. This would be the genesis of much bad blood between France and England throughout the war. General Petain broke off diplomatic relations with Great Britain.

But two years later, with the Germans now in Vichy and the armistice already violated, Admiral Laborde finished the job the British had started. As the Germans launched Operation Lila, the attempt to commandeer the French fleet, Laborde ordered the sinking of 2 battle cruisers, 4 heavy cruisers, 2 light cruisers, 1 aircraft transport, 30 destroyers, and 16 submarines. Three French subs managed to escape the Germans and make it to Algiers, Allied territory. Only one sub fell into German hands. The marine equivalent of a scorched-earth policy had succeeded.

Today In Moore Sex Perversion
Totally unfair & mean images from The Moderate Voice. (Moderation is for sissies & losers, by the way.)

Oh No, Not Going Anywhere.
"Here To Stay" & "Charging Forward".

Blindly into the fucking abyss, chump.
“We’re here to stay,” Kushner told The Washington Post. “At the current moment, we’re charging forward.”
At a future moment, when he & Ivanka "Piece of Ass" Trumpette-Kushner are convicted (like Jared's creepy father) they'll be in prison "to stay" too.

Filthy degenerate scum is too kind a description for these truly horrid (Trumps & Kushners alike) humanoids.

Today's Big Attempted Lie

Trump changes tune again:
New York Times:
Why Trump Stands by Roy Moore, Even as It Fractures His Party  —  By the time Senator Mitch McConnell, the majority leader, made the last of his repeated pleas to President Trump to keep his distance from the Senate candidacy of Roy S. Moore, it was too late.
Suddenly it's "fake news"? After he admitted it? Trump's testimony at his various trials should be highly amusing.

They Hunted The Mammoth

Here's a musical number that whines right along w/ today's evangelical Republican male/potential dater of 14-yr. olds. America really used to be great until the bitches got ideas, didn't it?
Nice Hollywood Sign typeface, too.

Heard earlier today on Bill Gardner's "Rhapsody in Black".

The Man Who Mistook His Neighbor For A Deer: And Other American "Hunting" Tales

Marwa Eltagouri / Washington Post:
He thought he saw a deer and fired his pistol. Now his neighbor is dead.
Not to be cynical or anything, but here's another one, from a couple of wks. ago.
The 34-year-old victim was hunting for gemstones on her property when she was shot. In an affidavit, Trundy said he thought he was firing at a deer but he acknowledged he never saw the deer's outline. Wardens say he fired from 200 feet away.
Why are these pin-dicked murderers "mistaking" women for deer?

Youth pastor arrested for allegedly murdering family on Thanksgiving … CHESTER, Va. - Police have arrested a youth pastor for allegedly murdering his family at a home in Chester on Thanksgiving night.  —  Officers discovered two women and a man shot to death at a home on Dogwood Ridge Court …
"Youth Pastor", of course, is Jesus talk for "church-approved child molesting sicko". Maybe his family wised up to him.

One Meal of 1,095, One Day of 365

Once a yr., for one of the 1,095 meals the average American eats annually, the homeless are offered free slop. The rest of the yr. they can go fuck themselves. Thank you. I'm sooooo grateful!
“We haven’t seen numbers like this since the Great Depression,” Georgia Berkovich, director of public affairs for the Midnight Mission, said as she described the need for donations and volunteers throughout the entire year.
If homelessness isn't stopped by next yr. when this bullshit holiday comes around I guarantee there will be many fewer houses, & many more vacant lots w/ piles of smoking ash & rubble on them.

But We Repeat Ourself

Annual bugger everything but esp. "Thanks"-"Giving" submission. Don't work too hard, America's editorial cartoonists.

Today In Branding, Real Estate & Deal-Making

Need we remind you that property is theft?
New York Times:
Trump Organization Will Walk Away From Its Struggling SoHo Hotel in New York  —  The announcement came on his television show, “The Apprentice.”  Donald J. Trump would open his second luxury hotel in New York, a “work of art” in the SoHo neighborhood of Manhattan that would become “an awe-inspiring masterpiece.”
Bear in mind that, despite the impression the fake news headlines might give you, Lumpy does not actually own these fucking dumps.
Both properties were examples of the sleight of hand Trump has employed to make himself sound like
a more impressive real estate executive than he was. He owned neither property, but instead managed them and lent his name to the buildings.
