Well, Well, Well ...

New York Times:
Israel Knew Hamas's Attack Plan More Than a Year Ago  —  A blueprint reviewed by The Times laid out the attack in detail.  Israeli officials dismissed it as aspirational and ignored specific warnings.  —  Israeli officials obtained Hamas's battle plan for the Oct. 7 terrorist attack
Remember when Bush the Lesser was advised "Bin Laden determined to attack in U.S." & George W.'s response was "You've covered your ass"?
“Israeli officials obtained Hamas’s battle plan for the Oct. 7 terrorist attack more than a year before it happened, documents, emails and interviews show. But Israeli military and intelligence officials dismissed the plan as aspirational, considering it too difficult for Hamas to carry out,” the New York Times reports.

“The approximately 40-page document, which the Israeli authorities code-named ‘Jericho Wall,’ outlined, point by point, exactly the kind of devastating invasion that led to the deaths of about 1,200 people.”

“Hamas followed the blueprint with shocking precision. The document called for a barrage of rockets at the outset of the attack, drones to knock out the security cameras and automated machine guns along the border, and gunmen to pour into Israel en masse in paragliders, on motorcycles and on foot — all of which happened on Oct. 7.”

These are not very intelligent people. Of course, if they had half a brain among them they wouldn't be religious loons & right-wingers. 

P.S.: You may shut your festering gobs about terrorist atrocities & savage barbarism now. You let it happen.

G.F.Y. Is that clear?

Kissinger & Cambodia

Peace Prize, My Ass

Sophal Ear / The Conversation:
Henry Kissinger's bombing campaign likely killed hundreds of thousands of Cambodians − and set path for the ravages of the Khmer Rouge  —  Henry Kissinger, who died on Nov. 29, 2023 at the age of 100, stood as a colossus of U.S. foreign policy.  His influence on American politics lasted long beyond his eight-year stint guiding the Nixon and Ford administrations as national security adviser and secretary of state, with successive presidents, presidential candidates and top diplomats seeking his advice and approval ever since. 
But his mark extends beyond the United States. Kissinger’s policies in the 1970s had immediate impact on countries, governments and people across South America, the Middle East and Southeast Asia. Sometimes the fallout – and it was that – lasted decades; in some places it continues to be felt today. Nowhere is that more true than Cambodia.
Diego Mendoza / Semafor:   Henry Kissinger dies at 100 
Nope, didn't make him no never mind.

The approved euphemism will be "a complex man", as if that excuses what he & Nixon were.

Worst Immigrant Ever Finally
Dead As Doornail At 100

Should never have let scum like Heinz "Henry" Kissinger into this country. Leave it to a piece of shit like Nixon to hire another piece of shit. "Cultivated a reputation". Murderous fucking thug. 

We hope his horse-faced W.A.S.P. wife isn't too sad.

I Don't Know; Is It Me, Or You All?

Every fucking day I wake up w/ an overwhelming urge to strangle all eight billion of you. Is there something wrong w/ me, or could it be the eight billion bozos wasting oxygen, throwing their garbage everywhere & talking shit at the top of their squeaky little rodent voices who are wrong & have no reason to live?

Saturday Sage-Burning

Two more tunes from this reporter's youth appropriated by advertsing agencies, presented here in their entirety,
w/o pimps & hoors yakking over them. Shut the hell up for once, pimps & hos!!Still not understanding why agency creatives hacks, most of whom I assume to be twenty- or thirty-nothings, use so much 50-yr. old music. I didn't think consumers in their sixties were the prime target for the hucksters.

60 Yrs. Ago Today

We imagine that Caroline Kennedy is the only person in that photograph still alive, w/ the possible exception of the blurred squid. The matching outfits are rather creepy, aren't they?


Shitmobiles or Chew Toys?

Look what they're selling you pathetic pieces of plastic shit: Pathetic pieces of plastic shit dogs can tear apart.Now we know what dogs will do w/ cars when they do catch them.

Dog Bites Man Again

Stop us if you've heard this one.
Phil Helsel / NBC News:
Ohio Walmart shooter may have been inspired by racist ideology, FBI says  —  The 20-year-old gunman wounded four people in the shooting in Beavercreek on Monday and then shot himself, police said.  —  The gunman who opened fire at Ohio Walmart this week, injuring four people 
Move along, nothing to see here, just another lone wolf w/ mental health issues. Not a terrorist at all.

Meanwhile, a disgruntled gambler throws a fit w/ his car, & because he happened to hit a border checkpoint the fake news goes nuts w/ TERROR! speculation.

This, however, is what should really be concerning us:
Decent human beings, of course, will be celebrating "Don't Buy Shit From Any Damn Corporation" Friday. Indeed, this reporter's pantry is fully laden & he intends not to unlock the front door of his bunker until sometime Fri. afternoon (Or evening, even.) to check the mail.


And now, the rest of the story ...

"When After All
It Was You And Me"

Kennedy's limousine entered Dealey Plaza at 12:30 p.m. CST. Nellie Connally turned and commented to Kennedy, who was sitting behind her, "Mr. President, they can't make you believe now that there are not some in Dallas who love and appreciate you, can they?" Kennedy's reply – "No, they sure can't" – were his last words.
The Wiki, obvs.
"Didn't bother me 'cause I was still alive."

Dog Bites Man Again

New slogan: "Keep smut out of the schools; bring it back to the churches."
Chris Brennan / The Philadelphia Inquirer:
The ‘faith-based’ leader for Philly's Moms for Liberty chapter is a registered sex offender  —  Phillip Fisher Jr. is a pastor and Republican ward leader who coordinates faith-based outreach for Philadelphia's Moms for Liberty chapter.He's also a registered sex offender … 
Ryan Bort / Rolling Stone:
Right-Wing ‘Moms for Liberty’ Organizer Is a Convicted Sex Offender  —  Phillip Fisher Jr., who does faith-based outreach for the group in Philadelphia, abused a 14-year-old in 2011, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported on Monday  —  MOMS FOR LIBERTY is a conservative parental rights group … 
So, Newsbusters, just how is this going to keep Moms Against Knowledge from losing more influence?

Pogrom In The West Bank

It's a horrible war crime when Hamas does it. Not so much when Israeli settlers commit the atrocities.

Blood On The Streets

David Zipper / Fast Company:
You shouldn't be driving over 100 mph—and your car shouldn't let you  —  The NTSB recommended that automakers be required to install technology to prevent reckless speeding.  —  The traffic signal on North Las Vegas's North Commerce Street had been red for at least 29 seconds, but the Dodge Challenger did not slow down.
Note that the concept is too much to handle for the cretin from RedState. Can't die in a fiery crash too soon for me.

The System Is A Fraud

Ordered these:

25 mm x 50 mm x 75 mm Steel-Hardened Metric Precision 123 Gauge Blocks (2-Pack)

But this was delivered:
Looks nice, but I already have one, & I certainly don't need a heavy-duty eight-meter measure. I do need those 1-2-3 blocks 'though. Looks as if Home Despot's City of Commerce warehouse will be on the receiving end of a shooting spree. Someone must pay for this incompetence. 

Misdirected threat correction: Pkg. originated in Perris. Commerce was where it changed trucks. If you work at a Home Despot facility in Perris, quiver in fear. The time of reckoning is nigh.

I don't think that word means what you think it means, you illiterate, cretinous parasite.

Nothing To See Here ...

Other than X CEO Linda Yaccarino admitting there are "toxic posts" on X.
 Eric Hananoki / Media Matters for America:
As Musk endorses antisemitic conspiracy theory, X has been placing ads for Apple, Bravo, IBM, Oracle, and Xfinity next to pro-Nazi content  —  CEO Linda Yaccarino previously claimed that brands are “protected from the risk of being next to” toxic posts  —  Update (11/16/23) …
Is this the same I.B.M. that helped the Nazis w/ the Holocaust? When'd they get pissy about anti-semitism? Fucking hypocrites.

Last Round-Up Against The Stupid

Last Post, Please Read  —  Good morning.  This is Zandar's Dad.  I am sorry to tell you that he passed away over the weekend, peacefully in his sleep.  Fortunately, his computer was on and open to this page but I don't know if I will be able to post again.  This blog was Jon's passion.
I certainly hope it was peaceful.

Zandar Dead At 48

Woeful Wednesday

His father let us know.
As I said, this blog is his pride and joy. In many ways, it is his legacy.
Zandar's last post.

Last yr. The Big Bad Bald Bastard, now this. Fucking horrible, & entirely unjust.

Rooting Out The Vermin

"Bim! Kill 'Im!"

Is it paranoia to imagine that rooting out terrorists (& children) in Gaza is a test run for rooting out "the communists, Marxists, fascists and the radical left thugs that live like vermin within the confines of our country". Note that Defendant Trump didn't say word one about rooting out Nazis.

2024 could be the proverbial (& cliched) long, hot summer, epecially if it's a long, hot summer, & there's no reason to believe it won't be. Blow up a few power stations & cut off the unwashed masses' air conditioning & it's War in ah Babylon on this side of the globe too.

Landlords Seek To Evict Tenants, "Gentrify" Neighborhood

Not all Jewish people, but apparently a majority of Israelis.

The Israeli public has embraced the Smotrich doctrine

The internalization of the far-right minister's 'Decisive Plan' is evident in the popular support for a new ultimatum for Gaza: emigration or annihilation.

Another cretinous country heard from:

US will take massive hit in global standing over Israel

Washington's seeming refusal to use its leverage to stop civilian carnage may do more damage than even the Iraq War, say experts.

"Hate March" In London

Compare & Contrast

Sixty Years Ago Today

Eleven days later ... and 14 days later the murdered President returned to Arlington for his final visit.

P.T.S.D. Sufferers Day

Talk about indoctrination!
And sheer bullshit. No American military personnel or use of force has ever had anything to do w/ "keeping us free", whatever the fuck that means. What few freedoms the sheep are allowed come from legislation, the courts & the Constitution. Let's see how much longer any of that lasts, chumps.
Remember, our boys & girls murdered millions around the world so you could shop at the mall &/or give multi-billionaire Bezos a commission on everything you buy. That's real freedom.
