The Path to the Swamp

Bullet Points:

** Matt Walsh suggests that you don’t get/adopt (whatever)/own a dog and explains why.

** I just heard that O. J. Simpson is voting for Biden/Harris in 2024.

** The self-cleaning public restroom of tomorrow…I’d pay to use one.

** Congressman Dan Crenshaw is now called “Eyepatch McCain,” and “Deadeye McCain.”

** The Daily Mail reported, “Joe Biden suggests his uncle was eaten by ‘CANNIBALS’ after his plane was shot down over Papua New Guinea during World War Two.”

** Weapons of war in civilian hands are the precise point of the Second Amendment. We were born as a nation on that Principle. When the British marched on Concord on April 19, they did so to disarm the King’s Subjects. We fought a war so as not to be subjects of anyone. We elect people to represent us — but they now consider us their subjects.

** Part of marriage is asking another person if they have any thoughts on dinner for the rest of your life — until death do you part.

** If you lie to the government, it’s a crime. If the government lies to you, it’s politics.

** The Daily Mail reported, “The president of Poland became the latest foreign leader to beat a path to President Donald Trump’s door last night as the world prepares for his possible return to the White House.” The Democrats had a great plan to force him to stay in NYC for an 8-week trial under the threat of jail. They overlooked how his self-promotion abilities would work because he was stuck in the world’s media capital. He began with a trip to Harlem on Monday that had them singing the national anthem. If there’s one thing that the democrat party hates worse than the flag, it’s black people singing the national anthem with enthusiasm. Of course, it’s racist.

** Israeli military pilots say, “It’s about time we have the opportunity to get the five kills required to be an ace.” (h/t Claudio)

** Breitbart reported, “On Monday, New York’s Democrat Gov. Kathy Hochul celebrated her victory of getting mostly everything she wanted in her $237 billion budget fight, including an additional $2.4 billion in spending for migrants.”

The luxury hotels of NYC thanks her because, without state money to house illegals, the hotels would collapse because nobody goes to New York anymore—too many illegal aliens. In a related story, Gateway Pundit reported, “African illegals at a New York City Council meeting complained about the free (taxpayer-funded) food and housing provided to them.”

** The House impeached Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas for not securing the border, but the Senate refused to try him. DC treats the Constitution like a suggestion box.

** Lighten up a bit with funnies from Old NFO.



The precise timing of cyber and HUMINT  made the mission successful. The entire IRCG command in Syria was eliminated with one single shot. The attack used high-precision munition.

Bloomberg further reports that General Muhammad Reza Zahedi and his deputy, Muhammad Hadi Rahimi, and other officers who were killed were convinced that the consul building near the embassy “is the safest” in Damascus and that Israel would not dare to attack the place. Shortly before, the residences of the ambassador and the consul were supposed to be moved to a new apartment complex further down the same street, where the two brothers of the Syrian president, Bashar al-Assad, also live. Shortly before the attack, the senior echelon of the Syrian Revolutionary Guards met on the second floor of the consul building and decided to stay there at the last minute.

The dramatic assassination of the Iranian consulate in Syria led Iran to respond and attack Israel directly. Immediately after the assassination, Iran expressed suspicion that Syrian officials were involved in many assassinations of members of the Revolutionary Guards in the country’s territory over the past few years. The suspicion focuses on 18 commanders who were eliminated within just a few months in attacks attributed to Israel. This is according to a Syrian expatriate who opposes the Assad Govt. and claims to have spoken with an Iranian official.

After the assassination of Reza Mousavi in ​​Syria in December 2023, a joint investigation was opened between the two countries, conducted by their intelligence services, and tried to trace a possible security breach. However, at a certain point, Iran chose to open an independent investigation together with Hezbollah. This was due to concerns that Syrian intelligence was interfering with the investigation. The independent investigation led to the conclusion that the security breaches and leaks that led to the assassination were under a high-level political and security cover and that it is unlikely that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad was unaware of this.

The same source added that what increased the suspicions in Tehran was that the Hezbollah members who were eliminated on the territory of the country were connected to the Syrian security services. Their elimination was made possible by the possibility of espionage using advanced technology. The source even sends an unprecedented accusation against Syria, according to which it acted to get rid of Iranian influence.


Pizza Fries? Give Pizza Chants

Please, give pizza chants. But be careful if you crack open a Bud Light.


A Fine Single Malt is Medicine?

Winston Churchill’s doctor’s note allowed him unlimited alcohol during Prohibition in the United States in 1932. Today USGOV wouldn’t allow him his Cuban cigars…Romeo y Julieta and the now-defunct La Aroma de Cuba.


A Historical Moment

THE LARGEST MASS SHOOTING IN US HISTORY HAPPENED on December 29, 1890. When 297 Sioux Indians at Wounded Knee Creek on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota were murdered by federal agents & members of the 7th Cavalry who had come to confiscate their firearms “for their safety and protection.”

The slaughter began after the majority of the Sioux had peacefully turned in their firearms. The Army started shooting and managed to wipe out the entire camp. 200 of the 297 victims were women and children. Wounded Knee was among the first federally-backed gun confiscation attempts in United States history. It ended in the senseless murder of 297 people.

Hint: this aircraft only has USA livery because it was captured.


Hint: Not a P-61 (don’t be tempted) and not even close to a P-38


The war ended, and only one flying prototype was completed.


Red Mist

Red Mist

Legends endure for a reason. Sometimes, they survive to impel our cultural hubris. Occasionally, they endure because they instill a sense of focus on what was and perhaps a vision of what will be. They are always a reminder. When they come back to haunt us, things start to get interesting.

A very much-in-love couple in Iceland visits a historic site, and suddenly, he throws himself into a volcano, burning to a crisp in front of her eyes. Afterward, it is always raining.

The dwindling North Sea oil supply is suddenly rejuvenated with a discovery: a vast oil field of light, sweet, and crude oil worth billions. Exploration, drilling, and pumping begin to breathe life into a faltering industry, and just as things seem to be going well, the oil is polluted with radioactive thorium.

US Army Special Forces operators in Iceland on an exercise are drawn into a crisis, and as NASA withdraws, they boldly face the challenge. All but one are rendered insane, and the memory of Red Mist turns into a quest for answers – one that the CIA already has.

In Texas, a political fixer is called on to deal with a situation and finds himself completely out of his depth.

In England, a psychologist’s life is turned upside down as a skald makes a disturbing prophecy.

In China, aggressive experiments in neutrino research have created a completely unforeseen disaster and portend a global cataclysm of Biblical proportions.

Just when you’re sure that you have all the answers and are confident that the science is settled, it isn’t.

  1. Dan Crenshaw, O.J., and NY’s budget? You have achieved the rare journalism hat trick. Congratulations!

  2. Self Cleaning Toilet…too bad we can’t do that with Congress every term.
    $237B NY budget- Talk about whistling past the graveyard. Wonder where all the “revenue” is coming from as people are leaving NYC in droves as TPTB install new ‘non citizen” Democrat voters in the 5-Stars?
    Crenshaw has clearly been breathing too much tainted DC air, that guy needs a Cesspool exorcism to regain balance…which will never happen as once assimilated by the DC Borg one cannot escape, short of committing suicide with a double tap to the head.
    Sidebar: Managed to get through half of the Rogan-Carlson 3 hour “chat” last night. It is enlightening and thought-provoking to say the least, and fits a lot of what those of us who are paying attention already believe but can’t quite put our finger on. For most American’s, what we think we know…we don’t know squat. The Cesspool is so deep and so entrenched I fear we will never right the heeled-over ship to regain The Constitution. The graft and criminality (eg. Trump on trial, to keep him sidelined and on the bench) are untouchable in our modern era of sensibility (us, not them). Scary stuff.

      1. The Swamp goes all the way to the backbone now, not just of the US, but it impacts the whole planet. Their slogan is, “Get your 666 today and come on in for the big win.”

          1. The permanent Washington establishment (aka the Swamp) doesn’t cycle with elections. Politicians are elected with Swamp money.

          2. Elections are an illusion, having become a way to assuage the General Public who are simply trying to maintain their lives in the midst of chaos created by the same people who install people into positions that we think we voted into office. Circular…like the toilet drain once flushed only we’re the ones taking the trip around the porcelain bowl.

    1. Not the XF-11. XF-11 crew nacelle extended only from the rear of the wing forward. There was no rearward compartment. It really looked like a stretched P-38.

  3. How many Syrian military officers were killed in this attack on the Iranian consulate? Or is that a typo?

    1. The number isn’t a typo. 18 were assassinated/killed before the attack and the attack got what was left. The number present at the time of attack was not mentioned. As I understand it, about 20 (included some bodyguards). Assad cosigned on it to rid Syria of Iranian leadership.

  4. Churchill’s booze: Today you can’t hardly find an MD to write a note exempting you from the mRNA jab.

    But you can get prescriptions for pot easy-peasy. And if you’re a child who wants to be permanently mutilated by have a double mastectomy, or your penis cut off, well, there are legions (“we are Legion”) of MDs and PhDs eager to help. And they will form a wall between that child and his or her parents, because permanent physical and psychological iatrogenic mutilation is apparently none of the parents’ business.

      1. X2 with trust for Mike. I also trust my physicians and my urologist, for example. None of them are pro-jab. I will say that if somebody (anybody) sexually mutilated one of my grandchildren, they’d meet Satan, who would greet them with open arms. Accidents happen.

  5. Stick one of those self-cleaning public bathrooms in the Port Authority, it’ll be on fire in 25 minutes, tops.
    Too bad Joe Biden didn’t go looking for his dad and also get eaten by cannibal headhunters.
    – Kle.

    1. We need one of those contraptions in Congress. Only with a lot more volume, and a hydrochloric acid rinse cycle, and set to run every two years.

      And yeah, I do know the senate is a 6 year term. Two years is close enough for gubmint work.

        1. Noted. I shall amend the specifications prior to issuance of the bid packages. Who wants a set?

          1. A BID? They Swamp doesn’t use actual bids. You quote a billion per toilet and the bitcoin arrives from Gaza or Ukraine.

  6. They had self-cleaning public toilets (or toilettes?) in Paris in the mid-90s. I think it cost a franc. Built as a cylinder, it kind of clamshelled open, and
    then shut behind you when you stepped inside. They were slightly damp inside and smelled of soap. After you did your thing and exited it would close
    up again and you could hear it hose itself out. This would have been summer of 1996.

      1. They had them in the central park in Oslo in front of the National Assembly building – same clamshell French design. Worth a euro.

  7. It just occurred to me that you are probably creating the lead pictures in AI. They are always interesting and I spend a few moments looking at them and attempting to understand what they are depicting. Somewhat like your identify the tank / plane sections and all the written conten. Thank you for it all.

    1. Yes, they are all AI. I love the art value even though people seem to dismiss AI. It’s here. Maybe the world will all work for Emperor Surly when the machines make their move for supremacy.

      1. Why does it not surprise me you’ve delved into AI graphics…they are incredible and can’t be t-h-a-t easy to get just right.

  8. Pizza Fries? Ugh, no. Blargh….

    As to Crenshaw, I saw through his cover after about 3 months of his first term in Congress. Sadly, Fetterman is proving to be more of a Republican than Crenshaw.

    1. X2 – Crenshaw is as ambitious as Lucifer. Fetterman is just a big guy who went through therapy and they rethreaded his bolt as “Republican” to the chagrin of the donkeys.

    1. Yeah, $1.7 million, but it wasn’t a smart toilet. Just a one-hole job. They could have left one of those plastic porta-potties on the corner and changed it out every month or so and pocketed the loot – which is close to how it ended up.

      1. Read the cost to unclog one toilet on the USS Ronald Regan cost $400,000.00 to John Q Taxpayer. Something to do with the vaccum system that connects all shitters onboard. With that being said, would being the “Phantom Shitter” that drops that load constitute a NJP able offense? Fourty-five days confinement to bread and water in the brig? Keelhauling? haha
