On the Run
SAN DIEGO — The U.S. government posted a $40,000 reward Friday for information leading to the arrest of the Malaysian defense contractor nicknamed “Fat Leonard,” who disappeared weeks before he was set to be sentenced for one of the largest bribery scandals in the nation’s military history.
Leonard Glenn Francis cut off his ankle monitoring bracelet around 7:35 a.m. Sept. 4, 2022, at a San Diego home where he was being held, according to the U.S. Marshals Service. Neighbors reported seeing U-Haul trucks coming and going from the home days before he disappeared.
The Faith of Woke (what are YOUR pronouns?)
The vile, odious cult will not die. It is self-sustaining because it appeals to the most base instincts of the human soul: (1) the desire for results without work, which is greed (2) the desire to see the accomplishments of one’s betters denigrated and destroyed, which is envy (3) the desire for unearned praise, to have your sins called saintly, to have your cowardice called heroism, and to be as a god who decrees reality out of unreality, which is pride (4) retaliation against the happy by the unhappy, which is wrath.
All these evils are called good in the gnostic death cult known as political correctness, or communism, socialism, progressivism, or “wokeness” — so this monstrous cult grants the evil to which all men are prone to free license to do — evil in the name of good.
It’s a Law
Why haven’t they been tried and executed? It has been twenty-one years…
The plea deals may allow the five dependents to escape a potential death penalty, according to CBS. Mohammed is widely credited with being the architect of the 9/11 terror attacks. The other four defendants are Ramzi Binalshibh, Mustafa Ahmed al-Hawsawi, Walid bin Attash and Ammar al-Baluchi.
At the White Wolf Mine
A visitor to the WWM asked if there were any “hiking trails in the area”. I replied that the WWM is surrounded by national forest land and there are a lot of game trails if that’s what you’re after. No, trophy wife of the old SEAL asks, established hiking trails.
“Do you mean tourist trails?”
She referred to what I call “dude trails”, where rocks and roots are scoured from a trail by lesser beings to make a firm and established pathway.
“Some safe trails,” she explained.
I shared that there were a lot of lions out and bow-elk season is underway. Please don’t spoil a hunter’s shot by spooking the game. She wanted to go alone while the old veterans sat on the deck overlooking the valley and swapped war stories.
The reality is that if a mountain lion is going to take you (they’re ambush predators) you’re unlikely to see it before it is on you. Bears generally give you some warning and are not typically aggressive unless you place yourself between a sow and cubs.
The visiting spouse didn’t like the idea of venturing out on game trails (oh, and pack a handgun). Then I got the, “there are lots of hiking trails at Jackson Hole (WY).” There is an army of trust fund baby dude tourists at Jackson Hole…and an army of government employees traipsing around telling you what you can and can not do there too.
“No, we don’t have any of those trails here.”
“Why don’t you pave the road? (to the WWM)”
“Why would I want a paved road?” (moreover why would I want to PAY to pave the road)
Q- “While you guys are talking, is there someplace that I can get my nails done?” (The hiking trail idea has come and gone.)
A- “There’s an Indian Rez joint about an hour and a half east that advertises for hair and nails.”
Q- “Do you have any chablis?”
A- “What about a cold glass of well water?”
