yes, batshit rudy is the only way this guy should be described.

i recall when my girlfriend and i first encountered him. it was at mickey mantle's joint in manhattan. rudy wandered in with a girlfriend and his goombah "pals" for a late night drink.

mantle's joint was virtually empty. my girlfriend and i were at the bar having a nightcap before retiring to the essex house[we were visiting manhattan].

now we became captured by a very inebriated mayor guiliani, his inebriated girlfriend, and his goombah "pals".

it was one of those situations that you hate to be caught up in. there was no way for us to escape that jerk. in fact, mantle's stayed open after hours to accommodate his honor the mayor. and my friend and i had to be captured until he and his entourage finally decided to depart[3AM].

we were pissed. we had an early morning flight to catch. and rudy is not all that pleasant to be around. nor the gunsells that were accompanying him.

i have always operated under the precept that where there is smoke there is fire. so, i would assert that there are hundreds[if not thousands] of stories like this out there in the naked city. and that the msm knows of them.

but fascist bastids that it is composed of, owned by, controlled by, this knowledge will not be related to the sheep.

only at the netroot level can the real rudy be revealed for the alcoholic, philandering, thoroughly dishonest human being that he is.

tear this gangster down from his pedestal.

i feel better now having said this. i shall feel much better when this guy becomes erased from the political lists.

an interesting form of bacteria.

syphilis is a form of spirochete. as is lyme disease.

i often wonder how much dementia has been caused by spirochete bacterial infection.

i do know this, when my mom, suffering from some form of dementia[alzheimer's] was treated with massive amounts of antibiotics[to combat pneumonia], she became much more sentient. as the pneumococcal infection subsided, and the admininstration of antibiotics diminished, her dementia returned.

how much do we really know about spirochetes and their devastation of the cerebral cortex?

very little i think.

this will be my last post for a number of weeks. i am off to the canadian maritimes.

but before i leave my computer behind, consider how the NTSB has responded to the collapse of a bridge[a full inquiry, all debris to be collected for reassembly] and contrast it with how the NTSB avoided such an investigation after the events of the day.

i heard the head of the NTSB call the minneapolis bridge site a crime scene. and that it would be dealt with accordingly.

think on how the "collision with terrain" sites of 11/09/01 were dealt with.

the sites were not preserved as crime scenes.

all the probative evidence was hauled away and destroyed.

no formal investigation was authorized.

in fact, the potus mandated the destruction of the crime scenes and the probative evidence.

i could say so much more. but just watch how this bridge collapse is subjected to more scrutiny than the "collision with terrain" sites of 11/09/01.

lastly, i just caught some usmc gunny with a show on the history channel. he is touring cheyenne mtn, colorado. the home of norad. there was an interesting bit when the gunny was shown the computer screens that monitored every bit of north amerikan airspace in real time.

on that day, the history channel camera aimed at a screen that was focusing on the northeast corridor. i paid a great deal of attention to that. it showed all aircraft flying within a 250 mile radius of new york control.

on 11/09/01, cheyenne mtn personnel watched the events of that day unfold.

to the best of my knowledge, none have ever been questioned. by any entity that would report the results of the questioning to the citizenry.

with this, i close for a few weeks and depart for halifax.

ah, the historical concept of the "secret state".

perhaps it would be more accurate to label it the "unknown state". in the same sense that bruce cumings and jon halliday wrote a history of the amerikan invasion of korea[a history also made into a television documentary by thames television] and entitled it, korean: the unknown war.

now, why was that war "unknown"? because the usg wanted it to be, in the main, unknown to the amerikan electorate.

the enablers of this unknowness was the amerikan press[in that era, largely print].

the virtually "unknown" machinations of the amerikan state are the stuffing of the real historical record.

i start the film with president polk and the invasion of mexico. then we move to the corporate attorney, old honest abe, and his clients. a history that goes unmentioned because the statists decided to propagandize the enshrinement of old honest abe, the most astonishing homicidal maniac in the history of the 19th century.

the homicidal, imperial impulse next surfaces in that wealthy aristocrat teddy roosevelt. but, it is verboten to discuss him in this way.

his successor homicidal maniac is that purported "progressive, woody wilson and his counselor from houston, edward mandel house[and finally, his wife edith].

in my view, the stellar "secret state" action implemented by woody was the 1913 establishment of the federal reserve - a decision forced on him by the real gangsters of amerikan history[warburg, loeb, mellon, morgan, rothschild et alia].
decades later, this story goes unrevealed.

then, of course, there are woody's little wars in the hemisphere. the second invasion of mexico. the invasion of haiti, nicaragua, ad infinitum..

and then there was the war profiteers' paradise, the great war. a boon to all those who forced the creation of the federal reserve.

clare, how much further do i have to go?

well, just a little bit further. let us consider fdr for a moment. without going into his gangsterism for a bit, i have always marveled at how so little of his machinations at war profiteering have gone unexamined.

his first game of reinvigorating the secret state involved his deployment of the office of naval intelligence to spy on everyone and muscle any antagonists.

and then there was his recreation of the propaganda mechanism that woody first employed. similar names. fdr's was labeled the office for the coordination of information. it was the secret agency, run by donovan, to manipulate the usa to going to war.

pearl harbor. often described as a "surprise" attack. here again, this description is/has been a creation of the "unknown state".

there could be no surprise attack in 12/1941. the usa, britain, france, the netherlands declared war on japan in 04-06/1941 with the imposition of the trade and petroleum embargo. embargoes are acts of war. it gets little discussion in this very ignorant country, but after that embargo was declared, japan was within all rights to retaliate.

i could say much more about the recognition among the "white" powers that japan was going to retaliate....that the retaliation was more than expected, preparations were made. pearl harbor was no surprise attack.

i shall end it here for the time being.

what comes next, fdr's creation of a future war in korea when he decided to divide a historically undivided country - korea - at yalta. and truman's exacerbation of this war when he allowed the usa to restore the japanese to ruling roles. in addition to bruce cumings history, ORIGINS OF THE KOREAN WAR. long ago, the most accurate history was written by izzie stone, THE HIDDEN HISTORY OF THE KOREAN WAR.

all of the decisions that provoked these conflicts were "unknown state" decisions.

conspiracies. oh, i know, the state prefers to discredit the idea of conspiracies, but i can assure you, that as a student of history, conspiracies are the armature of history. for example....

in the early pages of your book, you mentioned F O MATTHIESSEN. peter's grandfather, i think.

peter was a yalie. not skull & bones. scroll & key i think. and he became an employee of the outfit. and one of his mission's was to create a cultural bridgehead so as to control ideas....his partner was george plimpton. their cover was known as the paris review.

after plimpton's death, npr's weekend edition devoted the entirety of its air to promoting the false history of the paris review. was this the action of the secret state? i think so.

peter came out last year. was that an act of courage? i don't think so. he was being "outed" in a brit journal that concentrates on examining spookdom. if you don't know it, and you care about the influence of spooks on your life, the life of your country, it is known as LOBSTER. it is devoted to studying the secret state.

and then there is porter goss[yalie,book & snake] and the operation 40 group. another bunch of bushophiles that go undiscussed. another group of the secret state.

in my view, one has to go to great lengths to avoid this knowledge. but, most citizens do.

why is that? i have concluded that most don't want to know how corrupt it all is. they just want to get to the end of their lives without being picked up by the state and renditioned to the amerikan gulags.

so it goes


perhaps some of you out there know of the italian restaurants in manhattan's little italy....where you could eat astonishing amounts of food for very little.

it was a money laundering affair, reportedly.

a few years ago, this scion of a galveston gangster family[las vegas before there was a las vegas], began taking over lots of restaurants. how did that happen? was it the result of the loan-sharking that is all too commonplace in the restaurant racket? i think so.

all those restaurants that borrowed some expensive goodfella money became so troubled that the goodfellas ended up owning their props.

and now, according to the nyt, it seems as if the goodfella may be about to do a bust-out...leaving his financiers high and dry.

tilman was very close to bill & hillary. somehow i think that he was also close to the bushies.

do you like crab cakes?

and don't want to make them yourself?

in my investigation into the deen boys' standards, i tried the market inn cakes.

i scored the maryland cakes a B.

thawed and flattened to a patty, i pan-sauteed them on a gas burner at medium.

2.5 minutes a side.

before serving, sqeezed the juice of a wedge of mexican key lime on them.

very tasty.

in my opinion, these cakes needed a bit more lump.

but, these are better than 99% of the cakes you will ever encounter in restaurants in north amerika.

try 'em. i am sure that you will like them.

a few days ago, i surfed into a foodnetwork show entitled ROAD TASTED.

this is a show hosted by the sons of the savannah queen, paula deen.

on this episode, the boys were in tuscaloosa, at this rib joint. as i watched the rib cooking procedure, i said to myself, there is no way that process could result in edible ribs.

just to confirm that, i ordered up a slab.

now, my factory has at least 4 semi-pro barbequers. we tried these deen-recommended ribs.

absolutely horrible. as i thought when i saw the cooking methodology, they are uncooked.

dreamland ships them purportedly cooked, yet frozen. all you have to do is reheat them.


these ribs have not been cooked sufficiently. tougher than a combat boot.

and the "famous" dreamland sauce....another joke.

as a trout-fisherman, as an entomologist-manque, as a is a day of celebration.

volume 1 of ernie schweibert's last work on trout and aquatic insects, NYMPHS, arrived today.

it is the first half of his summa theologica.

i don't recall when i first encountered ernie. but up until that time, i was a fly-fishing nymph fisherman who was ridiculed by the dry-fly purists. even though i hooked[and released] more fish.

in 1973, ernie published his first commentary on these submarine trout delicacies.

it is in my angling library. it is a classic. along with ernie's masterly 2 volume study on TROUT.

now, this is not to say that i spurned the dry-fly. not at all. but i noted as a very young man that trout consumed more insects under the water surface than on it.

in fact, one of my favorite fishing stories was my first foray into new zealand. in the nelson district. and then the lochy in the wakatipu district. in each instance, my spotters advocated only nymphs. and argued against my ever using dry flys.

i loved it when i took a 8 pounder in the wairau on a #20 barbless elk-hair caddis.

and my favorite sty was putting a #12 rockhopper into an outfall into wakatipu on a cold and rainy day. what a hit. it was like saltwater fishing. when the hook struck, a monstrous fish went airborne, and within seconds he had taken me into the backing. the reel exploded. then my 6 wt loomis rod fractured. the fish was gone. i shall never forget it when it exploded out of the water upon feeling the barbless hook....a good 48 inches long. and very muscular. not a normal trout.

in one sense, i hated being beaten up. in another sense, i loved to see that strong desire of a wild thing to be free.

the next day, i fished the lochy only with dry flys. the toughest presentations imaginable. to get into a position for a drag-free dry fly was tough. i think i hooked and released 4 very large fish. and my gillie/spotter was going bananas. he did not advocate the usage of dry flies. why? because he knew that virtually 90% of the trout diet was underwater[nymphs].

at the end of his life, ernie schweibert distilled much of his entomological observations into what will be a large 2 volume set entitled NYMPHS.

if you have entertained the notion that fishing is just an excuse for goofing-off, i suggest that you delve into ernie's disquistion on the natural world, and how it works.

what a great gift to the world this study is. i would have loved to have talked to ernie in his last years. to have learned what he thought about the bushit "sportsmen" and the murdering of the rivers and streams that he knew.
