A Wish For A Happy Chanukah/Hanukkah 2021... all who celebrate. The festival of lights,or f the rededication of the temple, commences this evening, Sunday November 28th, with the lighting of the first candle on the menorah. The candles of the menorah are lit to celebrate the rededication of the Jewish holy temple after the Syrian-Greek occupying army was driven from Israel by a relatively small band of Jews under the leadership of Judah the Maccabee. The temple had been defiled by the Syrian-Greeks and when the Jews went to light the temple's seven branched menorah, they found they had enough oil for only one night. Somehow, that oil wound up lasting 8 days. The menorah today has nine flames, one for each of the 8 days/nights the oil lasted when the temple was rededicated and the shamash, a helper or attendant flame, from which to light the others.

I Have Little To Say On The Arbery Case...

 ...and that is because I think we saw justice done with the guilty verdicts (more on the verdicts at the source). To me, a few seeming yahoo type rednecks apparently decided to take justice into their own hands and chased down a man about whom the police should have been called and been notified of his alleged suspicious activity and the whole thing left at that. There was no need for vigilante justice (which by the way I believe this case involved and the Rittenhouse case did not). This was obviously, in my view, not a case of self-defense nor even close to it. The only person who evidently tried to defend himself was Mr. Arbery from what seems to me to have been a mouth breeding redneck crusader (and his father and their friend), who despite possible good intentions, seemingly had no just cause to point his gun at Mr. Arbery. Nor I think did the three of them have just cause to stop him thus effecting a possible arrest but that is debatable dependent upon state law differing from my opinion on that matter. As I said, I think they should have called the police, reported Mr. Arbery and their suspicions and left it at that.
I think it was a very sad case of over zealous citizens trying to do right but screwing up badly in the extreme thus resulting in the killing of another person without any justification.
As for all the BLM and Black Pussies Panther and their apparent racist rhetoric (yes meaning those groups are racist in my opinion) and their evident terroristic threats of violence - the police should be investigating and arresting some of them.

There Was A Name Given To Fauci Types...

 ...back in the1940s, all of the 1950s and much of the 1960s. After all scientists, and let us remember Fauci is supposedly a scientist, gave us things back then like penicillian, plastic, space travel, jet planes, the polio vaccine and so on. Those are all great things given to us by great men - good scientists.

Of course, scientists back then also perfected (to a point) germ & chemical warfare, created: atomic weapons, DDT, what were up until then unimaginable poluttants and performed extremely cruel exepriments on & killed millions of people.

Today, we have Anthony Fauci and his reported work to make the Corona Virus more effective at infecting humans. We also have all of the mind boggling  conflicting information he has told us about Covid-19 and his part in creating it and how to prevent catching it. All the while, he essentially portrays himself as the expert scientist who is saving us from it but only after first helping to create what may become our 12 Monkeys moment.

Such scientists, like Fauci, in those prior decades, were often portrayed in the media, books and movies and most definitely were thought of as anything but great men. In fact, they were given a moniker that I think fits Anthony Fauci to perfection. They were called the title and he should forever be known as the same, as an Evil Scientist. 

I wonder, if only he would soon meet the fate of many of those so labelled in the past, would our world be a much safer place? Just a thought but my guess is yes we would be safer. I think we do not need any more Josef Mengele types to, in effect, perform their experiments at the expense of the human race.

All the best,

Rittenhouse Acquitted - I Was Out Walking Skye... .

...about 30 minutes ago or so when I saw the news, here, that Kyle was acquitted on all counts. 

I wish I could have been a fly on the wall, so to speak, in that jury room. As it stands now, I am hopeful that at least a few in the jury will explain what went on during their deliberations which they are legally free to discuss - and get paid beaucoup bucks by the media - now that the trial is over. Of course, they are under no obligation to do so but my bet is that the defense has already tried to discuss it with them or will do so shortly if not done already and so will the media. My guess is as it was before, that it was probably only one or two jurors who were holdouts for a guilty verdict. I am guessing they were persuaded of his innocence after reviewing the information that was supplied to them last night or the night before, by the judge, as to what constituted self-defense.

There evidently is hope for America, our Constitution, our legal system and out right to defend ourselves. Justice was done. As for the media, they should hang their heads in shame for the lies they told about the defendant. As for the prosecutor, I believe he should face possible charges for prosecutorial misconduct. As I see it, he lied in his opening statement, lied in his closing statement, mislead the jury time and time again and disobeyed long standing legal precedents and the orders of the judge about those precedents at least a few times. There is no way that man should ever again be allowed to try a case. Just the fact that he charged Mr. Rittenshouse with illegal possession of a short barreled rifle without ever having measured the barrel showed he was coming at this case from a purely political point of view in my opinion and the other things I mentioned compounded the fact that he was not after justice but only the fame he would have gained had he been able to convict Mr. Rittenhouse.

I should note, the first verdict read was the key that all the others would be not guilty, that is if I have the layers and there roles correct. The count involving the death of Joseph Rosenbaum was the one Mr. Rittenhouse had to beat. Mr. Rosenbaum, if I got it right, was the unarmed man that he killed.He also was the one trying to go after Rittenhouse to take his rifle from him and who had said prior to that that he was going to kill Rosenbaum and another man if he could catch them alone. I think there could have been no question that Kyle Rittenhouse defended himself against the two others he shot - that those two shootings were in self-defense almost seem undeniable if tried by reasonable jurors. I believe that only the shooting of Rosenbaum was even faintly questionable by reasonable jurors but it was my personal belief, after hearing testimony, that shooting was most definitely self-defense. I have been wrong and right about such things before but would bet I am right on this one but only jurors openly discussing what went on in the jury room could confirm or deny my belief.

As for Kyle, I wish him the best of luck in the civil lawsuits that I anticipate he will,face. I also hope he will be able to get beyond the trauma of killing fellow human beings. He will likely forever, at least in some way, feel guilt for having done so no matter how justified was he. The other thing he will need to overcome is the mental trauma of an unjust prosecution. That it was emotionally destructive can be seen by his response to the verdicts. 

As for the defense team, my hat goes off to them. The small donation I made to Mr. Rittenhouse's defense was not wasted. I will forever wonder if the prosecutor was as inept and corrupt as he appeared to be or if he was in fact a supporter of Mr.Rittenhouse because I am of the opinion that he did almost as much as the defense team to assure that Mr. Rittenhouse would be found not guilty as did they. It is ironic but he may actually deserve some credit for Kyle's acquittal! 

Lest I forget, my hat goes off to the judge. He was spot on the way he handled this case and as to the legality of the issues at hand. He has a lot of courage as I think many judges would have allowed the prosecutor to get away with what I see, and I am certain the judge saw, as his misconduct during and before the trial. That he did not call a mistrial based upon prosecutorial misconduct but rather allowed the case to move forward which in the long run, with the acquittal, is much better for Mr. Rittenhouse. The judge, by upholding proper jurisprudence, probably painted a target on his own back at which one must fear lunatic leftists will take aim. He is undoubtedly a courageous and just man.

All the best,

The Partial Lunar Eclipse...

 ...going on right now as I type and almost at its peak, over Texarkana, TX, right now is absolutely stunning. A small sliver of the moon looks its normal color and the remainder of it looks sort of Mars like red. There is only a small sliver of it that is not eclipsed. They say it is the longest partial eclipse in about 600 years. It began, hereabouts, at 0002 and will end at 0603. Six hours and one minute is a damned long eclipse! 
Hopefully it will be a good omen for Kyle Rittenhouse and will bring him verdicts all of not guilty later today!

All the best,
Glenn B

There Are Three Reasons...

 ...which come to my mind as to why the Rittenhouse jurors have not yet returned a verdict. Two are bad for Kylee and one is good. 

One is that they have one or two holdouts who do not agree with the rest of the jurors. So if 10 or 11 are voting not guilty, the other one or two are voting guilty regardless of the overwhelming evidence supporting his defense of self-defense. Of course it could lean in the other direction of only one or two for acquital. Either way, this is not good for Kyle and could wind up as a mistrial with it being tried again before another judge who is not as strict about prosecutorial misconduct.

Another is that they are leaning toward convicting him of at least one major count and are deciding on that one. Also not good for Kyle.

The third is they are already of a consensus to acquit but are essentially just wasting time to make it look as if they deliberated a good long time before arriving at a verdict. This is good although admitedly nerve wracking for a defendant

Hoping for not guilty on all counts,

Glenn B

A Verdict by 130 PM Or Sooner...

 ...would most likely be good for Kyle Rittenhouse. It would be a long enough deliberation for the jurors to say they were seriously at it long enough. It also gives them time for lunch on the government. 

Much longer than that might be a big problem for Kyle. Of course while you can never predict, with certainty, what a jury will do, those are my guesses. I have some fair amount of experience with criminal prosecutions and trials and base my guesses on that. The earliest I see that they could come back with a verdict is after 2 hours in the jury room but then they would miss free lunch!
All the best,

Tonight I Will Say A Prayer...

 ...for verdicts of not guilty in the Kyle Rittenhouse case. I do not pray often, in fact I rarely do so but if there really is a God or gods, maybe he or she or them will see me praying and figure it must be important because I pray so rarely. One can have hope my prayer (and probably many of yours relative to this) will be answered. The man is assuredly not guilty when based upon the facts. The prosecution should be ashamed of itself for not only continuing the trial after their own witnesses gave credence to Rittenhouse's claim of self defense but because it is obvious the prosecution made several attempts to force a mistrial and also made several totally bogus claims when those claims are compared to the actual evidence and testimony of witnesses. 
To think, they even tried to charge Mr. Rittenhouse with a misdemeanor charge of having  possessed an illegal weapon saying it was a short barreled rifle. In fact, they had not even taken the time or made the effort to measure the barrel's length until so ordered by the judge as I understand it. When it was finally measured, it proved not to be a short barreled rifle but I guess that did not matter to the prosecutors when the charge was filed! What amazing frauds they apparently are in as much as they are supposed to be seeking justice and not to be promoting a bogus trial in a kangaroo court as it seems is all they have been doing.

All the best,
Glenn B

Why Does The Rittenhouse Prosecutor,...

...whom I consider, in my opinion, to be nothing more than a lying unjust moronic arsehat, have his right index finger where it is in the below photo? Take a look, then think about it, it could have turned out just like the shooting on the film set in Hollyweird recently. 
Besides him being what I think is a lying sack of turd he is obviously an outright idiot if in fact that was the actual rifle used by Kyle Rittenhouse when he defended himself (note the optics that appeared on it from news photos of the actual incident are now absent).

 Prosecutor holds AR-15 in court to demonstrate how Rittenhouse held weapon
Too bad it did not have a live round in the chamber and that he did not put the bullet into the courtroom wall or ceiling; of course I say too b ad but only if he did so without hurting anyone. I am sure his carer would have ended right then and there as I think it should end. I almost cannot believe to what a moronic libtard level this guy seemingly has reduced himself during this trial. The only way he can win is if there are similar morons on the jury. If that happens, my bet is the defense will be granted a mistrial.
All the best,
Glenn B

Penicillin & Doxycycline Will Cost Extra

Yes folks, an Austrian brothel has come up with a surefire way to increase the percentage of folks, at least males, who voluntarily get the Covid-19  vaccination. They are offering a free 30 minute romp with a woman of choice IF they come into the brothel to get vaccinated onsite. Yep, the Austrian government is allowing a brothel to administer the vaccination. Their business has not been as good as it is now for a long time.

In fact, they claim they are also vaccinating women and young males 14 and over (if accompanied by an adult). My bet is that teens have been begging mommy, or at least daddy, to take them to get the shot; although, somehow I do not think the free sex applies to the teens but who knows. More at the source including the video (if it does not show above) of a fairly hot nurse/hooker!

All the best,

Happy Veterans' Day To All Who Served Honorably

To all who have served honorably in our military, I wish you all the best today and always. You have done your country proud by your honorable service and we owe you for that. It is a crying shame you are all too often not given the respect you deserve by your fellow Americans. 

I think, all Americans should take at least a few moments today to salute you today so that all of us remember and honor your commitment to protect and serve the USA.

With respect and thanks,

How Do I Get A Job With Project Veritas (Serious Inquiry)

The FBI, under the Brandon Biden Administration, has allegedly raided the homes Project Veritas journalists under the authority of (a) Grand Jury Subpoena(s) and (a) search warrant(s). This apparently all over a diary that belonged to Slow Joe's daughter and was alleged to have been stolen and then came into the possession of Project Veritas. 
Think of that - the FBI is evidently/reportedly investigating project Veritas over a stolen personal diary! Have you ever heard of them investigating such a crime before - the alleged theft of a diary!!! Now imagine, the scumbags agents and or assistant U.S. Attorney(s) who wrote up the Grand Jury subpoena(s) had the unmitigated gall to "request" that Project Veritas journalists keep the Grand Jury investigation secret even though they seemingly were the target of it! From whom did the FBI want the Project Veritas journalists to keep the GJ subpoena(s) secret - from the journalist's attorneys maybe!   
Yet somehow, the NY Slimes Times (what I used to think was once an excellent newspaper but that I think has turned into maybe even less than a leftist promoting propaganda yellow journalism type rag) contacted Project Veritas officials asking for comment on the so called secret Grand Jury investigation! 
I sure would like to hear all the information from both sides on this one but somehow I seem somewhat predisposed to already believe the Project Veritas side of it. Let's face it, each time I have seen one of their exposes it has been just that - an expose of the untruths told by leftists. Never once have I seen a Project Veritas report debunked but I have seen many of their reports in which they squarely outed a lot of lying scum on the left. In addition, with my past familiarity with and working knowledge of the SDNY and of having worked on several collateral investigations with the FBI, my money is on this being solely politically motivated and possibly illegal investigation. More here:
I have to say, I'd love to be able to work with the folks at Project Veritas. I spent 32 plus years in law enforcement with the federal government and did not engage in behavior that violated people's constitutional, natural or human rights. I was and remain proud of the work that I did and the way I did it with integrity. I hated the scum with whom I worked that did not have a similar ethic or regard for the Constitution and people's constitutional rights (although most I knew and worked with had integrity some few in my experience did not and they were reprehensible). 
I was and am proud to be a United States Citizen and a former but now retired federal agent & officer / civil servant. I firmly supported and still do support the Constitution and our rights & liberties that we citizens & legal resident aliens are afforded within our Constitutional Republic. I despise what our nation has and continues to become - one filled with leftist loons who advocate for anti-American goals, who hate our Constitution, who promote or even commit criminal activity, who wish to unleash anarchy by destroying law enforcement and criminal justice and who lie and cheat at every possible moment to further their cause of so called progressiveness. I detest those who make a mockery of our nation, our laws and our rights & liberties in order to advance leftism, anarchy, communism, socialism or fascism - those who would literally destroy the United States of America and kill off or enslave those who support this country and her Constitution. If I could expose them and bring the truth about them to light so as to debunk them and prevent them from destroying our great nation, the way these folks do so at Project Veritas, it would be an honor to do so and I would do so with unfailing love for the USA and with great eagerness and pride!
All the best,
Glenn B

Ten Years and a Day

 Yesterday was an important anniversary for me. Well, maybe not that important since when I remembered it last night, I was too lazy to get up, walk over to my laptop and write this post. At least I am doing it today as I sit here under blue skies in the sunshine of a crisp chilly November morning at the local dog park. I brought Skye here to romp and up until right now she has been chasing squirrels. That changed, a moment ago, as a young lady with another dog just came in. I digress so let me get back on course.

Today is the day after the 10 year anniversary of my retirement from federal service. Retirement has been good to me and mostly agreeable & enjoyable so far. 

Maybe more importantly though is that it is the day after the 10 year year anniversary of my last day of cancer treatments. The day the docs assured me there was still hope. They did that because my tumors were still large. They told me that both the radiation and chemo treatments would keep working for weeks after being last administered. They did not instill much hope within my psyche which was pretty much devastated after 7 weeks of torturous treatments. I maye have had a little bit of hope after hearing their words but a little bit may be an over statement because the tumors were still large and fear filled my soul much more than did hope. 

Luckily for me, lots of fear and a bit of hope were not all I had that day. I had family & friends who stood by me. With their help, what hope I had grew a bit more each day as they urged me stay hopeful. Had they not, I might have considered another option, one I would rather not think of now.

They worked - both the treatments and being hopeful. In March 2012,  my cancer was diagnosed as being "resolved". That is the best word, I think, that a cancer patient can hear. So, here I am today living another day in Paradise 10 years and a day after my last treatment and after my retirement day. Whoopee. 

All the best,
Glenn B

Wasted Some Time At A Gun Show This Past Weekend...

...and I do mean wasted. I attended the Conway, AR gun show along with Brendan (not Brandon) and we had two tables. To say it was a waste of our time may be an understatement as it wound up being a waste of money too. That was because along with the money to rent the table, there is the cost of whatever you are trying to sell plus gas and food and such. Then there is AR sales tax on whatever you sell at the show. I sold almost nothing (even though my ammo prices were all at cost); I probably lost a bit more more than what I sold, accounting comes later. I was trying to merely recoup money for some prior purchases of things I do not need and was hoping for at least my expenses back. You win some - you lose some. Of course, it was nice spending time with Brendan and Skye who was a good pooch throughout - I always enjoy that but the gun show itself was not productive and was a tedious effort.
I made the rounds too, thinking of buying a Remington 870, 12 gauge, 20" smoothe-bore barrel with rifle sights but had no luck finding one. I must have seen a half dozen or more barrels for 870s but not the one for which I was looking. I also saw lots of guns and ammo for sale but the prices were outrageous even though prices have gone down considerably from what they were a few to several months ago. Some - if not most - of the dealers still were asking super-high prices for ammo. 
There was the nothing special for sale that I saw but there was an admittedly a fairly nice shape Mosin Nagant 91-30. The thing about that was it had an asking price of $650! Wait a moment - I almost forgot - there actually was at least one thing that was well worth the asking price. I am kicking myself in the butt for not buying a Marlin 336 in 30-30, in apparently great shape, that someone was waiting with on the line outside. He was asking $400 and like an idiot I said no. Another guy walked up right then and asked how much and said "I'll take it" as soon as he heard the price. In my defense, I had had a terrible night's sleep and was still half asleep but that is a poor excuse for not making a buy like that nowadays!
The previous weekend, I was at  gun show in Longview TX. I pretty much broke close to even there. While there, I did manage to pick up two 12 gauge barrels for a Remington 870. One was an 18" smooth-bore with bead front sight and the other a 20" fully rifled barrel. The price on them was not too bad for the pair and they are both in excellent shape. The 20 " smoothe-bore with rifle sights eluded me there too. 
All the best,
Glenn B
