Happy Feet Friday

The highly talented Freddie Wilkens turns "Johnny B. Goode" every which way but loose, applying a variety of styles, from rock and roll to boogiw woogie to stride.

Uh oh, they're on to us

"Iran Accuses West of Using Reptiles as Nuclear Spies".

Lest we forget

Updated and bumped: The great Kurt Schlichter squeezes the media like it's Play-Doh.

The mainstream media fell all over itself idolizing the sister of North Korea's dictator when she put in an appearance at the Winter Olympics, but let's try to keep some perspective, shall we?

Leftists screw up everything

People are fleeing the San Francisco area in droves, and not just because of the high cost of living. Carole Dabak, a forty-year Bay-area resident who is moving to Nashville, Tennessee, had this to say: “'We don’t like it here anymore. You know, we don’t like this sanctuary state status and just the politics here,' she said."

As more people like Carole Dabak leave, the state will resolve itself into a more concentrated, "purer" form of Leftism, which should nudge California closer to political and economic implosion, but, in any event, will provide the rest of us with a case study of what's in store for the whole country if the progressives triumph everywhere.

Don't make me laugh

Unmitigated scoundrel (and former Attorney General) Eric Holder is supposedly considering a run for the presidency in 2020.

The last thing we need is an Obama clone in the White House (the original was bad enough).


Mallory Millet, sister of late arch-feminist Kate Millet, has some eye-opening views on her sister and her cause. Here's a taste:
As I scan the wreckage of our beautiful America, knowing that my own sister was in great part responsible, I feel as if my heart has been kicked down the stairs. So, on pondering this question about the good and the bad of militant feminism, it reminds me of the joke in which the reporter asks, “Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, how did you enjoy the play?”

Mueller and Comey

Radio host Mark Levin had a good segment last night on some of Mueller and Comey's previous efforts at collaboration (audio here). Of particular interest is Levin's discussion of the duo's bungling of the investigation of the anthrax killer, which starts around the 8-minute mark.

Adam Schiff gets pantsed

Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff, filled with a ravenous desire for Trump's blood, was easily hoodwinked by two Russian comedians into thinking they had scandalous photos of the president.

The congressman's pencil neck appropriately supports a brain as sharp as an eraser.

James Comey chokes on his nothing burger

James Comey, ex-FBI apparatchik, saw the FISA memo and tried to play it down by tweeting "That's it?" Once again, his idiocy became a meme on Twitter.

Surrender, now, CBS, before you catch a roundhouse kick in the face

In honor of Old Paco, here's Tommy Dorsey's Boogie Woogie - a tune of which he was extremely fond, and that set me off on a life-long love affair with swing music.

The one that got away

Old Paco was a criminal investigator for the ATF from the 1950s into the early 1970s (it was known as the Alcohol and Tobacco Unit of the Treasury Dept. when he began his career), and was a legendary "revenooer", chasing bootleggers throughout North Carolina. On a table of memorabilia at his funeral service, I spotted a thick case file that he had built on his arch nemesis, the notorious moonshine king bearing the improbable name of Percy Flowers - described in this Wikipedia article as "an American businessman, philanthropist, noted fox hunter and North Carolina's number one producer of illegal alcohol in the mid twentieth century." Old Paco and various other agents tried for years to put Flowers away, but he pretty much had Johnston county in his pocket, which included, among other things, practically every jury that ever heard a case against him. My father said that Flowers was one of the smartest men he ever met, a fellow who could have made a fortune in any honest line of work he might have chosen, but he apparently never had more fun than when making money illegally, and definitely there lived within him something of the age-old rural American hostility to a far-away, meddlesome federal government and its hoggish desire for taxes.
