Baltimore Prosecutor: “No Peace No Fleece”

“I hear your calls ‘no justice no peace!’” – State Attorney and Prosecutor M. Mosby

I know that in America the suspect has always been assumed innocent until proven guilty, butt when did we adopt the statute that arresting officers are assumed guilty until proven innocent?

innocentNew principle of justice in America

And what are we to make of the decision by Baltimore’s Prosecutor to charge 6 officers with various forms of murder? Don’t bother trying to noodle it out for yourself, the New York Times has already weighed in with the verdict: “Marilyn Mosby, Prosecutor in Freddie Gray Case, Takes a Stand and Calms a Troubled City.”

So Ms. Mosby heard “the people of Baltimore and the demonstrators across America” and she decided to pander give them peace; at the price of no justice for the cops, butt you’ve gotta start somewhere, right? And who better to bring peace by issuing warrants against police officers than an inexperienced, 35 year old elected prosecutor (4 months on the job) with multiple conflicts of interest and ambitions for higher office – as all prosecutors worth their salt do? That’s right, nobody.

So in this new normal “vigilante justice” system the “seriousness of charges” against the police actions themselves serve as the basis for the criminal charges ultimately filed.

6945DemocratPlaybook101RUSH: The seriousness of the charge opens up the possibility that it might be true and therefore the seriousness of the charge is the story. Whether there’s any evidence or not.

So when the Occupy anarchists joined forces with other outside professional agitators and the disenfranchised “yoots” of Baltimore and threatened to reign down more mayhem on the city, it seemed perfectly reasonable to throw the book at the six officers involved in the arrest and transport of Freddie Gray. Therefore we get charges ranging from involuntary manslaughter to “second-degree depraved heart murder” - which means indifference to human life - for not putting Freddie’s seat belt on. Seriously? In most states that’s a $150 fine but in Baltimore it’s now felony murder.

double-down-50402Do I hear “double down on stupid”

So let me see if I’ve got this straight: 1. You can’t call black thugs thugs. 2. If cops try to stop crime in black neighborhoods “urban communities” they are accused of being racists (e.g. Michael Brown/Ferguson/Officer Wilson); and 3. if cops don’t try to stop crime in black neighborhoods “urban communities” (e.g. Freddie Gray) it’s because they don’t care about black on black crime, which makes them…racists.

Yes, this will prove to be an interesting case - not because there’s a racial component to it, like with the OJ case from the 90’s; this time race is the case. Because you know, “no peace no justice!” Or in the case of the Reverend Sharpton and the rest of the race baiters, “no fleece, no peace.” That’s golden fleece – in case there was any doubt - for those who orchestrate the malaise.

Squire-and-Partners-golden-fleece-hero-IIHIH Race Baiters: maintaining the “no peace no justice” meme since 1970 in exchange for fleece

So here’s the bottom line: unless the Baltimore prosecutor can make the gloves fit to avoid aquits, there will be more riots in Baltimore. So given that, don’t expect inconvenient mitigating facts like this:

Gray’s premature birth, his heroin addicted mother, and his extreme lead poisoning, his slamming himself up against walls — whether because he was in the grip of an uncontrolled fury or because he was hoping for a hospital visit, not a jail visit — resulted in him fracturing his own possibly congenitally-weakened spine. – Bookworm Room

Thug: And Another One Bites the Dust

MAYOR STEPHANIE RAWLINGS-BLAKE: ...The thugs who only want to incite violence...

GOVERNOR LARRY HOGAN: ...Our city of Baltimore to be taken over by thugs...

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: ...And thugs who tore up the place

Butt I just heard that “thug” is the new n-word and we can’t use it any more; what goes on here?

John McWhorter, linguist and self-described “cranky liberal Democrat” will explain everything to NPR host Melissa Block:

john McWhorter

BLOCK: John, I've been looking at the Merriam-Webster definition of thug, and it describes it as a brutal ruffian or assassin. What's the origin of this word?

MCWHORTER: Well, the word originates in India as a word for roughly that.

Group_of_ThugsGroup of Indian Thuggees

And because the British ran India for a good long time, the word jumped the rails from Indian languages to English, and that's the reason that we in America have used the word for a very long time. And until rather recently, it did mean what you might call a ruffian, but of course, things have changed.

BLOCK: Well, how have they changed?

MCWHORTER: Well, the truth is that thug today is a nominally polite way of using the N-word. Many people suspect it, and they are correct. When somebody talks about thugs ruining a place, it is almost impossible today that they are referring to somebody with blonde hair. It is a sly way of saying there go those black people ruining things again. And so anybody who wonders whether thug is becoming the new N-word doesn't need to. It's most certainly is.

And there it is: Merriam-Webster is racist; as are Mayor Rawlings-Bates, Governor Hogan and President Obama. And the rest of us have been banned from calling anyone other than a blue-eyed blonde a thug ever again.

So how is it that a Black Mayor and a Black President can use the new n-word and we can’t? Racism.

The NPR explanation continues…

BLOCK: Although, if you think about it, I mean, in two of the pieces of tape that we played, we heard from an African-American mayor of Baltimore and an African-American president of the United States using that word.

MCWHORTER: Yep, and that is because just like the N-word, we have another one of these strangely bifurcated words. Thug in the black community, for about the past 25 to 30 years, has also meant ruffian, but there is a tinge of affection. A thug in black people's speech is somebody who is a ruffian but in being a ruffian is displaying a healthy sort of countercultural initiative, displaying a kind of resilience in the face of racism etc. Of course nobody puts it that way, but that's the feeling. And so when black people say it, they don't mean what white people mean, and that's why I think Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and Barack Obama saying it means something different from the white housewife wherever who says it.

BLOCK: You're saying that African-American, in this case, politicians, who use the word thug should be given a pass because they understand it in a different way? I mean, the mayor certainly walked back her use of the word. She didn't want to be associated with it. She said, you know, I spoke out of frustration. They're really misguided young people.

MCWHORTER: No because I think that if an African-American woman uses the word thug today, we're not always conscious of all of these overtones in the words that we use. But I think that when she said that, she didn't mean it the same way as her white equivalent would. The word means two things, just like the N-word. And I think all of us are sophisticated enough to wrap our heads around that.

Um, no; I guess I’m not so·phis·ti·cat·ed enough because I’m really having a hard time wrapping my head around it. Maybe because I’m a racist, butt I still have a few questions.

Does that mean I can call Muslims thugs:


Deer hunters thugs:


Neo-Nazis thugs:


Mexican drug cartel members thugs:


Internet big mouths thugs:

gangsta nerds and thugs

Mafioso (i.e. white ethnic mafia types, who I understand black rappers idolized) thugs:


Butt I can’t call black thugs thugs? Or does it mean I can’t call anybody under any circumstances a thug - because of my white privilege?

Tupac-Thug-Life-PhotosThat’s right, white-girl: only black thugs can use that word now, for everybody else it’s the “t-word” from here-on-in.

Today’s Public Service Announcement was brought to you by Tupac Shakur (aka 2Pac) who was tragically gunned down at age 25 in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas which, to the best of my knowledge, involved no police.

Newspeak Guidelines: How to Cover Everything From Baseball to Protests

The ultimate handbook of Newspeak provides helpful guidelines to steer us through these troubling times:

Employing the concept of doublethink, the Party gives ironic names to its branches as a way to euphemize what they actually are:

The Ministry of Truth, which concerned itself with news, entertainment, education, and the fine arts. The Ministry of Peace, which concerned itself with war. The Ministry of Love, which maintained law and order. And the Ministry of Plenty, which was responsible for economic affairs. Their names, in Newspeak: Minitrue, Minipax, Miniluv, and Miniplenty. – George Orwell 1984

The 2015 version:


Secrets of success in Minitrue Media:

1. Don’t check facts.

2. Load the deck.

3. Create your own reality.

Although the United States has worked for years to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons while limiting Tehran’s attempts to be a regional hegemon, the president’s desperation to secure a deal ­- at whatever cost -­ places both of these goals at serious risk. – Senator Marco Rubio

And then unleash the dogs of war:


Don’t worry, Valerie Jarrett is in "regular contact" with the mayor of Baltimore, the White House announced late Tuesday night.

"Jarrett also remained in regular contact with Mayor Rawlings Blake (Baltimore, MD) and Maryland Governor Larry Hogan," an unnamed White House spokesman told the media.

Valarie Jarrett was also in regular contact with the CIA and Pentagon during the Benghazi protests over the YouTube video. And we all know how well that turned out.

Neoprene: It’s the New Lycra

Why didn’t I think of this? Industrial schtrength neoprene - approved by the Professional Association of Diving Instructors – over industrial strength Spanx.

Neoprene (or polychloroprene) is a family of synthetic rubbers that are produced by polymerization of chloroprene. Neoprene exhibits good chemical stability, and maintains flexibility over a wide temperature range. It is used in a wide variety of applications, such as laptop sleeves, orthopedic braces (wrist, knee, etc.), electrical insulation, liquid and sheet applied elastomeric membranes or flashings, and automotive fan belts.

This schtuff can be used for anything! Everything from fashionable scuba diving wet suits (with matching scuba car coat)

neoprene scuba coat

– to Lady M’s fashion forward “sunrise-printed scuba car coat and structured dress made of a light neoprene fabric”  which was a huge hit:

“Obama selected a breathtaking sunrise-printed scuba Monique Lhuillier coat and matching dress that managed to encapsulate both beauty and serenity in one swift motion.” - InStyle 

neoprenesunrise scuba

Because you can’t get distinctive folds like this with regular fabrics.

For this kind of dramatic effect you need a lot of rubber:

…and an injection molding machine. Of course Lady M’s neoprene mask is custom made:

  And while I’ve heard that neoprene can be uncomfortable:

That’s a small price for fashion. So I’m going on record right here, right now and declaring that neoprene is the new lycra.

Now, on to the Japanese State Dinner. I know you’re wondering what delicacies from Lady M’s Garden of Good and Evil could possibly be on the menu this early in the season:

For the occasion Lady M choose a lovely frock with an embroidered feather-motif and a full tulle skirt by Tadashi Shoji, thus continuing our habit of patronizing the visiting dignitaries.

Oh, and in case you were wondering what beverages were served at dinner: sake of course - Dassai’s 23 for a toast – and a Freeman 2013 “Ryo-fu” Chardonnay. And everyone got a complimentary set to-go in a handy neoprene wine tote.

Fifty Years of Progressive Politics and All I Got Was This Stinkin’ Riot


22ap-e1398195286461Choose wisely, weedhopper.

If there had been 24/7 news coverage in the 60’s I wonder where our cities would be today?

detroit burnsDetroit burns 1968

I suppose, it might have been like this:

BW in Baltimore copy

Because there’s nothing like fixating on the problem to avoid formulating an effective solution. To that end, progressives have focused on the racial unrest of the 60’s as their sole source of input to domestic policies for over 50 years. Results have been predictable; well done Progs:

I suggest we not participate in the media’s fixation on problem. And I’ve got just what we need instead, a good squirrel: Wally, to be exact.

And be sure to note Wally’s “fortune” as it might somehow be applicable to our current situation:

The Culture Wars Continue

I was going to discuss “The Clintons” today butt between Doug Ross (Will Hillary Get the Petraeus Treatment?) and Clarice (The Clintons' Little Tin Box) they’ve pretty much covered all the bases we know about so far.  Except for the New York Post’s contention that the Clinton Foundation functions essentially as a slush fund.

150425-clinton-global-graft-initiativeH/T Doug Ross

Charity Navigator, which rates nonprofits, put the foundation on its “watch list,” which warns potential donors about investing in problematic charities. The 23 charities on the list include the Rev. Al Sharpton’s troubled National Action Network, which is cited for failing to pay payroll taxes for several years.

And although the 2016 presidential campaign hasn’t even officially begun we are already starting to show signs of Clinton fatigue. Let’s just say that somebody’s got some ‘splaining to do and leave it at that for now.

lucy hill (2)Who, me?!

And so as I leave the Clintons to take care of themselves, which they have more than proven they can do, let’s move on to another topic: John Nolte’s excellent discourse on liberal hypocrisy: Gay Panic: Jenner, Rubio, Cruz Shock Parochial Mainstream Media. You should read it for yourself, butt here are some of the high lights:

Our bubbled mainstream media got a serious crash-course in reality this week with the revelations that Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio don’t hate gays, and that Bruce Jenner, who is in the process of transitioning into a woman, remains a Christian Republican.

Bruce does seem to be suffering from gender dysphoria, butt apparently the rest of his brain is working correctly.


During a two-hour interview Friday night, Jenner said to a noticeably puzzled Diane Sawyer, “I’ve always been more on the conservative side.” Still in shock, Sawyer then asked if he’s a Republican. Jenner responded in the affirmative, ”Yeah. Is that a bad thing? I believe in the Constitution.” Jenner also said he was a Christian and not a Barack Obama fan.

Mr. Nolte also explained how puzzled the media was by the whole thing:

Earlier this same week, among others, The New York Times was flabbergasted to discover that Republican Senator Ted Cruz would love his daughters just as much if they were gay. Cruz was also the star of a political event this week hosted by two openly gay hoteliers. The Times was so startled by this Cruz felt compelled to issue a statement.

“It speaks volumes that the New York Times considers it newsworthy that a Republican who believes marriage is between a man and a woman would meet with people who hold a different view,” said Cruz.


You keep ‘splaining and I’ll keep making jokes.

Like most everyone else in America, legions of conservatives and Christians live and work, and dare I say, coexist just fine with their openly gay friends, co-workers, and relatives. America has come a long way in a very short time when it comes to recognizing the humanity of homosexuals, and that is truly a wonderful thing. And long overdue.

Where we disagree is on the political issue of same sex marriage, and despite what the media believes, holding the same opinion on gay marriage that Barack Obama did two years ago, and Hillary Clinton did 2 minutes ago, does not make one a Nazi. (snip)

chick lineup bullshitChick-Fil-A in the Nazi Line-up: wing tips up! Don’t shoot!

The mainstream media is positively drunk on its own sanctimonious ideas of diversity, inclusion and tolerance of different cultures and ideas. And yet this same mainstream media regularly displays a stunning ignorance when it comes to understanding a political and religious culture held by something like, oh, 100 million Americans.

This ignorance breeds hate, which in turn breeds a bigotry that includes a wildly unfair stereotyping that regularly finds its way into news coverage. (snip)

hqdefaultMedia’s Pavlovian reaction to the Conservative Rorschach test

Bruce Jenner is about to discover that conservatives and Christians will be much more tolerant towards his transitioning than so-called progressives are of his political beliefs.


Which leaves you to wonder: who are the real defenders of Thomas Jefferson’s classical liberalism: the the progressive authoritarians who want to use the power of government to make you think and act the way they believe is best, or the Tea Party conservatives who want government to butt out?

Chick-fil-A_cow_charityFeel free to give to the charity of your choice, as long as your choice is the government.

So, as the Supreme Court takes up the issue of gay marriage this week I say let the culture wars continue…

FLOTUS Frock Evolution: a Correspondents’ Dinner Retrospective

The Nerd Prom is always highly anticipated around here. Will BO’s joke writers be as good as Jon Stewarts? Will TOTUS scroll them slowly enough for Big Guy to read? Who will Lady M wear and will she make both the “Best” and “Worst” dressed lists? Although that anxiety has eased considerably with the passing of Joni.

So let’s spend a few moments reviewing the transformation of Lady M at the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

2009: before the discovery of industrial schtrenght Spanx:

Immortalized by Cripes Suzette’s famous “hump, slump, bump and plump” shot:

2011: We try sexy, in a silk charmeuse on a wrestler’s toned body and messy hair


2012: We attempt restraint in our multi-colored Joseph frock and lots of skin in the game.


2013: Basic black, plenty of that DOD Spanx and we go sultry and pouty, with bangs – so you can’t see our new boy brows


2014: WTF? Looks like the dresser didn’t have time to finish so we just slapped on a big ring and headed out.


And this year, a brand new MO. New brows, new lips new hair and tons of filler and freezer; this year we’re going for a female Hispanic designation:




Or wait…are we being punked? Again?

1429932408_bruce-jenner-abc-sawyer-interview_1“I’ve got new eyebrows too.”

Let’s ask Johnny Weir, who also attended last nights festival of irrelevants:

johnny weirStill vying for that Olympic Ice Queen medal

Butt let’s face it, the press and the Hollywood celebs - who take up more seats at the dinner every year – come to hear the carefully crafted jokes that Barry’s little people write for him. And they never go home disappointed, as documented by CNN:

Of all recent presidents, Obama has taken humor closer to the hard-to-define threshold of what is appropriate coming from the mouth of a president…

Obama's not just playing for laughs. There's something deeper going on. For a president who rarely loses his temper in public, the dinner offers a safety valve…

Obama's is a brand of humor to match a polarized age where the stand-up gags of late-night hosts on broadcast TV seem tame compared to the satirical swipes of Comedy Central -- and when a veneer of good humored bipartisanship has long since been torn away…

Former President Ronald Reagan once lobbed gentle one-liners at the White House Correspondents' Dinner like he was joshing show-biz pals at a roast or warming up the audience at the "The Tonight Show."…

Three decades later, Obama's humor is more cruel, more personal and inherently more political.

All President’s have made self-deprecating jokes at the Correspondents’ dinner to humanize themselves; butt interestingly, as Tucker Carlson points out, all of BO’s self-deprecating remarks are aimed at somebody else. ‘Cuz that’s what makes malignant narcissists laugh.
