Is That Mud I Smell?

“I just provided my server to the Justice Department…but here’s what I won’t do. I won’t get down in the mud with them.”

Is it possible that the smartest woman in the world was completely baffled by her own email server? Did she just push the “wipe the hard drive clean” button by mistake? Apparently so.


Nevertheless, she stands defiant. Speaking at a rally at the Iowa State Fairgrounds, with the slight whiff of  cow dung drifting through the air, she joked (“I love my new Snapchat account.Those messages just disappear all by themselves.”), wagged her finger at the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy [VRWC]  (“I won’t pretend that this is anything other than what it is, the same old politics that we’ve seen before.”), and accused the Justice Department and the FBI of playing politics (“I just provided my server to the Justice Department…but here’s what I won’t do. I won’t get down in the mud with them.”). All to great fanfare.


And since there is “not a smidgen of scandal” here you can expect Hilz to continue the pursuit of her life-long dream of making the world bend to her will.

mad cow mud

Because she doesn’t have time to get down in the mud with all you little VRWC gnats.

Elusive Alchemy

As the country remains immersed in The Donald, email servers wiped clean, and Iowa corndogs we take a small break to check in on how the Won’s vacation on the Vineyard is going:

Last night we enjoyed dinner at popular downtown restaurant Alchemy* – which may be considered by some to be an ironic statement on the Obama presidency.

[*alchemy - a seemingly magical process of transformation, creation, or combination. It was concerned particularly with attempts to convert base metals into gold.]


It was a quiet dinner with some of the folks (Eric Holder and his wife, National Security Advisor Susan Rice and her husband, and former U.S. trade representative Ron Kirk and his wife) at Alchemy, where they perform magic such as the transformation of the lowly zucchini into exotic flash fried zucchini matchsticks for $18.

Lady M and the Wee Wons enjoyed lunch the day before at the Atlantic Steak and Chop House:


Where you can enjoy a small Seafood Bouquet for $58 or a large (better value) for just $96.


And a bone-in ribeye for just $51.


While daddy played a little golf. Here he is playing a round under the admiring gaze of “Uncle” Cy Walker -   Valerie Jarrett’s kissin’ cousin.


And here he is with NBA basketball player Ray Allen, who is seemingly expressing the sentiment of millions of Americans. Either that or he’s stifling a sneeze.

ObamaYo, man, you stink!”

Let the record reflect that the alchemists’ dream has yet to be realized: to date nobody has been able to transform base metal into gold. And as far as I know, you can’t break gold down either. So we’ve chemistry going for us.

They Shoot Horses Don’t They?


Gloria is a young woman of the Depression. She has aged beyond her years and feels her life is hopeless, having been cheated and betrayed many times in her past. While recovering from a suicide attempt, she gets the idea from a movie magazine to head for Hollywood to make it as an actress. Robert is a desperate Hollywood citizen trying to become a director, never doubting that he'll make it. Robert and Gloria meet and decide to enter a dance marathon, one of the crazes of the thirties. The grueling dancing takes its toll on Gloria's already weakened spirit, and she tells Robert that she'd be better off dead, that her life is hopeless - all the while acting cruelly and bitterly, alienating those around her, trying to convince him to shoot her and put her out of her misery. After all, they shoot horses, don't they? –IMDb


Jean Carré said the Chinese and the Russians are reading his emails:

Secretary of State John Kerry says he writes emails "with the awareness" that Russian and Chinese hackers are likely reading them, he revealed in an interview with CBS News on Tuesday.

"It's very possible ... and I certainly write things with that awareness," Kerry added. [ed. remember the good old days when WE were the ones doing the spying?]

Chinese cyberspies have reportedly been reading the private emails of Obama-administration officials and "top national security and trade officials" since 2010.

No wonder; his predecessor made it rather easy for foreign hackers to get at them:

The report comes amid the ongoing issue of Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server for work-related correspondences while she served as Secretary of State from 2009 to 2013.

It’s been, to quote the MSM, “a tough summer for former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton.” Indeed, first the leak that Hilz’ emails contained “top secret” documents and now, that somebody in Hilz’ camp may have used the cyber version of White Out (is that a micro-aggression?) on those emails. Are there no depths that the  Republican War On Women will not plunge in order to make this fine woman look bad?

hillaryLittle help needed in that regard (h/t UpNorthLurkin)

Still, facts is facts:

Improper handling of such info violates federal law. A violation occurs when anyone entrusted with the information, “through gross negligence permits the same to be removed from its proper place of custody or delivered to anyone in violation of his trust, or to be lost, stolen, abstracted or destroyed.”

The feds have prosecuted two CIA chiefs for putting classified info on their home computers. Why not a secretary of state?NY Post

Butt I warn you, the American election cycle is a marathon, not a sprint:


There may still be a way to drag that dead horse across the finish line.

Stay on your feet, America; we can still win this one.

Hillary’s Email Server Chronology: “Don’t Shoot! I’m Just the Piano Player.”


Clinton has resisted relinquishing control of the server. In March, she said the server contained “personal communications from my husband and me.”

“I believe I have met all of my responsibilities, and the server will remain private,” she said then, in response to a question from a reporter about whether she would allow an independent party to examine the device. – WaPo

“So look, I had no idea my email contained any classified information.”


“I personally reviewed all of them myself and determined which ones should be turned over to the State Department. Again I repeat, NO CLASSIFIED INFORMATION! Got it?”


“So I will fight anyone who tries to get their hands on my personal server.”


“How on earth was I supposed to know whether a document would be stamped ‘Top Secret’ at some later date?”

hillary who me what do I know

(NOTE: Before getting National Security Clearance, a de-briefing makes it clear that YOU are responsible for knowing what is classified and if you don’t know for sure you are to assume it IS classified.)


“So imagine my surprise when the FBI found supposedly ‘Top, Top Secret’ documents among my emails!”

hillary clinton

“No problems; I unplugged my computer.”


“Okay, okay: I’ll turn  my server over. See? Hands up, don’t shoot!”


Hey, I’m just a girl, you can’t expect me to know how all this technological equipment works. Republican War on Women!”


“So let’s not try to make a thing out of this, alright? It’s just a vast right wing conspiracy I tell you!”

“Besides: What difference at this point does it make?”

How Far We’ve Come: “If It Bleeds…”

It’s been 5 days and peoples’ heads are still exploding over what The Donald said to Megyn Kelly at last week’s debate. I don’t know about you, butt I certainly never envisioned the day that America’s talking heads would be leading their prime time news coverage with a story about menstruation.  Who imagined the news room “if it bleeds it leads” mindset could be further coarsened?

The world has been transformed rather quickly in the Age of Obama.

paylessLooting of a Payless (way less) store in Ferguson MO. Shelves were cleared of slippers and marching boots, butt no work boots were reported missing.

Butt ginned up or not, is this whole Donald business not just a typical move in the Republican War on Women?


I just don’t see how this ends well.

“Even when folks are hitting you over the head, you can’t stop marching. Even when they’re turning the hoses on you, you can’t stop . . . We’re going to march on.”Barack Obama, September, 2011

Thugs To My Left, Terrorists To My Right: A Victim No More

I see that Ferguson marked the anniversary of  the “murder” of the Gentle Giant with another “protest” of sorts.

One speaker, Yonasda Lonewolf, declared: “Mike Brown was murdered here. This was the epicenter of the movement of ‘black lives matter.’ We still cannot get justice.” She added, “It’s time for us to not seek justice but to demand justice.” 

So it appears that Big Guy’s job is indeed done here: he has fundamentally transformed America back to 1967.

67 riotsDetroit Riots, 1967

Since our country continues is besieged by both domestic and international thugs and terrorists it seems wise to acknowledge that we live in dangerous times and plan accordingly. To that end, I turn today’s post over to  MOTUS’ Chief Security Officer, Little Mo, to discuss situational awareness and self defense techniques. Take it away, Little Mo.

Mo Range 1Thanks MOTUS

I am certain that everyone reading this is aware that on July 20, 2012, James Holmes violated Cinemark Theater’s “No Gun Fish-In-A-Barrel” policy (a topic for another day) and opened fire in the crowded Aurora movie theater, killing 12 and wounding 70. I am also certain that everyone reading this article would agree that no one in that theater imagined that something like that could ever happen to them. Bad things happen to good people in “safe” places every day.

This post is a reminder to stay alert to the potential danger around you, especially in places where you feel safe. We don’t want you to be paranoid, we want you to be prepared.

Let’s get started.

The first tool of safety and self defense is situational awareness:

Situational awareness is simply knowing what’s going on around you. It sounds easy in principle, but in reality requires much practice. And while it is taught to soldiers, law enforcement officers, and yes, government-trained assassins, it’s an important skill for civilians to learn as well. In a dangerous situation, being aware of a threat even seconds before everyone else can keep you and your loved ones safe. (Art of

Your situational awareness kicks in automatically if you walk down a dark alley, but shuts off when you are in a “safe” familiar place like the grocery store parking lot at noon and you are talking to the kids or texting on your cell phone. This video sent to MOTUS by Blonde Gator effectively demonstrates how to apply situational awareness to the everyday occurrence of returning to your car in a parking lot. The lesson begins at about the 2:30 mark:

Simple, easy techniques which everyone can use to improve your situational awareness and safety with “alertness, time and distance.” If you don’t have one, a good self defense keychain is the Safety Cat,

introduced to the MOTUS family by NoellesBootcutKittenpants. NOTE: The current Safety Cat offer on Amazon is $5.00/Safety Cat with flat rate shipping of $3.99 no matter how many Safety Cats are ordered. MOTUS bought them for all her friends and family. NOTE 2: Don’t take it with you to the airport.

This next video is an actual car jacking captured by a surveillance camera at a Detroit gas/convenience store.

The victim of this violent attack did everything right and lost nothing that can’t be replaced. Even if you are armed and well trained (topics for future posts), your best defense option is often retreat to safety.

Here’s a link where you can sign up for US Concealed Carry Association Free Resources including a downloadable preview issue of its Concealed Carry Magazine, its weekly Concealed Carry Report and a 21 page Concealed Carry Guide . If you don’t want to sign up with your email address, you can download the preview copy of Concealed Carry Magazine here and the Concealed Carry Guide in pdf format here.

Pre-Season Tryouts For the Next Kardashian Presidency

With no official appearances scheduled, Obama is expected to fill his days with leisurely rounds of golf, beach outings, bike rides, and hikes with his wife and daughters, and dinner with their friends at some of the island’s top restaurants. – Boston Globe

bo golf formWhile playing golf with Larry David yesterday, The leader of the free world was unable to curb his enthusiasm.

So with the free world in good hands (if anything comes up, like WWIII, Val Jar and Susan Rice are on hand to take charge) let’s turn our attention to the loyal opposition. Specifically, the GOP Pre-Season Tryouts.

As everyone who ever played football knows, this is the time of year coaches schedule two-a-day practices and start pre-season tryouts. Some who show up for tryouts perform well and make the varsity team; others, who don’t have what it takes, are demoted to the JV team or cut straight away. I think that’s a fine tradition that we should apply to the GOP Teams; they could stand a little culling. So let’s give it a go:


As always, voting is conducted according to Chicago Rules: vote as often as you wish, for as many candidates as you wish. No ID is required. U.S.citizenship is preferred, butt certainly not required. Voting will remain open until 11:59 EDT, August 9. 2015.

And when you’re done, put your tight big boy pants on and get out there to work on your handicap. Because we still have to beat our cross-town rival. And I hear they’re already planning their homecoming party.


Dear God, please don’t make us endure a second Kardashian presidency. Amen.
