Hard Truths About the Ashley Madison Hack From an Escort’s Perspective

Ashley Madison

When the personal data of 32 million people, including names, addresses, credit card numbers is hacked and dumped online, that’s already a staggering breach  of privacy, but when it comes from a site created for the purposes of promoting sexual infidelity,  it can far more serious and lasting impact; from divorce to suicide.

Here’s a summary of what the hacking of the hook-up site by a group calling itself Impact Team  is about and why Ashley Madison has put a $500,000 “bounty” on them.

While nobody is going to feel sorry for Ashley Madison members cheating on their spouses, yet again we’re reminded anyone of us at anytime is subject to having our entire online life exposed for the rest of the world to see? It’s not that anyone should feel sorry for them, but we should be concerned when we receive yet another reminder there is no privacy anywhere and least of all on the Internet.

Privacy, like free speech, isn’t reserved for only for ourselves and the people we like.

Eternal, everlasting love meshed with deeply satisfying, passionate, curl-your-toes sex is what one always aspires to in a relationship or a marriage. When there’s one without the other,  the possibility exists  one partner will search elsewhere for what they want and are missing.   When there’s neither it becomes a near-certainty. Which is why philandering sites like Ashley Madison thrive.

But while I don’t feel sorry  for the guys (and some gals) who got caught up in the hacking of Ashley Madison,  I don’t believe anyone should lose their lives due to being outed and shamed into taking their own lives and in the aftermath that’s exactly what has happened.

I asked two friends of mine whom are professional sexworkers as paid escorts what they thought of the data breach and the men who were caught up in it.


I happened to be in my email when this came in. I removed all my stuff (pics , phone) from the web as much as I possibly could after I realized what a problem it could be. I don’t even post comments except from my professional email address. I don’t have a FB page, although once I signed up and cancelled and have been tracked by them ever since.


A Scientific American article from a few months ago wrote that no one now or in the near future can have any realistic expectation of any kind of privacy, and then outlined the reasons why. I had it in paper so don’t have a link for you.

There are almost no laws regulating the net, so it’s gone from a favorite toy to a weapon that can ruin your life. Facebook posts can get you fired from a job if people decide they don’t appreciate your values. Look what happened to Cecil the Lion Killer.

In the old days we put everything out there, then all of a sudden I thought whoaaaa, this never goes away, so I started erasing stuff. There are companies paid to clean your internet image and create a healthier online profile for people who can afford it.

The ridiculous part of Ashley Madison is that guys being guys are just ‘wishing’ in their special kind of deluded way that something fun and spectacular is going to happen – for free.

Ashley Madison meme
Most of those sites don’t work that well, they’re mostly male and female profiles can be fake to drive traffic. Although, one of my clients hooked up with a woman off a site like that and told me he was getting it for free. He was old and fat and barely functional, I kept wondering why a straight girl would want to have a non paid affair with this married man, in that kind of shape?

Then it occurred to me- I think it’s easier to leave a single mom a few 20’s on the nite table and tell her to buy something nice, and still think she’s still banging you cause she likes you. A few might actually like sex with strangers, who knows.

The men aren’t very smart either. It’s so easy to set up a fake email address for your clandestine activities. There are email address companies that claim they won’t buckle to the NSA or HS, no guarantees. A lot of those men used their publicly known email addresses.

Anyway, everyone that doesn’t want to get caught is going to have to be a lot more careful. I’d been telling stupid hookers not to put all their shit out there in case they want to have a life someday, but they’re dumb as rocks most times.

The invasion of privacy is wrong. It’s like a cat burglar. Creepy wrong.

I think I’m on the list. I heard about the site years ago and registered. Not sure if I created much of a profile. I just wanted to see what it was about.

The government emails being on the list, well….why do government servers not block sites that aren’t necessary, why do they allow a government worker to use their government email addresses out side the walls of internal servers. When I worked for the government, I could turn on my computer without a password. I was on night shift, went into the boss’s office and opened his secretary’s computer. Didn’t need a password. I was searching for interview questions. I found them. The person I wanted to get the questions to got the job. Goal accomplished.

My point? I could have made an Ashley Madison account from the boss’ secretaries computer, and she’d be on that list.

I remember once that Vin Diesel made a movie. XXX was the title. My kids looked it up on the computer because they wanted to go to the show and needed to see time it was playing.

Their dad saw a search for XXX and he assumed it was pointed and he punished them.

What about the poor women out there who are really named Ashley Madison???

The news broadcasting stations, reporters, etc…are nothing more than glorified National Enquirer rags. A list??? So fuckin what? I could create a Jeffrey Winbush account on Ashley Madison right now. Make an email address of jeffwinbushwantstogetlaid@gmail.com and you’d be on the next list.

It’s all a crock of shit.


I’ve looked at all kinds of sketchy websites. The reasons vary from out of morbid curiosity to intriguing interest of how easy it is to access that shit. Because my IP address hit those sites doesn’t make me a child molester.

A.M. hack doesn’t PROVE a fucking thing. But people judge w/o knowing the real truth ALL the time.

The dweebs that committed suicide, well….they were weak and didn’t have a good poker face. Life would have thrown them a curve ball they couldn’t handle sooner or later.

The A.M. hack is basically nasty gossip on a large-scale. People who talk about it, feed it. We are feeding it right now.

What’s so incredulous about this hack is that A.M. was so God damn vanilla that it’s a joke. If people were comfortable enough with sexual fantasy, if government hadn’t been allowed to make adultery, ass fucking, horse fucking, etc.. a crime, no one would give a shit.

Who cares how one fucks or who one fucks as long as they are legally consenting?

One day there will be a way to read our minds. We’ll all be in jail or jumping off cliffs then.

Let’s take that A.M. list and alter it before we publish it? You think that could’ve been done to what was initially published? Could we take that list, modify it and say it was hacked from an escort site? Sure we could.

People are uptight and dumb. I’m glad I don’t live my life in a closet. If I was asked about being on A.M. I could own it. Everyone should. Then there would be no A.M. news anymore.

And that’s all I got to say ’bout dat.


Hillary Under No Pressure

What did we learn from the 11-hour “We Hate Hillary” marathon on Capitol Hill before the House Select Committee on Benghazi?

  • Hillary Clinton has a friend named Sidney Blumenthal.
  • Sidney Blumenthal sent Hillary Clinton a bunch of emails.
  • The Republicans have burned through  nearly $5 million bucks, dragged on for 17 months (longer than the Watergate hearings) and all they have to show for it is an empty bag of NOTHING.
  • Trey Gowdy sure sweats a lot.

Now that the Inquisition is finally over, it doesn’t make any difference if you’re a Hillary fan or consider her pond scum. After 11 hours of a prosecution posing as a hearing, what did any of us learn? How much the Republicans believe Sidney Blumenthal is a force of evil?

Maybe the thought of Trey Gowdy and the Republicans members of the committee was if they put Clinton through a grueling endurance contest, (I’m a politics junkie and I had to bail out)  goad her,  bait her, insult her,  throw her in a meat grinder, surely she would screw up,  go off, blow a fuse, and give them something which could be endlessly looped in attack ads, GOP talking points and  all over right-wing media

They didn’t they got it. They got an empty bad of air.  They certainly didn’t get a “What difference does it make?” moment.   Hillary wouldn’t give the Gowdy Gang what they so desperately wanted.    They wanted a meltdown.    They got a composed, unfazed former Secretary of State who sat there for 11 hours and they never laid a glove on her.

The Republicans did everything they could to bait Clinton into losing her cool short of walking up and slapping her in the face.   She just smiled, shrugged and looked as though she felt a pang of sorrow for all this effort expended for so little return.

Brush them haters off.

The Republicans not only failed to make Hillary Clinton crack under constant and relentless pressure, they made her look positively Presidential.

“The reality is that we’ve had eight investigations, we’ve gone through this endlessly,” Rep. Adam Schiff, (D-Calif.,) said. “The reality is that after 17 months, we have nothing new to tell the families. We have nothing new to tell the American people.”

“It is time, and it is time now,” Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md)  who had slammed Gowdy to his face, “for the Republicans to end this taxpayer-funded fishing expedition.”

Even chief witch hunter Trey Gowdy’s glumly  admitted to the press, “I don’t know that she testified much differently today than when she previously testified.”  Does that mean Hillary is an excellent liar or proves if you’re telling the truth you don’t have to change your story?

Now everyone can see why Gowdy was telling Republicans to “shut up” about the Benghazi committee.    It was never about what happened to the compound in Libya or how four Americans including Ambassador Chris Stevens had died.   It was always and only about one thing:  Get Hillary.    They could have gone 22 hours and they still would have failed.

The hotter it got the cooler Clinton stayed. Try to imagine Donald Trump or Ben Carson sitting there placidly for 11 hours while seven hostile Democrats try to rip out their spleen. It can’t be done. Carson and Trump would have turned into warm puddles of goo.

Hillary was the adult in a room full of rowdy Republican children.    Trey Gowdy tried to make her look like a liar.   Instead, he may have made her the next president.

"What? Me Worry?"
“What? Me Worry?”

The Bernie & Hillary Show

It’s all smiles and handshakes now, but wait until the long knives come out…

Getting sick and missing work  forced me to miss updating my blog, but even though I’m late posting this,  nothing has changed to invalidate it, so here what I have to say about the first debate for the Democratic presidential candidates.   Doesn’t it make  a difference when there’s a debate without Donald Trump’s fat head filling up the camera?   Lower ratings. More substance. That’s a trade-off worth making.

Bernie Sanders did  very well and did nothing to harm his status as the Ultimate Boogeyman of the Billionaires. Hillary Clinton was polished, seasoned and seemed to be enjoying herself. Martin O’Malley will make someone a very nice Cabinet secretary as long as its nothing too important. Lincoln Chafee should enjoy those two hours because those are the last ones he’s gonna get on a debate stage. Jim Webb would be a very formidable candidate if he were only running as the Republican he once was and still seems to be.

It’s popular to declare a winner of these  things and make everybody else a loser, but this was really only about two of the candidates.   I tuned in for The Bernie & Hillary Show and their not-so special guest stars and it opened to rave reviews for not being anything like the bloody car crash the two Republican debates were.

Who won?  I see it this way:  Politics is the art of the possible and Bernie is full of possibilities. Politics is also the art of the doable, and since no Democrat is liable to make any headway with the Republican majorities in the House and the Senate (more likely of the two to change control), Hillary is better suited to position herself as the one who can get something done.

Bernie appeals to my liberalism.   Hillary appeals to my pragmatism.   I want to follow my heart, but I listen to my brain.

You know what the biggest difference is between watching the Democrats debate after the first two Republican rumbles? You don’t feel your intelligence has been insulted and you’re a bit more hopeful for America than you are after someone has tried to scare you into believing Mexicans are gonna take your job, ISIS is going to kill you in your sleep and bullshit you into believing everything will be fine if we would only give billionaires another tax break.

We’ve already had the Republicans present themselves as if every American is as dumb as they are, so maybe the Democrats taking a shot on Americans actually being smart might work.

For anyone feeling frosty the media proclaimed Clinton the “winner” why do you need the media to confirm for you what you already believe? If Bernie is your guy then don’t wait for him to be anointed by the mainstream media because it’s probably not going to happen.

Sanders did a nice job at the first debate, but some pundits say for him to beat Hillary Clinton he’s gonna have to stop being so nice. The campaigns are just getting revved up and when things stop being so congenial between Clinton and Sanders, I have no doubt when push comes to shove, Hillary will chop Bernie’s head right off his shoulders and smile when it hits the floor. Not so sure the same can be expected from Sanders.

The punditorcracy has already declared Bernie Sanders will never be elected president, but these are the same pundits who said Hillary had this in the bag from the jump, so what do they know?

The problem for Sanders supporters isn’t going to be convincing the media he can actually win. The problem is convincing the voters.

If nothing else, the Democrats have to feel a bit better now to have finally rolled their 2016 models out on the showroom floor.

No, we are NOT Fleetwood Mac!

Carly Fiorina’s So Vain She Probably Thinks This Election Is About Her.

The Botox Barbie wants to be elected.

It’s a little late, but not too late to talk about Carly Fiorina, the clear winner of the second Republican presidential debate due in no small part to a big assist from CNN.

Still, she was clearly better than a woozy Jeb Bush and a bored Donald Trump.   She should start measuring drapes in the Oval Office, right? Let’s pump the brakes. Fiorina did well in the last debate and but she did so because CNN changed their own rules to include her. She did well because Donald Trump screwed when he hit Fiorina’s on her looks thus making her the latest target of his uncontrollable sexism.  She did well because Gentle Ben Carson sleepwalked through the debate and his flaccid performance dropped him from second place to third though he has since recovered in the ever-changing polls.

Fiorina is a conservative Republican woman who does not differ in any substantive way from the conservative Republican men she’s running against.  She has claimed the status as the Anti-Hillary non-politician, but Fiorina is only an outsider because she failed miserably when she ran for the U.S. Senate against Democratic incumbent Barbara Boxer.

Fiorina’s rise is like that of Carson, Trump and Bernie Sanders. The public is looking around for something newer and shinier than the Establishment options of choosing from Column A of Jeb Bush and choosing from Column B of Hillary Clinton. Or have we forgotten four years ago when Herman Cain was a thing? Then as now, pretty much anyone who hasn’t been a politician but wants to be the top politician in America can be a top contender in the G.O.P. presidential race.

Fiorina’s dismal record as a business “leader” obscures her wearisome anti-woman agenda on reproductive rights, the untruthful attack on Planned Parenthood, opposition to wage equity, and raising the minimum wage is indicative of yet another rich and selfish plutocrat attempting to feed her enormous ego.

Most presidents don’t layoff 30,000 workers, drops the stock price in the shitter, gets fired from their job and are such a hot property nobody even wants you to run their company, then falls upward cashing out with over $40 million to go on and fail miserably in their earlier bid for elected office.

Then of course, there’s the notorious Planned Parenthood sting video which scandalized Fiorina so, but apparently no one else has seen  except Fiorina.  The resulting disingenuous waving away of Fiorina’s purposeful and repeated lying by the Carly Cheerleaders on the right doesn’t square with their sanctimonious denunciation of Planned Parenthood.

Fiorina has been caught as a liar-liar-pants on fire on the Left by The Nation, on the Right by Fox News and everywhere else in between. This freaking video she is speaking of does not fucking exist except in the mendacious mind of Carly Fiorina. Apparently, the Anti-Hillary’s lying-ass ways don’t deviate all that much from Hillary Clinton’s, but to the Carly Cheerleaders mendacity only matters when it’s by the other team.

Fiorina lied and caught telling a lie, she continues to lie even more. That’s a tap dance around the truth Richard Nixon would be proud of. It says a lot about the character of a presidential candidate when they can go on live television and tell a huge, stinking and proven lie her supporters defend weakly as simply not being “technically accurate to the highest degree,” as one Carly Cheerleader told me.

That’s a tap dance around the truth Bill Clinton would be proud of.

Fiorina’s frozen face turned to the camera, stared the American people in the  eye and lied to their face when she said “Watch a fully formed fetus on the table, its heart beating, its legs kicking while someone says, ‘We have to keep it alive to harvest its brain.’ ”

Fiorina deliberately lied and it has been repeatedly proven by various sources to be a lie.

Liar, liar, Carly’s on fire!

Fiorina can bash the media, blame the Left and pro-choicers, play the victim and say black is white and up is down. Telling a lie and then repeating it once it’s been proven to be a lie will never make it the truth.

If Fiorina’s brief bounce to second place in the Republican presidential polls was based on the one-two punch of jabbing Donald Trump and punching out Planned Parenthood, why isn’t she sharing these videos to vault into first place?

Fiorina is either badly mistaken in what she thought she saw in the Planned Parenthood sting videos or she’s deliberately lying about it. I opt for the second explanation.

Mostly though, I’ve had it up to here with vain egotists like Fiorina and Trump whose spectacular successes are matched and often exceeded by their equally spectacular failures and arrogantly believing this makes them presidential timber.

A decade ago the word was already out on what a dud Fiorina was. She solidified her status as one of the worst CEO’s in America long before her delusional fantasy she could fail up to become America’s next president.

Firing 30,000 people is not a sign of success. Making an unwise acquisition over the objections of the board which ends up decreasing the value of the company’s stock is not a sign of success. Being fired by that same board and never hired again as a CEO is not a sign of success.

Yet Fiorina has nimbly turned what should disqualify her from ever holding elected office into the raison d’être of her candidacy. Her ability to make lemonade without lemons is admirable, but after the way she flamed out before she cashed out in the business sector it’s clear Fiorina has no business in the public sector.

She failed as a CEO, failed as a candidate for the Senate and she will fail again.

I’d also suggest Fiorina back up off the Botox before her face permanently freezes in place.

Donald dealt it and Carly smelt it.

The Uselessness of Pet Negroes


“Yes, I DO own a Pet Negro and his name is Bennie!”

Now it says here, “And every white man shall be allowed to pet himself a Negro.Yea,he shall take
a black man unto’himself to pet and to cherish, and this same Negro shall be perfect in his sight. Nor shall hatred among the races of men, nor conditions of strife in the walled cities, cause his pride and pleasure in his own Negro to wane.”
~ Zora Neale Hurston

Regarding  the addled  Ben Carson who says any American-born Muslim who loves his country cannot dream of being its president and to the childish C.J. Pearson, this is what they are:  Carson is old enough to know better and Pearson is too young to know better.   They are conservative darlings.  They  are pets.   They are loyal lapdogs to their conservative masters .  They  are useless to the uplift and progress of the Black race.

Pearson is too young and dumb to President of the United States and Carson is old enough but too dumb to be the President of the United States.  He demonstrated his imbecility when Chuck Todd asked this question on Meet the Press.

“So do you believe that Islam is consistent with the constitution?”

“No,” he said, “I don’t, I do not.”

Carson isn’t only running for the presidency.  He has  a new book, A More Perfect Union:  What We the People Can Do to Reclaim Our Constitutional Liberties co-written with his wife, Candy.  The mad doctor explained in a letter on the book’s website why he wrote the book.

Many people have wondered why I’ve been speaking out on controversial issues for the last few years. They say I’ve never held political office. I’m not a constitutional scholar. I’m not even a lawyer. All I can say to that is “Guilty as charged.”

I believe that making a difference starts with understanding our amazing founding document, the U.S. Constitution. And as someone who has performed brain surgery thousands of times, I can assure you that the Constitution isn’t brain surgery.

The founders wrote it for ordinary men and women, in clear, precise, simple language. They intentionally made it short enough to read in a single sitting and to carry in your pocket.

Representative Keith Ellison’s religion disqualifies him to be president in Ben Carson’s America.


I wrote this book to encourage every citizen to read and think about the Constitution, and to help defend it from those who misinterpret and undermine it. In our age of political correctness it’s especially important to defend the Bill of Rights, which guarantees our freedom to speak, bear arms, practice our religion, and much more.

Carson has established himself as the candidate running against political correctness wherever he finds it,  but he’s the one in error if he thinks there is a hidden clause in the Bill of Rights which does not guarantee Muslims the same rights he has.
Dr. Carson,  here is what Article VI of the US constitution states: “No religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.”Dr. Carson here is how The First Amendment to the Constitution begins: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof …”


What about this do you not understand?  If you don’t understand the Constitution, maybe you should put your Bible away long enough to read it before you presumptuously attempt to run for the job defending the Constitution of the United States.   More importantly, your new book is about defending the Constitution.  How can that be when you clearly do not understand the Constitution?

U.S. Representatives Keith Ellison and André Carson are among the Muslims who Ben Carson say their religious faith disqualifies them from the presidency.   Carson’s bigoted Islamphobia disqualifies him from the presidency.

Here are a few words about C.J. Pearson, the 13-year old,  conservative activist and Ted Cruz supporter who spends a lot of time making videos denouncing President Obama and ripping into Muslims  including  Ahmed Mohamed. Very few words because it’s  wasted time to worry  too much time over what a child thinks about politics and it  doesn’t hold the fascination for me it does for Pearson’s fans.

Boy, go outside and play!

“Mr. President, what are your priorities here?”  Pearson says in his latest You Tube rant after the president’s  invitation to  Mohamed to visit the  White House, “Because in all honesty, I think you’re being ignorant, I think you’re incompetent, and I think you don’t understand reality.”

There used to be a time when children being rude to adults would earn them a sharp rebuke from adults.   It’s a different world now and conservatives who despise Obama applaud little boys with bad manners and no respect.   I don’t have that problem.  What’s ignorant is enabling this smart ass.  The one who’s incompetent is anyone who takes this kid seriously.   The one who doesn’t understand reality is this little smart ass.

 Pearson  is useful to  White conservatives who love their pet Negroes.  Anyone with a laptop equipped with a camera can make and upload a video to You Tube.  Does that make them a political scholar?  Pearson isn’t even be eligible to  vote for another five years.  This is not cute and it’s not wisdom.

Is there any reason anyone should take seriously  what a 13-year-old who still has pimples has to say about politics?   What typically comes out of the mouths of babes is pabulum and puke, not wisdom.  Come back when your balls drop, BOY.

 Carson is an egotist who doesn’t know what  he’s talking about and  Pearson is a mouthy little snot who doesn’t know what he’s talking about and both are really good at it.   As good and faithful Pet Negroes, they should simply wag their tails and allow their master to put their leash on so they can go for a nice walk and find a tree to spray.


Candy & Ben: life partners and partners in ignorance.

Adios, Mofo!

Rick Perry don’t give a truck.

What happens when a man finally figures out  he’s got nothing to lose by speaking his mind.    If you’re Rick Perry  you reach into your pants first to see if you’ve still got a pair.    Then you quit.   But not before you give that damn yankee Donald Trump a Texas-sized piece of your mind!

Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry suddenly announced he was suspending his presidential campaign Friday.

As he did so, he made it abundantly clear that he’s still not a fan of real-estate mogul Donald Trump, the Republican front-runner in the race with whom he has often feuded.

Speaking at an event in St. Louis, Missouri, Perry repeatedly jabbed at Trump’s campaign-trail controversies without using his name.

“Demeaning people of Hispanic heritage is not just ignorant, it betrays the example of Christ,” Perry said, according to his prepared remarks. “We can enforce our laws and our borders, and we can love all who live within our borders, without betraying our values.”

This was a reference to Trump’s heated rhetoric against illegal immigration, which spurred a nationwide controversy when the developer launched his campaign in June. Perry previously likened Trump’s immigration activism to the US’s 19th-century “Know Nothing” movement, which shunned Catholic immigrants from Ireland and Germany.

“It is time to elevate our debate from divisive name-calling, from soundbites without solutions, and start discussing how we will make the country better for all if a conservative is elected president,” Perry said Friday.

Perry also bashed “celebrity” presidential candidates during his exit speech.

“For me, the message has always been greater than the man,” he said in his prepared remarks. “The conservative movement has always been about principles, not personalities. Our nominee should embody those principles. He — or she — must make the case for the cause of conservatism more than the cause of their own celebrity.”

Absolutely right, Rick.  You won’t be the one making the case though.

For the moment, Perry jumping from the klown kar has zero impact on the race though his super PAC does have $17 million socked away,  so  Slick Rick could still sit back, chill, and see who the Last Man Standing (sorry, Carly!) and see where he wants to start scratching checks for.   Or against if it comes to that.

Unless your name is John Kasich, it hasn’t been a real great time for current or former Republican governors.   Jeb “the Smart One” Bush has been pushed back into the pack by Captain Combover, Gentle Ben Carson, and Carly “I Hate Hillary” Fiorina.   That leaves Mike “I Used To Be Fat” Huckabee,  who tries to stand out in a field of morons by being the most moronic.

How stupid is this asshole?  Huck the Shuck is so stupid he believes the U.S. Supreme Court’s infamous Dred Scott decision of 1857 which denied Blacks the rights to U.S. citizenship still remains the law of the land.  Which it would still be–had not the 14th Amendment been passed in 1868.

Would someone please adjust Moronic Mike’s sun dial 147 years forward?   Meanwhile Little Scotty Walker hasn’t impressed anyone in Iowa as he’s gone from leading the field in July at 18% to just another bottom feeder now at three percent.  Which still allows him to tell Chris (the 1 Percenter) Christie to “eat it, chubs!”   But cheer up, Chris!   Your fave team, the Dallas Cowpies are on Sunday Night Football and looking forward to again showing exactly how their limp dick cornerbacks made Odell Beckham, Jr. a Madden cover boy.

Which leaves one more Republican governor (no, not you George Pataki and Jim Gilmore.  Nobody knows you even exist), but I’m blanking on the name.  Robert sombody or Bob someone or Robbie someone…no, that’s not it….Piyush!  Piyush “What About Bobby?” Jindal!   Shit, I forgot all about that simp!  So has everybody else.

Piyush (2 percent with a bullet!) has been HAM on Captain Combover.  Just look at some of these bitch-slaps he’s thrown at the Big Don.

“It’s not ‘Piyush!’ It’s BOBBY, dammit!”
  • The Donald Trump Act is great, and the idea of Donald Trump is great — BUT the reality of Donald Trump is absurd, he’s a non-serious carnival act.
  • Donald Trump is shallow. Has no understanding of policy. He’s full of bluster but has no substance. He lacks the intellectual curiosity to even learn.
  • It’s silly to argue policy with this guy, he’s doesn’t know anything about it, he has no idea what he is talking about, he makes it all up on the fly. According to him his health care plan will be “fabulous” and his tax plan will be “really, really terrific.” He’s shallow, no substance.
  • Donald Trump is for Donald Trump. He believes in nothing other than himself.   He’s not a liberal, he’s not a moderate, and he’s not a conservative. He’s not a Republican, Democrat, or Independent. He’s not for anything or against anything. Issues and policies and ideals are not important to him. He’s for Donald.
  • Donald Trump is a narcissist and an egomaniac. That may sound like a serious charge to make, but it is also something that everyone knows to be true, and he knows it too, and he celebrates it. He told us the other day that he’s likes Kanye West, why? “Because Kanye loves Trump.” He may be an entertaining narcissist, but he is one nonetheless.
  • Like all narcissists, Donald Trump is insecure and weak, and afraid of being exposed. And that’s why he is constantly telling us how big and how rich and how great he is, and how insignificant everyone else is. We’ve all met people like Trump, and we know that only a very weak and small person needs to constantly tell us how strong and powerful he is. Donald Trump believes that he is the answer to every question.
  • Donald Trump is not a serious person. It’s all a solo act, it’s all just a show, and the joke is on us. He’s laughing all the way to the bank, or to the polling location. P.T. Barnum was never more right.
  • You may have recently seen that after Trump said the Bible is his favorite book, he couldn’t name a single Bible verse or passage that meant something to him.   And we all know why, because it’s all just a show, and he hasn’t ever read the Bible.   But you know why he hasn’t read the Bible? Because he’s not in it.

Well, hell, Piyush.  Don’t be shy.  Tell us what you really think.  You mad,  bro ’cause  Donnie dissed Carly Fiorina’s looks?  You gonna defend her honor?   Give ’em hell, Piyush!

“I think it’s pretty outrageous for him to be attacking anybody’s appearance when he looks like he’s got a squirrel sitting on his head. I think he should stop attacking other people’s appearances.”

BOOM!  Head Shot!     Not that Piyush’s intended target totally ignored the incoming salvo.   In his own inimitable style,   the front runner returned fire without naming names

Even on the 14th commemoration of the worst day in America’s history, Trump makes it all about him.  Stay classy, Donald.

Yeah, it’s amazing how hardcore these Republicans get when they’ve got to push Donny’s fat ass off of them and the only reason they get any attention paid is they have to tear Trump down to make themselves look big.   When you’ve  been running for president for months and all you’ve got to show for it is a seat at the kid’s table for the debates, you get desperate.

No juice makes losers brave.

“Sieg heil, y’all!”

Murder In the Morning

Alison Parker and Adam Ward: R.I.P.

If you’re looking for videos of two journalists being gunned down, look elsewhere. It’s not here.

If you’re looking for a link to a madman’s manifesto, you’re outta luck. It’s not here either.

If you think I’m going to obsess over the killer of Alison Parker and Adam Ward and why he did it, you’ve got another think coming.   I don’t care why the killer did it.    I’m glad he’s too dead to ever do it again.

If you want someone to be sympathetic to Vester Flanagan, the TV reporter turned psycho killer turned maker of ISIS-style bloody porn videos,  there’s no sympathy for the devil here.

I was actually hoping they would take Mr. Flanagan alive but it didn’t ruin my day when he decided wanted to be taken dead.

I’ve seen a thousand pretty young reporters like Alison Parker doing stand-ups on television a thousand times. These are usually the softball, slice of life, non-news stories every station uses to fill time between the hard stuff, weather and sports.

I’ve seen ’em a thousand times. I’ve never seen a pretty young reporter murdered on live television. I’ve never seen a cameraman’s last act is film his killer.

Whenever you think you’ve seen it all you get a nasty reminder you haven’t seen anything yet.

Fuck Vester and fuck his fucking “manifesto.”

I don’t want to read his manifesto. I don’t want to know his sob story. I don’t care about his petty little grudges and bullshit beefs. I never knew “Bryce Williams” OR Vester Flanagan existed before today and I will NOT give this psycho turd the recognition in death he never got in life.

Vester Flanagan a.k.a “Bryce Williams” a.k.a. Dead Guy.

These chicken shit assholes and their murder-suicides. Why can’t they reverse the order and spare us all their bloody insanity? They always have to reach out and drag someone down with them.

Goddamn coward. Burn forever and in agony, Vester. You worthless, godless, evil, twisted little FUCK.

Maybe it’s because we’ve been here so many times before when the kill zone was a school, an office, a shopping center, a church or anywhere human beings/targets can be found. We’ve seen the blood, the bullet holes, the corpses and the terrible aftermath of a killing spree. We’ve even seen the deadly slaughter play out in real-time.

But this…this is different.

I can’t say I have ever seen a young woman murdered as we watch in horror and revulsion. I can’t say I have seen a murderer exult in his kill by triumphantly posting it all over social media. I can’t say I have seen two people die like this before my disbelieving eyes.

Now I can say I have seen all this and it makes me sick to my stomach and saddened to the core of my soul.

This isn’t about Vester Flanagan being a Black gay man who believed his ex-employer didn’t treat him nicely. I don’t know what his grievances were and I don’t care to know. He’s just an asshole and he’d STILL be an asshole no matter what his race or sexual orientation or gender or religion was.

A comment from Gawker summed up what, if anything Flanagan’s rampage “means.”

Tthis is a cultural problem. Flanagan belongs to a community that prides itself on wanton violence, theft, and brutality. people need to open their eyes to this ongoing trend of American male-on-American crime

That might be too subtle for some so I’lll be blunt.  This is not a Black thing or a White thing. It’s an asshole thing and now that Flanagan is a dead asshole, the world is better now that he’s no longer in it.   If only it had happened one day sooner Parker and Ward would still be alive.

Survived Car Crash. Killed By Cop. (UPDATED)

We know who killed Jon Ferrell, but the legal system seems to be confused.

In the aftermath of the mistrial after the jury failed to reach a verdict in the case of Randall Kerrick, the former Charlotte-Meckenberg police officer who shot and killed 24-year-old Jonathan Ferrell in September 2013, you will inevitably hear law enforcement experts providing explanations about why the jury did not vote to convict Kerrick and possibly send him to prison for 11 years.  Many of these experts will be current and former police officers. This is what you need to know about these “experts.”

Everyone has an opinion. Some even have informed opinions. But sometimes what seems to be an informed opinion it is only impersonating one. What you’re actually hearing is a highly biased opinion designed only to defend bad policing by bad cops.

The excuses are the usual ones. The apologists say Kerrick deserved to lose his job. Kerrick should never be a cop again. But it’s not Kerrick himself, but the police department which hired him that should be punished for his bad policing. Kerrick should go free for his bad policing but it is the taxpayers who should be on the hook for Kerrick’s bad policing. Kerrick shouldn’t be punished for pumping 10 bullets into Jonathan Ferrell, even though the two other officers, both more experienced than Kerrick didn’t fire their guns at all.

While for some it may be plausibly asserted the past experience of someone in the same profession has to make them the go-to experts on how ALL police departments work and how ALL police officers respond to situations as an uncooperative suspect, that is a baseless assertion of authority that defies logic, reality and common sense. Nobody is an expert on everything facet and every situation others in that profession may meet.

The opinion which should carry the most weight isn’t of somebody who doesn’t know Kerrick, doesn’t know what sort of cop he was, doesn’t know how the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department trains its officers, and doesn’t know what their policies and rules are. The opinion which matters most is someone who does.

Randall “Wes” Kerrick used excessive force when the Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officer shot and killed Jonathan Ferrell two years ago, a training expert testified Tuesday.

CMPD Capt. Mike Campagna told jurors that given the circumstances – from what Kerrick knew from dispatchers to how events quickly happened – the 29-year-old officer violated police policies by opening fire on Ferrell as the former college football player ran toward him on a Sept. 14, 2013.

All that’s left of Ferrell’s car. He survived the crash but not the police.

Ferrell, who was unarmed, was hit by 10 gunshots. Most came when Ferrell and Kerrick were a few feet apart or on top of each other.

Campagna said Kerrick was justified in pulling his gun but not in using it. Instead, Kerrick should have holstered his Smith & Wesson 40-caliber pistol and used other options to restrain Ferrell – from firing his Taser, to using his baton or pepper spray, to even kicking or punching the approaching man.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department officers are taught to respond to a threat with only the force needed to subdue a subject, Campagna testified.

What was the highest response Kerrick should have used, prosecutor Teresa Postell asked?

“Non-deadly force,” Campagna said.

“Was shooting Jonathan consistent with CMPD policy and training?” Postell asked.

“No, it was not,” Campagna said.

Some of these experts will express how concerned they are about bad cops and how they must be weeded out.    Do not believe them.  If their lips are moving, they’re lying.

Anybody who continually manufactures excuses for bad policing and then turns around to make noises about “reforming” the police to get rid of the bad apples in the bunch does not sincerely mean it. Reform is what they say. What they do is repeatedly shrug off every incident of inept, incompetent and illegal policing as isolated events which cop-haters will exaggerate only to tear down the police. How many isolated cases does it take before it is obvious there’s nothing isolated about police violence against people of color?

Kerrick didn’t get desk duty or a suspension for shooting Jonathan Ferrell. He got fired and arrested for murder.   There were troubling signs Kerrick might not be found guilty when a grand jury failed to indict him and it took a second to do so.

How might things play out differently if Timothy Loehmann is indicted and tried for killing Tamir Rice or when Michael Slager is indicted and tried for killing Walter Scott or when the cops in Baltimore are tried for killing Freddie Gray?

It won’t play out any differently. Cops and their lawyers know they if they say the Five Magic Words it will be their guaranteed Get Out of Jail Free Card: “I feared for my life” and some sap on a jury or a limp-dick judge or a prosecutor afraid of pissing off the police will swallow this line whole and without question. We saw it with Eric Garner and Michael Brown and Sean Bell and Oscar Grant and Amadou Diallo and Patrick Dorismond and on and on into infinity and beyond.
Michael Dunn killed Jordan Davis because he feared for his life. Theodore Wafer killed Renisha McBride because he feared for his life. George Zimmerman killed Trayvon Martin because he feared for his life. The Fear is the same but civilians, unlike cops, are less likely to have that reasonable doubt granted to them. Zimmerman was an exception and everything he’s been involved in since escaping punishment for Martin’s murder has brought clearly into focus between the two which one was the “thug.”

Cops get that benefit of the doubt. The Fear they claim led them to kill an unarmed man, woman or child is not measurable, but the cop apologists will tell you its real and its significant. In Kerrick’s case, he wasn’t facing Jonathan Ferrell alone. There were two other officers with him and neither one of them fired a shot. Does that mean they were the cowards here and Kerrick, the former animal control officer, was the real courageous one?

If a cop is so afraid for his life the default setting is to kill whomever is making them afraid, why the fuck are they a cop in the first place?

Calling Kerrick a coward is a completely proper term. He panicked and overreacted. He violated his training. He acted recklessly. He used lethal force in a situation where in the judgment of two other police officers it wasn’t necessary to stop Ferrell.

Those are the actions of a coward. A gutless, worthless, murderous COWARD who never should have been a cop. Kerrick should still be taking on angry Chihuahuas and poodles, not blowing away disoriented, injured Black men who had crawled from the wreckage of his totaled vehicle.

Make no mistake of it. What Kerrick did when he squeezed that trigger and pumped bullet after bullet after bullet after bullet into Ferrell until he had no more bullets to pump wasn’t about Kerrick being afraid for his life. It was about Kerrick wanting nothing more than to kill Ferrell and take away his life.

Contrary to the cop show hype crime does pay and criminals do get away with murder.  Especially when the criminal is a cop.
