It's Syracuse

Weather advisory, may get up to a foot of lake effect snow tonight.
It was 72 this afternoon, beautiful sunny skies.
By 5 PM it was in the 40's; rain, cloudy, windy as all get out.
Running around in a t-shirt and three hours later need a winter coat.

Canada, what did we do to piss you off?

So far it has snowed for over 40 hours. We got over two feet of snow and it is still coming down. The drift in front of my house was over 4' high. No way I'm shoveling that. Gonna go out through the garage.

Twin Boom Aircraft Of WWII

Fw 189


But we did it better. Both planes were first flown within a year of each other. The Fw-189 in 1938 and the P-38 in 1939.

The Focke-Wulf Fw 189 Uhu ("Eagle Owl") was a very successful Luftwaffe reconnaissance aircraft used extensively in the Eastern Front. It was unarmed, could carry a 3 man crew, had a combat radius of 420 miles and top speed of less than 250 mph but was extremely maneuverable. It could avoid being shot down by Soviet fighters simply by flying in very tight circles. The Soviets called it "The Frame" because of it's box like silhouette in the sky. About 850 of these aircraft were produced. There is only one in existence today.

Lockheed's P-38 "Lightning" was a heavily armed, 400+ mph fighter. It could also carry two 1,000 bombs and with drop tanks it could be flown across the Atlantic, eliminating the need for transport by ocean born freight.The German Luftwaffe called it "Der Gabelschwanz Teufel" (The Fork-Tailed Devil). It was that good. It was the first USAAF fighter to be delivered to the RAF under its own power. With a range of 2,500 miles, it was the most important fighter in the Pacific Theater.

Japanese mastermind Adm. Yamamoto was killed by a P-38 that shot down his transport plane. Of course the US Navy had broken the Japanese military cypher codes by then so the P-38's had a good idea where he would be. Lockheed manufactured over 1,000  of these fighters in variants up to the P-38L. The Air Force retired the Lightning in 1949.

This Oughta Be Good

Washington (CNN)President-elect Donald Trump intends to nominate Sen. Jeff Sessions to be his next attorney general, the presidential transition announced Friday.

Sessions, 69, is currently serving his fourth Senate term and was the first sitting senator to endorse Trump. During Trump's campaign, he served as a key validator from within the Republican establishment at critical times and urged Republicans to coalesce around Trump.

Keep The Monsters Out

From Breitbart:
Mexican authorities have arrested the former mayor of a rural community in the border state of Coahuila in connection with the kidnapping, murder and incineration of hundreds of victims through a network of ovens at the hands of the Los Zetas cartel. The arrest comes after Breitbart Texas exposed not only the horrors of the mass extermination, but also the cover-up and complicity of the Mexican government.
And the idiot democrats are raving about the evil that Trump represents. Authorities estimate that perhaps 300 men, women and children were kidnapped, tortured and burnt to ashes by members of the Los Zetas drug cartel.

And Trump is the new Hitler? Why isn't the media all over this horror?

Mexico is a failed state and President-elect Trump knows it. Our borders have become an object of ridicule to millions; monsters can come and go as they please and ravage America the same way. This is part and parcel of the Alinsky strategy that Pelosi, Clinton, Obama and all the rest of the communists in government have embraced.

Build the wall.
Make it tall, make it strong.
Staff it, man it, enforce the laws, throw the illegals out, don't let the monsters in.
Despite the magnitude, news outlets in both the U.S. and Mexico largely ignored the story as cartels continued to reign in that country with impunity. After Breitbart Texas’ exposé, authorities charged a handful of Los Zetas members in connection with the incinerations inside the prison, but public officials had managed to escape scrutiny.

The governor at the time of the massacre, Humberto Moreira, was accused and later released in Spain for having been a surrogate of the Los Zetas cartel–however he, too, has managed to avoid facing a judge in Mexico. Moreira had various assets seized by U.S. courts.

For those of my readers who do not know the story of Adolph Eichmann, look here. I was thirteen years old when the Israels hung this piece of Nazi excrement; I still remember reading the papers and watching the news about his trial and execution. Take a little time to read it. How Eichmann manged to elude the Allied authorities after the war is interesting - and discouraging

Drop The Snake And Back Away

It's time for Republicans to once again fasten their seat belts, but this time for a good reason.
Vice President-elect Mike Pence told House Republicans in a closed-door meeting Thursday to be ready to move a lot of legislation next year. 
“We’re going to move an agenda” focused on rebuilding the military and improving the economy, Pence told reporters after the meeting. 
In his remarks to House Republicans, Pence talked about how he and the new administration wanted members to “buckle up,” and get ready for a speedy start on policy. He also solicited suggestions for candidates to fill administration posts. 
“Donald Trump is a man of action and we’re counting on you,” Pence said, according to Ways and Means Chairman Kevin Brady. The Texas Republican said that Pence mentioned a tax overhaul and Obamacare, but didn’t get into specifics.

And then he has to go and play with this snake.

Look at the difference.

Hillary just a few months ago at debate

Hillary speaking last night at a benefit

Looks like Hillary will soon be pushing a shopping cart filled with campaign posters and empty beer cans, muttering to herself  and yelling at squirrels.

I didn't do a thing to change or doctor up these pictures.This is the result of unrealistic, crushing ambition that is thwarted. She is shaken and stirred. If she doesn't pull herself out of it, she'll most likely be dead in a few years - or less if she's hitting the sauce.

And this is where loved ones step in to help. A healthy marriage surrounding her with an attentive husband and loving children would certainly buck her up, help her regain her equilibrium ... right.

Of course this may all be a play for sympathy; the poor dear thing is suffering! She's soooo disappointed that she couldn't be serving her country and helping all those people who need her. I'm just not sure if her ego would let her walk out the door looking like that.

Hard to tell with the Clintons, they're such liars and grifters.

Now that I've thought about it some, I believe that she's preparing the battlefield, conditioning the jury pool. She's in too rough shape to be arrested and prosecuted so leave her alone. We should anticipate future news reports about her failing health to support this plan of hers. Of course the media will blame Trump for this.

Strange Kaahkaah

The above is a flapping robot ray powered by genetically engineered rat heart cells.
It is entirely artificial.
Story here.

The kind of bacteria one uses is important going forward. For this particular experiment researchers used E. coli that clocks in a fairly respectable storage of 100 bytes. However, certain bacteria, such as Sulfolobus tokodaii may be capable of storing thousands of bytes.
Other scientists claim that they can store the equivalent of 700 terabytes of data into a gram of DNA.
You can't carry this around on a key chain. I'd be afraid to poop; all it wants is to sit in your small intestine with your entire DVD library stored in its nucleus.
Story here.

I can't help but think that maybe all this research is not a good idea. Or maybe some people have too much idle time on their hands.

These guys have that problem but they're more like, "Hold  my beer and watch me do this."

Pork Dumping

It's a sight that will make even a strong man wince. Hundreds of pounds of pig parts fell off a truck and onto a Florida highway, blocking traffic and causing delays.
A gory mass of pig carcasses toppled from a truck and scattered on a busy Florida highway on Wednesday morning.

Oh, the mess. Oh, the smell. Oh, Florida.

The pig pileup happened on Interstate 75 near Sarasota.

Several carcasses fell from a truck that failed to safely secure the already dead livestock on I-75 north near Fruitville Road around 9 a.m., the Florida Highway Patrol reported.
One motorist's vehicle was disabled by a massive, bouncing hamhock. The driver, Tallahassee CPA Samuel Weisskopf, stated that he hadn't since a such a massive amount of pork dumped since October of 2014 when the Federal Reserve ended it's QE (Quantitative Easement) program whereby $4.5 trillion of pork was dumped on Wall Street.

It took years for Wall Street to recover from this reckless action.
Hopefully I-75 will not take as long.

Pelosi Fights To Retain Leadership Position

Please please please please please  please please please please please please please please please please please please  please please please please please please please please please please please please  please please please please please please please please please please please please  please  please let this loony bitch keep her position.

 -March 2013-
After several sleepless nights, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi 
initiates legislation that will supply free stool softener to seniors.

 From the WashTimes:
Rep. Nancy Pelosi formally announced Wednesday she is running to retain her spot as House minority leader and sent a warning shot to potential rivals by informing her colleagues that she has already locked up “the support of more than two-thirds” of the Democratic caucus.

Mrs. Pelosi has led the caucus since 2003, but the results of the election last week convinced the caucus to delay a scheduled vote this week on leadership posts until Nov. 30, with members saying they want more time to digest the shellacking the party took.

Rep. Tim Ryan of Ohio, meanwhile, has emerged as a potential challenger and has warned that the party has lost touch with working-class voters in the Rust Belt and Midwest that it will need to recapture a House majority.

Mrs. Pelosi, though, made it clear in a letter to her colleagues Wednesday that she does not plan on giving up her post.

In The News

Her Old One Stunk:
I am wondering, who got close enough to sniff that out? Medals and commendations are in order. And perhaps a lung transplant.
Donna Brazile fired back at her former employer, saying CNN ripped her “a new one” instead of letting her defend herself against leaked emails showing she gave Hillary Clinton a sneak peek at debate questions.

“I wish CNN had given me some other things, like the ability to defend myself rather than ripping me a new one,” Brazile said at a Monday event at Hollins University, according to the Roanoke Times.

“CNN never gave me a question,” Brazile said of her resignation.
Well Donna,  try to keep this one clean while it's still bright and shiny.

We Don't Care, We Don't Vote, We're Just Here To Get Your Goat:
They did catch someone's goat. Said goat wearing badges and guns.
Portland, Ore.—More than half of the anti-Trump protesters arrested in Portland didn’t vote in Oregon, according to state election records. At least sixty-nine demonstrators either didn’t turn in a ballot or weren’t registered to vote in the state. KGW compiled a list of the 112 people arrested by the Portland Police Bureau during recent protests.
The Great Unwashed melds with The Great Unregistered and is escorted off the field by The Great We Don't Give A Rat's Ass About Snowflakes.

Now It's Pepsi - For Those Who Think Wrong:

Remember the remake of an old Pepsi commercial on TV?
PepsiCo’s CEO said the election of Donald Trump as president was terrifying her employees.

“I had to answer a lot of questions from my daughters, from our employees. They were all in mourning,” PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi told Andrew Ross Sorkin at The New York Times’ DealBook conference on Thursday.

The Pepsico stock dropped 2% since Indri attacked the president-elect.
What is truly terrifying is that the jobs of tens of thousands of people depend upon this mindless twit.

Obama's Excellent Adventure
It's just like he took a victory lap through Detroit.
Mr Obama's visit to Athens, Greece, was supposed to be a grand farewell, but descended into chaos when angry rioters took to the street to demand he leave.

Youths riding motorbikes, carrying wooden clubs and launching petrol bombs tried to break a police cordon and confront Mr Obama directly.
I hope Mr. Obama enjoyed his Bill Ayers inspired welcome. Nothing like the smell of petroleum and the spectacle of flaming Molotov Cocktails lofting through the air to appreciate a well armored tank.

Tell Her Again Rick

CHICAGO (CBS) — Even as President-elect Donald Trump vows to immediately deport 2 to 3 million undocumented immigrants when he takes office in January, Mayor Rahm Emanuel is reaffirming Chicago’s commitment as a so-called “sanctuary city.”

“To be clear about what Chicago is, it always will be a sanctuary city,” the mayor said Monday.

Emanuel sought to reassure those worried about Trump’s interview on “60 Minutes,” in which he said he plans to immediately deport or incarcerate up to 3 million undocumented immigrants who have criminal records.
