Let Me See If I Got This Straight, Josh


We can’t trust the Czar of Russia to speak his mind without being told what to say, but we can still totally believe this ironclad document, along with everything else Barack’s told us.  I think I’m getting the picture…

Moonwalker Down

eugene_cernanThe last man to leave his footprints on the surface of the Moon, Eugene A. Cernan, a crack naval aviator sought out and recruited by NASA as a Moon mission commander, has died today.  He was 82.
Gene Cernan flew the LM on Apollo 10 down from orbit to fairly close to the lunar surface, (NOT landing) and then did it again on the mission he commanded, Apollo 17, in which he landed and spent three days on the surface.

A graduate of Purdue University’s Electrical Engineering School, he was very generous in his visits and time spent back at the University in later years. He spent many hours with aerospace engineering graduate students like me, answering questions about the technical aspects of his flights. I got to meet him on a number of occasions, and he was always very gracious, humble and rock solid, as one would expect from a naval aviator who slammed hurtling pieces of burning metal onto the decks of aircraft carriers about 200 times. Ice water flowed in his veins, and I was quite sure that he was one of those Apollo commanders for whom space flight was nothing to get excited about. Godspeed, Gene.

Cass Gets Organized

Cassandra Bird (not her real name, and thank goodness, because this would embarrass her) over at Adrienne’s place, is getting organized.  I can’t think of a better time throw out old crap and start over.  Good for you, Cass!

Hollywood Meltdown Gets Real: Joss Whedon Goes Full Psycho

Really, Joss? Sociopath much? I guess love’s done trumping hate with you broad-minded liberals, huh?
This came up on Twitter last night, and this morning, Breitbart covered it along with the social media blowback. But, in my view, Whedon’s worse tweets were the ones that literally called for civil war to keep Trump from being sworn in. So much for peaceful transition…

Saturday Night Jazz & Acoustic Frampton & Smoky Rockabilly

This studio acoustic version is technically a lot better. Peter still gets a little excited in the live performances…

Visual warning on this one. Miss Beauchamp shows enough to require cold showering, and Don Draper makes an appearance with cigarettes and an Old Fashioned, as is proper for listening to good Rockabilly music.

Shock and Awe: After Trump’s CNN Smackdown, New Media is ‘Loaded for Bear’ and More Emboldened than Ever

Awesome video and commentary from The Swog Blog:

“Lads, I’ve seen a lot of cringe. I’ve seen male feminists, self-hating whites, and literal shakings. But now I have found the Holy Grail:”

From Dianny at the Patriot Retort:
“They really went into this thinking they were going to be the ones in charge.  It was extremely satisfying watching them realize they weren’t.”

From Steven Crowder:

From Newt Gingrich:
“The reporter was an idiot. Trump pointed out he was an idiot. Most people in the country thought he was an idiot. I thought from Trump’s standpoint it was fine.  I’m hoping Spicer will simple ban Acosta for 60 days, like hockey were you bench somebody. Acosta needs to be benched for a couple of weeks.”

From David Seaman:
“It’s a new world.  It’s just not the New World Order that these old creeps had in mind for us.”

“We’re voting with our wallets and what we choose to watch, and it’s not gonna be CNN.”

“There will be no New World Order. There will be no destruction of the United States. The United States will become stronger than ever before. Fuck you, globalists.”

On Trump: “We’re witnessing the birth of a new American political dynasty, in my opinion.”

From Larry Lambert at Virtual Mirage:
“Well of course CNN broadcasts fake news. Anything to discredit the president. It was CNN that leaked the debate questions to Hillary Clinton. They are an advocacy agent of influence for the Democrat Party and the corrupt progressive elitist establishment.”

From Adrienne:
“It’s about damn time someone stood up to these purveyors of lies.”

From BlondeInTheBellyOfTheBeast:

While others… not so much:

Merry Christmas Revolutionaries!

We even wish some happiness to those jerky Obamas traveling to Hawaii and forcing hundreds of Secret Service agents to endure the holidays away from their families for the eighth time…  Hope and Change, Folks!


We have much to celebrate, but nothing more so than the gift of the Christ Child.  May he always live in our hearts and take all bitterness and regret and sinfulness from us.

I apologize for being so scarce lately, especially to Hardnox for whom I’ve written nothing lately.  Just been insanely busy getting work done for the end-o’-year and traveling and getting stranded on the east coast by the profoundly stupid Frontier Airlines and hunting down Solaratov.  Turns out, he’s spending Christmas in the hospital for some cancer treatment complications.  That’s his story, anyway.  The nurses are awfully young and attractive, so I think he has other motivations, frankly.

Merry Christmas from the Grunt and Gruntessa of Monte Cristo!
