Wassup South of The Border?

Saturday and my mind is free of the manure left in it by the mainstream media….all the crap that they want us to believe blindly……..oh well, today and tomorrow I can post on things that interest me…….

I like history and archeology helps to make history more alive…….I have always found the Maya to be extraordinary people….the pyramids, the astronomy……..the cities that are some of the greatest features of the New World…..scientists say that a very small percentage of the Mayan culture has bee uncovered and from time to time a new find is discovered…….

Archaeologists have long known of a “lost” Mayan city boasting an incredible “earth monster” facade—and now someone has found it. Slovenian explorer Ivan Sprajc came out of the Yucatan jungle in Mexico with photos of the city, Lagunita, and a second, previously unknown city he’s calling Tamchen, the Washington Post reports. Both were apparently abandoned around 1,000 AD along with other cities in the area. But only Lagunita has the “profusely decorated facade with a monster-mouth doorway,” as the Slovenia Academy of Sciences and Arts puts it. The facade depicts “the gaping maws of the earth and fertility diety.”

Which diety is that, again? “A Maya earth deity related with fertility,” Sprajc tells Discovery News. “These doorways symbolize the entrance to a cave and, in general, to the watery underworld, place of mythologized origin of maize and abode of ancestors.” An American explorer spotted the city (and its famous mouth) in the 1970s, but no one had been able to retrace his steps in the dense jungle. Now we have Lagunita, with its “monumental buildings,” game court for Maya ball, and roughly 65-foot-high pyramid, the Yucatan Times reports. Judging by its buildings and inscriptions on monuments, “Lagunita must have been the seat of a relatively powerful polity,” says an expert on the project

That is just cool….but let’s continue South….to the magical land of the Inca….Peru.

Ever heard of the Nazca lines?  Lines etched in the top of a mountain that cannot be identified until one is up in the air and then there are spiders, whales, birds, etc…..some people say that aliens made these as beacons for other space travelers….it seems that the ones discovered back in the 20th century are not the only ones….

Sandstorms in Peru have revealed mysterious designs believed to have been etched into the desert thousands of years ago. The newly exposed geoglyphs, discovered last week by a pilot flying over the region, include a snake nearly 200 feet long as well as a bird and some llama-like creatures, reports the Independent. Other designs, known as the Nazca Lines, were first spotted in the desert region from the air in 1939, the Daily Mail notes, and archaeologists are now working to confirm that the new lines are genuine.

The Nazca Lines—described by UNESCO as “a unique and magnificent artistic achievement that is unrivaled” elsewhere in the prehistoric world—are thought to have been etched into the desert by the Nazca people sometime before 500AD, and they include long lines and geometric shapes as well the shapes of animals and plants. Many scholars believe they were used for astronomic rituals, but one of Peru’s top experts tells El Comercio that the new finds confirm the relationship between “the ancient people who occupied this arid desert with rain and worship of water.”

There is the round-up of recent archeological discoveries…..

Anyone got anything to add?

Congress Could Privatize Asteroids, Because There Isn’t Anything Else To Do

My weekend begins and let us kick it off with humor…..

Sad part about this is my Rep in DC, Palazzo, is one of the sponsors…..the guy has been a moron his entire life and this does not change that attitude by me….

 

Congress Could Privatize Asteroids, Because There Isn’t Anything Else To Do.

Hope Solo and the domestic violence case no one is talking about – The Washington Post

The NFL is running around trying to salvage its rep….after all it is a multi-billion dollar enterprise…..repeat…MULTI-BILLION Dollar…….

It seems that the big story is the domestic violence is killing the NFL……but why does it not matter elsewhere?

2014 Babbling Buffoons Of Babylon #18

Well did not have to wait very long to start another edition of B3……..I want to thank my brethren on the Right for having a motor mouth…..since they cannot help themselves…..I have an almost endless supply of of totally absurd BS…..thank you…….

1–All news agencies are trying to find the perfect analysis for the handling of ISIS……FOX News and more specifically Hannity has found the ‘expert’ made for FOX News……

………..as a full-fledged recipient of wingnut welfare, “Duck Dynasty” reality TV star and phony woodsman Phil Robertson appeared on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show on Tuesday night in order to offer his solution to the chaos wrought in the Middle East by the Islamic extremist group ISIS.

“In this case, you either have to convert them, which I think would be next to impossible — I’m not giving up on them, but I’m just saying either convert them or kill them,” Robertson explained to Hannity. “One or the other.”

So this dipstick has the answer…….convert them to Christ or kill them……sorry makes him NO better than ISIS on this issue……or is he saying Christianity is no better that the beliefs of ISIS?  He is a moron and the Right loves themselves some morons….a perfect fit.

2–One of my fave big mouth assholes, Michael Savage has come up with the best piece of manure yet………..

“This entire government is geared up to fight a war against white people,” Savage said. “What if a group of white people had rioted or does riot in America after Obama grants amnesty? What if they loot and they burn? You know and I know the attorney general is not going to come out and say, ‘I feel your pain.’”

Savage added: “Could this be the most racist administration in American history? Are we allowed to ask the question? Do you know of a modern American presidency that was as racist as the Obama administration?

A war on white people?  God this dude is a moron……

3–My regular readers know what I think of religious morons……in case you may have missed it…..worthless as tits on a banana peel…….and guess what?  There is a new low for the religious Right………

Rev. Austin Miles has published yet anotherbrilliantcolumn for Renew America, this time alleging that President Obama has “no past girl friends [sic]” (even though “there are photos on the internet showing him with many BOY friends”), and therefore must be promptly removed from office.

“When did he meet Michele [sic] and how? Are there photos? Every president provides the public with all their photos, etc. for their library. What has he released? Nada – other than what was in this so-called biography!,

What can I say to make these twats sound more moronic?  nothing….the idiots do just fine without my help.

4–Keeping with the GOP or conservative talking points….FOX News contributor Eric Erikson had lots to say about people working for minimum wage………

If you’re a 30 -something year- old person and you’re making minimum wage, you’ve probably failed at life. It’s not that life dealt you a bad hand. Life does not deal you cards. It’s that you failed at life.

I love the arrogance and disdain for human life that these pigs illustrate every time they open their moronic mouths…….and this douche is one of the biggest pricks the Right has…..

5–The Right and their paranoia over immigrants meets NO boundaries……the newest crap comoing from a familiar figure….a dude named Gheen…….

William Gheen of the anti-immigrant Americans for Legal Immigration (ALIPAC) told WorldNetDaily yesterday that undocumented immigrants are a greater threat to America than ISIS, but that President Obama will still encourage ISIS to attack America so that his party wins the upcoming elections and he can impose a dictatorship.

William Gheen, president of Americans for Legal Immigration or ALIPAC, also said he believes concerns about ISIS overseas pale in comparison to the threat of rampant illegal immigration. He did not hear the Buchanan interview but made similar statements Monday to WND.

“ISIS could cut off the heads of journalists once a month for the next five years and that’s not going to destroy America, but Obama’s pumping of illegal immigrants into the country will,” Gheen said.

He said the Obama administration was “going into full stealth mode” to continue its open-borders policy as quietly as possible, and may even give the impression to some on the left that it is abandoning its commitment to “comprehensive immigration reform,” which is a euphemism for amnesty. The progressives will shout and scream that Obama is backing away from his pledge to grant amnesty by delaying the inevitable, but this is all political theater, in Gheen’s eyes.

What better tag line than to tie immigrants with ISIS……..I want to say something disgusting but just reading his words is disgusting enough for me…..

6–FOX News continuously hits new lows……and this piece on rape shows how low they are willing to go……

Following the news that a Missouri county prosecutor had asked a special prosecutor to review the charge that a 14-year-old girl was raped by an older high school student in 2012, Fox News host Shepard Smith invited criminal defense attorney Joseph DiBenedetto to explain the case on his show.

“I’m not saying she deserved to be raped,” said DiBenedetto, “but knowing the facts as we do here including what the prosecutor has set forth, this case is going nowhere and it’s going nowhere quick.”

“But what did she expect to happen at 1 a.m. in the morning after sneaking out?” continued DiBenedetto. “What it comes down to is this: if you’re a woman who likes to party and have a good time, you have to choose between that and the very real possibility of being raped.”

DiBenedetto was referring to the case of Daisy Coleman, a high school student who claims that authorities in the town of Maryville, Mo. helped protect her alleged assailants from criminal charges.

Is this the new legal paradigm for the US?  Blame the victim for the crime…..if so I do not want any part of it.

7–A possible GOP candidate for president has trotted out the old reliable diatribe……..

In an interview with Newsmax host J.D. Hayworth today, Ben Carson said that if people want to know the truth about President Obama, they should simply “read ‘Mein Kampf’ and read the works of Vladimir Lenin.” “Mein Kampf,” of course, was written by Adolf Hitler and is filled with anti-Communist diatribes.

Is this the mentality that the GOP is looking for in a candidate?  If so, then the Dems have NOTHING top fear.

8–This douche bag cannot shut up and I love it!

potential GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson said that President Obama doesn’t “have the same worldview” as the typical American. Carson, who has previously implied that Obama is a Nazi and a communist, said that the president is bent on introducing “government control of everything” by “getting rid of God” in order to bring about communism.

You look through history, you look at Cuba, you look at Russia, you look at a lot of places that have a socialist/communist base, but previously they didn’t have that and they were a free society. What happened that’s common in every one of those societies? Two basic things. You get rid of God — and you see the attack on God in our country that is going on right now — that’s number one because you have to replace God with your dogma, you have to become the primary authority of everything. And the second thing you have to do is you have to gain control of your people, and the best way to do that is you take over health care. Everybody needs health care, you get control of that. Get rid of God, get control of health care and you’re well on your way to fundamentally changing society

I just love morons that talk about history that know nothing about it……Cuba was free/  Bet you could not find too many that would agree under Batista’s rule….and Russia with a czar…now there is freedom to be proud of…..I love ‘em…..GOP potential?  HA HA HA!

9–one last moron for this edition and it is a good one…..he is a preacher at that…….

Mark Driscoll routinely curses and makes biblical references to oral sex during his sermons at his Mars Hill megachurch—but the Seattle pastor’s controversial words may have finally done him in. A female blogger at Patheos dug up comments Driscoll made under a pseudonym on a church message board in 2001 that are, well, interesting. To wit: “The first thing to know about your penis is … it is not your penis. God created you, and it is his penis.” The bizarre message then notes that penises are borrowed and need a home, and that a man’s wife “makes a very nice home.” Other nuggets: a warning against breaking into another man’s home (ie, sleeping with another man’s wife) and a call for a wife to “rejoice at seeing [her husband's] penis rise to greet her.” (Read more of his comments here.)

GOD I love these religious types they are a source of amusement, at least for me……

So ends another edition of B3….never fear there are still mounds of bullsh*t from the Right and I will be glad to pass it on to you….stay tuned and keep the faith (no pun intended)……

The McKeon Amendment – A Lend-Lease Act for Terrorists by Justin Raimondo — Antiwar.com

House has voted to fund the training of ‘moderate’ rebels…..as soon as we decide just who those rebels are with ‘vetting’…..ah humor……this whole arming ‘moderates’ is not a good plan, in my opinion……

Your thoughts?

Somalia: Revenge Best Served Cold

Inkwell Institute

East Africa Desk

 

I am sure that most action loving movie goers have see “Black Hawk Down”…..the story of a disastrous operation in Somalia in 1993 in the battle of Mogadishu…….many American troops were killed and as a result we soon decided that Somalia was a hopeless cause battling the war lord militants……

But even though the main body of US troops departed there has been a small but active team of American special forces operating in the country.  The objective is the destruction of Al Shabaab, Islamist extremists….now after about 20 years the US has successfully taken out the key figure in Al Shabaab……….the world learned that a US missile strike in southern Somalia on Monday had targeted Ahmed Godane, the leader of Al Shabaab, a terrorist with a $7 million bounty on his head.

 

The US is immediately began the back slapping…..why?  Analysts predict that if Godane has been killed, the group that he has led since 2008 will splinter. Over the last three years Godane has tightened his grip on the organization, ousting, alienating, or killing internal critics and rivals. Godane’s unassailable position gave Al Shabaab a certain ruthless direction but leaves it no clear successor.

So we have given Al Shabaab a lethal attack?  CIA analysts want you to believe that this will no longer be a threat in East Africa……as usual those guys have NO idea what is going on in the world…….

(Newser) – Somalian Islamic extremist rebels al-Shabab named Abu Ubeid Ahmed Omar to be their new leader following the killing of the previous leader by a US airstrike, said a commander of the group. The Somali militants unanimously selected Omar today at a meeting in an undisclosed location in Somalia, said rebel commander Abu Mohammed. Omar is believed to be an assumed name, and the new leader’s real name is not known. The Somali group had to appoint a new leader following the death of Ahmed Abdi Godane, the group’s spiritual leader who was killed by an airstrike on Monday.

My first reaction to the news was….are you guys high?  You just painted a target on the dude’s ass.

My second reaction is………..Once again the CIA has proven, at least to me, that they have NO clue what is happening in East Africa……….what about all their other “actionable” intel?

Time for new thinking in DC and international relations……..our people now are clueless.  Time after time these people have blown the analysis of a situation…….why do we continue to trust a group that has continuously been proven to be wrong and ill informed?
