How Come She Knew and They Didn’t?

By now, loyal readers of this lofty blog have likely seen that, yes, there was indeed violence in D C yesterday.

A n t * f * infiltrated the crowd of p* triots at the Cap i tol building. And all hell broke loose.  Go figure… Who could have guessed? (Except all of us.)

Sadly, a female 14-year-Air Force veteran was shot and killed, allegedly by the Cap i tol Building police. (It is on video all over so cial m* dia, but I won’t post it here.)

And according to the R*d P* ll 7 8 podcast last night, a man standing near them in the crowd, before anyone even went into the building, died from cardiac arrest after a concussion grenade was thrown from police into the crowd.

2 other people died, but no details have been released yet, but they are thinking it is medically-related, like the case mentioned above. (i.e., a heart attack from the ensuing chaos.)

The ri o t er s who were video-taped doing the destruction of the windows, etc.,  and the one guy who was pictured presiding over an empty Congress have been identified as A n t * f * through face recognition software. Although some p * triots also went into the Capitol, after An t * f * broke through the door.

(Apparently there was wifi inside the building and so some of the rioters were taping it all and uploading it to social m* dia immediately. I saw almost all of it in “real time”, although it took hours before I got a good understanding of what I was looking at.)

If you listen to the R*d P* ll 7 8 podcast on Dlive (I don’t know how to copy a link to it here because it hasn’t uploaded to r u m b l e yet), they describe in detail exactly what happened while they were there at the Cap i tol yesterday. They also describe what I believe they called a funnel war game — where the police made it extremely easy for everyone to get through the first few fences & flimsy barricades, but once hundreds of thousands of people had funneled on to the grounds and the riot broke out, there were only 2 small exits, very far apart and difficult to get to. So as thousands of people tried to turn back and get out, thousands more, who were still unaware of the riot (because there was no cell phone signal for anyone to text or to contact anyone else), kept funneling in.

Chaos.

And their conclusion, based on a lot more than I’ve mentioned here, was that it was a setup to make Tr**p’s supporters look like “white supremacist terrorists”.

That’s what the main stream me d i a called them. As far as I know, A n t * f*’s presence was never mentioned on mainstream m * dia.

Anyway.

As far as the feared social m* dia c * n sorship, so far, obviously, I’m still here, however, as expected, they immediately blocked Tr**p’s accounts on F   B, Insta gr a m, and tw * tt*r, so his speech to his followers to try to remain peaceful and go home was only aired on alternative media sites. No one else in the country saw it.

Here it is below for your viewing pleasure. Tr **p has long since been evacuated to a military base in T X. (BTW, he gave his main speech to millions of followers in front of the W H yesterday afternoon, completely surrounded by bullet-proof glass.)

Okay, also on the c * s *r ship topic — L *n W**d has now been permanently banned from tw * tt *r but you can follow his comments  on  p a  r  l e r.

And this is some of what he’s saying: Now that v  p  P * nc e and con gress folded and certified B * den, the c o u p d ‘ e t a t  — a Capital offense of high treason —  has officially been committed. Now it is a completed crime.

He further says, many tr ai  tors will be arrested & jailed in the coming days.

You know, gang, as sick to my stomach as I sometimes get from L* n W**d’s recent tw ** ts because I didn’t want to believe some of them, many of them have now come true. Including P * nc e folding, and Lo e ffl er being completely untrustworthy because she is married to millions of dollars from c h *  n *.

(Which reminds me, the news out of h  *  ng k *  ng is sickening.)

Anyway,  L*n W **d has maintained for several days that P *  nc * is going to be arrested for tr e a s o n. But he has also been saying that P * n c * is a p * d * ph * le who prefers young teenage b  o  y  s.

Well, if it’s true, there’s that pesky blackmail angle again. That theory that sometimes it gets in the way of focusing on one’s job…

Well, Tr **p is promising a peaceful transition to B * den, even though there is still all this talk of arrests yet to be made.

So we shall see. However the dice fall, the next 2 weeks are going to be Hell on Earth time here in the U S. I’m not sure how my nerves will handle it. It is extremely exhausting. Plus, in keeping with popular Leftist sensibilities, I’m getting canceled by my few remaining friends. I guess since I had been trying to warn them of the violence that did indeed happen yesterday, they somehow blame me that it happened, or that I supported what happened.

Really, all I was trying to do was keep people safe and ask them to stop drinking the Kool-Aid of main stream m* dia. Still, to me, fighting for the C * n st * tu ti on is more important than false friends. The document will be here long after I will.

On a very interesting note: Nick Cave sent out his first Red Hand File since before Christmas. And he announced the title of the new album he and Warren Ellis have recorded (or are still recording?): CARNAGE.

How perfectly appropriate. I can’t wait. (But will I be listening to it as a citizen of B* den’s c o m m  u n i s t regime, or Tr**p’s C*n stitu tional Republic?)

Okay, gang. We shall see what the next 2 weeks unveil. Thanks for visiting. I love you guys. See ya.

Grabbing the Brass Ring!

That illustration above is connected to my post from the other evening, Memory Lane.

In case you aren’t American or don’t know what a merry-go-round is, or why grabbing the brass ring was a fun thing to do, or why I would want to save it for something like 30 years… ??? So I saw this illustration and thought it may help give you a happy “visual”!

Okay!! Onward to today!!

I did indeed finish editing Peitor’s book yesterday and sent it back over to him. but it took me a lot longer than I’d thought it would — mostly because it was incredibly hot & humid here yesterday and so I was having the breathing problems again.  But eventually, everything got under control and I got everything done.

Today is ALL ABOUT finally getting back to Letter #8 (“The Choice to Kill”) for Girl in the Night: Erotic Love Letters to the Muse. Yay!

I’ve also started doing a good, old-fashioned aerobics routine around here. The tai-chi didn’t seem to be helping me at all with my metabolism. So between tai-chi and yoga, I was super flexible and super calm & relaxed, but not able to kick up my metabolism back to how it felt before I got the virus.

I’ve done yoga now for about 13 years, but I also always used to walk — a lot. After I began having hip joint issues, I became really tentative about doing too much walking anymore, even though the glucosamine supplements work great. They really do.

But, finally, the other day, it dawned on me to try going back to low-impact aerobics, which I used to swear by for years — many years ago. And, voila! It’s working!!

And even though maybe you’d think that the breathing issues and the high humidity (i.e., right now it’s 98% humidity and I can barely breathe) — you’d think that doing a bunch of aerobics would make the breathing more difficult, but I found that it’s the opposite. I actually breathe better when I’m doing aerobics and my heart is pumping more.

But since I can’t figure out, yet, how to sit at my desk and write (or post to the blog) while doing a bunch of aerobics, I’m sort of stuck with not breathing for most of the day — and praying for rain so that the humidity will disperse!

Well, okay!!

Let’s see. Right as I sat down at my desk, I got a text from Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds (to me personally — I feel certain that I’m the only one who got it!!) that a new video had been uploaded to YouTube. It’s an instrumental, soundtrack piece by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis — very atmospheric, really lovely: Far From Men 2

I don’t know if it’s being added to Bad Seed TeeVee or not, but more new content has indeed been added to that channel recently, so check it out!!

Also, Nick Cave sent out such a beautiful Red Hand Files letter today — it was Issue #100 !! (They are called “issues” but I think of them more as letters, but he answers questions that people ask him, so they are “replies.” So that’s why a lot of the time, I call them “thingies.”)

Anyway, this reply was so endearing. Really, just so sweet. It’s another very short one so you can read it in about 5 seconds if you so choose. It is here.  (And it concerns another type of ring that would have sentimental value!!) (Probably more so than a brass ring from the merry-go-round at Coney Island, though.)

(It all reminds me of a sort of sad story about one of my wedding rings — my second marriage. We got engaged at Tiffany’s — the main store, the one on 5th Avenue in NYC, so my engagement ring and the matching wedding band came from Tiffany’s and were very valuable.  But then, after I had left my second husband, and the man I was living with after that, and very much in love with, turned out to have a severe gambling addiction that suddenly reared its ugly head, and before I had time to even discover it, he had gambled away my life savings — along with a $9,000 check I’d just gotten from the insurance company (I know, this sounds like a Joni Mitchell song) — and as part of trying to not lose the house, I had to sell my Tiffany engagement ring and the matching wedding band. I was divorced, so I guess it wasn’t the end of the world, but it still really upset me to have to do that. A lot.)

Anyway. In keeping with the recent happier trip down Memory Lane… Here’s a photo of the wedding rings from my first marriage.  The yellow gold one was from Macy’s Herald Square, and it was the ring we used on our wedding day. The ring beneath it, though, even though it hasn’t been polished in decades, is actually more valuable. It’s white gold and was a wedding gift from my husband’s parents in Singapore. They bought us matching rings.

Well, okay!

I’ve gotta get started here, folks. I leave you with my last-night-and-breakfast- listening music from this morning!! The awesome George Michael smash hit from 1987, “Father Figure,” from the album Faith. I will not explain why I was suddenly thinking about this song after all these years!! It is sufficient to say that I love this  fucking song!! I hope you do, too.

All righty! Enjoy your Friday, wherever you are in the world. Thanks for visiting, gang. I love you guys. See ya!

 

“Father Figure”

That’s all I wanted:
Something special, something sacred
In your eyes.
For just one moment
To be bold and naked
At your side.

Sometimes I think that you never
Understand me (understand me).
Maybe this time is forever.
Say it can be, whoa.

That’s all you wanted:
Something special, someone sacred
In your life.
Just for one moment
To be warm and naked
At my side.

Sometimes I think that you never
Understand me (understand me).
But something tells me together
We’d be happy, oh, oh.

(baby)
I will be your father figure.
(oh, baby)
Put your tiny hand in mine.
(I’d love to)
I will be your preacher teacher.
(be your daddy)
Anything you have in mind.
(it would make me)
I will be your father figure.
(very happy)
I have had enough of crime.
(please let me)
I will be the one who loves you
‘Til the end of time (of time).

That’s all I wanted,
But sometimes love can be mistaken
For a crime.
That’s all I wanted:
Just to see my baby’s
Blue eyes shine.

This time I think that my lover
Understands me (understands me).
Please
If we have faith in each other
Then we can be
Strong.

(baby)
I will be your father figure.
Put your tiny hand in mine.
(my baby)
I will be your preacher teacher.
Anything you have in mind.
I will be your father figure.
I have had enough of crime.
I will be the one who loves you
‘Til the end of time.

If you are the desert
I’ll be the sea.
If you ever hunger
Hunger for me.
Whatever you ask for
That’s what I’ll be.

So when you remember the ones who have lied,
Who said that they cared,
But then laughed as you cried,
Beautiful darling,
Don’t think of me.

Because all I ever wanted…
It’s in your eyes, baby, baby.
And love can’t lie.
No.

Greet me with the eyes of a child.
My love is always tellin’ me so.
Heaven is a kiss and a smile.
Just hold on, hold on.
And I won’t let you go, my baby.

I will be your father figure.
Put your tiny hand in mine.
I will be your preacher teacher.
Anything you have in mind, baby.
I will be your father figure.
And I have had enough of crime.
I will be the one who loves you—
So, I am gonna love you—
‘Til the end of time.

I will be your father.
(I will be your…)
I will be your preacher.
(…father)
I will be your father.
I’ll be your daddy, whoa.
I will be the one who loves you
‘Til the end of time.
