Because of the gravity of the news, which will probably mean a flood of new details and developments, and the chances that this will drastically affect Missouri state politics, I have made this a “sticky” post.

Me, April 29, 2017:

Greitens buying in Innsbrook. 

Add this to the fact that he lives in Creve Coeur while his wife lives in the CWE, (and remember she was jacked close to where she lives back during her husband’s transition period), and I’m just waiting for all the gossip about the unconventionality of their marriage to break the blood-brain barrier.

What also helped fuel this gossip was that there was a lot of serious talk that, between the times of Greitens winning the election and being inaugurated, that Sheena Greitens would not be living in the Governor’s Mansion.

Guess what crossed over from the below ground to the above ground tonight, coinciding with the State of the State speech earlier this evening.

This isn’t quite that, but there’s always more time for more to come out.

We also will eventually find out how their buying in Innsbrook relates to the unconventionality of their marriage.


* The bit about the S&M nudie/blackmail isn’t going away so easily, if at all, and will be why Mike Parson should be measuring for drapes right about now.

* There’s now calls for Hawley to investigate.  Especially in this #MeToo climate, he’ll fire all four barrels at Greitens, especially if he thinks he needs to in order to beat Claire in November.

* Then, there’s this.  Though if one wants to think this diminishes the credibility, then why did they want whatever news outlet would run with it to time it to the State of the State?  What real political damage does that cause?

* Gardner is opening a probe.

* John Hancock claims that “party officials didn’t know about the story.”  They didn’t know about this particular story, but believe me, the less than conventional nature of the Greitens marriage has been talked about in the grapevines that Hancock is plugged into since he became a serious candidate.


* According to the ex-husband of the woman Greitens allegedly blackmailed, the FBI has interviewed both him and his ex-wife.  The FBI has not yet confirmed or refuted.


* The woman now says she didn’t want this to come out at all and that the ex-husband betrayed her trust by shopping this story to the local media.


* It is my sense, reading between the lines of the news and things that people are saying,  that Republican members of the General Assembly generally lean on the side of believing the blackmail accusation.

* Now, some of the above are going on record openly with resignation calls.

* It’s getting deeper.  First off, she has to be related to Congressman Blaine Luetkemeyer, but I can’t remember precisely how offhand.  Second, while it’s not proof that the blackmail accusation is true, I think it’s indicative of something.

* And deeper still. It all depends on what the FBI, and maybe the U.S. Attorney, and Kim Gardner, all think. I don’t think that the timing of this and now four General Assembly Republicans calling for his resignation is a coincidence.


* FBI’s St. Louis office confirms an open active investigation.


* The woman’s husband has been asked to testify to the St. Louis City grand jury, according to his lawyer.  Even though Gardner has not yet confirmed that there even is a grand jury.


* Greitens is beefing up his stable of lawyers, and, like this article speculates, I think he’s anticipating the impending need for criminal defense.


* Felony indictment, officially.  From the St. Louis City circuit.  Which made me write this post.

* P-D calls for resignation.  Of course they might be partisan and hypocritical, but you also see here why his political career is shot to hell.  Not so long ago, he has Presidential ambitions.


* The MSM articles in the aftermath of the indictment note that Greitens has always had an alienated and standoffish relationship with General Assembly Republicans, compared to the soon-to-be Governor Mike Parson, who is way more of a quintessential swamp creature.

This may lead you to ask me if I think that this is something of a dog patch deep state hit.  The reasons I highly doubt that the state Republican machinery is behind this are:  (1) I have not heard any gossip that they helped feed the initial allegations to Channel 4, (2) Greitens ideologically lined up with the General Assembly Republicans very well.

The only real rub is that Greitens did what he could during his first year and change as Governor unilaterally to drain the swamp, which had the net effect of making life a lot more boring for the Jefferson City political class.  I can attest to the fact that Jeff City really isn’t a hot or hopping town, and, without lobbyists around to pay for some parties and good times, at least not to the extent that they were before Eric Greitens rode into town, life for the political class in that town while they’re there has suddenly become borderline suicidally boring.

That would point to motive on their part, motive in engineering such a hit.  But I’m not grokking a paper trail or smoking guns.


The first major consequential news about this since the indictment, which probably does quite a bit of damage to Gardner’s case.


Greitens’s lawyers are opting for a bench trial, which means for some reason, they think they’re more likely to get a not guilty verdict from a judge as opposed to a 22nd circuity jury.

This is a “sticky” post.

Since I’ve written many posts since my return to functional coherence in mid-November, any posts about my condition I wrote here upon my return, and also subsequent ones, are buried in the avalanche. So, I’m going to use the opportunity of this sticky post to link to them directly.

Between my return to functional coherence, and the restoration of most of my short term memory in mid-January, for that about two month time period, I was not inherently able to remember most people who I either knew or knew of for about five years or less.

Norm’s post on July 20, the day after the fact, just so you know what precisely happened, in case you don’t already

Norm’s post one month, then two months, then three months, after the fact.  The post summarizing September doesn’t state this directly, but I had a second hospitalization stint in the middle of the month, after which I was moved to what is still to this day as I write this my secret hideout

Best News In Months — Norm’s post on November 13 predicating my return

Hello World (Take Two) — My first post here, that evening, after almost four long months

With Some Yuge Caveats — A long and detailed run down of my condition and my near term prospects, posted not long after that

Missouri’s Loosey Goosey Texting While Driving Laws — About why my assailant will never face criminal charges, and why the law will eventually be changed

From Bugatti to Corvette — Why I’m not doing as well as it seems just from reading my writing here since my return

As I Pursue My Ph.D. in Powerology — How I’m sensing my brain is rewiring itself, after four full months of recovery

Lucky Dominoes — The series of fortunate circumstances that resulted in this not killing me instantly

As if I weren’t having enough problems, fate decided to plop down on me a very serious and frustrating case of the flu in December.

Fifth month of recovery  — Still stuck in purgatory after the fifth full month of recovery

Fourth and Very Long — The first major economic consequence of the accident for me, just after the turn of the year

Fate or Felony, followed up by Like Son Like Father — Karma is just a comforting delusion, but comforting nonetheless.

January Doldrums, Mine Eyes are Telling Another StoryTest Me, Up the Second Step.  The posts in mid-January which foretold and then announced the restoration of most of my short term memory

Four Main Courses and Weirded Out — My serial concerns as of late January

Sixth Month of Recovery — January was a good month

Seventh Month of Recovery — February was mostly hurrying up and waiting, combined with tying together some loose ends and letting go of the past

Crowdsourced Head Shrinks — My psychological problems here in the latter part of my first full year of recovery

Finality — The closure to “Fourth and Very Long”

Me Time — Six months after my last unconsciousness event, I’ve been cleared for that.

One more thing:  If the post starts with a geographical moniker of some sort, it’s me doing the writing.  If it starts with “Guest post by Puggg,” it’s Norm, the best friend anyone could ever have, doing the writing.

Bad News Bear

19 03 2018

Tower Grove East

Sixth Ward alderwoman Christine Ingrassia was ‘jacked by the usual suspects over the weekend.

St. Louis City has 28 members of the Board of Aldermen, (being reduced to 14 starting the first local elections after the release of the 2020 Census data), and if this happens to even one of them, then it goes to show you that the city’s got itself some problems.

And also, don’t even these damned dumb dindus know by now that sail foams can be tracked?

Me Time

19 03 2018

Your Blogmeister’s Secret Hideout

Like I wrote here at the end of last month, if I made it to the middle of this month without experiencing any unconsciousness events, then I will have reached six months since the last time I had any such event without having another.  That’s a medically significant milestone, the most practical consequence for me and everyone surrounding me is that I no longer need to have anyone in my presence at all times, meaning I can be left alone for long stretches.  Even though I can’t truly live alone, and who knows if I’ll ever really be able to do that.

My rehab doctors officially cleared me in that stead today.

My present for reaching this milestone was being brought back to the secret hideout and being left alone for awhile, which I still am now, while everyone else who lives here makes themselves scarce to run errands and take care of business and have fun and this that and the third.

This is the first real extended normal waking hours total peace and quiet and solace I’ve had since my mid-November return to functional coherence.

Ban the Box

18 03 2018


First they applied for a job at a gas station quickie mart, and then they jacked a nearby fast feeder.

Thinking of the requisite “ban the box” joke, I certainly hope their criminal conviction record doesn’t hurt their ability to get the job at the quickie mart.

“…It’s ridiculous and not too bright…” — But it’s typical Bell Curve City.

That’s the Fergaza Strip We Know and Love

18 03 2018


Yep, being all Ferguson-y again.

You might remember this particular Fambly Dolla location.  It’s directly across the street from the Ferguson Market, where, as you know, a certain gentle giant purloined his ultimate cigarillo a little more than three and a half years ago.

“Police were able to locate the victim at an apartment complex.”  That wasn’t as easy as it sounds, because, as you might also remember, the Fergaza Strip is full of apartment farms, the now internationally infamous Canfield Green being just one of them.  Also, why did the cops have to try to find him?  Why didn’t the victim call for help?  As you can read here, he left the scene and that was that for that.  Probably because the victim has outstanding warrants.

That was only the beginning of a very vibrant and diverse Saturday afternoon and night around here.

Make Good

17 03 2018

Charlottesville, Virginia

I’m sure you’ve all heard by now.

I’m just brain damaged enough to think that this is both an advance signal and a make good in advance on the part of the criminal justice system authorities in Charlottesville that they know that James Fields will never be convicted of anything because they have no case against him because they know it was self-defense.  Letting DeAndre Harris off the hook softens what they know is going to be a big “blow.”

Deliverance Country

17 03 2018


Here and here.

What this doesn’t tell you is that the only reason this perfidy bubbled up to the surface is that the girl, who was 11 years old at the time, wound up delivering a baby boy nine months later.  This does tell you that he and the girl are related, but not precisely how.  Probably to protect the girl’s identity, though I’m guessing that they are closely enough related such that the “relationship” would have been a crime even if she was of age.

This also happened in the 100 block of Downing Street in O’Fallon.  Which is a trailer park.

Incest, statutory rape, trailer park.

I better not ever hear another problacktard preening on about Deliverance, ever again.

Wicked Shoah Profiling Trick

17 03 2018


And that’s where I stopped.


You’ll read a lot about European populist and nationalist political parties, but nothing about Muslim and other non-white immigration.


Note:  I’m guessing there might also be a concentration camp photo or two.  Because, yerranazi.
