Nixon to Stenger: We Can Bluff Without You

Fresh news on one of the other serials.

St. Louis County won’t be need to pretend to commit to St. Louis’s PR chessboard bluff.  The state and St. Louis City will be able to make that pretense by themselves.

That all this is a PR chessboard bluff such that any and all anger for the Rams moving back to L.A. spills onto Kroenke’s head is now becoming more and more the consensus about these plans nationally and outside of St. Louis.  And that St. Louis County won’t be needed means that it makes it that much harder for the financing to come together, which is more proof that this is all vaporware.





No G and No B

Jefferson City

I was mostly wrong but a little bit right with what I wrote in this space yesterday.

P-D:

Spence Jackson, spokesman for the late state Auditor Tom Schweich, apparently believed he would face unemployment in the wake of his boss’ suicide last month. And that, according to a note Jackson left, was the reason he took his own life Friday.

Jackson left a suicide note saying he couldn’t take “being unemployed again,” before shooting and killing himself Friday, Jefferson City police said Tuesday.

Me, yesterday:

Jobs with or for politicians are transitory, (his resume includes Kit Bond and Matt Blunt along with Schweich), and while Jackson was plugged in enough such that he probably would have never been wanting for a job, it probably did not behoove him actually to buy a house in Jeff City.  Some great opportunity comes along, and he’d have to move to St. Louis or Kansas City or Washington, D.C., and it’s lot easier to leave an apartment than it is to leave an owned house.

I was right about the transitory part, but apparently wrong about his ability to find new work easily after losing the old work.  But still right that it was the reason why he only lived in a cookie cutter apartment.  Employment and therefore paychecks for him was catch as catch can, and fatten up for the lean times.

However, it means that all that gay and bi gossip that’s been circulating underground should stay underground, because it’s baseless.  It also means that John Danforth is off the hook in my mind’s eye insofar as this matter goes, because there was nothing for him to cover up.

This would seem to breathe life again into the Great Mythical Anti-Semitic Whisper Campaign of 2015, because that is supposedly what caused Schweich to commit suicide, and that meant that Schweich was no longer auditor and eventually his media director would be out of a job.  All that means for me is that I’m back to square one, and that is, Schweich committed suicide because he was mentally unstable (Danforth admitted in his farce eulogy that Schweich had a temperament unfit for high level electoral politics), and not for anyone that anybody said in passing.  It also means that Danforth latched onto the Great Mythical Anti-Semitic Whisper Campaign of 2015, and the P-D poodled right along, because Danforth was traumatized by his friend and protege committing suicide.

Jefferson City

Tom Schweich on February 26.

Spence Jackson on March 29.

Me, back on March 7:

A fellow slightly more cynical than myself might speculate that the Danforth/P-D driven hoopla about the Great Mythical Anti-Semitic Whispering Campaign of 2015 is motivated for reasons beyond purely the ideological and personal (in Danforth’s case) and tribal (in the P-D’s case).  All this noise is usually meant to distract us from something.

The slightly more cynical version of myself would like to know what this “something” is.

I’m going to stalk and capture the wild taboo here:

Gay or Bisexual.

Yes, this gossip has been subterranean ever since February 26, and has in no way broken the media blood-brain barrier.  I never bought it up in this space or even really given it much thought in the space between my ears because I thought it was way too wild and tinfoiley.  But when you have the Auditor and then his media director both knocking themselves off within little more than a month, that’s a cluster, and it points to them wanting not to be around to face embarrassing allegations.

If what I’m thinking turns out to be reality, then I think Danforth started this Great Mythical Anti-Semitic Whisper Campaign of 2015 gossip as a diversion, knowing the P-D and Star would bite HL&S, with the knowledge that John Hancock actually did say something to someone about Schweich being Jewish as the plausible proof.

Jewish would not have hurt Schweich or any of his senior people in this state even if he was or any of them were.  Gay or Bi would have.

And if I’m right about this, then John Danforth is even more evil and diabolical than I thought, for this means he not only turned his friend’s and protege’s funeral into a Wellstone memorial style farce, it also means he was deliberately lying through his teeth the whole time while delivering the eulogy.

Now I’m hearing reports that Jackson left a note before he offed himself.  No official word, and the grapevine isn’t yielding anything.

Note:  I have this and all the other Tom Schweich posts since February 26 tagged as Schweichgate, as you can see below.

UPDATE 9:30 PM

I’m not writing anything into the fact that Jackson was 44 years old and lived by himself in a cookie cutter apartment in a cookie cutter apartment complex a bit southwest of the Capitol.  Jobs with or for politicians are transitory, (his resume includes Kit Bond and Matt Blunt along with Schweich), and while Jackson was plugged in enough such that he probably would have never been wanting for a job, it probably did not behoove him actually to buy a house in Jeff City.  Some great opportunity comes along, and he’d have to move to St. Louis or Kansas City or Washington, D.C., and it’s lot easier to leave an apartment than it is to leave an owned house.  Second, I’m 38 tomorrow and I live by myself in a cookie cutter apartment in a cookie cutter apartment complex in Ballwin, and I’m not gay.  It’s just that Mrs. Right hasn’t come around yet.

UPDATE 3/31

Now the new party line is that Jackson was a copycat suicide of Schweich.  That meme preserves the ability to blame the Great Mythical Anti-Semitic Whisper Campaign of 2015 for the whole thing.

You say “felony,” I say “prank.”

Of course, since littering is a felony, and delivering pizzas is a capital crime, why the hell not?

And also, black people are really mentally weak.  They experience trauma just by seeing cotton balls and nooses.  And they surrender like punks to the kind of white people that couldn’t scare a fly whenever the hipsters come a’gentrifyin’.  If we crackers ever really get our act together, they’re so screwed.





Sunday Wrap-Up

29 03 2015

LOCAL AND REGIONAL

Ferguson:  Back to normal.

Bell Curve City, comes through again.  Like champs.

*  They’ve got to be kidding.  Yeah, there are some slick mags that I expect this from.  But Fortune?  Or is that Misfortune?

What, they don’t want any preening race lectures in Des Peres?  Incidentally, Des Peres has two, count ‘em, two, of another (in)famous chain, that being Chick-fil-A, one inside West County Mall and another freestanding one east of the mall.  I have a CfA story below; stay tuned.

*  St. Louis is so old (remember, 250th birthday last year) that it is now possible to do archaeology just based on our European/white history.

*  Counterfeit money, long a Murphysboro pastime, has now spread one town to the west.

Of course.  They’re kids.  Kids are just…kids.  My best friend from about that age until I changed schools in the fourth grade was black, and just as nerdy as I was.  We talk maybe once every few years, but we just can’t be friends like we used to back in second through fourth grade, because we’ve become different people.  And in this case, my race-obsessed self is saying that race is not relevant to this matter.  Incidentally, he is the part owner of a commercial HVAC business in town these days.

*  Althoff Catholic HS of Belleville was the state runner up in basketball in their enrollment class.  They lost to St. Joseph’s of Westchester, west suburban Cook County.  That’s one of the schools featured in a relatively famous documentary, Hoop Dreams.  One of the two main subjects of that documentary wound up going to Mineral Area CC down in Farmington for his his first two years of college ball.  Anyway, as I was thumbing through this photo gallery, I found out that Gene Pingatore, who was St. Joe’s basketball head coach during the time this documentary was being made (1987-1991) is still their head coach.  He’s been around so long, that I wouldn’t be surprised to find out that he coached Jesus Christ himself when he played high school hoops.

12 years old, he was going on 16.

“What happens when schools send 12-year olds completely off the grid?”  Answer:  The schools are doing 12-year olds a big favor.

That’s what we do.  Emmanuel Goldstein, Darren Wilson, Haven Monahan, Great White Defendant, George Zimmerman, John Hancock, Duke Lacrosse, Det. Pagones, Fox News Channel.  The fifth and fourth last lines are money.

IMMIGRATION

Why is this a surprise?  This is why Terry McAuliffe wanted to be Governor of Virginia so badly, and more specifically, why the Clintons wanted him to be Governor so badly.  I’m sure his being Governor will help HRC in her Presidential campaign, both during primary season and if she makes it that far general seasons.

NATIONAL

Get ready for the chimpout via pen and phone.

In theory, I don’t see a problem with this.  In practice, it’s going to turn out to be a big clusterfuck.  Because I know who is proposing this and why she is proposing this and who she is thinking will benefit from it.  She’s thinking about a demographic that thinks that food is what comes out of the clown’s head at the 365BellCurve fast feeder.  “Whatchyoo fonna do wif’a karrot, dawg?”

White liberals think that blacks are just like white liberals and would be if they only had more on their EBT cards.  Not to be outdone, white conservatives thinks that blacks are just like white conservatives and would be if only the areas where they lived had lower taxes.

*  Sit down, because this is going to be so shocking that your knees will buckle and give in:

Evangelical Christian Hispanic-Americans attending a Christian college support Ted Cruz for President.

I think the driver here is evangelical Christian, not necessarily Hispanic.

*  If they’re going to use SJW bully tactics against us, then we should use them against them.  But I’m not cheering this story at all, for some reason.  Honestly, what I really want more than anything is for SJW bullying, either them against us or us against them, to go away.

You’d think Duke would learn from racial hoaxes.

This whole nice things versus black people conundrum.

This does not surprise me anymore, being an aficionado of Tommy Sotomayor videos.  But one of the “wimmenz” here is 39 years old.  Hell, that’s older than I am, even counting my odometer rolling up by one on Tuesday, and she’s still out doing fight clubs?  Even if I was ever the fighting type, I wouldn’t be doing it now.

Yeah, they do rock.  And roll, if the last story is any indication.

Also, I was not aware that black women are suffering for a lack of self-esteem.

Bad news, with a silver lining.

And now for some very good news.

INTERNATIONAL

SPLC pops some corks.

MISC STUFF

Easy.  They’ll try to bully and SJW the business world.

*  Yes, I’ve heard the phrase, “an apple a day keeps the doctor away.”  But this is ridiculous.





Do Jewish Women Really Hate Jewish Men That Much?

New York City

There’s not a one of us goy who could get away with writing something like this, even as sarcastic as this is.  Only a Jewish (“–“) woman could.

Feminism:  How Jewish women get revenge on Jewish men for their not marrying Jewish women since…whenever.

 





There Goes the Neighborhood

Brooklyn

Because diversity.

New York Observer:

Brooklyn Councilwoman Laurie Cumbo today said that a number of her constituents “don’t understand” the growing population of Asians moving into public housing units in her district.

Ms. Cumbo told Shola Olatoye, Chairwoman and Chief Executive Officer of the New York City Housing Authority, at a hearing of the council’s public housing committee that residents in her district are perplexed that so many non-English speaking immigrants are moving into certain developments. The African-American Councilwoman stressed that she appreciates the rich cultural heritage Asians bring, but that many people wonder why the new arrivals are being allowed in to the apparent exclusion of others.

(snip)

Ms. Cumbo’s district includes neighborhoods that were formerly African-American strongholds, but have undergone widespread gentrification. In the 1980s and 1990s, there was considerable tension between black residents and Asian-American store owners.

Additionally, as a Councilwoman-elect in 2013, Ms. Cumbo reacted to the “knockout game” phenomenon—in which groups of mostly black youth were accused of attacking Orthodox Jews and other whites—by noting on Facebook that many African-Americans “sense that Jewish success is not also their success.”

And I thought I was just joking when…
