Flotsam and Jetsam - Happy "Trangender Day of Visibility" from the White House

Highly visible transgenders 
Yeah, really. Hat Hair's Dave Strom, Biden Just Declared Easter Sunday 'Transgender Day of Visibility'. Don't Ever Think They Don't Hate You: White House Designates Easter Sunday as 'Transgender Day of Visibility' Oilfield Rando@Oilfield_Rando "I thought it was fake. I hoped it was fake. I went to the White House official site praying it would be fake. Newp. It’s real. Realize where we are." At Twitchy, Brian Stelter Clears Up Connection Between White House and Trans Day of Visibility. Just a coincidence. Matt Walsh@MattWalshBlog "The excuse will be that “Transgender Day of Visibility” is a fixed “holiday” that always falls on March 31. The problem with that excuse is that the president does not need to issue any proclamation recognizing it and no president has recognized it until Biden two years ago. He may not decide the date for this fake bullshit holiday but he does decide to officially proclaim it." From Fox, Religious-themed designs banned from White House Easter egg art contest "Children's egg designs are part of annual White House Easter Egg Roll traditions." Ian Jaeger@IanJaeger29, "BREAKING: Trump Press Secretary Karoline Leavitt releases a statement about the Biden Administration and Easter. Karoline Leavitt writes, We call on Joe Biden’s campaign and the White House to issue an apology to the millions of Catholics and Christians across America who believe tomorrow is for one celebration only the resurrection of Jesus Christ." Becca Lower at RedState, Team Trump Hops to It, Issues Scalding Reaction to Biden WH Proclamation on Transgender Visibility Day. At The Other McCain, 'Sissypuss' heard that Trans. Sec. Buttigieg Announces $500M Pronoun Retooling Effort. I think it's a parody, but it's so hard to tell these days.

So now we know what it takes for an illegal alien to get arrested. Embarrass the administration. Bill Melugin@BillMelugin_ "EXCLUSIVE: We embedded with a team of elite Boston based ICE deportation officers as they arrested four alleged child rapists & a violent MS-13 gang member in a single morning. ICE says their detainer requests on all of these illegal aliens weren’t honored by local jurisdictions due to sanctuary policies in Massachusetts. ICE tells me those policies allow illegal aliens charged or convicted with heinous crimes to roam the streets after release without any notice, and make their job more dangerous because they have to find & arrest aliens charged or convicted with aggravated felonies on the streets, instead of having them handed over in a safe environment like a jail. . . "

But that mine happens to be located inside the Baaj Nwaavjo I’tah Kukv National Monument. Awkwardly, that monument was recognized and designated just last year by none other than President Joe Biden. The Havasupai Tribal Council has registered multiple complaints, saying that this operation is taking place on lands they consider sacred. The same area is also revered by the Hopi, Navajo, and Zuni people. Their calls have thus far gone unanswered." Sounds like he is actually doing something right.

On Monday, after the Scarborough crowd opened the 6 a.m. hour with their own admonishment of the McDaniel hire, it became clear that the next 18 hours were going to be devastating for NBC. Early in the afternoon, I was notified that Nicolle Wallace and others intended to speak out that night, and that it was going to be an onslaught. (Wallace, a former Bush II aide, also used MSNBC to outrun some political baggage…) Around that time, Stephen Labaton, the executive vice president of communications for NBC News, and the top P.R. aide to Conde, reached out to McDaniel directly to try to reassure her that Psaki and other former political officials had faced scrutiny when they’d joined NBC, and that it might blow over. According to a source familiar with the discussion, he also told McDaniel that the MSNBC hosts were being “fucking insane.”  . . .

Happy Easter!

The City of Albuquerque Animal Welfare Department is pausing rabbit adoptions at all city shelters until Tuesday because of Easter.

AWD officials are reminding families that a rabbit is more than just a one-week commitment. They say rabbits need as much attention as a cat or a dog, as pet rabbits can live for as long as 8-12 years.

If you want to add a rabbit as a long-term family member, officials say to contact the New Mexico House Rabbit Society to find the right rabbit. You can go to their website or call 505-435-9916.

Beach Report 3/30/24

It wasn't quite as nice as yesterday, but good enough. About 50 F, overcast, with a 10 kt SSW breeze.
I hit the low tide, which was not quite as low as yesterday, but I still made it up to the new big slide.
I did pretty good for shark's teeth, 18 including this nice Snaggletooth I spotted sliding back and forth in the surf. I'm lucky the last wave didn't take it out and drop it over the shelf. Also, not the usual one, but two crab claws!

Flotsam and Jetsam - Could Tugs have Saved the Key Bridge?

Recovery operations at the Key Bridge have begun, a large cranes have been moved into place to start cutting up and removing the wreckage. From the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 03.29.24 (Evening Edition) This Ain’t Hell, Army Corps of Engineers to Baltimore Recovery, MJTruthUltra @MJTruthUltra MUST READ UPDATE: Baltimore Bridge Collapse The Cargo Ships BLACK BOX Reveals the VDR Sensor Data “Ceased” Recording for 2 Minutes Prior to Impact NTSB investigator Marcel Muise held a press conference to reveal the data on the DALI’s black box, also known as the Voyage Data Recorder (VDR). . . " Yeah, but don't go all tinfoil hat about it. The VDR was dependent on ships power, which was lost prior to impact. It's a stupid setup, but it's not unusual. AP wonders Could tugboats have helped avert the bridge collapse tragedy in Baltimore?. Probably. But then the navigation is dependent on 2 or more other engines subject to failure. You pays your money and takes your chance. At the Balmer Sun, ‘A cascade of failures’ contributed to rare, catastrophic Key Bridge collapse. That's usually why ships sink and planes crash. At Althouse, "But state officials worried about terrorism had focused on bombs and bad guys in small boats, not an errant 95,000-gross-ton container ship...."  "From "Officials studied Baltimore bridge risks but didn’t prepare for ship strike" (WaPo). They knew the problem. "It never occurred to anybody"... please. The necessary precaution, the bridge having the limitations they knew it had, was to ban ships that size from passing there. That's how I see it, as a layperson. Prove me wrong." Well, without the port, there would be no Baltimore, at least as we know it. And ships evolved. Ship happens, get over it. From the Balmer Sun assurances that Authorities say cargo on ship that downed Key Bridge poses ‘no immediate threat to the environment’ but at the Balmer Banner, Environmental concerns loom in aftermath of the Key Bridge collapse. Well, yeah, some stuff is likely to leak, and they're going to stir up a lot of mud in the process of clearing the debris. It's Baltimore Harbor, and a little pollution is just dilution.

"In 2023, a grand jury in Washington, D.C., heard evidence from witnesses—including Trump's attorney, Evan Corcoran—while considering whether charges should be brought against the former president and others for hoarding classified documents. However, Trump and his co-accused were later indicted in Florida and, under federal rules, the grand jury files were transferred on Monday to Trump-appointed judge, Aileen Cannon's court."

Rule 5 Saturday - Lele Pons

This week's Rule 5 paragon of feminine beauty is Lele Pons
Eleonora "Lele" Pons Maronese  born 25 June 1996) is a Venezuelan and American YouTuber, actress and singer.

Pons came to prominence on Vine before the platform was shut down in 2016 where she was the most followed woman and the third most followed viner with 11.5 million followers. She then expanded into creating comedy sketches for YouTube, where she has over 18 million subscribers as of August 2023. She has since acted in film, television, and music videos; released her own music; and co-authored a novel. She currently stars in The Secret Life of Lele Pons, a YouTube Original docuseries providing a look at her personal life, and hosts a podcast on Spotify called Best Kept Secrets with Lele Pons.

Pons was born in Caracas, the daughter of pediatrician Anna Maronese Pivetta and architect Luis Guillermo Pons Mendoza. When she was a child, her parents separated after her father realized that he was gay. She is of Spanish and Italian descent, and is the niece of Puerto Rican singer Chayanne.  She moved to the U.S. at the age of five and was raised in Miami. She graduated from Miami Country Day School in 2015 and moved to Los Angeles. She has said that she had trouble making friends in high school and would thus "get hurt to make them laugh". She has also described being bullied in high school: "I'm not like the cool girls—I'm the other girl. The one that's basically a nerd, but proud of that." 

On Instagram she admitted to getting nose job, providing this before and after comparison. I think she might have over sharpened it, but it looks like good work.
Pons appeared in the first episode of MTV's horror TV series, Scream, in which she was the season's first victim of Ghostface. She has starred in a number of music videos, including "Havana" by Camila Cabello, and "Downtown" by Anitta and J Balvin.  In May 2018, Pons released her debut single, a Spanish-language duet with Matt Hunter titled "Dicen". The YouTube music video amassed 10 million views in just four days. Pons has also had success in modelling.

Beach Report 3/29/24

A fine, sunny March day, after a couple days of rain. It was about 55, a bit breezy from the NW, and the tide was down to a reasonable  level after a couple of days of very high tides.

From the Signal, Dave Ditch explains How to Repair the Key Bridge Without Breaking the Bank "First, all officials must be clear that the cost of rebuilding should mostly or entirely fall on the owners and operators of the ship, even if the incident was purely accidental. While litigation on such an important matter could take time to resolve, taxpayers shouldn’t be responsible for the cost of a privately caused disaster. . . .Rather than simply adding to the long-term debt, Congress has many options to repurpose funds from the 2021 bill, including:

  • Canceling the administration’s $3.1 billion grant to California’s wildly dysfunctional high-speed rail project.
  • Reducing federal spending on programs for low-priority, local-only infrastructure such as hiking trails, bike paths, and sidewalks.
  • Pulling forward highway and bridge funds from allocations for 2025 and 2026 so they are available for the project starting in 2024.

Oregon, My Oregon

Aimee Kotek Wilson and Tina Kotek
Andrea Widburg at Am Think, Oregon governor’s same-sex partner claims to be a mentally ill alcoholic

Lots of people have untidy personal lives, but data show that same-sex couples have a higher percentage of issues leading to personal problems (substance abuse, spousal abuse, mental illness, etc.). That’s certainly the case with Oregon’s lesbian governor, Tina Kotek. It recently came to light that Kotek’s “wife,”* Aimee Kotek Wilson, has been acting as a stand-in for Kotek, complete with a taxpayer-funded security detail and that Kotek is spending more taxpayer money to expand Kotek Wilson’s role. While this little scandal rolls, and perhaps to distract from it, Kotek Wilson announced on Tuesday that she’s a recovering alcoholic with an unidentified mental illness.

In 2022, Oregon elected Tina Kotek, a very out-and-proud lesbian, as its governor. According to Kotek’s Wikipedia page, she seems to be a very focused politician: She wants denser housing in Oregon and has worked hard to destroy single-family neighborhoods by getting legislation passed to allow fourplexes in formerly spacious, less-populated neighborhoods. (The Democrats did this in California, too.) It’s not a coincidence that suburbs tend to vote Republican.

Forget It Jake, It's Baltimore

Breitbart, Baltimore Mayor Scott: Those Calling Me ‘DEI Mayor’ Don’t Have Courage to Say the ‘N-Word’

Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott said Wednesday on MSNBC’s “The ReidOut” that critics calling him a “DEI mayor” do not “have the courage to say the N-word.”

Discussing the Baltimore bridge collapse, host Joy Reid said, “The most idiotic and racist theories had to do with their newest bogeyman, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion DEI. A Republican congressional candidate in Florida tweeted that, ‘DEI did this.’ And a right-wing blue check account that’s been boosted by Elon Musk in the past just blew straight past the dog whistling tweeting to its 267,000 followers, ‘Baltimore’s DEI mayor commenting on the collapsed Francis Scott Key bridge, it’s going to get so, so much worse. Prepare accordingly.’ The post included a clip of Baltimore’s black mayor, Brandon Scott.”

When asked to respond, Scott said, “I know and we know and you know very well that black men and young black men in particular have been the bogeyman for those who are racist and think that only straight, wealthy white men should have a say in anything. We’ve been the bogeyman for them since the first day they brought us to this country. And what they mean by DEI in my opinion is dually elected incumbent. We know what they want to say but they don’t have the courage to say the N-word. The fact that I don’t believe in their untruthful and wrong ideology and I’m very proud of my heritage and who I am and where I come from, scares them. Because me being at my position means their way of thinking, their way of life of being comfortable while everyone else suffers is going to be a risk. They should be afraid because that’s my purpose in life.”

Be careful, that race card might be overdrawn.  

Flotsam and Jetsam - A Bridge too Far

A quick run around news and commentary on the Key Bridge disaster. Of eight people thought to be lost, two bodies of road workers were found in a pickup truck in 25 ft. of water.  The rest are presumed lost in the tangle of steel and road way on the bottom. Just for the record, I believe it to almost certainly be an accident and not sabotage. Ships get into to problems all the time, this time it just happened to be at a critical point. Poor maintenance, and cutting corners, both by the ship owner and the bridge authorities undoubtedly contributed, but that's the nature of the world. I would hold out only slim hope for conspiracy theorists who think the Russians, the Chinese or the Trump lovers are responsible. Balmer Sun, NTSB: Data consistent with power loss before Key Bridge strike; crew interviews ongoing. Sundance at CTH hosts NTSB Give Update on Baltimore Bridge Collapse, Investigation and Current HAZMAT Concerns for Baltimore Harbor. Short version, we're just not collecting the data, it'll be months before we can say much more, but for now it looks like an accident. Da Wire, 8 People Were On Baltimore Bridge At Time Of Collapse; Ship Issued A Mayday Before Collision: Authorities  Breitbart, No Indication of Terrorism in Baltimore Bridge Collapse, Says FBI, and they just might be playing this one straight. Bob Spencer at Front Page, Tragic Boat Accident in Baltimore — And Yet… "In Old Joe Biden’s America, nothing can be taken for granted."  NewsMax astonished that Ship That Collapsed Baltimore Bridge Was Carrying Hazardous Materials, Officials Say. You don't say? With only 10,000 containers, what are the chances? At Althouse, "The majority of the financial fallout is likely to lay primarily with the insurance industry...." ""Industry experts told FT that insurers could pay out losses for bridge damage, port disruption, and any loss of life. The collapse could drive 'one of the largest claims ever to hit the marine (re)insurance market,' John Miklus, president of the American Institute of Marine Underwriters, told Insurance Business.... The Dali is covered by the Britannia Steam Ship Insurance Association Ltd.... Britannia... told FT it was 'working closely with the ship manager and relevant authorities to establish the facts and to help ensure that this situation is dealt with quickly and professionally.'" It's gonna be a big bill. Charles@charlesbonnerjr "No surprise maritime professionals wanted a tunnel, but the government cut corners and built a bridge, now we suffer the consequences - “just a matter of time”" I have also heard that until recently, tugs stayed with ships until they passed the bridge, but that was cut due to costs. Contributory negligence? Breitbart astonished, Joe Biden: Government Will Pay ‘Entire Cost’ of Rebuilding Baltimore Bridge. Well, it is part of the Interstate Highway system. I'm sure the federal government will be happy to cash any settlement checks, but rebuilding it will be on them. At Da Signal, Distracted By Climate Change?

Maybe the Judge is such a hater because his daughter makes money by working to “Get Trump,” and when he rules against me over and over again, he is making her company, and her, richer and richer.
