“Dastardly pings! Curses, foiled again!”

Everyone else is speculating as to the fate of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. Might as well get my two-cents-worth in. This is assembled from my comments to a post on pw. These remarks assume you've followed the story closely.

One variant of a scenario geoffb linked above might explain the lack of passenger participation (using their cell phones or other devices to attempt to establish post-takeover communications). If induced gradual oxygen deprivation via non-explosive cabin depressurization was employed by one or more hijackers who had oxygen masks, then all the passengers would be conveniently dead soonest. Re-establishing cabin pressurization would allow the hijacker(s) to collect and destroy communication-capable devices.

That variant would also explain the rambling flight patterns between the checkpoints: the pilot furiously searching passengers and their carry-ons for devices.

(The pilot - hijacker(s) disabled the aircraft's telemetry equipment, then diverted it well out of it's intended path; likely to prevent any tracking, or the finding the wreckage and thereby have the good guys working to solve the mystery: whodunnit? Who gets bombed to glass this time?)

But they missed disabling the data pings from the engines or other on-board sources. Perhaps they weren’t aware they even pinged.

My best guess is that the hijacker(s) learned much from the Lockerbie failure.

The Pan Am Flight 103 Lockerbie explosion was intended to take place over the ocean, making wreckage recovery and subsequent identification of the responsible party impossible; but instead, it happened over Scotland. That led to the subsequent bombing of Gaddafi's Libya, and the killing of his daughter. So, lesson learned, that wasn't going to happen again.

If the scenario I postulated above happened, after all devices were rendered inoperable, the jet's fuel near-exhausted, the plane was then pointed straight down and accelerated to eleven. That would account for the the 40,000-foot drop in less than a minute, as was reported by the engines.

Is there a deep trench in the Indian Ocean? That’s where they needs search.

Oh. Sunda Trench...
...is located in the northeastern Indian Ocean, with a length of 2,600 kilometres (8,500,000 ft). The maximum depth of 7,725 metres (25,344 ft) (at 10°19′S, 109°58′E, about 320 km south of Yogyakarta), is the deepest point in the Indian Ocean. The trench stretches from the Lesser Sunda Islands past Java, around the southern coast of Sumatra on to the Andaman islands...
Andaman islands, you say?
The suggestion -- and it's only that at this point -- is based on analysis of radar data revealed Friday by Reuters suggesting that the plane wasn't just blindly flying northwest from Malaysia. Reuters, citing unidentified sources familiar with the investigation, reported that whoever was piloting the vanished jet was following navigational waypoints that would have taken the plane over the Andaman Islands.

The radar data don't show the plane over the Andaman Islands, but only on a known route that would take it there, Reuters cited its sources as saying.
If the hijacker(s) intended to escape the Pan Am Flight 103 - Lockerbie scenario, they would put the plane out of reach of searchers. Deep and forgotten.

“Dastardly pings! Curses, foiled again!”

Iran hardest hit.

Eugene Robinson's triumphalism over "12 Years a Slave"

I left this comment for Mr. Robinson's article that can be found here.

Eugene, people knew already that the United States had this problem 'growing up', and that slavery was an intolerable condition that existed when this nation was founded. During the Civil War, there was considerable blood shed banishing slavery from the USA. Not since that war have Americans shed as much blood for any cause, as was shed for the banishing of slavery. Most of that blood was spilled by whites.

Today, we still have that scar - no, a barely-healed scab. And the picking at it by the Democratic Party's official 'race hustlers' (who, granted, need some way to make a living) doesn't promote a true healing process. Your glowing sense of triumphalism over this film's "uncomfortable truth" and your hope that scholars can dig up even more award-winning historic moments to endlessly parade in our collective faces does nothing but dig at that ugly scab, and serves but to further divide this Republic, at a time when that dividing is increasingly dangerous.

Should we, as a nation, forget about slavery? No. Should we gouge open these scabbed-over wounds forever, going forward, when doing so might perhaps cause yet more bloodshed, for whatever end result you imagine (but fail to even begin to elucidate) is better than simply letting time heal us all?

In these increasingly divisive times, when many people see our nation again rending along racial and political lines (somehow those lines are kept neatly parallel, if not perfectly conjoined), and again perhaps headed towards another, even more deadly Civil War, these scab-diggings you are trumpeting as good and proper are not at all helpful.

Gator's Dockside and Democratic Party Butt-Hurt



Most businesses will simply pass along the cost of ACA - ObamaCare to their customers without pointing out why yet another sudden price increase happened. Pointing out up front that this cost inflation was caused in response to new unfunded mandates and regulations imposed by Big Government (specifically, by the Democratic Party) is a good thing. I applaud Gator's Dockside Inc. for their forthrightness, and for causing a bit of butt-hurt to Democrats.

If more companies do the same thing, there will be more consumers aware of how the odious battering ram known as ACA - ObamaCare causes across-the-board cost increases to all businesses, therefore putting inflationary pressures on our economy, and that these cost increases will be passed along to every consumer.

Not to mention that all of these new costs are coming right at the worst time possible: when our economy, already reeling from a recession that Mr. Obama cannot seem to help end, is further bludgeoned by his and his Party's decision to cram more nonessential and not-Constitutionally-mandated government regulations and their associated costs down everyone's throats.

Democrats, especially you far-Left "progressives" who now run the once-proud Democratic Party, never do consider the lack of sustainability that will ultimately deny you your Nirvana; the seeking of some heaven-on-earth degree of sustenance and nurturing that fuels your political desires and gives you votes from the unthinking masses that you 'Community Organize' with the lure of 'free' goods and services paid for by Someone Else.

If - no, when - this economy does collapse, you certainly will be held responsible for it, and here's hoping you'll find some nice hole to crawl into, for to hide your miserable faces.

Those pesky Climate Change Deniers? Why, you ask?

Let's just say for kicks and giggles that the Earth's climate is irrevocably warming; then go a great leap further and allow that it's because we humans have burned fossil fuels that've been in locked storage for millions of years (thanks, unknown benefactors!). We are warming up nicely, over time.

Then comes along, just in time to take advantage of this sudden and rather helpful climate change, the denizens of the far-Left. That same order of leftists and Marxists who's ideological beliefs have spawned the worst mass-murderers in human history; men who, when allowed to gain control of nations and fates, have killed more millions of humans than any other ideologically-driven killers in our brief but bloody history (yes, that would be Josef Stalin and Mao Tse-Tung: both leftists, Marxists).

So, after some meek and studious scientists figure out that we, using ever-advancing technology and enjoying increasingly comfortable lifestyles that have lofted our human race to pinnacles never before seen or imagined, are causing Global Planetary Warming.

Next thing we see is that these same brilliant scientists allow a failed, far-Left, head-swollen, non-scientist politician, the venerable Al Gore, to front their work to an incredulous world.

And, somehow, these brilliant scientists blissfully expected everyone to quieten to a hush and listen to sad-sack, failed, far-Left politician Al Gore and his cabin-boy crew of fellow traveler far-Leftists and enviro-mental nut cases, then meekly turn over control of the destiny of Planet Earth and every living human's future to them? Seriously?

Al Gore and his disciples, both the enviro-whackos and a smaller, more-pale group of culti-religio- 'scientists', are barely-checked misanthropes who would all be tickled pink to see a third to a half (or more) of Earth's human population die (or be killed) off, so as to chill their planet.

Listen closely! you can just hear them muttering.. 'Our planet's severe overpopulation of retched humans is the root cause of this befouling Climate Change; their incessant breeding and burning is what's causing our Mother Earth's fever, and so! they must be dealt with! And the sooner, the better!'

Yes, I think it'd be a grand idea to give over control of our destiny to a group of far-Left control freaks who not-so-subtly hate the human race; and who, if given control, would spawn a New World Order of murderous science-dictators to fix all the planet's problems, toot suite.

What could possibly go wrong ?

Fiscal Conservatives, heads up: Why Democrats Hate Christians

Throughout human history, traditionally the first place a person would go for help, sustenance, safety and shelter was with one's family and close community, not Government. Family always came first, then community. Faith-based churches were the bedrock of early communities.

Churches and religion are under assault by the Left, by today's Democrats. Just look around you.

Today's new Democrats prefer and endorse Atheism, because atheists are more easily amenable to State controls. Faith-based churches are (were) made up of groups of people not giving first allegiance to State, but to God; that route to sustenance and safety must be denied and replaced, as Statists progressively move FORWARD.

Our newly far-Democrats (Leftists, Statists, Progressives) assault faith-based religions and churches, and most especially target and hate Christian churches, so as to break up these communities in order to make more people seek State for sustenance.

Without faith in God, without churches and communities, State becomes by default the atheists' and society's first and only source for safety and sustenance.

"Without souls, without God, humans are but animals."

We are all now seen as animals, viewed by these Government-first Statists as needing their Animal Husbandry.

We are needing STATE to provide the things most people would turn to family and faith to provide.

So, fiscal Conservatives, the next time you hear Democrats assaulting faith and religion, doesn't matter if you yourself are agnostic or atheist; know this: their intent is to become our only God.

You should, no matter what belief or lack thereof you personally have, oppose the assault on other people's faiths and religions. Because without people having recourse to churches and faith-based communities, there is only ONE provider left: Big State, Big Government.

"REVENGE!", saith Hillary Clinton

"REVENGE", saith Hillary Clinton, and the DC Beltway clown show clan collectively shits a pantload.

This lady Hillary Clinton seemingly has a black hole of pure spite cored in her icy heart. Who (beside husband Bill) knew?

According to documents released (much to the chagrin of most Democrats, who want to see this "lady" installed as U.S. President just as soon as they can be rid of the "clown disaster" who has, at this junct-ure, served his purpose, and is now but a drag, a bore, an overreaching, tyrannous "I've got a pen and a PHONE!" banana-Republic-leader wannabe) is safely upchucked to the United Nations, where his massive ego, set free once again, will allow him to continue his dream of CHANGE for ALL; and RULE the WORLD!).

Hillary Clinton's close friend and longtime personal adviser Diane Blair, a political science professor hanging at the University of Arkansas, died, and left an archive of documents donated to the University. Before Hillary and her minions could feed them to shredders, this was unearthed...
Fayetteville, Arkansas (CNN) - Shortly before Hillary Clinton’s effort to pass health care reform died in the summer of 1994, the first lady asked a close friend and confidant for advice on “how best to preserve her general memories of the administration and of health care in particular.”
When asked why, according to the friend’s June 20, 1994, diary entry, Clinton said,
“Revenge.”
Two Fugly Chicks and a Strutting Cock:
Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Diane Blair, 1979
Seems Hillary was overly annoyed that her healthcare program (for the PEOPLE!) went down in flames. And, likely, that her cock Bill was screwing everything that moved, which was fine with her, remember, but she hate-resented anyone else who publicly disapproved of such antics and had nerve enough to say so. Senator Claire McCaskill (D, Missouri) earned the lady's wrath...
WASHINGTON, Jan. 13 (UPI) -- Hillary Clinton and Sen. Claire McCaskill once had such hate the Missouri Democrat said she feared being in an elevator with the former first lady, a book says.

"I really don't want to be in an elevator alone with her," McCaskill told a friend in remarks quoted in the forthcoming "HRC: State Secrets and the Rebirth of Hillary Clinton."

The tension between the two Democrats came after McCaskill said on NBC's "Meet the Press" while she was running for election that former President Bill Clinton was "a great leader, but I don't want my daughter near him,"
What sane woman would want her daughter near known sexual predator Bill Clinton?

So, revenge. What else could a lady do?


Hillary Clinton becomes just the latest, and to date the most prominent, poster child for political revenge.

Already the poster child for Uncaring Abandonment: Benghazi. For leaving her charge, Ambassador Christopher Stevens and his staff forgotten, unprotected and unsecured in an isolated Embassy on the anniversary of 9/11/2001, when known al Qaeda activity was peaking nearby, and having warnings of same ahead of time; then remarking soon after weeks of lying and deceiving as best as she and her indifferent golf-pro Boss could (some video-game-maker pissed off ALL the MUSLIMS!),

"What DIFFERENCE, at this point, does it MAKE!" how these Americans died.



Nice lady, this Hillary Rodham Rotten Clinton.

This spiteful woman doesn't deserve to be the President of the United States. Too much evil lurks in that icy cold heart.

Instead of becoming the first (failed) female President, Lady Hillary, be content that I made for you this poster. And, fittingly, fitted with an Alfred Hitchcock quote..



Happy Valentine's Day, Lady Hillary Clinton~!

Hope Bill remembers to send you flowers.

Or, more likely, he'll send Huma Weiner instead.


#Caring!

RE: Woody Allen

IF Woody Allen is telling the truth (seemingly he is professionally corroborated) THEN Mia Farrow is the real monster here.

IF NOT, then Woody Allen is not worth the air he's breathing.

I do not like Woody Allen. He's the antithesis of a strong, rugged man; he's an exemplar Beta Male, a textbook Metrosexual; a whiny Leftist. He doesn't get any passes from me because he's an award-winning actor, producer, whatever he's done that I consider unwatchable.

What really turned me off from considering his body of work was his affair, then marriage, to Soon-Yi. That was a despicable, morally reprehensible thing to do.

That affair lends credence to Dylan Farrow's tale.

But if this is a case of Mia Farrow playing the role of psycho divorcee (and there's plenty of those to go around), and molding Dylan Farrow over these years with hateful manipulations, then Woody Allen gets a smidgeon of sympathy from me.

But like a grain of salt on an industrial floor scale, my smidgeon of sympathy barely registers.

Atheism, Democrats, Science, Religion

There was a Creation vs. Evolution Science Debate a few nights ago, featuring a fellow named Ham, a young-Earth Creationist, versus a scientist, Nye. I missed the thing, but I'm a scientific sort who realizes the young-Earth Creationist viewpoint is hands-down absurd.

I'm not an atheist either; I believe that humans have souls, and that our souls are not always locked into our from-dust-to-dust, temporarily alive carcasses. There is purpose to our lives, if we can discover it.

Because I'm not an atheist doesn't mean that any particular religion, especially a religion that a group of humans 'run' for fun or profit or control, is right or wrong, or for me. But as a group, religions generally serve a purpose: religious beliefs tend to make people better, more moral humans, and attune them to their own souls, and in many cases help them find their purpose.

So, there was this Creationism vs. Science Evolution debate folly, with two hardened skeptics of each sect trading conjectures. That's a Small Picture, folks.

Look past the Creationism vs. Science debate, at the bigger picture.

Democrats encourage atheism. Atheism is an unspoken but important Democratic Party plank.

As yourself why leftists generally, and especially our 'new' far-left Democrats, prefer people to be atheists? Why do Democrats seek to push religion out, to deny God in public places; to, every chance they get, lash out and mock citizens who profess a faith?

Because leftists always desire to fill the void created when humans who have no religious belief or God in their heads seek guidance. Leftists rush to fill that void with their own 'teachings', to fill the empty Godhead with their own machinations.

Humans who believe they've no souls are easily controlled by those who wield 'official' power; by the Cult of Government. And our new, far-left Democrats always desire to control more and more of every little thing people do, by government dictum.

Without souls, humans are but animals. Leftist Democrats realize this, and so seek to push religion and God out of the way, so as to create a nation of atheists. With religion and God banished to the sidelines, dismissed as folly, Democrats inject in that void their own cult of faith, their own 'religion', Big Government.

Let's be honest: a Big Government controlling a population is but 'Animal Husbandry'.

Democrats, and most Republicans running the elitist wing of the GOP, seek ever-bigger Government because they desire to CONTROL citizens. Every time one looks at the flood of new laws passed every year, at what new benefits or entitlements are proffered by Government, you see the animal husbandry in action.

People without faith, who have found no purpose, have no God or faith or religion, are groomed to move along in placid acceptance of the government's dole of laws and sustenance. These humans are witlessly controlled by the tools of government and industry. In which they have Faith.

Keep those food bowls filled, Democrats, Republicans. Keep the soulless human sheeple you've created and prefer moving along. There's lots of shearing needs be done.

Wendy Davis lied under Oath in a Federal Court? Who knew?

Most certainly!

Back last August, I posted about the Democrats' newly-minted hero, Texas legislator Wendy Davis, who rose to prominence by fighting for more and more aborted fetuses, under the guise of 'Women's Rights'.

Here's that post, re-posted below, because there's nothing much more to say. Wendy Davis is as heinous a person who lives in America today, building her reputation by supporting abortion.

Other than the Democrats ARE the Party built by, on, and for death, and the fear of death.

Hey Democrats! Listen up!

"Sooner or later everyone sits down to a banquet of consequences." - Robert Louis Stevenson

More on that later. For now, reprise!



Eric Erickson, FOX News contributor and RedState blogger, tweeted yesterday that Wendy Davis (that Texas State Representative who filibustered for hours to push for very-late-term abortion rights...a measure that eventually was defeated, but she became a Lefty HERO of the CAUSES! for it) was 'Abortion Barbie'.

Hilarity ensues!

Abortions are the Democratic Party's sweetmeats. 'Barbie" is considered a hideous, misyoginist term of HATE!. So, 'Abortion Barbie' applied to "Hero and Mystical Warrior for Wymen's Rights to KILL Fetuses Despite Whatever their Stage of Development" Wendy Davis locks them up!

Will ever a better moniker surface for a politician who achieves fame and fortune for advancing such a hideous practice?

Prosa pulchra indeed! Well played, Eric Erickson.

Oh, and Kermit Gosnell approves...
