All the weird, angry people…

Posted in Crazy Weapons, WhiteManistan at 12:48 pm by George Smith

Steve at Secrecy blog alerted me to Sunday’s episode of The Simpson’s, Homer Goes to Prep School, which pillories a subject familiar to blog readers. In it Homer Simpson goes to the local bar where he runs into a kook who asks if he’s ready for a world gone WROL, Without the Rule of Law. […]

Cult of EMP Crazy recedes

Posted in Crazy Weapons, Culture of Lickspittle, Psychopath & Sociopath, WhiteManistan at 3:22 pm by George Smith

When Roscoe Bartlett, mainstay of the Cult of Electromagnetic Pulse Crazy, had his House career ended in the November election it dealt a heavy blow to the lobbying group. With Newt Gingrich being run off the national stage yet again, two of its most vigorous personalities were cut down. Although Bartlett never got any legislation […]

Script advisor to Red Dawn

Posted in Crazy Weapons at 3:28 pm by George Smith

The remake of Red Dawn was laughed out of town. On Metacritic it was a well into the red 32. “The film adopts a fringe conspiracy theory that has long been pushed by a small, right-wing coalition led by Newt Gingrich: that terrorists or a rogue state could devastate America with an electro-magnetic pulse, or […]

Christmas presents

Posted in Crazy Weapons at 2:03 pm by George Smith

“The EMP pulser with a special Antenna is capable of shutting down a computer at a distance of 15 meters,” it reads. Thirty four thousand dollars, cheap. But my favorites are the $1400 can crusher and the $350 fish stunner. Ever since Rep. Roscoe Bartlett was retired in November a whole bunch of fun has […]

Nugent & the Obamaphone

Posted in Psychopath & Sociopath, Ted Nugent at 9:20 am by George Smith

The New Confederacy lost, Ted. But you’ll always have Waco. Famous last words, from this summer just prior to Nugent getting a visit from the US Secret Service: If Barack Obama becomes the President in November again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year. From today’s WaTimes (you really […]

Posted in Crazy Weapons, Extremism at 1:19 pm by George Smith

Maryland’s notorious kook, House Republican Roscoe Bartlett, is nearing what appears to be the end of his political career as head of the Cult of Electromagnetic Pulse Crazy lobby.

The Bomb Iran lobby

Posted in Crazy Weapons, Extremism at 2:49 pm by George Smith

If they could personally touch off a war with Iran before the election, they would. From the Cult of Electromagnetic Pulse Crazy, and the anti-shariah law/get Huma Abedin crew, this — timed for Netanyahu’s “red line” speech at the UN. It’s useful to see how the Cult is doing its best to start another war […]

Pete and Re-Pete were in a boat …

Posted in Crazy Weapons, Extremism at 9:07 am by George Smith

Pete fell out and who was left? Cult of Electromagnetic Pulse Crazy Peter Pry, at the right-wing FrontPage magazine, on EMP doom and his group of lobbyists trying to save us from it: Peter Pry: Our Task Force is an experiment in returning to an earlier era, when the private sector played a much bigger […]

Two days ago, Secrecy blog published a report by the JASONs, a group of eminent scientists regularly tasked with providing analysis and conclusion on potential threats for the US government.

Cult of EMP Crazy: End Times-ism

Posted in Crazy Weapons, Culture of Lickspittle, Extremism at 11:17 am by George Smith

Because of Newt Gingrich’s momentary popularity — I noticed he’s the cover of Newsweek which must surely mean the bubble’s about to burst — many more people have been familiarized with the mythology of electromagnetic pulse doom. Right now, it’s not just for the far right GOP missile defense/bomb Iran lobby anymore. And although Gingrich […]
