pitchforks galore in paradise, and kindred if you don't have time to live your life now, when will you? rubber meets the rose, er, road outward and inward boundings in Key West, Birmingham, Alabama, and the great white house

Hoodoo Witch reacted to yesterday's post at this here blog:
Excellent blog today!  Though I suspect that The Lady of Leeds is less than pleased!!!! Truth staring her straight in the face and all.  Ahhhh, the images this provokes!

I replied:

I see lots of pitchforks.


Truck loads.

All different kinds, sizes, shapes, hues, tones,

of pitchforks
Why not?

In her new lawsuit, she claims again that I threatened to kill her with a pitchfork. Do that Hoodoo you know so well ever use pitchfork spells? 

I bet I can imagine hundreds, nay, thousands, of ways to stick a pitchfork through her into that fellow she reminds me of so much, till death do they part, the fellow who don't seem to be too terribly happy about getting elected last year. Did he never hear of be careful what you ask for? Guess not. Guess the pitchfork beauty queen never heard of that, either.

An amiga up Big Pine Key way sent me this hear graphic a few months back, said it kinda reminded her of the Lady of Leeds, and I said it kinda didn't, too, as a pitchfork would not stick all the way through the Lady of Leeds, but would be stopped and stuck midway.
Meanwhile, I keep wondering if that stabbing is photo-shopped, or for real?

I been seriously reevaluating how it's more blessed to give than it is to receive might have caused me to think that meant to give away a lot of money, when what it might mean instead, at least for me, as the money give away sho nuff didn't make me feel blessed, was for me to give away as many pitchforks as possible, prongs first.
What you wanna bet the Lady of Leeds shows this here post to the new judge in the Birmingham lawsuit?

Hee, Haw!

What you wanna bet Donald Trump calls me and sez he's gonna sue me for libel for alleging he is getting it on with the Lady of Leeds?

Sueeee, pig!!!
What do you figure might happen, if a local Birmingham TV station gets a hold of this below after some version of it it gets filed in the Jefferson County Courthouse? 

Extra, Extra!!! Golden Flake heir living on the streets of Key West gets sued again for his inheritance by former Alabama beauty contest winner

Here's a draft of what perhaps might be the many, many sharpies the dream lawyer kept you up the other night telling you all about for my reply to the pitchfork queen's Sue the Shit Outta Sloan for His Inheritance Deux, in Birmingham this time, since that didn't turn out to suit her so good when she did it in Key West earlier this year. 

Read it over, make whatever sharpie suggestions that come to you, and send it back as soon as you can, as time's a wasting, that big needle in the hayride in the sky ride ain't waiting for stragglers.

Stay tuned ....

Meanwhile, it seems perhaps whistle-blowing and journalist protecting their sources are becoming seriously endangered species in red, whit and blue ...

Sessions announces hunt for leakers, says cases have 'exploded'

Barnini Chakraborty

Attorney General Jeff Sessions and other top administration officials lashed out Friday against illegal leaks and issued a stern warning that offenders will be “held accountable,” announcing new efforts to hunt them down.  
“No government can be effective when its members cannot speak in confidence” with other government leaders, Sessions said, referring specifically to the bombshell leak a day earlier of President Trump's conversations with foreign leaders. 
He said referrals of classified leaks from U.S. intelligence agencies have “exploded” this year.
“We are taking a stand,” the attorney general said. “This culture of leaks must stop.”
Session said criminals who have leaked classified information are “being investigated and will be prosecuted.” He added that four people have already been charged with leaking classified material and related counts, and investigations have tripled.
Sessions said he has directed Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and new FBI Director Christopher Wray to oversee all classified leak investigations and actively monitor the progress.
He said a new counterintelligence unit has been created to manage cases, and he has directed the National Security Division and U.S. attorneys to prioritize cases involving unauthorized disclosures.
“The department will not hesitate to bring lawful and appropriate criminal charges against those who abuse the nation’s trust,” he said.
Sessions also had some sharp words for the media, saying he would order a review of the current subpoena policy regarding leaks of classified information and called the publication of such materials as something that places lives "at risk." 
David Boardman, chairman of the Reporters Committee for the Freedom of the Press, fired back. 
"What the attorney general is suggesting is a dangerous threat to the freedom of the American people to know and understand what their leaders are doing, and why," Boardman said in a statement. 
Leak cases have traditionally been difficult to prove and prosecute. In 2015, Attorney General Eric Holder issued new guidelines on obtaining information from members of the media. Sessions said Friday that he’s reviewing the DOJ’s policy on issuing subpoenas to reporters.
Under the Obama administration, federal prosecutors brought charges in nine cases – more than all previous administrations combined.  
Still, it was clear by Sessions’ comments that the Trump administration would go after any leakers of sensitive information.
Last month, a report written by Republicans on the Senate’s homeland security panel warned that the Trump administration faced an “alarming” amount of media leaks that posed a potential threat to national security. The 24-page report, titled “State Secrets: How and Avalanche of Media Leaks is Harming National Security,” estimated the Trump administration has had about one leak per day. 
The authors of the report urged the Justice Department to step up its investigations into the leaks.
On Thursday, a new leak hit the White House hard. 
The Washington Post released complete transcripts from Trump’s telephone conversations with Enrique Peña Nieto, the president of Mexico, and Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.
The documents provided an unfiltered glimpse into Trump’s diplomacy during his first few days on the job. It also unveiled some not-so-nice comments he made in which he called New Hampshire a “drug infested den” and pleaded with Nieto to stay quiet about the controversial border wall Trump repeatedly promised he’d build.
“Leaking the phone calls between our president and other heads of state is nothing short of a national disgrace,” Kellyanne Conway, White House counselor, told “Fox & Friends” on Friday. “I want there to be bipartisan outrage.”
She noted the West Wing is a “small place” and finding the leakers might be “easier” than some realize.”
Former federal prosecutors told Fox News that the leak likely constitutes a federal crime. And lawmakers have voiced concern about how that material got out and the security implications.
Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Bob Corker of Tennessee lashed out at the person behind the leak, with Graham calling it a “disservice to the president” and Corker saying he hopes Trump’s new chief of staff will “fire every single person” who is behind leaking sensitive information from within the White House.
Though Friday’s announcement has been in the works for some time, it comes during a rocky period between Trump and Sessions. Trump has taken the former Alabama senator to task over the past few weeks and has stated his “disappointment” with the country’s top law enforcement official via tweets, interviews and press conferences.
Trump slammed Sessions for not being tougher on leaks from the intelligence community.

"I want the attorney general to be much tougher," Trump said last week. "I want the leaks from intelligence agencies, which are leaking like rarely have they ever leaked before, at a very important level. These are intelligence agencies we cannot have that happen.”
Gosh, El Presidente, didn't leaks get you into the White House, even though Hillary got over 2,000,000 more citizen votes than you got?

Gosh, El Presidente, are you really after people who leak stuff on you, such as, you really didn't have such a great chat with the Presidents of Mexico and Australia as you had held forth publicly?

Are you really after people who leak stuff that ties you into the leaks that got you elected last year?

Is this yet another look over there and not at me and my cronies and Russia maneuver?

I'd love to see something credible showing the American people exactly how much actually leaked threatens national security versus what was leaked that embarrassed you, or pissed you off.

I figure I'll see those statitics about when I see your tax returns - God help the IRS whistleblower who leaks your tax returns and threatens your security, for real?
Meanwhilst, some great blue heron fun in Mother Nature's last stand on Key West, which I bet Donald Trump can imagine ways to turn into make Key West more money.

Responses to “The Ominous History of Key West’s Secret “Central Park””

  1. Looking online, it seems the Hawk missile was a surface to air (anti-aircraft) missile? Was not a nuclear missile? Might not have been capable of starting a nuclear war?
    Found this comprehensive 2010 blog post about the hidden park online:
    For many years, there were camps in what then were called “the wetlands” on the ocean side of the airport runway. Homeless camps. The mail plane that left around 6:30 a.m. daily was the community alarm clock.
    That ended in 2004, after city commissioner Merili McCoy toured the camps. One campsite was especially foul. A big pile of trash containing the camper’s feces. I saw it myself, when the camper showed me his campsite sometime before Merili made her tour. She did a slide presentation of her tour during a city commission meeting.
    The upshot was the campers in the wetlands, I was one, were allowed to move our tents out to the bridle path facing Smathers Beach, pending construction of the city’s homeless shelter, which was named KOTS.
    I was at my campsite when assistant city manager John Jones came by one morning with a couple of Key West police officers, and I hugged him, he’s an old Alabama boy, and asked him where we could move our tents? He diverted his eyes toward Smathers Beach, and I spread the word.
    Perhaps that’s a different kind of ominous history.
    I myself have spent very little time in the the Riviera Drive side of the hidden park. I have heard homeless camps were in there.
    I cringe to think the park will be developed in some way, as opposed to simply being left alone.
    I can see conch trains hauling cruise ship passengers in there, to hear how the missiles stationed there could have started WW III – Armageddon.
    I bet the manatee in the video will really like to see their habit overrun with humans.
    I suppose progress is inevitable, though.

    • Yes. In the video Tom Hambright explains that they were anti-aircraft missiles and Commissioner Payne reminded us that years later it was made public that, had we tried to shoot down a Russian plane with one of our Hawk missiles then the Russians were under orders to nuke us. That is why the Army launching one of those Hawk missiles (the first shot) would have (unbeknownst to the Army at the time) triggered a nuclear war.

        I can’t say I am an expert on this topic – the Cuban missile crisis – I was in college then. However, I don’t recollect any Russian war planes flying toward America as if to nuke the red, white and blue, and I imagine if such had happened, then those hawk missiles just might have been launched and the Russian nukes in Cuba obliterated by American bombers, and, well, Dr. Strangelove might then have become a true story.
        Do ya s’pose the new mayor (elected next year), or Tony Yaniz, or The Truman Waterfront Advisory Board will clamor to turn Mother Nature’s last stand on Key West into another amu$ement park?

  2. Beautifully done video. Loved the final song, puppy and–is there really a manatee swimming around back there?
    I think the area should be carefully developed. Nature and history. All levels of our government loves to sit on valuable property and keep it from We The People. Let us enjoy this remarkable space. I’m going to bike there right now, if I can find it. Why didn’t you name the road?

      Go out Flagler Ave away from Key West High School, Rick, turn right at the church about a block this side of where the soup kitchen used to be, is how I have gotten into there. I think that’s called Government Road? There is a small tidal canal with a bridge over it on Flagler, just past the turn off at the church.
    • Ha! So involved in the minutiae of making the video that we forgot to tell people how to get there!! [I’ve added a little map…] Thanks Rick
