SOCORRO COUNTY COMMISSIONER GLEN DUGGINS ENDORSES STEVE PEARCE



September 24, 2018

ALBUQUERQUE—Socorro County Commissioner Glen Duggins today endorsed Steve Pearce for Governor following a false claim last week by Michelle Lujan Grisham that he had endorsed her.

“I’d like to clear something up: I fully support Steve Pearce for Governor. It’s disappointing that Michelle Lujan Grisham chose to mislead voters by including my name in a list of endorsements without my agreement or permission. Steve Pearce is the only candidate in this race who will create jobs, fix education, solve poverty, and tackle crime. That’s why I’m proud to publicly endorse him today for Governor of New Mexico,” said Duggins.

“New Mexico voters deserve honesty from their Governor, not somebody who makes up fake endorsements. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s dishonesty is disqualifying. If she misleads New Mexicans about something like this, what else is she lying about?” added Pearce campaign manager Paul Smith.

Kitties

This evening, I was sitting outside enjoying the view when I noticed Sierra at the front door staring intently.

She was staring at one of the stray cats that I feed (there's also a Siamese I feed). He (I am assuming its a male) was sitting at the front gate staring back at Sierra. After a few minutes, he wandered off. I was also feeding a one-eared grey cat, but he disappeared around May.

Whenever I get food out for the strays, Sierra looks at me in puzzlement. I tell her that I'm feeding "the poor kitties".

I then decided to take a little walk over to the second acre for a little after-dinner exercise. It looks like it may rain later as clouds are dark and gathering over the area. The last rain we had was a half-inch last week. The Weather Channel says around 15% chance on average.

When I was heading back, I noticed the stray sitting in front of the front fence. He won't let me approach him, but he didn't run when I went past him by about 8 yards. After I entered the gate. He came back the near the gate and flopped down.

Above, the stray relaxing a few feet from the gate after I came back. Photo by Armand Vaquer.

After a while, He got up and headed over into the neighbor's yard. His tail was straight up, meaning he was happy. He should be, he ate a big meal. I've never noticed strays walking with their tails straight up before.

It is starting to get cooler here at night. 

Judicial Watch Statement on Kavanaugh Allegations



(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton made the following statement in response to the latest efforts to delay Judge Kavanaugh’s Senate confirmation:
Americans should brook no further delay of a full Senate vote on Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court. 
Let’s be clear: Leftists are trying to blow up the Senate confirmation process with shady smears. There is no legitimate reason that these last-minute allegations can’t be summarily evaluated, and a Judiciary Committee vote taken this week. 
Leftist law breaking, rule breaking, violence, and disruption have already marred the public Kavanaugh confirmation hearings. One can only imagine the disruptive show trial Leftists plan with Kavanaugh’s accusers. The Senate should shut this circus down and move the Kavanaugh confirmation to a timely vote. 
Will the Senate allow its confirmation process to be turned into a search-and-destroy mission by leftist partisans? The vote to confirm can’t come soon enough. That the Senate hasn’t voted yet is shameful. 
It is urgent you let your Senators know how you feel about the Kavanaugh confirmation process. You can reach your Senators at 202-224-3121.

In an effort to draw attention to the $12 billion backlog of national park maintenance projects, Zion National Park is getting a top level visitor.

According to U.S. News & World Report:
ZION NATIONAL PARK, Utah (AP) — Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke will be at Zion National Park to draw attention to a maintenance backlog at national parks. 
The Southern Utah park known for striking red-rock vistas estimates its backlog at $65 million. 
Also on hand Monday to call for Congressional action on the problem will be Republican U.S. Rep. Rob Bishop, who chairs the powerful House National Resources Committee, and his fellow GOP Congressmen Chris Stewart and John Curtis.

Another Roach Crawls Out and A GOP Backlash May Be Brewing



Another roach has crawled out of the woodwork. It is part of the Democrats' full throttle smear campaign against Brett Kavanaugh.

The timing of this is interesting since the credibility of the first accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, is tanking. So the Democrats, in desperation, brought forth another accuser.

The Washington Times reported:
Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh denied another sexual assault allegation against him on Sunday from a woman who said he harassed her while the two attended Yale University roughly 35 years ago. 
Deborah Ramirez, who was contacted by the New Yorker, was reluctant to share her story since she had been drinking heavily at the time of the alleged incident.
But after a few days, she decided to talk to the magazine, which published her claim Sunday alleging Judge Kavanaugh exposed himself to her after drinking with a group of friends in a suite on campus during their 1983-1984 school year. 
“I would think an F.B.I. investigation would be warranted,” Ms. Ramirez told the magazine. 
Her allegation comes as Democrats have called for an FBI probe into claims made by Christine Blasey Ford, a California professor who came forward last week, alleging Judge Kavanaugh forced himself on her when the two were in high school roughly 36 years ago after drinking at a house party. 
“This alleged event from 35 years ago did not happen. The people who knew me then know that this did not happen, and have said so. This is a smear, plain and simple,” Judge Kavanaugh said. “I look forward to testifying on Thursday about the truth, and defending my good name — and the reputation for character and integrity I have spent a lifetime building — against these last-minute allegations.”
To read more, go here.

All this may cost the Democrats more support during the upcoming midterm elections. There may be a backlash in the making with more motivated Republicans going to the polls totally pissed off.

According to Rush Limbaugh:
This can’t be said enough: They really believe they’re gonna win the Senate, folks. They believe their polls. They don’t have the slightest idea what a potential backlash they are creating with their behavior here and what they’re doing to Kavanaugh. They haven’t the slightest idea. They have no idea of the rage! They think the Democrats have all the motivation and inspiration, eagerness to vote? 
They have no idea what this is doing to Republican turnout. No idea at all. We saw a harbinger of it in a Texas special election last night where a Republican won a Democrat seat that the Democrats have held for 139 years, and the polls did not say this was gonna happen. Democrats think they’re in the process turning Texas blue, and yet this one seat that they’ve held in a district that went heavily for Hillary elected a Republican. 
They’re sitting there blind as a bat. They have no concept, they have no sense, because they’re not connected to the American people. They have no idea how their behavior here is revving up Republicans to vote in November like nothing else could! You wait. We’ll see.

For me, I am looking forward to today's Rush Limbaugh Show. It should be fun!

CSULB Kowtows To Political Correctness



Following the 2016 election, the administration of California State University, Long Beach (my alma mater) allowed a post-election protest. That's okay, but then they posted a video of it on their Facebook page. If that's the image they wanted to convey, that's fine, too. Only they won't get any more monetary contributions from me. Since this and other idiotic decisions made by the CSULB administration, I ended any and all contributions to the university and alumni association.

They've stopped calling me for contributions since I told them off.

Now, they've made another idiotic decision

From Patch.com:
LONG BEACH, CA – The statue of the Cal State Long Beach mascot Prospector Pete will soon be removed in order to disassociate the university from California's gold rush and its impact on native Americans, says Cal State Long Beach President Jane Close Conoley. 
A timeline is yet to be determined, but the statue will be transplanted to a future alumni center, the Long Beach Press-Telegram reported. 
The Prospector Pete image reflected Founding President Pete Peterson's common references to having struck the gold of education by establishing Long Beach State College, Conoley told the newspaper in an Email. 
"President Peterson was absolutely correct; education is precious." But, Conoley said, as the university's diversity grew and more voices were heard, "we came to know that the 1849 California gold rush was a time in history when the indigenous peoples of California endured subjugation, violence and threats of genocide." 
In September 2017, Cal State Long Beach's Associated Students Inc. started working on a resolution that passed in March to move or relocate the statue. It acknowledges the campus's location of being placed on Tongva Tribe land, whose inhabitants are said to have been enslaved by settlers to build missions in the greater Los Angeles area.
My comments about the article at Patch.com:
It is getting so that history is not being honored or even discussed these days. Here we have another example of political correctness run amok. History should be discussed, be it good or bad. Decisions by CSULB in recent years has made me decide to discontinue making donations to the school or alumni association (I am of the CSULB class of 1979). This country is going crazy. The statue should be left alone and kept where it is.
They're painting with a broad brush the implication that all of the 49ers in the Mother Lode abused the Indians there. Perhaps a small minority did, but does that justify tarring all those who went for find gold?

Notice the university's seal at top. There's a pick and shovel on it to signify the 49ers. Looks like they'll have to change that, too.

The cost of removing/moving the statue is a waste of taxpayers' money. President Jane Close Conoley is sure no Stephen Horn (the president of CSULB during my time there).

Man Who Walked Near Old Faithful In More Hot Water

This guy is a prime candidate for a Darwin Award.

This is the same guy who walked dangerously close to Old Faithful Geyser in Yellowstone National Park. Some say he also urinated into the geyser.

The New York Post reported:
CHEYENNE, Wyo. — A man accused of walking dangerously close to the Old Faithful geyser in Yellowstone National Park faces additional charges after a police chase in Wyoming’s capital city. 
Police said Thursday that they arrested 27-year-old Gabriel Villalva of Greeley, Colorado, after he drove recklessly around Cheyenne, which is a seven-hour drive from Yellowstone. 
Police say they stopped Villalva with spike strips after a 15-minute chase Wednesday. They say he spun his wheels and his SUV caught fire. 
Police say they fired beanbag rounds to subdue him.

In case you're wondering, a Darwin Award is:
The Darwin Award is a fictional award which is given out to people who commit acts of utter stupidity that often involve their own injury or even death. The name is derived from Charles Darwin's Theory of Evolution (survival of the fittest), since the winners of the Darwin award aren't expected to survive long enough or remain capable of propagating their own hereditary stupidity.

One of my favorite hangouts in Tokyo is Asakusa, specifically the Sensoji and Nakamise Dori areas as well as the area at the Sumida River.

Time Out Tokyo has an article on the best restaurants and cafés near Sensoji Temple.

It begins with:
With over 30 million visitors annually, Sensoji Temple in Asakusa is one of those Tokyo sights that virtually every traveller checks out at least once. And for good reason: Metropolitan Tokyo's oldest temple offers entertainment for hours, from the bustling Nakamise shopping arcade in front of it to the calmness of neighbouring Asakusa Shrine. But getting a proper meal around Sensoji can be a bit of a challenge, especially if you're looking for something better than the usual tourist nosh. That's why we've rounded up 15 of the best eateries in the area, including traditional restaurants, trendy cafés and down-to-earth izakayas. Take your pick below.

Social Media Antitrust Executive Order Drafted



In recent months, it has become apparent that some social media sites have an obvious bias against conservative viewpoints by employing such tactics as "shadow banning" to outright bans while promoting leftist/liberal viewpoints.

The Trump Administration is considering whether such actions are in violation of antitrust and other laws and has drafted a draft executive order to investigate.

According to Bloomberg:
(Bloomberg) -- The White House is considering a draft executive order for President Donald Trump that would instruct federal antitrust and law enforcement agencies to open probes into the practices of Alphabet Inc.’s Google, Facebook Inc., and other social media companies. 
Bloomberg News obtained a draft of the order, which a White House official said was in its early stages and hasn’t been run past other government agencies. Separately, Lindsey Walters, deputy White House press secretary, said in an emailed statement that the document isn’t the result of an official White House policy making process. 
The document instructs U.S. antitrust authorities to “thoroughly investigate whether any online platform has acted in violation of the antitrust laws.” It instructs other government agencies to recommend within a month after it’s signed, actions that could potentially “protect competition among online platforms and address online platform bias.”
Read the Executive Order draft on bias in online platforms. 
The document doesn’t name any companies. If signed, the order would represent a significant escalation of Trump’s aversion to Google, Facebook, Twitter and other social media companies, whom he’s publicly accused of silencing conservative voices and news sources online.

Autumnal Equinox

The Autumnal Equinox arrived at 6:54 PM Pacific Time, so that would make it 7:54 here, since I am in the Mountain Time Zone. That was about six minutes ago as I write this.

It seems like only recently that summer arrived. Time flies when you're having fun, or whatever.

Taking A Walk

Since my cardiologist wants me to get more exercise, I took a stroll around the property. I just got back a little while ago.

Above, the power lines, access road and Scott's residence. Photo by Armand Vaquer.

I headed out the back gate (now that I have the combination to the back gate lock that the propane company uses to fill the tank) to the area where, a few weeks ago, a couple of neighbors (Scott and James) and I set up our sniper's nest for coyotes.

Above, the wash and the back part of the second acre. Photo by Armand Vaquer.

I then headed a little bit up the powerline access road that is in back of the property and took a few photos.

From there, I walked to the second acre.

I walked through the second acre along "Barking Spider Road" to the front, passing along the GOCO Beast Barn.

From there, I headed back to the house.

Woodpecker

One nice thing about living here in New Mexico, I can occasionally see different varieties of wildlife.

Yesterday, I saw a tarantula on my walkway. This time of year is mating season for them and it was out looking for a hook-up.

A little while ago, a woodpecker was working on my crabapple tree in front of the house. I got up to get my camera and he flew off. But, fortunately, he came back and I managed to get these two photos before he went up into the tree where I couldn't see him because of the foliage.




UPDATE (9/24/18):

This particular woodpecker is a red-naped sapsucker.

National Parks In Autumn

With kids back in school, the summer crowds at our national parks are gone. Fall is a good time to visit national parks as the weather has cooled down to more comfortable temperatures.

WinnebaGo Life has an article on visiting several national parks during the fall months.

It begins with:
In recent years, our National Parks have been smashing attendance records. Last year, nearly matched the National Park System’s record-breaking centennial in 2016. As wonderful as it is that more people are enjoying the treasure that is our National Park System, this does have a little bit of a downside, especially if you’re looking for a serene escape into nature at one of the more popular parks. 
To alleviate the strain on some of our parks, shuttle systems have been instituted. Some shuttles, like the one in Zion National Park, are mandatory for most of the year, sometimes resulting in an experience that’s a little more theme park in feel. (You can only drive your car through Zion from November to March, now.) 
But, as summer winds down and fall begins, a more serene experience opens up once again at some of the busiest National Parks. If you have the flexibility, try visiting Rocky Mountain, Yellowstone, and Grand Teton National Parks in the fall. The crowds die down, along with the mosquitoes (in the case of Yellowstone and Grand Teton), making them just perfect to visit in the fall.

Good Sam Denies Medical Emergency Air Ambulance Claim

Above, the air ambulance helicopter that took me to Twin Falls. Photo by Mitch Geriminsky.

This is a story I can relate to somewhat.

When I had my heart attack in Wells, Nevada last July, I was in no condition to make any medical or any other kinds of decisions. Luckily, my friend Mitch Geriminsky took charge. He was told that there's a hospital in Elko, Nevada and a better facility in Twin Falls, Idaho. He opted for Twin Falls. Soon, I was airlifted by helicopter to Twin Falls.

Fortunately, since this was a medical emergency, it was all covered.

Some people aren't so lucky with their insurers.

From the Los Angeles Times:
Of the many dubious reasons insurers use for denying claims, one of the most bizarre is telling a patient they neglected to obtain prior approval for treatment in the midst of a medical emergency. 
Because, of course, the first thing most people think of in a life-or-death situation is phoning some insurance company’s call center and jumping through bureaucratic hoops. 
Kathy Mutchler faced this Catch-22 recently — and found herself saddled with a $71,000 air ambulance bill — after being diagnosed with a severe kidney infection in Mammoth Lakes, where she was staying with her wife in an RV park. 
Mutchler, 64, who these days calls the open road home, is a member of the Good Sam Club, the world’s largest organization of recreational vehicle owners. You’ve probably seen the stickers on the backs of RVs and campers. 
Mutchler pays $89.99 annually for the service’s TravelAssist program, which, among other things, says it covers medical evacuations if suitable care isn’t available locally, as well as any costs involved in returning to your RV. 
Mutchler’s wife, Kathy O’Hara, 60, joined her for the trip and contacted Good Sam as soon as they landed in Nevada to let the organization know what was happening. She was given a case number by a service rep. 
Mutchler was hospitalized for three nights. Her condition gradually improved, she was released from the Reno medical center, and she and O’Hara rented a car for the return to Mammoth Lakes — an expense they believed that, like the air ambulance, would be covered by the Good Sam coverage. 
It was on the drive home that a Good Sam rep called. Mutchler’s claim had been denied. She’d be responsible for the air ambulance and rental car costs.

"Godzilla: King of the Monsters" Gets PG-13 Rating

Above, the Japanese poster to the 2014 Gareth Edwards film.

"I want this on my tombstone."

That was the reaction by director Michael Dougherty to the MPAA's rating of PG-13 of Godzilla: King of the Monsters.

According to Heroic Hollywood:
The first trailer for Godzilla: King of the Monsters premiered during the Warner Bros. Hall H presentation at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. The trailer really brought the house down and since then, fans have been eager to see more of the mayhem that director Michael Dougherty (Trick ‘r Treat; Krampus) has in store for the sequel to Gareth Edwards’ 2014 film. 
Recently, it was announced that the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) have given the official rating to Godzilla: King of the Monsters as well as the description for the rating. The film is officially rated PG-13 due to sequences of monster action violence and destruction, and for some language.

I wonder what Dougherty's reaction would be if it were rated R?

Free Tokyo Walking Tours

Above, one interesting tour is a nighttime tour that will take visitors to Godzilla Road in Shinjuku. Photo by Armand Vaquer.

People wanting to save money or younger people who may not have a lot of money can still get enjoyment out of a tour of Japan's capital, Tokyo. 

Because...these tours of Tokyo are FREE!

What's the catch? They're walking tours.

According to Tokyo Cheapo:
Walking tours are a good way to meet new people and explore Tokyo. Also, unlike bus tours, Tokyo walking tours tend to be smaller, which means that the guide can better focus on his/her guests and you’re not as pressed for time. It’s also more likely for you to get glimpses of everyday Japanese life when on a walking tour. 
In no particular order, here are some groups that organize free Tokyo walking tours for fellow cheapos—note, though, that you’ll still have to pay for admission whenever necessary, and that if you’ll be eating, it’s considered polite to treat your guide to a meal.

Japan Visitor Growth In August In Single Digits

For the second month in a row, Japan saw monthly tourist increases in the single digits.

News On Japan reported:
The estimated number of visitors to Japan in August rose 4.1 pct from a year earlier to 2,577,800, marking single-digit growth for the second consecutive month due to recent disasters in the country, the Japan National Tourism Organization said Wednesday. 
A powerful earthquake in Osaka Prefecture in June and downpours that devastated other western parts of the country in July led to many Japan trip cancelations, the organization said.

Where's The Aquarium?

When I went to see my cardiologist this morning at the Rehoboth McKinley Christian Health Care Services in Gallup, I spotted a sign near the elevators that reminded me of the Laurel & Hardy short, "County Hospital".

Above, the Rehoboth McKinley Christian Health Care hospital. Photo by Armand Vaquer.

At the bottom of the sign for the 3rd Floor, it indicated that the center's Solarium is on that floor.

In "County Hospital" Stan Laurel goes to the hospital to visit his friend Oliver Hardy. When he gets there he asks where to find Ollie. A nurse tells him his room is near the solarium upstairs.

Stanley goes there and asks where's the aquarium.

Here's the full "County Hospital" short:



Ramp Finished

After going to see the cardiologist and having breakfast with the neighbors down at Denny's, I came home to find that Russell installed and graded the top layer of gravel onto the ramp into the second acre.

Above, trying it out with The Beast. Photo by Armand Vaquer.

As I was looking at it, Russell and his wife came by. I told him he did a fast and great job.

I also tried it out with The Beast and everything went perfectly.

Above, another view. Photo by Armand Vaquer.

Since the ramp extends into the existing "road" through the property alongside the GOCO Beast Barn, I'm now calling it Barking Spider Road.

Above, the NM tarantula. No, it didn't bark, just growled. Photo by Armand Vaquer.

Speaking of spiders, I found a black (with red) New Mexico tarantula on my walkway. It is the first time I've seen one since I've lived here.

For the fun of it, I ordered an aluminum street sign (only $10.00) through BuildASign.com.

Here's what it will look like:

35th Anniversary of Glenn Strange's Passing

Thanks to Bryan Kendrick at the Universal Horror Films Facebook page, today is the 35th anniversary of the passing of actor Glenn Strange (August 16, 1899 – September 20, 1973).

He played the Frankenstein Monster in three films and was in many westerns. He was Sam the bartender on television's Gunsmoke.

I remember his passing as it was around the time I was down in San Diego at the Town & Country Hotel for the California Republican Party State Convention.

Some Glenn Strange photo mementos at the Valley Relics Museum:




Ramp Work Started

A little while ago, I stepped outside with a cup of coffee to sit out on the deck and enjoy the weather (we had a half-inch of rain overnight) when I heard a tractor engine not too far away. I looked and found that Russell, my neighbor with a gravel business, had already brought over two loads of soil to the second acre and was grading it into the shape of a ramp.

Above, the graded soil. Photo by Armand Vaquer.

I went over and took some photos. He said he had nothing going on so he figured he'd get started.

Above, this will work nicely for The Beast. The beginning
 of "Barking Spider Road"? Photo by Armand Vaquer.

Tomorrow, he will bring over a load of gravel to spread over the top of the soil.

I wasn't expecting work to begin until early next week or this weekend at the earliest. But he got busy on it now.

The man works fast!

What The Mainstream Media Won't Report

You most likely won't see any of this reported by the mainstream media:




Hawaii Volcanoes National Park To Re-Open

Above, a helicopter view of a vent from Kilauea volcano on the Big Island. Photo by Armand Vaquer.

There's some good news coming from Hawaii's Big Island: Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is set to re-open.

The Weather Channel reported:
Months after eruptions at the Big Island's Kilauea volcano forced the record-long closure of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, the popular tourist destination will reopen Saturday without one key element — lava.

Back in April, a massive lava lake continued to boil and bubble at the park until eruptions beginning in May emptied the lake entirely of its molten rock. Now, all that remains is a large, gaping hole.

Replacement Shirt Has Arrived!

Above, the replacement shirt. Photo by Armand Vaquer.

My replacement Reyn Spooner Ford Mustang shirt arrived in today's mail.

It is an exact duplicate of the one the Wells, Nevada paramedics cut to pieces on July 27. It is in excellent shape (like the last one was).

However, in view of the angina episode I had last night, it probably wouldn't be prudent yet to wear it as I don't want this one to meet the same fate as the other.

At least until after I see my cardiologist tomorrow morning.
