I loved that song. Seagulls and the Aurora Borealis:



They'll open the gates of hell on her. But then, she's used to them doing that... 'You go, Girl!'

I think Oprah made that expression famous, IDK.

Not sure he's in Germany. See more from the SPLC at ashling's thread:

Man Who Claims Ties to ‘Christian American Patriot Militia’ Threatens Obama in Facebook Post

By Bill Morlin on November 22, 2013

The U.S. Secret Service is aware of a man with ties to a group called the Christian American Patriots Militia who is the apparent author of a Facebook post that says the antigovernment group has the “authority” to assassinate President Obama.

“We now have authority to shoot Obama, i.e., to kill him,” Everest Wilhelmsen wrote on his Facebook page on Nov. 19 – the same day Larry Klayman and his Reclaim America Coalition held a rally across from the White House to begin a “second American Revolution...”




It’s not immediately clear whether Wilhelmsen’s public statements cross the line from free speech protected by the First Amendment to an actual threat against the president, which is a federal crime...

It continues: “The authority to kill Obama comes from the 2nd Amendment of our Constitution: He is levying war on the United States and aiding and comforting our foreign enemies – the 2nd Amendment gives us the right and duty (authority) to engage an enemy of the United States that does so with the design to reduce us under absolute Despotism. I would be very surprised, if Obama does not leave Washington DC today (Nov. 19th)… never to return, if he is not dead within the month.”

Wilhelmsen is listed as the administrator of the Christian American Patriots Militia. Its Facebook page says it has 1,405 members, who operate as a “closed group.”

“The foundations of our nation are Christian principles built upon the bedrock of Truth, not on the shifting sands of lies,” the group’s Facebook page says. Further, it says the “founding fathers” and the Constitution give modern day Christians the “rights and duty to bear arms against any government having a design to reduce us under absolute Despotism.”

Wilhelmsen has posted other anti-Obama and anti-Muslim comments on Facebook in recent weeks, as well on a Twitter account, where he says he is “fighting illegitimate public authorities and oppression, lifting up the downtrodden and freeing the enslaved.”

His Facebook page says he has “work and education” connections with the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, Calif., and the “Teheran American School,” in Tehran, Iran.
A spokeswoman for the art college said Wilhelmsen is not currently on the faculty or enrolled there.

to Cooley Hurd for posting it on ashling's thread. It appears to be public domain with no copyright restrictions, so I have posted most of it.

Dude is in Germany, spewing this stuff. SS can't touch him:

From a previous post in 2014:

But he is still currently saying the same things:

Take a long look at that website. It's not criminal in Germany to threaten Obama. But this gets the RWNJs here all giddy thinking of a right wing revolution. They are always into a violent one, although they have been doing it at the ballot box, too.

Wilhelmsen lives in one of the highest taxed countries in the world, but calls for Americans to pay no taxes. The USA government he calls illegitimate, and with his intense hatred of all things Muslim and fear he is promoting, I wonder if he supported Bush invading Iraq, but don't have time to look for that.

He's clearly decided to make money on ODS in the USA, if nothing else. He won't do anything to endanger himself. He's untouchable over there with his stochastic terrorism.

And this is a great scam, he'll be holding onto that reward money! There is a chance he's being paid already to do his spiel, by whom, I've no idea. But in Germany, he may have the leisure and funding for this.

He has more than one piece on how he thinks his and our government should be:

God has given the German people their true identity as a nation, not as an illegitimate government



This post is to present the facts of the law, the facts seen in my Human Rights Complaint (File No. 2341/11, The Dignity of Man - Ugly Wolves) and the unlawful “decision“ of Judge M. Villiger which reveal that the European Court of Human Rights is conspiring with illegitimate “State authorities” - stealthily violating Germany’s Basic Law (Grundgesetz - GG) and international treaties, fraudulently claiming state authority, and disrespecting human rights that are needed to secure free democratic communities, including violating rights for legal recourse and an effective remedy for violations of rights.



NOTE: It is unlawful for Germany’s “State authorities” and the European Court of Human Rights to claim that they respect the German people and human rights while willfully violating the democratic rule of law. These “State authorities” have, in fact, been fraudulently claiming immunity for themselves for over 43 years while deceivingly and ever-increasingly installing another dictatorship...

So he may no longer be convinced Germany is the home of God-given rights:

Enough dumpster diving, but the website is interesting.

The GOP is proposing to eliminate all those programs and those on it. Follow the logic.

The GOP is the consistent voice of the ultra wealthy. Their goal is the elimination of all but the 1% and their trusted servants. None of this should be a surprise.

They and others see the year 2030 as when they will accomplish this, and they will, without well organized opposition. It is indeed organizing right now, as for many involved trying to save public interests and programs are seeing a backlash against the GOP.

We're at a tipping point. Time is still not on our side. But we have nearly two years to vote those in office nationally who will support our goals. At least this is what people I met with this weekend are gleaning from the many reports with real life Democrats who are resisting on every level.

It just never makes the news. We've had some very heartening victories lately and are not going to give in. The work is from meeting to meeting, district to district, county to state, through the federal level. We follow the bills through legislatures and know exactly what is going on, who is for us and who is against. We nurse along the ones that support our vision, which is New Deal, and we adapt to make it even more inclusive than before.

We resist, following each to see that the bad ones are lost. If we lose, we start again and keep track of our friends and enemies and are on the look out for allies, but we know who they are. In all things, we know that majority and seniority rule in legislatures and we work to keep those with our vision supported.

Too many lives are at stake for us to stay home, and I bow to those able to do more than I can now.

Cotton Gin conflated Iran and ISIS. Both start with an 'I.' He forgot that Iran is mainly Shia, so

ISIS has marked all of them for Death.

All the same to Cotton Gin. And apparently the Koch brothers, since he's their employee.

Bernie is right when he talks about the Koch Party being bigger than either of the others. But they stay in the shadows, abetted by MSM:

President Obama trolls the Koch brothers and Fox News:



And speaking of conservative heroes, the Koch brothers bought a table here tonight. But as usual, they used a shadowy right-wing organization as a front. Hello, Fox News.

Can't see it on the link (computer issues) but found something like it:



Incredible footage of hermit crab changing shells with anemones!

Published on Jul 13, 2014

In this exciting excerpt from the third season of Jonathan Bird's Blue World, Jonathan films a hermit crab changing shells and then also transferring its anemones from one shell to the other. This is extremely rare footage of a seldom-seen behavior!


Link in the description leads to a longer video.

Koch brothers platform coming to pass:

BERNIE SANDERS Uncovers 1980 Koch Agenda- "What Do the Koch Brothers Want?"

What else do the Koch brothers want?


In 1980, David Koch ran as the Libertarian Party’s vice-presidential candidate in 1980.

Let’s take a look at the 1980 Libertarian Party platform.

Here are just a few excerpts of the Libertarian Party platform that David Koch ran on in 1980:

“We urge the repeal of federal campaign finance laws, and the immediate abolition of the despotic Federal Election Commission.”

“We favor the abolition of Medicare and Medicaid programs.”

“We oppose any compulsory insurance or tax-supported plan to provide health services, including those which finance abortion services.”

“We also favor the deregulation of the medical insurance industry.”

“We favor the repeal of the fraudulent, virtually bankrupt, and increasingly oppressive Social Security system. Pending that repeal, participation in Social Security should be made voluntary.”

“We propose the abolition of the governmental Postal Service. The present system, in addition to being inefficient, encourages governmental surveillance of private correspondence. Pending abolition, we call for an end to the monopoly system and for allowing free competition in all aspects of postal service.”

“We oppose all personal and corporate income taxation, including capital gains taxes.”

“We support the eventual repeal of all taxation.”

“As an interim measure, all criminal and civil sanctions against tax evasion should be terminated immediately.”

“We support repeal of all law which impede the ability of any person to find employment, such as minimum wage laws.”

“We advocate the complete separation of education and State. Government schools lead to the indoctrination of children and interfere with the free choice of individuals. Government ownership, operation, regulation, and subsidy of schools and colleges should be ended.”

“We condemn compulsory education laws … and we call for the immediate repeal of such laws.”

“We support the repeal of all taxes on the income or property of private schools, whether profit or non-profit.”

“We support the abolition of the Environmental Protection Agency.”

“We support abolition of the Department of Energy.”

“We call for the dissolution of all government agencies concerned with transportation, including the Department of Transportation.”

“We demand the return of America's railroad system to private ownership. We call for the privatization of the public roads and national highway system.”

“We specifically oppose laws requiring an individual to buy or use so-called "self-protection" equipment such as safety belts, air bags, or crash helmets.”

“We advocate the abolition of the Federal Aviation Administration.”

“We advocate the abolition of the Food and Drug Administration.”

“We support an end to all subsidies for child-bearing built into our present laws, including all welfare plans and the provision of tax-supported services for children.”

“We oppose all government welfare, relief projects, and ‘aid to the poor’ programs. All these government programs are privacy-invading, paternalistic, demeaning, and inefficient. The proper source of help for such persons is the voluntary efforts of private groups and individuals.”

“We call for the privatization of the inland waterways, and of the distribution system that brings water to industry, agriculture and households.”

“We call for the repeal of the Occupational Safety and Health Act.”

“We call for the abolition of the Consumer Product Safety Commission.”

“We support the repeal of all state usury laws.”

In other words, the agenda of the Koch brothers is not only to defund Obamacare. The agenda of the Koch brothers is to repeal every major piece of legislation that has been signed into law over the past 80 years that has protected the middle class, the elderly, the children, the sick, and the most vulnerable in this country...

Tomorrow it will be Social Security, ending Medicare as we know it, repealing the minimum wage. It seems to me that the Koch brothers will not be content until they get everything they believe they are entitled to.

Our great nation can no longer be hijacked by right-wing billionaires like the Koch brothers.

For the sake of our children and our grandchildren, for the sake of our economy, we have got to let democracy prevail.

We've heard these memes for years, Americans have come to believe this is how it has to be. It's the recipe for neo-feudalism.

Well, I don't know...



And with money comes...



BTW, nice gif. I'm stealing it.

Yup, looking forward to seeing this:



The dude is so Zen!
