    Interesting story HotCoffee. Glad you had a great Christmas. Now that it's over maybe we don't have to listen to all the lefties moan over whether or not Christmas songs are Mysognistic or not.

    Hey DianaR,

    Christmas was awesome. Cold here too. 31 this morning 42 afternoon high.

    Here is a ongoing little story....

    Lucifer's Semi Final Conclave...Part 1

    Posted By: Watchman

    They shuffled aimlessly about the elaborately decorated anteroom in muted conversation, timidly awaiting the arrival of their master. Lucifer had called for, an unheard of, emergency meeting. Their glances betrayed their thoughts of how to place blame on the others for their collective failure to miss their assigned deadlines.

    All seven generals (some may secretly call them princes, others, call them gods) were greatly renowned among the people of earth, and faithfully worshiped by most.

    Generals Gluttony and Sloth huddled around the wine bar and were in muted discussion about both the reason for, and the suddenness of, their summons.
    It had been rumored about that that worship thing WAS the problem. It was indeed many, but not ALL. Lucifer had stated this fact specifically at their last meeting, more than 6000 earth-years ago.
    He had been given the entire earth by the Creator, and boasted that even the Word of God stated that all mankind would worship him.

    They still shuddered to remember the fate of Lucifers’ chief scribe at the time who in some as yet unexplained loss of sensibility, blurted out the ‘rest of the quote’ from of all places, Rev 13:8-- “And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.”

    The fear in their eyes, and their sudden but obvious discomfort attracted the attention of Generals Greed and Envy who had been in conversation about the recent success of their human lieutenants whom they had originally cooperated to place in control of all human wealth. Why, they said, some of our lieutenants have even persuaded humans that our greys are in fact, alien gods from another planet. Some of the same promise unearned shares in enormous wealth. However, these generals were concerned that their collusion was now beginning to engender so much strife between human greed and envy that Lucifer sensed that there was so much competition between the two that the mission success was in jeopardy.

    Generals Lust and Wrath were talking about the cooperation of their earthly patrons in their assigned and well financed but seemingly divergent tasks of pedophilia, abortion, murder, rape, mayhem and world peace and how successful they were in disguising their actions in both politics and religion. Not to mention the great human push toward planet worship and witchcraft. Surely, they thought, Lucifer would be well pleased in how they had organized their command.

    General Pride, as usual, seldom talked to anyone. And, as was his nature, he was always alone, having obtained as his gift from his master the art of self worship.
    When he did speak, however, he insisted to the point of implied mayhem that his spoken words not be questioned. With a muted winks, the other six generals avoided confronting him at all costs.

    General Pride, for the life of himself, could not imagine the slightest disagreement coming his way from anyone, least of all, Lucifer.

    As the seven so mused, suddenly the sound of harps and muted drums interrupted the stillness of their thoughts, and as the doors swung wide, they were beckoned to the conclave, and each was joined on either side by a bevy of nude human forms, each in their own mind’s preferred imagination.

    Exactly as it happened before, thought General Sloth. Lucifer always throws one hell of a party.

    But, General Envy, as was his wont, sensed that this was not just another party. After all, they were not done yet with their tasks on earth. Not by a long shot, he thought. It used to be easier, even though those damned Christians had always been a pain in the ass, lately, they seem to have united in their defiance.

    Thus, as the doors shut, and a scowl spread across Lucifer’s beautiful and comely face, it was no surprise to General Envy that indeed, that those damned Christians were foremost on Lucifer’s mind.

    Not 'religious' 'denominational' Christians, mind you, for those have long since been deceived by a plurality of Generals Pride and Envy chosen human disciples with a smattering of General Lust's boys and girls. No indeed...Lucifer already owns those, lock, stock and barrel.

    In booming voice, Lucifer demands...Just HOW are we going to finish this thing if we cannot conquer the believers in that imposter? There is no bible burning left. We already did that, several times.

    Ahh.. yet another timid scribe Doubt blurted out...SIR..they have the Word in their being. The only way is to kill them. After all, Sir, there is not that many...

    Point of order...interrupted another scribe.. just as he disappeared in a bright flame... "It is also written that we are prohibited from outright killing them, without the Creator's permission"...

    Lucifer, with a scowl and a booming yet melodious voice..I TOLD YOU NOT TO EVER ALLUDE TO THAT NAME...He leaped to his feet and demanded..
    SILENCE...sit and hear this...hear it well lest you all perish with your human followers.

    Prince Doubt, the scribe will address this assembly.

    Prince Doubt?,,,,You are up...

    Lucifer’s Semi-Final Conclave….Part 2

    The Holiday Inn Express, Pahrump, NV ---

    Danielle Meacham had been married to Bill for only a little over 2 weeks now. It was the second time around for both of them. She sat in her gown at the small multipurpose table slowly sipping her room service coffee and gazing as the sun introduced itself above the mountains to the east. A helluva honeymoon, she mused. She had not seen Bill since yesterday afternoon.

    Both of them were easterners. Both were officially employed by Rocksense, Inc-- one of the myriad “Beltway Bandit” firms in Silver Springs which ‘everyone’ knew were owned by and operated for some unnamed National Intelligence club. They had been “lucky”.

    16 years ago, they both had achieved notably high scores on their UM entrance exams and miraculously received full scholarships for their initial degrees, followed by lucrative employment, and following that, fully paid continuing education. And, lots of interesting research….on things which were certainly not mainstream conversational subjects.

    She had finally got to meet in person the infamous ‘old George’ at lunch yesterday with Bill. It was a very brief conversation, and within minutes of finishing their meal, George and Bill arose. George headed to the door, while Bill hugged her and planted a kiss on her surprised face. George briefly paused, turned. and with a grin said…’you will be contacted…soon enough.’ And with that, George and Bill disappeared into a beige Toyota pickup, which soon exited and turned East on 308, vanishing into the bright desert mid day shimmer. Danielle had been trained well in observation, and it was obvious neither George nor Bill were operating the truck. So, dutifully, she waited. To pass the time, she scanned for the umpteenth time the pile of notes and sketches that had been given her by the agency library. They dated back over 60 years. All of them were authored by George Henly. About all she knew about George was that he was older than dirt, and a 60+ year agency lifer.

    The story of Ol George:

    At age 83, George Henly was without doubt, an enigma. He was a spry old codger, in amazing health and appearance, and if one were not privy to his age, they could easily assume he was in his mid fifties. George was born in Dexter, NM in 1935. In the mid 1940’s, he became best buddies with one Charlie Obermann, who had an older brother, Claude, who had just enlisted with the fledgling USAF, but then known as the RAAF.

    In the summer of 1947, PFC Claude Obermann was assigned to the military detail whose job was to STFU and police a 5 acre area of desert on a ranch near Roswell, NM collecting every fragment of a government ‘weather balloon’ which had crashed on a ranch near there. Long story short, Claude indeed found a very strange object, put it in his pocket instead of his collection bag, and eventually brought it to his family’s property near Dexter, where he showed the device to his brother Charlie and their good friend George. George in his later memos (2010) re-described the object as ’not considerably unlike a modern cell phone, but infinitely more useful’. In 1949, Charlie died in a horse riding mishap, and in 1951, Claude was killed in an aircraft maintenance operation Near Pusan, South Korea.

    At age 16, George thus ‘inherited’ the device, as well as an unintentional and yet future 60+ year Agency career. In some of his first notes, George relates that:

    Just before his eighteenth birthday, I formally met Anu, as he so liked to be termed. For he stated several times that so was his name throughout history. Anu is what we would call a ‘grey’. A lizard man. An alien. George would be the first to tell you, however, their general facial appearance is much more akin to frogs, though one could generally classify them as generally reptilian and not be too far off. This first meeting, according to George, was not at all frightening in the least. Quite the contrary.

    Danielle continues reading some salient facts as described by George in his memos:

    Anu and his fellows are indeed Alien, but not in the sense that they come from other planets. They are native to earth. They never ‘age’. They have been a part of this earth since, well, since long before our recorded history. Their unveiling to man has always, been, up till now, inadvertent. Some, but far from all appearances occurred for instance as with the Vimana craft of prehistoric India. The heavy lift levitation devices of ancient Egypt, The bird men of the Toltecs, as well as several others less known.

    The frogs are of 3 types. All are specifically assigned to deceive, and are given all physical knowledge. They have no need of what we would call ‘learning’. They have no capacity to learn anything. There is nothing new. All are created by and generally bound by their nature to be the enemy of any so-called creator except one…Lucifer.

    Anu is of the third type. Anu himself, is, however the unquestioned leader of all ‘greys’. His common name among greys is ‘deception‘. That is the closest meaning in our understanding. This third type are physically also the mid size. About 2 meters in stature. Arms with fingers, feet with toes. No tail. No sexual organs. As a matter of fact, none of the three types have either tails nor sexual organs for reproduction.

    The first type are the most numerous. They are relatively small, about 1 meter in statue. Their faces are less ‘froggy’ in appearance due to their rounded cranium and large eyes, Actually, they are more insect-like in appearance. They have two bowlegs and two arms each with hands that have no thumb. This type is the more energetic of the lot, being impatient and tired of waiting for ‘orders’. They are the ones who flew the ‘weather balloon’ without appropriate orders that was destroyed by Anu in our year of 1947. They have ‘jumped the gun’ in similar incidences without authorization.

    Both the first and third types of greys require no food or water for sustenance. They have no orifices for intake of physical matter or disposal of wastes. Their sustenance is simply mental. They both crave and partake often of the thoughts and intents of humans. Sometimes they overindulge, meaning some human subjects are left with neither thoughts nor memories. Greys have no sexual knowledge since they have no such organs, so they have orgasms using the mental faculties of humans who do have such experience. We explain it away as such things as Alzheimer’s or some other defect of normal aging. It’s not. It’s real.

    The second type of greys are both the largest and the most mysterious. They alone have the capacity to grow their stature physically, and seemingly at will. A common trait of this second type is the presence of six phalanges on their limbs. Six fingers, six toes. Some have known them through history as ’shape shifters’. They do partake of ’food’ and water, though it is not as we know food.

    They alone, of all the greys, have a liquid circulatory system yet do not have a bodily mechanism for self governing temperature control. Their existence depends on cool caverns and caves in the earth. The can and do, at times venture out, and if wearing protection from the sun and light are able to survive for a time. They require certain things, among them the blood of humans or other animals. Through history, they have ’trained’ their human subjects to arrange human sacrifices for their benefit. In this, they have always preferred viral young men, virgins and children because they wish to receive the first mental and physical experiences for themselves.

    Danielle could not read anymore. She replaced the folder in her case, and walked to the window. The sun was now behind her, and long shadows gathered on the objects below.
    She was hungry. As she walked down the stairs, her thoughts turned to Bill.

    Four hours ago, Bill Meacham and George Henly had arrived at the canyon which held the big secrets. The Toyota left, and they walked the last few hundred yards to what looked to Bill as a plain sandstone wall, which abruptly extended vertically up several hundred feet. George grasped Bills arm and they stepped into the cliff. INTO the cliff.

    Inside was a well decorated room, with tables, computers and several scurrying military orderlies. George led Bill into his office, ordered coffee for both of them and leaned back in a huge desk chair with a hint of a smirk on his face.

    One wall of the office was entirely of thick plexiglass, beyond which appeared to be nothing but a tunnel into the rock. As Bill picked up his cup of coffee there was a tapping on the plexiglass, Whereupon Bill turned and immediately dropped his cup full of hot coffee in his lap.

    George, smiling, said…. Bill Meacham, meet my good friend, Anu…

    To be continued….

    Great morning HotCoffee. I hope your Christmas was a good one. I know the weather seems to be wanting to replenish all the low reservoirs on the West Coast but I hope you got a break so it didn't mess up your plans.

    It's 30° and I am back from a four mile walk. I had a radio in my ear wondering if the leftie/socialist Trump hate radio had died down but it clearly hadn't so back to music and podcasts. I thought it would take even a few minutes to reflect on anything good but obviously, the old saw "when a leftie comes into the room they suck all the positivity out of the air" was proven to be true. What a miserable life they lead.

    Maybe some snow tonight so the snowshoes are by the door.

    Enjoy your day,

    Maybe later.

    Morning HotCoffee. This may be my last post because of the government shutdown. I think Al Gore was part of the government was he not?

    Speaking of the government shutdown,

    It is a great time of year to be home with the kids and enjoy the holidays. Everybody gets paid so for most, it is extra paid vacation time.

    The people it grates are those that already had applied for all the days around Christmas and New Years as vacation days.

    The deplorables will embrace their time off with their friends and relatives, go to church, and clean their guns.

    The alt-lefties will have an additional 12 hours per day to hang around forums and complain about Trump.

    We non-government workers will not notice anything except the much easier commute to work.

    Gotta post this,

    "To My Liberal Friends:
    Please accept with no obligation, implied or explicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low-stress, non-addictive, gender-neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasion and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all. I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2019 but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make America great. Not to imply that America is necessarily greater than any other country nor the only America in the Western Hemisphere. Also, this wish is made without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual preference of the wishes.

    To My Conservative Friends:
    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!"

    Hey HotCoffee, bad time of the year for power outages. I just had my generator worked on and bought a spare carburetor and other minor spare parts.

    Interesting how the lefties all screeched when Mattis came on and Now he is their favorite. Same thing with Trump pulling troops out of the mid east and suddenly they are gung ho how for a war with Turkey. How they look at themselves in the mirror amazes me.

    Catch you tomorrow, Merry Christmas

  • The Thom Hartmann Program - Aug 30th 2018   21 weeks 3 days ago

    Hey DianeR,

    Geez been a crazy week in the woods. After catching this cold while shopping for Christmas PG&E our famous electric company had a equipment failure and the power was out here for about the last 23 hours. The old Honda generator is a pain in the butt so we usually just ride it out...gotta get a new one.


    Sorry, Lefties And Never-Trumpers, But Mattis Quitting Isn't A Crisis

    Mattis Quits: The departure of Gen. James "Mad Dog" Mattis is being treated as an epic tragedy, a crisis, with some even suggesting President Trump should be impeached. Calm down. Mattis was, in our opinion, a great defense secretary. But Donald Trump is president.

    It's funny how unhinged the lefty-dominated media have become over Mattis' departure. Even that bastion of foreign policy expertise, Rolling Stone, weighed in. They've all treated it as a crisis. It is no such thing.

    As a basic reminder, Trump, like it or not, is ex officio the U.S. commander in chief. That means his decisions, for better or worse, are what matter when it comes to military engagement (of course, Congress has the ultimate power to declare war, but it has mostly relinquished that power to U.S. presidents of both parties).

    Mattis was blunt in his resignation letter, not surprisingly, suggesting that he had too many policy disagreements to continue serving: "Because you have the right to have a secretary of defense whose views better align with yours ... I believe it is right for me to step down from my position."

    later...I hope!!

    Good morning HotCoffee, the homeless problem in CA has spread to Portland and Seattle and a few other liberal run cities like Minneapolis. Weak mayors and governors permit this stuff and it spreads. Thanks to Trump there are more jobs than people so I am not as sympathetic with the "homeless" as I once was.

    Here is an interesting development on my favorite little socialist, Bernie Freeshit Sanders,
