Late Night: One Thing the Shutdown Was Good For

Farewell, panda-cam and octopus-cam, much beloved perks from the National Zoo which went dark with the government shutdown. Yosemite is closed on its 100th birthday, tens of thousands of government employees are out of work. It pretty much sucks. Except for this:

A planned Ku Klux Klan rally at a historic landmark of American history won’t happen due to the federal government shutdown.

The Confederate White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan event at Gettysburg National Military Park was approved  for Saturday, October 5. But the gubmit went and canceled their all-white sheet-head party. Clearly it’s some grand conspiracy engineered by Obama and libruls to keep them from rallying. Eleventy dimension chess, ya know.

Park officials  granted the permit because

they have a responsibility to make the land available for citizens to exercise their right to freedom of speech, even if the views expressed are contrary to those of most Americans.

The Republican-orchestrated shutdown of all non-essential government services caused the park to rescind all permits.

Meanwhile the San Diego Zoo offers live panda-cam.

Maledictum Supra Westboro Baptisa: WBC Getting Bitchslapped on the Astral



So many millions are disgusted by Westboro Baptist Church, and even more disgusted than normal this week by the psychotic nutbags’ attempts to protest the funerals of those slain in the Sandy Hook massacre. Anonymous has been busy DDOSing the WBC website and otherwise messing with WBC in their own inimitable style; and a petition has been sent to the White House calling for the recognition of WBC as a hate group and to be stripped of their tax exempt status. Even the Ku Klux Klan loathes WBC:



And now, on the Winter Solstice, a day held holy in the vast underground river of religious practitioners in the United States and abroad who worship in the Old Ways through magick, witchcraft, and other occult means, an ecumenical malediction on Westboro Baptist Church has been called down. Posted by The Sensei on Facebook:

Brothers and Sisters of ALL TRADITIONS: for too long, we have sat back and done nothing, while Fred Phelps and his Westboro Baptist “Church” have hidden behind the Constitution to spread their message of hate. These attention whore hatemongers have disrupted and desecrated the funerals of our fallen war heroes, and innocent people whose only “crime” was being Gay/Lesbian/Bisexual/Transgender. Now they plan to set up their “protests” at the funerals of the victims of the Sandy Hook tragedy. Join me, as we take action as only we, as Magick users, can.Starting at sundown, on Friday, December 21st, the longest night of the year, LET US RAIN DOWN NIGHT AND HELL UPON WESTBORO BAPTIST!!! Curse them, bind them, crush them utterly, as one group mind throughout that long night, so that with the rebirth of the Sun, a Golden Dawn shall, indeed, arise.You, your friends, your covens, can make a difference. Even if you only offer up prayers to stop Westboro from further perpetrating their evil, you can be part of an event that can make a difference.

So far over 60 participants and groups in the U.S., Mexico, and Canada have acknowledged that they will be praying, lighting candles, and casting spelling within their traditions to being an end to the Phelps’ reign of hatred (and that’s not counting those who are practicing anonymously). Not all occult traditions advocate destroying enemies (some go for binding bad folks to prevent further harm, while  others work to dissolve their negativity), the results should be impressive. Some effects may be immediate, while others will take place over a period of time.

Astaru, Chaos magicians, Druids, Setians, Thelemites, Voudons, Wiccans and members of other traditions are all involved. I’m a practicing witch and doing my own thing for this project.

The bottom line: WBC are a huge embarrassment to all religions everywhere, and most certainly to Christians who hopefully will be praying as well for WBC to see the errors of their ways and STFU.

Love is Law, Love under will. Do what Thou Wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

Palin’s Pick of Attorney General Sure Loves the Ladies

“Rrrwwwr..lookin; good,” says Sarah’s pick

Alaska governor Sarah Palin’s pick for attorney general Wayne Anthony Ross is a real Renaissance man. Not only is he an art critic–penning critiques for the now-defunct Anchorage Times like "KKK ‘ Art’ Project Gets’ A’ For Courage",  and "Fighting For Old Glory On Battlefield Of Art,"–he stresses his firm believe in family values with essays like Norman Rockwell-esque "Fall Hunting Is A Family Occasion"

Ross also used language like "immoral" and "degenerates"  regarding gays and when it comes to pro-choice says:

I feel I have a good relationship with the good Lord (but) if I could overturn Roe vs. Wade, I figure I got my ticket.

But goldang it, now Leah Burton–a former citizen lobbyist who worked on behalf of families and children concerning child support, child custody, domestic violence, child abuse and sexual assault gave testimony  before the House Judiciary Committee  and wrote a letter to the Legislature stating hat she attended a meeting of DADS (Dads Against Discrimination, now known as Alaska Family Support Group) where the jovial Wayne Anthony Ross said:

If a guy can’t rape his wife, who’s he gonna rape?…There wouldn’t be an issue with domestic violence if women would learn to keep their mouths shut.

WAR–as his friend and foes alike call him–says he’d never use that sort of language.  In his response to Burton’s letter WAR wrote:

I am a bit old fashioned when it comes to women.

Along with denying Burton’s claims in a written statement, he told a story about  a mmber of DADS accusing him of being rude in a store–only it wasn’t him being a "boor." It was an imposter, and the videotape proved it! Huh wut? 

But Ross’ subsconscious attitude towards women popped when asked about Sarah Palin wearing Arctic Cat brand snow wear and leathers at the Iron Dog race kick off, making it look like she was endorsing the brand.

Republican Rep. Jay Ramras asked:

We have a governor who is provocative in a lot of her actions. Recently it comes to mind when she was in Fairbanks for the finish line of the Iron Dog (snowmachine race), she was wearing Arctic Cat gear, Arctic Cat leathers, while her husband …

Ross broke in.

"She was provocative. She looked very good in it, didn’t she?" Ross said.

 How leeringly gentlemanly and old fashioned….
