DEMOLITION DAYS, Part 47

continuing
As I was picking myself up off the shooter’s shack floor, I glanced over to the TV.
The ballplayers were all wandering around the field, looking skyward. Evidently, there was this hellacious explosion…even the television sports commentators were speculating as to what happened.
Whoops.
I looked out into the quarry. The wall that I had charged had receded some 75 feet.
There was rather a large amount of shattered, blasted dolomitic limestone now in the quarry. Enough, I found out later, for a full month’s worth of orders.
We never did find the blasting mats. I think they sort of evaporated.
Luckily, the quarry is essentially an open amphitheater in plan view; basically a big hole in the ground with vertical limestone walls. The shockwave of the blast that didn’t spend itself shattering the limestone into which it was housed, blew out laterally, hit the opposite quarry wall, rebounded, and then dispersed, rather energetically, vertically upward.
I set off car alarms for a 20 block radius.
There were no broken home windows, as the lion’s share of the shock wave was redirected upward.
Good thing there were no low flying zeppelins or dirigibles in the area...
I waited the requisite time to allow for any loafers. There were none, so I jumped into the nearest wheel loader and began clearing the quarry floor. Hell, I had to so I could open the front gate.
As I was clearing the floor, making pile number eight of the loose rock I had liberated, I heard the characteristic whoop-whoop of emergency vehicles.
I parked the wheel loader, opened the front gate, and raised the green flag. That was enough blasting for one day.
A few minutes later, three police cars zoom into the site. Two were local city cops, and one was a state trooper.
“Hi, guys!” I waved, “Nice day, innit?”
“Doctor Rock! We should have known.” One of the local boys groaned.
“Hey, I did call you beforehand, as per procedure,” I said.
Polack the cop walks up, just knowing I was responsible. “Yeah, but we didn’t figure on you terrorizing the entire city.”
“Polack! How goes it?” I asked.
The other local cop and the state trooper look to Polack, “You know this maniac?”
“Oh, hell yeah. For years. Don’t worry, the good doctor is mostly harmless.” He chuckles.
“Damn. OK. I guess everything’s OK. Just no more shooting today, please, Doctor. It’s going to take hours to calm everyone down.” He laments.
“Yes, sir. I’m done for the day.” I reply, snickering slightly.
The one local and state trooper depart, shaking their heads in amazement. This left Polack to follow me over to the shooter’s shack to mooch a cigar and whatever else he can find.
“Jesus Hula-Dancing Christ, Rock. What the hell was that? I was all the way out in Whitewatosa and heard you.” He asks as he sneakily snakes a smoke out of my case.
“Just some common chemicals in the proper proportions.” I snicker.
“Which were?” he asks.
I go in the back of the shed and toss him an empty container of one of the parts of the binaries I used. He catches it, reads the label, and drops it like a live grenade.
“Binaries? Fuck! Like what you used at the tower?” he asks.
“Yep. I used just a little more.” I reply.
“Little more? Damn, as I said, we’ve been briefed on the stuff. This shit’s nasty.” He shakes his head.
“Yeah. Fun, too.” I reply.
Polack grabs a Sprechler’s Cream Soda out of the fridge as I opt for a cold Cream Ale and shot of potato juice. Hell, I was done for the day, so…
We sit around and have a chat, just shooting the shit, as it were. Manly topics, so the conversation eventually steered over to guns.
“Hey!” Polack remembers, “That’s right! You fucking owe me. Let me borrow that fucking cannon you carry. I want to show the chief a thing or two.”
“Yeah, that’s right”, I agree, “When do you need it?”
“This Friday, after shift. It’s the monthly qualifiers for us.” He notes.
“Are pyromaniacs allowed in?” I ask.
“To observe? Sure. To shoot? Nope. Insurance regulations.” He says.
“What time?” I continue.
“1800 hours.” He tells me.
“I’ll be there. I’ll bring my gun and an assortment of loads. Hey, this could be fun!” I evilly smile.
“Doctor. You’re doing that thing again. You’re grinnin’ like a shithouse rat. You know how much that scares me. Stop it.” He pleads.
“No worries. Friday at 1800 hours.” I reply, grinning.
Polack slurps down his Sprechlers, snitches another stogie, and squeals out of the quarry in a cloud of dense dolomitic dust.
I arrive back at our flat, after stopping for two frozen custard Turtle Sundaes, to go. I give one to an appreciative wife and I ask her about her day.
“Oh, went shopping with Oma. Got the cutest shoes, and a new purse, and…oh well, never mind. You’ll see.”
Between bites of Turtle Sundae, she asks how my day went.
“Oh, my dear. I had a real blast.” I replied, not lying in the least.
Monday, after my first classes, I’m back in the faculty lounge, savoring a Greenland Coffee.
There was the usual instructor chatter when Dean Vermiculari walks in.
“Good morning, Dean!” I say. “Care for a sit-down and a coffee?”
“Good morning, Doctor Rock. Yes, please to both.” He replies.
I fix us both a fresh Greenland Coffee and return to our table. I hand him one and sit down to savor my soupçon.
“How was your weekend?” I ask the Dean of the College.
“Oh, very nice. Had a fine time catching some perch and crappie out on Lake Genever. I see you had a victorious weekend as well. Twice.” He smiles.
“Twice?” I asked.
“Well, your handling of the tower demolition made all the papers. Very, very well done, Doctor. I congratulate you.” He smiles.
“Thank you, Dean. That means a lot. Just doing what I can with what I’ve got. But twice?” I replied.
“It wasn’t front-page news, but I saw there was some, well, let us just say, ‘energetic activity’ out at the Silurian reef limestone quarry yesterday.” He grinned.
“Oh, yes. I had a job to do and well, as I always say: ‘Nothing succeeds like excess.” I smile back.
“Quite. This beverage you’ve created is really rather extraordinary, Doctor. Again, I thank you.” He tips his mug my direction in the age-old Midwestern salute.
“It’s a little recipe I picked up on my last expedition to the northlands. I grew rather fond of the concoction.” I replied.
“Ah, I see. Marvelous.” He smiles.
“Thank you, Dean. High praise indeed.” I reply.
“Which leads me to…ah, Doctor Rock. I have another favor to impose upon you.” He says, all serious.
“Yes, Dean? How can I be of service?” I ask.
“We, as you no doubt know, have many, many fine extractive mineral company connections. We actually receive quite a large amount of funding and endowments from them. They recruit here extensively for our young geoscientists. Now, since Dr. Pataariki has left for industry himself, I would like to appoint you as the College of Natural Sciences corporate liaison.” He explains.
“Indeed?” I replied, too stunned for words for once.
“Yes, indeed.” He continues, “It will require travel, mostly domestic, and delivering symposia at various companies on differing extractive geological subjects. You will also serve as host and university coordinator when they are present on recruiting tours. There will, of course, be additional remuneration to accompany the added responsibilities.”
I slurped my coffee, thinking furiously.
“Could I please first discuss it with my wife before I answer?” I ask.
“Oh, Doctor. Of course, of course. Take your time. I will not require a reply until… tomorrow.” He smiles, finishes his coffee, thanks me again, and toddles out.
“Yow, Es!” I exclaim, “This is one hell of an opportunity. It’s never before been offered to a junior professor. This will cement my tenure-track. It’s going to be a bitch with time, though. What do you think I should do?”
“Well, Rock, honey, I think you should do…” Es begins.
“No! None of that ‘do what you think is best’ stuff. I want your own thoughts, just like when I decided to go after my doctorate.” I explained.
“OK, then.” Esme looks all serious like she’s going to deliver a bipartisan political speech.
“Yes.” She says, firmly
“That’s it?” I ask.
“Yep. You asked I answered. We’ll make it work. We always do. You can’t let the Dean down. You will accept tomorrow without fear or qualms of your wife’s hesitations, of which I harbor none.” Esme proclaims.
“Did I ever tell you of the myriad reasons I love you so?” I ask.
The next morning I meet with Dean Vermiculari. He’s pleased that I accept and hands over to me the charter. Then the lists of company representatives, their contact information, and some other secret stuff that I can’t divulge right yet.
A raft of oil companies will be coming in the late spring semester, so I need to contact each and every one to solidify dates, times and positions for which they’re recruiting. But that’s for then, I have something more proximal for now.
I have a Friday appointment with Polack the cop at the town police shooting range.
I arrive spot on time with my Casull .454 Magnum pistol, in its carry bag, along with a small duffel crammed with Pyrodex, Tannerite, and selection of specialty loads I had Herman the German, the inveterate gunsmith, create.
Herman the German, his actual sobriquet, was this incredible gunsmith, craftsman, and all-around artillery specialist. Have any sort of problem with a rifle, shotgun, or pistol? See Herman. Gun holding too high? See Herman. Barrel warped? See Herman. Need solid gold projectiles for a certain one-off job? See Herman.
Herman the German can sort it out.
Just never ask him: “How?”
“Ach! I’ve lived so long to learn, and you want it free? I’ll fix it, you pay, but I am only one knowing how!”
Herman was a cranky old Kraut, and has lived here for as long as anyone can remember. Even my Grandfather had deferred to Herman when he had some particularly delicate machining operation that need special attention and was unique.
As far as anyone knew, Herman had no family, but was never at a loss for friends. He was one of the most popular, and well known, but still oddly really unknown, kind of mysterious, old bastards in the entire community.
Herman the German liked me because I could obtain for him certain high-energy things he couldn’t. All were entirely legal, but some were sort of out there in the gray zone.
He also liked that I was educated, as he held education in the highest esteem. He also liked that I was of German extraction myself.
I often made it a point to drop by with odd and unusual high-octane potables while never expecting anything in return other than a story or a shared cigar.
Herman created some special loads for my .454 Magnum, which he prized.
“I like your gun, Doctor Rock, it is so big! I can still see well enough to build things for it.” He told me one day over cheroots and Schnapps.
Herman was a character to be certain. It must have been the pixie in him to dream up some of the specialty rounds he created for me to share with the local constabulary.
He lived out in the county by himself in an old farmhouse. He had a full machine shop in his basement, complete with forge, metal handling equipment, and a firing test range.
He handed back my .454, rather solemnly.
“Doctor, I am afraid to say I couldn’t test all the special rounds I’ve created for you. I need to patch the hole in the cinder blocks in the downstairs range. Your gun punched right through the back…” he apologized.
Now, Herman does all sorts of work on the local’s deer rifles, the police’s ordinance and has even worked some with the Baja Canada National Guard. Some of the little novelties he’s dreamed up for me are the first to escape his homemade basement test range.
I felt oddly honored.
After proving who I was to the nice range officer, I looked around trying to find Polack.
“It’s 1550. Where the hell is Polack? I wondered.
“Rock! Over here.” Polack calls to me.
He motions me outside to the police department’s tactical outdoor range. I had thought all along he was referring to the indoors police target range. This might pose some problems.
The tactical range was a series of clapboard shacks, all setup and designed to represent some downtrodden urban inter-city landscape. There were a couple of junked cars, broken sidewalks, storefronts, houses, bus stops…in short, all things necessary to replicate the seediest sections of a settlement where malefactors live and breed.
The cops all run around this range, shooting at bad guy pop-up cut-outs and avoid the not-bad-guy pop-up cut-outs. They’ve got music blaring, firecrackers going off, all trying to re-create a shady deeply urban environment. Points are awarded by the accuracy of fire on the run, time to maneuver the course, and the ability of not gunning down innocent bystanders.
It is not the best place to test a .454 Cusall. This hand cannon recoils like a fundamentalist Christian being solicited for donations to Anton LaVey, shoots flames and incandescent gasses like Smaug after a hard night of drinking and a stop at the Taco Bell buffet, is louder than a dime-store Karen demanding to see a Manager, and more powerful than a Ghost Pepper suppository.
To quote Joe Piscopo: “It shoots through schools.” Especially faux-schools made of plywood.
A .32 or .38 cop special is the correct weapon here; even a 9mm is a little heavy. Enough power to make a serious dent, easy on control, light on the recoil…a good tactical weapon.
But, nothing succeeds like excess.
Polack’s Chief is running around, capping off his ‘big ol’ .44 Magnum, and making the valley echo. He punches considerable holes in the pop-up cut-outs, but has such a hard time handling the recoil, his score is barely passable.
Polack runs his test with his standard 9mm sidearm and qualifies easily. However, he’s nowhere near done with his Chief yet.
I suggest to Polack we have a shoot-off. And since a .44 Magnum bullet ‘is so close to a .454 Magnum’, which it isn’t…the .454 Casull generates nearly 85% more recoil energy than the .44 Magnum; that we’d need something other than holes punched in plywood to judge the efficacy of each.
We are literally just down the road from Max Yazzer’s farm and market. They’re the place you go for your Halloween jack-o-lantern. However, now, he has a surplus of melons.
I think you can see where this is headed…
I borrow Polack’s personal conveyance and run down to Max’s farm. I return with a trunk-load of elderly, overripe, cheap as chips, melons. Watermelons, Honeydews, Musks, and Casabas.
We place them in strategic areas on the course, five for the Chief to find, and five for Polack.
A .44 vs. a .454 melon-wise results in pretty much the same sort of mess: high-velocity fruit spatter. Although, the Chief was very impressed by the report of the .454. So, after running the tactical-melon course, clear demarcation of a winner was elusive.
OK, OK, clever dicks. How about this? A standing shoot-off? We’ll set up 3 melons each at 30, 20, and 10 yards. Beginning at 30 yards, your time will be until you take out all three melons. But, they’re not going to be in a straight line, we’re going to make them somewhat camouflaged. You will stand in one small demarcated area, hunt those miscreant melons, and bring them to justice. Fastest time and greatest display wins, as determined by the Police Peanut Gallery.
Polack and the Chief agree.
The Chief goes first and dispatches the melons, with a fair amount of spatter, in 15.3 seconds.
Not bad.
Polack is next. He wipes out all the melons and creates some thoroughly impressive displays with Herman’s ‘special’ rounds. Normal ballistics for the .454 are, for a 250 grain (16 g) bullet, a muzzle velocity of over 2,400 feet per second, developing up to 2,800 ft-lb of energy.
Herman’s hot loads are double that.
Polack wins the day on impressive high-velocity melon distribution, but misses, so close, with a time of 17.0 seconds.
Recoil’s a bitch.
Then there are Herman’s ‘specialties’.
The Chief is duly impressed and even comments that his ears are ringing even with the ear protectors. He asks to inspect the weapon. He is even more than duly impressed.
Polack knows what’s up and asks the Chief if he’d like to give a whirl.
Of course, the Chief can’t back down.
Polack loads the .454 with 5 of Herman’s specialties: hollow-point rounds loaded hot, compressed, and tipped with alkaline earth metals, like metallic sodium and metallic potassium…
We set up the nastiest, glorpiest, just barely-holding-together, overripe, laced with Tannerite (an impact-actuated low-explosive) watermelon at the ‘Concealed Carry’ distance of 5 meters.
We slowly fade back into the distance to avoid the inevitable ‘Gallagher reaction’.
The Chief fires one, and just nicks the top of the melon. Don’t laugh, with the type of recoil and heft of the sidearm, and tensing up in anticipation, it’s easy to be off the mark initially.
The second round impacts dead-center. Now, alkaline earth metals and water don’t get along really well. In fact, their relationship is explosive. Especially explosive when delivered at 2,900 feet per second.
The Chief catches a huge smattering of vitamin-packed watermelony back blast goo.
He’s not entirely happy. He looks positively grisly with all that blown-up melon schmoo on his nice, neat uniform.
He returns my gun and bans me from ever showing up at the police range again.
Polack is on traffic duty for the next month.
He figures it was well worth it.
Back at the flat, Esme is shaking her head and wondering if I’ll ever grow up.
“I may grow old, but I’ll never grow up.” I reply.
I see I have several missed phone calls. Ah, me; no rest for the weary. Back to company-university liaison duties.
After I had contacted these companies, I receive no less than 12 requests for symposia, talks, and seminars to be given to various level of industrial scientific employees in their respective companies.
I am now slated to give academic conferences on stratigraphy, sedimentology, and seismic structural geology to different companies in Houston, Oklahoma City, Denver, Casper, Corpus Christi, New Orleans, and Tulsa. In the next 12 weeks, I’ll be giving no less than 8 talks in seven cities.
I speak with Dean Vermiculari on how best to handle the situation. He understands and appoints two graduate student teaching assistants to handle my classes while I’m on the road. That relieves me of being physically there, but I still have to grade papers, compose lesson plans, and keep things running smoothly until finals.
Besides giving the talks, there’s travel to oil fields, production facilitates, manufacturing plants, hotels, restaurants while I’m in town…the pace is excruciating. I’m gone more than I am at university. Plus in my time back home, I’m still the ad hoc master blaster for the limestone quarry.
Then, there’s the companies arriving on campus, and the roles are reversed. Now I’m the welcome wagon and have to sort out the logistics of receiving the company representatives. I need to set up the colloquia to introduce the companies to the prospective students, arrange lodging, arrange passes for the university, transportation, “Meet-and-Greet’s, ad infinitum.
I knew this was having a bit of effect on me when I came back to the flat after one particularly grueling ordeal of canceled flights, full hotels, missed connections and lukewarm reception by the company workers.
“Hello”, I said, as I walked in the flat, “I believe you have a reservation for…”
Esme just stood there, wondering if I was having a laugh.
No, I wasn’t. I was completely hallucinating from road weariness, lack of sleep, jet lag, and total disorientation. This continued on for the next approximately 18 months.
Esme was beginning to have second thoughts about all this.
My teaching load was diminished by one whole introductory course. However, I was still flying hither and yon, delivering symposia, meeting with young geoscientists and getting to know the ins-and-outs of the Oil Industry.
I found it particularly fascinating.
Time marched on and it was once again it was the recruiting season. We had no less than eight oil companies visiting the university in their quest to swell the roster of their junior scientists.
I’m still busier than a one-armed paperhanger in a windstorm, but have settled into a groove of sorts. I know the company recruiters and they now know me. I’ve actually struck up friendships with several. Particularly since I take them to the best local restaurants and bars after their recruiting duties are finished.
I’ve met with recruiting representatives of Shrill Petrol, Mexxon, Nobil, Nocono Oil, Flug, Geddy, Brutish Petroleum, and Qexaco.
The recruiting season is winding down and I find myself with Red (not Adair), of Nocono Oil.
“Well, Doctor Rock”, Red states, “Another fine recruiting run. We’ve snagged two of your young geologists and one geophysicist. I’d say it was almost a perfect score.”
We’re sitting in the Norton’s Steakhouse. After a couple of prime pink porterhouses, we’re working on the post-dinner double vodka and bitter lemon for me, and Lagavulin for Red.
“Almost perfect?” I ask.
“Yeah. There’s been this one small nagging concern from our company higher-ups.” Red continues.
“What’s that?” I ask.
“We need some more senior people. For one thing, we’ve recently opened a new petroleum laboratory down in our Houston office. Going to need some serious talent to run that show.” Red says.
“I see”, I reply, “And…?”
“We need mentors. Those with varied and far-flung knowledge. They must be well educated, global in experience and stature, with an [ahem] diverse set of skills.” Red notes.
“Whew”, I agree, “That’s a tall order. You want my help with names of possible candidates? Is that it?”
“Not as such, Doctor.” Red drains his drink, motions for me to do the same, and orders another round.
Our drinks arrive and Red downs half his in one gulp.
“Well, then”, I continue, “How can I help?”
Red chuckles, “For someone so educated, you can really be thick as two short planks at times.”
I sit back, and sip my Old Thought Provoker.
The mercury-vapors light off.
“No!” I say, incredulously.
“Oh, yes.” Red smiles.
“No?” I ask, slowly taking in the possible effects of what he’s hinting at…
“OK, Doctor Rocknocker”, Red gets all serious and corporate, “We’d like to offer you a position at Nocono Oil as Senior Laboratory Manager and Head of Corporate Continuing Education.”
You could have knocked me over with a grenade. I was stunned. I fumbled with my drink.
“Red, you old con artist” I reply, “Is this a set-up?”
Red, serious as a heart attack, looks directly at me and replies, “Doctor Rock, absolutely not, it’s a genuine offer.”
He slides over a folder with some papers inside. “Here are the particulars.”
Reeling, I accept the folder. I open it and right after the corporate logos and legal bullshit, I see a tall figure with a whole raft of zeros trailing behind it.
I read furiously. The job would be both interesting and challenging. It would be in Houston, with travel and teaching at all other company outposts on a regular basis. I reexamine that figure from before and verify that I’m not now hallucinating.
The job comes with furnished, corporate-paid housing, incredible benefits, loads of opportunity for advancement, more opportunity to travel, really generous vacation time…
“Right. On the level?” I ask again.
“Yep.” Red bluntly says.
“Well”, I gulp, “you know I have to discuss this with Esme”, whom he’s met several times previous.
“Of course, and you probably want to finish out the semester, correct?” red asks.
“Oh, yes.” I reply. There would be a monsoon of paperwork and other grunt work I’d need to conclude or hand over if I were to accept this offer.
“OK, then”, Red finishes his drink, motions for me to do the same, a real rarity; but I was in another dimension at this point. He orders another round and sits back, waiting on a refill.
“You have two weeks to reply” Red states.
“I know that’s not a terribly long time, but we need to fill this position ASAP. Can I ask for that? Your answer, yea, or nay, within a fortnight?” Red demands.
“Yes”, I reply. “I at least owe you that.”
And that was the end of the discussion for the night about me joining the private sector. We stayed a few more hours, chatting, smoking my cigars, and discussing everything but the lumbering elephant in the room.
We part outside as I need to head back to our flat. Red wants to go downtown to one of those “Gentleman’s Clubs” he’s heard were so famous at the time.
I was flummoxed the whole cab ride home.
It was late when I returned, but I simply had to wake Es with the news.
“Rock, for pity’s sake, its 2 o’clock in the morning!” Es protests. “Can’t this wait until later?”
“Sorry, my dear” I reply, probably as serious as I ever had with Esme. “This is a potential game-changer.”
“What is it? Are you OK?” Esme trembles.
“Oh, I’m fine. Better than fine.” I reply.
She’s relieved.
“Then what’s so important?” she asks.
“Um…how would you like to move to Houston?” I ask.
“You going to teach at Cougar High (University of Houston)?” she inquires.
“Nope. Brace yourself. I’ve been offered a job with Nocono Oil.” I finally spill the beans.
Esme is slightly stunned and sits down.
I go to the wet bar, fix me a bracing potato juice and citrus and Esme a stiff white Zinfandel.
I hand her the wine and she is still semi-dazed and digesting the information.
I slurp a good portion of my drink, retrieve her Sobranjes and me a cigar from my Turkmenistan humidor.
I sit on the couch next to her and hug her soundly.
“Esme? Es? Earth to Es? You in there?” I joke.
“Oh, Yeah. Rock. Really? Hang on”, she leaves, returning with her housecoat as this might take a little time.
“So?” I ask, “Your thoughts. Now! Immediately! Initial reaction!” I try to jar her back into reality.
“Well, what do you want?” she asks.
“C’mon, my dearest. You know I hate that. No, what do you think? What do you honestly think?” I reply.
We both fire up our smokes, and I refresh our drinks. We return to the dinner table where Red’s folder lies.
“Es, here. Look at this.” I say, sliding the portfolio over to her.
She reads like a hungry man at a Vegas casino buffet. I can tell where she was stopped by something extraordinary.
“This is for real?” she asks, “Red’s not pulling a fast one?”
“Nope. It’s the genuine article”, I tell her, “He needs my reply within two weeks.”
“Rock, Rock…I just don’t know. It’s a lot to process at 0230 in the morning. Let’s go to bed and have a think in the morning. You have the luxury of at least that amount of time.” She notes.
“Right again, as usual”, I say, “Stuff it. It can wait.” We toddle off to bed.
The next morning, over Cuban omelets and Greenland Coffees, we sort through the particulars.
“Rock, it’s an extraordinary offer. But, do you want to leave teaching? I remember how you got all animated by Dean Vermiculari giving you the corporate liaison job and how that would improve your shot at tenure.” She notes.
“I just don’t know. I’m still shell-shocked.” I tell her. “Let me go to school and we’ll pick this up tonight. We both have work to do no matter what. Oh, bloody hell. I hadn’t considered your job. Another wrinkle in the mess.”
“Don’t you worry about that”, Esme smiles. “One catastrophe at a time.”
“I do so love you.” I hug her soundly. “Think I should mention this offer to anyone at school?”
“No. Definitely not.” Esme shakes her head. “Let’s figure this out on our own.”
“I agree”, I say, kiss her and depart for school once again.
The next week was a blur. Recruiting duties were dragging and I was being preoccupied.
Even my students noted the lack of in-room explosions lately.
I spend the next Saturday at the quarry, doing some small amount of blasting. I quiz the quarry owners about their progress in acquiring a new master for the quarry’s operation.
“Oh, Doctor Rock” they gush, “You’re doing such a fine job, we haven’t really looked. Why do you ask?”
“No particular reason at this time, I reply, “But perhaps you might want to begin looking”
The chinks in my armor were finally starting to show.
Sunday was spent out on Sliver Lake, with Esme and me chasing the elusive crappie, perch, and bucketmouth bass. It also gave us a chance to clear our heads from work, school and other such intrusions. We both needed a bit of downtime.
Later that night, after a meal of beer-battered fillet of crappie and perch on the barbie, we sit down at the dinner table.
The portfolio sits there, taunting us.
I get up, makes us both our drinks, sit down and declare that this is it.
“Es, darling” I say, “its nut-cuttin’ time. We need to make our decision.”
“You’re right.” Es agrees, “Time for risk-reward analysis. Get some paper and some pencils.”
We spend the next few hours listing the pros and cons of accepting the Houston position or staying here and pursuing my tenured professorship.
After several hours, I stretch, stand, and go to the fridge. I retrieve the bottle of Bollinger Les Vieilles Vignes Francaises I had purchased the other day.
I return to the table with the wine and the glasses, pop the cork and pour us both a glass of high-brow bubble water.
I hug and kiss Esme like I had just returned from a long, solo expedition.
“Esme, my darling. I’d like to propose a toast. First to us. Hа здоровый!”
“Cheers!” Esme replies.
“Secondly to Red, Dean Vermiculari, the quarry guys, Polack the Cop, and all the others that makes our life weird around here.”
“Seconded”, Es echoes.
“Finally: to Houston, Texas. Our new home!” I finally add.
The next morning, Dean Vermiculari peers over the top of his pince-nez glasses. He’s not looking overly happy with me right now.
“Why is it, Doctor, that everyone that receives the job of corporate liaison ends up going with corporate?” he asks.
“Perhaps it’s just the exposure to another world that exists beyond academia.” I reply, truthfully.
“Doctor Rocknocker,” the Dean gravely states, “I am not at all happy about your decision. We had great hopes for you here and you were riding right up the tenure track. Another five years and it would have been assured.”
“Five years is a long time, Dean”, I state the obvious.
“Yes, indeed.” The Dean replies frostily. “However, you are young. Perhaps you need to get this private sector nonsense out of your system, then you can return to academia where you belong.”
“Perhaps, perhaps”, I reply.
“Please, do consider this option down the road. You and your antics will be missed here, by students and faculty alike.” He says.
“I will, Dean, I promise.” I reply “However, for now, it’s time for my boot heels to be wanderin’.”
“Doctor, I will miss your strange and unique way of looking at life. I reluctantly accept your resignation at the end of the current semester and wish you all the best in your newest endeavors. Please remember us when corporate support for academia is mentioned in your new company.” he says.
“I promise you, Dean, I will not forget what I’ve learned here and what you’ve taught. It’s the least I can do,” I reply. “I will never forget my roots.”
“All I can ask”, he concludes. He stands to shake my hand. We shake and my audience is over.
I resign from the quarry a week later. They haven’t found a new blaster but wish me well on my new journey. I tell them I’m here until the end of the semester, so I won’t leave them high and dry.
I tell Polack the Cop about all the goings-on.
“Who the hell can I roust for beer and cigars now?” He whines. “Let me know when you get to Texas if they need any cops. I wouldn’t mind trying’ that. Hell, maybe a Texas Ranger!”
“A Cheesehead Ranger…?” I assure him I will and pass a box of cigars to him as a parting gift. He gives me a mayoral-signed get-out-of-jail-free card.
“Now you can drive that old Harley just as crazy as you want.” He chuckles.
“Thanks, Polack.” I say, shaking his hand. I didn’t have the heart to tell him I sold my bike a week earlier.
Red was very chuffed with the news.
“Snagged me a big one this time!’ He laughed, over the phone.
There was enough paperwork, considerations and decisions to be made to last the remaining time Esme and I had in-state until our move. Already, a moving company had arrived, done inventory, and was preparing for our move to Houston.
Esme resigned her position and decided she wanted to take some time off. She wanted to be a housewife, a colleague, and not have to work for once at an outside job. My new position allowed for that in spades. Besides with her credentials, anytime when she wants to re-join the workforce, there are myriad opportunities in the Bayou City.
We made the choice of housing out west of town, in Katy, Texas. We could have chosen Sugarland, Addicks, Greenspoint, Greenway, or the Memorial area. However, these west Houston company properties were closest to the job and largest in square footage.
My students got wind of my resignation and relocation. They threw me an unexpected farewell party at the Gast Haus. It was nickel-beer night and since they were footing the bill, it all worked out just fine.
I would miss the old place. The camaraderie, the seasons, the university; hell my home these last many years. I’ve been on many, many expeditions, but I always returned home.
Now, home was moving and was awaiting our arrival.
Esme and I said our farewells to our families as well. We were the first through college, the first ones to travel international, the first Doctor in the family, and the first to leave the state.
That’s a lot of familial firsts.
I had to keep reminding everyone it wouldn’t be the last. Hell, we’re just moving to Texas, it’s not like we’re off to Greenland or Mongolia…
[Gasp]
We saddled up Es’s old Chevy Nova, took one last, lingering look in the rearview mirror, and said fare thee well to our previous lives.
“We’ll be back. Someday. I promise” I told the city of our youth and young married adulthood.
We decided to drive to Houston because we had the luxury of a bit of time. We needed the stretch to chew over some interpersonal and private things on the way to the next chapter in our lives. Besides, the weather was good, the roads ahead open and clear, and Texas had no ‘Open Container’ law, yet.
We pointed the old Nova south and hit the gas.
A week later, we’re wandering around our new house in Katy, Texas. Our belongings, scant though they may be, arrived the day after we did. Esme and I spent the next couple of day rearranging the house, buying necessary domestic bits and pieces, and getting to know our new neighborhood.
First thing, though, Esme wanted to replace the old Nova. I concurred, but insisted we keep it as a second car and went out to purchase our first new car as a couple.
I wanted a Land Rover. We ended up with a glossy black Toyota 4-Runner. Close enough.
I was scheduled to show up at my new job the next Monday.
I had my own parking spot, complete with “Reserved for Dr. Rock” painted on the bumper block. I was shown my new lab and was introduced to my seven laboratory assistants. I was shown the catalogs I could use to order what I needed and went over the requisition procedures.
I was trotted around to meet the company CEO, CFO, CIO, VPs and many, many more company executives and managers. I’ve met with presidents and heads of state, I was impressed but not overly. They seemed like a more or less nice bunch of chaps.
Almost exactly five weeks to the day from our arrival in Houston, I come home, yelling “Darling, I’m home!”
Esme comes to greet me with a rib-rearranging hug. She tells me to sit at the dinner table, where my long hard day at the office drink, cigar, ashtray, and lighter are already set.
“How was work, dear?” she asks, sitting down with her Perrier water.
“Oh, it’s going great. The knotheads let me have an open-ended budget until I get the labs sorted just the way I want it. These guys pay their bills on time and I have carte blanche at Wards Scientific, and other supply houses. My crew is great, no interpersonal crapola, and hard workers. I can smoke in my office and no one dares give me shit about my cigars. I’m getting to know the exploration department quite well. They’re really interested in our expeditions and are more interested in my opinions of their new exploration directives.”
Esme just smiles and sips her water.
“Odd”, I thought.
“That’s great, dear.” She says. “I am so glad to hear it.”
“Me too”, I say, “How are you holding up after all these weeks alone?”
“Oh, I’m getting used to it.” She smiles.
And smiles. Beatifically. Glowing.
“What?” I ask.
“Remember what we talked about in the car on the way down here?” She asks.
“We talked about a lot of things…” I say, suddenly my eyes grew very, very wide indeed.
“Yes. You’re going to be a father. I’m pregnant, Rock.” Esme smiles.

  • [Day 182.1 - Hillary's Hackers, Awan Brothers Saga Deepens, Part 1 - YouTube]
    • Good to get back to the slides to sum up the reporting. A lot of knocking on doors and visiting places in the last couple of days so. Here's my conclusions:
    • What I see Hillary doing with ISI and business leaders is sort of the same thing Rockefeller did with the Pinkertons: in the same way that the Pinkertons cleared the rail lines for the Rockefellers and the robber barons--ISI is clearing the ratlines for Hillary, and that group of investors.
    • I went to Cleveland, I went to NY, to Chicago, to show these different places to Detroit, Toronto, Montreal, to show these different ratlines, and show how it was happening: how these ratlines were being created, how they were collapsing neighborhoods, streets, creating cheap real estate purchasing opportunities and that's what I want to talk about today. Which is using these ratlines to collapse neighborhoods, streets, taking advantage of local populations and then pushing them into lives of crime getting them involved in loansharking, getting them involved in drugs and so forth, and buying real estate on the cheap as the final coup-de-gras.
    • With respect to the Cleveland Clinic, I'm going to point out Tom Glocer. Tom Glocer is a longtime Hillary supporter: one of her key supporters in fact. He is one of the key people doing the real estate investment in NW, the lakefront properties, in Chicago, the NY area, as well as Cleveland area, and Michigan area.
    • Kind of is the: I would guess the real estate baron. Of course he's on the CFR, of course he's a trustee of the Cleveland Clinic.
    • Really this is the last step in this process of collapsing an area, collapsing a street: a hospital as a non-profit buys it, a lot of public money is then used to pay for the facilities that come in, whether it's hospice care, nursing care, cancer care all the different things the Cleveland Clinic does.
    • I take all the IP out and move that to Dubai do training of my poeple overseas to be doctors, not that it's not great to train doctors in the UAE, but I believe that doctors should be trained here in the Cleveland Clinic. We really shouldn't be worried that much about repressive regimes and their economies when they are swimming in money, if you look at the skyline of Abu Dabi you can see they aren't hurting for cash: they don't need more economic development from the Tom Glocers of the world.
    • Am I saying Tom GLocer collapsed the neighborhood on 185th and killed those car dealerships--those people running the car dealerships--for Hillary? No of course not saying that.
    • I'm just saying is that when real estate ppl like Tom Glocer create an environment where gangsters like Dawood Ibrahim, to allow Ibrahim to run an international crime syndicate in PK. He owns 9 homes in PK, he has been responsible for the bombing of Mumbai in 1993, 2007, 2017. Long time contact with PK ISI. Uses the PK 111th for all those bombings in Mumbai. Owns five star hotels in India still.. Owns 9 homes in PK. Huge investments in the UK. Now that Indian intelligence services is tryiing to get him out of India, he's investing now--through the Tom Glocers of the world, through real-estate investment trust--so there's a sanitation layer--into these areas that Tom Glocer is talking about.
    • When the Andrew McCabes of the world allow their friends to invest for any reason, any amount of money, no questions asked, where there's no check on the money laundering, it creates this type environment where you open it up things to gangsters. Al Capone said what one great regret do you have? "Well I probably should have bought a bank." He didn't think that to make bank profits, He said that because he wouldn't have been caught on tax evasion: he would have been able to cleanse the money.
    • What Andrew McCabe is doing is creating an environment where gangsters can invest in the United States. When you create investment opportunities for people like this they don't care when a nice couple who have been in business for 33 yrs get executed on 185th avenue. All they care about is building that casino on 185th avenue, or building that hospice care clinic; or building that new cancer clinic, or EM facilities; or some kind of drug rehab along that Golden Route on the way to Cleveland Clinic with Methadone centers and treatment centers.
    • It's impossible to predict the future, but from everything I see, it reminds me so much of Detroit, Toronto, Montreal, Chicago-- this is what creates the Homen Squares:
    • You create an environment where lawlessness--no check on International money laundering--and it's going to find it's way through real estate investment trusts, through the Tom Glocers of the world. And you're going to find that 185ths are going to be repopulated with some kind of Methadone clinic; Suboxone outpatient facility.
    • I wanted to draw that parallel today.
    • Again, I don't have solid evidence that Mr. Ibrahim here, who is a longtime friend of Benazir Bhutto btw, and built a home next to Bhutto's son and chums around with Bhutto's son.
    • I"m not saying this long-time Hillary supporter is directly investing in Cleveland clinic and his plans on the other side of lakeshore boulevard
    • I'm saying when you have a Mccabe not checking the International money laundering, letting Gulen have 43B dollars in Malaysian Banks with no-check, it creates the environment for the Ibrahims and Glocers of the World.
    • This morning I'm going to be going to a lot of the different crime scenes in Cleveland today and moving on.
  • [Day 182 - Hillary's Hackers, Awan Brothers Saga Deepens, Part 2 - YouTube]
    • This isn't the fun part of the job, let me tell you.
    • I'm at the Mr. Cars dealership again
    • This is the corner: you can see the blood spatter pattern where someone was executed. I believe that probably was where Mike was executed. I'm not sure, but the Dusenberg photo is awry just above the corner there.
    • Looks like he had some tools out, etc. I'm guessing those are his glasses
    • There's a broken chair in the foreground.
    • It looks like with the spatter pattern, there's a U shaped area of solid material in the corner, and lighter spatter on the right wall, and on the lower corner of the door there is a blood pool there as well.
    • So I don't know if that meant Trina was shot on the way trying escape to the back door--that's what the Police are saying
    • There are several things that don't make sense about this murder
    • First of all there was a dog, they owned a doberman
    • They were killed sometime between 7 and 10 o clock. The dealership was closed at 6 so why on a Fri night would they stay here much beyond closing? Hard to understand how they would stay much beyond 7 o clock if they were doing accounting and so forth. {{esp 33 yrs in biz, they'd leave right at 6:01pm, and do late-fri stuff on monday}}
    • The other piece to this is: wouldn't the dog start barking? If you had 2 doors, one here and one over there--wouldn't the dog start barking if an intruder was coming into the location? Wouldn't someone have heard on a Fri night (if the dog started barking). This street was at one time fairly popular for pub crawling.
    • It would still be light out, it would still be 7 o clock--that doesn't make a lot of sense.
    • Then there's the question of the mercedes. Why did the story change from the mercedes being stolen, to a 1990 Tahoe being inserted later on that was sold the prior week. The cobalt 2006 mercedes seems like it's still a part of the story, and somehow has been dropped from the story.
    • The other question still remains why did the BMW that was taken from here and went 100 blocks and was recovered in a police-stop. And the person who was stopped had a series of prior-arrests...why was that person let-go by a lowlevel police officer, rather than their name and picture being published?
    • If a person had that car, it's hard for me to believe they would have had papers to show they had purchased it. And even if they had, what would have stopped the killers from asking for purchase paperwork and backdating it before they killed the couple?
    • It makes sense to me that the thieves/burglars would steal a late model mercedes. It doesn't makes sense they'd steal a 1990 Tahoe.
    • The other piece to this that I'd like to see more information is the autopsies. Whether Trina was raped or not in the backroom. I believe 4 or 5 different people were involved in this. And somehow separated the two, acted as car buyers potentially, knocked on the window, gained entry somehow.
    • You still have the issue of shooting the dog, the dog barking, there's a tremendous amount of commotion, you can see the chair being broken, pieces all over.
    • If you look at this neighborhood, this is quite out-in-the-open. This is all glass [store front is all large windows], in every direction. There's also a garden center [which is also a hydroponics store] -- they would have been able to see across the street from 7-10 o clock, I can't imagine friday night, them not being open.
    • People would have passed by here. People would have been making phone calls. Cellphone records have not been released.
    • There's a 7500 reward here. Of course I will never accept any money of any kind, I will only donate it to Judicial Watch if the killer is found
    • I believe we have to solve this crime and bring back some civility to these cities.
  • [Day 182 - Hillary's Hackers, Awan Brothers Saga Deepens, Part 3 - YouTube]
    • I'm at a bird sanctuary in Toledo OH up on the Lake Erie and I used to come up here to Cedar Point near Sandusky, so this is a bit west of the on the way to Toledo
    • Looking into the car dealer that was associated, near the Cleveland Clinic--even if that is a completely unrelated case to anything having to do with Hillary Clinton and the ISI, one of the things I knew going into it was one of the board members Tom Glocer was a money-mover.
    • He moves money and he moves technology to Dubai.
    • It just doesn't seem right that a key guy on the board should be moving so much technology and money to a foreign country. Especially a foreign country that is so wealthy like Dubai. With some of the tallest buildings in the world. It seems odd there's this back and forth with the doctors. It seems odd that there's this organ harvesting traffic in Turkey and Iran and the northeast corner of Iraq. The ratlines just stink to high heaven.
    • So any time I see a guy like Tom Glocer on the board of a large medical institution--a guy who ran Reuters, and took every Reuters investment advisor and ran them through Ann Arbor, Michigan to try to convince them how tax-free real estate investments in the US was the best way to go bringing in people from all over the world--then I also have my doubts.
    • Tom Glocer also I believe has two daughters that are each married to--I'm not going to say PK ISI--but definitely Dubai-connected Pakistinians. **One of them might be Javed's son. Mr. Riceland, Sugarland Express.
    • So in all these things, when I start these out, I know there's an end in mind--I know there's a connection. And I'm trying to find it through connections and leads that may help solve murders and stop this kind of ghettofication of our cities to be sold out to other countries.
    • I want to thank everybody who helped in the Kuznik murder case. Another 5k has been added to the reward. If anything we've added some light instead of just heat or just emotion to an investigation.
    • This is how it's done. This is the success to me of opium medium research {{erp! George fumbles with a funny spoonerism}} -- "Open Media Research" also. Sometimes you have to research "Opium" to do "opium medium research" I guess {{ haha, George you're the best }}
    • On to Michigan
  • [Day 182,4 Hillary's Hackers, Awan Brothers Saga Deepens, Part 4 - YouTube]
    • I feel good about this trip to DC, NY, Detroit, Montreal, Toronto--I feel like the hard part of this is done
    • When Glocer at Cleveland Clinic, it really comes back to what I call the "Dubai ISI"
    • Imran Awan--and if there are other Awan brothers--they really not Pakistani ISI. I had that impression in my mind, but it was too big an entity for them. They really don't care anything at all about Pakistan. Every action that I've seen, it's really this club of tight, rich kids running around using spy tools that John Brennan and Andrew McCabe has given them for a very small Emirate within the UAE, a super-rich element of cocaine-snorting, model-dating rich kids.
    • I was wrong: I thought this was a Pakistani ISI thing, but it's really a Dubai, or to a lesser-degree an Abu Dabi ISI.
    • A little bit of money goes back to COMSATS, a University in Lahore, PK
    • I think the father, Mohammed Shah, had a lot more care and concern for Pakistan.
    • But the kids don't..I've seen ZERO concern for PK. And so I apologize to PK ISI, they helped us defeat Russia with the Mujahadeen with Graham Fuller: This is really the Dubai ISI with Glocer.
    • I feel like the Dubai code has been cracked.
    • The Cleveland Clinic code has been cracked. I think now the Mayo Clinic will come quickly, Temple University will come quickly, Johns Hopkins will come quickly.
    • All the major organ harvesting ratlines will come quickly, all the major the sex trafficking ratlines will come quickly.
    • I feel really good about that.
    • At this point I feel, if Andrew McCabe decides to take me out of the deal {{ ie: ⌬McCabe⌬ has George 'suicided' or killed }}, the hard part's done--I feel like we're post-Gettysburg now. The easy stuff awaits us.
    • Because, before yesterday, I was talking about Cleveland Clinic--which is 24 board members
    • Today, I'm talking about one particular board member who sold out the United States, who moved money in massive quantities and processed it, and laundered it through Dubai, through Abu Dhabi and brought it back to the United States with these tax-free re-developments, using these hospitals to buy up this land.
    • Al Capone used to set off bombs in bars that wouldn't buy his hooch. Toward the end, he started killing these mom and pops that wouldn't buy his hooch and that's when he collapsed. It's kind of the last gasp of a dying empire.
    • I believe the Cleveland Killings, the Kuznik killings is really the last breath of a dying empire--when you have to kill mom and pops you're on your last leg
    • I feel very good about the trip. Like I said if McCabe takes me out at this point, I feel like it's just a matter of time for him.
    • I remember at the end of the Nuremberg trials, it was a lot fewer people than you thought--it was a lot of people taking orders, a lot of people being intimidated, a lot of people following orders, really was a very small number of people who ended up in the trials, under 150, and I think only about 30-40 actually got prosecuted. I think it's going to be the same way.
    • We're down to individuals now. We're beyond FBI Counterterrorism--it's such a small clutch of people within the FBI counterterrorism now, with McCabe and his clutch of people, with Brennen and a small clutch within CIA.
    • So at this point we're just adding a preponderance of evidence.
    • We're kind of a Nuremberg trials for a lack of a better analogy.
    • That's all for today and tomorrow will be another day
  • [Day 183.1 - Hillary's Hackers, Awan Brothers Saga Deepens, Part 1 - YouTube]
    • Quick recap -- I'm not 'retiring' just retiring from Sunday yesterday.
    • I want to keep going to RT because they can't keep blowing up Parliament every day that RT writes a story about this. It just can't happen. I think everybody might remember the last time--what happened they turned the lights out in NY
    • I think RT's the one to run with this, since they are the ones being attacked
    • I think John Brennan is gonna be the loose thread here. It's going to unwind Mr. McCabe pretty quickly and then the whole thing falls apart.
    • What's great about the Dubai and Abhu Dhabi connections and getting away from PK is all the money connections--this is where the other side of the drug business is coming. This is going to be the Javed side of the business.
    • Looking at the PK side was a little confusing. I should have thought of Zero Footprint and Timber Sycamore coming out of the UAE from the very beginning
    • I kind of gave Imran too much credit. Not looking at the fact he was playing the role of the playboy and all these parties at the UAE
    • I had talked to witnesses who knew this group of 36-40, however many it was. I believe I've identified one of the members of the gang--the PK 111th, and I should have listened. The callous disregard for life, the parties, the cocaine, the girls, the fast cars, all that stuff--I should have listened to this source in Montreal more.
    • I wanted to go back to Tom Glocer he's going to be the key, not only through real estate investments--the arab real estate investment in the Hopitals to launder that money, but he's also going to be the key to the drug companies' investments--he used to work at Merck. While he was at Reuters he brought in all these people from the middle east, at least investment advisors from the middle east to try them to buy into Hospitals to launder the money. I talked about the different ratlines. I'm sure that the hospitals would bring in related businesses around the hospital, like the pain clinic, the spine clinic, the knee clnic, the outpatient clinics, the imaging clinics, all the 'Christmas tree of businesses that come along with investing in the hospital'.
    • What I wanted to say also is to introduce Sheik Zayed. He's one of the Emirates, basically families that didn't get to be king of Saudi Arabia in Abu Dhabi. He was one of the Emirates--Dubai has their own Emirate.
    • Sheik Zayed was the one who came up with the idea: in order to get on the map of US Intelligence, let's organize, and unite as these Emirates, and become the UAE.
    • His sons are going to be the 2 key investors now--[Sheik Zayed is] dead now--through Glocer, in laundering the drug money.
    • Over here you have Dawood Ibrahim doing the dirty work, and then moving the money through the UAE
    • This is the part I love in the research. It focuses the research. The research gets better with more citations. Once the working model becomes solidified and valid, the research becomes even better--it's like a refining, electron [microscope] zooming in on the truth.
    • The other great part about this is the Democrats want to keep this issue alive. They still want to have Imran Awan working for Debbie Wasserman Schultz doing the hacking. This is a current problem today as I speak. It just draws more and more attention
    • The fact his younger brother was paid 160k a year at 22 as a foreign national, is a glaring problem. If nothing else--if we stop right here, this is a midterm election issue for all these Democrats {{ corruption, selling out americans, and waste }}. And they just keep hitting their thumb with the hammer over and over again.
    • Nanoset technologies--there's more there but I won't ruin the fun
    • We also have more coming in on all the proprietaries they created, so the Entity analysis, people doing the link analysis I want to thank you--that's coming, we just can't go there just yet.
    • The Entity analysis and linking with Nasir Khattak--he's the guy who had the car dealership directly next to the car dealership owned by the Awan brothers. Literally right next to it--it's an obvious front. They changed the address patterns so you couldn't find it. It's so cheesy.
    • Mr. Solyndra II here with his Microtron company: he's going to be the key to a lot of the business investments--not the Hospital investments--but more the business investments, the high tech investments, bringing in the money through Reuters, and other overseas advisors into the US, and then laundering.
    • Whatever happened to Omar Awan? Haven't forgotten about him, but he's completely moved out of his commuter home in Manassaas. He's moved out of his Fredericksberg home where his kids were going to school--that's a big deal. That's the wife as well as the 3 kids--they were going to Fredericksberg HS--why the flight to NY? I believe he's working in the investment banking community now.
    • The bounce between NY and DC, depending on where the heat is, is usually the operative thing that's going on there--Schumer will hire you up there to get out of the heat...when the heat's gone then you go back to DC and do more hacking / bring more people in
    • On the EBT Card thing: you're going to find this all over the country, encouraging people who are addicts to come in, and get 50% on the card as cash--I"m not saying that's for drugs. I'm saying that take that and then go buy stuff from the convenience store. But what I am saying, though, is it's a network to recruit from. This is more the recruiting network for ratlines.
    • I didn't mean to let Graham Fuller off the hook yesterday. He did do Gladio B. I'm not saying he's without sin. Yes he did help Gulen move 40B to Malaysia, yes Hillary did move 1.5B to Malaysia.
    • I haven't forgotten about Detroit, I just don't have time right now
    • Last thing on the car dealership [Kuznik]. This car dealership murder is going to be the same as the Manassas Mahmood in Richmond: You're going to find an ISI guy hiring someobody like MS13, in this case I think it's going to be Somalis. Two Somali couples. One couple buys the BMW with the wife Trina, the other couple buys the Mercedes with Mike and distracts everybody. They shoot the dog and Mike first, then shoot Trina later in the back. The girls go outside during the shooting, they cover each door. The one couple takes the BMW down to 48th and Dennison and that's where Steve Stephens is going to kill them (they're going to find the bodies eventually). Then the other couple is encouraged to drive to Erie, PA for their payout, to go over state line to PA, and I think that's where Stevens kills the other couple.
    • Unfortunately, these these kids don't realize that when they get hired into these murder-for-hire things the ISI kills you at the end, the way that dead men tell no tales. So I think you're going to find 4 there.
    • So when Stevens said he killed 13, I think it's going to be those 4, and I think he did 8 before a year ago down in s. Ohio again with Somalis with the 8 Rhoden kiilings. If the sheriff down there would release the information and the tips, I could tell you whether it was MS13, Hells Angels, or Somalis. I believe it's going to be Somalis because that's in Columbus territory.
    • Anyway, I don't want to get into the John Kasich and his mother being from Yugoslavia, and the organ harvesting, and how that happens under John Kachich's nose in Columbus
    • I just want to say it is the Somali gangs. Again these are kids brought in from a war torn situation, they are 5-6 yrs old, they are forced to execute people, they've killed 20 people by the time they're 12, so they're perfect people to bring into the US as operatives.
  • [Day 183.2 Hillary's Hackers, Awan Brothers Saga Deepens, Part 2 - YouTube]
    • {{ minor correction for clarity's sake: George says 182 part 2, it's actually 183 part 2 -- these videos are single-take so bound to be errors like that}}
    • Fort Wayne, Proof of life -- as Obama is talking at the University of Chicago, I hope someone asks about my brothers with a little bit more melanin than I, and why they are disappearing in such numbers at Homen Square.
    • This is a shoutout to UC kids: ask about Homen Square.
    • Why didn't he shut it down?
    • What's going there?
    • Does he have any ideas?
    • Homen Square: ask the question
    • Other things I wanted to say was in terms of this search engine.
    • Watch this search engine go now once we focus on two key terms, "Glocer" "Zayet" {{"Zayed" ?}} family from UAE
    • Watch this incredible search engine that you've all created go to work and bring out all the different hospital contributions and expose all the money laundering and ratlines
  • [Day 183.3 Hillary's Hackers, Awan Brothers Saga Deepens, Part 3 - YouTube]
    • Andrew McCabe just spoke at the CSO Summit 2017, so I wanted to send this to #CSOSummit17
    • He spoke about law and order, he said, "you know at the FBI we focus on the law and facts"
    • I know he's in charge of the Huma Server and the Hillary Server, so I also wanted to make him aware of the server that the Awan brothers had--these three Awan brothers that were working for Congress. This is Imran Awan but there are 2 other brothers as well. If you are not familiar with the case, I'll briefly review it for you.
    • AWAN RECAP
    • McCabe-McAuliffe recap; McCabe obstruction of Justice recap
    • So while we're lecturing on law and order and facts, I thought I would make Mr. McCabe aware of some of those facts
    • Why isn't FBI investigating?
    • US Marine testimony recap
    • So there's the facts, Mr. McCabe. Now it's your turn to decide what to do with them.
  • [Day 183.4. Hillary'Hackers, Awan Brothers Saga Deepens, Part 4 - YouTube]
    • I start thinking about Imran Awan's salary.
    • I wasn't always a self-funded journalist.
    • I had some good years selling computers and computer software.
    • I had about ten years where I was paid about what he was making in taxes, and I don't know if could cover all four brothers, four brother, the full four million or five million, but I could have covered Jamal's time in terms of the taxes I paid while he was in Congress because he was there only a couple of years making 160k. I paid quite a bit of money in taxes.
    • This is an odd situation.
    • The irony is that...maybe the poetic part of it.
    • McCabe sitting over at the FBI can order up surveillance, a deep dive they call it. ELSUR. They can order a deep dive on somebody that cuts across the Dyncorp backbone of 30 different agencies. If you owe taxes, if you own land, all your electronic communications, your email, your texts. Then they can throw the hammer down on an operation on you, with the harassment thing: hire private corporations owned by their brother, these 6922 independent, private corporations that Dana Priest originally reported on, that are supposed to be doing anti-terrorism.
    • This is kind of the deplorables list that Hillary had. Without doing an assessment--because it's a liaison operation, it's through a foreign service, I dont' have to report on it--so I can do the electronic surviellance, I can order up the harassment, do the disruption, and never have created a job.
    • Mr. McCabe has had public employment his whole life. He's never created a job.
    • Imran Awan and the brothers have only come to the US since they were 22 as foreign nationals, making 160k a year while everybody else in Congress is making 40% or 35% of what they're making I just thought this is interesting you know, it's an interesting turn of events. That's all I'll say for tonight.

(THEORY, possible spoilers) My two cents as to the bosses' themes.

Since Cuphead's coming out in less than 2 days, after listening to the OST so many times (as someone who loves jazz, it's so amazing), I've come to have the following thoughts:
What do you guys think? Any other suggestions?
