Liberal/Conservative Trends by State over the Last 20 Years

Big G: If the demos keep pushing gun control the Republicans will win. The only republican to win any contested government seat anywhere was over the gun issue.
Another William Playfair Web: certainly does cut into support of battlegrounds like Iowa, Virginia, N.C.
In W.V. that and coal are we are reddening by the hour.

She will win Iowa, Virginia and North Carolina. All three of those states are trending quite a bit more liberal over 20 years.
However, West Virginia is trending dramatically more conservative over the past 20 years. There are not a lot of states trending more conservative, but that is one of them. Tennessee is another.
Red states trending more conservative are West Virginia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Alabama, Louisiana, Arkansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Utah and Arizona. A few blue states are going a little more conservative, but they are still solid blue. I am thinking places like Massachusetts and Rhode Island are getting more conservative.

Latest from the Feminist Enemy: 8 Year Old Boy Charged with Molesting 14 Year Old Girl Babysitter

Here.

The 14 year old girl babysitter initiated the sexual conduct with the 8 year old boy. Yeah, he went along with it. What do you expect?

It just gets more and more insane all the time, doesn’t it?

Dr. Bryan Sykes study may well prove that Bigfoots exist. From multiple sources, I have now received the news that not only will the Sykes DNA study publish soon, it will also prove that Bigfoots exist. None of the sources would tell me this in so many words, but they certainly implied that the findings would be positive. So I am looking forward to publication of the study. On the other hand, it is possible though not likely that the sources are all wrong and the study could be negative.
Rick Dyer dead Bigfoot video is taking orders now. Dyer’s video After the Shot is now on sale for $129. It is said to contain 45 minutes of HD footage of the dead Bigfoot, Hank, that Rick definitely shot and killed in San Antonio, Texas last year. Rick says that the film was shot soon after the shooting by a film crew from a film company that he is associated with in some way. Rick says he had to pay the film crew $20,000 for their efforts.
He is only selling 100 copies, so he should make $13,000 off this video. Therefore, he is not even making his money back. Dyer says that the crew did an excellent job, much better than Rick could do, in shooting the movie, and that it looks very nice and professional. They will get 100 orders and then ship the video. This is so they can make at least $13K before the video goes viral on the Internet as they fully expect it to do.
The videos have not yet started shipping, so Dyer has not yet received 100 orders.
Each copy has some sort of markers on it to distinguish it from all of the others. Therefore, if anything gets uploaded to the Net, Dyer says he will know who put it up there he will sue the pants off them. However, almost no one is ever sued for uploading copyrighted content to the Web. The DMCA was written to avoid the lawsuit abuse associated with pirating videos. In general, a DMCA takedown order is issued to the website or whoever put the video up there. Youtube will ban you if you get three DMCA orders. In addition, Youtube protects its uploaders and will not give out their name to any copyright holders to avoid lawsuit abuse.
There is an extremely stupid and evil law that was written a while back that actually makes it a federal offense to upload copyrighted material to the Internet. Two people have so far been prosecuted under this idiotic law. One fellow uploaded a copy of a new Star Wars movie to the Net and Lucasfilm went after him.
Curious incident when someone pretended to order a copy of Dyer’s new video. Someone pretended to order a copy of the new video After the Shot and the order came up After the Hoax instead of After the Shot. The person who faked the order says they think Dyer got the title mixed up because he was working on some other video about the 2008 Dyer Bigfoot hoax. Obviously the skeptics are going to have a great time with this news!
It is recommended that Dyer skeptics get their hands on the video. The skeptics insist that this video is a hoax using a dummy prop as a dead Bigfoot. Although Christopher Noel and I disagree with that and feel that there is probably a real dead Bigfoot in the video, the possibly yet exists that this video may be a gigantic hoax. As the movie has not yet shipped, there is no evidence one way or the other whether this video is real or faked.
However, if it is fake and the skeptics can prove it, Dyer is taking a huge risk. He would be risking interstate commerce fraud for promising a video of a real Bigfoot and delivering a clever hoax. In addition, to the criminal offenses, Rick would be civilly liable and could be sued for damages in civil court by anyone who bought the video. I would like to see the skeptics get their hands on some of this video or stills from it at the very least so they can try to debunk it.
Rocky Mountain Sasquatch Organization catches possible Bigfoot on video.
[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8qu3b4JkiqY]
In this video shot in Rough Hollow, Utah by the RMSO, there are 38 seconds of a possible Bigfoot seen from 2:16 to 2:54. The Bigfoot goes from a crouching position to a kneeling position to all the way down on its stomach. The possible movements are very slow and deliberate so as not to cause notice. The possible creature is in dark black in the video and was not noticed until later on. Skeptics are saying it is a stump or a cave overhang or a shadow, but it appears to move. Do stumps, cave overhangs and shadows move while you are filming them? Overall, a good video.
Possible juvenile Bigfoot filmed in Havana, Florida on a game cam.
[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=tf0Mh9-tY94]
The video above just shows a still from the game cam. There is a very interesting shadow there that could well be a juvenile Bigfoot. It does somewhat resemble the Jacobs juvenile Bigfoot photo from a game cam in Pennsylvania. Those photos are definitely pictures of a juvenile Bigfoot. It can’t be anything else. This Havana photo may be a juvenile Bigfoot, and then again, it may just be a stump or a shadow.
Vladimir Putin believes that Yetis are real. Very interesting. Putin is the Prime Minister of Russia, and it is said that he believes that Yetis are real. We need more celebrity believers. I am quite certain that if Bigfoots are real then Yetis will be proven to be real someday too. A source close to the Ketchum Project told me that an initial male-female peaks study of a Yeti sample by Ketchum showed that they were related to Bigfoots but not the same species. The entire sample was used up by the quick and dirty test, and there was no more to test. Ketchum also stated herself that she believes that Yetis are real in addition to Bigfoots being real.

Craig Phillips witnesses Rick Dyer’s Bigfoot: the interview.
Rick Dyer’s head of security, Craig Philips, has been staying with Rick recently. Rick got a call saying that the body was going to be moved, and he asked Craig to come with him to see the body as it was moved. The video lasts 11 minutes, is very interesting and can be seen on Youtube. Christopher Noel has described it as “very credible testimony.”
Locale where the body is stored: He said once you find out where the body was kept, you would never believe it. It’s amazing that it would be kept in such a place. He thought it would be kept in some secret military place, but that’s not the case.
Heavy security around the building:Looking at the building, you would wonder why there is so much heavy security around the building, but apparently the owners of the body are not taking any chances.
Enlarged doors at the facility:Some of the doors in the facility appear to be too large for the building itself. It was as if they were constructed separately in order to house this body.
Small crane used to move the body: An interesting detail is that a small crane of the sort that is used to move extremely obese people was used to move the body. I thought that was an interesting detail.
Large truck apparently specially outfitted to house the body: He said that the truck appeared to be specially designed to house the body. There are hooks or rings in the sides of the truck to hold the gurney in place so it won’t slip around. Apparently whoever owns the truck went to great lengths to specially outfit it to house this body.
Presence of US government officials at the scene: US government officials were at the scene. Rick said that he and Craig wanted to observe the body being moved, and these officials nodded their heads to give the go-ahead.
Presence of emotion in Craig: Craig appears to show genuine emotion as he describes the body. At one point, he seems to tear up. Craig says he could not sleep the next day.
Body language: Craig does not look at the camera much during the interview. Instead he looks down much of the time. Make of it what you will.
The interview lasts 11 minutes. There is a large and extremely stupid COPYRIGHT RICK DYER watermark running across the video which seems completely unnecessary. The watermark is huge and runs right across Craig’s face for most of the interview. It pretty nearly wrecks the video.
One thing that is interesting are the curious details that Craig revealed above. Craig doesn’t seem like a rocket scientist, so I have a hard time believing that he thought up those obscure little details on his own. Is it possible that Rick thought up those fancy little details and fed them to Craig to say? That makes a lot more sense, but I wonder about even that. Rick made up a story about enlarged doors, a small crane and a specially outfitted truck down to the last detail? I don’t know.
Dyer skeptics may wish to watch this video too for whatever reason, as it’s part of the story. The skeptics are already saying that Craig is lying and just saying whatever Rick told him to say because Rick gave him a job and a place to stay.
Argument that Craig may be lying in the video. From the comments, an argument that suggests that Craig is lying for Rick:

Well, anyone can see the video now. Observations:

  1. Phillips never looks into the camera.
  2. There are many cuts, as though Dyer has prompted him with talking points like “in this part mention the haters getting their due.”
  3. It’s in a facility we apparently would recognize (“you won’t believe it”) but wouldn’t have expected, meaning it’s not a traditional military or government facility. (This is a familiar Dyer talking point meant to keep you from looking too hard.) However, there are a LOT of security people around, and they “may” have been there for the move or maybe they’re always there…what kind of place that would “surprise” you has a lot of security around normally?
  4. There were high-ranking officials who gave Dyer special permission to stay through the move after gesturing to him that it was time to leave. Why would that have been an issue? It just reinforces that Dyer has special pull.
  5. They used a crane to move the body like they use to move obese people, and rolled the gurney along under it? Why wouldn’t they just roll it out on the gurney?
  6. Lots of “special” stuff…special lift, special doors, special truck.
  7. He never ONCE describes the body. He just says he saw it and he was affected by it. How about some details to show you actually were impressed by it? Of course, you’re no Musky Allen.

Remember too that Phillips just got to Vegas, so he was suddenly a great person to make a corroborating video. Also, Dyer was supposed to be on a trip but got gout…very lucky he wasn’t on that costly trip when the body got moved, huh? And he apparently is getting around fine on those basketball feet. Beware of Dyer sucking people into a false close relationship and getting them to lie for him. He has done this for years.

Flood of fake information coming out about Dyer. Most of this stuff seems to be coming from the Dyer haters, who are flooding us with hoaxes, fake info and lies about Rick. At this point, Dyer’s haters are hoaxing more than Rick ever will in his entire life. Their reasons for doing this are uncertain. Are they trying to make Rick look bad? Are they trying to make me look bad? Are they trying to destroy my credibility as a “guy who will publish anything?”Are they just doing this for shits and giggles? I don’t get it.
Journalists hate scumbags who deliberately feed them false information. We want to see all their throats slit. They’re the scourge of the profession. The profession can’t even function when you have idiots flooding journalists with hoaxes, lies and fake information. It just destroys everything.
No journalist can ever hoax, knowingly participate in a hoax or deliberately spread lies (obviously this happens all the time in the political realm, so we will leave that part out for now). Once you do that, you are gone. No one will ever listen to you anymore.
Accusation that I don’t fact check my posts. This is an interesting accusation. This site just prints whatever rumors are flying around Bigfootery at the moment. We often don’t try to figure out if they are true or not. We just throw them out there and let you decide. With a lot of this stuff, there is no way to check it out anyway.
How am I supposed to check out a photo of the body storage site? I can only check it out with someone who has been there, and I don’t know anyone who has been there. How can I check out the fake photos of Rick’s body? I don’t know anyone who has seen the body, and those that have seen it, won’t talk. Furthermore, in this field, once you go to fact-check something, a lot of people are going to lie to you. So there isn’t even a good way to follow up a lot of these rumors, photos and whatnot. It’s a hall of mirrors and a miasma of fog.
No evidence that Dyer is moving to Santa Rosa. Although Dyer told Rhett Mullis in March that he was moving to Santa Rosa, the word now is that we have no way of knowing whether he actually intends to do that or not. Dyer is notoriously unstable and he changes his mind constantly.
Body has apparently been moved out of state and quite a ways away. The video above shows Craig Phillips witnessing the moving of the body. But we never knew where it was going. It turns out now that the body is going out of the state and quite a ways away. The decision appears to have been out of Rick’s hands and was possibly made by investors.
Story about the fake body location photo. I got this from Melissa Graeme, who is said to be a Dyer hater. We were really worried about her as most stuff from haters turns out to be hoaxes and lies, so we checked her out a lot. I worked with one of my colleagues on this.We talked about whether or not to run it and decided it was harmless to run the photo.
She told me she got it from someone who said they saw the body. It turns out that she got it from Greg Cannon, who she describes as close to Dyer. She is not sure why they gave it to her. She thinks maybe to see if she would pass it on. She now thinks the whole story is a crock because she says Dyer’s people are putting out fake information.
Perhaps Dyer’s people are putting out false info about the body location in order to throw people off the trail so to speak. Perhaps Melissa herself cooked this up to make everyone look bad, but that is less doubtful. This whole thing is a mess of smoke and mirrors and no one knows what to believe.
It is true that Musky has been putting out a lot of false information about the body location lately, apparently in order to throw people off the trail.
Who is Greg Cannon? Greg is the artist who did the first full length drawing of Dyer, so he is in deep with him. Why is Greg deliberately spreading fake photos of the body location?
Skeptic argument about why this is a hoax – the Dyer team is now lying as part of a “strategy against the haters.” Basically the argument is that now that Rick has decided its ok for him and his hanger’s-on to lie as much as they want to as part “the campaign against the haters,” this muddles up the story considerably. Once we know that Dyer and his followers are lying at least part of the time as part of a strategy, this tends to taint everything they say, and we wonder if this is a lie too.
I agree that it is most unfortunate the Dyer has convinced people that lying is a great idea as a way to attack the haters. This was a very bad move on his part and tends to taint a lot of testimony coming out of their camp. Similarly, profiting off this story was also a very bad move as it automatically throws up red flags of possible hoaxing with monetary gain as a motive.
From my comments thread:

The problem with this whole story is that – like you say – everyone in the Dyer camp says its OK to put out false info to cover the real info. Unfortunately that is a tactic of convenience for hoaxers, and now Dyer has all his team that’s left willingly telling lies because he’s convinced them its part of the game against the haters.
This characteristic of Dyer’s – being an extreme pathological liar and being able to get others to lie for him – is something you hear from people who predate this hoax and why so many people immediately wrote him off this time and have been so loud in opposing him. He has been known to get people close to him to lie if he thinks they are weak enough or worshiping enough to carry it out. I feel bad for Craig Phillips, who is Dyer’s latest discovery and is certain to find he has been used for Dyer’s own benefit.
Robert, I think if you reached out to some earlier Team Tracker members, from the old group, you might find that this whole story is following familiar patterns but with a new group of gullible followers who aren’t aware of Dyer’s extreme pathologies.
That includes the Facebook guys, who I have come to believe are victims. Musky, on the other hand, has been too involved in viciously defending Dyer and spreading disinformation (despite an “NDA”) to be let off so easily. Some of their radio banter is so rehearsed its laughable (“Hey Rick I just got photos Hank being loaded onto the truck!”), and he appears to have been assigned to Jack Barnes (and you, I dare say) as the “smart one” to keep everyone in line while Dyer goes insane.

My source at Minnow Films, UK. I broke this story on December 12, 2013 when I reported that a source working at Minnow Films UK told me that Rick Dyer had shot a Bigfoot during the filming of a new movie by Morgan Matthews. There had been some rumors going around for some time before, but nothing had been confirmed.
I have been asked how I know this source is real. I will tell you that is a woman, but I can’t tell you more than that as she fears for her job. She won’t talk to me anymore as she thinks I have leaked too much information anyway and I might get her fired. I don’t know she is real, and I never talked to her on the phone. All communications were by email.
Skeptics are saying that she may not even exist and instead it may just be Dyer playing a trick and pretending to be her. I think that is dubious. I have confirmed that a woman by that name works for Minnow. Furthermore, all her emails came from a minnow.uk email address, which I have confirmed is the email address that they use. I also traced the IP back to London, UK. I find it hard to believe that Dyer somehow spoofed a minnow.uk email address.
She originally leaked the story because she thought it was so important that she was upset that it was being delayed so long and she wanted to bump up the showing schedule. The movie was intended to be shown in November, and she thought that was way too long for such a killer story. As it turned out, the publicity engendered by my leak bumped the story up from November to spring.
Could she have been lying to get me to promote the film? I suppose, but that seems dubious. Could she have been misinformed about what really happened in the film. Maybe, but why would someone at Minnow believe that a Bigfoot was shot in the movie when that never even happened? Doesn’t make sense.
Argument that the Bigfoot in the Tent Video does not look like the leaked still out of Shooting Bigfoot. This is an interesting argument is used to say that the whole thing is a hoax. But that means that Rick had two different stunt men wearing two different costumes over a period of a couple of days. Two of the best costumes designed by mankind, too. Hard to believe. On the other hand, I have no answer to the question about why the Tent Video looks different from Hank in the movie, and neither do my colleagues who are also believers. It’s a good argument for the skeptic side.
Argument about “3 minutes of HD video shot by BBC of a Bigfoot.” Rick said that the movie would include 3 minutes of the Bigfoot in the Tent Video eating the ribs at the tree. That never materialized in the film, and people are now using this to say that this is proof that Rick is hoaxing.
However, when my Minnow source contacted me in December, she told me that there was 3 minutes of HD video shot at the time of the Tent Video, shot by the BBC (Morgan) in the next tent. So she told me the same story as Rick told. Why would she believe that footage exists if it doesn’t? Doesn’t make sense.
That both she and Rick independently agree that the footage exists implies to me that it does exist, but for some strange reason, it never showed up in the film. Why it never showed up, I have no idea, and it doesn’t make a whole lot of sense.
Photos of a dead moose and Bigfoot tracks from South Fork River, Utah in the Wasatch Range. Very interesting photos here. The first photo showed a moose with its neck broken lying on the ground. Bigfoot tracks were found nearby. Investigators went out and looked into the case and were excited about what they found. Almost the entire area is on private property.

This is the photo of the dead moose. Moose is lying on its head.

Bigfoot News Fourth of July 2013

Sasquatch Ontario Bigfoot videos. Some excellent videos from  Sasquatch Ontario. I believe I know this guy. At first I confused him with Ontario WFR (not sure what the WFR stands for). OWFR has a set of famous photos (Temagami photos) and a famous video (Go Pro video). I believe that both document a real Bigfoot. I have a lot of respect for them.
Another individual, Sasquatch Ontario, has released a new set of videos which are very important. I have talked to this fellow via email for a long time now. His name is Mike Paterson, and to be honest, he has a lot of enemies.
However, these videos show Bigfoot handprints, footprints, gifting and speech. The gifts include intricately weaved objects made of reeds. The speech is about as good as the Sierra Sounds.
The video below shows some excellent Bigfoot speech, truly superb.
[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ip1ntcXRfRY]
This video documents footprints and handprints, speech and gifting of some pretty amazing objects.
[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I0WFOTyUHko]
Here is another one with some great vocals. People say they sound like Yoda from Star Wars when they talk, and I think that is about right.
[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rV1Qa-qpkYo]
There are a few more videos in this series, and they are all said to be great. I haven’t been following the Bigfoot videos much lately as not much seems to be going on, but these videos from Sasquatch Ontario seem to be excellent.
I do not believe this guy is hoaxing. However, to be fair, Matthew Johnson’s group has accused him of being a hoaxer. But to be honest, Matthew Johnson is basically a flake and a kook in my opinion. I realize he is a psychologist, but he acts awful crazy in his public persona as the leader of a Bigfoot group. I don’t mean to say that he acts mentally ill. He simply acts like the typical belligerent, screaming, yelling, carrying-on, egotistical, out of control narcissist that tends to head up a Bigfoot group. He also seems to have few filters on what he hollers and bellows about.
Some of my friends have seen the videos above, and they were quite impressed by them.
And Matthew Johnson is simply a hair-trigger kook who bellows out with great emotion whatever thoughts happen to be passing through his brain at whatever moment. He’s always accusing people of being hoaxers, usually at the top of his lungs. He’s not really worth listening to.
Alex Munoz doesn’t like Sasquatch Ontario either and neither does Don Boucher. Don is going to try to prove that the Bigfoot vocals in the videos are faked. Not sure how he can do that.
Nice Bigfoot tracks and hair video from South Fork, Utah. I just watched this video tonight, and I have a high opinion of it. I do not believe these guys are hoaxing, but you never know to be honest. Has this video been making the roads of the Bigfoot sites? What has their opinion of it been?

Controversy about the version of Team Tracker’s expedition to Las Vegas on June 14.
I will repost Mata Hari’s comments from my site here:

Thanks for your response Robert,
The reason that Chris Sands was in Vegas on the 14th is the same reason that all of the TT people were in Vegas that weekend. Rick offered up a ‘free’ for TT members expedition to Mount Charleston in Las Vegas to hunt Bigfoots. Basically the expedition was free, but each TT member including Chris Sands was to pay one ‘all inclusive’ fee of around $900 (to Rick) that included accommodations, food – to include executive chef on the expedition, transport to and from the airport AND airplane tickets.
So while Rick DID provide the airplane tickets to the 12 TT members that attended, each member had to pay the all-inclusive fee to Rick, who I am sure made a good fat profit off of as part of his scam. Here is a good description I will cut and paste for you:
========START OF PASTE=========
Just thought I would take a minute to write a summary of Team Tracker Las Vegas’ awesome (lol) weekend:
What was promised:
THE ALL INCLUSIVE PACKAGE: The Hike is FREE to all members, but the rest will be an all-inclusive package for $1000. An incredible weekend of Bigfoot hunting led by pro tracker Rick Dyer! For this price, you get a professional camera crew, high tech tracker equipment, plane tickets, accommodations in one of Rick Dyer’s 5 bedroom Vegas homes! Eat like kings when our executive chef will cook for the team during the hike! You also get to see HANK!
Airport: Rick bought all tickets out of people’s money. Guaranteed a super fat skim on this.
Friday what was promised: That the TT Vegas crew get to see Hank!
Friday what they got: Rick apologizes for not being able to show Hank to the team because something came up, but I need you to all sign these bogus NDA’s so I can show him to you on Sunday instead.
Friday afternoon: Was supposed to be at top secret Bigfoot facility.
Instead: Rick took the flock of sheep downtown in his wrapped vehicle on the Las Vegas main strip with the windows down and country music blaring! Man that guy in the TT car must be soo cool, look at all his supporters!!
Friday night what was planned: a party after everyone got to see Hank.
What they got: an early night in Rick’s shithole $50,000 home in the ‘little Mexico’ part of Las Vegas slums. This IS a dangerous neighborhood. As for the awesome sleeping arrangements: Rick had literally NOTHING planned. 12 guys sleeping on the floor with no pillows, no blankets, no TV…NOTHING. They used t-shirts and shoes for pillows, and Rock gave them pink garbage bags to use as blankets (as seen in the photograph Rick put on his website).
Saturday promised: Was to be a hike 6 miles into the desert forest foothills of Mount Charleston to the first camp site.
Saturday what happened: This is a total HELL HIKE uphill up a mountain in the desert sun. The group of 12, which for some reason did not include the chef as Rick says he is going to meet us up there, (haha ya OK Rick!) The hike could have clearly been made by professionals, as it is hardcore hiking uphill, not designed for 5 people over the age of 70 and a mix of out of shape, overweight individuals. Dallas was smart enough to stay with his Oxygen tank and camp at the car.
A few miles into the grueling hike, one of the men decided he could no longer go on and walked back down, quitting the entire thing. An hour later, one of the women did the same. A little later on, Frank, who is a senior citizen, started getting dizzy due to this insane punishment and passes out with a heart attack. He is taken down and out along with Rick and 3 others.
The remaining 4 or so continued on alone for the rest of the hike without the MIA chef or their illustrious leader Rick. TOTAL Disaster! Master Tracker my ass, any good hike leader would look at his group and plan the difficulty of the hike around the people involved – Rick basically destroyed them all with this punishing hike from hell!
Saturday night promised: full course meal served by their camp executive chef with ribs and ‘surf and turf’ before an intense night of stalking Bigfoot around the desert foothills of Las Vegas.
Saturday night what they got: Half the team in the hospital with Frank while Rick is off packing his bags for Mexico as he was expecting Frank to possibly die. In truth I don’t know if he was packing bags, I just know on the radio show Rick was planning for Frank to possibly die, whatever that meant.
The executive chef was nowhere to be seen, and no one ever saw this guy. Rick said he was going to meet them up the mountain…ya sure. The team on the mountain were so exhausted dead from sunstroke that after canned beans and hotdogs, they crashed for the night early.
Sunday what was promised: Day 2 spending the day hiking to campsite #2 about the same distance as yesterday, even further up the mountain to the next site.
Sunday what they got: Air was so thin at this altitude that breathing is hard, it’s hotter than hell and the remaining hikers are sore as hell from the day before. They hiked not very far…
Sunday evening promised: An amazing spread of food with fresh frozen fish and filet Mignon before going into another night where Rick will have a conversation with a Bigfoot using his master tracker abilities
Sunday night what really happened: Frank is OK, so they leave Frank in good hands, and Rick and the guys with him head back up the mountain. The chef is still nowhere to be seen. Funny how Rick says the chef tried to climb the trail, but it was too hard for him, but wouldn’t those who were camping in the parking lot have seen him at least if he tried? NOPE. Rick and friends make it to the other group in time for a glorious spread of hotdogs…again.
After dinner, they go out and try to hunt Bigfoot in the dark. Using the thermal imager, they spot someone far off in the bush running from tree to tree hiding. At first it was thought this was a Bigfoot, but it was quickly determined to be Rick running around NAKED trying to hoax the group. Once he was caught, he said he was trying to imitate some hoax or other that is a line of shit. You got busted Rick!! This DID happen, as per radio show and what I have heard from our contact.
The night investigation being a total bust did not stay out very long and still tired and beat yet another fairly early night.
Last day promised: Remember Rick promised that he would take them to see Hank this day? Well after they get back to Ricks ghetto home Rick surprises them all by saying, I was only able to take SOME of you to see Hank this weekend, but those of you who saw him are not able to tell anyone else because of the NDA you signed. This trick worked on some, but not others. Bottom line NO ONE saw Hank. Frank turns out to be OK after all. The weekend is a POORLY planned disaster.
Evening: Like in the 2008 hoax, Rick does the same book burning again, except this time he whips out his junk in front of everyone to piss on the fire. His wife leaves in disgust; the faces on TT members are of pure horror. Now Rick states that ANY comments on his website that have sexual content will be removed. That’s fine Rick, but it’s then OK for you to post a picture of your cock in a video on the internet? You didn’t even blur it out one bit for heaven’s sakes. REALLY CLASSY
Conclusion: Now you may think that because we all saw that video where Everyone is happy saying how much fun they had right? Well they are at Rick’s home, and Rick is pressing them to talk about how great a weekend it was even though it was a complete disaster and the reason they flew down was to see Hank. What are they going to say in front of everyone – that they had a shit time? Nope, these people follow and won’t speak up about it.
Since then I hear there is MASSIVE dissension in the ranks at TT. Also this huge video crew that Rick said was a big part of their all inclusive cost, well it was really a joke. This video they are also going to have to fork out another $30-$50 just to get a copy. Wow what a hoax.

There are some problems with Mata Hari’s rendition of the weekend’s events.
It is not true that no one on TT got to see Rick’s Bigfoot that week. Apparently Frank Cali got to see the Bigfoot. Tragically, Frank also suffered a heart attack which is being blamed on Rick Dyer. However, it is dubious to try to blame this heart attack on Dyer, as Frank himself says he was ready to have a heart attack anytime anyway. Although the trail was very steep and not appropriate for Frank’s condition, Frank had only hiked about 50 feet up the trail before he had his heart attack.
Apparently at some point during the weekend, Rick took Frank to go see the Bigfoot. Frank has now been talking about it nonstop on Rick’s blog. Every day he posts that he saw the Bigfoot that weekend. So it looks like he did. Since Frank had a heart attack on Rick’s trip, Frank ought to be mad at Rick and has little motivation to lie for him. Frank is not getting anything out of his admission, so he gains nothing from it.
Sadly, many people have been mad at Frank for saying he saw the Bigfoot, and they have been telling him to not admit to seeing it or lie and said he didn’t see it since he had a heart attack on Rick’s trip. That’s too bad. Frank is showing the strength of his character and his dignity by telling the truth about seeing the Bigfoot.
In addition, the story about Rick hoaxing his own TT is not true. Rick and the rest of the team were attempting to recreate Stacy Brown’s Bigfoot footage in Florida to show how easy it would be to fake. Rick supposedly proved quite well how easy it would be to fake that footage, but I do not believe he proved that. I think the Stacy Brown footage is real. So that’s why Rick was running around naked in the woods in Las Vegas.
Also it is not true that Rick charged TT members $900 apiece for the trip to Vegas. It’s just not true.
Frank confessing to seeing the dead Bigfoot (Hank) is great news.
There are now three or possibly four people who have seen it and have talked:
Musky Allen
Frank
Rick’s driver*
Possibly another TT member who I spoke to
*This is the guy who drove Rick’s truck with Hank in the back from Texas to Las Vegas.
Musky has not motivation to lie. Musky has lost many if not all of this friends over this. He has gained absolutely nothing from his story of seeing Hank, zero. He hasn’t made a single dime off of it. One could argue instead that it has ruined his life. So he got his life wrecked with nothing to gain for telling a lie to benefit Rick? Why would Musky do that? There doesn’t seem to be any motivation, unless the guy is a masochist.
Rick’s driver made an odd comment that the Bigfoot smelled bad when he saw it. That is about all he has said about seeing the Bigfoot. Assuming he is lying and making up a story about seeing the Bigfoot, why would his only comment be a strange comment about the foul smell of the Bigfoot?

New Anti-Illegal Immigration Bill in Arizona

Arizona just passed a new anti-illegal immigration bill which has people freaked out all over the country.

There is really a lot less to it than either side recognizes. All it does is make Arizona law the same as federal law, so it ought to be immune to court challenges. It also stipulates that cops can only check for immigration status after they stop someone for a legitimate reason, for example, for a traffic stop or if they are a suspect in some other crime. So there are not going to be any roundups or stops on the basis of someone looking Hispanic or speaking Spanish.

The Left has gone nuts over this bill, and the Obama Administration has registered their disapproval. That bills like this are being passed at all reveals frustration over the Feds’ refusal to enforce immigration law. So the solution, says everyone, is some crap called “comprehensive immigration reform.” Every time you see that word “comprehensive” with regard to immigration, start running away. That word is code for “amnesty.” Comprehensive = amnesty. It’s that simple.

It’s actually much worse than that.

The pro-illegal crowd not only wants amnesty for 12 million illegals, they also want to end “the militarization of the border.” What that means is that they want the Border Patrol pulled off the border.

They also want “an end to the raids.” What that means is that after we do amnesty, all of the new illegals will get a free pass into the country.

There won’t be any Border Patrol at the border, so the illegals will just walk across. Once the illegals are in the country, there won’t be any more raids, so they will get to stay here as long as they like. Until the next amnesty, that is. In other words, Open Borders.

The Democrats are trying to sell this “comprehensive immigration reform” stink bomb on this basis: We will legalize the 12 million already here, and then we won’t let one more illegal stay in this country. After we give them all amnesty, we are going to massively beef up border security and finally get control over the borders. They we will bust all the employers hiring the illegals, and we will make constant raids on any new illegals. The line is, “Sure, we are doing this amnesty once, but after that, there will never be another one.”

Forget it. Ain’t gonna happen. The US is never going to get control over its border because it doesn’t want to. The Republicans want the illegals to flood over for cheap labor, and the Democrats want them pouring over because that’s what their traitor Hispanic constituency wants.

The US is never going to bust all the employers. Ain’t gonna happen. There is already a workable program called E-Verify that can easily determine if any employee is an illegal or not. The Democrats have killed mandatory E-Verify and will continue to kill it forever.

The raids necessary to remove all of the illegals are never going to happen either.

Keep in mind that this was how they sold us that last treasonous amnesty in 1986 under Reagan. First it was only supposed to be for 500,000 illegals. It ended up legalizing 3 million of them. Back then, they said the same thing. We will give them amnesty this once, then we will get control over the border, crack down on the employers and remove all the illegals already here. None of these things happened because the powers that be want these millions of illegals here.

Furthermore, there will not just be 12 million illegals legalized. There will be another 30-40 million of their relatives coming in subsequent decades under family reunification, a much abused immigration law that needs a serious working over.

Let’s get this straight. Comprehensive immigration reform means not just amnesty for 12 million illegals and adding their 40 million relatives. It also means Open Borders. Because the pro-amnesty stance is essentially an Open Borders stance. Comprehensive immigration reform = amnesty = Open Borders.

I am going to tentatively support this law until we see how it actually works out. Supposedly, this makes me a fascist and a conservative. Fine, I’m a conservative and a fascist then, no problem.

Arizona has also done two other cool things.

They passed a law banning all ethnic studies programs at K-12 schools. There are Chicano Studies programs in many Arizona high schools, and they’re terrible. They are all being taught by Reconquista Aztlan MECHA and La Raza Hispanic traitors. This curriculum is furiously anti-White and openly treasonous. It has no place in US K-12 schools.

It’s lamentable that it exists at universities too, but all sorts of nonsense is taught at university level, and you can’t much get rid of it without running the risk of censoring higher education, which I don’t want to do.

Arizona also passed a law mandating that all English teachers in Arizona K-12 schools must be fluent in English and speak without a strong accent.

One wonders why such a law was needed.

Here is what happened. A while back, Arizona had bilingual education, which I actually support, since I have a Masters in Linguistics, and I know bilingual ed works for those who need it. Opposition to bilingual ed is not pedagogically sound or proper.

Eight years ago, Arizona got rid of all bilingual ed, a very bad idea. The schools had hired all these Hispanic bilingual ed teachers for their bilingual program, many of them from Latin America. Many of these folks spoke English only as a 2nd language and were not native English speakers.

After the state got rid of bilingual ed, the schools shifted the bilingual ed teachers to other subjects, mostly to teaching English. This bill is an attempt to deal with that problem. The bill is pedagogically sound. Indeed, only native English speakers should be teaching English in the US, where English is the de facto national language.

More states are going to pass such laws. Utah and Texas have introduced copies of Arizona’s bill. This will be nice because the more states that pass these bills, the harder it’s going to be for the pro-illegals to pull off their, “We are going to boycott this state!” threat. It’s fairly easy to boycott one state, but when it gets to two, three and more states, it’s going to be harder and harder to boycott so many states.

Wolverines in Colorado and Utah

Repost from the old site.
Separate posts on this blog deal extensively with wolverines in Oregon, Washington, Idaho (here and here), Wyoming, Nevada, the Upper Midwest and New Mexico. There are also five posts on the wolverine in California.
This post was split off from an earlier post that got too large, California Wolverine Re-discovered After 85 Years. This particular post will deal with the question of wolverines in the states of Utah and Colorado.
Wolverines are present in Colorado on the Pike and White River National Forests and in Utah in the Wasatch and Uinta Mountains and in Sanpete County in central Utah.

The Pike National Forest southwest of Denver, Colorado. This forest is believed to harbor wolverines. The famous Pike’s Peak is located in this forest.
The Manti-La Sal National Forest in Utah in Sanpete County. This county in central Utah is believed to harbor a wolverine population. This area is northeast of Fillmore, Utah, which is the sighting nearest to Nevada.

 
I recently received a report of a good, but unconfirmed, wolverine sighting in the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. The sighting occurred on August 20, 1989 in the Upper Escalante River Canyon at the junction with Coyote Gulch (map here). The wolverine was in the canyon chasing a beaver near its beaver dam. It also swam across the river.
The sighting was by a man with a Master’s Degree in Ecology from UC Davis. The elevation for the sighting was 4,100 feet, but wolverines are not always found at high elevations.
This is an extremely unusual place to see a wolverine, but they probably used to live here. There are place names such as “Wolverine Bench” on the map in the Escalante Canyon area and wolverines used be found into northern Arizona. If wolverines existed in northern Arizona, clearly they existed in the Glen Canyon area. Wolverines live in very similar habitat in the Snake River Canyon in Idaho.
The Upper Escalante River Canyon is in the Aquarius Plateau, which has 50,000 acres of land above 11,000 feet. That’s clearly wolverine habitat. The junction of Coyote Gulch and the Upper Escalante is a ways away from the Plateau, but it’s likely a dispersing juvenile could be found in the area. A photo of the terrain is here.
There have been sporadic wolverine sightings for decades in Colorado.
A Colorado Department of Wildlife biologist spotted one south of Trapper Lake in Flat Tops Wilderness in the mid-1960’s.
 

Trapper Lake in the Flat Tops Wilderness. Canyon walls tower up to 1,000 feet at this late at the 9,500 foot elevation level. Fishing is very popular in this lake and it is said to be very good.

The Flat Tops is partly in the White River National Forest and partly in the Routt NF. There was another unconfirmed sighting of tracks from the Flat Tops in 2003.

A photo of Vail ski resort and the town of Vail, Colorado as seen from Red Sandstone Road, which goes north of town. A wolverine was seen on this road recently. Click to enlarge.

Recently, there was an unconfirmed wolverine sighting 4-5 miles up Red Sandstone Road in Vail, Colorado on the White River National Forest.
 

The famous Maroon Bells in the White River National Forest in western Colorado. Aspen and Vail are also located in this forest. I spent a week skiing in Aspen in 1978. Great place! The White National Forest is believed to harbor a wolverine population. Along with Pike NF, these may be the only populations in the state.

 
There was another unconfirmed sighting of a wolverine chasing a boy on a motorcycle down a road in the Routt National Forest in far northern Colorado some years ago. The Routt is near Steamboat Springs up by the Wyoming border.
There have been multiple unconfirmed wolverine sightings in Rocky Mountain National Park since 2000.
In June 1979, a man watched a wolverine for four minutes as it approached a bear bait he had set near Parshall in Grant County. That area is southwest of Rocky Mountain National Park.
 

A photo of the Aspen Canyon Ranch in Parshall, Colorado. A wolverine was seen here in 1979. Parshall is not much of a town. It is really just an unincorporated collection of small homes and trailers. There are dude ranches all around here. That may be the Colorado River in the photo, as it runs through town here near its headwaters. Fishing is supposed to be great in the river here.

 
In June 1978, a couple photographed an adult wolverine with three cubs in the Uncompagre. In the late 1980’s, there was an unconfirmed sighting of a wolverine in the Uncompagre Wilderness on the Uncompagre National Forest. The Uncompagre is in southern Colorado and is located about 20 miles northwest of Telluride.
In March 1979, three biologists with the Colorado Department of Wildlife saw a wolverine near the Rifle Falls Fish Hatchery near Rifle, Colorado in Garfield County in western Colorado.
 

Rifle Mountain Park, 13 miles north and just beyond the Rifle Falls Fish Hatchery, the largest fish hatchery in Colorado. There is great ice climbing here during the winter and mountain climbing the rest of the year. You don’t even have to worry about rain much because the cliffs catch so much of it and you can always take shelter under one. A wolverine was seen near here in 1979.

Also in March 1979, a man shot a wolverine on Highway 40, 1½ miles west of the Colorado border in Utah near Dinosaur, Colorado.
In June 1978, a man took three photos of a wolverine crossing a snow field on Trinchera Peak (13,513 feet) in the Sangre de Christo Mountains in southern Colorado.
 

The spectacular Trinchera Peak in the Sangre de Cristos. Bighorns roam on the top slopes of the mountain.

There have also been quite a few sightings in the San Juan Mountains north of Durango and southeast of Wolf Creek Pass.
In July 1977, a man found a wolverine skull in the East Fork of the Cinnamon River Drainage in Gunnison County. The skull was less than 10 years old.
Wolverines have also been spotted, incredibly, near Sterling on the Great Plains in northeastern Colorado, which seems very odd, but looking through all of these reports, it becomes apparent that wolverines in Wyoming, Oregon, Idaho, Utah, Iowa and Minnesota may indeed use prairie habitat.


An incredible photo of a tornado over Sterling, Colorado from a storm-chaser page. Storm-chasers chase tornadoes so they can get pictures of them, or just to watch them. Pretty dangerous sport. Click to enlarge. I think it is quite clear by now that wolverines do use prairie habitat.
Even aboriginally, prairie was thought to be marginal for wolverines, but perhaps that was wrong. Pre-contact, vast herds of buffalo roamed the prairie, and there would be plenty of dead buffalo for the scavenging wolverine to eat.
