Jackley entraps nine to look tough on crime

Thanks to Marty Jackley's selective enforcement white thugs have carte blanche to commit flagrant criminal acts during the Sturgis Rally. A long history of lawlessness can make the event highly virulent attracting common parasites who breed in the cesspools of human existence.

If a government agent sends a man a pornographic image of a teenage girl then prosecutes him for possession of the photo that’s entrapment.

Entrapment is nothing new at the Rally. Jackley has routinely used government agents to deceive unwitting tourists in South Dakota to advance his political career.

Jackley's thugs planted evidence of cannabis use on former Butte County States Attorney Heather Plunkett that got her fired and prosecuted.

To his credit Jackley's behavior has caused visitation in Sturgis to fall to lows not seen since 1990 even as more riders kill themselves and drive record business to Rapid City Regional.

Sturgis was recently voted worst town in South Dakota by readers of interested party.

That Jackley is raising campaign money grandstanding as some champion of white rule as South Dakota's culture of racism is being tried in the court of public opinion is vertiginous in its hubris.

If only Marty's office could be more transparent about the Bendagate Affair and his party's culture of corruption than about his egomaniacal intention to run up the GOP ladder.

American Indians in Montana want removal of memorial to treason; whither South Dakota?


The United States was founded on the backs of slaves as systematic genocide became a way of life for white christians quoting scripture as they slaughtered their fellow humans. After colonizers realized enslaved American Indians had no resistance to diseases brought from the Old World, Africans were imported to do the dirty work.

In the early twentieth century after President Theodore Roosevelt invited Booker T. Washington to the White House white supremacists began erecting statuary commemorating and celebrating treason in the United States.
Members of the American Indian Caucus in the Montana Legislature are calling for the city of Helena to remove a Confederate memorial that sits in a city park. In their letter, members of the American Indian Caucus said white nationalists, neo-Nazis, members of the alt-right and any other groups that propagate hate, discrimination, violence and bigotry have no place in this country. [Helena Independent Record]
Confederate flags routinely fly in Rapid City showing support for racism in like-minded states, South Carolina and Mississippi. Many more come out during the Sturgis Rally.

Channeling the Bundy domestic terrorists who laid siege on Harney County, Oregon Rep. Lee Schoenbeck (RWNJ-Watertown) embraces white privilege every day.

Rosebud rapper, Frank Waln, is a survivor of genocide visited against tribal nations.

Moody and Pennington Counties struggle with racism on a local level.

As bikers in the Black Hills can still be seen flaunting their racist bents flying the flag of slavery from their machines Gettysburg, South Dakota remains a white supremacist stronghold.
The Potter County city of Gettysburg will not be removing the Confederate Flag from patches of the police department. ["...Without the war, and without the Battle of Gettysburg, we would not be the same City that we are. The Chief of Police, Bill Wainman, the Mayor, Bill Wuttke, and the City Council have no intentions of changing the police patch."]
Read that here.

Over eight hundred people were arrested outside Standing Rock during the Dakota Excess demonstrations, 155 arrested in Ferguson and only four were arrested in Charlottesville.

Not really South; not really Dakota.

Right to life? Not if you're non-white in America or South Dakota.

Casita reaches the end


This is from a year ago today.



It's ready for guests but it's kinda hard to let go and start another project. Thirteen and a half months just flew by. Click on any image for better looks.





This is the rear elevation. Note the two hundred gallon rain barrel.



Here's a shot out the front door with the Ortiz Mountains about five miles as the buzzard flies.







Our Lady of the Arroyo is having some girls up here today. The blog hosted the geezers here last Tuesday. It looks good.

Unruh groping for peak "ick" factor

I caught this LTE the other day in the paper and thought I'd expose another charlatan in the South Dakota Republican Party.

Allen Unruh is an Elkton boy: his family was run out of town after his father, also a "chiropractic physician," was caught molesting children during exams at a time in South Dakota history when quacks enjoyed intimate physical contact with boys to determine who would participate in school sports.

You see this all the time with Talibangelicals: someone threatens to out one as a serial molester, he runs an op-ed in the paper then diverts some cash he raises from sermonizing wedge issues to shut up the people he's raped or groped.

Think of it as the Bill Cosby Effect: the more sanctimonious the speech the more cash gets raised to hide career criminal behavior.

It does make one wonder if all the chiropractors in South Dakota are intellectually incompetent or just thugs. Fred Deutsch and Jeff Monroe want to end women's civil rights, Scott Munsterman groped at least one teen and Allen Unruh wants to rewrite history by leaving Native genocide and human-caused climate change out of school curricula. These are "pro-life" people who rabidly embrace state-sponsored killing of persons convicted of capital crimes.

There are additional benefits of health insurance through the Healthcare.gov Marketplace like plans that offer covfefe for chiropractic or acupuncture services.

Two of South Dakota's earth hater delegation receive their medical benefits from Obamacare. Rep. Kristi Noem has a full ride and Sen. John Thune is on the DC HealthLink Obamacare exchange.

The red moocher state's junior senator hasn't shared the source of his medical benefits with media but it's believed he is covered by the insurance company he owns and will be eligible for Medicare before his term ends.

Republicans are infamous for killing the VA and IHS while government-run health care like CHAMPUS and TRICARE have been working for decades. My siblings and i were all born in government hospitals.

Sanford, Avera and Rapid City Regional enjoy virtual medical industry monopolies in their markets.

Kinda makes ya sick, init?

I like the idea of rolling the funding for Obamacare, TRICARE, Medicare, the IHS and the VA together then offering Medicaid for all by increasing the estate tax, raising taxes on tobacco and adopting a carbon tax. Reproductive freedoms should be included with conditions just like the military does under TRICARE.

Earth haters like Allen Unruh can squawk all they want about "socialized medicine" or "government-run health care." South Dakota is already a perpetual welfare state and permanent federal disaster area. It leads the US in breast cancer rates and is one of seven states that would be devastated by the repeal of Obamacare.

Chiropractic and acupuncture are palliatives at best while cannabis is a proven effective therapy.

Unruh's a sleaze ball of biblical proportions. He authored the Obama impeachment resolution adopted by SDGOP. Right Wing Watch has someone following his hijinx, too.

It's just creepy. You just can't unrub this guy enough.
Good one Larry. My hometown chiropractic quack required excess nudity from female patients, then just had to pull back robes to expose breaststroke or genitals. This was all in the course of "treatment", of course. I doubt they're All pervs, just a high percentage. BTW, I saw Unruh at a legislative hearing about 10 years ago. He has a very high "ick" factor. Made my skin crawl. Ugh. [comment, Deb Geelsdottir, August 17, 2015]
Republicans are evil. Children are born atheists.

Turn your head and cough.

Today's intersection: death with dignity and suicide by cop

South Dakota is mulling a potential ballot measure that would hold harmless physicians who assist patients with terminal illnesses in ending their own lives.

One earth hater legislator, quack Fred Deutsch, has been raising campaign cash gallivanting around the red moocher state with a crusade calling the initiative "Don't Eat Grandma" or something.
End-of-life care presents a great opportunity for pharmacists to exercise their expertise. Physicians and pharmacists must contemplate the implications of death with dignity laws on their personal beliefs and future practice to provide empathy, understanding, and the best possible care to their patients. [Death With Dignity: A Right or a Crime?]
But ya know? A state-ordered lethal injection isn't criminal justice; it's suicide by cop. Hell is a Supermax in Colorado.

It does make one wonder if all the chiropractors in South Dakota are intellectually incompetent or just thugs. Deutsch and Jeff Monroe want to end women's civil rights, Scott Munsterman groped at least one teen and Allen Unruh wants to rewrite history by leaving Native genocide and human-caused climate change out of school curricula. These are "pro-life" people who rabidly embrace state-sponsored killing of persons convicted of capital crimes.

These people aren't interested in compassion: they want big government nanny state control over every aspect of peoples' lives, abhor cultural diversity and perceive the electorate as rabble.

This blog doesn't have a god in the fight but since the South Dakota Republican establishment mouthpiece suffers from hypocritheocrisy and misogyny, can't bear dissent and deletes or ridicules comments from dissenters this post will have to do.

It'd be scary if it weren't so Stoogesque, Marxistic or Mouseketeerian. But, applaud Deutsch's efforts diverting attention from his party's culture of corruption where murders and their covers up are commonplace by clogging the legislative session with christianic religionist argle-bargle.

South Dakota deserves the legislature it endures.
