Breaking and (Barely) Entering

stilton’s place, stilton, political, humor, conservative, cartoons, jokes, hope n’ change, insurrection, inch erection, biden, January 6th

Saturday is January 6th and I want to wish each and every one of you a glorious "Insurrection Day." Fly American flags, stroll around casually, take selfies with friends, then call it a day early and go to a nice restaurant for a 4 p.m. early-bird dinner special. You'll want to do all of this carefully, of course, because apparently, those activities could cause Democracy to fail, our nation to collapse, and be so generally apocalyptic that it will make the Holocaust look like no big deal - although in fairness, the former president of Harvard already thought that. 

Personally, I plan to hang my solar-powered American Flag LED lights and maybe a festive "Don't Tread On Me" flag. And what the hell, once I've done that I might as well leave them up until November...

A long-hidden list of Jeffrey Epstein's (ahem) "associates" is finally being revealed in court proceedings, showing the names of the high-and-mighty who took advantage of his private jet and allegedly may have taken advantage of underage privates on Epstein's "pedophile island."

To no one's surprise, Bill "Stink Finger" Clinton's name is on the list. As are the names of legal eagle Alan Dershowitz, magician David Copperfield, Britain's Prince Andrew, and irrepressible party animal Stephen Hawking.  Everyone involved is denying participating in any sex trafficking activities and it seems likely that not much will come out of all this. After all, if these players could off Epstein in a locked and guarded prison cell, there's no way they're going to let unfiltered documents get to the public.

Rather, an old adage reminds us that "the Devil mixes his lies with truth" and I'm betting we're being fed just enough truth for things to look credible while the really explosive stuff remains buried.

(UPDATE: I owe everyone a huge apology! An earlier version of this mentioned Donald Trump being on a list because I fell for fake news. But we're talking professional fake news here: USA TODAY is even now billboarding this story with the headline "Clinton and Trump are named in Jeffrey Epstein documents." But if you read the whole story down to the fine print, you learn that Trump's name was only on "a document" that said Epstein planned to invite Trump to meet him at a casino. I'd say more, but I have a date with my cat-o-nine-tails for some self-flagellation.)


So this is legal now...

"Steamboat Willie," the first iteration of Mickey Mouse, fell into the public domain on January 1st and everyone is now legally free to use his image for whatever fun and debauchery they like.  Multiple horror movies have already been announced and the Internet has been having a field day with inappropriate imagery. Not that I would ever do that...

Does this one strike you as too out of bounds? If so, don't blame me, blame Walt Disney - because that final frame is lifted straight out of the "Steamboat Willie" cartoon in which the frisky mouse enjoys playing squeazy-peasy with the horrified sow after shaking loose her suckling babies. It was a simpler time. And often weirder.


Who can ever forget the innocent delight we old folks all felt back in the 1960's when a brand new song by The Stiltones debuted on our AM radios...?

Full confession: this is a one-minute song I created with the help of artificial intelligence while screwing around on the Internet. Most of the lyrics are old Burma Shave signs, I wrote the chorus, then AI produced the tune and lead vocal. After which I added harmony vocals using my computer's mic and made the video on another Internet website I was playing with. And I'm sharing it not because it's great, but because I had fun making it.

Considering that Burma Shave advertising signs haven't been posted in 60 years, I expect this already cryptic song to be absolutely baffling to anyone under AARP-age. But as an artist and musician, I care neither about their approval nor that of the horse they rode in on.

Farley B funny! And "Out of Copyright Comics" has a definite future...

Amazing there are no GOP or even RINO names on the Epstein List. Maybe they had a note signed by "Epstein's Mother"? ;-)

Happy New Year Stilton,
Be safe and keep your stick on the ice,

Mike aka Proof said...

The humor is plenteous, but the remark about Trump being on the list? was that supposed to be funny, because he hasn't been on any list that I've seen yet. Was this penned before the actual list was revealed? Hedging your bets a little? Happy Epiphany!

Anonymous said...

Another question about the source for including trump on that list, from what I have seen he specifically wasn't.

Fish Out of Water said...

Me? I use the American Flag forever stamps for outgoing mail (bills) and have started pasting the flag stamp upside down. Its a small insignificant gesture perhaps, but it does make me feel a tiny bit better.

TrickyRicky said...

I still want to know where Epstein got all that money.

I guess the spin rate of dear old Walt's body has gone up a few thousand RPM.

Anonymous said...

Oh, the poor Left. I'm betting a lot of them are spitting on their hocks and wiping it on the other not being able to call out Trump as a pedophile. But they are too deep keeping the Epstein personnel on the down low.

Hah. May a nest of fire ants find a home in their colons ...

@ Fish Out of Water-I've been doing the same since November 04 2020 and will do so until such time as there is a President in the White house again.

John D. Egbert said...

@ American Cowboy: Don't do the flag stamp thing, since I use Stamps.Com. However, the flag on the pole in my front yard has been flying inverted for the same length of time -- 24/7 (it's lighted at night). It's kinda saddening how few questions have been received . . .

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@Readers- As a number of you pointed out, I f*cked up royally by saying that Trump was on the list of potential naughty-doers. I fell for a USA TODAY headline that proclaimed "CLINTON AND TRUMP ARE NAMED IN JEFFREY EPSTEIN DOCUMENTS." Trump's name is mentioned in a "document" that mentions Epstein was planning to send him an invitation to meet him at a casino - nothing more.

I am mortified to have fallen for USA TODAY's deceptive headline. Damn my innocent, trusting nature!

Patrick said...

Even more deceptive on the part of our beloved MSM: as I read it, Epstein wasn't planning to ask Trump to join him, but simply took lodging for himself and his entourage at Trump's Atlantic City casino when his plane was diverted from NYC. Of course, I did not see this in the US MSM, but had to wander off into Al Jazeera to find it. (Anymore when something like this pops and I go looking for info, I tend to scroll well past the US news source links. Usually it isn't Al Jazeera I end up at, but this is the first one that I deemed to click upon that wasn't clearly and inextricably attached to the leftist's propaganda engine that seraves as "news" here...)

Donald Trump

Former President Donald Trump is also mentioned in the documents but not accused.

Sjoberg mentioned an incident when she left with Epstein, Giuffre and a few others on a plane from Palm Beach, Florida, in 2001.

When the plane was unable to land in New York due to a storm, they had to land in Atlantic City and went to one of Trump’s casinos. Since Giuffre was underage at the time, Sjoberg was asked if she was allowed into the casino.

“I did not know anything about how old you had to be to gamble legally. I just knew she could not get in because of an ID issue, so she and I did not gamble,” Sjoberg answered.

Link: Jeffrey Epstein list: Whose names are on the newly unsealed documents?

What bothers me most about this Epstein saga? I mean aside from the participation by the elites? It is very unlikely that his was the only operation doing this to youngsters to this extreme. He's just the only one who got caught.

John the Econ said...

Got a glimpse of a Biden re-election ad yesterday, which will likely be the tone of his re-erection campaign. It's all gonna be dark. Instead of celebrating any success (an impossible task anyway) it's all gonna be J6, saving democracy from democracy, white supremacy, Christian nationalism and the dark scourge of the MAGA deplorable class.

In other words, all the imaginary boogiemen of the TDS fever imagination.

The Pedo file: How sad is it that the only individual who can lay any claim to any moral high ground in the sad Epstein saga is Donald Trump, who kicked Epstein's recruitment op off his properties?

Shelly said...

Love the Burma Shave song. I remember those long car trips with the little girl in the backseat (me) bored out of her mind and getting excited about reading those signs. Their spacing and concise wording were great.

We all knew if Trump were implicated, we would have known about it long ago. Instead, they have to keep themselves busy creating false flags to bring him down. All have failed so far. But know this, a whole ton of people have turned to Trump just because of it. We've seen his poll number jump up with every fake lawsuit.

JustaJeepGuy said...

@American Cowboy and @Fish, I have also been doing the same since Gropey Joe had the election stolen for him.

@John the Econ, I have certainly noticed that Gropey Joe's supporters never say anything good about Joe, they just attack President Trump. There isn't anything good they can say about Gropey Joe.

Happy Brandon Kwanzaa.

Hopey, hopey changey into Fundamental Zimbabwe transformation?
Yes we can!

John25mm said...

So you say our "leader" is going to have an inch-erection. So, you mean he is hung like a raging bull a hamster.

I don't blame you for the Trump error, I've seen his name in a number of locations. I'm guessing by people who really want it to be true so they will throw it out there everywhere they can hoping some of it sticks.

mamafrog said...

@Fish Out of Water Uhhmm, I always heard (from my very distant days as a teenager) that an upside down stamp meant "I love you"?

Brie Camembert said...

Though I'm not a native of the Democratic Republic of America, I do love the Burma Shave song. Good Job Doc
(I guess it should be Myanmar Shave now, huh?)

Question to Democrat:"What has Joe achieved?"
Answer 1:"Orange Man Bad!"
Answer 2: You're rayciss!"
Answer 3:"I have a dream that one day...."

Fish Out of Water said...

@mamafrog: That's news to me.

mamafrog said...

@ Fish Out of Water - Maybe it's a southern thing?

Fish Out of Water said...

@mamafrog: If its a Southern thing, I'd say its a message the South will rise again.

mamafrog said...

@Fish Out of Water Nah, probably just mush brained teenagers! I do know it's also an emergency signal though, which makes more sense.

M. Mitchell Marmel said...

I always read upside-down flag = SOS, myself.

BJ54 said...

An upside-down flag is supposed to be a distress signal if I'm remembering correctly. In any case America is in distress as long as the RINOs and democrats are in charge.
