Winner! Worst Fraud Attempt, 2006

Alexander Valterovich Litvinenko

Since this ex-KGB man was assassinated, I have been banging my head on the wall trying to figure this one out. In any criminal investigation, the first question is always: Cui bono, “Who benefits.”

The obvious answer is Russia, because Alexei has been so outspoken against them. That’s a problem… the FSB could have taken this guy at will in the last 10 years, and made it look like a simple mugging, an accident, a heart attack… but they didn’t, and if they wanted to kill him, the FSB certainly wouldn’t use something so ham-handed as Polonium to kill the guy. Frankly, I consider the idea that the Russian government did this to be silly.

I have some knowledge of chemistry and physics, and the amount of Polonium that Alexei Valterovich ingested is what we would describe as “nontrivial”, and besides, using radioactive elements to poison dissidents is nekulturniy. This act was nearly certainly carried out with the support of a nation with advanced nuclear technology. Since Russia is ruled out by logic, we have to ask the question again: Cui bono? The act of smuggling Po-210 into the UK would be simple. It’s a pure alpha emitter that decays to stable Pb-206, common lead. Since alpha particles can be blocked by a sheet of paper, and Po-210’s decay product is stable (non-radioactive), it is very unlikely that a Geiger counter would detect Polonium outside of any kind of sealed container. So we now have another question… Who produced it? Since Po-210 has a very short half-life, and occurs in nature in very small quantities, but can be produced easily in a nuclear reactor, The List of suspects narrows. So who not only benefits from Litvinenko’s death, but also benefits from Russia being blamed? When you look at it that way, the list of suspects becomes shorter still. I can only think of the 3 suspects: China, the Russkaya Mafiya, or Israel.

China has the antipathy and political will to carry this out, but I can’t figure a reason, except to destabilize the Russian leadership, possibly in a prelude to a military incursion into Siberia. I consider this possibility to be extremely remote, mostly because the Commie Chinks would kill the golden goose, i.e. their trade relationship with the United States.

The Russian Mafia is a great suspect. They have the motive and the contacts to obtain the Polonium from Russia. The problem with the Russian Mafia scenario is that this really isn’t their style. When somebody offends the Russkaya Mafiya, they deal with it by getting 10 guys with AK-47’s and blasting the offender and his family down in the street in a fashion that the most militant gangsta-rapper from Compton would balk at. The Russian Mafia is full of ex-KGB types, but they really don’t take care of business like this.

Israel… they are my prime suspect. They not only have the resources to pull something like this off, they would benefit the most from killing this man (whom was a converted Muslim that supported the Chechens) and to boot they get to discredit Russia, a county that supplies weapons to all of their enemies. In fact, Iran and Syria buy most of their advanced weapons (tanks, aircraft, missiles, etc.) from Russia. The pure chutzpah, to borrow a Hebrew word, of this operation to kill Alexei smacks not only of the Mossad, but Israel benefits the most from the result. The only thing that really counters this is the political risk involved... the MSM is already bias against Israel, would they risk an operation like this?

We shall see.

News Review

UPDATE11/24: TOLD YA! If anybody listened to me, they made a few bucks. US Airways Group, LLC, has gained nearly $3 per share since the "Incident"

Well let’s see… since the Democrats were chosen by the American and Mexican people to lead the Congress, there has been much rejoice in the world. Muslim terrorist organizations, rogue nations, various communist and pseudo-socialist governments (Western Europe) from around the world have joined in celebration with the majority of the American public. Supreme Warlord Premier George Walter Bush is acting less like the President of the United States, and more like a whipped puppy, sucking on Pelosi’s dried up teats.

This vast shift of power has occurred, and yet even before the Democrats take control, they are already falling flat on their faces; so much so there has been talk of ousting Pelosi as the incoming House Speaker. One of the promises made by the Democrats was to “end corruption in the Congress”… Anybody that bought that should have their citizenship revoked and be sent to Siberia. I don’t think any reasonable American believed that crap, but in an effort to test just how stupid the American people were, Pelosi decided to try to force in to power two of the most corrupt men in politics: John “Ethics reform is total crap” Murtha, and Alcee “Impeached by the Democrats” Hastings.
Did you vote Democrat for your House rep? That’s your leader. At least Clinton waited until he was in office. I underestimated the resolve of the new moderate Democrats: They squashed this bullshit with extreme prejudice.

If that weren't enough, the incoming Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, Democrat Charles Rangel, has promised to put forth a bill to reinstate the draft. Yes, THE draft. All this less than three weeks after the Democrats won the majority. Watching the Democrat’s post-election political maneuvering is like watching the Keystone Kops trying to arrest Al Capone.

In other news, six Muslims were kicked off a U.S. Airways flight after praying to Allah (loudly) before getting on the plane, bitching about the Iraq War and bashing America in general. To top it off, they all sat apart, and refused to leave when the flight crew demanded they do so after the complaints. I suspect these “holy men” provoked this incident; it's all too obvious. The spokesman of the “Minneapolis Six”, Omar Ahmad Shahin, has proven links to Hamas and Al-Qaeda (the mass media is of course ignoring this). CAIR, the Sharia law and jihad promoting terrorist front organization that the mass media thinks speaks for all American Muslims, is calling for an investigation and a boycott. If Muslims boycott U.S. Airways, I know what airline I will fly next time.

Stock tip: Buy US Airways Group, LLC! It’s listed on the NYSE.

Iran-backed Hezbollah and/or Syria assassinated Pierre Amine Gemayel, a Christian from a family of strong willed Lebanese politicians, whom was arguably the last best chance for Lebanon to form a stable democracy. Now that France is guarding the southern border of Lebanon, defending Hezbollah from Israel, Hezbollah will be free to take over the country. Expect this to happen within the next three months.

Bum PSU’s and The Atomic Testing Museum

I have been trying to avoid political topics lately, mostly because I get so worked up about things I can barley see straight. I knew I had to step back when last week, I berated a table full of my co-workers, just trying to enjoy their smoke-break, for voting for communists and accusing them of collaborating with Hezbollah and the CPUSA.

As mentioned in a previous post, I had a new system built for me this September (mostly because I was too lazy to do it myself) by Cyberpower, INC. I bought my first gaming computer from them many years ago when they had a 2 page black and white ad in the now defunct Computer Shopper. That system was HOT! I bought it just so I could play Everquest with my Earthlink 56k dial-up connection. I was ecstatic when the boxes arrived! A full tower case with a revolutionary AMD K6-III 450MHz processor, 128 Megs of EDO RAM, 32x CD-ROM, and a 32 bit Voodoo 3 card! Bam! I was very satisfied with it, and recommended purchasing a Cyberpower-built machine to no less than 3 people (including my father) which they did, and were just as satisfied as I.

That company (they also go by Ibuypower.com) has grown so much that they are now taking out two 4-page fold out ads in all the main-stream PC magazines, so I went back to them when my CPU got fried in a few months ago. I had problems from the get go with them this time around. They were out of the RAM I wanted (Corsair duel-channel) and so they refunded me the difference for chepo PC-3200 400MHz. O.k. I can live with that; I can upgrade later after all. The box arrives, 2 ½ weeks late, without my Saitek Eclipse keyboard or Razor gaming mouse. I sent them an email, and they replied the next day saying that they were out of stock and would ship them later, and gave me a time frame for when I would get the keyboard and mouse. They gave me a discount, so I rolled with it. The box was just as I ordered, the wiring was all professionally tied up, and I had the motherboard, processor and video card I ordered, the extra fans and blue LED lights… nice. I could wait a couple weeks for the fluff.

I started having problems almost immediately when I tried to run any games at full resolution (1650X1080), I was getting blue screens of death, programs would crash to windows, and my system would restart with no warning. I started turning down the options on games and this helped somewhat, but the crashes kept occurring, and I was trying to figure out what the problem is. Bum video card? Overheating? Bum RAM? Bum hard drive? It was driving me crazy. At one point my hard drive became so corrupted that I had to reformat and do a clean install of XP. After the new install, the crashes kept on coming, so I started poking around some NVIDIA and AMD forums and saw that my problems were symptomatic of a bad power supply. I took a peek at what my stock case PSU pulled, and sure enough, it didn’t throw enough Amps on the 12V rail to power my card. Rookie mistake on my part, but as the MOD (PBUH) pointed out:

“Cyberpower has techs that either are incompetent or don’t care. They should have known that the stock PSU was underpowered, and they didn’t replace it, or contacted you saying you needed to pay for an upgrade.”

The MOD (PBUH) is absolutely right. I assumed, and therefore made an ass out of me and Cyberpower, that they would not have used a PSU that was underpowered for my system. Well I fixed that the day I figured out what happened. I installed a good 600W PSU, and upgraded the RAM to boot. It voided my warranty, but I don’t care. I could have sent the machine back (fronting the $100 2-way shipping charge) and maybe had it returned by the New Year. Gaming bliss now… I have been running all my games with full graphic options without even a burp.

On to the Las Vegas Atomic Testing Museum

I recommend the Atomic Testing Museum to all those whom find themselves in Las Vegas. It’s a nice respite from the whores, crack-heads, and casinos. After you pay the clipped-haired czarina the $10 admission, you are lectured that camera and cell-phone use is strictly prohibited. When she is done, you’re given a wrist band like the ones you receive at concerts to show you’re 21 or over, and the door opens and you are free to roam around.

I was floored by the first exhibit. It contained the typed letter that Einstein wrote to President Roosevelt in 1939 telling him an atomic bomb was possible and urging research. I had seen copies of this letters in dozens of books and History and Discovery channel specials, and there it was. Below it was a piece of Trininite about the diameter of a U.S. Quarter. As you proceed, you find various videos and time line of nuclear testing in Nevada until you come to a small theater that resembles a bomb shelter complete with red wire-rimmed industrial lights. Every 15 minutes, when everybody is seated, the screen comes down and the red lights go out. The place is completely dark. Radio chatter and a countdown sound through the speakers. When the countdown reaches 1, the entire theater is glaring bright white light, and after a few seconds you see the orange and black mushroom cloud rising on the screen, there is no sound…yet. You see an obvious shock-wave moving at the camera throwing up dust, and when it hits the camera, they blow compressed air into the theater and sound the deafening explosion through the speakers! Very cool, I sat through it twice.

As you continue, they have various scientific equipment, videos, and diagrams that go on to explain the history of nuclear testing, standard museum fair, really. They DID have the original atomic rocket engine, complete with the original Radioactive Trefoil symbols plastered on it.

At the end of the museum they had an exhibit dedicated to nuclear terrorism that included a 1 meter piece of I-beam from WTC 1. I thought that was rather odd.

After you exit, they have an all-purpose room for roaming exhibits. When I went, they had artifacts from Hiroshima…wow. They had things like tea cups and saucers that had been fused by the heat, and a piece of a concrete wall that had a shadow “burned” into it. All of the items were marked with how far they were found from ground zero. The whole exhibit was very somber, and the artifacts had an almost spiritual reverence about them. Everybody that was in there was speaking in sotto voice, and even I found myself whispering. There were again things in there that I have seen in books and on the History Channel. What stuck me most was an exhibit that had a charred and distorted lunch box of a school-girl that still contained carbonized rice (I had seen this thing on the History Channel as well). The plaque said this was 1500m from ground zero I think...

I was very pleased with the exhibit, until I saw this tree in the corner with construction paper notes with multi-colored yarn tied to it. I walked over and saw a station with a stack of cards and pens. The purpose of this was for children (there were several high school and younger kids there) to write a message to the people of Hiroshima, explaining how they felt about what they saw. Fuck me.

I of course read them, and invariably they all said some variation of: “I am sorry America killed so many of your people”, “America should be tried for war-crimes”, “Ban nuclear weapons”, and other liberal platitudes. The writing was obviously that of children, but some were written by adults. I was infuriated, and almost marched up to the ticket booth and demanded my money back. I stopped myself and remembered that these kids don’t know any better, they are taught by liberal educators to hate themselves, America, and our history.

I agree; I’m sorry we had to nuke Japan too. I am not sorry that doing so saved 500,000 Americans. I’m not sorry that we made Japan surrender for the first time in their history. Is there an exhibit over in Japan where pieces of the USS Arizona and video of the US soldiers Japan executed are shown? Where is the bonzi tree with rice-paper messages attached from Japan to my family and country for starting WWII?

Of course I had to leave my own notes, so I wrote on one card "This is what happens when you attack the USA... don't forget", and on another "I am sorry our scientists were better than yours." Insensitive? Yup. Funny? You know it!

News of the Week

Well it’s been a damn interesting week! I can’t believe what happened! I almost cried, really I almost did. The greatest catastrophe since Hurricane Katrina happened this week:

Brittany filed for divorce from K-Fed! Why did this bitch have 2 kids before I had a crack at her? Ahh well… shit! I am devastated! I nearly can’t go on writing this post...

Also in the news… The KC Chiefs are now #9 in the NFL power rankings! Booyakasha! How hard-core is the AFC West? The Chargers are in 7th place and the Broncos are # 3. Of the 32 teams in the NFL, 1/3 of the top 9 are from the same division; has that ever happened before? I need to consult one of these statisticians that can pull numbers out of their ass like “The Chiefs are 17-1 at home in November in the last 20 years when it’s cloudy vs. a NFC East Team,” … who has that job?

In more news, Australia is facing the worst drought in their history, and in the U.K. a bunch of the barbarian Muslim jihadists that were holding those protest placards that read “Behead Those Who Insult Islam”, and “Europe you will pay, you 9/11 is on it’s way” have been convicted of… I’m not sure what but, the Brits are locking them up.

Anything else… Oh yeah, here in America there was a mid-term election this week. I made a video about it:

Oh, two more things! CNN/Money just rated Overland Park to be the 6th best place to live in the county! I will have to spend some money at www.hire-a-muslim-mob.com to get us to #1! This week in the KC Star, Lady Sovereign was featured in the FYI section, there was 2 huge pictures of her and everything. Incredible, I think I have a crush on her chav ass.
