No one else has diaried this that I’ve noticed, and it doesn’t seem to have hit the MSM, and while I’m no expert on the subject this seems far, far too outrageous to let pass. This is beyond the beyond.
A Navy officer who admitted to Virginia’s Child Protective Services (CPS) that he sexually abused his 13-year-old daughter has yet to be punished by the service for his actions.
CPS found that the allegations made against the officer… were credible. Though he only confessed to molesting his 13-year-old daughter, his 10-year-old son alleged that the officer had tied him to a chair and forced him to watch as he had intercourse with his current girlfriend.
According to the daughter in statements obtained by The Virginian-Pilot, the officer actively molested her for two years before the night he took her into a bedroom, pinned her down and raped her.
He ONLY confessed to molesting his daughter??
When people get promoted instead of court-martialed and imprisoned after they sexually abuse their own children, what hope is there of bringing any change to the military’s handling of any kind of sexual abuse from within such a corrupt system?

I have a reason to live again.
There’s new never-before-heard music coming from Johnny Cash.
Cash’s estate is releasing “Out Among the Stars,” an album he recorded with Billy Sherrill in the early 1980s that was never released by Columbia Records, then disappeared when the company dropped Cash in 1986. Turns out Cash and his wife, June Carter Cash, stashed the tapes - along with just about everything else that came into their possession.
Thank you, John Carter Cash!
“We were so excited when we discovered this,” Cash said. “We were like, my goodness this is a beautiful record that nobody has ever heard. Johnny Cash is in the very prime of his voice for his lifetime. He’s pitch perfect. It’s seldom where there’s more than one vocal take. They’re a live take and they’re perfect.”
John Carter Cash doesn’t think Columbia executives realized what they had in hand. Even though his father had been a major star, tastes would soon turn to Garth Brooks and Shania Twain.
Link has a video of Sarah Vowell (!!!) talking about Johnny and June, but I’mma leave you with this JC remix that I love:
Wingnuts love to talk about the merits of home schooling, but one of the biggest providers of home schooling curriculum shows how little they actually car about education.
A popular curriculum used by home-schooled students has drawn criticism for inaccurate, misleading information and an over-reliance on rote memorization, but those aspects may not be the worst things about it.
A lot of the material that children are exposed to in the Accelerated Christian Education is just astonishingly stupid, according to a former Christian fundamentalist.
Blogger Jonny Scarmanga shared some of the multiple-choice questions he found in some ACE packets used by British home-school students Monday on the blog, Leaving Fundamentalism.
In one question aimed at 9- or 10-year-old fourth-graders, students are given this example: “Children played happily in the water spout.” They are then asked to define a water spout from three examples: “a stream of water,” “two dry ducks” or “playground.”
Another example shows that “Elisabeth Howard sat and listened carefully.” Students are then challenged to identify whether Elisabeth Howard is “a kind of airplane” or “a missionary.”
Still another question asks 12- or 13-year-old seventh-graders to identify whether sports coaches, piano tuners or librarians “can touch the lives of their students.”
If that sounds like a trick question, that’s because it is.
“The correct answer, for those puzzled, is piano tutors,” Scaramanga writes. “It’s not that ACE doesn’t believe that sports coaches or librarians can touch students’ lives. The point is that the exact sentence, ‘Piano tutors can touch the lives of their students,’ has previously appeared in (an ACE packet), and the student is expected to remember this. Verbatim regurgitation of previously seen material is the entire point of the ACE system.”

For those of you who never heard of her, Tila Tequila (originally Nguyen) is a “reality show” star who thinks she is a rapper. Originally a nude model, she parlayed her career into being a “professional” celebrity, like a third rate Kim Kardashian or Paris Hilton.
Well, apparently in the middle of last year, she suffered a brain aneurysm due to a drug over dose and went into rehab to recover. How is that recovery going? Not well apparently.
Since that time, Ms. Nguyen has decided to abandon her attempt to convert to Judaism, embrace Nazism, and has decided to spread the truth about one of history’s great misunderstood leaders, Adolf Hitler.
Tablet magazine reported on Monday that Tequila, who came into national prominence through the dating show A Shot At Love in 2007 and 2008, posted a photo illustration of herself on Facebook bearing an armband adorned with a swastika and an SS hat while standing in front of the entrance to the Auschwitz prison camp.
The caption for the picture states, “Tilisis is the GODDESS of LOVE & WAR! [sic] Learn your facts!” In another post Monday evening, Tequila — born Tila Nguyen in Singapore in 1981 — wrote, “I am She, the Queen who hath come to save you from this dark world filled with NWO parasite invaders,” an apparent reference to the “New World Order,” a popular boogeyman figure among conspiracy theorists.
She also responded to criticism of the image by linking to a Dec. 7 blog post in which she defends Hitler, saying his history was rewritten after the defeat of the Axis in World War II.
“I am not going to sit here and say that I hate Jewish people because that is not the case nor is this about Jews,” Tequila wrote. “It is about Hitler and his side of the story that was never told since he was not the victor. However, those of you with a closed mind can think I am being anti-semite all you want because I already told you that I am not, nor will I repeat myself again.”
To show how she’s embraced her new beliefs, she recorded a new song “It’s Going Down!” to explain them, bending all her marginal music talents to come up with the lyrics.
Every time you hear my name it’s going down, goin down X 4
Feeding yo mind with GMOs

Hitler no Hi Tila
Hitler no Hit Tila
Hitler No Hi Tila
“It’s insulting to Adolf Hitler to have that promiscuous, degenerate, mongrel defending him. She makes me want to vomit.”
“The sad part is this no one will listen to her.”
“I congratulate her for finding the truth.”
“Brave woman to throw her career away for truth. Jew Hollywood and media will never hire her again.”
“Very, very strange. Her entry almost seems copied and pasted from this website. I wonder if she wasn’t somehow ‘encouraged’ — either overtly or covertly — to promulgate this information in an attempt to discredit it. I, for one, am quite skeptical.”
“She sounds perfectly lucid to me.”
“She’s not a truther, she’s a plant.”
“We need more people like her spreading this type of message. As long she does not preach racial mixing, has no kids, and eventually commits suicide, it is all good.”
“She’s got 2 million followers. People will listen to her. The Zionist veneer is finally crumbling.”
“I posted a supportive comment on the page. I think we all should to show her that she is not alone in her beliefs.”
And perhaps inevitably…
“Is she of Jewish racial ancestry?”
Unfortunately, I doubt we’ve heard the last of Tila Tequila.
Check out this piece about her from Wonkette’s Happy Nice Time blogger Rebecca Schoenkopf,
Rebecca wrote it in response to this horrifically stupid thing that Tequila recently wrote,
Not sure if I should label her a wingnut or a Moonbat, but she really is far out there.

Randall Gross left a comment, and based on what he pointed out, I think its safe to say, she’s a wingnut of some kind.
The Senate Conservatives Fund has endorsed tea party candidate Dr. Milton Wolf in the race for Sen. Pat Robert’s (R-KS) Senate seat.
“Dr. Milton Wolf is a principled conservative who will fight to stop the massive spending, bailouts, and debt that are bankrupting our country,” Senate Conservatives Fund Executive Director Matt Hoskins said in a statement obtained by TPM on Tuesday.
Wolf, a radiologist and tea party favorite, is actually President Barack Obama’s second cousin. He jumped into the race for Roberts’s seat in October.
According to Dr. Wolf, “I have a message for Senators Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and Mike Lee: Your Kansas reinforcements are on the way!”
