Oh My, What A Downer!

Why, none other than Alexander Downer, the Australian Foreign Minister who tipped George Papadopoulos to the State Department as a Russian spy.

Surely it's a coincidence that Downer piled $25 million into the Clinton Foundation in 2006 and that the phony Steele Dossier and Land Down Under Report were compiled in London.

Don't say GCHQ/MI6 or to put it another way:

What it shows is that the real meddling wasn't the work of the Terrible Russkis; it was the doing of some of our closest allies, determined to get Hillary Clinton elected. The Australians were owed favors. Christopher Steele got money from the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign. So they all worked together to do their bit to get Hillary elected. It shows that the extent of Deep State isn't something confined to the U.S. It stinks.

Land of Hope and Glory,



Some say that if you shine a light into the dark recesses of the world you'll find insects.

But shining the light can be a risky business, not least when it comes to operation Crossfire Hurricane and the slow motion coup against a duly elected president. 

Go ask Adam Lovinger who blew the whistle on Stefan Halper and found himself suspended without pay from the Pentagon's Office of Net Assessment.

Here's Lovinger's attorney:

“Yet, we were puzzled by the unprecedented ferocity of efforts to discredit Mr. Lovinger, including leaks from DoD of false and defamatory information to the press,” he said. “Our assumption was that the other contractor about whom Mr. Lovinger explicitly raised concerns – a close confidante of Hillary Clinton – was the reason for the sustained assault on Mr. Lovinger, and that certainly may have played a role.”
Bigley suspects it was more than the Clinton-connected contracts adding, “Mr. Lovinger unwittingly shined a spotlight on the deep state’s secret weapon – Stefan Halper – and threatened to expose the truth about the Trump-Russia collusion narrative than being plotted: that it was all a set-up.”

Something rotten in the deep state of the Union? Surely not, Halper was only paid $1 million for his bit part role in the coup. A sum, curiously enough, similar to General Flynn's legal fees.

You can read the whole thing here and while you're at it ask where is any evidence, whatsoever, of the Trump campaign colluding with Russia?

I'm off fishing,

Pope Implicated in Alleged Sex Scandal Cover Up

There's something about the rainbow riding antics of the Worldwide Anglican Non Communion that makes it a fair target. 

Is ACoC (Anglican Church of Canada) lost in the icy void of deep space, is the CofE controlled by Mantis People and the Episcopal Church setting up Jesus Movement worship spaces on the Red Planet, all to the beat of heart warming liturgical dance? 

Good question but when it comes to the broader Church things get more serious. As in Pope Francis and other senior members of the Hierarchy allegedly covering up Cardinal McCarrick's gay sex abuse.

Here's Damian Thompson:

Pope Francis stands accused this morning (26 August) of covering up the crimes of ex-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick of Washington, one of the most senior and sinister sex abusers in the history of the Catholic Church.
The allegation comes from the Vatican’s former apostolic nuncio to the United States, Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, 77, who has called on the Pope to resign.
In a devastating 11-page written testament, Viganò says Francis lifted severe sanctions imposed on McCarrick for sexual wrongdoing by Pope Benedict XVI, the existence of which has not been made public until now.
Viganò writes that he told Francis in person in 2013 that McCarrick ‘had corrupted generations of seminarians and priests and Pope Benedict ordered him to withdraw to a life of prayer and penance’.
But, says the former nuncio, the new Pope decided instead to cover up for the retired Archbishop of Washington – and made him one of his most trusted advisers.

It's scathing stuff and Thompson gets right down to it.

But the document’s (Vigano's) detailed allegations cannot to be dismissed on grounds of bias. Either they are true or they are false. If they are true, then Pope Francis has actively promoted the career of a sex abuser, knowing of the allegations against him – and sabotaged Pope Benedict’s attempt to protect the Church from any further crimes by Theodore McCarrick.

You can read the whole thing here and here.

Pray for the Church,

Melania Mondays!

America's popular and glamorous First Lady got a boost from an unlikely source when none other than the notorious prostitute, Stormy Daniels, leaped to her defense.

"People should stop talking about her, maybe she’s happy," Stormy told the UK's Mirror newspaper, “Everything we say about her is a projection. Some people misplace sorrow and pity on another person.”

The celebrity adult entertainer was responding to attacks made on Melania by wacky, vicious and hated Omarosa, who claims in her book Unhinged that the First Lady is "counting every minute" until she can divorce the President.

In other news, Melania's getting ready to fly the flag in Africa, which she plans to visit in October. 

"This will be my first time traveling to Africa," said Melania in a statement, "and I am excited to educate myself on the issues facing children throughout the continent, while also learning about its rich culture and history."

Well done Melania for doing your part to make America great again.

Well This Rocks And Then Some

Senator John McCain has died and so it only seems right to post this video, via Borepatch, to lift everyone's spirits. Do you remember how the media hated, scorned and despised McCain, who lost so disastrously to Obama? 

Now they're lauding him as an "American Hero." Such patriots. Other news outlets dubbed him "No Name."

Whatever, may he rest in peace,


Fixing Up The Compound

I won't deny it, having a Compound's awesome but here's the thing, if it's made of painted wood it has to be maintained. Otherwise, let implacable logic show, the paint peels off, the wood rots and the whole mighty edifice of the thing falls down.

A Typical Detroit Street Scene

Sure, ruins are nostalgic, melancholy tributes to past greatness and have their value, no doubt about it but you can't live in them. Unless it's Detroit, which is different.

Rig & Porch

With that in mind, we got the place repainted and the job's almost done but there's a glitch. A load bearing beam under the front porch has been eaten away by ants or termites and must be replaced. It's a problem here in Texas.

Nearly There

And it'll take a while because of our crew's work schedule. Well, the beast won't fall down in the next month or so and there it is. An historic Texan home saved from becoming an historic Texas ruin.

Speaking of ruin, there's a lot of yard signs everywhere announcing "Beto." What the devil's a "Beto", some kind of sandwich?

Looking forward to Opening Day,

Take That, Racists!

At last, at long last, Vanderbilt University is opening an exclusively trans medical clinic.

The trans rainbow clinic is set to open on Fridays and will bring in a once a month "team comprising urology, plastic surgery, and discuss patients’ varying surgical needs.”

Ring Of Fire

You may have been following the Russian Collusion probe against against our President, which has so far busted Manafort for 12 year old tax skulduggery and a GIANT RAT for giving money to prostitutes.

That's appalling, you say as you reach for the smelling salts in a shocked fit of Victoriana, all the while wondering where is this Russian Collusion, where's the evidence? 

But don't be dismayed, sit back, take a load off, listen to Ring of Fire and set your mind at rest.

Your Old Friend,



For years, bioarcheologists speculated that Homo Floresiensis or "Hobbits" owe their tiny 60" stature to island minisculism, the theory that living on an island with limited resources causes species to breed down in size. However, shocking new evidence suggests otherwise.

Explorers on the remote Indonesian island of Flores, home of the dwarflike Hobbits and their possible descendants, the Ebu Gogo, have discovered the fossilized skeletons of giant rats. The largest of these weighed in at a hefty 11 lbs and were the size of dogs.

Burn and scrape marks on the 45,000 year old rat bones suggest that Flores Hobbits ate the rats, who roamed the island for thousands of years before going extinct.

Or did they?

You be the judge,


Are Flores Hobbits Ebu Gogo?

In 2003, stunned archeologists discovered tiny humanlike skeletons in a cave on the island of Flores, Indonesia. Could these dwarf relatives of modern humans be the ancestors of the island's mysterious race of jungle dwelling pygmies, the Ebu Gogo?

Named Homo Floresiensis or "Hobbits," the Flores skeletons reveal a small race of hominin that stood around 3 feet tall and had a brain the size of a grapefruit. Initially dated between 100,000-12,000 years ago, paleoarcheologists speculated that the pint sized creatures may have interacted with Homo Sapiens and could even exist today.

Rumors of a pygmy race of living in the impenetrable jungles of Flores have persisted for centuries. Called Ebu Gogo, whose name means "grandmother who eats everything," these strange creatures are reported to steal food, kidnap children and even mimic human speech. At 60" tall, they're also good candidates to be the Hobbits' descendants.

However, new dating suggests the Hobbits left their cave far earlier than previously thought, 50,000 years ago. This, say experts, makes it unlikely for the height-challenged beings to exist today.

"Sorry, cryptozoologists -- 'Little Foot' and 'Hobbits' are very unlikely to have persisted from 50,000 years ago to today," says science communicator Kristina Killgrove.

Have the little people we know as Hobbits died out or do some still live among us today? You, the reader, be the judge.

Hail to the Chief,

Right minded people everywhere were shocked and appalled when the Satanic Temple set up a temporary shrine to Satan at Arkansas' state capitol.

The Baphomet statue, which has creepy overtones of pedophilia was put up to protest a monument featuring the 10 Commandments. If the state can endorse the one then it has to allow the other, runs Satanic Temple logic.

And to be fair, it's all a larf. Until you wake up and discover a satanic portal in your backyard and a demon's gnawing on your buddy's elbow.

Speaking of demons, here's Asia.

Rumors that Asia's a devil witch pedo occultist are entirely that, rumors. And lest you forget, Baphomet's trans.

Sex Scandal

Here at the Compound we want to post something uplifting about America's popular and glamorous First Lady, because it's Monday. Instead it's got to be this, Bishop Robert Morlino's "letter to the faithful" concerning the scandal roiling the dioceses of Pennsylvania.

Here's an excerpt:

It is time to admit that there is a homosexual subculture within the hierarchy of the Catholic Church that is wreaking great devastation in the vineyard of the Lord. The Church’s teaching is clear that the homosexual inclination is not in itself sinful, but it is intrinsically disordered in a way that renders any man stably afflicted by it unfit to be a priest. And the decision to act upon this disordered inclination is a sin so grave that it cries out to heaven for vengeance, especially when it involves preying upon the young or the vulnerable. Such wickedness should be hated with a perfect hatred. Christian charity itself demands that we should hate wickedness just as we love goodness. But while hating the sin, we must never hate the sinner, who is called to conversion, penance, and renewed communion with Christ and His Church, through His inexhaustible mercy.
At the same time, however, the love and mercy which we are called to have even for the worst of sinners does not exclude holding them accountable for their actions through a punishment proportionate to the gravity of their offense. In fact, a just punishment is an important work of love and mercy, because, while it serves primarily as retribution for the offense committed, it also offers the guilty party an opportunity to make expiation for his sin in this life (if he willingly accepts his punishment), thus sparing him worse punishment in the life to come. Motivated, therefore, by love and concern for souls, I stand with those calling for justice to be done upon the guilty.
The sins and crimes of McCarrick, and of far too many others in the Church, bring suspicion and mistrust upon many good and virtuous priests, bishops, and cardinals, and suspicion and mistrust upon many great and respectable seminaries and so many holy and faithful seminarians. The result of the first instance of mistrust harms the Church and the very good work we do in Christ’s name. It causes others to sin in their thoughts, words, and deeds — which is the very definition of scandal. And the second mistrust harms the future of the Church, since our future priests are at stake.

You can read the whole thing here. One noted evangelical journalist commented, "That's the best statement I've ever seen."

And credit where it's due, can you imagine Justin Welby, for example, calling out the crimes of a "homosexual subculture"? 

Right on target, Bishop Morlino.

World's Oldest Human Fossil Discovered in Morocco!

Paleoanthropologists  were stunned to discover the world's oldest human fossil, in a Moroccan cave. The fossil remains from Jebel Irhoud date back to a remarkable 300,000 BC, pushing back the history of the human race by some 100,000 years.


“This stuff is a time and a half older than anything else put forward as H. sapiens,” said baffled boffin John Fleagle of the State University of New York in Stony Brook.

not human?

However, there's doubt about whether the fossil is actually human, its teeth and jawline align with Homo Sapiens but its cranium is elongated, suggesting a different kind of brain than those humans enjoy today.

a different brain

Still, whether human or humanlike, the Moroccan fossil is important. “It's placed at a critical time period when the earliest members of our species could have evolved, and they’re critical for better understanding the patterns of physical and behavioral evolution,"  says Zeray Alemseged from the University of Chicago.

Moroccan Fossil

As debate simmers over the ancient Moroccan fossil, the quest for the origin of our species continues.

Are We Descended From Apes?

Are we descended from apes and chimpanzees? Good question and one expert, Robin Crompton of the University of Liverpool, says it's the other way around.

Based on the fossilized bones of a 3.7 million year old human ancestor, Austrolipithecus, Crompton believes that our early ancestors lived in trees and were bipedal, they could walk upright. Chimps and other monkeys went on to knuckle drag in the interests of speed and ease but we didn't.

This means that the apes and ourselves, for that matter, come from a common ancestor that's more like us than some kind of chimp and that we took the high road and the apes didn't. Well done, human forebearers, you made the right choice.

Well so what. So a lot. We've been taught that humans started out as chimps, got bigger, became apes and then somehow became rational or irrational human beings. Ascent of the Species and thank you very much, Darwin, Boom.

But this lineal progression may not be true. Something very like a human existed in the happy canopy of the trees, according to Crompton, and advanced on. Others, coming from the same stock devolved into bestial apes, leaving us where we are today.

I'm no expert but maybe Crompton has a point, his early hominin fossil seems to say so, but consider this. When did monkeys become rational? When did apes start to reason?

We did, at some point, albeit imperfectly. When and how did this happen and why didn't it happen for the rest of the monkeys and still hasn't now. No one knows but it should have done, right? 

If we all come from a common arboreal ancestor and the ability to reason is simply part of the evolutionary process, then the monkeys that devolved from us should be able to pick up the plot, but they haven't.

Perhaps they're evolutionary dead ends. But serious question. There's a massive leap from irrational animal to rational human. How did that occur and if it could do so for us and not our ape allies, then why not? 

After all, we have a common ancestor, or not.

The Adamites?

Around 7000 years before Christ (BC) we're told that mankind, which had been living a jolly hunter-gather sort of life, suddenly domesticated wheat, became farmers and settled down. Nuts, berries and the odd Mastodon steak, so delicious, didn't cut it for them anymore. No, they wanted to farm.

With that, the whole edifice of civilization began, Pyramids, temples, Emperors, armies, philosophers, the FBI, lying, venal, slick, aggressive mainstream media, all of what we know today as civilization came into being. Thanks to wheat at 7000 BC.

Then a German archeologist discovered Gobekli Tepe in Turkey, a temple complex of monumental masonry that dates back to 10,000 BC or 12,000 years before now. 

There they were, the Flintsones, scavenging about for roots, bark, the occasionally unfortunate saber tooth tiger and, as a side hobby, building huge stone temples with sophisticated lithic art. And then, waiting some three thousand years to start farming.

Something doesn't seem right with this picture but there it is. An obviously civilized, stonebuilding, aesthetically skilled culture putting up temples(?) when they should have been foraging about for nuts and wondering why their uncured animal skin clothes smelled so bad. And then, three millennia later, getting it together to grow wheat.

Weird, right? Some speculate that a comet or fragments of one, smashed into or burst above the North American ice sheet around 13,000 years ago, causing massive flooding and an influx of cold, glacial water into the Atlantic. Hence the Younger Dryas cooling and mega fauna extinctions.

Long story short, it would have been a cataclysmic event, characterized by huge flooding, a rise in sea level, die-off level conflagration and global cooling. 

This, some believe, was the Deluge and from it emerged rare survivors from an Ice Age civilization who started afresh, with the seeds, literally, of a previous world. They did so in places such as Gobekli Tepe.

But then, just as civilization began to flourish again, the earth passed through the orbital train of cometary debris from the previous disaster, shutting down sites like Gobekli Tepe, notoriously backfilled around 9,500 BC for no apparent reason. Were they attempting to save their temples from the coming catastrophe?

Who knows, but thanks to intrepid Germans, we can see the mute testimony of their culture today and wonder at the tenacity of the people, the Adamites?, who made it through earthquake, fire and flood to domesticate wheat and build the pyramids.

The rest, of course, is history.

Your Friend,

New Mexico Jihad Madness

So, a compound full of heavily armed, fanatical Moslem Jihadis was busted in New Mexico. There they were in the desert, training kids to commit suicide attacks and, in passing, killing a 3 year old. That's right, Law Enforcement found a dead three year old on the compound.


But that's OK if you're Democrat Judge, Sarah Backus, who released the Jihad Moslems on recognizance. Why? Well, you wouldn't want to be a racist or anything for locking up Muslim people of color who killed a 3 year old and trained kids to be terrorists.

Our Minneapolis desk had this to say.

The left goes on about taking guns away and "think of the children." Well here's a Jihad nutjob TRAINING SCHOOL SHOOTERS and he/she isn't even jailed. Murdered a 3 year old too. WTF?!?

The Leader. Did it kill the 3 year old?

Outrageous isn't in it. Apparently the leader of the New Mexican Muslim death cult's been arrested by ICE. The very same agency the Democrats want to abolish because it's you know, so very racist.
