Thanks to the Arkansas Leader for This about the Lonoke Mafia (allegedly)

Thanks to the Arkansas Leader for this great photo job. Ain't the prosecutor a hottie? Ain't the others scary lookin'? BLOPS recon group is not trying to get in to see the prosecutor anymore as she is a busy lady dealing with this horrible mess in Lonoke. It is a city on edge. But, things seem to be calming somewhat.
While there today, we did see lots of suits riding around in g-cars. We suspect some sort of federal activity may be happening. Plus, Lonoke is really not a bad little place. Lots of friendly folks and happy kids milling around and a couple of great places to put on the feedbag at.
They'll recover, but they sure need a good dipping to get rid of the stench coming from city hall. Might be time for Lonoke voters to clean house, freshen up and start over.
Oh, and we saw some big shot reporters there too. We're staying tuned to the Arkansas Leader and even the Dem-Gaz. We have hopes they'll flush out a covey of dirty quail. Melroy (BLOPS home refreshing our batteries division)

Lonoke Mafia (allegedly) Field Report

Agents have been reporting in to BLOPS mobile command somewhere near Lonoke. The following seems to be a consensus report:

One of the real victims in all this appears to be the poor mayor. It seems he bought into the charismatic and mesmerizing and self-aggrandizing ways of former and disgraced (allegedly) chief of police Jay Campbell. Nearly everyone agents spoke with had glowing comments about Mayor Privett but not so glowing ones about former and disgraced (allegedly) chief of police Jay Campbell. Many people appear very intimidated by the police force and its reputation since former and disgraced chief of police (allegedly) Jay Campbell assumed control. More to follow. Melroy (BLOPS field commander)

Oh, and don't think the fact that the Jailhouse Madam (allegedly) Kelly Campbell was wearing camo when arrested was lost on us...we just don't know how to talk about that since we're so fond of camo ourselves. We may just have to re-evaluate our wardrobe choices. M Posted by Picasa

The Lonoke Stinks Story and Updates

Thursday, February 02, 2006

A Good One from Gay David

After numerous repetitions of "We don't know if Osama is still alive," Osama himself decided to send George Bush a letter in his own handwriting to let him know he was still in the game.

Bush opened the letter and it appeared to contain a single line of coded message:

Bush was baffled, so he e-mailed it to Condi Rice. Condi and her aides had no clue either, so they sent it to the FBI. No one could solve it at the FBI so it went to the CIA, then to the NSA. With no clue as to its meaning they eventually asked Britain's MI6 for help. Within a minute MI6 cabled the White House with this reply:

"Tell the President he's holding the message upside down."

How Damned Drunk or Stoned can you get?


A Jacksonville man accused of smothering a baby girl after becoming intoxicated and resting on top of her has pleaded innocent to a manslaughter charge.

Twenty-five-year-old Christopher Johnson remained in the Pulaski County jail today on a 50,000 dollar bond, a jailer said. Friday, Johnson entered the plea to the Thursday morning death of three-month-old Jade McWilliams.

At the arraignment, Deputy Prosecutor Sarah Priebe said Johnson has a criminal history that includes convictions for theft, breaking or entering, and carrying a weapon.

The baby's lifeless body was found in a recliner at the child's home in northern Pulaski County. She had a large bruise on her side, and sheriff's deputies said Johnson was intoxicated on either drugs or alcohol.

This story stinks worse than Agent 420's boots after a .1 mile march. How damned incapacitated do you have to be to sit down on and smother a 3 month old baby? What about parents here? Where were they? Tragedy in a trailer... Melroy

Everybody's doing Lists. Here's one--

9 Things I Hate About Everyone:

1. People who point at their wrist while asking for the time.... I know where my watch is pal, where the hell is yours? Do I point at my crotch when I ask where the toilet is?

2. People who are willing to get off their ass to search the entire room for the T.V. remote because they refuse to walk to the T.V. and change the channel manually.

3. When people say "Oh you just want to have your cake and eat it too". Damn right! What good is cake if you can't eat it?

4. When people say "it's always the last place you look". Of course it is. Why the hell would you keep looking after you've found it? Do people do this? Who and where are they? Gonna Kick their asses!

5. When people say while watching a film "did you see that?". No, Loser, I paid $12 to come to the cinema and stare at the damn floor.

6. People who ask "Can I ask you a question?".... Didn't really give me a choice there, did ya sunshine?

7. When something is 'new and improved!'. Which is it? If it's new, then there has never been anything before it. If it's an improvement, then there must have been something before it, couldn't be new.

8. When people say "life is short". What the hell?? Life is the longest damn thing anyone ever does!! What can you do that's longer?

9. When you are waiting for the bus and someone asks "Has the bus come yet?". If the bus came would I be standing here, dumbass?

Your Monday Weather Courtesy of BLOPS Special Weather Agent Robinson

Showers and thunderstorms will develop Monday in advance of a cold front.

There could be a few severe thunderstorms over the southeastern half of the state. This would begin late Monday afternoon and continue through the evening hours, exiting the southeast corner of the state a couple of hours after midnight.

Damaging winds look to be the main threat,although there could be some large hail as well.

Modest instability and fairly sparse low-level moisture should limit the severe weather potential from what it would be otherwise.

Rainfall amounts are still very much open to question.

At this point, I will say amounts over the southeastern half of the state will average1/4 to 3/4 inch, with local totals over an inch. Over the northwestern half of the state, amounts should be around 1/4 inch with some totals around 1/2 inch. Some of this rain will occur with the showers and thunderstorms ahead of the front, but some of it will also fall in the cooler air behind the front.

On the very back edge of the rain, temperatures could become cold enough for some rain mixed with snow, or possibly a change-over to all light snow, in northwest sections Monday night into Tuesday morning. There is a smaller possibility that this could also occur in north central sections on Tuesday morning.

As noted above, this will be on the very back edge of the precipitation, so accumulations are not very likely.

I will issue the next message around 9:00 AM Monday.

Kiss My Oui Oui Ass you Frogs

The French: Classic Comments

"France has neither winter nor summer nor morals. Apart from these drawbacks it is a fine country. France has usually been governed by prostitutes." --Mark Twain.

"I would rather have a German division in front of me than a French one behind me." --General George S. Patton.

"Going to war without France is like going deer hunting without your accordion." --Norman Schwartzkopf.

"We can stand here like the French, or we can do something about it." --Marge Simpson

"As far as I'm concerned, war always means failure." --Jacques Chirac, President of France

"As far as France is concerned, you're right." --Rush Limbaugh,

"The only time France wants us to go to war is when the German Army is sitting in Paris sipping coffee." --Regis Philbin.

"The French are a smallish, monkey-looking bunch and not dressed any better, on average, than the citizens of Baltimore. True, you can sit outside in Paris and drink little cups of coffee, but why this is more stylish than sitting inside and drinking large glasses of whisky I don't know." --P.J O'Rourke (1989).

"You know, the French remind me a little bit of an aging actress of the 1940s who was still trying to dine out on her looks but doesn't have the face for it." --John McCain, U.S. Senator

"You know why the French don't want to bomb Saddam Hussein? Because he hates America, he loves mistresses and wears a beret. He is French, people." --Conan O'Brien

"I don't know why people are surprised that France won't help us get Saddam out of Iraq. After all, France wouldn't help us get Hitler out of France either" --Jay Leno.

"The last time the French asked for 'more proof' it came marching into Paris under a German flag." --David Letterman

"Only thing worse than a Frenchman is a Frenchman who lives in Canada." --Ted Nugent.

"War without France would be like ... uh ... World War II."

"The favorite bumper sticker in Washington D.C. right now is one that says 'First Iraq, then France.'" --Tom Brokaw.

"What do you expect from a culture and a nation that exerted more of its national will fighting against Disney World and Big Macs than the Nazis?" --Dennis Miller.

"It is important to remember that the French have always been there when they needed us." --Alan Kent

"They've taken their own precautions against al-Qa'ida. To prepare for an attack, each Frenchman is urged to keep duct tape, a white flag, and a three-day supply of mistresses in the house." --Argus Hamilton

"Somebody was telling me about the French Army rifle that was being advertised on eBay the other day -- the description was, 'Never shot. Dropped once'." --Rep. Roy Blount (MO)

"The French will only agree to go to war when we've proven we've found truffles in Iraq." --Dennis Miller

“The French Suck”—Col. Melroy Frumpleheimer (BLOPS Command)

Q. What did the mayor of Paris say to the German Army as they entered the city in WWII?
A. Table for 100,000 m'sieur?

"Do you know how many Frenchmen it takes to defend Paris? It's not known, it's never been tried." --Rep. Roy Blount (MO)

"Do you know it only took Germany three days to conquer France in WWII? And that's because it was raining." --John Xereas, Manager, DC Improv.

The AP and UPI reported that the French Government announced after the London bombings that it has raised its terror alert level from Run to Hide. The only two higher levels in France are Surrender and Collaborate. The rise in the alert level was precipitated by a recent fire which destroyed France's white flag factory, effectively disabling their military.

and finally...drumroll please...

French Ban Fireworks at Euro Disney - (AP), Paris, March 5, 2003 The French Government announced today that it is imposing a ban on the use of fireworks at Euro Disney. The decision comes the day after a nightly fireworks display at the park, located just 30 miles outside of Paris, caused the soldiers at a nearby French Army garrison to surrender to a group of Czech tourists.

Another Tease from BLOPS' Weather Ninja

From John Robinson:

We will probably have some thunderstorms in Arkansas overnight tonight,and in the southeastern third of the state Wednesday morning. Severeweather is not likely, but there is a possibility of small hail in a fewof the storms. Rainfall amounts are not likely to exceed an inch.

Saturday night will present the possibility of some winter weather inthe state. The weather maps are suggesting that the air aloft will becold enough for snow or sleet over the northern two-thirds of Arkansas. However, temperatures just above the ground will be more marginal overmany areas. So, this is just a heads-up that there could be some winterweather in the state Saturday night, but things are far from certain atthis time.

Beware the ICE

Alert- This weather event may end up creating very icy roads in the Central Arkansas area. You have been forewarned. If it's icy-- keep your asses home. If it's snow- go like crazy! Melroy


Under no circumstances should any BLOPS agent or trainee ever fart in your wetsuit. See BLOPS Agent 420's photo. Melroys (BLOPS Command)

Lest We Forget-

Please remember those lost and those who fought in the real war. Today at 3 at the State Capitol there will be a Pearl Harbor observance. Make it if you can. Pearl Harbor survivors are fast leaving our midst. They will never know the gratitude we feel.

Pride runs deep in us and actually, I hate to admit it, whenever I am around World War II vets, I get weak-kneed and misty eyed. I know I know. But, in all seriousness, I am very grateful. But, I still think Chimp Boy sucks. Melroy (BLOPS eternally grateful division)

Did You Go to Kroger and Get Eggs and Beer?

If you didn't, you should. Although we will not get what they have in this photo-- ain't it purty?-- Central Arkansas is still going to get dusted. As usual, the LR area will probably just get enough to turn normal drivers into fuckin' mouth breathin' slobberin' idiots.

From our BLOPS vantage point we will be watching all of this with great glee. My doggies, Scotch and Soda, are all excited. They love the snow. Both have been glued to weather weenie Ned Perme and weather idiot Tom Brannon for updates.

At BLOPS, we maintain a constant communication line with weather god John Robinson. (Who by the way is supposed to be on Commie Lynch's radio show today.)

One thing we do need to watch for in our area is that this weather event might start as freezing rain. Remember several years ago? Man, that ice storm sucked. Anyway, watch out for this although the spritzing will probably start after we are all safe in our humble abodes. One thing, if you do get out on the ice, remember, DON'T SLAM ON THE BRAKES YOU DILL WEEDS--- PUMP, PUMP, PUMP! (easy Gay David)

So, if you are expecting huge amounts of wet sloppy fun snow, move north. If you want our normal "crippling send in only essential personnel" snow, stay tuned. Hopefully when we all get up tomorrow we will experience that quiet blanket of frozen precipitation followed by sloppy ass mud holes and nasty ass dogs. Melroy (BLOPS on top of the weather division)

SNOW REPORT and UPDATE FROM BLOPS Meteorologist Emeritus John Robinson

Get your asses to Kroger--- NOW!

It still looks as though we will see some winter weather in Arkansas.

The precipitation could begin Wednesday afternoon in the western half ofthe state. Northwest sections should see only snow. Elsewhere, afternoon temperatures near the ground will be marginal for snow; thus,a mixture of rain, sleet, and some snow is more likely.

Wednesday night, the precipitation will overspread the state. In areas where the precipitation begins as a mixture, it should turn over to all snow except, perhaps, in extreme southern sections.

All precipitation should end from west to east on Thursday morning.

Snowfall amounts in the 1 to 2 inch range look most likely overall. The smallest amounts will probably be in southern Arkansas. In the more mountainous parts of the state, some 3 or even 4 inch totals could occur. A lot of these accumulations may end up being on grassy areas, cars, etc. The temperature of the ground is still fairly warm, so there will probably be some melting of snow on the ground, especially as the snow begins to fall initially. This should help keep snowfall totals somewhat below what they would be if this were the middle of winter. As far as the roads go, there probably will be some melting initially.

However, even with the ground temperatures being what they are, the snow may come down heavy enough at times to put some snow on the roads in almost any part of the state. This will be especially true as we get on into the hours after dark on Wednesday evening.

Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow!

From BLOPS' main weather guy- John Robinson--

"I will just cover the basics today as the weather maps have been far from certain about the winter weather threat that is coming up. A more detailed message will be issued Tuesday morning.

The winter weather threat should begin early Wednesday morning in the southwestern part of the state, spread northeastward during the day Wednesday and Wednesday night, then exit eastern Arkansas Thursday morning.

At this point, it looks like the northern half of Arkansas will have the greatest threat of winter weather. For the northern third of the state, it should be snow, with perhaps a little rain mixed in due to somewhat marginal temperatures for snow during the day Wednesday. For the central third of the state, it appears that snow or sleet will be most likely, but, due to even more marginal temperatures, there may be rain at times, especially during the day Wednesday.

As far as amounts go, where all snow falls, totals will probably be an inch or two, with perhaps three inches at some of the higher elevations." [...}

Frumpleheimer refused to answer questions about how the device works but did say it had been "partially inspired by the recent love boat captain's success in kicking the pirates of the seas of Somalia asses." It has been reported by persons in a close proximity to the suspected BLOPS bunker that they hear loud music coming from within. Police officials refused to comment.

A Guest Blog From One of Our Beloved BLOPS Boys

I would really hope that the American people would be wiser after nearly a total of 12 years of Bush-ocracy than to vote in yet another BUSH! I find it, at least at this point, a very long shot, nearly impossible, for Jeb to be elected in '08. But, I am constantly amazed...and disappointed by the American people in political matters. But what do I know, if the evangelicals decide that God ordains that yet another Bush take control, if it's in God's ultimate plan, then who am I to disagree and think for myself.

Jeb Bush leaves open White House bid


Sunday, November 13, 2005; 10:31 AM

BERLIN (Reuters) - Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, the brother of U.S. President George W. Bush, ruled out running for president in 2008 but left open the possibility of a subsequent bid in an interview with a German magazine published on Sunday.

Jeb Bush, who is scheduled to visit Germany this week, told Focus weekly he had not thought much about running for the office held by his father and older brother except to rule out the next election at the end of George W. Bush's second term.

"You should never say never. But for the 2008 election, my answer is definitely no," he said, in comments translated into German by the magazine.

Asked whether his answer meant a later challenge was possible, he said: "Let's say there's a vague chance."

Bush, 52, said he spoke frequently with his brother and visited the White House whenever he was in Washington but he said the two mainly discussed family matters or sport.
