    This last weekend I decided to try a new cigar. This cigar is a MUWAT (My Uzi Weighs A Ton) Kentucky Fire Cured Swamp Thang. This is put out by Drew Estate as part of their MUWAT line and their Kentucky Fire Cured Sub-line. This is one of the more unique cigars out there due to it’s combination of Kentucky Fire Cured tobacco and a dual wrapped wrapper featuring a brilliant green candela wrapper and a fire cured wrapper, the transition masked by the band. The candela imparts a sweeter smoke to the campfire like qualities of the fire cured wrapper. Unfortunately Drew Estate is keeping silent on the composition of the filler and binder. I can assume, through experience that the tobaccos used in this cigar are probably exclusively Nicaraguan. The cigars are manufactured in the Esteli region of Nicaragua in the Joya De Nicaragua factory, the oldest continually operating factory in Nicaragua.

    Upon removing the cigar from the cello my first impression is of wood smoke. It has a very strong campfire like smell and a slight earthiness. The cigar lights well and cleanly, the burn remains clean and straight until the end of the smoke. Throughout the cigar there is a flavor of smoke, smoked meat (unusually), and a bit of sweetness, similar to a good barbecue rub that isn’t overpowering, just a light touch of sweet on the back of the tongue. I paired it with an unsweetened iced tea. Unlike some cigars I have tried, this one didn’t really change much during the smoke. It remained a good, medium to full body smoke, beginning to end. It was neither the weakest cigar I’ve tried nor the strongest. This is a cigar that won’t make you dizzy, but will leave you with a pleasant taste. I don’t think it would be my every day smoke, but for a once in a while cigar, it’s perfect. I also have a Swamp Rat resting in my humidor for a future smoke.

    On to politics. Meghan McCain may have finally realize the reason she is on the View. It’s not so she can speak, it’s so they can claim to be “fair” because they have a “conservative”. After reading about her performance, this is all I could think of.

    Here is the relevant article.
    ‘View’ Shuts Down Meghan McCain After She Brings Up Clinton Funded Dossier

    Monday on ABC’s The View, things got heated when discussing the breaking news that morning about ex-Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort had been indicted by FBI special counsel Robert Mueller. After announcing the news, the audience cheered as the panel joked that they hoped President Trump would be next. As co-host Meghan McCain brought up Hillary Clinton’s funding of the Russian dossier, co-hosts Sunny Hostin and Joy Behar angrily shut her down, insisting that Democrats and Clinton had nothing to do with any Russia collusion.

    Whoopi chuckled while announcing the news that Paul Manafort had been indicted by the FBI this morning. The audience roared in approval as The View producers played a fake clip of President Trump being arrested by the FBI.

      This is an article in Politico Mag this morning that is going to be getting some attention. It’s by Donna Brazille and it’s being touted, I think, as a ‘tell all’. In any event, it looks like she tries to nail Hillary to the wall, the cross and the railroad tracks. I’m busy this morning so will have to save it for later, but yinz can get started.

      Inside Hillary Clinton’s Secret Takeover of the DNC – When I was asked to run the Democratic Party after the Russians hacked our emails, I stumbled onto a shocking truth about the Clinton campaign.

      https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2017/11/02/clinton-brazile-hacks-2016-215774

      I’m betting that somewhere in there, she’s going to say Hillary was completely responsible for the Fusion GPS payments and the DNC has no culpability.

      @ eaglesoars:

      Another don’t-have-time-to-read (but the mortgage interest deduction cut in half?)

      It cuts the maximum deductible mortgage from $1 million to $500,000. And it’s grandfathered for existing loans. That’s really not going to affect that many people outside of NY and CA.

      The only thing I see in there that would affect me is eliminating the student loan interest deduction, but that’s going to be mostly offset by doubling the standard deduction.

      It’s a book excerpt. She doesn’t talk about Fusion GPS in it, but yeah, I’m sure she does blame Hillary in the book itself.

      The excerpt is about the convoluted way in which Hillary took control of the DNC long before becoming the nominee, which goes a long way toward explaining why the primary process was rigged in her favor.

      I would write stuff for my blog, DG, but you always beat me to the subject matter and do a better job of it. I suppose I should stick to the Smart Ass angle on anything, and cross-reference people who want something to meat in it to come see you.

      Oh and that VIEW cow going on about Manafort and Russia. As if we needed more proof that these cows were dumber than dirt – they had Rosie “fire never melted steel” O’Donut as a panelist, I would like to point out to them that the Manafort indictment had to do with Manaforts finances and his dealings with the UKRAINE. Not RUSSIA. The words “Trump” and “Russia” do not appear in the indictment.

      This is beyond cool. They’ve found some sort of cavity in the Great Pyramid. The way they found it: muon tomography that tracks particles that bombard Earth at close to the speed of light and penetrate deeply into solid objects. No, I don’t know either, but it’s REALLY COOL!!

      They said the newly discovered internal structure was at least 100 feet (30 meters) long, and located above a hallway measuring about 155 feet long (47 meters) called the Grand Gallery, one of a series of passageways and chambers inside the immense pyramid. The researchers said it constitutes the first major inner structure found in the Great Pyramid since the 19th century.

      I just realized I have never understood the tax code. I thought if you made X amount of money, the entire amount of X is taxed at whatever rate X put you into, e.g., If you make $200k and that puts you in the 25% bracket, the entire $200k gets taxed at 25%.

      d’uh.

      Donna Brazille is just another lying piece of excrement like all the rest. How many times must the point be made? Seriously!

      THERE WAS NO RUSSIAN HACK OF THE DNC. IT COULDN’T HAPPEN BECAUSE THE DATA TRANSMISSION RATES WERE TOO LOW TO ALOW IT. The same old tired set of lies is trotted out time ad again.

      It was an INSIDE JOB FOLKS. THE DNC WASN’T ‘hacked’ . the DATA WAS STOLEN PHYSICALLY ON A THUNB DRIVE. and the possible thief probably met his end in a DC hospital at the hands of corrupt members of the DC Police several days later!

      There was a ThinkProgress babe that posted on Twitter yesterday, asking why Trump called for NY Truck Slime to go to Gitmo but not the Las Vegas shooter.

      She deleted the Tweet when several hundred people told her that the fact that the LV shooter was DEAD was probably a prime consideration. But not before Twitchy got hold of it and it was retweeted to the Conservative Twitterverse so we could have our morning laugh.

      welp. Another shark in the volcano. They mapped the cosmos and surprise surprise! there aren’t many surprises. The matter we can ‘see’ comprises only 4% of the stuff out there. Here is an interview with some of the cosmologists.

      ————
      THE KAVLI FOUNDATION: The Dark Energy Survey just confirmed that matter as we know it makes up only four percent of the universe. That means 96 percent is stuff we can neither see nor touch, and we have pretty much no idea what it really is. Why are these new findings actually good news?

      RISA WECHSLER: It does seem very strange that the results are good news, right? Forty years ago, nobody would’ve guessed that we apparently live in a universe in which most of the matter is stuff that doesn’t interact with us, and most of the energy is not even matter! It’s still super mind-blowing.

      What causes me the greatest amount of apprehension is what positions in her administration that Beast must have promised both Brazile and Wasserman-Nutcase for their theft and cheating. I’ve already figured she promised McLame Secretary of Defense if he’d play a roll in getting that Dirty Dossier to the authorities so that the grime wouldn’t be on her fingers.

      you know, you so often help me articulate stuff that’s been niggling my brain and I just can’t QUITE get to it.

      I first found out about McCain passing the dossier to the FBI via a Daily Mail story. It said McCain was in the UK having dinner with a Brit who was a former ambassador and heard about the dossier from him. When he got home he sent an unnamed aide to the UK to get a copy.

      Now we find out Hillary had it the entire time. I was seeing 2 separate threads and there’s only one. He got it from Hillary. Jeezus.

      Thanks for retweeting that xmas card thing, btw.

      I am going to have the Offspring put it out on his Facebook page. I’ve closed my FB page so I can only retweet. I’ve retweeted out that if someone can bring this to President Trump’s attention, I’m sure he would make sure this brave little angel received personal greetings from the First Family. And I bet Barron would tell “Dad” to send a present!

      Donna Brazille is just another lying piece of excrement like all the rest. How many times must the point be made? Seriously!
      Yup, the same woman that while working for CNN fed Hillary a CNN debate question , and then lied about it
      is now having an attack of ethics?
      It seems apparent that it is a hit job on Hillary because Hillary is now toxic to the Party, and she is shilling a book.
      Not to say that it is not true, but just the motivation.

      did anybody know she had a book in the works? Buller? Mueller? cuz we know Comey has a book deal, Krapernick has a book deal, but nobody knew squat about Brazille’s?

      so I’m pretty clear on the motive and the message – but the timing is REALLY convenient.

      @ Deplorable Macker:

      heh

      you know, there is just too much to keep track of. Remember the Panama Papers? yeah….

      This unprecedented trove of documents purloined from a shady Panama law firm that arranged tax havens, and perhaps money laundering, for the globe’s super-rich includes juicy insights into how Russia’s elite hides its ill-gotten wealth.
      []
      Almost lost among the many revelations is the fact that Russia’s biggest bank uses The Podesta Group as its lobbyist in Washington, D.C. Though hardly a household name, this firm is well known inside the Beltway, not least because its CEO is Tony Podesta, one of the best-connected Democratic machers in the country. He founded the firm in 1998 with his brother John, formerly chief of staff to President Bill Clinton, then counselor to President Barack Obama, Mr. Podesta is the very definition of a Democratic insider. Outsiders engage the Podestas and their well-connected lobbying firm to improve their image and get access to Democratic bigwigs.

      Which is exactly what Sberbank, Russia’s biggest financial institution, did this spring. As reported at the end of March, the Podesta Group registered with the U.S. Government as a lobbyist for Sberbank, as required by law, naming three Podesta Group staffers: Tony Podesta plus Stephen Rademaker and David Adams, the last two former assistant secretaries of state. It should be noted that Tony Podesta is a big-money bundler for the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign while his brother John is the chairman of that campaign, the chief architect of her plans to take the White House this November.

      Sberbank (Savings Bank in Russian) engaged the Podesta Group to help its public image—leading Moscow financial institutions not exactly being known for their propriety and wholesomeness—and specifically to help lift some of the pain of sanctions placed on Russia in the aftermath of the Kremlin’s aggression against Ukraine, which has caused real pain to the country’s hard-hit financial sector.

      Have a look at this!

      https://youtu.be/QVaQYhd_Qy0

      Visual approach in unchallenging conditions that was so mishandled it resulted in a hull loss and fatalities. This is why people need to be selective about who they are willing to fly with. Three pilots including a check captain allowed this to escalate into an accident. 

      In the first instance they needed to get rid of the automation, and fly the thing. Forget mode changes, turn it off and put out your eyes outside. Then the thing needed a fist full of power. Finally give it away, they’ve cooked it, swallow the pride and go around. Three strikes. 

      Automation dependency at it’s best, and mixed with the super steep cockpit gradients and the Asian ‘cultural trait’ of saving face – a deadly mix for aviation!

      AND they had a check and training captain looking over their shoulders. Almost ALL accidents seem to involve either instructors and/or Check and Training captains.

      in t/he 90’s i was logging a lot of hours in a cessna 182, i was flying it privately ferrying my friend’s dad’s employees around the east coast. he had developed type 2 diabetes and was more than happy for me to do the flights. he paid for gas and maintenance and hotel rooms as needed. its was a good gig, i go to go to ottawa a lot and would bring back some cuban contraband…custgoms never bothered to meet me at 3am at BVI. pre-911 was good stuff.

      anyway, he let me fly it out to Murtha international in johnstown PA so i could have lunch at the airport with my grandad. i was IFR rated so getting over the mountains in the fog was no problem. on the return it was clear on this side of the alleghenies. i requested a straight in approach to the western facing runway and was cleared to proceed.

      a few miles out i requested wind speeds and direction the replied with light and variable from the west. ok, sez i no problem, i got ready or approach in vfr conditions but still had the ifr approach gear on just for fun.

      i started to drift to the south at a pretty good rate and put in corrections. i asked again for wind and got the same answer, the closer i got the more i was drifting…i got onto final and was in full correction and then i saw it.

      our 35 knot windsock was fully inflated and pointing south!

      i called go around and asked he tower again for wind info…same response. at that point i said:

      bvi tower, look out your window and tell me what the wind sock is doing.

      silence….

      their anemometer had failed. they were reading off of the screen and not looking outside.

      a 35 knot cross wind is outside the envelope for that airplane. their weather station had been putting out bogus info for 20 minutes.

      @ coldwarrior:

      so i landed at another nearby airport that had a north facing runway, got a cup of coffee, had a cigar, and waited…

      in an hour or two the wind had died down enough to go and land at BVI (home base).

      i put the airplane back in the hanger and the owner was furious, his office was on the flight line and he heard the entire exchange. he congratulated me on my wisdom not to land and to not flip out over the radio at the tower.

      he did go up and chew some asses, this airport is big for training controllers and pilots, the local college is world famous for it.

      this episode is still taught to new pilots and controllers at the college. the lesson is, LOOK OUT THE WINDOW!
