Don’t Get Stupid Kid

This is why I stopped reading places like Gateway Pundit and Townhall.


New York Post: FBI Agents Tell Us Lynch and Clinton Struck a Deal on That Plane (bold me V)

From the NY Post article they link:

“FBI agents believe there was an inside deal put in place after the Loretta Lynch/Bill Clinton tarmac meeting,” said one source.(bold me V)

An accurate headline would read, “FBI agents tell Post they believe a deal was struck.”

But that wouldn’t bring the clicks. Most people would just say “Well duh” and click on an Upton gif.

I saw that article and was going to write about the fact that the Feds had to sign a non-disclosure statement

Sources said they had never heard of the “Case Briefing Acknowledgment” form being used before, although all agents must initially sign nondisclosure agreements to obtain security clearance.

“This is very, very unusual. I’ve never signed one, never circulated one to others,” said one retired FBI chief.

An FBI agent currently on the job admitted, “I have never heard of such a form. Sounds strange.”

Now that’s news. Invoking omerta is what you expect of Chicago machine thugs but still newsworthy as it’s, you know, true.

Making shit up is just lame.

They do that shit all the time and I got sick of being half-way through writing a post when I realized the linked article or the body of their article didn’t support the headline.

I just don’t like the dishonest click-bait Townhall and their ilk put out, it can make me look stupid if I trust them and it muddies the water on a good story (like here), but they get a shitload of clicks and that’s what matters.

Here at DPUD we have a different business model. We try to reduce readership and don’t sell advertising that slows your computer down to a crawl.

Old School!

On the plus side, it’s reduced how many sites I feel I should visit and lets me find new ones without spending all my time on the tubes.


Death Wish III was on yesterday. As soon as it was over, and I cleaned myself and my Wildey off, I started realizing that with DeBlasio in charge, someone in NYC might need a Wildey.

So I checked the site and what did I see?

Wildey’s Back!

The site was last updated 3/2016 and says, “Wildey’s Back!” instead of the old standby from Death Wish III, “Wildey’s Here!”. Previously, it was last updated 5/2009.

It’s now called  USA Firearms Corp-Wildey Guns instead of just Wildey guns.

They don’t have any pricing so it might be wishful thinking, but I have high hopes.

Hopefully, I’m not just high.

Just in case….

Ha ha ha howue b~aa ha wee!

Never I cried, never shall it ye get me alive

    Yep. One of the revealing things about the ’08 election and subsequent Obama administration was just how many blogs and news outlets of the Rightosphere were untrustworthy and unreliable. I only tend to remember the more spectacular ones, though, like Peggy Noonan hating on Palin or NRO canning Derbyshire and lamely attempting to rebuke Mark Steyn. Shoulda known better than to tug on Superman’s cape, kid. Anyway, point is, big media had already arrived in force and was bound to drive the information content and value of the blogosphere down. Shame, that, but that’s the information revolution for ya.:/
