Pig wrestling for fun and little profit: Rumor has it ATF is recruiting an ex-agent to circulate "counter-propaganda" on the Internet.

"Are you having fun yet, Little Jimmy?"

To folks and Feds --

It seems that somebody in DC doesn't like the Sipsey Street Irregulars blog, nor do they like some of our friends who are making their legal lives difficult. The story I was told tonight on the phone is that shortly we will see some ham-handed "psy ops" pointed at me and my friends in the blogosphere. Of course, it is just a rumor. But then, ya know, the rumors I've been hearing lately about the senior executive service mandarins-of-incompetence at ATF have been pretty much dead on.

Likely this will be a clumsy attempt to imitate the People's Republic of China's censorship efforts.

I would suggest that if the Chief Counsel's Office reading of the Supreme Court case of Sullivan vs. New York Times is up to their usual legal standards, me, my good friend in Georgia and CPT R.A. Bear are going to have a lot more fun soon -- First on the Net, then in court. For the people they are about to libel and slander are not "public personages."

I've got four questions for you, James P. Vann, et al, and two observations.

Question One: Have your Main Justice superiors signed off on this latest stupidity, or is this another rogue operation fixing to blow up in your face, with blowback spattering all over Eric Holder again? Remember, NOTHING on the Internet is private, and like tracers, that works both ways.

Observation One: You have got to be some kind of masochistic SOBs to risk more discovery trauma like the mess you are just coming off of.

Question Two: What is your legal justification for soliciting an Internet disinformation campaign, and is this really something you think you can later explain to Congress or the OPR?

Question Three: Doesn't it bother you that your poll numbers among street agents (and recently sensitized superiors at Main Justice, as well as federal prosecutors in the field) are lower than whale excrement?

Question Four: How will this clandestine campaign play out in front of a judge when it becomes public knowledge that you seem to be attempting to subvert the judicial process IN CURRENT, PENDING CASES, by employing a disinformation specialist to slander the people involved in those cases, with an eye to affecting their outcome?

Observation Two: My grandpa used to say that the problem with wrestling with a hog is that no matter how hard you try, eventually you come to realize that the hog likes it. So, be my guest, if you feel froggy, have your "ghost agent" of disinformation come wrestle with a hog in public. I LIVE for stupidities like that.

Or, maybe, you could just stop setting up people like David Olofson on flimsy excuses and legal malfeasances, start doing things like obeying your own rules and regulations and stop trying to commit economic Wacos on people who refuse to back down to your threats and bluster. That way you wouldn't have to be continually explaining serial incompetencies to your superiors.

Think about it.

The idea might grow on you if you give it half a chance.

Do the right thing, obey the law and the Constitution that you swore an oath before God to preserve, protect and defend, and you might be amazed how smooth your life becomes.

But, if you are determined to wrestle in public with a hog -- Here I am. I assure you I will enjoy it a lot more than you will.

Of course, it could be that our sources in DC are imagining all this, I suppose. But they weren't wrong about last Wednesday's meeting, now were they? And did you ever catch up with CPT R.A. Bear? Naw, didn't think so. Are you beginning to feel like Frank Zappa yet, when he posed the musical question, "What is reality?"

Mike I may have already run across their "counter-propaganda" campaign.
I ran across a liberal site that reported you as a Ku Klux Klan leader. I did not bother to read beyond such an obvious load of Male bovine biologically reduced alfalfa.

Happy D. Send me that link, will you?

Yep! A saying I learned while in the Army (Signal Corps), supporting the infantry. "Arguing with the infantry is like mud-wrestling a pig. You both get dirty, but the pig loves it."

Get 'em dirty, Mike!

As I used to say to my splendid, felon laced, chronically drunken, and morally suspect infantry platoon, " Nothing is too good for my hogs". Nations often labour under the delusion that their fighting men are of the highest standard of decency. Nothing could be further from the truth. We are the scum of the earth. But then again, victory does not come at the hands of the Sunday School Class. The killing is done by rough men, who do not hesitate when it is time to spill blood. It has always been so. Something the BATFECES should keep in mind, since at any given time, there are about 1 million infantry vets, wandering around the US.

Man, you must be one kickass American patriot, bro. Normally, I just come in to skim headlines and leave. You can never tell at first if what you see is what really is.

But looks like you are the real deal. Thanks, ATF fukwads. I wasn't really sure until now.

Can't resist another Zappa line:

"F**k me, you ugly son of a bitch"

line in "Stick it out" on Joes Garage, acts 2&3, 1979.

Ironically, it was addressed to a cyborg that "looked like a cross between an industrial vacuum cleaner and a chrome piggy bank - with marital aids stuck all over its body"

Hey Mike,

Let me be one (if not the first) to offer my services should you wish to sue. You have my contact info.

I really really must be out of the ooda... of course I'm not online a lot recently but I never get to see ANY of them there psyclops or dizzy information things y'all talk about.
Of course, I would have thought that feebies and batf ooze would go after the things that people already KNOW about Mike, like his penchant for eating human flesh, his marvelous collection of VC ears on paracord, or his notorious habit of drunkenly breaking into medleys of show tunes any time that he gets in an elevator.
But then, what do I know? I ain't no fortunate one...

I can't say that I always agree with you, but tonight I will hoist one in your honor.

Afraid I was wrong the post I ran across while I was looking for the Telegraph article that mentioned the Three Percenters was posted in 2006. The Mike Vanderboegh it mentioned could not be our Mike.

It is an interesting look at a Progressive rewrite of history. Or a poor understanding of same.
