I'm surprised, jeffmoskin, although perhaps down in NYC, it wasn't considered a scandal, at all, tolerance for government corruption down there being a lot greater than up here, just as today, in Joe Biden's version of America, it wouldn't be a scandal, at all ...

More a case of "that is the way it is done" ...

1958!

I think you were still in HS ...

Sherman Adams!

And the famous VICUNA COAT SCANDAL that tainted the administration of Dwight Eisenhauer with the stench of corruption ...

Until old Sherman got tossed overboard, and went under the bus ...

While today, he would have gotten a pay raise and a government building named after him ...

Remember, only half of the country had a TV set back then. Scandals were much harder to generate on radio or newspapers.

We were talking about it in class at my school, and what I remember up here from the adults was indignation and outrage ...

The term vicuna coat was thus embedded in my memory forever as a symbol of government corruption ...

Now, the main-stream and legacy media would treat it as a total non-event ...

Nothing to see here, folks!

Doubt it. The main scream media today picks up on any red meat that will attract eyeballs. They are all about ratings which = money. Maybe they always were and I didn't notice it then

They seem to miss a lot of red meat is my thought when DEMOCRATS are involved ...

Big surprise there, of course, as the main-stream and legacy media are Democrat enablers and apologists who provide political cover for the Democrats and Democrat corruption and have been so doing for a long time now, so that is all old news going back to the corrupt administration of Harry S. Truman and his Attorney General Howard McGrath, a longtime Truman ally who was Chairman of the Democratic National Committee before being awarded the political plum of attorney general for Truman, from which post, like "ARF ARF" today, Joe's pet poodle Merrick "THE GUTLESS" Garland, McGrath was able to protect Democrat corruption ...

Recalling the subsequent VICUNA COAT SCANDAL that forced REPUBLICAN Sherman Adams from office, Truman Finance official Merl Young accepted a mink coat for his wife from a powerful Washington attorney, and not a word was said, which, of course, is the famous double standard that persists to this day ...

Thankfully for the nation, Truman's corruption effectively forced him from office ...

When Truman said "the buck stops here," he was talking about where graft ended up, which was his pocket ...

The New York Post

"Loud fart sound erupts during John Kerry’s speech at climate panel"

Story by Joe Tacopino

5 DECEMBER 2023

John Kerry might need to cut back on his own emissions.

The Biden Administration’s climate envoy was discussing US policy on coal power plants at the Climate Change Conference in Dubai on Sunday when Kerry may have unleashed a burst of wind energy.

The former secretary of state was speaking next to Becky Anderson, Managing Editor of CNN Abu Dhabi, and Fatih Birol, Executive director of the International Energy Agency, when a Bronx cheer suddenly erupted midsentence.

“There shouldn’t be any more coal-fired power plants permitted anywhere in the world,” Kerry began before launching into an anti-coal diatribe.

“I find myself getting more and more militant because I do not understand how adults who are in a position of responsibility can be avoiding responsibility for taking away those things that are killing people on a daily basis…”

Before Kerry can complete his thought, the crude sound of passing gas can be heard over the microphone.

The crowd breaks into applause, apparently oblivious to the crude theatrics.

CNN’s Anderson — sitting to Kerry’s right and within striking distance of a potential bodily function — quickly jerks her head aside and inconspicuously places her hand to her mouth, possibly in the event of any stench permeating the climate panel.

And coming back to our times today, you have to admit that the New York Post also has a way with words while capturing what can only be called the "spirit of the moment" which is what a good newspaper should be doing for its readers ...

Good morning, jeffmoskin, good to see you and your sense of humor back!

And back here, I've been starting my morning fires with the New York Times ...

And we got snow coming down here ...

Which is a real true sign that GLOBAL WARMING is real if there ever was one ...
