“Big Bang” Is For Losers

Exactly what is the Universe expanding into? Since the Universe is the whole magilla, what could be left for it to expand into? It is here that the eggshell universe conception comes in handy: the Universe here would be expanding into whatever lies beyond the eggshell.

Thus wrote Ersjdamoo on December 29, 2013. And now comes news that a mysterious “structure” could be beyond the edge of the observable Universe and is pulling matter from our cosmos towards it. [1]

Express (UK) reports that the Universe is constantly expanding, but experts are unsure as to what it is expanding into. [1]

This “Big Bang” theory is extremely silly. Allowance however is made for the tendency of scientists to exchange “whoppers” (tall tales) amongst themselves at the Humbug Tavern. Nonetheless, one of their very number, Gustav Kirchhoff, did not like all the yarns being told and insisted that “Concern with first causes or final reasons was to be excluded from the scientific endeavor as fruitless, or hopeless (if not meaningless).” [2]

“Big Bang” is for losers.

Still, we need the “losers” in order for there to be “winners.” Without the “losers” there would be no yardstick to measure the “winners” by. So if you are one of these Big Bang Losers, take comfort: without you, there could be no winners.

The “Big Bang” came from nothing, say the BBLs (Big Bang Losers). Yet “[t]here’s a little secret,” says one speaker in the video hopefully viewable at the top of today’s blog entry. “The ‘Big Bang’ leaves out something pretty important: the Bang. It tells us how the Universe evolved after the Bang but gives us no insight into what would have powered the Bang itself.” [3]

The Universe breathes. At the Pralaya (repose) the Almighty breathes in and the Universe expands. At the Manvantara, the Almighty breathes out and the Universe contracts. [4]

Young grasshopper, heed the wise words of Hermes Trismegistus:

For there is a starless place beyond heaven remote from all bodily objects. The one who dispenses, whom we call Jupiter, occupies the place between heaven and earth. [5]

A starless place remote… the place between heaven and earth… A mysterious “structure” beyond the edge of the observable Universe pulling matter from our cosmos towards it.

Smouldering Embers of Mexican-American War

In 1845 Mexico had “racial mixtures”: 1,000,000 whites; 4,000,000 Indians; 2,000,000 of mixed white and Indian (mestizos). [1]

Later, during the American Civil War, France took advantage of the distraction and landed in Mexico. So there is some French added to the “racial mixtures” of Mexico.

What we see here in the U.S. seems to be the Indian portion of Mexico’s “racial mixtures”. They are the ones who can earn here five times more than what they could earn in Mexico.

The smouldering embers of the Mexican-American War (1846 – 1848) were sparked anew by a border incident in El Paso, Texas on August 3, 2019. Eight Mexican citizens died due to what I currently believe to have been a crew of shooters at the Wall-Mart there. It was “the deadliest attack on Hispanics in modern U.S. history — and a crime that struck two countries.” [2]

What jurisdiction does Mexico have in the border incident? In the 1958 film noir classic, Touch Of Evil, a compromise is reached after a border incident: Miguel “Mike” Vargas (Charlton Heston), a Mexican drug enforcement agent, works with game-legged American police captain Hank Quinlan (Orson Welles) to solve the case. Mexico expects to participate in the investigation of the suspect in the August 2019 El Paso Incident, Patrick Crusius (pronounced either CREWS-I-us or CREW-shush). Mexico is considering possible extradition of the suspect to Mexico, similar to how Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman Loera was extradited to the United States in 2017. Probably a compromise will be reached between the U.S. and Mexico, with Mexico to some extent involved in the investigation. [2]

Meanwhile, around $5.6 million in charitable donations is in the process of being distributed to victims of the El Paso Massacre. [3]

The ongoing investigation is not leaky at the moment, although early on an unknown person leaked a single frame of surveillance video, showing what appears to be Patrick Crusius entering the Wall-Mart, rifle in hand. The “news” told us the photo had “emerged.” However when you compare the surveillance photo with a photo of Crusius in custody, they appear to be two different persons!

You know Mexico: always there is a revolution going on. From the batch of revolutionists, the remarkable Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna is one who stands out. His accession to power in 1834 meant the overthrow of Mexico’s federalist system. That overthrow inflamed the “states’ rights” people who objected to centralized government from Mexico City. Especially did Texas dislike the Santa Anna centralized government. A low type of soldier began to be stationed in Texas to enforce collection of new “import duties” (tariffs). Another problem was that Mexico had abolished slavery in 1829 but many Texans were from the American south and had brought slaves with them. [4] (Mexico favored a system of peonage by which the Indians and mestizos were held in perpetual bondage. Perpetual bondage (peonage) now takes the form of unpayable student loan debt which cannot be erased with bankruptcy.)

¡Ay, Caramba! TWO Of Crusius!?

A still photo of suspected lone-nut WALL-Mart shooter Patrick Crusius “emerged” from surveillance video. That’s what the “news” told us: the photo had “emerged.” Comparing that photo with another of Crusius, apparently in custody after the El Paso shootings of August 3, 2019, raises suspicions there are TWO Patrick Crusiuses.

You can try your own image comparisons by going first to Google, then selecting Google Images. Enter the search term “Patrick Crusius” and be prepared to say, “¡Ay, caramba!” (Holy sh*t!)

Not being a wizard on WordPress technical matters, I’m not sure how this will turn out. But here below are at least two links to Crusius images (if not the actual images):

https://images.app.goo.gl/ppcigjoxkCt6SbMv8

https://images.app.goo.gl/udEMya9SaQVWT16T9

These two photos look like two different people!

There were two “Lee Harvey Oswalds”, one called Alek Hidell. One of the TWO Oswalds had his face “emerge” from CIA surveillance of the Soviet embassy in Mexico City. The Mexico City Oswald looks nothing like Lee Harvey Oswald.

So which Patrick Crusius is now in custody, is the question to be asked. And how is the name Patrick Crusius pronounced? Is it pronounced CREWS-I-us, or CREW-shush? Adriana Quezada, eyewitness to the August 3, 2019 El Paso Wall-Mart carnage, says there was a CREW of shooters, four men, dressed in black, moving together firing guns indiscriminately. [1] The El Paso Police Department tweeted during the height of the chaos on August 3rd, “We have multi reports of multiple shooters.” [2] Is the name Crusius pronounced CREWS-I-us (the shooting crew plus I/Us, Patrick Crusius and his double)? Or is it pronounced CREW-shush (as in there was a crew of shooters, but Shush up about it)?

Waiting For ¡Ay, Caramba!

There is no literal translation for ¡Ay, Caramba!. I find it to be equivalent to “Holy Sh*t!” No ¡Ay, Caramba! event is found in the “news” today, just mostly recycled hash.

Oh for the days of ¡Ay, Caramba! Like the early-June La Junta Elf, for instance. (I later found that Native American tribes had stories about the “Little People.” But that discovery came after a new ¡Ay, Caramba! event, the early-August El Paso Incident.)

The El Paso Incident of August 3, 2019 has stirred the still-smouldering embers of the Mexican-American War (1846 – 1848). In 1919, Professor Justin H. Smith of Dartmouth was calling it “The Forgotten War.” This was before the Korean War came along in 1950 and it appropriated the title of forgotten war. Before the Mexican-American War arrived, the previous military conflict was just called “The War.” But then, when our battle with Mexico began, it was realized we could no longer just call it “The War”. So people put their heads together and decided to call it “The War of 1812” in order to make it easier for future history students to remember the year.

So the El Paso Incident has sparked the always-smouldering embers of the Mexican-American War. In those bygone days, the “xenophobia” see-sawed. In April 1830 a decree by Mexico forbade entrance into Texas from the north without a Mexican passport. In 1833 the prohibition against the entry of Americans into Texas was repealed. [1]

“The Mexican government never wearied of declaring that multitudes of Americans crossed the frontier [into Texas] in open defiance of laws expressly enacted to keep them out.” There is still much argument: some say it was phony land speculators who precipitated “illegal immigration.” Unscrupulous Yankees had sold land deeds to gullible yokels. They hurried to Texas to occupy “their” land then found out their deeds were worthless. Naturally, if Texas declared independence from Mexico then their deeds would have more value. Others say this “land speculation” argument is invalid, that Mexico itself was eager for colonists, preferably Catholic. Mexico’s anti-immigration laws were a joke, not seriously enforced for years. And so the American immigrants still came. [1]

Alleged lone-nut shooter in El Paso, Patrick Crusius, is the John Brown of the moment (though some might argue with this). John Brown was an American abolitionist who advocated the use of armed insurrection to overthrow the institution of slavery in the United States. Brown was dissatisfied with the pacifism of the organized abolitionist movement: “These men are all talk. What we need is action—action!” he cried. In May 1856, Brown and his supporters killed five supporters of slavery in the Pottawatomie massacre. [2] On August 3, 2019, Patrick Crusius allegedly killed twenty-two persons in the Wall-Mart massacre. (I do not approve of the tactics of either incident.)

Crusius is now on “suicide watch” at the El Paso county jail. [3] Jeffrey Epstein was also on “suicide watch” before his alleged suicide. If Crusius “commits suicide” this will simplify a complex situation for some people.

AND: Is it just me, or does the mug shot of Patrick Crusius look different from other photos, such as the photo which “emerged” from Wall-Mart surveillance cameras?

¡Ay, Caramba! Mexico Otra Vez!

As nearly as I can figure out, ¡Ay, Caramba! means “Holy Sh*t!” Bart Simpson sometimes uses the expression. War is how Americans learn geography, someone said. The El Paso Incident of August 3, 2019 causes Ersjdamoo to notice El Paso, Texas and re-awakens interest in Mexican history.

¡Ay, Caramba! On Saturday, at Ciudad Juárez, across the river from El Paso, 50 migrants tried to cross into the United States using el puente internacional Santa Fe o Paso del Norte (the bridge). However the Policía Federal de México were alert to the situation. Assisted by the policía municipal de Juárez, the potential lawbreakers were stopped. [1]

The embers are yet still smouldering from the Mexican-American War of 1846-1848. Occasionally sparks cause the passions of that war to re-ignite. The August 3rd El Paso Incident brings in jurisdictional matters, similar to those found in the 1958 film noir classic, Touch of Evil. Mexico says that, because several of their citizens were killed in the shootings, suspect Patrick Crusius must be extradited to that nation.

El Paso is being given the “soft soap” treatment for now instead of hard facts. Countless heart-tugging stories appear. One fact did “emerge” (“emerge” is used advisedly): A still-shot photo “emerged” from Wall-Mart surveillance video showing suspect Patrick Crusius entering the store. Not “emerging” yet are photos of three or four men dressed in black said by eyewitness Adriana Quezada to have been firing guns indiscriminately. [2]

While we wait for any hard facts to further “emerge”, let us look into the smouldering embers. In 1810, Mexico revolted against Spain. By September 1821, Agustín de Iturbide entered the capital in triumph. Eight months later Iturbide was proclaimed emperor of Mexico. But then the military officer Antonio López de Santa Anna revolted against emperor Iturbide. Iturbide was dethroned and a republican system of government established. “In October, 1824, a federal constitution, based in a considerable measure upon that of the United States, was proclaimed.” Guadalupe Victoria (original name Manuel Félix Fernández) became the first President of Mexico. [3]

In 1829 a Spanish expeditionary force landed in Mexico to subdue the rebels and bring them back into the Spanish empire. Because of incompetence and possibly treachery the expeditionary force had to surrender. From this, Santa Anna became a national hero. This went to his head and he became almost a dictator. A centralized rather than republican form of government ensued in 1835. [3]

On April 28, 1836 Spain acknowledged Mexican independence. In 1837 Santa Anna was defeated and captured by the Texans. [3]

The El Paso Incident

Nos han dado la tierra (They have given us the land) wrote Mexican author Juan Rulfo (1917 – 1986). Rulfo wrote some wild stories, most notably Pedro Páramo. “It is our land!” cry the Mexicans, who claim the American Southwest was stolen from them via the War With Mexico of 1846 – 1848.

Justin H. Smith extensively researched “The Forgotten War”, the War With Mexico. His book on the subject was published in 1919. At the time of Smith’s research, some elderly veterans of the war were still alive and Smith was able to interview them. Wrote Smith, Professor of Modern History at Dartmouth, “As a particular consequence of this full inquiry, an episode that has been regarded both in the United States and abroad as discreditable to us, appears now to wear quite a different complexion.” [1]

In 1920, Professor Smith received the Pulitzer Prize for his book, The War With Mexico. [2]

A watershed moment in the still-smouldering fires of the War with Mexico was the El Paso Wall-Mart shootings of August 3, 2019. ABC News had reported on a tweet issued by the El Paso Police Department. They gave the time for the tweet as 12:11 pm. [3] I have double-checked at the El Paso PD twitter feed and the time given there is 1:11 pm. The tweet reads as follows:

Scene is still Active. We have multi reports of multiple shooters. Please avoid area police conducting search of a very large area. Media staging will be given when area is secure. [4]

One of several replies to the tweet is given by “Leigh Nofp” (pseudonym): “Numerous shooters!” [4]

They have given us the land. WHO gave them the land? Hernán Cortés led an expedition that caused the fall of the Aztec Empire and brought large portions of what is now mainland Mexico under the rule of the King of Castile in the early 16th century. [5] So really the land belongs to the Aztecs, no?

Francisco Vázquez de Coronado led a large expedition from Mexico to present-day Kansas through parts of the southwestern United States between 1540 and 1542. Vázquez de Coronado had hoped to reach the Cities of Cíbola, the Seven Cities of Gold, in the American Southwest. Coronado conquered the Zuni people. It can be called the Spanish “Conquest of Cíbola”. [6] So really the land had belonged to the Zuni people.

Or did it? Reportedly, two stories appeared in The Billings Gazette on August 24, 1977. The reports dealt with the question of the Little People of the trans-Mississippi West. The Indian tribes were well aware of these Little People. “Do ‘Little People’ skulk among us?” by John A. Bonar, and “It scared the wits out of me”, by Dorothy M. Johnson, were the titles for the 1977 newspaper reports. [7]

Mummified remains had been found in Wyoming. The Indians spoke of knee-high demons. Gold prospectors in the Pedro Mountains had found, in October 1932, a mummy revealed to be a 65-year-old man. [7]

When did these Pygmies inhabit the trans-Mississippi West? Maybe as early as 10,000 years ago. The Lakota tribe have a story on the matter:

A wandering group of 350 Lakota (mainstream of the Sioux) trespassed into Pygmy territory. The elfin-like creatures were (are?) fearless night fighters. They always attack after dark. Many of the 350 Lakota were killed. The others, nearly all of them, were wounded but survived. [7]

An Arapaho legend says the Great Spirit cautioned the Arapaho to beware of the tiny demons. These wee folk or little people lived in caves or huts. The Pygmy tribe were sometimes called the Little People of the Pryor Mountains, but their bones have been found further afield, as far north as Yellowstone and in caves near the Colorado line. [7]

So really the land belongs to the Little People. Or maybe not. But don’t get me started on the subject of the giants.

Secret Manifesto Obtained

Has anyone actually read the El Paso manifesto? asked Byron York of The Washington Examiner. [1]

How could we have read it? It is under strict embargo. But then York offered an El Paso (a pass) through the blockade: the El Paso manifesto, wrote York, “can be easily found on the internet.” [1]

Not “easily found” but found has been the manifesto allegedly written by suspected lone nut shooter Patrick Crusius. The idea for the embargo is to discourage aspiring authors from using violence as a marketing strategy. So no link shall be given here.

However a problem with the manifesto embargo is that we are left with newsfaker interpretations to rely upon. They tell us Crusius is a rabid right-winger. Some people blame the “rhetoric” of Donald Trump for fomenting Crusius into senseless violence. According to York, The New York Times declared that even “if Mr. Trump did not originally inspire the gunman, he has brought into the mainstream polarizing ideas and people once consigned to the fringes of American society.” [1]

But you might as well blame Al Gore for the August 3, 2019 Wall-Mart massacre. The manifesto (which the unknown author him/her-self calls a manifesto) references in its very title Gore’s movie, An Inconvenient Truth. The manifesto author warns, “our lifestyle Is destroying the environment of our country… Water sheds around the country, especially in agricultural areas, are being depleted. Fresh water Is being polluted from farming and oil drilling operations. Consumer culture is creating thousands of tons of unnecessary plastic waste and electronic waste…” [2]

The unknown author of the self-described manifesto rails against corporations, more of a leftist cause célèbre than a Trumpist theme. [2]

It is true that the unknown author is fixated on what he or she calls “Invaders”, meaning Hispanic immigrants. But his/her politics are not strictly “right” or “left.” [2]

One other peculiarity worth mentioning in connection with the alleged politics of the Wall-Mart shooter: MyLife is an American information brokerage founded in 2002. According to Gateway Pundit, at 2:46 pm on August 3, 2019, MyLife had its profile for Patrick Crusius changed. The original profile had Crusius as a registered Democrat. [3] So, if Gateway Pundit is correct, a few hours after the El Paso shootings an unknown hand tinkered with the facts.
