Tinfoil coal-scuttle helmet time

From Wonkette, who has many links and a picture of Gregory Peck in The Boys From Brazil. Heh.

We Hate To Bring Up the Nazis, But They Fled To South America, Too

Our paranoid friends over at Bring It On have put together a story that hasn't exactly made Washington Whispers. It's real short and real simple:

* The Cuban news service reports that George W. Bush has purchased 98,840 acres in Paraguay, near the Bolivian/Brazilian border.

* Jenna Bush paid a secret diplomatic visit to Paraguayan President Nicanor Duarte and U.S. Ambassador James Cason. There were no press conferences, no public sightings and no official confirmation of her 10-day trip which apparently ended this week.

* The Paraguayan Senate voted last summer to "grant U.S. troops immunity from national and International Criminal Court (ICC) jurisdiction."

* Immediately afterwards, 500 heavily armed U.S. troops arrived with various planes, choppers and land vehicles at Mariscal Estigarribia air base, which happens to be at the northern tip of Paraguay near the Bolivian/Brazilian border. More have reportedly arrived since then.

What the hell, after the jump. Plus a BREAKING UPDATE involving, of course, The Moonies!

Here's a fun question for Tony Snow: Why might the president and his family need a 98,840-acre ranch in Paraguay protected by a semi-secret U.S. military base manned by American troops who have been exempted from war-crimes prosecution by the Paraguyan government?

Could they be seeing an all-expense-paid one-way trip to The Hague in the handwriting on the wall? Hmmmm...

Go read the rest. It's fun.

And from Telugu Portal:

Jenna Bush, daughter of US President George W. Bush, is recently into a lot of humanitarian work.

According to, Jenna, who has been seen less at social gatherings and parties, was recently in Paraguay on a 10-day UNICEF trip as a volunteer. Currently, she is in Panama doing her internship with the organisation.

Lemme see, UNICEF has to do with children, doesn't it? Could her sudden interest be in gaining access to youthful, if reluctant, organ donors...? 41 is over 80, after all...

Mrs. G tells me that the other bimbo twin, Not Jenna, is studying medicine. Could her interest possibly lie in the organ transplant or identity-obscuring plastic surgery fields? Hmmmm....

Must go now. Thunderstorm approaching...must remove hat...
