Washington Post’s Waco Account

The best place to hide a leaf is in a forest. The best place to hide the truth about what happened six days ago in the parking lot of the Twin Peaks restaurant in Waco is in the river of non sequitars and lies a Minnie Pearl clone named W. Patrick Swanton has been spitting at the press all week.

Swanton is the press officer for the Waco Police Department. On the one hand he promises “transparency.” On the other hand he modestly allows that he is unfazed by the personal danger that a vast and underreported biker threat poses to Texas police, politicians and citizens. Swanton has been the sole, quotable source of information about what happened last week so reporters have had no choice but to quote him. It is either quote Swanton or leave all that blank, white space around the furniture store ads.

Swanton’s refusal to answer the questions people want answered has led to increasingly bizarre speculation. Today’s chuckle of the day, if one can chuckle about this tragedy, is, “A new Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) report circulating in the Kremlin today states that the Obama regime’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) deliberately massacred at least 9 innocent motorcycle enthusiasts on 17 May over fears that one of the clubs participating in a yearly rally in Waco, Texas, could possibly be linked to the Night Wolves.”


  1. Somewhat off topic, but not really.
    Texas again sets the standard for violating the Constitution: Curfew beginning tonight at 9 pm and ending at 7 am for San Marcos, Wimberley and Unincorporated Hays County in Texas because of weather – @CityofSanMarcos (
    Anything and everything is now shameless used
    to justify the American police state.
    Go, go, go Patriots!
    Keep gathering piles of cat shit with a knitting needle.

    1. Weather? Never heard of that before. They don't do that here when a hurricane comes through.
