Police who traced a video camera discovered in a men’s bathroom to its owner discovered he was one of their own… and he was inviting “straight” men to his home to receive oral sex from the other side of the barrier. The “straight” men apparently had “no idea” that there was a man on the other side of the glory hole. Really?

CHESTERFIELD, Mo. (KSDK) – Chesterfield police have arrested one of their own for recording video in a men’s restroom.

Chesterfield Police Officer David Cerna, 33, faces a felony charge of invasion of privacy, according to Chesterfield Police Chief Ray Johnson. Cerna set up a camera in a vent in a Mobil on the Run location, where it recorded men using the facilities, Johnson said during a press conference.

A media investigation tipped off the department that someone had been recording a men’s restroom, Johnson said.

White Supremacists and Climate Change Denial

Peter Sinclair writes at Climate Denial Crock of the Week:

I’ve pointed out before the comfy co-existence of racism and climate change denial on display at the recent CPAC convention, and been criticized for making so obvious a connection. Well, here it is again.

If you pick up the video above at about 2:48, you’ll see a recap of this week’s kerfuffle about a senior analyst at the “conservative” Heritage Foundation, and his, well, uh, frank, views on white supremacy.

Heritage, one of DC’s leading sewerpipes of climate denial, claims they had no idea one of their guys was a cross-burner – but watch the video and you’ll see him – at a public meeting covered by CSpan – spew a nauseating race-vs-IQ spiel that would be worthy of, well, the Wall Street Journal.

But even the Journal cut that shit out 20 years ago.

Maybe there should be research into the DNA and brain structure of climate deniers and racists, to find out if both behaviors spring from the same genetic deficiency.

The Psychology of Mass Denial: 9/11 Truth and Cognitive Dissonance

"Explosive Evidence: Experts Speak Out" by the Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth. Join 23-year architect Richard Gage, AIA, in this feature length documentary with cutting-edge 9/11 evidence from more than 50 top experts in their fields — high-rise architects, structural engineers, physicists, chemical engineers, firefighters, metallurgists, explosives experts, controlled demolition technicians, and more. Each is highly qualified in his/her respective fields. Several have Ph.D’s — including National Medal of Science awardee Lynn Margulis. She, along with the other experts, exposes the fraud of NIST and discusses how the scientific method should have been applied and acknowledges the “overwhelming” evidence of high temperature incendiaries in all dust samples of the WTC. High-rise architects and structural engineers layout the evidence in the features of the destruction of these three high-rises that point inevitably to explosive controlled demolition.

A World In Denial

Donald Rumsfeld

Donald Rumsfeld

Geoffrey Wheatcroft writes in the New York Times:

Could there be a single phrase that explains the woes of our time, this dismal age of political miscalculations and deceptions, of reckless and disastrous wars, of financial boom and bust and downright criminality? Maybe there is, and we owe it to Fintan O’Toole. That trenchant Irish commentator is a biographer and theater critic, and a critic also of his country’s crimes and follies, as in his gripping if horrifying book, Ship of Fools: How Stupidity and Corruption Sank the Celtic Tiger.

He reminds us of the famous if gnomic saying by Donald H. Rumsfeld, then the United States secretary of defense, that “There are known knowns… there are known unknowns … there are also unknown unknowns.” But the Irish problem, says Mr. O’Toole, was none of the above. It was “unknown knowns.”

What he means is something different from denial, or evasion, irrational exuberance or excess optimism.
