Dann Dobson and Michael Cavlan/ National Buffoons Guild



Dann Dobson has something to say about this video at E Democracy. LINK HERE

I think this video speaks for itself for the most part. I edited out the better part of Dobson's incoherent babbling, but you get the picture. If any drugs were in use, I think we know who was using them.

One aspect that it doesn't convey is however, that I had a perfectly legitimate press pass, issued from the RNC. It was issued to me in the name of "True North", which I was reporting for.

http://looktruenorth.com/

I found it highly amusing to listen to these lowlives, who were counting on their rights of freedom of speech and assembly to allow them to trash our convention, attempting to intimidate me (pffft!) and deny my right to stand on a public sidewalk and take pictures of anything I pleased.

I wasn't there to interview them; didn't start any conversations with them; I didn't owe them any answers. As can be seen, they didn't ask any questions until Cavlan had exhausted his finger.

Some may wonder why, as the viewer will notice, the last part of the video is quite dark.

That's because as I was leaving (as one can see, I didn't "retreat" until I was ready to leave), I noticed that Cavlan, Dobson and his "Law Professor" and "Boeing Engineer" companions (grin) were following me, so I led them around the corner to a dark side street to confront them.

I don't like to be followed, but I do like dark streets for confronting punks who follow me.

(Because this video was for public consumption on a respectable blog, I had edited out the footage where I stepped around the corner in front of them unexpectedly... as I recall, Dobson (it might have been one of the others), fell down backwards, it's hilarious!)

The video also does not convey the utter absurdity of the claim that I had anything to do with the police, much less got into a car with them. I can only guess that the cell call Dobson claims he heard was between the voices in his head.

I'll leave it to the reader to decide what they might wish to believe from the likes of Cavlan and Dobson in future.

Cavlan for Senate? Heh...Yeah, sure.

Good luck with that scumbag.

Funny to read these people's comment over at edem and form an opinion about them and then to see them in person and have your feeling vindicated by their actions and words. I'm glad I don't live next door to any of them.

I too think the video speaks for itself. The video shows the true personality of many DFL insiders in Saint Paul. These are the kind of people good DFlers are hood winked into voting for.

Thanks Swiftee, with your video you probably have prevented another pompous ass from getting elected.

While Dan probably votes DFL more than Independent, to say he is representative is far from the truth. When it comes to this RNC business, he is against the Mayor, Choi, Fletcher and Harrington. Involved in lawsuits and everything (much like a group of landlords I know).

Cavlan is a Green Party activist from at least two decades back and runs for office more than Bill Dahn taking more votes from the Left and DFLers than Republicans.

And the cameraman Swiftee. I think that any of you would be uptight about being filmed while hanging out with your landlord friends.
Let's say Bob had a town hall forum for real, and Chuck showed up across the street with a video camera filming who was going in and out of the meeting? Already you're thinking that the city is behind it.

Swiftee was being his usual agitating self and those people bit the bait by giving him something to run with. His head is too thick to try and intimidate and that was just stupid on their part.


There was a comment earlier that said something about jerks all around on this one, including the cameraman, I agree.

I'm sure that Cavlan and Dobson will sleep better tonight knowing that there is as least one out there that doesn't believe they are a couple of dim-witted tools.

Perhaps they will return you the favor in the not too distant future, Eric.

Eric, I think there is a good chance this video may be part of any future litigation. It is clear these guys in the video were either drunk or on drugs. The video also clearly shows these guys were looking for a fight, they were overly aggressive.

Their crediblility would be questionalble in court.

Danny knows this video is damaging and was already throwing out some damage control at SPIF in the form of "kill the messenger" describing Swiftee as a meth head. Common practice with you DFLers to tarnish the reputation of those you oppose. The video speaks for itself. Swiftee wasn't phased by the buffoonery.

Yeah, let us not forget Dobson's claim that he was accompanied by a "law professor" and a "Boeing engineer".

Don't know what pocket he pulled the engineer lie from, but I did some digging on the camera toting "law professor".

He's a leftist nut case that shuffles paperwork out of his house in Washington state.

I don't know if he's had his license to practise pulled, like Dobson, but he sure as hell ain't a "professor".

Not only are these people ignorant, they're liars.

Since I'm not welcome on E-Dem, if anyone would like to post this over there, feel free!

Thanks Swiftee but reading is still fundamental. I did say:

You can continue with your tarnishing of reputations as Bob puts it. Bob-O seems to forget that it was Chuck's court record that was posted here because someone didn't like what he said and he himself was fishing around about me (you're not the only one with friends in the courts houses and county records).

Smell that?

I made a reference to SPIF when in fact it is the "Minnesota Politics and Issues Forum".

Eric, I am thinking the current political climate has your anxiety level up. It will all be over come November, then you can go back on the offensive.

As far as I know Chuck doesn't have a record of any kind.

And you Eric. If you had a record I wouldn't tell anyone here.

Hi All,

Folks please don't post private citizens records here. These folks aren't running for office or holding an office.

Bedsides information like this doesn't serve the forum well, It chases away viable posters.

Swiftee, they are not my new BFF's. As a matter of fact, I have worked against Cavlan when I was bored. I enjoy twisting the non-logic of the Green Party as much as you enjoy being a jerk. I was simply pointing out that absolutely no one likes some creepy guy with a camera watching them. The mistake is, they reacted to it.

That being said, I'm not sure what's the big deal here. They were doing anything illegal. Loitering? So was the cameraman.

Did Thune cause some of the mishaps that accured in 2008, he had his ugly face as a protester.
He should never call others what he refered those people that were protesting at the Smith Av. Hall.
Thune always calls the kettle black and that time he was caught as a anarechist, a person who rebels against any authority.

Good point.

These are the scumbags that Bucky Thune ran out to protect!

These are the scumbags Bucky claimed were just peaceful, concerned citizens.

These are the scumbags Bucky claimed were attacked without provacation.

Maybe Cavlan and Dobson promised to come over and clean the garbage out of Bucky's yard if he'd be their protector.

Eric, or Chuck; can you tell us why Dave "Bucky" Thune stood with the violent thugs against the police that were trying to protect the residents of St. Paul?

Did people get chemicals tossed in their faces, sand bags dropped on them...did windows get smashed because of Thune?

I think so.

Anonymous Anonymous said...

Swifty,

Believe it or not people still have the right to peacefully protest.

People also should be arrested when they violate the law.

All Thune ever said is that Fletcher didn't have the power to close down a rental hall business that had legally rented the building for the purposes of having a meeting. There still is a constitution in this country Swiftee and people are allowed to assemble.

As for where I am at on this you clowns... my very soon to be wife, Gloria Bogen is a member of the Saint Paul Police reserves. Every night during the convention she put on her blue uniform and patrolled bridges in downtown Saint Paul. She did foot patrol on the High Bridge on two nights, did the Wabasha Bridge on another and was working the bridges across the freeway when the mess near the Capitol blew up.

So, while clowns like you Swifty looked for chances to make trouble some people were out there keeping idiots like you safe.

I support those who protested peacefully and those who managed the crowds with restraint and dignity.

Chuck, while I'm ever so grateful, I'd gladly excuse your soon-to-be- wife from body guard duty in exchange for keeping Bucky at home with his bong while the cops are cleaning itinerant scumbags out of my neighborhood.

Like I said, I was wearing a valid press pass, standing across the street. Your scumbag friends are clearly seen making the effort to cause trouble, not I...or are you saying we shouldn't have the right to stand on our sidewalks while leftists plan their attacks on our democratic institutions?

Listen, Chuck, it's not that I don't appreciate Gloria's hulking presence when danger is near, it's just that it's hard enough to get a cop to do anything of real value without leftist kooks assing things up when they do.

BTW, what's Gloria benching these days?

Swifty,

What was clear from your video was that they thought you were a cop pretending to be an idiot with a camera, not an actual idiot with a camera.

From what I heard of the comments, they think that you are a fake, a plant, an officer of the law pretending to be some irrational right wing nut case pretending to be a member of the media.


They don't believe that you are a member of the media, because you don't look smart enough to construct a sentence. They think you have been selected by Fletch to stand there and film them for that reason. Their reactions are pretty open that they think that they are trying to get an officer filming them to blow his cover and maybe assault them.

All of those actions directed against an officer are not that unusual. That is the kind of abuse that our officers expected from a some (not all) of the protesters. Most of them wouldn't have found it to be a big deal, they aren't as thin skinned, paranoid or grandiose as you.

It takes a special kind of person, to do what you did Swifty. You have to nurture the illusion that you are important enough that anyone cares about your presence. Believe me, had anyone known who you were they would have ignored you... as most people do most of the time.

You can insult Gloria all you like. She is running for office and idiots like you will be nasty if they choose to be, but even if we weren't getting married, I would still have great admiration for her being willing to volunteer to be in a place that had all of the potential to be life threatening. Those reserve officers were out their with no guns to protect their person. In a place with all sorts of idiots like you trying to stir up trouble.

So you acknowledge you all knew those nasty smelling scumbags were apt to commit violence, and yet, there was your BFF, Dave "Bucky" Thune, keeping the coppers at bay.

What a guy, eh Chuck?

I wonder if you'd be spouting the same idiotic papspew if Gloria, that beat walking protector of Swiftee, would have gotten the living shit kicked out of her by the people your buddy, Dave Thune, kept on the streets?

Heck, they didn't think twice (well, at first) about testing the water with a 200 lb., strapping guy such as myself that even you admit they thought was a cop...you think Gloria's uniform would have slowed them down, dim-wit?

I wonder if you'd be talking smack if I'd have been the guy that clubbed them off of her.

Pffft. Never mind, li'l fella. We know, we know.

FWIW, I wasn't making fun of Gloria. I was trying to shame the fricking moron that lets his wife-to-be walk around a "life threatening" area, unarmed.

I should have known you'd had to have lost any and all sense of shame the day you took the job as Bucky Thune's butt boy.

Tom...

There are paranoid, grandiose, narrow minded, self centered people in the world, and there are those who are willing to do their part to make their corner of the world a better place to live.

You and I fit in the first category and Gloria in the second.

She actually cares enough about Saint Paul to volunteer a couple hundred hours a year to try and make it a better place to live. She feels words like honor and responsibility and there would be no way in hell that she wouldn't have been out there with her fellow officers during the RNC.

Now the big difference between you and I is that you would actually think that the following sentence makes sense: "I was trying to shame the fricking moron that lets his wife-to-be walk around a "life threatening" area, unarmed."

First, I haven't ever "let" Gloria do anything in my life and I don't expect that I ever will, and I wouldn't want to be with any woman who would be willing to wait for my permission to do anything.

Second, "shame" are you freaking kidding me? Do you know how impressed I was that she was willing to do that?

You don't have a clue how lucky I feel to be with a woman who has that kind of integrity, passion and concern for her fellow citizens. I know that you don't understand this Swiftee, but woman are people to.

You aren't very bright are you Swiftee?

Well then, in light of that very metro-sexual confession, Chuck, let me retract and modify my previous statement.

I was attempting to shame you (lost cause) and I mock your dim-witted, soon-to-be wife.

If it's any consolation Chuck, I'd still have clubbed Bucky's scumbag pals off your soon-to-be wife; even though, according to you, she's not very smart and you either don't have a full enough nutsack to make any impression on her, or are just as dim-witted as she is...your call, buddy.

See? I helped; I'm a helper.

Sour Milk

A good analogy for our what our current two party political system has morphed into would be if dairy departments at grocery stores only sold two brands of milk, and both brands were always sour. The two distributors of the two brands of milk have things set up so that no other brands are allowed to be sold nationwide. This means you only have these two choices, no matter where you go, and that's it.

So you go in and buy a quart of the Democratic milk, you get home drink it and it's sour, so you dump it down the sink. The next day you go back to the store and you buy some Republican milk. You get home, drink that one and it is just as sour as the Democratic milk was, so you again dump it down the sink.

The following day you you say to yourself: "Well maybe I just got a bad batch of Democratic milk", so you try it again. You get home, drink it, and it's sour, AGAIN. The next day you give Republican milk another try, and it's just as sour as the Democratic milk was, AGAIN, so down the drain it goes.

Now even though both milks are lousy, they have very unique packaging. Some people REALLY like the Democratic milk carton with the promises of quality milk inside, so they keep buying it hoping it will get better, but it doesn't. Same for the Republican milk carton. Different promises on the carton that appeal to different people, but still lousy milk inside.

There really is no incentive for either the Republicans or Democrats to actually make their milk better because they know you only have one other choice. When you get sick of the other brand of bad milk the only choice you have is to go back to theirs, so both just put all their money into marketing and packaging. As a result both have the prettiest milk cartons, and promises around. Heck I even hear one of the milk distributers is even PLEDGING that THIS time their milk wont be sour, (But personally I have my doubts about that, judging by some pretty consistent past performances).

Now a funny thing has happened over the years, many people have gotten used to the sour milk being peddled to them. Some swear by the Republican sour milk while others swear by the Democratic sour milk. I know, I know, that is really hard to believe but just look around, there are happy sour milk drinkers all around you!

But there is also something else going on. More and more people are figuring out that neither brand of milk is any good, and neither is getting any better, so they are giving up drinking either milk, and are desperately looking for another choice.

Most of my life I've was told that it was a great thing that we lived in a country that only sells two brands of milk. Now that I am a bit older and have tried both brands for many, many years, I now know that is not true. But it does make me wonder if all this sour milk being peddled by Democrats and Republicans over the years, is where the old saying came from that; "There is no sense in crying over spilt milk."
