We are in uncharted territory, in the land of shiny objects. Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity. — Martin Luther King Without Chelsea Manning, Julian Assange is just another fringe actor who resents what he sees as American hegemonic hubris. — P.J. Crowley, Assistant Secretary of State, 2009 -2011 […]
Dispatches from Wolf Country — Old Men Yelling at Clouds The process of election affords a moral certainty, that the office of President will never fall to the lot of any man who is not in an eminent degree endowed with the requisite qualifications. Talents for low intrigue, and the little arts of popularity, may […]
The new name for the Democrat Party should rightly be the CONTRA-CONSTITUTIONAL PARTY. According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, contra means, in opposition or contrast to, which is a perfect description of the modern day Democrat Party’s opposition to the U.S. Constitution. It can no longer be thought of as the party of John F. Kennedy […]
Let them ask What would Lee do? Kind of a dicey relationship with politics Don’t treat Alabama folks like they’re stupid! “Wondering what it’s coming to and how it got this far”–Guy Clark, Texas 1947 We’re here of course because Alabama has had kind of a dicey relationship with politics in recent decades. Luther […]
Word Press asked, “What’s on your mind” this Black Friday morning?Two things, really: The wealth of premier league Rugby this weekend; and, oddly enough, the intersection between someone who probably have should been nominated as Poet Laureate and a recovering Republican Congressman who’s marrying a blonde, Democratic policy wonk — Maya Angelou and Joe Scarborough. […]
Anybody else got gallows humor thought about that coffee cup? We always figured that the presidents — from Washington to Obama — had a pretty good idea of what they were supposed to be doing and would try to do it. This guy? Not so much. No unifying theme except his ego, insecurity, greed, and pathological […]
Did he bring the family? What’s the Mother’s name.Mary, oh, I’m so nervous! I read the book today, Mary Hail, Hail Mary. Lenny Bruce, 1967 The problem with people who bring religion to their politics is that they’re obsessed with sex. It’s never “I’m a devout Anglican, therefore I couldn’t possibly vote for a […]
Pulling out of the Paris Climate Agreement or the Trans-Pacific Partnership international treaties by President Donald Trump was no big deal, relatively, because no one was in any real or immediate danger of dying because of it, regardless of what the alarmist climate progressives or international globalist corporations may have screamed about.
In one of their latest, hidden games of nefarious politics, the New York City Deep State local government continues to bicker, sabotage and undercut each other, using the most visible and sensitive aspects of Big Apple life, the MTA Subway System. One only has to have ridden the subway in the last few months to […]
One of the oddities of the past couple of years is the election of a “Builder” president whose wealth is derived not so much from Building as from branding based on family capital derived from boarding houses, bordellos, racial profiling and being a slum lord. He delights in slapping gold facing on things and chiseling […]
It’s truly time to pin the blame on the parties/individuals responsible for, on a near daily basis, bringing the world to the brink of nuclear war in World War III. Because of the serious nature of their constant provocations, it is no longer acceptable for these mysterious, cowardly, and elusive figures to find peace and […]
For all of the faults of the previous President Barack Obama administration, mainly created by various elements of which he had little to no control over, one can not deny that President Barack Obama made enormous strides in addressing and redressing the historic and deeply entrenched human rights violations existing within the American psyche and […]
Donald Trump Jr Did Nothing Wrong By Collecting Criminal Information on Hillary Clinton From Any Source
Donald Trump Jr did nothing wrong by collecting potential criminally incriminating information about a prospective presidential candidate Hillary Clinton from ANY source, as this would protect the American people, the United States of America, and further the interests of law enforcement and justice.
I could go on for pages about the G20 and the sad and shameful performance of the President/Manatee for Life, but why would I want to? The meeting with Putin and the orchestration of it so successfully by Lavrov and Putin to keep the competent out and the naifs in, the absurd fawning posture of […]
As far as Saddam Hussein being a great military strategist: He is neither a strategist, nor is he schooled in the operational art, nor is he a tactician, nor is he a general, nor is he a soldier.
In a hugely symbolic victory of sound economics and practicality triumphing over stupid, backwards and idiotic sectarian violence, religious, and ethnic discrimination, the French oil refining company Total has successfully brokered a joint oil drilling/natural gas development deal with Qatar (Sunni dominated) and Iran (Shia dominated) as joint partners. Only a few weeks ago, Saudi […]
It is now a sign of success and well adjustment to be completely and totally sociopathic in the modern day developed first world. If one exhibits any semblance of humanity or compassion, one is considered altogether weak and not fully adapted to the consumer-driven culture of the current age, where not only are articles of […]
One man’s road is another man’s rut, one man’s if is another man’s but One man’s treasure is another man’s trash, one man’s landin’ is another man’s crash One man’s word is another man’s lie, one man’s dirt is another man’s sky One man’s skin is another man’s color, one man’s killer is another man’s […]
I have absolute and immense respect for living and fallen veterans. I have no doubt they were and are heroic in their fortitude and efforts.
There’s been a lot happening, and I have been not writing because I really haven’t wanted to. This is turning into a META-time; so much happening that we need to look at the underlying issues and try to see trends rather than just reacting. And then, the Trump situation blows up on another front, or the same front, or multiple fronts.
Wait what the hell just happened! Obama tells Trump “Don’t make Flynn NSA Chief!”so He did! A bitter Hilarity ensues! Fifty Years of Blonde on Blonde! Irish Taliban Investigates Stephen Fry for Blasphemy ! You really can’t make this shit up! Well, that’s one debate settled. America and Great Britain are both largely populated by […]
With the recent Syrian tomahawk missile attack by the Trump Administration after what appeared to have been dubious evidence of Syrian culpability, President Donald Trump lost a great deal of his loyal supporters and followers. This is because tens of millions of Americans (as well as hundreds of millions of people overseas) felt that he […]
For the better part of the last 70 years, since the end of World War 2, the proverbial U.S. Deep State has gone through several changes/metamorphoses, starting with their initial inception as the literal NAZI intelligentsia, spies, medical doctors, scientists, eugenicists, social engineers, and other parasites of humanity when they were brought over to the […]
When coal country keeps foundering, what will the loud-mouthed president say then? What lies… A relatively old man. I will die in the foreseeable future; this will will have no effect on me. On the future? Sweet Jesus… Republicans lie, Appalachian Democrats enable and nobody does anything meaningful or positive Lawrence O’ Donnell had Bill […]
The current U.S. Debt hovers around 23 trillion dollars, and the overall debt is rumored to be around ten times that, and is expected to grow by another $10 trillion in the next 10 years. It is absolutely and totally unpayable, and has doomed the American people (and its government) to complete and total slavery. […]
The worst government is often the most moral. One composed of cynics is often very tolerant and humane. But when fanatics are on top there is no limit to oppression. — Mencken This story from Keith Olbermann’s daily Podcast “Resist!” presented by GQ raised a question in my mind that I’m going to struggle with. […]
It is quite obvious why various elements of the Deep State are vehemently against President Donald Trump’s temporary immigration ban and increased vetting procedures from certain countries in the world, and no, it’s not because they are “compassionate” or even give a damn about these people. This is obvious because these same Deep State elements […]
Interlocutor: Hey, buddy, remember when what’s his name gave that speech about whatever it was and the Republicans were all acting like it was time to break out the free Bubble Up and Rainbow stew? When the hell was that, it seems a long time ago? Responder: Buddy, it was two days ago… He shall […]
Jefferson was a gentleman, a product of his time and a forerunner of the best modern public intellectuals and philosophers. Instead, we have chosen for the position of the most powerful human in the world, an illiterate, ignorant, self-obsessed and insecure man who thinks not in complete thoughts but in incomplete subordinate causes.
Ignorance X Arrogance X Ideological Confusion > speed of light 4% of a century run by a rentier class that assumes carte blanche As the Orange Orangutan approaches the outskirts of Bethlehem doing a pretty fair approximation of the rough beast of Yeats poem, I’m wondering what the future holds in a lot of ways.
