...all in the name of ambition!

Dear Reader,
I would like to point out that we are living through a unique and original moment in literary history and someday the tweets and retweets of our FWPOTUS Donald J. Trump will be collected, cataloged and bound in some heretofore uninvented form of "book" with hyperlinks, video/audio playback and a fully annotated QAnon appendices in recognition of what must by now be admitted to be a prolonged work of omnipotent (and very stable) genius.


I started this blog post last Sunday after Jeff Epstein's murder in Federal lockup was reported on Saturday AM and Trump retweeted the comedian Terrence K. Williams riffing on the obvious suspicions that Hillbilly whacked the Stein to shut down any legal proceeding that would expose their association with the sex trafficking extortionist. Mr. Williams is NOT a conspiracy theorists, which the #FakeNews insisted on labeling him, but an Afro-American funnyman whos ribaldry has a decidedly #MAGA slant. But I am a conspiracy theor…

8/8 = double infinity Honk Honk

"MSNBC analyst Frank Figliuzzi drew a numerical connection on Monday between neo-Naziism and the Trump administration's decision to fly flags at half-mast until Aug. 8 in honor of the victims of a pair of mass shootings."

Mr. Figliuzzi is a former FBI assistant director... for Counterintelligence.

"The numbers 88 are very significant in neo-Nazi and white supremacy movement. Why? Because the letter ‘H’ is the eighth letter of the alphabet, and to them the numbers 8-8 together stand for ‘Heil Hitler.’ So we’re going to be raising the flag back up at dusk on 8/8."
"No one is thinking about this," he added.

I'm thinking about it. I'm thinking real hard. And I'm not thinking about it to make fun of Frank's TDS or to joke about the #FakeNews shit (there's no other word for it) that MSNPC puts out over the airwaves and internet. I'm thinking about the possible reality that Stephen Miller is sending a very high pitched "dog whistle…

Reciprocity City

I was looking forward to my weekend tweetstorm from POTUS - the previous weekends had been consumed with tweet inspired commentary on "The Squad" and "King Elijah" with devastating effect - but all I got was a couple of tweets on trade deals, tariffs and Jina. Then the El Paseo mass murder started and I understood why Trump was keeping his powder dry. Patience is one of DJT's greatest strategic strengths and he's using it with brutal effectiveness right now on the mass murder front.

The drive from Allen, TX to El Paseo, TX is 9 hours of boredom and unless you've trudged your ass across the west Texas plain you can't imagine the monotony of the landscape. It gives a guy a lot of time to think - "what am I doing on this road?", "do I really want to kill all these people?", "why am I doing this?" - and it makes me wonder who activated this asset and sent him to Beto's home town to shoot up the soft target Walmart. That…

Nation(alism) is for the birds

Earlier this summer I took my son to watch the film "Apollo 11" and though I've seen several documentaries and feature films about lunar exploration including Al Reinert's 20th anniversary masterpiece "For All Mankind" and Stanley Kubrick's prophetic "2001: A Space Odyssey" there was a sequence in this new expose that was so moving and powerful I simply must call it out. There are a set of shots capturing the faces of the 3 astronauts going through the preparations and suiting-up just prior to boarding the rocket that will launch them into outer space and, eventually, the Moon. These stoic images take place fairly early in the film with a Walter Cronkite voice over interspersed with short (and rapid) montages of family photos and home movies encapsulating each man's private life. The overall effect was, for me, incredibly moving and I can feel tears welling in my eyes even now just recalling it because the faces of these relatively young …

At Home He’s A Tourist

"The Indian smiles, he thinks that the cowboy is his friend. The cowboy smiles, he is glad the Indian is fooled. Now he can exploit him."


The lads from Leeds that made up Gang of Four and released the 1979 LP titled "entertainment!" (note the exclamation point) were crypto commie art students and hipsters (before there were hipsters) in the pre-Thatcher British mode. As this blog has pointed out on previous occasions it is often "men of the Left" who blurt out the truth and strike a chord even when their intention is diametrically opposed to truth telling. It all comes down to a sly bit of Agitprop plastered on the cover of the album with shots of an Indian (the Native American kind) and a Cowboy shaking hands and the words - "The Indian smiles, he thinks that the cowboy is his friend. The cowboy smiles, he is glad the Indian is fooled. Now he can exploit him." Very clever but the key to the riddle is the last sentence which does not define who …

Roundup the Commies

Since I'm the guy responsible for keeping the parking lot and patio weed free, managing the flower beds and, in the late spring or early summer, planting acers of corn and pumpkins I'm a big time proponent of herbicides based on glyphosate like "Roundup". Since I use many, many gallons of the stuff I tend to buy the concentrate 5 gallon containers from Southern States and mix my own brew, but custom mixed or just off the shelf it all works the same -  the glyphosate neutralizes a specific enzyme that plants (any and all plants) use to create the proteins necessary for growth. It's a beautiful and miraculous thing to "watch" it work because the end comes slowly, imperceptibly over time from the moment the weeds are sprayed they start dying and by day 10 they're dead and gone. If you look at the grass sprouting up through your driveway on day 2 or 3 you'd think, "geez, that stuff isn't working at all" but then a week later you wheel…

July 5th - Disposable Culture

In our time of conflict and confusion as we ride out the earthquake of the cultural revolution and the tsunami of the digital revolution and the meteor strike of the Trump Presidency it is a popular pastime to attempt to pinpoint the root cause or start date for all the pain and disappointment. Was it the Kennedy assassination (the first one - JFK) when America "lost its innocence" or the 1967 Summer of Love with its degenerate hippy ethos or was it Nixon's impeachment and the silent coup which installed Jimmy Peanut or the Reagan Restoration? Do our troubles have even deeper roots? The McCarthy Witch Hunts of the 1950's when Russian operatives had infiltrated key parts of the US Government (hey, wait a second...) or maybe the establishment of the Administrative State, the Intelligence Community and the Military/Industrial Complex under FDR's New Deal. Perhaps it was the American Civil War (War Between the States) and the forced union and reconstruction of our c…
