WoodStein continue to shock the nation - context is all

The most amazing feature of the U.S mass media is how it's leadership and decision makers are bound by the 1960's mind set and can't understand that the world has changed. Take for instance last weeks segment of Meet the Press where Bob WoodStein and Carl Bernward were dragged out one more time to discuss "Watergate" - this time in the context of protecting confidential sources. How foolish can two pompous blowhards be - here is the killer line from the interview -

"MR. RUSSERT: When Mr. Felt was sharing this information with Bob Woodward, and Bob Woodward with you, Carl Bernstein, you, early on, had a sense of just the bigness of it. And while getting a cup of coffee at a machine at The Washington Post, turned to Bob Woodward and said, "Oh, my God, Richard Nixon is going to be impeached."
MR. BERNSTEIN: That's right.
MR. RUSSERT: And Mr. Woodward said, "Don't ever say that in this newsroom."
MR. BERNSTEIN: That's correct. And the reason is that context is all. It's not just the individual facts. Just as context is all in the Karl Rove case. It's not just about Karl Rove. It's about WMD. It's about the truthfulness of the White House. And in Watergate, we were able to get this context very early because not originally Deep Throat but rather the bookkeeper for the committee for the re-election of the president, some other sources that Bob and I had, and Mark Felt all described to us this incredible "switchblade atmosphere" in the White House...
MR. BERNSTEIN: ...and that context told us Watergate wasn't just about a break-in. It was about a mentality."

That's right - it's about a mentality alright. One of the most destructive mentalities on the planet is that of the "modern journalist" who's false objectivity is used as a shield to lie and deceive the public to achieve political ends. This is the true legacy of Woodstein- insufferable hacks presented as courageous news hounds and getting filthy rich in the process.

Please, please go away.

While the Woodstein creature's fifteen minutes have long ago expired, here the fetid fusion is spot on about not sabotaging the full discovery of context. We would be fortunate to find out that the current context is as
"innocent" as simple Nixonian, megalomaniacal desperation. In the abstract, the only meaningful difference between today's world and that of the Laugh-in era is that, in the interim, the right - with its ludicrous knack for situational morality - has determined for us all that extra-marital sex is more heinous than thievery, murder, and treason. God help America.
If it's time for single-minded dead wood to go away, let's toss in Negroponte, Wolfowitz, Abrams, Rumsfeld, and Cheney. And without them, the mirage that is "W" would simply, and mercifully, vanish. Clang the bell and paint a smile on Uncle Sam; we are all clowns unless and until we dismantle the Neo-con crime cabal.
I broke one bell already over that party favor, Gannon/Guckert. Geez these guys are incompetent freaks! Too bad they're dangerous, or I'd be laughing my #@@ off daily.

Blue Devils and Yellow Cowards

A few weeks ago Duke lost Coach K’s last game at Camron Indoor Stadium to the schools hated rival, North Carolina University, in an epic grudge match. It was an “ unacceptable ” finale for the maniacal ferret-faced competitor who created the 40 year dynastic Duke hoops program with 1,000+ wins and fists full of ACC and NCAA championships but for Tar Heels everywhere it was a day of retribution. Michael  William Krzyzewski, is a red-blooded All-American college basketball coach of Polish and Ukrainian descent who grew up in Chicago’s famous Ukrainian Village which is (or at least was) culturally very reminiscent of the Rus borderlands. That is to say that young S h-shef-ski   grew up as  far away (psychology) from Dixie as is possible while still living within the borders of the USA. That makes him the perfect choice to represent Duke University and the Yankee overachievers who emigrate to Durham for 4 years of education and networking before moving back to non-Southern civilization.

Psycho Killer, qu'est-ce?

I came into this wicked world in the early 1960's and as a result I have born witness to America's 50 Years of Failure which includes the modern age of mass shootings by psychotic men who "go off" on a given day, for no reason at all (except "guns"), and kill scads of innocent bystanders. Back in August of 2019 a KOTCB blog post titled " Reciprocity City " explored a young  gunman  named Patrick Crusius  who drove 9 hours through the west Texas flatlands to shoot up El Paso, TX The KOTCB has commented on many of these shootings, bombings and knifings over the years -  The roots of the Boston Marathon Bombing ,  the Emanuel AME Church shooting ,  Syed Rizvan Farook and his bride Tashfeen Malik ,  Ft. Lauderdale Airport shooting ,  Nick Cruz lovesick Parkland shooting ,  the Iranian, PETA activist, Vegan Bodybuilder, YouTuber's attack on Google  and now this very oddly timed and placed "lone wolf" attack on Walmart shoppers. This list

Mask Off

U.S. District Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle finally did it - after 14 months of mandatory masking by order of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) this capricious and ineffectual edict has been ruled unconstitutional and, it follows, illegal.  Since January 29, 2021 the CDC has prohibited citizens to travel without wearing a mask but the insanity actually started as far back as July 14, 2020 when " CDC calls on Americans to wear masks to prevent COVID-19 spread ." That's 643 days of stupidity folks - it covers the Kenosha Riots, the attempted kidnapping of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, the Fake 2020 Election, the 1/6 Save America March and Insurrection, Jo(((K)))e Brandon's phony Inauguration, Trump's 2nd Impeachment, a horrible year of pathetic "leadership" from every single elected official in Washington DC, a war in Eastern Europe - and NOW, at long last, a federal judge in Florida ends the mask tyranny with one simple ruling from her bench.
