Fake Presidents Part II

The collectivists in the USA love to talk about something called The Reality Based Media that sees the world as it really is, as opposed to the false way that so many stupid voters perceive their unreality. One of my favorite ways the RBM try to help the rubes who are brainwashed by Rush Limbaugh and Fox News is by creating Fake Presidents - i.e. Reality Based Presidents that should exists, but don't. The best of these many fake Presidents so far has been the sanctimonious scold President Josiah "Jed" Bartlet played by Martin Sheen on West Wing.

There's a new movie called the Death of a President where the current "real" President George Bush is assassinated and using special effects it looks really real. He's murdered by a black man angry that his son died senselessly in the Iraq theater of the War on Terror. But everyone in the US blames a Muslim man and he is scapegoated by the stupid people who don't live in Reality Based communities - like say, the independent Film Community in the UK.

Released yesterday, we have a film built upon the premise that someone like Bill Maher or Keith Olbermann could be elected President of the United States of America. Now that's funny?



In 1992 Barry Levinson and Robin Williams teamed up to make a movie called Toys that ranks as one of the worst movies I've ever seen. In fact, I have not seen a movie, TV show or anything made by Barry Levinson since wasting 118 minutes digesting this fable of a mad general who takes over a toy factory and his idealistic nephew, a man named Leslie, who stops him. Well, the team of Levinson and Williams are back with what looks to be a tired satire of modern politics. The Trailer for the film Man of the Year and corresponding web site TomDobbs.com are a depressing reminder of how much the contemporary left hates democracy. I will not be wasting time or money supporting this juvenile meditation on contemporary politics but I will Ring the Clown Bell for Levinson/Williams.

The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson

She was "sexy", but "too much hard work." I'm a regular Fox & Friends viewer (mostly in protest of the other insipid morning programs like Today and Good Morning America) so over the years I've gotten to know Gretchen Carlson pretty well. Stuck between Steve and Brian she always seemed a prudish scold with an irritating, self-righteous demeanor that I simply put up with because I figured some people in the Fox audience actually liked her persona. It was obvious that Steve and Brian did not, but they were stuck with her like so many talking heads and had to make the best of it - which they did. Besides, she was no worse than any of the other women on morning show TV - I mean, you're only going to find a certain kind of person to do this kind of work and that kind of person is the Gretchen Carlson kind. Then, one day, she was gone and replaced by Elisabeth Hasselbeck and the F&F ratings began to climb, and climb and climb - in two months view

No Step On Snek

On The 2020 Election: In an elemental way We the People of the United States lost because Trump, and the MAGA movement he champions, forced the Deep State/Administrative State/New World Order (whatever you want to call it) and its enablers in Corporate America - Finance/FakeNews/Big Tech - to declare their sovereignty and steal our election in the most obvious way possible. The brazenness and " in yo face " shamelessness of the crime is a big part of its effectiveness and loudly proclaims an intent to demoralize and defeat the America First ideology which actually won the highest number of votes in this nation's history. It wasn't even close and that was made clear when key cities in 5 or 6 swing states declared they would pause (stop) counting(?!) votes until all the rural districts had submitted results allowing the big city machines to manufacture the ballots required to put Jo(((k)))e Biden in the lead. NPC's and Normies don't get too critical of process a

I've Got You Dumb Motherfuckers Eating Right Out Of My Hand

The branches of government In 2011 John Lasseter wrote an opinion piece for The Onion which exposed Pixar's production strategy and shocking success in the marketplace : "Yes, after the success of our first few movies we had a hunch you'd continue to enjoy the wonderfully designed animation and our smart, lyrical writing, but I didn't think we'd create a horde of drooling morons ready to drop everything just to watch a fucking rat cook dinner." This observation was in reference to a Pixar film titled "Ratatouille" about a rat who dreams of becoming a French chef which, to my lights, created one of the most unappetizing and subversive stories ever told. The idea of rats running roughshod in a Michelin-starred restaurant is bad enough but when the proposition that "Anyone can cook" is taken to its evil and impossible extreme I must object for France and humanity. Using that movie and others as an example Lasseter makes the point that his
