Superstition XXVI

You might think I'd write a blog post about the ludicrous halftime show of Super Bowl XLIX or the pre-game travesty with it's strange cast of characters or the advertisements. Maybe the Presidents lame duck pregame interview deserves a few remarks. I should comment on the insufferable commentary during the game by Chris Collinsworth. But I'd like to take you back, dear reader, to a Super Bowl long, long ago and it's long tail reverberations for the USA. It was a time of happiness and relief - The Redskins were dominant in the NFL and no one complained about their mascot, the Soviets were defeated and Marxism was disorganized and in retreat, Islamic terrorism was something that happened somewhere else - the future looked bright.

There was one humorous "scandal" rocking the Democrat Party because one of their prospective candidates had been accused of having an affair with the fetching Jennifer Flowers. It's hard to believe now, but this news was about to sink Bill Clinton's dream of becoming President (and sink the dreams of his wife too*). Even though everyone inside the DC political culture knew the allegation  was true - and that includes the journalists and news readers for the networks - there was a sense within Democrat establishment that extraordinary measures must be employed to save this guys bacon. CBS's award winning "news show" 60 minutes is part of that Democrat establishment so they inserted a special 10 minute episode right after the Super Bowl so that all of America could watch this.


Don Hewitt - "Listen Jim, Mike Wallace won't do it, he likes Bob Kerry who thinks your guys a dirtbag."
James Carville - "Shoot Don, I don't care what Mike Wallace thinks. I don't want him for the interview anyway."
Don Hewitt - "Well, who do you want then Lesley Stahl?"
James Carville - "Damn it, are you trying to piss me off? We're trying to win the female vote man not have our candidate burned at the stake. We want Steve Croft."
Don Hewitt - "Steve Croft?"
James Carville - "Yes, Steve Croft, we like him."

Now I think we know the reason why - He likes his mistress to dress like Laura Bush (what a freak).

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

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

@POTUS hasn’t Tweeted

What happened to the 11,000 tweets? Twitter has conducted a "purge" of "conservative" voices from its "platform" and that includes the account of one Donald J Trump who happens to be the President of the United States of America. To which I say GOOD! Let's take it from the top. A purge (the bad kind) does not include getting kicked off a social network. If that's such a bad thing then the problem is with the society and not the network. Purges are when police officers bust down your door at 3AM, grab you and drive out to some empty field where they shoot you in the head and then tossed your limp body in a mass grave. A conservative is someone like Mitt Romney or these tools at the Lincoln Project who are free to post whatever lies or inflammatory rhetoric they want on Twitter. Twitter has no hatred for “conservatives” or Republicans as far as that goes and I don't think a single member of Congress or the political establishment has been "p
