Houthis gonna end?

The situation in and around the holy land does NOT look good. But hey, no one can control these towel-heads anyway and Barack has done a lot of outreach over the past 6 years so it's hard to blame him, right?
Not everyone is so forgiving. “We’re in a goddamn free fall here,” said James Jeffrey, who served as Obama’s ambassador to Iraq and was a top national security aide in the George W. Bush White House.
Washington DC worldview
Well, JJ was a Bushie before he joined team 0 and he oversaw Iraq - take a look at that country. Mess.  So I'll discount the hype even if the independents take it seriously. Politico's Adam Baron sets everyone straight by explaining What We Get Wrong About Yemen - I love the "We", what frigg'n "We" is he talking about? The "We" running Politico? The "We" inside the beltway that get things wrong? The "We" of "We The People"? Perhaps it is the Royal "We" - He who laments the fact that he's not a king. Nope, it's the Global "We" meaning every member nation of the "international community" - that means you Western powers, Saudi Arabia or Egypt so...
"The truth is far more complex, and the solution right now should be more along the lines of: Just stay out of it."
Not going to happen Mr. Baron. The distance between Riyadh and Sanaa is approximately the same distance between Washington DC and Chicago, IL. If a "regional conflict" engulfed the Land of Lincoln and Rahm Emanuel were forced to flee City Hall while Farrakhan and the NOI killed all heretics Politico would not "stay out of it." In fact, Mr. Baron and his ilk would be flipping freaking out and fearing for their lives (with reason). You can't brush something like that off with bromides like this:
"But what is abundantly clear at the moment is that this remains, by and large, an internal Yemeni political conflict—one that, despite frequent sectarian mischaracterizations and potential regional implications, remains deeply rooted in local Yemeni issues."
Note the qualifiers - "by and large" and "potential". That's called fortune-telling on Germanwings with a parachute strapped on your back. But who can blame this visiting fellow at the European Council on Foreign Relations for day dreaming and wishful thinking - the alternative is a bloody regional war that pits religious sects against one another in a multinational contest for dominance. A Game of Thrones with nukes and I'm not sure what "We" can get right about that.

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
