Cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war

One of the greatest things, of many great things, about The Donald and Trumpian "ideology", as such, is the epistemological meltdown occurring among the conservative commentariat. This is happening EVERYWHERE - NatReview, Fox News, Red State.com, etc. and I could fill this blog with links to Trump bashing by every "sensible" "conservative" pundit in America if I wanted to - but keeping it short and sweet, here's a sample:

He’s Neidermeyer from Animal House
He Sounds Like a Drug-Addled Rock Star
He's Worse Than Machiavellian
He's Awesome, Terrible
He's One Rich Guy

And today the Mr. Chips of DC punditry warns of Caesarism and sees the ghost of George Wallace (of all people) in Trumps trumping of the trump-trumps. How's this for an opening?
"Every sulfurous belch from the molten interior of the volcanic Trump phenomenon injures the chances of a Republican presidency."
You don't say? And I thought the Republicans had a powerful bench of tested politicians who were experienced and super-duper capable of leading the country. But these sad sacks are getting their ass handed to them by Donald J Trump of Queens, NY - How about that?! And worst of all, the GOP's "talented critics of the administrative state are being drowned out" because no one's listening to their wonderful criticism, their policy prescriptions and talking points - There listening to the dude with bouffant hairdo and gigantic balls who's speaking off the cuff and making a heck of a lot of sense to the average Joe (not "lunch bucket Joe Biden" but all the other Joe's).

But these average voters don't understand the complexity of demographic changes and voting patterns  like blah, blah, blah. White voters are shrinking and Hispanic and Asian voters are growing and "because Trump's appeal must derive primarily from his views about immigration" the GOP is killing itself chasing Know-Nothing Nativism. At least that's how they see it from DC which is where George Will and all the other talking heads and scribbler pundits live. But out in the land of the free people see a need to toss the game board on the ground and scramble the pieces because the game of contemporary politics is rigged and no matter how "talented" the critics of the administrative state might be they can't or won't change the rules. That includes the pundits, news organizations (including FOX News) and even "conservative" talk radio all of which operate WITHIN the current paradigm of big centralized government and syndicated opinion/news about IT distributed nationwide to passive viewers watching the show. George Will has been making talented critiques of the Progressive Leviathan since 1972 - to what end? Send in the clowns Jorge, Don't you love farce?

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.

Who voted for this guy?

Who voted for this guy? It's been ten days since the results of the Maricopa County, Arizona ballot audit were released to the public and presented at a hearing held by the state senate. This exercise in democratic accountability had been going on for months and, if reports are to be believed, was completed well over a  month before the September 24th hearing where   overwhelming proof of an illegitimate election was presented to lawmakers . The audit showed multiple irregularities, fake ballots, duplicate counts, errors, omissions and egregious acts of sabotage and obstinance by the Maricopa County board of supervisors who did everything they could to withhold and destroy evidence of wrongdoing from the citizen sleuths. The misfeasance of Arizona's political leaders was clearly defined, shocking and (for some) beyond belief but somehow these facts were discovered, organized, packaged and suppressed for MONTHS by the Cyber Ninjas who were attempting to "get to the bottom&q

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.
