The Chagrin that saved Christmas

Learning is hard because it requires making mistakes and if you're the kind of person who doesn't make mistakes (which most people are) then admitting you've made one, which is the prerequisite for learning, hurts - it hurts bad. This President has been strapped to the couch and "analyzed" over and over throughout his two terms and pro or con I think most of these armchair shrinks fail to diagnose the man and his mind. His Presidential Address to the Nation last night left his supporters and critics flailing about for a very simple reason - he didn't say much of anything that he hasn't said a thousand times before and everyones already commented on those previous times with barrels of ink and mountains of bits or pixels or whatever. But there was, mixed in with all the usual cant, a glimmer of hope - the distant sound of the Whos singing far down in the valley reaching the Presidents ear and, perhaps, some growth in his heart.
"The FBI is still gathering the facts about what happened in San Bernardino, but here is what we know.  The victims were brutally murdered and injured by one of their coworkers and his wife.  So far, we have no evidence that the killers were directed by a terrorist organization overseas, or that they were part of a broader conspiracy here at home.  But it is clear that the two of them had gone down the dark path of radicalization, embracing a perverted interpretation of Islam that calls for war against America and the West.  They had stockpiled assault weapons, ammunition, and pipe bombs.  So this was an act of terrorism, designed to kill innocent people."
Hard words people - hard to speak them even if they're just scrolling on a teleprompter and hard to accept the doors those words open. It took him days to give this address - days of processing and thinking about what his administrations strategy had accomplished - and I believe that he doesn't want to ever give it again. The humbling of Barak H Obama might, just might, spur him on to coldly, mercilessly kick Jihadi ass way beyond what Geo. Bush could have dreamed of doing. The media will turn a blind eye if Obama takes off the gloves - especially if he misdirects attention with "gun control" rhetoric to keep the nattering nabobs focused on domestic politics. Watch what the Grinch does, not what he says over the next 12 months. Chances are good that he'll leave the White House and international troop deployments looking a lot like they did the day he came into office. Special Forces creeping back into Iraq, no one's leaving Afghanistan, GITMO open and taking new arrivals - An eight year pause in the long war for Western Civilization and when it's wrapping up in Dec 2016 we'll all be in a big circle singing:
Fah who foraze! Dah who doraze!
Welcome Christmas, come this way!
Fah who foraze! Dah who doraze!
Welcome Christmas, Christmas Day!

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
