Hitler consolidates power in Germany - Age 45
Mussolini elected Prime Minister in Italy - Age 39
Stalin consolidates power in USSR - Age 44
Mao leads his "long march" - Age 41

One of the great things about living in the USA (at least I think it's great) is how little ANY American understands, as in comprehends, the forces of Communism or Fascism. We the People simply have no idea what these movements mean or, in truth, have any first hand experience with the societal forces that give them life and power. Fat, Happy and Free we experience these "movements" as abstractions and go on about our lives drinking sugar water and playing video games - we invented the Internet for Christ's sake. You want proof? Take a look at the two leaders of our political "revolution" in 2016.

Revolution?

On the "left" we've got a 74 year old grumpy uncle who can't keep his mouth shut about all the things that need fixing around the house. A man who's never worked an honest day in his life and because he lives in the land of milk and honey he's never had to. He's a Big Government blood sucker through and through (from cradle to grave as they say) and because this handyman only caries a hammer and sickle everything looks like a nail or something that needs to be harvested. If the Democrat party were not so ossified and corrupt there would be no opening for Bernie's brand of Constitutional Monarchy to slip in and ignite his simple minded army of supporters but, luckily for him, it is. And remember, Bernie is NOT a Democrat - he's just using the party infrastructure for his campaign.

On the "right" we've got a 69 year old billionaire who's planning to sink a ton of money into renovations and make the house shine like the sun. He's a workaholic and because he lives in the land of milk and honey he's been able to live LARGE with private planes and gold plated bathroom fixtures. He thinks and lives outside the box and most of his actions and statements are inscrutable to a gigantic class of pabulum fed paper shufflers who just want civility and calm. The Republican party is filled to the brim with plastic men who abhor disruption above all and simply can't abide this tasteless, braggadocios cad charging into their quiet club. And remember, DJT is not a Conservative - he's just using the party infrastructure for his campaign.

The deep thinkers are all flummoxed by a little bit of democracy and unpredictably. If there's violent confrontation at a pep rally they surmise we're entering a dark period in American history and, excuse them while they pee their pants, they fear things might never be the same. Carl Bernstein, one of those Americans who knows nothing about communism (even though he was a red diaper baby) or fascism, imagines a "new kind of American fascism" emerging from the dialectic. These are lunatic ravings from a man who fears his hyper-generous meal ticket is about to be taken away.

In my student days I studied film and television with keen interest and saw many documentaries on Hitlers rise in Germany. I don't remember seeing the Führer pulling a stunt like this at one of his rallies in any of those old black and white news reels but maybe this video only proves how "new" this American fascism actually is.

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.

Psycho Killer, qu'est-ce?

I came into this wicked world in the early 1960's and as a result I have born witness to America's 50 Years of Failure which includes the modern age of mass shootings by psychotic men who "go off" on a given day, for no reason at all (except "guns"), and kill scads of innocent bystanders. Back in August of 2019 a KOTCB blog post titled " Reciprocity City " explored a young  gunman  named Patrick Crusius  who drove 9 hours through the west Texas flatlands to shoot up El Paso, TX The KOTCB has commented on many of these shootings, bombings and knifings over the years -  The roots of the Boston Marathon Bombing ,  the Emanuel AME Church shooting ,  Syed Rizvan Farook and his bride Tashfeen Malik ,  Ft. Lauderdale Airport shooting ,  Nick Cruz lovesick Parkland shooting ,  the Iranian, PETA activist, Vegan Bodybuilder, YouTuber's attack on Google  and now this very oddly timed and placed "lone wolf" attack on Walmart shoppers. This list

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.
