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.


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.

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

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

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
