"It's Alive!"

Oh no, the "American Experiment" is in danger of dying (or something) because, well, after two and a quarter centuries it's still in the experimental stage and the International Community (and their domestic compatriots) aren't sold on it's viability. For all the eternal skeptics of this "experiment" there is now proof - proof I tell you! - of its dismal failure in the personage of Donald J. Trump. He's "a guy who tears at the social fabric, who insults the office of the presidency by completely unprepared for it, who plays on bigotry and fear, who is the sort of demagogue our founders feared would upset the American experiment in self-government, well, that kind of guy, you just can’t support, even if it means a defeat" according to Founders expert David Brooks*. And sure, Brooks is a loser, but he's hardly a lone voice in the media sphere. Which begs the following questions: Have any of these worry-warts ever read the Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin? The speeches of Patrick Henry? Ever heard of that other famous New Yorker named Alexander Hamilton? These guys were not afraid of Trump, they were Trump! And they wrote a Constitution that would allow the Trumps of the world to prosper and, if need be, lead within the constraints of a limited government and Federalized civic authority maintained by State and local governments.

There have been two significant transformations since this "experiment" was initiated in in 1787. The first was the Lincoln atonement beginning in 1861 and the second was the FDR counter-revolution of 1932. From a broad historical perspective we're due for transformation number three and it's starting to look like we're going to get it.
Although polls give Clinton a solid advantage over Trump in a general election, many Democrats remain wary because of what one party strategist called “the unpredictability of Trump.” As one former member of Obama’s campaign team put it, “I feel like in some ways my brain has to think differently than it ever has.”
Sounds like the "experiment" is doing exactly what it's supposed to be doing.

*BTW - What would the Founders of this Nation have thought of a Government funded "news" program broadcast nationwide spewing out Federally approved propaganda to the citizenry?

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
