This will be an unusual statement in at least a couple ways

This will be an unusual statement in at least a couple ways. First, I am going to include more detail about our process than I ordinarily would, because I think the American people deserve those details in a case of intense public interest. Second, I have not coordinated or reviewed this statement in any way with the Department of Justice or any other part of the government. They do not know what I am about to say.
  1. "Detail about our process" because unless you understand the process you'll never believe what's going to come next.
  2. The DOJ nor anyone in the Executive Branch has any idea that I'm about to do this because I don't trust them.
Okay, that's two, or a couple of ways, but FBI Director James B. Comey said his statement today on the Investigation of Secretary Hillary Clinton’s Use of a Personal E-Mail System was going to be interesting in at least a couple of ways - implying that it would be interesting in more ways than just two. What else is interesting about it?

3. Some time in the next 10 days I'm going to drop the hammer on the Clinton Foundation and just like today nobody is going to see it coming. Also, all the folks who are lauding me today will hate me and all the people who are hating me today will laud me because they're all corrupt scum.

Oh yeh, that's right people, there are two FBI criminal investigations going on and only one of them wrapped up today with a "why bother" brush off. Why bother with the email server? The Clinton machine would just focus all the attention on it and deny, deny, deny until people get frustrated and bored with the subject. And they'd focus only on the email server (servers actually - turns out there were a few of them) and use it as a straw man to distract from the big red elephant in the room - the criminal collusion between the State Dept. and the Clinton Foundation. Forget the email server - let's clear the table and get ready for a big slab of red meat that everyone can chew over. It's coming... Any day now.

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 viewershi…

The Democracy Quirk

Let it be said that Politico is one of the most worthless web sites with clout on the internet - it's like the Washington Post after a night of hard drinking in the Georgetown bars that passed out on a friends couch. Predictable and stupid at the same time - Also, the editors appear to despise democracy as a political science and as practiced here in the USA. Their latest "explanation" for the Trump phenomenon takes aim at the voters and their knowing ignorance which can be easily explained by the Dunning-Kruger Effect. The article written by shrink/educator David Dunning illuminates a big, glaring problem in any democracy, and that is, "we all run the risk of being too ill-informed to notice when our own favored candidates or national leaders make catastrophic misjudgments." Shit, now you tell us, for surely this is not a problem unique to 2016 and probably was in effect in 2000 and 1980 and 1968 and so on...
But as a psychologist who has studied human behavi…

Running Fence 2

You probably know that the Congress (specifically the Senate) and the POTUS are at loggerheads over Federal funding for the Big Beautiful Wall to be built along the US southern boarder. The reasons for this impasse are long and complex so a quick review of how we got here might be in order.

The Elvis from Queens glided down the escalator at Trump Tower (corner of 57th & 5th) and declared to America and the World that he intended to build A Great Wall across the southern boarder when he became POTUS because this alternate speech was never going to happen (KOTCB Alternate Universe 06/15/2015)A few weeks later candidate Trump was presented with a big fat brick of pain and suffering that served as the cornerstone of his campaign (KOTCB Dirty Sanchez)The physical Wall served as a curative slap in the face of the DC establishment who had, over the years, constructed an elaborate Folly Wall in place of the real thing (KOTCB Decius drops the mic)The idea of the Big Beautiful Wall began to…
