Cocktail Cabal

Just over the DC line to avoid the local city government and taxes
I don't mean to pick on poor old E.J. Dionne Jr., the friendly and very ernest Democrat opinion writer who's lived his life scurrying around the labyrinth of the Administrative State and sipping cocktails with inside the beltway power players. He's not a Trump supporter, nor should he be - he must be dead set #NeverTrump including armed resistance if necessary because a Trump presidency would not only disrupt his lucrative livelihood and damper the ocean of money sloshing around the 495 kiddy pool that keeps the glorious cocktail parties well stocked with booze and hors d'oeuvres. For Dionne, Trump is an existential crisis that must be stopped and this Bostonian who makes his home on a tree lined Bethesda street inside the belt-way will do whatever it takes to destroy the Elvis from Queens. Politics is politics, but this is war.

But the other day E.J. did bring a smile to my face with his WaPo op-ed "Trump’s sour Virginia cocktail" with the mirthful tag line "The candidate is not someone Virginians would have over for drinks." Has anyone, on either side of the political aisle, illuminated the essential problem of the Trump candidacy more succinctly and profoundly than this carpetbagging New England jackass who no self respecting Virginian would have darken their door for a drink or otherwise? No. Not that this Massachusetts troll knows anything about Virginia cocktails because the state that invented the mint julep will drink some pretty unique concoctions depending on the time and place. And even if Virginians did dane to invite Donald J. Trump over for drinks there's a good chance he wouldn't accept the invitation because DJT DOSEN'T DRINK. He's an all business teetotaler who doesn't give a damn about slurping down whiskey and cramming his pie-hole full of shrimp cocktail, endive chips and brie cheese.


70+ years of beltway theft
The best part - the real cherry on top - is the "Virginian" E. J. Dionne suggests is the authoritative gentile voice of the Commonwealths GOP establishment, former state senator Russ Potts who all but sabotaged the Republican Gubernatorial candidate, Jerry Kilgore, in the 2005 election thereby lifting a smiling Tim Kaine (no Virginian) to high office which served as a stepping stone to the US Senate and now the VPOTUS.  And the verdict on Trump? “He doesn’t make the cut for a lot of reasons,” says the Winchester, VA based septuagenarian - NOCD, can't abide his rudeness and shoddy character.  Potts is "with Her" this year because... umm... er... Because he's a RINO squish who will do anything, and I mean anything, to protect and preserve the established order in DC and Richmond that keeps him and his associates feeding at the golden through. It has nothing to do with cocktails or Virginia or even Trump specifically, but it has everything to do with the collection and distribution of spoils that Russ Potts designed from his state senate seat and the E. J. Dionne advocates at every level of government from is plumb spot at The Washington Post.

It is disgraceful how these journalists and politicians will talk about every personal foible that Trump has - there are many - and sight them as disqualifying shortcomings while never getting around to speaking truthfully about the REAL reason they abhor the prospect of a Trump presidency. The very real (and legitimate) fear that Trump will tear down the system that they've devised to supply themselves with power, treasure and influence well beyond their intrinsic value and worthiness. The herd of GOP lemmings (politicians, pundits and plutocrats) made from the same stuff as Russ Potts who are leaping into the Hitlery camp is a testament to this fear - and a testament to nothing but fear.

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
