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.

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.

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.

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.
