“The great debate will finally take place”

It is my opinion that no nation was more negatively impacted by The Great War (WW1) than France when the flower of French manhood was cut down in brutal trench warfare and the nation never fully recovered from this trauma. The KOTCB blog is a strong supporter of France and its magnificent culture including its storied colonial history. While many Americans think they "get" France it is proven over and over again that even the earnest Francophiles from America don't have the slightest idea why the country is so great. But yesterdays results from the election run-off shows the world the cold hard numbers and who's who in France and what makes the country so special. A 4 way split between Left-Right-Left-Right candidates each getting roughly 20% of the vote leaving that perplexing 20% known as "the undecided" voters controlling the fate of the nation. Eleven candidates enter and two emerge having won the approval of 1 in 5 voters respectively - meaning 60% of the country has to choose someone other than who they wanted to be president. The 20% vs. 20% grudge match needs to convince 51% of the 60% that were shut out that another candidate is the best and so France will finally get its Great Debate after 100 years of confusion, horror and decline. What's it gonna be?
  • A forced march into the globalist EU future lead by a 40 year old technocrat banker who's married to his school teacher.
  • A re-establishment of national sovereignty (and dare I say Greatness) lead by a 50 year old nepotistic Nationalist who's twice divorced and living with an Algerian Jew.
This should be one for the ages and I wouldn't place a bet on either "winner" because the French are inscrutable and almost ludicrously passionate about politics so who knows what they'll think of the debate? As crazy as France is, their socialism kind of works so you can't dismiss Macron even though he doesn't have a real political party or any solid organization backing him. Things are bad in France - the country has been ruled under a State of Emergency order since November 2015 - but if you know the long history of the country it's really not that bad comparatively. And even if it were horribly bad I don't think there's anything in France that's even remotely as bad as what we've got here in États Unis:

This crap is enough to make you sign up with ISIS (just kidding NSA, just kidding). It's absolutely enough to make you vote for Trump, but I don't think Le Pen has this kind of crisis broadcast on Canal+ to motivate the squishy voters in the suburbs to give her a go.

So we will see if the blood of the Gauls + Franks + Normands can rise once more in L'Hexagone and resuscitate the heart of Europe or if France will disappear beneath the ocean of history and it's waves of migration? It's a watershed election in that regard and I'll enjoy following it on the evening news. Vive la France!

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.

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

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.
