Lose This Skin Mika


I've been tempted to post something on the KOTCB blog since the day the Elvis from Queens tweeted about Mika's bleeding face and the ensuing media meltdown flooded the broadcast airways and Internet with gunk. But every frigg'n day @POTUS lets loose another tweet or 2 that usurps whatever I was going to say the day before so I've just been waiting and watching and loving every minute of it. With Sunday's napalm strike he might have finally brought them to their knees - but there's always tomorrow.
The latest tweet was immediately condemned by journalists, who said Trump seemed to be promoting physical violence against the media, while a Republican lawmaker said the president was trying to "weaponize distrust" through his postings.
"Promoting physical violence" or a tactic to "weaponize distrust" don't explain it folks - this is total war waged by a pachyderm with old, scared hide who's been beaten and whipped for so many years an impenetrable scartcissue has formed on his thick back. His opponents are preening, pampered girlymen who simply can't believe that someone is allowed to make fun of them this ruthlessly.  Not much to add to a previous KOTCB post on the subject about Morning Joe and Mika or others - this blog is in complete alignment with Trump's tweets.

They are a distraction, but not a bad distraction - they are a great distractions. The news media is consumed by these tweets but Trump and his team are busy pushing legislation, tightening the border, building a better jobs environment, slashing regulation and winning special elections. The MSM is not covering any of these things in any meaningful way because they're hiding behind their Twitter Wall praying that Trump doesn't smash them with another tweet. He's beating them at their own game and they're simply too stupid to realize it. Even the "voice of reason" Conservatives are starting to get it and when a big brain like Victor Davis Hanson starts writing things like "perhaps the president knows something I don’t" then you know that Trump is nearing victory in this scorched earth campaign.

For years (decades actually) I have lamented the fact that no one like the Founders of the American nation could ever get elected in the contemporary United States of America. My melancholy about this fact would be acute on holidays like Independence Day (otherwise known as the 4th of July) because the stark contrast between the men who signed the Declaration of Independence THEN and the wolves who pilfer its promise (their inheritance) NOW is so maddening and unfair. But Donald J Trump proved me wrong - dead wrong. It's Alive people, it's alive and God willing it will live on and find glory yet unimagined. Like a snake it sheds its skin and leaves the residue to rot while it moves on to do its thing.

God Bless America!

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

The 4th Estate "does not know"

Last night Jim Acosta sat down for an interview with Larry Sabato at a national symposium series presented by the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics titled “Democracy in Perilous Times.” The evening’s topic was “ The Fourth Estate: Enemy of the People? ” and the crowd was warmly receptive of Acosta’s message which, boiled down to its essence, is that Donald Trump is a liar and he’s making life dangerous for reporters. Sabato introduced Acosta to the audience as Enemy #1 which drew mirthful laughter from the auditorium and then presented a short video montage of President Trump and his deplorable rubes insulting the reporter on many occasions over the past two years. This was all a set up for his first question which was, “how do you do your Job?” Acosta said the he accomplishes his duties by maintaining focus, reporting the story and telling the truth but acknowledged that it is difficult when the White House erodes the peoples faith in the press by bullying reporters.

A Apolitical Blues

Well my telephone was ringing, and they told me it was chairman Mao. You got to tell him anything 'cause I just don't want to talk to him now. According to the brilliant troubadour Lowell George the Apolitical Blues are " the meanest blues of all" and who am I to disagree with this soul man now after all these years of living by his maxim.  I first heard the song bursting from the 1972 vinyl of Little Feat's Alt-Rock-Country masterpiece "Sailin' Shoes" in the second story bedroom of my friend John's older brother Edie who, being about 3 years our senior, was instructing us on the importance of good music. This was circa 1975 and a formative time for my musical taste and overall aesthetic which, for better or worse, infuses every aspect of my existence including the KOTCB blog so a debt is owed this unforgettable "older brother" now that  he has shuffled off this mortal coil  and left us with smoky memories.
