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 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…
