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…

I've Got You Dumb Motherfuckers Eating Right Out Of My Hand

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 audience (he calls them "…

New York Values

“Global Reach :30” CME Group—Commercial Spot from VSA Partners on Vimeo.

Don't mind me, I'm just going to use the island of Manhattan as my own personal driving range. I'm  in the futures and derivatives game and you never know what's going to happen. "Opportunities aren't always obvious" as I like to say and they "drop in" unexpectedly.


Sometimes it works out great.

Other times...


And those poor souls with a lump on their head don't like the game or putting the driving range on top of the Pan Am building. Last nights election was a long par 5 for the Constitutional Monarchist in this years election and he shot a triple bogey. One of the reasons:
"Unsurprisingly, it was Bernie Sanders who won the vast majority of the anti-Wall-Street Democratic vote." New York Democrats are crazy, but a majority of them are not dumb (in truth, a lot of the dumb ones have emigrated to Vermont) so while they'll flirt with "revolution" wh…
