How to Make America Great Again

through the looking glass
This is how it's done.

Trump SOU was strong and I have to say that watching the POTUS announced to the joint session by the Sargent at Arms and seeing the Elvis from Queens walk into the chamber left me momentarily shocked and (still) in awe. Dude, that's Trump! Donald Trump is the President of the United States of America!!! Are you kidding me?

Many high points but I loved the most how he took the "Dreamers" language away from the Dems and will now beat them over the head with it forever. Truly a savant when it comes to media manipulation and branding - The journalists who cover this stuff are baffled and shellshocked because whatever narrative they create to defeat him will, at exactly the right moment, get ripped from their very own lips and crammed back down their throat. Examples - #FakeNews, Steve Bannon, Sexual Misconduct, Personal Wealth, The Wall, Bad Language, Racism, Russia, Rule of Law, Abortion = feminism, Black unemployment, Homophobia - on this last one I can’t help but think back on a moment that blew my mind and woke me, as if I wasn’t already woke, to Trumps cunning and ruthlessness. It was a Today Show interview that Matt Lauer (of all people) was performing (there’s no other word for it) on The Donald and trying to trip him up, smear him, cause controversy during the election campaign - must have been summer because the whole family, Melania and the kids were part of the interview outside in Rock Center. Controversy swirled about the North Carolina law banning tranny’s from using the girls bathroom and Matt must have thought he was going to strike gold by asking the Elvis from Queens what he thought of the issue. Trump brushed it off saying something to the effect, “I think people should be allowed to go wherever they want to go.” i.e. I’m not running for president to decide the transgender bathroom issue and as far as I’m concerned its a ginned up controversy by activists and the press used to smear Christians and other conservatives as bigots (which Trump is not). Matt L. couldn’t let it go, thinking that Trump's foot was firmly in the trap, he pressed the nominee asking, “So if Caitlyn Jenner were to walk into Trump tower today and ask to use the women’s bathroom you’d have no problem with that?” And Trump tossed it right back in his face - “No problem at all, people should go where they feel comfortable.” I’m thinking to myself, if Bruce Jenner walked into Trump Tower and asked to use the bathroom, Trump would wisk him/her up to the penthouse in his private elevator so that (s)he might sit upon the proprietors golden throne and relax. Trump couldn’t care less and nobody else cares either except for these journalists with a hidden agenda. Lauer was flummoxed and didn’t know what to say - are you going to keep beating this dead horse? Did DJT take a hit among his NC base for not giving a shit about the bathroom controversy? - no. He won the state on Nov 8th and the rest is history - Trump's DOJ dropped all these transgender inspired federal regulations and law suites and the “problem” is solved.

He does it to them over and over and over again - still, they never learn. They never learn anything, which is what you can count on - it's how you Make America Great Again.

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…
