Right-wing Francophiles Unite!!!

Readers of the KOTCB blog already know that my admiration for Publius Decius Mus (AKA Michael Anton) couldn't get any higher and I believe his CRB article “ The Flight 93 Election ” and, especially, his " Restatement on Flight 93 ", which is the real money shot but almost never gets the attention afforded its set up, are two of the greatest polemics on the sorry state of American "Conservatism" in my lifetime (See KOTCB  The US Airways Flight 1549 Election (You're perfectly right) and  Decius drops the mic ). But Tuesday's article in the NYTimes " A National Security Aide’s Departing Wish: Cooking for the State Dinner " has elevated Anton, in my view, to demigod status and I think I now understand exactly why his words resonated so deeply in my soul: “I’m a rare thing in Washington conservative circles: a right-wing Francophile,” said Mr. Anton, who first served in the White House during the George W. Bush administration, when the Iraq wa

Mission Acomplished (Again)

It's Springtime here on my little patch of earth and that means the birds are chirping, the bees are flying and snakes are crawling out of their holes to slither around the garden. When it comes to bees, wasps, hornets, yellow-jackets and other stinging insects I zap their nests with highly toxic poison emitted from a spray can with a 15 foot strike range. There's no reason to get up close to these critters (a guy might get stung) and dousing their nest with foaming death rubs off on them and kills them slowly, mercilessly over time - it also sends a powerful message to other bees not to build nests near my home. As a general rule I've got nothing against bees and am perfectly content to let them live in the wild, doing their thing, and wouldn't spend any time romping through the forest looking for trouble or, in even my most ethereal flights of fancy, take it upon myself to change the nature of a bee. But, if there is a project at hand - say, a fence that needs mendi

Get ready Russia

Now, at long last, that we're on the brink of war with Russia after pussy-footing around the issue since 1945, it's probably a good time to take a long look at the Russian Collusion accusations leveled against Donald J Trump's campaign for president and the ongoing special council investigation of the same lead by former FBI chief Robert Mueller. It's not that our impending hot war with the Bear isn't more important (IT IS!!!) than an extra-constitutional dirt-dig that started May 17, 2017 (coming up on a year now) but these pressing events force one, long unasked, question to be answered - and I mean answered right now! To get to the question at hand I first want to review what's actually speculated upon in the #FakeNews media and broader commentariat across the fruited plain and that namely is this: That the Russian government installed Donald Trump as President of the United States by "hacking" the US election and that, as a result, Vladimir P

"Does one of us have to come out alive?"

Un-Green Nasim Maybe you've already forgotten about Nasim Aghdam - she was the Iranian, PETA activist, Vegan Bodybuilder and prolific YouTuber who strolled into the Streaming Media Giant's corporate office complex last week with her pistol and starting shooting people until she finally killed herself. I'm not bringing her up to grouse about #FakeNews media blackouts or downplaying of the story because it doesn't fit the pre-packaged narratives so popular where these mass shootings are concerned - that's true, but it happens every day in places all over the country where murder (often mass or multiple murders) are committed with impunity as far as the MSM megaphone is concerned. Why bitch about something as common as dirt when the real story is the same old story that's told every time someone commits an act of mass murder and that story is that no one had any idea that the perpetrator was even capable of doing what he (or in this case she) did. Example:  Fam
