Worse than Watergate

In the history of US political scandals my favorite is the "Whiskey Ring Scandal" for the name alone because there's something very romantic and menacing in the idea of a whiskey ring (whatever that is) which makes a reader put down his coffee cup and pick up the paper. Others, like the Iran-Contra Affair or "Crédit Mobilier Scandal" sound salacious, mysterious and foreign to the average news consumer who doesn't know what an Iranian Contra is and is suspicious of any word with a glyph in it. It must be said that the most appropriately named scandal of this, or any other, time is Watergate because a watergate is a sluice or floodgate that regulates (i.e. controls) the amount of water that flows from one place (like a swamp) into another (like a river or ocean). It is true that Watergate is also the name of a hideous piece of architecture housing apartments and professional offices on the banks of the Potomac River. The Democrats had a campaign HQ there in the 1970's that president Richard Nixon broke into and while he was rifling though the file cabinets a security guard captured him and brought him to justice. He lied about it (of course) but it was obvious from the surveillance video that the president was guilty so, in due course, he was compelled to resign from office. It was not the crime, but the cover up that did Nixon in and that's where the watergate comes into play because someone (or a team of people) actually have hands on responsibility for opening and closing the gate thereby governing the amount of water that flows through it. The watergate is a control point and the water, under normal conditions, flows in one direction which in the case of Washington DC is FROM the swamp TO the rivers and tributaries that nurture rest of the nation.

So when Legal expert Jonathan Turley is questioned by reporter Crystal Ball (no, I'm not making it up, that is her name) about the Michael Cohen plea bargaining and says, "The fact is this has some parallels to Nixon. You have the president's lawyer going south on the president. You have these sort of bombshell moments", I know exactly what he means. These "bombshells" are released through the watergate and manufactured to explode at various depths downstream to inflict damage on the body politic and cause civic strife. It's a coordinated and malicious attack on the POTUS orchestrated by the powers that be in Washington DC - what else is new? It's just like Watergate because all these plays have been just like Watergate since 1972 and weather you're talking about Billygate, Monicagate (what I like to call Staingate) or Pussygate the origin, execution and purpose has followed the same script. Find something (anything) that can be construed as "illegal" or immoral and build it up through the #FakeNews until it's time to release the bombshell and then scream like hell when the explosion goes off and hope that everyone else will start screaming too. Will it result in impeachment? Who cares? It's enough to cog up works and cause consternation in the victims psyche while beating down any voice stupid enough to defend the "guilty" politician in the crosshairs. It's worked like a charm for 40 years but I think we're gonna get a very Trumpian reality check this time and that's for one very good reason.


When WaPo trots out #NeverTrump swish Philip Allen Lacovara to claim that what Trump has done is worse than Watergate you know the watergate is broken and the normal ebb and flow is going in a very unusual direction. This GOP putz served as Leon Jaworski's beard during the absurd CIA coup after the '72 election and gave the patina of bipartisanship to the special prosecutor's office. Now take a close look at this authority and tell me you're buying any of this malarky.


Yeah, it's worse than Watergate - by a long shot. Every corruption scandal is because Watergate was a cruel joke foisted upon the American people by scum who couldn't stand the fact that Nixon cleaned their clock in the 1972 election and were determined to run him out of office before he enacted his policy of New Federalism and handed off the presidency to Ronald Reagan in 1976. In their (the Deep State) twisted mind the Nixon presidency had to be ended so they opened up the watergate and submerged the country in raw sewage. I dare them to do it again. Impeach Trump for having sex with a Playboy Playmate of the Year and a Porn Star. Do it.

Blue Devils and Yellow Cowards

A few weeks ago Duke lost Coach K’s last game at Camron Indoor Stadium to the schools hated rival, North Carolina University, in an epic grudge match. It was an “ unacceptable ” finale for the maniacal ferret-faced competitor who created the 40 year dynastic Duke hoops program with 1,000+ wins and fists full of ACC and NCAA championships but for Tar Heels everywhere it was a day of retribution. Michael  William Krzyzewski, is a red-blooded All-American college basketball coach of Polish and Ukrainian descent who grew up in Chicago’s famous Ukrainian Village which is (or at least was) culturally very reminiscent of the Rus borderlands. That is to say that young S h-shef-ski   grew up as  far away (psychology) from Dixie as is possible while still living within the borders of the USA. That makes him the perfect choice to represent Duke University and the Yankee overachievers who emigrate to Durham for 4 years of education and networking before moving back to non-Southern civilization.

Who voted for this guy?

Who voted for this guy? It's been ten days since the results of the Maricopa County, Arizona ballot audit were released to the public and presented at a hearing held by the state senate. This exercise in democratic accountability had been going on for months and, if reports are to be believed, was completed well over a  month before the September 24th hearing where   overwhelming proof of an illegitimate election was presented to lawmakers . The audit showed multiple irregularities, fake ballots, duplicate counts, errors, omissions and egregious acts of sabotage and obstinance by the Maricopa County board of supervisors who did everything they could to withhold and destroy evidence of wrongdoing from the citizen sleuths. The misfeasance of Arizona's political leaders was clearly defined, shocking and (for some) beyond belief but somehow these facts were discovered, organized, packaged and suppressed for MONTHS by the Cyber Ninjas who were attempting to "get to the bottom&q

Mask Off

U.S. District Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle finally did it - after 14 months of mandatory masking by order of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) this capricious and ineffectual edict has been ruled unconstitutional and, it follows, illegal.  Since January 29, 2021 the CDC has prohibited citizens to travel without wearing a mask but the insanity actually started as far back as July 14, 2020 when " CDC calls on Americans to wear masks to prevent COVID-19 spread ." That's 643 days of stupidity folks - it covers the Kenosha Riots, the attempted kidnapping of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, the Fake 2020 Election, the 1/6 Save America March and Insurrection, Jo(((K)))e Brandon's phony Inauguration, Trump's 2nd Impeachment, a horrible year of pathetic "leadership" from every single elected official in Washington DC, a war in Eastern Europe - and NOW, at long last, a federal judge in Florida ends the mask tyranny with one simple ruling from her bench.
