Je Suis #MAGABOMBER


I’m not actually a mad bomber but I am a Trump supporter and, for several years, I drove a white van which is a great way to roll by my estimation and should be lauded - not insulted. Easing into the captain’s seat of your van is like leaning back in an Archie Bunker wingback where you can watch the world pass by from the comfort of your living room which is exactly what a proper Van is but with wheels. Mine was an F-150 conversion with a fold down bed in the back and awesome sound system, TV and PS2 game console + blinds and curtains to afford privacy from the outside insanity of the open road. A Shagg’n Wagon ain’t for everybody, but for those who’ve navigated America’s highways and byways in the spacious comfort of a portable living room there really is no going back to the claustrophobic mobile coffin of an Acura, Torus or (even) a BMW. So it might be partisan pigheadedness or just a brotherhood of the road but I’m still not buying this crazy bomber Cesar Sayoc story which looks to me, for all the world, like a classic psych-ops play from the IC manual in Langley. I know it’s just my gut, but something doesn’t smell right about it and I refuse to even put in my mouth much less swallow.

Too many “whys” with no good answers like:
  1. Why now? 2 weeks out from the mid-terms and Cesar starts sending bombs? Really? Some of these motherfuckers deserve to have been blown up years ago so why now?
  2. How could a man be so meticulous in adorning his van be so incompetent in making bombs?
  3. Why do we even know about these bombs in the first place? Who’s leaking the info about the bombs and why are they doing it? A lot of information was splashed on TV screens (photos of the bombs, packaging, etc.) considering the fact that it was an ongoing investigation which is unusual, right?
I claim to understand a bombers mind in that the KOTCB blog is, if nothing else, a collection of lighthearted psychological thought bombs targeting clowns like the Clintons, the Obama’s, Robert DeNero and the like with no particular skill and no idea if they’ll ever actually work (though mine are designed to “go off”). So I think I know what I’m talking about when I say that Cesar Sayoc was probably as surprised to learn he was the mad bomber in the news as I was but it’s not like he can plead innocence with a record like his and that’s the whole point of using someone like him for a black hat operation.

Liberal Liars
It reminds me of the sad case of Nakoula Basseley Nakoula (AKA Sam Bacile) the creator of a crudely produced video titled "Innocence of Muslims" which hit YouTube in July of 2012 with zero impact but was mysteriously dubbed into Ariabic in the ensuing months and re-released in September just before long planned 9/11 protests erupted across the Arab world in response to the Arab Spring/Arab Winter which had inflamed religious wars between Sunni and Shia Muslims. Some folks still remember the Benghazi attack from that 9/11/2012 but most people have forgotten the breached walls of the US embassy in Egypt or the rioting at consulates and other American outposts throughout the Middle East and Asia all of which was blamed on poor Nakoula and his video. This ruse was perpetrated by the Obama administration and HRC's State Dept. and the #FakeNews scum carried the black water for months until the 2012 presidential election was in the bag and their team won. Susan Rice went on every Sunday news show and promoted this preposterous straw man video which every "journalist" swallowed hook, line and sinker and HRC even recorded a video apology for Americas first amendment rights to the Muslim world. Nakoula was arrested (no bail) and put in prison for a year - not that anyone was interested in hearing his side of the story anyway - until it all blew over and voters had time to forget... forget... forget.

I didn't forget. And when "Michael Moore Reveals Video of Bomb Suspect Amid Angry Crowd at Trump Rally" I remember all over again. Michael Moore, the sebaceous troll who's always sporting a Mich. State Spartans cap, just happened to find footage of Cesar the MAGABomber on his 1000 hours of B Roll stored in some digital landfill in his office. Call me a skeptic if you must but I'd rather be skeptical than stupid.

In his Instagram post, Moore explained he sent a crew that included producer Basel Hamden and longtime collaborator Eric Weinrib to the rally, which took place in the month following Trump's inauguration, not to film Trump himself but to capture footage of the crowds he attracts in order to understand "our fellow Americans, lost souls full of anger and possible violence, easily fed a pile of lies so large and toxic that we wondered if there would ever be a chance that we could bring them back from the Dark Side.”

Ah yes, the "pile of lies" grows larger by the hour - but who is to "bring us back from the Dark Side" if we must rely on even bigger liars than the liars that are lying to us already?

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…
