At Home He’s A Tourist

"The Indian smiles, he thinks that the cowboy is his friend. The cowboy smiles, he is glad the Indian is fooled. Now he can exploit him."

Chief's of Staff and their puppets

The lads from Leeds that made up Gang of Four and released the 1979 LP titled "entertainment!" (note the exclamation point) were crypto commie art students and hipsters (before there were hipsters) in the pre-Thatcher British mode. As this blog has pointed out on previous occasions it is often "men of the Left" who blurt out the truth and strike a chord even when their intention is diametrically opposed to truth telling. It all comes down to a sly bit of Agitprop plastered on the cover of the album with shots of an Indian (the Native American kind) and a Cowboy shaking hands and the words - "The Indian smiles, he thinks that the cowboy is his friend. The cowboy smiles, he is glad the Indian is fooled. Now he can exploit him." Very clever but the key to the riddle is the last sentence which does not define who is "he" and who is "him" so we must assume that both parties are exploiting each other - or, at least, that's how I read it.

"The Squad" have been making waves in DC, especially since they ran the good ship USSA into the Trump iceberg last Sunday, but this is a much bigger fight than having Daddy send these girls to their room to think about their behavior and correct it. They might come around but the only reason he had to get involved is because they don't listen to their mother and are treating her with disrespect. Why don't they obey Nancy P. and follow instructions? Because their boyfriends - those no good meddling fools who only want one thing (and one thing only) are whispering lies and fantasies in the girls ear and leading off the garden path. These kids need a chaperone but that's so old fashioned and, to be honest, Mommy has no one to blame but herself. Bad parenting. Bad examples. Bad ideas. And now the girls are almost lost so Daddy has brought down the law and yelled at them. So sad. It makes them so angry. He can't tell them what to do!!!

So who IS responsible for all the vitriol and anger? Sarah Groh, Saikat Chakrabarti, Connor McNutt and Ryan Anderson - that's who.

  1. Ayanna Pressley - Masshole staff (almost all female) Sarah Groh, Chief of Staff married to a guy named Stockless: "Brian proposed in the middle of the Boston Common after presenting Sarah with a picture of President Obama and the First Lady on their wedding day (the couple first met during the 2008 election)."
  2. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez chief of staff is Saikat Chakrabarti - long knives are out for him
  3. Ilhan Omar - Connor McNutt chief of staff - yeah, he's the problem but... Let's not forget the rest of the staff: The Center for American Progress’s Jeremy Slevin will serve as both communications director and strategist for Omar. Slevin’s current job at the Center for American progress is that of Director of Antipoverty Advocacy. He has experience with the Fifth District as he was Keith Ellison’s communications director. Omar is succeeding Ellison who is now Minnesota’s Attorney General-elect.
  4. Rashida Tlaib - Chief of Staff Ryan Anderson: He has a BA in American, United States studies and civilization from George Washington University.

These are the people running the puppet show. These are the enemies of America and, unfortunately, if DJT sent the Congresswomen in "The Squad" back where they came from these scum would just find another "Indian" to exploit. The rot that brings a Ilhan Omar to the surface and bestows her with legislative power is much deeper and broader than the Somali community in Minnesota's 5th District. It goes straight to the top of the DNC and the oligarchs who run it, fund it and green-light prospective candidates to represent the party. These are the folks who need to get their minds right and understand something fundamental and powerful in American politics.

"Send Her Back"

Last Sunday Trump suggested that America hating immigrants (and children of immigrants) should go back to where they came from and fix the countries they fled (or their parents fled) to find a better life in the USA. If they DON'T want to do that (which they don't) then they should shut up with the hate and start appreciating the United States of America, our Flag, our Pledge of Allegiance, our noble history and all the other qualities that make it the greatest country on earth. Free to Leave - don't let the door hit your fat ass on the way out (especially you Tliab) or Free to Stay if you start acting like American citizens who love their country. There was the predictable reaction by the #FakeNews Media and the Democrats and what had been Trump's Free to Leave became America's "Send Her Back" by Wednesday night. Even The Bulkwark seemed to get the magnitude of the change of heart.

If you think about it, the chant was more wretched even than Trump’s own despicable attacks against Omar and her cohorts. At least Trump was merely urging Omar and her colleagues to leave of their own accord. The North Carolina crowd sounded thirsty for them to be thrown onto a trans-Atlantic barge in a sack.

The people of North Carolina are feeling like tourists in their own home. You can like that reality (like Bill Kristol) or you can dislike it like the throngs of spontaneous chanters at the Trump Rally this week but one thing you can't do is deny that reality.

At home he feels like a tourist
He fills his head with culture
He gives himself an ulcer

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…
