The Aries Project 2021

50 years ago Woody Allen made a movie titled “Sleeper” which was pretty funny and managed to cram  profound observations about human nature and revolution into a slapstick dixieland dystopia. I’m not going to call the film prescient or visionary because I believe almost all science-fiction is simply a reflection of the time it is created and NOT the dates chronicled in the book or movie (in this case, the year 2173). The formulation goes something like this : 1948 was 1984, 1984 was Neuromancer, 1999 was the Matrix, etc*. so that makes Sleeper the Nixon Presidency. About 2/3 of the way through the film we learn that "The Leader" has been successfully blown up in a terrorist attack 10 months ago and the nation has been flying blind for the better part of a year. We the People are blissfully unaware of this crisis and simply live as "normal" eating at McDonald's, having our robots do our work and taking a well deserved break in the orgasmatron. The Aries Project is a top secret conspiracy formulated by government scientists to clone a “new” Leader (resurrected) from the cells of his nose recovered from the explosion left by the rebel assassins. 

It was a good plan. It needed to be done. Nixon was symbolically “blown up” by Watergate but, at the time, the American people were still unaware that he was vaporized by rebel forces deep in the Intelligence Community. There might have been a few DC technocrats in 1973 attempting to salvage Tricky Dick after the attack but rebel's like Woody Allen stumbled and bumbled our media into a successful “Constitutional Crisis” and flattened Richard Millhouse Nixon like a pancake. 

Nostalgic and yesteryear as it is, there are moments in this comedy that ring as true (more true) today than they did five decades ago when they first unspooled on the silver screen. One such scene is when the ingénue Luna (Diane Keaton) recites her new poem about a butterfly transforming into a caterpillar to her dandy companion and, after praising her verse, he gently points out that in nature it is the caterpillar that becomes a butterfly. Luna completely flips out and has a angry tirade explaining that she simply “hates being wrong” and can’t stand the feeling of error regardless of the actual truth of the matter. Is this not the default reaction of todays NPC’s when confronted with a basic natural truth?

  • The cars are white blobs of self driving poop.
  • The food is genetically engineered garbage.
  • The cops dress in body armor and helmets.
  • The universities give degrees in Cosmological Sexual Technique in Poetry
You see, things haven't really changed for the better since 1973 and, to be brutally honest, most everything has devolved into a much worse situation than Woody's 2173 Spoof Oddity predicted. The great Jewish-American auteur has done nothing to help and not just a little bit of harm along the way.

Luna Schlosser: Oh, I see. You don't believe in science, and you also don't believe that political systems work, and you don't believe in God, huh?
Miles Monroe: Right.
Luna Schlosser: So then, what do you believe in?
Miles Monroe: Sex and death - two things that come once in a lifetime... but at least after death, you're not nauseous.

Hardy Har Har. Look where that got us.

How did I get here?

Back in November 2020 the KOTCB blog pointed out in a post titled No Step On Snek that there was no victory for anyone on November 3rd because the leadership of the USA effectively committed suicide. They didn't want to, but Trump gave them no choice because they simply couldn't let him win and by installing Jo(((k)))e Biden as POTUS it became clear that our "elections" are fake and gay. All the efforts by well-meaning Patriots to "get to the bottom" of election fraud for Trump also expose the election fraud for everyone else on Capitol Hill and every State Government too. They're ALL in on it and that's why it is so horribly destructive to the republic. Does anyone think Kamala Harris could get elected to anything in a free and fair election? Now she finds herself one lethargic heartbeat away from the Oval Office and only because her fellow Senators (D&R), DOJ Lawyers, SCOTUS liars and political party hacks stuck a shotgun in our countries mouth and pulled the trigger.

Science-Fiction is not the future; it's the present.

It's going to take a few more months (maybe years) for this fact to sink into the thick hole-filled heads of rank 'n file citizens and, let's face it, for many people it really doesn't matter because they had no investment in the country before Nov. 3rd. But slowly, day by day, events of the world will unfold in a way that proves my point and those of us who do did care about the United States of America, it's history, traditions, way of life and soul are going to have to find a way to survive in the new reality.
The Leader is a projected image on the screen with no more substance than a 50 year old movie that was released about the same time Jo(((k)))e Biden got tapped by the bankers and oligarchs of Delaware to "represent" their interests in Washington DC. He's not really there and no Aries Project can bring him back to life - we wouldn't want him even if it could. The sovereignty of the American citizen is vanishing fast and Pax Americana is circling the drain - that fact is as plane as the nose on his face.

*Note: The KOTCB blog has claimed that 2020 is Zardoz since July of that year - see You Are Here. This is obviously a break with the KOTCB axiom on Sci-fi timelines but... that's the way it goes.

Which Way, Western Man?

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 view

The 4th Estate "does not know"

Last night Jim Acosta sat down for an interview with Larry Sabato at a national symposium series presented by the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics titled “Democracy in Perilous Times.” The evening’s topic was “ The Fourth Estate: Enemy of the People? ” and the crowd was warmly receptive of Acosta’s message which, boiled down to its essence, is that Donald Trump is a liar and he’s making life dangerous for reporters. Sabato introduced Acosta to the audience as Enemy #1 which drew mirthful laughter from the auditorium and then presented a short video montage of President Trump and his deplorable rubes insulting the reporter on many occasions over the past two years. This was all a set up for his first question which was, “how do you do your Job?” Acosta said the he accomplishes his duties by maintaining focus, reporting the story and telling the truth but acknowledged that it is difficult when the White House erodes the peoples faith in the press by bullying reporters.

A Apolitical Blues

Well my telephone was ringing, and they told me it was chairman Mao. You got to tell him anything 'cause I just don't want to talk to him now. According to the brilliant troubadour Lowell George the Apolitical Blues are " the meanest blues of all" and who am I to disagree with this soul man now after all these years of living by his maxim.  I first heard the song bursting from the 1972 vinyl of Little Feat's Alt-Rock-Country masterpiece "Sailin' Shoes" in the second story bedroom of my friend John's older brother Edie who, being about 3 years our senior, was instructing us on the importance of good music. This was circa 1975 and a formative time for my musical taste and overall aesthetic which, for better or worse, infuses every aspect of my existence including the KOTCB blog so a debt is owed this unforgettable "older brother" now that  he has shuffled off this mortal coil  and left us with smoky memories.
