Children of the same foul spirit

Something is missing

I didn't watch any of the 9/11 commemorative speeches or participate in the remembrance of the terror attack that occurred 20 years ago today. I have changed so much from that day to this as to make this tragic event a portal bringing me face to face with an enthusiastic patriotic sap who swallowed the official narrative of events hook, line and sinker - I can hardly stand to look at him.

He was sitting in his office cube in Mid-town Manhattan having just dropped his 5 year old daughter off for her first day at school. A young staffer ran into the room shouting about a plane flying into the World Trade Center and they all waved him away saying "get back to work kid, it's just a plane" thinking that it must have been a single engine Cessna that clipped a sky scraper. About 15 minutes later the kid came sprinting back into the room yelling, "a second plane had hit the towers" and there was a long pause in that busy hive of activity. He watched the first tower collapse, grabbed the kid by the arm and headed down to the corner of 57th & Madison and hopped on a northbound bus. It was quiet as he glided up the Avenue past the beautiful couture shops and million dollar apartments but then an older woman burst into tears and sobbed until he debarked on 79th. Strolling across the park the fighter jets were circling the island and it was a beautiful late summer day but in an hour a mob of dust covered zombies would be marching their way north and looking for a way out. He was safe in his apartment with his wife and children watching the FakeNews pump out hours of, what turned out to be, bullshit and that was the extent of his crisis.

I don't mean to downplay the attacks and the devastating toll it took on many families - I knew some and I feel for them. I wasn't one of them and I'm not going to pretend that I was or make declarations on the importance of the attack - how the world changed - how terror came home - blah, blah, blah.

We are all Israelis now” said Robert Tracinski - remember

So you'll understand my disdain when I read that the dude who was in charge on the day these towers, the Pentagon and some field in Pennsylvania (that was supposed to be the US Capitol) got blown up is lecturing me about my determination to defile national symbols. in 2001 I supported pluralism, human life and national symbols 100% and over the past 20 years I learned that George W. Bush and all the Conservative Inc. funders of the devious GOP don't really support any of it.

So sad and so true! We have learned so much in the last 20 years about our government and all it's devious ways.

No Step On Snek

On The 2020 Election: In an elemental way We the People of the United States lost because Trump, and the MAGA movement he champions, forced the Deep State/Administrative State/New World Order (whatever you want to call it) and its enablers in Corporate America - Finance/FakeNews/Big Tech - to declare their sovereignty and steal our election in the most obvious way possible. The brazenness and " in yo face " shamelessness of the crime is a big part of its effectiveness and loudly proclaims an intent to demoralize and defeat the America First ideology which actually won the highest number of votes in this nation's history. It wasn't even close and that was made clear when key cities in 5 or 6 swing states declared they would pause (stop) counting(?!) votes until all the rural districts had submitted results allowing the big city machines to manufacture the ballots required to put Jo(((k)))e Biden in the lead. NPC's and Normies don't get too critical of process a

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

@POTUS hasn’t Tweeted

What happened to the 11,000 tweets? Twitter has conducted a "purge" of "conservative" voices from its "platform" and that includes the account of one Donald J Trump who happens to be the President of the United States of America. To which I say GOOD! Let's take it from the top. A purge (the bad kind) does not include getting kicked off a social network. If that's such a bad thing then the problem is with the society and not the network. Purges are when police officers bust down your door at 3AM, grab you and drive out to some empty field where they shoot you in the head and then tossed your limp body in a mass grave. A conservative is someone like Mitt Romney or these tools at the Lincoln Project who are free to post whatever lies or inflammatory rhetoric they want on Twitter. Twitter has no hatred for “conservatives” or Republicans as far as that goes and I don't think a single member of Congress or the political establishment has been "p
