The Most Un-American Man In America

The Federalist Society has been a stalwart partner in Conservative Inc. for decades and along with the Heritage Foundation, the American Enterprise Institute they've burned through a lot of donor money playing the policy rationalization game and legitimizing the felonious US government. Last week they held a February boondoggle at a Disney World resort in Lake Buena Vista, FL and invited former VP Mike Pence to kick-off the festivities with a keynote stemwinder. At the podium with a silhouette of James Madison (the Federalist Society's logo) hovering behind him this dishonorable coward continued his monotonous shameful journey in culpability that will smear the Pence name forever. If you think that's a harsh review I'll remind you that the KOTCB blog:

Why? Because Pence has always professed his support for the document that James Madison constructed and believed in the republican principles delineated in that US Constitution. As a member of Congress he voted against the 2008 Bank Bailouts and he was a solid Governor for Indiana who navigated the various oligarchs that fund the national GOP. He stood beside Trump once he accepted the VP role and didn't abandon him late in the 2016 campaign which showed grit and loyalty - especially when EVERY cuckservative in DC was promising to destroy his political carrier when this Make America Great Again fad lost its novelty. You would think, after having seen Congress from the inside and out, after being labeled a homophobe by the Bush cabal, after all the calumny, threats and underhanded criminality committed by these swamp critter motherfuckers in the 2016 campaign that a self-respecting man would get angry and, presented with a once in a millennia opportunity to exact revenge upon his oppressors, grab the flaming sword of righteousness and chop their goddamn heads off.

What a disappointment.


It takes a while for Mike to get to the point but eventually he gives the FakeNews their headline:
But just replaying the money shot on all media outlets ignores the foreplay that brought the crowd of constitutional conservative lawyers to climax. He starts off nice and slow with some time tested rhetorical boilerplate like, "I'm a Christian, Conservative and Republican in that order" and poaches a joke from the Gipper which is, through Pence's voice and continence, a terrifying tale of carnage and martial law. Next he talks about his four years of MAGA success with a nod to the SCOTUS appointments, the military spending, tax cuts and deregulation while ignoring the failed Obamacare repeal and that imaginary Big Beautiful Wall of Voodoo snaking along the southern boarder. Moving on he laments the mercurial nature of politics which has seen all those good policies reversed because he allowed bad Jo(((k)))e Brandon to become POTUS and "unleash a tidal wave of left-wing policies" that gave us mass-illegal immigration, Trillions of dollars in debt, inflation, high energy, crime, vaccine mandates and the loss of personal liberty. Not for nothing but every deprivation that has been visited upon the good and decent American citizen was caused by one stupid, pig-headed Irish-American and his name is NOT Joe Biden.

After 15 minutes of pontification on this conventional GOP agenda Mr. Pence starts waxing about teaming up with the Federalist Society to support lawfare efforts to preserve or limit freedom with one eye on our sacred oaths and another on the US Constitution. Stroking these lawyers like a seasoned pro he rolls out Ronald Regan's bible, Antonin Scalia's jurisprudence and the Capitol police thwarting the 1/6 insurrection - the excitement is building (I mean it's getting hot at the Disney's Yacht and Beach Club Resorts). He notes that Article 2 assigns individual states with the responsibility of running their elections and Congress has no power to anything other than read the results and tally the numbers - I think we can all agree that Congress would never meddle in a states business without Constitutional sanction, right? 

Then the former Vice President ejaculates on their face:

“Our Founders were deeply suspicious of consolidated power in the nation’s capital and were rightly concerned with foreign interference if presidential elections were decided in the capital. But there are those in our party who believe that as the presiding officer over the joint session of Congress, I possessed unilateral authority to reject electoral college votes. And I heard this week, President Trump said I had the right to ‘overturn the election’. President Trump is wrong…I had no right to overturn the election.”

Cleaning up the mess

The Founders of the USA were suspicious of consolidated power in the nations capitol AND in the various state capitols. They were particularly concerned with what they called faction but what we, in our time, call special interests or cabals or the Deep State. These factions were (and are) foreign and domestic in origin and their influence is corrosive to every form of popular government. Don't just take my word for it, read James Madison's persuasive argument in Federalist Papers No. 10 where he diagnoses the problem and the solution.

"It is in vain to say that enlightened statesmen will be able to adjust these clashing interests, and render them all subservient to the public good. Enlightened statesmen will not always be at the helm. Nor, in many cases, can such an adjustment be made at all without taking into view indirect and remote considerations, which will rarely prevail over the immediate interest which one party may find in disregarding the rights of another or the good of the whole.

The inference to which we are brought is, that the CAUSES of faction cannot be removed, and that relief is only to be sought in the means of controlling its EFFECTS.

If a faction consists of less than a majority, relief is supplied by the republican principle, which enables the majority to defeat its sinister views by regular vote. It may clog the administration, it may convulse the society; but it will be unable to execute and mask its violence under the forms of the Constitution. When a majority is included in a faction, the form of popular government, on the other hand, enables it to sacrifice to its ruling passion or interest both the public good and the rights of other citizens. To secure the public good and private rights against the danger of such a faction, and at the same time to preserve the spirit and the form of popular government, is then the great object to which our inquiries are directed. Let me add that it is the great desideratum by which this form of government can be rescued from the opprobrium under which it has so long labored, and be recommended to the esteem and adoption of mankind."

Here Madison makes the point that sinister minority groups comprising the Administrative State and the corporate parasites conspiring with those groups can be defeated in a republic by "regular vote" which might muck up the works but it will "preserve the spirit and form of popular government." He also makes a plea to his readers - "the great desideratum" - that Mike Pence and the room full of "Federalist" lawyers should contemplate because it justifies the core purpose driving the entire 1787 Federalist enterprise.  The creation of the federal government was designed as a stabilizing force to combat the effects of faction that had already infected the fledgling states on the North American coasts and was condemning popular government (in any form) to "opprobrium" at home and abroad. So while the Founders distrusted the idea of consolidated power they understood that this was already occurring in every State House and without institutional authority and an architecture of republican government all they had fought for would degenerate into a collection of waring states ruled by faction. "The CAUSES of faction cannot be removed" so the United States of America was created by the States to serve as "the means of controlling its EFFECTS." This oversight of a corrupt States inevitable illegality resulting from factional criminality is why they methodically count the electoral votes on Capitol Hill and its why the Vice President has the final word on the legitimacy of those votes.

Mike Pence knows this, as do all the clapping seals in the auditorium who comprise the lawyerly faction in State Capitols all around this great nation. In the 2020 election the states of Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin flaunted their Constitutional duty and betrayed the voters with jaundiced impunity. The fraud was obvious and the 'in yo face' petulance of the guilty Uniparty was disastrous to America's government which is clearly illegitimate. But according to Mike Pence's interpretation of the Constitution he couldn't do anything to stop it, to overturn it or even to question it. The opponents of traditional America can shred the Constitution in pursuit of power but the Patriots must adhere to one man's purposeful and corrupt misinterpretation of the 1877 Compromise (please clap).

The Hoosier was not finished and enjoys one last postcoital moment by smearing his splooge all over smiling faces of his audience:

"The presidency belongs to the American people, and the American people alone. Frankly, there is almost no idea more un-American than the notion that any one person could choose the American president."

None of that is true but if it were true that would make Mike Pence the most un-American man in America because for one decisive moment HE WAS THAT ONE PERSON who chose the American president. He held the fate of the republic in his hands and failed to do his duty, betrayed his oath and made a mockery of our Founders and their Constitution. Any lingering apparition of "popular government" was escorted into the Senate cloakroom where she was molested by faction and an incontinent feeble nincompoop was installed as her proxy. Mankind can feel nothing but contempt and revulsion for a form of government that would allow this travesty to occur - what a Jo(((k)))e.

"I understand the disappointment so many feel about the last election. I was on the ballot. But whatever the future holds, I know we did our duty that day."

Hardy har har, "I was on the ballot" and I'm going to self-deprecate representative democracy right into the dustbin of history because, "whatever the future hold" like, say, economic collapse, techno-medical tyranny or nuclear war, "I know WE did our duty." Hold on a second, did I hear a WE? As in the Royal We of monarchs or was it the We the 81 million People who, er, voted for a diaper wearing dementia patient? Pence is correct on one point - he was on the ballot as were hundreds of other conservative and not so conservative Republicans that got their elections stolen too. His "duty" to certify the fraudulent election was not just political suicided for him but also cost the (R) side of the Senate Martha McSally (AZ), John James (MI), David Purdue (GA) and Kelly Loeffler (GA) plus who knows how many House seats. Mitch McConnell couldn't allow Republicans to win both congressional bodies and maintain the fiction that Trump lost an election to Lunch Bucket Joe so... he flushed the entire MAGA movement and a bunch of useless pachyderms out of The Swamp. This Federalist Society faction would rather lose everything (the entire country) than lose power and Mike Pence lies down with these dogs. On this larger, and more significant "steal" the focus on Trump's refusal to accept the results proves to be a distraction from the systemic crime of manipulating, cheating and thwarting democracy at every level of government.

The hypocrisy of the Pence's closing comments is simply too vile and disgusting to recount but I will say something about Leviticus 25 which is quoted because Pence cites an inscription on the Liberty Bell which reads "Proclaim Liberty thro' all the Land to all the Inhabitants thereof." The "Liberty" celebrated in this Bible passage has very little to do with the enlightened liberalism of the Founders and more or less contradicts the American notion of democracy. The bell was commissioned by Royalists in the colony of Pennsylvania a quarter century before the Declaration of Independence was signed by revolutionary farmers and merchants. The quote signifies nothing about the US Constitution, popular government or Federalism. Leviticus admonishes the children of Israel to make the 50th year a Sabbath and let the land lie fallow with faith that Yahweh will provide while traditional tribal lands are returned to the rightful owners and all the slaves are set free. That's about as unAmerican as you can get.

Mike Pence is the perfect representative for America's Clown World jubilee marking 50 years of failure. If the RNC and Conservative Inc. decide to ride this stiff evangelical psycho into the White House and perform a spy world insurrection to toss Lotus Flower out of the Oval Office I'll watch the show. I'm just one person and I'm not un-American enough to think that I could choose the American president.

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.
