Which party is going to instigate the violence?

Over at Alt-Right Poop (formerly Right Scoop), the top two headlines as I wake up on this Sunday morning, Korean Time, are “TRUMP TWEETS that impeachment Dems are ‘SAVAGES’!” and “Rashida Tlaib is trying to raise money with ‘Impeach the motherf**ker’ shirt.” Which leads me to ponder this strange question: When the election year rioting starts, which party will have instigated it? The...

“This town isn’t small enough for the both of us!”

Either uncooperative John Bolton has been fired by big tough man Donald Trump — or big tough Johnny Bolton has submitted his resignation to wimpy little Donald Trump. It all depends which of them tweeted last.  Well, I guess this is part of Trump’s recent “woman scorned” routine against Fox News, which is where he found Bolton during that beautiful, star-crossed summer of...

Trump’s New Campaign Slogan Unveiled

The Taliban, a terrorist organization that wishes to rule Afghanistan as the nightmare version of the He-Man Woman-Haters Club, that supported the Al Qaeda attacks on the U.S. in 2001, and that has been at war with U.S. and Afghan forces since those attacks, has just killed several people, including Americans, with a car bomb, because that’s what they do when they are...

Bingo! Young Women, Crying!

In my immediate response to the latest local crime being puffed up into world news and earthshattering tragedy by America’s cheap-thrills-and-cheaper-politics “news media,” I noted the standard and ubiquitous imagery of “people suffering,” perfect optics for the sado-masochistic waning moments of a civilization. I also predicted that the initial photograph that was being displayed everywhere, featuring a middle-aged man with head bowed, would...

Random Reflections: Drinkers, Rapists, Potty Mouths

Trump’s personal assistant, a twenty-eight-year-old party girl — Reince Priebus’s party, that is — went out drinking with reporters, and lo and behold, she got a little drunk, whereupon she bragged and blabbed to said reporters about personal matters related to the Trump family. For this indiscretion, which she claims, pathetically, was supposed to be “off the record,” she has been dismissed from...

God Has The Power

To critics who question Donald Trump’s banter about forcing U.S. companies to leave China, as part of his ongoing reality TV trade war with an opponent at least seventy-five times more intelligent, patient, and vision-oriented than the Orange Knucklehead, the reality TV president offers this heartening answer: For all of the Fake News Reporters that don’t have a clue as to what the...

Trump’s Deliberative Processes

As a child, I often lay awake at dawn conceiving of fanciful notions like this: I blow into the air in my room, and some dust on my night table is swept up in the breeze and sent sailing about the room, and then an alternate breeze from the window carries that dust out of the room, followed by subsequent little gusts throughout...

No Collusion! (Just Good Old-Fashioned Surrender)

Last year, when Trump’s supporters, Trump’s skeptics, and many of Trump’s alleged Democratic opponents were chanting or at least conceding that a Nobel Peace Prize might be in the offing in light of his “new approach” to the North Korean threat, I was almost a lone voice calling the whole thing a typical Trump flim-flam show, and highlighting the essential surrender to communists...

The Titillation Continues

Pleasure enlivens the desire for more pleasure, filling the soul with an insatiable craving for perpetual repetition, a relentless rhythm of titillation and release as inescapably compulsive as an ever-quickening circle dance.  Yesterday it was El Paso, Texas: X number dead, the more the better, for the greater the number, the more justifiable our obsessive staring, and the greater our access to round-the-clock...

How I Interpret Mueller’s Testimony

I have not heard one word of Robert Mueller’s congressional testimony. Nor will I ever voluntarily hear one word of it. To clarify, I mean this: If I ever hear Robert Mueller’s voice, as recorded during this testimony, it will have been an involuntary auditory act, the result of either force or fraud. And when I say “one word,” I am including even...
