Latest musings, analyses, and general madness

Conservative Creepy

Creepy lawyer Michael Cohen signs a plea deal in which he pronounces himself guilty of federal crimes, and implicates Donald Trump in those crimes by declaring that he committed some of them at “the candidate’s” direction, for the express purpose of influencing an election campaign. Mark Levin, a lawyer, along with a radio guest who is also a lawyer, buck each other and...

Survey of the Major News of the Day

Ben Affleck, an actor of no consequence (assuming that isn’t a redundancy), has split up with his girlfriend of one year, citing irreconcilable distances. According to one “source,” “They tried to make it work.” Man, I’m bummed. I thought this one was forever. Anyone remember Good Will Hunting, the most childishly pretentious movie about emotional repression since Ordinary People? It was co-written, I...

Kill the Old

The latest insight from David Hogg, teenage idiot and wannabe revolutionary: “The reason Republicans are successful right now is because they’re empowering young people,” he told me, pointing out that Paul Ryan was 45 when he became Speaker of the House. “Older Democrats just won’t move the f— off the plate and let us take control. Nancy Pelosi is old.” “…and let us...

Reality TV for Pompous Idiots (Season 1, Ep. 1)

Performance art: Progressivism made tangible. Bland hatred for self, life, and the Individual, combined with a snake oil salesman’s chutzpah, in a naked emperor’s play for money and fame — all of it masquerading as the revelation of truths hitherto unimagined. Artifice at the apogee of absurdity, droning on for hours and days, all the while claiming to be more real than Being....

Social Media as Public Utility

Donald Trump, playing to his hordes as usual — the demagogue’s trap — is out on social media attacking social media for “censoring” “Republican/Conservative voices.” (Clever slash there, since the Republicans as a party are in no way connected to anything remotely like conservatism, but they always use these conjunctive forms to hide that fact, thereby sucking naïve conservatives into the establishment vortex.)...

The Greatest Scandal in American History

In a Twitter tirade the other day, Agent Orange (I guess I’m thinking of his “personal Vietnam”) spent the evening on his throne watching his favorite propaganda outlet, and then immediately tweeting favorable quotes about himself from all his talking baboons. I do not watch Fox News, and have no respect for anyone who would be hired there, let alone anyone who would...

The Net Value of Abortion

Chelsea Clinton, whose voice sounds eerily like her mother’s, was speaking during a stop of something called the “Rise up for Roe Tour,” when she suddenly broke into the Clinton female’s equivalent of song — i.e., an inarticulate, trance-like drone — to praise the great god, Death, as only a Clinton can. “Whether you fundamentally care about reproductive rights and access right, because...

Where’s My National Security Gold Card?

Donald Trump, an unprincipled idiot, has revoked the security clearance of former CIA Director and advisor to Barack Obama, John Brennan. Naturally, the progressive media is citing this as a shocking abuse of power. Many on “the right,” however, also seem to find this action disturbing, for reasons I cannot fathom. For the record, although I imagine this hardly needs to be stated...

Trump’s Dog Days

Donald Trump hired a worthless reality TV exhibitionist named Omarosa for a real job in the real White House. He praised her, as he does all his hires, as he continually tells the world he only hires the best people. Well, today that worthless reality TV exhibitionist is a “dog” — according to the man who only hires the best people. When you...

Peter Strzok is Deeply Saddened

I have generally steered clear of the details of Robert Mueller’s investigation into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election. In particular, I have avoided the peripheral soap operas regarding whether or not everyone involved in the investigation is a deep state operative working for Hillary to undermine the Dear Orange Leader. But the FBI’s firing of Peter Strzok warrants a short...
