Random Thoughts on Coronavirus and Death

In recent years, it has become a popular part of the vernacular to say, in a variety of situations, “This will not end well.” This melodramatic expression should now be edited for the coronavirus pandemic, to “This will not end.” Several weeks ago, there was a lot of discussion, grounded in firsthand reports and hard evidence, of the fact that in many jurisdictions,...

The Prose Poems and The War

In Citizen Kane, there is a wonderful, breathlessly paced little moment when young newspaper publisher Charles Foster Kane is confronted with a wire from a reporter concerning a war the reporter was sent by Kane to hype for the paper’s readership: Kane: Read the cable. Bernstein: “Girls delightful in Cuba. Stop. Could send you prose poems about the scenery, but don’t feel right...

On Stating the Obvious (Part One)

Michael Levitt is a Nobel Prize-winning professor at Stanford University. Ann Coulter is a cerebral hemorrhage masquerading as a political commentator. Both spoke the truth over the weekend — or rather, both stated the obvious, while conveniently avoiding or overlooking the deepest implications of their respective truths. First, today, the rational side of the equation. (Coulter can wait until I find a more...

In the theatre, they call this “emoting”

Puke Alert: The following post includes a graphic description of actual content from The New York Times. The world’s leading media voice for international communist totalitarianism, in the most glaringly disrespectful, cynical, life-disavowing act of agitprop since those famous pictures of Joseph Stalin smiling with a happy little girl in his arms, has decided to fill its first page on Sunday, May 24th,...

The Disturbing Effects of Surviving…

Hardly a day goes by now without three or four prominent human interest stories making the rounds, in which coronavirus “survivors” detail their ordeals, usually featuring before and after shots meant to alarm the universe with how terrible they looked while sick — which perhaps wouldn’t be so alarming if we were all in the habit of photographing ourselves while lying in bed...

America Bows Her Head

In keeping with his stellar performance as the first self-styled wartime president to simultaneously deny that there is a war, Donald Trump has ordered that flags at all federal buildings and Navy vessels be lowered to half-staff in honor of those who have died of COVID-19.  Why? Amusingly, I notice that CNN actually reports this as “Donald Trump has finally ordered flags to...

Today’s Propaganda Roundup

A very quick swing around the interwebs to survey the latest “news,” i.e., totalitarian propaganda from public enemies who in a civilized world would be rejected from normal society as subversives and fomenters of leftist revolution, but today are almost universally adhered to as indispensable social resources. First up, and aptly so, here is a beauty from everyone’s favorite Marxist front group, The...

The Free Press, Capitalism, and Tyranny

As I have noted since the earliest days of The Pandemic that Ate a Planet, none of the hysteria of this season, and therefore none of the political fraud and usurpation we are seeing each day, would have been possible without the willing assistance and very able wheel-greasing of the mass media. We are witnessing the perfect alignment of all of the media’s...

The Emperor’s New Euphemism: “Coronavirus-Related”

Yesterday, I saw a big red breaking news headline announcing millions of new “COVID-19 related unemployment claims” in the US. Such phrasing has become part of the vernacular during this fabricated global crisis. You have seen it often, so ubiquitously that you may have become slightly numb to it, as I have, and as we are all meant by our masters to do....

More Random Socially Distanced Thoughts

Every positive coronavirus test, every increase in “cases,” every political aide or professional wrestler or meat packer or disco dancer found to have “infected others,” is trumpeted by the totalitarian bootlickers (“journalists”) as an apocalyptic event — and of course, as definitive proof that freedom doesn’t work. Geez, next thing you know, they’ll be trying to tell us we need tyranny to save...
