America Last

We are currently witnessing the unilateral, completely unprovoked surrender of the United States before every significant world dictator, terrorist organization, and angrily pointed finger. (They sometimes call it “withdrawal” and send out their representatives to say stunningly conscienceless things like, “I think Kabul will hold. The question is, can it hold long enough to create a political solution between the sides?”) And the...

The Conservative Grassroots Today

The schoolyard sore loser as international pitchman. Donald Trump has just announced that he is suing Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook) and Jack Dorsey (Twitter) for “censorship.” For a man who serially threatens lawsuits (and a lot of other things) and then backs away, this definitive step forward is quite noteworthy. Here is what it shows me: Donald Trump, a lifelong grifter and name salesman...

Suicide Cult

QAnon, which is to the Trump cult what the Tea Party was to the constitutional conservative movement which preceded the Trump cult as the grassroots voice of the Republican Party, had a meeting of the mindless over the weekend. At this event, Trump’s official voice of violent overthrow, Michael Flynn, seemingly on a mission to prove beyond any shadow of a doubt —...

Contradiction and the Cultist

There is no human being more singularly identified with Donald Trump’s rise from kook fringe primary candidate to viable Republican frontrunner than Steve Bannon. In fact, one could make the case that no one is more responsible for that rise — or more to blame, depending on how you judge the matter — than Bannon. Bannon himself, however, quickly became somewhat estranged from...

Random Thoughts on Upside Down Things

After a second mass shooting within a week, the propaganda servers inform me that, “Celebrities react to Boulder shooting, call for gun legislation.” And this is news because “celebrities” — professional fakers, pretenders, generally empty-headed people of little or no talent who (poorly) entertain others for a living because they never learned how to do anything adult or serious with their lives —...

The Bigly Lie

Donald Trump, a humiliated little girl who still cannot understand, let alone accept, that he was only president in the first place because the Republican Party establishment anointed him as its (highly effective) blunt instrument with which to destroy their hated Tea Party grassroots opposition, is now out there simpering to his cult from their shared alternative universe — Soreloserdom, let us officially...

Comments on CPAC 2021

I have too many things to do in whatever life I have left, and not enough life left to do all of them, to have wasted one second of my time watching this year’s Trump sore losers’ denial party that self-mockingly called itself “CPAC” (Conservative P….something, whatever). I am therefore unbesmirched enough to comment on this lost boys festival and its meaning. Donald...

The Jester’s New Clothes

Donald Trump, in response to Mitch McConnell’s having dumped him in the alley after making a complete fool of him for five years — this being no great feat, given the man’s foolish essence — has “lashed out” at his old puppeteer in his typical twelve-year-old mean girl fashion. And in the process, Trump reveals, admittedly somewhat superfluously, what a pathetically craven shell...

Mission Accomplished, Order Restored, Long Live The King

Mitch McConnell, more than any other Washington establishmentarian, was personally supported by Donald Trump for years prior to 2016. And in 2016, no establishmentarian was more responsible than McConnell for Trump’s runaway domination of the GOP primary process. It is no exaggeration to say that McConnell personally cleared Trump’s presidential path, in exchange for which he scored his greatest, and most cunningly planned...

Random Rants: TDS, Impeachment, Valentine’s Day!

The first time I saw the phrase Trump Derangement Syndrome, during the 2016 Republican primaries, I honestly assumed it was a reference to the mental state of Trump’s more ardent supporters, the millions who had very obviously traded in all their old beliefs and principles to join a TV star’s personality cult. I probably first realized my error when I started getting swarmed...
