Here is a film which every person on Earth needs to watch at this time.
It reinforces the conclusions of my previous article: that NATO’s actions (constant eastward expansion towards Russia in the absence of the threats it was ostensibly set up to defend against [the USSR and Warsaw Pact countries]) have been a provocative, aggressive (albeit slow-motion) attack.
Russia’s recent actions in Ukraine are a line in the sand.
Russia has been very patient for 30 years.
Vladimir Putin is the bravest and most wise leader in the world.
He knew that this was the last point at which to fight.
This was the last point at which Russia could push back against those warmongers cloaked in mutual-defense bullshit (NATO) without the result being a guaranteed nuclear war.
It was a risky move on Putin’s part.
But to do nothing would have been even riskier (in the long run).
I am an American citizen.
I love my country.
I love the military of my country.
I love the soldiers of my country.
But I ZERO faith the the military leadership of my country.
General Lloyd Austin, our current “civilian” Secretary of Defense, has facilitated the pushing of killer vaccines on our troops.
As of 1-2 weeks ago, there had been approximately 12,000 reports of death associated with the three COVID-19 vaccines in the USA (according to the CDC).
Open VAERS (a far more reliable source) had counted approximately 23,000 reports of death in the HHS VAERS system (the same system from which the CDC got its data that it then proceeded to apparently “cook”).
You can say correlation does not necessarily equal causation.
And that is true.
But go to Open VAERS.
Look at the number of heart attacks associated with the three COVID vaccines available in the USA.
Look at the number of miscarriages.
And, particularly, look at the incidence of myocarditis.
And then avail yourself of the statistical breakdown by vaccine.
The most deadly is the Pfizer vaccine (by number of deaths).
The second-most deadly is the Moderna vaccine.
And the least-deadly of the three (still with VERY BAD numbers) is the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
Which one of these vaccines has been the most retroactively regulated?
The JnJ vaccine.
It has taken the fall.
It has been (after the fact) thrown under the bus as the ONE vaccine which is not completely safe.
But the truth is this: none of the three vaccines are safe.
And none of them have been effective.
And Lloyd Austin has made our troops take these vaccines.
The U.S. Army developed its own vaccine.
Is it ready yet?
Is it in use?
Which vaccine(s) was/were our troops required to get?
Could it have been any one of the the three vaccines also available to American civilians?
General Mark Milley, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, did nothing to protect our troops from the policy pushed by Secretary Austin.
General Milley also called China behind President Trump’s back and assured them that he would give them a “heads up” if Trump was going to attack them.
That is treason.
Yet Milley still enjoys the same position he enjoyed under Trump.
And some of us also remember Milley impugning those of us who doubted the 2020 election results as being people motivated by “white rage”.
Chief Naval Officer Admiral Michael Gilday recommended that every U.S. Navy sailor read a book by Ibram X. Kendi.
This was inappropriate.
Apparently Admiral Gilday shares General Milley’s assessment that America is imminently-plagued by racism.
Look up Ibram X. Kendi.
Find the book which Gilday recommended.
And then look up a person named Bishop Garrison.
Garrison was (last I checked) something of an anti-“extremism” czar for the U.S. military.
Do you support Trump?
You are extreme.
Do you wear a red hat that says “Make America Great Again”?
You are extreme.
Do you support Black Lives Matter?
You are not extreme.
Do you support Antifa?
You are not extreme.
This is the narrative which can be cobbled together from the actions of Austin, Milley, Gilday, and Garrison.
Why do I lump Austin into this equation?
Because he saw fit to order an operational stand-down for the entire U.S. military one year ago to address “extremism” within the ranks.
The timing and message were clear.
Those who doubted the accuracy of the 2020 elections were extremists.
Those who came to Washington, D.C. a few months prior (on Jan. 6) to let their voices be heard were extremists.
This is why Joe Biden’s Secretary of Defense took this unprecedented move of an “operational stand-down”.
Were the George Floyd rioters (made up of both BLM and Antifa) of summer 2020 extemists?
I never heard Mark Milley utter the phrase “black rage”.
Milley is white.
Gilday is white.
I never heard Lloyd Austin (who is black) utter the phrase “black rage”.
I never heard Bishop Garrison (who is black) utter the “black rage”.
There was only accommodation of the summer 2020 protestors.
Their rage was to be CODDLED and UNDERSTOOD.
The entire rest of the U.S. military (which is, most of the military) needed to read Ibram X. Kendi so they could be more sensitive and compassionate about the “black rage” of their fellow soldiers.
And not once was it called “black rage” by any leader of the U.S. military.
So our military is being run by fucking retards.
Which is why I respect and support Putin.
Is Putin my President?
Is Russia my country?
But I do not support Joe Biden.
I do not think our elections in 2020 were free and fair.
But I am not a violent protestor.
I am exercising my right to civil disobedience.
Vladimir Putin is a man of action.
I have my doubts as to whether Austin, Milley, Gilday, and Garrison are even men (much less, men of action).
So these are the geniuses we send off to confer with NATO (an aggressive, provocative organization which the United States should leave immediately).
So I say, “Stand With Russia”.
Every news outlet on the planet is making Zelensky out to be a hero.
And the same outlets are making Putin out to be a villain.
I don’t trust these outlets.
They have lied about COVID for two years (and about 9/11 for 20 years).
They have lied about everything.
They set an agenda.
They are constantly agenda-setting.
This is a real phenomenon explained by agenda-setting theory.
So if the media that I thoroughly distrust is brainwashing my neighbors into worshipping Zelensky and “standing” with Ukraine, then I am going to exercise my right to worship Putin and “stand” with Russia.
So I also say, “Stand With Putin”.
Come and get me.
I am sick of your bullshit, AP…Reuters…UPI…McClatchy…DPA…AFP.
I understand choke points.
I understand oil choke points.
And I understand information choke points.
You don’t have to physically control each little news station.
You just control all the upstream news sources.
The wire services.
Where the news gets its news.
And I am sick of it.
But don’t misunderstand me.
I am also sick of Donald Trump.
He was a great President for four years.
Then he started shilling for Pfizer.
“I got the Pfizer”.
He had to let us know which brand.
And then he pushed boosters.
Right after a crowd in Dallas gathered to hear him speak had sung the Christian hymn “How Great Thou Art”.
So he is, at this point, no better than Governor Hochul.
There should be no proselytizing for vaccines in churches or any other religious setting.
If we’re not allowed to preach about politics in church nor endorse candidates (without losing our tax-exempt status), then you’re not allowed to come into our churches and preach about vaccines.
But Trump didn’t stop there.
He gave a moronic, lying (?), whopper of an interview to Candace Owens (whom I love) where he said something to the effect that “people who are taking the COVID vaccines aren’t dying”.
No, I’m sorry Mr. Former-President: yes they are dying.
Some of them, in fact, are dying from the vaccines themselves.
But some of them are dying from COVID even though they are vaccinated.
But that is beside the point.
Trump, as a recent President (who oversaw the commercial rollout of these three vaccines), should be expected to know his shit.
He should be expected to know that 12,000 reports of death had been submitted to HHS VAERS (according to the CDC).
And he should also be expected to know that the CDC is cutting the “reports of death” number in half for some odd reason (which is easily provable by going to the Open VAERS website and finding that there were 23,000 reports of death as of 1-2 weeks ago).
He should know the number of heart attacks.
At least 10,000.
And the number of miscarriages (3-4,000).
And the number of myocarditis cases (30,000).
And he should know that VAERS is a passive surveillance system which has historically caught less than 1% of the actual number of vaccine adverse events and reactions.
This is easily provable by visiting a third website.
The under-reporting of Kawasaki disease makes this an ironclad case.
So Donald Trump should know that his “vaccines that aren’t killing people” are responsible for between 120,000-230,000 deaths so far.
VAERS is a canary in a coal mine.
It can and should be extrapolated by ten-fold multiplication.
But, generally speaking, I am only expecting “uber-genius” Donald Trump to have visited two fucking websites: that of the CDC and that of Open VAERS.
He either hasn’t done that (because he is busy reading the bullshit in the Wall Street Journal), or he is lying his ass off.
Let me be unequivocal: Trump is just as responsible as anyone for ramming through the approval of these neither-safe-nor-effective vaccines.
If we are talking about hundreds of thousands of deaths due to these vaccines, then we are talking about crimes against humanity.
And he has pissed away any chance of using the “I was tricked” defense by unremittingly PROMOTING these vaccines when he should have known that they were unsafe.
What does this have to do with Ukraine?
Putin saw a problem.
They asked for help.
And he helped.
And so I am asking the U.S. military for help.
Both active military and retired.
General Charles Q. Brown.
WHERE THE FUCK ARE YOU?
Joe Biden is gonna get us all killed.
And the first to be killed will be U.S. troops sent into another totally-absurd war that does not need to be fought.
And he is gonna destroy the USA.
Austin, Milley, Gilday, and Garrison (to name but four) are DESTROYING the U.S. military.
If you can’t see that, then I can’t help you.
Readiness and lethality.
Reading Ibram X. Kendi does not enhance readiness or morale.
Forcing killer vaccines on our troops (some of whom have left the service over this issue) does not enhance readiness, nor lethality.
We don’t need to hear General Milley’s thoughts on “white rage”.
That kind of performance put him on par with John Brennan and Michael Hayden.
It is embarrassing.
It is like having a middle schooler for the CJCS.
But readiness and lethality are TOTALLY DESTROYED when a CJCS can call our greatest adversary (China) and promise them that he will give them a “heads up” should the sitting President choose to attack them.
Lohmeier got kicked out for a podcast.
Shame on you, Raymond.
Scheller got kicked out for demanding accountability.
Shame on you, Berger.
The U.S. military is a joke.
I have NO RESPECT for the current leadership of the U.S. military.
But I have IMMENSE RESPECT for Vladimir Putin.
That is my right as an American citizen.
I can critique my government.
I can point out the obvious: that our military leaders are doing a shitty job.
And I can have an opinion: that the Commander-in-Chief of Russia is doing an EXCELLENT job.
For his people.
Putin is looking out for and protecting Russians.
Biden is looking out for and protecting Hunter Biden and his own corrupt dealings in China and elsewhere.
And Austin, Milley, Gilday, and Garrison are going about systematically DESTROYING the defenses (our greatest asset…our soldiers!) of the United States of America.
Lloyd Austin should be capable of visiting the CDC and Open VAERS websites.
Mark Milley should be capable of visiting the CDC and Open VAERS websites.
If Michael Gilday wants to be a gender studies professor, maybe it’s time for him to change careers.
And we don’t need a Malcolm X (Bishop Garrison) micromanaging the thoughts and opinions of our service members.
If you’re gonna call MAGA-hat wearing, American-flag-waving Trump supporters extremists for protesting on Jan. 6 what they felt to be a rigged election, then you gotta call BLM and Antifa extremists as well.
Are you telling me there are no BLM, nor Antifa supporters in the U.S. miltary?
Are you telling me that there is an overrepresentation of MAGA-hat-wearing, American-flag-waving conservatives in the U.S. military?
Seeing as how we have a volunteer military, then maybe shaming these Trump-supporting, patriotic service members is not really the best strategy to boost morale and encourage cohesion.
Is the goal to have recruitment numbers plummet?

What just happened here?
Like a Bach fugue at maximum polyphony.
Like the first movement of Górecki’s third symphony.
It was only three voices tonight, but it seemed like many more.
First, Chris Wallace is not “America’s premier journalist” (as Fox News proffered in the week leading up to this debate).
Even so, this is the closest thing Donald Trump will get to a “fair shake” this entire debate season.
Wallace does not like Trump.
That is pretty obvious.
His disdain for Trump is not very well hidden.
“Fair and balanced”…
But, again, compared to what will follow in other debates, Chris Wallace is at least a photocopy of a fax of ¨journalism“.
The mediators to follow will not even rise to that level of “quality”.
But let’s get to Biden’s “strategy”:
-That’s simply not true.
-That is simply a lie.
-You’re not going to be able to shut him up.
-Donald would you just be quiet for a minute.
Wallace: You’re debating him not me.
Well, actually…he’s debating both of you corrupt pricks.
Trump: Well, I’ll ask Joe.
When the game is not fair (and it isn’t–it hasn’t been for the past four years), then you can’t play fair in return.
Wallace: Mr. President, I’m the moderator of this debate and I would like you to let me ask my question…
Trump: Well, first of all, I guess I’m debating you, not him, but that’s okay. I’m not surprised.
Wallace aims early at Trump…calling a major Trump move (to protect people with pre-existing conditions) “largely symbolic”.
Wallace is not just a moderator. He is setting the agenda. Literally, and in a deeper way.
Back to Biden’s “strategy”:
-I’m not going to listen to him.
-The fact is that everything he’s saying so far is simply a lie. I’m not here to call out his lies. Everybody knows he’s a liar.
Interesting. Impugn the character.
Trump came with examples.
Trump: Joe, you’re the liar. You graduated last in your class not first in your class.
Wallace (existential crisis): Gentlemen, you realize if you’re both speaking at the same time.
-And the fact is this man doesn’t know what he’s talking about.
Trump has to become the moderator. Trump has to ask the hard questions.
Trump: Are you going to pack the court?
Trump: Are you going to pack the court?
Trump becomes the journalist and gets the answer.
DONALD TRUMP: He doesn’t want to answer the question.
JOE BIDEN: I’m not going to answer the question.
And here Biden loses his temper. Trump has ALREADY gotten under his skin (and won).
Biden: Will you shut up, man?
Just remember, kids…if you want to be a true liberal, you will call everything your opponent says (no matter whether it is or isn’t borne out by the facts) a lie. And, furthermore, you will (one way or another) try to shut your opponent up. Sleepy Joe is weak, but his mic was hot enough to drown out Trump for much of this debate. Like a little kid saying, “Nah nah nah…I’m not listening” while sticking his fingers in his ears.
-This is so un-Presidential.
But he’s the fucking President, Joe. And you’re a fucking former VICE President. But, of course, you know what is and isn’t Presidential…
Who’s looking down on whom???
-Keep yapping, man.
-You should get out of your bunker…
Yes, you right that right: Biden told TRUMP that Trump should get out of a “bunker”. Biden tried to spin it immediately into a golf allusion. But it was (at least) the first of many huge missteps by Biden.
Trump then correctly points out the skewed reporting over the past FOUR years.
Trump: They give you good press, they give me bad press because that’s the way it is, unfortunately.
But when Biden questioned Trump’s intellect, the POTUS dropped a MOAB on Biden.
DONALD TRUMP: Did you use the word smart?
Trump: So you said you went to Delaware State, but you forgot the name of your college. You didn’t go to Delaware State. You graduated either the lowest or almost the lowest in your class. Don’t ever use the word smart with me. Don’t ever use that word.
-Will he just shush for a minute?
Turning the captured cannons on the battlefield.
DONALD TRUMP: Wait a minute, Joe. Let me shut you down for a second, Joe, just for one second. He wants to shut down the country. We just went through it. We had to, because we didn’t know anything about the disease. Now we’ve found that elderly people with heart problems and diabetes and different problems are very, very vulnerable. We learned a lot. Young children aren’t, even younger people aren’t. We’ve learned a lot, but he wants to shut it down. More people will be hurt by continuing. If you look at Pennsylvania, if you look at certain states that have been shut down, they have Democrat governors, all, one of the reasons they shut down is because they want to keep it shut down until after the election on November 3rd.
-re: masks –> He’s a fool on this.
Again impugning Trump’s character (specifically intellect and/or judgement). Thin ice.
Let’s take a look at the Biden “intellect” for a moment.
Biden: That’s why I’m going to eliminate the Trump tax cuts. And I’m going to eliminate those tax cuts.
DONALD TRUMP: Why didn’t you do it over the last 25 years?
JOE BIDEN: Because you weren’t president and screwing things up.
JOE BIDEN: You’re the worst president America has ever had. Come on.
A lot of anger. A lot of emotion. And not a lot of logic.
Biden “strategy” then starts to really tank:
Really? A little late to the game, Joe.
Where did you get that idea?
JOE BIDEN: By the way, I’m going to eliminate a significant number of the taxes. I’m going to make the corporate tax 28%. It shouldn’t be 21%.
Hmm. Last time I checked, 28% was MORE than 21%. So…he’s going to “eliminate” taxes by making them HIGHER?
-JOE BIDEN: Yeah, because what he did, even before COVID, manufacturing went in the hole. Manufacturing went in a hole-
So Biden isn’t a cozy-with-China globalist who would prefer America to be a service-based economy while offshoring nearly all manufacturing to the PRC?
I think not.
His record says otherwise.
Trump is the first U.S. President (over the course of DECADES) who has tried to claw back good-paying manufacturing jobs FROM China. No Democrat (or Republican) before him has tried to do this since China’s cheap labor became the beneficiary to the deindustrialization of the USA.
JOE BIDEN: I’m the guy that brought back the automobile industry.
What the fuck is he talking about?!?
Biden “strategy” continues:
-That is not true.
DONALD TRUMP: China ate your lunch, Joe. And no wonder your son goes in and he takes out billions of dollars. He takes out billions of dollars to manage. He makes millions of dollars. And also, while we’re at it, why is it just out of curiosity, the mayor of Moscow’s wife gave you a son three and a half million dollars?
-That is not true.
-None of that is true.
-None of that is true.
-That is not true.
[it gets a little old, doesn’t it]
That was a rhetorical question.
DONALD TRUMP: It’s a fact.
JOE BIDEN: It is not a fact.
Under Joe’s skin again. Sensitive topic. Hunter Biden.
JOE BIDEN: Well, it’s hard to get any word in with this clown. Excuse me, this person.
Biden “strategy” [hereafter BS…for brevity, etc.]:
-That is simply not true.
-That’s not true.
Chris Wallace’s true colors come out. To the question, “Can I be honest?”, Wallace shuts down all dialogue…because Trump veers into asking about Joe’s quid pro quo to get a Ukrainian prosecutor fired (a prosecutor investigating corruption related to his son Hunter). The quid pro quo involved a billion dollars in American taxpayer money.
DONALD TRUMP: Chris, can I be honest? It’s a very important question-
JOE BIDEN: Try to be honest.
CHRIS WALLACE: No.
DONALD TRUMP: He stood up-
CHRIS WALLACE: The answer to the question is no.
DONALD TRUMP: … and the threatened Ukraine-
CHRIS WALLACE: Sir-
DONALD TRUMP: … with a billion dollars-
JOE BIDEN: That is absolutely not true.
Wallace: Why should I be different than the two of you?
Chris Wallace doesn’t want to “report” the news. He doesn’t want to give facts. Instead, he wants to shape public opinion. As good as he is (compared to literal CIA hacks like Anderson Cooper), he is still beholden to his own jealousy…nay, envy (if not also beholden to an untoward entity).
Two summers at Langley.
“For a couple months over the course of two summers, I worked at the CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia.”
Joe having trouble remembering that equity and equality mean two different things:
JOE BIDEN: It’s about equity and equality. It’s about decency. It’s about the constitution. And we have never walked away from trying to require equity for everyone, equality for the whole of America.
More cognitive dissonance (bland propaganda):
JOE BIDEN: … second point I’d make to you, is that when Floyd was killed, when Mr. Floyd was killed, there was a peaceful protest in front of the White House. What did he do? He came out of his bunker, had the military use tear gas on them so he could walk across to a church and hold up a Bible.
[sidenote…the church in question was set on fire…by the “peaceful” protesters…and later visited by Trump (who indeed had a Bible)]
DONALD TRUMP: You did a crime bill, 1994, where you call them super predators. African-Americans are super predators and they’ve never forgotten it. They’ve never forgotten it.
There is quite a lot of truth in this. Biden did indeed use this term. He very much seemed to be referring to black people when using said term.
-I’ve never said-
You make the call. Who is he talking about?
DONALD TRUMP: I don’t think you have any law enforcement. You can’t even say the word law enforcement. Because if you say those words, you’re going to lose all of your radical left supporters.
It does certainly appear that Joe Biden has backtracked on his “tough on crime” stance from years ago. It does certainly appear that he has caved to AOC and BLM. Because he NEEDS those votes Scary.
Trump re: racial sensitivity training (shaming white men solely because of the color of their skin and because of a heritage they had no choice but be born into):
“They were teaching people that our country is a horrible place. It’s a racist place. And they were teaching people to hate our country. And I’m not going to allow that to happen.”
JOE BIDEN: Nobody’s doing that. He’s the racist.
Very quick to impugn character. Very quick. And very hackneyed. Never a new trope.
Chris Wallace setting the agenda again…because he’s really so worried about “hellholes” like Tulsa and Fort Worth… Give me a fucking break:
CHRIS WALLACE: That’s exactly my question. There has been a dramatic increase in homicides in America this summer particularly, and you often blame that on Democratic mayors and Democratic governors. But in fact, there have been equivalent spikes in Republican led cities, like Tulsa and Fort Worth. So the question is, is this really a…
You can’t compare those two cities with Chicago. Or Minneapolis. Or Portland. Or Seattle. Or Oakland. Or Baltimore. Apples and motherfucking oranges.
JOE BIDEN: I was raised in the suburbs. This is not 1950. All these dog whistles and racism don’t work anymore. Suburbs are by and large integrated. There’s many people today driving their kids to soccer practice and/or black and white and Hispanic in the same car as there have been any time in the past, what really is a threat to the suburbs and their safety is his failure to deal with COVID. They’re dying in the suburbs. His failure to deal with the environment, they’re being flooded, they’re being burned out because his refusal to do anything. That’s why the suburbs are in trouble.
Trump’s a racist and the main problem plaguing the suburbs is “climate change”. Not in Chicago. Not in Portland. Not in Seattle.
In Portland, months of riots…every night. And then (voila!) the fires. Very convenient, these fires, for indebted states like California.
There are a plethora of examples of fires being intentionally set this season…particularly in Oregon:
Scroll down a bit.
Another Biden gaffe happens on the topic of cities which have literally been burned by arsonists, but again: it’s Trump’s fault.
Biden: He just pours gasoline in the fire constantly and every single solitary time.
Trump is mocking the fact that Wallace and Biden (and the entire liberal [media] establishment) have him on trial.
DONALD TRUMP: What do you want to call them? Give me a name, give me a name, go ahead who do you want me to condemn.
Then Biden makes a startlingly-moronic statement:
Biden: Antifa is an idea not an organization-
-You have no idea about anything.
Trump: And that’s despite the impeachment hoax and you so what happened today with Hillary Clinton, where it was a whole big con job. But despite going through all of these things where I had a fight, both flanks and behind me and above there has never been an administration that’s done what I’ve done. The greatest, before COVID came in the greatest economy in history, lowest unemployment numbers, everything was good. Everything was going.
DONALD TRUMP: When you leave office, you don’t leave any judges. That’s like, you just don’t do that. They left 128 openings and if I were a member of his party, because they have a little different philosophy, I’d say, if you left us 128 openings you can’t be a good president. You can’t be a good vice president but I want to thank you because it gives us almost, it’ll probably be above that number. By the end of this term, 300 judges. It’s a record.
DONALD TRUMP: Are you talking Hunter, are you talking about Hunter.
JOE BIDEN: I’m talking about my son, Beau Biden, you’re talking about Hunter?
DONALD TRUMP: I don’t know Beau. I know Hunter. Hunter got thrown out of the military. He was thrown out dishonorably discharged.
JOE BIDEN: That’s not true he was not dishonorably discharged.
DONALD TRUMP: For cocaine use. And he didn’t have a job until you became vice president.
JOE BIDEN: None of that is true.
DONALD TRUMP: Once you became vice president he made a fortune in Ukraine, in China, in Moscow and various other places.
JOE BIDEN: That is not true.
-That is not true. That report is totally discredited.
Two against one.
CHRIS WALLACE: I’d like to talk about climate change.
JOE BIDEN: So would I.
DONALD TRUMP: Not true. Not true-
JOE BIDEN: It’s all true.
Deft counterpunching ensues [BS]:
-JOE BIDEN: Not true-
-JOE BIDEN: Not true.
-JOE BIDEN: Not true.
Ending with a hyphen on the first iteration was really a subtle way of changing it up…
-That is simply not the case-
Truth bomb incoming:
DONALD TRUMP: So why didn’t you get the world… China sends up real dirt into the air. Russia does. India does. They all do. We’re supposed to be good.
Denial and deception only goes so far:
DONALD TRUMP: He called the military stupid bastards.
JOE BIDEN: I did not say that-
DONALD TRUMP: He said it on tape. [crosstalk]-
CHRIS WALLACE: Please, sir. [crosstalk] Stop.
DONALD TRUMP: I would never say that [crosstalk]-
JOE BIDEN: Play it. Play it-
CHRIS WALLACE: Stop. Go ahead-
DONALD TRUMP: You’re on tape-
“Clap for that, you stupid bastards! Man, you all are a dull bunch. Must be slow or something here, man.”
As fake as Kamala Harris is (and she is fake as fuck), Biden is a thoroughly corrupt career politician masquerading as a common man.
He can’t even remember what lie he told yesterday.
He is a pathological liar AND has senile dementia.
He will do or say ANYTHING to become President.
JOE BIDEN: No, I don’t support the Green New Deal.
DONALD TRUMP: Oh, you don’t? Oh, well, that’s a big statement.
JOE BIDEN: I support [crosstalk]-
DONALD TRUMP: You just lost the radical left.
DONALD TRUMP: So when I listen to Joe talking about a transition, there has been no transition from when I won. I won that election. And if you look at crooked Hillary Clinton, if you look at all of the different people, there was no transition, because they came after me trying to do a coup. They came after me spying on my campaign. They started from the day I won, and even before I won. From the day I came down the escalator with our first lady, they were a disaster. They were a disgrace to our country, and we’ve caught them. We’ve caught them all. We’ve got it all on tape. We’ve caught them all. And by the way, you gave the idea for the Logan Act against General Flynn. You better take a look at that, because we caught you in a sense, and President Obama was sitting in the office.
Here is a troubling masterpiece.
Because as history unfolds, old modes of expression fall out of style.
They become crude.
And yet, this is a funny fucking film.
We encounter almost the same phenomenon with the priceless, all-world The Party of 1968.
If you like Peter Sellers as an Indian (“Do you speak Hindustani?”), then you are racist.
This is what we are told.
So, then, we are not allowed to laugh at Peter Sellers anymore.
However, notice the double-standard at work in the Pink Panther films.
No one ever says, “Clouseau is such a racist depiction of the French!”
It is because “the white man” has had the rug pulled from underneath him.
The French have everything…
The Louvre, great bread, Dijon, Bordeaux…[a nice meal coming together there, that!]
So therefore, the French should be dispossessed of their wealth in all its many manifestations.
And, sadly, that’s socialism.
Make everybody the same.
Take by force.
Doesn’t sound very civilized to me…
Rather, sounds fairly barbarian.
A shortcut on hard work.
But I’m really aiming to get under your thumb (er, skin) as regards “race”.
I put it in skeptical quotations because modern genetics has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that the concept of “race” is ridiculous.
As Geoffrey Carr of The Economist puts it, “One group of 55 chimps in West Africa shows more genetic diversity than the whole of humanity.”
I usually don’t trust The Economist farther than I can throw it.
Because there are no bylines.
And it is a clearly globalist rag.
But Mr. Carr has a point.
To put words in his mouth…if there are no races, then there must be no racism.
I’m sure some other word will suffice.
I’ll get back to you once I wade through Euclid’s Elements.
But I hope my point is clear.
If races don’t exist (a notion the globalists are pushing very hard…for ulterior motives), then racism is an absurd concept.
But still, SOMETHING exists.
Perhaps it’s just a “rose” by another name.
Which brings us to this film.
Three Amigos. It’s racist, right?
I mean, the Mexicans in this film aren’t doctors and lawyers.
They don’t speak flawless English with no hint of accent.
And though they run a small gamut, there are indeed stereotypes at work.
But is it mean-spirited?
I would argue it is not.
Or else, the Pink Panther films should all be banned out of deference to the French.
Which is no less absurd than saying John Landis’ masterpiece under review is “racist”.
But let me bring a different slant (no pun intended) to this dialogue.
In my area, south Texas, a mixing of “races” is apparent.
There are white people. And a few black people. But mostly there are brown people.
And then there are gradations.
So-and-so is darker than what’s-his-name. And so on and so forth.
And we know that this darkness in skin pigmentation (for Mexican-Americans) comes largely from the Native Americans who populated what is today the U.S. and Mexico.
Before the Europeans arrived.
But here’s my personal two bits.
This film, Three Amigos, was cherished by me and all my school chums when we were growing up.
People with last names like Lopez, De Los Santos, etc.
We were all friends.
And though we may have fallen out of touch with one another, we all seemed to find enjoyment in Three Amigos.
Indeed, my Hispanic (Latino) friends apparently found the characterizations of Mexicans the funniest.
And, dare I say it, because (as the adage goes), “It’s–so–true!!!”
Whether any characterization of Mexicans in this film is or isn’t true…that’s immaterial.
I am not the ultimate judge.
But things have changed.
And it’s not just the Trump effect.
Over the years, people have become more and more “polite”.
That’s a good thing, right?
Well, I’m not so sure…
Because it’s not a genuine politeness.
It’s a politesse which is enforced topdown.
It’s not really a choice.
And, to make dead clear, it is our old nemesis: social engineering.
It is in this sense that social engineering is truly defined.
Any other definition (the activities of a pickpocket, a conman, a hacker) is insufficient and misleading.
Social engineering is, by-and-large, practiced at the highest levels of government, at policy institutions, and in commerce by Ivy League jerks (both male and female) who wish to mold society into a shape pleasing unto them.
And like those pernicious Fabians of old, they have no qualms about smashing the world to bits if such means lead to their desired end.
The Fabians, of course, never rush anything. Unless they panic. At which time they reveal themselves. To be the losers they are.
Yes, I am no fan of the Fabian socialists.
Because their whole programme is predicated on deception and secrecy.
And, as such, it should be thoroughly suspect whenever encountered.
But this is a comedy, right?
Yes! Amen!! Something we can agree on!!!
This grand apologia is to introduce one of my favorite films.
It is not “politically correct”, but then NOTHING was in 1986.
And with “correctness” we have lost our sense of humor.
We are too easily offended.
We need “safe spaces”.
Ok, ok…I promise I’m not about to get all Bill O’Reilly here.
Because I have railed AGAINST Fox News for many years.
And, dare I say it, the real heroes in the USA were those who took CHANCES…BIG FUCKING CHANCES…to preserve liberty.
Trump came to the party late.
And I came to Trump even later.
But the real heroes are people like Alex Jones.
Indeed, there is no one like him.
But with the “Joneses” came others like Steve Pieczenik.
And so the tables have turned against the globalists.
Thank God for BREXIT!
Thank God for Trump!
And may God bless Marine Le Pen!
Because the neoliberal nightmare in which we are now mired (including the neoconservative, never-ending wars) has set the globalist agenda back decades.
The European Union is falling apart.
And rightly so.
Because it was a bad idea in the first place.
France must get rid of the atrocious Loi Gayssot.
And other European countries must follow suit.
We must be allowed to TALK!
The Internet will not allow tyranny.
Every government which seeks to control will find itself obsolete.
And so call it whatever you want.
If you’re “free market”, then the Internet is the genius of capitalism.
If you’re fond of sharing (so am I), then the Internet is the redistributive genius of socialism.
And, finally, we have the monstrosity of China.
Clearly no longer a communist state.
Yet neither a capitalist free market.
The mutant which is China…that juggernaut has been smashing the world in terms of productivity.
But there is a limit.
Now the people want FREEDOM.
[or so we are told]
At any rate, the blowback of globalism will ensure that the Chinese people crave the OPPORTUNITY (at least) to behave like Westerners.
THAT much is human nature.
And so I am not against natural globalization.
In that respect, the Fabians are right.
If “gradualism” is taken to mean “let nature take its course”.
But I am and will forever remain AGAINST synthetic globalism.
Globalization vs. globalism.
Suffice to say, I am very much against FORCED globalization.
And perhaps Erdoğan is a manifestation of reaction.
“Reactionary”, as the socialists always say. The worst insult a leftie can level!
As such, I have nothing against Erdoğan, but he can’t hold on to power IN SPITE OF the people.
Same with Trump.
Trump barely squeaked out a victory.
Because the globalist machine is so strong in America.
But rural pride was stronger.
And the Electoral College defeated Hillary Clinton.
But Trump will have to produce.
He knows this.
The clock is ticking on his four years.
And he has had adversaries on all sides.
So it remains to be seen…whether he will make good on his campaign promises.
I am standing behind him.
I am supporting him.
But I am ready to call “bullshit” when the moment is ripe.
Hopefully that moment will never come.
Hopefully he will be a wonderful President.
Which brings us back to “race”.
It’s not meant to be “a symbol”, it’s meant to be a wall.
And we in America have long known that the story of 9/11 is seriously flawed…like Swiss cheese…it is not plausible.
I often shoot my mouth off (my defining characteristic), but I have done my research on 9/11.
It may be the most complex event ever.
But it certainly was not the work of 19 blokes with boxcutters.
And everywhere…we saw the stand-down.
Two parts to Roberta Wohlstetter’s pet theory.
9/11 was no more Islamic than Mickey Mouse.
And so many signs proved this case.
If it had been an attack actually emanating from outside the United States (as opposed to an inside, CIA job), then our southern border would have been secured toot sweet.
But such was not the case.
And those of us near the southern border had all the information we needed to put the final nail in the coffin.
That 9/11 was a self-inflicted attack.
[with help from Israeli Mossad and others]
It was a team effort of the globalists.
However, to paraphrase Guy Debord, “deceit deceived itself”.
9/11 was the day when the Ivy League lost.
Once and for all.
Never again will Yale be the same.
Never again will Harvard be guiltless (if they ever were [and they weren’t]).
Brave people spoke out.
Webster Tarpley (of Princeton).
Steve Pieczenik (of Cornell and Harvard).
But now our Ivy League President (Penn) has a chance to reverse the sustained-lie–the 8-year-nightmare of Barack Obama’s unreality.
The Democratic Party squandered its chance to see the neocons swing from the gallows.
It would have been the end of the Republican Party.
But the Democrats chose more deception.
You can’t kill a dead man (bin Laden).
The fraudulent War “on” Terror waged on…with many innocent patriots deceived unto death.
And now race…racism…is but one problem plaguing us.
So, my friends, I urge you to see Three Amigos.
Let yourself laugh.
And “think about it” (as Jerry Lee Lewis was wont to say).
But don’t think too hard.
Because hell too is part of the divine comedy.
The Trump Presidency officially has a new high-water mark.
And it came today.
The epic excoriation of Western media (and, in particular, the woeful American branch of that diseased tree).
I have largely refrained from treating political events for the past months.
This was for a variety of reasons.
But today’s Trump victory was a feature-length (*) reminder of why we elected this guy.
I didn’t see it live, but I watched the interview in its entirety later in the day.
With the utmost irony, I will be using and referring to the “official transcript” which has just recently been posted by The New York Times.
It’s only befitting that they continue to precipitate their own downfall.
Keep in mind that the NYT is getting their transcript from Federal News Service: a subsidiary of The Economist Group.
As in The Economist.
As in, that spineless, globalist rag which completely forgoes bylines (à la Chatham House rules).
As in, the opposition.
Keeping that in mind, let’s see exactly what the hero of the free world had to say today.
First, President Trump bemoaned the treatment of his cabinet selections.
Indeed, the Democratic Party in the United States has become the embarrassment they wish to project upon Donald Trump.
The Democratic Party has, it seems, absolutely no cogent strategy whatsoever at this point.
And so, indeed, the only real political chaos is within that camp.
To clarify…it’s not just a BAD strategy which the Democrats have adopted in an effort to keep their ragtag band of poseurs on political life-support, but rather A COMPLETE LACK OF STRATEGY which characterizes the sum of their pathetic tactics.
Yes, Mr. Trump: “the people get it”.
We rednecks. We of middle-America.
Many colors and creeds.
Yes, we fucking get it.
You are the man!
As a student of (and holder of an advanced degree in) business, I bloody well understand why the world of commerce is welcoming Trump.
It’s those trite words which are pounded into every MBA’s head.
There’s no Bernie-Sanders-ing our way out of the current quagmire.
Only a leader with tremendous cojones could even have a shot at successfully pulling off the rebuilding of America.
Because we have squandered our position in the world.
At the expense of truth, we have fallen down a muddy chute.
And the free-fall (while not apparent to all) has been going on for some time.
So we are, indeed, putting a great deal of faith in Mr. Trump to right the ship.
Really, we’re like the goddamned Titanic over here.
But business has to work.
There’s no willy-nilly socialism which is going to patch up our death-wound which is bleeding money.
There’s no value creation in that.
Try it out.
It doesn’t work.
Which isn’t to say that rapacious monopoly capitalism is the answer.
But we are a capitalist country.
And China’s ascent has not been due to some new interpretation of Marx.
“I’m making this presentation directly to the American people, with the media present, which is an honor to have you. This morning, because many of our nation’s reporters and folks will not tell you the truth, and will not treat the wonderful people of our country with the respect that they deserve.”
Yes, dear friends…the election of Donald Trump was a referendum AGAINST THE CORPORATE MASS MEDIA.
[first and foremost]
And this same media is still living in denial.
Their allies are reprobates.
And they reach out their desperate tentacles for shadier and shadier sustenance.
And so, though it be hard to fathom, the mass media in the U.S. is actually GETTING WORSE.
That’s because it is dying.
Donald Trump is no idiot.
His assessment of The New York Times as being a terminally-failing (publically-traded) company is business analysis.
And it’s unequivocal.
But you know what?
The media hated Trump all along.
The old media.
And he didn’t, as it turned out, need to curry favor with them after all.
He spoke to the crowd.
He went around.
He outflanked the biggest, most puffed-up hegemony in the world.
So we’re giving Israel a chance.
We’re giving Trump a chance.
I’m not a Republican.
I’m just a schmuck who voted for Trump.
You can make the call as to whether I’m erudite enough to have such a privilege.
But Donald Trump has taught me to have pride in my country.
To have pride in the United States of America.
To be grateful for those who serve in the military.
To be grateful for those who serve as police officers.
That’s the positivity I get from Donald Trump.
It’s probably the Norman Vincent Peale in him.
But I also see a very strong leader.
A person who doesn’t take any shit from anyone.
Had Bernie Sanders such a spine, the protests would have gone for broke at the Democratic National Convention.
But too bad.
You had your chance to dethrone your greatest foe.
And she was in your own camp.
You know, I actually feel sorry for the Democratic Party…
No political party should have ever been represented by such a lousy candidate as Hillary Clinton.
But that was the “now-or-never” moment.
And we who embraced the market system which rewards hard work…we won.
[and it doesn’t take a genius to understand why]
Complaining after the fact doesn’t cut it.
Get out and vote.
Blood, sweat, and tears.
If you lose, you lose.
But if you half-ass it, probability is not in your favor.
We Trump supporters took immense heat.
We’re “racist”. “Bigots”.
Blah blah frickety blah.
But it doesn’t matter what you pathetic losers think.
Because, believe it or not, we actually want prosperity for you too.
Because maybe someday you’ll thank us that we still have a country left.
But I’ll just leave you with one zinger which sums up our entire Zeitgeist.
You wanna know Donald Trump’s take on the media…in one pithy jab?
“The press — the public doesn’t believe you people anymore.”
That carried the day.
The anti-Trump media (which is at least 80% of the American airwaves and newsstands) needs to go back to their Sun Tzu, their Machiavelli, their Clausewitz, and their Jomini.
Because they’re losing this fucking war.
The decimation is more laughable than honorable.
Unlock your little brains, liberals.
Come out and play.
And leave the deck-chair-rearranging to Schumers.
First, I owe a deep apology to my fellow bloggers who have continued to follow and support me. I have been swamped with work and embroiled in the current US election. Thank you so much for your kindness! I look forward to graduating with a master’s degree in about a month and hope to “get back on the wagon” of following each and every one of your amazing blogs.
Second, my conscience requires that I addend my previous takes on two very controversial figures: Marina Abramović and Edward Snowden.
As I have continued my research on Ms. Abramović, I am more and more convinced that her dabblings in the occult are not mere innocent instances of artistic expression. I still do not know what role she plays in the increasingly lurid child sex ring which is leaking from NYPD and FBI sources, but her buddies the Podestas (John Podesta, Hillary’s campaign chairman, and his brother Tony) seem more and more solidly “in the tank” as regards genuine sexual abuse of minors, child trafficking, and (even more shocking) ritualistic murder of these same kidnapped children.
I am not saying that the Podestas are guilty of these crimes. I am, however, pointing out that mounting evidence suggests they are part of something which bears this general outline. Also involved is the (likely) Saudi spy Huma Abedin. But the kingpins seem to be the Clintons themselves.
I was a bit dismissive of hysteria when I defended Marina Abramović’s artistic merits. I do still think she is an incredibly gifted artist. But no amount of genius excuses child rape and ritualistic murder of young people. [We shall be discussing here a similarly “brilliant” psychopath: Lex Luthor.]
Quite frankly, Hillary Clinton seems to be a witch in the most literal sense.
It was my imperfect knowledge which caused my failure to grasp the bigger picture in the Abramović case (“spirit cooking”, in which the Podesta brothers and John’s wife Mary engaged in presumably a dinner with artist Marina Abramović which likely involved ingesting breast milk, semen, urine, and blood).
But there is more to “spirit cooking”…and more to Marina Abramović.
First, it has been suggested that the TRUEST (most genuine) “spirit cooking” would be, essentially, cannibalism: eating the flesh or organs of spirits (dead children) who are cooked.
Second, Abramović’s references are not anodyne. I cannot get into the details of “spirit cooking’s” connections to Aleister Crowley and Thelema because I am not conversant in such esoteric knowledge. But I can confirm that child sacrifice is an obsession of the ruling elites in at least the US and UK (as evidenced by the opening ceremonies of Bohemian Club meetings near San Francisco which are documented to include a “mock” child sacrifice called “the cremation of care”).
My conclusion that Hillary Clinton truly practices illegal manifestations of magic is partly due to the words of former Clinton family employee Larry Nichols who is on record as saying that Bill Clinton told him that Hillary Clinton would make monthly (at least) treks to California to participate in a witches’ coven. You can bet she wasn’t playing second fiddle at these shindigs!
And so what my readers must understand is that, for these perverse elites, black magic is very real. At the very least, it appears that they are engaged in illegal activities pursuant to these ritualistic leanings. And thus, as stated, my take on Marina Abramović was both uninformed and naïve insofar as occult context goes.
I must make a further confession. I may have done injustice to Edward Snowden to be so skeptical of his aims. The same goes for my suspicion of Glenn Greenwald and Laura Poitras.
And I’ll tell you why.
The majority of real news we are getting in the USA is thanks to WikiLeaks.
Edward Snowden has certainly been lumped in with Julian Assange.
To my satisfaction, Julian Assange and WikiLeaks have proven themselves to be a credible (and priceless) asset for world freedom.
And so perhaps I was too harsh on Snowden.
One thing is certain: we must remember that the eyes are the most easily-fooled of our senses.
So for me to proclaim, as an amateur film critic, that I know the score of Snowden’s veracity should not be taken as gospel truth.
Is Edward Snowden the Superman in this whole thing?
Actually, I would make the case that it is (rather) Donald Trump who is the true Superman on the world stage at the moment.
And it is indeed germane that he be facing off against Hillary Luthor.
And so we have a brilliant movie.
From director Richard Donner.
This is what superhero movies should be like.
Back when CGI didn’t suck (and the Clinton Global Initiative was yet to exist).
Superman brings hope.
To the deepest, darkest, most depressed and forgotten corners of America.
Not insignificant, Superman is a journalist by day.
The names here are blockbuster.
Marlon Brando as Superman’s biological father.
Perhaps James Comey is like Brando’s character Jor-El (who pronounces judgment against insurrectionists but then must acquiesce to the fate of death for he and his wife).
Which is to say, maybe James Comey of the US FBI is an honorable man.
Sure doesn’t seem like it.
But from surrender, a child is borne upon the seas of outer space.
Glenn Ford is excellent as Superman’s adoptive father.
Phyllis Thaxter is wonderful as Superman’s adoptive mother.
Jeff East is very good as the teenage Clark Kent.
Superman is all about the outcast getting his revenge on society…BY DOING GOOD!
Are you an outcast?
And we all know pain.
The pain of discrimination. Not fitting in. Being the odd man out. The ugly duckling.
We can feel that the world (our little world) doesn’t want us.
And it is tremendously traumatic.
But Superman is a bit like Saint Jude the Apostle: patron saint of lost causes.
Superman speaks to the most lowly among us.
Schizophrenics. Shut-ins. Impoverished. Living in squalor.
Superman lets us dream.
We may have nothing but a VCR. We have never gone on a date, much less had a girlfriend.
The world has forgotten about us.
But Superman gives us hope.
That someone or some thing is going to come along and lift us out of our misery.
The Trump connection is strong.
Doesn’t drink. Doesn’t smoke.
The World Trade Center (still standing) in the background (1978).
As Christopher Reeve zips through the New York City sky.
Mr. Reeve is astonishingly good as an actor in this film.
Enter Lois Lane.
Margot Kidder is so charming in this film 🙂
Her skinny little frame never stops moving as she tries to get the latest scoop in her job as a reporter.
But what else does Superman represent?
He represents the good cops who dive into the abyss each night to patrol the unpredictability of our streets.
He represents the good FBI who “damn the torpedoes” and go after the bad guys (and gals) [whomever they turn out to be].
Superman fights crime.
He never lies.
Superman is a protector.
Like the brave Secret Service agents who did a wonderful job shielding Mr. Trump two days ago in Reno from what could have been imminent gunfire.
Supermen are willing human shields.
Like our military.
And Superman does not suffer the deviance of pencil pushers who would try and leverage their brilliance to harm people.
If I was a Hillary supporter, I would compare Trump to Lex Luthor (realtors both).
But sometimes history offers us a counterintuitive option.
Donald Trump, while a realtor, is not out to screw the American public.
He has enough money.
He’s not a sycophant like Hillary.
The famous red “Make America Great Again” (MAGA) hat does not feature Trump’s name on it.
It’s not about him.
It’s about America.
Hillary’s campaign always comes back to her…in a self-serving way.
The ubiquitous H signs and the trite “I’m with her” détournement of a decades-old pop culture phrase.
Neither of Hillary’s taglines (including “Stronger Together”) ring true.
Mostly because SHE doesn’t ring true. In anything. At all. Ever.
But Superman is for real teamwork.
Superman has humility.
But he also has immense confidence. Pride, not arrogance.
And not least, Superman has a wry sense of humor.
With Luthor’s “staffer” Otis (Ned Beatty), there are a plethora of possible parallels to the iniquitous (and, frankly, incompetent) team of ass-kissers with whom Hillary has surrounded herself.
While John Podesta may very well be categorically evil, he’s no evil genius.
What kind of idiot forgoes the advice to encrypt?
But Hillary is really her own Otis.
Only Otis would be so dumb as to use a personal email server and (among other things) let her Filipino maid print out classified documents while Hillary was at Foggy Bottom.
Which makes Hillary the foggy bottom-feeder. Always. Forever.
Good attracts evil.
Good can change evil (and vice versa).
But be good…and you will reap the rewards of goodness.
Perhaps Valerie Perrine will rescue you from a swimming pool 🙂
We must save our mothers in Hackensack.
If you’re on the side of evil, it’s time to switch teams.
Good is merciful.
Do not wait until it’s too late.
Hillary has poisoned her own well just like Lex Luthor.
She is coming down.
It’s not a question of if, but rather of when.
However, those who have the opportunity to expose her misdeeds and yet stay silent must bear upon their consciences their accessory roles as silent partners to the evil destruction of America.
There may not be another chance.
So many people are tied to Hillary’s ring of corruption.
If they retain power, they will use all means necessary to purge the country of dissenters.
Don’t believe the “stronger together” hogwash.
Time to deliver Luthor and Otis to prison.
Are you the Superman we seek?
The United States continues to hold its breath.
And while doing so, it is worth revisiting the second Presidential debate of less than a month ago.
The “moderators” were the woeful Martha Raddatz and the downright evil (remember James Tracy!) Anderson Cooper.
These two jokers made fools of themselves.
But let’s assess this “town hall” shootout.
When Cooper said, “…the night really belongs to the people in this room…,” what he really meant was himself, Raddatz, and Hillary Clinton.
Screw everybody else.
And that attitude has come back to bite the mass media in the butt…big time!
Clinton says, “…I can promise you I will work with every American. I want to be the president for all Americans regardless of your political beliefs, what you look like, your religion.”
That must be the “public” position. As we have seen from WikiLeaks, her “private” opinion (or at least that of her “staffers”) is one of complete contempt.
Young people are “fucking dumb”.
Latinos are “needy”.
Trump supporters are “deplorable”.
Black people are “super predators”.
But PUBLICLY, she says “stronger together.”
Blah-frickity-blah blah blah.
Nothing this lady says is the truth.
And (to cinema) she is A HORRIBLE ACTOR!
That’s what convinced me.
I have watched enough people on film to get a feeling about when someone is lying.
Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, Hillary Clinton says is disingenuous.
“I want us to heal our country and bring it together.”
She also wants to (and did) have Democratic Party operatives start violence (as provocateurs) at a Trump rally in Chicago (as per Project Veritas proof).
It’s not likely that that was an isolated incident.
Trump kicks off the truth.
“We have to bring back respect to law enforcement.”
But also, “…fixing and making our inner cities better.”
It takes money. Yes. And jobs. Companies hire. If they can hire.
Clinton’s plan is the globalist plan. Ship jobs overseas and wait for new, better “service” jobs to magically appear. It’s a pipedream. Actually, it’s a scam. THE scam. Clinton’s program could be called Make America Poor Again. She might have a law degree (likely gotten only so she could personally BREAK the law more efficiently), but she doesn’t know shit about business. All she knows is “currying favor”. Her immense wealth was not earned. There was no hard work. She most accurately represents a never-ending cycle of nepotism. Not so with Trump.
But Anderson Cooper wanted to get right to slamming Trump. And so Mr. Cooper, fully “in the tank” for Clinton, pressed: “You described kissing women without consent, grabbing their genitals. That is sexual assault. You bragged that you have sexually assaulted women. Do you understand that?”
Hey Anderson! Do you understood that you almost single-handedly caused Dr. James Tracy to lose his job? Do you understand it was mostly because you shirked your duty as a journalist to investigate the Sandy Hook hoax? Do you understand that? Do you understand that your criminal deception of the American people (under the aegis of gun control) was psychological terrorism? Do you understand that, when it comes out you were fully aware it was a hoax, your career will be over? Do you understand that?
They say Trump doesn’t apologize. Personally, I’ve never heard Hillary Clinton give an apology about Benghazi. Her “apology” was, “…what difference does it make?” Now remember, that was concerning her culpability in the DEATHS of four Americans in Libya. But you want an apology from Trump? You get one (and an honest one):
“Yes, I am very embarrassed by it and I hate it…”
That’s about his sexual bragging which was caught on tape. Nobody died. But he owned up. He was “embarrassed by it” and showed genuine remorse for his own lapse in judgment. About something that happened 11 YEARS AGO!
But Anderson Cooper presses…and presses…and presses.
And that’s why Americans hate the press.
Because they don’t “press” on the important things.
Like Sandy Hook. Or 9/11. They just press buttons…and they have their buttons pressed (these “journalists”)…because they are part of the corrupt system which runs the United States.
They are shitty, soulless propagandists.
Trump: “we have to build up the wealth of our nation”.
Whether the Adam Smith reference was purposeful or not, this is a real businessperson. Unlike Clinton, he didn’t just go to cocktail parties and solicit donations. He wasn’t selling access, he was selling real estate. Big fucking difference!
Hillary has been getting rich as a “civil servant”.
And now her dream was so close in her sights. The ultimate seat of power. The US Presidency. I really believe, however, that she sought the office merely for personal reasons. A power trip? Yes. But a very sinister one. She just wanted to be back in the Oval Office cackling about how she had tricked the American people with her “stronger together” bullshit.
Clinton claims, “…he has also targeted immigrants, African-Americans, Latinos, people with disabilities, POWs, Muslims and so many others.”
Did she really say that?!? Because we have the PROOF that her campaign HATES EVERYBODY…including those demographic groups in that sentence!!!
But Clinton just can’t leave well-enough alone. Like the parrot she is, she twitters out the tired, haggard, liberal eyewash: “…America already is great…”.
Oh really? Well, fine! Why don’t you just step down then, “Madame” Secretary (and go back to whatever brothel you came from)? Yes. Indeed. Why run at all??? If America is already great… Fine. Yes. Obama has done a great job. So you would just lend us that counterintuitively-grating NPR steadiness for another four years–that calm, soothing nonsense, but transformed into “leadership”. Great. Sounds wonderful.
“…we are great because we are good.” Sure… Wait! Did Hillary Clinton just try to occupy the moral high ground? On live, national television??? Good God, what a hypocrite!
At this point it’s appropriate to quote Mr. Trump at length…as he absolutely TORPEDOES Secretary Clinton:
“It’s just words, folks. It’s just words. These words, I have been hearing for many years. I heard them when they were running for the Senate in New York where Hillary was going to bring back jobs to upstate New York and she failed. I’ve heard them where Hillary is constantly talking about the inner cities of our country which are a disaster education-wise, job-wise, safety-wise, in every way possible. I’m going to help the African-Americans, I’m going to help the Latinos, hispanics. I am going to help the inner cities. She has done a terrible job for the African-Americans. She wants their vote and she does nothing.”
This. This is what Americans have been waiting for. Someone with a spine to call out, on national television, the fakery of the ruling political establishment. It was a beautiful thing to hear.
The crap-journalist Raddatz says, “I want to get to audience questions,” but then she presses…presses…brings the narrative back to the lame, inconsequential Trump tape. Which is to say, she didn’t want to get to questions at all!
Raddatz: “This tape is generating intense interest. In just 48 hours it has become the single most talked about story of the entire 2016 election on Facebook with millions and millions of people discussing it on the social network.”
At this point, a third (and real) moderator would have told Raddatz to shut the hell up. But it was one-on-three. Trump against the world! Or rather, Trump against the political establishment…and FOR the world! Clinton wants a no-fly zone over Syria. Like the one she imposed over Libya. The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff has accurately said, “That would mean war…with Russia.” AND THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT HILLARY AND HER CABAL WANT! They are fucking maniacs! No way should she or any of them EVER get anywhere NEAR the White House again!!!
Trump strikes back: “If you look at Bill Clinton, far worse. Mine are words and his was action.”
Little debate about that.
Further: “His words, what he has done to women. There’s never been anybody in the history of politics in this nation that has been so abusive to women.”
Yes, folks…that’s the Clintons. Trump would get into the specifics…about how Hillary got a rapist off. Madame Secretary defended a client (as a lawyer), the rapist, and then later laughed about it. THAT is the lady taking the moral high ground. Appalling…
Raddatz: “Please hold the applause.”
Yes, little lapdog Raddatz had to calm the crowd…BECAUSE THEY WERE APPLAUDING TRUMP!
Hillary’s strategy was not working. All those opposition research dollars, and Trump was defeating it with moxie…and honesty. I’m sorry. I messed up. But the lady across from me is a conniving scoundrel and she has NO leg on which to stand!
Hillary SAYS that she abides by that paragon of virtue Michelle Obama’s words, “When they go low, you go high.,” but the truth is more like, “When they go low, we go lower.”
The transcript indicates there was “[Applause]” at this point, but it was either so weak or Martha Raddatz was so biased as to not make the same little preachy intercession she had made moments earlier.
But I will leave you with the deathblow which occurred not long afterwards.
Clinton: “it’s just awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country.”
Trump: “Because you would be in jail.”
Goddamn, that’s beautiful!
Just who does Donald Trump think he is???
Answer: Sam Walton.
It’s the big, goofy, mesh-backed baseball cap. The ones with the plastic snaps and infinitesimally small corresponding holes. And then the squishy, peaked frontispiece: “Make America great again” –or– (alternately) “Wal-Mart”.
That is the Donald’s costume…out on the campaign trail. It’s bold. Comedic. A bit like George H.W. Bush “shopping” for groceries out among the common folk and being dumbfounded by this whole newfangled barcode scanner.
Yes, Donald Trump: man of the people.
And so who did Rowan Atkinson think he was with Mr. Bean?
Well, that one’s a whole lot harder to pinpoint.
We might know Chaplin. And Sellers.
But then there’s all these other institutions which don’t quite translate outside of Britain…The Goon Show, Dudley Moore, The Goodies…
Just from whence was Atkinson pulling his stuff?
We want to think it’s all original. And perhaps it is.
But influence is unavoidable.
And so with the third and final episode of 1990, Atkinson gave us The Curse of Mr. Bean. [1991 would yield only one episode of the show.]
The curse…hmmm…certainly sounds like an allusion to Sellers’ Clouseau.
Whatever the case may be, Atkinson’s material is all tied together with a very cohesive theme this time: fear.
Fear of the diving board (afraid of heights).
Fear of public nudity or embarrassment (lost his trunks in the pool).
And finally the orgiastic grand guignol of laughter:
fear of movies.
It sounds like a pretentious art school pop album.
For instance, the Talking Heads’ Eno-produced Fear of Music (1979).
But for Bean, the horror was more of the Freddy Krueger type.
Indeed, by December 30, 1990 (this show’s airdate), there had already been five (yes, 5ive) A Nightmare on Elm Street movies.
Churned out of the dream factory like diabolical cotton candy, they appeared in 1984, 1985, 1987, 1988, and 1989. The series then would recommence in 1991. Which begs the question, just what was Freddy Krueger up to in 1986? Laying low? Vacationing? The Caribbean?
To wit, Bean is scared witless while on a date (yes, those things where aspiring romantics “go out”) with the absolutely adorable Matilda Ziegler.
For those of you (like me) who can’t live without pithy character names, Ziegler’s role (like my beloved Enid Coleslaw) is that of Irma Gobb.
And Bean, therefore, is the man-child…the everlasting Gobbstopper [sic].
[Which is to say, Ziegler’s character is a reoccurring one.]
Perhaps we need to look further back to find a precedent for Rowan Atkinson’s Mr. Bean…perhaps out of the world of comedy proper. Perhaps to the Dadaists? I can certainly imagine Mr. Bean dressed as a sort of human tampon à la Hugo Ball…with lobster claw hands. Or maybe Bean with a lobster telephone courtesy of Dalí. Certainly Bean would have a pet lobster to take for walks in the Bois de Boulogne with a ribbon for a leash like Gérard de Nerval.
But we perhaps perhaps perhaps need to look further. To the wry humor of Marcel Duchamp. To the childlike fancy and brilliance of a René Magritte or an Erik Satie. Even, god forbid, the humor of a Mauricio Kagel.
Conductors don’t have heart attacks mid-concert? Not according to Kagel’s Ludwig Van.
Yet Bean never crosses that line of pretension.
He’s never Anthony Braxton’s Quartet for Amplified Shovels.
No, Bean always remains funny.
And so, perhaps, nothing is more revolutionary than comedy.
This kind of comedy.
Absolutely scripted, miniaturist-perfect comedy worthy of Jacques Tati.
In that sense, we might say that Mr. Bean is like Peter Sellers having Charlie-Chaplin-like total control over a production. At least that’s the way it seems.
Perhaps we would be criminally neglecting the director of these first three Bean episodes: John Howard Davies.
But in such comedies, the thing really does speak for itself.
Rowan Atkinson fills every moment of screen time in these gems with his thoroughly inimitable charm.
