Political discourse.

How gun politics are playing out in the Tennessee Senate race Ron Paul endorses Chris McDaniel in Mississippi (because of course), propping the question… does Ron Paul have any juice? Holding the nose in New Jersey for Menendez… Kevin Cramer doubles down in North Dakota on Kavanaugh, to beat Heidi Heitkamp…

Actually not too bad a campaign… such as it is…  he’s out and about where it matters.  And rattling on his message to media outlets.  (Key question: when does he mention the name “larouche”?  Ever?) And more impressively, Polling at 7 percent, depending on the poll.  Though it is worth me

Okay.  One:  How is Juno in the “teen sex comedy” genre?  And, two, it’s fascinating to see Chris Elliott identified with “Cabin Boy”. On this Alex Jones swipe piece:  “John McCain is the leader of the Democratic Party” and “Robert Mueller is a demon” are (if partisa

The only thing I know for certain… my only firm opinion coming out of the great big Kavanaugh hearings … Dianne Feinstein sucks. I think I can float one principle here: the nature of a last minute eleventh hour “October Surprise” revelation of even the most credible and heinous of accusations of sexu

I really wish I had noted something about Maria Butina at the time her story about being an alleged honeypot for the Russians in ensnaring the NRA and NRA backed politicos… … which was that the story her lawyer professed on NPR… of a maybe naive Russian right wing populist Putin lover who wanted to […

Russia regulated dueling Voting on bunches of bills at once Weirdly enough, the two Mississippi senate races are getting some media attention.  Why James Carville is bothering with this one, I don’t know.  Why George Will is giving Mike Espy a chance, I don’t know.

Now I’m just a white guy with not much interest in hip hop or rap, but I do have one observation to make here… Apparently taking exception to has been Eminem versus whomever MGK… Rap beefs are, as a rule, bad. The name is corny to write and even cornier to say out loud. Compared […]

The silly season of the Texas senate race between Ted Cruz and Beto O’Rourke. Why was the guy sitting behind Trump removed? The history of the term “Resistance“. I am reminded by an 80s Jay Leno on Mort Sahl versus Lenny Bruce when I see this. Iran’s political fall-out over the Nuclear deal pull-out

“Was wearing nikes.  And suddenly realized I was in a conservative state.” And so goes the politicization of every damned thing anywhere.  And it becomes ironic, that conservative and Republican outlets go about linking to some left or liberal outlets pointing out the strange dichotomy here: leaving aside that

Alan Watts, The Book, 74-75, 1966 A Hindu treatise on the art of government, the Arthashastra, lays down the rules of policy for the complete tyrant, describing the orginization of his palace, his court, and his state in such fashion as to make Machiavelli seem a liberal. The first rule is that he must trust no one, [R

Worth flagging. Two long running, Obama era, investigations of two very popular Republican Congressmen were brought to a well publicized charge, just ahead of the Mid-Terms, by the Jeff Sessions Justice Department. Two easy wins now in doubt because there is not enough time. Good job Jeff…… Yeah.  It was round

Years ago, round about 2001 or 2002, I’d hear Alex Jones appear with Clyde Lewis and ramble on about the building of internment — or maybe even concentration — camps — across the empty space of the American West, where the big THEY will in the near future be holding patriotic dissidents of the New [&

Listening to the left wing celebration on Democracy Now on the victory of Andrew Gillum in the Florida Democratic gubernatorial primary wearies me.  First of all, we start with the presumption of guilt — unexplained — on the part of the Republican nominee with the following comment… We’ve got to work ha

At around the time of Barack Obama’s inauguration, the still alive presidents did a photo op where … fascination. And I’m imagining in the future, where this photo-op is re-enacted.  In 2009, we saw Jimmy Carter separated from everyone else.  I’m imagining Donald Trump will be in the same basic spo

Upon the passing of David Foster Wallace, a lone Rolling Stone article covering the 2000 presidential campaign of John McCain was spruced into a tidy little volume and put out for sale.  And, there it was… a long magazine article published into a book. I suppose now, upon the death of the subject matter — John

Is it just me, or is the latest utterances from President Donald Trump — He doesn’t like the “flippers“… — round about where we have an enforcer standing in the back of the courthouse as a gang member / drug dealer / whatever is being prosecuted, wearing a “Stop Snitchin‘̶

I’m looking over one of the latest offerings from Archie Comics.  So, what we have with this series, as is everything published by comic book publishers these days fit for instant graphic novel… “Betty and Veronica — Vixens” it’s… urm… the girls form a biker gang in order to

Meet the anarchist Senate candidate… a contradiction in terms? I don’t believe him.  I know of my anarchists, they don’t run for political office.  That’s the job of those damned liberals, those damned reformists captive to the system, not seeking to overturn everything.

This year, de la Fuente has run in U.S. Senate primaries in nine states without achieving success in any of them. So far in 2018, de la Fuente has been blown out in Senate races in California, Washington, Hawaii, Vermont and Minnesota. He is running in the Wyoming primary this week and in Florida next […]

“I think particularly right now, people feel so aggrieved and crazed and powerless that they’re picking the wrong battles,” Mr. Groening said. Yeah, I’d alter the thought just a tad, in explaining what they think the line between the characters of Apu and the ground-swell of Trump characters are.  And then come

Thy local affiliate runs back to back episodes of The Goldberts every weeknight, a strategum that makes sense for a sitcom that’d been on for — maybe nine years — but for one that has a total of 4 years built up for second run syndication makes for a very quick turning.  So I believe […]

So.  A special election in Ohio, for  the privilege of serving the district for the duration of the summer.  Trump claims victory, not necessarily for the Republican candidate who likely squeaked out a win, but for himself.  The tea-leaves from  the result point to Democratic victories in November, and you go round loo

So.  What did facebook and other social media outfits just do with Alex Jones?  Answer: something a lot less than banning him.  They limited his platform in various ways.  In a sense, big whoop. Still, it’s an odd rush, and a scary one, I’ve been noting in the Huffington Post in relation to “how they [

The future of political assassinations comes in drone-form. So says President Maduro, not necessarily the most reliable of witnesses:  There has been an attempt to assassinate me. I have no doubt that this all points to the extreme right in Venezuela, in alliance with the right in Colombia, and that Colombian President Ju
