LIONEL PODCAST: Awash in Calumny the Constitutionalists Soldier On

Behold our priorities. And marvel at the set-up. Think about it. The guy’s toast over ____ (your favorite pudendal reference here). I mean it’s beautiful. And I hope you saw Dr. Paul’s valedictory to Congress. ‘Twas stellar, insightful, elegant. The gravamen of his indictment was referring to them as psychopathic authoritarians. How beautiful is that? Being an American has never been more fun.

Did someone say “video”? Well, too bad.

LIONEL PODCAST: Dave’s Honeypot, Benghazi Diverted, P-tards That Hoist & Goober Prompterbot Stares Narcotized

Not buying it. Oh, sure, that he’s an idiot. Fine. I know that. But the timing?! Come on, Sparky. Wake up. Look this is the issue. This is where the fighters are. Look, look at the map. This is the issue not Petraeus, though he’s a schmuck and his ouster is certainly warranted. But be not diverted. Look, this is Cyrenaica. Specifically the Benghazi-Darnah-Tobruk corridor. This is al Qaeda. These are the rebels. This is where they originate. That’s the issue! But it would only make sense to provide a framed analysis there. But that would take time and effort and knowledge. Goober Prompterbot reporting for duty!

I sound like a broken record. No, I am a broken record. I’ve preached this since the Ides of March in 2011. As has the world.

Please review this most thorough compendium of the subject. It’s truly remarkable and worth perusing.

The Hindustan Times reported last year:

“There is no question that al Qaeda’s Libyan franchise, Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, is a part of the opposition,” Bruce Riedel, former CIA officer and a leading expert on terrorism, told Hindustan Times.

It has always been Qaddafi’s biggest enemy and its stronghold is Benghazi.

Now do you see? Please nod. Hello? Anyone in there?

Tada! And now, something that might re-inspire a faith in the mainstream media. Prithee.

LIONEL PODCAST: Post-election “Freudenschade” Infects My Soul. And I Called It From Day One.

Deliriously happy for reasons they know not. I’m still unclear what the idea is. Try this on for size? 10 dire consequences of Obama’s re-election victory. So many folks I know in two categories: the insanely morose and the groundlessly giddy. Both are clueless as to the bases of their reason. The myth of the left-right paradigm in all its glory. But never forget who lie recessed and virtually invisible.

This radical Right fairy tale, which is now an accepted folk myth in many groups in America, pictured the recent history of the United States, in regard to domestic reform and in foreign affairs, as a well-organized plot by extreme Left-wing elements…. This myth, like all fables, does in fact have a modicum of truth (by becky). There does exist, and has existed for a generation, an international Anglophile network which operates, to some extent, in the way the Radical right believes the Communists act. In fact, this network, which we may identify as the Round Table Groups, has no aversion to cooperating with the Communists, or any other group, and frequently does so. I know of the operation of this network because I have studied it for twenty years and was permitted for two years, in the early 1960’s, to examine its papers and secret records. I have no aversion to it or to most of its aims and have, for much of my life, been close to it and to many of its instruments. I have objected, both in the past and recently, to a few of its policies… but in general my chief difference of opinion is that it wishes to remain unknown, and I believe its role in history is significant enough to be known. — Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World in Our Time. 1966, New York: Macmillan, 1348 pages.

Turd blossom. Not exactly prescient and vatic, eh, Mr. Blossom? As you know, Florida finished counting its votes Saturday, giving Obama a 332 to 206 final margin in the electoral college.

My take. I have said and new as did anyone with two neurons that it would be Hope for the second term, the deuce.

The compendium. ​The box set. I’ve uploaded a slew of new commentaries. Choc-full of choc.

LIONEL PODCAST: You Have the Right to Defend Your Family, Especially During Times of Disaster! And It’s Hopey for the Deuce.

The heuristic. The most incredible reaction was to that of the ability to self-protect. ‘Twas truly amazing. With all that happened since ​Sandy you’d think that folks would just intuitively understand that self-protection and preservation were not things or concepts that required explication. But as you can imagine, whenever anyone so much as even hints at self-protection especially via a handgun, the reactions are as predicted.

Vatic psephology. Hopey will win the deuce. And nothing would have been different had Mittens won. That’s the nature of the beast and the game. The left-right paradigm is but an illusion. Two sides of the same coin. That simple. That basic.

LIONEL PODCAST: Hurricane Sandy Devastates New York & The Tri-State Area. And I Should Know.

Surreal? That’s putting it mildly. RT provides yet again superb documentation.

The Financial District. This is mind-boggling. It looks like war-torn Fallujah after we brought democracy to the Iraqis. It’s near Wall Street and the Financial District. On three: WOW!

The eeriest of eerie. Lower Manhattan. South of 40th Street. No lights, no life. An abandoned movie set. Horrific.

Herein a discussion inter alia:

  • Personal experience.
  • Observations and musings.
  • Media coverage.
  • Ted Baxter agog and amok.
  • The seeming rationality of the prepper. They don’t seem as crazy anymore, now do they?
  • Second Amendment, anyone? Especially as to hoards of looters, flash robbing and organizing on Twitter.
  • Cue the HAARP, angel.

LIONEL PODCAST: Thank Gawd! Mother PIX is Back on Cablevision!

They’re here. Back again.

Finally! Here’s the story.

PIX 11 is back on Cablevision.

Tribune Broadcasting, WPIX’s parent company, released the following statement Friday evening

“We’re pleased to announce that Tribune Broadcasting has reached an agreement with Cablevision for the rebroadcast of PIX11. We thank our viewers for their loyalty and continued support. You can look forward to the return of your favorite CW shows and top-quality local programming, including award-winning news, political coverage, traffic, weather and live sports.”

The agreement also covers Tribune stations in Hartford, Denver and Philadelphia.

“We’re looking forward to bringing them the top quality local and national programming they expect, including award-winning news, political coverage, traffic, weather and live sports, including NFL Football and the World Series, ” Tribune said.
Founded in 1948, WPIX is an integral part of life in New York. PIX has entertained and informed generations of New Yorkers through its award-winning news department and its entertainment as well as holiday programming, including “The Yule Log,” which PIX introduced in 1966. WPIX is now the flagship station of the CW network, carrying such hit shows as “Vampire Diaries” and “Gossip Girl.” PIX also televises Mets games.

This is tremendous relief to many of our loyal PIX viewer family members. I know that I and my colleagues felt a tremendous sense of elation mixed with relief upon hearing the news last night.

Brilliance. Exhibit A.

In fact mention PIX to anyone and they’ll mention this: the most cutting-edge example of programming ever. Ever! I still marvel at how masyerful this seemingly simple concept was and is.

And this is what you might have been missing. Behold. And we apologize in advance.

LIONEL PODCAST: GMOs Are Poison. They Will Kill You. Now, Any Questions?

​Vegans, GMOs and food. Or something. ​This subject should consume every inch of your being, and Jeffrey Smith’s Seeds of Deception will freak you out and change your life. It did me and mine. Say no to GMOs. Trust me.

And speaking of horrifying video. This inexplicable catalog of horror also deserves a watch. But lactating mothers and people with pacemakers should consult their physicians first. No, I’m serious. I start binge thinking and the next thing you know, all hell breaks loose.

LIONEL PODCAST: Cow Chips & Freedom

Have you ever seen Beaver? The epicenter. Beaver. In the land of the Pawnee: Uukuhuúwa. It’s as American as overeating and excessive tanning. I know something about cow chip tossing. I was a two-year champ at the Plant City Strawberry Festival.  I don’t want to brag but can you blame me? In this podcast I share a number of deep thoughts, viz. my absolute loathing of adult women who attempt to experience the fleeting feeling of beauteousness through donning a Halloween. It’s a mélange, a pastiche of mentation. My favorite things. To celebrate life it’s imperative you focus in on that which may seem simple but is awash in complexity. Is that clear. I hope so.

Video sole mio. My sunshine. Tom Jefferson note “[b]ut friendship is precious, not only in the shade, but in the sunshine of life, and thanks to a benevolent arrangement the greater part of life is sunshine.” Enjoy this life. Just avoid the treacherous and miserable.

LIONEL PODCAST: The Greatest Metaphor Ever. Period.

Follow me. I’ve got you covered. The coast is clear. Cover me, Luke, while I make it to the wagon. Over and out, Ma. (That was an outro valedictory from a great radio personality years ago. It never ceases to crack me up.) I have no idea of its relevance but it makes me smile. The notion of taking cover. Taking protective action. Avoiding the onslaught of an aggressive government. Duck and cover. Avoiding tyranny.

Do you see anything odd here? ​Every thought, idea, name it is hand-crafted. Artisanal. Sounds like a beer. That’s it. My commentaries. Beer like. Here’s to good friends. (Wasn’t that the Löwenbräu ad?)

LIONEL PODCAST: The Coolness of the Label. The Reality of the Theory’s Rigours.

The brutality of naked ideology.​ Tarpley’s certainly a critic. Here’s a great disquisition/indictment on the subject.The cartoon speaks to the libertarian brutality and Ayn Randian survival of the species. I know and understand the lure and pull of the Libertarian label, but be not mistaken the practical application of much of its doxy is cold blooded and brutal. That being said … .

The horror of HD serialization of thought. There are some fine examples of cinema verity. And not cinéma vérité. What’s the difference? What’s the difference between a fractal and Richard Deacon? See? Look run through done if these at your earliest convenience. They’re brutally great. True. No, honest.
