TURN YOUR HEAD AND COUGH: HERE IT COMES, SPARKY!

#IStandWithJudgeJeanine. I know you heard the news that Fox News last week preempted Sixth Avenue’s answer to Learned Hand, Judge Jeanine Pirro, from her weekly show for reasons I’ll and you’ll never know or understand. And she was replaced, er, preempted for reruns of “Bowling for Sportshirts” or some Gawd awful remnant and retread ostensibly after her not-so-well-received comments anent and regarding newly-minted Congressperson Ilhan Omar. Seems that JJ’s quips and witticisms as to the compatibility of what Ms. Pirro viewed as Sharia with a member of Congress’s allegiance to the Constitution were not well-received. So what, I say. This while quislings Shep Smith and Judge Nap crank out interminable anti-Trump blather daily on what was Roger Ailes’ creation. Why? I’ll tell you why. Because Fox News sold out. Big time. The Mouse is in the house, kids. ABC . . . Disney . . . Iger. The same TV Boeotians who shitcanned Roseanne FROM HER OWN SHOW and kept on board that vile and despicable James Gunn, whose Twitter feed could be used as Exhibit A in a symposium on improper, unhealthy and sick child predation fantasies. That’s right. The not-so-wonderful world of Disney has reinstated sicko slime slug James Gunn as the writer-director of Guardians of the Galaxy 3. No, he stays on. In fact he was theoretically shelved for a bit while Disney pretended that he was 86’d. But it was all a con. He was never jettisoned. Not for a moment. For some reason this sicko gets a pass whilst TV legend Roseanne gets the heave-ho FROM HER OWN SHOW! So, how demented were his Tweets, you ask. Google them on your own time. But not on an empty stomach.
 
Gawd, how I loathe them. Words cannot describe how delicious I find elite Hollyweird nincompoops caught in the delicious dragnet of one of the most far-reaching, dastardly yet incomprehensibly stupid scams ever. Well, maybe not that stupid in retrospect when you consider how long it’s been going on and at what levels. But here are a few questions that particularly piqued my interest. Next to who were the geniuses who thought they’d get by with photoshopping and superimposing their miserable seeds’ mugs on the bodies of actual athletes actually performing.
 
Why wasn’t William H. Macy charged but Felicity ux. was? Macy wasn’t charged with anything. Yet. From the looks of things it seems almost shameless not to include this feller in the snare. I mean, the feds allegedly have him on tape assenting to and ratifying the conspiracy to violate a veritable endless litany of Title 18 offenses. And not one charge?! Now, the possibilities and reasons for his separate treatment are multifold. This may in some wise act almost as an analog to the innocent spouse provision. (I said analog for good reason.) He may also have provided incredible evidence against and anent others in return for charges not being filed, all of which seems improbable beyond description. The chance to claim the scalp of a bona fide Hollyweird big shot is something most prosecutors couldn’t and wouldn’t pass up for anything. I mean, who can claim notoriety better? The guy who nails Jerry Lundegaard or the one who bags Lynette Scavo. Think about it, Sparky.
 
Clawback as another analogy. The phrase and concept refers to a bankruptcy law provision where the trustee voids transactions thus returning property back for the benefit of unsecured creditors. The context and application I speak of is as follows. Say that it’s determined that a college admission was fraudulently obtained, say further that that degree or matriculation record is expunged, quashed and killed. Assume arguendo further that by the time the fraud is discovered, the con kid has completed law school or medical school or any endeavor thus requiring initial and honest and actual and legitimate acceptance into a baccalaureate degree program. Are the postgrad degrees clawed back? Undone, stripped, revoked? Is the subsequent professional career void ab initioin that it was never legally or properly obtained? And if so how far back can and could authorities go? Not to criminally charge, mind you, but administratively?  
 
When minor players sing and heads roll. Those of us who’ve been in the criminal law trenches have seen all too often seemingly insignificant pinches turn into the critical thread pulled that destroys the entire fabric of the racketeering and criminal organization. One person, one underling, some guy or gal who figures they’re not going to be sent up the river indeterminately while some snotty, elitist Hollyweird big shot escapes the long arm of the law. And sings. And, perhaps, composes. And that’s what we’re seeing now. “Sources” say that some of the biggest, and I mean BIGGEST, names in all areas of tech and business and entertainment are belting out the hits. It’s suspected and expected that the feds will show that they’ve been involved in these scams for years and what you’re about to see will be a cosmic juridical bloodbath. And good. ‘Bout time.
 
Nothing new. Look, college admissions have been skewed, screwed and spewed (no, I don’t know what that means either) when it comes to athletic scholarships and the like. We’ve heard of sports stars have been recruited for college teams, kids who can’t even read their diplomas. And throw into the mix parents who just blatantly buy off the school through under or over the table “contributions” to a host of charities and building funds. Oh, by the by, you’ll love this. “Institutional Advancement” and “Transactional Philanthropy” are two terms of art that crooked colleges, especially the vaunted Ivy League, use to euphemize blatant payoffs and “no show” acceptance. These guys are straight from the LCN. What utter shite!
 
But this is different. What we saw here in the latest #CollegeAdmissionsScandal defies anything that was even remotely conceivable. Truly Bernie Madoff quality graft and slime here. Monumental in its level of corruption. Not to mention, when have you ever seen such lowlife cons as some of these idiot brats, Numero Uno being Olivia Jade, Loughlin’s spawn? This one reinvents chutzpah, balls and balderdash. No remorse, regret or clue. Look, enough with the obvious. But I’d give anything to be front row for her parents’ sentencing when this little darling’s videos are played. These revealing Kodak moments when these Snowflake dunderheads brag how they gamed and ginned the system. How they really don’t care about school but wanted to just party. Oh, they’ll have plenty of time to party now. The college dorm influencer on house arrest. And, good question, why weren’t they, the adult college students, charged with anything? No, great question.

THE CIRCUS CAME TO TOWN WHILE DENUCLEARIZATION WAS IGNORED

There are few things more dangerous than taking one’s position or fate for granted. Next to making the case for Judy Tenuta scoring a Nobel. Anyhoo. Look, overconfidence is lethal. When a movement forgets how it got there and what the issues were and the climate was that enabled its momentum in the first place, that spells certain doom. The movement sputters. Slows. Grinds to a halt. I’ve seen it happen. Just look at Judy Tenuta. But I digress.

That’s precisely what I fear anent #Election2020 and President Trump. I fear that Americans will feel that Trump’s reelection is in the bag and in the cards and that there’s nothing to worry about. That when any rational, sensible voter looks at what he’s done, certainly Trump will be the only possible consideration. Right? He’s a shoo-in. That was Hillary’s problem and mistake (of many). And if you think that Trump’s hand-picked coterie of advisers are up to snuff, that makes one of us. I love that man and the cause and our republic and I know what I’m talking about. Maybe ex-Fox News honcho Bill Shine’s sayonarawas the hint that he’s wised up. I trust that media whiz Brad Parscale will unload and unleash his genius at the critical moment that will render the Dems and their presumptive candidate, Creepy Joe Biden, paralyzed, immobilized and crushed. Dear Gawd, I hope. I trust that Americans will understand that the level of prosperity and record unemployment across all demos they now enjoy is due to the political muscle and know-how of DJT. I trust a lot of things, er, I mean I hope a lot of things.

But, yes, these are fascinating times as times always are. And no, this is not the end of civilization as we know it and, no, we aren’t on the brink of civil war. But we are facing new cataclysms and fissures and revolutions within the political systems of our republic. Just look at how we aren’t even remotely conversant with actual terms of art anent policies, politics and platforms. Take socialism. Please. What you’re hearing spouted and pushed ain’t socialism. What, you say? Let me ‘splain.

Somewhere post-Bernie, nescient American commentators confused Democratic-Socialist for Socialist. I mean, who’s really surprised? The words are similar and we’ve this strained idea of what economic theories are compared and contrasted with totalitarian regimes and the like. Maybe. Neither he nor AOC remotely represent anything socialist. Trust me. What they promote is welfare state capitalism. Now, stop. Did you just read and hear what I said? Do not move on without understanding what that means. This caca del toroand the proliferation of such by Bernie et AOC and these seemingly endless polls stating that Gen-Z’s (of which I don’t believe) are leaning towards socialism miss the boat. “Free stuff ≠ socialism.” Remember that.

And speaking of monumental ignorance, FNC’s Judge Jeanine knows as much about Shariah as AOC knows about supersymmetry. What was she thinking with her latest protestations? Does she think Roger is still alive? Has she forgotten that Disney controls her puppet strings? The days of Fox as we knew it during Ailes is over. Got that, Tucker? If you think Fox’s 6thAvenue fortress is the Presidio of conservative protection, you’re out of your mind and off your meds. It’s all changing drastically. Everything from top to bottom and what I fear is that some folks don’t seem to get it.

Even the once relatively rational DNC seems to be outdone and outmaneuvered by new cliques and covens of neo-Dems. Ilhan Omar dusted off every classic anti-Israel, anti-Semitic trope and what did they do, the Dems, that is? Nada. Nancy Pelosi, who’s lost all control of her partyand caucus, along with Chuckles Schumer agreed upon some watered down something or other that addressed generic thoughts and ideas anent and regarding “hate,” a word that has been diluted to such levels never thought imaginable. What’s happened? These are new time and new players and a new country and I don’t believe most have noticed such. What was then ain’t current now, Sparky.

And with that, let me return to what POTUS must do immediatelyto win again in 2020. First, forego and abandon any ideas of debating anyone. Second, starve the #FakeNewsMedia of ad revenue by avoiding said dates. Third, focus on town halls versus anachronistic and otiose debates. Third, TrumpTV — a privately-owned 24/7 accessible video platform that allows voters and opponents access to what’s new, planned and pertinent as to myriad issues of note. Fourth, boycott all #FakeNewsMedia by any and all White House personnel, advisers, staff and the like. And finally, MAGAzine (coined by others, note attribution) that highlights FLOTUS Melania. A full-color, glossy masterpiece that will sell out in seconds, privately funded with proceeds directed to a charity of note, all in compliance with election laws and the like.

This is war. War plain and simple. “The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting,” spake Sun Tzu. It’s real and happening. Now.

Until next time, patriot.

THE HERMENEUTICS OF A COLOSSAL REPUBLIC’S DECLINE

It’s time to review some of the basics. The rudiments. The essential and abecedarian elements of that which every and any sentient and woke patriot must know. It’s not about party or labels or the usual schmaltz. It’s about attending to the issues that matter and that count. Issues and causes and stories that impact our lives and us directly. Issues that, sadly I report, virtually no one in office or in the usual fake news bowels are addressing or even dealing with remotely or otherwise. You won’t hear of this on MSM corporate news platforms (right or left) and you certainly won’t hear any of the usual suspects (right or left) even broaching the subject matter. It’s too hot, too controversial and too true for their tastes. Don’t kid yourself, my fellow patriot, the media left and right are cons. They’re a work. An angle. A vaudevillian troupe. An opera buffa. The cult of personality meets Ted Baxter. The only thing going for us now is the greatest President in my lifetime, Donald Trump. Period.

Now let’s begin. But, ask yourself if you’re able to handle this. Seriously.

The left-right paradigm is dead and beyond irrelevant.The notion that there are identifiable and palpable and tenable differences between parties is a joke. A bad joke. Left-Right. Conservative-Liberal. Two sides of the same coin, contrived and arranged and orchestrated by brilliant people who long ago tapped into the intramural and provincial politics that Americans so enjoy. Trump, I’m happy to report, is a delicious anomaly. He redefines and recalibrates the political fulcrum and resets the pendulum and none of the Deep State [DS] curs and hounds have the slightest clue as to what to do. This was a man no one saw coming and no one could have ever predicted would be so destructive to the status quo and the “business as usual” crooks and felons who inhabit our beloved republic. He’s the real deal, my friend. And as real a deal he is, sadly neither he nor either party nor any of the bobblehead media poltroons can go nigh certain subjects near and dear to my heart. Here are but a few inter alia.

Vaccines.You have to be in a coma or the victim of mind control (perhaps administered via vaccine) to have missed the multitudes of research, reports and data anent the (at least) need to investigate the causal connection between some of today’s strains of vaccines and resultant (putative) spectrum disorders and autism. In fact, POTUS proudly announced his understandable concerns. It needs to be readdressed. This is not an indictment of immunology, inoculations or the mechanics of disease suppression, this is called research. It is the very real need to investigate whether yet again innocent Americans have been victimized and damaged by a pharmaceutical industry that has shown virtually no interest through the years in keeping us safe from myriad drugs, potions, witches brews, concoctions and, yes, vaccines. Just look at how even suggesting that something might be amiss generates frenetic overreaction and censorship. What’s the problem here? What is everyone so afraid of?

5G horrors.Excuse me, but have we lost our sentient minds by not so much as questioning what being bathed in and by 5G towers — already here, by the by — means? Do a cursory review in various periodicals and literature and you’ll be slammed by the suspicions and (warranted) fears enunciated and explicated by numbers of experts and industry watchdogs. If you’re going to read or watch one introductory piece as to and anent the potential health hazards that 5G represents start with this: Dr. Sharon Goldbergtestifying at Michigan’s 5G Small Cell Tower Legislation Hearing October 4, 2018. Just watch her testimony and ask if perhaps we’re from some other parallel universe that considers this important. Because no one’s talking about it other than the singularly sentient. Just last week I was stuck in a green room and had to endure Newt Gingrich on Fox News laud the magic of 5G technology and how it would prove indispensable to autonomous driving contraptions. The anchor nodded almost hypnotically as Newt waxed incoherent as to the marvels of new citizen radiation saturation. And not to be outdone, President Trump last month tweeted that he can’t wait for 5G and . . . wait . . . 6G technology instanter. The man’s still greatbut needs some pointed remedial instruction as to these horror towers.

China and BRICS.Look, I’m all for cinching down on a ravenous China via tariff applications but you have got to be kidding me if you have no fears or concerns as to the enormity of what this surveillance dystopia means to us. China is an Orwellian Disney World. Coupled with BRICS coalition partnerships and methinks we’ve a chimera that knows no equal in the annals of modern times. And remember, they’re socialist or “socialist with Chinese characteristics.” Not bad for a country after 70 years post-Mao revolution. The next time some armchair economist throws you the usual line about the horrors of socialism as an instrument of economic disaster, remind him of China. Not that I’m hankering for a Beijing pied-à-terre, mind you, but listen carefully to anyone who suggests for a moment that socialism necessarily spells economic doom.

Geoengineeringand (what you might incorrectly call) chemtrails.Dear Gawd, just look up. Look at those gauzy, hazy streaks that hashtag the sky that were never here before. Listen to me, they are not contrails or water vapor or innocent exhaust. You don’t have to be an aeronautical genius to know that. So why won’t anyone, and I mean anyone, pretend to be remotely interested in at least calling out the obvious? What the hell are they spraying? Even Moonbat the Ditz AOC never mentions a word. Don’t you think Solar Radiation Managementwould pique her capricious interest? No, you see what this has been subsumed under is the rubric of the dread conspiracy theory. I even had a local TV weatherman (I know, who waits until 6 PM for the weather to be read by a guy in a bad suit?) still confuse water vapor and true contrails with geoengineering. Look, I’m wasting my breath. Or finger tips. Alas.

Robots and AI. Whenever the subject arises folks get all goofy over the idea of some cute little R2-D2 looking out for them and keeping them company. Some new hi-tech pal. Or they’ll snicker and snigger over the notion of sex robots that channels into their juvenescent mindset. But listen and listen well, patriot. It’s not robots you should focus on but the AI part. The intelligence that they claim is artificial. For now. This is mindboggling, Sparky. And the implications I know have not been considered by anyone and I don’t expect them to be. It’s who we are.

The bloody wall! Where is it? How’s it coming? What’s the level of completion? When will it be done? Hello? Anyone home? The wall. Remember the wall? (Help.)

Hillary’s still not indicted. So long as the Oven Mitt Fashionista remains free, liberty is one step closer to extinction for every day hers remains intact. Dig? This weekend she was traipsing about and parading as some expert in civil rights as Selma was remembered. Good Gawd, Mr. President, have you know pull? Have your DOJ charge her with something, anything. Something that involves a mugshot. Nothing fancy. No Gitmo (though #OvenMitt4Git is kinda catchy), no treason. Just treat her like an ordinary criminal and thief which is precisely what she is. Now, sir.

Grid fears and EMP cataclysms. The day we get hit with a massive Carrington-Class Event or solar superstorm haymaker (natural or deliberate) this place will go into first class, full-tilt apeshit meltdown. You know it and I know it. And the level of calamity that such will inspire is inexplicable and immane. We are not equipped to handle it, deal with it or remotely address same. Imagine every ATM, computer, TV, appliance, light, air conditioner or heater, refrigerator — get the picture — out. Indefinitely. Darkness. No order. Mayhem, looting. Riots, anyone? Are you listening? What’s in play? What’s the drill? Infrastructure, anyone?

Social media recategorized as a utility.Imagine if your cellphone carrier suspended your phone line because you made some anti-vaxxer comment during a conversation. You’d scream bloody murder and deservedly so and you would claim censorship that requires and warrants immediate attention, anddeservedly so. Why? Because mobile phone lines are in effect a utility. Think electricity. Power. Well, what do you think search engines are or social media platforms? Don’t give me this business about their being some privately-owned amenity that you voluntarily engaged in and with. Social media are critical to business, expression and are in effect communication utilities that require protection and legislation to prevent your being bounced or tossed because you dared utter the wrong conspiracy theory.

Human trafficking and domestic violence. Nobody’s saying anything and I think we know why. The level of sex trafficking involving women, men and children, the degree of systematic and systemic predation at the highest level and tiers make some folks rather loath to howl about the problem. From Bergoglio and the Vatican to Weinstein to Nxivm to Hollywood to the halls of Congress to Epstein and the Lolita Express, the levels of sin and abuse are incomprehensible so a lot of folks figure that everyone might be best advised to just lay off the subject matter lest they inspire further inquiry as to the depths and degrees of depravity that have been heretofore honored.

Until next time, patriot.

COUNTDOWN TO WHAT WAS CRITICAL THINKING

Greetings Truth Warrior, Patriot and Sentient Sentry:
 
I trust this finds you and your family sound, hale, well and in fighting trim.

Prolegomenon. Twenty years ago today the impeachment trial of William Jefferson Clinton began. Rapist, philanderer, liar and co-Defendant and accomplice to consummate crook Hillary Rodham Felon, the Oven Mitt Fashionista. Notice that I specified the impeachment trial. Quick. How many Americans think that impeachment means immediate removal? By the tone of the subject matter that I’m forced to endure, I’m thinking 85-90%. And here’s the best part. The election for POTUS is next year — 666 days to be exact. I know. 666. Do the math, Anton LeVay. They can’t wait until next year to try and oust him. Why? Because they know he’s going to win reelection. That simple.

America’s Trump. Last evening my wife and I saw a musical review of sorts with one performer who shall remain nameless. Let’s just call him Marc Cohn of “Walking in Memphis” fame. During the set where he appeared with the Blind Boys of Alabama (try assembling a modern-day version with that name today, Buckaroo) he looked at the beauteous heterogeneity and diversity of those on the stage and marveled at its, well, diversity. He remarked that it was not reminiscent of Trump’s America. It received tepid applause, a pathetic smattering by any and all accounts. And it hit me. No, Mr. Cohn, it’s not reminiscent of Trump’s America, it’s more like POTUS is America’s Trump. Cohn had it backwards. Remember that the next time you refrain from stabbing some Trump Derangement Syndrome clown in the heart with a pencil. Ahem.

You can’t make this stuff up. Newly-minted Freshman Representative loon, the off-the-wall Rashida Tlaib declared Thursday night that the installed Democratic majority in the House will “go in there and impeach the motherfucker,” hours after her debut. Classy, huh? She speaks like that anent our POTUS. And a note to mainstream media types: Stop with the abbreviations, editing and sanitizing. We know what she said. Openly and clearly. MOTHERFUCKER. Not Motherf—er. Stop it. We’re adults (technically) and know exactly what was said. This vile coprolalic low-rent obstructionist is just what the doctor ordered to drive a wedge between and among Pelosicrats trying to hide behind the myth of the left-right paradigm. Meanwhile Alexandra Ocrazio-Kotex must be climbing the walls seeing that her pole position of Democrat front runner and cutesy tyro is being sidestepped and diverted by the foul-mouthed #RavingRashida. It gets even more delicious, sports fans. Haystacks Jerry Nadler, whose House Judiciary Committee would be handling any potential impeachment investigations, is trying to tamp down the fire that the rabble-rouser ranting raving ranks have been encouraging. Remember, these are the adults, the actual pols. Those who’ve successfully negotiated the political labyrinth throughout their lengthy and seemingly interminable tenures. They know how the game’s played and who’s in charge. Try telling institutional heritage monied Dem contributors how Nancy and her crew have not been able to control a few paltry poltroon pols.
 
Transgendered, transcontinental, transmogrified, transcendently transitioned whatever. The degree of insanity that’s been inspired from the complete and utter collapse of reason is monumentally off the charts. You know, if I didn’t know better, I’d swear that someone somewhere somehow is trying to shutter and scuttle everything that’s remotely associated with rational thinking and the fundamental basics of family, gender and sexuality. There’s not anyone reading this now who truly believes that gays and transgenders should be shelved or jailed or removed to some psych ward. Those days are over. We know great folks of every conceivable racial permutation and sexual orientation from straight, gay, bi to quadrisexual (those who’ll do anything for a quarter . . . it’s an old joke but may in some circles actually reflect the truth more than one could imagine). But virtue signaling crackpots are going out of their way to strain the levels and parameters of credulity to artificially muddle and muddy the sexuality waters by refusing to acknowledge that there’s any certainty as to chromosomal verity. Sex and gender, I understand the difference. What one feels and believes often overrule what “nature” has stamped. But to go so far as to suggest that no gender can or may or should be assigned redefines ludicrous. To suggest, as many states now do, that you can leave off gender on birth certificates, not because of any legitimate and medically recognized uncertainty (which on occasion happens), but through the introduction of a socio-political statement. What we’re now seeing are people deliberately refusing to recognize genitourinary obviousness as a statement of cultural inclusion, to be pudendally and penile posh. It’s sad to say and worse to note that so much valuable time to understand and coalesce has been lost entirely by those who’ve co-opted and kidnapped the issue and now hold it ransom.
 
And now a word about the Golden Globes. Bollocks.
 
RBG’s MIA. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg I fear is not as well and on the rebound as the corrupt Ted Baxter media would suggest. I happen to admire her in many respects for what she represents and has accomplished. Notwithstanding that some of her decisions have not been exactly consistent with my constitutional worldview. And how the faux hipster wannabe has embraced all that is Ruthie is yet again an example of faddish obeisance to the pop star du jour. Most of these folks can’t spell Bader Ginsburg much less understand what she’s written, held and holds to this day. But the corporate news media distort like there’s no tomorrow. They still repeat and never report. It’s just a matter of fact that when it comes to the truth, American corporate propaganda sockpuppet news media are not to be believed, followed, trusted or even noticed. Their days are over, their time finished.

THE LIONEL NATION NEWSLETTER — 26 NOVEMBER 2018

“History is a set of lies agreed upon.” — Napoleon Bonaparte

Greetings Truth Warrior, Patriot and Sentient Sentry:
 
I trust this finds you and your family hale, well and in fighting trim. As Dorothy Parker reminds us, “Money cannot buy health, but I’d settle for a diamond-studded wheelchair.” 

Prolegomenon. 

Please note today’s significance. On this date in 1865 “Alice in Wonderland” was published in America and how apropos that was and is as we slither down daily therabbit hole: Defined as entering into a situation or beginning a journey that’s complex or chaotic. Thus perfectly limns today’s state of affairs here in Emerald City. Today is also the 1259th day since Mr. Trump announced his 2016 election bid and the 674th day since POTUS Trump was sworn in to save this republic from the likes of twits, nincompoops and Boeotians such as Petrified Pelosi, Mad Maxine, Shifty Schiff and the posterchild for Sanpaku eyes (“3 whites” and we’re not talking egg orders, Sparky), the monumentally frightening curse of New York’s 14th Congressional District, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who’s still waiting for her “inauguration.” It’s hard to believe that this mouth-breathing bobblehead is considered by many in the DNC to be its savior. So, she’s as good a place to start as any. Let’s dig in.
 
There she is. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the mindless dolt and gift that keeps on giving. 
 
Please, please, I beg. Donate and support the consummate rube, AO-C. Keep this vapid and vacuous vessel afloat, front and center. Let her inspire and attract more like-minded mindless mind-numbed Boeotians whose wide-eyed and vacant allure is the siren call to the politically-disconnected and reality-challenged. If I didn’t know better, I’d swear she was a spy for our side. 
 
Let’s look at some of her beauts. These are actual quotes from the Norm Crosby of political visionaries.

  • “Unemployment is low because everyone has two jobs. Unemployment is low because people are working 60, 70, 80 hours a week and can barely feed their family.” [Source]
  • “I think that many members of our military need to go through years of training in order to have access to these weapons, and the idea that a 17-year-old can walk into a shop and get one, I think, is unacceptable.” [Source]
  • And this whopper. “We’re gonna flip this seat red.” [Source]

And it’s not just O-C.
 
Please take and make note of the new brand and breed of newly-minted Congressfolk such as Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, the former making headway with headgear, joining the latter promoting BDS platforms inter alia. Look, such is certainly their right and prerogative without a doubt and you don’t need me to explain that. But remember, if you want to join forces to stop, halt and thwart religious persecution and human rights violations such as female genital mutilation, the subjugation of women and persecution of LGBTQIA’s you can’t call for or encourage the imposition of Sharia law(s). I and a number of liberty-loving Americans have just the agenda you ordered. Remember what we’re talking about here and whom you’re talking to. Hear me, Linda Sarsour?
 
Let me also remind you of the political azure-inclination of a few facts. This has nothing to do with an imaginary Islamophobic wave or contingent and certainly nothing to do with the hijab, al-amira, shayla, khimar, chador, niqab or even the burka (the name given to any and all religious head coverings). This is about the dilution and disappearance of the American culture. You heard me, American!

The invasion of our southern border is on.

Behold the ochlocracy. Enough with the cutesy euphemisms. Stop calling invading hordes “caravans.” We’re talking murmurations and invading infestations of humanity carrying ungodly diseases, unchecked and unvetted, preying upon our communities and sucking dry limited resources. This is viral parasitism and this is Trump’s final stand. This is his moment. His destiny. He won in part on promising to build a wall. We are past the breaking point, patriots. 

This is an attack on our sovereignty. Our rule of law and order. It’s all brought to you via George Soros and the Dumb-ocrats, who now realize that they’ve lost the African-American and Latino votes and must now enlist legions of the lawless to fill out voter rolls. It’s that simple. They couldn’t care less about the plights of humans — and, yes, they are humans and have been compromised and exploited and co-opted by these Dem dastards per usual. Trump knows what to do and will do it. He promised us and I take him at his word.
 
Gun registration based on social media review. No, this isn’t a joke. This actually happened. Democratic (what else?) New York state lawmaker Kevin Parker is proposing (seriously) a change to state laws to allow licensing authorities to search social media for potential “red flags” before approving a handgun license, specifically the last three years of an applicant’s social media postings and opinions and a year of their search histories for “any good cause for the denial of a license,” such as racial slurs, putative threats of violence and lawlessness and terrorism-connected posts, rants and screeds. The bill would mandate that applicants provide investigators with their Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter and Instagram passwords and access to their Google, Yahoo and Bing searches. George Orwell, eat your heart out.

And should the authorities come upon what is considered a racial slur or the language of hate, what, do you suppose, should be the remedy when Constitutionally-guaranteed rights are stripped? Anyone? Don’t everyone speak up at once. What utter tripe!

JFK.

Last week was the 55th anniversary of the governmental hit on our beloved 35thPOTUS and as you can imagine, the media were asleep at the switch. Not so much as a mention of the conspiracy fact that paralyzed a country then and now. Why? Well, when you have passels of man-bunned per diem 20-somethings with no sense of history belching out the alleged news today, this is what you get. Anyone who thinks that Oswald acted alone should have their drivers licenses revoked and all sharp objects removed from their double-wides. The obviousness of the orchestrated hit is even more obvious now than it was then. That simple.

A survey commissioned by the FiveThirtyEight news site, found that only 33 per cent of people believe the finding of the “official” Warren Commission, concluding in 1964 that Oswald alone was responsible for Kennedy’s televised hit. A total of 61 per cent believe at least one other person was involved. Wouldn’t you love to know who the 31% is and are? Better yet, probably not.

Either way, no one in the media today (what’s left of it) possesses the slightest suspicion over the blatantly fictional LMAO fantasy of solo LHO and his magical Mannlicher–Carcano. 

Russians on the moon to address the alleged and fabled Moon Hoax.

Did Neil Armstrong and Americans land on the Moon in 1969 just in time to realize JFK’s pledge or was it a beautifully produced hoax as #Mooners claim? Was it Kubrick’s finest moment? I’m no expert either way, though the impeccable timing of it was one for the ages. But why is this critical? I’ll tell you; because it was in the news this week thanks to our friends the Russians.

It was reported that all such questions as to the actuality of the event will be answered when Russian cosmonauts visit the Earth’s satellite, Russia’s space boss, promised. “We’ve set such a task – to go there and check if they were there or not,” Dmitry Rogozin, er, “joked” in response to the popular question about the moon exploration. “The Americans say – they’ve been there. We’ll verify that.” This, as you can imagine, recurdles one of my favorite subjects. Not because of its verity but because how it drives folks crackers. 

What happens to Mueller when the House turns anti-Trump Blue?

Get ready for the swarms, Sparky. John Podhoretz hit it solidly yesterday with this piece I commend to you. No use in reiterating it. Read the shite storm that’s on its way. And ask yourself whether folks really understand all that’s happening here. Better yet, ask yourself what Dems actually plan on delivering as a platform should they ever reverse the course of sanity. 

Speaking of conspiracy theories, when exactly did they become a bad thing? 

I can tell you exactly1967. Specifically, in April 1967. The CIA issued a dispatch which effectively coined the term “conspiracy theories” and therein recommended methods for discrediting such hypotheses and theories. The dispatch was marked “psych” – short for “psychological operations” or disinformation – and “CS” for the CIA’s “Clandestine Services” unit. It was produced in response to a Freedom of Information Act request by the New York Times in 1976 and in effect weaponizes the term, owing to the sniveling overuse by reality-challenged dweebs today.

Where the hell is Julian Assange?

As you can understand the rumor mill is on overdrive and with that means conjecture and supposition on full-tilt crazy. Has he been secretly indicted? Is he in GITMO ready to testify against the Clintons or about to help expose the crime of the Clinton Foundation? Will he once and for all blow the lid off the fantasy of the Russian collaboration narrative?

And as for charging him criminally, that’s a definition of nuts, plain and simple as it is axiomatic that the law protects him as a journalist and his WikiLeaks dispatches as newsworthy. The world watches carefully. Stay tuned.

THE LIONEL NATION NEWSLETTER 19 NOVEMBER 2018

“The most violent element in society is ignorance.” 
― Emma Goldman

Greetings Truth Warrior, Patriot and Sentient Sentry:

I trust this finds you hale, well and in fighting trim. This is a particular day of historic note this 19th day o’ November. On this day in history in 1955 National Review published its first edition and Pier Luigi Farnese, the Duke of Parma, was born in 1503. And, yes, Abe Lincoln in 1863 delivered the Gettysburg Address and in 272 words cemented history with a breviloquence today’s monosyllabic pol couldn’t recognize much less duplicate. Imagine today’s version: A misspelled tweet starting with the now ubiquitous and mandatory “Hey, guys.”

But it’s a new day, a new Monday, and these are provided as an amuse-bouchefor the week upon us as we look to some events last week that drew our attention as well as myriad miscellany. And as with most stories, save that of the impudent #FakeNewsCNN agent provocateur, Jimmy the Accoster that I will explain, I have refused to recognize or honor Ted Baxter sockpuppet media as I’ve pulled the plug on them since October 27 of last month, vowing never to watch cable news ever again. Period. Even the once lauded Fox who’s seemed to have lost its way in a post-Ailes, post-Disney Brothers Murdoch watered-down version. More on that infra.

The CA wildfires con, sideshow, spectacle and cognitive dissonance suspension of reality and the complete abandonment of the obvious.

You’re kidding me, right? Have you examined the witness accounts and testimony as to the California wildfires? Look, for purposes of this I’m not going to deep dive into alternative theories and hypotheses as to source origination and causation, not to mention the selective fire targeting that boggles the mind. Nope, don’t worry. No “conspiracy theories” here as the juvenescent media now call warranted suspicion. But let me put it this way. There’s a whole bunch of folks you don’t know who are working overtime in civilian, citizen, alternative and foreign media platforms that are blowing away anything Ron Burgundy can come up with in terms of coverage, level of investigation and suspicions voiced and researched. I asked on my Twitter page the following question:

“Do you believe the official narrative that #CaliforniaFires are being started, fueled, spread and originate ‘innocently’ through unattended campfires, lightning and/or explicable reasons and causation model?”

Guess the reactions. Go ahead.
 
What?! CIA says that MBS is responsible for Khashoggi’s murder.
 
It was reported last week that . . . first, are you sitting down? It seems that crack sleuths at the inimitable and inscrutable CIA have concluded that Saudi Clown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) ordered the assassination of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Istanbul. This after his last moments on earth of strangulation, screams of terror, the buzz and whir of bone saws and the depositing of his shredded, butchered and dismembered hacked extremities were placed into diplomatic garbage bags were all caught on Memorex via his Apple watch (though that’s disputed) that his fiancee Hatice Cengiz reportedly overheard whilst waiting in the car. Roy DeMeo MBS sure as hell ain’t.

Our heritage media reported this no scheiße shocker on Friday and as you can understand, this is a finding that drastically contradicts Saudi government assertions that he was absolutely not involved. I know, shocking! Have you ever seen or heard of a worse hit team than these folks? What’s more amazing is how the US pretends to show any shock or horror after our own history of manufactured wars, citizen drone kills, targeted assassinations, name it. When it comes to hubris, we’ve no competition. But remember this: Americans have the attention span of a gnat and this will be forgotten in no time. Remember the Las Vegas shooting? (See what I mean?)

Sorry, children. Lachrymal Little Jimmy Acosta was the “victim” of a Due Process violation and not a First Amendment deprivation. So, shut up.

Did you hear me? The champion of raucous reportage was granted a reprieve from the press corps dog house not because he was a journalist, member of the fourth estate or deserves a picogram of respect, no. ‘Twas because he was deprived of DP. Notice and an opportunity to be heard, pilgrims. Judge Timothy Kelly agreed with the plaintiffs that the White House did not give Little Jimmy via the Administrative Procedure Act due process by simply having a Secret Service officer demand the return of his physical pass without any prior and adequate notice or opportunity to respond.

So what does this mean? Simple, POTUS can yank his creds again but make it a tad more formal. And one more thing on the subject, if Jimmy’s so critical to #FakeNewsCNN, why won’t they give the punk his own show?

HRC sent up a trial balloon, Hindenburg style.

Two Hillary hacks last week sent up the blatantly staged and deliberately planted feelers that the Oven Mitt Fashionista HRC in this WSJ piece was threatening, er, considering another shot at POTUS. Gadzooks! Check out this headline. Hillary Will Run Again: Reinventing herself as a liberal firebrand, Mrs. Clinton will easily capture the 2020 nomination. Bwahahaha!

One of the authorsMark Penn, her old campaign field marshal who’s actually credited along with Cruella de Vil herself with the birth of the Birther Movementfrom his now famous 2007 memo, is noted and remembered for calling Obama “unelectable except perhaps against Attila the Hun.” He further wrote, “I cannot imagine America electing a president during a time of war who is not at his center fundamentally American in his thinking and in his values.” Penn proposed targeting Obama’s “lack of American roots.” Uh huh. And you know what that means. In case this point was missed, let me reiterate. The Pantsuit Piranha and her dutiful manservant are the architects of the “conspiracy theory” that the newly-minted style maven Michelle Obama actually blames President Trump for advancing.

And speaking of the former FLOTUS, now author. She gives us “Becoming.”

We know how Michelle O loathes the cantankerous cankled one and in her new iteration fancies herself a nouveau Oprah. Or something. And if she does, she needs to work on her delivery and have an idea of what interesting is.

Here a just a few scintillating quotes from that will certainly wow and mesmerize. 

1. “There are simply other ways of being.” [You’re kidding, right? What the hell does that even mean? Quick, someone get the Dali Lama on the phone.]

2. And this spellbinder: “If there’s one thing I’ve learned in life, it’s the power of using your voice.” [Tell that to a single mom working two jobs, oh great Sage. Didn’t Charlie McCarthy say that once? Or was it his wooden dummy, Edgar Bergen? This sounds like the deep musings of a 16 year-old self-absorbed diarist.]

3. And finally, this shout-out to Stuart Smalley: “Am I good enough? Yes I am.” [Dear God. Who writes this stuff? Look when it comes to saccharine and schmaltzy omphaloskepsis, give me Charlene and the anthem of self-absorption, “I’ve Never Been to Me.”]

What happened to Fox?

Judge Nap’s gone off the reservation, Fox & Friends makes Romper Room look like the Mont Pelerin Society and the evening roll-out is the playing-it-safe conservatism paint by numbers cavalcade. Sorry, we need depth. And Trump needs at least one platform that gives him a break. Mark my words, the Bros. Murdoch want to appease Disney and become more like CNN. Hannity and Limbaugh should form their own platform and get down to business. Capeesh?

And why’s Chris Wallace going out of his way to be nicey-nicey with #CNNothing and its faux news compatriots? Wallace told the President that when he goes after The New York Times and CNN, “we’re in solidarity, sir.” [Give me a break, CW. Seriously.] And it’s not just Fox.

Newsmax’s Chris Ruddy denounced POTUS after tossing TV’s answer to the pilonidal cyst, Acosta. By the by, Ruddy, if I were you I’d worry more about your coverage than what 45 says. Have you watched Newsmax TV lately? I’d rather lick a belt sander than waste a neuron watching that dreck. It’s TV’s answer to the sitz bath. Dear Gawd! It’s even worse than OANN. And that’s saying something. 

“Prosecuting Julian Assange for Publishing Documents Is An Existential Threat to Freedom of the Press.”

That’s the very title of my YouTube disquisition that I artfully provide on the very subject, verily and with verity. Assange is an actual journalist hero and, if anything, deserves a ticker tape parade, the proverbial key to the city, immunity from all prosecution, permanent citizenship and the gratitude of all Americans. Even the Obama DOJ knew they couldn’t prosecute him. He and WikiLeaks didn’t secure the illegal obtaining or theft of documents and emails. It’s well-settled. It was a leak as in given to him. He’s protected via the Mighty First. As Justice Stevens wrote for the majority in Bartnicki v. Vopper532 US 514 (2001), “[A] stranger’s illegal conduct does not suffice to remove the First Amendment shield from speech about a matter of public concern.” The matter presented in WikiLeaks is analogous to those materials of the Pentagon Papers wherein the New York Times was held not criminally liable.
 
As the Washington Post opined in 2013 when it explained the Obama DOJ’s decision not to prosecute Assange:

“Justice officials said they looked hard at Assange but realized that they have what they described as a ‘New York Times problem.’ If the Justice Department indicted Assange, it would also have to prosecute the New York Times and other news organizations and writers who published classified material, including The Washington Post and Britain’s Guardian newspaper.”

So what’s different now? What changed? The language our beloved POTUS along with Chief Spook Pompeo have demonstrated calling for everything from lengthy incarcerations to targeted assassination (Jamal Khashoggi, anyone?) is most distressing and monumentally and profoundly inappropriate.
And to think the Ted Baxter sockpuppet echo chamber, cookie cutter, playbook, bumper sticker corporate hack news media schlock were bent out of shape over POTUS giving the petulant manchild Jimmy Acosta grief after he acted like a goddamn fool (again) and manhandled a female staffer. But not a peep about Assange. Think about it. Nary a peep.

The world’s first AI newscaster was unveiled. 

It was a matter of time. And take a good look because before you know it these cyborg thingamajigs will replace the vapid media retinue of sockpuppet hacks on “news” platforms. Have you watched television news today, seriously? Have you actually watched the level of talent disintegrate based on the second-rate, third-tier, per diem D-list celebrity wannabes who stumble over poorly-penned prompter craft? It’s enough to make you shriek. Look at it this way, the basics, the rudiments, of news programming haven’t changed in 60 years. News, sports and weather. And my favorite, traffic. Traffic on TV?! Who has a TV in their car? (Yet.) It’s about selling time, Sparky.

Speaking of anachronisms, how about weather programming. And they still can’t get it right. I’ve got this gizmo I carry around that looks like a phone that can actually give the 10-day forecast for Yakutsk, and I’m supposed to listen to some yutz in a bad suit wax vatic with such beauts as “a chance of rain.” There’s a chance of everything. Fortune cookies are more specific, for Chrissake. Imagine a home pregnancy test announcing, “Chance of Pregnancy.” [And who cares if your home’s pregnant anyway?]
 
Remember the Battle of Athens

The Battle of Athens was a forgotten American rebellion led by pissed off, fed-up and disgusted American patriots in Athens and Etowah, Tennessee. It was targeted against the local corrupt government in August of 1946. These brave citizens that included many WWII veterans, accused inter alia local government officials of predatory policing, police brutality, systemic political corruption and voter intimidation and they’re an inspiration. And a warning.

Lionel Kicks Off the 2019 CONSPIRATORIUM TOUR at the Cutting Room NYC on January 19 2018 CE


Tickets are available here

LIONEL welcomes you to NYC’s famed and fabled CUTTING ROOM the inaugural performance of THE 2019 CONSPIRATORIUM TOUR, an evening of (out)spoken word and the immaculate twang of Mother Bluegrass with his Lock ‘n Load trio, Lionel will astound and mesmerize his truth warrior and liberty sentry audience with tales from the front lines, his dissection of fake news media charlatans and a sharp look at the world through a prism that defies description and redefines comedy, satire, and critical thinking. Lionel joins guitar flatpicking genius Bob Harris and banjo master Bob Sutor for a musical journey through the quintessential American musical art form that will bring our beloved republic together again. This is what the truth smells like.

A caveat.

The revolution must come from the people, not from the revolutionaries. The FBI never knew a revolutionary group it did not infiltrate and co-opt. Never. It is bipartisan in this. It is counter-revolutionary not counter-intelligence. Its goal is not to destroy, but to corrupt and use.

Fatuosness in SCOTUS commentary.

This article by Michael Stone is fatuous and pusillanimous. It mentions a paper by the judge on the matter of capital punishment which sentence the judge opposes. Stone has clearly not read the paper in which she, the judge, clearly states the religious requirement for a Catholic judge who opposed the death penalty to recuse him or herself from the sentencing phase in a capital case. This is her moral opinion, and makes no pretense of stating a judicial opinion. The entire article is addressed to catholic judges who take seriously the church’s recent teaching regarding the immorality of the death penalty, which you might expect Mr. Stone to concur with.

If there are valid reasons to exclude this judge you won’t find them in Stone’s article. Articles like this serve only to promote a partisan opinion and probably harm a valid case against the judge if there is one.

Unfortunately, low caliber arguments will extend beyond opinion pieces and into the Senate process of advice and consent. In one way it will be a blessing if the good judge is not nominated. Listening to the sophomoric inquisitions of the grandstanding Senators is more than can be borne.
