“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. 

A most considered admonition commended. Thusly.

The children of the 60’s made a valiant effort to divorce us from sin and appeared to have almost succeeded, or so they thought. They regarded sin as millennials regard borders — outmoded, patriarchal, dangerous, inhuman. Yet, now we are all sinners, stained and corrupted with legions of isms and phobias. One demon was cast out. Seven returned and occupied his cramped space. But we no longer believe in demons. More’s the pity. The demon could at least be named and cast out. By a subtle change in spelling we lost the demons and gained dementia. And dementia is no longer just for the old. Physically young people sicken and die when the world refuses to conform to their juvenile wishes. They weep and scream when a third rate huckster loses a rigged election to a melodramatic bombast. They are, purely simply and straightforwardly, demented. Those whom they blame for their malady they regard with more judgementalism than a Billy Sunday would have regarded a Skid Row drunk.

At least that’s the vision we are presented with. It turns out to be more simple and more serious than that. They are not actually demented. They are merely petulant children who have failed to thrive. They populate their make believe worlds with heroes and villains. This world exists in Fisher Price colors. It is thronged by Teletubbies and Skeletors.

It remains to be seen if their arrested development is permanent or is a TV show that will run its course and go into syndication. Let’s hope it is the latter. Their fragile psyches cannot take many more shocks and there are many more to come.

Happy 242nd Birthday, America

Happy Fourth of July, fellow patriot. Celebrate with me this glorious day. Let us fête together this hallowed moment. The day of our country’s birth and genesis. When we were hatched and grew thereupon exponentially to a status and form that’s nothing short of miraculous and beyond belief. Look at our immane wealth and bounty and power. Awesome, in its actual sense and not as the overused interjection today, the millennials’ verbal Hamburger Helper. Consecrated in blood, born of an unmitigated audacity demanding to be free from the tendrils and shackles of Britain’s strangle. La perfide Albion! (But that’s for another time.) And still we the patriotical fight every single day not against invading challengers and vandals but the internecine forces that seek to corrupt and contaminate internally. Behold the Deep State, the police state, the intel state — those who seek to wrest from us our Constitutional protections in order that they enjoy a dangerous and treacherous control. Well, we’ll just see about that.
Here’s some trivia. Do you know how many countries have a Fourth of July?
All of them. But I digress.
If pamphleteering and sloganeering had a baby. Please indulge me with this opportunity to regale you with my myriad musings and miscellaneous maunderings anent and about this country that I love with all my heart and some of those elected whom I loathe and detest mightily with every fiber. Ahem.
Start spreading the news. Today marks 242 years of our noble experiment and thanks to our current POTUS we may be actually witnessing another revolution. Not in the technical sense of the word as our Republic was really not the product of a true, actual revolution, but in the sense that we might be witnessing the destruction of our otiose two-party illusion and left-right paradigm hallucination. Have I rankled the legions with what appears to be a paean to POTUS? Have you cursed these words as you’ve been bitten by the TDS bug? Trump Derangement Syndrome’s real and has been known to shred friendships and splinter families. Ain’t free thinking a beaut? In my 30 years of professional performance legal and media analysis I’ve never seen anything like this.
Warmongering for fun and profit. “A state of war only serves as an excuse for domestic tyranny,” Solzhenitsyn reminds. And adding to the mix is the military industrial complex lavishing and larding its treasury at the cost and expense of innocents and innocence. Blood is green and when it comes to war profiteering we’ve the ’27 Yankees in none other than NATO. Remember Victoria Nuland’s “Fuck the EU.” I must admit, she may have a point. But we soldier on.
Shillary, the Oven Mitt Fashionista still lurks. What would a disquisition on tyrannical psychopathy be without a mention of this horrid termagant who did more to disrupt and interrupt public faith in the franchise than anyone in current history? She’s a mendacity machine, able to spin Brobdingnagian whoppers without batting an eye — which is often how she appeared on the campaign trail whilst being tended to by her burly sidekick ready to jump onstage and jab her with a Diazepam Auto-Injector at the ready when she blanked out, freaked out, seized, froze or went into one of her frightening head jerks or mouth agape overreactions to balloons or flashing lights. This woman couldn’t even come clean as to the source of the mysterious reptilian exoskeleton back brace that she sported mysteriously under her Mao jacket and bunker gear. She was responsible for everything that evolved from RussiaGate, PissGate, DossierGate and her monumentally insane conjecture and fantasy that she actually didn’t lose a rigged election. Let me repeat: Everything today from Strzok to Page Lisa to Page Carter to Rosenstein [RR]. Comey, Mueller — all of it, the result of this woman’s inability to lose with dignity and an organic disrespect for the will of the people. And believe me, I mean really believe me, she’s nowhere near these events being ignored or forgotten and her criminality shelved.
And now a word about nomenclature. We’re not a democracy. This drives me nuts and admittedly it’s not a very long ride. We are a constitutional republic and not a democracy, so let’s agree to get that straight once and for all. To compromise somewhat, we’re a democratic constitutional republic. Never a slave to tyranny by the omnipotent majority. Ben Franklin said that democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch while liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote. Ah, yes. Well-armed.
#QAnon and the recussitation of hope. Nothing’s more exciting than Q. Than-Q. My days start with a quick look at the phone to see if Q’s dropped. New Q? I think I’ll pen a haiku for Q, thank you. Anything new? Have the decoders and autists and anons pored over such accordingly? And while members of the #LionelNation Conspiratorium, clerisy regulars all, review and parse and dissect the marvelously coded crumbs, orts and morsels other contingents of the perpetually disgruntled and incurious disregard and disparage this phenomenon that has inspired and electrified millions worldwide. The frenzied crowds bray and bleat LARP! for reasons that confuse and confound. You really can’t blame them, or rather some. Q destroyed their unique gig, their exclusivity to the truth. I’m long gone and infected with Q. Q-bitten and smitten. Addicted and tethered. Unabashedly I hereby proclaim: Q’s it. The bomb. The future. The ignition switch, the connection, the conduit. It’s like having your own personal Deep Throat, your own Mark Felt. Just imagine that. Better, where Commissioner Gordon summoned Batman through the bat signal, here our Batman summons us when he, she, it or they feel it necessary. Do you believe in coincidences? #WWG1WGA.
Tench Coxe: Genius of the Republic. Of our forebears, Mr. Coxe might be my favorite, especially as he enunciated with surgical clarity the role of arms and the rudiments of the Second Amendment in his words. Yet, amazingly, he’s perhaps the least known. He’s even been relegated to alleged second-tiered status among the Constitutional heavyweights, but to me, TC remains preeminent. Do yourself a favor. Research his mighty words.
As spake Coxe: “Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man gainst his own bosom. Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birthright of an Americans.”
Sexual predation and wholesale trafficking exposed and illumined like no time ever. Something happened and what that something is I’m unsure. We could attribute it to Trump per usual, but that’s too easy. For the longest time — decades, centuries — there’s been a system of impunity and cover that’s hidden from view and inspection the most inhumane and psychically inconceivable examples of sexual predation and ritualistic child rape, torture, cannibalism, organ harvesting, name it — in channels and covens and cabals all over the world at the highest levels. Pedophilia, ephebophila, chronophilia, hebephilia and pederasty on steroids. Horror like we’ve never seen or even imagined. And it was that horror that provided the perfect cover. It redefines sick and vile. Oscar Wilde reminds us that “[t]hose who look beneath the surface, do so at their own peril.” And that’s being exposed and uncovered and while it horrifies, it must be addressed lest these monsters enjoy further cover undercover. You can also thank Trump and #QAnon accordingly. Though expect nothing from corporate media shills, accomplices and abettors. We shouldn’t know what adrenochrome is. But ignorance protects the monsters. And we are #woke. Permanently.
The valedictory. Enjoy the day. Thank you for your patronage, support, encouragement and most importantly, thank you for your continued committed involvement and vigilance in fighting to maintain the integrity of our great Republic. Those are mighty lofty to be sure but they’re real and true to my heart. And I know yours.

Logorrhea Meets Logomancy

The neodullards, sometimes referred to incorrectly as the left, seem to believe in logomancy, the magical use of a words like F**k. They think it has power to disappear things they dislike. E.g. “F**k the border.” It doesn’t work.

Conspiracy Analyst. Not Theorist. Look It Up.

If you don’t believe in conspiracy at the highest level, you need to read the history of “The Focus,” a Bilderberg-like group in the UK that helped precipitate WWII. One of its key members was Churchill. Needless to say they didn’t advertise their existence. 

The Plot and Plan of Abecedarian #MAGA

Allow your enemy to lead you where you want to go and where you want him to be. No, this is not a Sun Tsu quote. But it sounds like something he might have said. One of his minor disciples is Donald Trump. This one has an uncanny knack of letting his enemies waste all their firepower proclaiming him a monster (which the people already either fervently believe or equally fervently do not believe). He then concedes the prized ground that his enemies spent their blood for. Only then do they realize that he suckered them, once again. They are in the swamp and he occupies the high ground.
Consider this.  The Executive Order (if it is not judicially barred) will require families to remain intact. But, out of an abundance of caution, and in order to prevent child trafficking, the veracity of each family claim will have to be verified by more than just a personal affidavit. In the absence of convincing documentation, DNA tests will be required. And that will set the cat amongst the pigeons. Fake parents will now be in jeopardy of getting more than an immigration charge. And even if a family passes muster they will not be released, and will be fully documented and identified for further processing including incarceration in some sort of camp.
Trump’s critics have handed him a way of strengthening the bureaucratic border, and forcing the abolition of the Flores 20 day rule. He is able to shuck off their cavils about his heartlessness. And he gets to expose their insouciance about child trafficking. Their one remaining redoubt will be the vain wish that the southern border will not be a border but a welcome center for any migrant, trafficker or criminal who can make the journey. All other borders will still guard fortress America against all potential invaders. A plainly ludicrous proposal, but one that will be proposed with a straight face that only a serious dose of botox could achieve.
I’m not claiming that he is playing 3-D chess, just that his enemies still think the game is checkers.
