Clinton: Build a Wall

The Clinton involved would have been Bill. He was cheered by Congress.

What People Fear

Tell me what people fear and I will tell you how to control them.

The Problem With Politics

The problem with politics is that hardly anyone considers, “and then what?” OK. You won. What effect will your win and the policies that flow from the win have on the electorate? In the mind of the winners it is always, “We won didn’t we? They will love us.” I have watched this play out […]

“What The Hell’s Going In Chicago?”

“What The Hell’s Going In Chicago?” Trump asks. If you read Chicago newspapers, as I do from time to time, it is not hard to figure out what is going on. There is gang warfare over the heroin trade. The cartel allegedly unloaded heroin from hidden panels in the buses to warehouses in Aurora and […]

Protecting The Homeland

The new Trump appointed Director of Homeland Security (Homeland Security does have a Germanic ring to it doesn’t it) is praising the recent extradition of Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman Loera as a step in the right direction. Since the announcement of infamous cartel kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman Loera’s extradition to the United States, Department […]

China Is Close To Collapse

If we take the latest pronouncements from their Politburo at historical value China must be near their collapse point. Over the weekend China used the Trump inauguration to warn about the perils of democracy, touting the relative stability of the Communist system as President Xi Jinping heads toward a twice-a-decade reshuffle of senior leadership posts. […]

Obama Leaves The White House In A Marine Helicopter

It reminded me of the helicopter scene in this movie.

Rumors – Nigel Farage

There are rumors that Nigel Farage will be having an occasional word with President Trump (I like the sound of that – much more than the sound of President Clinton). Former UKIP leader Nigel Farage is to be a “close but unofficial” advisor to U.S. President Donald Trump, the Governor of Mississippi has said. Speaking […]

In Honor Of Our New President

Did he beat the devil? Or is he one? Eric is glad it is not Hillary. Me too.

Cheer up! Things will get better, or worse, or stay the same.

Forgive me for not having much reaction to the inauguration of Donald Trump. When I watched the election returns back in November, it actually did occur to me that the man would be inaugurated, which he was yesterday. Yawn. Anyway, I’m not jumping up and down with glee. Nor am I reveling in the idea […]

Trump Controls Putin

For the last several months the talking point has been that Putin controls Trump. Now President ∅ is suggesting that Trump controls Putin. You know – their stories might be more believable if they could keep them straight.

Weapons In Violin Cases?

Is this a reprise of the 1920s? Or something else? Authorities continue to investigate cache of weapons, ammunition found near Potomac River. U.S. Park Police and the ATF are trying to solve a mystery on who left weapons, including what appear to be several homemade silencers, in a wooded area near a boathouse along the […]

Coming Out For War

In A Thermodynamic Explanation Of Politics and Two Ecologies I made the point that there are two main human cultures – City and Country. Politics is a reflection of these cultures. Left/Right is a misnomer. It is really City/Country. I now have a little bit of confirmation of that. Those thoughts are seeping into popular […]

There Will Be Consequences

The CIA and the rest are worried about Donald Trump. And the threat is direct. No president since John F. Kennedy has dared to take on the CIA or the rest of the national security establishment or to operate outside the bounds of permissible parameters within the paradigm of the national-security state. That might have […]

The Sessions Session

Jeff Sessions is being grilled by the Senate on his marijuana policy. The Trump administration has said it will not be Jeff’s policy preferences that will be put into action. President-elect Donald Trump’s spokesman Sean Spicer signaled that Sessions would adhere to Trump’s position that states should be able to establish their own marijuana policies. […]
