Are You Not Entertained?

So I am watching the latest combined Media-Hollywood-Democrat onslaught against POTUS.

The children at the border…

I cannot tell if this was a trap all along or not, but so far, Trump has not wavered or reacted like a normal GOP politician would under the onslaught and the wave is breaking.

The public gets tired of outrage and shrill crap and the attack has gone way over the top.

I am in awe of a man who stands his ground and keeps fighting, something I have not seen in my lifetime by a politician.

I cannot see this being a midterm decider, since each congress critter can play it to meet their district.

I see three paths ahead:

1. Trump fades and stops the enforcement at the border.
2. He stands his ground and keeps his few allies in the GOP keep trying to solve the legislation.
3. He goes on the offensive and accuses the screaming left of being in the pay of the child traffickers and cartels. Why else would they want 10,000 unaccompanied children let loose to strangers in the country. He has videos of children trafficked by the cartels.

Personally, I vote for number 3.

I am always afraid of the guy who can take his opponents best shot, grins and delivers a huge counterpunch.

More Signs and Portents…enough already!

In the last 48 hours, two people who have not been in the POTUS camp by any stretch of the imagination have very publicly changed their position on the need to end the Mueller probe/hit job.

Mitch McConnell AND James Clapper both have publicly stated the probe ‘needs to wrap up soon’ for the good of the country.

Something has changed or been revealed behind the scenes. I have seen theories ranging from Google has changed sides to hidden servers in North Korea to combinations of both. Seems a stretch, but one thing I do know from my advanced curmudgeon skills…

This is not an honest change of heart on their part.

Also-what’s the Space Force thing about?

McConnell
Clapper

Signs and Portents, Part The Second

In these turbulent times, we all look for guidance… some from entrails of roadkill, some from the comfort of a homemade meal, some from unprecedented events which may augur a change in the space-time continuum. Life is no longer as sure as the swimsuit competition at a beauty pageant.

Not being a roadkill fan, and having consumed the homecooked meal, I am left with signs of unprecedented events.

Then I saw this on the majesty of the interwebs…

In China, when they have weather, it does not rain cats and dogs.

After Midnight…

Sitting here wondering what tomorrow will bring…

The Q folk are in heavy anticipation, there are talks of firings, redactions, stand offs and power plays in our nation’s capitol. Other groups push conspiracies of rogue missile launches, Tech Cabal actions against the deplorables and the usual Bilderburg/Rosthschild/illuminati/ federal reserve/Zuckerburg/Google flat earther /hollow earther/alien reveals.

I do sense an air of desperation in the other side. The Korea show seems to have confused them beyond their game plan.

I am very worried about the longevity of our POTUS. The forces arrayed against him are formidable and becoming unglued.

Time to nod and compose a request in proper format for submission to the big guy upstairs. May we keep this land of liberty and freedom together for my grandchildren to rebuild and enjoy.

Report From the Oblivious…

Today in the Daily Mail:

“George Soros claimed that with the Trump Administration, ‘everything that could go wrong, has gone wrong’
Soros plans to spend roughly $15million in the 2018 elections
The billionaire describes Trump as a ‘narcissist’ who ‘considers himself all-powerful'”

I was feeling a bit low on irony until I read this. Then I felt much better….

Nothingburger or Ratburger?

I know the belief among many of deplorables here is that the IG report will be a nothing burger.

I admit I have the same worry.

But a few things lead me to think there is a strategy for presenting what may be the largest case of corruption in US history in the modern media era and make it sink in and have impact.

1. All eyes are on the IG report and the swamp creatures are working to counter it and modify the impact. All the media is waiting on the timetable set.

2. No eyes or media attention is on Huber and the other grand juries.

3. No eyes are on the actual work being done by Sessions and the rest of the DOJ. The leak indictment came out as a total surprise.

I have come to the belief that the IG report is drawing attention away from other actions. It will get information out into the public and the media talking heads operation, but the countermoves are obvious.

If this plays out, the Huber operation with real indictments and arrests will follow rapidly while the swamp is countermoving the IG report.

Trump does not strike me as the type of typical Washington DC weasel who feels the report is the same as justice. I will be waiting for the handcuffs and perp walks. I do know the report MUST precede the arrests or it will look like a political purge.

It is Going to Get Weird In DC

Assuming the GOP hangs onto the Senate and House, the post midterm environment will get funky.

So far, we have had the following teams playing Battlebots with our money in our buildings in Washington DC:

1. Trump team- White House, Military and a handful of Congress Critters.

2. Holdouts in the executive branch/Deep State

3. Media/Democrats/Obama-Clinton Federal Judges

4. GOPe/ NeverRight ankle biters

Post the Midterms, given holding both houses the teams will realign.

1. Trump team-GOP, Military, Handful of Dem Senators

2. Media/Democrats/Obama-Clinton Federal Judges

3. Retired GOPe Noisemakers/Lobbyists, NeverRight ankle biters

4. Remnants of Deep State in executive branch

At some point if Trump keeps succeeding, the political alliances change around the principle of preservation by re-election and new donors replace old donors.

Citizen Kane Has Left The Building

I used to be a newspaper guy. By that, I mean I read the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal cover to cover every day, making sure we always had packing material, firestarter and fish wrap in plentiful supply. I only watched one show on TV for news regularly, Nightline during the Iranian Hostage crisis.

As time went on, it dropped to just the Wall Street Journal and a number of trade publications in tech, natural resources, logistics and The Harvard Business Review.

When the internet opened up , I found I could access hundreds of newspapers from the command line. I binged for a bit, but settled back into my regular habits.

Today. I have no trust for the sources I used to rely on. They broke the pact with me.

I am not sure if it was generational or whether our culture really has split into Elites versus Normals.

I do miss the days when I could rely on sources, but I know I may have been engaging in self delusion.

Today, I open the browser, check about ten blogs, half of which are aggregators and listen to a few podcasts and know I am forming my own bubble. All one can do these days is hope the bubble is more transparent than not so you can see the black swans approaching.

It is also difficult to find packing material, Firestarter or fishwrap these days.
