Meet The New Boss

Alright already! I’m glad the unmentionable one has left the building. His departure was as classless as his entire tenure as the leader of the free world.  Good riddance.

But I’m already discouraged to see the slobbering press heaping praise on a new administration that has only been in office for two days. It’s like seeing the resurrection of Lincoln, JFK and FDR, according to the left end of cable news and the New York/Washington press corps.

But let’s look back to 2008, when Barrack Obama picked Joe Biden to be his running mate. He was a well known face to most Americans, having run for the top spot a few times; a competent Senator who could fill the job if the unthinkable was to happen, but thankfully never did. He was never seen as Obama’s successor, only a stand-in while Hillary Clinton padded her resume’ for the top job in eight years.

And even after Clinton’s stunning defeat, no one talked about Joe. It was only after it became apparent how weak the Democratic field really was (including the new vice president) that the party turned to slow and steady Joe to reassure voters that they weren’t going to get some crazy old socialist nominee who would be pummeled by the Orange Ogre in November.

And their gambit worked, even though Joe’s coattails only gave him the barest of majorities in Congress. Despite the giddy optimism by the press, there are still 75 million Republican voices who weren’t convinced by the promises of a new nonpartisan presidency, and other millions to his left who are determined to see any bipartisan effort fail.

Despite my misgivings, I wish the new administration well and hope that Joe really can accomplish great things, but let’s not deify him until he does. That was tried when Obama was elected, going so far as to awarding him the Nobel Peace Prize, even though he hadn’t done anything beyond getting elected. (Note the drones at the top of the illustration.)

Good luck, Joe. You’re going to need it.

Let’s Talk

While we are currently in a feeding frenzy to reign in misinformation and seditious rants it is important to show some restraint before recklessly charging into censorship. I’ve always been critical of the cancel culture that is slowly eating away at free speech, and the new administration will be under pressure to dampen the voices of dissent.

We can all agree that no one should be shouting “FIRE!” in a crowded theater, that is, unless there actually is one.

Freedumb In Your Backyard

The Freedumb Angels are familiar characters around these parts. They’ve participated in protests during Board of Supervisor meetings demanding that businesses be allowed to reopen during the pandemic. In this video, taken shortly before the insurrection party in Washington, they advocate a more forceful approach…

The Final Days

As Oliver Hardy would say, “Well, this is another fine mess you’ve gotten us into.” The Dear Leader has finally shown his true self, a face and personality that has been painfully obvious to any reasonably sane person for five years. Late today he was finally blocked from his last megaphone on Twitter.

The writing was on the wall when all the living defense secretaries published a letter urging the president to avoid using the military to extend his stay in office. When Don Rumsfeld and Dick Cheney are nervous about your intentions, people take notice.

There’s no way he can walk back his pitiful performance on stage before last Wednesday’s debacle. To the end, it is and has always been about Trump. The parallels between Wednesday and those final days in the Berlin bunker are frighteningly similar. He would rather take the country down than surrender, if he could get away with it.

And the stories coming out of the insurgency are sadly ironic. There’s the guy who fell on his taser and fried his nuts before it killed him. The woman carrying a “Don’t Tread On Me” flag who was trampled to death by the mob. The Air Force vet who was shot and killed by Capitol police. I watched a video she made on her phone while driving her car sometime before Wednesday. It was a totally unhinged anti-government conspiracy rant.

His rabid followers cling to the fantasy that the entire episode was brilliantly staged by the treacherous Deep State, George Soros and the paid army of Antifa. Over at Rebane’s blog, his buddies furiously post links to right wing sites either confirming the election conspiracies or whatabouting criminal acts during the riots of 2020. The same thing is going on on Facebook, Parler, and whatever other platforms that still allow seditious posts.

Trump’s closest advisors and Cabinet members are disappearing rather than invoke the 25th Amendment to remove him from office. It looks like it will be left to Congress to impeach him in the week ahead. One assumes that he has been stripped of his ability to launch nuclear weapons. At least we hope so.

It remains to be seen if the long promised revolution will arrive in the weeks to come. Even with prominent Republicans deserting the sinking ship, Trump’s assessment of his followers remains true: He could execute someone on camera (either a Democrat or traitorous former ally) and they would cheer him on.

Keep your powder dry, friends, this isn’t over by a long shot.
