Oldie but Goodie

IMG_20200531_063608 What I wonder is whether the graffiti writer who blasted this is a Revelations minded Christian or more secular.

Second question is when did they do it — response to the rioting or to Coronavirus?

Third question… Any significance in the decision to use the old English term “nigh”, or is it just an aesthetic appeal?  Could we get a Latin phrase while we are at it?

No justice or peace

IMG_20200530_110857 I assume there is a story behind this burnt car.  I assume the story will be told sometime or other.  I note the destruction of the Windows of the Microsoft and Apple stores, and recall that in the shut down we have a lot of lower case stores — ones theoretically the looters wouldn’t slide into what I guess is an incoherent criticism of police patrolled white supremacist capitalism (?) (All they care about is property, dangedit.  Or something.) — boarded up, as the likes of these places of businesses are obliged to do after clearing up the broken glass.

A guy in a bandana over his mouth passes by as I take a couple photos — well, the rule is when placed in contact within those six feet, as a gathering designed to move into riot mode will be — this is social distancing etiquette.

IMG_20200530_111906I do not know if this piece of graffiti isn’t patriot prayer mockers.  But nay.  We have a grand unified theory of smashing.  Never mind I have no clue what the black victim in Minneapolis stands on gender theory.  As a joke it passes over middle America — you all talking to yourselves.

It strikes me the business across from what I guess is the center — the gummint building in front where blm have held some protests of a peaceful nature the last few days –is lucky their logo includes a n encased circle that kinda looks like an anarchy symbol… May have protected them from anything but some incoherent graffiti.


Conspiracies not abounding

Tuesday, May 26th, 2020

For what it is worth, I found and then pocketed a piece of paper, crumpled, clearly tossed off a pole — declaring the truth of the coronavirus hoax — “and we can prove it” was the phrase used — and pointing to some website or other.

Conspiracy theory gets a bad rap sometimes — you stare at the specter of the face off of the partisans of the man in the white house against the “deep state” and a sudden backing of said “deep state” — because of the jackass involved here — by a contingent who used to know…

… Well, I was watching the mst3k episodes of Cold War Hollywood propaganda movies “Rocket Attack USA” and “Invasion USA”, fairly sure at least the one one had a check coming in from the CIA and MIC…

Anyway, this glued poster would not be one of those times conspiracy theory has a bad rap — or, better to say one where the bad rap is deserved. (Unless the conspiracies proffered are obnoxiously small scale, anti-climactic to that advertised). But I guess he has the right to glue his poster.

Libertarian Party ticket for 2020

Monday, May 25th, 2020

The “lanes” theory of party nominating fights appears to have taken place in the Libertarian Party — with the “disgruntled ex Republican” having its most prominent contender –Justin Amash– dropping out while testing the water, leaving the winner of Jo Jorgensen in the academic gadfly activist lane with performance artiste lane of Vermin Supreme holding around for management’s sake a few rounds of voting.

They appear to be appeasing that third lane by the vice presidential nominee — Spike Cohen — art partner of Mr. Supreme — Cohen appears to like exposing his chest hair, which I guess was part of his show if Supreme had won.  In theory, this lane is more radical than the others, but gets clouded out by smirking and claiming “it will make The people confused, but then thinking.”. About boots on heads, I guess.

Jorgensen a previous vice presidential nominee, so who knows? Down the line Cohen may get to that top rung.  And win point oh oh something percent of the vote.

One puzzle:  they both are from South Carolina?

That is not allowed constitutionally.  (Why Dick Cheney had to move back to Wyoming).  Is Cohen going to have to move?

The damnedable race to a white house

Monday, May 25th, 2020

Counter National Review, I believe pretty much everyone is aware of the weaknesses of Presidential candidate, though the most loyal partisans will shelve it as political perceptions. In a sense, Biden becomes the perfect candidate for the moment, you aren’t thinking about him.

And sure, the Reade allegation prompts a bunch of back tracking for hypocrisy’s sake on just what it is “Believe all women”. Always a dangling problem any political operative can drive a mac truck through. WAs Carville right with his “dollar bill through trailer park” line, if something you should tweak?

At that bright eyed stage where the Biden campaign imagines an open map. Sure — just as Hillary saw at the moment of the Access Hollywood leak. And, sure, keep the map open — so long as you are nimble enough to collapse back to concentrate on the core states.

At that point you ask around and skeletons and personal issues get magnified. Still, the problem is… No one is perfect, private citizens are private citizens…

Funny, I do not know where to go with the statement that Trump’s “person of color”s he favors are… “Shuck and Jive” types. Wouldn’t that be the white people he favors as well, modulate the meaning. Biden made an awkward gaffe, but we established the black electorate — at least the major Southern rural one that got to vote — is not into political correct wrangling.

Anyone up for a 2024 contest pitting Trump and Biden?. It is assumed Biden will serve out a term, but notably he leaves a second run open with only “won’t run if signs of cognitive decline” — cornering him, pride alone would show a declined reelection bid a kind of defeat. As for Trump, though — I imagine the Republicans will want to move on quickly, champion their governors.


News Corrections

Saturday, May 23rd, 2020

So, how are Kremlinolgists interpreting North Korean news reports admitting that Kim Jung-un cannot bend time and space?

Maybe some leaked footage is about to make the rounds where, pressed to do so, the man is shown squinting and concentrating very hard, seemingly constipated, but in the end with neither time nor space bent.

Maybe they have done public opinion research and found that the populace in North Korea are hungry for more down to Earth Supreme Rulers, so he is losing these mystical trappings — settling for his beyond perfect bowling and golf scores.

Maybe he is about to emerge with a giant piece missing from his head, the source of the recent death rumors, and needs to acclimate the public.

Maybe… Maybe… Maybe?

Does Jo Ann Perkins matter? Really, does she matter?

Wednesday, May 20th, 2020

I wonder if the bloviating on the drudgery of Jo Rae Perkins and her qanon based Republican Senate primary win isn’t overstated. Hop over to Tennessee, and Mark Clayton’s Democratic Party nomination. That didn’t stop a bid from by Phil Bredesen a few election cycles later, nor play any part in his double digit breaking from even in the polls loss.

Were the other Republicans running much better in their message? Looking at her chief opponent — rambling about the Democrats as Socialists. Familiar ground. For his part, the most credible gubernatorial candidate of Knute Buehler — who I’m guessing fits a profile of the next Republican candidate the party seriously backs for state office when finding a competitive spot — had dropped bipartisan conciliating language when vying for the lone Republican held House seat. She will win that district.

I guess she now heads my perennial sometimes “gordon allen pross candidate” list. We will see whojoins her.

Has Bob Avakian taken over the Larouche org?

Tuesday, May 19th, 2020

I.  Justin Amash, Republican turned Independent turned Libertarian member of the U.S. Congress, had announced a bid for the Libertarian Party Presidential nominee.  Then he made an abrupt about face and dropped out.  Notwithstanding the party members’ fatigue over three straight races headed by ex Republicans and Amash maybe not knowing how to answer the question of whether everyone can set up oil rigs as individual island nations or whatnot, what might account for Justin Amash’s decision?

Is it possible he was scared off after seeing social media mocking him with the potent insult in American politics — “another Larouche”?  He was dying so badly by the insult he saw no other way but to withdraw?

The repercissions in the election ate staggering. Though, Larouche would not come in fourth.

Over a year after his death, which those who care know, and the question is… How long will Larouche be tossed as this insult? (And segue into this ). (Hey! The Caveman show is probably available by streaming.

II.  The answer may lie in the success of Helga and the Bunch in their “Larouche Legacy Project” and the publication of the writings and sentences of Lyndon Larouche into leather-bound diamond encrusted gold plated volumes, sure to set the world afire, taking their place in any showcase book shelf.  Just leaf and you will find — he was talking about viruses in 1978!  So ahead of the curve.  And … He had a plan to colonize Mars — Was with China on the moon. if we had just listened to him instead of jailing everyone 2 degrees separate from him (Roger Stone, for example) we’d have populated all of Mars… and stopped the Pokemon menace.
apparently the most important figure not taught in schools
In the meantime, those that care relegate him to “Alex Jones of his generation”.

iii.  Diane Sare has thrown her hat into the rimg, running for Senate … For New York in… 2022.  Or so a blip on her facebook page has it.  I spoke any campaigning for Daniel Burke for New Jersey in 2020 counts as campaigning for her seat.  They are missing a golden opportunity — they ought have fun both candidates for the same seat, one as a Republican the other  Democrat.  That way of one wins the nominatipn, why then they can appeal to disaffected supporters of the losing candidate to win in November. To be fated for recount request possibilities. (Seem stuck in New York area and South Dakota now.)

Surprising they don’t take up election reform…, considering…

As were, Sare has herself running as an Independent (and has already lost herself one vote), and Burke appears to be the same, even though he did have himself as a “Larouche REPUBLICAN” in an appearance on the powerhouse “Blog Talk Radio”, where…

IV.  From his perch as a regular on Blog Talk Radio’s “Bard’s Logic” podcast, Daniel Burke was shuffled in on an episode exploring “Should China pay restitution?”  (In February we are a debate with Michael Billington over who the greatest threat to the U.S. Is… China or the Deep State… I suppose here we can see a little head fake and get to common ground in dealing on the Deep State, though I wonder if the tone will darken a couple month’s forward.)

But maybe thete is a rightwing “nationalist” source that toes to their China stance. OR not here.
Astounding Schizophrenia otherwise. (Hm hrm).
They have to create their own, though it seems like an echo of the youtube channel.

Bill Jones does his best to excuse Trump to Chinesr media. (I wondet how Cliff Kincaid squares the circle in lombasting the China connection.)

I half think this is a trolling of Burke. Lest, why bring in Israel? (It is a double loop.

V.  Ron Wieczorek commences his letter to the editor campaign.  2 swift rebuttals in the comments section, but he does have the print audience all to himself.  How it will reshape South Dakota politics remains to be seen.

VI.  Daniel Estulin, whose books are composed two thirds of parochial footnoted material, is slammed when he deviates.
Find out later for whoever, your conduits for such things as… Oh… The Bill Gates depopulation agenda of anti-vax machine.

VII. A coup sends Helga out?. Bob Avakian has taken over. It would explain some things.

Another guy who thinks the larouche movement has sold out. And one who thinks they’ve lost theor mojo.

Actually, this tweey from Helga suggests a knowing wink. 3 blokes and a statue declared to be “The Four Powers”. It’s as though she is preemptively offering the punchline some poster at factnet would go with to… profit?

VIII. Long time Supporter?  Possible supporter!. maybe? Until we get to the hang ups in Debating the aristotle line. (Or maybe it was here.
If only the org were still around they may have new means to recruit.

Unsuccessful recruitment attempt. (Pleasant debating society. (Not for everyone)
Will Helga allow this?. Does she support this?. Did some punk band adapt his name?. (not so insane an idea<) Big in Japan?. (Psuedo Christian Rock?. Does Creed have it in for the beatles? Supporting actor. Remembering the lym.(The org’s list includes most of humanity. (for fifty year spells. including… if only one anyone name checks.

flashback. Bark bark. watched em in some state. Chicago lore. Just four years back. Mail boxes. Posters. Drag queens can be larouchies, can’t they?. (not as bad as qanon?
Lame Claim to Fame. and again.


IX. Reading King’s book. Answer: no real demand, also will suffer through attack as British agent by remaining group.
Possible next book?. Skip this one.

I am reasonably certain the larouchie asking for a source and getting one is not clicking the link. (Counterpoint of sorts.
the damned british. again
If Doc Brown were…
There is irony in this post which is maybe where Matthew Sweet is pointing generally. if mote specicically hereabouts. (Times change.
Conspiracies ulterior motives.

X. rip her, if not her political master, but I gotta wonder on the role of a “larouche elector”. I know the guy won scattered delegates in blind opposition fashion (the vote which inflated Bernie Sanders’s total in 2016), but the party strips this vote at the convention rules.
IN 2020, I am hoping Bill Weld can hang onto the one he somehow won in Iowa, but I doubt it.

XI. Getting a bit of attention, the nomination of a Republican senate candidate in Oregon, no chance in the general, who follows and believes qanon. I think there is a tad less then meets the eye — it was either her or a non qanon spouting wingnut for the honors of losing big in November. I have not looked in comments sections of national news sites, but I imagine some references to Larouche pop up, as in twitter, and more specifically the 1986 Illinois<> primary results. Notably, the more recent election victories of Kesha Rogers… are not cited or recalled. The peaks and valleys diminish.

XII. Despite a change in name, “citizen’s electoral council” still predominates media coverage.


Normality sneaks in

Sunday, May 17th, 2020

What does a crowd standing in front of that doughnut place represent?  To be sure it is not the pre corona crowd crowd, but the six foot rule has collapsed and no masks are evident.

Quick — to the stacks!

Saturday, May 16th, 2020

Around Old Town, (most likely neighborhood location to see human defecation) someone, a committee of political action I suppose, has posted a flier warning against … Urm… The name and face of “Riot Cop”.  A bullet point of a couple serious charges next to a few vague-nesses or woke jargon gasps — I wish they settled the list to the couple specific charges because — though I understand they consider it with the phrasing a slam dunk — I don’t know where “discounts victim’s narratives” has us.  (Saw a couple tweets in support of Biden over Reade? Still laughs at Louis CK?)

Curious, knowing the very design of “Riot Cop”, (I guess is defined as an artist?  Scat Poet?), when he would plaster over a rebuttal…

IMG_20200516_142714IMG_20200516_142500. Yeah, we do see the m.o. of keeping the “Community Alert” headline to assure it’s connection.  Elseword, I wonder if he didn’t have this lying about already and decide it was the one that closest fit?
