November 3, now December 8

Thursday, July 30th, 2020

Whimsically, flippantly, the President tweets the concept of… Um… Delaying the election. Plausible deniability exists: it is just one of those tweets, which is one of those things the President’s supporters say they don’t take seriously or bother paying attention.

An idea is… Maybe we can do a retconned post hoc delay of election 2016.

Hey. New York delayed the primary election of September 11, 2001, so there is precedent. If for only an act of horror to suddenly appear on November 3, whatever that may be.

The New York Times article “what do Portland Protesters Want and etc” is answered, at least in parts, by this random interviewing, and — Figure out and analyze the selective nature of that sample but … That one is not terribly impressive.

Spiritual transcendence, apparently. And a fist shake at the enemy. The Real Enemy. You know, Ted Wheeler.

Ted Wheeler who learns anew that phrase about how the “Center Cannot Hold”.

Sports goes to generics

Baseball is back, being played in stadiums with cardboard cut-outs. Basketball has resumed with a shortened end of season with 22 of 30 teams running up and down a court in Orlando, without cardboard cut-outs in the seats so… No ambiance. And there is currently a football team called “Football Team”. (Dan Snyder can probably gain a fanbase of irony minded hipsters by keeping the name.)

Headline the first: Report: Joe Biden May End Up Giving the Only Major Democratic Convention Speech from Milwaukee

Next headline: John Kasich Expected to Speak at Democratic Convention for Joe Biden: Report

I am puzzled by the word “Report” appearing at opposite ends of the headlines. Kind of like the computer code language — the first report should be in a ” < " and the last report should be in a " / > “. (Both come from USA Today, by way of yahoo.)
And maybe John Kasich does not count as “major”?

Daniel Burke never at war with eurasia

I was trying to find a couple ad images that I see popping up from Trump’s re-election campaign, “make america great pac” or maybe from Trump’s campaign itself. One is “Trump versus Antifa”, which I take to be a theme with which Trump hopes to gain traction. The more pertinent one here has that slogan “Biden is weak on China”. Which, we see that theme hereabouts.

Meanwhile, wasn’t there once a group called the “Club for Life”, which woulda criticized or opposed such Chinese state policies?

Number Two: A foe has passed on… rip Lester Grinspoon. Nixon didn’t like him, and neither did Larouche.

A “friend” … Or “co-thinker” distances himself and calls Larouche a Freemason and Hapsburg – Rothschild spy for the EU. (He is also a self described victor over larouche – tarpley.) Ironic, as Larouche convinced the multitudes he was against the Hapsburgs— but such is the dealings of a double agent.

Andrew Woods also has a clarification to not use Larouchian explanations on what he wrote.

Number Three: Ron Wieczorek breaks in his take on a matter that is surely a hot topic around the water cooler with South Dakota farmers, Sweden’s closing of the Olof Palme investigation.
(Not too much coverage in the USA, though the Washington Monthly had an article, eliciting broadly speaking the same comment responses I would expect from South Dakota farmers.
Why of any relevance to Larouche: Early supects and persons of interest and the sea of inflammatory rhetoric the cult put out on Palme at the time.
Certain irony in this conspiratorial website praising. (Ignore the misspelling of the name, and common mistake of not placing “former”).

Deanna Wieczorek has suggestions for Trump, none of which appears to interest him. (even as the masses mobilize.)

Y’know… It strikes me that I am not seeing the Larouche movement go to bat for Trump appointments who are criticized for speaking at some Larouche conferences in the past. William Perry Pendley can’t be a cause?
Or are we just dumping 21st Century Science and Technology into the dust heap of history?

Number Four: What do you suppose Queen Elizabeth would have done had it been Lyndon Larouche?
Anyways, the ever controversial and acerbic President what he thinks of the lady. We will find out if it alters their rhetoric.

Number Five: So we see Charles Kirk weigh in on Plato v Aristotle, and twitterers note the Hey!. Larouche did it already. If differences abound.
Debate? Or is it enough they are both on Team Trump?
One bottom line on the Larouchian contribution to this debate. and another. if differently.
(Was this the company he kept?. (Or this?). action figures?. The Office?

Number Six. For anyone interested in election minutiae, a map for countywide 3rd place tallies in the 1988 presidential election. And analysis / guess-work on why Larouche “carried” Iowa.
Statistical pointlessness. (How does this video game work?

Be sure to map out these candidates’ results.

Lame Claim to Fame, a 2004 party at the home of Larouche.
And what do the kids think of Larouche?

Today we find bots randomly spitting out lpac fec report data and people marvelling over said fec data. We do see photos of overpass signs and a gathering of three (or was it four?) somewhere or other, so thete is that.

Number Seven: First thing that popped into some twitterers upon the smashing of the Pike statue: Hey!. Remember? Lyndon Larouche? Huh?.
(To be sure, the two are following seperate historical understandings.). Though, these were the political aims.
And curious: Who suggested the idea to whom?

Interesting to see Matthew Sweet disparage “cancel culture” with reference to Larouche, which — with other allusions to Trump supporters and parts of the gop to the cult, presents a great deal of alienation for the left and right.
(See the somewhat dishonest rejoinder regarding a Matt Taibbi editorial. Granted, Larouche inc took it to probing Angela Davis… And is now prone to the rhetorical bombast “Get their knee off of Larouche’s Neck”. (Classy).

I believe they have the culprits behind the “Next Step” wrong. But maybe the rcp took the name too.

Here’s another new book which apparently plugs the larouche memo generator.

Number Eight: Assessing news sources.

When last we saw Sean Stone in these parts, he had served as a laison to bring first Jeffrey Steinberg and then Lyndon Larouche onto Alex Jones, despite a few disparaging comments between them previously. Now we see Dennis Speed on the Stone podcast, pumping up a statue which Fredrerick Douglas reportedly had private misgivings regarding even as he was beginning to become more reverent to Lincoln as a political aim to goad the Republican Party at the time as of moved away from Reconstruction.

Michael Billington does Iran’s Press TV, happy to play two sides against the middle, probably wouldn’t be happy with Evan Siegal’s request.

Jacques Cheminade does China.

Helga made noise about the Daily Coin running an eleven year video of Lyndon. To which begs the question… What is The Daily Coin?

EIR vs Spiked, regarding apes and primates. Of course, it needs to be pointed out, primates were very much on Larouche’s mind during the Obama administration.

Bards Logic for Blog Talk Radio brings Bob Ingraham to you.

Number Nine: Triggering memories of Boston usedta happens.
lost youth photo.
Is there some sort of plaque.
Airport Memories.

Memories of Temple U. did this tp a larouche table, fondly lol.
What was Noam Chomsky up to in 1976?. (Same thing as instrumental classical musicians, I guess.
How to handle canvassing larouchies.

1986 saw people waving Larouche in circle with line crossed out sign. Well, they were pedfling Soviet propaganda.

Number Ten: Fresh off of recording Christian themed music with Kenny G — because he’s just trolling everyone now — and now… Because he announced a presidential run, Kanye West gets to be called the next Lyndon Larouche.

KW Miller, congressional candidate in Florida. Absent a Beyonce conspiracy thepry no one woulda paid him any mind. Would they?. Is the other stuff enough to get him noticed?.

Scott Adams garnered a small handful of “heh heh just like larouche” comments.

And beyond that it is the old standbys of public figures.

Number Eleven
Land bridge ideas, train routes, etc etc etc handed in college.

what happens after the org corners the market on politico with hitler mustache, like the South Park episode “Simpsons Already Did It”.

“outsider artstrange company

Number Twelve: The thing is, Dennis King or Chip Berlet would agree with the sentence by Alan Osler. Just short of this. (hm), hm,
Actually, the time has come at long last to fact check this cartoon. He brought up Luxemberg favorably when courting the Tea Party in 2009- 2010, so how would it all change in 2045?
In the meantime, it does dawn on me that I too see more RCP material about than Larouchian these days. Wheat-pasted on bridges, mainly.

Good for acid trips?

Number Thirteen. The requisite Senate candidate round-up coverage in the news media, representative most of what will come in the newspapers. In social media… Well, The Daniel Burke Senate campaign impresses and impresses and embracing that Simpsons joke. Still needs work on photoshopping together memes, thoigh.
And any day now, having commuted the Roger Stone sentence, Trump will move to doing whatever it is the larouchies think he should do for Lyndon. (Skip to the last sentence William Jones has here, and… Erm… Not only does Larouche “require no pardon”, bit it is an impossibility.)
If Trump doesn’t “exonerate Larouche”, after taking his step with Stone … Well, I guess Burke will sadly announce he was a Chump for Trump.
Apparently taking a page from Lindsey Graham — who endorsed Ted Cruz’s presidential bid even after saying some horrible comments — Burke has called on Rand Paul to join the Larouche Movement even after Larouche called him a “Nazi” and “Enemy of Civilization”. But maybe Burke is just trying to create political distance from Larouche? AS it were, we will see any day now, Rand Paul join the Larouche Movement… Any Day Now…

Number Fourteen. Larouche versus Chapo Felix, because Larouche ceased watching entertainment with The Man From Uncle, or whatever… And moved onto creating his own realness.
Now waiting for the moment in an ultimate battle and apparently with alliances of conveniences to spare.

But… He hobnobbed with spooks.

Raise your hand if you knew that there was a “Larouche Citizens Committee of Mexico, which seems to send out press releases from Leesburg (or is it Germany these days?) with “Open Letter to Lopez Obradar” written above it. It seems to be part of a renewed focus on “Ibera-America”, as we see the org now pumping routine diplomatic comments between Trump and Obradar.

Number Fifteen: The AVP reports Larouche as the source of a popular in leftwing circles notion that Israel originated “Deadly Exchange” on interactions of police tactics with the war versis Palestinians.
Prompting this rejoinder.

Stupid Times

Saturday, July 11th, 2020

In the distant past, a different decade, I heard a caller to Clyde Lewis make the com!ent along the lines of … “We are horrified by Nazi propaganda dehumanizing Jews as rats, but we watch Cops, and … What is the difference?”. Granted, Mr. Lewis did not state the premise, but he did not deny it and may indeed have mildly affirmed it. I think of this in hearing Clyde Lewis more recently decry the cancellation of the series … No longer Fox, but some network called Paramont…
Watching some old Letterman, with the David Letterman superfan archivist who slices a lot of themed segments together on youtube, so I have all the small commentary he did on the show Cop Rock. He had his mom watch and do a call-in review, which found her rating it negatively and instead opting for the network series “Top Cop”, aired on CBS at the time which spot lighted positive heroic acts of police officers. It strikes me that if it were released today, there may just be an audience… For a moment, at least.

The local alt weekly’s “Ask Mr. Expert” column coveted some Orwellian territory in sliding aside the phrases “abolish the police” to having an entirely different definition of the phrase — and then coming down to the very glib item of sarcasm that we will still have some available for white people “in the unlikely event a serial killer are after you”. As though this were the end all issue of why one needs the police.

As were, local city council politics finds the black city council woman using the phrase “performative allyship” to decry the white city council woman for a no vote on a 13 percent cut in the police burea budget as not being deep enough. That is the left wing term; the right wing term is “virtue signallimg”. The non nonpartisan term is “pandering”. Decry Chloe Eudaly however you must.

Contradictions in silly season

Wednesday, July 1st, 2020

Over the weekend, I noted a few articles collected at yahoo regarding speculation, rumors, sorta inside sources suggesting on one hand, denying on another, that the president — looking at falling standing and not wanting to risk losing — may drop out of the race, and then we go on from there with what would happen if such a circumstance occurred.
Funnily enough, I see elsewhere a renewed attention to comments offered by Joseph Biden and on to elsewhere concerning what would happen should the President lose, and he does not leave office. A bit of a chestnut, some online amusement was once had regarding Bush on that score, with one strange call from a conservative or Republican site stating the online liberals should be giving Bush his due for… Leaving office.

Of course, now that it was brought up… Maybe Trump will drop out, not risking defeat. Naturally he did not four years’ back, but then… He was playing with house money back then with nothing to lose in that there free wheeling manner. Now, we got him saying to Hannity the confession that too many people hate him, so there is a Nixon floating there.
