The cringey

Sunday, October 18th, 2020

Worth correcting a few points,

extreme right wing groups are the ones which the FBI has told us are the most likely to inflict violence on the citizenry. Not the left. Right wing white male extremists are currently the ones who have either been convicted or indicted for various violent criminal conduct. Ranging from murder to plotting to kidnap Governors. There are no organized left wing extremists. So far poorly connected bunch of anarchist. But they do have women associated with them. So there is that diversity.

Passing by the claim of no organization within the left wing anarchists — with a couple polite laughs…

On that Lack of diversity and a bunch of white jackasses… The case locally has Haley Adams, who I last saw in person walking in circles with a handful of supporters and an equal handful of bandanaed counter-protesters and otherwise saw yelling in front of the mayor’s house. In the melee over qanon, I see comments to the effect of expressing alarm and statements to pay attention and not ignore how many midwestern women are taking to the cause and conspiracy.
Then there is a this

[Poll] also spells a bit of trouble for Biden among Hispanic Catholics and Black women, who seem to have slightly drifted to Trump. Read more at The New York Times..

Counteted, I guess, by an actor of note on Bill Maher’s show. The second item, rising support for Trump from black women, leads to a question… Up from zero?

Ignoring the rule that you don’t discuss the outfit of a woman, and then there is this.
Kamala Harris, who Zoomed into the meeting, had a copy of the children’s book I Dissent on a table behind her.

That is not a children’s book, even if that is where bookstores locate it.

The hub ub over Coney’s use of the word “sexual preference”, a wholly situational yelping, leaves me back to the “pox on both sides” position. Surely you jest. Cue a search for Biden saying the phrase to no bashing at a Democratic debate. The best I can suggest is the part of the woke left that votes gives Biden a generational bye.

It is worth parsing the words a little more than this, as of last Tuesday, “bad bad bad”. In some cultural contexts, it is not difficult to imagine a choice sliding in, as well some cultural forces pushing in any direction.

Biden, apparently, we can trace his progressive stance on LGBTQIAS2+ issues to his father commenting on 2 guys kissing in public in Scranton 1961 … And… This literally unbelievableline is apparently part of his pitch back in March.

The covid — antifa matrix doesn’t want me to buy shoes

Monday, October 12th, 2020

IMG_20200921_114529. Needing a new pair of shoes, I ventured downtown, forgetting that Payless is (relatively speaking long) gone. So, wherefore for discount shoes? Ross For Less, perhaps? Nay, I couldn’t figure out this boarded up contraption of a store-front. It appeared to be closed, and when it opens I don’t know.

All right then. That place with initials people always mock. Har de har. I look in, scan about, and cannot see where the danged shoes are.

Target offered one shoe. I almost bought it — because damneditall, but thought better of it.

So. Trip over to Wsl-mart, which despite the best efforts of the city betters has snuck over into on the edge of town. And what do I encounter there? A massive police presence standing by, some doofus with a giant “Trump 2020″ flag waving in the back of the pick – up and driving around in circles , representing I am sure a dozen other Patriot Prayers coming in from Vancouver, and an that assorted grouping with the word “Presx” pinned on to document happenings from their antifa cohorts who are somewhere in the vicinity and who would apparently snatch my personal mobile device out of my hands if I decided I was “press” myself.

Naturally the stores in this strip mall arena are closed. I walk by the entrances, all temporarily boarded or haphazardly blocked, someone shouts from their car “Is it closed?” and I shout back “Appears so”, and so I have to make my way back past a bunch of riotcops, closed fast food places, a Trump flag waving pick up truck, and now I think I see the park and crowding where the two larping Spanish Civil War re-enactors are engaged in their favorite hobby.

IMG_20200922_110000. IMG_20200926_112842 So. Onto Freddies, where I pick up my damned shoes — roughly ten more bucks than I was hoping to pay but them again I am actually kinda flush with cash right now — discarding my old past worn out shoes and putting them on. I thought I had clicked a da!ned flyer en route to the Max on “report any and all fascist license plate numbers to this antifa email address”, but apparently not. Someone in a car is sitting by shouting in a monotone “Black Lives Matter!”, and some guy decides kind of snaps back at attention to give a quick salute and “roght on!”,having to jab for attention to make sure he sees him and that he is signaling the correct virtue.

Coming Republican crack up

Sunday, October 11th, 2020

Attempting to define a “Trumpism without Trump.

It does not and cannot mean a return to the Bush era. The Republican move toward defending the unskilled, protecting working families, guarding entitlements, resisting urban wokeness, checking free trade absolutism, restraining overseas intervention, and curtailing mass immigration is one that need not be abandoned.

Now, figure out if that dream scenario of dousing Trump from the post election wreckage leaves any of this.

This recuperated Republican Party dream literally ending by saying George Bush is “our only hope”.

On one sliver in the first one, the “restraining overseas intervention” Trump shoulda kinda sometimes represents, and then in full campaign battle mode to define Trumpism…

It was a perennial in the Bush Administration mouthed by the liberals repeatedly… We’re gonna go into Iran!!!
Never happened, but now this points to the idea that Trumpism without Trump would probably have even less to recommend it, and be represented by Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas …
… Who is… Erm… Trump plus John Bolton.

Lieberman farting?

Friday, October 9th, 2020


Many took former Barack Obama’s endorsement of Warnock as a not-so-subtle nod for Lieberman to drop out. (fun fact: Joe, Matt’s dad, made sure to fart in Obama’s face during the healthcare debate that almost threatened to derail it.)

When I saw this, I was excited, and curious, and a little puzzled. I would have thought that I would remember Joseph Biden farting at Barack Obama. So, I go to the link to see this incident. No farting mentipned. A google search of Lieberman and fart, likewise, shows nothing as well.

Joseph. Lieberman . Never. Farted. At. Barack. Obama.

The news story is using a colloqualism. It could say simply, flatly, more simply and stately and journalistically, that there was at times a strained relationship with Obama and Lieberman — see, for instance, Lieberman speaking at the Republican convention on behalf of John McCain when he was running against him — which followed through at policy battles during his administration.

But instead what I see here is “fart”. WHY???

Today in impulse mags, the olde parlor game up to date

Thursday, October 8th, 2020

An impulse buy directed magazine on “ranking the presidents” shows on the front a bunch of them — including Obama and Trump. Curious to see what fluffery they have on Trump, and sp I open…

I can’t immediately tell anything — I grasp that the magazine will feature with the most prominence the supposed greats — the Mt Rushmore Mafia, if you will, and a few others tagging about –, will do a smaller bit on the lowest, and some perfunctory on the rest. The still living Presidents will get a “Have to wait for History:s Judgement” line. Too many partisans of each of them.

Commiserate with that is the rather odd pull quote for Yrump. A line of platitude any of the others coulda said.

Off on the same shelf the supermarket has stocked the impulse buy magazine commemorating The West Wing. Probably a seasonal idea, Seinfeld and Friends was just done and moving to election time — there is this for weary liberals who don’t want to see forced neutrality on Trump.

Break the narrative

Monday, October 5th, 2020

So… Is Trump’s covid-19 case a positive or a negative for his re-election chances?

A… Positive… I guess. Or. Nothing much. It splatters some empathy for the guy — as evidenced by Biden folding his negative ads.

I heard it articulated by a conspiracy-minded talk radio show, but it followed my thought on what this 538 is missing. You craft the narrative. “Hero’s Journey”. THis is the part where the battered protagonist rejuvenates and or finds wisdom in the cave.

I see a Trump ad at youtube (paid content). The title refers to Trump as a “warrior” the clip simply being his comments on his positive testing. The idea now is that “a real warrior is battling within” — I believe expressed by the Star Trek Klingon character Worf.

The one problem with this comes in Trump’s need for surrounding himself with his teeming masses. So he rides off and waves from a car, disrupting this “covid 19 quarantine as reset” narrative.

Daniel Burke woos the Zoomer and Boomer demographics

Friday, October 2nd, 2020

I. The Museum of Weird and Demented Religious Tracts of Bellaire, Ohio has a new exhibit.
will draw him, at least.

Why they couldn’t go with this one, dunno…

It is funny, as Lyndon gets tagged (incorrectly as the case may be) with that “neo-nazi” tag sometimes. Misnomers abound: What is this on “Obama in black face?. If it is that Joker image being referenced, that came from elsewhere — popularized in part by Alex Jones but not originated there.

This, on the other hand.

Just one of many… Worth noting, James Bevel was the guy at the time and he was guilty of the supposed sins the org was revealing.

Ii. A response that this twitter feed cannot make due to it being a fill in blank randomizer bot: it is all at the proper voice modulation.
In other bot stoppings: Bet you didn’t know he had a daughter. (Then again, he also apparently played Lou Reed’s most infamous album. (Can j-pop be recognizable at 432?)
Rmember seeing Labouche live?

Y’know, the funny thing is I think r cam might be serious. Explore the conspiracy starting with the question “Who profits?”

It comes up in the answer on “huh?”

the esoteric joke.

III. Election 1988 headlines… If the org had arbitrarily chosen the other partisan side, they coulda stuck with it for claims of prescience.
And now as a rejoinder to the lpactwitter war-room.

Here is the analogy of Bakker cell-mating with Larouche to… Trump joining Snowden in Russia in some fantasy future.

Oh, the company you keep, … For the life of me, a quick google search and I have no idea what the Mccrae – Larouche link is.
another “link” : Igor Kochran, though this one I have a better gauge for meaning.

Sure, but it clashes with quotes from 2008.

The Jews are responsible for all the assassinations.

Y’know, I don’t think the “Operation Northwoods! Operation Northwoods!” line ever came from Larouche. (And is she classifying Tarpley as Larouche?)
That being said…

For the life of me, I can’t make heads or tails of Larouche’s stated reasoning for support of O’Malley in 2016, except it contradicts the repeated rah rah cheerleading that came with that repeated Fox Business Channel quoting to line him up with FDR. Is this a case of deployimg that “noble lie” the org always placed on the Straussians?
Overall, I do sense a bit of knowledge with that “28 roommates” tweet.

Hey! One of those “memes”.

IV. Becoming a line o convention: Larouche Wright Brothers now QAnon Apollo Program.
But maybe this is why Daniel Burke saw fit to disavow them.

Skipping to the bottom line, which frankly appears to bein line with the current Larouche line that “God won’t let you destroy his leader”, or however that creepy meme goes.

V. To any and all issues, the larouchian response is “exonerate larouche too”.
Though these requests to any and all figures of renown on social media don’t deploy this religious baggage.
(Though, on answering where to go if you become disillusioned by fox news.
And why would someone be aiming to get an audience from the “Zog controls everything, Trump and Biden both” crowd?

We see the larouche twitter war-room deploy the meme weapon calling Larouche “cancelled before cancelled was cool”, sure to win over the burgeoning right wing Zoomer demographic. For the older righties, well, Harley Schlanger and the Band do that “edge of coup” prepper thingy. (Aways away from Daniel Burke in by-gone era… not Trump allies).

VI. saw em at tcu.
and in front of a Manhattan office
Voted for …
So That’s why Cathy Guisewite got cancelled.
Another supporter.

2008 yelling match
Meeting a veteran of Operation Mop Up.
no girls???
USYD mid oughts.
fun like the jehovah’s witnesses
THe modern equivalent to the olde “He’s still alive???” response.

As Trump touts the achievements of Space Force in remarks in Middletown, a number of supporters next to the press riser begin a chant of “Pelosi to the moon!”
Remarkably similar to supporters of Lyndon Larouche in late 80’s holding signs inside National Airport ‘Expand NASA’s budget, send Congress to Mars’. Peas in a pod….

VII. The people are lining up for the schiller institute youth web conference.
Reportedly, This past weekend there was an International Youth conference (the third since May) over Zoom by the Schiller Institute. I never saw more than 170 persons watching at any one time., which is 170 more than zero. Musta been drawn in by Joycelyn Elders.

what a weird degrees of separation and forced at that manner of disparaging a guy.

VIII. Interlude to other guy: Funny thing: Bob Avakian and his rcp has had a larger presence in this city, such as it is, than the Larouchies — who at least showed up once in a while during the Bush and … At least early Obama years.

Well, Bob Avakian has taken a fig leaf of strategy from the Larouchies and are campaigning for one of the two party selections, overthrowing forty-five years of sitting them out to back Biden against Trump. Counterpunch explores whether they (or os it “he”?) have any point in finding Trump fascist as compared to anyone else, or even if so if it follows Avakian prediction what breed of fascism it is supposed to be.

We await to see how much effect Avakian’s endorsement to vote for Biden has on the election. It has been noticed.. Funny, it dors read something of the initoal Larouche literature on Martin O’Malley.

IX. Here is one man weighing the New Jersey senate election options. (Any word on them following current palace politics?) Watch out for the spite vote, though.
Daniel Burke’s presence on the ballot encourages schemes of entryism infiltration. It will be interesting to see how the Larouche party does in comparison with Of By For, for example. (Intersting to see if either candidate complains of the “butterfly ballot” effect, claiming misvotes.)

Here we have Burke questing for votes… Where?

Up ballot still gets you… Maybe?

Win a vote,
Lose a vote.

One media interview with Burke is Caleb Maupin .
It’s extremely concerning that you’re platforming the LaRouche movement. You wrote about LaRouche in Workers’ World calling him a fascist back in 2009, cannot for the life of me figure out why you would platform this guy.

X. Chinese Democracy.

Concerning themselves with the this thingDid Xi pick up the b and r from larouche?. The John Birch Society weighs in.. (The John Birch Society, seen here quoting approvingly as a source Webster Tarpley.)

Maybe it is, sure, but back from the old days when it was something else.

And, Point. Counter-point.

Rounding up if we must and William Jones and eir don’t come up until the last paragraph. (William Jones … Don’tbring up Trump on this.

Trump allies responding to news of his coronavirus: Here is the Larouche org and here is Georgia Senate candidate Kelly Loeffler.

XI. Point: (lpac report of their presence at a right wing rally). Slogan of stopping a coup against the President,” accompanied by a photo of Obama and Biden with a shared Hitler mustache. Another, new sign read: “Donald Can’t Do It by Himself.”
