    US politics: No sub rosa Omarosa

    "The truth is not the truth!" -- so quoth the only competition for the orange nazi's "hair," Rudy Giuliani.

    US politics: No sub rosa Omarosa

    Glad to awaken to the news that the how-many-millions-is-this-gonna-cost-again? military parade to honor the orange nazi's destruction of everything even barely decent has been postponed at the advise and consent of the pentagon. Particularly so as today am heading up to the Saratoga battlefields of 1777. Puleeze though, folks, don't ever call Malania a supermodel. She was barely a model at all, never even coming within solid bookings for three months ahead. Her real career was the eye candy, maybe plus benefits, circuit.

    The overt, by military force coup d'├ętat happens then. He ain't, and his nazis ain't ever leaving 'office.'

    Only by the treasonous. Which conviction is all the more strong today after spending several hours in the Saratoga Cottage where President Grant finished his brilliant Personal Memoirs, and then died of throat and tongue cancer.

    They did not. Read Lee's papers for one instance. He put his state above loyalty to the Constitution. He said so.

    SUBURRA: The Series (Netflix)

    I, for one, have read the books, in fact! They are a valuable compare and contrast with the series.

    Don't many a fella go to punk rock performances to get their violence on? So what's he got to complain about -- he got more than his money's worth.

    And even as we post the orange nazi is on a purge, firing everyone he sees in Intelligence and other agencies. Voters who despise racism and bigotry DO NOT VOTE FOR RACISTS AND BIGOTS. What is so difficult to understand about that hmmmmmmmmmmmmm?

    I believe you have forgotten that enormous watershed event in US history, officially titled The War of the Rebellion. Look at the numbers of the serving officers of the Federal army of the time who saw it otherwise, particularly Robert E. Lee. Your faith that somewhere is at least some official, public institution that is going to save your, your family's and the nation's ass could almost be touching if wasn't helping to create such tragedy. There is nothing that is public, official, elected or otherwise that isn't corrupted beyond redemption, if not for the sake of greed, for the sake of power, for the sake of hatred. The only thing that can save us now, redeem us now, is you, is us, not any official entity.

    Yah, put your faith in the military to save the republic. You know from history and current events throughout the 20th and 21st century, how that ends don't you? If not, hint: Arab Spring, for a single instance. The whole history of Latin America, almost. It's something that so far has never happened in the US. But if it does one cannot reasonably expect a different outcome than other places.

    No direct election of senators is how it was before the 17th amendment. How making them Lords is going to help our political catastrophe is impossible to fathom. Also the argument that not all people who vote for the orange nazi are racists -- then how in the world did he get elected in the first place? And don't say it's because the left talks about racism and that makes voters so mad they decide to vote for a racist. You see what kind of argument that is, don't you?

    The thing in terms of this issues is that Kavanagh has established a long record in action as well as writen opinion, that justices have the right and obligation to go looking for issues they themselves believe make a likely Constitutional examination even when there are no legal cases about such matters pending anywhere. This is particularly important as Kavanagh has written copiously since at least the end of the 1990's that no sitting POTUS should be or can be sworn, indicted or anything for criminal behaviors. That is his interpretation of the Constitution.

    Outlander II: Sing me a Song...

    If Murtagh has the role in the books I'm guessing they put him in, we will see disappointingly little of him. But then, this is where the show often takes liberties with the books' narrative, and for the better, in my opinion. BTW, one might justifiably wonder, since I seem to have such a low opinion of the books, or at least of the later ones, why is it I've ended up reading all of them, hmmmmmmmm? It's because it's taken me many years to read them, sometimes a single one of them for two years! This is because I read them while traveling, when there is very little reason or opportunity to read anything. Somehow, in these constricted reading circumstances, these are the perfect books, because they take little focus and attention. Because of the endless repetition of the daily and mundane, particularly the increasingly disgusting parts of it when transported to the rawness of colonial North America's Atlantic coast, while so little of actual narrative plot and story happens, one isn't in danger of forgetting anything essential. The very repetition becomes soothing in some ways, particularly when going on long flights overseas, and the flight's in-air entertainment has little if anything to one's taste, and the offerings remain the same going and returning. Nor do they thrown one precipitously back into the world from which one has been far away, which these days particularly is the real rest of leaving the country of our voter registration. And, as mentioned, these books, weighing in 1500 + pp. at least, last forever! Just leave it in your carry on from one trip to another.

    His only safety is never stepping down, which means no new elections, or purging everyone from the voter rolls that hasn't taken a personal loyalty oath to him. I'm unclear about this but aren't many of the crimes Manafort's committed liable on a state rather than federal level, and thus not qualified for a federal pardon (not that this would stop the orange nazi from so declaring pardon if so moved, doubtless).

    This does look good in that slick and solid manner of international prestige criminality.
