The new global Polarization Paradigm plays out in the #RussiaProtests

Sunday, March 26th, 2017


The emerging polarization paradigm that will plague the global community for the foreseeable future is one that can best be summed up as “traditional values” versus “anti-corruption.”


1) In St. Petersburg, an unsanctioned opposition rally was held just next to another unconnected gathering of demonstrators who rallied for traditional values.

2) Moment anti-corruption #protest initiator #Navalny detained by police in #Moscow


Traditional values are objectivity incarnate, scientific ruthlessness, clinical sterility, pragmatic judgment.


Anti-corruption is capriciousness, subjective shades of gray, emotional superstitions, conjuring of the fantastical.


Traditional values are stoicism.


Anti-corruption is blue hair.











The God Emperor’s new clothes leave a failed impression at the Obamacare Ball. Now we await the “explosion.”

Sunday, March 26th, 2017


There is that cadre of Trump supporters who faithfully rally around his “failures” as redefined extensions of a masterful and omniscient psychological control of the narrative on his part.


3D chess, they call it.


Even in the throes of defeat, they persistently maintain that President Trump is the machination behind everything and that the latest setback is nothing but a strategic maneuver in his plan to attain supremacy/victory/control. In the latest instance of a “setback,” the Ryan/TrumpCare vs ObamaCare debacle (and it is that), some elements of this cadre has suggested that Trump planned the doomed Republican foray into an Obamacare replacement, including last week’s chaotic, failed splendor.  They believe it was part of a foreseen game of 3D chess initiated by Trump to rid the House Speaker role of Paul Ryan, and even more optimistically, to ultimately install a much more palatable, conservative replacement of Obamacare.


This cadre gives President Trump too much credit. While Trump certainly possesses masterful skills of manipulation and interpersonal prescience, I don’t believe the Obamacare battle displayed these mythical qualities. I suspect that players in the Republican party with the fiercest determination to bury  Obamacare were also the most impatient and forceful.  Ryan/Trumpcare did not deserve such an early day in court.  Barack Obama’s health care plan, fraught with intricacies and dystopian bureaucracy, did the Democratic mentality proud for its bottomless pit of convoluted regulation and governmental impositions under the guise of helping (crutching) the poor and the elderly. In a relatively short time, Obamacare has become entrenched in American’s entitlement paradigm and exterminating it from the landscape is no simple feat.  As such, any attempt to seriously tackle the formidable beast requires 1) Time, and 2) Ammunition. President Trump’s new administration, only 2 months old, has fostered neither.


Ryan/Trumpcare was a rushed, tepid vehicle prodded on by the juvenile rashness of various players in the GOP. One would assume that national politicians possess enough intelligence and maturity to comprehend the concept of “deferred reward,” but judging by the premature ejaculation their tepid offering represents, this was obviously not the case.


Whereas I don’t believe that our President molds reality (“God Emperor”), I do believe his greatest skill is the ability to manipulate existing reality into auspicious narratives for his cause.  This is the key strength of Donald Trump; I believe has that rare gift known as the ability to “make lemonade from life’s lemons” and when defeat arises, he instinctively launches into damage control mode and ingeniously initiates narratives (memes) which blur the sharp edges of ill fate and in fact, magically steer them in his favor. This modus operandi then reveals itself as an ingenious contortion of reality on Trump’s part that in reality, happened in reaction, not in anticipation. But when we view it from our backward-peering perspective, the illusion is that he molded reality when in fact all he did was to restructure our perceptions.


And let’s be frank. Ryan/Trumpcare is a steaming pile of shit and the “restructuring” and political cosmetic surgery required of President Trump to paint this in his administration’s favor will be a difficult, trying journey, indeed.


The failure of Ryan/Trumpcare is too vivid and magnified in the public mind right now. The Left (and its lackeys in the MSM) is starved for victory and entitlement gloating rights, any victory, and the downfall of the GOP’s health counteroffer presents a collective cranny where it can stick its smug erection.


That cranny is Ryan/Trumpcare and the MSM has unveiled all discovered adjectives of the English language in its hyperbolic reporting of Donald Trump’s “RESOUNDING DEFEAT.”


The Left has proven to be as ungracious in “victory” as it has been in defeat. Trump’s victory and Presidential offensive since January has created a vacuum that has eschewed all liberal cries for attention, but as his vulnerability is measured within the context of his first Presidential failure, the left has rushed in with a gleeful, raucous parade of obnoxious quasi-victory which ultimately doesn’t count for much, at least superficially. The problem is not Ryan/Trumpcare, but what its defeat implies for Trump’s short-term policy goals.


Now that the “God Emperor” has been revealed to be human, his detractors are likewise empowered to exert their strength and to rebuff the dictates of the leader.



It’s doubtful that President Trump, if he truly was God Emperor status, in charge of the vagaries of fate, would have traded the empowerment of his enemies and detractors, and the concomitant deferment of his other agendas, for the ultimate triumph (a crap shoot) of a conservative health plan. Simple logic and seasoned experience tells us that an incoming presidential administration, for the sake of perception of command in the public’s eye, should begin its reign with victories; a string of victories which, however minor they may be, still set the tone of irreproachable power and reign.


No incoming President wants to embark on his maiden term with a high-profile PR defeat buzzing in the public’s ears, for it endangers his peripheral agendas;  defeat, when you are untested and unproven, rankles on your prowess.  You slip down a few rungs which you need to laboriously scale to resume your starting point.  Meanwhile, you are one day, one month, closer to the next election.


All Trump can do now is react to this defeat and set a narrative in which innate GOP weakness is magically cast as a preordained strength.  The first step in his resuscitation plan addressing the health care fiasco was to imprint the “Obamacare exploding” imagery in our minds.


The God Emperor wore his new clothes to the Obamacare party, and it wasn’t pretty.





When old news reports attack and remind us that pizza was on our minds before it was known as pizza…

Sunday, March 26th, 2017


Our culture rapidly evolves in sync with technology. And in the wake of technology’s rapid, nearly exponential advances in the past decade (especially of the digital sort), aspects of social culture are rendered unrecognizable in a few years’ time.


For instance, the MSM once reported on “things which shall not be uttered” and which weren’t entirely favorable to Democrats and/or Hillary Clinton.


This, from 2013, when “pizza” was merely a thing we ate.





The road to Mehiel is paved with good intentions…

Saturday, March 25th, 2017


Social justice is color blind.  Counter-Darwinian sensibilities speak for themselves…


Corrina Mehiel, a thirty-four-year-old white female, was found dead inside a basement apartment on the 600 block of 14th Street NE, Washington, DC. She had been tied up and stabbed to death. Her body was found on March 22nd. She had last been seen with friends on Sunday, March 19th. She was supposed to leave the DC Area the next morning.


Her 2004 blue Toyota Prius was stolen. It has Kentucky license plate number 722RMY. Police have released pictures of a black male that they believed was driving her stolen car when he stopped at convenience stores in Beltsville and Laurel, Maryland.


Mehiel is described as an artist and dedicated social justice activist. According to her friend Mel Chin, visiting professor at GW’s Corcoran School of Art and Design, “Corrina was a feminist she wanted to end to violence against women. She was committed to fairness and justice, and always fought for the rights of others. For example, she’d be the first to point out that victims of violence in D.C. are disproportionately people of color.”




Trayvon Martin series is headed to your living room; thanks to Jay Z for perpetuating bottomless stupidity (and colorful ad placement).

Thursday, March 23rd, 2017


Imagine the possibilities…



Shawn “Jay Z” Carter and the Weinstein Company are partnering on an ambitious series of film and television projects about Trayvon Martin, Variety has learned.


The indie label and the rap icon won a heated bidding war for the rights to two books — “Suspicion Nation: The Inside Story of the Trayvon Martin Injustice and Why We Continue to Repeat It” and “Rest in Power: The Enduring Life of Trayvon Martin.” The 2012 shooting of the 17-year-old Martin sparked a national debate about racial profiling and inequities of the criminal justice system that brought about the Black Lives Matter movement. The African-American high school student was killed by George Zimmerman, a 28-year-old mixed race Hispanic man, who was a member of the neighborhood watch in his Florida community. He claimed he shot Martin, who was unarmed, in self defense after the two became involved in a physical altercation. Zimmerman’s acquittal on a second-degree murder charge inspired protests around the country.



…for a little clever, cinematic ad placement.






And if they can convince us that Trayvon was a homo, they kill two birds and cover an entire separate category of socially empowered victimization.  All in one socially conscious Weinstein leftist project.
