Punch Him In The Guts

Why do you talk about Aldous Huxley?

Why do you talk about Julian Huxley?

Because you’ve been programmed to do so.

You’ve been programmed by the powers that be that these men are important people to be talked about.

I reject Aldous Huxley.

I reject Julian Huxley.

I reject the entire Huxley family.

Who died and made them boss?

I reject Oxford.

I reject Great Britain.

I reject the UK’s peerage.

I reject the royal family. I reject the elites and their supposed authority to tell us who is important and who is not important.

I reject the blubbering fat slob, Winston Churchill.

I reject Harvard University, the new King Louis, the new cocksucker in chief.

You are just as important as they are.

They are not to be talked about.

I reject William Shakespeare.

I reject all British blowhard poets and writers.

I reject John Keats.

I reject – and resent – them being slammed down our throats without our permission.

Most of all, and let me emphasize again: I reject William Shakespeare.

How long will Shakespeare keep abusing us?

How long must people grit their teeth as professors who are controlled by the powers that be cram 16th century Elizabethan English down their throats.

I reject all this authority.

These people have only been talked about because the elites cram it into our brains.

These so-called great men are a lie.

They are a lie that exists to cement the power of the elites over our minds.

This person is important. That person is not important.

Say the elites: We are the guardians of truth. We are the elites. You are not one of us. You are nothing. You will obey us.

Fuck you, New Yorker magazine.

Fuck you, New York Times.

Fuck you, Newsweek Magazine.

Fuck you, Anna Wintour.

Fuck Vogue.

You have zero authority to foist your silly opinions upon us as to who and what is important.

Aldous Huxley is a fraud.

No, he’s a commodity.

No, he’s an instrument, a tool of the elites.

He’s just a name that is dropped in there to intimidate you, to make you think that they, the elites, the guardians of fake truth, are important and you are not.

Quit speaking about Aldous Huxley.

Your poverty is directly correlated to the power of the blunt instrument known as Aldous Huxley that is wielded against your head, day, after day, month, after month, year after year.

“Ah, yes,” speaks the professor, “as Huxley noted in Brave New World, blah blah blah blah … blah blah blah blah, blah blah … and furthermore … blah blah blah blah blah blah … when I visited England and spoke to Huxley’s historian … and now, if you excuse me, I have to prepare for my meeting with the President … thank you, thank you … we should all get behind the President’s plan to support Ukraine against Russian aggression … and don’t forget to wear your mask outside especially when speeding along on a bicycle at 20 miles an hour … blah blah blah blah blah blah … superspreader event …. blah blah blah …”

Announce Aldous Huxley to the world as a fraud.

Punch him in the guts.

Again, and again, and again.

Sincerely,

The Racket

War is a racket, and the wealthy elite who control our politicians know it.

They use people like Lindsey Graham, who is a true believer, to wage war against the imagined barbarian beast.

Yet the Russians are not barbarians, and, as was explained to me many decades ago, when I was a true believer, Russia is not a country of bloodthirsty Neanderthals.

Russia has contributed vastly to the arts, literature, physics, sports, ballet, and many other areas of endeavor.

Rudolf Nureyev was Russian.

Mikhail Baryshnikov is a Russian.

Alexander Solzhenitsyn was Russian.

Anton Chekhov , one of my favorite writers, was Russian.

If you’re a chemist, your periodic table was discovered by a Russian – Mendeleev.

What Russia is trying to do in Ukraine is protect its own integrity much as the United States would do, and has done, in a similar situation.

And as far as the argument of Russia grabbing land is concerned, the United States has no firm grounding in criticizing Russia.

The United States waged war against Mexico and in time confiscated their land south of the Nueces river, plus nearly all of the Southwest and what we know today as the state of California.

So who is the pot calling the kettle black?

What we have today in Ukraine is the greedy elite from the United States, unsatisfied with the billions that they already possess, desirous of waging war, killing hundreds of thousands of innocent people in order to make a few extra bucks.

It’s a racket.

Moreover it’s a dishonor to ourselves as Americans.

The Dallas Cowboys: What To Do?

I’m going to throw in my own two cents about what the Dallas Cowboys should do this off-season.

I’ve been hearing from a lot of Dallas Cowboy fans because I live near a lot of Dallas Cowboy fans.

This is all part of God’s punishment.

I can be more objective because I grew up a Philadelphia Eagles fan.

I’m not easily snowed by Cowboys propaganda, nor am I depressed when the Cowboys lose.

Indeed, I am elated because the Cowboys deserve it. They deserve it because they and their fans are spoiled little babies who delusionally believe that the Cowboys are America’s team. They believe that it’s the duty of the Philadelphia Eagles, the New York Giants, the Washington Commanders, and, yes, the San Francisco 49ers to lay down and die before them.

Currently almost every Cowboys fan is calling for Dak Prescott to be traded or fired. They also want to move on from Zeke Elliott.

They share the mentality of most sportscasters who fervently believe that someone has to go, that someone has to be fired.

It’s a given, right?

I don’t agree.

You can’t blame this loss or any loss on any one individual Cowboy.

The reason the Cowboys lost is because the San Francisco 49ers were and are a better team.

The truth hurts, but it’s true.

I’ll repeat it for the Cowboys fans. The San Francisco 49ers were and are a better team.

Once you the Cowboys fam understand that, then you are able to stop blaming any one particular individual.

You start focusing on the team.

Let me state a simple truth for you.

It is the team’s responsibility to overcome all obstacles, internal and external, that are presented to it in its quest score more points than the opposition. Any failure to do so is the responsibility of the team.

Burn it into your memory.

If the team loses, it’s because the team lost.

You can’t blame it on the referees.

You can’t blame it on the weather.

You can’t blame it on blue uniforms.

You can’t blame it on some arcane statistic from the past.

You can’t blame it on a bad bounce.

You can’t blame it on the quarterback.

You can’t blame it on the coach.

I repeat what I said before so that it will sink in.

It is the team’s responsibility to overcome all obstacles, internal and external, that are presented to it in its quest score more points than the opposition. Any failure to do so is the responsibility of the team.

It does no good to point fingers.

It does no good to cast blame.

Whatever the team is, its players are stuck with each other. It’s a marriage. Sometimes it’s a bad marriage, but it is a marriage.

Whatever the faults of the team are, those players are chained at the hip, and they’re going to have to figure it out together.

It’s not a matter of drafting a new quarterback.

It’s not a matter of getting a new coach.

The players that the Cowboys currently have are plenty good enough to win a Super Bowl.

The coach is plenty good enough to win a Super Bowl.

They’re just going to have to figure it out.

Now, your married life can be a dream if you choose to support each other, recognize each other’s weaknesses, and work together to overcome them.

Or, your marriage can be miserable if you choose to knock each other down, beat each other up, and tear each other apart.

It’s your choice.

Sincerely,

A War of Nothingness

The war in Ukraine is a war of nothingness.

It was created by the oligarchs for the oligarchs.

No fruit will come out of this war.

The inflation and higher energy costs occurring within the countries of Europe was entirely avoidable.

Here in America, money will now go to Ukraine – instead of fixing homelessness.

Why is this?

Is Russia a threat to our national security?

Absolutely not.

Ever since I was a little boy and before, our leaders have programmed us to believe that Russia is a threat to our existence.

The programming was so pervasive and bad that Hollywood made a movie entitled: The Russians are Coming, the Russians are Coming.

We were told that Russia was an expansionist empire whose goal was to destroy us.

As it turns out it is America that is the expansionist empire.

We are the ones tear-assing all over the globe in the name of peace, security – and western prosperity, of course.

We are the nation that spends close to $1 trillion on defense and war.

Yet what good has come of this for the American people?

Polarization of wealth is at an all-time high.

Homelessness abounds.

Vast parts of our inner cities lie in ruins.

There is no decent healthcare system in the United States that can provide affordable healthcare for average people.

It’s a greed-based system where an EpiPen that should cost $50 now costs up to $700.

We don’t even have a good rail system that can effectively transport masses of people in case of an emergency.

Our leaders don’t give a fuck about us.

Case in point: $100 billion for Ukraine, and very little for student debt relief and homelessness.

It’s a national disgrace.

The war in Ukraine is intended to make the wealthy even wealthier.

The people of Ukraine will be the big losers in this.

They will borrow hundreds of billions of dollars and still lose this war.

Then they will be forced to pay the money back to the United States, to the IMF, to other western nations.

They won’t have the money.

What will ensue in the Ukraine is a penny-pinching austerity that will last generations.

Because they won’t have the money to pay back their debts, they will be compelled in time to sell off vital national assets.

Who is not going to be hurt?

Russia.

Russia won’t be hurting at all.

In fact, the people in the recently annexed territories of Ukraine, who are now part of Russia, will thrive.

The difference will be like night and day.

The difference will be like East Germany and West Germany.

The difference will be like Haiti and the Dominican Republic.

Everywhere in the world that the United States goes, poverty follows.

Haiti, Indonesia, and the Philippines are prime examples.

Throw in the countries of Central America to boot.

You make a deal with our leaders in the United States, you lose.

All of these countries have an extremely wealthy upper class allied with our leaders in the United States of America.

They rule over a sea of poverty in their native countries.

That’s what will happen with Ukraine.

And as Ukraine becomes impoverished, so will the people of the United States of America.

The funding of Ukraine now is just an appetizer.

Trillions will follow – all to the detriment of the people of United States of America.

The only people who will benefit off this are the wealthy elite.

As I say, it is a war of nothingness.

Sincerely,

We Know the Truth – Maybe

How many of you are thinking right now that this case against Brian Kohberger, the alleged murderer of the four Idaho students, is incomplete?

There are a lot of questions to be asked.

Putting aside DNA evidence for the time being, why would Kohberger target these four Idaho students?

In the seven weeks since the murder, not one person has come forward to state that Kohberger knew any of these four students.

So how did he meet them?

How would he know where they lived?

How does he know anything about the house?

For all he knew a burly cop with a gun might have lived in that house.

So how does he develop the guts to go into that house not knowing that a person with a gun might be living there?

He could have known that if he had been in that house numerous times.

Yet no one has come forward to put him in that house in anyway.

Isn’t that strange?

Maybe it was an inside job. Maybe Kohberger was a murderer for hire.

I am concerned with how this case was handled.

If the police suspected him when he was living in Pullman, why didn’t they bring him down to the station and ask him questions?

That’s the traditional way.

Many suspects incriminate themselves during the interview process.

Wouldn’t it have been better for them to bring him down to the station, ask him questions, get a DNA sample there, if he so agreed, and listen to his side of the story.

How many times have we seen suspects brought down to the station to be asked questions?

A lot of times.

Perhaps he has an alibi that is rocksolid.

My concern is that by not bringing him down to the station, by not giving him the opportunity to clear himself, the police fostered and encouraged a bias toward convicting him.

It almost seems as if they didn’t want to know that he could be potentially cleared.

Perhaps there was too much pressure upon the police to solve this case.

The white Hyundai ELANTRA is hardly evidence enough in itself.

The Hyundai ELANTRA is a very popular car. Looking at the production numbers there were easily 100,000 of these vehicles sold per year for the last 10 years

That makes approximately 1 million of these vehicles on the road in America.

Assuming that one and every five of these is white colored (White is a popular color. Just look on the road the next time you are driving.), that yields, given a population of 325 million, approximately one white ELANTRA for every 1625 people

Given that there are approximately 50,000 people between Pullman and Moscow, plus another 25,000 in the surrounding area, that would make for approximately 50 white ELANTRA’s.

Factor in that the ELANTRA is a car more likely to be owned by college students, and you can estimate that they’re probably 60 to 70 white ELANTRA’s in the area.

So, having a white ELANTRA is hardly enough to convict Kohberger.

Let’s not also forget that the police were looking for an ELANTRA of model year between 2011 and 2013

Kohberger’s white ELANTRA is a 2015 model.

As far as the cell phone records are concerned, a cell phone tower usually handles a radius of a mile or two before handing off to another cell tower.

Even though Kohberger’s cell was found around where the four students lived, there are a lot of eating and shopping establishments within that radius

Now, to the DNA evidence. From what we know so far, they did not have prior to the arrest a direct sample of DNA from Brian Kohberger.

They used genetic genealogy to arrive at Brian Kohberger as a suspect. Well, genetic genealogy is not foolproof. Wrong accusations have been made in the past.

The DNA they retrieved came from the sheath of the knife that allegedly was used to kill the four Idaho students. It was left behind.

What!

Why would such a careful killer leave behind the sheath of a knife. And if he did, why would one of the students on the bottom floor not see him carrying a knife on his way out the door?

And why would this student having viewed the perpetrator, allegedly Kohberger, at around 4:30 in the morning, not call the police right away?

If you’re that scared, why would you not call?

Does anybody think this is strange?

It is strange.

In the field of medicine, we build a diagnosis from the bottom up. We take a history first, then we do a physical exam. Then we order tests after that.

The test results generally should fall within the context of the history and physical. If they do not, then we begin to question the validity of the tests.

The same should apply to the investigation of a murder.

This is why law-enforcement is encouraged to build a case from the bottom up, the traditional way.

This does not seem to be done in this case.

From my perspective it appears that the police relied too heavily on the DNA evidence and built this case from the top down.

This is not to say that Kohberger didn’t do it.

But maybe he was a murderer for hire. Maybe there are other people involved. Maybe

But maybe he was a murderer for hire. Maybe there are other people involved. Maybe Kohberger knew people who had it in for the four Idaho students.

A better way to solve this case might be to compare all the people who own a white ELANTRA in the area with all the people who knew or who came in contact with the four Idaho students. Then compare those lists with all the people who had contact with Kohberger.

It might be fruitful.

Religion and War

Religion is a great thing.

There’s a lot of value in it.

There’s also a lot of bullshit.

The main thing that’s wrong with religion is that people don’t even know why they’re in it.

They’re in it because their parents shanghaied them into that religion when they were little children.

They were a child; they had no choice.

Their parents told them: This is where you’re going, this is what you’re going to believe, and we’re not taking any answer-back.

It was compulsory.

Back in the day, if you challenged your parents you got spanked.

You believe what you believe not necessarily because it’s the best thing to believe, but because your parents browbeat and propagandized you into that religion.

So what we have today are millions of people walking around as true believers, thinking that their religion is the greatest thing since apple pie, and the only reason they believe it is because a) their parents told them so, and b) they never had the time, guts, nor inclination to question it.

Why don’t the majority people have the guts to question their religion?

They don’t have the guts to question it because they don’t want to question it.

They don’t want to question it because they fear being ostracized by their family and their friends, or that they will go to hell if they do.

And because they don’t question their religion we live in a world that is less workable than it could be.

There are only a small percentage of the people who have the courage, the guts and the desire to question a religion, to adopt a new religion, or move outside of it.

Consequently, if you are a rebel, if you have the guts to move to a different faith, you can see that religious wars are stupid.

Unfortunately, you are in the minority.

Compounding the misery is that the politicians use religion in order to sanctify the wars.

The politicians understand that it’s very difficult to sell war on the evidence. Of course it’s difficult. That’s because almost all wars are fought for money. Regular people want to know why we can’t just share. Leaders and politicians aren’t in the habit of sharing. That’s because there is something wrong with them. They have a medical problem.

So what they do is sell war through the irrationality of religion.

God approves of this war.

By fighting this war, they say, you are defeating the infidel.

That’s an easy sell. Linking God and war is one of their magic tricks.

And that’s why you see so many reverends, ministers, imams, and priests cozying up to the politicians, engaging them at prayer breakfasts.

What a joke that is!

Those prayer breakfast exist to sanctify war.

So if you’re living in war, or a constant state of war, which we currently do, which the Romans did, which the British did, you now know why.

You were browbeaten and propagandized into your religion. Furthermore, you were taught that your religion was the one true religion, and that everyone else’s was a mortal threat to your security.

Thus war.

Thus big bucks for our crummy leaders and their puppet-masters in Corporate America.

The Idaho Murders

I’m going to tell you what I wrote a few days ago before Brian Kohberger was arrested for the murder of the four Idaho students.

*

Have you been following the four students in Idaho who were stabbed to death this past November?

Do you have a theory as to who did it?

I do.

Since everyone else has an idea, I will offer my opinion just to put it on the record.

I don’t think what I’m saying is original. I’m sure other people have thought the same thing, but here goes.

I don’t think it was one person. I think there were at least two people, possibly four.

I am leaning toward four people.

I think these people were incels, involuntary celibates.

And I think they knew the people they killed.

I think they were in that house before.

I think they are most likely students.

And I think they were watching and waiting for their intended victims to come home.

That means they live nearby.

I don’t think it’s possible for one person to stab four people to death in one sitting.

It’s not easy to stab someone to death. Frequently, the person has to make multiple stabbing motions.

If there had only been one person doing the killing, the other party, not being stabbed, would be able to get out of the room or do some loud screaming, which would alert the people on the other floors.

For that reason, there had to be at least two people.

I don’t think it’s even possible for two people to stab four people to death.

This killing was premeditated and highly planned.

Why did they kill the four students?

Because the students represented everything that the killers were not.

The murdered students were socially adept, popular, and sexually active.

Moreover, they were happy people

The people who killed the students were most likely involuntary celibates, who were not socially skilled, not particularly popular, and definitely not socially active.

They didn’t understand who they were or why they were the way they were

They were two or four students who found each other

They shared their misery with each other, and their misery amplified.

One day one of them probably said to the others: We have to do something about this,

As to why they selected the four murdered students? They were convenient. They were nearby, and they knew them.

What the killers wanted was payback against God for making them the way they were.

And so they did it.

*

It’s difficult for me to believe that Brian Kohberger did this on his own. How is it possible to repeatedly stab one individual and not have the other people react?

How does he prevent the other people from reacting?

How does he know where the people are in the house?

How does is he know that there aren’t a few big burly guys also living in the house? How does he know who’s awake and who’s not?

To kill all the students on his own without them screaming he would’ve had to shoot them all with tranquilizer darts and then murder them.

Or he would have had to slip them drugs.

But if he had done that, they wouldn’t have had defensive wounds.

He had to have had help.

I suppose it’s possible that he could have been waiting in the house for them. He could have then murdered them sequentially. But that’s not what the police are saying.

At any rate, he had to have known the layout of the house. He had to have cased the house, or he knew someone who had.

Taxing the Rich: A Phony Game

Taxing the rich is a phony game promoted by the wealthy to pacify the poor, to fool the poor, to rip off the poor.

It’s also designed to keep the middle class from earning enough money to oppose them – the rich.

The rich control the minds of the poor.

They always have.

To begin with, the upper middle-class are not rich.

Someone making $250,000 a year or $1 million a year is not rich.

Mark Cuban is rich.

Jeff Bezos is rich.

Elon Musk is rich.

These people are worth billions and billions of dollars.

Someone making $1 million a year is not rich.

Nevertheless, the game continues.

Every fucking year we play the same game of taxing the rich.

Let me buy you a ticket on the clue train.

What counts is not the tax rate but the number of dollars that you make.

Who cares if the super rich are paying a 40% tax rate on income over a million a year (they’re not). They are making hundreds of millions of dollars a year.

That still leaves them with an enormous amount of booty each year

That is a bad thing because they use that extra money to buy off politicians and influence policy. The problem there is that they don’t know what the fuck they’re talking about.

What we want to do is increase the amount of money that the poor and the middle class are making.

Unfortunately, that is not rising in proportion to the amount of money that the rich can make.

The tax rate means nothing.

The tax rate doesn’t equalize anything.

If it did, we still wouldn’t have all this massive polization of wealth.

Duh.

Look here, the average line worker at GM in the early 1970s could make $70-$75,000 a year in inflation adjusted dollars without a college education. Plus they enjoyed all sorts of benefits.

That’s not the case for the average worker at Starbucks today who can barely make half that.

What we want to do is create an economy where more people are making more money

That’s not going to happen by raising taxes on middle-class people.

Nor is it going to happen by raising the tax rate on the super rich.

What we need to do is focus on getting more people more money in relation to each other.

Taxing the rich with higher rates is a diversion from what really needs to be done.

We need to stop raping the poor by allowing CEOs and their henchman from awarding themselves stupendously large salaries and stock option packages.

Thank you, Leo Iacocca.

We need to forbid these computer jerkoffs in Palo Alto from “earning” these tremendously large salaries. There’s not a shred of justification for this. Is a computer programmer adding more value than a neurosurgeon? I doubt it.

We need to put a halt to sports personalities and entertainment stars ripping off the public by charging outrageously enormous prices for their services.

We need to place limits on how much celebrities charge for endorsements. You pay for their ill gotten wealth when you pay more for the products they are pitching.

Why can’t we do that? We don’t allow surgeons to charge $10 million for an appendectomy.

We need to start manufacturing things in the United States again – instead of exploiting slaves in Southeast Asia and Haiti.

It’s the number of dollars that you make that makes the real difference in your life, not the tax rate of someone else.

Focusing on the tax rate feeds into the politics of envy.

Focusing on getting you more money is the right approach that we need.

To begin with, everybody should be paying the same tax rate on all monies gained whether it’s discovered, earned or inherited.

A dollar is a dollar is a dollar is a dollar.

That doesn’t mean that we can’t help out the poor who are making less money.

There’s no reason why we can’t continue to provide free services for the poor.

Having the same tax rate for everyone sends a powerful message to members of our society.

It sends a message that you the taxpayer are no better and no less than anyone else.

It gives a sense of value to the average person.

Additionally it gets the filthy rich out of the game of tax avoidance.

The current system of tax loopholes and graduated tax ensures that the rich will continue to avoid tax.

This then leads to the super wealthy and the media they control to play on the politics of envy called: Tax the Rich.

Except that they don’t tax the rich. They tax the middle class and upper middle class into a greater poverty.

See, see, the media puppets of the wealthy elite cry out, we’ve taxed the rich.

Except that they haven’t.

Sincerely,

Gangnam Style and Epics

How do you set out to create an epic?

You can’t.

Many have tried; none have succeeded.

Epics cannot be intentionally created.

They exist.

There is no formula to create an epic.

There is no amount of analysis that will produce an epic.

Gangnam Style is an excellent example.

Gangnam Style is an epic.

The author, Psy, spent 10 years trying to re-create that epic.

He failed.

Epics cannot be created with intention.

The universe rebels against this.

Why?

Why cannot epics be analyzed and machined out?

They just can’t.

If they could’ve been, they would’ve been.

How do we define an epic?

We can no more define an epic than we can define the Tao.

The Tao that can be defined is not the true Tao.

We can only talk about epics. We can approach them and understand general principles, but that does not mean that we can set out to create one.

The Wizard of Oz is an epic.

It was not intended to be an epic. It just became one.

Had the creators tried to make an epic, they would not have succeeded.

Epics don’t try to be epics.

Epics only try to be fun and entertain.

They focus on the basics, putting one foot in front of the other.

Epics don’t know that they are supposed to be serious.

They don’t try to be great.

Epics in the entertainment industry have the right combination of music, originality and movement.

The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

Gangnam Style had the right dancing, the right music, the right video effects in an original and fresh way.

These elements complemented each other in synergy to produce something greater than the addition of each part.

A synergy ensued.

Magic occurred.

Fixing the Homeless with Ukrainian Dollars

I want to throw some numbers at you.

The United States government in the past nine months has appropriated approximately $100 billion for Ukraine.

Meanwhile, homelessness abounds in cities like Los Angeles and Philadelphia.

Have you seen what homelessness looks like in these cities?

One YouTuber has chronicled Kensington Avenue in Philadelphia.

When I saw the video, I thought I was looking at a Hollywood movie.

I’m not kidding.

In one scene in this video there are open trash piles burning in the streets. Just a half a block away is a police station.

It looks like something from the aftermath of a nuclear war.

There are drug addicts and other mentally compromised people walking around doing strange things.

This is the actual state of affairs in America today.

And yet, we are sending $100 billion to Ukraine.

Let me run through the numbers, and hopefully you understand exponents.

1 billion is equal to 10 to the ninth power. 100 billion is equal to ten to the 11th power.

Now, suppose that we built a pod for people to live in that costs $10,000. It would be a bare bones pod, simply intended to get people out of the elements. It need not contain furniture, a kitchen, a media room or any creature comforts.

We could build special pods with chemical toilets, sinks and showers for the same price. We’ve seen these portable units set up at special events.

10,000 is 10 to the fourth power.

If we appropriate $100 billion to building these pods for the homeless, we could construct 10 million of these pods.

10 to the eleventh power divided by 10 to the fourth power is equal to 10 to the seventh power.

10 to the seventh power is equal to 10 million.

10 million!

That’s enough money to build pods for 10 times the number of homeless we have in the United States.

And that could be done with only the money that we’ve appropriated to Ukraine in nine months.

Do you want to know what’s wrong with our government? That’s what’s wrong with our government.

We have a government that’s been hijacked by this greedy, moneygrubbing Harvard cabal that puts profits for corporations above helping our fellow citizens, that believes that war is the best way to run an economy.

Congress wildly cheered the Ukrainian president as he stood before Congress.

He’s another Juan Guaidó.

Our co-opted media compared him to Winston Churchill.

Well, in that respect they were correct. Winston Churchill didn’t give a damn about regular people, and neither does the president of Ukraine.

If he had cared, he would’ve surrendered Ukraine on day one. As it stands now, tens of thousands of Ukrainians have died. Hundreds of thousands have been displaced.

He and his backers don’t care.

For that matter, neither does our corrupt and misguided Congress.

Poor leadership, baby.

Everybody wants to know why Rome collapsed.

Poor leadership.

Our poor leaders are Harvard motherfuckers who stare at themselves in the mirror, who count the ill-gotten dollar bills in their overstuffed bank accounts, and who partake of pheasant and Pouilly-Fuissé at State Dinners – all while homelessness abounds right outside the doors of their emerald-laden palaces.

These are the enemies of America.

These are the courtesans in the court of our new King Louis: the Harvard Cabal.

These are the true Quislings.

Forget about the Russians. Forgot about the Chinese.

Compared to our leaders, the Russians and Chinese are no threat to us at all.

Sincerely,
