UPDATE 5/12/23: Rod Serling’s classic “Twilight Zone” episodes remain some of the best television writing in the medium’s history. His gift was telling huge truths in wonderfully entertaining dramatic nuggets, each usually a half-hour long and still reference points for anyone with eyes open to the whole human story, good and bad.. Even the term “Twilight Zone” has come to mean “unbelievable, weird, shocking….but true.” Like Orwell, he was a great artist who communicated routinely from terrifying depths, and both died young from the exhausting rigors of prophetic creativity. Both laid bare the irrational human behavior that make us rightly fear “things to come.” But great art should also be a pleasure, and Serling’s achievements remain irresistible viewing. Major, enduring kudos to a smalltown American kid with a special knack for telling important stories.
UPDATE 5/9/23: The initial reaction from these quarters hearing the accusations months ago from this Carroll woman about being raped in a Bergdorf’-Goodman changing room by Donald Trump was, and remains, “Oh puleeeeez1”
And what is one to make of the “guilty” verdict of “Liable for rape” and Trump’s reaction (“I have absolutely no idea who this woman is!”)? It brings to mind the Brett Kavanaugh “victim.” As everyone recalls, that woman was a planted, delusional liar put up by Senate Leftists led by Dianne Feinstein to concoct a lurid fantasy of drunken high school sex.
This one is on record saying “It was an episode. It was an action. It was a fight. It was not a crime. It was, I had a struggle with a guy.” She added in the same interview, “I am not — I have not been raped. Something has not been done to me. I fought. That’s the thing.”
As we’re being reminded more each day, we now live in an age where, when politically expedient, we’re lectured that all women are to be believed, and all aggressive men are presumed to be rapists. No doubt the ambiguous verdict as announced has been met with cheers from Trump-haters everywhere, BUT what the hell des “Liable for Rape” mean? Apparently, it’s one thing to rape a woman and equally bad to say, “Sorry, you’re not my type.”
All women are to be believed and their assailants punished unless they’re Juanita Broadrick or Tara Reade or Mary Jo Kopechne. Two credible allegations of rape, one verified case of leaving a young girl to die needlessly. No indictments, no full legal investigations of the prominent Democrat men involved. Or even mild outrage from those cheering the Trump/Carroll verdict. 50% Kafka, 50% “Twilight Zone.”
5/9/23: Hungarian PM Viktor Orban states what more than half the American electorate knew when NOT voting for Joe Biden: “If Trump were President, there would be no war in Ukraine.” Nor would a tidal wave of other nightmares have come to pass. Elections have consequences.
Volodymyr once upon a time, fretting that those endless billions in aid he hopes to get might have to be accounted for…and that they would NOT be limitless.
UPDATE 5/13/23: How better to control the masses than fear. Lately, it’s been a heyday for germaphobes, a “plague” we were told, something terrifying from the dark, dirty past that suddenly, inexplicably, accidentally crept into our modern, healthy lives. The fact that the easily frightened still insist on referring to the worldwide freeze as “The Pandemic” rather than The Lockdowns is their way of prolonging a drama in which they played a part and justifying their support for the epidemic damage done in the name of “safety.”
UPDATE 5/9/23: What’s next? Just how crazy will it get? Are we moving past total absurdity (Joe Biden being the perfect embodiment of that) to the logical next step of a world where all seems to be dead or dying and nothing functions properly (Joe Biden being the perfect embodiment of that).
UPDATE 5/8/23: For those caught up in the absurd New Reality of BrandonWorld and its Chinese masters, will there come a moment of clarity, shock and regret at their dangerous blindness? For such fools, wisdom rarely comes and then, only if there is palpable pain. As often opined, enslavement will come not violently but quietly, in the throes of mass confusion.
UPDATE 5/7/23: The shameless extent of real scandal in our politics has anesthetized the public from any sense of shock or disapproval. The debauchery of Hunter Biden along with the whole Biden family’s financial corruption graphically flashed worldwide for all to see is treated with little more concern than an unflattering tabloid photo. In this degenerative process is the demoralization of a whole society.
UPDATE 5/13/23: There is nothing more disturbing in our national crisis than the Americans incarcerated for their exercise of free speech and non-violent protest. There is no other suitable word more descriptive of this travesty than “Gulag,” directly analogous to the most murderous political regime of the 20th century. Is there anything more evil than the enforced silence surrounding this persecution?
MEMORIAL DAY AND D-DAY
UPDATE 5/11/23: It’s now a whole, legitimized movement coming after the kids, and anyone objecting is to branded domestic terrorists, Nazis, censors, The Enemy.
UPDATE 5/11/23: Watch this deposition and note the total ease with which this prominent doctor dismisses any concerns about sacrificing human life-aborted babies and mentally handicapped children-as guinea pigs in service to the God of Science. According to his Wikipedia biography, he describes himself as having been a young idealist inspired by reading those celebrated literary romances of medicine and research such as “Arrowsmith” and “The Microbe Hunters.” One must ask at what point did this former young idealist morph from the heroic protagonist of the Sinclair Lewis’ novel into a decidedly gray area of medical ethics. (We live in an era of such compromised ethics, judging by the vast numbers of doctors and hospitals who enriched themselves on as many falsely diagnosed Covid-patients as possible while ignoring others in need of medical help.)
One has the choice of being Dr. Scott Atlas and those who signed the Great Barrington Declaration or being Dr. Anthony Fauci and those like him focused on the immense amount of funding, power and prestige that have clouded their moral vision.
UPDATE 5/3/23: Hopefully the public is not still buying the nonsense about ”settled science” and “follow the data” and “95% [or is it 97%] of scientists agree” when faced with the next “scientific” hoax a la Covid hysteria and Climate Change.
UPDATE 5/12/23: Slowly, inexorably, real scientific evidence emerges about the severe damage caused by the mask mania and neurological symptoms in reaction to the “vaccines.”
MEDICAL HELP FROM
UPDATE 5/13/23: One can only hope that the entire gender craze that has taken over politics and even corporate America will be viewed in the (very) near future as a society gone temporarily insane.
UPDATE 5/12/23: Just quote Trans absurdity word for word, and you’ve hit comedy paydirt. The only downside is Ricky Gervais’ senseless qualifier afterwards.
UPDATE 5/11/23: Don’t those going along enthusiastically with calls to “save the planet” by cutting our most basic modern comforts (like auto travel, home heating/air-conditioning) realize that the politicos and celebs leading the way to our societal suicide have NO intention of giving any of these things up for themselves?
UPDATE 5/11/23: There was a time when America or Israel were always the final refuges? But after America and Israel, where?
UPDATE 5/10/23: Remember when De Santis was deemed such a monster sending all those illegals to those blessed sanctuary spots like New York and Martha’s Vineyard? Now Eric Adams takes a page out of Ron’s book and is dumping the wretched refuse in the suburbs and, surprise, not winning any popularity contests.
Of course, it’s all about helping folks.
UPDATE 5/13/23: Thought up by a couple of far-Leftist intellectual wonks, Cloward-Piven is now Strategy #1 for bankrupting the country via uncontrolled immigration and government dependency.
UPDATE 5/11/23: In case you think there’s any deviation from Arafat’s goal of wiping Israel off the map, dive into the meaning of “the river to the sea,” And closer to home, note Big Tent Democrat Rashida Tlaib’s planned rally last week deploring the “catastrophe” of Israel’s founding.
UPDATE 5/10/23: We are living in a world progressively being overtaken and ruled by outright lies.
Someone (Dr. Jill to be specific) is forging Joe’s signature. Does he even know what he’s signed already, starting from all those Executive Orders from Day One?
Joe and Jill’s real signatures. Note the different, distinctive “B” for each.
A recent one by “Joe”, but note that it’s Jill’s “B.”
UPDATE 5/8/23: When it comes to using his own family both as collaborators in and cover for his own sins, no one surpasses Joe Biden. We’re about to have out hearts wrenched by the same old “father who loves his son [Hunter] too much” schtick that he pulled back in 2015 shamelessly using his son Beau’s death to gin up his Presidential campaign. It doesn’t get any lower…except by hollow characters like Joe Biden whose idea of progress is always “How much lower can I go?” More than anything, it reflects a terrifying flaw in those who still insist he’s just “Good ol’ Joe,” gladly supporting him emotionally and at the polls.
UPDATE 5/9/23: Obama’s legacy is like an invasive, metastasized cancer poisonously entwined with the careers of his protegees and successors, specifically Hillary and Joe.
