With all due respect to Don Surber, I believe bogging down in the lying, lawfare details really does delay justice. Justice delayed is justice denied and that's what's been happening for a long, long time. Obama's mentor, Bill Ayers, planted bombs in public places and killed people. To this day Ayers brags, "Guilty as hell and free as a bird." He should have been (at least) tarred and feathered and hauled out of Chicago on a rail. Instead he lives large and imposes evil like Obama on the rest of us.

We know that every one of the Biden's are as guilty as Ayers. So are a lot of other swamp denizens in DC. Why do we continue rehearsing known details of their guilt? Why do we continue deceiving ourselves with useless pabulum about the legal process working out in a court system that is every bit as corrupt as Hunter Biden, Bill Ayers and all the rest of them? Not one court anywhere gave standing to the plain truth of the Great Fraud that took place in Election 2020. We should expect a different result with Hunter Biden's case? Sorry, but at this point such an expectation is ridiculous

Many of the younger members of the DNC have difficulty at times keeping the narrative straight because their lying skills are amateurish. They can only dream of attaining the professional lying status of say, the Clinton's.

The Clintons made it look so easy! No one knows the decades of practice, and dedication that was required.

Bill made it look easy. When Hillary tried her hand at it, each and every time, her schemes backfired faster than the Pentagon lying to the American people, telling us about "Chinese balloons that floated over the USA while Trump was president."

There's this word that gets harder and harder to avoid the more the narrative unfolds. Starts with "tree" and ends with the "son".

I’m reading mel brooks auto biography. If you want to know what comedy was you should read it. Any one who dared to do what his generation did would be drawn and quartered or worse.

What's the book's title?

“Mel Brooks all about me”. What else could it be?

Excellent. I just ordered it. I return the favor by recommending the exceptionally amusing "STET, Damnit! The Misanthrope's Corner, 1991 to 2002, The Complete, Unabridged Collection," by Florence King [1936-2016], "Jacket and book design by Luba Myts"; National Review Books (2003 hardcover).

In addition to the oft-hilarious remarks, the books technicals are excellent as well, so spurge with confidence on a hardcover used (or new) edition.

"Bob Dole's habit of referring to himself in the third person is having such a disconcerting effect on the primaries... the camera pans over Russell, Kansas, following the candidate through his formative years ...

"To his mother: 'Bob Dole's hungry.'

"To his father: 'Can Bob Dole have a quarter?'

"To his teachers: 'Bob Dole didn't do it.'

"To nice girls: 'Would you like to go to the pictures with Bob Dole?'

"To bad girls: 'If you did it with all those other guys, how come you won't do it with Bob Dole?' "

The MSM has been dead to me for a long time. Everything they say is a lie. The federal government is no different. As trustworthy as Satan!

Every time I hear the word Satan now, the song by ACDC Highway to Hell pops up in my head.

About your poll: I'd say he's 8 miles high and falling fast. Great column, too. Hollywood and the progressives (regressives) are joined at the hip.

To boot, they literally don't care if their propaganda flicks lose money.

I take great comfort in the movies on TCM. Movies will not be made like that ever again for all the reasons that we know. As for the MSM, I waste as little time as possible on them. They are a disgrace. They are propaganda productions.

If/when President Trump is reelected in 2024 I will have funds, Lord willing, to become a founding member. But we'll see.

We'll see. The hitch for me is paying in U.S. dollars. I am thinking about it. $50 US was fine. $100 US I am thinking about.

Without using too many of my fixed number of “carbon credits” to comment: I think the Chinese writers who rewrote The Beverly Hillbillies in nonfiction with Crackhead Jethro/Hunter did a great job (for them). Kudos!

And the plan worked perfectly until Schlong drove into the Holland tunnel. When he was halfway across underneath the Hudson, he could hold it no longer. Some of the car back-blasted out of the tunnel sailed over the Palisades in Union City and came down in Philadelphia. Fortunately, the air bags deployed and the vehicles floated safely down to the ground in the Eagles Stadium packing lot, where they were instantly stripped of all portable parts by crackheads (some of whom noticed the foul odor but thought it was just a higher dose of Philadelphia's standard stench, and kept on stripping, not missing a beat).

I pray that a few decent members of Congress and perhaps a favorable court venue and judge can do some good.

The problem is that so many will never hear the true news, and of those that do, half of them will consider it to be a conspiracy theory.

I believe that the country is so divided that it's going to be very hard to change any one's mind, particularly on the other side.

"Audiences are bored by it. They want to be entertained, not indoctrinated."

That may, in fact, be true, but the suits that run the major studios and media companies are not convinced, apparently.

"...imagine that you are...in the throes of a divorce and a midlife catastrophe brought on by the early death of your older brother and that, in your...grief, on a hell-bent drug-and-alcohol binge, you have been...taking up with your brother’s widow and, while in considerable financial debt, hiring prostitutes and zoning out with camgirls and staying awake for days at a time on crack cocaine..."

Because, after all, that's what EVERYONE does who is experiencing tremendous grief...

"This reflects the pampered life of a privileged and perpetually adolescent man — now in his 50s — who has never been held accountable for his many, many crimes. In case you hadn’t noticed, possessing cocaine is a felony."

If I didn't KNOW this was written about Hunter Biden, I would have SWORN it was written about Ben Affleck...

Is Affleck that bad, too?

They just don't make them stupider than Ben Affleck. And brother, they have tried their best.

There is an inevitability about collapse in high places that is fascinating to watch. Like a slow motion train wreck. What is even more interesting is that the ability of the broadcast and print media to control the narrative is long gone.

Even here in NZ I knew about the laptop two years ago.

We have had our issues here too but regardless of the obfuscation of media, bureaucracy and dissembling politicians Jacinda Ardern was exposed as a lying tyrannical hypocrite and is gone, leaving her Labour Party in shambles.

Your great nation is fifty times larger, and these things will take longer to work out.

But work out they will.

I believe that most western democracies are in the same shape, some in advanced stages and others less so. I put Canada, New Zealand and Australia in the same bucket. Ruled by tyrants and weakening our democracies. They are no longer stalwart members of the Anglosphere. As for the U.S., I have more hope your citizens. I hope you can fight back as hard as you can. If anyone can buck this horrible situation that is teetering on fascism, the U.S. can. I have no hope for Canada. We have been hooked on big government for far too long for any real change.

Was it Jefferson who wrote that those who would trade freedom for security would end up with neither?

The Anglosphere at its best are welfare states who look after their citizens. There is a Faustian twist to this in that a welfare state implies a big intrusive state. It’s a bit like the Laffer curve in taxation. Some good, more better, a little bit more and oops! Too much.

That’s where we are today.

I personally believe that there will be a correction because of the fundamental decency of our citizens and common law based societies.

I could be wrong. Sigh.

Expand full comment

Great description of the current state of the Anglosphere.

A correction can't come soon enough, but I'll think we'll be waiting quite a long time. As we saw during the pandemic, people willingly traded their freedoms for what they saw as protection and security. The culture of safety rules.

50 million people in the U.S. are literally addicted to their cell phones. What can anyone do with such pathetic human beings?

What is wonderful about the parliamentary system is you can potentially jettison psychopaths like Ardern sooner than we can dump our “leaders.” In addition usually the smarter members of parliament become the party leaders whereas here we vote for brainless Quahogs. Clearly our advantage is the 2A. I’m not optimistic, but alas there’s nowhere to go.

The drawback is getting people like Liz Truss, the 44-day wonder (ex-UK PM).

Congratulations on being spared from any more Jacina Ardern. They must have had something really good on her to be able to get her to resign. I'm looking forward to her sharing a jail cell with Fauci, who when he hears his sentence from the judge, will instantly identify as a woman and thus be sent to the International Martha Stewart Memorial Penitentiary on St. Helena Island.
