  1. Nobody asked my opinion, but…

    Whenever I’m feeling down, I just mosey on down to his twitter feed, and he smacks a big smile on my face.

    Trump is my favorite fucking president of ALL TIME!!

    I LOVE the little bully!!! 😊

    I'm beginning to think Trump is a jackass and mainly interested in funneling all these trillions of bailout dollars to the pockets of his Jew relatives . What say you Steve ?
    , @The Alarmist
    I dunno ... the Trump we were promised never really showed up. Sure, the tweets are fun, but the government we get is that of Millard Fillmore.
  2. This is one of those situations that you might see in an over-the-top, poorly written primetime soap opera, but it would never happen in real life. Just like no decent writer would invent a British Prime Minister named “Boris Johnson” or a First Lady who runs for president. It’s absurd.

    But we are talking super-soap-opera when the gold-digging Chinese Dragon Lady with CCP links (Wendy Deng) marries the worldwide media uber-tycoon (Rupert Murdoch) and no sooner has him on the cover of GQ in a slimming black turtleneck (making him look even more like a turtle) then she starts a steamy affair with the former British PM and Knight of the Roman Catholic Church (Tony Blair) until the tycoon finds out about it by quizzing the downstairs staff - who as everyone knows always have the hot gossip.

    Instead of constantly needling Trump on his many missteps, Gavin had decided to keep his mouth shut. He doesn't want to get Trump riled up or angry over some petty bullshit. Maybe Newsom's doing this for personal political gain, or that it's in the best interest of Californians, or that it's in the best interest of America.

    The US used to be plagued by locust swarms, but we managed to eradicate them utterly. Here's a wiki page on them:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rocky_Mountain_locust

    If anyone remembers the Laura Ingalls Wilder book, On The Banks of Plum Creek, the Ingalls family had their crop destroyed by locusts. The Rocky Mountain locust plagued US farmers all the way up through most of the 1800s. A bounty was offered on them, and it is thought that farmers plowing up the locusts' traditional breeding grounds successfully destroyed all the existing egg cases. Thus the Rocky Mountain Locust became extinct. The locust was totally eradicated without the need for pesticides.

    If people would get their act together in other countries, they could find the breeding ground and plow over it and destroy the egg cases.

    The recent video interview with the journalist Peter Hitchens featured Hitchens pointedly calling the PM “Alexander Johnson.” I suspect that Hitchens considers the “Boris” as much an affectation as Johnson’s others: the “dragged through a hedge backwards” hair, the drumbeat of stories from his lamestream media claque about the supposed wackiness. The pretty widespread suspicion that his illness may be more confected to elicit sympathy than real exists because he looks, quacks and waddles like an A-list phoney.

    Reg Caesar said "For that matter, Edith Wilson served as President without running at all."

    True, Reg.

    Her presidential decisions were based on whether someone had hurt her feelings, so thank God that today's female politicians are no longer guided by such stereotypes . . .

    "Edith took her role very seriously, even successfully pushing for the removal of Secretary of State Robert Lansing after he conducted a series of Cabinet meetings without the President (or Edith herself) present.[34][35] She also refused to allow the U.S. to accept the credentials of a foreign representative unless he would dismiss an aide who was known to have made demeaning comments about her."

    His great grandfather was apparently a Jewish Muscovite. Maybe that was his name.

    If you look at the list of Russian oligarchs (don't think this includes the ex/deceased oligarchs - pity) you'll see Putin's old judo partner is a Jewish Boris.

    Some great names there - "German Khan" - what a name for a Bond villain, "God Nisanov" - even the Spanish and Portuguese only call their sons "Jesus".

    Also see that as well as Israel, corrupt EU locations like Cyprus and Malta are favoured boltholes, though one guy's gone for St Kitts and Nevis.

    Twenty minutes into this an interesting and well presented other video is quoted (correct term?) arguing that a lot of initial Chinese handling of Xi Jinping Cough was unscientific garbage, and what’s killer is this is a scientist talking about Chinese scientists claiming to have identified the virus, not someone talking about the government’s reaction. I can’t work out the name of the quoted video or I’d link that directly. It’s the bit with a metaphor about finding a unique Yankee baseball hat at Yankee stadium.

    I’ve been thinking about how the pandemic will play out politically and socially long term. And there appear to be two contradictory things happening:

    — Seemingly authoritarian measures have been meekly accepted by the masses, while …

    — Seemingly Bernie/AOL-esque socialist measures have been implemented or seem like they will be more accepted by the masses.

    For instance, lockdowns, movement restrictions, some gun stores closed, businesses shut, public and private assembly prohibited, and death board triage reluctantly have been acceded to.

    While on the other hand we see objective standards for college admissions and so on evaporating, universal basic income light implemented, prisoners released, and free health coverage at least in the case of coronavirus tests and treatment implemented.

    This Axios piece on Generation V (will that supplant the Generation Z moniker?) goes into other areas, like social attitudes and mental health.

    https://www.axios.com/generation-z-coronavirus-9a1e4f14-9fde-4627-9465-cca29d4b7848.html

    It’s scary: Will Generation V be a souped up Millennial generation, even more screwed up? What happens when there are no more per-Millenial parents’ houses for kids to live in while they suffer from anxiety, figure out their no-human-contact gender identity, and remain unemployed?

    Oh, there will be hell to pay. As well as Hillary's Hell.To.Pay. The two are different. Nearly every small business owner is broke and out of business. Meanwhile Nancy Pelosi is cackling that small businesses already had enough money and don't need more. Diane Feinstein wants money for Iran and the Ayatollahs but no money for Small Businesses.

    There are host of people who were middle class now looking at homelessness. And Democrats are offering ... more trannys in bathrooms, free College for Dindus, and letting out violent felons from jail and prison.

    They are not even responding to the crisis, meanwhile every small business owner, and their employees, is going to start blaming the governors who shut them down. Cuomo and Northam plan to keep NY and VA closed down for a year. Pretty much every bodega in NYC is now broke, so who are the vibrant youths now going to rob? The Upper East Side, and the Village, and Wall Street of course. Snake Plissken would get the hell out of NYC.

    Right now the battle is brewing between "make China pay" with Republicans lining up and probably soon Trump, and Dems backing China and telling you its racist to call it the Wuhan Virus. "Racist" stops meaning things to a dead broke former small business owner who is standing in a food bank line and living in his soon to be repossessed truck.

    Now what do Dems offer this guy? A way back to the middle class? Keeping his truck? Keeping his home? Restarting his business? Nope they're cackling like Nancy at a billionaire wine tasting fundraiser, about more lockdowns.

    IF and its a big IF, Trump and Republicans seize the "make China pay" movement and ally themselves with the military industrial complex to re-militarize the economy ala WWII mobilization to suck up the unemployment and restore the small business owners its a New Deal. That would of course require brains so they won't push it but it will be pushed by someone. It has not escaped hedge funds that massive and illiquid investments in Apple, Disney, etc. are useless when the nation is filled with breadlines and people on the dole are not buying $1,000 Iphones, going to Disneyland, buying trucks, or paying for streaming services.

    Newsom loves the camera and like all Dems, making little ordinary people as miserable as possible, in every way, but he's got to be feeling the heat from Disney and Apple. Tax receipts are going to crater and his state will be flat dead broke -- he will NEED money from Trump to survive. Also, he knows he is not going anywhere in the Democratic Party. He's a White male, that's not acceptable any longer. Kamala Harris is almost certain to be the nominee if its not Hillary! as Biden is certain to be forced out for health reasons.

    Either Harris or Hillary! is a slam dunk to be the next President. If the FBI does not just remove Trump for being Republican, White, male and icky, the CIA or DOJ just might. Certainly vote by mail guarantees Hillary or Kamala as President.

    A Dem as President will go all China! for both being purchased by them and also because Trump and Republicans will be for Make China Pay. Alright but what then, its one thing to humiliate "proles" with trucks and jobs and cheap streaming services. Its another to suddenly make them poor, forever, and humiliate them. Fun times -- there are rent riots in Wuhan and small businesses in China are ruined. Xi faces some considerable danger as he lost the mandate of heaven.

    Gavin may have had some idea of running for President this cycle. But once he decided that wasn't going to happen, he changed his tune. A competent governor of any party should never piss off the President if he can help it. The President controls too many resources your state may need someday.

It has not escaped hedge funds that massive and illiquid investments in Apple, Disney, etc. are useless when the nation is filled with breadlines and people on the dole are not buying $1,000 Iphones, going to Disneyland, buying trucks, or paying for streaming services.

    Newsom loves the camera and like all Dems, making little ordinary people as miserable as possible, in every way, but he’s got to be feeling the heat from Disney and Apple. Tax receipts are going to crater and his state will be flat dead broke — he will NEED money from Trump to survive. Also, he knows he is not going anywhere in the Democratic Party. He’s a White male, that’s not acceptable any longer. Kamala Harris is almost certain to be the nominee if its not Hillary! as Biden is certain to be forced out for health reasons.

    Either Harris or Hillary! is a slam dunk to be the next President. If the FBI does not just remove Trump for being Republican, White, male and icky, the CIA or DOJ just might. Certainly vote by mail guarantees Hillary or Kamala as President.

    A Dem as President will go all China! for both being purchased by them and also because Trump and Republicans will be for Make China Pay. Alright but what then, its one thing to humiliate “proles” with trucks and jobs and cheap streaming services. Its another to suddenly make them poor, forever, and humiliate them. Fun times — there are rent riots in Wuhan and small businesses in China are ruined. Xi faces some considerable danger as he lost the mandate of heaven.

Watching Goveneror Newsom's Covid-19 press conferences leaves one with the thought that here's a guy, like Trump, that can if nothing else, play the part.

    A bonus is that Newsom also possesses a "staccato" speaking cadence, alikeness that of Christopher Walken, lends an air of "savoir vivre" authority to his words. Another is that he "looks" straight out of casting for Hispanic nobility, may be able to draw out Hispanics like Obama drew African Americans?

    He's also has deep pocketed/state backers: "San Francisco society’s “first families” — whose names grace museum galleries, charity ball invitations and hospital wards — settled on Newsom, 50, as their favored candidate two decades ago, said Willie Brown, former state Assembly speaker and former mayor of the city."

    MEGABRAIN Eric Weinstein spends an hour saying that Jeffrey Epstein might be an intelligence asset.

    Mind-blowing, yes. Of course, this theory is widely available on the internet and seems rather self evident. He tells an interesting story of visiting Epstein's Manhattan townhouse which is admittedly pretty bizarre. Epstein's massive dining room table was apparently covered with a black American flag. Epstein served his guests dinner on a black version of the American flag. How many elite scientists, politicians and financiers ate at that table? Kind of sick.

    Well spoken and argued position. Weinstein is extremely intelligent and seems like a decent and honest person.

    Weinstein is not particularly interesting on espionage, but he has quality insights on physics and scientific research. Weinstein believes high end scientific researchers should be paid like hedge fund managers so that they are not exploited by foreign intelligence services or other nefarious types.

    He calls for a new Church Committee to investigate the intelligence services. Something that I also support, but hardly anything remotely groundbreaking.

    Instead of constantly needling Trump on his many missteps, Gavin had decided to keep his mouth shut. He doesn't want to get Trump riled up or angry over some petty bullshit. Maybe Newsom's doing this for personal political gain, or that it's in the best interest of Californians, or that it's in the best interest of America.

    This is the Zeroeth Deadly Sin in the eyes of the Democrats, so they're going to shun him.

    he doesn’t want to get Trump riled up or angry over some petty bullshit.

    He tried to curry favor with the Dem. base by taking shots at Trump. But true to his counterpuncher nature, Trump cut funding and threatened to claw back federal money wasted on California’s idiot high-speed rail boondoggle. Etc.

    Gavin may have had some idea of running for President this cycle. But once he decided that wasn’t going to happen, he changed his tune. A competent governor of any party should never piss off the President if he can help it. The President controls too many resources your state may need someday.

Meanwhile Nancy Pelosi is cackling that small businesses already had enough money and don't need more. Diane Feinstein wants money for Iran and the Ayatollahs but no money for Small Businesses.

    There are host of people who were middle class now looking at homelessness. And Democrats are offering ... more trannys in bathrooms, free College for Dindus, and letting out violent felons from jail and prison.

    They are not even responding to the crisis, meanwhile every small business owner, and their employees, is going to start blaming the governors who shut them down. Cuomo and Northam plan to keep NY and VA closed down for a year. Pretty much every bodega in NYC is now broke, so who are the vibrant youths now going to rob? The Upper East Side, and the Village, and Wall Street of course. Snake Plissken would get the hell out of NYC.

"Racist" stops meaning things to a dead broke former small business owner who is standing in a food bank line and living in his soon to be repossessed truck.

    Eva Peron.

    For that matter, Edith Wilson served as President without running at all.

    The recent video interview with the journalist Peter Hitchens featured Hitchens pointedly calling the PM “Alexander Johnson.” I suspect that Hitchens considers the “Boris” as much an affectation as Johnson’s others: the “dragged through a hedge backwards” hair, the drumbeat of stories from his lamestream media claque about the supposed wackiness. The pretty widespread suspicion that his illness may be more confected to elicit sympathy than real exists because he looks, quacks and waddles like an A-list phoney.

    https://reaction.life/jeremy-vine-my-boris-story/

    "Suddenly ― BOOM. A rush of wind from an opened door, a golden mop, a heave of body and dinner jacket onto the chair next to mine, and the breathless question, at 9.28pm:

    “JEREMY. Where exactly AM I?”

    I actually had that stress feeling ― a kind of sunburn, creeping across my arms and back. So he was late and he had not prepared a speech. And he was due onstage in ninety seconds.

    I said, “It is the Securitisation Awards, Boris.”

    He said, “Right-o. And who is speaking?”

    “You are.”

    “Good God,” he cried. “When?”

    I looked at my watch. “Um ― pretty much now.”

    Eyes widened around me. I speak at quite a few dinners and always feel most comfortable if I do some research a couple of weeks before ― what’s the occasion (that helps) ― who is attending, etc ― then write the speech longhand in advance. It is not that I am the school swat. It is just that underpreparedness, that dream where you are sitting final exams in a subject you didn’t know you were supposed to revise, scares the pants off me. Later we will talk about public speaking and what I’ve learnt about it. But right now, this was an emergency.

    I noticed we now had the attention of the whole table.

    Boris said: “Okay, first up. What IS securitisation?”

    Nervous laughter....

    Boris asked for a sheet of paper. Someone produced a piece of A4, the reverse side of our menu for the night. He laid it on his thigh, below the tablecloth.

    “Anyone got a pen?” he said. “Quick!”

    A biro slid across the table. Very quickly, taking it, the future Mayor of London and Foreign Secretary began to write what looked like a plan for a speech. It was now past nine-thirty. One of the organisers was staring at us imploringly from the other side of the room, as if thinking: “How much longer can we give him?” I felt that pricking of the skin again ― if I could sense the stress on his behalf, what on earth was Boris feeling? This was going to be a catastrophe. He was going onstage in a minute or two with barely-legible notes written on the back of a menu and no idea even of which event he was attending. An after-dinner speaker normally talks for twenty to thirty minutes. How much material did Boris have? Looking at the scrap of paper I could make out very little of what his scrawl said. There seemed to be about ten words. There was one at the very top that I could make out:

    SHEEP

    and then, a few inches below that, another in capitals:

    SHARK

    but I could not read the rest of the scrawl. Boris harrumphed and groaned, as if straining at an idea. Then his arm was tugged and I heard the announcement: “Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome MP and journalist, Boris Johnson, to the stage.”

    Applause.

    I pressed my palms into my trouser legs, ready for the catastrophe. And then I noticed ― he had accidentally left his page of notes on the table. Could I run up with them? It would be too obvious. He was already at the podium.

    “Ladies and gentlemen ― errrrrrrrr,” he began.

    This could be even worse than I imagined. They might have to cut out of it early and go straight to the awards. I had a five-minute speech myself, followed by the eighteen securitisation awards. The script was in my hand. I would need to be ready.

    Boris had the look of a man who had been dragged out of a well by his ankles. His blond hair seemed to spring vertically from his head as he embarked on some opening remarks, where the occasional word, not always the obvious one, was shouted at double-volume.

    “ ― errrrr, Welcome to THE International. Errrrr ― ”

    The catastrophe had happened. He did not know, could not remember, what event he was at. This is one of the biggest fears any speaker has, forgetting where they are.

    Johnson then did a crazy thing. To find out where he was, he very obviously turned around and looked at the large logo projected at the back of the stage.

    “ ― to the International SECURITISATION Awards! YES!” he cried triumphantly, and to my amazement it brought the house down. There was a huge cheer. Everyone realised this was not going to be a normal speech. The chaos had descended on us, we were in it, and we were going to enjoy it."
     
    , @Rob (London)
    Johnson's friends and family call him "Alex".

    "Boris" is purely a stage name, part of his celebrity/TV show host act. Getting a large part of the population to call you by your first name is quite a rare feat - if he were generally known as "PM Alex Johnson" I don't think he would be indulged nearly as much as he is for his multiple blunders and opportunistic style. (Hillary Clinton managed this trick as well of course, but I think it worked against her rather than for her.)

    So Hitchens's obsessiveness on this point is well founded - although he did the same with Blair, almost always referring to him as "Anthony Blair" despite no one in his private or public life calling him that. Perhaps he did it with Blair in order to affect a paternalistic, scolding tone.

    Just realized that Guilfoyle is one year older than Melania. So, the President's trophy wife is younger than his son's prized girlfriend. Goodness, gracious, and egad.

    How messed up is that? To have one upped his dad, Jr. should've tried to make a play for Kendal or Kylie Jenner. Or perhaps this is merely a transition GF until a newer younger model is ready to hit the market for his consumption.

    The recent video interview with the journalist Peter Hitchens featured Hitchens pointedly calling the PM “Alexander Johnson.” I suspect that Hitchens considers the “Boris” as much an affectation as Johnson’s others: the “dragged through a hedge backwards” hair, the drumbeat of stories from his lamestream media claque about the supposed wackiness. The pretty widespread suspicion that his illness may be more confected to elicit sympathy than real exists because he looks, quacks and waddles like an A-list phoney.

    Johnson’s friends and family call him “Alex”.

    “Boris” is purely a stage name, part of his celebrity/TV show host act. Getting a large part of the population to call you by your first name is quite a rare feat – if he were generally known as “PM Alex Johnson” I don’t think he would be indulged nearly as much as he is for his multiple blunders and opportunistic style. (Hillary Clinton managed this trick as well of course, but I think it worked against her rather than for her.)

    So Hitchens’s obsessiveness on this point is well founded – although he did the same with Blair, almost always referring to him as “Anthony Blair” despite no one in his private or public life calling him that. Perhaps he did it with Blair in order to affect a paternalistic, scolding tone.

    Subtracting the Irish father (assumed to have n0 Subsaharan or Amerindian), that leaves an implied 16.8% Subsaharan and 12.2% Amerindian for her Puerto Rican mother.
     
    The Unclassified portion (3.5%) of Kimberly Guilfoyle's ancestry is, we can reasonably guess, more Amerind than anything. (Likely implying her mother was roughly 65% European, 35% Black and Amerind, the latter two in roughly equal parts).

    Rather than blindly charging thousands of people an hour+ of their time, how about you take a minute to give everyone a few bullet points as to why they should invest an hour in the video?

    MEGABRAIN Eric Weinstein spends an hour saying that Jeffrey Epstein might be an intelligence asset.

    Mind-blowing, yes. Of course, this theory is widely available on the internet and seems rather self evident. He tells an interesting story of visiting Epstein’s Manhattan townhouse which is admittedly pretty bizarre. Epstein’s massive dining room table was apparently covered with a black American flag. Epstein served his guests dinner on a black version of the American flag. How many elite scientists, politicians and financiers ate at that table? Kind of sick.

    Well spoken and argued position. Weinstein is extremely intelligent and seems like a decent and honest person.

    Weinstein is not particularly interesting on espionage, but he has quality insights on physics and scientific research. Weinstein believes high end scientific researchers should be paid like hedge fund managers so that they are not exploited by foreign intelligence services or other nefarious types.

    He calls for a new Church Committee to investigate the intelligence services. Something that I also support, but hardly anything remotely groundbreaking.

    It was a joke...it was clumsy, I admit. I should have put quotes around the 'really hate you people...' I live on the East Coast, and the Democrats really want Republican voters and their progeny to die - they are trying everything to destroy small businesses here, (otherwise known as Trump voters) so they can usher in their utopian, totalitarian state. They are threatening to not open the state to business until June 20. Meanwhile, a 345 million dollar pay increase is about to pass to state workers! This is a totally Democrat controlled state that has a 100 billion dollar pension liability, before last year!

    One of the governors actually said that viruses don't care about you or your kids; and, that it will hit you hard! The issues we have in our state with this virus is that the majority of people who are not frail seniors living in assisted living/nursing homes, are obese black and Latino people, many undocumented, who are dying. Many, who on top of being massively overweight, also have diabetes, asthma, heart disease...and, it makes it appear that not enough white people are dying to make it seem a bit fishy by POC, soon. Race hustlers are what every single one of our elected Democrats are. And, they are fuming that whites in the rural and suburban areas are not dying enough. It is truly creepy.

    There is article after article framing every issue of minority peoples' lives in our state as the fault of privileged (they don't say that but it's between the lines) white people who live further out in the suburbs/exurbs. All our cities and larger urban-like towns, are filled with dysfunction and violence.

    The governors know this is no one's fault, but they are still trying to shame white people. For instance, a bid deal was made that a largely white town, had allowed teens to still go to a skate park 3 weeks ago! - governor ordered a dump truck to pour a truckload of sand on it. Teens are losing their minds out here, and I predict those HS grads and college kids might just vote for Trump out of shear anger at the Democrats.

    The entire Northeast has turned into a hugely, divisive area, more than it was before. A person got shot and killed because he was not wearing a mask! People really, really hate Trump voters, here, or perceived Trump supporters.

    There is not a single positive or even neutral article in our 2 major newspapers about Covid - it's all outrage at Trump and intense fear mongering....it is constant screeching against white people. And, they are letting prisoners out (ACLU has sued to state to let prisoners out!),so the tension is like nothing I have ever seen.

    How many Republicans went into hiding because of the Palmer Raiders, who targeted mainly leftists? Maybe a few ultra-isolationists. Would large numbers of Wisconsin Germans hide from the census takers for this reason?

    Aliens, illegal and perhaps legal as well, would have done the hiding, or non-reporting. Those states would suffer an undercount compared to Democratic states, and cost GOP states House seats and electors.

    Johnson's friends and family call him "Alex".

    "Boris" is purely a stage name, part of his celebrity/TV show host act. Getting a large part of the population to call you by your first name is quite a rare feat - if he were generally known as "PM Alex Johnson" I don't think he would be indulged nearly as much as he is for his multiple blunders and opportunistic style. (Hillary Clinton managed this trick as well of course, but I think it worked against her rather than for her.)

    So Hitchens's obsessiveness on this point is well founded - although he did the same with Blair, almost always referring to him as "Anthony Blair" despite no one in his private or public life calling him that. Perhaps he did it with Blair in order to affect a paternalistic, scolding tone.

    Thanks.

    I believe that the unorthodox, creepy political figure who crops up regularly in the Mick Herron novels may be based on “Alex”.

    I've linked to this before, but it's relevant now. Boris's bumbling zipwire-sticking bike-riding idiot is a very finely honed act.

    "Suddenly ― BOOM. A rush of wind from an opened door, a golden mop, a heave of body and dinner jacket onto the chair next to mine, and the breathless question, at 9.28pm:

    “JEREMY. Where exactly AM I?”

    I actually had that stress feeling ― a kind of sunburn, creeping across my arms and back. So he was late and he had not prepared a speech. And he was due onstage in ninety seconds.

    I said, “It is the Securitisation Awards, Boris.”

    He said, “Right-o. And who is speaking?”

    “You are.”

    “Good God,” he cried. “When?”

    I looked at my watch. “Um ― pretty much now.”

    Eyes widened around me. I speak at quite a few dinners and always feel most comfortable if I do some research a couple of weeks before ― what’s the occasion (that helps) ― who is attending, etc ― then write the speech longhand in advance. It is not that I am the school swat. It is just that underpreparedness, that dream where you are sitting final exams in a subject you didn’t know you were supposed to revise, scares the pants off me. Later we will talk about public speaking and what I’ve learnt about it. But right now, this was an emergency.

    I noticed we now had the attention of the whole table.

    Boris said: “Okay, first up. What IS securitisation?”

    Nervous laughter....

    Boris asked for a sheet of paper. Someone produced a piece of A4, the reverse side of our menu for the night. He laid it on his thigh, below the tablecloth.

    “Anyone got a pen?” he said. “Quick!”

    A biro slid across the table. Very quickly, taking it, the future Mayor of London and Foreign Secretary began to write what looked like a plan for a speech. It was now past nine-thirty. One of the organisers was staring at us imploringly from the other side of the room, as if thinking: “How much longer can we give him?” I felt that pricking of the skin again ― if I could sense the stress on his behalf, what on earth was Boris feeling? This was going to be a catastrophe. He was going onstage in a minute or two with barely-legible notes written on the back of a menu and no idea even of which event he was attending. An after-dinner speaker normally talks for twenty to thirty minutes. How much material did Boris have? Looking at the scrap of paper I could make out very little of what his scrawl said. There seemed to be about ten words. There was one at the very top that I could make out:

    SHEEP

    and then, a few inches below that, another in capitals:

    SHARK

    but I could not read the rest of the scrawl. Boris harrumphed and groaned, as if straining at an idea. Then his arm was tugged and I heard the announcement: “Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome MP and journalist, Boris Johnson, to the stage.”

    Applause.

    I pressed my palms into my trouser legs, ready for the catastrophe. And then I noticed ― he had accidentally left his page of notes on the table. Could I run up with them? It would be too obvious. He was already at the podium.

    “Ladies and gentlemen ― errrrrrrrr,” he began.

    This could be even worse than I imagined. They might have to cut out of it early and go straight to the awards. I had a five-minute speech myself, followed by the eighteen securitisation awards. The script was in my hand. I would need to be ready.

    Boris had the look of a man who had been dragged out of a well by his ankles. His blond hair seemed to spring vertically from his head as he embarked on some opening remarks, where the occasional word, not always the obvious one, was shouted at double-volume.

    “ ― errrrr, Welcome to THE International. Errrrr ― ”

    The catastrophe had happened. He did not know, could not remember, what event he was at. This is one of the biggest fears any speaker has, forgetting where they are.

    Johnson then did a crazy thing. To find out where he was, he very obviously turned around and looked at the large logo projected at the back of the stage.

    “ ― to the International SECURITISATION Awards! YES!” he cried triumphantly, and to my amazement it brought the house down. There was a huge cheer. Everyone realised this was not going to be a normal speech. The chaos had descended on us, we were in it, and we were going to enjoy it."
     

    And his political house elves have prepared him to perfection.

    He’s the nearest thing to a proper (there’s one in Cleveland) tribute act for another Alex with theatrical flair:

    Guilfoyle is a weird looking broad.

    Kimberly Guilfoyle describes her father as ‘Irish’ and mother as ‘Puerto Rican.’ Her 23andMe results were released during a Fox News segment in 2018:

    80.8% European
    8.4% Subsaharan
    6.1% Amerindian
    1.2% West Asian and North African
    3.5% Unstated (Unknown?)

    Subtracting the Irish father (assumed to have n0 Subsaharan or Amerindian), that leaves an implied 16.8% Subsaharan and 12.2% Amerindian for her Puerto Rican mother.

    The Unclassified portion (3.5%) of Kimberly Guilfoyle’s ancestry is, we can reasonably guess, more Amerind than anything. (Likely implying her mother was roughly 65% European, 35% Black and Amerind, the latter two in roughly equal parts).

    [Kimberly Guilfyole’s] phenotype seems to really play-up the Amerindian and not the Black component of comparable size.

    She is said to have whitened herself up via the surgeon’s knife

    I have a question for you Steve and which ever of your commenters might care to answer . My question is who do think will be willing or driven by impulse to defend these Constitutional Rights that we all claim to value so much . You know what I mean ? Who among your commentariat will be willing to defend their rights at their door step at the certain cost of their lives ? Would you ? Will you water the tree of liberty with your blood ? Or just piss out vague sentiments that you can always with the help of some ((lawyer)) back away from , you feel me ? We got lots of words on the right but no action . It's time now to make use of the 2nd Amendment for the purpose it was written for or submit to our natural state of slavery . We are slaves by nature but free men by the will of the gods .

    I've been thinking about how the pandemic will play out politically and socially long term. And there appear to be two contradictory things happening:

    -- Seemingly authoritarian measures have been meekly accepted by the masses, while ...

    -- Seemingly Bernie/AOL-esque socialist measures have been implemented or seem like they will be more accepted by the masses.

    For instance, lockdowns, movement restrictions, some gun stores closed, businesses shut, public and private assembly prohibited, and death board triage reluctantly have been acceded to.

    While on the other hand we see objective standards for college admissions and so on evaporating, universal basic income light implemented, prisoners released, and free health coverage at least in the case of coronavirus tests and treatment implemented.

    This Axios piece on Generation V (will that supplant the Generation Z moniker?) goes into other areas, like social attitudes and mental health.

    https://www.axios.com/generation-z-coronavirus-9a1e4f14-9fde-4627-9465-cca29d4b7848.html

    It's scary: Will Generation V be a souped up Millennial generation, even more screwed up? What happens when there are no more per-Millenial parents' houses for kids to live in while they suffer from anxiety, figure out their no-human-contact gender identity, and remain unemployed?

    Something to think about. Will all those released prisoners ever be released incarcerated? I don’t think so.

    Is Newsom opposed to Guilfoyle or Don Jr. in any direct sphere of influence? Perhaps they get along well.

    Maybe Newsom and Guilfoyle was a marriage of convenience and Trump is laying seeds of loyalty with Newsom in unusual times.

    He tried to curry favor with the Dem. base by taking shots at Trump. But true to his counterpuncher nature, Trump cut funding and threatened to claw back federal money wasted on California's idiot high-speed rail boondoggle. Etc.

    Gavin may have had some idea of running for President this cycle. But once he decided that wasn't going to happen, he changed his tune. A competent governor of any party should never piss off the President if he can help it. The President controls too many resources your state may need someday.

    Gavin’s a wuss and the Don is at least a blowhard. Who do you think is going to win? Gavin figured it out and shut up. End of story.

    BTW, my kids do not care about your viruses.

    It was a joke…it was clumsy, I admit. I should have put quotes around the ‘really hate you people…’ I live on the East Coast, and the Democrats really want Republican voters and their progeny to die – they are trying everything to destroy small businesses here, (otherwise known as Trump voters) so they can usher in their utopian, totalitarian state. They are threatening to not open the state to business until June 20. Meanwhile, a 345 million dollar pay increase is about to pass to state workers! This is a totally Democrat controlled state that has a 100 billion dollar pension liability, before last year!

    One of the governors actually said that viruses don’t care about you or your kids; and, that it will hit you hard! The issues we have in our state with this virus is that the majority of people who are not frail seniors living in assisted living/nursing homes, are obese black and Latino people, many undocumented, who are dying. Many, who on top of being massively overweight, also have diabetes, asthma, heart disease…and, it makes it appear that not enough white people are dying to make it seem a bit fishy by POC, soon. Race hustlers are what every single one of our elected Democrats are. And, they are fuming that whites in the rural and suburban areas are not dying enough. It is truly creepy.

    There is article after article framing every issue of minority peoples’ lives in our state as the fault of privileged (they don’t say that but it’s between the lines) white people who live further out in the suburbs/exurbs. All our cities and larger urban-like towns, are filled with dysfunction and violence.

    The governors know this is no one’s fault, but they are still trying to shame white people. For instance, a bid deal was made that a largely white town, had allowed teens to still go to a skate park 3 weeks ago! – governor ordered a dump truck to pour a truckload of sand on it.

    Uilleam yr Alban, those seeds were planted a couple years back, right after the California wildfires:

    https://flic.kr/p/2iPpuiD

    Newsom's been the son Trump wishes he had ever since. Watching Goveneror Newsom's Covid-19 press conferences leaves one with the thought that here's a guy, like Trump, that can if nothing else, play the part. Unlike Trump, Newsom comes across as nice, likable, and reasonable. A lot of Millennials and generation Z's put high importance in nice. And is this not the epidemie of the nice family:

    https://twitter.com/i/status/1249071231875203072


    A bonus is that Newsom also possesses a "staccato" speaking cadence, alikeness that of Christopher Walken, lends an air of "savoir vivre" authority to his words. Another is that he "looks" straight out of casting for Hispanic nobility, may be able to draw out Hispanics like Obama drew African Americans?

    He's also has deep pocketed/state backers: "San Francisco society’s “first families” — whose names grace museum galleries, charity ball invitations and hospital wards — settled on Newsom, 50, as their favored candidate two decades ago, said Willie Brown, former state Assembly speaker and former mayor of the city."
