Boring Political Post Ahead

I am very sorry, dear Reader, but I feel the need to write about something that “drives me around”. I do not know how my brain works – in the end my best guess is that it is a kind of sponge that takes in anything it reads or heares, then miraculously puts things together and finally oozes out something like a thought, in the form of a bubble that emerges from the sponge-swamp … what an awry image. BTW it mostly works in images.
Anyway, I can not forget (one bubble came up) the video I saw some years ago that showed a “republican” of some rank (I forgot who the prick is, and I have no interest in retrieving the video. In the end anybody has the right to make an arse out of himself, and imho this guy did extensively at this occasion.), a “republican” I say, who makes “fun” of Kamala HARRIS’ name – ending with something like ” … mela, mala, whatever …”. What I clearly remember is the arrogance and the contempt of the speaker.

The “republican” party of the USA is now finally & officially a party based on lies, or better : The Big Lie. I have absolutely no sympathy for Ms CHENEY, who will be removed of some duties and ranks in the “republican” party soon. She is a creature of this “party”, she helped to form this “party”, she profited from this party work, she holds views that make my toes curl, to say the least. Her only “mistake” is that she told her party “friends” that the election is over and the Democrats won, in the end that Mr BIDEN is the lawfully elected President. To tell this truth is enough to be demoted. Other “republicans”, who had the guts to fight against the elephant in the room, can kiss their political career good-bye. ROMNEY, as I read somewhere, was booed from stage at some party gathering.
Let’s make it clear : If you want to hold an office in the “republican” party of the USA you have to lie. You have to kiss the ex-president’s (star fish shaped) ring, and kowtow to the criminal program that is connected with this initial lie – this program in the end aims at getting rid of the USAmerican democracy. All state-level actions, election laws, the “republican” party hammers through, aim at one thing : Make voting / taking part in the election as impossible as achievable. Especially for non-whites.
TRUMPs minions range from the party’s head honchos to those beared, white idiots in military gear, who carry automated weapons, organise themselves in militias, and generally “stand by” – Ready for violent “action”. The actions of the 6th of January show clearly where the train travels to. TRUMP now finally is what he ever wanted to be – what he always blared out : He is the leader of the movement, der Fuehrer der Bewegung. And if you do not hail the fuehrer, you are out.

Now let us assume that on one faithful day in the not so distant future Mr BIDEN makes a wrong step, and bonks his head on the side of a desk. Or suffers from a heart attack, or a stroke – whatever happens in a nearly eighty-year-old body of a man who takes a high pressure job serious. For this case you have a vice-president, you may say : ” … whatever Harris”, as the guy grinned.
I think that some people around the globe may see this as a “golden chance”. I am sure that in the moment it is confirmed that BIDEN is replaced by HARRIS, our friend Vlad (the impaler) pushes a button and sends out his troll army to create instability by propaganda, white, grey and black one. Do not forget that it is now established (!) that Russia was heavily involved in TRUMPs 2016 campagne. Maybe the Chinese have something similar in petto, I do not know.
I am pretty sure that the average “republican’s'” reaction (from “lawmaker” to militia gallowglass) will not be “All hail President HARRIS” but more something along the line “NO niggermother tells me nothing !” I am very sure that the military and the agencies will generally be loyal to the State, but what will happen on local “states'” level I do not know. And of course there will be violence – it’s Amurga after all ! If one black “neighbourhood defence committee” confronts some white “boyscouts” there will be some dead bodies left on the scene, more sooner than later : Yippieahyeah, here we go. (See how some “republicans” style this juvenile murderer from Kenosha as “hero”, look at those people’s mindset.)
I really think that the potential for some far reaching, violent confrontation is there – something we call vulgo “unrest”, or “B├╝rgerkrieg”. The faultlines are established since the 19th century, maybe even longer, and there is nothing left to plaster over them, TRUMP ripped the patch off. The new administration works itself through the debris of those lost four years, surely a promise for the future, but all is terribly fragile. And it takes time – Jessas, it’s not yet six months !
The “good will” is all gone since – when ? Maybe this started under Ronnie, but I am not sure. The “tribalism”, as some call it, will stay, will possibly even become entrenched & un-removable. I really believe that, if BIDEN is replaced by HARRIS, the stress on this already stressed out system (state and society) will become too strong, things will start to break apart, the centrifugal forces will be too strong to be contained. I have no clue what that will mean for the interior situation of the formerly “united” “states”. In foreign politics it could mean that China simply annexes Taiwan (and possibly gets rid of Mr KIM) ; that we Europeans have to welcome Russian tank crews on our Eastern borders, if they are so nice to stop there ; & whatever may happen in the Near East, GOd alone may know. The way Amurga treated “allies” over the last few years taught everybody a good lesson.
It’s all fun and game as long as you Zupfer kill only yerself, yer all free to do that – but, sadly, if things go really bonk, the rest of the world has to suffer too. So let’s hope that Mr BIDEN carries on well through his term, in his full capability, until the next election sees President HARRIS take over. There is no serious alternative.

Finally Lark’s Tongues in Aspic. (Yes, we have had this already in January this year, but I like it.) I hope you enjoy it, it grows on you.

The Deed Is Done

The fix was in from the start, but I thought that a small chance existed for these “republican” senators to find a spine, of course in vain. Small men are small men, and fourtythree from fifty will stay small men or women or whatever, for the rest of their lives, and the history books. This result is the fitting final shitstain on US history marking the end of Trump I. reign.
What everybody already knew, is now proven beyond any doubt : If you are rich, white, and an amoral swine, you get away with anything in Amurga – simply because the jury will be filled with rich, white, and amoral swine. Even when you try to overthrow the effing state.
From now on, no US politican, not even one of the actual administration, shall ever point his, her or its gout-ridden finger against a country like Russia, China, or whatever dictatorship available, and accusate them of something like violation of “values” – because now it is proven beyond any doubt that all “values” the constitution stands for, are neglectable waste. If Amurga stands out in something, it is her level of hypocrisy.
The assessment of Merkel is still correct, Amurga is no more reliable partner. The actual administration may be different, but there is the possibility of a return of the orange creature, or its spawn (say hello to pres ‘Vanka in four years !), the chance to get rid of the fuehrer is given away again. Next time they’ll do better. Promised.

Sunday Music

I slept very badly last night, so I got up in the early morning and switched on the computer. I had looked at different websites before I read a headline mentioning “Jewish space lasers”, used to start wildfires, obviously. Yes – it has something comfortable to realise that some things never change : From poisoned wells in the middle ages, to kids butchered for breakfast pasties, and now “space lasers” : The Jews, hook-nosed deity killers (as Mr Knudsen called them once) that they are, caused it, whatever it is.
The bottomless pit of abysmal dumbness, who peddles this & others stories of this calibre, is a woman elected to represent Georgia, or a part of it. Of course she has the “full support” of the fromer president turned domestic terrorist, of course she is a member of the socalled “republican” party. I have no idea how many votes one must bring together to reach the position this person has reached, if a certain Mr Gerry Mander helped or someone’s money, it is in the end absolutely pointless – all I do know for certain is that who ever voted for this person, is as braindead and dumb as she is. There is absolutely no difference to the murderous mob who stormed the Capitol in this unprofessional attempt of a coup, just three weeks ago.
I do not like Moscow Mitch, he knows his Machiavelli too well for my liking. But there is a slim chance that deep inside he knows that something like a constitution exists. And that one can serve only one master – in this case, the constitution or the homegrown terrorist. He understood that if he wants to keep this party together, he has to get rid of the has-been. And this chance was served on a silver plate when the still-president fired up the mob. So Moscow Mitch did nothing against a second impeachment.
On comes another Kentucky creep, and asks the fifty honourable senators of the socalled “republican” party, whether they deem such a step, an impeachement, consitutional. And fortyfive say “no”. I do not believe that Moscow Mitsch expected this. They side with the vulgarist, with the domestic terrorist, they side with the mob. Because they are cowards who do not have the guts to tell the braindead, who believe in “Jewish space lasers”, to shut up and go home. Out of sheer greed and self-interest they do not risk to get voted out of their cosy jobs – do not call it “office”, these guys have no idea about officium, forget alone res publica. Yes, Pelosi is right, the enemy is within the house, telling stories about “Jewish space lasers”.

What helps, and offers a little bit of consolation, is a bagatelle in F-minor, from BEETHOVENs last sketchbook. Paul BARTON is an English pianist. I hope you like the music.
I really do believe that truth is simple, like this little piece of music. “Jewish space lasers” are complicated. Was fallen will, das falle.

Just Another Worried Idiot on the Web

I can’t help, but I have to watch the news. It is fascinating to see what develops in the US.
I think it is fair to assume that Trmp’s presidency has ended now. I do not believe that someone in his right mind – if someone in his right mind does still serve in this trainwreck – will obey orders from this ex-President. Especially re the nukes, I think the world can trust the American military : These are highly professional people, and I can not imagine that a USAmerican officer will start the nuclear holocaust on the orders of a deranged arsehole that tries to grab the last straw to “save” himself and his corrupt administration.
It is over. It may be wrong to compare, but I have the impression that Trump’s White House becomes more and more a caricature of a certain Berlin bunker.
Anyway. The dam has broken, the damage is done, it is now all about damage control.
I think the most important question is now what will happen after the 20th of January 2021. All we know now is that Trump will not attend the inauguration of his rightly elected successor. What simply rises the question, where will Donnie be – and stay ?
The worst possible situation that could arise, is that Trump somehow dies. If he simply drops dead the hard core mob will go into hyper-drive (is this “warp speed” ?), and I think then the danger of armed, brutal unrest is not only high & real, I think that in this case bloody real fighting will breake loose. They will not believe that he simply croaked, a new martyr is born, myth-making will start before he hits the ground.
I think the divine intervention will not take place, and the old battleaxe will just soldier on. What leaves basically two possibilities : Either he stays in the US, working tirelessly on his “comeback”, on installing the Trump Dynasty, holding “rallies”, and being generally a payne in the arse of this country until he dies peacefully in his bed. This would mean that the Republican Party (or what is left of it) sooner or later would be faced with the possibility of a kind of split. IF this party finds the cojones to draw a line, and to end the flirt with far right, dangerous militants, vulgo Trumpists.
This may be wishful thinking, but at the moment I can not imagine that they carry on as they did for the last years. Trumpists like Cruz, Cotton and Co. may have to find another club, but the party itself has a chance to re-invent itself. Of course it would also mean that there is a far-right, anti-democratic, violent movement installed that is here to stay. What reminds me of what Trump said in 2016, when he always blabbed about “the movement” and himself being “the leader”, exactly like Adolf, der F├╝hrer der Bewegung. Didn’t he say just in one of his last speeches that “the march has just begun” or something ?
The other possibility is that Trump signs some pardons, jumps on an aeroplane and goes to places. Scotland, for some golf – wonder how Boris would react. Or for a lenghty visit of his tower in Moscow – don’t laugh, I think this is a real option. Or he could go to this mystical island he supposedly bought – don’t know nothing about this, it is hear-say.
These two mentioned possibilities require that Trump a) has the brains left to organise these things, and to develop a kind of plan, and b) that he has the means – simply : money – to pull this through, for himself, and his entourage.
I doubt both. I doubt a) because it requires insight into the actual situation. And as I understand it, Trump has no more “insight” into what is “real”. I seriously believe that this guy is out in his own reality that has no more rapport to the “real” world of us small humans. I doubt b) simply because he started to collect money with this semi-fraudulent “re-election fond” shortly after the election. Trump never was a billionaire, rich yes, but not stinking rich. And what he showed through all his life is the inability to handle money. I simply guess he has a deficit problem, to put it mildly.
In the end, all my warble is futile. Nobody knows what will happen tomorrow, within the next ten days, and beyond. Trump may either piss off, and keep yelling from somewhere on this planet to a hopefully dwindling throng of believers ; or he may go fully Adolf and call them for the last stand, call openly for violence, rebellion, and overthrow, happy 20th then.
A way out for all involved, possibly even in the interest of “the Nation”, could be to declare him insane and to commit him to an institution, Guantanamo perhaps. But this is just a pipedream …
Trump is just a symptom, a nasty mushroom – the underlying mycel is still there. It is even strengthened. We saw the irrational break into the world, into a place that should be used for rational decision making, a place that should be safe, where civilised discussion should take place. The irrational is just a stone’s throw away.
When the assembly came together again, some blokes from Pennsylvania made a frivolous claim to overthrow the votes. A lawmaker reproached, they came close to throwing fists, Pelosi threw them out. The lady must feel like presiding over a
kindergarten.
