Needed Our Own “Jack”

May 17, 2021

In “Jack and the Beanstalk,” young Jack outwits a big bad giant.

Yesterday, David Zaslav, a golfing buddy with CNN’s Jeff Zucker, and head of a new giant of a conglomerate composed of Discovery and Warner Media, according to the New York Times,  praised Jeff Zucker and CNN,  and “said that it could be expanded with Discovery’s existing international news properties to make it ‘the world leader in news.’”

“Everyone wakes up and wants to know, what’s going on in their world” Mr. Zaslav said. “And nobody does that better than CNN. I’ve been glued to CNN for the last several months.”

What an ass!

Second in Progressive bias only to radically-Left MSNBC, CNN enshrines all that is politically correct in cable news.

I know. At 5:00 AM I awaken in time to catch the morning list of biased journalism at CNN. After fifteen minutes I know what Leftist “journalists” will spout throughout the day until the last reports at 11:00 PM.

In October 2019 I was so tired of all this pastel-colored deep Doo-Doo that I called for a “counter attack” by engaging in a proxy battle for control of CNN.

I had in mind something like what Tom Ellis and Jesse Helms attempted when they engaged in a fight for control of CBS. Actually that was just one of three things that sprung from Tom Ellis’ office in Raleigh, NC:

First, he and Sen. Helms attempted to purchase control of the Columbia Broadcasting System (CBS), home of Walter Cronkite. In that attempt, Ellis and Helms sent much needed shivers through the arrogant media monopoly of the day.

Second, the support of the Congressional Club gave Ronald Reagan a much needed “win” in the North Carolina Presidential primary of 1980 that kept the Gipper’s campaign alive and on to victory in 1980.

And third, they plucked Dr. John East, an unknown political scientist at East Carolina State, to run for the U.S. Senate. Pollster Arthur Finkelstein took one look at East, a paraplegic confined to a wheelchair, and designed a winning strategy: never let East be seen in public.

We need to do something like that again and send much needed shivers up the spine of an arrogant David Zaslav.

Where’s Jack when we need him?

Honor our Flag!

May 16, 2021

I love my country, but there are better ways to demonstrate that love than by celebrating the National Anthem as badly as Brandon “TAZ” Niederauer who performed the National Anthem at the 2021 Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Racecourse on May 15, 2021.

How should it be honored?

The “Wild Card” Is an Angry Donald Trump

May 16, 2021

Like President George H. W. Bush who sought and lost reelection to the Office of President, President Donald J. Trump lost his shot at reelection. And like all former Presidents, Donald Trump’s high disapproval rating indicates that his appeal is waning.

Trump’s very high disapproval by Americans is reminiscent of the 2018 by-elections that signaled that Trump personally was in deep doo-doo.

Loss of the House of Representatives, two Impeachment votes, failed intervention in two Georgia races for the U.S. Senate that ceded control of the Senate by Democrats, and then an attempt to void the 2020 election results by inciting his followers to invade the U.S. Capitol on the day Electoral College results were affirmed, was a dagger in the heart of the Republican Party.

Despite all that the American voter has not bought into radical policies of  Progressive-Left Democrats of the Biden Administration and it’s a safe bet that the GOP will retake control of the U.S. House of Representatives in 2022.

The “wild card” in our game of politics is an angry Donald Trump who believes the 2020 election was stolen and what he is willing to do to be reelected in 2024.

“REPAIR” the GOP

May 15, 2021

The list of “signatories” of REPAIR, a “reform” movement within the GOP, is too long to clutter this post on my personal “blog,” but you can get the “drift” from a few of the names who “believe that these United States must work in conjunction with friends and allies to advance worthy interests abroad and to promote freedom by example and with the judicious application of power.”

Anthony Scaramucci        Bill Weld      Mona Charen          Charlie Dent

Christine Todd Whitman John Negroponte  Mark Sanford          Max Boot

Tom Ridge   Michael Steele       Mickey Edwards    Mike Murphy

These well-known “East Coast” Republicans are Liberal/Internationalists who are comfortable with the policies of Presidents G.W.H and “W” Bush.

A common belief in advancing “worthy interests abroad” was rejected by former President Trump and that seems to be the ground on which these reformers choose to stand.

Their unanimous rejection of Trump’s “nationalism” indicates that a Trump-led GOP is beyond “REPAIR” and between now and 2024 these two camps within the GOP will decide whether the GOP survives or is broken up into Internationalist and Nationalist wings.

Personally, I’m hoping a National Conservative Party will be formed in order to give voice to those of us who oppose this Internationalist element in the GOP.
