Paranoia strikes deep, into your life it will creep

Do we finally all get it, now? Just as the Weissmann-Von Grack- Tash Guahar (“Mueller Special Counsel”) DOJ team knew from Day One there was no “Trump-Russian collusion” . . . ( )

. . . and therefore spent their entire two years trying to goad Trump (a pre-dawn televised SWAT raid on a political/criminal nonentity like ROGER STONE?) into some kind of reaction they could characterize as “Obstruction of Justice” . . .

. . . so the whole idea of the “uprisings” of the “Antifa/BLM” anti-Semitic Bolshevik riot/arson/assault agitators (the “street” cadre of the Democrat National Committee) in Portland and elsewhere over the past four months has been to goad Donald Trump into sending in the locked & loaded National Guard, in the hope (expectation?) they could then count on some of their own agents provocateurs to generate some gunfire, so the Democrats could pretend in their national convention this summer that it’s 1970 again, that the man in the White House is their old bete noir Richard Nixon, and thus wind up their August National Convention by dragging out a septuagenarian Stephen Stills and some black hip-hop guy to offer us a kind of “Devo” version of Crosby Stills & Nash’s “For What It’s Worth.”

(“There’s something happening here
What it is ain’t exactly clear
There’s a man with a gun over there
Telling me I got to beware . . .”)

And that is indeed how they wound up their so-called “Virtual Convention” snoozefest, Monday. Really.

The only two problems? 1) The armed “police-state” confrontation they were hoping to set up NEVER HAPPENED. Yet they went with their prepared script, anyway, and . . .

. . . 2) anyone who thinks this is “really cool” has to be between the ages of 65 and 79, like, you know. Joe Biden and the capos of the Clinton Crime Family. They think they can WIN that demographic? Really?

“You’ve noticed a lot of unrest in the country these recent months,” the Democrats say. “Elect us, and we’ll calm it all down.”

When what they really means is “Elect us, and we’ll stop doing it.” So their election strategy — other than massive mail-in ballot fraud, which is indeed a concern but on which I suspect they may be pinning a bit too much hope — is . . . extortion? “Elect us, or we’ll keep burning down your cities and pulling you out of your cars and beating you up”?

As the T-shirt says, “Remain terrified. Question Nothing. Stay Home.” Hey, it might work among the disarmed girlie-men of France, Germany, or Norway. But in America? An America full of pickup trucks and armed patriots?

The Democrats are staging an absolute graduate seminar on How to Lose An Election By Playing To Your Violent, America-Hating, Radical New York & Ivory Tower Base. And they’re just getting warmed up. Watch Joe Biden. Then go watch the end of the Paul Newman film “Blaze.” Not that I’m saying Joe Biden is as lovable a cuss as either Earl Long or Paul Newman, mind you. I’m just saying, “Go watch the end of the movie ‘Blaze.’” Then wait six weeks.

    Can you just tell us how Blaze ends? Or do we need to pay Amazon another $4 to watch this film again?

    I thought the ending of “Blaze” was pretty memorable, actually.

    In real life, former Louisiana Gov. Earl Long (Huey’s surviving brother) ran for Congress in 1960 (same ticket as John F, Kennedy), and won, but died before he could take office. Writer-director Ron Shelton (“Bull Durham”) telescoped things a bit, so the heavy-drinking country populist (charmingly played by Paul Newman) was already ailing on Election Day. But he declined to leave for the hospital, instead insisting on sitting in the front window of his hotel, smiling and waving at his supporters. He won — but he did not survive the night.

    I don’t think Joe Biden is going to be elected president. But I also can’t remember anyone since (possibly) Warren G. Harding winning a national election without setting out to do at least some MODERATELY energetic campaigning. And remember, even BEFORE Clueless Joe’s current, highly visible cognitive decline, this was a fellow with only two ways to deal with pressure situations — either he tries to laugh off something that troubles or challenges him with his familiar “Ah, c’mon, man” — or he loses his very short temper, starts shouting, bragging about his IQ, and challenging people to a wrestling match.

    His handlers want this guy alone on stage with Donald Trump for more than an hour, ad libbing, SEVERAL TIMES? They think he can draw crowds to RALLIES . . . and keep his train of thought amidst all that hubbub? That he can get elected without taking any questions? They believe they can convince us this is the guy we want answering the phone at 3 a.m., as his military aide tells him, “Sir, the Chinese just sank both our aircraft carriers in the South China Sea, and they’re landing on Taiwan”?

    Yes, I understand they believe the press is on board to cover for him. But their manufactured “Covid cover story” is already collapsing. What’s their contingency plan if things should go south in a hurry?

    — V.S.

    I purchased The Ballad of Carl Drega on Amazon. Interesting it took 3 weeks to arrive and the entire top of the envelope was cut off so that part of the book stuck out. Could it possibly be the USPS was checking on those who purchase your works? I guess I’ll be on the terrorist watch list, By the way “Send in the Waco Killers” is my favorite, I purchased it in Las Vegas before the communists took over Nevada. I moved to Arkansas which is somewhat free. I hope you get out from behind enemy lines
