Trump Lawyers left Within 2 Weeks of his Impeachment Case

31 Jan

Note from Louis: Thanks so much for reading my articles and being such a constant reader. Also, I want to stress that to keep my content ad free, please subscribe, donate, like, (and share the article if you can’t donate, all help is appreciated)to have access to top tier content, and also grow my page to help keep corporations mad all day. 

The reality of this headline is not good, but while America is in such a hostile state of affairs, the news of Donald Trump’s lawyers leaving, is why America is more than ready to give up on Congress and Joe Biden too. 

            The fact is you have a *President* like Joe Biden, and no one really takes him seriously. Joe Biden is “King John,” as Sargon of Akkad said on his podcast of the Lotus Eaters. And “Trump is King Richard off on the crusades.” (“The Podcast of the Lotus Eaters # 56” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9e7vgO0XBio&t=3403s). At this point, who wants to pretend anymore? If Joe Biden can sit as acting Steward of America, then I should be nominated for a Pulitzer Prize. Only BLM was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize. As an aside, if I’m nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize, I’ll say, “Keep your awards, you Swedish fucks. Go eat some Swedish fucking fish, you fucking Muppets.”

            The only important thing from this story is here, “A person familiar with the departures told CNN that Trump wanted the attorneys to argue there was mass election fraud and that the election was stolen from him rather than focus on the legality of convicting a president after he’s left office. Trump was not receptive to the discussions about how they should proceed in that regard.” (“First on Cnn: Trump’s impeachment defense team leaves less than two weeks before trial” Borger, Gloria. Collin, Kaitlan. Zeleny, Jeff. Semler, Ashley. Jan. 31, 2021. CNN. https://www.cnn.com/2021/01/30/politics/butch-bowers-deborah-barbier-trump-impeachment-team/index.html. Found on Jan. 31, 2020).

            So, “Person’s familiar”? Who is that CNN? Can your writers give up the source? Again, all I can see when this happens is, “Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain” from Frank Baum’s “The Wizard of Oz.” Everything at CNN is like repeating the last five years, and they are going to need it if they are going to survive. Because you know why, they don’t exist. So, “Person’s familiar” is nothing more than a lie created by CNN, and this isn’t surprising. CNN are mad that regular people took matters into there own hands in 2016 and voted with there conscience, not with shady corrupt crackpot leaders like Hillary Clinton, and Joe Biden.            But I checked the Federal Register again, and funny enough, there are no executive orders that are going through that match any type of Executive Order he has been zilch. (https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/search?conditions%5Bterm%5D=Joe+Biden+Executive+Orders&order=newest).  It’s right to assume that Joe Biden has no power. No power and no real place in America. He is King John, and nobody takes him seriously. Not even the Federal Register, Congress, nor his administration.

Trump as Russia Insider: Again with the BS!

30 Jan

As I search through the news to cover, the Business Insider article on anything related to Trump, is a reminder that the media has no more boogey man in the white house anymore. It’s why the news will fail. But according to the Business Insider article, “Yuri Shvets is a key source in “American Kompromat,” a new book detailing the decades-long relationship between Trump and Russia by the journalist Craig Unger.” “Russia has been cultivating Donald Trump as an asset for 40 years, says ex KGB.” Cohen, Thomas. https://www.businessinsider.com/russia-cultivating-trump-asset-40-years-says-ex-kgb-spy-2021-1. Business Insider. Jan. 29th, 2021. Found on Jan 30th. 2021). Now, the thing is, is this credible? Is this really even important to talk about in the exodus of the Donald Trump era? What is worse than pretending that people care about Trump and the Russia ordeal. It was proven false that Trump was a Russia asset according to Robert Mueller, was a no show.            

 The media can play this dance but for only so long, but considering that Business Insiders needs readers, and Donald Trump has been a resurgence for them, I expect that the legacy media will burn to the ground in the coming months. Nothing that Biden does is remotely interesting. It’s like seeing a geriatric old man paraded around as a *President* when he’s a puppet and the man will croak over and pass into nothingness. *President* Joe Biden is more less a Metal Gear Solid villain, Major Zero, at the end of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. At this point, if he died, all the institutions would collapse. 

Major Zero at the end of MGS 4. Source: https://www.giantbomb.com/major-zero/3005-476/

In all seriousness, Mueller proved that 45th President Donald J Trump had nothing to do with any election interference or Russian collusion. Again, the Lamestream media is fucking repititve, but considering that they have no other message than Orange Man Bad, it’s not a surprise. 

Take this passage: “Trump’s 1987 book, “The Art of the Deal,” described a visit to Moscow to discuss building “a large luxury hotel across the street from the Kremlin in partnership with the Soviet government.”  (“Russia has been cultivating Donald Trump as an asset for 40 years, says ex KGB.” Cohen, Thomas.https://www.businessinsider.com/russia-cultivating-trump-asset-40-years-says-ex-kgb-spy-2021-1. Business Insider. Jan. 29th, 2021. Found on Jan 30th. 2021). To clarify, they don’t even say where this piece of information appears. Again, they use the “trust me bro” logic and it’s no wonder why they are laughed at. They can’t even lay out in page form where the passage comes from. I don’t expect the Legacy Media to do any research or create any doubt to the claim they make is true. iF they can’t even question why the new memoir of a KGB agent says is true, then why expect the media to do so. As the kids say, “Doubt.”

Art and Culture # 4: How to Master your Craft

29 Jan

If there’s one thing I can impart on people is that there are no rules, and if you have rules, learn to change the rules according to each book. Sometimes you might need an action scene to help boost your technique, or if you write too much action, have characters sitting around where you can talk about things that scare you, and it will make it into the story. What is extraordinary is that you don’t need to like Hemingway to be a genius. Hemingway is what you want when you want to be direct and simple. Sometimes being simple is good, but you have to write in a maximalist way, like Thomas Pynchon. What is possible is that you don’t have to follow one way because if you follow one way, there’s no room for play. 

            The thing is with money is that it’s good. I am not a fan of communism, and that really leads to artistic purity. If you have a communistic martyr, that means he’s a failed hero. I think that actually makes sense when you have a hero who doesn’t actually do a thing, and then thinks he’s the greatest character ever. That’s more akin to F Scott Fitzgerald’s narrator in the Great Gatsby. What you find is that hero’s, in the modern era, have a narrow view of masculinity, and you have to read Homer to find out what masculinity means.

            You can have all the hype and praise you want. It doesn’t mean people will buy your book. There’s comfortability in having the industry praise your work, but when it means your writing suffers, to meet some imaginary audience and industry that pressures you to think like them, then it’s not about creativity. It’s about money. If you like writing genre works then be sure to have fun while you do it. Because if you don’t have fun, then no one is having fun. Serious literature is great and wonderful, but if you don’t find what you like to write about, then you should just be an accountant. 

            Also, writing books, painting, Art, can and should be monetized and you should be paid for your labor. What you have to understand is that when you write, it’s about not shaving, cutting you hair (metaphorically), but it’s learning you must write in order to find out who you really are. Who are you really underneath the words you write? If it’s a ravenous soul, then you can fit well in the thriller, mystery, psychopath aisle. But then, why would anyone want to be stuck in the middle of the road? If you do like anything, you should be aware of all tricks of the trade. 

            Remember that Herman Melville did write a revenge story about a mad captain, Ahab, who was in pursuit of a white whale for taking his leg and his crew. Once you understand Ahab, you can also learn what makes Ishmael follow through with his journey to help Ahab. What the worst advice is living in one zone of thought. 

            If the advice is clear or not, it makes you seem more aware of what you can do as a writer, or painter. No one should ever live in a box when there are so many shapes to live in. Art should not exist for one polar axis either. Learning what people think and learning to understand helps you become fully aware of the rich dad, poor dad idea. 

            Writing, painting, or even creating games, takes your life to understand what you can and can’t do, but even so, you always can improve even when you aren’t aware of it. Being aware is good when you are in traffic. You stop at the red sign and go at green and slow down at yellow. It becomes instinctual. You stop thinking about it and do it. You don’t ask yourself why you’re breathing unless you’re in pain. 

            Sometimes dealing with your past and stupid actions put you in the driver’s seat of creativity. Then you can learn how to make that pain translate to others. But joy and love and human emotions are part of it too. But creativity is not just about technique, but the way you write matters, and how different you are. 

            Publishers only care about looking the same. Not the Artist. It’s why many of them, after they get famous, go to the digital and self-publishing market. If they have a name, they don’t need a publisher. Unless they want a huge fat check. Then that means you can be bought. Just be careful of what you get in return

            Mastering art matters little to publishers. They don’t like your work just the fact that they can change it. So, learning it for yourself can be for double importance. If you show that you are a good editor, you can have the satisfaction but also keep more of the receipts. 

            Mastering Art also requires shutting out the world too. Yes, turn the news off. Sometimes its for the best. Learn to write in silence. Unless your significant other is at home, then put on headphones. Culture requires that you have total abandon when you are creating something. Learn to be yourself.

Hair and Personality: Why Zoology Matters in a Press Secretary

29 Jan

There is a lot of shades of Red. With my curious fascination with red heads, like Dr. Kinsey with his bug collecting habit, or Nabokov with his butterfly obsession, it comes to show that after a while, your habits tend to show who you really desire. According to Turbo Future, “Naming of colours is not a precise linguistic art. Anyone can name a colour whatever they like, and many do. Colours generated by RGB methodology (described below) on a television screen or computer monitor may not exactly match those produced by ink or paint, as anyone who prints directly from a web page and expects the paper image to look identical in tone will know. Different monitors, different printers and different ink compositions will also vary in the results they produce. What’s more the manufacturers or suppliers of inks and paints are free to call their range whatever they choose to. For example the term ‘garnet’ may be used for one shade by one authority, whilst another may use an entirely different name, or they may apply garnet to a subtly different tone (Not perhaps too surprising as garnet gem stones themselves vary considerably in tone).” (https://turbofuture.com/graphic-design-video/Shades-Red-Greensleeves. Found Jan. 29th. 2021)

Follow me, for a bit. 

            If one is ultimately attracted to a certain partner, they show it in there behavior, and even then, some blondes are quite spunky, dignified. Color does matter. But after you see what a person has for hair color, we define that in rather zoological terms. The problem is, does one’s hair really define what you know in your brain and gut? 

            The brain sees what comes out of personality and the world exhibited by the soft colors of pigmentation. Pigmentation is not always important when it comes to personality either. If animals are based on a species, a genus, and there are many typical species that have a hierarchy. Science dictates that there are the Alpha males and the Beta males. Alpha males dominate the breeding process. The Silverback gorilla is one type of ape that has only dark hair with silver in it. While the Orangutan, is orangish tint, and seems much like the intellectual reading a book in the corner with glasses. So, animals do not have to share or show intelligence with the color of the hair they represent. 

            But to humans, hair is part of the process of life. It grows too long, and you cut it. You have a beard, and you shave it off. The Ape family does not share this collective guilt we have when it comes to hair and our social preferences when it comes to hair. I know I talked about in my last article about Jen Psaki that my grandmother said, “All red heads have diseases.”

            I would then argue with myself, as I do find that the hair we see in our society is what can also make people think and make us trust them. It’s like the Spock with the goatee, you know you can’t trust him. So black hair doesn’t mean you are intelligent, but with Jen Psaki, it seems like the red must be eating into her head. It’s like the years of indifference toward men and taking in too many cats proves that the hair she has is eating away all the facets of what makes a person meaningful. 

            I wasn’t joking when I said, “She has yet to unveil a soul.” I stand by those words. It’s too late to take them back now. Apologies are only good when you truly are sorry. I make no apologies for what I say. Just like in the animal kingdom, where your ferocity determines what you are in life. 

            Being meek and awkward only works for bi-sexual fairy men, but the point remains is that the red hair that Jen Psaki has is almost akin to the alien in John Carpenter’s The Thing. We don’t realize who we are until we look at ourselves in the mirror. I see a person who knows she is reading a script. She even borrowed from Kayleigh McEnany, as she reads her responses from a book she used to answer the media. 

            And with McEnany, her blonde hair wasn’t always on my mind when she spoke. She showed intelligence, depth, and fortitude with the humorless media and there communist ferocity of repeating stupid questions. But the point is, hair wasn’t on my mind, but we are talking about two different people. 

            I know with one sentence I quipped, “I am about as interested in Ms. Psaki as I would a Ken Burns documentary.” I must stress the point I didn’t make then that I don’t care for Ken Burnes documentaries. As his best were the Civil War and Vietnam flicks. They were excellent. But otherwise, I have no reason to watch a history of Jazz. And no disrespect to Jazz, or Ken Burnes, is not his fault for being a dry piece of toast. I always wanted him to make something about comics, and play into the fantasy aspect of it, but then, that would be what I want. 

            If Ken Burnes wants to bore people, let him pick the topics. But the point remains: I will watch Ken Burnes over Jen Psaki trying to lie to people who ask her the hard questions. The topic of breeding, and hair color leads to society and there wants. Again, we aren’t animals. I find myself attracted to some strawberry blondes for reasons like if we share the same interests. So, I’m not wholly superficial, but then, superficiality is what the world is surrounded by. To place Jen Psaki in this category of being entirely ugly on looks is an added dig, but I guess it’s what I said. “She has yet to unveil a soul.” 

            She doesn’t seem like a bad person, (even Alita has more of a soul than she does) but if I were looking for a wife, I think I would place her in the sub species category of the wild life category. But again, who wants intelligence when they don’t look good, either? If intelligence mattered, most nerds would have lost their virginity, but most women want big dicks, long extended clips, and huge pecs. But also be nice to their parents too. 

            I think Jen Psaki has a problem with that too. Maybe she’s a replicant. Should we give her a Vought Komp Test to see?

Gamestop and the start of a New Movement!

29 Jan

Apparently, I should have been a banker. The way the stocks and how they make money is tremendous, and seems silly in there eyes what I do. But I guess I care more about internal wealth, and being a good person, to some degree. But the way things have gone is not the same. The Boomers and the Gen-Exer’s are getting old and they want more and more wealth and power, but it seems now, in this day, when anyone can become a millionaire, like in Danny Boyle’s Slumdog Millionaire, based off the book Q & A by Vikas Swarup, a new day has arrived. 

            According to Bloomberg, two days ago, the Gamestop GME stock raised to extraordinary heights, putting fear in the Sharks in Manhattan. With blood in the water, the sharks that Wall Street are, sharpened their teeth. The old establishment cronies. The stupidity of life seems to go out of control every day, but somethings can happen. Good things can happen to good people. But around 6:12 Thursday 28th of January, it is down at 193.60. This was predictable, as the stocks can be manipulated, but with Gamestop, which is a terrible business, shitty customer service, forcing people to buy shitty memberships, and doesn’t deserve the money it earned, now a billionaire club boy? (https://www.google.com/finance/quote/GME:NYSE?sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiwjoGn4L_uAhXMFlkFHZAiBMUQ3ecFMAB6BAgBEBk).

            I did not want to speak about this because I do not know much about stocks. I would be remiss if this was the moment when the millennials and the Zoomers, right and left, should all realize. The system can be fought, children. It can. We should fight it.

            I wanted the story to accrue, and I watched it closely. I want the right people to win. But today, we don’t have to play by the same rules. And that’s why the Internet was made. To help little people get ahead. To sit and be taken seriously with the big boys. But as we ascend, there will be sharks. Watch out for there teeth. They play dirty games. 

            But this is a good sign. We did it, Memesters. I cheer you on, because we all need to find our way. But then big daddy government might be watching guys. Just to ruin our day. Hey, I guess wall street cronies now have another reason to commit suicide now. (Just kidding. Not really. Am I? Maybe I am maybe I’m not. Who knows?). They know there empire can fall away. 

            But they do forget that time is fickle. It’s time for them to let us in. We’re not all that bad. We don’t wear suits and ties, but we do smoke cigars and drink Redbull (yes, SJW’s, I like Starbucks, so leftie girls, you can taste my mocha cookie crumble Frappuccino with whip cream on top. No soy for me, ladies) and we smoke cigarettes to make the pain of existence fade away. But we also play hard too. We just like the ability to use Mantis arms cut away the competition.

            What a wonderful Cyberpunk world we live in.

The Loneliness of the Long-Distance Cartoonist: A Review

28 Jan

Everyone who knows me that I do respect the hell out of manga, usually for its philosophical and moral implications that mangas provide. I do find Alan Moore, Frank Miller, fascinating as comic book creators, but also like Harvey Pekar too. Adrian Tomine is a writer and graphic novelist I have never heard of before, so when I was gifted this for a birthday surprise, I was shocked, and taken off guard because the size of the memoir is the shape of a Moleskin notebook. And I love those too. It’s not what you usually see in a comic book at all, but this peaked my interest too. The paper is graph paper, as it almost lets you see Tomine’s drawing process too. Publishing by Drawn and Quarterly, a client publisher of Farrar, Straus, and Giroux, and released in June 2020, this was a good way to approach my 35th birthday. 

            Like American Splendor, Adrian Tomine focuses on the cringe worthy fest of a writers life that made me happy that I never worked that hard to be accepted in the publishing and entertainment world. Adrian, the main character, is flawed, shy, and awkward that it makes the reading a little painful but it’s better once you continue past the first few chapters of his time at a comic-con. 

            Funny enough, cameo’s from Frank Miller are here, too, and seeing how the comic book literati interact with each other is not what you would expect. The horror of being insulted at a party of your peers is what you wouldn’t put in a book, but it does add to the realism that artists are flawed and they can be POS’s just like your high school bully.

            But if you pushed them, they wouldn’t physically attack you. Probably just make sure you never worked again. Idk I never got that far in the industry to tell you any secrets from that life either. That aside Tomine does provide some humor that is engaging but is minimalist but also not so miniscule that you would be overcrowded with images on a page. 

            Black and white drawing can be simple, but if the material is not engaging, it’s more for arts sake, I guess. The drawings are exquisite, and the pacing is slow, but lead up to a point when it can let you keep going. The chapters take place over a period of a year, but focusing on a single event in that year. 

            It’s like opening up a high school year book to see and reminisce what it was like in the old days. And I don’t really like that many American comic book artists anymore, but Tomine is akin to Pekar, as the everyday is important to him. Almost to a naval gazing like admiration, but still presenting an awkward chubby personality to latch onto. 

            It’s like opening a book from 2008, when being awkward was attractive. But then, maybe this is Tomine’s real life personality, as he was depressed, and the writing showed the true pain of a genius like Pekar. Like Pekar, when you hear him, it’s the same person as described on the page. With Tomine, nothing feels forced, and the dialogue is natural, as any mainstream comic book would not want at all. 

            But it seems that at 42, he has done so much, but even being on interviewed on Terry Gross’s NPR, is not as important, because he sees a dentist from an adjacent window. The conversation with Terry Gross is barely there, as his mind is racing, trying to calm himself down. But this is one example of how fame should not be a central stage in a creative person’s life. I see the loving detail put into the drawing and Adrian Tomine has the chops to draw. Having never heard of him before was even more of a treat approaching my 35th birthday. I consumed it in three hours, and it was well worth the time spent with Adrian Tomine’s “The Loneliness of the Long-Distance Cartoonist.”

            The only complaint is that it might be too hard for some so that they would have to squint, but it’s an interesting and painful, but can be re-read over and over again. I even wanted to doodle around in the graph paper.

            Final Rating: 4/5

Art and Culture # 3: The Rise of Science Fiction and its Mediocre Downfall

28 Jan

Today, everyone will say they love science fiction, but for a time. Science Fiction, a genre that I adore, doesn’t even have to be kept in one genre. The Handmaid’s Tale, by Margarat Atwood, is not in the science fiction section of the book store. It’s in literature. Science Fiction has become so mainstream people forget the years writers spend in loneliness never able to make any money off there work. What is sad is that writing and art doesn’t always lead to success. Many fiction and sci-fi writers are not unknown to this fact. 

            Science Fiction, which Cyberpunk, was born out of, has many ideas linked to identity, the human condition, and technology that might be of harm or use to men. Men like Philip K. Dick had to eat dog food because he couldn’t afford real groceries. 

            It was like learning you didn’t matter at all. Even HP Lovecraft died unknown, but became popular later on in life. But hasn’t this already been talked about? 

            The history of a genre that has long outlived the masters of the Golden Age, has now found itself in the top category in movies, television, and in book stores. But many new readers forget the Asimovs, Heinlein, Bradbury, Herbert, Dick, Strugatsky bros, Miller, Gibson (A Gen-Xer), and even Ballard, as the last twenty years in science fiction publishing has failed to impress me.

            The Road by Cormac McCarthy is probably the peak of high and low art, blending apocalyptic scenes with a story between a father and son who must survive the aftermath, trying to be human. Never Let Me Go by Kazuro Ishiguro relies more on realistic settings with characters than using science fiction landscapes to tell the story of clones that are created for organ harvesting. Ishiguro is not my favorite writer, but it was a good try in a world where literary writers rarely meet the criteria. Also, an honorable mention is Children of Men by PD James. 

            It’s easy to forget the years of Philip K. Dick and his years in poverty, but most artists never make it in there lifetime. All you have to do is continue writing, painting, as long as you can. Maybe write short articles on your blog page, and consistently promote your material. Philip K Dick would have argued that the ability to be self-published would have caused him to write and not produce at break neck speed. But in the 1950’s and 60’s, the Internet and self-publishing were not imaginable, nor “respectable.” The free flow of access was controlled. 

            But in 1992, the Internet was released to the public. And it created such a panic. The Internet was a Science Fiction dream come true. People could connect with one another, and it was all the dreams come true. Even William Gibson’s “Neuromancer” is one of the principle founders of the term Net, as many hackers traveled to gain or steal information. What they never expected is to have a genre so overrun with copycats that the culture only knows the watered down versions of the Golden Age writers best works. The Internet helps everyone access everyone’s work, which doesn’t ultimately lead to being mediocre.

            What hurts is that in all Art and Culture, we are all destined to be forgotten. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. When art turns mediocre, the struggle artists make when such a threshold in a genre is crossed. Suddenly everyone wants to publish a sci-fi story when they wouldn’t pick it up before. What is sad is that once science fiction was embraced and loved, its niche quality dwindled away. The ones who came before felt like small pebbles to the avalanche of movies, games, books, that would come after, but here, the greats do shine on, but fame never came for the likes of Philip K. Dick while he was alive. But did he write everything before he died, and could fame have made him mediocre? 

            What turns men mediocre? When they realize they have nothing left to tell. Is it when the public doesn’t care anymore? If mediocre is a curse word, it would be said in Braille, because one who turns mediocre, doesn’t realize when they are mediocre. When they can’t find it in them to push there craft further.

            But Art must still persist, even if censorship looms over the land of the free and home of the brave. Self-publishing will help lead the future of art and become the movement of true art, and more science fiction will blossom. If we are able to read it, that is.

Chinese Anal Swab: Not My Butthole China!

28 Jan

The last few weeks have been a mortifyingly abhorrent periscope of life for the month of January 2021. What is unreal, after the time spent hearing the good news of Covid vaccines, and tests, there is one thing more reprehensible, coming from the shores of Big Brother China Squad. An Anal Swab. According to Bloomberg, “the method involves the insertion of a saline-soaked cotton swab about two-to-three centimeters into the anus, with the sample then tested for active traces of the virus.” (“China’s Zero-Tolerance Covid Tactics Now Include Anal Swabs” 01/27/21. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2021-01-27/china-s-zero-tolerance-covid-approach-now-includes-anal-swabs. Found 01/28/21)  Even if this was a valid and good option, this is a last option I think nobody should do. 

Gee, the Chinese Communist Party is fucking over its citizens with dictatorial influence, but then they want to put a cotton swab up my ass? That’s called Dictatorship. Pretending it’s doing something to the best of there ability while taking away rights away from its citizens. Half of the shitty one percent who think they can treat people like cattle. You want to rape people and treat them like prostitutes. This is why China must be opposed on all fronts. Try and buy less of there products and have little to do with there trade markets, but with Biden as the *President* of the US, that will never happen. Tell them where to stick this new method, because we are not children and we do not believe the people who created the China virus to want to take care of the rest of the world. And finally, save your medicinal BS China, because the last time you gave us instructions, it was for a gremlins, not for vaccinations.

Hunter Biden is head of the DEA!

27 Jan

In the last week, while it has mostly been a boring start to *President* Biden’s term as 46th president, there’s always a glimmer of humor that can help us through the strange dark time we face. Hunter Biden, whose laptop had pictures of him passed out on a couch smoking crack, is what leads to laughter upon hearing the news. The very idea of a crack head becoming part of the DEA is mostly comedic in nature, and this should make everyone laugh. It would mean two things. Free health care with some free cocaine in our prescriptions. Also, it leads us to believe that’s it not true. Why would the Biden Administration risky decision pretty much leads me to think this is fake. But to imagine crack smoking Hunter in charge of the DEA is superfluous, and funny, at the same time. It would destroy Biden’s term as president, as the worst it can make the Biden administration look faulty, and prominently unhinged. 

            I did laugh so hard at this news, but then again, what is the surprise behind it? The outcome is laughter, and to give it any real meaning, and if it happens, would be deceptive and unbiased joke, and it’s hilarious. Who would have thought that Hunter Biden, head of Barisma in Ukraine, with drug problems, will head the DEA. 

            I guess with Hunter, unhinged, will give way to drug addicts everywhere. But we can’t be mean about Hunter Biden, because of…reasons. If that happens, I should be able to win the lottery. But again, hopefully this proves the humor today is at an all time high. While the country is suffering, it’s good to know a crack addict is going to be head of the DEA. 

            Good times.

Art and Culture # 2: Humor in Comedy and Rappers

27 Jan

It’s hard to pretend that unity exists when humor is dead. Humor has been a very different matter for American GOP and Republicans from 2016-2020. Late night talk show hosts go on air making money, getting paid to laugh, and what do they do against the people who voted in the 2016 election. Make fun of them. Gee, if they were a restaurant they would go out of business, but since ABC, and all the cable news shows are funded by left wing corporations, they will never go out of business. 

            Even with the ratings dropping, they are failing upwards. If they actually said something funny, maybe they would be relevant? But as George Carlin said, “it’s a big club, and you ain’t in it.” (“George Carlin-it’s a big club and you ain’t in it” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i5dBZDSSky0) Wise words from a man who charmed and delighted both the left and the right for years, a wise shaman for the ages, a space alien who knew too much, handing the torch to men like Jimmy Kimmel who can’t even stop thinking about how to embarrass GOP and Republicans. 

            It’s true that humor is based on an individual scale. Only when the scale is turned against the populous, only then it’s funny to the left. But then, if the media tried to do the opposite and find out why people voted for Donald Trump, maybe things wouldn’t be so bad. 

            If more women on the View shut there fucking pie holes, maybe the world would be a better place. The two most powerful performances on SNL were Larry David’s Bernie Sanders and Jim Carrey’s Joe Biden were the highlight of an abysmal five years of humor at SNL. Jim Carrey was essentially “stepped down” from the role as Jim Carrey stated he was only “hired for six weeks.” (https://www.actionnewsjax.com/news/trending/jim-carrey-will-no-longer-play-joe-biden-character-snl/EADG6DA7BFB65GUZQBYTLHSDUY/)

Oh, grandpa Joe can’t take a joke? Score 1 for the death of comedy, and Zero to SNL for sticking to there comedic principles. Get woke, go broke, right? But SNL was basing there jokes off three premises: he’s orange, small hands, and he’s stupid. Wouldn’t they find Trump appealing? Artists are anarchic and Trump is an artist too. He had a television show, so it’s not that hard to find something humorous about him.

It’s hard to talk about this in the sense that while I’m very late to putting it in a essay form, I did release a book called Thy Kingdom Come, which did detail a man who has been cancelled and he has to survive the wave of attacks coming from Anti-Fa. It was a calumniation of 2016-2020, as we also saw the rise of cancel culture. 

            Humor should encompass all ends of the spectrum and not just high art comedy on ABC. To be funny is to give weight to the truth that the media didn’t want to listen to. But humor is subjective, and with ratings tanking for the Lame Stream media is twofold, infecting the music business.

            The second growing music category, Rap and Hip-Hop, is a far cry from the world the founders like KRS-ONE and Rakim built. When 50 Cent’s 1999 single “How to Rob” offended everyone as 50, the main character of the song, was robbing the likes of Big Pun, Rza, Puff Daddy, was the height of a career choice as beef often helps a rappers presence grow. “Ayo, The bottom line is, I’m a crook with a deal, and if my records don’t sell, I’m a rob and steal, you better recognize nigga, I’m straight from the streets, these industry niggas is starting to look like something to eat.” (https://genius.com/50-cent-how-to-rob-lyrics. Found Jan. 25th, 2021). Now, that’s funny and witty, and part of humor is a degree of truth. 50 Cent was hungry, no less, as an artist, and was willing to take anyone on in lyrical combat. 

If you have to kill the king, you have to hit the king. But with rappers having to express extreme discontent against Donald Trump during 2015-2020, and Kanye West and Chance the Rapper breaking from the pack, they were accepted with open arms, right? Wrong. It seems like the rap community thought Kanye’s love of the 45th President of the United States was a joke, or he was crazy.

Ta-Nahisi Coates is a writer, not a rapper, who wrote a bevy of insults in a humorless article for the Atlantic titled “I’m not Black, I’m Kanye” Coates, Ta-Nehisi. May 7th, 2018. (The Atlantic. https://www.theatlantic.com/entertainment/archive/2018/05/im-not-black-im-kanye/559763/. Found Jan 27th, 2021) that the leftist media didn’t scold him for. If he’s a thinker, maybe he should do better. Humor is also part of Rap battles as it is made to confront his opponents with words, not a gun. 

Ta-Nahisi Coates, is a thinker in the vein of Sisyphus rolling the boulder up and down, doesn’t know how to use a pen or a gun, because what he says is merely the most eloquently racist thing a person, like Coates, who is wet behind the ears, can write. “Michael Jackson was begging to be white.” Again, it’s hard not to imagine this talk coming from Coates, as he’s blinded by racism. Also he doesn’t even provide a fact check for Kanye West’s claim of Chicago being “the murder capital of the world, when “Chicago is not the murder capital of America.” I guess all the deaths in Chicago that took place don’t matter, Coates? When it’s black on black crime, that’s irrelevant data, I guess, little man.

The word “collaboration” was used against Kanye West, as if his support for Donald Trump was akin to betrayal. But maybe the worrisome thing is that Kanye meant every word he said from 2016-2020. Maybe he was laughing at his compatriots who didn’t see what Kanye saw. A leader that gave black Americans the chance to vote differently and laughing at people like Coates is mislabeled “racist” against Coates and the establishment. Humor doesn’t also need to happen when one is laughing either. Humor is often divisive in nature, and only dad jokes are acceptable today to left wing Social justice group.

Coates does manage to cobble something together, with a slightly awkward back handed compliment to West: “West has done something more remarkable, more amazing than Jackson, because he is a man of no mystery, overexposed, who holds the world’s attention through simply the consistent, amazing, near-peerless quality of his work.”  

There’s a quality of near sighted delivery in Coates perceptions that differentiate Kanye West and Michael Jackson. They are both great artists, but West provides invigorating humor to his music. Even such lines as “Something that has been missing from Rap all together.

But again, maybe it’s better to speak nicely of our enemies, but then, Coates nor SNL do not care about my opinion, and that’s fine. Just remember that I remembered what led to the death of humor. Besides I have no problem with someone fairly unintelligent and mawkishly ugly; it’s not a competition, just a remembrance of facts. While this may be a little late in remembering, much of what history does is allow us to remember how humor can be subjective to each person who reads it. The thing is, Kanye didn’t care if anyone was listening in 2017, but Coates did, and it remained largely ignored and a boring interpretation of West’s anarchic thought pattern. 

But Coates is a larper who can’t bother to do basic research. But then, if this is humor, why does this miss the mark? Why does it feel so outdated in the wake of 2021? It’s easy to make fun of Kanye West and Donald Trump Supporters when Coates writes for the Atlantic, an irrelevant magazine that no one reads anymore, except to make fun of. 

But then, censorship is on the rise in the left. They have all the power, but if there power is tiny, like there brain cells and peckers can attest, hatred will never make them laugh again. If they go to sleep, great, but again, who wants unity? 

Anti-Fa doesn’t.  

I hope that humor can survive in a corporate world, but if it doesn’t, it was nice knowing the likes of SNL and Ta-Nehisi Coates. You will go great in a museum.

And who do dictators and there acolytes hate? 

Humor.

Finally, if art and humor are going to survive, there needs to be a massive overhaul in American media. If one person can’t be made fun of, then no one should be made fun of. If Twitter did that, they wouldn’t exist. As humor is a dying art form, it provides a heavy heart to all artists. Don’t make fun of the left, as you are punished for your crimes. What a world we live in if no one can make fun of the left, because it proves one point right. They can’t take a joke, anymore. It’s been discussed from many thinkers, but these two ideas expressed are a nucleus of the epoch of 2015 up to 2020. It’s not like I get this is old news, but it’s the years of Donald J Trump is when humor only meant it was part of the corporate establishment. 

Humor is about holding no water for either side. When did the left forget this trait? I guess the left are the artifact they pretend to not be. An old man who covets war and can’t take a joke. If rappers and comedians aren’t allowed to stray from the path, then why should art exist. It just proves that with the cutting off new talent, George Carlin’s point remains valid, “it’s a big club, and you ain’t in it.”
