Do read it all (Would've at least linked even w/o the title & tune match.) it's paranoia leading to an amusingly pathetic sci-fi fantasy. Or is it?
The intellectual right contemplates an 'American Caesar'
Jan. 6 was a badly planned rehearsal for the real dealThe indisputable fact is that a leading and long-standing conservative institute in the United States hosts a podcast by someone who served as a senior official in the presidential administration of a man who may run again for the nation's highest office in a few years. And on an episode of that podcast, this former official and his invited guest genially rehearsed arguments about why a future president would be justified in turning himself into a tyrant, and how he could set about accomplishing this task.
Which means that on the starboard side of American politics, the Overton window has now shifted far beyond the boundaries of democratic self-government to a place broadly coterminous with fascism.
Mob rule nothing. Slob rule. By app. Can't wait.The trick, for Yarvin [A/K/A/ "Mencius Moldbug" Editor], is for the would-be American Caesar to exercise emergency powers from day one. How? Caesar should run for president promising to do precisely this, and then announce the national emergency in his inaugural address, encouraging every state government to do the same. Taking advantages of "ambiguities" in the Constitution, he will immediately act to federalize the national guard around the country and welcome backup from sympathetic members of the police (who will wear armbands to signal their support for Caesar).
When federal agencies refuse to go along, Yarvin suggests, Caesar (whom he now begins referring to as "Trump") will use a "Trump app" to communicate directly with his 80 million supporters on their smart phones, using notifications to tell them that "this agency isn't following my instructions," which will prompt them to rally at the proper building, with the crowd "steered around by a joystick by Trump himself," forming a "human barricade around every federal building, supporting Trump's lawful authority." Where maybe 20,000 people stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6, millions responding to the Trump app would be much more effective — a modern-day version of the paramilitary groups that ensured Lincoln's safety during the hard-fought, dangerous 1860 campaign for president that preceded the Civil War (and the president's subsequent suspension of habeas corpus and shuttering of hundreds of newspapers).

Scab Of A Nation, Driven InsaneFor various reasons I intended to share this number today
Check the original: Wypipo be craaa-zy! Good thing what excess energy & spare money I have goes to innocent hobbies, because the idea of rampage has been stewing w/in me since puberty, when many of my differences w/ the world of humanoids began. (Not that I wasn't wise to you pathetic imitations early in my existence.)Because what is trending in our “deeply traumatized country,” writes Chris Ladd at Political Orphans, are crimes of general mayhem in public settings committed by “white psycho killers, gonzo stories of ‘Florida-man’ crime,” and tales of “white ladies gone mad,” like the naked one who wrecked an Outback Steakhouse.
Franklin, Gladstone & Orwell? A trifecta of laziness? And one must admire Stein's new & very expansive interpretation of the First Amendment (Anyone w/ me on wandering over to whichever pad he's in tonight & exercising some free speech directly in his fucking ear? What about Property Rights?) as he whines "we no longer have a Constitution."
Ben Stein is a writer, actor, economist, and lawyer living in Beverly Hills and Malibu. He writes “Ben Stein’s Diary” for every issue of The American Spectator.

First recording by a Jamaican artist for which this reporter paid cash was Israelites.Despite achieving a record deal, it was two years before Dekker saw his first record released. Meanwhile, Dekker spotted the talent of Bob Marley, a fellow welder, and brought the youth to Kong's attention. In 1962 "Judge Not" and "One Cup Of Coffee" became the first recorded efforts of Marley, who retained gratitude, respect and admiration for Dekker for the rest of his life. Eventually in 1963 Kong chose "Honour Your Mother and Father" (written by Dekker and the song that Dekker had sung in his Kong audition two years earlier), which became a Jamaican hit and established Dekker's musical career.
