Risk for the Nation is Increasing.

The Octogenarians

The Merchant of Malice (POTUS) is claiming voter fraud,trying to shape(unconstitutionally) the Justice Department,attacking NATO allies while preparing to meet with Putin with an unknown agenda. While behaving in this unsettling manner he is also failing to fill the role of chief mourner for the bereaved in mass murder(gun violence ) and natural disaster.His speechwriters cannot pencil in the empathy which he appears to lack.To the degree that this behavior is under conscious control it can be expected that it will increase in international adventurousness and encouragement of domestic violence as it becomes clearer to him that he cannot control the outcome of the Mueller investigation.The DSM 3 phrase”little room to maneuver except into psychosis”keeps shadowing his Presidency as it appears that his maneuvering space is sedition,anarchy and foment of riot. The Democratic party should use the word and concept of indictment sparingly or not at all until the Mueller…

The Spreading Malice

The Octogenarians

The pipe bomb distributions to past and present leaders of the Democratic Party has been traced to a marginal human named Cesar a rabid supporter of MOM (aka POTUS) Almost before the hypocritical disavowal of hate and violence could clear MOM’s lips(and speechwriters) another hater armed with four weapons including an AR-15, struck in Pittsburgh at a Jewish synagogue during a religious ceremony..The rise in hate crimes is heartbreaking and clearly related to the selection of scapegoats,e.g muslims,blacks,hispanics etc. for isolation and persecution and the emergence of a theme of making America White ,Christian and Misogynous again.These sentiments have always been available and the calling of them, be it by dog whistle or overt command, is bringing us closer to the helter skelter madness that MOM requires to declare martial law and coupled with recession and foreign war can lead to MOM’s ascension to an Imperial Presidency..Hail Caesar,Heil Hitler and…

Originalism in trouble as fundamental in religion and intolerable in social transaction.

The Octogenarians

The politicization of a Supreme Court is not a new phenomenon.The “capture” of a chief judiciary has been a goal of political parties since they were invented..Although unrecognized officially by the Founders they are the legacy of Whigs and Tories,Lords and Commons,,etc.There is really nothing new under the sun.
The hoopla and hoop de do about the Kavanaugh nomination and confirmation would still be an insult to women and a disgrace for so called judicial procews and tempeament but would be slightly less troublesome wee not lifetime tenure attached.So much for the wisdom of Originalism that saw lifetime as 45-50 years but not 80 to 90 and beyond.

Welcome to New Day USA

The Octogenarians

As Kavanaugh begins his service as associate Supreme Court Justice and assumes the ridiculous mantle of martyr ,Kanye West carries hi(s MF…ing  rhetoric laced) bipolar illness into a new center tent  exhibition in MOM’s clown circus.The swamp that Trumpism represents has no respect for human suffering,whether it is in the form of hurricane disaster,probable murder of a respected Washington Post jounalist in an embassy,sentencing of more and more of those involved with the 2016 campaign etc.etc.The Republican party now prepares for a blue wave that will probably cost them the House by concentrating their effort on retaining control of the senate and depending on the likes of McConnell and Graham to manipulate the cerebral and visceral lever needed to resist senatorial accountability..

Dividing the nation,projecting destructiveness on political opposition,controlling the supreme court with the addition of  an advocate of imperial presidency indicates a man who will not willingly give up…

Identity Crisis in the Tennis World

The Octogenarians

There is a new U.S.Open women’s tennis champion.Her name is Osaka and she is an “other”. She defeated another “other”(Keys)in their semifinal and took on the best player in the history of women’s tennis,probably of all time(I believe that Serena didn’t see the coaching but her coach was coaching The rule is absurd every coach coaches in these events.But Serena did not act well perhaps;the years of discrimination,amazingly bad and unfair calls bubbled over and in particular affecting a role that she has adopted defender of women’s rights.From a performance point of view,against youth and power coupled with nerve ,Serena at 37 and a mother, cannot afford the slow starts that she demonstrates of late.’LeBron James can carry trifurcated leadership.(Instrumental skill,race inspiration,defense of the urban poor,but he doesn’t need to fight for men’s rights..In the meantime Osaka was cheated.She should not have been booed.Serena’s gracious acknowledgement came too late and…

Fear.Fire,Fury,and Futility vs a Fearful Watchdog

The Octogenarians

Emolument clauses won’t help.The blue wave (if it comes) can only push MOM closer to desperate action.If the media want a hero they should supply their own.A man who is buddy buddy with Russian autocrats,thugs,secret service etc would not hesitate to pass the word for the elimination of a “deep throat”.Apparently operating without Putin the word was passed on Assad, an order that was not obeyed.”Little room to maneuver except into psychosis” ominous…What about “the Football??!!”

Binary Thinking and Teleological Projections from MOM threaten our Country!

The Octogenarians

The denuclearization agreement  with North Korea turns out to be nonsense, the agreement with Russia is first undisclosed and then denied,and in the interludes between disclosures of intemperate and base sexual behavior,we are treated to MOM’s tariff and treaty expertise.We are told that his impeachment will cause national economic disaster and bring violence to the streets.In fact a Democratic party surge in the midterm elections will also bring codified violence to the streets.MS 13 will rain havoc in our towns and cities.The DSM 3 terminology “little room to manuever except into psychosis” ominously comes to mind.The wretched treatment of John Mcain’s death was an indicator of the smallness of our POTUS.

MOM cannot engage in complex thought; . his thinking is” go or no go”.His deal making involves only two parties,winner and loser.He cannot understand that destroying our participation  in international agreements  forces us to compete with economic blocs (Trans…

The Nature of Undeclared War:OurNational Politics Play into Real War.

The Octogenarians

While The Apprentice goes into its 16th year, this year being the second starring MOM and the White House with an early villain(I know villainess is politically incorrect) tries to emulate a hero(heroine),MOM,aka POTUS continues his affinity for autocrats (dictators) and his subservience to Putin.He is now adding security clearance withdrawal to his armamentarium of chronic lying,brandishing the pardon and defying all constraints on unilateral use of power. Democratic party incompetence and Republican party malfeasance allow this three ring Apprentice circus to go on and on.In the meantime MOM takes credit for a booming economy while all the indications are that the huge deficit and his declared trade wars,tariffs and relentless deregulation are accelerating the transfer of wealth internally to a top 1% and presage an economic decline that can take first our economy and then the world economy steeply down.IN THIS INCREASINGLY LIKELY SCENARIO THE ONLY QUESTION IS HOW…
