It feels like war right now. If some radical young people (who are left-leaning) would build a street barricade, I would man it. But, then I might be heaved out due to my reputation with young women, who agreed to be my muse. How I saw myself, then, is topicle, because InTouch magazine just came out with the Stormy Trump Story, wherein Donald compares this Porn Star to his daughter. Where do you go from here? Do we stake the President of the United States on the nearest red ant hill?
I think I am still a newspaper man. But, I am tempted to drop out of society, change my name, and become a Pulp Fiction Writer along the lines of Kilgore Trout. Whatever went down between my muses, you will never find wrinkled old ladies on the cover of magazines. I am so in love with ‘The Wolf-girl of Josselyn’. Rena, Belle, and Alley, made damn sure I spend the rest of my life – in hell!
I have been trying to keep my ultrausutic head above water after the Fake Abuser site posted a photo of me. I was going to summon the members of ‘The White Rose’ in my defence, but then I found out this name was taken from a novel by a German author who wrote ‘The Treasure of Sierra Madre’ . This is foreign Pulp Fiction.
Here is Kruchev’s kid on Stalin and Trump. To my dismay I can not find any pulp illustrations of Stalin and his Reds, which might suggest all pulp fiction illustrators were Communists. If true, Ol’ Joe McCarthy was really on to something. He did not go far enough!
I discovered THE TRUTH OF LIFE this morning, and will post on it in a day or two. Then, the world will come to an end. Compare the first two videos. The first is a Republican Senator attacking the President. The second is a Brit whose tribe defended Trump. Behold, and despair, for this is God and His Parrot, his interpreter! What is the core message? I love the flaked paint on the wall, the purple curtain, the unidentified objects…….The Heavenly Arthurian Grail Music, which holds so much promise!
Here is a Confused Mr. Rosewater, and Peter Sellers in The Mouse That Roared. We are all bid to take a stand and live by our convictions – right or wrong! As a reporter, I intended to be all so very kind. But, this became almost impossible, until my fictional writer mind took over, and began to paint Rena in the light I saw her in. She is Rocket Girl whom you will meet in short while.

“Haitians will no longer be eligible for U.S. visas given to low-skilled workers, the Trump administration said on Wednesday, bringing an end to a small-scale effort to employ Haitians in the United States after a catastrophic 2010 earthquake.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced the change less than a week after President Donald Trump reportedly questioned in an Oval Office meeting why the United States would want to take in immigrants from Haiti and African nations, referring to them as “shithole” countries. Trump has denied using that word.
DHS said in a regulatory filing that it was removing Haiti from lists of more than 80 countries whose citizens can be granted H-2A and H-2B visas, given to seasonal workers in agriculture and other industries.”
The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (originally titled Der Schatz der Sierra Madre) is a 1927 adventure novel by bilingual German author B. Traven, whose identity remains unknown. In the book, two destitute American men in the 1920s join an older American man in Mexico to prospect for gold. John Huston adapted the book as a 1948 film of the same name.
Under Gestapo interrogation, Hans Scholl gave several explanations for the origin of the name “The White Rose,” and suggested he may have chosen it while he was under the emotional influence of a 19th-century poem with the same name by German poet Clemens Brentano. It was also speculated that the name might have been taken from a German novel Die Weiße Rose (The White Rose), published in Berlin in 1929 and written by B. Traven, the German author of The Treasure of the Sierra Madre. Hans Scholl and Alex Schmorell had read this novel. They also wrote that the symbol of the white rose was intended to represent purity and innocence in the face of evil.[
As a former Soviet citizen, I am frequently overcome by a horror-movie feeling of fear and disbelief. It’s almost as if I don’t know where I am. In cosmopolitan New York? Or back in monotonous Moscow, listening to Soviet leaders boasting from the Kremlin about Communism’s drummed-up victories and denouncing their illusory enemies?
Arizona Senator Jeff Flake delivered a pre-planned speech from the Senate floor on Wednesday criticizing the president’s attacks on the press. “Mr. President, it is a testament to the condition of our democracy that our own president uses words infamously spoken by Joseph Stalin to describe his enemies,” Flake said. Frankly, Trump’s America is in some ways even worse than it was during my Soviet childhood. When I was growing up in Moscow in the 1970s, not even Pravda used such menacing language for the Kremlin’s critics.
In the early years after the 1917 Bolshevik revolution, and particularly under Joseph Stalin’s despotic regime in the 1930s, “enemies of the people” emerged as the regime’s most terrifying label. During Stalin’s Great Purges of 1936-38, the term vragi naroda (enemies of the people) branded all those who disagreed with the Kremlin — whether about the planned economy, unfree press or predetermined election results. That label, which defined Soviet reality, typically resulted in immediate death or imprisonment within the Gulag of harsh labor camps.
This changed when Nikita S. Khrushchev, my great-grandfather, denounced his predecessor Stalin during a 1956 speech to the Communist Party. Khrushchev dismantled the Stalinesque system of the Gulag camps, and, perhaps as important, the vragi naroda became a tragedy of the past. The term itself was retired; Khrushchev considered the hateful language damaging to the Soviet Union’s fragile recovery from totalitarianism.
WASHINGTON — President Trump — who gleefully questioned President Barack Obama’s birthplace for years without evidence, long insisted on the guilt of the Central Park Five despite exonerating proof and claimed that millions of illegal ballots cost him the popular vote in 2016 — wanted to have a word with the American public about precision in reporting.
The execution was not flawless.
On Wednesday, after weeks of shifting deadlines, cryptic clues and executive obfuscation, Mr. Trump was to release his long-promised “Fake News Awards,” an anti-media project that had alarmed advocates of press freedom and heartened his political base.
“And the FAKE NEWS winners are …,” he wrote on Twitter at 8 p.m.
The message linked to a malfunctioning page on the Republican National Committee website. An error screen read: “The site is temporarily offline, we are working to bring it back up. Please try back later.”
The page returned less than an hour later as something resembling a Republican Party press release, with a list of Trump-era accomplishments and jabs at news organizations.
The “winners” were CNN, mentioned four times; The New York Times, with two mentions; and ABC, The Washington Post, Time and Newsweek, with one mention apiece.
