Writes Mark Seiler:
The article by Jeff Stein in The Daily Beast that Zero Hedge refers to begins thus, “What we had here was a failure to communicate.” It is one of the most famous lines from cinema pulled from Cool Hand Luke. It sums up the Captain’s attitude that prison is “for your own good” to which Luke replies, “I wish you’d stop bein’ so good to me, Captain.” at which point the character played so powerfully by Strother Martin proceeds to hit Luke in the head with a blackjack knocking him down a knoll. Martin then utters the iconic sentence.
Cool Hand Luke is perhaps the epitome of movies showing how The State deals with those who do not conform to its diktats. A minor transgression is worthy of the death penalty if one refuses to submit and obey the arbitrary, brutal nature of the thing called Government. Stein apparently uses this quote with no sense of irony. For those who refuse to join the emerging police state, we are all on the chain gang now.
I guess Stein’s next piece will deal with Biden’s Covid plans and begin with a quote from One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, “It’s medication time.”.

Shame on Trump for not pardoning Assange, Snowden, and Kiriakou. And for not releasing the remaining secret JFK assassination records.

Writes Robert Conn
What happened in 2020 was really no different than what the Republican establishment did to Barry in 1964. In ’64 it was done prior to the election with the Republicans for LBJ. The establishment did not want to lose control to the Goldwater wing. While Goldwater was not going to win, the establishment wanted to assure themselves the right’s hold on the party was broken. In ’20-’21 the establishment wanted to remove Trump. The Republican establishment was complicit in the defeat of Trump.
While I do NOT believe Trump was the answer to the maiden’s prayer he was probably the best available at the time. No one can be sure how it will all play out in 10 years. Perhaps Pence can be appointed someday as US ambassador to the Court of St. James.3:42 pm on January 20, 2021 Email Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr.

So, Lew, after looking at your last three Political Theater posts, I’m wondering: What is Mexico’s policy regarding asylum seekers?
