Ho ho ho! It’s that time of year again. Here’s JHK’s holiday classic: A Christmas Orphan.

11-year-old Jeff Greenaway hears his mom and dad argue one night after an office Christmas party. He infers from their garbled squabble that he is an orphan, found in a willow basket on the welcome mat outside their New York apartment. Thinking now that his parents are imposters, he steals away to Grand Central Station and buys a train ticket to Drakesville, Vermont, where he intends to start life all over again.

He Is Risen… But For How Long?

Support this blog by visiting Jim’s Patreon Page! If the first forty-eight hours are any measure of the alleged Trumptopia-to-come, the leading man in this national melodrama appears to be meshuga.

America Versus the Deep State

Support this blog by visiting Jim’s Patreon Page! The bamboozlement of the public is nearly complete.

Trumpxuberance… Until It’s Not

The Deepening Deep State

 Support this website by visiting Jim’s Patreon Page! One amusing angle on the news media broadside about Russia “hacking” the US election is the failure to mention — or even imagine! — that the US incessantly and continually runs propaganda psy-ops against every other country in the world.
