I had an epiphany this morning. Take two unrelated stories from the last couple weeks. 1)The deadbeat son living in his parents basement getting evicted, and 2) the G6 twerps getting all fussy about Trump ending 70 years of free ride. Hmmm. Must be a correlation somewhere there.

Alec Baldwin makes his prediction re the NoKo Summit:

“As soon as you have the appearance of that feather in his cap, they’re going to fire [special counsel Robert] Mueller."

I love when people back up their filters by making a prediction. Proof of the pudding, baby!

Yeah, Alec, that's the ticket. This entire summit was organized to provide cover for firing Robert Mueller. LOL

Alec is wrestling with his constant regression. It'll soon be time for riding in the short bus again.

The Rat had that ripoff "Yes we can" and "Yes we did" tagline.

I'd say a good one for the Trump Legions would be:
"WATCH THIS."

Kevlar Kid

For years lesser presidents have been elected on the promise "I know what I'm doing."

Mr. Trump is more of the practical: "I know how this shit works and what it's capable of."

Hopefully a new standard.

DCSCA

'Wondering if Kudlow suffered congestive failure or cardiac arrest...'

'Wonder' more if it was cocaine induced. The man was excessively manic on the Sunday shows and w/his history, 'heart attack' makes for a good cover story. The man has had relapses and given more breaks than a 1965 Mustang. Retire him; fire him or send him back to cable TV but get him out of government. If you had his record there's no way you could get security clearance to drive a bus, let alone work at the WH.

Smartening up the Iggy:

Economist Is Said to Enter A Six-Month Drug Program

By SYLVIA NASAR – NYT, 7-4-1995

Lawrence A. Kudlow, the former Wall Street economist, went to Minneapolis yesterday to check into a long-term, residential drug treatment program at Hazelden Foundation, his wife, Judith, said. Mr. Kudlow, 47, agreed to undergo the six-month Hazelden program, where Kitty Dukakis, Eric Clapton and other well-known people have sought help, after three shorter treatments in the last two and half years for cocaine and alcohol habits, his wife said yesterday.

Fifteen months ago, Mr. Kudlow made a highly public confession of his drug problem [a $10,000/month cocaine habit] shortly after he was forced to resign as chief economist at Bear Stearns. He also made a fresh career start as a conservative political commentator for television and magazines and said he believed that he had overcome his addiction. But over the weekend, court papers filed by Mrs. Kudlow indicated that he may have lost his battle against cocaine. In a filing on Thursday, she petitioned the New York State Supreme Court in Manhattan for a divorce and an order to prevent Mr. Kudlow from tapping their Bear Stearn’s retirement account to pay for a weeks-long cocaine binge. “The defendant will use such money to buy cocaine,” she stated in an affidavit, “and in so doing will likely suffer a fatal overdose and will dissipate the only remaining liquid marital assets.” Mr. Kudlow could not be reached for comment yesterday. A Hazelden spokesman said the treatment center could not say whether or not a patient had checked in because of Federal regulations.

Mr. Kudlow’s apparent setback comes a time when he appeared to have turned his career around. After losing his $800,000-a-year Wall Street job, Mr. Kudlow landed quickly on his feet. His disclosure of cocaine problems in an interview with The New York Times prompted an outpouring of sympathy. He landed a consulting position at Montgomery Securities in San Francisco. And Mr. Kudlow, who was President Ronald Reagan’s budget director and considered one of the brighter lights in the New York Republican Party, regained his political footing. He became economics editor of the conservative magazine National Review and started dispensing political advice again, sharing a platform with Gov. Christine Whitman of New Jersey. Indeed, Mr. Kudlow had urged her to cut taxes sharply, an issue that helped sweep her into office.

As recently as several weeks ago, Mr. Kudlow seemed to have regained his former professional stature. He shared a dais last month with Alan Greenspan, the chairman of the Federal Reserve, when he addressed New York’s financial elite. A few weeks earlier, Mr. Kudlow was appointed by Jack F. Kemp, Secretary of Housing under President George Bush, to a commission to study how best to cut taxes. Always immaculately dressed and ready with a clever line, Mr. Kudlow seemed always to be racing between television studios and from speech to speech. There were occasional signs of stress: the client presentation at Montgomery Securities that he missed or missed deadlines at the National Review [Buckley fired him.] In the end, the occasional slip turned into something far more frightening.

“He had slips but he was sober for big intervals,” Mrs. Kudlow said in a telephone interview. “He was doing everything. He was going to A.A. He was going to church. He was seeing his counselor. He was determined to overcome this, but it just overpowered him.” According to Mrs. Kudlow, her husband initially resisted the idea of long-term treatment, which is expensive, disruptive and almost impossible to hide, even though two monthlong and one weeklong treatment program had not been enough. Instead, he turned more to drugs.

In the end, she said she decided to act. Mrs. Kudlow, a former press secretary for the Department of Justice and now a painter, said she did not intend to end her marriage to Mr. Kudlow. The divorce action, she said, was a legal device to keep him from using the money to buy more cocaine. As it turned out, she added, it also helped convince Mr. Kudlow that he had to take drastic measures.

“It came down to saving his life,” she said. “I have no intention of divorcing him, but I had to take a hard line.” What happens now? Mrs. Kudlow said she looks forward to life together with him but a very different one from the fast-paced, high profile existence the couple shared in Manhattan. She said in the affidavit that she planned to sell their apartments to pay for Mr. Kudlow’s treatment and to begin a new life outside of New York City with her husband.”

The man's history is his own making and he has been cut more breaks than he deserves.

The guy is a time bomb. As late as 2013 he whined about fears of relapses and going to AA daily. Has he been lately? Did he go in Canada? There's zero rationale for risking appointing this individual to a high government position. And there are better people in this country who can do the job just as well-- maybe better.

I missed Kevlar Kid's earlier post comparing Trumps style to that of Stonewall Jackson. Kevlar has a point; Jackson did not reveal his plans or intentions until the very last minute. It drove his subordinates wild--and of course since Jackson was a great general, he did great damage to the enemy. He also moved fast--his soldiers were called Jackson's Foot Cavalry. Those who followed him loved him. Those who opposed him--not so much.


Like Trump, Jackson was a teetotaler.

Here's one of fav's, General Keane, on with Shannon Bream with his take. My long transcript:

Shannon: ...You have always ben one of the ones who always thought this meeting would come to fruition. What do you make of what we've seen so far?

Gen Keane: Well I think we're getting off on the right foot. First of all it is Kim Jung Un who requested the 1 on 1 meeting, just with interpreters only. I think he really wanted to get a feel for the President and get himself comfortable. You know that "Saving Face" is a major issue in the Asian community. I don't think he wanted to show any discomfort in front of his own advisors and that's why he wanted that 1-on-1 meeting, not so much to accomplish major substantive issues, but just to get to know each other. What I think is happening here is Kim Jung Un himself and his advisors have already told Secretary Pompeo that he's willing to De-Nuclearize, but the proof of that, and I think that is why President Trump has shown some optimism about the Summit that is now underway, but the real issue is "How do we tell if that is actually going to come to pass? " Here's how: Because we'll get into a discussion---you have to identify and locate for us your Nuclear Arsenal. By that I mean they have about 10 to 20 weapons we believe, we don't know where all of them are, so they have to identify and locate where those weapons are, where the fuel sites are for those weapons, where the research sites are, where the storage sites are. They've got about 70 to 80 Ballistic Missiles. We know where most of them are, but not where ALL of them are. They have to identify and locate that for us. That is when you start to see the possibility that this would be successful, if they're willing to come forward with that information, which is after all their most secret and guarded information.

Shannon: Yeah, and what they feel guaranties the safety of the regime, so you got to imagine it's going to be a good deal for them they're going to have to believe, in order to cough up that information.

Shannon: ...ending the Korean War...is one of the main goals of these conversations.

Gen Keane: No doubt about it. What could likely happen as a result of this Summit, is to begin the process that would lead to the end of The Korean War and the Armistice, which leads also to a Peace Treaty. In other words we commit to the process, we don't commit to the end state. But absolutely the Intermediate Objective that has to be achieved before any Peace treaty is brought to the Senate for Ratification is the De-Nuclearization of North Korea. That is an an absolute imperative. The Trump Team is very cognizant of that fact. They will not trade away a Peace Treaty, and ending the War, prior to De-Nuclearization. What they will do though is they will commit to the Process. The other thing that they can commit to is to commit to a process of Normalization with North Korea, so we can exchange Liaison Officers, etc. That is just the Process, so there are a lot of things that can be accomplished at this Summit, that puts in motion what is the Ultimate Objective for the United States, which is De-Nuclearization that is complete and also verifiable, and if they start to commit for identification and location, then the next question I'm sure Secretary Pompeo put on the table is we need to verify it, we want US Inspectors involved, we're willing to have other Independent Inspectors, but we're NOT going to turn this over to the IAEA as it's been done in the past because they have made false claims and we're not going to go down that road. That is another shoe that has to drop if North Korea is truly committed to De-Nuclearization.
