UPDATED: Is English Dead In England?

Celebrity, English, Journalism, The West, The Zeitgeist

Check out this paragraph in the Daily Mail. I did not read beyond it.

… it was noted that the star either went of his meds completely or starting taking less once the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star started experiencing anxiety after her robbery that left her bound and gagged.

From: “Kanye West’s breakdown …”

UPDATE:

Judge Andrew Napolitano’s juvenile style: “What if, what if, what if” times 12. WTF! A good editor would’ve demanded a rewrite.

 

What Good Is Jeff Sessions If He CAN’T STOP GROVELLING for NOTHING

Democrats, Donald Trump, English, Russia

Why is it so hard for Jeff Sessions to say this: “Senators meet foreign diplomats all the the time. Establishment members are lying when they say they don’t meet with Russian diplomats. (And that includes Republican sleeper cells like Jason Chaffetz, Kevin McCarthy, Rob Portman and Barbara Comstock.)

These diplomats will try to curry favor with an erratic super power with nukes: the United States of America. Are you suggesting I’d betray America? Get out of my way. I have work to do.”

I know nothing about Jeff Sessions, except that he appears very frightened and not terribly sharp. He could be the opposite of those. The sharks smell fear. Like President Trump, moreover, Sessions’ pronouns are often missing a subject. His jumbled speech did nothing to bolster a weak, apologetic stance on the Russophobia gripping the DC complex.

UPDATED: Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s 1st Press Conference 1/23/17

Donald Trump, English, Media, Trade

The chummy tweet Press Secretary Sean Spicer shot to his awful predecessor, Josh Earnest, is the only bad thing in an otherwise spectacular first press conference. With his vigor, energy and focus, Spicer’s boss, POTUS Trump, puts 20-year-olds to shame.

The Endless Arrogance Of Obama

Barack Obama, Donald Trump, Elections, English

Barack Obama began his presidency with hubris, promising in 2008 that, “This was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal.” He ends his eight lean years with the same boundless arrogance:

“I’m confident that if I had run again and articulated [my vision of progressive change], I think I could’ve mobilized a majority of the American people to rally behind it.”

So said Obama to “his former senior adviser David Axelrod in an interview for the ‘The Axe Files.'”

Incidentally, while campaigning for Hillary Clinton, Obama told voters they had to vote for her because his legacy was at stake. Now that voters rejected Hillary and with her his legacy, Obama is denying that the devastating Democratic defeat was a reflection on that legacy.

Loser.

The wisest part of the interview with Obama is this:

“I have to — I have to be quiet for a while. I — I — and I don’t mean politically, I mean internally. I have to still myself and…”

What a great pick-up line.

And of course, Obama uses the part perfect tense correctly, quite rare in American letters these days. And he conjugates the verb to “run” correctly. Said the president, “If I had run again …” It would have been better had Obama said, “Had I run again.” Most writers or TV heads can’t conjugate. Sickening.
