 It is really  mind-boggling  to see the United States Department of Defense  refuse  permission for their  string band to appear at a Memphis Christmas celebration based on “ politically correct”  theory that was  invented  as an inside joke  by the International communist movement (Comintern).

But it happened  Thursday last.

Many of us who actually lived in the 1930s  when Communists  were everywhere in America and did not need to  veil  their activities  with  fake   mottos  and pseudonyms,  they openly couched  their printed  code phrases  as “ jokes”  such as:
“Comrade ! our next  project  will be  to  wreck  religion ( the opiate of the masses)  by banning  the book of common prayer and  confessionals”.  OP:  “ Have you heard comrade,  that we will promulgate  laws  to  end  profits and communize  all property exchange ?”
 That sort of thing appeared in  The Daily Worker, another communist papers and magazines mostly in New York City but circulated nationally.  These “gags”  were  called correct political goals.  Ergo,  the birth of political correctness, the PeeCee plague.

It became a password in interstate conspiracy recognition in this sort of colloquy :
"Comrade ! Your premise is factually incorrect !"

"Maybe, Comrade, but it IS politically 
correct !" SEE MORE HERE

 So here is Todd Starnes,  a solid and ethical journalist who made his rep   on Fox news radio.  He organizes a big Christmas  extravaganza every year in Memphis . He thought that this huge audience  would respond positively and excitedly to an appearance by  the United States Army  string band,  which is made up of four  different guitars, a banjo and a mandolin.  Starnes  felt  their freshness and unique sound  would captivate   everyone and  bring deserved recognition  to the sextet.

He was shocked when the Pentagon  sent him a terse  note declining  to allow participation by the  string band in his celebration  because  “ investigation has revealed  it is a religious event”  with involvement prohibited by Pentagon rules and regulations.

In seeking advice,  Starnes went to  his friend, former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee ( no small shakes  of a  string-picker himself). Gov. Huckabee  said he knew of no law that would prevent a U.S. Army musician  from playing  holiday music,  even if it were in a church.  
Now, actually,  what we have here  is  the Department of Defense  banning its musicians from playing “Jingle Bells” !

Therefore, the cultural  "Halfway House" of the Blues, and many thousands  of Christmas  celebrants  will be deprived  of the delicious  sounds of the six  U.S. Army musical  specialists this Christmas.

But all bets are off  for Christmas  20 17,  because as another picker,  Bob Dylan  said, “ Somethin’s Blowin' on The Wind” !

And this storm is thoroughly inimical  to political correctness….PARTICULARLY   in our military.
 That  is what all those red counties  in Ohio, Iowa,  Wisconsin,  Pennsylvania,  Indiana, the Dakotas and the Southeast  are all about..
 They not only do not  talk PeeCee  in Keokuk and Racine. They don’t want their boys and girls in uniform  to talk it either.

Adios Banditos !!

Since our old ultraliberal friend from Eastern Oklahoma went to the True World,  we don't have a single acquaintance who subscribes to the New York Times, but it is difficult to absent oneself from the spiral of this fading fishwrapper.

On Sunday, poor  "Pinch"  Sulzberger wrote an open letter to all his staff and to all his paper's dwindling readership, purportedly to cry havoc and  mea culpa  at the same time while not crying mea culpa and all. He is NYT publisher.

In his condescending, snotty, triple speak opus, the publisher of the Old Spayed Lady  promised that everyone on the Times "will reflect and rededicate the paper  to reporting the news honestly..."

He then went on to say that  his shameless sheet had reported every bit of the just completed 2016 presidential election "without bias".

This debasing burble came after his former star reporter Michael Goodwin, the magazine Vanity Fair and his own "public editor" (ombudsman)  had called him on the carpet to shame him and command him to clean up the once- proud voice of probity, now deteriorated into a hoarse mumbling of warped and twisted political Bullspit.

But as noted above, what used to be a beacon of journalism now resembles a very dead  fish following inevitable natural path, rotting from "the Head" downward.

There is no excitement left, because the momentum of boycott  and reader-disaffection will take their enormous  toll.

There is, of course, the exciting possibility that the multibillionaire Mexican investor, Carlos Slim, the Times' major stockholder  could  move the crippled and  despoiled Queen of print to some new  location south of the Rio Grande. Would  he DARE ?

It would be funnier than Back to the Future or Blazing Saddles to see Tommy Friedman, Paul Krugman, Maureen Dowd and a lesser cast of   thousands operating from a hacienda in the neighborhood of   Popocatapetl  eruptions.  

Viva  Los Tiempos !!!
