Inspection- Stats to KILT for: WHAT “33%?”

 This is a crucial question: no matter who you support in ANY election.
 I freely admit: I had statistics in public school and, if I remember right, twice in college. It wasn’t my major. I found it boring. I Inspectiononly took it because it was required with Liberal Arts and then because I switched to Communications/Mass Media from English and, yes, that was important enough for my new degree I had to at least sit in on the class. And again: this is what I seem to remember.
 Nope: “I ain’t anybody’s statistician.” Read more

A Mission to Tell a Story About Where We Might Be Heading as a Society

n my lifetime, I’ve had maybe only a dozen days like the one I woke up to this morning.

It’s that rare day that a new film of mine will have its World Premiere, and that is what will happen tonight for FAHRENHEIT 11/9 at the Opening Night kick-off of the Toronto International Film Festival, North America’s premiere film event. I am just hours away from that moment when the lights will dim, the curtain will rise and my work, with all its revelations and warnings and dangerous ideas — well, dangerous politically to a President who has no intention of ever leaving office unless the Secret Service physically remove him — will be shared with the world. This siren call of a movie is my contribution to ignite the fire underneath a despairing, dispirited public who must — MUST — do its job and end the madness at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

I have spent the better part of this year constructing a film that will not only explain how the @#&% we ended up with Trump, but also help show us the way out. I must warn you — I do not pull ANY punches in the film. No one is spared – not even me.

It is already being talked about in the press I saw this morning as one of the most “anticipated” films of the fall. There’s already a wonderful piece in The Hollywood Reporter (which I’ll post later). I especially liked Time Out NY listing it as one of the must-see “horror movies” of the year! Haha. THAT it is.

What Happens When a Bad-Tempered, Distractible Doofus Runs an Empire?

One of the few things that Kaiser Wilhelm II, who ruled Germany from 1888 to 1918, had a talent for was causing outrage. A particular specialty was insulting other monarchs. He called the diminutive King Victor Emmanuel III of Italy “the dwarf” in front of the king’s own entourage. He called Prince (later Tsar) Ferdinand, of Bulgaria, “Fernando naso,” on account of his beaky nose, and spread rumors that he was a hermaphrodite. Since Wilhelm was notably indiscreet, people always knew what he was saying behind their backs. Ferdinand had his revenge. After a visit to Germany, in 1909, during which the Kaiser slapped him on the bottom in public and then refused to apologize, Ferdinand awarded a valuable arms contract that had been promised to the Germans to a French company instead.

Inspection- The REAL “Deep State”

 OK, maybe I was wrong. Maybe there is a “deep state.” And this “state” is indeed quite deep and has been failing miserably. But maybe, just maybe, the final, deepest, part of the deep state will win against the orange tyrant-wannabe.
Inspection So you can start doing your usual foam at the mouth rants, your usual name calling bullying, I’ll tell you who they all are. Maybe you can get the FBI to go after them instead. There are many, which makes the state deep indeed. There are millions. They are the American voters. Read more
