One Less (R) Vote

I'm not a Zombie so I don't know much about brains.

Well I know about Trump's brain.

Marion Diamond knows about brains. "Diamond’s research helped prove that the brain can physically change in response to external stimulation, growing cells when exposed to enriching experiences, even in older age. And that without enrichment (e.g. FAUX Snews), the brain can shrink."

I learned about glial cells from Diamond. Glial cells are like the housekeeping service for the neurons.

Why the hintergrundinformationen?

McCain's is 'most malignant of brain tumors.' His prognosis is grim (12 to 16 months remaining in his life).

"Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most common and aggressive primary brain tumor with an extremely poor prognosis in spite of multimodal treatment approaches. The estimated median survival in cases with GBM is about 12–16 months." the Glio means glial cells.

Some of us are old enough to remember McCain as a Pilot.

Cutting-Edge (pun) Treatments for Glioblastoma are on the Rise and Senator McCain will get the best money can buy!

There is no simple answer. Wait, and see.

In other news:

I already ordered a copy!

Although Bannon did not “make” Trump president in the way Karl Rove helped transport George W Bush from Austin to the White House, “Trump wouldn’t be president if it weren’t for Bannon”. Indeed, a month before Trump announced his candidacy in June 2015 and more than a year before Bannon joined the campaign, Trump was searching out Bannon at a conservative confab, the South Carolina Freedom Summit, going: “Where’s my Steve? Where’s my Steve?”

In Chapter 8, Green writes about how the GOP base had a vehemently anti-Fox News reaction to Kelly’s performance in that Cleveland debate, in which she badgered Trump with over-the-top questions.

Christie had set up a call with Obama on his cell phone in case Trump won but Trump, described as a germophobe, did not want Christie's cell phone next to his face.

A common practice in the aftermath of an American presidential election is the release of dozens of books by journalists who covered the whole thing. The deluge is already under way. Joshua Green’s Devil’s Bargain: Steve Bannon, Donald Trump, and the Storming of the Presidency, however, stands apart from the rest.

Bannon, more synthesist than strict adherent, brought to Guénon's Traditionalism a strong dose of Catholic social thought, in particular the concept of "subsidiarity": the principle expressed in Pope Pius XI's 1931 encyclical, Quadragesimo anno, that political matters should devolve to the lowest, least centralized authority that can responsibly handle them—a concept that, in a U.S. political context, mirrors small- ­government conservatism. Everywhere Bannon looked in the modern world, he saw signs of collapse and an encroaching globalist order stamping out the last vestiges of the traditional.

And now, one of Guenon's (Bannon) devotees has the ear of a president who doesn't know anything about anything. Deus vult!
