A(nother) Warning!

"Hopefully others will remedy the error of silence and choose to speak out.” Anonymous

In response and in harmony with the above plaintive exhortation, I offer the following as I am A. Nonny Moose, Too.

While not currently a "senior Trump administration official", you will also hear [sic] a great deal from me and other highly-placed officials. But mostly from me. Like my alleged predecessor, it's the great upside of being A. Nonny Moose, Too. No one really knows if s/he/them or I actually exist. Kinda like the famed "Whistleblower", we just may be a pigment [sic] of Atom Schifty's oh-so-fertile imagination!


Just sayin'…

We read "… there is no better witness to [Trump's] character than his own words and no better evidence of the danger he poses than his own conduct…” . And there is no better way to distribute character assassination and general misanthropy either, than via the questionable attribution from Someone Unknown to Someone Else Unknown or, if accurately named, not inclined to respond to an Anonymous libel. Can you sue Anonymous anonymously?

What better way to make waves in the Great Swamp and rile the pseudo Journalistas than some alleged eye and ear witness intel from a "senior Trump administration official"! You may recognize it as the old 'Quotes from Authority' gambit so popular in toney Ivy League Debating Clubs. It works equally well in Tell-All books. As I, A. Nonny Moose, Too, shall also reveal: that Other Guy/Gal/Composite Apparition isn't the only one who can conjure quotes! Did I mention I was also and often "in on meetings with the president"? Go ahead – ask me what color tie he was wearing!

The Other Anon has cleverly insisted on "remain[ing] anonymous in the book but has agreed to do at least one interview with a journalist". As Annony Moose, Too, I, like my name demands, agree to "Two" interviews with any journalist who has the bona fides to call him/herself one. Call me any time; my number's unlisted, of course.

My Unknown Nemisis states " The truth about the president must be spoken, not after Americans have stood in the voting booth to consider whether to give him another term and not after he has departed office.". Of course I agree. But who can trust a person or entity that coyly hides behind Anonymity, limits his contact with the 4th Estate and relies on social media and other rumor mills to act as his/her/its Marketing Dept? Is he taking lessons from Atom Shift? Or jittery his 'revelations' will violate National Security and he'll get the Julian Assange treatment?

Quoted in, of all places, the New York Times, Anonynous boldly states "It may be cold comfort in this chaotic era, but Americans should know that there are adults in the room." Actual adults contend "Any real adults in the room would act like real adults, not like some playground tattle-tale with a grudge because he didn't get picked for Dodge Ball."

Truth and Guts are inextricably connected. Hiding behind curtains of anonymity is gutless. When it comes to fact and accuracy, one may properly presume the forthcoming 'tell-all' will likely tell less.

Buy my book instead.

A.Nonny Moose, Too

From The Next President

To any aspiring Democratic politician:

If you'd like to be President one day --  Maybe soon --  Put the following in a full page ad in the WaPo, get yourself booked on some talk shows and read this: 


An Open Letter from a Democratic Politician to all Democratic Politicians

My fellow Democrats – Let's face it; we blew it. Lead by Speaker Pelosi, Chairman Schiff and Chairman Nadler, these past 3 years we have conducted ourselves in a way that has severely divided America. Continuing with this impeachment hoax – and it is a hoax and we all know it - will only destroy the Democratic Party and impugn all the great principles we once stood for. Our Leadership – and our so-called 'friends' in the media – have strongly encouraged, even threatened us, if did not 'toe the line'. As a result, regardless of where you're from or how long you've been in office, very few of us will be returning after the coming elections.


We have only one choice to save America and th…

Gillette, Toxic Masculinity and the F Word

The Gillette "Toxic Masculinity" commercial not-so-subtle lecturing men (their primary clientele) about being Kinder, Gentler Wussies the company says they should be is rapidly fading into the dust of Catholics and Indians, yesterday's news. But before the Forgettable is actually forgotten, here are a couple hardly-mentioned observations about why this TV spot got its embarrassing 15 minutes of fame.

Socialism and the Epidemic of Ignorance

The Big Debate among all the Brainiacs these days (Real, Faux, Wishful, Self-Anointed): Will Socialism and its Simplistic Sycophants be successful here in the bastion of (crony) Capitalism, America? From FOX to C-SPAN, WaPo to NYT, Conservative pundits pound the podium prognosticating "NEVER"! They slice and dice the Russians (of course), the "Chi-Coms" (Limbaugh varietals), Little Rocket Man, Maduro, Bernie and AOC with an admonition from noted political critics Rocky and Bullwinkle: "That trick never works!".
