The Morning Report 6/15/18

feral.jpg

Good morning kids. The big story as we close out the week is the long-awaited IG Report on the FBI Clinton E-Mail Investigation. Well, Horowitz came, he saw and he conked out. No real surprise since Michael Horowitz has extensive ties to Obama, Clinton and the Deep State as well as Nazi collaborator George Soros. As Ace and the Horde have stated, this is not surprising at all. But, whitewashed and sanitized as it is, the revelations are no less infuriating, given what we know of Hillary and Obama. And even more rage-inducing is the complete tone-deaf, clueless and arrogant response of current FBI director Christopher Wray, who thinks that sensitivity training is what's needed and then all will be Efrem Zimbalist-like sweetness and light. In fact, what is needed is mass firings, trials and incarcerations with long sentences and stiff penalties for the likes of Comey, McCabe, Strzok, Page, Rosenfraud and more than likely Robert Mueller himself for covering up the crimes of Hillary Clinton and by extension Barack Obama. Which also means the same thing if not worse for them.

But this is the real world. Nothing will come of this except for a slap on the wrist for Jimmy Drama et al, and maybe a short stretch in Club Fed for McCabe, Strzok and Page followed by a high six-figure book deal and a slot on CNN or MSNBC. And as you digest or puke over all of that on top of your salmonella-tainted Sugar Smacks (see the link), the Robert Mueller kangaroo court persecution of PDT and his allies and associates grinds on and on and on and on. And in order to give the Democrat-Media Complex air cover, New York's new AG is going after the Trump Foundation, accusing the President and several of his children of using the funds for personal enrichment. This after the Clinton Foundation has been in existence since 2000 selling out America by the pound, and Erik "here-we-whip-the-women-just-around-midnight" Schneiderman ran cover for them when he was the shyster-in-chief of the NY AG office. Can you see the blood shooting out of my eyes yet?

At this stage, given the cancer and rot that is the Washington DC establishment and Deep State, beyond mass firings and imprisonment, I think the dismantling of the FBI is long overdue. It's bad enough that these people detest regular, honest, decent hardworking Americans. What's worse is that they have a contempt for the very institutions and laws that they took an oath to uphold. That cannot stand and that cannot be allowed to continue. That is the cancer that is, as Abe Lincoln said, is eating at the vitals of our nation. It's us or them. War.

The other big story continues to be the other group of frauds, criminals, traitors and "paskudnyaks" as represented by Paul Ryno and the RINOs who are attempting to push through a shameless Amnesty bill that has been described as the worst ever. Paul Mirengoff at Powerline has a good analysis of the politics involved and thinks even if it does pass in the House, it would get shot down in the Senate. He hopes (as we all do). Meanwhile Nancy Palsi is demagoguing through her dentures about "the children!" vis a vis the new zero tolerance policy about border detentions, and sadly, some in the GOP are going wobbly on it. Sheesh. Also, when pressed about illegals depressing the wages of real American citizens, Palsi blurts out a laugher, which is actually a mini truth bomb.

On the foreign policy front, a big under-the-radar summit is taking place between PDT and Xi, but the Chi-Coms are not on board with full denuclearization of the NorKs before the lifting of sanctions, and the Trump administration is pressing Cuba about the unknown sonic attacks on our diplomats. Domestically, some good news from the courts about Obamacare, free expression at polling stations and Sarah Huckabee-Sanders is a national treasure.

Lastly, a great piece from American Thinker about the right to discriminate and yesterday marked one year since the Democrat-inspired terrorist Hodgkinson - whose links and communications with Dick "turd-bin" Durbin are still being hushed up - shot up a Republican baseball practice and critically wounded several GOP politicians, almost killing Steve Scalise. As if we needed a reminder, that's what happens when Trump is literally Hitler, when Nancy Palsi calls for confrontation and when Obama wants his followers to get in our faces.

Anyway, links from around the world, across the nation and up your street. Have a better one and remain blessed.

13 The Democrat lie that "Trump only Won the election because of Comey" is going to backfire. It's just pissing people off and motivating them to vote.

Keep going down that road, Democrats. It's not your candidates and policies, it's the "Russian" and Jim Comey.

Posted by: Marcus T at June 15, 2018 07:32 AM (8Ku6c)

14 The IG report's structure is eerily similar to that of FBI Director Comey's July, 5 2016 statement absolving Hillary Clinton in the email 'matter': finding no actionable legal fault by blindly accepting the most favorable interpretation possible of every FBI action, then stating a long list of uncovered behaviors and actions which could be interpreted as illegal. And would most certainly result in vigorous prosecution if the subject(s) were private citizens, rather than privileged members of the Deep State.

This IG report is actually a bitter indictment of American government in the 21st Century.

"...a republic, if you can keep it...."

15 As has been clearly demonstrated by all of Horowitz's reports, Fast and Furious,McCabe and now Clinton investigation, these reports will show clear corruption and criminality in substance but after they go through the review process and thedeep staters get to make the the final edits, the conclusions will be that mistakes were made, give us more money so we can train our goons not to be corrupt biased shit weasels, WAKA, WAKA, and donít forget to pay your taxes citizen.


There was clear investigatory evidence of extreme bias against Trump and in favor of Clinton at every step of the way.

Emails and texts reveal that so the conclusion that the investigation was not impacted and affected by bias is absurd.

Apparently the only way the IG report conclusion fablists would be able to infer political bias would be for one of the conspirators to explicitly state,
"I would love to conduct a fair and impartial investigation but my
political bypasses preclude that!!

Apparently someone stating, explicitly, "...we won't let Trump win."
and after the election, "...im physically sick from the election
results.." among other revelations doesnít evince a bias that would materially impact the legitimacy of the investigation.

Ballocks!!!


And itís also clear as day that the executive summary and conclusions
written by the same IG officials who wrote the body of the investigative
findings, as Sundance notes.

There will be no salvation from any of these reports as has been shown clearly by Wrayís pathetic presser yesterday, the fix was and is in.

Here's how you know this whole fucking whitewash is scripted down to
Wrays pathetic and nauseating press conference..

No one asked Wray the most obvious question..

Reporter: Director Wray, after reading and digesting the report, do you
see any cause to re-open the Clinton Investigation?

Now we we know what his response would be but the question needs to be asked.

And it wasn't.


The other revolting development is that we now have Hillary Fucking Clinton tweeting out nonsense as this report has vindicated her and that she faces no further jeopardy.


Disgusting!!


There is nothing we can do about any of this as we don't have the power to intervene, we are
completely powerless here.


The rot is too deep and other than Trump fighting the good fight nobody in Congress is going to do anything about it either.


We are living through a multi-act production of The Aristocrats.

I don't know if JJ is going to cover this, but I've been watching this 42-minute NORK propaganda video covering KJU's meeting with Trump, and it's something to behold. The first five minutes deal with his leaving from N. Korea to attend, complete with goose-stepping soldier. The breathless female commentator is incredible to hear even though I don't understand a word.

It all makes more sense when you realize that the US government has been taken over by a hostile occupying enemy force that hates you and delights in tearing down your statues, corrupting your culture and stealing your life work.

You feel you have unalienable Rights and a Constitutional Republic, they know they have a tyrannical oligarchy, a caste system and a means and will to enforce it.

29 The report seems pretty damning to me, and sensible. I don't think all the intelligence agencies, and every agent in them, were out to get Trump. I think a few self-appointed Illuminati in the higher echelons were opposed to Trump and happy to put their fingers on the scales of justice, if they could. They also liked Hillary and Obama and were therefore reluctant to go full-bore on the email server. The report is not as black and white as an Oliver Stone movie, but there's enough there to make the leadership look pretty bad.

I think it's more damning in the way things are couched and phrased to minimize the criminality, as well as the insane spin that the FBI is a pillar of integrity except for one or two low-level employees who may have let their biases cloud there judgment here and there.

Posted by: J.J. Sefton at June 15, 2018 07:41 AM (VM6ev)

36 The texts between Strokz and Page, combined with the unusual way this investigation was conducted shows clear bias. Why wasn't the investigation handled by regular agents? Why wasn't a grand jury empaneled? Because that would have more likely produced a conviction.

Horowitz proceeds with what did happen and only gives passing reference to some of the "unusual" procedures. That's a mistake because "unusual' behavior by its very nature is compelled by circumstance and judgement. In this case that is clearly the material bias revealed in texts and other messages. Those are not extraneous acts, they are compelling material evidence of what drove the entire investigatory process.

Can we all agree to never separate children from their parents do to crime?
_____________________

Yep, these illegal alien parents cynically use their own children as pawns in their bid to extend their illegal presence in the U.S., exposing their kids to all kinds of danger from drug cartels and the harsh elements on the southern border, but we're the bad guys because we put the kids (or at least the ones we intercept) in air-conditioned buildings where they're safe, feed them 3 square meals and 2 snacks every day, give them medical care, play equipment and space, videos, classes, etc.

And of course we should never, ever separate such loving parents as these from their children, even temporarily, because the fact that the parents were willing to expose their kids to rape, torture, or worse from drug cartels, and/or death from heat exhaustion, dehydration, etc., just proves what good parents they are, and what excellent American citizens they will be once they've received amnesty for all their crimes in the U.S.!

We've seen it again and again and again. It's sickening and infuriating beyond belief.

How have we brought it about that our selection methods for high positions seem to zero in on utterly useless people?

I'll believe the Dems care about children being separated from their parents when they stop supporting late-term* abortion.

Really, Jake tapper tweeting bible verses because he cares - while his wife works at PP - is reallt too d@mn much.



*I know, but the Left uses extreme cases to make their point, so I think using an 81/2 mo. old fetus makes an excellent point - it's only the difference of about 12"for a viable baby that seems to matter to the Left (geography between in womb vs. out of womb).

I don't care anymore if "our team" starts doing things that would be termed "illegal", as we have fully and officially established that The Law is no longer operative as a going concern.

In other words, i'll start caring about "The Law" when the law is back in force. Until then, anything goes as far as i'm concerned. They've fully demonstrated who the Good Guys and the Bad Guys are to my satisfaction.

Well it didn't "stick" to my local liberal newspaper, they din't even cover it which means it is a non starter.

What bugs me the most is the AG sued the Trump clan in civil court not a criminal court but larded up the lawsuit with multiple alleged "criminal acts". That is not going to go over well for her when the suit actually makes it before a Judge and Trump's lawyers demand to know why they are being tried for criminal acts in a Civil Court.

That part was edited from "President Obama" to "senior government official" to just being erased from the report entirely.

If it had been Republicans pulling this illegal shit, with other Republicans "investigating" and providing cover for them in official reports, the MSM would be having a collective melt-down. But because it was Chocolate Messiah and Hilliarity Clinton doing all the illegal deeds, it's all good.

I've said that all the way up until now, too.

But this is different. This is a sea-change. The Clintons have gone directly after Trump's (legit) family and his (legit) charity. Fully knowing how illegitimate their own family and charity are. Sure, eveyone's always going after Trump for anything they can think of. But this charge stings the worst knowing the blatant, overt hypocrisy of the charge.

We have sufficient evidence, I believe, that Trump does not suffer insults like this passively. And we also have sufficient evidence that Trump will move any lever at his command in the name of payback. (He basically stole the Presidency itself out from under the nose of the Clintons all in the name of payback).

I fully admit to being a woo-woo, rah-rah Trump fanboi, but I also believe I am correct on this one.

There were two different, yet symbiotic, goals in this report.

Second, by doing that, protect Hillary and thereby protect Obama.

I'm talking about taking that message to your fellow Republicans. Most definitely your rock-ribbed, stiff-necked fellow Republicans that still simply refuse to believe that the FBI and DOJ are corrupted.

Those conversations will be uncomfortable - which is why most people avoid them. But if you want to do something that doesn't involve Letting It Burn - then it's got to start with uncomfortable conversations with the very people that enabled this shit, at the grass-roots level, in the first place.

when I was at the ship yard, I wasn't allowed to accept a bloody fucking ball cap due to the appearances of unethical behavior.

these cocksuckers are getting pussy, hundreds (thousands?) of dollars in gifts, and other shit and it "shows a need for more training"?

fuck it. burn the FIB to the ground, scatter the stones, and salt the earth where it stood.

149 We all know that a certain amount of corruption exists, but the Powers that Be limit the corruption so as not to overtly anger the public. And when the public is angered, they would isolate a patsy and have them excised and shunned from The System. (Tricky Dick. Warren Harding. Etc.) The System used to heal itself, based on pressures from within and from The People as well.

We've turned a corner now, though, where The System is no longer bipartisan. And i mean that literally, not in the cucky jerkoff "Mai Fwendsh" sense. The healing mechanism for The System i outlined above is no longer operative. Rather than encysting and rejecting the more overtly corrupt and incompetent members of the System, they are embraced and promoted. They are hailed as "Straight Shooters".

So there are two mechanisms at play in the downfall of The Law. The corrupt members of The System know a sufficiently large faction of the population either does not care about or approves of their lack of adherence to The Law, and so they get away with anything they want. They also know that, having purged or otherwise marginalized their opponents within The System itself, they shall have no opposition internally either.

Any solution to The Deep State Problem must account for this.

162 Morning all...I'm sure this was mentioned yesterday (or today) here but saw this at CTH:

[...] when one senior FBI official, Strzok, who was helping to lead the Russia investigation at the time, conveys in a text message to another senior FBI official, Page, that "we’ll stop" candidate Trump from being elected - after other extensive text messages between the two disparaging candidate Trump - it is not only indicative of a biased state of mind but, even more seriously, implies a willingness to take official action to impact the presidential candidate's electoral prospects.

This is antithetical to the core values of the FBI and the Department of Justice. Moreover, as we describe in Chapter Nine, in assessing Strzok's decision to prioritize the Russia investigation over following up on the Midyear-related investigative lead discovered on the Weiner laptop in October 2016, these text messages led us to conclude that we did not have confidence that Strzok's decision was free from bias.

Without naming specific names, they sure will.

And if, IF, any of this were to ever see the inside of a courtroom, guess what?

The IG report just made the defense for them. The defense lawyer points to the IV report and says,

184 "In fact, what is needed is mass firings, trials and incarcerations with long sentences and stiff penalties for the likes of Comey, McCabe, Strzok, Page, Rosenfraud and more than likely Robert Mueller himself for covering up the crimes of Hillary Clinton and by extension Barack Obama."

Mueller has conducted, at best, an obstruction of justice operation since the outset. While taking out Trump would be an added bonus, Mueller's primary mission has been to prevent justice from being done about a coup attempt. Mueller, at worst, is guilty of treason and in a just world would be tried and if convicted swing from the end of a rope like the evil, corrupt pig he is. In the real world, he needs to be treated as scum and his family and associates ostracized and their businesses ruined. This can be done in part by denying anyone affiliated with Mueller government contracts.

The FBI should have been dismantled years ago, and Wray's hubristic press conference yesterday highlights why. The Bureau cannot be mended. Again, in the real world, all we can do is demand local law enforcement not cooperate with the FBI and individually nullify government cases when we get on juries. Let's not pretend routine field agents are clean, either. If anything, yesterday's IG report shows the rot goes from top to the bottom. Only when the Imperial City cannot govern will it even attempt to reform. We may have to collapse the system to save it, and the only way to do so without violence is passive resistance. Given how much our system depends on trust, that is doable.

I think between snoozing Jeff and Mitch "China Boy" McConnell, the power of the President to actually control who is in charge of the Federal Tyranny's multiple overlapping interlocked incestuous bureaucracies is unbelievably constrained.

We need a Nixonian Saturday Night Massacre at DoJ and FBI, followed by indictments and trials in the hinterlands, for starters. Of course, none of that will happen, so I'm praying that my betters don't catch my name during the troubles!

Yeah, I'm staying away from Subrau.

I had a Subaru Forester once, was wonderful until it had a major
problem that made the engine keep overheating. I forget what it was
exactly, just that it would cost $$$ to fix properly.


We had a Subaru once that my wife liked.

The engine design was in two laterally-opposed halves that would bolt together.

Thing blew the seal between the two halves and never got right again. Total FUBAR of a design.

Judge Napolitano for one--fulsome in his praise of Comey, Mueller and Rosenstein. He and the rest of them can stick their assurances up their asses.

The mafia has a way to handle 'vouch-ers' when the 'vouch-ee' turns out to be an FBI agent. I thought it was because they didn't want to get caught, but maybe they don't want to associate with a low-life lower than themselves.

Wray is now giving assurances regarding how their recruitment from colleges is going well, and you know what colleges are shitting out these days.

Katherine Miller (Buzzfeed political editor, formerly from Free Beacon) replied to an Ed Morrissey tweet about that with these comments:

"One weird thing about that passage: It's totally normal and like SOP to pay for source drinks or dinner; and I could see inviting people to parties. (The... sports events thing is... odd?)

Though, I could also see from the FBI's perspective it's a problem if it were people not authorized to be talking that are going to source drinks."

My bil married a nice woman whom my niece grew very close to. She started smoking pot and bil threw her out. Niece went to school counselor to sort out her feelings about all of this. Suddenly, she is dressing like a boy, testing different boy names, testing different pronouns. Bil takes her to a shrink, thinking he can stop it before it gets out of hand. Within 5 minutes the shrink is saying, "Well, HE is 14, so we need to start the hormones right away" Bil calls BS and walks out. Now mom has outed "Him" on Facebook and niece won't talk to dad anymore.

Of course, in this case, the parents are in favor (or part) of little Johnny's criminal activities, but the next Peter Strzok knows that the PTB aren't going to go after him and will likely cover it all up.

250 It is far past time for a Revolution in America. The blessing of The System is that such a revolution occurs on K-street, with keyboards and microphones, and not on Main Street, with lead and steel.

The ideal of the Republic is that inevitable Revolution occurs on a regular basis, against a more or less predictable mise en scene, and the socio-political tensions the classic Revolution serves to alleviate are handled before reaching the critical point. Much like a "leak-before-break" condition in a pipeline.

But another benefit of the Republic is that, should this mechanism for safe, gradual socio-political change fail, as it is clearly failing now, there is still the buffer zone, the disconnect between The System and The People which allows one final chance at the necessary Revolution without involving the citizens directly. This requires one faction of The System to assume the role and the playbook of the civilian rebel in the setting of the classic Revolution.

I believe we are at this point.

Through corruption and electoral interference, from the general murkiness of accumulated power, The System has failed repeatedly at realigning itself using the canonical mechanisms available. Should they continue to fail at realignment from within by non-canonical means, I believe we will ultimately see violence on Main Street.

My niece has come out as trans. Her mom divorced my bil 10 years ago and
has had an endless parade of men through her life since, making babies
with most of them. My bil married a nice woman whom my niece grew very
close to. She started smoking pot and bil threw her out. Niece went to
school counselor to sort out her feelings about all of this. Suddenly,
she is dressing like a boy, testing different boy names, testing
different pronouns. Bil takes her to a shrink, thinking he can stop it
before it gets out of hand. Within 5 minutes the shrink is saying,
"Well, HE is 14, so we need to start the hormones right away" Bil calls
BS and walks out. Now mom has outed "Him" on Facebook and niece won't
talk to dad anymore.

it's almost like the oligarchs are choosing people that will "misbehave" in office and do favors for them, while making such a mess of the system that it can't function to prosecute the corrupt oligarchs.

But at other levels they install the corrupt dirty cops, and their mobster infiltrators like Lois Lerner or Mueller and of course the Clintons. The Clintons were propelled because they could be bribed and counted on to follow through with the dirty deal.

So here we are ... trying to take on the global mafia that has seized power in Europe and much of our NY/DC bureaucracy.

Sessions made his bones, in part, due to the KKK investigation that many have cited here.

I did some digging.

Quite a body of evidence that Jeff didn't do much on that at all ... other than swoop in and hoover up the credit. Granted - Jeff didn't BLOCK it, but not so sure he did much to push it along.

Like all my digging ... it started with a google of "Sessions Alabama KKK" and went from there.

You'll hit articles from all the sites with a political slant ... Salon, Slate, etc... - but when you start chasing footnotes, it gets interesting.

No - I don't think Jeff Sessions is the Honorable Man that some folks are so emotionally invested in. I think he's an opportunist. Maybe better than most - but that's all.

I'm so tempted to draft a letter to them asking them to actually show some stones. Ask every parishioner at every parish where they stand.

************************************************

The cult accusation is a backhanded compliment. Trump's enemies are acknowledging Trump has a large base of committed supporters. They're frustrated they can't take him out by destroying that.

331 Thanks, votermom. I ought to be happy - I had some nice news yesterday - but I'm not and that story made me sad, realizing that I've isolated myself enough that I don't have any friends who would do that for me.

You ain't the only one. I still haven't finished putting my stuff away and I moved in nearly seven months ago...barely see what friends I have any more. While I admit they helped keep me together after dad died, I have to say that lately I've been feeling a bit like the Leper King.

I do believe it's time for me to make some new friends. Easier said than done, but...

Sounds like it was not just Strzok and Page, Strzok was telling Page about the other group he was working with ... which would be Brennan, Mueller and then Comey, Clapper, McCabe, ...
Indeed, they had a goon squad to "direct" prosecutions for the innocent with "WrongThink" while giving "SpecialHandling" to Hillary so the non-investigator lawyers could wipe (like with a cloth) not just the evidence, but their own footprints in hiding the evidence.

Posted by: @votermom


We bought a 2008 Mazda 5 back in February for $800. It's very clean, but it had a transmission issue.

I fixed the transmission issue myself for less than $500 by replacing the control computer (and two solenoids which apparently weren't the problem). And that was a new part from a dealer, rather than used.

It started the other day with a mass air sensor issue, but I can get a replacement MAS unit for $15 from Ebay, if that turns out to be the culprit.

Granted, that's doing the work myself, but it doesn't seem to be a particularly expensive car to work on.

Yup, that's me!

Time to start eating the neighbors, CB!

What you need to do is make sure you are eating enough meat, specially as you just had surgery.

Aim for a minimum of two pounds, but 4 would probably be better.

Hunger can feel different on a an all-meat diet - instead of stomach pangs you can feel cranky, or tired, etc. Anyway anytime you feel "sub-optimal" - try eating some meat.

You may also find yourself getting lots of carb cravings at first (my kingdom for a potato chip!) - just eat meat until the craving goes away.
good luck!!!

Yes she is. Glorious. The best.

If she can stand it, I'd like her to stay there for the next 6+ years. She manages those whining toddlers about as well as is possible short of bannings.

They don't want it to survive. They're looking ahead to the New World Order where there are no nations, just a mass of people living as serfs, with the self-appointed "elites" controlling every aspect of our lives, because of course we're just too damned stupid and ignorant and raaaaaacist to know what's best for us.

And naturally, what is clearly NOT best for us is any notion of liberty or self-reliance or any of the other ideals upon which the United States was founded.

400 Dems win Congressional baseball game 25-5.

More proof that those bastards are all on the same side.

If I were a GOP congressman who had been nearly killed by a Dem shooter, the only time you would see a bat in my hand is when I walk into Congress to go full Preston Brooks on those assholes.

Does Scalise really think any of his "good friends" on the other side wouldn't have been pleased as punch had he died? The man's a fucking idiot.

401 Hey everyone, did you know that the FIB has a low acceptance rate that exceeds Harvard and Yale??

I wonder what some of the questions on the entrance application are???


Question 1: Would you categorize your principles as..

a. Well thought out and enduring.
b. Scattered and ever changing and evolving

Question 2: Rules should be...

a. Consistent and impartially administered
b. inconsistent and dependent on political biases

Trump has a plan.

Sessions is good - because Trump picked him.

Rosenstein is good - because Trump picked him.

I voted for Trump. I'll vote for Trump again. Hell - the night Trump declared, I argued with Ace and got banned for pressing the issue as to why Trump could win.

But Hell ... I see it. As said - a Cult of Personality. Most people I've ever known invest, personally, in "something". A person, an organization, an activity - something.

For some ... it's Trump. No doubt.

Of course not. The God-Emperor shits all good fun.

But when some start saying ... "Trump-Sessions-Rosenstein are just playing an elaborate Good Cop/Bad Cop game", and my favorite ... "Trump picked Sessions/Rosenstein - they're good".

That's not tongue-in-cheek. They believe it.

414 FenelonSpoke: "NOBODY who voted for Trump thinks he's a Saint."

You know, it's funny. I voted for Trump because SMOD. I thought he was our only chance to break the Uniparty mold, but I held no illusion of him being a perfect Man. No one is, but Trump had an overblown history that spotlit his foibles.

Thing is, he's turning out to be more of a Saint than anyone in politics. The guy is direct, but at least he's honest and at least he's trying. Stylistically uncouth, but that's what it takes to cut through the BS that is the Swamp. And he's looking out for the neglected, ignored, and abused more than pretty much any starched shirt in D.C. He's fighting for the deplored.

So I have no reservations anymore about not having reservations about Trump. He's as good as we are going to get. Saintly? Relative to the Political Class? Damn right, he is.

I apologize for my lack of investigative journalism. The new complex is to be named either the Brawndo Obama Got Electrolytes Center or the Costco We Love You Obama Center. Still a few years in the future. The gay mulatto first has to skim a few hundred million and park them offshore.

422 We are now a Stalinist socialist republic.
Would that we were Romania, 1989.
-------
"And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?... The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if...We didn't love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward."

424 The new model for establishing a dictatorship is through the democratic ballot box. Edagon of Turkey said, "democracy is like a train, you ride it until you get where you want." Venezuela, Nicaragua, and Turkey all went this way. If you control the media you gas light the population, can't beat Santa Clause. Then they install there regime. the MoBros in Egypt did it but moved to fast.
