The inevitable end result of our last 56 years


Recommended Posts

It is indeed quite striking and disturbing.  I recently had a short conversation with a friend's son who has been working as a civilian contractor at various middle eastern military bases.  He said that while stationed with the military, their only news outlet (or at least their primary one) is One America News.  He discounts any other source now and says that is the view of most.  Extreme right wing media is definitely taking careful aim at those who could cause the most problem in our society.

Everyone needs to watch this.  January 6th came very close to succeeding.  That was a mindless, wild mob which reminded one  of the last scene of West's Day of the Locust. They literally trampled one of their own. They were hunting for Pence and Pelosi.  One cop saved the day or they would have been inside the senate before it was evacuated.  And the National Guard was late by three hours.  Michael Wolff, Greenwald and Johnstone should all be ashamed of themselves for what they have written.  This is sickening.

I hate to say it, but this could be the tip of a domestic terrorism iceberg in the U.S.  And a lot of these guys have sophisticated military training.

Oklahoma City comes to mind.

As I recall, the FBI arrested a guy in the Coast Guard a year or two ago who was planning to carry out some sort of false flag type bomb attacks that would be blamed on leftists.

The Times might as well tack the committee room scene from The Parallax View onto the end of this video, as nothing will be done.

All this over a president who, to anyone with roots in the area spreading from metropolitan New York to Atlantic City, is well known as a cheat and a fraud.  Guess it didn't catch on in the America where satellite dishes carried the TV show in which he was portrayed as the lawgiver of a fake meritocracy that in the real world would exclude almost all of his audience.

Inspirational verse @37:24 in the video: "Your mother's a fat whore!"  Worthy of Patrick Henry, to be certain.

Come senators, congressmen
Please heed the call
Don’t stand in the doorway
Don’t block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled
There’s a battle outside and it is ragin’
It’ll soon shake your windows and rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin’

That's astonishing. The first such tests since 1987. But why? And why so close to shore?

Here's a link that works...

I hadn't seen a lot of this film before watching the full 40 minute NYT documentary last night.

The vitriol, violence, and sheer delusionality of the Trump mob on January 6th is truly shocking.

I'm, admittedly, a partisan hack, but my belief after watching this stuff is that Donald Trump, Alex Jones, and other key perpetrators of the attack on Congress, (or should I say, "perpe-traitors?") should be hanged on the front steps of the Capitol.

 Ali Alexander I think is key.

 

      Alexander was, obviously, a key player in the insurrection, but I also wonder about the role of Donald Trump, himself, and associates like Roger Stone.

     We know that Stone was filmed with Oath Keepers in combat gear on January 6th, and that he was the mastermind of the "Brooks Brothers Riot" in Dade County, Florida in 2000 that aggressively disrupted the re-count in Bush v. Gore.

     We also know that Trump's favorite flying monkey at the Pentagon, Chris Miller, repeatedly stalled the deployment of National Guard troops to the Capitol on January 6th.  It's hard to believe that Miller wasn't acting on orders from Trump, himself.
