The State of a Nation

Wait, wait and tremble, yet mad masters, this barbarism, this infamy you practice upon us , and with which you regale yourselves presently, will not go unanswered, unavenged, forever! The whirlwind gathers, before which you must fly like chaff.

I thought of that quote the other day when I saw the following Tweet from Michael Hayden, former US Air Force 4-star General, former Director of the NSA (National Security Agency), former Director of the CIA – and a man who allowed his NSA to wiretap US citizens without warrants.

In case you’re not aware, this latest insanity arises from “leaks” out of the FBI and DOJ about “nuclear” secrets being among the classified materials held at President Trump’s home in Florida – as if the National Security agencies would sit on their butts for eighteen months were that true, among other farcical aspects of this situation.

As Leftist Matt Taibbi points out in his great article, Welcome to the Third World, this is all exactly what happened before:

Most will see this as a war between Trump and the Washington D.C. bureaucracies (plus their handmaidens in the Democrat and Republican Parties). But it is actually a war between the gentry classes of the USA and everybody else, it has been escalating since the Great Financial Crisis (GFC) of 2008, it is being fought on multiple battlefields and its end is not yet in sight.

All this nonsense about Trump is not intended to be serious in terms of charges and convictions. The idea is simply to kneecap, once and for all, the dreaded Orange Hitler, from being elected President again in 2024. As just one example of the double standards that have to be applied in order to achieve this outcome, take another stroll down memory lane (warning: lofi hip hop included)

You can also enjoy the following as an example of people who never learn.

The quote given at the start of this post is from Ethel Rosenberg as she sat in prison awaiting death by electric chair. It must be noted that the National Security State prevailed in her case, simply because there were not enough communists in the USA to provide a whirlwind.

I don’t think the same can be said about 75 million Trump voters and if the Republican Party is stupid enough to gather up their votes to take Congress and then do nothing about this situation then they too will become like chaff that flies.

  1. I’ve thought all along the raid was all about protecting senior FBI officials who perjured themselves in aid of the Trump/Russia hoax. Turns out I was right.

    • I think it’s more just this crowd losing their minds. Look at these two Tweets from Democrats after years of the US Left hating on the Cheney’s as Satan.

      The first guy was the National Finance Chair of Draft Biden 2016. The second is the current Associate Editor of the Washington Post.

      This is where “Moderate Right Wingers” still get their information from.

      These people are seriously deluded, although I do have to laugh at the stick they’re getting from Old Timey Cheny Haters on the Left.

      Booting Liz Cheney is one of the ways that the Republican Party will actually recover by putting the people of Wyoming well ahead over her Trump obsession – and also not throwing in with the destructive actions of the Democrats that have so harmed America, which she did.

      I loved this quote from Capehart where he acknowledges the insanity of his movie comparison in this context:

      Now, I realize that Cheney’s father, former vice president Dick Cheney, has traditionally been known as Darth Vader, what with the Iraq War and “enhanced interrogation” techniques and all that. But work with me, people.

      That last is usually a term that’s used as self-deprecating humour, but I sense that Capehart is using it entirely seriously.

  2. Historian Victor Davis Hanson:

    Well, they’re afraid in the short term,” he said, in reference to the Democrats and the left, “but in the long term they believe they’re morally superior to America, and therefore any means necessary or justifiable for their morally superior ends.”

    “And right now, we don’t have the rule of law in Washington,” said Hanson. “Whether you’re targeted or exempt depends on your ideology.”…

    “Now we go after a president and go to his house with 30 agents,” said Hanson. “In the past, when a high official was called for a congressional subpoena, Eric Holder just said, ‘I’m not going and I’m not turning over any of this fast and furious.’”

    “The idea that you would put him in shackles or you confront him with his family and grab his phone is just ridiculous,” said Hanson. “But this is what we’re doing on an ideological basis.”

    “And when you start to do that, you don’t have a democracy anymore,” he added. “And I don’t think we do.”…
