Nothing can come between us
Nothing gets you down
Nothing strikes your fancy
Nothing turns you on
Somebody is waiting in the hallway
Somebody is falling down the stairs
Set someone free, break someone’s heart
Stand up help us out

Ev’rything is divided
Nothing is complete
Ev’rything looks impressive
Do not be deceived
You don’t have to wait for more instructions
No one makes a monkey out of me
We lie on our backs, feet in the air
Rest and relaxation, rocket to my brain

Snap into position
Bounce till you ache
Step out of line
And you end up in jail
Bring me a doctor
I have a hole in my head
But they are just people
And I’m not afraid
Doctor Doctor
We have nothing in our pockets
We continue
But we have nothing left to offer
Faces pressed against the window
Hey! they are just my friends
Check this out don’t be slick
Break our backs it goes like this . . .

We are born without eyesight
We are born without sin
And our mama protects us
From the cold and the rain
We’re in no hurry
sugar and spice
We sing in the darkness
We poen our eyes (open up)

I can’t believe it
And people are strange
Our president’s crazy
Did you hear what he said
Business and pleasure
Lie right to your face
Divide it in sections
And then give it away

There are no big secrets
Don’t believe what you read
We have great big bodies
We got great big heads
Run-a-run-a-run it all together
Check it out – still don’t make no sense
Makin’ flippy floppy
Tryin to do my best
Lock the door
We kill the beast
Kill it!

I think we’ve reached the moment that we all need to hang onto ourselves, because it’s all coming apart in Washington, DC for both parties.  First, Donna Brazile has made an already-awful year for Hillary Clinton so much worse.  Up to you how much credibility Brazile deserves.  I don’t think she should be given a pass for complaining about Clinton’s control of the DNC when Brazile, as an officer of the DNC, abused her position as a CNN contributer to feed her campaign with debate questions during the primary, presumably to give Clinton an advantage.

Yet, I can’t help but be amazed to read this:

Brazile writes that she was haunted by the still-unsolved murder of DNC data staffer Seth Rich and feared for her own life, shutting the blinds to her office window so snipers could not see her and installing surveillance cameras at her home. She wonders whether Russians had placed a listening device in plants in the DNC executive suite.

At first, Brazile writes of the hacking, top Democratic officials were “encouraging us not to talk about it.” But she says a wake-up moment came when she visited the White House in August 2016, for President Obama’s 55th birthday party. National security adviser Susan E. Rice and former attorney general Eric Holder separately pulled her aside to urge her to take the Russian hacking seriously, which she did, she writes.

I haven’t read the book, though I am thinking of adding it to my queue.  I’ve been trying to find something online with the Seth Rich excerpt.  Notably, I do not consider myself to be a “Seth Rich Truther” or whatever you want to call it.  Yes, I agree that his unsolved murder is very suspicious.  I know that Assagne has been sort-of-saying-without-saying that Rich was the leaker who supplied Wikileaks with the DNC emails and was murdered for it.  I’ve also read the email in which John Podesta suggested that the Clinton campaign should make an example out a leaker.

It’s all circumstantial and I’ve wanted to see something more before jumping on board the Rich Train to Conspiracy Town.  Well, Brazile worrying about getting killed because Seth Rich got murdered makes me wonder.  As far as anyone knows, it was just a robbery that went wrong, wasn’t it?  Why was she worried about somebody coming after her?  And why did Holder and Rice feel that it was so important to make sure that a DNC officer accepted the validity that the Russians did it?  It’s bothersome, it’s all I’m saying for now.

That’s not to say it’s all nothing but flowers for Trump and the Republicans.  There might be four, might be seven indictments ticking away in the can from Mueller’s investigation (though I’d be amazed if one isn’t for Tony Podesta).  And AG Sessions has lots of s’plainin’ to do.

Whatever you do, just stay focused on all of the Trump/Russia and Clinton/DNC scandals.  It’s the only thing keeping you from noticing that we are on the precipice of World War Three.  There are more US carrier groups in theatre near North Korea than there have ever been.  If this is a bluff, it’s a convincing one.  Of course, if it’s preparation for a war, it’s not enough either.  Oh, and China has been practicing blowing up Guam.

Then there’s Iran’s Houthi’s firing a missile at Riyadh.

Regarding New York City, political correctness may prove to be a greater killer than Radical Islam.

Back to things that aren’t horrifying.

Here’s Stefan Molyneux in a discussion about Lord of the Rings parallels with the Real World.

The JFK files remind us that MLK wasn’t a saint.  His adulterous affairs are already well-known.  I don’t think that any of this should detract from his legacy, even if it were proven true and not just a lot of innuendo.

How do you feel about this?  What does it mean?  Is it explicit white supremacy, a reasonable response to diversity politics (white adequacy?), or more Russian trolling?

I enjoyed this article by JB White on the failure of identity politics (no pun in the name).

What else is going on, as we wait for more indictments of Washington power players and for Kim Jong Un to either blink or roll the dice on the apocalypse?

  1. What is going on in Saudi Arabia?

    EXACTLY what I was going to ask. The church shooting and possible Flynn indictment are grabbing the headlines, but I think this is the most significant thing going on in the world at the moment.

  2. There’s plenty to read in unsavory sites like the nyt and Bloomberg about the young prince cracking down in Saudi Arabia. It’s a move to the left and a top down attempt at reformation of the religion. This is the prince that guaranteed women can drive, has scheduled imams to speak publicly about tolerance of other religions and has been arresting conservative clerics that are critical of him and his message.

    Allaweed’s arrest may be personal, but the paradise papers just got released and I’d bet my left nut that he’s in there with the corrupt billionaires that the republicans coddle.

    There’s also plenty to talk about with the republican tax bill. Not only does it violate the Byrd rule, it’s also about to hit “y’all” the hardest. I’ll let you read through it yourself, but it’s pretty brutal to anyone in the under 100k tax bracket. What it gives you this year, it’s taking back as early as next.

    Trump is repaying your loyalty by giving your money to me!

  3. JDPS is a friend and a good man. I’m not out to prove him wrong so much as convince him that Trump isn’t the worst problem DC has.

  4. We’re just spitballing politics thrill. I don’t pay that kinda stuff no never mind my dude. 🙂

    People can say whatever they want about me. I have nothing to prove to anyone.

  5. So it appears that the Democrat’s line on all of this additional info that’s come out about the Clinton’s breaking the law is, “She didn’t win. She’s not running for office anymore, so we should let it go.” I’ve heard that from a number of liberal pundits and politicians on various shows and articles over the last several days.

    I’m going to try that the next time I get pulled over for a traffic infraction. “But officer, I’m not running for office. You should let me off with a warning.”

  6. Some interesting results in this off year election year.

    Northam wins in Virginia. Is this a sign of things to come? Virginia has become increasingly purple over the years, the economy there has been doing well under McCauliffe, and Gillespie may have been overconfident following that horrendous truck driver ad. And Phil Murphy has won in NJ where the Beached Whale is extremely unpopular. Bad news for Republicans, or just establishment ones going into 2018?

  7. So it appears that the Democrat’s line on all of this additional info that’s come out about the Clinton’s breaking the law is, “She didn’t win. She’s not running for office anymore, so we should let it go.”

    I’m all for leaving her alone, but she won’t go away. She’s still claiming that the 2016 election was fraudulently stolen from her and her party is trying to impeach the winner. If not for that, I’d be perfectly fine with Trump pardoning her for anything and everything.

    As it stands? Impossible.

  8. Northam wins in Virginia. Is this a sign of things to come?

    I’d say so, as far as VA is concerned. With the bloated federal government’s employees all settling in NoVA, they seem to have basically flipped the state.

    Bad news for Republicans, or just establishment ones going into 2018?

    It’s too soon to tell. When the Democrats lose special elections, they call it good news. When they win a governorship in a state that went for Clinton just a year ago, they call it good news.

    The GOP’s fate in Congress depends entirely on if it decides to start passing the agenda it was elected to pass.

  9. As discussed on this old thread, the Air Force Academy racism incident was…a hoax.

    http://www.thedenverchannel.com/news/local-news/air-force-academy-prep-school-black-cadet-admitted-to-writing-racist-remarks-on-dorm-doors

    One of the black cadets allegedly targeted by racial slurs scrawled on a whiteboard at the Air Force Academy Preparatory School was responsible for the incident, Air Force Academy officials announced Tuesday.

    Officials say the cadet admitted to writing the messages on the whiteboard outside the dorm rooms of five black cadet candidates. The cadet is no longer at the school, but a spokesman declined to say whether the student withdrew or was expelled.

    The student’s name wasn’t released.

    Thankfully, the Academy didn’t go completely stupid over a hoax the way Mizzou did.
