Presented without comment.
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
We have nothing in our pockets
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
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?
