That would be “never”, right?
You’d think I’d killed a cat on national television yesterday with my article on where Trump sits right now in regard to Flynn’s guilty plea. The claims of incipient (in other words, “you’re guilty even though you haven’t done it yet”) bad faith on my part, including “wow, man, I’m gonna archive this post before you change it” crap on Twatter, never mind the hate-email, rivaled that which I got back when I started the series on Obama and his little document forgery exercise.
Never mind more than 10 years of reporting on political sleaze in this country on both sides of the aisle. I call ’em like I see ’em, and who gets pissed off about that doesn’t bother me in the least.
Here’s the real issue and why it’s barely worth the time to write on anything any more. Despite utterly irrefutable evidence, as it’s been admitted, that Hillary not only broke the law when it comes to classified information our government has, in prison right now, people it has jailed for doing far less than she did, some of whom were active service members that never let any of the information travel beyond their personal devices (unlike Hillary who both did and intended to — cough-Huma-cough-cough), despite clear evidence and admissions that our own FBI and BATFE intentionally ran guns into the Mexico, including weapons that were then used to murder a border agent, despite proof that Herr Clinton sold targeting technology to the ****ing Chinese in exchange for illegal campaign contributions in the 1990s while knowing at the time that the Chinese had stolen an advanced nuclear warhead design from us not one economic or political retributive action was taken in response and in fact hundreds of billions a year in trade deficit has continued to accumulate since under every single Administration and Congress forward, both Republican and Democrat.
The fact of the matter is that irrespective of any of this there has not been one response by anyone in the American public that is not partisan horse****.
There has been no concerted economic effort (legal, I remind you) to demand that this crap stop instantly under pain of economic and political destruction.
There has not been one concerted economic effort (legal, I remind you) to demand and enforce over the last two election cycles that those “big three megacap silly valley enterprise” (that would be Google, Facebook and Twitter) which in the last election cycle had their employees display a 96.7% to 98.9% preference in campaign contributions for Hillary Clinton stop censoring fully half of the opinion in this nation or they will be legally and economically destroyed by said censored half through targeting every single one of their advertisers and other economic partners they rely on to remain in business, never mind their employees and families who made those political contributions. Every single one of these individuals and firms are fair game legally, economically and socially when they abuse their political preference and amplify same through corporate visages either as owners or employees to silence dissenting voices.
Instead the attack any time someone points out that yes, sleaze and tolerance of same crosses the aisle (like, for example, the 1995 “Abuse your Sexatary Act”) and is damned near unitary in our Government is directed at the person who points out same by those same partisan hacks who remain silent when their own side does the same ****ing thing.
