Fascism is on the March all Over the Globe, and America is no Exception

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

RIP, George Herbert Walker Bush. – I was awake in the middle of the night when I heard about the passing at the age of 94 of former President George H.W. Bush, just eight months after the death of former First Lady Barbara Bush. I laid awake thinking of what to say about it all. I didn’t agree with him about some things, did agree with him about others, but let’s just leave the politics to others, because I’m not going to say anything negative about such a gracious man who was an institution in my favorite city of Houston, and served his country with honor and valor in World War II.

I literally ran into President Bush and the First Lady at a reception at the Johnson Space Center in Pasadena 26 years ago, and almost got arrested for it. I was walking along talking with a couple of friends, not looking where I was headed when the Bush’s suddenly emerged from the gift shop and I bumped right into him. A couple of Secret Service guys properly rushed in and started walking me and my friends away, but the President just laughed, called them off, and then – as was typical of Mr. Bush – spent about five minutes chatting us up before the agents convinced him to move along.

We’ll hear hundreds of stories like this over the next several days – seems like half the residents of Houston have a story like it to tell – because that was who this particular President was in his personal life. In the end, regardless of what anyone thinks about how he went about it, he leaves behind a lifetime of service to his country, in the process compiling a resume as impressive as anyone in our nation’s history, and that is something to respect and admire.

Rest in Peace, Poppy.  You deserve it.

NPR jumps headlong into the newsfaking business. – Ok, NPR was already there to some extent, but this week they showed they’re serious about it. The news fakers over there smeared Donald Trump, Jr. on Friday, running with a fake story and then refusing to properly retract it and issue a real correction.

The story, published early Friday morning, falsely alleged Trump Jr.’s testimony before congress about a short-lived plan to build a Trump Tower in Moscow several years before the 2016 elections conflicted with that of Michael Cohen, who plead guilty for lying to congress over the matter earlier in the week. But a reading of the transcript of that committee hearing – a transcript that NPR itself was quoting from – very quickly and easily showed that Trump Jr. had said nothing at all that was in any way untrue.

NPR let the story linger out there in the ether of the Internet for five long hours until, late on a Friday afternoon, after all the other fake news media outlets had had a chance to roll it into fake stories of their own, they finally issued a semi-correction, but left the original piece still sitting out there basically unchanged. This is despicable, inexcusable behavior, something we’d expect from CNN or the New York Times.

Apparently, that’s where the people in charge want to take NPR. What a sad day.

This is what creeping fascism looks like. – In the second week of December, representatives from all over the world will meet in Marrakesh to approve and commit their countries to something called the “International Compact on Migration.” As you can see from watching the video below, the goal of the compact will be to make criticism of mass migration…wait for it… a HATE CRIME punishable with prison time:

As the writer notes, the U.S. will not have anyone in Marrakesh thanks to President Donald Trump, and will not become a party to this fascist compact. But Canada will, and you can bet most of the fading European semi-democracies will be there as well. These international compacts are not binding, but their provisions do end up working their ways into the laws of the signatory nations like cockroaches eating their way into your kitchen baseboards.

Here’s the lesson: If the 2016 election had gone the other way, President Pantsuit Princess would have her emissary there under orders to be the first signatory to this completely anti-democracy compact.

Frightening indeed.

Here’s what a headlong rush into fascism looks like. – But hey, if you want to see fascism already in full force here in the United States, here you go:

The rest of your fake news media studiously ignored this huge story, which should not surprise anyone, since the whistleblower in question was in possession of documents damaging to the Pantsuit Princess and Special Counsel Robert Mueller. The documents in question relate to the Uranium One scandal, in which both Mueller and the Fainting Felon were heavily involved, and to the Clinton Foundation.

The whistleblower, a poor schlub named Dennis Cain, had done his duty to the country, turning the documents over to a congressional committee investigating both matters. He was assured by both the committee and by DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz that he was doing so under the auspices of the Intelligence Community Whistleblower Protection Act. After his client delivered the documents to Horowitz, Cain’s lawyer says he was assured by Horowitz that an assistant would hand-carry them over to the congressional committee.

The FBI agents who showed up at Cain’s home allegedly told him he was in possession of “stolen government property”, and, after Cain had turned the documents and his personal computer over to them, spent another six hours ransacking Cain’s home. This is Gestapo behavior.

The lesson here? These whistleblower protection laws mean nothing if you’re blowing the whistle on someone named Clinton or Mueller.

Hey, what the hell is Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker doing in his new job, anyway?

That is all.

    Yeah, what sbout it Whitaker? Is this info uncovered by Mr Cain going to disappear before our very eyes? Cain will probably end up in the fed pen for the rest of his life to discourage other patriots from blowing the whistle on government fraud.

    With reference to NPR, nothing unusual. The media pretty much has turned the corner, anything bad about Trump is good, anything good about Trump is bad.
    This is newspeak, right out of George Orwell’s dystopian novel, “1984”.
    About George HW Bush. I appreciate your characterization.
    About the whistleblower’s home being raided. It seems this was all legal, search warrant an all.
    It seems to be getting to be a routine.

    I have been saying for some time that there is no justice in America as long as Clinton and Obama et.al. walk free. I am beginning to believe we are doomed as a free nation. I’m fed up with the entire situation. Are we going to have to go to Civil War 2.0 to save ourselves?

    This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or exercise their revolutionary right to overthrow it.

    Not to be macabre – but Pres. George HW Bush was very lucky actually, and history would have been much different, if he hadn’t been rescued by the submarine USS Finback when he was shot down in World War II. The other eight airmen in the other planes of his flight swam to shore, were captured by the Japanese, and parts of them were eaten by Japanese officers. This was revealed only a few years ago in the book Flyboys.

    I only mention this because there are still those who question whether we should have dropped the bomb, etc. We cannot judge that decision – the people who lived through that war knew how ruthless the Japanese were at that time – it was their culture that if you were caught or surrendered you had lost all honor. It’s just how it was. it was total war.

    We should mourn President Bush and all who served in that terrible war.
