On The Eve Of The Spectacle

by William Skink

I’m not a big user of the Twitter, but when I tweet I do appreciate how the character limitation forces one to be as succinct as possible.

The following are two statements I composed on that obnoxious platform yesterday. On the eve of the public spectacle about to be forced down our collective throats tomorrow, maybe it’s worth considering:

1. People need to start wrapping their heads around the idea that Trump committed impeachable offenses AND members of the permanent state committed criminal acts to reverse the results of the 2016 election.

2. Having to choose between a corrupt President or a corrupt deep state is a sure path to civil unrest. Understanding that both are deeply corrupt and unworthy of support is the path to public empowerment.

The kayfabe Congressional pony show won’t get this country any closer to the real reasons why Donald Trump is unfit for office, nor will it stop the parallel push to uncover the possibly criminal origins of Russiagate.

It WILL be hungrily consumed to the exclusion of nearly everything else, like the coup the resignation of Evo Morales in Bolivia.

When one understands the extent of corruption around the globe, one can see how transnational corporations and narco-states engage in organized criminal activity at the highest levels.

What state/corporate media in the US won’t tell you about Bolivia is that its incredibly rich in Lithium deposits, and wouldn’t you know it, earlier this month, Morales cancelled a Lithium deal:

The Morales move on Nov. 4 to cancel the December 2018 agreement with Germany’s ACI Systems Alemania (ACISA) came after weeks of protests from residents of the Potosí area. The region has 50% to 70% of the world’s lithium reserves in the Salar de Uyuni salt flats.

Among other clients, ACISA provides batteries to Tesla; Tesla’s stock rose Monday after the weekend.

Yeah, nothing to see here. IMPEACHMENT! IMPEACHMENT!!!

But don’t impeach Trump for sending US troops to the Syrian oil fields, setting the stage for an explicit transnational corporate raping of Syria’s natural resources.

And don’t impeach Trump for rewarding Acosta with a Cabinet position after Acosta gave Trump’s (And Bill Clinton’s) pedo-pal, Epstein, a sweet heart deal for sexual assaulting underage girls.

Raping and destroying countries is no different than raping and destroying the lives of young, often poor girls hired to give massages at Mar-a-Lago. Trump can be credibly accused of both, but that’s not why impeachment hearings are beginning tomorrow.

What, you don’t remember the sudden cancellation of the woman who claimed Trump raped her when she was 13? This is from the Guardian, and the date of the piece is important–Thursday, November 3rd, 2016:

A woman who is suing Donald Trump for allegedly raping her as a child abandoned a plan to speak publicly on Wednesday, citing death threats.

The woman, known by the pseudonym Jane Doe, hid from media who were invited to her lawyer’s Los Angeles office for a press conference in which she was expected to reveal her identity.

Instead, her attorney, Lisa Bloom, cancelled the event in a brief, apologetic statement to a phalanx of cameras.

“Jane Doe has received numerous threats today as have all the Trump accusers that I have represented. She has decided she is too afraid to show her face. She has been here all day, ready to do it, but unfortunately she is in terrible fear. We’re going to have to reschedule. I apologize to all of you who came. I have nothing further.”

Hours earlier Bloom, a prominent attorney, stoked such anticipation with the announced press conference that her firm’s website crashed. With just six days to the election and polls showing a tightening race the stakes could scarcely be higher.

For anyone who has looked into how these allegations connect to Jeffrey Epstein, the idea that it was “anticipation” that crashed the firm’s website is absurd. It was a major denial of service attack.

But going down that rabbit hole is such a bummer. No, grab the popcorn and get ready for IMPEACHMENT!!!

If you’re looking for a different kind of analysis on what’s wrong, this post, titled Now That We’ve Incentivized Sociopaths–Guess What Happens Next from Charles Smith at Of Two Minds is worth checking out. Here’s a taste:

If the system incentivizes conscience-free sociopaths more than it incentivizes those creating real value, the system will eventually fall into the equivalent of Gresham’s law (“bad money drives out good money”): the con-men and fraudsters will drive out entrepreneurs with a conscience who create real value for customers, investors and society at large.

Enjoy your Congressional hearings tomorrow everyone!
