Trump’s crimes are evident in his accusations, which are reversed in order to tie the hands of one genuinely accusing a criminal of their true crimes. These people have spent their lives lying, know they are lying, and are quite good at it, at least in its effect upon the many or the third of mankind that salutes whatever is in fact sitting atop the flagpole, rather than hoisting what deserves to be saluted because it is worthy of salute, like the U. S. Constitution. Two stories from the first week of Trump’s presidency are related, demonstrating the same cause: The out of left field reassertion that the popular vote for Hillary was so high that it was the result of 3 1/2 million fake or fraudulent voters, and the Spicer attack on the media, with Trump’s statement that the media are the most dishonest of all people. Yea if Hillary and everyone is nice to him, maybe he won’t use his executive powers to indict her, even with some of those “alternate facts.” Trumps method is to tie the hands of his opponent by getting them to take a position such as one cannot question the results of an election, cannot accuse an opponent of election fraud, cannot accuse one of Russian interference, cannot call for the indictment of an opponent, etc.
Trump works his opponent into a position where, for example, the press cannot report that he is not credible if indeed he is not credible, having accused them of an attempt to undermine his credibility. God forbid!, we must say! That anyone would, in speech, undermine his obviously otherwise solid credibility! None are to accuse of voter fraud, threaten indictment, suggest Russian ties, ask for a vote recount, oppose a smooth transition or question and election result-it just ain’t right! Downright un-American!
Use the mirror: National Enquirer reported Hillary’s Russian ties just before the election. Now she is supposed to fear indictment and scream against accusing another of election fraud. Perhaps Trump got wind of the charges in my citizen’s arrest. Tyrants fear accusations rising from every quarter, so much so that they cannot do their job. Indeed he has the executive powers, which is why Trump must be impeached in the House like tonight or tomorrow morning. The Republicans and the agencies may for a time control him, but as we move on, his own fascist platform, the U.S. white fascists, and ole Vlad will have their way with him.
Oddly, contradicting my old CLC position, the intell. community can just sit tight in the crisis and fall back on common sense, rather than allow themselves to be made the instruments of treason. I used to complain that the career service left these more powerful than the elected office holders, because the terms of the latter are limited, while the career intell people have 40 years. Now it seems that and common sense may be what saves us. That is of course because the internet has made voting and the election of civilians to control the military no longer possible as it once was. Before, civilians would walk in as bosses of the career intell. and military, and try to listen to them about intell and military decisions while deciding for themselves what should be done.
The Brazillian Juitsu guy of the famous family Gracie would constrict like a cobra, and escape from his tactics can be impossible. My teacher wraps us up one limb at a time till one is quite stuck! Gracie beat the best wrestler from Michigan State in a fifteen minute tough guy contest, when MMA was young. All the kickboxers and flashy guys were long gone, leaving only Juitsu and Greek wrestling. He did it by wriggling his foot up between the two of them, from the bottom position, and choking the wrestler with his foot while other limbs cancelled one another out. That is the most beautiful match.
