“Welcome to the party, pal!” as John McClane said in Die Hard. The revolution going on in people’s minds continues! In lieu of my usual Transgress With Me items this time around we’ll look at a brilliant piece by Kurt Schlichter.
It took the election of an outsider to America’s presidency to force the masks to drop in the cesspool of corruption that masquerades as the U.S. government. As I remind everyone who’s been telling me I was right about the need for 3rd parties and the criminal nature of the Democrats and Republicans – there is no need to acknowledge me in any way. I wasn’t alone in pointing this out. Just tell others you now feel this way.
The disgusting behavior of America’s bloated rich pigs and corporate fascists following the election of someone who’s not a Made Man in the criminal cabal called Career Politicians has killed the old paradigms. Many on the left are joining me in leaving the Democrats. The right now understands why the left used to trash the FBI and CIA.
Most enjoyably, the fact that master capitalists and robber barons now use their influence for the left instead of the right has made people who used to swoon at the mere thought of “the Free Market” realize that acquiring a fortune does not automatically make someone admirable or noble.
And an old legal hand like Kurt Schlichter is now joining the chorus of voices pointing out that American “justice” depends entirely on money and on which political party your money has bribed. Kurt’s column is brilliant. The link is below but first some excerpts:
“Let’s stop pretending that America in 2018 has a “justice system.” It’s not a justice system. It’s a set of elite institutions that swing the law like a sledgehammer to crush threats to the ruling class’s monopoly on power. You know, threats like the people we elect to represent our interests against the elite. And we are under no moral obligation to pretend it is anything else.”
“… (P)ainful to admit it, but we need to grow up. There are two sets of law in America today, meaning there is no rule of law in America today. Oh, there are statutes, and there are courts, and there are agencies full of people with guns willing to enforce the will of aspiring tyrants, but there is not rule of law. There is only power, theirs and ours.”
“Justice is no longer blind. Her blindfold is off and she’s picking favorites. You are not one of her favorites. You, and those you elect, are not equal under the law to members of the elite.”
“Now we have Robert Mueller and his pack of Democrats – literally including lawyers who represented the Clinton crime syndicate – seeking out a crime, any crime, or any non-crime, that they can use to undo the results of the election. No Russian collusion? Ok, well, then, uh, paying off a couple of extortionist tramps is a…um…hmmmm…a campaign finance violation for some reason who cares TREASON!”
“They are not even pretending now. Imagine, just imagine, if Trump had erased 30,000 emails that were under subpoena. Hillary did, and it’s cool. Andrew McCabe and Comey lied through their teeth to Congress.” Continue reading
