Roger Stone invoked his 5th amendment rights, rather than testify in a deposition involving January 6th Committee. It’s the first time that I can remember Mr. Stone doing something that is in some way commendable. That it is his right not to be forced to give testimony against himself, that could incriminate him in a crime. This is the way it’s done. You don’t hide in your lawyer’s office or in a hotel room, mumbling about executive privilege. You put on your big boy pants, go down to the courthouse and tell them, “I refuse to testify on grounds of self-incrimination.”
You are telling the world that you are guilty of criminal actions. But the only way you can ever be convicted of those actions is by opening your own big fat yap. Unless of course, someone else down the road a piece, decides to get talkative. Then at least, by saying nothing, perjury is off the table. But by Stone taking the Fifth, he is defusing the light around him onto his subordinates. Yes, there was a crime committed because I refuse to testify about it. No, I won’t tell you about it, because if I do, I will go to jail. Instead, just go ahead and investigate everyone around me, and see if you can figure it out.
I think that it is commendable; this is the way it’s supposed to work. None of this, somebody stole my cell phone or that’s not my briefcase nonsense. Stone is in an enviable position of not caring what public opinion thinks. And since he works for the Fascist Party, he has no concern what the Twump-a-lumps will think either. They don’t care, Stone could burn down orphanages or shoot BB guns at day care centers. Fascism is about results, not methods.
The crowd cheered when Stone was pardoned by Twump. “Yeah, for our side! We won!” Stone was a convicted criminal, but Twump gave him a Presidential pardon. It doesn’t change the fact, that Stone is still a convicted criminal. If Stone applied for a job at Taco Bell and the application asked, “Have you ever been convicted of a felony?” Stone would still have to answer “yes” or miss out on an amazing employment opportunity. Then he would have to go to the line at the bottom of the application that says, “Explain the nature of your conviction.”
Kenosha Killer Kyle is making the rounds speaking to Conservative groups. Mama’s milking that cow before the tits get cold. My rarely used psychic ability tells me, there will be a breakup between mom and son in this upcoming year. More cinematic than psychic, as the plot is always the same. Two poor grifters stumble on to a gold mine and become rich. It’s only a matter of time before someone asks themselves, “Why do I have to split all this money with her? She doesn’t like my new girlfriend Charlene, because she dances at a gentlemen’s club, out by the airport.”
He’s, their hero; he killed people and got away with it! Yeah, for our side! It’s all right that he killed people, because they were Liberals. God bless the Second Amendment! We won! Hooray for our side! Kenosha Killer Kyle will use his celebrity to make bank. The Fascist Party will use Kyle to make bank. Mama will use Kenosha Killer Kyle to make bank. How can I say that you ask? This is a woman who not only let her teenage son attend a riot, but she also gave him a ride. Check out that life insurance policy for a double indemnity clause.
My mother always demanded a phone number and the name of someone’s mother, before she would drop me off at a sleepover. “Be good! Don’t shoot anyone, who’s not asking for it!” I’ve seen similar stories before of parents who would drop their despicable little monsters off at a snake pit. If only to buy a few moments of peace and sanity for themselves. The cure for bad parenting is just a couple of Interstate exits away. Eric Cartman in his policeman uniform wants a new gun for Christmas! And if he doesn’t get it, boy, will you be sorry!
Donald Twump famously said; “That only guilty people take the Fifth Amendment.” And he’s right about that. The broken clock rule stands validated, yet again. But what has changed is that they don’t care anymore about law or integrity. Stone takes the fifth, heaping scorn on the committee. “Eat shit, fuck you, yeah, I’m guilty, what are you going to do about it?” There is no right or wrong anymore, they are just outdated concepts now. There is only our side or defeat.
Rick Perry in his now famous text, describes taking power unilaterally, to disqualify electors they disapprove of and appoint new electors more favorable to the cause. That’s not a power written into the Constitution. But Perry had a reach around strategy. Ball up the election in Congress and then, throw it into the laps of the Extreme Court.
Isn’t that interesting? Another place to find common ground among us. I also think the Conservative majority on the Extreme Court are a bunch unscrupulous partisan hacks. Rick Perry had no doubts, that after murdering democracy on the steps of the forum, the Extreme Court would rubber stamp its murder as, approved! But just this once!
Rick Perry is no lunatic Joe Six Pack or Alex Jones crazy shooting from the hip about crazy insane potential conspiracy theories. He is a Washington government insider. If Rick Perry says the court would go along with the crime, I believe him. There isn’t even a question in Perry’s mind about how this court would rule. Fascism is about results not methods, to kindle fires and spread good government about with guns and flames.
“It is high time for me to put an end to your sitting in this place, which you have dishonored by your contempt of all virtue, and defiled by your practice of every vice; ye are a factious crew, and enemies to all good government; ye are a pack of mercenary wretches, and would like Esau sell your country for a mess of pottage, and like Judas betray your God for a few pieces of money.
Is there a single virtue now remaining amongst you? Is there one vice you do not possess? Ye have no more religion than my horse; gold is your God; which of you have not barter’d your conscience for bribes? Is there a man amongst you that has the least care for the good of the Commonwealth?
Ye sordid prostitutes have you not defil’d this sacred place, and turn’d the Lord’s temple into a den of thieves, by your immoral principles and wicked practices? Ye are grown intolerably odious to the whole nation; you were deputed here by the people to get grievances redress’d, are yourselves gone! So! Take away that shining bauble there, and lock up the doors.
In the name of God, go!
