Fish. Barrel. You Know The Drill.



By now there should be a subscription service that will look up 2016 Don the Con and his stooges saying or doing the exact opposite of what 2017 Don the Con and his stooges say and do.

From the first Presidential Debate, September 25, 2016...
TRUMP: That was more than a mistake. That was done purposely. OK? That was not a mistake. That was done purposely. When you have your staff taking the Fifth Amendment, taking the Fifth so they’re not prosecuted, when you have the man that set up the illegal server taking the Fifth, I think it’s disgraceful. And believe me, this country thinks it’s — really thinks it’s disgraceful, also.
And this...
“So there are five of them taking the Fifth Amendment, like you see on the mob, right?” he said at another rally in Iowa, though it was three former Clinton staff members who pleaded the Fifth. “The mob takes the Fifth Amendment. If you’re innocent, why are you taking the Fifth Amendment?”
And of course...

Eight months later...

The Latest: AP Source says Flynn will invoke Fifth Amendment

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Latest on ongoing investigations into Russia’s alleged interference with the U.S. election (all times local):

9:30 a.m.

Former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn will invoke his Fifth Amendment protection against self-incrimination on Monday as he notifies the Senate Intelligence committee that he will not comply with a subpoena seeking documents.

That’s according to a person with direct knowledge of the matter. The person spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the private interactions between Flynn and the committee.

Flynn’s decision comes less than two weeks after the committee issued a subpoena for Flynn’s documents as part of the panel’s investigation into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election...
I cannot emphasize enough how little your Crazy Uncle Liberty is hearing about any of this.  To him -- and tens of millions like him -- this is just more snowflake, Libtard fake news, happening far, far away and intended by the Leftist News Conspiracy to distract him from the only real story story in his airless, lightless little world.

The Pig People in their Fury Bunkers (Lol) will never hear the truth because we know for a fact that they're fed lies upon lies upon lies, plus heaping helpings of hype and spin 24/7/365 from Fox/Hate Radio/"Christiany" Broadcasting. And we know that in the "Heartland" that's mostly all that's made available to them.

It's been proven a hopeless cause to attempt to "reach" them. We need to focus on the percentage of citizenry who voted for Trump this time, but who have, in the past, voted for Obama or other Democratic candidates.

The Pig People are beyond any sort of redemption.

I have concluded that we are in the traditional cycle of history here.
Thus 2016 was history as tragedy.
And 2017 is history as farce...

Over the last 37 years when looking at the history of our presidents, their policies, along with the division and apathy sown into the electorate by some of our morally bankrupt politicians and their media enablers, we seem to have found ourselves with brief moments of sanity stuck firmly in a sea of stupid.

@Scurra Yes, 2016 was tragic and in many ways its despair at times had no bottom. However, I believe that 2017 is shaping up to be a possible event horizon whereby we all eventually get sucked in.
