ANOTHER REMINDER THAT YOU CAN ALWAYS GET TOMORROW’S NEWS HERE FIRST

Because human nature is really not hard to predict. From NBC news tonight regarding the toppling of U.S. Grant’s statue in San Francisco:

Demonstrators Topple Statues in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park

…as predicted by me, three years ago.

(In other news, they got Cervantes, too. He was a former slave, but to Muslims, so that doesn’t count in a country where the majority of the population believes the United States invented slavery.)

Hey, Eddie. Before I leave this alone for a while….Remind ’em where we are now and just which road we’re on:

THE ONLY NEWS THAT MATTERS…

Barrack Obama’s Inspector General, Michael Horowitz (retained by the Trump Administration), is releasing a mammoth report today. It’s been anticipated for months and culminates a year-and-a-half long investigation of something or other (I think it was originally supposed to be about Hilary Clinton’s emails but I wouldn’t swear that’s still the case).

Whatever else it says, here’s the first tidbit from the initial news reports–and it’s all that matters.

From the Page-Strzock Files:

Lisa Page: “(Trump’s) not ever going to become president, right? Right?!”

Peter Strzok: “No. No he’s not. We’ll stop it.”

By “we” Strzok meant the FBI, where both he and Page were high-ranking officials during the 2016 election cycle. You can Google their names if you haven’t been following along and want to know more.

Meanwhile, at least we know who was really trying to rig the 2016 election.

Perhaps we can take cold comfort in discovering, at last, their startling degree of incompetence.

And don’t worry. Page (resigned) and Strzok (demoted) are gone. But the people who took their place (think Team Mueller) are no brighter and no more principled.

The message, as always, is that Donald Trump is opposed by a Clown Show: They clown. He laughs.

Though, I admit, this is almost as funny as it is frightening in a banality-of-evil sort of way:

There, I just saved ya’ll the trouble of attending that endless IG report everybody’s been breathlessly awaiting for a year….or, worse, having to listen to the news.

So take it Eddie….Please, God, take it:

INTERESTING TIMES…

No really. Here’s the latest column from Alfred McCoy, author of The Politics of Heroin in Southeast Asia, the definitive book on CIA involvement in drug smuggling across the years and the miles. (I recommend the original edition: the update, titled The Politics of Heroin, is padded with many newer details which merely restate the thesis and provide ample proof of the axiom that less is more….I do look forward to his new book which is plugged at the link.)

Please note that, in other recent columns, McCoy has seemed to express support for the Security State in its incarnation as the support structure for Barack Obama’s bid to become the third American Grand Master (after Elihu Root and Zbigniew Brzezenski) of the Great Game and its subsequent appeal as the one force capable of keeping Donald Trump from abandoning the Empire Obama (in McCoy’s estimation) so skillfully preserved.

People are strange, but his current piece is still well worth reading–back to basics so to speak.

I promise Gene will still be here….

So will Eddie…
