The Madness of King Stupid

Putin Rides Again
(credit: The Art of Buddy McCue via Scissorhead B-4)

The Little Kremlin-on-the-Potomac investigation may be over, but it lives on in the 4th Reich’s efforts to prove that the whole thing was a conspiracy by everyone else from the Deep State (whoever that is!) to Hillary Clinton, because of course she would do whatever it took to have the Russians throw the election to Comrade Trump.

IT GOES RIGHT TO THE TOP, SHEEPLE!!11

Anyway, to that end, Comrade Prznint Stupid has given strategic hire AG Bill ‘low’ Barr sweeping power to declassify intelligence records in a review of how his 2016 Goat Rodeo campaign was investigated.  Which means that the entire intelligence apparatus of the United States and three different U.S. attorneys are now chasing chasing Comet Hale-Bopp like good Heaven’s Gate cultists. Because we have a mad king and everything is about his whims, and settling scores. That’s why.

Be very clear about this: that is the President of the United States calling for the death penalty for James Comey and others.

NYTimes:

“President Trump took extraordinary steps on Thursday to give Attorney General William P. Barr sweeping new authorities to conduct a review into how the 2016 Trump campaign’s ties to Russia were investigated, significantly escalating the administration’s efforts to place those who investigated the campaign under scrutiny.

“In a directive, Mr. Trump ordered the C.I.A. and the country’s 15 other intelligence agencies to cooperate with the review and granted Mr. Barr the authority to unilaterally declassify their documents. The move — which occurred just hours after the president again declared that those who led the investigation committed treason — gave Mr. Barr immense leverage over the intelligence community and enormous power over what the public learns about the roots of the Russia investigation.

“The order is a change for Mr. Trump, who last year dropped a plan to release documents related to the Russia investigation amid concerns from Justice Department officials who said making them public could damage national security.”

    If this fuck had the power, we’d have Stalin-like Show Trials at the drop of a hat. This is madness.

    What bothers me most is the colossal Trumpian projection behind it all. He is the fucking traitor (in a non-legal sense), and yet in his diseased, grotesque mind the way to address that horror is to project his perfidy onto the people who loyally, at great career risk, investigated him for it. Because “the oranges of the investigation.”

    He deserves to spend the rest of his life in solitary, baying at the walls of his cell.

    Lawd help us. And when this ‘investigation’ is over there will have to be another investigation of the ‘investigation’ of the investigation I suspect the third one will be the charm.

    This action takes the Scary as Fuck Meter way up to the red line. Our protections in the Intelligence communities are being shredded right in front of us. Barr won’t be objective; he’s going in loaded for bear and he’ll find what he wants to find.

    It’s another case of this president being goaded by his advisers to take this presidency to the extreme. And we seem unable to stop him. Again.

    Ugh, I simultaneously laugh and cringe when he mentions Lisa Page, the ‘wonderful lover’. God, Trump is such a knee-biter.

    That being said, I can’t imagine things going well for him if he escalated his fight with the FBI. Does he think they’d sit idly by and watch him drag Comey off to jail, or worse?
