They are all a part of the establishment. The parting on the left is now the parting on the right as Pete Townsend wrote.

Reynolds points out that the revolt at the State Department is out in the open now. How many others are in revolt?

McRaven is under orders to keep his damn mouth shut on politics and yet issued a virtual call to arms.

Obama openly politicized his government agencies and departments. There can be no argument to that fact. Even our military has been deeply politicized. Somewhere I may still have an e mail I sent to GEN Petraeus warning him that he was probably stepping into a viper's nest by going to CIA.

He did it to himself, but nevertheless I am sure the deep state did their best to ensure that he could never run against a Democrat.

I am reminded of the widespread need to use flamethrowers in the Pacific Campaign to root out the Japanese fanatics.

But we're in pretty bad shape if that's the best we can do (and it is). Who our society has somehow elevated to elite status is truly troubling.
Posted by: Chris not rock at October 21, 2019 12:44 PM (EJMo6)
++++++++++
The elite has its place. Every natural human system has a hierarchy. It's about how you build that hierarchy. Ours was supposed to be based on merit - the competent rise and the extremely competent become elite.

It has failed. Our elites are incompetent buffoons with the trappings of elitism but none of its substance. I don't think Trump can really fix it, though he seems to be trying through exposing it to sunlight. The "meritocracy without merit" (as Tucker calls it) has been exposed. Whether it is replaced - and if the replacement is any better - is very much an open question. The current elite and their hangers-on just want an old European-style aristocracy - an elite with no qualifications at all.

El Rushbo was tearing Pierre Delecto a new cornhole this morning. Deservedly so. Romney is the last useless tit on a sclerotic boar that is the GOP.

i heard a brief bit of the broadcast this morning. Rush made a point inadvertently that ryhmed with this Syria nonsense and endless war.

Kennedy and Johnson got us bogged in Vietnam. Nixon got us out. and he got himself impeached.

association isn't causality but i'd never put the Nam exit alongside Democrat wrath to impeach.

KevlarKid

did Trump steal retired Spec Ops Admiral McRaven's thunder by pulling operators off the Turkish-Syrian border?

i'm hearing that he's insinuating the need for a coup because Trump is steamrolling his way to the 2020 re-election slaughter.

Trump should blow all of these traitors up by parodying Obama's hot mic gaffe with Medvedev re

Mrs. Buckeye and I spent Sat/Sun with my 3 sisters and their husbands at my sisses place in the Cincy area.

Saturday afternoon the girls checked out some craft shops while the boys did a pub crawl.

All of this was going on in Loveland which has become extremely gentrified.

We did a couple of craft beer bars before hitting the place with a huge Bourbon collection.

The girls met us there and then had dinner at some swanky place. I don't remember much of dinner, probably because of the Bourbon tasting extravaganza.

Got the low down an why my niece told Case to shove it after 3 weeks.

She realized very quickly that she was there as their token white female genius, and life was too short for that.

Not Presidents’ Day!
LOL

KevlarKid

simple answer as i see it, Iggy? post Goldwater era (Great Society 1965) pork appealed to congressional reps on both sides of the aisle---- graft, corruption, money laundering which are part and parcel of the Red, Blue, and Purple players' organizations today.

even under Reagan those assholes conceded on tax cuts and interest rates (after Carter) but managed to ram through Shamnesty which has led to the building of the human trafficking machine Michelle Malkin is writing about in her new book.

the con. it is all about the con. no budget battles. just straightlining taxpayer money into their troughs.

no one loses but US.

and this crap about "foreign policy"? we are seeing the river of dirty cash and how it buys mansions on some eastern US exclusive island and blow for Biden's kid to put up his nose.

the impeachment coup is a symptom of what is taking down the Republic--- they are looting the Treasury 7 generations deep.

taking a breath. :)

My take on these turncoat Mormons is the church is sacrificing its old conservative family values to globalism which may be enhancing the world wide growth of the membership.

I could certainly be wrong.

Captain Hate

Caro,

McCain's is August 29
Romney's March 12
The Beast October 26

I'll figure out the midpoint later. Probably something in July.

Melinda

I’ll nominate July 4th because I’m inclusive, nostalgic, and will dedicate the first Bloody Mary of the day to that law of averages that sealed their collective fates, and celebrate the rest of the day to honor the patriots that designed the system that denied those three their own day of glory.

But I might be biased....

Captain Hate

Ok

Mutt's BD is day #171
Sidney's #241
The Beast #319

That sums to 731
Divided by 3 is 243.67
Rounded up is September 1

You're welcome to check my math.

I would just go with April 1 since most people who voted for McCain and Romney feel pretty foolish about it now.

We can toss in Gore & Kerry to see if that gets a better average date. (Biden too, we hope).

I trust your calculator, but the logic might be flawed:)
