Remember Watergate?

Check this out....


The Capitol police:

- Entered his office without permission or notice.

- Photographed documentation without permission.

- Tried to enter again

- Were disguised as construction workers.

This raises some questions:

- Primarily, who was ordering them to do this?

- Just as critical, why would members of a law enforcement outfit charged with protecting Congress agree to act as spies?

- Who were the photographs delivered to?

- Who will investigate the Capitol police?

If this had happened to a Democrat while Trump was in office? The media would be blaring it from every corner, demanding another ritual "impeachment" of Orange Man Bad.

Richard Nixon was forced to resign when it was discovered that he had knowledge of the Watergate burglary. Want to wager on whether anyone in a significant position will be punished for this or that anything will happen at all? 

Even the pretense of living as a nation of laws has evaporated. We are in a de facto dictatorship and therefore this government and all of the laws, edicts and declarations it makes are illegitimate.

  1. Yes, the corruption is so profound and widespread that any thoughts of "reform" sound like doing surgery on a patient who has Stage 4 Cancer of the Everything. The only possible "reform" starts with overthrowing the regime, burning DC to the ground, letting no stone stand on another, as Jesus said of the Temple. And then resist the temptation to "rebuild" on a continental scale. No "general government" at all. States can reorganize (or break up further -- California, for example, is far too big to make sense as a single political entity) as they choose, perhaps forming regional defense alliances. But first: the snake HAS to lose its head. Period.

  2. Well we know who they report too, the real question is does the gin hag remember ordering the breakin or was she passed out when they told her about it?

    Amen. They have power, though not as much as they think they do. But no legitimatacy. Sure govt, down to your local dog catcher, goes through the motions, that doesnt mean it is legit.
    IMHO, govt lost legitimacy with Castle Rock V Gonzalez in 2005. I give up my power to do violence. For that contractural consideration, the govt part of the bargin is to protect me. So SCOTUS said FYTW, we are changing the terms of this social contract.
