Let It Burn
Karl Denninger

I simply no longer care.

The actions of the Senate are beyond reprehensible at this point.  So are the actions of the USSC; Roberts and his Obamacare ruling, which was and remains blatantly unconstitutional (he re-wrote an unconstitutional fine into an unconstitutional direct tax, which nobody other than myself has pointed out for years despite it being black-letter in the Constitution!) should have been enough.

But I'm pretty tolerant, and had some hope.

I guess that's where this line came from..... it's real.

Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. 

But, at this point, we're there from my point of view.

No, I'm not reaching for a rifle.  It's worse than that actually, which is what in my view you ought to think about long and hard.

You see, it's not worth spending my life on this nation; what the Founders gave and spilled both blood and fortune for no longer exists.

The latest Kavanaugh fiasco is exactly what I'm talking about.  Avenetti (Stormy Daniels' lawyer) now is claiming that he has credible evidence that Kavanaugh and his buddies engaged in multiple, organized and premeditated gang rapes.  Actual rapes -- not "well, we both got drunk and slept together and then one of us didn't like it the next morning" sort of accusations (which are damnable claims to get to the bottom of when everyone's an adult and imbibed freely on their own -- and were all smashed) but actual premeditated gang-rape setups where the allegation is that Kavanaugh and his friends intentionally drugged or got women drunk and then attacked them serially.

That is the sort of thing you do 100 years for -- if it's true -- and you should do 100 years, after being castrated with a pair of tin snips.  And we're not talking about one event either; the claim is that there are multiple instances.

But here's the problem -- I'm supposed to believe the FBI did six background investigations of this guy during his career in public service over nearly 20 years and didn't find any evidence of any of this?


Either this is the most-damnable libel I've ever seen in public or it's true, the FBI "passed" him intentionally and he's been blackmailed since to do whatever certain people in the government want.

Either way this is the end of America.  If you can make this sort of claim and it's a lie, and by doing so derail someone's career, literally resulting in them being unemployable forever while doing irreparable damage to their family and children we no longer live in a nation that I respect nor does anyone have any duty to the rule of law ever, in any context, period -- as those who take such an action will ultimately wind up provoking a "since I'm ****ed through your outrageously false and malicious acts so are you, *******" type of response.  Maybe not this specific time, but you can bet on it happening -- and once that starts it won't stop.  Bosnia, here we come, and you don't need guns (not that the gang-bangers are short of them) -- a brick off the top of a 10 story building is more than enough.

If it's the truth then there are literally millions of Americans who have been screwed up the ass because Kavanaugh has ruled from the bench not on his beliefs, not on his analysis, but on the command of a corrupt government that has knowingly put him on the bench under blackmail.  In that case the United States has become no different than Saddam Hussein, Kim Jung-Un, Pol Pot or, for that matter, The Third Reich.

Yeah, it's that bad if in fact this allegation is true because if you believe this was one instance, that there's just one judge or official that the FBI has done this with you're dumber than a box of rocks.  It's all of them and, with certainty, virtually all of Congress and likely the White House too; Ellison anyone?  Feinstein and her "driver"?  Justice Roberts?  McConnell?  Grassley?  Schumer? Trump?  All of them folks.


Either way this nation isn't worth dying for any longer.  In fact, it's not worth anything at all and it's we the people who have allowed it to happen.

I no longer care if we get nuked in the morning and no, if it happens, I won't fight against whoever did it.

There's nothing left to fight for and we not only let it happen we still, to this minute of this day refuse to get off our ass and put a stop to it.  One man writing a blog won't do a damn thing nor will one person playing "nutjob"; 10 or 100 million getting off their ass and demanding a stop to all of it now would, but the fact is that nobody cares.

We, collectively as a nation, deserve what's not just coming, it's here today -- and those screaming "MAGA!" are in fact the worst of the intentionally complicit as we now have hard proof that Trump simply wants this power for himself.
