Every day it becomes clearer that the OM and his adult children may one day be prosecuted under RICO laws for the ongoing racketeering involved in the OM’s private business, his campaign and his presidency (annihilating the very Emoluments Clause of the Constitution that he took an oath to defend), his foundation, and how he now conducts his foreign policy in a pay-to-play manner, probably using his inaugural committee to add to his purportedly ill-gotten gains.
To compare the OM to our most disgraced president, Richard Nixon, who was forced to resign, is to greatly discredit Nixon. We have never had anyone in the Oval Office who can credibly be accused of behaving like a mob boss the way the OM has and continues to do.
Now, with the recent courageous action taken by Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon and the owner of the Washington Post, in revealing that he was being blackmailed and extorted by David Pecker, owner of the National Enquirer, the extent of the OM’s potential willingness to go far beyond any bounds of legality, comes deeply into focus. Since Pecker has already admitted that he and his company have aided and abetted the OM in committing a criminal felony, the OM’s dirty little fingerprints seem to be all over this latest criminal act, along with the fingerprints of MBS and of the murderous Saudi Arabian regime.
That the richest man in the world may be a victim of such extortion and blackmail as dished out by the sleazy criminal worldwide conspiracy involving Russia, Saudi Arabia, and the OM’s Administration, perhaps along with many prominent elected Republicans who may have knowingly accepted illegal foreign contributions from Russia and Saudi Arabia, is astonishing and frightening, but not surprising. After all, if Jeff Bezos cannot protect himself from this type of tyranny who among us can?
For years we have had the best government that money can buy. Now it becomes clear than many in our federal government may have been bought and paid for with laundered Russian money or with Saudi Arabian blood money or perhaps with both. This should surprise no one. We are under attack by foreign governments, who are seeking through illegal and underhanded means to subvert our government’s actions and foreign policy. This was and is an attack as serious as if we were being bombarded and blasted by Russian, Saudi Arabian and perhaps Chinese missiles, not filled with nuclear warheads but filled with billions of dollars of laundered money and bribes. As much as a nuclear war, this is perhaps as dangerous and far more insidious. The attack comes in dead of night, in dark rooms and with dark money, enabled by the best bought and paid for Supreme Court, who gave us Citizens United, opening the floodgates for such dark money.
Since we now have a federal government for sale to the highest bidder (say, for example, to the cabal of Russian Oligarchs and American Oligarchs like Robert and Rebekah Mercer—who hoisted Cambridge Analyitica, Wikileaks and Breitbart and the OM himself on the American public—along with the Shyster-In-Chief Rupert Murdoch, owner of the Fox News (Fox Noise) Channel, and other questionable members of what looks more and more like an international conspiracy, we should not be surprised when an attempt is made not only to overthrow our democracy but to end or distort every other democracy on the planet, and to break apart our democratic alliances like NATO. Can anything less than world domination be their goal? I seriously doubt it.
As I pointed out in my last posting, it becomes clearer every day that the OM won’t be running for reelection next year. He will have been removed from office by then. Earlier today, Senator Elizabeth Warren talked about this very reality in a speech given in Iowa, already on the campaign trail. Indeed, she pointed out that the OM might not even be a free person when the 2020 election rolls around.
Not unlike any other criminal organization brought to justice under the RICO laws of the United States of America, the mob boss at the head of the criminal conspiracy will go down the hardest, but when such an evil and villainous leader goes down, his entire enterprise will fall with him.
In this case, I would suggest that Mr. David Pecker and what little is left of his despicable National Enquirer (which should really be renamed Blackmail, Inc.), will be among the first members of the OM’s vast international conspiracy to fall.
The many other shoes to drop when the big boss falls, long after the indictments of Flynn, Manafort, Gates, Stone and the other already indicted folks, may soon include Don, Jr., Ivanka and Jared, Mike Pence (who was, after all, handpicked by the Russian-appointed Campaign Managter Manafort, perhaps at Putin’s approval), the Mercers, Cambridge Analytica, Steve Bannon, Rupert Murdoch and his tribe of manipulators at Fox Noise, particularly Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson, the Saudi Arabian government, and elected Republican enablers who aided and abetted Obstruction of Justice including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, former House Speaker Paul Ryan, and perhaps the most despicable on the least, Representative David Nunes. And that’s just the short list. Soon indictments will be falling in Washington, DC, like a heavy spring rain, beginning in late winter through all of the spring and into the summer of 2019.
Long before 2020 arrives, the Don of this criminal cabal will be forced to leave his office, and will probably end up in a supervised padded cell somewhere, when he finds that the plea of insanity or of onset dementia rather than a pleading of guilty, will prove to be too hard to resist. A padded cell is, of course, far more comfortable, even wearing a straitjacket, than it is living in a cell without padding. And it’s far warmer, but not as warm as the spot already reserved for him in Hell.
