Republican alchemy

Republicans dream of spinning substance out of spin—pure spin! But now that Trump’s in charge, they expect is so easily! Why won’t every government entity drink from Trump’s anal leak? Is he not Supreme Ruler?

“From a civil liberties standpoint, the greatest danger to our free system is that the incumbent government use the apparatus of the state … both to spy on political opponents but also to use them in a way that could affect the outcome of an election,” Barr said. He added that this was the first time in history that “counterintelligence techniques” were used against a presidential campaign.

Barr said that presidential campaigns are frequently in contact with foreigners, contradicting the comments of numerous political professionals who have said for two years that there is rarely, if ever, a reason for a presidential campaign to be in touch with Russians.

Barr added, “There was and never has been any evidence of collusion and yet this campaign and the president’s administration has been dominated by this investigation into what turns out to be completely baseless.”

The cause: Republicans, and masters of the culture industry in general, are used to having real magical efficacy. Throw money at a problem and it goes away, whether by hitman, propaganda, bribery, or funding the election of functionaries who they market as ordinary socially conservative “family, children, working, [white], American families” blah blah blah. But their job is to pass as much pro-capital and anti-99% laws as possible. Republican politicians get started in politics in order to find sponsors.

BTW, when marketers call their congressional products these things, the dog whistle heard by (uneducated) white workers is something like,

Niggers, beware! Jews, beware! Faggots and transexuals and other monstrosities—beware! Good, hardworking White people are sick of your dark-skinned, smart, sex-celebrating asses. We want to kill you, or at least lock you up, or at least disemploy you, or punish you in some way. Vote for me, Richy McPretendRedneck, and let’s get back to feeling good about someone else’s suffering again!

IG Michael Horowitz, after reviewing a million documents and interviewing 100 people, concluded (1) that the FBI did not violate SOP and (2) that it was not hired by an occult organization to attack Trump. Barr doesn’t like that answer! So he’s hired his own “investigator” to create the opposite finding. This guy:

Central casting called me. I’m here for “evil imp.” Is this makeup too much?

The insane degree of fakery, and the twisted faces of these anus-sucking imps is something that even Oliver Stone or Rick Roderick would have trouble believing was not an intentional result of casting. Look at Durham’s sinister face, and the faces of the easygoing dominators behind him. His eyebrows and brow and worm-like mouth, almost hidden. He looks like a hate-filled person who is so hate-filled that it threatens to leak through his “I’m just a human. Nothing to see here”-disguise.
