In one way, and one way only.
How To Become A Third World Country
Yep, it’s the one thing socialism does really, really well. The author uses Venezuela as a dismal example of the essential truth before setting another hook:
Could Maduro really have that kind of support among the people even as the economy collapses and millions are starving? Or is something else going on here? I’m sure that many factors are in play. But clearly one of the most important factors, if not the most important, is the game of using the state prosecutorial apparatus to bring trumped-up criminal investigations and charges against the main political rivals to get them out of the way.
Hm. Sounds sorta…familiar, no?
Now, which is the more preposterous basis for siccing the state investigative forces on the main opposition candidate: (1) claiming “instigation” of a riot via explicit calls for peaceful protest, or (2) claiming “collusion” with Russia? Seems like a close call to me. At least our prosecutors didn’t go through with an actual prosecution to take the opposition candidate out in advance of the election. But that’s probably because they didn’t think they had to.
Nope. They were dead certain they’d win with Her Herness, and none of their Obamagate skullduggery would ever be exposes to the disinfecting light of day. And with Komey’s Klown-Kar Koup, they’ve done their feeble best to take Trump out after the fact. If Trump is unsuccessful at de-lousing the joint, look for them to try harder next time. As I’ve said all along: the Deep State ain’t going down without a fight.
