“With some luck, Ukraine will cease to be a threat to world peace”

Might there be a happy ending to the Ukraine distraction, against all odds?

The operation will probably end this month. My guess is that Mr. Zelensky will be allowed to remain president of what remains on the map, minus Donbas and the region along the Black Sea coast from Mariupol to Odessa. Mr. Zelensky will not have a functioning military to make trouble with. Other patches of Western Ukraine may be distributed among Poland, Moldova, Romania, and Hungary, leaving a large rump of Ukraine between Lvov and the Dnieper River devoted mostly to the growing of wheat. A stable, agricultural Ukraine will be a benefit to a hungry world, while it will no longer be in a position to launch hostilities or be of much use as a money-laundering facility. In short, with some luck, Ukraine will cease to be a threat to world peace.

Ukraine may have been “Joe Biden’s” last opportunity to screw things up on the world scene. As the military conflict resolves, Ukraine can’t be used by the White House as a shield to divert America’s attention from the political cancer of Biden family corruption, and the systemic illness of the nation’s institutions. Merrick Garland may not be able to contain the open case against Hunter Biden to mere rinky-dink tax violations — and if he tries to limit the US Attorneys in charge of the case, he will be setting himself up for an obstruction of justice rap some months from now. The laptop is out now, too many people have copies of the hard drive, and some are working diligently to make the mess of it more easily searchable. So, expect much more to come.

It won’t be easy for the Democratic Party to get rid of “Joe Biden.” Nobody can feature Kamala Harris in the oval office, and were she to somehow gracefully remove herself from the scene, next-in-line would be Nancy Pelosi who, in addition to being long-in-the-tooth, seems to be literally drunk half the time in her public appearances. And behind her: Patrick Leahy, Senate President Pro Tem, who is nearly as senile and incoherent as “Joe Biden.”

Lots of other spooky things are churning meanwhile in the zeitgeist. Overnight, with his blundering sanctions, “Joe Biden” killed the little credibility left in the shreds of Bretton Woods and gave a green light for Russia to start a world-wide move to gold-backed currencies. That could easily turn the current US dollar inflation from an annualized 8 percent to a runaway hyperinflation, where prices double in weeks or days. It’s becoming ever clearer that special counsel John Durham means business and many a swamp creature must be quivering in its burrow awaiting indictment. The controversy over the 2020 election will prove to be not as over as many have hoped and imagined. And we await developments on the after-effects of all those vaxxes and boosters carried out all over Western Civ. These dangerous currents amount to a huge riptide in global events that will carry many people and whole societies out to sea.

Poor Bill Kuenstler, still desperately flailing away at those Durham’s a-comin’!!/2020 election drums of his, blissfully unaware that the heads are busted all to tatters and flinders, the rims are out of round and rusted, and the cracks in the shells are getting bigger and bigger. A passage from the “abolish the FBI” piece I excerpted earlier this evening handily deflates any hopeful gasbaggery about what Durham is or is not liable to do.

According to a well-documented OIG report, (former FBI Deputy Director Andrew) McCabe repeatedly lied about leaking information during the 2016 presidential campaign in order to somehow deflect charges that he was in the tank for Hillary Cllinton. After months of stalling and obstruction, the Justice Department (not the FBI) finally fired McCabe just in time to slightly impact his retirement benefits. But the Democratic-aligned attorneys at the Department of Justice soon restored these retirement benefits and paid him a generous $200,000 in back pay…

(former FBI attorney Kevin) Clinesmith, likewise, insisted he falsified evidence for the FISA court with the full knowledge and participation of his superiors. He didn’t name names and thus far, Clinesmith is the only FBI employee to take the fall for the deception. He received no jail time and had his law license reinstated after just a short suspension. One would normally expect an attorney who falsified evidence for the purpose of deceiving a court to be disbarred. The Clinesmith case is particularly disturbing because it involves defrauding the court to spy on Carter Page, who was a political campaign figure. 

Annnnd that’s the sum total produced by Durham’s “investigation” to date: reinstatement of his retirement package plus a cool 200k “back pay” bonus for McCabe; a brief suspension of his license, no jail or even disbarment for Clinesmith. You’ll forgive me if I don’t consider this cause for undue optimism in re: Durham going forward, I hope. I mean, it’s possible his slow-burn fiddle-fucking around might not mean all that much, and Durham could easily stun all observers and come roaring out of virtual hibernation to start slinging the subpoenas, the arrest warrants, and the perp walks around before lunch tomorrow. I wouldn’t be willing to bet so much as a plugged nickel on it, though.

Why would he come out with a bombshell? No Republicans are demanding it. In a year he can go to Belize and sip sunrises

Joetato or his successor Cackles will have plenty of opportunities to screw up mightily. The ChiComs haven’t even begun to make their move yet. Plus this economy appears to be headed for even lower depths of suckitude.

Even if Durham did anything, it’s obvious someone else will just overrule it and reinstate rewards and withdraw any penalties assessed.

I doubt Durham will do much more anyway. He drew a paycheck for lo these many years but didn’t want his slow walk to turn out like Mueller’s did. So he found a patsy and imposed penalties he knew would soon be reversed. See, unlike Mueller did, I actually DID something!

Barry

Probably. I hang on by my fingernail tips to the 0.01% chance you are wrong.

kennycan

And so do I.

But if I had to make a bet and decide my future on it, well….

Barry

🙂 I wouldn’t bet against you.
