You all deserve it after your behavior the last four years. Not hatred, a resolve to seek justice. Stop whining. Turnabout is fair play.

David Habakkuk
Yes he is a good example of that phenomenon.

ked,

look on the bright side - Hilary is still not president.

Laura, try looking at five to eight of those Obama "fake fainting lady" scenes when spliced in a row, all from different rallies. Exact same words, exact same gestures, exact same set up. Exact same "adoring" crowd response.

Seeing this staged fake event is when the whole thing got very creepy - even that old fired blowhard on MSNBC -Chris Mathews - admitted it was creepy when viewed this act in succession, one after another. Just goes to show, we see what we believe already. I saw a charlatan and this was confirmed by the later video montage - too bad it got scrubbed.

Why do you suppose that happened when "the internet is forever", at least when it comes to members of the GOP and judicial appointments. Love to see that montage turn up. State's evidence Number One.

WIKI revisionists are out in force even today, trying to character assassinate Sidney Powell's wiki bio. You know the wacky alt-right, 4Chan conspiracy theorist - that is now wiki's official version of Sidney Powell.

All she does now is file frivolous lawsuits, after getting fired by Trump for going too far off the reservation with no evidence, poor girl. Go read it and have a good laugh. As the say, the louder they howl the closer you are to the target. This was a real hit job - worth a column in its own right.

Sidney, your court filing was sound and shows a sophisticated understanding of law and strategy. Thank you. But as we both know, realpolitik can and often does trump good lawyering.

re MOTUS: Was that a '59 Chevy? Quite a leap from upright fins on the '57 to the Sputnik-inspired AirLift properties of the 1959.

I didn't do so well in Chemistry, but thru the '60s, from two blocks away I could identify most cars by their grill, fins, or body shape. It was not a bad time to Be, in the USA.

Happy Thanksgiving Col. Lang and your dinner companions, and the SST committee.

Found it after all - Montage of candidate Obama's trail of fainting ladies on his 2008 campaign trail: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v1sM6MnRL00 Same scene, same words, same crown reassurances - same conclusions - it felt very staged.

There are more articles about this curious phenomenon, so it was not thoroughly scrubbed after all, although many of the hyperlinks are now dead. Reported the press just yawned because they had already seen the same scene play out over and over again at multiple prior rallies.

mcohen,

MAGA & M.I.G = Make Israel Great?

Déjà vu: Iran's top nuclear scientist killed in a complex terror attack. Four other nuclear scientist elsewhere.

But interesting Ishmael Zechariah's reference to Confucius' "Rectification of language". David Habakkuk links it to Orwell's doublespeak mentally. I don't quite see a direct line between Confucius ideal conception(Utopian)and Orwell's 'doublethink' in a controlled Dystopia (Yevgeny Zamyatin`s We??? We the people?). ... Is Babak Makkadinejad still around help me connect the dots over the millennia?

Feeding the hate needs language too, obviously. It also needs a solid definition of the enemy beyond 'elites','deep state', Borg, blob. Bewaring the hall full of mirrors in the process.

Hmmm 'rectification of names' has an activating component:

If language is incorrect, then what is said does not concord with what was meant, what is to be done cannot be effected. If what is to be done cannot be effected, then rites and music will not flourish. If rites and music do not flourish, then mutilations and lesser punishments will go astray. And if mutilations and lesser punishments go astray, then the people have nowhere to put hand or foot. Therefore, the gentleman uses only such language as is proper for speech, and only speaks of what it would be proper to carry into effect. The gentleman in what he says leaves nothing to mere chance

“When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, “it means just what I choose it to mean—neither more nor less.” “The question is,” said Alice, “whether you can make words mean so many different things.” “The question is which is to be master—that’s all.”
