The Whorehouse-on-the-Charles

Meanwhile at the Whorehouse-on-the-Charles perhaps more widely known as Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, life goes on as it always has with people there worshipping power (or at least the appearance thereof) with a vigor seldom seen anywhere else on the planet.

It was rumored around Boston that there was a mass outbreak of hives around the place when, after the elections in November, the people there were forced to sit down and talk with Trump’s homeboy Corey Lewandowski.

At that time, I joked to a friend, “Just watch, he’ll be named a fellow in few years and given an office and a nice salary to turn out pseudo-intellectual tripe”

Well, just a few days ago it happened: Corey Lewandowski was named a fellow at the School’s Institute of Government. He was joined on this year’s honor roll by those towering intellects Joe Scarborough Sean Spicer, and Joe’s new paramour and fellow deep thinker Mika Brzezinski.

Also on this year’s list of named fellows was Chelsea Manning who risked life in prison to share with the American people and the world the actual brutality of the way our “heroes in uniform” spread “justice and democracy” to other countries.

But it just so happens that one of the most powerful and unhinged members of the US Deep State, Mike Morell (if you don’t believe me, just dial up his interview with Charlie “Suck-Up-to-the Stars” Rose on 8 August 2016) was already ensconced an obfuscator-in-residence at the W-O-T-C and he didn’t like the idea of having to share space with someone who showed the world what people like him really do with the trillions of dollars we give them.

He resigned in protest. His resignation was followed by an impassioned letter of protest about Manning’s nomination by the madman currently running the CIA, Mike Pompeo.

Within the space of one news cycle, the Madams and Pimps at the Whorehouse rescinded their invitation to Manning calling it a “mistake”.

Once again they had managed to avoid the near occasion of helping to spread the truth about the predatory war state in which we live.
