“The Mob Boss Orders a Hit and a Pardon”

Well, it appears Syria and Russia were on the verge of defeating the USA backed “rebels” and the US Mob Boss had stated the USA was leaving when Assad decided to use chemical weapons on his “own” people. How curious. On the verge of victory, Assad decides to cross the “red line” and use chemical weapons on his own people and give the US Mob Boss an excuse to reinvade. So, Assad is not only a cruel dictator but incredibly stupid as well. On the verge of victory and US standing down, Assad shoots himself in the foot with chemical weapons! Who woulda thunk it? Or maybe Assad was just relying on the old saw that to rally “your” people a leader needs a foreign threat or invasion. So, by using chemical weapons on his “own” people, Assad was able to renew the threat of US invasion. Maybe Assad ain’t so dumb.

The US Mob Boss, in possession of the world’s largest chemical weapons arsenal in violation of the laws of humanity, is so offended by Assad’s stupidity, acting in complete disregard of US and international law (not to mention his “solemn” pre-election promises), decided to order a hit on more Syrian people because pre-emptively killing them would protect them from Assad killing them. Being dead, they were beyond the reach of their “animal” leader. Killing the people of Syria in order to save them, the US Mob Boss continued a long and noble practice of the USA beginning at least in Vietnam and possibly stretching back as far as the extermination of the “Redman” domestically. And, like all Mob Bosses, the Capo de Capo did not get his hands dirty, relying instead on his minions to carry out the crime, just in case “law enforcement” actually came for him, the minions would take the fall while the Boss skates.

Meanwhile, the US Mob Boss took advantage of the distraction caused by the hit on Syria to “pardon” Scooter Libby, Dick Cheney’s former Chief of Staff, from his felony conviction by a jury for four counts of perjury, obstruction of justice, and making false statements. Hoping no one would notice, the Mob Boss made it clear that he does not know Scooter and really had no dog in the fight regarding his “pardon.” The US Mob Boss wanted it known this magnanimous act was simply Kingpin “Mercy” with no ulterior motive. Like noble kings of old, the US Mob Boss simply wanted to do justice. The fact that the Special Prosecutor appeared to be getting closer and closer to the Boss, indicting associates, searching the offices and home of the Capo’s consiglieri, had nothing to do with the “pardon.” Sending a message to his loyal compatriots that they should the keep their oath of silence and loyalty to the Boss despite the Special Prosecutor’s threats would result in their own pardons down the road had absolutely nothing to do with it. No, the Mob Boss was merely doing the right thing out of the magnanimity of his own soul.

Yes, James Comey, former Director of the FBI has publicly identified the US Mob Boss as a Nuevo Cosa Nostra kind of guy, but others had discerned the similarity long before. And, if we are being honest, the latest Godfather is just another in a long line of US Mob Bosses running “the business” while violating the Constitution and International Law with impunity. Nothing new here. It is sort of a “the Emperor’s New Clothes” moment in that so many for so long have refused to see the truth. It is actually refreshing to see this moment of actual news among the “fake news” so long extant: the “fake” news that somehow the US Mob Boss was a creature of law, of the Constitution, and the chief law enforcement officer of the republic, while in fact running a criminal enterprise with its many arms reaching into corrupt undertakings all around the world.

It is actually a relief. Rather than having to pretend that the USA is a “nation of law, not men,” with all the legalistic contortions that has required, Americans are now free to admit the truth. Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Having liberated the office of the President from the boundaries imposed by the Constitution, treaties and law, Americans stand indicted of having acquiesced in the triumph of power and corruption. The Emperor has no clothes. The gloves are coming off. And “all options are on the table.” Is this a great country or what?
