Now We Fight The Terrorists Over Here – “Terrorists” Meaning YOU
Well howdy, folks. Time for another journey into the affairs of a nation. It’s funny: Saturday, word reached me early that the US had reached an agreement with the Taliban to withdraw from the pointless, er, the Victorious! war in Afghanistan. I got all excited and called old MB about maybe writing it up for the coming week’s CFF column. I did and he ran it about four seconds after it hit the in-box. So… Here we are again, dear readers. I’m still happy that the Empire may soon depart Kabul, however, my excitement has been tempered by other developments. Rumor has it that the lunatics at the Pentagram want out of Middle Eastern entanglements … so they can ramp up a potential offensive against China and/or Russia. Yeah. How would that, if it came to pass, work out? Imagine the Afghan War fought against competent adversaries armed with nuclear weapons. Imagine it lasting considerably less than 19 years. But, that’s the flailing pipe dream of the Washingtonian psychotic class.
Another drop of rain on the parade is domestic. Specifically, the Domestic Terrorism Penalties Act of 2019 (-2020), HR 4187, wherein efforts formerly reserved for use against al-CIA-da, ISIS, and the Taliban Islamic Emirate (which the Empire does not recognize, except for signing treaties with…) would be turned on the American People. This potential law of Draconian proportions stands as another reason why one must support “conservatives” over “socialists.” HR 4187 is supported by the socialist Demon-crat, Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX) – along with 15 socialist Republican’ts. The Bill is the brainless child of socialist GOPer Mark Weber (R-TX). [15:1]: remember: support Republicans or else Democrats will win.
The Bill, more dangerous than useless, adds the dread charge of terrorism to crimes that are already illegal – murder, kidnapping, etc. And it introduces the element of thought crime, albeit in utterly thoughtless fashion. The keywords in the Bill are “Whoever,” “with the intent to intimidate or coerce,” “attempts or conspires,” “any person or property,” “a government,” and “interstate or foreign commerce.” The aim is to equate ordinary First-Amendment-protected statements – like those some make constantly on social media – with terrorism. The punishments range from 25 years in prison to the death penalty. The FBI is heavily pushing the legislation. Why? Because they think the majority population is a dire threat to someone.
