The Rescript of Honorius was a message to the Roman cities of Britain: “Look to your own defense.” In other words, we know the barbarians are coming, but we’ve got a civil war on our hands here, so you’re on your own. Best of luck.
The Weiner emails have put us in a Rescript of Honorious situation. No matter what happens with the election, FedGov is going to be paralyzed for quite some time. Stability-wise, the best case scenario is something like “Obama pardons Clinton; president-elect Trump orders a whitewash for the sake of national unity.” (N.b. to spergs: I said best case, stability-wise. Nothing about justice, or right, or deserve, or should / woulda / coulda. Just “allowing the government to resume basic functionality in the quickest possible time”).
Even under this scenario, some very high-level people are going to have to swing. No, I don’t believe that John Podesta, Bill Clinton, and Huma Abedin were getting jiggy with kids on Satan’s behalf; nonetheless, the amount of shady shit that unquestionably, incontrovertibly went down, and has been documented in gruesome detail, is quite sufficient to get some big names shot under the Espionage Act. John Podesta, at least, is going to have to see some serious federal pound-me-in-the-ass prison time, which might keep the current Cold Civil War just simmering.
Note that it took a while for the Romans to acknowledge the loss of Britain, and even longer for the barbarians to take over completely. I don’t expect blood in the streets this year, whatever happens. But what citizen can, in good conscience, obey such a criminal government? Who will ever trust the media again? What commander is going to order his men into battle on behalf of traitors and (possible) kiddy-fiddlers?
Someone’s going to get propped against a wall and shot for this. The only questions are when, and who’s doing the shooting?Loading Likes...
