Chaos Incarnate

 

[Let’s listen in to this conversation in progress . . . ]

JB—So Nance, how’s it going? You folks have been pretty busy raising Cain in the last couple of weeks.

NP—Well, yes, that’s true, Joe. How are you doing? Where are you campaigning?

JB—[silence] Let’s see . . . oh yes, we’re in . . . so hey, I wanted to talk to you about this latest wrinkle in the impeachment business.

NP—Yes. Kind of crazy, isn’t it?

JB—Crazy isn’t the word I’d use. Completely insane! Okay, let me be straight with you. I’m not at all happy about the road you folks are going down. This was all supposed to be settled years ago. George promised me that it would be water under the bridge. What’s going on?

NP—I’m so sorry, Joe. You and I have been friends for, what, 40 years? You know I wouldn’t do anything to cause you problems. In fact, this whole tack wasn’t even my idea. I didn’t want to go down the impeachment road. But George said that we had no choice, so here we are. Our only purpose is to oust and destroy Trump; no other issue comes close. I’m sorry you’ve gotten caught up in the turbulence, but there’s no turning back now.

JB—What? No way! George promised me that Ukraine would be a non-issue, and that if I wanted to be President, I just had to be patient. So I’ve waited. Heck, now I’m really too old to do this [expletive]. I could have just taken it easy and helped you guys in the background. Now I’m stuck running and my brain is fried and I’m just plum worn out. But I have a lot of people depending on me! You’ve got to talk to George and turn things around somehow. I’m not doing this [expletive] over broken promises. And he promised.

NP—You know I’m not in charge here, Joe. This whole thing is bigger than both of us. And this time we’re not just blowing smoke. We’re going to get him, his family and the whole Republican party. Trust me, it will be worth it. By banking on our P.R. that this isn’t about partisan politics but to preserve our national security and save our democracy will do the job.

JB—so what am I supposed to do? Let myself be taken down by friendly fire? I’m not doing it, Nancy. It’s not fair. It’s not right. Not even to get Trump. I’m not just going to sit by and let you folks destroy my reputation. I don’t care what George says.

NP—Now, Joe, take it easy. Hey, I’m upset for you, too. We’re friends. But sometimes there are bigger fish to fry. Besides, you really don’t want to take on George, do you?

JB—I don’t know, Nancy. I’m thinking about it. I’m thinking that if I go down, I could take you all with me.

What have I got to lose?

    If the Dems take Biden out and Warren wins, they’ll be stuck with a candidate who has only slightly more charm than Hillary . . .

    Liz has charm? Where has she been hiding it?

    Slightly more than “none” is still next to none . . .

    Warren could have negative charm and still have more than Hillary.

    I would say the measurement on both fails to reach even zero, never mind positive numbers.

    That they’re all pawns in Soros’ game and JB is just roadkill? It’s worse than that. Sure, the Open Society Foundations are (is? the plural name confuses me) fund(s) a tremendous amount of mischief. But can we trace our current Resistance to them? That was spawned by Obama and the Clintons.

    How about the Remain movement in Britain? That’s the purest example of the globalist/nationalist conflict. Again, that one’s mostly homegrown.

    Globalists have been doing very well for themselves everywhere in the west, by constricting their national populations and replacing them with third worlders. Their movement doesn’t need a master controller.

    Sure it is fantasy, but I would love to see Joe attack his fellow Dems. We could learn some good/important/amusing things if he started going after them for their corruption.

    I’ve formulated and discarded three humorous answers. The truth is that I don’t know that Soros wasn’t behind Obama. Now you’ve made me write a double negative and I’m reflecting on truth tables. Is the converse equivalent to the inverse?

    I hope you’re right, Susan. After all, he’s mortal. Look how much better things got after McCain met his reward.

    Nice little satire, Susan.  It is satire, isn’t it?  It’s so close to what Biden is at least thinking that it may be closer to reality than satire.  It looks to me that this Ukraine mess is actually going to take Biden down. 

    Joe really is collateral damage.  The Dems lobbed a bomb and Biden was mortally wounded by the shrapnel.

    You are always thinking, Susan.  Bad habit, that.

    You still up, Arahant?  Do you also have insomnia?  I’m up to five tablets of Gabapentin, but those tablets don’t help much.  I’m going on something new in a few days.  I don’t know what yet.

    I don’t have much hope.  I’ve had insomnia for about forty years now.

    I’m going to bed now.

    Sorry to hijack your post, Susan, but when Arahant gave my response a Like at about 1:30 a.m. (or up to 4:30 a.m. if Arahant lives on the East Coast), it started me wondering who among the Ricocheters have insomnia.

    You have insomnias, Susan?

    No. I meditate myself to sleep. Usually works.

    Who’s George? George Washington – George Soros – George Stephanapoulous? I think you are saying that there is a world agenda that Trump is in the way of – steamrolled by Obama. He coached the climate change girl Greta before she addressed the UN I heard.

    I just started reading Obama’s Legacy Revealed by Bill Koenig – please get it – it’s shocking and confirms what you are saying – and I’m only on page 50!
