"And he called out with a mighty voice, “Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! She has become a dwelling place for demons, a haunt for every unclean spirit, a haunt for every unclean bird, a haunt for every unclean and detestable beast." Revelation 18:2 English Standard Version

We now have the distinction of kiddie concentration camps on US soil.

On the eve of the summit between the American Antichrist and Russian Beelzebub, the Manchurian Puppet with a Propecia Ferret on his head called our long-standing allies "foes." Pinocchio likely did not ask about the illegal annexation of Crimea; the chemical attacks on British soil nor the confirmed cyber attack by his own intelligence agencies on our electoral process in 2016. Our enemies used bitcoin as a cover for their deeds, reminiscent of a Bond villain. I expect a call to lift sanctions on the Russians. I expect the keys to our republic handed over to the devil.

- Russian bots stoked KKK fears (which, kind of is their raison d'être) during the protests of racism at the University of Missouri in 2015...

- 12 Russians were indicted Friday for actively hacking into the 2016 campaign...

- His party in the House want to impeach the Deputy Attorney General...

- We have NO protections against the Russians doing the same thing or worse in 2018 or 2020...

This began with the Orwellian-named Citizen's United and [dark] "money as free speech."

This began with Merrick Garland's seat stolen from President Obama; even the vow that the Supreme Court would be held 4-4 until the NEXT republican president, whether that happened in 2016 or 2020!

This began with abolishing Civics, abstinence versus safe birth control, the elevation of creationism/intelligent design in the public sphere; the war on science and the irrational fears of cultural oblivion which is the foundation of fascism, homophobia, racism, sexism, white supremacy and xenophobia.

This nightfall is the public dissolution of our federal republic. It is the unraveling of accepted norms, and you cannot have norms when your citizens are bereft of information on what those "norms" are.

This nation was founded on the twin sins of genocide of Native Americans and the systematic kidnap, uncompensated free labor and debasement of African nations and their descendants. We've tried to obfuscate, fabricate false narratives and tell ourselves outright lies to blanket this heinous history. Now we flirt with fascism, the same we fought the second world war over and became at least metaphorically Winthrop's "city on a hill." Our union was then, and is still now segregated, and far from perfect. "United States" has always teetered between work-in-progress and oxymoron. There was always some hope of a better and brighter future. It has never been so relentlessly and purposely ground to powder, prepared for tossing into the garbage furnace of history with tiny, orange and malevolent hands; aided by an entire political party so afraid of demographic changes that they callously upend the notion of who can vote, who can marry, who can live comfortably in the public commons, bent on holding power beyond the norms of democracy - which then can no longer be called a democracy.

“Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! She has become a dwelling place for demons, a haunt for every unclean spirit, a haunt for every unclean bird, a haunt for every unclean and detestable beast."

"Our republic and its press will rise and fall together." Joseph Pulitzer

Lügenpresse - Time.com, German for "lying press," a Nazi pejorative invoked by #MAGA supporters at rallies resembling "The Two Minutes Hate*" (1984), the obvious ideological precursor to "fake news" and "alternative facts."

SKYCITY TALKRADIO

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
