I believe the term for this
But don't breathe a sigh of relief yet. Remember, Roger Stone tweeted that the fall of Clinton would occur on Wednesday, not Tuesday. So we still have another day of angst.
Just now, Stone retweeted an offering from Captain Nutball (a.k.a. Alex Jones), linking to this article
on Nutball.com, which claims that the coming Assange blast will reveal secrets of "the Deep State."
Oooh! Illuminati stuff!
Captain Nutball's source is none other than Roger Stone himself. There aren't many jerkers in this particular circle jerk.
In the accompanying video, we see Stone looking like -- well, like a stoner, dressed in a t-shirt and a beanie (Roger!!!!
) as he poses in front of his collection of Nixon posters. Nice visual, Roger -- this is a perfect
time to remind people that you were once a young and particularly amoral dirty trickster working for the guy who came to power through smears and lies, not to mention deep-sixing Johnson's efforts to negotiate an end to the Vietnam war. Roger, I know someone (a very respectable and well-known someone) who heard you brag about creating the fake group "Gays for McGovern," back in '72. You're a fucking liar. Always have been. Why should we believe anything you have to say now?
“Too many people are onto the mainstream media and they correctly identify them with the rotting fetid New World Order,” Stone said.
Stone -- the man who first smeared the Khan family as terrorists, the man who almost certainly played a role in the 1980 "Debategate" scandal
, the man who co-wrote one of the all-time worst JFK assassination books, the man who has bragged about his mastery of "brutal" and "psychological" politics -- has plopped into bed with the right-wing batshit crazies. He's been romancing them for quite a while, but until recently he has kept the affair limited to kissing, groping, and heavy petting. Now, it's all swallowing and choking and plow-me-hard-baby-and-never-mind-the-hemorrhoids
(Forgive me. I've been reading a lot of Robert Morrow, and it seems to have affected my language.)
By the way: You know the rumor that Hillary Clinton called for a drone strike against Julian Assange?
. The only source for the rumor was a right-wing conspiracy site called True Pundit, and they supposedly got the story from unnamed State Department insiders. Riiiight.
As if Clinton insiders would go straight to True Pundit instead of, say, the Washington Post. My guess is that the true
source for True Pundit is a guy named Roger.
