18 Years for J6er, wrist slap for wannabe Nazi assassin
Sai Vashti Kandula must know someone—or something. On Monday evening, Kandula drove his rented U-Haul into a barrier a few hundred feet from the White House, backed up, and rammed the barrier again.
Upon being apprehended, Kandula reportedly said he wanted to “kill the president.” On Tuesday, based on statements he made at the scene, Kandula was charged with “threatening to kill, kidnap, inflict harm on a president, vice president, or family member.” If that were not enough, he was also charged with “assault with a dangerous weapon, reckless operation of a motor vehicle and trespassing.”
The fact that he carried a Nazi flag in his backpack had to ramp up the threat level. In an interview after the arrest, Kandula told investigators that “Nazi’s have a great history.” He reportedly admires their “authoritarian nature, eugenics, and their one world order.” To make for a better photo-op authorities obligingly spread the flag out on the ground beside the truck.
Has Ben Crump defamed one white person too many?
The race-baiting biz has a supply problem. For years, Bizarro World “civil rights” attorney Ben Crump has made a small
fortune chasing racists. None of them has been a real racist, but some – Derek Chauvin, George Zimmerman – have, at least, looked mean enough to convince a complicit media.
The supply of real racists has been dwindling for at least a half century, but given the success of hucksters like Al Sharpton and the marble-mouthed Crump, the demand for racists continues to increase. So it should have been no surprise that Crump went after Sarah Comrie, the unfortunate New York City woman labeled “Citi Bike Karen.” Watching Comrie desperately wrangle over a bike, Crump filtered the video through the only lens he knows.
For Obama, the Cover-Up Was Worse than the Crime
Two enduring aphorisms emerged from the Watergate affair, both directed at then-president Richard Nixon. The one at the outset of the investigation was delivered in the form of a question: “What did he know and when did he know it?” The second came at the end in the form of a warning to future presidents: “The cover-up is worse than the crime.”
Thanks to the Durham report, we know the date that then-president Barack Obama learned about what John Durham calls the “Clinton Intelligence plan.” If CIA Director John Brennan’s notes are to be believed, that date was August 3, 2016.
This was the day Brennan briefed Obama and other key players about the “alleged approval by Hillary Clinton on 26 July of a proposal from one of her [campaign] advisors to vilify Donald Trump by stirring up a scandal claiming interference by the Russian security services.”
Harry’s Ghost, Like Obama’s, Talks Too Much
Maybe I missed something in ghostwriting class, but I always thought the ghostwriter’s job was to remain as ghostly as
possible. The book, I thought, should be the author’s — his or her life, thoughts, ideas, and, as far as possible, actual words. Hell, in the 30 or so books I have edited/ghosted, I’ve asked to keep my name even out of “acknowledgements” section. I figured if I want attention, I can write my own books, which I do.
The temptation is always there for a ghost to steal a little glory. I get that. But as the two cases under review suggest, the “author” always loses when the ghost insists on being seen. Prince Harry loses face from his dwindling supply of the same. Barack Obama loses sleep.
Married to a woman who talks way too much, the last thing Prince Harry needed was a ghostwriter who did the same, but he got one nonetheless. To be fair, J. R. Moehringer writes very well, but he gabs more than any ghostwriter ever should, way more.
