Is the Hive breaking up with Bill and Hillary?
The disciplined drones and diligent worker bees of the Hive do the Queen's* bidding, but they also provide feedback to the Queen from the world outside the Hive. This, in turn, informs the Queen's future instructions.
For a quarter-century the Hive has viciously swarmed anyone who dared describe Bill Clinton as a sexual predator and Hillary as his enabler. No more. The dam has been breached and the truth bared. If Bill Clinton's conduct does not fit the definition of a sexual predator, then the term is meaningless. If Hillary – in defending him, covering for him, lying for him, and besmirching his victims – is not an enabler, who is?
I think a couple things may be going on here. The strength of the Hive has waned, and its ability to control the narrative is in decline. Donald Trump, of all people, has proven too strong a force to be ignored. Even though, 20 years ago, alternative media was still in its infancy, one of its pioneers, Matt Drudge, was nonetheless able to break through the Hive's defenses and expose the Lewinsky affair. Today it's so strong it can occasionally overcome the Hive.
The Queen made a fateful decision in the spring of 1992, when Gennifer Flowers revealed her affair with Clinton. He was the only hope the Democrats had that year, and it was determined that he must be protected. The post-Super Bowl 60 Minutes interview, the pretty in pink press conference, the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy – all the stops were pulled. The Queen and the Hive went all in on Clinton, and they've been stuck with him ever since.
Until now. It's as though they're getting tired. The damned Clintons still keep up their outrageous behavior, and keep expecting the Queen to cover for them. It takes a lot of time and energy to destroy the Clintons' critics, and it's getting old. And then there's all the tawdriness associated with the criminal enterprise known as the Clinton Foundation, and being dead broke, and the $200,000 speaking fees from any schmuck who'll pay, and the Benghazi lies, and the email fiasco, and the overweening sense of entitlement, and on and on. It's just too much.
You get the sense that even the Queen is getting sick of it all.
And then there are people like Joseph DiGenova and R. Emmett Tyrell, Jr. – people you can't just ignore – saying that the FBI is going to recommend indicting her. This has got to temper your enthusiasm in coming to her defense.
I've talked about black swans, like Timothy McVeigh, and how they can change the political dynamic. A Hillary indictment would be a golden swan, virtually guaranteeing a landslide win for any Republican, Trump included.
While I respect DiGenova and Tyrrell, I'm not a buyer. Obama won't let it happen. He'd rather take the heat from FBI director Comey's resignation. Nixon fired Archibald Cox, and Obama can fire anybody who wants to indict Hillary. I suppose there's a scenario where Obama would hang Hillary out to dry, but thinking that through would require delving into the deep reaches of Obama's psyche, something I'm unwilling to do.
Bill Clinton is a despicable man, like all sexual predators. He's also a coward, as the record of his predation shows. Approaching women in the manner he did to, say, Paula Jones is dangerous. Women like Paula may have boyfriends or fathers or brothers who would be willing to physically assault anyone who behaved as Clinton did. I know guys like that. Bones get broken. But Clinton waited until he was the governor of Arkansas to unleash his inner predator and was thus assured of state trooper protection from any retaliation. As I've said before. He's a punk.
A punk embraced, quite recently, with open arms by all the Bushes, 1, 2, and 3. He's such a great guy, they love hanging out with him.
And these are the people who are supposed to have class?
I’ll stick with my friends in flyover country.
