Stage Three: Bargaining

Stage Four: Depression

A popular podcast called “Mueller, She Wrote,” which is streamed up to 200,000 times a week, calls its Russia-obsessed fans Muellerites. One of the three hosts, a California comedian who goes by A. G. and has a tattoo of Mr. Mueller’s silhouette on her arm, said the community was in what could only be described as a collective state of muted shock.

“I’ve had to talk a couple people off the ledge,” she said.

One fan of the podcast, Anne Craig-Tillmond, said she wants to see the full report before she’s “completely deflated.”

“I’ve been emotionally invested from the start, and was I let down by what Barr said? Absolutely,” Ms. Craig-Tillmond said. “Was I let down by what Mueller said? I don’t know what he said.”

The Facebook page of the Robert Mueller Fan Club says on its “About” page, “All hail Robert Mueller — through his work we shall be delivered from this ignorance and evil we suffer.” Barbara Llewellyn, a retired real estate agent from Naperville, Ill., had written “Hallelujah” on the page. But by Monday, she had changed her tune.

“The trouble [with injustice] is that once you see it, you can’t unsee it. And once you’ve seen it, keeping quiet, saying nothing, becomes as political an act as speaking out. There is no innocence. Either way, you’re accountable.”
-- Arundhati Roy

As long as there's a dime to be squeezed out of this...

Honestly, I'm shocked how long they're staying in that Egyptian River...

While some people are more susceptible than others, the willing participant of the media's "shaping the narrative" can actually experience having their brain patterns "shaped" as well, which then manifests itself in behavior not characteristic in that person prior to the persistent participation in media saturation.

I am so angry that this charade has been perpetuated upon the American people for over two years with the net effect of sucking all the air out of real and meaningful issues. It has also brought the US and Russia into a new Cold War and closer to nuclear annihilation than ever.

If it is really about Trump's business dealings, then they should have made it about that. But they chose to make it about Russia which was a dangerous game of chicken being played between two nuclear powers. These people should be publicly shamed and banned forever from calling themselves journalists. And they refuse to give it up. Rachel Maddow has proven that $10 million per year is all she needed to become the foremost propagandist on television. And she is still peddling that sh*t.

IMHO, this is and never really was about Trump as their primary purpose for launching this dangerous plan. It began as a coverup for Her Heinous losing the easiest Presidential election in history to an orange carnival barker and con man. The book Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton's Doomed Campaign recounts how the night of Clinton's defeat, Robbie Mook and John Podesta concocted the plan to blame it on Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

That strategy had been set within twenty-four hours of her concession speech. Mook and Podesta assembled her communications team at the Brooklyn headquarters to engineer the case that the election wasn’t entirely on the up-and-up. For a couple of hours, with Shake Shack containers littering the room, they went over the script they would pitch to the press and the public. Already, Russian hacking was the centerpiece of the argument.

Meanwhile all this air time has been wasted while our planet is rapidly becoming inhabitable for living things and the country is being bankrupted by endless wars and massive tax cuts for the wealthiest individuals and corporations among us.

the new line is that Mueller has outsourced the indictments!

from a good friend of mine who shared this:

Mueller is playing a much smarter game than Trump will ever know. Saw this posted earlier. According to a new report from the New York Times. Mueller has farmed out federal indictments to 1) the SDNY, in Manhattan, 2) the EDNY, in Brooklyn, 3) the EDVA in Virginia, 4) the U.S. Attorney’s office in Los Angeles, 5) the U.S. Attorney’s office in Washington DC, 6) the DOJ National Security Division, and 7) the DOJ Criminal Division.

I love the guy but uh....

Of the 12th dimensional chess game we always hear about from people whose blimp sized bubble just burst in their face.

Pure speculation, I'm assuming, derived from the media's perpetuation of this behemoth ratings generator.

IOW, denial.
