Hopefully they'll continue to damage the brand so over time fewer and fewer people coming-of-age politically are willing to adopt it.

As much as I absolutely despise McTurtle I really don't think he had a hand in the planning and orchestration of 1/6 like so many of his colleagues did. He was never viewed as a loyalist who went through the proper rituals of desecration at the altar of the golden Dump and entrusted with such vital secrets. But when all the secrets were revealed he went into full R defense fullback mode in the preservation of power

No, you don't. You just have to know and in part understand the Chinese diaspora, the "overseas Chinese."

They are mostly from around HK or are from Taiwan, with a good sprinkling of Mongol-descended peoples in there too because the Han are farking racist. And they are as anticommunist as ... well I was going to write the usual thing here but really there is no other thing as anticommunist. Even the Cubans in Miami aren't really on the same level. And they have good reason to be; MSS moves among those populations - yes here too, right under the noses of the stupid gwei lo - to engage in the time-honored arts of communist thugs everywhere. Extortion, bribery, coercion, beatings, kidnappings and rapes. The odd extrajudicial murder, even. 

And Yertle is not only an ardent anticommunist, he's extremely charming and gracious in person. (A story for another night, I think.) Politesse, in my experience, is highly valued among people of Chinese descent no matter which was their cradle language. Almost as much as ambition. 

Match made in Heaven the Heritage Institute, really.

O'Brien is expected to appear virtually before the panel on Friday, according to a source familiar with the probe. CNN has reached out to O'Brien.

What a virtual O'Brien interrogation might look like. I hope he suffers.

Elaine Chao is chronic corruption personified.

Endless series of unassailable lifetime foreign- and financial- powered unqualified nepotistic sinecure cabinet appointments and utterly-callous self-serving un-recused lazy conflict of interest unelected power over US policy for generations.

It's a little late for her to be boiled alive (damage to all of us already rendered for payment) but I wouldn't frown if she spilt a teapot scalding herself.

Then tripped and fell feet-first into a wood chipper.

The Martin County coal slurry spill was an accident that occurred after midnight on October 11, 2000 when the bottom of a coal slurry impoundment owned by Massey Energy in Martin County, Kentucky broke into an abandoned underground mine below.[1] The slurry came out of the mine openings, sending an estimated 306,000,000 US gallons (1.16×109 l; 255,000,000 imp gal) of slurry down two tributaries of the Tug Fork River. By morning, Wolf Creek was oozing with the black waste; on Coldwater Fork, a 10-foot (3.0 m) wide stream became a 100-yard (91 m) expanse of thick slurry.

The spill, which contained arsenic and mercury, killed everything in the water.[2] It was over five feet deep in places and covered nearby residents' yards. The spill polluted hundreds of miles (300-500 km) of the Big Sandy River and its tributaries and the Ohio River. The water supply for over 27,000 residents was contaminated, and all aquatic life in Coldwater Fork and Wolf Creek was killed. The spill was 30 times larger than the Exxon Valdez oil spill (12 million US gallons (45,000 m3)) and one of the worst environmental disasters ever in the southeastern United States, according to the United States Environmental Protection Agency.[3] The spill was exceeded in volume by the Kingston Fossil Plant coal fly ash slurry spill in 2008.

U.S. Secretary of Labor Elaine Chao, wife of Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), oversaw the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) at the time. In 2002, a federal penalty of $5,600 was levied against Massey Energy

Chao is a HUGE criminal, who should be in Federal Prison, but remains uncharged.  She diverted federal transportation money, in HUGE amounts, to Kentucky recipients in exchange for under the table contributions to Mitch's campaign and/or political favors to later be redeemed.

Johnny Chao, Elaine's father, owns a shipping company that has deep  tie to senior government officials in China he has used all of his daughters the way a medieval baron would and strategically married them off to politicians and people of influence around the world.  Elaine came with a $20 million "dowry"  Johnny bailed McConnell out of some disastrous commodities trades and Elaine was the price.   A die hard Trumper I knew who was one of her direct reports when she was labor secretary  called her "the single most incompetent HUMAN BEING I have ever worked with" and apparently the had to create a deputy secretary position to do her job and limited her to ribbon cuttings and the occasional speech...and she even botched that

Foremost Group - as American a company as exists and which mostly ships our ag products to China - has government contacts there, sure. So do I. So does everyone playing. You're not doing business there if you don't. And yes, the Confucian cultures - I'm kinda making up a term here, you proper anthro people please feel free to correct me - have a different sense of family obligation. No question.

But before you go hinting they're fifth columnists or whatever that was, I suggest you dig a little more. As I seem destined to repeat, Chao got his start shipping rice to Vietnam so the US military could feed people. I'm not sure how many Bangladeshi lives were saved when Foremost took upon themselves bringing in the rice during their famine; it was enough to get the UN on side but good, though. These games have been repeated several times. Chao Sr may be playing at medievalism or whatever - and I have zero doubt he pushed his less-capable daughter into government where she couldn't really damage the company (it's the sister who runs the show, now) - but in that regard he's surely not alone. Welcome to capitalism.

Now please explain why Chao gets the they-cannot-be-trusted routine and not, say, Jaime Dillon.
