Is it just me or do other people’s mouths not open and close like goldfish every time I see or hear a sentence including the words, “the FBI are investigating…”? The levels of corruption are so endemic in US corridors of power, law and security that the whole system is almost completely beyond sensible perception. In other words, the FBI or the CIA investigating anything whatsoever cannot be taken seriously. It’s all about individual and small group pods of power at this stage, see who comes out on top.
Pretty soon those at higher levels will start to eat each other, only surprise so far is that we haven’t heard of many lower down the chain “disappearing”, though no doubt they have.
For Ireland, it doesn’t bode well that we have wedded ourselves so much to the USA in terms of role-modelling and influence, not to mention direct dealing.
In any case the US and much of the western world are pretty much run by those in charge of large corporations. Be interesting to see who emerges ‘on top’, though it looks more likely we will see a big break-down and power struggle first. I wouldn’t rule out a military coup.
