What is happening today in the political arena goes well beyond the extraordinary imagination of Orwell or Verne or Lucas or even Baldacci. But this stuff has to be scripted by a like mind or cabal of like minds. And if none of this bothers you, you must be completely ignorant, still trippin’ from the 60s or on some of the hybrid mind altering synthetics of today.
Lately, I’ve been reading some articles and listening to news reports from lesser known outlets describing the death of former head of the United Nations General Assembly, John Ashe. This might be straight out of a Columbo mystery. John Ashe died an “accidental death”.
Ashe, 61, was scheduled to testify on federal bribery charges within days of his “accidental” death. He died while working out in his home gym. His death was due to “traumatic asphyxia with laryngeal cartilage fractures while lifting a barbell on bench” (read: he was strangled). The stories state that he had a mild heart condition that could have contributed to his death. A complete autopsy won’t be available for about 16 weeks.
The fact that Ashe was tied to the Clintons via foreign money collectors Ng Lap Seng and Charlie Trie and was facing charges of federal bribery I’m sure had nothing to do with his demise. Though Ashe’s scheduled testimony had nothing to do with the Clintons, speculation has it that it could have inadvertently led to a rotary connection of corruption between the pair, Seng and Trie.
Timeliness? Ashe’s testimony was scheduled for the following Monday, five days hence.
The Clintons have lost so many friends, advisors and donors over the years under highly suspicious circumstances that most college 1yearbooks would overflow with their pictures. For the sake of bulk and ease of handling, a second volume might include the pictures and bios of the reporters, sheriff deputies, detectives and other investigators seeking criminal information about the Clintons. It’s entirely coincidental, I’m sure, that every one of the unfortunate many were cronies, partners, or in some way tied to or rooting information about one or more of the myriad scandals associated with Bill and Hillary.
Though without any connection, this “accident” follows the death of the conservative constitutionalist Supreme Court judge, Samuel Alito. His death “by natural causes” (though no autopsy was performed) happened with sufficient time remaining in Obama’s final term to appoint another socialist activist to the bench; a legacy appointment. Other than the normal ailments that come with age (Alito was only 66), he was also in relatively good health, enjoying a vacation at the time of his demise.
The beat goes on. Did you take your pill today?
