Philip Geiger

 

LA JOLLA, CA  —  Philip Geiger, my one and only blog bro here at UrantianSojourn, graduated from life on Urantia Monday evening.  He had been in ICU for three weeks following a horrendous surgery to remove blockages from his lungs and to repair damage to his heart.  Faced with this terminal condition which gave him maybe a year to live and made it hard to catch a breath with even mild exertion, he opted for the surgery.  He saw it as a definite win-win situation: they could fix the worst of the problem with his material body— or he would wind up with a new one, on a new world.

Usually, an obituary gives you some perfunctory particulars of a person’s accomplishments during their brief sojourn on this planet, and a listing of relatives who “survive” the deceased.  They are written as if a person’s life has actually ended and now they cease to exist.   But Phil’s transit to the next stage of universe existence is the perfect instance to attempt to awaken those who might read this to the reality of the Father’s plan of universe ascension.

You see, Phil is a “Urantian”— a longtime student of The Urantia Book here, on the “World Of The Cross.”  And because he fully believed in the precious promise of eternal life presented through this amazing revelation, he knew that mortal identity on a world like ours is a very transient time-life condition in the universe, and he understood that no one knows how long they have here.  That’s why Phil was betting on a sure thing;  if he didn’t survive the operation— which at one point he was told it was a fifty-fifty proposition— his mortal identity, his soul and his spirit, would be transported and reassembled in a new form, on the next world in our ascendant careers.  Indeed, that is what has happened, and I would like to explain in more detail how that comes about, through insights from The Urantia Book.

The situation which makes repersonalization possible is brought about in “the resurrection halls of the receiving planets of a local universe.”*  Here in these life-assembly chambers the supervising authorities provide that relationship of universe energy— soul, mindal, and spiritual— which makes possible the reconsciousizing of the sleeping survivor.  The reassembly of the constituent parts of a onetime material personality involves:

The fabrication of a suitable form, a [soul] energy pattern, in which the new survivor can make contact with nonspiritual reality, and within which the [necessary] variant of the cosmic mind can be encircuited.

The return of the [Indwelling Spirit] to the waiting creature.  The [Indwelling Spirit] is the eternal custodian of your ascending identity;  your [Indwelling Spirit] is the absolute assurance that you yourself and not another will occupy the form created for your personality awakening.  And the [Indwelling Spirit] will be present at your personality reassembly to take up once more the role of Paradise guide to your surviving self.

When these prerequisites of repersonalization have been assembled, the seraphic custodian of the potentialities of the slumbering immortal soul, with the assistance of numerous cosmic personalities, bestows this entity upon and in the awaiting mind-body form while committing this evolutionary child of the Supreme to eternal association with the waiting [Indwelling Spirit].  And this completes the repersonalization, reassembly of memory, insight, and consciousness— identity.

The fact of repersonalization consists in the seizure of the encircuited [soul] phase of the newly segregated cosmic mind by the awakening human self.  The phenomenon of personality is dependent on the persistence of the identity of selfhood reaction to universe environment;  and this can only be effected through the medium of mind.

Selfhood persists in spite of a continuous change in all the factor components of self;  in the physical life the change is gradual;  at death, and upon repersonalization, the change is sudden.  The true reality of all selfhood (personality) is able to function responsively to universe conditions by virtue of the unceasing changing of its constituent parts;  stagnation terminates in inevitable death.  Human life is an endless change of the factors of life unified by the stability of the unchanging personality.

When you awaken on the mansion worlds of Jerusem, you will be so changed, the spiritual transformation will be so great that, were it not for your Thought Adjuster [indwelling Spirit] and the destiny guardian, who so fully connect up your new life in the new worlds with your old life in the first world, you would at first have difficulty in connecting the new … consciousness with the reviving memory of your previous identity. Notwithstanding the continuity of personal selfhood, much of the mortal life would at first seem to be a vague and hazy dream. But time will clarify many mortal associations.

The Thought Adjuster [indwelling Spirit] will recall and rehearse for you only those memories and experiences which are a part of, and essential to, your universe career. If the Adjuster has been a partner in the evolution of aught in the human mind, then will these worth-while experiences survive in the eternal consciousness of the Adjuster.

But much of your past life and its memories, having neither spiritual meaning nor morontia* value, will perish with the material brain; much of material experience will pass away as onetime scaffolding which, having bridged you over to the morontia* level, no longer serves a purpose in the universe.  But personality and the relationships between personalities are never scaffolding; mortal memory of personality relationships has cosmic value and will persist. On the mansion worlds you will know and be known, and more, you will remember, and be remembered by, your onetime associates in the short but intriguing life on Urantia.¹ 

But eternal life is a choice:  Our identity is real only in so far as any person elects to become a continuing universe phenomenon.  The Indwelling Spirit is truly our path to Paradise, but each of us must pursue that path by our own deciding and freewill choosing.  And it is this very power of choice— the universe insignia of freewill creaturehood— that constitutes our greatest opportunity, and in fact, our supreme cosmic responsibility.

Upon the sincerity of the mortal free will the divine Spirit within depends for eternal personality;  all will creatures are to experience one true opportunity to make one undoubted, self-conscious, and final choice;  the soul of man must and will be given full and ample opportunity to reveal its true intent and real purpose.

When the more spiritually and cosmically advanced mortals die on the worlds of time and space, they proceed immediately to the mansion worlds*;  the worlds where all who survive the life in the flesh initially continue their existence.  But most of us will be assigned to the ranks of the “sleeping survivors,” who will be repersonalized en masse at the end of the current planetary dispensation.  Regardless, our conscious experience of the moment of death is seamless;  the blink of an eye.  The second you “die,” is the second you awake in a new body.  It’s not unlike the experience of lost time under anesthesia: one second you’re headed to surgery, the next, you’re waking up after it’s over.
 
Of course, there are serious difficulties that hamper our efforts to understand just exactly what happens to us in death.  One of these difficulties consists in the impossibility of conveying to our level of comprehension an adequate description of a “transaction on the borderland of the physical and spiritual realms.”*   Sorry about that.    Another is brought about by the restrictions placed upon the revelators of truth by the celestial governing authorities of Urantia.  There are many interesting details which might have been presented in The Urantia Book, but our immediate planetary supervisors, sticklers all, nixed most of them.  They know who we are.  But they did say this much:

THE URANTIA BOOK:

There is something real, something of human evolution, something additional to the [Indwelling Spirit], which survives death.  This newly appearing entity is the soul, and it survives the death of both your physical body and your material mind.  This entity is the conjoint child of the combined life and efforts of the human you in liaison with the divine you, the [Indwelling Spirit].  This child of human and divine parentage constitutes the surviving element of terrestrial origin;  it is the immortal soul.

This child of persisting meaning and surviving value is wholly unconscious during the period from death to repersonalization and is in the keeping of the seraphic destiny guardian throughout this season of waiting.  You will not function as a conscious being, following death, until you attain the new consciousness of [soul] on the mansion worlds.

At death, the functional identity associated with the human personality is disrupted through the cessation of vital motion. Human personality, while transcending its constituent parts, is dependent on them for functional identity. The stoppage of life destroys the physical brain patterns for mind endowment, and the disruption of mind terminates mortal consciousness. The consciousness of that creature cannot subsequently reappear until a cosmic situation has been arranged which will permit the same human personality again to function in relationship with living energy.

During the transit of surviving mortals from the world of origin to the mansion worlds, whether they experience personality reassembly on the third period or ascend at the time of a group resurrection, the record of personality constitution is faithfully preserved by the archangels on their worlds of special activities.  These beings are not the custodians of personality (as the guardian seraphim are of the soul), but it is nonetheless true that every identifiable factor of personality is effectually safeguarded in the custody of these dependable trustees of mortal survival.  As to the exact whereabouts of mortal personality during the time intervening between death and survival, we do not know.

And when you thus awaken on the mansion worlds of Jerusem, you will be so changed, the spiritual transformation will be so great that, were it not for your [Indwelling Spirit] and the destiny guardian, who so fully connect up your new life in the new worlds with your old life in the first world, you would at first have difficulty in connecting your new consciousness with the reviving memory of your previous identity.  Notwithstanding the continuity of personal selfhood, much of the mortal life would at first seem to be a vague and hazy dream.  But time will clarify many mortal associations.

The [Indwelling Spirit] will recall and rehearse for you only those memories and experiences which are a part of, and essential to, your universe career.  If the [Indwelling Spirit] has been a partner in the evolution of aught in the human mind, then will these worth-while experiences survive in the eternal consciousness of the [Indwelling Spirit].  But much of your past life and its memories, having neither spiritual meaning nor survival value, will perish with the material brain; much of material experience will pass away as onetime scaffolding which, having bridged you over to the next level, no longer serves a purpose in the universe. But personality and the relationships between personalities are never scaffolding; mortal memory of personality relationships has cosmic value and will persist. On the mansion worlds you will know and be known, and more, you will remember, and be remembered by, your onetime associates in the short but intriguing life on Urantia.¹

Despite all that, and the joy it brings through the recognition of its truth, those of us who knew Phil in this life are still going to miss him and all the things we came to love about him.  But until we ourselves make this transition and are repersonalized, and stand in the presence of all those who’ve gone before us and those who have made such an amazing transition possible, we must continue to know these things through our living faith; which is exactly the way Phil lived his life here, and who has no doubt now realized these very truths in reality.

Until then. . .

The White Man's Burden

 

Vote up the White Man’s BURDEN, send forth the best ye breed
Go bind your sons to exile, to serve your Captain’s need;
To wait in heavy harness, on floundered folk and cries—
Your brain-dead, angry people, half devil and half lies.

Vote up the White Man’s BURDEN, in hatred to abide,
To veil the threat of terror and make a show of pride;
By open speech and twitter, a thousand times made plain
To seek another’s profit, and steal another’s gain.

Throw up the White Man’s BURDEN, his savage wars of “peace”—
Fill up your mouth with Famine and swallow his sick Grease;
And when your goal is nearest the end for others sought,
Watch his narcissistic Folly bring all your hopes to nought.

BREAKING: Ignorance Is Not A Virtue

“Ignorance is not a virtue …
It’s not cool to not know what you’re talkin’ about.”

That’s not “Keepin’ it real,” or “Tellin’ it like it is,”
that’s not “challenging political correctness,”
that’s just not knowin’ what you’re talkin’ about.

A LOT OF PEOPLE are going to be shocked by this news.  Especially the 40% of eligible voters who never quite drag their sorry asses to the vicinity of an election ballot and exercise their chief responsibility as a citizen of our nation: voting.  You know who you are.

If you don’t vote, you’re not only not a good citizen— you’re a bad one, and a drag on our system.  If it were up to me, you’d catch a heavy (sliding scale based on income) fine every time you blew off an election.  Don’t effin’ care if you write in your mother every single time, but it would be too financially painful not to vote.  But remember, I’m talking about “eligible voters,” not Fox News troglodytes;  people simply must be intelligent enough and educated sufficiently to pass a mandatory citizenship training course— required of anyone wanting to be an eligible voter.

President Obama will soon be on the stump again, campaigning for the democratic nominee, and continuing to  eviscerate climate deniers and no-nothings everywhere.  But right now he’s making sure his presidency is “Trump proof“— because he knows 40% of voting age Americans don’t bother to participate in their own government, and that just might result in an electoral catastrophe in November.

You can help make sure Barack Obama’s presidency is Trump proof too, by voting against the only short-fingered vulgarian in the race.  Because that’s what it must come down to;  you either understand what a completely unfit candidate Trump is, or you don’t.  Do the troglodytes who vote outnumber those of us who understand?  They just might;  especially if we don’t have the personal astuteness to make sure we don’t sit back and let this happen by not voting.

Be a real American.  VOTE.

 

Clintonialism II: Honduras Edition

QueenHillaryShort

Hillary’s foreign policy duds 

In our previous post on Clintonialsim, we highlighted former Senator Hillary Clinton‘s vote for the catastrophic Iraq invasion and the subsequent occupation and nation building  fiasco that followed. And her role as Secretary of State in support of two equally disastrous Middle East interventions: Libya and Syria. But her record as a neo necon doesn’t stop there. She has also left her imprimatur on Central America, specifically Honduras. But before we go there, let’s take a brief look at US interventionism in Central America over the last one hundred years.

US Intervention in Central America

The history of US interventionism is Central America is a long and depressing one. It includes:

-The occupation of the Dominican Republic (1916-1924).

-The US invasion of Guatemala (1954).  

-The creation of US trained death squads in El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras (1980s), which saw the transfer of $6 billion of US taxpayer money to El Salvador alone.

-The the notorious Iran-Contra Affair under President Reagan (1985), which precipitated the disastrous crack cocaine epidemic that afflicted south Los Angeles that: resulted in an upsurge of ghetto gangs, that were in turn franchised across the rest of the country; made felons of so many young black Americans for just smoking the stuff;  and provided advanced missiles to a listed “terrorist” country,  Iran. (Thank you, Ollie North.)

-The wag-the-dog invasion of Grenada, ordered by Reagan in order to change the news cycle after the catastrophic (and politically embarrassing) car bombing in Beirut that resulted in the death of 241 US Marines; and the subsequent retreat of American forces from Lebanon

-The invasion of Panama, aka Operation Just Cause, ordered by Reagan’s former vice president and former CIA Director, George H. W. Bush, to apprehend a long time CIA operative and drug kingpin, Manuel “Pineapple Face” Noriega. 

Rather than seeing this sorry past as an indictment of American foreign policy, Clinton supporters will try to spin it along the lines of:

“See? This is the way America has been doing business around the world since before Hillary was even born! Hillary is just the latest player in The Great Game. No blame. Just ask her self-professed mentor, Henry Kissinger. Nothing to see here. Move on. Move on.”

But it’s high time an accounting was made. What better time than the present, in this truly revolutionary presidential election year, when two of the top three contenders are outsiders whose strength is derived from their break with The Powers That Be and their bloody past?

The Practice of Clintonialism in Honduras

Remember the huge outflow of refugees from Central America, including children from Honduras, that landed square on the US’s backdoor with Mexico in 2009? Remember the Obama Administration’s response to videos showing them clinging to the top of trains traversing Mexico in a desperate attempt to get to the U.S., fleeing from the chaos of drug lords gone wild in their native countries? The tens of millions of dollars in bribe money Obama paid to the Mexican government to stop those kids at their own southern border from fleeing the terror that Hillary helped unleash? That prompted Angelina Jolie, in a collaboration with the Microsoft Corporation and 25 leading U.S. law firms, to create Kids in Need of Defense (KIND)? (KIND provides free legal aid to unaccompanied minors in immigration proceedings across the U.S.)  Remember Hillary’s self-anointed role as Protectoress of Children that she continues to project as part of her political persona?

JUCHITAN, MEXICO - AUGUST 06: Central American immigrants ride north on top of a freight train on August 6, 2013 near Juchitan, Mexico. Thousands of Central American migrants ride the trains, known as 'la bestia', or the beast, during their long and perilous journey through Mexico to reach the U.S. border. Some of the immigrants are robbed and assaulted by gangs who control the train tops, while others fall asleep and tumble down, losing limbs or perishing under the wheels of the trains. Only a fraction of the immigrants who start the journey in Central America will traverse Mexico completely unscathed - and all this before illegally entering the United States and facing the considerable U.S. border security apparatus designed to track, detain and deport them.

Hillary’s Support of the 2009 Honduras Coup

In 2006, the liberal candidate for president of Honduras, José Manuel Zelaya Rosales, was elected to office.  In 2009, he proposed a non-binding poll that had as its goal the holding of a referendum to rewrite the Honduran constitution. Naturally, this was considered the end of the world by the Honduran elites, who were profiting quite handsomely from the status quo― thank you very much. Their response was to use the military to remove Zelaya from office. The coup succeeded, sending him into exile.

Questions about the role of the US in the coup emerged immediately, not surprising given its record of reckless interventionism in that region of the world. In an article by The Nation magazine titled The Clinton-Backed Honduran Regime Is Picking Off Indigenous Leaders, its author Greg Grandin wrote the following about the murder of Berta Cáceres, a native Honduran activist.

Cáceres was a vocal and brave indigenous leader, an opponent of the 2009 Honduran coup that Hillary Clinton, as secretary of state, made possible. In The Nation, Dana Frank and I covered that coup as it unfolded. Later, as Clinton’s emails were released, others, such as Robert Naiman, Mark Weisbrot, and Alex Main, revealed the central role she played in undercutting Manuel Zelaya, the deposed president, and undercutting the opposition movement demanding his restoration. In so doing, Clinton allied with the worst sectors of Honduran society.

(Much of the damning info Grandin relied on came from the infamous Clinton emails. Why the Hillary Haters ignore that dimension of the email drama is a reflection of their own interventionist proclivities. Their obsession with Benghazi is an attempt to degrade Clinton’s credibility as a leader and not on the substantive issue of whether the decision to overthrow Qadaffi was a good one.  To these hammerheads, everything looks like a nail.)

In an article from March of this year, LatinoUSA.org writes that reporter Roberto Lovato:

…shared a 2014 video in Spanish, where Cáceres made specific reference to Clinton’s Hard Choices comments about Honduras. In an interview from Buenos Aires, Cáceres said that the 2009 policy decisions by Secretary Clinton and the United States only led to more repression, militarization, increased migration and political corruption in her country.

So who was Clinton’s cat’s paw in the ouster of Honduras’s  democratically elected president? Why, her old Yale Law School pal and 2008 presidential campaign surrogate, Lanny “The Fixer” Davis. Davis, who worked in the Clinton Administration as a special counsel, gained notoriety for spearheading Hubbie Bill’s counter-attack against “that woman, Monica Lewinsky. Davis subsequently found gainful employment representing the interests of a plethora of foreign scum that, according to Wikipedia, included:

…the Ivory Coast strongman and flagrant human rights violator Laurent Gbagbo whose claims to that country’s presidency have been condemned by the international community and may even set off a civil war;” and “Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, the longtime dictator of oil-rich Equatorial Guinea.

In 2009, Davis expanded his client list to include the Honduran Business Council, which financed the coup d’etat that sent Zelaya into exile and precipitated a mass exodus of Honduran refugees.

According to The Intercept:

At a time when the State Department strategized over how best to keep Zelaya out of power while not explicitly endorsing the coup, Clinton suggested using longtime Clinton confidant Lanny Davis as a back-channel to Roberto Micheletti, the interim president installed after the coup….

A week later, Clinton and her top aides reportedly brokered a deal to bring Zelaya back to power through a national unity government. But the deal was no “breakthrough,” as some media outlets reported. Rather, there was a huge loophole…

The election, on November 29, 2009, was beset by violence, with anti-coup organizers murdered before the election and the police violently suppressing an opposition rally in San Pedro Sula and shutting down left-leaning media outlets. Major international observers, including the United Nations and the Carter Center, as well as most major opposition candidates, boycotted the election…

Rather than seeing this as a failure, the Clinton emails released last week further confirm that the State Department had sought the permanent ouster of Zelaya all along. State Department officials bucked the demands of most Latin American countries and rushed to recognize the election as “free, fair and transparent.”…The Shannon emails “show what we knew all along: the U.S. wanted the elections to solidify the changes wrought by the coup,”

Despite claims to media outlets that they were working to restore the democratically elected Honduran government, the U.S. made other efforts to ensure the coup government’s grip on power. In October 2009, the United States blocked a resolution from the Organization of American States requiring Zelaya’s return as a precondition for elections. The U.S. also failed to officially determine that a “military coup” occurred, and did not cut off aid to Honduras as is required by law following a coup.

An August 2009 email chain with Harold Koh, then the State Department legal adviser, discussed how to deal with the foreign aid issue, which in Honduras is largely administered through the Millenium Challenge Corporation. The email chain carried the subject line “Honduras Military Coup Decision,” includes an email from Koh noting that Honduras might fall under “specified legal prohibitions on assistance.” Koh wrote that Secretary Clinton, as chair of the MCC board, would have a considerable voice over the determination of Honduras as a coup country. Unfortunately, much of the memo Koh prepared is redacted and Clinton’s response is not revealed in the email chain.

Reminds one of the Machiavellian antics of Hillary’s mentor and personal friend, Henry Kissinger, whose sneering disdain of human rights is well documented; and who engineered the overthrow of Chile’s democratically elected president, Salvador Allende (that ultimately led to his assisnation)and  whom Christopher Hitchins designated a war criminal for his role in the overthrow of the democratically elected government of Chile, among other international crimes, including his role in precipitating the secret war in Cambodia that resulted in untold suffering, death, and displacement of millions of innocent Cambodians. (God help us all, but apparently Kissinger has agreed to meet with Donald Trump tomorrow. That gigantic turd just won’t flush.) Truly, a rotten apple doesn’t fall far from its progenitor’s tree.

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

Notice to those considering the November presidential election as a vote for the lesser of two weevils.  Choosing Clinton is to agree to yet another round of US interventionism. The doctrines of Might Makes Right, Manifest Destiny, and American Exceptionalism, personified by war criminal Henry Kissinger, are all part of the Clinton ethos.

Careful what you ask/vote for.

Troubled Teen Trump Actually Knew Clark Kent

Teen Trump & Clark Kent

A chubby brown-shirted Trump gets defensive over his eating habits with a young Steven Colbert Clark Kent in the New York Military Academy cafeteria.*

STUMPDIGIT, SOUTH CAROLINA —  In 1983, Fred Trump told an interviewer that his son Donald “was a pretty rough fellow when he was small.”  But as a board member of Kew-Forest School, daddy Trump couldn’t allow Donald’s behavioral problems to go um, “unpunished”;  he fixed that behavior problem by sending little Donnie off to a correctional facility military school, the New York Military Academy.

During his senior year, Trump wore a uniform, “winning” the rank of captain.

Michael E. Miller

[T]he moment 17-year-old Donald Trump was named a captain for his senior year at New York Military Academy, he ordered the officers under his command to keep strict discipline.  Shoes had to be shined.  Beds had to be made.  Underclassmen had to spring to attention.

Then he disappeared into his room, delegating authority for his minions’ behavior to his officers.  Not what you would call a “hands-on” sorta guy;  (what with those stumpy digits and all).

Long story short, it depends on who you believe to determine just what shade of rose Captain Donnie‘s glasses were.  And Ima let you sort that feces out for yourself.  But it’s no surprise that there are real differences in the way a classic narcissist remembers things, and the way, shall we say, more normal people who were also there, remember.


I’m struck by the simplistically self-absorbed way Trump talks about himself, his own inarticulate braggadocio notwithstanding, that he “Has the best words.”
Some quotes from Miller’s article about Trump’s “military service” as a high school kid/cadet, are instructive and revealing.

I had total control over the cadets … that’s why I got a promotion — because I did so good.”

“Total control.”  Over fifteen and sixteen year old boys.  He did sooo good.  Except for a hazing incident by some under his command—which apparently got him transferred away from command.

Trump claimed the transfer “…was a promotion for me, and it was a demotion for [the other guy].”  Anyone who knows something about real military culture— not military prep school— or what is widely known as common sense, knows that a desk job under the watchful eyes of your superior officers is generally not seen as a step up from the command of living human beings.  A sailor would simply tell you, you got “shit-canned.”

Although it’s hard to know how Trump’s family wealth had anything to do with it, some think it did.  “He was definitely privileged,” said Douglas Reichel, who was a year behind Trump at the academy  and a member of A Company. “That group of people got treated much differently.  They got promoted each year.”

“I did very well under the military system,” Trump says.  “I became one of the top guys at the whole school.”  A training officer at the school who became Trump’s mentor, says Trump “…wanted to be number one.  He wanted to be noticed.  He wanted to be recognized.  And he liked compliments.”

I was always good at that school,” he said.

Indeed.  One of the “top guys.”   Using the “best words.”   Because he just did “so good.”

“Take a look at the pictures.  I’m standing at the head of the whole place.”

Yes.  Do take a look at the pictures;  see that “top guy” character just leap off the photos, into your head, boring right through your cortical overlay.  Because

Narcissistic Personality Disorder is a mental disorder in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance [one of the top guys], a deep need for admiration and a lack of empathy for others.  But behind this mask of ultra-confidence lies a fragile self-esteem that’s vulnerable to the slightest criticism [he was promoted— not transferred].

A Narcissistic personality disorder causes problems in many areas of life, such as relationships [multiple failed marriages], work [I did so good], school [demoted? out of the barracks], or financial affairs [multiple bankruptcies].  You may be generally unhappy and disappointed when you’re not given the special favors or admiration you believe you deserve [and lash out at EVERYONE]=.  Others may not enjoy being around you, and you may find your relationships unfulfilling.   —The Mayo Clinic

WHERE’S BILL?

sTrumpetOh come on.  Don’t try to tell me you didn’t know this kind of stuff would come out of the woodwork once “The (Prima) Donald” became the presump.  But if it makes you feel better, just pretend it’s a photoshop.¹

 

ACUNA, MEXICO —   Ciudad Acuña is the fastest growing city in Mexico you’ve never heard of.  You wouldn’t know it, to look at what’s left of the place after an F3* fucked the place up a few years ago;  but more than a couple United States presidents have nom nomed tacos in this town.

For some dam reason there was Dwight, then LBJ, then Tricky Dick, and finally, “Beeel.”  You know Bill;  Hillary‘s “Bill.”  Hillary Bill. Hillary Billary.  Billary.  Huh.


Where's BillAnyway, so “Wherrre’s Beeeel.”  Well.  Bill’s been hidin’.  In Acuña.  Where the living is cheap, the tacos are fresh, and the womens are friendly.  Now now;  I know what you’re thinking;  but some say Bill’s not nearly as “undisciplined” as he once was.  At least not all the time.  He’s still gotta little mojo squirrelled away in a not-so-secret account presidents call “political capital.”

That’s a euphemism for political credit, of course, thus Bill be chillin’ on that cred until Hill brings home the political bacon in November.  Still, being a “spousal campaign surrogate” is hard work, so he’ll be hittin’ up some Jersey boys and girls this Friday.  Because:  too much money flowing into the Clinton Foundation campaign coffers is not a real thing.

So once he gets the toiletries squared away back in his old bathroom, expect to see the “First Dude” doing a lot of globetrotting;  instead of just loitering around the Oval pushing KFC secret-recipe through his pyloric sphincter.  He’ll soon be a special V.I.P. U.S. envoy, sent by Hillary on peacemaking expeditions, diplomatic vacations, or even trouble-shooting jaunts to those many war-torn, oil-producing, shitstorm nations drowning in riyals and dinars.  It’s also possible he’ll be in full philanthropy mode for his the family’s private foundation.

Who knows;  he may even see daddy Estaban, again.
