I had a couple quick immediate thoughts when the news of former Republican House Speaker Dennis Hastert's indictment popped in the news.
First off, while I'm pontificating on previous warnings . . . I remember long ago saying that one of the big red flags to watch for which will be a sign that we are close to the big hammer (and sickle) coming down . . . is that high level people will "taken out". It will be shocking, surprising . . . the types of usually untouchable players--how they are suddenly no longer "protected". I said watch for swift and high profile purges. . . . This always is the pattern when the takeover regime is getting ready to throw all its cards finally out on the table.
It serves a couple of purposes. One, is to get rid of fellow travelers who now know too much and need to be gotten rid of. It also can be a means to eliminate competition in the coup solidification.
And it also serves to warn others that they better play ball or else.
I heard someone say recently that it is as if the devil is reigning in all the lessor demons, done with their dirty work, to establish after all that HE is the big kahuna--the one running the show.
The military purges have already begun some time ago. These have been more behind the scenes and are logistically oriented. The head of the snake needs to early as possible put in place loyal minions and dispatch unreliable ones from the prior regimes--especially those who might actually oppose. Apparently the Navy has still been able to hold out against much of this, but the other branches of the military have been fairly well gutted and replaced at the leadership levels.
The more cultural/media targets--take outs--have also begun, ie., Breitbart, Hastings, Dinesh D'Souza, David Crowley, Brittney Murphy, Brian Williams?, etc., and no doubt, behind the scenes many have been threatened, blackmailed . . . and are keeping their heads down now. I expect more high profile incidents--of big media types, commentators, online personalities . . . to be targeted as the thing progresses.
And then, of course, there are the politicians who will be, and are being . . . taken down. I don't doubt that besides criminal indictments, smearings etc., that some will be outright "taken out" to put visceral fear in any who might dare effectively try to oppose the regime.
In general, high profile purges . . . which raise even the common eyebrow . . . are a sign that the noose is sufficiently tightened and the chair's about to be kicked out.
That was one line of thought. . . .
The other is something I regularly observe.
Now, it is only rumor at this point, but word is . . . is that Hastert had some type of "indiscretions" long ago with high school wrestler's and has been being blackmailed over it for years. If this is not the case then let's take the cases of all the pedophile priests--the majority being homosexual or bisexual molesters. The left wing always shouts, "SEE! Religion is a sham. You Christian's, you "conservatives" are corrupt, perverse hypocrites!" And the opportunity is taken to smear the religious or conservative ideology of the perps.
My thought is . . . why is it never said, "SEE! Homosexuals are corrupt, perverse hypocrites! Look how they infiltrate religious institutions and politics in order to do their dirty deeds!"
Rather, ie., than say "look at the evil conservative!" or "look at the evil priest or pastor!" . . . why is it never "look at the evil homosexual" who disguised himself as the "conservative" or priest or pastor?
Well, of course, we know why . . . one of the demonic realm's favorite strategies is misdirection . . . but I can't help noticing that once again in passing. . . .
