TERRANCE GAVAN – MEDDLESOME PRIEST
The best quote, in my opinion, to rise from the ash of the James Comey testimony came from the ex-FBI Director.
The phrase was uttered by James Comey, the former F.B.I. director, during his testimony on Thursday before the Senate Judiciary Committee. When he was asked if he took President Trump’s “hope” that he would drop the Flynn-Russia investigation “as a directive,” Mr. Comey responded, “Yes, yes. It rings in my ears as kind of ‘Will no one rid me of this meddlesome priest?’ ”
These are the words that King Henry II of England allegedly cried out in 1170, frustrated by the political opposition of Thomas Becket, archbishop of Canterbury. Four royal knights immediately rushed off to Canterbury and murdered the meddlesome priest. (New York Times)
Comey cited Shakespeare to clarify his own position in relation to a barbed interrogative from Republican Senator James E. Risch who asked rather pointedly if the president had said “I hope you could set this aside.” His gargled implication being that the president had not actually ordered to do it. Comey of course reasserted that the president had asked everyone including attorney general Beauregard Sessions to leave the room. And that wor hope was brought into perspective.
When Senator James E. Risch, a Republican, noted that the president had merely “hoped for an outcome,” Mr. Comey replied, “I mean, this is the president of the United States, with me alone, saying ‘I hope this.’ I took it as, this is what he wants me to do.”
The aspiration begets the crime here. When a president of the USA opines?
The president demands a course. From the plebeian hoards. I would like a result because I am the president.
In this case the plebe, Comey, was asked point blank to fail. To fail? Yes. To fail in his pledge to the American people. To fail his oath to perform his duty unencumbered by any duty to the Queen. The Queen? Donald Trump, who by asking for loyalty to his office has usurped government by the people for the people.
If it looks like a duck and shits like a duck?
It’s a Queen.
When a Queen asks a favour from her knight?
She expects that request to be followed. Precedent stands.
“Will you, James Comey, deliver me from this meddlesome feast?” asked The Queen, Donald Trump.
She, Donald Trump expected a result.
When the result did not follow forthwith?
She told her meddlesome freaks, Beauregard Sessions and Rocket Rod Rosenstein to lop off his head.
This is not hard science here folks.
It’s simple. Bring me the priest. Lop off his head.
Comey was fired.
The dark knight is and was and remains: Rosenstein. As in Stein not steen.
