Beholding the Illusion of the Hand Being Quicker Than the Eye

in response to reader comment: Stolen is in the Eye of the Beholder

All allegations aside, what now appears to be a fait accompli is emerging as circumstances that were no longer avoidable are here; there appearing to be complicit actions on both ends of the former American political spectrum; and no effort being spared by the victors to ensure a lasting legacy of a failed American political experiment.

After all, Americans are human, are they not; all forms of political passions were on full display and Republican complacency lost: why? Because complacent republican politicians could not afford the truth of their actions of squandering American blood and treasure being found out.

Political slight of hand is not, repeat, is not endemic alone to democratic hostiles to the Constitution alone. ALL Judicial eyes were looking in; they needed not be present; but worse, what was visible was not interesting to them either. They could not have cared less and their demeanor towards that hurt 'we the people.'

As for American political endeavors in the future, the advise here is 'do not hold your breath.' The phrase, 'nothing to see here' is a complicit complacent republican mantra now. Nothing political will be trustworthy in the American context.

And those former allies that hoped for a better future under the previous 45th administration better be more careful on what they used to hope upon; for there are no promises left to be kept; the illusion has not/will not be stopped.
