#2 /\ Yes, there definitely appears to be a rift between Foggy Bottom, DoD, the Klingon's and the White House. The closing of the Agency's Eagle Base well prior to final events was a shocker. My guess is Biden's White House handlers, disgusted with Foggy Bottom and the Agency, went the ill-fated 9/11 celebration charade by themselves. Blinken's body language is one of fearful and embarrassed conspirator. Biden's body language presents blissful ignorance and acute Sun Downers serenade.

The totalitarian model would see these people suddenly disappear while a new calamitous crisis emerges to muster the media toward a new propaganda objective.

Look! Over there! A white supremacist from Compton!

And new COVID variants. (Did I say 'delta'? I meant gamma. Er, chi. I mean, sigma.)

#7 Did Menendez preface his remarks with "as a fellow pederast, I usually agree with President Biden... "
