n Witches, Midwives & Nurses Barbara Ehrenreich and Deirdre English described witch hunting as “a ruling class campaign of terror directed against the female peasant population.” They explain that witch hunting did not arise organically from the citizenry but rather, were, “well organized campaigns, initiated, financed and executed by the Church and State.”

All of that is to say that witch hunts happen when those with governmental power attack those without, not the other way around. (This holds up when people refer to Senator McCarthy and his House Un-American Activities Committee’s attempt to find American Communists in the 1950’s, which lead to the blacklisting and persecution of ordinary Americans that had no connection to the Communist party.)

 What you gotta do with a Witch is, you have to burn them into ash and then mix the ash with Salt.  About 1/10 ratio.  

Then you take salt and  you have to spread it out over wide areas.  

Only way to be sure.

First came the failed lawsuits after the election alleging voting-machine tampering. Then there was the doomed celebrity effort to convince some state electors not to follow their constitutional duty and to deny Trump the presidency — a gambit that, had it worked, would have wrecked the Constitution. Then came the pathetic congressional boycott of the inauguration and the shrill nationwide protests against the president.

Next was the sad effort to introduce articles of impeachment. After that came weird attempts to cite Trump for violations of the emoluments clause of the Constitution. That puerile con was followed by plans to declare him deranged and mentally unfit so that he could be removed under the 25th Amendment. From time to time, Obama holdovers in the DOJ, National Security Council, and FBI sought to leak information, or they refused to carry out presidential orders.

Robert Mueller and his “dream team” were long ago supposed to have discovered proof of Trump’s collusion with Russia. A year later, they have found nothing much to do with this mandate. Then the alternative scent was obstruction of justice. Then the chase took another detour to follow some sort of fraud or racketeering. Now the FBI is reduced to raiding Trump’s lawyer in an effort to root out the real story on Stormy Daniels. One wonders what might have happened had Michael Cohen panicked and destroyed 30,000 emails before Mueller seized his computers. No matter, Mueller’s legal army presses on, even as it leaves its own wounded on the battlefield, as resignations, reassignments, and retirements for improper conduct decimate the Obama-era FBI and DOJ hierarchies.

That would do wonders for many of our public schools, too.
