It'll Happen

Like a big earthquake or a bad hurricane, a terrorist attack inside USAmerica Inc is a matter of when not if.

When it happens, it's likely we'll see a big push towards the Daddy State - a massive transference of power to the Executive.

And keep in mind these few tidbits from Andrew Restuccia at Politico:

Top ranks at the State Department remain largely unfilled, as are some key ambassadorships. Trump has not named anyone to lead the Transportation Security Administration, which screens people at airports, or to run the Homeland Security office charged with protecting the country's physical and cyber infrastructure. His choice to lead the Federal Emergency Management Agency is awaiting Senate confirmation, but Trump has not named a deputy.

At the Justice Department, Trump has not nominated an assistant attorney general for the national security division. And he has not nominated a deputy at the Office of the Director of National Intelligence or a director of the office's National Counterterrorism Center.

And, perhaps most crucially, Trump has not yet named a permanent leader of the FBI, which plays a central role in combating domestic terrorism. The president has continued to interview candidates for the job nearly a month after he fired James Comey.

It's possible the Press Poodles are right, and working for 45* has become such a Career-Killer that it's a simple matter of nobody worth hiring is willing to work for the guy.

It's just as possible he's using that as an excuse for not filling the positions necessary for us to have a better chance to prevent the attack or at least minimize the damage.

And hey - I may be paranoid, but that don't mean the guy ain't out to fuck us over.
