“A Storm Foretold” may very well win the Oscar in the feature length documentary category. It sure would be nice if we could see it in this country. It’s the story of a Dutch filmmaker, Christopher Guldbrandsen, following Roger Stone around in the days when the Big Lie was being cobbled together and Strike Force Rudy assembled, all that. The film is not yet available in this country, although Rick Wilson got hold of a copy and he mentioned on Twitter that it was chilling. Further, I have predicted that amazing movies will be made out of all this that we’re living through now. I hope I’m still here to see one of them.
All The President’s Men was made in 1976, only a few years after Watergate. My feeling is that all of this madness that we’re living through now may be too hard to really find entertaining before several decades pass. We shall see.
In all events. Ari Melber has this clip of Roger Stone letting the cat out of the bag.

There you have it. Melber goes on with more. CAVEAT: There is something wrong with the sound here. I think something happened in the upload. It’s definitely nothing we did here.
If you missed this the other day, we posted it here. This will give you the entire picture.
Stone is outed. I wonder whether he figured nobody would see this movie? Or did he think he’d get away with the fraud and King Donald would be crowned and then the movie would be banned in this country? Or King Donald would ask the world to ban it? Or, King Donald would throw the filmmaker in a dungeon? I really have no idea. I’ve always known Stone was hubris personified but I didn’t think he was stupid.
Maybe the answer is, if you get too drunk on power, you become stupid. That makes as much sense as anything.
