#2 US Secretary of State Antony Blinken flew to Ecuador on October 19 to declare US support for the country’s beleaguered President Guillermo Lasso, one day after he imposed a state of emergency (estado de excepción), suspending constitutional rights and deploying heavily armed troops in the streets.
Appearing before the media alongside Ecuador’s foreign minister, Mauricio Montalvo, Blinken declared, “In extraordinary moments, democracies require exceptional measures.”

#3 ^ love it. Estado de excepción.
That neatly summarizes our kakocrats' theory of governance.

Sort of a unified field theory of Woke Begavior, of everything these assholes have perpetrated in the last several years:

Excepción del WuFlu
Excepción del Negro
Excepción de las Protestas Pacíficas
Excepción del Inquisición del Seis de Noviembre
Excepción de Los Gentes Que Menstruaran
Excepción del Pelosi [Cuomo, Whitmer, Newsome...]
Excepción de la Guerra Sagrada Contra El Hombre-Naranja.
