Nation Under Seige: A Nation Divided

Democracy was the buzzword 1/20/2021. As if that alone could calm the seas of unrest.

That is the number one talking point for media. Did they worry about democracy in 2016?

If anything shows the real condition of America, it was the contrast between Inauguration Day four years ago and today’s ceremony. There could not be two more polar opposites.

Four years ago they presented the image of mass protests, complete with grief counselors to nurse deniers through. Today it was a jubilant celebration. Everything was pitch perfect; nothing was amiss or awry. Their fairy tale world was full of wonder and awe.

The peaceful transfer of power with 26 thousand troops in the streets. A powerful visual.

America is and always will be One Nation Under God. But we must always resist the state of a nation under siege. Let all those be confused and obstructed who would render this country to the dustbin of history. Let their attempts be foiled at every turn.

But now starts another story for the record of history. The third-term for one Barack Obama. There can be no doubt about it. He has been lurking and waiting in DC.

How is it the Left can always accuse the right of trying to overturn elections when they spent four miserable years trying to undo the last one? Then they changed every election rule in the book, and broke nearly every one, to get the results that brought us today.

Was it worth it? Is that a fair price to pay for political power?

Democrats disingenuously sprinkle the notions of unity but by every measurable factor, we are a nation divided. It is sort of like a tied football game where one side opposes overtime and denies that the score is even close.

The Senate is exactly split. The House of Representatives is the closest split it has been in 50 years. That is no mandate. Four years of Leftist disunity brought us here. Do not blather about working together now.

Divisive

After engaging in a four-year coup against the will of the people, leading to their cancel culture program, do not now lecture us about the “politics of a raging fire.”

Having half the country under siege is exacerbating the politics of rage. Those fires we’ve seen in the country were a product of politics of rage. Rioting was their weapon of choice.

A few more words but not mine. They are the inauguration rhetoric. Phrases which, at this time, I cannot call well-intended.

Klobuchar

Will of the people; guardians of democracy; sacred trust; weapons of political arson; hope for justice.

Roy Blunt: “Determined democracy” — oh, is that what you call it?

Biden:

“Triumph of a cause- democracy; resilience of the Constitution; restless, bold, optimistic; seek a more perfect union; winter of peril; cry from the planet itself; restore the soul; my whole soul is in it; fight the foes we face; history, faith, reason; no peace without unity; crisis in challenge; politics of a raging fire; lies told for profit; time of testing; significant opportunity.”

Rev. of the AME Church: “Neither shall we learn hatred anymore.”

Biden said “we have much to do in this winter of peril and significant opportunity.

And for Heaven’s sake, stop calling the pandemic a crisis. Call it what you believe it is, an “opportunity.” Hundreds of thousands of deaths were only opportunities to the left.

So from now on, how about calling it the “opportunity virus,” which quid-pro Joe is not done extorting yet for everything he can get. Half the nation is already under siege.

We are a divided nation. The dividers are in charge. End the siege.

Nothing conveys peace quite like 26,000 troops and razor wire. Kumbaya

The Enemy Within

There is a disease in America and it is coming from the Left in this country. The days are long in the past when that could be debated.

It is now a very real scenario. We have an enemy within hell bent on destroying America’ It starts and is festering in the Democratic Left. (much as I do hate using the term”)

There is something rottenly wrong in America and it all emanates from the Left. Democrats and the Left are one in the same too. And apparently they will stop at nothing short of our destruction and/or appeasement to global tyranny.

A new poll by Rasmussen found that younger people along with democrats are enthused by the prospect of a Global Reset. (international economic plans) Just look that up if you aren’t aware what it is.

“Democrats, Younger Voters Welcome More International Involvement in U.S. Economy” — Rasmussen Report.

Then they also expect that Joe Biden will play a central part in delivering that wet dream. But at this point, you can no longer attribute such fantasies to ignorance. They know it is toxic to America, they’ve been told. Yet they still want it anyway.

Dems will foist some pathetic campaign to demand we institute policies to participate in a Global Economic Reset. They always do. By now they know the results of that would not be good for us, but they don’t care about that. They will demand it anyway.

So what we have learned from this election, if anything, is that a majority is not necessary for the Democrats to have their way. They are skilled at functioning on a low margin of the country. They don’t let something like a majority stop them.

Reading that survey only proves America is headed in the wrong direction. And so are the numbers in support of socialism. If, after what we have seen, even in a pandemic, they would still side with globalist/socialist policies for America, then we are in a bad place.

When they support Biden taking the country in that direction, I think we are in for a very rough ride — while the enemy within seems to be gaining steam not losing it.

Great Reset: Radical Global Economic Transformation

Introducing the ‘Great Reset,’ world leaders’ radical plan to transform the economy

By Justin Haskins, Opinion Contributor — The Hill — 06/25/20

For decades, progressives have attempted to use climate change to justify liberal policy changes. But their latest attempt – a new proposal called the “Great Reset” – is the most ambitious and radical plan the world has seen in more than a generation.

At a virtual meeting earlier in June hosted by the World Economic Forum, some of the planet’s most powerful business leaders, government officials and activists announced a proposal to “reset” the global economy. Instead of traditional capitalism, the high-profile group said the world should adopt more socialistic policies, such as wealth taxes, additional regulations and massive Green New Deal-like government programs.

“Every country, from the United States to China, must participate, and every industry, from oil and gas to tech, must be transformed,” wrote Klaus Schwab, the founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum, in an article published on WEF’s website. “In short, we need a ‘Great Reset’ of capitalism.”

Schwab also said that “all aspects of our societies and economies” must be “revamped,” “from education to social contracts and working conditions.”

Joining Schwab at the WEF event was Prince Charles, one of the primary proponents of the Great Reset; …./

A Note To Dems’ Script Writers

One thing stuck in my craw for the duration of the Washingtonian malfeasance is a simple phrase all too common now. Widely and wildly misused. It is more a defense and deflection of the Swamp than an indictment of it.

That phrase is some form of: “we should not criminalize politics” or our political process. Alan Dershowitz popularized it but many used it. It’s now an institutional euphemism.

The original intended beneficiary of the phrase was foremost to be Hillary Clinton. But it was applied in defending Obama too. It may now legitimately be used defending Trump. Though those three instances are apples and oranges. True, they try to criminalize everything Trump does. It has been normalized. Let’s deal with Hillary and Obama.

I resent something called what it is not. In Hillary’s case, it is as a complete misdescription of events. Hillary started her job as Secretary of State in 2009, after lying about creating a wall between the Foundation with her name on it. That conflict was to be expunged, but never was. She knew it, Bill knew it, her top advisors knew it. All were aware how she would use the job as Sec of State. That was the whole point in her taking the job.

She engaged in criminal conduct from the onset.

The crux is even deeper. She began by setting up an illegal server from the start. She never used a State email. Her advisors knew it. She did it to circumvent FOIA and public accountability. The whole purpose by design was to obstruct justice. That was her goal.

The act came first, meaning her job duties were subordinate to political considerations. However, her actions were criminal from the beginning. She was not compliant with the law from the git-go.

Now we are lectured that we the people should not criminalize our political process. Really?

State was politicized too, not just by her. Obama deliberately did not install an Inspector General at State for Hillary. It only had an existing, “acting” temporary (placeholder) office. Politicized and weaponized as was nearly every other department, like Justice.

We now know that in the 2016 campaign, Hillary was taking money from foreign sources. We also know what she was doing with Russians, Perkins Coie, Fusion GPS, Crowd Strike, Ukrainians, an agent of a foreign government, creating a dossier, pedaling it to our intelligence community and co-opting our executive branch. Using existing politicization and further weaponizing intelligence, collaborating with Obama and his administration.

Does all that sound like legitimate, legal campaign conduct — which is being criminalized?

So the point is Hillary and Obama’s criminal deeds criminalized our political process. But we are criminalizing politics by wanting accountability? Not to forget how they weaponized government against the people, interfered with elections and later staged a coup.

But the real source of the whole problem was that Trump beat Hillary in her dirty, illegal game — politics. He was also running against an abuse of power and obstruction of justice. They are now trying to criminalize the very politics that beat them.

Don’t cry to me about people criminalizing routine political conduct and election process. None of Democrats’ was routine. People who stage coups have no credibility.

Season Of Treason

Calling all traitors, cleanup in isle one. It seems we have an endless coup in front of us, but only the dumbest among us don’t see it. It was the coup that never had an end.

By now, the mask is off that most Democrats and the media know what has gone on and continues, they just continue to try to deny it exists. But that is getting harder and harder each day. Denial requires more and more effort as it goes, so that to accept their bullshit rationalization now would ‘require the willing suspension of disbelief.’

You could probably write a dozen titles and all would be correct, like “traitors among us.” “It’s high time for a coup” works too. “Who needs elections when you have the power of a coup?” Or “whatever happened… doesn’t matter.” See what I mean? The solution:

Traitors Must Be Prosecuted To Stop The Coup

Cliff Nichols |Jun 02, 2019 | Townhall

Mueller’s press conference this week should be giving the president a good reason to be asking, how long can his administration afford to allow this coup d’ état to continue before a quorum of public opinion takes hold in this country that will wrongfully compel him by force of some unlawful process, if not arms, to be removed from office?

Undeniably, America is in the midst of a civil war. The only things not yet flying are the bullets.

Liberals in Congress are demanding our president be impeached for undefined offenses. Liberal federal judges are letting themselves be used to thwart his policies at every turn. A complicit liberal media, with the help of Hollywood, is doing its very best to enable the president’s enemies to foment in the public’s mind — without evidence — that he is a liar, a cheat and a criminal who must be removed from office. And Mueller’s press conference brought this tempest to an even greater boil than when the president was first elected over two years ago.

Why?

For one reason, because the president has survived long enough to expose a coup attempted by former high-ranking officials within our government and complicit members of the media to bring him down. Independent investigations have revealed they took affirmative actions in furtherance of a conspiracy to unlawfully — i.e., undemocratically — overthrow his administration, which is a crime.

In a word, they committed treason.

In summary, these liberal elitists felt they knew better what’s good for America than did the millions of people who elected the president. And so to thwart him and them, the Clintons and the DNC “allegedly” paid to create a false dossier that not only slandered the president but then was used by Hillary’s sympathizers to fraudulently legitimize their spying on his campaign before the election and to undermine his administration ever since.

The president’s problem now — as revealed by Mueller — is that they are still trying to pull off the coup they started before he was even elected. …./

Its a worldwide movement

The Sovereignty movement as explained and defended by Steve Bannon on May 28, via Fox on Martha McCallum.

Imagine Jewish people in Germany not being able to wear yarmulkes(caps) in pubic?

And if you want more information, or can handle it, Mark Steyn has a real good piece on the Brexit and May collision course. The parallels with the US are uncanny.

The Base Gets Itself a New Elite

by Mark Steyn — Steyn on Britain | May 28, 2019

“Three years ago the Brexit referendum revealed that Parliament and the people had become misaligned: If over half the people support a policy that no “mainstream” party supports, then in what sense are those parties mainstream? Mrs May should have enacted the people’s wishes, exited the EU on WTO terms, left it largely to civil servants to smooth the technical adjustments, and then invited Brussels to take its time and make proposals for such new arrangements as they might wish to entertain. By now, Brexit would be receding in the rear-view mirror, and normal politics – that’s to say, two-party Tory-Labour politics – would have resumed.”

What part of all this are they not understanding?

Open Letter To The Mainstream Media

I write in sympathy to your current predicament. I know you have an extreme lack of credibility and standing with the public. Or maybe you are still in denial? You offend them and they offend you. I know it upsets you.

I feel your pain; but I cannot validate it.

The problem is that it is not Trump’s fault. That must be hard for you to accept, too. Yet it is the truth. Just repeat the words: “our credibility deficit is not Trump’s fault.”

It was not Trump’s fault that before the 2016 election you jumped on the Hillary bandwagon, with no reservations. You were doing her bidding well before the primaries.

When the election did come, by then you had set the perception that she was the winner by all standards and could not lose. Trump had nothing to do with your willful bias. He was not whispering in your ear to give favorable treatment to Hillary, forcing you to do her cleanup and dirty work.

He did not tell you to make things up about him and his supporters just like you all did about Tea Parties. He didn’t choose all your negative coverage of himself and positive coverage for Hillary. That was not in his power or within his influence to do.

He didn’t make you into card-carrying members of the resistance. He didn’t tell you to brand his supporters as racists, bigots, or even domestic terrorists. But you implied they were dumb, uneducated grievance hustlers who were generations out of step with the times. (talk about projection)

We came to the party only to take our part. You came to blacklist us. Sure, you couldn’t quite get the job done, but you expected it to take a toll. To some degree it did. Though you couldn’t defeat or destroy us. After all, you had been trying more subtly to do that for years. But we were not going away. In fact, we were the original resistance. So you fully embraced the banner of resistance after the election. Trump did not make you do that. He only pointed it out. You demurred any criticism because that is the kind of people you are.

We don’t matter. When you ran the daily 24/7 hate Trump media for his first two years, hyping the resistance movement and impeachment, you dug in your heels of sedition. With every leak and anonymous source you could muster, you blazed an historical trail, aligning yourselves with a coup well under way from the first day of Trump’s presidency.

Yes, I can sympathize with your pain and agony of it all. Well, I can because we have felt that prejudice against us from the public for decades. Your part in that campaign against us has not gone unrecognized. We are well aware of it and your attitude against we the people. We know how you feel about the people and flyover country.

We know how you despise the people’s mindset… and their choice.

So when Donald Trump said some members of the mainstream media – not all — were enemies of the people, he was right. We already knew that. You just confirmed it. When you were offended by that comment, it was not our fault. You did it. When you tried to spin yourselves into victims of that remark, it fell on deaf ears because we have always been the real victims of your schemes.

We get to vote, and were determined to vote regardless what you thought of us. See, you get to cast your vote everyday, as the elitists you are. You want to control dialogue and you couldn’t. The conversation went on around you, even factoring in your heavy hand at the ballot. But you could not control the discussion or the election results. So I can really identify with how you must feel. We’ve felt that way for years and you never cared.

Yes, we all know exactly what it is like to be outcast by the public as troublemakers and crazies. But we were not looking to validate our victimhood. We didn’t have to. It is prima facie in any honest assessment. Along comes media now claiming to be the righteous victims of slander, smear or character assassination to vindicate their cause. It is dishonest. It is self-serving, it is agenda driven and, finally, it is very political.

Now you have laid the record bare for all to see. Only you want your trashed credibility back on a golden platter. That’s just not how any of this works.

Worse than all that, you have also lost credibility with the Left, your handlers and allies. You promised and built up their hopes that you would assist in taking down this president.

When the Mueller report came out and didn’t declare the collusion you promised, your radical base of consumers recoiled. Their hearts and trust were broken. So you have lost on both sides, with your enemies and your allies. Hurts, doesn’t it?

That should have taught you something. But it was your stubborn choices you made every step of the way that are to blame, not Trump. We didn’t destroy your credibility. You did that yourself. We only supplied the means. Remember reporters demanding apologies from Trump? By the way, did you ever apologize for the way you treated the Tea Parties? No, it’s all part of the long record now. It lives on to prove to anyone honestly looking.

You are the victims of your own bias and hatred. Thursday will only validate what we all knew. It will expose you for the liars you were all along. But Trump didn’t do it to you.

It might be time to take some stock and dust off that first amendment to see what is really in it. There is more there than your beloved freedom. And last I checked, you weren’t.

The voices in Lois Lerner’s ear

Once again, we have to thank Tom Fitton for rooting this out. Like everything else the Obama administration tried to bury, the IRS targeting was no different. Go figure, the FBI and DOJ under Obama was involved with this, too.

Judicial Watch Obtains IRS Documents Revealing McCain’s Subcommittee Staff Director Urged IRS to Engage in “Financially Ruinous” Targeting

Judicial Watch | June 21, 2018

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch today released newly obtained internal IRS documents, including material revealing that Sen. John McCain’s former staff director and chief counsel on the Senate Homeland Security Permanent Subcommittee, Henry Kerner, urged top IRS officials, including then-director of exempt organizations Lois Lerner, to “audit so many that it becomes financially ruinous.” Kerner was appointed by President Trump as Special Counsel for the United States Office of Special Counsel.

The explosive exchange was contained in notes taken by IRS employees at an April 30, 2013, meeting between Kerner, Lerner, and other high-ranking IRS officials. Just ten days following the meeting, former IRS director of exempt organizations Lois Lerner admitted that the IRS had a policy of improperly and deliberately delaying applications for tax-exempt status from conservative non-profit groups.

Lerner and other IRS officials met with select top staffers from the Senate Governmental Affairs Committee in a “marathon” meeting to discuss concerns raised by both Sen. Carl Levin (D-MI) and Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) that the IRS was not reining in political advocacy groups in response to the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision. Senator McCain had been the chief sponsor of the McCain-Feingold Act and called the Citizens United decision, which overturned portions of the Act, one of the “worst decisions I have ever seen.”

In the full notes of an April 30 meeting, McCain’s high-ranking staffer Kerner recommends harassing non-profit groups until they are unable to continue operating. Kerner tells Lerner, Steve Miller, then chief of staff to IRS commissioner, Nikole Flax, and other IRS officials, “Maybe the solution is to audit so many that it is financially ruinous.” In response, Lerner responded that “it is her job to oversee it all:”

“Henry Kerner asked how to get to the abuse of organizations claiming section 501 (c)(4) but designed to be primarily political. Lois Lerner said the system works, but not in real time. Henry Kerner noted that these organizations don’t disclose donors. Lois Lerner said that if they don’t meet the requirements, we can come in and revoke, but it doesn’t happen timely. Nan Marks said if the concern is that organizations engaging in this activity don’t disclose donors, then the system doesn’t work. Henry Kerner said that maybe the solution is to audit so many that it is financially ruinous. Nikole noted that we have budget constraints. Elise Bean suggested using the list of organizations that made independent expenditures. Lois Lerner said that it is her job to oversee it all, not just political campaign activity.”

Judicial Watch previously reported on the 2013 meeting. Senator McCain then issued a statement decrying “false reports claiming that his office was somehow involved in IRS targeting of conservative groups.” The IRS previously blacked out the notes of the meeting but Judicial Watch found the notes among subsequent documents released by the agency.

Judicial Watch separately uncovered that Lerner was under significant pressure from both Democrats in Congress and the Obama DOJ and FBI to prosecute and jail the groups the IRS was already improperly targeting. In discussing pressure from Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (Democrat-Rhode Island) to prosecute these “political groups,” Lerner admitted, “it is ALL about 501(c)(4) orgs and political activity.”

Is there any scheme against conservatives or Republicans that McCain did not have his hands in? It seems like that was his whole purpose, especially to undermine the Right and disrupt their ability to organize. This one scandal was tailor made to fit his agenda.

And the IRS scandal is not over, as JW says it is still recovering documents. That is called a coverup, too. It is easier to cover up when you have the institutional resources cooperating. But this shows how far Obama’s administration went and who all was involved.

By the time you do get info, leftist Obamafiles then try to bury the exposure in subterfuge.

My Dear John letter

I think a letter is in order to McCain. He McCan’t do anything that might help the GOP even though he had them all helping drag him across his last election.

Now, what GOP, what help? “I don’t need any stinking GOP.” No, he is happy basking in the glow of the left as a proud member of the Resistance.

Last repeal he said was not in AZ’s state interest. This time the governor endorses it and McCain finds an excuse to oppose it on process. Well, John, process this!

You used your conscience for your excuse. Your conscience would not allow you to support it. Maybe you shouldn’t have used that excuse.That very convenient, expedient conscience of yours that most of us didn’t know you ever had.

Those chilling words, “I cannot in good conscience…” Funny how look at everything else his conscience allows him to support. How about the help for those other missing POWs? His conscience was fine with burying all that, and he used as much of “the process” as he could for the means to do it. In fact that is what the process was for, to bury inconvenient things. Process he created to obstruct and confuse the process. How about the process of Campaign Finance Reform, where he used the process to try to control free speech?

McCain was the willing dupe that the left used over and over again through the years. He was media’s go to darling to attack the GOP, since McCain never attacks the left but reserves all his animosity for his own party. (his own party is being generous)

Maverick McCain — nothing Maverick about selling out or trading out. The Maverick who referred to Evangelicals and the right as Agents of Intolerance. We always deserve broad brush names but liberals deserve his best compliments, like Chappaquiddick Ted.

That is another point, John constantly told us that he came in under the Reagan Revolution. Indeed, Reagan had already won and laid the groundwork. All McCain did was attach himself like a leach to the Reagan train. A foot soldier he calls himself. What did he fight for? What part of that Revolution was his? He promptly started a revolution within against the revolution that helped usher him in. And he’s a keeper?

Eventually he would hookup with his stepbrother, Ted Kennedy. Never realizing he was a useful mark for the left, always was. But his heart was in it. That is where his true loyalties lie, with the left. Democrats had him figured better than he did them. Then Republicans granted him wide berth because he called himself a Maverick. More like the 1970’s ford Maverick — cheap, dated, unwanted and obsolete. A Maverick, what’s he given us?

In the 80’s McCain and fellow Senators gave us the Keating five scandal on Lincoln Savings and Loan. That cost the taxpayers over 3 billion and many people lost their life savings. But McCain wasn’t gone. He was worried about himself, not investors or losses. He was one of two Senators who survived to run for reelection. But then he went right back to being the stab in the back Senator.

Then he’d go on to run for president. Kids, don’t try that. He jokes about having lost a few expensive aircraft in his Navy days. He’d go on to basically throw the election for Obama, whom he could not criticize. Sarah Palin could not make up for his compromised campaign.

Failure McCain goes on to deliver the dossier to the FBI in 2016. He flirted with not endorsing or voting for Trump. He came around to run on the same platform declaring he would lead the repeal and replace charge to Obamacare in the Senate. That saved his tough reelection. But afterwards, he promptly went back to opposing Republicans.

So on Obamacare repeal, he claims his conscience just wouldn’t allow him to vote for it. But then he knew his was the decisive vote to kill it. Even prior to taking that vote, McCain went over to huddle with Democrats telling them he was a “No.” That overjoyed Chris Coons, as just one in the group with Chuck Schumer. And he told Dems to take up the defense bill as soon after that vote as they could. He was already maneuvering and moving on after leaving American people in the lurch by his pompous vote. That conscience….

Not quite done wrecking our agenda, he now plans on upending the tax reform bill, if he can. And on and on for the foreseeable future, as long as he is there.

So it’s time, John McCain, to bid you farewell, good riddance. Your so-called conscience has put you way beyond remediation on anything else. A conscience I cannot recognize.

On Tuesday’s election, McCain tries to validate himself — using the left’s talking points:

(CNN)”I predicted this, OK? And unless we get our act together, we’re going to lose heavily,” said Sen. John McCain, …pointing to two recent speeches he’s given where he warned about the President’s divisive rhetoric and impact on the Republican Party going forward.

Your conscience called and wants its excuse back… with interest. Maverick Maniac.

The Bush-con job

It seems to be time for a little push-push back on the Bush-Bush. Gee, I was so looking forward to doing a Dear John letter to McCain. That will have to wait.

I know, I already had a post on Dubya here but he demands a new one. Now I have to file the Bushes with Corker, Flake, Sasse, McCain, Kasich who are ongoing subjects. After all, look at the legacy they bequeathed us. And they gave us the biggest loser of 2016, Jeb — the guy with an acronym for a name.

It is time for history to respond to the Bush Hecklers. Why were they off limits for years? But that requires a tome that I’ll struggle to do in hardcover. (pre-priced at 49.99) Let’s go with highlights or low lights for starters.

So if that’s what the dynamic duo of destruction want from conservative Republicans, then they shall get it. In his recent speech, George W. declared:

“We’ve seen our discourse degraded by casual cruelty,” Bush said. “At times it can seem that the forces pulling us apart are stronger than the forces binding us together. Argument turns too easily into animosity. Disagreement escalates into dehumanization. Too often, we judge other groups by their worst examples while judging ourselves by our best intentions — forgetting the image of God we should see in each other.”

Has George looked in the mirror in the last few years? He really has been under a rock. Dude, we had to defend you and your Bushisms. They ripped Republicans apart.

“We’ve seen nationalism distorted into nativism, forgotten the dynamism that immigration has always brought to America.”

Is that what you call it,”dynamism”?

Look, if you can’t treat the people who are here, who vote, any better than this, then why should we believe anything you are selling about “immigrants” — illegal or not?.
 

The Bushes don’t seem to understand how all this works. Sure, they were attacked by the left relentlessly. But they shouldn’t mistake that for the ire of the American people they will get in spades from Republicans now. They thought we would not dare respond in kind to their bitter attacks on us. Wrong. They thought it is our job to stand up and defend all their twists and turns of political schizophrenia, the way McCain is. Wrong again. Strange how for political creatures, they just don’t get it.

That is the problem. The Bushes are the poster child for ruling-class elitists who make up the establishment, They are actually viewed with disdain by most of the people, but think they are elite overlords to rule us with an iron hand. They should make decisions, not us.

As Dubya used to say he had “political capital” and he was going to spend it. However, that bank account was drained long ago and the political capital is in the hands of the people, who don’t have much use for Bushes. We are so very fortunate, and I am personally ecstatic, that Jeb did not make it into the White House. So no matter what Bushes think of us and Trump, we are grateful their political power and capital has been cut off.

Recent statements were only an appetizer because the duo of disdain revealed their true inner views in a new book. I suppose Dubya will have to comment or promote this new book around the country, and remind us of the not-so-forgotten Bush years.

The Hill

Former President George H.W. Bush has a blunt assessment of Donald Trump: “He’s a blowhard.” And his son, former President George W. Bush, has harsh words for his Republican successor as well: “This guy doesn’t know what it means to be president.”

“I don’t like him,” George H.W. Bush says in the book. “I don’t know much about him, but I know he’s a blowhard. And I’m not too excited about him being a leader.” – “The Last Republicans” by Mark K. Updegrove.

Does 41 always despise people he doesn’t know much about and call them blowhards? Yet he and his preening son are prestigious? Tell us what it means, Dubya, oh wise one.

The response from this White House was not kind: Necn.com

“The American people voted to elect an outsider who is capable of implementing real, positive, and needed change – instead of a lifelong politician beholden to special interests.” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told NBC News. “If they were interested in continuing decades of costly mistakes, another establishment politician more concerned with putting politics over people would have won.”

While in Asia, Trump was asked about it and said:

After landing in Japan for his 11-day Asia trip, Trump refused to comment on the report, saying: “I’ll comment after we come back. I don’t need headlines. I don’t want to make their move successful.”

The White House also responded on the general party criticism:

“If one Presidential candidate can disassemble a political party, it speaks volumes about how strong a legacy its past two presidents really had”

If this is not proof: no matter what happens the Bushes can’t listen to the American people, even to the results of an election. The verdict is clear and now the Bushes are the past.

Sick swamp culture in Capitol

Forget Obamacare and healthcare, we are a sick country. Sick in the way of very ill needing extraordinary, urgent treatment to get it off the sick bed.

But the sickness is coming from Congress and the swamp in DC. And so far it is collectively refusing the treatment. The antibiotics are there and the IV waits. But we have a body and culture that persistently refuses to take the medicine.

Federal contractor arrested for sending classified intelligence to news outlet

“A 25-year-old federal contractor is facing charges she leaked a classified National Security Agency document to a news outlet in May. The charges come about an hour after the publication of a story based on an NSA document detailing Russian attempts to hack American voting systems.

Reality Leigh Winner, of Augusta, Ga., is facing charges that she removed classified material from a government facility and mailed it to a news outlet. She was arrested on Saturday and appeared on the charge Monday.”

Let me guess, a Hillary Clinton voter/supporter? Just a hunch, call me psychic.

Who’s Your Prosecutor

The goring and gnashing of the establishment teeth has begun, using the special counsel, Robert Muller, to do it. It’s time for revenge.

A career guy and former FBI Director who has worked under both sides, celebrated as impeccably neutral on both sides of the isle.

Precisely, an Establishment figure both sides respect says it all. This is now their establishment guy, no doubt about it.

Beginning Of The Rest Of The Story

The first rule of the WH should be “Our WH policy is not to comment or conjecture on pending investigations.” — ‘Investigations have their course and we have ours.

2nd rule: Do not compound the injuries.

I believe all this investigatory fog is a deflection from Hillary’s and Obama’s trail of scandals. The Left has pushed all that aside. They are obsessed with no room left.

The official age of establishment cynicism has arrived.

Oh, so we went from an establishment consensus of the first unimpeachable president in history for Obama, to having the most impeachable president in history.

The Trauma From Obama

As the media is all about analyzing Trump’s first hundred days with an accusatory eye, I thought it was time to take the temperature of the country. That’s putting it mildly.

I like the medical analogy with America as the patient. So we elected Obama, whether you want to look at that like contracting a chronic illness or severe injury is beside the point.

It’s more like we suffered some ailment that grew progressively worse over the 8 years Obama was in office. Not enough care or attention was given it; in fact it got none. Then, since the election, and more recently, we were treated to a parade of opposition.

I finally diagnosed into his second term that it seemed America was in Trauma — becoming a slave to its condition. You knew it wasn’t getting any better and watched it get worse. After the shock wore off there was still a lot of trauma. So “no drama Obama” caused a whole lot of trauma.

Right into Trump’s inauguration that Obama trauma continued. One thing I’ve learned from people who studied the subject is the body does not heal itself fully while it is in trauma. And if you know anything about x-rays, they cannot get real clear pictures of something with so much trauma around it.

So we had to shake off that trauma from Obama. Not easy. He had infected every part of the nation, from one end to the other, and divided the country by every measure possible. He also politicized about every part of government. No wonder we were in that state.

Even when Trump came into office, it was immediately obvious there were Obama loyalists, hangers on, and Deep State opposition almost everywhere. Leftists began a stampede of protests. Democrats promised to oppose anything and everything.

Yet here we were still a traumatized nation. reluctant to provide us any relief. Obama’s loyalists came out kicking the injury, reviving the pain at every opportunity. It’s hard for one to deny the state we were in under Obama. The first step would be to rid ourselves of the trauma to let healing begin.

However, can you really ever heal from something as traumatic as Obama’s legacy? I guess you would also have to talk to abuse victims to examine that part. And yes, it is possible to be in trauma while also being abused.

Awaiting Mitt Romney’s apology tour

After campaigning against and trying to sabotage Trump’s campaign/election, even his Republican nomination, Romney now contemplates the real consequences of issuing an apology to try to seal his Secretary of State bid. How far can he go?

I do hope he likes groveling but is it enough — after all he has done?

H/T to Gateway Pundit

Transition Team sources told Ed Henry from FOX News that Mitt Romney is preparing a public apology.

Mitt Romney is reportedly very interested in the Secretary of State job. (See)

But is it enough to apologize? And I don’t mean only to Trump but to all the people who supported or voted for Trump. He owes them plenty — whether he gets the job or not.

Remember he wrote a book “No Apology: The Case for American Greatness.” Ironic now that his appointment requires an apology just as a precursor.

Has anyone out there in Rightville considered what a Mitt Romney confirmation hearing would look like? I think I’d call it a smorgasbord for Democrats. They’ll eat it up.

Here we go with Dems’ mind games

Rush Limbaugh puts it in stark terms. He’s talking strategy which is what this is all about.

I’m Getting Nervous About All These Calls for Trump to Unify with the Losers

November 10, 2016

RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, I’m getting nervous. I am already getting nervous. I know it’s early. I’m not getting nervous because of anything I’ve heard President-Elect Trump say. I’m getting nervous because of things I’m hearing other people say, things totally unnecessary. And I want to take some time today to try to explain why I’m nervous and destroy some myths that seem to always pop up after elections about unity and crossing the aisle and working together and almost apologizing for winning.

I’m sick of it. I’m fed up with it. I have watched it happen for now 29 years, and I’m not gonna sit here and stand or sit mute while it happens again. We have been governed against our will for the last eight years. The Democrat Party — and nobody saw this, folks — because everybody was so focused on two people, Hillary and Donald Trump. Nobody, I mean nobody until after it was over, had any idea what had really happened.

We should have known it because we’ve been chronicling it. I’m talking about the demise of the Democrat Party. The Democrat Party since 2010, the midterm elections in 2010, they lost 900 seats in that election in the House, in the Senate, go to governorships, mayors, town council, if you go all over the country, they got a shellacking. We now know that if Donald Trump had run for president in 2012 using the exact data he got versus what Obama got in 2012, Donald Trump would have beaten Obama in 2012, if you take the data from this election and measure it against what Obama had.

“And we also have the plummeting fortunes of the Democrat Party to back it up. The Democrat Party happens to be the receptacle for anti-Americanism in America today. If you don’t like America and if you’ve got problems with America, that’s where you go. You go to the Democrat Party. It is undeniable. Now, I warned everybody about this rioting. I warned about it constantly. I want you to hear, because, folks, it isn’t real. I am begging you to ignore it. Do not let it affect you. “

Lots more: http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2016/11/10/i_m_getting_nervous_about_all_these_calls_for_trump_to_unify_with_the_losers

That is enough to open the can of worms. I am sick of it, too, but that doesn’t seem to matter. I’ve been watching this for years wondering just how far Democrats will be allowed to push their agenda? I think we now know. It came to a screeching halt, at least for the moment…only for the moment.

Like clockwork, Dems now shift to try to interfere in the Republican party. They have ruined themselves, and failed at their own mission. But suddenly they are advisers to Repubs and we should listen to them? I know, it is absurd but this is what they do. They want to do anything to detract from the train wreck in the DNC. I mean anything. And bringing Republicans down, after a win, is a huge objective they can all get behind.

Now Clinton campaign staffer, Jennifer Palmieri, says it was Comey’s fault Hillary lost. She cannot take any responsibility. Their campaign accepts no blame for the outcome. Next they’ll blame voters. Hillary the failed human being and candidate shall not be blamed. They want Dems as passionate about her corrupt record as Mother Teresa’s.

For years they have been beating Repubs over the head about the autopsy of the Republican party. I was sick of that. But have an introspective investigation of the DNC and Hillary Campaign? No, can’t have that. “Even Republicans said you need to do __.”

Now Democrats are pushing the idea of Keith Ellison as DNC Chair. Did we mention because he is a Muslim? Think about it, they ousted a Chair literally on the eve of their convention because of a scandal. So they replaced her with the pillar of integrity Donna Brazile, Clinton loyalist.Then there was the corrupted candidate herself.

Problem is they’ll focus their criticism on Republicans. We don’t play that BS. And no one is going to appoint them, or Hillary, as the “tolerance czar.” I can’t wait to see Dems invisible autopsy. They promised people booty for votes. Now the protracted chase and foreplay is over, Democrat stooges are aghast at reality – no booty. Take it out on Republicans.

The Central Factor is Time

Looking across the spectrum of all these problems today, the one common denominator and leading factor in all of our issues or problems seems to be time.

How many songs have been written about time? It’s the one known factor and one thing we have no control over. And time is pressing.

Plug time into anything and it gives you the known variables. How much time do we have? How much time does it take to fix it? How much time is necessary to get the desired results? How much time is being wasted by ignoring the problems? How much time is wasted for all sorts of reasons? In the end, does the clock have enough time available to turn the situation(s) around?

So many people may be looking for a new clock by now. Some may be resigned that it is not even possible anymore. Some are just complacent that it even matters — with so many other concerns upon them. But then, time alone will not fix things either. It can only make the problems a little older.

Just a few general thoughts about the general factor in all our issues, time. We don’t have much left in this election.

Yet there is one other thing that I noticed, politically. Democrats have this habit of overreaching. Of course that is only a byproduct of their politics. They are constantly trying to push the outer limits on everything — whatever it is — as far as they can go. So the natural extension of that is to overreach.

The problem is that it does not seem to bite them more often, if at all. They are now floating the idea of not just beating Trump and getting the White House, but that this could even be a wave election for them in Congress. See what I mean about overreaching? It never ends with Libs, progressives, socialists, whatever they call themselves.

Comey guarded, then flushed the toilet

FBI, DOJ roiled by Comey, Lynch decision to let Clinton slide by on emails, says insider

The decision to let Hillary Clinton off the hook for mishandling classified information has roiled the FBI and Department of Justice, with one person closely involved in the year-long probe telling FoxNews.com that career agents and attorneys on the case unanimously believed the Democratic presidential nominee should have been charged.

The source, who spoke to FoxNews.com on the condition of anonymity, said FBI Director James Comey’s dramatic July 5 announcement that he would not recommend to the Attorney General’s office that the former secretary of state be charged left members of the investigative team dismayed and disgusted. More than 100 FBI agents and analysts worked around the clock with six attorneys from the DOJ’s National Security Division, Counter Espionage Section, to investigate the case.

The FBI investigators all thought, unanimously, that her security clearance should have been yanked. Thanks, Comey — the ballyhooed ambassador of integrity — you torched FBI’s cred too.

Should’ve, would’ve, could’ve… America lost. Snake eyes.
Take your parlor game with you.

The shaping of the political landscape

We are being told, for whatever their reasons, that the race is really over. Get used to the idea that Hillary has won — at least that is their message. They push their perception from all corners and media. What’s wrong with that… besides everything?

Problem number one is that there are some things not lost on the Left, at least the greater Left not enthralled with Hillary. They only wish they could successfully take on their party establishment in an effective way to usher in change. (certainly the Left doesn’t agree with the right) Though they would love and tried to stage a coup against their establishment status quo. And Wall Street connections are not popular with them.

So that creates the secret sauce. There is bound to be a lot of resentment within the Left having failed to take over and buck the entrenched elite estabos. They now immortalize Bernie the same way they did the Gore election, but to what end?

When the Left sees what the Republicans have done the one thing they cannot deny is that we effectively took on the party establishment. Sure there are fights and skirmishes now, which only proves the case. Even with the contempt of the anti-Trumpers and their establishment allies doing everything in their power to resist and fend off a takeover, they were not been able to put down the movement. They could not co-opt it either.

Now this has to be on the minds of some of the Left. They gave it a shot with Bernie, and it merged right back into business as usual. It was not even a real attempt that had a chance. It was fixed from the beginning. Leaked emails show it. They even had a blowup on the eve of their convention forcing DW Schultz to resign. Democrats and media stamped it all down easily, while they played up the dissatisfaction on the right. (they still are)

Republicans have to capitalize on that, as bad as it may seem to be on the right. We still achieved something the Left could not: we got a candidate nominated, through all those hurtles and protests thrown at us. Rub it in that the Establishment Party controls the Left. And having suffered through this coup attempt this year, Democrats will make sure it does not come that close to success again. There has to be some jealousy for what Republicans have accomplished. It must be extorted for all it is worth.

An Open letter to Spkr Ryan: Jeff Lord

An Open Letter to Speaker Paul Ryan: It’s time to leave.

by Jeffrey Lord
October 11, 2016, 6:44 pm

Dear Mr. Speaker:

I like you.

We both admired and worked for Jack Kemp at different stages of his career. I agree with much of your Kemp-style agenda. So it gives me no pleasure to say what is now abundantly obvious.

It is time for you to do the honorable thing and resign as Speaker of the House.

Your views on Donald Trump — and for that matter anything else — are between you and your constituents in Wisconsin. But most certainly what you do as Speaker of the House — which is to say as the leader of the Republican Party in the House and a senior leader in the national Republican Party — is to support the Republican presidential nominee elected by the voters. Amazingly you have dragged your feet repeatedly on one of your central responsibilities as a party leader. Now, with your latest statement refusing to defend Donald Trump — the Republican nominee and the elected leader the Republican Party — you have refused outright to perform your job as a senior party leader.

With that in mind, it is time to do the right thing — and the honorable thing: Resign the Speakership immediately.

To my dismay, you have chosen to disregard the long ago wisdom of Ronald Reagan that “a political party is not a fraternal order.” Instead, you have essentially joined forces with those who view the Republican Party as just that: a club. A combination fraternity/sorority and country club whose members — self-selected Congressmen and Senators, wealthy donors, consultants, and lobbyists — see themselves in high school terms as the “in crowd” and all the rest of their fellow Republicans — not to mention conservative Democrats and Independents — not as allies and supporters but as outsiders. Outsiders for whom the “insiders” have a fundamental contempt — a view that is strikingly similar to the view of Americans held by Hillary Clinton and the American Left at large.

Indeed, it is this “fraternal order” psychology that produced first the Reagan Revolution and has now produced Donald Trump. In both instances the base of the party was fed up with Republican elites whose view of America was centered on not principle but their own careers. It is precisely this mindset that — long before Donald Trump appeared on the scene — has given millions of Republican voters the belief that the Republican elites in Washington and elsewhere are, to borrow from Sean Hannity, feckless, weak and interested not in the country but only the preservation of their own careers. As Reagan well knew this kind of belief can be fatal to a political party. […/]
