Age of Chaos in Government: by usual suspects

The Democrats and liberal leftists, Marxists have embarked on a Shock and Chaos campaign. Trump and DOJ fires FBI Dir. Comey and all the liberal fruits rise to the top.

Leading Democrats say they either lack confidence in Deputy AG Rod Rosentein, or that it is shaken, after only confirming him weeks ago. Dems say they will stop a new nominee any way possible until a special prosecutor is appointed. One can see where that is headed — or how many resignations can they call for? They took the opportunity to renew calls for protests against the Trump administration.

Meanwhile, their hearings in the House and Senate will continue in any case. They will have Comey testify in closed-session, then in public. And at least two Senators, Blumenthal and Warner, hope to hire Comey in their Russia-collusion investigation. They also want to start a second, stealth investigation in the Judicial Committee to look into the AG’s office, including Rosenstein’s actions and AG Sessions, along with new nominations.

In the midst of this, Democrats and and mainstream media, like David Gregory, have said Trump could not fire Comey in the middle of this investigation. Apparently an FBI director has termination immunity if FBI has an investigation involving or surrounding the president. Really? Sounds like a job security plan to me.

Not alone, Dems are trying to enlist usual turncoat Republicans McCain, Flake, Sasse, Graham, Collins to reinforce their efforts to prevent any new nominee and push for Special Prosecuter et al. Then they will double up on their usual radicalizing any process.

Enter the up and comers: Senator Corey Booker, potential wannabe Obamafile, takes to the MSM circuit to declare, “The Russians are coming, the Russians are coming!” (maybe he should have a chat with president flexibility – Gumby)

Then, having created all this chaos in their shock treatment, Democrats think they can use that “sad” state we are in to try to impeach the president. It should be laughable, but for them it is not. Plus they have their media/press accomplices to drive their narrative.

So welcome to the Radical-United States of America, at the pleasure of Democrats.

Dems may need “lessons” to talk to Trump voters

What else would you expect? When Dems take a whooping like they did in November, they don’t need an autopsy for what they did wrong. No, they just need to learn to talk to those Trump voters. Er, you know, the people they have worked so damn hard to ignore for oh, about a decade or more.

I’ll take more ignorance, please, as long as you’re dishing it out.

Democrats hold lessons on how to talk to real people

Gathering in Sheperdstown, W.Va., Democrats were scheduled to hear from liberal political operative David Brock on Thursday, who ran a session called “Hold Trump Accountable” with Center for American Progress CEO Neera Tanden and Priorities USA CEO Guy Cecil. Earlier in the day, Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) moderated a “discussion with Trump voters,” according to a draft schedule obtained by POLITICO.

[topics include] “speaking to those who feel invisible in rural America,” “Listening to those feel unheard,” and “Rising America — They feel unheard too.”

In other news, Tucker Carlson gets jonathan Gruber back on Fox for his pinata routine.

BizPac Review

“I think that’s a prime example of the misinformation that has been spread. I just don’t think people understand what the law has done for them,” he said.

When asked about the people the law has hurt, Gruber said, “This law was never supposed to help everybody, Tucker. That wasn’t the design. The law was actually explicitly designed first in Massachusetts and then for the nation to leave the vast majority of Americans alone.

Gruber said the belief was that people who had health insurance would eventually benefit in the “long-term” by lowering cost. The law was designed to “fix what was wrong in our system.

Problem was it was sold on lies. All lies. So when they promised it would not affect people, it did. It did not leave us alone. But that was really the design. The sales pitch was that it would leave us alone. He got the sales pitch and design mixed up.

The man of No Hope n No Change reflects on his factor of “Me”

“The next phase and this is part of what I’m interested in doing, after I get out of the presidency, is to make sure that I’m working with that next generation so that they understand you can’t just rely on inspiration,” Obama said.

Washington Examiner

Taking “some responsibility” for the losses suffered by the Democratic Party during his eight years in the White House, President Obama suggested that his lack of presence on the campaign trail was a decisive factor.

I think it is high time. Obama clearly needs an intervention to stop him. Will he get one?

So “you can’t just rely on inspiration.” This guy makes me sick. Don’t tell that to all the drones who got you to the White House. Obama didn’t even have much inspiration either.

The real problem is Obama did show up… boy did he — in 2008-2016, everywhere.

Obama made good on his anti-Israel threats

Back in March this year, escaping much attention in the heat of the election, Dennis McDonough described the White House’s change in policy toward Israel. That was also after the Dems boycotted Netanyahu’s joint session address to Congress. So the radical Left is finishing off the year the way they started it, opposing Israel.

Today they followed through on their threats by refusing to veto the UN resolution on Israeli settlements.

Approved by 14-0, with US abstaining, text seeks action ‘to reverse the negative trends on the ground that are imperiling the two-state solution’

In March McDonough spoke to the Left-leaning J-Street lobby:(I wrote about it)

Huffington Post — 3/24

“We cannot simply pretend that those comments were never made, or that they don’t raise questions about the prime minister’s commitment to achieving peace through direct negotiations,” McDonough added, saying that the Obama administration plans to reevaluate its policy toward Israel and the Palestinian territories.

Though McDonough did not elaborate on what a revamped policy would look like, the White House has suggested that its opposition to Palestinian attempts to secure statehood at the United Nations may soften. On Thursday, White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters, “Steps that the United States has taken at the United Nations have been predicated on this idea that the two-state solution is the best outcome. Now our ally in these talks has said that they are no longer committed to that solution. That means that we need to reevaluate our position in this matter, and that is what we will do moving forward,” referring to past down-votes by the U.S. on Palestinian statehood initiatives. ( more)

So he waited till December just before leaving office to stick it to Israel. Well, it cannot hurt Hillary. They did what they wanted to do — make good on their threat.

But this was clear in Israel’s last election. Obama operatives ran a campaign to interfere and oppose Netanyahu. Then they were ticked off at his reelection. Now it is payback, revenge time. Of course this goes over well with their anti-Israel base. It’s a political win. They can grandstand on opposing Israel and Netanyahu.

It is not about settlements either, it is about ’67 borders that are indefensible. Now the Obama administration is going out on their high note: opposing Israel. Then they can try to blame Israel for their actions. Mission accomplished before Obummer leaves office.
(if they only had more time)

Message to the Whiny Left and Democrats

Finally, I think it’s time for a personal message to Democrats. It’s time you carry you whiny, crying, petulant carcasses off the streets and soak in a little reality. Baste yourselves in liquid spirits if you must, but go knowing it’s over. You get no trophy.

That’s right, “Tuesday’s Gone With The Wind.” — Get over it.

Remember this Libs, you hypocrites?

Take your crying towels and “Move On”. Get a grip for Heaven’s sake. Your utopian hallucination has ended. Reality crashed the party. Trump is not leaving, deal with it.

Dems and the Disgruntled Black Vote

Whoomp there it is! Tavis Smiley made this stunningly honest revelation on Democrats and their coveted black vote, on ABC while sitting next to Bill Kristol.

Let me call this one “the burnout of the turnout.”

Real Clear Politics

There’s a front-page story, George, as you know, in “The New York Times” today. They talk about the black vote is what the Democratic Party is relying upon now to save the Senate. News flash: if you’re relying on the black vote, in a midterm election — and I’m not suggesting that black voters don’t care about this — but if you’re relying on that vote, then I think it’s uninspired because we have double- and triple-digit unemployment in the African American community.

SMILEY: But if you’re black or brown, let’s be frank about this. If you’re black or brown, other than helping to save the Democrats’ hide, give me three good reasons [that] you turn out the vote this time.

Now I’ll catch hell for saying that…

See w/ video http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2014/10/19/tavis_smiley_no_good_reason_to_vote_if_youre_black_or_brown_other_than_helping_to_save_the_democrats_hide.html

So you smell what he’s cooking? It’s too much truth for prime time news or NYT though.

He was responding to a NYT piece: (discussing Clinton’s ad appealing to blacks)
Urging Blacks to Vote for Clinton for Obama’s Sake, and Their Own

THE AD The actor Morgan Freeman’s unmistakable voice poses a simple question: “What does showing up when it’s time to vote actually mean?” Images of President Obama — at his 2008 election-night rally, and leading thousands of people commemorating the 50th anniversary of the march in Selma — answer the question. “You care about protecting his legacy, and our progress.”

Get that handoff? You only “care” if you go support Hillary Clinton. So if you don’t vote, you don’t care and you are not preserving Obama’s legacy. The question is, or should be, why should blacks be interested in preserving the legacy of someone who didn’t care about them, and did nothing really for them?

You got that right… to protect Obama’s legacy not theirs. Then trust and hand off that support — and legacy — to Hillary. There are a lot of specious connections there.

The message: black voters need to propel Hillary to victory. But why?

For one thing, Hillary and her gal pal, AFT union president, Randi Weingartner, will do nothing for schools and education choice. And Clinton will do nothing for jobs or the economy either since the only one Hillary is concerned about is the pay to play, Washington-beltway economy.

But then does Obama — or blacks for that matter — actually believe Hillary is all that concerned with preserving and protecting his legacy? Believing a Clinton?

ISIS and Democrats: apples to apples

Of all the comparisons I have, the one I come back to time and again is comparing Democrats to ISIS, or more directly to Islamic radical terrorists. It works. Some people would say that is a bit extreme. But I think it applies and not in a forced way.

Why? First of all, because radicalism is big part of their strategy. And because terrorizing to influence people is, by nature, their goal. Political objectives of both may be murky at times but it drives their strategy.

Radicalism is the central connection. When I think about the Democrats, and party in particular, the term that always comes up is radicals. Obama confirmed that. After the last 8 years, it is hard to deny Democrats are radical. It’s their M/O and in their DNA.

Now that leaked emails about the inner workings of the DNC and Hillary’s campaign came out, it only confirms what we knew by their own words. Democrats’ talk amongst themselves exposes their mindset.

This could be a very long post…but it’s not. Or as Rep. Ted Poe from Texas says:
… “and that’s just the way it is.

Randomized thoughts: Labor Day postmortem election coverage

Since when is enforcing the law bad policy? It is. That shows where we are when someone gets beat up for standing up for the rule of law. Then they are called racists.

So somebody has to be the bad guy and enforce the law. When they do, they become the problem. Trump, police, border control, or Inspectors general. Even if FBI dared to enforce the law where Hillary or Obama are concerned, they would be ridiculed.

Border agents are told not to enforce the law. Baltimore and Ferguson showed officials making the conscious effort to stand down the police. In Benghazi, military got the message to stand down in response to a terrorist attack.

Hillary travels with the press now — or them with her. At least if the plane went down they would all be together in cause as in politics. But traveling with press in tow still does not equate to a press conference. She’s been traveling with the rich and famous, and the press wasn’t part of that. Now she will pretend that she is symbiotic with the press.

There is something ironic about seeing Hillary’s big new plane that says Stronger Together with the press loaded on board like baggage. Optics. “We will be flying at 30 thousand feet through plenty of cloud cover. There will be plenty of turbulence as long as I’m on board.”

The black vote, or African-American vote as they like to refer to it: Obama had a lock on that. And now Hillary — by virtue of running on his legacy — is supposed to have a lock on their vote. Why is she entitled to 90+ percent of the vote? No reason whatsoever.

Amazing that Blacks can support or vote in lockstep for Democrats. Of course, Democrats expect the same from Latinos or Hispanics, big labor organizers and unions. All aboard.

Where are all the disgruntled, protesting blacks from Chicago and elsewhere I’ve seen over the last few years? They made videos saying Obama did nothing for the black community. There’s a whole lot of anger in the black community against the establishment, too. Hillary is the face of establishment. But they are swinging for Hillary anyway?

Try that white America. When do all whites support the same Party or candidate by 90+ percent margins? So what is white America doing wrong?

The liberal spin machine cranks it up. Even Bernie is joining Biden, Obama, Kaine, Bubba to hit the campaign trail for Hillary. Now he asserts that Hillary is the face of their “political revolution.” Really? Hillary carries the banner for Wall Street, and her celebrity funders from Martha’s Vineyard and the Hamptons’ hedgefunders… and the people used and abused by special interests. Yep, she’s got it all. The corruption express hits the road.

Hillary Clinton: the pro-choice candidate

Are you ready for Hillary Choice 10.0?

Hillary and her campaign knows how to talk to “white, college-educated suburbanites” under 30 from middle income families… or any other ssubset of voters they want to target.

But they just can’t figure out how to talk to Louisianans who lost everything, who come from almost every demographic. That’s a heartless, calculated political hack.

But she knows how to talk to people in Martha’s Vineyard, Cape Cod, Nantucket, Hollywood, or with the Rothschilds to raise money. She has that language and message down pat. Choosing between 100K dollar a plate fundraiser and visiting Louisiana…. that is a no-brainer for Hillary.

So that is the kind of person Liberals and Democrats want in the White House picking winners and losers in the economy? (what Democrats/progressives do)

Hillary’s choice is failed

See, it all comes down to choices and priorities. Hillary shows us all the time which are more important. She chose lying over the truth on Benghazi. She chose a private server she could control over the government archive system. She chose to call the Benghazi victims’ families liars.

After lying about Benghazi, she said “What difference at this point does it make?”

She chose to coordinate “pay for play” with the Clinton Fundation for official US business. She chose deleting records and emails. She chose aligning with BLM over fallen cops and threats to police. She chooses open borders and sanctuary cities over national security. She chose censorship over free speech.

She chose her Wall Street connections and hedge fund owners over the people, She chose Huma Abedin and her Saudi connections over America’s interests. She chose not labeling Boko Haram‎‎ a terrorist group. She chose the bad Iranian deal. She chose to support Muslim Brotherhood as an ally. She chooses gun control over self defense. Hillary chose putting companies and miners out of business.

Hillary chooses lying over the truth almost every time she has a choice. She chose standing up a consulate in Benghazi. She chose ignoring security requests. She chose the side of a rapist over the brutalized rape victim. She chose laughing and demonizing a 12 yr old rape victim. She chose the baby-killing agenda and defending Planned Parenthood at any cost. She chooses teachers’ unions over parents’ choice for schools and education. She chose taking and charging hundreds of thousands for speeches, even from a charitable organization that helps youth.

She chose to attack victims of Bill Clinton’s “bimbo eruptions.” She chose breaking rules and ethics at the State Dep. She chooses elite fundraisers over flood victims in Louisiana. Now she chooses to label the entire right, anyone opposing her, as racists. Hillary is just a walking, talking, choosing machine.

Hillary is the definition of the wrong choice.

It takes a village to elect a Crook

f You might say it takes a village of morons and idiots to elect a crooked criminal like Hillary Clinton. And if they’ll put her in once, then they certainly cannot say no on round two.

Like we don’t already know that. But that’s where America is though. One criminal out, another ready to waltz through the White House door. She isn’t sneaking in. No, she is basically the crowned heiress, anointed. From one unindicted traitor to another. And don’t get me started on her obsession with the vagina vote.

Not all crooks are savvy enough to run for office, much less for President. It takes skill and coordination. The Clinton’s have put all their skills to use, to benefit themselves. Then they assume you cannot stop them. Their mission has been successful so far.

Hillary gave two speeches attacking Trump. The first was not enough, she had to go for another bite of the apple. Then she complains about being personally attacked.

So now the Donald unloaded on the Queen of Preen. It did not paint an attractive picture of the diva of destruction. He said she could be the most corrupt person to run for the office.

The big advantage Hillary has is Dems line up lockstep and repeat her attacks. It’s what they do. Are you ready for their thousand points of attack? Well, so far her all-star lineup included Bill Clinton, Joe Biden, Obama, Elizabeth Warren, and Cecil Richards. Now she met with Nancy Pelosi in the House caucus to strategize her chorus of Chihuahuas.(no offense to breed) How many will be needed and used before it’s over? A village.

Hey hey, ho ho…DJT has got to go

What do you know, another hollow Hollywoody has an epiphany involving Trump and feels the need to tell, warn us. It’s tied to slavery, surprise. This one demanded the entirety of the piece just to reply to the hubris.

John Legend: Trump Supporters are Like People Who Allowed Slavery to Happen in 19th Century

by Daniel Nussbaum – 15 Jun 2016 | Breitbart

Musician John Legend attempted to put Donald Trump’s popularity in historical perspective in an interview Tuesday, appearing to compare those who support the presumptive GOP presidential nominee to people in the 19th century who allowed slavery to continue without realizing it was an evil practice.

“We’re in a moment now where we have a major candidate for office that is being very racist and divisive,” Legend told Variety at the publication’s TV Summit in Beverly Hills on Tuesday. “I feel the need to call that out all the time because I don’t want us to feel like it’s impossible for our nation to go back to another dark place.”

The ten-time Grammy Award winner, a staunch backer of Democratic presumptive nominee Hillary Clinton, was at the event to discuss the WGN television series Underground, which centers on a group of slaves who escape a Georgia plantation via the Underground Railroad. Legend is an executive producer on the series.

“We, as a nation, can’t go back to a dark place, and it could happen if we let the wrong person into office and impose the wrong regime on this country,” Legend told Variety. “I’m sure people in the 1800s didn’t think they were evil people, but they allowed an evil institution to last for quite a long time.”

“We, as people who believe in equality and diversity and believe that every human being in this life matters, we need to be vigilant in making sure that we don’t elect leaders who are contradicting that belief,” he added.

Legend, a big fan and personal friend of President Obama, has repeatedly attacked Trump this election season with charges of racism. The musician rarely shies away from expressing his political opinions; most recently, he called on the Democrat Party to end its use of the superdelegate system in party primary elections.

Earlier this month, the singer joined Christina Aguilera and Stevie Wonder in Los Angeles for an all-star concert fundraiser for Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

Is that rich, considering he gushes support for Hillary Clinton?

“We’re in a moment now where we have a major candidate for office that is being very racist and divisive”
— and Clinton is not too divisive for you? We’re having a moment.

“I feel the need to call that out all the time because I don’t want us to feel like it’s impossible for our nation to go back to another dark place.” — Hillary taking us back to that dark corrupt place doesn’t scare you? All the corrupt scandal baggage has you begging and voting for more? I “feel” the need to point out your absurd stupidity.

“We, as a nation, can’t go back to a dark place, and it could happen if we let the wrong person into office and impose the wrong regime on this country.”— Funny those are exactly the reasons why not to support Hillary.  I do like the words “imposing the wrong regime” with all we’ve been through the last 8 years under unilateral, executive action because he could not ram it through Congress. Hillary now wants the wheel.

“We, as people who believe in equality and diversity, and believe that every human being in this life matters, we need to be vigilant in making sure that we don’t elect leaders who are contradicting that belief.”

Wow that’s the gold label of bullshit. Equality, with who they pander  to? Diversity again, no diversity allowed.  Every human being in this life… while there is only one Party that stands for life now – preserving or protecting the sanctity thereof. Abortion has racked up 59 million and he is supporting the favorite candidate of the abortion industry.  Talk about leaders and politicians who contradict that life belief.

So fall back on the Trump is racist canard. Racism is the preferred freebase attack for Dems — no proof needed. When in reality if you don’t belong to a special interest group, then you don’t really exist. So they have categories for African Americans, LGBTQ, Latinos, Hiapanics, Muslims, BLM, unions, environmentalists, professional educators and provocateurs et al. If you don’t fit, you must not count. No “none of the above.”
(Oh, and stay in your lane)

Hillary doesn’t care about every human being either. She abandoned 4 Americans in Benghazi when their lives depended on it. She caused the situation they were in, then she pulled the rug out like leading sheep to slaughter. She pushed Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. She’s an Ambassador for death and destruction, gladly taking money from merchants of evil. Trump is Legend’s boogieman — Trump is the Boogieman legend.

Hillary Down and Not Out

The incredible inevitable Hillary doesn’t look so inevitable. Her 22 point loss to Sanders gives her heartburn but thats about it. The wind up scandal doll takes a licking and keeps on ticking… off people she runs across.

It’s so beautiful, the idea of having a candidate people don’t trust. It creates so many options.

So now she takes her show cross-country with more lies. She says even though some people don’t support her she will continue to support them. I suppose it all depends on the meaning of the word “support”.

She was fashionably dressed in black to make her premature national victory speech. If a looming indictment doesn’t embarrass her, a landslide loss to Bernie won’t cause her to flinch.

PA AG Kane gets down and dirty

If it is one thing Democrats know how to do it is play dirty when the going gets rough. But in this case it is an Attorney General of Pennsylvania. She’s already had her own scandal going on that would make the Obama administration blush. Now she is releasing dirty emails of her enemies and accusers.

Kane has threatened to release more, and the state Capitol is ablaze with speculation about whose emails may be next in the drip-drip-drip of disclosures.

“It’s a mess. It’s just a freaking mess,” said John Morganelli, the Northampton County district attorney and a Democrat who at one time supported Kane. “Accusations and counter-accusations. And it gets worse every day. It’s like going into a war zone.”

Read at: http://www.aol.com/article/2015/11/05/porn-scandal-top-prosecutor-keeps-releasing-raunchy-emails/21259529/

Oh what the heck, add a few more charges. What difference at this point does it make? So now she does what Dems do , she pleads her innocence. Dig in and blame accusers. Oh what a tangled web she weaves. She even has some stupid people buying it.

She doesn’t belong in the AG office, she ought to be on Jerry Springer. Even the Democrat governor called on her to resign. But you know what Dems do. Or maybe Judge Judy could make room on her busy docket for this one?

Republican debate runs off the rails turns into all-out war as Donald Trump bashes John Kasich, Jeb Bush hits his protege Marco Rubio, and EVERYONE hammers CNBC’s moderators for losing control

Daily Mail

By David Martosko, Us Political Editor For Dailymail.com In Boulder, Colorado

  • CNBC hosts progressively lost control of the event
  • Texas Sen. Ted Cruz turned openly hostile, accusing them all of being Democrats intent on damaging the GOP field
  • Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie soon piled on the network
  • Donald Trump wrapped up his night by claiming he had strong-armed them into shortening the debate ‘so we could get the hell out of here’
  • ‘CNBC should be ashamed of how this debate was handled,’ Republican Party chairman Reince Priebus said

Wednesday’s Republican debate turned into a steel cage match in Boulder, Colorado as Donald Trump tangled with Ohio Gov. John Kasich, and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush called on Marco Rubio – his political protege – to resign his U.S. Senate seat.

As the CNBC hosts progressively lost control of the event, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz turned openly hostile, accusing them all of being Democrats intent on damaging the GOP field.

Correction it wasn’t about them losing control of the debate. They weren’t organized either though. It was a disaster of gotcha questions. Then came the all important one about fantasy football. The fantasy was about some modicum of objective moderators.

Even Reince Priebus threw out the criticism on CNN right afterward.

According to ABC 7 Denver, AP: (play by play coverage)

The chairman of the Republican National Committee says CNBC “should be ashamed” of how its moderators handled the third GOP presidential debate.

Reince Priebus (ryns PREE’-bus) says that the moderators did a disservice to their network, the candidates and the viewers. The two hours were dominated by candidates complaining that the moderators’ questions were hostile and based on inaccurate premises.

Priebus is calling the questioning “unfortunate” and says he will “fight to ensure future debates allow a more robust exchange.”

Well, when even Priebus gets his attitude on, it must be pretty obvious.  A venue more reminiscent of pro-wrestling, the moderators got into the fray breaking the one major rule of journalism: not to become the story.  But it won’t matter because the Dems will spin it as sore losers not wanting to answer tough questions. Hey, we saw what Dems did with the Hillary hearing, masters of propaganda….disinformation.

Benghazi’s haunting hearing

The fundamental difference between me and Democrats is simple:

    Democrats are sick of the Benghazi hearings.
    And I’m sickened by the Benghazi hearings

It takes a village of government bureaucracy and all the Democrats to defend Hillary. But she knows nothing, and Dems don’t care, about security Chris Stevens needed.

Hillary again announces she is taking responsibility. Then she promptly denies she had any accountability for the security shortage. Blame that on Stevens.

Hillary’s talking point of the day was Stevens knew the risks involved. Okay, so that makes it all better. He knew what he was getting into, uh?

A case study in liberal denial and deflection and typical behavior.

Hillary lied, people died, Hillary lied, then Hillary ran for President.

Where have we gone?

“The Democrats would revise history to rationalize a return to bigger government, higher taxes, and moral relativism. The Democrat Party has forgotten its origins as a party of work, thrift, and self-reliance. But they have not forgotten their art for dissembling and distortion.

The Democrats are trapped in their compact with the ideology of trickle-down government, but they are clever enough to know that the voters would shun them if their true markings were revealed.

America had its rendezvous with destiny in 1980. Faced with crisis at home and abroad, Americans turned to Republican leadership in the White House.”

This is a quote from Republicans platform back in 1992. From then until now, one must ask “what happened?” We appear now to be a ship without a rudder, stranded in a stormy sea. Where are those tried and true principles that supposedly guide us? Have they been moth-balled in favor of Big-Government Lite rhetoric?

Along came George W who arrogantly claimed to have redefined conservatism and Republicans, (unbeknownst to conservatives) with his compassionate hubris he sailed us into uncharted waters of amnesty plans, appointments, enforcement failures, all while failing on most occasions to make the case for true conservative valuess. He waffled on this or that and then, after trying to foist crony Harriet Miers on us, gave us a nominees that again deceived. John Roberts turned into John Dud. He had already given a peace offering on the 4th circuit to Dems. (which meant nothing to Dems)

Then came not so popular President W deriding his own base who protested Miers. He steamed full speed ahead despite all conservatives lobbying efforts and letters to the contrary. But the Left didn’t like Bush and never would. Who was he fooling? What made him start down the road to concessions? Only he could know but it didn’t work. Appeasement was not the bomb, it never is with the radical left.

And leaders in Congress did virtually the same until turning over their majority to the libs — who were already quite skilled at minority power. Now along comes Trump to remind the RNC of its long trail of inconsistencies. Some deep irony there.

More from ’92… as painful a reminder as that is:

“While our goals are constant, we are willing to innovate, experiment, and learn. We have learned that bigger is not better, that quantity and quality are different things, that more money does not guarantee better outcomes. We have learned the importance of individual choice—in education, health care, child care—and that bureaucracy is the enemy of initiative and self-reliance. We believe in empowerment, including home ownership for as many as possible. We believe in decentralized authority, and a bottom-line, principled commitment to what works for people.

We believe in the American people: free men and women with faith in God, working for themselves and their families, believing in the value of every human being from the very young to the very old.”

Have we really learned the tough, necessary lessons? Are we now better for it? Are we now defining progressives, socialists and Marxists as they should be? Are we telling the truth about the Left’s agenda and schemes to correct the record? Are we seizing leadership opportunities to provide the kind of example of conservative values our country so desperately needs? Or are we cowering in a corner declaring to be beaten before we even throw the first punch? Shamefully, I say it is more of the latter. Time and time again we have seen deals being cut that display no conservative values, gaining nothing.

For a moment in time I almost lost my head and optimistically thought we returned to foundations and principles. But Jeb Bush came saying it’s his turn — to try the moderate, Rodney King approach to liberals who will never be appeased and always demand more. Compromise to progressives only amounts to doing it their way, and giving them the credit. I regained my sanity seeing the defense of Jeb Bush. Did we ever want to see a dynasty, be it on the Democrat side or the Republican side?

Yet here we are again fighting for our values to be relevant in a system given over to thugs, elites and special interests. We haven’t yet found the way to master real leadership. It must come from within, but our leaders still have not gotten that message. They even resign in a strategic way to hedge the opportunity for the establishment’s benefit.

But the RNC acts as if that is not an issue. We claim to want to move forward while estabos dredge up people who only exhibit the worst of the past. We provide the big hammer to our opponents and then ask them to hit us over the head. Only we don’t even play the victim very well. We blame everything only on ourselves — on stoopid people and “right-wing extremists,” not Estabo leaders. Then we proceed to ask for more of the same treatment. So reactionary disenfranchised voters embraced Trump as an Apprentice.

The shark-infested waters are just begging to be fed. Some in the Republican Party are determined not to disappoint them. It’s hard to stop this abuse of the base that’s been tolerated till it can’t be anymore. Yes, there are a lot of golden quotes in those old platforms and some good lessons, if we could only see them.

Now, true to the form of uncharted course, it threw Jeb Bush at us along with a wide selection of alternatives that were supposed to be chum to bait us so their selection would rise to the top. Ironically, his “Right to Rise” pac is in your face elitism. Jeb’s scolding lectures on the campaign trail aren’t much of an appetizer either.

Newsmax on Right to Rise pac:

There were also at least 20 donors who gave the super PAC $1 million, including healthcare investor Miguel Fernandez, California billionaire William Oberndorf, Iranian-American diplomat Hushang Ansary, along with his wife Shahla, and hedge-fund manager Louis Bacon.

The 236 donors who gave six-figure checks also include former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman, Citadel Investment Group founder Kenneth Griffin, and Houston businessman Robert McNair, Politico reports.

Jeb was a founding member and head of Michael Bloomberg’s foundation, which supports all kinds of liberal agenda items. Not in ancient history, he only stepped down prior to starting his pac and running for president. Just last year a major part of its effort was to lobby “foreign nations to ease restrictions on abortion.” Not exactly a Mexico City Policy.

Now he distances himself from the agenda that was a central priority of the foundation. I hope the money he got paid was worth it. He didn’t have to sign off or vote on it, as he asserts, but he was part and parcel to the agenda. For him to claim how pro-life he is/was is ludicrous when this is the very last place he was before running. What other GOP was promoting abortion around the globe? As for Jeb, no wonder George W is getting riled up.

Politico said:

“I don’t know if it’s panic or paranoia in Miami, but they are losing [Scott] Walker people to Marco, and if you say what’s true, they get mad,” said one Bush donor, who spoke to POLITICO on the condition of anonymity. “I think it’s just reflective of what’s been going on for the past month or so and the way the race, at least in the establishment lane, has shifted. It’s really Jeb or Marco now. Marco’s fundraising has picked up, and Jeb’s has stayed flat.”

Now they will begin shifting the estabo steam from Jeb to Rubio.

Maybe I’ll post more highlights and low expectations from the past.

It’s about the about, stupid

This post is about the about. Allow me to explain. We always talk about what the left or globalists are doing and reacting to it. Sometimes we get so busy with documenting what is going on, or the media does, that we don’t spend enough time on getting the bigger picture. By we, I mean the public at large. Those here know better.

A good explanation of this whole subject is a great article Pepp posted on her blog. It diagnoses the cause and effect of basically the treason going on. I recommend it. This is only one aspect of it. We’ve all been aggravated and frustrated with what is going on. We see stories or examples in schools, media and public but it deserves a closer look.

why photo: WHY!?? OneWord-Why.jpgIt all reminded me of something a teacher used to say that stuck with me: “it’s not enough to know what or how to do something, but you have to know why.” That coincides with the article explaining the media connection. It is tough to explain, but stay with me.

I believe, as that article suggested, people are just being fed the scripted play by play news. They report just enough of something to cover the surface. And we’ll know what they want us to. Yet we’re always lectured about context. The context of what is happening is important. A person can be informed but what does it really mean? So it is possible to see the play by play news without understanding the context of the whole picture. Media can only be blamed for part of it. The rest is on the people.

So to put it together as to what is happening in real time with what it means is incredibly important. “You have to know the why too” – or why it matters. It is possible to do things without knowing why in which case it turns you into just a machine. No one wants to be a robot. Even monotonous things have some significance in the greater picture. It’s the same way with current events. You can, as Tom Snyder said, watch the pictures and words fly through the air, but we must grasp the contextual meaning. I see that missing more and more with some people. It’s enough for them only to know what happened.

Seeing the Democrats’ whole platform turn to socialism disturbs us because we know what it means. Those that don’t, or don’t care, are the same mindset of Dems who just go along with it. We are in a pretty bad, dark place when people don’t see why socialism is such a bad thing? History won’t be kind to those who don’t bother to understand.

It’s hard enough even for conservatives on the right to avoid this syndrome by making a constant conscious effort to understand the why seeing the big picture. That is the central problem and theme. So even when we know what is going on, one may not understand the significance, or care to. One can see what happens but not know the agenda.

Democrats have played this “we know” game. They play dumb with the facts. They know enough. They’ve gone to the point of developing a faux reality. Then there is what they want to see or believe. It is convenient for them to accept what they want and discard the rest. Anything inconvenient to their faux reality is wrong. Thus. Democrats’ exuberance for socialism at the debate, or raising the debt limit — never mind what it means.

Context matters

People bought into ObamaCare and all the hype. After the fact, Johnathon Gruber came out to boast how Obamacare passed only thanks to “the stupidity of the American voter” and the lies they were told. Even then Dems didn’t want to believe it. So they carried all the talking points and became useful idiots. They attacked Gruber. Even when known it’s a lie they act as if it was not. Not just a lie, but everything was constructed on one big lie.

funny quote photo: Bye bye Sanity... SanityDeparted-NoForwardingAddress_zpsc1a699ab.jpgThere’s an alternative reality aspect just as there is with Obama. From Benghazi to the green agenda, to Obama’s daily narrative. They buy into it as willing dupes. Even when framed in the most naive way, one should not be able to deny the truth. Not so with Democrats. They can block out anything inconvenient or countering Obama’s narrative. Hillary comes out, ironically, to say “what difference at this point does it make?” That is how it works with the Left. What difference do the facts make? What difference does the truth make? What difference does reality make? What difference does the bigger-what it means-picture make? None. Whether it is they can’t see it or just don’t want to.

So we saw it in virtually every scandal. Fast and Furious, a manufactured scandal. It didn’t matter. In IRS, maliciously targeting people didn’t matter. Solyndra, nothing. Obama playing politics with issues and scandals, nada. Then when Obama came along saying not a smidgen of corruption in the IRS, they repeated it. They knew this much: if they encounter a problem with that statement, Obama and Dems would issue a new one to explain it. That much they depend on. The left only has to repeat the talking points. Obama’s election, reelection, now Hillary and her record of scandals — it doesn’t matter. They become useful idiots.

When Obama calls on Israel to stop the excessive use of force, and State makes an equivalence with Israel and Palestinians committing terrorism, facts and truth don’t matter. Does he not know Israel is under attack? Sure, how can anyone avoid knowing? But he denies it and implies an equivalency. Democrats fall in line and do the same. The Crusades were resurrected as an equivalency to barbaric ISIS terrorists in an Islamic caliphate. Yet Obama cannot admit their religious, Islamic basis for a caliphate.

Hahahahaha!!! photo 529972_3782902340029_937477600_n.jpgThe left claims to believe in the process until it goes against their faux reality. Then, the process like the Benghazi committee is corrupt What difference at this point does it make? Hillary could have been talking about her Democrat base. So they call it a political stunt. But the Benghazi scandal was caused by Obama playing politics. Now the excuse and defense is it is a political witch hunt.

The same thing applied to the Green Agenda when one by one the truth came out. Leftists went into denial pretending it wasn’t so. The same mentality applied to the IRS scandal. The about part, the bigger picture and meaning is ignored. They don’t know or don’t care, either one amounts to the same thing. First, the Left claims facts show there is no there there. Then, when shown, they simply deny it. It’s not just a case of drinking the Kool Aid, they deny the truth when faced with it. They are useful idiots that follow Obama’s lead and Democrat spinsters who never met a scandal they couldn’t spin their way out of. Whether is was Jonestown or under Obama, it has the same effect.

What’s a Liberal Mayor to Do?

Well, if you are Rahm Emanuel and it is Chicago, there can be only one answer to that question? Raise taxes… it’s always the solution.

So Rahm proposes raising taxes a half-billion dollars, or a measly 500 million, just to tide them over until, well, the next tax increase.

He suggested a choice between drastic cuts and raising taxes. Now who always wins that battle? Right. It could have something to do with big union contracts and the inability to keep these big lucrative contracts flowing like wild honey. Incidentally, the one business probably thriving above all others in Chicago are the Funeral parlors. (another story)

Good thing “Chicago is thriving” as he called it, otherwise it might not be able to afford the tax hike.(sort of a joke) It’s what Rahm calls “progressive” so at least there’s that.
Rahm Emanuel gave a speech where he said:

AOL

“In short, if we were to fund our pensions with cuts alone, our city services would become unreliable. Our city would become unlivable. And that would be totally unacceptable.”

Isn’t that one hell of an admission? (think about that) Outrageous. I mean if the cost to float those contracts requires a 20% cut to the police force, losing 48 fire departments and 40% of firefighters — just to afford them — then what in the world is in those contracts? Wouldn’t any sane person say wonder if and how they could afford those contracts?

So the answer is to raise the taxes — good thing they can afford them, uh? Right, rather save the contracts by raising taxes. No losses there. Or tell people that they will lose all their services they already paid for, if the city doesn’t raise taxes.(Is there a hostage negotiator in the house) Don’t worry because he calls it a “progressive” approach — who can dislike anything progressive? Guess what? Even Chicago Dems do not like hikes.
