Hand me down my foil hat! Conspiracies abound!
It has been said by the religiously inclined that the biggest trick the devil ever pulled off was to make people think he didn’t exist. It allows him to run wild and wreak havoc unchecked. Unaware of the source of evil, people can’t stop him.
Similarly, the greatest ally of a corrupt government is the conspiracy theorist. Often labeled conspiracy freaks, these folks – if they are not too nutty in their appearance – tend to grab some headlines at first. If their complaints don’t pass the smell test, they quickly fade from the public forum. The more outrageous and easily dismissed, the quicker that happens, and the moniker freak is assigned. This is often well-deserved. The most egregious that comes immediately to mind is the video of the twin towers with the second 767 digitally removed. The viewer sees a whole shaped like an aircraft suddenly appear, for no apparent reason, in the side building followed by a fiery explosion. It was quite an effort to promote a silly argument, but sociopaths are often determined people.
The Devils in DC
The problem with having these freaks gaining press is that when real life gets too uncomfortable, we can simply label the speaker a conspiracy freak and feel good about ignoring their complaint. And that is where the real trick lies. In the case of our current government, we have been played for idiots time and time again because when confronted with serious charges, the target would either treat the story as a conspiracy theory or come right out and label the herald a freak. From Fast and Furious to Mrs. William Jefferson Clinton’s emails, legitimate charges have been thwarted by thin straw man arguments and amused dismissal. White House press skank, Josh Earnest does this every single day. And he gets lots of practice because this administration is by far the most corrupt, totalitarian cabal in our history. Earnest doesn’t spin from that podium; he lies from behind a smirk that is utterly contemptuous of criticism or honest discourse. And our pathetic press; they simply record the moment and go for cocktails. The few who do challenge the administration will only go so far for fear of loosing their press passes to the fetid sewer that our executive mansion has become. They are not digging for information, nor for that matter reporting what is occurring right in front of them.
Just look at Mrs. Clinton’s email scam. She erased them. She said so. Her staff said so. The State department said so. The explanations were so childish, so breathtakingly disingenuous that one is left yelling questions at the TV that the press should be asking. Among the questions would be: What charges will the former Secretary be facing? What would the likely sentence be if she were found guilty? What about her lying to congress about Benghazi (the US was running guns to Syria via Turkey, as it turns out, to the wrong people)?
Of course, such questions about that woman being charged with anything would be met with the freak treatment mentioned above – and most of the press would go along with it.
But when the truth is this obvious, a sycophantic press is not the problem. We are. It’s easy to dismiss unpleasantness with dismissive labels, but in the case of this government, it is perilous to do so. We need to stand up. We need to deal with what has happened and is happening to our country.
But the above complaints are all prologue. The most immediate priority is relieving Obama of any dealings with Iran. We have watched idly as he lied about his intentions to deal with their nuclear program. The entire three-year production has been a lie. When the administration said at the beginning of negotiations that Iran was 7-10 years from breakout (that point at which they could weaponize nukes) every literate human being knew that was a lie already. And yet, when he said he intended to prevent them from attaining a nuke, the press pretended to believe that too. Late last year, the breakout point was 12 – 18 months. Still a lie, and we were already lifting sanctions!!!! When congress said they wouldn’t allow Obama to enact an agreement on his own the American Emperor said that it is silly at this point to quibble because Iran was only about a month from breakout so we need to have this agreement to keep the genie in the bottle for ten more years. News flash: Nothing will stop Iran from weaponizing. That was never the point. More on this later.
While witnessing lie after lie, what did Boehner and McConnell do? They “compromised” with Obama in the way in which they would be “allowed” to review this worthless sham document.
Here are the two greatest offenses. One, McConnell and Boehner are the loyal opposition representing a separate and equal branch of a constitutional government. They do not work for the White House. They marshal votes for their position and issue orders, in the form of bills, to the White House. Such orders can be vetoed and that veto possibly overridden, but the bills carry the weight of the American will. Yet these two ineffectual idiots ask for allowances rather than insisting on doing their duty. In behaving this way all through these years, they have facilitated offense number two.
Next Time: How do we take our country back?
The Devils Holds a Fire Sale
Here, I stand corrected on the piece I wrote earlier about losing Egypt. I allowed for cowardice and incompetence as the reason for the United States losing our influence in the Middle East and North Africa; and cowardice may be a part of it. Sadly, there seems to be a more devious reason. The Obama/Jarrett cabal is not and has not been working to protect the interests of the United States abroad. Quite to the contrary, they have been actively seeking the advantage of a few Muslim countries over ours.
Look how far the administration has perverted its original stance on Iran. Since declaring his unwavering determination to prevent Iran from acquiring nukes in 2012, we have been watching Obama lobby congress, directly and through the press. They are working strenuously to protect Iran's nuke ambitions and produce an agreement that provides this country with absolutely no satisfaction while facilitating the production of nuclear weapons by Iran's phony religious nut bags (read: ayatollahs.)
Don’t take my word for it. Watch the pattern develop. From their starting point, Obama has steadily backed away from the original plan of complete prevention of Iranian nukes and possible regime change to accomplish that goal. From the very start the administration fought against sanctions. Throughout the process, they nagged congress to lessen and then lift sanctions. While the Kabuki Theater they called negotiations played out and sanctions were reduced, Iran became more bellicose. They were downright cocky. They were clearly told that Obama was in their corner, not in ours. “Negotiators” would meet in plush surroundings in Geneva and go on record with phony positions, none of which was intended to go on paper in any real way. And as Iran raced to improve their nuke program, the Administration dug in its heels – against the United States Congress!
UPDATE: As of this week, the Jarrett administration has announced through their the spokesbitch Josh Earnest, that the June 30th deadline (now the 4th deadline?) isn't really the deadline. Whatever deal they come away with will require further negotiations to really, REALLY get right. Please, no sanctions on our Iranian friends during this delicate period.
We are watching your president, the C-in-C of your armed forces, and naked Islamophile, slow walk a scam to ensure that our sworn enemy, total religious nut bags, get a nuke to lord over the world. When it is over, they'll say, "Well, golly. We did our best, but they got the Bomb anyway. Sneaky bastards."
And have Boenher and McConnell stopped all action on any bill to address this insanity? No! during this time, they have voted to give Mr. Executive Authority enhanced trade negotiating authority! Why are those two morons still in their seats? Why are they not out of power? House and Senate: Grow balls! Dump the morons and throw a stick in the spokes of Obama's girl bike! NOW!
And it gets worse my friends, much worse. Question: If Obama/Jarrett really wanted to keep Iraq stable and not make a mockery of the loss of American lives there, why would they have waited until 30 days before the expiration of the Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA) to do anything to maintain our interests? And when they finally decided to act, why did they send Joe “Duh” Biden to do the heavy lifting? My previous answer allowed for stupidity. I now repudiate that assertion for one much clearer. Barack Obama, Commander in Chief of our Armed Forces, the Chief Executive for the government of these United States, fully intended to leave behind a power vacuum for his friends in Iran to fill. The same Obama wants the vilest of Muslim countries to have a nuke. The same Barack Hussein Obama and Iranian-born Valerie Jarrett fought the United States Senate in an attempt to preserve the power of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. Fortunately for the citizens of Egypt, better people who don’t think religious nut baggery makes for good governance prevailed and ousted the nut bags despite the assistance provided to the MB by Obama.
The insanity continues. Obama knew he couldn’t just walk away from Afghanistan. But even with his “surge”, a lame pretense of force costing American lives, Obama made it nakedly clear to those he favors there that they should just sit tight, we’ll be gone soon. Hell, he announces every withdrawal with each strategic adjustment.
And those who know better, Republican and Democrat have allowed this to happen. Whether watching the cabal gather power unto itself domestically with Obamacare and illegal immigration activity, or allowing the cabal to ignore the law in the cases of Fast and Furious, the IRS scandal, Bill’s wife and her emails, those senators and congressmen have done the United States and their own institutions a grave disservice. And they have compounded that immeasurably by allowing the President to sell us out to the power mongers in countries like Iran.
Allow Me a Broad Extrapolation.
Here’s the foil hat part. Why, since Clinton, have we had elections where the county is so closely split on Election Day? The whores and hacks of the political class tell us it is because we are so polarized. But when have there not been at least two poles of influence in politics? There is nothing inherently wrong with polarization. That’s just a talking point both parties indulge in, much like both parties exploiting illegal immigrants for their own gains – Dems for the illegal voters and Reps for the slave labor the Chamber of Commerce loves. Why is the vote always so close? With a White House devoid of ethics and congress behaving like a nakedly corrupt lapdog, does it become plausible that the leadership in both parties have rigged the paperless vote to reflect a slowly modulating split of power between themselves? With paperless ballots, it’s easy as hell to do. We have never had a period of so many four-year cycles where one party just barely beats out the other and only those who seem to be already out of favor lose their seats. Clearly, if I am only half right about what I’ve written, this government has no ethical or constitutional compass.
Have we reached that point? Have we become more debased than Mexico? Does the reader even give a damn that I ask? Or am I just one of those freaks?
