The Stories They don’t want you to Care About…

Or, Why I Love the Holidays.

I enjoy the Holidays not just for the Overeating and Drinking too much, but for the News. I know… weird, right?

Well, actually the Holidays offer up the News no one wants you to know. If ‘They’ can’t dump the stories on Weekends when you are not paying attention then ‘They’ shoot for the closest Holiday. And no season offers the length and breadth of your ‘not paying attention’ than Thanksgiving to Christmas to New Years. Yeah, the other Holidays are good… but the reigning King remains that time when the old year meets the beginning of the new one.

So if you really like to see what nobody is interested in you seeing, but ‘They’ want to be able to say “We ran That Story!”, scan the news feeds over the last 4-weeks.

You may be amazed.

And you might just join me in my hatred of ‘They’.


Hubris

(A re-post from 052813 in light of a renewed effort by the current Administration to accuse us of creating “PHONY SCANDALS”.)

 

Like a small flash it hit me after reading this quote from a DNC fundraising email:

“They’ve (Republicans) been caught red-handed making up so-called ‘scandals’ out of thin air to stir up false rumors of vast ‘cover-ups’ happening in the White House,”  Full story here.

First, let’s address the substance of this statement by listing what must be “made up out of thin air”…

This is what really happened, AKA the Truth, according to the DNC:

A U.S. Diplomat and three security personnel, two of whom did not fly to the rescue by stealing an airplane, were not killed on Sept. 11, 2012 by Al Qaeda militants.

The State Department, for some inexplicable reason, did not blame the event on a you tube video that 19 people viewed prior to the non-existent attack by random folks living in Benghazi.

The Administration did not register the 11 other Benghazi victims under pseudonym’s when they were admitted to various hospitals for the injuries they did not receive during the non-attack.

The Internal Revenue Service did not admit targeting Conservative groups, who are perceived by the current Administration as opposition, for additional scrutiny.

One of those running things at the IRS did not plead the fifth in order to not incriminate herself.

The Department of Justice did not secure the phone records for 100 Associated Press reporters, which did not include ancillary business and personal phone numbers.

The Department of Justice did not secure months of e-mail, which included addresses for his contacts, from a FOX News reporter without his knowledge or agreement.

These ridiculous non-facts are just more of the same from the Republican Party…. stop reading here and send the Democrat National Committee your money now.

Or, keep reading a little longer.

The small flash I mentioned earlier was a word…  Hubris.

Hubris /ˈhjuːbrɪs/, also hybris, from ancient Greek ὕβρις, means extreme pride or arrogance. Hubris often indicates a loss of contact with reality and an overestimation of one’s own competence or capabilities, especially when the person exhibiting it is in a position of power.  Full definition here.

Taking a short trip down memory lane, I recall the second year of President Obama’s first term.  At the beginning of that year he was being roundly criticized for appearing on television with unfettered frequency never before matched by any sitting president.  By the end of that year his party had lost the control of the House to the Republicans.  This happened to the dismay of those who predicted victory based on the turnout from his huge 6-point win 24-months prior.

I remember his demeanor being one of shock… for several months he seemed sullen and in a state of disbelief given such results.  I’m not sure he’s been quite the same since.

But, Barack Obama genuinely believed his victory over one of the oldest, “whitest”, most “war-mongering”, least Republican candidates in 2008 was not because he was a young, articulate, African-American… he believed it was because he had a mandate for his Socialist Ideas.  He actually thought the voters were listening to the meaning of his words… not just enjoying the beat, and hopped up on the desire to feel like their lives mean something… historic.

If you take a moment and slip on his size 12’s, you could understand this.  It’s undeniable, He spelled out his plan in “Blue Print for America”, his books, his speeches and with the people he surrounded himself with.  He was not keeping his Socialist values a secret… just ask Joe the Plumber.  Frankly, just ask any of us who were screaming at the top of our lungs exactly because we DID read his Blue Print, speeches and books.

President Barack Obama believed, and still believes, that the masses agree with him.  To him, The Ends of Social Justice… being Equality of Outcome with Government at the Center of every Solution… is justified by the Means of having the U.S. kneel before the world while using Government Force to destroy any Opposition to the Socialist Utopia.

I suggest the reason we are seeing all of these “non-existent” scandals come to light is a brilliant by-product of our founding Fathers Constitutional design.  This type of malfeasance will always surface in a transitional government.  When individuals within ones own party are interested in securing power for themselves, and your time is up… as mandated by law, anything you’ve been doing is up for review.  When I say anything, I mean trampling on the First, Second and Fourth Amendments.  It has to scream for Pepto-Bismol when the Benghazi Whistleblowers are all Democrats… who then are testifying that we (the U.S.) could have sent assistance which might have resulted in saving the lives… of a Democrat Ambassador and his Democrat security personnel.

It also has to cause his ulcer to bleed when his fellow Democrats join the chorus of those demanding investigations of the IRS for political targeting.

Finally, he and his Administration must be suffering from Elitist Arrogance when they start using the Countries Security Services to investigate the Press for doing their job… well, at least when the Press are doing the part of their job which the Administration finds disagreeable.  The Press… the one ally the Leftists count on.  The enablers of government vice.  (The press giving any oxygen to this is unbelievable.  Talk about biting the hand that feeds you…)

I will state again, nothing is going to cause this President to be Impeached.  It will not happen.  And he knows it.

I don’t care if Congress finds out this Administration was selling missiles to Syrian Rebels associated with Al Qaeda.  I don’t care if they find out the IRS was coordinating their efforts to oppress Conservative Opposition with the FBI, DHS and OSHA.  I don’t care if they find out transcripts exist of the AP reporters personal calls to their spouses, girlfriends, boyfriends, etc. which are being passed around DOJ for laughs.  And, I don’t care if we discover that help was truly available to be sent to Benghazi but was told to stand down because it might appear to be too “American”, or as the Leftists put it too “Militaristic”, which we also find out was the same reason they were there without the appropriate security in the first place.  I don’t even care if they find out the President is sleeping with Valerie Jarret and Susan Rice, at the same time, then lied about it under oath in order to escape a sexual harassment lawsuit based on law he directly championed.

Only an extremely over blown sense of competency, arrogance and undeserved righteousness could fuel such behavior.

However, none of this matters.  We have 3 1/2 more years of this guy and his Fellow Travelers.  That’s just the way it is.

But that doesn’t mean we have to sit by and watch them destroy what little of the Constitution and Bill of Rights which remain intact.

Get ready for the mid-terms.  (Update 112014… we won.  but it might not be enough if we still have no spine.)

It’s possible they believe there are no scandals… Hubris would explain that too.

If you make sh*t up, then write it down… and read it, you might just begin to believe it.  Such is the way of the Leftist.


If They Can Stop Just One Terrorist Attack, It Is Worth It

I’ve always had a soft spot for Stormtroopers… Good Guys Wear White right?

The Press who Love Too Much.

Battered Press Syndrome his Horrible.
They’re Victims of an Abuser they Love, an Evil they hold close.

They feel Trapped in the very relationship that is doing them irreparable harm.

In despair they look around for safety…

They don’t know where to turn and live in fear of retribution should they do anything to get away.

We watch this day in and day out from the outside, helpless…
We try to understand when they cry on our shoulder after yet another horrific episode. We listen through the sobs as they recount the stories of abuse while also proclaiming their love of the very Demon responsible. We attempt to grasp why they refuse to leave the side of the one who clearly hates them so much.

We encounter the One responsible every day, and we hold our tongue in fear of the harm that could come to our friend… and possibly us.

We want to let The Press know that we are all in this together. We want them to know that we Care.

But down deep, even though they are being abused, the abuse they have dealt us in the past secretly keeps us from being able to say it truthfully.

Sadly, these relationships often end tragically… violently… with a path of destruction and innocent victims strewn as far as the eye can see.

They are on their own.

They know it.

They will stay with Him… because they Love too Much.


This is not about President Barack Obama.

All of this is about President Hillary Clinton.

While all of the scandals are a game changer…

Don’t fool yourself. The Press is not going to suddenly stop being Socialist and embrace an ideology of Free-Markets, Liberty, Freedom and Personal Responsibility.

What is going on here is the Hillary 2016 Campaign getting a head start.

The way the Press looks at it is, if Obama falls out of favor in the eyes of the American people then all the better. This allows Hillary to run in contrast. It allows her to be the “Good” Liberal… the only one who can truly bring “Change” to government.

Nobody… nobody… nobody is going to Impeach Barack Obama.  It will not happen.  Ever.

What is going to happen now, however, is the Hillary protection effort.

That’s it.

Obama is being cast, intentionally, as “disengaged” and “uninterested”.  These are not criminal actions.  While he is “responsible”, he is not culpable… he’s just tired, and finished trying to bring change to terrible, terrible Washington.

This will be the limit of protection the Press will afford Obama. They know he is done. They know he has entered his lame duck status and there is no juice left to push his agenda Forward.

The only person the Press cares to shelter now is Hillary.

Damage control in underway.  The Media knows they have lost the Mid-Term Elections at this point.  2014 is over.  They just need to get through the next number of months without any provable Progressive criminality presenting itself and the preservation of the Socialist gains they have made over the last 6 years.

Let’s watch… shall we?


Odium

The Culture of Elitism.

In effect… those who consider themselves Elite, Hate you.  They Hate your Freedom.  They Hate your Liberty.  They Hate your Input.  They Hate the fact you can Resist their power.  They Hate the Constitution of the United States… and they really Hate that they must beg you for your vote.  But when they DO get your vote they do everything they can to destroy the protections we all enjoy… regardless of the outcome.

The Culture of Elitism has displayed itself throughout the actions of this current Administration.

The Obama Administration has sent people into foreign countries to represent you and your ideas… and when in trouble, left them there to fend for themselves… and they died.  But, any other approach would have been “too militant”, and too reminiscent of the “Cowboys” who have resided in the White House years past.

The question we are looking for regarding Benghazi is not “Who” did it, but “Why” were we lied to about it for months?

I believe we were lied to regarding the assassination of our Diplomat in Libya because of a Socialist approach to foreign policy.  This approach promotes a softer and more gentle posturing of our representatives abroad.  It requires a far lower level of security to not seem so “American”.   And when something goes wrong it requires only the light slap of a gloved hand.  This is because the people running our country see all the worlds ill’s to be the fault of the United States.  They are the real-life Blame America First crowd.

To address some of those on the Left who view the Assassination of our Diplomat, and representatives, in Benghazi a “non-issue” and cannot find any importance in the event, let me help.  It is a Sense of Superiority that killed those men.  It is Liberal Socialism on parade.

It is the belief of the current Progressive Administration that they are blessed with a brilliance never seen leading the United States.  It is the belief that the world will “love” and “respect” the United States for the very first time.  It is the idea that finding common ground with those that feel wronged by the United State’s and posturing in “a non-threatening way”, is all that’s required to execute a successful foreign policy.

It is exactly the quest to rectify such a colossal mistake resulting from misguided governance that demands the exposure of those who find it imperative to lie to the American people for months just to continue those exact same policies unmolested.

It is exactly the cover-up… the cover-up of this Progressive Elitist approach to foreign relations, which the media has ignored for 9-months, that threatens all of our personnel overseas.

It is a sad testament to their effectiveness that the idea of a cover-up is dismissed by the media as paranoia.  Will the press wake up, as now we are confronted by a concerted conspiracy on the part of this Administration to destroy groups teaching the masses about the Constitution, using the force of the IRS?  It should be the smelling salts of Government Tyranny that alerts them to the loss of their immunity when the Administration secures the phones records of major media outlets.  If there is anyone remaining in this country who does not have a skeptical view of government, they must be shaken violently.

Sadly, I believe, the press will not do its job in explaining to the American people the jeopardy our Individual Rights are placed in when we allow Elitists to govern.  The simple reason for this is the members of the press consider themselves “Elite”.  (Apparently reading a teleprompter or signing up to travel to remote areas of the world, where no one else wants to go, and crafting a 30-second piece on the experience elevates one to “Elite” status.)  But in the end it’s the Superiority Complex, Stupid.  The mindset that you are stupid and they are not.  The idea that you need them to handle your life for you. It’s a mindset that permeates every institution from the Media, Education, Military, all three branches of Government all the way down to your City Council.

Elitism is like a Virus… it can be found everywhere, keeps getting stronger and eventually kills people.
