What if it’s not the Russians? (Previously: Picking a Fight with the CIA…)

(Originally posted 121214.  What if it’s not the Russians offering up Thousands of Socialist E-mails? Just sayin’…)

One must ask why.

While the release of the ‘CIA Sucks Report’ was a foregone conclusion given Diane Feinstein’s drive to leave a parting gift to her Leftist base…

I remain convinced the timing of the report was designed to remove Jonathon Gruber from the headlines and allow the mainstream liberals something else to put on the evening news.  (I continue to believe Gruber, and his honesty about how Liberals see American’s, is profoundly damaging.)

That aside, the report begs the question “Why?”.

Why would you rehash what we already know?

Why would you emphasize enhanced terrorist interrogation techniques and our efforts to keep them alive while in captivity such as Rectal Feeding?  (I would remind you all that there are certain restaurants in Feinstein’s own San Francisco specializing in that very thing.)

Why would you give additional specific information allowing the remaining Terrorist A-holes to cross reference and pinpoint those involved?

I believe this fight started with Benghazi. It continued with the summary ‘execution’ of the Afghanistan Chief of Station’s career by officially outing his name.

And, the apparent conflict is being taken to a brand new level with the release of this report.

Is the CIA not being cooperative enough with the Socialists in our Government?

Might they have issues with how they are being tossed under the bus by an Administration that practises Drone Diplomacy?  Our deteriorating relationship with Israel?  Allowing North Korea and Iran to acquire Nuclear Weapons and the means to ‘deliver’ them?  Our inability to keep secrets?  Our ceding the Middle East to the Terrorists after shedding American Blood to keep it out of their hands?

Are our covert Agencies not being quiet enough when it comes to the murder of our Diplomat and security personnel in Benghazi?  Could it be they are not on board with the Administration, and the rest of the Leftists, who didn’t want to appear ‘aggressive’ to the rest of the world by providing adequate security?

Is this just another attempt to paint Bush as a Domestic Terrorist since we are ‘all citizens of the world’ according to our own home-grown Socialists?

I believe it’s all the above.

Feinstein thinks, because of her retirement, she is now beyond the reach of the American people, and this is a flying f-you to the very agency and agencies she over saw.  The very same Agencies whose techniques she previously, and repeatedly, approved of.

The Covert folks do not seem interested in being quiet about how this Administration is conducting itself. They are not interested in being hung out to die… so to speak.

They do not seem interested in continuing to do what they must while being used as political pawns in a game that is decidedly anti-capitalist.

There a was a time that many of us could fool ourselves into thinking that those who professed to be Socialists were doing so in order simply to get elected.

Now many of us, and I must conclude those in the intelligence services as well, are finding out those they thought to be donning a cloak of Progressive Populism are in fact… serious.  And the very folks that put their lives on the line for the rest of us everyday are suffering in the worst ways because of it.  Add to this that many of those we thought were Constitutional Loyalists are nothing of the sort.

We are watching the Republic crumble, and lives are being lost as a result.

Are we witnessing an awakening by those that keep the secrets?

Possibly… but I’m wrong more often than I’m right.

However, there is no doubt that a dark war has started in D.C.

Bits of it are finding sunlight.

It seems the Left wants it that way.  What do they stand to gain?

Is it an attempt at a purge?

Are the Progressives trying to consolidate power as they have been trying to do in the Military?


The CIA Lies!

Just as it was created to do.

From the level of Torture and Interrogation applied to Terrorist A-Holes to Stupid Internet Video’s being the catalyst resulting in the Murder of our Diplomats and Security Personnel.

This HUGE STORY, brought to us by one must assume Captain Obvious, replaces what anyone with a rational mind capable of setting priorities and recognizing the severity of danger to themselves and the Republic…

IS A MUCH BIGGER STORY THE AMERICAN PEOPLE MUST BE AWARE OF…

Your Elected Representatives Lie and continue to Lie to You in order to Force You into Schemes which work against Your Personal Freedom and Liberty upon which this country was Founded.

It is EXACTLY the above LYING ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES WHO THINK YOU ARE STUPID that are in charge of keeping the LYING CIA in LINE.

Who watches the watchers?

WE DO YOU FOOLS!

WE DO!

May be Gruber is right… and we are indeed Stupid… and must be treated as Sheep.

(I mean ‘Fools’ in the nicest way possible. Probably doesn’t apply to you… probably.)


Fox News Gruber’s Viewers

In what can only be called the dumbest move yet, Fox News dumps the Gruber hearings on the Opacity and Outright Lying employed to Force Obama Care upon the American People by those they elected…

For Diane Feinstein’s “The CIA Sucks Report”.

We get it Diane. Nothing new here for Us or the Terrorist A-holes who seek to Convert, Oppress and Kill all those who stand in their way.

My question is why did Fox do this, and why is the person in charge of this decision still employed 10 minutes after making the decision?

Fools.


Spydenfreude

Riddle me this…

You lived in a world were Privacy was Paramount but it was interrupted by a loud hacking from inside your mind. Outrage ensued falling on deaf ears.

Who are you?

The American People?

Ha! No…

Did you guess the Democrat led Senate Intelligence Committee? Well you’d be right! Well done.

For those of you who guessed the American People you’re only half right as apparently we should not be outraged but instead consoled that the Intelligence Service we pay for spends the majority of its time searching our computers and passing around naked pictures, and texts, they find there.  (I wonder if the applications they use to determine the age of those subjects, like our sons and daughters who are doing dumb things, is good enough to make sure the wholesome folks at the NSA and CIA are not breaking even MORE laws. Just sayin’.)

Anyway, it looks like the impenetrable computer systems maintained by the Senate were accessed by the CIA.  For those of you that follow the news like I do I realize the Feinstein crew was up to their old tricks and ‘stole’ certain CIA memos which they were expressly forbidden to even copy.  But how do you threaten to leak damaging information and extort your ‘friends and colleagues’ without stealing it first?  Even so…

I must admit I’m enjoying some satisfaction knowing that those who have professed to think ‘it’s just fine’ that the Government is spying on its own citizens, cough…Feinstein…cough, are now experiencing exactly the treatment they viewed themselves above.

This story has seen very little coverage and I think I know why.  The story would be a short explanation followed by a single yelled exclamation of “How Does It Feel?!”.

In all honesty this should be a terrifying story, and it might be if we have not all been out here in regular working man territory trying to digest the fact we have absolutely no privacy left, and no protection from our own government, for the last two years.  I believe if this story about the CIA spying on the Senate Intelligence Committee were a stand alone event all eyes, and outrage, would be focused upon it.

This brings up an interesting phenomena.  Some years ago I assisted, in small ways, a professor friend with a paper on Mortality Salience.  Mortality Salience is how humans react to provided evidence that certain behaviors or actions either are or will be harmful to their life expectancy.  Part of what my friend was working on is the interesting reaction humans have when the information becomes so overwhelming in terms of either too many of their actions being life threatening, or a single action which is painted as immediately threaten in every way. The individual’s reaction is to tune out the warnings.  They simply become numb to the desired level of alarm those issuing the warnings are attempting to facilitate.

To make a long story longer, I think this is why nobody seems to care about our FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE SERVICE SPYING ON OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS…

AND… THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES DEFENDING THE ACTION.

What’s yet another ground shaking, unbelievable, constitution destroying event when we have been inundated with them for the last 5-years?

We have become numb to the fear and alarm which should rationally be present.

We are now Deer in Headlights.

So, smokem’ if you gotem’.  Eat more Bacon and Stop Wearing your Seatbelt… What the Hell?


Harry Reid’s Mushroom Cloud

This morning Senate Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) changed the rules of the Senate to allow for Mob Rule.  A simple Majority of Senators can now approve a Presidential Nominee for positions such as Judges.  While any nominee is now subject to simple majority vote for approval I’m going to stick with Judges… because that’s what really matters here.

I have tapped out my belief that the Progressive Liberal Socialists behind Obama Care will do anything… anything… anything to make sure this steaming pile of Elitist Social Engineering remains law.  Well, this is one of those “anything’s”.

There is a palpable sense of urgency emanating from the Democrats in Washington.

The Leftists are realizing that this whole destroy the insurance companies and force socialized medicine on the “stupid folks” thing just isn’t working out.  But they have waited too long and come to far to let it slip through their little commie fingers.

I posted a note some time back called the Benevolent Arsonist in which I proposed that Chief Justice John Roberts knew exactly what he was doing when he emasculated the Commerce Clause argument as applied to Obama Care (and pretty much anything else in the future) and instead forced it to be defined as a Tax.

Why is this important now?

It’s important because we are about to see Millions, possibly Hundreds of Millions of Americans forced to pay The Obama Care Penalty Tax because they have not enrolled in the brilliant Socialized Medicine Scheme thrust upon them.  They are going to be penalized for Not buying Something!  And once that happens… it constitutes “Harm”.  And once you’re “Harmed”… you can Sue, but not until then.

The Liberal Left Democrats in this country know full well the lawsuits are coming.  Harm is just over the Horizon.  In fact, it dawns in six weeks.

This is why those Big Unions, and Corporations, with armies of lawyers and the money to use them, all got waivers…  The Left hopes to slow down those who can make things happen Fast.  (Well, Big Labor is a different story… but let’s stay on topic.)

And because Small Businesses have neither money nor lawyers on staff they are left out to dry… just like the rest of the stupid Individuals who don’t know what’s good for us.

The Nuclear Option has been on the drawing boards behind those closed Red doors for some time.  And faced with a rapidly disintegrating Dream…

The Obama Administration and the Elitists who support Obama Care just need more time.

They need more time to create Government Addicts.  Just like the local Heroin Dealer… they are willing to give it to you right up until you Have to Have IT.  All these European Socialists who occupy the political offices of the United States want is enough time for there to be no way back to the way it was.  And while they don’t need to stack the courts forever, they absolutely need their people in place really friggin’ quick to fend off any legitimate lawsuits demonstrating the direct Harm being caused by this Soviet Style, Mean-Spirited and Overtly Oppressive Health Care legislation.

So the Nuclear Option was employed this morning because President Obama, Harry Reid and the rest of their Ilk see the writing on the wall.

This thing sucks.  You know it, I know it and even those blind Kool-Aid drinkers singing Obama songs before passing out at his campaign speeches now know it.  If they don’t, they’re starting to figure it out.  (The jury is still out in regard to what those people can actually figure out, but we’ll see as the weeks pass.)

Obama needs his Judges in Place.

Obama needs to be able to “expand”, in other words Stack, the courts in his favor.

Obama’s Legacy as the Man who Remade America into a Social Democracy depends on it.

And you fools are not playing along.

So they have no choice but to start pulling out the “anything’s”.


Spying on Other Countries!

This cannot stand!

We must be outraged!

At least according to Diane Feinstein.

“With respect to NSA collection of intelligence on leaders of U.S. allies — including France, Spain, Mexico and Germany – let me state unequivocally: I am totally opposed.” -Sen. Diane Feinstein D-CA

In regard to the NSA’s Domestic Spying program affecting 330,000,000 Americans the Senator is silent.  Well actually not silent so much as a proponent.

So one must discern in her mind it is out of bounds to collect intelligence from Socialists around the Globe as well as on our borders, but clearly acceptable for the U.S. Government to do so from million’s of innocent Americans.

I wonder what label she would give her preferred flavor of governing theory?

I’ve long held that these people will tell you what they think if you’re willing to listen.

France… OFF LIMITS!

You… Fair Game.


On the High Heels of Diane Feinstein…

attempting to seize the authority to decide who is, and who is not, a journalist, comes this story;

China decides online criticism is “illegal”.

Could it be that Anita Dunn’s Admiration for Mao is shared by a certain Senator from California?

Why would the Senate want to “define” who is, and who is not a Journalist if they liked everything being said about them?  And, once defined, who is going to be in charge of enforcing said definition?  What will that enforcement look like?  What Constitutional foundation is such a measure justified with?  Why should this be tolerated by the American people?  Where is the “First Amendment Crowd” when it’s “their” guys, or gals, doing this type of thing?

Could it be that our Elected Representatives are having an increasingly difficult time shielding themselves from the “push back” from their constituencies?  Might it be that they receive opinions from all over the United States regarding their performance that is most irritating?  (This is a new refrain coming from many politicians over the last couple election cycles… but I would remind those who receive the worst of it, if you don’t like my opinion then stop trying to make everything a Federal Issue.)

In the end,

This is what one might call a distinction without a difference.
