Even 4-year-olds Realize Something Must be Done

(While We Never Recommend such Direct Action… the desperation displayed by this young person that Something Must be Done certainly illustrates the depth of concern being experienced by all of us.)

The Secret Service scrambled this afternoon at an unidentified 4-year-old managed to climb under a White House fence.

“4 year old child climbed under temporary bike rack along PA Ave. Child was fine and was safely reunited with parents,” Secret Service spokesman Brian Leary told the White House pool reporter.

An earlier pool report detailed the scramble:

“Pool loaded the vans at 12:38 pm and motorcade is rolling at 12:51 pm to an undisclosed location.

“As the pool was initially gathering at the north doors of the Palm Room, security agents suddenly rushed to the north lawn with their weapons drawn and pool was told to get back inside. It turned out to be a non-incident, in which an individual jumped over the small bike fence outside the White House gate. After a few moments, pool was able to gather again. Your pooler has reached out to Secret Service for more details.”

Then came the update: “Update on brief security scramble at the White House prior to departure: It was just a child.”

 

(Update:  We erroneously believed the child was upset about how the Country was being run.  However, It has been learned that the parents recently subscribed to cable TV and have been watching old Television Shows with the Child.  According to the Parents the Child simply wanted JJ, Lurch and State Department Spokesperson Chrissy Snow’s Autographs.  We apologize for the error.)


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.


What do Benghazi and Newtown have in common?

Both have taxpayer-funded Liberal officials trying to suppress the “Why” it happened.

It is a fact that the State Department is not interested in discussing the “Why” behind Benghazi.  Hilary Clinton said as much and John Kerry has reiterated her sentiments.  Witnesses have been hidden from the press, and Administration officials have derided the press for even asking.  The position, as stated by Hilary Clinton, is… “WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?”  Yes… what does it matter if we have adopted a stance which leaves our Diplomatic personnel hanging out to dry?

But the efforts to suppress the “Why” behind the Newtown shooting has not received much coverage.  According to the Washington Post, a bill being quietly pushed through the Connecticut Legislature would allow the victims to decide what information would be made public regarding the event.  While this is being couched under the auspices of “Victims Rights”, and the public is being told it is primarily concerning the crime scene photo’s… it would include all aspects of the case.  In other words, it would include any notes, ledgers, e-mail, websites, etc.  It would basically prevent anyone from finding the “Why” an arguably disturbed but not unintelligent individual would plan, equip and execute such a horrible crime.

Allow me to be clear.  I am not waiting with bated breath to see the crime scene photo’s from Newtown any more than I care to see the crime scene photo’s from Benghazi.

However, I do want to see the correspondence surrounding both events.  I do want to see what websites and media young Lanza consumed regularly.  I do want to understand who thought it would be a brilliant idea to dig up a stupid video to blame the Benghazi assassination on.  I do want to see the scribbling’s of a young man who was seeking… something.  I do want to hear from the other survivors of the “spontaneous” consulate attack.

There is truth to be found in both cases… and in both cases there are Liberals attempting to shield it from the light of day.

These types of things make me wonder… “Why”.


Why is Kerry scheduled to “address the public” and not Holder?

(Update:  It appears someone in authority has changed their mind in regard to Kerry’s pre-emptive address.  Good.)

I have to throw this out prior to the much-anticipated public service announcement from SECRETARY OF STATE John Kerry.

Why is he speaking anything about the Boston Marathon Bombing instead of ATTORNEY GENERAL Eric Holder?

Unless he is going to offer up International ties to this act of Terrorism… then he should be silent and allow the FBI along with the Attorney General to do the speaking.

As far as I’m concerned, this is yet another attempt to blur the public’s understanding of jurisdiction and how our system is designed to work.

It should be noted, I will welcome having to amend my remarks should Secretary Kerry provide ties to international terrorism. While I think this could certainly be a possibility, until we are sure… Kerry needs to avoid the podium.

Speaking of which, where is our man Napolitano? I’ve heard only 30 seconds from DHS. If there is an international tie shouldn’t they be on deck to slobber on a microphone? And, when they’re finished… send in Lurch?

Let’s watch… shall we?
