On Being 13-year old Boys….

I typically don’t care about personal petty fights between semi-celebrities, but this one serves a purpose.

Glenn Beck and Milo Yiannopoulis are having a tiff.

Who?!

Right.

No worries… if you care enough you can look it up, or click on the link above.  But the names and personalities don’t matter all that much for what I’m about to offer.

Allow me to sum this up quickly:  Beck called Milo a “hurt 13-year old Boy”, and he may be right.  Milo called Beck a ‘Pontificating, Self Absorbed, Unaware Leftist attempting to elevate himself above others’ (my words as Milo uses a lot of them), and he may be right.  Bare in mind I like them both for different reasons.

What I’m interested in here is the ’13-year old boy’ comment.

Our politics and the approach to voters has been designed to appeal to 13-year old boys.

Some of us, for various reasons, were taught early on to craft messages that could be easily understood by 7th and no more than 8th grade educated individuals.  It has been the approach of mass media since mass media has been around.  And… it works.

The Left has mastered this.

I expect no one here will recall, but I have compared Lenin to reading the diary of a petulant 12-year old.  Agree or disagree, I’ve read lots, and lots, and lots, of him and that’s my take.

If you have read Alinsky… you will get the same feel.  From dedicating his most famous work to Lucifer… for the shock value (as he was making money at the time training Catholic Priests how to ‘Community Organize’ on the South Side of Chicago), to explaining the benefits of staging “Fart protests”.  (I kid you not.  Fart-ins.  But I will not do the work for you.  Makeaneffort.)

Even Abby Hoffman was clear in his communication to young Leftists that no one over 30 can be trusted.

The Socialists in this country have been treating their followers as 13-year old boys, well basically, forever.

It has given them full control over the United States.

So, in many ways, Beck is right about Milo.  (If you don’t follow Milo you are not paying attention.  Some of you know I have a list of people to pay attention to.  Add Milo to that list.  I’m not saying you should like the way he presents his opinions… but that’s the point here.)

Milo has taken, as I believe the entire Trump Campaign has taken, a page out of the Leftist playbook and is hammering them with it.  They are treating the voters like they are 13-year old boys.

And… it is working.

You might be saying to yourself; “I Don’t want to be treated like a 13-year old boy!”

Me neither.  I consider myself closer to 11-years old in most ways.

But let me state this one more time…

IT’S WORKING!

I have to confess I have moved away from the Breitbart website as it has become the Everything Trump is Awesome site.  And I know, from his own words, that Andrew did not favor Trump.  But I think the tactic of using the Left’s Demeaning and Elitist Approach to Everything against them fits comfortably within a strategy Andrew would embrace.  In other words, I think Breitbart would be okay with what his heirs are doing as it relates to fighting an entrenched Socialist Establishment on both sides of the aisle.

Think about this for a moment, we see the media in this country claim the aura of superiority over you, the unwashed masses, by simply not acting like 13-year old boys.  I’m not implying they are smarter or better educated, I’m simply saying their positions of authority are based entirely upon talking down to you. The Press behave just like a 13-year old boy would… they act ‘older, wiser and more experienced’ when in fact they’re not.  They are that 13-year old boy that lies about having had sex and then goes on to instruct everyone else on how’s it’s done.

This is also true for the Elitist A-holes like our Progressive Political class.  It keeps them in charge.  They act as though they have the answers… but they have failed to solve a single problem… ever.  Not one.  Not Poverty, Not Equality, Not any single problem they have defined as needed fixing have they solved and they’ve been in control for almost 110-years.

But here’s what they know…

You don’t need to fix anything, you just need to act like you have the answers.  You need to act like you care.  The 13-year old’s will believe you.

They are taught this.

I know this to be true.  I have taught it.

Why?

Because… it works.

So if you’re going to allow them to get away with it then why shouldn’t we embrace these tactics when so much is at stake.

And that is the question, isn’t it?

Do you think there is any hope left of returning The United States of America to the brilliance it once held as the Greatest Experiment in Self-Government the World has ever known?

Or, have you given up?

For the record, I am an Ideological purist.  I’m not going to go into Trump or anything else beyond that in this post as there are over 1300 bits right here on this site which you look at on your own if you care.  The reason I’m stating it outright is I share many Libertarian traits with Beck… and Milo…  So, while Milo is acting a child, Beck is indeed a pontificating A-hole.

In the end, nothing can be worse than electing an Effectual Socialist (Hillary) to control over 1/3 of our government.  (Someone want to fight with me about ‘over’ the 1/3?  It’s not a mistake I tapped it out that way intentionally.)

Whether we like it or not, we are a Nation of 13-year old boys.  (Even the Girls.)

It’s right here in front of us;  the poor excuses passing for logic, the feelings over solutions, intent instead of outcome, the importance of looking cool and caring at the cost of genuinely helping, the demand of an allowance from your parents, the obsession with undefinable platitudes like Fairness and Love, the overwhelming drive to offend but never to be offended, the attempt to elevate ourselves above others by appearing smart when we are not and, of course, the potty jokes.  The fact we accept all, let alone any, of this illustrates what we face.

In the end, these two semi-celebrities are right about each other.  One is clinging to the approach of educating the public and bringing them to an elevated understanding of the world.  The other has that higher level of understanding, but is attempting to appeal to a constituency who has been fully indoctrinated by Leftists… not to be educated thinking humans… but to nurture their low self-esteem, to covet their victim-hood and… to respond favorably to potty jokes.

These two are on the same side in the end… and they should refocus their energy on the real enemy which is Socialism.

Leaving no insult un-turned is a Classic Leftist tactic.

It’s the Trump Campaign… and it’s working.

We just need to make sure we continue to use it on the right folks.

 

Melania 2016!


“I Don’t Think Targeting is Wrong”

Acting IRS Commissioner Mr. Stephen Miller (Could actually be Eugene Levy,  Geoffrey Rush or their offspring, I’m awaiting verification on this.) , during this mornings hearing regarding the IRS targeting Conservative Groups stated unequivocally that he did not believe targeting was wrong.
Much is being made that this man was a Bush appointee.
Folks… this man is exhibiting the Cultural Mindset which resides within the Government as we know it. It doesn’t matter who appointed him. I don’t care if George Washington himself personally indorsed Mr. Miller. He is an example, just an example, of what is wrong with the IRS.  I’ll leave alone the fact the George Bush, pick one, was not a rock ribbed Constitutional Conservative.
Bear in mind, Mr. Miller is just one of the players in this scandal and he wasn’t in charge during the peak of these targeted investigations of groups based on politics as determined by those in the IRS.
There are many more people involved here. Many, many more.

It is also amazing, and worth paying attention to, how much the IRS and apparently this White House depends on the news media for being alerted to issues which they are a part of. Frankly, it should cause every American to shake their head and wonder if anyone works in Washington D.C., and if so do any of them possess cell phones. The lack of communication and reliance on outside third parties to inform them what is happening within their own departments is astounding.

Please… please pay attention to this. This is Bloated, Over-reaching, Unaccountable and Oppressive Bureaucracy on display.

This attitude permeates all agencies within our Government.

This is not just about the IRS.


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.


Must We be Skeptical of Everything?!

…Asks the Media.

-Yes. That is your Job.

But that would take forever! We would have to devote people to do nothing else! We can’t possibly check out every story and bit of news for its validity!

-It is your Job.

But some things we just know to be true… why should we waste our time and resources on verifying stories that we simply know to be accurate? That would be stupid!

-It is your Job.

If we took the time to do what you’re saying we are supposedly supposed to do we would never have a story out in a timely fashion… it would just take too long.

-It is your Job.

What’s the harm in running a story that makes you feel good, or not running one that doesn’t?

-If it’s not true, then it is a lie.  Not running it is the same.  Regardless of how it might make us feel.  Truth… It is your Job.

You just need to trust us to know what’s fit for your consumption. We are Professionals.

-Are you?

YES! WE ARE! HOW DARE YOU SUGGEST WE’RE NOT!

-I’m suggesting exactly that.  Are you doing your Job?

SCREW YOU! WE’RE NOT CHANGING, WE ARE DOING GREAT… YOUR THE ONE WITH A PROBLEM!

-What Problem is that?

YOU EXPECT US TO… TO… TO… YOU’RE A RACIST! OR, YOU MUST BE SOME KIND OF RIGHT WING NUT-JOB! PROBABLY HOMOPHOBIC!

-Hmm… I don’t think so. But if you think so you could research it and provide some credible proof. It is your Job.

YOU’RE A TERRORIST!

-Is this your Job?
