John, are you not Paying Attention!?

Today John Podesta stated ‘Joe Biden… needs to make up his mind whether he’s going to run (For President) or not.

Hey John, Joe Biden Does Not Want To Run For President.

What Biden wants is a pay off.
He wants promises for his family and himself.
He wants Hillary to, in essence, pay for his endorsement.

This has been clear from the beginning.

You might as well get with the program.

I know your statement today, John, was to send the message that Old Joe ‘can expect no graft here’… but Hillary is in deep.  And you ALL know it.
Short of pulling her out of the race due to some supposed illness, or more realistically a social illness turned grave possessed by her husband, you’re running out of options.

Even Clinton Crony Lanny Davis knows Biden is a buffoon…

So just cut the guy a check, or better yet promise Hunter a place in a Hillary Administration. Whatever.

But you better do it soon.

Until you do he will continue being Side-Show Joe entertaining the passengers while Hillary sinks.


Feeling Comfortable

Or,

Speaking Freely…

Or,

When Socialists get together behind Closed Doors…

Let’s get something Clear.  The Statements made by Jonathan Gruber, a Primary Architect of Obama Care and a M.I.T. Professor, were far from Stupid.

And that is the point.

Gruber’s comments were not Stupid… they were Honest.

While it’s not news to me, it might be to you…

Socialists and their Ilk see you as Stupid.

You are to be fooled, lied to and manipulated.  The only thing Socialists believe you can be counted on to do is the Wrong Thing.

Gruber, et al*, know what’s right for you… always… in every situation.  Just ask them.  (You’ll have to pretend to be one of them and do it where they think they’re safe.) They’ll tell you.

What’s an important lesson to take away from Gruber’s comments, regarding your Stupidity, is the Leftist media circling the wagons to reposition his speaking as “Stupid”.  But listen carefully… no one on the Left is saying his comments are Not True.  What is being said is it was “Stupid” for him to say them.  And what they mean is it was ‘Stupid’ for him to SAY THEM OUT LOUD WHERE YOU CAN HEAR THEM.

The Democrats are angry because you heard one of their own speak freely.

You heard a Highly Regarded Progressive Liberal being Honest about how they ALL feel about You.

Nothing is surprising by these comments.

Many of us have personally heard such statements throughout our lives.  But the Democrats, and some Republicans, have been very careful not to say such things where they can be heard by those they speak of.  Kind of like spelling out words in front of your Children…

Personally I like having Socialists be honest and open.  Just like I prefer my Racists to be honest and open.

They are Poisonous, Ugly and deeply Evil people.  And I want to know exactly who they are.

So now you know about Obama Care and how it has been based on Lies throughout it’s being Forced upon the American People.

But it’s not just about Obama Care.

It’s about how Socialists see the World… and most importantly, You.

When you subscribe to the idea that the ‘Ends justify the Means’ as Socialists do… lying to the ‘unwashed masses’, the ‘idiots’, the ‘little people’,  is just part of the Job.

They are even beginning to look for moral relativity by saying “Everybody does it.”

But hearing it for yourself… puts some things into context, like an Elected Representative publically stating “You have to pass the Law to Find Out What’s in It” as Nancy Pelosi condescendingly did.  She knew what was in it, she knew it was the Crown Jewel of the Socialists Transformation of the United States… it’s just You are too stupid to understand it.  And, on the outside chance you did understand it, you wouldn’t like it.  So Stop asking Questions, Shut Up and Pass It!

Well, they might ‘all lie’… but that doesn’t mean We should tolerate it.  Ever.  From any of them… ‘our side’ or not.

This goes especially for you ‘Liberals’ out there.  Don’t think for one moment that associating yourself with Democrats get’s you a pass…  it’s a Fatal Conceit.

They think you’re Stupid too.

Only worse…  they think you’re Useful.

This is a Huge IRS story from Breitbart!

Some of you will dismiss this as ‘politics as usual’…
But it is ‘politics as usual’ we would never see if it were not for the internet.
We are in very New, very Interesting times.

Eric Holders Office Calls Darrell Issa’s office by Mistake…
And asked them to receive leaked documents, then Spin them in a favorable light for Democrats.
One Painful Problem.
Darrell Issa is a Republican in Charge of Investigating and Oversight.
In this Case the IRS Targeting Political Enemies.

I predict Mainstream Media will give this little if any attention because it’s ‘Their Guys’ doing it.  Could you imagine what the response would be if the Bush, or any supposedly non-Leftist, Administration did such a thing?  I can.

This is Big.

Big, Big, Big…

And it’s Al Gore’s fault for inventing this greatest miracle since the Guttenberg Press.

Let there be light!


Machiavelli

Politicians love to hate him.

We should hate that they love him.

It’s fascinating how Machiavelli has earned an evil reputation from those who employ his tactics most often.  The people who fling his name as an epithet then go on to preach “pragmatic” solutions to our problems…

Machiavelli was indeed a preacher of ruthless pragmatism.  But, only under certain circumstances.

For many of us our exposure to Machiavelli is limited to The Prince.  Often the instructors who assigned this brilliant gem did not understand it, or if they did they chose not to present their students with the piece in context.  The Prince was an application for employment.  Nothing more.  Niccolo had bills to pay, just like we do.  He needed work and at the time the only need for a political advisor was by a monarch (Lorenzo de’ Medici).  So he wrote “the rules” on how to be a prince hoping to get a paying gig.

His “solutions” to princely problems were simple for the most part.  Kill anyone who has claim to the throne along with their family… (lest you be killed.)  Tell your subjects whatever they want to hear then do what you need, or want, to do to manage your kingdom… (lest you be killed.)  Isolate and blame an external enemy, real or imagined, for any and all problems within the kingdom… (lest you be killed.)  Make compacts and or create ties with the powerful and wealthy kingdoms that could pose a threat to yours… (lest you be killed.)  There’s more… but I think you get it.

Considering this was the only type of working government in existence at the time, and one could assume a Prince valued his life, then these rules make sense when spelled out, right?

Aside from monarchy in principle and design, where is the evil?  We’re told it lies in the idea that “the ends (not being killed) justifies the means.”  I might agree… if a prince could just quietly slip away without fear that these rules would be applied upon him from another prince.  But at the time that was not an option.

That was then, this is now.

Fast forward…  Look around you and see all of the examples of these rules being used when there is no threat of death, only the loss of power.

The people we should fear most call this “Just Politics”.

The Statists champion free speech only so long as it’s speech they agree with.  Political administrations promise to “investigate and bring to justice” those who create the housing depressions, kill diplomats and sell guns to drug cartels, when it was they who did it and continue to do things similar.  The “occupy protesters” who preach love and tolerance yet grab, push, shout down and spit on those who disagree with them.  You see it in every politician who champions individual freedom yet insists you are too stupid to make decisions for yourself and must be led, or “nudged” to the “right” answers.  It’s every leader who creates diversions, changes the meaning of words and combines multiple issues in order to leave you, the public, confused and uninformed.

These are the tactics of Princes in waiting.  The only problem is our current leaders have nothing to lose but power over you.  Nobody is waiting in the wings to wipe them and their family out of existence.  This fact makes their behavior… well… Sinister.

Our politicians are fully aware such behavior buys them time until you lose interest.  Once you lose interest you forget.  When you forget, you vote for them again, and they keep their power…

Fortunately, today’s politics is not about life and death.  Unfortunately, today’s politics is about getting and keeping one’s power over others.  It’s about amassing huge amounts of wealth based on using government force to benefit your friends and punish your enemies.  (The U.S.Costitution, if followed and enforced, was designed to protect us from this.)  Based on his writings in Discourses on Livy, Niccolo believed that a republic was the preferred structure for government.  Although he doubted it could ever be sustained.

I think he may be right.
