From the “Who needs Enemies when you have Friends like these?” file…

File Photo – John Boehner, Former Republican Speaker of the House

Here’s a little quote from John Boehner, Former Republican Speaker of the House, associated with an article where he states the Republicans will Never repeal Obamacare.

“What’s making everything even worse today is because we have so much news, people get to choose where they get their news,” Boehner said. “It used to be we had three big TV networks, five big newspapers, and five big radio stations and whatever they said was the news. Everybody else followed what they do.” – John Boehner 072517

There you have it, Idiots. You’re all too stupid to know what’s real and what isn’t and the ‘just recently former Republican Speaker of the House’ is lamenting your access to unfiltered “news”.  You, your opinions, your radio hosts and your little dog too, are all dummies.  You want to know what an Elitist A-hole is?  Well, they drink scotch all day, look like George Hamilton on a bender and sound like the above quote spoken in a slow perpetual slur.

If you need a reminder…

The Enemy is Within.

Trumps first War will be fought inside his own party.


It’s Fine to Spy on the Little People…

… just not the People in Power.

The Politicians are ANGRY!

How DARE the NSA Spy on THEM!

But… wait… what?

Are You Little People confused?

Of course you are… or at least, you should be.

Your confusion stems from our wandering so very far away from our Founders intent.

The reason for this confusion is we were founded in such a way where the Individual is always supreme over the Government.  And the Government is not only LIMITED in it’s power, it’s powers are intentionally Separated.  Limit and Conflict were BUILT INTO THE SYSTEM to PROTECT THE INDIVIDUAL.  It’s quite simple really.

Which brings us to the fact that The Newly Found Political Fury over Sweeping Mass Collection of data by Law Enforcement and Intelligence Agencies should be directed at the Intrusion upon, and Violation of, Individual Rights of ALL Citizens… Not Politicians specifically.

Frankly, I have less of an issue with Politicians spying on each other than I do Force (Government) spying on the Citizenry.

Let me make this as Clear as possible…

The U.S. Government can and should be Spying on other Countries.  It’s their Job.

Other Countries will be attempting to Spy on us, the U.S.  – It’s not a matter of being ‘OK’ with it, it’s their job… as it is ours to deny them that ability.

What is Not ‘OK’?

The U.S. Government Spying on Individual Citizens without a specifically crafted warrant to do so.  (The only argument worth having here; “Are Politicians considered Individual Citizens?”  It could also be useful to remind the NSA that their Love interests also fit into the ‘Citizen’ category… and some of the things they are doing is considered stalking at a minimum.)

Of course they are…

But the current framing of the ‘Offended’ is that they are ‘special’.  And while I might agree that they are special, I would offer that they are most often the kind of special that requires a helmet when walking outside.

In the end, the reason you should be more concerned about the U.S. Government Spying on you and not China, Korea, Israel or Google, is because none of the latter have yet found a way to show up at your door and throw you in jail.  (Although Google is probably working on it.)

The Politicians should be reminded of their place in society… which was always intended to be servants to those who are not in power.

This will be interesting to watch as most genuine Conservatives do not like being Spied upon, and most Democrats have spent huge amounts of time and money convincing their Useful Voters that they too believe in a Right to Privacy.

Can anyone spell Dissonance?

 

 


Gruber Government

From the anals of Washington Elitist Government comes the latest in ‘How to get things done when the American Public is just too Stupid to understand‘.

This is why Cynicism is the Only, Constant and Always method to view those we elect… especially those we vote for.

Republican Leftist Paul Ryan has joined Democrat Leftist Progressive Nancy Pelosi in the Jonathan Gruber School of Governing with his latest demand that you will only be allowed to see what’s in the Obamatrade Act after your representatives Pass it.

I don’t believe you need to be reminded what a debacle Obamacare is… and getting worse. So I won’t.

Now we’re told that we are again too stupid to be allowed to see what’s in a sweeping, certainly not limited to what we would think is “trade”, Trade Act before we are all subject to it.

From what small snippets have been leaked, and adding together soundbites from the three people who have at least gone down to the Capital Dungeon to ‘read’ it, there is enough for everyone to hate. The Washington Elites would tell you “That’s how the sausage is made, and it represents a ‘Good Compromise‘.” I would offer it is also how fecal matter is made and represents the very same… just like Obamacare.

So we are told by a supposed “Conservative” that we must pass it to see what’s in it.

Clearly the Democrats who oppose it are not interested in ‘passing it to see what’s in it’… primarily because they are not at all sure they will hold the Presidency in the next term, and are not interested in the profound power which will be moved from the Legislative Branch to the Executive Branch.

And the few “Constitutional Originalists” we have left in the Conservative Movement (read ‘non-leftist’) who are still acting that way, oppose it because it will amount to several anti-capitalist results.

First, there can be little doubt that our allies in Europe have prolonged the Doom of Greece, and the Drowning of the EU, in the hopes that something in the deal Bails out their Socialist Union Scheme which many of us said would fail. We knew this back in the Nineties because people and nations lie… and always will… nothing is new under the sun. (Note: Jeb Bush is meeting with European leaders who are looking for reassurance should he become president that he would not interfere with this new, expected to be shoved down the throats of the American People, EU Bail Out/Trade Act.)

We must begin asking ourselves why American Tax Dollars should continue to go to bailing out Failed Socialist Schemes and the long-dead Socialist ideology those schemes are built upon. Reinforcing Oppression, Death and Destruction should not be a committment made by The United States of America. The Western Socialist Democracies need to be allowed Fail on their own so they will modify their behavior. They have survived at the teat of American Free-Market Capitalism (in what feeble form it exists) for well over 100-years. The time is Now to Stop Enabling Elitist Control and Class Stasis of Fascist/Socialist A-Holes.  But it starts at home…

Second, there is little doubt that this ‘Trade’ bill will magically include Immigration Powers not before held by the Executive Branch. Just as the Commerce Clause has over time been perverted to mean just about anything, and everything, depending on what some person in power wanted it to mean…
Now it will be ‘Trade’. We have mechanisms in place to deal with immigration, but the survival of the Leftist Socialist-Fascist movement in this country depends on new government dependants. Whether these dependants are from other countries, or home-grown, doesn’t matter to the Socialists. As long as they get to vote… and vote for their redistributed ‘paycheck’, Liberalism survives.

Third, this Act will certainly create the very same type of Socialist Symbiosis represented by the European Union and carry with it the very same ‘certain to fail’ model. Just like Obamacare destroying the finest Medical system on the planet, why do we do this to ourselves? The answer is simple. The Socialists believe that it’s not the failure of their ideas. Rather, it’s that their ideas have never been allowed to catch up to the wild success of Self Determination and Free-Market Capitalism (in what feeble form it exists). They continue to fully subscribe to centralized control while anointing themselves Philosopher Kings. It truly is a Fatal Conceit.

Sure… if you’re Leftist Progressive you might think this is super cool. But once you think past the Trees and see the Forest (Something most Liberals are intentionally never taught to do) you clearly see that these powers are assigned to the Executive Branch, not just Liberal leftist Socialist progressives when they hold the Executive Branch.  Thus the push back from the Leftists… and frankly, a main reason the Leftist Light Republicans support it.

The United States is now run by those who seek to protect Government from us, not protect us from Government.

Are we going to allow Jonathan Gruber to be correct when he says “The American People are too Stupid to know what’s going on.”?

We proved him right not long ago with Obamacare…

So…

Probably.


Twisted by Knaves to Make a Trap for Fools…

Force is a terrible idea…

…Unless it’s my idea.

And so goes what passes for debate built on principles of sand.

There is a trick played on us.  It’s a simple trick, a trick for the Simple that is.  And the fact we fall for it is more an indictment of ourselves than those Knaves who play it.

The Trick is to foment a fight were there was none.

The Goal is get Us to concede something we don’t realize we’re arguing about…

It works like this;

If you believe that Force is a wonderful thing and People are too Stupid to know what’s best for themselves… then you also believe that Vaccinations must be compulsory.  In other words, Vaccines save lives and the Masses are too idiotic to choose to get them.  (Explaining the benefits of Vaccines is just not enough and besides it takes too long, and too much effort, to argue the benefits with a bunch of Morons.  You get it… because you’re Smart.  Having to compete in the arena of ideas is just prodding the Sheep into the right decision assuming they accidentally understand your brilliance.)

At the same time, when you know that your ideological opponents profess to believe that Force is a terrible idea and all things should be Voluntary, you create an argument over… say… said Vaccines.  (The topic is interchangeable.)

The Goal is to get your ideological enemy to agree that Force (The foundation of your Progressive ideology) is a Good idea.  Even if they qualify it with the caveat of “Only sometimes”, you have won the Greater Argument your opponent doesn’t even recognize he’s having.

All that remains is who gets to decide what cases qualify as ‘Sometimes’.  And, of course, The Real Power lies in being The Decider.

Once a Liberal has this Foolish Victory they quickly move on to Compulsory Health Care… Compulsory Diet Plans for Public Schools… Compulsory Education…  Compulsory EPA regulations… Compulsory Redistribution… Etc… Etc.  Demanding you go on the record as to exactly WHEN it’s OK to Force.

Now the conversation has moved away from Force as an idea and on to exactly What will be Forced.

From a Progressive point of view, its Brilliant.  It keeps your Ideological Enemies on the Perpetual Defensive and leaves them no option but to be the one’s to say “No”.  (Ever hear the phrase “The Party of ‘No’.?)

Supposed Conservatives fall into this Socialist Trap all the time.  And because they spend little time Thinking about what they think and Why, they deserve it.

The Socialists set their opposition up to get them to concede their principles shift with the wind making them worthless if not non-existent.

Liberal Progressives believe in Force.  They believe you’re Stupid.  They believe the only thing they can count on is given a decision to make you’ll make the wrong one.

That is the divide.

Force versus Freedom.

All arguments reduce to this.

Unfortunately, Conservatives seem content to have Lucy hold the football.

Another example is the “Gay Marriage” debate.

This ‘argument’ has both sides FIGHTING for Government approval.

Do you see the faulty premise here?

Why is the question not “What is Government doing being involved in one’s marriage in the first place?”

Why on Earth would any person, Gay, Straight or Slightly Bent, beg the approval of the Government as a validation of their ‘deeply personal’ marriage.

Why would the debate not center around all partnerships being contractual civil unions between two individuals and leave marriage to the Church of your choice?

Because…

It’s not about validating a union between two people.

It’s only about validating the Concept of Government Interference and Involvement.

It’s about Force…

Telling us who we can, or cannot, marry and charging us a fee for the privilege.

I always thought Charlie Brown should have run as hard as he could and Kicked Lucy in the Head instead.

Seems harsh, but it would be the last time she pulled the ball away.

Until that happens… Republicans have no ground to be surprised when they are accused of being a distinction without a difference in comparison to Democrats.

And that’s just how the Elitist Democrat Socialist Knaves want it.


When it’s not an Argument you want to have…

When you’re a Liberal and you clearly see the danger in defending Free Speech…

When a Socialist is placed in a position having to feign outrage over the motivations of terrorists when they kill those who have done nothing more than draw cartoons…

What do you do?

Liam Neeson Demonstrates:

Action Hero Liam Neeson on Paris Attack: US Gun Ownership ‘A [Bleeping] Disgrace’

When you’re Liberal Progressive who see’s the possibility of the narrative going the wrong way…

What do you do?

Washington Post Columnist Eugene Robinson Demonstrates:

Eugene Robinson:  France Attacks would be Deadlier in US Due to Guns

When you’re a Democratic Socialist and you recognize Control of Speech is one of the most powerful weapons you have when it comes to defending yourself from your population…

What do you do?

Paris Demonstrates how it has no word for Irony in French… or is it in ‘Marxist’?:

France ordered prosecutors around the country to crack down on hate speech, anti-Semitism and glorifying terrorism, announcing Wednesday that 54 people had been arrested for those offenses since terror attacks last week left 20 dead in Paris.

 

Leftists cannot allow the power to control speech to slip through their fingers after working so diligently to get the public to support it…

Genuinely Free Speech would be a defeat taking decades for Socialists to recover from.

 


Will Boehner Retaliate?

Now that John Boehner has narrowly kept his Speakership, will he and his minions retaliate against those who were representing the people of their districts and voted against him?

Because that’s what he would be doing…

He would be retaliating against Us.

If this happens, does he think We will suddenly fall in behind him?

I would suggest that unlikely.

His best course of action may be to take this as a wake-up call and fly right. It’s well past time for more Constitutional Loyalty and less Bipartisanshitt.

But experience has shown us The Establishment Republicans will do the exact opposite of swinging back towards the Constitution…

We will see.

Update:  No need to wait long.  Boehner has now made it clear that he has no intention of listening to us.
