Of Hypocrisy and Political Expedients

21 May 2019

“We should make it clear that if Iran cheats, the repercussions will be severe. … [Iran] will never be permitted to produce highly enriched uranium, and if it attempts to do so, it will be stopped with force.”

-A Warmonger

Oooooooo! Scary stuff, hey keeds? That WARMONGER! Trying to push us into a war with Iran! He needs to be reined in! He needs to be IMPEACHED before he drags us into another war in the Middle East! He needs to… He needs to….

He needs to be identified as Adam Schiff, circa 2015.

The Pot’s Trivet Calls The Kettle Black…

“He is an illegitimate president in my mind,” she added. “That’s it. I think all the talk about impeachment and what the Democrats should do, that’s fine, it’s theoretical at this point. Let them investigate, let them subpoena, let them go to the Supreme Court, he’s illegitimate. and my biggest fear is that he’s going to do it again with the help of Vlad, his best pal, and we’re going to be stuck for six more years of this guy. And that is terrifying. It’s terrifying.”

-Some TDS Conspiracy Theorist

 “Folks, look, I absolutely agree.”

-Joe “Second Man” Biden in reply

Joe, Joe, Joe…

If ever there was a president whose past was shrouded in secrecy, whose bonafides were actively secreted away behind restraining orders and orchestrated efforts to keep them out of the public’s eye – if ever there was a president whose every action smacked of an attempt to cover up his illegitimacy… it wasn’t Trump.

Democracy Dies in Darkness

– The Washington Post’s slogan

Agreed. It dies in the darkness of a misused Department of Justice. It dies in the darkness of the cover used by politicized agents and officials in attempting to use the machinery of our government to unseat a duly elected president. It dies in the face of the hubris of individuals too self-important to see that what they are doing is immoral, illegal, and highly unethical.

It dies when a party grasps for power even when the people have decided they should not have that power. It dies when a party focuses its entire being on obstructing the efforts of duly-elected officials in executing the duties of their office.

It dies when a party purchases documents made of whole-cloth lies, and foists this document as evidence. It dies when useful idiots, such as John McCain, carry these falsehoods forward, like the pawn of the left he was, providing just the shade they need to “legitimize” their efforts.

It dies when a party can conduct show trials against those who deliver the bad news that their affront to this country, its laws, and its constitution will not stand. It dies when those charge with conducting an investigation refuse to draw the obvious conclusions from their work for political reasons.

But, mostly , it dies when the electorate chooses immoral, unethical, criminal, and unintelligent people who are running for office for unpatriotic reasons to represent them. This is the greater threat to our democratic republic – that there are those who have voted for, and will continue to vote for such as these. And what is scarier still is that these actions are not in darkness, except, perhaps, a darkness of intellect…

Lemonazard, I Choose You!

1 May 2019

“If you don’t take umbrage with the president of the United States misleading you, the attorney general of the United States misleading you — lying, both of them — then what are you gonna take issue with? What are you gonna have a problem with? When you’re supposed to be the party of the rule of law, when you have a president and the attorney general who are not fighting for the rule of law but who are carrying the water for indecent and inappropriate and possibly even unlawful behavior, what is gonna upset you?”

—CNN’s Don Lemon

How about we take issue with YOU? How does that suit you? When I look for disinformation and flat out lies, I look in two directions: the democrats, and their propaganda arm: the mainstream media.

Frankly, I don’t believe Trump is beyond reproach, but I also don’t believe he nor Barr are lying. “Russian collusion” was created out of whole cloth by Clinton’s campaign, and has been kept alive by YOU and the idiots in Washington. Obstruction of justice? There is no justice in false accusations. How can there be obstruction in resisting it? And, by the way, reading through the head inquisitor’s report: there wasn’t any obstruction of that injustice, either.

I watched the Kavanaugh hearings and saw all the trumped up (pardon the pun) accusations and “evidence”. I heard Waters and Pelosi and Schumer and especially Nadler and Schiff pile lie upon lie until they discovered they were already proven wrong (though Waters, Nadler and Schiff haven’t quite figured out that last bit). And I see you people repeating their lies and providing them with cover.

But it didn’t start there. It’s been thus for DECADES. Personally, I cannot remember a single journalist in my lifetime whom I would call a “reporter”. Every damn one is an interpreter and their interpretation has always leaned so far to the left as to demonstrate OBVIOUS bias.

Frankly, you and the rest of your ilk disgust me. No wonder newspapers and “news shows” are a dying breed.

Good riddance.

“Not only hanging on but he appears to still control the military. You have to understand, in Venezuela gun ownership is not something that’s open to everybody. So if the military have the guns, they have the power and as long as Nicolás Maduro controls the military, he controls the country.”

– MSNBC’s Kerry Sanders

And there, in one breathy paragraph, Kerry Sanders has given voice to why the 2nd Amendment to our constitution is important, and why the “elite” would like to see it eliminated.
