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 charged 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.

A Classic Case of Projection

25 April 2019

“What’s clear from this administration, and what’s clear throughout the entirety of his business practices, is that they will lie, cheat, and steal. They’ll do anything to win. They have so eroded institutions of democracy. We have to be prepared for lying, cheating, and stealing. They have an approach to undermining our democracy that is shameful and that is why we are organizing everywhere. That is why we are preparing for every eventuality.”

DNC Chairman Tom Perez

Excuse me?!

I am aware of only one party that has been recently caught red-handed purchasing “evidence” created out of whole cloth and foisting it upon the FISA court – and the public – as hard evidence of wrong-doing.

There is only one party that has been recently caught red-handed allowing one of its candidates to “buy” the nomination despite the desires of the party members and their votes.

There is only one party whose leading candidate had been recently caught red-handed sending classified communications outside of approved networks, lying about it, and then working strenuously to destroy evidence and otherwise cover it up.

There is only one party whose chairman had hired an IT consultant who appeared to be, at the very minimum, running fast and loose with access to congressional servers, and refused to intervene to fire him/them until pretty much forced to do so.

There is only one party that continues to push and support a politician disgraced in a plagiarism scandal in 1987. (What is it with the democrats’ attraction to criminals?!)

I get it, Tommy. The big (D) can’t win without running against someone, because your platform is a JATO-propelled slide into socialism and all the hell that comes with it. We also understand the need for you to flat-out lie about those you run against because, if the truth is allowed to reign, there is again no way in hell that (D)s could win as most sentient beings do not want the hellish utopia you espouse. Therefor, (D)-leaning voters must be diverted from seeing the truth of what any alternative offers. (Good thing the MSM is fundamentally your propaganda arm these day, hey, Bub?)

But everything – literally everything – you decry in the screed cited at the top of this entry as being facets of this administration are, in fact, what we’ve been seeing from the DNC!

Of the DNC, I can only say that they… will lie, cheat, and steal. They’ll do anything to win. They have so eroded institutions of democracy. They have an approach to undermining our democracy that is shameful.

By the way, Tom, don’t think I’m a shill for the (R)s, either. I have no use for their wishy-washy “conservatism” – just (D)-lite without the socialism or the fascination with criminals…

The only thing we have to fear…

17 April 2019

“What we’re saying is, have a message that appeals to people in a way that does not menace them — that really does address their concerns. When we win and we have the White House and we have that, then we can expand our exuberances to some other things.” — Nancy Pelosi

It’s that last bit that should strike fear into the hearts of freedom-loving Americans everywhere. It is yet another exposure of the (D) hand: campaign on one thing, execute something altogether different. Similar to these gems:

  • “We don’t have a border crisis, and illegal aliens are better than our own citizens” is another – until faced with them being bused into their so-called “sanctuary cities”. Then it becomes “Trump is cruel!” and “That would put everybody at risk!”
  • Bernie “Medicare For All But Socialism Only For You” Sanders makes a million or two and only pays the minimum tax under a tax plan he voted AGAINST, but you? You’re expected to give 52% to the government under his plan.

There’s hypocrisy enough in just the upper echelons of that party to suffice for the whole country.

No. We only worship God.

French Priest’s 150-Year-Old Heart Being Worshipped in NYC – US News & World Report, sourced from the Associated Press

Just to prove it is not only the sociopolitical front in which the MSN gets everything wrong, we have this. The MSM once again demonstrates how they will allow their opinions and prejudices to interfere with their job of reporting the news instead of interpreting it. (Why this centuries-old practice is even “news” will be left for a future discussion.)

Catholics, of which I am one, worship only God. We do not worship “idols” in the statues and relics in our churches any more than you believe a photograph of your loved one is actually that person rather than a simple representation to remind you of them. Praying to saints isn’t worshiping them – it is asking for their intercession on our behalf with our Judge much in the same way a lawyer intercedes on your behalf with a judge in a courtroom.

And we don’t “worship” the 150-year-old heart of a priest.

At its basis, the Catholic tradition of relics is simply an institutionalized manifestation of the human inclination to keep things to remind them of lost loved ones. These relics are taken from those recognized as being holier than the run-of-the-mill Catholic for whatever reason. But they are venerated as opposed worshiped. They are treated with great respect and reverence – much like how you would handle great great Aunt Sally’s crystal vase, handed down through generations, when taking it out to show someone.

See the difference?

And there ya go, Flake!

“Look at the long term, at what you’re doing for the party… ” – Failed politician Jeff Flake

And there, Jeffy-boy, is your problem: had you been looking at what you were doing for the country rather than what you were doing for yourself, your “brand”, or “the party”, perhaps people wouldn’t label you with things like “failed politician”, “Judas goat”, or “that moron”.

Defining moment…

15 March 2019

“Democracy should mean taking power and wealth from those who hoard it, and making sure it belongs to everyone.” —Waleed Shahid

Dude! DUDE! Hey, dude! Shhhh! SSSSHHHHH! That’s not the definition of democracy! That’s the definition of SOCIALISM!
