Is the Fix In?


First off, I hope that everyone had a safe and relaxing 4th of July weekend.  Unfortunately, reality is back.

As we all know, The Hildebeast was “interviewed” over the weekend concerning her use of a private email server while she was Secretary of State.  As we all know, she has fully admitted the use of the server, stonewalled on releasing any emails from that server, denied that any classified emails were sent or received from the server, it has been hacked by person or persons unknown (presumably foreign governments), and so on.  What is public record is that The Hildebeast did not receive any permissions to use the service, it is a willful criminal violation of her position as Secretary of State, and that such violations are a felony or felonies under United States law.

We also know that her husband met with the Attorney General earlier in the week supposedly talking about anything but the investigation into The Hildebeast.  And yet, said AG has stated that she would act upon the recommendations of the FBI, and potentially assign the case to one of three Democratic prosecutors if the recommendation is to charge The Hildebeast.

To further muddy the waters, The Hildebeast has stated repeatedly that she will not be indicted for anything concerning the matter of the illegal server.  After all, she didn’t do anything wrong…everyone knew that she was using a private server, and didn’t say anything…

Does anyone else think that the fix is in – that The Hildebeast will not face prosecution no matter how damning the evidence?

The Clintons are extremely powerful and connected.  There’s also a trail of corruption, fraud, and suspicious deaths that has followed them from Arkansas that would give one pause about crossing them.  For instance, here’s a list of people who have died that have had dealings with the Clintons (h/t from Clash Daily):

1 – James McDougal – Clinton’s convicted Whitewater partner died of an apparent heart attack, while in solitary confinement. He was a key witness in Ken Starr’s investigation.

It makes one wonder if the following cartoon is closer to the truth than just the humorous aspect:

Political Cartoons by Ken Catalino

While we also know that President Obummer hates the Clintons (and they hate him just as much for “stealing” The Hildebeast’s nomination eight years ago), it is sheer speculation that he will hang The Hildebeast out to dry, at least overtly.  Directly implicating her will implicate himself as he was also the recipient of emails from HRC’s server.  He must do it in such a way that he would avoid any fallout – political, personal, and any anvils falling from the sky…

I’m also sure that the Democratic Party is nervous as well, and will exert considerable pressure to maintain her legal viability to run for the Presidency.  Their alternative is “the Bern,” and that is a scenario that they wish to avoid at all costs.  Dragging up Joe Biden or anyone else as their nominee will guarantee a riot from Sander’s supporters, and lose the White House in the process.

And the media’s reaction to any of the above?  At this point in time, it’s mixed.  Relying upon them is wishful thinking at it’s very best.

I’m going to make the following predictions, and they will p*** off all Americans that still revere our Constitution, any sense of trust in our judicial system, and would dearly like to see The Hildebeast being fitted for an orange jumpsuit…

Truth and justice will take a back seat to The Hildebeast’s march to the White House.  Political deals will be made, people will look the other way, and any charges will evaporate before the public’s eye.  The Hildebeast’s political machine (including the media) will proceed to cut down any detractors, and proceed to lie & cheat in the Presidential campaign.  The Hildebeast will become the next President.

And you know how much I would like to be proven wrong in the above prediction…

Leading from Behind


This past week has shown the American People what the difference is between a community organizer and a leader.  Let us look at the job description of a Community Organizer (excerpted from eHow):

Description

  • Community organizers work to advance racial and economic justice, promote democracy, teach leadership, and develop the sustainability of communities through grassroots campaigns.

Responsibilities

  • Community organizers are responsible for improving their communities by solving conflicts, improving economic outlooks, setting goals and deadlines, and creating positive change.

Campaigns

  • Campaigns are the most common way for community organizers to enact changes to society.

Now a definition for Leadership (excerpted from BusinessDictionary.com):

Leadership involves

  • establishing a clear vision,
  • sharing that vision with others so that they will follow willingly,
  • providing the information, knowledge and methods to realize that vision, and
  • coordinating and balancing the conflicting interests of all members and stakeholders.

A leader steps up in times of crisis, and is able to think and act creatively in difficult situations.

Does anyone not see the difference between the two?

The President of the United States must be a leader, not a community organizer.  He must step up in times of crisis, and be the focal point of the policies and actions for the United States throughout the world as well as on domestic issues.  He must be an advocate for the United States and its People, for the Constitution and the laws of the United States, and for the concept of what has been called American exceptionalism.

President Obama, in my opinion, is not a leader, is not an advocate for the People of the United States, and does the United States a great disservice in our foreign policies with other countries of the world.  Indeed, he has seemingly gone out of his way to gut the United States as a world power, and minimize American exceptionalism and interests.

The recent situation with Syria is just the latest in a long line of missteps that will affect this country far beyond the end of President Obama’s second term.   

What is so bassackward is that a Nobel Peace Prize winner is advocating dropping bombs on a country, and an ex-KGB Lieutenant Colonel with dictator-like tendencies advocating negotiation.  Of course, it doesn’t help that said Nobel Peace Prize paints himself in a corner with threats of red lines and inaction.  Also, when said ex-KGB Lieutenant Colonel  writes an op-ed piece for an American newspaper with statements not very complementary to our leadership or the country, the United States is increasingly seen as a bunch of, well, the following picture says it all:

Media Clowns

Domestically, it’s more of the same chaos and inaction from this Administration that, quite frankly, is becoming more and more hostile to its political opposition and the American people.

Just look at some of the numerous scandals and questionable actions that have occurred with this Administration in charge: 

  • Failed energy company handouts costing billions of taxpayer dollars.
  • Shovel-ready jobs that weren’t which were used as a reason to pass the Stimulus package.
  • Fast & Furious Gunrunning operation which has cost hundreds of lives on both sides of the border.
  • Spying on the Associated Press.
  • Spying on the American People via the NSA.
  • The Benghazi attack – failure to protect American lives through denying increased security measure requests & refusing a rescue mission, misleading the American people as to the cause and events leading up to the attack, and the cover-up of Administration actions & decisions of the President and Secretary of State.
  • The Pigford Scandal.
  • The James Rosen persecution.
  • HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius soliciting donations from companies HHS might regulate, which is a clear violation of various Federal laws.
  • IRS targeting political enemies of the Obama Administration.
  • Multiple conferences and videos by the GSA, IRS, VA, and others wasting millions of taxpayer dollars.
  • President Obama’s constant end-runs around legislation by Administrative decrees in directing various agencies not to enforce various laws (immigration, ObamaCare, etc.)
  • Failure to pursue a voter intimidation case against Black Panthers who appeared to be menacing voters at a polling place in 2008 in Philadelphia.

And the list goes on.

Then there is the continuing war against the American people by this Administration.  Promoting increased government intrusion into the lives of the American People through legislation and regulations making it harder for the American People to thrive.

Top of my list is ObamaCare.  This onerous POC legislation raises costs for everyone, and has so many unintended consequences it is absolutely unbelievable.  This is legislation that must be defunded and repealed – there are better ways to cover the healthcare costs of the uninsurable.  I still remember this quote from an Arlan Spector /  Kathleen Sebelius townhall discussing the legislation before it was passed:

“I look at this health care plan and I see nothing that is about health or about care. What I see is a bureaucratic nightmare, Senator.  Medicaid is broke, Medicare is broke, Social Security is broke and you want us to believe that a government that can’t even run a cash for clunkers program is going to run one-seventh of our U.S. economy?  No sir, no.”

Anyone watching the news and seeing the fallout with our legislators running from it as fast as possible know that this legislation is truly a disaster (or train wreck, as one Democratic Senator called it).

Next on my list is the assault on the Bill of Rights by the Administration & even our own Congress. 

Political correctness has gone wild, stifling any reasonable conversations on difficult topics.  It’s hard to discuss the issues when constantly defending oneself from charges of racism, bigotry, and other non-productive nonsense.  Our First Amendment rights are violated and stifled by the actions of an ever intrusive Government when just talking about certain subjects could be considered a hate crime.  This is just absolutely insane, especially when the above scandals against the Press and the public are taken into consideration.

The right to defend oneself against an aggressor is also under attack by this Administration’s assault upon the Second Amendment.  The goal is to remove all firearms from the American citizen’s hands, and leave them in the hands of “qualified” government employees.  That in itself is scary, especially when on the news report this morning that two bystanders were wounded when New York police opened fire on a suspect that was thought to have a gun (he didn’t). Obviously, the police are not qualified to handle firearms (they missed their suspect and wounded two women) nor were they correct in their justification to use deadly force (the suspect did not have a weapon). 

Now I am for removing weapons from the hands of criminals, and I am for letting the public to arm themselves if they so wish (it is a personal choice, not a mandate).  If an 80-year old grandmother wants to have a weapon to defend herself from someone who breaks into her home for an unknown purpose, then so be it.  The police cannot be everywhere all the time, and despite the motto “To Protect and Serve,” the police are not under any legal obligation to protect you. It’s up to us to defend ourselves.

The Fourth Amendment states that:

“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.” – Fourth Amendment to The United States Constitution

Think of the NSA spying, and of the recent actions of the Boston Police Department (among others) breaking down doors without warrants or probable cause, and you should understand the above.

I could go on, but this is already a long post.  But here’s the bottom line:

The Administration, especially the President, is criminally incompetent to hold the office or the positions that they currently occupy.  I do believe, though, that the President has repeatedly violated his oath to “protect and defend the Constitution of the United States” by continuing to promote the expansion of power of his office over the American People, and by bungling the foreign policy that this country needs to promote the security of the United States.  While the President and his Cabinet have not at this time been accused of the “high crimes and misdemeanors” needed for a removal from office, I believe that time is close at hand.  The hubris that these people have is overwhelming, and they will make a mistake that make such a removal from office possible.

While I understand that there is a movement to impeach the President and various members of his Cabinet, I somehow do not think that such an action will happen fast enough nor have the desired impact of removing these clowns from office.  Indeed, President Clinton was impeached, but not removed from office.  Eric Holder was held in contempt of Congress, but he is still Attorney General.

I guess the American People are not going to get the change we need.  We need a leader who will take responsibility, not a community organizer that leads from behind.

Reality Check


The IRS targeting conservative groups.  Benghazi.  ObamaCare. Gun Control.  Solyndra.  Sequestration targeting cuts causing as much pain as possible to the population.  Fast and Furious.  GSA Las Vegas spending boondoggle.  Justice Department wiretapping AP.  Congress not reading the bills they are voting on with all the amendments.  The drive toward unsustainable renewable energy.  Lies and broken promises.  A stimulus for shovel-ready jobs that weren’t there.  Class and race warfare.  And more.

What do the above have in common?

The answer is a government gone wild on power.

And who’s to blame?

We are.  We elected these clowns, continue to re-elect them, and collectively  refuse to open our eyes to the realities that an out of control government will eventually drown each one of us in debt and ruin as it attempts to feed itself.  And government is doing a damn fine job in doing just that, especially with the current Administration.

I’ve always known that the politicians are in it for themselves.  What has been different over the past five years is that the Obama Administration has shown such audacity and arrogance in saying one thing then shafting the public by doing the exact opposite of what they said.  What is worse is that the public’s reliance upon the media to ferret out such betrayals has been compromised by that same media’s support of this administration for only God knows what.  With the recent exposure to the government’s warrantless wiretapping of AP for what appears to be political reasons might change this support, but it’s probably too late.

The damage that this Administration has done to the economy of the United States is incalculable.  The divisiveness between the political parties and even between the citizenry is destructive to all progress to move forward.  The chaos that results is ripe for a government to gain more and more control over the population because of the uncertainty of the population has been conditioned by that same media to look toward government to take care of them.

My friends, that desire for “Uncle Sam” to come forward and take care of us is an experiment that has gone wrong, and was doomed to failure from the beginning.

The strength of the United States has always been with the People, not of the government.  The People are to be strong, independent, self-reliant, and by the self determination of the individual, prosperous and responsible.  It is by these traits the person, the individual, will gain the self-esteem and pride that the person desires.

This is the exact opposite of the Liberals, who state through their policies that the individual gains all of this by government mandate.  I realize that this is an oversimplification, but where is this a wrong statement?  Where do the Liberals in government not state that one must give in to the will of the people through the Gordian’s Knot of laws, regulations, and edicts that must make the outcomes of everyone’s labor fair and equal?  Indeed, there is a mandate for equal outcomes, and not one for equal opportunity.  Thus, the population is being brainwashed accordingly.

From the article “A Nation of Cowards” by Jeffery R. Snyder:

The liberal elite know that they are philosopher-kings. They know that the people simply cannot be trusted; that they are incapable of just and fair self-government; that left to their own devices, their society will be racist, sexist, homophobic, and inequitable — and the liberal elite know how to fix things. They are going to help us live the good and just life, even if they have to lie to us and force us to do it. And they detest those who stand in their way.

Look at the list of events and scandals at the beginning of this post.  And I mean really, really look and think – Where is there no manipulation of these events by the Administration or government that does not benefit those same entities?  I personally find the concept frightening.

But perhaps what I find of more concern is the chipping away of the foundation of this Country – The Constitution with the Bill of Rights.

Again, from  “A Nation of Cowards” by Jeffery R. Snyder:

In United States v. Cruikshank (1876), the first case in which the Court had an opportunity to interpret the Second Amendment, it stated that the right confirmed by the Second Amendment “is not a right granted by the constitution. Neither is it in any manner dependent upon that instrument for its existence.” The repeal of the Second Amendment would no more render the outlawing of firearms legitimate than the repeal of the due process clause of the Fifth Amendment would authorize the government to imprison and kill people at will. A government that abrogates any of the Bill of Rights, with or without majoritarian approval, forever acts illegitimately, becomes tyrannical, and loses the moral right to govern.

Read the above again.  And again. And again.  Think about what our government is doing now to various citizens of opposing political views.  Think of the repeated statements that the Constitution is an outdated document and must be “fixed” by the same political elite that swore oaths to uphold and protect the very same document that is the founding principle of this country.  Think of the Administration mandating to law enforcement what laws to enforce and not enforce.  Are you scared now?

From the article “By the Consent of the Governed”, The American Rifleman, July, 1961:

The disappearance of the sturdy, independent minded, freedom loving individual and his replacement by a servile, mass mentality is one of the GREATEST HUMAN MENACES OF OUR TIME. Freedom is not a thing that can be imposed from without. It can only be created from within. It’s very essence is that of self creation. Nations do not, cannot make free men – men make free nations. Freedom of the individual is the foundation stone of American Liberty. The basic “Rights” guaranteed to the people in the Constitution of the United States, all of them, not just the ones that happen to not effect certain individuals, are a priceless heritage. When any “one of our Rights” are encroached upon, “every one of our Rights” are weakened and we should all be shocked and outraged to action.

I came across this quote by chance:

“I am freeing men from the burden of freedom which only a few can bear.” – Adolf Hitler

I believe we are at a critical time in our country.  We are beginning to see the overt arrogance of the political elite running our country, and it is time that we, the American Citizen, make our voices heard to our elected representatives and/or elect their replacements in each and every election cycle.  It is our responsibility to hold our elected officials for their actions, and to not rely upon government to take responsibility for us.  There is no other choice if we expect this country to continue.
