They must think everyone is a useful idiot

The usual democratic party operatives with bylines are hard at work trying to confound you and provide cover for what seems to be the most banana republicesque election cycle to hit this Country. Pradva of NY has a piece titled “Officials Fight Donald Trump’s Claims of a Rigged Vote“, where they try hard to make Trump sound like a loon for claiming the election is rigged. You can find more of the same at CNN, where an article titled “Trump ratchets up ‘rigged election’ claims, which Pence downplays desperately wants to convince you Trump has gone off the deep end, and even his VEEP is scrambling to cover for that. The WaPo takes it even further with a propaganda piece titled “Trump claims election is ‘rigged’ and seems to suggest Clinton was on drugs at debate. The horror! The man is off his rockers!

Of course, what they hope you are unaware off, and definitely avoiding in all this Kabuki theater, is that fact that Hillary’s people already rigged the Democratic primaries:

In its recent leak of 20,000 DNC emails from January 2015 to May 2016, DNC staff discuss how to deal with Bernie Sanders’ popularity as a challenge to Clinton’s candidacy. Instead of treating Sanders as a viable candidate for the Democratic ticket, the DNC worked against him and his campaign to ensure Clinton received the nomination.

Yeah you might want to deflect by pretending that this crime was just to secure a Hillary victory and was just a primary race, but how much of a stretch is it to extrapolate, based on the massive amount of illegal activities and absolute corruption by every level of this administration during the last 8 years, that these people, seeing how Hillary simply isn’t able to seal the deal – even with massive media shilling and lying, oodles of tainted money, and an opposition candidate that is a giant douche – would feel compelled to rig the national election as well? After all, these are the same people that have spent the last 8 years sicking the IRS, DOJ, FBI, and every other government bureaucracy you can think of on enemies of the left. The same people that continue to break the law at their leisure, lie with impunity about doing that law breaking, and engage in the most underhanded and downright criminal of activities, without fear of repercussions of any kind!

At the risk of having Hal that thinks only the DNC operatives with bylines that have been shilling, lying, covering and colluding with the left should be seen as legitimate, I point out that others have found serious issues. While the left would love you to buy the nonsense that voter fraud is a myth, and that anyone trying to tackle that is doing so out of racist motivations, reality bears out otherwise. The left lies about the fact that it not only exists, but is pervasive and favors them. Don’t take my word for it: here is NYC Democratic Commissioner of the Board of Elections Alan Schulkin admitting it is the case. Remember that the Sanders campaign hinted at the fact there was fraud – and we now know the nomination was rigged so there likely was fraud – going on. Same applies to Trump winning the republican nomination.

Ask yourself: why would democrats be fine with the scary fact that there are 4 million ineligible or dead voters on the rolls? And then there are the large number of articles we have seen, over just the last few months, practically all largely ignored by the DNC operatives with bylines, of county after county – across the country – finding some from of fraud. From illegals, felons, and dead people voting, to people that vote multiple times or vote illegally for the other side’s candidate. Here is one from the beginning of the year, long before Trump said anything. Then there was this one dealing with non-citizens voting in frighting numbers in Maryland. And just today we found out that Texas is investigating allegations of voter fraud in Tarrant county.

The list of cases of voter fraud is extensive, even if Google does its best to hide the facts and serves up the left’s pap about fraud being a myth unless you put in refined and detailed criteria to avoid it doing that crap.And the fact that the fraud is committed predominantly by those that will cast their vote for party of free shit and anarchy, isn’t a coincidence. I actually happen to think that Trump is way off on his claims. There will be no need for fraud, because in the end, with so much on the line and the left not being able to take the risk of the reigns of power going to someone else and the people finding out the levels of depravity and abuse that have been going on, will take a page right out of Stalin’s playbook this election. As Stalin pointed out:

It is enough that the people know there was an election. The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.

Yeah, voter fraud will not decide the election: the people that will hand it to Hillary will. That’s how banana republics work.

It’s confirmed! Obamacare ‘s real purpose was…

So, those of us that pointed out Obamacare was designed from the start to fail, so the collectivist scumbags could force an unwanted single-payer system on us, and that they would do so in a way that would allow them to blame others for this horrible monstrosity that became law on a party-line vote, have been vindicated:

An email leaked by WikiLeaks Tuesday appears to suggest that Hillary Clinton wants the Affordable Care Act to fail — presumably as a pretense for implementing single-payer, government-controlled health care.

In a chain between Clinton and her senior policy adviser Ann O’Leary titled “Memo on Cadillac Tax for HRC,” Clinton said she’s open to changing her position on the Cadillac Tax — but that the Republican plan to repeal it must pass.

“Given the politics now w bipartisan support including Schumer, I’ll support repeal w ‘sense of the Senate’ that revenues would have to be found,” Clinton wrote. “I’d be open to a range of options to do that. But we have to be careful that the R version passes which begins the unraveling of the ACA,” she continued.

There is no “presuming” that they want failure so they could implement an generally despised single-payer system: that has been the objective from the start. This is how the left gets things people would never accept otherwise: create a catastrophe, then demand they be given even more power so they can be the ones allowed to fix it. Remember the housing crisis and financial markets collapse? More of the same.

Controlling healthcare, currently 1/6 of the US economy, and having the power to make life and death decisions, is incredibly appealing to the people that see the power in government control of institutions that can be used to keep the sheep in line. If it is not obvious to you that once government controls healthcare it will be used as a tool to quiet or control political enemies, just look at the IRS and DOJ scandals.

Fascist Prosecutors Should be Fired

Recently, California passed a law ramping up the penalties for prosecutors who intentionally withhold or falsify evidence. While I think the burden of proof for falsifying evidence should be high, I support heavy punishments for those who do. I’m somewhat inclined to the biblical point of view: if you falsify evidence, you should be punished as the person you tried to frame would have been.

While prosecutorial misconduct (and “papering” judges who call it out) is a problem, there is another problem with prosecutors that need to be addressed and that is the ongoing use of the office to carry out political agendas or to punish people the prosecutor doesn’t like. I’ve spoken before about the state Attorneys General who are attempting to prosecute organizations and companies that “deny” global warming. But the most recent example involves Backpage:

For the past five years, pompous politicians have repeatedly attempted to bully and threaten Backpage into removing its designated escort ad section in the same way they terrorized Craigslist into doing it, and like all bullies they’ve grown increasingly crimson-faced and apoplectic as the Backpage has not only ignored their toothless threats, but beaten them at every turn in court. The reason this has happened is that career politicians are narcissistic sociopaths who can’t grasp when they’re in the wrong and are no more capable of rethinking their tactics than a tribe of rather slow-witted gibbons might be; because Craigslist backed down after a bit of posturing and saber-rattling, naturally the politicians assumed the same schoolyard tactics would work on Backpage.

The AGs alledge that Backpage is being used to traffic sex slaves, a claim for which there is no evidence. In fact, Backpage works with authorities, providing them information on ads they think involved underage or exploited girls. This cooperation reached the predictable result when the AGs of Texas and California issued arrest warrants for Backpages CEO on “pimping” charges. As Elizabeth Nolan Brown details, the evidence backing up these charges is … wanting.

Their “evidence”? It’s… insane. I don’t know how else to describe it other than that. Throughout the complaint, Fichtner uses instances of Backpage cooperating with law-enforcement and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in identifying and finding potential victims as evidence that Backpage profits off of exploitation. Backpage is literally rejecting—and turning over to the government—ads that may promote sex trafficking, and the government says, see! proof that sex traffickers love Backpage! Shut it down! It’s like a building owner reporting predatory activity out front and the cops arresting him and tearing up the street corner instead of tracking down the predator.

It also gives lie to the idea that this crusade against Backpage is about stopping the sexual exploitation of children and not eradicating online ads for sexual-services entirely. First, officials went after the “adult services” section on Craigslist. Then they took down sex-ad forum, the gay prostitution site, and escort review forum The Review Board. Next up: Backpage. It’s simply the latest target in the U.S. government’s quixotic and cruel aim to make sex-work as hidden (and dangerous) as possible.

But there’s more to this than just the government’s effort to stop consenting adults from exchanging sex for money. No, this is fascism. And Kamala Harris is a fascist and belongs nowhere near the Senate seat she is likely to win and that she pulled this stunt to get closer to.

Hyperbolic? What Harris (and Texas AG Paxton) are doing is trying to hold a website responsible for the contents of user posts. This is in violation of Section 230 of the CDA, which immunizes websites from being prosecuted for things readers post.

It’s hard to overstate just how insidious an attack on Section 230 is. Section 230 is one of the most important laws defending our free speech. It’s the reason that Jim could not be sued for anything that Alex or I post here (which I’m sure is a tremendous relief to Jim). It’s the reason Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, etc. exist. Without Section 230, any post, any comment, any picture, any article could result in a flurry of lawsuits, mostly designed to silence critics of the wealthy and powerful. Only organization with deep pockets — like the lapdog media — would be able to use the internet.

So yes, I think the fascist iron-tipped boot fits in this case. Kamala Harris and Ken Paxton are using garbage evidence and a moral panic to attack one of the pillars of free speech. Don’t be fooled by their panic-mongering talk of sex slaves. If they gave a damn about that, they’d legalize sex work for consenting adults and find themselves with a hundred times the resources they already have to go after real sexual slavery and abuse. This is about seizing money, this about controlling the behavior of adults, this is about smashing free speech, this is about vaulting one of them into the Senate and one, presumably, into a future governorship or senate seat.

(And while we’re on the subject of fascist prosecutors who should be fired, let’s go after the one who tried to imprison Amy Goodman for reporting on a pipeline protest. The protest is dumb; arresting a journalist for covering it is vile.)

So it looks like the WH was behind making sure Hillary was NOT charged for breaking the law

While the left and the media remain focused on the fact that Trump acts like an alpha male, all while ignoring that Bill Clinton is a serial rapist, and his wife, not just an enabler, but the one that has gone out of her way to destroy anyone that tried to point that out, revelations abound that proveHillary should have been charged, but was not, because the WH made that happen. From the article:

“It is well known that the FBI agents on the ground, the human beings who did the investigative work, had built an extremely strong case against Hillary Clinton and were furious when the case did not move forward,” said Napolitano. “They believe the decision not to prosecute came from The White House.”

The claim also is backed up by a report in the New York Post this week, which quotes a number of veteran FBI agents saying FBI Director James Comey “has permanently damaged the bureau’s reputation for uncompromising investigations with his cowardly whitewash of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified information using an unauthorized private email server.”

“The FBI has politicized itself, and its reputation will suffer for a long time. I hold Director Comey responsible,” Dennis V. Hughes, the first chief of the FBI’s computer investigations unit, told the Post. Retired FBI agent Michael M. Biasello added to the report, saying, “Comey has singlehandedly ruined the reputation of the organization.”

Especially angering the team, which painstakingly pieced together deleted emails and interviewed witnesses to prove that sensitive information was left unprotected, was the fact that Comey based his decision on a conclusion that a recommendation to charge would not be followed by DOJ prosecutors, even though the bureau’s role was merely to advise, Fox News was told.

“Basically, James Comey hijacked the DOJ’s role by saying ‘no reasonable prosecutor would bring this case,’” the Fox News source said. “The FBI does not decide who to prosecute and when, that is the sole province of a prosecutor — that never happens.

“I know zero prosecutors in the DOJ’s National Security Division who would not have taken the case to a grand jury,” the source added. “One was never even convened.”

Napolitano agreed, saying the FBI investigation was hampered from the beginning, because there was no grand jury, and no search warrants or subpoenas issued.

Those of us that have seen the pattern established during the last 8 years, where some of the most egregious and illegal things were done by practically every federal agency across the board, only to have the WH pretend they were surprised by what was going on and claiming to be out of the loop, only to later discover evidence to the contrary that was from then on ignored, knew that the orders to let Hillary walk came from the WH.

I suspected from the start that Hillary and her people would never have dared to try and delete the emails outright like they did, if they, even a second, believed this would come back against them. And the only way this level of disdain for the law and the system of justice could continue for years, was if the WH was calling the shots behind the scenes. The media has avoided this story for a reason, opting instead to make excuses for Clinton and carry her water when she blames a vast right wing group for her law breaking and creating all sorts of distractions (like this current crusade against Trump’s demeanor towards women).

But we know now that she did what she did deliberately. She also did it with backing from the WH. And that was because she had Obama by the balls. That idiot went out and pretended he had no idea that she had that server when the story came out, only to now be caught communicating with her through a pseudonym email (a clear sign that even he knew this was some serious law breaking that Hillary was doing). Will this change anything? not a chance. The left will keep producing people that will say Donald is a cad and objectifies women, because we all know that unless you have the (D) next to your name, you can be held liable even for just thinking bad thoughts. If you have that (D) however, you have carte blanch. These same shrews will not only make excuses for you but help defend you from those that might think this crap is about something other than the left using it for political gain. In the mean time voters – the ones that actually might have a problem with someone that after these things likely now thinks she is above the law and is likely to do much worse, and not the ones that don’t care, because she is a member of their team – are getting shafted because they don’t hear what kind of evil criminal Hillary is.

I for one have experience with the WH sicking its agencies on those they view as their enemies. I suspect this will become far more common and be far reaching under another Clinton administration. I have no faith in our system of justice anymore, and I am not alone there. The marxists used to object to the system because the powerful could get away with everything. It obviously looks like the real objection was that people other than them might get away with shit. They sure don’t feel the law applies to them. Real champions of the people these porgs, ain’t they?

America loses yet again..

President Carter wants to thank you for making his presidency look decent

If you have been avoiding what is really going on so you can keep living in your liberal bubble of how awesome team Obama’s popularity, and hence according to people that think that should be the measure of their effectiveness, the world is, These last few days should suck ass. Where to begin?

There is so much shit it literally boggles the mind. So I will stick to the real current stuff. Remember that peace deal Kerry told us Team Obama had secured? Calling it a disaster would be an understatement. In fact, it is so bad that Gorbachev decided he needed to comment on it.

Hey wasn’t it one of the current candidates for the office of POTUS that negotiated a new reset with Moscow in the heydays of the Obama world tour of popularism? I wonder why she isn’t mentioning that as one of her long list of accomplishments these days? And things have gotten so f-ed up that even the highly biased Nobel peace prize gang of thugs that once gave Obama an award simply because he wasn’t that cowboy Boosh, now would like to take it back (or at least for you to forget this idiotic act of political Kabuki).

Anyway, here is something to think about as we keep getting told that Trump is the one that will start WWIII:

Moscow (AFP) – Former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev warned on Monday that the world has reached a “dangerous point” as tensions between Russia and the United States spike over the Syria conflict.

Relations between Moscow and Washington — already at their lowest since the Cold War over the Ukraine conflict — have soured further in recent days as the United States pulled the plug on Syria talks and accused Russia of hacking attacks.

The Kremlin has suspended a series of nuclear pacts, including a symbolic cooperation deal to cut stocks of weapons-grade plutonium.

“I think the world has reached a dangerous point,” Gorbachev, 85, told state news agency RIA Novosti.

Anyone doubt Clinton will do anything but worse than the current community organizer? I certainly am not. But hey! Both are very, very popular around the globe. Especially in countries that love to see the US brought low and actually pine for its destruction. But that’s a sign of great statesmanship and a coherent foreign policy policy that makes the world a better place!

Or something, something…

The Latest Nobel

Well, this is awkward:

The president of Colombia was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize on Friday for pursuing a deal to end 52 years of conflict with a leftist rebel group, the longest-running war in the Americas, just five days after Colombians rejected the agreement in a shocking referendum result.

The decision to give the prize to the Colombian president, Juan Manuel Santos, may revive hopes for the agreement with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, with whom the country has been waging the last major guerrilla struggle in Latin America.

Mr. Santos said he was told of the Nobel committee’s decision by his son Martín, who woke him before dawn on Friday. The winner dedicated the prize to his fellow Colombians, especially the victims of the long conflict, and called on the opponents of the peace deal to join him in securing an end to hostilities.

In case you weren’t paying attention, the people of Colombia narrowly rejected the peace deal, mainly because they feel it is too forgiving on FARC for their past terrorist activities and gives FARC a legitimate political presence. I do not know nearly enough about the situation to judge wether these criticisms are fair or not.

However, I can not think of a better illustration of the futility of the Noble Peace Prize than giving it out days after the recipient’s signature achievement failed. I guess next year, they’ll give it to Hillary Clinton, win or lose, just because.

This must be what they meant when they made the ludicrous claim Obamacare would make healthcare affordable

So the WaPo is running an article titled “Obama administration may use obscure fund to pay billions to ACA insurers” which basically tries to make the criminals in the WH look like heroes, because they have found a way to circumvent congress and the will of the plebes:

The Obama administration is maneuvering to pay health insurers billions of dollars the government owes under the Affordable Care Act, through a move that could circumvent Congress and help shore up the president’s signature legislative achievement before he leaves office.

Justice Department officials have privately told several health plans suing over the unpaid money that they are eager to negotiate a broad settlement, which could end up offering payments to about 175 health plans selling coverage on ACA marketplaces, according to insurance executives and lawyers familiar with the talks.

The payments most likely would draw from an obscure Treasury Department fund intended to cover federal legal claims, the executives and lawyers said. This approach would get around a recent congressional ban on the use of Health and Human Services money to pay the insurers.

I mean, why not? Aren’t these the same people that paid off Iran and lied about what they were doing to convince people that had stopped Iran from pursuing a nuke and missiles to get them on target, only for us to find out Iran is going right ahead with more of the same and now also grabs US citizens as hostages, because these morons will pay ransom money to avoid us finding out we were had? Isn’t this the same administration that told the FBI to let that criminal Clinton break the law and commit acts that should have resulted in her inability to ever hold any kind of security clearance as well as spend time in an orange jump suit making license plates, because if they had gone after her Obama would have gone down too for knowing this was happening and then lying about not knowing? It was this administration that has set new records for law breaking and abrogation of powers to the executive after the lot of them spend 8 years whining about evil Boosh and promising they would fix everything and also be totally transparent about it?

The lesson here is a simple one: never trust the left. They are liars, crooks, and will always do whatever it takes, because to them the end justifies the means. Nothing should frighten you more than some credentialed collectivist twit telling you they are doing something to help you. What they are doing is to help themselves, and you are sure to be fucked over in the process, sooner than later. Guaranteed.

Vindicated? Yeah, but they mean well so ignore it…

Well, I was certain that when Obama told everyone he had no clue Hillary was using an illegal server – an act that should have had her wearing an orange jumpsuit and printing license plates while not making sweet love with Big Bertha – back whenever that this was just another one of his many lies that we would never get the skinny on. Turns out I was wrong for a change:

President Barack Obama used a pseudonym in email communications with Hillary Clinton and others, according to FBI records made public Friday.

The disclosure came as the FBI released its second batch of documents from its investigation into Clinton’s private email server during her tenure as secretary of state.

The 189 pages the bureau released includes interviews with some of Clinton’s closest aides, such as Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills; senior State Department officials; and even Marcel Lazar, better known as the Romanian hacker “Guccifer.”

In an April 5, 2016 interview with the FBI, Abedin was shown an email exchange between Clinton and Obama, but the longtime Clinton aide did not recognize the name of the sender.

“Once informed that the sender’s name is believed to be pseudonym used by the president, Abedin exclaimed: ‘How is this not classified?'” the report says. “Abedin then expressed her amazement at the president’s use of a pseudonym and asked if she could have a copy of the email.”

The State Department has refused to make public that and other emails Clinton exchanged with Obama. Lawyers have cited the “presidential communications privilege,” a variation of executive privilege, in order to withhold the messages under the Freedom of Information Act.

The report doesn’t provide more details on the contents of that particular email exchange, but says it took place on June 28, 2012, and had the subject line: “Re: Congratulations.” It may refer to the Supreme Court’s ruling that day upholding a key portion of the Obamacare law.

I bet you that like Clinton, the asshole that promised the most transparent administration evah! (anyone remember that promise?), will plead stupidity and expect a pass from the usual morons. I expect the media to give this all a wide birth (covering it like angel of mercy nurses do to their victims with a pillow) or spin it for all it is worth. Their focus will be on Trump saying something un-PC. In the mean time the world finds out that the US is being run by a crime syndicate masquerading as the DNC. But who cares about that? The left means well!

The first amendment was written specifically to stop shit like this

What am I talking about? Well, WaPo has an article called “Congress to allow special restrictions on speech ‘inappropriate with respect to race, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, or other intrinsic characteristic’?” which is exactly why the brilliant, but now much maligned, white men with wigs put the first amendment in the Constitution. When government starts regulating speech, no matter how noble their intent (claimed, because I am sure this is about giving them a weapon to censor the uppity people), the road to hell is paved with these kinds of good intentions.

This ends bad for us people. America, nay the Western World, is heading in the wrong direction, because our credentialed elite class that runs the institutions of power & politics are comprised mostly of petty incapable people that actually look down on those of us that want nothing to do with their globalist wealth redistribution agenda that obviously is intended to enrich them as they steal from the productive to buy votes from the rest. When government gives itself the power to punish people that dare to point out that what they are doing is destructive, and worse, they know it but care little for the damage it will do to others, because their priority is their own greed and lust for power, we all lose. When I read “1984” and “Brave New World” I was naive enough to think it would never come to pass, because good people would always resist the collectivist globalist machine. Here I am now almost 4 decades later, and I feel like I live at the beginning of what lead to those worlds.

You ask why we have someone like Trump? I think the answer is clear: he is not one of the people that are part of the clique currently driving us off the cliff, even if he is a buffoon and a boor. As I have already said to one of our resident trolls: popularity doesn’t make one right. Practically always, doing the right thing results in exactly the opposite. Our world has become an upside down one, and nothing good will come from it despite the promises of the select few that live the high life and do so above the laws they use to keep us serfs in line.

Dark times are a coming..

Today, on September 11, 2016, 15 years after the worst attack on US soil, while my thoughts are with those that lost their lives and those that loved their loved ones, both on that day and in the struggle after, I want to actually deal with something I see coming that bears ill for all of us: the PC movement’s attack on freedom in general, and internet freedom in particular. Now I am sure most good people will say that there should be nothing wrong with being polite and respectful to others, especially when hiding behind the anonymity provided by the internet, and that anyone unable to do so or resisting that effort must be bad or have ill intent, but whenever I hear the PC movement run their mouths about the ills of a free internet (or opposition of the PC movement in general) all I hear or see is exactly this: those in power will silence the opposition and their political enemies.

The world is heading towards dark times as Western values are being abandoned by the most corrupt and least capable political class ever (both oh, do they think they are awesome shit). The political elite calls the masses stupid or evil because they will not let the globalists do what they want. Especially since what the globalists are doing is horrible for the common people. Oh sure, they tell us that they are doing this to help the less well off and fight injustice, but these people give absolute proof to the saying that the road to hell is paved with good intentions. Don’t take my words for this. Look at what the world looks like after 8 years of the people that tell us anyone that doesn’t share their social and ideological values and ideas of social justice being provided by them, actually is today. In short, things are worse, and it is by design. More instability, the rich got more powerful and richer – and it is no coincidence ,that the biggest promoters of social justice also are the ones that have profited the most from the misery it has caused – and the rest of us are robbed of more of our freedoms and wealth.

Unlike the old fascists and communists that actually killed of their =political enemies, the new crop of collectivists now content themselves with destroying the lives and well being of those that dare stand up against the disservice they are doing us all. I leave you with one of the most telling quotes I have ever read:

“Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.

This is known as “bad luck.”
