Category: Nanny State

Yeah, I am rubbing it in..

The other day, on one of the many threads that degenerate into people flinging poo and hoping it sticks to the wall about Trump, I made the argument that some of the people I had talked to admitted that the major reason the left is so unhinged about Trump was tied to an abject fear that after decades of abysmal and compounded failures of the implementation of a slew of progressive ideas, and the horrible turn of the last 8 years in particular, that Trump would swoop in, and be successful. Of course, the usual crowd immediately attacked me for this, pointing out that I needed to find different liberals to talk to. Some even went so far as to imply that maybe I was just making shit up. bear with me as I set this up.

Then again, I clearly remember how the left was eager to see Reagan implement his ideas, back when he won in the early eighties, expecting them to crash and burn. At the time convention was that piss poor economic performance – the stuff that later came to be known as the carter malaise – was a given. All because big government and central planning – by the ascending club of douchebag credentialed elites that went on to run western democracies today – was the only way to go forward. these smug know-it-alls where certain that the Keynesianism and massive government expansion & control were the only thing that would work, only to freak out when Reagan’s changes resulted in a huge boom and unprecedented growth. Of course, the democrat controlled congress reacted to that boom by desperately trying to control the messaging and by sending twice what they collected out of the booming economy. Reagan was forced to go along with that so he could both get his military build up (which is what spelled the demise of the USSR) and the things he knew would spur and keep continued growth.

The left learned a huge lesson from that mistake: allowing something other than their idiotic ideas to be implemented was a recipe for disaster. After Reagan, no one would ever be allowed to challenge the standard lefty dogma unopposed. The taxpayers being fleeced, and the American people in general, be damned. And they thought they had won that battle with Obama and the narrative from the DNC operatives with bylines that spent 8 years telling us we were in a great economy, one that was always just around the corner from taking off like a bat out of hell because of the genius of the credentialed elite in charge. Mountains of money were thrown at problems those elites told us they knew how to solve. When it didn’t happen, they blamed everyone else for the failures but their stupid ideas. Heck, we even had people that argued that the reason these idiotic half-baked ideas did not pan out was that not enough money had been funneled to democrat special interest, friends, operatives, and campaign coffers! And they thought enough people were lapping the shit up that despite the abysmal reality one of the most crooked and opportunistic people would end up elected to carry on that legacy. But then reality kicked them in the teeth.

As soon as Trump won, the left, already unhinged but until then wrapping their miasma in a veneer of legitimacy, went batshit crazy. Snowflakes that had been given participation trophies and had gobbled up the propaganda about the virtues of the nanny state and its supremacy, suddenly had no idea what to do with that. Like religious fanatics, assured of their dogma’s supremacy, and smug in their belief they are the smart ones because they believe the right things, suddenly getting that all challenged, these people have basically experienced an existential crisis. The urge is to deligitimize and to assure failure (like they did with Boosh too). The enemy must be defined and defeated.

So what does this have to do with my original comment at the start of this post? Well, it seems I am not alone in having those lib friends that want Trump to not succeed/ It looks like others have similar friends or are noticing that there is definitely that component of fear of success by Trump there. Nothing is more dangerous to the nanny staters than real world events which will clearly show that their ideology offers neither real answers nor solutions. Especially in this day and age where they have lost control of the messaging.

$9 Trillion in debt! WHO YOU GONNA BLAME?

Read the title of my post as a spoof on the whole Ghostbusters song – the good one from back then, not the idiotic PC reboot that Hollywood douched us with last year – because it is appropriate. The other day another old democrat crone was asked for an explanation of why the country accumulated $9 trillion plus dollars in debt with absolutely nothing to show for it (a lot of vote buying there and Hillary still lost), and Pelosi, in her grandeur, blamed Boosh. I am starting to think Boosh might be some kind of inhumane super fiend, because the guy can do everything impossible.

Let’s all sign it, baby: If the left is called out on something bad, who ya gonna blame? “George BOOSH”! Catchy…

Here we go:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi blamed former President George W. Bush and the Republicans on Friday for the more than $9 trillion that has been added to the national debt under President Obama’s watch.

Pelosi argued that under Obama, the annual budget deficit, which contributes to the national debt, has been reduced dramatically, and said that without Obama’s work, the national debt would be even higher. She also mostly blamed Bush for not paying for the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

That same old tired trope again. Obama was great for the economy! Boosh’s Wars! This crap has to be because Pelosi knows for a fact that it was Boosh that bombed the twin towers. She must also think (or want everyone to believe) that it was Boosh whom unilaterally decided to invade Iraq. Thusly, poor godsend Obama struggled to end those evil wars, by losing them, and only managed to start conflicts all over the place – because of Boosh’s mind control, according to Pelosi (or was that all because of the evil Noble Peace Prize whispering in his ear?) – destabilizing the ME and the world in the process, had to spend all that money. It could never be that congress, mostly when it was totally controlled by democrats, felt obligated – probably because of Boosh’s evil super powers, again – to spend trillions more than the broken economy the democrats left us with after their social justice home-loan lending schemes imploded, so they could engage in buying votes, enriching special interests, and fattening donkey campaign coffers.

“When President Obama stood on the steps on the Capitol eight years from next week, the [budget] deficit was $1.4 trillion — one year deficit,” she said. “It’s reduced by 70 percent in his administration. Much of the increase in the national debt that has occurred from this time still springs from two unpaid-for wars, cost that we owe our veterans following that, giveaways that they gave to the pharmaceutical industry, and the high-end tax cuts that have carried forward without any job production. Absent the work of President Obama, this national debt would be even higher.”

Pelosi has some gall. Let me point out that $1.4 trillion dollar deficit was done by the congress she ran after the 2006 election, which remind everyone overrode evil Boosh to spend that money. Those of us that understand who decides how tax payer money gets spent, and who can sign for it or veto it, that is, if they can avoid that congressional override. Based on her own words, we are left basically connecting her accusations of that money being given to fat cats, with her. But somehow it still is Boosh’s fault they did that. Then you got this:

Pelosi noted the work done by former President Bill Clinton to balance the budget or leave a surplus.

You mean the work done by Newt Gingrich, thrice before it stuck? Gingrich dragged the smarter Clinton kicking and screaming away from the leftward turn his people and that crime syndicate capo he married for political convenience had been driving us for the first 2 years of his administration, and dismantled a lot of the horribly costly and wasteful welfare state. I wonder how that expensive welfare state fared under Obama, and if that coupled with the depressing and miserable Obama economy might have more to do with?

And then we have the other shoe about to drop: Obamacare. A monster that is poised to bankrupt America, if it is not slain soon. I bet Pelosi would like us to believe that was also Boosh’s fault even though not a single republican voted for this monstrosity and Boosh was on his ranch in Texas clearing brush. This is the Obama legacy, but the tools want you to believe someone else is responsible for 8 years of amateur hour.

Lets all sing it now: If you are a democrat, and you get called out on being crooks, who ya gonna blame? “George BOOSH”! If someone points out, you fucked America over good, who ya gonna blame? “George BOOSH”!

Catchy indeed. That Boosh guy is the most powerful villain in human history I tell you..

Payback for not voting democrat!

I was wondering when the democrats would fuck over the Cuban community for not voting for Hillary, and they didn’t disappoint or wait long to hand it to them. President Nobel Peace Prize does another solid for tyrants. Of course, those in Havana love and hail the move. Remember that the policy Obama just did away with basically was put in place to help people fleeing a progressive utopia, or for those of us that live in the real world, a prison state. I guess the democrats only like the latinos that come here for the free shit and that vote for them, and this spiteful move by Obama says it all.

The Russians are coming!

The hypocrites released a report that was supposed to prove to us rubes that Trump definitely is that Manchurian candidate the suddenly anti-red democrats have been telling us now own us, and America was played into not electing the second coming – after the second coming of Black Jeebus,of course – by Gawd’s first daughter, late in the PM on Friday. Here it is. A pile of garbage, replete with conjecture and unsubstantiated/corroborated “facts”, and including this most hilarious of reasons:

The agencies believe that Putin wanted to discredit Clinton because he blames her for anti-Putin protests from 2011 and 2012.

What about this tidbit? That makes her a great friend to them IMO. Here she is selling America’s wealth to the supposed enemy for her own profit. Of course, as the libs that first tried their best to dismiss this event and now embrace it to make the desperate argument about Trump being a a Russian plant postulate, maybe she then dicked Putin later on and didn’t hold up her side of the deal, so they went after her! Or maybe, if you are inclined to actually believe that the Russians were behind this stuff, felt compelled to act, after the candidate the left told us was the only one that would not start WW3 actually said she would set up a no-fly zone in Syria that would affect another nuclear power. Oh the dilemma! Why oh why did they do it?

Me, I am more interested in why this dubious report, full of nothing but crap and lacking any substance, and obviously intended to undermine Trumps credibility, was released on a late Friday afternoon, which basically made sure the news cycle couldn’t rebut the nonsense in prime time. Recall that this tactic was and seems to remain the way this administration and the DNC operatives with bylines utilize regarding any “news item” that either hurt the left or needed to be “managed” to make it favor the left. When they had anything of substance or really felt they could use to push the news cycle to deliver the narrative, they released the content on a Monday or Tuesday, so as to give their army of operatives time to double down on the messaging.

Remember that these people couldn’t be bothered with security issues of any kind and never cared about either hacking everyone (especially American citizens and American allies) or being hacked. Clinton had an unsecured server so she could hide the Clinton foundation pay-to-play criminal activity – selling US assets, favors that hurt America and Americans, or both, for personal gain – that was hacked by everyone? Right-wing conspiracy! She only sent personal emails and stuff about her Yoga classes (as if cankles can do Yoga)! The Obama admin., didn’t just declassify that stuff because we now found out that she did have classified information that was basically stolen by intelligence agencies that opposed the US! Well, sure Obama lied about not knowing about this now that we have emails that prove they knew, but that is unimportant, because at this time “what difference does it make?” Nothing to see here, move on, said the FBI, of course, after the DOJ’s boss met with Bill and they told her that Obama would go down with cankles if they didn’t stop this investigation. Yawn! Security shmecurity! In the mean time others are languishing in jail, in court fighting charges and looking at hard time, the loss of their security clearance, and much pain, for much, much less. But the democrats could just not be bothered with the fact Hillary broke the law and compromised security!

And then we have someone doing the American people a favor and exposing the corruption of the DNC and the collusion with the DNC operatives with bylines masquerading as objective journalists to rig the electoral process, and suddenly these douchebags are all about security and the need to come down hard on the enemy! Red scare, baby! Trump is Putin’s bitch! Throw out the election results! He’s not my president! Hitler!!!!1!

What we need is more people reminding everyone that what the left really is pissed about, well other than the person the lefty intelligentsia thought was entitled to the presidency not winning and the organization as a whole being exposed as willing to cheat, steal, lie, and kill to make it so, is that someone actually revealed this to the American people. The democrats are pissed, and probably desperate to bury the fact that they are fucking lying crooks. That’s what this is all about.

OK, that was actually a good move

Everyone here knows that I have very little love for Ryan these dahys, but when he does something right, I will give him his props. From the article:

Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) on Wednesday persuaded Republicans to postpone votes on bringing back legislative earmarks until 2017 after reminding members of President-elect Donald Trump’s promise to “drain the swamp” of Washington.

House Republicans were set to hold a secret ballot on changes to their internal conference rules that would have allowed lawmakers to direct spending to projects in their districts under certain circumstances.

Based on what lawmakers were saying in the meeting, “it was likely that an earmark amendment would have passed,” according to a source in the room.
“Ultimately, the Speaker stepped in and urged that we not make this decision today,” the source said.

Behind former Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), Republicans banned earmarks after winning the House in 2010 and have stuck by that policy despite grumbling from both sides of the aisle.

I am glad Ryan put an end to this terrible, terrible idea, and very impressed he did it for the right reason. I am really, really angry that the republican establishment douche-bags thinks it is time to bring back pork barrel spending now that they are in the majority. WTF, have you not glommed that the fact so many people voted for Trump was precisely this sort of statist waste, you fucking idiots?

With the GOP now set to control both Congress and the White House next year, some Republicans are agitating for change.

Reps. John Culberson of Texas, Mike Rogers of Alabama and Tom Rooney of Florida filed an amendment to GOP rules that would ease the earmark ban by creating a new process for targeted spending.

A separate proposal by Rooney that focused more narrowly on Army Corps of Engineers projects appeared to have the votes to pass on Wednesday, several lawmakers said.

Not only no, but hell no. As was pointed out before: no matter how good the original intention of the idea – and I am not saying these people have good intentions at all, and suspect they are teeing this up this way precisely because they can get the votes from others that actually in this one case see this as a good move – it will end up abused.

Short cuts even for what some might believe to be good things, just leaves the door open for others that later come along, to do bad things, as a lot of liberals, driven psychotic because Trump inherited the government machine they just spent the last 8 years weaponizing to force thing their way, are now realizing.

Mo earmarking. Despite all the arguments that it is needed to make some thing move faster, this idiotic practice is all but guaranteed to devolve back into what it was: a machine to allow those that use that practice to collect campaign money by pushing for pork barrel spending at the tax payers expense.

Here is some advice Mr. Ryan: never let this shit come back under the “Drain the swamp” administration. if you do, I am going to assume you did that because you wanted to sabotage this move to defang the establishment.

What could have changed?

It looks like after 8 years of ignoring such things as an indiscriminate campaign of drone strikes against all sorts of shady ass-clowns or otherwise, and a massive escalation of US military “kinetic” activity that has left the Middle East on fire and in shambles, by President Nobel Peace Prize of all people, that we suddenly have a return to the good ole days where the usual scumbags that are part of one or another cabal of organizations anyone inclined to believe in apocalyptic conspiracy theories involving the one world government antichrist movement, and others like me that see it for the collectivist devil it represents, would point to. In this case it is the criminal ICC suddenly deciding that US forces are again committing war crimes. note the distinction this time around though. It is no longer the top guy, but “US Forces” that are being accused.

Battlespace prep, people. Nothing but the crooked globalists covering their collective asses. Why not the cries to get Obama, huh? Fuck em.

For the “Not my president” douchebags

Loser

Loser

BTW, read up on this, before you start spouting how it was the deplorables that elected Trump. These people voted for Obama, then saw what he did, hear how Clinton wanted to double down on the shit Obama did, and said fuck off. Of course to the left, that makes them suddenly people motivated by vile reasons…

They told me if Donald Trump was elected…

Because he was such a belligerent buffoon, he was almost certain to start WW3. Then again, news like this, coming from the Nobel Peace Prize winner’s administration, where then SecState Clinton showed her awesome diplomatic skills and “reset” the frayed relations evil warmongering Boosh so damaged with the Russians. shit, I remember the current Community Organizer in Chief and the wanna-be crime syndicate kingpin that wants to get the job mocking those that warned the reset had failed and in fact had caused relations to really sour. I guess this sort of stuff makes sense if you have the ability to see the nuance in things. At least that’s what the collectivist crime syndicate tells us rubes when we try to point out their dissonance and discorded bullshit.

I am going what I have seen from Obama. He promised to stop all the strife, heal the world, and stop the rising oceans, only to start even more wars than war mongering Boosh. Shit, he even managed to un-win both of those wars Boosh started and had all but wound down, despite the treasonous attempts by the left to make them fail. Now the Middle East is a disaster, Iraq and Afghanistan are firmly in the loose column, with Egypt (Arab spring baby!), Libya (where they went to war so a Clinton partner-in-crime could make money on oil), and Syria all turned into disastrous war zones. Iran is getting a nuke, Saudi Arabia is fighting the Iranians in Yemen, Turkey clearly is heading down the path to an Islamic dictatorship after what now looks like a clearly staged coup attempt that allowed Edrogan to purge his political enemies, and Israel is waiting for Obama to screw them one last time on the way out.

Things are not better elsewhere either. North Korea is still a huge problem. The Philippines is shifting towards China, Japan and South Korea are thinking they may need their own nukes because the US can’t be trusted (and they are right), Russia as shown above is causing trouble, and there are scores of other hot spots across the globe where a military forced to keep a ridiculously high tempo and is wearing down the people and gear it has are being told to do more with less. In fact, the world is probably in a more precarious and dangerous situation – due to lack of leadership from someone I will leave unmentioned – than it was since the Cold War. And maybe it is even worse than that. not that things are very good here at home either. Rigged primaries, rigged campaigns, cheating and lying, abuse of power and blatant banana republic legal challenges, all hidden by a complicit group of propagandists claiming to be objective.

What you didn’t know any of that? Maybe that was because of the DNC operatives with bylines now finding no reason to complain about the US being belligerent. After all, these are not really war-wars, and this strife can’t be blamed on the inept foreign policy of th last 8 years, right? Obama, and by definition both his previous and future SecStates, are doing it for peace! Not to steal oil, or avenge daddy, or whatever other stupid trope the left fed people back when. Hillary, having such a long and distinguished resume of great achievements, will fix it all!

No matter who wins this election, Americans lose. I guess the choice is between which one will do the least damage, and I that those of you thinking that will be Clinton need to lay off whatever controlled substance you are abusing.

Ask yourself why they would do something like this..

And by “this” I mean why would a law firm risk their reputation and engage in clear shady criminal behavior to donate to democrats in general, and the Clintons, in particular. From the article:

Hillary Clinton’s campaign is returning thousands of dollars in donations linked to what may be one of the largest straw-donor schemes ever uncovered.

A small law firm that has given money to Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Sen. Harry Reid, President Obama and many others is accused of improperly funneling millions of dollars into Democratic Party coffers. The program was exposed by the Center for Responsive Politics and the same team of Boston Globe investigative reporters featured in the movie “Spotlight.”

The Thornton Law Firm has just 10 partners, but dollar for dollar, it’s one of the nation’s biggest political donors, reports CBS News correspondent Tony Dokoupil.

But according to the firm’s own documents – leaked by a whistleblower — days or even hours after making these donations, partners received bonuses matching the amount they gave.

“Once the law firm knew that we had these records, they didn’t deny that this was the case,” said Scott Allen, Boston Globe’s Spotlight editor.

“If you give a donation and then somebody else reimburses you for that contribution, that is a clear violation of the spirit and the letter of the law at the state and federal levels,” Allen added.

First I want to mention that for every one of these cases of malfeasance we uncover there are, like in the case of roaches or other pests, hundreds if not thousands of others we never hear about. The democratic party is a corrupt influence peddling monopoly. I think we have so much evidence today that if you need the power of government to help you make money, from something that will be economically destructive and produces no value, you buy favors from a democrat, that this assertion is indisputable.

The democratic party may pretend that they are the party of the little people and that it is the others that are in bed with the evil oligarchy of the rich, but the facts bear out differently. When you need favors, you buy it from democrats. This reality is by design, and has enriched a ton of the worlds most corrupt people. And Clintons are not just the pinnacle of that corruption, but have positioned themselves in such a way that they are the gatekeepers of that influence peddling monopoly as well as above the law.

It is also not a coincidence that the legal profession is so predominantly skewed towards the left. sure they would like you to believe it is because they share the empathy shown on the left, but the reality, as more and more instances like this show, the legal profession depends heavily on government over regulation to make big money. And who sells better favors for them to make big money than the democrats?

Before you idiotically try to defend the Clintons, note that these Clintons have been caught repeatedly violating these laws. When it was exposed that they took foreign donations, recently revealed details show Clinton’s reaction wasn’t to shut that practice down, but to try and make sure they could keep doing it.

Think hard about the fact that the Clintons, and democrats in general, react when caught by basically counting on the DNC operatives with bylines to defend them and to keep doing more of the same. Can you imagine the level of corruption these people would reach if they were rewarded with the WH?
