Category: Things are worse than they seem

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 yet again? What difference at this point does it make?

So we now get conclusive proof that our suspicion that “the FBI investigation of EmailGate was a sham“, bears out:

From the moment the EmailGate scandal went public more than a year ago, it was obvious that the Federal Bureau of Investigation never had much enthusiasm for prosecuting Hillary Clinton or her friends. Under President Obama, the FBI grew so politicized that it became impossible for the Bureau to do its job – at least where high-ranking Democrats are concerned.

As I observed in early July, when Director James Comey announced that the FBI would not be seeking prosecution of anyone on Team Clinton over EmailGate, the Bureau had turned its back on its own traditions of floating above partisan politics in the pursuit of justice. “Malfeasance by the FBI, its bending to political winds, is a matter that should concern all Americans, regardless of their politics,” I stated, noting that it’s never a healthy turn of events in a democracy when your secret police force gets tarnished by politics.

Just how much Comey and his Bureau punted on EmailGate has become painfully obvious since then. Redacted FBI documents from that investigation, dumped on the Friday afternoon before the long Labor Day weekend, revealed that Hillary Clinton either willfully lied to the Bureau, repeatedly, about her email habits as secretary of state, or she is far too dumb to be our commander-in-chief.

Worse, the FBI completely ignored the appearance of highly classified signals intelligence in Hillary’s email, including information lifted verbatim from above-Top Secret NSA reports back in 2011. This crime, representing the worst compromise of classified information in EmailGate – that the public knows of, at least – was somehow deemed so uninteresting that nobody at the FBI bothered to ask anybody on Team Clinton about it.

This stunning omission appears highly curious to anybody versed in counterintelligence matters, not least since during Obama’s presidency, the FBI has prosecuted Americans for compromising information far less classified than what Clinton and her staff exposed on Hillary “unclassified” email server of bathroom infamy.

This week, however, we learned that there is actually no mystery at all here. The FBI was never able to get enough traction in its investigation of EmailGate to prosecute anybody since the Bureau had already granted immunity to key players in that scandal.

Granting immunity is a standard practice in investigations, and is sometimes unavoidable. Giving a pass to Bryan Pagliano, Hillary’s IT guru who set up her email and server, made some sense since he understands what happened here, technically speaking, and otherwise is a small fish. The wisdom of giving him a pass now seems debatable, though, since Pagliano has twice refused to testify before Congress about his part in EmailGate, blowing off subpoenas. Just this week the House Oversight Committee recommended that Pagliano be cited for contempt of Congress for his repeated no-shows. That vote was on strictly partisan lines, with not a single Democrat on the committee finding Pagliano’s ignoring of Congressional subpoenas to be worthy of censure.

So there you have it. It was rigged from the jump, and the reason why is obvious: this country is run by crooks and has basically become a banana republic. The law is only for the plebes. Our political aristocracy, well some people connected to the Democratic Party and those in that party holding the highest jobs, are above it all. They can do whatever they want, especially the criminal stuff, and get away with it.

There was never going to be any investigation, because it would have led to Obama’s door. The Clintons knew this. So this corrupt administration had the FBI do a Kabuki show for the plebes, and then swept the crimes under the rug. Our legal system is not to be trusted anymore. And our political class is definitely degenerated into a criminal enterprise run by a bunch of families that give the Mafia a run for their money. What as shame. I guess this is what fundamental change looks like. And don’t expect the press to cover this and feel used and disgusted because of the lies and being taken advantage off. My guess is that the press knew this was happening all along and went with it, because they only feel crimes can be committed by the political enemies of leftist ideology.

Whenever you hear a leftists preach from his or her soap box about how corrupt the other side is, remember that all they are doing is projecting. They assume because they are doing it the other side is too, or worse, they are basically fooling you into thinking that the unlawful corruption isn’t their doing. These are the people that after all feel it is more important for their ideology to win and are willing to do anything to make it so. Don’t worry though. CM will tell you they are doing great in rigged polls, so all is well and reality doesn’t matter. Dark times are a coming.

P.S. Nixon called. He wants a mulligan, cause he got screwed for far less.

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.

Fundamentally changed!

Do you think Seoul would have felt compelled to put out a statement like this one if they felt the US could be reliably trusted to make sure the crazy a-hole running the North Korean prison state held in check, and if that failed, dealt with?

This is the Obama legacy. That great statesman that was going to fix all the problems that cowboy Boosh caused by actually showing strength and telling most of the madmen of the world there would be consequences?

Note that I still felt Boosh was soft on both North Korea and Iran, and that he wasn’t particularly strong with China or Russia either, but our allies at least felt the US had their back.

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.”

― Robert A. Heinlein

I wonder why… No I don’t: it is blatantly obvious

What am I talking about this revelation, which to me is old news. I lived through a large portion of the Cold War, and I can’t remember a time that things were worse than the last almost 8 years. China and Russia have gotten ballsy for the same reason North Korea and Iran have gotten ballsy: the idiots are in charge in the only country that kept the ambitions of dictators in check.

Now the US is practically a banana republic itself. One that has been undermined from within while its enemies where given special considerations. Nobody should be surprised another fucking democrat that was lauded as the world’s savior, but which had zero credentials or real ability to do anything but organize communities (read divisive shit to scare people that have been done nothing but wrong to still vote for his failed ideas), ended up leaving the world closer to a horrible apocalyptic war. Don’t take my word for it. And yet,…

Meh, not gonna go there. These idiots know the facts are against them but reality has never gotten in the way of leftists delusions. Learn Mandarin, Cantonese, Russian and even Farsi. It might be beneficial to anyone looking to survive, albeit in servitude, after Hillary finishes the job Obama started. Me, I am arming myself even more. I might as well go out in a blaze of glory when the shit hits the fan.

The establishment has decided to make sure they win the election

I was wondering why the democrats had suffered so many hacking attacks recently by people that actually should be their fellow travelers, and after this announcement, the picture is now clear. Maybe I am a conspiracy cook, but the way things are playing out right now is too much coincidence even for me to dismiss tampering. after all, we are dealing with the most corrupt and self serving bunch of people in my lifetime, and expecting them not to do what comes natural to them, is far more of a stretch to me than the other way around.

This administration has lied, cheated, abused their power, and in general ripped off the productive to enrich the few connected and cement their power, and they now are rigging the game to make sure one of them wins so they can keep at it. As Stalin pointed out: cast votes are not as important as whomever gets to count them. And what better way to make sure the credentialed elite establishment types can make sure to get the results they want without risking too much of a chance that the plebes find out they are being played. The law is for the little people after all, as both the Obama administration and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s constant criminal activities getting a pass, has made clear.

Thanks for the banana republic Obama and the democratic party in general!
