Banana republic it is

I speak from personal experience when I point out that when people piss off the left and members of this administration in particular, they end up being raided by the legal arm of the corrupt system. And I am sure this is done to find a way to punish anyone that dares stand up the these corrupt kleptocrats as well as set an example for anyone else that might think to stand up against the establishment’s chosen.

We have a system of law that was created by these plutocrats over decades, always pretending the idiotic laws were to help people, that now ends up making sure every single one of us is a criminal, at least 3 times a day. Most people feel fine with the bureaucratic morass that passes for a legal system, because the masters that direct that system against their enemies usually finds them not worthy of much effort, and lacking any taste of how contemptible things have become, they think the system still serves to mete out justice instead of the will of the masters. But piss off the masters, and they will show you that your assumption of having rights and constitutional protection was long ago rendered mute, and that you are at their whim, like this sap and so many others have found to be the case.

You ask why they would allow something like this to be published if they were abusing their power? The answer is simple: they not only see it as a deterrent, but they flat out believe nobody can do anything to them about it. After all, they have been pissing all over the constitution and over our freedoms for so long, setting new records of abuse over the last 7 plus years, and have not just gotten away with it, but get defended by idiots that think that not only is this fine because it is their side sticking it to the others, but because they are either naive enough to think that because they pledge allegiance to these vile and corrupt masters, they will be spared, or worse, because they hope that as everyone gets thrown to the crocodiles, they will be last.

Don’t piss off the new American aristocracy of this fundamentally transformed country, or else. When you trade your freedoms for the veneer of security or social justice, don’t end up surprised when you end up with nothing at all but an obligation to your new masters.

If you are wondering how bad our country has become

Then you are not alone. Personally, as someone that has lived in many different countries and cultures, what I am seeing is America adapting the very things that I saw were so fucked up in these other countries and cultures that held them back. This country once was the place where success, hard work, character, and especially a dream that everyone, if they applied these things to themselves had a chance, defined us as a people. People in charge, even the people in politics, which tended to never really be the cream of the crop, accomplished things. Progress was not just a word, but the way of things.

Now the country is run by an unholy alliance of a bunch of credentialed scumbags – our new American aristocracy, with all the trappings and frailties of that very system our forefathers, now abhorred because they were white men, tried to hard to make sure could never come about here and fuck things up like they had in Europe – that feel we serfs don’t deserve them because we dare to resist their massive stupidity and idiotic ideas, and the select few ultra-rich people or giant corporate entities that these credentialed scumbags have decided to favor with monopolistic powers over others. That’s how we get them pissing away tax payer dollars enriching the special interests that push ludicrous and counter productive agendas like “green whateverthecuck” or trying to sell us serves on giving up our freedoms to save Gaia from a wholly manufactured global crisis. These select ultra-rich people and corporate entities have become richer than ever, while the rest of us are barely hanging on or even heading in the other direction. And that’s by design. These people want a 2 class society with them on top and the rest of us controlled by them, like the people they admired did back in the good ole USSR, China, Cuba, North Korea, Venezuela, and other such hotbeds of collectivist delusion.

Things have gotten so bad since the collectivists took over the executive and legislative branches of government in the major campaign of delusion that happened in 2008, that we now have lived in a perpetual depression that the left pretends really is just about to end or ended, while those of us that work for a living see nothing of the sort. Through a long implemented indoctrination system that took over control of the education system, they have managed to brainwash way too many into tapping into envy and greed, allowing them to produce a class of people that feel empowered to suck at the government’s teat, allowing them to use the electoral process to buy votes with the very money they steal from the productive, and giving themselves a patina of legitimacy. And they despise the productive for not just going along .

Our government is now in the business of choosing winners & losers, and they make a pretty lucrative living doing that. It is time to go back to smaller, less intrusive, and definitely less of an elitist crowd that actually understands their job is to serve the people, not to fleece them like this criminal bunch does.

How sad things are…

Rasmussen has a poll that asked people if they bought Obama’s most recent attempt to hide the fact that under his administration the IRS conveniently targeted his political opponents right before an election, and the sad thing is that the result was that only 52% of likely US voters believe that this was highly illegal and a directed political attack. I suspect that amongst the democrat voting block there are two issues that drive this number. The first that these democrat voters are predominantly low information voters: they get their news from comedians or DNC apparatchiks like the NYT or PSMNBC, which pretend to be doing unbiased news, but are nothing but shills for the DNC. But I suspect that there is also a large block that know this was illegal and a dangerous abuse of power they would never, ever, have gone along with, but they don’t care to admit that now, because it benefited their guy and their side.

These idiots are the ones that make totalitarian systems possible. They are fine with abuses of power and law breaking as long as it is done by their guys – explained away as a necessary evil in their battle against the enemy – and never figure out that eventually they will be in the line of fire themselves until it is too late. One can forgive the low information voter. After all, stupid is as stupid does. But willfully ignoring criminal activity is another thing. And during the Obama term we sure as hell have seen some unbelievable abuses of power. From this IRS scandal to the things going on in the ME (Benghazi. Iran deal, and more), to the attack on Walker Hal posted about, these people have shown they operate like a criminal syndicate. And we as a country are all suffering for it. When the rule of law crumbles as it is doing now, sooner than later, you will get those that decide to take the law into their own hands.

Protectors of the little people, indeed….

As someone that lives in a blue state and has seen the hypocrisy of the collectivist that pretend to do the shit they do to protect the little people from the “evil Korporashuns and their desire to actually serve shareholders over acting as bank accounts for social justice warriors” and the “evil wealthy that never pay enough taxes”, I am not surprised to find out that the truth is quite different:

Attorney General Martha Coakley, charged with protecting ratepayers against utility company price gouging, held two gubernatorial campaign fundraisers hosted by National Grid’s lobbyist this year and accepted donations from the utility’s top executives right before they socked it to ratepayers with big hikes in electric bills.

Records show National Grid’s Massachusetts president, Marcy Reed, handed over a $500 check to Coakley’s cash-strapped gubernatorial campaign on Sept. 22, just one day before the Department of Public Utilities approved a 37 percent rate hike.

Three other National Grid executives also donated to Coakley on Sept. 22, according to campaign finance records. And last week, just after the AG wrote a mildly worded letter asking National Grid to delay its rate increase, she accepted donations totaling $1,000 from National Grid’s executive director, Thomas King, and two other high-ranking executives.

National Grid’s federal lobbying firm, Kearney, Donovan & McGee, was reimbursed two different times by Coakley’s campaign, including once this month, for “venue and catering” expenses for two apparent fundraisers at its Boston office.

The donations came as Coakley’s campaign has been scrambling for cash to pay for last-minute TV ads and make up for a significant fundraising shortfall compared to GOP rival Charlie Baker.

Yeah, well the fact is that this happens all the time with these class and social justice warriors. And if you are observant, you will notice that the louder the social justice cum class warriors cry about the injustices of the other side, the more likely it is that you are dealing with projection issues. We in the People’s Republic of Connecticut have seen the same crap.

My rates have gone up by insane numbers the last year, mostly because of the impact of green energy bullshit projects on available power, but also because the class & social justice warriors are in bed with these mega corps (especially when they have monopolies). Then again, so has my health care costs (thanks Obamacare!), tax burden (especially my state taxes that all seem to be pissed away on vote buying projects while the infrastructure the taxes are supposed to be supporting is crumbling), cost of living (there is no inflation except for the fact that the basic stuff all costs a lot more these days and keeps getting pricier), and many such other things that hurt the little people far worse than they do someone like me that has the ability to earn good money, and it is happening because the class & social justice warriors say one thing but practically always do the opposite.

Connecticut’s economy – and for all intents and purposes that of every deep blue state out there, without exception – is imploding at a record pace precisely because of stuff like this. The response by the class and social justice warriors, especially in the blue states, is always to appeal to the jealousy, greed, and envy of those that vote for a living, to push for higher taxes, all so they can use whatever revenue they don’t outright pocket, to keep buying votes from the very people that get crushed by their idiotic policies. Grow the dependent base under the pretense of doing things to help them, and you can keep perpetual power, is the new mantra of the left, I guess. In the meantime the productive flee for better climes (my day is coming), and things keep getting worse.

Even about this they lied..

It looks like that Obamacare “built in” cushion that was supposed to protect those not making so much from getting raked over the coals by a government mandate they purchase healthcare, whether they could afford it or not, isn’t as reliable as the donkeys that sold it made it out to be. In fact, if you look at the new speculative numbers as shown below:

A significant benefit of the Affordable Care Act is the opportunity to receive money-saving tax credits up front to cut the overall cost of health insurance, but now hundreds of thousands of consumers could owe back some of that money next April.

Those affected took advance payments of the premium tax credit for health insurance. Some married couples could owe $600 or $1,500 or $2,500 or even more. It might feel like a raw deal for some who are already suffocating under the escalating costs of health insurance.

“Health insurance is confusing enough, and now they’re adding the complexities of the Tax Code,” said Lorena Bencsik, a member of the Michigan Association of CPAs and owner of Prime Numbers in Ferndale.

When you file that 2014 tax return next year, the Internal Revenue Service will compare your actual income for the year with the amount you estimated when applying for exchange-based health insurance under the health insurance law.

It looks like the people least likely to afford this shit are about to get slammed with more costs than they could have expected. Of course, to people like me that live in the real world and not in liberal fantasy land, this was blatantly obvious. When the gangsters told you fools that they were “fixing healthcare”, making the thing affordable, accessible, and free, and all while reducing the deficit spending, those of us that can smell bullshit pointed that out, only to be rebuffed by people that want to live in fucking Candyland.

The article goes on to pretend that the issue is with life changes. Well duh! Did anyone not foresee this scenario? The advice? Report everything to the government about your life, and do so ASAP! Because after all, this government hasn’t shown any kind of propensity for abuse of power and a penchant to go after those it considers political enemies. Yeah, real sweet “free shit” deal there bozos. More intrusive government for crappy healthcare. What a trade off.

Another preview of Obamacare?

look at what the Obama administration is doing to medical professionals that warn about issues with illegal immigrants:

A government-contracted security force threatened to arrest doctors and nurses if they divulged any information about the contagion threat at a refugee camp housing illegal alien children at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas, sources say.

This is yet another example of what to expect from progressive healthcare. I am not kidding. The criminals in the Obama administration and the people they send out to do their dirty work have shown us, numerous times, that they aren’t just above the law, but that they have no compunction of abusing the law to force behavior they want. Lucky for us we have found out about these shenanigans, but that is because:

In spite of the threat, several former camp workers broke their confidentiality agreements and shared exclusive details with me about the dangerous conditions at the camp. They said taxpayers deserve to know about the contagious diseases and the risks the children pose to Americans. I have agreed to not to disclose their identities because they fear retaliation and prosecution.

Don’t worry. They will be punished for doing so. This administration is good at that. Aren’t we lucky?

If we can’t outright disolve it, this works

It looks like many others are figuring out that the checks and balances of our constitutional republic have been broken down by the rise of the nanny state, and in particular, the problems that this new fourth power branch – the unelected and unaccountable government bureaucrat – cause to our rights and freedoms are being shown by the abuse of power rampant through the Obama administration. In particular, we have the most powerful entity in the US, the IRS, targeting political opponents of the left. While the powers that be are doing their best to stall any information on how corrupt government has become under this administration, some see the danger and articulate solutions. Their proposed solution is an interesting one. From the article:

In America’s first 100 years, federal officials could be sued in state courts for acting beyond their authority. In his book Creating the Administrative Constitution, Yale law professor Jerry Mashaw chronicles how this helped temper bad behavior.

Law professor Glenn Reynolds over at Instapundit is among those who believe that government officials need more civil and criminal liability for their bad acts. There are some private remedies on the books, but they are too weak to be effective.

While I would prefer the IRS just be banned and everyone be made to pay a flat tax – a goal I doubt the nanny state would ever accede to because it would be the proverbial stake to the heart, followed by a beheading, and then the vampire corpse of the nanny state being burned to ashes, I think leaving the status quo is not an option for those of us that see this problem. This proposed legal solution might work, of course if we had a judicial system that was not already seriously compromised by the existing nanny state, to at least stem this out of control snowball effect we have right now, and that’s a good thing.

I remember many a conversation with smug leftists that told me they wanted to protect freedoms and rights back when. What’s happening now vindicates my dismissal of their claims. The left has never wanted to protect people’s freedoms or rights: it has wanted to rig the system to its favor, and has done so by choosing battles that allowed it to undermine the existing system of checks and balances. The things happening in this age of Obama are all just steps in the natural progression of the progressive agenda. In the end you will find yourself living in a totalitarian system, with an all-powerful state, run by an elite oligarchy, with the rest of the people treated as serfs. We are at a turning point. We roll this shit back, or we kiss our freedoms and prosperity goodbye.

Reign in the nanny state.

These people want to handle your medical records and decisions

Another congressional hearing, and the IRS rep is again lying through his teeth. If you ask me what the greatest talent of the Obama administration’s members is, I will have to say it is engaging in any kind of criminal activity and then lying about it. These people apparently can’t have one of the organizations that holds the power to destroy every citizen’s life hold on to basic information, yet this agency demands we tax payers be able to produce any information they request or face drastic consequences. That’s not irony, but something far worse.

And as the title of my post points out, these are the kind of people the progressives tell us should not only control the healthcare system, basically holding stewardship of our medical information, but have the power over life and death decisions. Because, you know, evil private corporations make profits. Yeah, and petty partisan bureaucrats with delusions of grandeur and a political agenda won’t abuse their power, like those at the IRS, the DOJ, the EPA, and any other entity you can name under the Obama administration, have been doing causing harm that these private entities would only have dreamed of being able to get away with. Nothing to worry about, people.

I am hoping that the call for the IRS to be abolished actually pan out, just like I hope Americans get a real break and Obamacare gets punted. Collectivism is a cancer on humanity.

Watergate had nothing on this..

I am now convinced Nixon’s crime was to be a republican. We are now getting told by the Obama administration’s IRS cronies that we can’t get Lerner’s emails, because, not only did the PC she used crash and lose her local copy, but they then formatted that hard drive and gave it to somebody else.

Ex-IRS official Lois Lerner’s crashed hard drive has been recycled, making it likely the lost emails of the lightening rod in the tea party targeting controversy will never be found, according to multiple sources.

“We’ve been informed that the hard drive has been thrown away,” Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, the top Republican on the Finance Committee, said in a brief hallway interview. Two additional sources told POLITICO the same late Wednesday, citing IRS officials.

It may just be standard government procedure, but the revelation is significant because some lawmakers and observers thought there was a way that tech experts could revive Lerner’s emails after they were washed away in a computer crash in the summer of 2011. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), for example, subpoenaed her damaged hard drive earlier this week, when he asked for “all hard drives, external drives, thumb drives and computers” and “all electronic communication devices the IRS issued to Lois G. Lerner.”

“IT experts have weighed in and said yes — we can get those” emails, said Rep. Charles Boustany (R-La.) earlier Wednesday.

The latest news suggests such professionals may never get the chance to try again — and the IRS has even said its criminal investigators who specialize in rebuilding hard drives to recover hidden information from criminals were unable to restore the data back in 2011. But this is only likely to further enrage Republicans, who are fuming over the matter and suspect Washington officials drove the selective scrutiny.

Sure, I buy into the nonsense that an organization awash with tax payer money to waste that spends hundreds of thousands on fluff bullshit (remember those training videos?) like the IRS has to recycle a hard drive that’s at least 2 year old after it crashes. Sounds like a sold move without any risk of it blowing up again. How convenient! I am sure the same problem occurred with the other people whose emails also mysteriously have vanished because of some mechanical failure. It’s just a coincidence that the people that have mechanical failures at the IRS are the ones under investigation. I still ask where the backups are. I bet that we will find out that the dog ate the tape drives or they stored that stuff on the cloud and it rained, causing them to lose it!

Can you imagine the reaction from the left if they had caught the Boosh administration using some government agency, let alone one as powerful as the IRS, to target their political enemies, only to be told they couldn’t get a look at the evidence from the major perpetrators under investigation, because all the people involved suffered mechanical failures, of one sort or another, and that the storage for the evidence was then recycled/destroyed? Do you think the LSM would be mute like it is now about this revelation, or would be getting demands for answers? I guess the Pulitzer prize doesn’t hold as much sway in the DNC propagandist community it once had. Or maybe it is just, as I pointed out at the start of this post, that Nixon’s crime was to be a republican.


Now I am certain the WH was behind the IRS attacks

I am with Glenn H. Reynolds, whom I think hits the IRS scandal nail right on the head when he points out there is no way the WH was not involved. After revelations that Lois Lerner isn’t the only one whose emails the IRS has lost, there are 6 other people being investigated and all their emails conveniently have gone missing too, I can’t help but conclude this is deliberate.

We already know they have computer backups, even at the IRS which being a government entity conceivably is plagued by the fact nothing is too terrible for government work, so at a minimum this lost email nonsense amounts to stalling the ongoing investigation until after this or some other election. But considering the corruption and down right criminal nature of the left, and especially the members of this administration, I believe this is something far more nefarious that’s going on. They got caught. This WH directed the IRS to give the FBI confidential information so they could then attack political enemies. If it ended there things would already be horribly wrong, but there is more. Our media is helping the crooks cover up instead of telling the American people the truth. Worse yet, this is the story we know of. How many others are out there? How many people have been brought low by our own government agencies under command from the crooks that promised us better?

And yes, these are the fucking idiots that the left feel should run our healthcare. I can’t wait to be told by some asshole bureaucrat with delusions of grandeur that my records have been lost, and so, I am going to just buck up and die. That’s then followed by a smirk and a comment about how I didn’t lick my progressive betters’ fucking cocks with enough gusto. This is the future the left wants for all of us. Remember that whenever they tell you they care.

In the mean time Nixon says he wants to un-resign! If these fucks can actually do what he only asked for and get away with it, then he made a huge mistake caving in. Our media is disgusting. They are more than content to provide cover for these criminals, and are proud of helping fuck us all over.
