Nixon wants his presidency back

I pity anyone that trust the legal system, especially when government is involved, today, because in the last 7 years it has gone from being a capricious and oft wrong system to one where the people in power wield it without impunity against their political enemies. The other day the WaPo had an article, full of vim and righteous indignation, finger wagging at all the people that had been vindicated by videos showing how another politicized leftist entity was not just abusing tax payers, but life itself, for profit, of all reasons.

The WaPo writer was up high on her soapbox. She wanted everyone to know that Planned Parenthood, accused of selling baby parts for profit, had been vindicated! The vindication came in the form of a stunning reversal where the people investigating the case indicting the video makers and not Planned Parenthood. In this author’s mind, this twist of faith validates their belief that the crime here was not what Planned Parenthood was doing (and based on the evidence Planned Parenthood was definitely doing this), but instead, on the fact someone had the temerity to take the lipstick off the pig. The crime that brought these indictments? Tampering with government records!

This turn of play is nothing but more of the same done by those that count on how most people have willfully or otherwise remained negligent of the rampant abuses of power by those in power, at every level of government, in the past 7 years. From a DOJ that chose and continues to only enforce the laws that favor this administration and the left in general, and even went out of its way to run a criminal scheme that amounted to an act of war in order to turn the American public against the second amendment, to a court system that flagrantly chooses to target political enemies of the state at every level, we no longer have a nation of men and laws but one so corrupt that only a fool has any faith in the judicial system today.

We had a criminal political class that allowed a US ambassador to be killed, by terrorists, in a post they knew was targeted by said terrorists to make a point. That all happened so these criminal leftist politicians could protect the left’s chances in an election, because they had decided to bank electoral points on taking center stage to declare terrorism defeated. When this shit went south, they blamed a movie maker for it in the hopes of not just deflecting blame, but to use the crisis to attack social media which remained a thorn in their side, and constantly defeated their orchestrated work with a complicit media in shaping the message in their favor. Considering these leftist morons were all instrumental in the fabrication of a lie about the previous president’s appearance on a US aircraft carrier, where he declared that carrier’s mission as a success, but they twisted that to their political advantage to pretend he was claiming total victory (the left was actively working to make sure the US lost that conflict, and Obama succeeded at doing just that), this ironic twist of faith is just beyond karmic.

It is all political advantage, every time, and every day, with these people. And they will cheat, lie, and commit any and all crimes to get their way. Ask Scott Walker whom had the democratic political machine target him and all of his supporters for doing something that helped the taxpayers of Wisconsin over the democrat money machine in the state. Ask the people targeted by the IRS for belonging to the only real enemy the left feels need to be defeated. Ask the supposed fat cats that the SEC or the DOJ prosecuted or prosecutes for what in the grand scheme of things amount to petty financial indiscretion while letting democrats like Corazine, who stole billions from hard working people, walk. Ask the taxpayers fleeced for over a billion dollars so the political left could funnel tons of money to their friends, lobbyists, and own campaign coffers. And most of all ask all the people that have been sold one lie after another by these crooks. Let’s not forget those that thought Obamacare would actually reduce cost and provide better care. Or those of us that keep paying for such collectivist vote buying schemes that span the spectrum of the lefts “caring programs”, including a broken immigration scheme that will fundamentally change America. The list goes on.

And this supposed twist in the Planned Parenthood investigation is nothing more than more of the same. See, it turns out that there is a simple reason for this twist: Planned Parenthood has insider help. And yes, that is the reason this has happened. It’s a punitive action. These people are going to be made examples, just like others that dared to point out the corruption and criminal activity.

Obama has a legacy: he has created another American banana republic.

Frosting on a turd still means you are getting a turd

Seven years of the left being in charge have devastated support for the stupid shit they believe in and do in the US, so with people turning away from them in droves, the left’s now banking on rewarding millions of criminals that jumped our borders with residency or citizenship and numerous other tax payer paid for perks. Of course, this plan is not playing well with any of the traditional democrat support groups whom correctly diagnose that it will not just cripple their economic opportunity, but make the piece of the pie available for the freeloaders much smaller. Though times, but have no fear, because because Obama has a plan to buy votes yet again. Here is the first line of the article:

President Barack Obama’s proposal for free community college tuition is either a game changer or an empty promise. It just depends who you ask.

Me, based on all the other promises these idiots have made, will go with the later: it is a heaping pile of bullshit masquerading as gourmet food. Free college is idiotic and will solve nothing. College used to be a way for those with more than the average skillset to show they met a certain bar for employment in careers that required more than just intelligence, dedication, hard work, and ingenuity. The ugly truth is that not everybody is college worthy, and we should admit so instead of pretending otherwise. The left decided that the problem to their economy bursting policies and agenda was to make everyone get a college degree, regardless if they had the aptitude, skills, or actually needed it to do what they could find as prospective employment. In the process they have completely diluted the value of a college degree and education. And they did it while dumbing down primary education to the point that too many college applicants ended up woefully unprepared and unqualified for what came next.

With the economy going south and a rigged systems letting people with no chance of completing a college degree of any worth still indebt themselves to in the end fail, the left’s solution is to make the productive pay for this burden. This is the way it used to be in Europe. I said “used to be”, because that’s no longer the case. The days of spending 6-10 years at a university studying crap that would not lead to any kind of gainful employment are over. Students now have to graduate in allotted times and they have to pay for most of their education. More importantly, they have quotas for each type of college degree. You can’t have 50K history students if there are 5K jobs waiting for them. The funny thing that bears mentioning however, is that their tax burden, which was implemented for things like free healthcare and free education, neither of which is anything resembling free anymore, remains the same. Who would have thunk it huh? All that money now goes to pay for people that sit on their ass and can’t work, a whole lot of them with 10 year college degrees in worthless fields of studies, and for a political and bureaucratic monster that adds little or no value.

So back to Obama’s free community college plan. Many people see the emperor with no clothes’ plan for what it is – nothing but a desperate attempt by democrats to both help out one of their biggest donor groups keep their house of cards from facing the reality of the times and keep the wheels on the indoctrination train – and of course, as soon as that was pointed out, the accusations, desperate and veiled tried to make it about race.

Frankly I believe that less people going to college and government getting out of the racket of subsidizing the indoctrination centers and paying off one of the democratic party’s biggest donor blocks would do wonders to improve the higher education racket. The best move they could make is to hold colleges and universities accountable for the loans incurred by the students. Students that fail out should automatically have colleges become financially liable for at least half of what they now owe in student loans. Those that graduate with degrees that only let them find employment asking people if they would like fires with that should similarly have recourse against the school that charged them an arm and a leg for what amounts to a worthless degree. Of course, something like this would spell the end of so many of the left’s specialized grievance rackets passed off as education these days. It would however help those that somehow show they are better prepared and qualified to attend college.

Spare the American tax payer of another bad and costly mistake. Tell Obama to stick to golfing and talking about how racist everyone that disagrees with him is.

Progressives and their money…

I have always held the belief that today’s modern left is simply a modern day version of the old and corrupt aristocratic members of the feudal or guild systems of the middle ages – entities that closely guarded access to the benefits that membership provided, while lording it over everyone – and amounts to nothing but a protection racket for the connected. The progressive oligarchy smartened up however, knowing that simply doing business as usual, basically maintaining and growing its power and wealth, as was done on the olden days was not going to work. So instead of risking the mob turning on them, they shifted gears, pretending to help the less fortunate, while keeping business as usual. Don’t take my word for it.

Under Black Jesus, the super-rich have accumulated wealth at a pace that would have the progressives, both in politics and in the media (yeah, I know they are practically all progressive retards there), howling mad if the WH was occupied by a guy with an (R) next to their name. This has coincided with policy shifts that have drastically grown the handout class. More people than ever are now on some form of public assistance, primarily because the economy has been castrated and employment, especially full time high paying jobs in the private sector have all but dried up, and that number only looks to grow larger. Between the insane money borrowing & printing policies that are driving up our debt at an insane pace that makes anything that came before look tame, causing drastic inflation that we keep getting told is not happening by our political masters while the dollar’s power dwindles, and the anti-business vote buying schemes and scams like Obamacare, I remain surprised at the strength of our private sector’s ability to weather this storm.

But while these progressive policies are helping the ultra-rich get richer and keep power, by expanding the “Vote for a living” class membership, the real power behind America’s exceptionalism and economic success, the middle class, is getting destroyed. Of course, the truth is that all leftists systems end like this. Look at communism for the proof. From the old USSR, Cuba, and North Korea, as examples of abject failures, to more successful entities like China, the fact is that these progressive systems are based on a 2 class system. The first is the obvious oligarchy that runs the place and has all the power and wealth. They don’t have to won it directly, but people know better. Then you have the serfs: the rest of the schnooks that are fed a constant line of populist and anti-capitalism line bullshit, do all the work – when you can get them to work for the peanuts they get paid while struggling to get basic necessities – and reap none of the rewards, unless you think a reeducation camp, a gulag, or a bullet to the head is a reward.

Socialism is not much better. Look at Venezuela or any of those Arab oil states. Sure, our resident libs love to tell us about Israel, New Zealand, or Europe, but the truth is they are doing nothing more than the progressives in the 70s and 80s did in the US writ places like New York State, Michigan, Illinois, and California. Back then the progs told us all how their policies were directly responsible for the economic growth and success these places experienced, and even if there was a nugget of truth to it, today every one of these states or fiefdoms is facing hard times and bankruptcy. Most European socialist states are unraveling as well. That’s because this shit doesn’t work. You can’t keep borrowing and pushing the responsibility to pay the debt on others, all so you can prop up a system that pretends to do what it does to help people, but rarely does anything of the sort. Collectivism doesn’t work. And there is no room for a middle class in any of these progressive systems.

So why this long rant? Well, the whole thing is a setup for another obvious instance of the left’s double standards. What else do you call the revelation that people that advocate wealth redistribution policies but then work hard to avoid them for themselves ?

Bill and Hillary Clinton have long supported an estate tax to prevent the U.S. from being dominated by inherited wealth. That doesn’t mean they want to pay it.

To reduce the tax pinch, the Clintons are using financial planning strategies befitting the top 1 percent of U.S. households in wealth. These moves, common among multimillionaires, will help shield some of their estate from the tax that now tops out at 40 percent of assets upon death.

The Clintons created residence trusts in 2010 and shifted ownership of their New York house into them in 2011, according to federal financial disclosures and local property records.

Among the tax advantages of such trusts is that any appreciation in the house’s value can happen outside their taxable estate. The move could save the Clintons hundreds of thousands of dollars in estate taxes, said David Scott Sloan, a partner at Holland & Knight LLP in Boston.

“The goal is really be thoughtful and try to build up the nontaxable estate, and that’s really what this is,” Sloan said. “You’re creating things that are going to be on the nontaxable side of the balance sheet when they die.”

The Clintons’ finances are receiving attention as Hillary Clinton tours the country promoting her book, “Hard Choices.” She said in an interview on ABC television that the couple was “dead broke” and in debt when they left the White House in early 2001. After being criticized for her comments, she told ABC’s “Good Morning America” that she understood the financial struggles of Americans

Look, I am not denying anyone the right to try and keep as much of their income as possible. But if you ever had perfect examples of the progressive movement’s bad guys, your stereotypical robber barons, it’s the Clintons. They have made a ton of money out of being politically powerful and connected, and have done so while decrying that very practice. It’s the same hypocritical shit that allows someone like Michael Moore to get stinking rich making idiotic and pedantic bullshit they pass off a serious documentary reporting, but amount to nothing more than ranting against the very system that allows him to rake in the cash. It’s despicable.

One set of rules for thee, and another for the progressive oligarchy. Now I can understand their motivations. What I don’t understand is how the people that lap up the class warfare cock these oligarchs use to maintain their grip on power and their exclusive clubs don’t see through it. At least the other such two tiered systems didn’t make any bones about the motivation of the people in power like any of the collectivist systems the progressive movement so love does.

Another class warrior caught manipulating data?

The left, including our own Right Thinking leftists, have been telling us how bad the income inequality has become, thus justifying their believe they should be allowed to play god, and providing data from the fabled class warfare book recently put out by Thomas Piketty director of the Paris School of Economics and a self avowed marxist class warrior to make the case for their wealth redistribution schemes.

Pickity’s work makes the claim that income inequality is at it’s highest level now and needs to be dealt with before things get worse. That means the left should pick winners and losers, and hammer those trying to join the ranks of the wealthy by confiscating as much of their income as possible. Note that the left always focuses on earnings, but never wants to go after the fortunes of the super wealthy which always, without exception, tend to be leftists themselves. Something has to be done! Can’t have the world be injust and all that.

But Pickity’s work has a big problem according to people that have taken a closer look, and now they are saying that the errors he made are not accidental but manipulations of the facts to make the case for the class warrior’s agenda.

Can’t say I am surprised. This is the way the left works. I can’t put my finger on it but there is another one of the pillars of the church of the envious and greedy classists that has been exposed as suffering from the same lack of scientific rigor. There too they manipulated data and conveniently lost it. Amongst other things, but tell us their conclusions are accurate and fact despite all the evidence to the contrary. If we go bye how the left reacted to that kick in the pants, I expect them to make the claim Pickety is right, regardless of what he has done, and that those that have shown he is full of it are at fault. Probably even sponsored by some special interests, while again ignoring that Pickity’s work serves to justify theft by the biggest special interest organizations on the planet: nanny state collectivist governments.

If the left produced it, question it. And yes, if the right did it, do the same. But do it on scientific grounds. Don’t let the people that tell you because it is funded by special interests it has to be lies frame the argument against science. And you can bet your ass that whatever agenda of the left it is, from undermining the 2nd amendment to pretending we need more class warfare, they will argue that the other side is funded by evil special interests. All while they are funded by the people with the deepest pockets ever: collectivist run nanny states that stand to benefit from these fabrications.

Tell the lie enough times….

Obozo was in my state yesterday stumping for money and more blue adulation to stoke his massive ego, and one of the things he praised the state for, in his speech, was the minimum wage hike the donkey controlled political machine foisted on an already abused private sector. The reality on the ground in “The People’s Republic of Connecticut” is that decades of democrat control have devastated the economy. That article is from early 2013, and things have gotten worse: much worse.

Businesses and skilled labor have been leaving the state at frightening numbers. The productive sector has been shrinking due the constant state of assault it is under by the “Tax and spend” vote buying party. If the dismal economic conditions that stupid collectivist, class warfare based, wealth redistribution scams driven, political opportunism driven have caused Connecticut were only here, one could make the argument that this comparison was unfair, but the fact of the matter is that the pattern persists throughout the major blue states that have been owned lock, stock, and barrel by the democratic party. The deeper the entrenched blue stupidity, the worse off, in practically every single aspect that matters, the place is.

The “Raise the minimum wage to help the downtrodden” cry has replaced the “It’s for the children and if you block it you hate children” bullshit the left used a while back to force people to go along with their stupid shit. It’s nothing but red meat to the envious and negative in its impact on anyone but the democrat politicians and the union bosses that would stand to profit from the automatic raise in wages, and thus union fees, tied to their minimum wage based contract. But these fucking class warriors can keep pretending that they are doing this shit because they care for the poor. What a lie.
