7a1d7a36c49cd83ef069460b8bf7a0c9Today (10/23/2015), the Department of Justice announced (after two years) that their investigation of the targeting of conservatives by the IRS has been closed. The results of the investigation? Nothing. Lois Lerner, the main instigator and manager of the targeting gets off scott-free to enjoy her pension and retirement. Nobody under Lerner faces any consequences. Nothing will be done concerning this organized criminal activity within the IRS that took place over at least a two year period (2010 through 2012).

The left (politicians, bureaucrats, activists, media, and rank and file) did a fantastic job of managing and taking advantage of this… crises.

  1. First they hid (and probably destroyed) as much of the evidence as they could (mostly email of course)
  2. Then they did a shell game as to who was to blame… rogue agents in an distant office…
  3. Then nobody was to blame… the instructions were just too obscure…
  4. Then there wasn’t really a scandal… liberal groups were targeted just as much… (a lie by the way)
  5. And finally (the coup de grace) the Republicans were to blame… it was just another witch hunt from the beginning…

To be honest this shouldn’t come as a surprise. Enough time has passed; enough smoke blown up the collective posteriors of the people, so that the Feds are now comfortable to sweep this thing under the rug and be done with it.

We unfortunately live in a law-less age; more so under the Obama administration than ever before. The Constitution? The rule of law? Equal application of the law? Thrown out the window by the fascist left and those who support them. The bureaucrats at the IRS suit up in their (figurative) brown shirts and do the lefts bidding (obviously with impunity). The media turns a blind eye to the abuse or worse pushes misinformation and propaganda. And once exposed (not by the media but the persecuted themselves), the Department of Justice picks up the ball and makes sure nothing ever comes of it. Two years later… MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

This does not bode well for any accountability of Hillary Clinton concerning her email server fiasco (as if we ever expected any). As for the lefts response? It’s deja vu all over again. We see the same same responses in the same order by all involved. Destroyed evidence, shell games of blame, no real crime was committed, everybody did it, and (we’re at the next to last phase now) it’s a Republican witch hunt. The last phase will be the FBI finally announcing “nothing to see here”.

Boot - Face - 19841984 is alive and well where titles and monikers mean their exact opposite. In 1984 we had War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength, Ministry of Information. Today it’s the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation? Neither provide either.

“If you want a vision of the future imagine a boot stamping on a human face – forever” — George Orwell (1984) … and thanks to the Department of Justice getting away with it.

But always — do not forget this, Winston — always there will be the intoxication of power, constantly increasing and constantly growing subtler. Always, at every moment, there will be the thrill of victory, the sensation of trampling on an enemy who is helpless. If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face — forever. — George Orwell (1984)

We control life, Winston, at all its levels. You are imagining that there is something called human nature which will be outraged by what we do and will turn against us. But we create human nature. Men are infinitely malleable. — George Orwell (1984)

Obama - Dictator - 1984


King - PoopThe new leftist mayor of New York, Bill de Blasio, recently came up with a 62 point safe street initiative; an aggressive plan to curb traffic accidents and deaths in the Big Apple. He personally shot a public service announcement announcing the crackdown. That public announcement included the words “We’ve put a very bold plan before you, and we want the public to know we are holding ourselves to this standard.”

And a day or two later… de Blasio is seen in his (chauffeured) car totally ignoring New York traffic laws. His cars (two in the caravan) routinely were documented speeding (sometimes 20 or 30 mph over the limit), blowing through stop signs, and breaking all kinds of traffic laws. The reporter who documented all this noted enough infractions that the driver’s license would have been legally suspended had he actually been held accountable.

When the mayor finally commented on the incident, he took a page from his President and threw his driver and the NY Police Department under the bus. It seems the police are in charge of his transportation and he was just an innocent passenger, begging them to obey the law the whole time. His response is, of course, bull shit; but more than that its royalty dismissing out-of-hand a petty concern of his subjects.

The issue here isn’t the ignoring of the law so much as the prevailing attitude among many the elites in government, Hollywood, and the ultra-rich.

Movie - Monty Python Holy Grail - Peasants

When de Blazio comes up with new rules and laws concerning how you should drive in New York… those restrictions are meant for YOU, the little people, the serfs. It never occurred to the mayor or anyone in his organization that those rules or laws would ever apply to him. Even when his own words in the announcement said “we are holding ourselves to this standard”, thinking those words had meaning would be ludicrous. It’s the mind-set of these jerks.

And I don’t want to just pick on the mayor of New York here. This is a common belief system among the elites.

People - Gore, Al - Nobel PrizeWhen Al Gore says you need to reduce your carbon footprint. He doesn’t include himself in that. He’s too important. He’s the exception… along with every other elite prick pushing global warming. Jets, mansions, limousines? At best they offset that by buying carbon credits from one of Al’s companies; Al paying Al for permission to do as he pleases. What it really comes down to is; it’s us little people who must pay and obey.

When Obama and the Democrats pushed Obamacare on us; it was under the guise of providing for the little people. And while it’s true the law does give subsidies to the poor… what is says to the middle class is “buy this crap or pay a fine”. Again, it’s the serfs who must obey. When Congress realized they forgot to exclude themselves or their employees they threw a hissy fit about a “brain drain”. Their solution? Have the bureaucrats declare “Oh, the law doesn’t apply to you guys after all”. And why should it? As if they were serfs like the rest of us.

Foreign diplomats and United Nations guys get a pass on certain U.S. laws? Understandable in theory; we don’t want our guys harassed over there. It’s a quid pro quo; except the practice is heavily abused. Why? They’re not like us. They’re not serfs.

The IRS screwing the tea party guys in coordination with the ATF, Justice Department and other government agencies is partly due to the attitude of those pulling the strings saying “Who do these serfs think they are? We’ll show them their proper place…”

The list of abuses goes on and on and on… Eventually (one would hope) the serfs have to say, enough is enough. The concept of the rule of law must be reborn in the psyche of this nation. Laws must apply to everyone… even these elites. Accountability must be brought to bear. But the system is so screwed up that law and accountability are out the window… probably irreversibly.

Secular HumanismEmbracing Secularism by Those Who Should Know Better:
It’s amazing how people who have lived under and have even overcome the hell of abject communism and/or socialism still find a way to cling to the foundation of secular philosophy that makes them possible.

At the latest World Summit of 2013, Lech Walesa (Nobel peace laureate) spoke to a summit of Nobel Peace Prize winners at Warsaw. There he called for a new “secular Ten Commandments”; the purpose of which would be to underpin (worldly) universal values.

“We need to agree on common values for all religions as soon as possible, a kind of secular Ten Commandments on which we will build the world of tomorrow.” – Lech Walesa

Mr. Walesa also thinks we need to globally define the economy of tomorrow “that’s definitely neither communism nor capitalism as we have it today.”

So what would this “new” social and economic system be called exactly? Socialism? Walesaism? Any details on how this “new” system will work and how it bring humanity together?

All this leftist intellectual crap is absurd and frankly stupid; but what would you expect from anyone who attends or give any credence to the “World Summit”.

Absurdity:
“Common values for all religions”? The very idea is, to be frank, incredibly naive and stupid. How exactly does one get religions to adopt these new common, secular, worldly values? Christians are warned repeatedly NOT to do that very thing. I can only guess at what practitioners of other religions think of the concept. How open to this idea would the followers of Muhammad be? I say start with those guys first and see how it goes. 🙂

And the concept of secular moral commandments is itself an exercise in abstraction. The very idea behind the Ten Commandments rests upon a higher authority; one that gives the commands as universal truth and a foundation upon which to build a stable society. If there is no higher authority, the commandments don’t mean anything nor does the implied foundation exist.

Secular Commandments? Commanded by who? The world? The United Nations? Mankind? If anything, morals as defined by secular men are as relative and shifting as a foundation of sand. So I’m guessing this would be a “living document” kind of thing? A set of commandments that constantly shift as our culture evolves (progressively of course). Sound familiar?

Leftist Utopia:
This is all leftist utopian bullshit. Like communism, socialism, and Obama riding unicorns; it all looks good on paper, it all sounds dreamy in a speech. In practice it is insidious. We know where this stuff leads. It has led us there before at the cost of millions of lives and it can and likely will do so again. There is after all nothing new under the sun.

Unfortunately Lech Walesa is advocating that we move to a system that we already have. Secularism and moral relativism is the very definition of our society and the direction we continue to slouch towards. Walesa and those who share his view just want to put something down on paper to make themselves feel better about that direction; as if there were a plan.

The First Three:
Humoring the left… I wonder what the Ten Secular Commandments would look like? I can think of the obvious first three right off the bat.

1) WAR IS PEACE
2) FREEDOM IS SLAVERY
3) IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH

There you go… just seven more.

Talk about taking another page out of 1984… Barak Obama’s new envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference, Rashad Hussain, was quoted back in 2004 as saying the criminal case against Al-Arian (convicted of supporting the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorist group) was one of a series of “politically motivated persecutions” and asserted that Al-Arian was being “used politically to squash dissent.” He now of course denies ever saying such an outlandish thing.

So how do we know he said it? He was quoted in an article in the magazine Washington Report on Middle East Affairs (WRMEA). But wait; if we read the web version of the article that once contained these quotes; the quotes are gone! Why? No one at WRMEA knows. The web master thinks it happened around Feb. 2009 and the WRMEA editor, Delinda Hanley, says it was because the quotes really belonged to Al-Arian’s daughter (also at the event) and that the reporter, realizing the mistake, had asked for them to be removed. Ahhhh… just correcting the record… very noble and professional.

While Laila Al-Arian (the terrorist’s daughter), seems willing to crawl under the bus for Hussain and Obama, the reporter (also working for the Obama administration) isn’t so willing to go quietly into the asphalt.

“When I worked as a reporter, I understood how important it was to quote the right person, and accurately,” Shereen Kandil wrote in response to an e-mailed query from POLITICO asking about the possibility of a misquotation.

“I have never mixed my sources and wouldn’t have quoted Rashad Hussain if it came from Laila Al-Arian. If the editors from WRMEA felt they wanted to remove Rashad Hussain from the article, my assumption is that they did it for reasons other than what you’re saying.”

Told that the reporter had repudiated her claims, WRMEA editor Hanley, said something to the effect of “hamana-hamana-hamana… whoop whoop whoop whoop…”

It looks like Obama and his lackeys in the media have a little work to do in their quest to perfect the “memory hole“. They might want to start with making sure everyone is willing to tell the same lie when they’re caught.

Just in case you’re wondering; yes, Obama still thinks you are as dumb as dirt. With ten plus percent unemployment; with layoffs announced weekly/monthly; with higher bankruptcies, with home foreclosures continuing… Obama is happy to announce that his $787,000,000,000 porkulus package has “already created or saved up to 2 million jobs.”

Christina Romer, mouthpieces for this crap said, “That’s truly a stunning and important effect. It has done exactly what we have anticipated it would do….We are very much tracking what we anticipated.” This simply means that soon she and Obama will expect you to swallow that another 1.5 million jobs have been “saved or created” on top of this 2 million just announced. Why? Because Obama said earlier that 3.5 million would be “saved or created” overall; and that number will be reached no matter the statistical and/or mental contortions required.

In George Orwell’s classic 1984; the government of Big Brother would release announcements within hours of each other that were in direct contradiction to each other. There was never an explanation for the contradiction; it was understood by all that the original announcement never happened. Absolute photographic proof that the government was lying, held in the hand of protagonist, Winston Smith, meant nothing. Well actually, Winston’s belief in his own eyes and reasoning over the government propaganda; meant he was guilty of thought crime, but that’s another part of the story.

Obama expects nothing less than this sort of suspension of reasoning from his party and from his serfs. Ignore the facts, ignore what your reasoning tells you, ignore that I have set up a totally subjective system to prove my points and declare them facts. I have said it… it is your truth.

More truths you might expect to be handed down from upon high besides Obama having saved or created 2 million jobs… The unemployment rate has dropped to 10% and continues its steady decline since Obama took office… New hiring in green energy jobs have hit an all time high; training people to meet the demand for these high paying jobs is going on across the country (just not where you are, yet)… We have to pass health care reform quickly even through it doesn’t go into effect for years… Global warming is destroying the planet, we need cap and trade taxes now… The auto industry went bust because they didn’t build energy efficient tin cans the public clamors for…

For now, Obama and the liberals are content that the party and you the populace will simply ignore the contradictions and out-and-out lies. Having near complete control over the news media; they at least know their “facts” will never be challenged. However, they may eventually expect us to take it a step further as Big Brother did.

It was not enough for Winston to know the government was lying and ignore it. Big Bother demanded complete obedience. Winston had to train his mind to re-arrange and dispose of inconvenient facts; so that in the end the only reality was that dictated by Big Brother at that moment; no other possibility existed.

“We are at war with Eurasia. We have always been at war with Eurasia…. he (Winston) had won the victory over himself. He loved Big Brother”.
