Illusions of Control Continue

After stewing on the American situation over the weekend, Og nailed it yesterday, with The illusion of control.With the agents of a shadow empire occupying every institution in our republic, simply voting is not going to get our posterity out of the fix we've gifted them.

Speaking of gifts, today Pat Condell (with his God-given atheist gift) very clearly enunciated  the situation in Europe. Well, except for at the very end (hence the title of my post). Watch for it. (hat tip: Gates of Vienna)



Actually, what Mr. Condell describes is really being mirrored all over what is formally known as the West. He thinks the EU nations can somehow still vote themselves out of it. That's because he's replaced faith in God with (in his own words) faith in Democracy.
"When people stop believing in God, they don't believe in nothing — they believe in anything." -- G.K. Chesterton.
Ah what fools these mortals be.

It's the Statism Stupid, Coming To Pass

The drum beat begins. Over the last few days there have been calls from the Left for Obama to step down as Harry Truman and LBJ did before him.

I've said it often, most recently in early September with It's the Statism Stupid, that the Right has been running a terrible, non-conservative risk by focusing all its concerns on Obama. By not putting the focus on the Democratic Party's Statist agenda, the risk was always there that the Left would seek to remove Obama from the running one way or the other.

Now the Left is blaming Obama for inconsequence and lack of vision and follow-through (Pat Caddell), and incompetence (Chris Matthews). More are sure to follow. They want a fresh leader to push their agenda forward. They are envisioning that leader to be Hillary. She is now with an unprecedented 69% approval rating. Oh, Oh -- and the GOP seems to have been helping her every way they can too. I just love its judgment as proven by its choices of venues for the debates, don't you? /s

Gee, who could have seen this coming? /s

So now we're told that we may be faced with another Democrat Statist running for President come November of the next year, you still think Romney is a real alternative? Why should conservatives give up to the SKUNCs in the GOP? Because they'll tell us that the independents won't buy a real conservative? Stand by your convictions and insist on giving the independents a not very difficult choice.
"Do you want a real conservative or another rotten Alinksyite?"
Dammit folks, both Obama and Hillary are Alinsky radicals! Make the case that any Dem would be as bad as a second Obama term. And make the case to those voting in the primaries: A soft Left-leaning pubbie, even if elected, will only be a caretaker president until the Dems take over or the country collapses.

Those same fools or Quislings in the GOP and punditry would have insisted on offering George H W Bush to the independents in 1980 instead of Reagan. (And there would have been no Reagan Democrats.) This country and the world would have had lost then too if we listened to the SKUNCs then instead of following our convictions. Get some nads you wimps.
 
I don't know who of the current crop of candidates is a good choice. We need a cultural Churchill to come out of obscurity or something. Most of all, we need help. You know Where to ask for it.

Are You Sensing the Pattern Yet?

Spotted at PJMedia: Spaniards Set to Throw Out Ruling Socialists.

Sounds quite like what Kiwis did when putting the Nats in power, doesn’t it? Or the French when electing Sarkozy to run France; and the Brits letting Cameron lead the UK.

Where would we be, what would we do, without the MSM Agency of Lies (and their lackey blogs) informing us who are the champions of the Right?

The true meaning of “The Third Way” will still probably not be realized by the majority when the whole of what was once known as “The West” finds itself in chains.

A Moment for Consistency

Now consider this.
Premise:
  • Jon Corzine had been a buddy with Dick Cheney instead of Joe Biden, and a crony of Bush instead of Obama.
Consequence:
  • Select members of the MSM Agency of Lies would be referring to Jon Corzini.
Because the AoL continues its imbalance and partisanship, and because the Republican Party hates its base more than it hates Obama, the duty falls to the common man to call out discrepancies so that all might hear it.

Convey facts with persistence, ablate cognitive dissonance.

Two Followups

First off, as a followup to Shock: ABC Consistently Inconsistent. Verum Serum posted a video Occupy San Diego Has A Moment of Solidarity for the White House Shooter. This, too, will most certainly be ignored by ABC "News" as well as the rest of the Agency of Lies (puppettedly also known as the MSM). It does not fit the Obama White House narrative, so forget widespread coverage. (I pray each day that the ostriches in my wider family will see some of this and finally work with me).

Secondly, as a followup to Will Mark Levin Ask Newt My Two AGWF Questions?, let me first summarize what transpired beginning at 1:42:40 of Mr. Levin's 11/16/11 podcast.
  1. Right out the gate, Mr. Levin asked Mr. Gingrich "Global Warming: Yes, no, or you don't know?" But IMO it was the wrong question by not being specific. It weakened all followup questions.
  2. As a result Newt skated away evasively by making Cap and Trade the issue he addressed. And he interrupted Mr. Levin's attempt to prod with a sharp-edged follow up!
  3. Mr. Levin ended his Wednesday show with this interview. He profusely apologized for running out of time. But he had also said, early in the show, that he planned it that way. Huh?
  4. I do not wish to impugn Mr. Levin's integrity, but whatever is the truth about this show I continue to feel like it was too staged. And worse: staged for the benefit of darker forces. The interview cast little light but I can assure you that he raised my heat.
The current issue is that EPA declared on its own that carbon dioxide is a pollutant. That decision is of monumental importance due to the mountainous regulations and restrictions imposed by the EPA. Such a decision is arguably constitutionally lawless.

An assertion of such consequence and magnitude while also being highly controversial (despite Al Gore's royal sounding infamous assertion that "the discussion is over") is thus political.

Political issues are supposed to be hashed out in Congress, not by the executive branch and its agencies, and not by the judiciary.

The problem with providing an opening for Mr. Gingrich to focus his commentary on Cap and Trade is that Cap and Trade is currently a dead issue. It was killed even by a veto proof Democratically controlled congress in 2010 before the elections that brought us Republican "control" of the House of Representatives.

Shock: ABC Consistently Inconsistent

 ABC News reports
"police say Ortega [DC shooting suspect] may have spent time blending in with Occupy D.C. protesters." [italics added]
 This is the same MSM that immediately blamed Jared Loughner on the TEA Party despite that Leftist nutcase having not attended a single TEA Party rally nor having any other connection to any TEA Party.

For that matter, Diane Sawyer, also of ABC News, is still doing it.
"And you may remember Sarah Palin targeted her [Gabby Giffords] district with an ad that had a gun sight on it." -- on  20/20 aired Nov 14, 2011

The Statist propaganda mills (Agency of Lies) are beyond shameless dear readers. Pass this one along to your brothers. Pass this along to your lib neighbors if for nothing else than to simply to remind you of their cognitive dissonance and ostrich-like tendencies.

Will Mark Levin Ask Newt My Two AGWF Questions?

Mark Levin has Newt Gingrich scheduled on his radio talk show Wednesday (tomorrow). [And here is my followup to what actually transpired.] I'm craving to hear Newt forced to answer the following.

Mr. Gringrich: 
  1. Do You Think CO2 Is a Pollutant? [and if he says "no," then followup with]
  2. How do you plan on ending EPA's insistence that it is?
Does Mr. Levin have the nads? Or is he just another patriotic poseur who writes books that sound so patriotic? I imagine I am not the only one tired of the BS that frustrates conservatives world wide.

Update:
And assuming  Mr. Gingrich says he'll rein in EPA, we'd like him to swear it's not the lie that this was. (hat tip to TrueblueNZ)

Do You Think CO2 Is a Pollutant Newt?

Yes, I know that Mr. Gingrich declared that "the dumbest thing I've done in the last couple of years was sitting on a couch with Nancy Pelosi." But he evaded answering the AGWF questions that have caused so much uncertainty and closing down, through extensive and unsound bureaucratic rules, businesses that produce and use energy.

The questions I most want to hear Mr. Gringrich answer in tonight's debate: 
  1. Do You Think CO2 Is a Pollutant?
  2. How do you plan on ending EPA's insistence that it is?

The Original Los Angeles Oddity

Los Angeles is known for a legion of oddities. There is no certainty all this weird behavior is symptomatic of life in the State of California as whole. Though they could be, it is more likely that just the man-caused variety are the products of this locale. For close to a century L.A. has been forging new oddities and releasing them on unsuspecting and decent people everywhere, all part of the biggest misleading into decadence the world has ever known. Surely San Francisco has done its damnedest in recent years to regain the title of "oddest of the odd;" but theirs (IMO) is mostly mindless. For deliberate scripting only Broadway sometimes beats L.A.

However, there really is an original oddity of L.A. It is the weather. Los Angeles is environmentally a desert. But thanks to the engineering miracle of water management, and the not so miraculous manipulation of water rights, the most populated county in the United States has sprung up around the once little pueblo with the overly long name.

Yes, Los Angeles is well known for its lack of normal rainfall. But have you ever witnessed HOW that happens? Today I am providing you an insight into that perhaps useless bit of knowledge.

Over the last few days we were warned of a high likelihood of a storm passing through today and tomorrow. And it has been overcast since late yesterday. So, wondering when it might hit, I went to the Weather Channel's Doppler radar map to see.

The storm is not passing through Los Angeles; it is passing over Los Angeles.

The street outside my house is dry as a bone.

The rain is evidently falling, but it is evaporating before it hits the ground and rising again into the clouds. The desert is still desert. Yes, we will get our cloudbursts, the results of which could be catastrophic as they have before. But so far, God be merciful, it looks like today is not one of those days.

Like Merciful China

who charges the family of the executed man for the bullet. [For the decency challenged, the title of this blog post is sarcasm.]

After successfully winning a two-year prison sentence against U.S. Border Patrol Agent Jesus E. Diaz Jr., the Justice Department is now trying to collect a $6,870 fine from his wife, saying it should be paid “immediately”even though the judge signaled she would have a grace period.


In a notice sent last week the Justice Department said the fines were imposed by the court that found Agent Diaz guilty and sentenced him to prison for improperly restraining a 15-year-old suspected of drug smuggling.
 
---
Mr. [Congressman Duncan]Hunter had earlier written a letter asking Mr. Holder why the Justice Department pursued the case against Agent Diaz even after two internal reviews cleared him of wrongdoing. [any chilling effect on law enforcement is merely coincidental. /s]



A third review did say Agent Diaz violated rules when he twisted the suspected smuggler’s arms and placed used his knee to apply pressure to the man’s body. The U.S Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Texas brought charges.

Gee! One might even have reason to suspect that DOJ is doing heavy lifting on behalf of the druggies.

And to think there are people who are still of the opinion that "Operation Fast and Furious" was a bungle; a bug and not a feature. /s

Missing the Point

Regular readers know of my primary warning. (Hint for newcomers: read my subheading and think about the implications.)

Here's a title that appeared this evening at PJMedia, and about which I hope many more are now thinking "Well, Duh!"

Wasted ‘Climate Change’ Cash Could Save Lives Instead 



This article is merely another instance where you are being alerted to the bug. The anarchitects of the AGWF, when they feel it is safe to be brazen, will call it a feature. Somehow there remains a whole load of people on the Right who will not suitably upbraid those whose goal is this feature.

I'd call Roger Simon to tell him to inform his contributors, but I suspect I'd be wasting my breath. Maybe Zombie oughta set them straight over there.

A Vise to Crush Our Voices Next November?

I'm far from the first to have thought this aloud. It's simply too bad isn't it? That so many are willing to risk their freedom sooner than risk the embarrassment of saying this aloud and -- God willing! -- be wrong. Too many damned cowards.

President Obama has opening praised the Occupy movement. It makes a lot of sense too. He rightly fears he'll be voted out of power next November without them acting up as they are, incrementally worse each day.

First we had the mindlessness ("revolution now; plan later) on Wall Street with the SKUNC Mayor Bloomberg letting it go on and on, fostering the event even.

And then the ever growing violence in cities across the nation.

It does not take a rocket scientist to foresee that a lack of firm response to crack down on the occupiers will only abet more and worse. Starting with their disturbing the peace and violating various ordinances with little or no push back, they invariably moved on to increasing their outrageousness and their disruption of those who work and live near them. Moving from petty and grand thefts, on to assaults and rapes, on up to arson. I shudder at the coming ratcheting up to mayhem and murder that some have called for from the beginning (that union head) and many more are surely hoping for.

I would not be the first to assess that there are those who so hope this violence from below will provide those at the very top to suspend elections. We already heard such hopes from a sitting governor and a congressman. So much for constitutional governance, eh?

Okay, okay -- I have need of a better cartoonist.

Coincidentally 24 Hours Ahead of the Drudge Headline

I put up two humorous posts yesterday. The shortest one was a continuation of my "Jeopardized" theme I started last year. It gave "CHAOS" as the Jeopardy answer to the question "What is the aim of the Occupy Movement?"

And today, low and behold, here was Drudge's top headline at about 7 AM Pacific.

Drudge link was to the My Way story entitled
Peaceful Occupy protests degenerate into chaos

Yeah, they've been peaceful about as much as they don't stink.

No clairvoyance necessary folks. This was so obviously coming that I  valued it at only 100 Jeopardy dollars.  And meanwhile, the propaganda mills at the AoL continues to call it "the peaceful protest" (so unlike their categorizing of the TEA party rallies).

Pass it around folks. 

The AoL intends to turn reason on its head and thereby provoke further violence. 

Be Prepared.

Useful Idiots for $100 Alex

The Jeopardy answer is: Chaos.



What is the aim of Occupy America?

How Deep In the Quicksand ARE We?

Well, the following series of observations, attributed to Donald Trump and chain-emailed, pretty much reduces us to joking about the authoritarian vise we see being built and closing in upon us.


I'm not a big Trump fan but this is pretty good
Trump Explains Dumbo Care

No one can sum it up better than Trump

Let me get this straight . . . 
We're going to be "gifted" with a health care
plan we are forced to purchase and

fined if we don't, 
Which purportedly covers at least
ten million more people,
without adding a single new doctor,
but provides for 16,000 new IRS agents,
 
written by a committee whose chairman
says he doesn't understand it,
 
passed by a Congress that didn't read it but
exempted themselves from it, 
and signed by a Dumbo President who smokes, 
with funding administered by a treasury chief who
didn't pay his taxes, 
for which we'll be taxed for four years before any
benefits take effect
,
 
by a government which has 
already bankrupted Social Security and Medicare, 
all to be overseen by a surgeon general
who is obese,
 
and financed by a country that's broke!!!!!
'What the hell could possibly go wrong?'

And what is the Republican Party doing about it? Scheming to elect Mitt Romney to administer this horror show.
