Ooobie on Everything

A Veritable Cornucopia of Revenge

I’m smiling. Of course, the revenge I refer to is not that of the “Resistance,” that motley crew of smuggies and losers, but that of the staid old conservatives. We knew from the very moment the story of Russian conspiracies with Trump was birthed that those stories were lies. On so many levels, this was transparent. Hey, tell me: how many people do you know who didn’t make up their mind on how to vote in that election within moments of Trump’s nomination? If Putin himself had shown up on Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s doorstep, with roses and caviar and minks and under-the-table pay-offs and birth control protection, could he have swayed her? How many illiterates are swayed by FB? How many illiterates are Democrats? Egad, the questions are like no-see-ums in August in Florida.

I’ve just been biding my time for the truth to out, after all my blogs that explained the duplicity involved, based on my long experience. I am nevertheless amazed that the truth is outing. The Orcs (no relation to “trolls”) are being routed from the heart of our sacred and ultimate defender of truth and law, the FBI, and its parent agency, the Department of Justice. So far, there is no movement to clean out the CIA, the other key participant in the Russian Fairy Tale. I see that ex-CIA honcho Morell, who was a True Blue Clintonite, is starting to distance himself from the conspirators in his agency. Perhaps he was innocent, just another rah-rah Dem who thought that being progressive still encompassed the idea of fairness and truth. Not like the new breed of Dem Socialists, who think all truth is relative, fairness is stupidity, and lies can be sold as the truth to the “Masses”as easy as pie.  And by gum, these incredibly ugly precepts seem to be selling like hotcakes to today’s youths and spinsters and men who are mentally transgendering to the point of wearing pussy caps and marching with hate-filled women.

Okay. What else? Oh, yes. That stupid shut-down. I worried a bit about it. My often right hubby said that the GOP would be blamed no matter what. I said, “but the Dems are doing it, so I think you’re wrong.” Then I read that the Dems had based their shut-down on polling, and I knew we were a shoo-in for victory. Gee, guess who was right this time? Big win for Trump, yuuuuuuge loss for the Dems and personally for Schumer. And then Schumer, unnerved by being upstaged by Trump, turns face and withdraws a common-sense deal to trade status for the illegals brought as children for the fortification of American security. Now he rejects the latter as virtual anathema and demands all the Dem wishes be fulfilled for free. No borders, no border controls is the Democrat Party Anthem. (And if a baby happens to survive an assassination attempt, they think it’s okay to put a knife through his heart.)

Whew. The Dems are having a Party-wide breakdown. They think the rest of us are brain-damaged by left-wing parents or from surviving assassination attempts as infants.

Let’s look at N. Korea. Still no nuclear conflagration, as Kim what’s him name studies photos of Trump’s multiple buttons. The response is to send cute N. Koreans south to wow the entertainment-starved world at an Olympics that has excluded some of the world’s best athletes on what were transparently political grounds. Kim aka Rocket Man said to be practicing pole vault.

Let’s look at Russia. Still going strong, still mightily miffed at being endlessly smeared by Americans who do not know that communists are Putin’s likely successor in an overthrow! In Syria, and predictably, the Turkish Air Force is pounding the Kurds whom the US briefly wanted to turn into an army to unseat Assad and Erdogan. Of course, the US by then had actually abandoned the Kurds, so there was no need for Erdogan to be so rude. The Russians meantime watch to see at what point they might usefully reinsert themselves into Syrian defense, and pressure their ally Assad to negotiate a safe status for Kurds within an integral Syria.  This is all good news for global stability.

I think Trump is learning in foreign policy, and here is something else I think: a lot of the global leaders who supposedly cringe at Trump’s overly-direct words are not at all offended. In fact, they love it, they approve of it, they encourage it. The truth, and the most powerful man in the world is saying it! Listen to the president of Uganda, who just loves Trump’s willingness to cut through the crap. I am pretty sure that every Latin American leader, from Mexico to Peru, envies Trump for the freedom and power to say truth. And applauds it, because for once an American president isn’t talking about taking responsibility for Latin America out of their (hapless) hands. I drank a lot of beers and vodkas with a lot of tough male politicians south of the border, and I never heard one of them praise a wuss. I guess the only places where leaders are cringing are those headed by women.

How could I close without a fond adieu to the Me-Too Movement, which is fading like the Wicked Witch of the West. I see the Wall Street Journal has run an article on the Weinstein brothers and how they founded an empire. I’d say rehab of the grabbers is underway, while the stupid, stupid women who blabbed are being silenced by the simple act of denying them work (who wants to work with backstabbers and crybabies?). The few women who were really heroines, such as Courtney Love, will probably get it in the back, as well, while the savvier, such as Streep, will get a free pass. Ho-hum, another day in Sodom and Gomorrah.




It’s Official: United States is a Banana Republic!

I am still in shock. That bastard Comey has declared Hillary Clinton NOT a criminal even though she deliberately and for four consecutive years left all the communications from the Secretary of State open to (his opinion) likely hacking by enemies of this country. I would bet my entire pension that Vladimir Putin and the guy in charge of China read Mrs. Clinton’s emails while on the bathroom throne. And then use the record for something else.

Let’s repeat  it for the record: this decision by Comey came on the heels of a meeting between the Attorney General, his boss — the one who wants to hunt down legal US gun owners and anyone who is mean to Islam — and that old El Corrupto, Bill Clinton. It was supposed to be a secret meeting on the tarmac, two private jets belonging to the Power Set, where whispers were exchanged — no photos! no microphones! — but alas, the conspirators were discovered and while those of us sick at what is happening in this country fumed at this meeting, the AG reacted as if it was all a big ho-hum. So, you caught us in another act of blatant corruption, big deal. Who cares? Of course, if only I could do it all over again…

Did Obama ever even say a peep about this tryst on a tarmac? Don’t think so. But I think I discern behind all these egregious actions a giant middle finger, the dark brown of someone half Kenyan and the other half “One Hundred Percent Global,” floating on the horizon. I can’t wait to see the next thing Obama does to offend our country’s good people before his big ass is bounced onto the pavement. He thinks this is a big ha-ha, I guarantee you. In fact, the theme of Obama’s eight years of destroying America is “Who cares?” Who cares about the Constitution, who cares about the law, who cares about opposition, who cares that I am totally bought and sold and corrupt and stupid? — where is that brilliant historian who will write this for us, that biography of Obama called, Who Cares? (co-authored with George Soros).

Back to the total posturer, Jim Comey. In recommending no criminal or other charges against the offending Clinton, he chose to ignore:

— all those thousands of deleted emails — official USG communications being sent on an unauthorized server, an insecure server, known to be such to key officials of the US Department of State — that Mrs Clinton unilaterally decided to withhold from official archivists and then destroy. What was in them? How do they know? Destruction of even one document is grounds for felony charges;

— the fact that even people working for an outside organization, the Clinton Foundation, were allowed access to this insecure email server, which transmitted many highly classified items of information;

— the fact that it is accepted by all hackers that the Clinton private server was hacked, giving all sorts of people access to classified information.

— the fact that the CIA said it was certain she was hacked.

How can Comey say, “but don’t anybody else do this henceforth, or else!” and still absolve her? Isn’t that prima facie evidence of special consideration? Is this Corruption writ large, or what? It is so shameful, that I can really say today, “For the first time in my  life, I am not proud to be an American.”

Can you believe that we bomb countries because they have a corrupt judicial system?

I could go on, but it is making my blood pressure soar. I was under FBI escort and spent about 3 and a half hours in actual interrogation at FBI HQ because of an unfounded (and unproven) rumor spread by a Cuban KGB guy, who actually seems to have been pointing to another woman in the Consulate. Gen. Petraeus told a US military vet (his lover) with a security clearance information she shouldn’t have had and the Obama Administration turned him over (after secretly recording his trysts, no doubt) for public roasting. Jim Comey thought Petraeus, unlike Mrs. Clinton — a serial offender — deserved a sentence.

But Jim Comey didn’t get to be head of the FBI by being a straight arrow. A friend of mine called Comey that weeks ago; something niggled in the back of my head saying “Comey is a political stooge” and I said so. Now my niggling sense was proven right. How sad.

The combination of all these events is like a crown on an administration that has gloried in all the things they have destroyed: marriage (dead); the US military (queerified and beyond); US borders — huh?; US foreign policy — the bombing begins in 5 minutes.  Now, in addition to the EPA and IRS gestapo, we have the usual gestapo, the FBI, but now a truly State Gestapo.

Folks. I frankly think it’s too late to recover any foundation for our country. We are fragmenting into ever smaller pieces while at the same time, our government grows larger.  Our rights are disappearing and the idiots who vote, many many of them, favor that direction. Give us bread. Give us a roof no matter how humble. Open the borders and let love reign supreme. Tell us how to think and live. This is the New America and who better to be that bridge than the Clintons?

My husband is reading this so I have a message for him: maybe not Costa Rica, but where?

The Supreme Court Rewrites American Culture

I’ve been wanting for weeks to write something about that lying sticky-fingered candidate for the presidency, the Missus, but it’s a lazy summer and it has made me lazy too. Still, things around me have suddenly begun to fall apart at an alarming rate, although Americans appear oblivious. You’d get a far larger percentage of Americans who could tell you about the Kardashians latest inanities or the newest “K” for Caitlyn than can tell you why the US is not coordinating with the whole world to bring down ISIS, or why Russia is Public Enemy Number One again, not that they really care about any of those things anyway. Now I see how it was that terrible things like WWII happened. Nobody saw it coming or cared, either.

And you can be sure that most Americas are unaware that the US is now for the first time inserting itself directly on Russia’s doorstep with our heavy weapons, our materiel, our jets, our military advisers and even our troops. The risks of direct confrontation are thus exponentially greater than they were when the threat from NATO/US was less immediate. Russia will respond and is already accelerating its move away from western production of any kind of military components or devices to domestic production, as well as toward accelerated production of nuclear weapons both tactical and ballistic. They will forward base their own weapons and materiel, right there across the street from NATO.

But it is at home where the greatest damage to America is being incurred. The US Supreme Court in just a couple of decisions has attempted to rewrite western culture. With one sweep of the judicial pen, these justices have pretty much annihilated the institution of marriage, leaving in its wake some alien and absolutely malleable something that in the end will expand to include ever  more bizarre unions, all of them equally good or bad or neutral or whatever. As one of the judicial dissents on gay marriage noted, it is a predictable and foregone conclusion that the next to qualify as married will be the polygamists. He didn’t add “and after them, any combination of two or more persons (no doubt even animals and inanimate objects) including those of family members and adults and children.”

This obscenely wrong decision came right after the Court’s majority repeated its earlier derogation of duty by totally ignoring the text of the law under consideration in rendering judgment on Obamacare subsidies. In this case, the actual words of Obamacare were not rewritten, as in changing a “penalty” to a “tax.” They avoided the problem of very clear text they opposed by deciding not to rely on text as a basis for their analysis, opting instead to divine the “intent” of those hundreds of legislators who wrote and passed the bill. As if there were one single intent, like a bee hive or an ant hill, which is what the leftists running the asylum would have us be, in a perfect world (the same one where communism is the perfection of socialism). John Roberts could just be called a traitor; or even suspected of being a blackmail victim; but then he voted the next day to uphold traditional marriage. I guess it’s better to call him crazy. Maybe it was the head problem he had. Maybe as a result it isn’t always John Roberts on the bench, but maybe, sometimes, Teddy Roosevelt or Jesus Christ himself.

We all know what is coming. The left is baying for blood — stop tax exceptions for the religious! Silence the anti-gay right! Shut down the churches, hound the believers out. This is totally nuts. The do-gooders of the Court have opened the gates to hell.

They are joined in their perfidies by the US Congress, those spineless corrupt traitors to the American people. The latest insult and injury is that GOP leaders have ignored vociferous bipartisan public objections to both the secrecy of the TPP treaty text and the wheeling and dealing going on (again behind closed doors). Part I of this screw-you-America legislation has already successfully cleared the hurdle of Congressional approval and now gives the President the right to “fast-track” trade negotiations. What’s the damned rush about? The secrecy shrouding this bill is a repeat of the “considerations” that preceded imposing Obamacare on an unwilling nation. It is absolutely unacceptable and a violation of the public trust. What are we doing about it, then? Not a thing.

The GOP leadership all got big donations at the time they were pushing the legislation. I’m sure you’ll find the exact same situation on the Democrat side. It’s all about power and money. It’s my new mantra: power and money, power and money. It explains everything.

Speaking of power, money and corruption: those emails are keeping Hillary busy making up stories or steadfastly ignoring the news as she tools around the US presenting herself, the owner of her very own e-mail server, as Everywoman. If we had an opposition leadership in DC we’d be wiping up the floor with the self-righteous but sinister Mrs. Clinton and her list of suspected felonies. Instead we have a bunch of self-interested valueless men who sell themselves as pragmatic. This business of the server may in fact bring her down, even if only Trey Gowdy wants to do so. She did not turn over all her work-related emails to the State Department or to the US Congress under subpoena. She withheld, at a minimum, relevant Benghazi emails. In addition, those emails she sent that contained not one confidential thing were riddled with confidential information. The US Department of State, trying to cover its ass, has actually now given the correct classification and redacted the emails sent to Congress. (The upside of confessing that you failed in your institutional duties by allowing valuable and sensitive information to be sent daily on an insecure server is that you don’t have to let Congress see what Mrs. Clinton was saying.) Even the White House ignored her use of a private server, apparently sharing the Secretary’s blasé attitude toward national security. The State Department is now looking thoroughly politicized and incompetent.

As for the Republicans, they’ve been an across-the-board failure at anything other than playing to their interests. They haven’t succeeded in or seriously attempted to make good on anything promised in 2012. They have played hard-ball only with their own members, in particular those who think the words of the Constitution mean something, like Justice Scalia. They seem to think the public is an ass. They work hand-in-glove with the Democrats in Congress to satisfy the same money/power sectors and the will of the rest of us is worth bupkis. Among the presidential aspirants, I’m a Rand Paul supporter, but I also love Ted Cruz. Unfortunately, the Machine has its own candidate and as in recent past elections, their choice will win and it will be Pablum Redux. Then the question will be, how many who feel betrayed and ignored within their own party will stay home or vote for somebody else? How many will decide they really have wasted enough votes on Dem Lite? I can’t believe those fools in the RNC haven’t figured out what’s coming.


Two Thumbs down for Supreme Court

supreme courtI’m shocked. Really, shocked. I am appalled, too, that the US Supreme Court refused to hear an extremely important case of religious freedom. What the Court lost was a chance to say that just because a law exists in some part of the world, it doesn’t mean it is a just law or that the United States should not shelter someone seeking haven from that unjust law. In many Moslem countries they mutilate all females by removing a certain body part. You could argue it is a non-discriminatory law because all those having that body part are subject to the same law. Yet we grant (and should grant) amnesty to females who escape and get to the US. But somebody seeking to avoid state indoctrination because of religious beliefs– no way. Religious shmeligious. The US Supreme Court doesn’t care. Law applies to everybody, non-discriminatory, no issue.

I don’t know what the Romeikes will do now. If I were they, I’d look around for a friendly religious country (Latin America, maybe? just steer clear of the Marxists!) and head there. Just keep moving. The long arm of the German State will have to keep moving, too, if they are really that keen on grabbing six more children to brainwash. And I wonder why there has not been an uproar in all the media wherever religious freedom exists (does it exist anywhere anymore?) to say – hey, modern socialist Germany looks a heck of a lot like Nazi Germany, without the goose-stepping.  As someone once told me, scratch a German Marxist and find a German Nazi.

I’ve had it with Europe, I’ve seen a lot of it and frankly it all looks the same. Like a pretty postcard. Furthermore, it’s getting to be like the former Soviet Union, where you could travel far and wide and never see a single innovative and different thing. The New Europe is a lot like pablum, even if the food is often better. The worst of it is having to endure that insufferably superior European attitude.

And I’ve had it with the Supreme Court too. Where do the Republicans come up with their nominees? Was it too much to expect that we could have had a true and steady Constitutionalist as Chief Justice? Here’s the deal – no need to worry about losing that fifth seat on the court. It’s already subverted.

Our Lying Government: A Confederacy of Lunatics

scheindlinI just skimmed through a Wall Street Journal article about NY judge Shira  Scheindlin, the woman who ordered massive and senseless changes to NYC’s  stop-and-frisk policy that she considered unfair to blacks and hispanics. Police  Commissioner Ray Kelly has stated that 75 percent of all NYC crime is committed  by blacks; and 99 percent of all crimes in NYC are committed by either blacks or  hispanics. Despite these facts, Ms. Scheindlin wanted the police to waste time  and money making sure that 40 percent of people stopped and frisked are white.


A Government Sunk in Racism

perez as foxA chill just ran down my spine. I was skimming through the latest developments in the “Get Whitey” campaign launched by Eric Holder when I came to a report of a conference call the government initiated to consult with (coordinate for the cameras) an assortment of federal officials and civil rights leaders (white-haters). I’m sure these leaders included agitators like Al Sharpton and maybe even Danny Glover. The man who convened the telephonic meeting was none other than the new Assistant AG Thomas Perez. Thanks to the Senate’s Supine Collaborators — a group extremely similar to the Gang of Eight Morons — Perez was confirmed in his new role and now we now have a Marxist and Wise Latino in charge of the DOJ’s Civil Rights Division. Oh, creepy. This malnourished and homely leftist intellectual has absolutely no shame. He comes out of that time-honored Latino tradition of selling anything saleable. When Perez wants something, nothing gets in his way. Want me to drop a suit against you? No hay problema. Or maybe I can bring a suit against your enemy, just to make a point. There are no end of possibilities for the unprincipled Mr. Perez to create mischief in his new role. If he is stage-managing the Trayvon Martin fantasy, look out for trouble. We have a government riddled at the highest levels with racists.

I’d love to leave Zimmerman to history. He’s becoming as much a miscast icon as Trayvon Martin. Who would have guessed in a thousand years that two such ordinary people would become the focus of the nation? How incredibly stupid are we? These tragic things have become our entertainment, our version of the Roman Arena. It’s better than a reality show, only with very unattractive cast members. The more our social fabric rips apart, the deeper we immerse ourselves in false dramas. Hollywood and the infotainment industry can spin anything up by pitching a simple line — white/bad vs black/good, e.g. — and throwing in some action scenes (mobs). The more of us who eat it up, the more dramatic it all becomes. Lord, this is a filthy little world we are living in, and a lot of the mind rot is starting here. Made in the USA.

trThe most shameless aspect of the tale is the way the Black Community has behaved. Let’s call it out loud: the representatives of black America who are turning up to pillage and destroy, or just to threaten, speak volumes about the so-called culture that has grown from the Democrat Party plantation and zombie factory. Loud, foul-mouthed, belligerent, ignorant and uneducated, they seem to think that just because they wanted to send George Zimmerman to Death Row the jury had an obligation to agree. And if the jury didn’t agree, they have a right to torch the place or maybe beat the daylights out of some random white folks. These people are too stupid even to know they’re racists.

Looks to me like we’re headed into a period of heightened racial tensions in our country. The constant derisive treatment of whites by blacks and their facilitators, the USG’s use of race-baiting politics, and the active role played by the media in actually inciting conflict with highly inflammatory rhetoric and the doctoring of information all bode ill for our social peace. White people are beginning to react after a long period of passive acceptance of such treatment. There is plenty of tinder for a conflagration. Blacks shouldn’t think that a future rampage wouldn’t be met by a white backlash.

So, those are my scary thoughts of the day. On another subject, I hear some rumblings about a third party (suicide, but many people feel like slitting their wrists these days). It makes me worry that 2014 will not be as happy as the GOP is predicting. I’m not sure party leaders truly realize how alienated a huge part of their base is. It’s like John McCain and Lindsay Graham are from another planet. We’re tired of platitudes, of having our representatives act as if our views are primitive and unworthy of consideration. We’re tired of the exhortations to think clearly (shut up) while they collaborate in extinguishing our liberties. Wake up, GOP.

I think the administrative machine might be getting the message. I used to make generous contributions to everything GOP. I’ve saved a lot of money this year, but I’m getting a lot of junk mail from the GOP saying “payment overdue.” It’s a sentiment I share.



The Racial Outrage that No Longer Impresses

racism 2I am so bored with it all, so contemptuous anymore of the black community’s self-righteous and self-serving tantrums when things don’t go their way. These folks, the ones waving their fists and threatening to kill whitey or hound George Zimmerman to his grave if they can’t put him there themselves, are so beyond dignified mourning that their cause no longer has a thing to do with Trayvon Martin. This is just more thirst for revenge by thuggish stupid people whipped up by vicious demagogues and all that’s needed to go for whitey’s throat is a perceived slight or the refusal to judge things through a certain racially-tinted lens. The leaders of the pack, who have zero respect for law or order, are all too often false and corrupt men of  God who want nothing so much as personal glory and hopefully some material payoff down the line. We are in the midst of another outburst of violence from a bunch of people who are used to getting everything they want just by sticking their hands out and if they don’t get it, they’ll whup your white ass. Well, guess what? They didn’t get what they wanted this time around. Welcome to the crowd, Black America. We on the white side of things have had decades of deferring to whatever your black community wanted, swallowing a whole bunch of injustices, and getting shafted in the process. It’s time for equality. The same rules of law apply regardless of the color of your skin. If responsible politicians ruled our country, we could get that without violence. Guess not.

And one more word. As a Hispanic, I resent the idea that Latinos have to play the pawns for the State. We are whatever the government wants us to be –maybe we’re white and maybe we’re minority, whatever works at the moment. Zimmerman was a Hispanic. Where is the Hispanic Community in all this? Are you totally bought off? I wish Hispanics throughout the country would take stock of what happens to them if they ever have a run in with the poster children for the welfare state, our illustrious Black Community and their big-mouthed stars like Danny Glover and Morgan Freeman, not to mention card-carrying Marxists like Eartha Kitt and Harry Belafonte. You are definitely not Number One among the Democrat Party racial identity cells. Remember it.

Of course the absolute conviction that they have the right to punish white people because a jury failed to hand them the outcome they desired is fostered from the top down, from Obama the sham Constitutional lawyer (I doubt he could argue a case successfully) to the shameless and felonious Eric Holder, neither one of whom gives a damn about the white part of this country and actually incite racial hatreds. Both of them should be in court.

This is really the limit. Trayvon Martin wasn’t a kid, he was a good-sized male who had for all intents and purposes already reached his adulthood. He had an attitude. He didn’t like the white guy following him and he decided to teach him a lesson. It ended very badly. But Zimmerman didn’t go out looking to kill a black guy, and if two black men had been involved or two white men, the jury’s considered decision would have caused no controversy. The jury verdict has been degraded into the grist of racial politics because politicians and community organizers, encouraged by our US Government and taxpayer money, have chosen to gin up another race case to hype their black voters. And you better believe they want to use it as a wedge on the issue of stand-your-ground laws as the left pushes to overturn laws around the country. It is sick politics, the only kind our country seems to have anymore.

I’d like to remind the angry blacks threatening to burn the place down that this is exactly how millions of white Americans felt when the brutish OJ Simpson was acquitted. I heard one thick-skulled black at the State Department gloating after the acquittal at the time that the white bitch deserved it. What class. Well, now you guys know what disappointment feels like.

la riotsJust fyi, I’d say there are millions of white Americans who right now would probably be delighted to meet black violence with white violence. Tempers are frayed on all sides, not only among African-Americans. Whites are tired of being treated as some special category of vermin; there are civil rights in this country and they aren’t just for people of the right color or ethnic provenance. They are for everybody or nobody. Racial hatred incites racial hatred and I have never seen it so vividly proven as since Barack Hussein Obama came out of the absolute nowhere to become ruler of Amerika. I have never felt the power of pervasive racism as much as I do today. This is one of the greatest evils Obama has unleashed on our nation.

These are troubled times.


Our Color-Blinded World


racismIt seems to me that skin color or other physical characteristics are incidental to the whole racism thing. Such traits simply make it easier to lump together particular groups of people, but it is something else that prompts the persecutor’s desire to demean the group in question. The African slaves were all black, but that was incidental to the fact that they were all the lowest of the low, having to do whatever was required without complaint and without payment. Their own people had sold them and thus robbed them of their human dignity. It was not their skin color, but their position at the bottom of the societal pile that provoked the contempt for them. By contrast, in Russia in the 1700s, Tsar Peter the Great had an African slave whom he became fond of and allowed to live in freedom as part of the Tsar’s court. This man went on to marry a Russian noblewoman and from this union sprang the great Russian poet, Pushkin. The African had not been at the bottom of the pile, but at the top, even if his skin was black and he had been purchased. Because the Tsar deemed him worthy of respect and freedom, so did everybody else. If the situation with the slaves been reversed and Africans had taken white slaves, the whites would have been equally abused — because they would have been at the bottom of the pile. Color is a mere cataloguing convenience.

rothschildIn Germany, the Jews occupied a different but no less special position in society, being numerous among the wealthier citizens and having a significant interest in banking. When the Nazis were looking for someone to blame for Germany’s dire economic situation before the Second World War, the Jews were almost natural victims. There was a history of anti-Semitism in much of Europe and the Jews stood out by their clannishness and supposedly common physical traits. They were easy to single out. But the Jews really were targeted because so many of them were superior in achievement to the average suffering German, certainly richer, and they had great power over people’s lives. They were a magnet for resentment. The image of the Jew wasn’t the humble school teacher, but the rich industrialist or banker. And, very importantly, they were a law-abiding minority loath to resist authority. Numbers and attitude count.

white guiltI’m thinking about this whole color thing because the Zimmerman trial is a microcosm of everything that is wrong with so-called race relations in 21st century America. Here is a guy who appears to have been parachuted in from the Andes and the color-conscious media rushes to call him white. This already weights the case against the defendant, as we all know. In fact, his daddy is white, but his momma isn’t. She’s a woman of color, no doubt having a lot of Inca blood. Common sense tells me that Zimmerman’s greatest misfortune in this trial is his German last name, a point the left has tried to play on by calling him a white Hispanic. Who gave them the right to decide which half of Zimmerman is dominant? Zimmerman thinks of himself as Hispanic — doesn’t that count for anything? If we decided to call Obama a white African, would that be okay too? It would be equally applicable and equally inappropriate.

zimmermanThe defense in the Zimmerman trial started out buffoonishly, but they soon recovered their senses. Here is the picture I have mentally put together of what we have heard from both sides. Trayvon Martin was innocently walking to the home of his father’s girlfriend where he was a visitor, talking on the phone to someone. He had his hood up because it had been raining on and off. Martin was a somewhat toked-up young black male of indeterminate age, tall, physically buff and angry at the world as teens are wont to be. Along came a chubby Peruvian with a concealed-carry permit and a gun in his pocket. He was patrolling because there had been a series of burglaries in the neighborhood and the residents were nervous. So was Zimmerman, armed and on edge. Zimmerman saw the hooded figure and didn’t recognize him from the neighborhood. His suspicion aroused, Zimmerman did the right thing and called the police. Zimmerman suspected another break-in was planned. Told not to follow the guy, Zimmerman nevertheless did. He wanted to know: was the guy going to do something or just loiter and where was he headed? He wanted to tell the police where to go when they show up. He’s a cop-lover.

trayMeanwhile, the way I see it, the lovely Rachel Jeantel of the limited vocabulary must have been providing dull-witted encouragement to Martin’s announcement that he was going to teach the fat boy a lesson. Why did he keep Jeantel on the line as he accosted Martin unless he wanted her to know how tough he was? Martin stepped up his pace to get out of  Zimmerman’s sight and then hid behind a shrub to ambush Zimmerman and turn the tables. When Zimmerman went skulking past, Martin jumped him, just wanting to give him a good lickin’. But Zimmerman now was sure that this assailant was no resident, but a really bad guy who had him pinned on the ground and was whaling away at him. His nose was probably broken and it may be that blow that caused his head to bounce on the cement. The abuse was not only terribly painful — there are nothing but nerve endings up there on the scalp — but raised an immediate fear of brain damage. Zimmerman — the guy being pummeled — was obviously the one calling for help, but nobody responded, as is often the case here in the home of the free. He panicked, managed to get his gun out of his pocket and shot. His sole intent: to prevent further injury to himself and get Martin off of him. Martin died.

Of course much of the above scenario is what I see in my head from the evidence presented. If Jeantel told Martin to whup that white boy’s ass, she isn’t saying. As the Emperor Claudius knew, it is sometimes useful to play the idiot. But this is the narrative that makes sense to me. No matter what Martin’s mother believes (and I think she has convinced herself it’s so), it makes zero sense for her son to have been calling for help. He was doing quite all right by himself. It had to have been the guy on the bottom shouting for help. The prosecution says there was none of Zimmerman’s DNA under the nails. Why would there be? Martin wasn’t scratching Zimmerman, he was punching him with his fist. Was there any DNA on his fists?

So here is the bottom line: unless you think George Zimmerman went out determined to find and kill an innocent person, then we can accept he did not act with malice aforethought. Who was more at fault for this sad event? Trayvon Martin for ambushing and physically accosting Zimmerman because the latter was following him, or George Zimmerman for not hanging back and letting Martin go wherever he was going? By the time the police arrived, Zimmerman must have figured, the guy would have disappeared. He was a cop wannabe, but is that a crime or make him criminally-inclined? Is daring to be a Neighborhood Watchman, or daring to be legally armed, or wanting to see where a stranger is headed in a crime-plagued neighborhood, criminal behavior?

Here is my standard: if Zimmerman had not tried to see where Martin was headed, there would not have been a confrontation. At the same time, if Martin had ignored Zimmerman, who was not physically accosting him or approaching him more closely, he would have arrived home safely. I personally don’t think there would ever have been an incident if Martin hadn’t been a testosterone-laden 16-year old having some animosity toward whites and looking to vent some angry energy.

thumbHere’s the ugliest part of the story. It seems that the judge and the entire State side are so frightened at the thought of retaliatory violence from the black community should Zimmerman be acquitted that they are bending every rule to convict him of something. The judge’s bias in that direction has been evident since the beginning of the trial and it has only gotten worse along the line. She was in way over her pay grade and behaved like a petulant woman. But she was doing duty on behalf of the State, which wants a conviction on something, anything. Hence the eleventh hour agreement to allow the prosecution to completely change its case by significantly widening the possible convictions allowed the jury. Somebody is pushing downward to make sure the right verdict is arrived at. Somebody has their thumb on the scale.

Although I hope nobody resorts to violence in this matter, I wonder what the State would do were the white population to riot in the wake of a conviction for Zimmerman. Wouldn’t that be an eye-opener.

Justice Not Done: The Government from Hell

imagesA thing or two: first, since when is it legal to give a judge a knowingly bogus statement in order to get a warrant for spying on a US citizen? And two, is Kathleen Sibelius an actual human being or a robot?

First things first. I never went to law school, but I am dumbfounded by the gall of the DOJ claiming that it was perfectly fine, legal to the bones, to knowingly and falsely accuse someone of being a suspect in a terrible crime to get a judge to issue a writ for surveillance. Justice insists that its true target was the government leaker, not Fox News correspondent James Rosen, but that claim just raises a pack of new questions without answering any of the old ones. I wish I could bring that kind of power to bear against people I consider foes of the American idea. There would be a whole lot of Obama louts cooling their heels in the slammer.

Let’s look at the Rosen issue logically. There are only two options. DOJ officials may truly have considered Rosen to be an active and felonious co-conspirator in obtaining and disclosing highly classified information and may in good faith have sought authorization for wiretapping to gather evidence against him. In that case, DOJ is on firm legal ground as long as it then proceeds to bring the case once the leaker is identified. Or they never believed that Rosen committed any crime, or that he was a co-conspirator in a felony, and lied about that material fact to get the warrant they wanted in order to carry out a broad surveillance of Rosen’s life and professional activities. For political purposes.

So which was it, Eric Holder?

Fortunately, we don’t have to scratch our heads over this puzzle while waiting for Holder to come clean. The gangsters at DOJ blithely informed Americans that they never intended to charge Rosen. “Chill out, man, it wasn’t, like, for real.” They also claim that they didn’t lie on the warrant, but we all see the problem there — if it was the truth, and Rosen was a felon involved in doing grave harm to US security, how can you not proceed against him? It was an alleged crime of such gravity that it required DOJ to violate First Amendment rights,but not of such gravity that those responsible needed to be prosecuted.

It is my conclusion that the request for authorization issued by Holder was fraudulent in substance and thus a criminal act by Holder and all others involved in violating Rosen’s rights. Furthermore I think pretty much everybody knows that DOJ’s true goal was to gather otherwise unobtainable information about Rosen, a high-profile Fox News reporter.

Can our government, those unelected and apparently unaccountable drones that toil in the service of their political bosses, use false claims to arm themselves with writs against anybody they want to snoop on? Can they use lies to bring the power of the USG to harass, hound and persecute Americans? Is a lie okay if it is intended to a good end? I don’t think so.

Here is my proposal: let’s arrest Eric Holder on the grounds of having gravely violated the fundamental human rights of thousands of Americans and then put him on trial. Perhaps at the Hague, allowing somebody else to pay for the trial. Let’s find out the truth and be prepared to put a lot of other Obama officials behind bars. And for those arrogant dolts who think they have some divine right to spy on and oppress Americans, we reply that we also have a divine right — to kick you criminals and brutes out of business and out of government forever.

dyingchildAnd now to somebody I love to hate, that lipless and apparently soulless wonder, that Stepford bureaucrat, the very sight of whom chills the heart. Yes, Kathleen Sibelius. Without batting an eye, the Ice Sculpture made it known that she couldn’t possibly intervene to save the life of a ten-year old girl who will soon die without an intervention by Ms. Sibelius or perhaps, dare we think, the president? Uh-uh. That wretched woman cannot intervene, but she did give the grieving mother some tips on groups who might be able to help her.

I won’t mince words: Kathleen Sibelius is a miserable virago bereft of any human decency or redeeming value. She has fought for the shabby purpose of giving our youths free contraceptives and abortifacients and is indifferent to her violation of freedom of conscience and religion.  She has not been heard to utter a word of condemnation for the abominations carried out in the offices of Kermit Gosnell. I’m sure she utterly approves of “pathways” (euthanasia) to push out the door the growing number of elderly as well as the malformed, the mentally ill, and other socially useless types. She will happily rule over the implementation of totalitarian measures to force through the far left’s vision of healthcare paradise, otherwise known as the Obamacare hell. But when a flesh-and-blood suffering child who knows what is happening to her asks for help, Kathleen is able to give some phone numbers for some groups who maybe could help.

On the basis of her performance in this instance alone, I call for the removal of Kathleen Sibelius forthwith from office. She has demeaned herself and her country’s reputation by all of her shady, anti-life activities while Secretary of HHS and most of all by denying succor to a dying child. What a piece of work.


Trust the Government, But Don’t Verify It

obama graduationWhat can one even say? The level of chutzpah in this Orwellian regime is stunning. Our Beloved One spoke at a graduation ceremony recently and in that sneering, snickering voice we’ve come to detest, warned that forces of evil were whispering in their ears not to trust their Government, that Government was somehow bad. Don’t listen to those voices, the president warned the starry-eyed youths. It’s all conservative skullduggery.

What a liar that guy is.

Even as the Cool Guy was speaking, the details were emerging of one scandal after another involving abuse of government power for political purposes. Disclosures laid bare a picture of sinister activities by Obama’s enforcers in the USG who carried out the President’s will  — in first place buddy Eric Holder at the Justice Department, then Homeland Security and the IRS. The Benghazi scandal also brought in the State Department, which apparently exercised poor judgment throughout the Libyan saga — in my opinion from the decision to intervene to depose and murder Qaddafi, but certainly from the decision to have any US diplomatic presence in Libya that was not massively secured. The Department’s post-crisis engagement in rewriting the story does no credit to the Department or its then-Secretary, Hillary Clinton, who took full responsibility (in a very limited way) for the actions of the State Department and then disappeared from view for a long time. She ought to be given full responsibility for the Benghazi debacle and for the web of lies she wove afterwards about that pesky video. The lie she perpetrated about religious inflammation led to, probably required, the arrest of the maker of the video on some third-rate parole violation, but this was an act of political detention — just like in Guatemala or North Korea. The victim was a convenient scapegoat and his arrest showed the Moslems how sorry we were for somebody exercising freedom of expression. I think the man ought to bring suit for political persecution by a desperate government.

petraeusSad to say, even high-ranking military officers and even David Petraeus lost their way in all the Benghazi deceit and ended up complicit in the deception peddled to the American people in defiance of what they instinctively knew — that this was a terrorist attack.

Obama also had other helpers in abusing the power of the government, to wit, anybody whose last name begins with A through Z who works at the IRS. We are only beginning to see what they were up to over there under those green eyeshades. Ms. Lois Lerner is turning out to be quite the Machiavellian, having previously used her power at the Federal Electoral Commission to hound the Christian Coalition, once again asking inappropriate questions about religion. She had an even wider field to operate on at the IRS. One hopes somebody will start screaming at the top of his lungs for the removal from office of this woman and her investigation.

It’s possible that of all the sins committed, the stupidest one, the one that will cost Obama most dearly, is the violation of journalists’ civil rights through wiretapping and other surveillance. This jackboot policy has finally given our lefties in the press a taste of what the rest of us have been feeling: violated. Do I detect a certain cooling of the love affair between Barack and the boys on the bus?

It is looking very gloomy these days for Mr. O and a lot of others who have carried out the Chicago Machine’s insidious plots against Americans. Reputations will be undone. Scallywags will be paraded and maybe even tried for their crimes against the Constitution. Hopefully at least one political career will go into permanent stall, particularly when coupled with other grave flaws and loads of heavy baggage. You know who I mean.

These anti-Constitutionalists have used the people’s government against the people, to collect information, to monitor, to influence, to control, to slander, to harass and abuse, violating our fundamental civil rights. Worse, they have deliberately lied to the American people on one issue after another. They are felons. And they are running our government.

So, young graduates, take that into consideration when you decide whether or not to trust your government. If you still do, you  need to go back to school.
