Spies Like Us

There is much wailing and gnashing of teeth over Hillary Clinton’s violation of the law regarding the handling of classified documents while Secretary of State. Evidently the FBI has decided it’s not quite through with the investigation, after all. It looks like the trigger for this renewed interest is that while investigating Anthony Weiner’s ( otherwise known as Carlos Danger Esquire ) “sexting” to underage girls, authorities found upwards of 10,000 of Hillary’s missing and classified emails stored on his computer. Oops, that’s embarrassing. In the time since the report, there have been many ideas put forth as to why this happened. I have an idea, and it is my own personal speculation and opinion, but I would like to run it past you and see if you connect the same dots that I do.

It is well known that Hillary Clinton can’t function in any capacity without Huma Abedin. All by itself that is a scary fact, one that I have long wondered isn’t more troubling to more people. By all accounts, Huma is a constant companion, never out of sight or earshot of Hillary. Through leaked emails it has even been acknowledged that Huma has served as Hillary in an official capacity. She was the Bearer of The Blackberry, and would answer emails and communicate faxed documents on Clinton’s behalf. Now……in my opinion that is pretty damning, as we should all expect our President to be able to serve the Nation without having someone handhold them and act in their behalf.

With that being said, I decided to take a look at Huma Abedin and her background………after all, if Huma is to be the brain of a Hillary presidency, then shouldn’t we know who the would-be-proxy-president is? The information is out there, and isn’t even hidden. It’s that it is not reported nor questioned, and this is a direct result of 8 years of an Obama presidency, where any criticism or questioning of policy or questionable personal associations is met with cries of “racist!” and “bigot!”. It has taken its toll on everything we see and hear, in the reaction and response of not just the press, but of average people on the street. Since I have already endured these same slurs leveled at me by faux intellectuals, I am less afraid to ask the uncomfortable questions, and use common sense in answering them.

So……who is Huma Abedin? What I found is, in my opinion, deeply disturbing. Everything I am about to tell you has been noted, written about, and verified in Vanity Fair, Wikipedia, and Abedin’s own published biography…….not exactly the outlets of the supposed “Alt-Right”. From Vanity Fair and Wikipedia :

“Abedin was born on July 28, 1976, in Kalamazoo, Michigan to Syed Zainul Abedin and Saleha Mahmood Abedin. At the age of two, she moved with her family to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, where she was raised and lived until returning to the United States for college.   Her father was an Islamic scholar who founded the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs , an organization devoted to the study of Muslim communities in non-Muslim societies around the world.  His wife took over after his death; his daughter Huma was listed as an associate editor from 1996–2008. Her mother is currently an associate professor of sociology and Dean at Dar Al-Hekma college in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.”

When you look at Abedin’s family, they also have another link to Saudi Arabia in their patron and benefactor, Abdulah Omar Nasseef. He’s the man responsible for setting up the Abedin family in Jeddah, and coincidently a high ranking insider in the Saudi Government…..even sitting on the king’s Shura Council. What’s even more awesome is that Nasseef has been connected to Osama Bin Laden, and is a prominent figure in The Muslim Brotherhood, and the Muslim World League – a front for terrorism, and according to an assistant U.S. attorney who prosecuted “The Blind Sheik”,  a “principle vehicle….for propogation of Islamic supremacist ideology”. In other words, the entire Abedin family is neck-deep in the murky waters of activist Islam. Dad wrote about how to implement Sharia in Western nations, and Mom teaches the glory of female circumcision.

  Huma returned to the States in order to pursue an education at 18…….but then, coincidently (ahem), went to work for First Lady Hillary Clinton as an assistant, just a year later. So……since 1996, Huma Abedin has been Hillary Clinton’s right hand. My question to you is, why would Huma Abedin transfer thousands of classified State Department documents from government servers – to Hillary’s private server – and then to a shared home computer? It looks an awful lot like the plot to a bad spy movie. Except in the movies, there’s at least an attempt on behalf of the spies to fool those around them.

 It’s bad enough that Obama has had as his right hand Valerie Jarrett….an Iranian born daughter of two card-carrying Communist ex-pats. Is it any wonder that we have removed every secular leader we could in the Middle East, only to replace with them with either members of The Muslim Brotherhood or Iranian-backed Islamists? Who in their right mind would accept any narrative that demonizes Trump…… while ignoring the blatant undermining of our Republic through obvious agents of foreign power?

  Amidst all the talk of Russia and its alleged involvement in the documents released by Wikileaks, can you imagine if Donald Trump, for the last 20 years, had as his closest advisor the Russian equivalent of Huma Abedin? It is a dereliction of duty on the part of our elected officials, and those who are supposed to keep them in check, when such dubious, possibly treasonous, characters are implanted at the highest levels of our Government. It would be funny if it was a movie……..and if it wasn’t my country.

Where’s my Amnesty?

Have you paid all your taxes? Have you followed the law, to the letter, your whole life long? Do you owe somebody something? Do you owe a creditor? Are you late paying your bills? Well too bad. You aren’t one of the blameless, sinless, to-be-worshipped, all too honest and hardworking when you’re not, unlearned, and illiterate immigrants from south of the border. What is citizenship worth? What was it worth to the Romans in the 4th and 5th century? How ignorant is America to the lessons of the past?

Very much so, my friends, very much so. One of the blogs I read has a title called, “Why Progressivism wins”, and I agree. But the reason it wins is because civilization has the tendency to decline…… and decline ultimately leads to the victory of progressivism. If only its’ advocates understood this logic. From Tyranny to Revolution, from Revolution to Complacency, from Complacency back to Tyranny. This is why progressives win…… not because they are right, but because everything withers and then dies, just like individual liberty and freedom. The true experiment our Founders envisioned was the the idea of individual liberty flourishing for as long as we kept it honest.

Oops……now we are mostly stupid and ignorant. More concerned with JLaws naked pics and what NFL player is beating the crap out of his gold-bricking fiance. Like many have said, including the 80’s band Cinderella, “you don’t know what you’ve got, till it’s gone….” Well……get ready, ’cause you are about to not know “what you got”…..

Listen… I have neighbors who are from Guatemala. They are nice enough folks, who have been living in the USA for 20+ years. They have a couple of kids, the youngest which is 11. Guess what? They don’t speak English. In fact, while trying to communicate with them in writing in regards to a property issue, I learned they don’t even read and write SPANISH. They have lived here for more than 20 years, use social services, welfare, use emergency room healthcare, have children in public schools, and……..they are illiterate in english as well as their own language. What do you think the next 20 Million our Emperor has deemed worthy will cost? Are you OK with that?

I’m a nice guy. I have worked manual labor jobs that would sicken most of you. I have shared time and meals with people from Mexico, Guatemala, Ecuador, and even sub-saharan Africa. Guess what they have told me? They get away with exactly just as much as we let them. If we, as a nation, required assimilation, they would assimilate. But we don’t. And now thanks to Nero Obama, these illiterate, unskilled, unsympathetic to the concerns of the US citizen “migrants” will be voting as well (LIKE THEY DON’T ALREADY).

So……if you care…. look up the history of every civilization on the face of the Earth that turns a blind eye to unfettered illegal immigration and open borders. Guess what? they don’t exist anymore. Think it’s a coincidence? Ok…..then Hillary and Jeb are looking forward to your suicidal vote. Because like my friend says….. Progressivism always wins. And history is full of the graveyards to prove it.

The Demigogic Demigods

Ahh it’s morning in America. No really, it’s 9 AM and I’ve been reading my favorite online sources of opinion and commentary about the recent “wave” election. All I can say is wow, being right all the time is soooo boring. Not to mention it also infuriates everyone around me. Anyway, I knew that within 24 hours of being the winner by default, the GOP would quickly perform an about face regarding all their empty, gaseous promises of repealing Obamacare, sealing the border, stopping travel from Ebolafrica, and blah, blah, blah. As I have reported before, these bozos are not our salvation. And to top that, the GOP has misread (again) the will of the very people who put them in office. See, nobody I know voted “R” because they think the constipated-turtle Mitch McConnell or Oompa-Loompa orange Johnny Boner, I mean Boehner, were great choices based on their actions, or lack of them, in congress. They voted for the only opposition team on the field. I find myself wondering why they couldn’t at least pretend to hear what the voters were screaming.. which happened to be, “STOP!”

Because even though the American People have the memory of goldfish these days, the crap keeps pouring down so frequently that we can’t get rid of the smell. It’s one thing to have a scandal or two, an unconstitutional executive order or two, and then back to watching “The Daily Show” so we can guffaw at John Leibowitz’s contribution to our decline. The problem is that with the current administration it’s punch after punch, blow after blow (calm down Mr. Clinton), and no time to catch your breath and wipe off the blood. Everywhere I look I see not only the sad, inevitable failure of our Legislature, but also the tin-horn style dictatorship coming out of the White House. I think even the ignorant and blatantly partisan are weary of the gloom that overhangs this nation like fog on the San Francisco bay.

Iran is pretty close to a nuke. The economy is still tanking. Real unemployment, you know, the way we counted it when W was in office, is huge. Race and race politics have become disgusting and frankly tiresome. The press is a joke, nothing more than a modern day Pravda propping up its bad bet on Obama. Illegal immigration is rampant and unapologetic. What was once the mess in Iraq is now the growing caliphate. The gov’t is snooping on your phone and computer, choosing what healthcare you don’t get, and punishing anyone who brings it up. My whole life I’ve heard how bad Nixon was, but in truth, and in hindsight, the guy was a saint and protector of the republic compared to what we’ve got now.

Our wanna be Demi-God in Chief is the ultimate whiny brat. My mouth actually dropped during his press conference ( where once again he took no real questions ) when the petulant man-child said, ” Well, a lot of people didn’t vote……”, Now the guy is going to channel the will of the non-voter as well as ignore the will of the voter? Awesome. Even Bill Clinton, a veritable statesman by comparison, knew to come out and track to the center after he lost congress in the 90’s. I felt like I was watching the biggest temper tantrum ever seen by a grown man on television. Other than ignorant elitists and minorities who vote for color of skin over content of character, who is behind this buffoon? Seriously, I want to know. Because if you hated Bush then you must really hate this guy.

Add to this the disturbing two years to come. Here’s my predictions: Iran will get the nuke and either use it, or threaten to with great effect. The middle east will turn into two factions, Iran and it’s mullahs against the ISIS caliphate, competing for who can blow up the most western assets. Russia and China will throw off their shaky allegiance to the US dollar, at the same time hacking our banking and infrastructure, in effect defeating the once mighty America “without firing a shot”. Our own leadership will flood the country with the disease and ignorance of the third world and then let them vote, all the while stoking the racial divide to a boiling point. Add to that Soviet-style control of our flow of information by seizing control of the internet in the name of “fairness”.

I think, or at least I hope, that some are starting to understand what “fundamental transformation” is. It’s the startling realization that we elected someone who believes that in order to re-make us, he must break us. It’s not about arguing over the old issues anymore, because that is now a luxury we cannot afford. Without the framework of our constitution, and the unity of culture and nationality, the arguments will become infinitely more serious. You know, like how will you feed your family and survive in a world that looks nothing like the one you are accustomed to. We as a people have lazily allowed the true one percent, our Imperial Oligarchs, to take from us the control of the ship. The last election was a step towards regaining the helm, but much is yet to be done. Those who we have elected, no matter what they think, are not the Demi-gods of old…..they are just Old Demigogues.

Oh No…… It’s Mr. Bill Oh’ Really!

Aside

  There’s a troubling trend I’ve been noticing in the last few days. Well… to be honest, it’s not new, and not that many are troubled by it. Maybe that’s what I find so irritating. I just watched a clip of “King Loofa”, otherwise known as Bill O’Reilly, once again pontificating on television while slathered in what looks like oompa-loompah make up.  His grand, arrogant oration to a member of the opposition to nationalized healthcare made me want to spit out my Kroger-brand coffee. 

  His (paraphrased)  point was this: ” Hey, you guys know you’re not going to win this de-fund Obamacare thing…. you know it’s a fight you can’t win…. so why are you fighting it? What’s wrong with you guys? You must be stupid or crazy or both.” Well why don’t we change Bill’s name to Bill Oh Really? I thought this nation was founded on the very notion that some fights are worth fighting. Even when it’s against all odds, even when everyone says it can’t be done. Defeat the most powerful empire on earth? Nah.. Create a republic of free men and women that takes the power from an Aristocracy and gives it to ordinary folks? Nah…. Impossible. So why try? 

  It brings to mind just a few examples of people who spit in the face of Bill Oh Really’s “wisdom”.  I’ve already mentioned the founding of our country, so let’s start there. Do you think that George Washington had confidence in his ability to defeat the armies of the British Crown?  Well I don’t think he did. In fact, if not for the outcome achieved, and with the exception of the Battle of Trenton, Washington kinda sucked at winning any engagement with the British.  His crowning achievement was probably not getting shot right out of his saddle every time he lined the Colonials up for the slaughter.  To me it seems that it surely must have been Providence that we came out on top of the struggle for Independence.

  Let’s make a stab at another individual that made the impossible possible.  Take a look around you wherever you are right now.  Are the lights on? Can you read at night without dripping wax all over you? Let’s forget the whole flourescent bulb fiasco for a second, as that’s the subject for another day.  Electric light has changed the world in a way that almost nothing else has.  Mankind finally did what was thought to be a pipe dream. Bring light to darkness, safety to lurking danger, with the flip of a switch.  Thomas Edison tried hundreds of time to invent the lightbulb. and I’m sure the Oh Really’s of the world told him, “hey, it’s not going to work, it’s a fight you can’t win…. so cut it out already will you?”.  Well I’m glad the Sultan of Shower Scrubbers wasn’t there to, pardon the pun, illuminate him on the futility of his endeavor. 

And finally, I wonder what Mr. Bill would say to Martin Luther King jr. and other civil rights activists of the sixties? Surely they were also told, “Hey…. what you’re doing is impossible. You’re just making a stink for something that you know will never happen.” I guess he’d line up with guys like Democrat Senator Strom Thurmond or Klan member Senator Robert Byrd, Democrat from West Virginia, who personally stood at the podium for over 14 hours to try to block the Civil Rights Act. Or guys like George Wallace, and yes he’s another Democrat , who stood in multiple schoolhouse doors to block innocent children from going to school.

I was under the impression that I was fortunately born somewhere where the impossible is made possible. I thought this was the Nation of Underdogs. I thought this was perhaps the only place on the face of the earth where if you could dream it, you could do it. Because sometimes you fight because it’s the right thing to do, no matter the odds, no matter the cost. History is made by men and women who looked poo-pooers like Bill O’ Reilly in the face and said, “Impossible, huh? We’ll see about that.”

Who Passed the Gas?

Ahhhh…… Here we go again. I have spent several days soaking up cable news and talk radio opinion much like a urinal cake soaks up unpleasant aromas. And just what topic could make me subject myself to such punishment, you ask? The IRS scandal? The NSA spying scandal? The blatant disregard of the Constitution that our (s)elected officials swore to uphold? The National Healthcare debacle? Booooring. That’s so last week. I have been watching, reading, and listening to the incessant beating of the war drums taking place in America by our Elites.  Who cares that almost all of us regular folks, that’s code for moron in Washington by the way,  want nothing to do with this. 

  Establishment types on both sides seem to be blaring the call to war  like those annoying weekly standard tests that mess up my CSI reruns.  How strange. I keep getting this weird feeling of deja vu….. I vaguely remember another middle eastern country with a “dictator” that was gassing his own people and threatening “instability in the region”. We needed to “form a coalition”, and “keep all options open” to stop the slaughter.
I don’t remember……. did that work out well? In the scheme of things, there was far more evidence of WMD use in Iraq than there is in Syria. The scary thing, actually it would be funny if not so frightening, is the same bobbleheads that predicted doom and failure in Iraq are calling for action in Syria. WTF? I thought the main source of trouble in the world was an Imperialist America that couldn’t mind it’s own business. In fact, I thought we elected the current political leadership based on an opposition to this kind of fiasco.
So here we are…. The president is on TV, red-faced and irritated with having to answer questions from a foreign press that isn’t in line for his autograph after his not-so-stellar golf round. I found it ironic, if not a little sad, that while meeting with the Swiss Prime Minister our Duffer in Chief decided to give a little lecture about military action in Syria. That’s class ladies and gentlemen, giving a war mongering temper tantrum while standing next to the leader of an officially neutral country.

I am appalled at the lack of outrage by our press, and also by the “Code Pink” groups of the world. We have ZERO evidence that Syria has used chemical weapons. You say, ” no way. man! The POTUS says we have intelligence that there are WMD’s!”…. Well, I can remember a different POTUS saying pretty much the same thing. So, that guy was wrong and needed to be condemned by history, but this guy is awesome, not to mention completely trustworthy, right? Good to know Obama is on track to earn the Nobel Peace Prize he received awhile back.
And where are the calls for caution in this rush to conflict? Nowhere, that’s where. You’ve good ‘ole John McShame calling for action. You would think a guy held in a cell for several years by an undeclared enemy would calm down a little bit before possibly sentencing scores of young Americans to the exact same fate. Speaker Boner now calls for the same. All that’s left is for that manliest of all senators, Lindsey Graham, to declare in a loud, lispy voice, ” Leths go to waaah!”. Watching these idiots let themselves be cornered by possibly the most incompetent executive to ever hold the office is mind blowing. Let me get this straight, the prez says “I’m making a red line you can’t cross!”, and when it’s allegedly crossed, suddenly it’s “our” red line, or Congress’ red line. I love how when Barry talks good news, it’s “me, me, me”, but when he steps in a pile its, “we, we, we”.

Here’s the real issue. We have been told for years that we cannot depend on nameless, vague “intelligence” that is used to commit our country to military action. Now, mired in serious scandal that at any other time in history, with any other party, would result in impeachment, our Administration finds it’s Grand Illusion. Or if you prefer, Grand Distraction. I want to see all the baby boomers, millennials, and peaceniks who have been squawking for so long, about so much, to stand up and say, “It was wrong for the previous administration to take us to war in another country, over incomplete information…..and it’s wrong now, regardless of politics”.

I won’t hold my breath……even though someone supposedly passed gas.

Go Ahead with Your Own Life, Leave Me Alone

You know, I hate to sound like a jerk, but shut up ex-presidents and veeps. Shut up Congress. In fact, if you work for a creepy, bloated government agency, or a creepy, bloated network, just shut up. I don’t need alot of protection from people in other parts of the world that I will never meet. I need to be protected FROM YOU. Listening to all of these wise people tell me they need to shield me from everything that could possibly cause me harm, I now realize that I am a moron. Replace my knives and forks with soft rubber sporks, because I might stab myself in my tiny little brain.

I realize that many folks that I respect, who aren’t dummies or drinking any parties’ Kool-Aid, strongly disagree with my logic on this, but……No one has a right to throw my liberty in the dustbin to “keep me safe’. I don’t care if we’re talking about automobiles, airport security, electronic communication or phone calls. Let me ask you this…. can I read your mail, look at your text messages and cellphone pictures? Can I come in your house while you’re gone and go through your drawers? Can I search your car? How about your kids if you’ve got ’em…. can I look through their stuff? Your husbands? Wives? Well Why not?

I’m a nice guy. I’m reasonably intelligent and I have your best interests at heart, I promise. With all due respect to our police and military ( who do a very difficult, underpaid job ), they are just people. The Elites inside the Washington beltway, some of who have been there three or more decades, are just people too. Granted they are freakish in many ways, they are still just folks like you and me (with power and millions of dollars). So if you wouldn’t want me to be a Peeping Tom in your family’s home and life, why allow countless, nameless others to be?

While we’re at it, what is safe? You could, while reading this, choke on your coffee or have an embolism. Some jerk could run off the road in a Hummer and barrel through your crib, not only ruining your flat screen, but ruining you as well. With all the threats to our well-being, it’s a miracle any of us survive long enough to fill a diaper. I could put you in an air-filtered, armored box and deliver your checked and approved meals to you. I would listen to your calls, read your mail, and give you your medication. I’d even provide for your healthcare. You’d be pretty safe then, right? Hey…… wait a second. That’s prison. I haven’t met many people who have been and called it a safe place, liked it, or wanted to return.

The world I grew up in is unfortunately gone. That statement is made worse by the fact that I’m really not that old .To give you an idea, I will have to pay full price for coffee at MickeyDees for another twenty years. Some of that change is, of course, inevitable. Technology has altered every aspect of our lives at a much more rapid pace than I can believe, and the pitfalls are as numerous as the benefits. The argument I run into the most is the technology problem. I will sum it up like this…… if you post pictures of your junk on Facespace or Mybook, then you made a decision to do so. Having that photo archived by the federal government is not your decision. See, we make a choice to use technology such as Google or Yahoo. We DO NOT make the choice to have that information compiled by Uncle Sam.

Here’s the rub….we are guaranteed Freedom of Speech by the Constitution. That right is recognized by the document, but granted by the Creator. If you know that your speech is cataloged and used against you at a later date, depending on your political persuasion, I can absolutely say with certainty that you will watch what you say. That is a de-facto infringement on our freedom of speech. When you’re afraid that what you say will come back to bite you, then you just might not say it in the first place. So, if you want to submit your speech to the Feds to keep you safe, so be it, just don’t ask, or force, me to. In other words, go ahead with your own life, leave me alone. ( Thanks, Billy Joel )

Orwell’s Grave is Smoking ‘Cause He’s Spinning So Fast in It

Here’s what I’m trying to wrap my brain around…..
In perusing the cable news world of talking-bobbleheads this morning, I have come to a somewhat shocking discovery. I say somewhat for this reason : I’m not surprised. Really I’m not shocked at all. I’m actually a little sad. Wanna know why?

I have seen the Right and the Left all over the news in the last 48 hours, both doing the same thing. You see, they finally found something to agree on. And the winner is……. screwing people like you and me. Whether it’s the IRS, or Benghazi, or to me the most troubling development, the NSA data collection bomb, all of our not-so-honorable, not-so-civic-minded “leaders” are in concurrence. We have no rights. If the need to tax, protect, medicate, or just make any decision affecting your life arises, we are not in charge. Now, I know that I travel in circles where lots of peeps will disagree with what I’m about to say. I don’t care…. because for now I have the right to say almost anything I want ( unless it’s hateful, potentially racist, potentially anti-LGBT, or just non-PC ). If you didn’t notice, I said “almost”, because our freedom has already been diminished.

I would rather the occasional really bad thing to happen if it means I am free. If you, on the other hand, are too stupid to manage your life’s decisions, no matter what they are, I really don’t care. You should not have the right to impede my freedom because you can’t handle yours. Enter our idiotic political class… ready to wipe your little bottom, read your ridiculous emails, prescribe your medication, tell you where to squat and push.

This should scare you. Why would anyone assume that the people we elect should build big bureaucracies filled with people we don’t elect, to spy on our every move? In fact, right now these very keystrokes are being logged and recorded into a massive file with the rest of my info. Our government is now the biggest, creepiest, dirtiest stalker ever. Worthy of a “Who the Bleep did I Marry?” on the Discovery Channel.

Maybe you are a democrat or republican that says, “hey, if we’re not doing anything bad we have nothing to be afraid of, right? I mean, if it makes us safe it’s ok, right?” Well, in fact, it’s not. That kind of thinking denotes the success of the Department of Education over the past 50 years. And with all due respect, that kind of thinking makes you an idiot.

To put it perspective, in the last 24 hours I have seen Barack Obama and Karl Rove say the exact same thing. Something to the effect of, ” Hey we live in a dangerous world and we need to yada, yada, yada.” Well it’s always been a dangerous world. In fact, it’s a much safer world than ever. Your great grandpa faced more danger standing on the south side of a half-ton farm animal tied to a plow. Like every day. Or maybe that cut or toothache would lead to your slow, painful death. Let that sink in for a moment.

If all of this data collecting and snooping on us is so helpful, how come we couldn’t catch the 2 Boston guys, Speedbump and his little bro? They were on Facebook, they wrote emails, they even travelled overseas to visit other bad guys. So if our government is spying on us to keep us safe, why didn’t it? I’ll tell you why. Because our omnipotent government isn’t at war with those freaks. They know the risk from them is relatively small in the scheme of things. They are at war WITH US. With your God-given freedom. With your right to speak freely. With your personal liberty. With your right to own property. With the very idea that “we the people” hold the tail of the tiger. Because the tiger is our government, and it’s tired of being caged by our rights and constitution. The tiger thinks it’s about time to be loose in the streets to devour whatever it wants.

And if you don’t get it, or don’t care, or think it’s ok in the name of safety, watch out. There’s a hungry tiger out there, and we’re whats for dinner.
