Time For Torches Pitchforks And Amoxicillin

RogerStoneQuoteNew York Times bestselling author Roger Stone came up with a great line about America’s foremost political grifters.  Stone has a book coming out, “The Clintons’ War on Women.”  

Sadly, I think you could tar most of the country’s professional political class with the same brush.  Democrats . . . Republicans . . .  it matters not.

Weasels from both parties are a disease that is killing our country.  Both donkeys and elephants only seem capable of producing the same same failed policies that offer humongous government solutions to societal problems caused by a lack of personal responsibility on the part of our citizens.
They are looters who exploit a system  fueled by money from special-interests.  They continue to pass laws that place ever more onerous burdens on the average citizen while exempting themselves and their cronies from the same laws.

The sleepy, mind numbed, seemingly clueless electorate keeps returning the same infectious slime to office term after term.  The average voter probably knows more about Bruce Jenner’s genitalia than they do about their Congressional Representatives’ voting records.  And that’s just the way the political and media elites want it.

Fools Rush In

TwainQuote2

We all know that Hillary Clinton attracts scandal like fresh cow pies attract flies. Let’s take a stroll through the fertile pastures of Hillary’s career in public service and hope we don’t step in anything.

Peer way back to the 1970’s and her work on the Watergate investigation. Her boss, Jerry Zeifman, a Democrat who served as counsel and chief of staff for the House Judiciary Committee, said that she “…engaged in a variety of self-serving, unethical practices in violation of House rules.” He’s also quoted as saying “She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.”

Remember “Chinagate?” In 1996, the Clinton-Gore campaign allegedly took bribes from Chinese banks and their masters, the Chinese Communists. It seems that the Chinese embassy in Washington D.C. helped siphon money into the coffers of the DNC.

Ron Brown’s body lies a molding in the plane. Commerce Secretary Ron Brown reportedly sold seats on Commerce Dept trade missions to China. Word of these and other fundraising shenanigans leaked out and the investigations were about to result in indictments. Brown publicly claimed that if he went to jail, he wouldn’t be going alone. Of course, before he could answer any questions, he was killed in a mysterious plane crash. His son later pleads guilty to money laundering.

There were to be joint congressional hearings but Democrats threatened to bring up Republican campaign issues so the hearings were conveniently canceled. Before much happened, the media got distracted from campaign scandals by a cute little heifer named Monica Lewinsky. Remember how before Monica’s semen stained dress faithful wife Hillary was on record saying that all of Bill’s bimbo eruptions were lies and rumors spread by a “vast right-wing conspiracy”?

How about Travelgate? Bill Clinton’s cousin, Catherine Cornelius, wanted a job in the Whitehouse travel office. Amazingly enough, Hillary made sure seven members of the travel office staff were fired. All these nice folks were replaced by Clinton associates from Arkansas. When Billy Dale, the head of the travel office had the audacity to complain, Hillary had the FBI investigate him. Turns out he had done nothing wrong, but just for good measure, he was audited by the IRS for the next three years.

Other vintage Clinton scandals include Whitewater, named for a shady real estate development firm in which Hill and Bill were partners. James and Susan McDougal, good friends of the Clintons’, went to jail for fraud, Jim Tucker, the guy who succeeded Clinton as governor also went to the pokey for fraud along with a couple of municipal judges. Hillary and her husband came out of the scandal with no worries. She says they did nothing wrong.

Don’t forget the mysterious death of Vince Foster Jr.

Few people probably remember the Filegate Scandal. For some reason, Hillary hired a former bar bouncer, Craig Livingstone to work in the White House Counsel’s Office. On her orders, he had the FBI send up over 900 files on various people the Clinton’s didn’t like much. The Filegate investigation and ensuing court cases went on for almost 10 years. Most people have forgotten that during those years another email scandal was uncovered. Seems that Hillary and Bill were able to cover up and suppress more than a million potentially incriminating emails that should have been handed over to Congress and Special Prosecutor Ken Starr.

It was also learned during this investigation that Bill illegally released Privacy Act protected information contained in White House files– info that was used by the Clinton’s ever-willing accomplices in the mediaclintstephstreetart to smear Kathleen Willey. You probably don’t remember Kathleen, one of the many women who came forward after improper sexual advances foisted on them by Bill.

Let’s also think back to Hill’s miraculous Cattle-Futures deal. How about Lootergate, where the Clinton’s, especially Hillary shipped furniture from the White House to their mansion in Chappaqua, N.Y. After public pressure, they shipped some of the furniture back. Don’t forget about convicted drug trafficker Jorge Cabrera, who made such a huge donation to the Clinton’s campaign that he was invited to the White House without any pesky Secret Service agents present. Let’s also remember Norman Yung Yuen Hsu who ran a Ponzi scheme promoter and major Democratic donor. Norm contributed an undisclosed amount to Hillary Clinton’s 2008 campaign.

And, of course, there’s Benghazi, but as Hill famously shouted, “At this point, what difference does it make. . . !” It makes a lot of difference to the families of the four Americans killed there.

clinton cashAnd let’s remember her State Department email scandal, and all the scandals involving the Clinton Foundation. Check many of them out in Peter Schweizer’s well-researched book, Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich.

The real tragedy is that there are far too many people who still support these people.  Sadder still, they refuse to believe that they’ve been fooled by America’s foremost political grifters.

 

Leftists Hate Truth

SowellQuote1

Truth be told, is there ever a good reason to riot and burn down businesses?  In the cities where all the race based violence has occurred because of police shooting young black men, leftists have been in solid control for at least four decades.  Did it ever occur to the residents of these places to vote out their so called leaders?  Perhaps the lure of “free” benefits is too enticing to overcome with mere truth and reason.

When a mob burns down a business, private citizens lose their livelihood.  In most of these cities, a business owner would face severe criminal penalties should they choose to defend their place of business with force of arms.  Ever wonder why the rioters don’t burn down city hall instead? Isn’t it the police, ergo local government they are upset with?  The truth is that police would shoot them down like dogs if they attacked a seat of government.  The greater truth is that all the “free” benefits come from the very businesses they are setting fire to.

Happy Birthday T. J.

JeffersonQuote2How happy are you on this day, the anniversary of Thomas Jefferson’s birth?  How do you think Jefferson would react if he learned that In 2011, the IRS’ own estimates revealed that individuals and businesses spent 6.1 billion hours a year just complying with the tax code?  That’s just part of the burden.  There are a lot more federal regulations to consider.

Happy birthday Mr. Jefferson!  I’m so glad you did not live long enough to see America now.

Where’s The Truth In Indiana?

Franklin Graham, religious leader and son of Billy Graham in Washington, DC.Supporters say that the Indiana Religious Freedom Restoration Act is needed to protect religious business owners who don’t want to provide services for same-sex weddings.  Critics, shrilly squeal that the measure would legalize discrimination against gays and lesbians, Muslims and Jews.

Does a business owner’s right to stand by their deeply held religious principles trump a Lesbian couple’s “right” to a wedding cake?  I have to come down firmly on the side of freedom and the business owner.

Take the logic to an extreme.  Suppose that a gay couple owned a bakery in Topeka, Kansas.  Then suppose that a heterosexual couple who are active members of the Westboro Baptist Church walk in and order a cake for their upcoming nuptials. The bakers feel that it would violate their deeply held principles to serve these customers.  Should the law force them to betray their beliefs and provide a service to people they don’t wish to serve? Isn’t it simpler and better for society for the Westboro haters to just go find another bakery instead of launching vast oceans of vitriol via social media then suing the bakery owner into bankruptcy?

The truth is that Christian doctrine only tolerates homosexuality.  In today’s climate of political correctness, the gay mafia and the left leaning public education mafia have managed to redefine tolerance to mean advocacy, especially for millennials.  While that new definition may have made its way into the popular culture, it has not and will not change the definition of tolerance for serious Bible studying Christians.

The adage “Hate the sin. Love the sinner.” is cold comfort for gays and lesbians. Mostly because many Christians do such a lousy job of living according to the rule.  Most lesbians and gays can’t be expected to relish the idea that they are sinners. I don’t like the fact that I am a sinner, but the truth that we all fall short of the Glory of God and need a Savior, is the core of Christian belief.

I also don’t like the idea that some people will think I’m hateful toward others just because Scripture clearly describes the way they behave as sinful.  I didn’t write the Bible.  We all like to look for loopholes to justify our sins, but Christ calls us to righteousness, not denial about our very sin nature.

The truth in Indiana is the same as the truth everywhere.  A handful of devout Christians will always stand up for what they believe God wants, no matter the cost.  A smaller group of militant LGBT folks will never be satisfied.  Redefining words does not change hearts and minds. Tolerance is a two-way street while advocacy only goes one direction.  When you make tolerance meaningless, you make peace impossible.

For The CHILDREN!

PittQuote1Too many stupid laws and regulations have been foisted upon us “for the sake of the children.”  In the wake of the Sandy Hook School massacre the gun control fanatics immediately called, once again, for a ban on “assault” weapons.  This was due to the fact that the crazed lunatic stole an AR-15.  The weapon wasn’t used inside the school, but according to the creed of slaves, all such weapons should be banned anyway.

In the wake of the terrorist attacks on 9/11 Congress passed the Patriot Act, the greatest assault on the Bill of Rights ever foisted on the people.  Government needed the ability to  violate the Constitution in order to keep the children safe.  These violations were to only last a short time–  just until the war on terror was over. The war keeps dragging on with no end in sight, and now the NSA is recording every text, e-mail, and phone call without a warrant in sight.  They lied about doing it and when their lawlessness was exposed by Edward Snowden, the branded HIM a traitor.

The world is indeed a dangerous place, but the next time you hear a member of our permanent political class say that some law or restriction should be implemented to help keep you safe, think of the wisdom of William Pitt.

One Party– Not Two

JudgeNapolitano1The judge is correct.  The leadership of both parties have only one concern, hanging on to their own power.  Eventually the parasite of big government will bleed its host dry and reap the whirlwind.  Those in government with the courage to stand for what is right are few.  Those who are ticks sucking the lifeblood of the American people and our economy are legion.
