Is Anybody Scared Yet?


chrysalisI feel as if we have all been sucked into some kind of time warp where events are occurring in triple time everywhere. We’re heading for some kind of big bang, again, I’m more and more convinced. I can feel it twanging in the air. If I were a cowgirl with my ear to the ground, I would say the Indians are coming, a lot of Indians. As I commented to a fellow blogger familiar with the ugly face of socialism at a personal level, what this feels like isn’t any old ordinary evil we know or knew, but something distilled and pure. Seriously, if Obama were to appear at his next faux  press conference with horns and cloven hoofs, I wouldn’t be at all surprised. He’s playing a massive role in what is coming in America and abroad. He’s definitely Satan’s little helper.

The latest insult to everybody still sane in America is the story being peddled about Benghazi. Now the prevaricators are getting far more sophisticated than they have been to date. They have morphed from it was the video, to it was terrorism, didn’t we say so? to it was the video, but it was also terrorism! Now we are told it was the SECOND attack, the one that ended up with a dead Ambassador, that was “professional” and “well-organized.” And guess what sent them to the annex to maraud and murder? It was that first spontaneous bunch of dunderheads who like, totally amateurs. They haven’t claimed as yet that the amateurs were provoked by the video, but I can see it coming. So we are back to lying to save the fat butts of people like Hillary and Barack.

I admit it. I didn’t think we would ever see the day when our military officers would sit and spin a load of crap to clear the good name of their political patrons. But a friend of mind predicted it when the “kingpin” (oops, low-level drudge) who was in on the marauding was nabbed by US agents. I say nabbed, but of course this guy all but came forward with wrists together. He was walking around giving tv interviews, but it was not until a huge stink was made about the fact of his non-arrest that he was amazingly found. But the guy and his handlers disappeared from view for a while before showing up on US shores. Of course he was in CIA hands. The CIA, last I looked, had become about as politicized as the FBI.  And now it is gradually emerging from the words of this low-level drudge that nobody in either the White House or the State Department lied about what was happening in Benghazi. Nobody made any mistakes. It was all set in  motion by something as unpredictable as a video snippet by a disturbed man.

monsterThis bit of theater in lieu of transparency is added of course to the VA scandal — talk about cold, indifferent and utterly worthless civil “servants” (and I’m pretty sure that the servant part will soon be a thing of the past as somehow demeaning to black USG employees). And then we have the Mother of All Scandals, the IRS conspiracy. What is happening is a very rapid push (don’t you sense the panic?) to make as many difficult to reverse gains in politicizing the USG before Obama is a thing of the past. This process  will continue if Hillary Clinton is elected. Our government has grown into a monster that has a life of its own. It can’t be killed.

Here’s another insight: the “army”  Obama has often spoken of creating to enforce his ideas is actually this army of South American Indians who think nothing of selling their vote — old hat for them — and are loyal for the millennia to whoever takes care of them. Being taken care of was once novel for these Latin Americans, but now that is old hat, too. I’d bet every one of the guys who mows my lawn has his hand in every open pot. But here’s a prediction and it isn’t original, but an echo of one made years ago by a Secretary of Labor (a Republican at the time): there will be racial warfare between the Hispanics and the Blacks over jobs and benefits. There most assuredly will be.

Because of course the US isn’t growing at a healthy pace, despite all the happy talk. We are morphing rapidly into a nation of consumers who don’t produce anything of value. Our economy can be controlled by guys like George Soros and Warren Buffett and Bill Gates. And these are guys who aren’t happy just being super rich — they want super power, too, and they want to remake the entire world in terms of their “visionary” philosophies that come with a heavy dose of “shut up and take it, it’s good for you.” The stock market boom is a fiction, as well. Wait until it crashes again, folks. The billionaires will earn more billions, all taken from y-o-u, the world’s drones.

And abroad, things are a real mess. On Syria, the US has turned a blind eye to Syrian bombing of Iraq, because the bombing aims to eradicate the rebels fighting both Assad and the Iraqi government. But we are also arming the guys trying to bring Assad down. And all of this has become urgent because Obama screwed up royally — or claimed a great victory for his personal vision — in Iraq. And we got rid of Assad’s chemical weapons, but it seems that we failed to claim the cw that is in the hands of the US-supported anti-Assad mob, or so it seems from the discovery of empty sarin containers left behind by the ISIS crowd in Syria or Iraq or some such hell-hole.

We also have the irony of the US telling Russia not to violate Ukraine’s border while refusing to enforce the US border in line with their secret “Open Borders” policy. And our border has indeed disappeared under the weight of a deliberate offensive against US sovereignty from our south. At last the US is experiencing both “waves of refugees” (fleeing their contemptibly corrupt and brutal governments, violence and no work or benefits) and “separatism.” (The separatists already march with Mexican flags in hand.) And the worst of it is that I am absolutely convinced that the orchestrated influx of kids and assorted others was connived in by the Democrat Party and the jerk in the White House. I think they know that just doing it and not worrying about the legality is the best way to force on America that “permanent majority” we should all dread.

So this is the kind of nightmare world we became after leaving the blessed chrysalis of the US was up until the late 60s. Instead of going from ugly caterpillar to beautiful butterfly, we’re moving in reverse.

  1. Only conservatives give a rats ass about “Benghazi,” or really any of these pseudo-issues as they relate to Obama and these phony scandals and narratives. Fortunately, the demographics, they are a-changin’. Soon, you cons will be a regional minority. So, you guys just keep frothin’ at the mouth and barkin’ at the moon. See where it gets you.


  2. Ah, Jersey McJones…how does it smell where your head’s at? I guess it’s only a scandal if a republican or conservative is in charge.

    And actually, you’re wrong. Conservatives are a growing segment of the population. You just don’t know it yet because your head is shoved so far up Obama’s a$$, you can’t see the truth.

    Black folks are beginning to realize what a pig in a poke they’ve been sold by the democrats lo these many years.

  3. It took a more than few years to herd the southern blacks into the high rise ghettos of New York, Chicago, Newark, et al then bribe them into breaking down the family, the work ethic and their overall pride with dependency dollars provided by the working middle class. But today’s federal bureaucracy and the various religious denominations headed by the catholic church have the south americans prepped and ready to demand all that is coming to them.

  4. Regarding the statement about the political influence of George Soros:
    “Because of course the US isn’t growing at a healthy pace, despite all the happy talk. We are morphing rapidly into a nation of consumers who don’t produce anything of value. Our economy can be controlled by guys like George Soros and Warren Buffett and Bill Gates. And these are guys who aren’t happy just being super rich — they want super power, too, and they want to remake the entire world in terms of their “visionary” philosophies that come with a heavy dose of “shut up and take it, it’s good for you.”

    The folowing analysis is illuminating for all concerned.

    Individual-Funded Political Activity
    Soros and the Koch brothers have all donated to federal political campaigns and committees. While Soros has far out-spent the Koch brothers in donating to 527 groups, especially when considering his incredible $23.7 million in donations to the groups between 2003 and 2004, the Koch brothers have donated more money to federal candidates and committees.
    The Koch brothers give almost exclusively to Republicans just as Soros donates predominately to Democrats and Democratic organizations. Overall, Soros has spent $34.24 million and the Kochs have spent $4.06 million. (Note: This study only covers donations to federal candidates – to see donations to state candidates, go to Followthemoney.org and search for Soros and Koch. For example, as Ben Smith of Politico wrote recently, David Koch and his wife have given $74,000 to a Democrat, Andrew Cuomo, New York’s State Attorney General.)
    Individual donations to federal candidates, parties and political action committees (1989 to 2010)
    Koch Brothers: $2.58 million
    George Soros: $1.74 million
    David Koch: $2,224,170
    $667,500 – National Republican Congressional Committee
    $555,000 – Republican National Committee
    $191,400 – National Republican Senatorial Committee
    Charles G. Koch: $363,100
    $58,900 – National Republican Senatorial Committee
    $50,000 – Republican National Committee
    George Soros: $1,748,627
    $252,670 – Democratic National Committee
    $147,216 – Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee
    $259,716 – Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee
    David Koch’s Favorite congressional members:
    $17,100 – Todd Tiahrt (R-Kan.)
    $7,600 – Elizabeth Dole (R-N.C.)
    $7,200 – Mark Foley (R-Fla.)
    $6,600 – James Inhofe (R-Okla.)
    $5,000 – Sam Brownback (R-Kan.)
    George Soros’ favorite congressional members:
    $6,500 – Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.)
    $6,200 – Jon Cranley (D-Ohio)
    $6,000 – Ken Salazar (D-Colo.)
    $6,000 – Dan Maffei (D-N.Y.)
    $5,500 – Tom Perriello (D-Va.)
    Individual donations to 527 organizations (2001 to 2010)
    George Soros: $32.5 million
    Koch Brothers: $1.5 million
    So-called 527 groups are non-profit, tax-exempt organizations that are allowed to raise money for political activities including voter mobilization efforts, issue advocacy and other actions. They are allowed to raise unlimited amounts of money from individuals, corporations and unions. Until earlier this year, they could not use these unlimited contributions to expressly advocate for the election or defeat of a federal candidate. Federal court rulings — including Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission and SpeechNow.org v. Federal Election Commission — have broken down that restriction. For more information go here, here and here.
    As mentioned previously, Soros spent $24 million in under two years and did so in his determination to defeat George W. Bush in 2004. He told the Washington Post in November 2003, “America under Bush, is a danger to the world. I’m willing to put my money where my mouth is.” Since December 2008, Soros has only donated $4,000 to these types of groups. On June 30th of this year, David Koch made a $1 million donation to the Republican Governors Association, his largest one-time donation to date.
    David Koch: $1,472,000
    $1,352,000 – Republican Governors Association
    $100,000 – Americans for Better Government
    George Soros: $32,506,500
    $12.05 million – Joint Victory Campaign 2004
    $7.5 million – America Coming Together
    $2.5 million – MoveOn.org
    $3.65 million – America Votes
    $3.5 million – The Fund for America
    $150,000 – Win Back Respect
    $120,000 – Majority Action
    $100,000 – Campaign Money Watch
    Soros certainly wins the 527 group spending battle, beating the Koch brothers $32.5 million to $1.5 million. A graph below show the history these donations (click on graph for full size):

    Soros vs Koch 527 donations CORRECT.bmpVERDICT: Soros rules this category, having poured more than $34.2 million into political channels, compared to $4.06 million for the Koch brothers.

    Think Tanks and Political Organizations
    In addition to donating directly to political candidates, parties and committees, the Kochs and Soros have funded numerous political think tanks and advocacy groups. These groups are not required to reveal their donors, therefore making it hard to come up with a comprehensive list of organizations that have financial ties to these individuals. The institutions mentioned are those most well-connected with the Koch brothers and George Soros.
    Charles Koch co-founded the Cato Institute, a libertarian think tank, along with Edward Crane in 1977. Charles and David Koch, along with Richard Fink and Jay Humphries, co-founded the Citizens for a Sound Economy in 1984. In 2004, CSE broke off into two groups: Koch-linked Americans for Prosperity and FreedomWorks, headed by former congressman Dick Armey. According to its website, Americans for Prosperity “is committed to educating citizens about economic policy and a return of the federal government to its Constitutional limits.” In addition to those mentioned above, Charles Koch has helped to build the Institute for Humane Studies, the Bill of Rights Institute and the Market-Based Management Institute.
    David Koch is currently on the board of directors at Cato, as well as the Mercatus Center at George Mason University, a research center dedicated to “market-oriented ideas.” He is a trustee at the libertarian Reason Foundation whose goal is to advance “free minds and free markets.”
    George Soros founded the Open Society Institute which is his primary philanthropy organization. According to the website, “The Open Society Foundations fund a range of programs around the world, from public health to education to business development.” While the foundation spends much of its resources on democratic causes around the world, OSI has also contributed to political advocacy groups such as the Tides Foundation. In 2004, Soros pledged $3 million to the progressive think tank, Center for American Progress. Soros is also a major financial backer of the Democracy Alliance, an organization committed to drive progressive activist funding and the recently formed Institute for New Economic Thinking, which was jump started by a $50 million pledge from Soros.
    Both the Koch brothers and Soros have given generously to nonpartisan charitable organizations. David Koch, who is still receiving treatment for prostate cancer has donated $120 million to cancer research at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, $40 million to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, $100 million to renovating New York City Ballet and Opera Theater, and $20 million to the American Museum of Natural History, among other donations. Soros recently pledged $100 million to Human Rights Watch, and he has made many other charitable donations such as $50 million for the Millennium Promise initiative to eradicate extreme poverty in Africa. In 2003, PBS estimated Soros had donated more than $4 billion since the 1980s.
