Abhorring the Vacuum

10 09 2014

Washington, D.C.

It’s finally dawning on the left wing Obama brown nosing cultists:

The good news is that Obama has a pen and a phone.

The bad news is that he won’t have a pen and a phone forever, eventually someone else will.

I think this essay is missing a few things.  Some of the crucial ways in which power has been accumulated around the Presidency in the Era of Hope and Change also include the fact that President Obama is just flat out ignoring the Federal courts in some cases, his executive branch regulatory agencies are on a regulation-issuing rampage, and that his official opposition is mostly hapless and ineffective and given to slap-happy dead end attempts to oppose him (the lawsuit that this essay mentions at the beginning will amount to nothing), and in the case of immigration, deliberately so because it mostly agrees with what he’s doing, the few immigration patriots in Congress notwithstanding.  When you get right down to it, I think the Republican establishment is perfectly happy with ObamaDontCare, because its prime beneficiary, the insurance industry, dumps a lot of money on Republican politicians and Republican-allied think tanks and PACs.

Otherwise, the historical trend is undeniable:  Power abhors a vacuum, and when it can, it almost always accumulates around some central singular force.  That axiom has been aided in recent American history by both the increasing trend of presumed Federal supremacy in most public policy, and an original flaw of the Constitution that invests all military and Federal law enforcement power in the executive branch.  That’s what Obama really means about this “pen and phone” business; it means that he has control of the world’s most powerful military and of Federal law enforcement, the chances of either being defeated for the foreseeable future are slim, so therefore he can do whatever the hell he wants.

Except I think the author of this essay doth protest too much when he worries about future “conservative” Presidents’ use of the pen and phone.  Sure, we might have Republican Presidents, in theory, but the Republican establishment is working day and night to make sure that no genuine conservative (quote-unquote) can win the Republican nomination for President.  That and as I write this, “genuine conservatives” are still worshiping at the altar of the Cult of the Constitution and the cult of one form or another of libertarian ideology, so all you’ll hear them talk about in their quixotic Presidential campaigns is how they want to “restore the Constitution,” as if it’s any more possible to restore a dead document than it is to bring a dead man back to live, notwithstanding that one example two thousand years ago.  The writers at Vox would have a lot of reason to worry if someone like your ever-lovin’ too snarky for his own good blogmeister was running for President in 2016, who would promise to use the pen and phone to benefit white people.  But nobody like me seems to want to do that.





Hidden Hand

Austin, Texas

Taking a break from Ferguson for just a moment.

When IRSgate broke, I said here and anecdotal evidence has demonstrated that I was on solid ground in saying so, that RINOs and establishment Republicans were a hidden hand.  Because they and the Democrats have one thing in common:  Hatred for the Tea Party Movement.

There’s a hidden hand in this scummy indictment of Rickroller Perry:

B-U-S-H.

Who’s probably running for President in 2016?  Jeb Bush.

Who was Governor of Texas before the Rickroller?  George W. Bush.

Who is running for a statewide office this year in Texas?  George P. Bush, the eldest son of Jeb Bush.

I wouldn’t doubt at all that the Bushes still have enough steam in Texas politics to help Democrats engineer an attempted kneecapping of the Rickroller.  Cui Bono?  Or rather, who is the first and immediate beneficiary of the Rickroller’s Presidential campaign being rent asunder?

Jeb Bush.





Glad Not to Know You

It’s amazing, isn’t it?  Working for or around Lois Lerner makes one astronomically more likely to experience a hard drive crash, causing you to lose data that just so happens not to have been backed up.

I’m glad I don’t know Lois Lerner.





Because Pen and Phone

I think Obama will lose this lawsuit.

Won’t matter, though.  He’ll ignore the courts.

Because, pen and phone.

I don’t even know if impeaching and removing him would do any good.  He’d just use the pen and phone to order the Federal men with guns not to remove him.

Turns out separating the executive and legislative powers and giving the executive branch all the law enforcement and military power was the big mistake of the 1787 Constitution.

If the pen and phone is here to stay, then political campaigns going forward should be entirely about Who-Whom, who gets to use the pen and phone on whose behalf.  No more right wing Ron Paul style abstract wonkery about saving a dying document.  Since the 1787 Constitution is dying, we better make sure we have a Vladimir Putin style figure, a patriotic populist nationalist white man, with his butt in that chair behind the Resolute Desk and his hands on the pen and phone on the day it officially dies.

And now that I said “Putin,” I know that lauraagudelo272, whose WordPress avatar has a head picture of Putin, will like this post.





Smoking President

Here’s your smoking gun:

The smoking gun is the fact that Barack H. Obama II is President.

 





Point and Sputter Spring

Washington, D.C.

I feel for you.  I really do.  And I’m not being glib, which, considering the nature of the author of almost all of the posts in this space, is something I do have to make perfectly clear.

Yes, Mr. Obama, I said perfectly clear.

So consider this very friendly fire.

For what?  Let’s say you get what you want, the rally convinces all the people in the highest levels in American elected government to resign.  The people who replace them may well be worse, simply because getting rid of questionable people leading a bad system doesn’t do anything to solve the bad system.

Then what?  This reminds me of the massive D.C. rally the Tea Party Movement had in D.C. on Labor Day 2009.  And what became of all that energy?  The RINOs benefited from it, rode the wave to a red wave election the next year, then drove all that energy into the ground so that the Stupid Party donor class could have the run of the joint.  That’s the assessment you have to make right now if you’re being honest, notwithstanding how the present and future low level civil war within the Republican Party turns out.

This gives me the opportunity to get something off the tip of my tongue that’s been brewing there for a few weeks.  This protest has as its main motivation the Cliven Bundy question, and about that, there’s been something that’s been bothering me, something I haven’t been able to translate into readable English until this morning.

There is next to nobody outside of whack job leftists who approves of what the Feds are trying to do to Bundy, or the Feds’ actions in our low level 2.0 version of the Sagebrush Rebellion.  Among us racialists, those of us who don’t consider the Bundy affair a big deal aren’t fretting about it not because we approve of what the Feds are doing, but because it’s not one of our core concerns.

Also consider that the Bundy question is just the most recent proxy in the long standing chronic scandal of the abuse of public power, and the anarcho-tyrannical application of power.  Something which again nobody approves of or wants, and most everyone wants to stop.

On one side of the fence, you have an abused public that doesn’t approve of being abused and wants it to stop.  On the other side of the fence, you have increasingly abusive governments that get worse and more outrageous by the year.

Why the disconnect?  Why haven’t the the people on the first side of the fence been able to impose its will on people on the second side of the fence?  With public opinion firmly on our side, we should be much further along in the practical politics of the matter.  But the better it gets for us on the ground, the worse it gets on the other side of the fence.  The more we recognize the problem of the abuse of public power and the more angry we get about it, the less able are we to solve it and stop it.

I have what I think is a really good theory to explain the disconnect, or to explain our pointing and sputtering.  Before I tell you what it is, which I will in this post, I want to solicit some of your opinions and theories.

UPDATE 5/25

Okay, you’ve had ten days.  Some of the theories you submitted in the comment section are valid and I think are part of the explanation.  But I think there’s a better explanation:

It’s the libertarian cult, which is a subset of the cult of ideological rectitude.  It’s getting worse because the people that want to make it better can’t break out of their shell of cult ideology.  If someone who presents him or her self for public office is going to say or imply that we have to get rid of Medicare in order for the BLM not to abuse Cliven Bundy, then of course you know how most voters will react.  There should have already been a million riots and revolutions before now for all the shit that’s being done to us, but let the SSA propose that next year’s Social Security checks be $1 a month less than this year’s, and the old people will riot, mark me.

Things will start to get a lot better for Cliven Bundy and everyone like him the first time a politician says to the voting public that government should do Medicare but not do BLM abuse of Cliven Bundy, that one has nothing to do with the other.  We’ll start moving the ball forward once we break free of the liberTARDian cult and the other ideological cults.

 

 





RINO Battlespace Preparation

15 04 2014

Springfield, Virginia

The story.

The really curious thing is this:  Why him, why now?  Especially when his days in elected politics are over.

I have a theory.

Before I state my theory, I have to remind you of my theory that IRSgate is a bipartisan scandal, because that plays into where my mind is running.

Then take a look at this.  It’s not just the WSJ and NR, it’s also Jennifer Rubin at the WaPo and Sheldon Adelson that have recently geared up to put up a RINO shield between the Rand Paul and the Republican nomination for President.  Not for the reason he shouldn’t win the nomination, because he’s open borders and amnesty all the way.  That they won’t talk about, because that’s also their position, with the possible exception of NR, and their immigration agenda in spite of not being the worst possible still isn’t anything to write home about.  No, the reason they’re out to get Rand Paul is because he’s Ron Paul’s son, and they’re worried that apple has not rolled far enough away from tree on foreign policy, even though that apple has been doing nothing but rolling away from the tree ever since he started running for the Senate, and by the time 2016 comes around, Rand will be far closer to the neos than his father.  However, that still won’t make the neos happy, when they have a reliable lifer in Jeb Bush rather than a Johnny-come-lately in Rand Paul.  The invade the world neos have made the decision that they far more trust a brother and son of two people named George Bush than a son of Ron Paul.

So mash the two together, RINO sway in IRS politics and RINO fear of Rand Paul.

What does it add up to?

If the IRS can find dirt or quasi-dirt or anything questionable related to Ron Paul and the Campaign For Liberty, they’ll pounce, the media will pounce, and some of the splat will land in Rand Paul’s lap.

And that’s what the RINOs are hoping for.
