Political Toadies and a Broken Down System
All the Statesmen are dead. The worst of society rise to the top of the food chain. Habitual liars run for civic office and the most skilled prevaricator gain seniority. The shyster class runs roughshod over the jurisprudences for the benefit of the enablers of the corrupt criminal syndicate. Alas, public meetings still start with the pledge of allegiance, but the words no longer have meaning – the Republic is officially dead. The emperor in chief needs no consent to wage war; he is above all sanction. Mourning over the corpse will only get you on the no fly list.
Celebrate with your other comrades and political lackeys, you won. The last of the free sovereign citizens are scheduled to report for a re-education camp. The only growth industry left is the incarceration compound. Coordination among private prisons, state and federal jails and FEMA complexes run on railroad time. Cattle car conversions with natural air conditioning should suffice, the sheeple always follows the leader. Mixing different breeds of animals in the same cage is kosher, in this "TC" environment.
Make merry and rejoice with the privileged, they really know how to party. All ass-kissers have a place at this table. The screams of delight drown out the howls of the broken. The round table of loyal servants has no sharp edges. The establishment tolerates only uniformity. The government serves the corporatists and the banksters, while the masses pay tribute to the state. The raw order of sheer power rings from all the towers. That crack in the old Liberty Bell widens and the ringer removed so no one can hear the sounds of the past.
No need to be depressed, others are enjoying this replay in the joy of terror. No secrets are too insignificant, if it involves the privacy of the individual, while, no lie is too big to be repeated if it makes excuses for the police state. Ha, Ha, Ha, the joke is on you.
Thanks to ‘I Own the World’, a little comic relief parody video, The Wanda Sykes' Obama Roast - If She Wasn't a Toady, bring smiles to Mr. and Mrs. Barry Soetoro. Too bad the harsh reality of the Obama administration gives serious observers little to laugh about.
Remember that the current Attorney ‘persecutor’ General, Eric Holder carried water for Janet Reno in the Clinton administration. Ken Berwitz writes,
"Is the disgraceful toady, and Obama sock puppet, Eric Holder, breaking the law by intentionally withholding information asked for by conservatives under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) - while promptly servicing left wing requests?J. Christian Adams thinks so, and has the specifics to make his case.
Adams' entire piece can be read by clicking here, and I urge you to do just that. But, meanwhile, here is a representative list of who is getting what, and when. See if you notice a pattern:"
Holder is the bookend of Janet Napolitano. Keep in mind, her true colors as stated in Napolitano doesn’t think Vets are extremists, just stupid.
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano on Sunday portrayed veterans as victims – not perpetrators – of right-wing extremism as she sought to combat the political controversy arising out of an April 14 (2009) Homeland Security memo warning that returning soldiers could be ripe for domestic terrorism participation.
Her response to the insult:
"The report is not saying that veterans are extremists. Far from it," Napolitano said on CNN’s State of the Union. "What it is saying is returning veterans are targets of right-wing extremist groups that are trying to recruit those to commit violent acts within the country. We want to do all we can to prevent that.""I regret that in the politicization of everything that happens in Washington D.C., some took offense," Napolitano said. "But when you read the report, what it was saying was, look, we have a threat of terrorism within our own shores, and one of the groups being targeted to see if they would be aligned with that are some of our veterans."
Next example is Hilda Solis in the article, Obama Administration Announces Not Enforcing Union Reporting Laws.
"Are you a union member trying to find out information of the criminal actions and shady financial dealings of your union? Well don’t expect Obama and his toady in the Labor Secretary’s office, Hilda Solis, to help you uncover any illegalities perpetrated by your union bosses.Solis’ department has just announced that it is suspending the stringent reporting requirements that labor unions must by law satisfy to assure that their financial dealings are legal and above-board. That’s right, unions have just been given a free pass for criminal actions by this president."
The last yes-men, a career GOP ‘pol’ of Whitewater scandal fame, former Rep. Jim Leach shows the bipartisan nature of the bootlicker.
"Leach represented a district in southeastern Iowa for 15 terms. As chairman of the NEH he has found it hard to leave politics behind. The NEH itself is of course supposed to be nonpartisan. In his capacity as chairman, however, Leach has become an Obama mouthpiece, courtier, toady, ninny, relentlessly promulgating the Obama administration line. Surely this is not what Congress had in mind when it created an agency to support the humanities."
What all these folks have in common is an ambidextrous ability to suspend righteous outrage and a fluid facility to survive by protecting the political system at all costs. Thinking and honest eyewitnesses of the betrayed constitution understand that the political culture is a root cause of our country’s demise. By today’s standards, Profiles in Courage, is a fairy tale. John F. Kennedy and the books scribe Ted Sorensen, are relics of an age long gone. Three of Senator’s acknowledged include:
• John Quincy Adams from Massachusetts, for breaking away from the Federalist Party.• George Norris from Nebraska, for opposing Joseph Gurney Cannon's autocratic power as Speaker of the House, for speaking out against arming U.S. merchant ships during the United States' neutral period in World War I.• Robert A. Taft from Ohio, for criticizing the Nuremberg Trials for trying Nazi war criminals under what Taft considered ex post facto laws.
The mores of the 19th and mid 20th century are foreign to the outlaws that hold office now. Crooks have always occupied public office. Yet, there are examples of men of character.
A contemporary of JFK was Richard Nixon. Neither men were saints; however, both fare well in comparison to the last four presidents. Nixon madly continued the Viet Nam disaster and his detractors would point to Watergate. However, he had the decency to resign.
The moral majority back in the heyday of Farwell and Robertson promoted a pro American viewpoint.
Thirty-five years later, the gospel message of moral character is silent. Only the promoters of fundraising appeals and the accountant’s 501 C3 filings are preached from most pulpits. The Pharisees that populate the secular congregations are eager to send their heretical voices to lobby on K Street.
The Obama presidency is a frightening expression of New Age sycophants. The election cycle never ends, while the transgressions of each regime exceed the abuses of the last. The world is falling apart at the seams before our eyes, as the political class siphons off the final residue of authentic wealth. Everything is up for sale, especially your dignity and integrity.
Bush Sr., Clinton, Bush Jr., Obama are simply rotating tyrants in a raging river posed to rush over the falls. None of these presidents were in control. The system is so entrenched in a fabricate despotism that most people are unable to emotionally deal with the prospects of a global gulag staring them directly in the face. They attempt to cope by perfecting their own denial. The inevitable bankruptcy of the paper chase financial fraud is too frightening to alter the collective behavior of society.
Allowing corporatists to dominate the economic landscape is a formula for feudal serfdom. When the Roman Empire ended, the barbarians were blamed, when the true cause was the implosion of an ingrained and corrupt imperial paper tiger. As our day of reckoning approaches, people want solutions. All they get is more debt piled on the insolvency of yesterday’s obligations. The elasticity of the balloon is about to pop.
When that time comes, the remaining audacious leaders, will hasten their own exit. However, there is no way out. The need for answers to save this nation is earnest, but is futile. As long as citizens condone or obey a broken down system, they exemplify the toadies that force their elite privileges upon the backs of the producers. If you really want answers, learn the meaning of the word NO. Raise hell, or be relegated by your timidity to the inferno of the Homeland.
With the death of Statesmen, all that is left are the Eric Holder’s, the Janet Napolitano’s, the Hilda Solis’ and the Jim Leach’s; and YOU. Look to yourself for answers, for real patriots give us justice.
