My mystification grows along with the growth of what I see as the absurdity of leftism. My life has its own level of absurdism (which is fairly high). While I recognize and often do attempt to justify it, I also recognize the sandy, slipping soil upon which my absurdities are grounded. I don’t imagine a political force being applied to impose my absurdities upon you and yours.
It appears to me that leftists have constructed a fantasy world which although beautifully hopeful, is also demonstrable impossible. The chink in the armor of their idea of fairness and equality doctrine is the essential nature of humanity. The universal failure of socialism, even when applied by the most humanitarian of intentions, i.e. religious organizations (Mormons), the founders of our country (Pilgrims), revolutionaries battling agains tyranny (Spartacus), always came down to the failure of the socialist policies put in place at those times. The nature of humanity which includes a fair dose of greed and amplified self-importance throws a wrench into the socialist gearbox. Beautiful intention evolves into a more self-protective form of tyranny, or oligarchy.
Individualism, which includes both freedom and exercising personally recognized and enforced responsibility, evaporates into the atmosphere of statist control.
It was a recognition of this infectious nature of government which inspired political philosophers all the way back to Socrates, who saw democracy (the goal of so many modern politics) and the “politic of mediocrity” which it actually is as America is currenty demonstrating. The irony of enforcing responsibility while admitting freedom was a goal for which the U.S. Constitution was forged to inspire and protect.
“We still suffer from not having a Constitution that guarantees its citizens economic rights” ~Barack Hussein oBama. The Constitution, he explains, is a “charter of negative liberties…(it)… says what the states can’t do to you (and) what the federal government can’t do to you, but doesn’t say what the federal government or state government must do on your behalf.” Thus, apparently, the need to rewrite the Constitution, which in spite of the magnificent wisdom of our pRESIDENT oBama, does indeed say what the federal government must do on our behalf. The difference being that our founders recognized personal responsibility and left that up to the persons. Responsibility is tails on the freedom coin, one can’t be taken away without the other.
The fantasy evolves and the mystery grows.
Hillary clinton had 60,000 governmental emails on a private server which was against the law. Certainly there was motivation for this. HilLIARY isn’t stupid… well… anyway.
It’s become obvious she was selling access to her future regime, and she wanted access to that activity eliminated. In spite of the fact that neither the state department, the FBI nor her democrat supporters seem to care. Of those 60,000 missing emails, HilLIARY did turn over half. The other 30,000? Well, no problem apparently. They were just HilLIARy using state department email to talk about barbecuing hot dogs and Chelsea’s wedding plans. And she wouldn’t lie about that.
The bottom line seems to be that her private server(s) would be far easier to hack than the state department server. The FBI and the state department refuse to look into this obvious probablility. However Comey DID report that she’s a dumbass and a liar.
Which leads us to now. Wikileaks is turning up evidence that DNC emails are being hacked. Yes, the DNC nomination was hacked and we’re seeing what a backstabbing, dishonest bunch the DNC is behind what they thought were closed doors. They’re telling us it was the Russians that hacked the DNC. Which it may have been, but…
At this poing the truth of the matter is irrelevant (as it always is when democrats are involved). The Trumpster brilliantly steps up, right on time, with the comedic magnificence of revealing the absurdity of all this, by making an absurd (yet completely logical) joke, that we should check with Russia for HilLIARY’s missing emails…
Hell, maybe we SHOULD!
One often wonders at what to say after having been nicely fucked.
“We do assess that hostile actors gained access to the private commercial email accounts of people with whom secretary Clinton was in regular contact from her personal account” ~FBI director James Comey
“The system is rigged. General Petraeus got in trouble for far less. Very very unfair! As usual, bad judgment” ~Donald Trump
“FBI director said Crooked Hillary compromised our national security. No charges. Wow!” ~Donald Trump
“The lack of intent to harm our country is irrelevant. People never intend the bad things that happen due to gross negligence” ~ Former federal prosecutor Andrew C. McCarthy, who accused Comey of essentially rewriting the law to clear Clinton because the statute does not mention intent.
“Many Dems don’t care if Dems break the law (ends justify means); others are so brainwashed they will never believe Hillary broke the law” ~ David Limbaugh
“Damning. She’s disqualified. You can vote for her, but she’s a danger to the national security of US because of her recklessness” ~Hugh Hewitt
“Rule of law? What rule of law? Rule of law is for schmucks” ~Monica Crowley
“Today Comey & Obama’s DOJ made it clear to the American people there’s no accountability no justice & the Clintons live by different rules” Sen. Rand Paul.
“The #FBI recommends no charges & yet there is evidence of potential violations regarding the handling of classified info. Unbelievable” ~former U.S. Ambassador John Bolton
“If Hillary were still Sec State, Pres O would have to fire her. But instead, he travels with her and seeks to promote her. Disgusting.” and “Bottom line: Hillary is reckless, careless and has poor judgement, but she’s not a criminal. Which means she’s likely to be our next POTUS.” former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer.
“The FBI decision shows once again how the Clintons and others at the top get to live by a different set of rules from everyone else” ~Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif.
“FBI recommends no further action.. good thing there’s an Atny General who will uphold rule of law. Oh wait she just met with Bill” ~Eric Bolling
“Let’s face it, a republican who faced such allegations would be forced to withdraw candidacy, irrespective of criminal charges” ~Daniel Horowitz
“People never INTEND to act with “gross negligence”. That’s the whole point of the law!” ~Larry O’Connor
“They will do everything in their power to get Clinton into the White House.” and, “So glad Comey was able to take care of Hillary’s awkward little investigation right before Obama campaigned with her” ~Dana Loesch
“Clinton had emails marked Special Access Program (beyond Top Secret). Put nat’l security at risk. Unfit to be POTUS” ~Gov. Scott Walker, R-Wisc.
and, “If you think Comey got it right, please note he called her a liar” ~John Podhoretz
“Laws Are for Little People: Comey delivers an indictment but won’t seek one” ~Wall Street Journal editor James Taranto.
“Hillary is a liar. We’ve seen it many times. The question is whether that will matter enough to people to cost her the election. I say no” ~Jedediah Bila.
“Obama DOJ: James Rosen is a criminal co-conspirator but Hillary Clinton should be the next President of the United States. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯” ~Katie Pavlich.
“Hillary’s got her fig leaf. That’s all that matters to the media” and, “Obama on a plane with Hillary as Comey prepares to exonerate her is like Michael Corleone taking confession as Clemenza murders his enemies.” ~Ben Shapiro.
“WP: ‘For a candidate already badly struggling on questions of whether she is honest and trustworthy… Comey’s comments are devastating” ~Majority Whip Sen.John Cornyn.
“Clinton compromised natl security but we can’t think about revoking her security clearance bc she might be President. Fantastic.” and, “Saying HRC didn’t “intend” to compromise natl sec. w server setup is like chugging a fifth of rum & saying you didn’t intend to get drunk” ~Amanda Carpenter
“Hillary may not be POTUS, but she’ll be on the Winter Olympic team for ice skating, no one has successfully skated on more thin ice than her” ~Former Gov. Mike Huckabee, R-Ark.
“The FBI’s decision regarding Clinton’s mishandling of classified emails once again proves that she is DQ’d from being Commander in Chief” Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla.
While it seems quite likely that Omar Siddiqui Mateen had been exposed to the anti-gay proclivities of the Muslim community, himself having been gay. It seems quite likely that his attack was less focused on killing gays and more on killing the largest number of “infidels” possible in the shortest time. While the main-stream media [propagandia] is using this narrative to make the absurd claim that the NRA, white Christians, and anti-gay G.O.P. are as much to blame for the attack as is Omar Siddiqui Mateen himself. Islam itself escapes their scrutinization completely, of course.
It is almost fun to notice the absurdities they spew, “toxic masculinity,” “Here’s what the Christian right’s got to wrestle with: They’re only a few points behind the Orlando shooter on the same political spectrum.” (note, they name him “Orlando shooter” because his name, Omar Siddiqui Mateen, sounds far too Muslim)
However as we examine this “tragedy, (atrocity actually) we see that Omar Siddiqui Mateen researched other targets, i.e. Disney World. Omar Siddiqui Mateen didn’t mention “gays” when he called 911 to announce his intent and why he was killing. What he did mention was his allegiance to ISIS and Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and that he was doing this in solidarity with the Boston Marathon Bombers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev and Moner Mohammad Abu-Salha (names you’ve not likely heard mentioned by the propagandia).
What value to the American establishment would the whole and real story be? Very little… “Thanks NRA!” “Thanks anti-gay political community!” “Thanks Donald Trump!!!”
The largest Islamic terrorist attack since 9/11 has awakened before our very eyes the greatest political absurdity this country has ever seen. The history of Islamic terrorism is a blaring orchestra of evidence that there is a particular problem with the Islamic faith relative to all followers of other faiths, including those followers of none. The “convert or destroy” pillar of the faith alone makes it more than a simple choice of faiths to follow.
Islam goes beyond merely disapproving of homosexuality. Sharia teaches that homosexuality is a vile form of fornication, punishable by death. i.e. Quran (7:80-84) – “…For ye practice your lusts on men in preference to women: ye are indeed a people transgressing beyond bounds…. And we rained down on them a shower (of brimstone)”. Our pRESIDENT, followed by the democrat party and the American main-stream media [propagandia] refuses to face the obvious, and from the left we see, “Thanks NRA,” ~New York Daily; “We are to blame, not Islamic terrorism, for massacre” ~Barrack Hussein oBama.
If it is US who is to blame, it is due to the lunacy of the America left. Since 9/11 we’ve seen well over 11,000 deaths and well over 20,000 serious injuries caused by Islamic terrorism worldwide. We Americans are witnessing a serious challenge to our founding principle “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,” embodied by a religion (???), and our pRESIDENT blames us? The propagandia blames the NRA?? The absurdity we see here is even more frightening than the convert or destroy intentions of Hezballah, Taliban, Abu Sayyaf, Al -Qa’ida, Al-Shabaab, Al-Sharia, Boko Haram, Hamas, Jemaah Islamiya, Lord’s Resistance Army, Lashkar-E-Jangvi, Haqqani Network, and on and on we could go…
“It’s a strike at the heart and soul of who we are as a nation. It’s an assault on the ability of free people to live their lives, love who they want, and express their identity. It’s an attack on the right of every single American to live in peace and safety in their own country.
We need to respond to this attack on America as one united people, with force, purpose, and determination. But the current politically correct response cripples our ability to talk and to think and act clearly. We’re not acting clearly, we’re not talking clearly, we’ve got problems” ~Donald Trump.
Once again Donald Trump dances on the incompetence of our current administration, the main-stream propagandia, and the hands over our eyes infantilism of the American left… the democrat party.
We are at war wearing blindfolds…
I must admit that this presentation is a bit outdated… The Trump v Cruz conflict is over and done. But the presentation is marvelous. I relish the discovery of a new conservative reference, and one with humor amplifies my relishment. So my recommendation is to check Intellectual Froglegs out!: Intellectual Froglegs

Finally… after decades of Republican Milquetoast behavior towards the biggest enemy the traditional American values of freedom/responsibility have ever faced (the main-stream press [propagandia]), a Republican presidential nominee goes bold and heroic. A two fisted attack, referring to this enemy, face to face, with the reality they represent. That they are, as a group AND individually, “dishonest,” “not good people,” sleazy comprise of the worst human beings he has ever met. “I don’t mind scrutiny. What I don’t like is lies!” And Bacon’s swelling admiration and support of Donald Trump was magnified again.
The most fascinating aspect of this is the reaction of political commentators and political reporters. I am aware of only one who recognized the intelligence and magnificence of Trump’s action here. Trump’s magnificent success in the political arena goes hand in hand with his success in the business world. The man is bold, humanitarian, and highly intelligent. Donald Trump knows what he is doing. His mantra “make American great again” resounds magnificently amongst the American people. The institutions responsible for bringing America to its knees (professional politicians [the executive welfare class], the education system, the entertainment industry) is represented most magnificently by the main-stream media.
Trump was reacting to the propagandia attempting to twist what should, by all legitimate reason should have been a very positive story, Trump’s extensive benevolence and charitable contributions. Particularly directed, as they are, towards one of the most abused and disrespected classes of citizens in America, the Veterans.
Rather than pointing at the essential humanitarianism of what Trump has done for the veteran community, for whom his support has long been unwavering, the media attempted to smear his efforts. And, OF COURSE, not one word from the media about the lack of charitable activity to be seen on the left, (i.e. Hellary, Sanders) where benevolence tends more towards forcing the taxpayer to be Santa Claus. Respect for the Americans who have laid their lives on the line for the freedom which has lived in the most exceptional country in history (sorry democrats, it.s true)… our veterans, is vibrant in the Donald Trump camp. The propagandias’ “scrutiny” is reserved for Republicans.
Donald Trump is on the warpath, and the victims so far, are the executive welfare class (professional politicians, left and right), and more importantly the absolute figurehead of what is wrong with America, the institutional dragging of American tradition through the sewer pond of agitprop and deception, and what is, just as Trump describes it, “…the most dishonest people that I have ever met, I have to tell you.” And WORSE…
The leftist lies are flowing and the Trump whistle is blowing!
Oh yeah, by the way, the single commentator who recognized Trump’s brilliance here?
“A hero is someone who understands the responsibility that comes with his freedom” ~Bob Dylan.
Donald Trump announces a list of potential Supreme Court judges whith includes:
Judge William Pryor of the Atlanta-based federal appeals court, who has called the landmark Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion nationwide the “worst abomination in the history of constitutional law.”
Joan Larsen, served in the Justice Department office that produced the legal justifications for the enhanced interrogation techniques, including waterboarding, that critics have called torture.
Judge Steven Colloton, ruled for faith-affiliated groups that challenged Obama administration rules giving women covered by the groups’ health plans access to cost-free contraceptives.
One of the most notable things about Trump’s list is the main stream propagandias reaction to it. Absolute horror! These horrid possibilities are, of all the damnable things… Constitutionally oriented! Oh MY…
The propagandia takes great pains to consider their qualifications… not. New York Times, ABC News, NBC News, CNN, NPR, MPR… point out the terrifying facts that:
*“Several are favorites of CONSERVATIVE legal scholars.”
*One worked for the Bush White House’s office of FAITH BASED INITIATIVES, where he pushed to keep a monument of the Ten Commandments on public property [gasp] and keeping the words “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance.
*several have QUESTIONED abortion RIGHTS! [Questioned?? My God that’s despicable!]
*Judge Gruender supported a law requiring doctors to actually tell women the obvious truth that abortions “terminate the life of a whole, separate, unique living human being.” [God NO!!!]
*Judge Prior has DENOUNCED Roe v. Wade as having manufacured, “a constitutional right to murder an unborn child.” Radical extremism indeed!
*Nan Aron, the president of the liberal Alliance for Justice Action Council, says Trump’s choices are “DANGEROUS,” and includes “open hostility to Americans’ rights and liberties…” [You know the right to murder unwanted children, the right to decide how much to pay your employees, the right to drive an S.U.V., etc.]
*The list includes some of the most extreme conservatives on the federal bench today. Shudder!
*Ed Whelan, former clerk to Justice Scalia reserved judgement about whether conservatives should trust Mr. Trump to follow through on what he says…
*Some of Trump’s conservative critics remain doubtful. Erick Erickson, conservative blogger says, “He will waffle, he will backtrack, and he simply cannot be believed.”
*Taken together, the records of these potential Trump nominees reflect a radical-right ideology that threatens fundamental rights, and that favors the powerful over everyone else, especially people from historically marginalized communities.
*A Trump nominee in any of those seats would cement CONSERVATIVE [horrors] domination of the court for years, if not DECADES.
*”Donald Trump releases ALL WHITE list”!!! “Trump’s LGBT-Unfriendly Supreme Court Picks.” [gasp, he’s a racist?!]
*The majority are MEN!!! [cough, he’s a sexist?!]
*”Donald Trump’s list of potential Supreme Court nominees are a woman’s worst nightmare. Their records reveal a lineup of individuals who would likely overturn Roe v. Wade if given the chance, gutting what’s left of abortion access in this country and heaping punishment on women.”
I could go on… and on… and on, but what is notable here is that the swing of the propagandistic pendulum ends somewhere left of center. One, as usual, has to move outside of the coverage we get from the main stream propagandia to hear anything positive or from a conservative point of view. Our modern search engines require some amount of effort to find any topic not considered to be “politically correct” (left wing). In the case of Google, on the 4th page of results, #30 in the pile, to find a link to http://redalertpolitics.com/ which is a political site run by young conservatives. Finally one runs into something more complete and compelling in reference to the possibilities:
*”Trump picks judge who trolled him on Twitter for SCOTUS” where it’s pointed out that not all Trump’s choices were in Trump’s pocket.
*”Utahn on Trump’s list of his top Supreme Court picks.”
*”Trump’s Supreme Court Picks Could Bring Real-World Experience.”
There is a hidden beauty in the propaganda mechanisms the left has in place, which is that we can easily determine what the motivators of statist expansion and increased restriction of freedom/responsibility are hoping for the people to believe. Recognition of this, which is increasing thanks in large part to Trump thumbing his nose at the same media representative that have typically had Republicans trembling in their candles. Had the Right been reacting aggressively to the lies and distortions of the left and their guns in the media, the medias gunsmanship would have evaporated years ago…
