Evidently nobody

“Evidently nobody” is the answer to the age old question, “quis custodiet ipsos custodes,” who will watch the watchmen themselves?  Given the state of confusion, collusion and corruption in the once vaunted FBI, charged with protecting the nation from foreign spies and domestic criminals, the American Republic is wandering around naked and intoxicated in a Mad Max world.

Consider the case of Robert Manson, an FBI counterterrorism supervisor, who went out drinking with strippers, took one back to his room, she steals his gun, his watch ($6,000 Rolex, no less!), and his cash, and the next morning he’s still too drunk to file the police report himself.  Shades of the Secret Service Colombia scandal.  I can only hope he is no longer employed by either the FBI or by anybody else connected with national security, but I wouldn’t be surprised if my hopes are unfounded.

Such spectacular incompetence is bad enough, particularly in these dangerous times and at these very elevated levels, but what is coming out now is, oh, so very much worse. Not, mind you, that there’s any dearth of garden variety, egregiously stupid corruption

Of the many astonishing revelations now emerging from the Russia investigation, not enough has been made of the fact that Peter Strzok — that Zelig of the FBI who mysteriously appeared at every controversial moment — was second in command for counterintelligence.

That’s right, counterintelligence — that activity “designed to prevent or thwart spying, intelligence gathering, and sabotage by an enemy or other foreign entity.”

And yet that same Mr. Strzok was conducting a clandestine extra-marital affair with an FBI colleague over thousands of text messages that could be and likely were (more of that in a moment) intercepted by those same foreign intelligence agencies — or were, at the very least, recklessly exposed to them.

Now you don’t have to be James Jesus Angleton or even have read a novel by John le Carré to know one of the most important vulnerabilities in the intel world is just such dangerous liaisons, frequently used for blackmail of all sorts.

Yet, our second in command in counterintelligence conducted his in full digital view of anyone and did so replete with idiotically extreme comments about the president of the United States that would make our Peter a prime candidate for blackmail.

Well, no wonder the FBI went easy on Hillary “What Difference Does It Make?” Clinton.  Given that she was slated to be next President and the high mortality rate among those who cross her, it would seem only prudent to go with the flow, but especially as his own idiocy placed him in a weak and vulnerable position.  Who’d ‘a thunk it?

So former FBI Director Mueller, the staunch, the incorruptible, the supremely competent, who had his finger firmly on the pulse of the FBI during the lamentable previous Administration, not only saw nothing, heard nothing, did nothing and had nothing to say about all this, but is now in charge of a plenipotentiary, unbounded investigation into the doings of his former underlings’ political nemesis.  Lordy, Lordy!  What could go wrong?

That depends on you point of view.  Something is going wrong for the Mueller investigation because after all these months and tens of millions of dollars he has turned up one low level Trump campaign worker who was fired by the campaign:  basically bupkis.  After all the Russia collusion ballyhoo the Donks are beside themselves to discover that, well, they were the ones doing all the colluding.  The double standard doesn’t allow us to call that treason, and that’s a problem too.

The bigger problem is that this is a problem that Congress created for itself when it refused to exercise its powers and prerogatives during the previous Administrations by allowing Lois Lerner to walk away, allowing her replacement, Director Koskinen to thumb his nose at them and allow James Comey to flaunt his disregard for the law.  It should never have been a case of Mueller, who is clearly a Democratic agent, being allowed to conduct a political witch hunt in the the Executive branch but rather a case of Congress hauling these malefactors before them, investigating them till their underwear smoked, charging them with contempt of Congress if they fail to appear and cooperate, then sending them to prison if found guilty.

Our government has three branches: Legislative, Executive and Judicial; they are not, contrary to common opinion, co-equal.  Congress has the authority to impeach for cause members of both the Executive and Judicial branches, NOT the reverse.  This is appropriate because Congress is directly responsible to the source of all political power, We The People.  It is WE who need to demand that Congress do their damned jobs and straighten this mess out.

Who watches the watchmen themselves?  We The People, and don’t you forget it.  More importantly, don’t allow your elected representatives to forget it, as they clearly have.

Remind them.

Do it now.

The peasants are revolting

The politics, they is ‘a changin’.  That a normal thing, it really can’t be held static for long.  If politics is the art people working to get what they want without killing each other (the Clinton’s not withstanding) then the effects of political decisions will change the things that people want.  Decisions have consequences.  For a very long time now American politics have been a kind of dance where we’ve been taking two or three zigs to the left followed by one or two zags to the right.

The end result is that we are far, far to the left of where we started.  The Donks pushing us to the left still want the Revolution that will transfer the power from We the People to We the Right Sort of People.  A great many Republicans, especially those elected to public office, have decided that they want to be the Right Sort of People too.  I can see the attraction.  The Right Sort of People seem to wind up with the most laurels of media approval and the most goodies under the table.  We the People simply can’t compete with those kinds of incentives.  Oh, well, too bad about us.

That’s heady stuff, and some people can’t get enough of it.  That’s probably why Facepalm Feinstein has announced that she once again running for the US Senate.  She’s 84, and if re-elected she would be 91 at the end of her term.  Any sane person would have retired long ago and counted all the Federal loot she’s managed to funnel into Blum Capital, her husband’s investment firm.  Nope, just can’t get enough of Power, Plaudits and Plunder, can you Di?  You go, Geritol Girl!

I wonder if she consulted with Donna Brazile before making that decision?  Probably not, Donna’s been busy writing her death warrant cum suicide note expose of the 2016 Clinton campaign.  My guess is that Donna decided to put pen to paper right about the time somebody in the Demon-cratic Party realized that the Russia investigation was going to unleash a sewer tsunami from Chappaqua instead of Trump Tower.  Oops.  Who could have seen that coming?

So Donna’s taking one for Team Democrat, essentially ending her own political career to throw Hillary and her ghouls under the bus.  Will it be enough to save the Democratic Party?  I don’t think so.  But not to worry, like Monty Python’s Black Knight, the Progressive zombies are still going to press to the left, with their battle cry, “‘Tis but a scratch.  More Brains for Socialism!”

What has become obvious is that We the People are not We the Peasants we’ve been told we were, and we getting set to change things.  It is no accident that so many go along to get along Republicans are deciding that now is a good time to retire.  Tuesday’s election in Virginia will probably convince more to follow suit rather than face defeat next November.  How all that will play out remains to be seen.  What is clear is that the lock-step death march into the Marxist abyss is faltering.

Now to turn it around.

Immigration pt. 2

Anybody who’s halfway honest about it knows that the Donks are leading the charge on aiding and abetting the unrestrained invasion of America; they have good reasons for doing so.  They are suffering the unintentional consequences of believing their own lies.

Having been wholly subverted by Communist influence operations the Democratic Party became the front line shock troops in the Soviet directed Gramscian long march through the institutions.  One of the effects of that was a Darwinian catastrophe: the Left has largely failed to propagate itself by the natural process of family formation.  Statistically, Liberals have fewer children than the mainstream population.  As a result they need to import a voter base because they are not producing their own.  They are perfectly well aware that the vast majority of immigrants, whether legal or not, tend to favor a larger government with more generous social benefits, thus tend to vote Democrat.  Despite total control of the educational system they are in demographic decline.  A big part of this failure to thrive is in no small measure due to having enacted policies such that most of their future voter base is going down the abortionist’s drain.

Whereas once the majority of immigrants flocked to America for the freedom and opportunity to make more of themselves than they ever could in their native place, Democrats now attract future Democrat voters with the promise of government supplied benefits: the welfare state.  Milton Friedman famously described this as a suicide pact. The Donks are well aware of this, but it has always been their policy to buy votes they could not otherwise earn by promising ‘free” goodies paid for with other people’s money.  A legal immigrant must agree to not avail himself of welfare benefits for the first few years of his residence in the US, an invader can walk in, claim benefits and receive them immediately.  Because the welfare system has been deliberately designed to lock people into it, nearly half of illegals are still receiving benefits five years on.

The fact that it is fiscally insane is not lost on the Party of Destruction, its a feature, not a bug.  Back in 1966 two radical East coast academics, Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven, dissatisfied with the glacial pace of the ‘inevitable’ revolution, devised a method to hurry it along.  Overload the institutions, compel them to deal with far more than they were ever designed to and so force them into eventual collapse.  Aimed at the welfare system, it nearly succeeded in driving New York into bankruptcy in 1975.  Although the strategy failed to bankrupt both the City and State of New York in 1975 due to prompt and determined action by the Governor of New York, Hugh Carey.

Despite the smoke the Donks blow about concern tor the poor streaming across our borders the mass migration they are fostering is right out of the Cloward-Piven playbook.  Load up the American welfare state with millions of new cases until it is forced into collapse.  The fact is that Immigration and Customs Enforcement is in crisis, the Immigration courts are in crisis, the school system is in crisis, the prison system is in crisis, the welfare system is in crisis.   This cascading crisis is the result of an unceasing influx of foreigners demanding more benefits from a system with ever scarcer resources.  Once these people begin to vote, which is already happening; whether or not they are citizens; they vote themselves the largesse, their entitlements, they feel is their due.

The important question here is not, “How long can this go on,” but rather, “How much longer will you, American citizen, permit this to go on?”  Hence the importance of the upcoming dinner talk this Friday.

The next Republican Club dinner talk will be on Friday October20, 2017 at 6:30 PM.

Where vultures gather

These days the vultures gather in Las Vegas Washington and Sacramento.

In nature, an honest vulture will circle a dying animal high above and wait for it to die, vultures not being notoriously murderous birds, nor brave.  Once it stops twitching they swoop down on the hapless corpse, say grace and dig in.  They nurture themselves on the substance of the dead.

Democrats are much like vultures.  They circle high above, vigilant and attentive to the normal people they consider  beneath them, their prey.  Then when tragedy strikes, they swoop down, full of moral indignation and righteous sanctimony to advance their unholy agenda, nurturing their ambitions on the substance of the living.

Having been possessed by the sulphurous, reeking spirit of Marxist Leninism the Democratic Party is a party of carrion eaters.  To be sure, they are far more proactive than vultures, as they see it as a moral imperative to insure by their policies an ample and endless supply of corpses.

The Left in general, and the Democratic Party in particular, is an un-indicted co-conspirator in every human tragedy that afflicts America, and are the willing – nay, eager – partners with the Prince of Darkness.  In God’s good time they will share the devil’s doom; God grant that it be soon.

As is Standard Operating Procedure, the Donks are calling for more ‘gun control’.  May as well advocate for more pitchfork control when satan comes out to play.  Strange how they never urge America to more self control.  Las Vegas is unquestionably a tragedy for those present and for the nation, but is less of a tragedy than the travesty of Chicago which produces a bumper crop of corpses every week as it has for years?

Vulture Democrats won’t use Chicago’s gruesome statistics to justify their need to disarm Americans, probably because it is precisely their failed policies which have elevated Chicago to the murder capital of the United States.  Make no mistake about it, they need to disarm us.  They need is helpless before the criminal underclass and the tyrannical upper class.

One of the topics to be discussed in the upcoming October Dinner Talk will be the use of the telephone to impress citizen’s views on the minds of elected officials.  They are driven by ambition to power, which, as the Republic is currently constituted, depends on at the very least not alienating those voters which can alone grant them that power.
