Questions

A good rule to live by in modern America is that you can never be too cynical. No matter how negative your view of something, particularly politics, you are most likely being naive or optimistic relative to reality. If you go back a few decades, you’ll find that every cynical joke about how things will get worse turned out to be sunny optimism, at least with regards to politics and culture. Sadly, the doomsday predictions about economics, meteor strikes and other catastrophes turned out to be false.

As the Biden – Ukraine story begins to unfold, that old rule about being too cynical starts to look prudent. The degree of corruption in the Obama years among the Democrats is beyond what even the cynical imagined. So far, this looks like Joe Biden, while Vice President, pressured the Ukrainian government to give his crooked son a pass on some crooked energy deal in Ukraine. Biden’s son was being paid fifty grand a month for what appears to be a no-show job in a business about which he knows nothing.

Financial shenanigans are nothing new in politics, but this rises to a whole new level, which raises the first question. How crooked were these people? It’s one thing to use your influence to pressure a business for favors to a relative or political ally. This appears to be an effort to manipulate foreign policy in an effort to funnel cash to the son of the sitting VP. This is much more flagrant and much more dangerous than shaking down a contractor or taking a bribe from a donor.

This is not some one-off thing with Biden’s kid. His crooked dealings in China have long been part of the background noise of the Democrat primary. He’s also been into shady dealings with domestic financial firms and lobbying shops. The picture that emerges is of the loser son, who uses his family name to facilitate get-rich-quick schemes. He’s protected from scrutiny by his famous father. This is not Hillary Clinton level corruption, but the flagrant and reckless way in which it has gone on is amazing.

Speaking of Clinton, the effluvia of corruption that surrounds Hillary Clinton’s time in the Obama administration adds some context. The assumption has been that she was selling favors out of the State Department while she was Secretary of State. She was also eyeball deep in the Uranium One scandal. You can’t help but notice how the old Soviet Union keeps playing a role in these stories. The whole Russian collusion narrative takes on a new meaning in light of these revelations.

Of course, this not only leads back to the Russian collusion hoax, but to another question that naturally flows from all of this. How stupid are these people? Take a look at the recent Biden flap. It has been known for a while that the Trump administration was trying to get that story in the media for a year. It was ignored for the obvious reasons, so they appear to have pushed this whistle blower story. The media took the bait, only to learn that it was not the smoking gun of impeachment they imagined.

Now, this may have been dumb luck on the part of Team Trump. In politics, it is better to be lucky than good. Luck in politics is to be blessed with very stupid opponents. That seems to be the case here, but at a much wider scale. Biden had been bragging in public about throwing his weight around with the Ukrainians when he was VP. Rudy Giuliani had been pushing this story for a year. It should not have been too hard for the media to see what was coming, but they fell for the story anyway.

The question of competence is even stronger when you bring in the seditious plot run by the FBI against Trump in 2016. There was never a reason to do this. All Clinton needed to do was run a reasonably competent race and make sure to grease the Democrat machines in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan. Instead they went for the insanely complicated entrapment plan. Cartoon super-villains in the movies are more sober minded with regards to their schemes than these people.

This brings up something else. Why did they go after Paul Manafort, who was also involved with the Ukrainians? The assumption has been that he was low hanging fruit, but now that it is clear Biden was involved in similar dealings with Ukraine, the case takes on a new dimension. Maybe going after Manafort was about protecting Biden and by extension the Obama administration. It could be serendipity, but if you were going to look into Biden’s corrupt dealings, paying a visit to Manafort in prison is a good idea.

When Hillary Clinton arrived in Washington, her first move was to seize the raw FBI files on the political class. At the time, it was alleged she did this to get dirt on Republicans, but everyone knows Republicans are harmless. Given that Clinton operatives eventually made it to the top of the FBI, it brings that scandal back to life. Is it possible that the point of that caper was to seed the FBI with Clinton operatives? Maybe that caper was really about turning the FBI into an arm of Clinton Inc.

That sort of thinking raises the obvious question as to the purpose of the Obama administration. It is looking more and more like it was taken over by Clinton cronies and Obama was just a decoration. The most cynical said Obama was a figurehead and the real power were left-wing ideologues. Maybe the real power was the Clinton graft machine that had slowly consumed the Democrat party and the political class of Washington. Team Obama was just assimilated by the Clinton Borg.

Every time a new rock is overturned, new questions arise about what went on in the Obama years. They always seem to have some connection to Hillary Clinton, which raises a lot of other questions. The main question, of course, is will we ever get the answers to any of this. The answer to that is where we started. You can never be too cynical these days, with regards to politics. That means we will never know the truth of these scandals and we will never reach the end of them either.

“How stupid are these people? ” In the late 90s I was a military aide in the Clinton White House. The answer to the above question is that these people are not stupid – far from it. President Clinton was probably the most brilliantly gifted man I’d ever met to that point. Hillary was incisively sharp. Their cling-on staffers weren’t brilliant – not by a long shot – but they all had one thing in common: hubris to the nth degree. And hubris makes people do incredibly stupid things.

As an aside, however, no can really give a good assessment of “intelligent” or “stupid”. Some people are brilliant in some aspects of life, but borderline retarded in others. IQ is a guesstimate at best. Education means little. Some of the dumbest people the Booby’s ever met are in academia and have PhDs, but some of the smartest, too.

Being a Jewboy myself I know a lot more about Jewish @$$holery than those who obsess about some public figure’s 25% Jewish ancestry.

It also cracks me up when the Jew-obsessed use the name “Shlomo” as a nickname for the malevolent Jew. A Jew named Shlomo (Solomon in English) is likely to be a Hasid, our Amish equivalent so to speak, who just wants to practice his odd customs, live in his insular community, be left alone, and is likely to be conservative politically. The Jews who cause problems are more likely to be named David, Jonathan, or Michael.

For all of Trump’s public flaws, grift/corruption does not appear to be a major problem for him. He has 10s of thousands of people who hate him with a fanaticism rarely seen.

I have mixed feelings on Churchill. I do admire his reaction to his disastrous brain-child – the Gallipoli campaign. He resigned as Lord Admiral, quit the government, and served for several years as an Infantry officer on the Western front.

Point of accuracy, since this one annoys me: spotted owls are not a distinct species or even subspecies; rather, about as different as black Labs and yellow Labs: Spotting is a recessive color pattern of barred owls, and they freely interbreed. Spotting is less viable (poorer camo in the woods) thus has remained rare, or as the econazis like to put it, “endangered”.

Alzaebo
Guest
Alzaebo

What’s that about camo?
Similar to “sociopaths can act normal, and are manipulative, even evincing piety, worth, or charm, yet while they hate you?”

Hmm. So patho-narcissism, a lack of empathy, would be the opposite tail of the spectrum. Patho-altruism is an over-abundance of empathy.

One feels nothing, and venerates itself, the other feels too much, and looks for approval.

Yet both can interbreed. Who is endangered, who is fit to the environment they create?

Some people make distinctions between psychopaths and sociopaths: psychopaths are born, sociopaths are made; psychopaths like to inflict suffering, sociopaths don’t care one way or another; and so on.

I wrecked my brain in 2014 trying to understand why the State Department orchestrated an overthrow of then Ukrainian government of Yanukovich. Of course he was Mugabe style corrupt, and a lot of Ukrainians joined that American made revolution. The fact that money and food was handed out to the participants attracted even more people and a new President was installed. This one was a “chocolate oligarch” and didn’t need to put so much into his own pocket. The next step was to arrange for billion $$ “loans” which were promptly laundered into we know now whose pockets.

Biden had been the personal face to Clinton’s rotten war on Serbs.

The First Christians (Syrian, Armenian, Greek, Anatolian, Chaldean, Koreshite Arab) and Jesus’ people, Aramaic-speaking urban Jews, are all accused of having accepted foreign gods (foreign culture, such as Greece, Rome or Persia), and must die.

Converso or Mennonite Ukrainian kulaks, Catholic Serbs, Orthodox Rus? Zoroastrian and Christian Persians? They must be consecrated (sacrificed and burned on the altar) unto the True Lord.

And he ain’t yours, heretics.

This is faith and prophecy, not Western reason. Indigene hindbrain thinking vs the frontal cortex thinking of the Aryan invaders.

The Left hears only the True Faith, and anything is permissible for the ultimate victory.

Islam and Communism are both modern branches of Abraham’s original faith.
Islam was dying, Communism came under attack in the Cold War, so Holocaustianity was introduced to save them.

It did. Their raiders are here.

Anna and Zman are correct, this is a demographic, religious war. On the hated Caucasian invaders.

You bet, Exile. Everyone forgets that HW Bush introduced the governor of Arkansa as a dark horse candidate, to the outcry of the old mainstream Democrats. “He’s too dirty!” they said.

Everyone also forgets that the former head of the CIA, HW Bush, cofounded Carlyle Group with partner George Soros.

Carlyle is the world’s largest equity fund, just as Adelson’s casinos are very good at laundering money.

If you open the Overton Window somewhat to consider Hillary and Obama action in Libya, you will find that the Libyan terrorists were funded and supplied by the Obama regime with the object of creating a Muslim Brotherhood State. Why?, Because they thought they could control it from the USA [ Clinton ] and Obama a traitor and Islamic.

Plus, (((Sarkozy))) got the oil, the EUSSR soviet got the gold, an oil bank, and shock troops.

Our and Israel’s contras got the weapons, the command heights of Golan, eyeing the oil of Mosul and the offshore natgas of Palestine and Cyprus. Anything to counter Russia’s South Stream and Iran’s north-south bypass.
Turkey’s Erdogan, of course, is playing all sides.

Egypt almost got an MBrotherhood caliph, and they’re trying again. The secular Baathist regimes of Syria and Iraq ruthlessly suppressed the Brotherhood, while protecting Christians.

At the risk of doxxing myself, I’ll admit to living in the greater Filthadelphia metro area so I hear a lot more about the Biden clan than the rest of the country. One thing that’s easy to underestimate is just how much of a scumbag Biden’s son is. Several years ago Biden’s other son was found to be suffering from an aggressive and terminal form of brain cancer. While he was dying in the hospital, his brother “Ukraine” Hunter was f*****g his wife. They pretended to be a couple for a while but not too long after his brother died… Read more »

The dead son is the one who was a JAG Corps lawyer in Iraq, right? I

The thing that gets me in our politics, now seeping into general life, is the atmosphere of nightmarish unreality.

Open and obvious corruption, persecution, and coup attempts. All airbrushed out of reality because the media is completely owned by the establishment and the Parenthesees.

And the Establishment hardly pretending to care any more. When they cover up their crimes, that’s good for them. But when Biden-level morons spill the beans, well, that’s also good–as a brutal flex on a populace powerless to do anything about it.

It’s all good in a one-party state.

That’s funny, never knew that former head scumbag Paul Ryan was either black or female! The Congress that has been selling us down the river for years on trade and immigration has long been majority white male. Bush clan, anyone? We have a corruption problem in DC, that’s pretty obvious. What we need are men and women of integrity, if they meet that criteria I’m not going to worry too much about skin color or sex.

Everything is a matter of degree. Granted, corruption is endemic – and wherever you have money and power, you are going to have at least some. But I remain correct – if you were to see – at the federal level – the level of corruption you see on the city councils of Detroit, Baltimore or New Orleans… the country would have blown up long ago. And look at the prime movers that are blowing up the Democrats today: AOC and her brainless hag squad. Warren and her fake indian crap… Obutthole tripled the national debt in 8 years.

Surely you jest. Look around you. 1/4 of North American women are on antidepressants and prescribed psychotropic drugs. They actually fight for the right to abort their own late term babies, and cut them up and sell the parts for profit and brag about making you pay for it. Women in pink pussy hats encourage their sons to emasculate themselves, and divorce their own men in divorce court after they’ve torn up their own families. The black moslem baboon they voted in to replace Bush fought for the rights of perverts to use the same washrooms as young girls. He… Read more »

And if plenty of white men and women didn’t agree with Obama, none of this would have passed. Who is currently making the US safe for H1Bs? Mike Lee, a white guy last time I checked. Got nothing against white guys, my dad was one, my husband, brothers in laws, son in law, son, uncles, cousins, grandparents. All wonderful men, the kind we need more of. But putting all the blame/responsibility elsewhere is not honest. Example, no woman would be able to have an abortion if a man wasn’t having unprotected sex with her.

Most women are prone to herd behaviour, and fall into socialism and fascism by nature. The founding fathers of the USA understood this, and wisely prohibited them from voting or holding positions of authority in government. Demographically speaking, if women didn’t vote, disastrous leaders like Obama and Hillary would have been laughed out of serious politics. As would their policies. Demographically speaking, women drive divisive policies like social justice, multiculturalism, victim politics, mass immigration, state censorship and will happily trade rights and freedoms in return for security – real or perceived. It is my contention that all such doings are… Read more »

Two words: Dunning-Kruger. I know they’re the Internet’s two favorite words, but it’s actually the correct diagnosis in this case.

Politicians are almost always the front-men for the people who hold real power. You lived in MA during the Mumbles years (bag man->coat-holder->driver->mayor-for-life!) Didn’t that ever give you pause? The Clintons are far more interesting. Bill was brilliant but “white trash,” Hillary was middle-class-boomer college smart (she failed the bar on her first try, etc.) but she’s not stupid. Oddly, while Bill was governor, AR was the hub for the illegal activities known as Iran-Contra. Years later Bill called GHWB “dad” and all the little Bushies voted for Hillary. Go figure.

I hear you; what I do like about Trump is that he has all the right enemies. His instincts are generally on our side. It’s grand political entertainment to see progressives corkscrewing into the overhead. But when he can’t address a relatively simple issue by stringing together 3 or 4 coherent sentences? This screams “moron.” And his incessant need for fan-based rallies? This screams “salesman.” This is what’s sad – the fact that he’s the best POTUS our side can probably hope for. And this is why it’s absolutely nuts to hope for (i.e. vote for) salvation from Washington DC.… Read more »
