Evil, Wicked, Mean and Nasty

Hypocrisy is not a way of getting back to the moral high ground. Pretending you’re moral, saying your moral is not the same as acting morally.” – Alan Dershowitz

Why is it evil, mean and nasty for Police, the FBI and/or CIA, DHS or any of the Alphabet Soup agencies in the United States to survey Muslim organizations? Since when have they backed down when someone whined about wiretaps or placing agents within their organizations? I mean, if you’re not doing anything wrong you have nothing to worry about, right? At least that’s what a lot of Obama brown nosers say when you mention your discomfort with the NSA!  I don’t understand people who are opposed to DHS keeping a close eye on groups like CAIR. NYC Mayor DiBlahblahblah is nearly apoplectic over this. I guess he didn’t see the memorial service for the 4 people killed during and after the Boston Bombing, or 13 souls lost in Fort Hood five years ago, or even remember stories of thwarted terror attempts right in the city where he works. Mr. Mayor, all of the offenders were Muslim. Who are you going to survey, the Mafia, the Hell’s Angels? Who? The Little Sisters of the Poor?

Oh, but wait! Those were “lone wolves” not “real terrorists”. Really? Where do you think they got their ideas, anger and training from? The “Spring Holiday No Longer to be Known as Easter” Bunny? NO! They got them from some Muslim organizations right here in the United States, online from radical Imams and some even went to “Terrorist Training Camps” for their summer vacations.

Let me ask you something, DiBlahblahblah. Do you think it was ethnic intimidation when the FBI watched every time Vincent Gigante, John Gotti, Sr., Al Capone or Paul Castellano farted? Was it unfair to single out Little Italy, The Italian Gun Club or other private clubs in Brooklyn, Staten Island, Long Island or New Jersey? They were wire tapped. They were infiltrated and, at times, members were “convinced” to become rats – like that POS Sammy Gravano. No one blinked an eye or protested on the behalf of Italian-Americans!

What about the raids on motorcycle clubs? Yeah, well, you probably feel that no one gives a crap about those dirty bikers anyway. Most of them are family men who hold down good jobs. I know. I married one. You know, you dumb F**k, Harleys are not cheap! No one cries or protests when a fat, sorry, POS infiltrates a club or wiretaps are placed on personal phones. No one saw any problem with almost convicting two young mothers for talking about diapers on the phone (they were really talking about drugs so says the FBI). The FBI was wrong and the judge laughed them out of court, thank God.

I assume you would argue that they’re usually white. You would be wrong. Some are Mexican clubs, some are African American clubs and some could be Martians for all I know. But, why is it okay to target them and not CAIR for investigation? In a day-and-age when there are a gazillion surveillance cameras on almost every street in every major city in America, who isn’t being watched?

If you are going to push for the removal of surveillance of Muslim organizations, buddy, you better damned well do the same for the rest of us.

Lie, Deny and Pacify

It is the absolute right of the State to supervise the formation of public opinion.” – Joseph Goebbels, Reich Minister of Propaganda in Nazi Germany 1933-1945

Kinda creepy, huh?  I mean, considering all that is going on with the IRS, DOJ, Benghazi, and the EPA.   How better to “supervise” what the public hears in order to win an election than to lie, deny and pacify?  “It is not truth that matters, but victory.” – Adolf Hitler, Führer und Reichskanzler, Germany 1933-1945

I wonder if Candy Crowley feels even a modicum of regret as a journalist for assisting Obama in the lie perpetrated upon the American public during his debate with Mitt Romney.  (Probably as regretful as Hill and Barry feel about the four deaths in Benghazi.)  She knew damned well that Obama never mentioned terrorism during the Rose Garden speech.  But, then again, so did most of the people who voted for him.  Like the followers of any charismatic leader, blind devotion trumps cold, hard facts every time.  “If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.” – Adolf Hitler

It has now come to light that “… 92 percent of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) fee waivers were granted to ‘environmental allies,’ while just 8 percent were granted to conservative think tanks. The disparity came to light this week in a report by a conservative research group.  Agencies can waive fees for requested information if they determine the information contributes to the public understanding of governmental activities” (Reuters.com).  To have a complete understanding of any circumstance, you must be able to consider both sides of the issue.  If one side is silenced, then all you are left with is a lecture from a biased podium.  When giving free access to information only to groups sympathetic to Obama, his campaign organizers were able to pacify their supporters and quite possibly gain new ones.

Let’s add the EPA to the IRS scandal that hit the airwaves last week.  Both pretty much attempted to accomplish the same goal – make life tough on the Conservatives (and those who are not Conservative, but believe in the Constitution and not in the government) so that they might give up, crawl under a rock and let Obama rule the country unfettered.  Once again, his supporters got what they wanted because their 501(c)(3) and (4) requests slid through like shit through a goose while others languished in paperwork Hell for months and months.  “In 2011 Conservative watchdog group Media Trackers filed with the IRS to achieve nonprofit status. The application got stuck in Obama-induced IRS limbo. In 2012 the same group changed its name and filed again with the IRS as “Greenhouse Solutions.” They were granted nonprofit status in 3 weeks” (Hannity.com).

Of course, He Who Bows to Dictators and Despots will claim he had no knowledge of the political games going on in either agency.  He had no knowledge that there were serious security concerns in Benghazi.  Certainly he had no knowledge of the wiretapping going on at the AP offices, and certainly he will deny any knowledge of the seizure of personal emails and phone records of Fox News’ James Rosen.  Really, why is this guy still President? 

The AP wiretapping scandal and the naming of reporter James Rosen as “…a probable ‘co-conspirator’ in a criminal spying case…” (Guardian.co.uk) reek of intimidation and a desire to show the press who is in charge.  “Think of the press as a great keyboard on which the government can play.” – Joseph Goebbels.  Problem is, Barry, there is a pesky little thing called the First Amendment and those who are journalists have no intention of changing their names to Steinway.  I feel this hornet’s nest might just get us a Republican/Libertarian controlled House and Senate in 2014.  (Put away your gavel, Nan.  Ain’t happenin’.)  Well, a girl can dream anyway.

What absolutely floors me is that Obama’s approval rating is still hovering around fifty percent.  When people discuss the “dumbing down” of America I find it hard to believe that they are only referring to school children.  Can it be that the effects of free stuff from the government include the loss of brain function?  I guess so.  In case you haven’t noticed the allusion running through this blog post, let me tie it up in a neat little bone-chilling bow for you with the following final quote:

The more we do to you, the less you seem to believe we are doing it.”

– Dr. Josef Mengele, SS Captain and The Angel of Death at Auschwitz, Germany, 1933-1945
