PLAUSIBLE DENIABILITY or INCOMPETENCE?


Image

            I am growing very tired of the ‘denials’ of knowledge, involvement, responsibility, accountability, or anything else from this administration.  I keep hearing “Plausible Deniability” with regard to Mr. Obama from his defenders and supporters.  Somehow his ‘lack of knowledge’ about anything that is going on within his administration is supposed to be a good thing when in the civilian world it would be a ‘fireable offense’ but in politics it seems to be a plus and even a commendation.  That view is more than ‘dumb’ it is STUPID and being dumb is excusable but being stupid is not.  You can fix dumb by you can’t fix stupid.  Sadly, stupid seems to be a choice whereas dumb is not always by choice.  I am ‘dumb’ on any number of things because I lack the information and knowledge but I try not to be STUPID which is to ignore the facts, information, and go against reasonable logic.

            What is “plausible deniability?”  It refers to circumstances where a denial of responsibility or knowledge of wrongdoing cannot be proved as true or untrue due to a lack of evidence proving the allegation. This term is often used in reference to situations where high ranking officials deny responsibility for or knowledge of wrongdoing by lower ranking officials. In those situations officials can “plausibly deny” an allegation even though it may be true.  It also refers to any act that leaves little or no evidence of wrongdoing or abuse.  That seems to be the modus operandi of the Obama Administration and while not a new phenomenon it is revolting.

            It does not seem to matter what the situation, Mr. Obama ‘did not know’ and therefore is somehow excused.  However he is the Chief Executive in the Nation so as Truman said, “The Buck Stops Here” meaning his desk.  He claims to have ‘no knowledge’ regarding the Fast & Furious disaster, Benghazi, the IRS scandals, the Data Mining of the NSA,  the Eavesdropping on friends and foes alike, and now the disastrously failed website for his signature law OBAMACARE.  He just DOESN’T KNOW!  The man that has been billed as the ‘smartest man in the room’ and one whose brilliance is so bright that people virtually have to ‘wear sunglasses’ when in his presence to keep from being blinded by his brilliance DOESN’T KNOW!  The only way I can accept that is like Despots throughout history if he does not know it is because HE DOES NOT CARE!  His ideological agenda to ‘fundamentally transform America’ overrides his interest in the details.  I can accept his ‘not knowing’ only if it comes after his edict to ‘GET IT DONE but don’t bother me with the details.’

             I am insulted by anyone in his position trying to take the ‘plausible deniability’ out.  Mr. President, you are charged with protecting and defending the Constitution of these United States of America and your job as Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, as the Chief Executive of this Nation, and the arguable leader of the Free World is TO KNOW and TAKE RESPONSIBILITY.  Any failure on that front is an affront to every person who voted for you and every legal citizen or resident in this nation.  You seem to always have an opinion on matters involving race that are in the public view but when it comes to the matters of our economy, healthcare, and national security YOU DO NOT KNOW that is not acceptable!  It should not be acceptable to anyone including those who worship you with a cult-like reverence.  Somewhere reason should override the rock-star like infatuation and you be held accountable for what is taking place under your watch.

Image 

            Let me go one step further and say since you seem to feel that you can suspend the Constitution, ignore the laws passed by Congress and signed by your hand or that of another President picking and choosing what to enforce why not do the same to FIX THE MESS that you claim you were unaware of?  Of course you will not do that, and I really don’t want you to usurp the Constitution further by doing so but if you really cared about America, Americans, or any segment of our society you would demand immediate actions to rectify the mess but you won’t because the mess is what you wanted to begin with.

            I don’t buy your ‘plausible deniability’ and do hold you accountable for what is taking place under your watch.  Sadly, all I can do is vent and pressure my elected officials to stand firm in opposition to your failed and failing policies in hopes of stemming the tide of destruction that you have brought on this nation.  May God help us!

            God bless you and God bless America!

THE MOST CALAMITOUS PRESIDENT IN AMERICAN HISTORY….


Image

            Among the other credits that the current occupant of the White House has received I would like to give him another award that being ‘The Most Calamitous President in American History.’  In reviewing the campaign and the past five years it would seem to me that most in the political world failed to truly see the promises made by Mr. Obama during the campaign as having any serious threat and were deemed to be nothing more than political rhetoric in an attempt to be elected.  They have been proven wrong on so many occasions that it would be futile to enumerate them or even try.  He has proven to be quite the traducer in his war on the Constitution and anything or anyone that respects it and holds to a conservative political view.  His Anti-American, Anti-Free Market credo has driven him to inflict noxious policies upon the America people with calamitous results which are still being realized.

            Many on the Right within the Republican Establishment contended prior to and shortly after the election that Mr. Obama would govern as a centrist he has done anything but that.  His temerity in the advancing of his virulent ideology and the recreant Republican opposition or response has allowed the trio of Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Barack Obama to ram laws down our throats such as the Affordable Health Care Act aka Obama-care.  He and they ignore the mandates of the Constitution, hide evidence concerning the many scandals and the perfidious if not outright treasonous actions of the Department of Justice and other agencies overseen by this White House is more than a little disconcerting at times it is downright frightening.  He has purposefully sought to cozen the voting public and it is arguable that his fraud and deception regarding Obama-care is a more liable act that that of Bernie Madoff.  Mr. Madoff deceived a few but Mr. Obama has deceived an entire nation and perpetrated a fraud on an epic scale.  He did it knowingly with malice and forethought and that is, in my view, treasonous and certainly calamitous.

 Image

            This president has beguiled millions and many of them still bow at the proverbial altar erected in his honor by the media and various groups seeking to advance their particular segment of ideological thought.  He is pompous, mendacious, and is incredibly sybaritic in his indulgence and devotion to himself and the life of royalty.  America is finding out just how nefarious and iniquitous his opprobrious ideology and character is as he besmirches any suggestion by the Republicans and brands them as ‘terrorist’ or some other equally demeaning characterization.  I only wish that the Republicans in Washington had the moral rectitude to defend the Constitution, represent the majority of the citizens who have expressed a disapproval of this President’s policies including but not solely Obama-care.  Until and unless we have people in Washington that will STAND against the virulent calamitous policies and ideology of this administration we will go over the cliff into the abyss of ruin as a nation.

 Image

            So, Mr. Obama I want to officially award you with the distinguished title of “The Most Calamitous President in American History.”  You were serious when you declared that your express purpose and driving desire was to ‘fundamentally transform America.’  Sadly, many did not fully grasp what you meant and hopefully more and more are finding it impossible to turn a blind eye and a deaf ear to what you are doing.  May God expose you and bring you to a place of decision regarding your fustian attitude clearly revealing your god-complex and desire to be emperor as you advance your designed dismantling of a free nation that still has as its motto: “In God We Trust.”  Sir, I still cling to the hope that America is a ‘Christian Nation’ not a ‘Muslim Nation’ as you and some of your associates have declared. 

             May God bless you and may God bless America!

LET’S LOOK AT OUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK….


 

Image

            Maybe that is a misstatement and should be our tax dollars at waste!  The list is beyond my ability to be exhaustive and would in fact be exhausting to try to go through the entire list of ‘government waste’ but let’s unveil a few that you may or may not be aware of.  After we look at them I want you to answer one question – “How can you support increased government spending?’

             Our wonderfully efficient and prudent government spent $2.6 Million to train Chinese prostitutes to drink responsibly.  I’m sure that there is some explanation as to how this affects our national security and national interest but I have yet to see it logically.  This same government that is continually crying about needing MORE REVENUE or TAXES spent almost $200K to see if cocaine use would cause Japanese quail engage in sexual activity.  WHAT?  We spent a cool MILLION to build a soccer field for the Guantanamo Bay detainees.  But I’m sure that their comfort is far more important than our safety or maybe if they can play soccer they won’t be interested in committing acts of terror!  We have learned that the IRS is paying out $70 Million in bonuses although that was forbidden under Sequester.  Additionally we are leaving about $7 Billion in military equipment behind in Afghanistan.  This same efficient federal government is now going to be running our Health Care Industry and somehow make it more efficient, less costly, and better – – No Virginia the moon is not made of green cheese.

 Image

            Remember how much the Obama’s African trip cost?  It was in excess of $100 Million.  Then I saw that the National Institute of Health is spending over $500K on a study that will send text messages in ‘gay lingo’ to ‘meth addicts’ to try to get them to use fewer drugs and use condoms.  How about this one – The National Science Foundation gave Yale University almost $400K to conduct research on “Sexual Conflict, Social Behavior and the Evolution of Waterfowl Genitalia.”  Now I feel so much better!  To make us feel even better we learn that the U.S. Government has or is giving (16) F-16’s and (200) Abrams tanks to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and one of their headline statements has been, “Dear brothers, we must never forget to nurse our children and grandchildren on hatred towards those Zionist and Jews and all who support them.” 

             With regard to those working for or around this President we find that there are 139 (maybe more) White House staffers who made a minimum of $100K in 2012 and 20 or more made over $150K.  The tax-payers are handed a bill for over $1.4 Billion to care for the Obama family each year in contrast to the British spend $58 Million on the entire Royal Family.  But one that really makes me feel good about our government’s spending and use of our money is the $25K spend organizing a promotional tour for the Alabama Watermelon Queen in 2012.  But not to leave out our furry friends the U.S. Government spent over $500K to promote specialty hair and beauty products for cats and dogs last year.  I will sleep so much better at night now knowing that dogs and cats are going to get their hair and beauty products at the government’s expense.

             Let’s not forget the perks for Congress where over the past 15 years our tax-payer dollars spent for ‘hair care services’ for the U.S. Senate was a paltry $5.25 Million.  We have to keep those Senator’s hair looking good.  But moving on we also spent $27 Million to teach Moroccans how to design and make pottery in 2012.  With our unemployment rate incredibly high and the economy in dire straits our frugal government managed to spend $1.3 Million to ‘reduce linguistic, academic, and unemployment barriers for skilled and low-skilled immigrants and refugees, and to integrate them into the U.S. workforce and professions.”  (That included ILLEGALS).  Don’t you feel better already?  Of course we dare not forget that various government agencies purchased over 2 Billion rounds of ammunition for ‘training purposes.’  Either they are incredibly bad shots, train an awful lot or someone has lied about why they purchased the ammunition.  Let me give you two more and I have not scratched the surface of the waste – During 2012, the National Science Foundation spent over $500K on the creation of a video game named “Prom Week” designed to simulate “all the social interactions of the event.”  WOW!   Lastly, let me note that the National Institute of Health endowed a group of ‘researchers’ to study the benefits of watching reruns on television at the tune of over $650K.

            Okay, before I ask my initial question I cannot omit this one – The National Science Foundation gave $1.2 Million to a team of ‘scientists’ to determine if elderly people would benefit by playing ‘World of Warcraft.’    Now back to my initial observation and question – “In light of all this and more can you seriously support increased government spending?”  If you can then I have to ask, “What part of the pie are you getting?”  This waste may be a drop in the bucket in light of the TRILLIONS being spent but each little weight adds up to the point that the boat can no longer stay afloat.

            WE MUST REDUCE THE DEBT, THE DEFICIT and STOP THIS INSANE SPENDING!  We do not have decades to get this under control we have run out of time.  The time is now!

             God bless America and God bless you!

           

BUT IT’S THE LAW OF THE LAND……


 

Image

            I’ve heard lame baseless arguments to support things but this ascends high on the list of the most ridiculous one could offer – “But it’s the law of the land….”   That is the argument of the left regarding the Affordable Health Care Act aka Obamacare.  They shout that as though it should mean that all opposition is immediately silenced and everyone simply complies!  Do you really want to go there?  Are you sure you want to make that argument?  Okay I gave you the opportunity to think so let’s follow that logic and argument through history.

             If we are to surmise that because a bill has been passed by Congress, signed into law by the President, and the Supreme Court has ruled on its Constitutionality we are to passively and obediently comply what do we do about some interesting events in history? 

             That logic would mean that people like Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King, Jr. and anyone involved in the Civil Rights Movement were ‘criminals’ because they did not comply with the ‘Separate But Equal’ – LAW OF THE LAND prior to the Brown v. Board of Education ruling in 1954 which overturned it.  That had been the LAW OF THE LAND for 58 years!  It was something that many felt could not and should not be allowed to stand, was discriminatory and should be opposed but if we follow the Democrat logic they were engaging in ‘unlawful’ or ‘criminal’ activity and instead of being applauded for their stance and fight they should be branded as criminals. That would mean that Bull Connor and those who took his stance should be lauded as patriots because they were upholding THE LAW OF THE LAND.  So again, I ask “Do you really want to take that path?”

Image 

            If you will examine history you will find that it was once the LAW OF THE LAND that women had ‘no vote’.  It was not until the Seneca Falls Convention in 1848 that the demand for the enfranchisement of women rose to the heights to propel it into reality.  In fact, after the Civil War, women led by Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and others over the disparity of enfranchising black men but still not giving women the right to vote.  It was not until the passage of the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution in 1920 that women gained the right to vote.  Does that mean that those women and men who demonstrated and roused public sentiment against THE LAW OF THE LAND should be regarded as ‘criminals’ because they did not obediently comply with a bad law?  Were they ‘hostage takers’, ‘terrorist’, and ‘evil’? 

 Image

           How about slavery, it was also THE LAW OF THE LAND.  In the Dred Scott decision in 1857 the Supreme Court ruled that African Americans, whether slave or free, could not be American citizens and therefore had no standing to sue or bring suit in a federal court, and that the federal government had no power to regulate slavery in the federal territories acquired after the creation of the United States.  Thus, the Supreme Court declared that slavery was THE LAW OF THE LAND and legal.  So, anyone on the side of the North in the Civil War was breaking the LAW OF THE LAND and those in the South were only enforcing the Law of the Land!   (I must insert that it is my view that the Civil War was about more than slavery and very high on the reason was States Rights.  My view, you do not have to agree.)  But, do we want to say that those who were opposed to slavery were breaking the law because, after all it was the LAW OF THE LAND, and those that supported it were simply enforcing the LAW OF THE LAND?   Do you really want to take that path?  Slavery was written by Democrats and approved by the Supreme Court.  So really!

            We could talk about “Prohibition” which led to more violence, corruption, and criminal activity than almost anything in our modern history.  It was a bad law and thousands if not millions of lives were ruined as a result of this law but it was THE LAW OF THE LAND.  The “Poll Tax” was the Law of the Land but was opposed.  Segregation was the Law of the Land but opposed.  So now when Obamacare is opposed by a majority of Americans and by members of Congress they are called ‘bigots’, ‘racist’, ‘terrorists,’ ‘extortionist’, and many other names because they are resisting THE LAW OF THE LAND.   We could have solved the healthcare problem or at least addressed it more reasonably without Obamacare but that would not give Barack Obama his ‘signature’ piece of legislation for his legacy.  What will that legacy be?  It depends on who is writing the history books.  Medicare/Medicaid could have been expanded, the payroll tax expanded and many other approaches but instead we have FORCED CONSCRIPTION into Health Insurance mandated by the government that is going to be of lesser quality and more expensive than what we had.  One of the reasons they are taking this pathway is because they do not want State Governments controlling any of the mix and want to move us to ‘Single Payer Government Run Healthcare’ and CONTROL.  

Image          

            So before you argue ‘It is the Law of the Land’ you might want to study history and realize that you are painting yourself in a corner.  But, since when did this president or the Democrat members of Congress become concerned with the Constitution or the Law?  They skirt it, bypass it, ignore it, and avoid it so frequently that one would wonder where they came up with that argument.  I guess it was from the same source that caused Hillary and Pelosi to utter, “What difference does it make?” on separate occasions and issues.

             America, bad laws are to be opposed and through peaceful and legal means changed, rescinded, and revoked.  Just because something is THE LAW OF THE LAND does not make it good or right.  

             God bless you and God bless America!
