Arresting the Slide into Third World-ism

The descent started when Obama (America’s first “prick-tator”) started wielding his phone and pen which, thankfully, is now being undone. In this process, he enabled a sense of entitlement among the various fringe groups that comprise what is really a minority (in numbers), Democrat party. Chief among their sense of “entitlement” is the use of the force of government to foist and decree various mandates upon the rest of us – without debate or even the legislative process. In fact, all debate is mostly suffocated by claims of “racism” with the help of the complicit media. I am reminded of an analogous situation in the third world country of Guyana (of Jonestown infamy), with which I have some familiarity. When the 28+ year old dictatorship there finally allowed themselves to lose an election by agreeing with Jimmy Carter to stop the rigging, it didn’t take long for the deposed leadership to decide to make the country “ungovernable” by spreading “mo’ fire” and “slow fire,” literally and figuratively. So, along with calls from single brain cell celebrities, who have so much in common with the rest of us, for actions that mirror the third world, we have politicians at the highest level of the Democrat party (Chuck Schumer and Tim Kaine, for example) stoking the flames. I’d ask if these people have no sense of decency for what is supposed to be a first world nation but I know that they abandoned all pretense of this a long time ago. Make no mistake, along with the media, their aim is to make the country “ungovernable” because they believe it is their birthright to tell the rest of us how to live our lives under the scrutiny and force of their government. The problem is that they’ve lost that to which they feel entitled and they still do not know why and cannot get over it. The palpable fear is that Mr. Trump will be wildly successful and this represents an overwhelming threat to their fascist desires.

So the tantrum continues, as one might find in a third world nation. It obviously doesn’t help that the rule of law was blown up under the previous administration with their, in my opinion, willful coddling of these domestic terrorists; exactly as they did the international ones. The Democrat party is to them what an Imam at a top madrassa is to a budding terrorist. It is rather unfortunate that these people will not accept the losers’ participation trophy and let our lives go on in peace. What’s to be done? On inauguration day, someone sent me a text saying, “what a shame about the violent protests,” my response was, “they should be shot with rubber bullets, tear gassed and be driven off the streets and if they were in fact paid, the source(s) of their funding should be tracked down and arrested for incitement.” I still believe this is what needs to be done because as their desperation grows, the situation will likely worsen; there is absolutely no reason why law-abiding citizens of this country should have to deal with the vandalism and anarchy.

Regarding the travel suspension, I’d suggest that it wasn’t far-reaching enough. (Related to this suspension, let there be no doubt that across the media spectrum, there are people waiting breathlessly for a jihadist to attack here in the US so that they can immediately proceed to blame this suspension as the motive.) Under the radar, the Obama administration handed visitor’s visas (valid for 5 or 10 years) to practically anyone who showed up at a US Embassy or Consulate abroad. This was a completely legal way of opening our borders and with no exit tracking system, no one really knows who has stayed in the country illegally. Every single visitor’s visa issued over the last 8 years ought to be nullified; this can be done simply by having ICE rejecting entries into the US and informing travelers abroad that they need to re-apply for a new visa. Furthermore, any woman who is 7 months or more pregnant should not be allowed into the country, unless there are some extenuating circumstances. Anchor babies are being delivered across the country particularly in states such as CA and NY; this cannot be allowed to continue at the expense of US taxpayers. More generally, any reform of the immigration system must end chain immigration and a points based system has to be instituted in order to ensure that the continuing rip-off of hardworking taxpayers will cease.

Gruber’s Gruesome but Right

Prof. Gruber’s admission that passage of Obamacare depended on the “stupidity” of the American public should come as no surprise to anyone; the man should be applauded for his candor.

Examining the answers to the following questions would suggest that he was and is absolutely right. It is the dependency on the existence of these people that has kept the Democrat party in power; it is their base, it is to whom they appeal and the rest of us, while living in this country, simply pay the price for their voting habits .

So:

(1) how did “hope and change” work
(2) how did President Obama, after promising to “transform” and “redistribute,” win in 2008
(3) in spite of his government’s record, how did he win a second term in 2012
(4) why did the “war on women” work; how did “binders full of women” get to be more important than Benghazi in 2012
(5) what else would explain the herd mentality of entire groups of people (journalists, minorities, etc.) that drives them to vote for Democrat candidates, repeatedly and with the same outcomes
(6) related to item 5, what else but the belief that there exists mass stupidity among her largely black audience would drive Michelle Obama to tell them in the lead up to the last election, “And that’s my message to voters, this isn’t about Barack, it’s not about person on that ballot– its about you. And for most of the people we are talking to, a Democratic ticket is the clear ticket that we should be voting on, regardless of who said what or did this– that shouldn’t even come into the equation.”  In other words, blindly do what I say.
(7) what else would explain the rise to Speakership of Nancy Pelosi
(8) how did Michael Moore and those of his ilk become rich?
(9) what possible reason is there for the existence of TMZ, Access Hollywood, Entertainment Tonight and assorted gossip magazines, e.g., “People,” etc.
(10) related to item (9) what else drives the obsession with celebrities, including sports figures and yes, in general, sports. Relatedly, why do grown men wear “Jeter” or “Manning” or whomever else apparel?
(11) what audience is there for the mindless and utter crap that is broadcasted on daytime television
(12) why do advertisements for products with the words “actor portrayal” clearly indicated work
(13) what else drives young women in NYC to wear jeans/pants of a particular shade of blue or for that matter, what makes any person a fashion, trend or any kind of follower
(14) days before the 2014 elections, why did a video of a woman being “catcalled” become viral and receive coverage over a broad spectrum of the media
(15) what else would enable the rackets of Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton
(16) why is it that the greatest country in the world cannot have elections without fraud, glitches and voter IDs when we demand the same across the globe with Jimmy Carter as observer
(17) why is Hillary Clinton qualified to be POTUS? That’s right, we have lowered the bar and the “glass ceiling” with it but the fact that she will now be touted as the most “experienced” candidate – probably in the history of the republic, no less – by the very same people who gave us a president with absolutely no experience at running anything, is yet another sign of the level of stupidity Democrats can count on.
(18) why else would people cede their power for decades to the government and the media
(19) what has enabled the states to cede their power to the federal government
(20) why does the global warming/climate change hoax continue to perpetuate? How many Prof. Gruber’s are involved?
(21) why is President Obama able to distance himself from all the scandals that have plagued his administration.
(22) on what foundation was the Occupy Wall Street operation built
(23) Why do anti-war protesters become latent during Democrat presidencies
(24) Why are there people who still believe that the federal government can do anything efficiently or effectively except through coercion?

This list can go on but we have a general sense of what’s going on here. The final question, however, is this:

(25) why does it seem that folks are more outraged about Prof. Gruber’s confessions than they were about “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor,” “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan” and all the other failed promises of the abominable law? In the light of the professor’s revelations, the most relevant question to ask is, “what did the President know and when did he know it?” The evidence suggests that the President was fully aware and an active participant in the fraud being perpetrated on the American people; this is where the real outrage should be directed. But, what is anyone going to do about it?

Which is a good segue to Executive Amnesty or President Obama’s ultimate “FU” and revenge against the American people and particularly, those who dared to vote against his policies and party recently. It is not clear that defunding the operational aspect of it will work because USCIS could simply pass on the cost to mint new documents to the amnesty beneficiaries – which is what they normally do, anyway. The Courts might have a say about the legality of the EO but perhaps a more effective way to deal with the matter is for the Republican party’s leaders and those looking at running for nomination to be president to step forward right after the EO is issued and say some or all of the following: (1) with a potential Republican president the EO will be voided on Jan 20th, 2017 (2) those who benefit from the amnesty will NEVER be put on a path to citizenship – per existing law and (3) by registering for the amnesty’s benefits, you are telling the government who you are, where you live, etc., and this may make deportation later easier. The impact of these comments may depress interest in the offered “amnesty” which should make it easier to undo later on.
