Get It While It’s Hot

Ooooh baby- have we got a rogue’s gallery of miscreants, liars, thieves, and overall ignorant people here, and the list grows every day.

It blows me away that the newspapers, by and large, either ignore these problems, or bury them deep in the paper, hoping that people won’t read that far.

Let’s start with the big three- Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, and Chuck Schumer, all of these Democrats on either the House Finance Committee,or the Senate Banking Committee, and all of them, along with other, less important ones like Maxine Waters, were responsible for the sub- prime meltdown, by refusing to add regulations to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Since 1997, Barney Frank, the Elmer Fudd of the House Finance committee, has repeatedly blocked any and all attempts at reform for these lending entities, just so they could claim (falsely) that they were able to put poor people into houses.

OK, technically these poor people got the houses, but when they couldn’t afford them, they had to move out, or file for bankruptcy- not a good outcome.

Then, Chris Dodd has the Countrywide scandal, where he got sweetheart deals on mortgages that violate his oath, if obviously not his ambiguous ethics.

Now, let’s talk taxes, since the Democrats seem to be, as a group, extremely allergic to paying any- no wonder we have a budget problem. Charlie Rangel, who chairs the House Ways and Means Committee, which sets our tax rate and writes the ridiculous tax code, can’t seem to get his taxes straight, believing that any rent he gets from several properties in New York is not income. In addition, the cars he owns, and the ones he leases, are also subject to taxation, contrary to his beliefs.

Tom Dashle, Nancy Kilefer, Tim Geithner- all have had tax troubles that in at least two cases, led to the derailing of their nominations to the Barama cabinet. In Geithner’s case, however, he was made the head of the TReasury, which runs the IRS. This is like hiring a serial child rapist to baby sit your daughter. Seriously.

And Rhomboid Emmanuel, the Prez’ favorite homie, doesn’t seem to know the tax code either. The man who is Chief of Staff to the President feels that living rent- free, thanks to a political donor, is not crossing an ethical if not a legal line, but he isn’t even being investigated here. If this was a Republican, oh the stories you would hear and read.

And then there’s Murtha- this sorry excuse of a man is all about the graft- we cannot even call these “earmarks” with a straight face. He gets his nephew a no- bid contract- for what? we don’t know yet. The man has his own airport, built with tax dollars. This airport serves about twenty people a WEEK, and yet it has a state of the art radar station that can’t be used, because there is no one who is qualified to use this machinery. This airport has cost around 100 million over the years, and there has been NO accountability for where the money went. Did any of this money line Jackie Murtha’s pockets? Probably, but there has been no investigation, because Democrats really do not care about the law, or the people, or anything but themselves.

Witness, if you will, the sorry case of William Jefferson. The FBI have evidence of kickbacks, and even did a sting on this crook. Jefferson even had 90,000 dollars in his freezer, in a tin foil wrapped bundle. OK, that doesn’t look guilty? But the frustrating thing is that this man may not be prosecuted, or if so,receive a slap on his wrist, because the Democrats are in power now, and with the active collusion of the media, they seek to control the embarrassing moments in their overt power grab.

Some moments they cannot hide, such as the Prez’ lies, and they are legion. He promised to be transparent in his actions- he lied. He promised to eliminate the income tax for all seniors making less than $50,000 a year- he lied. He promised a $3,000 tax credit for small businesses- he lied through his teeth. He promised that he would ELIMINATE earmarks, then revised his statement- he lied, lied, lied.

Barama called presidential “signing statements” unconstitutional, then attached one of his own to a $410 billion spending bill. Is that a lie? I think so- I do know that it is HYPOCRITICAL.

I could keep on going, for at least another thousand words, and not repeat any lies that Barama has told the American public. The list is seemingly endless. The man lies like Josef Goebbels, the Nazi propagandist, who once said that if you tell a lie big enough, and you repeat it often enough, it becomes the perceived truth. This is Barama’s philosophy, unfortunately. It astounds me that more people haven’t figured this out- I have to believe that there are a lot of people who are just oblivious to the politics that will affect them, until they get hit with all these proposed restrictions.

Much like the turtle crossing the road, they are oblivious to the traffic, until they are run over.

Then, of course, it is too late.

    There is an article entitled,”Democrats wallow in a ‘culture of corruption'” here:

    http://www.latimes.com/news/opinion/la-oe-goldberg5-2009may05,0,4697976.column

    One of Jonah’s comments in this article is:
    “But you know what? We ain’t seen nothing yet. For starters, the real corruption isn’t what the media are ignoring or downplaying as isolated incidents. It’s what the media are hailing as bold, inspirational leadership. The White House, as a matter of policy, is rewriting legal contracts, picking winners (mostly labor unions and mortgage defaulters) and singling out losers (evil “speculators”) while much of the media continue to ponder whether Obama is better than FDR.”

    And this ties in with another article I read here: http://www.northstarwriters.com/dkk177.htm
    called: “Obama Channels His Inner Stalin”

    One of his comments is:”Third, the fact that the Obama Administration would so confidently wield the press as a weapon indicates that they aren’t merely vomit-inducing in shoving their tongues up his teleprompter-dependent bunghole in blind worship. The media, by the White House’s own de facto admission in having issued this threat, will not only refuse to report and thus cover up the malicious misdeeds of their “messiah,” it will happily and obediently destroy his enemies upon his marching orders. They are, in essence, his club-wielding goon squad. (Whereas a Republican president so threatening people would result in screaming for impeachment and ululating echoing through newsrooms as they wrote veritable fatwas of jihad against him.)
    I bought the video,”Media Malpractice, How Obama Got Elected and Palin was targeted.” It really makes you sick to watch. Plus it was really plain the day and evening of the Tea Parties. I was flipping through the channels and it was eerie how there was no coverage whatsoever on CNN or MSNBC except commentators making snide remarks about them and playing them down as nothing and then Fox had cameras and complete coverage at most of the bigger cities across the nation where there was thousands of people gathered at each one.

    Another thing is as Rush says, you can’t argue policy with the Democrats and the left because they totally go by feelings and beliefs. They just feel and believe that he is the one.

    What sickens me is the blatant in your face hypocrisy they exhibit. I actually believe one day Barama or one of his posse will say,” I dare you- call me on this lie- I dare you.”
    The fact that you have the media by and large sucking on like remoras to a shark, is just as deplorable.
    There was a time, long ago, when the media was responsible, and held anyone accountable, but since they put their cheerleading skirts on, they have become Barama’s whores, doing whatever he wants. Attack Sarah Palin? Sure, no problem. Bury any inconvenient fact? Done.
    My father was a damn fine journalist and PR guy, and even taught a class on journalistic ethics at UT, but he’d be sickened at the state of journalism today.

    And we’re in for years more of it. Unless the public starts to wake up and recognize them for the liars and criminals they are. Even then I’m not sure we could hold them accountable.

    • Blake says:

      The media could, and should have a role to play, but they have to quit cheerleading, and burying the embarrassing stories. They need to get back to the ball- busting investigative journalism they used to be able to do. Can they do this?
      Only time will tell if we have journalists with guts.
      Everybody from my daughter on tells me that the internet is where it’s at, but I am old school, and I like a newspaper that is worth reading- unfortunately there are none at the present time. What a true pity.
