late thoughts on WH ‘scandals’
SO, yet again, the Benghazi hearings are overshadowed by scandal: each time, there is such a hoorah about somebody doinking someone they shouldn’t be, or, this time around, how another internal agency has used its power to manipulate, coerce, intimidate, and basically use Mobster tactics to gain or restrict power to other entities. Wha?!!?!?! A Government Agency using its position to steer the ship of politics? Say it ain’t so! Whodathunk? Benevolent government being oppressive? Nevah!
Even so, what I see is another decrepit elephant trying to manipulate the entire event into political capitol for their benefit instead of doing what really needs done: Reform the Tax code to a truly fair and SIMPLE point so that we can 1: reduce the effects of O-care and other entitlement spending, and 2: get our economy back under control (by reducing the size of what the Criminals have to spend)
Hell, I am a realist, I KNOW that none of that will happen. If anything, this is only going to do two things 1: Help those on the hill, kick the can down the road a little longer 2: Shift the balance of power to the GOP so that they are the ones holding the reins when it does fail (What better way for the left to say “Told ya so!” with our short attention span society)(on that last note, I blame both sides all around as they are both complicit in the dismantling of our country and its freedoms. Empty promises to keep power are to blame just as much as those that willingly fell for the hype and rhetoric in a passion of greed.)
Ya gotta watch these people. Think about this. The microscope was on The core group of the Administration, they needed to shift focus, so they leaked the IRS shit out. Yeah, it still comes back on them, but there are so many more people in the SGS that can be blamed and rolled under the bus, that they can make the hit they are going to take that much softer. They care not one whit about the ‘little people’ or who takes the fall along the way as long as they are the ones standing at the end. (and you can tell they NEVER did military time as they will leave their comrades bleeding out on the field EVERY TIME, without batting an eye.) SO Benghazigate is heating up, shift focus enough that the media isn’t burying them with it and get the ‘People’ shifted to a different course. One that can be manipulated into a different political clout in time.
Yes, I think these people are that sleazy in their planning. I really do believe they would sell their mothers down the river to the barbarians if it meant they could keep breathing today. These people would sell YOUR kidney to line their coffers if they thought they could get away with it. (oh, they do get away with it; you need only look at your FICA and other forced deductions to see that.)
Here’s another way to look at this. Watch not WHAT the media is screaming and gnashing its teeth about today, look at what they are studiously ignoring. Like the fall in the gold markets (as predicted by some) What about Kid Korea, no word on that now, so either he came to his senses or there was some payoff somewhere (I think the latter) that we will never know about. I know I don’t need to say it, as we all know that the MSM’s are bought, lock stock and hide now. They are the fourth estate of power in the shell game of world politics. The real question become who is really in power, who controls how that money, that makes up the currents of power in the political ocean, is gained or trickled out? I think we can say with all honesty, that it is NOT our government. My personal opinion is that our Government is just another cut out ‘company’ that is used like the machine it is, as a control mechanism and only so long as it is still useful to the real power base. That time is coming to an end and we may well see a shift in WHO controls these shores. And it will be ugly, bloody, and bone shattering when it happens. We do see, now, internal conflicts within the machine as sides are being chosen, and internal conflicts are coming to light. “A house divided”? Yes, it is. Not just within the people that make up the ‘power’ but those that have that power in their hands.
And it is the same old story as the last 300 failed empires. The only thing left standing, holding the bag, in the end, are the very people that make up the power to begin with: US. Never(rarely) those that manipulated it all. Even at the end, those that control the reins of power have the same ends available to them. A bullet to the head or a noose in a tree. The only difference is how much they do before it all catches up to them. (like the saying goes, after the first one, the rest are all free. They can only kill you once.) Even then, those that remain, retain the bill for the damage done: there is always a bill to be paid, in currency or sweat equity (but I repeat myself.)
