Bullies and High Places

Wow, what a juncture this should be for the mainstream media.  While some bystanders still have their hands held out for UFO disclosure from this corrupt government, whose agenda far surpasses and voids those dreams, the art of accepting or rejecting responsibility looms large.  Is the Administration's ball of public relations yarn unraveling?  Should media members at last come out from behind masks of fluff and irrelevancy and put these White House frauds on their toes -- or should they continue towing the party line, routinely lifting the Obama bunch toward those blissful heavens where accountability is always somebody else's problem? 

This president habitually "cries wolf" and spins tales as he speaks, albeit in a hands-off manner, as if purposely attempting to remain historically distant from every demon he conjures  --  for instance, the whole country witnessed his (and others in his circle), as usual, hyped-up fears that the sky would fall, this occasion being the very moment his own sequestration baby went into effect -- and his minions need to run for the hills because impeachment, under normal circumstances, would appear almost guaranteed.  By now, a lofty tower of politically privileged dominos remains intact, but for how long as the winds slowly shift?  The sky may indeed collapse, in national political terms, but it would be a different sky and a far different method of collapse than the sort imparted to us by progressive soothsayers and Marxists. 

Journalist Bob Woodward, isn't exactly the poster boy for conservative cheerleading.  In fact, he's been the long-time darling of liberals (with colleague Bernstein) ever since the Nixon takedown, and that's just fine because Woodward is what journalists were meant to be.   In fact, a lot of journalism school graduates pursued their path because of Woodward and Bernstein's influence. Sadly, there don't seem to be so many of these in mainstream USA news organizations anymore -- or, more likely, good journalists can't flower fully into bloom because they work for corporations with agendas and political affiliations.  To remain employed, you might have to play a game unanticipated, and sometimes you sell your soul before you know it's gone.

I know this is already old news, however fresh the meaning, but Bob Woodward dared to inject the word, madness into the sequestration issue, and he apparently directed that word toward the Obama White House -- Obama,  the originator of the sequestration scare, the action he was for before he was against it.  Madness --  wasn't that word used to denote the Nixon White House, too, as that hand basket descended through hell's sinkhole?

And what happens when a member of the clan dares criticize its own image?  Suddenly, respected wizard-status Woodward's bones are being gnawed upon and picked clean by liberal colleagues of varying status, and the man, predictably, seems destined for spanking in the Obama-sympathizer woodshed.  One can only contemplate the direction punishment may take.

In the meantime, other reports surface indicating the White House has referenced specific female reporters with obscene terms.  Genitalia on the map.

Woodward's discomfort over White House response to his barbs came deliciously to public notice just days after the president dismissed a room full of reporters because he wished to speak with a group of state governors in private, obviously an exercise in displaying, as promised years ago,  The Most Open Administration In History -- and before that, the infamous golfing session with Tiger Woods, to which all media were shut out, creating an uproar among reporters who expected love and hospitality, as always.

So now what?  Some -- some -- institutional media eyes seem to be losing their enchantment with the Obama bunch, and clearly it's taken a long time for them to become un-enamored.  Will they stand behind the legend of Bob Woodward, or continue hungrily gobbling up bread crumbs and floor-scrapings tossed to the press by Obama handlers?  Will Woodward’s formerly loyal colleagues instead throw Woodward under the bus and just dismiss him as an antiquity of the seventies?  Not only are we witnessing American government at the crossroads, the nation's quest for truth from the fourth estate also teeters on the future's edge. 

At this critical point, I'm almost tempted to wish for President Hillary Clinton -- then again, at this point I'm not sure I would be averse to either President Genghis Khan or President Vlad the Impaler.  Anybody but the grand fraud.  Anybody but the great pretender.

ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL, EXCEPT HOLLYWOOD IS MORE EQUAL THAN EVERYBODY ELSE:  Meanwhile, over in the lovely state of New York, fascist attractant and socialist wannabe magnet of the universe, megalomaniac governor Andrew Cuomo and his willing law-making dolts have taken the state's oppressive gun agenda one step further.  Legislation was quickly passed to allow movie and TV program production crews to continue bringing any and all of the usual firepower to NY because, apparently, the show must go on.  It's a comfort to know the nation and the world will continue to enjoy staged gun violence on the screen, while the people of NY may eventually have to satisfy their silly requirements for self-protection with something equivalent to police whistles and butter knives.  Yet, there is currently a challenge to Cuomo, Inc. as a couple of judges have reportedly asked for a timely explanation as to how the new gun laws don't violate the Constitution, and an injunction is also threatened over lawmakers' negligence in failing to allow the required three days of public comment before quickly passing the legislation like rats in hiding at 11:00 at night.  (My apologies to the rat species for this unfortunate, albeit necessary, comparison to a number of NY state legislators.)

In other places, gun issues don't always involve guns.  In Philadelphia a 10-year-old gets into big trouble in school, for allegedly holding an "L" shaped piece of paper as if it was a gun, while elsewhere a student gets suspended for chewing a breakfast treat into the shape of a gun.  In Florida, hero students are suspended after tackling another aiming a gun for earnest, thus preventing the imminent shooting of the intended victim student.  Suspended!. What the hell's going on in public schools and what message are teachers and administrators trying to push?  What, you're supposed to wait until authorities arrive before taking protective action, and during the wait lives will be lost?  I think every public school should sponsor Gun Appreciation Day, so formerly ill-advised students can learn the facts about firearm history, and realize how such weapons can save not only lives, but entire nations.  Otherwise, we'll just have nonsense such as Eric Holder decrying gun violence while he still hasn't answered to the Fast and Furious issue, in which guns peddled to Mexico under Obama evidently killed many innocent folks, both young and old.

Sure hope Egyptian rulers appreciate the 250 million dollars and who knows what else they'll receive of money we don't have from new-be secretary of state John Kerry.  You do realize, Mr. Secretary, that this is a gift to the Muslim Brotherhood?  I'm not certain, but I think that's enough money to cover a lot of women with burkas and to buy a few tons of rock to stone people to death.

ALIENS AMONG US:  I mean, it's not like they went away, for sure not.  Oh, you misunderstand -- not THOSE kinds of aliens!  I'm talking about the human kind, formerly locked up at immigration centers and jails.  So the feds let some 2,000 of them out over fears of the -- Obama's -- sequestration. Unconscionable.  Unnecessary and criminal.  This is on Obama's shoulders, even if one has to climb a lot of human administrative ladders to reach those shoulders.  Impeachable shoulders perhaps, but who in Congress will do the deed?  Wussies, bought and paid for by every lobbyist in town -- see no, hear no, speak no evil unless political parties will benefit.

Dennis Rodman, please return to North Korea and consider setting up permanent residence.  Obviously, you and Creepy Little Monster get along well, and if serious desires for NK to nuke the USA don't bother you, your leaving the U.S. won't bother me, either.  And, bonus, the starving people of North Korea will love you more than food as you delight them with warm  anecdotes about your heroic conquest of hoops.  A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush, and a ball thrust into a hole is worth a king's ransom in the absence of proper nutrition.  He shoots!  He scores!  He makes no sense!

CHINA IS so problematic.  Can't we just pay off our tremendous debt to them by billing them for stolen intellectual property?  I say, call it even.  And then make double and triple sure we kick every spying, lying member of the people's commie party out of the laboratories and out of the country (but don't confuse 'em with our homegrown commies, it's hard to tell them apart during pleasant conversation), and watch out for those flash drives.  Etc.

I remember all those signs and mottos from the eighties, effectively telling us we must teach tolerance, and I think that was directed primarily toward the racial situation  But now we have signs in schools and other places proclaiming ZERO TOLERANCE regarding all manner of things.  And, of course, zero tolerance is intolerance.  Looks like we went 180 degrees on that.  Well, fair is fair.  If they insist upon zero tolerance on guns, how about zero tolerance on compliance with silly official decrees which threaten basic freedoms?  We might be a lot better off if we jumped from zero tolerance to hero tolerance.
