A PERSPECTIVE

There is an underlying absurdity to every aspect of our domestic (US) policy. Political leadership acknowledges the unsustainable fiscal vector; but only offers cognizant-recognition as the solution. Congresses since the 1960’s have considered the longterm solvency of Social Security and Medicare as an issue to ignore or admonish. The Democrats are inclined to refer to the solvency issue as another conservative phobia. The Republicans fear the ‘PR’ persona of meanness and take every consequential opportunity to misdirect the issue into the abyss of legislative process. Both parties are more concerned about the next election than addressing the obvious while the electorate stubbornly insists on “free stuff” as the barter for their vote. Discretionary spending is the focus of budgetary abatement while the greenback eating entitlement gorilla feasts on billions of tax dollars.

The liberal progressives consider the national deficit a cyclical rather than a structural indicator of fiscal reality; therefore, the solution is always increased taxation. The “red” State conservatives, secure in their electability, cannot discern the differing between the regards of their State constituency and national obligation to govern. These sober well-meaning conservatives naively misunderstand the rudiments of winning the political game and — with the assist of a bias media — always loose to the Democrats.

We have a self-aggrandizement president fixated on Saul Alinsky tactics that willfully vest within a political stratagem that embraces Machiavellian amorality. In President Obama’s concept of world order reality as heretofore validated is the ruse. America is the perpetrator, the menace, the offender to a peaceful world; the president believes America is the war-monger, the problem. He believes that Iran is rightfully the dominate nation in the Middle East and that as a matter of realpolitik America is required to accept such dominance as the price of peace.

The president as well as a significant number of Americans hold fast to a fanatical belief in political progressivism; these devotees believe progressivism is the new pantheon. The merits of progressivism are social justice, class warfare, and unionism; in addition and as a matter of attribute, the fulmination of political opponents by means extralegal or scurrilous is germane to the progressives’ game plan.

The president is a cagey chameleon and a tenacious conjurer. His followers think of him as a Svengali who soars above the fray of peasant difficulties. His allies however know him as hesitant and professorial; a utilizer of contrarian discourse solely to defer or negate making a decision. Our nation’s enemies know him as a vulnerable personality who favors adherence to the ideological tenets of the surreal. They also know that his presidency is termed and if they want something, it is now or never.

From the domestic to the foreign, our Obama driven progressivism has and is shaping the world into a very dangerous place…





HOLDER’S DOJ

Racial prejudice is taught. Its essentials are fear commingled with a steady continuum of supercilious ignorance. Its expressions are vile and particularly infectious when spewed by the many or endorsed by the powerful. Even after 200,000 years of evolving as a species racial bias remains an existent trait in all of us Sapiens.

Racism is a prejudice and bigotry that results in a bias usually expressed in some form of personal, civil, or criminal discrimination. The inclination for expressing racist thoughts respective of the source is ubiquitous and omnipresent in every culture and geographic sector of the world.

I believe there is plausible cause to suggest that such prejudice and bigotry have seeped from Eric Holder’s mindset into the Department of Justice. I think there is the probability that Attorney General Holder has a vengeful bias against “white people;” Mr. Holder’s definition of “white people” include “red neck” gun-touted, bible thumping, conservative Republican voters who he classifies as ignoramuses.

If Mr. Holder is not predisposed to look upon “white people” with prejudice then how does reasonable persons evaluate DOJ’s inquisition of the city and incident of Ferguson? An exonerated Officer Darren Wilson did not receive even a mention from Mr. Holder much less an apology. Secondly, the fabliau of Mr. Brown suffering a gunshot in the back as he was running for his life is an outright lie. Thirdly, the DOJ investigation disproves the vicious lie that Mr. Brown had his hands up trying to surrender. “Hands Up” is a blatant fabrication. Interestingly, the media provocateurs have transposed a blatant fabrication into a general thesis that the Ferguson police are a racist police department. Another fabrication is transferred into place. Except this one is from Holder’s DOJ.

Mr. Brown was a criminal. He physically attacked a police officer. He refused to obey the lawful orders of a police office. He wrestled and punched the officer. He tried to snatch the officer’s pistol. He charged the officer and was shot dead. End of story…





OBAMA, KERRY, AND PUTIN

Domestically, conservatives are suffering through the angst created by President Obama’s insistence on implementing a progressive ideological agenda; its most recent form was his executive order on immigration. Internationally, the angst is centered on tactical repercussions resulting from the strategic blunders committed by this president’s insistence that the primary cause of global conflict since the end of WWII was and is the heretofore worldwide implementation of American power.

I am puzzled and frankly a bit miffed by such an insertion. My evaluation of the enactment and persecution of American power is quite the contrary. For instance, when General Eisenhower naively, even unwisely, trusted Stalin as a true-blue ally and acquiesced to the Russians’ request in taking on what was left of the military resistance in Berlin, the general effectually rendered material support to a totalitarian regime that closely resembled Hitler’s Nazi regime. Certainly, this was not an example of America strong-arming its use of overwhelming power; instead, it was an exemplar of naive silliness, a stratagem that predicated the antithesis of President Obama’s vexing contention that American power is to blame for a world of conflict and mayhem.

The general’s imprudent silliness toward Stalin and his communist confederates caused irreversible harm to 50 million Eastern Europeans, divided Germany, and abetted the objectives of our enemies. It started the cold war while deterring the surety of global peacefulness.

In 1953, because he pledged to end the Korean War, the general was rewarded with the presidency of this nation; note that the general did not say he would deliver victory; he said “end the war.” So now we have a nuclear armed gangster Kleptocracy bullying Japan and South Korea because America did not have the confidence of will to face reality nor implement its power and force victory as the only settlement.

There are so many, many, instance of American weakness of will, coupled with the abysmal lack of intestinal fortitude. Currently, withstanding the sacrifice of blood and the expenditure of treasury, we are a nation of half-measures. We refuse to see the world as it truly is; preferring instead to live within a day-to-day surreal. We think of ourselves as characters acting out a HBO produced melodrama. Americans seem to believe that in the finality of finalities, the good guys always win. We cannot accept that Iran is the perpetrator of anti-American interest. We seem to think that ISIL, like a cold virus will run its course; President Obama is the Great Hesitator. His hesitations cost American and Muslim lives and treasure.

Putin thinks that Kerry and Obama are silly gutless politicians too afraid to face him. He bullies the Europeans as if in a grade school playground. He is the Grand Svengali of fearful dispose. While Kerry and Obama are awaiting the return of Tinker Bell’s fairy dust Putin never displays hesitation or contemplation. Putin is an amoral man who dares to act withstanding the consequences; Putin wants to impose. Obama wants to transform… and Kerry is befuddled that the Russians lie to him.
