When the Absurd Becomes Reality! (Part 11)

Who Voted For That?
Just don't take the red pill. Whatever you do, don't take the red pill
By Dr. Robert R. Owens -- Bio and Archives

Who voted for an immigration policy whose purpose is to change the racial, ethnic and cultural make-up of the United States? That is exactly what the Kennedy Immigration Bill of 1965 was designed to do and just what it has done.
Who voted for open borders and constant calls for amnesty for anyone who can drag themselves across the border? Has anyone else noticed that the estimate of how many illegals are in the United States has been stuck at 11 million for at least the last 11 years?
Who voted for anchor babies automatically gaining citizenship? This has led to birth tourism wherein pregnant women from all over the world fly in, have their babies, go home, and then Uncle Sugar is on the hook for these babies the rest of their lives. This entire fraudulent practice is based on a blatant misinterpretation of the 14th amendment. The correct interpretation based on original intent is readily available for anyone who can click a mouse.
Contrary to the common knowledge of everyone successfully programed by the Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media and the public indoctrination centers once known as schools anchor babies are not found anywhere in the constitution. In fact they didn’t even exist until 1982 when Justice Brennan slipped them into the footnote of a Supreme Court decision. Notice I didn’t say into a Supreme Court decision. It is found only in a footnote.
And contrary to Bill O’Reilly and many other armchair lawyers this could be corrected without a constitutional amendment. All that is needed is a law which clarifies that Justice Brennan’s footnote does not carry the force of law. It’s kind of a no-brainer when you think about it.
Who voted for unlimited and unregulated abortion on demand? In 1973, the rogue Supreme Court out to remake America by fiat declared in Roe v. wade that all state laws regulating abortion were unconstitutional. Since that red letter day the blood of more than 57 million babies stains the hands of America. Our babies have been dismembered in the womb and had their skulls pierced with scissors as they were being born. Their bodies have been tossed like garbage into landfills, flushed down toilets, and sold for their organs.
Who voted for restricting the rights of lawful citizens to keep and bear arms? Over and over we hear about common sense gun laws. Every one of these proposals does nothing to stop criminals from getting guns. They are criminals, so breaking the law is what they do. All of these proposals have just one result: they restrict the rights of law abiding citizens since they are the only ones who follow the laws.
When the Bill of Rights was added to the Constitution it was because the so-called Ant-Federalists refused to ratify the document without these first ten amendments. The statements of the Framers as enumerated in the Federalist Papers and the demands of the opposition as enumerated in the Anti-Federalist Papers makes it clear that the 2nd Amendment was meant to give the people the right to defend themselves against personal attack and against tyranny. Criminals love unarmed victims and tyrants love citizens who cannot resist their authority.
Who voted for ObamaCare which destroyed the best healthcare system ever known to man and after six years we are told there are just as many people without insurance as there were before? Polls before its passage and since have consistently shown that the majority of the American people do not want this train wreck of a law. Yet despite our best efforts to make our opposition known this is shoved down our throats like a horse pill that chokes a patient to death before we find out it is really a placebo.
Who voted for our president to bow before despots and dictators? Never before in History has an American president bowed before a foreign leader or anyone else. Until the revolutionary presidency of Barack Obama it would have been considered shameful. No one ever imagined it would happen. Under the man determined to take America down a peg or two it hasn’t happened, once or twice or even three times. On eight separate occasions our president has bowed before foreigners not only showing his respect for them but also showing his contempt for us.
Who voted for the Fed to pump trillions of fiat money into Dodd-Frank banks too big to fail? Since the crash of 2008 the Federal Reserve has been printing money at an unprecedented rate. Where has all this monopoly money gone? To the banks too big to fail, of course, through the happy-go-lucky-how-can-this-ever-fail money machine known as Quantitative Easing. What a friendly sounding name for a galloping printing press. All this supposed money is adding to the national debt and still no inflation. I think someone should tell the geniuses at the Fed what inflation is: more money chasing the same number of goods. No inflation means no raises for anyone except the plutocrats who run the crony capitalist institutions and the government people who print the money. No inflation, right. Has anyone been to the grocery store recently?
Who voted for an economy that instead of recovering has plateaued at a new normal with over 90 million able bodied people out of the work force, only slightly more than 122 million working, and a government that calls this full employment? The government’s own statistics show that approximately 62% of the workforce is working. To me that looks like 36% aren’t working. Full employment is generally accepted as meaning, “The condition in which virtually all who are able and willing to work are employed.” Does anyone see a problem with this picture?
Who voted for any of this?
Oh, wait a minute. Anyone who has voted for a Democrat in the last fifty years voted for all of this.
To paraphrase Sam Cooke:
Don’t know much about history
Don’t know much biology
Don’t know much about a science book
Don’t know much about the French I took
Don’t know much about geography
Don’t know much trigonometry
Don’t know much about algebra
Don’t know what a slide rule is for
But I do know that if Progressives can fool you
And I know that if Progressives could fool me, too
What a wonderful world this would be
Just don’t take the red pill. Whatever you do, don’t take the red pill. Take the blue one. You’ll feel much better as we slide into the dustbin of History.

Hillary: Obama as Supreme Court Justice is ‘a great idea’
Elections have consequences

If you need another reason to vote for literally anyone but Hillary Clinton, here it is: She thinks it would be a “great idea” to make Barack Obama a Supreme Court Justice.  ...Or at least that’s what she says.
During an Iowa town hall, Clinton was asked about the possibility of letting Obama trash the Constitution for the rest of his life, because apparently 8 years just isn’t enough. According to Bloomberg, she responded as follows:
“I will certainly take that under advisement,” she said in Decorah, responding to a man’s recommendation. “I mean, he’s brilliant, he can set forth an argument and he was a law professor, so he’s got lots of credentials.”
She acknowledged that there might be a few obstacles in the way, first and foremost whether Obama would want the job after eight years in the White House. “He may have a few other things to do,” she said, “but I’ll tell you, that’s a great idea.”
There are a couple of things we need to remember about this.
The first is that Hillary is completely untrustworthy. If you believe that she genuinely admires, likes, and supports Barack Obama, I have some beautiful rolling land in the center of the Okefenokee swamp I’d like to sell you. There is no love lost between the Clintons and the Obamas, and it’s highly doubtful that Hillary will want anything to do with her former boss once he leaves office.
Hillary’s just tying herself to the Obama legacy (such as it is) in an effort to stop her liberal base from defecting to Bernie.
The second, and more important, point is that the next President will probably get - at least - two chances to appoint someone to the Supreme Court bench. Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Stephen Breyer are both rocketing towards retirement and the vacancies they leave will almost certainly be the purview of the next President.
If that President is Hillary Clinton, it doesn’t really matter who she appoints. You can bet your last two nickels that her selection will view the Constitution with exactly the same disdain as Obama. In fact, if she can find an uber-liberal candidate who’s “sellable” enough, you should presume she’ll pick someone even worse than our current Commander in Chief.
The bottom line is: If you like your rights, stopping Mrs. Clinton is imperative.

Why Do They Lie to Us Over and Over?
The major media has morphed from a watchdog to a lapdog barking on cue that everything is all right, there's nothing to see here, move along
By Dr. Robert R. Owens -- Bio and Archives 
January 22, 2016
http://canadafreepress.com/article/78361?utm_source=CFP+Mailout&utm_campaign=348aab53ec-5_20_2015&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_d8f503f036-348aab53ec-297723645
Joseph Goebbels, Hitler’s Minister of Propaganda said, “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”
Progressives and the Big Lie(s):
When faced with the highest levels of unemployment in American History why does the government trumpet a falling unemployment rate? In the face of overwhelming evidence of ineptness at best in Benghazi why do our hacks and their flacks insult us with answers like, “Dude this was two years ago!” With the obvious politicization of the IRS why does the president tell us there isn’t even a smidgen of corruption in the IRS while professional bureaucrats who really run this country take the 5th, stonewall, and lie?
The Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media regales us with oxymoronic statements such as, “Despite the unemployment rate plummeting, more than 92 million Americans remain out of the labor force.” The Great Recession grinds on in the lives of everyday working people while our leaders talk about a recovery that only benefits them and their cronies.If you live in Washington DC or the surrounding area you are probably doing fine, for the rest of us in fly-over country, not so much.
The shoes in the Benghazi scandal continue to drop finally reaching the point where even go-along-to-get-along John Boehner finally agreed to allow the House to vote on the establishment of a select Committee so that this long simmering embarrassment could hopefully come to the truth. Then again, as our once and future Queen said, “What difference at this point does it make?”
A funny thing happened on his way to becoming the Speaker of the House after Boehner fell on his sword for the Progressive agenda House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy said the entire Benghazi investigation was designed only to hurt Hillary’s poll numbers. He blew his chance for the big seat but at least he completely discredited the committee which also advanced the Progressive agenda.
Remember the IRS scandal. The one that was swept under the carpet?
Article 2 section 1 of the Articles of Impeachment filed against President Nixon was about the abuse of power. It stated, “He has, acting personally and through his subordinated and agents, endeavored to obtain from the Internal Revenue Service, in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, confidential information contained in income tax returns for purposes not authorized by law, and to cause, in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, income tax audits or other income tax investigation to be initiated or conducted in a discriminatory manner.”
Now 40 years later, under the Obama regime, the taxman cometh. When massive harassment of conservative groups by the IRS came to light as reported in The Daily Caller (DC) we were told:
Progressives were targeted, too
For months, Democrats and the media relied on the talking point that progressive groups also ended up on an IRS “Be on the Lookout” list while the agency was auditing and seizing information from conservative groups. But as The DC reported, IRS agents testified before the House oversight committee that the IRS scrutinized ACORN groups because it thought they were old groups applying as new ones; the group Emerge America was scrutinized for potential “improper private benefit;” and no evidence exists to prove that the IRS targeted any Occupy Wall Street group.
“Only seven applications in the IRS backlog contained the word ‘progressive,’ all of which were then approved by the IRS… [T]here is simply no evidence that any liberal or progressive group received enhanced scrutiny because its application reflected the organization’s political views,” according to an oversight committee staff report.
No White House involvement
“Not necessarily the White House” was the phrase that some Democratic “strategist” used when attacking one of our Daily Caller stories on cable television last year. He meant that while the IRS may have been corrupt to its very Washington core, President Barack Obama and Valerie Jarrett have not yet been photographed sifting through tea party applications at a desk in the Lincoln Bedroom.
But we do know, however, courtesy of The Daily Caller’s reporting, that Lerner exchanged confidential taxpayer information on conservative groups with White House officials including White House health-policy adviser EllenMontz and Deputy Assistant to the President for Health Policy Jeanne Lambrew, who just happened to be the most powerful official on Obamacare implementation within the White House.
A couple of rogue agents in Cincinnati
Ah, yes. The “WKRP in Cincinnati” Theory of 2013. You know the episode where the wacky characters in the Cincinnati office make a little “whoops” and take it upon themselves to target conservatives nationwide? A team of reporters from The New York Times, including dreamboat Nicholas Confessore, even went to bat for the administration on this theory last year, publishing a disgraceful article about Ohio-based “confusion” and “staff troubles” among “Low-level employees in what many in the I.R.S. consider a backwater.”
But at least five different offices ranging from Chicago to Laguna Niguel, CA. were engaging in this kind of “confusion,” and the whole excuse got torn down like Riverside Stadium. A Cincinatti-based IRS official said thatWashington “was basically throwing us under the bus.” The bus to the world-renowned American Sign Museum.
Lerner can still cite the Fifth Amendment
That’s what her lawyer, Bill Taylor, wrote in a recent letter to Speaker of the House John Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor, calling a possible contempt vote “un-American.” But it’s just not true. Lerner waived her Fifth Amendment privilege when she made a statement attesting to her innocence at a May 2013 oversight hearing. The oversight committee and U.S. House counsel both determined as much.
It could take years for the IRS to get all of Lerner’s emails
That’s what new IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, who has been threatened with contempt himself, told oversight investigators. But the independent group Judicial Watch managed to obtain emails showing Lerner coordinating with the Department of Justice to potentially prosecute conservative activists. It only took Judicial Watch one Freedom of Information Act request to get that stuff. “Now I see why the IRS is scared to give up the rest of Lois Lerner’s emails,” said oversight member Rep. Jim Jordan.When they were found and they did show not only that the conservative groups were targeted but also that the IRS tried to cover it up, nothing happened except Louis Lerner continues to receive her massive pension of over $100,000 per year plus we have learned that she also earned Up to $129,000 in bonuses for her exemplary work.
Don’t worry, federal government investigators are on top of things
Eric Holder’s Department of Justice tapped an Obama political donor to head its investigation. FBI investigators went months without contacting the conservative groups that were victimized by the IRS targeting, and leaked to the press that no criminal charges would be filed in relation to the case before much of the relevant information we currently have even came out.
The Obama administration’s investigation of the scandal was such a joke that House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte accused Obama and Holder of “undermining” investigators on multiple occasions, and joined with other House GOP leaders in calling for a special counsel to prosecute the case.
But if the investigation was a joke, here’s the punchline: The Justice Department has been the only investigative body to ask Lois Lerner any questions, at an off-the-record “Q+A” that was not under oath.
Only tea party groups were targeted
Good for the IRS for taking a firm stand against all those wacky tea party groups popping up out in Palookaville trying to exercise their little “First Amendment rights.” Bunch of Koch-funded rednecks.
But oh wait: The IRS also audited the Leadership Institute, founded by Morton C. Blackwell, which has been one of the Washington area’s foremost conservative activist training organizations since 1979, even demanding personal information about the institute’s college-aged interns. Oh yeah, and the IRS also told a pro-life group “you can’t force your religion” and tried to stop pro-life activists from picketing Planned Parenthood clinics.
The targeting is over now
Sure it is. Just ask Ron Paul and his group Campaign for Liberty’s donors about that.
Now the latest update, despite a court order to the contrary the IRS has deleted hard drives that held critical evidence in the agency’s on-going scandals.
And now the BIG LIE continues in the Benghazi scandal. The movie ‘13 Hours’ has come out. It is amazing, and every American should see it. Written by and based upon the experiences of three of the surviving heroes this movie tells the story that has been hidden from us for so long. In the aftermath of the release the families of the victims have once again come forward and said that Hillary told them at the coffin ceremony that a video was the cause of the attack. She also said that they would arrest the maker of the video. Subsequently some of Hillary’s emails, which were only obtained through a Freedom of Information request, a law suit and a judge’s order show that she knew this to be a lie at the time she used it to cover herself and the President at the time. She has admitted this is true at the discredited Benghazi hearings.
The families are saying Hillary lied. Hillary is now saying that she never blamed the video and in essence that the families are lying. Every news outlet is playing this like a “He said she said” debate. They are interviewing the families. Of course Hillary avoids interviews from anyone except her pet networks and their softball questions.
Here is my big problem with the big lie. One click of the mouse and you can pull up the YouTube video of Hillary at the coffin ceremony blaming the video. The maker of the video was arrested and spend time in jail. The one who lied to the families, lied to the nation, isn’t in jail, isn’t under a cloud of shame. No, they are now busy with the help of the Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media and their cable henchmen lying her way to the White House
Why do they lie to us over and over?
The easy answer is because they can. The major media has morphed from a watchdog to a lapdog, barking on cue that everything is all right, there’s nothing to see here, move along.
The best government money can buy has shown us that they can safely operate on the assumption that American voters choose their leaders based on the philosophy, “I know he’s a liar but I like what he says.”
