I suppose that the first four years wasn't such a great success. We have scandal after scandal, incompetence at the Department of Justice, the former Secretary of State under scrutiny, and now we have another charge of ineptness at the DOJ. Apparently, the Justice Department, the very same organ of the government that armed drug lords and provided the weapons to murder two Federal law enforcement officers and more than 300 innocent civilians South of the border, is now accused of losing terrorists that it allowed into the witness protection program and of allowing them to fly while still on the terrorist watch lists. This is in addition to the AP scandal where phone records were seized by the DOJ in a chilling move by Eric Holder's goons. In the real world, instead of government's ivory tower, Holder would have been fired long ago for his inability to run his office.
Holder and company also failed to prosecute the Black Panthers who were dressed in paramilitary gear and armed with nightsticks at a polling place for intimidating voters. Then there was the hushed up scandal of treating violations by blacks differently than violations by whites. Black violations of white civil rights were ignored, while those of whites were prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. That is racist, pure and simple. I don't know where Mr. Holder went to law school, but apparently they didn't bother to teach the man a damned thing about ethics.
Then there is the continual dripping of information regarding
It has gone from being blamed on a poorly made video to a terror attack. The
blatant lies told by Ambassador Rice was blamed on a CIA talking points memo.
Now we know that the State Department heavily modified the memo gutting all
references to terror prior to giving it to Rice and sending her out to the
press. That also makes White House Press Secretary Jay Carney a liar because he
said that it had only been edited once when in reality it had been edited
twelve times. Benghazi
Add into the mix that Obama's political enemies were targeted by the IRS for harassment and to keep them out of his hair and we have yet another scandal worse than that of Richard M. Nixon. When Congressman Issa's committee had Eric Holder on the stand and asked him if he saw any patterns of abuse in these revelations, Mr. Holder looked like a deer caught in the headlights when he responded, "no, I don't."
What we have seen from the Obama administration is a long pattern of abuse, corruption, and lies woven into lovely tapestries that the press has used to decorate their reports. Make no mistake, the press is just as guilty as the offenders for covering the eyes of the public and keeping them blind to the corruption within the government. Obama and his cronies are the press' boys and they all worship at the same political alter.
In the coming days you will see special prosecutors appointed and select committees appointed and
will finally learn just how bad the change Obama has brought to
really was and we will be appalled. Heads are going to roll. Americans believed
the lies of the left and to borrow a quote Obama's former pastor, "the left's
chickens, are coming home...to roost!" Washington D.C.

John Flannery, an attorney in
Virginia and a transplant from , wants to
remove the statue erected 100 years ago at the Loudoun County Courthouse. The
statues inscription reads, “In memory of the Confederate Soldiers of Loudoun
County, Va. Erected May 28, 1908.” Flannery wants it taken down because he says
that it scares people as they walk into the courthouse. He is quoted as saying,
"It deters people. It chills them from believing they can get a fair shake
in court." New York
First, Mr. Flannery, you are an idiot. I am proud of my Southern heritage. I have had family fight on both sides during the Civil War and I am proud of all of them. The tired, old meme that Southerners should be perpetually ashamed of themselves and of their Southern heritage is bullshit. That statue may make you shit your pants as you walk by it, but it had damned well better stay there. If you don't like it because it scares you to the point of pissing yourself, then relocate your sorry self somewhere else. I hear
is nice and
you would fit right in. I even heard that they want to get rid of the bear on
flag because it terrifies the pigeons. California
Here in the former capital of the Confederacy we have monuments to the men who sacrificed their all for their homes and families all over town. Should we cast those down as well? Or is it that you are just too chickenshit to visit
altogether? You are no better than a damned carpet bagger who took advantage of
Southerners after the war depriving them of whatever they had left. If you want
a fight mister, you have found it. Richmond
There are still a few true Southerners living in the South and I count myself amongst them. I hope they tar and feather your sorry ass and ride you out of town on a rail. Leave our Southern monuments alone Northerner. They were erected to remember our family and our past. Mess with them at your own risk.

From a philosophical standpoint, the truth is a funny thing because there are more than 20 different types of it. But when one speaks of the truth in general they mean factual truth. The left has so distorted the very concept of truth that it is nearly unrecognizable. Over at Western Hero, he has a quote from Dan Ariely who wrote the book The (Honest) Truth About Dishonesty. Mr. Ariely said:
"We lie. We cheat. We bend the rules. We break the rules. And sometimes, as we’ve seen in
, it all
adds up. But, remarkably, this doesn’t stop us from thinking we’re wonderful,
honest people. We’ve become very good at justifying our dishonest behaviors so
that, at the end of the day, we feel good about who we are. This tendency is
only getting worse, and, as innocent as it may seem, the consequences are
becoming more apparent and more serious." Greece
It wasn't always that way. There was once a time, not so long ago, where you could count on a man's word. But just in my lifetime, that has changed dramatically as both Western Hero and Mr. Ariely has noticed. I have seen people lie in a court of law, lie to the IRS, lie to their spouses, lie to each other, and I have seen the smiles they sport when they have gotten away with it and the tears that they have shed when they didn't. But of all of the liars that I have seen, the left is the worst of the lot by far.
Dishonesty is part and parcel of the left's DNA. They have manufactured scientific data to support the lie that DDT was harmful, they forged scientific data to support the global warming lie, they lied to ruin the careers of real scientists who oppose global warming, they lied to support eugenics and Margaret Sanger, they lie to support anything and everything of the left's political agenda and they brand anyone who tells the truth a liar in an attempt to ruin a good person's reputation.
For example, I recently had a back and forth with a leftie on another blog regarding eugenicist Margaret Sanger. As per usual, he supplied numerous links of questionable authority and claimed the high ground per his "evidence." Never mind that the left has a habit of forging so called evidence to back their political positions or that the left feels free to lie with wild abandon. When I did not engage him further he called me a liar and claimed victory in true leftist glory. Had he done that to my face, he would have lost some teeth. You see, I am old school like that.
I was raised not to tell a lie and to always be honest regardless of the circumstances or personal jeopardy. As I said, old school. Calling a man a liar without justification was an invitation to brawl. This was so because a man's honor had been challenged and if not answered with violence then that man was a coward. I have posted on another blog that we need to return to a time when a man was respectful to his fellows because if he wasn't, then he risked getting his head broken open. It was less civil back in the day, but it was more respectful. But dishonesty runs deeper than merely telling lies.
The recent revelations about the left's use of government organs as weapons against their political enemies speaks volumes about their lack of morals. Using the broad powers of the IRS to intimidate and to harass political enemies is a dark and vile practice. It not only coats the left with the pallor of the villain, but it also corrupts the reputation of the government which is supposed to be neutral and by so doing people can no longer trust their own government courtesy of these jackals. When the lines of responsibility are traced, I suspect that the White House in general, and Valerie Jarrett in particular, will be responsible for this perversion.
It was Ms. Jarrett's office who attempted to pervert the National Endowment for the Arts some years ago. They spoke of using taxpayer money and using code words to evade detection for this corruption of the system. That is until the story broke open on Brietbart. While Jarrett was not implicated directly, her office certainly was. Now we see that the IRS has been weaponized by the left and that conservatives have been targeted for persecution. Wonder who at the White House would do such a thing? Couldn't have been Ms. Jarrett could it? She learned her lesson from the last time didn't she?
You see, government agencies don't do anything without the boss's approval. That's a good way to get your manhood slammed in a door. As the senior brass at IRS knew about this persecution and lied about it to cover their own misdoings, one can be certain that they were doing what they were told to do and covering their boss's ass. Then there is the State Department and it's lies about
The White House Press Secretary, Jay Carney, strutted out before the nation's press and lied to the American people. He said that the talking points that Ambassador Rice had been given were only edited once. They were not, they were edited numerous times and all references to terror were stricken form the CIA memo by Victoria Nuland who was apparently working on orders from Hillary Clinton. Despite this, Secretary Clinton and President Obama blamed a poorly made video and a spontaneous demonstration for the attack that killed the Ambassador and three other Americans when they had direct knowledge that it was a terrorist attack by elements working for Al Qaeda. They lied to the families of the dead, to the American people, and to the press. Worse, the press was looking to help them get away with it.
In collusion with the White House, the mainstream media has tried to pawn off the story of leaving Americans to die on foreign soil to the fevered imaginations at Fox News. To CBS, ABC, NBC, MSNBC, and CNN it was all much ado about nothing. Until the testimony from the whistleblowers left them unable to do so. Now, all of a sudden, it is major news. Wait, wasn't all this just hyped up pipe dreams of Fox? This is a watershed moment in history. Like the anti-war protestors in the 1940's who were against the U.S. entering the war before the Germans attacked the Soviets and then turned into pro-war activists 24 hours after the invasion, the news has shown its true leftist colors. But that isn't all that they have shown.
The media and the Democrats have been in bed with each other since the 1950's when Newsweek and the DNC plotted on the best means of targeting and taking out Senator Joe McCarthy. Since those days, they have worked within the Democratic party, promoted a Democratic agenda, and covered for Democratic abuses. That isn't true for the Republican Party. They use a magnifying glass and a fine tooth comb to get dirt on those guys. There was a time where they at least tried to maintain the illusion of objectivity, but that time has long since passed and now folks like Chris "tingles" Mathews are the norm on broadcast news where better than 70 percent of them favor the left and attempt to skew the news in the left's favor.
In addition to covering for the left, there have been cases where groups of journalists have conspired to harass and attack the Republican Party. The now infamous JournoList was created with that purpose in mind by Ezra Klein, who now works for The Washington Post, and used the list to lie about Republicans to keep them off balance and to prevent them from attacking Obama because they were too busy fighting the fires that he started. The malfeasance of the press prevented the vetting of the candidate and stories regarding his racist minister and his ties to terrorism from being explored paving the way for his 2008 victory. And they have never been called to account for it, nor will they be called on to explain their assistance to the President in helping to cover up
. If there is such a thing as
journalistic ethics, those guys tossed it overboard long ago. Benghazi
As bad as the details that I have enumerated here are, there is much, much worse that I have not delineated. Like Sandy Berger stealing classified documents from the National Archives to prevent the truth from being known about his boss or the fact that the records regarding Senator Joe McCarthy held at the National Archives have been altered as late as 1994, or the fact that Hillary Clinton was proven a liar when she testified before Congress that she had no input regarding the security situation in Benghazi and that State Department security experts made all of the decisions about consulate security and then her signature shows up on a State Department memo denying additional security for Benghazi.
There is also the fact that former Speaker of the House Pelosi is a liar as proven when she said that she had no idea that water boarding was taking place because she was never advised prior to its implementation. But the CIA has records that prove that she lied and was informed on at least two separate occasions prior to the tactic being used and she approved of it before its use. And the list goes on, and on, and on.
You hear about the lefties saying that Bush was a liar and that there were no WMD's in
. What they
don't tell you is that it is a fact that Saddam Hussein did try to acquire
yellow cake, it is a fact that WMD's were found months after the occupation of
Iraq, but the news never reported it, it is a fact that civilian planes were
stripped of their seats and were flown to Syria repeatedly with an unknown
cargo, it is a fact that Bush's intelligence reports were mirrored by foreign
intelligence, it is a fact that 14 UN resolutions compelled Saddam Hussein to
allow UN inspectors to access all areas of his nation and he never allowed them
that access, it is a fact that that Saddam Hussein used chemical weapons on his
own people. It is also a fact that there was linkage between Iraqi intelligence
and the 9/11 bombers. Those are the facts that the left will never tell you
because it doesn't fit their narrative. They would just rather say that he is a
liar and move on. Iraq
The trouble with a liar is that they will always demand evidence from everyone else because they know that they cannot be trusted. Because they cannot be trusted, they automatically assume that you cannot be trusted either. With the advent of the internet, they now have dozens of sites with fabricated information to back up their lies and misinformation. Of course, that is exactly what they accuse we conservatives of doing.
Therefore, I see no end to the polarization of the population. When one segment of the population uses lies, weaponizes the government, fabricates data to support their arguments, and accuses their opposition of being liars merely because they themselves can no longer be trusted, there can be no unity between right and left. The poison of the left has done its job admirably and has destroyed a nation built on the very concept of a united and equal people.
In Islam, the truth is also tortured and twisted. It is just that they have a name for it. They call it Taqiyya and they use it to hide their intentions while they tell the Kafir what he wants to hear. Is it any wonder that the left and Islam are such close friends? The left even venerates domestic terrorists like Bill Ayers, Bernadine Dohrn, and Kathy Boudin, among others treating them like leftist Shaheed. It is just that the left plans to stab Islam in the back when they have achieved their political goals.
Silly Westerners, Islam will have none of that and they will kill you for trying. Islam will not be used like toilet paper and they have plans for you as well. There is also no such thing as extremism in Islam. The moderates are the odd man out, not people like bin Laden. They follow the Koran like they are supposed to do and live their lives based upon the example of Muhammad. The moderates do not. That is who you plan to betray.
I will close with a quote from President Obama's chief advisor, Valerie Jarrett, "Our whole philosophy is one of transparency."
To which I say: Bullshit
