Why do progressives politicians lie and get away with it? When a conservative politician gets caught lying all hell breaks loose in the media. The condemnation stories and commentary by the liberal media goes on endlessly. However, when a socialist progressive, a democrat, gets caught lying, it’s almost accepted as standard operating procedure.
Take for example, Bill Clinton’s famous “I did not have sexual relations with that woman” lie. It was later revealed that he did have sexual relations in the oval office with Monica Lewinsky. Of course, Clinton was later impeached, but that was just a slap on the wrist for the playboy of politics. With a lengthy history of sexual improprieties and creepiness, there are still liberal women that gush over him like some kind of rock star.
Remember Barney Frank who boldly stated there was nothing wrong with the housing market just before it collapsed. The same Barney Franks that didn’t know his same sex partner was running a drug and prostitute ring from his house. It’s examples like this that neither gets investigated nor are they prosecuted. Gross incompetence, immorality and criminal behavior seems to be an accepted practice within the progressive paradox.
Then there is the curious case of Elizabeth Warren who for years passed herself off a Native American Indian, Fauxcahontas. When it was later revealed that she may have committed “academic fraud” by describing herself as a minority just so she could get special status at universities, she claimed her high cheekbones made her look like a Native Indian.
A 1997 Fordham Law Review article described Democratic Senate hopeful Elizabeth Warren as Harvard Law School’s “first woman of color,” saying in footnotes that the information was based on a 1996 telephone interview with a Harvard spokesman.
So the prestigious Harvard Law School thinks a lily white woman a person of color?! After a genealogist looked into her family history, it was revealed that her great-great-great grandfather was part of the militia that rounded up Native American Indians known as the Trail of Tears. She has no Native American Indian in her linage at all! She lied! There’s a good chance she will lose the Senate election in Massachusetts to Scott Brown, but what would someone openly lie and think they wouldn’t get caught?
Makes you wonder about the value of elitist universities with a propensity to accept minority status of individuals that are not minorities. But why should there be any special status for anyone? Shouldn’t people be judged by their accomplishment? Remember Derrick Bell, the father of Critical Race Theory? Remember when a young Obama in 1991 praised the former Harvard Law professor for his thesis which is outright racism? If you’ve ever wondered what was wrong with our education and legal system, look no further than the progressives that support racism and inequality. Under the guise of victimhood, these radical racist communists have subverted the educational and legal system into a joke of justice.
There are dozens of stories like this, Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal, another socialist progressive democrat, lied about his military record by saying he served in Viet Nam, when he never served in Viet Nam. He later halfheartedly apologized for his “exaggeration” and defiantly said, “But I will not allow anyone to take a few misplaced words and impugn my record of service to our country.” You lied! Blumenthal went on to win the Connecticut Senate seat. He was rewarded, for lying.
The double standard is hardly limited to elected public officials; there are other progressives that apply this double standard to those with impeccable standards beyond reproach. However, there are those progressives in their lust for hatred of anything conservative will impugn good people, just because they are conservatives. I read an article from a blog that was extremely disturbing.
I can only describe this blog as an example of seething progressive hatred towards anyone conservative, in particular of conservative woman. In what I would classify as purely misogynistic and vile hate speech; this author weaves a hateful vitriol of people of faith. Apparently in an effort to sell his novel of religious hate, this author compares today’s media and political conservatives as fanatical terrorist. This is the religion of progressives; vilify people of faith as extremists. Call them vulgar names; compare them to the religious bigotry of a history long since past. Reading this person post is like watching Pink Floyd’s the Wall where the central character progressively goes mad dealing with his own loneliness and self-loathing envy of the world around him. Plus he writes like a teenager scrawling dirty messages on the bathroom wall. Simply pathetic!
These are the same progressives that make claims so outrageous, you wonder if they think that you are that gullible and stupid to believe their crap. Progressives are so envious of conservatives that they will deliberately attack the family and children of conservatives. We’ve all heard about Bill Maher and his attacks against Gov. Sarah Palin’s children. We’ve heard Obama’s operatives make disparaging remarks against Mitt Romney’s wife. We’ve listened to Nancy Pelosi, a Socialist Progressive and a Catholic; state that her faith compels her to support same-sex marriage. I was born and raised a Catholic and I’ve never heard of this before, and indeed, there is nothing in Catholic teachings that support Pelosi’s claim.
These are progressive woman attacking conservative women. Their sacrament is abortion. Progressives do not value life like conservatives do. It’s obvious in the comments they use to criticize women with infants born with birth defects. They criticized Gov. Sarah Palin for not aborting her Down ’s syndrome baby. They looked with disgust at large families with normal heterosexual and religious values.
It was the late Paul Harvey that said during one of his broadcast sign-offs in 1965: “If I were the Devil”
If I were the Devil . . . I mean, if I were the Prince of Darkness, I would of course, want to engulf the whole earth in darkness. I would have a third of its real estate and four-fifths of its population, but I would not be happy until I had seized the ripest apple on the tree, so I should set about however necessary to take over the United States. I would begin with a campaign of whispers. With the wisdom of a serpent, I would whisper to you as I whispered to Eve: “Do as you please.” “Do as you please.” To the young, I would whisper, “The Bible is a myth.” I would convince them that man created God instead of the other way around. I would confide that what is bad is good, and what is good is “square”. In the ears of the young marrieds, I would whisper that work is debasing, that cocktail parties are good for you. I would caution them not to be extreme in religion, in patriotism, in moral conduct. And the old, I would teach to pray. I would teach them to say after me: “Our Father, which art in Washington” . . .
If I were the devil, I’d educate authors in how to make lurid literature exciting so that anything else would appear dull an uninteresting. I’d threaten T.V. with dirtier movies and vice versa. And then, if I were the devil, I’d get organized. I’d infiltrate unions and urge more loafing and less work, because idle hands usually work for me. I’d peddle narcotics to whom I could. I’d sell alcohol to ladies and gentlemen of distinction. And I’d tranquilize the rest with pills. If I were the devil, I would encourage schools to refine yound intellects but neglect to discipline emotions . . . let those run wild. I would designate an athiest to front for me before the highest courts in the land and I would get preachers to say “she’s right.” With flattery and promises of power, I could get the courts to rule what I construe as against God and in favor of pornography, and thus, I would evict God from the courthouse, and then from the school house, and then from the houses of Congress and then, in His own churches I would substitute psychology for religion, and I would deify science because that way men would become smart enough to create super weapons but not wise enough to control them.
If I were Satan, I’d make the symbol of Easter an egg, and the symbol of Christmas, a bottle. If I were the devil, I would take from those who have and I would give to those who wanted, until I had killed the incentive of the ambitious. And then, my police state would force everybody back to work. Then, I could separate families, putting children in uniform, women in coal mines, and objectors in slave camps. In other words, if I were Satan, I’d just keep on doing what he’s doing.
Paul Harvey, Good Day.
This is so true of today’s progressives. They are exactly what Paul Harvey was warning the nation about. He saw these progressive coming years ago. He knew they were demonizing all the good values that made America great. Since the maculation of Obama in 2008, he and his progressive minions have been tearing down all the pillars of the Constitution. Socialist progressives like Obama have replaced the Constitution’s God given Rights of Life Liberty and Happiness, with Government Healthcare, Gay Marriage, and Class Envy. It is like some crazed drug addict took over the country.
Not so far from the truth, eh? All of the progressives in government are socialists. Their goal is class envy, the destruction of Judeo-Christian religious institutions and the American family values. The pendulum of liberalism has swung so far to the left that this country is on the verge of total destruction. The Obama regime is transforming a free market capitalist based economy into a government central planning entity. We are looking more like socialist Europe. Our economy is on the verge of collapse. As of today, our government has failed to pass a budget and spending remains out of control. Conservatives have put cost cutting budgets to reform our largest spending problems, entitlements. The Socialist controlled Senate has refused to consider any budget, by the conservatives and Obama. In May 2012, the Senate voted 99-0 against Obama’s budget to increase spending and to raise the debt ceiling.
When conservatives introduce a budget with spending reforms, the progressives set out to attack it. Progressives accuse conservatives of wanting Americans to breathe dirty air, drink dirty water and people with less health insurance.
Obama claims the stimulus has created jobs, but unemployment is still over 8%, and the real numbers are actually higher in certain demographics. Obama has spent Trillions of dollars on Green Energy projects that have either gone bankrupt or moved to China. Obama has directed the Environmental Protection Agency to impose regulations that have shut down businesses and put people out of work.
At a campaign stop in Youngstown, Ohio, today, Vice President Joe Biden lit into Republicans and their presumed presidential nominee Mitt Romney for what he described as a failure to understand the plight of the middle class.
“I resent when they talk about families like mine that I grew up in. I resent the fact that they think we’re talking about envy: it’s job envy, it’s wealthy envy; that we don’t dream,” an impassioned Biden told a crowd of manufacturing workers.
“My mother believed and my father believed that if I wanted to be president of the United States, that I could be, I could be vice president! My mother and father believed that if my brother or sister wanted to be a millionaire, they could be a millionaire! My mother and father dreamed as much as any rich guy dreams!
“They don’t get us! They don’t get who we are!” he yelled before the crowd, drawing loud applause.
Biden was referring broadly to Republican criticism of the administration’s push for higher taxes on wealthier Americans and expanded investment in federal programs aimed at boosting low- to middle-income families.
What people need to understand is that under the Obama regime, the uncertain economic conditions have gotten worse over the last three and a half years. Obama’s war on business has made companies doing more with less. Companies are not hiring because they cannot forecast a business future in taxes and regulations.
It’s not just shutting down oil drilling and coal mining, it’s shutting down farms and lemonade stands. It has just gotten out of control this government aggression. So if conservatives are in favor of dirty water and dirty air and no healthcare, then what are progressives for? Bankruptcy, joblessness and economic serfdom are what progressives want for America.
Obama is using class warfare to promote class envy. Obama has used healthcare to divide religious freedoms. Obama has used the sanctity of marriage to destroy the American family. This is the transformation of America Obama promised as Hope and Change. Apparently, being successful in America is somehow wrong. Obama makes success sound like the rich stole it from the poor.
I don’t believe this is what Americans believe in when they voted for Hope and Change. I don’t think most Americans understood what Obama was promising. The news media deliberately did not vet Obama’s background and the media continues to protect Obama from his abysmal record. There are fewer jobs and fewer opportunities. The problem is the economy and the progressives don’t want to change the economy. Listen to Debbie Wasserman Schultz dodging Fox News Bret Baier’s questions on student loans and the budget. The pure dishonesty by this woman is extraordinary.
She is the Democrat Chairperson, a socialist progressive that refuses the answer a question. She claims she knows what the American people want, but I don’t believe this is what the American people want in their government. She claims Obama has put forth several proposal, but that’s an absolute lie.
Government spending has to be slowed, reforms have to be enacted, but the progressives are going to drag the budget process to the end of the year. That will trigger massive tax increases and will destroy any economic recovery, such as it has been. The government doesn’t create jobs, but the government does eliminate jobs through over-regulations and needless restrictions. Higher taxes will force companies to lay off people. Consumer spending will slow as goods and services increase in cost.
The American people needs to answer a simple question; do we want another four more years of failed economic policies, job crushing regulations and higher taxes? Do we want a government spending its way into bankruptcy? Do we want a central planning socialist government? Do we want some government bureaucrat deciding our healthcare? Do we want the government to force us to purchase health insurance, or pay a fine? Do we want see the decline of America?
