March, 2016, Part 3, Political Class Insanity: A Clueless Secretary of State, Clueless Liberal Politicians, Clueless Chicago Politicians and More

It is the beginning of another month which means it is time again to review the latest political class insanity from the American political class. Each month it takes us multiple posts to cover the wasteful spending, incompetent government organizations and employees, government programs that usually make a problem worse than resolving it, inane and idiotic politician comments, etc.

To review past posts on this insanity and idiocy, just click on the first few posts in each month listed to the right of this page. After reviewing just a handful of these insanity posts we think you will agree that we are currently being served by the worst set of American politicians ever to hold office in our entire history.

Let’s get started with the latest insanity from today’s American politicians:

1) First, Secretary of State John Kerry lamely brought James Taylor to France to sing his hit song, “You’ve Got A Friend” after Obama insulted the world by not appearing in France with other world leaders to show solidarity against terrorism after the Paris terror attacks. Yesterday, we reviewed how Kerry was insanely enlisting Hollywood film moguls to fight ISIS, the worst, most vicious terror group ever.

But maybe today’s John Kerry’s lunacy tops all of these previous embarrassments. The administration recently released terrorist prisoner Ibrahim al Qosi to the Sudanese government. But before you know it, this released terrorist has now appeared in some al Qaeda recruiting videos. 

According to reporting by the Washington Free Beacon, Kerry was recently questioned in a Senate hearing about the situation. His inane response: “Well, Senator, he’s not supposed to be doing that. And there are consequences for that, and there will be.” He’s not supposed to do that? Can a high ranking Federal official be any more lame? He released a dangerous terrorist and expected him to stay on the honor system? You cannot make this garbage up. Unfortunately…. and unfortunately Americans may die as a result.

2) According to a recent article on the Conservative Post website, President Obama recently signed a bill that fights against the anti-Israel boycott movement. The new law forbids the U.S. government from any cooperation with any group involved with the Israeli boycott that targets Israeli businesses.

Sounds good and Constitutional. Congress puts together and passes legislation and the President signs it which makes the law of the land. Been doing it that way for well over two hundred years.

But I guess Obama is someone special. Shortly after signing the legislation into law, Obama rejected part of the law’s contents and claimed that he could ignore parts of the law THAT HE JUST SIGNED because it somehow interfered with his “Constitutional authority.” How insane is this. A President signs a bill into law and then unilaterally decides he does not have to obey parts of it that he does not like. 

If he did not agree with parts of the legislation, he should have vetoed it like other law abiding Presidents have done since George Washington. But that assumes that this President is law abiding, something that we have proved over and over he is not when it does not conform to his views of the world. I need someone to explain to me why this move to unilaterally negate passed legislation is not impeachable, illegal, and treasonous. Besides being insane.

3) There is no doubt that the world our political class inhabits between their two ears is very often not reality. Although I have never voted for a Republican for President since I began voting back in the 1970s and until 2010 I had never voted for a Republican for national office, I do seriously believe that many liberals today are living in a world where common sense does not exist. 

And when that liberal is a politician, then you can be sure that there will be no common sense used to pass legislation and resolve major issues facing this country. To show you how screwed up liberal politicians’ reasoning can be, consider the following realities and insanity from the Blacksphere website:

  1. If you think people who hunt and fish without a license should get arrested, but people entering and remaining in the country illegally shouldn’t, you might be a Liberal.
  2. If you want kids to get their parents’ permission to go on a field trip or to take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion, you might be a Liberal.
  3. If you believe you MUST show your identification to board an airplane, cash a check, buy liquor, or check out a library book and rent a video, but not to vote for who runs the government, you might be a Liberal.
  4. If you believe the government should prevent stable, law-abiding citizens from owning gun magazines that hold more than ten rounds, but should give twenty F-16 fighter jets to the crazy leaders in the Middle East, you might be a Liberal.
  5. If you believe that in New York City you should buy TWO 16-ounce sodas, but not one 24-ounce soda, because 24-ounces of a sugary drink might make you fat, you might be a Liberal.
  6. If you believe that an 80-year-old woman confined to a wheelchair or a three-year-old girl can be strip-searched by the TSA at the airport, but a woman in a burka or a hijab is only subject to having her neck and head searched, you might be a Liberal.
  7. If you believe the best way for your government eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more, you might be a Liberal.
  8. If a seven-year-old boy can be thrown out of school for saying his teacher is “cute” but hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class in grade school is perfectly acceptable, you might be a Liberal.
  9. If you believe that hard work and success should be met with higher taxes and more government regulation and intrusion, while not working is rewarded with Food Stamps, WIC checks, Medicaid benefits, subsidized housing, and free cell phones, you might be a Liberal.
Welcome to our insane new world, where common sense is in short supply, courtesy of politicians everywhere but especially liberal ones.

4) Many times we have reported on how the city of Chicago has the most stringent and restrictive gun control laws in the country, courtesy of Chicago politicians. And yet despite these draconian laws, Chicago continues to be a hotbed of gun violence and gun homicides year in and year out. And according to a recent article at, 2016 is no exception:
  • Just two months into 2016 and the Chicago homicide is over twice as high than the same time in 2015, according to Chicago Tribune reporting.
  • On a recent weekend, four people were killed in the city and another two were killed the following Monday.
  • 95 Chicago citizens have been killed so far this year vs. 47 in the same time frame last year.
  • 420 people have been shot vs. only 193 for the same time period last year.
  • 32 people in total had been shot the weekend before the Tribune reporting was published.
Now, I would bet that some politicians would want more gun control in the face of this escalating violence and focus their energies on making it more difficult for law abiding citizens to get a weapon to protect themselves and their families. Which raises a logic question: if putting in place more and more gun control laws in the past in Chicago has resulted in more gun violence and homicides in Chicago, why would you want to put in place even more gun control laws? Insanity.

This faulty logic is proven to be nuts in two ways. First consider, the recent words of a Chicago police spokesman where he calls for more gun control laws but actually makes the case for no additional gun control laws: “Every year Chicago Police recover more illegal guns than officers in any other city, and as more and more illegal guns continue to find their way into our neighborhoods, it is clear we need stronger state and federal gun laws.” 

The key phrase is “Chicago Police recover more illegal guns than officers in any other city.” “Illegal guns. Criminals are not going to abide by more gun control laws if they are not abiding by current gun control laws. What makes anyone think that making it more difficult for law abiding citizens to get a gun is going to stop illegal guns from getting into the hands of criminals? 

We have already in previous posts shown university research that verified that criminals do not get their guns legally or at gun shops or gun shows, they get it from underworld criminals and channels.

The second reality to killing the theory that we need more gun control laws is illustrated in the following graphic:

This map shows the homicide rates by Chicago police district. As you can see, much of the violence is focused in the southern part of Chicago. In fact, in some cases, southern Chicago police districts have a homicide rate that is more than SEVEN times higher than the homicide rate in some northern Chicago police districts.
Now, logic would tell us that if the lack of gun control laws was the cause of the Chicago’s overall violence, wouldn’t there be a lot of violence all over the city and not just in the poorer sections of the city? But there isn’t. Maybe, just maybe, the cause of the higher gun violence and homicides has nothing to do with the lack of gun control laws but the lack of economic opportunity in the southern part of the city? Higher economic affluence (northern districts) = less violence, lower economic affluence (southern districts) = more violence.Maybe if the local politicians did more to enhance the economy of the southern districts and wasted less time harping on the need for unnecessary additional gun control measures, Chicago would not be the hotbed of violence it is today. That will do it for today’s political class insanity. Chicago politicians’ actions making the city more violent, the false reality of liberal politicians’ minds, a President who enacts legislation then ignores it like any good dictator would do, and a Secretary of State that continues to be clueless. More insanity tomorrow.
