July, 2016, Part 5, Political Class Insanity: More Death In Chicago, More Hypocrisy From Democrats, More Juvenile Name Calling And Just Plain 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. In fact, last month we set a record, needing ten full posts to cover it all.

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.

It looks like our politicians have been especially insane over the past month or so let’s continue with the latest insanity from today’s American politicians one day earlier than we usually do:

1) Unfortunately, we often come back to this first topic, including yesterday, but it is news even if the Obama-friendly mainstream media does not cover it. Chicago has some of the toughest gun laws in the country. In the Obama and liberal mindset, this is a good thing since it should greatly reduce gun violence and crime. In reality, their mindset could not be any further from the truth.

According to Fox News, dozens of people were shot in Chicago over the Fourth of July weekend despite increased police attention in the areas known for the most violence. Just between Sunday afternoon and early on Monday, July 4, 2016, a dozen Chicago residents were shot in that 14 hour period. The Chicago Tribune also reported that 32 were shot over the entire July 4 weekend. One man was died from his gunshot wound.

And this violence happened even though the Chicago police publicly proclaimed it would put a show of force on the streets for the holiday weekend. Why did they think they needed a show of force? Because in Chicago in June, on average 15 people were shot everyday. Despite the show of police force, a 15 year old boy and a 17 year old boy were shot and wounded this past holiday weekend.

And as time goes by, the Obama administration and the rest of the political class refuse to acknowledge and work on the root causes of the violence. The political class has been fighting and losing the war on drugs for decades but still insist on doing the same thing over and over which does not reduce drug addiction but does give rise to violent drug cartels and gangs. And the economic malaise that the current administration has caused to infect much of the country prevents people from lifting themselves out of poverty and the violent crime that usually follows poverty. 

But typical politicians, working on either the wrong solution to the right problem or the right solution to the wrong problem.

2) If America is to ever solve any of the major problems facing the country, than at some point in time the politicians in this country are going to have to sit down, start acting like adults, have a mature conversation about problem solving, and start respecting different viewpoints. Obviously, this message of adult behavior never got to a bunch of Hispanic Democrats as witnessed by a recent fundraising effort on their part, as reported by the Joel Gehrke of the Washington Examiner.

Mr. Gehrke reported that over the Memorial Day weekend, fundraisers for the Congressional Hispanic Caucus called on its supporters and fans to “give Republicans the kick in the teeth the deserve": "We MUST hit our emergency $50,000 dollar goal to give Republicans the kick in the teeth they deserve." This was the message from BOLD Pac, the campaign arm of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus.

They were reacting to some politicians in Oklahoma exercising their First Amendment rights and having a negative opinion of the job Obama has been doing as President. For this use of their free speech rights, others with a different opinion think they should be kicked in the teeth. Not very mature and certainly not conducive to adult and mature conversations on the issues facing America today. Pathetic and immature beyond belief.

3) Liberals and Democrats are always saying that there should be severe gun control laws in this country, if not outright confiscation, and that we should never build walls to keep people out of the country. They are certainly entitled to their opinion, that is what the First Amendment is about despite the actions of Congressional Hispanics as cited in the previous point.

What they are not entitled to is hypocrisy of their actions vs. their words. According to a recent article on the website, when the Democrats hold their Presidential convention in Philadelphia in August, it will have heavily armed security forces and the facility will be surrounded by a so-call “no-scale fence.” So common Americans should not have guns and walls to protect their families’ safety but the Democrats are okay with themselves being protected by a wall and guns? 

Several months ago, gun rights group Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA) urged the Democrats to forego the use of firearms at their convention: "Democrats have become known as the party of gun control. Virtually all recent gun control proposals at the federal and state levels have been launched and championed by Democrats. It’s time for the party to ‘put up or shut up’ about guns. The best way to do that is to forsake armed security during the convention.”

The CCRKBA also “noted the “overwhelming hypocrisy” of privileged liberal elitists who have traditionally opposed expanded concealed carry rights for average citizens while they continue to enjoy the protection of armed security. Front runner Hillary Clinton has stated that the Supreme Court was “wrong” in its 2008 Heller ruling about the Second Amendment. She has pushed gun control for average citizens, yet she enjoys Secret Service protection. If a political party believes that guns do not make us safer, they should set an example by rejecting any and all forms of armed security at their national convention. A party that does not believe in the right of individual citizens to keep and bear arms should not benefit from the safety provided by others who bear arms.””

Another favorite issue of liberals and Democrats is voter id laws, they think that anyone who wants to vote should be able to do so, no id necessary. This obviously is a stupid position to have, one that would encourage massive voter fraud, but somehow the Democrats think this is a good idea. 

But this exposes just another blatant hypocrisy of their position since at their convention press people will have to present identification in order to get their press credentials and access to the convention. Just another example where we live in two separate sets of rules in this country, one set for the vast majority of Americans and the other set for the political elitists where the elitists are protected by walls and guns and id rules and the rest of us are not.

4) One last subject today. This is a video discussion which can be accessed at:

It is a video tour and discussion of the formerly once great city of Detroit and what the political class did to it via their incompetence, corruption, and crony capitalism. Detroit was once one of the greatest and most affluent cities in the country. It had a thriving middle class, a vibrant manufacturing sector, and high personal and household income levels. 

Today, it is no better than a third world country. Unless we are careful, as the political class continues to overstep its Constitutional limits and continue to put forth some of the dullest bulbs in the box into office, Detroit is a precursor to what America could easily become unless we recapture the freedom and spirit of independence that the American political class constantly beat down.

Another day, another set of diverse political class insanity: A fallen American city, gross and mass hypocrisy from Democrats, more disgusting, obscene, and counterproductive political name calling and mudslinging, and still ignoring the violence problem of Chicago. More insanity tomorrow.
