October,2017, Part 2, Political Class Insanity: A Delusional Hillary, A Major Taxpayer Win and The United Nations's Bad Priorities.

It is the beginning of another month which means it is again time to review the latest political class insanity from Washington and around the world. Political class insanity takes many forms including the wasting of taxpayer wealth, criminal fraud within government programs, inane and stupid political quotes and actions, the inability to create and implement effective and efficient government programs, stupid and ill performing economic policies and strategies, and other forms of insanity that continue to evolve and surprise and shock us.

1) It is not just the American political class that is insane, inane, and incompetent, working on issues that will make no one’s life any better. The folks at the United Nations also do a great job at doing nothing and having screwed up priorities. According to a September 26, 2017 article on the Fix This Nation website:

  • Apparently the United Nations has recently told Canada that it needs to pay reparations for slavery that ended over 150 years ago.
  • The United Nations Human Rights Council has told Canada to apologize for black slavery and pay reparations for their role in the slave trade and other forms of “anti-black racism.” In a report that was published this week, the special UN group said this about Canada’s current systemic racism:“History informs anti-black racism and racial stereotypes that are so deeply entrenched in institutions, policies and practices, that its institutional and systemic forms are either functionally normalized or rendered invisible, especially to the dominant group.”
  • Seriously? Canada did not become a self governing country until after Britain had banned slavery.
  • Canadians were active participants in operating the Underground Railroad that helped get runaway slaves to freedom in Canada.
  • No one involved in Canadian slavery is still alive so who is going to get the reparations?
  • Christians and other minority religion adherents are being murdered and enslaved across the Middle East and this is what the UN is working on, 150 years after the fact?
  • Women in dozens of Arab and other countries are repressed and denied basic freedoms and liberties and this is what the UN is working on 150 years after the fact?
  • There is a huge refugee problem in the Middle East and this is what the UN is working on 150 years after the fact?
  • But it gets even worse since not only does the UN want Canadians to pay reparations, it wants them to also erect monuments to the preserve the history of slavery: “It is important to underline that the experience of African Canadians is unique because of the particular history of anti-black racism in Canada,” the report says. It recommends that the Canadian government “take concrete steps to preserve the history of enslavement and the political, social and economic contributions of African Canadians by establishing monuments in their honour.”

It is impossible to predict what politicians and bureaucrats will do to make themselves look busy and important, creating stupid issues that do not exist while ignoring real issues that negatively affect millions of people. Such insanity.

2) One of the dozens of campaign promises that Obama made, all of which never came true, was that he was going to go through the Federal government budget “line by line” to ferret out wasteful spending. Noble gesture but non-follow up. Under his leadership, the Federal debt almost doubled from $10 TRILLION to an amazing and dangerous $20 TRILLION.

One of the most wasteful spending entities in the entire Federal government, the Pentagon, has such screwed up financial systems that trained auditors threw their hands up in frustration when they tried to audit the Pentagon's books, that is how screwed up they were. Obama did nothing that would have helped fix a dysfunctional Pentagon or any other Federal agency when it comes to wasting taxpayer wealth despite his promise to get rid of wasteful spending.

A prime example of how the Federal government wastes taxpayer money, both under Obama and previous administrations, was outlined in a recent article on the Occupy Deplorables website by Kirsty Jane on September 23, 2017.:

  • Traditionally, submarine periscopes have relied on clunky hard to find and use expensive joysticks/hand grips.
  • The Navy’s most advanced submarines, Virginia class,  are equipped with so-called photonic hand grips that are made by Lockheed Martin and cost the American taxpayer about $38,000 each.
  • These hand grips are designed for use only on Virginia class submarines and would be impossible to replace in an emergency.
  • To someone’s credit somewhere in the Navy, the Navy asked some junior officers what could be done to make their life easier and a consistent complaint was the clunky hand grips.
  • That led to a little research and it was found that hand controllers from a standard X-Box video game system worked just as well as the $38,000 custom made, clunky hand grips and and the X-Box controllers sold for only about $30.
  • Not only is the X-Box controller ridiculously less expensive than the current handgrips, but if they break a replacement is easily obtained from the local toy or electronics store.
  • In addition, since many current Navy personnel grew up playing video games on their own X-Box systems, training costs are also greatly reduced.
There Mr. Obama, was that so hard? A price reduction from $38,000 to $30 in the blink of an eye? How many other thousands of opportunities to save taxpayer wealth exist throughout the gigantic Federal bureaucracy and you could not come up with a single one despite your promise to go through the Federal budget line by line? Pathetically insane.
3) Yesterday, we discussed the insult and condescension that Michelle Obama heaped on American women who voted for Donald Trump last November. But she is not the only Democrat/liberal to blame others, and blame them in a truly insulting way, for Hillary’s defeat to a first time candidate. Hillary herself got into the blame game, finding someone else to blame for her humiliating loss last November.
According to Hillary, over 30 million American women voted for Donald Trump because they were too weak to stand up for themselves, that they allowed the men in their lives, their husbands, their brothers, their boyfriends, to force them to vote for Trump and not her. How much more insulting can you be to the women in this country to outright state that they are scared of the men in their lives and too afraid to vote for whom they want to vote for, obviously Hillary. Not a good way to win friends and influence people, calling them stupid and weak.
Hillary, lets put forth just a few reasons why these women may have voted for Trump and not you:
  • Given that you have condoned, abetted, and protected your sexual predator husband for decades, maybe they did not want to a sexual predator back roaming the halls of the White House.
  • Maybe they did not trust you with vital information as the President since you obviously could not be trusted to guard and protect classified information when you were Secretary of State.
  • Maybe they did not trust you when you deleted over 30,000 emails from an illegal and unsecured computer server and used a specific program to make sure those emails stayed deleted and were untrackable.
  • Maybe they looked at your Senate record and found that in your entire tenure you were able to get only three pieces of legislation passed that you were a primary sponsor of, especially since of the three named a post office and another of the three named a highway.
  • Maybe they looked at you hypocrisy of being critical of Wall Street banks in private but supportive of them in private, especially when they gave you very rich speaking fees.
  • Maybe they were just tired of your lies, from the true cause of the Benghazi attack (it was NOT some obscure video) to you landing under fire when visiting Bosnia (you did NOT land under fire) to saying all of your grandparents were immigrants (they were NOT), etc.
Yeah, Benghazi lies, other lies, rich speaking fees from bankers, an obscenely poor Senate record, deletion of emails, illegal and unsecure computer server, a sexual predator husband, they had nothing to do with your defeat. It was strictly 30 million American women being subservient to their male masters. Give me a break from your pure insanity.

That will do it for today: a delusional Hillary, saving taxpayers money with video games equipment, and bad UN priorities. More insanity to follow.
