October, 2018, Part 2, Political Class Insanity: Halloween Idiocy In Virginia, Hypocrisy In Tennessee and Double Standards For Hillary

It is 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.

Let’s get started:

1) Tim Brown, writing for the Freedom Outpost website on October 8, 2018, put forth an interesting scenario, in light of the circus that became the Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court hearings. His hypothetical situation was: what if Hillary Clinton had been put up for the Supreme Court by Trump, would Democrats have been as hard on her regarding her background and real historical actions as they were with a likely false, flimsy decades old, accusation against Kavanaugh?

Specifically, would Senate Democrats, and the liberal mainstream media, investigated the following areas regarding Hillary:
  • Did Hillary and Obama strand two dozen or so Americans in Benghazi to die and then lie about it under oath?
  • What was really in those thousands of emails that were deleted after being illegally stored and accessed by foreign agents?
  • Was the Clinton Foundation really just an international money laundering scheme?
  • How did the Clintons get so very rich, so incredibly rich based solely on government jobs and a supposedly charitable foundation?
  • What really happened in Haiti and the millions and millions of dollars that got donated to help that country’s recovery but which never got spent to help those in need?
  • Did Vince Foster actually kill himself or was there something more nefarious involved and what happened to those documents that were hurriedly removed from his office before his body was even cold?
  • How is that murder case of Seth Rich coming along?
  • How much money did the Clinton Foundation and Clinton family make as a result of the Uranium One sale to Russia?
  • What really happened decades ages concerning the suspicious Whitewater land shenanigans?
  • Did you really land under fire when you visited Bosnia or did you lie about that, given that the video evidence taken of your arrival shows no rush and no sniper fire?
  • Have you spent decades abetting, protecting and condoning the sexual predator habits of your husband and at least high ranking member of your campaign staff, opting not only to not to believer your husband’s victims but going out of your way to discredit and publicly destroy them?
I think the know the answer to this hypothetical situation. Hypocrisy would have reigned, the media would have done no investigations of any of these scandals and crimes and the Democrats in the Senate would have confirmed her with no questions asked. How do I know this? Because the Democrats and the media allowed her be a Presidential candidate with no trouble at all, her nomination to the Supreme Court would be no different since hypocrisy rules in Washington.

It is a shame, though. If the Democrats in the Senate and the mainstream media had gone after her multiple transgressions with the same vim and vigor they went after Kavanaugh over a single, likely false accusation, the findings, the political fireworks, and hopefully arrests would have been epic.

2) We are always talking about the lies and deceptions that politicians drop on us, either thinking that we are too stupid to figure out they are lying or they are too smart for us to figure out they are lying. Which makes it so sweet when their lying is caught on camera:
  • James O’Keefe has made a name for himself uncovering political lies via hidden video cameras.
  • He recently caught staffers from Tennessee Senatorial candidate, Phil Bredsen, stating that Bresden had publicly lied about his public support for Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court in order to improve his chances with voters in November.
  • Specifically, they stated: “Like, he wouldn’t really vote yes [for Kavanaugh,] would he?” an undercover reporter asked. “No, it’s a political move,” said one of Bredesen’s field organizers. “He thinks that, like, we’re down like half a point right now. It’s, like, really close and we’re losing by a point or two. So he thinks that if, like, by saying this he’s appealing to more moderate Republicans and he’ll get more of them to vote for us.”
Just another example where a politician will do anything, say anything, lie to anything just to get themselves elected, integrity and the good of the country be damned.

3) The Eagle Rising website, via an article by Warner Todd Huston, discussed a ridiculous effort by local politicians in Virginia when it comes to of all things, Halloween:
  • The city of Chesapeake in Virginia has a set of politicians who recently worked hard to pass a Halloween themed law.
  • Now, if you are a kid over the age of 12 in that city and you go trick or treating on Halloween, you are officially a criminal and could face a fine of $25 and face up to six months in jail.
  • Specifically, this is the effort that politicians wasted their time on: “If any person over the age of 12 years shall engage in the activity commonly known as ‘trick or treat’ or any other activity of similar character or nature under any name whatsoever, he or she shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and shall be punished by a fine of not less than $25.00 nor more than $100.00 or by confinement in jail for not more than six months or both.”
  • So the town politicians put this law in place with these penalties and then undercut their entire effort with the following statement on their website:.“According to the City of Chesapeake, police will focus on making sure the evening is safe for everyone, not actively seeking out violations of the time or age limits. For example, a thirteen-year-old safely trick or treating with a younger sibling is not going to have any issues.”
So they spent time on a stupid law and then cut out the guts of that stupid law by saying they will not enforce the penalties of that law. Insanity.

So let me get this straight: the politicians have fixed all of the problems in their city: there is no crime, no drug abuse and drug dealing issues, all of the potholes have been fixed, schools are outstanding, etc. After resolving ALL of the issues facing their voters, they got bored and decided to tackle the older teenager Halloween crisis. Or more likely, these politicians have no idea how to fix the real problems and decided to attack an insignificant problem, a wasting of time and taxpayer resources. 

That will do it for today: idiocy in Virginia, lying in Tennessee, and hypocrisy when it comes to Hillary Clinton. More insanity to follow.
