YOUTH IS WASTED

It was George Bernard Shaw who is credited with observing that youth is wasted on the young. He said it in 1931, but it was truer than ever in the 1960s when young Americans decided they were the fount of all wisdom, and were encouraged in that belief by their parents, who in too many cases, abdicated maturity in favor of adopting a life style that included drugs, promiscuity and unbridled arrogance.

The only thing George Bernard Shaw or any adult might envy about the young savages is their boundless energy. But even at 78, I wouldn’t go for the deal if along with their energy, I also had to accept their ignorance and insolence.

When it comes to their take on history, economics, culture and religion, to suggest it’s merely half-baked is being far too kind. The little rats are ever eager to follow any Pied Piper who promises them free stuff meaning that which belongs to those who have actually worked and paid for it and who puffs them up with unwarranted flattery. Which explains how it is that slugs like Barack liar-nObama, liar-Hillary Clinton, Elizabeth dinky-Warren, Nancy Pulosi and commie-Bernie Sanders, have the same iconic status with the kids as movie stars and rock groups.

⦿   It recently came out that Donald Trump’s lawyer bought off a porn star to the tune of $130,000 in hopes of keeping us from finding out that Trump had an extramarital affair with Stephanie Clifford screen name Stormy Daniels.

I don’t think anyone is terribly surprised that President Trump had a hyper-active sex life before he took office. Frankly, I don’t really care. I figure that’s between him and Melania. What I find amusing is that when liar-Bill Clinton was accused of rape and of engaging in sex with a young intern, which would warrant a full-pronged attack from the ladies of the #MeToo movement these days, the Democrats pooh-poohed his perjured testimony to a grand jury as being of no consequence because it only involved something as inconsequential as sex.

⦿   We hear a lot about the necessity of doing something drastic to keep Social Security from bankrupting the nation. Some people have suggested that the retirement age be raised, others that the funds be privatized or that retirees who have other adequate sources of income simply not accept their monthly checks.

The problem was inevitable once FDR and his adherents in Congress foisted the Ponzi scheme on the American people. In the mid-30s, when the legislation was passed, people, on average, died at 67. Once they began living, with inconvenient regularity, into their 70s, 80s and 90s, the system fell apart because instead of relying on the monthly checks for a couple of years, people began counting on them for a couple of decades.

But as bad as that system is, the pensions to members of the public service unions are requiring states to keep increasing taxes to pay them off. There should never have been such a thing as a public service union. Even a besotted socialist like FDR thought it was a goofy idea. But when John Kennedy saw how easily they could be used in New York City to guarantee the re-election of Mayor Robert Wagner, he couldn’t wait to use them to ensure his own re-election in 1964.

The obvious problem with this state of affairs is that inevitably when it’s time to negotiate a contract, those on one side of the table are teachers, cops, DMV clerks, trash collectors, etc., and on the other side are gutless politicians who see an easy way to buy votes with other people’s money.

⦿   There is a good deal of present-day irony when it comes to those on the Left and their attitude towards Russia. Back when the Soviet Union was in full flower, everyone from the New York Times to Lillian Hellman, Paul Robeson, Dalton Trumbo and Franklin Roosevelt, were among Joseph Stalin’s loudest cheerleaders.

Even after the collapse of the Soviet Union, when Russia reverted to being just another third world troublemaker, Barack liar-nObama and liar-Hillary Clinton never stopped trying to curry favor with Vladimir Putin and his favorite oligarchs. liar-nObama even mocked Mitt Romney in 2012 for having the effrontery to accuse Russia of being America’s single greatest geopolitical threat.

It’s only since Trump’s victory that those on the Left suddenly decided that in a world in which Iran, North Korea and China, are clearly out to get us, Russia is our number one nemesis.

So much for liar-nObama’s flexibility and Mrs. liar-Clinton’s reset; now we need to crush Putin because the Russkies spent $45,000 on Facebook ads in order to influence an election in which over a billion dollars was spent by the principals.

Instead of setting our hair on fire over Russia, how about going after George scum-Soros who spends countless millions of dollars financing just about every nihilistic, anti-democratic, group in the nation, doing everything in his power to undermine our institutions, destroy our culture and trash the Constitution?

⦿   Someone recently sent me a list of absurd laws that have either been passed or are on the legislative agenda in Sacramento. He wondered if it was true or if he had been pranked by a friend.

I assured him that the loonier something about California politics sounded, the likelier it was to be true.

All you have to do is check on the people we keep electing, people like Jerry Brown, who is just as cockeyed in his 70s as he was in his 30s when it was, I believe, Chicago columnist Mike Royko who re-christened him Governor Moonbeam.

Just recently, Brown, who has decided that California should be s safe haven for illegal aliens, including those guilty of arson, rape and child molestation, declared that Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ filing of a federal lawsuit in opposition to California’s sanctuary state status was “a cheap political stunt.”

So, according to Brown, defending federal law is a cheap stunt, whereas trying to increase the number of registered Democrats by any means possible is the ideal that men like James Madison and Thomas Jefferson were seeking when they suffered the summer heat and humidity in the non-air-conditioned confines of Philadelphia’s Liberty Hall.

⦿   Years ago, I wrote that liberals were so open-minded it should come as no surprise that their brains fell out. Things have only gotten worse in the intervening years. In Seattle, the city fathers have decided that the municipal code will be revised to exclude all gender-specific words, including he, him, her and she.

Damn the expense! Some things are just so essential, the city council has no option but to prioritize pronouns over everything including repairing potholes and institutionalizing those living on the streets who pose a danger to themselves and others.

In related news, those on the Left have managed to exceed Baskin-Robbins’s boast that their 31 different flavors offered their customer the ability to savor a different one every day of the month. The loons have determined that there are now 37 different genders, a veritable smorgasbord that the terminally confused are free to choose from, starting as early as the age of four or five.

⦿  A few of my readers, noticing that I had begun replying to their email with all caps, assumed I was implying anger. No such thing. I was using capital letters because it made it made it easier for me, and, I assumed for them, to read. Believe me, when I get angry, I don’t rely on typography to get the message across.

ALERT ALERT

Hillary Clinton Was Not Formally Under
FBI Investigation At Any Time In 2015-2016

On Tuesday, Inspector General Michael Horowitz testified in a joint Congressional hearing to the House Oversight and House Judiciary panels about his review of the FBI’s (mis)handling of the Clinton email investigation.

House Oversight Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) came out swinging Tuesday in a a joint hearing held by the House Oversight and House Judiciary Committees.

Gowdy ripped into Comey in his opening statement, stating, “we can’t survive with a justice system we don’t trust.”

Investigative journalist Paul Sperry reported Horowitz dropped a bombshell in his testimony.

Horowitz revealed the FBI never named a target or even a subject in the Clinton email probe!

Sperry tweeted: BREAKING: IG Horowitz revealed in Senate testimony FBI never named a target or even subject in Clinton probe. Not Mills, Abedin, Combetta or Clinton herself. “Nobody was listed as a subject of this investigation at any point in time,” adding this was “surprising” for a crim probe

So neither Hillary nor her top aides were formally under investigation by the FBI at any time in 2015-2016, tweeted Sperry.

BREAKING: Horowitz revealed that Hillary was never really under formal investigation, never listed by FBI as a "subject" of investigation.

President of Judicial Watch Tom Fitton reacted to this bombshell bias from the FBI.

Tom Fitton  @TomFitton

.@RealDonaldTrump is a subject, but Hillary Clinton was never a "subject." Outrageous. Shut the Strzok-Page-Comey-McCabe-Lynch-Yates-Glenn Simpson-Steele-Brennan-Fusion GPS-Muller special counsel "stop @realDonaldTrump" investigation down.

tigation’ into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server was a complete sham.

No subjects were named, immunity was handed out like candy and Hillary was exonerated before witnesses were interviewed, including Hillary Clinton herself.

Hillary Clinton’s ‘interview’ with the FBI wasn’t even under oath.

Even more egregious, Hillary discussed pregnancy and babies during the majority of the 2.5 hour FBI interview because one of her lawyers was pregnant at the time.

Inspector General Horowitz also testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee Monday.

TEA PARTY TARGET

Targeting Of Tea Party Groups
John McCain’s Staff Director Urged Lois Lerner
And IRS To Engage In “Financially Ruinous”

Conservative watchdog group, Judicial Watch obtained IRS documents Thursday revealing backstabber Senator John McCain’s former staff director urged the IRS, including the corrupt Lois Lerner to engage in “financially ruinous” targeting of conservative Tea Party groups.

And they did.

The IRS Conservative Targeting Scandal involved:

  • Hundreds of conservative groups were targeted
  • At least 5 pro-Israel groups
  • Constitutional groups
  • Groups that criticized Obama administration
  • At least two pro-life groups
  • An 83 year-old Nazi concentration camp survivor
  • A 180 year-old Baptist paper
  • A Texas voting-rights group
  • A Hollywood conservative group was targeted and harassed
  • Conservative activists and businesses
  • At least one conservative Hispanic group
  • IRS continued to target groups even after the scandal was exposed
  • And… 100% of the 501(c)(4) Groups Audited by IRS Were
  • Conservative

Now this…

Via Judicial Watch:

Judicial Watch today released newly obtained internal IRS documents, including material revealing that Sen. John McCain’s former staff director and chief counsel on the Senate Homeland Security Permanent Subcommittee, Henry Kerner, urged top IRS officials, including then-director of exempt organizations Lois Lerner, to “audit so many that it becomes financially ruinous.” Kerner was appointed by President Trump as Special Counsel for the United States Office of Special Counsel.

The explosive exchange was contained in notes taken by IRS employees at an April 30, 2013, meeting between Kerner, Lerner, and other high-ranking IRS officials. Just ten days following the meeting, former IRS director of exempt organizations Lois Lerner admitted that the IRS had a policy of improperly and deliberately delaying applications for tax-exempt status from conservative non-profit groups.

Lerner and other IRS officials met with select top staffers from the Senate Governmental Affairs Committee in a “marathon” meeting to discuss concerns raised by both Sen. Carl Levin (D-MI) and Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) that the IRS was not reining in political advocacy groups in response to the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision. Senator McCain had been the chief sponsor of the McCain-Feingold Act and called the Citizens United decision, which overturned portions of the Act, one of the “worst decisions I have ever seen.”

In the full notes of an April 30 meeting, McCain’s high-ranking staffer Kerner recommends harassing non-profit groups until they are unable to continue operating. Kerner tells Lerner, Steve Miller, then chief of staff to IRS commissioner, Nikole Flax, and other IRS officials, “Maybe the solution is to audit so many that it is financially ruinous.” In response, Lerner responded that “it is her job to oversee it all:”

Henry Kerner asked how to get to the abuse of organizations claiming section 501 (c)(4) but designed to be primarily political. Lois Lerner said the system works, but not in real time. Henry Kerner noted that these organizations don’t disclose donors. Lois Lerner said that if they don’t meet the requirements, we can come in and revoke, but it doesn’t happen timely. Nan Marks said if the concern is that organizations engaging in this activity don’t disclose donors, then the system doesn’t work. Henry Kerner said that maybe the solution is to audit so many that it is financially ruinous. Nikole noted that we have budget constraints. Elise Bean suggested using the list of organizations that made independent expenditures. Lois Lerner said that it is her job to oversee it all, not just political campaign activity.

President of Judicial Watch, Tom Fitton had this to say about the newly obtained IRS documents showing more proof the agency was weaponized under Obama:

“The Obama IRS scandal is bipartisan – McCain and Democrats who wanted to regulate political speech lost at the Supreme Court, so they sought to use the IRS to harass innocent Americans. The Obama IRS scandal is not over – as Judicial Watch continues to uncover smoking gun documents that raise questions about how the Obama administration weaponized the IRS, the FEC, FBI, and DOJ to target the First Amendment rights of Americans.”
