Apologies to Bunker for taking SOOOO long!

The Crazy Train
by The Bunker

What; you don’t want to climb on the crazy train?

All Aboard!!!! Sorry, someone has already purchased a ticket for you and for me and for everyone on the planet.

I have read Mark Steyn’s two books on the end of America and I am familiar with Naomi Wolf and have watched a few of her speeches on YouTube.

There is one word that explains why I hold information back; the word is, DENIAL.

Denial is a mental self defense mechanism. When people are confronted with information or events that bombard their personal reality, they shut down. Many times they push back with anger. “That can’t be true, I don’t want it to be true, if that’s true I don’t want to think about it, it’s too negative and I only think about positive things!!!” On and on people will do anything, say anything, and believe anything just to avoid having their image of the world shaken by the Truth. Why? Because if people let the Truth settle in, then it scares the crap out them! No one wants to feel helpless and at the mercy of evil. Also, it would mean that strong and decisive protective action (self defense) would need to happen. It is a total disruption of a person’s illusion of safety and the ideals of our country and how far from those ideals we have fallen.

Once Again, We Play a Dangerous Game – Part II
by The Bunker

This nation is in no position to dictate to the Russians. The current batch of leaders on both sides of the aisle need to keep their mouths shut. If Putin wants to expand the empire to the English Channel and wave happily to Great Britain there is not a whole lot (outside of nuclear war) we can do about it.

China will back Russia, they already have. Think long and hard about that reality. If our leadership continues pushing, there will be a global shift in power. It won’t be in our favor.

The current leadership is not the whole problem. This started a long time ago. The situation we find ourselves in is our own fault. We let our political and elite class sell us down the river. Now we are about to pay for it.

Mao said, “Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.” It’s a nasty quote but it’s true. A nation needs to be able to build that gun and all the other tools of war to wield political power.

Once Again, We Play a Dangerous Game – Part I
by The Bunker

“Once more, we play our dangerous game, a game of chess against our old adversary – The American Navy. For forty years, your fathers before you and your older brothers played this game and played it well.
But today the game is different. We have the advantage.”
~ Captain Ramius ~
The Hunt for Red October, 1990

How soon we forget. But the Russian’s don’t forget, they will never forget. They enjoy the game, they live to play the game.

Talk radio and Fox news are struggling to stuff the current situation in the Ukraine and Crimea into the worn out republican vs. democrat cage match. Political mouthpieces are proclaiming that the Russians see weakness in our president and his administration. The old war horse, Dick Cheney said, “There’s no question Putin believes [Obama] is weak,” Cheney said. “We have created an image around the world, not just to the Russians, of weakness and indecisiveness. The Syrian situation is a classic. We got all ready to do something, a lot of the allies signed on, at the last minute Obama backed off.”

There is no doubt America’s foreign policy is a jumbled up mess. The current administration and this president are not up to the task of dealing with the Russian’s. Pictures do paint a thousand words.

P vs O

We are in trouble, big trouble. The risk of a third world war is very real. Two world wars started because of tensions in this part of the globe. There is no reason to believe it won’t happen again.

Sandy Hook, Revisited (Guest Commentary)

Sandy Hook, Revisited
by The Bunker

This is not an easy post for me to do. I have been working on a separate post about denial and I find myself wanting to deny what I am about to lay out. But, something has come to my attention that needs to be put out into the greater public realm. This is about the Sandy Hook school shooting of December 14, 2012. There is an enormous amount of misinformation floating around on the internet. Much of it borders on scandalous.

Recently one person has stepped forward who is not a kook or basement dwelling internet conspiracy theorist. Wolfgang W. Halbig is a legitimate expert. His credentials are meticulous. You can view them on his Facebook page. Here is just a brief outline:

Childrens Safety Institute, (cached biography), Wolfgang Halbig (entire site removed)

Wolfgang is a nationally recognized school safety and security professional who has done extensive work in researching and developing the “Standards for Safe Schools”. He is an expert witness in the field of school safety and security. He has testified before a Congressional Commission studying school safety and security. Wolfgang was the former Executive Director of the National Institute for School and Workplace Safety. Wolfgang was also appointed by the Florida Governor to serve on the State of Florida Safe Schools Commission.

Wolfgang is also the author of a book for educators and school bus drivers on aggressive behavior management and the use of reasonable force, as well as numerous magazine articles. His article on “Breaking the Code of Silence” was published in the March 2000 edition of the American School Board Journal. He has been a featured guest on many national news programs including Dateline NBC, Good Morning America, and MSNBC.

Wolfgang was the Director of Safety and Security for a large public school system in Florida and brings to the company a national reputation in school safety, education and law enforcement. He has experience with U.S. Customs and as a Florida State Trooper. After leaving law enforcement, he went into education as a teacher, administrative leader, and finally Director of Safety and Security. His 35 years of work experience is a major asset to any involvement with safety and security.

The reason this biography is from a cached version of the Children’s Safety Institute website is because the site has been pulled. This month Mr. Halbig lost his job with the institute. He has also been visited twice at his home in Florida by detectives from the Lake County Sheriff’s office who were on a mission for the Connecticut State Police. Mr. Halbig was informed that if he didn’t cease and desist with his Freedom of Information requests to various officials in Connecticut he would be arrested and charged with a felony.

The Constitution, Ignored and Abused (Guest Commentary)

The Constitution, Ignored and Abused
by The Bunker

The Constitution of the United States of America is no longer a reliable document. To continually argue the constitutionality of the innumerable laws and regulations that have been written under the sanction of the Constitution is a moot point. The sections and clauses that make up this document and the supporting documentation as to its purpose are becoming historical anomalies. When the supreme law of the nation is continually broken, abused and ignored it no longer has continuing authority. When lawmakers contort themselves into illogical arguments to explain and justify their illegality and un-constitutional actions it debases the intent of the document. When politicians consider themselves and their political parties to be the legitimate owners of the United States of America and not the people, the republic is lost.

How many times does a law need to broken before it ceases to be effective? Let’s look at just one example, the 4th amendment.

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Any mature individual who can read English understands what this means. Unless the government and its agents have probable cause and a legal warrant signed by a judge the people are to be left alone.

The Patriot Act (sic) completely destroys this amendment. The National Security Agency violates this law every day. The IRS ignores this guaranteed right of the people with complete immunity from prosecution. The Department of Homeland Security and the TSA disregard and break this law consistently. The FBI uses National Security Letters and warrantless search tactics to invade the citizen’s privacy. It is a joke that this amendment is even considered valid law.

Arbitrary enforcement of a law also makes it invalid. If it is illegal for someone to walk into their neighbor’s house and poke around, then it is also illegal for the government to do this without a warrant. Any person who understands the 4th amendment knows this. The politicians and law enforcement officers chose to ignore the law. These abuses occur every day. The people in power, who could stop this, just look the other way.

The size and scope of the federal government has exploded over the last 60 years. It now has the power to control every aspect of our lives and does so with complete disregard for the citizens Natural Rights. For some perspective on he enormity of the intrusion of this creature just spend a few short minutes at this entry at Wikipedia:

List of United States federal agencies

There is nothing in our daily lives that the federal government cannot control. It does this by two very sinister means, through the threatened theft of our property and the threat of violence to our persons.
Now, the federal government through the power of the Federal Communications Commission wants to install, “monitors” in local newsrooms and newspapers. The president by executive order has granted himself the power to turn off the internet and broadcast his message via our computers and cell phones.

Obama signs order outlining emergency Internet control

Historically, nations that have moved this far down the path of totalitarian control have not reversed course without a major upheaval. There is no strong, outspoken and powerful political balance to this abuse and it will only get worse. The next election cycle cannot change this. The beast is now roaming within our borders. Tyranny is here.

Individual Freedom and Liberty is not given by a politician, a political party or a government. Natural Rights cannot be obtained by asking for them. The citizens need to understand and accept the responsibility for their Rights. If not, then the Constitution and all it stands for will never be reborn.

Shade Tree Mechanics Need Not Apply (Guest Commentary)

Shade Tree Mechanics Need Not Apply
by The Bunker

What a sorry state of affairs. It has been said that America is a nation that has tens of thousands of rules and regulations to enforce ten simple laws.

The controllers in government have taken a beautiful machine that was designed to carry the human race along the path of Freedom and attached so many rules, regulations, warning stickers and restrictions that the machine no longer moves.
These mechanics then stand around and bicker over whether to add more devices or remove a label in hopes the machine will operate again. Everyone ignores the reason the machine was built in the first place!

The riders of the machine have no true understanding of where the vehicle is suppose to take them. The citizen is told that in America they have Freedom and with this Freedom they have Rights. The people parrot the controller’s words and chant, “USA, USA!” while armored vehicles roll through their neighborhoods and men with machine guns force them from their homes (Boston, 2013).

This juvenile understanding of what Freedom means is analogous to a father telling his son that to be a Christian the child only needs to say the word, “Jesus” twice a day!

The American machine of Freedom came with an operator’s manual; it is called the U S Constitution. It lays out in simple detail how the machine is supposed to be used and maintained. Shade tree mechanics have tossed the handbook into the burn barrel and now stand around and scratch their heads.

The mechanic’s who ruined our Freedom machine tell us to, “Trust them” that they can fix the machine. If we just let them, “add this to that, turn here and scribble there, insert this and remove that” everything will be alright and the machine will be as good as new.

The True knowledge of individual Freedom and Liberty empowers the citizen to stand up and proclaim in the loudest voice, “NO, you have done enough damage already! Go away leave us alone. We the People have copies of the operator’s manual and will fix the machine OURSELVES!”

The American machine of Freedom was designed to be operated by the people. No shade tree mechanics needed. To keep the machine running, the people through knowledge of Freedom and Liberty and Natural human Rights can ride the machine in the Pursuit of Happiness.

The operator’s Knowledge can only be attained by studying the reason the machine was created. The Truth is the fuel that started the machine running in 1776.

The people need to refill their personal tanks with this Truth. The spirit of individual Freedom created a nation of Freemen who overflowed with enthusiasm for Liberty.

The shade tree mechanic’s do not want you to know the Truth. They want us ignorant so the bill keeps get larger and larger until they own us and our machine.

There are no easy fixes. There will be pain and suffering, scratches and sore muscles. We might even go bust before the machine is restored. The machine was not designed to provide an easy ride.

There is one Truth that cannot be denied. The machine of Freedom was built to be operated by the People. Shade tree mechanics need not apply.

Regaining The Spirit Of Freedom – Part I
by The Bunker

“We’re not going to be waiting for legislation in order to make sure that
we’re providing Americans with the kind of help they need,”
and that “where Congress isn’t acting, I’ll act on my own.”
Barack Obama, January 2014

I am going to ask you one simple question:  “In America where do your rights come from?”

I am fairly certain that the majority of you answered, “From God.”   How certain are you? Absolutely 100%, no doubt in your mind, your rights come from the almighty Creator?

I agree, you are correct!

Here’s the scenario:

You come home from work. You enter your house through the back door and toss your car keys on the kitchen counter. You here a noise upstairs, you are certain that there should be no one else in the house. You know this because you just talked to your spouse on the phone and they have the kids with them at the store. As a good American, you have a weapon. You place the weapon in your hand and slowly make your way to the stairs. Just as you enter the hallway, the noise gets louder; someone is racing down the stairs. You and the intruder reach the front door at the same time. You shout, “Stop I have a gun!” The intruder is fumbling with the door handle. Suddenly, the intruder turns to face you. You fire your weapon, the victim slumps to the floor.

It’s About Time For Darwin
by The Bunker

I have been under female scrutiny for my lack of due diligence in providing material to this digital playground. (Ol’ Broad: “HUMPH!”)  In my progression to old age, the squeals of estrogen, and then menopause, have left me with considerable hearing loss. If I’m lucky, the good Lord will someday hear my pleas for total deafness. Now if I could only forget how to operate my email. (Ol’ Broad repeats: “HUMPH!”)  Just kidding, the truth is, I’m just lazy.

Let’s get started!

Our sons gave my wife and me a fine present for Christmas, a one year subscription to Netflix. I guess they figured Ma and Pa would spend more time together in the same room. It worked! Now all we need are bandages and antiseptic for wounds suffered during the remote control cage matches.

I did win one battle royale and got to watch, “Stargate” the movie with Kurt Russell. Great movie; however, because of my superior skills at reading symbolism I solved the puzzle of the seventh symbol in the first five minutes. Other than that, it was a fine historical documentary.

Today a flatlander with Illinois plates whizzed past my 18 wheels of boredom and I noticed this symbol on the back of his electric shoebox on wheels.


The battery powered contraption had just vanished into the snowy Wisconsin haze when my male intellect provided the answer. Jesus had feet! Fantastic! But, a few miles later I realized that couldn’t be right. So I let my left brain shake hands with my right brain and hypothesized that this symbol was part of an incomplete sentence. Here’s how it should have been displayed:

More Proof Of Who We Are
by The Bunker

Mr. Pye goes in several different directions trying to cover so much in such a short time. I would disagree with him on some things but the DNA conclusions he reaches in the last 1/3 of his presentation fits exactly with Dr. Steven C Meyers of the Center for Science and Culture and the Discovery Institute. Dr. Meyers is a proponent of Intelligent Design.

The recent passing of the Comet ISON folds together with the Sumerian description of how our solar system started. The comet was reportedly on a 4 billion year orbit. This coincides with the Sumerian timetable of planet collision which created the asteroid belt and the icy objects that we know as comets.

Another recent discovery of DNA from 400,000 year old bones is another clue. In the article on this discovery it was not reported how many strands of chromosomes this DNA contained. Was it 46 or 48 strands? 48 strands would be pre-human like the primates. 46 strands would be human, or genetically modified.

All the discoveries in DNA research are going to eventually put the final nail in Darwin’s coffin. Real science will be used to end this stupid theory of evolution. I have read some of the Genetic research journals and while I may not understand the complexities of the research it is clear that the researchers are having a hard time holding on to Darwin’s outdated ideas.

The Sumerian culture is the least taught of all the ancient societies. Why is that? Everything always begins with the Babylonians who were Sumerian descendents. Mr. Pye and Zachiara Stichens make some astounding claims on who the Sumerians were and where they came from. But, applying common sense and simple logic based on what we all see around us their claims are not that strange.

Ancient aliens coming to earth to mine for gold, that’s crazy talk!! Why? Why is it that humans have this weird fetish over gold? It’s just another mineral, hard to find, but so is platinum or silver or even uranium. Why is gold the one metal we obsess over? In Genesis Chapter 2 verse 11 and 12 gold is mentioned. Why? Why would they care about gold or any mineral?

I got interested in archeology during the 1960′s when the Aswan Damn was constructed in Egypt. The stories appeared in either Life or Look magazine. I remember the pictures of the huge cranes lifting the statues at the Ramses Temple. The statues had to be cut in sections to lift and move. I remember thinking, “Now, wait a minute, just how in the heck did the Egyptians put these statues in place when we can’t even move them in one piece?!” That’s when I started to think we were all being lied to. The same thing happened when I first heard about Darwin’s dumb theory. These things just didn’t make any sense. Yup, I was really smart for my age!!

For me it doesn’t really matter if we came from some alien genetic experiment. Everything and everyone, alien or human had to be created somewhere by some force greater than us all. It’s a mystery we will never have an answer to until we meet our Maker. I just wish the eggheads would quit all the lying and open the lid of the box they are in and look around.

Obamacare – Pure Evil
by The Bunker

Gainesville family fights for children’s lives after insurance cancellation

I thought I would be ready for these stories.  I was wrong. For the love of God what has happened to this country? What has happened to the men in this country? Is there any empathy left in the hearts of the nations people? What? Is everything just entertainment for the masses? “Oh, look honey, a sick little kid on TV.”  “Oh, that’s so sad.  Hey what time is Dancing With The Stars on?” Is this what it has come down to? Or maybe it’s, “Damn man, I hope that never happens to my kid!”

Let me make this point CRYSTAL CLEAR, so listen up. The psychopaths who put this health care law together and then dropped it on the country knew this would happen. The democrats, if they are anything, are political geniuses. They use war games in their strategies to cover every conceivable detail. They have backup strategies to their back up strategies. The president, Harry Reid, Pelosi, Valerie Jarrett and all the other commies knew darn well that when citizens lost their health care the logical outcome would be that people would die, including children. These people are so filled with evil they didn’t care and don’t care.

Let me ask you this; if you knew that something you were about to do would harm a child would you go ahead and do it? Of course not! No rational thinking human being with any sense of compassion would even think of causing harm to a child. But, that’s not the case for the commie cabal running our country is it? No, because for them its about getting what they want, at any cost. The passage of this sick health care law is the pinnacle legislation for the democrats. It provides total control over the masses.  Complete and absolute power to begin social engineering. That is what communism is all about, social engineering, manipulation, creating a perfect society. If people have to die, so be it. Sick children with cancer would never be productive to the collective.

Read Karl Marx for God’s sake, its all about creating a productive and prosperous working class. The one minor point that is always left out for the masses is that if people are old, sick, feeble minded, disabled etc. their happy days as a productive member are short lived. There’s a pit in an open field waiting for those folks. This is who is running our country people! Harry Reid just consolidated another big chunk of power for the cabal. The lies, the manipulations, executive orders, corruption, hidden bureaucratic rules and regulations, spying, intimidation of the opposition and of the press, it’s a freaking police state and it is killing people!!!

I don’t want to hear any more bull crap from the big talkers on Fox News, or so called opposition party because they are all phonies. If the bastards in the republican party can’t take this child’s story to the floor of both houses of Congress and scream till they are blue in the face at Pelosi and Reid then they are nothing but cowards. Look, this sick child and others like them aren’t going to wait around for the next election. They don’t care how many votes politicians can muster or Obama’s poll numbers. They’ll all be dead before then!!

For the love of God, hasn’t this country killed enough children already?

Judgement day! Judgement day is coming! We are going to pay for the sin of doing nothing.

It will not be the kind and it sure as hell won’t be entertaining.

The Real Damage of Obamacare
by The Bunker

I just spent four days on the road listening to all the big talkers on the radio blasting the president and his “Failed” healthcare plan. I have one simple question, “What failure?” It’s not the website, or the navigators or even the fact that people haven’t signed up. No, the damage has been done. Even if the presidents poll numbers drop to zero the truth is that there are now over 10,000 pages of new rules and regulations written into the Federal Register. There are also thousands more waiting to be implemented.

You can be sure that these rules, regulations, taxes, fees and laws cross into every federal bureaucracy. From the IRS to The Department of Homeland Security and down into the Department of the Interior. The Affordable Care Act is now like a virus infecting the entire government. This virus has already spread into every level of state and local government and will continue to grow.

Bureaucrats in thousands of government buildings are sending out dictates to private insurance companies, individuals and business’s demanding that they comply or face penalties. The new health care law has provided them with the tools to implode 1/6 of this nation’s economy.

When a virus of this magnitude is unleashed there are no, “Fixes” or alternate plans.

In the debate leading up to the passage of Obamacare Mark Steyn made a brilliant observation. He said politicians love big government medicine and health care laws because they are the one set of regulations that touches every single citizen. Because centralized control never works it always requires fixing. This gives the politicians the perfect platform to be seen as hero’s, always, working for the little guy to protect them from the big government bullies. Government health care crosses all demographic boundaries. The political saviors can use their “fixes” to appeal to everyone because everyone is affected by the mess the politicians created. Taking over a huge segment of the economy also lets the political class shakedown anyone and anything that is forced to comply.

Politicians who run to the microphone to proclaim their ideas on how to fix the mess that has been dropped on the nations head are phonies. Anyone who has an alternate or better plan should be booed from the stage.

What the people of America need is an anti-Obamcare virus removal program. This law has to be repealed and wiped clean from the nations hard drive. Any other plan leaves tens of thousands of damaging rules and regulations that will infect our lives forever.

Revolution 101 (Guest Commentary)

Revolution 101
by The Bunker

The revolution is being televised. Can you see it? Are you a witness to the full assault of our God given Natural Rights? Did you hear the explosion as one sixth of our economy and the private health care system vanished into a cloud of dust? Are you able to comprehend the anguish of the million’s citizens who just lost their health care coverage? A large percentage of these Americans need ongoing treatment for chronic illnesses. There will be casualties.

To win a battle the warrior has to, “Know the enemy.” Many people are just now catching a glimpse of the adversary. It is a Terminator. The socialist/collectivist/ Marxist machine is an emotionless killing ideology. It never stops, it doesn’t rest, it can’t be bargained with and it can’t be reasoned with. It doesn’t feel pity or remorse or fear. It is programmed to win, at all cost. The lines of code that course through its brain repeat: “For the greater good of the greater number. The end justifies the means.” Strip away the human façade, peel back the smiling face and stare into the cold red eyes.

Even the big name right wing talkers have to admit the truth. On Monday Rush Limbaugh said he believes the destruction of our nation is being done on purpose. Think about that, because it’s true. One third of our government, the executive branch is now controlled by a socialist cabal hell bent on the destruction of our way of life. It is a coup. Can you see it?

Big News! Action Alert! The bubble heads of propaganda proclaim, “Obama’s approval rating at an all time low!!!!” Do you really think that the 4 million Ukrainians who starved to death in 1932-1933 cared about Stalin’s approval numbers? Do you think Stalin cared? Do you really think that the increasing number of citizens who are losing their health care coverage care about Obama’s great smile? It is the results that matter. Dictators don’t care if you like them.

Everything seems normal. The players study their game plans and run to committee meetings and the airwaves in the never ending game of political football. The fans on both sides slip on the jerseys of their favorite players and gather in the arenas of radio and television. The fans hoot and holler, “My side is winning!  No wait, he fumbled the ball again.” In the background the real winners are the big money lobbyists, the global mega corporations, the too big to fail banks and the socialist/collectivist controllers who profit and really understand how to win the war.

Their machine has a fatal flaw. It stumbles every time the truth is laid in its path. Whenever the citizen stands up and shines the light of discovery in its face the machine can’t answer. It mumbles ridiculous lies and exposes itself to even more citizen warriors.

There are very few warriors in the halls of congress. They have pushed back with limitations. Our job is to support them by blogging and spreading the message of Liberty, Freedom, and God given Natural Rights.

My hope is that someday one of them will gather the power of the people and tell the complete truth. Our nation is under assault by a socialist/collectivist/Marxist ideological machine.

We need to give them that power.

Nothing by Chance
by The Bunker

“In politics nothing happens ‘by chance.’ If something happens, then you can bet that it was planned that way.”
-Franklin Delano Roosevelt

The last two weeks have been very entertaining. I could almost hear the baritone rumblings of the great movie voice over artist, Don Lafontaine, “In a world where lies and corruption rule the masses, the politician plays his evil games.” Don’t let anyone tell you drive in thrillers have died. They’re playing around the clock on Fox News.

Old line party hacks like John Boehner and Harry Reid move through the halls of power with a wink and a nod. Their press releases present a fictional scene of two great monolithic rams butting heads in a never ending battle to secure their party’s dogma. In reality they exchange secret emails and meet with the president under false pretenses to secure special compensation for themselves and their staff. Voila! No Obamacare for congress!

This last crisis based thriller was a bit of a letdown. It started out slow but the buildup to the climatic scenes of Veterans tossing Barry-Cades at the Spite House was worth the price of admission. The ending kind of fell flat. Only one monster was temporarily slain; The Tea Party.

The Romans suffered during the dying days of the empire. In order to make sense of stallions in the senate they devised a simple question; Cui Bono? Who benefits. Who benefits from these never ending theatrical dramas?

I think the statement by the Senator from New York, Charles Schumer says it all,

“First, [the Tea Party and Cruz] have so alienated their colleagues… But second, the tactics of the Tea Party — ‘I’m gonna hurt a lot of innocent people unless I get my way.’ This is the first time it was in the spotlight, that the American people saw it. They didn’t like it. The Republican Party has learned a lesson here and I think you’re going to see a more mainstream conservative Republican Party.”

The Tea Party is like Godzilla ready to collapse the barricades of power in Washington D. C. The movie trailer might read like this, “Up from the depths of the heartland, the Tea Party, King of the Constitution, stalks the halls of power, crushing all before it. Jet planes cannot destroy it; bombs will not weaken it, all spineless purveyors of power tremble before it; republicans and democrats decry! Is this the end of our reign? We must have a plan!”

And plan they did. The enemy of my enemy is my friend. Entrenched party leaders from both sides of the aisle despise the Tea Party. When the common citizen takes to the streets quoting the Constitution and then builds a political Godzilla you can bet the botoxed, suntanned, drug abusers in power get nervous.

Most politicians are lawyers. They know how to build a case. For the last two weeks they have been laying accusations against the Tea Party. It doesn’t matter if the evidence was fabricated or just outright lies. In the eyes of the sheeple, it worked. It also gave great cover to the disastrous roll out of Obamacare. Oh, I believe Senator’s Ted Cruz and Mike Lee are sincere but also a bit naive. The party privileged; self proclaimed masters of their own delusions know how to get what they want and they want it all for themselves.

Too far fetched you say? A conspiracy so complicated it would be impossible to pull off. Think again. Politics is like war gaming. Each move is planned in advance with some knowledge of how your opponent will react. Once the game is set in motion the conspirator’s just need to adjust their tactics to counteract their opponent’s moves. If the other side doesn’t even know it’s in the game it’s easy to keep them confused, set up false attacks, force them into a corner and then humiliate them in defeat. Historical battles have been won by a handful of generals. Everyone else is just cannon fodder.

Cui Bono? Well the final act says it all. Everything is once again as it should be. The good ole boys of the Senate and House got their way. Our Dear Leader gets to gloat. The great compromiser, Senator Mitch McConnell, even gets to bring a present to the peasants in Kentucky. The RINOs saved the world from economic disaster and the power of the purse shifted to the democrats. For the psychopathic politically connected, hell bent on total control to secure a Marxist nirvana where only they will be in charge; it’s a great day in the neighborhood.

BUT, it’s a funny thing about Godzilla. The monster never really dies. He just keeps rising up from his radioactive refuge even more pissed off!
