Will Win, Thanks to the Clueless Banana Republicans
by Scott Lazarowitz: Authoritarianism
Michael Rozeff’s post on the Lew Rockwell blog is correct: "Obama
Will Win." Rozeff asserts that "Ron Paul was the strongest
candidate for the nomination, but the Republicans chose to die instead…"
The so-called conservatives in America who preferred a socialist
like Romney will nominate him and sweep Obama to a second term.
The Romney supporters will once again put themselves in denial,
call Romney a "conservative," a "capitalist"
(which he certainly
and pretend that he would actually entertain the thought of cutting
budgets, cutting deficits, dealing with the National Debt, dealing
with the current failed system of monetary central planning, and
America is also a sick country, and a banana republic with a "Chief
Justice" who bent over backwards to rubber stamp Obama’s SovietCare.
America is sick, with millions of people dependent
on government, and millions unnecessarily employed by governments
– federal, state and local. And America is a police
A few nights ago while filling in for Michael Savage, Jed Babbin
was defending Romney’s choice for VP, Paul Ryan, and defending Ryan’s
budget that does nothing to heal America’s economic problems. The
fill-in host was also defending Ryan’s plan to "replace"
ObamaCare with something that the Republicans have in mind, which
is nothing resembling free markets, and not having any
better sense of medical freedom and privacy. Just the same kind
of socialism and medical fascism, but a little less socialism to
fool the voters so that these socialist Republicans can get themselves
reelected, for that is the bottom line. (See Jacob
Hornberger on Republicans’ unwillingness to repeal ALL medical
socialism, and see Laurence Vance on the socialist, unconstitutional
Paul Ryan budget here,
and see Vance here
– and here
and here on
Republican hypocrisy on ObamaCare, and see Robert Wenzel’s take
on Paul Ryan’s "slick
healthcare plan," and Wenzel’s list
of articles on Paul Ryan.)
And then the next night, Michael Savage returned to his show, and
brought up the millions of rounds of ammunition that the Department
of Homeland Security and other federal agencies have purchased,
like they know something is going to happen and they’re preparing
for it. But Savage said that many people now fear Obama, and fear
that Obama is going to start something of a violent nature against
the American people. Yes, Obama is something to fear, given all
his recent executive orders, his use of a new Soviet-like medical
takeover to have more control over the people’s private lives.
So listen everyone, we had better get to the polls this November
and vote for Romney to prevent the tyranny – NOT!
Because these "conservatives" like Savage don’t seem
to want to believe that Romney will do the same thing,
especially now that the police state apparatus is in place for him
to do it. The same police state apparatus that George W. Bush and
Dick Cheney put in place for Obama to do what he’s doing now.
The people in denial who nominated an outright socialist and fascist
will have to face the fact the Willard Romney is as much a political
opportunist and a self-centered narcissist as Obama, just another
politician who wants power and doesn’t want the people to have freedom!
So of course Romney approves of NDAA
and opposes due process, approves of assassinating Americans without
showing evidence against the accused, supports torturing of innocents,
supports the idiotic drug war, and starting wars of aggression against
foreigners who were of no threat to us. Romney is just another part
of Amerika’s banana republic sickness
So in addition to these clowns, we have the Homeland Security secretary
whose department is alleged
to discriminate against male employees and use sexual humiliation
against them as well. I am not surprised, given
Janet Napolitano’s sick TSA that exists solely for security theater
and for no other reason, as its employees humiliate and intimidate
travelers as well as sporting event attendees and others. And the
buffoons of the "Supreme" Court also approved of police
strip searching of people arrested for parking tickets and walking
dogs without a leash.
Only in a sick, banana republic is all this happening. As Naomi
Wolf observed, governments
use sexual humiliation as a political tool to control the masses.
You see, the difference between Ron Paul and his son, Sen. Rand
Paul, is that Ron Paul wants to get rid of the totally unnecessary
and criminal TSA altogether, but Rand Paul wants to merely rearrange
the deck chairs. I am not surprised that Rand – who
wants to deport or put in prison certain people (such as Muslims?)
merely for attending certain political speeches – and who
is apparently clueless about why we have had terrorism in the first
place, would endorse Willard Romney.
So, the TSA criminality at the airports and elsewhere is mere security
theater, and isn’t preventing terrorism. Neither are the wars that
George W. Bush started and Obama continues to wage. The real way
to end the threat of terrorism in America is to end U.S. government
provocations overseas that it has been committing for 6 or 7 decades
You see, if you go over and trespass on foreign lands and murder
foreigners as the U.S. government has been doing since World War
II, and since 1990 in the Middle East especially, that provokes
the foreigners and makes them want to come over here and
do the same to us. And mind you, it is not we the American people
who have been initiating such provocations overseas, it is our
government that has been doing it. But we the American people
are made more vulnerable over here by our stupid government bureaucrats
and politicians’ aggressions overseas!
Unfortunately, the history ignoramuses, the TV-hypnotized public,
don’t see it that way. They believe that everything began on 9/11,
and won’t believe you if you inform them of what our government
imbeciles have been doing since well before 9/11. (See
here for further
You have to shake off all the government-media-complex’s propaganda
to really understand what our government has done to foreigners
as a means of making us less secure and more vulnerable.
It would have helped had mainstream media reporters, TV show hosts
and pundits not ignored
and smeared Ron Paul during the presidential campaign, though.
He could’ve gotten the truth out more effectively. CNN’s Candy
Crowley was just one example out of many.
But as I referred to in my article, Authoritarianism
or Self-Determination (that didn’t seem to get very much attention,
oh well), the mainstream media won’t tell you what the government
is doing. Anything that glorifies the State and diminishes liberty
is what matters. So the Michael Savage "conservative"
crowd have been propagandized to support the Bush-Obama "war
on terror," and growing police state.
But the Left is so taken in by feel-good socialist class warfare
and envy politics, they would never believe what a fascist tyrant
Obama really is. Glenn Greenwald is one of the few writers who exposes
the Obama warmongering and the corrupt news media who serve his
interests for more power. Many on the Left wouldn’t believe Obama’s
war on government whistleblowers (and see here).
about how the Obama Administration’s war on whistleblowers is
reaching more than just the Department of Defense and military,
and the extent to which bureaucrats are covering up their tracks
to avoid Freedom of Information Act requests and basic government
transparency guidelines. Greenwald notes:
(Evading legal transparency requirements is, like persecuting
whistleblowers, a standard practice for the Most Transparent Administration
Ever™: recently disclosed emails
revealed that Jim Messina – then-former White House deputy
chief of staff, now the Obama campaign manager – deliberately
met with lobbyists for the pharmaceutical industry at coffee houses
rather than the White House when drafting the health care bill,
and used his personal rather than official email account to communicate
with them, in order to evade record-preservation and transparency
If you think the Obama Administration is corrupt, then given how
dishonest, phony, flip-flopping and unprincipled Romney is, and
given how then-Gov.
Romney’s staff replaced Massachusetts State House computers
and hard drives as a means of
covering up maintaining
bureaucratic secrecy, do you honestly believe that a President Romney
will be any less corrupt and sleazy than the current White House
And some of these bureaucrats don’t even try to hide their incompetence
and delusional behaviors now. On the face of it, Fast and Furious
is a socialist, central-planning program to do something stupid
(deliver guns to Mexican gangsters) with the intention of effecting
some fantasized goal that, if the central planners actually thought
about their stupid plan they would decide against it.
Actually thinking about their own proposals and policies
is something foreign to government bureaucrats. The planners would
have decided against Fast and Furious based on all the
possible (and likely) unintended consequences (e.g. guns getting
in the "wrong hands" and ending up being used to murder
The real answers to problems that the central planners are allegedly
attempting to deal with are: ending the socialist
war on drugs, ending the socialist
war on immigration, and ending the socialist
war on guns.
But we can safely speculate that AG Eric Holster’s real intention
with Fast and Furious is to convince enough people to accept
the government’s disarming of the people so that the civilian population
can’t defend themselves against Leviathan’s tyranny. Even the clueless
Republicans and conservatives, including
Michael Savage, want to help the government disarm the civilian
population. Savage and others cave to the emotionalism associated
with a shooting in a theater or at a religious house of worship,
but do not understand the real issue – and this relates to why the
Obama Administration is loading up on ammunition coinciding with
their attempts to disarm the American people. Savage and others
don’t understand that, if the government, police and military possess
AK-47s and other similar types of weaponry, then the civilians have
a right to be equally armed.
Why? Jacob Hornberger pointed
out why the American Revolutionaries opposed the government
even having a standing army in the first place. And as Laurence
the centralized military is used as the President’s personal army,
and doesn’t serve the interests of the people of the country. The
federal government’s military, and other agencies that are now allowed
to have armed power and authority, will be used by the President,
Obama/Romney etc., against the people. And yes, it "can
happen here." (And it already
But the gullible TV-hypnotized American public will vote for Obama
or Romney, and probably Obama will win.
The U.S. is continuing on life support, as Americans live under
an inherently flawed system of central planning that is destined
to collapse under its own weight. If the clueless conservatives
really wanted to reverse the growth of Leviathan and the threat
of federal government tyranny, they had their chance in 2012 with
Ron Paul. (Perhaps there’s another
