Just Relax In Your ‘Fundamentally Transformed’ Country, Americans

Pres’ent Obama has simply carried through:
In the pre-transformed America, it was understood that the Commies had infiltrated Hollywood and academia. No one really expected subversion of the IRS:

To summarize: The IRS (famed for nitpicking and prosecuting the tax law), chose to authorize hundreds of billions of illegal subsidies without having performed a smidgen of legal due diligence, and did so at the direction of political taskmasters. The agency’s actions provided aid and comfort to elected Democrats, even as it disenfranchised millions of Americans who voted in their states to reject state-run exchanges. And Treasury knows how ugly this looks, which is why it initially stonewalled Congress in its investigation—at first refusing to give documents to investigators, and redacting large portions of the information.

These dots on the financial rigging side connect just as we hear that, on the drafting side, the shenanigans were just as wretched:

The New Republic’s Jonathan Cohn reached out to Jonathan Gruber to get his reaction to the emergence of the Nobilis video in which the architect of ObamaCare explains that the restriction of subsidies to states with their own exchanges was a rational attempt to coerce states into creating those exchanges, rather than shifting the burden back to the federal government. Gruber calls that “a speak-o — you know, like a typo”

In defense of the Democrats, we have tolerated and permitted our politics to reach this sordid state. The sovereignty of We the People is being migrated over to the executive branch in two ways:

  • initially burying decision making in a series of multi-ream legislative reamings, of which the Affordable Care Act is merely the most infamous example, and,
  • subsequently rewriting those words as required either through regulation or, in the unusual case of the ACA, at the SCOTUS.

It’s a cliché to say that the impending election is the most important of our lifetimes. It’s no longer about avoiding the disaster; it’s about mitigating the effects and minimizing the recover time.

    I feel so “different” and so “transformed” since Obama assumed power.

    It resonates because GoT takes http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/War_of_the_Roses as a departure point.

    Two events have connected to make this Regime as lawless as it is:

    1) Unions dominate the Government bureaucracies
    2) Due to the emphasis on EEOC in Government, minorities and women are represented in Government to a higher extent than demographics or merit would normally occur.
    3) Their thus more Democrats in the Government than conservative or Republican.
    4) Bureaucrats more often have a reaction to orders of compliance than to question them.

    We’ve seen from testimony and investigation that many of those who have breached governmental rules of privacy and the release of information have been women and or minorities since Obama’s regime took power. Their actions have usually come at the request or to the aid of Democrats.

    There has been a slow motion coup de etat within the Government and the GOP has surrendered to it.

    We are faced with Governmental bureaucracies that have aligned themselves for what ever reason with the progressive liberal wing of politics and so have become a force of influence, coercion and terror against the people of the US.

    And most Democrats are quite happy and willing to let it abide

    That’s the best case scenario – which is not likely because the infiltration of the national government is too wide-spread and too deep to overcome.

    Add to that the fact that some people who believe this Election is about mitigating and minimizing involves voting for Quislings like Thad Cochran, and it makes it even less likely the best scenario will come about.

    of our lifetimes. It’s no longer about avoiding the disaster; it’s about
    mitigating the effects and minimizing the recover time.

    The curious thing about the Obama cult is that the President is most thoroughly rejected by the elderly – dependents of Social Security and Medicare the bourgeois component of which were college students prior to 1973 (which is to say a large bloc of them were there during all those disturbances). The large bloc of people born during the years running from 1950 to 1984 – in spite of divergent coming-of-age experiences and positions in the life cycle – have a similar reaction to him and hug the national means. The young most fancy him in spite of the wretched character of the labor market these last five years, and in spite of the bollixing of the market for household medical insurance. The President retains rock-solid support among blacks even though he is in the business of favoring the interests of Mexican and Central American immigrants over blacks’ interests.

    Actual economic interests appear to be a weak vector in influencing opinion. The Republicans may have untapped opportunities with that 47%.
