Folks are beginning to figure this out

"Mr. Obama has a more important reason for doing her in... he needs a successor he can control."

If Mr. Obama does not want an investigation to go forward, it does not go forward. Witness the scandals involving the Internal Revenue Service, Benghazi, Veterans Administration and Operation Fast and Furious gunrunning. In each case, Mr. Obama claimed he learned about the scandal “from the news.” (That’s interesting coming from a guy who claims he only rarely watches or reads said “news.”) 
He then expressed his “outrage” and vowed to “get to the bottom” of each scandal. (Of course, it’s tough to “get to the bottom” of something when you are the bottom of it.)
In those cases, he protesteth too much. His faux outrage was a “tell” that he had no intention of investigating. In Mrs. Clinton’s case, he’s been quiet. Too quiet. That’s a “tell” that he wants this investigation pursued, likely to the point of charging her. 
He has others talking, however. Each week, there are damaging new leaks about her personal email and server: that despite her denials, she did, in fact, have top-secret and other highly classified materials on the server, that the FBI is conducting a criminal probe and the bureau is “optimistic” it can retrieve the wiped data, that she may have had a second server, that her top aides — Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills and Jake Sullivan — are now also in investigators’ sights. 
Mr. Obama is a clever dark knight: he’s not just going after the queen. He’s going after her court, too.
It's obvious--Obama is a ruthless leftist Democrat (I repeat myself), and he uses the Justice Department, the FBI and the IRS as tools of his politics. Those folks don't take a sh*t without asking permission from the White House.

Obama is in the process of destroying the Democrat heir to his presidency. The reason is obvious--he wants to control the Democrat party, and he needs the Clintons destroyed. Destroyed, not retired.

If the Clintons try to "retire", they'll end up with (figurative) axes through their heads, like Trotsky.

Obama is taking the Clinton machine apart piece by slimy piece, and he's going to annihilate it. We're talking prison for the capos.

This is the real Left, and Obama is real Left. Everywhere the Left has taken power, this is what they do.

They destroy their own first, to consolidate power within their own Party.

My only question is this: why would Hillary be so stupid? Why would she make it so easy for Obama to destroy her? Perhaps her greed blinded her, or perhaps she has something on Obama that she can use in retaliation.

But she's toast. She's not going the be the nominee, probably because she'll be indicted. Will I be happy when Hillary is in an orange jumpsuit. Of course! Who wouldn't be? She's a lowlife gangster who should've been in jail decades ago, along with the sex offender she's "married" to.

But you must understand what's really happening. The takeover of the Democrat party by the hard left--the real Left-- is a sea change in American history. The Left's new voters will be the fools and knaves who voted enthusiastically for Obama, and the ten's of millions of illegals Obama has imported. It may not be a governing coalition yet, or even soon, but we will soon have one of the two major parties in our country be a hard Left party.

American was a good thing, while it lasted.

The purge of Hillary

The most interesting thing in the nation today has nothing to do with the Republican debates. What's happening now will change our nation's history, and the commentariat seems to understand none of it.

There is a civil war in the Democrat party. The war  is for control of the party. It is hot and (legally) lethal. It will alter our politics and governance.

Obama is taking over the Democrat party. That has been the goal of the Left since 1968, and it is near accomplishment.

Leftists always direct their hate and destructive force at each other, more so even than at their enemies on the right. Stalin destroyed Trotsky. The Purge Trials targeted mostly fellow communists. The goal of the Left is power, and only power, and the Left always begins with local power. For Leftists in the Democrat party, local power means taking over the Democrat party.

How to accomplish it? First, drive out the moderate Democrats. Because moderates generally cannot be convinced to leave voluntarily, the Left uses elections to drive them out. That's why Obama seemed strangely unconcerned that the Democrats lost heavily in  the 2010 and 2014 midterms--virtually all of the Democrats who lost seats were moderate Democrats. The Democrat party that remains is much more Leftist, which is the goal.

The problem that remains for Stalin Obama is that the Clintons and their faction remain in the party, and Hillary is favored to gain the presidency. That would of course castrate Obama and destroy the Left's plan.

How to purge the Clintons? The Clintons are masters at politics and at corruption and dirty tricks, and they certainly won't go voluntarily.

What's remarkable now is that Obama's Justice Department is seriously investigating Hillary. Think about it for a moment. A Democrat president known for his manipulation of the legal system to destroy political opponents (think IRS scandal) is directing a massive felony investigation at his party's (presumptive) next president. Would Carter have directed the FBI to go after Mondale? Would Reagan have directed the FBI to go after George H.W. Bush? Would Clinton have directed the FBI to go after Al Gore?

It is astonishing that Obama is investigating Clinton for the email crimes (and of course they are crimes). The only explanation is this: Obama is destroying Clinton and her machine.

And she will be destroyed, along with her husband and the coterie of gangsters they have collected. Obama wants them gone--many, I suspect, will go to prison.

I doubt Hillary will survive to run in 2016. She will probably be indicted, and probably convicted and jailed. Look for Bill and the capos of the Clinton Foundation syndicate to join her.

Even if she does survive to run in the election, Obama will make sure she loses, and is humiliated.

Obama's goal is the complete control of the Democrat party. He's close, and that is the most remarkable story of his presidency, and it's a story that's not being reported.

After seizing control of the Democrat party, the Left has one problem left: the Democrats will be a smaller party, devastated at the polls. What's the use of taking over the party, if it loses in perpetuity?

The solution: illegal immigration. Obama and the Left are purging the Democrat party of non-Leftists, and filling the electoral hole with tens of millions of illegal immigrants. It may take a generation or two, but the Left will prevail.

It's fascinating to watch.

"Wherever there is Animal Worship there is Human Sacrifice."


This is remarkable: the connection between the almost pagan obsession with Cecil the lion, and the slaughter of babies by Planned Parenthood.

As usual, Chesterton understands our time:
There is a healthy and an unhealthy love of animals: and the nearest definition of the difference is that the unhealthy love of animals is serious. I am quite prepared to love a rhinoceros, with reasonable precautions: he is, doubtless, a delightful father to the young rhinoceroses. But I will not promise not to laugh at a rhinoceros. . . . I will not worship an animal. That is, I will not take an animal quite seriously: and I know why. 
Wherever there is Animal Worship there is Human Sacrifice. That is, both symbolically and literally, a real truth of historical experience.

Planned Parenthood's abortions would disgust even Margaret Sanger


In the midst of the Planned Parenthood scandal, it's worth noting that Margaret Sanger was emphatically opposed to abortion.

Sanger's disgust with abortion is well documented:
She turned women seeking abortions away from her clinics: “I do not approve of abortion.” She called it “sordid,” “abhorrent,” “terrible,” “barbaric,” a “horror.” She called abortionists “blood-sucking men with MD after their names who perform operations for the price of so-and-so.” She called the results of abortion “an outrageous slaughter,” “infanticide,” “foeticide,” and “the killing of babies.” And Margaret Sanger, who knew a thing or two about contraception, said that birth control “has nothing to do with abortion, it has nothing to do with interfering with or disturbing life after conception has taken place.” Birth control stands alone: “It is the first, last, and final step we all are to take to have real human emancipation.”

Sanger was a racist, a eugenicist and a birth control fanatic, but she did not support abortion. It seems, actually, that abortion repulsed her. Planned Parenthood didn't become the world's largest abortion mill until after her death.

This demonstrates the radical depravity of Planned Parenthood and their modern collaborators. Planned Parenthood abortions would disgust even Margaret Sanger.

When you've lost Margaret Sanger...

Milton Friedman on what's most important in politics

A very good insight:
“I do not believe that the solution to our problem is simply to elect the right people. The important thing is to establish a political climate of opinion which will make it politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right thing. Unless it is politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right thing, the right people will not do the right thing either, or if they try, they will shortly be out of office.”
It's not enough to just elect reasonably good people. Example: the current Republican House and Senate.

Conservatives need to change the culture, so that even bad politicians wouldn't betray conservative principles. We need militancy and we need to take no prisoners. This is a culture war, in every sense of "war" except for the shooting. We need to fight ruthlessly (within the bounds of law and ethics).

Conservative Republicans demanding defunding of Planned Parenthood don't really mean a lot. We expect them to do that, and frankly they've been rather slow about it.

We'll know we're winning when Nancy Pelosi demands defunding of Planned Parenthood, because Planned Parenthood has been shown to be so evil that even Pelosi's constituents won't abide it.

I would not have thought that possible before the Center for Medical Progress videos. I'm not quite so pessimistic any more.




Stephen Hawking: 'Philosophy is dead'.



Stephen Hawking tells Google ‘philosophy is dead’

Hawking's assertion is philosophy, so he refutes himself. 

Hawking's philosophical musings are notoriously sophomoric, so it's not clear exactly what he means. Even to refute himself, he'd have to muster sufficient philosophical rigor to make a proposition that can be true or false. Such rigor seems to be considerably beyond Hawking's powers. 

Perhaps what Hawking means is that metaphysics has not kept up with science, which is just a conceptual jumble. 

The metaphysics of Aristotle and Aquinas is far and away the most successful framework on which to understand modern science, especially quantum mechanics. Heisenberg knew this. Aristotle 2300 years ago described the basics of collapse of the quantum waveform (reduction of potency to act) and Aristotelian final causation remains the only coherent way to understand evolutionary change-- the most dramatic example of final causation in biology is convergent evolution.

The Big Bang was foreseen by philosophers in the middle ages (who argued that the universe could not be infinite in the past) and of course by theologians.

In quantum mechanics, cosmology and evolutionary biology, scientists are just catching up to over two thousand years of philosophical insight. 

Scientists understand the philosophical framework of their technical labor. Technicians crunch numbers and tinker with instruments, with little insight into the philosophical basis for their calculations. Atheist technicians like Hawking are pitiful imitations of the great scientists of the scientific enlightenment and the great pioneers in modern physics--vanishingly few of whom were atheists. Real scientists do more than play with equations and tinker with instruments. 

Real scientists have a meaningful understanding of natural philosophy as it relates to their work. No atheist scientist in the public spotlight today would pass a freshman philosophy exam. Think Dawkins. Think Krauss. Think Myers. Think Moran. Think Coyne. 

Our 21st century scientific priesthood--mostly atheists and materialists to the extent that their metaphysics is coherent enough to be described-- is mostly half-educated technicians with publicists. 

Atheists like Hawking believe that the universe ultimately makes no sense and has no purpose. Why should we ascribe purpose or sense to their own half-educated musings?

Newsflash: Gun-Free Zones advertise defenselessness


Gun-free zones advertise the defenseless


Essentially all spree-shootings in the United States are committed in gun-free zones. 

Gun-free zones are invitations to spree shooters. That's why spree-shooters shoot up schools and churches rather than police stations and gun shows. 

Gun-grabbers are the problem, not the solution.
