AS I WAS SAYING BEFORE BEING INTERRUPTED BY A HACKER IN NIGERIA ...

Here is part of the column I was intending to post on November 8, post-election.  Upon reviewing it today, I decided it was just as applicable now as then, with the following addition:
     A society begins to crumble as realization spreads that its core institutions are not to be trusted. We are rapidly reaching that point.
     Facts:
     Barack Obama is a liar. Demonstrably and repeatedly.
     David Petraeus, the very definition of a political general, is a liar as demonstrated by his telling a congressional committee that he supported Obama's fairytale that the Benghazi, Libya, murders were the result of a spontaneous reaction to a video. He's also, according to many in a position to know, a posturing phony whose dictum that American troops should put themselves at greater risk by getting closer to Muslims to "appreciate their culture" got many of them killed. Such nonsense doubtless stems from his much-lauded collection of degrees from Ivy League universities.
     Hillary Clinton is a liar -- not for the first or only time -- for propagating the same Benghazi myth when she damned well knew better.
     Susan Rice is a liar -- and she's Obama's choice to succeed Hillary at the State Department! Now he wants her to be seen as a poor little black girl being victimized by those mean old white men.
     Eric Holder, Attorney General and gun-smuggler, has a record of deceit that requires no elaboration.
     Space prohibits listing the entire cast of under-liars like that pathetic spokesparrot Jay Carney. 
     Petraeus' successor as military commander in the world's toilet, the Muslim middle-east, is General John Allen, another political general with a zipper problem who likely babbled national security secrets to one or more bimbos with whom he and Petraeus apparently had some sort of time-share arrangement.
     The Big Media, as we've long known, are infested with liars. So are some of the smaller-fry in that world, starting with CNN and MSNBC. And while an attempt to "broaden the base" is understandable, Fox News sacrifices credibility with serious people when it gives exposure to a buffoon like Geraldo Rivera whose talents are better suited to such ventures as his hyped opening of Al Capone's vault several years ago, yielding ... a few old empty bottles.

I hope to resume the daily schedule shortly. First, however, I must deal with a minor but annoying health situation.

Now, to recapitulate the lost column ...

Bill Clinton, perjurer, contributed the laugh-line of the entire campaign: "Who wants a president who will knowingly, repeatedly, tell you something you know isn't true?"

The answer: upward of 51% of American voters.

Anybody surprised that New Black Panthers, menacing white voters with clubs, were back at Philadelphia voting places? After all, this is the street gang that did the same thing in the previous national election and Obama's racist Attorney General, Comrade Eric Holder, refused to prosecute them for it.
     News reports indicate that in hundreds of voting districts, ZERO votes were cast for Romney. Was the election crooked? Of course.

...also ...
Still waiting to hear from all those Obama fans in oh-so-blue New York and New Jersey about how well FEMA solved their post-hurricane problems.

Regardless of the election outcome, one thing Republicans should remember from the campaign: Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey is never to be trusted. He's a double-agent.
     Following Obama around Joisey like an adoring puppy-dog just before the election was demeaning and  disgusting.

Thomas Sowell reminds us of what's been lost as a result of Obama ...
     "You do not have a self-governing people when "czars" are created by Executive Orders, so that individuals wielding vast powers equal to, or greater than, the powers of Cabinet members do not have to be vetted and confirmed by the people's elected representatives in the Senate, as Cabinet members must be.
     "You do not have a self-governing people when decisions to take military action are referred to the United Nations and the Arab League, but not to the Congress of the United States, elected by the American people, whose blood and treasure are squandered.
     "You do not have a self-governing people when ... unelected officials of the Federal Reserve System can create its own money out of thin air, instead of being financed by appropriations voted by elected members of Congress who have to justify their priorities and trade-offs to the taxpaying public.
     "You do not have a self-governing people when laws passed by the Congress, signed by previous Presidents, and approved by the federal courts, can have the current President waive whatever sections he does not like, and refuse to enforce those sections, despite his oath to see that the laws are faithfully executed." (Immigration laws being an example. -- Ed.)

Reliable reports continue to surface; reports that Iranian-born Valerie Jarrett, Obama's closest advisor, has been engaged in secret talks with Iran that may lead to a post-election deal that will allow Iran to continue pursuit of nuclear weapons with Obama's approval, provided certain "promises" are made.
     I leave it to you to decide just how much Iranian promises are worth.

Supreme Court Justice Scalia on the difficulty of restoring constitutional law after four years of Obama ...    
     “You know, people used to say when they don’t like something that’s going on, they say: 'There ought to be a law,' said Scalia. 
     “'People don’t say that anymore. They say, ‘It’s unconstitutional,’ if they really feel passionately about it. And it is even more seductive to judges. It’s a wonderful thing to have a constitutional case and you’re always happy with the result because it means exactly what you think it ought to mean.” -- CNS News

Makes you proud to be a taxpayer ...
     Secretary of State Hillary Clinton joyfully announces that $900,000 of U.S. taxpayer money is being given to help women start businesses ... in Peru and El Salvador.

Reader Sheila offers a quote from history that remains viable ...
     "There are two ways to conquer & enslave a nation. One is by the sword. The other is by debt." -- John Adams 1826

A lesson Barack Obama and his sheeple obviously never learned.

 ...but at least he's nice to the help ...
     "A high-level government official from the Dominican Republic told The Daily Caller that New Jersey Democratic Sen. Robert Menendez and wealthy campaign donor Dr. Salomon Melgen have been having sex parties on the Caribbean nation for years.
     "When Menendez is there, he said, they have parties in the three-bedroom villa located in Casa de Campo’s Batey neighborhood. The parties feature '“sex, hookers and drinking.'”

Excuse me, sir, but is your wife faking it? Orgasm, that is? A study at Indiana University, which seems to have an ongoing and abundant interest in these matters, finds that more than a third of women say the last time they did the mattress mambo, they failed to achieve satisfaction.
     (It remains unclear why Indiana U. has a department that obsesses about sex. Of course, if you're stuck in Bloomington, Indiana, and your football team is a perpetual loser ...)

As the late Paul Harvey used to say, "Not why, just what ..."
     A British airport, plagued with flocks of birds that were a threat to aircraft safety, tried all kinds of sounds to frighten them away before they found the one that worked. Songs by Tina Turner.

Reader Dave says he picked this up on TV early this morning ...
      "This is your President speaking. There is nothing wrong with your television. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission. We will control the horizontal, the vertical, your healthcare, light bulbs, your personal vehicle and what your children will eat while at school and in the home.
     "We can control political imagery and make it flutter or with an executive order, shift it further left. We will control your social focus to a soft blur or sharpen it into federal clarity. For the next four years, sit quietly and we will control all you see, hear, consume and be allowed to consider.
     "I repeat: there is nothing wrong with your television. You are about to participate in a great, Marxist adventure. You are about to experience the awe and mystery which reaches from a controlling, centralized government to ... The No-Federal-Limits Zone."

Argus Hamilton --
     "The New York Marathon was canceled due to the storm damage. These runners got no respect. They'd looked pretty lame compared to everybody else in New York running down the road at the same speed carrying appliances and home entertainment centers."
