No. 154 – October 5, 2012


No, I am not talking about the GOP.  I am referring to the Democrats – and their end-run play.

I have refrained from any comments on the first presidential debate (which Romney obviously won with grace and dignity) until this morning’s unemployment report came out.

Bear ONE simple fact in mind.  The Obama Administration is the one who actually ALLOWS the numbers to be presented in THEIR favor.  This will be shown in a VERY SIMPLE conversation in a minute.

But first, let’s all take a deep breath.

First off, I was astounded at how quickly the GOP started patting themselves on the back, throwing high-fives all around and congratulating themselves on a well-deserved VICTORY.

Nothing could be further from the ACTUAL truth.  The game has JUST BEGUN.  We have not even scratched the proverbial surface yet.

The GOP still does not realize the SIZE and SCOPE of what they are up against.

Celebrate?  Celebrate what?  Now is the time to BUCKLE DOWN.  It is NOT the time to crank open the champagne.

Why not?

Because the Mass Media has gone “all in.”  For those of you who do not watch MSMBC or CNN, the debunking of the Romney debate “victory” has started in full force.  And people are already buying into it.

Bear in mind, the Chicago MOB Mentality:

“Feed the people everything that makes us look good.  The truth, the lies – anything that is in our favor – print it.  Anything that makes us look bad, don’t print it.  Suppress it.  Keep it completely out of the papers.”

And the Mass Media is following in lock-step.  They HAVE to – or else legs get broken – and people get killed.  Witness, the son of a prominent politician in Mexico, just this morning, being murdered.

Does FAST AND FURIOUS come to anybody’s mind?  And if you don’t think that the Chicago Mob and the Mexican Mob are not connected – then I have a bridge to Hell that I want to sell you.  

If you can’t draw any parallels to these two groups – then STOP READING right now.  You are a lost cause.

If you think this is another conspiracy theory of mine, then consider this little animated conversation, and then – hopefully – you will start to see what I mean.  Credit goes to Big Bob for sending in this dialog:

COSTELLO: I want to talk about the unemployment rate in America.

ABBOTT: Good Subject. Terrible Times. It’s 9%.

COSTELLO: That many people are out of work?

ABBOTT: No, that’s 16%.

COSTELLO: You just said 9%.

ABBOTT: 9% Unemployed.

COSTELLO: Right 9% out of work.

ABBOTT: No, that’s 16%.

COSTELLO: Okay, so it’s 16% unemployed.

ABBOTT: No, that’s 9%.

COSTELLO: WAIT A MINUTE. Is it 9% or 16%?

ABBOTT: 9% are unemployed. 16% are out of work.

COSTELLO: IF you are out of work, you are unemployed!

ABBOTT: No, Obama said you can’t count the “Out of Work” as the
unemployed. You have to look for work to be unemployed.


ABBOTT: No, you missed his point.

COSTELLO: What point?

ABBOTT: Someone who doesn’t look for work can’t be counted with those
who look for work. It wouldn’t be fair.

COSTELLO: To whom?

ABBOTT: The unemployed.

COSTELLO: But they are ALL out of work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ABBOTT: No, the unemployed are actively looking for work. Those who
are out of work gave up looking and if you give up, you are no longer
in the ranks of the unemployed.

COSTELLO: So, if you’re off the unemployment roles that would count as
less unemployment?

ABBOTT: Unemployment would go down. Absolutely!

COSTELLO: The unemployment just goes down because you don’t look for work?

ABBOTT: Absolutely it goes down. That’s how Obama gets it to 9%.
Otherwise it would be 16%. He doesn’t want you to read about 16%

COSTELLO: That would be tough on his reelection.

ABBOTT: Absolutely.

COSTELLO: Wait, I got a question for you. That means there are two
ways to bring down the unemployment number?

ABBOTT: Two ways is correct.

COSTELLO: Unemployment can go down if someone gets a job?

ABBOTT: Correct.

COSTELLO: And unemployment can also go down if you stop looking for a job?

ABBOTT: Bingo.

COSTELLO: So there are two ways to bring unemployment down, and the
easier of the two is to have Obama’s supporters stop looking for work.

ABBOTT: Now you’re thinking like the Obama Economy Czar.

COSTELLO: I don’t even know what the hell I just said!

ABBOTT: Now you’re thinking like Obama.

And THAT, my friends, is the mental state of this current administration – and ALL those gullible enough to vote for Obama.


Another reader, Steve T, who lives in Sacramento, put a real thought into my head the other day.  Try to follow his line of reasoning. It makes PERFECT sense.

He ventured forth a terrific idea – one that falls into what was just said above.

Steve surmised:

“Since Obama is lost without a yelling and screaming crowd, and since no tele-prompters are allowed, that puts the president in a real bind, when it comes to being able to hold his own in a debate.

“So, what is to stop the Mass Media from giving Obama the questions – or at least a hint of what the questions will be like – for the NEXT TWO debates?  Who would know the difference?  Nobody.

“Obama would redeem himself, the stupid American public would, once again, vote for an illegitimate president and we would be screwed for FOUR MORE YEARS.”

I asked him about the possibility of getting caught, or someone leaking the cribbing to the press.

He laughed.  “To the PRESS?  They are in the tank for Obama.  It is the only way Obama can win.  He has to cheat.  He doesn’t have any other choice.  The guy is a fake and a fraud.  THAT is precisely how he got to the presidency.  If the Mass Media helped to NOT VET him in the first place – how hard do you think it would be for them to pass off the questions for the next debates.  Ever heard of insider trading?”

I asked Steve, as to what happens if they really do get caught?  It would be a catastrophe for the Chicago Mob, the Mass Media, and the Administration.  It is too big of a gamble.

Steve looked at me with an incredulous grinned.  “How many days are left before the election?  So what, if Obama gets caught?  By then, the election will be over, Obama is back in the White House – and everything is just fine.”

I had to give him credit.  I had not thought of such a scenario.  Even in my distorted, conspiracy-muddled mind, I could not put that one together.

Yet, now I find it VERY interesting that NOT ONE Conservative pundit has even broached this very same idea.

When you think about it, the whole concept is very workable.  After all, where are Obama’s college transcripts, his FULL tax returns, the REAL reason he “gave up” his license to practice law – his real associations and past mentors, etc?  The Mass Media simply hid them.  Everybody is wondering when, WE THE PEOPLE, will get the real low down on Obama

Is this another conspiracy?

No, just the plain truth – in broad daylight, for everyone to see – if they care to actually look.


Everybody is salivating at the prospect of Paul Ryan debating Joe Biden.

They shouldn’t be.

Biden is as slippery as a piece of tofu trying to be picked up with a pair of chopsticks.

If Ryan is not VERY careful with his approach, he will lead with his chin – and get sucker-punched by the more crafty  Jumpin’ Joe Biden.

By this, I mean that Ryan has a tendency to get deep into the numbers, then, at times, he starts to stumble.  Time for Joe to “Jump” in.

Ryan will, at times, get frustrated with his opponent’s ignorance.  Time for Joe to “Jump” in.

If Ryan is not EXTREMELY careful, he will give Jumpin’ Joe the opening he is looking for.  And Joe will take full advantage.

Just picture “Uncle” Joe, as many people refer to him, as he chastises Paul Ryan:

“Now, I understand, Congressman Rayn, you do not have the experience that I have in these matters, having served in the SENATE for as long as I have, but I will not hold your inexperience, nor your impatience against you.  That is to be expected.”

DONE DEAL.  Ryan is dead in the water.

THEN, the mantra of the Mass Media will be:

“Ryan looked like a schoolboy being chastised by the school master.  He looked like the rank amateur that he obviously is.”

Then, the clincher that the Mass Media will embed into every listener’s mind:

“Do you really want a novice such as Paul Ryan just a HEARTBEAT away from the presidency?”

I say this with years of experience teaching argumentation and debate in college.  It is a method of “drawing in your opponent” and then clubbing him to death.

One reader very aptly put it this way:

“Don’t force your opponent into a trap – gently lead him.”

It is with high trepidation that I will view, not only the Ryan/Biden debate – but the other two presidential debates.

In football, you often hear the announcer say:

“Well, there is still 10 minutes left in the game.  That is a lot of time.  Anything can happen.”

If that is true, then 30 days left in this campaign is an ETERNITY.

That’s it for now.

Keep thinking positive – and never give up.  But don’t even think this election is in the bag.  It’s not.

    Yes I know what you say. I fill in my name because my browser has been tampered with so it does not do the job. So now I have to go fix my browser and I won’t have to type my name in anymore.

    Miss direction, not by you, but by my browser and whomever has be screwing around with it. Ahh, cyber space has a lot of bit bugs we don’t even understand; but we know there are bit bugs out there, just can’t identify them.

    But then you said something about being MOB cyber bugs out there, but I didn’t even think of that! MOB, huum, More Obama Bullshit, yes I see the meaning of the truth.

    Thanks for the update!!!!

    Sarah Palin mentioned Obama/Democrats probable foul intent during her internet with Hannity the night of the debate. She said that the Democrats would try to pull something and not to trust them. Good advice – they are doing just that. Don’t expect the GOP to fight back and call them on their lies and misinformation.

    I think most of us know what the Democrats and Obama are capable of – especially living in Washington State where there has been voter fraud for years (and we still have mail in ballots? – boggles the mind doesn’t it?) I fully expect Obama to go as far as to declare Martial law – or Wag the Dog (maybe that has already been done in Lybia). Obama will not go quietly if Romney wins – he was sent to reduce this nation to a third world nation;destroy the military strenght of this nation and he is not through. While not a supporter of Romney in the primaries I was thoroughly convinced by his performance, knowledge and demeanor in the debate that he would make an excellent president. I think he is smart enough to realize the many and various chicaneries the Democrats can devise. I believe even liberals could see the vast difference between the two men. As in this state the Democrats will “suddenly find more votes” and the Republicans need to stand watch.

    The Democrats are no longer a party of different ideals, but a party comprised of very evil people bordering on criminality. Lybia is a good example – people who believe Obama is not a Muslim or is not ineligible need to visit the nearest psychoanalyist – Marxism and the Muslim Brotherhood flourishes – and Obama is part and parcel of it all.

    It’s not over until the fat lady sings – I hope she sings soprano!

  • Brian Says:

    Whats all the excitement about? Romney clearly was more eloquent than Obama BUT did he really say anything concrete other than I have a Plan. Living in Thailand and reading the local English printed news in Financial Section. Economy of U.S. is in dumps and neither man is expected to deliver on his promises. They are saying it will take about 3 years for everything to work its way through. Ain’t no silver bullet and your not raising Defense Spending and Lowering Taxes and coming anywhere near balancing the budget. Everyone who thinks otherwise is living in fairyland.

    After 8 years of GW, the U.S. deserves what it gets.
