Planned Parenthood, Benghazi, and our Fourth Estate

The Planned Parenthood videos and the Hillary Clinton testimony in front of the Congressional committee investigating the debacle at Benghazi have things in common and those things are depressing.  In both cases the wrong-doing is inarguable.  The ghouls at Planned Parenthood were negotiating prices for pieces of aborted humans.  They were haggling over the sale of baby parts.  Hillary Clinton knew at the time our ambassador was killed that he was killed in an organized terrorist attack, yet she helped to hide that fact from the American public for as long as possible. 

A second commonality is that in both cases the perpetrating parties continue to deny what is plainly obvious from evidence available to virtually anyone on the planet.  It’s literally (Literally, Mr. Vice President!) right there on video.

The depression starts in the next couple things the cases have in common.  One of those things is that what we have come to call the mainstream media – also known as the place where most voters probably get their news – is helping the perpetrating parties get away with it.  Executives, former employees, and business partners of Planned Parenthood were caught on tape in sales negotiations for pieces of aborted babies.  But CNN, ABC, CBS, the New York Times, etc., allow their customers to believe that if anything happened at all, it was that some sneaky conservatives are trying to frame Planned Parenthood with “highly edited” videos in order to defund “women’s health”.  Those same “news” organs are today in full-throated, lock-stepping, lip-syncing mode with the breaking news that Hillary Clinton has survived the “partisan” Republican attack made on her over the unfortunate events in Libya a few years ago that the GOP just keeps banging on about.


The really, really depressing part is that in both cases, it may well work.

Putin prowls, so Obama seeks a safe place to pee. It figures.

Labor force participation is the lowest it’s been since Carter was president.  Vladimir Putin publicly humiliated Barack Obama and the United States, both at a major United Nations gathering, and, viciously (and absolutely brilliantly), in our own, yuuuge, white elephant embassy in the heart of the Middle East.  Cities are falling to the Taliban as we lose Obama’s 'good war' in Afghanistan.  

So until some nut shot up a community college in Oregon, what was the top White House priority yesterday?  Naturally, like a laser-beam, it was focused on the burning issue of public transgender urination.

We are doomed.

“Suppose they gave a war and nobody came?”

There was an “anti-war” poster in the 1960’s that read:  “Suppose they gave a war and nobody came?”

On the long list of deeply stupid, Communist-approved, academically encouraged, hippie bullshit from the Vietnam era, this one really stands out for its full-frontal mental retardation.  The point of the poster is that if nobody shows up to fight, you can’t have a war.  Deep man, pass me the joint.  The problem of course comes if you think about it even a little bit.  What can it possibly mean that somebody “gave a war”?  Doesn’t it mean that somebody has started fighting somebody.  Somebody has invaded somebody else?  Somebody has started shooting somebody else?  Somebody has started bombing somebody else?  That is, if somebody “(gives) a war” there will be other somebodies who don’t have the option to not come.  They are already there.  Being shot at.  Being invaded


This is so obvious one wonders show much dope people had to smoke in the 60’s for that poster to become popular?  “Suppose they gave a war and nobody came?”  The answer is simple: The invader wins.  Ask ISIS.  Ask Russia.  But don’t ask Barack Obama or the U.S. State Department.  Evidently they’re still rolling doobies in the dorm, talking deep talk.
