Other than pure evil, the thing that I despise the most in this world is pure hypocrisy. That is why I deeply despise most politicians. Our congress has 435 members in the U.S. House and 100 members in the Senate. Of the 535 members of congress, about 530 are nothing more than vile, reprehensible, and sleazy crooks who are looking out for their own Machiavellian interests and could care less about the U.S. and the American people. Yet the sad and tragic fact remains, that when all is said and done, the American People are totally responsible for the cesspool that exists in our federal government. Our great Constitution clearly gives the ultimate power to the People and the People must accept that power or continue to accept an ever increasingly corrupt government.
Today two of the most disliked humans in the U.S. are candidates for the office for president of the U.S. Since I am not a hypocrite, I looked at all of the candidates from the two major parties before the election process began, and I selected James Webb in the democratic party as the candidate who I thought best qualified. After Webb dropped out, I looked at the remaining candidates and then selected Dr. Ben Carson as my second choice. Now I have four remaining choices in the 2016 presidential election. On the following post, I will share with my readers how I will make my selection in 2016. However, before that post, I would like to list some examples of hypocrisy that I have seen in my lifetime relating to U.S. Presidents and to federal elections.
JOHN F. KENNEDY – John F. Kennedy was assassinated on November 22, 1963. Due to his untimely death, few Americans understood how incompetent and unqualified he was. President Kennedy was raised in a family where his father would bring his current mistress home to dine with the family. JFK, and his brothers Robert and Ted, learned from their father at an early age that womanizing is something a man should do. JFK spent far too much of his time as president in the pursuit of womanizing. JFK even brought several of his mistresses to the White House while his wife, Jackie, was present. This caused the Secret Service agents to segregate Ms. Kennedy from JFK’s girlfriends. One of JFK’s girlfriends was Judith Exner. Judith Exner was also a girlfriend of mobsters Sam Giancana and John Roselli. So JFK was the first president to bring organized crime into the White House through Ms. Exner. So what did the American People think about this? It was never reported, so the American People knew nothing about this until history books published it years later. JFK displayed his hypocrisy by “playing” the role of a good family man and a faithful husband.
RONALD REAGAN – Ronald Reagan was elected president in November, 1980, when he defeated President Jimmy Carter. Reagan campaigned against Carter by stating that Carter was financially irresponsible and by also pointing out that the National Debt was approaching $ 1 TRILLION. After his election Ronald Reagan proved to be one of the greatest hypocrites in history by decreasing taxes and increasing spending at the same time. These dual actions sent the National Debt soaring past the $ 1 TRILLION mark for the first time in the history of the U.S . Ronald Reagan became the poster boy of deficit financing in the U.S. government. ( Editor’s Note: But others followed and the size of the debt increased exponentially. Read on. )
RICHARD NIXON – Richard Nixon was defeated by JFK in 1960, but was elected president in November, 1968, by defeating Hubert Humphrey. Nixon was elected as a ” law and order ” candidate. In an act of hypocrisy that stunned the U.S., Nixon approved of the break in of the democrat national headquarters which was called the Watergate. Nixon was re-elected as president in November, 1972, after winning 49 states. As congress continued the Watergate investigation, Nixon resigned from the office as president rather than face certain impeachment and conviction.
GEORGE W. BUSH – George W. Bush was elected president in November, 2000, by defeating Al Gore in the closest election in U.S. history. The election results from Florida would decide who would be the next president. Gore’s team used the state Court system of Florida to obtain a re-count. Bush’s team obtained a ruling from the U.S. Supreme Court which in effect stopped the re-count and allowed the Governor of Florida, Jeb Bush, to direct the Secretary of State of Florida to certify that George W. Bush was elected president. As president, George W. Bush ordered, without congressional approval, American Forces to attack both Afghanistan and Iraq to retaliate for the 9/11 attack on the U.S. by foreign terrorists. In a worldwide display of hypocrisy, the dimwitted Bush stated that Iraq had ” weapons of mass destruction.” Not only did Iraq have no WMD’s, they had absolutely nothing to do with the 9/11 attack on the U.S. In an additional act of hypocrisy, Bush managed to increase the National Debt to the highest level in U.S. history and helped create the 2008 Great Recession.
BARACK OBAMA – Barack Obama was elected president in November, 2008. As a candidate Obama stated that he would reduce the National Debt by 50% in a few years. In an act of hypocrisy, Obama exceeded Bush’s reckless spending and increased the National Debt to another new high. Obama also appointed Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State. In another example of presidential hypocrisy, Obama stated about his healthcare system: ” If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.” All rational people now agree that Obamacare was a tragic failure.
HILLARY CLINTON – Hillary Clinton was appointed U.S. Secretary of State by Barack Obama. Ms. Clinton signed documents that she understood and would protect all classified materials. In a supreme act of hypocrisy, Ms. Clinton then ordered a private computer installed in her house in violation of U.S. Law and allowed and abetted classified documents that were sent to this insecure computer. Ms. Clinton’s acts of hypocrisy are far too numerous to list. Many consider her actions treasonous.
The ultimate display of vulgar and reprehensible hypocrisy exists in the totally biased reporting by 90% of the U.S. news journalists and media representatives who report the news. Recent releases by WikiLeaks demonstrate clearly that about 90% of our news media have worked to damage the campaign of Donald Trump by colluding with the Hillary Clinton campaign. The media bias reached a high level when Clarence Thomas was nominated for a seat on the Supreme Court. Justice Thomas stated that he was a victim of an electronic lynching by the liberal media. Justice Thomas assumed office on October 23, 1991. Donald Trump has been the victim of scatological and scurrilous attacks by the media disguised as news reporting. The assumption that a free press will self regulate and report facts fairly can no longer be accepted by U.S. Citizens. Clearly the news media has failed our Constitutional guidelines for fair reporting and government regulations must now be imposed. As a lifelong supporter of responsible free speech, this is the greatest tragedy and the greatest failure of Constitutional guidelines in my lifetime. Justice Thomas overcame the attacks by a biased media. How can American justice prevail if the news media attacks against Donald Trump deprive him of an elected office that he would have otherwise won?
