Thug Nation….

The following article was published over at The Pigeon Pages by Sally LeMaster. Miss LeMaster is an investigative reporter who is on an endless pursuit for the truth – in an effort to get this country back from the clutches of those who are in the process of destroying it. The world of this article are right in line with my thinking. – Rourke


“In my opinion, Gennifer Flowers was telling the truth; so was Monica Lewinsky, and so was Kathleen Willey, and so, lest we forget, was Juanita Broaddrick, the woman who says she was raped by Bill Clinton.” – Christopher Hitchens 

“I’m an American. I believe in truth. The difference is between truth and 
falsehood.” – Charles Krauthammer on Benghazi

“The fact is that the Solyndra scandal is just the tip of the iceberg. Much of the Department of Energy’s green energy lending program is a SCAM. It is a slush fund of pork for paying back campaign contributors.” – Dick Morris

“While people are free to draw different conclusions from the facts, there should be no debate over whether the American public is entitled to have all of the facts.” – Trey Gowdy

“Birds of a lawless, bigoted feather bully together.”

– Michelle Malkin

A dreadfully large number of media outlets seem to really believe that whoever shouts the loudest is the one people will pay attention to. Worse, many seem to think that ignoring a story adamantly enough and for a long enough period of time will finally just make it go away by the sheer weight of their silence on the subject, thus keep it from becoming a focus for the public at large. Sadly, for America, that seems to lately have been the case. Low information voters abound, apathetic ones abound more, and even those who do not vote usually omit this civic duty out of ignorance or indifference, if not both. Too many people are unenlightened when it comes to factual history and actual current events. It seems the government wants it that way, and spares no effort or expense in fostering this ongoing mental malaise. 

But the information is there. Has been all along. In 2009, Michelle Malkin published a book titled Culture of Corruption, which was a detailed exposé of Barack Obama and his associates. In 2012, David Limbaugh wrote a book titled The Great Destroyer and Monica Crowley wrote a book called 
What the Bleep Just Happened? The Left attacked these authors and their works vehemently. They have since been vindicated repeatedly in all of their assertions. There were many such works published on the corruption of Barack Obama, not only books but also blogs, commentaries, op-eds, articles, etc. One article that sticks out in my mind is the one written by John Wallace for Liberty News Online in 2011, calling for “criminal indictments and impeachment” which are now being called for by more prominent voices such as Judge Jeanine Pirro and former Congressman Allen West, as well as Sarah Palin. Fox News, World Net Daily, The Blaze, and other news outlets have focused on the corruption of this administration for years, honestly and openly. Sean Hannity especially has taken up the task of holding Obama and his associates accountable for their actions and inaction with regard to many questionable and even scandalous stratagems. More recently, Megyn Kelly, with all of her legal experience and expertise, has leveled her skills at the administration’s practices. Too few, still, are paying any attention. 

Of course, it did not start with Obama. The Nixon administration, especially recently, has come into focus all over again in light of the mounting scandals of the Obama administration, both for comparison and for contrast. And of course, few administrations have seen the sort of corruption manifested during the Bill Clinton era. Furthermore, few administrations have gotten away with the kind of dishonorable deeds we know Bill Clinton was guilty of. That is, until Obama came along. Many commentators have stated they have never in history seen anything like either the arrogance and abusiveness of a president or the blatant lack of accountability and opposition from the other side of the political spectrum. Certainly Nixon, and both the elder and younger Bush, and for that matter even Reagan (recall the Iran-Contra affair) were held to much more stringent criteria by political opponents and allies alike. 

What we have seen during Barack Obama’s presidency, if we choose to call it that, is unprecedented in terms of the startling lack of answerability. The list of scandals gets larger as time passes. Fast and Furious, Benghazi, the IRS scandal, the NSA scandal, the advocacy of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and even appointment of members of the group to key roles in the Obama administration, the Bundy Ranch incident, the border crisis, Syria, Iraq and Iran, the lack of support for Israel, the disinterest shown toward the attack on flight MH17, Bowe Bergdahl’s release in exchange for 5 key Taliban commanders, the list goes on. When it all adds up, the answer to the equation cannot be ignored. Now there are even threats to use SWAT teams against illegal immigrant protestors, added to the increasingly aggressive use of force on the part of police against ordinary Americans who are still “innocent until proven guilty.” American citizens are being treated like criminals while illegal aliens, even known terrorists, are allowed to roam free. As with any criminal organization, the Obama administration is not known by what they do only, but also by what they allow, what they tolerate. Obama’s DOJ allowed guns to be sold to drug cartels and are allowing illegal immigrants into our country freely, many with criminal records. This is classic mob behavior. 

If it is not clear to everyone by now that Barack Obama not only has Socialist and Muslim affiliations and agendas, but also ties to massive organized crime, then far too many people are not paying attention. Chicago has not produced anyone on par with Barack Obama since Al Capone. If Obama is, as a few commentators have asserted, “the president Nixon always wanted to be,” then he is also the gangster Al Capone always wanted to be. Intimidation is a powerful weapon in the quest for power. Organized crime has always relied on violence or the threat of violence in order to thrive, but other forms of intimidation go a long way in silencing opposition or preventing the public from knowing, or at least from proving, the secret operations of criminal organizations. Bribery is key as well, because money can often buy silence or acquiescence which otherwise would not be there. 

One other thing to keep in mind. Obama’s regime has leveled the IRS and EPA, and especially Eric Holder’s DOJ, against his political opponents. I’m confident Trey Gowdy’s investigation will prove this, though Obama may have successfully removed any trace of direct culpability on his part. When you have the weight of such powerful agencies to use against those who stand up to you, it is much easier to get rid of evidence. Obama has also managed to use the law to advance his lawlessness. Over-legislation does not deter crime, however, it rather makes it thrive, as in the case of prohibition and Al Capone. This is one of the arguments for legalizing marijuana, though that argument is complex and out-of-scope for this writing. Obama has proven skillful in making use of existing laws to further his agenda and criminalize those who oppose him. The SCOTUS ruling in favor of Hobby Lobby is a significant step in reversing this trend, one which I hope will continue. 

Nonetheless, mob politics and thug tactics continue to be used by those who crave power. Hillary Clinton has made as much use of thug politics as her husband did in the past, perhaps more so, particularly when she needed to silence the women Bill Clinton had allegedly raped or molested while he was in office. Threats and intimidation abound in her history. The women such as Monica Lewinsky, Juanita Broaddrick, Kathleen Willey and Gennifer Flowers, all of whom made allegations of sexual misconduct against her husband have testified to being in fear for their lives at certain points during the scandal. It remains open to interpretation whether such threats were meant to include violence or death, or merely public or financial ruin, but the message of intimidation was clear and certain. As with Chicago mob politics, what you don’t say is as important as what you do say. Hillary Clinton is a quintessential thug as much so as her husband.

Harry Reid is another example of our thug nation mentality which now infects the government at almost every level, as evidenced by the incident at Bundy Ranch, in which the Feds used over-the-top aggressive tactics to stop what they said was illegal grazing on federal property, acts of force which they have yet to employ toward stopping the invasion of our southern border by criminals and terrorists (yes, some of them ISIS or at least jihadist militants). Reid then called the family and their supporters ‘domestic terrorists’ because they were willing to defend themselves against unfair and unjustified infringement by the federal government against their property and even the rights of their state over what constitutes a federal abuse of authority against the constitutional limits on said power. It is called the 10th Amendment in the Bill of Rights.

I am not going to go into great detail about the exact connections of these Leftist elitist mob politicians, because writers like Michelle Malkin and Monica Crowley have been thorough in covering that in their writings. I don’t want to plagiarize. Their books are and have been on my recommended reading list which is also posted on this website.

What my own testimony brings to the table is mainly filling in the blanks. When you start to connect the dots, the picture becomes even more sinister than it might at first appear. Anyone who has studied the history of the Mafia and other mob clans of the past and present knows how they have operated throughout history up to present day. Death is usually the penalty for betrayal, depending on who you know and how powerful your friends are. It is interesting to note that with most oppressive governments, whether we speak of Hitler’s Nazis or Stalin’s Soviet Communism, aggressors like North Korea and Iran or fanatics such as ISIS, the methods used to maintain power and control are the same. Destroy your enemies, political or otherwise, by any means necessary to ensure the success of the collective effort, the elitist regime, the ruling party. In mob terms, protect the family at any cost.

Leaders like Rahm Emanuel and terrorists like Bill Ayers are another example of how this mob mentality operates. Lying, stealing, even murder, are not excluded from their methods, as long as it can be kept quiet, or at least distanced enough to be unprovable. It does not matter what someone knows, it only matters what can be proved. This safeguards the rights of every American to due process and goes a long way in helping prevent anyone from going to prison for crimes they did not commit. When abused, though, it can allow the guilty to go free. That is the price we pay for our freedom. Some day I hope to see Rahm Emanuel behind bars along with Barack Obama, but will take considerable effort and careful, precise litigation to make that a reality. They are entrenched in power and have a far-reaching web of protection, ranging from mob enforcers of every stripe to members of the federal and state government in their pocket. That is power you can’t buy. But they also have money to buy more power. Deep pockets provide much protection in the world of the crime syndicates.

That does not mean we should close our eyes to obvious evidence, however. This has been the case with much of our media. They ignore the ever-increasing evidence of wrongdoing, hoping it will just go away. It is not going to go away. Whether by law enforcement, attorneys, reporters or private investigators, these allegations must be given attention, and, as Trey Gowdy put it, this attention must follow the facts where ever they lead, and more importantly hold the guilty accountable. As Greta Van Susteren recently stated about the IRS scandal, “there is too much smoke” for there to not be a fire somewhere. A special prosecutor must be appointed. Eric Holder’s DOJ is as corrupt as the Obama administration which it protects so effectively from outside scrutiny. The clock is ticking, however, and it is just a matter of time before Obama and all those who work with him are exposed for what they are. Obama is just hoping to ride out the clock long enough for his coup to succeed.

If even half of the allegations against Barack Obama and his supporters are true, we unquestionably have a criminal enterprise in operation on such a vast scale that nothing in history rivals it. It is going to take a combined effort on the part of all Americans, regardless of their political leanings, to challenge it.If it goes unchallenged, The United States of America will be no more.

  1. It frustrates me to read things like this. It is frustrating to understand that despite Sally’s thoroughness, she barely scratched the surface. It’s disheartening to know that the american people themselves, because of ignorance and/or disengagement and/or flights of fancy have done this to this country…. and most still have no clue nor ever will.

    Confidence is high that many will carry-on accordingly, completely oblivious to what’s happening and detached from their own responsibility for it. We seem surrounded by those who willingly jump at the chance to support the next Gypsy wagon driver that stops by to sell their cure-all elixir. There’s a reason why Miss Cleo’s psychic hotline was so successful before the Feds shut it down…

    This is not to say that we are without hope, surely we still have that, but at what amount? My own feelings on how much hope we have run hot & cold by the half-hour, I’m a piss-poor judge of it.

    There comes a time when these reviews on how bad things are and how we got here and who drove us here lose their impact. Maybe it’s time to stop dissecting how we got here and just deal with the fact we’re here. If you wake up in the middle of the night and find a stranger standing beside your bed and holding a gun to your head, it would seem pointless to reminisce on the mistakes you made that got you there. It’s also not the time to wonder about all the poor life decisions the gunman made that led him to your bedside, what has motivated his actions or what his true intent might be. The most immediate facts are all you need, man holding a gun inches from your head. Your options are likely limited and time is short.

    Like it or not, know it or not, that’s where we’re at. We have a gun to our heads, our options are few and time might or might not be short. It would be a real bitch to guess wrong on that one. I’d be quick about it if I were you, there may come a day when all you have is all your gonna have for some time…. reminiscing won’t help, and likely won’t make you feel any better either.

  2. While we can’t seem to get the attention of the low information voter, we can be aware and prepare for the long haul ourselves.

    The attention span of people these days is something less than three days. Talking to people at a diner the other day and some college age kids thought the sanctions against Russia started AFTER MH17 was shot down. Nobody pays attention to world news since it is happening to someone that isn’t in their circle of Facebook Friends.

    All we can do is be ready to duck, avoid the sheeple, stay away from the trouble spots, and not become a target.

    Plan ahead. Hope for the best, but, prepare for the worst.

  3. The big problem is, nobody cares.
    Dem voters will always vote Dem, no matter who they hurt or murder.
    The supporters of the regime will always support it, no matter how many crimes are committed, no matter how many people die. Nobody cares.
    Nothing will ever change. It will only get worse and worse.
    I saw the movie “Purge- Anarchy” last night. As I left, I though to myself: soon, this will be every day in America, with the Regime simply gunning down the non-conformist in the streets. With nobody caring.

  4. John Galt- I think you have hit the nail on the head. . . . I rarely even bother to read these articles anymore. . . I know all this stuff is going on. . . all the conservative writers seem to do is tell us where we are. . . . the important question is: What do we do now?!most of the writing now is “bleh, bleh, bleh…..” I tune it out, and concentrate on how to help my family. The country is beyond repair, I am afraid.

  5. All of the time this has happened George and Pork chop Cheney are still looking for weapons of mass destruction. Remember when he had the pilot suit on that was to small. Then his famous words that I will never forget ‘MISSION ACCOMPLISHED’.

    • Listened to the news lately? Amazingly there are stories of Isis storming CHEMICAL WEAPONS FACTORIES in Iraq, as well as reports of chemical and biological weapons in Syria that came from Iraq.

      If we could just go back in time….but we can’t.


  6. Tom,

    There were WMD’s in Iraq. Saddam used nerve gas to wipe out thousands of Kurds years before the war. And almost every top ranking liberal stated that Iraq had more WMD”s that needed to be eradicated.


    But, of course, after the fact, the media forgot their statements.

    I have responded to your charge, so now you can respond to the author’s charges against the current administration instead of changing the subject.

  7. I love my country of birth, and I’m a patriot till the end. 15 years ago I moved to Australia to get married and have sinced raised my 5 children as proud citizens of both countries. Being outside of the Media machine has opened my eyes up beyond explanation to what I thought true back in Ohio. Needless to say, as home sick as I get at times, I feel my family is best served staying put in Australia. A profound sadness comes over me watching a once great nation slowly decay and descend into darkness. I pray for all of you fighting for your rights and what is inherently good. I miss the days of the Reagan Administration when the good of the people was foremost, and policy of change was for the betterment of America.

  8. Ansidian, I appreciate your heart felt comments. I understand that if we looked back from this very date 20 years, 40, 80 or any number we care to choose we would likely find many who feel like we do today. Each generation of Americans is tested. It would be foolish and insulting to those who came before us if we were to claim that the challenges we face today are more difficult than what they faced. Different, to be sure. But more difficult… hardly.

    History hasn’t been easy on America. We were born from struggle and it has been that way ever since. The high points of our history are usually brought about with unbelievable cost to our country… measured in human lives. Take the Marshal Plan as an example. It saved Europe, and really it saved the world from fascism. We paid dearly to keep our freedom.

    Today’s problems are different. They come from within as much as from the outside. They are different but not more difficult. The thing I worry about most is that we as a people have changed. For whatever reasons, collectively we may have decided that the cost of keeping America America is to high. We no longer care for the struggle, we no longer have the stomach for it. We have decided that less is preferable to the struggle…. I hope that’s not the case, but I worry that it is….
