Wipegate doesn’t just apply to Clinton as the GOP also wants to wipe away the Benghazi truth

Spellchek has published many a post highlighting the GOP goal in the Wipegate scandal. It’s ONLY goal has been to bring down the 2016 Clinton campaign. Period. Never have they seriously pursued the real story in Benghazi. On May 6, 2013, Spellchek published this.

The GOP angle has become quite clear. Benghazi for them is merely a political opportunity to attempt to derail the Clinton 2016 candidacy before it ever gets legs. They know there isn’t any smoking gun to tie-in Obama who is a lame-duck anyway. So the next best thing is to tie Clinton in to the video cover-up and the non-response to the attacks in time to save lives.

Despite all the attention that will be paid to Benghazi this week, we still won’t find out why. Nor will anyone even be asking the question. It just disgusts me. The GOP will be proudly displaying their badge of honor that they are fighting to get the truth out after all this time despite the Obama Administration doing their level best to just make it go away. Not in my book. The GOP may be doing all it can to score political points and better position themselves for 2016, but they aren’t pursuing the truth that really matters.

Don’t get me wrong. Tar and feathering Clinton for her involvement may be the best option the GOP has to take her down in 2016. Please proceed. But where is the ‘real’ investigation? I want to see the GOP pursue it with the same vigor they have for Clinton’s neck.

Clinton will almost surely never face any criminal charges. And you can be sure that the GOP will stand down if they get what they want anyway which is Clinton dropping out of the race. And the truth will stay hidden. It’s much more than the 4 dead Americans. The weapons trafficking has surely killed more and we’ll never know that number. Sure I hope Clinton pays. She’s a criminal. But the bigger fish will never even face a press conference let alone a prosecutor. Way to go GOP!

A better solution to protect L.A. water reservoirs than plastic balls?

Black plastic balls are the answer to saving the Los Angeles water supply?

Hormone-Mimicking, Endocrine-Disrupting Nightmare? L.A. Just Dumped Millions of Plastic Balls into Its Drinking Water

I have a dark wet environment in my backyard as well. It’s called my septic tank. Just sayin’. And isn’t the idea here to block sunlight as the ultraviolet rays can transform chemicals in the water into bromate, a suspected carcinogen? Why wouldn’t the ‘greenies’ simply cover the reservoirs with solar panels? Wouldn’t that be a win-win? Save California residents from cancer and create some free energy to boot?

Finally, the good people of Connecticut get to keep what they earn

Do you live in Connecticut? Lucky you. Today is day one for 2015. Meaning it’s the first day of the year you have earned enough to satisfy your burden to pay for the cost of government and get to keep all that you earn. 206 days into 2015. All that you have earned year-to-date has gone to pay for the socialist utopia you live in. Only now do you get to start keeping your sweat equity.

This info comes to us courtesy of the Americans for Tax Reform and their annual accounting of the total cost of government Americans are burdened with each year – http://www.atr.org/happy-cost-government-day-america-workers-toil-186-days-pay-full-costs-government#ixzz3WBnGDGAl

Connecticut citizens just happen to have it worse than every other state in the Union as their COGD falls on July 26th in 2015.

States like Connecticut and New Jersey must work past national COGD in order to pay for the costs of high spending and taxes in their states. The latest state COGD once again occurs in Connecticut, falling on July 26 for 2014.

Did you get your money’s worth? You probably think so if you’re on the receiving end of the wealth redistribution scale. COGD is meaningless to you. But for those that pay the freight for your free ride, it’s not so ‘fair’ and ‘just’ as our activist friends are always calling for.

Was Trump right about McCain?

That depends upon which prism you view it through. Technically, he was. The only reason we all know the story of Senator John McCain is because he was captured and held as a prisoner of war. Had he merely served his term out as so many other Vietnam veterans that never received any notoriety had, he would also be seen in the same light. Despised by so many at the time they came home, a necessary evil to others. Only a small segment of Americans viewed America’s war fighters as heroes regardless of the circumstances.

Of course Trump blew the delivery. Those who speak without a filter are not long for politics. Not when we live in a world in which candidates are elected for the shallowest of connections to a voter. He had to make the stupid comment that he doesn’t like POW’s which blew any shot he had at pointing out that heroes come in different flavors. Some accomplish great victories in a war theater. Others suffer greatly. Getting captured is seen by some as reason for scorn, not elevation to heroic status. Regardless of where you stand on the merits of McCain and his hero status, Trump botched the way criticism must be handed out in a campaign in which opponents are ready and waiting for a slip up.

There are a significant number of ex-servicemen who fall into this ‘gray’ area category in the minds of some. Including yours truly. I never saw war during my tour. Doesn’t mean I wasn’t ready to fulfill my oath. Some will say our nations first responders are more heroic as they tempt fate all the time. Others will say if you enter into a hazardous job with your eyes wide open you shouldn’t expect any special praise.

What qualifies as heroic varies widely. However, Trump has no authority to lecture others as to who rises to their standard for a hero. In a long campaign, it will be forgotten about as time goes by just as Trump will be once his 15 minutes runs out.

The smartest and dumbest people in Greece in the same article

Who is it that has such wisdom? Why, that would be Lefteris Paboulidis of course. He sees the folly in continuing to play the bailout rope-a-dope game in an attempt to evade paying the price for the failed Greece socialism experiment.

“It would be better not to have a deal than the way it was done because it will certainly be worse for the years to follow,” said Lefteris Paboulidis, who owns a dating service business.

“I would have preferred something else to happen, such as Grexit, where we would have starved in the beginning but dealt with it ourselves,” the 35-year-old said.

Interestingly enough, the very same article contains a quote from perhaps the dumbest person in Greece to boot..That would be Katerina Katsaba. She loves to drink Kool-Aid and would prefer more of the same.

“I trust our prime minister — the decisions he will take will be for the best interests of all of us.”

The best interests of ALL Greeks would be take your medicine, despite how harsh AND insure that your government doesn’t continue to govern in such a manner that led to where you are today. Foolishly believing that any government which practices unsustainable policy will somehow now police itself and truly do what is best for the nations people isn’t just dumb, it’s dangerous.

Of course, the Greeks are hardly alone in being foolhardy. It’s happening around the globe. Even if a policy maker proposes legislation that would allow true market growth unencumbered by artificial manipulation, the powers that be simply cannot stand by and keep their fingers out of the pie.

Remember, correction of past mistakes cannot be erased by bailouts or other deals. All debts are always paid. Always. They are either paid by the borrower or lender or a third party but they never just go away with the passage of time. Bailouts can only buy time and make the true cost even more in the long run.

Greece may be a tiny country with a relatively small problem on a global scale, but this has always been about a larger problem, that being the EU and its euro currency. Beyond that, the snowball down the mountain turning into an avalanche analogy applies here. The whole world is watching because they don’t want their day of reckoning to come calling. But it will. It must. Time always catches up.
