When You Eliminate The Impossible; Whatever Remains, However Improbable, Must Be Taken Seriously
Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler ^ | 12/20/2009 | Subotai Bahadur

Posted on 12/21/2009 4:59:56 PM PST by thecabal

It is true that I am a blog slut. I write or comment at several blogs, and the discussions from one, influence what happens at another. Over at BELMONT CLUB we were discussing the insane situation we have politically; and trying to come to a conclusion as to what the future holds. I found myself answering several different questions, and stringing points together. If you don’t mind, I will bring the string for the LC’s to ponder. Items presented thusly are quotes from those with whom I was engaged in discussion.

At this time, it’s hard to predict what will really happen next fall in the polling booths. And that is frankly the only poll that really matters. [ This was part of a discussion where it was implied that things would be reclaimed in November.]

Truer words rarely spoken. However, we are dealing with people for whom it has been shown that the rule of law means absolutely nothing. Keep in mind that registration fraud is a massive Democrat funded [see ACORN] enterprise, and presumably vote fraud because otherwise why create all those false registrations [150,000 known false registrations accepted by the Democrat Secretary of State in Ohio in 2008 alone]? One has to wonder at what point the legitimacy of the vote count comes into question.

Having spent a fair amount of my career trying to figure out what was the truth behind the actions of various felons, witnesses, and victims [everybody lies sometimes]; I have learned that the first thing to look out for is when people suddenly start acting out of character. People are creatures of routine. They do not change those routines unless compelled to, or unless they believe that conditions have changed and a change is to their personal benefit.

TOPICS: Politics
KEYWORDS:
This is probably the best and most frightening analysis of our current political situation that I've ever read. It's a long post, but well worth your time. I suspect once you get started reading it, you'll be hooked like I was. As the author states, the only options which explain the way that our ruling class is currently acting will make your blood run cold.

Its come to the point that all the logical thinking people are having to apologize to themselves for not rendering more support to the Birch Society.

(the rest continue spewing their illogic)

“Democrats, Democrat party officials, and the government controlled media chose to deliberately insult and attack citizens who accepted what was in fact the invitations of the Congress-Critters to attend Town Hall meetings, and who dared to ask real questions and insist on answers. This was followed by the White House insisting that the Left “push back” against those citizens.

“Shortly thereafter Democrat Congress-Critters started having ACORN and SEIU security forces at these events.

“Citizens were threatened, blocked out, and eventually physically assaulted. The assailants, it seems, have judicial immunity.”

WHERE HAVE WE SEEN THIS BEFORE?

Well, that certainly is a good question. What do the politicians know that we don’t? How do they plan to kick and insult the voters repeatedly for a year and more, and then remain in office?

Not only have I read it. I am going to copy it to my iPhone so I can study it at leisure later.

This needs serious consideration and discussion.

A frightening editorial.

If this is anywhere near accurate, the government is too corrupt to change through the voting booth.

It will need to be overthrown by civil disobedience.

Either peaceful or voilent. More likely some of both.

I’m not that old, but I’ve never seen or heard of anything quite like it; at least in a “democracy”. Now if you look at tyrannical governments around the world, this kind of behavior is quite common.

The key sentence: They do not intend to lose power, and indeed are expanding their power.

My gut sense has been what was written -- that ACORN will manipulate the election results so that Hussein and the Rats stay in power no what what.

"How do they plan to kick and insult the voters repeatedly for a year and more, and then remain in office?"

I take it that's a rhetorical question?

A democracy is about the most tyrannical form of government that can exist. The truth is not mallable in a voting booth.

Yes. But no doubt there are a lot of people haven’t considered the possibilities.

As I recall, the title of this piece and its recurring theme, that when you eliminate the impossible, what remains must be taken seriously, however improbable, was often the working presumption of Sherlock Holmes.

It does seem impossible that the Dems could be stupid enough to deliberately throw themselves out of office.

We live under an oligarchy; frankly the Dem-Repub political theme is merely an exercise of the “Good Cop-Bad Con”. The Dems do what the Pubbies dream about.

The real game is DC-vs America..and DC cannot win once the Flyover Country is clear about the game. DC survives as long as Flyover Country believes the con.

It's definitely worth the read. I would have agreed with the article in Nov 2008, but now there is no question.

The comments are also interesting.

THE BATTLE OF ATHENS, TENNESSEE 1946

I couldn't read all of it. Ballot stuffing on a grand scale, I'm not buying it. Not when they know all of the firearm buying is going on, and they do nothing to prevent it. IIRC, two thirds of the rat attorneys general are arguing to incorporate the Second Amendment. Occam's razor tells me it's just shear arrogance and Chicago power politics.

Now there is a strong possibility that despite knowing that this is likely electoral suicide, knowing that it probably will finish off any hope that the economy will recover; that they are willing to publicly be seen as willing to pay off any Senator at any cost, pull any trick parliamentary maneuver, all to pass a bill [which they have not read, as with all major regime initiatives]. This bespeaks an arrogance worthy of the 1788 French nobility, a faith in a Socialist future worthy of a zampolit, or a sure and certain knowledge that they will never again be at risk of being held to account by the voters.

Wanna bet.

Oh, crap. This makes it all too clear. What does it mean when people who live or die by their fear of the vote now act in concert as though they have no fear of the vote? I’m pretty sure the answer is not, “It’s just a coincidence.”

This is pretty much what I've said in my Fourth of July Tea Party Speech

We now know that over 220 million - that’s 220 MILLION - people have been killed by their own governments since the beginning of the 20th century. Not casualties of war, but a casualty of the same evil that now appears to have gotten the upper hand here today. It’s that unappeasable appetite to control - and ultimately to consume - mankind. The will to power. 

So yes: ideas matter. And it is no exaggeration to say that the same ideas that have animated the 20th century’s worst mass murderers now have a happy home in the White House. Obama and his minders are worshippers in the same pew as Stalin, Castro, Mao, Chavez and Pol Pot. They all bow before the same altar of human sacrifice and power for power’s sake.

That's who we're dealing with today and that’s the pedigree of their ideas. The Constitution and the rule of law are just so much toilet paper to those who would rule us now. Our values – honor, duty, love of family, love of country, reverence for our Creator - are punch lines to sneering jokes told by smug ‘progressive’ late night TV show hosts to applauding audiences.

It's not about the money, folks. Don't believe that for a moment. Money’s just a means to the end. To what end? George Orwell told us long ago in his classic 1984:

 '...The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power. Not wealth or luxury or long life or happiness: only power, pure power... We are different from all the oligarchies of the past, in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites.’

 ‘The German Nazis and the Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized power unwillingly and for a limited time, and that just round the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal. We are not like that. We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it.’

  ‘Power is not a means, it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship.’

The object of persecution is persecution.

The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. '

 

So we are now in the endgame of Antonio Gramsci’s and Saul Alinsky's heirs and disciples. These are the murderous great-great-great-great-grandchildren of the French Revolution, cold-eyed with contempt for you and yours; spiral-eyed crazy with hate for what you believe in and they possessed of that utterly unappeasable appetite for controlling mankind.

Just as Hitler was completely candid in "Mein Kampf" about what he intended to do with Germany, the Jews and the world, so the Progressive Left has been completely up front about where they intend to take America, how they've planned to do it and what they're going to do once they get there.

So, when it comes to the Constitution and rule of law, it’s only a game - and when they're tired of it, they’ll not only sweep the pieces off the board, they’ll upend the table and put a bullet in you while they’re at it. As far as so-called 'progressives' are concerned, rules are for losers and history - god-awful bloody history - is my witness.

But don’t take my word for it. Here’s what Niccolo Machiavelli, 15th century advisor to Florentine nobles had to say when it came to conquering those who lived in relative freedom:

"When cities or provinces have been accustomed to live under a prince... they do not know how to live in freedom... and a prince can win them over with greater faculty and establish himself securely. But in republics, there is greater life...they do not and cannot cast aside the memory of their ancient liberty, so that the surest way to conquer them is to lay them waste."
      --This, from Machiavelli's most famous work, The Prince

So don’t look now, but we’re all living in what's left of a seriously weakened Constitutional republic in which the collapse of the ideas underlying individual liberty is very far advanced.

Take a good long look at what’s happening now in America. Then dare to turn around and take another look. If what they're saying doesn't square with what they're doing; if it looks like there's an concerted effort to destroy our once Constitutional Republic and replace it with... something else - then you're probably right. None of what's happening today makes any sense unless you look at it that way - and then it makes a perfectly clear and terrible sort of sense, doesn't it?

By every measure of reason, this regime is working to destroy our republic for their own ends. Even at its worst, America with all its faults, is a paradise compared to the concentration camp culture of the Machiavellian Marxists who have gotten the upper hand today.

So those of you who believe that you're going to talk or vote your way out of this are simpely whistling past the graveyard of the once-free American republic. None of the vermin who hold office today have any fear of being removed. That much is obvious.

You know where this is going to go, and that there can be only one way that it can end.
