Deconstructing Bill Clinton
BrookesNews.Com ^ | Monday October 9 2006 | Gerard Jackson

Posted on 10/09/2006 9:28:38 AM PDT by Brian Allen

Deconstructing Clinton is a lot easier than parsing sentences. Language has its own structure and rules, what we call grammar and syntax. It is these things that allow us to communicate efficiently with each other, even when we are not schooled in the rules of language. But in Clinton’s post-modernist world there are no rules because there is no reality. Existence is a matter of opinion and reality is what I think it ought to be. In such a world facts are fiction and fiction is reality with each reality being as good as any other. Hence whatever I say happened even if it didn’t happen because reality is subjective. But if reality is subjective what of morality? Simple. Morality is whatever I say it is.

This leads to the ultimate in relativism in which even suttee (the ancient Hindu practice of throwing women on the funeral pyres of their dead husbands) becomes as moral as wearing black as a symbol of mourning. The only morality that is not tolerated consists of Christian-Judeo values. Such a world makes Wonderland look like a rationalist’s paradise. Unfortunately, this kind of nonsense is what passes through universities, where traditions are mocked, history perverted and common decency is assaulted.

From there it gradually percolates through society where it is promoted and defended by intellectual impostors until its corrosive effect can be found in good old Bill Clinton who can deconstruct language by redefining “is” and asking the meaning of “alone”. Who can brazenly tell lies to the public because to him they are not lies because lies can have no meaning where the truth cannot exist. In this world the US Constitution does not mean what it says because the text has no meaning other than that which ‘progressives’ care to attach to it.

But underneath it all, Clinton knows that he is an intellectual and moral sham and that there are moral absolutes. Polygraphs, despite their limitations, can be used to detect lying because the truth does exist. Trying to conceal lies involves tension and inner conflict. It is these things that expose the liar. But if reality is only a social construct, a figment of the imagination in which truth has no meaning, how can lies be detected? But now we have nature on our side with the Pinocchio test. Yes, the nose does expand and become itchy when we lie, or at least tell serious lies. Why? Because that inner tension and conflict caused by trying to maintain the pretence is causing a physical reaction. It is saying you are lying. That there is an objective reality and you cannot successfully deny it.

Reality always makes itself felt — even in the form of a President’s nose growing when he lied to a jury and held the law in contempt. The reality of this man, his presidency, his legacy, his treason, is so awful, so morally damning that it is likely to leave an indelible stain on America’s body politic. Why did the American people surrender their inherent decency and common sense to this creature? Why do so many hold him in high esteem? The principle reason, I believe, is because they have become imbued with the false notion that morality, integrity, courage and a sense of honour are private matters that have no bearing on character or leadership — unless the leader is a Republican. But the cry from the Clinton cheer squad that “sex is private” was merely a device to conceal from the American public the awful truth that he is bereft of any virtues. As Teddy Roosevelt put it so many years ago:

We cannot expect our republic to endure permanently if we do not demand honesty in our public officials....Liar is just as ugly a word as thief, because it implies the presence of just as ugly a sin....If a man...perjures himself or suborns perjury, he is guilty under the statute law. Under the higher law, under the great law of morality and righteousness, he is precisely as guilty if, instead of lying in a court, he lies in a newspaper or on the stump; and in all probability, the evil effects of his conduct are infinitely more widespread and more pernicious.

I once read a remark by an Israeli intelligence officer. He was addressing the psychological studies they do on terrorists. He said something to the effect of this: "we gave up trying to understand them."

Because there is no rational framework for their actions, understanding them is like grasping jelly.

In the same context, I submit to you the idea of understanding Bill Clinton.

While BJBilly stumbles thru life building his fake "legacy", the words of a great woman will forever haunt him.

But in Clinton’s post-modernist world there are no rules because there is no reality.

George Orwell's 1984 is rife with this logic. Read it and you will understand the DemonicRat party. Fact mean nothing. History is plastic and can be changed to fit the political expediency of the present. Big Brother is all powerful and to be feared. The value of human life is nil.

George Orwell was a brilliant man years beyond his time.

Should rename the title to "Destructing Bill Clinton."

<< "we gave up trying to understand them." >>

I've spent years throughout Africa and the middle-east, have worked with many Israeli and other agents and know their MO's fairly well. My best picture was drawn for me, though, a few days after Orenthal James Simpson had murdered his former wife and the waiter unfortunate enough to be there at the time. I remarked to a retired Colorado Supreme Court judge that I couldn't "understand" how a "man" like Simpson could slaughter the mother of his children and leave her carcase lying in its blood and that of essentially a passing stranger. All of that within ten feet of where his children were sleeping -- and then drive home, take a shower and big-shot it off to Chicago to work as if nothing was amiss.

My friend asked me if I could have committed the murders and, when I said that of course I could not, pointed out that I would never need to nor ever could understand beyond that point and aught not waste my time trying.

Thus the final piece fell into place insofar as the Israeli and other agents' attitudes -- and policies -- were concerned.

It was and is an absolute impossibility and thus an absolute waste of time to try and understand evil. Sufficient that we recognize it.

And kill it.

<< George Orwell was a brilliant man years beyond his time. >>

Just finished a piece one of whose conclusions was to the effect that the only-incidental "administration" that occurred coincidentally the recidivist, treasonous, lying, looting, thieving, Neo-Axis-founding, mass-murdering co-serial rapist gang AKA the Cli'ton Crime Family so squalidly be-squatting and be-manuring our nation's once white house was so absolutely dysfunctional that George Orwell’s 1984 must have been seen, by any of the players who was ever sober or "straight" long enough to stick up his head and take a look around, as offering a beacon of hope.

And a place of relative sanity.

"Existence is a matter of opinion and reality is what I think it ought to be."

deconstructing clinton… "just because I could"

 
VIRTUAL KILL
THE CHRIS WALLACE-BILL CLINTON INTERVIEW DECONSTRUCTED

by Mia T, 9.27.06

 

 

VIRTUAL SURREALITY

A virtual kill of bin Laden seems apt. One should never expect more of bill clinton. And there is a certain symmetry, a perfect parry for clinton's 'virtual obsession.' 9


Hypocrisy abounds in this Age of clinton, a Postmodern Oz rife with constitutional deconstruction and semantic subversion, a virtual surreality polymarked by presidential alleles peccantly misplaced or, in the case of Jefferson, posthumously misappropriated.

The Other Nixon
Mia T

With everyone beginning to understand the dynamics of the clinton failure to fight terrorism, 8 prospects appeared even bleaker for the quondam shoo-in and for her husband's legacy, to which said prospects are inextricably bound.

As long as the voters believe the clintons willfully failed to kill or even capture bin Laden--and worse, that they did so for reasons of self-aggrandizement--there can be no scenario in which they recapture the White House.

Hence, bill clinton's 'virtual kill' on Fox Sunday morning.

Although "kill him" must have polled really, really well, the interview didn't help the clintons; the story remained on page one... and the hemorrhaging continued...

That is, until the Foley scandal hit the fan....

Better yet, "Decompensating Bill Clinton." And let's get him while we can because at the rate he's aging he'll soon be Decomposing Bill Clinton.

Reagan was the Teflon President.

Clinton was the K-Y President.

Deconstructing Clinton is a lot easier than parsing sentences.

When I read that opening sentence, I thought it read "Deconstructing Clinton is a lot easier than passing gas..." I think maybe my reading is perhaps more appropriate.

Think of deconstructing a clinton in terms of disassembling him: power lust. ego. libido. personal skills. office politics ability and proclivity [to calculate, manipulate and navigate].

Virtual Kill

Mia, fortheluvofgawd, that's a masterpiece, which really says something when talking about your work.

Amazing piece; effectively extracts and illuminates the point from all the noise that passes for "news."

"As long as the voters believe the clintons willfully failed to kill or even capture bin Laden--and worse, that they did so for reasons of self-aggrandizement...."

Mia -I will offer three bits of data....the fact that WJC chose the Muslim side in the Bosnia conflict, that he IGNORED the Muslim connection to Oklahoma City-and in fact tried to pin the deed on the american right wing-and that he is an agent for Dubai. These three facts-and especially as he is willing to regard the radical Muslims' worst enemy-the American right wing-as his own-IMHO he and the american Left are colluding with the enemy toward a common goal. Our denial renders us blind.

Needed this island of sanity for a moment. TV show just now had some long segment with Ethel Kennedy, with a reporterette kissing her ring and "wow-ing" over every word-crumb she was being tossed by what she called "American royalty, Bobby's beloved widow."

Out of the clear blue sky, the venomous woman says, *of course, the US was #1, top of the heap, and well liked the world over when Bill Clinton was President ....*

Hoping my fury will subside by sharing this.

Close your eye, imagine The Arkansas Grifters in the Oval Office....

Forget your difference with the GOP and get to work to get this despicable duo out of the public eye for good.

The petty, sniping, bitterly jealous liberals can never resist getting a dig in. I read one the other day from Sigourney Weaver, and one from Warren Beatty at the recent screening of Reds...they aren't worth looking up to quote, it's all the same. I can only conclude they must constantly spew to keep from choking on their own poison.

Good observation - I'll try to keep in mind that I should be pitying them, rather than letting them get to me. Thank you.

You are preaching to the choir.
