Simply the Worst Types of People

There’s something to be said for determination, as the old saying goes. But determination is only a virtue when it’s coupled with honesty, both in execution and objective. Unfortunately, as we’re seeing in politics these days, the most determined people happen to be those with the least amount of honesty, and they also face the least consequences for it.


Consequences are a quaint notion these days. For you kids out there, consequences are “the effect, result, or outcome of something occurring earlier.” Do poorly in school, abuse drugs, generally be a jackass, and you’re not very likely to make the most out of your life; things like that. They are also something liberal policies are designed to insulate people from.

It’s no wonder their leaders live in a consequence-free world in Washington and New York. But make no mistake, it is important to hold these people to account.

We’ve known all along that his henchmen were, but it turns out Barack Obama, the “scandal-free president,” was also neck-deep in the Russia hoax and the framing of Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn. There’s a bitter irony in a man who spent his life serving our country being smeared by one who spent theirs attempting to break it down.

Of course, audio of a call between Obama and former staffer “leaked” where the ex-president proclaimed outrage over his plan coming to its ultimate and just end. Movies aren’t as scripted as that call and its release.

Its release was an attempt to do what Democrats attempt to do: to lie to the American people; to fool us. If there’s one thing a progressive can’t stand it’s accountability. Barack Obama and his minions don’t want any for their illegal surveillance of the Trump campaign, Democrats in Congress don’t want it for their enabling of that illegal activity, and Democrats in the media don’t want it for anything. But make no mistake, they are all the worst kinds of people, and the future of the country is dependent upon all of them being held accountable for the things they’ve done.


They manufactured a scandal, violated the civil rights of their fellow Americans, ruined lives, and won the House of Representatives for their troubles. From there, they launched an impeachment of a duly elected president of the United States over the same scam.

For all their lies, they haven’t even faced as much as a round of tough questioning from anyone pretending to be a journalist. None of the former Obama administration officials greeted with generous cable news contracts as they left their old jobs have been fired for spending three years lying to their audiences about having seen “proof of collusion.” Adam Schiff is still lying. John Brennan is still lying. James Comey is still lying. With all the proof, all the sworn testimony to the contrary they desperately tried to keep secret, they’re sticking with their stories because a compliant media will give them cover.

There is not so much as one honorable person on staff at the Times, the Post, CNN, MSNBC. No one has expressed any remorse for lying to an audience that trusts them to tell the truth; none have called out their contributor colleagues. They’re letting the lies stand.

And why wouldn’t they? They’ve all done it too. Their “anonymous sources,” if they exist (and weren’t just Adam Schiff), burned them. They don’t care. They’re sticking with the lies because they wanted them to be true. Besides, they’re too busy covering up for the executive ordered mass slaughter of senior citizens in New York state by Governor Andrew Cuomo to care.


These people won elections and obtained power and riches through lies, and are looking to take the Senate and White House the same way. It’d be as crazy as they are to change methods now.

We always knew they were lying, the difference is now we have irrefutable proof – their own words, both on video and under oath. As they stand on those lies and the bodies of the coronavirus dead, it’s as important to remember how we got here as it is how they got where they are.

They are simply the worst type of people. If they’re capable of what they’ve done, as we know they are, just imagine what they’ll do. If they don’t face the consequences of their actions in November, we’ll all face them after that.
