“I’m rubber and you’re glue. What you say about me bounces off me and sticks to you!”
Who is right and who is wrong is the 24/7 process of governing in the U.S. And increasingly Americans are tiring in their efforts to keep up with the truth in important political issues of the day. Making that process virtually impossible is the hypocrisy they must wade through to try and find the truth. It seems that political truth is buried deep. To get to it requires digging through the varying stories and perspectives of those stories, the lies and misrepresentations of those who tell the stories, only to when finally getting to the truth finding that it is really not the truth but something someone either made up or painted with a perspective putting some cause in a good light. The trouble is not the story — it’s dealing with the person or persons who tell the story. Enter Pocahontas.
Elizabeth Warren — Massachusetts Senator — who has donned the banner of Leftist righteousness and arbiter of all things politically correct and allowable — has become the Queen of Hypocrisy in D.C. Almost daily she climbs into some pulpit to spew her anti-Trump venom making her minions certain that the President is actually a three-headed ogre who hides under a bridge waiting for unsuspecting African American and Muslim children to cross the bridge only to devour them.
What is craziest to me is that absolutely NOTHING the President does is viewed by Warren as an accomplishment, yet alone something good for the Nation and its people. She has repeatedly called him a racist, a xenophobe, he is Islamophobic, homophobic, and evil. She is not the only Leftist to do this, but she is more visible because she is a U.S. Senator and a likely 2018 presidential candidate. And the Mainstream Media (MSM) love her. Why? Because she will daily spew the same trash that they spin. But she has Congressional “legitimacy.”
The MSM give her a pass everytime she says anything: ANYTHING! I know of not one single instance things she has said have been called into question by the Media, no matter if they were not true. The reason? She has been promoted in the Democrat Party to share the dais of political correctness with former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. And when Nancy speaks, everybody listens. The pair lead all Leftists in blatant hypocrisy almost daily. They are Leftist newsies’ dream.
Elizabeth Warren. Let’s look at the latest Warren hypocrisy. (Actually, her latest is just taking an oldie but goodie and sprinkling some “new” on it) President Trump labeled her Pocahontas because in her quest to intimidate Harvard to give her a prestigious position, she claimed she is Native American. By all counts she is not. She won the position. She has been given multiple opportunities to lay the mystery to rest by taking a simple DNA test, but she refuses. And everyone pretty much knows why. She is now using the President’s statement to raise money!:
(Warren) “You might have heard that Donald Trump likes to call me ‘Pocahontas.’ He does it on Twitter, at rallies, and even in official White House meetings,” Warren wrote in a Monday fundraising email, calling it the “very worst of gutter politics.” In an email, Warren denounced the name as a “racist slur,” saying the president did so because “he thinks that he can bully me and shut me up. He thinks he can bully and silence anybody he wants.” She continued, “We’re not going to stop standing up for middle class families. We’re not going to stop standing up for consumers.” She added in a final push for financial support, “Let’s show Donald Trump that we’re sick of his racist slurs by getting to work to fight his agenda. Donald Trump can keep attacking my family – but I’m going to keep fighting for yours.”
Let’s understand this in context: she lied to Harvard claiming to be a member of a minority to fraudulently obtain a position at one of the nation’s most prestigious universities. By lying and ultimately getting that position that is reserved for a true minority person, she stole a high-paying position from a member of a minority! When confronted multiple times, she refuses to retract her claim or prove her claim with a DNA test. Her actions were white racism against minority Americans!
Nancy Pelosi. Where to begin! “We’ve got to pass the bill to find out what’s in the bill,” the then Speaker of the House told us in the ramping up of the passage of Obamacare. She as speaker pushed through the House the most expensive social bill of our lifetime without even reading the bill first as did 99% of the 535 members of Congress who voted for it. Remember the promises: “You can keep your doctor if you want;” “You can keep your insurance if you want;” “Family insurance premiums for a family of four will go down $2500 a year,” and on and on.
Regarding the recent rash of women coming out with claims of sexual misconduct against Congressman John Conyers, Roy Moore, Alabama Senatorial candidate, and former President Bill Clinton, she appeared on Meet the Press. During that interview she stood by her dogged defenses of credibly-accused rapist Bill Clinton, praised alleged sexual harasser John Conyers as an “icon,” and declined to say if he should resign, or whether she believes the three women alleging misconduct. She stopped short of damning Roy Moore saying the facts are not in yet.
When asked whether Minnesota Senator Al Franken should step down even after he apologized, she said, “His accusers have to accept an apology,” Pelosi said. “The victims have some say in all of this, as well. And that has happened in the past. People have accepted an apology, as is coming forth now that I see in the press.”
Hypocritical? Well, here’s her PREVIOUS position on those accused in such matters: Ten years ago in an interview, Pelosi said that any woman who makes a claim against a man for any type of untoward sexual action against her MUST be believed and action against the perpetrator must be taken immediately.
Americans are confused. I could spend hours listing the specifics of hypocritical statements and actions from members of Congress and others from D.C. There are so many that happen so frequently that no one knows when to believe anything we see or hear coming out of Washington. No doubt the political position of almost all those there are determined not on a day-by-day basis, but on a minute-by-minute basis. I can imagine Pelosi or Warren licking a finger and holding it up in the air to test which way the wind is blowing at that moment regarding any political issue being discussed. They each determine their position based on all applicable circumstances as they apply politically to them at that moment. And their position at that moment is NOT determined by any previous position they held. It’s only about political expediency.
There probably is no relief in sight. So as we watch and listen the various positions they take hourly in discussions about the really important governing actions about to be undertaken — Tax Reform, Debt Limit Increase, Spending Budget, Healthcare again — don’t lock-in on any position you hear a politician take as it being their “forever position.” Tomorrow when the air direction and temperature changes, so might their position.
Remember: “We must pass the bill so we can find out what’s in the bill.”
