PART 1. I do not rise in defense of Scott Tipton. I view politics, especially so-called duopoly (Democrat versus Republican) politics — which is person/group A trying to get person/group B to obey the will of A — as little more than a too-close-for-comfort relative of asinine high school homeroom popularity contests. Unfortunately there are a couple of inescapable political truisms (the second already noted by Spehar): 1) those who refuse to get involved in politics are destined to be ruled by their inferiors, and 2) you can’t beat somebody with nobody. Therefore I rise to point out the flaws in Jim Spehar’s typically manipulative “leftist” style of political communication.
Since so-called “leftists” or “liberals” are generally logic-and-ammunition-challenged in the war of real ideas, they almost inevitably resort to cleverly coded forms of speech designed to camouflage blatant ad hominem fallacies in ways subtle enough they hope the reader won’t recognize them for what they are.
In the case of his latest column, I refer to phrases such as, “the Republican ‘brand’ has declined significantly because of … obstinacy,” “the House GOP line,” “a competitive candidate,” “toe the far right Tea Party line,” “the negative image of those who prefer political posturing over actual governing,” “regurgitate conservative talking points,” or “seek bipartisan compromise,” ad infinitum. All that is missing are such brilliant leftist inventions as “for the children,” “doom and gloomers,” “birthers,” “truthers” and “tinfoil hat wearers,” ad infinitum.
All this blather in support of the self-evidently unsustainable fraud best known by the euphemism “Obamacare” which Scott Tipton seems to be too involved in party politics to oppose with as much determination and vigor as humanly possible. So he’s lost votes.
Now lets add a bit context to all this giddy frivolity of language. Decades ago the United States suffered a coup d’état by global debt-as-money scammers against the U.S. Constitution which is now de facto dead. That’s why police-state “law” enforcement officers are free to kill innocent people in warrantless, wrong-address no-knock raids without consequence. That’s why the NSA is spying on everybody. Your average duopoly political hack such as Jim Spehar (or you fill in the blank) couldn’t care less. Most of them are all about being cutesy and clever and winning elections and attaining inherently evil and inevitably corrupting One-Ring government power so they and their cronies can make money off of the clueless taxpayers. That’s why you see millions of dollars being spent on projects which the voters turned down.

PART 2. In his 1946 essay, “Politics and the English Language,” George Orwell said, “The great enemy of clear language is insincerity. When there is a gap between one’s real and one’s declared aims, one turns as it were instinctively to long words and exhausted idioms, like a cuttlefish spurting out ink. In our age there is no such thing as ‘keeping out of politics.’ All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred, and schizophrenia.”
So, now, let me see if I have this right. There’s NSA, 9-11, JFK (80% of Americans don’t believe the government’s story), RFK, MLK, TWA800, OKC, the battleship U.S.S. Maine, Pearl Harbor, Gulf of Tonkin, endless other “false flag” operations, Waco, Ruby Ridge, $1.5 quadrillion in phony derivatives, $120+ trillion in unfunded liabilities, $17+ trillion in fraudulent national debt, “QE Infinity” among countless other examples — plus there is an ongoing global currency war in which 80% bail-in “haircuts” and $50,000/oz gold are on the horizon, but Spehar et ilk are going to use cutesy coded language to entertain us local yokels.
“A competitive candidate” means one who is willing to play footsy with the global criminal debt-as-money cabal. “Toe the far right Tea Party line,” “the negative image of those who prefer political posturing over actual governing,” and “regurgitate conservative talking points” mean anybody who happens to disagree with Spehar’s world view and/or political and economic agenda/s. “Seek bipartisan compromise” and “actual governing” mean conspiring with corrupt and intellectually dishonest duopoly cronies to rob the clueless and gullible freebie-addicted taxpayers. How wonderfully articulate and enlightening.
For any person who wants to understand what is going on, I highly recommend watching Greg Hunter’s excellent interview with world-class economist, investor and gold expert Jim Sinclair at http://bit.ly/17w4Nhx and http://www.jsmineset.com. I also highly recommend reading George Orwell’s 1946 Essay, “Politics and the English Language” at https://www.mtholyoke.edu/acad/intrel/orwell46.htm.
