Adamo: Democrat 'Damage Control' Has Become An Embarrassment

By Christopher G. Adamo

Overall, it is probably a good thing that Nancy Pelosi not only stays in the U.S. Congress, but as Minority Leader retains the highest Democrat position in that body. As a result, she remains sufficiently prominent for the nation to be continually reminded of how bad things in Washington can really get if Americans do not stay vigilant and engaged in the electoral process, in order to keep such mindless leftists in the minority. Last week, she inarguably made this case once again.

Of course Pelosi is already well known for her absurd commentary and abhorrent actions. It was Nancy Pelosi who, as House Speaker, did her best to incite unseemly behavior from Tea Party protestors as she strode arrogantly among them, wielding a buffoonishly large gavel, on the way to passing Obamacare in the House of Representatives. It was also Pelosi who revealed just how out of touch and brimming with arrogance she and her liberal cohorts are, when she informed the nation Obamacare would first need to be passed into law before anyone could find out what was in it. In the cruelest joke of all, Nancy promised in November of 2006 that as speaker she would preside over “the most honest, most open, and most ethical Congress in history.”

It might seem difficult to exceed such absurdities, but Pelosi has proven that she is up to the task. As the House Oversight committee moved towards a contempt of Congress citation against Attorney General Eric Holder on account of his continued refusal to cooperate with the congressional investigation of the disastrous “Fast and Furious” affair, Pelosi decided to turn the situation back on Republicans. In a move that some liberal strategist must have presumed to be a brilliant strategy, Pelosi offered a ridiculous explanation of the unfolding situation at a June 21 press briefing, asserting that the contempt charge was merely a vindictive ruse directed at Holder, as retribution for his determination to oppose Florida voter identification efforts.

From the very beginning, Eric Holder’s conduct as Attorney General has been a national disgrace, and an abomination to the rule of law. He is perhaps best known for his willingness to sanction the criminal bullying of white voters by members of the “New Black Panthers” in Philadelphia on Election Day 2008. He subsequently engaged in similar betrayals of his office, including the complete undermining of the state of Arizona as it endeavored to secure its southern border against the flood of illegal aliens. More recently, he actively opposed Florida measures designed to properly verify voter identification, in order to prevent fraud at the polls.

Of course Democrats regularly turn a blind eye to corrupt doings of this nature, as long as the end result is beneficial to the their party. The resulting deterioration of life in America is dismissed as mere “collateral damage,” and is wholly acceptable to the left on that basis. In this manner, though “Fast and Furious” cost hundreds of Mexicans their lives, along with U.S. border agent Brian Terry, the Obama Administration had no problem allowing it to continue. Unfortunately for Democrats, word of the “Fast and Furious” debacle eventually leaked, and has lingered for quite some time on the public stage. As a result, the horrendous malfeasance of its original premise (allowing guns into the hands of Mexican drug cartels so they could ostensibly be tracked) has become a political liability to the left, and the Obama Administration in particular.

Eventually, as the inquiries have dragged on, the knowledge of its ugly reality has continued to be more widely known among the American people. It has become apparent that the real intention of “Fast and Furious” was to get guns into the hands of lawless Mexicans, so as to proliferate gun-violence and havoc among the gangs that operate south and north of the border (since other Obama/Holder initiatives have rendered that boundary nearly nonexistent). Apparently, the hope was that Americans would eventually have their fill of all the mayhem and bloodshed, and at that point they might be more amenable to the abolition of the Second Amendment.

Consequently, the whole fiasco became a huge public relations liability to Holder and the Obama Administration. It is absurdly naive to believe that under such circumstances, they would “come clean.” Every effort by the Republican Congress to get to the bottom of the scandal has been met with stonewalling, evasions, outright lies and a willful obstruction of justice. Once the congressional committee moved towards a contempt citation against Holder, Barack Obama made himself complicit in all of it by claiming “executive privilege” on Holder’s behalf.

So of course, in light of this flagrant trail of corruption, the only reason for law-abiding citizens to become concerned about this enormous breach of the law, perpetrated by the nation’s top law enforcement official, would be partisan politics and a personal animus towards Holder (read: racism). This nauseating appraisal is the essence of Nancy Pelosi’s diatribe.

In truth, her transparent finger-pointing is a glaring illustration of the complete scorn she and her kind have towards all Americans, but especially their own constituencies. Pelosi, Obama, and every liberal who seeks to deflect attention from the “Fast and Furious” debacle by dredging up all of the old adages of racial discord and making them the central issues of the day, do so out of a consuming contempt for the intelligence and reasoning abilities of the voting base. Simply wave the race card and your minions will begin mindlessly repeating any accusations of unfairness and inequality that have been fed to them.

Never mind the extensive suffering going on around them as a direct consequence of the liberal agenda. For the black community, it is an atrocious public education bureaucracy that leaves their children ill-prepared to seek worthwhile livelihoods as adults, and a national economy that has resulted in black unemployment of unprecedented proportions. Down along the border, it is the cold-hearted indifference to the murderous rampages enabled by those “Fast and Furious” guns, that give the best indication of just how truly concerned the Obama Administration is about the plight of Mexicans and Americans of Mexican descent.

Nevertheless, the lies and race-baiting continue, and whenever Democrats are caught red-handed in criminally irresponsible activity such as “Fast and Furious,” they have no recourse but to revert to their well-rehearsed lines. They are convinced that their support base must surely be blind and gullible enough to accept their word rather than considering the facts. But for the sake of the nation, and all its good citizens of every ethnicity and nationality, it is time to wake up and recognize the liberal/Democrat political machine for the abomination that it really is, and the danger its policies pose to all Americans.

    If Eric Holder is counting on Pelosi or Obama to cover his six, he will prove to be a fool and one more socialist sacrificed useful idiot, thrown under the bus to protect the supreme party leaders. This Stonewaller will end up like the Stonewall Jackson of the real war between the states. He was shot by his own men who failed to identify him like we are now unable to identify real voters thanks to Holder, Obama and Pelosi. The Great Stonewall died in bed of pneumonia with a left arm half shot off and a poor uneducated healthcare organization. After he died General Lee stated that Jackson had lost his left arm, and he had lost his right. Thus happens to all who rely on the weakness of the left,,,and ignore the strength of the right.

    These things are only pertinent to those who still have the ability to actually see then process what they see via intelligent and independent thought. Unfortunately there are so many out there whose vision and hearing are completely obscured by dollar signs and what the government has promised to give them that no one even notices the total lack of common sense and intelligence. I don’t think it really matters just how bizzare these so called leaders become because a large part of the population just doesn’t care.

    And considering Obama’s 53% win in ’08, they may be correct. I have no confidence that the percentage of idiots in our electorate has lessened, I just hope that more of them stay home on Nov 6 and that more of us vote.

    You have really hit on the fundamental problem with our so called democratic system in that a large segment of our voting public pay little, if any, attention to what is actually happening politically in our country. The MSM refuses to cover the scandals in this administration, like Fast and Furious and the recent classified security leaks coming from the Whitehouse, so many hard working Americans just do not know what is going on and cannot be counted on to vote accordingly. This is especially true with our younger population who have been brainwashed by socialist teachers and professors and are not getting enough balanced information to actually be counted on to help throw out these radicals we have in office.

    I live in California which is a precursor to where Obama is taking us at the federal level. The State of California has been under the control of liberals for 40 years and the Libs have finally overcome the rational approach to governing, established by the conservatives who settled California and created the once great state it used to be, and have managed to convert the State into the failure it has become. It has been sad to watch as conservatives in California have been disenfranchised and no longer have any influence over politics in the state, much like Obama is hellbent to do in Washington.

    The far left liberals who have taken control of the Democratic party has nailed down California, has the states of New York, Washington, Oregon, and other “Blue” states that have a lot of electoral votes pretty much locked in for November. They will nominate a Hispanic or another African American for President after Obama. They only care about control and will “use” anybody, whether they really care about them or not, to stay in office and control of the states and the federal government.

    Scary stuff…but the way it is. The America we have loved and enjoyed is being transformed right in front of our eyes into just another “socialist” country controlled by a huge government. We are the “surfs” who carry the water for the “royalty” entrenched in the dictatorship.

    The only way to stop this is through election or revolution, and I just think too many Americans, especially those on the dole are just going to roll over and flip the channel on their taxpayer provided HDTV or call someone on their taxpayer funded free Obamaphone. Apathy seems too prevalent. I hope that I am wrong.

      “Simply wave the race card and your minions will begin mindlessly repeating any accusations of unfairness and inequality that have been fed to them.”

      The Democrats know that waving the race card is the best way to silence the opposition because no one wants to be identified as a racist and no one can defend against the accusation. But they have carried it too far and are on the verge of starting another civil war, yet they are either too stupid to realize it or that is what they are trying to do.

      I honestly do not believe Obama intends to give up the White House. He will use the race card, fraudulent votes, and blatant violations of federal law to assure his re-election.

    Bela Pelosi’s mouth and logic is one of the conservatives best weapons against progressivism. I continually equate her statements with the Three Stooge’s line from Moe Howard to his brother Curly “Every time you open your mouth, you weaken the Nation”.
    The progressive arm of the Democratic party seems to have the idea that they are infallible. This arm is becoming more pervasive, very much like a cancer that will destroy the host.

    I think we need to place additional minimum qualification standards on congressional candidates. Those standards should include having an IQ level above 100 and passing a psychological exam to weed out those with mental disorders.
