Jeff Goldstein at Protein Wisdom is always brilliant but he outdoes himself in a remarkable post where he explains just how ominous for the Republic the Benghazi scandal is:

I have very little I wish to say today, so sick to my stomach am I from hearing yesterday’s testimony on Benghazi, wherein career civil servants were very obviously, and oftentimes visibly, working to restrain their anger, outrage, and outright disbelief at what their own government had done (and hadn’t done) to secure the lives of Americans.

In short, the subtext of yesterday’s testimony was precisely this:  it does matter.  And those Democrats who have spent the last 24 hours trying to dismiss or diminish or deflect the testimony as a non-story — a tack that the mainstream press has aided them with, failing for the most part to even mention the hearings, much less provide any in-depth coverage of the revelations, save for the occasional story informing us that there were no revelations — are no better than any third-world goosestepping apparatchik whose job it is to provide cover for a Dear Leader.

They sicken me in a way I cannot even put into words — and that’s saying something, given my occasionally-documented facility with the language.  These people are monsters of a sort, but even that appellation can do their rank cynicism and their easy disregard for conscience no real justice.

And the media, without doubt co-conspirators in what is a major scandal — and an even more major cover-up — are so committed to progressive activism, and to their own self-styled righteousness and compassion (which, relying on a surreal tautology and the anti-foundationalism at the heart of their ideology, they presume to claim is a function of their progressivism: they are good, so therefore what they do is good; and what they do is good because it’s being done by good people), that they have found a way to convince themselves that their biases, be it by omission or by massaging of the facts to report that there’s nothing new to report, are somehow noble and are in the service of a Greater Good.

Go here to read the brilliant rest.  The incompetence and sheer malevolence of the gang that currently rules our nation is breathtaking.  They are at war with the traditions of our nation and they have only contempt for the truth if lies are necessary to keep them in power.  However that is not what is ominous.  What is truly ominous is that so many Americans support these mendacious thugs and willingly parrot talking points fed to them by leftist websites, even as the nation careens from debacle to debacle and shame to shame.  Goldstein says it all:

I am embarrassed.  I am ashamed that I haven’t done more to pressure these bastards into telling the truth, just as I’m ashamed that I haven’t been more effective in spreading the word far and wide that we are being ruled at this very moment by a syndicate of sorts, a ruling class and its messaging apparatus that has the power and the will to silence and punish witnesses who would dare to challenge it, who will first and foremost consider political calculations when deciding upon the fate of embattled Americans under siege in a hostile environment, and who will with no remorse or second thoughts scapegoat, lie, and even spend tax money apologizing to our enemies for the lie that they themselves have concocted.

I feel sick. Literally.

  1. If I have difficulty trying to understand why the Obama gang are continually let off the hook for their ineptocratic government, it must be soooo frustrating for all good Americans who are seeing their great country go down the gurgler – no wonder some states are muttering secession, and your average American is buying extra guns. From where I look, they are totally justified.

  2. Fasts and Furious then Benghazi, for far less they pilloried Nixon as if he was the only politician who ever lied. We’ll see if this all theatre if and when the indictments come. Obama of course could not care about the fallout from Benghazi, as it has Hillary’s paw all over it.

  3. We all know that if the exact same circumstances had occurred during the administration of George W Bush – the murder of a US Ambassador while on post in a foreign country – the media, and Democratic Party, and the Left would not let the matter rest until they had done maximum damage to Bush and to the Republican Party.

    If the US Secretary of State under a Republican administration had provided the same account of events, and the congressional testimony that Hillary Clinton has, the media, the Democratic Party, and the Left would be relentless in driving that Secretary from office.

    The double standard in the MSM is breathtaking.

  4. I hope Jeff Goldstein gets well. He describes a malaise that is rampant in the citizens who want to remain within the foundations of the US. It’s something that is intended by those lemmings to thoroughly weaken the un-indoctrinated by issuing detriments to historically sound traditions, such as virtue, courage, marriage, family, children, elderly, education, Boy Scouts, religion, the military, the flag, decency, modesty, objectivity of journalist and judges, language, the golden rule ‘n stuff. Doses of inhumanity for one and all in every area of life.

    Antidote: Humanity and dignity, striving for purity of soul by remembering to cooperate with God’s help – described so well in the Bible.

    Don’t know if there are enough lawyers, sources of money, journalists, or others with humanity to correct the falsehoods and the inhumanity of the powers that be.

    I heard Fr. Wade Menezes say in his sermon today on EWTN that if he were asked to say in a sentence what is wrong with the culture, he would say that the culture no longer recognizes sin. It speaks of evil, but not sin because sin would imply a sound morality and trample on the moral relativism (that is sickening).

    Could word political parties differently …
    D’s to A’s as AntiFoundationials, building wreckers,
    R’s to F’s as Foundationals, builders.
