The Imperial Hypocrisy of the Liberal Elite.

“He that would make his own liberty secure, must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty, he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself.”
— Thomas Paine

“Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.”
— Benjamin Franklin



The staggering, tone-deaf, vomitus, rat-fucking hypocrisy of the liberal establishment and its elite cadres, has reached a new low.

Responding to the malignant troll firing the jackboot curious evil leprechaun, Jeff Sessions, former Obama cudgel, Eric Holder spoke from the mountain top and tweeted:

“Anyone who attempts to interfere with or obstruct the Mueller inquiry must be held accountable. This is a red line. We are a nation of laws and norms not subject to the self interested actions of one man.”

Perhaps, Holder should look in a mirror?

But why bother, as everyone knows, politicians never show a reflection and must sleep in the soil of their native land.

Holder’s tweet is of course linked to his Twitter page which shows the hollow man wrapping himself in the mantle of the morally bi-polar, secular saint of America’s liberal imagination, Jack Kennedy. Shown standing near the eternal flame at JFK’s memorial, Holder, like a proper courtesan, knows how to show some political leg. I’m tough, he’s saying, but honorable, like Jack but, have no doubt, it’s Bobby he’s thinking of as he too was once Attorney General. Which means that Holder is saying he’s one part gangster, and one part penitent. Of course where as Bobby grew to be the sort of person who, when asked, said his favorite philosopher was, Albert Camus, we assume if asked, Holder would say, Al Capone. Bobby of course knew he had sinned and sought redemption. Holder, displaying the ethics of a crack whore, seems unfazed by his moral gangrene.

And god knows he’s got things for which he should beg forgiveness.

He wont of course, because amid the wreckage, drifting along with the corpse of the rule of law and the moldy remains of the Bill of Rights, you can find Holder, as a tool of the Obama regime, standing up for the idea that “due process” does not necessarily mean that evidence will be reviewed by judges. In its place there will be “secret evidence” reviewed, secretly, by unnamed individuals, who will, authorize the execution of an American citizen, based on, whatever the fuck they say is evidence.

Here’s the utterly craven, feckless, piratical Holder explaining how, unlike Trump, his shit does not stink:

“Some have argued that the president is required to get permission from a federal court before taking action against a United States citizen who is a senior operational leader of Al Qaeda or associated forces. This is simply not accurate. “Due process” and “judicial process” are not one and the same, particularly when it comes to national security. The Constitution guarantees due process, not judicial process.”

The idea, such as it is, that due process is distinct from the participation of judges, is essentially a blank check for an imperial gangsterocracy in which, the corporate CEOS, like pagan kings, have the power of life or death. That everything that “proves” the guilt of a “senior operational leader of Al Qaeda” is secret, that there is no review by any other branch of the government, is prima facia evidence of a dictatorship and a fascist gang, playing a form of political Russian roulette, is of course not open for discussion or discussion in any meaningful way. With one spin of the chamber, Trump has the power to have American citizens executed. Another spin and a “liberal” like Obama, has the same power. That there is a through line connecting the corruption of the Obama regime, giving in to the blackmail of the military, the intelligence thugs and the goons left over from the Bush-Cheney junta, and Trump’s moral rot, is of course, not open for debate.

And soulless Borg drones like Holder, are either too stupid to see the irony or too sociopathic to care. That of course also applies to the rest of the holier than thou liberals. As a result, we have Trump soaking the shabby remains of the constitution in gasoline, while throwing matches at it, and here’s Holder, in his moral HAZMAT suit, to tell Trump he’s out of line.

There is one political party in America – the Imperial Party and it has two wings: the Fascist wing, and the other Fascist wing.



Here’s Holder on the justification for tyranny.

Here’s a link to his Twitter page:



Here’s another stellar liberal, Kamala Harris on the sanctity of the rule of law:

“This guy doesn’t take his job seriously or he doesn’t appreciate the significance of the job. It is a job that comes with an incredible amount of power, and it should be conducted with the highest level of integrity,” said Harris, who questioned Barr sharply during Wednesday’s committee hearing. “

  1. That is what partisans on either side don’t get. If not for Carter’s austerity politics, we wouldn’t have had the Reaganomics of starve the beast. And if not for that, we wouldn’t have had Clinton triangulation with tough-on-crime laws and corporate deregulation.

    Then if not for the rightward shift of the Democratic Party, there wouldn’t have been the stolen election of 2000 that led to the Patriot Act. If not for the Bush regime, Obama wouldn’t have followed that example. And if Obama hadn’t further extended unconstitutional executive powers, Trump wouldn’t be now in the position of causing so much damage.

    The back and forth between supposed lesser evils, as I keep pointing out, has continually led to greater evil for longer than I’ve been alive. When a Democrat takes back the White House, she (?) will simply inherit Trump’s precedent and push it further toward authoritarianism. When full fascism finally takes hold, it is as likely to be a Democratic dictator as the other forced choice, but it won’t make much difference either way.

    It’s so predictable as to almost be boring, were it not for the rumbling drone of anxiety in the background, slowly building up to a throbbing sense of terror of what is to come.

      Tracing it back to Carter is a key narrative – which of course doesn’t happen in the establishment media – total irresponsibility is their mantra while claiming to be righteous.

      Carter of course is contextualized by Nixon (1968 et al) as he positioned himself as an “outsider” which of course echoes the long tradition going back to Jackson which then gets repurposed by goons like Bannon.

      History is a bitch “ha ha.”

      but you’re right – the clockwork connections between all of them – the historical cause and effect.

      Holder is a toad – a complete slithering creature of the system Boring as you say yet full of looming anxiety.

      and giving it some thought after writing the post it occurred to me that Awlaki may not have even been the real target – just a pretext and that someone may have been with him who was the real target but who knows and that’s the whole point – executions based on “secret evidence” and saint Obama skates and Holder chirps about how he is thinking of running for president and the fucking liberals sort of cluck about the secrecy and then move on to the next topic.

      One could take my whole post about the Reichstag and position it solely around secret execution protocols as that is every bit as dangerous to an open constitutionally driven republic as setting fire to parliament or the Bill of Rights.

      1. The most harmful thing that Carter did was his social conservatism that fed into an economic conservatism. Unlike Nixon, he was able to soft-pedal his attack on the left such as his dislike of labor unions.

        He did this by bringing Evangelicalism into the White House, clearing a path for theocracy. Carter’s moral rhetoric was mutated into the religious right and it gave the Republicans the card they needed for a straight flush.

        Absolutely. Carter looks good in retrograde comparison but he was as you describe. He triangulated before Clinton made it public. He was outside but of the system, he was liberal but reactionary/theocratic. He was conservative but liberal in his tepid attacks on Pinochet and the Shah but through Brzezinski (who reported to his mentor Kissinger) set in motion what became Bin Laden and “Afghanistan” – and the collapse of the Soviet Union which of course begets Puntin Inc.

        “…the card they needed for a straight flush.”

        That’s the truth.

      3. What gets intentionally left out of the 1960s narrative is that it was the time not only the rise of the mass surveillance and incarceration state but also the rise of a new conservative movement: Goldwater and Reagan, religious right and Young Republicans. It is the origin story of the political right. But they downplay this by making it out to be the attack by the political left, as if the political right was just minding its own business until then.

        Yes! My post: Why so Dark, The Paranoid Style and the X Files takes the liberal narrative and inverts it. The liberals are selling the idea that Goldwater/Birch Society paranoia is an inauthentic freak show but what they leave out is that it was the era of vast secret government experiment programs and the fervor of the definitely crazy right wing was generated not by the left but by the right provoking public right wing lunes like Goldwater and of course Nixon and Reagan who of course was on the FBI payroll and an informant.

        I don’t think he’s a good writer but James Elroy’s Blood’s a Rover and the Cold Six thousand are excellent sociological pieces about the how the sausage got made truth of the era and how it laid the foundations for the current circular firing squad.
