In the opinion of this humble observer of the asylum we all have to live in, the devolution of the political parties and the government established by our constitution in America is nearly complete. The so-called two parties system of Democrats and Republicans has devolved into an amorphous group of what we might call “Politocrats”. The Politicorats pretend to stand for something they believe will encourage the uninformed tuned-out electorate to vote for them, but they are only interested in their own power, perks, and prestige.  So, in that sense, there is little noticeable difference in the two parties when they are in power. When they are out of power, however, they expend great energy and money to convince the electorate that everything wrong in the country is the fault of the party that is in power. Those contrived differences aside,they know that the way to increase their power, perks, and prestige is to make sure that they pass laws and regulations that increase the size and power of the central government (federal, state, or local); thereby, diminishing the power of the electorate. In today’s news there are two examples of the lack of difference between the Democrats and the Republicans; even after the People spoke out in the recent elections demanding change:

The GOP trying to pass spending bill before anyone has a chance to read it.

and

GOP Chairman: We Should Legislate That Not One Person Is Thrown Out or Deported.

This devolution process has been going on for a very long time. As one would suspect, the process has, out of necessity, created an ever bigger bureaucracy to manage the daily affairs of the ever growing government. It’s arguable today which group; the Politocrats or the Bureaucrats, has the most power. The trend seems clear. The Politocrats are becoming less relevent with each passing year. Soon, they will be left with only their perks. Their power will be a thing of the past. If polls are any indication, they have already lost their prestige.

At the top of the power food chain are those who act behind the curtains to manipulate governments around the world for their own gain. The own directly or indirect the majority of the world’s central banks and they use their great wealth and power often through NGO’s like the Ford Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation, the Tides Foundation, as well as influential think-tanks like the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) or the Trilateral Commission to manipulate the Poliocrats of the most important nations on the planet to pass laws and regulations under the guise of helping the less fortunate or to seemingly punish themselves (the rich). You’ll also find them behind and profiting most wars and financial crisis. Yet, after many decades of this game, they themselves come out as the only winners. Wealth and the power that goes with it inevitably is redistributed to them. For the purposes of this post, I’ll call them the Powercrats. The ultimate dream of the Powercrats is to take their model for controlling nations and apply it the world as a whole. Playing the “long game”, they are working eliminate borders and national sovereignty and establish a world government with a single financial/banking system based on a universal currency, which they will control. They were behind the establishment of entities like the United Nations, the International Monetary Fund, and the World Bank. They promote international trade agreements, in which “trade” is but a small part of the agreement really are: a control system. They push the UN’s Global Warming nonsense, the idea that the UN should control as the law of the sea, world justice systems, and the internet. One increment at a time, nations are giving up their power to these global entities.

What is it that the Powercrats want? They imply that they want a One World Order. Seriously? Since we serfs are losing all of our freedoms anyway, we should probably wish them much success. We should wish them success because what they are much more likely to end up with is One World in Chaos! In my humble opinion, order is the last thing they will achieve. They are in the process of creating a monster they will not be able to control. Just look around you. Do you see more order or more chaos in the nations they are currently manipulating?

I fear mankind will forever be his own worst enemy.

Well, that’s what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?

Little Lenin

“I personally prefer those who believe in God to those who believe they are God.” Burt Prelutsky

bea·dle·dom – a stupid or officious display or exercise of authority, as by petty officials. – Dictionary.com

An old song once asked, “How can we miss you if you never leave?”  And, given the Narcissist-In-Chief’s propensity for decree, he’s got many otherwise sober folk worried that he never will.  But even if he and the Mooch decide to obey the law for once, surrender a future of free golf and luxury vacations on the taxpayer’s dime, and instead glide off to a retirement village for old Reds, the damage has been done.

Obamas America… behind the scenes, [Obama’s] radically increasing the government’s reach. His tools aren’t laws or even executive orders — it’s thousands of new pages of new rules in the Federal Register, the nation’s official book of regulations, controlling everything from home finance to car deals to city zoning. An unelected, unappointed shadowy network of leftie advocates are rewriting these rules — posing a direct threat to Congress’ legislative authority. (‘Obama Makes Up His Own Rules’)

Obamas Shadowy NetworkRadical Islamists? We’ve got much more to fear from radical bureaucrats.

“This always confuses liberals, that conservatives like the military and don’t like the bureaucracy. That’s because the military has their guns pointed out and the bureaucracy has them pointed in.” – Grover Norquist

Career Bureaucrats Are Far Worse Than Our Elected Politicians

On the 15th of May, I wrote a post titled The Bureaucratic Swamp That Is D.C. (District of Corruption). It that post, I quoted from an article in the Washington Post by George Will who, in turn, used this quote from Christopher DeMuth (a Fellow of the Hudson Institute) at George Mason University:

Government power is increasingly concentrated in Washington, Washington power is increasingly concentrated in the executive branch, and executive-branch power is increasingly concentrated in agencies that are unconstrained by legislative control. Debt and regulation are, DeMuth discerns, “political kin”: Both are legitimate government functions, but both are now perverted to evade democratic accountability, which is a nuisance, and transparent taxation, which is politically dangerous.

My good friend and favorite satirist, Manhattan Infidel, left a comment saying: “it’s now the government of the bureaucrats, by the bureaucrats, for the bureaucrats“. I agree with him and I think both George Will and Christopher DeMuth do, as well. Now it appears the Johnathan Turley, the Shapiro professor of public interest law at George Washington University, also agrees. Professor Turley wrote an opinion piece for the Washington Post the other day, in which he reflects on what he calls the fourth branch of government.

The good professor starts out his article by voicing the same frustration we all felt last week listening to senior government officials up to the President  explaining how they knew nothing of what was going o in the government they are supposed to be managing for the general welfare of all Americans. His comment was:

Clearly, there was a degree of willful blindness in these claims. However, the suggestion that someone, even the president, is in control of today’s government may be an illusion.

He goes on to say:

The growing dominance of the federal government over the states has obscured more fundamental changes within the federal government itself: It is not just bigger, it is dangerously off kilter. Our carefully constructed system of checks and balances is being negated by the rise of a fourth branch, an administrative state of sprawling departments and agencies that govern with increasing autonomy and decreasing transparency. _ (Emphasis added)

Professor Turley cites that in 1790 the federal government had just 1000 non-military employees. Today it has 2,840,000 federal workers in 15 departments, 69 agencies and 383 non=military sub-agencies. Now please look at this excerpt:

This rulemaking comes with little accountability. It’s often impossible to know, absent a major scandal, whom to blame for rules that are abusive or nonsensical. Of course, agencies owe their creation and underlying legal authority to Congress, and Congress holds the purse strings. But Capitol Hill’s relatively small staff is incapable of exerting oversight on more than a small percentage of agency actions. And the threat of cutting funds is a blunt instrument to control a massive administrative state — like running a locomotive with an on/off switch.

The autonomy was magnified when the Supreme Court ruled in 1984 that agencies are entitled to heavy deference in their interpretations of laws. The court went even further this past week, ruling that agencies should get the same heavy deference in determining their own jurisdictions — a power that was previously believed to rest with Congress. In his dissent in Arlington v. FCC, Chief Justice John Roberts warned: “It would be a bit much to describe the result as ‘the very definition of tyranny,’ but the danger posed by the growing power of the administrative state cannot be dismissed.”

I’d say it is more like a locomotive without an off switch.  I highly recommend that you read the rest of what Professor Turley has to say on the subject. This why, dear friends, I said in my earlier post that you can’t fix a rotten egg. This why I do not believe our government can be fixed. When people talk about the Leviathan, it is not a euphemism. We could fill all three branches of government with right-wing conservatives and they could not kill this monster. They would need to fire the whole lot of bureaucrats and roll-back years worth of regulations and you know that is not going to happen. It would take a right-wing dictator to fix what is wrong in Washington and you know that isn’t going to happen either. The best we can do, in my opinion, is elect the most conservative people we can and slow the rotting process down.

Well, that’s what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?

Drakes Bay Oyster Company Killed by Bureaucratic Fiat

Share

Imagine that you run a business.  Also, imagine that the business had been in existence for nearly 100 years.  Then, imagine with the stroke of a pen, an unelected bureaucrat ended your likelihood.  I did happen, the Drakes Bay Oyster Company was killed off.   Moonbattery has a video describing the families plight, as well as the intentional lies used by the government to shut it down.

In the end, the government did close down the business. And, apparently, the government simply made up “evidence” to justify it.

I would also reinforce the point made by the scientist in the video. Once people think that the ends justify the means, all sorts of horrific things can happen.
