"The words of a man's mouth are deep waters,
but the fountain of wisdom is a babbling brook.
It is not good to be partial to the wicked
or to deprive the innocent of justice.
A fool's lips bring him strife,
and his mouth invites a beating.
A fool's mouth is his undoing,
and his lips are a snare to his soul.
The words of a gossip are like choice morsels;
they go down to a man's inmost parts."
Written by King Solomon,
sometime during his reign (c. 970-931 B.C.)
acquiring dirt is a cheap way to get ahead in life; and yet, go figure, it's precisely this kind of luscious morsel, this little nugget of debauchery or shadiness back behind the man, that supplies the sustenance of nearly all political campaigns.
finding dirt, amassing dirt, building dirt into a mountain of garbage --
whether it's source comes via foreign or domestic hybrids, having grown from devious seeds --
runs counter to who we are as a people of character, both individually and collectively (no pun there).
What's more, bonafide media outlets -- purveyors of all things news worthy and pertinent to the American people -- have done nothing more than disparage themselves and the business they are in by continuing to dispense ridiculous, hypocritical, politically motivated, run of the mill, gossip.
It's a pathetic waste, and I mean waste, of precious time and energy.
Point of fact -- the DNC provided their own dirt, organically, from within their own organization! Such is the case, of the leaks of John Podesta's email communications between the powers that be. Who cares where it came from, or who unearthed it! It doesn't matter when the truth is, these words spoken between trusted confidants in the middle of a presidential campaign were actually SAID. The sad reality is, the sentiment and messages between multiple DNC upper echelon, were words spoken, and not only that, they display exactly their motivations -- getting Bernie out, among many other things... SEE a nice list of 18 revelations from Wikileaks, here (thank you, BBC News)....Dated October 27, 2016, by the way.
oh, what have we got here....oooooh here's a morsel now:
In excerpts from one of Mrs Clinton's paid speeches to Wall Street bankers, she said: "Politics is like sausage being made. It is unsavory, and it always has been that way, but we usually end up where we need to be.
"But if everybody's watching, you know, all of the back room discussions and the deals, you know, then people get a little nervous, to say the least. So, you need both a public and a private position."
OOOOOOh and here's another tidbit, and this one courtesy of Paul Bedard at The Washington Examiner, January 12, 2017:
So 412,000 dollars later...
The lengthy investigative report, which described Ukraine as concerned that Trump would favor Russia if he won, said that the effort was coordinated with the Clinton campaign, raising questions of foreign involvement similar to the charges that Russia worked to help Trump.
"Donald Trump wasn't the only presidential candidate whose campaign was boosted by officials of a former Soviet bloc country," said the Politico investigation...
It said that she [Alexandra Chalupa] pushed information about Trump's former campaign chief Paul Manafort to reporters including Yahoo. Manafort was replaced by Trump amid concerns about his work for Ukraine's former leader, Viktor Yanukovych.
In that Politico investigation post, linked above: "[the] investigation found evidence of Ukrainian government involvement in the race that appears to strain diplomatic protocol dictating that governments refrain from engaging in one another’s elections." Translation: and it's not the Trump camp.
real evidence found, huh.
Oh, and just who is this Chalupa? Politico answers:
A daughter of Ukrainian immigrants who maintains strong ties to the Ukrainian-American diaspora and the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine, Chalupa, a lawyer by training, in 2014 was doing pro bono work for another client interested in the Ukrainian crisis and began researching Manafort’s role in Yanukovych’s rise, as well as his ties to the pro-Russian oligarchs who funded Yanukovych’s political party.oh okay. that's going in the good to know pile.
Returning to the piece by the BBC,
Here's one for compiling that which concerns....speaking out of both sides of the mouth:
and another:"In a leaked 2013 paid speech to the Jewish United Fund of Metropolitan Chicago, Mrs Clinton said that Jordan and Turkey "can't possibly vet all those refugees so they don't know if, you know, jihadists are coming in along with legitimate refugees".
Of course, there is this little bocado hermosa (beautiful morsel), via Eddie Scarry of The Washington Examiner:"In May 2015 Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook pointed to a report that the Clinton Foundation had received money from one of the project's backers, emailing that "the enviros may latch onto this going forward. Have we discussed when she will come out against Keystone?"He also asks if they should wait until after President Obama vetoes the pipeline, which he did in November 2015. Mrs Clinton announced her opposition in September.
Media yawn at Podesta's 'needy Latinos' emailya see how the media picks and chooses it's dirt?
Clearly, the main stream media [that which is aggregated daily, agriculturally speaking, to be a compound of 80% liberal -- and of those, an astounding 99.9% hypocrite, and hellbent upon using the medium of manure shoveling and leftist groveling, feeding one another the same slop over and over again, like pot belly pigs] is uber selective.
The THING IS --
with regards to Don Jr. --
if all we have is a twenty minute meeting to nowhere -- serving up the same sh*t, whether foreign or domestic, as the Clinton Campaign when colluding day and night with the DNC --- then what is there to talk about?
DO WE REALLY HAVE TO KEEP PILING ON THIS REALITY?
NOT ONE VOTE WAS CHANGED!
President Donald John Trump is our president, fair and square -- no matter how dirty the shirtsleeves.
Colluding with Russia -- hmmmmm -- what have we got.....ummmmm nothing with regards to DJT.
And it's funny, the left winged mainstream media wasn't all that upset when a sitting president actually said via an open mic to a real Russian, just six months before the 2012 elections, this little tidbit from Daniel Halper of The Weekly Standard:
President Obama: "On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved but it’s important for him to give me space."
President Medvedev: "Yeah, I understand. I understand your message about space. Space for you…"
President Obama: "This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility."
President Medvedev: "I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir, and I stand with you."what?
you're gonna relay to Vladimir Putin, the Vladimir Putin, that you just had a little conversation with the American president, and that Obama asked Russia to wait until after the election...assuming he would be re-elected, thereby paving the way for all you guys to collude once again, right where you all left off?
oh those pesky, needy, dirty, lousy Russians
Here's a final read for you, for today anyway; it comes via CNN -- but of course, it also comes with an editorial disclaimer that goes like this: "Jeffrey Lord is a CNN political commentator. Previously, he served in the Reagan administration as a White House political adviser. The views expressed in this commentary are his own. For a counter perspective, read Doug Elmets' analysis." And yes, even Doug gets the same disclaimer -- but when something IS commentary, doesn't that mean, by definition, it is someone's opinion in the first place? And further, if actual news stories are told through a liberal bias, shouldn't that also come with full disclosure, too? As in, "Good Evening, I'm Jim Acosta, and I'm a liberal, and here is the evening's liberal news..." oh but I digress. literally and figuratively.
Back to the final read, for it is good. HERE it is.
And besides, even President Obama told Trump to "stop whining" about Russia interfering with the election...remember this? “You start whining before the game’s even over?” Obama said at a press conference. “Then you don’t have what it takes to be in this job.”
And just why was Obama so bold to say all of this, like the arrogant little piss-ant he was, crawling up the side of the eastern palisade of dirt upon dirt like he was king of the mountain? For like everyone else in the country, HE thought Hillary was going to win; HE felt emboldened to kill this dirty narrative likity-split in order to pave the way for HER eminence, Hillary Clinton, to BULLdoze her way back into D.C. all over again.
You know, I've heard, "it is not good to be partial to the wicked or to deprive the innocent of justice."
Fake dossier, anyone. See Circa. See Circa.
oh "the words of a gossip are like choice morsels; they go down to a man's inmost parts." And then come out his buttocks right on cue.
The news of Russian interference with the 2016 election, as well as the lack of evidence of collusion, let alone any vote being altered or changed or added or subtracted anywhere from sea to shining sea because of it, should justifiably be reduced to trash; we might as well stock it up to being nothing more than a pile of garbage, and immediately set it on fire, sending it in the direction that all election dirt belongs, up in smoke.
Every campaign gets dirt.
Every campaign is at risk of behaving badly to get dirt.
Every campaign considers getting good dirt on the opponent to be as valuable an effort as panning for gold. That kind of nugget is worth traveling the miles, weathering the snowstorms and all the hills and valleys such aspirations may bring; just ask those who made it all the way to California during the Gold Rush.
Show me a campaign as pure as the driven snow and this girl will still show you a drift -- whether it be of something high or something low, whether its from lands far, far away or la la land. The innocent snowflake begins to collect, and with just the right amount of ill begotten wind, slowly each one is carried away until the wee little snowflake becomes a mighty, impenetrable, abominable snow drift.
Adrift is adrift is a drift; and like gossip, it is collaborative, collective, and contagious in thought, word and deed -- one globs together with another, and then another, and then another. And so on.
Gossip is not good; it is not news; it is the pure pillaging of fresh unfettered grounds -- taking a plot potentially nutrient abundant, of sound roots, and full of righteous aspirations -- and rototiller-ing the hell out of it; then, spreading seeds of corruption, contempt and carousal, fully ripe for contaminating the land for as far as the eye can see, and beyond, as we slowly replace living from a place of wisdom with wretchedness.
And this culture of ours -- it not only digs dirt right about now, it thrives on it.
Look in the mirror and see for yourself.
It's on your face, as well as on mine; if we're not throwing dirt back and forth, it doesn't make it to the Drudge Report, right? And just look at me -- of all absurdities -- aiming to measure it here on the old G Thing upon any given day.
Here's a riddle: which comes first, the person or the politics?
Oh it's neither here nor there.
We spend so much of our time talking about things that don't matter, spending less time talking of things that do matter, that in the meantime, we bury ourselves in piles and piles of dirt.
It's a dirty preoccupation.
It's so much on some days, we don't even realize the stench in the air, making it nearly impossible to breathe.
Who knew rarefied air would become more valuable than gold...
Make it a Good Day, G
