But Don´t Rule Out Malice
American Thinker, by Ryan Scott Welch

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 2/17/2013 10:33:39 AM

There is an adage that reads "never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity... but don´t rule out malice." This is known as Heinlein´s or Hanlon´s Razor (there is only a slight difference between the two). Unfortunately many people only go by the first part of Heinlein´s Razor, leaving out the "but don´t rule out malice" part. People using this heuristic decision-making shortcut often think that even though some things that people do seem very suspect, and even though mental red flags are going up and instinctive alarms are sounding

Should be a Must Read. But it requires reading the whole thing. The last paragraph really sums it up and describes someone we have come to know well. Him and Alinsky, who preached that gradual change would not work. A total teardown of our institutions had to be achieved first so that revolution could take place.

There is malice and then there is sheer evil. That´s the road we have progressed on from 2008 to 2012. Malice was obvious from 2008, but effort was made to cover or mask evil. Now that pretense is being dropped. What 2016 will bring, god only knows.

Leftists prey upon the patience and fairness of conservatives. Add in the fear of being labeled as a racist and the leftists get a free pass on everything.

Everything.

It´s worth noting that those on the left attribute all conservative ideas to malice without bothering to even consider their merits.

Having and pursuing an ideological agenda is neither malice nor evil. It very well could be stupidity.

Pursuing an ideological agenda against the will of the people, using every means and effort to manipulate, lie and coerce certainly is evil.

The Dim agenda is simple. We know what is best and you will like it. We will stop at nothing to achieve it. The GOP agenda is to try and stop the Dims without stooping to their level of malevolence and malfeasance.

A noble objective if the voters vote. The problem in America is that many of the people who can stop this nonsense are sitting on the sidelines because the solutions are not perfect. Good is NOT the enemy of perfect.

If and until the majority of Americans who disagree with the evil and malice of the Dims do not step forward and vote - this will continue until there is no way to change it.

All who can see what is going on needs to be recruiting others to the cause. Otherwise, the end result is inevitable.

From an article on Obama, the Democrats and Alinsky that was published in May, 2008:

In the Alinsky model, “organizing” is a euphemism for “revolution”—a wholesale revolution whose ultimate objective is the systematic acquisition of power by a purportedly oppressed segment of the population, and the radical transformation of America’s social and economic structure. The goal is to foment enough public discontent, moral confusion, and outright chaos to spark the social upheaval that Marx, Engels, and Lenin predicted—a revolution whose foot soldiers view the status quo as fatally flawed and wholly unworthy of salvation. Thus, the theory goes, the people will settle for nothing less than that status quo’s complete collapse—to be followed by the erection of an entirely new and different system upon its ruins. Toward that end, they will be apt to follow the lead of charismatic radical organizers who project an aura of confidence and vision, and who profess to clearly understand what types of societal “changes” are needed.

Revolution. "The status-quo´s complete collapse. "Charismatic radical organizers who project an aura of confidence and vision". Sound familiar?

Here, let me make it utterly simple by posing "Planetgeo´s Razor": If the decision was made by a leftist/progressive, it is by definition with malice and with the intent to weaken and diminish the United States and those who strive to enrich and strengthen it.

Near the end of the article when he talks about women being able to serve in all areas of the military, he uses the term "required". Is this a fact? It´s now "required"? Because I was under the impression that these areas were now simply "open" whereas women had previously been barred from those roles.

My thought has always been that women should be able to serve in any capacity they can qualify for. I know the social aspects are a challenge and I understand that. But if someone can physically do the job and has the temerity to tackle it, I call that person an asset to be used in the cause.

Considering neither males nor females are safe from rapists and torturers within our current enemy corps, even that has been equalized.

The dangerous part of this adage is that, to the Left, what they´re doing is not malicious. On the contrary--they believe what they´re doing is for our own good. Of course, they will couch their language in good-feeling platitudes (e.g. "we need to ban assault weapons for the sake of our children", "who doesn´t want to save our environment", "there´s a scientific consensus", "we need to protect our mothers´ and daughters´ health", etc.) They also understand that if they came out and said precisely what they are for (e.g. higher taxes for all, abortion-on-demand, the banning of all firearms, etc.), no one would purchase what they´re selling. So they have to lie. Their lies are intentional, and to us, they are malicious. But to the Left, their lies are for our own good.

Traditional American values based on capitalism and Judeo Christian principles have done more to improve the state of man than any other system EVER.
Communism / Socialism / Marxism, or whatever you want to call it is inherently EVIL.
This was common knowledge 50 years ago.
The left is simply doing the work of the devil.
Nothing more, nothing less.

For the leftists who are in power, I don´t believe that they believe they are doing anything for the good of anyone but themselves. For them, it´s all about power and control and who cares about the consequences.

As to tearing down our institutions, as of now most of those institutions are overrun with leftist power mongers. Maybe the revolution that the left anticipates will not be what actually happens. It´s long past time for them to reap the whirlwind.

2) lunacy at the FED
3) lending mandates from Andrew Cuomo´s HUD
and
4) really bad legislation in Sarbanes Oxley (mandatory Mark-to-Market provisions)

The banking meltdown of 2008 certainly looks like it was engineered in Washington. Just way to many coincidences to be bad luck.

I think that I would have to agree with the author. There is just far too much happening in this country to attribute it to bad luck or stupidity. It has to be planned. And the major problem is, that the siren song of marxism, socialism, or whatever ism you chose to call it, is very appealing to those on the low rungs of the socio-economic ladder. They all want the government to take care of them at the expense of "the rich". And they don´t have any knowledge of the horrendous failures of all of these isms throught history. And yet the will vote for them every time.

The beauty of the article is that the reader is making a mental list of all the demonstrations of malice that have been witnessed in the last 6 years. Then the choice of women being required to be represented in all combat roles is such a perfect example because there has been zero grass roots agitation for this. An earlier example in exactly the same vein is bringing back the draft. I think of these folks as ´fellow travelers´ associate them in my mind with the walking dude from Stephen King´s The Stand.

Every past attempt to make this communistic ideology work was beneficial only to the very top tier, until the whole thing grew so top heavy it collapsed. Sad to say, it was the millions who lost their liberty, possessions and lives who paid the price.
But in the case of America, it is becoming clearer that those pushing us over this cliff will also pay an awful price, as there are puppet masters behind the curtain, on the world stage who will throw the complicit in with the downtrodden.

The standard-bearer of the movement hell-bent on taking over everything we Americans have held dear for well over two centuries is His Glib Nibs, BHO. Over the past four years, it’s become frighteningly obvious that what they worship more than anything at all is power. Power at ANY cost! Nothing trumps it. They will do anything to achieve it and likewise to retain it. Furthermore, they count on a broad cross-section of our citizenry to be and remain ignorant of what is taking place in what is still our nation. That the preponderance of our media is in lockstep with them renders a no-contest outcome virtually assured. When was the last time we heard “journalists” assertively query, and follow-up with more queries, Obama or his cohorts as to the purpose of the purchase of a billion or more bullets? Are there that many skeet flying around loose? Beware! Malice in Blunderland is running rampant!

Was 0´s decision to retire for the evening that the Benghazi attacks were occurring malicious, stupid or both? I doubt that there was an absence of malice. After all, it was just four more white guys dying, as many more had already done in Afghanistan. Even the Navy SEAL who killed Bin Laden and has a list of service related disablities has been hung out to dry.

As soon as you can afford an assault rifle with a telescopic sight....buy one. And when ammunition again becomes available (and it will), buy a lot.

When the time comes, the regular army will not obey orders like: "Attack Peoria." Stinky the Gunrunner´s in-house militias in FBI, HS, etc., will be overwhelmed by a heavily armed citizenry.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

The Obama administration said Friday that it would block Iran’s nominee as ambassador to the United Nations from entering the United States, setting up a new confrontation with Tehran just as relations with the Islamic republic appeared to be improving. The decision to bar entry to the diplomat, who was allegedly involved in the 1979 seizure of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, followed intense political pressure on the administration from Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill. But it also marked a rare instance in which Washington has effectively vetoed another country’s preferred choice as envoy to the United Nations. Iran

Struggling homeowners across the country could face significant new tax bills if they receive mortgage relief from their banks, a prospect that threatens to slow the housing recovery and put further strain on distressed borrowers. The collapse of the housing market and plunging home prices left millions of people stuck owing more on their mortgages than their homes were worth. Some have worked with their banks to reduce the loan amount to avoid foreclosure or enable a sale. In 2007, Congress adopted a law that spared those homeowners from being taxed on the amount of the loan that was forgiven. But

The New York Times reported the resignation as a punishment for failure: Officials said Ms. Sebelius, 65, made the decision to resign and was not forced out. But the frustration at the White House over her performance had become increasingly clear, as administration aides worried that the crippling problems at HealthCare.gov, the website set up to enroll Americans in insurance exchanges, would result in lasting damage to the president’s legacy. So Sebelius stuck around just long enough to reach the mythical 7 million enrollment number

The House Oversight Committee has voted to hold former IRS subpotentate Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress, while the House Ways and Means Committee has referred her case to the Justice Department for criminal prosecution. The facts in the case suggest very strongly that Ms. Lerner has earned the contempt of the American people as well as criminal prosecution to the full extent of the law. The question of whether Justice will do justice now rests with the Obama administration, in service to which Ms. Lerner organized and oversaw the repression of nonprofit activists under color of IRS authority.

A few weeks ago, with no notice, the U.S. government intercepted Mary Grice’s tax refunds from both the IRS and the state of Maryland. Grice had no idea that Uncle Sam had seized her money until some days later, when she got a letter saying that her refund had gone to satisfy an old debt to the government — a very old debt. When Grice was 4, back in 1960, her father died, leaving her mother with five children to raise. Until the kids turned 18, Sadie Grice got survivor benefits from Social Security to help feed and clothe them.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Recently elected Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is warning that global warming could raise sea levels high enough to flood the Hampton Roads region, home to the world´s largest naval base, without immediate and “smart decisions.” Addressing an environmental summit this week at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va., McAuliffe embraced climate change, blamed humans for causing it, and said action is needed now to protect Virginia´s coast from rising ocean levels that will result from global warming. “The first big decision of course is to accept that climate change is real,” he told the group. “I happen to believe in

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love.” This time the potential 2016 candidate put it differently. “To be young and

The deportation of foreigners living illegally in the United States is similar to the forced internment of ethnic-Japanese Americans in World War II, according to Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi. “I’ll be very honest with you: Looking at the numbers at some point, in terms of how people are treated and deported and families separated and the rest, this has a scent of Japanese internment,” Pelosi told a Politico reporter. “It’s really a black mark,” said Pelosi. Roughly 110,000 ethnic-Japanese immigrants and their American children were detained during World War II after Japan’s sneak attack on Americans in Pearl Harbor. Pelosi also urged Obama

Under the administration of President Obama, as never before in my lifetime, there is reason to be a bit afraid of the federal government. I have written two books documenting Obama´s abuses of power, his assaults on the Constitution, his wars against business and energy, his abominably reckless spending, his divisiveness, his renegade Justice Department, his regulatory expansion, his executive orders, his overall lawlessness, and more. Obama´s conduct concerning Obamacare alone would be enough to get the impeachment wheels rolling for any other president. His flagrant, deliberate lies regarding almost every aspect of that
