Katie Hill Affair and its Aftermath
are Signs of America’s Decline

Original Article

It’s truly not shocking that a political leader would be a reprobate behind closed doors. From Caligula to the Marquis de Sade to Bill Clinton, the depraved have always been overrepresented among the ruling classes. It is for this reason that what’s even more distressing about the Katie Hill affair than what she did is the reaction to it from the broader society — including “broadminded conservatives” defending her. Hill, the former Democrat congresswoman whose resignation from office took effect Nov. 1, certainly is our time’s Thoroughly Modern Millie

This is exactly why government wants to take God out of society. Government, especially the Obama administration, wants to define the morals of society. Democrats and liberals have latched onto it and have now come up with labels for Republicans and conservatives who do not want to bend in their ways. Government or God? I know my choice. . .

I’m a little surprised the Dems didn’t come to her defense. This is, after all, diversity at its best and it’s what they do. If it’s got a pulse and room temperature they’ll probably jump on it.

FTA: “Right and wrong aren’t determined by what people, even great masses of them, have done and want to justify. Right doesn’t become wrong because wrong becomes a rite.” That’s it in a nutshell. Man wants to determine what is right and wrong and that will be ever evolving depending on what society deems right or wrong. God set it out one time and that settles it. Secular humanism will destroy a culture, society or country. Just look at this country. Any behavior can be justified if there is ever evolving standards. Man does not want to even acknowledge the authority of God much less live under it.

Katie Hill was an amoral person, and I think she should be out of congress, but why don't these same standards apply tp Ilan Omar? Aside from her amoral behavior, she's got the illegal immigration tactics to add to the mix.

Hill's sexual exploits, once again, point to a spreading moral decline among our government leaders. It is not confined to our elected officials. Rather, moral decline runs rampant among our entire population. Question - how can we expect our elected leaders to govern and control our lives when they can't even control their own lives? Answer - when a government has gone rogue and no longer represents the people. You have to view the sexual behaviors or Hill and others among Congress. Weiner and Menendez immediately come to mind, as do a number of pubbies. Moral relativism at it best. Indeed, this explain why the left is replacing belief in God with obeyance to the deep state and new world order. But, God has made it clear that He has an answer for this that humanity will eventually witness. To help rationalize America's decline as explained by Selwyn, there are numerous writings that describe the eight stages of the rise and fall of great civilizations. These are worth a browse. As you will see, America has entered the eighth and final stage. And if we aren't careful, we will soon be among the rest of the world.

How generous of the broadminded, I don't really want to know, but you have to ask yourself, and what are the practices of her fellow travelers? These are the kind of people who put degenerates in libraries to expose little children to their practices and of course "accidentally" expose themselves to the children. That's what you get for your generosity you twits.

There is the story of the philandering husband who told his friend, "I have been constantly cheating on my wife with anybody in skirt. Afterward, I feel so guilty about it. What should I do?" The friend suggest he go to a psychiatrist for help. Six months later the friend asked him, "Did the psychiatrist help?" "He sure did." "So, you've stopped your philandering?" "No, I'm as active as an alley cat, I just don't feel guilty about it any more." This is the way Progressives/Democrats deal with problems.

About our plummeting morals: I clearly remember returning to the US after a working-abroad stint and thinking, WTH has happened here? In just a few years, prevalent societal attitudes had morphed into "Well, if they're gonna do drugs, give them clean needles. Or if they're gonna have sex, give them free condoms." I couldn't understand how this had happened so quickly. And then I realized that at the same time the media had changed it's mission from REPORTING the who, what, where, when and how of an event to...becoming the voice of the "little guy", the minority. Some would consider this a noble cause; others like me consider it no longer JOURNALISM. At the same time, news was available 24/7. So when the American public hears ONLY the minority cause du jour, all day, every day--- the news becomes DISTORTED and it seems like the minority opinion is the majority. And those who would advocate for the majority opinion are suppressed and inhibited. I put the blame for our moral decline squarely on the backs of the mainstream media.

"Throuple?" It used to be called a 'menage a trois.' Immoral, probably, unseemly, certainly, commonplace over the course of Western civilization at all levels of society, most definitely. I don't see this as anything new or different. As a child I remember Wilbur Mills and Fannie Flagg drunkenly cavorting in a D.C. fountain. There were repercussions. Everyone seems to have forgotten Bob Packwood as well, resigning in 1995. The only one to avoid any serious penalties seems to be the former governor of Arkansas.

This type of behavior was admitted publicly as far back as the sixties and was promoted by such publications as Playboy Magazine as the lifestyle that was routinely practiced by the hip and sophisticated. One exception though, men were proud of multiple sexual partners and envied for it but women did not participate and brag about it. Apparently that red line was crossed somewhere along the way. You can give it any name you like but the "sophisticated" class is still nothing but a bunch of sleazy low life animals. Rome, Sodom and Gomorrah paid the price and so will these people.

Sexual dilly-dallying is the most innocuous form of corruption. The Washington cesspool is so much more putrid in so many ways that these titillating episodes are a diversion. This is old lady gossip on the deck of the Titanic. Pathetic.

Impervious as ever to the impact of centrally planned greenie socialism on the reliability of electricity in California, Gov. Gavin Newsom is running scared. He's threatening the Hugo Chavez solution to the new-normal of blackouts in his state, which is to say, nationalizing Pacific Gas & Electric. Nationalization? Boy is that a cop-out. (snip) PG&E has no money to put its electrical wires under the ground after all the "green mandates" the socialists in the California state assembly have foisted on them, forcing them to convert to pricey, unreliable and wire-transmitted solar and wind power instead of efficient, reliable, cheap fossil fuels.

In The Atlantic, Sarah Longwell, executive director for something called Republicans for the Rule of Law, an advocacy group run by NeverTrumps still bitter that Jeb Bush was denied his designated shot to lose to Hillary, drafts a plan for Senate Republicans to finally oust Trump from office. Her man for the job: Senator Romney. The piece reads like a screenwriter optioning a script. There's drama, scuttlebutt, the balancing of ambitions, character conflict, palace intrigue, a war of values. There's even artsy ambiguity, with Longwell unable to provide a satisfying conclusion to her fictional putsch.

There's a fine line between analyzing news and nakedly offering advice to one side and now Peggy Noonan has crossed it. Far from being one of her interesting and sometimes very very good touchy-feely analyses -- I've been willing to give her the benefit of the doubt on much despite her record of hating President Trump -- her latest on the impeachment sham is all about helping the Democrats get it done. She's not even pretending to be the objective observer of American politics and its voters. In this piece, she's cheerleading and offering advice -- for Team Schiff.

The arrogance and lack of self-awareness among the mandarins that inhabit the top levels of our government bureaucracies has led to a smoking gun-level confession. Rather than respecting the will of the voters who elect a president, they proudly substitute their own policy preferences and think nothing of conspiring to drive from office the person who holds legitimate authority to make policy and conduct the affairs of government. A confession from a man who formerly ran the CIA came Wednesday at an event sponsored by a friendly organization (snip) Former CIA Acting Director John McLaughlin was among friends who share the same seditious outlook

Democrats and their media propaganda arm have been telling us since President Trump took office that “The walls are closing in.” First it was the Mueller investigation, then every fake news story from the media, from Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen being in Prague to Don Jr. calling his father about the Trump Tower entrapment meeting with some Russians. Every “bombshell” revelation about Stormy Daniels or Omarosa meant that “the walls are closing in.” (snip) Instead it’s officials in the Obama administration, up to and including President Obama himself, who notice the size of their rooms beginning to shrink.

I’m beginning to think that hidden somewhere in the White House or Trump Tower there’s a magic wand that the president wields which turns his detractors— old Obama hands, make-believe conservative politicians and commentators, Democrats, and the media, into laughingstocks. If so, this weekend he waved it over the Washington Post. (snip) You’d think Baghdadi’s obituary would acknowledge what a monster he was. The header the Washington Post chose for this was originally “Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, Islamic State’s ‘terrorist-in-chief,’ dies at 48.” It was changed to: “Abu-Bakr al-Baghdadi, austere religious scholar at helm of Islamic State dies at 48.” Why they changed it, I can’t say

An interesting portrayal of the leftist mentality, particularly as regards matters involving President Trump, can be found on the left-wing site Medium. It’s not often we get a clear picture of how leftists actually think.

In some cheering weekend news, ISIS's big terrorist chieftain, founder Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, was rendered into that proverbial grease spot on the desert floor. He won't be missed. It's a victory comparable to the military rubout of al-Qaida founder, Osama bin Laden. (snip) So much for all that "expert" opinion in the last few weeks in the mainstream media that President Trump's pullout of U.S. troops from Syria would inevitably bring the recrudescence of ISIS.

Do you think that it is a coincidence that as soon as the news broke that a criminal investigation of the origins of the surveillance of the Trump campaign was underway, Andrew McCabe withdrew his lawsuit against the Department of Justice and the FBI? It might be sheer random coincidence, of course, but maybe McCabe has bigger fish to fry when it comes to the courts. Roger Luchs offers an interesting perspective: Here’s the interesting question: Did he dismiss it because concluded it’s a loser, especially in light of anticipated indictment – or did he(his attorneys) conclude his suit waived his 5th Amendment rights?

The new “Batwoman” TV series featuring an openly lesbian Batwoman is failing big-time. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that young adults are turned off by the show's extreme woke and SJW (social justice warrior) politically correct messaging. “Woke” means you are aware of social and racial injustice. “Woke” also means straight white men are the source of all evil and must be punished. Women and minorities are perfect in every way. Woke culture says anyone who dares criticize a woman or a minority hates women and minorities.

WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump loses in a hypothetical matchup with all of the leading candidates for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, according to the results of a Washington Post-ABC News poll released Tuesday. Trump – with a job approval rating twenty percentage points lower than his disapproval rating of 58% – trailed by sizable margins against former Vice President Joe Biden (56%-39%); Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts (54%-39%); Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont (56%-39%), South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg (52%-41%) and Sen. Kamala Harris of California (52%-41%).

Joe Biden is out pulling rank.

John Durham may be the most consequential and least known figure in Washington right now. In May, U.S. attorney general William Barr selected Durham, a longtime prosecutor with a résumé so sterling it nearly glows, to investigate the origins of the special counsel’s probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election, and whether it was properly predicated. Some Trump fans believe there was a vast effort by a “deep state” of high-ranking intelligence and law-enforcement officials to smear Trump or hinder his campaign by creating a perception of corrupt ties to Russia.
