Cognitive Dissonance at the Wall Street Journal – The Establishment GOP Media & Political Class Will Never Get It

January 29, 2014 – San Francisco, CA – FreeFireZoneBlog.com – We are going to be picking on the WSJ today, not because we have a special grudge against it, but because the thinking at that newspaper [part of the Murdoch publishing empire] displays a lot of the characteristics of what is terribly wrong with the political opposition to the Democrat Party, which is largely Marxist by way of ideological affiliation.

This morning, the Journal published a wonderful piece authored by Ted Cruz, a personal hero of ours. The topic, The Imperial Presidency of Barack Obama.

The thematic content is encapsulated in Mr. Cruz’ lead ppg:

Of all the troubling aspects of the Obama presidency, none is more dangerous than the president’s persistent pattern of lawlessness, his willingness to disregard the written law and instead enforce his own policies via executive fiat….

This thesis is expanded throughout the piece, for example:

…There is no example of lawlessness more egregious than the enforcement – or nonenforcement – of the president’s signature policy, the Affordable Care Act. Mr. Obama has repeatedly declared that “it’s the law of the land.” Yet he has repeatedly violated ObamaCare’s statutory text…Not by going to Congress to change the text of the law, but through a blog post by an assistant secretary at Treasury announcing the change….

None of these assertions are really open to conjecture as far as we are concerned.

It’s, as they say, an open and shut case – Mr. Obama is acting as if he is Señor Jefe of some Third World pineapple plantation government.

Mr. Cruz would not be allowed enough space in the WSJ to adequately deal with even the most egregious abuses of power in which this administration is engaged.

There simply aren’t enough column inches.

Despite the tautological truthfulness of Cruz’ recitation of charges, the subtext is ignored and we find that far more interesting and probative with regard to the serious matter he raises.

Not knowing the mindset of the WSJ’s editorial staff it would be fool-hearty to assume what might motivate the newspaper to publish Cruz’ devastating bill of particulars.

Perhaps they think, as does this writer, that the critique is spot on, perhaps they feel that they should curry favor with this fast-rising Senator from Texas who has obvious presidential aspirations and many of the tools required to make that a reality.

It really doesn’t matter though because the very presence of this nifty little bomblet is in an odd way more revelatory of the trouble at 1211 Avenue of the Americas rather than that which is percolating over at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

We maintain this to be the case because – assuming there is some affinity between the sentiments expresses by the Senator and WSJ management – what one hand of the Journal giveth the other taketh away.

And it’s the matter of the “takeaway” which is of prime importance here.

The Journal has been on record for a long time now as being in favor of some form of amnesty for illegal Mexican aliens. Though they might call them undocumented, hard-working, salt of the earth people yearning for freedom, in reality they are lawbreaking, low skilled, often illiterate pawns of a rapacious crony capitalism.

These mooch faux-capitalists seek through amnesty to depress the wages of legal American workers, also, though they don’t need them, they would certainly like access to impoverished, ignorant and compliant workers whom they can mold in whatever form they might require.

Here we might direct you to picture the Service Employees International Union, whose operation depends on newly minted proles with strong backs who don’t talk back.

Big Agra is much the same in its desire for low skilled, poorly educated desperate people to pick the crops, because as u have been taught, “Americans aren’t interested in that kind of work.”

This is of course correct, no one in their right mind is going to engage in backbreaking labor at 9 bucks an hour just to please Wall Street.

Offered a market driven  wage in a labor pool which is not flooded with the illegal effluvia of the Third World there would be more than enough applicants.

That is unless the assertion here is that there are some jobs which require slave labor, an argument which we thought was settled in the negative, in a rather nasty affair which took place about 150 years ago.

Why bring up the case of the illegals?

Because it’s where the Journal and its kindred spirits are caught in an untenable dilemma of their own construction.

If the powers that be, which includes all of the usual suspects and also a substantial number of GOP types, including their most influential advisors, people such as Karl Rove, get their way – and they are going for the gold on this one – what will happen is as described below.

In some manner or form, “undocumented..wink wink…nod nod, workers” are granted some form of quasi-legal status. It may be something as simple as a legislative declaration that immigration laws will not be enforced [as opposed to Mr. Obama’s illegal approximation of same].

It could go much further however, if people like Boehner are allowed to bring the leadership’s legalization scheme to the floor, which will make the upwards of 12M [probably a lot more] illegals already here legal, but not citizens – recognizing them but not permitting them to vote – then things will turn ugly very quickly.

How long will it take for racialist lobby, think La Raza, MALDEF or Marxist advocacy groups, the ACLU or National Lawyers Guild, to bring suit on behalf of Rosario Galindo his girlfriend and three little bambinos, claiming that giving these people legal status but denying them to vote is unconstitutional?

How long would it take for the 9th Circuit Court to wade into the matter [48 hours max] and provide injunctive relief from the obvious oppression that denial of the vote would represent.

Whoops, just in time for 2014, how coincidental.

So, following the WSJ’s philosophy [again, we aren’t picking on the WSJ per se, it’s just that organization’s editorial advocacy is symbolic of where the GOP/Chamber of Commerce/Big Ag/Political Advisor Complex is on this matter] we go from a bad situation to one in which the nature of the American electorate is forever changed.

Do you think the left will give credit to The Journal, Boehner, Paul Ryan [sob, what a loss] and the rest for their act of beneficence?

Sorry pal, don’t you know that the GOP is inherently and incurably racist, misogynist and homophobic? Do you think that the left will pass up the opportunity to slam the Republicans in campaign commercials alleging that, “sure, these bastards wanted the sweat of your brow, but they don’t want you as part of their America.”

If you believe that the left would hold itself in check, then the moon really is made of cheese.

The newly minted, formerly illegal Mexican, citizens will overwhelmingly vote the straight Dem party ticket and they will be chauffeured to the polls just to make sure their vote is recorded at least once.

The road the new legalization advocates are rapidly heading down is one where the genuine Obama will be followed by another one at least a reckless and one in which both houses of Congress will be in the hands of the left.

That complete control may not last in perpetuity, but given the havoc that only two years of Obama/Reid/Pelosi’s “United Rule” caused, imagine the wreckage that 8 or 12 or…..years could bring.

That damage would be permanent…irrevocable.

The claim to government freebies would soar out of control faster than you can say Speedy Gonzalez. The market [much to the chagrin of the Wall Streters who support this scheme] would instantly tank and real citizens would nervously be breaking out their ARs.

This isn’t hyperbole. What these self-important nincompoops are up to will bring about perpetual totalitarianism, which of course will most likely breed a revolution, the likes of which no nation has ever seen.

By comparison, the Siege of Stalingrad will be a walk in the park and do you think that Vlad Putin, Khomenei and the sawed off N. Korean dog-eaters won’t take advantage of the situation?

Listen up boys and girls, there is only one thing that can stop this looming catastrophe and that is becoming politically active, not through the normal way, you know, “come on down to the GOP Central Committee and help us stuff envelopes for more of the same, hey, we’ll buy you a pizza”

Melt the phone lines, flood the faxes, crash the servers, if necessary peacefully march on DC, shut the MF down.

We don’t have to take this.

We shouldn’t simply stand by while a spineless bunch of cowards –  yeah Boehner you are number on the list, your putty-faced idiot alter-ego, the minority leader of the Senate, is a close second – sell the country out and for what?

All this has been set in motion by one thing, the GOP not wanting to be called bad names.

News Flash – you guys can’t escape that, you have already blown whatever credibility you had, which wasn’t much to start with. People who should naturally support you already hate your guts, there is no reason why the left shouldn’t join in the merriment.

Perhaps these clowns deserve the Amerika they are now feverishly trying to mint, but the rest of us don’t.

How about this Mr. Speaker all of us will  chip together and fly you to the banana republic of your choice, one way. Give it a try and get back to us, in the meantime put up or get out of Dodge, because sooner or later you will be hitting the road anyway, what you have set in motion guarantees that.

Disclaimer – we are NOT advocating a violent or non-violent overthrow of the government, nor are we encouraging illegal activity. What we are doing is insisting on our right to petition the government along with the right to replace it if necessary in a manner fully consistent with the Constitution.

If you don’t like it, take it up with Mr. Madison, assuming you can stop him spinning in the grave long enough to pop the question.

If that does happen, don’t expect to walk away without at least bloody nose…
