The Egotist Part 2: "Laws Are For Using Against The Little People"

Nice Deb has transcribed a part of Peter Schweizer's interview with Sean Hannity:

Author Peter Schweizer was on Hannity, Tuesday night to talk about his explosive new book Extortion.

He talked about the mind-blowing corruption and political extortion that is rampant in DC, these days on both sides of the aisle but noting that it comes from the top. He compared the Regime to “the squeegee man that used to be in NYC – they’d walk up to your car and say I want to clean your windshield – they’ve got a cloth in one hand and a brick in the other, and you’ve got to pay them or the brick’s coming through the windshield”….

He said that’s a huge problem at the DOJ. “Eric Holder is the basically the Squeegee guy holding the brick. There are companies that are being told that they are subject to DOJ investigation, criminal and civil, and then these companies are solicited for political donations to the Obama Campaign (in 2012) and now to political committees and there is statistical evidence in the book that literally, you cut your chance of going to jail in half if you make a contribution.”

He said, “the other thing they’re doing is after the 2010 midterm elections, when they had that stunning defeat in Congress, the Obama Department of Justice targeted the industries that financed the tea party candidates that got elected.”

Literally days after President Obama made that famous statement “we’re going to punish our political opponents,”[the Holder DOJ sent out an industry sweep letter to companies in the oil and gas sector which said you are subject to criminal investigation and you'd better share and was a clear intimidation tactic being used."

Remember what happened to Gallup when they released some polls that weren't pleasing to Obama, last year? All of a sudden, they were the subject of a DOJ investigation into their poll methodology..."Punish your enemies..."

Schweizer's Squeegee guy analogy is close to perfect. The sole countermeasure to the brick-wielding Squeegee guy is a driver with a gun in his hand, loaded, cocked, and aimed straight at the miscreant's face. That's enough to cause any but the craziest such extemporaneous extortionist to back away with an insincere apology. However, when the Squeegee guy is the federal Department of Justice, no gun is large enough to be adequately threatening.

And of course, Obama, Holder, and their partners in political extortion know that full well.

The egotist regards himself as above those around him. The supreme egotist -- the megalomaniacal narcissist type of which Barack Hussein Obama is today's best example -- regards himself as above all else in the universe. Two sorts of creatures believe, emotionally if not intellectually, that their deaths would bring the universe to an end. The solipsist is one sort; the megalomaniacal narcissist is the other.

Thus it's no great stretch to conclude that the megalomaniacal narcissist regards himself as above the laws. More precisely, he views the laws, whatever they might be, in the same light as all else that exists: tools to be used for his purposes, if possible; encumbrances to be swept aside, if not.

The Obama / Holder DOJ is in perfect accord with that view. From its first days in power it's acted as if the laws were merely mechanisms to be used solely against those it disapproves. The New Black Panther atrocity, the Fast and Furious scandal, the refusal to investigate or prosecute vote fraud, the obscene posturing over the Trayvon Martin affair, the attempt to enforce portions of the Voting Rights Act nullified by the Supreme Court, and other scandals put it beyond reasonable dispute.

This is the sort of governmental misconduct for which the Second Amendment was written. Nothing else could possibly correct it. The Department of Justice surely won't be investigating or prosecuting itself. Neither will Obama take a personal hand in the matter, as long as Holder and his DOJ subordinates continue their faithful service to the Obamunist agenda. Holder's a good Hessian; he knows which side of the bread is buttered.

What, then, must we do?

Schweizer's revelations are the most consequential disclosures ever presented to the American public. They document the ultimate manifestation of corruption among the powerful. There is no way to dismiss them, nor to trivialize them, without simultaneously dismissing the foundation of Americans' respect for the law: the premise that the law is above all persons, and applies to all equally.

However, you may rest assured that the Obamunists are already plotting to take Schweizer down. If they cannot somehow discredit his investigation as deceitful, invalid, or compromised by bias, they'll go after him personally. He will be defamed. His character will be impugned in the most shocking ways imaginable. Cleverly contrived evidence of his dissolution and corruption -- PhotoShopped pictures showing him "in bed with a dead girl or a live boy" -- will shortly be presented to the electorate.

It's conceivable that Schweizer will experience crimes of violence and invasion. His home might be invaded. He could be assaulted on the street. More subtly, he might be approached by extortionists wielding "evidence" of his duplicity. He'd better watch his back. The same goes for his loved ones.

Remember what Obama's henchmen and handmaidens in the media did to Sarah Palin in 2008? Schweizer should expect treatment still rougher. I hope and pray he's braced for it.

Nice Deb adds a swift but piercing evaluation to Schweizer's revelations:

My God, Hannity's right, we're living in a Banana Republic.

With a megalomaniacal narcissist at the top, decreeing who may buy, sell, or consume the bananas, when and where and at what prices, entirely at his pleasure. There follows an inevitable question, both Deb's and mine:

When are people going to wise up??

When, indeed?

Mr. Schweizer is publicly documenting what a minority have realized for years, decades, even centuries. Nonetheless, you have to admire his courage.

Hasn't politics always been about this, in some fashion? Some historians say that the state came into being by legimating through law, extortion and protection rackets.

The difference now, as we progress towards endgame, is that the massive size, and pervasiveness, of the state has created multitudes of opportunities for looting the citizenry in multiple forms.

Lets face it, this has been a big growth industry for decades now, certainly since the New Deal, and most certainly since the advent of the Great Society of Johnson.

Saint Paul told the young missionary Timothy, "preach in season and out of season".

I take that to mean when it's save and convenient -- and when it's not.

The Insiders are more afraid of our words than of our guns.

They lust for a chance to "show" the public that we are violent and ungovernable terrorists.

But criticizing them is like pouring the water on the Wicked Witch of the West.

Meanwhile, like the Squeegee Guy, being at all times READY to shoot has to be our great backup.

Schweizer seems to distinguish the extortion practiced by politicians for personal gain from the extortion on which the entire government is based: taxation. I don't. Both are criminal.

We have risen to new heights of depravity when people cannot differeniate between politicians lining their pockets for personal gain, and the same politicians using the force of government to destroy their opponents,blackmail them, and extort them. Isn't this why our forefathers revolted?

Its time to burn the whole thing down and start anew. There are too many Marxists entrenched in the USA.

Well said and thought out Mr.Porretto.
As always, I come away from your insights with something of value.

They may give Mr. Schweizer the Andrew Brietbart treatment. It is within their insidious nature to do so. That says everything about them.

And what is the murder of one more compared to the trail extortion, misery and bodies left in the wake of bloody politics this regime holding our nation hostage?

A Gordian knot.

It is come to our time where The Truth is a revolutionary thing. As Sarah Palin knows all to well:

"In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act."

And revolution of the armed violent type is what happens when peaceful redress is prohibited by the means these tyrants have imposed upon us.

A paradigm is close at hand.
A threshold where once crossed there will exist no peaceful means of changing the evil path this republic is barreling headlong down. A point of no, non violent civil, return.

I for one believe violent redress will be one of the consequences.

And if you give it a careful reasoned think, what other recourse will be viable for the people if they choose to redress such wrongs, as this corruption of our government and the tyranny imposed to hold onto that power, and it's system of organized crime and tyranny, the monopoly of violence it threatens all who resist, becomes the leviathan of Hobbs insights.

Tyrants and their sycophants as history has proven, as tyrants are want to do, do not give up their power until it is wrested from their foul meathooks through violent means.

Will it come to as a contemporary American put it?

"There will be no voting our way out of this, and that is as it should be, in at least one aspect: free people do not supplicate to government. They become manifest in their actions." — Billy Beck

There is always hope, if by some saving grace, a person of great principles and moral fiber leads us by example back towards liberty and self determination. Or we man up and do so together. By the grace of God do we go there.

For all the evil these men and woman bent on destruction of our society and it's lawful civil contract, this is still a great Republic. There is so much good worth fighting for. The rule of law the little people of this land bitterly cling to is what holds us together. It is all that is holding us together.
There is everything to be said for it.

In that profound light, these hyenas and jackels, these crooks liars traitors and tyrants running our country are the cheapest, most illegitimate people imaginable.
They are worthy of our scorn and every effort at our disposal to banish them from our lives.

As John Adams said, “Let us disappoint the men who are raising themselves upon the ruin of this Country

Yes, Lets Win!

PS Mr. Porretto,
Please don't be upset with the lengthof my rant. I liked what you wrote and it inspired me.

I hope we are far enough down our current path that people will finally be willing to consider this extraordinary fact: Democracy is not just an anti-christ, spoken of by St John. It is The Antichrist.
