Guest Post By KenoshaMarge: Politicians And Their Pants On Fire *Open Thread*


We are fortunate to have a guest post by KenoshaMarge today. Thanks so much, Marge! Enjoy!

Why do politicians lie? Because they can. Because for the most part they pay no penalty with their voters for lying.

Campaign promises? Who expects them to keep silly campaign promises. Everyone knows they just make promises to get elected.   

Yup, everyone knows. Did we know when so many of us went to the polls to give the Republicans a majority in the Senate that most of them were lying to us? We didn’t “know” but any political savvy voter suspects that is a politicians lips are moving, they’re lying. Old joke. Old truth. What’s saddest of all is the acceptance of this old joke and old truth. If they lie and get away with it, that’s on us. It is also on a biased media that doesn’t bother informing the public anymore. Too busy being political activists instead of doing their damn job.

I won’t bother with Obama’s lies, they would take me the rest of the day. Suffice it to say he’s a serial liar and his supporters simply don’t care. Ditto Hillary. Both liars, both Dems.

So does that let Republicans off the hook? Hell no. At least not with me.

Voters in our foolishness gave the Senate back to the Republicans in 2014. We believed that they would keep at least some of their promises for fear of being sent back to a minority if we were not happy. Evidently they don’t fear that. Most of them. And especially Mitch McConnell, liar extraordinaire. I don’t live in Kentucky so I am spared the angst of having voted for him.

Is McConnell a liar? Ted Cruz says so. And this post from Townhall appears to prove Cruz right: McConnell One Year Ago: ‘You Can Count on Me’ to Lead Pro-life Legislation.

I wonder how the voters in Kentucky who voted for this lying POS feel now? Defrauded, swindled and cheated? scratching-head Not surprising if they don’t. Also not surprising if they don’t care enough to vote this old fart out of the Senate and into retirement.

He’s proved he cannot be trusted to keep his word over and over again. How does that make him a better choice than a Democrat?

McConnell flat out lied. He did it more than once and I would bet a bundle that the same people that are angry with him now will vote for him in the next election unless the old fart has the decency to retire. Which is not bloody damn likely.

I understand that many voters don’t know or care about issues. Their knowledge extends to the latest talking point and not one bit beyond. They are the party voters on both the left and the right. Doesn’t matter to them what the people in their party do to this country, they’ll keep right on voting for them.  Don’t feel lonely if you can’t understand why people would do that. There are a lot of us who can’t figure it out.

There are very few who still find the truth important. I cannot believe that is so and yet the proof is in front of me constantly. I don’t even blame the ignorant fools who don’t know how many states in the union, don’t know who their congress critter is, don’t know why we celebrate the 4th of July or a number of other things that once were part of what a well-informed adult knew. After all they had the benefit of a liberal education.

Now thanks to the people in the Republican Party that refuse to keep their promises a fool like Donald Trump is leading in most of the polls. Does that give the GOP pause to think that maybe they have an angry voter problem? Because they did not do what they promised voters they would do once they had a majority in both houses people are so angry that Trump is using up all the coverage that might have been used for a candidate that might have had a chance to beat the repulsive Hillary Clinton. And the Republican establishment has no one to blame but their lying selves.

    Amen Marge, Well said, great post Thanks. ❤

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      Thanks foxy. Although now that I see it up I find that the last paragraph has got one of the longest sentences I’ve ever written. Why didn’t I see that when I edited? ;(

      • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

        I agree, Foxy – great post, Marge!

        And I hear you abt the sentence, too. That happens. If you want to change it, just let me know and I’ll take care of it!

    Third Planned Parenthood video suggests they profit from harvesting baby organs

    Tuesday, the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) released a third undercover video exposing Planned Parenthood’s participation in baby part harvesting.

    The first in a series, the third video is entitled, Human Capital – Episode 1: Planned Parenthood’s Black Market in Baby Parts. The “Human Capital” documentary web series, “integrates expert interviews, eyewitness accounts, and real-life undercover interactions to tell the story of Planned Parenthood’s commercial exploitation of aborted fetal tissue,” says the CMP.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      I just caught the last little bit of the video today, so am waiting to see more, but one thing is abundantly clear: there is absolutely NO regard for human life by these people, none. It is just beyond comprehension to listen to the cavalier manner by which they talk abt these fetuses.

      And the cartoon is SPOT ON!!!!!

  3. Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

    Marge, a Facebook friend had this Salon piece. It goes right along with the discussion yesterday abt Bill Clinton/Cosby as Camille Paglia highlights the similarities between the two:

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      I read that. I was surprised because Paglia is usually an fervent apologists for the left. Must be she wants Warren and is willing to bring the Clintons down to get her.

      • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

        Ah, but of course. Good point. Though she did take a pretty good swipe at people like Gloria, so there is that. I lost all respect for Gloria, “Ms.”, and other Pro-feminists when they went with the far less qualified man in 2008…(And though my eyes have been opened to Hillary, I still think she would not have done as much damage as Barack has to this country.)

    It appears lil’ Chrissy Matthews is feeling that thrill up his leg again. Perfect? Immaculate?Really? How in the world can anyone take this putz seriously? No wonder Greta beats him in the ratings by more than two to one. And even CNN beats in in the 24-50 demographic so beloved of sponsors. I cable didn’t bundle and we could chose the channels we wanted instead of being stuck with losers like Matthews and the other clowns at MSNBC they would be out of business.

    Matthews hails ‘immaculate’ Obama, ‘perfect’ Michelle

    This week’s Mainstream Media Scream features MSNBC “Hardball” host Chris Matthews with his latest comments that the Obama presidency is near perfect.

    On his July 22 show, he heralded Obama’s “immaculate” presidency, reacting to Republican Sen. Marco Rubio’s charge that “we already have a president now that has no class.”×398

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Are you KIDDING Me with this? Please tell me this is from The Onion. What a buffoon – “immaculate”??? “Perfect”??? He really does think Obama is the Messiah, doesn’t he? Something seriously wrong with that guy…

    I thought you all would appreciate this in light of Kerry’s testimony today on the Iran deal:

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      Now that’s funny! We know a lot of people named “Urso Skrued” in government don’t we. I gotta steal this one.

  6. Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

    And then there is this one:

    Was having a conversation with some people over at NQ about comedians and that opened the floodgates of memory for me.

    George Carlin was my favorite from the time I first saw him on Johnny Carson until his death in 2008. Clods like Stewart aren’t fit to be mentioned in the same sentence.

    But my other two favorites were Buddy Hackett and Bob Newhart.

    I didn’t care much for Newhart’s television shows but loved his standup. Especially one of his first bits, “The Driving Instructor”. Remember it? The sound quality isn’t all that good on this video but it still makes me laugh.

    I am in the house. still unpacking. did not have tv or computer for almost a week. did a lot of reading. still catching up on what is happening in the world. glad I missed a lot of it

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Glad to hear from you, Helen! And glad you are ensconced in your new home. You were missed!

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      You were missed Helen. Glad to have you back. Although I’m sure the “vacation” from politics was a welcome one.

    meteor showers tonight

    all these years who knew?

  12. kenoshamarge Says:

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Sheriff Clarke sums it up perfectly, doesn’t he?

      This is the same mindset that makes the Left insane abt all things Confederate, getting a flag taken down in record time, getting companies to stop selling all merchandise within a week, but REFUSES to call Islamic Terrorism by name.

      Just crazy.

  13. Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

    A friend had this at Facebook. The high level Iranian connections to Sec. Kerry are mighty surprising – beginning with his SON-IN-LAW:

    one picture is worth a thousand words

  15. kenoshamarge Says:

    And that silly Hillary logo that never stops giving – to the right.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:


      • kenoshamarge Says:

        But not to worry Democrats, I just read somewhere that she has a new hairdo. That should fix everything.

        I can’t imagine Carly Fiorina’s hairstyle being discussed, can you?

  16. helenk3 Says:

    dems won’t like this

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Oh, DANG – good for Patmon for saying so! Since he’s a Dem, and Black, they can’t exactly play the race/party card. And he is RIGHT…

    just because
