A Matter of Trust * Open Thread *


Everyone knows that most of the citizens of this country do not trust their government. Even the corrupt media reports that sad fact. They don’t bother to report on their own part in that lack of trust or the fact that they aren’t trusted either.

Like the saying above shows trust is a fragile thing. This unwieldy, dishonest and sadly corrupt government knows that. They simply believe that trust or no trust people will generally get in line and back their “tribe”. Put a letter “R” behind a politicians name or the letter “D” behind another’s and their Tribe will vote for them.

The proof of the corruption of the citizens is seen in the way that the Democrat voter says they will vote for Hillary Clinton even knowing she is corrupt and unfit to govern. We once looked for leaders – now we will accept known crooks. That says more about the people than it does about Hillary. She’s just another in a long line of politicians with no honesty or integrity. The news is that many don’t care.



Did you expect the country to rise up in outrage when our current repulsive POTUS insisted that men, and sorry folks if it has a penis it’s a man, be allowed in ladies restrooms and locker rooms? I did.

I didn’t believe that any Mother or any Father, left or right would allow such craziness. I thought they would never allow such a danger to their daughters. I was wrong. There was a little bit of a fuss and now nothing. Perhaps, and I hope this is true, that the quiet is just before the storm and that dozens of law suites are being filed to stop this assault on our women and girls. The women’s party Mr. President? Only the foolish ones.

And now, the military is allowing Transgenders. That should work well.




I know that I have trust issues. I know that I personally am cynical. Having watched politicians and politics closer than most I think that’s only reasonable. Reasonable people don’t trust liars, crooks and thieves. The average voter does or doesn’t care.

That may explain the fact that people say they don’t like or trust the congress and that the whole kit and caboodle should be kicked out of office. Then they go to the polls and vote 91% of incumbents back onto office. The rationale for such craziness seems to be that while they don’t think your Senator or Representative is fit to be in office they do think that their Senator or Representative is. Yet if asked most would say they don’t trust the people that they just voted back into office. Hop on board the crazy train.



There was a time when I trusted to the common sense of the American People. That time has come and gone. Common sense is in very short supply.

I knew that the last two generations have had a liberal education forced on them. Therefore they don’t, for the most part, know how to think. They were taught what to think. You don’t open minds that way you close them. That was the intent.

Serious people who want their children to be the best they can be don’t trust the education system. Year after year they give us graduates that are functional illiterates. Young people who not only don’t know how to think but don’t show much interest in thinking period. With the help of our education system we are turning out hedonistic parasites. But most will become reliable Democrat voters. All for the love of free stuff.

Trust in our education system? You cannot be serious. I shouldn’t just pick on Chicago but this Ramirez cartoon is just too perfect. Suffice it to say, the cartoon could apply to almost any major city run by liberals for very long.

And in the spirit of the devil quoting scripture – how about this Hillary Clinton quote?

In almost every profession – whether it’s law or journalism, finance or medicine or academia or running a small business – people rely on confidential communications to do their jobs. We count on the space of trust that confidentiality provides. When someone breaches that trust, we are all worse off for it. ~ Hillary Clinton

I know, disgusting isn’t it that this corrupt, dishonest woman would talk about trust. In a just world her jaw would lock, her voice would fail and a bolt of lighting would strike her. Instead she is likely to be the next POTUS and Billy Bubba can move back into the White House and seek and destroy another young intern.

One thing you can always trust is that politicians will use the words that used to mean something – trust, honor, freedom and integrity while caring nothing for any of those things. You can trust their intent to get as much money, they’re greedy buzzards the lot of them, and their lust for power.

Now they trust that the American People in their stupidity, their ignorance and their own brand of corruption will elect either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump to the highest office in our land. To be our Commander in Chief, to be our Leader, to be the face and voice of America to the world.

Trust? That train has long left the station. Hang on folks it’s going to be a very, bumpy ride!

      I think Elijah Cummings is a disgrace to the office he holds. But he’s the right color so his district will keep inflicting him on the American People.

    Excellent post, Marge. It is amazing to me how far we have sunk in terms of picking our leaders. Remember when a major candidate had to drop out because of the hint of an affair? Then we elect Clinton – twice – a known philanderer. Experience, competency, and decency have all been thrown out the window in this “American Idol” culture in which we now live. Now, pure superficials suffice for people to rally behind their candidate, often hurling vitriolic epithets in support of their candidate and aligning themselves with people of loathsome character. That is where we are now. Honesty, integrity, decency, morality have all fallen by the wayside.

    And yes, I blame our Educational system for a lot of this. The teaching kids WHAT to think not HOW to think is at the route of this, as well as the constant barrage of mediocrity and reducing people to the lowest common denominator rather than celebrating the intelligence and gumption of those determined to succeed. Success itself has become a dirty word in this (formerly) Capitalist country.

    That things have played out the way they have this summer has confirmed everyone’s suspicions and fears How the hell we get back from here is beyond me, but we must try nonetheless. I t sure won’t be easy, though…

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      If we are the people we have always claimed to be there will come a tipping point. If we’re not…

    so now under comey, the excuse ” I didn’t know the gun was loaded” would get you off.
    Damn all the years that I was told ignorance of the law is no excuse was a lie

    Hillary Clinton Is Above The Law

    By David Harsanyi

    No reasonable person could possibly square what FBI Director James Comey said about Hillary Clinton’s use of a personal e-mail system during her time as Secretary of State with his final recommendation.

    now the dems are using the well he did it too defense. When my kids tried that one it did not work with me. It is not working when the dems are using it either

    stolen from the crawdad hole

    Check out this comment on ace:

    Comey was on the board of HSBC when they got busted for laundering cartel money. HSBC got prosecutorial deferment from the US Attorney’s office overseeing the case when a deal was cut. That US Attorney was Loretta Lynch. Shortly thereafter, Comey was nominated to be FBI Director.

    HSBC had also been accused of laundering/handling money of terrorist organizations. I wonder how much Clinton Crime Family Fund cash passed through them as well?

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      So it would appear that his reputation as the last honest man in Washington was all a lie too.

    watching this hearing , I can understand this

  11. Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

    Well, this story is sure getting legs. If it is true, I am sorry to hear it for Carlson’s sake How terrible this must have been for her. And now she is going up against a very powerful man/machine. She is one brave and courageous woman, that’s for sure. I wish her and attorneys the best (h/t Facebook friend): http://money.cnn.com/2016/07/06/media/gretchen-carlson-roger-ailes-lawsuit/

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      When I first heard the story I thought she was just a disgruntled employee. Then I read that she was “winning” her time slot – why on earth would a network not pick up her contract?

      Then I read that there are numerous other women ready and waiting to join her. It’s looking to me like she’s telling the truth.

      And she is certainly courageous to take on FOX News – because if you take on Aisles you are taking on Rupert Murdock and his media empire. I wish her well.

      And I hope that if Aisles is that kind of a scumbag I hope that every woman he ever approached gathers her courage and joins Carlson’s cause.

      I read something earlier, and I cannot remember where, about Michelle Fields, she of Corey Lewandowski fame, having problems with Aisles at one time. I suspect media will try to make this go away. Let’s hope they aren’t successful.

      If you want to hear Daniel Horowitz’s take on Aisles and FOX listen to Steve Deace’s podcast from yesterday.

    trey gowdy

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      Trey Gowdy is at his best when questioning some miscreant. Sadly the miscreant in this instance is the Director of the FBI.

  15. helenk3 Says:

    I would move to Texas to vote for this man

  16. helenk3 Says:


    comey and whitewater

  17. helenk3 Says:


    will we get the same result?

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      If they don’t get the same result then Comey, Lynch, Obama and Clinton will look like the crooks they are. They will of course get the same result and Hillary will walk free again.

  18. mcnorman Says:

    Perhaps Trey Gowdy should moderate the debates?

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      He’d be good at it. But the two “choices” would never hold up under a Gowdy interrogation.

      Anyway the “moderator” isn’t supposed to be brighter than the debaters. That’s a low bar and most Media types that end up being the “moderators” will slide right under.

  19. Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

    I awoke to the horrific headline that 5 Dallas police officers were assassinated last night and more than twice that injured. BY SNIPERS. I am so mad and upset, I can barely stand it. I lay these actions at the feet of President Obama, AG Holder, and the Democrats for ginning up the lawful reactions of a police officer when attacked by a CRIMINAL who happened to be black.

    AND I am mad that the White House, and Dems, have continued to perpetuate a LIE in the form of the Black Lives Matter movement, allowing them to OPENLY threaten the lives of police officers without any comeuppance. The Democrats have made it Open season on police officers with their race-baiting rhetoric, “Hands Up Dont Shoot” bullshit in the House, and more. I am beyond disgusted at this.

    This paragraph frames is telling: The use of force by police against African-Americans in cities from Ferguson, Missouri, to Baltimore and New York has sparked periodic and sometimes violent protests in the past two years and has spawned the Black Lives Matter movement. (http://www.aol.com/article/2016/07/08/two-police-officers-shot-at-protest-in-dallas-local-tv/21426172/)

    What the author leaves out is that THEY WERE ALL CRIMINALS!!!!! EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THOSE MEN WHO WERE KILLED WERE CRIMINALS!!!!!!!! Michael Brown attacked Officer Wilson not once, but was going after him TWICE. WTH was he supposed to do, let him??!?! The one case, Gray, seemed more like an accident than intentional, but in the NY case referenced, the criminal resisted arrest, and he did NOT die due to “use of force”

    I am so sick of what Obama and the Democrats have done to this country I could scream. And now, the Republicans have allowed the Democrats to pick their nominee so that a woman who has no right being President likely will be (unless those Delegates do the right thing). This kind of thing will simply continue as the race baiting and glorification of criminals as victims will continue.

    Wow. Just Wow.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Obama says Americans are “horrified.” We are. And many of us are horrified that a US President has done so much to ally himself AGAINST the Police, beginning with his “Beer Summit,” then claiming his son would look like Trayvon Martin, then weighing in on the Michael Brown case by sending representatives of the WHITE HOUSE to the funeral of a criminal who attacked a police officer, and then this just recently (via WH Dossier): http://nypost.com/2016/07/07/after-fatal-shootings-obama-says-police-must-root-out-bias/

  20. kenoshamarge Says:

    And the CiC condemn the attack on Law Enforcement but used the opportunity to climb back on his pet hobby horse – gun control. He is a disgusting POS and like you I believe that he is greatly to blame for the war on police by criminals that see a government that supports them not the police or law abiding citizens.

    My guess is there will be another rush to buy guns after this. The public can see that the police can’t even protect themselves so how can they count on them to come to their aid?

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Honestly, whenever I think I can’t hate Obama more, he provides a way. He is the worst, most divisive, President I have ever seen. I cannot believe how much damage he has done to this nation in just 8 yrs. I loathe him.

  21. Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

    For a bit of a change, here is some astral news (Helen, I thought of you): http://www.cnn.com/2016/07/06/health/black-hole-star-radio-telescope/index.html
