When did U. S. Politics and all government jobs become the School and breeding ground for CON ARTISTS and their CON JOBS?

Clark GableIn 1973 Paul Newman and Robert Redford starred in The Sting, an excellent movie which was all about serious Con Men (Redford and Newman) and an outstanding sting they pulled on a very bad man. This, of course, made them the good guys and the heroes of the movie! It was excellent entertainment and a very successful movie. Everybody should know that the Con Job can be performed on either good and/or bad victims. Most intelligent or sophisticated or street smart people and all reporters and political pundits should have a basic understanding of the existence and abilities of Con Men!

Today our government at all levels is filled with Con Men and Women! If you don’t believe that just think about any politician running for office and consider what they promised to do if elected and then after being elected they ended up doing just the opposite of what was promised! The best way to get elected to a government position is to lie and promise the moon. I am still not certain why our politicians completely skip all those promises after a successful election. Our current president is the epitome of this form of political activity. He has never known a promise that he didn’t break in record time. This type of activity is quite simply a classical Con Job!

Politicians have been Conning the electorate for many years so most reporters and political pundits have been watching and reporting on this activity since the beginning of reporting! All reporters and political pundits should be able to spot a CON when it is being perpetrated. If they are, why aren’t they reporting to themselves and to We The People when we are all being Conned? Is it possible that they just don’t realize when a politician is Conning us? I don’t think so, is it against some unwritten reporting rule that even when they know we are being Conned they can’t actually bring themselves to say that? If so the news people should do their best at eliminating these unwritten reporting rules!

Here is a list of some very well-known people. I want you to search your memory for any time you heard reporters and pundits report that these people were CONNING  We the People? Have you ever heard these people Con the electorate, Barbara Boxer, Dianne Feinstein, Harry Reid, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Elijah Cummings, John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Orrin Hatch, Anthony Weiner, Michael Bloomberg, Bob Filner, Richard Nixon, Bill Clinton, Louis Farrakhan or Hillary Clinton? And please remember that these are just a very few of the names that could have been cited in this report. Actually most of these people are top flight CON ARTISTS! Much of what they say is at best at odds with the truth or they are simply talking about something they just don’t know anything about, but doing it so convincingly that people actually believe the things they say!

You might be asking yourself why Obama has been left off of this list! I left him off of the list above because Blah Blah Oblahma deserves an exalted position in this special discussion about CON ARTISTS! He is probably the best pure Con Artist in the history of the world!

In 2008 some poorly informed people in this country actually believed that Obama was The Messiah! Of course these ill-informed believed that he was the second coming of Christ and so the Messiah label was bestowed upon him. He wasn’t the second coming of Christ, but he was the Messiah of CON ARTISTS! His entire life has been a GIANT CON JOB! How do we know that?

His biggest single tell and therefore his biggest single weakness is that when he is talking without a written speech he just can’t stop talking. On September the 4th in Sweden in front of members of the Swedish Press he just kept talking and going on endlessly about information that was not relevant to the questions being asked. He even lied when he said that “he had not drawn a RED LINE” and he did that because he believed he could bullshit those people into believing whatever came out of his narcissistic mouth, a truly unbelievable display of a masterful Con Artist actually believing his own Con!

The evidence that his entire life has been one long continuous Con is empirically staggering. Nobody really knows anything about this secretive narcissistic child masquerading as an American imperial president! His entire being is a constant display of Narcissism so if he wasn’t CONNING about his capabilities  he would have been bloviating continuously about his academic and other successes. He has no serious accomplishments except conning everybody he comes in contact with!

One magnificent achievement (CON) was his selection for The Nobel Peace Prize. The real truth is that he has never done one damn thing or been responsible for one thing which furthered the cause of world peace! Actually a serious case could actually be made that he may be responsible for moving the entire world closer than we have ever been towards another serious war, World War III. The fact that he had been able to convince anybody that he deserved the Nobel Peace Prize was one helluva Con Job! 

Even after his record of magnificent CON JOBS he has been keeping all of his personal records away from the press and away from We The People!  If he wasn’t a Con Artist in the middle of pulling another gigantic Con he would have reveled in what he would like us to believe are his wonderful academic records and the magnificent results of his mental substance.

Unfortunately he has spent huge amounts of money to keep these activities and results secretive from We The People. Wake up and ask yourself why would he do that? He doesn’t want us to know just how little he knows about important subjects and how devoid he is of substance! He is such a sick Narcissist that he actually believes he can just keep talking and talking and nobody will understand that he doesn’t know what the hell he is talking about.

We really don’t have any knowledge about his academic history or results relative to it and we see absolutely no record of any serious career accomplishments! And that lack of knowledge my friends includes his entire history and the entirety of his political life. What has he done besides “run for office” even after being elected and in that office? He has literally conned his way through life from the time he was young, all the way through school including college and straight into the perfect life for a CON ARTIST, politics! And the most exciting votes he made while in the Senate of the United States were those when he voted “PRESENT.”

In today’s digital society it is nearly impossible to keep your history secret but Blah Blah Oblahma has done a masterful job of being our “unknown president.” The Democrats were so anxious to produce a Messiah they didn’t bother to make any attempt at vetting this unknown upstart from Chicago! And then we have the serious failure of our so called FREE PRESS! They didn’t do any REPORTING at all. They simply printed and perpetuated the belief that the Messiah had arrived. Some actually fell in love with him and his constant outpouring of BS.

Blah Blah Oblahma pulled off the greatest CON JOB in the history of the world when he was elected president of the United States of America!

In the early days of his presidency some very knowledgeable reporters and pundits, both liberal and conservative couldn’t explain him or what he was doing but they continuously called him smart! Even at this stage almost none of our brightest political pundits have been able to explain the POTUS and have not identified him as the Con Man he is. I submit to you that he isn’t that smart but he just may be the most CLEVER CON MAN in history! He is also being directed by some of the most evil political minds in our history! At this time in our history our poorly informed electorate has twice elected a dangerously clueless CON MAN who thinks an ingratiating smile can hypnotize all of the people.

I have been in the process of putting my thoughts about our clueless, phony, conniving CON MAN president and have yet to hear other pundits call this joke politician a con man or a phony which he clearly proves to all every time he opens his mouth. However, recently one of my favorite scholars, authors and pundits, Thomas Sowell wrote about this topic and as usual stated the information very clearly! I have included these comments below as further clarity of my contention that we have the current world’s best ever CON MAN residing in our White House and continuously referring to himself as our SUPREME  COMMANDER and to our military as “HIS MILITARY!”    ———-

T SowellA Truly Great Phony – By Thomas Sowell

Many years ago, I was a member of a committee that was recommending to whom grant money should be awarded. Since I knew one of the applicants, I asked if this meant that I should recuse myself from voting on his application.

“No,” the chairman said. “I know him too — and he is one of the truly great phonies of our time.”

The man was indeed a very talented phony. He could convince almost anybody of almost anything — provided that they were not already knowledgeable about the subject.

He had once spoken to me very authoritatively about Marxian economics, apparently unaware that I was one of the few people who had read all three volumes of Marx’s “Capital,” and had published articles on Marxian economics in scholarly journals.

What our glib talker was saying might have seemed impressive to someone who had never read “Capital,” as most people have not. But it was complete nonsense to me.

Incidentally, he did not get the grant he applied for.

This episode came back to me recently, as I read an incisive column by Charles Krauthammer,citing some of the many gaffes in public statements by the President of the United States.

One presidential gaffe in particular gives the flavor, and suggests the reason, for many others. It involved the Falkland Islands.

Argentina has recently been demanding that Britain return the Falkland Islands, which have been occupied by Britons for nearly two centuries. In 1982, Argentina seized these islands by force, only to have British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher take the islands back by force.

With Argentina today beset by domestic problems, demanding the return of the Falklands is once again a way for Argentina’s government to distract the Argentine public’s attention from the country’s economic and other woes.

Because the Argentines call these islands “the Malvinas,” rather than “the Falklands,” Barack Obama decided to use the Argentine term. But he referred to them as “the Maldives.”

It so happens that the Maldives are thousands of miles away from the Malvinas. The former are in the Indian Ocean, while the latter are in the South Atlantic.

Nor is this the only gross misstatement that President Obama has gotten away with, thanks to the mainstream media, which sees no evil, hears no evil and speaks no evil when it comes to Obama.

The presidential gaffe that struck me when I heard it was Barack Obama’s reference to a military corps as a military “corpse.” He is obviously a man who is used to sounding off about things he has paid little or no attention to in the past. His mispronunciation of a common military term was especially revealing to someone who was once in the Marine Corps, not Marine “corpse.”

Like other truly talented phonies, Barack Obama concentrates his skills on the effect of his words on other people — most of whom do not have the time to become knowledgeable about the things he is talking about. Whether what he says bears any relationship to the facts is politically irrelevant.

A talented con man, or a slick politician, does not waste his time trying to convince knowledgeable skeptics. His job is to keep the true believers believing. He is not going to convince the others anyway.

Back during Barack Obama’s first year in office, he kept repeating, with great apparent earnestness, that there were “shovel-ready” projects that would quickly provide many much-needed jobs, if only his spending plans were approved by Congress.

He seemed very convincing — if you didn’t know how long it can take for any construction project to get started, after going through a bureaucratic maze of environmental impact studies, zoning commission rulings and other procedures that can delay even the smallest and simplest project for years.

Only about a year or so after his big spending programs were approved by Congress, Barack Obama himself laughed at how slowly everything was going on his supposedly “shovel-ready” projects.

One wonders how he will laugh when all his golden promises about ObamaCare turn out to be false and a medical disaster. Or when his foreign policy fiascoes in the Middle East are climaxed by a nuclear Iran.

Clark GableRecently I read a statement published by someone in Europe who is unknown to me and I have published it several times in tweets and in my blog. It states our problem so clearly that I believe it should be stated and re-stated. The author may be unknown but the information was clearly written by a very wise person.

The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their President.”
