Our Ruling Class

Thomas Lifson highlighted Mark Levin’s show-opening diatribe on our Ruling Class. Make sure that you watch the opening clip! Mr. Levin exposes the (mostly) self-serving fraud that government has become and the self-interest that drives it. Government has been captured by a group of professional criminals who speak and dress nicely (note that even the Mafia did one of these things well). Most elected officials pretend to act in your interest while being the greatest threat to your “life liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” It is quite a racket. Most of these people are not smart or brave enough to make it in the Mafia so they prosper in the organized crime we euphemistically call “government.”

It is not Joe Biden who, at his peak, was a dummy. His pre-fog past showed a lack of intelligence and integrity. His institutional-grade “confusion” now requires substantial handling. (Technology has advanced to the point where he could be “hologrammed” to make his appearances seem more competent.) Nurse Ratchet, his power-lusting wife (whose PhD in Education is an achievement comparable to anyone with an advanced degree ending in “Studies”), should be jailed for elder abuse.

But I digress. This is not about the pathetic Biden couple or family. It is about government in general. It is about power in particular! The concept of public service exists no more. Service implies sacrifice and giving. Today, the term public “serpents” is more appropriate. Public exploitation is the goal of this “elected” professional grifter class. You are the prey and they are the hunters.

The elected class and their bureaucratic government cronies should be thought of in this fashion:

  • They produce nothing.
  • Some are intelligent; most are embarrassing.
  • Their primary goal is self-aggrandizement.
  • Idiots become millionaires in quicker time than it took Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates or others who actually served citizens to achieve this goal.

In a brilliant article (modifier redundant usually when talking about Victor Davis Hanson) entitled The Sovietization of American Life , Hanson explains our condition in detail, ending with this sentence:

Behind all our disasters there looms an ideology, a creed that ignores cause and effect in the real world—without a shred of concern for the damage done to those outside the nomenklatura.

I do not know how this overreach ends other than further pain is coming. Ultimately it will not end well for the professional grifter class. The spirit of individualism and freedom is the foundation upon which we were built. The structure may be on fire and may even burn down. But the foundation will survive. It will be built upon again.

I would not want to be in the exploiter class when this process occurs.

  1. Many fellow citizens – most, if not all, reading this – have been aware of and believed these facts for quite some time. A long list of compelling articles have appeared here, courtesy of Mr. Pelerin, who maintains a sharp eye for provocative contributions to our ‘continuing education’.
    Yet, we may have passed the point of Due Diligence , arriving at the junction of “Actions Speak Louder Than Words” and “Too Much Analysis Leads To Paralysis”. For the mountains of facts as evidence that have repeatedly confirmed the diagnosis of a putrefied America, Government, Elected Officials and Rule of Law, the “cure” doesn’t appear on the horizon – if it exists at all beyond memes and clichés.
    Put more simply: when will a sufficient number of our fellow citizens get beyond the “Harrumpf! Harrumpf! Harrumpf!” of feigned shock and awe at the scandalous behavior of the ‘ruling class’ and actually do something about it? Don’t say ‘just wait til the mid-terms’ unless you’ve acquired a controlling interest in Dominion Voting Machines Corp and have an album of nude pictures featuring George Soros, Nancy Pelosi, and a goat.
    The other day, someone reasonably intelligent said “America needs a Hero’. Maybe so. Surely, one American Hero would be easier to find than, say, a few hundred thousand firearm owners braying “Molon Labe!” and “From My Cold Dead Fingers” to the choir on social media and at NRA conventions. Right? OK – maybe not. Maybe a Hero is the real American Dream…
