Hyp Hyp Hypocrisy: Cheney, Bush And Iran

Cheney's Argument Get's Shipped To Siberia

Cheney’s Argument Get’s Shipped To Siberia

Hyp Hyp Hypocrisy – September 12, 2015

This one is almost a week old, but worth storing here for my own use later.  In this episode, Chris Wallace of all people, on Fox New Sunday, of all broadcasts, bitch slaps Dick Cheney who is so busy trying to tag Barack Obama as Neville Chamberlin that he’s willing to ignore those irratating little things called “facts”.

In short, Wallace reminds Cheney that when they took office, Iran had Zero (0) centrifuges for developing fissile nuclear material and when they left Iran had 5,000.  That’s in addition to having removed the balance of power that kept Iran tied up in the region and disbanding the only military they feared — Saddam Hussein’s Iraq.

So when I hear the right tell me it’s Barack Obama who is weak for negotiating a deal getting 20,000 centrifuges down to 5,000 and delaying an Iranian nuke from being ready three months from now until a decade from now, if the treaty holds,   I really can’t help but cheer: Hyp Hyp Hypocrisy.  And if the treaty doesn’t hold, military action will still be as viable an option then as it is now.

Here’s a more complete report on the the interview between Wallace and Cheney:

Hyp Hyp Hypocrisy – Trump Outsources Jobs He Could Give To Americans, To China

trump-made-in-chinaHyp Hyp Hypocrisy – 8.28.15

Having already provided the facts dealing specifically with Donald Trump getting almost all of the details wrong in regard to Mondelez International in Chicago, this is a good time to address the underlying issue: the exporting of American manufacturing jobs to other countries.

As this is usually an issue of concern to Democrats running for office, it is nonetheless still legit.  The problem with Donald Trump raising this issue is simply this: he is as guilty of outsorucing as anyone.  Case in point: the Donald J. Trump Signature Collections which as you can see in the photo above…are made in China.  At least Mitt Romney had the decency to bury his hypocrisy deep within the venture capital firm that did his bidding.  Trump, as with everything else,  puts his name on it.

When it comes to concern about corporate outsourcing of American manufacturing jobs and Donald J. Trump: Hyp Hyp Hypocrisy.


Hyp Hyp Hypocrisy – Trump Says “We Must Treat Each Other With Respect”

Hyp Hyp Hypocrisy  8.23.15

Two days after the incident of two thugs who beat up a homeless man on the streets of Boston and gave credit to Trump being right and more than a day after his only comment was that it’s a shame but ” people who are following me are very passionate”  The President of Douche Land now says his supporters need to “treat others with respect.”

This from the same guy who declared to Megyn Kelly during the first GOP “debate” that he might no longer be nice to her because he didn’t like her question and followed up within a day by insinuating in a Tweet that she must have been on her period the day before. He’s also the guy who called Lyndsey Graham an idiot. Tweeted of Rand Paul “Truly weird Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky reminds me of a spoiled brat without a properly functioning brain. He was terrible at DEBATE!: Said about John McCain, “I like people who aren’t captured” and invested time at a recent New Hampshire campaign stop asserting Jeb Bush is dumb, in a manner of ways.  That, my friends is leadership through example.

Clearly, when this clown declares it time to “treat others with respect” the rank and file are sure to fall right in line.

All this from the rich guy who with all the conveniences money can buy, still can not carve out any time for either Political Correctness or to not be a total douche.

Say it with me gang: Hyp Hyp Hypocrisy.  Hyp Hyp Hypocrisy.  Hyp Hyp Hypocrisy

Hyp Hyp Hypocrisy. Iran, Israel and Military Aide To The Ayatollah

I got to spend some time yesterday with some dear old friends who I love and respect tremendously and was mildly surprised to find how deeply they are opposed to the nuclear deal with Iran.

In short, the threat they perceive to Israel is at the root of all this, yet it seems they, Sheldon Aldeson and the extreme right wing of the American electorate fail to recall that Israel itself has provided arms and comfort to the original Ayatollah, who was much more doctrinaire than today’s team. And they did it in concert with the Godfather of the Right, Ronald Reagan.

The very people complaining about “dealing with the Ayatollah” these days, are the direct decedents of the guy who made secret deals with the Iranians designed to A) lift his own profile while humiliating an outgoing president and then B) arm that very enemy in a twisted effort to get around Congressional bans on selling weapons to Iran and arming thug armies in Central America.

Irrefutable evidence proves Ronald Reagan, through William Casey, cozied up to the Iranians at least once and very strong evidence points to his having cozied up to them twice and under even more heinous circumstance.  Some will reflexively call the later assertion — that Casey and George H. W. Bush made a deal with Iran to continue holding 52 Americans hostage until after their administration took office, a conspiracy theory.  I see it through my own prism, which I call: “Coincidence Theory.”

Carter negotiated endlessly for the better part of a year including all night leading up to his own departure from office, and yet our most bitter enemy at the time (we can argue if the USSR was as bitter) holds onto the hostages until 20 minutes after Reagan took the oath of office.  Then the hostages get released and Israel transfers arms to the Ayatollah.  Coincidence? Of course it was.  So let it go becasue we are looking forward, not back.

And for those with absolutely no memory or knowledge of the Iran Contra scandal, let’s just restate some known history:  Oliver North and Robert McFarlane traveled secretly to Iran with a key shaped cake  (signifying  the opening of a new friendship) and a bible for the Ayatollah.  Shortly thereafter a chain of events unfolded in which Israel delivered weapons to the Ayatollah while the Ayatollah transferred small arms and other weaponry to the “Freedom Fighters” in El Salvador and Honduras.
Ronald Reagan first denied all this at a press conference and then retracted the denial to admit that indeed arms transfers had taken place. The official White House position in those days was that they “do not negotiate with terrorists” however the deals with Iran at the time helped gain the release of Americans being held hostage in Lebanon.  Hyp, Hyp, Hypocrisy!!


There have also been recent reports that Israel continues to supply military aide to Iran even as Benjamin Netanyahu campaigns to derail the agreement to limit Iran’s nuclear capability. Hyp Hyp Hypocrisy, squared!!


And finally, in a footnote to the Iran Contra affair,  the decedents of those right wing supported “Freedom Fighters” in Central America back in the 1980’s  now lord over the most violent and corrupt governments on earth while those they sought to defeat in Nicaragua are now governing a peaceful and prosperous nation.  …. I know. Facts Are Stupid Things.
