The State of Illinois sunk to new political lows on Wednesday, February 26th as New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg's Independence USA Super Pac bought the Democratic Special Election Primary (and most likely the General Election) to replace disgraced former U.S. Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. for Robin Kelly. Michael "Sugar Daddy" Bloomberg and his Super-Pac spent well over $2 million dollars to ensure an easy victory for the former Illinois State Representative (and um New York Native) Robin Kelly.
Of course buying an election in Illinois isn't anything new or newsworthy given its history of corruption. However, when an outsider (and a sitting elected official with a Super Pac) from New York starts meddling in Illinois Politics, well then that becomes quite another story doesn't it? Especially given Michael Bloomberg's strange relationship with Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel.
What isn't strange, though, is the agenda of Rahm Emanuel and Michael Bloomberg which is to ban all gun ownership. Naturally their views are misguided given the animal mentality of gang-bangers and their total disregard for human life and/or prevailing gun laws. Gun Ban or not - politicians will never eliminate the flow of guns to street gangs no matter what sort of political stunts are used. Besides, the courts have already determined that the State of Illinois is in violation of the U.S. Constitution when it comes to gun ownership and/or the right to carry concealed weapons. Quite frankly, Illinois would just be wasting taxpayer dollars they don't have trying to usurp those constitutional rights.
So what is the real agenda then? Well it is pretty clear to me that the real agenda is to take away the constitutional rights of the people. And when you consider the fact that our elected officials have all but ignored the will of the people it makes perfect sense. America as a Democratic Republic is all but dead anyhow because she has slipped into an oligarchy. No longer do elected officials listen to the people, rather they arrogantly ignore them. And anyone living in Illinois for the past forty years would understand that.
Illinois Speaker of the House Michael Madigan has run the Illinois Legislature similar to that of a despot. Hell, I don't think that Benito Mussolini or Adolf Hitler had anything over on Michael Madigan and his cohorts when it comes to the total domination and/or suppression of the legislative process. And all of them have thought nothing of the rights of the people. It may sound harsh but from a historical perspective that is exactly how those despots deceived the people of Europe before unleashing their sinister agendas upon them.
Absolute power corrupts absolutely and that is what we have right here in Illinois. If Michael Madigan and his cadre of Madigoons do not want to pass legislation which is beneficial to the people, commit to Real Pension Reform or enact Real Ethics Reform it just won't happen without the express approval of the Speaker of the House. Period!
And that folks, is exactly how Europe fell to the above-mentioned tyrants. People blindly embraced an ideology that didn't exist all the while refusing to pay attention to what they were doing until it was too late. And if you look at the same blind allegiance Illinois Voters bestow upon yet another empty ideology, well what do you think the eventual outcome will be as it relates to our rights and liberties?
Yet the people of Illinois continue to play their part in all of this ever so brilliantly. They continue to ignore the motives behind the deeds of their Democratic Saviors while also ignoring the obvious that the true cost of corruption allows lawmakers to take away essential government and human services from them. This despite the fact that Illinois Lawmakers passed the largest income tax increase in the history of the state upon them.
And guess what? It continues to get worse as Illinois' bills remain unpaid while Michael Madigan rewards campaign donors like the United Neighborhood Organization (UNO) that, err, strangely resembles the now defunct Hispanic Democratic Organization (HDO). It just goes on and on in this Den of Corruption. Monies that should have been used to pay the original backlog of bills have remained unpaid yet all the political insiders and cronies of the Democratic Party are still getting their cut off the top.
So what happens when the Certified Pension Payment comes due? That payment must be made and as a result that bullshit line we were all given about this tax increase being necessary to pay what again hasn't been paid or a pension system fiasco that Illinois Lawmakers just refuse to address let alone reform. Hmm seems to me that the Boogle of Weasels in Springfield will soon be asking for yet another tax increase while wiping out even more essential budget items that taxpayers have already paid for multiple times.
Strange creatures these Illinois Voters are. They have become so secure in the havoc their elected lawmakers wreak upon them that they now even forgo going out to vote altogether ensuring a low turnout victory for their dedicated and corrupt officials. Sadly, yesterday's primary attracted a paltry 12% of the registered voters in what was an important special election. The 2nd Congressional District, though, seems to be very content with their revolving door of corrupt officials which have left most of the district in the sad state it has been in for decades. But hey, if they don't care then they don't care and there isn't anything that can be done about it. They are, after all, getting exactly what they pay for.
So really, is it really any wonder as to how Michael Madigan and his Madigoons are able to control this State and the entire legislative process?
Illinois Voters - You Are To Blame First and Foremost For The Mess We Are In!
And your latest stamp of approval was when you let an outsider get someone elected to the U.S. Congress which, by the way, is now bought and paid for by another special interest. Well I guess the only thing left to do now is anoint Robin Kelly, the presumptive General Election winner with an apropos nickname for any future blog posts.
Hmm how about Robin "Bought and Paid For" Kelly?
