CORRUPTION WATCH-We, the Sheeple, in order to be further deceived and fleeced by the billionaires do hereby declare Tuesday, June 5, to be the new Fools’ Day previously known as Election Day.
Is it good or bad that most Angelenos do not vote? It is neither good nor bad since most who vote are clueless and voting is an exercise of ignorance.
What do we know about the candidates in the June 5thPrimary Election? Almost nothing, but that’s because no one really cares how much they are manipulated. In a previous issue I discussed how in voting for judges, the average voter has little to no knowledge about anyone running to be a judge. Yet, people vote. Since the federal courts have said that California courts are suffering from an “epidemic of misconduct,” it would seem wise notto vote for anyone who is already a judge. The feds told us that the reason California courts are so unjust is that judges turn a blind eye to perjury and falsification of evidence. When the justices who review lower court convictions see that the prosecutor himself took the stand and committed perjury in order to convict the defendant, these justices have called it a “not reversible error.”
Why did a prosecutor take the stand and commit perjury? He wanted to cover up the fact that he had solicited a lying jail house informant to commit perjury. Now you know why so many innocent people end up in prison. Do we really want to reward anyone who has allowed this infection of injustice to go unchecked for decades?
Yet, we Californians routinely re-elect judges over 99.9% of the time. What sane electorate re-elects judges who pattern themselves on the judges from Sodom and Gomorrah who were named Liar, Great Liar, Deceiver and Perverter of Justice?
But, let’s turn to the bizarre situation of Tony Villaraigosa’s running for governor. Yes, in the midst of the #MeToo Movement, LA’s own Skirt-Chaser-in-Chief is being promoted as our next Governor. But wait, it gets weirder.
Who has become the terrible threat causing us to resurrect Mr. HerbLife to run for governor? Democrat Gavin Newsom! Yes, a handful of LA billionaires apparently got in a hissy fit that Gavin Newsom might become Governor. Or, could there be a deeper conspiracy? Based upon no knowledge and upon the rankest of speculations, could the purpose of the LA billionaires’ promoting Mr. Give-Me-More-Lakers-Tickets be their fear that former State Controller John Chiang might come in #2 in the primary? Then, Gavin Newsom would face John Chiang in November 2018 and Californians night not elect a party hack to be governor. In 2011, Controller Chiang threatened not to pay California legislators unless they passed a balanced budget.
Hmm, voters might find that approach to governance refreshing.
This conspiratorial line of reasoning, which is based upon no facts but rooted in extreme disillusionment with California politics, theorizes that if the November election were between Newsom and Tony V, then the billionaires could rest assured that they would remain in control of our lives. Thus, it was worth it to make certain Chiang was not #2.
But, Gavin Newsom had his own ideas and, thus, began running advertisements in favor of the Republican Candidate John Cox in the belief that if Cox wins the number two slot in the June 5thprimary, then Newsom could easily win in November.
Here’s the point for us Sheeple to understand: whether Newsom, Villaraigosa or Cox becomes governor, the billionaires will win and everyone else will lose. Why do you think that California has the largest economy and yet its people are the poorest in the entire nation? Why do you think that in the year 2000 Los Angeles was the nation’s premier destination city and now it’s in last place? No, don’t blame Newsom; don’t blame Tony V, or even Eric G.
It is not actually the billionaires’ fault. We the Sheeple are at fault. Fool us once, shame on you; fool us for two decades in a row, shame on us.
