Denial Ain't A River

Denial isn't a river. Denial is public policy. And I, for one, am getting tired of it. It is our country and we deserve accurate information. Bad or wrong information puts us in danger and causes us to make wrong decisions. It seems every elected or appointed official in Washington has willfully bought a ticket for the train to denial.

What started me on this tirade was the electrical blackout in Washington yesterday. I am sure that, when the lights went out in the White House, the Justice Department, and other big deal seats of government, there was a lot of sphincter tightening and stomach roiling. But auxiliary generators kicked in. The lights came back on. Sighs of relief were exhaled. 

Then, within minutes, we were assured that terrorism wasn't involved. Bull. That was pure denial. There is no way that qualified engineers and investigators could have been brought together, found the fault, gathered evidence, and come to an accurate conclusion, that fast.

The first line in the government denial script is, "there was no terrorism involved!" There is never any terrorism involved because there is no terrorism in this country according to those that would rule us. And that non-existent terrorism has nothing to do with Islamic jihad. Ask anyone in the administration and they will explain it to you.

Those twenty odd jihadist training camps in our countryside are just vacation camps for angry young men of Middle Eastern ancestry. They just enjoy things like martial arts and marksmanship.

According to the administration, there wasn't a "smidgen of illegal behavior" by the IRS. And Beau Bergdahl was really a fine young man who got confused and wandered away. And a movie trailer caused Benghazi. It just goes on and on. 

Even the loyal liberal press is starting to show signs of rebellion. A little late to the party, but better late than never. But this administration, never at a loss for a straw target, has elevated Christians operating under "white privilege" to the level of causing all of life's problems. They pray that, with a little luck, that will offer them cover for their ineptness for the next two years.
