Let Me Introduce One of the Scumbags

Allow me to introduce just one scumbag out of the dozen or more in the videos put out by James O'Keefe's Project Veritas.  You've seen the videos elsewhere - or you should.  They are "must see" videos.  Meet Robert Creamer.
I instantly knew the name when I heard it and searched around here for what I wrote about him.  I was unable to find anything, but that doesn't mean I haven't written anything!  I've had difficulty with the search engine tool; I mean there are things I know I've written and can't find them easily.  I'm actually not sure if it's Creamer or Cramer; I've seen it written and heard it pronounced both ways, so I searched it both ways.  This article says that Wikipedia uses Creamer, and I think the preponderance of things I've seen since this story broke uses that spelling.

Getting back to the scumbag at hand, as that article says, he was a visitor at the White House so often he was practically renting a room.  The reason I recognized the name is that he's one of the handful of people "credited" with writing Obamacare long before Obama came to office; even before he started running.  In Creamer's case, he had lots of time on his hands while he was in Federal Prison during 2006 on bank fraud and tax evasion charges.  While on mandated leave from the sort of thuggery in these videos, he thought long and hard about how to destroy our health care system and make us more like Cuba or Venezuela.  In that time, he wrote a book called,  Stand Up Straight! How Progressives Can Win.   It's no secret that his goal was to make everyone dependent on the state; he says it in black letter text.  Stand Up Straight! advanced the notion that the Democratic Party could win a permanent majority in Congress by doing the following:
  • passing a national health care bill, thereby turning more people into wards of an ever-expanding government, and of the party that works to grow government; and
  • giving amnesty to all illegal immigrants, thereby creating, virtually  overnight, a large new constituency of Democratic voters.
Just a raw lust for power over others, camouflaged as concern for SJW causes like "economic justice" and building "a consensus that healthcare is a right".   In reality, he says, “To win, we must not just generate understanding, but emotion — fear, revulsion, anger, disgust.”  If your cause is really just and not just your lust for power, why do you want to leave people in states of fear, revulsion, anger and disgust? 
Many left-wingers say that Creamer’s book has inspired them in their progressive fight to turn America into socialist Europe. Creamer’s work has received support and garnered an endorsement from a surprising source. Or, maybe it is not so surprising after all. Former White House Senior Adviser, David Axelrod, described Creamer’s book as a “blueprint” for future progressive victories. Creamer has stated that in order to impose socialist healthcare on an unwilling nation, it is necessary to deceive the people.
More recently (a year ago) he was linked to helping to sell the Iranian Nuclear deal, and other pieces of leftist doctrine.  Creamer is married to Illinois Democrat (Marxist) congresswoman Jan Schakowsky, so maybe Federal Prison was a way to avoid spending too much time confined with her. 

Officially, Creamer resigned his post (audio autostart warning) after the videos broke, saying “I am unwilling to become a distraction...”.  Of course this is ruling class country, and I'm sure if he's not already picked up by another left-wing group, he will be soon.  A real scumbag. 


  1. Second Civil War. It's coming. I see the shooting starting in the next few years if these douchebags manage to steal the election.

    1. Few years? I was thinking a few months. Maybe weeks.

    2. As terrible as it sounds, I wish you were right, SiG. The thought that tyranny could become ever more firmly entrenched chills my soul. I've lived long enough that I wouldn't mind passing away over the smoking barrel of an HK91. For quite a few years I've been "making a list - checking it twice - gonna hunt down who's naughty, not nice". It would be satisfying to have some company doing that. Christmas could be time to "Deck the halls with haughty bodies".

      But, I don't see it happening, unless Clinton, along with the scum in the White House and Congress (the RINOs are not your friend) decide to go Full Monty on their grab for total power, not even bothering to pretend they won a real election. Time will tell.

    3. I dunno, it doesn't seem like Clinton et al. are putting out much effort these days to deny their power grab. Oh, sure, Hillary says nice sounding stuff when forced to address us serfs, but have you noticed they no longer deny any wrongdoing/cheating? Instead the progressives and elites deflect our attention with a new "revelation" about Trump, or danger from another country like Russia.

    4. Has anyone ever heard them present any evidence that Russia was behind the email leaks? I hear the accusation all the time, but never any claim of evidence.

      And it's obviously not coincidental that they've been sitting on this pile of charges against Trump waiting for every Wikileaks dropping so they can keep the news focused on how bad Trump is rather than what she did or said.

      Why anyone would pay any attention to stuff like that released in the last month of a campaign is beyond me. As someone said, "Trump has been a billionaire for years, and has been running beauty pageants for ages, which means he has been surrounded by beautiful women, yet not one allegation surfaces until he decides to run for president?? Sure, sounds legit."

  2. I agree with SiG, Reg T. Even if it has to start with me. I've had MORE than enough treason by those sworn to defend the Constitution before they pinned on that badge. The angst being expressed by "Law Enforcement" is special. But if they refuse to take action, then damn them to hell where they belong. Hillary and the rest of the Elite sewage stand behind their Blue Wall and laugh, because they know full well the Only Ones will do WHATEVER they are told, as long as that paycheck keeps comin' in.

    The stench is overwhelming. And it smells like pig.

  3. The demographic swamping of America started with that POS Kennedy in 1965. This is the thing that too many on our side, especially the NeverTrumpers, still "don't get." If Killary gets in, between amnesty and Islamic immigration, IT'S ALL OVER BUT THE SHOOTING.

    There will BE no 2020 competition. We could have a magical mix of George Washington, Ronald Reagan, and George Patton... and we'd still lose because the Left will have diluted Americans to the point of irrelevancy.

  4. The political rules of majority vote winner-take-all you presently consider yourself to have consented-to permit this behavior. Since they are following your rules, what is your basis for complaint?

    1. What an absurd statement. Where would you ever get the idea this sort of stuff is acceptable behavior? There are several laws against what these scumbags have been doing. Go read Denninger on the Market Ticker; he's written a lot about it. This should be a matter for law enforcement. With the same corrupt DOJ we've been watching for the last 8 years.

    2. Where would you ever get the idea this sort of stuff is acceptable behavior?

      From you. You are acceptING it, therefore you find it acceptABLE. Germans who got on the boxcars found those policies acceptable, too, as those millions of victims were too numerous to have been forced by any group opposed to them.

      This should be a matter for law enforcement. With the same corrupt DOJ we've been watching for the last 8 years.

      The reform mechanisms don't exist which are necessary to justify the expectation of a "should".

    3. I've got to assume you're just a troll because that's so wrong it's ready to collapse into a black hole of wrong.

      Your argument is like saying I go to watch a football game. I'm accepting the game of football, played by two teams following an agreed upon set of rules. Then one team comes out, cheats repeatedly, breaks a ton of the rules, and declares victory. You're saying that because I accepted the idea they'd play football, according to agreed-upon rules that the "winners" broke, I accept that. No. I can't see that logical connection. By not following the rules, they have broken the condition under which I found the game acceptable. They have broken the agreement. They are responsible, I am not.

      So since you're probably a troll, and the first law of trolls is "don't feed the trolls", this will be all.

    4. I'm sure my electrical details are wrong, but let me try an analogy. Suppose you were building a radio, and it had a spurious emission which was big enough to deserve removing. But instead of adding components to suppress the emission, you merely complained that the radio "should" not have this emission.

      What the radio "should" do is behave according to the laws of physics, which it IS doing. If your theory of how the radio works does not predict the spurious emission, then your theory is incorrect. In any case the radio won't behave the way you want until you alter the radio.

      In the football analogy, your unhappiness with the on-field behavior does not alter or affect the on-field behavior in the least. You are accept-ING the game, which means you find it accept-ABLE. Nothing changes until you get out of your seat, run onto the field, stop the game by dumping the water coolers over the coaches' heads.

      Denninger's equivalent of dumping the water coolers, something which stops the game but isn't particularly damaging, is a general strike.

    5. If I had built a radio and put it on the air knowing it was bad, of course I'm responsible, but I don't see how that relates to this.

      An exchange ago I said, "where would you get the idea this is acceptable?", and you replied, "From you. You are acceptING it, therefore you find it acceptABLE. " But I wrote this piece specifically because I'm not accepting it. You don't see that? What part of me calling them scumbags makes it sound as though I like them?

      Likewise, in the case of the football game analogy, how am I accepting the behavior on the field? The teams are violating their agreement with me as a ticket buyer, if I bought one expecting a fair game and it wasn't. How does being cheated out of what I bought constitute accepting it?

      In this case, Robert Creamer and his co-workers are responsible, and no one else. If you're implying that anyone who votes is responsible for these scumbags violating laws, I can't agree. The only people responsible for violating laws are the people who violate them. People are responsible for their own actions, not others'.

    6. The rule-abiding football team is responsible for their choice to continue to play instead of walking out and leaving the crooked game in protest. The rule-appreciating audience is responsible for their choice to continue to watch the contest on the field instead of taking their money back from the ticket counter.

      Creamer is responsible for his evil acts. Law-abiding voters are responsible for allowing the political game to continue by voting and paying taxes and not demanding a prosecution. If you didn't vote and didn't obey, Creamer wouldn't have the opportunity to act bad. You are an accessory to his crimes.

      Elements: In some jurisdictions, an accessory is distinguished from an accomplice, who normally is present at the crime and participates in some way. An accessory must generally have knowledge that a crime is being, or will be committed. A person with such knowledge may become an accessory by helping or encouraging the criminal in some way. The assistance to the criminal may be of any type, including emotional or financial assistance as well as physical assistance or concealment.

  5. My retirement plan is to get James O'Keefe's to let me buy a $1,000,000 life insurance policy on him payable to me. I suspect one day soon he will die in a high speed crash or found in Fort Marcy Park with two bullet holes through is head in an apparent suicide.
