Forget Al Capone! Enter the age of political racketeers: THE BARACKETEERS!

Notorious Baracketeers

Racketeering is the practice, by a structured group, of operating an illegal, dishonest and fraudulent scheme or business (a racket). The practice is closely associated with organized crime, since both are conducted by groups.

Although racketeering exists in America today an even more insidious and repugnant "racket" has rapidly evolved in American politics from it's infancy of simply making promises (that won't be kept) to get elected into carefully planned and orchestrated LIES by candidates for office, elected officials and their appointees who are operating as a structured group (the Democrat Party). And who would you think deserves the credit for taking dishonest and fraudulent political practices and policies to levels never before imagined?

Why credit has to go to our Nobel Peace Prize winner, first black (well half black) American president, divider in chief and Messiah to the masses, Barack Hussein Obama, the first but not only Baracketeer of the 21st century.

That's right, Barack Obama has made his mark in history as THE BARACKETEER - A candidate for office, elected official and/or their appointees who engage in dishonest and fraudulent political practices and policies to gain and keep power. A more fitting legacy for his term in office will never be found.

Many criminal acts can be included in this category of Baracketeering, including theft and fraud against the government or individuals. The Government is victimized by Baracketeering democrat party policies that print money and run guns to Mexican drug cartels an coverups. Providing illegal services, such as Obamacare or gun trafficking, are also a form of Baracketeering.

Baracketeering also takes place among legitimate businesses or labor unions, where it is sometimes referred to as crony capitalism, and can include acts such as voting fraud and manipulation. One governor has declared that forcing Obamacare on the nation will make young men and women pay the price, reaching the point of being a felony toward them and their future. “That is a criminal act, from my perspective, to put that type of burden on them — to mortgage their future like that,” he added. “America cannot stand that.”

Ever wonder why the President never knows anything about what he dubs "phoney scandals"? Are we to assume he is...

 ........................?
........................?

Just like the mob and other entities involved in racketeering, Baracketeering has it's mob bosses and hit men. These individuals are appointed in various positions by THE Baracketeer or his henchmen and they are given power solely on the basis of their loyalty to The Baracketeer. The more willing they are to lie, conduct covert cover ups and protect the Messiah the higher they are promoted in the ranks, no matter how egregious their offenses may be to the republic or the American people. Their willingness to lie and especially lie about lying is worn like a badge of honor among their Baracketeering peers.

Caught Lying about Lying!

Published on Sep 4, 2012 Debbie Wasserman Schultz attacked The Examiner for 'deliberately' misquoting her, but she didn't count on them having audio

"The Low Information Voter"

36 Times Obama Said You Could Keep Your Health Care Plan

Should we tolerate Baracketeers as they lie to the nation, lie to every viewer's face in public?

  • All politicians lie - you have to expect this.
  • Americans need to make an example of Baracketeers by standing up to them any way we can.
  • As long as there are low information voters there will be charlatans (or Baracketeers) to take advantage of them.
See results without voting

Too many times to count Obama Promises To Lower Health Insurance Premiums by $2,500 Per Year

Of course baracketeers could not exist without their enablers. Just like Racketeers bribe the authorities and use every trick in the book from intimidation to murder to further their nefarious deeds, baracketeers are constantly conniving behind closed doors and with polling and focus groups to lie and manipulate the electorate, to control the media and go around every safeguard to tyranny in the law and the constitution. Their end, eventual tyranny and power justifies any means and the only credential necessary for advancement in this group, the Democrat Party, is that you are on board with their ends justifies their means.

Racketeers have been known to use their power or money to accrue support among the poor, the ignorant and the downtrodden. Many have been considered to be Robin Hoods of their day, taking from the rich to give to the poor. Not surprisingly, has THE Baracketeer mastered this technique politically by pushing forward the doctrine of "spreading the wealth," growing an electorate more and more dependent on government handouts and the cradle to the grave philosophy. Sadly none of this would even be possible if it wasn't for "The Low Information Voter", a phenomenon of the last 30 years technological surge which has enabled the dumbing down of our educational system, provided endless time and means for people to become self indulgent and uncommitted to their civic duty as voters to be well informed about candidates and issues. Without the low information voter the Baracketeers would fade into the sunset, and what a beautiful sight that would be!

Watch the two videos above right if you can bear to. Do you think for one minute that Obama would have been re-elected in 2012 if he hadn't lied to the American people at every chance about keeping your plan, your doctor or your hospital "if you liked them" and if he hadn't lied about lowering your premiums by $2500 (they actually went up by that same figure)? C'mon man, REALLY?

If he had not repeated those lies over and over again in 2010, 2009, 2008, he would not have been reelected. Those are blatant lies, because he knew.

But as if years of knowingly, calculatingly, constantly repeating the same lies about Obamacare to get re-elected, after he is re-elected, here is Obama at an Organizing for America event in November 2013 saying, "Now, if you have or had one of these plans before the Affordable Care Act came into law, and you really like that plan, what we said was, 'You could keep it if it hasn't changed since the law's passed.' So we wrote into the Affordable Care Act, you're grandfathered in on that plan. But if the insurance company changes it, then what we're saying

We can't forget Baracketeer Jay Carney, shades of "Bagdad Bob"?

Remember Sadam Hussein's Information Minister (aka 'Baghdad Bob')?
Remember Sadam Hussein's Information Minister (aka 'Baghdad Bob')? | Source

is they've gotta change it to a higher standard."

Bingo! He just lied about his lying! The trademark of a Leader in the Democrat Party. He never, ever said that. There is no video clip in existence of that ever being said by anyone! What he's not saying here is that the Affordable Care Act mandates the insurance companies to change all the policies by ordering that they cover more and charge more.The bottom line is he is lying about the lies he repeated and what he doesn't know is that he's admitting here it was never going to be possible for you to keep your plan.

Famous Baracketeers who are above the law.

Barack Obama - can't open his mouth without telling a lie while tramping on the constitution is second on his agenda only to golf.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz - Democrat Mob Boss of the DNC, caught on tape LYING about LYING and proud of it!

Harry Reid - well what can I say, senility is another Barcketeer prerequisite for leadership in the Democrat Mob.

So What? you say.

Well here is what - This country was not founded nor made great by the likes of Baracketeers and never in our history has this sort of activity been identified for what it is nor gone to this extreme and the thing Americans need to realize is they are at fault. They are enabling the Baracketeers to run this country into the ground. im-moralize it, demoralize it and fundamentally change it from the land of the free and the home of the brave into the land of freebies and the home of the knaves. (low info people, look it up)

I'm not going down the laundry list of THE Baracketeer's offenses in this hub for one can easily peruse his abuses all over the net - ( e.g. http://obamalies.net/) but instead of posting argumentative comments why don't we make this comment section a list of examples of Baracketeering by our elected officials. Key in on a "boss" photo and comment on him/her. Let's help Americans to greet this administration and the democrat party with the disgust they deserve and humiliate their behaviors as publicly as they daily humiliate Americans with their LIES.

Great hub as usual. I would expect nothing less from a guy who cut his teeth on Chicago style politics. To him, this is exactly the way politics are supposed to work. I'm not defending Obama, just saying this is how he was trained.

And then he gets elected and moves in with the biggest collection of horse thieves, hustlers, and con men ever gathered under one roof. It is likely they taught him their way of lying, cheating, and stealing, and he in turn gave them benefit of his Chicago tricks.

Overall, they were most likely glad to see one of their own kind elected to this highest office in the land.

Good point, Mike! But I always thought Chicago politics would never wind up in the white house. I probably left out a few other good points so I trust others like you will be "pointing" them out.

No, you didn't leave anything out. Had you tried to cover all of the sins on this administration, you would have been "over length" and Hub Pages would not have published your hub.


tsadjatko profile image

tsadjatko 3 years ago from maybe (the guy or girl) next door Author

Well Mike, let's get the list of Baracketeers started! I give you:

"Baracketeer Hillary Clinton"

Hillary Clinton came under increasing scrutiny for her story about facing sniper fire in Bosnia, one question that arose was whether she has engaged in a pattern of lying. The now-retired general counsel and chief of staff of the House Judiciary Committee, who supervised Hillary when she worked on the Watergate investigation, says Hillary’s history of lies and unethical behavior goes back farther – and goes much deeper – than anyone realizes.

Jerry Zeifman, a lifelong Democrat, supervised the work of 27-year-old Hillary Rodham on the committee. Hillary got a job working on the investigation at the behest of her former law professor, Burke Marshall, who was also Sen. Ted Kennedy’s chief counsel in the Chappaquiddick affair. When the investigation was over, Zeifman fired Hillary from the committee staff and refused to give her a letter of recommendation – one of only three people who earned that dubious distinction in Zeifman’s 17-year career. Why?

“Because she was a liar,” Zeifman said in an interview. “She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.” http://www.westernjournalism.com/hillary-clinton-f...

But of course to quote her own words of wisdom uttered in the coverup of her crime in Benghazi - "What difference does it make?"

Kind of like old Bill, "I did not have sex with that woman." Perhaps this lying just runs in the family?

Some are asking for lie detector tests for all candidates running for office. I'm not sure if that is to see if they are lying, or to see if they can lie without getting caught.


tsadjatko profile image

tsadjatko 3 years ago from maybe (the guy or girl) next door Author

Ole Bill - another Baracketeer of course, not as bad as "THE" Baracketeer but a KNOWN LIAR,

"Baracketeer Bill Clinton"

Bill Clinton, the 42nd President of the United States, was impeached by the House of Representatives on two charges, one of perjury and one of obstruction of justice, on December 19, 1998. Two other impeachment articles, a second perjury charge and a charge of abuse of power, failed in the House. He was acquitted by the Senate on February 12, 1999.

And then there was the famous bold faced lie expressed directly to the American public "I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky."

And lets not forget Hillary who was complicit in his lie blaming the whole affair on the "vast right wing conspiracy" in effect, just like DNC chair Wasserman-Schultz, LYING about LYING, a now proven and widely accepted Baracketeer strategy which insures perpetrators of it a permanent position of power in the Democrat Party.

Yes the Democrats are proud of their good ole boy, William Jefferson Clinton and especially his record of known lies - http://whatreallyhappened.com/RANCHO/POLITICS/LIES...

So compulsive a liar he is he even lied about being a vegan so he can talk about being a vegan http://dailycaller.com/2013/09/03/bill-clinton-pre...

You can't make this stuff up! Come on people, reveal the Baracketeers for what they are.

Old Poolman 3 years ago from Rural Arizona

tsadjatko - You could become a specialist on this topic reporting only the lies that have been proven to be lies. You could run through the ranks of our elected representatives and set up some sort of lie telling scoreboard.

I would suspect that Obama and his hired liar, Jay Carney, would top the list, but there would be some close contenders. Eric Holder does pretty well in the lie department, but not quite as well as either of the Clinton's.

Nancy Pelosi is just not smart enough to remember if she is lying or not, so I wouldn't use her as a hub subject.


tsadjatko profile image

tsadjatko 3 years ago from maybe (the guy or girl) next door Author

I don't know Mike, "Antsy" Pelosi may not be smart but she hears dead people (or most probably lies about hearing dead people). Spirits of suffragists Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Alice Paul spoke to her at the White House. - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i2W_TTcizWI

Remember, to qualify as a Baracketeer you don't have to be smart, you just have to lie and better yet then lie about lying all of which includes clandestine covering up of administration bungles, the IRS, Benghazi, fast and furious... The lies don't even have to be convincing. You just have to be willing to do it even though you are caught in a lie - all the better if you can lie that the right wing did it, whether it's Weiner blaming Carlos Danger on the right, blabbermouth Schultz blaming a conservative media, or Hi liar y blaming the vast right wing conspiracy.

They remind me of my children when they were little. Even though they had chocolate frosting all over their face they would deny getting into the cake. As far as I know, my children outgrew this blatant lying, but our representatives never did.

Did you hear about the emails John Boehner wrote to Harry Reid about not stopping the health care subsides for congress and their staffs? Even though he stood up and announced to the world that these subsides were a slap in the face to hard working Americans, he still wants his subsidy. I would think this action on his part borders on lying to us.

Mike, it is true, Baracketeers can be found on both sides of the aisle, however nothing compares with what goes on in the Democrat Party. Some Republicans yes, but they are like small town hoods compared to THE MOB which is the Democrat Party. Boehner didn't cause the death of 4 patriots or try to cover it up. Barack and Hil liar y did.

Speaking of crime, let's take a look at the DOJ. Now here dwells one of the biggest Baracketeers of this administration,

The legacy of "Baracketeer AG. Eric Holder"

Sixteen scandals:

One – Discriminatory Hiring Practices

Two – Fort Hood

Three – AP Surveillance

Four – DOJ Secretly Targets Fox News Reporter, James Rosen

Five – Marc Rich Pardon

Six – Weather Underground Pardon

Seven – Holder’s DOJ Threatens Free Speech

Eight – Hostility Towards Conservatives

Nine – Opposition to Second Amendent Rights

Ten – Treatment of Terrorists as Criminal Defendants Instead of Enemy Combatants

Eleven – Arizona Immigration Law

Twelve – New Black Panther Intimidation

Thirteen – Opposition to Voter ID Laws

Fourteen – Fast & Furious

Fifteen – Holder Purges References to “Radical Islam”

Sixteen – Islamist Outreach

tsadjatko - It is interesting that so far, the comment section of this great hub has been limited to just you and I.

Holder should have been run out of office way back up around number 3 on your list. I often wonder if Holder marches to Obama's tune, or is it the other way around?

When it comes to honesty and integrity, we have hit the absolute bottom of the barrel. I doubt we can go much lower than we already are. Just the violations of our Constitution committed by these two were enough to remove them from office, but nothing happened. It is like they have taken over the mob and everyone is afraid to challenge them on anything. We know that if challenged, they will play the race card almost immediately. But this card has been played for so long now that it is getting pretty ragged and not worthy of much attention.

Perhaps today someone else will drop by and give us their opinion on these subjects.

NO Surprise Mike, the liberals can't refute the truth and low information voters, well they're too busy playing video games, posting pics to face book or on their I phone.

And the conservatives - they know all this - I've just followed the tea leaves to where they lead, an organized political racket.

I always enjoy chatting with you though so it's a win/win.

There are things in this administration that outright baffle me. Totally ignoring the budget for five years, for example. and then accusing the other side of not being concerned about defaulting on the debt.

It has gone beyond belief.

Well, well... we still have a long list of Baracketeers to highlight - let's go on:

"Baracketeers Lois Lerner and Gregory Roseman"

IRS employees summoned to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee BOTH invoked the Fifth Amendment and refused to answer questions. WOW! That's a switch. Baracketeers who aren't willing to lie, or even lie about lying? They must want to get something out of this....like immunity? Immunity for what? Didn't Lois Lerner first say she did nothing wrong? Oh, but remember, Barcketeers don't think it is wrong to lie or to coverup...interesting. Lerner has not been telling the truth and will hide behind the Fifth Amendment. In the mean time, the president and the Democratic National Committee are planning their next move. http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2013/09/17/irs-corr...

Not surprisingly Baracketeer Lois Lerner Had a History of Harassment, Inappropriate Religious Inquiries at FEC ...perfect qualifications for working with this administration. http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/irss-lerner-ha...

Old Poolman 3 years ago from Rural Arizona

Aaahh, but rather than getting fired and going to jail, Lois has enjoyed a nice long vacation at full pay. Even better, she is now going to enjoy a nice retirement with full benefits. I guess at least for now taking the 5th was a good move on her part. Of course, we have no idea what she was told would happen to her if she opened her mouth. Perhaps she took the path of least resistance?

Clever Hub Page Tsad! Soooooo true. At first I thought it was a little over the top, but after rereading and thinking about it I think your take on this problem is too accurate. The Democrat Party is a political "racket" the way it's leaders run it. Like the Chicago "Mob", they look for and promote bad actors. Liars (any of them qualify on that count), tax cheats (like Charlie Rangle, Tim Geithner ) , perverts (Clinton, Wiener, Frank, Spitzer) you name it the whole party leadership is as insidious as the mob bosses in THE MAFIA and their reputations as repulsive to principled Americans. The problem is the media and the dumbing down of America's electorate has nullified any truthful assessment of our politicians and their appointees (henchmen). I'd be remiss if I didn't add a notorious Baracketeer to your comments list. How about who misled on Benghazi?

"Baracketeer, Ambassador Susan Rice"

Of course it was "THE BARACKETEER" who sent her out to lie but Susan Rice went on 5 TV stations with the white house talking points (LIES) about Benghazi and guess what! She gets promoted! How could she know she was simply the lying mouthpiece of Barack and Hillary? Does anyone expect her to verify what she is told to say to the American public? Gee, no way, THE BARACKETEER and his lackeys would never lie, would they? If you are a baracketeer it doesn't matter, like you say - the ends justifies the means, in her case win her "boss's" election at all costs.

Susan Rice is not a patriot but a traitor to all the principals that made this country great but she couldn't be fired because she was put up to what she did by the leadership so if fired they should be fired too. That's the catch, bad actors can only be promoted so the trail doesn't lead to the ones at the top. Time will tell and history will record that America was corrupted by the Baracketeers and their rackets. Great hub, "baracketeer" explicitly accurate!

Thanks dahoglund, Mike, and DTMB for the comments...maybe with time we'll get some more baracketeer additions, but given the amount of low information voters around I kinda doubt it - most don't know how bad the other actors in the Democrat party are.

I don’t think it would make a difference how many of them read this hub. They’re not searching for anything that doesn’t concern their immediate needs. Their focus is not investigation and inquiry and in most cases their acceptance of truth is whatever “common knowledge” dictates to them. They don’t want to think about anything that would upset their daily routine so anything contrary to their beliefs more than likely would be discarded as unsafe to their existence.

In reality liberals make racketeers look like the Boy scouts because they use the law as a weapon against the people. Of course, when the laws no longer serve their purpose they exert their will in other ways like executive orders, legal divination ie "a living constitution" or political blackmail.

"Well here is what - This country was not founded nor made great by the likes of Baracketeers and never in our history has this sort of activity been identified for what it is nor gone to this extreme and the thing Americans need to realize is they are at fault." If you praise the truth you can't allow any lies to tarnish your convictions. America is based on racketeering. Native Indians were expropriated and spoliated. Henry A. Wallace, just to quote one among others, was assassinated to avoid the presence of a real contestant among a uniform platform. The elite has always controlled the US. Why is it that your history books (if it is your point of reference) are different from mine and consequent our American history?


tsadjatko profile image

tsadjatko 2 years ago from maybe (the guy or girl) next door Author

So...you feel that your version of history is the same as what is happening with this administration and the democrat party today and therefore justifies them?

Seems to me your comments (even if true), have nothing to do whatsoever with my statement which you quoted and you are just another one of the America haters who love to jump at any excuse to disparage the greatest (in spite of it's miss steps) country in history.

The whole point of my statement is that a republic is no better than the people whom it serves when they continue to elect such charlatans.

No more conspiracy theories, please.


maxoxam41 profile image

maxoxam41 2 years ago from USA

What I meant is that you can't generalize with a false statement, by doing so you allow me to enter the breach and show you wrong. Exactly what I did.

No your version of America is trunked. You accept conveniently the good and forget its evil side. For you to be objective you have to point out both or at least not lie.

When you say "even if true" what do you mean? That, it is true and you accept it or that is true and you deny it. But in both case you can't say that it's untrue if you know your history.

And where is the conspiracy theory here? Do you have a problem with the reality and the truth?


tsadjatko profile image

tsadjatko 2 years ago from maybe (the guy or girl) next door Author

As I have already stated the whole point of my statement which you quoted ("This country was not founded nor made great by the likes of Baracketeers and never in our history has this sort of activity been identified for what it is nor gone to this extreme and the thing Americans need to realize is they are at fault") is that a republic is no better than the people whom it serves when they continue to elect such charlatans.

I made no false statements nor did I express any version of America other than the truth nor does that statement have anything to do with your babbling response.

"This country was not founded nor made great by the likes of Baracketeers" - totally true

"never in our history has this sort of activity been identified for what it is nor gone to this extreme" - totally true

"Americans need to realize is they are at fault "- totally true when they elect known liars and ideologues like Obama and his minnions whose primary qualifications are their willingness to lie and lie about their lying.

Your belief that the elite has always controlled the US and rewrites the history books is a conspiracy theory. Conspiracy theory is a theme of yours as I have perused your hubpages and they are full of lies and misrepresentations and conspiracy theory. Your version of "the truth" is unmistakably not the truth.

You my friend are way off topic here, you can spread your wacko propaganda somewhere else, but not here.
