William L. Garvin: Nobody Knows Nothin’!

Sergeant Shultz

From 1965-1971, HOGAN’S HEROES was a popular television series starring Bob Crane and a terrific assortment of supporting actors. The plot centered on a group of prisoners in a German POW camp during World War Two. The allied prisoners were headed up by Colonel Hogan who did his best to outsmart Colonel Klink, the camp commandant. One of the most memorable characters was the rotund Sergeant Hans Georg Schultz, played by John Banner. Schultz was an affable but inept prison guard who, whenever becoming aware of Hogan’s plans and schemes, adamantly proclaimed “I know nothing! I see nothing! I hear nothing!” Sergeant Schultz was the prototype for the Obama administration leadership team.

E-Cig Mania


I have to admit, I’ve been a smoker for number of years. Lately, a number of my friends have turned to electronic cigarettes. There seems to be a certain amount of “trendiness” to it. You can spend well over a hundred dollars on equipment and fancy-tasting liquids, but all I want is an alternative to smoking. The goal is to quit!

If you’ve had any experience with all the fancy stuff available, please weigh in.

Why Lie About Benghazi?

Burgess - Benghazi cloud

So, why would our illustrious politicians lie about Benghazi? Who, you say, IS Ben Ghazi? To all you low-information voters out there, Benghazi ain’t some guy, it’s a city in Libya.

In a nutshell, on September 11th of last year, (you remember the significance of that date, yes?) On 9/11 last year, there was an attack on our diplomatic offices in Benghazi, Libya. It occurred after we’d supported UN efforts to depose Muammar Gaddafi, who, by the way, WAS a guy. He was the dictator of Libya and was unceremoniously dispatched by Libyan rebels after they overthrew the Gaddafi government. That happened waaayyyy back in August of 2011!

I know, I know, that was a long time ago……..NOT!

The American Gestapo, aka the IRS


I am so disgusted with everything going on in Washington right now. I’m disgusted with the Obama administration and its continuing assault on our liberties. I’m disgusted with all things relating to Congress, both the House and Senate. What the hell are they doing there? They sure as hell aren’t representing “We, the People”!

Not only do we have to continue to watch the unfolding scandal of Benghazi, we have to beg the Speaker of the House to begin a special, select committee to investigate all there is to be found. Speaker Boehner sits in his office on Capital Hill and does absolutely nothing! Nothing! Not only is the guy a complete failure as a Speaker, he has no balls! He wields immense Constitutional power to reign in the Executive branch and he does nothing!

Now comes the latest scandal with the IRS. Excuse me, the American Gestapo. They are acting like partisan hacks for Obama! I know what’s going on. Over the last 20-30 years, we’ve allowed government jobs to become tenured at all levels. The liberal radicals have slowly infiltrated all levels of government. They just needed a Marxist crony in the White House, which they now have.

Unbridled radicalism and a Marxist fervor has unleashed them!

We know that sleeper cells of radical Islamists will lie in wait for years before blowing something up. Why do you think the same thing couldn’t happen with our “civil servants” in Washington?

The sad truth is that it already has. We’re just now starting to see the results!

William L. Garvin: Ostriches, Obfuscation, and Oscillation

“Little wheels spin and spin, big wheels turn around and around; Little wheels spin and spin, big wheels turn around and around.” Buffy Sainte-Marie

Finally! Some of the media ostriches have pulled their heads out of…the sand. It’s a miracle to behold! The White House press corps even asked the president’s press secretary some probing questions. In response, Jay Carney’s water gulping made Marco Rubio look refined. That’s what happens when you have no experience with challenges to your talking points or when a compliant media maven fawns over your every utterance.

The Roderic Deane Show: The Sequester Lie and the Soothsayers of Servitude

During the taping of the last Roderic Deane Show, my connection to BlogTalkRadio was lost as I wound down the broadcast. Fortunately, Ivan was able to capture the monologue and for that, I am truly grateful.

The next show is going back to Benghazi. This scandal deserves continuing coverage and you all know I’ve been following it from the get-go. How would you like to be a civil servant protected by an administration that leaves you to die for political gain?

While you ponder that question, enjoy my last monologue and ask yourself a question:

Why lie about Benghazi?
