And Many False Prophets Shall Rise

If you have any familiarity with the Leftist Playbook, you know that they have a ‘by any means necessary’ attitude towards being victorious in elections, even if it means rigging the contest.  Our Divine Julius Obamacus Caesar is a master of election hanky panky, having practiced the skill in his State and Federal Senatorial fights, as well as in other venues.

In politics there is the concept of the straw man candidate: in a two-man race, he is a third candidate put on the ballot in order to drain-away votes from one of candidates and is secretly put up by the other.  The concept is not a Leftist invention, it having being practiced since elections have been held in this country, but, since their philosophy is that everything is permissible in the gaining of power, they have willingly and without compunction used the method many times.

It appears the Democratic Left maybe using the technique to try and save Harry ‘The School Marm’ Reid’s sorry ass in Nevada.  From The Washington Post, Garance Franke-Ruta reporting, we learn:

…In Las Vegas, CNN’s Jessica Yellin reports, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is facing Republican accusations that he’s behind the emergence of a third-party Tea Party candidate on the ballot who could divide conservative voters and help him win reelection this fall.

The charge against Jon Scott Ashjian is being led by his would-be GOP opponents, such as Danny Tarkanian, who accuses him of having weak tea party ties. “Nobody in the Tea Party knows who he is. He didn’t know any of the principles of the Tea Party,” Tarkanian told the network.

GOP primary field leader Sue Lowden, a former Nevada Republican Party chairman who calls herself a Tea Party voter, also questioned Ashjian’s tea party bona fides. “I don’t know who this person is. He’s never been involved with anything that I’m aware of in this state,” she told CNN.

Reporter Franke-Ruta [don’t know whether to use Mr. or Mrs. or Miss] seems to conclude that there’s not much to the theory and so does the Las Vegas Sun.  But, as Stacy McCain puts it:

Gee, it seems like the only person who’s not questioning Ashjian’s credibility is . . . Harry Reid.

However much we know about Ashjian, I don’t think we know enough yet.

And also I think we have to keep an eye on the status of the $200,000 in back taxes Mr. Ashjian owes.  In the past, men have become straw men in order to have their problems ‘disappear’.

You may think I’m over the top and a bit paranoid in bringing this up, but I would just ask you to sit for a moment and ponder the past actions of the Left in such matters and to also consider their core philosophy of ‘by any means necessary’.  This situation bears close watching.

For…false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.
