Cancelled Then Or Now?

One pf the most famous post-founding speeches, delivered on a battlefield by Abraham Lincoln, declared the world will not long remember “what we say here,” but it “can never forget what they did here.”

“Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth upon this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.”Gettysburg Address, 1863.

Wait a minute there, are you telling me that was all a big lie and, at least until recently contested by Black Lives Mater anyway, is still a lie?

Again, I ask, I just wonder when and at what cause would the Left be proud of America? It’s a really simple question. What would it take, since they are not currently proud of America?

Price or cost of that anyone?

Lincoln went on to highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

A new birth of freedom? But Leftists have criticized even the motivation for our country. Why would they believe Lincoln? That’s just more rhetoric propaganda to them.

How much different that speech would have been if it were a concession speech on a Confederate victory: “Sorry, boys, it was all in vain but I can assure you we tried.” But no, Lincoln referred to the birth of the country and this “new birth” – as a further consecration of that original dedication and purpose.

Now then, about this current state of our cultural affairs
.

Oh, Lincoln waited for Black Lives Matter to come along to call him out by correcting it all. He knew they would. Of course Lincoln was wrong and just did not do it the right way. The poor soldiers who fought the war, then, were highly misguided of the entire purpose.

So what do we have some 150 years later? The BLM movement. It has attracted a crowd of attention. People have allied with it and their perception. Just call them “the minders”.

Now what I see on the streets is a whole lot of people who signed on to BLM and have made a choice for which there is no recovery. Without hesitation, they’ve all gone lockstep with something that many probably don’t even understand. Mob rule is not pretty. They would rather have that than even democracy.

They have lent themselves to a revolution to rip this country apart. And they are about to reap the fruits of it. On one hand, the BLM dismisses what was done in the Civil War, while calling forth their own counter-revolution to undo the first revolution. Without giving much thought to the consequences of their action. On the other hand, they misinterpret the original conception of the country.

But Lincoln should have clarified that, to anyone hearing or reading it, both the intent of this nation and the civil war itself. One would think.

“Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war.”

What he admitted there is that this was a test for the survival of that consecration. It was bloody. Now 150 years later, Leftists and the BLM are ripping away at it, asking if we can endure their mobocracy of disdain for it? Or will it too be cancelled in the end?

But then I think Lincoln knew something about the Cancel Culture.

Securing Liberty

…”That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.” — DOI

That one beautiful sentence of the Declaration of Independence best encompasses the ideal purpose for our government. It explains the philosophy of the Republic.

But the scariiest thought, then, is what secures that government? Anyone riddle me that.

On this 4th of July, at the Mount Rushmore celebration with President Trump, South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem’s speech contained two words which stood out. Together she used the words “freedom and law.” I know it is three but using those two words combined seemed odd and I don’t remember anyone using them together just that way.

The point is we need both or we have anarchy. Much as we love freedom, we also need law. Government’s very purpose is to secure our rights, or liberty. She didn’t say that, I did.

Our laws are bound by way of the Constitution. Our Constitution is the supreme law of of the land. It sets our government but what actually anchors government is the people — “the consent of the governed.” That is where government “derives” its powers.

The Trial On American Culture

Some people might find this fascinating while others might think it is old news. Though I promise it is interesting how it all comes together in the present, in a unique way that might make more sense than what is happening daily in front of our faces .

It’s no secret I’ve been in religious battles from way back. I’m not writing a book here so I will be brief on details. I’m not lecturing anyone either. Those issues and battles may turn some people off. I hear that. But there is sort of the point: it does turn people off.

Allow me to explain about others like me who were engaged in those religious liberty issues by working all sides of the Constitution and our God-given rights with passion.

What is most interesting here is the opposition to our views — I mean the left or hard Left. They had a venom that defies description. All things were on the table. They used everything they could muster to try to knock down any Christian arguments or concepts.

They claimed to be big on freedom like that phrase “freedom from religion”. Within their perspective contained all the rights and freedoms they could find to oppose you. In fact they claimed to be real freedom zealots who just did not want anyone shoving Christianity, or its views, down their throats. Never take Leftists at their word.

So they were supposedly advocates for virtually any freedom, from thought to reason, to first and even acknowledging some second amendment rights. They were not against your freedom, but it had to be hospitable to their freedom and use of it. I won’t bore you.

The wider message was the more freedom the better. However, when it came to Christianity – since it is the only religion they were worried about — they were out to smear it any way possible. If they had to make things up, distort, lie, rip out of context; it didn’t matter what it took. They were out to destroy it as far as the public view anyway. There could be nothing left standing untouched, or unscathed. Scorched earth.

Now you should start to see where I am going with this. So any credible source or hero of Christianity was tarred and feathered. No credibility was to be left to them, whether it was a founder,a great Christian philosopher or writer. The Christian view was to be decimated in such a way no one would have any confidence, or very little. It was really meant to shake our faith. They didn’t want us to believe in it. Thus, question everything.

Sure they used lots of straw men. They fear-mongered about theocracy and projected that we were pushing it on everyone else. Of course it was the exact opposite; they were strategically pushing their hard-line theology on everyone else. It’s sneaky and deceitful.

They wanted nothing left but their view. Tear it all down. I say this because it was a perfect forerunner to what leftists are doing now. Remember: first they came for the Jews, but I didn’t care…. Then they came for the Christians, but I didn’t care. And a lot of people didn’t care about those arguments at the time. Who is going to care?

Liberals, as I called them, said they were all about enlightenment or exercising all liberties freely, but take your faith back into the prayer closet. It should be kept from the public square. Certainly people are familiar with those perspectives.

What I am saying is it was the exact same methodology used then as is applied to everything today. Oh, one would have thought they were the biggest zealots for liberty then. Some real Ayn Rand and Thomas Jefferson or Thomas Paine fans. Right!

Flash forward, now leftists are smearing everything and everyone in history. America just has bad roots. It is stained with blood, etc. Well, you can hear it all everywhere.

Everything is rotten in America. Thou shall have no pride in it. A pox on traditions, too.

But that was the same thing they did to Christians, especially strong ones. Leftists wanted to knock it down at least until no longer functionally influential. And preferably until you were beaten enough to stop fighting. So roll over and let them define, redefine everything in culture and America.

Now we see that was only a rehearsal for what they are doing on a larger scale today, It is the entire country they take issue with. There is no doubt about it. And they don’t want anything good to be left unscathed by their wrath for the country or its history.

In doing so, everything great and good about America is to be defamed or destroyed. No heroes or good history. Everything was bad since its inception. In fact, it was founded on lies and evil. Now you see the similarities, almost verbatim as if planned. But if you heard their rhetoric then, or 20 years ago, it feels like déjà vu mixed with voodoo now.

Destroy Christianity and its moral underpinnings, first. But if you cannot destroy it, then at least destroy people’s faith in it. Leave them no comfort.

Next, do the same thing to the entire fabric of the country. Create distortions, divisions and disagreements. Make everything seem questionable. Throw basic reason under the bus. Then destroy people’s confidence in it all and our foundation. After all, nothing can be salvaged or remain above the watermark. Only their useful bureaucracy.

Does it start to make sense, with all the statues being torn down? Every founder or notable person has tar on them. Every one. Bring out only the bad side of everything in America. This works on people how? Well, it tears down what you thought you held in high regard. Turns out that nothing can be held in esteem. All of it was a lie, or so their mantra goes.

Coincidence, I don’t think so. Now everything is so politicized, meaning nothing is left un-politicized., Well, because all is subservient to their radical ideology. And it is an anti-American, anti-Christian ideology. (commie is more like it)

Now they even get reinforcement aid from some left-wing Christians who are fully on board with this social justice war-gaming, which is only an extension of this ideology. (Liberation theology) Driven more by what it doesn’t like than what it likes because it respects almost nothing except power – political power to propel its evolution.

That is the shortest summary I’m able to give and still get the point across of the sinister nature to it. But I think knowing that makes a much clearer picture about what is taking place. Rather than just being blindsided as to what is going on or why.

The next time Democrats or the Left lectures us about “this is not who we are,” this past is who they still are. So remember we know exactly who they are – or what they are not.

The Bottom Of The Empty Barrel

There is a point you will never here on lamestream media. It’s actually profound but I am not going to give it away in a few words. Please read the whole context rationale for it. Pity a thousand words were necessary but could easily have been three.

We know the George Floyd case and I don’t need to repeat all the details. Yes, again, horrible and shouldn’t have happened. I’m outraged.

And that supposedly set the latest sequence of events in motion. You know the arguments, police brutality, structural and systemic racism. They’ve assembled endless marches. It would be interesting to know who is doing all the organizing and funding. But never mind that. We have a bigger issue at hand.

Now we are told that practically everything we do is racist, or race-based. They say we have to deal with that; so they get people apologizing for something they didn’t even do to try to appease race hustlers. However, I hate to tell the kneeling do-gooders, it isn’t going to help you or them. That will not solve anything in the end, if they don’t want it solved.

It is just placating them.

Here is example one: if someone who is white has a child today, no matter how you raise him/her, in 18 years or so they will be considered privileged and blamed for being part of the systemic white racism prevalent in this country from its inception.

How’s that for a charge? And nothing you can do will change what he/she is: a white, privileged part of the long problem. I mean how do you explain or prove you are not? That’s the point, it doesn’t matter. And you can be branded as racist even if you do nothing racist. Okay, put that aside now. Though it’s probably an inevitability on this course.

Now we look at reforms they claim are needed. There is naturally police reforms since that seems to be their biggest priority. Blame cops and change all these procedures. You know those, I am not going to list them here. They are not crucial to the point.

The Left and the protestors already told us the problem is systemic racism, so pervasive that it is oozing out of every institution or economic sector in this country – everywhere. And a police reform is going to fix all that? No. But then they will tell you all the other changes we need to make to correct it, starting with us getting on our knees to apologize.

I get a little upset how all the onus and phony questions are always aimed at us. It’s a gotcha game that, even if you participate, you are designed to lose every time. If you play it their way by their rules, that is. They don’t tell you that even if you make all these changes and reforms that guess what? It will still be called systemic racism and you will still be a witting or unwitting participant in it. Because that is the only possible outcome.

Maybe that is a little bit hard and they may give you credit for all these changes while you made them. But it will not be enough in the end because the game doesn’t stop there. Nice try but we will have more work to do. (not that we aren’t now making strides) That’s why kids born today or tomorrow will be blamed in 20 years for being accomplices to all past and present problems and grievances. Yes, there will be another generation of leftists around to make sure that generation are held responsible for it, too. It is perpetual.

Leftists’ love for country is inherently contingent on them getting what they want.

Notice all along it is they who run the show and narrative on all this? No coincidence. You cannot have anything to say because there is nothing you can say. The whole thing continues on and never goes away. I don’t have to explain that. And they will be sure to keep it all alive. But the why is important though.

Example number 2: suppose I buy a house that needs a lot of repairs. The question is why would I go to all the trouble of making extensive plans for it, if I already decided I am gong to level it and build something else in its place? I wouldn’t, it would seem pointless if that were my real plan and I already decided.

What I am saying is that these people, predominately the leftists and Democrats with the go-along dupes, have already decided what they want. These reforms or changes aren’t it. They really want a brand new system, new country and Constitution. The old one is not in the cards, in fact, it isn’t in the game at all.

So we are only appeasing them on the highway to utopia, in their minds, while privately debating over a new foundation layout. But they will never be happy because they want a whole new system. Actually, they want this one to be so flawed they have to change it. That is at the heart of most problems. They tell us.

The other thing they want, in the meantime, is to use the perceived flaws and problems for political gain to increase power. Election fodder. Crises are “opportunities,” they all tell us. Pelosi boasted that she only sees all these crises as opportunities. So that is what all this is about in the end – political power.

Now that we established those basics, there is just one thing left. No wonder they aren’t happy and will not be satisfied? Since they are always posing gotcha questions to us, I have a very important one to ask the Democrat Left. It is the holy grail of questions.

What will it take for them to be proud of America? Would there be any reforms possible to make them proud of America? Oh sure, they are capable of some short-term pride when they are in the White House or control everything. Even that is temporal and condition based. The Left only have pride in an agenda.

Actually the only thing they have pride in are politics. That political pride remains. Quite literally it puts politics above the country. They aren’t capable of being proud of the country – systemic racism or not. They have no attachment, emotional or otherwise, to it. They dropped that long ago. Their agenda is a new country, a new society. The whole idea is not to have any pride in this one.

So there is the bottom line question to it all: Will they ever be proud of America…. and what would that take, if even possible? No reforms can spawn that.

This is the question for the Democrats, socialist left and all the rest. I’m sticking to it.

As much as they’ll always pledge to get to the bottom of it, we must never and can never get to the bottom of an empty barrel.

You’ve probably heard that pride usually comes before the fall. But in this case, it is a lack of pride that spells the cause for the country’s fall.

Obama’s Famous Byline

During Obama’s two terms, they had a catchall phrase for their critics. It was six words: “this is not who we are.” It was designed to shutdown their opposition.

Well, now we know and see exactly who they were: espionage, surveillance, spying on political opponents, politicizing all of government culminating in sedition, treason and even interfering in a presidential election. That’s who they are, the worst kind of people.

Any investigation of that corruption would have to be deep-sixed, never to be exposed to the light of the public. And there was a hell of a lot to hide.

Their first major target after Carter Page and Papadopoulos was General Flynn. They were rabid on that case because he could lead right back to Obama’s and Biden’s corruption trail. Via Flynn et al, we saw exactly what happens to the good people. We also know too well what happens to bad ones — they are still around.

It evolved, after the failed and corrupt Mueller special counsel probe, into a hoax conspiracy impeachment that was staged as part of the cover up for what the past administration did, or any investigation into it.

Yes, the 3 ½ year long coverup train planned on steaming right into and through the next election — after denying the results of the last one.

But along came, once again, a convenient pandemic named COVID-19 to isolate our fears to the immediate survival mode. It wiped everything else off the airwaves and concern list. Coronavirus was just what the doctor ordered after the failed impeachment. A chaser.

Just like a made to order diversion, Coronavirus was just the prescription to bury any investigation leading to Obama. And the economic benefit of the COVID shutdown would damage Trump. It would carry the damage they couldn’t mount.

Then, like a nightmare, Flynn came back to center stage with revelations of what the FBI schemed and plotted under Obama. Truth oozes out of the sores – one pore at a time.

So once again, “this is not who we are” is stood on its head showing exactly who they are. The collaborating dark arts of evil cannot cover up their coup forever. It leaks out.

Not to worry, though, the organ of free press was already pronounced DOA in 2016.

Division: stick a fork in it or just stick it

My, time really flies or does it? This week should tell anyone all they need to know about the current situation. Desperation and destitute.

  • The Super Bowl Sunday
  • Iowa caucuses go rogue.(results not clear till Friday)
  • Impeachment closing arguments.
  • State of the Union address
  • Pelosi’s meltdown and Democrats’ protest
  • Statements and impeachment vote in the Senate
  • Trump acquitted on articles of impeachment
  • Prayer Breakfast
  • Thursday, Trump thanks supporters and outlines this full-term coup
  • Friday clean out the NSC in White House (Vindman brothers fired)

And by Friday afternoon, Rep Debbie Dingell told CNN how divided we’ve become and that we need to unify the country. She said social media was so polarized and hostile.

But they just impeached and then tried to remove the president in a trial literally 2 days before. Now they’re lecturing us on unity? See a pattern here? Cause and effect.

The most divisive thing they could do to the country. How’s that for chutzpah?

They spent 3 and 1/2 years investigating the president and ripping the country apart — by overturning an election and rigging the next one, trying to get Trump off the ballot. Abolish the will of the voters. Now they want to complain about division. Right on schedule.

Give me a break!

But that is why you can never believe a thing Democrats say!
It is usually the opposite. All lies.

Welcome to the Grand TZ of Twilight Zones

In a strange and sinister plot, Democrats claim to be saving democracy while trying to destroy the Republic that made it possible.

They make a mockery of the very elections they claim to be protecting. With every chant about cheating in the election, they say the election and the results will be poisoned if Trump is allowed to stay in it. So cheat the election by impeachment.

These are people who did not accept the results of the last election hell bent on denying the results of the next one, before the first vote is even cast.

Where are you Rod Sterling? We have just entered the TZ of Twilight Zones. Chris Coons tells a CNN reporter that he thought Adam Schiff’s closing argument – to be generous – was “compelling and very forceful.”

It is a coup. They generally are forceful.

Democrats responded to the defense argument that it is an election year with months before an election, when people will decide. They claim this argument is ridiculous that you can’t impeach a president before an election. In fact, they say, the pending election is the reason he must be impeached and thrown out of office.

Rod, we could use you! Of course Democrats’ arguments sound forceful; it’s a coup!

Full-Court Press

I made the case a few days ago about the personal dichotomy but it goes much larger than that. In this vein you have a positive outlook while there is a volcano of negativity surrounding you constantly. It is the feeling of being bombarded from everywhere by constant negativity no matter what good you see happening. Wonder why?

Meanwhile, the left and its media comrades bash the president on every word they can. What he does in his policies not as much. Most of his policies have had positive outcomes and the fruits are all around us, for anyone who wants to see them. But those never get the attention in the airwaves. Instead we are treated to a cascading critique over every little word he speaks. When Trump zooms in on the fake news, they cry foul and abuse.

Media delivers the goods. They are judge, jury, and executioners — the Full-Court Press.

A perfect example of this playing out was on Don Lemon this week. He had notoriously vile Rick Wilson, Republican turned Republican hater, commenting on the nature of Trump and his supporters. Wilson turned it into a mockery diatribe of dumb, redneck supporters who succumbed to Trump’s every word and command. Lemon busted out laughing to the point of being out of control like it was a comedy show. So they all had a barrel of laughs at the expense of mocking Trump voters.

The following night, Don Lemon’s focus of attack was at Trump for picking on the media. How cruel it was. Press is again the biggest victim. It’s a little hard to feel sorrow for the villainous media when they attack people for voting a certain way.

But when they play that victim card, they demand everyone’s sympathy. And they demand your anger is turned to blame Trump and his nefarious supporters. It’s our fault. How can media be the real victims when they regularly attack voters in prime time?

Never mind the voters and people across the country they insult every day. This creates a nice flashpoint every time they choose to ignite it. In typical faux fashion, Lemon came on the next night, before playing the victim card, claiming he was not laughing at the people but at the joke. But the entire joke was us and the punch line was very clear…. us.

Even though the House Managers put on their slipshod impeachment trial in the Senate, the media treated it with the solemn certitude of a State funeral, complete with nonstop coverage and commentary. But it was a joke. The whole thing was like a comedy sketch with no off ramp that eventually has to end. Everyone knows it but can’t find an exit.

And when it did end, with the predictable results, they poo-poohed their own play as a dismal failure because it did not achieve the desired end. We could have told them that. But instead of blaming their own lousy script and collective performance, they lashed out by attacking the audience for failing to deliver success to them.

No one could convince them their work was only a mockery of the process; they refused to listen. So they created a narrative in the House that didn’t sell in the Senate — and they even went about that deviously. They still want you to see them all as victims.

Did they really think they could sell their creation on perception and glitter? Fool’s gold.

Judgment Call

Time for a judgment call on the state of impeachment sham. That is on the common perceptions of some notable people.

I’m not buying the Andrew McCarthy summation or drinking that juice. He now suggests on Fox that even if you assume the conduct in question happened, it does not rise even close to the level of impeachment.

Then he asserts it is bad behavior etc. or improper but it is not impeachable.

I don’t agree with most of that. Assuming the conduct of what is being described, and that is a stretch, it is not necessarily “bad” conduct. Controversial – yes. But bad? No. It sure is nowhere in the impeachment field. I don’t qualify asking for an investigation or looking into possible corruption as bad or malicious behavior.

Remember, Andrew McCarthy is also the one who stated at the onset of Russia fever that with those accusations there would have been enough grounds to open an investigation and it would bear out innocence. But worth investigating was the verdict.

No, there were not grounds for that investigation. It was a cooked up scheme to force an investigation – and subsequent coup. Now he says, just based on the numerous facts we know, it would be wrong or bad behavior to ask a foreign government to look into it.

Hogwash.

Extortion of Process

Let me explain just one part of how the Democrats plan to use the impeachment process to serve their political ends. You know the masters of scamming the process.

It goes like this, as described by one Democrat Senator to CNN: first the Democrats put on their case. Then president’s team puts on the president’s defense.

But unlike in a regular trial, there is no opportunity for the House Managers’ rebuttal to Trump’s defense. What to do? Then the questions period closes out the process.

So — this is the great part — according to the Senator, Democrat Senators will use their super nifty questions period that follows to do that partisan rebuttal work against Trump. What part of this process is not politicized, hedged and schemed by Democrats?

And you know what that will look like. All the activist Democrats, House Managers and Senators, will operate at peak collective strength, using their corrupted and highly partisan process for maximum political benefit. All hands on the coup deck.

Yet all the while they chant the words “Trump is cheating in the next election.” You cannot even trust the results of the 2020 election with Trump in it. Wow, now they’re already undermining the next election 9 months ahead of it. Only to save quid-pro-quo Joe.

Our elections are very frail if just the inclusion of Donald Trump can destroy them.

After all they don’t care about the amount of damage they do to the country. not at all. The only thing that matters is their political objectives. Come hell or high water….and it will.

Last Word Against Impeachment

The speech not given. A parting shot.

Madam Speaker, I rise at this time to voice my opposition to this impeachment sham.

Irony is all around this sham. It is a dark irony.

I find great irony in the fact that the same body with the power to declare war was also given the power to impeach a sitting president, among its other solemn duties.

What if they use all those other powers designated to Congress the same way they are using this power to impeach? Rush to impeach. Fundraisers, storm the gates of the capitol. Impeachment rallies. “Impeach the MF-er!” What if the same hyper-partisanship was used in a rabid rush to war? Even for Democrats, this a new low.

Future voters, preserve our democracy, voting for children and posterity are their talking points. Nothing is further from the truth.

Do they tell their children in future generations that this was the day they stood up to overturn the election of the people? This was the day they had to act to subvert the will of the people. “We had to act.” This was the day the results of an election no longer mattered.

This was the opening salvo in the war on democracy.

You hear the same old tired Democrat platitudes “what is he hiding?”…”what is he afraid of?” Now it is time to ask them the same questions.

What are they afraid of…. what are they hiding? They are trying to hide this charade of a coup they’ve orchestrated and been engaged in since even before this president took his oath of office and assumed the office.

What they are afraid of is the will of the people. They keep on polling with the same results. Now they’ve just decided to go to war with democracy.

They are afraid the same president will be reelected again in 2020. This is only a partisan political hit job, like all the rest of their long drawn out plot, to either unseat the president or prevent him from getting reelected. So they’ve gone to war against democracy, again.

I find it ironic too that the organization founded in the aftermath of President Clinton’s impeachment screaming to “Move On” is the same group now organizing rallies lobbying the left to impeach this president. Isn’t that rich?

So Move On runs to the street organizing rallies with chants of “no one is above the law. The president is not above the law.” But what law; what law are they talking about?

Protecting democracy? They strategized this moment since the last presidential election to subvert democracy. Less than one year before the next election, they must take it out of the hands of the people to let them know Congress not the people will pick the president.

“We must act,” they say. They must act to prevent the president from using his power and getting reelected in 2020. They’ve moved up the date of the election to now.

And they trying to shroud this act of democratic defiance in an excuse that they are doing this for the people, to “protect democracy.” That they are doing it for national security? The only threat to our national security is this attempt to subvert the will of the people.

We all watched for years in the UK as countless lawmakers tried to tell people their votes didn’t matter. They do the same thing here.

But ask yourself, what are Democrats afraid of? What are they trying to hide? The answer is simple, they are afraid of we the people, us. They are hiding their entire anti-democratic agenda against the American people. They are hiding their coup and its fruition.

In fact, everything they have done is a part of the cover up for what Obama and our government did to interfere in the last election. Sure, they failed to prevent Trump from winning but they aren’t done. That cover up for what they did continues.

It is not about what did they know and when did they know it? They have known it all along. They were complicit in the biggest attack on our democracy in history, a bloodless coup. When? They started it from before he was even elected. They were so deep in it by election that even if they wanted to, they could not have stopped. It is a war against democracy. They planted the seeds, fertilized it, then weeded out anything that stood in their way of reaping the rewards of overthrowing the president. (by any means)

Hyper-politics and policy disagreements should not be the cause for impeachment.

But like its power to declare war, once used you cannot put that Genie back in the bottle. You can shout “we didn’t come here to impeach” from the roof of the Capitol. It doesn’t matter. You invoked it while feigning some Churchillian passion as you attempt to overturn an election. This is not what democracy looks like!

Democrats worry about foreign influence in elections. Say hello to your friend, Ukraine.

And so the Forgotten Man limps on still… in an all too real metaphor.

 

I yield back….

Slipshod Impeachment Phraseology

Phrases for slipshod impeachment echo through congress after weeks of impeachment inquiry. Then get repeated with stunning frequency

Democrats bandied about catch phrases in weeks of impeachment inquiry. Some are just cute and others even stupid. Here are a few of the classic gems or their paraphrases:

“We must save our democracy.”
“We must impeach the president to protect the 2020 election.”
“It’s about interference in our elections”
“We are defending the Constitution.”
“No one is above the law.” (what law?)
“This is not a rush to judgment, it is a rush to justice.”
“We must protect our national security and preserve our democracy.”
(a little late on that one)
We must impeach him for what he might do. We cannot take that chance.

But the cakemaker of them all is this one. First, adorn it with sober, somber, solemn, prayerful mood music. Then, self-righteously, they claim:

None of us came here to impeach the president.
“None of us came to Congress just to impeach this president.”

Wrong. Yes they did.

They all came there to impeach the president and that is what they are doing. Whatever reasons they thought or said they came to Congress for are in the past. Memo to Dems:

You are there now to impeach the president. So while you can claim that wasn’t your original intent, (even if it was true) you were hijacked once there into that agenda.

In fact, it is now your only objective. Pelosi, Schiff and Nadler have determined the most important priority for this congress and before next election is to impeach the president.

So those pitiful words “I didn’t come here to impeach the president” ring so hollow after we’ve all seen the impeachment road show. Rides available daily.

Even one congressman, Hank Johnson, said representatives should be willing to impeach the president even if it means losing their elections. Sacrifice themselves. He said he would gladly impeach the president if it cost him his seat, and so should everyone else.

Impeachment fever, once they have it they can never turn back.

(*Prof. Jonathan Turley referred to it as slipshod impeachment in his testimony.)

Lessons From Impeachment Class

What did we learn from the last thunderous day of impeachment hearings? For starters that you have to have some malicious offense committed by the president equaling high crimes and misdemeanors. But Democrats merely claiming to be offended by the president or what he does is not grounds for impeachment.

We learned that Democrats and their media arm have become so successful with their talking points that they get back fed into Deep State bureaucrats. Those same talking points can now ooze from witnesses in hearings to impeach the president.

Fiona Hill wasted no time rolling out those Democrat talking points in her prepared remarks and then later even brought in more to cover her testimony.

Her written testimony contained the canards that Ukraine was a conspiracy theory. She insisted one could only say Russia meddled in the 2016 election. Why is it so necessary to dismiss, deny and ignore Ukraine interference in 2016? I think we know why. Everything damaging to them must be labeled a conspiracy theory and denied.

Then she went for the Democrat talking point trifecta. Any mention of George Soros, or his powerful political influence is now an anti-Semitic attack. So it’s an easy way to cover up Soros’ influence by calling criticism or anyone who mentions Soros ant-Semitic.

I could not believe an academic of her caliber would be reduced to using cheap talking points of the radical left. Shut down your critics by ridicule.

Then she uses old anti-Russia tropes to shutdown criticism. That’s as good as Hillary and DNC: label any political opponents Russian agents.

Right on cue with that talking point, she asserted that some members of the Republican committee denied ANY Russian meddling in 2016. Schiff further repeated that denied “any” influence charge later. But then she is a master of hearsay, too.

The only good news seems to be that this was apparently Schiff’s last day of scheduled impeachment hearings. And he is unhappy the will of the people is not with him.

Devin Nunes summed it up in his closing. “Dems got caught” in “A carousel of accusations.”

Defining Democracy Down

The left is on the fast track doing whatever they can to define democracy down. It’s interesting how it doesn’t matter that Trump is a duly elected president. But he has never been not under investigation. (sorry for the double negative)

Democrats really care nothing about the democracy of elections. All they care about is their political agenda, even when it means undermining democracy with a coup, or daily muddying up the definition of democracy.

They don’t care about the people’s will or our agenda, voiced and confirmed at the ballot box. The only thing that matters to Democrats is interrupting and overturning the last one.

The people can take a back seat to their demands. Never mind the USMCA trade deal. To hell with fixing real problems or sorely needed oversight. Out of control bureaucracy, intelligence, and abuse of power mean nothing to Democrats.

Sunday, Speaker Pelosi was virtually trying to chase Trump out of the White House, saying that “at some point Richard Nixon cared about the country enough to recognize that this could not continue,” She said President Trump was an “imposter.”

Remember that next time she lectures on the finer points of democracy, when she is assuring us of her Constitutional duty. She said:

“This week, we will hear from additional witnesses who will courageously expose the truth and defend our democracy.”

Defend democracy? Sadly, they nor anyone else can defend democracy from Pelosi. Who could? Her assault is relentless. Cancel our democracy. It’s the politics, stupid.

Impeachment Irony

I’m sorry, Democrats, but you want to impeach President Trump over Ukraine. You could hardly ask for more foreign interference in elections and the politicization of government or foreign policy than that.

Yeah, that looks like Ukraine is the most important thing to voters and a reason to try to overturn an election. What they are really trying to impeach is the will of the people.

Then Democrats can’t even conduct their DNC impeachment on any honored process established over decades. Who needs to follow established procedures?

Sure, the Constitution says it right there: The president can be removed “on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors [*or foreign communication Congress finds objectionable].” — there revision complete.

Ukraine On The Brain

One thing that American people should be outraged about is any idea that the success of the current US president – indeed future of the US – should be determined by Ukraine. Not to mention our election of a president and the next one.

But this is the exact situation the Democrats have put America in. Ukraine is now at the center of all that. We should be appalled but many people are cheering this on.

We just annexed the future of America to a former satellite country of the USSR. One that has had its share of corruption and is engaged in its own sovereign preservation. Something Trump wanted to look into.

But back in 2016, radical Democrats put Ukraine smack into the center of their conspiracy theory (coup in the making) by DNC’s and Democrat operatives’ collusion with it in US election politics. Ever since they have been covering for that fact. Now they have brought Ukraine straightforward into their current goal of trying to impeach the POTUS.

I can’t believe this is anything the people would care about, with regard to choosing our president, except for remote hopes of working with Ukraine to eliminate corruption. But that corruption in Ukraine is where Americans’ concern stops.

It is hard for me to believe that people want Ulraine to determine our present president or our future one. That would seem absurd. But apparently that is the road Democrats are going down and what they believe. Their whole impeachment now rests on a corrupt country waging a battle to protect itself from Russia’s covetous hand.

If Democrats do not want foreign meddling or interference in our elections, they sure have a real funny way of showing it. If successful, it is hard to imagine there will not be some heavy consequences for that. Imagine the people who were obsessed for two and and a half years with a myth of foreign influence in our elections, now are determined to once again inject foreign interference into our politics.

Do Americans fall for such a cheap plot? I don’t believe so. But radicalized Democrats are determined and invested in making that case for it.

Then they put an acting ambassador to that country at the center of their “resistance” case. So while Ukraine is resisting Russia’s military overtures, Democrats put that whole issue into the center of their seditious resistance against a sitting US president – even in congress. And they are etching Ukraine into US history by doing so. They have entered Ukraine into the congressional record in one of the most serious things congress can undertake in America, the impeachment of a president.

But make no mistake; they had put Ukraine in the center of election politics since the 2016 election. They continue to build on that plot right into their current seditious coup mission.

There’s a whole lot of shaking going on

Syria: Kurds, PKK, Asaad, Turkey, Isis, Russia. Put then all together and what do you have? A whole lot of shaking.

Washington: Trump, Pelosi, Schumer, Durbin, Rand Paul, Republicans, Democrats. Put them all together and what do you have? A mess. Did I forget media?

All these, of course, represent factions. We have factions in the USA. Certainly, then, you cannot expect people to be all on the same page. They all have their own interests, and their own ideologies. Now I’m not one for letting ideology, unadulterated, run all policy.

Sure I succumb to an ideology like everyone. But this idea that ideology is the be all end all would mean all one has to do is plug in their ideology to any given situation and voila, you have the solution. But it doesn’t work that way.

That would not require politicians or leaders but only an ideology everyone must adhere to. That sounds more like a communist China or other regime, sans the dictator who enforces it all. So the Communist Party rules in China, the Democrat Party rules here.

Some things you have to make the case for, some things you have to fight for. Indeed, some things may be impossible — that is outside the dictator to implement and force it. In the US, we typically wrestle with such things. Other regimes don’t have those “problems.”

Case in point, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer go to the White House to talk to Trump about problems in Syria. What do you think happens? Dems run out with their hair on fire, to the media, and say “the President had a meltdown”. Is any of all that predictable? Rather than just deal with an uncomfortable seat in the theater, Democrats would rather scream fire and run out. No, it isn’t proper but that is their predictable reaction.

But of course the only thing that Pelosi wants to deal with is her own caucus. She will immediately run out to fundraise off of it. Impeachment is actually the only thing on her caucus-craven mind. And how to guide that to a successful conclusion.

Damn the will of the people, damn 2016 elections, damn all immediate pressing problems, damn the volatile situation anywhere; full speed ahead on the impeachment train. Election 2020 is now the next destination. Ideology rules the sandbox.

Ghosts, Ghouls And Government

Ghosts, Ghouls And Everything Scary

Is it Halloween yet, when all the ghosts and goblins come out to scare us and tickle our fears? No. It is starting to look and feel like it though.

Trying to keep up with news, I learned something this week that did surprise me. I am a little embarrassed not to know we had four branches in our government. They are the Legislative, Executive, Judicial and the Whistle Blower Branch. Times change.

I do not yet know exactly what this Whistle Blower Branch does but I can see it has enormous powers – granted to it, or however it gets them. It seems like it could even trump all the other branches. I assume it was created by the Legislative branch though it has taken on a sovereignty of its own.

This is a murky area, what with definitions and powers constantly changing, so I want to understand as much as I can about it. That is not easy easy when they seem to rewrite rules and law on the fly the way Congress does. Or they just make it up to suite them.

I do know one thing, expect to hear more from this branch of government in the next year, say, before the election. It seems to have a lot to say about things.

On CNN, I heard David Gergen, who is the elf-anointed expert on Nixon, say what he thought should be done with whistle blowers. He thinks they should be put in the witness protection program and when testifying, they should do so only from behind a curtain in secret closed-door session.

We must take the utmost care and responsibility to protect them. (naturally reminding me of the old mob bosses) So they need protections from the government they are supposedly blowing the whistle on? And we know how scary that government really is and the mob tactics they use. Are there a few insinuations here that seem slightly disturbing?

Well, mainstream media has been comparing the Trump administration to the Mafia a lot recently. They might be a little late to that party. I was drawing direct parallels between the mob and Obama’s administration for eight years to deaf ears. All that was considered conspiracy stuff.

But now they have an actual mob boss in the White House, according to media, and everyone seems so hyper-concerned about it. Yes, it sends chills down my spine just thinking of Trump controlling the White House. Shutter the thought. I knew it would come to this haunting place as soon as Donald Corleone was elected president. It was a given.

Now we need this Whistle Blower branch, which I was completely unaware of, more than we ever needed it, so we can find out what the mobsters are doing and rat them out. Get the goods on them.

About those protections.

So David Gergen floats the protection idea with the super-secret model. That would certainly add even more to the drama in Congress right now. You know, the Whistle Blower as the ultimate hero, able to swoop in and out to catch the dirty guys red handed to protect the public from the unscrupulous…. big bad federal government. And, again, in secrecy, to swoop back out to private life. All the while protected by G-men.

Whew hoo, the left never saw that much danger from the federal government before. But then we never had someone like Donald Corleone to fear in the White House before. (Clintons and Obama didn’t trip their trigger but Trump is the prototype of a mobster)

They found a statute from 1778 that was the first whistle blower statute. which says anyone who knows about any government malfeasance must come forward to report it. Well that would be interesting to see today.

With all the protections possible that Gergen talks about, it presents a new scenario to consider. Congress has taken this whistle blower over a presidential phone call with Ukraine to a new level. They started an impeachment process right away, defining it as a smoking gun. We are at the intersection and the Impeachment light is green.

Theatrics and Drama

Two things you can always count on from Congress are theatrics and drama, especially when the subject matter involves any other branch of government but their own. Just once, I would like to see them on truth serum, or like at an AA meeting, where they have to admit what they have done to get a fix for their power addiction, in open session to the public. Oh, that would be ripe for drama.

So with all this emphasis on the Whistle Blower – and his/her protections – it is now conceivable how a whistle blower can potentially take down a sitting president or even the government. And do it from behind the viel of a curtain, under witness protection, in a secret session. And on second-hand information too. Under oath adds legitimacy.

A whistle blower has a lot of power then. Is it responsible to give them all that power? You know, individuals, like members of congress, can operate with their own motives and agenda. But what are the people supposed to think of such an arrangement?

For years I have wondered where any whistle blowers were under Obama. We didn’t have them. Where were they under Hillary in the State Department? What about in the Justice Department Obama politicized?

Out of that severe vacuum now comes a whistle blower, apparently a CIA employee, to come out and finally must blow the whistle over a phone call Trump had to Ukraine. Seems to me there is a whole lot more going on with this Whistle Blower than a phone call. And a lot more he/she is worried about.

Have we come this far that we can have a whistle blower step in to prevent an investigation? Is that what whistle blowers are supposed to do? So by blowing the whistle they can participate in the massive Deep State cover up that has been going on for years.

Of course that means that we do have this fourth branch of government. The whistle blowers can then collaborate as well with media and congress. Can they shape our policies, government or its actions, even from outside of it, while hiding under anonymity as a Whistle Blower?

Rights Under Seige

I get miffed in this gun control fever, even by some 2nd amendment supporters. I suppose it is an insult. Attaching the words common sense to it means nothing to me.

This debate – as they call it – rages on over gun control. But it will never end with the left; and there are no limits.

To be perfectly honest, I’m getting real tired of people or government trying to redefine what our rights are. That is the very heart of the problem.

It cannot be up to the current crop of politicos in office, or the climate in Washington, even who is president, to determine what our rights are.

If it is up to the current political climate, then at one time our rights will be defined one way and under different leadership they will be defined another way. It will go from pandering to our rights to debating how much restrictions or controls they can excerpt over them. I don’t want to live in a country like that. I don’t need a politician sucking up to me about preserving my rights. Or how only he/she will protect my rights.

We hold elections to determine who represents us, not as a referendum on our rights. Those are inalienable rights, so why are some people trying to make them conditional?

I just want them protected, as an obligation of the office they hold. It is not an arbitrary duty but some people make it one. I am not transferring authority over my rights.

On the other hand, I don’t want an endless diatribe on how much you are going to restrict or control my rights — telling us we need a national discussion on my rights. Why should their chief objective be to control, redefine and reinterpret our God-given unalienable rights? I’m sorry, it is beyond insulting and offensive. Don’t do me any favors.

I also don’t want our rights up to redefinition and reinterpretation every couple years. That is usurping them, not preserving and protecting them. It cannot be up to a few people, some politicians, or even a large group like the NRA to solely defend the 2nd amendment. It is ultimately up to the people.

My unalienable rights are not a bargaining chip for elected officials and fundraiser to line their campaign coffers. They swear an oath to protect and defend the Constitution, not to nullify it. It is a Bill of Rights, not a bill of suggestions.
