How Should the House Respond to Rep. Omar?

March 7th, 2019 Viewed 47 times

I’m not sure why they thought that this wouldn’t be an issue. The children of Israel and the children of Ishmael have been at war for millennia, and show very little signs of stopping. Ishmael still envies Israel and they still dispute the land of their father and the city of David.

So when a hijab wearing Representative came to the U.S. House, one would expect that she would bring with her this belief system and give voice to those in this country that share her views– of which we are bringing more into our country every day.

The House Democrat’s Worst Kept Secret

March 7th, 2019 Viewed 51 times

The Democrats have a dilemma. If they move too fast towards impeachment– which many of their party ran on in 2018– then they look really bad to the Independents, whom everyone thinks you need to win. They look like they are rushing to judgement, with only a little over a year to go before Pres. Trump would face the electorate.

They know that the Republicans looked really bad for going after Pres. Bill Clinton when the majority of the populace really didn’t think his crimes were a big deal. So like those Republicans, whose base wanted Clinton removed, and the electorate disagreeing as to whether he should be, the Democrats are saying that they are “holding Trump accountable” and “following the evidence” whereas everyone knows they are building the case for impeachment.

We’re currently living in a country where there are two extremes that are under the impression that they are the true America, representing true American values and that the other side is anti-American or destroying America.

The Internet has opened up the door for a lot of communication and dialog that never happened before. The advent of social media has forever changed the human experience in ways that are both positive and negative, and this is a very dangerous thing.

Planned Parenthood debuted a new ad the other day, and I couldn’t believe it. First, take a watch and see what you think.

The Craziness That is Christmas

December 4th, 2018 Viewed 333 times

It’s that time of year again. Time for everyone to try to find something new to talk about because it’s all been said before.

Since most people understand not just the story of baby Jesus, but the idea of Santa Claus, etc. we get new takes on stories like the Grinch, news articles about substitute teachers telling their students that there is no Santa and articles about whether or not Jesus was born in a manger.

And though I haven’t seen many “War on Christmas” articles, we do have a lot of virtual ink spilled on First Lady Melania Trump’s red Christmas trees.

Vice President Has Picture Taken With Q Follower

So this is pretty wild. Vice President Mike Pence was meeting with some services members and a photo was taken of him with someone wearing a Q patch. And this put the MSM into a tizzy such that the photo was replaced by another one and the guy that was wearing it got demoted!

First, the photo:

Comey and Mueller: Tied to the Clinton Foundation

December 3rd, 2018 Viewed 320 times

Over the weekend, Andrew McCarthy posted an article entitled Robert Mueller’s Plan. In the article, McCarthy states that the way Muller is running this investigation is like a man who has to file a report, not someone that is bringing someone to trial. Therefore, Mueller can craft all the statements and doesn’t have to worry that all of his witnesses are liars. He just has to pull together a convincing story.

Here’s the part that I found interesting:

That brings us to the “where there’s smoke, there must be fire” talking-point Mueller fans have been trying out: If all these people are lying to cover something up, that something must involve some egregious criminality. That’s ridiculous. We know from our own daily lives that crimes account for only a very small percentage of the things people lie about. Indeed, throughout the 1990s, Democrats insisted that prosecutors should leave Bill Clinton alone because everybody lies about sex. People lie about things that they are embarrassed or ashamed about.

Politics is a seamy business. Pols want to think of themselves as public servants, but they spend lots of time with their hands out, either pleading for money or collecting information that might compromise an opponent. Successful politics requires horse-trading and compromise, so pols are forever explaining how they could actually be against something they voted for. A lot of this is embarrassing stuff. Consequently, when people in and around politics get caught practicing politics, they often lie about what they’ve done.

Politics is not a crime, of course. Consequently, if you criminalize politics — if you turn a prosecutor loose to investigate political campaign activities — you are apt to find unsavory conduct that is not criminal but that some people will lie about.

Andrew McCarthy, Mueller’s Trump Investigation Plan: Report Not a Criminal Case

You’ll want to read the whole thing, but this is the part that struck me– both because it’s true how bad politics and the name “politician” is and for the fact that what was done sounds bad, but is not illegal. Some things that are morally or ethically wrong are not illegal.
