Biden’s Infrastructure Boondoggle

Joe Biden has made no bones about his desire to fundamentally improve the infrastructure in this country. And I think that if you asked most people in Congress, they’d probably agree that the infrastructure in the country needs to be severely upgraded. That’s not the bone of contention. There is one however.

It’s in the definition of “Infrastructure”.

If you were to look in the dictionary for a definition, this is what you’d find: 1 : the system of public works of a country, state, or region also : the resources (such as personnel, buildings, or equipment) required for an activity. 2 : the underlying foundation or basic framework (as of a system or organization).

If you were to ask Republicans what “Infrastructure” was, they’d probably say something closer to the first example. Democrats would expand that greatly.

In fact, Democrats would probably say that infrastructure includes anything in cities and states. It’s not only roads, and bridges, airports and train tracks…what most people would certainly consider infrastructure. It’s also things like internet access, study climate change, expand homebased care for the elderly, get ready for the “next” pandemic, and to expand “housing stock”. Of course in that is a lot of stuff from the Green New Deal.

There are basically two problems with this. The first is 90% of economists out there are cringing at the Democrats’ definition. They say it “does a bit of violence to the English language.” So, basically anything on the Democrats’ wish list is fair game to be called “infrastructure”. The second problem with this are the endless parade of lies that are being told about it.

You have to realize that most states Departments of Transportation fix the roads in their states. They maintain the bridges, and the airports. All of the “traditional” stuff that you could consider infrastructure. When you get right down to it, about 5% of this infrastructure bill actually goes to fix roads and bridges, airports, bus terminals, train depots and tracks, and on and on. That’s because the federal government doesn’t traditionally dabble in this. In fact, the last time the feds decided to do something like this involving infrastructure, it was back in 1956 when Dwight D. Eisenhower signed into law the bill that gave us the Interstate Highway system we currently use. Most of the time, the feds kick in about $100 billion a year toward infrastructure. States will pay about four times that much overall.

So, it’s basically a states issue, not a federal government issue. Second, and equally important is the lie that Pete Buttigieg, the current Transportation Secretary, told when he went on the various Sunday talking head shows and said that National Economic Council Director, Brian Deese had come out with the number of 19 million new jobs created over the next ten years. And Buttigieg dutifully reported that number. The problem was, that number is a lie. There are going to be 16 million new jobs created over the next ten years regardless if the infrastructure bill gets passed or not. The bill only adds about 2.7 million new jobs over ten years. That’s less jobs per year than Walmart added to their stores in 2020! And the cost per job created? About $830,000. I doubt any of those jobs will pay that.

Democrats need to stop lying about things like this. They need to realize that the truth always comes out, and when the American people (who are not as smart as you and I) realize that they’ve been lied to, there is going to be a massive revolt against them. But then again, you can’t fix stupid!

Biden Wants To Pack The Court. Court Doesn’t Agree

Joe Biden this past week signed yet another Executive Order that establishes a commission to look into whether or not the Congress should put together approval to add justices to the United States Supreme Court. The commission has to study the issue and report back to Biden in 180 days (6 months). Known as “court packing”, it hasn’t been attempted for the last 84 years. The last time it was attempted was also when a Democrat was in charge, FDR, and did so for pretty much the same reason. Back then, FDR was moving the country far to the left with socialist ideas and programs and the high court was knocking down a lot of what he wanted to do as unconstitutional. So, he tried to pack the court by adding liberal justices, thereby assuring that his ideas would get through.

It hasn’t been attempted since 1937.

Why is it being done today? Simple. Democrats are in this hail Mary, squash the right mentality. They know that they own the Congress, and the White House, and if they change enough laws, and get the Supreme Court up to say, 15 jurists, they’ll have a majority in all three branches of government. Then they can do away with the filibuster, make Washington DC, and Puerto Rico a state to get more liberal Senators (they already have a vote scheduled for this coming week on DC statehood), and pass HR-1 which would basically give them free reign to own the voting system in every state by nationalizing the voting laws, and making mail-in ballots at least easy, if not mandatory. It would make their attempts to defraud elections so much easier.

Well, what does the Supreme Court thing about all of this?

I’m not sure what most of the nine jurists on the high court think. I can tell you what one thinks. He thinks it stinks. And he’s not some super-conservative Brett Kavanaugh type of justice either. It’s liberal Stephen Breyer!

Breyer was giving a speech at Harvard Law this past week and said that he felt packing the court would do irreparable harm to the government. He stated that the court’s authority depends on  “a trust that the court is guided by legal principle, not politics. Structural alteration motivated by the perception of political influence can only feed that latter perception, further eroding that trust.”

But wait…there’s more.

The late (some say great), Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who was about as socialist and liberal as one could get didn’t like the idea either. She said it “would make the court appear partisan” and destroy the public’s confidence in the court’s credibility, and therefore the court itself. It would be one side saying, ‘When we’re in power, we’re going to enlarge the number of judges so we’ll have more people who will vote the way we want them to.'” Interesting that two of the most liberal justices in the history of the Supreme Court agree that what Biden is doing is out of bounds and bad for America!

Now, if Clarence Thomas, or Neal Gorsuch, or Kavanaugh had said that, I’d probably say it was a difference in political ideas. But Breyer is a liberal through and through. He’s probably next to Elena Kagan, the most liberal justice on the high court. And he’s totally against expanding the court just to get a political advantage.

So it becomes clear what the Dems are doing. Take over all three branches of government in a bloodless-coup and rule forever to make America a socialist dynasty. There is one problem with that. America does not want to become a socialist country. Most Americans (73%) say they don’t want to be socialist. And of the 27% that are either undecided or in favor of it, if they actually lived under such a regime, I doubt they’d be a fan of it for long.

Socialism doesn’t work. Democrats aren’t that smart to understand that. It has never been successful at improving the lives of people anywhere in the world it’s ever been tried. Oh, some countries may have socialized programs here or there, but that’s a far cry from pure socialism. It doesn’t work, and it’s the one thing that is going to lead to the United States being sent down the tubes as a country.

Remember how great and powerful countries like Spain, England, Portugal, France, and Germany were? Remember how at times they ruled many different countries all over the world? What do they have today? They are feckless and weak. They have to come together as the European Union just to get recognized. Because individually, they don’t amount to squat, and that’s exactly what’s going to happen to the United States of America if Democrats succeed. They will be the cause of the downfall of our nation. And we have to stop it. The sooner, the better. It begins by taking away their power in Congress in 2022, and the White House in 2024. I’m sure they’ll get both back at some point in the future, but we can’t allow them to ever do what they are talking about doing now.

And Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, and Joe Biden/Kamala Harris are nothing more than enemies of the people.

Crime Continues To Rise Under Biden

Wait a minute. Wait just a cotton-pickin’, doggone, New York minute! We were told that if we elected Joe Biden over Donald Trump back in November last year that the seas would fall, climate change would vanish overnight, COVID-19 would become a thing of the past, dogs would sleep with cats, and there would finally be peace on earth and goodwill toward men. It’s like the Second Coming, right?

None of that has happened.

In fact, while crime increased 33% in 2020, it continued to increase at that rate in 2021 throughout the first three months of the year, leading me to wonder if we were all fed some line. I’m beginning to wonder if electing Joe Biden was just a way for Democrats to get rid of Donald Trump because they didn’t like the fact a neophyte politician came in with zero experience, and beat 17 people in his own party, and then someone that wanted to be anointed “Queen” of the world.

I have to tell you, I’m friggin’ amazed that it hasn’t happened as they said it would. Here we are, a full three months and a few days into 2021, and Joe Biden has done, what? Send us $1,400 of the $2,000 he promised us? He’s created a crisis on the southern border where now three and five year olds are dropped over a 15 foot fence into this country by their parents, or the mules their parents hired to bring them here…left to fend for themselves? We’ve seen his son now admit that he “doesn’t know if that was his laptop or not” that had all of that damning information on it. It may have been the Russians. Are you telling me you couldn’t identify your own computer? I doubt many people would fall for that one!

This year has been characterized as one of lies, half-truths, mis-steps, bogus comments, walkbacks, and more lies. Democrats are fumbling around trying to figure out how to change the rules that have been in place since ancient Roman times. I’m of course, talking about the filibuster. Democrats realize that they can’t muster 60 votes to pass anything in Congress when they have a 50/50 tie, so they do what they do best. If you can’t win honestly and legally, cheat or change the rules to your advantage. That means that all the bluster that we hear coming out of the mouths of that 80-something Nancy Pelosi and that 70-something Chuck Schumer is nothing more than blather and lies. They can’t make Puerto Rico a state. They can’t pack the Supreme Court. They can’t open the borders and pass Biden’s lame attempt at immigration reform.

And what galls me beyond belief is that We The People fell for the ruse. I know there have been minority groups that have fallen for it for the last 70 or 80 years, where they are touted as “important planks in the party” when elections roll around, and then forgotten after that. I know that they tell us they are for “the working people in this country” before the elections, and then afterwards, cut out 11,000 union jobs sending people to the unemployment lines. I know they tell us they are all about helping people that help them get elected prior to the election, before they decide they are going to take the coal miners in our country and put them out of work, telling them they should “learn to code computer programs”.

So, what are We The People going to do about it? Democrats even at the state level have some rather serious issues facing them. In Georgia, they’re all upset at the new voting laws that actually expanded voting, yet very upset at Major League Baseball for yanking the All Star Game from Atlanta because of it. In California, where the largest contingent of Democrats in the country resides, they’ve reached recall proportions against their Democrat sitting Governor. And in New York….yeah, you know as well as I what’s happening in the Empire State. Not much empire there anymore.

If you look at the cities in this country with the highest crime rates (I’m looking at YOU, Chicago, New York, Baltimore, Washington DC, and Seattle) they are run by Democrats. And to have a 33% rise in crime, regardless which party is in charge is ridiculous. But we were promised that all would be right with Joe Biden. He’d work across the aisle because he’s done that for 47 years. Yet when he gets into power, what’s the first thing he does? He ignores the Republicans and shoves his own stimulus bill through with absolutely 0 Republican votes. That’s not what I remember bi-partisanship is. Maybe I fell asleep in Civics Class.

Where The #MeToo Movement Is Wrong

OK, I understand that headline is going to strike people wrong. I get it that it may look like I’m actually FOR sexual misconduct, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. I’m speaking strictly about New York Governor, Andrew Cuomo’s predicament. Now some magazine has come out and said that it’s not six or even seven women that have been abused in some way by the Governor…it’s 30!

And I’m here to contend, that these allegations, while important are the least of Cuomo’s problems.

I think a much more damning issue with Cuomo is his total disregard for elderly life with his decision to mandate that nursing homes accept COVID patients, right in the midst of the most vulnerable people in our society. And while the sexual misconduct charges are garnering all of the headlines, I have to say that I find it rather disgusting that sexual abuse is viewed in our society, apparently more serious of an issue than the killing off of the elderly.

Let’s get it straight. Andrew Cuomo’s life as a politician is over. I saw a poll recently that said most people feel he won’t resign, but will fight it right up to the point that he realizes there are votes there to impeach him. I’m not sure if New York has the same punishment that we went through with Donald Trump, whereby not only are you removed from office, but you may not be able to run for elective office (at least local or state office) again. If that’s the case, I would see him bailing before he’s actually impeached, tried, and convicted. It’s the Nixon gambit.

But what worries me more than anything to do with Andrew Cuomo, because I really don’t care about him, is that we seem to be paying attention to the wrong things in our society these days. We spend much more time worrying about how many women a politician groped than we do about how many people the same politician killed with his policies and decisions.

As we look around the country, I find it very sad that the left views what happened at the US Capitol on January 6th to be an incredibly heinous display by what appears to be Trump supporters (though there have been at least one or two ANTIFA members videotaped inside the Capitol during that incursion), and yet they have nothing to say about the riots in Portland, Seattle, Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, and Minneapolis. They cry that five people died in the Capitol takeover attempt, yet have are silent about the 25 people that were killed in the riots.

We tragically mourn the death of someone like George Floyd, and we all do, but have no problem turning a blind eye to the number of murders that happen every weekend on the streets of Chicago, Baltimore, Washington, DC, or New York City. We continuously hear complaints about how treasonous Donald Trump’s acts were as president…that he was “illegitimate”, yet we hear nothing about Hunter Biden’s foibles, or if, and how deep the current President of the United States has been involved in it, and whether he profited by millions of dollars in the shady dealings.

This country is at a crossroads. We either are going to allow the leftist snowflake socialists to continue with their notion of being “woke” and using cancel culture to sweep American history under the rug, or we are going to return to what made America great. It isn’t about this complaining about meaningless stuff like not publishing books by Dr. Seuss. That sounds more like Nazi Germany than it does the United States. And they want to tell me that Donald Trump was the Nazi? Somehow I think they were skipping school during that part of history class!

The “COVID Conspiracy Theory”?

Reading the day’s headlines this morning it hit me. First of all, I’m NOT a conspiracy theorist. I don’t think there is a secret cabal somewhere that runs the world. I think we actually landed on the moon several times. I believe Oswald killed Kennedy. And it goes on and on. BUT…

If I WERE a conspiracy theorist, the last year would start me wondering all over again. And I’m talking about how COVID has changed our lives. When you think about it, and think about what we as a nation have had to do over the past 12 months, it makes you wonder. Let me ask you this: What plan that was widely viewed as “outrageous” would make you curtail your travel on planes, cancel the cruise industry altogether, limit your travel to other parts of the country; get you to work from home so we don’t need skyscraper buildings in the bigger cities and useless commute times; take away most if not all of our entertainment venues to keep us in line; keep our kids out of school so at the very least they would receive a less than adequate education (dumbing down the masses); introduce and promote a “woke” society, and a “cancel culture”?

Sounds like the Green New Deal to me.

You know we all poo-pooed the Green New Deal when AOC came out with it. And at the time, only the most radical socialists in the country were embracing it. But when you think of all that’s happened with COVID and how it’s changed everything we do to pretty much mash up with what it is the uber-leftist snowflake liberals wanted, it’s almost scary, isn’t it? If you look at what you’ve had to give up over the past year, and let’s face it, wearing some stupid mask in public is only a very small part of it, isn’t this a huge coincidence? Or is it something like a test, to see how far Americans (and the world) would go if ordered to do so?

I really do wonder on this one. Because of the blog I did a few months back with Genevieve Briand from Johns Hopkins, who said that the number of deaths in this country was pretty stable. In 2019 there were about the same number of deaths as in 2020, but she said that the causes of the deaths went from cancer, and heart attacks and strokes and the like to COVID, while the other causes of deaths seemed to pretty much disappear. So, is it a conspiracy theory to make people believe that everyone that is dying is dying because of COVID, and not the other stuff?

Let’s face it. I can certainly see how the left could come up with something like this just to see if some Green New Deal could work, and for how long before the riots started (not long, as we’ve seen). And when you look and see that the left never once thought that the riots and mass protests over George Floyd’s death violated social distancing rules, or mask rules, but political rallies, and church services did, the inconsistencies were certainly there. Why not ban everything?

The really troubling thing is, if this actually WAS some world-wide test to see how much control could be inflicted over the planet, that would have to change my way of thinking on a lot of things. Now, if there actually is some secret cabal running the world someplace, you’d have to think that eventually it would come out. Somebody somewhere would have to say that they were once in the cabal, and now they are not and they spill the beans on it. I mean, that happens in every other walk of life. The truth does always eventually come out, right? Geesh…it’s like learning that your parents actually had sex!

Well, today, I’m just wondering. It hit me reading news story after news story. It would explain a lot, that’s for sure, but I’m not so sure I’m ready to drink that flavor of Kool-Aid just yet!

Time For Cuomo To Go

To think it was less than a year ago, New York Governor, Andrew Cuomo was sitting on top of the world. He was praised by both sides of the aisle for his daily briefings on Coronavirus, while Donald Trump was being roundly mocked by media and pundits alike for his rambling diatribes that sometimes would go two hours. Cuomo was hailed as a leading expert on how to deal with COVID, and was even given an Emmy award for his daily broadcasts. Cable news channels couldn’t get enough of him, and he was on the air more than probably any other politician save Donald Trump.

Oh, how the times have changed.

When it came out earlier this year that Cuomo had withheld the true numbers of nursing homes deaths caused by his requiring New York nursing homes to admit COVID patients, and that the true number of deaths could have been thousands more than he originally had released, the tarnish started to show. When the FBI and the Department of Justice started investigating him for the falsehoods, it started getting ugly.

Cuomo is not going to leave the Governor’s mansion in Albany without a fight, that’s for sure. He’s called his detractors, which now include a growing number of Democrats, both in Albany, and in Washington, all sorts of names, and has threatened “to ruin” those in Albany that want him investigated. He has refused to apologize for the call to send COVID patients into nursing homes, where previously healthy residents caught the virus, were taken to hospitals and died by the thousands (some say upwards of 15,000). It’s now estimated that over 1,500 deaths could have been avoided had Cuomo not issued that order.

Even socialist-minded CNN has decided to get into the fray and cover Cuomo more and more as the volume of anger among Americans everywhere reaches a crescendo. The news network has told it’s talk show host, Chris Cuomo that he is not allowed to cover the story, nor to interview his brother in the mess. Oh, they are still very partisan, as is ABC, who spent four minutes covering Ted Cruz’ ill-fated decision to fly his daughters and their friends out of Texas for sun and fun, while spending all of 55 seconds on Cuomo.

Let’s make no bones here. Andrew Cuomo made a critical, career ending mistake. He needs to resign before he’s impeached. There’ll be no run for the White House in 2024 or 2028. There’ll be no landing the Attorney General’s job if Merrick Garland decides to step down. There’ll be no more elections for this guy. He’s had his day in the sun, but his bullying tactics, his outrageous defense of his actions, and his inability to step up to the plate when he obviously made a decision that killed thousands, and take responsibility for it are too much to allow him to continue on in his current profession. Andrew Cuomo should be tried and if found guilty, sent to prison for this deed. It isn’t a mistake. Two plus two equals five is a mistake. This was criminal. And he needs to be held accountable.

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

It Was OK Back Then…But Now?

The White House has come out and is telling Meena Harris to cool it. And that has Republicans in a snit fit. Who is Meena Harris, and why does it matter? Harris is the niece of Vice President, Kamala Harris. And she apparently has been using her aunt’s fame to promote her brand on the internet.

See, Meena is a social influencer. That means she does kind of what I do, except for money. And to be totally transparent, I don’t get paid a nickel (nor do I want to) for writing these blogs. But Meena wants the money. She’s got over 800,000 followers. And she isn’t shy about telling them who her aunt is. And she’s not shy about using that to promote her website, her vlongs, and blogs, even a clothing line.

But oops. The White House doesn’t want any of that. Which is kind of interesting. An anonymous White House source has said, “Some things can’t be undone. But that being said, behavior needs to change.” And it’s not like Meena hasn’t been told. White House lawyers told her after the election that she had to cease and desist using Kamala’s name and likeness in promoting her stuff.

Now, the question I have is, does this have a familiar ring to it? Does it sound like another Vice President you know, who’s kid got a well paying job, and maybe millions of dollars from foreign governments because daddy was VP? It didn’t seem to be such a big problem back then when it happened…or when that daddy was running for president recently, and was asked about his son’s business dealings. But now, all of a sudden, when it happens to HIS Vice President, it’s time to hit the brakes!

OK, all things being equal and fair, the question I have is, “What has changed?” Why is Kamala Harris’ family member being treated any differently today under a Joe Biden administration, than Joe Biden’s family member was treated back under a Bobo Obama administration? It’s still a smelly kettle of fish. It was then, and it is now. And while, yes, I would say that it’s right to tell Meena Harris to stop using the VP as a marketing tool, why wasn’t that said to Joe Biden’s son, Hunter back when he got his job with Barisma, or when Joe threatened to withhold money to Ukraine if they didn’t fire the prosecutor that was looking into that company? Or when Hunter made millions after flying to Beijing with daddy to meet with the Chinese? If it’s good for the gander, why isn’t it good for the goose?

And actually, it wasn’t good for the gander. He just happened to get away with it. And he doesn’t want a situation so close to what he did, and got called out on it, happening to her. Because he knows, that in just three short years, she’s going to be running for his seat. And it’ll look really bad if the last two Democrats to hold that post were selling influence to benefit their family members.

Oh. One more thing. By doing this now, Joe gets to say he’s above board on this type of nonsense. He’s hoping you don’t have a member that goes back to when he was Vice President!

Please Come Back!

Yeah, that’s the refrain coming from the Minneapolis City Council these days. Back after George Floyd died, and the city was rioting, the Minneapolis City Council rushed to join Antifa and Black Lives Matter in trying to “defund the police”. Well, they succeeded.

Now their tune has changed.

Apparently, some nine months of having fewer and fewer cops on the streets hasn’t led to good things in the Twin Cities. They’ve been losing police officers left and right and currently the city has about 640 cops, some 200 below where they should be. So, what did City Council do? Of course! They threw money at the police, upping the same budget they gutted some eight months ago, by $6.4 million! They’re hoping to have some 700 officers on the streets in time for the one year anniversary of Floyd’s death.

And what do we learn from this?

We learn that first and foremost, when you rush in and make decisions using your heart and not your head, you are going to regret it. Of course, it was the popular decision back then. Of course, it was “right” to be on the side of blacks in the city who felt this was just another example of police bias and racial hatred toward them. Of course, the City Council felt they would “defund the police” as a way to punish them for their incredibly heinous and inhumane action. And of course, knowing that liberals never know when to hit the brakes, some members of the City Council are looking at still getting rid of the police and replacing them with a Public Service Department, which would include cops, as well as psychologists, and sociologists, and whatever other profession they feel is necessary to bring about a “fair and just” society to all. They’re getting signatures as you read this, and hope to get it on this fall’s ballot.

Of course, throwing money at at problem is usually not a good idea when it comes to politics. It’s what got the federal government in trouble. They decide they want to undertake a “worthy program” that some liberal just can’t live without, and realize soon after it passes that its’ costs far outweigh the benefits. But liberals never met a social program they didn’t like, so they fight like hell to keep it, even though the ballooning costs keep it resembling a white elephant more than a solution to a problem.

And that’s what has to stop.

Look, I feel terrible that any person, black, white, brown, red, green, or purple has to die at the hands of anyone. That’s not right, whether it’s a cop, or a drive-by shooting. And yes, guilty parties need to be held accountable. But I also am a realist. You cannot expect people to act perfectly in every situation because…well…we’re people. We’re human. We’re going to make mistakes, and since government is run by people, it’s a part of what we should expect.

Unfortunately, I don’t believe Minneapolis’ Mayor, or police chief, or City Council understands that. I think they’re bulling ahead blindly hoping that if they throw more money at the situation, it will correct itself. Except that has never worked. And it never will. And the only people that will end up paying are the taxpayers…if there are going to be any of them left in Minneapolis after all of this shakes out.

Clinton’s Hit With Tax Evasion Charges

In a move that I can only call stunning, Bill and Hillary Clinton’s “Clinton Foundation” has been hit with tax evasion charges. But wait, as Ron Popeil would say…there’s more!

According to “Just The News”, federal tax court judge, David Gustafson actually denied a request from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to DISMISS charges against the Clinton’s for tax evasion. Yeah, your eyes aren’t deceiving you. The organization famous for going after you and pulling your teeth out of your head if you don’t pay every penny owed, actually went to this tax judge and said they wanted to dismiss the charge of tax evasion. Thank God the judge had the sense to say NO!

So why in the world would the IRS want to dismiss charges that could give them some $2.5 BILLION in additional taxes? Well, according to the dismissal notice, the IRS said that two whistleblowers had filed a complaint with their “complaint bureau”. It was sent to the “criminal investigation” office, who replied that the complaint was null and void because the case had been closed. Obviously, the judge decided to reopen it!

The two whistleblowers, John Moynihan and Larry Doyle have experience in both government and accounting. They went through Clinton Foundation tax records, and interviewed former employees of the Foundation. What they found was that about 60% of the Clinton Foundation’s donations went to such things as paying for travel and salaries. Normally with foundations of this sort, that number is about 15%. So, as a matter of judicial record, this court case will, indeed, proceed.

OK. So there are the facts, and you can read the article yourself at:

https://thebl.com/us-news/clinton-foundation-charged-with-evading-up-to-2-5-billion-in-taxes.html

Now, you’re probably asking yourself the same question that I’m asking. Why? Why would the IRS decide to try and dismiss a case that could reap $2.5 billion for the federal government in unpaid taxes? Why wouldn’t they want to go after a Foundation that apparently has been so egregious in it’s spending as to line the pockets of those in charge, and pay for their travel around the world? Is there anyone else out there that is getting the aroma of rotting fish in this one?

I’ve always said, and mentioned it several times in the blog that the wheels of justice grind slowly, but very fine. And it appears that whomever has been behind the rise of Bill and Hillary Clinton since they graduated college has tried once again to pull a fast one here and save them one more time. Personally, I hope they get what’s coming to them, but if I were Judge Gustafson, I’d have someone else start my car for a good long while!

Big thanks to “T” for sending this one along!!!

EXTRA! TRUMP FOUND NOT GUILTY IN 2ND IMPEACHMENT TRIAL

The vote wasn’t close. it was 57 to convict, 43 to not convict. And once again the Democrats have failed to do anything but waste time and money at the taxpayers’ expense. Susan Collins of Maine, Richard Burr of North Carolina, Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Mitt Romney of Utah, Ben Sasse of Nebraska, and Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania crossed over to vote with the Democrats.

This brings to a close what everyone in the country already knew was going to happen…a second exoneration of Donald Trump, this time on “inciting an insurrection”. Even with the 57 votes to convict, Democrats are still going to be short should they try to use the 14th Amendment which allows Congress to bar anyone involved in an insurrection to hold elective office. Should they try that maneuver, they will still need three more Republicans to cross over and that’s very unlikely to happen.

So, once again, Democrats have come up empty in their visceral hatred of Donald Trump. Not that it really will make any difference in the long run. I’d bet the farm that Trump won’t seek the presidency ever again anyway. And once again, the Democrats will get the blame for wasting valuable time in an impeachment that meant nothing instead of passing COVID relief, immigration reform, and ways to boost the economy (which will right itself anyway).

I’m sure that happy this charade is over is not only Donald Trump, but also Joe Biden, who can now get down to business.
