Eating Their Own

I always knew the time would come when liberals would eat liberals. It was just as natural as the sun rising in the east. And the reason is simple. There are so many differing factions to the Democrats and the liberals out there that they are bound to run into each other on occasion. But this one may have taken the cake.

Now, they are upset at CNN!

Oh, it’s happened in the past. In fact, it happened on Joe Biden’s first day as president. Remember he decided his first act in the White House was to cancel the Keystone XL Pipeline project? Up to 11,000 people, all union members (read that as liberal…though the members usually aren’t) lost their jobs when Biden cancelled the project. But it happened again after CNN ran a town hall gathering with Donald Trump.

CNN had a town hall meeting with Donald Trump?

Yup. It was hosted by Kaitlan Collins, and had a bunch of Republicans and right-leaning independents in the audience. Trump was Trump, eschewing the fact that he had the 2020 election stolen from him. And he went on to say time and time again that Joe Biden isn’t fit to be the president in the first place.

And oh, did the libs every attack CNN for even considering to hold the town hall. Here’s the tweet from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: “CNN should be ashamed of themselves. They have lost total control of this ‘town hall’ to again be manipulated into platforming election disinformation, defenses of Jan 6th, and a public attack on a sexual abuse victim. The audience is cheering him on and laughing at the host.”

And it went on like that as the normally socialist network was lambasted by it’s audience. How dare they give a speck of time to a Republican, especially someone like Donald Trump?! They should be ashamed!!!

And that in a nutshell is the difference between the leftist socialist news channels, and what you see on the more conservative side, like Fox News, and Newsmax. At least Fox and to a lesser extent Newsmax are attempting to bring in the liberal view from time to time. Fox does a much better job of it, but they still manage to mostly either get rather moderate Democrats like Harold Ford Jr. or Geraldo Rivera to expound the liberal philosophy, or they end up with die-hard socialists that really make fools of themselves. Marie Harf, Leslie Marshall, and Jessica Tarlov come to mind of folks that fit into that vein.

You never really see a network like CNN or MSNBC catering to the other side. And when you do, it’s usually because they are bashing something a Republican somewhere has done. Here’s an example. James Comer, the Kentucky Republican Chairman of the House Oversight Committee held a press conference on Wednesday to show the world banking records his committee has uncovered regarding the Bidens. He outlined how there were fifteen different shell companies set up, mostly by Hunter Biden, and a few by Hunter’s buddies, that ended up funneling the money to nine different Bidens. You didn’t even hear word one of that on CNN or MSNBC. I don’t think any of the traditional networks broadcast that either. What they were busy talking about was the indictment of George Santos, the Republican Representative from New York that lied throughout his campaign. No mention of the Biden scandal, but they spent oodles of time covering this numbnutz.

And there in a nutshell is the difference between liberal and conservative. You can’t do anything right if you even mention the other side if you’re a liberal. And if you DON’T cover both sides as a conservative you’re hammered, not just by your own side, but by the left as well. And that’s how the left is able to sweep a lot of their more damning scandals under the rug. The question is, are they really going to be able to do it with Joe and Hunter Biden? And if that day comes, do you think places like CNN and MSNBC and the three broadcast networks will actually mention it? Back in the days of Watergate, all of the broadcast networks suspended their regular programming to cover the investigations on Capitol Hill about Richard Nixon. The phrase, “What did he know and when did he know it” became a part of our lexicon that is still used today. I doubt seriously you’ll see any of the broadcast networks cut into their soap operas and game shows to cover Joe Biden’s trial.

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

Proof Biden Lied? Or Hot Air?

House Oversight Chairman, James Comer (R-KY) lived up to his promise to “prove” that the Biden family is more of Biden Inc. He addressed the media yesterday and outlined what he says are bank records showing an incredible array of shell companies and bank transfers that ended up in the pocket of not only Hunter Biden and Joe Biden but seven other members of the Biden clan as well.

At least that’s the allegation.

The press conference by Comer suggested that they have the actual banking records that shows that millions of dollars from the Romanians, the Ukrainians, and the Chinese have made it’s way into Biden Inc. as a result of Joe Biden’s time in the White House through basically pay to play bribes. This was much like Hillary Clinton was accused of during her tenure at the State Department. There were a total of 15 companies that were formed by Hunter and his associates during the time Joe was VP, and that nine of the 15 were immediately shut down after the Obama’s left the White House.

Now, the question here is who do you want to believe. Alleging the wrong-doing is one thing. Getting Joe and Hunter and their attorneys to give you a viable explanation as to why it all happened is quite another. When asked about it yesterday, Joe Biden said that it was “false” and walked away. Of course he is going to say that. What else is a politician going to say these days? I’ve looked back at every single scandal I can find in Washington DC involving politicians, and when the initial story of the scandal broke, it was ALWAYS denied.

Let’s look at the initial White House response from Watergate. The morning after the “four Cubans” and James McCord were arrested at the Watergate complex for breaking in to Democrat National Committee Headquarters, press secretary, Ron Ziegler said that the president would have no comment on a “third-rate burglary attempt.” And we all know what happened after Woodward and Bernstein and the Washington Post began their investigation. What you may have forgotten was that the break-in occurred on June 17, 1972. Nixon resigned August 5, 1975, over three years later.

Knowing that, the mere fact that the whole Hunter Biden escapade has gone on for over five years in a highly partisan charged era isn’t surprising. No one back on June 18, 1972 felt that Richard Nixon was involved, nor going to resign. And don’t forget…1972 was a presidential election year, and Nixon won in a landslide, crushing George McGovern!

This whole thing with the Bidens needs to play out to be sure. Obviously there was something going on with the Chinese, and the Ukrainians, and the Romanians. Why else would millions of dollars be funneled into various Biden family member accounts? And James Comer and his committee have only been at this for five months! The FBI and the DOJ have been investigating Hunter Biden for five YEARS! And they may be close to filing some sort of charges.

I don’t think the charges that are going to be filed against Hunter are anywhere close to what Comer has uncovered yesterday. I’ve heard there were going to be a couple of misdemeanor charges, and a tax evasion charge. The one that is a sticking point is going to be the lying on the gun application. That’s a federal crime, and it’s a felony. That’s worth up to 12 months in prison and a $2,500 fine.

As Harold Ford Jr. always says, we need to let this play out. Democrats are rallying around the president and his son saying this is just politics. There’s no smoking gun, and nothing going on here. Of course, Republicans said the same thing about Adam Schiff and his lying on all of those allegations of “Russian collusion” with Donald Trump. It was all just an act and none of it were true. If that’s the same thing here, but on the other foot, it will hurt the credibility of the entire Republican party going forward.

But IF, just IF this is something, it IS indeed Pulitzer Prize material for the media outlet that decides to Woodward & Bernstein the whole thing and take it on. It IS one of the things that would make your career…not just in print, but in life. There is one thing I’ve learned about politics in DC from watching it from the sidelines for so long. With the exception of the Kennedy assassination, the truth always eventually comes out.

Will Hunter’s Problems Make A Difference?

Hunter Biden appears to be in a world of hurt. He’s got investigations that have been going on for five years or so. And he’s got to be an embarrassment to his family…he just has to regardless what they say in public. You know when it comes to private discussions in some Wilmington, Delaware basement, Hunter gets called out on the carpet for the stupid stuff he’s done. Then again, Joe’s probably put him up to a lot of it, right?

But the over-riding question is, will it make a difference in the 2024 campaign?

I know the feeling that most of the conservatives out there have. There are two sets of rules…one for us, and one for them. You can go back to Hillary Clinton and see that anything and everything she and Bill did was gone unpunished. OK, so they lost their law license. That was such a big deal? They weren’t making squat with it anyway. It was only after they left the White House, and Hillary and Bill came up with the “pay to play” scam when she was Secretary of State that they really started making the big bucks. But they never got charged with anything. Will Hunter? Some talking heads are saying they are close to reaching a deal of a few misdemeanors and maybe one felony for tax evasion. But will Hunter spend any time in a jumpsuit because of it? I doubt it.

And the bigger question is, will it make a difference with Joe Biden running for president in 2024? Again, I doubt it. If you were to go back in time to the early 1970’s, you’d find an entirely different attitude toward politicians that broke the law. Look at what Richard Nixon did. Do you honestly think that covering up a Watergate break-in was more serious than the stuff we’ve been looking at over the past decade? Politicians that pay for phony dossiers to be written claiming that their opponent was a Russian agent? That’s not serious? Nixon lost the presidency because he covered up Watergate. I don’t think it’s ever been proven that he actually planned it or even knew about it before it happened. He did indeed help to cover it up. So, all of the crap the Clinton’s did…all of the crap the Obama’s did…all of the crap that Biden is supposed to have done don’t rise to that standard? Really?

Our nation needs to figure out what we are going to do. If we are going to become a “Northern Ireland” of sorts where it doesn’t matter what the debate is about, either you’re with one side or the other, then we are doomed to fail as a nation. We have always been a nation of laws. And we have pretty much followed those laws. When someone gets out of line, we prosecute them and if they were found guilty, we send their sorry butts to jail.

So, if indeed Joe Biden is guilty of taking bribes, as has been alleged by whistleblowers, when he was Vice President, is he going to wear an orange jumpsuit? If you go back to Spiro Agnew, he resigned as Vice President when he was charged with one count of tax evasion, and was sentenced to…are you ready for this? $10,000 in fines, and had been placed on three years unsupervised probation. Is that what is going to happen to Joe Biden? Back then Agnew resigned his office BEFORE he was ever found guilty and then disbarred, with the judge calling him, “morally obtuse”. Will Biden receive the same name calling? I doubt it.

And will it make a difference in the outcome of our presidential election next year? Again, I doubt it. We are so divided as a country right now, that what Donald Trump said in the run up to the 2016 election is actually very close to being true. Remember when he said, “I could shoot somebody on 5th Avenue and not be charged!” I think he was probably right.

Can Jean-Pierre Discern The Truth From Fiction?

I don’t think so. Karine Jean-Pierre took over about a year ago from Jen Psaki as the White House press secretary when Psaki wanted to leave the White House, and take on a much more lucrative and less time consuming job at MSNBC. She ended up getting her own show after a couple of months. For Jean-Pierre, it’s been anything but a sweet ride.

And it continues to be a daily lie-infested diatribe from the White House podium.

In a recent stab at twisting history and the truth, Jean-Pierre made this comment: “You’ve seen illegal immigration come down 90%”. When she was questioned where she got that number, this was her response,  

“The Biden administration deals with the immigration system in a humane way, a way that actually deals with what we’re seeing at the border. And that’s why you’ve seen the parolee program be so successful. It has. It has. It has,” she said. “When it comes to illegal immigration, you’ve seen it come down by more than 90%. And that’s because of the actions that this president has taken. But we know that more action needs to be taken. Congress is responsible to take actions further than what President Biden has done thus far, but this issue is important to this president.”


The outright hypocrisy of that statement tells us one of two things. Either Jean-Pierre is a mega-habitual liar and can’t be trusted to say anything truthfully, or she is totally being left out of the loop at the White House and has to fend for herself against an ever increasing group of reporters who are just trying to get to the truth.

At first it was just Peter Doocy at Fox News that was asking the tough questions, with a lot of others tossing softballs at Jean-Pierre. But soon, because of the lies and the mis-statement of the facts, others have chimed in. Now even the vaunted New York Times, Washington Post, and other outlets have questioned her ability to tell the truth.

Let’s be clear. She did find a nugget of truth in the comment above. The illegal immigration that has fallen 90% actually has occurred. It’s come from the four countries that are now supposed to use this White House app in order to schedule an appointment to get their asylum hearings held. They have to do that before they attempt to cross into the country illegally. If they don’t, they are supposed to be deported and not be able to return. But she never made that distinction. It sounded like she was trying to sell the notion that illegal immigration at the southern border was down 90% because of Joe Biden. Actually, it’s increased to record high levels.

Now, I will say that she’s right on one account. It is indeed up to Congress to come up with a bill that fixes immigration, and would also punish those that enter the country illegally. If Congress were to pass a bi-partisan bill in that regard, and there is some movement toward that, then Biden would have to sign it. To not sign it would be a travesty and would prove that everything his administration hasn’t done to fix the border crisis has been done intentionally. That would not only spell the end of Joe Biden’s reign, but K-baby Harris, and Alejandro Mayorkas as well.

But the overriding problem is that Jean-Pierre is either an habitual liar or just plain stupid and doesn’t care what the facts are. Either way, this is what happens when you hire people based on race, gender, religion, or sexual orientation. You get people in roles that they are woefully not qualified for, and Jean-Pierre is just one example in this administration that that statement is true.

Hunter Has Screwed The Pooch

Hunter Biden cannot be a very smart man. Either that or the drugs he’s ingested over his lifetime have done a severe number on him. Case in point. He wanted to actually LOWER the amount of child support he pays to Lunden Roberts for his illegitimate daughter, Navy.

And it could be the thing that starts the dominoes to fall.

Hunter was paying Lunden some $20,000 a month to help raise Navy, a child that neither Hunter, nor his mom and dad (that would be Jill & Joe Biden) want anything to do with. They don’t even acknowledge her. They’ll take Hunter on trips to China, or the Caribbean, or Ireland, where he is seen climbing the steps of Air Force One, but they won’t even mention Navy. And this is a couple that professes to love children? At least Jill has said that. Joe just sniffs their hair for some weird fettish.

Let’s get into the weeds on this. The judge in the case, Holly Meyer, isn’t going to treat Hunter with kid gloves. This past week, both Hunter and Lunden appeared in an Arkansas courtroom run by Meyer. She basically told Hunter she wanted to see all of his income. She wanted to know the details of the information contained on that infamous laptop. And she wanted him to keep showing up in person in her courtroom throughout the trial. All because Hunter wanted to lower the amount he was paying. Yet he just sold a painting in New York for some $58,000 to some unknown buyer (we never learn the buyers’ names).

What is going to be the whole lynchpin here is Hunter’s inability to do the right thing. He had a torrid affair with his brother’s wife Hallie after Beau died, then five years ago, had a brief affair with Lunden that produced Navy, while she was a stripper. He’s 53 years old, she’s 32. Not saying age has anything to do with it, but it does. The guy just makes terrible decisions in life. And he always has. Even though Joe says he’s the smartest guy he ever knew. That’s not saying a lot for the people Joe knows!

So, what can possibly come of all of this? Well, first of all, it looks like Judge Meyer is at the very least going to get her hands on that laptop, or the information contained therein. Second, it looks like Hunter Biden’s income streams are going to become public record, because this trial is open to anyone that wants to sit in the courtroom and listen. And we’re going to learn just how much money Hunter has made from the Ukrainians and the Chinese and where that money went. He says he’s so broke he had to get rid of his Porsche. We’ll have to wait and see on that one.

It could just be the domino that starts the others falling, and will probably do so during primary season for Joe. Just when he wants to have a clean shot at reelection and at Donald Trump again, he could be forced to come clean on Biden Inc. It won’t be a pretty picture. If the rumors are true (and they ARE just rumors at this point), and Biden Inc. has made millions from foreign governments and have spread the money around to at least nine other Bidens, then this is going to be something that will make Watergate look like one of Joe Biden’s stories about how he graduated law school at the top of his class (he didn’t…he ended up near the bottom of the class).

But you want to know the interesting point in all of this? Take a look back at three presidential elections, 2016, 2020, and 2024. If Trump and Biden face off again, it will be the first time in the history of our country that in each of those three presidential elections, EACH of the two party’s candidates for president have been investigated for criminal activity. Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump in 2016. Donald Trump and Joe Biden the next two elections. Is this where our country is headed?

When are we as a country going to learn to stop nominating criminals and thieves for our nation’s top office? And when are we going to start punishing those that are guilty of the thievery and the crimes? Are we saying that it’s OK for Hillary Clinton to be involved in a pay-to-play scandal when she was Secretary of State? Is it OK for her to skate on having a private email server in her basement, but others that had non-secured email servers are going to have to atone for their actions? Is it OK for Donald Trump or Joe Biden to have affairs and still be president (it seems to me to be almost a requirement these days!) And is it OK for these candidates to take top secret documents with them when they leave office and store them, sometimes in an open box in a garage?

It’s time America stops playing politics and starts governing. Period.

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

Is This Biden’s Watergate?

There’s an old saying in Washington. It’s not the crime that gets you into trouble, it’s the coverup. That’s what did in Richard Nixon. Had he been forthcoming right from the start when it came to the Watergate break-in, he would have survived and Colson, Ehrlichman Dean, and Liddy would have been disgraced to a point they would today become forgotten men of history. But that’s not the way it worked. We had the 18 minutes of silence, we had all sorts of crooked dealings, and we had our first presidential resignation when it became evident that impeachment and conviction were definitely on the table.

So, is the current mess Joe Biden is going through HIS Watergate?

Remember, it’s not the crime, but the coverup. Biden allegedly took money, and millions of dollars from Ukraine and China and spread the wealth to his family. The fact that he said he didn’t meet with any of Hunter Biden’s business associates, nor discuss any of Hunter’s business dealings at any time…that is the coverup. And it looks like it is going to be proven. Now add to that a White House that says they aren’t getting involved in what the “independent” Department of Justice is doing with it’s investigation into not only Hunter, but Joe himself, and an IRS whistleblower that is hell-bent on proving to the world with what he calls is undeniable proof that high officials are playing political favorites in high profile cases (Hunter hasn’t been named because it’s an ongoing investigation and it would be a violation of federal law if he did so) have been slow-walking the investigation and playing politics with it.

And then you’ve got Biden ready to enter the fray tomorrow by doing a soft-announce through an internet video that he’s running for reelection in 2024. What makes this so interesting is, you could have the situation where by the time we get there, not one, but two presidential candidates, and both party’s nominees could be under indictment for breaking the law. Of course, Trump has three other investigations to go, and will probably be indicted on at least one of them. Biden could have three or more indictments coming his way as well. Certainly Hunter could.

I think it’s very interesting that all of this is coming out now. Michael Morrell, a former deputy CIA director has admitted that he was the one that got the 51 intelligence people to sign a letter saying that the whole Hunter Biden story was a Russian disinformation hoax. All of that was a lie, as we are learning now, even though Biden himself lied about it during a debate with Donald Trump. It just goes to prove that the truth always does come out. It’s not always at the most opportune time for either of the party’s involved, but it will come out eventually.

In this case, I think the fact that the whole Hunter Biden story is looking dirtier than what we originally were led to believe, and that Joe and Hunter have seemingly put together this scheme, while Joe was Vice President is incredibly illegal. It’s also interesting to learn now that back in the day when Biden was VP under Bobo Obama, the Obama administration knew what he was doing and even warned him not to go forward with the shakedowns, but Joe didn’t listen.

The end analysis is a long ways from being totally played out. It’s like the Watergate situation before all of the hearings started. But in the end, the truth will be known. And if the accusations that are being floated are true, it could very easily result in a very similar situation where Biden is either impeached and convicted (I’m not holding my breath in the current environment), or he is forced into resigning. The whole question is, does it come before the election in 2024, or like Watergate, does it wait until after the election. And does that mean K-baby Harris takes over if Biden were to beat the Republican nominee?

So many questions at this point, so few really true answers. We’ll have to wait and see. But record all of it. The grandkids will never believe it!

Top Secret?

There’s an old saying that three people can keep a secret…if two of them are dead. I think that’s part of the problem that we have with “top secret” stuff in our government. Well, it’s a small part of the problem. There is a myriad of other issues related to things being “secret”. But it makes you wonder, how does something that happened with Massachusetts Air National Guardsman, Jack Teixeira actually come to be? And before the leftists out there start in on me railing against Biden, it goes both ways. It’s a government problem not a political problem.

First off, we have to understand something.

When it comes to stuff being labeled “top secret”, we have to realize that most of it is garbage. You probably have very little interest in learning what the top secret stuff is all about. It’s only the headline-grabbing stuff that gets your attention, like blasting Ukraine and some of our other allies in that conflict. The reason that was “top secret” isn’t because it’s on a need -to-know basis. It’s because it’s embarrassing to the government if it got out that we were spying on our “friends” (like they spy on us).

But beyond that we have to realize that when you start talking about computerizing things and utilizing IT systems, you are more than likely going to employ people that are familiar with those types of systems. That only makes sense. And who are the people most likely to know the most about those systems? They are younger Millennials. They are the ones that grew up with computers. Oh, I was on the cutting edge. I’ve been computing since 1982. But that doesn’t make me an expert. I can’t code, and I can only do stuff like this. But compared to my friends out here in the desert, I’m the one they turn to when they need computer help. That’s probably because I’m the youngest one of our group.

So, when it comes to a 21 year old, named Jack Teixeira, who bragged about the stuff on the internet with a bunch of his teenage buddies and gamers, it stands to reason what happened. He wanted to impress people. I believe that he probably wasn’t out to sell these secrets to a foreign power, or to the highest bidder. He was trying to gain credibility in his group. Period. Still, that doesn’t make it any less of a crime.

Currently there are about 3 million people in this country that have “top secret” clearance. And if you’re going to tell me that all three million of them are squeaky clean when it comes to background checks, I’ve got a bridge in Lake Havasu City I want to sell you. Way too many people have access to way too much governmental information. Of course, a lot of the stuff could be declassified without any problem to begin with, but there still is a huge problem with all of the people that get the clearance in the first place.

Second, our government isn’t serious about protecting things that are “top secret”. Oh, Teixeira is going to spend the rest of his life behind bars, just wait. But if the same thing happens to say, Hunter Biden, or Joe Biden, or Mike Pence, or Donald Trump, and they’re caught with top secret material, they are not going to be prosecuted. It would look bad to do that to a former or sitting president or a member of their family. They will get a pass.

Yes, protecting secrets from foreign adversaries is important, no doubt. But what’s more important in my view is to make sure that a) the stuff we classify as “top secret” really is secret, and shouldn’t be shared outside a very small group of people; and b) the people that are given access to it are fully vetted, far beyond the methods we currently employ.

As far as the current leak is concerned, yes, I believe there was a lot of stuff in there that was damning to the government. Anytime you spy on friendly nations for any reason, you’re opening yourself up to some “aw gee” moments if you get found out. But the bigger problem is that this stuff was available on the internet (and still is if you know where to look), for over a month before the powers that be found out. Why? Because no one that is part of the power structure in Washington is that up on the internet. Just look at the stupid questions that Congress asks the tech industry when they are hauled in to testify over misinformation, or why they do what they do. Our government is stuck in the 1980’s not the 2020’s. So, they rely on kids that have the knowledge to run the data. And those kids aren’t ready for the clearances that they are given. It’s a conundrum that Washington needs to fix.

As for Teixeira, his life is basically over. Unless he jumps on the Snowden bandwagon and flees the country, he’s going to be wearing an orange jumpsuit for the rest of his days.

Liberal Media Crying Over Indictment

I wanted to wait and comment on this after a few days of the media getting to digest the fact that Alvin Bragg’s indictment of Donald Trump didn’t really have any special ticking time bomb. There wasn’t anything earth shattering about it. It was what everyone had been talking about for weeks…Donald Trump was being indicted for paying hush money to Stormy Daniels in an attempt to hide it from Milania, and not get it hushed up for the election.

And boy, was I surprised.

It didn’t matter who you watched, or where you turned. I might have been watching Newsmax as far as watching Jen “Circle Back” Psaki on MSNBC! There she was, decrying the fact that her liberal buddies need to make sure to let this thing play out, and not go crazy either way. No cheerleading over the indictments, and no crying in their beers. It was as though I was watching Harold Ford Jr. on The Five! And that was just the beginning.

CNN had the same thing. Jake Tapper, certainly not one to be in bed with Trump on anything, asked the former counsel to US Assistant Attorney General, Carrie Cordero what she thought of the indictments. She called the charges “a little underwhelming”. Joy Reid, Morning Joe, Poppy Harlow, John King, and Wolf Blitzer all had the basic same reaction… “Meh!”

Over at Fox News, they weren’t what I would call “gleeful”, but not even socialist, Juan Williams could mount much support for Alvin Bragg. In fact, overall, I really can’t tell you, other than the fact that the liberals are excited to see Trump have to go through the whole ordeal, they are really kind of taken back and ashamed that there is so little to this whole thing. And about the only thing they can fall back on is, “Well, it WAS the weakest of the four investigations going on.”

But what it’s going to do is going to be interesting, and a lot has to do with what New York Superior Court Judge, Juan Merchan, and how he wants to handle things. Trump has called him “a Trump hater”. There’s no doubt the guy is liberal as the day is long. But with the world watching, he appears to at the very least be giving an air of unbiased judicial temperament. But there will be several motions made by the defense team that will be interesting to see how he rules on. The first being to dismiss the trial outright for the fact that a) the statute of limitations has expired; b) the “felony” part of this was bogus to begin with; c) Bragg hasn’t pointed to any crime that has been committed; and d) Bragg has no jurisdiction to try anything to do with federal elections.

Beyond that, if Merchan rules against Trump’s team on those issues, he has to decide whether or not to move the trial. Trump’s folks want it moved to Staten Island, a much more conservative area of the city than Manhattan. And then there is the whole issue of what happens if the trial actually is allowed to proceed, which many talking head attorneys aren’t betting on. Most are saying this case will never get to trial.

So, that’s the spin from all of the liberal cable news outlets as well as Fox News and Newsmax. The question that is still out there is, what happens to all of this if the trial doesn’t go forward? One would have to believe that Trump would be crowing about this through election day 2024 proving just how corrupt the Deep State is, and how he needs to be reelected so he can continue to drain the swamp. Most Americans, some 70% believe that this whole sham was created just because of politics, not because of any wrong-doing. However some 60% think Trump did do something wrong. Of course, the numbers are very similar to Joe Biden’s and yes, even Hillary Clinton’s circumstances. So, it appears that if you’re going to be president, you have to have some sort of criminal activity going on in your past. And that my friends, is a very sad statement to make!

Alvin Bragg Slow On The Uptake

I don’t know what kind of person Manhattan District Attorney, Alvin Bragg is, but I can tell you what he isn’t. He isn’t very intelligent. I know that because of the stupidity he is displaying in deciding to indict Donald Trump on charges we just aren’t aware of yet (or at least at the time I’m writing this). Either that, or he believes the narrative that this indictment will help get Trump the nomination, and he’s like a lot of Democrats that feel if Trump goes up against Biden again, it will give the same results.

Alvin Bragg isn’t a very smart man.

First of all, let’s take a look at the indictment, or at the very least what we believe the indictment to be. If he’s trying to tie Trump to paying off porn star Stormy Daniels to keep her quiet as he ran for president back in 2016, he’s going to miss the boat. The statute of limitations on either a misdemeanor or a felony in the state of New York has run out. He can’t prosecute on those grounds. If, however, as I’ve heard, he wants to tie this to a federal charge, again, he’s out of luck because that needs to come from the feds. He has no standing in a New York court on a federal charge. That needs to go to federal courts. So, from the beginning, Alvin Bragg must have missed an awful lot of L-1 in Law School.

Secondly, let’s look at the situation that this indictment puts Trump in. Now, I can’t believe that Trump actually wants to go through with this, but let’s say he does. It will actually do what Trump has always loved, and that’s to stay in front of the camera, get all the newspaper coverage, or radio coverage or internet chatter that’s available. He’s a firm believer in the philosophy that “I don’t care what you say about me, spell my name right!”. Yes, that’s ego driven. But with Trump, it does make a difference.

Donald Trump has said over and over again, that he knew he’d be indicted, and he knew it would fail. So, he doesn’t really seem to care that it’s happening. But what he also knows that Bragg is obviously too stupid to understand is that it is going to help him get the GOP nomination in the long run. Republicans, Independents, and even moderate Democrats are going to see this as an overreach by an over-zealous George Soros backed prosecutor, who has this visceral hatred of the guy, and will do anything to bring him down, even if it’s politically motivated. I think Trump may be right on this one. This is Donald Trump’s strategy for winning the nomination and then he can use it to face Joe Biden in the general election. And don’t think for a minute that he won’t be tying Biden to Bragg in this.

Pundits have been saying for the past couple of weeks how this was the weakest of the four investigations going on regarding Donald Trump. The other three were the whole January 6th thing, the Georgia elections thing, and the Mar-A-Lago secret documents thing. Interestingly enough, Jonathon Turley, a well-thought of attorney in his own right, says that the Mar-A-Lago investigation should prove to be the most damning to Trump. Interestingly enough, it’s basically the same case that Joe Biden is going to be facing if they decide to indict Trump on that one! And now that precedent has been set to indict a former president, it’s a short hop to indict a sitting president.

Which leads me to my last point, and actually the strongest argument for leaving Trump alone during this whole investigation phase. Remember the “Harry Reid Rule”? That’s what Harry Reid did while Majority Leader in the Senate, to allow Bobo Obama’s federal judicial nominations to get passed with less than 60 votes. It bit him in the backside after he retired, when Mitch McConnell made the small leap to including Supreme Court Justices in the Reid Rule. And that allowed not one, not two, but three conservative Supreme Court Justices to be sworn in to the high court that wouldn’t have been had Reid kept his mouth shut. Bragg is facing the same situation. If you’re going to indict a former president for “crimes”, then it’s a short step to indict a sitting president for the same thing. The precedent has already been made. And Joe Biden needs to worry, especially if he’s successful with his reelection bid. Who’s to say, if Trump is taken down by this indictment, that a conservative DA somewhere in this great land of ours couldn’t do the same thing to Biden? He will have legal precedent on his side that Bragg just doesn’t have.

Alvin Bragg is not a smart man. It’s not a racist comment. It’s the truth. The truth sometimes hurts, and this is going to prove to be one of those times, mark my words!

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!


With apologies to Lynyrd Skynyrd!

If I leave here tomorrow, would you still remember me?
For I must be traveling on now
‘Cause there’s too many places I’ve got to see

But, if I stay here with you, girl
Things just couldn’t be the same
‘Cause, I’m as free as a bird now
And this bird you cannot change, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
And the bird you cannot change
And this bird you cannot change
Lord knows I can’t change

While that 1973 classic was written about a girl that the singer was leaving, a lot of it can be applied to Donald Trump these days. He had predicted that he would become the very first former president indicted for crimes and arrested. And he predicted that arrest would have happened yesterday. It still may happen today, but for the moment, as this is being written, he is indeed a free bird.

Manhattan District Attorney, Alvin Bragg, has a lot to explain one way or another on the whole Grand Jury thing with Trump. He’s been interviewing witnesses regarding Trump’s alleged payout to porn star, Stormy Daniels. If he goes through with the indictment and the arrest, Bragg, a Soros backed DA, will be under intense scrutiny personally and professionally. There are those in his own party that, even though they hate Donald Trump, don’t want to see him indicted. That’s for several reasons.

First of all, there are some very serious charges possibly pending up the road against Trump. There’s the whole January 6th thing that the special committee of the House put together and recommended to the Department of Justice that charges be filed against Donald Trump for enticing rioters to take over the Capitol Building. Then you’ve got the whole FBI Mar-A-Lago raid, though that is seeming less and less probable now that if you charge Trump, you’re going to have to charge Mike Pence (who supposedly didn’t even know he had the documents in the first place), and sitting President Joe Biden for the exact same crime of taking top secret documents.

Then let’s get into the whole statute of limitations things. The alleged payout to Daniels happened back in 2015 or 2016, when Trump was running for president the first time. New York’s Criminal Procedure Law says there is a two year statute of limitations on misdemeanors, and a five year statute of limitations on most felonies except for rape or murder. So, Bragg’s charges and this whole charade may be thrown out of court on day one if Trump is indeed indicted.

Next, you have the charge itself. It’s not illegal, even in New York, to pay hush money to someone. So, even if Trump did it, Bragg is going to have to prove that it’s against the law. He plans to say the money was paid out of campaign donations, not Trump’s personal account. That would also be an easy thing to prove. And apparently, Trump then-attorney, Michael Cohen was the one that paid Daniels, not Trump. Yes, Trump is said to have reimbursed Cohen for the payment, but does that mean he paid him out of campaign funds, or out of his own personal funds. It will make a difference.

Then there is the public’s reaction. Trump is betting on the fact that if he is charged, he can play the victim, and that will spark protests and increase his chances of getting the GOP nod for the presidency. Most pundits feel that he would be in a better position if he were indicted. It would bring out the voters that felt that he got railroaded and we need to do something to curtail the left’s multiple over-reaches since Biden took over as president.

Finally, and I think this is exactly why the Democrats that are not in favor of this one going forward, is it would be yet another chapter in what I refer to as the “Harry Reid Rule”. While Reid was Majority Leader in the Senate, he pulled a lot of strings to allow Bobo Obama’s nominations for federal judges to go through. He got it passed that it only took 51 votes to pass, not the normal 60. That came back to bite Democrats in the backside when Donald Trump nominated Neil Gorsuch for the Supreme Court, and Mitch McConnell, then Majority Leader got the Reid Rule extended to Supreme Court Justices. It’s also what allowed Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett to get to the high court.

And that is exactly what could happen again. If Bragg goes through with this, what would stop someone else somewhere else from doing the same thing to say, Joe Biden when he leaves office? Or maybe Hillary Clinton? Or Bobo Obama? There is always a quid pro quo possibility in these things.

I think Trump is hopeful that he DOES get indicted and charged. He WANTS to go and have the perp walk, and have his mug shot taken and get finger printed. Nothing would make him happier. It would cause Republicans to rally around him, even as they have started to splinter their support of him. And it would strike fear in the hearts of Democrats who, let’s face it, would rather run against God Himself, then to go up against an angry and vengeful Donald Trump. Oops. Gotta go. My popcorn is done!
