The Supreme Court…1 Year Later

It’s hard to imagine that just one year ago, amid lies of sexual abuse, and threats of immediate impeachment if Democrats won the House of Representatives, liberal snowflakes had to realize that the Supreme Court of the United States of America was about to take a turn to the far right with the confirmation and seating of the newest Justice, Brett Kavanaugh.

It was one year ago yesterday that Kavanaugh was sworn in as the High Court’s newest Justice. And even though that in that year, the uber-socialist left has targeted him for no reason at all, trying to impeach him over yet another made up story that not even the supposed victim remembered, the Supreme Court lives on. In fact, the Supreme Court is the most trusted branch of our federal government!

In a recent poll, more than half of the American’s asked said that they supported the Supreme Court. They were found to be the most trustworthy of the three branches. Certainly they are the most apolitical. And even with the majority of seats taken up by conservatives, interesting things have happened.

Abortion remains legal in this country; the rights of gays and lesbians are unabated; women are treated equally; all of the things that the socialist snowflakes out there fight for day after day (except maybe the impeachment of Donald Trump) haven’t been disturbed. And something surprising has happened. The man the left wanted to impeach, the man they wanted to deny a seat over a made up sexual allegation, is actually taking the liberal side on some issues. Yes, Brett Kavanaugh has been voting on some cases with the likes of Ruth Bader Ginsburg! And gasp…so has John Roberts.

I think what that means to say is that once you get seated on the highest court in the land, you look at the law, how the Constitution is interpreted, and you use those elements to decide fairly how in the world we live. And, America approves.

Compare that with a president who has a 47% approval rating. Compare that to Congress who has an 8% approval rating. And why are their ratings below the magical 50% mark?

President Trump is seen as a businessman who knows how to turn the economy around, and how to get people jobs. After the abortion known as the Obama presidency, that’s a plus. However, he likes to shoot his mouth off in very un-presidential ways. That has a tendency to piss people off. Congress, has been swept up in the whole issue of whether or not Trump ever should have been elected…at least the House side, in the past year. And that has ground to a halt the really important work they needed to do. Things like getting rid of Obamacare and letting the free market once again take over healthcare insurance. Things like fixing the immigration policy of this country that has been broken for decades. Things like how to deal with the millions of illegal aliens that pour across a porous border to our south without regard to our laws.

And yet, the Democrats in Congress are so upset, so ingrained that they must over-turn a duly-elected President of the United States, they can’t see past the nose on their face. It is the country that suffers.

So, happy anniversary to Brett Kavanaugh. He and Neil Gorsuch, President Trumps’ two picks to the high court have been a breath of fresh air. And here’s hoping we can replace two more liberal snowflakes on that high court with two more very sensible and judicious people as we get rid of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and Stephen Breyer.

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

Getting It Right The 1st Time

It wasn’t too long ago (like in the last week), I devoted a blog to “Fake News”, and to how the current brand of liberal snowflake media is on par with defending their First Amendment rights has basically taken defending their right to make up stories is akin to yelling “FIRE!” in a crowded theater. And it just happened again.

In case you were busy having a life over the weekend, you probably missed the bombshell that the New York Times, once viewed as “all the news that’s fit to print” tried to lob at the Supreme Court. More precisely, it tried to lob a sexual assault charge at Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Just after the Times made the original indictment against Kavanaugh, every single Democrat running for president chastised him for his “actions”, and recommended that he be impeached. It didn’t take the Times more than a few hours to issue a new story. This time, the Times more correctly reported that yes, someone had accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault (much like the whole Christine Blasey Ford lie), several friends of the supposed victim reported that she didn’t recall the incident happening at all!

And the story has since imploded.

Once again, the media, in an attempt to smear more conservative (and apparently more truthful) members of our society, has made up a story that is false. It bears no witness to reality in any sense of the word. And yet, the only thing the Times will say about their original damning accusation is that the alleged victim refused to be interviewed for their story and said nothing else about the incident. You would have figured a comment like, “The Times regrets the error” at the very least would have been found in their follow up story.

And that is the latest in what has become “freedom of the press”. And much like another part of that First Amendment. We already have Freedom FROM Religion. I’m thinking we may be reaching the point where we need “Freedom FROM The Press”. Yes, it’s important to keep the press free to report to the masses on the happenings of the government, so that the nastiness that is government at times doesn’t get swept under the rug. But when we find that the media is so biased that they are willing to create stories, stories that are so off base that the alleged victim doesn’t even recall the incident happening, and hasn’t even…and won’t even be interviewed for the massacre of a story, that’s where we have to draw the line.

The Grand Old Lady of journalism is a shell of her former self any more. We’ve seen CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, MSNBC, The Washington Post, The New York Times, and countless other liberal bastions of “freedom of the press” guilty time and time again of making up stories to make conservatives look bad. In the end, there isn’t anything there. Where is the sexual rape involving Kavanaugh and Blasey Ford? It never happened. Where is the Russian Collusion involving Donald Trump? It never happened. And now, when a newspaper makes up a story that even the alleged victim doesn’t recall happening, and then refuses to apologize for their dalliance, it’s not just an “oops”. It should be criminal.

But it’s not. The Times, and the other fake news outlets are hiding behind a First Amendment clause that would have the Founding Fathers turning over in their graves. The press was never meant to be free to the point where they made up stories about people they didn’t agree with politically. They are there to cover the truth. Unfortunately, at Journalism Schools at Syracuse, Northwestern, and Missouri to name a few institutions, they’ve forgotten how to find the truth, instead focusing on foisting a liberal bias on Americans that they don’t want.

Maybe that’s the reason why journalists and members of the media have sunk lower in approval than used car salesmen and drug dealers!

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

The Truth Comes Out

You know…the truth usually DOES come out…eventually. Sometimes it takes a few days, or weeks. And in this case, it took a little longer…but the truth came out.

So, why did Christine Blasey Ford come forward with her false accusations of rape and sexual misconduct against then Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh? Well, the answer was revealed the other day by Debra Katz, a very progressive women’s attorney.

Apparently, it wasn’t to seek justice. Blasey Ford knew she hadn’t been raped or molested at some party. That was all an act. It was basically “to put an asterisk next to Kavanaugh’s name in case he ruled against abortion”.

That’s right. It has now come out that yes, the whole thing we watched on TV was a sham. Kavanaugh never molested or raped that woman. She did it because of her fear that he would end up ruling against Roe v. Wade. So, she lied.

She lied to Congress. She lied to the American people. She lied to herself and her family. It was yet another in a very long laundry list of liberal snowflakes believing that the ends justifies the means. And she’s dead wrong.

First and foremost, this woman needs to be brought back before Congress and be slapped with charges of lying to Congress. She needs to face criminal charges for filing a false claim and needs to spend some time in jail with a rather hefty fine. Because if she isn’t held accountable for lying to the American public on this one, every single snowflake out there is going to think they can lie and get away with it if they believe what they are doing is justified because it fits their political beliefs.

It makes me wonder how long the left has really been lying to us. It makes me wonder how many times we’ve been told one thing on purpose, with the left knowing it was a lie. We know damn well that the whole Russian Collusion thing was a set up and a lie. There was nothing factual about that. We know James Comey lied to the American people… and continues to lie to us to this day. We know Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, and yes, Harry Reid all lie on a very consistent basis. We know Barack Obama lied to us constantly when he was president (If you like your doctor…), and continues to lie to us to this day (my administration didn’t have ANY scandals). We know Hillary Clinton lied to us throughout her campaign to be president. She lied about her email server and about no classified emails being sent on it. Hell, we know Bill Clinton lied when he said, “I never had sex with that woman, Miss Lewinsky”.

So, I guess the question then becomes, can we believe anything any liberal says or are they all lies designed to fake America into believing what they want us to believe? Are you saying that there’s no such thing as wiping the student debt away? Is there no such thing a “free college tuition for all”? Is “Medicare for all” a fantasy?

Only when we Americans hold these liars responsible for their untruths are we going to get back to politics as normal. Truth is, after all, the cornerstone and bedrock of any relationship, being it marital, friendly, work-related, or even political. When you lie, you lose all credibility (just ask the mainstream media!). And the left has shown time and time again that they lie to achieve their ends. They should be banned!

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

End Of Civility?

I know, I know. I said that Hillary Clinton was irrelevant and didn’t deserve any more blog space. And I still kind of believe that. But the queen of Chardonnay has thrust herself back into the spotlight by a) announcing the “We’re Back” tour with hubby Bill, and b) making the absurd claim that because Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Supreme Court, it’s an end of civility with Republicans.

Huh?

What is it that we’ve been watching over the last month? Is that what the snowflake left considers civil behavior? If so, they all need to be locked up and given refresher courses in Miss Manners. What we’ve seen from the left over the past month is nothing more than brutish, childish, ignorant behavior, and if Hillary Clinton is believing any different, all I can say is we are blessed that she didn’t get elected president. Every time this woman opens her mouth, I get down on my knees and thank God Almighty that she lost. Can you imagine someone with this lack of decorum and decent behavior elected president? And I thought Trump could be bad at times? Geesh!

Add to that the promise from idiot liberals that claim “This is not over!” because they lost. No…it IS over. He has been confirmed, and based on what I’ve seen in the latest polls, Americans feel that the behavior exhibited by Democrats was terrible and unfair to Kavanaugh and his family…and it wasn’t even close. Something like 60% said that they felt Senate Dems, and the protesters were out of line.

Want more fuel to add to the fire? The left wing TV moguls out there are doing their damndest to make sure Trump never gets any good news. 92% of the news you see on television these days regarding Donald Trump is negative. That by the way, is a new record. You have to go out of your way and make up stories to come up with 92% negative news about just about anybody. OK…maybe Ted Kaczynski or something. Maybe an Adolf Hitler. But any normal American? No way. This is a pure hatred of Donald Trump that we are witnessing that has not been seen in American politics in a very long while. In fact, I’d say it probably beats out the Thomas Jefferson/John Adams feud of the early 1800’s.

And there is a call for an “end to civility”?

Let me put this in the most succinct terms I know how. Elections have consequences. Snowflakes…you nominated a very flawed candidate in 2016. She was a worse candidate than Michael Dukakis. She was a worse candidate than Bob Dole or John McCain. And yes, she was a worse candidate than Donald Trump. I have always contended the two worst candidates in American history faced off in 2016, and I stand by that today. And because you nominated the most-flawed, worst candidate in history, you get what you get. You don’t get to choose the Supreme Court nominee. You don’t get to put judges on the appellate courts or the federal district courts. You don’t control Congress. You have to sit there and take it, just the Republicans had to from 2008 to 2010.

If you decide you don’t like it, get your fat ass off the sofa in your parents’ basement and get registered to vote. But I’ll clue you in on something. The behavior you’ve shown the world in this Kavanaugh confirmation has thrown any “blue wave” right out the window. You’ve energized the Republican base, and you’ve energized a bunch of Independents that frankly could have given a damn about this election before. Now they’re pissed and they’re pissed at you…the 30% of snowflake liberals that don’t know how to behave in public.

And we can all thank God for it!

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

What’s Next After “Kavanaugh”?

I am not sure you’ve heard the latest Democrat plot since the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh turns the Supreme Court decidedly right. Instead of impeaching the latest member of the High Court, Democrats are taking an old page out of FDR’s playbook… pack the court.

Back in 1937, Franklin Delano Roosevelt was disgusted with the way the conservative Supreme Court kept blocking his attempt at socialistic government. So, in an effort to get around them, he decided he would expand the number of justices that sit on the high court, and appoint liberals who would back his policies. That would require both houses of Congress to go along with it, and that’s where it died. The Republican led Congress rose up and squashed the bill.

Well, the leftist snowflake liberals have decided if it didn’t work the last time around, it’s worth another shot (kinda sounds like the Kavanaugh confirmation, doesn’t it?) What they are proposing to do is to take over the House in 2018, take over the Senate in 2020, and win the presidency. Then the new president can expand the size of the Supreme Court to 11, making it more even by adding two more liberal justices.

By the way…it’s legal to do that.

The Constitution makes no mention as to the size of the Supreme Court, and it’s size has indeed changed over the years. The problem the Dems have with this farce of a program is that when one side pulls something like this (they are calling this the “neutron option”), it usually ends up backfiring when the opposition takes over. Need an example? Look at Harry Reid’s blowing up the 60 majority rule and going with simple majority to get Bobo Obama’s appointments to the bench seated. It was great until all of a sudden, the GOP decided to expand that to the Supreme Court and voila…welcome Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh to the court!

In the overall scheme of things, messing with the numbers usually doesn’t lead to any permanent advantage because the balance of power in Washington is always shifting. Liberal snowflakes are upset now, because they see their last stronghold of unchallenged liberalism fading away. And yes, they’ll make it a campaign issue, and yes, they may try to pack the court. They may even succeed at that. But Americans see through that garbage and usually don’t stand for the cheap tricks they try to employ. I’m not saying the GOP is without it’s own cheap tricks…I’m saying the left doesn’t tolerate losing very well. Think of the spoiled kid that didn’t want to give up the touchdown in neighborhood football, and so he goes home and takes the only ball in the area with him. That’s today’s leftist. If they can’t win, they don’t want anyone to play by the rules…they’ll break the rules, change the rules, add rules, whatever they can to gain an advantage.

So, in a couple of years, I’ll be writing a blog that says, “I told you so two years ago!” Just sayin…

Wanted: Leader For Democrat Party. No Experience Necessary.

As I sit out here in the desert, breathing the clean air, and enjoying the sunshine…ok…we had the remnants of Hurricane Jimena sweep by over the past couple of days…but it hit me. The Democrats are all excited about “taking over the House”, which they may or may not do. But their strategies if they are victorious are rather dubious. Let’s explore, shall we?

First of all, let’s tackle the “Maxine Waters” incident. She’s been vociferous about “Impeach 45” since before Trump was elected. OK, let’s play her game. Let’s say the Dems take over the House of Representatives. What happens then is interesting. They want to impeach Donald Trump. There really aren’t any charges that he’s been found guilty of. There has been the Mueller investigation that has found no evidence that we know of, and none of the other investigations by the FBI or Senate or House committees have found one shred of evidence against anything he’s done wrong. Oh, the New York Times has made up a few articles, but they’ve lost all credibility, and really don’t count anymore.

If the House were to impeach Trump, then what happens is that the House files articles of impeachment…the same thing as bringing their charges as to why they are impeaching him. Then it goes to the Senate. The House has “managers” that will basically prosecute Trump, and he will have his own attorneys defend him. The Senate sits as judges and the process is run by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, John Roberts. It requires a simple majority to impeach someone, but two-thirds majority in the Senate to actually convict someone. No one has ever been convicted in the Senate after an impeachment. Andrew Johnson escaped by one vote, and Bill Clinton had 45 votes to convict on the charge of perjury, and 50 votes to convict on charges of obstruction of justice. Both fell way short of the 67 votes needed. it’s unlikely Trump would ever be convicted.

Now let’s move to Kavanaugh. The worst that could happen to Kavanaugh if confirmed by the Senate would be to face the same fate, impeachment. Again, the House would get the articles of impeachment, there is really no evidence, so the Senate would never convict, and he gets off scot-free because of his innocence. Add to that only one sitting Supreme Court justice has ever been impeached…Samuel Chase, and he was never convicted. He ended up dying in the high court.

Everything else the Dems would do would be to obstruct Donald Trump’s agenda for two more years until the 2020 presidential elections. It’ll be kind of like what happened to Obama after 2010’s midterms. Now, is that necessarily a bad thing? Maybe. The wall won’t get built. There won’t be any immigration reform. Healthcare won’t get fixed, and will wither and die on the vine. And there won’t be any new tax cuts. Basically you’ll have gridlock. Is that necessarily a bad thing? Traditionally, I’d say no. The less Congress does in this day and age, the better, but those are things that need to be fixed, and the in-fighting will continue.

The problem is, the Democrats don’t have a leader, so they rely on Nancy Pelosi, who’s a dinosaur and not even assured she’d be able to win back the Speaker’s role in the House, and Chuck Schumer who has been a terrible Minority Leader for the Dems in the Senate. He hasn’t been able to do anything positive in his role since he took over from Harry Reid.

Overall, if you’d like to be the leader of that party, the job is open…you just have to deal with liberal wackjobs and Hillary Clinton constantly…but it pays pretty well, and you get to be on television all the time. Who knows? You probably could line your own pockets like the Clinton’s did, and throw the next Democrat’s primary to your bestest buddy in the world!

Now That Kavanaugh’s In, Can We Focus On Behavior?

There has been an alarming lack of decency coming from the left over the confirmation hearing of Brett Kavanaugh. It came to a head while I was watching the live confirmation vote in the US Senate on Saturday. Vice President, Mike Pence, who was presiding over the session had to repeatedly gavel down ignorant and loud-mouthed protesters who wanted to shout their opposition to the vote. Time and time again, Pence had to ask the Sergeant Of Arms to restore order in the gallery. Meanwhile, outside on the Capitol steps, hundreds of protesters were screaming their angry chants.

Senators have been accosted in elevators, harassed in the airport, denied a chance to have dinner in restaurants because liberal snowflakes decided that their right to voice their displeasure and act like total jerks was more important than the Senator’s rights to lead somewhat of a normal life.

But the behavior of those on the left is totally hypocritical when you listen to the left complain that Brett Kavanaugh’s behavior in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee was “conduct unbecoming a Justice of the Supreme Court”. It’s OK when Democrat Senators can call Kavanaugh and his family all the names in the book. But when he dared to question their ability to talk to him in a like manner, it was untoward.

The actions taken by protesters, Senators, and yes, even Christine Ford and her attorneys is unconscionable. They are rude, crude, totally obnoxious, and totally devoid of what is considered good behavior in this country. It’s one thing to protest, and I stand by their right to do that. It’s quite another to act like total morons because you didn’t get your way.

So, now that Kavanaugh is on the bench, and the confirmation vote is over, my question is, do you think the left is going to learn how to act in a civilized manner? Or, as I assume, are they going to be total jerks and asses that don’t know how to act. I have a lady that I went to high school with that used to lambaste me because I would call Barack Obama “Bobo” as in the World’s Second Most Famous Clown (Bozo of course was the MOST famous clown!), and she called me mean spirited for using the term “snowflakes”. I often wonder as she watched the behavior the left displayed over the past couple of weeks whether or not she was ashamed to have sided with that group, or whether she just felt the conservatives were still “mean spirited”.

I don’t think Donald Trump should have mocked Ford during a rally. That was unpresidential and wrong. And as I have said over and over again, it’s the one thing I wish he didn’t do. But then I realize it’s probably the one thing that got him elected over Hillary. Still, I really don’t appreciate that type of attitude from our president, and I think he should stop. He needs to set an example for the nation. By him bad mouthing and mocking the left at every turn, he basically is giving them permission to do the same. And it’s a very slippery spiral. It’s a downward slope I’m not sure we as a nation can come back from. And I hope I’m wrong.

But still, the way the left behaved during the past couple of weeks, the lies, the distortions, the accusations without any hint of proof or corroboration, complete with the name calling, all in the name of politics is completely wrong. I get it you don’t want another conservative on the bench. But that doesn’t give you the right to use any means necessary, as Chuck Schumer said, to try and torpedo the nomination. Republicans have never done that to a Democrat nominee. But you don’t have to go far to see this is just a page out of the Democrats’ playbook. It didn’t work the last time they tried it either. Clarence Thomas was approved for the high court after they had another sexual abuse claim…also false. And of course, the whole Robert Bork incident which led to Anthony Kennedy being nominated to the Supreme Court in the first place. Just think of how different this country would be had Bork been seated instead of Kennedy!

We can hope the left can learn to grow up and act like adults. Something tells me we’re doomed to watching them act like two year olds for quite a while!
