These days, it’s hard to open the paper in the morning, or turn on the TV and listen to the talking heads, because they all seems to do nothing but tear down our great nation. Trump hatred is ubiquitous and even if folks don’t actually hate him, they are afraid of saying anything nice about this, the greatest nation the earth has ever known.
From the founding, to the current day, the human spirit that longs for liberty and freedom has been drawn to this unique country. The hordes crossing the border should tell us something about the exceptionalism of this place.
“The War on History: The Conspiracy to Rewrite America’s Past” by Jarrett Stepman will remind what giants built this country and ensured we still have these rights and freedoms. Countering all the foolish, short sighted claims of the leftists and the New York Times 1619 Project which is naughty but an attempt to paint our founding as racist and built on nothing but slavery.
It’s a must read for those of us who are sick of hearing that we are all bigots, racists, and this nation is a big fat Nothing.
Make lots of popcorn. I’m thinking on Tuesday when the trial is scheduled to begin, I’ll be sitting with the TV on and getting ready to enjoy the show. One thing for sure, the Senators are the jurors, and they aren’t allowed to talk the case over among themselves, so most of them probably already have decided which way they intend to vote.
If they do actually get around to calling witnesses, you can be assured of fireworks. The House impeachment managers should be fact witnesses in this whole thing, and I guess the Chief Justice will be called upon to make a decision about whether or not they can be called as witnesses. And, others need to be subpoenaed still if they are likely to testify. Lev Parnas surely wants to testify, although he wasn’t part of the initial impeachment proceeding in the House, so I don’t know how that’s going to go.
Remember, Impeachment is normally for “treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.” But it’s a totally partisan exercise wherein no crime has been alleged, no victim has claimed so, and it’s all based on hearsay evidence which isn’t normally even allowed in a court of law.
This is the highest sort of court of law!
So, let’s get started.
For some reason, I’m having to start all over again, after having lost hosting account, because their support just wasn’t there when things quit working and my email wasn’t coming.
I could restore old things, but I expect I have other things to say now. And I’m reading one heck of a good book about the erasing of history, and how the leftists and educators have messed with the heads of the young for decades. More on that later.
