Good Democrats – Take Your Party Back

in The Political Slant by

*As a nation watched, the recent Senate Confirmation process for a United States Supreme Court nominee was reduced from “he’ll sail right through”, to a cruel and calculated political hit against one of the finest jurists this country has ever produced.  It is important to understand, here, that the drama on display was not ever about Judge Brett Kavanaugh in the first place, at all, but about just how far off the rails the Senate Democrats have gone, and on top of that, about the #metoo movement being weaponized against a conservative man in his quest to faithfully serve.

Trump Impeachment – The Establishment’s Double Standard

in The Political Slant by
Impeachment

*After bang, bang, bang, bang banging, bang banging away for two years, those who viciously hate the current Republican US President, Donald Trump, have come up with an aging porn queen, a smarmy and cowardly lawyer not savvy enough to know where his bread was ultimately buttered, a man who helped lead the Trump campaign for under a year, and whose troubles have nothing at all to do with Russia, or Trump, a guy with space aliens and six-headed monsters for “news items” who’s sought immunity from the dirty deeds of Trump haters, and a handful of indicted Russians (Mother Russia is well known and admired for its cooperativeness in extradition, after all).  And for having dug these things up by way of their two-year-long daily trolling for dirt, these people are smugly smiling into cameras using words like “scandal”, “impeachable”, “unfit” and so on, while rank and file liberals jump for joy. Thinking that this will all ruin President Trump, however, is as laughable as the notion that the National Enquirer is a journalistic enterprise, or that much of anything in print and electronic media are anymore either, for that matter.

In reality, none of what has been unearthed, and none of what may spawn out of it all in the months ahead, is likely to even come close to bringing President Trump down and will, instead, just continue to piss him the hell off, and the tens of millions of decent patriotic Americans who support him, too.

Cuomo & Nixon – 2 Toxic Tickets for New York

in The Political Slant by

*Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York on Wednesday said, while addressing an audience on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, “We’re not going to make America great again,” adding “It was never that great.

His challenger in the empire state’s Democratic primary, Cynthia Nixon (of Sex and the City fame) stated that the governor seems to struggle with ‘how progressives speak’.

Well, Nixon would do well to understand that most progressives do not have the clarity of mind that she does, and that this is exactly how most progressives do speak. Keep Reading

Hogg Wild – The Arrogance of Youth

in The Political Slant by
David Hogg - Hogg Wild
A government that exists of, by, for and through its people, and at the same time stands as a land of law, not of men, is as difficult a thing to manage as it gets, and no where is this more onerous than on the issue of guns in America.  Common sense solutions to gun violence are at hand, but stomping out into the public arena with such blinding chicanery and political opportunism as seen with anti-gun Democrats, on a continuum, gets directly in the way of those common sense solutions we all should seek in compromise and unity.

••••••

For David Hogg to be held up as a poster child of choice for gun control, at the hands of puppet masters with axes to grind, is a terrible mistake, and a readily identifiable one.

••••••

By directly attacking an American President and Commander in Chief of the United States Armed Forces on such a preeminent and potentially dangerous issue as Iran, by way of propping up and trotting out someone so far out of his league it hurts to watch, done with such vitriol, disdain and mockery of the office of the presidency, ought to sound a death knell for such activism, activism that uses death tolls strictly for political benefit.

NFL Protest Hypocrisy – A Foolish Irony

in The Political Slant by

NEW YORK — Professional athletes have every right to protest law enforcement during the singing of our national anthem at sporting events. We can picture the conversations between players and coaches where a guy like Colin Kaepernick would insist that he’d feel like a fake, like a complete phony, if he were to put his hand over his heart to honor a country that he feels continues to treat people of African descent unfairly, or minority groups in general.  

Understood. And on some level Mr. Kaepernick should be commended for staying true to his beliefs. It is also easy to see why coaches, team managers and owners have not seen it fit to scorn anyone who refuses to do that which they feel uncomfortable; that which they see as going along with empty and hollow symbolism for a country they do not deem as worth honoring, or worth respecting in moments such as these.

No, they should not be forced to stand at attention, hand over heart, for the singing of an anthem they simply don’t believe in, and no one, anywhere, should be demanding that they do.  

The problem is not in these players taking a knee in protest of American law enforcement or America at large. The problem goes much deeper than such things, and is multifold.

The Woodshed – A Reckoning for Fake News

in The Political Slant by
FNN: Fake News Network

NEW YORK — President George Walker Bush comported himself in the exact opposite manner as the current American President, Donald John Trump, did on the campaign trail of 2016 and does as president.  President Bush’s countenance and demeanor, from day one until he left office, always placed him up high on the high road, never a cross word, always respectful and decent in his approach to the office of the presidency, and to the media.  He treated the fourth estate with dignity, even reverence, presumably out of a healthy respect for the 1st amendment, tempered with a non-confrontational style.  

He was a class act, regardless of how anyone judged his policies – right or wrong, we know that he did not speak brashly and churlishly, ever, or anything resembling disdain.  And what did that get him?  The media painted him the fool at every turn.  President George W Bush was so viciously attacked so regularly that it brought his father to tears, his father, a man who’d seen it all, welled up with tears at the treatment of the 43rd American President who happened to be his son.

 The venomous and vitriolic ways in which leading Democrats and the media treated that Republican President should stand as a lesson for us all, now, with the most recent sitting Republican US President since his tenure ended.   

The mean-spirited, dishonest and intellectually bankrupt way in which President Trump is being treated by media elites has very little to do with Mr. Trump himself, but has to do with the fact that he has an R after his name.
