America’s Immigration Conundrum – 13 Million is Enough

*We need some major fake news at this point in time. We need to announce that there is a crowd of immigrants marching through the U.S. towards Mexico, and we’re not going to do anything to stop them. In fact, we will feed them and offer them assistance as long as they don’t stay in the U.S. This mob consists of people dissatisfied with their economic prospects, and they have learned that life in Mexico is free from gangs, murderers, and corrupt governments. (We are under no obligation to disabuse them of this belief.) No matter what the Mexican laws are, we, the U.S., do not care, because as long as the crowd doesn’t stay in the U.S., as long as they leave, everything is great. They can march through the U.S. to Mexico unencumbered. In fact, if they want to pick up some U.S. gangsters along the way, that’s good too.

Just what would Mexico do if the situation was reversed? One of the tools of critical thinking (I’m not going to get too Hegelian on you here) is to reverse the situation and see how it looks. Taking the perspective of a different person can expand one’s viewpoint and help understand where someone is coming from, so let’s look at the folks coming north to the (Democrat promised) promised land.

Left Wing Violence

The Political Slant by

*Johnny Depp, the actor, asked a raucous audience one day “When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?“.  He immediately asserted that he, himself, is not really an actor, but that he’s just a guy who “lies for a living”, adding “however, it’s been a while, maybe it’s time”.  No, Mr. Depp, you do not lie for a living, you are, in fact, an actor, although you certainly do lie through your teeth about politics and life in general outside of your chosen profession.

Johnny Depp is a terrible liar day to day, yes, like much of the left wing is, and he’s very clearly got missing pieces, damn dumb, actually.  He incited violence that day, or, certainly, violent thought processes.  Perhaps he steeped his own persona too deeply in a pirate’s life, and he is barely any better than one, if better at all.  Talk of it being time for an actor to assassinate a sitting US President ought to have had him arrested by the time he got off that stage surrounded by his lowlife fans (anyone who whoops it up, laughs, cheers and claps at the notion of killing anyone, including President Trump, are lowlifes).

Those who accuse President Trump today of fomenting violence didn’t bat a lash at Depp’s rant.

Impeachment Process

Impeachment is a Process

The Political Slant by

*Our Founding Fathers lived through the wrongs of Europe and knew what they wanted for this country. No one is above the law or our Constitution. No one.

In 1999, part of the media and religious groups focused on Bill Clinton’s infidelity as justification for initiating (charging him) his impeachment. The House charged him with perjury and obstruction of justice. The Senate needed 67 votes to remove him ended up with only 50 and 45 votes to remove him from obstruction of justice and perjury respectively.

Under Article 1, Section 2 of the Constitution, the House of Representatives has the sole power of initiating the process of impeachment. The House drafts the articles of impeachment of a President based on any charges of the constitutional standard of treason, bribery or other high crimes and misdemeanors.

The Constitution’s Section 3 grants the Senate the sole power to bring to trial all impeachments and convicts or dismisses the charges based on the articles. It takes the concurrence of two-thirds’ of senators to convict and remove an official. To date, no president has been removed from office by impeachment and conviction.

Good Democrats – Take Your Party Back

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.

pro life pro choice decision

PRO-LIFE/PRO-CHOICE DECISION

*Stealth marketing and masked political statements have made Roe v. Wade/Abortion a veiled issue in most elections. The pro-life, pro-choice debate never happened because of the distraction of money. Sure, there has been talking, yapping, yelling, arguing, but no debate.

Before reading any further, from one to 10 rate these factors according to values. Keep Reading

Kavanaugh Hysteria

*On Saturday, October 6, Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed by the Senate for a seat on the Supreme Court of the United States, but not without controversy. Mr. Kavanaugh faced charges for something that he supposedly did thirty-five years ago. The “star witness” against Mr. Kavanaugh was someone who stereotypically not only sides with, but openly advocates the liberal agenda, a college professor. I’ll just rack that one up to another strange coincidence in life.

Would you like to be denied a job for which you have strived for your whole life because someone claims you did something thirty-five years ago, has virtually no evidence, no corroborating witnesses, and openly dislikes you, bringing up the issue at a last-minute?

While Supreme Court justices are held in high regard, there are other, shall we say, “judiciary figures” with personal “agendas” who are, in my estimation, some of the most despicable authorities in this nation. Keep Reading

Impeachment

Trump Impeachment – The Establishment’s Double Standard

The Political Slant by

*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.

Colin Kaepernick

Constitutional Confrontation – Kaepernick’s Protest

*All men are created equal, and Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of speech, or the right of the people to assemble peaceably, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.  These parts of the Constitution appears to trouble many Americans.

We respond to our emotions sometimes more quickly than others. It is hard to do the right thing when you we not know what the right thing is. We do not want to impose on others what we do not wish for ourselves as universal law of the Golden Rule.

We learn to stand for the National Anthem from custom, not law. The formal standard has been; stand, remove hats and place your right hand over your heart. As eyes or television cameras scroll the coinurts or stadiums, persons are talking, holding their drinks, and wearing hats. Such lack of attention causes heartburn to the point of almost saying, “Hey Butthole, respect the flag, respect the anthem, respect those that fought for America. Take off your hat; aren’t you American?

The question answers itself. The buttholes may be visitors, not American. Colin Kaepernick, a black football player, is now accused of being un-American. With little attention to our Constitution, what has taken issue is the interpretation of those that have fought for our flag and respect for our national anthem.

September 11th

9/11 ROSEMARY PLUS ONE

*The terrorist actions of 9/11/2001 are chronic and ever-present. We share a common duty to honor and remember those suffering through unimaginable death. Deeply distressing is that the hallowed annual readings throughout cities in America of victims have missing names and the count of souls has not come to an end.

This year’s Police Memorial Ceremony at the nation’s capital in May, chilled attendants from the announcement of the 2017 deceased local, state and federal officers fallen ill from toxic exposure at Ground Zero while saving lives, retrieving bodies, and securing evidence or vestiges; evidence our environment relates to our health.

Much like Hurricane Maria’s first reported 64 deaths in Puerto Rico to the number of 2,975, twenty-three New York City Police officers died at the World Trade Center on September 11, but in the last 17 years, 156 have perished from noxious illnesses. From the 343 firefighters that died on 9/11, there have been 182 more deaths reported. The FBI registers 15 additional FBI Agents that have died related to 9/11. The count at the Pentagon needs adjustment.

Rosa Maria (Rosemary) Chapa at age 64 had talked to her husband JJ about retirement yet like any other Tuesday, went to work at the Pentagon. Her office had recently moved to the renovated west side of the first floor, Office of the Comptroller for the Defense Intelligence Agency. Osama Bin Laden’s Al Qaeda took her highly spirited, giving and determined life with 183 other souls, 59 were aboard American Airlines flight 77.

She left behind her husband, five children and her dog Lucky.

Cuomo & Nixon – 2 Toxic Tickets for New York

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
