So this is justice?

CBS Evening News reported (23 Jan 2020) this from a White House source: “One Trump confidant tells CBS news that GOP Senators have been warned: ‘Vote against the president, and your head will be on a pike.’” The New York Times picked up the story the following day. Perhaps a note on ...

Bernie

Bernie Sanders is on the record, but even more importantly on videotape (from Aug. 8, 1985 and June 13, 1988) uncritically publicly praising the so-called virtues of communist dictatorships in Cuba under Fidel Castro, in Nicaragua under Daniel Ortega, and in the Soviet Union under totalitarian ...

The Impeachment of the House

During the House impeachment vote of Donald J. Trump, 45th president of the United States, Trump told a rally crowd in Michigan, “It doesn’t really feel like we’re being impeached!” Trump was being funny. But what he said is true. Trump didn’t feel like he was being impeached. And ...

Wealth tax

This might surprise you, but in 1999 Donald Trump proposed the passage of a “National Wealth Tax” of 14.25 percent on all individuals with a net worth and net wealth of $10 million and higher. You can look it up online. Wealth differs from income. He wanted the money generated from it ...

Senate trial

The Senate sits in the trial on impeachment as both judge and jury. What should we expect of our Senators? As judges, should they accept for trial a case in which the defendant was denied representation at the grand jury; the prosecution based charges on hearsay and the only eyewitness ...

Blown open

This writing will be an effort to reveal what I believe to be further corruption in Washington at the highest levels starting with the Obama presidency. Partners in this were not only Obama’s “deep state” which tried and is continuing to unseat President Trump, in my opinion, but the ...

Secession from America

Michael Goodwin’s recent column appearing in the New York Post titled, “The Left’s Unfixable Extremism,” in which he reviews F.H. Buckley’s new book, “American Secession,” is both thought-provoking and germane to the events of our times. Buckley and Goodwin take a look at the two ...

Which taxes are the fairest?

A recent letter argued that eliminating the earned income tax and increasing real estate tax to offset the loss would be fairer for taxpayers. My question is, “fairer” for whom? Since there were some terms recklessly thrown about in that letter, let’s start by defining a few of those ...

A few questions to Democrats

Are you aware of the sub-human tactics used by the Mexican drug cartels on both sides of the border? Are you aware that last November, six children and women, all U.S. citizens, were attacked and burned to death in their cars by a Mexican drug cartel? Do you think sanctuary cities make the ...

Solemnity

I wonder if people at a certain cable news network know the meaning of the words “gravitas” and “solemnity,” given the cavalier way they’re handling coverage of the impeachment trial. Airing a split screen with constant commentary over the speech for the prosecution, and including ...

Best of times

When you hear Democrats on the campaign trail (or in office) tell us how horrible of a nation we live in, I laugh. Then I realize it is not a laughing matter. These people hope to replace a system that has delivered the best of times with a system that has a 100-percent failure rate: ...

Passage of the USMCA

The USMCA has passed the U.S. House and Senate with nearly 90 percent voting in favor. This trade agreement seems to be almost universally praised as something that will benefit farmers and manufacturing industries. Time will tell. Trade policies of the last 50 years have led to outcomes that ...

Corruption

The Republican majority in the United States Senate is going to refuse to remove from office the President of the United States, bringing to an end the impeachment trial. Perhaps, because the charges against the President involve matters of foreign affairs and national politics they have not ...

If the communists invade America

During World War II, the Japanese did not try to invade America because they knew that many Americans owned guns. Switzerland was never invaded by Germany during the two European wars because Swiss citizens are armed with semi-automatic and automatic rifles. In Switzerland, “assault rifle” ...

The year 2020

Well, it is 2020, an election year. Look out for the fireworks that will begin soon as the race really heats up for the Presidential election. The Democrats are foaming at the mouth to upend the apple cart by defeating President Trump and will go to any means to accomplish their goal. They are ...

Credibility?

On the letter about credibility... What makes you the reason of who speaks truth? So the media doesn’t follow the Nancy Pelosis of the world around as if she were a Democratic president, do you? Who are you to say, “You know this is true because Nancy Pelosi said so.” Wow! Broaden your ...

No. 1 ‘nemesis’

I fear the Republican Party members of the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate. They are my No. One “nemesis.” They are much more “conservative” than are the conservative-Republican citizens whom they are supposed to represent. While research indicates that 63 percent ...

What’s the cost?

Could someone tell me how much does it cost to investigate impeachment of Trump? I’m tired of Democrats wasting my hard-earned tax money to impeach Donald Trump. Here is my list of U.S. presidents who I believe should have been impeached: 1) Obama for selling uranium to Russia in Iran. 2) ...

Achievements of women in medicine

National Women Physicians Day on Monday celebrated the birthday of Elizabeth Blackwell, our country’s first female medical doctor. We also recognized the progress and achievements of women in the medical field since Dr. Blackwell earned her degree in 1849. More than 600 female physicians at ...

Among many quotes

Among the many quotes from our president, the one I found most revealing was: “Would you be able to do us a favor, though?” It is asked of the new president of Ukraine just as he has begun a term in office. The young man wants to do a good job in the demanding challenge he has had little ...
