Quick “Take” on Politics, Part 2

September 24, 2021

One can never be certain if reality will penetrate “group think” with Republican voters. George W. Bush invaded Iraq to applause and recently even Fox News has trotted out Mike Pompeo and Chris Christie for their views.

In the best of all worlds, Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) and Tom Cotton (R-AR) would be the designated voices of Republicans–not Pompeo or Christie.

And here’s the theme they would articulate:

Impeach and Roundup!

The 2022 “by-election” promises a blowout of Democrat members of Congress and immediate efforts to Impeach and Convict President Biden. With that underway, efforts will be made to legislate a roundup and expulsion of two hundred thousand illegals from across the country.

Forget recent efforts to downsize police. In 2023 through 2024 special police will be recruited to assist ICE in rounding up illegal aliens.

That is what American voters want and what Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) and Tom Cotton (R-AR) should advocate—NOW.  

Quick “Take” on Politics

September 19, 2021

The future of American politics between now and 2024 appears quite predictable.

Even without the recent demonstration of incompetence by Joe Biden, the 2022 elections promise to be a “blowout.”  Democrats will be replaced by historic GOP majorities in the Congress paving the way for a vigorous Trump campaign for President.

Unfortunately the GOP has no backbench.

It’s Trump—or else—and Mike Pompeo and Chris Christie are so weak as to be laughable.

Trump’s clear insufficiency evident in his loss to Biden assures that the next Presidential election could be a close one.

Trump, however, is prepared to “take” a win by unconstitutional action similar to the events on January 6 thus assuring that the year 2023 will be a year of political ignominy.

I advise family to prepare for civil unrest. Convert cash to gems and gold, stock up on ammunition and some of those meals that last twenty-five years and expect the PRC and Iran to test Biden’s resolve.

Stupid Democrats, Liberals and Internationalists

September 15, 2021

Over the years, I’ve been embarrassed by acts and deeds of some Republican “Leaders.”

President Nixon’s cover-up of the break-in at the Watergate, Barry Goldwater’s radical acceptance speech, Ronald Reagan’s choice of George H. W. Bush as his Vice President and acceptance of James Baker as Chief of Staff, deferential acceptance of John McCain because he was a “POW,” Mitt Romney’s Calvinistic sanctity and, of course, Donald Trump’s embarrassing ignorance of the Constitution, all worked to upset my love for American elections and the Party of limited government.

When my Party was referred to as “stupid,” however, I bridled.

As a principled political conservative, I had studied and taught Constitutional Law and had been elected a Republican “Committeeman” in Tarrytown, New York. That’s the lowest Party office requiring election by registered voters, but I wanted to help my local Party.

“We” were called “stupid” because we opposed “Liberal” policies of a series of Democrat Presidents from JFK to Jimmy Carter and Bush Republicans.

Here’s a picture of the “Globalists” elected President of the United States. The woman in this picture is “Lady Gaga.” I admit I voted for every Republican in this photo.

But their “days in the sun” are over.

From the former Soviet satellite nations to cities in the United States where Democrats have been in power since the Great Depression, a new birth of freedom is finding expression in national identity and national, versus “International” interest.

Wealthy and Stupid

September 13, 2021

The New York Times reports on September 12 on parents who bribed college officials to obtain admission of their children to the University of California, Harvard and Stanford as athletes. The money paid was significant–$300k to obtain admission for a daughter and $220k for admission of a son to USC –plus $1.5 million to obtain admission of two daughters to Harvard and Stanford.

Parents so accused are easy “marks” for scapegoating because of the sums they were willing to pay and what the fathers did for a living; one was a casino operator and the other a private equity manager.

They had money to burn, no understanding of what “education” entails and will now pay for these actions with jail time.

In 2019 I assessed this tragedy when Felicity Hoffman was sentenced to prison and Lori Loughlin was threatened with forty years of prison if she did not admit guilt.

Greater blame must be placed on our very corrupt system of “higher” education.

That corruption is systemic and endangers our young people.

Lest we forget, Socrates was charged for corrupting the youth of Athens.
