Our Attorney Problem, Pt. 5

July 28, 2020

Today’s hearings of the House Judiciary Committee were disgraceful with House Democrats peppering Attorney General William Bar with questions demanding Yes or No answers.

We should not have been surprised!

CNN and MSNBC have led the charge giving Democrat Members of the Committee all the zingers they needed to rankle the composure of Attorney General Barr and Ranking Member, Jim Jordan.

Jordan gave a vigorous defense, but was blocked by Committee Chairman, Gerrold Nadler, from bringing civility to the Hearing. If this seemed bad, wait until the Democrats retake the United States Senate in the 2020 election.

But, we should not expect a Committee composed of attorneys to turn attention to the real problem.  Our New Class of “Attorneys” is out of control.

I have commented on that at least four times since November 2019:

That attorneys are a problem was first noticed by William Shakespeare.

More recently, their ugly faces were exposed as aggressive prosecutors sought, and judges dispensed, jail time for parents caught up in the “Varsity Blues” scandals.

Representative of our Attorney Problem is Joyce Vance,  professor of law at the University of Alabama’s law school.  Contracted as a paid commentator by MSNBC, Ms. Vance can be seen frequently giving “Progressive” views on issues concerning the administration of justice.

Appointed a United States Attorney by President Barack Obama, Vance immediately placed civil rights enforcement front and center as a duty of her office.

That form of self-righteousness motivates our Attorney Problem as much as the Progressive ideology that treats the Constitution of the United States as a living document, not a document that places fixed limits on the national government.

Trump Broadens Attack on PRC

July 27, 2020

The release of the Coronavirus by Communist China was devastating to the economy of the United States and that the totalitarian regime hid the facts from its trading partners was unforgivable.

The response of President Trump was outlined by U.S. Secretary of State at the Nixon Library on July 23, 2020. Policy toward Communist China first established by Richard Nixon is now reversed–permanently.

Here is a transcript of that important policy statement.

Parallel Lives

July 26, 2020

The moving religious services for Cong. John Lewis were reminiscent of the funeral for Whitney Houston. Ms. Houston was an accomplished singer and actress. Who can forget her performance in the 1992 feature film, The Bodyguard, with Kevin Costner?  Her artistry made the film come alive when she sang I Will Always Love You.

For me, the lament of Rev. Al Sharpton at that funeral, said it all: “The music industry must learn how to protect these young singers from church choirs.”

John Lewis made another Christian journey, from Chairman of SNCC in 1966–67, where he advocated “non-violence,” and was replaced by Black Power advocate Stokely Carmichael , as SNCC chairman.

Lewis was the youngest speaker at the 1963 March on Washington organized by Martin Luther King and leader of civil rights demonstrations. At one such event, Lewis was beaten unconscious in a brutal attack by Alabama State Police in Selma, Alabama on March 7, 1965. In 1977 Lewis served at ACTION in the Carter Administration and from 1981 to 1987 Lewis served on the Atlanta, Georgia City Council. He was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1986, defeating Julian Bond with vicious attacks, and served in Congress until his death.

The struggle of African Americans for equal status with white citizens parallels the struggle of my own Armenian family. When the Ottoman Empire was destroyed in World War I, Turkish Islamic radicals declared a fatwa against Armenian Christians. That compelled my grandmother and her two sisters to walk from Aleppo, Syria to Cairo, Egypt.  Fortunately, she was able to emigrate from Cairo to the United States. Turkish rule in Armenia was harsh. Armenians were required to speak Turkish and the Young Turks under Kemal Attaturk continued the suppression of religious worship by Armenian Christians. My grandfather was compelled by his circumstances in Aintab, Turkey to become an acculturated Turk.

My father, son of Hagop and Sarah Bishirjian, spoke only Turkish until he went to public school in Troy, New York.

My father, his brother and two sisters, were dark complexioned, but were accepted as “white.” Had their father and mother not emigrated to America, their lives would have been worse than the lives of African Americans in the United States
