Politically Speaking – September 18, 2018
First and foremost this week is Hurricane Florence that’s already claimed lives and created great devastation for men, women, children and beasts. And it’s not going to be over in a few days. Tropical Depression Florence has caused heavy flooding and wind damage in the Carolinas. Residents will face the heavy challenges of cleaning up, repairing and rebuilding their lives for a long time.
If you want to help there are some suggestions below. Sending money is the best way to help, and North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper announced that the State is accepting donations to help meet the immediate needs of the people affected by the hurricanes. You can contribute online or by texting Florence to 20222. And there’s the Red Cross where you can donate online or by calling 1-800-RED-CROSS or texting RED CROSS to 90999. If you send donations to the United Way, one hundred percent of your individual donation will go to local United Way groups. The Charleston Animal Society, and area shelters are also encouraging people outside the affected storm area to foster or adopt.
My thoughts and prayers are with the folks in Florence’s path.
On to the last week’s craziness. First up, Paul Manafort flips. One of the leaders of the resistance group, Adam (Shifty) Schiff (D), U. S. Representative for California’s 28th Congressional District, said last week that, “Paul Manafort is the most likely to help us.” If I had interviewed him I would have asked him, “Who is us?” Of course, liberal Chuck Todd of Meet the Press let that one slide. But what’s new!
Schiff also said last week, “Any move to pardon Manafort, or dangle a pardon, would be a further act of obstruction of justice.” Sorry folks, but coming from this wide-eyed wonder it’s almost a joke, if it weren’t so sad.
The fact is Manafort did take a plea deal and will cooperate with Special counsel. He’s 69 years old, looking at ten years and spending 23 hours a day in solitary confinement. A White House spokesman has said this has “nothing to do” with the President.
And rest assured, as long as this witch hunt has gone on, if there was any collusion we would already know it. God knows the Democrats have looked under every rock.
On to Diane Feinstein. At the last minute (before the final vote to confirm Kavanaugh) she sent a letter to the Justice Department accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, allegedly, when he was in high school. Of course, Ms. Feinstein has had this letter since July (three months). She’s just now bringing it to the table. She said the letter came from a woman who wanted to stay anonymous, and declined to detail the letter’s content. Are they serious?
This letter allegedly was coordinated by Stanford University, where Adam Schiff attended from 1978 to 1982. Imagine that!
Oh, the webs they weave. In my mind this is an all time low. Future Justice Kavanaugh has been through six FBI background checks and nothing has been found.
The whole hearing of Brett Kavanaugh has been a three-ring circus, a disgrace. No fair-minded citizen can disagree that Kavanaugh is more than qualified. During the hearings the Democrats violated every rule. There were 240 protesters who interrupted these hearings.
It went from bad to worse. The problem, in my opinion, they want activist liberal judges, those who will continue to rewrite the Constitution.
So can a letter containing an alleged 35-year-old secret derail this nomination? NO! The vote, in my opinion, will be straight down party lines and Kavanaugh will be confirmed! And so he should be! At press time the alleged accuser of Brett Kavanaugh for sexual misconduct has come forward. She is a professor at a University in California and only “remembered” the incident in 2012, six years ago. That says it all! This is a last ditch effort to stop the confirmation.
These are very dangerous times, my friends. let me leave you this week with a quote from a wise man. I have used the phrase a number of times — extreme liberals. And last week I had a closer look at people like Diane Feinstein, Adam Schiff, and a number of others. Referring to Diane Feinstein, one of my friends pointed out, “She is not liberal, none of them are. They are totalitarian fascist communists hiding under a label.”
And coming from another wise man last week, another profound statement, “In a generation no one will recognize the country.” To that I also agree, if it keeps going the way it’s going.
Until next week.
