I haven’t written anything for a while – between work and a death in the wife’s family, there hasn’t been much time to write. But just listening to the news is enough for me to do a slow burn. For instance…
The Hildebeast’s response to a Congressional inquiry to in her private email server’s contents is to wipe the server’s hard drives. Since the Hidlebeast was using this same server for government business when she was Secretary of State, the emails were not hers to delete, but needed to be reviewed by Congress as to their relevancy to her former position. I don’t know how many Federal laws she has broken in her 1) using a private, potentially unsecure, server for government business, 2) deleting said records and emails, 3) failing to sign her exit papers, and 4) obstructing a Congressional inquiry/investigation. For the Democrats to keep promoting the Hildebeast as a potential Presidential candidate is disgusting given this latest action and the history of this person. However, if she does become the next President, expect more of the same actions as the current President, only worse.
The Bergdahl case has taken another turn for the worse for the Administration. Bergdahl has been charged with desertion and “misbehaving before the enemy”, the last being almost equivalent to treason. This entire case has shown that this Administration has gotten the entire Bergdahl case wrong, and not only wrong, but with potentially disastrous results.
While the talking heads at the White House (Earnest, Psaki, Harf, and Carney) have all spun trading five terrorists for one soldier narrative every possible way (including calling it a “good deal”), the facts remains that this person was a suspected deserter from day one, multiple soldiers were killed or injured looking for this person, and the President illegally released said terrorists from detention. Not a good move, Mr. President…
Negotiating with Iran concerning their nuclear program will not bear any lasting agreements. Iran is hell-bent on developing nuclear capabilities for both weapons and power generation, although it is for the weapons that they really want. Iran’s stated policy is to remove Israel from the map, and to promote (dictate) their version of Islam throughout the region. With these goals in mind, can anyone realistically expect Iran to negotiate and agree upon anything in good faith?
Last thought on this subject – The nuclear “deal” with Iran has a deadline of Tuesday, March 31. Too bad it’s not due until the next day because it would have been very appropriate.
Harry Reid is stepping down from the Senate. Good riddance… I now wonder who will replace this most insidiously corrupt politician – Schumer, Durbin, or some other power-hungry elitist politician that is just as corrupt as Reid is…
I saw in the news that a person (who is black and has a criminal history) has been shot and killed by police. The Boston faction of Black Lives Matter is making a big stink about this. This shouldn’t fly too far – this person was shot after he shot a police officer in the face. But then again, facts do not seem to matter in such cases…
One of the Left’s latest darlings is Lena Dunham, star of HBO’s “Girls”. She has admitted in her book to committing some disgusting acts with her sister, and lied about being raped by a “Republican” student – all yawned at by the Liberal establishment. Now she has written an article in “The New Yorker” in which she poses a quiz about who she is asking the question about – a dog or her Jewish boyfriend.
Now this is stirring up some discussion, but not by the hard-core Liberals. Apparently, for these people, the more shocking and depraved the action is or the conversation, the better it is. Comparing the actions of dogs and Jews is never acceptable, even in jest.
If a conservative person had written such an article, the Left would have been first in line howling for blood. But since it is one of their own, it’s OK and she deserves a pass. Unbelievable…or maybe not…
My home state of Indiana has passed their version of a Religious Freedom law, and the Liberals are losing their minds. I thought Lawrence Meyers for Townhall.com states it best (excerpts from the article follow – please read to get the full effect):
Indiana’s Religious Freedom Law is not anti-gay. It is not anti-Black. It is not anti-Semitic. It is, however, pro-religion and pro-freedom and that’s why Leftists hate it.
The law is explicit. The government cannot substantially burden anyone from exercising one’s religion. If it does so, it must “further a compelling government interest and be the least restrictive means of furthering that interest.”
This is no different than the laws in 19 other states, and the Federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act that passed in 1993 – by unanimous vote in the House, 97-3 in the Senate, and signed by the ultra-Right-wing-nutjob Bill Clinton.
Anything involving a public service isn’t going to be denied to a gay person. Furthermore, if a person or a company or religious organization engages in any kind of discrimination for “religious reasons”, the courts apply the test of “strict scrutiny” (the Sherbert Test) to the claim of religious infringement.
The Ugly Truth
It is the Leftists that are bigots. To them, it doesn’t matter if the rights of other people that get trampled on in the process. It only matters when the rights of people Leftists care about get trampled on.
The Left is so very strident against discrimination – oh, but only gays, blacks, Hispanics, illegal immigrants, and Radical Islamists need apply for the victocracy.
Yet they don’t care about discriminating against Christians, and will do anything they can to align themselves against the Jews and Israel, because Leftist philosophy is anti-freedom, anti-religion, and ultimately anti-human.
The great irony is that these laws were passed because a gay couple decided to sue a bakery that wouldn’t make them a cake for their gay wedding. Instead of the couple just taking their business elsewhere, and doing everything they could to shame the business that turned them down, to put up awful reviews on Yelp, to protest in front of the store, and promote the more open-minded bakery, they chose to be vindictive.
Which forced the very governmental action they are now decrying.
Yep – when the laws don’t go their way, the Leftists cry “foul” – shameful and pitiful, actually…
This is all I can stand to write about this time.. Hope everyone is well, and is keeping their blood pressure down in the face of the insanity that we are dealing with on a daily basis.
