Tuesday Poetry……

The Lockless Door
It went many years,
But at last came a knock,
And I though of the door
With no lock to lock.

I blew out the light,
I tip-toed the floor,
And raised both hands
In prayer to the door.

But the knock came again.
My window was wide;
I climbed on the sill
And descended outside.

Back over the sill
I bade a ‘Come in’
To whatever the knock
At the door may have been.

So at a knock
I emptied my cage
To hide in the world
And alter with age.

Robert Frost  (1874-1963)

Trump Says Mothers and Doctors Decide to “Execute” Babies……

Below are words spoke by DJT at his Wisconsin rally.

 

“But your Democrat governor here in Wisconsin, shockingly, stated that he will veto legislation that protects Wisconsin babies born alive. The baby is born, the mother meets with the doctor, they take care of the baby, they wrap the baby beautifully, and then the doctor and the mother determine whether or not they will execute the baby.”

Donald J. Trump, President of the United States of America

 

Of course Trump’s fallacious claim is something he apparently believes is a cool thing  to do as he attempts to whip his Evangelical base into a frenzy. It is certainly clear that Trump believes people are stupid enough to believe his BS. Sadly enough there are probably some who will believe the above garbage emitted from his lying stinking maw.

Hat Tip: Progressive Eruptions

Sanders Shoots Self In The Foot…..

The question was stark: Would you support enfranchising incarcerated people like the Boston Marathon bomber or convicted rapists?

The answer Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont gave was starker: Yes.

“I think the right to vote is inherent to our democracy,” Mr. Sanders said during a town hall-style event on CNN this past week. “Yes, even for terrible people.”

That singular answer made up my mind. I can not, and I will not vote for Bernard Sanders should he win the democratic nomination. Period.

Individuals who commit heinous crimes against their fellow humans have, in my educated opinion, given up their right to have a voice in our society.

Why in the hell should evil destructive degenerates have the right to be heard or counted AFTER destroying the lives of innocent individuals? Why should  such a person have the same rights to be heard as those of decent law-abiding citizens who have never harmed anyone? Why should a monster who has zero understanding of the rights of others  have a right to be heard. Answer, they shouldn’t. 

Having said the foregoing I do believe that AFTER individuals have FULLY  paid their debt to society for their grievous actions against their right to vote should be open to review and consideration. It should however not be automatic.

Sanders has obviously allowed his extreme progressivism to addle his brain. Either that or he severed his connection to reason. BTW, NO democratic candidate who shares Sanders views on this issue deserves consideration in my educated opinion, Period.

Uncle Joe Off To A Good Early Sart……

a close up of text on a white background: Biden leads Trump by 6 points in first post-announcement poll

Off to a good start. Not that this is surprising.  So, if 16 of the now 20 announced democratic candidates realize they are really lightweights with no chance of getting the nomination and drop out it will be a very good thing. The last thing the democrats need is a dog and pony show with the party eating its own. Job one is to thoroughly discredit Trump and bury him in a landslide come November 2020.

If Trump keeps being Trump and Biden can remain gaffe free and focused on an agenda the majority of American’s can relate to and support he may just be the nominee.

Turning Up The Heat……

Libertarian Judge Andrew Napolitano, an early on supporter of Trump has changed his views.  Following two plus years observing Trump’s actions, his  blazing Twitter feed, and his volumes of lies and obstruction Judge Napolitano recently said the following.

Prosecutors prosecute people who interfere with government functions and that’s what the president did by obstruction, where is this going to end? I don’t know, but I am disappointed in the behavior of the president.

If he had ordered his aides to violate federal law to save a human life or to preserve human freedom, he would at least have a moral defense to his behavior. But ordering them to break federal law to save him from the consequences of his own behavior, that is immoral, that is criminal, that is defenseless, that is condemnable.

Watch the complete video from “Judge Napolitano’s Chambers” here.

The criticism from the longtime Fox News stalwart is the latest in his gradual evolution into one of the network’s most ferocious critics of the president. During a different monologue of the same show last week, Napolitano said what he saw in the report was enough to “prosecute” Trump.

The increasingly frequent and relentless criticism from Napolitano is a stark departure for the judge, who was known to be a Trump favorite at the start of his presidency. Throughout 2018, Trump frequently quoted the judge’s analysis verbatim on Twitter. In 2017, there were even rumors that Napolitano would be tapped for a Supreme Court seat.

It is now time for the Congress of the United States to do its job. The million dollar question is does it have the backbone. The billion dollar question is, if Congress actually  has the backbone to do there’s will the Senate have the courage to do the same?

My bet? Very likely not.
