The marathon of speeches during the impeachment debacle yesterday saw scores of Democrats decrying the need to be there.
They all started out with “I wish we we didn’t have to do this” or “this is something we wish we wouldn’t have to do” or “its a sad day.” The Democrats openly lamented the grave responsibility they had to enforce the constitution and checks and balances or some other crap they could insert into a political ad later in 2020.
The broad array of projection, obfuscation and outright lies might well have been designed to bore away watchers even as many of them secretly may suspect they have completely and utterly shit the bed. The house speaker even suggested withholding the resulting partisan vote from the Senate unless they get the rules set in a way that will work for them.
The house speaker even had to shush the Democrats in the house when they began to cheer the resulting vote (with zero Republicans) as she knows the only way to convey the ‘solemnity’ of the occasion is to get the morons in check and STFU. Good luck with that.
This is one of many videos circulating after Congressman Elissa Slotkin announced that she would support impeachment.
It hardly shows the overall sense of what is going on in the 8th congressional district, but it does reveal that the Democrats do not care that they are committing political suicide. That is an interesting take-away from all of this.
The hatred for Donald Trump from the left is all consuming and irrational. It allows them to ignore the illegalities of their own players, and pretend that the legitimate actions of our commander in chief somehow have earned removal from office.
Trump Derangement Syndrome is real. It will surely guarantee that he is reelected as well as carry Trump supporting republicans into office once again.
There will be more of this. And there isn’t a legislator in our nation (like Slotkin) who can say after the fact that they were not at least warned.
Not because he and I disagreed greatly in principle, or that he was far left (he is most certainly not), but mostly because I didn’t trust his instincts with people. This may have led to some of his recent problems, and perhaps how easily he can get roped into bad decision making or votes by those with other agendas.
But Larry is not a BAD guy, or evil, or anything that many of those who rise to higher office become. He just trusts too many of those who make a living off of dealing with, or taking advantage of an overly benevolent government.
The rent seekers find players they can successfully manipulate, and there are plenty enough within both political ranks in Michigan alone to fill Cobo hall. But on the fringes of those, are the strategists who work to find the chinks in the armor of political rivals. Willing to ruin the life of a person for political gain is easy for far too many on either side.
I would guarantee that Larry was in some-way victimized by those who have been trying to flip his Northern District and reverse polarity in the State house. He might have also been confused on how to solicit contributions (100% legal) for the over-moneyed process that is politics in Michigan.
But larry Inman is no criminal. And apparently, the first round of court battles he has been engaged in says as much.
Rumor has it the GOP establishment is angling to put state rep candidate Dave Morgan on stage with Donald Trump during the President’s upcoming rally next week in Battle Creek.
Morgan is running to be the state representative in Michigan’s 62nd state house district. He is the Pennfield Charter Township Supervisor and has a history as a military veteran and a police officer. He is running a campaign to secure “the safety and security of our residents, improving our road conditions and transportation infrastructure, and to instill values of restraint and fiscal responsibility and continue to be a strong advocate for early, K-12, and adult public education.”
While there is no reason to doubt that Morgan has a genuine interest in serving the public, his politics are very progressive. He has given $30,479 to Democratic Party candidates over the past 9 years, as opposed to only $12,142 to Republican Party candidates.
Roughly one week out from their home port, Rear Admiral Matome Ugaki orders the coded fateful message sent to Kido Butai, “Climb Mount Niitaka.”
Save, coming into contact with the Soviet transport ship Uritsky three days later, they continued traveling undetected for several more days until reaching their pre-planned destination and “…a date which will live in infamy.”
Sadly, what passes for the media has forgotten the significance of this particular date.
So, what do you get when you add a ton of special interest groups who feel that they are even more entitled to your money than you are (and their hopes that you’re not paying any attention to them whatsoever)?
You get the makings for a very interesting (series?) of elections in 2020…that’s what!
Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor—and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me “to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.”
Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be—That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks—for his kind care and protection of the People of this Country previous to their becoming a Nation—for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his Providence which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war—for the great degree of tranquillity, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed—for the peaceable and rational manner, in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted—for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed; and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.
and also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions—to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually—to render our national government a blessing to all the people, by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed—to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shewn kindness unto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord—To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the encrease of science among them and us—and generally to grant unto all Mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.
Given under my hand at the City of New-York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789.
