Waiting….wondering…. Just how all of this is going to end

 

 

 

Here they come.

Sunday’s Reflection – Freedom isn’t Free

 

We are disheartened and discouraged. As Adrienne at  Adrienne’s Corner 

titles her post:

This is The Great Awakening – Not The Great Reset…

it’s a fight for our way of life and freedom.

And she is right.

We are tempted to give in, to give up.  We need to recall that we have our freedoms because there were tens of thousands of young men and women willing to sacrifice their young lives so that we may be free this last century alone.

At this time of anxious concern for our Nation, as concerned as we are, consider the anxiety of the 56 men and what they were willing to do for us so many years ago during our Independence.

Together “And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.” 

The ages of the signers ranged from 26 (Edward Rutledge) to 70 (Benjamin Franklin). Many of them probably expected to die.

They signed anyway.

This video captures the terrible price so many have paid so we can be free. What energy and price are we willing to offer?

These are American Cemeteries around the world and the number of those who gave the ultimate sacrifice. I suggest watching this in full screen to appreciate the enormity of it all. Staggering.

“Hymn to the Fallen” by John Williams is the background music

 

 

Adrienne  continues:

This is a battle between good and evil and you must choose your side.  Not “sort of” or “maybe”, but a firm declaration of truth.  Beyond even good and evil is the fight for humanity, as God intended it to be.

What can you do?
That’s both a real question and a rhetorical question.
It’s up to each of you to probe your psyche for your purpose in life. Each of us has an individual role to play.  Due to physical, age-related, or cognitive differences, our strengths and weaknesses are not the same, and we aren’t going to have the same purpose. Your purpose right now is to find your purpose.
Please spend some time in quiet reflection, discuss the present and the future with those you trust, and decide accordingly. Don’t be spewing your plans all over Facecrap, or your blog if you have one, or even with most of your neighbors.  Behold I send you as sheep in the midst of wolves. Be ye therefore wise as serpents and simple as doves (Matt 10:16)  You may want to take a few minutes to research that verse.

And  – don’t forget to pray!

 

 

God Bless Donald J, Trump and God Bless America.

Why would they shoot this woman with SWAT right behind her? Something isn’t right here…and nobody is speaking up. Also, numerous people walking into the building, even w police escort…why her? This doesn’t pass the sniff test

Welcome to America’s ‘Rule of Law’

Apparently we learn that it doesn’t take a whole lot of effort to storm the Capitol. Am I the only one who finds it a puzzle that with a hundred thousand and more patriots and who knows who else is in D.C. protesting, we have the slim blue line down to a handful at the Capitol? By golly weren’t we lucky that a true terrorist wasn’t in the mix with who knows what? But wait, it is claimed that various pipe bombs and IED’s were found. Let’s find out just who were the instigators that breeched the hallowed halls of Congress.

Tucker Carlson had a stand out show last night. The full thing is out there on Youtube at least for now. But I suspect Tucker and us little bloggers are soon to be written off the pages and networks. Anyone else want to bet this bit of insurrection by whomever has given them the “reason” and excuse to banish us. After all we are now called the insurrectionists.

Yet we are suppose to play nice we are told while the left burns plunders and pillages.

Mark Steyn and Tucker have at it in the clip below.. its up for now…..

Iowa Democrat Asks House to Overturn Election She Lost

 

Why have elections at all? Just have the the democrats in the House of Representatives declare the election results.

Nancy Pelosi

Will Nancy have any problem doing the deed and giving her the seat? These little known facts on what our out of control Congress can do. There were rumors she was going to do it. Well now it is official. meanwhile Trump plugs along with the courts regarding his election.

Here we go:

Democrat Rita Hart, who lost her Congressional election in Iowa’s Second District, is filing paperwork to have fellow partisans in the House of Representatives “review” and overturn her defeat.

Hart lost to Republican Mariennette Miller-Meeks in the initial vote tally, then lost the recount. Miller-Meeks’ victory was formally certified by the state, and the Hart campaign chose not to challenge the outcome through Iowa’s court system.

Instead, the defeated candidate was said to be strongly considering appealing to the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives in order to uproot the voters’ decision and achieve “the result we need.” And that’s exactly what she’s doing.

Based on the rules and the law, Hart lost. She wants to sidestep the proper process, convince Democrats in Congress to count certain votes that she feels were wrongly excluded, and have herself declared the “real” winner — overruling voters and Iowa’s system.

It’s a brazen effort to steal an election. If she and her lawyers believed they have a strong case, they could have presented it to impartial arbiters through the state’s judicial system. They deliberately chose to eschew that option, however, relying on the bogus excuse that there wasn’t enough time.

Other than that all is well in the swamp.

Porkulus extravaganza – Pet projects in $900 billion stimulus bill

We already know about the $600 checks for each adult and dependent. If you make less than $75K. This time, however, ‘mixed-status’ households where eligible citizens live with illegal immigrants, will not only receive payments – they can retroactively claim benefits after being left out of the last round.

Pork that is unimaginable. Wander over to Zero Hedge for the obscenity. Yet how about us poor working stiffs? Not much… but a special package for illegals.

Pork City:The Most Ridiculous Pet Projects In $900 Billion Stimulus Package

And now, on to the pork… which includes billions to foreign countries, US military weapons purchases which go above and beyond their budgets, $40 million for the Kennedy Center, and nearly $200 million so that federal HIV/AIDS workers overseas can buy cars and car insurance, among other things. Lots of foreign aid. Also included is $453 million to Ukraine, on top of the $400 million Trump eventually released. No word on how much of that goes to the ‘big guy.

But our gal Nancy has something special for us-

The USA Cultural Revolution marches on – McConnell OK with renaming military bases

 

One can only wonder what the new names for U.S. Military bases will be after the purge of any names remotely determined to be offensive in the cultural revolution. If our short history of name swap out is any indication, look for cultural icons such as Madonna, and no doubt a rapper or two. Recall Johnny Cash was recently moved into Congress’s Statuary Hall.  Recall how this selection worked out  

Statuary Hall

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) stated Tuesday that he is “okay” with removing the names of Confederate leaders from U.S. military bases, breaking with President Donald Trump on the issue.

“I can only speak for myself on this issue. If it’s appropriate to take another look at these names I’m OK with that,” said McConnell. “Whatever is ultimately decided I don’t have a problem with.”

……Shortly after President Trump’s remarks, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) called for the removal of several Confederate statues from Capitol Hill.

Writing to the Joint Committee on the Library, Pelosi requested Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO) and Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) to order the Architect of the Capitol to “immediately” remove 11 Confederacy statues from the halls of Congress.“

The statues in the Capitol should embody our highest ideals as Americans, expressing who we are and who we aspire to be as a nation,” she added.

Breitbart

In another politically correct move, Statuary Hall located  in the Capitol will be having a new look. No doubt in a move to highlight the cultural phenomenon that changed Arkansas. Out go a supposedly Confederate Statute fellow replaced with musician types. Johnny Cash is coming to Statuary Hall

Look, I got it, with reparations under discussion, the Civil War history needs to be cleaned up and moved out. But Johnny Cash? It is claimed that Clarke, who was once a US Senator, held segregationist views and Rose had sided with the Confederacy. They are moving out. I vote for Rocky Balboa next. Why not?

According to a report from the Washington Post.

The Statuary Hall Collection comprises 100 statues, two from each state. It was created by an act of Congress in 1864 to allow each state to commemorate “deceased persons who have been citizens thereof, and illustrious for their historic renown or for distinguished civic or military services.” Decisions about which individuals to memorialize are made by state legislatures and governors.

The installation of Confederate leaders in the seat of American political power is neither accident nor oversight. In happened in the early years of the 20th century with the emergence of the so-called Lost Cause myth, which idealized and whitewashed the Confederacy’s origins and existence.

Each state is allowed to have two statues on display and are permitted to replace them as long as they cover the costs.

House Democrats tell Supremes they are preparing for a new impeachment

 

A small matter apparently that the Dems plan new articles of impeachment. I didn’t see that on breaking news. Ho hum I guess. If I were to connect a dot or two I might say that perhaps Judge Sullivan who is presiding over the Flynn matter may have had a heads up on this one. As stated in the brief to the Supremes:

the possible exercise of improper political influence over recent decisions made in the Roger Stone and Michael Flynn prosecutions, both of which were initiated by the special counsel.

No one much apparently thinks that Sullivan will get anywhere with his acceptance of Amicus briefs due in July, but we have been fooled before haven’t we. Nancy Pelosi was so anxious to get the last impeachment off the ground let’s see how this one goes. At least Nadler is at the helm with this one. I am not sure I could stand to see much more of Bug Eye.

This from Jonathan Turley:

Jerry Nadler

On Monday, the House Democrats filed a brief that with the Supreme Court that the House was actively pursuing new articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump including “the possible exercise of improper political influence over recent decisions made in the Roger Stone and Michael Flynn prosecutions, both of which were initiated by the special counsel.

The argument is meant to justify the continued demand for redacted grand-jury material from the now closed Special Counsel investigation into the Russian collusion investigation.

Thus, the House is arguing that

“The [House Judiciary] Committee’s investigation did not cease with the conclusion of the impeachment trial. … The withheld material remains central to the Committee’s ongoing investigation into the President’s conduct. If this material reveals new evidence supporting the conclusion that President Trump committed impeachable offenses that are not covered by the articles adopted by the House, the committee will proceed accordingly — including, if necessary, by considering whether to recommend new articles of impeachment.”

The House specified its continuing impeachment inquiry:

“The Committee’s investigation continues today and has further developed in light of recent events. For example, the Committee is investigating the possible exercise of improper political influence over recent decisions made in the RogerStone and Michael Flynn prosecutions, both of which were initiated by the SpecialCounsel.

See Letter from Jerrold Nadler, Chairman, H. Comm. on the Judiciary, et al. to Michael E. Horowitz, Inspector General, U.S. Dep’t of Justice (May 8, 2020),https://perma.cc/799D-2PNY. The Committee has announced its intention to hold a hearing with the Attorney General—who has failed to appear before the Committee at any point on any topic during his tenure—on these issues as soon as possible.”

Here is the House filing to the Supreme Court…

Rashida Tlaib Goes Off the Rails at Hearing with ‘Winking’ Conspiracy

 

“Okay, why were you winking at one of my colleagues on the other side of the aisle? You winked,” Tlaib demanded.

Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib was openly hostile towards a conservative witness during the House Oversight and Reform Subcommittee on Economic and Consumer Policy hearing on vaping. (A post on the lighter side..video)

Rep. Tlaib accused the witness, Vicki Porter, of being part of a conspiracy for winking at Republican Rep. Glenn Grothman and demanded that she was lying about having quit smoking. Porter was invited to speak at the hearing because she was able to quit smoking by switching to vapes and advocates for people quitting smoking.

Rashida Tlaib Attacks Vape Hearing Witness

 

 

Porter explained that Rep. Grothman is a friend of hers and was the one who introduced her. “Oh, I understand. I didn’t know what the winking was.

I thought maybe there was like a conspiracy thing going on. I didn’t know,” Tlaib bizarrely stated. “You think there’s a conspiracy in this hearing, ma’am?” Porter replied, as shocked as everyone else hearing the freshman lawmaker’s assertion.

Not enough yet? More wonderful news. Our special scientist from Detroit with the inside scoop makes some outlandish claims.

 

Other than that, all is well in the swamp. Not so much in Detroit.

IG Horowitz congressional hearing that no one knew about or covered

 

DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz testified before the House Committee on Oversight and Reform on Wednesday morning. Comments made:

Why is the room virtually empty where are all the demon rats what’s the matter can’t they handle the truth?

Where did this hearing come from? There was absolutely zero coverage about it.

@57:43 Horowitz lets it slip that he knows about an upcoming criminal referral of a head of a federal agency.

You would have never known it. C-Span 1,2 or 3 did not cover it. No cable. All afternoon I waited for Fox to report on it but nothing. C-span 3 was covering a hearing on the mental health of the “migrant kids” mental health. After about an hour after the supposed start time of 11 am I finally scurried around the internet and found it being covered live.

The story isn’t the hearing itself but the lack of coverage by anyone. Maybe because there weren’t any Democrats involved? Maybe because we know where this is going to end.

Horowitz covers his referral of the AG over Comey’s lack of candor and it is worthy of a headline. Good stuff. If you care to work through it, I have included the full thing. While it’s still up:

“Regarding US Attorney Durham, are ya’ll in any discussions about what he’s finding or what you have found?” Congressman Hice (R-GA) asked Horowitz.

Horowitz also revealed to lawmakers that he criminally referred former FBI Director James Comey for prosecution.

The Justice Department ultimately declined prosecution and despite Comey bragging about this, the IG indeed concluded he criminally acted.

At the time there were about 12K of us watching…

For whatever reason the full hearing starts about half way into it… it’s the full thing- start from the beginning if you so chose. Will update the post if need be.

Comey referral:

 

Full hearing

 

Other than that the swamp is very happy.
