It really is a word. I heard it a while ago and decided I liked it. So I looked it up. Once I saw the meaning, I realized it was used very accurately. Those House managers have absolutely benumbed me with all their repetition. They seem to think that if they repeat something enough times, it will make it so. All they have really done is to benumb us all. Well, at least they did accomplish one thing, though I’m not sure it can be call an accomplishment.
I’ve taken a little look at the sixth amendment. As near as I can tell, the right to face your accuser only applies for defendants in criminal court. That means that the worst killer or rapist has the right to face his accuser. This includes victims as well as any witness.
There are three reasons for this. First, it is a verification that the witness exists. Without the sixth amendment, the prosecution can just make up the witness and claim he is real.
Second, the accused is able to question the witness. Believe it or not, some witnesses do lie. When the witness is put on the witness chair under oath, it gives the accused the ability to challenge the witness’s testimony. Strange as it seems, some witnesses don’t tell the truth. Sometimes they intentionally lie, even under oath.
Third, it gives the accused a chance to uncover motives. For instance, if the witness stands to gain a few million dollars by giving false witness, it might be a good thing for the jurors to consider during deliberations.
Unfortunately, President Trump does not have this right. He is not being tried in a criminal court. He is being railroaded by a bunch of dummycrats that hate him. Instead of a jury, if impeached, he will be judged by senators. There is no doubt in my mind that he will not be found guilty.
However, the false charges brought by the false witnesses are also being displayed (very selectively) before the public. Even if there is no impeachment, the falsities remain and the president never gets a chance to challenge any of it.
Hence, he is not even being treated as well as a serial killer.
May I remind you, we don’t even know if these whistleblowers exist? Assuming he does, we don’t know his motives. Finally, there is no opportunity for the president’s lawyers to challenge the accuracy of what they say.
Is this really the way to run an impeachment? I am sure that if our forefathers considered such a thing, they likely would have written the sixth amendment a little differently.
Then again, they likely never considered the likes of the dummycrats.
We now have the result of at least three congressional committee investigations and a two-year investigation by a bunch of anti-Trump lawyers. They have all said there was no collusion. That about established it as fact. Then again, as with the adage, the dummycrats keep opening their mouths and proving themselves fools. They keep that up and their stupidity will become casual to the most obvious observer.
Then again, maybe they aren’t so foolish. It is possible they know exactly what they are doing and they believe they will manage to deceive enough that they will win the votes they need for their elections. Of course, they would have a little help with their illegal aliens and a few dead folks. (In Chicago and Orange County, Calif., they proved that they are not above using such methods. It is documented.) Oh, yes. They will also have the help of the major new papers and TV news networks on their side. Does anyone doubt who The New York Times will favor?
Just got through watching The Five on Fox News. A stupid dummycrat made a dumb statement that I figured needed some kind response. (I know. I am being redundant.) She said something to the effect that it was a historic election when 40 seats in the house went to the dummycrats. (Actually, she used the real party label, but I can’t bring myself to use that label nowadays.)
On its face, it is a lie and it was stupid of her to think I would believe it… either it was a lie or she is even dumber than I thought to believe such a ridiculous statement. Nothing about it was historic and it was certainly expected. It was somewhat normal. Nothing historic about it. What was historic was that the Republicans picked up seats in the senate. What would have been historic is if the republicans had held on to the house.
By the way, the Republicans would have held onto the house if the dummycrats would have been somehow prevented from lying.
BUILD THE WALL!!!
In general, mostly, it’s supposed to be good news, bad news. In this case, the reverse is true.
The bad news: during the mid-term elections, the republicans lost a bunch of seats in the house.
The good news: we got rid of a lot of rinos. Hopefully, they will eventually be replaced by real republicans.
By the way, a side note: we will not have to deal with Senators Flake and Coker. They were about as much of a hindrance as a help anyway, even to this day. It is as if they want to do their worst just before they leave for spite. Also, we picked up a few seats in the Senate. No longer do we need to thread the needle to get judges appointed.
BUILD THE WALL! IT IS PERMANENT. ANYTHING ELSE IS TEMPORARY.
Some may wonder how it was that the Dummycrats had so much success in the last electition. It’s simple.
One, they pretend to be Republicans. It is sot of like wolves in sheep’s clothing. Also, they tell a few lies. The process comes easy to them. They are well practiced at it. By the way, after they win, they go back to owing their alegence to the dummycrats.
Two, they cheat. They have taken the saying seriously, “He who counts the votes wins the election.”
Three, the roten news media throws their two cents in, maybe a little more. After all, they are as much a part of the dummcrat party as the politions are. If the republicans were to win, they would cry as much or more than their candidates.
Finally, they claim that the election was unfair. After all, shouldn’t we count the votes of those in prison and the illegal aliens? Then there are those who had to take the time to cross state lines. …and, of course, we can’t forget to count the votes of the dearly departed. Why should their death get in the way?
I guess I should add just one more. Some people are easily deceived. Indeed, some lazy people like getting freebees at the expense of others.
Side note: I spent a few days in the hospital. I’m just letting you know why I haven’t written for a while.
