Honesty and Intelligence

Considering all of the number of dummycrats in The House, you would think they could find one honest one to lead the impeachment investigation.  Well, then again, maybe that is expecting too much.  It does seem that knowing how to lie is a requirement for them.

At least, they should find someone with a a little intelligence.  I mean, Schiff really made an idiot out of himself when he tried to lie about what President Trump said in the phone call.  I would say he just outright lied, but that is not true.  It wasn’t even a successful lie.  It was proven to be a lie almost before he finished it.

It just goes to show.  You cannot trust the dummycrats to do anything.  They aren’t even good at being dishonest.

By the way, this another proof positive that can’t count on someone with a college degree to be smart or honest.  It is also proof positive that you can’t believe anything a dummycrat says.

Respect

Short of murder or assault, one of the worst things one man can do to another is to put words in his mouth.  In a way, it is worse than physical assault.  While a man may recover from wounds, he might not ever recover from an assault on his reputation.

When Adam Schiff made up the words to the phone conversation, he was not just lying.  He was putting words in the mouth of President Trump.  At this point, if I were President Trump, I would not give the man the time of day until he issued a written apology, maybe not then.  I would want to make sure he meant it.

In the meantime, the man does not deserve to hold any kind of hearings.  How can anyone trust anything the man, or his cohorts say or write.

Moreover, the foreign service is put totally in the hands of the president.  The framers of The Constitution wisely decided that such things should not be done by “committee.”  Committee are too slow and indecisive.  Moreover, keeping a secret is much more difficult when hundred or so know it.  I don’t know how many are on the Intelligence Committee, but there are at least three or four aides for each representative. We are likely talking about more than a hundred people.

Therefore, any requirement by the congress to turn over any foreign correspondence is not only a bad idea; it is not constitutional.  Moreover, any spying by the CIA on the president is illegal.  Therefore, the only one doing anything illegal here is the so-called whistle-blower.

Finally, if the president cannot have a private conversation with other heads-of-state, he has been horribly hampered.  It is like a boxer who has but one arm.  Henceforth, those who talk to our president, even after President Trump leaves office, will have suspicions that the whole world might very well hear what was said.  Most assuredly, it will change what is said.

President Trump’s #1 Accomplishment

President Trump has accomplished so much that it is difficult to determine just which is his greatest accomplishment.  While he has not yet completely replaced Obama Care, it is all but gone.  In a year or so,  it will no longer exist; other than in our memories, or more accurately, our nightmares.

Certainly, he has done wonders for our economy.  He has brought back a bunch of jobs, particularly in manufacturing.  Some might not like it, but he has challenged the countries of Russia, China and Iran.  He pulled us out of The Paris Climate Conference, which would have been disastrous for our economy.

I am sure I have left out one or two things, but I have come to the conclusion that we have overlooked the one thing that was most important.  I say ‘we’ because, until this evening, I never considered it.

To the best of my knowledge, no one else has mentioned it, leastwise not directly.  In indirect ways, many have talked around it.  Some have even denied it, though they had no idea of it.

Actually, in a way, President Trump has come close to speaking on it, though I am sure it was not his intention.  His accomplishment will change things forever, regardless of anything else he has done.  It will change this nation for both liberals and conservatives, for Republicans and dummycrats.  The dummycrats would like to deny it, but, when and if confronted, they will have to admit it.

President Trump has exposed the media bias.  No more will people ever trust the news media.  Some will not trust the big newspapers and networks.  Many will not trust the conservative outlets.  To be sure, no one will ever have the total trust of all of us, as did Walter Cronkite.

A Little Misdirection

As an writer, I occasionally use the internet for research.  Currently, I am working on a book where I wanted to do some checking on camp-stoves, specifically the type that use Sterno fuel.

Now I have a slew of e-mails suggesting the purchase of camp-stoves.  My apologies to the merchants.  It was not my intention to misdirect you, but I am not interested in camp-stoves.  My days of camping are long behind me.  Besides, from what I learned of Sterno Stoves, they are not well suited for camping.  They have a hard time boiling water.  In my book, my character decided on the old gasoline type.  The flame burns hot and the fuel is readily available.

Don’t get me wrong, the Sterno Stoves do serve a good purpose, but not for survival.  The flame is not hot enough to boil more than a quart or two of water.  Propane or (or if available) is much better for most purposes.  There is a one burner version that is not much larger than the LP bottle and it can generate a good uniform flame for quite a while.  It would very likely be a good stove for power outages, unless like me, you have a gas stove.

The one real laugh I have about it all, those monitoring my internet queries often have a false impression of me and there is not one thing I can do about it.  None of there e-mails permit return messages.
