Bolton’s Testimony

Much has been said about the possibility of getting Bolton to testify.  I look at it this way.  If he testifies and says nothing bad about the president, it would add to the embarrassment of the dummycrats.  If he does say something bad about the president, it is still highly unlikely that he’ll be removed from office.  Worst case, he was doing something presidents do and should do.  He is the chief law enforcement officer of the nation.  After all, didn’t Obama have Trump investigated?  Didn’t Clinton use her position to smear candidate Trump?   Didn’t the FBI director clear her of all wrong.

Moreover, and most important, didn’t Biden admit guilt before the whole world on a video?  Did he not have the prosecutor of Ukraine fired in six hours?  Does such a thing deserve no investigation?

Bottom line, whether Bolton testifies or not, there will likely be little or no difference.  I once read some very wise words that I believe apply.  If it doesn’t matter, then it doesn’t matter.

As a side note, if they go into calling witnesses, there are two things that will be true.

  1. nothing will be passed by the Senate until the trial is over, possibly Till may or June.  (I doubt it will go longer.  After all, 1/3 of of the senators do face reelection.)
  2. those senators are going to get awfully tired of just sitting there twiddling there thumbs (or whatever they use to fight off the boredom) while they listen to the dummycrats spin their lies.

Benumbed

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’m of Two Minds

Which is best?

1. Dismiss the case against President Trump immediately.  After all, they have not truly charged him with so much as one crime.  After the case is dismissed, the Senate could call witnesses exposing the so-called whistle blower and Joe Biden.

2. Allow a full scale trial to go on with witnesses.  The dummycrats have far more to lose with witnesses.  After all, their presidential front runner just might be exposed of committing the very thing they are accusing the president of, abuse of power and quid-pro-quo.  Indeed Joe Biden could end up in jail.  Now that could be embarrassing.

Either way, I suspect President Trump would be the biggest beneficiary.  He just might end up running all fifty states.  Then again, probably not.  Sadly, California and New York are too far gone.  They would rather vote for a mass murderer than for President Trump.  It just must be something in the water they drink.

I guess my preference is for choice 1, though it is really a tough choice.

Oh.  By the way.  Regardless of the means and methods, they really should serve pizza to the senators during the trial.  I will help keep them awake.

 

King James Version

I had a short small chuckle when I saw a bumper sticker that said something to the affect… if it’s not King James, then it’s not the Bible.

To be sure, it is a serious subject.  Nonetheless, the foolishness of such a statement is easy to see.  Even so, in a way, I can kind identify with it.

Now that might sound like a bunch of mambo-jumbo, to be sure a conflict in ideas.  First, for those few who don’t realize the error, let me explain.

  1. The Bible was originally written in Hebrew and Greek. Certainly the Israelites studied what we call the Old Testament for centuries and it was completely valid.  Then, for a few centuries, the Christian Church studied the scriptures in both Greek and Hebrew.  That was, and is today valid.  In fact, for those able to read and understand the original language, it is likely an advantage.  I certainly wished I could read the original.
  2. The King James was written in a dialogue that most of us would have a difficult time understanding. Since it made its way on the scene, many of the words have changed meaning.  Many of the words are simply archaic.  It would be far better to read a translation that is more current, provided it is accurate.
  3. The original King James is not completely accurate. For instance, it translates the  commandant, as “Thou shalt not kill.”  It is almost unanimous among the experts that it should have been “Thou shalt not murder.”  Granted it is a small difference, but it has misled uncounted millions to use the commandant as a reason for not going to war.  Indeed, the scriptures speak of killing many times, but never does it justify murder.

Now that I have so badly ridiculed the translation, let me explain how the person with the bumper sticker had his heart in the right place.  Nowadays, there are many translations, some not so good.  Some suggest or outright say that God is female.  I do not want to consider stepping into eternity with that concept.

Too be sure, it is the modern concept of religion to accept beliefs a-la-carte.  They accept this belief while rejecting others.  Take for instance, Pelosi, as well as most democrats.  She said, as a Catholic, she learned not to hate.  Then, she allows, even encourages abortion.  Moreover, what she said was a lie and most of us know it.  She hates the president so much that she has permitted her time as Speaker to be an abject failure.  Mostly, her only accomplishment has been to impeach POTUS.

The scriptures were never intended as something to select from as on a holy buffet line.  It is akin to creating one’s own religion.  Of course, when a person makes up their own religion, it does have advantages.  However, all those advantages have an end.

In such situations, I am reminded of the passage, an illustration of a man who cuts down a tree.  Half of it he uses in a fire to keep warm.  The other half, he carves into an idol.  Then the man bows down to the idol and prays to it.  Have you ever heard of anything so ludicrous.

Of course, modern man does not make idols like that.  Well that’s not true.  A short trip through Asia will verify that there are still people in this world that expect help from things that cannot help them.  They are just a ridiculous as the idol the man carved from the tree.  Yet, I risk the anger of those who read this.  To them, I am committing a horrible sacrilege.  To them, I am being inconsiderate.

I ask.  Which is more horrible, to present the truth or allow people to continue to believe the lies?  Of course, if there is no God, it makes no difference.  There is no reason for me to rain on their parade.  It all rides on the one question.  Is there a God and who is he.  The question is important enough that we all should consider it.

When Pelosi’s heart beats its last, when she takes last breath and she comes face-to-face with her maker, she just might have some explaining to do.  To be sure, I will have to cough up a few explanations too.  However, she is going to have to explain the death, the outright murder of millions of babies under her watch.  Somehow, I think that will more than singe the locks on her head.

By the way, I prefer the New King James translation.  However, I am sure there are two or three other translations that are good.  Most of all, let’s not practice our religion a-la-carte.  That is even worse than not believing in God at all.  It gives Christianity a bad rap.

Nancy’s Conundrum

Nancy Pelosi has a not so easy decision to make.  She can sit on the articles impeachment, which will very likely anger her cohorts.  On the other hand, Nancy can transmit them to Senate and face the nightmare that 2/3 of the senators just might vote “not guilty.”  Either decision will make her look really bad.  However, if there are a significant number of the democrat senators vote not guilty, it will likely end her political career, and maybe a few of her committee chairmen too.

On the other hand, it could destroy any chances that Biden has to run for president.  If he and his son have to appear as witnesses, they just might have to take the 5th or end up in prison.

I certainly wouldn’t want to be in her shoes right now.  (Besides, my size 13’s wouldn’t fit.)

Unenforced Indictment

Normally, I don’t like writing spoilers on my books. However, in this case, I consider the purpose worth it. Besides, it isn’t much of a spoiler. First, I am not going to say which book and there are over thirty-five of them. Second, it is only part of the plot. Finally, it is not as if you will likely read it. My sales are not exactly going through the roof.

At any rate, in the book, a man is indicted for a serious crime but the district attorney doesn’t prosecute. Instead, he leaves the possibility of prosecution open. The man so that he knows that, at any time, in any place, a policeman might walk up to him and arrest him.

When I wrote the book, I thought the idea original. That’s not so. It’s not new. Apparently, the idea is older than me…and I’m old.

The bad part is that the accused never gets his day in court and never gets to clear his name.

Possibly, Pelosi has read the book. Or, maybe someone told her the plot. At any rate, apparently, she has decided to impeach President Trump and then not allow a trial. It’s sort of the same thing.

There are names for people who do such things. However, I don’t use words like that. Maybe we can just settle for dirty rotten scoundrel. Also, I suspect she doesn’t want 2 ½ years of work disappear in a two week trial. Then again, she might not want Schiff and the Bidons to have to take the witness stand.

Any way you look at it, she is in danger of the truth getting out; that is, more than it already has. I just might destroy the power structure she has spent her life building.

You see, I have written a series of books I call the floater series. I could have just as easily called it the controller series. It is about people who seek control and a few people (I call floaters) who keep them from it. You can put Pelosi in the group I call controllers. You can put President Trump in the group that seek to stop them.

Of course, Pelosi and her controllers seek to paint the president as the controller and themselves as those trying to save us from being controlled. Stop and think about though. Who is it trying to pass the laws and regulations that limit our freedoms and who is trying to return our freedoms to us,

I’ll give you a hint. How many regulations have been made by Obama? How many regulations have been removed by President Trump?

To be sure, the Floater Group of books I wrote are highly unbelievable.  However, what has just happened in our House of Representatives just might be just as unbelievable.  Three years ago, such a thing would have been thought even more unbelievable than any of my books.
