Doth Protest Too Much

The lady doth protest too much, me thinks.

It is a familiar line from Shakespeare’s play, Hamlet, third act, second scene.  Lest you get the wrong idea that I am some kind of Shakespeare expert, I am no fan of his.  In fact, I hated it when we had to read Julius Caesar in high school.

Nonetheless, I must admit that the man could turn a phrase or two.  I would have simply said, “She protests too much,” and leave it like that.  I must admit he maybe said it a tad better.  Also, his sayings are used throughout our English language all these years later.  They are used with such regularity that most people are unaware of it.

Now to the point.  Let me see.  The media said there is no voter fraud.  Let’s just move on.  The politicians echo the saying.  They say that President Trump ought to admit defeat for the good of the country.  (Nixon did that with Kennedy and look where that got him.)

Even well know republicans have joined the mantra.  They say that it hinders the transfer of authority.  Not just one, but it is a very large chorus and the words are repeated to the point that everyone ought to accept it as solid fact.

It seems few remember the 2000 election and Florida and the hanging chads.  I don’t recall anyone saying how important it was to make a smooth transition.  Maybe it wasn’t so important, being as the man going into The White House had an R after his name.

It does seem to be the ‘Rule.’  After all, few complained when Clinton refused to admit defeat.  “I got more votes,” or something like that.  The fact is that the dems are refusing to admit that defeat to this day.  They get to complain without cause and the republicans don’t get to follow completely legal methods.

By the way, has anyone forgotten the words of Clinton prior to the election, “Don’t concede, no matter what.”  I think POTUS has at least as much right to hang on as Biden does.  Let’s say, the president won by 10 percent, both popular and Electoral College.  Was Biden still supposed to refuse to concede?

Now, let’s get back to the protesting too much.  I look around.  I see all the protest against the legal processes by President Trump.  Do you suppose that the protest is to keep ‘we the people’ from finding fraud and cheating?

Just maybe, had Nixon chose to look into all the dead people voting in Chicago, the democrats would have discovered cheating doesn’t pay.  Then they would have ceased the efforts.  If people would have gone to prison back then, we wouldn’t be dealing with the fraud today.

Now, we are supposed to ignore the fraud today and teach the dems that they can cheat any time and in any way.  Sure.  They will be able to do it right out in the open as the Soviets did.

In such a case, it would make the vote moot and we might as well all stay home and watch the TV.  By then, the dems would also control the programming so that we would be spoon fed a bowl full of propaganda.  Then, of course, there would be no rule of law.

Even if no fraud is proved, it will at least alert those who have thoughts of fraud.  They might be less likely to try anything.  More important, if we do find fraud, just maybe those who are behind it can find themselves to be guest of the Federal prison system.  And, in spite of the fraud and cheating, the right man would remain it The White House.

The saying is frequently used and is just as true today as when it was first used…. There is none so blind as he who will not see.  It would appear that about half this country is now blind, willfully.

Remember the Three Monkeys?

I hadn’t heard about them lately, but when I was younger, they were a common subject. One monkey covered its eyes and the caption under it was, “See no evil.” The second one covered its ears and the captions was, “Hear no evil.” The third one had its hands over its mouth with a caption of, “Speak no evil.”

The original concept has little to do with what I have to say today. Yet, it still applies. Obviously, if you have your eyes covered, you will see no evil. If you have your ears covered, in theory, you will hear no evil. Finally, if you keep your mouth covered, you will speak no evil.

The above is true whether or not it is good. For instance, the witness who covers his eyes cannot see the robbery, and hence he is no help to the police in finding the thief. Strangely, many witness act as the monkey with his eyes covered. When the policeman asks if he saw or heard anything, he assumes the position of the third monkey and clams up.

On the other hand, there are those who are intentionally blind. They close their eyes and ears to the crime that occurs right in front of them because they benefit, or they believe they will benefit from the crime.

Four F.I.S.A. false applications were submitted to the court and no one, but no one seems to know how it happened. It is sort of an extension of the three monkeys, “Read no evil.” Maybe we can say they were all doing there imitation of Sergeant Schultz in the old series, Hogan’s Heroes, “I see nothing. I see nothing.” I would guess that the whole of the seventh floor of the FBI is maned by hundreds of clones of Sergeant Schultz. The alternative thought is that they were a bunch of monkeys covering their eyes. You take your pick. Either way, by their own admission, they neither saw, heard or knew anything. I guess we must conclude that they covered their eyes for all four applications.

So now we are in the midst of a post election fog. The democrats have completely destroyed the faith the majority of us had in our election process and all the democrats can say is that they see no evidence of fraud. Of course they don’t. They are assuming the position of the monkey and they are covering their eyes. Guess what. If you close your eyes, cover them and look away, of course they see nothing. (There is no one so blind as those who will not see.)

Some say, there is very little fraud. That’s stupid. Are we supposed to ignore a crime because there is so little of it. Every person who commits fraud in an election should be prosecuted. Moreover, if a pattern develops, we must assume there is someone behind it.

If we find a broad pattern of it, as is now developing, it only stands to reason that the democrats are behind it. All those who disobeyed the law should be investigated and prosecuted, especially if they were sitting in a big luxurious office with his feet propped up at the time of the crime.

It just might help them and others see better during the next election. Of course, there is no need for Biden to do anything wrong. The country is full of people who gladly do it for him, possibly to the point of going to jail.

Crooked Politicians

Occasionally, in the old days, a democrat said something well worth repeating. FDR said we have nothing to fear but fear itself. JFK said ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.

Nowadays, of course, the democrat invents all sorts of things the country can do for everyone. They have become the giveaway party, which ironically began with FDR. It about reached its apex with Johnson and his Great Society. That went over like a lead balloon. We had a higher percentage of poor after than before.

Truman had a pretty good saying, one which few quote. I don’t know the exact quote but it goes something like this. It is easy to tell the honest politicians from the the dishonest ones. The dishonest ones begin their career poor and retire very rich. (By the way, he did not retire rich.)

I know Biden likes to say he started his career as a poor man. I wonder just what his net worth is today. Seems to me that he has two very large homes in very exclusive neighborhoods. Hunter has at least one house that I wouldn’t be able to afford with four life long earnings, even if it were completely dedicated to the house. It sounds to me that they both have a ton and a half of net worth. I wonder where they got it all. I wonder how he plans to build on it.

It sounds like they has all the earmarks of crooked politicians to me.

It is bad enough that he used his office to make his fortune but Biden has also turned the helm of the country over to the squad. That’s not just bad. It is disastrous. Those communists have no intentions of letting us have it back- ever.

SOUNDS OF SILENCE!

Many decades ago, Simon and Garfunkel wrote a thoughtful piece of music that had a nice tune to it.  It really caught on for quite a while.  I remember I was in Nam at the time just after it came out.  It seemed just about everywhere I went, someone was playing the song or soon would be.

I was reminded of it lately.  I also had a thought about the doomsday preppers.  These people prepare sanctuaries for the doomsday they expect.  So, when the doomsday arrives, they will hide in their shelters in hopes that, after a few months or years they can return to a safe world.

I guess that Biden is a doomsday prepper, of a type.  His doomsday occurred when the computer of his son turned up with all the emails and all the photos.  Suddenly, he has rushed to his shelter and there he will hide, as much as he can, until it is safe to return.  It is even conceivable that he will find a convenient excuse to avoid the debate.  I don’t know.

But there is sound of silence.  He has said little or nothing about the computer or the hard drive.  He has decided to put a lid on it and he ain’t talking to nobody about it, regardless.

It is also the sound of silence from the media.  They will say nothing about the computer either, other than to repeat the old “Russia, Russia, Russia thing.”  I don’t think it will work this time.  The sound of silence is so loud it cannot be ignored.

Finally, there is the sound of silence from anyone who decides to twit about it.  The very instant that someone tries to tweet on the subject, they are silenced.  Hence, it is a sound of silence.

Personally, I don’t have any accounts with any of the social media.  It serves me no purpose.  Besides, I don’t much like people selecting what I can say.  It rather has something to do with the 1st Amendment.  This is as close as I get to any such of an account.  I suspect I give up many possible followers, but I write what I want.  Maybe it is time for other conservatives to do the same.  Maybe it is time for us to send a message to the social media.  If they lose a few accounts, they just might start to understand.

Then again, we all know better.  They all hate the president too much.

Oh yes, there is one more sound of silence.  Hardly anyone telling the world about all the good that our president has done.  I guess that is why he has to toot his own horn.  And of course, you will not find President Trump cowering in some cellar hoping against hope that no one will ask that question to which there is any good answer.

All the Requirements

It would appear that Kamala Harris has all the requirements that Biden was looking for to be his running mate.  She is female, Black, and she is willing to toe the dummycrat line, even if she doesn’t believe in it.

It does bring up the question.  Has she decided to toe the line because it was what she believes or because she wants the job?  The again, maybe someone made her an offer… like the presidency after Biden’s first term.

On the other hand, why wait for him to complete the first term.  It seems to me as if I remember an amendment that allows a president to be removed from office if he is unfit.  Seems to me that they might have tried to use it on the current POTUS.

Considering Biden’s mind, it ought not be difficult to prove him unfit.  Then she can just shuffle into the White House, just as she originally intended.

Either way, she just might be thinking ahead.  Everyone knows it is easier for a current present to be reelected.  It would certainly give her a leg up in 2024.  Her primary would very likely go much smoother.

I don’t have any inside track on the matter.  Just, so to speak, thinking aloud.  Still, if Biden were to be elected, it might be nice to see how things unfold once he takes the oath of office.  Meanwhile, during the time between when he takes office and when she takes over, it would give a new meaning to a driver-less car.

The Scenario

I rather like the term Scenario.  The first time I heard it was when I watched the TV show, The Greatest American Hero.  Maybe this is not the most accurate place to use the word but, as I said, I like it.

This is what I suspect will be the scenario.  It might not be planned this way.  I am pretty sure no one has written it down.  However, I suspect that the plan is forming in the minds of some very influential people.

Sometime, in the next month or two, a group of men, or women, will approach Bidden with a plan.  Somehow he will become disabled.  Maybe he will lose his voice or maybe he will admit to hoof and mouth disease.  At any rate, he will be convinced that it is time for him to withdraw from the presidential race.  Then, of course, conveniently, they will have someone step in from the sidelines to take over for him.

You might wonder where I get the idea.  I wonder how in the world they can let him continue.  One debate and Biden will be so confused he won’t know what state he is in, or what office he is running for.  (Wait a minute.  I guess that already happened.)

So, before the first debate, they will need to replace him.  My only question at this point is who will replace him?  Will it be Hillary?  Maybe it will be Bernie.  I’m not sure, but I think both of them are too old.  Just who do they have waiting to step in?

I suppose Obama’s wife might step in, but I don’t think she wants too.  Even so, they might try to talk her into it but for one thing.  She would never stand up to the scrutiny.  Not only would she have to answer for Obama’s lies but also for her own dumb ideas.  I am certain that they would lose the votes of almost all those working in school cafeterias.  Also, some of those students forced to eat that healthy food will be of voting age now.  Do you really think she will get their vote?

Regardless of who they decide to put in in Biden’s place, they do have some obstacles to deal with.  First, they might have some problems getting Biden to cooperate.  He might throw a fit.  He might demand a fortune or two.  Then again, he just might dig in and refuse.  If he does that, then what will they do?

However they manage to talk him out of it, they will have to talk the democrats into it.  Besides, Bernie will likely pitch a fit.  He will decide it’s his turn.  Besides, he came in second.  He ought to get the nod.

I suppose, to some degree, there will be others who believe they should be the ones to rise to throne.  Some might have a small reason or two.

The thing is.  The problem is.  They just don’t have anyone waiting in the wings that can beat President Trump and they know it.

Maybe instead of calling this The Scenario, I should have called it The Conundrum.
