There Is a Difference

Those who have read my past post will be surprised when I say that I hope the House impeaches President Trump.  Understand though, if they don’t, he will be assumed, “not guilty.”  On the other hand, if he is tried in the Senate, he will be proved innocent.  And, to be sure there is a difference.

Besides, it will be nice to see many of his accusers squirm when put under oath, and on the witness stand.  It will also be interesting to see how the mainstream media will paint it.  Without doubt, many of the so-called journalists will be shown for what they are.

Schiff Should Be Careful What He Wishes For

1. Invariably, the house will vote for impeachment.

2. Schiff and the so-called whistle-blower will be called as witnesses

3.  At this point, Schiff will be faced with a choice.  He can tell the truth, exposing all his lies or he can tell more lies, which will expose him to perjury charges.  If he is convicted of perjury, he just might go to jail.

4. Ether way, the dummycrats will expose themselves for what they are and it is just possible that President Trump will be elected by every state but California and New York.

5. After this, even the people in those two states will see their foolishness and start voting Republican.

6.  Then, of course, only the dummycrats and the mainstream media will continue to preach the religion socialism.

By the way, does anyone want some shore-front property.  If President Trump gets his second term, I suspect that those climate changers will want to move inland a little and avoid the floods.  They can forget all about the Paris Accord or anything like it.

Oh, one more thing.  If any of those liberals pulled anything crooked during the 2016 election, they might want to buy a ticket to some other country, one without extradition.  Without a dummycrat in the Oval Office, they will have no one to protect them from prosecution.  They might want to consider Russia.  I understand they are well on their way to a paradise on earth.  On the other hand, I suspect that the weather is nicer in Cuba.  I suspect they have some nice beaches down there.  (Oops.  Forget Cuba.  With global warming, there might not be much of the island left.)

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.

Capitalism vs Socialism

A few days ago, I went into a fast-food restaurant,  (not McDonald’s)  The person taking my order was rude and my order was not complete.  I didn’t notice it right away and considering that I was not given a receipt, I figured my chances of getting the remainder of my order improbable.  There were other problems too, but I won’t go into that.

Needless-to-say, I will not be going back to that place.  For those working in or running restaurants, or any business for that matter, it might be something you might want to remember.  I didn’t complain.  I just won’t go back.

It is the nature of capitalism.  For those who do not provide good service, they lose business, possibly, to the point of going out of business.  Those who provide a good product and good service will likely get many return customers.  It’s just common sense.

On the other hand, under socialism, people have no recourse.  The business is run by the state and if you don’t like it, it’s just too bad.  Actually, who am I kidding.  The likelihood of having a decent restaurant in the first place is quite remote.  Restaurant work is hard work.  Without reward, I know of no one who would want to work in one.  Anyone working in one would likely be there by force.  Moreover, no one would have any reason to open such a business.

The fact is, the desire for reward is what makes things work.  You take the reward away, you destroy the desire to work.  More important, you destroy the desire to risk opening a business in the first place.  Indeed, you stifle the desire to invent and develop ideas and concepts.

It is why the US develops more than half the medicines.  I mentioned earlier in one of my other posts how wonderful the devices are that generate oxygen.  At one time, diabetes was a death sentence.  After time, they developed methods of measuring blood sugar.  In the last thirty or so years, they have made great advances in this.  Nowadays, all I have to do is poke myself and put the blood on a strip.  Five seconds later, I know my sugar level.

If it weren’t for the rewards that researchers received, I would likely have to use the Ph strips that were used 30 or 40 years ago.  I don’t know.  I might not have that.  This very moment, they have many advances they are researching and testing.  Likely, within, fifty years, treatment might be as simple as implanting a pump that will sense the amount of sugar in the bloodstream and automatically supply the correct amount of insulin.

Take the rewards away from the people and the companies doing the research, and you can forget it.  We will do well to maintain what we have.

To put it blunt, socialism destroys motive.  Motive is what has brought us out of the stone age.  If you doubt me, consider what wonderful advances have been made in socialistic societies.

Some might like to suggest the Soviet Union or China.  Forget it.  All of their advances are the result of copying our advances.  They are really good at copying things.  Original ideas are something all socialists countries lack.

The really horrible thing about socialism, though, is what it does to societies.  Some, the leaders, have good food, excellent health benefits, and wonderful housing.  The rest, not so much.  It is the modern surf system, but worse.  At least in the old surf system, there was no effort to control thoughts.

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.

Sixth Amendment?

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.

Deceit and Lies About Deceit

Some time ago, Rep. Shiff lied by saying he had positive proof of collusion between President Trump and the Russians.  Now we know better.  If he had the proof, as much as he hates Pres. Trump, he would have produced it.  Instead, he says nothing more about it and hopes we will forget about it.

Then, a short while ago, he attempts to make us believe a supposed conversation President Trump had with the president of Ukraine.  It might be laughable but for two things.  First, there are millions of people that believed his deceit and continue to believe him to this day.  After all, he never made an apology and there are those that continue to quote the lier rather the real wors of the president.  Intentionally, he and his conspirators permit the deceit to live on.

Second, The Speaker of the House endorsed the lie.  Staightfaced, she said it was the truth.  (It wasn’t even a believable lie.)

Finally, Rep. Shiff lied about having talked to the so-called wistleblower.  This prompted four Panochios from even the liberal media.

Were there any corrections issued by Shiff or Pelosi?  Were there any apologies from either of them or any of those in the media who were in cahoots with them.

Then what did Shiff, the lier say when he was confronted?  He tells another lie, of course.  What else would you expect?

It is why I call them dummycrats.  It would seem they don’t know how to tell the truth, not even when they are confronted.
