I was terribly wrong. I apologize

Andrew Cuomo for president That was the headline on my post from March 24, 2020. I wrote: If I were a Democrat–which I’m not, but which I used to be before I was expelled for being pro-life and culturally conservative–I would want Andrew Cuomo as my nominee for president of the United States. His televised briefings... Read more »

My verdict in the Trump Senate impeachment trial: A contemptible tie

Y’all guilty Y’all, meaning both sides in the Senate impeachment trail of ex-president Donald Trump. I can only hope that this is the nadir in American politics, because I can’t imagine how it can get any worse. But continuing down this road could make it so. The display of downsmanship by both sides was more... Read more »

The Trump trial: I'm waiting to see the evidence

Has anyone in America not made up his mind about whether ex-President Donald Trump is guilty of inciting the mob’s raid on the Capitol last month? I’m raising my hand because I’m waiting to see the evidence. Will the House prosectors have enough evidence to prove their case? Will Trump’s attorneys be able to prove... Read more »

Dems: The Fifth Amendment against self-incrimination doesn't apply to Trump

If he refuses to testify at his Senate impeachment trial, it will be held against him The Fifth Amendment protects the accused from having to take the stand under oath and testify against himself. It’s one of the pillars of the American right of due process. But not for ex-President Donald Trump in his Senate... Read more »

Uh-oh. Mr. ex-prez Trump, you better call Saul

News that ex-president Donald Trump’s lawyers had quit en masse a week before his Senate trial begins brings to mind the advice of Saul Goodman, the corrupt lawyer portrayed in “Breaking Bad” who’ll do anything for his clients: “Better call Saul.” My thought being that it would take someone like Saul to set Trump straight...

The Trump troops are coming! The Trump troops are coming!

Turns out that the biggest believers in the QAnon conspiracy theories that Donald Trump or his minions are about to invade the Capitol are the lefties running it. Those are the same people who ridiculed the alt-righties and others who believed that upon Trump’s signal (possibly over the emergency broadcast system) hordes of guerrillas would spin...

The case against a Senate trial after Trump leaves office

Simply stated: It’s unconstitutional. Section 1, Article 9 of the Constitution says: “No Bill of Attainder or ex post facto Law shall be passed.” A bill of attainder is a legislative action that targets a single individual by convicting and imposing punishment without trial. The Founders included the ban in the Constitution under the legislative... Read more »

The case against Trump

President Donald Trump wears the jacket for the mob that assaulted Congress. Sure, he said he wanted his apostles to walk “peacefully” to Congress to raise their voices in opposition to the ratification of Joe Biden’s election. He also said that he would march with them but then retreated to the safety of the White... Read more »

American lives matter

In  a flash, race baiters, professional agitators and even President-elect Joe Bide and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris turned the monstrous attack on Congress  into a self-serving and loathsome political screed based on a whacky assumption that here was just another example of racism. Black Lives Matter Co-Founder Patrisse Cullors started it off yesterday on CNN... Read more »

Understanding the anger that fueled the Washington protests

Why did thousands and thousands of people go  to Washington yesterday to protest? If you’ve wondered why so many fellow Americans did,  then you should read this. Even if you didn’t wonder, this is a must read. I know a couple of people who went. I don’t presume to speak for them, but I can tell you what... Read more »
