Senior leadership positions need to be staffed with career investigatory or police leadership experience. The headquarters of large metro police departments should be prime recruiting grounds. Senior leadership positions should not be staffed with prosecutors, elected District Attorneys, or other political appointees. As we have seen, installing political operators at the FBI, leads to political behavior by the agents, which inevitably will morph into corruption.
Which party advocated racial segregation? That would again be the Democrats. In fact, segregationist southern Democrats even had their own club which they called the Dixiecrats – harkening back to the antebellum glory days of the south. The Dixiecrats were racist – and proud of it. George Wallace famously said, “Segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever.” He was the Governor of Alabama – also a Democrat.
Certainly, following lawful orders is important, but notice that there is nothing mentioned about obedience to leadership. That’s because following orders is between the officers and their leaders. Upholding their oath is between them and us, the American people. We expect them to make judgements about right and wrong, and the oath is their assurance that they will do so conscientiously.
Comey didn’t just fail to stop the hoax; he was an active participant. In his first meeting with President Trump, “The Cardinal” assured the President that he doesn’t do “weaselly” things. He then did the most weaselly thing possible, he bypassed the White House Counsel’s office and sent two agents to set a perjury trap for the newly appointed National Security Advisor – General Michael Flynn.
Newsom will force the Supreme Court to weigh written rights against imaginary rights. The right to bear arms is an actual written right. It’s right there in the 2nd Amendment. I double-checked, and it’s really there, clear as day: the right of people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. It can’t get any simpler than that.
The FBI promoted integrity throughout government by ferreting out corruption. Paid spies like Richard Miller, Robert Hansen, and Aldrich Ames were caught. Bought off politicians like those caught up in ABSCAM were nabbed as well. The FBI ensured that public corruption came with real risks.
Once again, we are being undone by our own hubris. We thought we could tinker with a system of such unimaginable complexity that we don’t understand it — with no negative consequences. We arrogantly thought we could command the world to run as we desired. Now we’re getting a firsthand lesson about the inevitable downfall of hubris. Our hubris is being met by Nemesis — the Greek goddess of consequences.
Americans have been looking for the right politicians to lead us. But we’ve been looking in the wrong place. The right people to run America were never professional politicians. The right people have always been working Americans – albeit with some political skills. Politicians are good at pontificating about things they know little about. Working Americans know how to make things work.
As Donald Trump would tell you, construction projects are easy to build. The hard part is getting the permission and funding to even begin. That’s why building the border wall has been such a problem for the past 20 years. It’s not that expensive, and it’s easy to build. But one party seems to think it’s not in its interest to secure the border, so it’s fought it every step of the way.
But the “okay” sign hasn’t always meant “white supremacy.” It used to just mean “okay” – you know, as an innocent answer to a question. That got me to thinking. If its meaning had changed over time, what other non-verbal communication signals had changed as well? I don’t want to accidently signal that I’m a cis-gendered homophobe or something. I decided to do a little research.
Is there anything Joe can do to change that investor behavior? There sure is. He’d simply need to announce that he’s opening up drilling, endorse fracking, and give the green light to pipeline projects. Investors will expect prices to drop, and they’ll bail on the futures market like rats from a sinking ship. But that would require admitting that Donald Trump was right. That’s not going to happen with this administration.
Luckily, the Democrats are hostages to their leftist sponsors and show no inclination to adjust their tactics. Bill Clinton knew how to “triangulate.” No Democrat after him has even considered this. Conservatives can attack their vulnerabilities in complete confidence that they will continue doing the same things. By the time they realize their tactics are flawed, it will be too late.
It’s just my opinion, but I recommend that the Republicans leave Joe Biden alone — other than crushing his agenda, that is. He is the lamest of lame ducks, but he does have an insurance plan. That insurance plan is named Kackling Kamala Harris. I say we just let old Joe keep mumbling, “Trump did this, Trump did that, and Trump did the other thing” — as if it somehow means something. Besides, President Gremlin is the electoral dead weight that the Dems have strapped themselves to.
Should the suspect decline mediation, physical restraint may be appropriate. However, physical restraint shall only be employed under the direct supervision of a medical professional. Upon determination that physical restraint is called for, the police shall “call time out,” and request a backup doctor be dispatched. They may proceed with restraint only after receiving the doctor’s written authorization.
The moderates are fighting with the radicals, and the radicals are behaving like the spoiled children they’ve always been. The radicals are even encouraging their followers to video the moderates in public bathrooms as part of the vote whipping process. Bernie Sanders (D, Socialist) has declared that if he can’t have everything on his Christmas wish list, he doesn’t want anything. And he may just get his wish — the latter one that is.
The reality is that Joe’s level of expertise reveals the flaw in the socialist objective. The left has always told us that past experiments in socialism have only failed because it wasn’t done right. They assert that it would work just fine if we put smart people in charge and let them run everything. And then they gave us Joe Biden, as the supposed smart person that would make it all possible.
Issues of LGBT rights became a thing following the Stonewall riot in 1969. Over the course of fifty years, the acceptance of those with different lifestyles has grown. Justice Anthony Kennedy legitimized the movement by finding a right to dignity in the Constitution. It was viewed as an expedient way to grant constitutional legitimacy to the movement. But look where it has led. We now have naked men bathing with six-year-old girls in health clubs. Boys in dresses are raping girls in the restrooms of their schools — a place where every child should feel safe.
I don’t need the DoJ to protect my feelings, because I’m not a snowflake. I need it to protect my person and my property from real threats. If Merrick Garland hasn’t noticed, there were “mostly peaceful” protesters that murdered people and burned down our cities last summer — and none of it was done at a school board meeting by angry parents.
Unfortunately, Fauci isn’t the only government functionary who thinks he has the authority to make such rulings. Numerous governors, mayors, and city councils have also curtailed our freedoms. Their lockdowns and social distancing rules undermined our property rights, our freedom of assembly, and our freedom of expression. The “my body, my choice” folks have decided that it’s not our choice except when it pertains to the killing of unborn children. But it is all for the “greater good.”
Has our response to COVID finally stopped the engine? Is what we are experiencing a sign that it is just coasting down now? Forced shutdowns and vaccine mandates are robbing the commerce engine of its most essential element: a workforce with the expertise and dedication to keep it running.
Run for positions on the local school board. Turnout for school board elections is notoriously low and elections are often decided by just a few hundred votes. The teacher’s unions have gotten used to the fact that they can control these elections by simply getting a good turnout of educators at the polls. Imagine their surprise if an enterprising parent leverages their neighborhood, church, and social network connections to get out the vote in favor of an alternative candidate.
Given that the gangs are now engaged in a legitimate and recognized military action, are their weapons legal now? I mean there were guns in the hands of “combatants” during that shootout, but nobody was arrested for illegal firearms possession. I guess it’s okay for them to have guns to facilitate the conduct of hostilities against each other. Apparently in Chicago, only people who do not belong to gangs will be restricted from bearing arms.
Given that the average US home price is only $270,000, it means that the average family is paying more for the government’s debt than they are for their own home. The average family of 4 is essentially making payments on a small house for themselves, and a big house that our congress decided to buy. The average family’s taxes could go down nearly $2,300 dollars per month if they weren’t supporting this national debt.
As if splintering his own party weren’t enough, Joe also managed to offend the Democrats’ most loyal voting bloc: the black community. He not only imposed vaccine mandates, but said he’d lost patience with those resisting it. He apparently didn’t notice that members of the black community are the biggest resisters to the vaccine. It harkens back to their distrust of government-ordered medical treatment from the Tuskegee experiments. Now we have the image of a white guy ordering blacks to take an experimental treatment.
The “malaise” speech came to define the Carter presidency. He will forever be known as the president who had no faith in the American people. Biden’s September 9 announcement will define his presidency as well. He will forever be known as the president who had open contempt for his countrymen.
