Is it fun to participate in politics? Some like it. I enjoy being a blog pundit, but given how few people study the problems of governing and actually participate in party politics, I doubt many enjoy the subject at all. Still, for the sake of our family friends, and neighbors, we must keep our political system under control. Otherwise, tyrannical people, vicious busybodies, will take over our government.
We have not been doing our part. We are losing our government now. In How Democrats try to make elections obsolete, Robert Knight describes the latest effort by Democrats to undermine our elections. What is striking about this effort is how ignorant the electorate — that’s we the people — have to be for politicians to attempt such “reforms”.
H.R. 1: For the People Act (congress.gov) describes the bill and tells us the Democrat-run House has passed it. The bill is lengthy and complicated. Since the Constitution leaves the running of elections to state and local governments, we should wonder why Democrats want this law. The Constitution authorizes the Federal Government protect our rights, but this bill “fixes” things that are not broken.
Where will such reforms lead? The Facts About H.R. 1—the For the People Act of 2019 (heritage.org) also provides an analysis of the bill. They also say we risk the integrity of our elections.
What is the consequence of tyranny? The elites — the busybodies in charge — seek their own glorification. Consider Punishing Christians by Everett Piper. Why would would Democrats be intolerant of Christians? It seems Democrats have an odd way of defining tolerance. It is not enough to live and let live. Democrats define “tolerance” as affirmation. Even when they sin, the people must approve of their sins.
Anything — any person or any belief — that stands between Democrats and power is to them evil. Hence we see what seems to be flagrant hypocrisy. What’s the latest?
Here we see Congressman Jerry Nadler trying to keep Ken Starr’s report on President Bill Clinton from being made public.
Here, ‘Definition of Hypocrisy’: GOP Rep Calls Out Nadler for 1998 Effort to Suppress Starr Report, is a Fox News Piece that puts what Nadler said about the Starr Report in today’s context. Here in a CNN piece, Nadler defends himself after Trump’s hypocrisy claim.
Does Nadler change his beliefs to suit the political situation? Well, you decide, but keep in mind that such hypocrisy leads to chaos. When the people we live with don’t believe in anything, have no respect for the truth, every day becomes chaotic.
Did you see Candice Owen’s testimony before Congress?
This is worth sharing, because it is a direct example of the sort of out of context, half truths I’m trying to highlight. We saw it in real time with the Catholic students. The Wa Po “Trump lies list” is another.
This is purposeful deception, in action. This is not simple political disagreement….deception to the point of actual danger to our Constitutional republic.
I cannot understand a person like Mr Lieu. He is either inexcusably ignorant here (offering the benefit of the doubt…perhaps he was too lazy to check into the clip in its entirety and was handed the recording by a staff member or something), mentally ill, or evil.
Candice Owens is brilliant.
Been busy with other stuff. Heard about Owens. Quite a lady!
Did a post about the sordid attack on those Catholic school boys.
Gave up trying to refute all the lies about Trump, but I suppose it might be fun to do a post about one of the more prestigious list of Trump’s lies. Always convenient when a liar puts all his lies in plain sight and dare you to call him on his preposterous nonsense.
Yeah. This is just sad. I looked up Lieu just to find out about him…and if I hadn’t seen this action…in action, I’d have said this is a really stellar sounding person. Yet here he is, purposely misleading in order to actually make the population believe Republicans are Hitler loving, goose stepping Nazis. It’s unbelievable.
Anyway, going to plow some snow and try to stay off the internet for a few days.
