A safe world for all of us


Actress Reese Witherspoon tweeted: “No one should be able to purchase a semi-automatic weapon, cross state lines and kill 2 people, wound another and go free. In what world is this safe ... for any of us?” Another way of saying this would be: No one should be able to defend himself from three men who are chasing him, pointing a gun at him, kicking him, and hitting him with a skateboard. 

“In what world is this safe…for any of us?” she rhetorically asks. The answer is: in a world where you are not chasing a teenage boy with a rifle, pointing a handgun at him, kicking him, and hitting him with a skateboard in a three-against-one melee. 

A more pertinent question would be: In what world is anyone safe who is on a movie set with Alec Baldwin, who clearly pointed a gun toward two people and squeezed the trigger? He may have thought it wasn’t loaded, but he should have known that you never point even an unloaded gun at another human being. And if you are ignorant enough to do so, you never ever squeeze the trigger. 

In the Kenosha case, three violent thugs were shot because they were attempting to harm a teenage boy. In the movie set case, one young wife and mother is dead and the director is wounded because they just happened to be standing in the wrong place at the wrong time in proximity to the wrong person. So Ms. Witherspoon, I ask you: Which situation would in point of fact be more dangerous for any of us?

Biden out, Harris in?


The paragraphs below are part of an analysis on CNN today. The Left must be getting ready to move Biden out and bring Harris in.

Biden's judgment as commander-in-chief is being called into question since he is on record, in damning video footage, saying that the Taliban's victory was "not inevitable." He said there would be no Saigon-style pictures of helicopters lifting off the roof of the US embassy in Kabul. That exact scenario unfolded this weekend after the US rushed to get its people out, and the Stars and Stripes was run down the flagpole as the fundamentalist militia routed by the United States in 2001, surged back into the Afghan capital.
 
Biden was at Camp David all weekend and did not speak to the American people on camera. He did release a paper statement justifying his decision to leave Afghanistan, in which he spoke, misleadingly, about an "orderly" evacuation. And photos of Biden in a secure conference room at the presidential retreat, in a polo shirt, speaking with officials on screen, hardly promoted the intended image of an engaged commander-in-chief.

Putin's back pocket

Biden shuts down the Keystone Pipeline but bends over backwards to facilitate Nord Stream II. After all the claims about Trump being in Putin's back pocket, who is really in Putin's back pocket?

Ignorance on display

The people criticizing Rush for being homophobic and racist are putting their ignorance on display. They clearly have not been regular listeners. I have listened to Rush for over 30 years and have never heard him even suggest that he harbors animosity toward anyone due to race or sexual orientation. Sure, he has made fun of numerous politicians, but that has always been because of their politics and has never had anything to do with their race or sexual proclivities. I challenge these critics to produce one bit of evidence that Rush was anything like they way they are portraying him. What a pack of liars.

Rush R.I.P.

"Let me tell you who we conservatives are: We love people. When we look out over the United States of America, when we are anywhere, when we see a group of people, such as this or anywhere, we see Americans. We see human beings. We don't see groups. We don't see victims. We don't see people we want to exploit. What we see is potential. We do not look out across the country and see the average American, the person that makes this country work. We do not see that person with contempt. We don't think that person doesn't have what it takes. We believe that person can be the best he or she wants to be if certain things are just removed from their path like onerous taxes, regulations and too much government." 

Rush Limbaugh, January 12, 1951 to February 17, 2021

Lies, deception, and gaslighting

 

Joe Biden's closing argument seems to be that Trump called military personnel "suckers and loser," a thoroughly debunked fabrication of The Atlantic based on four anonymous sources, whereas 19 on-the-record witnesses say he never said it. It would also be totally out of character for Trump to say such a thing, since he has always been a big admirer of the military. The fact that Biden has continually repeated this lie at every opportunity for the past two month demonstrates the bankruptcy of his candidacy. He's against fracking except when he's in Pennsylvania...then he's for it. He knows nothing about Hunter's business arrangements with the Chinese, yet emails and witnesses say he did. Trump failed to protect us from the virus, yet he never says what he would have done differently and everything he plans to do is already being done. His whole campaign is founded on lies, deception, and gaslighting.

19 Obama Lies in Florida Speech

  

1.       “He doesn’t have a plan” for coronavirus. Obama cited the presidential debate on Thursday. However, the president did, in fact, specifically mention Operation Warp Speed, his plan to develop and distribute a coronavirus vaccine quickly. 

2.     Trump couldn’t answer Leslie Stahl of 60 Minutes when she asked, “What’s your priority in your second term?” In fact, Trump answered her: “The priority now is to get back to normal, get back to where we were, to have the economy rage and be great with jobs and everybody be happy. And that’s where we’re going and that’s where we’re heading.”

3.     “He doesn’t even acknowledge that there’s a problem” (i.e. coronavirus).  This is obviously not true, and provably so. Trump even talked about coronavirus in his State of the Union address, which Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) ripped in two.

4.     Trump said “if you put some bleach in you, that might clean things up.” Trump never said that. He mentioned new, experimental technologies in UV light, and also specifically said he was not talking about putting bleach inside anyone.

5.     “America created 1.5 million more jobs in the last year of the Obama-Biden administration than in the first three years of the Trump-Pence administration.” Obama seems to be saying that more jobs were created in 2016 than in 2017, 2018, and 2019 combined, which is demonstrably untrue. New revisions earlier this year indicated that slightly more jobs were created in 2016 than in any particular subsequent year. However, seasonally adjusted data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics show that more people were employed in each of the first three years of Trump’s presidency than in Obama’s last. In addition, Trump faced a different task. It is arguably easier to add jobs in the early stages of a recovery than it is to add jobs during a recovery already eight years old. The Obama-Biden recovery was the slowest since the Second World War.

6.     Black unemployment went down, but “not because Donald Trump did anything.” It is possible to credit several Trump policies with lowering black unemployment, especially immigration enforcement. A 2007 paper by the National Bureau of Economic Research noted: “immigration has more far-reaching consequences than merely depressing wages and lowering employment rates of low-skilled African-American males: its effects also appear to push some would-be workers into crime and, later, into prison.” Trump’s focus on domestic manufacturing capacity also arguably played a role.

7.     “The only people truly better off than they were four years ago are the billionaires who got Trump tax cuts.” A Gallup poll recently found that 56% of registered voters said they were better off than they were four years ago, which is a record high. (That’s a lot of billionaires.) In fact, a majority of Americans received a tax cut from Trump’s 2017 tax law.

8.     “He barely pays income taxes.” In fact, Trump pays tens of millions of dollars in taxes, despite losses in some years.

9.     Trump has “secret Chinese bank accounts.” The Trump hotel chain used a legal bank account to pay taxes in China when it made licensing deals. It is not a personal account and the account has reportedly been inactive for five years.

10.  “His first year in the White House he only paid $750 in federal income tax.” Trump paid over seven million dollars in taxes in 2017, but used a tax credit from an earlier year to pay it. Also, he donated his entire salary to the government.

11.   Trump has no plan “when it comes to preexisting conditions.” The president has constantly promised to provide health insurance for people with pre-existing conditions; he issued an executive order laying out his plan in September.

12.  Trump “drove up costs” under Obamacare. Actually, Obamacare premiums have been falling under Trump.

13.  Trump said: “We hope the Supreme Court takes your health insurance away.” Trump never said that. He said he hoped the Supreme Court would end Obamacare (“I hope that they end it”), noting his desire to replace it with a better plan.

14.  Trump is “MIA” when “Russia puts bounties on the heads of our brave soldiers in Afghanistan.” The Pentagon said that there was never “corroborating evidence” of a supposed Russian program to pay bounties for killing U.S. soldiers.

15.  “Joe Biden would never call the men and women of our military suckers and losers.” Neither would Trump, because it never happened. Biden did call U.S. troops “stupid bastards,” however. (He claimed that he had been joking.)

16.   Trump asked if we could “nuke hurricanes.” Even Snopes.com regards this claim as “unproven.” Obama also claimed that Trump had suggested selling Puerto Rico, which even the source for that claim says was never seriously considered.

17.  Trump “cannot call out or even criticize white supremacists.” This divisive, false claim is also easily disproven.

18.  Trump “threatens people with jail for just criticizing him.” This does not appear to have ever happened. Trump did threaten a reporter with prison time — after he defied instructions not to photograph a classified letter from Jim Kong-un. It was the Obama administration, that tried to prosecute journalist James Risen of the New York Times, and which jailed an obscure filmmaker after it blamed an obscure anti-Islamic YouTube video for the Benghazi terror attack in September 2012.

19.  The EPA is “giving polluters free reign to dump unlimited poison into our air and water.” Demonstrably untrue. Obama delivered several other attacks on members of Trump’s Cabinet in the same vein (“declared war on workers” etc.).
