how is it possible
Will Rogers once said, “I don’t make jokes. I just watch the government and report the facts.” For me this applies to Ted Cruz and Andrew Cuomo this week. All you can do is look at them and say REALLY?
Let’s start with Cruz.
On what planet and in what universe did he think leaving his state while in a crisis was a good idea? Was there no one around him that said, “Senator, you can’t do that.” Then to say we “had no heat and the girls were cold” so they “planned a trip to Cancun.” How could you be so smart and so brain dead?
Just a dumb move, just a dumber explanation and though now you have apologized, as a Republican, you are done. 2024 is a memory now.
As for Cuomo, he won’t apologize for anything and he keeps digging deeper. The old saying, Governor, is when you are in a hole, stop digging.
His own party is beginning to pile on him now. People are beginning to understand the NY nursing home deaths, that are the most in the nation, didn’t have to be so high. The answer to “what difference does it make, they died” is, it didn’t have to be.
Now to show you the difference between a Republican and Democrat with media bias, consider this. Seniors died in NY, most likely needlessly. Cruz was gone 24 hours, he didn’t cause anything. Yet:
– Local media in NYC spent far greater time on Cruz than their own Governor.
– Politico’s AM newsletter devoted 20 paragraphs to Cruz and zero to Cuomo.
– Chris Cuomo on CNN blasted Cruz for a good part of his show. Mentions of the Governor – Zero.
– The networks nightly news devoted double the time to Cruz than Cuomo.
Both of these “smart” political leaders messed up. In Cuomo’s case he lied and people died. In Cruz case he turned around in 24 hours and came home. Which one should be getting greater coverage?
Until yesterday the Biden administration said no talks on going back to the Obama Iran deal that Trump cancelled until you (Iran) dismantle what you have done. A strong position.
Iran said, no talks until you lift the sanctions.
We had a standoff.
Guess who blinked?
Biden administration officials said yesterday that the U.S. would accept an invitation from the European Union to join multilateral talks with Iran, extending an olive branch that could pave the way for Washington to reenter a landmark global nuclear deal with Tehran or craft another to take its place.
Foreign Affairs Committee Lead Republican Michael McCaul said this:
The Biden Administration “is already making concessions in an apparent attempt to re-enter the flawed Iran deal.”
Here’s the NYT on this today:
Biden Administration Formally Offers to Restart Nuclear Talks With Iran.
President Biden campaigned on restoring an accord limiting Iran’s nuclear program. It remains unclear if Tehran, which is demanding that sanctions be lifted first, will accept the offer to talk.
Does it sound like we are dealing from strength here?
The report this morning is that more than 75,000 people were arrested crossing the border illegally in January, the most in any January in more than a decade. Some say they are coming in anticipation of less harsh treatment under the new administration.
Again, I ask why is it right to barricade the House of Representatives and not our border? What are we doing here? We closed the hold in Mexico policy today. People were held there by Mexico until they could have a hearing. Now we know over 90% were denied because of invalid reasons.
So now people can cross. We can hold for a short period and then (by law) must release them, and they are asked to return for a hearing. Almost 90% don’t. Why is this a good idea?
Oh this sounds like a fair review
Speaker Nancy Pelosi named the head of the commission to review the Jan 6th attack on the U.S. Capitol.
He is retired Army Lt. Gen. Russel L. Honore. Okay so far? Now consider this:
Honore has already stated that he believes the U.S. Capitol Police and the House and Senate sergeants at arms were complicit in the riot.
He said in interviews that the invasion was an inside job, that the Capitol Police force is “40% Trumpsters” and “gave way” to the protesters. “They were either that stupid or ignorant or they complicit. I think they were complicit.”
This sounds like it’s off to a fair review. How does she get away with it? It’s the press folks!
the Angry People
Things in the news that has to make you stop and wonder about the vehemence of the left and cancel culture.
Here’s the NYT today of Rush Limbaugh after yesterdays damning story:
Rush Limbaugh’s Legacy of Venom: As Trump Rose, It All Sounded Familiar:
Weaponizing conspiracy theories and bigotry long before Donald Trump’s ascent, the radio giant helped usher in the political style that came to dominate the Republican Party.
The body is still warm and forget about saying nice, or nothing at all.
Rush died of lung cancer and the sad news came yesterday that former Sen. Bob Dole, 97, said that he’s being treated for stage 4 lung cancer. “While I certainly have some hurdles ahead, I also know that I join millions of Americans who face significant health challenges of their own,” Mr. Dole said in a statement.
Though he ran for V.P (under President Ford) and for President himself (in 1996) as a Republican, let’s hope the left can be kinder to this great American and WWII hero.
angry people II
House Democrats introduced a bill called the “No Glory For Hate Act.”
It’s sole purpose is to ban “twice impeached presidents” from burial at Arlington National Cemetery and federal funds from going to buildings displaying their names or acknowledging their achievements.
It would prevent one person, former President Trump, from having his name displayed on federal projects, buildings, statues, lands, or other type of commemoration.
Is this a sickness they have or are they just vindictive people?
Oh yea, the man was acquitted twice, you wasted time and money.
Didn’t hear this? It’s the press folks!
Did you see the story that life expectancy in the United States dropped a staggering one year during the first half of 2020 as the coronavirus pandemic caused its first wave of deaths?
In the first half of last year life expectancy was 77.8 years for Americans overall, down one year from 78.8 in 2019.
For males it was 75.1 years and for females, 80.5 years.
As a group, Hispanics in the U.S. have had the most longevity and still do.
Is there Hispanic Privilege? Just asking.
