A Weekend Check…

president trump at cpac:

The former President emerges on Sunday to speak at this conference. What he should say is:
It’s time for us to move past 2020 and what divides us as a party to the future. It’s time for us to unite and put the heat on the socialist programs the left is bringing to our nation. It’s time for us – together – to unite and save our heritage and future.
For my part, I have learned a lot. I came into 2016 having never run for office and fought back with vehemence against opponents and an unfair press.
My promise is I will keep fighting by your side and never deviate from our principles, but I will adjust the tone.
We all live and learn, and we have too much at stake and to offer the nation not to do so.
Now what will he say? If he reverts back to he was cheated and personal attacks, he will have missed the moment.
I am betting he does.

in the news:

Yesterday, acting U.S. Capitol Police Chief Yogananda Pittman at the Jan. 6th inquiry hearing said that the government was aware that armed extremists were planning mayhem at the Capitol, but the intelligence grossly underestimated the scope of the attack.
Okay, I say again, they knew and impeached President Trump for inciting it with his speech. Why isn’t the media holding Speaker Pelosi to task on this?

President Biden ordered a bombing on the Syria border to answer Iran’s terrorist activity. It caught most people by surprise. I wonder how John Kerry felt about the act.
Anyway, when President Trump in 2017 bombed them in Syria, here’s what Jen Psaki said:
”What is the legal authority for strikes? Assad is a brutal dictator. But Syria is a sovereign country.”
Now I supported Trump’s action then and Biden’s now. That makes me consistent.
Watch Psakii tell us today why it was wrong then and right now. Same as housing kids in the same building today is right, but under Trump was an outrageous act.
Where’s the press on this?

When asking about contradictions how about the left on Andrew Cuomo?
We all remember their righteousness of totally discredited charges against Brett Kavanaugh. In fact, a lawyer is in jail with his false witness.
So where are they now?
Well Cuomo’s home state senators, Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, have refused to criticize him over the renewed allegations that he sexually harassed a female aide.
Senator Gillibrand said, “I have not read her allegations.” Really?
It’s one page long and you sure read and said a lot about others. Do you only read things about people you don’t like?
Where is Hawaii Senator Hirono and her men should “just shut up and step up?”
Where is the press calling them on this?

The House Parliamentarian ruled yesterday that the $15 minimum wage could not be included in the $1.9 Trillion Dollar Covid Program. Now, I think this can revert back to the states. As an example, Florida voted 61% for a $15 minimum wage last November, at the same time they voted for Donald Trump. That wage seems right for Florida, while North Dakota might decide $12 is right for it.
The federal government should set a base, say $10.00, and let the states go from there.
Now the left is not in board with this.
Rep. Ilhan Omar said we should “fire the Parliamentarian,” since the Democrats have “a majority and should be able to do what we want.”
So a 50/50 senate, and a House where if five seats change hands would be reversed, to her means they should do everything they want. Imagine if this were four years ago and we had a Republican majority, would she say the same?

Let’s close with a quote that may well apply here. It’s from P.J. O’Rourke: “Giving money and power to  government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys. “
