Thinking Out Loud…

First Happy Thanksgiving To You and Yours

In this short week as we get ready to celebrate the holidays let’s stop and give thanks for all we have. As you celebrate, hopefully with those you love, we send our best to you. Happy Thanksgiving.

Now For Some Thoughts On The News

They set the bail for the Wisconsin parade driving murderer at $5 million. Let’s see, that’s $4,999,000 more than the bail he was on for two cases already.
In one he is charged with resisting or obstructing an officer, reckless endangering, disorderly conduct, bail jumping and battery. 
In the other case he is charged with reckless endangering and illegal possession of a firearm. In that case, a woman told police that Mr. Brooks deliberately ran her over with the same vehicle he killed with on Sunday.

And the Democrats want no bail. Do people know what they are voting for?

If you missed this, then you don’t know the left wants to make it even worse. No one should be incarcerated.
This from “Axios on HBO,” 
Jonathan Swan challenged Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) on the breadth of a plan for closing federal prisons that she has endorsed — and is supported by some criminal-justice activists.
“Everyone’s like, Oh my God, we’re going to just release everybody.” Tlaib said. 
Swan interjected that the BREATHE Act actually says:
Release everyone from federal prisons over 10 years.
She defended that Act and plan.
Then we get crime, robberies, rapes and murders from those who have no business being on the street.

I ask again: Do people know what they vote for?

Remember when the FBI was unimpeachable? It seems every week there is another story that says otherwise. Yesterday it was announced the U.S. will pay $127.5 million to families in the Parkland school shooting. Why?
The settlement resolves claims made by 40 survivors and families from 16 of the 17 people killed in the 2018 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., over the FBI’s failure to investigate tips warning the shooter had guns and planned to attack.
The FBI missed it.

And On The Administration

After stopping pipelines and drilling, then begging OPEC and the Russians for more oil, the President has now decided to tap the emergency pipeline. Emergency? You mean the one he created?
They are planning to release 50 million barrels of oil from the Strategic Reserve.
You know how much that is? Two and a half days maybe. This is their solution?
The other question is what about the reserve?
Well they said it will be replenished. Oh, that solves the shortage.
Mr, President, the answer is “drill baby drill.” Turn America loose.
Did the people know they were voting for higher gas prices and begging OPEC and the Russians for oil?

And the President renominated Jay Powell as Fed Chair. Liberal Senators like Elizabeth Warren had come out ahead of time saying they would vote against him.
Want an interesting fact?
When he was first nominated, guess which senator voted “no” then.
VP Kamala Harris is the answer.

Let’s not forget that the House passed the “Build Back Better” plan, that according to all the Democratic Leaders up to the President, costs us “zero.”
I guess they forgot to read the CBO report which said it adds more than $367 billion to the deficit.
Who votes for people who think you are so gullible that you believe it’s “zero” because they say it is?

I guess the same people who believe that it will help inflation.
After all, isn’t more spending the answer to run away spending?

What About Cuomo The Hero?

Remember when Andrew Cuomo was the hero – he wrote a book about leadership – won an Emmy?
He was the example of how to, and those Republican Governors like DeSantis were the villains?
Well, the New York State Assembly Judiciary Committee released the report from its lawyers on the allegations against the former Governor.
He was damned for sexual harassment and lying about the number of deaths from Covid.
No reason to write more. The leftist media lied. People died. They made a hero of a lying harasser.
They need to apologize for failure to do their jobs.

Everything about 2022 says Republican – But

But keep conscious of what we have been telling you of the divide in the Republican party. The question to us continues to be can Joe Biden and team mess things up far more than former President Trump can divide his party?
Here’s some of the latest from that:
In Maryland, the former President jumped in endorsing a candiate for Governor who backs his claims fully. The current Republican Governor said this: “Personally, I’d prefer endorsements from people who didn’t lose Maryland by 33 points.” Ouch.

In Georgia, Gov. Brian Kemp lamented that his conservative bona fides have been questioned by Mr. Trump, who has encouraged Georgia Republicans, including former Sen. David Perdue, to consider primary campaigns. “It’s insane,” Mr. Kemp said. Mr. Trump was the first Republican presidential candidate in 28 years to lose in the state.

Former V.P. Pence said this: “I want to be clear. I’m going to be supporting incumbent Republican Governors.”

In Pennsylvania, Sean Parnell, the Trump backed candidate, backed out of the race after a judge handed his estranged wife sole legal custody of their children. His wife had alleged that Parnell attempted to choke her and hit their children. He denied the allegation, but suspended his campaign after the court ruling.

Here is the Republican dilemma.
A return of the former President in 2024 is music to the ears of Republicans, according to national polls.
However, the poll also shows the rest of the electorate would rather he stay on the sidelines.
Here are the numbers:
The Marquette Law School released a poll of adults that showed 60% of Republicans want Mr. Trump to run for president in 2024.
“Among all respondents, 28% would like to see Trump make another run for the presidency, while 71% do not want him to run again.”

That coincided with the release of a new OH Predictive Insights (OHPI) survey that found more than half of Arizona Republicans believe Mr. Trump should make a comeback in the next election. That compares to 27% of independent voters and less than a percent of Democrats who want Mr. Trump to run again.

Winning a primary and losing the general is not what this nation needs. Just look at the mess we’re in.

There’s so much more, but the holiday is here.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
