11-11-19 Impeachment

It was almost humorous to watch the Democrats sound so somber concerning the recent impeachment vote in the House, when inside you know they were jumping for joy. We’ll see if they are jumping for joy a year from now.

This impeachment push is a high risk political move and may be a sign of desperation. The House vote was purely partisan with no Republicans voting for it and two Democrats joining them. It can be said that there is bi-partisan opposition to impeachment.

Democrats apparently think that they should be exempt from investigation, especially if they’re running for president. President Trump is being accused of a quid pro quo with Ukraine, while Joe Biden boasts about doing that very thing when he was vice president. Trump can simply argue that he wants corruption investigated in any country that we are giving aid to. If Hunter and Joe Biden are affected by that, too bad. Hunter Biden had no business being there in the first place.

The founders never intended that impeachment should be used as a political tactic (there’s no expectation of conviction and removal by the Senate) in an election year to damage a political opponent. This is unprecedented. I don’t ever cite the polls (ask Hillary how accurate they are), but I’m guessing that sane voters, especially in the swing states, have had enough of Democrats continually attacking this president instead of doing their job as legislators. It’s pretty pathetic when you care more about hurting the president than helping your constituents.

11-4-19 Forgiveness

We normally think that “armed and dangerous” describes a criminal, but sometimes it applies to the police. Such was the case with Dallas police officer Amber Guyger. She was cell phone distracted, sending racy pictures to her boyfriend, and walked into the wrong apartment.

The apartment belonged to Botham Jean, who was sitting on the couch eating popcorn watching football. He had tragically left the front door ajar. Officer Guyger walked in and shot him dead before realizing that she was in the wrong apartment.

It was clearly an accident, and she was clearly negligent. I think the sentence of ten years in prison was about right, although she’ll only serve five. What an amazing scene at the sentencing when Brandt Jean forgave Amber Guyger for killing his brother and gave her a big hug. What a picture of grace, especially since one was white and the other black. After the trial, Judge Tammy Kemp, who was also African-American, gave Amber a hug, her own Bible, and urged her to follow Jesus. Wow!

The preacher in me can’t help but make application. We have all sinned, whether in thought, word, or deed, and fallen far short of the glory of God. Jesus, nevertheless, stands ready, with outstretched arms, to receive us, if we will only come to Him in repentance and faith. Have you experienced this awesome soul-saving hug from our Lord Jesus Christ? It’s truly life changing and the beginning of a new life.

10-28-19 Sore Losers

There are few things worse than a sore loser. Democrats simply cannot accept the fact that they lost to the likes of Donald J. Trump in the 2016 election. They have worked tirelessly ever since to undue the election results and oust a duly-elected president. This is unprecedented in American politics. Normal people accept a political loss and try for the next election, but that’s not what we are seeing.

Why is the media so obsessed with taking down this president? Well, for one thing, Trump outsmarted them in 2016. The liberal media unwittingly helped elect him by giving him extensive coverage during the campaign. They thought it would expose how unfit he was for the job, but the opposite happened. It reminds me of Archie Bunker in the old sitcom All in the Family. The writers intended to mock Archie Bunker, but most people liked him. They thought his progressive son-in-law was indeed a meathead.

Furthermore, the media’s not used to a president that punches back. Have you heard how he speaks to them at a press conference? He calls them names right to their faces, and you know what? They deserve it. They report anything negative on the president, real or imagined, and completely ignore his accomplishments.

Congressman Al Green gave it away the other day when he said, “If we don’t impeach him, he’ll get re-elected.”

Democrats are playing a dangerous game by using government agencies and officials to plot a coup against the president. I don’t know what a 21st century civil war looks like, and I don’t want to find out. If President Trump is impeached and removed from office over a phone call, all hell will break loose. Hopefully cooler heads will prevail. I think Republicans understand what’s going on and will prevent such. To those with Trump derangement syndrome I say, “Get some help.”

10-21-19 China

The big, brave NBA can shame and boycott North Carolina for not allowing biological males to use the women’s restroom, but they cower before the Chinese communists and their blatant human rights abuses. That is both cowardly and hypocritical. Their morality is selective, and obviously for sale.

We mistakenly thought that by opening up trade with Communist China they would gradually allow western-style freedom. Wrong. They used the wealth to bolster their own oppressive Communist Party control over the people. Instead of accepting our American values of free speech, they are exporting their communist values of intimidation and threats. NBA players and fans must be silent about China’s human rights abuses.

The Hong Kong Chinese have enjoyed western-style freedom for decades and don’t want to lose it. That’s why they are protesting so hard. That could be us in a few years if the socialist Democrats take over this country.

President Trump is at least trying to hold China responsible for some of their unfair trade practices. That’s more than any other president has done. I’m sure China would much prefer a Democrat president. Heck, Joe Biden is already bought and paid for. People want to know where Hunter Biden is. Well, he’s somewhere living high on the one billion he got from China for simply riding along with daddy on Air Force Two.

10-14-19 Investigations

So, you can investigate President Trump and his family non-stop (the Dems have made it a full-time ministry), but try to investigate a Democrat and the mediacrats go crazy. When Democrats investigate Republicans, they’re simply exercising their constitutional duty of oversight and accountability, but when Republicans investigate Democrats, it’s a politically motivated abuse of power. That’s how the game is played in D.C.

Does anyone think that Hunter Biden, the son of former VP Joe Biden, was worth 80K per/mo to a Ukrainian oil and gas company that was under investigation for corruption? Heck, no. The money was clearly spent to curry favor with Joe Biden, Obama’s point man on Ukraine. Can that be proven? Probably not, unless you could get transcripts of all the phone calls, but that only happens to Republicans.

I suspect this so-called whistle-blower is nothing but a deep-state operative in line with Comey, McCabe, Strzok, Clapper, and Brennan, who used their offices to undermine the president. Trump’s phone call to the newly-elected Ukrainian president, where he simply asks him to reopen an investigation that Joe Biden boasted about having stopped by threatening to withhold American aid, is hardly an impeachable offense.

The good news is that Republicans are on to these tactics, because they’ve seen it all before. I think the latest impeachment push is just a big bluff. I noticed that Nancy Pelosi hasn’t taken an official vote on it, nor will she. They’re just trying to drive up the negatives on Trump, but may be driving up their own negatives even more. Trump’s personality and in-your-face style may offend people, but that’s not grounds for impeachment.
