TRANSPARENCY – Democrat Transparency???


BLOG POST 1 - Transparency

I am angered and amused by the hypocrisy of the Liberal Leftists on the Democrat side of the political ledger.  They are clamoring for TRANSPARENCY with Judge Kavanaugh and talking about the great travesty of our political and constitutional system if EVERY SINGLE DOCUMENT connected to him in any manner is not revealed.  Before you scream, “What’s wrong with that?” I ask you to turn back the pages of history just a few years and consider the position of the Democrats.  For example, Senator Durbin you are attempting to make it sound like not having every single document regarding Judge Kavanaugh the end of the world.  However, your position regarding Benghazi, Hillary’s emails from an unsecured server to a foreign government was possibly nothing more than her signing up for Yoga. I’m not sure what foreign government she would have needed to contact for that purpose, but alas that was the position of the Left.  NOW, it is the difference between life and death if EVERY SINGLE DOCUMENT is not brought to the light and the time required by the Left to peruse them would be years, not months.  THERE YOU HAVE IT, that is the plan – DELAY, DELAY, DELAY. If the Democrats had a history of TRANSPARENCY I could accept their diatribe and rhetoric now, but they have not been.

Senator Durbin had the audacity to say to Judge Kavanaugh, “If you believe that your public-service record is one that you can stand behind and defend, I hope that at the end of this you will ask this Committee to suspend until we are given all the documents, until we have the time to review them, and then we resume this hearing.  What I’m saying to you is basically this: if you will trust the American people, they will trust you.  But if your effort today continues to conceal and hide documents, it raises a suspicion,” Durbin said.  “For the sake of this nation, for the sanctity of the Constitution that we both honor, step up.  Ask this meeting, this gathering, to suspend until all the documents of your public career are there for the American people to see.”  HYPOCRISY is too kind a word, but I don’t use profanity so it’s the best I can muster for Senator Durbin and the Leftist howling that is taking place.  His qualifications are not their focus but his UNWILLINGNESS to be a Leftist Political Activist on the Court that troubles them.  His stance on the Constitution that is similar to Justice Antonin Scalia is what troubles them.  His belief that Judges are not players, but umpires troubles them.  In short, he is not one of them, so he is unacceptable and unqualified in their minds.  Their hypocrisy over how they treated Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and the nominees of the former president reflect their true view of transparency.

Now regarding the much-discussed New York Times’ release of the so-called White House Senior Official Memo I have several observations.  First, if this a real memo from a real person who is a Senior Member of the Trump White House, the person is a liar.  Before you lose your cookies over that statement let me explain.  That person, presuming it is a man, if he is, in fact, a Senior Member of the Trump Staff, he had to LIE to the President regarding his political position.  If you are okay with a person doing that to gain an inside track to shipwreck this president, then you are devoid of the very things you accuse Trump of lacking – Character and Integrity!  Get mad at me if you please, and unfriend me on Facebook, stop reading my blogs, and don’t give me the time of day, that’s your choice.  I do not believe that “the end justifies the means.”  This person acknowledged themselves as being part of the ‘resistance’ and Deep State.’  If you can applaud the desire to unconstitutionally overthrow a president in a political coup then you need to pause and rethink your position.  Do you really want to open that can of worms?

I do not believe any president would employ a person that is adamantly against him as a Senior Member of his staff.  That would be suicidal politically, and I don’t believe any of our former presidents wanted to commit political suicide.  Second, the assertions or allegations are laughable and could have been written by anyone and would not require Insider Information.  They are generalities, for the most part, and parroting of the Liberal Leftists talking points.  The president is painted as being ‘amoral’ with no discernible moorings to ‘first principles.’  The assertion that he is anti-trade and anti-democratic is amusing.  He has helped trade and if anti-democratic is being Anti the Leftist Democrats I can buy that be if the assertion is that he is Anti our system of government that is absurd.  This so-called memo brings up the favorite song of the Democrats regarding Trump and would sing that song about any Republican President who did not dance to their tune, THE 25TH AMENDMENT.  The lines that are the most troubling are, Given the instability many witnessed, there were early whispers within the cabinet of invoking the 25th Amendment, which would start a complex process for removing the president. But no one wanted to precipitate a constitutional crisis. So, we will do what we can to steer the administration in the right direction until — one way or another — it’s over.”   That last sentence is more than a little troubling it is alarming!  The claim that their effort to overturn and overthrow a sitting president is not the work of the Deep State but the work of the Steady State is astounding.  Steady State?  This individual, if he/she exists, deems him/herself as the guardian of democracy and the Real America resisting Tyranny and like Mighty Mouse, rushing to save the day.

The Democrats love this because it is a feeble attempt to paint themselves as the true patriots and guardians of liberty who are willing to work with the other side to achieve what is best for America.  Seriously?  Look at how they are dealing with Judge Kavanaugh, and how they have addressed every item the Republicans have presented to Congress.  WILLING TO WORK TOGETHER?  In what world?  When have they done that?  They think bipartisanship is the Republicans signing off on what the Democrats want and even then, they trash the GOP and all of us who do not vote Democrat as more evil than Lucifer himself.  This memo then takes a shot at the millions of us who voted for Donald Trump saying, “The bigger concern is not what Mr. Trump has done to the presidency but rather what we as a nation have allowed him to do to us. We have sunk low with him and allowed our discourse to be stripped of civility.”   SERIOUSLY?  Who has stripped the discourse of civility?  Who, The Democrats, the Activist, the Resistance, that’s who!

In my view, and that of some Constitutional Scholars and Legal Experts that I have talked to and read their opinions, this memo constitutes or borders on TREASON.  It is an attempt to overthrow a legitimate president and is a direct assault on our System of Government.  You may disagree, and that’s your privilege but before you call me names, look at the good things that have happened in the first two years of this president and the fact that this was a legitimate election!  The Economy alone should be enough to be thankful Hillary Clinton was not allowed to continue the destructive economic policies of Barack Obama.  There is more, much more, but I will leave it at that.  November 6, 2018, is a day that may well live in Infamy for America.  What we do on that day will determine our Republic’s future.

God bless you and God bless America!
