Diamond And Silk And An Unusual Sight These Days On The Streets Of San Francisco

He's On The Stage. Will Mikey Like It?

One of the first news stories I heard this morning was that little Mikey Bloomberg had met the modified criteria to be on the debate stage for the Nevada debate. For a while that even DNC scheming and changing the rules wouldn’t be enough to get him there, but Mikey managed to buy enough support through his non-stop ad blitz to cross the threshold. It will be interesting to see the questions that will be asked of him tonight. I’m sure the moderators have already received their instructions from the Central Committee and will be limited in what they will be able to bring up. But I hold on to a thin thread of hope that one moderator still has enough integrity and intestinal fortitude to ask real questions. Here are some I would like to see asked:

Mr. Bloomberg, everyone on this stage has been working very hard to get here. They’ve had to raise money hold rallies, answer questions at town halls, and news conferences. Many have even had town halls on Fox News Channel, of all places. All you’ve done so far is spend money. How does that qualify you to be on this stage?

Mr. Bloomberg, many of the candidates, have attacked President Trump as a racist because of certain statements he made. However, just in the past few days, we have been reminded of your racism in action and your defense of it. Not only your defense of stop and Frisk but your statements like how African American and Latino males “don’t know how to behave in the workplace,” among other things. You have apologized and said you have changed your mind. Why should we believe you?

Mr. Bloomberg, you have boasted in your commercials of how you have created so many jobs. But we are reminded of the numerous reports of your verbal abuse and harassment of women in your workplace. You have settled lawsuits in this regard. Given your obvious disdain for women in the workforce, why should any woman vote for you?

Mr. Bloomberg, in a now widely circulated video, you have made demeaning and ignorant remarks about farmers. Given how you expressed your utter contempt for some of the hardest working people in our country, why should anyone who has to get up and go to a job that you would classify as not needing much grey matter, vote for you?

That’s just a few of the questions I would like to see asked. But perhaps if none of the moderators have the guts to ask them, maybe one or more of the candidates on stage will. If they do, you can be sure of one thing. Mikey will most assuredly NOT like it. 

Its Really Getting Old

Impeach! Resign! Racist! Abuse of Power! This is all the Democrats know. There is no longer any such thing as a policy disagreement. Every action the President takes, whether they secretly agree with it or not, has to be condemned in the harshest terms. One example is the takin out of Solemieni. He was nothing more and nothing less than an enemy combatant in a war. A war declared on us by Iran. But the Democrats and much of the media have treated more a martyr than the vile, disgusting, murderous human being he was. 

The latest meltdown is happening now over what in normal times would be a routine administrative function of the Attorney General. Roger Stone was prosecuted only because of his association with Donald Trump. The way he was arrested is typical of how the left likes to use an overwhelming show of force when it suits their purpose. 

Mr. Stone posed no physical threat, but a heavily armed swat team showed up at his house like they were taking down Pablo Escobar. They also tipped off CNN so they could film how it took ten heavily armed paramilitary police troops to take down one unarmed older man and his deaf wife. This is the stuff of Klingon drinking songs. I think if anyone got a papercut doing the paperwork on this, they would have added assaulting a police officer to the charges. 

After a rigged trial with an anti-Trump Judge and a virulently anti-Trump jury foreperson, Stone was convicted. No surprise here. That is what Kangaroo Courts are supposed to do. Unlike the one incompetently presided over by Nancy Pelosi, this one functioned as designed. 

The prosecutors, drunk with power after foisting this charade on the court, decided to offer a sentencing recommendation of seven to nine years.  This is triple what normal sentencing guidelines would justify. Attorney General Barr, in his function as the head of the Justice Dept and those prosecutors’ boss, wanted the recommendation to be more in line with legal norms.  

It just so happens that on the night before Barr made public that he wanted a more reasonable sentencing recommendation, the President took to Twitter. In that tweet, President Trump expressed his displeasure with the seven to nine-year situation. The left lost its mind. Four prosecutors who disagreed with the decision of their boss resigned — good riddance, in my opinion. Pelosi and Schumer are clamoring for investigations and trying to take any opportunity they can to interfere with the 2020 elections. Not surprising when you consider the comedy of errors in their party as they fumble and stumble around for a leader.
