THE DEVIL MADE ME DO IT

THE DEVIL MADE ME DO IT

Clerow “Flip” Wilson was a comedian and actor best known for his television appearances during the late 1960s and 1970s. From 1970 to 1974, Wilson hosted his own weekly variety series The Flip Wilson Show, and introduced viewers to his recurring character Geraldine. Wilson died in 1998 but his stories of Geraldine have a lesson about current political situations. of today.

THE GROUP OF AMERICAN CATHOLIC BISHOPS & THEIR INVOLEMENT IN POLITICS

THE GROUP OF AMERICAN CATHOLIC BISHOPS & THEIR INVOLEMENT IN POLITICS

A minority of American Catholic bishops would deny church communion to president Joe Biden for what they claim is his conflict of position with their interpretation of Church teachings on policies regarding sexuality and abortion. These bishops would deny communion to president Biden and any other politician with views in conflict with  theirs. Why? Well, because they say to receive Communion, which is a central part of the Mass service, Catholics cannot “be conscious of grave sin as it would…

HOW ABOUT YOU? HAVE YOU GROWN WEARY OF THE LIES AND HALF TRUTHS ABOUT FRAUD & THE GENERAL ELECTION?

We just came back from Scottsdale where we have a vacation home. The news is full of the Arizona general ballot recount in Maricopa County. Arizona’s Maricopa County ballots, six months after the 2020 general election, are being examined and recounted by contractors working for a Florida-based company.  Former President Donald Trump claimed without evidence that his loss was marred by fraud in Arizona. Senate President Karen Fann, has ordered a recount. Fann used the Senate’s subpoena power to take…

WELL, TEXAN REPUBLICANS, HOW DO YOU LIKE DE-REGULATION NOW?

WELL, TEXAN REPUBLICANS, HOW DO YOU LIKE DE-REGULATION NOW?

Texas, the “go it alone” state, has had a lesson about not regulating vital public industries like electrical service provided to a state or community. Texas rejected federal electricity regulations and a shared high-voltage connection with neighboring states. Republican political leaders in Texas have prized the states “self-reliance”, and it’s” go it alone” ideas and it’s cheap power. They brag about the states deregulation of the grid for bringing inexpensive electricity to the states resident and businesses. Rick Perry, former…

THE SILENCE IS ALMOST DEAFENING – ISN’T IT WONDERFUL?

THE SILENCE IS ALMOST DEAFENING – ISN’T IT WONDERFUL?

What silence you say? I’m talking, of course, about the fact that Donald Trump, the ex-president of the United States, was permanently suspended by Twitter Inc from using his account @real DonaldTrump. He was indefinitely  suspended from using his Facebook and Instagam accounts as well.  Isn’t it wonderful? Why? Because we are talking about a flood of messages during his term of office. He tweeted or retweeted approximately 3,500 times in 2018. But that grew to 7,700 times in 2019….

SHOULD DONALD TRUMP BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE OR NOT?

SHOULD DONALD TRUMP BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE OR NOT?

Republican members of congress who were incensed at the president for causing an out-of-control mob to march on the capital building are now quickly backing away from sanction or impeachment out of fear of Trump’s political power. Should he be convicted? Does the constitution provide for an impeachment conviction after a president has left office? Should anything be done or should we just move forward with our new administration? It is clear the president was the instigator of inflaming a…

WELCOME TO A NEW BANNANA REPUBLIC: THE U.S.A.!

Yesterday,  Wednesday, January 6, 2021, marked the shocking events which normally occur only in Third World and Banana Republic areas of the world. In addition, it involved both Washington’s: Washington DC and Olympia Washington. We witnessed out of control mobs taking over the legislative building and trying to take over government to restore Trump to office.  The rioters were egged on by the president of the United States, who has spent weeks falsely attacking the integrity of the election and…

THE PRINCE OF DARKNESS & HIS DISHONEST ELECTION RESULT SCAM

THE PRINCE OF DARKNESS & HIS DISHONEST ELECTION RESULT SCAM

The results are not in doubt. The 2020 presidential election results are not remotely close between the two candidates in the popular vote. Biden leads Trump by nearly 6 million votes. While the electoral college of electors do not vote until December 14, there is no question about the winner of electoral votes. Before all of the states have certified Joe Biden has won 306 to Donald Trump’s 232 electoral votes, a substantial victory for Biden. And, what was President…

WHAT DID YOU THINK ABOUT THE SECOND PRESIDENTIAL “DEBATE”?

WHAT DID YOU THINK ABOUT THE SECOND PRESIDENTIAL “DEBATE”?

What did you think about last night's second and last presidential, so-called, debate? Here is my reaction to what I saw on television last night. You should know that it comes from someone who has already voted for Joe Biden, but here's what I thought. Who Won? I don't think it made any difference as far as influencing the great majority of voters. I can't imagine anyone, who after all of this time, hasn't already long ago made up their…

WHAT’S WRONG WITH APPOINTING JUDGE BARRETT TO THE U.S. SUPREME COURT?

WHAT’S WRONG WITH APPOINTING JUDGE BARRETT TO THE U.S. SUPREME COURT?

I think the political reality is that if the Democrats had been in control within a few weeks of a presidential election, they very likely would gone ahead and confirmed their selection of a Supreme Court justice before the election just like the GOP is doing now. My problem is the offensive hypocritical conduct of the GOP leadership this year in contrast to the last appointment. The GOP two leaders responsible this are the chairman of the judiciary committee overseeing…
