They’re Hooked on “A Feeling” about Election Fraud

Winks and nudges to keep the woke mob at bay. The most highly sought state-level office across these United States —27 state races with 119 Republican and Democratic candidates from Alabama to Wyoming as we approach the dreaded 2022 Primary Elections—is that of Secretary of State. It is a battle for control of our democratic process—namely, the sanctity of our votes—with Republican Conservative candidates blatantly anointing Trump as the party savior while continuing to promulgate the election [...]

Going for the Jugular when Judging Our Judges

Digging up the dirt on the latest judicial candidate. We’ve all been told that judges are supposed to be nonpartisan and objective in their decisions, basing their opinions on legal precedent (a.k.a. applicable law) as it currently exists. That applies to the U.S. Supreme Court down to the lower courts, including the county Court of Common Pleas and the lowest rung of the Pennsylvania ladder, Magisterial District Judges, numbering four in my mostly rural county and into [...]

Terrorism Tamed to “Legitimate Political Discourse”

Does it? In a true Democracy, three Presidents since 1988 would have lost.  In a simple system of majority rule, Mr. Biden’s thumping margin of more than seven million votes would have been the last word. For that matter, so would Hillary Clinton’s national margin of nearly three million votes in 2016: Mr. Trump would not have had a 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue address in which to barricade himself in 2020. — Jedediah Britton-Purdy in the January 2, [...]

Squandering Our Last Chance at Redemption?

GOP blows chance at redemption but the Shinola lives on in D.C. Was anyone really surprised when the U.S. Senate failed to impeach the former president? We all saw it coming. Just like we all saw the big lie about stealing the vote coming when Trump started jawing about it weeks before the election. The dude is so transparent— and I don’t mean transparent in a good way. I mean transparent because, as they say in poker, [...]

For Some with Opinions, Ignorance Is Bliss

Everyone seems to have an opinion, but we all can’t be right. The only sin we never forgive is a difference of opinion. — Ralph Waldo Emerson I prefer not to respond to comments about my blog on Facebook, favorable or otherwise, because I’ve made my point and others can say what they want. Maybe we’ll all learn something. Getting caught up in a debate with someone who seems to be living in an alternate universe is [...]

A Pair of Republicans Worth Emulating

As the charges of voter fraud run their course, some party loyalists have stood their ground. I can’t think of a time when so many people — people who regard themselves as patriots are as distrustful of our democracy as today. Having a president who fuels that mistrust to the extent where supporters view everything around them as a conspiracy is certainly a big part of it. The election has been portrayed as a massive fraud with [...]

Curbing Bearers of False Witness in Politics

Separate truths keep Americans at odds. I’ve always been a devotee of fact checking, especially in the political climate that has overwhelmed us since the political campaigning that prefaced the 2016 presidential election. It wasn’t just the presidential candidates themselves, but the congressional races where everything was divided into us-versus-them rhetoric and the campaign ads were replete with exaggerations and lies. Social media was a traffic jam of people who didn’t know what they were talking about [...]

Evangelicals Deliver President from Accountability

How did Trump become brightest hope of evangelicals? I’ve been curious for some time about the tremendous popularity Trump has enjoyed with the once judgmental evangelical leadership. Evangelicals represent more than a fourth of all active voters (26 percent) and one third of all Republican voters. Seventy-five to eighty percent of them voted for Trump in 2016 and seem poised to do the same in November of 2020. Even the recent publicity stunt of Trump using the [...]

How Fox Changed the Integrity of Our News

Keeping up with the virus on Fox News. I believe that the public journal is a public trust; that all connected with it are, to the full measure of their responsibility, trustees for the public; that the acceptance of a lesser service than public service is betrayal of this trust… I believe that a journalist should write only what he holds in his heart to be true. — Part of The Journalist’s Creed by Walter Williams (1914) [...]

Partisanship: And Never the Twain Shall Meet

Forget that "more perfect union" our founders called for. It's us-versus-them from hereon in. To me it’s a little scary that everyone is so locked into political party regardless of what is right or wrong, true or false and moral or immoral. Where have all the nuances gone on what constitutes a Democrat or Republican? I think of myself as being a moderate, whether as a Democrat or Republican (and I’ve been both), but I don’t know [...]
