One Last Time (I Hope)

Sorry for returning to politics, but Kathleen Parker wrote an opinion piece for the WAPO that really impressed me.

I was quickly drawn in by her opening remarks:

Truth be known, I haven’t liked Trump since he came on the stage. Not my kind of guy. The thought that he could become president was, to me, absurd and sickening.

Here is the link. BTW, don’t be put off by the article’s title. You’ll understand more when you read her column.

How The GOP Can Be Reborn

Defeat Trump

Just came across this writer (via Zoe) and overwhelmingly felt his words needed to be shared.

Defeat Trump on Every Front

Warning: The post is long but well worth your time. It was written on January 12 and, as is common in today’s world, events continue to evolve. But I believe his points are extremely relevant to what is happening –and needs to happen– within the U.S. political world.

ReBlog: Hopefully the last letter to my Senators about Trump

A letter for the ages!

Ends and Beginnings

I know this email is a waste of time, but it makes me feel better writing it. For the last four years you have supported, shielded, defended, and turned a blind eye to a man and an administration that has encouraged hate, racism, and division. A man and an administration that has mocked and disregarded the standards and norms of the office of President and the Constitution. A man and an administration that has put their own self-interest above the interest, safety, and security of American citizens. A man and an administration that is trying to disregard the will of the people and steal the election which is nothing less than an attempted coup d’état. Fortunately for America, Trump and his henchmen and henchwomen are just as inapt and ineffective as he was at being President.

It appears that Trump’s “plan” (which will be the first plan he has had…

What Say You?

As most people know, the outcome of the recent presidential election isn’t really in doubt, yet Dear Leader continues to dispute the results.

No news there.

But the question becomes:  Will he … can he … succeed in his efforts? Or will he FINALLY go down in defeat?

According to Politico, in order for Trump to overcome election results, some unprecedented legal steps would be required.

  • Republican-led legislatures in states Biden won would need to move to overturn their state’s popular vote and appoint a slate of Trump electors when the Electoral College meets on Dec. 14.
  • Since such maneuvers would be certain to meet vetoes from Democratic governors, the lawmakers would also need to secure a legal determination that they hold the sole power to appoint electors — a disputed legal premise that has never been tested.

Both actions are considered long shots; however, as most of us know, Trump is desperate.

So what say you?

No sure? Perhaps try consulting your crystal ball. Or do a bit of ommmm and see what the universe says. Or … I know! Ask your Republican neighbor!

Or better yet, make an educated guess.

A Pardon for Trump

what

Yes, that was my immediate reaction. WHAT??!!?

But then I read this article …

Why Biden Should Pardon Trump

Here is the opening line:

If President-elect Joe Biden hopes to fulfill his pledge to unify the nation, he should do the unthinkable and pardon Donald Trump.

The article was written by Michael Conway, counsel for the House Judiciary Committee in the impeachment inquiry of President Richard Nixon in 1974. While I felt he made a couple of respectable points in his argument, I’m curious to know what my readers think.

BTW, there’s a “Quick Vote” option in the middle of the article if you want to share your POV and compare it with how others feel about the issue.
