NFL Games Should Be Boycotted Until The Decisions Of Its Referees Are Reviewable, And A Hack Referee Is Fired

31 01 2023

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

Over the years, the NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has been criticized; and many have called for his resignation.  But so far, he has weathered the storms.[2]  The latest criticism of the league comes in the form of biased refereeing in a championship game—where the referee’s decisions should be reviewable; and the hack ref Ronald Tolbert should be fired and never allowed to referee another game during his lifetime.[3]. Needless to say, Cincinnati Bengals’ fans are livid.[4]

My two favorite quarterbacks in the NFL are Joe Burrow of the Bengals and Patrick Mahomes of the Kansas City Chiefs.  Both are excellent and a credit to the sport.  I have followed “Joe Cool” since he came to LSU and joined “Coach O”—or the wonderful Cajun, Ed Orgeron—to win the national championship and the coveted Heisman Trophy.  Last weekend, they squared off in the AFC championship game, with Mahomes being a bit “gimpy” because of an ankle injury.

The game should have been decided by the athletes, not by some hack ref who is a disgrace to the sport, and has been elevated beyond his capabilities.  As always, Burrow was a gentleman after the game, and classy; and he praised both teams and their players.[5]. But the fans were irate, and justifiably so.  At a time when many Americans turn to sports as a relief from their day-to-day financial stresses, and other worries and frustrations[6], skewed results in football are the last thing that they need.

Thuggery In America

28 01 2023

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

Moose Moosler commented at the UK’s MailOnline about the death in Memphis, Tennessee:

So it seems the ‘protestors’ don’t even know the 5 cops have already been fired and are up on charges of murder.  This nonsense has never been about what they say it is about.[2]

Since the anti-war demonstrations at Berkeley during the Vietnam War, and the Rodney King riots that began in Los Angeles, “professional” rioters have existed and spread their venom, like vicious vipers.

I have followed riots since my days in law school at Berkeley during that war, and then the Rodney King riots, and the burning of Washington D.C. after Martin Luther King, Jr. was killed in Memphis too.[3]

The thugs, slugs, hoods and mongrels of “Black Lives Matter,” Antifa and other far-Left groups have burned our cities; killed or injured innocent Americans including our police; and destroyed black and other businesses.  Yet, few have been incarcerated. 

Does law enforcement sometimes overreact?  Of course.[4]  Many officers are frustrated; others have resigned or taken early retirements; and it’s surprising that there are many left, certainly where riots have occurred.  Why risk one’s life, only to be attacked?

Who Controls America?

20 01 2023

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

I do not consider myself to be naïve.  Having spent two years in intelligence at the Pentagon with the highest security clearances possible at that time, and then having worked for three-and-a-half years in the United States Senate—and for many more years after that, working with the Congress and official Washington—I have seen both the good and the bad.  I was present when Joe Biden attended his first committee meeting, one month after his wife and daughter were killed in a tragic auto accident; and I had great sympathy for him.

I grew up in Hollywood (or Los Angeles), among the rich and famous; and I am not naïve about how the Harvey Weinsteins and their ilk have ruled that town for decades.  Women have been used and abused in both cities, like groupies at rock concerts.  It is what happens at the highest levels of power, throughout the world.  But every once in a while, something comes to my attention that incapsulates the evil that exists, and persists, better than I could describe it.  Last night it occurred in a monologue delivered by Tucker Carlson, which is worth repeating here.  I respectfully submit that it should be read (or viewed) in its entirety:

If you’re a normal person, it’s a pretty weird experience watching Joe Biden’s presidency get euthanized by his own party.  On one hand, there’s an undeniable thrill to it.  You have to admit that.  Biden is the most destructive president in American history.  More things have broken under his watch than under any other president.

Joe Biden deserves to be driven from office and disgraced, but for this?  Breaking federal classification rules, some of the stupidest and most dishonest laws Congress has ever passed?  It’s like arresting El Chapo for expired plates.  It’s missing the point, but it looks like that’s what’s going to happen.

It seems like every day, one of Joe Biden’s lawyers shows up with more sheaves of classified documents like a dog who has found another dead chipmunk under the house.  This bunch was in his office at Penn, the one paid for by the Communist Party of China.

These were found next to his sad, little midlife crisis sports car in a garage in Delaware and so on.  You keep waiting for the White House physician to announce another document trove has been discovered after a routine colonoscopy.  It could happen because at this point, you know exactly where this story is heading.

Permanent Washington does not want Joe Biden to run for president again.  This is how they’re sending that message.  Even CNN has decided to become interested in Joe Biden’s misdeeds two years into his presidency.  They’re doing segments in how classification laws protect this country from its mortal enemies like Russia.  So, you know for certain the order has gone out.  Biden is done.  What a missed opportunity this is.  If you’re looking for crimes that Joe Biden has committed, there is a very long list.

Our country is being invaded.  The world is on the brink of nuclear war.  American cities have become slums.  Our economy is in shambles.  Even our airplanes no longer take off on time.  It’s a disaster and Joe Biden and his staff have a hand in all of it.  In a country with a functioning government, Joe Biden would have been impeached before the first million illegal aliens crossed over our southern border, but no one did anything to stop it.  So now they’re arriving at the rate of a quarter-million a month.

GRIFF JENKINS: Customs and Border Protection sources exclusively tell Fox News more than 250,000 migrants were encountered at the border in the month of December, about as many people living in Scottsdale, Arizona, making it the highest month ever on record.  In Eagle Pass, Texas, the migrant surge continues.  Local Kinney County rancher Pam had a harrowing experience with migrants on her property.

RANCHER: I looked out the back and I could see three illegals walking up to the house.  I had gotten a gun, which is an AR-15.  I asked them, I said, “Please stop, go away,” and I had the gun in my hands and they just kind of looked at me and kind of smiled and I was like… “Just go away,” and they refused to do so. 

JENKINSThey’re on the other side of the glass trying to get in and not backing down?

RANCHER: Not backing down.  Even though I have a high-powerful rifle in my arms, they are not backing down.  That was scary.  

A rifle Joe Biden would like to take away from her.  So that, writ large, is the biggest story of our lifetimes.  It is the one thing Joe Biden has done that cannot be undone.  Our great-grandchildren are going to live with the consequences of this, but you’d never know it from watching most of the news.  There is an effective media blackout on Joe Biden’s immigration policies and other downstream effects on America.  There are too many strangers pouring in at once and as a result, the country is becoming chaotic.  Here’s a rare television news piece on what happened when officials in New York decided to house some of Joe Biden’s illegal aliens in a local hotel.

LAUREN SIMONETTI: An employee there says that migrants have made an absolute mess of the place.  You’re standing in front of it. Is that true?  

MADISON ALWORTH: Yeah, well, what we’re hearing from that employee is that the hotel is completely overrun.  He says, you know, of course, some people just looking for that better life, but as a result, the hotel is a mess and he fears for his safety.  

ROW NYC HOTEL EMPLOYEE FELIPE RODRIGUEZ: We don’t have any guests anymore.  They sold the entire hotel from the fourth floor to the 28th floor.  It’s all migrants.  So we got people who are getting drunk, using marijuana.  They are punching and beating their wives or their girlfriends.  We have teenagers running around wild around the hotel opening the fire exit doors and doing what teenagers do in the stairways and it’s a mess. 

“It’s a mess,” he said.  Of course, it is.  The whole country is a mess because Joe Biden has ignored immigration laws passed by the Congress.  That is a crime and it has killed huge numbers of Americans, hundreds of thousands dead from narcotics.

TOM WOLF, FORMER FENTANYL ADDICT: Fentanyl has changed the entire game here in San Francisco.  You can’t buy heroin out here anymore.  Nobody sells heroin and nobody uses heroin.  Everybody has transitioned over to fentanyl.  Fentanyl is the most dangerous drug to ever hit the streets in the United States in history.

SIMONETTI: Fentanyl has killed more than 70,000 Americans in 12 months.  Here in San Francisco, it’s the dominant drug.  It’s responsible for three-quarters of drug overdoses, brazen drug-dealing and rampant drug use in the shadow of city hall.  The same city hall, residents say, actively enable the fentanyl crisis.  

All of it.  Every gram came over an open border.  What’s notable as a political matter is that every one of these disasters, the fentanyl epidemic, the chaos and crime in our cities, the invasion underway through Texas, Arizona and California, all of those deeply concerned Americans.  We are not guessing at that.  Polls show it very clearly.

By contrast, how many voters do you think are lying awake right now worrying that public officials might violate some obscure federal classification law?  None, not a single person.  No one outside Washington cares or even understands the issue and yet it is classified documents, not our open borders, that the Justice Department is punishing Joe Biden for.  Why is that?  What’s going on here?  Well, it’s simple.  Washington is protecting itself.  Joe Biden alone is responsible for this crime.

He alone took home classified documents.  He didn’t have help in doing that, but allowing the country to be invaded, that’s not something you can do by yourself.  So, if Biden were to be taken down for opening the southern border, a lot of other people would go with them.  He had a lot of accomplices.  Permanent Washington doesn’t want that and ultimately and here’s the point: Permanent Washington is in charge.  It’s not the democracy you imagined.  We’re seeing that now.

So, if you want to understand, if you really want to understand how the American government actually works at the highest levels, and if you want to know why they don’t teach history anymore, one thing you should know is that the most popular president in American history was Richard Nixon.  Richard Nixon.  Yet somehow, without a single vote being cast by a single American voter, Richard Nixon was kicked out of office and replaced by the only unelected president in American history.  So, we went for the most popular president to a president nobody voted for.  Wait a minute, you may ask, why didn’t I know that?  Wasn’t Richard Nixon a criminal?

Wasn’t he despised by all decent people?  No, he wasn’t.  In fact, if any president could claim to be the people’s choice, it was Richard Nixon.  Richard Nixon was re-elected in 1972 by the largest margin of the popular vote ever recorded before or since.  Nixon got 17 million more votes than his opponent.  Less than two years later, he was gone.  He was forced to resign and in his place, an obedient servant of the federal agencies called Gerald Ford took over the White House.

How did that happen?  Well, it’s a long story, but here are the highlights and they tell you a lot.  Richard Nixon believes that elements in the federal bureaucracy were working to undermine the American system of government and had been doing that for a long time.  He often said that.  He was absolutely right.  On June 23, 1972, Nixon met with the then–CIA director, Richard Helms, at the White House.  During the conversation, which thankfully was tape-recorded, Nixon suggested he knew “who shot John,” meaning President John F. Kennedy.  Nixon further implied that the CIA was directly involved in Kennedy’s assassination, which we now know it was.  Helms’s telling response?  Total silence, but for Nixon, it didn’t matter because it was already over.  Four days before, on June 19, The Washington Post had published the first of many stories about a break-in at the Watergate office building. 

Unbeknownst to Nixon and unreported by The Washington Post, four of the five burglars worked for the CIA.  The first of many dishonest Watergate stories was written by a 29-year-old metro reporter called Bob Woodward.  Who exactly was Bob Woodward?  Well, he wasn’t a journalist.  Bob Woodward had no background whatsoever in the news business.  Instead, Bob Woodward came directly from the classified areas of the federal government.  Shortly before Watergate, Woodward was a naval officer at the Pentagon.

He had a top-secret clearance.  He worked regularly with the intel agencies.  At times, Woodward was even detailed to the Nixon White House, where he interacted with Richard Nixon’s top aides.  Soon after leaving the Navy, for reasons that have never been clear, Woodward was hired by the most powerful news outlet in Washington and assigned the biggest story in the country.  Just to make it crystal clear what was actually happening, Woodward’s main source for his Watergate series was the deputy director of the FBI, Mark Felt, and Mark Felt ran — and we’re not making this up — the FBI’s COINTELPRO program, which was designed to secretly discredit political actors, the federal agencies wanted to destroy — people like Richard Nixon.  And at the same time, those same agencies were also working to take down Nixon’s elected vice president, Spiro Agnew.  In the fall of 1973, Agnew was indicted for tax evasion and forced to resign.  His replacement was a colorless congressman from Grand Rapids called Gerald Ford.

What was Ford’s qualification for the job?  Well, he had served on the Warren Commission, which absolved the CIA of responsibility for President Kennedy’s murder.  Nixon was strong-armed into accepting Gerald Ford by Democrats in Congress.  “We gave Nixon no choice but Ford,” Speaker of the House Carl Albert later boasted.  Eight months later, Gerald Ford of the Warren Commission was the president of the United States.  See how that works?  So those are the facts, not speculation.  All of that actually happened.  None of it’s secret.  Most of it actually is on Wikipedia, but no mainstream news organization has ever told that story.  It’s so obvious, yet it’s intentionally ignored and as a result, permanent Washington remains in charge of our political system.

Unelected lifers in the federal agencies make the biggest decisions in American government and crush anyone who tries to rein them in and in the process, our democracy becomes a joke. Now, you may have noticed that the very first person in the Trump administration the agencies went after was Gen. Michael Flynn. Why Flynn? Because Mike Flynn was a career Army intel officer who ran the Defense Intelligence Agency. In other words, Mike Flynn knew exactly how the system worked, and as a result, he was capable of fighting back. Four days after Donald Trump’s inauguration, the FBI lured Mike Flynn into a meeting without his lawyer, concocted a series of fake crimes and forced him to resign.

So, that’s how things actually work in Washington.  Let’s stop lying about it.  Joe Biden, meanwhile, whooped like a hyena when the Justice Department destroyed Mike Flynn.  So, there is, we have to say, a certain perverse justice in watching something very similar happen to Joe Biden himself six years later.  Joe Biden does not deserve our sympathy.  He’s being shafted, but don’t weep for him, and yet, the rest of us do deserve a better system, an actual democracy.  When people nobody voted for run everything, you are not living in a free country.[2]

Can I attest to the accuracy of each and every fact and conclusion that Carlson has cited?  No, but they are close enough to what I know personally to be worth repeating here, and heeding.

Trump In 2024?

19 01 2023

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

Donald Trump has enemies galore—both foreign and domestic—some of whom would wish him dead.  Abraham Lincoln was killed by those who hated him; and the same was true of John F. Kennedy.  An assassin tried to kill Ronald Reagan; and it is not beyond the pale of reason to believe that an attempt might be made on Trump’s life.  After all, the FBI raided his home in Florida, while its Secret Service guards stood by and let it happen.[2]

Trump is the antithesis of everything that Joe Biden represents.  Biden embraces woke that is evil incarnate—beyond all reckoning—and a growing threat to our civilization.  Crime is unleashed; and it’s as though the lunatics are running the asylum.  Biden is corrupt and should be impeached and imprisoned, inter alia, having accumulated vast wealth illegally while being a public servant.  Trump was a businessman; and the attacks on him surely have dissuaded others in business from ever running for public offices.  Why expose their lives and families to nonstop scrutiny and vicious attacks?

Assuming Trump runs, he might pick former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo as his running mate.[3]. Philosophically they seem to be in tune; and Pompeo might be a positive influence on Trump—at least in terms of losing weight and slimming down.  After all, having been attacked nonstop since he began running for the presidency, food can often be a psychological refuge for Trump.

Recent polling shows Trump crushing Florida’s fine Governor Ron DeSantis, who may have a very bright political future after a second Trump presidency ends.[4]  Biden’s mental acuity keeps declining—and “flat-lining”—and the scandals swirling about him may doom him before next year’s elections.  The economy alone may sink his little ship.[5]  The fate of our great country may turn on these developments, and how we and our friends and enemies respond to them.[6]

There Is Nothing Progressive About A Democrat

18 08 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

As I wrote years ago, there is nothing “progressive” about a Democrat. It is a term they have used, abused and co-opted in an attempt to mask, obscure and hide their true identities, evil intentions and deeds. When I left the U.S. Senate, I went a step farther to conclude that the Democrats are “evil” but smart, while the Republicans are “Neanderthals” and dumb. I have never changed that opinion, and have been an Independent ever since.[2]

I began as a Democrat, but can’t conceive of ever voting for one again. They have moved so far to the Left as to be almost totally unrecognizable. They are un-American fascists, unbridled anarchists, unapologetic racists, blatant anti-Semites and everything else that is evil. Stated bluntly and succinctly, they are the party that Barack Obama created, and they are a mirror image of him. Any doubts, read his book, “Dreams from My Father.”[3]

Their mission has been to destroy the opposition, which is the goal of every fascist, authoritarian regime. Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin and Mao Tse-tung were masters at it, and killed millions of human beings in the process.[4] The Democrats came after Richard Nixon, and used Sam Giancana and the Chicago mob to fix the elections in Chicago and West Virginia.

When Nixon won the presidency years later, they used Watergate to destroy him. Then, they targeted Ronald Reagan with “Iran Contra,” even though Reagan had survived an assassination attempt, and had brought down the “Evil Empire” of the Soviet Union without a shot being fired.[5]

Next, their target was Donald Trump, who was a flamboyant businessman and had the audacity to challenge them and the so-called Washington “elite” or “establishment,” and their imbedded bureaucracy at all levels of government that had been carefully nurtured over the decades. Their efforts to destroy him have been brutal and relentless, beginning the day that he and his wife Melania came down the escalator at Trump Tower in New York City and announced his candidacy.

After rigging elections across the country and installing the mentally-challenged Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in the presidency—who have been destroying America and putting it at the mercy of our enemies, principally China and Russia—they are hell-bent in stopping Trump from ever challenging them again. The raid on his home at Mar-a-Lago in Florida by rogue, Gestapo-like FBI agents is their latest attempt to destroy him.

Undoubtedly authorized by Biden and his Obama-laden advisors, it was carried out by the Attorney General Merrick Garland, whose quest for a seat on our Supreme Court had been denied. FBI Director Christopher Wray approved the raid, as did a Florida Magistrate Bruce Reinhart who had helped Jeffrey Epstein’s abusers when he was in the private practice of law.

If the Democrats could “kill” Trump, they would. He is hated; and his very presence constitutes a threat to their control of the United States and the American people. Leave aside the fact that our enemies want to destroy us, the Democrats are hell-bent on destroying him and everything he and his supporters stand for. Like Reagan before him, he is the polar opposite of them, which is why he is hated like Abraham Lincoln was[6]. Are there reasonable rank-and-file Democrats who are appalled by what is happening?  Sure there are, but they do not control the party—or perhaps even influence it today.

Is America Doomed By Its Enemies, Foreign And Domestic?

15 08 2022

If the despicable Democrats are not destroyed in November’s elections, and if their multi-year efforts against our great President Donald Trump are successful, the United States may be destroyed and will not rise again.  They are like vermin and vicious animals, which must be put down and eradicated; and yes, lots of us began as Democrats.[2]

Aside from George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and Ronald Reagan—who the evil Left despises, maligns and tried to destroy—Donald Trump may be our most courageous President.  If he goes, America goes with him, and is finished.  Brain Dead Joe Biden, his traitorous Democrats, the DOJ and the FBI continue to attack him, by raiding his home in Florida, Mar-a-Lago, and ascribing criminality to him.[3]

They have tried to destroy him since he and our lovely First Lady Melania came down the escalator at Trump Tower in New York City, when their quest for the presidency began.  It has been a nonstop assault on his family and him, and those who have supported him.  This is evil personified, and no different than the evil perpetrated by America’s enemies, who seek to destroy all of us.[4]

The Unhinged Left Is America’s Enemy

9 07 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

When I left the United States Senate, I concluded that the Democrats were “evil” but smart, while the Republicans were “Neanderthals” and dumb.[2]  I have never changed that opinion.  Quite to the contrary, I believe it today more fervently than ever; and I am not alone.[3].  And yes too, I began as a Democrat but doubt that I will vote for one ever again.

Where does one begin to chronicle the Left’s certifiable madness and hatred of the America that so many of us love?  Perhaps with their devout support of Infanticide.[4]  Or with the enabling of young Americans to switch genders; or with “gender fluidity”—the ability to switch back and forth, with the help of drugs.  Or perhaps with easy access to other life-changing drugs that can kill, such as Fentanyl, which are sometimes disguised as other drugs when they enter our country.[5]

Or with opening our borders so that all types of criminals—including human traffickers, members of the drug cartels, and outright killers—can come here; or by never incarcerating them, even if they commit all types of crimes.  Or by releasing those who do.

It’s as if the Gates of Hell have been opened wide, and everything that is evil and Godless has been released on America.  Perhaps it began when China sent its deadly Coronavirus to us, which has hurt so many: physically, psychologically and economically.  It is mutating now; and other strains or variants are emerging, and will show up as monkeypox and by other names.

Tragically, America’s domestic enemies begin with Joe Biden, Barack Obama and the Clintons.  Each is pure evil, personified.[6]  Our enemies abroad know that, and seem to be seizing every opportunity that presents itself.  From Vladimir Putin’s butchery in Ukraine, to Xi Jinping’s efforts to destroy the U.S. economy and weaken the American people, our enemies are not resting until we are prostrate.

They are trying to do to America what Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush did to the former Soviet Union: destroy us.[7]  In a sense, they make no bones about it, at least since Biden became President.  The gloves are off—the game is on.  The stakes are the future of the world.  They couldn’t be higher. Wake up Americans.  Your future and that of your children and their children are at stake.  Our enemies are playing for keeps.  If we were in their shoes, with Biden in the White House, we would be too.[8]

Lastly, Biden is not our President and never will be.  He is a caricature of what a real man is supposed to be, who has been foisted on us by the evil Democrats and Left.  He is a imposter who is occupying our White House and making a mockery of it.  On the global stage, he is a pathetic buffoon at a pivotal moment in history.  And Kamala Harris may be even worse, if that’s humanly possible.[9]

Will The Coronavirus’ Mutations Cripple America When It Is Becoming Clear To The World That Joe Biden Is Not Fit To Serve As President?

26 07 2021

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

There is little question—at least on the part of our enemies—that Joe Biden is not fit to serve as our President. As one female wag from Los Angeles has noted:

Watching the Dems twist themselves into knots pretending Joe isn’t practically brain dead would be entertaining if it wasn’t so dangerous for the country.[2]

China unleashed the deadly Coronavirus on the world—either inadvertently or as a bioweapon—and it has been reaping enormous benefits ever since. The United States is fractured politically; and China’s communist rulers expect to be the dominant force in the world by the end of this decade.[3]

Indeed, former White House physician to Presidents Obama and Trump, Ronny Jackson, has tweeted:

Something is SERIOUSLY wrong with Biden – and it’s only going to get WORSE! [4]

All of this is occurring as the Coronavirus’ “Delta variant” mutation is producing havoc in the United States; and more Americans are refusing to be vaccinated.[5] And Willie Brown’s ho Kamala stands in the wings, waiting to take over.

China’s economy was languishing/faltering before it unleashed the Coronavirus. Its effects, and the election of Creepy Joe and Heel’s-up Harris, has given Xi Jinping “check,” as he and China’s other leaders move to “check-mate.”

If Biden is forced out, and Harris takes over, may Heaven help us.

The Democrats are in the process of subjugating their opponents, with the help of our media—as George Orwell predicted in his prescient “Animal Farm.”[6] At some point, China may make significant strategic moves . . . or its leaders may decide to sit back and let the West really fall apart first.

Under Ronald Reagan, the United States won the Cold War, as the Soviet Union collapsed without a shot being fired. China may be hoping for a similar result.

When Will Barack Obama’s Trial For Sedition Begin?

15 11 2019

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

Perhaps an even more important and obvious question is when will Barack Obama go to prison—at the very least—for his many crimes including treason, which is punishable by death?[2]

He is an un-American racist and anti-Semite, who has done more damage to our great nation than any other president.[3]  Most egregious is that he is responsible for the efforts to destroy the candidacy and then the presidency of Donald Trump, which continue to this day in the form of farcical impeachment proceedings on Capitol Hill.

Until Obama is brought to justice, no American should believe in our system of justice again.  It is a joke, and nonexistent.[4]  The Clintons—Bill and Hillary—proved that in spades as they scoffed at the system, and effectively ignored it.[5]  And yes, lots of us began as Democrats but will never vote for one again.

Having brought down Richard Nixon’s presidency, America’s Left—in the form of the Democratic Party and their so-called “mainstream media” cohorts—tried desperately to destroy the presidency of Ronald Reagan as a result of Iran Contra hearings and investigations.  Now they have moved on to their third GOP president, Trump.

Having produced nothing as a result of Robert Mueller’s extensive investigations[6], they have shifted their avenues of attack to one issue after another, hoping desperately to destroy the Trump presidency—or at least wound it fatally before next year’s elections.

They are the “Pigs” that George Orwell wrote about in his prescient Animal Farm, where all of the animals were equal until the “Pigs” accreted power and control, and reigned supreme, and were masters over—and subjugated—the other animals.[7]  They must be stopped in their tracks and destroyed, like Abraham Lincoln ended the lives and efforts of those who would have torn asunder our great nation and left it in ruins.

We are in a battle for the “soul” of America, which will determine whether it will survive or not.  The stakes are every bit as high as those facing Lincoln, and his two key generals Ulysses S. Grant and William Tecumseh Sherman.  Lincoln went through lots of military commanders until he found the right two; and the three of them saved our nation from certain destruction.[8]

The Chicken-Hearted Neanderthals In The GOP

14 06 2019

 By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

In an article entitled “Russiagate Is No Watergate,” Pat Buchanan—an adviser to Presidents Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and Gerald Ford, and a former GOP presidential aspirant himself—has written:

“History is repeating itself, and with a vengeance,” John Dean told the judiciary committee, drawing a parallel between Watergate, which brought down Richard Nixon, and “Russiagate” which has bedeviled Donald Trump.

But what strikes this veteran of Nixon’s White House is not the similarities but the stark differences.

Watergate began with an actual crime, a midnight break-in at the offices of the DNC in June 1972 to wiretap phones and filch files, followed by a cover-up that spread into the inner circles of the White House.

Three years after FBI Director James Comey began the investigation of Trump, however, the final report of his successor, Robert Mueller, found there had been no conspiracy, no collusion and no underlying crime.

How can Trump be guilty of covering up a crime the special counsel says he did not commit?

And the balance of power today in D.C. is not as lopsided as it was in 1973-1974.

During Watergate, Nixon had little support in a city where the elites, the press, the Democratic Congress and the liberal bureaucracy labored in earnest to destroy him. Nixon had few of what Pat Moynihan called “second and third echelons of advocacy.”

Contrast this with Trump, a massive presence on social media, whose tweets, daily interactions with the national press and rallies keep his enemies constantly responding to his attacks rather than making their case.

Trump interrupts their storytelling. And behind Trump is a host of defenders at Fox News and some of the top radio talk show hosts in America.

There are pro-Trump websites that did not exist in Nixon’s time, home to populist and conservative columnists and commentators full of fight.

Leftists may still dominate mainstream media. But their unconcealed hatred of Trump and the one-sided character of their coverage has cost them much of the credibility they had half a century ago.

The media are seen as militant partisans masquerading as journalists.

Consider the respective calendars.

Two years after the Watergate break-in, Nixon was near the end, about to be impeached by the House with conviction possible in the Senate.

Three years into Russiagate, 3 in 4 House Democrats do not want their caucus to take up impeachment. Many of these Democrats, especially moderates from swing districts, do not want to cast a vote to either bring down or exonerate the president.

Assume the House did take up impeachment. Would all the Democrats vote aye? Does anyone think a Republican Senate would deliver the needed 20 votes to provide a two-thirds majority to convict and remove him?

For a Republican Senate to split asunder and vote to expel its own Republican president who is supported by the vast majority of the party would be suicidal. It could cost the GOP both houses of Congress and the White House in 2020. Why would Republicans not prefer to unite and fight to the end, just as Senate Democrats did during the Clinton impeachment?

Trump’s support in the Republican caucus in the Senate today is rock solid. Speaker Nancy Pelosi is herself opposed to impeachment hearings in the House, considering them ruinous to her party’s hopes of maintaining control in 2020.

When Dean went before the Watergate committee of Sen. Sam Ervin in 1973, all five days of his testimony were carried live on ABC, CBS and NBC.

When Dean appeared Monday, the three cable news networks swiftly dropped coverage of the judiciary committee hearings to report on a helicopter crash in mid-Manhattan. Dean’s testimony could be seen on C-SPAN3.

Much of America is bored by the repetitive, nonstop media attacks on Trump, and look on the back-and-forth between left and right not as a “constitutional crisis” but as a savage battle between parties and partisans.

The impeachers who seek to bring down Trump face other problems.

Now that Mueller has spent two years and found no evidence of a Trump-Putin conspiracy to hack the emails of the DNC and Clinton campaign, questions have arisen as to what the evidence was that caused the FBI to launch its unprecedented investigation of a presidential campaign and a newly elected president.

Did an anti-Trump cabal at the apex of the FBI and U.S. security agencies work with foreign intelligence, including former British spy Christopher Steele, to destroy Trump?

The political dynamic of Trump’s taunts and defiance of the demands of committee chairs in a Democratic House, and the clamor for impeachment from the Democratic and media left are certain to produce more calls for hearings.

But if the impeachment hearings come, they will be seen for what they are: An attempted coup to overthrow a president by the losers of 2016 who are fearful they could lose again in 2020 and be out of power for four more years.

Russiagate is not Watergate, but there is this similarity:

Nixon and Trump are both the objects of a truly great hatred.[2]

Some of us lived through Watergate, as Pat Buchanan did.  He was working in the Nixon White House, while I was leaving Capitol Hill and the U.S. Senate for the private practice of law in downtown Washington, D.C.   Today, as in the case of Nixon, the chicken-hearted Neanderthals in the GOP may be Donald Trump’s Achilles’ heel.[3]

The un-American, traitorous, racist, anti-Semite Barack Obama was and is hated by vast swaths of the American people; and he should be in prison today—at the very least—for trying to destroy the Trump candidacy and then presidency.[4]  But none of his true haters tried to destroy either Obama or his presidency.

Indeed, he beat the now-Massachusetts-to-Utah carpetbagger Mitt Romney and his running mate, the RINO Paul Ryan, fair and square.  This may among the reasons why both have opposed President Trump at essentially every juncture. He did what neither of these historical losers could ever do: WIN.  They will be ciphers in American history, if that much.  Like Abraham Lincoln before him, Trump will not be.[5]

Will the future yield “Watergate II,” and will the Trump presidency be destroyed just like the Nixon presidency was?  Traitors like John Dean are being given the time of day; the so-called “mainstream media” is on the warpath again, bent on bringing down this presidency too.  And the spineless, feckless GOP may not support Donald Trump in the final analysis.

But unlike Nixon, Trump has an “army” of true believers, which spans this great nation, except for the bastions of Leftists on our East Coast and “Left coast.”  And as long as our President’s health remains excellent, it is likely that he and his presidency will survive and truly flourish through his second term in office—which will end in January of 2025.

Lots of us certainly hope and pray that this is so.  And yes, many of us began as Democrats, but will never vote for one again—especially in light of the mental midgets of the far-Left who are running against our President.[6]
