Voter Fraud

A real concern for the 2020 election for sure.

Great article from Heritage Foundation. Twenty seven states and D.C. allow this practice.

Impeachment Inquiry

Interesting as I got home last night my wonderful wife told me they were having an impeachment vote in the house. Well that gave me pause for sure. Later as I read and heard from the evil queen herself, Pelosi, I realized that nothing would come of the vote. Yes it will happen but her exact words to a reporter was “not this is just a vote on continuing the inquiry.” Not really an binding vote. I will be interesting how the new reps from Trump districts vote. They could be in a world of hurt.

If an impeachment hearing were fair, it would be a dream come true for the President. Dems would lose big time. Let’s just wait and see what happens Thursday. My prediction is they don’t vote..

Soy boys and RINO’s

It is amazing to me that the Republican party is such a bunch of sissies. Do they not realize that we elected Donald Trump to be the hammer to destroy the elites in D.C.? I did not vote for him so he could be a weak kneed bowing to to the establishment President, I expected and got a raging bull. Thank God! I did not elect a choir boy or a Pastor, I elected a President. I wanted someone to get things done. Promise me something and do it. That my friends is Donald J. Trump.

My word of advice to the elite Republicans is to get over it and support our President, otherwise I hope reasonably and angry people will vote you out of office. You ruling class have done nothing for this country except make yourself rich with empty promised and out right lies. And by the way when is the Senate going to start those deep investigations that were promised. SENATOR LYNDSEY GRAHAM and majority leader MITH MCCONNELL!!!

Bill Barr: Religious Liberty Warrior

Last week, US Attorney General William Barr gave an extraordinary speech about religious liberty at Notre Dame Law School. I have not been able to locate a transcript, and only found time to watch it this morning. Here’s a video of the entire thing. The speech itself begins at about the four-minute mark.

The AG begins by talking about the capacity for self-government, meaning not the form of administration of a liberal democracy, but the ability of individuals to master their own passions, and subject them to reason. Can we handle freedom? That, says Barr, is a question that preoccupied the Founders.

No society can exist without the capacity to restrain vice, he goes on to say. If you depend only on the government to do this, you get tyranny. (This, by the way, is what’s happening in China; many Chinese actually support the tyrannical Social Credit System, because communism destroyed civil society and social trust.) But, says Barr, licentiousness is another form of tyranny. People enslaved by their own appetites make community life impossible. (This, I would say, is what we are more endangered by in America today … and it will ultimately call forth tyranny, Chinese-style.)

Barr offers this quotation from Edmund Burke:

“Men are qualified for civil liberty, in exact proportion to their disposition to put moral chains upon their own appetites; in proportion as their love of justice is above their rapacity; in proportion as their soundness and sobriety of understanding is above their vanity and presumption; in proportion as they are more disposed to listen to the counsels of the wise and good, in preference to the flattery of knaves.”

Why is religion a public good? Because, says Barr, it “trains people to want what is good.” It helps to frame a society’s moral culture, and instills moral discipline. No secular creed has emerged that can do what religion does, he says. And by casting religion out, we are dismantling the foundation of our public morality.

“What we call ‘values’ today are nothing more than mere sentimentality, drawing on the vapor trails of Christianity,” says the AG.

Barr took the gloves off, saying that religion is not jumping to its death; it’s being pushed.

“This is not decay,” he said. “This is organized destruction.” He named secularists in academia, media, and elsewhere as figures who are not neutral at all, but have rather inculcated a kind of religiosity in their own project of destroying religion. They conduct their own inquisitions and excommunications for heresy.

Well worth the time to read and ponder.
