SORROW; 01/10/2021

Never in the history of our great Nation  has there been a domestic mob attempt to thwart the constitutional working of our government. Acting on behalf of President Trump, beneficiary of the greatest Cult of Personality the world has seen since Mao Tse Tung, encouraged by the President, his eldest son, and an appalling number of members of Congress anxious to wrap themselves in the accolades of the mob, Americans stormed the Capitol in an effort to prevent the members of the House and Senate from confirming the victory of Joe Biden over President Trump. They forced their way into the Capitol, causing the members of Congress to fell to safety. They ransacked that sacred place, destroying and stealing at will. Five persons died in the attack, including one Capitol policeman, and many others were injured.

Fortunately they failed in their attempt to prevent the transfer of power contemplated by the Constitution and successfully accomplished since 1797. Joe Biden will soon be the 46th President of the United States. He is entitled to the same respect and support that we have given in the pas to to a president for whom we did not vote. That is the American way.

STAY TUNED

TAKE AWAYS ONE WEEK AFTER; 11/20/2020

Here is what is I believe the takeaways are from the Election and aftermath:  Former Vice-President Joe Biden will be the 46th President of the United States. His margins in each of the contested states are statistically small but numerically large. Most, if not all, of the margins are more than challenges have ever overturned.… Continue Reading

DECISION 2020; 11/01/1010

In just over 48 hours, we should be getting the early, east coast returns. Here is what I  am particularly paying attention to:  FLORIDA.  President Trump practically has to win Florida in order to have any chance of winning re-election. The latest polls give Mr. Biden a slight edge but within the margin of error.… Continue Reading

    Fred
    I hope your prediction is wrong. I agree that it’s going to be close, and too close to predict. At this point, we can only pray that the electoral votes in key states will move in Trump’s favor and give him a slight victory. I think he can pull out Pennsylvania and Florida and a couple of surprises. My only consolation is that God has a plan.

    • Fred Henneke says:

      Bob – it was much closer than expected but the margins in the remaining 4 states are too large to overcome. And he needs all 4 to win. Sad part is that the US remains more tribally divided than ever. Solutions to our problems will never come about as long as we shout past each other instead of talking. Thanks for your comment.

ONE WEEK TO GO; 10/27/2020

Topics of interest as we enter the last week before Election Day:  The Supreme Court. Our Constitution gives the President the authority to appoint justices to the Supreme Court subject to the advice and consent of the United State Senate. Therefore, President Trump’s action in appointing Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court was not… Continue Reading

24 DAYS AND A WAKE-UP, MAYBE; 10/09/2020

Hopefully, by midnight 24 days from now, or first thing the next morning for those who can’t stay up for the final returns, we will know who will be the next president. Certainly we will know if there has been a tsunami landslide for one of the candidates (most likely Mr. Biden). If it is… Continue Reading

A TAXING DEBATE; 10/01/2020

If you coulda sold tickets and popcorn, you could have retired the national debt. What a spectacular debacle. A mud fight between the school bully and the book worm. WWE couldn’t hold a candle to the disgraceful event put on Tuesday night. They should have worn tights. Not the finest moment in American political history.… Continue Reading

RIP, RBG; 09/27/2020

First of all, sincere thanks and admiration to departed Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg. For decades, through her skill as an advocate, her teaching and mentoring, and her service on the Supreme Court, she helped to bring about change in American life. Small in stature but huge in intellect and passion, the “notorious RBG” dedicated her… Continue Reading

    Great analysis of the current state of affairs in the U.S.! However, I believe you forgot Sarah Palin (running mate to John McCain).

PORTLAND; 08/03/2020

Our Constitution, which I revere, guarantees us the right to peacefully assemble and to petition the government for redress of our grievances. Fundamental, essential rights fought for during the Revolution and honored ever since. Nowhere in the Constitution is there a right to riot and destroy public or private property. That constitutes criminal behavior and… Continue Reading

    Regardless, it appears that the various mayors and governors were doing almost nothing to stop looters and rioters. So far as I know, none called in their state guards. At least one state so severely restricted their police response that it became dangerous for police to enter the area. I agree calling in the “troops” was a “lawn orda” reaction but considering that city and state officials did nothing but tsk about looting, and bow down to the 1% of the 13%, I do not think there was much choice.

    I have read somewhere similar point of view and I totally agree with what you said. However, there are also some other things could be mentioned on this topic, but overall I like what you described.
