The Man of the Year is marching in Hong Kong

leave a comment »

We just learned who Time has chosen as person of the year and it’s a teenager talking about climate change.   I’m not going to take shots at a young girl, but she is the wrong person for such a recognition.

Over in Hong Kong, people are literally standing up for freedom.  I agree with Ben Domenech

In defiance of the most powerful authoritarian regime in the modern world, the protester in Hong Kong has stood against the authority of Red China with courage and dedication.

They have not bowed to the brutality of the police, who have murdered, raped, and abused them. They have not run from the tear gas or the hoses. They have refused to back down. And because of that, their message has been heard.

It is a protest that cuts across the lines of age and class. While the protesters are younger, they are supported by their parents’ generation, which feels guilt over not asserting themselves earlier. So their mantra is: Be water.

Hong Kong has enjoyed freedoms never present in mainland China. They see those freedoms slipping away. And rather than bow to that inexorable betrayal, the thuggish assertion of the murderous state, they stood, and they fight.

There is no bigger fight. And so, the Hong Kong protester is the Person of the Year.  

It takes a lot of courage to march against a totalitarian government. Cheers for the people doing so in Hong Kong.

I would also mention the people of Bolivia who rose against a corrupt leftist thug who tried to steal an election and Mexican journalists killed covering the news south of the border.

Americans understand impeachment, but the Democrats don’t

leave a comment »

On the day that Democrats put two articles of impeachment on the table, we see this polling data: the latest Quinnipiac survey shows more than half of voters are now saying Trump shouldn’t be removed from office.

Why is that?   Why are Americans moving against impeachment?

First, the articles are so weak, as we see in this New York Post editorial:   

He offers one on “abuse of power,” which covers all the efforts to get Ukraine to investigate 1) 2016 meddling and 2) the company that hired Hunter Biden. 

But it doesn’t explain how Trump “compromised the national security of the United States and undermined the integrity of the United States democratic process” or solicited interference in the 2020 election.    

Schiff contends Trump wanted “sham investigations” from Ukraine. 

But the inquiry produced not a single person or document suggesting Trump wanted Ukraine to frame his potential 2020 rival.

Nadler’s other article is for “obstruction of Congress,” centering on the White House’s refusal to cooperate with House hearings, ordering various officials not to testify.

Yet the legislative and executive branches fight all the time over compelling such testimony: It’s up to the judicial branch to resolve each battle — but House Democrats declined to go to court this time.

That’s likely why Nadler didn’t even go for an “obstruction of justice” article — one of the main counts in both the Nixon and Clinton impeachments.

A weak case and super partisan, to say the least.

Americans understand the reason for the impeachment clause.  It is there for those most unusual times in history when a president has engaged in high crimes and misdemeanors.

Abuse of power?  Every President from Washington to Trump would have been nailed on that one.

Obstruction of Congress?  What a joke!  Where were these Democrats when President Obama did not cooperate with Congress?

So the public sees through all this and yells “where is the beef?”   There ain’t no beef, and that’s why this process is a disgrace.
