OCS: WHAT’S HAPPENING?

Many a truth is spoken in jest -- or captured by an editorial cartoonist...

China-jest

Biden lacks the balls to cut off Chinese Travel…

China, the home of most flu viruses, is now reporting a new unknown respiratory disease that presents a threat to Americans whose immune systems were weakened by the Covid-19 virus, one of its variants, or the various Covid vaccines that were not vaccines and mostly ineffective. Yet, the Biden Administration refuses to halt travel to the United States or close the border to potential disease carriers.

Antony Blinken, a traitor to two countries…

Secretary of State Antony Blinken, the butt-boy of Barack Obama has sold his country out to Iran, even to the point of facilitating the hiring of Iranian operatives for sensitive government positions. Likewise, Blinken appears to be doing Iran’s bidding as he attempts to curtail Israel’s attacks on Hamas, an Iranian proxy.

Alejandro Mayorkas, another traitor… 

Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas has illegally violated federal immigration law as he facilitates an unchecked invasion of the United States by wave after wave of unvetted illegal aliens, including terrorists, criminals, drug dealers, and biological warfare vectors. This is a clear and present danger to the safety and security of the United States and a potential change agent for the collapse of our social welfare system.

Most of the pro-Iran and anti-Israel rhetoric started with Obama...

Ben Rhodes, the Jewish (?) former Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategic Communications and Speechwriting under President Barack Obama, was so slavishly anti-Israel and devoted to anti-Semite Obama, that his nickname in the White House was "Hamas."

It doesn’t matter if you are guilty…

Almost everybody agrees that Representative George Santos (R-NY) is a despicable, loathsome, fraud, liar, and cheat, and deserves to be expelled from his seat in Congress. However, the House of Representatives has just violated long-established norms that required an expulsion to follow a court finding of guilt. While the House has an unquestioned absolute power to expel any member at any time for any reason, but has long been constrained by precedent against doing so on the basis of the House’s own conclusions of wrongdoing.

Few doubt that George Santos acted unethically and dishonestly in a variety of ways, some of them plainly criminal, and there are ample precedents for censuring him and stripping him of privileges such as committee assignments; but so did Ilhan Omar (D-MN) who has a number of ethical issues involving allegations of potential immigration fraud, misuse of funds, tax evasion, perjury, and virulent anti-Semitism. 

How stupid are the Republicans to expel one of their dodgiest members without demanding similar treatment for fire alarm guy Jamal Bowman or other democrat keptocrats? Why would the GOP throw away a vote unilaterally. Where is due process?

The Congressional landscape with respect to investigations, committee behavior, destruction of evidence, secret communications, impeachments, and expulsions, and now can be weaponized for partisan political purposes once a political party achieves an unbreakable majority. This does not bode well for the American people now that Representatives represent themselves, their party, and their special interests over their constituency that elected them.

And then there is Trump…

A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit has ruled that a president does not have broad assertions of presidential immunity to shield them from liability in lawsuits. Basically, the judges ruled that actions Trump took in the run-up to the January 6 riot were not part of his official duties as president and thus, the president has no claim of immunity. The example used involves a president running for a second term who speaks at a rally funded by his reelection campaign or attends a private fundraiser – ruling that the president, under those conditions, is not executing the official duties of the presidency and thus deserves no immunity. Since most politicians are running for reelection from their first day in office, this presents a disturbing precedent.

Bottom line…

We can't trust the experts. We can't trust the media. We can't trust the government. So many compromised and willing to sell out their nation and humanity.

We are so screwed.
