GOP dumps on one to get another
Goodbye “Wicked Witch of the West” (Liz Cheney from Wyoming)! Hello, “Good Witch of the North” (Elise Stefanik from New York)! Sorry, Lizzy for dropping that big bucket of water on you. Haha!
Don’t take Arizona audit seriously
The so-called “audit” of the 2020 presidential election being held in Arizona is a farce. Here is why.
I am an engineer and sometimes work as an expert witness in legal cases. Some of those legal cases involve forensic examination of debris from fires that may have been caused by electric lighting systems.
During these forensic examinations, no evidence is inspected without all the parties present in the room, and no evidence is modified in any way, such as by cleaning it, unless all parties agree to the process.
All steps in the process are documented using photography and other means. The experts conducting the examination have no financial interest in the outcome.
Now, compare this to the Arizona “audit.” Only one side is present, a partisan organization with no ballot audit experience that has been retained by Republicans in the state senate and funded through private donations from political supporters.
Some ballots are being modified in the process of the “audit,” making it impossible to determine their original condition.
The Arizona “audit” is theater and should not be taken seriously.
Do some research to find out the truth
In response to John A. Gaetani’s May 13 letter (“Trump foes have been the real liars”) blah blah blah.
You are a pundit of a false messiah claiming he is still the true president of these United States.
Without proof of any kind, you are backing a want-to-be dictator. When his own appointees to the Supreme Court denied his claims repeatedly, it should have given you at least a slight pause to rethink your position on that lie.
If you had been there at the Capitol with those insurrectionists, I would hope that you and the other warriors would be charged with treason and not with the charges set as is.
Though Joe Biden was not the best choice for me, I, like Mike Pence, believe in the Constitution of these United States. VP Pence did as he was required to do. “Go down to the Capitol building and stop that vote and I will join you there” said ex-President Trump.
That incited the actions of his foolish followers. To follow blindly is folly as Jan. 6 proves so sadly. What I saw on live TV is proof.
News channels blah blah blah. Ignorance has replaced common sense for most Americans.
The truth is in research. The shepherd has led his flock to the slaughter figuratively.
Cuomo, Fauci make mockery of science
What happened to “Follow the science” the unyielding mantra chanted like an incantation for the past year.
I guess Andrew Cuomo being the top-notch disease expert that he is and Anthony Fauci the all-over-the-place expert, both must know more “science” than the CDC. Both of these people have been abject failures in the handling of this.
What happened to “Follow the science?” We have gone from at best doubtful “science” about the worth of cloth face diapers now to a Cult of the Mask, where science apparently doesn’t matter anymore, and maybe it never did initially. We will all continue to bow down before the Emperor Cuomo and his Court Jester Anthony Fauci. Wear those masks you peasants!
Are you happy you elected Biden now?
Gasoline is up $1 a gallon. President Trump made us energy independent. The Middle East is on fire. President Trump brought five Muslim countries into a peace agreement with Israel. The southern border is being overrun by undocumented immigrants. Under President Trump, our border was secure and a system was set up for refugees seeking asylum. Prices for food are skyrocketing. Inflation was running half of what it is now. And we just had a main oil pipeline hacked.
The United States was respected around the world. Boy, am I glad you Democrats elected Joe Biden.
