As a huge grunge rock fan and amateur guitarist, I am saddened by the news of Soundgarden front man Chris Cornell’s passing Wednesday, possibly from suicide. Strangely, he and the recently reunited Soundgarden had just played a show in Detroit.
While not a fan of Cornell’s far-left activism, I am a big fan of Soundgarden and Cornell the artist. He was a powerful vocalist for a band known for its heavy sound, creativity and unique arrangements. These all combined to make them an original, one-of-a-kind band. With his passing the grunge era has lost it’s four greatest vocalists and front men: he along with Kurt Cobain, Scott Weiland and Layne Staley defined the era for me and changed music forever.
President Trump has certainly not helped himself with his tweets, contradicting statements and shoot-from-the-hip approach (firing Comey?). However, the attacks on him from the far-left, the left-wing media and even some Republicans is so over-the-top it defies description. Treasonous comes close to describing their behavior, not his. Cutting through the crap, here are some facts.
Suggesting to former FBI director Comey that he would like General Flynn to not be investigated or prosecuted further doesn’t come close to obstruction of justice. If it did, Comey was obligated BY LAW to immediately contact the Justice Department that a possible violation had taken place. If he did not (as is apparent) Comey himself is guilty of a felony. Furthermore, by dismissing Comey, Trump is not guilty of obstruction even if it was over the Russian investigation, as the director does not head up an investigation and it will continue. Calls for impeachment on this basis are stupid, dishonest or both. And oh, by the way, what did Obama do when he publicly proclaimed Hillary Clinton’s innocence before the FBI or Justice weighed in?
Next, regarding Trump sharing intelligence with Russia, that is his right to do even if it is misguided. And oh, it is something Obama did repeatedly. And now we are getting a special prosecutor to look into the Russian ties, so our side caved. Maybe it’s a good thing for transparency sake but it is unnecessary and unprecedented. In eight years of non-stop Obama corruption not one was appointed during that time. Not for fast and furious, DOJ spying, the IRS disgrace, Benghazi or Hillary Clinton.
The real scandal here is the corruption of the media and within the government bureaucracy. Crimes are being committed daily by anti-Trump bureaucrats, and they need to be rooted out and prosecuted. All the sources for these stories are unnamed leakers. If this had happened to Obama the media would be have a hissyfit and calling it all “racist!” The deep state bureaucracy of government agencies appears to be attempting to take down a duly elected president in some kind of illegal coup. The left plays very dirty, and it is way past time for Trump, his supporters, and those on the right who are infuriated by these illegal, undemocratic and unconstitutional actions to fight back just as hard. The GOP controls every branch of the government but it appears that the Democrats are running things…it is an outrage! Comey has notes on Trump? Supoena all his notes, especially those on Obama and Clinton. They are government property, not his. Reopen investigations into all of the Obama scandals. That will get their attention.
Washington is a den of thieves, whores, rats and vipers. I thought Trump would be better prepared for political hardball, but hopefully he will learn. It is obvious that the left and even some who are supposed to be on our side are out to destroy his presidency, and they will stop at nothing to accomplish it.
Obstruction of justice for thee but not for me:
Trump shared intel, so what?
And the most outrageous story, a so-called “conservative” want to enact the 25th Amendment to remove Trump:
It is so bad, even the riot police are leaving. Socialism…
Socialism destroys everything it touches. The future of America under the Democrat Party:
Funny that the Dims want to make her the next big thing, given that her resume isn’t just paper thin, it is non-existent.
The firing was justified and long overdue. Unfortunately Trump has made a mess of it with his stupid tweets, bad messaging, and suggesting he may have recorded conversations. Very un-presidential.
The continued coarsening of America:
Crossings are down, apprehensions are up, which the WaPo grudgingly admits to but sees as “bad”. And so far there isn’t even a wall. Put in simple economic terms, something that Leftists cannot comprehend: people respond to incentives.
If you tell an illegal they will be arrested and deported, they are far less likely to hand over their life savings to a coyote (smuggler) to get in the US.
Now, at the opposite end of the spectrum, murders are out of control in Baltimore after the police were basically ordered to stand down or be labeled “racist” by the majority black population. So what happened? Crime is way up. And who suffers? Law-abiding blacks. I wonder if BLM cares? Baltimore is reaping what it has sown.
