    Come on Karl. Get with the program. Was it Monday? Or was it November 19th? Not even such a celebrious cunning linguist as you can have it both ways. Could this possibly be the expression of late term sequelae related to being forced to show your face and real name on the local social media?

  • There are a LOT of things being overlooked Carl, and a LOT of OPINIONS being accepted as fact. Truth in reporting does not matter any more since headlines spun in the correct fashion will get THEIR truth across to a vast number of folk who don't care to know the TRUTH.

    It was overlooked for several reasons that I can think of. I am sure there are a hundred more. The president at that time could do little to no wrong and many did not want to commit our forces to hard, yet Trump remove a small contingency from harm and it is the worst act ever.

    Not sure when, if ever, the liberal minions will see the discrepancies in their leaders actions, words and the press' reporting of them.

  • Let me change the word "Liberal" to Democrats. It more accurately describes to leadership.

  • Thanks for the comments Steve. We have been indoctrinated by the propaganda of the main-stream media. They are the PR arm of the despotic Democratic Party. There are no longer journalists in the main-stream media, only activists. The word journalist should be stricken from the lexicon and cast on the heap of archaic words. The main-stream media is solely and totally activists for the Democratic Party. The have long since not distinguished between news and commentary. The right leaning media, on the other hand, at least tries to delineate between news and commentary. The main-stream media espouses an ideology while the conservative media does not. They espouse following the Constitution.

    I am constantly amazed at the wisdom of our Founding Fathers. Many of the pundits today hold themselves to have greater wisdom than the founders. I think not. History will remember them for only minutes in historical time.

    An example, George Washington, re political parties.

    "they serve to organize factions, to put into place of the delegated will of the Nation the will of the Party...Let me warn you in the most solemn manner against the baneful effects of the spirit of party. It is important that those entrusted with its administration confine themselves with-in their respective constitutional spheres, avoiding the exercise of the powers of one department any encroachment upon another. The spirit of encroachment tends to consolidate the powers of all departments in one, and thus to create a real despotism." Further by admonishing that, "Modifications of the constitutional powers....be corrected in the way the Constitution designates, but let no changes be by usurpations; for through this, in one instance, may be the instrument of good, it is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed."

    This is so prophetic! How many times in the last few years have we seen the Constitution amended by fiat?

    What amendments to the constitution are you talking about other than the 13th, 14th and 16th amendments? Our forefathers wrote the Constitution in such a way as to protect it from being destroyed. Any thing that is contrary to or inconsistent with it and the laws of the United States is Null and Void, there by protection our Constitution forever. Not even an International Treaty can suspend the constitution or do away with it. Only the Habeas corpus can be suspended, not the constitution (Unless we are defeated by a foreign power). The constitution is here to stay! Laws may change, but not the constitution, unless rights are added to it.
