An Epidemic Of Biden

“Earlier today Joe Biden raised some eyebrows when he said ‘no amendment to the constitution is absolute.’ The first ten amendments to the constitution are commonly known as ‘The Bill of Rights.’ The occupant of the oval office, and head of the executive branch, saying the Bill of Rights is not absolute, should be challenged immediately to qualify that statement.” (Joe Biden Said The Bill of Rights is NOT “Absolute”)

Doddering Joe is absolutely correct for once. There are provisions for altering the Constitution. Unfortunately for Biden and the totalitarian minded Democrats, none of them include change by executive fiat. In these days of mob rule and dictatorial decree, however,  that hardly seems to matter. It is difficult to refrain from attributing nefarious motives to the never-ending assaults on freedom and common sense by the Party of the Holy Red Jackass. After all, “cui bono,” as the Romans would say–“to whom is it a benefit?”.  And the answer never seems to include the average tax-paying American citizen. Unless said citizen happens to be black, female, transgendered, communistic, inclined to pederasty, criminality, or knee-jerk anti-Americanism–the braying constituency of the modern Democrat.

Since an armed citizenry that disagrees with Democrats on nearly every issue is not conducive to the implementation of Marxism, the dismemberment of the Second Amendment has always been high on the to-do list of America’s true domestic enemies.

Branco 4921The Democrats’ obsession with seizing Americans’ guns while tolerating violent crime in the name of “equity” should have made it clear that safety wasn’t their driving consideration. President Joe Biden just made it obvious. In announcing a series of “commonsense” [sic] executive measures, and the nomination of a former ATF agent turned gun-grabbing activist on Thursday, the White House said they were meant to address a “gun violence public health epidemic.” This comes after a year of unprecedented government infringement on civil rights in the name of public health in the form of coronavirus lockdowns and restrictions.  Of course, Democrat governors and public officials were exempt from those, as were people celebrating the Biden-Harris election, or rioting in the name of fighting another “public health epidemic,” racism. (Nebojsa Malic)

America’s real public health epidemic is the continuing election of Democrats to public office by fair means or foul–usually the latter.  After all, the Jackasses have killed as many people over the years as any mass shooter. And most of their victims weren’t even born.

Take Me Away From The Ballgame

The Babe

“Baseball is already losing tremendous numbers of fans, and now they leave Atlanta with their All-Star Game because they are afraid of the Radical Left Democrats who do not want voter I.D., which is desperately needed, to have anything to do with our elections. Boycott baseball and all of the woke companies that are interfering with Free and Fair Elections. Are you listening Coke, Delta, and all!” — Donald Trump

Major League Baseball is protesting a democratically passed Georgia voting law while bolstering ties with a Communist Party-backed Chinese company that cracked down on an NBA executive who supported the pro-democracy movement in Hong Kong.” — Michael Ruiz | Fox News

In keeping with their tradition of ruining everything they get their grubby Left hands on, the Democrats and their lily-livered corporate cohorts are turning what used to be America’s National Pastime into a platform for the advancement of an agenda with which half the country vehemently disagrees.   Now that baseball’s politically correct brain trust has moved this year’s all star game out of the recalcitrant state of Georgia, they are free to play in a place that shares the values that the enlightened executives responsible for demolishing professional sports have enthusiastically embraced. Someplace like Peking, for example.

Freezer Burned

Unhinged

“Give me six lines written by the most honorable person alive, and I shall find enough in them to condemn them to the gallows.” — Cardinal Richelieu

“We don’t let them have ideas. Why would we let them have guns?” — Joseph Stalin

“It is a quite special secret pleasure how the people around us fail to realize what is really happening to them.” — Adolf Hitler

Stalin, that wily old Democrat from bygone days, would have made a fine FBI director in the Joe Biden mis-Administration–at least until such time as he could arrange to have old Joe shipped off to an ice floe in the Bering Strait. Communists share their vodka, never their power.

Stalin may be gone, but his style of governing lives on in the black hearts of modern American  leftists. Somewhat constrained at the moment by the remnants of the founding document they are disemboweling, Democrats are nonetheless rapidly turning the federal police into a homegrown version of the Soviet NKVD.

Across the nation, FBI agents are swooping down upon conservative activists, Trump supporters, and anyone suspected of any tie to the January 6 clash at the Capitol … FBI chief Christopher Wray, who is scrambling to deliver the indictments that will please his congressional overlords, says the agency is conducting 2,000 domestic terrorism investigations. Few Americans recognize how badly the legal playing field is tilted against them.

FBIWhen FBI agents knock on their doors, many Americans won’t hesitate to open up because they assume “those who have nothing to hide have nothing to fear.” But along with Bureau procedures that are a travesty of due process, the FBI is exploiting a sweeping law that criminalizes casual comments. Federal agents have the right to lie to you and to put you in prison if you lie to them. Any citizen who makes even a single-word (“no” or “yes”) false utterance to a federal agent faces up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine…The legal fate of individuals who talk to FBI agents does not depend on what they said. Instead, it hinges on what FBI agents claim they said. (Will FBI ‘Chats’ Send Conservatives to Prison?)

The American government is now in the hands of radicals– radicals like Nancy Pelosi, the freezer burned Shrieker of the House–who don’t believe in the American government, at least not in the one as defined by the United States Constitution for the past 233 years.

Remember: Pelosi is the same sputtering octogenarian who, almost a year earlier, disgraced herself and her office when she tore up President Trump’s State of the Union speech on national television. Adults in control of their faculties simply don’t behave like Pelosi does. The fact that she’s the most powerful person in Congress and is second in line to succeed an ailing president who himself is unfit for office is enough to send thoughtful folks of every stripe straight to the liquor cabinet.

What Pelosi and the Dems believe in is what all 2-bit tyrants believe in–using the power of government to quash dissent. If they can’t send Donald Trump and his 71 million unrepentant supporters to frozen gulags in the Arctic Circle, they will defame, disenfranchise, and disarm them until such time as they can.  In the Brave New World of the Democrats, there is no room for apostates, nor is there a need any longer to disguise their intentions.

“Crime of the century” doesn’t adequately describe what Democrats have done to this country in the few short weeks since Trump was deposed. In plain sight — and with a sneering contempt for non-elitists — they have set about erasing the Western canon. They have dumped on everyone from Plato and Socrates through Montesquieu, Locke, Franklin, Washington, and Jefferson. And all of those who fought and died for the freedoms we are now so cavalierly letting our rulers strip from us. Democrats have set about replacing the Declaration of Independence with the Declaration of Dependence, the Bill of Rights with a Bill of Goods…This is not your father’s or grandfather’s Democratic Party. Today’s Democrats are tyrants in tyrant’s clothing. They are intent on robbing us of our past and stealing our future. They want to replace America with its opposite.

It is rumored that somewhere in the back country there are pockets of Democrats that still believe in truth, justice, and the American way.  There have been sightings, they say. Grainy photographs supposedly exist that show smiling Democrats waving the Stars and Stripes; but despite the determined efforts of experienced investigators, authentic images have not been located. A JFK Democrat has not been seen in the wild since 1972. Sadly, until incontrovertible evidence to the contrary is produced, we must conclude that as a species, they are now extinct.

A Garland Of Fetters

Quid Pro Joe Beats The Rap

“No more moving with caution. See Biden’s record-setting executive orders. They are as radical and Marxist as anything ever seen in America’s history.” — Wayne Allyn Root

“Biden is the emptiest of suits who is being shuffled before the camera on rare occasions as the pretend president, but anyone with a pulse can see that the man is senile, diminished beyond reach.  He is a clueless but willing tool of the Maoists who are calling the shots and are dedicated to their project, the third term of Barack Obama.  And boy, are those behind-the-scenes folks excited by their newfound political power…” — Patricia McCarthy

Hang Em HighWith the Executive Branch back in the red hands of the Democrats, the scales of justice are once again about to be manipulated by the weighty thumbs of left wing jurists and lawyerly activists salivating for conservative blood. Merrick Garland, the new Attorney General, is about as even-handed as an ambidextrous strangler, and the only consideration Trump and his supporters can expect to receive from Garland’s Department of Injustice will be the option to choose either the bullet or the rope.

Garland made his bones under former Clinton AG Janet Reno and her consigliere, Jamie Gorelick, forming a triumvirate that supervised the dispatch of at least 78 non-conforming American citizens…uh, domestic terrorists…between happy hours in 1992 and ’93.

It is rather astonishing that given Garland’s public vow to aggressively treat Trump supporters as domestic terrorists more attention isn’t given to his prominent role serving Reno. Garland was Principal Associate Deputy Attorney General to Jamie Gorelick, Reno’s Deputy AG. Reno referred to Gorelick as her Justice Department’s “chief operating officer” and Gorelick has described Garland as her “wingman.” So that would make it:

1. Janet Reno
2. Jamie Gorelick
3. Merrick Garland

This was the hierarchy of a Justice Department that burned American citizens to death in the name of fighting “domestic terror.” (Left toasts Merrick Garland, the Swamp elitist who served as Bloody Janet Reno’s henchman)

Although not the forum to rehash the relative merit of french frying dozens of his fellow Americans, unsavory and deluded as they might have been, it seems somewhat remiss of the Senate to not have asked the judge a question or two regarding the Waco barbeque. Or at least whether he prefers wet rub or dry.

Merrick Garland was confirmed to the office of Attorney General under president Joe Biden by a margin of 70-30 in the U.S. Senate on Wednesday. 20 Republican senators voted to confirm Garland – who has a history of opposing gun rights and downplaying Black Lives Matter and Antifa violence – including Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (KY) and Lindsey Graham (SC).

God love the Republicans. They have not yet begun to fight–and they never will.  Instead of a fire in the belly, the GOP has a nightlight. In a fight between a Republican and a wet paper sack, always bet on the sack. It’s no wonder the U.S. is about two spurious elections away from becoming the Soviet Union. Dos Vedanya, Uncle Sam. It was a helluva ride.

The Bait And Switch Presidency

Doddering Joe

“With age comes wisdom, but sometimes age comes alone.” ― Oscar Wilde

When the Commander-In-Chief of the armed forces publicly and in the same sentence forgets both the name of his defense secretary and the name of the famous 5-sided building in which he works, it is not unreasonable to contemplate just how long before he’s spotted shuffling aimlessly around the Rose Garden in his pajamas wondering why the gardener keeps calling him “Mr. President.”

Doddering Joe[…] There’s a reason Biden isn’t doing any press conferences and that he’s so far failed in his constitutional obligation to give Congress a state of the union address. He can’t. The latest evidence of Biden’s rapid decline came on Monday when the White House trotted him out to announce that he has nominated two women generals for 4-star combatant commands. In very short order, he forgot both the name of his Secretary of Defense, Lloyd Austin (who was standing at his side) and the name for the big, Pentagon-shaped building in which the American military command operates

I have no compassion for this man who’s always been a buffoon and is now a dangerous and demented buffoon who, while he still had some mental capacity, nevertheless allowed the greatest con ever to be run against the American people; namely, knowingly placing in the White House a man who is losing the never-more-than-marginally-competent mind he once had. In a just world, every Democrat who knew about his sagging mental abilities would be prosecuted for fraud – and the American people would get an election do-over. (Joe Biden’s mental capacity is diminishing before our eyes)

The Bait and Switch presidency of Biden/Harris–illegal in states that recognize the Deceptive Trade Practices Act–is moving into Phase II, concomitant with old Joe’s rapid descent into full blown senility. Harris, manifestly unqualified to lead anything except maybe a Barbary Coast bordello, is the ideal frontispiece for the shady communist string-pullers currently infesting the White House: female, minority, and–based on her senatorial voting record–slightly to the left of Pol Pot.

GranlundKamala Harris is a giggly radical leftist of long proven phoniness, ambition, corruption, and dishonesty. She was pinned as a phony by Democratic voters in the Iowa Caucus as recently as 2019. leading to her dropout as a presidential candidate for the 2020 election.  Now senile Joe is lining her up to be president, featuring her in a road show, and comparing her to generals? It’s a complete clown show, but it’s also worrisome. Democrats had to have known that Biden was not up to the job but hid him in the basement and from the public until they could get the power they wanted, by fair means or foul, and there’s ample reason to think it was foul. (The build-up begins: Biden plans a Kamala Harris road show)

This wasn’t the way it was drawn up last summer, but Biden’s deteriorating so quickly that his not-ready-for-prime-time replacement may have to step in before the drool dries on Joe’s chin.

Unfair Packaging

Dictator Joe

“There was never a threat to the Capitol. I tracked the “intel bulletins” when they attempted this stunt the 1st time. Fake intel justifies the military occupation, which justifies the narrative, which justifies the canceling of your rights, which justifies labeling you the enemy.” — Jordan Schachtel

***

“We used to call it freedom, but now it’s called ‘right-wing extremism’ and everyone who still believes in it, is an ‘insurrectionist.’  And the band plays on, as the Titanic sinks.” — JB Williams

***

“Altogether, if you add in Islamist connections I think about 100 members of the House of Representatives would struggle to pass a low-level background security check..but guess what? There are no security checks in Congress.” — Trevor Loudon

***

“The current American ruling class is the laughingstock of the planet.  This coterie includes among its number the Democrat party, the media/entertainment complex, Wall Street, tech oligarchs, corporatists and the professoriate.  This gaggle of buffoons are perhaps the most inept, egocentric and oblivious among all ruling classes in democratic and free nations around the globe.” — Steve McCann

***

The Federal Trade Commission should charge the party fraudulently calling itself “Democrat” with violations of the Fair Packaging and Labeling Act of 1967. As Stephen Janiszak writes in the Political Insider:

USACPIt used to be that Democrats of yesteryear would shy away from any talk of openly supporting socialism. Nonetheless, the modern day Democrats are finally beginning to embrace their newfound identityOne thing is abundantly clear, they want power and they will do whatever it takes to get that power. (Democrat Is The New Communist)

The ideals of the modern Democrat will be enacted by a partisan legislature and enforced by the barrels of a thousand partisan guns.  Pelosi, Schumer, Harris, and doddery Joe Biden are bozos, but they’re ruthless bozos, and naked force is the only sure way they can subdue the half of the country that believes government should be its servant, not its master. Until they can gut the 2nd Amendment and grab the guns owned by anyone other than federal enforcers, the Democrats will remain barricaded behind barbed wire and surrounded by private police (i.e. bodyguards) in order to safely conduct the proceedings that they blithely label “the people’s business.”

In “Surf City,” the Beach Boys sang that there were two girls for every boy. But in Swamp City, there are four cops for every Congressman…The Capitol Police, which has been in the spotlight since the Capitol Riot, has over 2,000 sworn officers. Pelosi’s private police force is the 19th largest police force in America. It’s already larger than the police forces of Atlanta, Baltimore, Denver, and Milwaukee. While Democrats advocated defunding the police, their private police force budget shot up from $375 million in 2016 to $460 million in 2020. And now it’s demanding even more money. Speaker Pelosi claimed, “It’s going to take more money to protect the Capitol in a way that enables people to come here.” (4 Cops for Every Congressman – But Pelosi Wants More)

The only people Pelosi and Schumer et al want within a hundred miles of the Capitol are, of course,  fellow travelers, illegal aliens, media sycophants, and possibly RuPaul’s drag queen retinue.  The 71 million citizens who voted for Donald Trump are decidedly not welcome—not, at least, until the Dems can enact a law authorizing Biden or more likely Kamala Harris to greet them with fleets of helicopter gunships.

The storming of the Capitol building on Jan. 6 has been cynically—and dangerously—exploited by the Left to tar all Trump voters as “domestic terrorists,” “insurrectionists,” “seditionists,” “traitors,” and, of course, “white supremacists.” H.R. 350 has the full backing of the Democratic congressional leadership, the Biden administration (including dementia Joe himself), Big Media and Big Tech.

If the bill is passed, then the United States will become a police state. The proposed law urges an internal war on “domestic extremists”—similar to the war on al Qaeda and Islamists following the 9/11 terrorist attacks. It calls for U.S. intelligence agencies, the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI to target Trump conservatives, especially those who believe the 2020 election was stolen and Biden is an illegitimate president. (Liberal Totalitarianism Democrats seek to criminalize Trump supporters)

“The enemy is within,” shrieked an unhinged Nancy Pelosi. She was right, of course, being one of them herself. The true enemies of America aren’t the people who want to defend its Constitution and values, but the leftist usurpers hell bent on subverting them.

The United State of America

For The People

President Biden on Thursday celebrated the House passing a sweeping election reform bill, saying he would sign it if it passes the Senate…The For the People Act of 2021, known as H.R. 1, passed Wednesday by a vote of 220 to 210. No Republicans joined with Democrats in approving the bill, H.R. 1. — Brooke Singman

“HR 1 is a perfect snapshot of the Democrats’ long-term, one-party-rule Soviet vision for the United States.” — Stephen Kruiser

“I don’t know Biden, I’ve met him once and I don’t agree with his policies but doesn’t mean I’m not going to give him a chance. Well now that’s over. That’s over as soon as he supported this bill which is flat out unconstitutional, and if passed would ensure Democrats win every election. Forever. As soon as he supported that I said this isn’t a guy who wants the best for America…I gave him a chance and now I know that Joe Biden is dangerous.” — Bill O’Reilly

ramirez 30521

Democrats, being the intractable Bolsheviks that they are, plan to restore harmony to these United States by transforming them into one United State–ruled in perpetuity, of course, by Democrats. This illegitimate consolidation of power is the sole purpose behind HR 1, the legislative legerdemain passed by Nancy Pelosi and her plotters in the chamber of horrors that used to be known as the “People’s House”. Like the abominably misnamed Affordable Care Act before it, this latest piece of partisan chicanery was ratified without the vote of a single Republican or the consent of the half of the country that still believes in the quaint notions of liberty and justice for all. 

democrats-communists-Let us not mince words. (1) Late last night the hardline leftists occupying the majority position, by a slim four vote margin in the House of Representatives, passed a bill on a party-line vote HR1 which fully codifies and weaponizes all opportunities for election fraud throughout the U.S. (2) Immediately after passing the election usurpation bill, the same House leaders then locked-down the capitol under the auspices of a fraudulent “threat”, and then; (3) requested a 60-day extension for the military to maintain their protective isolation behind fences and barbed wire. (Democrats Pass HR1 To Federally Weaponize Election, Then Lockdown Capitol and Ask for 60-Day Extension of Military Troops to Protect Them)

Besides the evisceration of existing election law, the bill also includes the one thing both parties usually agree upon–a provision to extract cash from taxpayers and redistribute it to politicians, this time using the guise of “matching funds”.

A major pillar of the legislation is setting up a new public financing system for congressional and presidential elections to incentivize small-dollar donations. The legislation would establish a 6:1 match using taxpayer money for each grassroots contribution to a candidate up to $200. For example, a $200 donation to a House candidate would garner a $1,200 match in public funds for a total contribution of $1,400.

A match, of course, would be 1:1, not 6:1 in favor of the House. This is standard leftist linguistic dupery of the kind that defines taxes as “revenues,” profligate expenditures of tax money as “investments,” illegal aliens as “undocumented citizens”–and radicals, racists, and reprobates as “Democrats.”

Joe Biden, or more likely his Cheshire handlers, immediately released a written statement praising the proposed legislation. And why would he not?  HR1 would codify into law the same sort of midnight ballot harvesting and illegitimate absentee voting that resulted in the installation of doddering Joe in the White House despite his spending the majority of his campaign napping in his basement.

In 1933, Adolf Hitler used an act of domestic violence as rationale to pass the German version of the “For The People Act.” It was called  the “Law to Remedy the Distress of the People and the Reich,” also known as the “Enabling Act,” but all it enabled was the end of freedom in Germany.

[…] In the end, the law passed with more than the required two-thirds majority, with only Social Democrats voting against it. The Supreme Court did nothing to challenge the legitimacy of this measure. Instead, it accepted the majority vote, overlooking the absence of the Communist delegates and the Social Democrats who were under arrest…German judges—who were among the few who might have challenged Nazi objectives—viewed Hitler’s government as legitimate and continued to regard themselves as state servants who owed him their allegiance and support.

Joe Biden is not Adolf Hitler, of course–Biden, as far as is known, never for a moment considered serving in America’s armed forces–and the U.S. is still a long way from Nazi Germany. That’s National Socialist Germany to you lefties. But despite what Pelosi and her crew of Jackasses are promising, the passage our pirated ship of state has sailed down does not lead to Paradise. We’re heading straight into the teeth of a hurricane–with a ruptured rudder.

You’re A Mean One, Mister Joe

Yer a racist Dr Seuss

Biden Erases Dr. Seuss From ‘Read Across America’ Proclamation As Progressives Seek To Cancel Beloved Author

For millions of Americans, the words “President” and “Biden” should never be used together in the same sentence lest it trigger the gag reflex. Coincidentally, the same reaction occurs whenever a Democrat within hearing range says the word “racist”, a description which the cracked pots of the Left now routinely apply to everything from a 3 month old baby to a glass of milk. That’s a lot of racists. Exactly how many can’t be known because mathematics is racist as well. For the modern ‘progressive’, there’s a white supremacist hiding in every woodpile,

What IS He Doing Here??

biden2

If the United States was still a sane country instead of a proving ground for the latest crackpot conjectures devised by the comic book communists that infest the Democrat party, Joe Biden would be in a rest home having the drool gently wiped from his chin by competent caregivers instead of shuffling around the White House grounds trying to recall his name. But try as they may, the president’s handlers can’t hide the Bide away forever. Sometimes they’re forced to bite the bullet, pause in their task of populating the executive branch with swarms of aberrant leftists, and take the risk of running old Joe out in the open.

What Is He Doing HerePresident Joe Biden is a shadow of his former self.  Long gone is the aggressive, pugnacious, and partisan Democrat who mistreated Supreme Court justice Clarence Thomas in the latter’s confirmation hearings.  Today, Americans see a president who is clearly mentally diminished and is getting worse on a daily basis…Ever since his inauguration, President Biden has been making frequent misstatements and obvious gaffes.  The most recent episodes occurred on Friday.  Earlier in the day, he forgot to put on a mask after finishing a speech.  Then, after a trip to Houston, Texas, Biden made a series of troubling statements.  He referred to high-profile U.S. congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) as “Shirley.”  Also, he mispronounced the name of Congresswoman Lizzie Pannill Fletcher (D-Texas) twice.  After the mistakes, he asked, “What am I doing here?”  (Crazy Old Biden and the Countdown to Kamala)

Whoever thought it was a good idea to toss the nuclear football to Biden ought to have their citizenship revoked and their brains tested for mold. Even the Jackasses want to pull a Lucy on old Joe…

Charlie brownDemocrats already are asking Biden to give up the sole power to order a nuclear strike. This illustrates the grave peril for America and the world of a POTUS not in full possession of his faculties.  It also demonstrates what a grave, irresponsible move it was for a conspiracy of Democrats and media/social media figures to normalize hiding Biden in his basement during the presidential campaign, so that he could serve as a reassuring front man for a leftist cabal that is really running the show, and has the option of installing Kamala Harris as president via the 25th Amendment. (Biden gets lost again giving a speech: ‘What am I doing here?’)

A man whose secret service code name should be “Depends” is a man too antiquated to be president of anything. And his putative replacement is too radical.

Harris2Kamala Harris has deep COMMUNIST connections!

If Biden is elected president, Harris will be one heartbeat or a few brain cells away from the top job. If Harris was to apply for a mid-level job in the Department of Agriculture, she would almost certainly fail the security background check. She owes her entire career to sympathizers or active enablers of the Chinese Communist Party. Fortunately for her (and potentially disastrous for the country), elected office-holders are not subject to the security clearance process. President Trump has said that “If Joe Biden ever got elected, China will own America.” Biden picked the ideal running mate to help out.

High Duties And Misdemeanors

Millionaires Club

“With Congress, every time they make a joke it’s a law, and every time they make a law it’s a joke.” — Will Rogers

“I have come to the conclusion that one useless man is called a disgrace, that two are called a law firm, and that three or more become a congress.” — Peter Stone

“The Senate is a body of old men charged with high duties and misdemeanors.” — Ambrose Bierce

“There is no distinctly native American criminal class except Congress.” — Mark Twain

Understanding the motivational forces behind the insane agenda of today’s “progressives” is not difficult. Take a few years of comic book communism as taught by pointy-headed university academics, top with daily reefer inhalations, mix with a liberal dosage of grievance culture, add a flagon of corruption, and–voila! You’ve got the very model of a modern Marxist Democrat. Such is John Yarmuth of Kentucky.

House Democrat purchased cannabis stocks while supporting legislation to decriminalize marijuana

seinfeld-not-that-theres-anything-wrong-with-that-gif-3Rep. John Yarmuth of Kentucky, who serves as chairman of the House Budget Committee, purchased stocks in Canopy Growth Corporation, Aurora Cannabis, and Tilray on Nov. 5, according to a filing with the Clerk of the House Representatives obtained by Popular Info. Prior to the stock trades, Yarmuth had signed on in September as a co-sponsor to H.R. 3884, the Marijuana Opportunity Reinvestment and Expungement (MORE) Act, which decriminalized cannabis. The legislation passed the House on Dec. 4.

The old dictum that  “everybody’s doing it” doesn’t justify the sin, even though everybody is doing it–at least among the makers of America’s laws. In the U.S. Congress, corruption is the only activity enjoyed equally by Democrats and Republicans. Take San Fran Nan, for example, the Mouth of the House:

Nancy Pelosi Accused Of Corruption After Husband Caught In ‘Insider Trading’ Scheme

The husband of Nancy Pelosi was caught buying up a million dollars in shares of electric car manufacturers just days before the Biden admiration announced that it would replace the federal government’s fleet with all electric vehiclesFour U.S. senators were accused in March of using insider information about the coronavirus pandemic to profit in the stock market…this isn’t the first time the House Speaker has come under scrutiny for investment corruption. Back in 2008 she pulled the same sort of scam with Visa.

The surest ways to get rich in America? Inherit a fortune, marry a millionaire—or get elected to Congress.

Much of the wealth in Congress is concentrated at the top. The top 10 percent of wealthiest lawmakers have three times more wealth than the bottom 90 percent…The group of wealthiest members includes career politicians who boosted their portfolios over decades in Congress and recently elected lawmakers…House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has seen her wealth increase to nearly $115 million from $41 million in 2004…Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) saw his net worth increase from $3 million to over $34 million during that time. (Majority of lawmakers in 116th Congress are millionaires)

fenced inIs the fencing now surrounding the Capitol building designed to keep dissident Americans out? Or to keep miscreant politicians in?  After all, shuttering Congress might just cut the nation’s crime rate in half.

The new barrier in front of the Capitol is proving to be more than just an eyesore. According to D.C. Council Chair Phil Mendelson, the fence, which was installed after the deadly riots in the Capitol building on January 6, is preventing D.C. lawmakers from delivering their bills to Congress. (The New Capitol Fence Is Reportedly Stonewalling DC Legislation)

As a  class, Congress critters are generally dishonest, pretentious, and eager to spend everyone’s money but their own. Coincidentally, these are traits shared by a plurality of the nation’s attorneys. Instead of lawyers, maybe we should elect pipe fitters to represent us.  At least there’d be fewer leaks.
