Governor Cuomo Announces to the World He is a Nitwit!

http://insider.foxnews.com/2017/06/07/donald-trump-illegal-immigration-andrew-cuomo-deport-me-new-york

New York City Governor Andrew Cuomo said recently (not sure of date of speech, article published 07 June 2017) President Trump should start with him in the process of deporting immigrants. In doing so, Governor Cuomo demonstrates his inability to speak intelligently. Several factual gaffes appear in this statement:

1. The President of the United States cannot deport anyone. Only an immigration judge, in an immigration court and proceedings has the authority to deport anyone. Nor does the President of the United States have authority to direct such a court to deport any specific individual.

2. Governor Cuomo was born in New York City to parents presumably citizens of the United States. He was not born in any of the ‘exception’ areas – the Italian Consulate, for instance – and is therefore a citizen of the United States. A citizen of the United States – by law – cannot be deported. Only non-citizens can be deported.

3. The current President of the United States has made no statements about a blanket deportation of ‘immigrants’. He has spoken of deportation of those persons, not U. S. citizens, in the territory of the United States AND engaged in the planning or commission of illegal, felonious acts; or those in the U. S. without legal authority (commonly called ‘illegal aliens’). One notes if Governor Cuomo has either planned or committed illegal felonious acts, and is under law liable as an ‘abettor’ or participant in such acts, he may be arrested, tried and convicted and sentenced to penal servitude or other punishment as prescribed by law and directed by competent court. But Governor Cuomo cannot be deported for such action.

All of the above should be known to Governor Cuomo. I say again, ‘…should be aware…’. One notes Governor Cuomo is an attorney and has practiced law at least in the State of New York. Attorneys in general should be aware of these provisions of Federal Law.

From all this, two alternatives present themselves. One is Governor Cuomo is woefully ignorant of the law. Which strikes me as a bit unlikely. The other alternative is Governor Cuomo is so intent in his hatred for President Trump, et al, the Governor has decided to utter mis-truths in order to cast aspersions on the President.

I am always doubtful of those who cannot find a legitimate argument for criticism and instead utter mis-truths. Nor does this generate any confidence or sympathy for Governor Cuomo or his purpose.

Obviously, the “Stop Trump” campaign is Pro Democrat

I note a number of delegates to the Republican Convention have been stymied in their effort to block the nomination of Donald Trump.

Since the overwhelming choice of individuals voting in the Republican Primary this year voted for Donald Trump, one wonders why a group of people would do that? None of the party favored candidates seem to garner much interest.

The only logical explanation is the ‘Stop Trump’ faction is against any and all conservative candidates and would prefer to see the Democrat candidate – seemingly Hillary “the teflon screecher” Clinton win the election.

I’d like to see the Republican National Committee publish the names of the Turncoats who favor sabotage to elections. Then, we the voters can deal with them as we see fit.

Rights? What Rights?

North Carolina has passed a state law prohibiting the use of gender specific rest room by people of a gender not identified on the bathroom.

In common terms, men may not use women’s rest rooms and vice-versa.

The Federal Government, specifically the Obama Administration and politically appointed positions of the Obama Administration, has ordered gender specific rest rooms to open to anyone who chooses to use them; regardless of who is already using the rest room.

Note this does not apply only to those persons who have had extensive surgery to remove extraneous sexual organs and features, additionally cosmetically adding the appearance of the desired sexual organs and features; but applies to anyone ‘identifying’ as a member of a sex. So a physically complete, functional female can enter a male rest room at will. Conversely, a physically complete and fully functional male can enter a female rest room at will.

According to the Obama Administration – and a group of supporters presumably and announced as members of the self-proclaimed “GBLT community” (“GBLT” is identified as Gay – Bi sexual – Lesbian – Transvestite or Trans sexual) demand this; as anything less intrudes on their ‘right’ to relieve themselves.

There are several inconsistent and somewhat incoherent thoughts in this.

One: From where does the ‘right’ to use a rest room of the other sex derive? The U. S. Constitution lists no such right along with speedy trials, possessing and carrying arms, security in property and papers, and the ability to criticize the government; probably some others I haven’t mentioned.

The Declaration of Independence – if not the structure of our nation and government as the Constitution, is the spirit of our nation and government – cites ‘inalienable rights’ ‘endowed by our Creator’ as the source of individual rights. I hear no argument nor can I cite such such ‘rights’ as endowed by the Creator. Nor has anyone else heretofore. Ever.

Two: Presuming such rights – and I do not, I speak only for sake of argument – why and how do the rights of ‘this group’ overrule the rights of ‘that group’? In common speech and thought, how does the claimed ‘right’ of a physical male who ‘self-identifies’ as a female, over rule the right of physical females who feel threatened and humiliated by the presence of a physical male in their rest room?

Why is allowing ‘other sex’ people to invade the rest rooms of ‘regular sex’ people so important?

Three: How many of those people who might be considered “LBGT” really want to use the rest room of the other sex? How many Lesbians want to use rest room facilities with men? (Either as the invader or the invadee?) (I see from my spell check I’ve invented another word.) Conversely, how many homosexually inclined men want to use rest room facilities with women? (Again, as invader or invadee?) From my own knowledge derived from the men and women I know to be homosexual, none of them have suggested – to me anyway – they really feel deprived not being allowed in the ‘other’ rest room.

Four: The incidence of homosexuality – including lesbianism – in this country (or among humans world wide) is a very slim minority. There are varying estimates on the percentage. All the scientific surveys and estimates I can find start by saying, “No one really knows” and then proceeds with their best guess. I find it not surprising that most answers tend to support the views of the parent organization or agency. (Non-gay organizations tend to be lower in estimates than gay activist organizations.) However, all groups seem to find the homosexual (male and female) incidence rates are distinct minorities. The rates range from less than four percent to approaching twenty percent.

Therefore, by any count, the number of persons supporting and expecting some form of benefit from the dictate to ‘open the rest rooms’ to any is a rather small minority. What is the desire of the Obama Administration in discomfiting the
majority for the supposed benefit of a distinct minority?

By the way, we are not suggesting – nor does the North Carolina law, nor anyone else – denial of public restrooms to anyone. There is no question of “You have to go home to go”. Unless of course, the ‘open rest room’ faction succeeds; in which case the majority of people will be forced to share facilities with those who want to embarrass and possibly harm them.

Five: President Obama is now threatening to penalize North Carolina and other local governmental agencies if they do not comply with his dictates. All schools receiving federal funds – and of course, ALL public schools have been mandated to receive federal funds – or in the common tongue, individual citizen’s tax money – and therefore, ALL public schools are subject to the extortion by command, to open all restrooms to anyone who feels like it.

What is the purpose of all this? Other than the progressive goal of destroying all morals and values, one does not know. One understands this will expose all school age children – in a very vulnerable state – to the visual review of anyone and everyone. This is desired by the progressive faction of society, but I’m not sure it is desired by many others.

One other thing: If the United States elects a Democrat, either Democrat, to the Presidency everyone may rest assured this attack will continue. The reader may vote as the reader pleases. If getting more money and ‘benefits’ is more important than your children, feel free to vote Democrat.

If one’s children are important, one must consider doing otherwise.

There is fear, and there is fear.

Fear from ‘dictionary.com’: a distressing emotion aroused by impending danger, evil, pain, etc., whether the threat is real or imagined; the feeling or condition of being afraid. In this condition, fear is a stimulus for ‘fright or flight’; action or activity to prevent or avoid the potential danger. Running away, shooting back, ducking, changing lanes or sometime simply holding still and concentrating on not tensing muscles during a medical injection.

Fear is the perception of danger or pain. Hopefully this is followed by some action to mitigate or remove the stimulus.

Then, from the Old Man book of experience and observation, fear is a condition gripping both the centers of thought and action (colloquially, ‘heart and brain’) resulting in a lack of action or reaction other than staying in place, voiding one’s bladder and perhaps major intestine; lastly, not avoiding the danger. Some refer to this as the “deer (or rabbit) in the headlights” syndrome.

For instance, those individuals who claim to be adherents of Islam and simultaneously feel the need to murder others to bring Islam to supremacy are known commonly as ‘terrorists’. Most members of U. S. based police agencies understand a finite but definite danger exists from those so described formerly. That is, “terrorists will kill U. S. police officers when convenient for the terrorists”.

Any questions? Good.

Good Fear
Taking steps to avoid being killed (as outlined above) is reasonable. Officers are encouraged to be vigilant, both on and off duty; to keep the mechanical means of self-defense available in all senses of the word; to exercise and keep in good physical shape; to plan ahead as far as possible. Even, in extremis to prepare documents and personal property for one’s eventual demise. (Even without terrorists, one can be T-boned by otherwise ‘innocent’ traffic or contract cancer and so forth.) (Note the attacker’s statements and reasons for attacking officer Harnett.)

Those are all activities and actions I deem proper and reasonable.

Objections? Good.

Recently, one of Philladelphia’s finest – Officer Jesse Harnett – was attacked and wounded (shot) by a man (who shall remain nameless as befits his character in this essay) using a Glock 19 pistol. Said pistol was obtained by the attacker in some fashion AFTER the pistol was stolen from the Philladelphia Police Department. (See http://www.cbsnews.com/news/philadelphia-police-edward-archer-shooting-jesse-hartnett-name-of-islam/ for a full report rather than me cutting and pasting it all.)

Bad Fear

The city mayor – Jim Kenney – has stated in a press conference about the attempted murder “It has nothing to do with being a Muslim or following the Islamic faith.” (At this point, please recall the attacker’s statement.) Not only that, but Mayor Kenney once again – on cue – blames the presence of ‘guns’ for criminal activity.

Since the arm was stolen from the Philadelphia Police (from an individual officer is what is reported); and because Mayor Kenney implies the weapon caused the attacker to attempt the murder of Officer Harnett, one is forced to inquire if the same weapon caused the last officer who possessed the weapon to attempt any murders? Frankly, I don’t think so.

This is an example of the second concept of (bad) fear. Panic. In order to follow the President’s example (demand) of allowing no ill-favored news or reports about Islam, Mayor Kenney is ignoring the comments of the attacker and pretending this was just another criminal doing what criminals do. Blaming guns for criminal acts. Missing from Mayor Kenney’s comments, of course, are warnings of Global Warming and demand for tax-payer funded Abortion. No doubt he’ll be chided for those omissions.

As it happens, based on the news photographs of the attacker, is a black man. Therefore, a black criminal attempted to kill officer Harnett, not a Muslim. I’m wondering how Al Sharpton is going to respond? Also, I’m breathless to see Mayor Kenney’s response to Sharpton.

If Sharpton does not interfere, one wonders why the silence.

How Much Do Your Mayor Have in Grapes?

If you have not heard what the Major of Jerusalem did concerning the knifer a day or so ago, you live a protected life.

Check out the reports. His Honor, the Mayor (if that’s the appropriate title in Jerusalem) wrestled the knife wielding man to the ground. Yes, his bodyguard was armed and present, but the Mayor was empty handed.

He’s on the ‘free beer’ if he shows up list.

The President Who Would be Divine

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/11/10/obama-wants-ban-on-internet-fast-lane-deals/

This does not surprise me.

In short, President Obama has called for ‘more regulation’ of the internet.  Not to protect children from harm, the usual excuse, but to prevent companies from making deals with other companies.  No doubt this will pave the way for the President to rule the internet by executive order, or as the Democrat likes to think of it, ‘Divine Right’.

It just goes on and on, doesn’t it?  Let’s see how the ‘media’ respond to this demand.  So far, the news ‘media’ have acted as the mouthpiece for the Obama administration and Democrat in general.  This one is going to put He Who Would be Divine directly in charge of the new media.  Will the media object?  How will they justify giving up their Constitutional First Amendment rights?  (They’ve already pretty much surrendered those rights already.)

What I find amazing about this is this seems to be part of the President’s response to the nation voting his puppets out of office and control of Congress.  He’s so offended by the voting electorate rejecting his incompetence, he is now abandoning all pretense of being President and is assuming the role of a monarch.

Like I said, This does not surprise me.

Why Do Supplicants and Beggars NOT Allow a Response?

I am a registered Republican.  I am politically, financially and socially rather conservative.  Obviously, I cannot be considered a Democrat in any fashion; I am non-socialist and I care about the future of the nation.  Most of all, I’m a Christian – which is anathema for the Democrat collective.

However, I must confess the Republican Party drives me crazy at times.  Dennis Prager, the intellectual radio commentator, says about political affiliation, “There are two parties in the United States.  One is dangerous and the other is stupid.  I’m with the stupid party.”  (I prefer the description of ‘hazardous’ for the Democrat collective.)  The Republican Party is rather stupid at times.

For instance, when the Republicans want money from me – supplicants and beggars – but they do NOT allow me to voice my concerns.  They send me all sorts of begging messages expressing concern over why I haven’t sent any money, but they never bother asking why I haven’t sent anything.  Perhaps they get ‘enough’ from others and the Republican High Command believe they don’t really have to respond to ‘regular’ voters.

Mitch McConnell is backing off the push to repeal Obamacare.  He’s got a ‘plan’ to do something, but it remains to be seen just what.  It is simply more mealy-mouthing and lack of determination.  McConnell’s position is that of a man who fears public opinion.  Except for mine, of course.  He seems to have no regard for my position and opinions.

Here’s the bottom line for the Republican Party:  Pay attention to what I value, and I’ll send money.  It is that simple.

Just for the record, I do send money regularly to the Tea Party – who haven’t decided being liked is more important than the future of the nation.  I do send political money to the National Rifle Association and other like minded firearm organizations.  These groups in fact stand against the socialists and over-spenders and central authority proponents.  The enemies of the republic the Republican Party should target.  But don’t seem to notice.
