News and Events

Common Sense

Celebrated impeachment lawyer Ken Starr

may not have any reason to celebrate at all.

In Trump’s defense, he elaborated on the Constitution

and history in maybe the effort to confuse those minions

to decide from the state of bewilderment.

A lot of the principles promulgated in 1876 do not apply now.

This is one effective strategy to use against people who

are not cognizant of what Starr is really talking about.

In this case it would be best to disregard what has been

narrated so far and just use common sense.

For instance, Impeachment may be used as a weapon

IF the guilt or misdemeanor of the defendant is not known.

Trump’s guilt has been widely publicized and that he was

actually caught red-handed.

So the Trial is actually a Check on Trump

and not a weapon against Trump.

Impeachment, in such a case as this,

becomes part and parcel

of the System of Checks and balances.

Ken Starr mistakes this trial for the Impeachment of the Trump

as a weapon by the Democrats for use in the next elections.

No, he should have the common sense to add

that if the President admits he made a misdemeanor,

then he should be punished.

Plainly taken straight from the noggin.

He also dealt with the  no response given to the subpoenas

saying that these should be passed thru the Courts.

He dealt with this subject in a miniature time frame,

without discussing what check and balance item

in the Constitution would refer to the judges

who  withhold their decisions for months at an end.

Clearly,

and paraphrasing Starr,

 the System of Checks and Balances

refer only to the relations  between

the Executive Branch and Congress.

The Judicial Branch rules over all.

Boy, do the Americans ever need a Judge Roy Bean now, 

(off the bat)

Two-Faced Lecturers

 

Even though they are not part of Trump’s Defense,

they will be allowed to speak at the Impeachment Trial.

One of them is the two-faced professor Alan D.

He will say:

“I did not say that I was wrong before

I am only saying that

now I am more correct”

BRIBERY

 

BRIBERY

in capital letters

runs the world.

It may appear in different forms,

each form has one thing in common—

a favor for a favor, one thing for another,

money for whatever,

something back for a donation,

a coupon, a rebate, allowance,

passes, entrance, exits,

even contributions for a political campaign,

the last one being the most common in

politics for gaining influence.

I heard this word as a passing remark,

and softly at this,

from Grandma Pelosi,

referring to the reason for

the impeachment inquiry.

After more thinking I realized what is inferred.

Two Plus Two equals—-

 now gives me that sickly feeling

that what is being held back from the public

is the bribery committed by Trump

and completed by Bagman Ghouliani.

Proof of this evil deed may be in the documents

being held back by Trump.

Bribery may then turn into,

or be combined,  

to its concomitant

cousin : BLACKMAIL.

Also in capital letters.

This being so,

even witnesses who may know of this evil act

may be reluctant to speak due to fear and security.

Whom of these may be vulnerable?

Those who may have received Trump’s favors or

contributions to help them get elected or employed.

(quid pro quo to Siokin)

Head On A Spike

A wrong vote may get a Senator’s head on a spike,

brown, blonde, or black-haired,

Viking-style.

The truth hurts, doesn’t it?

Well, there is one way to prove

that this will not happen.

 

Shifting The Blame

  Counsel, Jay Settoolow,

hopes to shift the blame from his patron.

Da Capo Trump

to Hunter Biden

and/or Obama’s administration.

Naïve and childish, isn’t it?

Sort of saying that Trump’s fingers

were caught dipping in the cookie jar

because he wants to throw away the bad cookies.

Trump was the one caught dipping, of course,

and not Hunter Biden.

It should be noted that it was Jay Settoolow

who advised Da Capo Trump to order a no cooperation

with the House of Representatives,

using the Executive Privelege,

causing the latter to bring down the Article 2

of the Impeachment.

To whom could Jay Settoolow shift the blame now?

(The End Does Not Justify The Means)

Cementing The Case

House Managers seals their case

so tight that the Counsel for Trump may find it

extremely difficult to find a defense.

It is expected that their defense will

again be ridiculously off the mark,

exhibiting both their ineptitude

and their desperation.

Abuse Of Power

 

 

Prof.mpg

The Prof,

still professing that he is not part

of Trump’s defense team,

will expound on the point that Trump’s actions

were not impeachable,

referring to the logic of the Framers of the Constitution.

That may be, but it should be pointed out

that the framers of the Constitution had little or no idea

of what the country would bw subjcted to

in the future.

Such thing like homicides, homosexual tendencies,

abortions, nuclear weapons, mercenaries, foreign aids, and such,

were not in consideration when the Constitution

was debated upon.

The Prof will then argue

that what is termed as Abuse of Power

is actually a form of maladministration due to poor judgement

and therefore it is not a crime and is not impeachable.

In so doing, the Prof will argue that impeachment will be determined

by the gravity of the President’s act,

and not the cause for the act.

To distinguish therefore

between maladministration and abuse of power,

I propose to present this case as an example.

Listen well,

because even though this case is not as serious

as the act by which the Abuse of Power article is based on,

this case is  presented

to compare and contrast between abuse of power

and mere maladministration.

Ergo……

If a father maltreats his children with beatings.

scoldings,  withholding subsistence benefits,  and so forth,

these may be considered as mere acts of bad parenting

which should be ignored and left unpunished because

upon him is vested the sole authority

and responsibility to fend for his children.

However,

if this father forces sex upon his children,

this will be considered as abuse of authority.

or simply abuse of power,

because this authority,

 vested solely upon himself,

has been taken advantage of,

and his act has been done in excess of

what his authority dictates.

The father has made a quid pro quo.

or an implicit sex for sustenance,

 

ABUSE means literally over and above expectations.

Get it?

 

Another Cold Spell

Too cold again for Edmonton.

Minus 35 degrees .

It is so cold here that the horses are unable to move

before they are thawed out

by turning some hair dryers on them.

Where the heck is the promised global warming?

 

Iranian Blow-up

The Western media, including trhe much huffed-up,

Canadian TV, continues to blow up the Iranian 752 affair.

As if these media does not have anything more interesting

to sell than this Iranian fiasco.

The Iranian Leader has already admitted its responsibility

for the 752 plane crash, even promising to convict the perpetrators

and compensate the victims of the crash.

This is already publicized, so what’s more do the TV hosts want?

Rouhani’s head?

A stupid question keeps being asked as to why the air transportation

remained open during that time.

The stupid reply would be : that there is no existing conflict on that zone,

Iran not being at war with anybody.

So it is business as usual.

The airport has always been open.

So what’s the beef?

Another thing is that the Iranians are out in protest

against the futile effort of the presumed “hard” revenge on the Us,

there being nobody killed.

Much more, Rouhani lied about the strike being “terrible’

when in fact it proved to be harmless.

The Iranians protest is a manifestation of their lust for revenge

and not for a change in government

as what the Westerners are salivating to hear again.

Incidentally, I do realize that Rouhani is as good a diplomat

as is a Muslim leader.

I can see that what he is doing now is actually working well

towards his objectives for the Iranian people.

His hidden agenda is well in hand.

I find it funny that the TV hosts, just like I,

would insist on publicizing our hunches

as regards the Souleimani’s assassination.

But funnier it is

that some hunches are childishly concluded

and way, way off.

For instance, the main effort of the investigation should be

the answer to the question as to who really downed the 752,

and not the damnation of Iran.

Remember what I keep saying—

that not everybody lives the same way as the Americans do.

 

 

MH17, Ayayayayay!

Now before I go to MH370

we’ll talk about MH17

which has more damning evidence

simply because  MH370 is still missing

so there.

Also, note that I am now posting on a different computer

for obvious reasons.

I know what I will go through again were I to post on

the same computer at any one time.

They still do not believe that I do not have any source/s

for my material.

Everything is guesswork, er analyses I mean.

You may, however, listen to the spins of the tv hosts

whom I know are just out to make a living.

They may be more plausible

To summarize the events involving Malaysian Airlines MH17,

this Boeing 777 was thought to have been brought down by a Buk missile

launched by the Russian “rebels’ in Ukraine.

the Unkrainians also have Buk missiles, them being once a part

of the Russian Army, and being a province of Russia under Khrushchev.

The western part of Ukraine is Ukrainian.

The Eastern part is Russian.

Poroshenko,

for some good personal and patriotic intentions,

applied for membership to the European Union which was accepted

and was provided with billions of IMF loans and another billions

of CIA provisions.

Putin sought to protect the Russians and sent in soldiers

in “neutral” uniforms and “neutral” weapons.

The skirmishes that ensued resulted on a stalemate (as expected)

because NATO did not profess to enter the fray.

And so comes Brennan’s mercenaries to help protect the Ukrainians

and the 5 billion dollars.

The MH17 was subsequently brought down

 seemingly by a Russian Buk msssile.

Dutch investigators of the MH17 crash declared

that the plane was actually

strafed on that side that killed the pilot.

Reports were that there were two ‘planes” following MH17.

The people on the ground say that they did not see the planes.

The “planes” were maybe too small and too insignificant to see.

Why did they bring down the MH17?

The Secretary General of NATO is a Swede.

MH17 was full of Swedish passengers.

Good logic prevailed.

He did not get NATO to enter the fray!

And the planes?

They were drones in their early stages of development

and did not carry missiles then, only MG’s.

Soldiers of Fortune

 

Private Contractors?

Presently their existence, and subsistence, is in question.

They are desperately trying to prove their worth.

A billion dollars in contract is at stake.

It has been aired in public that the 752 might have been downed

by mistake.

Mistake by whom?

Remember that there was no word yet after 2 hours

of the Iranian missile strikes that there were no casualties

to prove that there was no need to retaliate

against Iran anymore as was planned.

But they did anyway.

MISTEK!

Trump never ordered a retaliation like this…

In fact, Trump may never have ordered the assassination of Soleimani.

He only said so to get credit for it!

The downing of the 752 was done as a retaliation for the

presumed damages to the American air bases.

The Iranians could never have fired

on the unarmed airliner  carrying friendly passengers,

knowing that they are under peaceful de-escalation.

I believe that some people know for certain

who done the downing

but don’t yap about it.

Dong worri, we’ll do the yapping—

(If you do not agree with my trend of thought, just consider yourselves entertained..)

EH?

Waiting For The Strike

Iran is not de-escalating.

Neither is it escalating.

IT IS consolidating.

Preparations are being made for the attack

which is in response to the assassination

of its top general.

The Iranian military promised a strike

but my hunch is it will not be from the military arm.

It would be from a specialized mercenary force.

This method relieves Iran from the international

rules regarding intentions to declare war.

In other words, this method does not fall within

the articles of war.

It should be remembered that it was the Americans

that used these mercenaries effectively in the Middle East,

even renaming the armed force as private contractors.

Guess what. The Iranians will use these private contractors

quid pro quid or whatever.

More confusion will thereafter arise because these

Iranian private contractors

are actually within the US already.

It should be recalled that the Persians have been using mercenaries

already during the reign of Darius.

Remember Xenophon’s 10,000 Greeks?

An attack using private contractors will not represent a violation

of the Rules of War and therefore will not imply a declaration of war.

Incidentally, the private contractors in service for the US

have provided a whole load of false intelligence info

to their  handlers causing confusion in the militry

and the diplomatic corps in such a way that there

is a growing rift between these branches of government.

Their last report is that Soleimani is planning a big attack.

My guess is that the plan was actually to synchronize

with the religious organzations to ask the Iraqi government

to kick out the American troops.

Which they did, anyway.

But no killing was intended.

In fact, the Iranian military does not kill Americans.

extremists do that,

But for the Americans,

the whole blasted Muslim people are extremists.

FYI, extremists are not soldiers.Big mistek!

 

Iranian Diversionary

Now everybody talks about the Iranian vengeful attack

on the US of A.

The type of assault is anybody’s guess.

But Trump has succeeded in diverting the people’s attention

from  his impeachment problem.

And again there is the pre-conditioning of the people

on the subject that the US of A is greater than any other country.

hence the favorable Senate decision on his impeachment case

will not incur much of an amazement from his base.

His diversion of assassinating the top commander

of the Persian military, however, will have consequences

on both Trump and his people,

notwithstanding the humongous budget deficit

that would flare up as a result.

His decision to kill the Persian generals

did not have prior sanction

from the United Nations,

nor by the NATO Heads of state,

nor by the American Congress.

Trump pulled out the sanction from his own ego.

Which makes his electoral base wonder—

when will he lego his ego?

Or that which is detrimental

to world peace.

 

Damage Control With Lies

The killing of the Iranian top commander

was a mistake.

The Americans never knew who they were targeting.

Trump did not give the order.

He just learned of the raid from the reports.

Now the American military starts the damage control

as if they had the guy bracketed ever since.

The result will destabilize the region.

It will now be restricted to Americans.

They should now tread softly around people

with the likes of Arabs and such.

What the Americans call the enemy of the world

will now be united against the enemy that is the Americans.

Boy, what a boyish mistake that was.

The Saudis should now start shaking

under their turbans,

or headdress, whatever they call it.

(I would not worry about the Persians going against Canadians. We had nothing to do with it!)

Andrew Scheer Resigns

Andrew Scheer resigns the leadership of his party.

This will aggravate the anger

that is still smoldering in Alberta.

Worse, it will splinter the West.

Trump Impeachment On Hold

The House Judiciary Committee 

promptly recessed after more than 12 hours

of repetitive arguments between the Republicans

and the Democrats.

This fouls up the schedules of the participants

and everybody else concerned.

Any scheduled protests is, by necessity, postponed,

The impeachment votes will be counted tomorrow morning,

giving time for the people concerned, including Trump,

to meditate on their plans ahead of the vote.

No-Win-Win-Win NAFTA

The new USMCA trade deal

between US, Mexico, and Canada

was just signed today,

the one which Pelosi declared as

infinitely better trade deal.

Of course it is, for the Unioted States only.

It is not a Win-Win-Win situation as Freeland says.

The Canadians should think twice about this.

And maybe think some more until the head hurts.

The USMCA just about EQUALIZES the price of goods

between the three countries concerned.

And when this situation arises

only the US will benefit.

An equalized price of goods just about eliminates

the Americans importing from Canada and Mexico,

eliminating the deficit in the US.

What benefits most from this deal are the laborers

because rigid rules will now control the wages and welfare

of the workers in all three countries.

We can imagine that the auto workers will now receive more

in wages to ensure equalized prices of assembled vehicles.

What about those who do not work in car assembly lines?

What about the wages of those who pump gas,

or sell vegetables, or drive the buses?

It is now getting very difficult not to call politics

a no-brainer!

Let us use our heads for once.

Or twice if it need be.

If only to check whether the USMCA

is actually a Lose-Lose situation.

 

Scheer Vs. Progressives

As his own party blames him for the defeat

at the last election,

Andrew Scheer hangs on as Party Leader.

And if I might put in my million-member word,

the reason why the conservatives lost is due to

the party’s own promise of cutting back on expenses.

This about scared the voters from Eastern Canada

that if the Progressives win the equalization payments

will be cut off.

Presently, there is not one member of the Progressive Party

that can replace Andrew Scheer and still secure the support

of ALL of Alberta.

However, everybody knows that the next government

will be formed by the Progressives,

aye, and there’s the rub.

Bringing Scheer down will give Alberta back to the NDP.

Remember that Alberta did not vote for the Progressive.

Alberta voted for the pipeline.

No pipeline, no Progressive.

Rachel Notley, NDP, was not re-elected as Alberta Premier

because her own NDP party member, Singh,

refuses to allow the TMX in to BC.

Do not listen much to any Quebecer’s words against Alberta.

Quebec is going down.

Alberta now know how it bleeds Canada,

Alberta mostly.

(million members?)

Bill Increase

The Americans increase the service charge

for keeping its troops in South Korea.

It is now a $4.7 Billion bill.

The South Koreans will have to shoulder this

as if the Americans eat this much in Bulgoki.

As I said, the amount rings a bell.

This time it rings louder.

Loud enough to scare the bats in the belfry,

proving somebody has gone batty.

One country, the Philippines,

declined to pay for the American troops

and closed both the Clark Filed airbase

and the Subic Naval base, instead.

It did not need the Americans, after all.

 

Marie Yovanovitch

This woman,

former Ambassador to Ukraine,

has made me alter my views

of the Foreign Service.

Diplomats are not adversarial

not antagonistic

stoic

and don’t smile much.

But they do come across.

And this is all that counts

This is the first time I am going to say this

after all 6,415 of my posts,

UP  WITH  WOMEN!

Quebec’s Mea Culpa

SO!

The French guy Blanchet

seeks to come to Alberta to talk to Kenny.

What for? Mea Culpa?

Is he coming to refund all the oil money Quebec received from Alberta?

Is he coming to stop the Province from removing the French language

from the Alberta curriculum?

Is he coming to ask to join the Premier’s meeting?

Is he coming to ask Alberta not to defer the equalization payment?

Or is he coming for a look see at what Alberta grog tastes like?

Whatever his reason is, he should remember to speak in English!

(Maybe he just realized that somebody squealed that Quebec

had surplus budgets in all those years

that this province received equalization payments claiming

it was a have-not province.)

Failing Hongkong Protests

The ongoing ever-violent protests in Hong Kong

are doomed to failure.

It would have received support from the other countries

had the protesters not invaded government offices

and destroyed private properties.

In so doing, they demonstrated thet they will not follow

the democratic principles that they want to be subjected to.

On the other hand, it is the the autonomous government

of Carrie Lam that has shown it upholds democratic principles.

Carrie Lam has allowed the freedom to protest without

stopping it with armed military forces.

The protesters are provoking the police to be violent, though,

but the police have been heroic enough to hold back.

And so does Beijing.

The effort to determine with undercover Chinese as

to who is funding the protests have failed.

Meantime, Beijing is not cutting off the food exports to Hong Kong

because this is also one way to drain the protesters of the funds

that they are sre spending for food.

Meantime, it has taken Regina Ip’s “silent majority”

too long a time before it starts a counter-protest.

Hong Kong’s  financial  success,  and Beijing’s  too,

is not democracy, but an autonomous free port for all nations.

Tourists go there to buy things at affordable prices.

Let us not listen to the young people

who have yet to be concerned about backbreaking work

of earning a living.

Like babies, they cry because they need something.

They do not know what they need exactly.

They only know that they need something.

And they cry only because they NEED something.

Worse, they cry because they WANT something

which is out of reach.
