This made us laugh. (Mostly because it rings true.)

Trump’s Lawyer Goes After Talking Head. Good For Him.

There’s no need for us to discuss the acquittal of President Donald Trump for a second time.

Michael van der Veen was one of the Trump lawyers. He spoke with a member of the media from CBSN and instead of accepting her talking points, van der Veen went after the media in general and how they presented a narrative that was not accurate. In addition, he called them out for not highlighting the fact that the House managers had fabricated and doctored evidence in the impeachment trial which the media did not cover to any great extent.

It is a beautiful thing to watch and instructive that the interviewer kept trying to make her points, rather than asking questions and dealing with the answers.

However, no good deed goes unpunished and van der Veen reported that his house and law practice office was attacked:

N.C. Lieutenant Governor Mark Robinson: KKK Member? What The Heck?

Back on April 3, 2018, Mark Robinson stood up and addressed the Greensboro, NC City Council over the issue of the Second Amendment and gun rights.

The off the cuff comments from the conservative Robinson is the stuff that legends are made of (see above video.)

I’ve heard a whole lot of people here talking tonight about this group and that group, domestic violence, blacks. These minorities and that minority. What I want to know is, when are you all gonna start standing up for the majority? And here’s who the majority is. I’m the majority. I’m a law-abiding citizen who’s never shot anybody, never committed a felony. I’ve never done anything like that.

But it seems like every time we have one of these shootings, nobody wants to put the blame where it goes, which is at the shooter’s feet. You want to put it at my feet. You want to turn around and restrict my right, Constitutional right that’s spelled out in black and white, you want to restrict my right to buy a firearm and protect myself from some of the very people you’re talking about in here tonight. It’s ridiculous. I don’t think Rod Serling could come up with a better script. (emphasis ours)

Robinson’s “folksy” (it is North Carolina after all) and direct way of speaking appealed to a lot of people.

Inauguration Day.

Today, Joe Biden will be sworn in as president along with Kamala Harris as vice president.

Ahead of the inauguration, there have been violent protests and destruction of property:

Six police officers suffered minor injuries when protesters flung bricks, trash cans and other objects, and ignited small fires, [Metro Police Chief] said.

Four businesses were vandalized and sustained “significant damage,” he said. Also, demonstrators torched a limousine, police at the scene said.

All of the 217 people arrested on Friday were charged with rioting, Newsham said. And in some cases cops used flash-bang grenades and pepper spray to keep them from getting closer to the parade route.

In response, the National Guard is supplying 25,000 troops to Washington, DC. The troops are being quartered in hotels, at a local armory, and at the convention center.

You probably haven’t heard about the destruction and rioting we mention above because it happened during the Trump inauguration.

Representative Matt Gaetz Goes Off.

Matt Gaetz represents Florida District 1 in the House of Representatives.

During the impeachment debate, Gaetz went off on a righteous rant against those who supported and even encouraged violence in the streets this past summer, but are claiming Trump incited violence (even though he did not.)


“Tolerance” And “Unity.”

Michael Beller was a principle counsel for PBS which in addition to being supported by viewers, receives Federal money through the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.

Depending on the source, Beller either resigned or was fired after Project Veritas filmed Beller making statements that are horrific. Those statements include:

Beller: “We go for all the Republican voters and Homeland Security will take their children away…we’ll put them into the re-education camps.”

“Sow The Wind, Reap The Whirlwind.”

No one was more disappointed in the storming of the Capital Building in Washington than we were.

We believe the action by served no purpose and only served to make people mad. Furthermore, while we read some articles saying “this was not as bad as the riots in some cities,” to us that is simply moral rationalization. As an adult, we have never bought into the excuse of “they did it too,” as we gave that up after second grade.

We cannot justify what happened and will not even try. It is one thing to protest (which we support) and another to vandalize (which we condemn.)

However, President Elect Biden made a speech yesterday where he not only condemned the acts in the Capital, he tried to portray other riots in a positive light.

President-elect Joe Biden said the treatment of the rioters at the Capitol insurrection on Wednesday and of Black Lives Matter protesters last year revealed a blatant double standard in how law enforcement responded to the two groups.
