Opinion and Commentary By Donna Westfall – December 22, 2023
“Pro-Hamas miscreants vandalize Lincoln Memorial” The highlights: “…the words “FREE GAZA,” “FREE PALESTINE” and “LAND BACK” that had been written in blood-red paint on the steps leading up to the temple-style memorial built in honor of the nation’s 16th president, the man who ended slavery.”
“Bridgeport Voters Demand Arrest of City Employees Who Committed Election Fraud” The Highlights: In Bridgeport, Connecticut, two city employees were caught on camera stuffing the ballot box for the incumbent mayor. Judge threw out the election results citing fraud, but nobody was arrested so far.
“Vivek Ramaswamy Committed a Murder in the Fourth GOP Loser Debate” The highlights: During the debate with Nikki Haley, “The blank look on her face when Ramaswamy asks her to name three provinces in Ukraine that she’d like to send American troops to die in was priceless.”
“Colorado Supreme Court declares Donald Trump is ineligible for the White House” The highlights: Even though Trump has never been found guilty of insurrection, the four Democrat Colorado Supreme Court justices declared he waged an “insurrection” against the US government.
On Wednesday, December 20th, “California Lieutenant Governor Eleni Kounalakis sent a letter to Secretary of State Shirley Weber urging her to find a way to dump Trump from the ballot in time for next year’s election.”
“Chicago mayor FUMES as Texas gets around bus block, begins flying migrants to sanctuary cities” The highlights: Republican Texas Governor Greg Abbott started dumping illegal migrants in sanctuary cities in 2022. Now, the city of Chicago initiated lawsuits against bus companies transporting the migrants. Instead, Abbott sent 120 by airplane. Thus far, he’s relocated 83,000 to D.C., New York City, Chicago, Philadelphia, Denver, and Los Angeles.
Speaking of Texas:
“Texas Lt. Gov. Suggests Removing Biden from Ballot in Texas” The highlights: Because of Biden’s lack of border control.
“Israel hunts for Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar in Gaza” The highlights: Like the US searching and killing Osama Bin Laden, IDF will not stop until Sinwar is toast.
Some of these stories are serious and others ridiculous. Taking Trump or Biden off the ballots when nothing is in concrete seems a huge waste of time, resources and money (mainly taxpayers money) and makes everyone look ridiculous.
Speaking of taxpayers money, what do you say to an article about connecting inflation to increased taxes to increased poverty and homelessness. Don’t politicians realize the correlation? Or are they mainly interested in hiring more and more in order to create a bigger distinction between our two tier society.
