Thoughts On the New Brett Kavanaugh Accusations: Where There is Smoke, There is Fire

When Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed last year, his confirmation was far from smooth.

This week, new sexual assault allegations have surfaced against Justice Kavanaugh. If that was not enough, there are some who are questioning if the FBI did a thorough investigation and are calling for his impeachment.

Where there is smoke, there is fire.

From my perspective, the fact that he was still confirmed in spite of the evidence speaks to the act that powerful men can still get away with sexual assault. Women are still there just to be sexual objects.

Where there is smoke, there is fire. I have a feeling that this will not be the last time that we will be hearing about the sexual misconduct of Justice Kavanaugh.

Thoughts On the Robert Mueller Announcement

During the Mueller Investigation and after the release of the report, there were many who were eager to speak of the report and the man whose name is on the report, Robert Mueller. The only person who did not speak was Mr. Mueller.

Earlier this week, that changed when he spoke briefly to the press.

When I see this video, I see a man who is elegant, educated, professional and respectful. I also see a man who is tired and ready to enjoy whatever time he has left on this earth. As a side note, he also stated at the end of the announcement that he is retiring.

As I spoke of in past blog posts, I agree Mr. Mueller’s statement. Though there is certainly smoke, there is not enough fire (depending on one’s point of view) to directly charge you know who.

If there was a way to speak to Mr. Mueller directly, I would thank him. It would have been easy to sit back and do nothing. But he chose to serve the American people and prove that justice is blind. Not even the President is above the law.

Your service to this country, Mr. Mueller, will never be forgotten. Enjoy your retirement.

New Randy Rainbow Video-“JUST IMPEACH HIM – Randy Rainbow Song Parody”

Impeaching a President or any politician is serious business. It requires unassailable proof that the accused has committed a crime. The problem in the US these days is that the answer to the question of if we should impeach you know who depends on who asks the question.

This morning, Randy Rainbow released his new video, “JUST IMPEACH HIM – Randy Rainbow Song Parody“.

I have to admit that I cannot identify the original song or the artist. That being said, this is the first Randy Rainbow song that I do not unilaterally agree with. Though I laughed (as I do with his previous songs), I have to admit that this song made me think.

While I agree that the actions of you know who are morally and politically questionable, impeachment should only occur when the evidence cannot be questioned or denied. The problem from my perspective is that this evidence either does not exist or is only known to certain people who are keeping it from the voting public.

Either way, until this evidence is made public, I cannot and will stand behind impeaching you know who.

Thoughts On Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Dancing And Rashida Tlaib’s Impeachment Comment

When dynamics shift in government and a new party or leader takes control, the party or leader that was previously in control has to get used to change, whether they like it or not.

Earlier this week, the new members of Congress were sworn in and already, there is controversy.

Members of the GOP are in uproar because a video new Congresswoman Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) dancing was released to social media. One commentator on Twitter labelled it as a high school-ish behavior. The irony of their social media pearls clutching moment is that the video was made when she was in high school.

The night after Representative Rashida Tlaib (D-Michigan) was sworn in, made the following comment to her supporters, expletive included:

“And I said, ‘Baby, they don’t,’ because we’re gonna go in there and we’re gonna impeach the motherf—–.”

While I would love to see you know who gone from office, I think that the Democratic leadership should not solely be focusing on impeachment, especially with the 2020 election not too far off. If they are to win the election next fall, they have to win the hearts and minds of the voters, especially those who still believe in you know who. By solely focusing on impeachment, this continues to prove that theory that they are out to take him down and therefore drive voters to support/vote for him.

The thing that I realize about this topic is that these women make the GOP nervous. They are minority women of color who are representing their communities for the first time and the GOP who are traditionally Caucasian, male, Christian and straight cannot get their heads around that fact.

America is changing. Those who have traditionally held power are no longer solely in charge and they have no way of handling except for shaming and ridicule.

I Hate To Say It, But We Should Not Talk About Impeachment, At Least For The Short Term

According to the American Constitution, a political leader at the federal level may be forced out of office via impeachment if he or she commits “treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors”.

Like many of you, I did not vote for a certain person in the 2016 Presidential Election and I have yet to agree or approve of the policies he has put into place. I also believe that the evidence that so far has been presented is legitimate and solid.

As much as I would love to see him out of office, I believe that for the short-term, we should not be discussing impeachment. My reasoning is the following:

  1. Unlike a certain President who shoots his social media mouth off at every turn, Robert Mueller and his team are only showing their hands when they have concrete evidence. Without concrete evidence, it proves that the Russia Investigation is indeed a witch hunt and a waste of tax dollars. This of course, feeds into the idea that  he is innocent and being persecuted for no reason.
  2. If he is impeached, then Mike Pence becomes President. From my perspective, Mike Pence would be a political nightmare.
  3.   Unless it is proved that this person has committed a crime, starting impeachment proceeding over political differences starts a dangerous precedent that would destabilize this country in ways that I dare not even consider.
  4. Impeachment subverts the will of the people, but again, that depends on how solid the proof is that a crime was committed.

Only time will tell if and/or when a certain person is removed from the highest political office in the land.  I only know that at this point in time, I believe that we should not be talking about impeachment until it proved without a shadow of a doubt that an impeachment offense was committed.
