It’s always been a special day for me, because honoring our vets has
always held special meaning for me; it’s a lesson my parents instilled
very well, indeed. It was brought home to me, as I was recently looking
at pictures from a trip we made through the Gettysburg PA area some
years ago.

It’s a particularly meaningful thing, when you’re standing on that
field…. Something that goes well beyond the cold facts and figures about
who died from what company, how old they were, or even where they were
from. It’s more a feeling you get…. You can sense it… not unlike being
at Ground Zero in lower Manhattan, or visiting Arlington National
Cemetery. I’m told Omaha Beach, and Pearl Harbor and many other sites
are the same way. I’ve been at the funerals of firemen and policemen who
died in their line of duty, and that was also remarkably similar.

In each case, we’re dealing with places and concepts of death. But
death alone doesn’t do it; doesn’t create that solemn atmosphere that is
so unique to the above places. After all; there are lots of mass
casualty accidents have happened over the centuries and their sites are
well marked, and revered, or at least held apart, and yet, their impact
doesn’t approach that of an Iwo Jima or a Pearl.

Even under the shelter of the time that has passed since the events,
as you stand in each place, you can still feel it; Lives were lost there
that were willingly (And in the case of the civilian deaths at the
towers, unwillingly) sacrificed toward a higher ideal.

Our feelings and conclusions can be far different from what those
lost experienced. Yet, their lives and their sacrifices still count for
something. And the thing is, it doesn’t take much for us to out
ourselves in their mindset.

Think of it this way; Every single man who died at Gettysburg, at
Normandy, at Pearl and all the rest, has meaning for us because each of
them, had their own lives, just as we have our own lives. These people
loved, they laughed, they cried. They had a favorite food, a favorite
color, a particular bit of music, or of poetry stirred their souls, like
none other, just like we, ourselves. Every bit as much as you and I
love our lives, they loved theirs. Their lives were as precious to them,
as yours is to you. Their loss was as keenly felt by their loved ones
as yours would yours.

And yet, they gave their lives up, for something bigger..

….something they considered to be larger than themselves.

I have a neighbor, whose father just a few years ago needed a liver
transplant. This neighbor willingly gave up part of his liver to be
transplanted into his father. A noble action, certainly, commendable,
and impressive. But with all respect to my neighbor, the choice to do
that is comparatively easy to make. He knows and loves his father, and
the risks and sacrifices were fairly light by comparison.

How much more noble is a sacrifice of one’s life for people that one
will never meet? Well, the people we honor today, those in uniform
particularly, but some who were not, gave of themselves for the benefit
of people they would never know…. you and I, and countless others from
many nations. If not for their sacrifices, you’d not be reading this,
because I’d not have written it…. we’d be living in a very different
world, possibly, one not nearly as good to us as it has been.

That gift, that sacrifice, is what we memorialize today. Look upon
those actions, those sacrifices, and know what you’re seeing is
strength, courage, and nobility in measures that should not… can not, be
ignored. It must be honored by us all; it was made, after all for our
benefit.

Think about that as we deal with the solemn proceedings for their day.

So why are we chasing these ghosts?

Another situation where somebody who checks all the boxes gets away with crime.

The former top prosecutor in Baltimore, convicted of fraud for lying about financial hardship during the pandemic in order to buy a beach house with money from the federal government, will serve no prison time.

Marilyn Mosby, 44, was sentenced to 12 months of house arrest, 100 hours of community service and three years of supervised release Thursday, Erek Barron, United States Attorney for the District of Maryland announced.

No prison time??

Oh, of course. A black woman, a Democrat. I keep forgetting when those boxes are checked, you’re protected from the consequences of your actions.

Now, about Willis….

Look closely, here.

“The day after Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton to win the 2016 presidential election, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg took the bench wearing a black necklace with crystals. It was a piece she
typically wore to express her displeasure while reading a dissent from the bench. But Ginsburg, who had called Trump a faker ahead of the election and then apologized, had no dissents to read. . . . If you’ll notice, Justice Alito is not wearing a MAGA hat. In 2020, after RBG’s
death, The New York Times praised her sense of style.”

I don’t recall the left screaming for RBG to recuse herself.  Another Democrat double standard.

“And in the end, Piglet, all it took, was a 28 year old Catholic professional football placekicker to make the left remember what a woman is.”

We’ve already been over the question of whether or not the Department of Justice planted evidence to be used against Trump.

But now we have even more evidence of that manipulation.

This is breaking the law on two levels. Not only is it subverting the criminal justice system and the law but it is also election tampering. There’s simply no escaping that conclusion.

So the question becomes “are there consequences for falsifying evidence for political gain, or does the whole thing just get swept under the rug because orange man bad?”

Matt Margolis has an article up this worth reading entitled “Seinfeld is the hero we need now

Some of you will probably remember the following quote:

“You know what a hero is? Ninety-nine times out of a hundred, he’s somebody who’s tired enough and cold enough and hungry enough not to give a damn. I don’t give a damn. ”

I can’t speak to the question of whether or not Seinfeld is the hero we need right now, but I must say I find an awful lot of that quote and what Seinfeld’s been doing lately. He strikes me as somebody that has been spending an awful lot of time over the years trying to check all the politically correct boxes… And watching the results from the inside.

It’s obvious to me he’s hit the international “enough” line.

The irony is, he’ll be labeled in extreme right winger by the very people he’s been spending his entire professional life trying to placate.

Reminder:

They didn’t believe Juanita Broaddrick.
They didn’t believe Tara Reade.
They didn’t believe Ashley Biden.
They didn’t believe Lucy Flores.
They didn’t believe Vail Kohnert-Yount.
They didn’t believe Amy Lappos.
They didn’t believe D.J. Hill.
They didn’t believe Caitlyn Caruso.
They didn’t believe Ally Coll.
They didn’t believe Sofie Karasek.

BUT:

They believe Stormy Daniels, who literally had sex for a living.

They believe E. Jean Carroll that said on air that “rape is sexy”.

Textbook cognitive dissonance.

Blue no matter who, right Dems?

From Kyle Becker:

The Biden administration is now under investigation for ELECTION INTERFERENCE based on new evidence of illegal coordination between the Dept. of Justice and political prosecutors bringing charges against former President Donald Trump.

The DOJ has been instructed to hand over “activity and/or communications between Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, New York Attorney General Letitia James, Special Prosecutor Jack Smith or Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis related to the investigation or prosecution” of the former president in FOIA demands from @AGAndrewBailey.

“I am demanding the DOJ turn over communications relating to the illicit prosecutions of President Trump,” AG Bailey announced.

“This includes communications between the DOJ and Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg, New York AG Leticia James, and Fulton County DA Fani Willis.”

“Thanks to evidence that has come to light, my office has reason to believe Biden’s corrupt Department of Justice is the headquarters of the illicit prosecutions against President Trump,” he added.

There is evidence D. A. Alvin Bragg and D.A. Fani Willis, in addition to Special Counsel Jack Smith in both the classified documents case and the J6 case, have “selectively and vindictively” prosecuted cases against former President Donald Trump.

The Biden regime is carrying out the most blatant election interference campaign in the history of the country against the leading presidential candidate.

This must be stopped if Americans seek to live in a free country ever again.

I suggested it in a post-published just the other day the special outside Jack Smith in cooperation with the FBI and the doj tampered with evidence in the classified documents case.

Jack Smith has single-handedly all but guaranteed the re-election of Donald j Trump to the White house.

Watch:

Matt Margolis notes:

.Last month, Cannon unsealed a trove of new documents in the case that also revealed that an FBI agent had testified that the General Services Administration (GSA) was in possession of Trump’s boxes in Virginia before ordering Trump’s team to come get them. The same boxes that the GSA had been holding and ordered Trump’s team to retrieve ended up being the boxes that contained classified markings, raising questions about whether the Biden administration had set up Trump.


Gee, ya think?

Here we go again with another c I told you so moment. I said 6 years ago that the intelligence agencies were actively working against President Donald Trump on the pretext that he was a Russian spy or some such. Of course that narrative fell through but the CIA never stopped acting not that false narrative. The fact is they were probably the ones who started the false narrative in the first place.

This is treasonable stuff, folks.

Watch:

And by the way, does anybody remember how 17 different Intel agencies back to Hillary Clinton’s claim about how her mail servers were hacked by russia?

Remember when 51 Intel agents lied about Hunter’s Laptop being Russian Propaganda in order to help Joe Biden steal an election?

Yeah sure. Nothing to see here citizen… Move along
