Cab, please!

Sitting for his portrait, King George III asked what would George Washington do after winning independence. Would he make himself king? The American painter reported that Washington was returning to his farm. “If he does that,” the incredulous monarch said, “he will be the greatest man in the world.” The second greatest act in American history was John Adams catching a horse-drawn hansom cab for home from the White House after his defeat for a second term.

Some of our friends (for they ARE our friends) were quick to say that anyone expressing criticism of Donald Trump is guilty of treason. They cannot believe anyone would vote against Dear Leader and will justify any retribution in His Name. These people scare us.

Elected with a minority of the national vote four years ago, little attempt was made to woo Trump critics. Instead, they must be rendered as non-persons. Trump’s true believers rewrote history to declare (for one example) Vietnam hero John McCain had been a traitor almost since birth. And we wonder why Trump lost Arizona, which elected McCain eight times.

Insane conspiracies

Many who cheered Trump’s principled roll back of oppressive administrative rules now call for martial law! In so doing, they take their cue from newly pardoned general Mike Flynn. Do we replace the Twelve Days of Christmas with Seven Days in May December?

“The idea that the U.S. military would oversee a new nationwide presidential election — ordered under martial law by President Donald Trump — is “insane in a year that we didn’t think could get any more insane,” a defense official tells Military Times.”

In such anti-democratic fever swamps bloom Sidney Powell’s poisonous claim that Hugo Chavez jiggered Dominion voting machines. Have we become Branch Dividians?

Martial law

We get that there were irregularities in elections in many states — ever-changing, last-minute, loosie-goosie rules implemented by Democrats under cover of Covid 19. We understand that declaring “indefinite confinement” as an excuse for casting an absentee ballot skirts the law. It must be fixed. But the vote was real. Is the cure — negating those votes — worse than the disease? Do such votes rise to the level of corruption of, say, voting the dead? Do we punish the mother or the abortionist?

Death threats have consequences

Justice Brian Hagedorn of the Wisconsin Supreme Court honored his campaign vow to apply the law as written, not as he may wish it to be. (More here.) Over at RightWisconsin, James Wigderson writes:

The Wisconsin Supreme Court decided 4-3 that the campaign of President Donald Trump has to start their lawsuit at the circuit court level rather than directly in front of our state’s highest court. … Hagedorn noted … that the law clearly states that election cases must begin at the circuit court level. The statute itself reads:

“Within 5 business days after completion of the recount … any candidate, or any elector when for a referendum, aggrieved by the recount may appeal to circuit court.

The Supreme Court does have the option to take original jurisdiction, so perhaps Hagedorn is reading the law too literally. We are up against a tight timeline. But some of our friends have suggested that the justice “DESERVES TO BE SHOT.”

Blaska has been on the receiving end of that kind of incitement to violence for opposing the social justice warriors degrading the public square and Capitol Square — to the point of summoning the police. We argue that the exhortations of Freedom Inc. provided cover for the crazies who destroyed Downtown Madison.

Blaska’s Bottom Line — That kind of irresponsible logorrhea does not sit well with us, no matter the politics. There are worse fates than Joe Biden (which would be compounded by losing the Senate in Georgia).

Do the Brandi Graysons of the Right
want to bring Afghanistan to America?

    “Batman” , Get in the corner; you are not MY “alpha” . “Yes, no violence , no engineered “racial/civil-war”, no proxy , STAGED arab spring in the US. BUT, yes, Accountabilty for criminal activity, subterfuge , theft, and coercion, in courts of law. “Nip it in the bud.” and carry on.

    Nice imagination you got there Mo. How’s about mercilessly crushing Antifa thugs and any similar anarchists and watch the ripple effect. Coalesce against wimpy College admin stooges along with students who attempt to stifle free expression of thought and speech, etc., etc.
    All very attainable goals with some organization.
    I’ll leave the race war up to you since you brought it up.
    I agree on accountability, a lot of people are uttering the identical sentiment across social media platforms but no one explains how to do it.

    P.S. how do you know I’m not your alpha. I think maybe I am…

        You seem a bit more angry than usual this morning Mo. Did Batman bruise that massive ego of yours by disagreeing with one of your contentions?

        Mo, you seem terribly disconnected from Jesus because if you did walk with Him you would not be such a testy little fella. Perhaps a part-time Christian?

        You declare the grinding long term terribly expensive process of suing is the answer to our present (asinrightnow) situation. Might want to rethink that some more after you calm down.

        And btw; there are several ways to crush Antifa/anarchists and organize against the cancel culture sweeping the land all of which can be accomplished in a fraction of the time that utilizing the courts would. Not saying there isn’t utility in lawsuits but pedo-jo and the kameltoe may by out of office before litigation is resolved.

    All kind of business is conducted on golf courses and knowing what workaholic Trump is one can figure he utilizes that time very constructively.
    Paris Accord is just about redistribution of wealth. That and several other reasons make getting out a very good thing for America. Another reason that Trump is the Orange Master.

      Agreed about the Paris Treaty. It’s nice from a collaborative / public relations aspect, but that’s about it. Being the globalist he is, of course Biden likes it.

      Libs, RINOS, and Never-Trumpers not only go out of their way to find fault with Trump, they manufacture it.
