THE WAY THINGS USED TO BE…

By J Gary DiLaura

Things used to make sense. It didn’t matter what party or color or religion…if someone was nuts, most everyone would agree. If, on the other hand, someone made sense when they spoke everybody would agree. Not anymore…oh, boy not any more. You can’t even tell your wife, “Pick me up a pair of jeans”, any more. I mean, she used to be able to pick up a pair of 38×30 blue jeans, wash them once and wear them for the next 5 years with a better and better fit. Now you either have to go with her, try on 4 or 5 pairs of the same freaking size and make, to find one that fits almost perfectly.

Nothing seems to be what it really is and I for one, hate it!

I didn’t agree with JFK on many issues but admired the man, his guts, and fearlessness and overlooked his flaws even though he was a Democrat. He believed in our Rule of Law, our Constitution and almost died defending it but he never backed away from a fight like most of his party does today!

I cannot remember any Congressman or Senator as door knob dumb as Maxine Waters (the old timer) and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (newly elected).Neither one of these two dumbbells should have ever been elected…what the hell has happed to a sense of reason? Cortez has no concept on how Congress works, what the Constitution is, what our Rule of Law is ,what the difference is between Socialism and our Constitutional Republic. She just said that Trump gave our military $700 billion and “they didn’t even ask for it”.

Years ago, no nominating committee would have ever approved Cortez to be a doorknob, let alone a Congresswoman…she may someday have the deciding vote on whether or not we should go to war? Think about that for a while! Waters is different, because she is from California and for a Californian…she is quite smart, sort of “the best they can muster up”!

So now we finally have a very business savvy, smart President who did the unthinkable…he was elected as the President of the United States in his first attempt at public office. How do you think that makes some career politicians feel? People like Joe Biden, Bill Clinton, Al Gore? They had to fight, raise money, drum up support, tuff it out through defeat, run, re-run and for some give it up, like Gore, when here comes Trump…successful, at pretty much everything he did in his life, including fixing things up that people like Clinton, Obama and Gore screwed up.

Well they can’t let another of Donald J Trumps successes go unchallenged, this time as President, without saying some of the dumbest things yet. Impeach 45, impeach Trump…and on and on, as if it’s a battle cry!

 He’s the duly elected President who has never committed an impeachable offense, and these “elected leaders” want to spend more time and tax payers money, trying to find an impeachable offense instead of doing the jobs they were elected to do…run the country and enforce our borders and defend our Rule of Law!

 To say, “It’s our duty” to investigate is to say that you can find what the former FBI Director Mueller, a team of high priced lawyers, several high ranking corrupt FBI Agents, a CIA Director, NSA Director several DOJ lawyers, a Fusion GPS and millions and millions of wasted dollars, and illegal wiretaps couldn’t find, in over 2 years…an impeachable or indictable offense committed by President Trump!!!

Look at what this guy accomplished with you fighting him every step of the way…imagine what “we” could accomplish if you worked with him; morons …I swear!

  • If he’s guilty then why are you so worried? Why does Trump whine and cry almost every day in a Tweet? If he’s innocent then what has he got to hide? As for Biden, (H) Clinton and Gore? Well Trump may have beaten them to the White House, but he’ll also beat them to a jail cell. And the investigation “hasn’t found anything in over two years”? It’s already got a bunch of guilty pleas and deals for immunity from lots of close Trump associates, like Cohen and Weisselberg, and if they were given deals and immunity then they must have had some jucy evidence on a much bigger fish to hand over…..
    And two years? The Iran Contra investigation ran for over three years. Whitewater over four. The Mueller investigation is just getting going.
    As for the good old days? In the good old days Republicans would have been apoplectic about a White House janitor being in the pocket of Russia, let alone the POTUS. Sen Joe McCarthy must be spinning in his grave.

    • Karl, Thank you for reading my column. OK I’ll bite, name the crime Donald Trump committed and if you’re so certain he’s guilty …I defy you to name the Title and Section of US Code he violated or the Section of Penal law if it’s a State offense and what state. When you find none of the wannabe prosecutors have named the specific crime ,take a hard look at what these “violent criminals” have plead guilty. Non are substantive crimes, none have anything to do with Russian Collusion, all are what some desperate Prosecutors use to “roll” mobsters and to try to pressure some one to do something to help them. For example, General Flynn talking to Russians before ,during or after the election is not a crime…he thought it was so he lied to Mueller who tricked Flynn. Then Mueller charged him with lying…the same trick his “bud” Comey used on Martha Stewart, another mobster…right? If you understood the law, what Justice is ,what are ethical investigative techniques, you would be outraged. If you were the victim of an illegal wiretap warrant, like Carter Paige, you would be outraged. I was involved in many Tittle 3 investigations and can tell you from a very substantial law enforcement career that the Paige FISA warrant is illegal and everything garnished therefrom is as well. What does your vast law enforcement experience tell you?

      • So if Trump hasn’t done anything wrong then what are you worried about? Let the investigation carry on and he’ll be okay, right? Surely someone as smart and knowledgeable as Trump wouldn’t be tricked into confessing to something he didn’t do? Or are you saying he’s no smarter than a typical mob boss?
        And why have so many people Trump hired been indicted, pleaded guilty or done a deal in return for immunity? Flynn? Cohen? Weisselberg? Papadopoulous? Manafort? Gates? Didn’t Trump say he’d hire “the best people”? What went wrong?
        And Flynn admitting to one charge of lying? That’s because he did a deal and cooperated, in return for getting off very lightly for one token charge and his son not being charged at all. To claim, as you are, that that was the only thing he did wrong is laughable. I’d be very very worried about what he has told Mueller. To get such a sweet deal he must have given them a lot….
        And your explanation doesn’t say a lot about Trump if he hired someone as National Security Adviser who could make such a stupid mistake and get prosecuted, does it? Hillary was investigated for years and managed to avoid any charges let alone prosecution or plea.
        Interesting that people are starting to discuss whether ex Presidents would still get SS protection in prison. The consensus seems to be that the SS would check the facilities and then let the prison handle it with maybe one or two SS on site. I dare say there are people already planning for this. The SS always like to plan ahead.
        As for the specific charges against Trump, well, we’ll all find out soon enough….
