Maybe she likes being first lady too much


(My new American Thinker post)

It's nice to see that I am not the only one in the country who is talking about First Lady Jill Biden and elder abuse.  It's hard for me to see the president of the U.S., and that's what he is, without wondering what his wife must think about all this.  Then I found this post by Stephen Kruiser:

During the campaign, I kept mentioning that Biden must not have anyone who really loves him. I was mostly talking about his wife, of course. The United States is being subjected to this misery because Jill Biden is power-hungry and wasn't in a position to grab any herself. She doesn't care how history remembers her husband's presidency.

She has no qualms whatsoever about seeing her husband humiliate himself in public as he did when his old buddy Barack came back to the White House and left him wandering around looking for a friend.

DOCTOR Jill is perfectly content to let Joe finish his long career falling apart on television just so she can have everyone in Washington suck up to her while she's keeping the evil teachers' unions in bed with the president of the United States.

Does Dr. Jill enjoy watching this?  I guess Air Force One must be really nice.

A normal lady would have said something to the Democrats who focused on Joe after the early debates proved that President Trump would easily defeat the likes of Beto, Warren, and Kamala.

Yes, she would have reminded them that Joe is not up to it, that he is old, not a man up to the pressures of the office.

She would have opposed the whole thing because she loved her husband too much to see the humiliating scenes we are watching on TV.

Maybe I'm just being unfair, another partisan who voted against Biden.  Honestly, I don't think so.  All I can tell you is that most wives would not enjoy their husbands being kept from the media by some bunny or listen to the press secretary correct everything he says into an open microphone, such as confusing Title 42 and the mask mandates.

Come on, Dr. Jill.  Is this worth it?

A word about April 23

On this day in 1954, rookie Henry, or Hank, Aaron,  hit # 1 off Vic Raschi of the Cardinals.  Aaron was the last of the Negro League players to play in the majors.   

We remember Hall of Fame pitcher Warren Spahn who was born on this day in 1921 in Buffalo, New York.  Spahn joined the Boston Braves in 1942 and moved to Milwaukee with the team for the 1953 season.   It was in Milwaukee that he got to play with Lew Burdette, Eddie Matthews and Henry Aaron.   They won the 1957 World Series and the 1958 NL pennant.  He retired with 363 wins, 63 shutouts and a 3.09 ERA. 

Roy Orbison, one of the all-time great rockers, was born on this day in 1936 in Vernon, Texas.  Most people remember him for "Pretty woman", a great # 1 song from 1964.    It also came back big with the soundtrack of the movie by the same name.   

We say happy birthday to the great British author.    We believe that he was born in Stratford-on-Avon on April 23, 1564.  No one knows for sure because birth records were not always reliable back.  We do know that it happened around this day in 1564.

The last player from the Negro League hit his first major league homer in 1954

(My new American Thinker post)

There are many angles to the Hank Aaron story.  He retired with 755 home runs and passed Babe Ruth in 1974.  He was an amazing player who was always around the top of the league in HRs, hits and batting average.  And he could play defense too.  

I finally got to see him play in 1971 when the Braves came to Milwaukee for an exhibition game.

We remember that Aaron hit his first home run off of Vic Raschi on April 23rd  in 1954

However, his greatest accomplishment is something that few people talk about.  Aaron was the last player from The Negro Leagues to play in the major leagues.   

I think that it's fitting that the man who broke the cherished home run record was the last player from the old Negro Leagues.  It was the perfect way to close a sad chapter and begin one where all Americans could play ball.

It was also landmark moment in the progress that we've made on civil rights.

Sadly, too many self appointed civil rights leaders promote victim-hood or don't want us to see the progress we've made.  Yet, the progress is all around us.   We see successful African Americans, from my sons' outstanding high school principal to the wonderful athletes who dominate sports to the growing number of entrepreneurs.

It's not perfect and indeed a work in progress.   But a lot of progress has been made.   

After all, the man who beat Babe Ruth's record was the last man who played in the Negro Leagues.
