Joe in Wonderland

 


(My new American Thinker post)

Yesterday, President Biden said this:  

Biden vowed, if more Democrats are elected to Congress on November 8, he would push for legislation that will codify abortion rights into law. 

'Congressional Republicans are doubling down on their extreme positions,' the president said. 

He went on to say:   

'The first bill that I will send to the Congress will be to codify Roe v. Wade. And when Congress passes it, I'll sign it in January -- 50 years after Roe was first decided as the law of the land. Together we'll restore the right to choose for every woman in every state in America.'

And he ended his remarks with a call for people to vote. 

'You care about the right to choose then you gotta vote. That's why these midterm elections are so critical,' he said.

'So vote, you gotta get out the vote. We can do this if we vote, folks.'

He's wrong.  The Supreme Court sent the issue back to the states.  It will be settled in every state legislature not the U.S. Congress.  Besides, no so called "codify" law will get 60 votes in the U.S. Senate.  

If President Biden wants to "federalize" abortion or establish "reproductive rights" then he will have to amend the U.S. Constitution.  However, that is not going to happen. You need three-quarters of the states and that is not going to happen either.

So where do we go from here?  We will wait for states to settle the issue and move on.  My guess is that most states will settle on an abortion law with a window of 10-15 weeks and the prohibition of late-term procedures.  That's where the country is!

Why is President Biden giving a speech like this?   It's all about turnout and recent polls confirm it.  The polls are moving in the GOP direction and the chances of a "blowout" are more likely than ever.  Abortion will not play a major role at a time when most women are alarmed every time they are buying groceries for their families.

So President Biden's magic carpet ride will take him back to The White House and the reality that most Democrats don't want him to run in 2024.

Happy # 53 Juan Gonzalez

We say happy birthday to Juan Gonzalez who was born on this day in Puerto Rico in 1969.

He played with the Rangers from 1991 to 1999.  Juan was an amazing hitter and a key component of the Rangers' divisional titles in '96, '98 and '99 plus winning the AL MVP in 1996 & 1998.  Gonzalez' power 
totals in Texas were amazing:   296 HR & 1059 RBI from 1991 to 1999.    In other words, Juan was one of the best run producers of the 1990's. 

Gonzalez was traded to Detroit after the '99 season.  He was never the same player due to injuries and other issues.   
Where is Juan now?  He has declined invitations to Rangers' events and kept a low profile.

Happy # 85 Juan Marichal

We say happy birthday to Juan Marichal, one of the greatest pitchers in major league history.   

Marichal broke with the Giants in 1960 pitching a shutout against the Phillies.   He went on to pitch 14 seasons with San Francisco:  238 wins, 2.84 ERA and 244 complete games.    

Overall, he won 243 games after finishing with Boston in 1974 and LA in 1975.

In 1963, Marichal and Warren Spahn of the Braves locked into one of the greatest pitching duels in major league.    I wrote about it here:  The day Marichal and Spahn took work ethic to a higher level.

I finally had a chance to see Marichal when he played for Boston in 1974.  He was an old veteran but still had that magical leg kick.   it was a real treat to say that I saw him pitch even at the end of his marvelous career.

Marichal was selected to The Hall of Fame in 1983.
