That's the way that the law 'go'!


 (My new American Thinker post)

After game 6 of the 2011 World Series, former Rangers' manager Ron Washington tried to put a happy face on blowing a lead in the 9th, the 10th, and the game itself in the 11th.  He repeated that line about the strange things that happen on the field: “That's the way baseball go.”  Yes, some things are hard to explain.

At times like these, I check with Professor Jonathan Turley.  He always gives it to us straight.  This is what the professor said of the arrangement with Hunter Biden:   

There is reason to be suspicious. First, no one can explain why it took five years for the investigation of two minor tax counts and a gun allegation that could have been confirmed in a month.

Indeed, an IRS whistleblower alleged that Hunter was given preferential treatment and that the whistleblower’s team was removed from further work on the case by the Justice Department.  

Hunter also never faced any charges after videotaping himself engaged in interstate violations involving a host of prostitutes and drugs. That is now simply   material for his scrapbook.   There is a glaring omission of any charge under the Foreign Agents Registration Act despite the Justice Department using this charge freely against associates of former President Donald Trump like Paul Manafort.  However, again, it would not take five years to establish this crime (which was done in little time with Manafort). Hunter seems to have been simply given a pass on what was likely the greatest concern for the White House.   The most notable omission is the failure of any apparent investigation into the expanding scandal surrounding the influence-peddling operation of the Biden family.

Yes, that's the way that the law "go."

The problem here is twofold. First, too many feel that some go to jail while others get probation.  Fair or unfair, that's how people feel. I guess that watching former Secretary Clinton get away with a lot will make even the most idealistic of us a bit cynical. Second, the media has lost credibility and their coverage of the disgusting Russia-Trump episode has people turning off the TV sets or cancelling their subscriptions.

There is a great cartoon going around where a defense lawyer tells the judge that his client will plead guilty if he can change his name to Biden. It's very funny but it bothers me because that's not supposed to happen in the U.S.

Happy # 83 Justice Clarence Thomas

We say happy birthday to Clarence Thomas who was born on this day in Georgia in 1940.

Thomas was nominated by the first President Bush to replace the retiring Justice Marshall.  I remember the news conference when President Bush introduced him to the nation.  Thomas' story was wonderful and seemed like a great choice.    

Eventually Clarence Thomas was confirmed in October 1991:  52-48.   His nomination turned into a circus when Anita Hill accused him of sexual suggestions.

Over time, Thomas developed quite a reputation for conservative opinions.   Great Justice!

Hello summer and one of the best summer songs ever!


Hello everyone and welcome to summer!

What's the best way to say hello to summer?

I think that it's The Beach Boys. This is "Do it again", one of their many songs about summer:


A word about June 23






We remember June 23:

"Queen of country":    "We remember June Carter Cash, who was born on this day in 1929".

"Justice Thomas":    "We remember Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas who was born on this day in Georgia in 1940."

"Hall of Famer":    Carl Hubbell was born in Carthage, Missouri on this day in 1903.   He turned into one of the game's greatest pitchers: 253-164, 2.98 ERA & 260 complete games.

"The early Beatles":   "Stuart Fergusson Victor Sutcliffe was born in Edinburgh, Scotland on this day in 1940. He died in 1962 when the group was in Germany.   We remember him as one of the early Beatles."

"World War II series":    "Germany invades the USSR....with Barry Jacobsen".....click to listen.
