I have listen to some of the three days, the House Managers have argued in the Senate for the impeachment of the President. Its mostly what they have said before but taking three days to say it over and over again. It seems like they feel they have the authority to tell the Senate that they need to finish doing their job for them. As in collecting information to use against the President. It also seems that the House Managers also want the senate to vote on what they deem necessary for their needs and what they believe to be true.
So far there have been ten amendments to the senate rules and all were tabled along party line votes. The amendments were to bring people and documents to the hearing to present evidence. This was suppose to be done in the House! But they rush to articles through and passed them also along party line votes to impeach. To do this without gathering the required evidence seems a bit short sighted and inept. And to do this while trying to impeach the President of the United States seems doomed to failure. But they pushed it through and passed it. Now they want the Senate to do their job for them. To what end? They know there is no proof for the generic terms of impeachment they passed. So maybe they are thinking that something may turn up in the new inquiry. Maybe they are just trying to tie up the President to keep him from doing anything else to make them look bad. To be honest who knows what they are thinking. I have heard rumors that they want to make the Republicans look bad to take more seats in the Senate. From where I sit, it may end up making the Democrats loose seats in the House. You can’t look this stupid and expect no one to notice.
China just celebrated its 70th anniversary this year. But it may not see another decade as it is today. The world is waking up to the communist country. The ruling class in China are trying to quell the unrest in Hong Kong with force. The people are resisting with riots and demonstrations. China has moved the army to the coast with Hong Kong. Things don’t look good for the people wanting the freedom they had under Great Briton.
China should look to history to see that communism has never stood the test of time. The leaders of China are either blind to the facts or they are ignoring them. Most likely they just don’t want to give up the power they have. But the people of China are watching Hong Kong and they will most likely not stay quiet for long.
China has moved to let some capitalism into its borders. But for the most part its state run or the state has the ability to step in and take over the business. People that don’t go along with the state soon disappear unless they are so successful that they can slip out of the country and to a nation that will give them some form of protection.
China is right now, the worlds second largest economy. With over a billion people it could easily be largest. The biggest thing holding China back is its leaders.
Last Friday the President authorized the armed forces to take out a terrorist. They found out the Iranian general a person that has been labeled a terrorist by the international body NATO, was flying into Iraq. They used a unmanned drone to hit his car and killed him and three other men riding with him.
A few days later, Iran fired ten to fifteen missles at U.S. air bases in Iraq. They failed to hit anything of importance or kill anyone at that time. EXCEPT! They somehow shot down a passenger plane from Ukraine. Killing 176 souls. Now you have to ask yourself did they target this plane by mistake? Did someone at the controls say I want to shot something. Did someone have a itchy trigger finger? Was the Russian anti aircraft system on automatic? We may never know as the Iranian government is being quiet about it all. Not even turning over the black boxes to investigators.
It would have been prudent to have picked up the phone and told the control tower to hold all flights for a couple of hours. Everything that happened that night makes Iran look like bumbling idiots. This is a military force the world is suppose to be afraid of? If I were flying over or to their country I would be.
Experts on both sides are going to pay attention to 2020 Democratic candidates and their stance on the Hyde Amendment, which bars federal funding for abortions except in cases of rape or incest or when the life of the person giving birth is at risk. THE PERSON? Why not the woman? Men can’t have babies. This is the political correctness that is another part of the problem we have but back to the abortion issue.
Americans don’t like the thought of killing children but that is exactly what abortion does. Why people can’t see that is beyond me. I think they do see it, it’s just that if having a baby is inconvenient for them this is the solution.
Today women and men can take multiple methods to prevent pregnancy. Most of them are free! So why do women not take control before sex? Why after the fact when they find out they are pregnant is abortion ok? This is not just a issue for women although they are the ones that have to carry the baby to term and in a lot of cases have to raise the child alone. The men have to stop thinking with their dicks and realize they have skin in the game also. If you help bring a child into this world your just as much responsible as the woman. Man up and take care of your child. If you don’t want kids take care of that before you have sex.
A 36 year old male and two females 20 and 18 got cought. My first thought was human smuggling. You can tell how tall the wall is and they had to rescue these three people from the top. People here in the US that say walls don’t work, I would say you don’t know what your talking about.

So here are some facts that will make a few people very angry!
The typical response from our friends on the left will be, “Yeah BUT”.
STATS ON GUN VIOLENCE
Interesting statistics. This jives with the research of Prof. Lott at the University of Chicago, who is a noted expert on gun laws and stats.
Here are some facts.
There are 30,000 gun related death s per year by firearms, and this number is not disputed. The U.S. population is 324,059,091 as of June 22, 2016. Do the math: 0.00925% of the population dies from gun related actions each year. Statistically speaking, this is insignificant! What is never told, however, is a breakdown of those 30,000 deaths, to put them in perspective as compared to other causes of death:
