Hypocrisy Or Fraud?

Wednesday, November 18, 2020

For over seven months Democrat leaders have slammed Republicans over their response to the pandemic. That includes anyone else that does not bow to this mandate or that restriction. But the actions of many of these leaders, members of their families and news celebrities have been anything but compliant or models for the rest of us.

With a current rising rate of infections, one of the most outspoken and restrictive leaders, California Governor Gavin Newsom, was caught at a large gathering birthday party recently. Oh yeah, he wasn’t wearing a mask.

Since getting caught with his mask down, Newsom “apologized.” Is he just sorry he got caught? Then two days ago he enacted the strictest of regulations on 41 of the state’s 58 counties and is said to be considering a curfew. I wonder if the counties without the severe restrictions include his favorite eateries?

Naughty Newsom isn’t the first progressive to get caught. There are too many to list, but here’s a few: Virginia Governor Northam, no stranger to controversy, was parading around Virginia Beach mask-less after telling Virginians to wear masks; New Mexico Governor Grisham ordered store closures then personally ordered jewelry requiring a store owner to open up; Nancy Pelosi had to know of salon closures but went to have her hair done requiring a shop to open; the Chicago mayor did the same thing after ordering the closures.

Illinois Governor Pritzker’s wife violated her husband’s rigid stay-at-home order to party at an illegally-opened bar. Her behavior was a bad example but when questioned, his behavior revealed a pompous arrogance and desire to cover up what was done rather than be contrite.

Then there’s the saga of Michigan Governor Whitmer’s husband caught trying to use his status to pressure a marina owner to launch his personal boat before Memorial Day violating his wife’s order. Her response when caught, was not to be embarrassed but to say it was a joke. Wasn’t Whitmer one of the harshest critics of Trump being a positive role model?

These officials along with CNN host Chris Cuomo, reveal so much about how they view us. Restrictions are for the deplorables and not them. They are no different than the once powerful royals flaunting their wealth, power and arrogance. So when does hypocrisy morph into outright fraud? And aren’t these are the same people who want to run the country?

The Fight Begins

We didn't choose this. We didn't want this. This wasn't the plan. The 2020 election didn't turn out the way most people expected. In Hamilton County, voters overwhelmingly chose to keep Donald Trump and his America First agenda, which has been shown to work. They chose his unity over Joe Biden’s division, his results over Biden’s inaction in 47 years. Like it or not, Donald Trump ... (click for more)

We had a strict rule at our house in my childhood that whenever there was a festive dinner of any type, politics were never allowed to be broached nor discussed, and the only time religion was ever mentioned was during the blessing itself.
