This is a hodge-podge about debased funerals, corrupt investigations, stupid Leftists, Hollywood hate, and other stuff to amuse and dismay the reader.
ARTICLE BY THE BOOKWORM:
Regarding the obsequies for McCain, it’s clear that the Wellstone funeral was a warm-up. I’d like to think that ordinary Americans, rather than being moved politically by demagoguery over a dead body (demagoguery that same dead body planned for and invited during his last time on earth), will be impressed or whether they will be disgusted. And that’s all I have to say on the subject.
McCain’s seat is not a hereditary asset. Rumor has it that the Arizona governor is contemplating giving McCain’s seat to his daughter, the execrable Meghan, or to his meaningless (but nicely wealthy) cipher of a wife, Cindy.
This is an appalling idea. These Senate seats belong to the American people. They are not family sinecures or heirlooms. Whatever drives Governor Ducey’s decision-making about filling that seat, it better be for the good of Arizona and the Republicans who elected McCain, and not for the good of the McCain political dynasty.
Aretha Franklin’s funeral turns into a circus. Aretha Franklin was a woman of tremendous talent who, so far as I know, always comported herself with dignity during a long life in the public eye. I wonder what she would have made of her funeral.
In the seats of honor were an antisemitic, anti-White, anti-Christian, homophobic madman and all-around hater (Farrakhan), an illiterate race hustler and antisemite (Sharpton), a somewhat literate race hustler and antisemite (Jackson), and a credibly accused rapist and serial sexual assaulter (Bill Clinton) who compulsively ogled an under-dressed entertainer in an obvious and unseemly fashion.
Bill was not alone when it came to sexually compulsive behavior. Bishop Charles Ellis III one of the pastors at the funeral seemingly spent a minute groping singer Ariana Grande (the same woman Bill ogled).
The viewing of the body revealed a raddled old harridan who claimed she had what it took to govern our nation but who is, in fact, so physically compromised she can no longer climb stairs on her own.
Giving a eulogy was a Georgetown sociology professor, Michael Eric Dyson, whose oozing Trump Derangement Syndrome suddenly gushed out in a burst of ghetto language attacking the sitting president. His verbal diarrhea was based upon that fact that Trump stated (accurately) that Franklin, whom he paid for her singing services at his hotels, “worked” for him. In Donald’s world (the real world), where talent is rewarded with well-remunerated employment, that was high praise indeed. Dyson, however, saw things in a different way:
“And then this orange apparition had the nerve to say she worked for him!” Dyson told the audience. “You lugubrious leech! You dopey doppelgänger of deceit and deviance! You lethal liar, you dim-witted dictator, you foolish fascist!”
“She ain’t work for you!” he exclaimed. “She worked above you! She worked beyond you! Get your preposition right!”
“Then he got the nerve to say he gonna grab it!” Dyson continued. “That ain’t what Aretha Franklin said – I’mma give you something you can feel.”
“Like the brothers in the streets say, tap lightly! Like a woodpecker with a headache!” he concluded.
It didn’t make it better that the emotionally incontinent Dyson used the same solemn occasion to lambast the Obamas:
Dyson did not hold back from criticizing the Obamas for not showing up to the funeral however.
“She was about transforming the existence of black America!” Dyson said of Franklin. “Now negroes scared to say they black!”
“Scared to show up at a too black place!” he exclaimed to loud applause. “That’s why some black folk aren’t here today. They sendin’ letters, they don’t wanna get up in this blackness!”
“They don’t want to feel the nasty power of this blackness!” he continued. “We are black in Detroit! We don’t care! Take your shoes off! Dip in the water! Get baptized!”
Keep in mind, please, that this man teaches young people at one of the most prestigious universities in America.
Interestingly, another voice that deviated from the normal eulogies dared the black community to repair itself:
Pastor Jasper Williams launched a scathing criticism of black-on-black violence on Friday at Aretha Franklin’s funeral, where he delivered the eulogy.
“It amazes me how it is when the police kills one of us, we are ready to protest, march destroy innocent property. We’re ready to loot, steal, whatever we want. But when we kill 100 of us, nobody says anything. Nobody does anything,” Williams said.
“Black on black crime, we’re all doing time. We are locked up in our minds. There’s got to be a better way. We must stop this today. Think down, look down, walk down, talk down, act down — most times we are low down. Where is your soul?” the pastor continued.
“If you choose to ask me today, do black lives matter? Let me answer like this: no, black lives do not matter; black lives will not matter; black lives ought not matter; black lives should not matter; black lives must not matter until black people start respecting black lives and stop killing ourselves — black lives can never matter.”
Interestingly, of all the speakers, Williams was the man whom Franklin chose to give her eulogy. In other words, amidst all the ugly noise and deviant people at her funeral, the one person Franklin definitely wanted there believed that black well-being lies in black hands, and requires them to embrace traditional values.
Mueller’s pit bull violates Professional Conduct 101. Thanks to Bruce Ohr’s testimony, we know that Andrew Weissmann, the attorney known as “Mueller’s pit bull,” was part of the whole discredited FISA application. In other words, the same person investigating Trump for alleged Russian collusion was at all times privy to the fact that the whole basis for the Russia collusion — the Steele dossier — was an unveriable hit piece paid for by Clinton collusion with the Russians. Wow!
Without delving too deeply into the minutiae of the Rules of Professional Conduct governing attorneys in federal and state practice, I’d just like to repeat here one apropos rule from the ABA’s Model Rules of Professional Conduct:
Rule 3.7 Lawyer As Witness
(a) A lawyer shall not act as advocate at a trial in which the lawyer is likely to be a necessary witness unless:
(1) the testimony relates to an uncontested issue;
(2) the testimony relates to the nature and value of legal services rendered in the case; or
(3) disqualification of the lawyer would work substantial hardship on the client.
(b) A lawyer may act as advocate in a trial in which another lawyer in the lawyer’s firm is likely to be called as a witness unless precluded from doing so by Rule 1.7 or Rule 1.9.
The media is dancing fast to deal with info about the FBI and the DOJ. Watching the virulently anti-democratic (but very pro Democrat) MSM try to insulate its Chose Ppeople from harm is getting funny. Here you can see what the New York Times tried to sell versus what the facts are (a hat tip goes to this tweet):
