Homer Simpson William Lawrence Sr Omnibit 11-14-19

Homer Simpson with his large hands is a major character in Nathanael West’s classic novel Day of the Locust. What’s particularly strange about it is that the novel was written in 1939 and has nothing to do with Springfield.

Impeachment Shows Fear Desperation

Impeachment Shows Fear Desperation — Fear is the only explanation we can imagine for the Democrat Party’s bizarre attempt to impeach President Trump.

Did the President break the law by using 9/11 icon and famed mob fighter Rudy Giuliani to communicate with other nations? FDR didn’t when he bypassed career diplomats and used Harry Hopkins, so no.

Did he break the law by asking the Ukrainians to investigate the Biden crime family’s corruption in that country? How can someone charged with enforcing the law — that would be the President — break the law by investigating lawbreaking and corruption? He can’t.

Was it a Prime Directive thing in which he interfered with the development of the Planet of Ukraine? Leaving aside that the Prime Directive is not US law, he didn’t do that as per the transcript of his call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Anyway, former Vice President Joe Biden boasted about doing exactly that and has yet to be charged.

Keep at it Rudy.

So if President Trump has been diligently doing the tasks to which the Constitution obliges and did not commit any high crimes and misdemeanors, why are the Democrats trying to impeach him? Why not merely vote him out next year as has traditionally been done by opposing parties especially when the incumbent is unpopular as they allege?

Why are the Deep State bureaucrats swarming out of hiding to help the Democrarts? Why has the establishment media taken off its false mask of objectivity and joined in?

Can you say fear? Desperation? They are the only things that make sense.

U.S. Attorney John Henry Durham and Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz are expected at any moment to release damning reports that will lead to criminal charges against high ranking Obama Administration personnel. Some think those indicted may include Obama’s FBI Director James Comey and CIA Director John Brennan.

Could it go even further? Bill? Hillary? Members of the media? Members of Congress? Is that why Adam Schiff seems afraid?

Will it go beyond violations of law enforcement standards, false swearing and wiretapping? Could it include treason? Murder?

Why was Attorney General William Barr recently in Italy? Why was Joseph Mifsud reported to have been kidnapped in that country in 2017?

Did you see what Paul Gosar (R-AZ) spelled out in tweets yesterday? Maybe today he can spell out “His name was Seth Rich.”

You explain the logic of these hearings.

Why the panic?

Answer to yesterday’s puzzle: Today we are afraid of simple words like goodness and mercy and kindness. We don’t believe in the good old words because we don’t believe in good old values anymore. And that’s why the world is sick.

Erno Goldfinger William Lawrence Sr Omnibit 11-12-19

Many might know that Ian Fleming used the name of a Philadelphia ornithologist for his super spy James Bond. Less might know that he used the name of Erno Goldfinger, a British real estate developer, for his super villain Auric Goldfinger.

The real James Bond was fine with Fleming’s choice. Erno, well, not so much. He took it to court.

Fleming just said that he’d change the name to Gold(something else) and Erno dropped the matter. Fleming’s publisher paid Goldfinger’s legal costs though and gave him six free copies of the book. He should have asked they be autographed.

Walking Florence On A Warm Autumn Evening

Walking Florence On A Warm Autumn Evening

John W. Gilmore

Choosing overnight accommodations are always difficult online. The pictures only tell half the story. The reviews are often blazingly good or horrible with nothing in between.  If the price is reasonable sometimes competing motels and hostels report that the place has bed bugs in order to turn the guests away, which makes the choices even more difficult.

Despite this, in October we booked an overnight stay in a very small hostel in Florence, Italy that was very close to the most popular sites and near a more expensive hotel that we stayed in on a former trip.  Albergo Paola was only 65 dollars a night and in the center of the city, but had a shared bathroom and shower with very few amenities and no elevator, according to the reviews.  After a long night of flying it was a great relief to arrive in the morning and find a warm soft bed minust bedbugs, and an elevator that wasn’t supposed to exist according to one of the negative reviews, within walking distance of the main transit center.

We took a nap in the afternoon and awakened early evening.  The sun hadn’t set yet so we decided to take a walk. The city wasn’t as crowded as the last time we were there. It wasn’t the tourist season. Nothing was planned so we wandered where we wanted, walking through the winding alleys paved with well set cobblestones (much better than the clunky ill fitting ones we find in the oldest parts of the US).  On both sides of the narrow streets and allies there were small hotels, shops, stores and restaurants, no boarded up places and nothing broken down.  We wove our way through the small alleyways of central Florence, marveling as we came out of the small streets into wide avenues lined with upscale shops.  We knew we were not in Philadelphia anymore just by walking through the city, looking at the shop windows, the way the stones were laid on their cobblestone streets, and the architecture, made it apparent. Everything was classy, but very humane including the little classic scooters shooting around here and there on the small cobblestone streets.  

It was just a regular day for them.  People were making their way to and from work on a Friday evening.  A group of teenagers meeting downtown laughed as they gathered for a Friday night adventure. Traffic was heavy, but moving, on the main thoroughfares.  We walked along them until we reached the main tourist attractions. The streets were roped off with minimal traffic in places like the Piazza San Lorenzo where you will find El Duomo, one of the churches that was one of the greatest architectural feats of its time in Europe.   It was a work of art itself, not only because of its construction, but because of the beautiful artwork by the great Italian artists of the Renaissance it contained.

From there we made our way to the Piazza Della Signoria.  A large open space where people meandered in the evening sun, talking and observing the artwork of great people like Michael Angelo, a replica of the famous statue of David, a large statue of Neptune riding his chariot in the center of a fountain, a large overhang where many statues honoring the myths of Roman Heroes, and even a celebration of Leonardo Da Vinci with a tree enclosed in a tetrahedron which Da Vinci understood as  the secrets of the universe, encoded in geometry.

Eventually we came to a restaurant along a narrow cobblestone street that was empty.  We were seated quickly on a patio overlooking the street.  Soon after the restaurant filled up with regulars who were a mixture of people who lived in Italy but who had moved from Canada or the US, or people on extended vacations.  As in most restaurants in Italy, the food was beautiful, fragrant, and tasty.

 They offered five courses but we only took three.  No GMO breads or vegetables.  The tomatoes and tomato sauces actually tasted like ripened tomatoes and was full of herbs and spices; no holding back on salt or seasons there, or the rejection of butter or fat that came as a result of the cholesterol scare we went through in the United States for almost 30 years.  The food was fresh, hormone free and natural by law.  We could taste that it was more healthy as if our bodies remembered how real food tasted in the US many years ago.  With stomachs full we returned to our small room thinking that it might be hot because of its lack of air conditioning.  It actually turned out to be a bit cool as the temperature went down when the sun dipped below the horizon, and we awakened the next morning refreshed and ready for the next leg of our journey to Tuscany.    

GOP Had Good Election Night?

GOP Had Good Election Night? — Matthew J. Brouillette, who is founder, president and CEO of Commonwealth Partners Chamber of Entrepreneurs, Inc, has a column at The Hill saying that Nov. 5 was actually pretty good for the Republicans in Pennsylvania.

Or MAGA anyway.

Megan King won a state-wide race for a seat on state Superior Court — despite a long wait for Philly votes to be tallied. More significantly six counties, went from Democrat to Republican.

The flipping to Democrat of the century-long Republican strongholds of Chester and Delaware counties made the news but these places had not been bastions of conservatism for a long time, and Delaware County, maybe never. Its congressional representatives included Bob Edgar and Joe Sestak after all.

Check out Matt’s column.

The long wait for the Philly votes in the state race does not give us something to look forward to next November. Another observation is that the top Superior Court vote-getter was Democrat Daniel D. McCaffery, the only man in the race. We suspect it was due to gender-based voting. Call it sexist but we’ve noticed the same thing work to the lady’s advantage when she was the only representative of her sex on the ticket.

MAGA is not about identity politics. It’s about putting the citizen first and keeping promises. Sex, race or anything else is irrelevant.

It’s what makes it different than the other side. The globalists and the socialists of whatever party seek and need division. They use, sex, race and anything else to cause it. It is their ticket to power.
