Mississippi’s First!

Closing Thought–22Mar21

My state of Mississippi s not first in many good things….and this is just yet another first in the bad column.

My state along with Texas were the first states to fully open….a decision I think was unwarranted for there was little good news around the pandemic…..and since the announcement my part of the state, the Gulf Coast has the state’s first South African variant……

State Health Officer Dr. Thomas Dobbs said a resident of Harrison County on the Mississippi Coast contracted the strain, which is believed to be more infectious. There have been more than 140 cases of the variant detected in at least 25 states.

Dobbs says the discovery of the South African variant in Mississippi is “a strong reminder that we are not remotely out of this (pandemic) and we still need to exercise some basic caution.” He advised mask-wearing and not gathering in large groups.

Sound advice….but since Mississippi is a deep Red state scientific evidence means nothing to the politicians…..it is more important to change the news to take away from all the failings of the state government.

ME?

I continue to wear my mask and social distance…..I refuse to let someone moron with the IQ of a garden slug infect me with their stupidity.

Be well….Be safe….

Make Them Pay!

I have made my thoughts known on how I feel the insurrectionists should be handled….but it never hurts to be redundant.

The Justice Department is tracking down the participants in the insurrection of 06 January…..my thoughts are make the bastards pay for their actions….

Looks like the charge of sedition is in the works for those low IQ parasites on our republic….

Sedition charges could very well be leveled against some suspects in the Jan. 6 attack on the US Capitol, according to the federal prosecutor who led the Justice Department’s probe into the riot until recently. Michael R. Sherwin spoke to 60 Minutes Sunday, as reported by the New York Times, the Washington Post, and Reuters. “I personally believe the evidence is trending toward that, and probably meets those elements,” Sherwin said of sedition, or conspiring to overthrow the government. The DoJ does not often bring such a charge, but Sherwin said the evidence gathered so far seems likely to meet the bar, for at least some suspects. “I believe the facts do support those charges. And I think that, as we go forward, more facts will support that,” he said. Sherwin has promised to pursue sedition charges since first announcing a task force to probe the attack.

The federal government last brought sedition charges in 2010, against members of a Michigan militia who were ultimately acquitted. Sedition charges can be used against people who forcefully attempt “to prevent, hinder or delay the execution of any law of the United States,” and prosecutors have accused some Capitol suspects of trying to put a stop to the electoral college certification process. More than 400 people have so far been charged, hundreds of them with trespassing, more than 100 with assaulting officers, and a handful (including members of groups including Proud Boys and Oath Keepers) with conspiracy to obstruct Congress. Sherwin, the former acting US attorney in Washington, says just about 10% of the cases so far involve far-right conspiracies and schemes. Sherwin, who witnessed the violence himself, stepped down from leading the probe Friday.

BRAVO!

Try these in-bred morons…..jail them and heavy fine them.

Do not let any of them off the hook for ANY reason!

They deserve NO quarter.

To Revere The Constitution

My thoughts on the US Constitution….will be writing Part Two on the Originalist interpretation of the Constitution and why it could be a problem in the making……chuq

Gulf South Free Press

There are a lot of BS spread by politicians about our Constitution….and now I have seen an article that gives five reason it should be revered…..I will add my thought after each reason….

The Constitution is an amazing document…..but I think that since it is full of 18th century thinking that no longer applies in the 21st then it is time to bring the document into the present…..

This article written by Michael Warren for realclearpublicaffairs.com and his five reason for this revere thinking are:  My thoughts will be in parentheses…..

1). A Written Constitution. Nearly all scholars agree that the Constitution was the first written document that established a major nation’s government. For thousands of years, mankind had been ruled by some combination of fear, force, custom, and tradition. Having a written document that laid out the powers of government and the duties of the representatives of “We…

US Vs North Korea

Four years ago when the other guy was president….the situation with North Korea was all rain bows and lollipops….hugs and love letters….and now those of fantasy are gone.

Since Biden has been elected president….the chest thumping and rhetoric has changed…..but not the tactics.

Since Biden became president he has tried to take a hard line with North Korea…..to which a response has been issued by Kim’s sister…..

For the first time, a high-level regime official in North Korea has addressed remarks directly to President Biden. The warning message took issue with the US and South Korea’s joint military drills, which began March 8, the Japan Times reports. “We take this opportunity to warn the new US administration trying hard to give off (a gunpowder) smell in our land,” Kim Jong Un’s powerful sister, Kim Yo Jong, said. “If it wants to sleep in peace for (the) coming four years, it had better refrain from causing a stink at its first step.” Pyongyang says the drills are “rehearsal for invasion,” but the US and South Korea say the drills, which were scaled down due to the COVID-19 pandemic, are “defensive” in nature and don’t include field training.

Meanwhile, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin made their first trip abroad, discussing North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs during talks in Tokyo and planning for similar discussions Wednesday in South Korea. The US continues to await a response from North Korea after weeks of attempts at making diplomatic contact, the BBC reports. The Biden administration continues to review former President Trump’s North Korea policy, and plans to unveil its policy in the coming weeks, a senior State Department official tells CNN.

The US decided to answer with strong statements….

North Korea conceded Thursday that the US had attempted to establish contact between the two governments. The Biden administration sent emails and tried several ways to deliver telephone messages, even involving a third country. But the Americans’ effort was nothing but a “cheap trick,” a foreign ministry official said, to buy time while the US tried to sway public opinion. “What has been heard from the US since the emergence of the new regime is only lunatic theory of ‘threat from North Korea’ and groundless rhetoric about “complete denuclearization,'” Choe Son Hui said. She also criticized the US for keeping sanctions against her country, Reuters reports, and for conducting military drills with South Korea.

“We don’t think there is need to respond to the US delaying-time trick again,” Choe said in a statement, per the AP. “We have already declared our stand that no US contact and dialogue of any kind can be possible unless the US rolls back its hostile policy toward” North Korea. Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin are in South Korea, where Blinken told Foreign Minister Chung Eui-yong the US will work with his nation and other allies to get North Korea to denuclearize. It’s the first time the US secretaries of state and defense have met with their South Korean equivalents in five years. Blinken and Austin had similar talks in Japan before traveling to Seoul.

Now the Pentagon has joined the chest thumping…..

Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin warned Thursday that American forces are ready to “fight tonight,” in response to North Korea slamming drills resuming between the US and South Korea.

The US and South Korean forces have resumed military drills after pausing the exercises more than a year ago over coronavirus concerns.

“Our force remains ready to ‘fight tonight,’ and we continue to make progress toward the eventual transition of wartime Operational Control to a [Republic of Korea]-commanded, future Combined Forces Command,” Austin said.

Tit for tat rhetoric…..chest thumping accomplishes nothing…..

Stop the war cries and let diplomacy step in.

Diplomacy….that means let South Korea take the lead and we need to advise and stand back…..

The U.S. and South Korea have reached two agreements about the near-term future of the alliance, the Biden administration announced before the recent meeting in Seoul. First, the two governments worked out a new cost-sharing arrangement for the extensive U.S. military presence on the Korean Peninsula. And second, Washington and Seoul assented to suspend many of their annual joint military drills.

The latter is a smart move. It could well lower tensions and make space for useful diplomacy with North Korea, which regards the drills as practice for invasion and often responds with its own provocations in turn. The value of the cost-sharing arrangement is more difficult to assess. On the one hand, its settlement may allow more important diplomatic matters to move to the forefront in the relationship, which is to the good. But this deal also represents a recommitment to counterproductive U.S. dominance of inter-Korean relations, which serves neither U.S. interests nor the cause of peace.

Time For South Korea to Take the Lead on North Korea

Since South Korea has the most to lose and/or gain….they should take the lead on any negotiations.
