President, legal citizens need legislative protection

Liberal ideologues are fond of saying no one is above the law while breaking their own congressional rules and deflecting attention away from the law-breaking of their partisans.

They decry interference with elections but are interfering with the 2020 elections by supporting a bogus impeachment process and supporting undoing the results of the 2016 presidential election. While the congressional hearings are ongoing, New Jersey, as well as 12 other states, has given driver's licenses to illegal aliens, further enabling interference with the 2020 elections.

I encourage our congressional representatives to stand with the president whose election was a referendum by the sovereign citizens of the United States. I further advise them to push for an exhaustive trial in the Senate so that elected officials who use their office for financial gain for themselves and their families will be exposed. Unless all the facts come out, no consequences for this bogus impeachment charade will be realized.

In addition, I request that they sponsor a bill to protect the rights of legal citizens.

Postal employees deserve special salute

I want to thank Bonnie at the downtown post office for all her time and effort in what turned out to be a difficult change of address for my son.

She went way beyond what I could have expected to get the job done.

Thanks also to all the postal employees for the jobs they do, especially at this time of year when the mail is heavy and the weather is cold.

I appreciate your service.

Impeachment debacle will cost Democrats dearly

Nancy Pelosi's holding up the impeachment papers is unconscionable. Until she delivers the papers to the Senate, effectively there is no impeachment. This is according to the Democrats' own lawyer. 

The only Democratic congressperson I currently respect is Tulsi Gabbard. She has it right. Donald Trump could have been censored, not impeached. The Republican Senate would not have been able to counterattack. Pelosi and the rest of the Democratic House have placed their party in a horrible situation.

Despite what Pelosi says, she has no leverage. She has no ability to say how the Senate conducts its hearings.

Rep. Adam Schiff set this up by ensuring the Republicans had no say in the House hearings. Why should the Republicans do anything different?

She has led the Democratic Party into a quagmire, and I see no way out. Trump is raising so much money because the Democrats have made such fools of themselves.

The money being raised by Trump will not only go to Trump but to many Republican House candidates. I expect the Republicans to sweep the presidency, the House and the Senate.

Pelosi will become the minority leader again – if she is reelected. She will be blamed for the forthcoming debacle, and the few remaining Democrats may elect someone else. In the worst case, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. She seems to own the Democrats anyway, to the detriment of the Democratic Party and the United States as a whole.

Despite many appeals, I suspect donations to the Democratic Party will dry up. Why should people throw money down a hole that is getting deeper by the minute?
