The American Public Is Losing In the Impeachment Battle [Opinion]

A brilliant opinion piece from Dr. Bruce L. Hartman…

Published

What’s going in Washington is horrifying to watch. It is like watching children on the playground yell at each other about who did what first. A game of one-upmanship where the truth gets buried. A game that the media accentuates to gain ratings and advertisers. Meanwhile, the American people sit horrified, akin to how the children of screaming parents feel.

Nancy Pelosi declares that she is starting an impeachment hearing to honor the founding fathers of our country. It is a move not prompted by the facts, but she could no longer control the unruly gangs that make up the Democratic coalition in the House of Representatives. Knowing full well that the two-year investigation by Mueller failed, here was another chance to try something new.

The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee intentionally states words that the president did not say. When challenged, he declared it was only a parody. In the pursuit of gaining fame, he aggressively seeks out cameras to wax on about what a great person he is and how he is working for the good of America.

The national media, seeing an opportunity to gain more revenue, prints headlines that are downright wrong. Creating headlines that the president is coming unglued. Perpetuating a sense that our president is out of control.

Hidden in this story of impeachment are the real facts. Sure, the president asked a foreign leader to investigate Hunter Biden’s role in the Ukraine. Frankly, I would have done the same thing. They claimed he pressured the Ukrainian President when, in fact, the Ukrainian president acknowledged he didn’t feel pressured.

Why wouldn’t the president ask this question, once you know the facts. Hunter Biden was paid over one hundred thousand dollars a month to sit on a board of a Ukrainian company that had a bad reputation. Nowhere in his resume did it show he had any ability to help guide this company. His father, Joe Biden pressured the powers in the Ukraine to stop an investigation into the company or he would withhold one billion dollars in funding.

Hunter Biden, throughout his life, had received the benefit and privilege of having a powerful father. When he was in the armed service, he was caught using cocaine. Instead of being dishonorably discharged, he received a waiver of release. He went to some of America’s best college, but never achieved the success of his compatriots. When you look at his resume, he was able to gain contacts—not through his abilities—but through his dad’s influence. Influence that is not available for the young person struggling to make a life who goes to college and amasses a large amount of debt.

You bet I would have asked the same question the president did. In the national media television coverage last week, the president received over four hundred and twenty minutes of negative press. While only forty-two minutes were spent on the Hunter Biden issue.

The president himself is acting like a petulant child and needs to back off. Sure, he feels wronged, but he is the president and needs to hold himself to a higher standard. I wish I or anyone had the power to control his twitter outbursts. I would make him write on the chalkboard ten thousand times the famous Teddy Roosevelt quote, “Speak softly and carry a big stick.” Heck, if it was humanly possible, one million times!
The president is his own worst enemy and has not learned that his opponents know how to attack him. They know how to rile him up. Sure, the media is mostly against him. Sure, the Democrats will do anything to slow him down. But you don’t fight back with words. You fight back by doing the best job you can.
So here we sit, watching two out-of-control factions publicly embarrass us on an international stage.

We are the ones who elected them. We are the ones who pay unusually high taxes to support them. We are the ones who must comply with disinterested government workers inane rules.

We are the ones whose trust level of our leaders has sunk to 17 percent—a remarkable low when only a few decades ago it ran well into the 70 percent range. We no longer look up to our leaders but instead are ashamed.

The American people know the answer to this problem. The answer is for our politicians to develop hearts that forgive first and judge last. We know the answer is tolerance and not intolerance. We know more is accomplished through love than anger.

We know that our pursuits shouldn’t be to gain fame but to serve. We know that through vengeance there are no winners. We know that listening is far better than talking.

I know it has been declared by the “politically correct police” to not mention Jesus. But the American people do know that following, Christian values will end the acrimony.

In times of identity politics, there is no bigger group than the neglected Christian voice. Maybe today our pastors will speak up. Maybe today people of faith will get a chance to voice their beliefs.

Why not try to love our neighbors? Why not try to turn the other cheek? We, the American public, are exhausted from the squabbling and want our politicians to become as great as the everyday American.

According to the most recent numbers, more Americans have died from the coronavirus than died in most of our recent wars combined.

Published

According to the most recent numbers, more Americans have died from the coronavirus than died in combat during WWI, WWII, the Korean, and Vietnam wars combined.

China should be thrilled. They’ve killed more Americans than all our modern wars combined.

Per Breitbart News:

There have been 673,472 deaths in the United States due to the Chinese coronavirus, more than the combined numbers of American military lives lost during battle in World War I, World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War.

As of Sunday afternoon, Johns Hopkins University & Medicine reported 42,050,638 confirmed cases of the coronavirus and 673,472 deaths.

In November 2020, the Department of Veterans Affairs recorded 53,402 battle deaths in World War I, 291,557 battle deaths in World War II, 33,739 battles deaths in the Korean War, and 47,434 battle deaths during the Vietnam War.

The combined number of battle deaths in the four wars totaled 426,132.

Recently an artist created a performance piece featuring small white flags to help visualize the death toll.

“This week, over 660,000 white flags were put on display in a tribute at the National Mall in Washington, DC, to represent the lives lost during the pandemic for an exhibit titled, In America: Remember, the New York Post reported Friday,” Breitbart added.

“The 20-acre installation — which was unveiled Friday near the Washington Monument — is the second chilling exhibit that artist Suzanne Brennan Firstenberg said is based on a project trying to capture the ‘human dignity’ behind the staggering death toll,” the Post wrote.

IF China is not the world’s most dangerous enemy, who is?

Major Disparity Discovered Between Moderna and Pfizer Vaccines

This could make an enormous difference when it comes to the subject of COVID boosters.

Published

These days, when you get your polio or tetanus vaccines, you don’t really go shopping around, right?  These two inoculations have been perfected to death, over decades and decades, and really just come with one choice:  Be vaccinated or don’t.

But, in the case of COVID-19 and the swiftly-developed vaccines against it, there are several competing options to choose from, which has created and fomented a hotly-debated choice for many Americans.

Now, new evidence seems to suggest that there is truly a difference in efficacy between the two most popular jabs.

Data collected from 18 states between March and August suggest the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine reduces the risk of being hospitalized with COVID-19 by 91% in the first four months after receiving the second dose. Beyond 120 days, however, that vaccine efficacy drops to 77%.

Meanwhile, Moderna’s vaccine was 93% effective at reducing the short-term risk of COVID-19 hospitalization and remained 92% effective after 120 days.

Overall, 54% of fully vaccinated Americans have been immunized with the Pfizer shot.

The news could create a major shift in the way country considers the possibly of vaccine booster shots, which has been a confusing and fraught subject over the course of the last several weeks.

One clinical study suggested that the Pfizer boosters could return the efficacy to the 95% range, but the addition of another shot is likely to move the needle on vaccine hesitancy as well, which is a balance that health experts are wary of teetering.
