I think those on the right who are celebrating the fall of the House of Cuomo both in NY & at CNN as a victory for us. I disagree, it’s not so much a victory as it is the embodiment of a basic truth of the left which is this: If you have power to aid and abet their cause of the left you will be protected by them & their media, academic and entertainment allies, but once you no longer have that power your usefulness is at an end and said protection is gone.

Cuomo’s fall, while satisfying simply means that they are no longer useful to the cause and thus are no longer guaranteed the protection or deference that the left’s institutions once provided. In fact the only protection they have is whatever knowledge they have of others on the left who have done as bad as them or worse.


Last month I was at lunch with my brothers who are both much more conservative than me (I’m practically the liberal of the group) and the subject of both Fauci & Pelosi came up.

While they despise them both with a passion they also noted that they were both very smart in the sense that while their actions have been detrimental to the nation they successfully used said actions to gain personal power, wealth and security.

These actions might be unethical, dishonest and dishonorable even to the point of being evil but given the end result for themselves were certainly not stupid, except of course in a theological sense.


Speaking of falls Charlie Baker AND Karen Politio have decided to call it quits not seeking a 3rd term as governor and Lt. Gov of Massachusetts.

There have been ups and downs. On the down side the pair are horrible on social issues, particularly abortion and their opposition to President Trump is why the left likes him as much as they do in the state. On the plus side Baker is an able and competent administrator and I suspect with some cause the reason while Massachusetts in general and Fitchburg in particular did not go the way of Kenosha or Minneapolis when BLM came calling was due to his quiet actions.

A lot of conservatives will not be sorry their gone, at least not until a completely woke Democrat gets the job and does their best to turn the state into California.


There is word that the Democrats will go all in on abortion for the midterms as the potential for SCOTUS reversing Roe seems good after oral arguments.

While I think it’s not wise to 2nd guess the court, particularly any court run by old yellowstain Justice Roberts it’s a most logical move on their part.

Of course all of this was inevitable because the future belong to those who show up and spending generation killing off your potential voters is not a long term plan for success.


Finally for the past month there has been a lot of speculation on dumping Kamala Harris.

I’m not buying any of it. Harris is in an elected not an appointed position and unless you have actual impeachable offenses and the willingness of the house and senate to remove her she’s not going anywhere. All this talk is just talk.

And seriously why would she resign? What is the actual gain for her? It’s not like everyone doesn’t already know how she got to where she is and frankly I don’t that there is anything hidden in her past that is more corrupt than what the Biden’s are openly doing.

Rep Seth Moulton (D-MA) and Rep Peter Meijer (R-MI) took a secret trip to Afghanistan to see for themselves the situation on the ground. This has gotten the Army, the Administration and the State Department’s knickers in an uproar. I can see why. Given the degree of the failure of the Biden Administration the last thing they want is for congress to have a clear idea of what is going out unfiltered by the administration.


There is a lot of talk about the clash between “moderates’ and “progressives” in the House over the hold up on the infrastructure and budget bills that the Biden Administration has been desperate to get passed.

The clash is not so much between “moderates” and progressives as it is between Democrats who don’t have to worry about being re-elected and Democrats who do and with the Biden Administration debacle in Afghanistan it’s going to be a lot harder to press those Democrats who aren’t anxious to be identified with the administration.


Charlie Baker through his education commissioner has reinstated a Mask mandate for schools at least until October. Charlie has made a few wrong turns on this but has generally been sane, but with an election coming up next year in a state that’s as blue as it comes I guess he’s not willing to make any fights that he doesn’t have to.

It was be nice if we had a Redder and more Trump like governor, but until we focus on educating the public in this state Mr. Baker is likely the best we can do.


The Supreme Court rejected the Biden Administration attempt to block a lower court can not block a lower court ruling re-instating the Trump “Return to Mexico” policy.

This is ironically the same method that was used to force the DACA policy on the Trump administration.

I think that the former ruling was a bad precedent as it makes laws without lawmaking however that’s not going to change until the left starts getting burned by it.


Finally Kamala Harris in Vietnam on the anniversary of John McCain’s death put down a wreath at a war memorial celebrating the shooting down of his airplane.

Reportedly she was warned that this was not a Memorial TO McCain but celebrating him being shot down but she reportedly overruled her advisers who warned her thus. Apparently she wanted to photo op.

I’d object but as she’s owned by people who are America’s enemies and is in fact on their side I’d just as soon she not pretend otherwise.

A quick commentary on the difference between having a good administrator and not

Just before Memorial Day Governor Charlie Baker finally lifted the majority of restrictions he single-handedly placed on all of the inhabitants of Massachusetts way back last March.  Gone are the capacity limits placed on restaurants and retail establishments, which were set at only25 percent. 

Bars are finally allowed to open, those that were not forced to close permanently for financial reasons after having their doors shuttered for fifteen months.  Finally I can go to bars and enjoy craft beers and listen to live music !!! That is a past time I greatly enjoy and have not been able to do for more than a year. 

I can go to restaurants without covering my face with a face diaper.  For a lengthy time we were required to wear masks at all times inside restaurants except when actually taking a bite. That was such a ridiculously bothersome rule that I stopped going to restaurants when that rule was imposed.   I am so enjoying eating out again. Unfortunately so many restaurants in Massachusetts closed because of Governor Bakers restrictions.  They could not remain open operating at only 25 percent capacity, imagine that.

Mask mandates were lifted and replaced with a mask advisory for those not vaccinated.  It is so wonderful to breath freely outdoors and indoors   I would have ignored mask mandates for just unvaccinated individuals.  That would have been unenforceable without vaccine passports, which are unconstitutional;  I am quite pleasantly astounded that Emperor Baker did not impose vaccine passports.   That is just the kind of big government fascism that our faux Republican governor has been saddling us with since the beginning of this pandemic.

School kids are still forced to wears masks, even during recess.  For the past several days it’s been in the 90s with high humidity.  Governor Baker is putting school children through hell and that is child abuse on a grand scale.

I am worried that in the fall there will be a slight spike in Coronavirus cases and Governor Baker will impose the same liberty and economy destroying restrictions again.  I am worried that some other crisis will come along, even an imaginary one such as climate change, and locked down we will be again.  Governor Baker is a firm believer in man made global warming.  He singed Massachusetts up for an interstate compact to fight climate change which saddled us with a hefty new gas tax.  

We the people must demand that the state legislature reign in the Governor’s emergency declarations powers so that this nightmare never happens again.  I am not confident at all that that would happen. The people of this state have proved to be for the most part compliant sheeple.  Not that I expected anything different.  This is the Peoples Republic of Massachusetts after all.
