It was early in the United States History that human beings were placed into office in order to “form a more perfect Union”.  We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity”, voted for people to represent us in Congress and it didn’t take long for rascals and rapscallions to make themselves known.  Down through the decades it seemed that Congress had no intention to insure domestic tranquility but to cause unrest and division.  Almost every President at some point found himself thwarted  over policies that the entire Nation had voted to have implemented and almost all had a pet name for the Congress like “snake pit”,   After the last few weeks it is truly too bad that a great title for a book entitled “Confederacy of Dunces” is already taken.

After the last weeks of watching what was once called the greatest deliberative body in the world “deliberate”, I recalled some of the words by Henry Adams.  Adams was descended from two US Presidents and had been Lincoln’s Ambassador to England and was a historian of some weight.  He wrote a book called, “The Education of Henry Adams”,  “The Senate, he wrote “took the place of Shakespeare, and offered real Brutuses and Bolingbrokes, Jack Cades, Falstaffs and Malvolios,—endless varieties of human nature nowhere else to be studied, and none the less amusing because they killed.”

It is an interesting statement that.  They kill!   One of the many minions of one party in another hysterical screed called the Republican party a “cult of death” and the white men on the Senate committee should die slow deaths and then have their corpses mutilated.  The women in the Senate used to be called Gentlewomen.  Up here in the North Country there are three women representing all of us and I wonder where two of these gentlewomen stand.  One of them we have knowledge of – she thinks it is perfectly fine to destroy the lives of men by innuendo and flat out lies and I would guess she believes that Republican men are a part of the “death cult”.  She is on the so called “judiciary” committee and believe it or not she is considered a “moderate”.  I have not heard a word from her concerning Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison and the charges against him by a women, which immediately is supposed to make him guilty.  Of course he is a Democrat so it doesn’t count.  I wonder what the gentlewomen from Minnesota says to the citizens of her state that supposedly are a part of a death cult.  I wonder what the Senator from North Dakota thinks about the men she represents.  Her adds show a lot of grumpy old white farmer men.  At some point I wonder if these gentlewomen blush to be a part of a party at includes the likes of the men that we saw on one side at the Kavanagh hearings.  I doubt it very much.  They are a vibrant part of a party that exists in the mode of Saul Alinsky.  One must remember that Karl Marx said to “accuse your enemies of that which you yourself are doing and so create confusion”.  So if a certain party accuses the Republicans of being a death cult ……………..?

There is a reason that the Bible demanded that issues be determined by two of three witnesses.  From the Bible’s  lead Common Law and most Law has been predicated on everything being verified by two or three witness.  Jesus Himself had to be verified by two or three witnesses.  An example is His baptism.  He is witnessed to by the Father and the Spirit and by John the Baptist.  1 John 5:6-9 talks about “three witnesses” to Christ: “This is he who came by water and blood, Jesus Christ, not with the water only but with the water and the blood. And the Spirit is the witness, because the Spirit is the truth. There are three witnesses, the Spirit, the water, and the blood; and these three agree.”  One of the greatest scenes of pathos in human history is that none of Jesus accusers could agree on what He had done wrong but he was executed anyway.

So witnesses are important and that is why the left have reversed the old adage that “the magnitude of the charges are not important; the weight of the evidence is”.  Like everything else the left touches this obvious and salutary concept is turned up side down.
And whatever became of “assuring the domestic tranquility”?
