As I See It

July 4th – 244 years! Now and Forever!

“Questions Not Asked & Questions Not Answered”.

Readers ask a lot of questions, but, often, I don’t have (informed) answers!

Q-Was the ‘Declaration of Independence’ signed by citizens of the United States of America?

AISI-The eight ‘signers’ were all Englishmen who were born in the ‘colonies’?

Q Who wrote the Declaration of Independence?

AISI-Apparently many of the most meaningful lines in the Declaration of Independence were written by George Mason from Virginia. One example is “all men are born equally free and independent.” Continue reading

Math is not my thing!

It’s interesting/unfortunate to see how ‘selective’ we are when watching/reading the ‘news’!

Our newspapers, television channels, magazines, radio stations are slanted towards the right or the left- Republican or Democrat.

At the same time, we, their reader/viewers, choose to get our news from a medium which agrees with our own biased Point-Of-View. So ‘facts’ are difficult to find.

COVID 19- Where are we now? Where are we going?

Some sources report about 1.5 million infections in the United States alone since January of this year. But, of course we need to know “Is that the whole truth?”

Don’t we need to know “How many people have been tested?” Continue reading

On ‘Covid19’ – These (below) are “Quotes” from the press: Readers questions not answered!
Q-“Masks in a medical setting stop the wearer’s fluids from contaminating other patients”.

AISI-Why then should we not all wear a mask to protect those around us?

AISI-For the same reason, ask that people around us do the same?

Q-“Mask N95 was, at some point determined to be a safe for medical usage”.

AISI-N95, means only 95% protection. How many ‘Medic’ infections would have been avoided if N100 masks were used exclusively”.

Q-“Cost efficiency would also figure in as to why one was chosen over the other”. Continue reading

As I See It, anyone who doesn’t think that America, was, is and always will be ‘great’ qualifies for a one-way ticket to Havana, Beijing or Moscow, UNLESS they fear that the country is going broke!

Back in 1835, for the first and only time in history, President Andrew Jackson paid off the United States National Debt.

Where are we now?

Public debt now adds up to more than $22 trillion — the highest it has ever been.

This, despite the fact that we are in the largest economic expansion since World War II.

The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) anticipates that the U.S. will continue to rack up more debt faster than ever before.

Over the next 10 years, Congress will have to borrow another $1.2 trillion which is far higher than any time in the past 50 years.

The CBO said. “Other than immediately after World War II, the average deficit has never been so large over so many years,” Continue reading

Will Nancy Pelosi soon be the President of the United States of America ?

Will Mike Pence have to decline the Presidency?

Will President Trump “take the fifth?”

The Democrats are accusing Trump of obstructing Congress because he has refused to let his staff testify.

But the 5th Amendment to the Constitution of United States of America says, in part:- “No person shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself.”

Is it reasonable that President Trump has made that choice? Or, another way of asking is “Why would Trump ‘witness against himself’ whether it is him or someone speaking for him? Continue reading

One of our readers says that the word ‘trump’ means “exceed, out-flank, out-match, scoop, surmount, out-perform, out-strip, scoop, best, out-do and surpass“.

As I See It, if the Democrats multi-million dollar effort to depose the President of the United States fails, then ‘The Donald’ will have achieved most, if not all, of the above.

Another reader asked, “Why has there been no discussion in the mainstream media about ‘succession’?
Apparently, if Vice President Mike Pence declined, then, Believe-It-Or-Not, the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi (D) would be President without a vote from anyone.

The US Constitution says that a President can be removed for “treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors”. My understanding is that it started with President Donald Trumps phone call to Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky. Continue reading

Did you know that the Constitution of the United States of America limits impeachment to “Treason, Bribery, or other High Crimes and Misdemeanors”.

Unfortunately the exact meaning of the phrase “High Crimes and Misdemeanors” is not defined.

The Democrats in Washington DC are determined to “IMPEACH THE PRESIDENT!”

My understanding is that President Donald Trump is alleged to have asked the President of The Ukraine to investigate allegations of bribery and corruption in their country. Continue reading

Columns of ‘numbers’, like this one, are hard to write and boring read. But, sometimes it’s worth the effort.

Since ‘Day-One’, President Trump has tried to cut foreign aid.

He told the UN General Assembly, “Moving forward, we are only going to give foreign aid to those who respect us and, frankly, are our friends.”

Unfortunately Congress (Democrats), who control federal funding, refuse stop the export of American Tax-Payers money to all kinds of foreign countries – Friend & Foe alike.

Did you know that, Congress gives away over $50 BILLION of Tax-Payers money by way of so-called ‘Foreign Aid’?

A concerned citizen might ask “Why?” Continue reading

Apparently, a Washington intelligence officer reported that President Trump talked to the leader of Ukraine about the business dealings of Former Democrat Vice President, Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden.

Because of its conflicts with Russia, the Ukraine receives millions of American Tax-Dollars in aid.

Its interesting that VP Joe Biden is rumored to have stopped a corruption prosecution against a company that hired his son Hunter Biden.

By his own admission, VP Joe Biden made at least a dozen visits to Kyiv, Ukraine when he was in the White House.

Questions are being asked about his role in the dismissal of the country’s prosecutor general, Viktor Shokin back in 2016. Continue reading
