February 2020 Commentaries

By Gary F. Zeolla

These commentaries are continued from April 2019 Commentaries.

 


This page contains short comments I’ve posted about news articles on Trib Live. This is the website for three Pittsburgh area newspapers, including my hometown newspaper. I read their website every day. Trib Live is left leaning in its perspective across all three of its newspapers and on its website. The comments at the end of articles are also mostly left leaning, being posted mostly by people from the very blue city of Pittsburgh. As such, my voice is rather unique. That is why I decided to start posting comments, to counter the liberal perspective. There is a 750-character limit to comments, so I need to be concise in my comments, which is not always easy for me to do. The title links open in a new window.  The comments are posted in reverse chronological order. Newest on top, oldest at the bottom.


Pennsylvania primary ballot finalized for presidential races, Congress, state legislature

    “The three big issues are his [Biden's] character and integrity… his experience… and, three, his ideas, which aren’t getting as much attention and I hope they do.' You mean his enriching of his son Hunter, his two brothers, his daughter, and her husband, none of whom were qualified for the positions they were given and only got thanks to Biden’s corrupt activities.

Pa. mail carrier sues U.S. Postal Service over Sunday work shifts

    He will probably win this case based on First Amendment protection of religious freedom. If he does not, then it will be appealed up the chain. With Trump’s 190+ new conservative federal judges and two Supreme Court Justices, he will eventually win the case, and a new precedent will be set. Christians will be able to request Sundays off, Jews, Saturdays, and Muslims, Fridays. In fact, I wonder if there have been orthodox Jews or Muslims who would like to work for the Postal Service but have not applied because they would have to work on their holy days. The correct ruling here would open the door for them to do so.

 Letter to the editor: Founders warned us about Donald Trump

    No, the Founders we concerned about partisan impeachments, that would turn the US into a parliamentary system where the President serves at the pleasure of Congress, as articulated by Professor Jonathan Turley during the legal experts hearing.

    Moreover, plans were already in the works to release the military aid at the end of August, two weeks before the WB complaint, as demonstrated by a letter by Senator Johnson. He had called the President out of concern about the aid. Trump told him, it was under review, “But you will like what we will decide” indicating the aid was to be soon released. It was, on September 11, two weeks before the fiscal year deadline of September 30.

Report: Intel officials say Russia boosting Trump candidacy

 

    “The disclosure, in a closed-door briefing last week” “The two officials who were familiar with the briefing asked for anonymity to discuss sensitive intelligence.”  

For those who wondered why Trump did not inform Congress about strikes against Al-Baghdadi and Soleimani, here’s why. This info was not supposed to be released to the public, but here we are talking about it, because some Dem lawmaker ran to their liberal friends WaPo and the NYT and leaked this information.

Census Bureau finds Pa. divorce rates declined over the last decade

    This is good news. Would be even more so if it were nationwide.

North Carolina police charge mother in 1999 slaying of baby

    A truly sad story. But she should have just gone to a Planned Parenthood two days earlier. Then it would have been a perfectly legal abortion, and all of this fuse could have been avoided. Just shows how insane our society is when it comes to when life begins. One day, it just a mass of tissue that can be thrown away. Two days later, it is murder if you do the same.

Former Ukraine diplomat Marie Yovanovitch has book deal

“investigate baseless corruption allegations against Democrat Joe Biden and his son Hunter” No matter how often Dems and the MSM repeat this line, they were never investigated, so there is no way of knowing if they were “baseless” or not. As for Marie, she has learned the scheme of how to get rich: be part of the Trump administration, then write a book criticizing him. Meanwhile, her testimony was a complete waste of time. All it was designed to do was to show Trump is a big, bad meanee. Even if you believe that, it is not an impeachable offense.
