Notes from all over

by GDA



Thursday of last week was a momentous day for this republic of ours. It was a day that will go down in history.
Now, for die hard Democrat Socialists, they celebrated the day because they brought their so-called two letters of impeachment to the Senate for their action. Rep. Nancy Pelosi was the clown of the outfit. She handed out a couple of hundred pens used to sign it. Then the whole group of sheep followed her to the Senate to hand the papers over to Senate Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell. This event took longer than many felt it should, but Pelosi didn't seem to know what to do with it. She obviously didn't want to give control of this witch hunt circus to the Republicans, but McConnell forced her to when he said the Senate would just go ahead without her bogus letters.
Some people called in to a talk radio station and said that McConnell should have left a note on his office that he was gone, sorry to have missed them, but he would be back in 10 minutes. That would have made the whole clown group look even worse. Their whole ridiculous band of airheads would have had to stand around wondering what to do next.
Well, one of the letters should be shot down by the courts in a month or so since the president had the right to make directives like all presidents. As for the other ridiculous letter, if the Republican controlled Senate does their job and calls the people involved, including Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, the so-called whistle-blower, Adam Schiff, Nadler, Hillary, Pelosi, etc., this whole farce could be the end of the Democratic Party as it is under Pelosi and Schumer. For instance, Schiff is on record lying to his constituents and would have to commit perjury.
There have been two other impeachments in our history. Andrew Johnson who took over when Lincoln was assassinated was one. He was saved from removal from office because one senator didn't make it to the vote in time. Then we have Bill Clinton and every American saw or heard him lie, commit perjury on TV, but he escaped. This impeachment is nothing but partisan politics, something our forefathers hoped would never happen.
In the meantime, what was our president doing on this historic day? Well, he was enjoying having his Mexico/Canada Trade Bill, a truly historic document which will be a huge plus for this country, get approved by something like an 89 to 10 margin. Wow! Oh yeah, this came after the Phase One of his trade bill with China was approved. That bill will bring several hundred billion in new trade to our country and stop China from stealing our technology, hopefully. This came after our armed forces killed the Iranian so-called general who was in charge of their terrorist operations that have killed thousands. Nearly everyone on this planet applauded that killing except for Pelosi, Schumer, Schiff and their gang of playground brats.
Well, at least one person was doing their job in D.C.
Now the fireworks will happen.
The strike by plow drivers, etc. of St. Louis County began last Wednesday. We have a lot of snow still to come and a lot of roads to plow. County employees not on strike who have a commercial driver's license and can handle a plow will try to keep the main roads clear, but it will be tough. Hopefully the two sides will meet on this and come to an agreement that doesn't raise our taxes too much.
We still have other issues up here. The PolyMet Mining Project has been hit with another holdup by one of the courts. The one thing about this project is it has kept a lot of judges and attorneys busy. In the meantime, the people up here, who have been looking for this project to become a reality with new jobs, are still waiting and waiting and waiting. They are still waiting for any of their senators, representatives or even Gov. Walz to come out for this project. Those elected people who are afraid to speak out don't need to worry, the voters will still vote for them. Voters sometimes don't ever learn.
The temperatures are freezing, snow is on the way, but we don't have to deal with volcanoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunamis, alligators, poisonous snakes, etc. Look on the good side and have a good week.

Meth bust in Hibbing
On Jan. 8, members of the Lake Superior Drug and Violent Crimes Task Force executed a search warrant at the Oliver Apartments in Hibbing and seized a large quantity of methamphetamine and cash. Three individuals were arrested during the incident and charged with methamphetamine related crimes in St Louis County Court, Hibbing. The three, all of Hibbing, are William Foster, 61; Robert Goble, 57; and Kenneth Pogorelc, 33.

I love the Cook paper!! Last year you wrote an editorial about "You Could Have Heard A Pin Drop." It was wonderful. I carry it in my purse and many people in Indiana have read it!!
Thank you.

About six weeks from now, Minnesotans will have the opportunity to participate in Precinct Caucuses. On Tuesday, Feb. 25, Republicans from around the 8th Congressional District will take part in the unofficial kickoff to the 2020 campaign season. I'll soon be posting additional information on my website highlighting Republican precinct caucus locations as well as BPOU convention dates and venues.

Orchids: To those beginning the process of getting the Twin Metals project approved. If the Minneapolis RedStar and it's ideological subsidiary, the Timberjay, plus the modern day DFL Party oppose and editorialize against the project, then it must be a very good project for the people of the Iron Range.
