An Inconvenient Truth – Rick Santorum Says Truth Is Irrelevant

First, Republicans told us that, “Truth isn’t truth.” Then, the most remorseless liar that I’ve ever seen informed us further that, “There’s no such thing as truth.” Now, Mr. Santorum would have us believe that, “Truth is irrelevant.”

Mr. Santorum is like all politicians – he is what all Republican politicians are supposed to be – about a hundred years behind everyone else. Everyone else, even the Base, believes more firmly than ever that truth exists, that the truth is that Mr. Santorum’s boss is a criminal and that Mr. Santorum is either in denial, or a liar. The truth is simple:

The purpose of a trial is to find the truth, impartially; and to fix punishment. The law punishes.

From the very first day that Trump entered politics, he has attacked the Judiciary and the rule of law. He began by attacking a federal judge with demeaning language, racism, and veiled threats. He is attacking the law now on all fronts: using executive orders, commutations, and pardons, leaving vacancies in important courts, and filling seats with incompetents and the unqualified; and failing to support legislation to lighten judicial workloads, to mention just a few.

Trump has sunk so low that he now insults, mocks and threatens; and impugns the honor of senators and congressmen, of Supreme Court justices. Of anyone and anything, even the Constitution. And he actually believes that he is better than everyone. But he is blind to his own faults. We see a vulgar, swearing, lying, threatening, backstabbing, mumbling, half-drunk or high on something, simple-minded, greedy thug. With an IQ of about 100. He sees perfection. His golf handicap is the only thing about him that isn’t sub-par. But, Republicans protect him as though their lives depended on it, or their liberty. They feed his obsessions and stoke his toxic narcissism. They play with our lives as though we were just so many little toys.

Truth? The truth is that the Republican Party is disintegrating. It is washed-up, derelict, and a hazard to navigation. Every move that the Senate makes only hastens their destruction and makes it more severe. They’ve already dug a hole too deep to ever climb out of.

I started out, nearly a year ago, by using the analogy of the “Bamboo Lounge,” from the movie, “Goodfellas.” Tha gangsters burn the club to the ground in the end, when they have raped it, robbed it, and ruined its reputation. When they have everything that they want from her. That’s what people like Santorum and President Trump have done: They have raped and abused the Republican Party. Now that they have had their way, and they will cast her aside.

Santorum sacrificed the Republican Party on the altar of Trump. Politicians sell us into slavery to the Mafia and betray their country. Trump drools venom through Twitter. And there are more murders every day.

It’s ridiculous to assume that anyone can render fair and impartial justice unless they have all the evidence and testimony. If any Senator votes without considering all the evidence, then he or she is in violation of oath. Any Senator, with that awesome power and autonomy each has, should be able to demand that all the facts be considered. That’s right: even one single senator should be able to demand all the evidence and testimony.

Santorum was right about one thing: the damage to the Senate is incalculable, and if there is not a fair trial, with evidence and testimony for the people to consider next November, then there will be a price to pay. Or hell to pay.

Air Force brat. My dad was shepherd to a bunch of B-52's; the GI's called that place "20 Minutes From Armageddon;" because a missile launched in East Germany would pop over our heads twenty minutes later. That put me in some of the best schools anywhere. I wrote in the Press Office of a powerful, charismatic Midwestern Governor. I dabble in graphic arts. My 50+ entertainment sites get a few million visits, and I have stopped counting the fans, likes, and shares, per year. I've rambled the world, hitched around the continent (counter-clockwise). Climbed a couple of teeners, been to a couple of thousand rock, blues, and jazz concerts. I was at a free concert on Telegraph Avenue, Berkeley, CA with about 350,000 freaks and hippies; and other festivals. I won a writing contest when I was six. It was a Poe-like horror story taken from an account of a mining disaster. I had already been reading Edgar Allan Poe (which may explain a lot). I could read before I could talk. I implemented some of the first client/server, TCP-IP networks (the Internet) at many of the world's largest corporations. I know a half-dozen programming languages, and have implemented and administered many network operating systems. Right now I build ebikes, and lithium batteries from scratch. I was taught that race and ethnicity don't set us apart. I think that the best thing that could happen in this country would be if a woman were to be elected President of the United States. I admire President Obama more than any man in history, save one.
