The Beltway Bidens: Creepy, crooked, and NOT just like us

The Beltway Bidens: Creepy, crooked, and NOT just like us
by Michelle Malkin

Copyright 2019

Now that Creepy Joe Biden thinks he has put to rest all the cringy questions about his grabby hands, he has reverted to one of his old-time shticks: middle-class Joe. Champion of the masses. Hero of the hoi polloi. A six-term U.S. senator and two-term vice president, which equates to 44 back-slapping, log-rolling, favor-trading years in Washington, this decrepit Beltway swamp-dweller wants flyover Americans to believe that he’s really just like you and me.

To which I can only reply with one hearty syllable: HA!

Reality-based reporting and informed commentary since the rollout of Biden 2020 has rightly focused on the Biden family’s ideological and interest-conflicted dalliances with Ukraine and China. But let’s first start with a reminder about elite Biden privilege closer to home.

Robert Hunter Biden, youngest son of the veep creep, secured a prestigious direct commission to the U.S. Naval Reserves in 2012 as a public affairs officer. The program recruits civilians without prior military service who have “special skills that are critical to sustaining military operations.” Biden the younger’s primary qualification for the cushy part-time job was his last name. The power of nepotism came in handy when Bidenspawn was forced to seek not one, but two waivers, to nail down the gig.

Ordinary applicants have to meet age restrictions (under 40 at the time he sought the position, now 42). He was 43. Then hapless Hunter needed a second waiver to get a pass for prior cocaine use. Granted! Only six public affairs officers received such direct appointments from the Navy Reserves that year. Amazing, isn’t it, that there wasn’t a single other applicant in America (population: 327 million) with a clean drug history and proper age eligibility to take the slot.

But for all that string-pulling effort, Hunter Biden barely served a year. After testing positive for — wait for it — cocaine during a random drug test, he was discharged quietly in February 2014. The hush-hush deal, undisclosed until a whistleblower told The Wall Street Journal eight months later, was yet another perk of Biden patronage. So was his immunity from any investigation or review of his law license by the Connecticut bar. And so, too, was his quick career bounce back.

A month after his humiliating discharge from our military, Biden’s coke-abusing party boy was appointed to the board of director of Ukraine’s largest private gas producer, Burisma Holdings, owned by a powerful Russian government sympathizer, who had fled to Russia that year. It’s also the same company a top Ukranian prosecutor was investigating for corruption before he was fired — at the behest of Papa Biden, according to Joe himself, who bragged about threatening to withhold $1 billion in loan guarantees to Ukraine during a Council of Foreign Relations speech in 2018.

After reporting earlier this month that Ukrainian officials are still probing the shady company and its dealings with Baby Biden, The Hill’s John Solomon proposed pointed questions for the Democratic presidential front-runner: “Was it appropriate for your son and his firm to cash in on Ukraine while you served as point man for Ukraine policy? What work was performed for the money Hunter Biden’s firm received? Did you know about the Burisma probe… (and) should you have recused yourself?”

Similar queries apply to Hunter Biden’s other position at investment firm Rosemont Seneca, which snagged a $1 billion deal in 2013 with the Commie-run Bank of China, first reported by investigative author Peter Schweizer, just days after Daddy B had met with China’s president Xi Jinping.

As I catalogued in “Culture of Corruption” more than a decade ago, name-trading and favor-extracting are the story of Hunter the Privileged and Joe the Enabler’s lives:

–Hunter’s first job, acquired after Joe Biden won his 1996 Senate reelection bid in Delaware, was with MBNA, the credit card conglomerate and top campaign finance donor to then Sen. Biden. The elder Biden secured his custom-built, multimillion-dollar house in Delaware’s ritziest Chateau Country with the help of a leading MBNA corporate executive. Biden went on to carry legislative water for MBNA in the Senate for years.

–Hunter became a “founding partner” in the lobbying firm of Oldaker, Biden and Belair in 2002. William Oldaker was Papa Biden’s former fundraiser, campaign treasurer and general counsel. Under Oldaker’s tutelage, Hunter lobbied for drug companies, universities and other deep-pocketed clients to the tune of nearly $4 million billed to the company by 2007.

–Hunter held a top position at Paradigm Global Advisors, a hedge fund holding company founded with the veep’s brother, James, and marketed by convicted finance fraudster Allen Stanford. Hunter oversaw half a billion dollars of client money invested in hedge funds while remaining a D.C. lobbyist. The ill-fated venture went bust amid nasty fraud lawsuits.

–Hunter also served on the board of directors of taxpayer-subsidized Amtrak, for which his father secured a $53 billion high-speed train initiative.

I challenge middle-class Joe and his moocher son to find a rank-and-file union member’s child who has enjoyed such spectacular career success and largesse.

The Beltway Bidens: Not just creepy but also crooked. And most definitely still not like us.

Beware Soros-Funded Hijacking of US Census

Beware Soros-Funded Hijacking of US Census

“Are you a U.S. citizen?”

Only in self-defeating, sovereignty-eroding America is the idea of asking whether people living in America are American citizens for the American census a matter of controversy.

On Tuesday, the U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments on whether the Trump administration can include a citizenship question on the high-stakes 2020 Census questionnaire. Thank goodness, the conservative majority indicated support for allowing it. There’s already such a question on the annual American Community Survey administered by the Census Bureau. It was asked in long-form questionnaires sent to a sample of households in 2000. And it was regularly asked in historical census forms from 1820-1950.

But we live in a Trump-deranged age, so now it’s tantamount to an international human rights crime to ask anyone about citizenship status at any time for any reason. Heaven forbid we inconvenience or discomfit legal noncitizens or illegal immigrants with a question!

Open borders activists, left-wing immigration lawyers and identity politics radicals exploded on cue:

–Former Obama Attorney General Eric Holder decried the “unconstitutional and irresponsible action” to “suppress the count in minority communities.”

–The Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee fumed about the “political stunt that unfairly targets immigrant communities throughout our country in an attempt to SILENCE immigrants and benefit Republicans.”

–Histrionic social justice actress Alyssa Milano called it an “attack on immigrant communities and our democracy itself.”

–Jorge Luis Vasquez Jr. of LatinoJustice, funded by George Soros’ Open Society Foundations, vented that a citizenship question would “damage all our daily lives for decades.”

–Kristen Clarke, president of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, another Soros-funded outfit, which sued over the citizenship question, blasted the “scheme to hijack the 2020 Census.”

–The Soros-funded Asian Americans Advancing Justice lobbying group condemned Trump as “racially and politically motivated.”

Let’s all practice our deep pranayama breathing and ground ourselves in reality. It’s the radical left, much of it fueled with Soros’ money, that has hijacked the U.S. Census, not President Donald Trump. “No Illegal Alien Left Behind” is crucial to their strategy. Why?

Remember: The Census is used to divvy up seats in the House as a proportion of their population based on the head count. The redistribution of power extends to presidential elections because the Electoral College is pegged to the size of congressional delegations. More people equal more seats. More illegal immigrants equal more power. Indeed, the Center for Immigration Studies determined that in the 2000 election cycle, the presence of noncitizens (illegal immigrants, temporary visitors and green card holders) caused nine seats in the House to switch hands. California added six seats it would not have had otherwise. Texas, New York and Florida each gained a seat. Indiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin each lost a seat. Montana, Kentucky and Utah each failed to secure a seat they would otherwise have gained.

Our Founding Fathers explicitly warned against the perils of foreigners manipulating representation by overwhelming the country. Immigration scholar and author Daniel Horowitz points to Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story’s prophetic admonition: “If aliens might be admitted indiscriminately to enjoy all the rights of citizens at the will of a single state, the Union might itself be endangered by an influx of foreigners, hostile to its institutions, ignorant of its powers, and incapable of a due estimate of its privileges.”

Statesman Roger Sherman similarly emphasized the need to “guard against an improper mode of naturalization” by states adopting “easier terms.”

Too late. Multiple illegal immigrant amnesties, coupled with massive legal immigration, failure to deport visa overstayers and the metastasis of sanctuary policies, have taken their toll. Moreover, our constitutionally mandated decennial count has become a full-employment program for ideologically driven liberal interest groups cashing in on the census-gathering process and reshaping the electoral landscape. During the last census under President Barack Obama, with $300 billion in federal funding at stake, social justice groups from Soros-funded ACORN to Soros-funded Voto Latino to the Soros-allied SEIU were enlisted to count heads and help noncitizens feel “safe.”

The Census boondoggle has become a tax-subsidized national future Democratic voter outreach drive. Soros’ operations, along with 77 other liberal foundations, have invested $30 million to make illegal immigrants count. The Open Society Institute’s grantees and partners on coopting the Census for Democrat gains include the Southern Coalition for Social Justice, Miami Workers Center, Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Southwest Workers Union, New York Community Trust, New York Foundation, Center for American Progress, People for the American Way and the Funders Census Initiative. A recently leaked internal board document revealed that the Soros network has coordinated efforts for the past four years to “influence appropriations for the Census Bureau” and add new racial and ethnic categories.

The Census Bureau will need 500,000 temporary workers to conduct the count in what will already be a hyperpolarized election year. However the Supreme Court rules on the citizenship question, the Trump administration must ensure that Open Borders Inc. does not co-opt the enumerator corps. As SorosWorld well understands:

Power lies not just with who is being counted, but who’s doing the counting.

False Accuser Shaun Lying King’s Record of Harm

False Accuser Shaun Lying King’s Record of Harm
by Michelle Malkin
Creators Syndicate
Copyright 2019

This week, “journalist, activist and humanitarian” Shaun King will give a keynote speech at the annual Innocence Network conference in Atlanta, Georgia. The theme of the event, whose attendees work to prevent and undo wrongful convictions, is “The Presumption of Innocence.”

I’ve covered many flabbergasting things over the course of 25 years as a columnist, author, blogger and documentary host, but this one takes the cake.

It was just three months ago that King recklessly exploited the shooting death of 7-year-old Jazmine Barnes in Houston, Texas, to stoke racial fear and hatred. The little girl and her family, who are black, got caught in crossfire at a Walmart parking lot. The Black Lives Matter activist and columnist for the Intercept immediately pounced — using his huge Twitter platform, followed by 1.1 million people, to cast the incident as a racial hate crime. King splashed a photo of Robert Cantrell, a white man who had been arrested for robbery the same day as the Barnes shooting, all over social media.

“We’ve had 20 people call or email us and say he is a racist, violent a–hole and always has been. Just tell me everything you know,” Social Justice Detective King incited on Twitter. Cantrell’s family members faced vitriol and death threats online as a result of the irresponsible gossip-mongering. After two black men were arrested for the murder, King sputtered to save his reputation — first by claiming credit for passing on a tip that led to the arrests (which he kept quiet about while stoking anti-white hatred)…

…and then by doubling down with a fake-but-accurate defense.

“We live in a time where somebody could do something like this based purely on hate or race,” he smugly argued. “And that it turned out to not be the case I don’t think changes the devastating conclusion that people had thought something like that was possible.”

There’s nothing “humanitarian” or exemplary about such an attitude. This is race-hustling cynicism at its worst. It’s par for the twisted course for King, who is a serial apologist for treating people as guilty until proven innocent and for threatening those who call him out (including critics within the progressive left who have alleged he has ripped off the movement).

In May 2018, the Lying King led the witch hunt against innocent white Texas state trooper Daniel Hubbard by spreading the false claims of a black woman who lied about Hubbard raping her during a traffic stop. That admitted liar, Sherita Dixon-Cole, escaped prosecution based on a technicality. King’s reward? Moving up from the New York Daily News to a coveted position at the Harvard-affiliated Fair Punishment Project, which in part conducts research to prevent more wrongful convictions.

In 2014, King promoted the anti-cop “hands up, don’t shoot” lie debunked by none other than the Obama Justice Department, yet he still doesn’t care about the truth. “I’m not going to parse evidence or make some complex technical argument that Michael Brown did or didn’t have his hands up,” he defiantly retorted. “To me, it doesn’t matter if he did or he didn’t. It never has.”

As former New York City Police detective Sergeant John Paolucci, who is on the board of Uncuff the Innocent, which advocates for wrongfully convicted police officers, told me: “When the agenda is to instill in people a fear of the police, one creates an environment conducive to more deadly confrontations. … Having worked the most high-profile police involved cases in the media, I’m well aware that the whole truth is never reported in these investigations and the probative value of evidence that favors the police is diminished or omitted entirely when it hits the news.”

In 2015, King gloried in the wrongful rape convictions of former Oklahoma City police officer Daniel Holtzclaw, whose flawed case and forensic errors led six internationally renowned scientists to call for a retrial. He has failed to follow up because, of course, the truth doesn’t fit his narrative.

The “journalist” also maintained the same obstinate stance after his disgraceful sliming of football star Peyton Manning in 2016, when he attempted to ride the #MeToo publicity wave by recycling — and woefully misinterpreting — a 13-year-old court filing regarding a settlement with a female trainer who had claimed she was sexually harassed, and then changed her story seven years later. Instead of admitting error, he played victim.

It’s disturbing enough that King is being honored at the Innocence Conference, where many lawyers, activists, scientists and exonerees I admire will attend. Even worse, King heads up a publication called “The North Star,” which purports to “speak truth to power” and is aimed at young people of color.

Wrongfully convicted Marine Tim Wright and his wife, Danielle, wonder: “How can an individual with a reputation of making countless false accusations against white men, racially profiling whites and stirring up racial discourse in America be trusted with the hearts and minds of future generations of minority children?”

Or anyone, for that matter? This malicious individual who has repeatedly profited from undermining the presumption of innocence has no place pretending to defend it. That’s speaking truth to power.

What’s Up With Trump’s Multiple Clashes With GOP Lawmakers? Russia, Of Course

Besides McConnell, McCain, and Flake, he's also had behind the scenes interactions with Senators Corker and Tillis.

The post What’s Up With Trump’s Multiple Clashes With GOP Lawmakers? Russia, Of Course appeared first on RedState.

President Trump’s rancor with lawmakers from his own party should come as no surprise. He’s looking for cover that they’re not providing.

And while his public feuding with John McCain, Jeff Flake, and Mitch McConnell is well-documented, by now, there have been several others that he’s had more private clashes with.

A for instance would be the recently passed sanctions bill against Russia.

Trump expressed frustration over a bipartisan bill sanctioning Russia and tried to convince Senate Foreign Relations Chairman Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) that it wasn’t good policy, according to three people familiar with the call. Trump argued that the legislation was unconstitutional and said it would damage his presidency. Corker was unrelenting, these people said, and told Trump the bill was going to pass both houses with bipartisan support.

“He was clearly frustrated,” one person said of Trump’s call with Corker earlier this month. The bill cleared Congress overwhelmingly last month and Trump grudgingly signed it on Aug. 2.

Bummer. And his budding relationship with Russian strongman, Putin, was off to such a great start, too.

Russia has since expelled a number of U.S. diplomats, in response.

Another burr under Trump’s saddle is a bill that protects Robert Mueller (or any special counsel) from being fired by the president.

Trump dialed up Sen. Thom Tillis (R-N.C.) on Aug. 7, two days before a blunt call with the Senate majority leader that spilled over into a public feud. Tillis is working with Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.) on a bill designed to protect Robert Mueller, the independent counsel investigating the president’s Russia connections, from any attempt by Trump to fire him.

The Mueller bill came up during the Tillis-Trump conversation, according to a source briefed on the call — the latest signal of the president’s impatience with GOP senators’ increasing declarations of independence from his White House. Trump was unhappy with the legislation and didn’t want it to pass, one person familiar with the call said.

Spokespeople for both Tillis and Corker refused to discuss specifics of the conversations, but did confirm that the conversations took place.

Trump’s chewing out of GOP senators, according to people briefed on the calls, reflected the president’s frustration that fellow Republicans would make moves that could damage him, particularly on an investigation that he detests. Trump also complained about the Russian sanctions measure in a call with McConnell earlier this month that devolved into shouting. The New York Times first reported that Trump discussed the Russia probe with McConnell.

“It seems he is just always focused on Russia,” one senior GOP aide said.

That’s because he is.

In the couple of weeks John Kelly has been chief of staff, he’s attempted to exert some control over Trump’s unscheduled interactions with lawmakers. The president is said to have a habit of seeing a senator on television, getting a wild hair, and then having an assistant call that senator up.

Kelly has asked that there be a senior White House aide present whenever Trump make these calls, and that Trump be briefed on the topic he’s planning to call about.

That sure speaks volumes.

Embarrassing, cringe-worthy volumes.

The president needs to understand that he’s likely never going to get the approval of Democrats for anything he’s hoping to push. He needs the Republicans. He needs actual allies in Washington, and not just clingers.

He’s really not off to a good start.

It’s a Cult: Spiritual Adviser Paula White Makes Wild Claims About Trump’s Role in God’s Plan

Sane people should run very far away from anyone suggesting such a thing.

The post It’s a Cult: Spiritual Adviser Paula White Makes Wild Claims About Trump’s Role in God’s Plan appeared first on RedState.

It will be interesting to see if Trump supporters who thought Barack Obama’s involvement with Jeremiah White was a huge red flag—and make no mistake, it was—will show any concern over statements made by President Trump’s own spiritual adviser, prosperity gospel preacher and televangelist Paula White. She made some pretty wild claims on convicted fraudster and former (as far as we know) pervert Jim Bakker’s show.

While speaking on a panel on “The Jim Bakker Show,” White said that Trump’s presidential victory was similar to a story from the Hebrew Bible where a woman named Esther was chosen to be queen, since both parties were unlikely to be selected for their roles.

As the scripture goes, Esther was a young, orphaned Jewish woman living in exile who, through her wits and good looks, ends up being selected by the Persian king to be his queen at a time when Jews were widely persecuted.

Because of her new position of power, Esther was able to stop a plot to murder all the Jewish people in Persia. The Bible concludes that Esther was placed in her position as queen by God to fulfill this important mission.

On Tuesday, White compared Trump to Queen Esther, saying that he, too, was selected by God to carry out a divine plan.

I’ll be honest, televangelists generally make my skin crawl. When they start explaining current events with the Old Testament and making sleazy politicians out to be the ones chosen by God to carry out a divine plan, I get both the heebies and the jeebies. It’s even worse when there’s a big studio audience heaping a pile of amens on top of whatever pseudo-spiritual political rationale the preacher is laying down. These people are, at best, misinformed.

White went so far as to suggest that those opposing Trump are literally opposing God.

“They say about our president, ‘Well, he is not presidential.’ Thank goodness. Thank goodness. Thank goodness,” White said. “And I mean that with all due respect. Because, in other words, he is not a polished politician. In other words, he is authentically, whether people like it or not, has been raised up by God.”

“God says that he raises up and places all people in places of authority,” she continued. “It is God who raises up a king. It is God that sets one down. When you fight against the plan of God, you are fighting against the hand of God.” (emphasis added)

I have no quarrel with the Judeo-Christian concept that God raises up leaders and puts people in authority. With that comes the reality that not every person raised to a position of authority is put there for the immediate good of humanity. I’m fairly certain that Paula White and those who follow her weren’t saying the same thing about opposing Trump’s predecessor who God also placed in authority.

Let me be perfectly frank here, anyone who claims that disagreeing with any President’s agenda is tantamount to opposing God is crazy. Sane people should run very far away from anyone suggesting such a thing. To say it about Donald Trump makes you a certifiable lunatic or a dangerous liar.

Trump’s alleged Christian faith—which comes with a stated belief that he has never needed to ask forgiveness for anything—absolutely seems to be born of political expedience. I can’t say for sure what’s in his heart but even by his own admission he’s broken a few commandments. You do the math. Paula White sure doesn’t seem like much of a stickler for doctrine if her spiritual advice left Trump with the idea that he was immaculately conceived.

Erick Erickson made waves prior to Trump’s inauguration by calling White a”a prosperity gospel charlatan” and  “Trinity denying heretic.” Erickson pointed out that the doctrine of the Trinity was settled at the Council of Nicaea in A.D. 325. Those who deny it are by definition preaching something other than Christianity.

Since AD 325, it has been settled in the orthodoxy of the Christian church of every single Christian denomination that Jesus Christ is the only begotten son of God. Re-iterated in the First Council of Constantinople in AD 381, the Nicene Creed as we know it today contains these line:

I believe in one God the Father Almighty,
Maker of heaven and earth,
And of all things visible and invisible:
And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God,
Begotten of his Father before all worlds,
God of God, Light of Light,
Very God of very God,
Begotten, not made,
Being of one substance with the Father,
By whom all things were made;

This is literally 1,691 year old settled orthodoxy of every Christian denomination. Presbyterians, Catholics, Orthodox, Methodists, Baptists, Anglicans, and other Christian denominations, along with a few Episcopalian churches all say this creed. It, along with the Apostles Creed, are the two major, foundational creeds in Christendom.

At least one member of Trump’s religious advisory panel has walked away from Trump. White shows no signs of doubting Trump though. She certainly exemplifies the cult of Trump. Let’s hope people who support the President do so based on policy and not on religious fervor stirred up by a crackpot.

Hawaii Rep. Beth Fukumoto

Hawaii Rep. Beth Fukumoto

(Updates Below)

The racial discord in this country is both palpable and intensifying. One of the bothersome aspects however is when the people who supposedly decry the hatred and division are the very same stoking that foundry of intolerance. Note how those in the media question with dismay how it is the Nazi party has so much exposure these days, all while they cannot refrain from granting the SS-holes blanket coverage.

Equally vexing are politicians who supposedly speak out against the divisions in this country while highlighting those same social barricades enthusiastically. Let us now go to Mauka, in the county of Honolulu, Hawaii. This is the district where State Representative Beth Fukumoto originates. The politician has made a small splash on social media by posting a letter purportedly sent to her by a purported Donald Trump supporter.

Fukumoto had previously caused ripples in the aquamarine when she switched parties this year, from being a GOP representative to a Democrat. This switchover was said to be due to her being removed from her Minority Leader position, a move spurned by her comments made to the negative towards newly elected President Trump. This was really more of a lateral move, given Beth has posted pics of herself with liberal iconography, such as “She Persisted” posters, or sporting a magenta feminist vagina hat. Also, those scathing comments about Trump? They were delivered at a Women’s March rally.

(What’s the Hawaiian word for “RINO”?)

Now Fukumoto is drawing attention to herself based on a missive delivered to her office. The typewritten letter, dated 08 – 09, was posted to her personal Twitter account.

As many outlets in the media have dutifully detailed this as an example of hate, and repeated that Donald Trump is the cause, note the lack of journalistic curiosity. There are a number of questions regarding this correspondence, most which will go unasked.

I contacted Rep. Fukumoto’s office, and reached her spokesperson. I asked if the letter had been turned over to any law enforcement agency, and was told at this time that no, the letter had not been given to any authorities. This is after one full week from the letter being received. I had a number of other questions, including a request to have a picture of the full face of the envelope, but was then told that any further inquiry had to be delivered via email.

 

  • Why would someone from “La, Calif” be so concerned with a Hawaiian State Representative?
  • Why are the stamps on the envelope not postmarked?

 

stamp1

 

  • Why would someone use $0.10 stamps which were issued in 1975? And why would they separate the block when it does not give sufficient postage to deliver said envelope today?

 

stamp2

 

  • Has anyone tried tracking the USPS bar code shown at the bottom of the envelope? If that is a code that derives from a commercial account it may be traceable, or can track   the origination address. This would at the very least tell someone the location from where the letter had been mailed.

 

stamp3

 

At press time I had not received contact back from the spokesperson, nor Rep. Fukumoto herself. Considering the level of accusation being leveled towards the President the burden of proof to this culpability rests with Ms. Fukumoto.

UPDATE:

Following this post I did receive contact back from Rep. Fukumoto herself. She states that, contrary to what I had been told by her reps, they have reached out to authorities: “Yes, we’ve been in touch with law enforcement to see if it’s possible to determine the origin of the letter. The postmark of the letter indicated that it was from CA, but it’s faded so the city is not entirely clear.”

As for an image of the envelope she informed me that a pic had been provided to The Huffington Post. (Available here.) The writer, a resident of Hawaii, received this image Wednesday evening.

HuffPost sent a copy of the envelope to officials at the U.S. Postal Service in Honolulu, who confirmed that the enveloped was processed by a USPS center in California before it was sent to Honolulu.

Though talk of relocating the memorial began in 2015, Mayor Lyda Krewson, who assumed office in April of this year, revived the discussion, strongly advocating its removal. Arguments were raised on both sides of the issue.  There were some demonstrations — largely nonviolent, thankfully. And the memorial, which was dedicated in 1914, was ultimately removed in June.

I wanna feel sunlight on my face.
I see the dust-cloud
Disappear without a trace.

But the street which formerly led to it remained in place.  Until Monday. While most area residents focused their attention on the solar eclipse, Confederate Drive was being torn up by the City Streets Department.

The city streets department says it’s spending nearly $12,000 to add plants, flowers, and grass. Barring any weather problems, work should be completed by next week.

Some city leaders claim a master plan dating back to 1995 always included removing Confederate Drive in favor of green space. Since the road never served any other purposed or use, it city leaders said it makes sense to tear it up and turn it into a garden.

Fair enough. The street may well have served no other purpose – it certainly was never integral to my jogs or bike rides through the park. And I like green space as much as the next person. (As an aside, Forest Park really is a jewel, and I’m glad it’s part of the St. Louis landscape.)

And there may well have been such a plan in the works, though one wonders why it took 22 years to be implemented. (Come to think of it, we’re talking about city government here. Maybe one needn’t wonder all that much.)

Still, the timing is quite interesting, particularly given that a bill to rename the street “Scott Joplin Drive” is currently under consideration by the Board of Alderman. Guess that measure can be tabled now, and the City can move on to other pressing issues.

To be clear, I don’t have an issue with the Confederate memorial being removed from Forest Park and placed in a museum. Nor do I take issue with the removal of Confederate Drive, coincidental timing notwithstanding. Like many, though, I do wonder where we ultimately draw the line? And whether the recent push to tear down and rename will help heal old wounds or inflict new ones?

We’re still building and burning down love.

What should we do with Obama the racist?
"In Obama's America, the white kids now get beat up with the black kids cheering, 'Yay, right on, right on, right on, right on,'
We need segregated buses. This is Obamas America."
