By Michael Lodge - The Business Advisor - www.lodge-co.com I have spent the last two days watching two congressional hearings. The first was the IRS whistle-blowers and the second on the government silencing free speech on social media. Both times the Democrats in the hears attacked, brought up Trump, racism, and other subjects not even associated with either subject in the congressional hearing. They appeared angry, and hateful at everyone and everything. They attacked the whistle-blower’s integrity and then tried to censor RFK Jr. and lied about his statements. There was not one sign from the Democrats that they wanted to hear the testimony of the witnesses, instead they tried to trick them up, scold them, hamulate them. Democracy was not represented in the hearings by Democrat's.
Country Above Party: Kennedy was asked what happened to his party? It certainly is not the party of the Kennedy's. And he was right when he talked about his uncle’s inviting the other party leaders to his home and into his administration. They worked together for the betterment of the country, not the party. I will give you a good example of what he was talking about. Henry Cabot Lodge, a Republican, lost his seat to a Kennedy in Congress. However, Lodge went on and served various Presidents on foreign affairs issues. Lodge was then a running mate of Nixon against John F Kennedy and lost. However, Kennedy invited Lodge into the Whitehouse to advise Kennedy on the UN and other foreign issues. Lodge also went on and served under President Johnson as Ambassador to Vietnam. The old Democratic party under the Kennedy's reached out and worked together with the Republicans on important issues, it was clearly a different time. Reagan worked with Tip O’Neal and had a good working relationship. However, today's Democratic party is angry and unable to work with people across the aisle. It seldom happens. There seems to be a party wall that divides cooperation. It needs to change. It's time to tear down that wall.
Animosity is not a policy. Henry Cabot Lodge. Both sides of the aisle need to start acting like adults and do their job for the American people.
In recent months, serious allegations have been made regarding possible criminal tax fraud and legal misconduct by Hunter Biden and President Joe Biden. These allegations have raised concerns among the American people, who are now demanding action, accountability, and a fair investigation into the various matters. It is vital that the Department of Justice (DOJ), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) wholeheartedly support IRS whistleblowers and take measures to ensure that no retaliation is directed towards the investigators involved. Upholding the principles of the investigative process and the rule of law is essential to uncovering the truth and restoring public trust in our legal system. Moreover, it is imperative for Democrats in Congress to prioritize the facts over political affiliations and demonstrate ethical conduct when determining the need for action or improvement. The American people are calling for swift and transparent accountability, as their faith in legal fairness for all citizens has been severely shaken. The need for trust in our government, from top to bottom, is more crucial than ever.
Protection of Whistleblowers: Whistleblowers play an indispensable role in uncovering potential wrongdoing and safeguarding the integrity of our institutions. In the case of the Biden tax allegations, individuals who have come forward with information regarding possible criminal tax fraud must be protected from any form of retaliation. The DOJ, FBI, and IRS must ensure that these whistleblowers are shielded under existing whistleblower protection laws. It is imperative that these agencies guarantee the anonymity and security of these individuals, as it allows for a thorough investigation into the allegations and prevents any undue influence that could compromise the integrity of the process. Whistleblowers should feel confident and safe in their decision to come forward, as their courage and cooperation are crucial to upholding justice.
Respect for the Investigative Process and Rule of Law: Regardless of political affiliations or positions of power, it is vital to respect the investigative process and adhere to the rule of law. This principle applies to all individuals who are subjects of investigation, including Hunter and President Biden. The DOJ, FBI, and IRS must conduct a fair and impartial investigation into the allegations, ensuring that no influence or bias hampers the process. The integrity of these institutions is at stake, and any perception of political interference or favoritism could undermine public trust in their ability to carry out their duties effectively. To restore public confidence, these agencies must demonstrate their unwavering commitment to the rule of law by conducting a thorough and transparent investigation, free from any political pressures or undue influence.
Supporting Facts and Ethical Decision-Making: The responsibility to uncover the truth lies not solely with law enforcement agencies, but also with elected officials. Democrats in Congress have a duty to prioritize the facts presented before them, rather than blindly following party lines. It is essential that they support a comprehensive investigation into the allegations against President Biden and his son and on the issue of censoring of Americans by Government. By doing so, they would demonstrate their commitment to ethical decision-making and show that they prioritize justice over political expediency. Upholding the principles of fairness, transparency, and accountability is crucial to restoring faith in our legal system and ensuring that no one, regardless of their position, is exempt from facing the consequences of any wrongdoing.
Demand for Action and Accountability: The American people have lost faith in the fairness of our legal system, and rightly so, given recent events. To rebuild trust, swift action and accountability are necessary. Investigations must be respected by members of Congress, Senate, Executive Branch. If it leads to a criminal issue, it must be resolved through the legal channels. Congress refers it to the Justice Department, and they have the ability to impeach a President. But do it non-politically because the American people have had it. They see Americans being charged for lesser crimes but serving time, and when politicians or the elite are in criminal trouble the American people see nothing happening. The American people have had it and their frustrations are running high. The government has to stop playing politics and enforce the rule of law at every level of the government.
