Jordan's undeserved medal

Original Article

Posted By: Harlowe, 1/12/2021 10:33:58 PM

U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan didn’t deserve the Presidential Medal of Freedom. The nation’s highest civilian honor, it is supposed to be given to those “who have made especially meritorious contributions to the security or national interests of the United States, to world peace, or to cultural or other significant public or private endeavors,” as a White House news release put it. Jordan has done none of those things, but the Urbana Republican received the medal nevertheless in a private White House ceremony Monday. It was his reward for his service to President Donald Trump, not the nation.

Comments:

The abject hatred of Republicans apparently permeates even Podunk newspapers. Congressman Jim Jordan is not guilty of and does not deserve the shameful accusations railed against him in the editorial. He is a man to be admired and respected—he holds a BS in Economics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison; MA in Education from the Ohio State University; a JD from Capital University.

We opined about the MOF last night, after it was learned that Belichick spurned his (fine, give it to Brady instead). It's become so diluted that buying a star (that's actually how it's done) on Hollywood Boulevard means more. Even some of Trump's awardees are quite questionable.

The Republican-hatred rampant in so many institutions today will unexpectedly stop when the true haters come to punish their media & academia tools for "thought crimes." Human nature never changes as history repeats and repeats. I'll bet that these same fools cheered when Obama got his Nobel Prize.

I don't think Obama deserved the Nobel Prize, haven't yet begun his term. But then, I don't think Arafat deserved it either, but each is a bird of the feather.

Good one, #1. And let us not forget the awarding of the medal by Obama both to Ted Kennedy and Bill Clinton, two of the most disgraceful leaders of their age.

When you read the article you note that the Chronicle-Telegram is an "election corruption denier". That clearly establishes their political foundation.

Hundreds of National Guard troops deployed to Washington, D.C. for the Biden inaugural this week have tested positive for the COVID-19 China coronavirus or are in quarantine for exposure to the virus, according to a report by Politico published Friday. Troops have been seen resting and sleeping in close quarters since their arrival at the Capitol last week. Thursday night 5,000 troops were reported to have been ordered to rest in a parking garage on Capitol grounds, prompting outrage among Congressmen and Senators. Because of long shifts that keep them from going back to their hotel rooms in the city, troops have been taking breaks in close quarters.

One of the bigger issues never fully grasped by many Americans was President Donald Trump’s restraint in relation to the power of the federal government under the guise of COVID-19 action. No president in our lifetime was ever more reluctant to weaponize the opportunity to expand government; Donald Trump stood the gap. CTH warned since last summer of the ramifications if a leftist group used COVID-19 to expand federal power over peoples lives and livelihoods. Today, JoeBama’s team has unleashed a series of TEN EXECUTIVE ORDERS fully weaponizing the opportunity. (1) Executive order on COVID worker Safety, weaponized Dept of Labor, OSHA.

One thing recent history has taught America is the first storyline of major tragedies or controversies is never the most accurate. Americans were told by the Bush administration that they were sucker-punched by a surprise attack on 9/11 by terrorists, only to learn the CIA and FBI had significant advance evidence of the plot and its players and failed to connect the dots.(Snip)Since the weekend, major bombshell revelations already have substantially revised the initial story of a spontaneous mob overrunning an unsuspecting Capitol police force.

Think about this– Last week the demonic left used the assault on the US Capitol to take away your First Amendment right of Free Speech. Tens of thousands of Americans were removed from social media along with the US President. The far left tech giants took away President Trump’s ability to communicate freely to the American public. The next planned operation is to take your guns. We are very concerned the radical left is using this to start a firefight and take away your gun rights!  The left is unafraid.

Democrats, their activist media arm, and their Big Tech doorkeepers are perilously close to pressing their advantage far too far and alienating sympathetic right-leaning and centrist voters with their ongoing attacks on President Trump.

In a news conference Friday morning, Brown said he supports first invoking the 25th Amendment, which allows the vice president and a majority of the president's Cabinet to remove the sitting president.(Snip)But either way, Brown said his main concern is not punishing President Donald Trump but restricting what he could do over the next 12 days with national and domestic security. “This is beyond anything we’ve ever seen,” Brown said. “There’s no telling what this president might do in the next 12 days.”

Several unions that eagerly endorsed President Joe Biden during the 2020 presidential election are now learning the hard way what it means to support Democrat policies. During his first day in office, the newly-inaugurated president revoked the construction permit for the Keystone XL oil pipeline, thus destroying thousands of jobs. And not just any jobs — but union jobs. TC Energy Corp., the Canadian company that shares ownership of the pipeline with the Alberta government, had estimated that 10,000 jobs — in addition to the 1,000 already established — would be created in 2021 alone thanks to the construction of the pipeline.

(Or did you already forget that James Hodgkinson shot House Minority Whip Steve Scalise and three others on a softball field, in an attempted mass assassination of members of the House GOP caucus?) But after searching the Internet for a few hours, there only remain questions, and no answers about Ashli’s shooting.

President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill were momentarily left standing in the cold on Inauguration Day after the front doors of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue weren't opened for them – a breach of protocol caused by the firing of the chief usher of the White House hours earlier. With the world watching on, the 46th US President and his wife walked up the steps of their new home for the first time on Wednesday, as a small crowd of family members followed behind. [SNIP] They then embraced one another, before turning to venture on inside. But there was a problem: the doors didn’t open.
