The cock fight





"I only know this. So long as this "cock fight" continues, it is not the Republicans who are being hurt. It is not the Democrats either. It is America."



Relax! There is nothing salacious about this title! There really are cock rights with turkeys and roosters. This year, after having decades of turkeys in groups of various sizes, we had our first cock fight. To do this as sport is against the law in most states. However, in nature - it is the way some animals behave.

Anyhow, two of our "Jakes" started going after each other about 8 in the morning. At first my wife thought they were playing or goofing around. Then the war cries started and they were trying to bite each other on the neck. Then a third Jake joined in. It was like one of those big battle royal wrestling matches of old. I finally had to go outside and break it up before one of them got hurt.

Why do I bring this up? Roosters, Toms or Jakes usually fight over a hen, territory, or power (who is going to be alpha). We can see the same thing going on right now in Washington. This one is for power. The struggle is between the former President and the current President. And this is going to be one for the ages. It all came to a head yesterday (Saturday) morning about 6 am Eastern time.

President called out former President Obama for doing something scurrilous and possibly illegal. Mark Levin was the one who really blew the lid off the issue. When President Trump got wind of it, the "ship hit the sand". Then "cock fight" then started in earnest between the current POTUS and the former one. 

This story might have "legs" for the following reasons:

  • Mark Levin is no fly by night hit artist like some are on the internet. He is highly respected, a Constitutional lawyer, and would not dream to pass on a story unless it really passed the sniff test.
  • Even though I am sure President Trump likes and respects Mark Levin, I do not believe he would have unleashed a "Twitter storm" unless he had more than one source for this story.
  • There have been way, way too many leaks in this short time Trump has been President to be a coincidence. It is felt my many that since Trump cannot get his lower level people approved through much delayed Senate hearings, there are many Obama leftovers in State and Defense planting mines in the streets.
The bottom line is this. Some believe that Obama was so ticked that Hillary would not carry out his "third term", he decided to so "scorched Earth" with Trump's presidency. That may or may not be true.

I only know this. So long as this "cock fight" continues, it is not the Republicans who are being hurt. It is not the Democrats either. It is America.
