It’s been just shy of a month since the elections in 2021 and 13 months since the debacle that was the 2020 elections. We are a little less than a year out from the mid-term elections in 2022. Everyone knows the talking points of the two major parties. The left adheres to the “fair and secure” lunacy ( I say lunacy because, even at this point, many Democrats agree that the 2020 election was far from fair or secure) while the right say there was a lot of issues with the election, possibly changing the outcome. What does the recent past say about the next election, already becoming a focus point?

The last I heard, around 60% of Americans think there was fraud in the 2020 election. Some of the numbers involved were blatant and the resulting cover-up was in-your-face! Arizona had a full forensic audit and evidence of fraud was presented to the State Senate. The Senate referred the evidence to the state AG, whose office says they are investigating. From where I sit, it appears that the investigation is being stalled hoping something comes along to distract Arizonians. I hope that doesn’t work. Other states are moving toward audits (only a full forensic audit should suffice!) or moving to legal action. This includes Georgia, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan. The concept that there was definite cheating is alive and moving forward!

The elections in 2021 was mixed. The recall election in California was rife with cheating. Big surprise! The New York elections were no surprises either. New Jersey, however, was a bit different, with a few gains for Republicans. In one of those races, a truckdriver, spending about $152 on his campaign, beat the sitting state Senate leader, This indicates a huge dissatisfaction among voters in the state. Virginia was a big win for the Republicans. The incumbent DemSocialist was constantly degrading parents who cared what was being taught their children or policies being inflicted upon the kids. Critical Race Theory and the 1619 Project were proven to be losing prospects for the DemSocialists in Virginia. Early on in the election process, reports started coming out that results might not be finalized for a few days after election night. The reason that didn’t come to pass I place squarely on the brave and determined pollwatchers and observers at precinct level that kept vigilance, not allowing a lot of the nefarious activities that plagued the 2020 Election! Bravo to those People!

Therein lies the future for the upcoming elections next year. If People get heavily involved in the voting process and report any infractions, it will make things harder to cheat! Of course, this will take a lot of manpower! But, this isn’t enough. The individual states need to fulfill their responsibilities for election integrity. They need to clean their voter rolls and approve voter ID. The state legislatures need to take back their control of election laws. It is ALREADY their responsibility! Most importantly, those guilty of wrongdoing in the fraud of 2020 need to be prosecuted! I’ve said it before and I’ll continue to do so. Without all of the above. we can never trust any election results!

Last Independence Day, the Biden Administration was touting the fact that our holiday meal would cost us $.14 less than the preceding year. I’m not sure how they came up with this figure; it could have been per hot dog or something like that. I don’t know. Prices were already going up within a month of the Biden regime taking office.

Since then, It has been nothing but a spending spree, with very little good to show for it! One bad policy after another has weakened the United States economically in every way. The increase in our national debt has had an adverse effect on inflation. The supply chain has been throttled back by regulation. Our loss of self-sufficiency in fuel production has almost doubled the price at the pump.

All this will make this Thanksgiving more expensive. If you’re flying or driving to Grandma’s house this year, it will cost more. The food on the table will likewise cost more. Family activities will cost more. There are those who have lost their jobs through policies that divide.

The DemSocialists spend their time and efforts blaming the harder times people are experiencing on Trump, although he hasn’t been in office for ten months and conditions were trending favorably when he left. But, judging from the approval rating Biden has, currently at 36% and falling, most people must know better.

No matter how difficult things are this Thanksgiving, there’s still a lot to give thanks for. There’s the sunrise and the sunset. There’s the beauty around you. There’s family and friends. The list goes on. This Thanksgiving Day, give thanks where it is due. All glory goes to the LORD!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Back in 1965, Paul Harvey did a piece called “If I Were The Devil”, which basically laid out the destruction of American society. It was a forceful warning to America, probably largely ignored by those who said, “That could never happen here”. For those interested, you can find the transcript here. It is amazing how prophetic it has become, especially the last line!

It received a lot of notice during the Obama regime, which was actively trying to supplant America’s position in the world. This period was a great time for the Socialists and the Communists because they couldn’t thrive under the principles that built our country. It was a full-on assault on Conservatives and the religious!

Now, under the current administration, they are apparently attempting to blow past the Obama years. To hear the Sewer Stream Media, everything is going great. Any hiccup is incidental to “building back better”. Some think it’s just Joe’s bungling. But, what if it’s not?

If, for what ever reason, they were trying to destroy the America we love and support, would they be doing anything differently? Aren’t they on a path to remove the country from its position as a world leader? What about our sovereignty?

One of this administration’s first actions was to scrap the Keystone pipeline and stop a lot of the drilling we were doing. This ended our self-sufficiency for gas and oil. We’re back to looking to other countries for our supplies. Some of that we are importing is coming from countries who do not like us. Gee, that doesn’t sound like too good an idea.

After the debacle in Afghanistan, where we pulled out of our military positions without notifying our Allies in country, we lost a lot of trust. Has anything been done to rectify that? No, not that I know of. The Pentagon shifted the responsibility of getting our citizens and Afghan’s (and their families) who had helped us over the past 20 years to the State Department, who botched the job, ultimately costing lives in the process. By the way, sources, other than government, say that there are still thousands of people we were supposed to get out are still there! But Biden managed to get out a bunch of undocumented Afghans out of the country and spread all over our own country.

With the “mismanaged” exit from Afghanistan, the military was a bit demoralized, as were the veterans who served there. Add to this the lectures our military has to endure on white supremacy and racism. Now, the vaccine mandates are causing many to leave rather than subject themselves to the vaccine. Those who did get the vaccine will have to worry about effects in the next 5-10 years. This doesn’t even take the build-up of the militaries of Russia and China into account.

Our southern border is wide open for human traffickers, drug cartel members and other nefarious types, but that’s okay with this administration. All of this should make for an interesting time as we talk among family members over the most expensive Thanksgiving meal in a long time! My position is it’s not by accident!

When I was younger a long time ago, there was a saying; “Crime doesn’t pay”. I spent my life working, getting paid for what I did, and, if I qualified for a bonus, I gladly accepted. I understood that anything done against the law, there were consequences I would have to pay. It was the way life worked. For most of us, that’s the way it still works.

Now, however, crime might pay for some. Wrapped up in the multi-trillion dollar bill being discussed in Congress is a provision to pay “reparations” to those who illegally crossed into our country and had children separated from them. The amount of this extravaganza is $450,000 each. At this point, I’m sure the language is still being drafted because the bill hasn’t passed yet and provisions in the bill are still being pulled to make the total price, currently at $1.7 Trillion, acceptable to enough to get it through. The thing to remember is, so far, everything that’s been pulled would have been to the benefit of American citizens to pay those who couldn’t care less for our country.

They want to pay a fortune to aliens who had children removed from their “care” after illegally crossing our borders. They broke the law as far as that goes. However, looking deeper, the children were separated because the adults couldn’t prove the children were theirs. These massive influxes of people crossing the borders was a perfect way for human traffickers or coyotes (and no, not the canine types) to make huge sums of money. President Trump stopped a lot of that from happening. President Biden is doing nothing to stop it, preferring to allow anyone and every one into the country and giving them free transport all over the country. Either way, this is proof of the Biden administration sanctioning a “Crime Pays” policy. They get paid for illegally crossing the border or they get paid for the inconvenience to the trafficking business.

Of course, you can put this right at the feet of Congress. For a lot of them, crime has been paying for years. Let’s face it; how can so many multi-millionaires come from a $174,000 salary? I doubt that happens legally. But, nobody is going to investigate wrong doing when you are one of the elite. In other words, that old saying about crime not paying, well, it doesn’t apply to everybody!

More and more people are beginning to feel some heat where their economic situation is concerned. We seem to be working harder and still losing ground. It’s hard to watch the evening news on network television paint such a rosy picture of our economy. Obviously, they aren’t in touch with any reality you know. I haven’t heard them tell the truth in ages. The truth of the matter is the average family is spending approximately $179 more a month than they did nine months ago for the same products.

Of course, chances are, you have trouble finding all of those products in stores. Some of this is caused by a lack of workers reporting to work because of Covid. That’s what the Sewer Stream Media says anyway. They say things will be fine shortly. The Government is taking care of things. My hair stood on end just writing that! More regulations and restrictions are being handed to businesses and industries every day. it’s what socialist governments do. And they’ll keep it up until Bernie Sanders is happy and all the shelves are empty like in Venezuela!

The gas pump isn’t really helping matters right now, is it? At the end of 2020, I was paying about $1.75/gallon. The closest gas to me currently is $3.05. Now, I know I’m not in the one of the most expensive areas, like California or New York, but that difference still hurts the old wallet. Of course, that will continue to climb as the United States has gone from being self-sufficient in gas and oil production to reliant on others for our needs.

How did we get here? At present, The United States is $28.88 Trillion in debt. This isn’t all Biden’s fault; he had a lot of help in this. But, he has surely accelerated the pace! To break that down, that’s $228,999 per taxpayer ($86,776 per citizen). Our debt owned by other countries is around $7.6 Trillion. This is not a good position to be in for our national security. And we are spending more than the Gross Domestic Produts is earning us!

On the employment front, we have about 153,000,000 in the workforce. But, there’s over 100,000,000 out of the workforce. Just about every business I drive by has a “Help Wanted” sign in the window. Our unemployment rate, as reported by the media is 4.8% (the U-3). However, if you use the U-6 formulation, the number is 8.1%. That will increase as companies are forced to lay off people who are not vaccinated. They will more than likely be added to the unemployable number, thus not figuring into the 4.8% figure.

If this causes you concern, just remember: the DemSocialists and some of their supporters among the Republicans are not finished spending yet! And don’t forget those new tax increases they want!

After the creation of The Constitution of the United States, the People determined that there was something missing. There needed to be assurances that their God-given natural rights would always be protected. The Bill of Rights was written with that intent. It laid out specific rights and guaranteed those rights against violation. In 1791, it became part of the US Constitution. It stated that these rights weren’t created by the government and couldn’t be stripped by the government!

The First Amendment of the Bill of Rights protects the freedom of speech, religion and the press. It also protects the right to peaceful protest and to petition the government. Freedom of religion has been under attack for many years. Religion makes living an immoral, perverted and indecent life difficult. Freedom of the press has been a joke for a couple of decades at least. Only a few outlets report actual news. The rest spout nothing but propaganda, calling the few true news sources conspiracy theorists! Freedom of speech has been attacked numerous times and defended successfully all the way up to the Supreme Court. But, it continues to be assaulted.

Earlier this week, Joe Biden asked his Attorney General, Merrick Garland, to declare any person arguing against the use of Critical Race Theory, Project 1619, mask mandates or sex education at a school board meeting a domestic terrorist. There was agreement between the two to employ the FBI to harass parents wanting only the best for their children. Now, granted that there have been some board meeting that have gotten loud, but most of the time, it was instigated by intransigence among the board members. Recently, a nearby county school board meeting was cancelled after members saw 50 parents wanting to speak. The meeting was just ended abruptly, and the meeting was rescheduled for the following week in a closed session! The parents were definitely upset, but the members didn’t want to hear their voices and they got their way.

School board members are elected officials. They should be responsible to the People. They are, after all, responsible for determining policy to educate our children! Way too many times, the members are in the pocket of the teachers’ groups or unions and too many of them want to indoctrinate to an agenda as opposed to actually educating.

One of the very few good things that came out of Covid (funny how that keeps popping up everywhere) was parents had the opportunity to see what was going on in the “classroom” as kid were taught remotely in their own homes. Parents were incensed and rightfully so! Those school board members should hear how those parents feel. Those children do not belong to those members to do whatever they want. They are the responsibility of those parents!

The FBI doesn’t belong in those meetings. They don’t need to be harassing parents protecting their children! Maybe they should go and do their actual duty. They could go and investigate election fraud (they can learn how from the forensic auditors in Arizona) or track down some human traffickers. You know, real bad guys instead of trying to entrap parents!

I get a lot of poll questions thrown my way. Many are sent as a fundraising tool. Others are just an effort to get an email for future advertisements. The ones I like most are those that seriously ask a question, then give the results at that point. The last category is the only one in which I participate.

This morning, AMAC (The Association of Mature American Citizens) sent me their weekly poll. To paraphrase, the question asked which mistake by the Biden Administration was the greatest threat to the country. The choices are as follows:

  1. The border crisis
  2. The Afghanistan pull-out and stranding of citizens
  3. The handling of COVID
  4. The economic policies
  5. Unsure

Now personally, I believe there should have been another choice. My choice would have been “None of these were a mistake”!

The Biden Administration has always wanted an open borders policy. They deliberately opened the southern border for that goal. Their plan is to let as many people into the country as they can, ship them all across the country, “lose” them, grant them amnesty then give them the right to vote (DemSocialist, of course). I doubt that the Haitians who were gathered in Del Rio, Texas were sent back to Haiti. They are now all over the United States, probably with taxpayer money. The Central Americans normally at our borders are in camps all along the southern states. The Afghan refugees have been sent to military bases “for processing” but many of them are just walking off of the base. It’s certainly not military members providing security! Lastly, amnesty is in one of those Infrastructure bills just waiting to be passed.

The sudden pull-out from Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan and the complete mismanagement of the withdrawal of American citizens, Afghans who helped Americans and should have a special visa, and the refugees was absolutely a debacle, or in military jargon, a Charlie Foxtrot! But was it a classic case of bureaucracies not working together and getting people killed or was it a plan to demoralize our military and ruin relations with governments who have worked hand in hand for years?

The handling of the China Virus was no mistake. It has always been about dividing people. Do you mask or not? Do you get the vaccine or not? Do you need the vaccine if you’ve had the virus before and have antibodies? Do you lockdown or not? These questions are coming to a head all over the world. There are protests in Great Britain, France, Italy and Australia. It’s at a boiling point here!

The economic situation is obviously by design. The DemSocialists want to destroy Capitalism, but can’t because they need the businesses to tax at a crippling rate so they can spend all of their money. Let’s face it; they are going to need around $25-30 TRILLION to waste on all of their dream programs.

So, that’s my case for the sixth choice of “it’s no mistake”. Yes, Biden is completely inept, but those who are running him are pure evil. Prove me wrong.

When you begin a discussion on Covid, there often is a move to pigeon-hole participants into various categories. In all honesty, I guess that goes on in just about any discussion. It’s that kind of a divisive world. But, in regards to Covid, division is almost automatic. Many people are being turned away from businesses because they aren’t vaccinated. A couple of businesses are going the opposite direction and refusing service to those who are vaccinated. Personally, limiting your clientele for any reason just doesn’t seem like a good business plan.

One phrase heard a lot is “Follow the science”. That usually works. But Covid is different. Actual science is provable. Given certain data, the results should always be the same. If a new valid parameter to that data is added, the result may change, but that new data, when tested, should give the same new result. If someone tells you the science is settled, question that source. Fauci uses that phrase quite a bit and he has been on every side of an argument at some point in his life. I swear, it’s like he goes along with whoever pays the most. True science can’t be bought. However, data can be manipulated. When an experiment starts with a desired outcome and the data is massaged to get to that desired outcome, that’s no longer science!

That phony outcome becomes Sewer Stream Media fodder. It gets disseminated to the public, too many of whom don’t do any form of questioning of that information and take that fiction as fact. The science is settled so it must be true. If this information is on every platform you use, every television screen, or every governmental meeting you see, it must be true. But, is it really?

The origins of Covid is uncertain. I believe it came from a bioweapons lab in Wuhan, China. Others, including the media, says it came from a bat in a wet market. Dr. Fauci says maybe the lab, although his agency funded the research at the Wuhan lab! Once the virus showed up here, it was within a couple of weeks before they had the virus isolated. That’s pretty miraculous. of course, they could have gotten the sequencing from the Chinese, but that seems a little strange that the data would be trusted. however the structure of the virus was determined, it took just a few months before vaccines were ready for trials. The first two Messenger RNA vaccines were in the mix. Immediately, critics with impressive credentials began raising questions about long term consequences. Of course, those questions remain and will remain for the next five+ years. But, by all means, follow the science!

At this point, everyone who wants a vaccine in the United States has had one or two injections of the three vaccines available here. The Biden Administration wants more people to take the jab. Now we have mandates! You have to have the injection if you want work, eat out, go to the gym, etc. Of course the vaccine doesn’t prevent the virus and doesn’t make it a lighter case when you do get Covid. It won’t even keep you from death. But, follow the science!

The media tells you that it’s the unvaccinated who are getting sick and filling the hospital beds. Yet our borders are allowing anyone across and the illegals are being shipped all across the country, but more heavily in the red states. They certainly aren’t getting vaccinated at the border. How do we know they aren’t the ones filling the beds? Who checks? Since the hospitals are paid for treating Covid patients and paid extra for intubating them, how can a spokesperson from the hospital be trusted to tell us the truth?

Then again, there is a leaked zoom meeting between hospital managers for a group of hospitals in the area I live. During the meeting, one of the participants says they need to scare these people (the unvaccinated) into getting the vaccine so they needed to inflate the numbers of cases and the number of beds being used. The video has made the rounds. Even the local NBC affiliate had to report on it! Of course, the numbers have been inflated from the very start of Covid!

When it comes down to it, everything that is being done is for division of the country. They ask you to choose between security of the vaccine against your freedom to go to work and go to the store. They tell you choosing freedom is selfish. Benjamin Franklin once said, “They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.” The DemSocialists don’t want you to have liberty. But, follow the science.

Thomas Paine once wrote, “Government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state, an intolerable one.” While there is truth to this statement, most of us would prefer parts of our various governments not take up the mantle for evil. Now, I have voted for the lesser of two evils before and regretted it. Let’s face it: the lesser of two evils is still evil. This week, we actually have a political party looking to Satan for salvation!

Let me clarify. Last week, the US Supreme Court ruled that a Texas abortion bill was constitutional. It was signed into law by Gov Greg Abbott amid the expected outcries from the Sewer Stream Media, telling their sheep that this law bans abortion. It, of course, does no such thing. It does make it illegal for a doctor to perform an abortion after a heart beat is detected. It’s hard to argue when life starts, when the argument includes a heart beat. That is a definite sign of life!

Actually, I don’t think there’s really an argument of when life starts. My Christian belief says life starts at conception. There are two sides to this story though. On one side, we have the Pro-Life movement, of which I am a part. On the other side, there’s the Pro-Abortion group. One political party, the Democrat Party prefers the label Pro-Choice, but that’s pretty much a false narrative as the only choice pushed is to abort the pregnancy. I mentioned the Democrat Party, because every election cycle, right there on their platform, they proudly proclaim Pro-Choice (phony name for Pro-Abortion).

As a Conservative, I disagree with just about everything the Democrat Party stands for. I believe their platform goes against every American principle. I hardly ever thought of them as evil though… until this year. In 2021, they have done everything they can to destroy the economy, our standing among other countries, our technology, our children’s education, and in the energy field. Every step they take, I ask how much further into the depths of the morass of evil intentions can the Democrats go. Now, we have an answer!

The Democrats want to jump on the wagon driven by the Satanic Temple of Texas in suing the Lone Star State. They say the law violates their religious freedom to kill babies as long as they want to before birth. Of course, there are several Democrats that think it’s just fine to deliver the baby, then kill it! Pure evil! That’s called murder! It looks to me like the Democrat Party has sold its soul (or something) to the Devil. I wonder if they get his endorsement in the next election cycle.

Well, we are officially out of Afghanistan, and ahead of schedule. President Biden’s date certain for withdrawal was 31 August and the last aircraft was wheels up at 0030 (local time) that morning. At yesterday’s press conference, Biden referred to the evacuation mission as an “extraordinary success”. Really?

The mission began with the complete abandonment of the Bagram Air Base in the middle of the night. Afghanis reporting to work at the base the next morning were asking each other the question, “Where are the Americans?”. But, we left a lot of equipment behind, from uniforms, body armor, a weapons cache that makes Fast and Furious look like amateur hour, trucks, helicopters and aircraft.

Now, the Taliban were sitting on their heels just waiting for the withdrawal of forces to assert control over the country. They began eating up the country, one province at a time. At a press conference around early August, Biden told reporters that the intelligence he had said the 300,000 man Afghan Army would be able to maintain control of the region over the 70-80,000 Taliban forces. That proved wildly wrong! In a short time, Taliban had Kabul surrounded to the point we had to send US Marine and Army units back to aid in the evacuation of our US Embassy personnel, American citizens, Afghans who had helped our military and diplomats (thus becoming enemies of the Taliban) and their families.

With Americans in control of the airport in Kabul, the Embassy was evacuated there, then flights took off out of Afghanistan. The evacuation was in full swing. At the same time, Taliban forces were establishing choke points around the airport to keep the people they were looking for from getting away. Men, women and children were being pulled out and escorted away to answer for their crimes of wanting freedom!

Planes were being loaded with Afghans wanting to leave, but little in the way of vetting was taking place. Many of us will remember the pictures of Afghani people trying to hold onto the outside hull of C-17’s at take-off and falling back to the ground. We were told that vetting would take place in neighboring countries, but those countries started balking at the numbers of refugees arriving in their countries. They stopped taking flights. The planes continued to be loaded and flown out. Tens of thousands of Afghans fled their country, but we don’t know with certainty who they are . Many arrived with no ID at all. Where are they?

Press conferences from the White House and the Pentagon asking the Taliban for assistance in allowing people through the check points. It became obvious to many that the Taliban were the ones in control. Joe Biden set the end date as 31 August. He said every American and Afghan SIV holder would get out by that date. As that date approached, the Taliban spokesman said there would be no extension. Basically, we weren’t negotiating; we had surrendered.

Then, the bomb went off, killing 11 Marines, a Navy Corpsman and an Army soldier and wounding many others, both military and civilian. Biden’s first act was to blame Trump, who had left office on 20 January. Biden signed 40 or so executive orders ending programs and plans Trump had made, including the plans for withdrawal to be completed by the end of May!

Biden’s promise to get everyone out failed. There are still Americans in Afghanistan. The Pentagon says it is now the mission of the State Department to get them out. Their estimate is around 250 people, but people on the ground are saying it is many more. There are several groups of US veterans who are still working to get them out. Last night one of the groups said they got a plane out with over 500 people aboard. More remain.

Joe Biden’s approval rating is down to 47% (yeah, right) and he has offended the families of the heroes who died over there. He has demeaned everyone who ever served in Afghanistan. If this was an “extraordinary success”, I’d hate to see this Administration’s idea of a debacle!
