BEHOLD! A REVELATION

FHDA

While the Republicans cannot fix all that ails our nation,
it is the Democrats who are at the root of her problems.

Bottom line…

To open their eyes, so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God.

IT'S NOT A CONSPIRACY THEORY: THE DEMOCRATS ARE PLANNING TO STEAL THE VOTE IN 2022 AND 2024

VOTER-FRAUD

It is hardly a conspiracy when the plan to interfere in coming elections is spelled out in a Presidential Executive Order…

Executive Order 14019 of March 7, 2021 -- Promoting Access to Voting (Excerpts)

[OCS: How the scheme works is relatively simple. Concentrate federal agency money and programs to “get out the vote” in swing states and population centers that favor Democrats. And to give the appearance of bi-partisan application of the order, provide support in areas where the GOP is already disadvantaged.]

Sec. 3. Expanding Access to Voter Registration and Election Information.

Agencies shall consider ways to expand citizens’ opportunities to register to vote and to obtain information about, and participate in, the electoral process.

(a) The head of each agency shall evaluate ways in which the agency can, as appropriate and consistent with applicable law, promote voter registration and voter participation. This effort shall include consideration of:

(i) ways to provide relevant information in the course of activities or services that directly engage with the public—including through agency materials, websites, online forms, social media platforms, and other points of public access—about how to register to vote, how to request a vote-by-mail ballot, and how to cast a ballot in upcoming elections;

(ii) ways to facilitate seamless transition from agencies’ websites directly to State online voter registration systems or appropriate Federal websites, such as Vote.gov;

(iii) ways to provide access to voter registration services and vote-by-mail ballot applications in the course of activities or services that directly engage with the public, including:

[OCS: Ensure the system is awash in blank ballots.]

(A) distributing voter registration and vote-by-mail ballot application forms, and providing access to applicable State online systems for individuals who can take advantage of those systems;

[OCS: Ensure the ballots are filled out the “right way.”]

(B) assisting applicants in completing voter registration and vote-by-mail ballot application forms in a manner consistent with all relevant State laws; and

[OCS: Allow allegedly non-partisan organizations to camp out on federal property. Denying some organizations equal access.]

(C) soliciting and facilitating approved, non-partisan third-party organizations and State officials to provide voter registration services on agency premises;

(iv) ways to promote and expand access to multilingual voter registration and election information, and to promote equal participation in the electoral process for all eligible citizens of all backgrounds; and

(v) whether, consistent with applicable law, any identity documents issued by the agency to members of the public can be issued in a form that satisfies State voter identification laws.

[OCS: Overseeing the programs is one of the most corrupt and partisan of the Obama acolytes, Susan Rice, the current Assistant to the President for Domestic Policy. For those who do not remember, Rice was associated with lies about the Benghazi scandal, the Trump-Russia hoax, the unmasking scandal, and the last-minute self-serving memo attempting to exonerate Barack Obama by quoting him using the phrase “by the book” in a January 5, 2017 meeting discussing spying on an American citizen and Trump appointee General Mike Flynn. The duplicitous Rice sent the memo to herself on January 20, at 12:15 p.m., just after President Trump was sworn in at noon that day.]

(b) Within 200 days of the date of this order, the head of each agency shall submit to the Assistant to the President for Domestic Policy a strategic plan outlining the ways identified under this review that the agency can promote voter registration and voter participation.

[OCS: The 200 days ended on December 22, 2021, and excluded weekends and federal holidays. No federal agency has responded to a FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) request revealing the plan, the budget, or the implementation more than six months after the deadline.]

[OCS:  Allow federal agencies to act as state-approved registration centers.]

(c) The head of each agency shall evaluate where and how the agency provides services that directly engage with the public and, to the greatest extent practicable, formally notify the States in which the agency provides such services that it would agree to designation as a voter registration agency pursuant to section 7(a)(3)(B)(ii) of the National Voter Registration Act.

[OCS:  Provide voting opportunities to federal employees and contractors that may not be available to employees in the private sector. Since most government workers vote Democrat to preserve funding and employment, this would benefit the Democrats. Additionally, insert partisan government employees into state election systems.]

Sec. 6. Increasing Opportunities for Employees to Vote.

(a) coordinate with the heads of executive agencies, as defined in 5 USC 105, to provide recommendations to the President, through the Assistant to the President for Domestic Policy, on strategies to expand the Federal Government’s policy of granting employees time off to vote in Federal, State, local, Tribal, and territorial elections. Such recommendations should include efforts to ensure Federal employees have opportunities to participate in early voting.

(b) Coordinate with the heads of executive agencies, as defined in 5 USC 105, to provide recommendations to the President, through the Assistant to the President for Domestic Policy, on strategies to better support Federal employees who wish to volunteer to serve as non-partisan poll workers or non-partisan observers, particularly during early or extended voting periods.

[OCS: Capture the prison and probation vote – which can be coercively manipulated and anonymized to allow ineligible felons to vote. And since a high proportion of incarcerated Democrat-voting minorities and Democrats are soft on crime, the benefit of this provision is decidedly Democrat. The Democrat translation of facilitating is coercing. Note, they also go after “formerly incarcerated” individuals.] 

Sec. 9. Ensuring Access to Voter Registration for Eligible Individuals in Federal Custody.

(a) The Attorney General shall establish procedures, consistent with applicable law, to provide educational materials related to voter registration and voting and, to the extent practicable, to facilitate voter registration, for all eligible individuals in the custody of the Federal Bureau of Prisons.

(c) The Attorney General shall establish procedures, consistent with applicable law, for coordinating with the Probation and Pretrial Services Office of the Administrative Office of the United States Courts to provide educational materials related to voter registration and voting to all eligible individuals under the supervision of the Probation and Pretrial Services Office, and to facilitate voter registration and voting by such individuals.

(d) The Attorney General shall take appropriate steps, consistent with applicable law, to support formerly incarcerated individuals in obtaining a means of identification that satisfies State voter identification laws, including as required by 18 USC 4042(a)(6)(B). 

The plan is not a secret...

REP. TED BUDD LEADS COALITION CALLING FOR AN INVESTIGATION OF BIDEN’S EXECUTIVE ORDER ON VOTING

Rep. Ted Budd (R-NC) and House Election Integrity Caucus Chairs Claudia Tenney (R-NY) and Mike Garcia (R-CA) led a coalition of 36 House members to send a letter to Acting Director of the Office of Management and Budget Shalanda Young requesting documents and an investigation into President Biden’s executive order empowering every federal agency to engage in election-related activities.

First, the EO commands the head of every federal agency to submit to the President’s Domestic Policy Advisor, Ms. Susan Rice, a plan outlining the steps their agency will take to “promote voter registration and voter participation.” It makes no sense for agencies that do not enforce federal voting laws to engage in election-related activities. Commanding every federal agency to develop a plan to engage in this kind of election activity is a blatant overreach of power and authority.

Second, the EO mandates that all federal agencies support “approved” third-party organizations to provide voter registration services on federal agency premises located in states across the nation. Determining which third-party organizations will be approved, by whom, and based on what criteria is conveniently missing from the EO. We are concerned that agencies will not be prevented from selecting nominally-nonpartisan organizations to carry out these services.

Third, and perhaps most troubling, this EO is nearly identical to a federal election takeover plan crafted by the radical left-leaning group known as Demos. A cursory review of this EO reveals a striking similarity between what this EO calls for and the plan developed by Demos and published on their website in December 2020. What is more, the Demos plan also called for the weaponization of the DOJ to be used as a tool to attack opponents who stand in the way of attempts to federalize elections. We have already seen this take shape with the Biden DOJ’s meritless lawsuit attacking Georgia’s election integrity law, and the recent voting guidance published by the DOJ. That guidance—a thinly veiled threat against those states that are willing to stand up to this administration’s effort to federalize elections—is troubling.

This EO’s strategy appears to enable the Biden administration to use federal government resources, funded by American taxpayers, to circumvent newly-passed state election integrity laws. These laws make it easier to vote and harder to cheat. The Biden Administration’s ongoing efforts to federalize state-run elections will erode these important protections. <Source>

Bottom line...

This appears to be a violation of the Hatch Act of 1939, which was passed to prohibit civil service employees in the executive branch from engaging in some forms of political activity. 

Like anything involving the progressive communist democrats, it is likely to serve our enemies, both foreign and domestic.

We are so screwed.

THE NEXT TIME THE REPUBLICANS CLAIM TO SUPPORT THE CONSTITUTION: TELL THEM TO POUND SAND

On the day of a significant Supreme Court decision upholding the Second Amendment rights of all citizens, the GOP, once again, snatched defeat from the jaws of victory to screw law-abiding Americans and advance the communist dream of disarming Americans to create a larger victim pool in America.

Mm

Lead by the Senate Minority Leader, corrupt douchebag Mitch McConnell, the Senate passed another progressive communist democrat assault on the Second Amendment and advance the Democrat agenda by a vote of 65 to 34, with 15 Republicans joining Democrats in support of the measure. Had the fifteen voted with the

Here are the fifteen RINOs (Republicans In Name Only) who sold out law-abiding Americans…

  1. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, Senate minority leader
  2. Roy Blunt of Missouri
  3. Richard Burr of North Carolina
  4. Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia
  5. Bill Cassidy of Louisiana
  6. Susan Collins of Maine
  7. John Cornyn of Texas
  8. Joni Ernst of Iowa
  9. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina
  10. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska
  11. Rob Portman of Ohio
  12. Mitt Romney of Utah
  13. Thom Tillis of North Carolina
  14. Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania
  15. Todd Young of Indiana

Of the fifteen GOP traitors, only four (Blunt, Burr, Portman, and Toomey) are retiring at the end of their terms.

Two Republicans did not vote

  1. Tom Cotton of Arkansas (Unknown)
  2. Kevin Cramer of North Dakota (Serious Hand Injury)

Required For Majority: 1/2

What about Tom Cotton?

Tc-t1

Bottom line…

It appears that giving the Senate to the GOP in 2022 will, once again, be rendered ineffective by the GOP’s leadership and the RINO establishment globalists who jump the aisle on significant votes. Unlike the progressive communist democrats who maintain party discipline with strong, solid leadership and effective financial and procedural penalties to keep transgressors in check, the GOP lacks both the balls and the discipline to advance the Republican agenda.

We are so screwed.

RED FLAGS ARE FLYING FOR THE REPUBLICAN PARTY AND LAW-ABIDING AMERICAN CITIZENS

RussiaSpearheaded by fourteen squishy RINOs (Republicans In Name Only), once again, members of the GOP have given aid and comfort to the progressive communist democrats.

Buried under the results of disastrous domestic and foreign policies and lacking any tangible accomplishments heading into the mid-term election cycle, fourteen GOP Senators rushed to snatch defeat out of the jaws of victory by giving the progressive communist democrats not only a “win” on gun control, but a “bi-partisan” win demonstrating their leadership in a matter of national importance.

The culprits are Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), Joni Ernst (R-IA), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and Todd Young (R-IN), John Cornyn (R-TX), Thom Tillis (R-NC), Richard Burr (R-NC), Susan Collins (R-ME), Mitt Romney (R-UT), Bill Cassidy (R-LA), Rob Portman (R-OH), Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO). All are chameleons who will do or say anything to preserve their perks, privileges, and purloined profits. These corrupt douchebags do not represent their respective constituencies, they represent themselves!

And, if that wasn’t enough, we find Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) hard at work to complete the destruction of the GOP’s almost-guaranteed election superiority…

Sen. John Cornyn Hints at Amnesty, Pro-Migration Deal with Democrats

Texas GOP Sen. John Cornyn suggested Tuesday evening he would push through an immigration bill with amnesty advocate Sen. Alex Padilla (D-CA).

The suggestion came as Cornyn congratulated Republicans and Democrats as they voted for a bill to curb gun violence.

C-t-1

Now, he is back-pedaling which usually signals the truth of his original comments…

GOP gun bill negotiator John Cornyn says he was joking when he said he would move on to immigration reform now that gun bill is in hand

  • John Cornyn is walking back his comment saying he will work an immigration deal after negotiating with Democrats on gun reform legislation
  • The bipartisan bill passed the Senate on Tuesday evening
  • On the floor of the Senate, Cornyn was overheard saying to a Democratic senator: 'First guns, now it's immigration'
  • 'The Democrats and their allies in the media really can't take a joke,' Cornyn told conservative outlet Breitbart in Wednesday. 'There's no secret amnesty bill'
  • Cornyn was booed at the Texas annual Republican Party convention last Friday for his work negotiating a gun legislation bill with Democrats  <Source>

Like all legislation, the devil is in the details, the "do something" gun control bill is a red flag danger for law-abiding American citizens…

About those red flag laws that can be used to remove guns from mentally-ill, violent individuals, or domestic violence suspects – while the legislators promise to protect an American’s right to due process and protection under the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments, the law is vague. While it promises that you have a “right to an attorney,” no public defender is available-- and you will have to pay for your own attorney – spending hundreds or thousands of dollars for representation. An apparent attempt to make gun ownership unavailable to the poor, women, and minorities that need a force multiplier to stave off injury or death.

Likewise, there is no penalty for those who improperly or maliciously deprive you of your God-given right to self-defense and your Second Amendment right to own and bear arms. One can easily imagine an evildoer disarming his intended victim by filing an anonymous complaint or an activist teacher filing against a student’s parents.

For juveniles, enhanced background checks would open up juvenile records and possibly prevent further career-killing expungements of criminal records.

The legislation defines “domestic partners” and excludes boyfriends and girlfriends.

The legislation imposes additional burdens on those wishing to sell their gun collections by demanding a federal firearms license before the sale if a profit is involved.

Fifteen years for ammunition smuggling? Imagine leaving a few rounds accidentally in your travel case. Boom -- you are a felon.

But, most importantly, the legislation does nothing to curtail criminals, crazies, and terrorists who neither respect nor follow the law. Criminals and terrorists do not legally purchase guns at gun stores. Mentally ill individuals will have their mental health status flagged, which could be used by landlords, employers, insurers, schools, and others.

Bottom line…

A bigger, more extensive, and more intrusive government is not the answer. Just look at what is being funded by this bill – including communist front groups shilling for the Democrat Party.

Legislation rarely solves problems; otherwise, the inner cities would not be awash with blood.

It is time that Republicans held their party to stricter standards and quit providing aid and comfort to our enemies, both foreign and domestic.

It’s not about gun control, it’s about crime control.

We are so screwed.

THE WISDOM OF THE PAST AMERICA IGNORES

Btf

Seventy-two years ago, a Republican Senator, a woman from Maine, stood up for America. Her speech to the Senate, a "Declaration of Conscience," has never been more relevant.

Margaret_Chase_Smith"Declaration of Conscience."

For Release Upon Delivery
Statement of Senator Margaret Chase Smith
June 1, 1950


Mr. President:

I would like to speak briefly and simply about a serious national condition. It is a national feeling of fear and frustration that could result in national suicide and the end of everything that we Americans hold dear. It is a condition that comes from the lack of effective leadership in either the Legislative Branch or the Executive Branch of our Government.

That leadership is so lacking that serious and responsible proposals are being made that national advisory commissions be appointed to provide such critically needed leadership.
I speak as briefly as possible because too much harm has already been done with irresponsible words of bitterness and selfish political opportunism. I speak as simply as possible because the issue is too great to be obscured by eloquence. I speak simply and briefly in the hope that my words will be taken to heart.

I speak as a Republican, I speak as a woman. I speak as a United States Senator. I speak as an American.

The United States Senate has long enjoyed worldwide respect as the greatest deliberative body in the world. But recently that deliberative character has too often been debased to the level of a forum of hate and character assassination sheltered by the shield of congressional immunity.

It is ironical that we Senators can in debate in the Senate directly or indirectly, by any form of words impute to any American, who is not a Senator, any conduct or motive unworthy or unbecoming an American -- and without that non-Senator American having any legal redress against us -- yet if we say the same thing in the Senate about our colleagues we can be stopped on the grounds of being out of order.

It is strange that we can verbally attack anyone else without restraint and with full protection and yet we hold ourselves above the same type of criticism here on the Senate Floor. Surely the United States Senate is big enough to take self-criticism and self-appraisal. Surely we should be able to take the same kind of character attacks that we dish out to outsiders.

I think that it is high time for the United States Senate and its members to do some soul searching -- for us to weigh our consciences -- on the manner in which we are performing our duty to the people of America -- on the manner in which we are using or abusing our individual powers and privileges.

I think that it is high time that we remembered that we have sworn to uphold and defend the Constitution. I think that it is high time that we remembered; that the Constitution, as amended, speaks not only of the freedom of speech but also of trial by jury instead of trial by accusation.

Whether it be a criminal prosecution in court or a character prosecution in the Senate, there is little practical distinction when the life of a person has been ruined.
Those of us who shout the loudest about Americanism in making character assassinations are all too frequently those who, by our own words and acts, ignore some of the basic principles of Americanism –

The right to criticize;
The right to hold unpopular beliefs;
The right to protest;
The right of independent thought.

The exercise of these rights should not cost one single American citizen his reputation or his right to a livelihood nor should he be in danger of losing his reputation or livelihood merely because he happens to know someone who holds unpopular beliefs. Who of us doesn't? Otherwise none of us could call our souls our own. Otherwise thought control would have set in.

The American people are sick and tired of being afraid to speak their minds lest they be politically smeared as "Communists" or "Fascists" by their opponents. Freedom of speech is not what it used to be in America. It has been so abused by some that it is not exercised by others.
The American people are sick and tired of seeing innocent people smeared and guilty people whitewashed. But there have been enough proved cases to cause nationwide distrust and strong suspicion that there may be something to the unproved, sensational accusations.
As a Republican, I say to my colleagues on this side of the aisle that the Republican Party faces a challenge today that is not unlike the challenge that it faced back in Lincoln's day. The Republican Party so successfully met that challenge that it emerged from the Civil War as the champion of a united nation -- in addition to being a Party that unrelentingly fought loose spending and loose programs.

Today our country is being psychologically divided by the confusion and the suspicions that are bred in the United States Senate to spread like cancerous tentacles of "know nothing, suspect everything" attitudes. Today we have a Democratic Administration that has developed a mania for loose spending and loose programs. History is repeating itself -- and the Republican Party again has the opportunity to emerge as the champion of unity and prudence.

The record of the present Democratic Administration has provided us with sufficient campaign issues without the necessity of resorting to political smears. America is rapidly losing its position as leader of the world simply because the Democratic Administration has pitifully failed to provide effective leadership.

The Democratic Administration has completely confused the American people by its daily contradictory grave warnings and optimistic assurances -- that show the people that our Democratic Administration has no idea of where it is going.

The Democratic Administration has greatly lost the confidence of the American people by its complacency to the threat of communism here at home and the leak of vital secrets to Russia through key officials of the Democratic Administration. There are enough proved cases to make this point without diluting our criticism with unproved charges.

Surely these are sufficient reasons to make it clear to the American people that it is time for a change and that a Republican victory is necessary to the security of this country. Surely it is clear that this nation will continue to suffer as long as it is governed by the present ineffective Democratic Administration.

Yet to displace it with a Republican regime embracing a philosophy that lacks political integrity or intellectual honesty would prove equally disastrous to this nation. The nation sorely needs a Republican victory. But I don't want to see the Republican Party ride to political victory on the Four Horsemen of Calumny -- Fear, Ignorance, Bigotry and Smear.

I doubt if the Republican Party could -- simply because I don't believe the American people will uphold any political party that puts political exploitation above national interest. Surely we Republicans aren't that desperate for victory.
I don't want to see the Republican Party win that way. While it might be a fleeting victory for the Republican Party, it would be a more lasting defeat for the American people. Surely it would ultimately be suicide for the Republican Party and the two-party system that has protected our American liberties from the dictatorship of a one party system.

As members of the Minority Party, we do not have the primary authority to formulate the policy of our Government. But we do have the responsibility of rendering constructive criticism, of clarifying issues, of allaying fears by acting as responsible citizens.

As a woman, I wonder how the mothers, wives, sisters and daughters feel about the way in which members of their families have been politically mangled in Senate debate -- and I use the word 'debate' advisedly.

As a United States Senator, I am not proud of the way in which the Senate has been made a publicity platform for irresponsible sensationalism. I am not proud of the reckless abandon in which unproved charges have been hurled from this side of the aisle. I am not proud of the obviously staged, undignified countercharges that have been attempted in retaliation from the other side of the aisle.

I don't like the way the Senate has been made a rendezvous for vilification, for selfish political gain at the sacrifice of individual reputations and national unity. I am not proud of the way we smear outsiders from the Floor of the Senate and hide behind the cloak of congressional immunity and still place ourselves beyond criticism on the Floor of the Senate.

As an American, I am shocked at the way Republicans and Democrats alike are playing directly into the Communist design of "confuse, divide and conquer." As an American, I don't want a Democratic Administration "white wash" or "cover up" any more than I want a Republican smear or witch hunt.

As an American, I condemn a Republican "Fascist" just as much as I condemn a Democrat "Communist." I condemn a Democrat "fascist" just as much as I condemn a Republican "Communist." They are equally dangerous to you and me and to our country.

As an American, I want to see our nation recapture the strength and unity it once had when we fought the enemy instead of ourselves.

It is with these thoughts I have drafted what I call a "Declaration of Conscience." I am gratified that Senator Tobey, Senator Aiken, Senator Morse, Senator Ives, Senator Thye and Senator Hendrickson, have concurred in that declaration and have authorized me to announce their concurrence.

Bottom line…

One of the reasons the progressive communist democrats want to erase history is so that American citizens do not see the mistakes of the past and take corrective action.

It is almost inconceivable that Senator Susan Collins, the current Republican Senator from Maine, also a woman, would have the guts to stand up to the Democrats she often sides with.

Until we start electing principled Senators to the United States Senate, we are so screwed.

THE FAILURE OF UVALDE IS THE FAILURE OF AMERICA

What’s on my mind today…

 

TODAYS-RANT

THE FAILURE OF UVALDE IS THE FAILURE OF AMERICA

We are learning that sufficient resources were on-scene at the Robb Elementary School shooting in Uvalde, Texas, to halt and neutralize the shooter in time to save children. Yet, the on-scene commander chose to wait – for what is unclear.

Initiative and courage are dying. A lack of leadership plagues our country. Populated by many jumped-up middle managers who are so afraid of the adverse consequences of being held accountable for their actions, either legally or in the corrupt mainstream media, their natural proclivity is to wait for guidance from someone more senior. And, if there is no one more senior suffering paralysis by analysis.

Part of this is the vilification of law enforcement by communist front groups like Black Lives Matter. And the selection and promotion of critical leadership by progressives who use a check-the-box approach to identity politics where color and gender trump competence. 

The failure to learn from the history of the Columbine High School Shooting was apparent.

FOURTEEN REPUBLICAN SENATORS WANT TO IMPOSE GUN RESTRICTIONS  ON LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS THAT ARE INEFFECTIVE AGAINST CRIMINALS, CRAZIES, AND TERRORISTS WHO DO NOT RESPECT NOR OBEY ANY LAW.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), Joni Ernst (R-IA), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and Todd Young (R-IN), John Cornyn (R-TX), Thom Tillis (R-NC), Richard Burr (R-NC), Susan Collins (R-ME), Mitt Romney (R-UT), Bill Cassidy (R-LA), Rob Portman (R-OH), Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Sen.

OUR ECONOMY IS NO BUENO AS ILLEGAL ALIENS POUR OVER THE BORDER

We are seeing the implementation of the Cloward–Piven strategy, designed by socialist sociologists and political activists Richard Cloward and his wife, Frances Fox Piven. The plan is to overload the healthcare, educational, and welfare systems to precipitate a fiscal crisis that would lead to a more progressive government and replace the welfare system with “a guaranteed annual income” and other benefits administered by an authoritarian socialist system.

Precisely what we see implemented by the progressive communist democrats and their refusal to protect our Constitutional sovereignty and defend our nation’s borders.

THE ONLY THING BEING PUMPED IN BIDEN’S AMERICA IS BULLSHIT, AND THE LIFEBLOOD OF AMERICA

It is unconscionable that the Biden Administration is asking Saudi Arabia and Venezuela to pump more oil while restricting the energy development and production that made America energy independent eighteen months ago. It is beyond unconscionable; it is traitorous, especially when facing a multi-front war and depleting our petroleum reserves. This should be unacceptable as we see the Biden Administration caving to the faux unscientific climate change demands of the progressive communist democrats and their globalist alliance that appears to be little more than international socialism.

Bottom line...

The longer the progressive communist democrats are in power, the more destruction and pain we will experience.

We are so screwed.

ARE WE AT WAR WITH THE RUSSIANS IN UKRAINE OR THE DEMOCRATS AT HOME?

Uk-afI’m sorry. I am a constitutional conservative and an America First type of guy. Therefore, I have no desire to virtue signal my support for the Ukraine-Russia war other than to note it was not an unprovoked attack but appears to be a continuation of the U.S. State Department/CIA policy. 

The Bush/Cheney effort marked the initial attempt to alter Ukraine/Russia relations with the CIA-led 2004 “Orange Revolution,” which led to the removal of the Yushchenko and his corrupt prime minister, Yulia Tymoshenko.

In 2010, Yanukovych made a political comeback, won the presidential election, and reestablished closer ties with Moscow.

In 2013-2014, the Obama/Biden/Clinton State Department/CIA forces tried again, with a campaign nicknamed the “revolution of the Maidan,” named for the central square in Kyiv occupied by anti-government protesters.

A notorious leaked phone call between Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt documented Washington’s role in directing the right-wing campaign that ultimately drove Yanukovych into exile. Nuland boasted that the United States had expended $5 billion in Ukraine to promote its interests.

Ukraine: The Mess that Victoria Nuland Made

Victoria Nuland engineered Ukraine’s “regime change” in early 2014 without weighing the likely chaos and consequences.

As the Ukrainian army squares off against ultra-right and neo-Nazi militias in the west and violence against ethnic Russians continues in the east, the obvious folly of the Obama administration’s Ukraine policy has come into focus even for many who tried to ignore the facts, or what you might call “the mess that Victoria Nuland made.”

Assistant Secretary of State for European Affairs “Toria” Nuland was the “mastermind” behind the Feb. 22, 2014 “regime change” in Ukraine, plotting the overthrow of the democratically elected government of President Viktor Yanukovych while convincing the ever-gullible U.S. mainstream media that the coup wasn’t really a coup but a victory for “democracy.”

To sell this latest neocon-driven “regime change” to the American people, the ugliness of the coup-makers had to be systematically airbrushed, particularly the key role of neo-Nazis and other ultra-nationalists from the Right Sektor. For the U.S.-organized propaganda campaign to work, the coup-makers had to wear white hats, not brown shirts. <Source>

For those who do not recognize Victoria Nuland’s name, she was a significant part of the proceedings during the impeachment of Donald Trump when he asked Ukraine President Zelensky to investigate Biden-related corruption in Ukraine.

Following what I believe is the Democrat-staged loss of an estimated $80 billion in U.S. infrastructure and weapons during the Biden Administration’s surrender of Afghanistan, the U.S. military-industrial complex, including cadres of well-paid mercenary contractors, needed another government teat -- a long-term source of continuing revenue.

So what I am now seeing is a continuation of that effort as the war in Ukraine…

NATO chief says Ukraine war could last ‘years’ and require long-term support.

The head of NATO cautioned on Sunday that the war in Ukraine could last years and urged Western nations to continue to provide military and humanitarian assistance in its fight against Russia.

Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said providing state-of-the-art weaponry to Ukrainian troops is critical in their effort to free the eastern Donbas region from Russian control, Bild am Sonntag reported. “We must prepare for the fact that it could take years. We must not let up in supporting Ukraine,” Stoltenberg said.

“Even if the costs are high, not only for military support, also because of rising energy and food prices,” he said.

Russia launched its invasion in Ukraine on Feb. 24 and set out to quickly take the capital Kyiv, but determined Ukrainian forces deterred the onslaught.Since then, the battlefield has shifted. <Source>

Should we care?

The Ukraine war appears to be a long-haul war of attrition where Russian manpower and Russia-manufactured weaponry will eventually succeed unless countered by weaponry and Western support. The gravest consequence of the war of attrition is that Ukraine will run out of fighters before Russia and will need NATO or American forces (one and the same) to fight Russia in the near future.

From January through June, the U.S. has provided more financial assistance and military aid ($40 - $60 billion) to Ukraine -- more than all other countries combined. Other than continuing U.S. employment and profits, I am hard-pressed to see a benefit to the American taxpayer.

Bottom line...

Are we prepared to spend $100 billion annually, more than the budget of the Department of Homeland Security, to defend the American Homeland? Protecting Ukraine’s borders and not ours -- which is the U.S. gateway to an invading hoard of illegal aliens, including criminals, crazies, and terrorists.

And, that’s not the worst part -- we will have to prop up the Ukraine government, including their salaries, pensions, and other benefits.

Not to mention that China controls 7% of Ukraine’s farmland and would be the direct beneficiaries of our generosity.

If Trump were the President, at least we might be getting oil, wheat, and other commodities in return.

Something stinks -- and I believe it is the Democrat Party which has consistently weakened the leadership of the U.S. military by purging highly-experienced leadership down to the non-com level.

Let us not forget that a corrupt Ukraine served as the piggy bank for many high-ranking U.S. politicians, former Vice President and now President Joe Biden included and that records and witnesses to the criminal activities of U.S. politicians and agencies can quickly disappear in the “fog of war.”

Where is the diplomacy? What can the combatants do to end the conflict? I say attack the oligarchs and make the continuing war unprofitable for both sides.

We are so screwed when there is no transparent foreign policy and our Democrat-run government is corrupt and compromised by the evildoers.

WHY AMERICAN POLITICIANS ARE FAILING

What is wrong with our political parties…

I find it impossible to believe that either of the major parties cares more about our beloved nation than they do about winning political power.

Americans do not have a choice of candidates; we have a choice between candidates—pre-selected by the parties based on the political popularity of the candidates, not necessarily their abilities or patriotism; and in the case of the progressive communist democrats, additionally by race and gender.

I find it offensive that the progressive communist democrats would even consider offering up an aging, feeble, incoherent Joe Biden, or the GOP would offer a highly polarizing Donald Trump – even though Trump has the best track record of any modern-day president. My fundamental objection to Trump is that he has abundant energy but is lazy and disorganized. He lacks the attention to detail necessary to do a deep dive to radically eliminate the embedded communist Clintonistas and Obamacons in the bureaucracy. It was this bureaucratic opposition that resisted his candidacy, retarded his ongoing Administration, and gave us Joe Biden.

FLAG-GBUSA

While politicians and their preferred ideologies and pet projects come and go, few recognize and analyze the cumulative effects on our economy, culture, and national defense. Few things in America are based on the "long game," with individuals and organizations concentrating on maximizing short-term gains.

Because America, as a whole, is productive and relatively affluent, some use this disparity between countries and individuals to stick their collective fingers into America's pie with little or no pushback from the politicians -- especially politicians on the take as unofficial foreign lobbyists.

It is now time to get tough.

Demand background checks for politicians and their staff. Improve asset disclosures. Eliminate insider trading protections. Demand that lobbyists, consultants, lawyers, accountants, and foreign-owned companies register under the FARA (Foreign Agents Registration Act). Punish violators with restrictions on doing business with the government and fines and other penalties. Restore accountability to leaders for the actions of their subordinates.

Back words with actions, being prepared and willing to punch back twice as hard as an attacker. Power, respect, and fear should be the goal -- not love and kind words in the media.

Ask what's next?

We are in uncharted waters, an unthinkable political reality-- with an Administration more concerned with managing perceptions through media messaging than taking action to resolve emergent issues.

Consider reality! Will the United States come to the aid of Taiwan, or are we just content to "sell" them weapons that American taxpayers ultimately subsidized and paid for? Walking away if there is a threat made against the American homeland?

While change is inevitable and driven by the rapid advance of technology and globalization, we are seeing the type of change produced by bad actors. Bad actors engaging in open information warfare and propaganda are driving and enlarging divisions between Americans based on identity classes. Chaos is being weaponized, and tolerance for shock troops on the left side of the political spectrum is becoming increasingly apparent.

Unfortunately, there remains a group of individuals, mostly government workers, who are isolated from the worst economic consequences by guaranteed employment, ever-increasing salaries, benefits, and cushy pensions. Conditions not found in the private sector. Unless these individuals are forced to deal with the reality facing most Americans, there will be little or no change.

Unfortunately, much of the chaos and angst is created by the progressive communist democrats and media propagandists -- and enforced by unions that have become little more than communist front groups. Not the rank-and-file, but the thuggish leadership.

The progressive communist democrats have been stress-testing America for decades, with their violations of the law and social norms becoming more egregious as time goes on.

It is almost inconceivable that our enemies are better equipped, better trained, and better prepared, and their leadership is more patriotic and prepared to execute aggressive actions -- but this is where we are heading under a weak American administration..

President Biden is incapable of executing his duties as the President of the United States and the Commander-in-Chief of the military. The idea that Jake Sullivan, Susan Rice, Samantha Power, and other members of Obama's cadre of communists are running our military is shocking. Yet, given the actions of Lloyd Austin, Mark Milley, and our recent surrender in Afghanistan, that's what appears to be happening. How else can you explain what is happening in Iran, Ukraine, and North Korea?

Bottom line...

There can be no American Dream without those who believe in American exceptionalism and who are willing to defend America from its enemies, both foreign and domestic.

Our President's success should be our success. His failure, our failure.

Prepare to fight for suitable candidates and choose wisely.

We are so screwed.

CAN TECHNOLOGY SOLVE THE WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY PROBLEM?

The problem is when the progressive communist democrats play identity politics and choose color over competence…

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre is an incompetent liar.

Bottom line…

We are so screwed.

INTERNET SCAM SENT VIA REGULAR MAIL?

Yesterday I received a postcard that is apparently designed to look like an Amazon communication…

Unfortunately, the red flags are flying.

Front

  • Prominent Amazon logo.
  • There is no return address.
  • There is no stamp but a bulk indicia.
  • A non-Amazon email is listed on the card, and the QR code links to a non-Amazon site.

Back

  • Prominent Amazon logo.
  • Plausible “New Product Test Invitation.”
  • No mention of any product purchased.
  • Characterized as a membership “test club.”
  • Free merchandise offer.
  • Commission amount up to $40.
  • You need to register your name and contact information.
  • A non-Amazon email is listed on the card, and the QR code links to a non-Amazon site.

Why this is suspicious…

Amazon, for the most part, is an online operation. As one who allegedly purchased something, Amazon would already have your personal details, including your payment method. Had they decided to make an offer, it would have been as a pop-up screen after a successful log-in to their site or an email with a code to be used after a successful log-in to their site.

Additionally, a check of the domain name associated with the printed address indicates that the site was established by Alibaba Cloud Computing (Beijing) Co., Ltd., and the QR code address indicates the site was established by GoDaddy.com, LLC on 2021-11-25 and expires on 2022-11-24 unless renewed. Both sites have hidden information masked by a privacy service.

What this appears to be…

My best guess is this is an email list-building effort to capture your contact details and any information your browser typically forwards when accessing a website.

Is it a scam? Who really knows? But it is deceptive as hell, which makes it a candidate for the shredder.

Bottom line…

The best advice comes from the Better Business Bureau: “Investigate BEFORE you invest.”

We are so screwed.
