THIS IS A BLOG THAT TRIES TO APPEAL TO THE AVERAGE CONSERVATIVE CITIZEN AND HAS NO AGENDA OTHER THAN TELLING THE TRUTH AS WE SEE IT.
“If you invite them, they'll come”. That seems to what is happening in the United States today. An alarming number of illegal migrants, from over 150 countries, have been apprehended at our border (thousands avoided apprehension) during the past year, with the expectation that over 1 million will have illegally entered our country this past year alone. Some of the illegal migrants that have been apprehended had t-shirts with the phrase, “Thank You Joe Biden”. What is wrong with this administration to let this happen? Are they really trying to “transform” our country into a third-world “Nirvana” for immigrants?
Up until the time President Donald Trump left office, we pretty much had the illegal migrant problem mitigated with the help of Mexico. But, when Joe Biden was elected he decided to do away with all of Trump's immigration policies that were put in place such as halting building the “border wall”, instituting a “catch and release” procedure, doing away with the “remain in Mexico” policy until a case is adjudicated, and deporting only a minimal number of illegals back to their home country. It seems that the animosity Biden had for Trump ruled the day when Biden took office. If there was a Trump policy in place, Biden was against it, regardless of its merit. Biden, during his campaign, said that he would welcome all who wanted to come to the United States. So, today we have been inundated with hordes of migrants crossing our border, almost at will, as our Border Patrol is being overwhelmed by the numbers crossing illegally, invading our country.
President Biden appointed VP Kamala Harris to be our “Border Czar”, but she seems to be “missing in action,” nowhere to be seen at the fiasco happening along our Mexican border. Is this what a border czar is supposed to do in solving this major problem affecting our country and citizens, ignore the problem? It sure seems that way.
The United States has had a spike in COVID cases, and it is reported that an estimated 25% of illegals entering our border have COVID. Are we crazy in allowing the unrestricted potential spread of infectious cases coming into our country? President Biden wants to “mandate” our citizens to wear masks and to be vaccinated, but he says nothing about the illegals invading our country. Why the double standard? To me, that misguided Biden policy is a dereliction of duty by the President. Imagine if Donald Trump was in charge during this invasion, the news media and the Democrats would be having a “conniption fit” and would be clamoring for another impeachment of the president.
How much longer can we let this immigration disaster fester before we have a revolt by the law-abiding citizens who say enough is enough? These mostly unskilled, under educated migrants must be taken care of by the federal and state governments, with the cost being born by the U.S. taxpayer. All these illegals will have to be educated, provided health care and housing, all funded by taxpayer money. How is this fair to American citizens?
As our headline infers, when you encourage people to enter our country illegally, they will come looking for their “Nirvana”. It must stop or we will not be a sovereign country anymore, just a way station for the people of the world to get the freebies that our country offers, including those who are entering our country to do us harm.
My advice to the tone deaf Biden Administration is to return to the Trump border policies, otherwise we will become a 3rd world country with only Democrats in charge. It seems that's what the Democrats want, total control, and the hell with the rest of the country.

This proverb, coined by English writer, John Heywood, in 1546, uncannily refers to today's Democrat Party. I'm sure most Democrats realize that they have bought a “pig in a poke” in their supposedly “elected” president, Joe Biden, but they don't want to admit it.
It is quite obvious, that in the Democrats' desire to get rid of Donald Trump, they brought all their political might (the news media, Hollywood, academia, Silicon Valley and social media etc.) to push Joe Biden over the finish line to have him become president. The way it looks now, the Democrats might just rue the day they chose a cognitively challenged candidate to be the one to take down Trump from being re-elected. It's only been 10 months since Biden took office, but it has been one disaster after another that has befallen his administration, with no end in sight.
First off, the election of Biden itself was tainted with dubious election practices around the country months and weeks before the election of 2020, especially in the “battleground states”, with charges of fraud permeating throughout the various states. Any rational, unaffiliated human being who observed the election of 2020, had to come to the conclusion that there was “something rotten in Denmark”. How could a candidate, with such obvious shortcomings, garner over 80 million votes by campaigning mostly from his basement bunker, while his opponent was campaigning, all over the country, to crowds that sometimes reached 20,000 in attendance at those rallies? It has been reported that many voters were turned off by Trump's style, personality, and Tweets, but could that really be the reason how Biden supposedly got 7 million more votes? Me thinks I smell a rat !
Since the Democrats got their wish by preventing Trump having a second term, they are now saddled with a leader who is taking them down the “Road to Perdition”, as they seem to be blinded to the facts by their loony liberal ideology.
The off year election in 2022, when both the majority of the Senate and House are in play, will be a test case as to whether the electorate wants to go down the road of socialism rather than what the Founding Fathers gave us, the institution of capitalism? Already the talking heads of some influential Democrats see the writing on the wall as to the massive defeat they expect by losing both the Senate and the House in 2022. This is one of the reasons why the Senate and House leadership are pushing their massive spending plans while they still are in the majority. Once they lose the majority in Congress, their push for European-style socialism will be stymied by the Republicans, as well it should.
The blindfolded Democrats realize that Joe Biden has screwed up by excessively using his “executive order” pen to get rid of many of the Trump policies that were working just fine. Those stupid acts of revenge on the part of Biden, has caused inflation to arise in most areas of life , especially in energy (gas prices) and food stuffs. They also have downplayed the disaster of the Afghan pullout by leaving many U.S. citizens and Afghan aides behind under Taliban control. The Democrats also have been “circling the wagons” to sugarcoat the disaster at our southern border, which, for all intents and purposes, is wide open for illegal migrants to migrate into our country illegally (it is estimated that over a million illegals will be admitted into our country just this year alone).
In addition to those disasters listed above, the Democrats are blinded to how Joe Biden carries out his duties as president, whereby it seems that he is being manipulated, like a puppet, by his close handlers in the White House. It is quite obvious, to a rational observer, that Biden is incapable of leading the nation. It wouldn't surprise me if the “movers and shakers” of the Democrat Party, convinces Biden to step down, using health reasons as an excuse, or they might use the 25th Amendment to have him leave the White House (a long shot at best).
So, in conclusion, “There are None so Blind as Those Who Will Not See” should be placed upon the heads of those who still support Biden even in the face of his woeful job performance. The one caveat is that if Biden goes, what do we have to took forward to, President Kamala Harris? That's a “Hobson's Choice” if there ever was one.

That paraphrase of an H.L. Menchen quote, can surely be applied to the recall election of California Governor Gavin Newsom. As the State of California is going into the dumpster due to the misguided effects of its present governor, the voters of California have rejected the recall of Governor Gavin Newsom.
The once most dynamic state of the union, has now been in the throes of a massive decline due to the policies put forth by Newsom and the Democrats. During the past couple of decades when the Democrats took over total control of the state, California has been transformed into a progressive nightmare with its policy of welcoming immigration from Central America and Asia, and its policy of “Sanctuary Cities”, with those immigrants generally voting the Democrat ticket thereby preserving the control by the Democrats.
The policies put forth by Newsom and the Democrats have caused the State of California to lead the nation in highest gas prices; the most illegal aliens per capita of any other state; the highest tax rates on individuals and companies; the number of homeless and drug addicts has increased exponentially during Newsom's term as governor; the highest real estate prices and rental rates making it almost impossible for middle to low income to find reasonable housing; besides having the most lenient criminal prosecution laws; and a prevalence of destructive forest fires due to forest mismanagement. All these negative happenings have come about as Gavin Newsom has been the governor, and yet the voters voted to keep him in office. It seems that the voters voted against their own best interests and now will have to live with their stupidity till his term ends next year.
To emphasize the bad policies of Newsom and the Democrats, the exodus of many taxpaying individuals and companies has taken place, thereby reducing the inflow of tax money by those well-to-do and middle class citizens. The state seems to be spiraling toward a citizenry of the very poor and the very rich. So much for Socialism leveling the playing field. These misguided policies also have included rolling blackouts, prices of most commodities to exorbitant levels, a shortage of water resources due to restrictive environmental edicts that makes no common sense. One has to wonder, why do taxpayers continue to vote for politicians that make their lives miserable and unsustainable? Is the party designation, in this case Democrat, the overwhelming incentive to vote against their best interests?
In addition, the persona of Gov. Newsom is one of “do as I say and not as I do”. During the pandemic, he has flaunted his own decrees when dealing with this scourge. He declared that no one meet in groups, but then goes ahead in dining with a group of lobbyists at a very expensive restaurant called the “French Laundry”, with no masks on the guests, but the servers having to wear them; he closed down the public schools for personal learning, but then sent his own children to private schools for in-person learning, while the others had to use virtual learning which really was equivalent to to a second-class education; he also has championed a railway from Los Angeles to San Francisco which has stalled and many consider a major boondoggle.
As California slowly sinks into the sewer, the voters have no one to blame but themselves for keeping this incompetent governor in Sacramento to further hasten the decline of that once great state.

Since the 1990's, and through the Obama Administration, and now in the Biden Administration, we've had a movement in the United States that wants to “transform” our country into something that our Founding Fathers never had in mind when they authored the U.S. Constitution. It seems these radical reformers want us to become the “United States of Europe” because, they claim, that our American capitalist system is “repressive”, “unfair to the masses”, “racist”, and “exploits the poor people”. They never seem to mention any other country who has tried the alternative, Marxism/Socialism, to let us know how successful those other countries turned out. Maybe it's because they can't list any countries that have succeeded under Marxism/Socialism?
With the election of Joe Biden, the impetus to “transform” our country has taken a turn for the worse. I use the term “worse”, as the economic system these radicals are championing, Socialism, has been tried over and over again and the results were all the same – FAILURE. Some examples of the evils of Socialism can be found in the old U.S.S.R, China, Cuba and recently the once prosperous country of Venezuela, all who have embraced Marxism/Socialism, and all are totalitarian countries.
Surprisingly, Socialism (a/k/a Marxism) has found adherents in our country (mainly in the 27 to 40 age group – the Millennial's) which can be attributed to the influence of our teachers and professors in our schools and colleges, whose leftist mindsets predominate throughout academia. One of the late radical Saul Alinsky's rules, in his book titled “Rules for Radicals”, is that to institute change in a society you must get students “with heads full of mush”, to believe that our present system, founded by our Founding Fathers, must be “transformed”. Within the recent past, two radical ideas have been introduced into our educational system, namely, “The 1619 Project” and “Critical Race Theory”. Both of these ideas have drawn fire because of the historical misinformation contained in their ideas, and which they have been quietly introduced in the curriculum's of our schools and colleges. Just recently, historians and parents have challenged the academic institutions to stop this form of indoctrination in their classrooms, especially in our public schools and colleges because they are mainly taxpayer funded. Also, the private schools and colleges have also drawn criticism for their attempts at indoctrination of their students.
On the political level, the Democrat Party has had a sizable number of members who favor the “transforming” of our country. It seems this radical group within the Democrat Party, namely, Bernie Sanders and the Squad (Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, Ayanna Pressley, and newcomer Cori Bush), have had a great deal of influence on the policies enunciated by Joe Biden and the Congressional leaders, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. Proposals emanating from the Congress include many items that could be considered Socialist oriented. Since the pandemic, which has wreaked havoc upon the world, we have spent and have proposed to spend over $6 trillion. If passed by the Democrats, in control of the government, this excessive spending will come back to haunt our country in the future. Could bankruptcy be in our country's future?
Other items on the radicals' agenda are, getting rid of the “Electoral College”, packing the Supreme Court, instituting a ban on fossil fuel energy to be replaced by a “Green New Deal”, using insufficient renewable energy to power our economy in the form of wind, solar, and other forms of unreliable sources of energy.
This “transformation”, if adopted would be the death knell of our country as we know it. It would be unthinkable if we let these radicals succeed in their destruction of our great country. Elections have consequences, as the election of Joe Biden has shown us. We must start our opposition by getting rid of the cancer of radical liberalism by voting out those who want to “transform” our country, in the off-year election of 2022, otherwise we might become another Cuba or Venezuela in our own hemisphere. May God help save the United States.

Have you noticed that the Democrat left has pivoted away from praising a non-praising event like the disastrous Afghan withdrawal, and have now jumped onto the destruction that Hurricane Ida has caused, touting that their bogeyman “Climate Change” is the major threat facing us? In their biased eyes if it's too cold in winter, it's climate change; if it's too hot in summer, it's climate change; if it's a hurricane, it's climate change; and if we have forest fires, it's climate change. To them it's a one-size fits all – everything negative in the world, is caused by climate change.
Let's take the latest hysteria emanating from the Democrat left – Hurricane Ida was caused by the Republicans because they generally are against the liberals cry of eminent disaster due to climate change. Do these leftist Democrats (which includes most of the party with only few exceptions) really think that Hurricane Ida was caused by man-made climate change? Let's look at the number of hurricanes from the year 1851 to the recent present.
Fact # 1 - between 1851 to 1860 – we had 19 hurricanes, 6 were major hurricanes (category 3 and 4).
Fact # 2 – between 1991 to 2004 – we had 14 hurricanes, 5 were major hurricanes. (similar figures up till today)
Conclusion: If carbon dioxide causes global warming (a/k/a climate change) because of humans using fossil fuels and riding around in gas-guzzling SUV's, that supposedly caused a change in the climate by the use of those “evil items”, then what was the cause of those hurricanes between 1851 and 1860? Please, don't try to gaslight me and say fossil fuel consumption and SUV's.
But, according to the Democrats, any kind of catastrophe should not go to waste as a political tool to advance their agenda. And so it is with Hurricane Ida. Imagine using the plight of the thousands of victims of Hurricane Ida for the purpose of partisan political gain? Shame on the part of the leftist Democrats for their outrageous behavior, but it is par for the course.
Does any right thinking person (no pun intended) really think we humans can control or change Mother Nature? Will we, by using renewable energy, driving electric vehicles, and becoming vegetarians etc., really have an effect on the climate and Mother Nature? If yes, then I have a bridge in Brooklyn I'd like to sell you.
Joe Biden is nothing more than a presidential puppet whose strings are being pulled by leftist ideologues such as, Bernie Sanders (an avowed socialist), the Squad, and those two phony legislative leaders, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. Are they really looking out for you or are they really just looking to gain political power for themselves and the hell with the rest of us? Everything they seem to do is geared towards political gain and not for the good of the country as a whole. Their socialist oriented proposals, which haven't worked anywhere else in the world, are being shoved down out throats because they have control of the legislative and executive branches of government. They are rushing their agenda and proposals as they fear their hold of the legislative branch will be ended in the off-year election of 2022. That's the reason for expediting the passage of their monstrous leftist spending bills being pushed by the Democrats, Joe Bide, and a handful of RINOS.
With Biden's disastrous pullout of Afghanistan and the resulting backlash from the citizenry, Democrats are using Hurricane Ida and the threat of climate change as a diversionary tactic to take the public's mind off the Afghan mess. Let's hope that Americans don't fall for the leftist Democrats' “snake oil”, and in 2022 use their vote to throw the rascals out and bring some sanity back into our great country.

After 7 plus months in office, the Biden Administration is proving what Donald Trump and the Republicans said would happen, during the run up to the election, if Biden was elected. From the deteriorating conditions in Afghanistan, to the crisis at our Southern border, to the up tick in inflation, and the misinformation given out by the feckless politicians surrounding Biden, it seems that to our enemies, Biden is the gift that keeps on giving.
During the campaign, Biden continually proclaimed that he was going to be a bi-partisan president who was going to bring back sanity in our country. What happened to his rhetoric once he was sworn in? Well, he has done just the opposite. No give and take, only one partisan proposal after another, without any meaningful input by the Republicans being considered.
Biden and the Democrats have proposed to spend money we don't have to try to entice voters to vote for them in the future. Over $6 trillion of mostly partisan “pork” and a radical liberal progressive “wish list”, are being pushed by Biden and his lackey's in the Congress. You wonder where the common sense and loyalty to country is in Biden's Administration? All indications point to a serious mental decline on the part of Biden, and that his handlers, Susan Rice and Ron Klain, are the one's that are really running the show at the White House. They print the words that Biden reads off the teleprompter, and they restrict most chances for him to interchange with the press (even a fawning press corps) after each one of his talks.
Remember a few years ago, Robert Gates, the former Defense Secretary under the Obama/Biden administration, once stated that “Biden has been wrong on mostly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades”. Recently, when asked if he still felt that way, he said; “I stand by that statement”. From the dire situation that Biden caused by his ill thought out pre-emptive pull out of our military, before all our citizens and Afghan aides were removed to prevent a blood bath by the Taliban once they took over, Biden has once again proved the assessment of Gates' statement was spot on.
In addition, look what is happening at our Southern border as hordes of illegal aliens have been poring across our border, while Biden and his team have turned a blind eye as to the havoc this out-of-control situation has caused along the border towns and cities across the country as the illegals are being sent to, without local input or permission. He doesn't seem to see the ramifications of his laissez-faire policy that has caused what his ill-advised policy is doing to our country. All he had to do to keep order was to keep Trump's policy intact. Buy no, hatred of Trump trumped common sense.
One has to wonder how much chaos will the American put up with with a mentally deficient president running the show? Will they try to get rid of him knowing that elevating an even worse inept politician, Vice-President Harris, to the presidency might even be worse than Biden. It is a “Hopsons Choice” . Yes, to our enemies, Biden is a gift that keeps on giving much to our chagrin, that's why the off-year election of 2022 is so important to put in a roadblock in trying to control the insane policies of Biden and his administration.
