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.
Look at the state of our country now after a little over two years since Joe Biden was inaugurated. We have an annual inflation rate around 6%; we have to import some of our energy needs when under Trump we were an exporter of energy; some of our foreign friends are abandoning us to become “palsy” with both China and Russia; our open border policy has let in 5 million illegals and a steady flow of tons of deadly drugs; the crime situation in many of our Democrat run cities is out of control; and it seems the climate change fanatics have taken over our government. As a sane person, would you let those “stupid” things happen without at least trying to correct the situation? How many more “stupid” policies will we encounter in the future under a Democrat, Biden Administration?
The Democrats seem to be carrying this “stupidity” thing to a level that has not been seen before. Their “stupid” policies seem to focus on three things, gender, race, and climate change. It's almost like a religion to them. By focusing on those three terms they think they can appeal to a goodly number of voters in order to win elections to maintain and increase political power.
Let's examine some of the “stupid” policies put forth by Biden and the Democrats. It seems they won't be satisfied until they can control everything in our lives, whether we, as a people, favor them or not. It seems “deja vu” all over again.
Biden and the Democrats want to do away with most fossil fuels by the year 2035 and replace them with unreliable “Green Energy”. How “stupid” is that? Does he and the Democrats want us to become a third world country? By using climate change as their main talking point, the Democrats want everyone to drive electric cars and trucks regardless whether the populace wants them or not, they want to do away with gas stoves, air conditioning units and anything else that uses fossil fuels for power generation. Can't you visualize most of our enemies laughing at our “stupidity”?
Fossil fuels usage has been the most economic change for the good for the countries around the world over the last century, and up till today. Without fossil fuels, the poor of the world would be worse off and would become even more poor than they are now, and the better off western countries will become less prosperous as a result of this “stupid” climate change mindset.
Another “stupid” policy by the Biden Administration is the letting of hordes of illegal migrants and illegal drugs into our country with their “stupid” open border policy. Over 5 million people from over 150 different countries have crossed our wide open border along with tons of deadly drugs, thus causing havoc along the border cities, but also around the country as the “stupid” government has resettled the migrants in states and cities with perks that even our own citizens don't receive.
Let's hope that we can survive the “stupid” policies of Biden and the Democrats until the next election in 2024, when we'll have the opportunity to throw the “stupid” rascals out and replace them with common sense people and policies that will “Make America be Great Again”.

The word "pretend" is defined as: to speak or act as to make it appear that something is the case when in fact it is not. Isn't that what is happening in America today? We are encouraged to "pretend" to believe things that make no sense at all. Logic is turned on its head, and if you disagree with this nonsense, you could be vilified as a racist, a bigot, a Nazi, a homophobe, a fascist climate denier, or worse. For instance, the Biden Administration has claimed that inflation is no problem and is only transitory and that we should "pretend" that everything is under control, and we shouldn't believe "our lying eyes". We are also told to "pretend" that the southern border is secure when, in fact, in the past two years, over 5 million illegal migrants have invaded our country, and an enormous amount of deadly drugs have also been smuggled in by the Mexican cartels. And, according to the Biden Administration, we must "pretend" that getting rid of fossil fuels will alleviate our so-called global warming problem by transitioning to the use of unreliable "green energy" in its place. To further compound this ridiculous "pretend" mentality, we are told to embrace the idea that men can become women and that women can become men, and that biological males should be able to compete in women's sports.
It seems that common sense has been replaced by partisan politics pushing a "progressive" agenda as we "pretend" that what is wrong is right and against all reality. An example of this mindset is what happened at a lecture by an invited Appeals Court judge at Stanford University law school when a group of radical students shouted him down from making his speech because of some misinformation put forth that the judge was anti-LGBTQ and a bigot. To compound this display of arrogance and rudeness on the part of the students, a Stanford administrator backed the shameful students and berated the judge. Isn't it ironic
that these bellicose students who claimed that they were exerting their free speech rights were actually preventing free speech by the invited judge? And this from students at a prominent law school who will one day become lawyers and judges, sworn to uphold the free speech clause of the Bill of Rights. The left will want us to "pretend" that what the students did was perfectly approved dissent. To elaborate what I said about the economy, the White House wants us to "pretend" that what is obvious to the naked eye is not what you actually see or hear. With an inflation rate over 6% and a debt over $31 trillion, the White House proclaims that they are the champions of sound fiscal economic policies. Those policies have had a negative effect on some banks by "going belly up", with the White House coming to the rescue of their depositors who have more than the guaranteed $250,000 FDIC deposit insurance. We must "pretend" that the Administration acted in good faith and conscience, even though the Silicon Valley Bank was a leading contributor to the Democrat Party. When "Red State" Senator Jim Langford asked Secretary of the Treasury Janet Yellen, whether she would do the the same thing for a bank in his State of Oklahoma, she said probably not.
In addition to the negative things I mentioned above about the Biden Administration, we are told to "pretend" that our withdrawal from Afghanistan was a success, even though we left thousands of U.S. citizens and Afghans, who worked with us over the years, behind in now a Taliban-run country, along with billions of dollars worth of military equipment abandoned to now be used by the Taliban.
Yes, the word "pretend"seems to be the word the Biden Administration wants us to use in explaining its failed policies, even though the facts don't back them up. The term "elections' have consequences" has come to bite us in the butt big time. Let's not "pretend" anymore, and hope that our country can survive until the election of 2024 when we can throw the "pretenders" out of office.

As if we don't have enough nuts running around causing mayhem and violence, we now now have a group of transgender advocates, a.k.a. "TransMafia", doing the same thing as ANTIFA and BLM, two Marxist anarchist groups. How did we get to this place of insanity whereby half of 1% of the population (the approx. amount of transgender people) could cause us to become beholden to their nonsense?
God forbid you mention the scientific fact that there are only two sexes, all hell will break loose and the expletives will ring out such as, transphobic, homophobic, bigot, fascist, racist, and that overused term “white supremacist”, take your pick, you will be guilty of one or all of those epithets.
When you're talking about the LGBTQ and the Transgender communities, you're talking about approximately 4% of the total American population. I guess you could blame the news media and the vast majority of the Democrat Party who are totally enraptured with identity politics. The “Balkanization” of the American populace is just what the media and the Democrats thrive upon. If they can get certain groups of people fighting against each other, they can then come in as “the knight in shining armor” and play peacemaker in hopes of getting the votes of the warring people, which they instigated in the first place.
Remember back a few yeas ago, during the Obama/Biden Administration when race relations in this country took a turn for the worse? Obama, our first Black President, was supposed to be a unifying agent between all the disparate groups in the country, especially white/black relations, but his rhetoric and actions caused much turmoil around the country. The turmoil has continued ever since , and actually has gotten worse since then. Today, even the political parties (Democrats and Republicans) are more polarized than ever. Very little bi-partisan legislation is taking place as the Democrats have commenced a vendetta against Republicans, especially Donald Trump. It seems that no matter what Trump is for, the Democrats are against. “Trump Derangement Syndrome” is alive and well and has reached a new low with the Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, bringing felony charges against Trump with probably the most flimsy facts in the history of the district attorney's office of Manhattan.
Once the radical leftists latch onto a supposed human rights violation, they organize with the help of that anti-American, Democrat donor, George Soros, who will finance, people like Bragg, through third parties, with almost unlimited infusions of campaign funds.
You name the self-proclaimed aggrieved minority and George Soros will not be far behind with a bountiful amount of “blood money” to help in their quest to eradicate our democratic republic.
This small group of very vocal, organized, anti-science zealots, the “TransMafia”, will copy the actions of the aforementioned ANTIFA and BLM lunatics by using extortion, shake downs, and virtue shaming, to get funding for their destructive activities. Just recently, Riley Gaines, a female collegiate swimmer who lost a major race to a male transgender, Lia Thomas, was attacked and shouted down as she gave a speech at San Francisco State U., championing women's rights to compete with other women and not biological males who claim to be women. So far, no arrests have been made, but Riley Gaines says she is going to sue the school for letting this attack happen. This tactic by the “TransMafia” is right out of the playbooks of Saul Alinsky, Al Sharpton, and Jesse Jackson, all noted shakedown artists.
We must not let this lunacy continue by being shamed into doing what is against Mother Nature. Peacefully confront these radicals, let them speak their nonsense, but don't give into them, take the high road, otherwise the newly named “TransMafia” will drag us down into becoming a 3rd world nation, much to their delight.

Whether you love or hate Donald Trump, do you think Manhattan's 'Comrade' D.A., Alvin Bragg's over zealous pursuit of accusing Trump of dubious felonies is over the top and a travesty of justice as legal scholars, Alan Derschowitz and Jonathan Turley proclaim? Never in our history has a former president been charged with a crime and brought to trial with such weak (trumped up charges, no pun intended) facts. Instead of calling it a prosecution, it should be called a “persecution”.
Are the Democrats so fanatic about maintaining power in government that they have to use our judicial system as a cudgel over the head of their political opponents, especially former President Donald Trump? The tactics they are using is right out of the playbooks of the former Soviet Union and Communist China and other dictatorships around the world.
These anti-Trump fanatics say the “Nobody is above the law”, but with all their shenanigans it seems that “Nobody should be below the law” either, as in the case of Donald Trump. Even the highly partisan ex-Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, has stated that Trump now has the opportunity to prove his innocence. Has she forgotten one of the bedrocks of our judicial system is that when a person is accused of a crime, he is presumed innocent until a jury or a judge finds him/her guilty?
Ever since Donald Trump came down that escalator at Trump Tower, the Democrats have been on a vendetta against him, and I might add, his family. When he won the election of 2016 over the less than honest and shrill, Hillary Clinton, the venom and scorn of the Democrats has increased exponentially, even after he has left office.
The year 2023, seems to be the culmination of all the hate that has been following Trump these past 7 years, by bringing dubious legal cases against him in order to damage him politically if he gets the Republican nomination, and if he runs against a Democrat in the general election.
For the past couple of years, the Democrats have been trying to pin the label of Republicans as the party who are trying to do away with our democracy. With all the hate spewing out by the Democrats and their lackey's in the media, it seems that it is the Democrats who are the guilty one's who are undermining our democracy, not the Republicans.
The latest aberration by the George Soros backed Manhattan District Attorney, Comrade Alvin Bragg, proves that the Democrats are using our judicial system as a weapon against their political enemies. He delivered a 34 count indictment without pointing out a single crime that Trump had committed. Even “fellow travelers” from the political left and the two ratings starved news channels, CNN and MSNBC, have been having fits over the incompetence of Comrade Alvin Bragg's monstrosity of an indictment. It can be assumed that our Constitution is being shredded and a good portion of the American public couldn't care less as long as their party (the Democrat Party) wins an election and maintains its power. You could say, “Liberty's torch grows dimmer by the hour”.
The Republican's must fight fire with fire (unfortunately) instead of putting their tails between their legs and succumbing to the anti-American actions of the Democrats. Our young people (Generation “Z's, people born after 1997) according to polls, only15% think that our country is something to be proud of. It looks like our ultra liberal education system has done a good job of indoctrinating our young people in their radical leftist philosophy. If we don't right the “Ship of State”, and soon, we might come close to becoming a 3rd world country. We can thank the Biden Administration if that comes to pass.
GOD BLESS AND SAVE AMERICA !

You can adopt that position if you have a pre-conceived narrative that the perpetrator is part of a minority that believes that they are oppressed by others. The mainstream media has alluded to this answer when describing the Nashville school shooter. Since the shooter (a/k/a murderer) considered herself a “transgender”, she must have been goaded into doing that horrendous act of killing innocent children and adults.
All commonsense goes out the window when an incident of depravity is committed by a person considered to be a minority (in this case a transgender). Since some of the general public thinks that people who have “gender dysphoria” are driven to act in a different manner than others who do not think they are a different sex, they must've been pushed to do this extreme act of violence by a cruelly religious and patriarchal world that put their lives in danger, and, as a result, forced them into doing a act of violent action.
Over the last few years, we have seen an inordinate amount of coverage of the people who are part of the “transgender world”. You'd think that our society is being inundated with an over abundant of people with “gender dysphoria”, when only 1/10 of one percent of people fall into this category. It seems that most people who are considered “radical liberals” are the one's who are pushing this ideology onto the general public.
During recent times, we have seen an uptick in minor children being the subject of “gender affirming”medical procedures, sometimes without parental consent. There have been reports that some schools are advising minors, who question their male/female persona, to carry out their thoughts without their parents knowing about their inclinations. As a result, many states are passing laws preventing doctors from prescribing gender altering drugs and performing gender altering surgeries on minors. In Florida, doctors could lose their medical licenses if they order puberty blocking hormone therapy, and surgeries for minors diagnosed with gender dysphoria.
For someone who questions these procedures, that person will be subject to verbal and written attacks and personal vilification by those champions of using those body altering procedures. Many members of the “gay community” have organized to oppose the implementation of these laws that are directed at depriving minors of these body altering procedures.
States do have the authority to regulate the various activities pertaining to minors. The state can regulate when a minor can get a license to drive a car, when a minor can legally marry, when a minor can buy a gun, when a minor can smoke tobacco and drink alcohol, and other activities. So when a “body altering” procedure is contemplated on a minor, the state can step in to regulate it until that person is considered to be an adult, and able to make a personal decision that has lifelong consequences.
