Chuck on the right side
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.
The “They” I'm referring to are the Democrats with Sleepy Joe Biden at the helm. Before the Chinese pandemic hit the United States and the world, President Donald Trump had a record of achievement, envied around the globe. Most of the criticisms of Trump were for personal reasons, his manner and style, not for the policies he instigated and passed. Everything that was supposed to be up was up, and everything that was supposed to be down was down. He was on his way to reelection, when the Chinese pandemic hit us and the world like a sledgehammer.
Trump's enemies, which not only included Democrats, but the main stream media, academia, Hollywood, BLM, most unions, especially the teacher's union, and some disaffected RINO Republicans, were mobilized to defeat Trump in the 2020 election.
No matter what Trump said or did, he was mocked and criticized unmercifully, even if his policies were sound and beneficial to the country. His enemies rarely criticized his policies, but they criticized him personally as the next coming of the devil incarnate. They did everything they could to discredit him in the eyes of the public. They initiated false charges of collusion with the Russians (it took over two years to dispel that lie), and they initiated an impeachment trial over his interchange with the Ukrainian President, plus phony charges of racism that were made up “out of whole cloth”.
Trump mainly withstood the attacks on him and his character, but then came the Chinese COVID-19 virus. The plan concocted by his enemies to blame him for his mishandling of the pandemic seemed to have worked for the Democrats, even though they had a very weak candidate in Sleepy Joe Biden. Even though he campaigned from the bowels of his Delaware basement bunker and made very few public appearances, Biden miraculously 'won' the election, even with questions as to the validity of some vote totals in key battleground states. The all-out assault on Trump, in tandem with questionable election activities by his enemies in certain battleground states before, during, and after election night, benefited Biden, giving him a shocking, come from behind victory over Trump.
Now with Joe Biden ensconced in the White House, the public is seeing what the consequences of his election has wrought, as it affects our country both economically and foreign policy-wise. What has a Joe Biden presidency wrought so far? The price of gas has risen over $1.00 per gallon at the pump since his inauguration (and going up); inflation has hit the grocery shelves; our borders are being flooded with illegal immigration, the Middle East is in turmoil and violence is occurring with no leadership offered by Biden or his administration; his domestic economic policies seem to be going haywire as he has adopted Bernie Sanders and the Squad's policies, in addition to the “Green New Deal”. All in all, it looks like Joe Biden has bitten off more than he could chew. He has proposed, along with Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, giant spending programs worth over many trillions of dollars as a price tag. Remember, about 60 years ago, then Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev said at the United Nations, that he would bury the United States, not by force, but by the United States burying itself from within. Well, it seems that his words were prophetic. Unless we can rein in the destructive policies of the Democrats and Biden by having the Republicans regain the legislative branches, the House and Senate, in the off-year elections in 2022, otherwise, we might just prove Khrushchev right in his assessment.
Yes, the Democrats and Biden are blinded to the facts by their liberal ideology and as a result, they are leading our country to emulating the policies of the many of the third world countries, including in our hemisphere, Cuba and Venezuela. We must throw out the rascals (a/k/a the Marxist/Socialists) in 2022, or we'll be in one helluva mess in the coming years.

Seven year old Jaslyn Adams died on April 17th in Chicago. She was killed in a hale of bullets at a McDonalds drive thru, which also seriously wounded her father, her death held little significance for the media and race baiters, since her three assailants were believed to be black. Jaslyn, who was also black, had her whole life ahead of her to fulfill her dreams and bring joy to her parents.
By contrast, a black felon with a rap sheet listing 8 jail terms with various minor charges of drugs, theft, and aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon, has been memorialized, just short of beatification, because it was said, that he was turning his life around and his death was attributed to unlawful restrain by one of the cops.
It didn't matter that George Floyd was arrested for trying to make a purchase with a counterfeit bill, or his system contained high levels of fentanyl and methamphetamines while turning his life around. What mattered to the left was that the police were white.
Although there's room for police reform, the solutionists are missing the core of the problem. It isn't systemic racism, but the lack of traditional paternal family values in 70% of African American homes. Fatherless homes aren't unique just to this group, but in others; and not in this exorbitant proportion.
If the needle is to move favorably, black youths must stop listening to the woke elite, who use them to advance their own agendas. They must stop being stupid wise guys, and adhere to law enforcement directives if detained. They also must look for role models other than in entertainers and sports figures, whose motives and judgement are morally in question. They must stop leaning on the victim mentality for their own failures. And they have to put a stop to fatherless families and bare some responsibility for the dark side their attitude creates.

After 4 months of policy decisions by President Biden, the one thing that is quite obvious is the success of the Trump presidency.
We now have a 4.2% increase in consumer prices; almost 180,000 of migrants caught illegally crossing our border; there are 8.1million job openings but employers can't find workers to fill them (overly generous unemployment benefits could be the cause); plus we have a 6.1% unemployment rate. In the works by the Biden Administration is a tax increase as we slowly emerge from a China virus pandemic. Biden claims that he will only raise taxes on those people who make more than $400,000, but, in reality, he will have to tax all middle and lower class citizens in order to pay for the prolific spending Biden the Democrats are planning on imposing on us taxpayers.
In addition to exacerbating our domestic problems, our foreign problems seem to be met by complete ignorance on the part of the Biden Administration. Biden wants to cut a new deal the the terrorist regime of Iran by the reviving the failed past nuclear deal; the Russians have conducted a cyber attack on one of our gas pipelines; the border crisis on the southern border is getting worse not better due to the Biden Administration not having a clue to how to fix it (he should have left the successful Trump policy in effect); after inauguration, Biden through executive orders, canceled most of the Trump policies thereby causing a national crisis especially at the southern border as illegals are continuing coming into our country, almost unhampered. Compared to what Biden has done since he was sworn in as president, our economy and foreign policy is headed for a downturn. If he would've left the successful Trump policies intact, we wouldn't be facing such a predicament in the near future
One thing that seems quite evident, is that Biden is being manipulated by a cabal of left-wing zealots including Bernie Sanders and the Squad (Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley). All are admitted Socialists who seem to be pulling the strings of their puppet Joe Biden. In addition, the people who have been appointed to run his administration are mostly from the academic world (mostly left-wing zealots), and professional bureaucrats with little or no private business experience. This contrasts with the Trump Administration who had mostly all private sector appointees with business experience who administered their area of governance.
The Democrats and their flunky's in the news media, for 4 years criticized all the policies initiated by Trump even when those policies turned out to be a success. If it wasn't for the Chinese COVID pandemic, Trump would've won in a landslide. The biggest mistake Joe Biden has made is to have junked the Trump policies out of vindictiveness and not by using common sense. By embracing the Marxist/Socialist policies of Bernie and the Squad, Biden has wreaked havoc in our country. If we don't change this movement toward socialism, our country will go into the dumpster and China will become the pre-eminant power in the world. This is why Joe Biden has shown why Trump's policies were right.

It's Never Good Enough !
Like a pack of wild dogs, it is very difficult to satiate the beasts. And so it is with the leftist lunatics who are trying to undermine our democratic republic. It seems the Democrat Party tries to appease the anarchist groups, ANTIFA and BLM, but in doing so makes the groups want more, like the wild dogs, you can't satisfy the beasts. It's never good enough. When you reward bad behavior you get more bad behavior. You'd think educated people, especially politicians, would realize that maxim when dealing with both ANTIFA and BLM. They think that by appeasing their “bad behavior” they are acting compassionately, but the result has been just the opposite.
Across the country, those far-left Marxist/Socialists are spreading hate by pitting one group against another, thus causing chaos which they then blame on others. Today, the main thrust of their campaign is to denigrate the law enforcement people, who are trying to keep the peace, by using isolated incidents of police misconduct. Cries of “defund the police”, calling police officers pigs and killers of black people, and that cops practice “systemic racism” are heard on a daily basis without any basis in fact. Isolated instances of police misconduct are blown up out of proportion to their significance in reality. Police, in this day and age, do not systematically go out of their way to harass or kill black people. According to FBI statistics, a policeman is 18 ½ times more likely to be killed by a black person than an unarmed black person is killed by a policeman. We have come a long way since the days of “Jim Crow” which, by the way, was practiced by the Democrats from the Civil War to the middle 1960's. Today, those same Democrats, are trying to pin the label of “Jim Crow” onto the Republicans in an all out effort to con the blacks and minorities to vote for Democrats on election day. They are shameless in their attacks against Republicans. Behind the scenes, that ex-Nazi sympathizer and international con man and big Democrat donor, George Soros, has been bankrolling many of those anarchist groups in order for them to spread their venom around the country. Unfortunately, this dishonest campaign has had some traction within certain groups around the country.
The term “racist” is bandied about willy-nilly by leftist groups as they designate that label to anyone who challenges them. The term is used to shut down debate, as that slur is looked upon by all sectors of the population as being immoral or worse. In fact, it is being used so often that its meaning is losing its impact as being a redundant term of derision.
Some of the rules that are used to appease the thugs are no bail to be assessed for people arrested for crimes, especially those arrested in violent “demonstrations” which included arson, pilfering, and attacking the police, early release from prison for those earlier convicted of crimes the leftists categorize as minor crimes etc. Quite a few district attorney's, backed and bankrolled by George Soros in cities like Los Angeles, Chicago and St. Louis etc., have turned our justice system on its head by instituting lax enforcement of the law. As result, crime has skyrocketed in most all the Democrat-run cities of the country, which has resulted in many of the law enforcement personnel to opt for early retirement or to outright resign their positions. The situation will only get worse unless a change of policy is instituted, but as President Biden continues to lead as a “Progressive”, instead of the moderate he claims to be, the chances do not look promising as he seems to have fallen under the spell of the Marxist/Socialists like Bernie Sanders and the “Squad”.
By bending over backwards to appease the anarchists, it has made orderly governance worse than if they tried to enforce the law. Instead of mitigating the violence permeating in our towns and cities, those attempts at watering down the laws pertaining to crimes and misdemeanors, has actually caused the spike in anarchy and violent protest.
We must stop “feeding the beast” or we'll become a nation emulating the many third-world countries around the world. You can't satisfy the radicals appetite for chaos and mayhem. Law and order should be the rule not the exception. Don't appease, enforce the law.

Recent confrontations between law enforcement and possible violators reported on TV has become controversial, due to the visual interpretation from media and influential liberals gaslighting the public. They spin what you saw that is contrary to theirs, for political expedience. To deter the public from the truth, they have resorted to weaponizing racism as their silver bullet, by shooting down its opposition's First Amendment rights, and anything that is disagreeable against their narratives.
Revoking the 2nd Amendment will not stop the democrats from shooting themselves in the foot with hypocrisy.

The term “Holy Grail”, which has biblical connections to a cup used at the Last Supper, is often used to denote an elusive object or goal that is sought after for its great significance. So it is with the theory of “Global Warming” (a/k/a Climate Change). To listen to the Democrats, you'd think the greatest possible calamity to confront the world is “global warming”. No matter what the science says, the Democrats dire predictions about the “climate apocalypse”, is not coming true as they seem to be oblivious to the reality of the situation. It is not their “Holy Grail”.
The whole radical contingent of “fear mongers”, headed up by President Biden, Climate Czar John Kerry, Sen. Bernie Sanders and the “Squad” (consisting up of Representatives Cortez, Omar, Tlaib, and Pressley), Senator John Markey etc., have all predicted “doom and gloom” if we don't do something about the possible calamity of climate destruction around the world.
The “climate fanatics” have no meaningful response to preventing climate change except to screw up the economies of the United States and the Western countries. They claim that by changing our energy needs from fossil fuels to “green energy”, that will stem the eminent disaster of a climate holocaust. Little do these climate fanatics realize that the climate has been changing for many thousands of years, even before the widespread use of fossil fuels were being used, and there existed no SUV's to despoil the environment.
Most of the people who champion the case of climate change are avowed Marxist/Socialists, who would like to see the capitalistic free enterprise countries fail. The notorious George Soros is a big booster of the climate change fanatics.
This whole new concept of the “Green New Deal” will not be able to change our need for reliable energy sources. Windmills, Solar and other forms of “green energy”, will not be able to supply the energy needs of the world. These green energy sources cannot replace fossil fuels no matter what the green energy advocates proclaim.
Over the past decades or so, the United States has cleaned up most areas of the country that had a pollution problem, even as the use of fossil fuels were being used widely around the country. Why would we want to get rid of the relatively inexpensive and reliable use of fossil fuels for the unreliable green energy sources of energy?
This doesn't mean we should not try to find reliable “clean energy” sources of energy, but realistically, none of these non-fossil fuel energy sources would be able to meet all of our energy needs now or in the near future. This whole concept that “carbon dioxide” as the main culprit of climate change and that it is caused by man, is not founded on sound scientific principles. In fact, carbon dioxide is a very important plant and tree food. As we humans breathe out carbon dioxide, the plants and trees absorb it in and produce oxygen. In fact, the “evil” carbon dioxide is not the most prevalent greenhouse gas, that is “water vapor”. No matter how hard the “greenies” condemn carbon dioxide for climate change it is water vapor that is the main source of a minimal elevation of the earth's temperature. It is up to Mother Nature to control the atmospheric conditions around the world and we, no matter how the “enviro's” try, they can't change Mother Nature.
So, to all those who elevate “global warming” as the be-all and end-all of a global climate catastrophe, stop trying to sell you bogus theory as it does not meet the criteria of impending global destruction. It is not your “Holy Grail” it is your “Shibboleth”. Go sell your “snake oil” elsewhere.
