Bidengate…..and, classified information

Lots of interest in whether Biden or Trump did something illegal WHEN HANDLING CLASSIFIED DOCUMENTS….and, which was worst.

1…The Democrats ignore that ONLY A PRESIDENT HAS THE UNIVERSAL AUTHORITY TO DECLASSIFY DOCUMENTS.

A Vice President, like Biden was, does NOT.

Nor does a Senator, like Biden was.

2…ONLY A PRESIDENT, like Trump was, HAS THE RIGHT TO REMOVE DOCUMENTS….AND, ONLY BECAUSE PRESIDENTS HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO DECLASSIFY THOSE DOCUMENTS.

A Vice President, like Biden was, can NOT remove classified documents from official storage.

A Senator, like Biden was, can NOT remove classified documents from official storage — i.e., the SCIF.

HENCE…..PRESIDENT TRUMP HAD THE RIGHT TO REMOVE DOCUMENTS.

BIDEN DID NOT HAVE THE RIGHT EITHER AS A VICE PRESIDENT NOR AS A SENATOR!

End of story.

United we stand………Divided we fall……

The Republicans in Congress never understood this. The Democrats do.

While the Republicans dither about who will be speaker, the Dems are laughing up their sleeves. How can the Republicans lead when they can’t even agree on a speaker?

Republicans haven’t been united since Ronnie with his famous “Speak no ill of other Republicans” united a tired America.

Democrats, on the other hand, meekly acquiesce to any atrocity that Pelosi or Schumer presented to them. More money for the IRS? Not a problem. Less support for the police and military? Not a problem. Crime on the rise? Not a problem. Entrust the nuclear button to a man who can’t remember what he said 5 minutes ago — a man who routinely lies about even his own personal history? Not a problem for Democrats.

This madness has to be stopped! Republicans must unite for a common purpose — that of protecting and defending the Constitution and the American people from the Democrats’ progressive agenda. Republicans must revitalize the economy….restore American’s borders…and, return to the Super Power that defends Democracy around the world.

United we stand. Divided we Fall. Let’s be united.

After all, we are the UNITED States of America.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

OR, will it be?

All product prices are up. Rents are up. Inflation increases and the recession looms.

The housing boom is rapidly slowing.

Illegal aliens are still flooding our country meaning more welfare benefits for them and less for Americans……who, also, pay the bill for these illegal aliens.

Biden is vigorously implementing policies to:

Abort more babies….

Destroy our southern border.

Reduce support for the military, police, and emergency services.

Return to masking and governmental control of all businesses.

Increase the national debt by signing a monumental budget bill which has few benefits for Americans but does increase the burden on future generations.

Allow Russia to bombard Ukraine all while sending more money, more weapons AND, now, our military personnel.

Divide Americans by calling all who oppose his policies derogatory names

Issue Executive orders whenever he wants, including to thwart Supreme Court rulings.

Failing to protect Conservatives threatened by his, and other Democrats’, rhetoric, notably no protection for Supreme Court Justices

So, Happy New Year? I don’t think so. The prognosis is grim so long as Biden and the Democrats control the instruments of government and are willing to say anything, do anything, or try anything to foster Progressive policies and destroy the very basic components of America.

Good luck to us all.

The broken rule of law…

Americans, it is said, enjoy more freedom than anywhere else in the world because we are supposed to be a country of laws. Every man or woman is to be treated equally under our laws. However, that is no longer true. The proof lies in the last few years of absolute tyranny by Democrats who conspired with governmental agencies to abrogate laws to derail political opponents and to foster a Progressive agenda.

The FBI willingly consorted with a political party (the Dems) to defeat a Conservative President, Trump, because they hate the man. The CIA colluded with the FBI, Democrats, and especially the Biden family, in this crime. The media lied and obscured facts detrimental to the Democrats……..all to win an election and keep in power!

And, now, thanks to the IRS and the demented, partisan, Jan 6 committee, NONE of us can expect privacy for our tax returns which privacy is guaranteed BY LAW.

It is the most egregious crime by any political party or administration or governmental agency because:

BY LAW, tax records are sealed from all except auditors of the IRS, unless a Court determines those records are intrinsic to a case.

BY LAW, we must answer personal, financial questions or face severe penalties, even prison, if our most private, personal, financial information is not fully detailed on our tax returns.

BY LAW, these auditors are required to keep ALL records confidential.

So, how did the Jan 6 committee get the private tax returns for President Trump?

Unfortunately, an obsessed Congressional committee convinced an equally obsessed administration that a former President’s tax records should be given to them. That administration leaned on the IRS who caved and coughed the returns up. And, that same committee conspired to release those records to the public because……….well………because the records were Trump’s ……….and they despise him and desperately want to convict him of something…..anything…..

That committee disregarded the sanctity of tax returns thus breaking the law they are sworn to uphold.

Many will say “ho hum. It’s worth it “to ‘get’ Trump for something.” But, if a former President’s confidential tax filings are not sacrosanct, why imagine that ours are?

Plus, having been in business, I can confidently say that a business’ tax returns are so voluminous and complicated that most CEOs rely upon their tax advisers and preparers to make sure the tax returns are accurate. With the multitudinous business entities that fly under Trump’s name, it would have been almost impossible for him to scrutinize each and every return. No, I’m sure he trusted his lawyers and tax firms to do their job correctly and honestly.

Secondly, the tax code itself is a horrendously complicated business. Does anyone truly understand all the “if this, then that. If not that, then this” questions? If it weren’t such a complicated affair, we all would do our own returns and save money. But, because it is so complicated, we ask “experts” to do the job. And, if those experts fail to do something — maybe because even they did not understand — it does NOT make the person who signs the form guilty of anything.

It was bound to happen when a partisan administration took control of every facet of American life. But, now that it has happened, expect other Democrats and Lie-berals to continue demanding what should be private information because…………well……..because they and their interests are more important than our privacy and much more important than any old tax law.

It’s a new day in America all right. A new day where the FBI spies on Americans. Where the CIA gives credence to false documents to derail a political opponent’s candidacy. Where governmental agencies are willing to break laws, lie to Congress, and invade our private lives……all BECAUSE THEY CAN!

BEWARE. If they come for former Presidents, can any of us be far behind?

Bumbling Biden

Although everyone can see that President Biden is not quite “all there”, he is also “not here”. His failing, and failed, mental abilities are evident to anyone who sees him or hears him.

Making a statement like that demands proof. I offer the following to anyone who will listen with an open mind.

1…The Afghanistan withdrawal which gives Iran the upper hand in the region was roundly criticized by almost the entire world.

2..His failure to quell the rising, violent attacks on Conservatives — even the Supreme Court Justices — by his fellow Democrats has led to an increase in violence against Conservatives. His turning a blind eye to that violence, and other crimes against stores has increased the number of thefts. His passing on states releasing violent felons means that more Americans will suffer violence. Witness the man who attacked another man with a baseball bat and now is out on bail of a mere $7500!

3…By not controlling the border, he has allowed transporting Fentanyl, and other drugs, into our country and trafficking of men, women and children to rise at an alarming rate.

4…His inability to understand basic economics, like inflation’s cost to Americans, means that the supply chains have faltered and basic commodities are too expensive for many Americans. Families are going without food, clothing and other essentials simply due to rising costs of inflation.

5…His obvious disabilities have encouraged the Russians to war against Ukraine, much as Obama’s weakness allowed the Russians to seize Crimea without any reaction from the United States. You cannot allow tyrants to gain even an inch because they will take a mile……or, many miles………..as the Russians proved.

6…He allowed Americans to be sequestered, masked, threatened, and their right to pursue happiness, be trampled and all because of a perceived pandemic. Flu comes to the world every yearand, according to statistics, the Chinese flu killed no more people than most flu seasons. He allowed the ransacking of our military because he demanded complete adherence to vaccination rules.

7…The controls he allowed over the American public and scientists meant that any dissenting voice about the flu was smothered. He allowed the media to run with lies and the social media to suppress any voices he disagreed with. Musk’s release of Twitter emails has proven that over and over.

8…To destroy political opponents, he lied, cheated and stole the right of every American to know the truth and vote based on that truth. Biden and his minions completely and covertly controlled the “news” to their own advantage. This exemplifies a level of malice unseen before in our political elections!

9…His weakness allowed the Chinese government to run rampant through our technology. We have always heard that the Chinese are, somehow, superior to us intellectually. For some Chinese compared to some Americans, that might be true., But, the Chinese government’s ambitious efforts to steal our technology really proves only that they are very good thieves.

10…Lastly, he has encouraged others to attack the legal system when he doesn’t like a court’s rulings. Supreme Court rulings have been disregarded. Indeed, some Democrats have openly stated that they will NOT abide by a Court’s decisions. This is NOT following the oath of office to “protect the Constitution”.

All of these actions are detrimental to every American, but because the media is almost completely Lie-beral, they are also ready to conspire to keep Democrats in power. Most media have not even covered Musk’s release of Twitter emails. They suppressed the Hunter Biden story to save President Biden and are still doing so. They continue to pretend that Biden is “all there” when anyone with eyes in their head and ears to hear knows that the President is in serious mental decline….and…..NEITHER HERE NOR THERE! It’s sad that Democrats and Biden’s family and Biden himself will do anything to stay in power..

In fact, their only objective is that Bumbling Biden stay in power because he is their gravy train to financial gain and political prestige.

President Reagan always felt optimism about America’s future. With Biden in the White House, I feel it is the opposite. Indeed, it’s a dark day in America when someone like Bumbling Biden has the keys to power and his finger on the nuclear button.

Sign of the Times

It’s a scary sign of the times that America is no longer the land of opportunity and individual freedom. If you support Conservative thought or candidates, you must not speak out. Because, if you do, the Leftists will attack you in every way — anything to quell your opposition to their coercive policies.

Examples of how Leftists have destroyed our freedoms are rampant. Health care clinics that promote Life are attacked and the media doesn’t cover the attacks. Conservative candidates are called horrific names, like Nazis, and their homes and families are doxed. Supreme Court Justices and their families are threatened and the media says “ho hum”.

Violence is on the rise everywhere because criminals are no longer held responsible for their crimes. Candidates, like Wisconsin’s Democrat for the Senate, openly advocate for letting criminals out of prison! Violence in the cities, especially in minority districts, is on the rise because Democrats fault the police, and NOT the criminals! How crazy is that?

Revisionist history has replaced historical facts. Statues of famous Americans are destroyed, replaced, or moved to an obscure location because they were people of their times, with the values of those times, and don’t fit today’s PC theories.

Oh, yes, the rights of the majority have succumbed to the ever-growing list of the rights of the minority. It’s pretty obvious that minorities determine public policy for the Democrats, and, if the Constitution gets “in the way”, they are ready to rewrite it.

In fact, if even one person feels offended , Americans are told they must conform to whatever makes that one person happy. That encourages other individuals to BE OFFENDED and further destroys the concept of a majority rule. By allowing a single person who feels offended to set our standards, we have thrown common sense out the window. That one person now can tell everyone else what they can say, do, promote…..or, even think!

It’s too bad that individuals might be offended. But, one person should not regulate an entire society’s standards. That is a dictatorship. The fact that what offends the majority is no longer important shows just how far our country has deteriorated, thanks to the Democrat politicians who would rather get a vote than follow the Constitution.

One simple example of how freedom of speech is suppressed in America is that we no longer put up signs for our preferred candidate. We used to do that in the town where we raised our family. But, we have moved to a city and we don’t put signs up any more for fear that our property would be vandalized. The simple act of putting up signs used to be an accepted form of free speech. Now, we not only don’t put up signs, we refrain from discussing politics with anyone, even friends and family, because the Left’s response is so aggressive and downright frightening.

Yes. It’s a sign of the times — a very bad sign –that Americans no longer are free to speak, act, or live their lives, as they see fit.

The Tower of “Babble”……now playing at the White House………

President Biden has proven to be incoherent in many of his remarks. The babble that comes out of his mouth is disconcerting at the minimum and frightening because he is the President..

Unsurprising then that he chooses a press secretary who also is incoherent and can’t seem to answer a simple question even when she has notes in front of her. https://www.facebook.com/TheScoop.Politics/videos/3127286684159297/?extid=NS-UNK-UNK-UNK-IOS_GK0T-GK1C&ref=sharing

The Truth, and nothing but the Truth

Chris Wallace now claims he resigned from FOX news because “they” no longer were truthful about the 2020 election: “But when people start to question the truth — Who won the 2020 election? Was Jan. 6 an insurrection? — I found that unsustainable.”

Isn’t it interesting that only he knows the truth about the election? Those of us who question that election know nothing, if he is to be believed, and we have become, once again, the Deplorables of Hillary Clinton fame.

Mr. Wallace, in his arrogance, seems to have forgotten that Truth is a slippery beast at best. Except in math where you can be certain that 1 + 1 adds up to 2, there are few other areas that are absolutes. What one person considers true might not be what another considers the truth. It all depends upon the assumptions you make. I think Mr. Wallace makes foolish assumptions and then proliferates his faulty conclusions and denigrates anyone who disagrees with him. Why do I think that? Because Mr. Wallace has been one of the most liberal, and vindictive, hosts on FOX, especially when the subject was President Trump. It is thus no surprise that he feels threatened by anyone who has a different view of that election.

Unfortunately, Wallace was part of the media who pandered to Mr. Biden and excoriated Mr. Trump at every opportunity. Many of us do question the 2020 election, especially now that the facts being revealed show how corrupt President Biden, and his son Hunter, were….and, are. The media is finally admitting that Hunter Biden’s laptop might just prove that President Biden is corrupt. But, they mocked anyone who claimed that earlier, including the man who actually had the evidence, the laptop. And, the admission that the Steele dossier was not only a fake, but perpetuated by our own clandestine FBI, should cause everyone to question the slanderous stance taken by the media. The news about election officials who allowed voting practices that were outlawed by the states themselves creates even more doubt about that election. These lies and subterfuge created by the media about President Trump, make it difficult to believe Mr. Wallace’s conclusion about the 2020 election.

DEspite all the evidence forthcoming that proves Mr. Trump was right, Mr. Wallace remains convinced only he knows the truth. I would challenge him on that!

Besides the evidence contradicting Mr. Wallace, I remember one of my college professors telling us to beware of anyone claiming to know the Absolute Truth. The problem is not with Truth itself. The problem is that politicians and the media no longer tell the Truth. They obfuscate, repeat half truths, and misconceptions until Truth is buried beneath mountains of lies. And then the lies become the straw man they can attack without anyone knowing what the truth really is.

It’s scary. Common sense is needed to wade through the deceptions that Mr. Wallace and his ilk have continually spouted. Lies are like a weedy root that burrows beneath the earth and sends up thorns and thistles. We need to root them out as soon as we see them before their terrible consequences, like the 2020 election, can create even more havoc in our country and the world.

Remember —- A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on. Winston Churchill

I’m sick of it!

That’s not me, that’s our inept President Biden speaking.

And, what is he sick of? He’s sick of being blamed for inflation, the incompetent withdrawal from Afghanistan, the divisions in America, high gas prices, the incomprehensible non-response to Russia invading Ukraine…..yada yada. In short, he is sick of being blamed for all the trials and tribulations he has created in only the first year of being President.

Just imagine what he can do with 4 years!

Although he is known for making gaffes, this one is a real prize winner. Whom does he think should be blamed for these problems? He is the one who refused to rescue Americans and Afghans who helped America. He is the one who used racism as a campaign rallying cry….and, continues to use it to rationalize almost every problem he has created in America and the world. He is the one who shut down the Keystone pipeline which would be shipping oil within the year and maintaining the American energy surplus which President Trump began. Biden is the one who shrinks from confronting Putin about invading Ukraine. Apparently, Biden wants to follow in the footprints of Obama, his buddy, who was afraid to contest Putin’s invasion of Crimea.

Well, the chickens are definitely coming home to roost. That might be okay if it only affected those who shared the blame with Biden for the troubles in today’s world. But, everyone worldwide will suffer because Biden, Harris, AND the Democrats, are too afraid to stand up for anything. They wait to see what the political winds blow in and then, decide what to do.

And, if the winds switch direction, Biden and his coterie of “flexible” pals are more than willing to change their thinking, if it can be called thinking.

So, I’m sick of it, too. I’m sick of Biden, Harris, and all those Democrats who have led us into this misery we are now enduring. I’m sick of seeing Russia indiscriminately killing civilians — men, women and babies — just to take over a democratic Ukraine. I’m sick of high energy prices and supply chain problems. I’m sick of politicians who talk a good line, but ignore the realities of Life under Biden.

I’m sick, sick, sick, of our President and Democrats. My only hope is that others are sick enough of the lies, grandstanding, and ineptitude of Biden and the Democrats to vote them out of office.

Otherwise, we, and our wonderful America, might never get well again.

The tail end of a greedy tale….

Once upon a time, there was a large village called Happyland, so named because most of the people were content.  Oh,  there were problems, but for the most part, the majority felt that their little island was a safe and secure homeland. Because this village boasted almost every race, color and creed, everyone who came could find somewhere to be accepted.  So, it was, indeed, a happy land. 

Then, one day, in a village across the water but not too far away, loud sounds were heard and people died.  Evil stalked the Earth again.  Happyland was unhappy to hear of trouble anywhere; but, after all, they were an island and no harm could reach them.

Well, sad to say, one day Harm did come to Happyland.  There were big explosions and many people died.  Everyone in Happyland immediately demanded that the evil people who had brought this disaster to them be found and punished.  The people demanded that every means possible be used to find the perpetrators.  After all, Security was at stake!

So, the officials  began their search.  They looked high in the sky, checking all the airplanes and the people on the airplanes.  They looked low, checking all the people and baggage on trains and buses.  They looked in between, checking all the telephones and computers.  There were no more attacks and the people rested better at night.

But then, it was time to elect new officials or to re-elect the old officials.  The wanna-be officials decided that it was time to rewrite history.  Instead of agreeing, as they had in the past, that the elected officials had done everything that the population had demanded – and that everyone had agreed with at that time —  the wanna-be group insulted, denigrated, denied, and attacked every word, action, and intent of those in power.  If you had been listening to the new diatribe, you would have assumed that Happyland had been attacked again.

Not so.

In fact, Happyland prospered despite the attack.  Yes, there were people who lost treasures and lives in other tragedies;  but, that is Life, isn’t it?  But, more and more people built or bought homes.  Almost everyone had enough money for food, clothing and everyday expenses.  Children smiled and shouted once again.  In short, you would have thought that Happyland would have been happy.  And, they were. 

Well, they were until the microphones started shouting that Happyland was NOT happy.  Day after day and night after night, the litany rang out.  The elected officials were vilified at every twist and turn.  Eventually, people began to wonder if they truly were happy.

Those who defended Happyland began to lose their place of honor because they had used force to protect Happyland.  Even though people could sleep better at night because of that force, the wanna-be politicians derided the very group that had saved Happyland.  Every move and decision was questioned and debated with the benefit of hindsight.  The wanna-be group made a concerted effort to convince others that “they” would have done better.  Unfortunately for them, the history books show that they, too,  made decisions based on the facts available at the time.  But, they refused to listen and insisted that the “OTHERS” had been wrong!

The constant barrage of criticism eventually changed Happyland into Unhappyland.  Rather than working with others to protect the happy island, the naysayers used every opportunity they were given, and bought other opportunities, with the sole intent of tearing down the good that had been done for Happyland.  People became tense and worried again.  Uncertainty about the future created problems for those at home and those at work.  It was a sad time for many.  Instead of promoting a confident atmosphere, the naysayers destroyed the island’s image of a united Happyland.  The naysayers created an atmosphere where terror and evil could sneak in.

And, the Lie-berals smiled. It was another election season!
