Our southern border remains open to anyone.

The Chinese are supplying the chemicals to make fentanyl to the Mexican cartels who are happy to sell it to Americans too stupid to heed the warnings. I believe somewhere near 3,000 Americans per month die from fentanyl overdose. The president, in his hateful speech last week, did not mention fentanyl, the Chinese, our open borders, inflation or anything else Americans talk about over dinner. What do you expect from a fascist trying to ruin our country and take our freedoms?

$10,000 millions more to Ukraine to support their fight for freedom…

The following are excerpts from an opinion article in the Wall Street Journal 9/6/22 by Lance Morrow, senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center.

The democrats have the “fascist” business wrong. Donald Trump isn’t a fascist, or even a semi-fascist, in President Biden’s term. Mr. Trump is an opportunist. His ideology is coextensive with his temperament.

As for Mr. Trump’s followers, they belong to the Church of American Nostalgia. They are Norman Rockwellians, or Eisenhowerites. They regard themselves, not without reason, as the last sane Americans. You might think of them as American masculinity in exile…

If there are fascists in America these days, they are apt to be found among the tribes of the left. They are Rr. Biden and his people (including the lion’s share of the media), whose opinions have, since January 6, 2021, hardened into absolute faith that any party or political belief system except their own is illegitimate-impermissible, inhuman, monstrous and (a nice touch) a threat to democracy…The state and the democratic party must speak and act as one, suppressing all dissent. America must conform to the orthodoxy-to the Chinese finger traps of diversity-or-else and open borders-and rejoice in mandatory drag shows and all such theater of “gender.” Meantime, their man in the White House invokes emergency powers to forgive student debt and their thinkers wonder whether the Constitution and the separation of powers are all they are cracked up to be.

Mr. Trump and his followers, believe it or not, are essentially anti-fascists: they want the state to stand aside, to impose the least possible interference and allow market forces and entrepreneurial energies to work. Freedom isn’t fascism. Mr Biden and his tribe are essentially enemies of freedom, although most of them have not thought the matter through. Freedom, the essential American value, isn’t on their minds. They desire maximum-that is, total- state or party control of all aspects of American life, including what people say or think.

In their unending drive to screw the American people, US health authorities plan to recommend that people get Covid-19 boosters once a year. This will pay big pharma a lot of cash, some of which will end up in the pockets of those recommending this crap. The vaccines do not work, they have bad side effects for many, some leading to death. There is no other reason for this aside from greed.

As you might know, our western states are in the midst of a summer heat wave, which is not unusual, even in September. In California, “rolling blackouts were averted on Tuesday. This ought to be a warning about how the government force-fed green energy transition is endangering grid reliability…democrats blame climate change for the state’s weeklong warnings to conserve power, but California’s climate hasn’t suddenly changed. Triple-digit temperatures aren’t unprecedented, despite Gov. Gavin Newsom’s claims. What has drastically changed in recent years is California’s electric generation.

Solar and wind power have rapidly expanded thanks to rich government subsidies along with the state’s renewables mandate…Irony of ironies, the state has installed temporary gas-fired generators to run during grid emergencies. In other words, the state that is working so hard to banish fossil fuels has become more dependent on them…but what starts in California, rarely stays in California. Americans everywhere will soon be soaked with higher prices for power that is becoming less reliable…The grid problems that Californians are enduring will grow and spread as supersized green-energy subsidies and mandates spread their harmful incentives throughout the US economy in coming years. The culprit is the left’s climate policies, not climate change.” WSJ opinion 9/8/22

If we truly have a government “of the people, by the people and for the people,” where is OUR voice in this crap? There was no debate, no public forums, no voting. Nothing, nada. They are stealing our money for themselves and their political friends with no regard for this country or her citizens.

Hard for me to believe there are this many idiots in the USA but, according to the Epoch Times, 17 states in our Union have signed on to California’s ban on gas powered vehicles. Of course, they are all states run by liberals, what else would you expect? All of this is so wacky. It is difficult to mentally process such nonsense.

You will notice that all Democrats talk about is Trump. They have instilled so much hate for the man throughout their ranks, it is beyond belief, and he is not even on the ballot. Of course, it is a distraction, what else can they talk about? The border? Inflation? Afghanistan? Energy prices? No, of course not.

Here’s one that will frost your nuggets:
The Safety, Accountability, Fairness and Equity-Today (SAFE-T) Act enacts extensive reform impacting many areas of the Illinois criminal justice system, including pre-arrest diversion, policing, pretrial, sentencing and corrections. Signed into law by Gov. JB Pritzker 1/22/21, the following will take effect January 1, 2023:
Aggravated battery Intimidation
Aggravated DUI Kidnapping
Aggravated fleeing Robbery
Arson 2nd-degree murder
Burglary Threatening a public official
Drug-induced homicide

You already know it is a war zone in Chicago, one must assume it will get much worse next year. This is what Marxism and progressivism bring to our society.




Have a great weekend…. God bless America!

Buy American made products whenever you can, it’s good for you, good for your friends and neighbors and good for our country.

If you are hiring…try to hire a veteran…. they are loyal, disciplined, hardworking…and they deserve our support.

By the way, if you wish to comment on my rants or offer any other insights you may have, you are encouraged to email me.


In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American and nothing but an American. There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag…We have room for but one language here and that is the English language…and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”
