Deterioration in Business Conditions

Deterioration in business conditions reported by results of The Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond May 2023 Fifth District Survey of Manufacturing Activity, according to executives responding to the survey. The composite manufacturing index fell from -10 in April to -15 in May. Two of its three component indexes-shipments and new orders-declined.

US Raw Steel Production Up from Previous Week

In the week ending May 20, 2023, US raw steel production was 1,728,000 net tons at an ACUR of 76.8 percent, up 0.2 percent from the previous week ending May 13, 2023.

Real Gross Domestic Product (GDP) Increased in the First Quarter

Real gross domestic product (GDP) increased at an annual rate of 1.3 percent in the first quarter, according to the “second” of three estimates for first quarter growth.

Headline News

Last week we lost Jimmy Brown, #32 for the Cleveland Browns. I was fortunate to watch him play at Cleveland Municipal Stadium back in the day. My dad used to take my sisters and I to Hiram College to watch the Browns practicing. It was a thrill to watch that man carry a football. Yes, there have been many greats in the game since his time on the gridiron, but in my opinion, no one comes close to Jim Brown. Rest in peace.

The truth is that the Treasury has more than ample revenue coming in each month to avoid defaulting on the debt, and Mr. Biden doesn’t need to distort the meaning of the 14th Amendment to do it…”

Enough of this nonsense with blackmailing the public so the “Democrat” Marxists can continue their unceasing and wasteful spending. Don’t let them fool you, it is another scam and Republicans should hold their ground. It is imperative that the government begins to restrain its spending.

The NAACP has issued a warning to Black Americans to stay out of racist Florida:

be aware of the open hostility towards African Americans and people of color.”

More Marxist bullcrap. This is race baiting, they disagree with the governors’ stance on CRT in schools, transgenderism in schools, drag shows in schools and his war against “woke” ideologies throughout Florida and our country.

The Marxists are accusing Gov. DeSantis of “pushing white supremacy.” When will we, as a country, be done with all the bullshit about racism and white supremacy? The accusations are patently false, and the country has been and will continue to be, torn apart by it. That the idiot in the Oval Office has the nerve to say “white supremacy” is the biggest enemy we face is just a blatant lie.

I am in complete and total agreement with Governor DeSantis on this, as I am sure every good American is.

A couple of “woke” attacks on normalcy this week:

Ahead of “pride month” (really-pride?), big box store, Target, has partnered with Abprallen, a lgbtq+ fashion company that sells merchandise with images of pentagrams, horned skulls, and other satanic products, and t-shirts that say “satan respects pronouns.” The London-based company was founded by a self-proclaimed “gay, transgender man…”

The LA Dodgers’ front office has decided to honor a group called the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence at the team’s “annual pride night.”

Together we’ll continue to knock down barriers and foster an atmosphere of acceptance for all,” Dodgers executive Erik Braverman said in a statement.

The group describes themselves as “a leading-edge order of queer and trans nuns” and have connection to any real Christian denomination. They are, for the most part, male drag performers specializing in what Rolling Stone magazine calls “campy nun cosplay.” After much blowback, the team rescinded the invitation, then, after more blowback from the leftists, they were re-invited.

On Wednesday we lost Tina Turner of the duo, Ike & Tina Turner. Tina was eighty-three and died peacefully at her home in Switzerland. As a solo performer she rocked it in her concerts. RIP

The freak, Sam Brinton, the cross-dressing luggage thief (busted three times), is being held in a jail in Maryland while awaiting extradition charges that will send him to Virginia for stealing an African fashion designer’s suitcase. The non-binary freak allegedly stole the luggage and wore the clothes over and over and over again at various events. The entire Biden administration is made up of woke freaks. It’s no wonder the country is in such shit shape. Brinton will be jailed with the “general population of the men’s jail next week. They better provide plenty of lube. That freak of nature will need it.

The scumbag traitor, Eric Swalwell, representative from-where else but California, has been let off of any charges regarding his sleeping with a Chinese spy. Do you really believe he didn’t reveal any secrets while she was performing sex acts on him or with him? There is NO accountability for these Marxists. How can that be?

HAVE A GREAT MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND. Take a moment to give thanks to a Veteran and say a prayer for all those who have made the ultimate sacrifice to protect our Liberty and Freedom. God Bless America




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.”
