When asked whether the FBI had confidential informants among the Trump supporters on January 6, he declined to answer, dancing around the question like a fool. As Rep. Clay Higgins said, “the answer should be NO.” What does that tell you about the FBI and whose pocket they are in? We all know the answer.
From The Patriot Post:
If it be asked, what is the most sacred duty and the greatest source of our security in a Republic? The answer would be an inviolable respect for the Constitution and Laws…”

There are three things that helped the Senate secure the majority: One, our terrific candidates. Two, our agenda and our accomplishments. And three, the American people rejected the anti-democratic, extremist MAGA Republicans.” Senate majority leader chuck schumer (d-NY)
Fact check: Schumer’s candidates are Socialist Democratic party drones, and their “agenda” was a long list of policy failures.
What actually ensured Democrats would win the Senate and beat back massive losses in the House, turning the “red wave” into a mere red ripple, were two factors Schumer failed to mention:
First would be the massive influence of the leftist media platforms that perennially use their airtime to defend and endorse Democrats. That combined with the fact that Big Tech has refined and perfected the suppression of conservative speech, is a major factor in keeping the political playing field listing hard left. They have done a masterful job of keeping the Democrats’ low-info voters dumbed down. Just imagine what the political landscape would look like if the media talking heads and scribes were actually exercising objective journalism.
The second would be the Democrats’ bulk-mail ballot fraud strategy, which they refined and perfected in 2020 under the auspices of protecting voters from the ChiCom virus. In tandem with Leftist media and social media bias, that strategy ensured that the 2020 election would produce a historic number of votes, paving the way for the election of Joe Biden.
On his third point about “anti-democratic, extremist MAGA Republicans,” Schumer was partially right. Democratic voters certainly did reject many candidates with those tags, which are code for “Donald Trump” candidates.
Joe Biden and the Democratic party ran against Donald Trump, again, because they had NO policy success to run on. Of course, the SCOTUS ruling on abortion helped because Democratic strategists knew they could count on female voters, whom they think are emotionally incontinent dupes.
The centerpiece of Biden’s 2022 midterm campaign platform was Trump, and Republican leaders snickered. How could he not mention a single word about inflation, crime, immigration, or any other voter concerns? Democratic strategists and pollsters knew exactly what “hate and fear Trump” buttons to push to keep their voters on the plantation months ahead of the first bulk-mail ballots being cast. And that is precisely why Biden’s handlers sent him out with the “threat to democracy” message.
Democrats have perfected their bulk-mail ballot strategy, which is why Biden delivered two very high-profile speeches before the election about “protecting democracy” from the MAGA Republican” threat.
That is precisely why, in Biden’s post-election comments, he proclaimed “it was a good day for democracy.”
Thus, Trump’s announcement of his 2024 candidacy Tuesday night was met with a universal wave of Democrat “high-fives” because they can now spend the next two years improving on their 2020/2022 model to ensure Trump’s defeat, retake the House and strengthen their lead in the Senate. This, despite the fact they have substantially more Senate seats at risk in 2024. Of the 33 Senate seats on the ballot, 21 will be Democrats and two Independents who caucus with Democrats.
Like most conservatives, I agree with virtually everything Trump said Tuesday, both his references to his administration’s long list of achievements, amazing for a one-term president, and the challenges he noted our nation is now facing.
However, like it or not, Trump is the lightning rod for all the deep-seated Democrat hatred and fear, and they have demonstrated they know how to use those sentiments to their advantage, especially in combination with their bulk-mail ballot fraud strategy.
To be clear, Trump was absolutely correct in his claim that there was massive fraud in the 2020 election.”

With the transition of power in the House comes a rude awakening for guilty Democrats. An editorial in the Friday Wall Street Journal written by two Democrats are telling us that if Biden promises not to run in 2024, that we the people should forget about investigating any past transgressions. Why would anyone do that? The severity of the crimes against the people of this country are without equal. Most on the left have been unaware of what has occurred because the mainstream media does not practice journalism, they are activists for the Democratic party, therefore news which should not have been kept from the public has been suppressed for two years now. It is a little ironic that Donald Trump, who was never charged or convicted of a crime, was impeached-two times by these bastards.
Also, on Friday the White House pushed back on the upcoming investigations into joe biden’s alleged (it is not alleged, that is legal mumbo jumbo. They have the proof of malfeasance) involvement in his son Hunter’s foreign business dealings, claiming that the investigations are a politically motivated rehashing of “long debunked conspiracy theories.” This is an outright lie to the American people. How dare they.
This came as James Comer (R-Ky), incoming chairman of the Oversight Committee, said at a press conference that, contrary to the president’s claims, whistleblower evidence shows that he was directly involved in his son Hunter’s international business dealings. Ian Sams, spokesman for White House Counsel’s Office, said the following:
Instead of working with President Biden to address important issues important to the American people, like lower costs, congressional Republicans’ top priority is to go after President Biden with politically motivated attacks chock full of long-debunked conspiracy theories, wasting time and resources on political revenge.”
I could go on but the gall of these leftists to say the evidence has been long debunked is just another lie. It is nonsense. Joe Biden, his brother Jim, his son Hunter and likely many more, should all be in jail and HE should be impeached for treason. Not only for his money-making business deals but for all the other bullshit we are dealing with. Comer also said that the alleged crimes include conspiracy to defraud the United States, wire fraud, violation of the Foreign Agents Registration Act, violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, tax evasion, money laundering and violations of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act.
Read that again and remember what the Democrats were doing instead of helping Trump Make America Great Again, they were telling lies about Russian collusion, pee parties, impeach, impeach. All bullshit and proven to be so. The Bidens will not be so lucky.

TEDDY ROOSEVELT ON IMMIGRANTS IN AMERICA…1907
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.”
