News Headlines

You can tell it is election time, the Marxists are lying more than usual. Your president has the cojones to tell the American people that Republicans will cut Social Security and Medicare benefits. Has anyone anywhere heard a conservative utter such nonsense. The useless governor of New York tells us the crime in her New York City is a conspiracy of the Republicans, never mind the open drug use, defecation, urination, masturbation, shootings, people being pushed in front of subway trains, car-jackings, robbery, rape, assault. It is ridiculous.

Some years back, Hillary Clinton had Seth Rich murdered. He was a Democrat hack, working for the Clintons, and was supposedly robbed and shot in the back. His wallet was found on him and his Rolex wristwatch. Some robbery. Anyway, the FBI has his laptop and are seeking to withhold the information contained therein for 66 years!

Tuesday evening, I listened to the idiot in the Oval Office disparage conservatives for all the things the Marxist Democrats are doing. They have done this consistently for years. I think many Americans can see through the lies, unfortunately, many suck it in hook, line and sinker.

What could possibly be wrong with “Make America Great Again?” In reality, it is a more than noble cause, but the Marxist Democrats relate MAGA to Donald Trump who WAS making America great again. They knew, and know today, that his policies were good for America, the American people and the world. When you stand up to the elite powers in Washington, the Marxist Democrats and RINOs get their panties all bunched up. They do not want their gravy train to end. I ask you to consider where the country was 2 years ago during the Trump administration and compare that to today; everyone was better off and were he still president, Ukraine would not have happened, China would not be salivating over Taiwan, inflation would not be 8%, fuel would not cost $3.50 per gallon, our border would be secure, our military preparedness would be vastly and continually improved, there would be no wokeness, no gender degeneracy aimed at our children. It is possible that the rush to electric vehicles may have been stifled. Any idiot can see that we need oil, gas and petroleum products for nearly everything we do, wear, eat, transport, protect. Windmills, solar panels and overly expensive, non-renewable lithium batteries are NOT the answer.

Who denies election outcomes? They all do. The swamp is deep.

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.”
