News Headlines

The idiot Marxists who are running our government, have decided to televise a round of new hearings later this month. You and I are paying for this charade. There is no doubt in my mind this is to sway people opinions prior to the November mid-term elections. Personally, I do not believe Trump took any document he should not have. He is not an idiot, and I am sure he would have been advised prior to taking anything questionable. He knew these morons would come after him. Anything to keep him out of the political scene or stop him completely from running for office in the future. They are horrified of this man.

Although the Biden administration insists our southern border is secure, we all know it is NOT secure. Illegal migrants are pouring over the border 24 hours a day. How they can blatantly lie to the American people daily is extremely annoying. I commend Gov. Greg Abbott for shipping the illegals to sanctuary cities, let them deal with it. He should be loading thousands on trains and shipping them to the cities who have the “open arms” policies-which they are against-in their own communities.

Ukraine fighters have reclaimed some 3,000 square miles of territory formerly occupied by the Russians. None of this would be possible with out America and her allies who contribute to the cause of freedom.

The idiots in Washington have spent $10 trillion (or $10,000 billions which equals $10 million millions, if you can wrap your arms around such an enormous number, not quite sure I do) of our dollars in the past 20 months. They of course say that such an infusion of cash into the system is not inflationary. Anyone with a brain knows that is a lie. Additionally, none of that money will benefit you or me or any other hard-working American. We have got to get a handle on the behemoth which is our government. It is too large a bureaucracy for oversight and ALL politicians are robbing us blind.





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.”
