News Headlines

Our southern border remains unsecured. All kinds of unsavory crap is flowing across the border, the illegal travelers subject to the whims of the cartels and coyotes.

The war in Ukraine continues though I do not know to what end. It seems obvious now that Ukraine is no match for the Russian behemoth and while we support their fight for freedom, I don’t know why we keep sending billions of dollars in cash and further billions in material.

The progressive Democrats got what they have been pushing for, spending $1 trillion on bullshit, including some $80 billion to hire 87,000 IRS agents. They are coming for you and I and will make our lives miserable. Are you aware the IRS has spent $750,000 on ammunition? What do they need ammunition for? Because the new agents will be required to “carry a firearm and also be prepared to use deadly force if necessary.” What could possibly go wrong? This administration gets worse by the minute and the harm they are doing to the country and citizens is unfathomable. This brings Biden’s spending spree to $3.5 trillion in a little over a year and a half.

On Monday morning, the FBI raided Mar-a-Lago, the home of former President Donald J. Trump, purportedly searching for classified documents the president held. The president was in New York at the time, further details are sketchy at the moment. This has never been done to a former president at any time in our history. It is abundantly clear the Department of Justice and the FBI are both under the control of the so-called “democrat” party. This is not a good situation for freedom and justice in the USA.

“ZERO PERCENT INFLATION IN JULY!” These words were uttered repeatedly by Joe Biden on Wednesday after release of the CPI report. How does he face the nation and repeat this crap ad nauseum? This is a blatant lie; we all know it is a blatant lie and yet there will be no accountability. Our politicians lie with abandon, knowing there will be no action taken against their numerous and unending lies. Lies, lies, lies.




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.”
