Putin Price Hikes
On Monday, the day before release of the March CPI, Jen Psaki labeled the current inflation the “Putin price hikes.” All they do is lie, lay blame elsewhere and deflect. If Putin has anything to do with it, it is minimal. The Biden administration is the culprit and the Democratic communists are the only ones buying their horseshit-and less and less of them are taking the bait.
The CPI inflation rate came in at 8.5% for the month of March. Putin’s price hike? I think not.
“Ghost Guns,” another attack on the 2nd Amendment. How many sportsmen, as a hobby, assemble their own firearms to hunt or target shoot at the range? Parts can be purchased from a myriad of manufacturers on the open market for assembly, there are no serial numbers on individual parts thus there is no traceable serial number for the firearm. Criminals can file off the serial number of any firearm. Ghost guns are not the issue, the criminal is the issue.
Philadephia Indoor Mask Mandates
Next week, Philadelphia will institute indoor mask mandates. Why wait a week (answer: because it is unnecessary)? As a skeptic, I see this move as laying the groundwork for mail in voting demands come the mid-term elections in 6 months. Mark my words.
On the same subject, the Biden administration is considering extending the mask mandate for airplanes beyond April18. Why? Because they need chaos prior to the mid-terms. There is no reason for people to be forced into masking. You want to wear a mask, go ahead but do not try to force others to succumb to this leftist bullcrap.
NYC Subway Shooter
Description: “A man, about 5 foot 5, 180 pounds, wearing a green construction vest and a gray hoodie.”
This was the initial description of the suspect who shot 10 people and wounded 20 others on a New York subway this week. It took an entire day for the news to mention that he was a black man. Why is everyone so afraid to call it like it is??? Furthermore, this man, according to his social media posts, was a raging racist, constantly spewing hatred toward white people. Of course, no social media blocked his racist posts. Reverse the situation and you can imagine what would happen. Things have become awfully twisted in this liberal society. Personally, I don’t like it one bit.
Now it is racist and dangerous for news people to question the expenditures of BLM founders, including the purchase of several multi-million-dollar homes. How is that helping anyone in the Black community-other than themselves?

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.”
