Texas Factory Activity Increased in January
Texas factory activity increased in January, according to the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas Texas Manufacturing Outlook Survey. While factory activity continued to increase in January, it was at a slower pace, per the executives responding to the survey. The production index, a key measure of state manufacturing conditions, hit an eight-month low of 16.6, but the reading still indicates above average output growth. Other measure of manufacturing activity also indicated continued growth.
US Raw Steel Production Down from Previous Week

US Drill Rigs Running Up from Previous Week

Policy Priority Disconnect
What have the idiots in Washington been doing lately? Let’s have a little run down; While the left is focused on the green new deal, equity, covid, transgenderism, raising taxes, where do I pee? packing the Supreme Court, adding 2 states to the Union and other bullshit designed to give them control over the people, the real problems most Americans see and want dealt with are: high inflation, rampant crime, border security, China, Russia, Iran and their evil aims, media censorship, what is being taught our children in school, keeping schools open. These are all very real concerns, yet the administration is not dealing effectively with any of them. correct me if I am wrong.
Troops Headed to Eastern Europe
3,000 more US troops headed to eastern Europe, in addition to the 8500 announced last week. This is not a place we need to be with so much needing attention here at home.
Cancel Culture Headlines
If you’re paying attention, you have no doubt noticed that “cancel culture” is alive and well…and now attacking progressives. Former governor Cuomo, his brother, Chris, Whoopi Goldberg being the latest. Joe Rogan, an independent, Jeff Zucker, former head of CNN. I’m sure there are more, and it is nice to see them get a taste of their own medicine. Now, if they would investigate Hunter Biden and his father, then Bill & Hillary, Comey, Brennan, Clapper, Rice… ad nauseum
BLM-the fascist organization which does not give a shit about Black Americans, has apparently dissolved its management team which took with it some $60 million. It started with leader, Cullors, whose first name I cannot recall. Last summer she was found to have purchased two homes worth about $3 million. Never gave an explanation and was never asked to give one. She just disappeared. No one knows who, if anyone, is running BLM. No one knows where their offices are, if there are employess etc. Just a big scam.
Maskless with Magic
Gavin Newsom, California governor caught unmasked at the LA Rams game last weekend, also, Eric Garcetti, mayor of Los Angeles, also caught maskless at the same game. Newsom apologized, the other asshole said he “held his breath” which shows you what he thinks of your intelligence. These leftists are something else.
Johns Hopkins Study on Lockdown Effect on Mortality Rates
Johns Hopkins University came out with a study report this week which found that the covid lockdowns did not do much at all to reduce mortality from covid. They did, however, cost untold dollars in economic harm, wasted two years of education of our youth, forced thousands to permanently close their small businesses and a myriad of other negative outcomes. You see, these idiots in government do not know more than the rest of us, they just think they do. Rules for thee, not for me. A bunch of clowns.
ISIS Leader Dies
Sometime Thursday, Sleepy Joe had our military bomb a building in Syria, killing the current leader of ISIS who apparently detonated a bomb vest, killing him and his family-coward . I don’t hear anything from the media, but I do remember Trump icing al Baghdadi and Soleimani, both real bad dudes… yet Trump was vilified by the media. Double standards-a typical leftist move.
Biden was in New York on Thursday to meet with Mayor Eric Adams about the violence which has taken over New York and many other cities. Unfortunately, and as is typical, Biden blames the guns, not the violent criminals.

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.”
