No Infrastructure For You

Ever since President Carter’s creation of the Department of Energy in 1977, the purpose of which was to become energy independent.  It was a total failure. Not until 2019 in the Trump Administration did the country reach energy independence, where production exceeds consumption, for the first time in 62 years.

That was a time when the economy experienced an economic slowdown, gas prices were rising, gas stations were running out of gas, and the ones that had gas had lines going down the street. The Unites States was at the mercy of foreign countries for oil because we didn’t have enough supply of our own.  People referred to the economy back than as the Carter Malaise.  News organizations were polling and reporting what they called the “Misery Index” on a daily basis.

That President Trump could do this in only 3 years says a lot about the Washington insiders and bureaucrats that, by their actions, or in this case, in-action, could not do. The same politicians who go bonkers come election time, always wanting to spend (they call invest) billions and trillions of dollars in RBI, Roads, Bridges, and Infrastructure. (Joe Biden was in charge of doing just that under President Obama. Remember the “shovel ready” joke?) Should be obvious by now that they didn’t mean a word they said.

The irony in President Biden putting the kibosh on the most important infrastructure project in our time, that truly made us energy independent, somehow (not really) escapes notice in the media.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Systemic crime

The Left (Democrats/Media), are amplifying “systemic racism” in the country. Since its founding no less. Weird how they just started pushing that narrative when President Trump first ran and won, and not before. 

Playing the Race Card is where they go when they’re out of ideas, or, to distract from real problems facing the country. 

If there’s anything “systemic” going on that needs to be addressed, it’s the systemic violence in Democrat-run cities. The riots, the murders, the shootings, the robberies, the rapes, the no-go zones, the guns, and the drugs. And this has not existed since the country’s founding.

It started when Law Enforcers suddenly became the bad guys, and criminals the victims. Credit The Community Organizer and President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama, and “his wing-man” Eric Holder for that. He started it. D’s and the media embraced the narrative. And we are where we are today because of it. 

Politically, it serves their agenda better to blame the opposition Party with the Race Card, than to own up to their failures and get right with enforcing laws everywhere. Protecting people everywhere. Spinning systemic racism like they do is only killing more of the Americans they pretend to represent. But to Democrats, if it means keeping political power, it’s worth it. Or to put it another way, for Democrats, Black lives really don’t matter.

Where’s the commission?

Nobody incited an insurrection in Washington, DC 1/6/21. That’s a big lie, day in and day out. An insurrection without a single weapon. An insurrection when Capitol Police are opening the doors and letting people in.
 
This is just the replacement narrative for Trump/Russia collusion. An attempt at making sure Trump does not return to politics because they know they’re done if he does. That’s all this Big Lie is about. Since this Commission has subpoena power and public hearings, the media will be fed a daily dose of bull Schiff attacking Trump, his business, and . . . you.
 
So, where are the Commissions to investigate Antifa and Black Lives Matter and the 2 billion dollars of damage they’ve created in this country? The police officers who they’ve assaulted and in some cases killed in this country. The civilians who they’ve assaulted and in some cases killed in this country. The small business people they’ve put out of work. Where are the Commissions?
 
Where are the Commissions for the attack on The White House when Donald Trump was president?
 
Where are the Commissions for three months of nightly attacks on a Federal Court House in Portland, Oregon?
 
Where are the Commissions for the lawlessness and anarchy on our Southern Border, at the affirmative direction of the President of the United States, as he’s done nothing to stop it?
 
Where’s the Commission, when Chuck Schumer threatened two Supreme Court Justices a year and a half ago?
 
Where’s the Commission, when Nancy Pelosi incited attacks on Federal Law Enforcement Officers by calling then Storm Troopers?
 
Where are the Commissions for them? That there are none tells you all you need to know about what motivates Pelosi, Schumer, and their ilk.

Hope & Change 2.0


The
contempt, animosity, and disrespect Democrats show the American people is astounding and unbelievable.
 
Nancy Pelosi says you have to pass the bill to see what’s in it. And we did. That was Obamacare and the destruction of the private healthcare industry, discontinued policies and doctors, and increased costs and deductions.
 
Joe Biden just had a campaign whose platform was pretty much unknown. It didn’t become clear until his first day in office. America had to elect him to see what his policies would be. And we did. 
 
That’s twice the American people made a terrible mistake. A mistake in trusting what they say, and putting faith in them doing the right thing when they won’t say.
 
If candidate Joe Biden campaigned on “I’ll kill Keystone XL, open the borders, and give millions of ILLEGAL ALIENS citizenship and welfare,” Trump would be in his second consecutive term.
 
They are a sick, dishonest, and unholy bunch that must be defeated at the ballot box in 2022.

Biden hearts china

On his first day, President Biden put our nation at  unacceptable risk when he dealt a blow to the energy industry. The consequence of which means we will once again be dependent on petroleum from foreign and hostile countries. But in this case, it’s a Two-for. It also gives Canada a poke in the eye to their economy too. Brilliant geopolitical move by President Biden.

“Alberta Premier Jason Kenney said in a different statement that he urged Trudeau to tell Biden that “rescinding the Keystone XL border crossing permit would damage the Canada-US bilateral relationship.”

To refresh your memory, Under President Jimmy Carter, The ‘Department of Energy’ was instituted on August 4, 1977. Its purpose was to lessen U.S. dependence on foreign oil. During Carter’s malaise there were long lines for gas at the gas stations. Prices were high.

Today, and for a few years, China owns and or operates both sides of the Suez Canal and the Panama Canal.  Given the cozy relationship the Biden family has with Communist China, I’m sure Joe doesn’t see how that could be a problem.

So what difference at this point does it make? It doesn’t take a genius to see the consequences of such a move, given the ever increasing presence and pressure from China wanting to rule the world.

The United States is the largest user of the canal; the second-largest is China. Approximately 60 percent of all the cargo that passes through the Panama Canal either originates in or is destined for the United States.

Losing thousands of good paying and mostly union jobs, and an industry, while making us vulnerable to Communist China, is not looking out for America and our interests. 

So whenever China wanted, they can choke the U.S. right out of product, including fuel. The alternate route is around South America. But Hunter is doing OK, and the environmentalist wackos are celebrating. Biden family first, America Last.

Media incites assassination?

One can’t deny the unifying power of President Trump. Even when he doesn’t try.

Democrats, including their candidate for Vice President, have weighed in on the use of force and violence. They’re really in tune (in their own mind) on threats of this nature. For example . . .

Now, eight days before Biden’s inauguration, the media writes about “Targeting A President” in a story about “impeaching” President Trump. A title like “Impeaching A President” just doesn’t do enough for them. We know what Democrats and the Media, but I repeat myself, mean to convey by wording like this. Politically speaking,  there’s not much difference between a bulls-eye and target. One marks the target, the other is the target. For example, remember how they reacted to a Sarah Palin add about congressional district races, ie. Gabby Giffords?

Parties reversed, Democrat leaders would call this a dog whistle to assassinate the President. But they’re not. Giving the Sharpshooter Wing (any wackjob with a gun looking for an excuse) of the Democrat Party the green light. 

Here’s the Front Page of the local, shrinking, newspaper.

Oh the depth and breadth of Trump Derangement Syndrome. Without even trying, President Trump has unified the Democrat Party in supporting violence against their political opposition. Up to and including assassination. 

Note: Currently, Google returns 50 million hits on “democrats target trump.”

U.S. MARINES, Happy 245th Birthday

On November 10, 1775, the Second Continental Congress meeting in Philadelphia passed a resolution stating that “two Battalions of Marines be raised” for service as landing forces with the fleet. This resolution established the Continental Marines and marked the birth date of the United States Marine Corps. Serving on land and at sea, these first Marines distinguished themselves in a number of important operations, including their first amphibious raid into the Bahamas in March 1776, under the command of Captain (later Major) Samuel Nicholas.

The founding of the Marines in November 1775 during the times of the Second Continental Congress was to shut down the Barbary Pirates of Northern Africa who were pirating merchant ships, stealing the cargo and killing the crews in the Mediterranean Sea. As the Marine anthem goes “From the Halls of Montezuma To the Shores of Tripoli…” They were formed to protect shipping from pirates at first. Then grew into a force that can protect our country at home and abroad.

Happy Birthday Marines Corps. God Bless you and your families for your service and sacrifices, keeping us safe, secure, and free.

 

33.1% gdp, Pelosi claims credit

Nancy Pelosi, guest on a Bloomberg TV show, about the huge 33% GDP 3rd Quarter numbers.

“Does that make you think that we may not need another stimulus as much as we thought we did?”
 
PELOSI: No. In fact, it is proof that we need the stimulus even more so. The reason we had a good — a better third quarter is because what we did in the CARES Act and the subsequent legislation for PPP that put money into the economy. That’s gonna wear off, and we need another infusion.”
 
With no shame, Pelosi claims credit for the 33% increase in GDP 3Q. She also claimed that it required their wish list of COVID relief that has nothing to do with COVID.
 
Makes you wonder how much better the numbers would have been if New York, California, New Jersey, Hawaii, and a few other Blue states had participated? 
 
During the relatively flat 2% +or- GDP years of the Obama/Biden administration, we suffered two stimulus packages that did more for labor unions than the economy. No effect to GDP.
 
Truth is, Democrats are never satisfied, and can never be satisfied, when it comes to growing the size of government and government spending. That’s why they call it investing. Sounds better to the dumb masses.

Bobulinski blackout

“Tony Bobulinski, former business associate of Hunter Biden, addresses media in Nashville, Tenn. ahead of second presidential debate.”
 
And by “media,” only FOX News covered it live or reported it.
 
Here’s where the media is today. Well, aside from being the PR Department for the Democrat Party. For over three years, they have been reporting nothing but Trump/Russia collusion in trying to rig the election to favor Trump. Which was proven to be a lie. And they still carry it on today, a la Rep. Adam BullSchiff.
 
And today, when there is a real live participant (that would be like a real whistleblower), who wants to publicly set the record straight, the same media will NOT cover it. Which arguably could be considered an attempt to rig THIS election.
 

Ukraine, the Bidens, and corruption

The Ukraine government held a press conference on “international corruption and external governance of Ukraine.” The hour-long video includes recorded phone conversations between Joe Biden and Ukrainian officials. It necessarily includes Barisma and other corrupt Ukranian companies, including Hunter Biden, Joe Biden, and their participation. 

It lays out how Ukranian money left Ukraine for Hunter Biden and his shadow businesses and partners. It also accuses the U.S. Treasury Dept swamp of trying to stop this Ukranian official from releasing their findings.

Ukranian investigators want to talk to Joe and Hunter Biden about it, in Ukraine, under oath. How’s that for a way to end a campaign?
