Today, President Joe Biden pardoned all prior federal and D.C. offenses of “simple marijuana possession.” He also called on governors to pardon simple state marijuana possession offenses.
“The Justice Department will expeditiously administer the President’s proclamation, which pardons individuals who engaged in simple possession of marijuana, restoring political, civil, and other rights to those convicted of that offense.”
But you will still lose your 2nd Amendment Right if you have a simple medical marijuana prescription. The Obama/Biden Administration’s DOJ did that 4 days before leaving office. Apparently, possessing a medical marijuana prescription is more troublesome than being arrested for possessing and using marijuana itself.

Excessive government interference in the free market won’t put the Mexican cartels out of business. On the contrary. It empowers them. In the same way that government open border policies do.

What Tyranny Looks Like
High-ranking officials in the Biden administration worked hand in hand with influential social media companies to censor content that was deemed “misinformation,” according to emails revealed this week. The government identified “examples of problematic content,” and social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter would remove the posts, said the emails obtained in a lawsuit by Republican attorneys general Erich Schmitt of Missouri and Jeff Landry of Louisiana.
White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre clammed up when asked about the Biden administration’s alleged collusion with big tech.
“So, I–I–I don’t have anything to share with you on that. I’m not going to comment on that right at this time,” the White House press secretary said during the briefing.

Woke Or Consequences
“As Bed Bath & Beyond continues to face tanking stock prices and company-wide restructuring, one of the company’s executives jumped to his death on Friday, according to a news report.”
Was this decline before or after the company went woke and announced it was no longer selling anything from the My Pillow company? Causation or Correlation?

It’s not news that the Second Amendment has been under attack by the Left for years. Decades in fact.
Four days from the end of the Obama administration, Obama’s DOJ added an infringement to purchasing a firearm. If you have a prescription for medical marijuana, you have no Second Amendment Right. But prescriptions for all other drugs are OK.
Maybe it’s been this way since 2017, I don’t know. But I heard today that if you have a Concealed Carry Permit, it will be revoked (infringed) if you obtain a medical marijuana prescription. You can’t have both. And you thought you had personal privacy.
All this is predicated on the fact that marijuana is still illegal at the federal level. There’s no distinction between prescribed and not prescribed. But hey, any way they can infringe on the Second Amendment, they will.
The #AmericanMarxist Left must be replaced with real Americans who support and defend the Constitution.

Here’s yet another reason to fire FBI Director Christopher Wray. Through mismanagement or no management, the FBI’s communication management is so bad that they have to issue estimates on crimes rates this year.
Why? “[N]ot every law enforcement agency in the U.S. has successfully moved to the National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS) for reporting their crime data”
They’ve known about it since 2015. It was supposed to be completed by 2021. Good example of bureaucracy gone amok. How can they fight crime (instead of looking for crime) if they can’t even communicate?
So who’s affected by this? “A few major cities, however, are still working on the transition. Crime estimates will fill in the gaps where data is not available this year.”
We should trust their estimates on the major crime cities in the country.
And you also won’t get national stats. “The release will not include national view tables.”
Two things I don’t doubt about this story. The incompetence of big government. And political bias in the estimates. Meaning, they will be understated. Because that’s what they do.
This is how Wray was received when Biden took over. “Biden will reportedly keep Wray as FBI director, choosing to avoid turmoil” is the headline. The “choosing to avoid turmoil” part, in Democratspeak means “yippee, we keep our swamp dweller and appear to be magnanimous to the gullible Republicans.”
Did I say the midterms are coming?

Below was my comment to the DOJ over the show raid at President Trump’s Florida home. The weaponization of the Justice Department for political purposes, FBI, is not acceptable, unconstitutional, and has got to be fixed. Time to stand up to this tyrannical Obama/Biden Administration, DOJ, FBI, and a host of top officials in them. Doing nothing will be to accept a Banana Republic, or Russian style of government. Biden’s version of the KGB. “President” Joe Biden and his administration is the threat to Democracy, not Trump.
If you’d like to petition the government too, here’s the LINK.
The Founding Fathers knew how corrupt a government could get. Because of that, they gave citizens the right and power to defend themselves against a tyrannical government in the Second Amendment. They also gave us the right to petition the government in the First Amendment. So, “when tyranny becomes law, resistance becomes duty.”*
Where Biden, Garland, and Wray are concerned, Trump Derangement Syndrome seems to have metastasized.

The shift to Marxism, or in President Obama’s words, fundamentally changing America, can’t happen in any honest manner with the consent of the American people. But it’s happening nonetheless, thanks to Nancy Pelosi and her soul brothers in the House by including it all in a Budget Resolution with zero transparency. And it’s full speed ahead for as long as they have control of Congress and The White House.
The borders are open (Cuba excepted) for two reasons. First of which is to chang the demographics of the country.
Because of the Lat-crit theory, born of Critical Race Theory, the second purpose is to say that if you are an American citizen, and you are not a Latino American citizen, or of Slaves or Black American citizen, then the whole notion of American citizenship is bogus. The whole notion of the United States is bogus. This is a fraudulent country, that was imposed on the indigenous people of the Americas by White Protestant Europeans. So it’s impossible to have illegal immigration with an open border. And if you protest or disagree, and don’t like an open border, then you are a contributor to the White dominant society, and dismissed. It’s what Marxists do.
That, and the Democrats obtain a permanent majority. By destroying the Separation of Powers, by destroying Checks and Balances, by destroying and nationalizing the voting system, by having the borders wide open, they will change the citizenry, they will change the demographics, they will change what voting means, and they will change federalism into nationalism. All that, with no debate, no transparency to the citizenry, stuffed into a budget resolution. That’s just how evil Pelosi and her Democrat colleagues are.

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.
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.
