Diversity At The Expense Of Excellence

We could have done better. We already pointed out Kamala Harris’ approval rating and the many leaks about the divide between her and Biden. Lloyd Austin showed weakness in the handling of the Afghanistan pull-out and subsequent hearings before Congress. Alejandro Mayorkas is failing miserably with the Border crisis, and the calls for his resignation or replacement are mounting. Pete Buttigieg was off on three months of Family Leave as the country dealt with the worst supply chain issue in our lifetime. Diverse, yes. Capable, not really.

A Dozen Nameless Americans Prove the System Works

Interestingly, the same people who pointed to the jury as the final word in the OJ trial cannot do the same in the Rittenhouse case. The jury and its verdict only work when it serves their cause, and their cause is always Race. It is startling to see the number of people who think the people shot by Rittenhouse were black. This is the perception the media gave them.

For Reid It Is Joy To Embarrassment

Reid is a Harvard graduate, though her major was film studies. She is the daughter of immigrants. Her father is from the Congo, and her mother is from Guyana. Both educated people who met in Grad school in Iowa, of all places. Rather than celebrate the opportunity this country has given her and her parents, she chooses to dwell on this country being a systematically racist hell hole.

George Stephanopoulos…Secretary Of Dumpster Fires

Biden and Harris are suffering from plummeting approval ratings. That is bad enough but throw in the leaks about infighting and a growing divide between POTUS and the VEEP. The latter is why the sit-down happened this week with George and Kamala. There have been numerous leaks from the Vice President’s staff with the same story of discontent and division. These leaks are not a situation of a disgruntled individual trying to level a score.

When Has The World Gone Too Far?

Here in the States, one college professor has chosen a different aspect of the sex world to destigmatize and redefine. An assistant professor of sociology and criminal justice at Old Dominion University, Allyn Walker, gave an interview this month about a book he wrote that seeks to distinguish between pedophiles and “minor-attracted people” who do not act on their attraction. He identifies minor-attracted people by the acronym MAP.

Small Town America Needs To Be Rescued

In addition to the obvious expense to the taxpayers of Exeter who have to pay to defend the SAU and then foot the bill for any settlements, the Education Department is a stain on our proud town. These incidents indicate a systemic problem with the department. That problem is a lack of respect for students, their parents, and the goal of educating our children.

Our Leaders Need A Reality Check

And so does the Mainstream Media. There is a prevailing attitude by Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, administration members, and the talking heads that they can say anything without fact check. Whether it is about the Border, Energy Crisis, Gas Prices, Mask or Vaccine Mandates, or Inflation, these people feel they can say whatever random thought they have, and we should be satisfied with their answer.

It is Time to Stop Giving BLM Credibility

As historical statues have come down across the country, some cities have given homage to BLM by painting streets with their logo or naming city areas after the victims of shootings like George Floyd Square in downtown Minneapolis. In my opinion, some cities did this to assuage BLM and to overcompensate for any hint of racism against the BLM group or its beliefs.

Biden’s Debacles: Where Do We Look For Optimism?

Crime is on the rise, and the Justice Department is turning its head to prosecuting offenders. We are still losing over 1,000 COVID-19 victims every day, which is ahead of the 2020 pace. Our President falls asleep at a Climate Summit, and our Vice-President embarrasses herself every time she comes out of hiding. It is not surprising that Biden and Harris have 38% and 28% approval ratings respectively.

Biden’s Side Of The Truth

The problem with Biden chiming in is twofold. Being the President, even a senile incompetent President, his words carry weight. His ardent followers will believe it without question. They will not formulate their own opinion based on facts as that takes too much work. The other is the fodder it supplies for the Mainstream Media. They will use the President’s comments as the talking points for the “news” cycle.

Remember “Flatten The Curve?”

None of these metrics were enough for Fauci or Biden, as their quest for power and control over America has forced them to keep moving the goalposts. Through Mask and Vaccine Mandates and the use of government and private methods of pressure, these folks may never be at a point of satisfaction. They are intoxicated with the control and power they have developed over us and are now looking at creative means to tighten the noose.

Joe, It’s A Mess… Get Out Of The Way

The best move for Biden and his team is to get out of the way. Get into their respective basements and get out of the way. Stop making bad decisions or any decision, period. You have done enough damage. Let the free market and capitalism take the controls and get us out of this mess. I listened to Biden yesterday say he is working on lowering costs on food and goods and getting the shelves filled. He does not understand the role of government.

April Ryan Is A Dangerous, Racist Individual

Call me naive, but I have always thought that having media outlets that cater to a particular race or ethnic group, in this case, Black, is itself Racist. I think that singling out groups to celebrate, such as Black History Month or Gay Pride Week, promotes division and does the opposite of their intentions. I was not raised looking through the lens of color, but people like April Ryan try to force us to look through their lens.

Hey Mainstream Media…You Are the Story

The absolute truth takes far too much effort to uncover, so they use their truth that fits the narrative. Talking heads on CNN, MSNBC, and the three major broadcast networks won awards for their reporting of the Russia Hoax and the Steele Dossier. They are about as valuable as the Emmy awarded to Andrew Cuomo. They are bogus, self-serving awards given to charlatans for reporting on fictional stories. Today, the government lies, and the media nods and makes it their truth, as long as it beats down the Right.

Who Are the 38% Who Do Approve?

Last year, America was energy independent and was exporting oil and gas. Today, we are back to reliance on OPEC and Russia to supply our energy needs, and they are setting the price. To compound that situation, Biden announced over the weekend that he would close the Michigan Pipeline. This pipeline supplies more than 540,000 barrels of crude every day from Canada. We will need to replace this oil from overseas, which will add more people to the ranks of the unemployed.

What A Whirlwind Week: GOP And Dems Are On Different Pages

Except for the Infrastructure Legislation, the Republicans came out on top this week, and America sent a clear message to Democrats. We do not want your big spending, and we do enjoy our freedom. Democrats did not hear or chose to ignore the word of the people. They do this at their own peril. Not only did Republicans score big, but Democrats have given them soundbites and videos to use in every campaign in 2022.

Crime Does Pay, Just Ask Joe

So we have a President that is at best working part-time. He has diminished mental capacity. Biden is showing he also does not have the skill set to carry out his duties. He is losing the support of Americans and is now losing the support of the Democrat party. He was brought in to help in Virginia and may have hurt the ticket. He has embarrassed himself on the world stage, and, let’s face it, there is no upside to Joe Biden.

Dems Have A Wall…And It’s Kamala Harris

What options do Democrats have? They are few, and all are worse than what they have now. If they need to remove Biden due to his increased lack of mental ability, they end up with Kamala behind the resolute desk. If they can hide Joe for the next three years, they will be hard-pressed to move Kamala out of the way for any Democrat candidate they think can get elected after four years of Biden. The best option would be to replace Kamala first and then get Joe to retire gracefully.

Dems Have A Problem With Word Meaning

Nothing is free except for the air around us and the water in the oceans that divide us. When a politician claims that a provision in a bill is free, what they mean is that there is no cost for the user, but the burden to pay for the benefit for one is someone higher on the economic ladder. Free works until you run out of people to pay the bill.

Tyranny On The Rise: Is It Time to Worry Yet?

This question is not a joke. But it does show how a few people can impact all. People have been planting and growing vegetables in America since before the Pilgrims landed. The Indians gave the Pilgrims some pointers on gardening in the new world. Now a few people claim the gases emitting from our small gardens are harming the ecosystem. In response, a ballot question needs to be considered. It’s such a waste of energy and shines a negative light on the election process.

Alec Baldwin Has PTSD…Really?

Alec Baldwin did not have something happen to him. Alec Baldwin is not the victim here. PTSD is typically associated with someone dealing with their experience in combat. To claim Baldwin has PTSD is to minimize the meaning of PTSD. I am sure that Baldwin is traumatized by his involvement in the death of Halyna and the injuring of the movie’s director, Joel Souza. After all, he did pull the trigger.

Tonight’s Main Event: Paul Vs Fauci

While being grilled by Rand Paul about this possible funding, Dr. Fauci has vehemently denied the allegation. These sessions have gotten very heated and sometimes get very personal. An example was this past July when Fauci was testifying before a Senate committee. When the doctor and Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) directly quoted the NIH, a Wuhan virology paper, and a molecular biologist from Rutgers regarding NIH’s funding of gain-of-function in the Wuhan, China lab. President Biden’s coronavirus expert Dr. Anthony Fauci testified, “Senator Paul, you do not know what you are talking about, quite frankly.

It’s Not Easy Being Green: As Biden’s Presidency Crumbles, He’s Focused On An Issue Low On Our Priority List

While the country is suffering from the Biden decisions to date, Biden is intent on making a show of power at the G-20 that the United States is ready to take the lead on the battle against Climate Change. Maybe those Americans that cannot afford to heat their homes this winter wish we could go back to Global Warming, but that was a sham. Keep in mind that as Biden and his Baker’s Dozen Secretary Troupe are working to convince the world how green we are, China will be at home.
