No future awaits those who rage against family, work, and community.

Where there is no bread, there is no Law. Where there is no Law, there is no bread.

— Rabbi Elazar Ben Azariah

Racial identity politics has become the rage in the media, entertainment, and political worlds. You cannot read a mainstream publication, attend a sporting event, or browse a new educational curriculum without running a gauntlet of admonitions about America’s “systemic” racism and how it must be addressed, including through violence.

Millionaire athletes, anchors, non-profits, and corporate executives genuflect to groups like Black Lives Matter, an organization with openly radical, neo-Marxist aims. Yet amidst all this, very little attention has focused on what actually works for minorities who have faced harsh treatment in the past. By focusing largely on white guilt, suggests Rolling Stone’s Matt Taibbi, movements like BLM embrace a form of “egghead racialism” that sees salvation as part of an effort to “strive to be less white,” as if their very pigmentation is a mark of inherent evil.

No doubt this agenda is working profitably for some, such as writers and administrators in the diversity “industry” and even some black fashion designers. But rhetorical genuflecting and quotas for board seats does little to improve the conditions on the ground for the vast majority of historically disadvantaged groups like African-Americans. As John McWhorter pointed out in the Atlantic, the idea that black progress relies largely on addressing white sinfulness seems an extreme form of “dehumanizing condescension” that robs Blacks, and other minorities, of any agency outside protest or destruction and does little to address the underlying causes of despair.

What works? A historical perspective

In today’s “woke” politics, some may insist I (a white male in his sixties) have no business even addressing these issues. Yet it seems far more useful, if we are serious about addressing racial disparities, to look at what has worked in the past—for both African-Americans and other groups—to transcend discrimination and create a durable success in a diverse society.

In doing research for my 1992 book Tribes, I found ethnic success was less about gaining unquestioning compliance on cultural and political matters from the majority than in encouraging behaviors, such as frugality, hard work and mutual support. This latter approach has propelled virtually every successful dispersed ethnic group, from the Jews and British to the Chinese, Indians, Palestinians, Lebanese, and West Indians. As the great Arab historian Ibn Khaldun noted, “Only tribes held together by a group feeling can survive in the desert.”

This notion of a mutual assistance is more important than attempts to “reprogram” whites into “anti-racism” as defined by the woke. Discriminated-against minorities have succeeded, first and foremost, by developing their own skills and economic power, building alternative institutions and strengthening family ties.

In this country, Irish, Italians, Jews, and Asians, among others, were long barred from certain jobs and many neighborhoods. Rather than wait for the majority to discover tolerance, they labored in niche economies—fish mongering and construction among Italians, gardening and farming among Japanese, retail ownership for Koreans and the garment trade for the Jews. Among Asians, the first generation’s struggles allowed their children to make remarkable progress by stressing education and, when needed, political action. These groups have done, for the most part, better than whites. Asians, for example, constitute 74 percent of all Stuyvesant, a prestigious New York City academic high school, students.

African-Americans once widely embraced this approach. In the first half century after slavery many leaders, from pragmatists like Booker T. Washington to nationalists like Marcus Garvey, stressed both personal responsibility and social cohesion. Even Garvey, the father of black nationalism, modeled his program partly on Jewish success.

At its very essence, it seems absurd to base a group’s ascent on winning over people assumed to be congenitally racist at heart. Indeed much of the strongest progress among African-Americans took place in the 1950s and 1960s, when discrimination was far more rampant but black business communities, families, and church institutions were not just intact but cohesive and strong. The Blacks who built successful businesses in the first half of the last century, notes historian John Sibley Butler, nurtured a culture of “self-help”—in part due to their exclusion from mainstream business—that brought economic rewards, helping build powerful religious and educational institutions critical to the nascent Civil Rights Movement.

When integration came, many talented African-Americans naturally jettisoned ethnic business, turning largely to corporate and government positions. As they secured their rights, the community bifurcated between a sizable, successful managerial middle class that expanded  significantly since 1960, and a vast underclass. Yet in recent decades this progress has slowed, particularly in education, with African-Americans lagging recent arrivals from Latin America, Asia, and the Middle East. Since 2000, Black median household incomes dropped by five percent while whites grew by six percent.

The vulnerability of the impoverished parts of the Black Community—roughly two times in percentage as that of the general population—have been tragically accentuated by the pandemic. Whether in New York, Detroit, New Orleans, Houston or Los Angeles, the brunt of the infection, outside nursing homes, has been felt in poor neighborhoods. In both New Orleans and Detroit, the vast majority of deaths have been African-Americans. The virus might be colorblind but, as Brookings reports, much more prevalent in areas with large minority populations.

What works, what does not

Race-based politics work naturally in countries, like China, where the vast majority of the population are of one ethnic group. Han nationalism works well unless you happen to be a Uighur, or an African migrant worker. But in a country like America, where the majority is white and minority population is increasingly diverse, imposing racial imperatives is far trickier.

In a multicultural society—where Blacks are roughly 13 percent of the population—radical racial politics have limited staying power. To boost their percentages, academics and media now include other groups, like Asians and Latinos, as “people of color”. These are all potentially united against the detested white patriarchy and the traditional family.

Yet in reality this ambition rests on a fantasy. Overall, immigrants, according to one recent survey, are twice as conservative in their social views than the general public. Indeed church leaders from Latino, Asian, African American and Muslim communities have been on the forefront in California of opposing new sex education standards, which include some graphic representations of carnal acts of various kinds.

These minorities may not embrace the entire political agenda on the Right, particularly to the degree they associate it with belligerently nativist Trump supporters. But it’s clear that many  “people of color” do not share the worldview of faculty lounge post-modern feminists. Race is also not necessarily as socially determinative as is often suggested. Black immigrants from Africa and the Caribbean enjoy much higher rates of intact marriage and incomes than their African-American counterparts and are better educated than the average native born American.

The problem with the riot ideology

The kind of racialized violence now taking place reflects what historian Fred Siegel called “the riot ideology”, which has been deleterious to the progress of African Americans. The rioting in the 1960s weakened urban economies and led to devastating losses for minority property owners and businesses. Even today many areas burned down in the 1960s in Chicago, St. Louis and Detroit have never recovered.

Indeed despite massive expenditures to redress huge past inequities, high-poverty areas in cities have grown steadily, doubling in population between 1980 and 2018. Looting and mayhem, long-term, don’t work. After the 1992 riots, there were pledges of massive corporate and government support for south Los Angeles. Now, almost three decades later, the area, site of two of the worst riots in American history, has experienced a growing gap with the rest of the county in terms of homeownership, income and educational attainment.

The more recent disorders also are unlikely to spark much long-term inner-city investment. Chicago’s Mayor Lori Lightfoot worries about large retailers such as Walgreen’s and Whole Foods not rebuilding their looted stores, saying it will take a “herculean effort” to keep them in the city.

The long-term political ramifications may also be less sanguine than evident today. To be sure, most Americans (correctly) want to see more police reform. As in the case of the 1960s civil rights movement, an appeal to basic decency was strongly supported by most Americans. But as activists turned more violent, openly anti-American and separatist, public support tends to recede. This helped secure victories for right-wing candidates like Ronald Reagan, elected the year after the 1965 Watts riots and, three years later, contributed to Richard Nixon winning the Presidency.

Today the violent turn of the post-Floyd protests could also spark growing reaction among Americans, perhaps the one thing that can rescue the slipping Trump prospects. Despite the justified concern about police abuse, most Americans, including African-Americans and by a wide margin Latinos, for example, overwhelmingly oppose defunding of law enforcement. Support overall for this position barely reaches 25 percent.

A dangerous shift

What is at stake is our ability to be a functioning pluralistic democracy. A country that witnessed growing rates of intermarriage and more congenial attitudes of race is now headed in the opposite direction, with more Americans seeing a deterioration in ethnic relations. Just like the ‘60s and ‘70s, black militants and white nationalists share an oddly common interest in supplanting a working pluralism with one at a hostile impasse.

The current wave of racial unrest has not been as lethal as past outbreaks, but has a clearer agenda. In sharp contrast to the grassroots explosion I witnessed firsthand in Los Angeles in 1992, today radical organizers and white activists now play a primary role. Particularly notable has been the continuing unrest in cities such as Portland, San Francisco, and Seattle that have small, and usually diminishing, black populations. Blacks may be fleeing these cities in droves, but white city officials in places like Seattle demand that their employees engage in “whiteness training” to wipe away the sins of their unfortunate pigmentation.

This pernicious development reflects the growing power of academia and media on what now passes as the Left. Much of this reflects a kind of cultural revolution, including a thorough reevaluation of American history, pushed most notably in the New York Times 1619 Project, an effort to recast the past disputed as highly distorted even by left-leaning historians.

The notion of America’s intrinsic evil may be popular on campuses, newsrooms and at CNN, but the ideology’s negative impact will be suffered by those left behind  in these distressed communities. Diverting funds away from the police may have been seen as politically expedient, but it has not helped Baltimore, a city with a long history of police abuse, curb its astronomical murder rate. Similarly, “defunding” efforts are unlikely to bring down Chicago’s persistently high homicide rate, or in once-safe cities like New York, as it and other blue cities have emptied jails and reduced enforcement.

Wrecking the institutions

In backing the Black Lives Matter movement, the corporate elite have decided to play the classic role that Lenin called “useful idiots”. Perhaps someone should let Jeff Bezos know BLM favors radical socialist economics to battle what its founders see as “racial capitalism ”. Liberals, particularly Jews, should recognize BLM condemns Israel as “genocidal”. Academic Melina Abdullah, a prominent BLM spokesperson in Los Angeles, is an open admirer of the racist, anti-Semitic Nation of Islam.

Adoption of the Black Lives Matter ideology threatens every institution it touches, imposing its will in Hollywood and the arts. Now as in the old Soviet Union or China today, culture is supposed to service the officially approved agenda. Race activists have been particularly successful in turning the education system, including primary schools, into instruments of indoctrination, through both social justice courses and activities increasingly required for both students and faculty.

Most amazing, given the enormous sacrifices for integration made by civil rights workers, some universities have embraced again segregation—what Western Washington University activists call “black student space” and even academic programs designed only for minority students. Worse yet, woke activists, white and black, denounce as “hopelessly white” behaviors that have worked for every ethnic group, including African Americans. The new notion, as the Smithsonian recently suggested, labels such things as intact family structures, frugality, and punctuality as “white” characteristics, opposed to universal keys to upward mobility.

In the process, academia, always a source of inspiration, is abandoning efforts to provide useful skills for the information age, preferring to double down on dysfunction. The English department at Rutgers, out of sympathy with BLM, have even suspended teaching proper grammar, as if this is still not important for success. Even science is being systematically challenged to fit the progressive racial agenda. Notoriously, one activist academic actually identifies the notion of two plus two equal four as “cultural” construct from Western imperialism/colonization, ignoring the fact that modern mathematics derives not from Europe but from India and the Arab world.

This is clearly destructive. Perhaps worst of all, Black Lives Matter is dismissive of the traditional family, but seeks to “disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure.” Given that much of the disparity between the races lies in the integrity of the family this approach seems patently self-destructive. The fact that seventy percent of Black children are born to single mothers should be seen as a critical problem, rather than celebrated as a departure from dreaded “whiteness.”

Needed: A return to what really works

Rather than soulful sympathy and symbolic gestures aimed to redress past crimes, minorities need a program that addresses the real problems of unemployment, underemployment, rampant obesity, lack of affordable housing, and fractured families. To address these issues, minorities need to emulate the brave African-American business pioneers of the late 19th and early 20th Century, who formed a culture built around mutual assistance, family and work.

Ultimately, there can be no useful response to future pandemics or social unrest without addressing the persistence of poverty and lack of upward mobility, what I consider the most pressing issues of our time. Traditional social democrats like myself may endorse different approaches than those of conservatives, but all should train the eye on what Martin Luther King, Jr. called “the prize”, the provision of greater opportunity irrespective of race.

Whether in the Jim Crow South, the 1960s or today, what works for the aggrieved is not victimization and racial obsession, but adopting attitudes that have helped successful groups and people of all colors. Hard work, family, mutual assistance, and a devotion to logic are not constructs of Caucasian culture—many non-whites often exhibit these characteristics more than whites—but simply the surest pathways that have led even the most discriminated groups to a better future.

In Philadelphia recently Biden gave a speech in front of a backdrop that looked like it came from the depths of hell. He said that these” MAGA Republicans” are a direct threat to our “democracy”. All lies, especially because we do not have a democracy, but instead our forefathers designed this country as a Republic to protect individual rights from “mob rule”.
He has also said that our greatest threat as a nation is “climate change”, and that the Chinese are not a threat, that they are “Good people, folks”. Another obvious lie. The Chinese, along with their ambition of world dominance is by far our greatest threat.
He told us that the “Inflation Reduction Act”, was just what we needed to combat inflation, but it was never designed to reduce inflation, but instead was a back door to a version of the “Green New Deal”. Another lie, this act will increase inflation and spend ½ trillion dollars on initiatives that will do nothing to improve the environment, but will line special interests with money, some of which will be donated back to the Democrat Party.
He even told us last year that the most important thing we can do if we live in a hurricane prone area, is to get vaccinated! Another stupid lie, and it makes one wonder if he really does think we are stupid, or at least that his handlers do!
I could go on and on with incidents of him lying to us, but I think I will touch on his biggest lie of all. He states that since “climate change” is the biggest threat we face, he introduced an Executive order to have all federal agencies to have a 60% reduction in carbon-based fuels by 2035, and have a net zero policy by 2050. First, this will never happen, as there are no real reliable replacements for petroleum products for fuel, heating, and a myriad of other uses we have for this feedstock.

This executive order also includes the military.  Analysts say that we would have to drastically reduce the footprint of our military to come anywhere near this dictate.  At the same time our real present and future danger, China, is quickly building up its military to challenge and overtake our own.  Can you imagine fighter jets without jet fuel, and a military with electric vehicles?  Who will benefit besides China if we actually go down this ridiculous path?  Could it be military contractors, who will be obliged to kick back a percentage to the Democrat Party? 

We already have seen Europe, an area that deeply embraced their own version of the “Green New Deal”, suffering because of the lack of petroleum and natural gas that was formerly coming from Russia.  Their windmills and solar panels will not be enough to keep them warm this winter, let alone power their economies.  That future is for us, if we do not do something to stop the madness.  

We have mid-term elections coming up in just a few weeks.  If you want to tie the hands of Sleepy Joe, we need to vote Republican, and that goes for Federal, State, and County elections.  We cannot let them win.  If we do nothing, they will, and our lives will change forever.  Save our Country, our State, and our County, and do the right thing!  Vote Republican!  Remember, every vote that stays home, is a vote for the insanity we now are witnessing.  Every vote counts!

Here is a video from Senate Republicans stating why we have to make changes now!


I have to believe that Joe Biden is being used.  No one can be this stupid!  Everything that is being done in his name is a detriment to our country, our way of life, and our status in the world.  Open borders, hyper-inflationary policies, increasing the debt, the war on gas and oil, the war on our children, and hundreds of other issues with this guy.  On top of that, it is clearly evident that he is not of right mind.  He is old and demented.  Someone else is pulling the strings, and the end game seems to be to bring the USA to its knees. 

What is the game plan?  From what I can see, the ultimate plan is to crash our economy, enter ourselves into a “NEW WORLD ORDER”, and comply with those that would rule us.  What else could it possibly be?  We do have a hope, and that is that we take over the house and most probably the senate and stop the madness.  We also need every sensible State Attorney General to sue the Biden Administration for their unconstitutional works. 

The latest insult is the Executive Order to eliminate student loan debt.  It is patently unconstitutional, and needs big push back.  I’m sure that Attorney General Paxton of Texas will sue, and I’m also sure that many other Attorney Generals will follow suit.  I believe that the lawsuits are already being prepared, and the game is on! 

Time is running out for the Progressive Cabal that is now controlling our country.  They are not just going to stop here.  We will see many other insane budget additions come up before November, and I pray that our party will resist at every level.  We cannot let these people turn our wonderful country into a 3rd world state.  It would not only be devastating for us, but the whole world would suffer immensely.  We are the glue that keeps the world at peace.  If the world loses us, the world itself is lost!

The November election is coming up fast!  Please, vote your conscience, vote for our country, vote for our lifestyles, and most of all, vote for the safety and security of the world at large.  There has never been a more important election in our lifetimes, and what is at stake is critical!  Let’s take the country back, and let’s ensure that what is happening now does not continue, and is reversed at the first possible time.  We cannot continue to the “SHINING CITY ON THE HILL”, blessed by God, and admired by the world, if we continue on the path of destruction.  It has to end now, and we still have the vote to end the madness! 


We recently found out that President Trump’s Florida residence at Mar A Lago was raided by the FBI.  No particular reason has been given for the raid.  This is simply just another attack on him from the Administrative State to try to push him away from running in 2024.  They have been doing this for 6 years, and so far have come up with zero.  What do they think they will find now?

The Administrative State is the key word to understand everything that is happening around us right now.  The people that actually control us are leftist bureaucrats.  They run everything.  They have all the intelligence agencies, the IRS, the EPA and virtually the entire framework of the Federal Government.  These same leftists have been busy for over a half a century.  They have taken over our educational system, our media, Hollywood, virtually everything in our present culture.  Now they also have the levers of power in Washington, and they are not going to give up their power.  They will do anything to keep it and grow it stronger.  In fact, they want to give us what Obama promised, a fundamental transformation to Socialism, and after that Globalism.  They are relentless, and they know their time is starting to run out, and they are also desperate. 

They have been successful in indoctrinating the last 2 generations of our children, who for the most part believe that being “woke” is the most intelligent way for them to live their lives.  They do not believe in any debate in society.  They believe that what they are fed in popular culture is the righteous way to live and to direct the country.  They have been successfully indoctrinated, and do not want and will not stand to hear dissenting opinions. 

The left is terrified of Donald Trump.  He is popular, makes good sense, and now the lefts policies are failing in terrible fashion.  What their biggest fear is, is that Donald Trump will be elected once again, and he will start on the long haul to fix all that they have broken.  They look at him as their own personal “anti-Christ” who has the potential to roll back all the gains that they have made for the past ½ century.  They have to destroy him, one way or another.  They have been trying for about 6 years, and have come up with nothing.  They are banking of the January 6th Commission, and of course the raid they did on his Florida home for something, anything, that they can hang him with.  If they find nothing, what will be their next step?  Will they simply hire someone to do the unthinkable? 

Right now, we are not free.  The left wants to double the IRS auditor population to keep us in line.  They want to double down on the Green New Deal, and they want to hobble our manufacturing companies with regulations and taxes that will stifle growth and put us into economic malaise.  They want us to fail so that they can fundamentally transform us, and everything happening now with the economy has been pre-planned to achieve that goal.  The only real fly in their ointment is Donald J. Trump. 

They have over-reached.  What they are doing to DJT is putting his supporters into over-drive.  They are also with their overreach putting people on the fence, good people that are just waking up into his corner.  What used to be a question has now been answered.  DJT is running for President, and unless they do the “unthinkable” he will be the President in 2024.  He also will win converts with our young people, as they see their lives improve, and will re-start his promise to “drain the swamp”.  With luck, he will get much done, and Ron DeSantis can finish the work after Trump retires.  Yes, we have great hope, and yes, the left has become their own worst enemy!  God bless America, and God bless the Conservative movement!


Manchin and Schumer discussing “BUILD BACK BETTER”

Our inflation is largely caused by too much money chasing too few goods.  This was created by the Federal Governments spending habits, spending trillions of dollars on “Rescue Plans” that were not necessary, printing money to pay for them.  It is common sense to know that when such a large influx of money is injected into a recovering economy with supply chain issues, disastrous inflation will be the result. 

Our hero was Joe Manchin.  When Biden and the Democrats wanted to spend trillions more on the so called “Build Back Better” plan using reconciliation (requiring only 50% plus one votes for passage), Joe sensibly refused to go along, citing further inflationary fears.  For once, a Democrat that seemed to understand that spending money you do not have is a disastrous proposition.

I wake up this morning, finding out that my faith in Joe Manchin has now been forsaken!  It is reported that Chuck Schumer finally convinced Joe to support the paired down version of the “Build Back Better” plan, which not only will inject $350+ billion dollars into the already overheated economy.  The icing on the cake is that it will supposedly be paid for by massive tax increases on big business and high-income earners, supposedly to protect the middle class from any pain from this spending and taxing.  If you believe that, I have a bridge in Brooklyn I would like to sell you! 

$369 billion dollars will be set aside for supporting the “New Green Deal”, with subsidies for those that want to buy or produce electric cars, windmill and solar farm subsidies, and $64 billion for rescuing the Obamacare project that is currently on life support.  Supposedly the rest of the money being spent somehow will be targeted to “reducing the deficit”?  How stupid do these Democrats think we are?

If that were not enough, these same politicians just passed a $280 billion “Chip Deal”.  They are calling it the “CHIPS AND SCIENCE ACT OF 2022”, and it is in response to China’s increasing dominance in the chip making industry, which is critical to our overall economy as well as a clear and present threat to our national security, as our armed forces cannot operate unless they have unfettered access to microchips that are critical to equipment and weapons operations.

That almost makes sense, but the free market is already addressing this challenge, without government money or the strings attached to that money, which brings us to the big question about why this expense is actually needed!  Most Republicans and some Democrats actually have come out against this bill for those very reasons, but to no avail.

So here we are, in an environment where the Fed is shrinking money supply with big increase in interest rates to fight inflation.  Congress, with the approval of the President, is actually going in the opposite direction with over $700 billion in unneeded spending, thus negating the effects of the Feds war on the very inflation that is negatively affecting all of our lives.  It is amazing that our politicians, people that have never had real jobs, have no idea how our economy works!  Let’s vote these people out before they take us all down!


There has been a lot of talk, and angst on the left about banning abortions in Texas.  People are marching in the streets of major cities in Texas protesting the upcoming ban because of the SCOTUS decision to bring abortion back to the states, as it was a defective ruling 50 years ago, and indeed is not, and never has been a Constitutional right. 

Dallas protesters 06/26/2022

The left sees this as a travesty of justice, taking away a woman’s right to control her own body.  Narratives abound, including one that takes women to slavery as nothing more than baby machines.  There has even been talk by the Democrats in Washington D.C. to pack the Supreme Court in order to get their way with unfettered abortion. 

There is an elephant in the room that nearly no one sees!  That is the morning after pill and plan “B”.  Both are ways to eliminate pregnancy, with the morning after pill able to eliminate pregnancies within 72 hours of having sex, and plan “B”, which can work for an extended period of time, even after the zygote has penetrated and attached itself to the uterus.  Both systems use hormone imbalances to put additional mucous in the vaginal tract to stop sperm from entering to the fallopian tubes if fertilization has not yet happened, have the ability to stop an egg from dropping of it already has not, and thickens the uterus in order to reject implantation if fertilization has already happened.  It is interesting to note that in 2021, it is estimated that 53% of abortions in Texas were chemically induced.

Even after the trigger law goes into effect, the morning after pill is available to anyone that needs it without a prescription.  Just go to your local pharmacy and ask the pharmacist on duty for one.  He will gladly sell it to you legally without question.  For a whoopsie, this is an effective way to eliminate an unwanted pregnancy without surgery, and you can take the pill and do it in the privacy of your own home. 

Plan “B” varieties of chemical abortion works during pregnancy, and can work over an extended time.  The Texas legislature saw this as a loophole that needed to close, and sent a bill to Governor Abbot’s desk, and was signed into law.  In order to get this abortion drug in Texas, one has to go to their physician, pay for an examination to determine if they are over 7 weeks into their pregnancy, and if they are not, they will be given a prescription that either the doctor or one’s local pharmacy can fulfill.  The law states that a person cannot get this drug if it is determined by their doctor that the pregnancy is over the 7-week cut-off.  So all abortions are not illegal in Texas, and the only impediment for women will be their internal conversation with their Creator.

So, what is all the hoopla about anyway?  It seems that Democrats, looking at getting a royal shellacking this coming November, think they have finally found a way to hold onto the House and Senate.  They are playing the defeat of Roe VS Wade as an Armageddon for women’s rights in order to rile up their base enough to forget about the mess our country is in because of their own bad policy, and rise to the occasion to vote them back in on the promise of some future Federal legislation that will codify abortion forever in the USA. 

Those people in the streets are their base.  Far left activists, BLM, ANTIFA and other left leaning groups have taken the bait, and they are marching with the notion that abortion is now gone, and their only hope is the Democrat Party.  These useful idiots will not save the Democrats, but it is the only thin rescue line they can see for the foreseeable future, and they are grasping on it for their parties very life!   

Funny thing is, even in Texas women have access to chemical abortion.  Further, even though Texas outlaws it, mail order chemical abortion clinics will still be sending their pills to willing Texas women!  Once again, the Dems are betting on a new false narrative to take them over the finish line!  Good luck with that!


Joe promised us when campaigning for President that he would end our reliance on petroleum products.  He didn’t end our reliance, but he is in the process of strangling our petroleum industry and prices are skyrocketing.

Joe promised that he would “stop the virus in its tracks”.  He didn’t stop the virus, but he did lie to us so often that our faith in the CDC has been destroyed.

Joe promised us his spending bills would revive the economy.  Instead, we have high inflation and interest rates are rising fast.

Joe wants to fix inflation and high interest rates with his “BUILD BACK BETTER” bill, but that $5 Trillion plus spending plan would just devalue the dollar even more.

Joe promised to get us out of Afghanistan.  He turned what could have been an orderly withdrawal into a rout, and abandoned our Afghan allies to the Taliban.

Joe promised he would solve our supply chain problems.  Instead, he appointed Pete Buttigieg as Transportation Secretary, who knows nothing of logistics, and Pete then promptly took off 6 weeks in the middle of the crisis to attend his adopted babies. 

Joe decided to end the southern border crisis by stopping the border wall and ending all Trump era policies.  We now have a virtual invasion of illegal aliens on our southern border.

Joe has decided in the midst of the southern border crisis, to end the title 42 border policy soon, and now we are expecting the invasion to double in size.

Joe has decided since Elon Musk bought Twitter, that he needs Homeland Security to establish an “office of disinformation”, which will turn into a partisan disaster. 

Joe wants the Iran deal back in place, and is using Russian diplomats to negotiate for us.  These are from the same country that is invading Ukraine and considering it a war against the west.  I’m sure that will not go well.

Joe wants to send Ukraine $40 billion dollars in aid because they are being invaded by Russians, but cannot find a single dollar to stop the invasion happening on our Southern border. 

Joe wants the largest tax increase in history, and he is telling us that the increase will be good for people and good for business.  I doubt that will ever be true.

Joe wants to give up our medical sovereignty to the WHO, which would be the first step for One World Government.  I doubt that will pass muster with SCOTUS!

I could go on and on and on, but you get the point!  This Administration is a hot mess!  At every turn, bad decisions are made, expecting a positive conclusion that never happens.  This is a textbook definition of insanity.  Wrong way Joe is virtually taking us down the path to perdition, all the while telling us he has our best interests in mind.  But does he?

There is a silver lining.  His Administrations policies are so wretched they are pushing voters into a corner, where they have no where else to go but to punish the incumbent party, and that is surely going to happen.  Republicans will win big in November, taking over the House and the Senate by big numbers.  Problem is, will we be in WWIII before that happens?  Time will tell, but at least his most damaging desires for us will then be stymied for the remainder of his term.  

The Biden Administration is a Failure

The chances grow stronger each day that President Joe Biden will not run for re-election in 2024. We are sixteen months into the Biden Presidency, and it has become a failure of performance, competence and trust. It is equally certain that President Biden will not resign the presidency prior to the 2024 election, due to the fact that Vice President Kamala Harris, has proven that she is as unqualified for her position as Mr. Biden is for his. Together they engender absolutely no trust or confidence that they can effectively lead our nation during the challenging times in which we live. President Biden is cognitively diminished, and often unable to remain in sync with his aides and unable to remember what he said the previous day. Vice President Harris is in worse condition than the President, as she is a 57-year-old woman who conducts herself like an immature 7th grader.  If ever there was a glaring abyss of leadership on the national stage, it is this administration.

            President Biden was born in Scranton, Pa on November 20, 1942 and shortly thereafter his family relocated to New Castle, Delaware. President Biden earned a Law Degree from Syracuse University in 1968 and represented the state of Delaware in the United States Senate from 1973 to 2009. Prior to becoming Vice President to Barack Obama in 2009, President Biden made two unsuccessful runs for the Democratic Presidential nomination in 1988 and 2008. In the course of his political career President Biden has been known as a middle of the road Democrat, a consensus builder, able to work across the aisle and a strong supporter of labor unions. He was not considered to be a deep thinker or a technocrat, but rather a politician who was practical and who could work with others. He harbored a deep resentment for the energy industry and a strong interest in foreign affairs and unionization in both the government and private industry.

President Biden is cognitively diminished and unable to discharge the responsibilities of the Presidency.  His condition is unpleasant to observe because as human beings we have a natural empathy for one another. We are all old enough, and experienced enough, to have witnessed the traits President Biden is exhibiting in our grandparents, parents, friends, siblings and associates as they age. In these instances, we feel for them, and only hope that their decline is slow and painless, and that they feel the love and respect of those that are closest to them. It cannot be easy or pleasant for those who love and respect President Biden, to see him attempt to navigate through difficult conversations, to see him stare blankly into space, to see him angry and confused, to see him argue with a Gold Star parent  or to simply not really understand what is going on around him. The tasks and challenges in front of the current administration, most of which are of their own making, are simply beyond their capacity to manage and control.

As a nation we are in trouble both at home and on the world stage. This is as difficult a time as we have experienced since World War 2. The morale of our country is low, the Corona Virus and variances were mishandled and unexpected , our population is divided, we are in enormous debt, the cost of energy is at an all-time high, inflation is approaching 10%, our southern border has morphed into a factory manufacturing an infinite amount of undocumented immigrants and life threatening drugs, our large cities are struggling with growing crime rates, our supply chains remain in second gear, unfunded governmental spending is at historical levels and we are now funding a European war that never should have happened and against a nation that has 4500 nuclear warheads. And for the cherry on top of the sundae ,this administration has an energy policy for 2040 under the guise of the Paris Climate Accords but the one for 2022 seems to be to beg the Saudis, the Russians, the Venezuelans and of all people
the Iranians for security of necessary supply.

As a backdrop to all of our current difficulties China is lurking in the shadows, constantly evaluating the competence, intellect, resolve and performance of our leadership. They are so impressed that they have signed a major energy agreement with Russia, have held joint military training sessions with Russia, continue to be supportive of Russia on the world stage and have amped up their military and verbal harassment of Taiwan. At this point in history we need to clearly and coldly understand that China has vowed to assimilate Taiwan by any means necessary, and is also well on its way to achieving its longstanding goals of domination over the United States in the areas of GDP, trade, science and technology as well as global military power. Given the performance of our current administration, I am more than certain that China is intent upon closing the gaps between now and the end of Mr. Biden’s term.

Although President Biden and Vice President Harris are on the proverbial hot seat and have not performed well, I do not feel they should bear the full responsibility for the danger in which we find ourselves. They have a perfect right to share that responsibility with the Democrat Party/ DNC and a routinely dishonest and agenda driven national media, i.e., ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Chicago Tribune and The Los Angeles Times. All of these entities are complicit and have been instrumental in putting our nation in the situation where we now find ourselves.

The Democrat Party/DNC knew full well, and in more detail than anybody, the extent and struggles of Mr. Biden’s cognitive issues prior to his nomination. These same entities were fully versed, and aware of Ms. Harris” limitations regarding maturity, experience and work ethic. However, this did not deter them in the least. Their sole aim was to find two candidates that could win a single election. The fact that neither was in a position to govern or combat the issues of the day was not even considered. It was probably not even discussed or debated within the party. They simply hunkered down, hid then candidate Joe Biden in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware and kept the clock running on the campaign knowing that our corrupt and dishonest media would supply all the necessary cover. The safety of our country was never a concern for the Democrat Party.

In the upcoming November elections hold the Democrat Party/ DNC responsible for the condition our nation is in today. Vote out every single Democrat candidate from your local Mayor and City Council member to your Governor and on to your Congressional candidates. They are all part and parcel of our nation’s problems. Remember…. they did not care in the least that President Biden was in a cognitive decline, they did not care about the quality of governance that would follow and they did not care about you or your families. They simply wanted to win one single election at any cost.

Thirteen months ago, Joe Biden took the reigns as President of the United States.  One of the first things he did, was to kill our program of energy independence.  He also opened borders, ended the “stay in Mexico” program, and virtually every other program that President Trump put in place. At that same time, he identified Climate Change as the “existential threat”, even though over 50% of the world population could care less!  In essence, he did everything he could to make our country weaker!  Biden’s first day in office.

Fast forward to today. We are now, instead of being a net exporter of oil and gas as we were with Trump’s energy policy, instead are importing 500,000 barrels a day of oil from Russia. Europe imports 40% of their natural gas needs from Russia.  Russia is on the path to re-create the Soviet Empire.  There is an excellent chance that not only will we not be getting additional oil supplies from Russia, but that Europe will be held hostage by Russia, turning off their natural gas supplies.  This is coming for certain since economic sanctions are right now being imposed on Russia.  They will not ship if they cannot get paid. 

To counter the dearth of hydrocarbon supplies in the free world, we need to open up our reserves for drilling and fracking.  We have the energy supplies to do so and can in time replace the lost imports that Europe was buying from Russia, but that effort needs to start in haste!  It will take time to bring new oil and gas fields into the marketplace, and every day we wait means it will take that much longer!  In the meantime, we need to lobby other national suppliers to increase their exports, and that needs to be pressed with great urgency!  The Biden administration is not even mentioning the thought that we can make a difference with our reserves, and as of now is just making lip service to lobbying other countries like the Saudis for additional supplies.  The need is urgent in order to keep a unified effort against Russia’s imperialist threat to world order, but without the energy to keep their economies in order, NATO will have a hard time keeping a unified front. United States holds the most recoverable gas and oil than anywhere in the world.

Ukraine is now effectively gone.  Russia has invaded, and next on their list will be the Baltic states and Poland.  We have repositioned some troops to those areas, but to be a deterrent, we need a massive build up of force to ensure that Putin will not consider invasion.  Further, NATO countries need to live up to what they are supposed to invest in their own defense.  2% of their GDP is what they all have agreed to as the bottom line for military investment, and so far, very few of those countries have lived up to that agreement.  NATO has been freeloading on our military for a long time, and now is when it is critical that they start investing in their own protection.  Biden has not reached out to those countries to live up to their commitment as Trump had done, but now is the time to do so.

With all this happening, the main thrust for the Biden administration is economic sanctions against Russia.  That may inflict some pain, but it will also cement the relationship Putin has with Xi, who is in control of the second largest economy in the world.  China has the power to blunt much of the pain inflicted by our sanctions.  Xi also has imperialist notions, and most likely will be moving against Taiwan in the next weeks.  We should be sending an additional Carrier battle group to the South China sea to supplant the 2 battle groups we already have there as a message to Xi that we are watching closely, along with 3 more LPD’s with surge capacities of 800 marines each to supplant the one their already.  Nothing is coming from the White House that indicates any additional action is being considered.

The world order is falling apart because of weak leadership.  It is not only President Biden that is the cause, but it is the weakness of NATO, and the weakness of the Westernized Countries in general.  This overall weakness inspires tyrants to do what was previously unthinkable.  If good men do nothing, tyrants will endeavor to do their worst.  Right now, all of us in Western Civilization need to consider thoughtfully what our next steps should be. 

What to do?

  1.  Open up our gas and oil reserves, and cut unneeded regulations in order to ensure ample supply for the USA and our allies, especially NATO members.
  2. Increase Liquified Natural Gas ports in the USA and with our allies.  This should be done in a state of emergency.
  3. Have an emergency NATO meeting, getting all on board with understanding they have to live up to their defense commitments.
  4. Reinforce Baltic states and Poland with 100,000 additional troops and equipment from USA bases to send a message to Vladimir Putin that we are serious about our commitment to NATO.
  5. Send additional Naval Forces to the South China sea to send a definitive message to China and Xi. 
  6. Shoring up our allies in Asia to ensure that we can leverage strength against Chinese intrusions.

Will Biden do any of this?  Probably not!  It would go against the Progressive Socialist wing of his party, and he does not want to alienate them! Weakness personified!


Ronald “Dutch” Reagan was born February 6th, 1911.  He was raised mostly in small Illinois towns with his father, an Irish American itinerate shoe salesman and his mother, a strong and religious Scottish American whose influence was a deciding factor in his upbringing. 

From humble beginnings he ascended to greatness.  He worked his way through college, graduated without honors, and began a career as a radio sportscaster.  Eventually he found his way to Hollywood and stumbled onto an acting career.  That lead to the beginnings of his political career, being elected 6 times as President of the Screen Actors Guild.  He changed political parties in 1962, moving his allegiance from the Democrats to the Republican Party, famously saying “I didn’t leave the Democratic Party, they left me.”

His foray into National Politics started with his famous campaign speech for Barry Goldwater, “A Time for Choosing”, which typified his belief system throughout the rest of his life.  “  The Founding Fathers knew a government can’t control the economy without controlling people. And they knew when a government sets out to do that, it must use force and coercion to achieve its purpose. So we have come to a time for choosing … You and I are told we must choose between a left or right, but I suggest there is no such thing as a left or right. There is only an up or down. Up to man’s age-old dream—the maximum of individual freedom consistent with order—or down to the ant heap of totalitarianism.”

From there he became a 2-term California Governor, and then a 2-term President.  As President, and against the advice of his adversaries in the Democratic Party, he cut taxes, re-invigorated a stagnant post Jimmy Carter economy, rebuilt the military, and won the Cold War with the Soviet Union, eventually dismantling it using its own arcane policies against itself.

This remarkable man truly did live the American Dream, and through the strength of his character and his unyielding drive to govern with his ideals, all of us are better for it!
