Bring back Ellis Island the isle of vetting.

Bring Back Ellis Island
50% of Federal criminal prosecutions are for illegal Aliens for such crimes as:
• Murders
• Drug dealings
• Human trafficking
• Rapes
• Child Molestation’s
• Burglary’s
• Child Pornography
• Armed robberies
• Assaults
• Grand Larceny Auto
• Weapons charges
Many countries are releasing their criminal populations so they don’t have to pay for them and deal with their criminal activities as Fidel Castro did in Cuba with the Mariel Boat Armada. Many of these Cuban refugees had been released from jails and mental health facilities in Cuba into our populations. Are we stupid to allow this whenever anyone wants to come here at our expense financially and diminishing the quality of our lives?
Wake up America. Bring back Ellis Island so we can bring in good people in an intelligent and reasonable way. We need to welcome immigrants but in on our terms. We have a system so why don’t we use it and take in the ones who applied first. How many of us like people jumping the line? We have been in the midst of an invasion for years perhaps decades. We are in the middle of a major crime spike and all our politicians say at their news conference is:”that’s terrible, we won’t tolerate it”, but their actions are worthless.
I am tired of seeing the news with the heading “Breaking News”
The cost to Americans for prisons, transportation, housing, food, clothes, processing them through the justice system (more judges, court reporters, court officers, cooks, clerks, etc) clerical costs, customs officers, I.C.E., Marshals, and prison guards is in the billions of dollars. That’s your hard earned tax dollars. To administer health care and everything else is close to $100,000 dollars per prisoner. Don’t forget if moms are in jail then we have to support their kids and those who care for them.
Eventually most of the prisoners will be released into the general population many with no skills and they will again commit more crimes and inflict pain on the American people .The recidivist rate is about 70% which means they will eventually go back to prison again. And once more we will pay.
These illegal invaders of which most are,(some are very legitimate) enter this country with the help of the drug cartels, mules, our President and elected officials They don’t pay a dime to us but they pay the drug cartels and mules $6,000 + to get across the border. Then they get some fresh clothes, a hot meal, shower, toiletries, some travel cash and a free cell phone. And then they are on their way to a neighborhood near you without getting your permission.
Most of us pay for health insurance, deductibles and co pay’s not to mention all the other things required to live. For them it’s like winning the lottery. Keep in mind that their annual wages are around $2,000 – $2,500 a year in Guatemala, $4,000 a year in El Salvador, and $2,500 a year in Honduras. So when we hand them a package of goods and services worth over $100,000 that will continue for who knows how long, they are racing to our borders. They are literally striking it rich on our dime.
Some are legitimate but we don’t vet them, do security checks or check their health status. So we don’t know. Do they test them for diseases? Any illegal in their right mind will seek asylum saying we are victims of crimes, political and religious persecution or whatever their trainers teach them to say. The cartels charge around $6,000 and more per head. If you multiply that by 200,000 entries a month, that’s 1 billion two hundred million a month to the cartels. That’s food that feeds the drug trade and the cartels who handle it.
The 200,000 people are those that we catch but how many slip through the system, so the numbers are higher. In essence if you connect the dots we the United States of America are subsidizing the cartels and the drug trade thereby killing 100,000 plus Americans of our own annually. The government is a co-conspirator and acting in concert with the cartels like organized crime. That’s a “RICO” violation. Passed in 1970, AKA “the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations” Act.
To violate “RICO”, a person must engage in a pattern of racketeering activity connected to an enterprise. The law defines 35 offenses as constituting racketeering, including gambling, murder, kidnapping, drug dealing, bribery, foreign commerce, robbery, dealing in obscene matter, theft, fraud, obstruction of justice, slavery, money laundering. Human smuggling, acts of terrorism and others. It’s already been documented that people on the U.S.A. terrorist watch list have been caught but then there are those that have not been caught. What happened to the words “Remember 911?”
There is only one way to accept foreigners and that is by vetting them, checking their backgrounds and they should get at the back of the line and wait their turn like all the others who want to come to America. Bring back Ellis Island.
The deadly drug fentanyl kills over 100,000 Americans a year mostly under 40 years old.90 percent of it comes from China across the southern border. If you like to kill Americans then don’t finish the wall.
The completion of the wall on the southern border will lower the amount of drugs entering our country and lower the number of deaths and crime that is caused by these drugs. We must secure the Southern border and restore law and order for and to Americans. You might even get a hospital bed a little earlier if less people invade our emergency rooms.
Israel built a wall and eliminated 99 % of the crime and carnage that came from the other side. If walls don’t work then why does Nancy Pelosi want one around her house as does the Clinton’s and Obama’s? Why do sporting arenas have walls; to control who come in? The same for prisons, computers, houses and the like.
Common sense must be the policy of our political leaders. Pick your politicians by what they say and do and not whether you like them or not. There are not too many likable politicians these days.
We all want to feel and be safe but our leaders in Washington D.C. are not listening
Bring back Ellis Island

Mid-term elections fall of 2022 will determine if Americans are coming together

One of the major problems today is that people don’t respect each other’s right to “agree to disagree”. Freedom of speech is at stake. 1st amendment rights are being desecrated and trampled on by our friends, family, institutions of government and others. Can you listen with tolerance and patience without hating if you can’t have a meeting of the minds? This is a big problem in America.

As Abraham Lincoln said as he tried to bring the country together after the Civil War which was not civil at all. “With malice toward none with charity for all” spoken in his second inaugural address for his second term as president.

He wanted to bring the country together after the worst war in American history where it is estimated that over 600,000- 800,000 Union and Confederate soldiers died for their beliefs.

Righteousness prevailed and freed the slaves. The 2022 mid-term elections in the fall will see if we as a nation are coming together. Less than 4 months away.

Is white supremacy the biggest threat to America ?

President Joe Biden said that the biggest threat to America is white supremacy. He says it all the time but he never backs it up with Department of Justice statistics.He has been to the inner cities of our country where minorities are murdering each other in extremely large numbers? Cities like Chicago, Detroit, Philadelphia, Baltimore, N.Y., L.A. and mostly blue cities (democrat cities) run by left wing leaders with no common sense with “no bail” laws for recidivists who keep on committing felonies over and over again after they are released without bail and most never return to court until they are caught another time committing another crime and then released again. President Biden as he always says “Folks I know the deal” He does but why doesn’t he do something about it or at least talk about it.

Has the President not been aware of the numbers of Americans being killed by fentanyl coming from China, 90 percent transported through the southern border killing 100,000 plus black, white and brown Americans a year yet the press and the government never talk about it. Don’t those black lives matter? Or only when a black person is shot by a white cop.

What about black families where 70% of the fathers are missing from the home and mothers are either married to the government or out there working hard to make a living to support their families by themselves?

Our leaders don’t care about the destruction and death of our minority brothers and sisters in the minority communities inundated by crime mostly due to the sale and distribution of drugs like fentanyl. Young men trying to make money with no father figures to guide them in the right direction. These mostly young men are defending their drug territories and in the process killing each other.

When you hear the cry of white supremacy by political leaders like President Biden that this is America’s biggest problem, they never give statistics from the Department of Justice, the FBI or the U.S. Attorneys’ office. Why? Because white supremacy is a small problem, they know it and these lies are to distract the minority communities from the real problems and try and draw them to vote for Democrats.

Close the border, reduce the flow of drugs and the killings will go down dramatically. Keep the border open and you have “Pandora’s box”. Black leadership is not doing anything to save the lives of their young black brothers and sisters. The press rarely talks about it. And “the beat goes on”. Can we say black lives don’t matter unless you are killed by a white cop?

Meeting on Abortion & Reproductive Rights – June 22

Updated:  June 24, 2022.  In a 6-3 decision, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization overruled Roe and Casey.  Opinion of the Supreme Court 19-1392.

Ameer Benno presented the case’s background at the June 22 club meeting.

Roe v. Wade: 410 US 113 (1973)
• In a 7-2 decision, the Supreme Court ruled that the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment provides a “right to privacy” that protects a pregnant woman’s right to choose whether or not to have an abortion.
• It also ruled that this right is not absolute, and must be balanced against the government’s interests in protecting women’s health and prenatal life.
• The court tied the state’s regulation of abortion to the three trimesters of pregnancy; during the first trimester, governments could not prohibit abortions at all.
• The Court defined the right to an abortion as “fundamental,” which require courts to evaluate challenged abortion laws under the “strict scrutiny” standard.

Planned Parenthood v. Casey: 505 US 833 (1992)
• Upheld the “essential holding” of Roe – the constitutional right to have an abortion
• Overturned the Roe trimester framework in favor of a viability analysis
• The Court also replaced the “strict scrutiny” standard of review required by Roe with the “undue burden” standard under which abortion restrictions would be unconstitutional if enacted for “the purpose or effect of placing a substantial obstacle in the path of a woman seeking an abortion of a nonviable fetus.”

Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization (2022)
Three Questions Presented in Certiorari Petition before the Supreme Court:

  1. Are all pre-viability prohibitions on elective abortions unconstitutional?  SCOTUS considers only this question on May 17, 2021.
  2. Whether the validity of a pre-viability prohibition should be analyzed under Casey’s “undue burden” standard or under Hellerstedt’s balancing of benefits and burdens?
  3. Do abortion providers have a legal right to challenge laws that ban or restrict abortions on behalf of their patients (third-party standing)?

Constitutional Arguments

  • Casey did not embrace Roe’s reasoning – it based the abortion right on “the liberty this Court has afforded to certain personal decisions.”
  • But a right to abortion is not a “liberty” that enjoys protection under the Due Process Clause.  That Clause “specially protects those fundamental rights and liberties which are, objectively, deeply rooted in this Nation’s history and tradition, and implicit in the concept of ordered liberty, such that neither liberty nor justice would exist if they were sacrificed.”
  • “History does not show a deeply rooted right to abortion.  Rather, history shows a long tradition – up to, at, and long after ratification of the Fourteenth Amendment – of States restricting abortion.  At the end of 1849, 10 of the 30 States had statutes restricting abortion; by the end of 1864, 27 of the 36 States had them; and, at the end of 1868, the year the Fourteen Amendment was ratified, 30 of the 37 States had such laws, as did 6 Territories.”
  • “And when Roe v. Wade was decided [in 1973], most States had restricted abortions for at least a century.”

Government’s Interest (Dobbs)

  • Protecting the Life of the Unborn.  “At 5-6 weeks’ gestation, an unborn human being’s heart begins beating.  At about 8 weeks’ gestation, all basic physiological functions are present, as are teeth, eyes, and external genitalia.  At 10 weeks, vital organs begin to function and “hair, fingernails, and toenails begin to form.  At 11 weeks, an unborn human being’s diaphragm is developing, and he or she may even hiccup.  At 12 weeks’ gestation, he or she can open and close fingers, starts to make sucking motions, and senses stimulation from the world outside the womb.  He or she has taken on the human form in all relevant respects.”
  • Protecting the Medical Profession.  “Most abortion procedures performed after 15 weeks’ gestation, the Legislature found, are dilation-and-evacuation procedures that involve the use of surgical instruments to crush and tear the unborn child apart before removing the pieces of the dead child from the womb.  The Legislature found that this is a barbaric practice when performed for nontherapeutic reasons and is demeaning to the medical profession.”
  • Protecting the Health of the Women.  “Dilation-and-evacuation abortions risk ‘(m)edical complications.’  These include: pelvic infection; incomplete abortions (retained tissue); blood clots; heavy bleeding or hemorrhages; laceration, tear, or other injury to the cervix; puncture, laceration, tear, or other injury to the uterus; injury to the bowel or bladder; depression; anxiety; substance abuse; and other emotional or psychological problems.”
  • The “United States is one of few countries that permit elective abortions after 20 weeks’ gestation.”
  • “After 12 weeks’ gestation, 75% of all nations “do not permit abortion except (in most instances) to save the life and to preserve the physical health of the mother.”
  • “If a State’s interests are compelling enough after viability to support a prohibition, they are equally compelling before then.”

Respondent’s Arguments (Jackson Women’s Health Organization)

  • Viability is a “clear” line, which helps ensure that an individual’s right to “retain the ultimate control over her destiny and her body” is not “extinguished.”
  • Nothing “ha(s) rendered viability more or less appropriate as the point at which the balance of interest tips.  This is so regardless of ongoing medical advances, of which the Court was well aware in Casey.”
  • “Far from being arbitrary, unsatisfactory, or a moving target as Mississippi asserts, the viability line has proved enduringly workable, representing as it does a simple limitation beyond which a state law is unenforceable.”
  • “Viability has not moved – and instead has remained the same – since 1992, when this Court decided Casey.  At that time, the Court noted that viability in a normally progressing pregnancy occurred at approximately 23 to 24 weeks, and that is where it remains today.

Cathy Donohoe.  “New York should stop presenting abortion as the best and only option for struggling women and harassing any pro-life pregnancy center that may help women keep their babies.

The signing comes after both houses of legislature passed bills strengthening not only the right to abortion care in the state, but transgender care for patients.

The six bills passed by the legislature include:

• Protecting medical professionals from misconduct charges for providing legal abortions.
• Prevaenting extradition of defendant in abortion related cases if they’re charged in another state
• Protected the address information of employees and volunteers working with abortion providers
• Creating a task force to study the impact of “limited-service pregnancy centers”

In May, Hochul and state Democrats doubled down their efforts on abortion rights after the controversial leak of a document from the Supreme Court on the Roe v. Wade decision.  Hochul pledged that the state would invest $35 million to support abortion providers across New York while New York Attorney General Letitia James pushed for $50 million for a Reproductive Freedom and Equity Program, a total of $85 million, both to be funded through state health department grants.

‘The women of New York will never be subjugated to government-mandated pregnancies,” Gov. Hochul said, “because that’s what will ensure if Roe v. Wade is overturned by the Supreme Court.'”

Alice Lemos of Jewish Pro-Life Foundation.  I have been a member of the Board of the Jewish Pro Life Foundation for approximately a year and a half.  Our mission is to enlighten the world and our fellow Jews with the fact that Judaism is the original pro-life religion and, in fact, that Christianity and Islam obtain their pro-life views from Judaism – certainly not from the surrounding pagan cultures which practiced child sacrifice.   In fact, the Roman historian Tacitus condemned Jews and Christians because they would not sacrifice their children.  He wrote:  “They learn to despise the gods. . . and see to it that their numbers increase.  It is a deadly sin to kill an unwanted child, and they think that eternal life is granted to those who die in battle or execution – hence their eagerness to have children, and their contempt for death. . . the Jewish religion is a purely spiritual monotheism.”  Note Tacitus’ contempt for the Jews for their refusal to practice infanticide or to kill sickly babies which the Romans and Greeks did freely.  What is partial or late-term abortion except the modern version of infanticide?  And let us not forget the destruction of the Downs Syndrome population in the USA and abroad- about 80% of Downs Syndrome babies are aborted – thanks to the push for genetic testing and the search for the “perfect” baby – which is a form of eugenics.  Unfortunately, Charles Schumer, a new grandfather, who was born Jewish, is an avid supporter of infanticide.  Let us hope that he reflects on the preciousness of life as he looks at his new granddaughter. (I was, to put it mildly, horrified when I heard the late Rabbi Balfour Brickner defend partial birth abortion on the O’Reilly Factor over twenty years ago.  When I confronted him over the phone, he was less than gracious.)

It is thus doubly tragic – given our dwindling numbers – that mainstream Jewish organizations including the ADL, Hadassah and even Hillel, have devoted themselves to the pro-abortion cause.  The ADL and the detestable National Council of Jewish Women have submitted briefs in opposition to overturning Roe.  My organization submitted a brief in favor of overturning Roe.  We have to ask ourselves what has happened to mainstream Jewish organizations that would have them turn Judaism, the original pro-life religion,  on its head and declare that abortion is a “Jewish right” – putting themselves at odds with the Torah and at odds with what true liberalism is:  the defense of the defenseless.  It is also puts them in the same category as Satanists.  Satanism is another “religion” which considers abortion to be religious right.

Radical leftwing groups have taken over what used to be the fine ADL. Under the leadership of Jonathan Greenblatt, the goal of the ADL-  which used to be to defend Jews from anti-Semitism – is to defend against so-called extremism and to promote the Democrat party.  Per Greenblatt, the only extremists are Republicans.  Greenblatt totally ignores the hatred coming from the Squad and even the mainstreaming of anti-Semitism in the Democrat party.  In the next election cycle it is entirely possible that NYC will not have a single Jewish member in congress.  I mention the radicalization of the Democrat party – most American Jews remain Democrats – because its most sacred platform is its extreme push for abortion rights for anyone at any time for any reason.

The National Council of Jewish women routinely defends anti-Semites such as Linda Sarsour. In fact, there is nothing “Jewish” about this group. Its founder, Hannah G. Solomon, was a Stalinist.  This group hides behind the canard that “abortion is a Jewish value” basing this on an obscure passage in Exodus (21:22-25) regarding the punishment for a man who causes a woman to miscarry.  This is the same group that pushes for gay and transgender rights while ignoring Leviticus an its dictates against sodomy. In order words, it cherry picks from the Torah which values to defend.   Any value which does not conform to its lefty extremism is ignored.

Let us also not forget that the abortion pill was originally created by the Nazis who enjoyed torturing pregnant Jewish women.  Among the earliest victims of the Nazi regime were the disabled – all in the name of “compassion” of course.  The war that is being conducted on sick babies is an extension of this.  Again, in the name of “compassion”.  We need disability rights organizations to denounce the aborting of sick babies or babies with a poor diagnosis.

Recently, I read an article in AISH about a Jewish woman in Israel who claimed to be Orthodox and who decided to abort a baby whom the doctor had declared would have  “serious problems” – the exact problems never spelled out in the article. Her wimpy husband tells her that it is “her decision”. I found it interesting that the woman involved stated that “she would have dreaded going to the hospital to wait upon surgery for the baby” – showing what a self-centered narcissist she is.  This is the mind of a self-entitled woman who believes she is entitled to a perfect life with a perfect child.  Recently, on another AISH talk, I heard a woman who claimed to be religious state that women need the right to an abortion because of the infant formula shortage and because “child care is expensive”.  I agree that child care is expensive.  But killing babies in the womb does not bring down the cost of child care and it does not miraculously produce baby formula.  These are two examples of supposedly religious women giving in to secular selfishness and preening narcissism.

Online in a chat room for flamenco fans, one woman had the nerve to write that “You can’t be Jewish and pro-life” because of her misinterpretation of Exodus.  My response?  Norm Coleman and Lee Zeldin manage to be pro-life.  I blocked her and the others who were Catholic-bashing and attacking pro-life Jews as they are incapable of reasoned discourse and debate.  This is the same crowd that refers to babies as “parasites” language that the Nazis employed for people whom they deemed “undesirable”.  Another woman, a “rabbi” called her own abortion “sacred” and had the audacity to go to a mikva after she had taken her abortion pills.  Obviously a rabbi or religious leader should not be engaging in premarital sex.  Of course, there is no mention of the baby’s father since men have been made irrelevant thanks to decades of Roe.

There is a group called Jexidus whose goal is to encourage American Jews to leave the Democrat party.  I am hoping that those who leave – and they have had much success in Florida- will also embrace the pro-life plank of the Republican party as the Democrat Party has turned its back on pro-lifers.   Let us continue to promote a culture that welcomes children and makes it easier for women to give birth.  A society that does not value the lives of its babies is a society that will slowly rot from within.  People who seek to destroy a great religion by misrepresenting it play to the anti-Semites in the crowd.

Carol Sanger of Columbia University was invited, but did not respond.

The Destruction of the Wealth of the Middle Class with a Stroke of a Pen.

The first day in office of President Biden’s presidency led to the destruction of wealth of the middle class of Americans and that of the world. He reversed Trumps executive orders on his first day. That was the beginning of the end. And now we are in a mess.
Biden took the oath of office and immediately began dismantling everything President Trump did, regardless of the potential harm to the American people. As a result, prices on just about everything have risen every month of the Biden presidency. Biden had countless opportunities to turn back from his anti-Trump strategy and re-institute successful policies, but he refused to. I think he made a deal with the devil: China and Russia. Everything he does seems to benefit other countries who are our enemies. In a sense we are financing the Russian war against the Ukraine by buying oil from Russia and making western and Eastern Europe dependent on Russian oil. Billions pouring into Putin’s coffers.
We were a net exporter of energy and were able to sell oil and make some extra money at the same time lowering our balance of trade deficit and keeping the cost of manufacturing, goods and services as well as transportation cost s down.
On Biden’s first day in office he gave everyone in the country a pay decrease and a tax increase by shutting down our fossil fuel industry which is cleaner than any other producer in the world due to our strict standards. When he ran for office he said we will raise taxes, we will fight dirty air and end fossil fuel. When he did that he did not have enough clean energy to replace fossil fuel. We had 3 percent of wind energy and 11 percent of solar energy available. He turns off the lights and all we have is a candle and some flashlights.

He was pandering to the progressives and the left as they promised to support him if he pursued their agenda. Notice you don’t hear too much from them. The beginning of inflation reared its head at that moment and never stopped. Can’t blame it on Covid. Covid was around and gas prices were down. Can’t blame it on the war in the Ukraine, costs were already climbing when the war began. Who can we blame? Do you stop growing crops when you don’t have enough to eat? Do you turn off the lights when you don’t have a flashlight? Do you get into a boat and pull the plug? Etc everything this man does seems to benefit our enemies and not our countryman. Does anyone have “buyer’s remorse”? Meaning they are sorry they voted for him. The polls tell the story. Yes Hispanics are crossing over, as well as Blacks and some Jews. The disappointing poll was when I heard the Jews were disappointed with Biden and their favor-ability poll dropped to 63 %. It should have dropped to below 40%.

It’s not too late to reverse the burdening load on Americans by Biden reversing his executive orders especially on the fossil fuel industry and regulations. When Biden ran for office his wife said America needs Joe. Joe said we need an adult in the room. The democrats under Hillary, the progressives, and the left said that Trump was working with the Russians when in fact it was discovered that Hillary and her group were the real ones working with the Russians to undermine Trumps Presidency.

With all that Trump had facing against him from the day he came down the escalator with Melania at Trump Tower till today, from the enemy within, the Rhinos, the DOJ, U.S. attorney , the Muller commission the impeachments, the media (in essence an arm of the Democrat party), the Hollywood elite and liberals, being shut down from Twitter, being attacked by CNN, MSNBC, ABC CBS,NBC, Mark Zuckerberg, Jeff Bezos, Face book, George Soros, The Washington Post , the NY Times, Corporate America , Every liberal Governor and Mayor in America, every lie and hyperbole, every investigation and raid against his allies . the removing of Ruddy Juliani’s law license because he was an ally of Trump , the endless prosecutions of his associates for process crimes .It still goes on today.

Yet Trump somehow was able to get so many things done for minorities, Whites, Asians, everyone.
He brought to light that Washington D. C. is if not the most corrupt place in the world it is one of them .We learned that there is a swamp, there is a deep state, there are two standards of Justice , One for Democrats and another for the rest of us. He was an outsider, a business man and they feared he would uncover the deep state like never before. They saw Trump as a threat to a good old boys club where everyone got a piece of the pie, insider trading, can lie without retribution, got all kinds of perks from corporate America, from lobbyist of corporate America and special interest groups.
They feared him because he had nothing to lose. He didn’t need Washington money, he ran for many reasons, for his legacy, his ego, but more importantly to make America great again. He was an outsider who knew what was going on on in the inside because he gave money to both parties and w as privy to what goes on behind the public’s eye. .

To many he wasn’t likable. He was a womanizer, a brash and arrogant male with a big ego, a show off, and offended many. And even had many hate him. Yet he won the 2016 election. Somehow they preferred him to Hillary.

Too many people are too busy trying to keep their heads above water , going to work , shopping , taking care of the family and themselves and don’t have too much time to understand everything and connect the dots.
He told us what he was going to do so he kept his promise. But too many hated Trump so much that they voted for Biden rather than take a chance with him. Biden says the greatest threat to America is white supremacy. Then he said it is the MAGA people and the King of MAGA which is the greatest threat to America.

He makes one mistake after another and Nancy Pelosi said in an interview, “Joe is Perfect” For who? Not America. He is perfect for China, Iran, Russia, Venezuela, Cuba and others. He is making Americans poor. So when he says MAGA is the biggest threat to America than I say Joe is the biggest threat to America.

Well now we were helping Russia pay for the war against Ukraine. Russia was making billions on our war against American fossil fuel. We were making Russia, Iran, OPEC, Venezuela, and Ecuador by reducing the supply and causing prices to rise from $2 gallon of regular to close to $5 a gallon. And truckers need diesel fuel which is even more expensive.

So we voted for higher energy prices, higher taxes, less national security, the right to buy things at a higher price which is basically a pay cut. They say inflation is 8 percent. Every business from food, restaurants, hard goods, like autos, refrigerators, had to raise their prices.

At this point, all I can assume is that it’s intentional. Biden is intentionally destroying the American way of life in an attempt to force a radical shift to Green New Deal policies that will overturn nearly every aspect of our lives.

The Biden administration is taking a page out of Obama’s book: never waste a crisis. While the American people suffer under record-high gas prices, the Biden Administration tells us the solution is to buy an electric vehicle — at an average price of $55,000. Instead of unlocking domestic energy production, they want to begin a long, expensive and unnecessary transition to the Green New Deal.

Biden is looking everywhere but his own backyard for new energy sources. He hasn’t even acknowledged Nicolas Maduro as the legitimate president of Venezuela, but he may lift sanctions on Venezuela to access their oil. An Iran nuclear deal is back on the table in pursuit of oil from the Middle East. The answer isn’t with dictators and autocrats, it’s in Oklahoma. It’s in Texas, Louisiana, West Virginia, North Dakota, Alaska, Pennsylvania, and many more states who are ready to step up to the plate to provide the energy the world needs.

Under President Trump, domestic oil production peaked. The United States was on track to be a net exporter of crude oil for the first time since Tulsa was the oil capitol of the world a century ago.

Much of the world gets their energy from the planet’s worst dictators and human rights violators. Our allies are reliant on oil from Russia and OPEC nations, just like we are. Russia gets about $700 million a day from oil sales to the U.S. and Europe combined. An energy-dominant United States not only helps Americans, but our allies around the globe. When the U.S. is a net exporter of crude oil, the whole world prospers.

Without a stable domestic energy supply, we are dependent on foreign oil. Putin has no incentive to alleviate oil pressures while under sanctions from the U.S. and other NATO nations. Neither Putin nor OPEC made any effort to lower gas prices by increasing output.

Under Biden, energy independence is gone, and energy dominance will remain a pipe dream. On Day 1, Biden ended the Keystone XL Pipeline, halted leasing on federal lands for oil and gas productions, and levied heavy restrictions on domestic oil producers, making it harder to produce oil in America. This abrupt switch caused widespread uncertainty and disruption in the domestic oil market, limiting our ability to produce oil in the U.S. and forcing dependence on foreign nations to power our country.

How much longer are we expected to stand by while Biden intentionally destroys our country?

I know my colleagues across the aisle are concerned about rising costs. Their constituents are mad about it, just like mine. If Democrats were willing to look inward, they’d connect the dots on cause and effect, but they refuse to accept that their policies are the root cause of our current problems, and they refuse to hold their president accountable.

After over a year of failed policies, you and I and everyone outside of Congress has connected the dots. We know where these problems originated — and it’s not Ukraine.

Diversity and inclusion = elimination of white people from their jobs and being replaced by minorities

Some of the things the media won’t and don’t talk about and more . Scandalous!

Some of the things the media doesn’t talk about and more. Scandalous!

Rev 6/21/22

President Barack Hussein Obama said and I quote “Don’t underestimate Joe’s ability to f… things up.”

Now lets see where we stand under Joe’s leadership with the help of the Media. Here is a list of things that are hardly or not discussed at all in order to bolster the President of the United States, hide his mistakes and bring down his opponents.

• Space Force: What has been accomplished under this new military force called “Space Force created by President Donald J. Trump. Can anybody tell us what is going on in space when China is moving quickly. Derelict is the media and the White House press Secretary Karine Jean- Pierre. They say nothing while China is out performing us in this area. American security last, enemies security first.

• Why has President Joe Biden suspended the defense anti-missile space program with our new military armed force called “Space Force” created by President Donald J. Trump, while China is aggressively moving forward with their anti missile space program that can knock our satellites out of the sky and shut down our country when the USA is not doing the same. Don’t we want the same security to protect our communications and intelligence satellites. What am I missing .Can somebody “Connect the Dots” please. I don’t get it.

• Why is it that the January 6th committee is composed of all Trump haters including 2 Republicans? Will we get a fair assessment of what really happened by these Capital building trespassers and intruders who entered the Capital building and what the actual damages were especially when they were not carrying any weapons.

• Why is it that the January 6th Capitol trespassers did not get a fast and speedy trial and were not arraigned under the Federal guidelines of 72 hours and the trial has to begin within 70 days.

• Why does the January 6th committee call it an insurrection when an insurrection is an organized rising or rebellion of citizens against the government manifested by acts of violence s and use of weapons. No weapons were found and a small amount of violence was indicated.

• Why did Capitol policeman Lt. Michael Byrd shoot in the back and kill Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt during the Capitol riot on Jan 6. When she was climbing through a window to enter the Capitol building. The rules of engagement clearly state deadly force is appropriate if there is eminent danger that your life is in danger. Babbitt had her back to Lt Byrd, had no weapons and was not given a warning. Lt Byrd over reacted and killed a unarmed woman who was climbing through a window with no way of hurting Lt Byrd yet he was found not guilty of a crime and was given an award for his killing of Ashli Babbitt an unarmed trespasser . What am I missing Please help me connect the dots.

• The timing for arraignment constrained by the U.S. Constitution under the 6th Amendment ; Federal law enforcement cannot arrest and hold someone for an unreasonable or extended period of time typically 72 hours after an arrest . So why are some of these intruders and trespassers being held in solitary confinement and many are imprisoned over a year? If they were Nancy’s or Joes trespassers they would have been released within 36 hours with no bail. And probably had the charges dropped

• Why didn’t Nancy who is the head of security as Speaker of the House not take Presidents Trumps offer of up to 20,000 National Guards troops to protect the Capitol building when he was apprised of a large crowd coming to Washington D.C. If President Trump is guilty of inciting an insurrection why did he try and secure the Capitol building. And was turned down on all levels.

• Why didn’t the Mayor Washington D.C.Muriel Bowser accept Trumps offer of help. Did she conspire to incite an insurrection along with Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and others.

• Why didn’t the Capitol police get their request for help answered. Everyone knew help was needed yet denied by the Democrats in power. Were they setting up President Trump for failure.

• Why was it called an “insurrection” when the definition is an organized rising or rebellion of citizens against the government manifested by acts of violence s and use of weapons. No weapons were found and a small amount of violence was indicated. It was mostly misdemeanor and felony trespassing with destruction of government property.

• Why the January 6th committee won’t allow Trump to cross examine their witnesses.

• Why the January 6th committee won’t allow witnesses to testify on behalf of Trump.

• Why the January 6th committee calls this the worst event in American history and an insurrection. What about the bombing of Pearl Harbor, the destruction of the World Trade Center, WWII, even the Chinese Wuhan pandemic. Doesn’t an insurrection require guns and other weapons when there were none found.

• Why does President Biden say raising taxes is good for inflation?

• Why does Vice President Kamala Harris giggle so much

• Why does Vice President Kamala Harris speak with no message, no direction and no conclusions? Her speeches are wanderlust. Is she an affirmative action Attorney General, Senator and now Vice President because she is of mixed race and female. It seems that many of President Biden’s appointments are aimed at registering a first in many government job appointments. First gay, first female, first gay female. First black, gay female, etc. How about the field of applicants be based on the best and not the first. Identity politics is ruining America and turning Americans against each other.

• Is white supremacy according to President Biden the worst threat to America and if so why doesn’t he back it up with statistics which are readily available at the Dept of Justice and the FBI data bases. Because its a myth and can’t be proven by statistics.

• Isn’t fentanyl coming across the southern border with Joe’s blessings killing 110,000 Americans a year a greater threat to America or am I crazy. Isn’t the daily murder and shootings in Chicago, Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York, South L.A. Miami, and other cities with black on black crimes and Latinos crimes a greater threat to America and the minority communities. Or is “White Supremacy” worse. We need numbers not rhetoric. I don’t see many Asians, Indians, Philipinos, Bukharians, Vietnamese, Jews, Africans, Haitians, Polish Americans, Eastern Europeans, Western Europeans, and Caribbean’s going around committing crimes. I see black on black and Latinos mostly as the source of crimes.

• The easy way to bring down the price of oil, gas and diesel fuel (It’s so simple)turn on American energy again that Biden turned off in his war on fossil fuels without having clean energy ready to replace it . 3% wind and 11 % solar was all that was available
fffff

• Why is John Kerry “Special Envoy for Climate” so adamant about why we don’t need fossil fuel now when the price of energy is soaring ; What he proselytizes is we need clean energy now while he flies around in his private jet spewing carbon deposits and destroying the ozone layer while Americans are paying $5-$7 dollars for gas. What he fails to tell Americans that we only have enough wind and solar power to cover %15 of our energy needs today. Too little too soon! And he is a Yale graduate. One and one is two. But they forgot the basics.

• Why did the U.S. leave behind 85 billion dollars of military equipment to the enemy in Afghanistan when these high tech, state of the art weapons of war could have helped NATO and the Ukraine for free. Our dollars wasted requiring higher taxes for government’s wastefulness.
• Why did the U.S. leave Afghanistan in the middle of the night without telling our allies who we convinced in the very beginning to get into this war which lasted 20 years? Should anyone trust us again?

• Why politicians are allowed to lie without retribution or criminal prosecution when regular citizens are subject to perjury, fines and jail time. We need a new law that will protect innocent people from these vicious lies.

• Why the U.S. abandoned the strategic and important electric battery raw material Lithium in Afghanistan to our enemies. America last and our enemies first.

• Why the U.S. did not fulfill their commitment to all those Afghanis who put the lives of themselves and families by helping us fight the Taliban and Alkaida for 20 years that we would protect them and take them to the U.S. When we leave. Rather we forgot our promises and left them behind to the ruthless murderous Taliban regime to kill and torture them and their families.

• The good things that were accomplished under the Trump Administration.

• The bad things that were and are being perpetrated on the American people

• Why the U.S. left behind Americans and Loyal Afghanis when we left Afghanistan without keeping our promise to protect them for their loyalty in helping us fight the Taliban

• Why we never went back to save them

• Why we never supported the private citizens and organizations that went back to Afghanistan to bring those the U.S. left behind.

• Why we gave up one of the most important strategic, modern high tech military airports and military basis Bagram Air force base which upon our abandonment was immediately looted.

• Why we never went back to get our military equipment or even tried to.

• Why we left all these valuable assets to the Russians, Chinese and Taliban

• Why we allowed the U.S. to be dependent on our enemies for oil, gas, computer chips and materials to build electric cars.

• Why we have to go beg Iran, Russia, Venezuela, Saudi Arab to please, please increase your production of energy output to bring down the price of energy when we have the largest reserve in the world under our feet in the good old U.S.A.

• Why we don’t recognize that by shutting down our fossil fuel industry before clean energy is ready to replace it , we are (Americans) helping Russia pay for the war against the Ukraine and at the same time enabling the European s to be dependent on oil and gas coming from Russia and other enemies .

• Why this administration does not call out China on the cause of Covid.

* Why did President Biden take oil from our strategic oil reserve and sell some of it to China when we need it here

• Why is Europe going back to coal for energy when they were the leaders of clean and green energy policies and directives. Was it too soon to replace fossil fuel with clean renewable energy. Not enough of that energy ready only 3% wind and 11% solar causing lots of the inflation and dependency on Russia and other enemies like Iran, Venezuela, and Russia etc.

• Why there is a double standard of justice , one for criminals and one for good citizens

• Why there is a double standard of justice , one for Democrats and one for Republicans

• Why there is a double standard of Justice , one for conservatives and one for Democrats

• Why did the U.S. invade Afghanistan to avenge the al-Qaida orchestrated 9/11 terrorist attacks when the terrorist came from Saudi Arabia. Should we have not gone to Saudi Arabia?

• Why The “America First” policy is not valued and promoted

• Why the policies of this administration favors our enemies and not our American citizens.

• Why we don’t hear from the squad or Bernie Saunders anymore since Biden was elected and why are they now hiding VP Kamala Harris from speaking publicly.

• Why did Fauci say that vaccinations will prevent you from getting Covid when in fact they don’t

• Why did Fauci say we had nothing to do with Wuhan China s development of the Covid virus when in fact we were involved and assisted in financing and researching it.

• Why was it that China shut down the travelling of any Chinese people’s from the Wuhan province where the Covid virus was developed and started to spread to any areas in China. They could not travel within China but they were allowed to travel anywhere else outside of China perhaps to spread the virus internationally.

• Why did the head of the CDC(Center for Disease Control) Dr. Rochelle Walensky recently say that the wearing of masks and keeping 6 feet apart was not effective in preventing the spread of Covid which they thought was true in the very beginning but found out it was not so.

• Why are they promoting and vaccinating children when the infection rate of Covid in their age group is less than 1/2 of 1 percent and they have little or no chance of spreading it to others.

• Why don’t they talk about those who have had Covid have natural immunity and their natural immunity is 19 times more effective than the vaccinations. Our bodies are miracles keeping us healthy. Is the government working with the pharmaceutical companies to guarantee they make lots of money?

• Why does the government say that core inflation is 8.3 % when everything is up 20 %, 30% or higher. Do they think the American people are stupid. The only thing that is going down is the value of the U.S. dollar along with our purchasing power, the inability to maintain the same standard of living on a 3-5 % wage increase and the quality of life.
• Why don’t they investigate how so many of the senior politicians(Senators, Congressman) who have been in Washington D.C for multiple terms , go into public office on a relatively decent pay as middle class citizens but too many come out millionaires.

• Why it was almost impossible for Weinstein to kill himself amongst all the coincidences: guards failed to monitor his cell when he allegedly killed himself, simultaneously the surveillance cameras were not working, and the video tapes disappeared. Did he die because some of the world’s most famous people were passengers on the “Lolita Express” more than once or even dozens of times? Does that sound like suicide? Will Ghislaine Maxwell , Epstein’s partner survive prison?
Illustrious passengers on the “Lolita Express” listed on the planes manifest list and confirmed by the Pilots
• Donald J. Trump
• Bill Clinton (26+ trips) Did Hillary know?
• Kevin Spacey
• Chris Tucker
• Bill Gates
• Prince Andrew
• Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
• Alan Dershowitz
• Violinist Itzhak Perlman
• U.S. Sen. John Glenn
• Former Senate majority leader George Mitchell

There are dozens if not hundreds if not thousands of questions that won’t be asked and answered by the biased media because they hate Donald Trump more than they love America.
These(Ivy League) Harvard, Yale, Stanford, MIT, Princeton , Dartmouth, Colombia University elitist are not as smart as the grades that got them into some of the greatest university s in the world. (Many were admitted under affirmative action giving them an additional 150+/- points for their admissions exams) over the Asians and whites.
That gave them an edge forcing more deserving and harder working and more intelligent people to the back of the line. That policy for the last 50 + years has bread mediocrity and second rate people to the front. These people, these affirmative action folks are smart but not as smart as the ones who were forced to the back of the line. Is this another policy of America last? Who do you want in the medical operating room working on your health, who do you want teaching your children, who do you want running our government, who do you want as your lawyer.

This is the price we pay because there is no common sense policy. We are too politically correct; we are for the criminal more than the victim. We feel we have to make amends because the criminal is a criminal because society failed them, because they were victims of discrimination, and we have to treat them differently because we failed them. But I say there are victims who came from the same place and overcame. We have to recall all those “Woke” politicians, prosecutors, educators etc.
The media has become the arm of the Democrat party and not doing the job they were endowed with by the first amendment.
Without an honest, moral and just media, we have no democracy. As the fourth estate the Medias’ tasks is to tell the truth, expose the lies, defend democracy and the Constitution of the United States of America. The media has failed Americans and have become the arm of the Democrat party protecting them from scandal and lies not revealed. In doing so has contributed to the demise of our country and democracy along with political correctness, identity politics, and left wing politics.

Let’s stop leading from behind. Lets support those Americans that attain greatness through hard work, good grades, fair competition without the government leaning on the scales of justice in doing so we will get the very best to the front of the line; and oh yes , let woman compete in sports not with trans men but with woman only. If you are born a boy then you should not be able to compete as a woman. None of these folks belong in the woman’s bathrooms, locker rooms or on athletic fields. Let common sense and justice prevail.

Has anyone who has read this article been able to connect the dots and get a clear picture as to what is going on.
