Mitch McConnell Stepping Down – WHO will China Choose to Replace Him?

While some might jump for joy at the news – me? Meh. Like the headline says – who will China replace him with.


Let’s not forget his position as Minority Leader and Majority Leader before that is an elected one. ALL the “republican” Senators voted for him – or enough to put give him the nod. Shouldn’t that tell you something?

What?! Do you think all those Senators who voted for him were unaware of his ties to China? Were they clueless about his RINO record? Of course not. They knew. They voted him in anyway. Why? Money and  power – that’s why.

Once again, I’ll remind you what the game is in Washington (not to mention nearly every elected office in this nation) – it’s stay in office or move to a better office. Like McCarthy in the House, McConnell held massive purse strings to “help” his comrades get elected again and again. Beyond this, I have no idea what other juice these guys carry in their squirt guns but it is enough to allow them to kneel to their masters – and WE the People ain’t them.

One thing I can guarANtee you – whoever takes McConnell’s place will be a died-in-the-wool statist – most likely someone who needs to constantly brush off the lint from China’s pocket.

Just one more reason why WE the People need to step up and throw these bastards out. It ain’t gonna happen overnight. Let’s start with November 2024 with some massive action to put “republicans” in all those offices up for bid. After that, we can roll up our sleeves and begin to let them know whose boss in this nation.

AM I NEXT on the FIB’s “Hit List”?

Short answer – I doubt it, but I’ll tell you this – IF they DO come for me – head for the hills. Not because “m “all that” but exactly because I am not.

FBI Instructs J6 Conservative Reporter Steve Baker to Turn Himself in on Friday – This Comes After He Questioned the Government’s Role in the Protests on Jan. 6

Steve BakerBefore I saw this article I never heard of Steve Baker. I wish I had. It seems he was in DC on January 6, 2021, doing what real journalists do – reporting. Forget about “freedom of the press”. Forget about “free speech”. He. Was. There. That’s enough for the new DOiJ and their FIB thugs.

Let’s face it, if Steve Baker had done anything worth of being charged, they would have scooped him up long ago, but no, they waited until now. Why? My gut tells me because he just won’t shut up.

Here is what Steve Baker posted:

What I Saw on January 6th in Washington, DC

Who was “Up the Chain” on January 6?

Oh look! He’s questioning “authority”! Get him!

Trouble is, unlike many J6 political prisoners – Steve Baker has legal representation – likely decent legal representation, and that makes all the difference. You can laud our justice system all you want but I’ll continue to maintain that today’s citizens can only receive as much justice as they can afford. That said, no matter how deep one’s pockets are, our governments’ pockets are bottomless – thanks to us sleepy, apathetic, do-nothing citizens. As long as WE are willing to write the blank checks – they will stop at nothing to move their agenda forward.


Right MSNBS?

So here’s another one from The National File

Video: MSNBC Says Rights Come from Government, Not God, and You’re a Christian Nationalist if You Think Otherwise

I can NOT let this slide!

Of course, first, I’d have to ask how MSNBS defines “Christian Nationalist”. It’s not that I have any objection to the term as I understand it but let’s get a few things straight:

I am NOT a “republican”. Yes, I am registered as such but the fact is I despise party politics because all political parties are statists at heart.

I am NOT a “libertarian”.  Of course one must distinguish between someone who belongs to the “libertarian party” (I’m sure you know my thoughts on that one!) and someone who has a general affinity for libertarian ideas. To that end I do agree with many libertarian ideas but we have our differences also.

I am NOT a “conservative”. Again there’s the “party” and the ideas they promote and again, I share some of the ideas.

I MIGHT be considered a “nationalist”. It depends on how you mean. If being a nationalist means being opposed to statist concepts, I’m all in.

I MIGHT be considered a “constitutionalist”. Definitions mean a lot. Here I fully support the concept of a limited government by the People. I’m all in on self-governing. The problem is, as a nation, we’ve strayed far from this ideal.

I AM CERTAINLY an individualist. I have my own thoughts and ideas on just about everything. We may agree or disagree on a little or a lot. Either way, that’s okay.

And as long as the folks as MSNBS brought it up

I AM A CHRISTIAN – at least I confess Jesus as Lord and believe God raised him from the dead (Romans 10:9), along with some other things. Some of my siblings in Christ may doubt my status but I’m willing to leave it to God Almighty to make that final determination. (Like I have a choice 🙂

So let’s  consider just the headline from The National File and the allusion concerning “rights”.

First and foremost MSNBS, y’all can bite me. I really, really do not give a whit about your opinion concerning me. This is for those with enough brains and inquisitiveness to seek out this post and consider these words in earnest.

Now about their contention that “rights come from government, not from God”, um, ahem, I hate to be the one to point this out but you folks a full of “it”.  If you believe in any god then how can you deny your own god? For the rest of you, I need to point out, even if you shun any “god”, then government IS your god. Oh. Let me spell it out for you.

You see, “government” is NOT an “entity”. Government is much like a rock in the yard, except the rock actually has a physical form. Government is what y’all like to call a “social construct”.  As such “government” is no more tangible than any god worshiped by men over the centuries. Now let’s get down to some brass tacks, shall we?

In our nation, as I like to say, WE the People ARE the Government. You got that? Now, we are not god, no, not at all. However WE did not and do not “grant” rights. We accept them aseither God-given or natural rights. Take your pick. Once again, since humans naturally tend to seek out something greater than ourselves, i.e. “God”, to argue against the origin of our natural rights can be prohibitively  problematic.  In any true logical debate, God wins. Sorry.

As for you folks, well, y’all seem to think in terms of “our betters” – you know, the elites. And who are they but “godlike creatures” in human form? What makes them better, after all? Do they sport super powers? Are they endowed with far greater intelligence? Have they been blessed (careful now!) with superior morality? I could go on but the sheer ridiculousness of this line of thought is embarrassing. Let’s face it, you are sinking in your own cesspool of shit.

Let’s keep this simple because, really, between whoever came out with such a foolish idea and myself, only one of us is truly capable of thought and if you’re thumping your chest right now, I see no point in trying to ‘splain it further. For the rest of us, I’ll offer this (hopefully) succinct answer.

The concept of “rights” cannot come from “government” because “government” can never be sentient. Nor can rights come from humans because no one human or group of humans can qualify to grant rights. In short, rights are something every human is born with. It’s a package deal. Just like the very basic human right to defend oneself, our rights are instinctive and as such are inseparable from our very existence.

Chris Kuehne and My Case for J6 Political Prisoner Reparations

Considering the events described here by The Gateway Pundit, this goes far beyond reparations. In fact, on days like today when I first learned of Chris Kuehne wife, Annette and their son’s ordeal, I wish I WAS a lawyer. The FIB’s and anyone else involved in this atrocity should be sued to the limits. Compare these events to ALL the cases against Donald J. Trump.

This from The Gateway Pundit article:

Chris Kuehne was sentenced on Friday, February 23, 2024 in a DC courtroom.

Chris, a decorated war veteran who was picking up trash inside the US Capitol on January 6, 2021, was sentenced to:
** 75 days in prison
** 60 days of home detention
** 2 years of probation.

Read the whole article to discover what his poor wife and child were subject to in order to force him to receive this “punishment” for his actions on January 6, 2021. Know this: I am making NO judgements concerning actual guilt or innocence here other than to again state unequivocally there is absolutely NO WAY this man received a fair trial. I have yet to see ANY evidence made public to  justify the extremes the FIB’s and the DOiJ (Department of inJustice) went to achieve this result.

Hence my continued call for reparations. Again I  have NO PROBLEM with laws being enforced or lawbreakers being prosecuted but what happened to “let the punishment fit the crime?’ What crime did that four-year-old commit to suffer as he did – not only on that 12 degree morning but all this time since then? What crime did Annette Kuehne commit? Neither have been charged to my knowledge and even if they had, it is customary for suspects in this country to actually be tried and convicted before punishment is inflicted.

ALL of this must stop – not JUST from January 6 either. NO citizen should be subject to such treatment. We have due process in this country. We have the right to a speedy trial. We have protection against cruel and unusual punishment and, by the way, if it is NOT unusual for a citizen to be held in appalling conditions, without medical care, without proper food, shelter, and clothing, then this, too, needs to change.

I grew up thinking things are better here in this nation – WE are better. It is becoming more and more obvious just how wrong I’ve been.

Here’s that link again:

ICYMI: Chris Wray’s FBI Forced a Young Mother to Stand Outside Barefoot with Her 4-Yr-Old Boy in His Pajamas in 12° Weather While They Ransacked Her Home – She Lost Her Baby the Next Day

Primary Day Virginia – March 5, 2024 What you should know.

UPDATE: March 5 will ONLY be to choose the Presidential nominee. The Congressional and Senate Primaries (and who knows what else!) will be held in June

Maybe I was supposed to know this but I didn’t. You don’t need to ask me, I’ll just say it – in this day of the “information age” either the communications skills of those “in the know” simply suck or we have far too much information and far too few filters. As one of those filters, I may have to shoulder part of the blame IF I can ever find out where to find such information. Past experience indicates such “obvious” sources such as the Virginia Department of Elections  are sometimes worthless. For example, I rather thought this link would simply be posted on VDoE home page but no, I didn’t find it until I searched specifically for Virginia Primary Elections 2024. I swear I performed the same search earlier to come up with different results. Do note that details for the June Primaries are “not yet available”. Huh.

Virginia’s PRESIDENTAL primary is just ONE week away.

There will be TWO primaries rolled into one on Tuesday – one for the democrats and one for the republicans. Other parties can go fish. Actually, the only qualification to vote in either (but NOT both) primaries is one must be eligible to vote in Virginia – specifically in one’s district.

To date, every hopeful who signed up to be on the ballot is still eligible but most have “suspended” their campaigns so voting for them won’t count. They all have up to the day before the primary (IF my understanding is correct) to withdraw.

The bottom line is – Slo Mo Joe will probably be the pick for the dems while I have little doubt Donald J. Trump will run away with ALL of Tuesday’s primaries, including Virginia’s.

Now for VA’s Next Primary…

Drilling down this really is only specific to  Congressional District 5  in Virginia and our representative Bob Good who is being primaried. From The National File:

Video: John McGuire Pledged Not to Primary Bob Good, Now He’s Doing Just That

If you like your republlic you can keep it - Ben FranklinDuring my recent participation in my county’s “mass meeting” I had the opportunity to ask one of the U.S. Senate hopefuls what the deal was with John McGuire. Now this fellow (the one I was talking to) runs in DC circles so I’m pretty confident he knew the buzz. He said McGuire was hand-picked to primary Bob Good by non other than Kevin McCarthy which is exactly what the article above will tell you. That’s enough for me.

Bluntly put, I like Bob Good for the most part. Of the several congressmen who have served in the district where I lived over the years, he stands out as someone who  actually demonstrates constitutional principles. My one bitch is he seems to have backed away from the J6 political prisoner issue. While I’m not as vocal here as I was, I have not forgotten them. I bring it up to EVERY person I talk to who has anything to do with government OR even shows an interest. It’s that important. Bob Good disappoints on that one. Even so, this is no reason to dump him for a conservative pretender, let’s face facts a RINO EXTRAORDINAIRE like John McGuire. He came off as phony from the starting block – a “Real Christian” indeed. What?! Is he hinting I’ve been faking it all these years because he hasn’t seen me that time he was in church? (for the record, I have no idea what, denomination he ascribes to, what, if any, church he attends and how often he attends one. What I can tell you is there are indeed some “regular church people” whom I might be surprised to see come eternity. Then again, it’s not like I worked my way in so…

In any case, I’m making no endorsements here. What I am doing is encouraging you, wherever you are to vote in this primary and again in November and then some.  What do I mean “and then some”?

First – know whom you are voting for! To be blunt, I was surprised when Bob Good replaced Denver Riggleman. I only later found out Riggleman tended to side with the statists more than with us constitutionalists.

NEXT – PLEASE – get out the vote! Talk to people, encourage others, register more voters. We are NOT going to see victory unless we overrun the polls with real, live voters. We MUST overwhelm the ballot stuffing cheaters and the “voters” from the graves.

You need not be a VA District 5 voter to make a difference. In fact, your impact could easily  be greater if you happen to have a hand in turning the tide on one of the “blue” districts.

Keep this in mind: WE the People ARE the Government! it’s about time we started acting like it.

After Losing Her HOME STATE – Why Nikki Haley Won’t Take The HINT and Quit!

South Carolina, Saturday, February 24, 2024 – Donald J. Trump crushes former SC governor Nikki Haley in her own state, marking the latest in a series of massive primary defeats. And still she perseveres.

Is she stubborn or just that stupid? Determined maybe?

My own first thought was simple greed. She reportedly raised a good deal of money for her bid. How much can she keep? Ostensibly, none of it. Of course my own devious mind brings up the question – ARE there ways around these rules? Probably. I cannot say for sure. Nor can I reasonably say what will happen to Haley’s cash – IF there is anything left. Don’t forget many political campaigns end up with the prospective candidate claiming poverty. It’s not unusual for them to leave huge debts among the political litter left behind.

It makes one wonder how so many politicians leave their calling as millionaires. Sure, some are wealthy before they enter politics, but it is not unheard of for some financially genius politicos to go home with far more money than they arrived with. While simultaneously leaving the rest of us poorer than ever. Some genius.

As for Nikki, I cannot say but really girl, take the hint. Get lost. You are spent.

Is a Reckoning Coming???

In a word… YES! Such is the easy part. The what, when, and wherefore are different matters altogether – things I cannot answer. That said I was heartened by my reading this morning. Here it is for you – all 40 verses (WEB)

Psalms 37:1  (By David.) Don’t fret because of evil-doers, Neither be envious against those who work unrighteousness.
2  For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, And wither like the green herb.
3  Trust in Yahweh, and do good. Dwell in the land, and enjoy safe pasture.
4  Also delight yourself in Yahweh, And he will give you the desires of your heart.
5  Commit your way to Yahweh. Trust also in him, and he will do this:
6  He will make your righteousness go forth as the light, And your justice as the noon day sun.
7  Rest in Yahweh, and wait patiently for him. Don’t fret because of him who prospers in his way, Because of the man who makes wicked plots happen.
8  Cease from anger, and forsake wrath. Don’t fret, it leads only to evildoing.
9  For evildoers shall be cut off, But those who wait for Yahweh shall inherit the land.
10  For yet a little while, and the wicked will be no more. Yes, though you look for his place, he isn’t there.
11  But the humble shall inherit the land, And shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
12  The wicked plots against the just, And gnashes at him with his teeth.
13  The Lord will laugh at him, For he sees that his day is coming.
14  The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, To cast down the poor and needy, To kill those who are upright in the way.
15  Their sword shall enter into their own heart. Their bows shall be broken.
16  Better is a little that the righteous has, Than the abundance of many wicked.
17  For the arms of the wicked shall be broken, But Yahweh upholds the righteous.
18  Yahweh knows the days of the perfect. Their inheritance shall be forever.
19  They shall not be disappointed in the time of evil. In the days of famine they shall be satisfied.
20  But the wicked shall perish. The enemies of Yahweh shall be like the beauty of the fields. They will vanish— Vanish like smoke.
21  The wicked borrow, and don’t pay back, But the righteous give generously.
22  For such as are blessed by him shall inherit the land. Those who are cursed by him shall be cut off.
23  A man’s goings are established by Yahweh. He delights in his way.
24  Though he stumble, he shall not fall, For Yahweh holds him up with his hand.
25  I have been young, and now am old, Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, Nor his children begging for bread.
26  All day long he deals graciously, and lends. His seed is blessed.
27  Depart from evil, and do good; Live securely forever.
28  For Yahweh loves justice, And doesn’t forsake his saints. They are preserved forever, But the children of the wicked shall be cut off.
29  The righteous shall inherit the land, And live in it forever.
30  The mouth of the righteous talks of wisdom. His tongue speaks justice.
31  The law of his God is in his heart. None of his steps shall slide.
32  The wicked watches the righteous, And seeks to kill him.
33  Yahweh will not leave him in his hand, Nor condemn him when he is judged.
34  Wait for Yahweh, and keep his way, And he will exalt you to inherit the land. When the wicked are cut off, you shall see it.
35  I have seen the wicked in great power, Spreading himself like a green tree in its native soil.
36  But he passed away, and, behold, he was not. Yes, I sought him, but he could not be found.
37  Mark the perfect man, and see the upright, For there is a future for the man of peace.
38  As for transgressors, they shall be destroyed together. The future of the wicked shall be cut off.
39  But the salvation of the righteous is from Yahweh. He is their stronghold in the time of trouble.
40  Yahweh helps them, and rescues them. He rescues them from the wicked, and saves them, Because they have taken refuge in him.

Granted, this was written before even Christ was born, but the thoughts are timeless. They are just as valid today as they were thousands of years ago.

For those of you with less patience – here’s the short version, paraphrased.

Don’t let the bad guys bother you. You do good. They will get theirs.

A reckoning IS coming. Maybe it will be in November – maybe by this time next year. Perhaps it will not happen in our lifetime but it WILL come. That is a  promise made by our Heavenly Father – YHWH Himself. Take comfort and do yourself a favor – read the whole thing.  It is well worth your time.

Was Psalm 35 Written for US?

Check it out – Psalm 35 is presented in its entirety below in the World English Bible (WEB) version. Yeah I know – twenty-eight verses long.  Hooboy, stop griping. 🙂

I’ll comment after the text.

Psalms 35:1  (By David.) Contend, Yahweh, with those who contend with me. Fight against those who fight against me.
2  Take hold of shield and buckler, And stand up for my help.
3  Brandish the spear and block those who pursue me. Tell my soul, “I am your salvation.”
4  Let those who seek after my soul be disappointed and brought to dishonor. Let those who plot my ruin be turned back and confounded.
5  Let them be as chaff before the wind, Yahweh’s angel driving them on.
6  Let their way be dark and slippery, Yahweh’s angel pursuing them.
7  For without cause they have hidden their net in a pit for me. Without cause they have dug a pit for my soul.
8  Let destruction come on him unawares. Let his net that he has hidden catch himself. Let him fall into that destruction.
9  My soul shall be joyful in Yahweh. It shall rejoice in his salvation.
10  All my bones shall say, “Yahweh, who is like you, Who delivers the poor from him who is too strong for him, Yes, the poor and the needy from him who robs him?”
11  Unrighteous witnesses rise up. They ask me about things that I don’t know about.
12  They reward me evil for good, To the bereaving of my soul.
13  But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing was sackcloth. I afflicted my soul with fasting. My prayer returned into my own bosom.
14  I behaved myself as though it had been my friend or my brother. I bowed down mourning, as one who mourns his mother.
15  But in my adversity, they rejoiced, and gathered themselves together. The attackers gathered themselves together against me, and I didn’t know it. They tore at me, and didn’t cease.
16  Like the profane mockers in feasts, They gnashed their teeth at me.
17  Lord, how long will you look on? Rescue my soul from their destruction, My precious life from the lions.
18  I will give you thanks in the great assembly. I will praise you among many people.
19  Don’t let those who are my enemies wrongfully rejoice over me; Neither let them wink with the eye who hate me without a cause.
20  For they don’t speak peace, But they devise deceitful words against those who are quiet in the land.
21  Yes, they opened their mouth wide against me. They said, “Aha! Aha! Our eye has seen it!”
22  You have seen it, Yahweh. Don’t keep silent. Lord, don’t be far from me.
23  Wake up! Rise up to defend me, my God! My Lord, contend for me!
24  Vindicate me, Yahweh my God, according to your righteousness; Don’t let them gloat over me.
25  Don’t let them say in their heart, “Aha! That’s the way we want it!” Don’t let them say, “We have swallowed him up!”
26  Let them be disappointed and confounded together who rejoice at my calamity. Let them be clothed with shame and dishonor who magnify themselves against me.
27  Let them shout for joy and be glad, who favor my righteous cause. Yes, let them say continually, “Yahweh be magnified, Who has pleasure in the prosperity of his servant!”
28  My tongue shall talk about your righteousness and about your praise all day long.

First note this WEB version renders the name of our Heavenly Father correctly rather than simply substituting the word “LORD” for YHWH. (Yahweh is the “English” version of the Hebrew tetragammon for YHWH –  vowels weren’t written in the Hebrew so….) There are a few places Bullinger notes the Hebrews did something similar in their version – a BIG “NO-NO” for the Hebrews! Bullinger duly notes these instances but in other places he simply capitalizes the word “LORD” to signify. Oi.

Now I am NOT going to review this Psalm line by line or segment by segment. Rather, I’ll just rely the thoughts I had while reading it myself, such as I can remember them.

David,. who wrote this, is appealing to YHWH to protect him against his enemies. So in answer to the question in the topic line – no, this wasn’t written specifically for us today, BUT read on as it certainly could be!

David’s enemies were attacking him verbally and physically, nearly all of his life. He spent 40 years after being anointed as King on the run. After Saul died, his own son Absalom tried to kill him. What a mess! David is described as a “bloody man” as well as a man after God’s own heart. Could both be true? Of course. That said, most of the time David was the good guy.  One of the starkest exceptions was when he arraigned for his friend Uriah to be killed in battle so he could have Uriah’s wife Bathsheba. That was nasty.

I point to this not to excuse David but to demonstrate how loving and forgiving YHWH was and is. Not only did he forgive David but Solomon was born of Bathsheba. Maybe someday we will all understand all of this but for now, I’m happy to just accepted it as written. So back to the Psalm…

One thing that stands out about David again and again is his reliance upon God for help and deliverance in every situation. This passage is no different. Consider how he describes the attacks on him. Are they not similar to what we are seeing today? Not just the attacks on Donald Trump but also how the statists are attacking everything about our nation, our way of life. Look deeper and you will see how those attacks are really against God Almighty Himself!

Like David, we need to turn to YHWH. We need to seek His deliverance both directly in the name of  His only begotten Son and our Lord and Savior and Brother Jesus the Messiah. It was Jesus’ life and death where we are now able to seek out our Heavenly Father.

Ephesians 2:18-19  For through him we both [Jew and Gentile] have our access in one Spirit to the Father.  So then you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but you are fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God,

Look closely and you’ll see those who oppose God today reaping the same results!

Psalm 35:26  Let them be disappointed and confounded together who rejoice at my calamity. Let them be clothed with shame and dishonor who magnify themselves against me.

This passage does not stand alone. Time and time again, Israel turned against God allowing their enemies to prevail. Yet when they turned to YHWH and sought Him out – asked for deliverance – HE responded and brought victory to His people over their enemies.

Their God is our God and He has not changed. Dire as things now seem, we CAN seek and receive deliverance! My prayer is you will join me in seeking help from our Heavenly Father and our Lord and Savior, and Brother Jesus the Messiah.

God bless

Mayorkas Impeached! Now What? Expect NOTHING!

You heard it here first – probably. No, that DHS Secretary Alehandro Mayorkas was impeached is all over the news. What nobody else will tell you is this is mostly likely a nothing burger. Why? Because he did nothing wrong? No.

Sunday night, Mark Levin read out the charges against Mayorkas on the air and they in themselves were quite damning. The charges are not simply “differences in policy” as the statists are wont to say and Levin was quick to point out but rather pointed to specific portions of the U. S. Code that were openly and blatantly ignored – violated, actually. Do you feel violated? I know I do.  So what IS this deal with yet another impeachment?

First of all, let’s be clear on what an impeachment per our constitution actually is – it is an accusation. It may surprise you to learn how many officials have actually been impeached over the years. As in any court of law the defendant, the person impeached, is considered innocent until proven guilty. This standard is no less for Mayorkas no matter how slimey he may appear.  After the House of Representatives impeaches an official, a trial is held in the U. S. Senate. A two thirds or 67/100 Senate vote is required to convict.

We all know about the two impeachments of Donald J. Trump, and most of us know about William J. Clinton’s impeachment. All three times, the defendants were acquitted in the Senate. Unlike other instances, in these cases, I firmly believe the results were political rather than based on the evidence. This doesn’t mean I believe the defendants deserved acquittal or conviction, just that if the opposition party had enough votes, the conviction would have been far more likely. This is NOT a dig against the system but rather my own indictment of the two-party system the statists hold so dear. Without them Trump would never have been impeached at all. As for Clinton? I don’t know. I do believe he may well have been impeachable on far more serious charges and convicted if Congress actually did their jobs. Then again, I can think of several others who would bear the brand of conviction in a less biased D. C.

That brings us to the current brouhaha. Mayorkas is one of the prominent bad actors in this administration, right up there with Biden. Okay, give Biden a break, I agree with prosecutor Hur – Slo-Mo Joe isn’t competent, much less to stand trial. The problem with the Mayorkas debacle is while I’ve not one shred of doubt he would be found guilty in an unbiased Senate, we are now suffering from an EXCEPTIONALLY BIASED Senate. For get party politics – we’re talking statists here on both sides of the aisle. If the Senate balanced was reversed – heavily reversed in favor of the “R”s, I doubt if Mayorkas would be convicted even then. My reasoning?

DHS Secretary Alehandro Mayorkas is doing the express bidding of the statists who have usurped power from us citizens. IF, by some chance, he WERE “convicted”, he would more likely than not retire to a multi-million dollar estate and never want for anything again. Oh dear! Don’t expect him to sit rotting in the D.C. gulag for years waiting for trial either. No, that’s not for them, that’s for us.

The penalty for a constitutional impeachment is this:

“…the penalty for an impeached official upon conviction is removal from office. In some cases, the Senate has also disqualified such officials from holding public offices in the future.”

Wow. That hurts. In a just world he should at the very least die a long slow death from AIDS as a result of f*cking an entire nation, but no. Like I said – those things aren’t for them.

MAYBE he will resign rather than face a trial. Other than that you can expect him to stand “trial” and be acquitted, thus cementing the statists’ goal of flooding our nation with illegal aliens. Look beyond Mayorkas – look at everything those in  power are imposing on us citizens. I’ve said this before  and I’ll keep repeating it until the point becomes moot:

The statists want to destroy our nation, our sovereignty, so a one-world government can be installed. Now maybe 5-10-20 years ago this statement would be viewed as coming from a crazed wild-eyed nutcase – in some instances maybe it still is but really. The goal of the globalists is to centralize ALL nations into a one-world government. We’ve heard from the statists themselves. They’ve come out of the closet and are openly stating their objectives. This is no longer conjecture – it is fact.  As long as our nation is sovereign – as long as WE the People are self-governing citizens of a constitutional republic, a one-world government is a non-starter. So what can WE do?

We can stand up, take back our government, and tell the statists to take a hike. Simple? Yes. Easy? Hardly. The first, and likely the ONLY sane step right now is to focus on the 2024 election. We cannot slough it off. We cannot relent. We’ve been asleep far too long as it is. This November it is do or die. We have no hope of surviving another round of statist control – in D. C. or in our State Capitals. Ideally, our control – our decentralized control should emanate from the tiniest burg to our nation’s capital, but it must begin at the federal and state levels.

Register to vote if you are not registered already. From there, get vocal. Stop simply commiserating with others about the sorry state of things and ask the tough question – are you registered to vote? We need bodies. Unlike the democrats we need LIVING bodies, preferably those willing to step up for liberty – to vote the statists OUT of office – to hold anyone in office accountable.

If you live in Virginia – feel free to utilize the graphic to your right. The qr code as well as the link in the graphic itself will take you to Virginia’s DOE registration page. Feel free to copy it, share it, promote it. It is non-political and costs nothing.  Awww! Okay, here it is again:


If you live elsewhere, nothing is stopping you from doing the same in your state. Contact me if you need help. It’s not that hard. Send me your graphic if you want and I’ll post it. Heck I’ll set up an entire page for that matter. At this point, I don’t have time to do it all by myself.

Let’s Take Back Our Nation!



SCOTUS or The Supreme Court of the United States has been in the news a LOT lately. They’ve made some brave and admirable decisions. They’ve also made some terrible rulings. Some recent rulings are so bad I have to wonder if at least two of our current justices are serving under severe threats to themselves or loved ones. I’ve always suspected Justice Scalia death was at the hands of one or more bad actors.

No matter what decisions SCOTUS may  make or which way they turn on any one issue is not at all a topic I’m bringing up today. While many contend they and they alone are the last word on law in this nation, I heartily disagree. WE the People are the last word. Period. Not by “vote” per se but by constitutional means of establishing and refining the law of the land.

So what IS this “Sad Truth” about SCOTUS?

This story goes back, way, waaaay back to 1939 and the Supreme Court case United States v. Miller, 307 U.S. 174 . I learned about this in the fiction book “Unintended Consequences” by John Ross. While the work itself is fiction the author worked the story around a lot of actual  history (not to mention loads of excellent firearm information.)Ross’ research was top notch. Thus I’m relying on the story as he told it.

How this case even came to the Supreme Court is amazing in and of itself. Two men, suspected of being moonshiners, were “busted” by two AFT agents. The only trouble was, the agents couldn’t find anything illegal on the men except, one of them had a shotgun that was about a half-inch too short according to the 1934 NFA or National Firearms Act. Since the men were from out of state, they were charged – the first citizens to be so charged under this law. The local judge threw the case out, citing, of all things, the Constitution of the United States. The feds appealed. Then a “funny” thing happened…

Nobody showed up for the defense. According to the story as related by Mr. Ross, the defendants could not be located. The lawyers could not/ did not want to work for free, as even if the defendants could be located, it was certain they had no money to pay for their defense. So the feds contentions were presented to SCOTUS unchallenged.

Now by 1939, FDR had a firm hand on the makeup on the Supreme Court so one could very well surmise the court would rule in favor of the government anyway but such is pure supposition. Speculation aside – what actually happened?

SCOTUS Ruled for The Government

Defenders of the court maintain they had no choice. I cannot argue that as I have no basis in legal proceedings to judge by. Thus I am only left with what common sense I have as a self-governing citizen. What that tells me is the entire act should  have been ruled unconstitutional from the get-go, just like the original judge ruled previously. Instead they only overturned part of his ruling and only such details as the feds put forth thus demonstrating the Sad Truth About SCOTUS – our Supreme Court is populated with humans just as fallible as the rest of us AND prone to their own bias.

While there is zero chance I’d ever be admitted to any bar association, muchless be tapped to sit on the Supreme Court – side note here – there is NO stipulation that a Supreme Court Justice must even be a lawyer – I’ll never be deterred from looking at any law passed in this nation and calling BS. I’ll go even further down that road:

As far as our Second Amendment is concerned, I take the words “shall not be infringed” as the litmus test for any gun law so much so I fully believe any “gun law” is likely to be unconstitutional straight out of the box. One thing I am aware of, in legalese definitions are everything, thus my view depends entirely on how the term “gun law” is defined. For example – here in Virginia but the House of Delegates and the Senate just passed a “gun law” banning “assault weapons”.  It will have to wait in line for its day in court as there are four similar laws vying for a SOCTUS ruling at last count. I need not wait for the robed oracles to decree to render my own layman’s opinion – they are all unconstitutional. Period. How can I say that? Simply this:

All of these laws declare certain firearms illegal due to how they are constructed. Let’s cut to the chase and visit the granddaddy of all US bans – the Firearm Owners’ Protection Act (FOPA) of 1986. Notice the irony of the title of this legislation. Before then machine guns were still legal “to manufacture for ‘civilian‘ use” (misnomer if one considers the term ‘civilian’ refers to someone who is NOT serving in the military.)

This from the DOJ’s website:

 On the positive side, FOPA finally banned the manufacture of machine guns for civilian use and made it unlawful for anyone, not just licensees, to sell firearms to prohibited persons.

Among the several issues I have with this page is I fail to see what is “positive” about the above contention. Beyond that, even if one disagrees with my assertation, doesn’t the above paragraph then insinuate the preceding bullet points are not positives? (On that I would agree!)

Sure, one can pick out a few pluses but what real need is there to pass a law stating acts that should be legal anyway are, well, legal? There there’s the whole “felons owning firearms” bit.  Under section IV on the page linked above the DOJ imparts how the Gun Control Act of 1968 (GCA) made it illegal for felons to possess or acquire firearms. In other words, while it is ingrained in our modern brains that felons cannot own firearms, this has only been true in this nation since 1968. Again, there is no such constructional constraint.

Now there are provisions in the 1986 legislation for mandatory sentencing for actual criminal acts. While I’m not about to enter the debate on mandatory sentencing at this point, I have absolutely no problem with the concept of adding or increasing penalties for criminal acts  performed or aided with a firearm. However we do need to be careful in this day and age of increased attention on “gun violence”.

Remember the Waukesha Wisconsin Christmas Parade attack? Are those five who died any less dead than if they were killed by firearms? Where were the calls for increased penalties for death by automobile? What about murder by other means? Are those victims less dead? Are their lives less valued because they were not killed with a firearm? I do get the point of the advocates to discourage the use of firearms in crimes, but shouldn’t we be rather discouraging the crimes themselves?

Getting back to SCOTUS – beginning with the 1939 ruling on the 1934 National Firearms Act and since – they have consistently failed to hand down the most obvious ruling – our rights as citizens SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED. Period. End of story. Instead they duck and dodge those issues which should be crystal clear in order to pacify the statists. This is where WE the People need to step up and step in.

The courts, SCOTUS, included love to invoke the concept of “public policy” – the idea that the will of the “people” should prevail. The problem here lies with the idea that the “will of the people” is expressed in legislation passed by federal, state, and local authorities (and more recently government agencies that  have zero constitutional authority whatsoever). The problem there is our so-called “representatives” more often represent those controlling their political party rather than the constituents who voted them into office.

Quick quiz: who among you voted for a representative who supported a law banning incandescent light bulbs? Did anybody bother to ask you?  My point exactly.

So first, we need to ensure those we choose to represent us are actually paying attention to what we really want. In my case, I want liberty so anything smacking of more government had better be based on some very strong logic.

Second, we need to hold our courts accountable per the law of our land by clearly opposing rulings that stray from our basis in law. Once again, our representatives need to have their feet held to the fire. We need to insist they change those laws the courts refuse to recognize as overstepping constitutional limits.

Finally, we need to carefully, clarify any questionable language in our founding documents. In other words, in some cases, we may need to amend  our constitution(s).

For example, it seems the “commerce clause” (Article 1, Section 8, Clause 3 of the U.S. Constitution) is often interpreted as expanding congressional overview to such things that “may” cross state lines. Nonsense. What does make sense is to refine this clause and define exactly what we really do want the federal government to have a hand in regulating as well as some strict limitations on such authority.

Again, we need to be careful with this las so we don’t make things worse than what they already are.

If all this seems daunting and rather impossible, allow me to suggest a reason why. We’ve grown used to the “set it and forget it” mindset when it comes to self-government. We want to live our lives and not be bothered. Well, there are governmental systems for that too. Feel free to choose between a kingdom, a dictatorship, or some sort of social-communist system. They all leave government to “the professionals”.  That’s not how our constitutional republic works. Our system is one of supposedly limited government held in trust by reliable citizens chosen to server – ostensibly for limited times before being released to return to their primary occupations. The very temporary nature of our ideal citizen-representatives was meant to be an additional safeguard against what has become a permanent corrupt ruling class.

Nothing will happen overnight. It cannot. Nothing will happen at all unless WE the People begin to step up and take hold of the duties and responsibilities inherent in our birthright as self-governing citizens of a constitutional republic.

Why Everyone’s Throwing Slo-Mo Joe Under the Bus

If you haven’t heard, where have you been?

The Special Counsel Robert K Hur report on Joe Biden’s classified documents fiasco has caused quite the stir. My takeaway is simple:

Joe Biden mishandling classified documents was not only grossly illegal but shockingly atrocious

Joe Biden, however, lacks the mental capacity to be charged and tried for his actions

WOW! Is it any wonder why so many on both sides of the political spectrum are calling for his head? It is soooooo bad I wouldn’t be surprised to see him voluntarily step down any day now.  To that I gotta ask… is this a good thing? Maybe not.

Look, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist, or even a “medical professional” to question Slo-Mo Joe’s mental state. Most days he can barely speak a coherent thought. Even the MSM has started reporting his gaffs. Heck, even before he was VP (something he cannot remember the details about.) I thought he was unfit for any office and I wasn’t paying all that much attention. So why now? It should be obvious. In a word… Trump.

Donald J. Trump, in the face of multiple attempts by the statists to shut him down, has emerged not as merely the “front runner” for the Republican nomination for President but as the ONLY MAN FOR THE JOB. (Give it up Nikki – you cannot win.) While more and more evidence surfaces demonstrating the 2020 election of Slo-Mo Joe was a total fraud.

The bottom line here is if things keep going the way they are going there is NO WAY Biden can win in November. More than anything else – the statists NUMBER ONE PRIORITY is to keep the ball of destruction going and that means putting their man in the oval office. So whose name keeps popping up? Michael “Michelle” Obama. S/he has enough name recognition to provide the plausibility the statists need to make yet another win in 2024 fly… barely.

Personally, I think the statists will need  to scrounge a whole lot more dead voters to pull this one off. Trump’s campaign is quickly turning into a juggernaut. This does NOT mean we can just sit back and watch the show. WE the People need to get involved. Moreover WE need to get out and VOTE – but that’s not all.


Better yet +2, +3 and more. If you’re here in Virginia, save this graphic to your phone:

If you live in another state, you can do something similar. Email me if you need help. I’ll even post it to this website if you like.

The point is to encourage as many citizens as possible to register and vote. It is just a start but it IS a start.

Wake up! The left is on the move. They are in the final stretch. November is WIN/LOSE for either side. If the statists win, we may never recover. If WE the People win – we stand a chance to reclaim our nation. WE cannot afford to lose this one.

YES!!! Virginia Democrats PASS Legislation BANNING Semi-Automatic Firearms!

Have I gone CRAZY? WHY am I excited about this?

Think about it. This is an election year – a BIG one and the idiots in theHouse of Delegates AND most likely the Senate have just handed us this election on a silver platter.

Virginia House Passes Bill To Ban Semi-Automatic Firearms


Remember the 2A Sanctuary movement just before Covid hit? You ain’t seen nothin yet! There is NO WAY these fools will get away with this. WHAT? Do you think we will all just walk up and turn in our guns? Fat chance!

Okay, let’s settle down here. I, for one, am not about to shoot anybody. Let’s get real. So what COULD happen?

Well, let’s suppose the Senate fools really are stupid enough to pass this garbage. It goes to the Governor. I doubt very, VERY much if Younkin would even consider it but, HEY! it’s politics so who knows?

Moving into tickles and grins territory, say Younkin all of a sudden feels very RINO-like and signs the damned thing. Now what? It will immediately be challenged in court. While I’m not sure how far it would get kicked up until it gets shot down, I’m reasonably confident it WOULD get the boot.


Back here in the Commonwealth, WE the PEOPLE are mobilizing. We ain’t gonna wait for no black-robed self-proclaimed “demi-gods” to grace us with their decision. It would be the 2A Sanctuary Movement – Part II on STEROIDS.

NO, There would be NO “Civil War”

At least I’m not seeing it. WHY? Simply because there is no need for such foolishness. I will NOT predict what might happen should the gun grabbers start going door to door in search of “contraband”. I doubt if the outcome would be pretty BUT, I see little chance of that happening. How little? Maybe about the same chance as my finding a winning $3 Billion lottery ticket in my Captain Crunch with Boo Berries.

The Bottom Line

Maybe I’m getting all excited for a nothing burger. Only time will tell. What I can say is I do love seeing the statists aiming fully-automatic bazookas at their  own feet.  I can only hope they follow through because I see this as a wake-up call for us citizens. Let’s face it, we’ve been so lethargic lately some of us need a big toe up our bums to see if we are still breathing.

No matter what, my plan is to do whatever I can to get citizens to vote. Goodness knows I’m hoping they will vote FOR liberty.

Hit & Run Quickie: Tim Kaine – Who DO You Represent?

Don’t bother with your  stock answer – dig deep, In your case I’ll settle for the layer just under you skin.

Seriously. What exactly have you done about Joe Biden’s obvious inability to piece together a simple, coherent thought? I know, I know – those who live in glass houses – BUT as the Junior U. S. Senator representing the Commonwealth of Virginia – you OWE it to us to step up and speak up. Don’t bother doing now you are begging for votes. Too  little, too late.

Odie? You decide
Tim Kaine
Tim Kaine or

Let me ask you this: IF Biden were impeached… are you solidly behind him? I thought so. While you supposedly graduated from law school and I have never even visited one, I have read the Constitution, you know, the founding document laying out the basic law of our land? It says impeachment is the accusation. The trial is held in the Senate to determine guilt. I was always taught a man is innocent until proven guilty.  I suspect YOU on the other hand, would never be bothered by facts or evidence. You would vote for acquittal no matter what. Articulate how I ‘m mistaken. Onward…

What have you done about the MILLIONS of Illegal Aliens flooding this nation? Forget about action. I have yet to hear a single word from you on this. Nothing.  To whom do you owe your duty?

What have you done about the J6 political prisoners? Last I brought this up to you, you spouted nothing but nonsense. My letter to you said NOTHING about ANYBODY’S guilt or innocence. Rather, my concern was about their treatment as detainees – citizens who have been arrested, charged, and denied their human right to humane treatment, much less their constitutional rights to a speedy trial, etc.

Instead you wrote about how certain Senators ought to be investigated and how terrible “insurrection” is. I guess nobody informed you how NOT ONE of these J6 political prisoners has EVER been charged with insurrection. While I think I remember some prosecutor pulling “conspiracy” out of his magic hat concerning one or more Oath Keepers, I doubt very much if even that garbage would hold up in any unbiased court of law.

All this is just on the surface. I’m sure if I were to dig down, I’d find where time and time again, you’ve sided with your  handlers – your party bosses or their bosses – and the democrat party line rather than with the citizens you are supposed to be representing.

Go ahead Odie – say it – I don’t like you – I never have. True that. Lemme tell you a story…

Several years ago, we lived on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. With our home we inherited an aging pool so we looked up a fellow who could tell us whether it could be reasonably restored. Interesting guy. Says he knew Joe Biden from way back. Now this guy was not a democrat but he says Joe took a liking to him. In fact, my guy told me, Joe was one of those guys you could enjoy a beer with.

Now I don’t think much of Joe Biden either, but, as with you, it’s not personal. If I were to run across you in a bar, we might well enjoy a beer together. Just like my pool guy, that doesn’t count for an excuse for your donkey doo. It’s not personal. As far as liberty goes, you are and likely always be a statist. We are not the same – not even close.

It’s not personal Timmy – not at all. You’ve bought the statist line of BS hook, line, and sinker. You will always choose the State over the People you were elected to represent. For that reason, you must go.


My Local Republican Party – “Joiner’s Remorse”

Don’t hold this against be but in a weak moment at the “Mass Meeting” (barely filling a small room but 10X larger than the average Biden rally) I had a moment of weakness. I filed an application to join the local party and now I’m having second thoughts. Big time. Why?

Lemme tell ya – it is NOT because of the people involved. Near as I can tell they are all very good people. What’s wrong is their focus. I’d already slapped down my application and fee (which will be repeated in June because that is when their annual membership dues come due – eye roll) before I realized what should have been obvious: this local committee (party nub, clique, whatever) sole purpose is to elect Republicans. That’s it. Okay well, they do have a scholarship program and I suppose they have an additional interest in expanding the local party – but all that goes back to putting Republicans in office.

Now I have no problem with this per se, but my own purpose, my own goals are somewhat different. For one thing, I don’t give a whit what brand of politician holds any particular office. My question is are they for liberty or agin it? If they want to start and fund more government – they are agin liberty. Plain and simple. Don’t skew my words – I do NOT advocate anarchy – and I DO believe some government is necessary. But we’ve lost sight of the meaning of limited government.

To this end, I’m far more interested in holding our elected officials accountable. I’d rather put their feet to the fire to entice them to make what we’ve already got in place work or get rid of it. With getting rid of most government entities and programs  taking top priority. Lots of politicians talk about limiting government, few, VERY few follow through. Such is never in the best interest in the Party and thus takes a back seat.

My secondary interests this year is actually on par with the Republican Party as a whole – get Republicans elected. This year. That “red wave” the pundits so slovenly talk about is needed this year more than ever but talk is cheap. We need action. We need results. We need voters.

The problem with this little committee is it seems all they are  prepared to do is put up signs and make phone calls – more or less. Sure some will sell raffle tickets to benefit the scholarship fund. Some will raise money for candidates. What I do not see is any interest in getting more citizens involved. For me this is basic. As long as we have a disinterested and disheartened citizenship, we will see lackluster election returns.

Next month’s meeting will be a week later than usual – why? Because they meet on the first Tuesday of each month and in March of this year that day falls on Primary Day. Was there ANY talk about getting voters to the polls? No. Not one word was said about such things.

So… remorse. I like these people but I feel my time is better spent posting here. If I can get rolling on signing citizens up to vote all the better but realistically, I could register every qualified citizen in my county and not make a drop in the bucket overall.


The GOOD news is, I may have cone across an idea to foment widespread registration. Our new county Registrar was there – she’s my new boss, election official-wise. We’ve been talking about getting citizens registered and she seems enthusiastic about this. I keep asking about registration forms. She mentioned how “easy” it is to register online. While I’m not so sure about that, one thing did strike me – a QR-code. I did the quick graphic below using Canva.

The idea of the QR code is to put it on display so citizens can scan it rather than type in a URL. Of course,  shared digitally, this graphic can be linked directly  to the web page as this one is so no scanning is needed.
