The Memorial Day holiday gives Americans a chance to honor those in the US Armed Forces who fought and died to protect our freedom.
Unfortunately, the wars created today no longer serve a purpose other than to advance the interest of power-mad globalists and their Deep State Swamp functionaries who control our country. The endless wars also funnel taxpayer money into the pockets of the military industrial complex and the military. The latest budget battle excludes the military. Of course! That’s to be expected. Defense spending goes up no matter what. Continue reading →
I put his video up for some local veterans because after watching every major news network on the morning of Vietnam War Veterans Day this year, including our local newspaper, there was not one mention about our special day. Made me so angry, I created the slideshow from photos sent to me over the years or posted on websites I had back then. Our average age is around 73 now and I wonder in about 15 or 20 years when we are all gone if we will be once again forgotten. To my brothers in arms, Welcome Home. Never Forget. ~ American Veteran
No doubt America has had many flaws. But the brilliance of this nation is the foundation the founders laid whereby we could correct these flaws.
With another Memorial Day upon us, we may consider the question: Is America still worth fighting for?
On November 21, 1864, President Lincoln wrote to a Mrs. Bixby of Massachusetts, who had lost five sons in the Civil War.
“I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom.” Continue reading →
Republicans must be “hammering” away at illegal immigration as “economic warfare” against working – and middle-class Americans, Sen. J.D. Vance (R-OH) told Breitbart News.

In an exclusive interview with SiriusXM Patriot’s Breitbart News, Vance called on Republicans to discuss illegal immigration as a fixture of “the cheap labor lobby” which seeks to inflate the United States labor market to drive down wages and employ an underclass of cheaper foreign workers with little-to-no bargaining power.

You first heard it while watching courtroom dramas on television. Perhaps at some point in your own life, you raised your right hand and affirmed these familiar words yourself.
“Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help you God?”
Sadly, today’s cultural conviction is that truth is relative, personal rather than universal.
It is as if veracity is a tailor-made vest, form-fitting for you, but not exactly the fashion or fit for your neighbor, who is free to determine his own truth … and pay a tailor to design his own “veracity vest.” Continue reading →
Virtually every manifestation of evil involves a desire to dominate and control.
To many people, the world seems to make less and less sense with each passing day. Values we once cherished and that bound civil society together face daily bombardment. Offensive things are routinely said and done today in ways intended to inflame and divide. Freedoms we took for granted – freedoms of thought, speech, press, religion – are under relentless assault as intrusive government and cancel culture gain ground. Continue reading →
An article on the Epoch Times recently noted that “Biden has received $10 million in payments from China, foreign interests… President Biden is being accused of money laundering and influence peddling. This is the latest chapter in the Hunter Biden saga, where the president’s son was suspected of selling his father’s influence to foreign governments and businesses.” Needless to say, what pretends to be our “news” media has zero interest in this. After all, their assigned task is to bury this as deep as possible, not to report it. So they run interference for the Deep State by reporting instead some Republican congressman from New York who has done something wrong – a crime that pales in comparison to what Joe the influence peddler and his son and brother are doing–and have been doing for decades now.

Democrats will block a border security bill until American citizens accept more poor migrants into their workplaces and neighborhoods, Texas Democrat Rep. Barbara Lee told a GOP-led hearing on Tuesday.
“You’re not going to get border security coming first,” Lee told a GOP-picked witness, Rodney Scott, the former chief of the U.S. Border Patrol, who urged legislators to first protect the border before opening up more legal routes for migrants.
You need to be able to balance it. You will not accept a border security and recognizing pathways to legal entry [bill]? … When the late [Sen. ] John McCain, we had a very strong comprehensive bill — and it had border security and the legal pathway.
Lee’s frank statement exposed the core politics of migration: Democrats — and their bipartisan business and media allies — will block any border security bill unless the GOP votes to let them legally import more poor migrant workers, consumers, renters, and poor people who will turn to government agencies for help.

It has become fashionable among the intellectuals and bleeding hearts who work in newsrooms to rail against the death penalty. We must have compassion, they argue. Lethal injection is so barbaric, so cruel, so unusual, the process so rife with in-exactitude and the possibility of human error.
Better to let every murderer live, goes their reasoning, than to execute a single innocent man.
To which I consider the stone-cold murder of 29-year-old Lauren Heike, a Scottsdale woman who went for a hike on April 28 and ended up stabbed 15 times, and shake my head in disgust.
You want to argue against the death penalty? Don’t emote for some poor killer who went into heart palpitations or felt pain in his final moments because the three-drug cocktail took too long to work. Continue reading →
There’s no way for any true justice to prevail in any case, with Merrick Garland putting his thumb on the scales to balance everything in the Democrat Commies’ favor, even in the face of blatant, obvious wrongdoing and criminal acts. Much the same situation exists in the FBI that is currently rife with commies, after Obama purged its ranks of conservatives in 2012.
America is being ruled, not governed, by a group of power-hungry Marxist-Maoist communists who care more about their party, gaining raw power and forcing their anti-American ideology on all Americans than they care about freedom, liberty and America Herself. Continue reading →
It’s time for your favorite political theater production – ‘The Debt Ceiling Game Show’
Dang, another rerun!
The querulous and quasi-demented Joe Biden continues to play an obtuse game with House Leader Kevin McCarthy. Biden can’t seem to understand that spending cuts are necessary to parry the ever-growing national debt, or at least keep it from worsening. The Democrat Party’s reckless spending under Biden has led to runaway inflation. More spending will lead to more inflation. Biden can’t or won’t accept that. Continue reading →
DHS released its monthly border encounters report for April this week, the last full month before the termination of Title 42 on May 11. Encounters of illegal aliens along the border and at ports of entry were back above 200,000 for the first time since December.
While border encounters have dipped slightly over the first few months of 2023, encounters exceeding 200,000 have become commonplace under the Biden Administration. April was the 13th month since Pres. Biden’s inauguration that total encounters exceeded 200,000. Continue reading →
On the latest round of the Republicans’ dangerous game.
What can you say about a week in American politics when the major breakthrough was that the two parties agreed to stop talking about talking, in order to actually start talking? In Washington, where, for months, President Biden and congressional Republicans have been hurtling toward a confrontation over the G.O.P.’s refusal to raise the debt ceiling without major concessions from Democrats on federal spending, the beginning of formal negotiations aimed at averting a disastrous government default counted as big news. For the rest of the world, it was merely a sign of the capital’s extreme dysfunction, and a reminder that America’s messed-up politics constitutes a geopolitical crisis as well as a domestic one.
On Tuesday, Biden reinforced the point by announcing that he would cut short an important overseas trip to the Pacific region in order to return to Washington for the debt talks. With default looming – coming, perhaps, as soon as early June, according to the Treasury Department – this seemed like a politically advisable course, but the optics were nonetheless terrible. The President will still attend the G-7 meeting in Hiroshima, Japan, but skip his planned stops in Australia and Papua New Guinea. Both visits had been designed to showcase the U.S.’s top foreign-policy priority – shoring up American alliances in the region as part of the growing confrontation with China. Continue reading →
CBP has released its statistics on Border Patrol apprehensions and CBP overall encounters at the Southwest border for the month of April and, not surprisingly, both surged last month even while Title 42 expulsions dropped. That does not bode well for the administration with Title 42 having some ended on May 11 just as “travel season” at the U.S.-Mexico line gears up. Expect some drop-off in apprehensions when the May numbers come out next month as illegal migrants — and more importantly their smugglers — are still trying to figure out all the loopholes in Biden’s latest border regime.

Calls among House Republicans to begin impeachment proceedings against Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas have grown after a week of chaotic and record-breaking illegal migration activity at the southern border.
Several members of the House Judiciary Committee, the committee responsible for conducting impeachments, say they support moving forward with the process.
“He should be impeached as soon as humanly possible,” Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) told reporters on Tuesday.
Rep. Ben Cline (R-VA) told Breitbart News, “I support beginning impeachment hearings. I’ve said that to chairman [Jim] Jordan. My constituents think it’s long overdue, and I feel as though once we lay out the facts for the American people and for my colleagues in the House, it’ll be inevitable.” Continue reading →
