Category Archives: Point Blank

POINT BLANK was generally a single image with or without text. Many times – an image is worth a thousand words, but as time has gone on – it has become more important to understand WHAT is actually going on – and it is time to reactivate the POINT BLANK category.  Our contributing authors are too on-the-money with their abilities. They each ask, ” – WHO is Watching YOU?” – and they are Point Blank with their knowledge and talents But in the end – what is being done to all Americans – ALL of us – are being WATCHED!

Memorial Day or More-War-ial Day?

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

Is America still worth fighting for?

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.

He penned,

“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.”

Hayworth: Durham Report carries no consequences for offenders

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

Reed: Evil Is Rising, but Despair Is Not an Option

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

Benson: The Family Of Influence Peddlers

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.

Leibowitz: Hiker’s Slaying DEMANDS Killer’s Quick-End

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

Smith: Make America’s Communists Swing in the Wind

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

Impeaching Mayorkas Gains Momentum Among Key House Republicans

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

Danger Within: The Government Is Turning America Into a Constitution-Free Zone

“There are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations.” ~ James Madison

How far would you really go to secure the nation’s borders in the so-called name of national security?

Would you give the government limitless amounts of money? Surround the entire country with concrete walls and barbed wire? Erect a high-tech, virtual wall of AI-powered surveillance cameras and drones that does a better job of imprisoning those within its boundaries than keeping intruders out? Empower border police to trample on the rights of anyone who crosses their path, including legal citizens? Continue reading

Benson: The Border Crisis Looms – What About Mexico’s Political Past?

The resolution that has kept our Southern border from being completely inundated with illegal aliens is about to expire. And the illegals will swarm across our border like a swarm of locusts and the Biden regime, for all its big talk about the border not being open, along with all the other lies they have told, will look the other way and do nothing about it, all the while continuing to tell us they have the situation under control. Anyone believing them has to believe in the tooth fairy as well. Continue reading

Smith: A Tidal Wave of Humanity On America’s Borders

We are watching the ongoing madness on the southern border with some great anger and consternation, as I wonder once more just what will it take, to make Americans decide it is finally up to us, and us alone, to handle our border security in the absence of any real and sincere attempts by the Biden regime. This is a purposeful, manufactured crisis, that taken in conjunction with our economic crisis, is accelerating the ultimate collapse of American society.

In many ways, it almost seems as tho’ the American people’s will has already been broken and they have lost their soul, so beaten down by the ravages of one Democratic Party Communist assault after another.

If the American people do not soon regain an incredibly powerful will and the strength of mind and heart to do whatever it takes to save the country, I full well expect the country will drift along in a static status quo fashion that sees the nation overrun and overwhelmed, as we experience the consequences of a defacto capitulation of our own duties to ourselves, our families and America. ~ J.O.S.

Leibowitz: AI – Artificial, yes. Intelligent? We’ll get back to you!

Lately, every other news story is about artificial intelligence and how AI is going to take over the world.

No less an eminence than Elon Musk has warned: “One of the biggest risks to the future of civilization is AI. But AI is both positive or negative — it has great promise, great capability, but also with that comes great danger.”

Me, I call BS on such predictions — for now, at least. Why? Because I enlisted ChatGPT, the easiest way to interface with AI, as my co-author for this week’s column. Continue reading

The War on Free Speech Is Really a War on the Right to Criticize the Government

“Since when have we Americans been expected to bow submissively to authority and speak with awe and reverence to those who represent us? The constitutional theory is that we the people are the sovereigns, the state and federal officials only our agents. We who have the final word can speak softly or angrily. We can seek to challenge and annoy, as we need not stay docile and quiet.” ~ Justice William O. Douglas

Absolutely, there is a war on free speech.

To be more accurate, however, the war on free speech is really a war on the right to criticize the government.

Although the right to speak out against government wrongdoing is the quintessential freedom, every day in this country, those who dare to speak their truth to the powers-that-be find themselves censored, silenced or fired.

Indeed, those who run the government don’t take kindly to individuals who speak truth to power. Continue reading

Benson: Back to Business as Usual in Sodomy on the Potomac

In an article on it was noted that it seems to be back to business as usual in good old Sodomy on the Potomac. It seems as if (are you really surprised?) that now some of the “conservative” Republicans are suddenly not all that hot to investigate Biden family corruption as they were when running for election. Can anyone really be surprised that we are now getting back to business as usual in the great swamp?

It seems that the current agenda has now swung from investigating Biden family corruption to preventing a banking crisis as they promised us they would Many Republican voters are less than enthusiastic about this. They are getting upset that the Biden family corruption they were promised would be investigated is now on the way to being ignored! It would seem that except for talking a good fight, many conservatives are not really backing up the talk with meaningful action. Continue reading
