It’s a scary time in the United States right now, and it doesn’t matter if you loved former President Trump, or despised him.
The FBI’s raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida scares the heck out of me, and should worry you, as well.
One either has to believe Trump is the most despicable man in the world, and the gauntlet has been intentionally placed before him, since he first came down the steps in Trump Tower; or, one understands that he was, and continues to be, a very real threat to Washington’s establishment – on both sides of the aisle.
If it’s not Trump, there will be another conservative, pro-American populist who will be elected.
It’s really a no-brainer, and Trump brought into the open the ugly underbelly of our national operation.
I voted for Trump, and think he did a heck of a job while President. I didn’t vote for him because I thought he would be a saint.
He certainly isn’t one, but please point out to me a saintly man or woman who has made his or her life in politics at the national level.
Better yet, as the Bible says, “He who is without sin cast the first stone.”
It’s almost stupid for me to try and take up for Trump in this space, because any clear-minded American can see, or should at least want to see, what is happening in the good ol’ USA.
Secured border to open border
FBI raids on Trump supporters, no raids on Democrats.
Hunter’s laptop covered up, and Hillary’s deleted emails get a pass.
Take the politics out of the situation, and ANYONE should be able to see what is happening.
The fact that American citizens arrested in the wake of Jan. 6 remain in filthy jails, while illegal aliens, including felons and terrorists, cross freely into our country, should speak volumes.
China literally laughing in our faces and at our current leaders, and our new dependence on foreign oil, wasn’t the case a couple of years ago.
I fear that something bad, something historic, is about to happen in our country.
Our woke leaders are crippling our military capabilities, and dividing us in order to keep power.
To what end? For what reason?
When conservatives fight back, and it actually starts to get really ugly, then the liberal press and far left leaders will just say, “See, we told you that was the number one domestic threat.”
Our greatness is being diminished by inflation, and way too much dependence on countries that have no interest in our well being.
He, her, it, she, OMG are you a girl or a boy or a mishmash of strange DNA, who may or may not be able to get pregnant.
It’s a bunch of hogwash.
The left, and the old GOP are doing everything they can, with the help of big tech and the left wing media, to keep Trump off the ballot.
He scares the hell out of them, and not for the reason they want you to believe.
Trump, and anyone like him, are a real threat to their power.
At some point, each of us needs to ask, “What will be my place in our country in the future?”
Seriously, answer that question honestly.
I would love to see Trump, or Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis take on any Democrat under the following voting conditions:
• Two weeks of in-person early voting
• One day of in-person election day voting
• Absentee voting the way it used to be
• Photo ID required (You can’t do a damn thing in this country without an ID, and voting, a sacred right, should require no less)
Who do you think would win?
Seriously. Be honest with yourself.
Also, I’m all for being good stewards of what God gave us, but the billions spent on global warming (oops, sorry, climate change) is the biggest waste of taxpayers’ money and anyone, absolutely anyone, who looks at the countries on this planet, understands that wasting our tax dollars in this manner is ludicrous.
I’ve shared this a number of times, and I’ll share it again today.
My grandfather always said our country would implode without a single shot being fired.
If you take that literally, you would have to call my grandfather a liar because our streets are filled with gunfire by thugs.
If you take the greater meaning of what my grandfather said, you would understand he meant we will destroy ourselves.
The constant attacks against Trump and those who support him, the whittling away of our rights, the massive expansion of the IRS, the attacks on our Constitution, our open borders, the weakening of our military, and our insatiable appetite to waste billions of dollars on global warming (oops, sorry, climate change), knowing it won’t affect anything, except the pocketbooks of a relative few, as well as hundreds upon hundreds of similar occurrences, eat away at us daily.
A brief laugh at future (current) reality
The following is funny on the surface, but scary as hell when you realize it’s already happening:
A man calls Pizza Hut to order a pizza …
CALLER: Is this Pizza Hut?
GOOGLE: No sir, it’s Google Pizza.
CALLER: I must have dialed a wrong number, sorry.
GOOGLE: No sir, Google bought Pizza Hut last month.
CALLER: OK. I would like to order a pizza.
GOOGLE: Do you want your usual, sir?
CALLER: My usual? You know me?
GOOGLE: According to our caller ID data sheet, the last 12 times you called you ordered an extra-large pizza with three cheeses, sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms, and meatballs on a thick crust.
CALLER: Super! That’s what I’ll have.
GOOGLE: May I suggest that this time you order a pizza with ricotta, arugula, sun-dried tomatoes and olives on a whole wheat gluten-free thin crust?
CALLER: What? I don’t want a vegetarian pizza!
GOOGLE: Your cholesterol is not good, sir.
CALLER: How do you know that?
GOOGLE: Well, we cross-referenced your home phone number with your medical records. We have the result of your blood tests for the last seven years.
CALLER: Okay, but I do not want your rotten vegetarian pizza! I already take medication for my cholesterol.
GOOGLE: Excuse me sir, but you have not taken your medication regularly. According to our database, you purchased only a box of 30 cholesterol tablets once at Lloyds Pharmacy, four months ago.
CALLER: I bought more from another Pharmacy.
GOOGLE: That doesn’t show on your credit card statement.
CALLER: I paid in cash.
GOOGLE: But you did not withdraw enough cash according to your bank statement.
CALLER: I have other sources of cash.
GOOGLE: That doesn’t show on your latest tax returns unless you bought them using an undeclared income source, which is against the law!
CALLER: What the heck!
GOOGLE: I’m sorry sir, we use such information only with the sole intention of helping you.
CALLER: Enough already! I’m sick to death of Google, Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp and all the others. I’m going to an island without the internet, TV, where there is no phone service and no one to watch me, or spy on me.
GOOGLE: I understand sir, but you need to renew your passport first. It expired six weeks ago.
Until next week, have a good week!
