Americans Are Mad as Hell and Aren’t Going to Take It Anymore!



Coming out of the COVID years of isolation, the accepted decibel level of social discourse has been significantly raised. You hear the angry shouts, the name calling, the generalized attacks, the unreasonable and selfish demands, and even violent threats and attacks. The United States is far from united. It is fractured, and far too many of its citizens are angry and showing it in ways that strike at the very core of our freedoms and our cultural values and norms.

“I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not going to take it anymore!” That immortal refrain was yelled by anchorman Howard Beale in the 1976 film Network. It seems that the statement is just as relevant forty-seven years after its release. The only difference is that more people are yelling, and those you may be yelling at are just as likely to be yelling back.

Some are angry and offended by how they are treated while those supposedly offending them are just at livid at their overreaction. Some shout demands for reparations while others swear at anyone even considering giving in to such demands as a new “racism.” If your religion won’t stop calling my behavior a sin, then it’s your faith that is racist and must be rejected or changed. One group demands more police officers; another wants to defund them. Tolerance is no longer enough! You are expected to approve of their lifestyle and their pronouns. Yes, both sides are angry, and you don’t have to look far for explosive examples.

Before being killed by responding officers, Audrey Hale, a 28-year-old female self-identified as a transgender male, fatally shot three students and three adults at the Covenant School in Nashville, TN. More will become known about her motivation in coming weeks, but her mass shooting came after far-left extremists in the area had threatened to injure or kill lawmakers in Tennessee as revenge for the state banning the medical transitioning of minors.

Several now-deleted tweets had suggested that Tennessee legislators should have their addresses released. One tweet claimed, “This is what genocide looks like.” Another warned, “These people forcing youth to detransition have names and addresses.” Sadly, another threatened the use of a deadly toxin, “You let me know where I can get my hands on ricin then we’re in business.” Certainly, such angry statements do not always result in deadly actions. But there is no question that in the wrong mental state and with the right weapons, such statements can feed the justification for deadly attacks.

Thankfully, as a result of widespread criticism, the Trans Radical Activist Network (TRAN) has agreed to cancel their April 1st “Trans Day of Vengeance” rally in Washington, D.C. They attempted to play victim by claiming that the cancelation was due to “astronomical amounts of hate from the world.” After the Nashville school shooting, such a rally and the counter-response would most certainly have racheted up the emotions and anger of all involved.

Those angry at the increase in violence directed at our schools must be rejoicing at Senator Rick Scott’s demand for legislation: “We need to consider an automatic death penalty for school shooters. Life in prison is not enough for the deranged monsters who go into our schools to kill innocent kids & educators.” After the growing number of shootings, parents aren’t just fearful. They are angry and ready to hire armed school security guards and support prompt justice for those who commit such crimes.

On far too many of our campuses, some student groups have shouted down professors and guest speakers they do not agree with. Steven Shaviro, a Wayne State University professor, was suspended with pay after posting on Facebook that it is “ far more admirable to kill a racist, homophobic speaker than it is to shout them down.” He did add that he was not “advocating violating federal and state criminal codes,” but such comments ferment anger and the potential of attacks. Thankfully, the incident was reported to law enforcement agencies for review. Many invited conservative speakers are canceling their speeches rather than risk facing an angry mob.

And now, the coup de gras is added to the fireworks! Former President Donald Trump and leading Republican candidate for 2024 has been indicted by a New York Grand Jury. The result is predictable and adds fuel to the fire. Some will say that it is about time, and others will feel it is a politically motivated travesty that makes them livid.

Stephen Kruiser in his op-ed column summed up the growing anger of many on the right, “After the antics of Bragg’s pet grand jury, I would hope that Trump is in a flamethrower mood and ready to go after the corrupt system with more verve than ever before.” And of course, the aggressive attacks in support of Trump being convicted and sent to jail are leveled from the left. Keith Olbermann considred Trump’s indictment worthy of celebration, “Merry Trumpmas!”

In America today, demonstrating is not enough; we need riots in the street. Dialogue is dismissed. Why talk to people you are learning to hate? Is it no wonder why people are buying guns. People are afraid to go into their crime-ridden cities. They’re angry about what is happening to their country, their states, their local communities! They are mad as hell, and they don’t want to take it anymore. They want change.

Pamela Paul’s column in the New York Times is titled, “The Most Profound Loss on Campus Isn’t Free Speech. It’s Listening.” Pamela is not a conservatives but fears that we may have lost the ability to listen and learn from our “enemies.” She suggests a new perspective in our angry world, “What happens if you assume your political opponent isn’t evil — if you even know that he’s not?” What happens is that you may just learn something, both about your opponent and about yourself.

Pamela provides a worthy challenge. It’s time to tone down the anger and shame aggressive and destructive actions on both sides of our divide. It’s time we learn how to disagree without being quite so angry or disagreeable. We need a little more loving one’s enemies and a lot less flamethrowing!

Lawfare, Coercion, and Intimidation at the U.S Department of Injustice

Th DOJ fraudulently claims this mission: “Uphold the rule of law, to keep our country safe, and to protect civil rights”



Lawfare is impacting society in horrendous ways, many of which ultimately impact your life and your experiences. What is lawfare? Derived from combining the words “law” and “warfare,” it is the employment of legal approaches to delegitimize, damage, or destroy an opposing party or to hinder their ability to employ their own legal rights.

While lawfare has been used among nations seeking to resolve military conflicts, hamper an opponent’s strategies and tactics, or accuse others of serious crimes, here I am only focusing on domestic issues.

The U.S. system of justice has become overtly contentious, straying from the original mission and objective of our legal system. Unfortunately, the U.S. Department of Justice adopted lawfare tactics en mass during the Obama Administration, under the sordid leadership of Attorney General Eric Holder.

Long Term Damage

Lawfare was employed against individuals whom the DOJ had targeted, to damage or disparage their character, waste their money and time, or triumph over them for public relations purposes. Today the DOJ persecutes, coerces, badgers, and prosecutes Americans, mainly conservatives, time after time.

The agency’s conviction rate is 93%, or 14 out of 15 cases. Yet, in countless instances, DOJ lawyers pursuing cases do not have sufficient evidence or even legal grounds. How do they prevail? Repeatedly, these government attorneys intimidate defendants to confess to “process” crimes, much like what the special prosecutors under Robert Mueller did with many of Donald Trump’s associates.

If no real crimes existed, DOJ attorneys, well-versed in lawfare, pushed for prosecution in one way or another, HUNDREDS of times. Conviction represents career bonus points for eager DOJ attorneys.

Garland: Corrupt Beyond Belief

Bill Barr, appointed by Donald Trump, was utterly corrupt – a swamp creature of the highest order. He sat on the Hunter Biden revelations. He ignored voluminous evidence of worldwide bribes taken by Joe Biden. He covered for Jeffrey Epstein’s clients, and likely lied about Epstein’s demise. He had insider knowledge of the numerous bogus plots against Trump and said and did nothing.

U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland, now head of the DOJ, has raised lawfare to justice-destroying heights. The DOJ has become the chief agency of injustice. Under Garland, Catholics, parents concerned about the education and welfare of their children, peaceful protesters, and legions of others have had their rights violated.

We know that both the FBI and DOJ have sought to lay heavy crap on Rudy Giuliani, Matt Gaetz, Don Trump, Jr., Jared Kushner, many of Trump’s advisors, and so many others.

Injustice on Demand

Garland’s DOJ implements lawfare in virtually everything it does. The agency has no qualms about incarcerating people for indeterminate lengths, staging show trials, bleeding defendants financially dry, and threatening them with jail sentences unless they capitulate. These are perilous times, especially for anyone who is opposed to the Biden Administration or speaks up in ways that the DOJ does not approve.

It is not difficult with the vast databases to undertake intense snooping and other nefarious methods. In record time, the “Department of Injustice” can ruin a person’s reputation, even after a lifetime of accuracy in their work, in their claims, and in how they comport themselves.

The DOJ can destroy reputations in less than 24 hours, particularly if that person is vulnerable with relatives or children. They raid homes with guns drawn when a simple knock on the door would suffice. The Democrats of today, can get to anyone they want, and will shake their targets to the core.

The GOP Must Win in 2024 or We’re Doomed

Everything described above should have no place within the U.S. Department of Justice. Lawfare should have no place. Meanwhile, the DOJ fraudulently claims that its mission is to “Uphold the rule of law, to keep our country safe, and to protect civil rights.” In actuality, it fails miserably on all three counts.

Claiming independence and impartiality, the agency states, “We work each day to earn the public’s trust by following the facts and the law wherever they may lead, without prejudice or improper influence.” Yes, Hunter Biden will verify that. The DOJ claims, “Our employees value differences in people and in ideas and treat everyone with fairness, dignity, and compassion.” Not exactly.

The only tenable solution to vanquish the runaway DOJ and their insidious practice of lawfare, intimidation, and coercion is for a Republican to win the 2024 presidential election, replace Garland, and quickly reverse the serious damage that has been done to our nation.

If Democrats successfully re-cheat their way to victory, may God help us all.

Do you feel like you wake up every day to a bad dream and then struggle with the fact that your nightmare is actually reality in America today? Thankfully, the polls of Democrats and Republicans alike are sending a clear message—we’ve had enough of dementia Joe. He is often incoherent with or without his teleprompter. After speaking, he consistently wanders waiting to be guided to an exit. He tries to kiss and grope women who fall into his meandering web. Heaven help him if he would actually have to handle an open press conference with unscripted questions. The man seldom even works; he majors in rest and vacations.

And yet, somehow, Biden manages to keep making executive orders and decisions that move America further into “progressive” darkness. Obviously, somebody other than the President is managing the puppet strings and moving America faster and further into institutionalizing leftist policies.

Fearful of Biden facing Trump in the 2024 election, the Democrats have managed to tie up the leading Republican candidate with 91 indictments. Their hope is that the legal quagmire and trials will restrict his ability to mount an effective campaign. Be clear. The Democrats have one goal—keep Trump out of office and hopefully in jail.

Speaking of jail, where are the investigative reporters unraveling the crimes of “the Big Guy” Biden. We have recorded statements by Joe bragging about bribing Ukrainian leaders with US funds conditional on firing the Ukrainian district attorney looking into prosecuting Burisma. Vice President Joe Biden stopped the man whose investigation could have implicated his son, Hunter Biden. The Democrats keep claiming that Hunter’s problems have nothing to do with the President.

Unfortunately for Joe, in spite of such claims more and more evidence is mounting that the President and the Biden family benefited from Hunter’s influence peddling. Hunter Biden’s email to his daughter Naomi Biden that recently became public makes clear the father’s involvement. The email has been verified by the Washington Post and is clearly damning.

According to Hunter’s statement in that email, President Joe Biden demanded and received payment for his influence. It reads, “I hope you all can do what I did and pay for everything for this entire family for 30 years. It’s really hard. But don’t worry unlike Pop I won’t make you give me half your salary.”

This email and related information could have been made public two years ago. It could have impacted the 2020 election. If the House of Representatives initiates an impeachment inquiry, more of this information will be front and center and hard for the left-leaning media to avoid covering. With Joe Biden using aliases to send hundreds of additional incriminating emails, the evidence is just now coming to light.

If Biden is innocent of any wrongdoing, he should be cooperating and welcoming an investigation. Instead, he has already created a “war room” to be ready to fight any impeachment inquiry. Even with an inquiry, it’s unlikely that the Senate would have the votes to Impeach the President. But the more evidence that comes out, the more Democrats behind the scenes will likely be asking Biden to step down. Republicans did it with Nixon, and the Democrats would be wise to do it with Biden rather than risk him running again, losing, and taking their majority down with him.

The President’s future legal problems are not the only thing that is wreaking havoc on the American society. There is sexual confusion that is enraging many voters on the right and the left. In many states, biological men are claiming to be women and being allowed to compete in sporting events and winning against biological women. Politicians and even judges are refusing to define what a woman is. Most of us are pretty sure we know!

One meme that has been circulating makes the difference very clear. The world population is 8,030,610,062. People born from women: 8,030,610,062. People born from men: 0. They go on to suggest, “Feel free to fact check.” If men who call themselves women want to compete in sports, let them compete against other men instead of forcing their way into women’s locker rooms to live a lie.

In America today, they are not content limiting sexual confusion to adults. Many leftists are condoning trans surgery of young children to “change their sex” without parental approval. Schools can’t give an aspirin without parental approval, but in some states, children can decide to have irreversible surgery that mutilates their bodies. The parents are still responsible for caring for their children when they have to pick up the pieces from this child abuse.

Supporters call it “gender affirming care,” and it’s not all that rare. From 2016-2020, the American Medical Association reports 3,678 gender affirming surgeries done on children twelve to eighteen years of age. Columbia University has found that 3,315 children had breast surgery and 405 had genital surgery at a young age. This is not “care” of any kind! If anyone wants to do this to their body, wait until they are an adult and pay for it themselves.

If this is not enough, we have an administration claiming we have a secure border when millions continue to stream across our border in record numbers. Even sanctuary cities like New York have had enough. America takes pride in welcoming legal immigrants. It’s time to close down the flood of illegals.

Add to that the dismal performance in public schools around the country. Our kids are falling behind, and Democrats, coveting the support of teacher unions, refuse to even consider school choice. Minority parents want it, and Biden and his administration stand in the way.

It’s clear that America is hard to recognize as the country we once loved and cherished. It’s rapidly becoming a leftist loony bin in need of an intervention! Let’s hope that comes in November of 2024.
