How the American Public Is Being Bamboozled by Joe Biden and the Democrats



American citizens enjoy being manipulated. They willingly accept the avalanche of lies that is thrown at them daily by the government, the Democratic Party, and the media. Here is an accounting of how we are being conned.

Perhaps the biggest con is the climate argument. Government policy in the U.S. and most of Europe is based on the erroneous belief that human beings can control the climate. This is pure nonsense that is contradicted by the facts. Contrary to frightening warnings from Al Gore and Greta Thunberg, the glaciers have not melted and the world has not come to an end. We are not experiencing a climate crisis. Biden’s attempt to eliminate fossil fuels is sending us into economic collapse. Our economy is dependent upon fossil fuels. A practical alternative does not exist and will not exist in the foreseeable future. The billions spent by the Biden administration to cure this nonexistent problem are an extravagant waste of taxpayer dollars.

The threat of horrific global warming was set in motion in 1972 by the UN-sponsored Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Its conclusions were based on faulty science that has been refuted by thousands of scientists, including the 31,000 physicists and physical chemists of the Global Warming Petition Project. These experts have stated that “there is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gases is causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth’s atmosphere and disruption of the Earth’s climate.” Go home Greta and leave us alone.

The Big Con in Washington is that Joe Biden is president. Biden is nothing more than an actor pretending to be president. The real decisions are being made by anonymous advisers in the White House. We don’t know for sure who is running our government except that it isn’t Joe Biden.

As far back as I can remember, we have been conned into believing that the Justice Department and the FBI are the protectors of our democratic system. False. Under the Biden presidency, the U.S. has a double standard for justice. Federal agencies are being weaponized to arrest, imprison, and otherwise crush anyone who leads opposition to Joe Biden’s government. “The FBI is now an organization solely focused on destroying the domestic enemies of the Democratic Party,” said talk show host Jesse Kelly. Republicans who have done nothing other than support Donald Trump have been persecuted and prosecuted. If you are conservative and expect to receive justice, you are in the wrong country.

The Democratic Party, which is responsible for an explosion in criminal activity throughout the nation, is trying to con citizens into believing that crime is not a major problem. New York Gov. Kathy Hochul insists that Americans’ rising fear about crime has been manufactured by “master manipulators” in a national conspiracy. “Safer places are the Democratic states,” she claimed. This is a complete con and an insult to the intelligence of anyone who has been watching the news.

On the social scale, a major con is the allegation that an individual can change his or her gender. “Society has accepted a destructive lie that you can create your own reality and define your own identity,” says author Ben Shapiro. “Transgender isn’t real,” says women’s advocate and author Kara Dansky. “It was simply made up. Words like gender identity don’t have any meaning. Every single human being is either a male person or a female person.”

“We don’t need science to prove what gender you are,” said North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson. “Go around the corner to the bathroom and drop your pants or whatever you’ve got on, and I can show you what you are.”

One of the most destructive cons is the argument, put forward by Critical Race Theory and Black Lives Matter, that all white people are racists. Portraying America as “an incurable mass of bigoted whites,” said Ben Shapiro, has become a national pastime. But is it true? Black America, says black author Shelby Steele, “no longer has the excuse of oppression. Without oppression—and it must be acknowledged that blacks are no longer oppressed in America—the group itself becomes automatically responsible for its inferiority and non-competitiveness.” It is much easier to avoid that responsibility, says Steele, “by arguing that whites should be responsible for our development.”

The systemic racism argument is a leftist canard that is poisoning America. “White institutional racism has disappeared from our society,” says author Scott Greer. “Black Americans now have every opportunity that white Americans have long enjoyed.” The term “systemic racism” has no meaning, says black economist Thomas Sowell. “I don’t think the people who use it have any clear idea what they’re saying. Their purpose served is to have other people cave in,” Sowell concludes. “America is not a racist country,” agrees black political activist Candace Owens. “Anyone claiming otherwise has a vested interest in keeping us divided. The easiest way to maintain power over any group is to keep those within it at war with one another.”

One of the newest cons is that we are not experiencing runaway inflation and we are not in a recession. Inflation hit 8.3% on an annualized basis. This remains near the 40-year high set last year. Based on the general definition—two consecutive quarters of negative gross domestic product (GDP)—the U.S. has entered a recession. Yet the White House has suggested that the U.S. is in the midst of an “historic” economic recovery and that the narrative of higher gas prices is false. “We just received news that our economy had 0% inflation in July,” White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre tweeted. Can they expect anyone to take them seriously?

The same applies to Biden’s open border policy. They tell us that the border is closed. That is difficult to swallow when we see that seven million illegals have come across since Biden took over. Is no one paying attention? Obviously not. As Mark Levin has pointed out, Biden has failed to execute the immigration laws passed by Congress. For this alone, he should be impeached.

The U.S. military is being undermined by the con that its ranks are swollen with white supremacists. Our military has been effective because it has always been a meritocracy. The introduction of social engineering—especially affirmative action—is draining the military of its combat effectiveness.

Last but not least is the COVID con, used to regulate when people can leave their homes, go to work, and visit family members. “Politicians are continuing to use the virus as a pretext to force their agendas on an unwilling and weary population,” said Tucker Carlson. After we were told by the CDC that the vaccines are 100% effective, we are discovering “that turned out not simply to be untrue, but in some sense to be the opposite of the truth. In some cases,” said Carlson, “the vaccinated are more likely to get variants of COVID. The death rates around the world for the vaccinated are extraordinarily high, but anyone who had doubts about what [the CDC] said was told to shut up. Now that we know that virtually everything they said about COVID was wrong, however, no one has admitted it, and no one has been punished.”

The ignorance of our population enables the perpetuation of the Big Con. We desperately need to replace our current state of gullibility with critical thinking, which is characterized by rationality, common sense, and reliance upon evidence. While the Democrats remain in power, none of these can be expected to emanate from Washington.

Antisemitic college demonstrators should be expelled



Jewish students are being assaulted on American and European campuses with a viciousness that is reminiscent of 1938 Nazi Germany. The demonstrators, many of whom are professional agitators in their 40s who have been trained to cause mayhem, scream “kill the Jews” as they physically prevent Jewish students from attending classes. Jewish students were told to “go back to Poland.” In New York City, Jewish students at Cooper Union sheltered in a library while pro-Palestinian demonstrators banged on its glass windows and doors. Protesters at Tulane University assaulted a Jewish student, breaking his nose.

“This truly has been the worst antisemitism crisis on campus that we have seen for a generation,” said Edward Isaacs, president of the Union of Jewish Students in the UK, “and its impacts run deep throughout the Jewish student population.”

With few notable exceptions, college administrators have coddled the demonstrators instead of expelling them for committing assault, destroying university property and creating an unsafe environment. Local police have been told to stand down instead of enforcing the law.

When it comes to choosing sides between violent antisemitic demonstrators and Jewish students who simply want an education, I am clearly coming to the defense of the innocent students. Instead of hearing angry responses from people who object to the flagrant contempt by the demonstrators for law and order, we have witnessed members of Congress, led by Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) and Cori Bush (D-Minn.), express their demands that police should protect the violent demonstrators.

Omar and Bush have compared police responses after pro-Hamas protests on campus to the so-called Kent State massacre of May 4, 1970, where four students were killed by the Ohio National Guard. The students in that case were protesting against American military involvement in Vietnam. “On the 54th anniversary of the Kent State Massacre, students across our country are being brutalized for standing up to endless war,” Bush tweeted on X. “Our country must learn to actually uphold the rights of free speech & assembly upon which it was founded. Solidarity with our students.”

Are we denying the free speech and assembly rights of the demonstrators? The real question is, should we protect speech when it becomes violent? The answer is straightforward. When violence occurs, it is no longer about protecting free speech—the rule of law must be upheld. “Violence, vandalism, and antisemitic harassment and intimidation are not free speech and those engaging in this behavior should be held accountable,” read a statement from Congressman Adam Schiff’s office.

When it comes to free speech, the pro-Hamas protestors are intolerant of opposing points-of-view. One student at Columbia University made that clear when she expressed sympathy with pro-Palestinian protesters and not with students of opposing views. “At the end of the day,” she said, “I don’t want a relationship with students who don’t support the cause.” Free speech for me but not for thee.

Many of the current crop of demonstrators who are physically assaulting Jewish students, shouting “death to the Jews,” believe they have the right to exercise violence in support of their views and think they should bear no consequences for their violent actions. They are upset at the prospect of being suspended or expelled. Most of them wear keffiyeh and Covid masks, presumably to protect their future Goldman Sachs job prospects.

“I think that the university needs to start with dismissing all their charges against the students if they want to rebuild trust,” said a deluded student at Columbia. Alex Morey, director of campus rights advocacy at the Foundation for Individual Rights and Expression, disagreed. “That doesn’t mean that students are immune from the consequences of their actions,” Morey said. “You don’t want to see cops in riot gear descend on peaceful student protests. But if they’re breaking the rules and engaging in civil disobedience … sometimes that’s what has to happen,” she says.

Beating up Jewish students and destroying campus property do not come under the heading of civil disobedience. They constitute a flagrant contempt for law and order. Such activities must be stopped right at the outset. Jewish students across America are terrified, as they should be. They will not feel safe on their college campuses as long as hateful, antisemitic rhetoric, violence or intimidation go unaddressed.

Violent, antisemitic demonstrators deserve to be arrested, put in jail, and then expelled from the university. Campus administrators like Minouche Shafik at Columbia who attempt to negotiate with the neo-Nazis are doing a disservice to our republic. University leaders should take “personal responsibility” for protecting Jewish students on campus, said UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak. This is not 1938 and we must not give an inch to the haters.

Biden: Admit Hamas Terrorists



Joe Biden’s policies reflect the contempt he and his handlers have for our country. The latest example is Joe’s announcement that he wants to bring thousands of Palestinian “refugees” into the US with a pathway to citizenship. This will certainly include members of the terrorist organization known as Hamas. In what conceivable way does this benefit America? “Whatever hurts America the most,” said author Sean Parnell, “is often where the Biden Administration lands on any given issue.”

According to CBS News, “The Biden administration is considering bringing certain Palestinians to the US as refugees, a move that would offer a permanent safe haven to some of those fleeing war-torn Gaza, according to internal federal government documents.” Which Palestinians? Those “who have immediate family members who are American citizens or permanent residents. Those who pass a series of eligibility, medical and security screenings would qualify to fly to the US with refugee status, which offers beneficiaries permanent residency, resettlement benefits like housing assistance and a path to American citizenship.”

Requiring a connection to “American citizens or permanent residents” is a subterfuge when you consider that activists in Dearborn, Michigan were heard chanting “death to America.” These people, who support Hamas and its terrorist activities, make it likely that we would be admitting Hamas terrorists. It is important to recognize, as pointed out by journalist Katie Pavlich, that the Palestinian Center for Policy Survey and Research found that 72 percent of Palestinian respondents believe that Hamas’ attack on October 7 was “correct.”

As reported in Townhall, “A ‘path to American citizenship’ would also mean that these people would get to vote, likely one more tactic of how Biden is looking to gain support from the far-left, anti-Israel part of the Democratic Party. The Biden administration would thus not just be bringing over future potential Democratic voters, but be bringing over ones who are among a population that we know supports Hamas and their attack against our ally in the Middle East.”

A wave of commentators condemned Biden’s plans. “We are ruled by malicious traitors,” said Blaze commentator Auron MacIntyre. “Horrifying,” said NewsBusters managing editor Curtis Houck. “We are a nation committing suicide.”

“Anyone seeing the protests on college campuses right now should not need to be told why ideology matters when conferring the privilege of access to the United States to outsiders,” said Daily Wire reporter Megan Basham. “We do not need more people here whose worldview so clearly clashes with that of the American founding. We should not accept immigrants from among people known to harbor terrorists.”

More than two dozen Republican senators are calling Biden’s policy a national security risk. As reported in The Hill, “The GOP senators doubt that the Biden administration could prevent Hamas-members or other members of a terrorist group from entering the US. ‘We are not confident that your administration can adequately vet this high-risk population for terrorist ties and sympathies before admitting them into the United States,’ they wrote.”

“The open border isn’t enough,” Senate Republicans added. “Now Biden wants to import people who supported the murder and rape of Israelis. Unfortunately, the risk of terrorists entering our homeland is no hypothetical matter,” the senators wrote, citing that in 2023 border officials arrested 169 people on the FBI terror watchlist.

“President Biden consistently undermines our national security with reckless decisions like this,” said Sen. Tim Scott. “We have no clue who is coming into our country, whether on our southern border or from war-torn regions run by terrorists. Not a single Hamas sympathizer should be let into this country.”

The administration kept its intentions secret until this week. No one knew about it. Commentator Mark Levin is angry that Congress did not seem to know about it, or if they did, nothing was done to stop it.

Biden’s anti-American actions prove that he is an infiltrator. Does he do the bidding of Iran or China? The Squad also are infiltrators—they have infiltrated our Congress. They hate America. What sort of country allows this? If he gets another four years, Joe and his Obama/Soros puppet masters will complete the destruction of our country.

“Other insanities aside,” someone tweeted, “this is politically insane. Biden is forcing people to consider voting for Trump. I have every intention of leaving President blank in Nov, but not if Biden insists on opening the doors to a terrorist state.”
