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.

Give Thanks and Carry On

Have a Happy Thanksgiving, if you can



Thanksgiving: that joyous time of the year when families get together, have a wonderful dinner, catch up on what everyone other is doing, give thanks for all that they have, and perhaps watch some football.

Up for the Challenge?

This Thanksgiving might prove to be a challenge for many people. For one, the cost of the turkey, the bird traditionally served, in some locals cost between 50% to 80% more than last year, and turkey was already expensive.

Among your relatives a few might be vegans or vegetarians. If you have a vegan enforcer in the family, this person will rail on and on against eating meat, and about how turkeys have lives just like we do.

One of your vegan or vegetarian relatives might offer a discourse on how cranberries should be harvested a different way, the dangers of turkey stuffing, and the problem with vegetables that you might be serving, the risk of having too many starches – potatoes or rice – and the evils of wine, beer, and other alcoholic drinks.

Topics Worth Avoiding

The politics to consider abound. Since roughly half of the country votes Democrat and half votes Republican, the odds are overwhelming that you’re going to have somebody with opposing politics at the table. During Trump’s years as president, many families had to navigate around the topic of the presidency, prevailing policies. and so on.

Today, while there’s no question that Joe Biden is completely inane as leader, the same delicate navigation needs to occur. As miraculous as this might seem, some on the left actually approve of what Biden has been doing. Note: don’t be concerned about the Bidens going hungry. With all those under-the-table payment from Ukraine and China, they can EASILY afford a huge, expensive turkey with all of the trimmings.

If you can avoid discussing the eight million invaders illegally crossing our borders, rampant inflation, the U.S. Afghanistan withdrawal, the crisis in Israel and potential for World War III, drag time story hour for children, transgenderism, the bogus lawsuits against Donald Trump, the unending crimes of Hunter Biden, the payola to Joe Biden, FBI corruption, the historic unpopularity and ineptness of Kamala Harris, and about 30 or so other topics, your dinner should go smoothly. Enjoy!

A huge current wrinkle on the political scene is that recent surveys reveal at least one-quarter of Democrats actually approve of Hamas, atrocities and all, and side with Palestine on all issues large and small. They believe that Israel is an apartheid state and that Jews are today’s Nazis. Apparently they’ve never visited Israel and have no Jewish friends.

Depending on how many Democrats attend your Thanksgiving gathering, if it’s four or more, mathematically speaking you have a decent chance that one is a pro-Hamas Democrat. Wooo…  Now, you really have to stay clear of current issues or your dinner table might be as inflamed verbally as the Middle East is with armaments.

Insufferable Stuffing

After everyone is stuffed with turkey, vegeburgers, or whatever the people who like rabbit food eat, you might sit in the den and turn on a football game. Quickly, you’ll have a stark reminder of how far political correctness has infected society.

If the Washington Commanders are playing, it’s hard to forget that they used to be called the Washington Redskins until the wokesters among us demanded that the name must be changed. Not so ironically, 90% of native Americans actually want the name Washington Redskins reinstalled, and currently are petitioning for it.

In baseball, the Cleveland Indians “had” to be renamed to the Cleveland Guardians. Potentially, there’s no end of this malarkey. Should the Minnesota Vikings change their name? After all, people from Scandinavia might object to the term “Vikings.” While we’re at it, consider college basketball. The Wake Forest University Demon Deacons are due for a name change, if you’re on the Left. So, too, the Duke University Blue Devils, the Arizona University Aztecs, and on and on.

Landmines to Side Step

With all these potential land mines to side step, and all the ways that otherwise pleasant conversations on a pleasant day could occur, you have to be on guard.

Nevertheless, I wish you and yours a happy Thanksgiving. May you survive the day, fully intact, and ready to have a decent Black Friday.

Biden Boondoggles Imperil the U.S. and the World

The Biden Administration is the picture of futility and incompetence, mixed with corruption and persecution of its political opponents

On my last day following a long sojourn abroad, I met a wonderful woman from North Dallas, had dinner with her, and memorized her email address.

Trending on Learning About My State’s History

When I arrived home the next day, I emailed her to see if she had had a decent trip back. A couple of minutes later, my email bounced back to me as undeliverable. Realizing my mistake of failing to write down her email address or the spelling of her last name, over several weeks I tried numerous alternative methods at length for finding that information, but with no success.

I had not handled it right and I could not later correct the mistake. You’ve long heard the phrase by the late, legendary UCLA basketball coach John Wooden, “If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?” I would add, will you have the opportunity to correct the damage done or even to try again?

Macro Level Bungles

It’s hard to even imagine the frustration and problems for all of us considering the never-ending missteps we watch every day from our president!

Biden and company have engaged in macro-level failures for nearly three years now. Their repeated failures to take early appropriate steps, domestically and internationally, has had serious ramifications for the nation and the world.

In chain-like fashion, their ineptness, unintentional and intentional, has spun out of control and led to one unpalatable situation after another. Then they spend untold labor hours and multi-billions of dollars, not to mention American lives, seeking to correct what they could not get right in the first place.

The disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan caused the loss of American lives and $85 billion dollars worth of military equipment to the Taliban. This ‘gift’ is ultimately finding its way to our enemies throughout the region and, arguably, globally. It also has signaled to the rest of the world, particularly Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea, as well as to Hamas, Hezbollah, and Islamic Jihad, that American military effectiveness is questionable.

As a result of not adequately planning the withdrawal from Afghanistan, as President Trump had already outlined, the Biden Administration has been scrambling ever since. Following our Afghanistan withdrawal Russia’s invasion of Ukraine under a false pretext, and the resulting multi-billions we have spent propping up Ukraine, are major unfortunate results.

Middle East Madness

Another result of our ineptness is the spate of attacks, now several dozen, on U.S. Armed Forces throughout the Middle East following the barbaric Hamas attack on Israel.

China’s forays into the Middle East and its support of Iran further imperil Israel and, by extension, the U.S. In considering the Biden Administration, China is emboldened. They are in partnership with Russia ostensibly for one reason: to hasten our declining power. They have ramped up spying on us via “weather balloons,” university “research centers,” exchange “students,” industrial spying, and, of late, the influx of more than 17,000 Chinese nationals at our southern border – all single men of military age.

Because the Biden Administration intentionally has not secured the southern border it has subjected American citizens to crime, fentanyl addiction, and massive numbers of deaths, as well as bursting federal, state, and municipal budgets in the attempt to house, feed, and safeguard swarming numbers of illegal immigrants.

Biden’s porous border policies have invited terrorists, weakened any notion of U.S. homeland security, heightened child trafficking, accelerated drug cartel activity, and aided gang-related connections throughout our county.

Poor Planning, Execution and Follow Up

Across the board, in examining the policies and programs of the Biden Administration and how poorly they’ve been designed and initiated, it is now apparent that everything they do today represents one attempted, hopeless ‘correction’ after another.

These attempted corrections are long drawn out, invariably with no end in sight. Whether it is on the world stage or domestically, each boondoggle after another leads to protracted, expensive, questionable attempts to resolve what didn’t need to occur in the first place.

It is not an exaggeration: the entire Biden Administration is the picture of futility and incompetence, mixed with corruption and persecution of its political opponents. This is no way to run a country or display to the world how an effective representative republic operates. It is no way to deter our enemies from taking bold steps. It is no way to guide us safely into the future.

Indeed, the entire world is now less safe.
