More about that sham debate (supposed to be between McDaniel, Dhillon, and Lindell) — the purpose of a political debate is 4 candidates — not their surrogates — to show why they deserve to be elected. We all know this! And Bannon and Fredericks have rightly & often criticized the Dems 4 avoiding debates. Yesterday, Fredericks had the nerve to pretend in that sham a real debate was taking place! Can you see how the thirst 4 power has corrupted the ethics of Bannon, Fredericks and Harmeet? Wren (the surrogate for Dhillon) even suggested we beat the Dems at cheating until WE can win and change things. People clapped 4 that. Only Mike said, “No, that’s not the way, you’ll never get there doing that.” I call on Kent, Lake & all others who have endorsed Harmeet to withdraw their support now! Winning cannot be so dear we sell r souls 4 it!
Those who will vote soon for Chairperson of the Republican National Committee (The Republican Party) have one chance to get it right. There are three candidates on the ballot: Ronna McDaniel (current Chairwoman), Harmeet Dhillon, and Mike Lindell. There is one and only one who deserves to lead the Republican Party. That person is Mike Lindell. And why, you ask?
Ronna McDaniel has failed as Party leader. She has been great at fund raising, but look at the results of the 2022 General Election. This was supposed to be a Republican sweep of the House of Representatives and the gaining of a majority in the Senate. Neither happened. Yes, Republicans now have a narrow majority in the House, but are in the minority in the Senate. Many of us believe it happened in large part because McDaniel chose not to support several MAGA (Make America Great Again) candidates in the Republican primaries causing them to lose. She withheld financial support. She went with Republican Establishment candidates instead or chose not to be involved at all.
And there have been allegations that McDaniel spent donor money unwisely on frivolous items for her staff….. tens of thousands of dollars. This charge was the icing on the cake. McDaniel, Senator Mitt Romney’s (RINO) niece, does not deserve re-election. She failed.
And how about Harmeet Dhillon. Dhillon is a west coast California based attorney who was educated at Dartmouth and the University of Virginia on the East Coast. She is a respected, competent attorney who has been involved as legal counsel in many Republican fights against corruption and fraudulent elections. She is a former vice chairwoman of the California Republican Party, but cannot point at anything she has accomplished herself as part of the California Republican leadership. Her promises, if elected as Chairwoman of Republican Party, include “planning” for the next two years, encouraging better ballot harvesting than the Democrats, and more voting by mail and early voting. In other words, out cheat the cheaters. As Chairwoman, she would be out of her lane. She needs to stay as legal counsel and fight in courts in which she has had mixed results.
Then we have Mike Lindell. Lindell has devoted his life and his fortune to seeing the United States get healthy again. He knows more about election fraud than about anyone. He financed a Computer Symposium that exposed the fraud of the 2020 and 2022 elections. Hard evidence. Lindell does not want fraud to benefit either the Democrats or the Republicans. He wants elections to be fair and honest; period. He knows how to make them so. His biggest push is to ditch all machines and go back to paper hand counted ballots.
Further, Lindell is a man of the people and frankly, a genius. He has been through rough times in his life, turned it around, and built a multi-million dollar business, My Pillow. His company employs thousands. Lindell knows how to get things done and, like President Donald Trump, he does not owe allegiance to any special interest group, lobbyist, big donors, or to the Washington Establishment. He is an independent businessman and devoted patriot. Just what the Republican National Party needs; not more Establishment.
Getting Lindell elected is somewhat of a long shot, but he is the only qualified candidate on the ballot…. And is he qualified!
We have been watching the US House of Representatives struggle to elect a Speaker of the House. The Speaker has incredible power over House procedures, the movement of legislation, the appointment of Committees and Committee Chairs, and more. Nothing happens in the House without the approval of the Speaker. We know that clearly from the past reign of Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a Democrat in a Democrat House majority.
The big question is whether Kevin McCarthy, who has been the minority leader and leader of the Republican Caucus, is the person to be Speaker. To become Speaker, one must garner a favorable vote from the majority of Representatives. In times past, this has been almost automatic for the winner to be the existing leader of the political party in the majority. Not now.
The majority held by the Republican Party in the new Congress is slim; only a few votes. McCarthy has managed to alienate several Representatives who now have taken a stand against him becoming Speaker. The number now is about 20 who oppose him.
Representative Warren Davidson rose for one of the Congressional votes for Speaker to nominate McCarthy. As part of his nomination speech, he read a long list of changes in Republican Caucus and House procedures and rules McCarthy had agreed to make. Davidson must have thought this to be a positive move, but it came across as an indictment of McCarthy’s inaction in the time he has been minority leader. Why haven’t changes already been made or promised without the pressure from the now opponents of him. Frankly, McCarthy cannot now be trusted.
It is time to move on. McCarthy needs to step aside. His opponents are entrenched in opposition to him. As long as they are, there will be no Speaker. Unless!!!!
It is not beyond possibility that McCarthy will begin to negotiate with Democrats for votes. Not many votes from Democrats would be needed to take McCarthy into a majority of the House vote and the Speaker office. Democrats do not have any possibility of electing one of their own as Speaker even if they stick together 100%. Democrats may conclude it better to support a Speaker that has made concessions to them, which he would have to do to get their votes. What concessions: committee appointments, agreement about specific legislation, and more. This would be a disaster for conservative Republicans and a win for Democrats.
McCarthy made the arrogant decision to physically move into the Speaker’s office before being chosen as Speaker. I think this says it all. Do we want another dictator Pelosi as Speaker of the House? I don’t think so.
[This was an observation early on in the 2020 Biden presidency. Now ole Joe has announced he will be running for President again in 2024. God Help Us!]
In February 1988, Biden sustained the rupture of the cerebral (brain)aneurysm and almost died, except for the heroic efforts of his neurosurgeon. Three months later, a second aneurysm had to be clipped. After the second procedure his neurosurgeon gave him less than a 50% chance of a full recovery. With that history one would think that the media would have questioned him during his presidential campaign about whether any diagnostic studies had been done in the interim, but they did not. His health status was never seriously questioned.
On his most recent published physical exam it was noted that he has persistent atrial fibrillation. This diagnosis alone would not qualify him for standard life insurance because of a 5-fold increase for a stroke. The treatment for this condition is chronic anti coagulation, which in a feeble, unsteady 78 year old male, who falls three times while ascending the stairs of Air Force One is extremely risky. A severe fall with a head injury could result in a fatal cerebral hemorrhage.
His mental and cognitive status has obviously deteriorated as is apparent to anyone who watches him speak, despite his handlers ‘attempts to protect him as much as possible. Speaking in short sentences with frequent pauses, the need for notes to answer questions, using jumbled words without meaning short term memory lapses (forgets the name of General Austin, and two female generals he is honoring) are all definite signs of brain damage. It surprises me that his wife, (Jill) who knew his shortcomings better than anyone else, could not have talked him out of taking the most difficult job in the world.
Of interest also is the fact that since 9/11 it has been the United States Government policy to have the president and vice president travel separately, NOT ANYMORE. Kamala Harris is only a few steps behind him whether by air, land or sea. This is obviously because he may say the wrong thing, fall or have a medical emergency. He would also be the first president to have the nuclear button removed from his sole use.
So, where does this lead us? It tells me that Kamala Harris will be our President sooner rather than later. This alone sends shivers up my spine.
The Democratic party, directed of course by Barack, knew this would be the case despite the fact that she received the fewest votes of any candidate for President in the crowded Democratic primaries. Harris was second only to Bernie Sanders on the Socialist/Marxist scorecard and this resonates very well with Obama’s ideology, nurtured by the Saul Alinsky playbook.
So what can we do about this? First of all, I recommend that you PRAY FERVENTLY, because divine intervention may be necessary. Secondly, I recommend that you pay very close attention to the midterm elections next year and vote for the people who love America and our Democracy.

I read something recently that caught my eye. It said people really do not have a strong intuitive sense of how much bigger 1 Billion is than 1 Million. Or for that matter how much 1 Trillion is.
Let’s put this in terms of seconds. If you do the math for 1 Million seconds, then convert this number to days, it comes to about 5.5 days. Then for 1 Billion seconds, the answer is 31.7 YEARS. If we go on to 1 Trillion seconds, the answer is 3,171 YEARS!
Got it. And we just had a $1.7 TRILLION Omnibus bill passed by Congress with one of our lovely Indiana Senators, Todd Young, voting for it along with 17 other Republican Senators. To pay that back at the rate of $1 per second, it would take 5,391 YEARS.
Personally, I think Young and other RINO Republicans don’t give a damn about the common folks in the country. That’s my opinion.
As I sit to write, I am not sure what is going to come out. I just passed my 84th birthday in early December. One begins to think more about time. I have already lived longer than any male ancestor I can find. My maternal grandfather lived to age 81. He was the oldest. Ever other male ancestor died before reaching 80….. many in their late 70’s. So, time for some reflection.
Our beloved country is in one hellava mess. The President of the United States, Joseph Biden, is about as crooked as they come. His son, brother, and the whole Biden family have stolen from many, have taken bribes and graft, have snuggled up to the Communist Chinese, and have betrayed the United States. They all should be in jail or yet better: hanged.
Biden gained the Presidency via a fraudulent election. The Democrat machine was really good at cheating. It has continued in about every election since. I must say in some cases with the help of crooked Republicans and RINOs including one of our home Senators, Todd Young who just voted in favor of a 1.7 trillion Omnibus Bill in Congress. That bill hamstrings the next Congress which House is Republican controlled. In addition, nothing is funded and we continue to send billions to Ukraine while neglecting our Vets and the border.
The 2023 year is going to be a rough one. Inflation continues at unacceptable levels. It is robbing the incomes and savings of the majority of Americans. Gasoline prices are at historical highs when the USA had the opportunity to be the energy dominate leader in the world under President Trump. Biden shut it all down, so we now beg for oil from our friends and our enemies. What a crock of shit.
The border: we have already had millions of illegal aliens come in to the United States. Where they are in our country is really unknown. Biden et.al. simply put them on busses and planes to transport them all over our country; sometimes in the secrecy of night. Frankly, the companies that are doing the transporting are traitors as well: aiding and abetting illegal activity. They need to be in jail along with Biden and his fellow travelers.
I have seen much in my 84 years, but nothing like what is going on in the USA and around the world now. China is on the path to dominate all. We just hit 8 billion people on the planet on the way to 10 or more billion which level the Earth cannot support. And — believe it or not — the planet is warming with the rate of warming increasing due to human activity and now the rapid thaw of permafrost areas which release massive amounts of global warming gasses, methane. The future of the USA and even Earth does not look good without some intervention from on HIGH. We need to pray.

Dear Adolph Biden:
The setting used by you for your speech last evening and the message you preached closely resembled something I would have expected from Adolph Hitler in the days of Nazi Germany. How dare you.
You and your crooked family and comrades are the enemies of this country. I pray to God that the MAGA/America First movement will overtake you this November. It will unless you and the Democrat machine are successful at fraud as you were in November 2020.
You have no idea how angry Americans are at you and your ilk. You have no idea how angry Americans are at the FBI/DOJ raid of Mar-A-Largo….. and the lying claims made by you and Garland early on while Wray vacationed in the Adirondacks. The stench from the rot of Washington DC grows.
The last straw was the speech you made. In short, it was a rally cry for the MAGA/America First movement of which you are clearly terrified. It is coming.

Dear Ms. Cheney:
As a lifelong Republican now 83 years old, I am delighted to be able to say to you, “Bye-Bye”.
You, your father, George Bush I & II were really traitors to our country. Oh, I have to add John McCain.
I hope you have a pleasant retirement in Wyoming where they have no use for you. The results of the primary should make that crystal clear.

I write concerning the election to be held this November. Although Indiana is a strongly Republican state, I am convinced that significant fraud occurred in the 2020 election. It does not appear in Indiana that fraud was to the level results were affected, but I have not looked at all the down ballot races. My concern is that I think Indiana will continue to use electronic machines in the coming election that are vulnerable to fraud.
I believe it to be in the best interest of honest elections to take lessons from the past. Indiana did not have extended periods of early voting. It allowed absentee voting in real need cases. It required voters to vote in their home precinct. It required actual written signatures on poll books. It required voter identification. And the results were tabulated at the precinct level; then forwarded to central county offices.
The reason I know this is I was in management of The Kokomo Tribune for over 20 years. When Election Day came, the newsroom of the newspaper became “Election Central”. Candidates from both parties would gather in the newsroom to await results. Representatives of other media like local radio stations were set up in the newsroom. At the precinct level, two copies of results were generated. One copy was brought by courier to the newspaper office and the other taken to the Clerk’s office for totaling.
There were NO electronic machines used. The voting was either done on paper ballots or with mechanical machines. There was no chance fraud could be introduced. The elections were honest.
Fraud came with electronic machines. Signatures on little electronic signature pads are a joke. The transmission of results over the Internet is ripe for fraud. And even allowing voters to vote anywhere over even weeks is ripe for fraud. And for sure, mail in ballots are the worst.
I realize the General Assembly took some action to tighten elections, but until we return to paper ballots, voter id, home precinct voting, election one day voting except in genuine need cases for absentee ballots, signature verification, and precinct tally of votes; I believe we are asking for continuing fraud. It must stop.
The problem is nationwide.
Thanks for listening.

Senator John Kennedy often comes out with some words of wisdom. What follows are some of his most current observations….
“We all know President Biden is in trouble… and, therefore, America is in trouble. Measure it any way you want…
The debacle in Afghanistan which has emboldened Russia and China and Iran
The unbridled inflation
A Justice Department that thinks parents are dangerous ‘domestic terrorists’
A Treasury Department that wants access to the checking account of every American that has a job
No wonder the American people are so angry. It’s no wonder that so many Americans think this administration does not care about them or their lives or their future.
Now, I say this with respect… with all the respect I can muster, but my advice to the President is this…
Mr. President, you just got to try harder not to suck ……”
