This verse is dedicated to Dena and Steve in Texas, both are in the ICU.

These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

2. The Grim Consequences of having Joe Biden as President:

Well, that four-year vacation from American involvement in new foreign wars under Trump was nice while it lasted, wasn’t it?

Unfortunately, too many voters let the media convince them that it was important for foreign leaders to love our President, so the Mean Tweeter had to be replaced with the “moderate” lifelong politician who’s been wrong on every foreign policy issue of the previous 47 years. They failed to realize that one of the biggest omens that America is facing big trouble around the world is if our adversaries just LOOOOVE the choice we made for President.

I want our enemies to fear and respect our President, not chortle with delight at their good fortune in our choice of leaders. Right now, anyone wishing America ill is not just chortling, they’re cackling out loud and licking their chops.

In his big press conference last week, President Biden couldn’t have projected weakness more clearly if he’d borrowed the Bat Signal and emblazoned it across the sky. He’d already let the Taliban take over Afghanistan and dictate the terms of our tragic withdrawal. Iran was threatening America and Israel, and North Korea was testing hypersonic missiles, all with barely a peep from the White House.

And then, Biden stood before the entire world and admitted that he probably wouldn’t do much of anything if Russia made a “minor incursion” into Ukraine. Do you think Vladimir Putin didn’t get that “Go" signal? If Trump had sent such a message, the media would have been ablaze with “Trump is a Russian agent” headlines.

Now, we’re facing the grim consequences of having such incredible weakness in the White House. A report by UK intelligence claims that Russia is planning to invade Ukraine and install a pro-Kremlin leader, which is hardly a “minor incursion.” The White House calls it “deeply concerning,” which I’m sure has Putin quaking in his boots.

Now, as a consequence of American weakness, the winds of war are starting to blow. Biden’s advisers are reportedly suggesting that he try to clean up his mess by deploying Navy vessels and sending 3,000 to 5,000 of our troops to Eastern Europe. That is, if we have that many left after he forced out all the Trump voters, critics of his Administration, soldiers who think there are only two genders, and those who didn’t want to get vaccinated.

Meanwhile, NATO has to step up to fill the void of American leadership, so they’re sending some fighter jets and ships to Eastern Europe in hopes of deterring Russia.

But of course, Putin has a weapon he can hold over NATO that he didn’t have when Trump was in office and America was exporting oil and gas instead of begging OPEC for it. Rallying NATO might not even have been necessary had Biden not only laid out the welcome mat for Russia to invade, but strengthened Putin by greenlighting a Russian oil pipeline while targeting our own domestic energy industry for destruction, leaving European NATO nations at the mercy of Russia for oil.

All of this is setting up the game board for yet another costly, deadly foreign war that could have been prevented by simply having a strong US President that our adversaries took seriously. Unfortunately, that appears to be at least three years away. I shudder to think what the state of the world could be by then. In the meantime, China, which has already cracked down on Hong Kong and is threatening Taiwan, will undoubtedly be watching the US response to Russian aggression against Ukraine with great interest.

Sadly, Democrat “leadership” is proving to be a perfect storm of incompetence, weakness and wrongheaded policies. Many people around the world, from our own crime-plagued cities to Afghanistan and possibly soon in Ukraine, are paying the price with the loss of their rights, freedom and lives. I hope you’ll pray for them. And pray that 2024 gets here double quick.


3. Stop please:

Here's how the new Department of Homeland Security vaccine mandates may make the supply chain crisis and merchandise shortages even worse by blocking truckers who refuse to get vaccinated.

The CEO of one cross-border truck fleet that’s already suffering a driver shortage predicted that this is going to cause a “disaster.” Of course, these restrictions will only apply to those attempting to enter the country legally. So if you’re carrying COVID and want to enter illegally, just come on in, the door’s open. But maybe bring some food with you, because you might need it.

4. Avoiding another Afghanistan:

This morning, Ukraine accused the Biden White House of “excessive caution” for ordering family members of US Embassy staffers to evacuate the country.

While I see their point, I also saw how quickly and competently this Administration evacuated our people from Afghanistan. Personally, I would advise them to get out while the getting’s good.

5. “How to deal with sadness and frustration under Biden,” by Jen Psaki:

Things are going so badly under the Biden Administration that his own spokesperson, Jen Psaki, suggested that people just deal with their anger, sadness and frustration by going to a kickboxing class or having a margarita.

I’m a teetotaler, and I don’t think I’ll be taking up kickboxing at this stage of life. So I guess I’ll just deal with my frustration by continuing to report on this Administration and counting the minutes until November, when I hope and pray the elections go the way the latest polls suggest that they will.

But as you can see in that Fox News poll, the Democrats still have the advantage on several issues, in some cases, inexplicably (people actually think they’re better at “uniting the country”?) As I always remind people, the only poll that matters is the one on Election Day (or whenever election season starts in your state), so don’t get complacent. Work, donate, volunteer, and most importantly, vote!

Although I suspect poll-watching will also be pretty important this year.

PS – Speaking of polls, the latest NBC poll is so bad for the Democrats that even Chuck Todd had to admit that most Americans no longer see President Biden as competent and effective, a good commander-in-chief, or even “easygoing and likable.” That must've been painful for him to report.

6. Sinema censured by the Arizona Democrat Party:

The executive committee of the Arizona Democratic Party voted to formally censure Sen. Kyrsten Sinema for having the integrity, foresight and respect for the institution of the Senate not to vote to blow up the filibuster.

I predict that after the next election, they’ll be lining up to thank her for not handing absolute power to whichever party is in the majority. How can I confidently predict this? Because the past is the best indicator of the future:

Just as the filibuster is a vital tool of democracy when the Dems are a minority and an affront to democracy when they’re the majority, so censure is appropriate punishment when Democrats put their principles over their Party. Meanwhile, Republicans who side against their Party are brave “mavericks” and heroes of conscience. Live long enough and you’ll see them flip-flop on these issues more times than a bass in a fishing boat.

    Just saw that pompous windbag, Joe Biden call Peter Doocy a "stupid son of a bitch". Had I been Peter Doocy I would have sued that old bag of wind for slandering my Mother. How much longer are the American people going to put up with his total incompetence, and his total disregard for the people he is supposed to be serving? I also heard that Biden called Peter Doocy about an hour later and said "nothing personal, pal". What a jerk he truly is.

    Biden will use the military to protect Ukraine's borders but won't do single thing to protect our border. When does this become treason?

    2022 is going to be important for many states and especially for Minnesota. We need to get rid of the Democratic Governor and Attorney General to begin with but also the Secretary of State. We have a great candidate running for Governor in Dr. Scott Jensen and Doug Wardlow will be a great replacement for AG. Changing Minnesota Politics isn't going to be easy. We have been taxed and overtaxed until we have a huge surplus but out Gov thinks that he can keep the money and do what he wants with it.

    Still many months of high drama ahead of us. Too many cooks( RINOs)still need to be let go. The RNC still very anti-Trump and anti MAGA. Only intensive prayer and repentance to God is a key factor in stopping Satan and saving the Republic!

    I have seen some articles claiming that Trump had early drafts of orders to seize ballot boxes and/or voting machines and effectively block the outcome of the election. Can we get some unbiased reporting on these claims, please?
