Among President Biden’s flurry of mind boggling executive orders is one that rescinds Trump’s order to keep China from being involved in America’s power grid.

Biden also intends to go back to the failed Obama “catch and release” immigration program, instead of keeping migrants on the Mexican side of the border while their claims to enter the US are being processed. Biden had a phone call with Mexico’s President, who, while trying to remain diplomatic, seemingly conveyed that he agreed with Trump’s plan. What Biden denounced as Trump’s “draconian immigration policies” actually helped both the US and Mexico. They kept illegal immigrants from being released in America, never to show up for their court dates, and they discouraged migrants from Central America from crossing through Mexico to get here.

Biden’s genius plan for stopping illegal immigration is to send $4 billion of our tax money to Central America to address the “root causes” of illegal immigration. I’m sure that money will end up going only into the most efficient and productive areas to aid the people, and will not be pocketed by corrupt officials and powerful drug gangs. A policy analyst at the Migration Policy Institute called $4 billion a nice start, but only that. Spoken like a true Democrat.

Or maybe Biden’s genius plan is to kill so many jobs and take away so many freedoms in America that migrants will decide they’d rather just stay in Honduras or El Salvador. If so, he’s certainly off to a good start.

It appears that not enough Americans subscribe to this newsletter, or else they would have no excuse for casting uninformed votes for Joe Biden and other Democrats and now be expressing shock and dismay at what they’re doing. The warnings were right here, every day for a year. And yet, getting rid of Trump’s mean tweets was all-important.

Now, buyer’s remorse is already setting in with a vengeance. A rising tide of complaints is coming from labor unions, entire states, other nations such as Canada, women (black women in particular, who benefit from sports scholarships that will now be dominated by “trans women”), and even an Indian tribe that’s accusing Biden of making “a direct attack on our economy, sovereignty, and our right to self-determination” with his 60-day moratorium on new oil and gas leases on federal land.

Texas has already filed a lawsuit to block one of Biden’s executive orders.

New Mexico voted for Biden by 10 points, and their economy is heavily dependent on oil and gas drilling, much of it on federal lands. Now, panic is striking New Mexico. Many of those fuel companies will just move directly east to Texas, where they can drill on non-federal land. A study by the University of Wyoming found that if Biden’s ban on new federal land fuel leases stays in effect throughout his four-year term, New Mexico would lose “36,217 jobs, $22.1 billion in GDP, $9.8 billion in wages and $6.3 billion in tax revenue.”

And here are a couple of stories about shocked Biden voters who thought they were getting a moderate centrist (or in some cases, a $2000 check), and instead are watching Biden sign one executive order after another that will destroy thousands of jobs, devastate the economy and end border security.

Here’s a typical post: “Jeremy just called and yelled at me. He said everyone on the job site are freaking out thinking they are going to lose their jobs. He’s blaming me for voting for Biden. You know I hated the way Trump acted. Is it true that Jeremy could lose his job?”

Yes, chances are he will, as will many other Americans. But at least he won’t have to read any mean Trump tweets while standing in the unemployment line.

Who else is kicking themselves for supporting Biden? How about all the unions whose members’ jobs will be wiped out by Biden’s executive orders?

Frankly, it’s too exhausting and depressing to try to keep up with all the economic carnage being wrecked so quickly, but Jeff Dunetz at The Lid blog is giving it a go. He estimates that in just his first 72 hours in office, Biden has killed over 70,000 jobs directly (he also quotes some of the howling from various union leaders who helped put him in office, prioritizing politics over the good of their members – something the members should remember come voting time.)

Of course, those are just the immediate, direct job losses. There will be many more, due to the snowball effect. Because of Biden’s war on domestic energy, fuel prices are already going up (one month ago, the average cost of a gallon of regular was $2.25; today it’s $2.40, and that’s only the beginning.) Higher costs of fuel and more regulations will make American products more expensive to produce and transport, which will make them less competitive in the market, which will lower sales and revenues, which means fewer jobs and lower wages. These are things you know if you’ve ever run a business, but not if you’ve drawn an always-increasing government paycheck for decades.

While it’s a great idea for conservatives to let companies that cave to the leftist mobs know they’re sacrificing millions of customers over the bleating of a handful of radicals on Twitter and that you will take your dollars elsewhere if they don’t grow a spine and stop it, it’s also important that conservatives flex their economic power by patronizing companies that don’t target, insult and demonize them.

For instance (and I hope they forgive me for putting them on the spot by praising them), Costco announced that it has no intention of violating its contracts with MyPillow over CEO Mike Lindell’s skepticism of the 2020 election results, unlike Kohl’s, Bed Bath & Beyond and Wayfair.

A Costco rep said, “We have contractual commitments to MyPillow that we intend to honor, as we seek to do with all of our suppliers.” Why, it’s almost as if they were running a business, not a Stalinist purge!

(Incidentally, if you’re wondering why I would link to what the left calls a “rightwing conspiracy site” – Gateway Pundit – rather than the source of their story, MSN.com, it’s because the GP story is far more accurate and objective. The MSN site is filled with disproven claims and overheated propaganda, even tarring Lindell because MyPillow advertises on Fox News.)

Along those same lines, here are 17 companies you can support that don’t discriminate against conservatives.

And a link to our recent entertainment gift guide, if you’d like to support entertainers who don’t go around calling conservatives Nazis and demanding they be put in concentration camps (I never said Hollywood stars were history students.)

To the surprise of nobody, Senate Democrat leader Chuck Schumer seems determined to press ahead with a trial on the unprecedented, most likely unconstitutional impeachment of former President Trump.

He’s insisting that you can impeach someone who’s no longer in office, even though impeachment exists as an action to remove someone from office. It’s possible that Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts might refuse even to preside over it, if he cares about the Constitution (sadly, that’s an open question.) Here are some more details on the confusing issues that are only now being debated because in all of American history, this is the first time Congress has ever pulled anything this stupid, at least in the impeachment field.

Sen. Mitch McConnell is pressing to delay any trial to February, to give Trump’s people a fair chance to mount a defense, something they didn’t get to do during the rushed House vote, which is another reason why this is totally bogus (another is that he was impeached for allegedly inciting the Capitol riot with a speech that a federal investigation has already proven took place after the rioters had already started planning their assault.) Schumer will likely oppose that, since trying to impeach a President who’s been gone for five weeks might look five times dumber than trying to impeach one who’s been gone for one week.

Republican Sen. John Cornyn of Texas tried (probably futilely) to inject some common sense into the Senate proceedings by pointing out, “We won’t be doing any confirmations, we won’t be doing any COVID-19 relief, we won’t be doing anything else other than impeaching a person who’s not even President.” Unfortunately, we live in a time when trying to inject common sense into the Senate is like trying to give a vaccination shot to a Pet Rock.

The 46th President

January 25, 2021

Joe Biden became the 46th President on Wednesday and he said he wanted to fight as hard for the people who didn’t vote for him to promote unity, but then he proceeded to imply that anyone who voted for President Trump was a racist, a white nationalist, or an imbecile who needs to be de-programmed and re-educated. Boy, that really warmed the hearts of 74 million people! I will not spend the next 4 years screaming that “Biden is NOT MY PRESIDENT!” I honestly can’t fault Joe Biden for issuing a stack of executive orders that undid pretty much everything Donald Trump did by executive orders in 4 years. As we should all know, elections have consequences. With the stroke of a pen, Joe Biden opened the borders to illegal immigrants who are now rushing to get in so we can educate them, give them health care, let them vote, and compete with your kids for jobs. He stopped the Keystone Pipeline which means fuel prices in the US will jump up, we’ll tick off Canada, kill 11,000 jobs immediately, and return us from our being energy independent to once again having to beg the Saudis for oil. This really helps the Russians, who’ve been all but bankrupted by the Trump energy policies of putting America first. So for all the lies told about Donald Trump colluding with Russia, it turns out that Russia’s real friend is Joe Biden. In all, in his first hours as President, Joe Biden signed about 17 executive orders to undo policies of Donald Trump. And that’s what happens in an election. You don’t just lose power; you change direction. And if you just liked Joe Biden’s personality more than Donald Trump’s, then hopefully you won’t mind paying for it. And you will pay for it. But it’s not the Big Government economic policies that will disturb me most. It’s endangering our ally Israel by getting back into the deal with Iran, the world’s largest sponsor of state-owned terrorism. It’s pushing a pro-abortion agenda that believes it’s normal and okay to take the life of a baby right up until the moment of birth and force you to pay for that horrific procedure with your tax dollars. It’s forcing institutions and schools to play along with the fiction that a person’s gender can be decided by “imagining it to be” regardless of the science of biology as well as the Bible that says there are 2 genders, male and female. But don’t expect to be given the truth about what Joe Biden does or doesn’t do from the media. Their hate of Trump was so intense that even after mocking him for saying we’d get a vaccine before the end of the year when he launched Operation Warp Speed, he delivered, and they dived into their arrogance and never admitted that they were wrong or have they or will they ever give him credit. Our country is truly divided and while I hope President Biden will try to bring the nation together, he can’t if he doesn’t recognize that 74 million of us see the world differently, but we are not racists, white supremacists, or nativists. We love God, our families, and our country. And we think America is good. Not perfect, but good and better than it was. And I guess even the leftists are starting to agree with us because when Lady Gaga sang the National Anthem at the inauguration, not one person took a knee!

"Nothing We Can Do"

January 25, 2021

Throughout the COVID-19 (Chinese) coronavirus pandemic (and yes, I will continue reminding everyone where it came from), Democrats and the media blamed President Trump for every new case and every death attributed to the virus. He was personally responsible because he “didn’t listen to the scientists” (even though the scientists repeatedly contradicted their own advice.) They never explained how it could be spreading and killing people even worse in nations where Trump wasn’t President; they simply blamed him, not the fact that just like every other very contagious and deadly virus in history, it was bound to spread and kill people.

His political rival Joe Biden was especially harsh in heaping blame on Trump, even dehumanizing him by claiming he didn’t care that people died. He and his supporters mocked Trump for saying that a vaccine would be available before the end of 2020 (when it was, Biden and Kamala Harris were among the first to get it, and never thanked Trump or admitted they were wrong.) Biden insisted, despite his previous record of slow-footed failure with the swine flu pandemic, that he could have stopped the virus; that Trump had no plan, but he had a comprehensive action plan to “crush” the virus. He promised that with him in office, Americans would soon be able to go back to the movies or out to dinner with friends.

Well, voters took him at his word. So where’s that plan to crush the virus?

Er, about that…Turns out there is no plan, other than continuing to do pretty much what Trump was already doing. This is another perfect example of my prediction that his biggest obstacle would not be Republicans, but reality. Reality: viruses don’t give a fig about your campaign promises. They just keep on virusing until they’re killed off by herd immunity or vaccines.

Friday, in a staggering flip-flop, now-President Biden finally admitted, “There is nothing we can do to change the trajectory of the pandemic in the next several months."

That’s reality. His supporters are throwing out the usual feeble excuse: “Trump messed things up so badly that it will take Biden a long time to turn things around!” But that’s not what Biden said, was it? He told you he had a comprehensive plan to crush the virus, and soon. That was a lie. He did not have such a plan. Because – reality again – nobody has. Here’s that late-breaking nod to reality summed up in six words: “Before Election Day/After Election Day.”

It would also have been reality for Biden to have made that exact same statement at any time in 2020, but it wouldn’t have helped him win the election. Most Americans took as many precautions as they could, short of hiding out in their basements 24/7 (not everyone can be Joe Biden), many lost their jobs and businesses in endlessly shut-down blue states, but still, the virus spread like…well, like a virus.

Studies found no discernible difference between virus spread in shut-down and non-shutdown areas. Trump created an unprecedented public-private partnership to develop the vaccine in record time, but that still takes time. There is no “Dr. Biden’s Magic Bullet” to eliminate the coronavirus. But there are now multiple vaccines in use and on the way.

Will Biden ever acknowledge reality completely and thank Donald Trump for that?

Multiple union leaders are joining Canadian officials in expressing their anger over President Biden’s executive order killing the Keystone Pipeline project (along with thousands of union jobs) and reneging on an expensive agreement with Canada, just to appease some radical green activists and “undo Trump’s legacy.”

Never having run a business (or done anything other than warm a government seat for 47 years), Biden doesn’t understand that when a new boss comes in, he doesn’t arbitrarily cancel every project his predecessor set in motion, especially not those that represent a major investment and a number of binding outside contracts.

Unfortunately, he’s also surrounded himself with other people whose experience is entirely in politics, which explains the clueless response to the anger by his Transportation Secretary pick, Pete Buttigieg (whose experience includes being mayor of South Bend, Indiana, and nothing involving transportation or oil.) In a stunning "learn to code" moment, Buttigieg brushed off concerns about all the lost union jobs, assuring the newly unemployed pipeline workers that with Biden’s coming climate initiatives, they can just find “different” jobs.

This Administration is only four days old, and I’m already seeing a lot of people who need to find different jobs.

America is mourning the loss of two icons in their respected fields, baseball great Hank Aaron and legendary broadcaster Larry King.

Larry King passed away early Saturday morning at 87 at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. No cause of death was given, but he had been moved into the ICU with COVID-19 on New Year’s Eve, although he was reportedly improving in recent days.

King began his 63-year broadcast career as a radio DJ and interviewer in 1957, where he would set up in a Miami restaurant and interview whoever walked in the door. He would go on to interview every newsmaker of his era, from criminals to world leaders. He also wrote books and a newspaper column, and seemingly invincible, survived lung cancer, Type 2 diabetes, multiple heart attacks, quintuple bypass surgery, and most famously, eight marriages to seven different women.

King revealed that the secret of his interviews was lack of research. He felt that interviewing subjects without knowing too much about them in advance made the conversation more natural and more relatable to listeners, since he would be asking the same questions they might ask. It sounds odd, and it sometimes led to some hilariously out-of-left-field moments, but it was always entertaining.

Hank Aaron’s family also reported Friday that the baseball legend had died at 86 of undisclosed causes.

Aaron was a giant from the era before baseball’s steroid scandals and political controversies. He started in the Negro Leagues in 1951, then played in the Major Leagues from 1954 to 1976. He hit more than 40 home runs during eight seasons, played in 25 All-Star Games, and still holds the all-time RBI record with 2,297.

The greatest moment of his career came on April 8, 1974, while playing for the Atlanta Braves, when he became the first player to break Babe Ruth’s record by hitting his 715th career home run (he would later retire as MLB’s all-time home run leader with 755.) That 715th home run was a milestone event not just for sports, but for US history, pop culture and race relations, with a crowd in Georgia giving a roaring standing ovation to a black player for breaking the record of a white baseball icon.

Aaron was also a sports hero who lived up to his image as an idol to American youth, and was famous for his decency, humility, business success and major philanthropic work.
