(A brief comment for this week.)


"Well, you've got two groups of people in government. . . You've got those who trust government more than people, and those who trust people more than government. I trust people more than government." -- Senator John Kennedy, on the "Tucker Carlson Tonight" Fox TV show, May 18, 2020.

Education and Propaganda

. Dot "China College Funding Scandal-- It Gets Worse."
. Dot "Anti-Homeschool Harvard Prof Thumbs Her Nose at 'Conservative Christians'." Yes, of course. Anything she doesn't agree with must be wrong. And prohibited.
. Dot "Principal Apologizes after 'Very Religious' School Assigns 'Hardcore Porn' Homework to 11- to 14-Year-Old Students."

Global-Warming Nonsense and the Leftist Environmental Movement

. Dot "CNN Puts Teen Climate Activist Greta Thunberg on Coronavirus Panel with Health Experts -- and Observers Are in Mockery Mode." Will you obey what Greta tells you to do?
. Dot "The Real Climate Science Deniers." Indeed.
. Dot "Exposed: Michigan Dam Burst Because the State Wanted to Protect Freshwater Mussels." Save the mussels -- let the people drown.

Government Run Amuck

. Dot "Obama's Bloodiest Scandal Reemerges as Mexico Demands an Apology for Operation Fast and Furious." An attempt to overturn the Second Amendment failed.
. Dot "Flynn's Attorney Speaks out about Obama's Role in Effort to Entrap Former National Security Adviser."
. Dot "Who Sent COVID-19 Positive Patients into Nursing Homes?"
. Dot "Woman Holding 'We Are Free' Sign while Sitting on Beach Dragged Away by Cops: 'This Is a Power Trip. This Has Nothing to Do with the Virus.'." And the incident proves we are not free.
. Dot "The US Is Dramatically Overcounting Coronavirus Deaths." And the government is encouraging that.
. Dot "Over 100 Released Rikers Inmates Already Arrested Again for New Crimes: Report." There will be more. Many more. Here's a novel idea: keep law breakers in jail.
. Dot "Oregon Gov Pulls out All the Stops to Destroy Mother Who Reopened Her Salon." Lesson learned: If the government wants to, it can and will destroy you. A very sad lesson indeed.
. Dot "Nice Try: Governor Cuomo Says 'Nobody Should Be Prosecuted' for Sticking Sick Coronavirus Patients into New York Nursing Homes." In other words: Don't blame me just because I did a dumb and deadly thing.
. Dot "The Obama Administration Almost Pulled off a Soviet-Style Election Coup." Obama and other Democrats. They turned this country into a banana republic.
. Dot "De Blasio Warns Beach Swimmers Will 'Be Taken Right out of the Water'." I doubt such action will reduce virus deaths, but it sure will reduce freedom in New York City.
. Dot "HUGE SCANDAL: Oregon Changes Hundreds of Republican Ballots to 'Non Partisan' Denying GOP Voters the Right to Participate in Primary." Democrats are cheating again.
. Dot "Attorney General Barr: What Obama Admin Did to Trump with 'Russian Collusion' Actions Is 'Unprecedented'." I can guarantee that at least some of the guilty will not be punished.
. Dot "De Blasio Now Supports a Fence -- but around New York."
. Dot "Flynn Case: Activists Judges Are a Danger to America." That's for sure!
. Dot "FBI Offered to Pay Christopher Steele 'Significantly' for Dirt on Michael Flynn and Other Trump Associates." There's a word for that. Insurrection.
. Dot "Yet Another Multi-Million Dollar Field Hospital Closes Without Seeing a Single Patient."
. Dot "Seven Abuses of Power Carried out by Local Governments during the Coronavirus Crisis." Lessons learned: your freedoms can quickly be taken from you. And the police can and will assist in taking your freedoms away.


. Dot "'You'll Never Walk Alone,' Virtual Choir/Orchestra -- 15 Countries, 300 People -- May 1, 2020." (You may wist to skip the ad at the beginning.)
. Dot "Mayor Was out Partying during Lockdown. When Cops Showed up, He Hopped in a Coffin and Pretended to Be Dead."

The Media, Including Social Media

. Dot "Pulitzers: More Proof of Media Perfidy."
. Dot "'YOU'RE CORRECT:' NBC's 'Meet the Press' Admits Their Segment on AG Barr Was Not Accurate." It was far worse than just "not accurate." It was a deliberate smear, a total misrepresentation. And a disgrace. NBC should pay a price for such an outrage.
. Dot "Fox News Senior Political Analyst Cites this as 'the Worst Journalistic Fiasco' He's Ever Seen. He's Not Wrong." All planned and executed by Democrats.
. Dot "Fake News: ABC, NBC, CBS All Face-Plant on Bogus Anti-Trump Administration Stories in the Span of a Few Days." So, what's new?
. Dot "Media Mistakes in the Trump Era: The Definitive List." I believe it just scratches the surface.
. Dot "AP Says Ditch the 'Mistress'."
. Dot "Trump Tweets Video Warning of Big Tech Censorship -- Twitter Immediately Censors It." Free speech is under serious attack.

. Dot "The Game of Truth." It shouldn't be a game.
. Dot "WSJ Columnist: Here's What the Press Left out when AG Barr Said No Criminal Probe Will Be Opened against Biden."

. Dot "CNN Downplays Biden's 'You Ain't Black' Comments, Avoids on-Air Coverage throughout the Day."

Must-Read (or Must-View or Must-Listen)

. Dot "How the Obama Administration Shattered the Rule of Law." And harmed America beyond measure.
. Dot "You'll Freeze in the Dark!" Best comment: "When government programs 'take care of us,' they kill off some of the best of life and make us much less productive. They don't even make people happy." Our politicians should read that every day at least three times.
. Dot "Rush Limbaugh: Democrats Will Try to Keep Economy Shut Down to Ensure Trump Loses Re-Election." Would Democrats intentionally harm the country just to prevent the re-election of Donald Trump? You can bet on it! Of course they would.
. Dot "'Chaos.' 'Fraud.' Democrats once Warned against Voting Changes They Now Call for."
. Dot "Neurosurgeon Says Face Masks Pose Serious Risk to Healthy People." Interesting. Politicians are forcing face masks on us, while at the same time, some experts say that's dangerous.
. Dot "Obama and Me: How I Knew Obama Was a Bad Guy before Anyone Else."
. Dot "The Real Cost of Coronavirus, and Forever-Lockdown-Leftists Who Want a Life without Risk." Interesting perspective.
. Dot "Horowitz: We Have Been Lied to: 6 Facts that Change Everything We Know about SARS-CoV-2."
. Dot "House Democrats Tell Supreme Court They May Impeach Trump again by 2021." They are turning Congress into a funny farm. And gravely harming the country. But they'll do anything they think will lessen the chance Donald Trump will be reelected.
. Dot "UPDATE: Susan Rice Tells CBS Joe Biden's Quid Pro Quo with Ukraine Was at the Request of Barack Obama." Wow! Evidence the corruption began at the top. Will there be accountability? Of course not.
. Dot "Liberals Would Rather People Die than Have Hydroxychloroquine Work." That says a lot about today's state of affairs.
. Dot "Acts of Treason." People need to fully understand how serious the Obamagate scandal is.
. Dot "CNN Was Used to Spread Lies and They're Just Fine with that." And by so doing, CNN harmed the country. A lot.
. Dot "There's No Longer Any Question: Biden Carried out a Cover-up in Ukraine." Three words describe Biden: "Corrupt, corrupt, corrupt."


. Dot "The Rule of Law Is Gasping for Breath."
. Dot "Cuomo: I Guess We Need to Change Our Disastrously Terrible Coronavirus Policies for Nursing Homes." Do you think?
. Dot "Nevertheless, Sidney Powell Persisted." And some justice was served.
. Dot "New Letter from Former Obama DOJ Officials Points to Who the Real Traitors Are . . . and It's Not Michael Flynn." The traitors are all . . . Democrats.
. Dot "Actor Kevin James' Short Film Brutally Mocks Coronavirus Social Distancing Snitches, Police Response." It captures where we are perfectly.
. Dot "Boom: Did Clapper Perjure Himself when Testifying about Flynn? He's Going Down!" Perhaps, but I'm not holding my breath.
. Dot "San Diego Supervisor Says Only 6 of 194 Coronavirus-Recorded Deaths 'Pure' Coronavirus Deaths." What do you think about that?
. Dot "Over Half of US Counties Have Had No COVID-19 Deaths."
. Dot "Stanford University Doctor: 'You Are Mistaken' if You Think Coronavirus Lockdowns Provide Safety."
. Dot "'We'll Just Get Rid of All Whites in the United States' -- CDC Chair of Advisory Committee on Immunizations Lashes out at White Americans (VIDEO)."
. Dot "Garbage in, Garbage out." And lots of garbage is going in.
. Dot "State's Coronavirus Death Toll Drops Significantly after Officials Make Major Criteria Change." All of a sudden, all of the numbers are in question.
. Dot "There Is Justice, and then there Is Poetic Justice."
. Dot "Confirmation: Chinese Officials Told Labs to Destroy Coronavirus Samples." That certainly isn't news. It has been known for months.
. Dot "Does Pelosi Believe a Baby Has a Right to a Mother?" Apparently not.
. Dot "CDC Updates Guidance to Say COVID-19 'Does Not Spread Easily' through Touching Contaminated Surfaces."
. Dot "COVID-19 Dashboard by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University."
. Dot "BOMBSHELL: Election Official Rigged Election Results for Democrats, Constituted 'Significant Percentage of the Total Votes,' DOJ Says."


. Dot "Biden to Resume Funding of Palestinian Authority." Another Israel hater apparently.
. Dot "Andrew Cuomo Claims 'Every Life Is Priceless.' He Just Doesn't Believe It."
. Dot "Declassified Info Shows John Brennan 'Suppressed' Intel Suggesting Russia Wanted Hillary to Win." Of course. Putin knew Hillary would be a pushover, but Trump might be trouble for Russia. Of course Putin wanted Hillary to win. It would be stupid for Putin to favor Trump.
. Dot "Obamagate Is Not a Conspiracy Theory."
. Dot "Biden Campaign Gets Caught Deceptively Editing Video to Make President Trump Look Bad."
. Dot "WSJ Columnist Notes the Obvious Reason Why the Left Goes Ballistic over Anything AG Barr Does."
. Dot "PBS Uncovers More Alleged Victims of Joe Biden's Unwanted Touching."
. Dot "Obama Officials Said on TV that Trump Colluded with Russia -- They Said Otherwise under Oath." There should be some penalty for this. Particularly when it damages the country so much.
. Dot "Above the Law: The Inside Story of How the Justice Department Tried to Subvert President Trump." Democrats would impeach President Trump on a burp, if they could. When they don't have any valid reason to impeach, they come up with an invalid reason.
. Dot "Cuomo: It's Trump's Fault that I Issued an Order Forcing Nursing Homes to Take COVID Patients." Poster child for taking no responsibility.
. Dot "Stacey Abrams Lashes out at 'White Voting Base,' Laments Illegal Aliens 'Are No Longer Able to Elect Anyone Who Represents Them'." Obviously a racist.
. Dot "Joe Biden's Words Cut Deep. This Is why."
. Dot "Mr. President, Here's How You Stop the Democratic Scam of the Century."
. Dot "FINALLY! Amy Klobuchar Admits Miracle Drug Hydroxychloroquine Saved Her Husband's Life."


. Dot "The Intolerant, Ingrate Left Wants Christians to Stop Helping COVID-19 Victims." In the name of tolerance.
. Dot "Children from Philadelphia Islamic Center Issue Threat in Video, 'We Will Chop off Their Heads'." The "religion of peace" strikes again. Another thought: I don't see YouTube racing to remove this video from the Internet. Why do you suppose that is?
. Dot "Islamic Call to Prayer Blaring 5 Times a Day during Coronavirus Lockdown Sparks Noise Complaints in Los Angeles." A preview of things to come across America.

I think these articles are of particular importance.
(I'll leave them posted here indefinitely.)


. Dot "The Open Border Strategy." If the Left succeeds, America's freedom will be lost, probably forever. Please read this article.
. Dot "How Do Civil Wars Happen?" This is so good! I hope you have a chance to read it!
. Dot "Pelosi Explains the WRAP UP SMEAR Tactic Democrats Use." So, we see the Democrats' chief political tactic: lie. I hope this doesn't come as a surprise.
. Dot "Autopsy of a Dead Coup."

Made in the USA

Costco sells Goodyear wiper blades for almost half the price that you will pay on the outside and they are made in the USA.

Unfortunately, our politicians and top CEOs have pushed for trade to China and Mexico for years so Americans are now out of work. Did you know that there is no electric coffee maker made in the US and that the only kitchen appliances made in the US are made by Viking? Hopefully, this has changed or will soon!

I didn't know Hallmark cards were made in China. That's why I don't buy cards at Hallmark anymore, they are made in China and are more expensive! I buy cards at Dollar Tree -- 50 cents each and made in USA.

I have been looking at the blenders available on the Internet. KitchenAid is MADE IN THE USA. Top of my list already.

Yesterday I was in Wal-Mart looking for a wastebasket. I found some made in China for $6.99. I didn't want to pay that much so I asked the lady if they had any others. She took me to another department and they had some at $2.50 made in USA. They are just as good.

Same as a kitchen rug I needed. I had to look, but I found some made in the USA -- what a concept! And they were $3.00 cheaper.

We are being brainwashed to believe that everything that comes from China and Mexico is cheaper. Not so.

I was in Lowe's the other day and just out of curiosity, I looked at the hose attachments. They were all made in China. The next day I was in Ace Hardware and just for the heck of it I checked the hose attachments there. They were made in USA.

Start looking, people. In our current economic situation, every little thing we buy or do affects someone else -- most often, their job.

My grandson likes Hershey's candy. I noticed, though, that it is now marked "Made in Mexico." I don't buy it anymore.

My favorite toothpaste, Colgate, is made in Mexico. Now I have switched to Crest.

My challenge to you is to start reading the labels when you shop for everyday things and see what you can find that is made in the USA. The job you save may be your own or your neighbor's!

Stop buying from overseas companies -- you're sending jobs there. Let's get with the program and help our fellow Americans keep their jobs and create more jobs here in the USA.

Smiley Face


World's Best

Pinocchio, Snow White and Superman are out for a stroll in town one day. As they walk, they come across a sign: "Beauty contest for the most beautiful woman in the world."

"I'm entering" said Snow White.

After half an hour she comes out and they ask her, "Well, how did you do?"

"First place!" said Snow White.

They continue walking and they see a sign: "Contest for the strongest man in the world."

"I'm entering," says Superman.

After half an hour he returns and they ask him, "How did you make out?"

"First place!" answers Superman, "Did you ever doubt me?"

They continue walking when they see a sign: "Contest! Who is the greatest liar in the world"

Pinocchio says, "This is mine."

Half an hour later, he returns with tears in his eyes. "What happened?" they asked.

"Who the heck is Adam Schiff?"
