Editors note:- The opinions below are mostly my opinions. Please feel free to agree or disagree with them in the comment section.

**** I have written a small opinion near the bottom of this blog on the huge, correct, and may I add brave, decision by the SCOTUS on Roe vs Wade.


First I want to mention the Electronic Surveillance Unit (ESU) which are a part of the DC Metropolitan Police Department. It appears that they had multiple members of this surveillance group surveilling the crowds at the January 6th protest. Yes – embedded in the crowd performing electronic and other surveillance on the mostly peaceful protesters. Their job was to “document the actions of the demonstrators and MPD’s response to any civil disobedience or criminal activity.” ( Hmmmm. Wonder if the Portland police had a similar unit embedded with the violent rioters of the domestic terrorist group, BLM? )

So what could be wrong with this group surveilling the Jan 6th protestors? I see one immediately. Surveillance, electronic or other of US Citizens requires warrants.

( According to Wikipedia the definition of Surveillance is the monitoring of behavior, many activities, or information for the purpose of information gathering, influencing, managing or directing. Spying. )

Electronic surveillance requires warrants. Period. I want to know what type of warrants, in what jurisdiction were sought – if any.

Interestingly the ESU is not listed among the 37 specialist units of the MPD. In the reports the members are not called officers or policemen, so I think they are citizen members, possibly private contractors. Were these private contractors paid to paint the protest in a certain way sympathetic to the left? Was the results of that surveillance doctored? Apparently the members had a special bracelet on their left arm to allow other law enforcement officers to leave them alone. Were they instigating problems to fit the leftist narrative? To help destroy Trump?

Speculation is rampant that there were FBI, plainclothes Capitol Police members and other federal agents interspersed in large numbers throughout the protest. Speculation also has these people instigating the problems that occurred leading to the murder – yes – murder of an unarmed female protester who was no threat to anyone by a cowardly Capitol Police Lt.

I think the above is an attack on our civil liberties. What say you?

DAY 2. “Menstruating people”

This is the term that apparently has garnered popularity with the WOKE women of the extreme left when it comes to referring to females. Michigan’s Gov. Gretchen Whitmer , a total clown even among the radical left, is the latest to use the term. She was talking about executive actions she could take if Roe vs. Wade was repealed. In her words “I brought a lawsuit on behalf of all the menstruating people in Michigan — 2.2 million.”

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. another extreme libtard, is another woman to have used this terminology when she referred to a woman as a “menstruating person” last year and was highly ridiculed on social media. The way this term is bandied around is part of the LGBTQUI agenda and is evidence of a further moral collapse in Americas society.


The following So Called Republicans listed a few paragraphs below, and I mean just look at the list, are joining DemonRats in another gun control Bill, just another feel good, knee jerk reaction to the Texas school shooting. America. There are over 20,000 firearms bills already on the books! Over 20,000!! How about enforcing those as opposed to writing more and more? Since January this year 110 bills containing the word GUN have been introduced in Congress.

Just yesterday, Tuesday, the 64 to 34 vote in the Senate voted to bring the newest monstrosity to the floor for a vote this week and a signing by usurper and mentally challenged Uncle Joe by the end of the week. This is an 80 page Bill most have not read. It expands background checks, increased funding for what I consider unconstitutional red flag laws, funding for mental health and schools. There are extra penalties on straw purchases which are illegal anyway plus other feel good stuff. To me it is further evidence of an attempt to destroy the 2nd Amendment and further whittle away at our freedoms, rights and liberties. Here is the list of RINOS that joined the left to ensure this Bill gets passed.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, and Sen. John Cornyn, Senators Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia, Joni Ernst of Iowa, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Todd Young of Indiana, Thom Tillis and Richard Burr of North Carolina, Susan Collins of Maine, Mitt Romney of Utah, Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, Rob Portman of Ohio, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Roy Blunt of Missouri.

DAY 3 Continued:-

Andrew Gillum, the former mayor of Tallahassee who ran for governor against Ron DeSantis, just got indicted on multiple federal charges including conspiracy, 19 counts of wire fraud and making false statements to the FBI. He made false solicitations from undercover FBI agents for campaign contributions from 2016 – 2019! ( Just my opinion but if he had been a Trump appointee this case may have come out much quicker! ) You may all remember him. In 2020 he was found naked in a hotel room with two other naked men with drug residue and alcohol all around!! A fine upstanding Democrat. Gillum obviously denies it all. After all, he is a black politician, male and therefore the charges are either a political hatchet job or a racist issue!!

Good old Andy. Drugs, alcohol, homosexual lovers all most likely on the tax payers dime!!

Boy, Florida sure missed and dodged a huge bullet having come too close to having this corrupt and perverted druggie as Governor!!

DAY 4.

It is time to act to stop school shootings. We have created a draft letter that readers can send to all U.S. Senators to pass laws to stop school shootings. We have titled it ‘The Stop It Now law.’

What we have noticed is that politicians have a do something mentality when it comes to school shootings. But their do something legislation focuses on the weapon of choice of the killer and not the killer himself.

The Stop It Now law focuses on the killer and only the killer or potential killer or killers.


Dear Senator ___________________

I ask that you pass before Tuesday, November 8, 2022 a law to prevent violent criminals from attacking our most innocent and vulnerable, the children in our schools. We have seen too many children killed or maimed and criminals not getting tried rapidly and charged in a way that sends a clear signal that this type of attack will not be tolerated by you and your fellow Senators and members of Congress.

It’s past time to take action. 

I suggest calling this new legislation The Stop It Now Act.

The Stop It Now Act would:

  1. Make it a federal crime to plan to enter any school at any level with the intent to do harm to either students or teachers.
  2. If a person, or persons, does enter any school at any level with the intent to do harm to either students or teachers then that person, or persons, would be charged with a federal crime and if convicted with each count being a life sentence in a federal prison.
  3. If any person or persons does enter any school at any level and that person or persons harms or kills either a student or teacher then that person or persons are charged with a federal crime and if convicted are then executed by a means currently used to execute others, e.g. terrorists.
  4. That those who aid or abet a person or persons in carrying out an attack on any school with the knowledge that the person they aided had the intent to harm or kill a student or teacher be prosecuted under provisions 1 and 2 above.
  5. Repeal any and all “Gun Free Zones” federal legislation. Allow each state to decide how to best protect their students and teachers from those who wish to do harm to students and teachers at all levels.
  6. Allow for the introduction of volunteer security personnel who are retired military or law enforcement officers after vetting.

I ask that you and your staff work across party lines to pass such legislation and have it signed by the president before Tuesday, November 8, 2022.

A strong will can accomplish anything. Jack London

How many of you agree with this sentiment that Biden is a non legitimately elected president and believe other states, especially Red States, copy this now?

Another question. How many of you want to see the truth come out about the Biden Crime family? Copy and paste this link for the story.

DAY 5.

We Have Been Draining Our Strategic Oil Reserve on the Pretense of Lowering Gas Prices and We have been Shipping a Portion of Our Reserve Oil to Europe.

The Purpose of the Strategic Oil Reserve is to Keep Our military and Critical Infrastructure Functioning In Time Of War or Massive Natural Disaster.

The Purpose of the Strategic Oil Reserve is Not Meant to Supply Suzy and Billy Cheap Gas For Their Jet Ski.

Using Our Survival Resources as a Political Gimmick when We Are Poking the Bear/Russia in the Butt and The Bear Is Threatening Nuclear War if we Keep Supplying Weapons to the Ukraine is to Say the Least Insane .

DAY 5 Continued.

The US Navy has produced a training video with more rainbows in it that a box of the new Kellogg Gay Pride cereal they developed for Pride month with GLAAD (aka the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation). The video is about gender pronouns and us and attempt to create “Safe Places” and to enable those sailors watching and supposedly learning to be able to advertise their friendliness to the LGBTQUI members! Below is a link to the actual video. Please feel free to hit it and watch as I am sure our enemies will – while they are laughing their heads off and rubbing their hands together in glee. This insanity is happening in all branches of our once proud and strong military. I think anyone who has worn a uniform or lost friends in action will be as sickened as I was to watch this disgusting video which does one thing. It destroys our military and our ability to defend our country.

General Mark Milley, ( traitor extraordinaire – where is the lamppost? ) Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, reported that over 5.3 million hours and more than $535,000 has been spent on extremism “stand-downs.” Those numbers include 530,000 hours and $477,000 dedicated to Diversity Equity and Inclusion training. Seems like a great way to spend our tax money. Anyone agree? Here is the link. Copy and paste.

DAY 6.

Schools must follow Bidens LGBTQUI policies to get federal aid!! The Biden administration has ruled that public and those private schools getting federal aid, must abide by their insane LGBTQUI policies if they want to continue receiving school lunch funding from the federal government. Remember, federal funds are our funds. Our taxes. Our money. Do you remember the movie and book series ‘The Hunger Games’? This is kinda like a perverse version of that. This corrupt and evil and very un-American illegal regime is putting kids meals at schools at risk should the school district or management not follow this extremely leftist theology. They are using hungry children, most of which will come from minority and poorer areas, as pawns in a vicious game to push this evil gay agenda.

A comparison was made that let’s say a conservative Governor like Floridas Ron DeSantis had said that if schools do not force teachers to train and carry guns in the classrooms, he would immediately cease all state aid to those schools and districts. The liberal left would have gone absolutely berserk. Their heads would have exploded (not altogether an unattractive thought) and protests and riots would follow! Somehow though, using hungry kids in mostly poorer districts is ok though to these libtards.

DAY 7. Finally- My opinion on something that bothers me!

Many of you know my wife and I live in the Tampa Bay Area, travel a lot and love to EAT!!! Yeppers!! All food styles and from all nations. You also probably know that I am banned from most Social Media due to my opinionated opinions!! I do however from time to time get to look at my wife’s Facebook page to see comments etc. on my blog and to keep up to date with friends activities. Some are enjoying good food but that food is coming predominantly out of very Liberal run cities like for example St Petersburg ( the new San Francisco) and Tampa. The ideals, lack of morals and ethics and the beliefs of their governing bodies, added to the “Wokeness” of these cities populations are not mine. I cannot support any of them with a clear conscious. Financially or otherwise. I cannot support their businesses and establishments. I do not agree with anything they support.

When I see friends who I know to be conservatives supporting these towns, cities and their businesses, I get upset. Why would they use their money to support an agenda so foreign and disgusting and un-American? By supporting these leftist run businesses we are helping to further their sick agenda.

Just my opinion America!

******* Here is my opinion on the decision made by SCOTUS overturning Roe vs. Wade.

The decision in 1973 by the Federal Government and an extremist liberal Bench to make the clinical mass murder of our future as a nation a ‘constitutional right’ should never have been made. This was, is and always should have been a State decision. The ruling by a very brave SCOTUS, despite threats to them and their families lives and homes, is 100% constitutional and correct. The people who support the Pro Choice brigade seem to be mentally deranged and challenged as even the very basic use of contraception, which is largely free, escapes them. This same group of inbreds feel that 25 year olds shouldn’t be responsible for their college debt. They also think a 13 year old should vote and a 4 year old can make a decision on sex changing procedures and medications. So sorry that the constitution stops these liberals from being able to continue the mass extermination of mainly minority babies.

The point is when a life is formed in a woman’s womb, there are two bodies involved and two lives, the woman’s AND the babies. The woman has no constitutional right to murder, using obscene and cruel methods, and destroy that babies life. Liberals are mentally challenged individuals, unable to hear or listen to truth and fact. They don’t allow truth to come between them and their sick agenda.

America had had enough when abortion up to birth was allowed – nay, openly embraced and encouraged. You see, give libtards an inch and they want a yard, give them a yard and they want a mile. No matter how sick, immoral or unethical their agenda, they will fight for it using Hollywood, the MSM and a massive propaganda campaign financed by their huge private and corporate donor groups. Liberals never mind when a liberal court discards conservative ideals but reverse it? Heck no. To hell with the constitution and the rule of law will be their attack on SCOTUS and anyone who agrees with the verdict.

There are several very dangerous groups, whose ideology is inflamed with the rhetoric of people like Obama. To name a few, Jane’s Revenge, Our Rights DC etc are all planning violent protests nation wide. America. These are the true “Domestic Terror Groups” that can get away with anything under this evil Administration and it’s corrupt and treasonous DOJ. To date the attempted assassination of a SCOTUS Judge has not been decried by the Biden Administration along with the dozens of attacks, vandalism and threats to and on pro life centers and churches. Nope. Not even being investigated by the BIDEN DOJ.

America. A good thing happened today. It does not ban abortion. It does not endanger minorities. It puts more power where it belongs. In the individual States who now will be able to make laws and rules according to the majority of voters in those states. Just like the constitution always said.

I guess it will be a great distraction for Bidens economic policies which have resulted in massive inflation and almost unaffordable food shopping!! Never let a good crisis go to waste!!

FINALLY —— For those interested please hit the links below to get the wonderful and informative, plus educational, articles from contributors to my blog for years. Please feel free to give me your opinion on this my first weekly blog. I know it is a longer read with lots of links to hit but do it at your leisure!!

An interesting take on Electric Cars from a conversation:

“As an engineer I love electric vehicle technology However, I have been troubled by the fact that the electrical energy to keep the batteries charged has to come from the grid, and that means more power generation and a huge increase in the distribution infrastructure. Whether generated from coal, gas, oil, wind or sun, installed generation capacity is limited.


In case you were thinking of buying hybrid or an electric car…

Ever since the advent of electric cars, the REAL cost per mile of those things has never been discussed. All you ever heard was the mpg in terms of gasoline, with nary a mention of the cost of electricity to run it.

Electricity has to be one of the least efficient ways to power things, yet they’re being shoved down our throats. Glad somebody finally put engineering and math to paper.
If you really intend to adopt electric vehicles, you will face certain realities. For example, a home charging system for a Tesla requires 75 amp service. The average house is equipped with 100 amp service. On a small street (approximately 25 homes), the electrical infrastructure would be unable to carry more than three houses with a single Tesla each. For even half the homes to have electric vehicles, the system would be wildly over-loaded.

This is the elephant in the room with electric vehicles. Our residential infrastructure cannot bear the load. So, as our genius elected officials promote this nonsense, not only are we being urged to buy these things and replace our reliable, cheap generating systems with expensive new windmills and solar cells, but we will also have to renovate our entire delivery system! This later “investment” will not be revealed until we’re so far down this dead end road that it will be presented with an ‘OOPS…!’ and a shrug.

If you want to argue with a green person over cars that are eco-friendly, just read the following. Note: If you ARE a green person, read it anyway. It’s enlightening.

Eric test drove the Chevy Volt at the invitation of General Motors and he writes, “For four days in a row, the fully charged battery lasted only 25 miles before the Volt switched to the reserve gasoline engine.” Eric calculated the car got 30 mpg including the 25 miles it ran on the battery. So, the range including the 9-gallon gas tank and the 16 kwh battery is approximately 270 miles.
It will take you 4.5 hours to drive 270 miles at 60 mph. Then add 10 hours to charge the battery and you have a total trip time of 14.5 hours. In a typical road trip your average speed (including charging time) would be 20 mph.

According to General Motors, the Volt battery holds 16 kwh of electricity. It takes a full 10 hours to charge a drained battery. The cost for the electricity to charge the Volt is never mentioned, so I looked up what I pay for electricity.

I pay approximately (it varies with amount used and the seasons) $1.16 per kwh. 16 kwh x $1.16 per kwh = $18.56 to charge the battery. $18.56 per charge divided by 25 miles = $0.74 per mile to operate the Volt using the battery. Compare this to a similar size car with a gasoline engine that gets only 32 mpg. $3.19 per gallon divided by 32 Mpg = $0.10 per mile.

The gasoline powered car costs about $25,000 while the Volt costs $46,000 plus. So the Canadian Government wants loyal Canadians not to do the math, but simply pay twice as much for a car, that costs more than seven times as much to run, and takes three times longer to drive across the country.


My blog is changing.

Hard times create strong men. Strong men create good times. Good times create weak men. And, weak men create hard times.

I have been writing my blog daily for many years now and it has had readership in multiple countries, sometimes as many as 30 plus. Readership numbers have varied from several hundred a day to 8000 plus.

It is the variance that puzzles me. I think maybe one of the reasons some days are less read than others is maybe my readers and followers are deluged with so much information daily from so many sources. Also I believe many prefer a video to the written word. Also we are busier just trying to survive the horrors of this regime.

I am not a video blogger! First many wouldn’t understand my mixed up mongrel accent!! Having lived in multiple countries has this affect!! Secondly that form of social media source does not interest me personally. Thirdly, the time it would take is beyond that which I have.

I think right now in future I may write a short résumé of the weeks daily political news as I see it and publish it once a week. Say on a Saturday. If something vital happens I always have the opportunity to add a blog to that week. For those readers in England my weekly blog will continue as usual appearing Saturday.

That way my followers would only have one main blog a week to read should they so desire.

By now you all know much about me. I may be a Rhodesian by birth but I am 100% American by choice and by being blessed to be here. Instead of bleeding green and white as I previously did, ( Rhodesia’s colors ) I bleed red, white and blue. My love of this constitutional republic has no end.

I am former law enforcement officer, who took an oath that doesn’t have an expiration date. I am an Oath Keeper. I have many friends in the military and our special operations. Those friends are both active and retired but share my love of this beloved country.

I know right from wrong. I know everything happening today is wrong. I understand treason. I support the prosecution and the death penalty for treason. I am a Christian. I am a family man. I do not support the LGBTQUI radical agenda. I do not support BLM. I do not support ANTIFA. I do not support the New Black Panthers. I do not support racism or anti semitism. I do not support one iota of the New Socialist Democrat Party. I do, however, support the entire MAGA agenda as making America great should be the first job of any president.

I do not believe in big government. I believe no government has the right to do anything that happened world wide but here too during the China Virus pandemic. It is not the job of government to dictate our movements, job abilities or what we put in our bodies. After all, the left says, “Our bodies, our choice” when it comes to murdering our unborn children.

Many who know me know neither my wife or I locked down for one hour, nor did we wear masks apart from Doctor visits. We refuse the so called vaccine which I call a shot. We think it is child abuse to give 6 month old and up kids this shot. We think it is child abuse for parents to push the whole wokeness programming on young kids under 18. Parents allowing young kids to have transgenders reading sexually themed stories in public libraries we also see as child abuse.

I believe in a strong military of well trained heterosexual men and women whose job is to annihilate our enemy mercilessly, not caring about if they have the full support of the limp wristed person alongside them. Not worrying about offending them. Just doing their job, killing enemies of the state, foreign and domestic. I trained and served in the Rhodesian military, the finest military in the world in the 70’s, with the highest kill rate. We were trained to kill and kill we did.

I believe in strong law enforcement, well trained and fairly enforcing our laws. I served as a Deputy Sheriff here for 17 years.

I believe in a strong and secure border. Well patrolled by a strong paramilitary force. I believe no person should illegally be here in this country. They should be caught and deported. No exception. We should have strong and fair immigration laws and anyone wishing the rights and benefits of being a US Citizen or legal resident, should apply, as I did, wait, pay and do it correctly once vetted.

If any of you have opinions on this blog and my future direction, you all know how to get a hold of me.

I am sorry but I have a few pictures of our inept, cheating, criminal, mentally challenged so called president who, as many of you know, when he is not falling upstairs on Air Force One, is falling off his bicycle. They are just a few of the better ones I have seen, especially the one with President Donald J Trump in it! Enjoy the laugh America because he is a part of why our country has become a laughing stock.

Remember the Disinformation Governance Board? Here They Go Again, It’s Even Worse Now, With Kamala

Remember the Disinformation Governance Board? They supposedly had stopped that after the uproar over it, but White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said that the work would continue.

It sounds as if they just might have repackaged it, shifted Departments, renamed it, and put Kamala Harris in charge now. Instead of Big Brother, we now can have Big Sister. And the wording here may be even more troubling because they’re already talking about the internet platform effect.

They’re calling it an internet policy task force, with the goal of “developing programs and policies” to protect “public figures” and journalists from “disinformation,” “abuse” and “harassment.”

A presidential memorandum establishing the new task force describes a sweeping mission to protect people who seek out a role in public life from online critics.

“In the United States and around the world, women and LGBTQI+ political leaders, public figures, activists, and journalists are especially targeted by sexualized forms of online harassment and abuse, undermining their ability to exercise their human rights and participate in democracy, governance, and civic life,” the memo says.

“Online abuse and harassment, which aim to preclude women from political decision-making about their own lives and communities, undermine the functioning of democracy.”

The new task force’s members include other Biden heavy hitters, such as Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, Attorney General Merrick Garland and Secretary of State Antony Blinken.

The panel will hold its first meeting Thursday afternoon. Within 180 days, it will submit to President Biden a blueprint that “outlin[es] a whole-of-government approach to preventing and addressing technology-facilitated gender-based violence, including concrete actions that executive departments, agencies, and offices have committed to take to implement the Task Force’s recommendations.”

Within a year, the board will issue a report with “additional recommendations and actions” advising broader steps that can be taken by internet platforms, state and local governments and schools, the document says.

In other words, going back to what everyone thought the Disinformation Board was supposed to be about — stopping criticism and questioning of the regime. How is this even real, questioning public figures and journalists is baked into the very nature of being American–as part of that thing we call the Constitution? The announced purpose seems even more dystopian than the prior board. Not to mention that they’re already saying they’re going to be targeting changes on internet platforms.

A Biden official tried to claim this was going to focus on illegal conduct. But if that were true, you already have avenues to do that through federal law enforcement, and this even talks about criticism of public figures, so that’s a lot of bull. It practically screams “First Amendment violation” all over the place and is an effort to silence dissent–coincidentally, right before the midterms in which Democrats are about to take a bath because of their bad policies and lies.

The memo says, “The Task Force shall work across executive departments, agencies, and offices to assess and address online harassment and abuse that constitute technology-facilitated gender-based violence, including by … developing programs and policies to address online harassment, abuse, and disinformation campaigns targeting women and LGBTQI+ individuals who are public and political figures, government and civic leaders, activists, and journalists in the United States and globally.”

It’s not just about protecting the Democrats; it reads like we’re going to protect the media and famous people from criticism by the peasants. If this were a legitimate exercise, why is it covering only famous or well-known people? Again, when they employ this kind of language, it screams that restrictions or censorship is coming. When they keep trying so hard to suppress our freedom of speech, right before the midterms and into the future, you have to wonder what they are intending to do that they know will earn criticism.

Plus, hasn’t Kamala failed enough at what she’s been tasked to do? Do you have to give her something else that people are going to (rightly) rip her apart over?

If we screamed over the DGB, we need to double the volume now over this.

Traitors together. Both equally dumb but dangerous!

Why are gas prices so high? It’s the refineries stupid!

Today American’s are seeing the highest gasoline prices in their lifetimes at over $5.00 a gallon on average.

QUESTION: Why is this happening?

ANSWER: It’s the oil refineries stupid!

In 1982 there were over 250 operating crude oil refineries in the United States; that number declined to 132 by 2019.

As of January 1, 2021, there were 129operable petroleum refineries in the United States a decline of 3 since 2019.

According to Zehl & Associates five of America’s ten largest oil refineries are located along the coastline of the Gulf of Mexico.

  • #1: Motiva Port Arthur Manufacturing Complex, Texas.
  • #2: Marathon Galveston Bay Refinery, Texas.
  • #3: Marathon Garyville Refinery, Louisiana.
  • #4: ExxonMobil Baytown Complex, Texas.
  • #5: ExxonMobil Baton Rouge Refinery, Louisiana.

NOTE: If a major hurricane hits the Texas and Louisiana coastline then these refineries will shut down.

The remaining six of the top ten are:

  • #6: BP Whiting Refinery, Indiana
  • #7: CITGO Lake Charles Refinery, Louisiana
  • #8: ExxonMobil Beaumont Complex, Texas
  • #9: Marathon Los Angeles (Carson) Refinery, California
  • #10: Chevron Pascagoula Refinery, Mississippi

These 10 refining facilities alone can process 2.6 million barrels of crude oil per calendar day. Texas is home to four of the ten largest refineries in the United States, the entire Texas Gulf Coast Region – including Corpus Christi, Port Arthur, and Beaumont – accounts for more than 87% of total production in the state of Texas and more than a quarter of the nation’s total production.

The U.S. Energy Administration (USEA) has a chart showing the Number and Capacity of Petroleum Refineries.According to the USEA here are the operable barrels per calendar day (BCD) by year:

  • 2016 – 18,317,036 BCD
  • 2017 – 18,617,027 BCD
  • 2018 – 18,598,497 BCD
  • 2019 – 18,802,435 BCD
  • 2020 – 18,976,085 BCD
  • 2021 – 18,127,700 BCD

Note that under President Donald J. Trump the production of barrels per day increased during his term by 658,049 BCD. Also note that since the inauguration of Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. the BCD has dropped 848,385 BCD in just the first year.

Less production, higher prices.

The Bottom Line

Biden has blamed everyone and everything but himself for the highest average price of gasoline in our history.

What we can say is that our American refineries are handling significantly lower numbers of barrels per calendar day since Biden entered the White House.

Why? Because America is producing fewer barrels per calendar day of oil.

The Epoch Times’ reporter Jack Phillips on Tuesday, June 14, 2022 wrote:

Chevron CEO Mike Wirth said in a recent interview that he does not believe another oil refinery will be built again in the United States, saying that government policies are a key reason why, as average gas prices continue to rise as of Tuesday.

One hundred and twenty-one fewer refineries since 1982, dropping production of barrels of oil per day since Biden took office and no more new oil refineries due to government policies are in fact the “key reasons” why we have the highest gas prices ever in the U.S.

It’s the oil refineries stupid!

We report, you decide who is at fault.

EDITORS NOTE: Add to this the warning that the American electrical grid will almost certainly die… from natural causes. In a Center for Security Policy article titled For the cost of less than 1% of the Biden infrastructure bill we could protect our electric grid from certain collapse Tommy Waller Director of Infrastructure Security wrote:

Most Americans regard the sun as a positive source of energy for the planet – nurturing plant life and powering solar panels to help provide the electricity we need to sustain modern civilization. And while we know that we must be protected from the harmful UV rays the sun produces, which cause injury such as sunburn and skin cancer, most don’t realize that the sun can produce even more powerful effects, damaging infrastructure both in space and on earth.

Unless America takes action to protect against the hazard of solar weather, it is nearly certain that we will suffer a catastrophic loss of our electric grid sometime in the future. The Center for Security Policy’s Director of Infrastructure Security Tommy Waller recently testified before the Secretary of Energy Advisory Board (SEAB) to explain why, and what must be done about it.

Watch the June 2022 Secretary of Energy Advisory Board meeting to understand.

Proposed Government Solutions Ignore the Presence of Nuance, and Perpetuates Unintended Consequences

Government is not the solution to the problem, government is the problem

We continue to see a push for legislation to cure America’s ills.  Red flag laws for guns, on demand abortion available in the name of women’s rights, prosecution of “insurrectionists”, all of these are being touted as a solution or cure.  But the reality still remains, that evil will always be present in this world.  Evil acts are a physical manifestation of Satan and the control that he has over our flesh.  You cannot pass legislation to end evil.  You can take action to minimize evil and incentivize moral behavior, but you cannot stop the Prince of Darkness with a bill that comes out of congress.

There are nuances that come with these “feel good” proposals in congress, and there are unintended consequences that result from those nuances.  Sometimes the proposed government solution can be abused and manipulated in order to expose loopholes in the law.    The worst legislation to ever come out of the halls of congress, has been a result of a knee jerk reaction to an event or crisis.  It is the “do something” mentality that has destroyed liberty in America. The definition of tyranny is said to be, “The deliberate removal of nuance.” The USA Patriot Act is a prime example of the government abuse that is tolerated by the people when there is fear among the citizenry.  If you acknowledge that the government has the authority to suspend portions of the constitution in a time of crisis, then the government, in its quest for power and authority, will create a crisis to exploit. Use the Reichstag fire in pre Nazi Germany as a point of reference.  There is too much trust in government. People have a tendency to believe the government narrative, even when it doesn’t make sense, because they believe that our government has credibility. Jim Garrison once said, “Is the government worth preserving when it lies to the people?  Doesn’t it become a dangerous country when you cannot trust anyone anymore, when you cannot tell the truth?’ Garrison then sternly asserted this familiar maxim, “Let justice be done though the heavens fall”.  He was of course referring to his case against New Orleans business man Clay Shaw, regarding the alleged conspiracy in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Do we seek justice anymore, or have we decided to forego justice and replace it with political expediency?  Garrison’s words are still very relevant today. 

Do you not think that the government creates crises to push agendas?  Try running “Operation Northwoods” through an internet search and read the declassified documents.  Or maybe dig into the Gulf of Tonkin incident that was used to justify going to war in Vietnam.  Our government does not deserve our trust or respect, if they continue to lie to us, take advantage of us and waste our hard earned tax dollars on other countries and promotion of sexual deviancy.  All of this while our so called representatives, enrich themselves and become multi-millionaires after only a few terms. 

Why is knee jerk legislation dangerous even when it sounds good on paper?  The answer is nuance and unintended consequences.  These two forgotten components are never part of the legislation being proposed and there is little thought into how these things may affect implementation of said law after it goes into effect.  We’ll start with Red flag laws and the very concept of imposing such law on the masses, opening Pandora’s Box when it comes to abuse and manipulation. Hypothetical scenario, a couple is getting a divorce and the woman wants to get under the skin of her soon to be ex so she makes an accusation that leads to a man having his guns confiscated in the absence of due process, because a bitter ex-wife or husband to be fair wanted to get back at their former partner.  What about a leftist progressive that lives in a neighborhood where they find out their next door neighbor possesses firearms?  An accusation is made about the gun owner to trigger confiscation of a law abiding citizen’s weapons.    These are just unintended consequences that make things worse.  This is on top of the fact that due process is being scrapped here totally.  Even if the allegations are legitimate, the accused still has a right to due process.  Suggesting anything less is putting forth a “minority report” enforcement mentality. These loopholes and the total disregard for due process and the 5th and 6th amendment, are not highlighted in the legislation, and there is no acknowledgment of these pitfalls as congress scurries to appease the activist mob.

Let’s move onto abortion laws, and the potential abuses that may exist in drafting state legislation if the SCOTUS sends regulation on the issue back to the states.  Once again, a hypothetical but realistic scenario; a woman gets pregnant and does not want to have the baby, and she lives in a state that has strict abortion restrictions but makes exceptions for rape and incest.  In order to justify her abortion, she accuses the partner that she had of rape, which leaves the accused no alibi, because he was with her.  Even though it was consensual from the perspective of both parties, the woman screams rape because she wants an abortion.  I believe that if a state passes abortion restrictions with an exception for rape, that state would see rape accusations skyrocket.  So on abortion, we must not attempt to appease the moderates.  Life is life, period.

Now onto the so called “insurrection”, and the screams from the left to prosecute any and all involved.  BLM and ANTIFA are generally given a pass, and released soon after arrest, but because they subscribe to a leftist ideology, they are handled with kid gloves.  They are certainly not subjected to the same scrutiny.  This is my warning to both sides of the aisle, and to all ideologies across the spectrum of the electorate. Be careful what you wish for, because there will be a day when there is someone in the White House, in control of the DOJ, that wants to target political opposition, and they are at the opposite end of the political spectrum from where you are. Be careful when you demand peoples’ heads on a silver platter. German born Martin Niemöller, son of a Pastor, wrote a poem that I think is relevant to this subject.

“First they came for the communists, and I did not speak out – because I was not a communist;

Then they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out – because I was not a socialist;

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out – because I was not a trade unionist;

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out – because I was not a Jew;

Then they came for me – and there was no one left to speak out for me.” Martin Niemöller

We have to stand up for the rights that we have as individuals as dictated by God, not government. We must be consistent in our defense of these rights, not selective, based on political ideology. If we don’t take this seriously, the law is dead, and all that is left is tribalism and warring factions. I hear many people cite the 14th amendment when it comes to equal protection under the law. However, I have to submit, that if we are all given equal protection, we must all be held accountable under the same law. Translation: government officials from either side of the aisle, should not be immune to prosecution when corruption/wrongdoing are present.

Red Flag Laws Circumvent Due Process in the Name of “Safety”

The age of, “guilty until proven innocent” is upon us.

There is now a bipartisan gun control agreement in the US Senate with 10 Republican Senators on board.  Those 10 Republicans must be named, and I will do it here.  John Cornyn (TX),  Thom Tillis and Richard Burr (NC), Roy Blunt (MO), Bill Cassidy (LA), Susan Collins (ME), Lindsey Graham (SC), Rob Portman (OH), Mitt Romney (UT) and Pat Toomey (PA).  There are several components of this proposed bill, but I want to focus specifically on the red flag laws that have been proposed.  These laws have already been implemented in multiple states. These are nothing but feel-good laws that are pushed through to make the self-righteous people in positions of power feel like they are doing “something” and that they are the saving grace that is needed to keep people safe.  Bottom line here, is that you cannot legislate evil away.  No piece of legislation is going to keep evil people from doing evil things no matter how broad.

Let’s talk about some problems with red flag law mentality.  First of all, from a constitutional standpoint, red flag law is basically gun confiscation in the absence of due process.  This means that if someone tips off the government, you know, “see something say something”, you are then deemed guilty until proven innocent.  Yes, your guns are taken away until you prove your innocence.  A judge is responsible for making this decision and as we all know our judiciary has given us reason to be concerned about the abuse of authority that has been wielded by the courts in recent years.  Using the gun debate as a pretext for revoking constitutional rights in the name of “safety”, is reprehensible. There was always going to be pretext to justify the tyranny.   There was always going to be a reason for the power grab, and the Marxists are masterful at tugging on peoples’ emotions as a catalyst for their destructive policy ideas.

Allowing the courts to decide who needs to have their 2nd Amendment rights revoked because Joe Blow down the street says that they heard them say this or that, and that may suggest the person in question is capable of x, y or z.  We are all individuals, and no two people are alike.  Different experiences, how someone is raised, home life during their impressionable years, one parent, two parents, same sex parents, all of these and relevant genetic predispositions have a role in establishing how an individual will react to their surroundings, and how they process the data that is acquired from the situational awareness that they may or may not have.  This is why having an algorithm, or “warning signs” is not going to be an effective way to predict things to come.  We are diving into a “Minority Report” dystopian nightmare, where the government could arbitrarily decide who gets to keep guns, and what individuals are not mentally stable enough to be armed.  

An armed society is a polite society.  What has kept us going as a country all these years?  One could argue it is the 2ndAmendment that has allowed us to keep our individual liberty intact.  Let’s look at the history of gun control on a global scale since the early 20th century.  Let’s start with Ottoman Turkey, 1915-1917 1-1.5 million Armenians (mostly Christians) were killed under the enforcement of Art.165, Pen. Code, 1866 & 1911 Proclamation 1915.  In this instance permits were required of gun owners, creating a registry of those holding weapons, and eventually a ban on possession.  

Fast forward to Soviet Union, 1929-1945, here political opponents and farming communities were targeted, resulting in 20 million being killed, via Resolutions, 1918 Decree, July 12, 1920, Art.59 and 182, Pen Code, 1926.  This began with licensing of gun owners, then went to banning possession, withsevere penalties for violations.  

Nazi Germany and Occupied Europe, 1933-1945, 20 million Political opponents, Jews, gypsies, and critics were killed under the Law on Firearms and Ammun., 1928 Weapon Law, March 18, 1938, and Regulations against Jews, 1938.  Registration and licensing, stricter handgun laws and ban on possession were some of the features of these Nazi firearms restrictions.  

This continues into the 20th century in China 1927-1949 (10 million killed), then again in China throughout the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s (20-35 million killed), Guatemala 1960-1981 (100,000 to 200,000 killed), Uganda 1971-1979 (300,000 killed), Cambodia 1975-1979 (2 million killed), and Rwanda 1994 (800,000) killed.

More recently, Venezuela went from being the wealthiest country in South America, to being a socialist nightmare where people are starving and utilizing their own pets for food as basic necessities are inaccessible.  In 1992 Venezuela was the 3rd richest country in the Western Hemisphere.  In 2001, Venezuela voted for a Socialist President to address “income inequality”.  In 2004, their private healthcare system is completely socialized.  In 2007, all higher education was made “free”.  Come 2009, the Socialist government banned private gun ownership.  In 2014, Political opponents are imprisoned.  In 2016, food shortages become commonplace and widespread.  In 2017, Constitution and elections are suspended.  Then in 2019 the people were being massacred by their own military under orders from the socialist dictator, living in luxury while his people suffer.  It only took that long for a prosperous country to be reduced to a third world hell on earth.  This was ultimately made possible by preventing the masses from defending themselves from a tyrant.

Gun bans/confiscation always ends the same way, mass genocide.  You give them red flag laws now, and they will have the bureaucracy residing in the alphabet soup agencies to take the rest of our freedom.  The 2nd Amendment is non-negotiable.  “SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED”!  Seems pretty clear to me.  Gun Control?  Hell NO!

Seems like a filthy lie to me!

At a time in our countries history, with high computer and surveillance technology, it seems strange that the irresponsible culprit who deliberately released the possible reversal of the Roe vs. Wade decision from the Supreme Court has not been caught or even identified publicly. There has to be a forensic electronic trail.

The deliberate act of that release has placed huge security concerns for SCOTUS Judges and their families. There has already been an attempted assassination and/or kidnap attempt by a typical lunatic leftist. Since that leftists attempt there has been a virtual blackout of information by the MSM on the story. After all, the biggest threat to our national security, according to them, is white conservative males who are all linked, due to the color of their skin and their political beliefs, plus a belief in God, the constitution and a love of country, together as domestic terrorists and therefore a terrible risk to what they call a democracy as they are all too stupid to know we live in a constitutional republic and not a democracy.

However, due to their belief I just mentioned in the previous paragraph, there seems to be no end to their talents of detection in finding every person who attended the January 6th protest at the Capitol building. Just being there seems to be so serious a threat to their idea of national security that everyone must be arrested, mostly on trumped up charges, plus have their constitutional rights removed.

They are after all well versed in trumping up charges and lies. After all, look at the huge lie on the Russian collusion story. They also are so good at covering up their lies when found up which we see with the Hunter Biden laptop and the crime syndicate run by the mentally challenged usurper in the WH.

In their minds the 940 riots by ANTIFA and BLM which caused billions in property damage, thousands of injuries to law enforcement plus a whole load of deaths, were peaceful and just protests against a racist system that is evil and the cause of why America is such a terrible country. No arrests needed there. Nope. Nothing to see or worry about.

When we retake the House in November we must start investigative committees to investigate thoroughly everything these libtard enemies and traitors of our Constitutional Republic have done over the last 60 years if needed. Those investigations to include all the Clinton crimes, his obvious pedophilic tendencies, the corruption which runs deep in every alphabet agency starting with the CIA, FBI and ATF. We must fully investigate the joke that was the 2020 election. We must fully investigate the failures in our military by its leftist political leadership starting with General Mark Milley. We need to fully investigate the actions of that corrupt and leftist leaning Capitol Police Force and how that black Lieutenant Bird murdered a small white military veteran female Ashley Babbitt on January 6th was praised rather than investigated, arrested and charged. She presented no threat. She was unarmed. She was murdered plain and simple. Shot through a door. Just reverse the roles for example here. A white police officer shooting a small black unarmed female who offered no threat would have been vilified within an hour. His family details like his residential address etc. would have been linked. He would have been tried in the news media frenzy, found guilty and lost everything.

The elections two nights ago show that we, the people, have had enough. It is time for a moderate, historically middle of the road America, to come together and stop this madness. There will be pain. We will have to be brave. We will have to be resolute and strong but we need to fully cleanse the swamp once and for all and save our beloved Constitutional Republic for our kids and their kids. Saving America will save the world which has also lost direction without a strong America to lead from a position of strength.

This election season will be headed by Hispanic citizens as they are decent, God fearing, hard working, family loving people. The New Democratic Socialist party does not represent them or their vision of America. They want safe cities to raise their kids – like us. They want good schools that teach real education like math and English – like us. They want law and order and safety for themselves and their families – like us. They want a secure border – like us. They want freedom of speech, religion and the ability to peacefully protest – like us. They do not want their kids taught Wokism and sexual perversion from age 4 – like us. They do not want a radical and tyrannical government either left or right – like us.

Let’s show these leftists, socialists, communists and extremist anarchists that they will no longer be tolerated. They must be destroyed.

Isn’t America worth that? Aren’t our kids and their kids worth it?


44% of Young Male and 32% of Young Female Democrats Say ‘It’s Acceptable To Assassinate a Politician’

The poll was taken in the wake of the Kavanaugh assassination attempt. Hitler youth …which was always the Democrat goal.

Kavanaugh killer’s contents: He was arrested with a suitcase containing a tactical knife, a Glock 17 pistol with two magazines and ammunition, pepper spray, zip ties, a hammer, screwdriver, nail punch, crow bar, pistol light, duct tape, hiking boots with padding on the outside of the soles. Apparently he intended to take Kavanaugh’s wife and daughters hostage.


By Matt Margolis, PJM, Jun 09, 2022:

The attempted assassination of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh should have universally shocked Americans. It seems that, out of basic human decency, people should have a real problem with resorting to violence and killing over differences in opinion on public policy, regardless of what side of the aisle they’re on.

Americans come together in the aftermath of tragedies such as mass shootings, natural disasters, and other highly publicized events that leave families shattered. Yet, people apparently have different attitudes about political assassinations.

According to a recently released poll, nearly half of male Democrats under the age of 50 (44 %) say it’s acceptable to assassinate a politician “who is harming the country or our democracy,” the highest percentage of any age/gender/party demographic.

The poll, which was conducted by Tulchin Research for the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), also found that nearly a third of younger Democrat women and younger Republican men agreed with the statement, as did 40% of younger Republican women.

Perhaps the most striking aspect of the poll is the generational difference. Older men and women of either party are significantly less likely to approve of the assassination of political opponents than their younger counterparts.

Party identification aside, it is clear that the younger generations are not being taught to respect the lives of others, particularly of their political opponents. This is a perilous path, especially when you consider the way the Democratic Party frequently accuses Republicans of being threats to democracy — while demonstrating that the violent rhetoric of Chuck Schumer was likely more dangerous than we thought.

ATF is revoking firearm licenses ‘at a rate of about 500% greater’ under Biden

Federal firearms dealers are getting their licenses revoked or not renewed by the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms at a much greater rate since President Biden first came to office, Rep. Andrew Clyde (R-GA) said Wednesday.

“Federal Firearms Licensees are being denied renewals or their licenses are being taken away at a rate of about 500% greater since Biden was in office [than in] previous years,” Clyde said during a Second Amendment Caucus press conference.

“So it is definitely obvious that the Biden administration is targeting Federal Firearms Licensees because they are the link between manufacturers and people being able to access their Second Amendment rights,” he said.

Clyde, a federal firearms licensee who owns a store in his Athens district called “Clyde Armory,” said that “the motto of my company is we enable individual participation in the preservation of liberty” by giving people access to guns.

“They enable individual participation in the preservation of liberty, because that’s the only way a person, other than making one themselves, can get a firearm in his hands through a manufacturer is through a Federal Firearms Licensee,” he said. “So if you cut out the Federal Firearms Licensees, then you have denied the American citizens their right to keep in bear arms through not being able to buy a gun. So it’s a problem.”

According to Alan Gottlieb at the Second Amendment Foundation, his organization gets many calls from FFL’s every week telling his group the same story.

“Not so much just a revocation [of an FFl license], but also a fine and just being harassed. There’s a lot more of that going on under the Biden restriction than ever before,” Gottlieb said. “The last time anybody really did anything like that was under Bill Clinton. Bill Clinton figured less guns would be sold if there were less FFL dealers to start with, and so he went out to shrink the number of FFL’s.”

The National Rifle Association-Institute for Legislative Affairs says that Mr. Biden’s administration is running “Clinton playbook again – operating a ‘zero tolerance’ policy that is shuttering FFLs over trivial violations. This sort of schizophrenic policy-making could give the impression that this ‘strategy’ has been motivated by anti-gun politics rather than concerns about violent crime.”
