Time To Clean House

 The Democrats knew they had no chance of impeaching Trump. That wasn’t  their goal.  They were trying to destroy not only Trump but the entire Republican Party, and chastise everyone who voted for Trump. They wanted to condemn in front of the nation all attempts to discredit the election and hence their puppet-president - Joe Biden. 

The entire kangaroo impeachment  trial was an absurd blending of unreasonable argument with no evidence.  As so-called evidence, the House managers showed outrageously misleading cuts of film and inflammatory footage showing the perpetrators of the intrusion of the Capitol, whom we all agree were wrong and should be dealt with under the law.  This did nothing to prove that Trump was the instigator. The only other support of their argument they had were reports from mostly left-winged news outlets. 


In his closing argument Trump’s lawyer expressed the outrage we must all feel at the bloated hypocritical theatre presented by the Democrats. He didn’t just speak for Trump. He spoke for us. It wasn’t just Trump on trial. It was us. All of us who supported and voted for a man who did some great things for our  country and stood by his promises to us.  


There were some who were not outraged. They likely didn’t vote for Trump. They are phony, arrogant politicians who shouldn’t be a part of the Republican Party. We know who they are, I don’t need to repeat the six names. Two will be gone on their own. The others need to go and we need to support any effort to be rid of them from representing the Party.

China Joe

 Now that Joe is no longer running some of his shenanigans or how he got rich schemes are coming out. Here is just one that has implications for decision making in the new administration. According to Politico:

At the University of Pennsylvania, there is a thing called the “Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement.” The man who has been running the Penn Biden Center since it was founded in 2018 is a guy named Tony Blinken, Biden’s nominee to be the new US Secretary of State.


The Penn Biden Center under Blinken’s leadership took in more than $20 million in anonymous donations from Chinese nationals. And the Penn Biden Center according to an article in Politico is now refusing to disclose the identities of those Chinese.


The  Penn Biden Center is almost entirely bought and paid for by anonymous Chinese donors. There are a few other people who worked there who are also moving over to the White House.  


The list includes White House counselor Steve Ricchetti, Brian McKeon who headed to the State Department, the new Undersecretary of Defense for Policy Colin Kahl, the new deputy UN ambassador Jeff Prescott, and three other people that Biden has appointed to the National Security Council.


All of these people are required, obviously, to fill out financial disclosures during the nominating process. But they’re all just going to write that they were paid salaries by this Penn Biden Center. And the Penn Biden Center is refusing to disclose its list of anonymous donors from Communist China.

Biden Strikes with First Leftist Acts

Eager to train wreck the successes of the Trump presidency,    Biden has been quick to initiate actions to dismantle Trump programs that increased economic prosperity in the country, grew jobs and provided the country with a more secure environment. Here’s just a shortlist of what he has been up to. More than ever Republicans have to work together through our Republican led states and other legal channels to fight this agenda

Here are just a few of the leftist pleasing actions Biden has taken in the nascent days of his Presidency. 


  • He rejoined the World Health Organization which covered up China’s role in spreading the coronavirus, rewarding them with upwards of $450 million a year for the privilege of being the WHO’s largest donor. 


  • Despite high unemployment and the pandemic, he put a moratorium on deportations of illegal aliens which has encouraged caravans from central America 


  • He revoked  the permit for the Keystone Pipeline which will kill thousands of good-paying jobs 


  • He signed an order letting boys compete in girls’ sports events if they identify as transgender putting biological girls in jeopardy of  losing their role in sports and scholarships.  


  • He halted new oil, gas and coal leases on public lands and water and rejoined the Paris Climate Accord is certain to be a job killer and will ultimately increase fuel prices

First Goal - Save Our First Amendment Rights

When I hear Katie Couric say on the lefty Bill Mayer show that Republican congressmen and women who were Trump supporters would need to be “deprogrammed” and listen to distainful remarks from Willy Geist regarding what constitutes almost half of America, I know something is terribly wrong.  These are not hard line political commentators. These are soft side not particularly erudite TV hosts that would in normal times be overseeing cooking segments with celebrity chefs or chatting up an actor on his new film. Yet there they are chirping out dangerous comments on the American people. 


They are part of a bubble that encapsulates the majority of our media. Most of the people they talk to and work with every day hold views similar to them — Trump bad, people who support or supported him, bad also. They believe they, the bubble brigade, represent the country. People who hold contrary opinions seem weird and even sinister to them or at best malprogrammed needing reprogramming or worst yet total silencing. 


But there is a more dangerous component to this. The  big tech leadership that controls modern communication and provides the screens  that our children spend a great deal of time using are intrinsically linked to this bubble. Hence, they provide the people who want to shut down opposing viewpoints the tools for doing just that. We only have to look at how the New York Post was stopped from echoing negative but accurate information on Joe Biden during the election and worst still how President Trump and other conservatives have been banned from the major social media platforms.  These corporations have grown so powerful that they can effectively squash free speech. It’s a new problem that requires new solutions, before unelected corporate elites who are part of the bubble control the flow of information for the entire country.


And the solution doesn’t lie just in finding and using other marginal platforms -  you already see what happens there, Parler is just an example. We have to stand together on issues that are important - free speech the main one of them. Start locally. Blast the local paper with letters now. Contact your local and state representatives on this issue now. Stay on the main stream social platforms and blast away going to the pages of elected officials and  influencers and insist that companies not be enabled to restrict our first amendment rights. It is nonsense to say that these social giants are private companies that can do what they want - they are monopolistic utilities that control access to huge populations.  These platforms are the printing presses of today and we can’t be silenced on them if we are to remain a free people. We also need to resort to email, snail mail and other traditional ways to get our message out.  - tmurtha
