I have been on vacation for just over a week, which gave me plenty of time to reflect on the state of America today—though I tried to disconnect for most of my time away, Ivey will tell you it is very difficult for me. I have been this way since long before the handheld self-hypnotizing smartphone in my hand. I became enamored with current events while I was in elementary school.
Growing up, my dad had us in front of Walter Cronkite every single night during dinner or right afterward.
I remember watching the reports from Vietnam and the spreading Watergate scandal—and every night, the update on those killed or missing in southeast Asia—I have been paying attention ever since.
Now, of course, it’s much easier with the spread of devices and social media—however, the quality of the information seems to have declined dramatically since my childhood.
While I was away, I watched as Republicans celebrated their false win on a debt ceiling deal that far more Democrats than Republicans voted for. The deal will add another $4 Trillion to the already staggering and potentially fatal $31.5 Trillion in debt we are already carrying. Plus, on January 2, 2025, the debt ceiling will be raised again automatically.
Where is the win in that?
I see the border is still open, and thousands are pouring in every day as so-called charities enrich themselves at the expense of the taxpayers, your kids, grandkids, and the future of this country.
I also read a fascinating and vetted letter from a retired judge who wrote a few years ago trying to figure out what the hell we are doing as a nation.
The letter has even been authenticated by the far-leftist Snopes, who called the judge and got his confirmation that he had written it.
So, in case you have not been enlightened by the now-deceased judge, I want to share his December 2021 letter, originally published in a California paper, with you:
Opinion From a Former Judge
I am a student of law whose age is 85. My first year of college was 68 years ago. One class I took was political science. A half page of my textbook essentially outlined a few steps to overturn a Democracy.
Here is the list he gave—
1) Divide the nation philosophically.
2) Foment racial strife.
3) Cause distrust of police authority.
4) Swarm the nation’s borders indiscriminately and unconstitutionally.
5) Engender the military strength to weaken it.
6) Overburden citizens with more unfair taxation.
7) Encourage civil rioting and discourage accountability for all crime.
8) Control all balloting.
9) Control all media.
He concluded his letter to the editor this way:
What was printed in 1954 as a possible diabolic nightmare has become an emerging reality. I hope that Americans will unite enough to pen a good finish- God willing.
Keith M. Alber
As I read the headlines far from America’s shores and compared it to the list Judge Alber penned less than two years ago, I must ask, why are millions so oblivious to what is obvious to any honest person?
The judge did miss just a couple of things that have also been turned into weapons—but he didn’t miss much.
First, he failed to mention censoring and silencing anyone who didn’t adhere to the orthodox position on a political spectrum.
Judge Alber also failed to identify the dangers of weaponizing the FBI and DOJ to target and destroy political opponents of those in the West Wing. Of course, that has happened in America for decades, but not to the degree that was first unleashed with Barack Obama in the White House as he used the office to diminish and handicap his successor, and now, prop up a guy who can barely walk.
I mean, Joe Biden should never have said, ‘Watch me.’ Joe, we’ve been watching, and honestly, pal—it has not been pretty.
Any honest person knows Joe Biden is not in charge of anything inside the Beltway. Those that are, however, are absolutely ruthless. I am sure at some point, I, too, will be silenced… one way or the other. Maybe I will face the final solution at the hands of the American government. A couple of years ago, that would have seemed far-fetched—but it draws closer by the day.
The Uni-party celebrates raising our national debt by trillions while funding a proxy war in Europe and kneeling at the feet of the Chinese Communist Party.
Sure, there are some exceptions like Rand Paul, Jim Jordan, Matt Rosendale, and, of course, Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis—but when more Democrats than Republicans in both houses vote for the so-called fiscal responsibility something or other while Republicans pat themselves on the back for a huge win, something is very wrong.
These people are not looking out for you, which begs the question, who exactly are they looking out for? And since they aren’t, who’s looking out for us? With the scandals in Washington—more specifically, Democrat scandals—being buried by the media and the intelligence communities, do we still stand a chance?
The good news is yes—because of courageous whistleblowers and a media that now has permission to write unflattering stories about Joe Biden, his incompetence, and that of his administration.
