Betrayed at the Top

It’s not just our political leaders who can’t be trusted to represent conservative values.

As a Conservative, I have to confess I see less of a problem in having to deal with Biden, Schumer and Pelosi, than in having to accept that McConnell, McCarthy and Cheney constitute my party’s leadership.

One day, God willing, those Democrats will be gone from the scene. But the fact that our party is being led by three hacks who hate Donald Trump means that even if these three are gone, they will be replaced by like-minded shills for the globalists, and that the likes of Jim Jordan, Devin Nunes, John Kennedy and Josh Hawley, will continue to be voices in the wilderness.

As it happens, it’s not just our political leaders who can’t be trusted to represent conservative values. Consider the important role that pollster Frank Luntz plays in formulating policy for the GOP and providing our puppets with their talking points.

It took Tucker Carlson to confirm what I have long suspected; namely that Luntz is a closet Liberal passing himself off as a Conservative.

It should come as no surprise that that most of his clients are left-wing corporations, including Google, Coca Cola, Walt Disney, Amazon, the Chamber of Commerce, Delta and Facebook. In short, he represents the interests of those who have been punishing the state of Georgia and deplatforming Donald Trump and those who support him.

The GOP is often inviting Luntz to help formulate strategies and talking points. It’s like putting the fox in charge of the farm’s egg production.

What Luntz does for a living is lie and then get a phony “cross section” of the nation that agrees with his lies. That is how he gets away with telling us that Republican voters approve of amnesty for illegal aliens and are in favor of “commonsense” gun control legislation.

Clearly, Mr. Luntz travels in different Republican circles than I do. And, furthermore, my focus group is a lot larger than his.

Finally, the question must be asked if there is any lie that Mr. Luntz won’t tell if there is enough cash on his barrelhead. I ask because he actually pimped on behalf of Perdue Pharmaceutical, the company that turned millions of Americans into drug addicts by pushing Oxycontin until it was coming out of our ears and the number of deaths attributable to overdosing shot through the roof.

As if all that isn’t bad enough, someone should tell Mr. Luntz that when it comes to toupees, you should always go top of the line. It’s the one time you don’t want to go shopping in the trunk of a 2007 Saab.


I never put much stock in UFOs, mainly because they only seem to be sighted by guys named Rufus in the hinterlands who happened to be out late at night looking for roadkill.

I figured if you had just flown a kazillion miles through space, it wouldn’t be to make contact with folks who considered truck-flattened raccoon the epitome of fine dining.

But suddenly, we’re getting reported sightings from Navy pilots and radar operators. They’re all pretty consistent about the unbelievable speeds and maneuvers of the vehicles they’re witnessing.

My question these days is why is it only our pilots and our radar operators who are filing reports? Nothing odd happening in the skies over France, Poland, Russia, China, Australia?

Perhaps we managed to pique their curiosity. I can see where they might want to try to figure out why a nation that could have elected Donald Trump decided to elect Joe Biden? I can understand their curiosity especially if they hadn’t heard about the 100 million phony ballots and the rigged Dominion machines.


The Democrats keep making references to the return of Jim Crow, while, predictably, it is they who are re-introducing the vile practice.

The latest example of it is taking place in New York City where the newly installed Chief Medical Officer, a black woman named Michelle Morse, is promoting race-based medical care, mandating preferential treatment for blacks and Latinos.

Can you imagine the outrage if a white woman pointed out that between the burning and the looting, white people have suffered enough this past year, and would therefore be given preferential medical attention in recompence?


Has anyone else noticed that Mariska Hargitay of “Law & Order” looks exactly like Caitlyn Jenner?


Nobody really expects the propaganda media to be even-handed when it comes to reporting the news, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t mention their duplicity when it’s particularly blatant.

When President Trump banned flights from China, the media pack attacked him as a racist, a bigot and a xenophobe. But not a peep do we hear when Joe Biden bans flights from India, home to 1.2 billion people of color.


I never tuned in when it was still on the schedule, but I have become addicted to the re-runs of “The Big Bang Theory.”

While watching an episode the other evening, I found myself thinking about other sit coms I have enjoyed; specifically, about my favorite characters and the actors who brought them alive.

Near the top of the list was Carl Reiner, who played a multitude of roles on the old Sid Caesar variety shows.

Others on the list would be Phil Silvers as Sgt. Bilko on “You’ll Never Get Rich;” Steve Landesberg as Det. Sgt. Arthur Dietrich on “Barney Miller;” Valerie Harper as “Rhoda Morgenstern on "The Mary Tyler Moore Show;” Danny De Vito as Louie De Palma on “Taxi;” Christopher Lloyd as Rev. Jim Ignatowski on “Taxi;” Kelsey Grammer as Frasier Crane on “Cheers;” David Hyde Pierce as Nils Crane on “Frasier;” Harriet Sansom Harris as Bebe Glazer on “Frasier;” Jim Parsons as Sheldon Cooper on “The Big Bang Theory;” Mayim Blalik as Amy Farrah Fowler on “The Big Bang Theory;” and Kathy Cuoco as Penny on “The Big Bang Theory.”

If some of your favorites are missing, it’s very likely it’s because I never tuned in to such fan favorites as “Friends,” “Sex and the City” or “Ally McBeal.”

But while we’re in the neighborhood, I should mention that my three least favorite actors/characters in the history of sit coms were Jeff Conaway as Bobby Wheeler on “Taxi,” Anthony LaPaglia as Simon Moon on “Frasier” and, worst of all, Melissa Rauch as Bernadette Rostenkowski, whose nose is where punchlines went to die.

Apparently, she claims she was doing her mother’s nasal delivery as the character. Too bad she wasn’t channeling her father. I have barely been able to understand two consecutive words coming out of her mouth. Too bad the producers didn’t think to provide subtitles when she was speaking.


It’s bad enough that we are going to have to depend on China to provide our electric cars with lithium batteries. But if they go ahead and invade Taiwan, they will pretty much control the world’s microchip supply.

Isn’t it high time we started manufacturing the necessities of life in the 21st century?


I’m not exactly Nostradamus, but I feel I’m on solid ground when I predict that archaeologists in the 34th century will be exchanging fist bumps and high-fives after uncovering not only the bones of Jimmy Hoffa, but the long-rumored existence of the Durham Report.
