America First

It’s been said that a conservative is a liberal who’s been mugged by reality.

We all see the complete breakdown of civilization that is taking place in our country.  It’s one of the reasons why 79% of Americans believe our country is heading in the wrong direction.  It’s why crime and “the government/poor leadership” have become top concerns for so many.
 
The government’s number one responsibility is to keep its citizens safe.  But the Biden Administration is clearly failing.
 
There are vicious assaults, rapes, carjackings, organized lootings and gang shootings on a regular basis. Businesses are closing solely because of out-of-control crime.
 
Virtually every major American city has drug-addled, often criminally insane homeless individuals defecating in public, assaulting citizens and harassing businesses.  No local, state or federal official has the moral courage to do something about it.
 
Our culture is unraveling in front of our eyes.  And it’s happening in direct proportion to how quickly our commitment to Judeo-Christian civilization is unraveling. 
 
As more Americans reject faith and reject American exceptionalism, we see more violence on our streets.  This is what our Founders meant when they said only a virtuous people can remain free.  We are on our way to losing our freedom.
 
Elizabeth Gomes, a mother of five, recently experienced something that no woman should ever have to face.  On her way to work, she was brutally attacked in a New York City subway station by a vagrant with a long criminal record, including beating his own grandmother to death at the age of 14.
 
After the brutal assault, Gomes wandered the station for 20 minutes looking for someone, anyone to help her.  Now she’s speaking out.
 
What struck me is that this woman who has probably never attended a conservative conference and who probably doesn’t subscribe to conservative publications, just summarized the core of the Make America Great Again message.  Here’s what she said:
 
“Obviously, the government or nobody is doing anything for us.  When we’re out there, we’re by ourselves.  We’re fighting these battles by ourselves.  And what do they do?  They try to help other countries that have nothing to do with what we’re going through in our own place.”
 
That’s the entire reason Donald Trump is such a force in American politics!  Many Americans are desperate for someone in government to put them and our country first.
 
Every day we are reminded just how far down the list of priorities we are to our own government.  Congress is about to approve another $12 billion in “emergency” aid for Ukraine just weeks after U.S. troops were told to go on food stamps as a solution to “Bidenflation.”
 
It’s been said that a conservative is a liberal who’s been mugged by reality. 
 
Sadly, the number of victims suffering from the left’s radical policies – whether it’s Biden’s open borders, defunded and demoralized police departments or mutilated children who regret uninformed and impulsive decisions – is growing by the day.
 
Biden’s Broken FBI
 
Kudos to Kyle Seraphin!  He’s an FBI special agent and a courageous whistleblower.  Seraphin is one of the “good guys” who exposed the FBI’s spying on parents at school board meetings.  He recently spoke with Dan Bongino, who has an extensive background in law enforcement. 
 
Seraphin told Bongino that he has become increasingly frustrated with the overly-politicized FBI, and that many agents like him have retired and left the agency.  He knows agents who have had their careers destroyed simply because they attended, on their own time, President Trump’s speech on January 6th and never went to the Capitol.
 
As you may recall, the FBI had initially said there was no evidence of a planned insurrection on January 6th.  But we know the left never lets a “crisis” go to waste.  In the days that followed, Seraphin said, “The FBI has bought in, 100 percent, to the hype of January 6.” 
 
When the Bureau posted hundreds of pictures of people who were in Washington, D.C., that day and asked people to call in with tips, Seraphin said they were flooded with tens of thousands of “garbage leads” from leftists eager to rat out their conservative neighbors.
 
“America was just going crazy,” he said.  Liberals called to complain about someone they knew who “loved Trump” and “probably voted for Reagan,” even though they had no idea where the person was on January 6th. 
 
Shockingly, Seraphin suggested that many of these “garbage leads” were actually acted on.  We recently told you about one such situation.  
 
But the Bureau uses these “leads” to inflate the numbers of “domestic extremism cases” to create a false narrative that the country is on the verge of being overrun by “fascists.”
 
By the way, we also learned recently that the FBI lied to a judge in order to get a warrant to break into 1,400 safety deposit boxes.
 
Due to infiltration by leftist hacks, there is growing fear that the Federal Bureau of Investigation is becoming “Biden’s Gestapo.”  It is clearly broken and in need of serious reform.  But that won’t happen without new leadership in Congress. 
 
The Democrat Double Standard
 
Democrats are saying a lot these days about so-called “threats to our democracy.”  Well, one of the biggest threats to any society is two standards of justice.  Sadly, polls show that many Americans fear there is a two-tiered system of justice in America – one for the political left and one for Middle American conservatives and our leaders.
 
Two reporters have written a book about the first Trump impeachment, launched over a phone call with the leader of Ukraine. 
 
Perhaps the biggest bombshell in the book is that Rep. Jerry Nadler, the Democrat chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, adamantly believed that the entire process was “unfair, unprecedented and unconstitutional.” 
 
Why?  Because Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Rep. Adam Schiff were determined to deny President Donald Trump his right to due process, specifically the right to cross-examine witnesses.  They were determined to have a Stalinist show trial with a pre-ordained conclusion.
 
Sound familiar?  It should.  That’s exactly what we’re seeing now with the January 6th Committee.
 
Idiots Of The Day 

  • Mayor Eric Adams is bragging about New York City’s “brand.”  Hizzoner owes Elizabeth Gomes, the residents of his crime-infested city and the people of Kansas an apology. 
  • Sen. Amy Klobuchar claimed that Democrats and their radical climate change legislation will stop hurricanes.  Once again, a representative of the “party of science” blesses us with her wisdom. 
  • “Border Czar” Kamala Harris finally made it to a disputed border, only it wasn’t our southern border. 
  • Speaking at a White House event yesterday, “foggy” President Joe Biden called on Rep. Jackie Walorski.  Sadly, Rep. Walorski was killed in a car crash six weeks ago.
