Thuggery In America

28 01 2023

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

Moose Moosler commented at the UK’s MailOnline about the death in Memphis, Tennessee:

So it seems the ‘protestors’ don’t even know the 5 cops have already been fired and are up on charges of murder.  This nonsense has never been about what they say it is about.[2]

Since the anti-war demonstrations at Berkeley during the Vietnam War, and the Rodney King riots that began in Los Angeles, “professional” rioters have existed and spread their venom, like vicious vipers.

I have followed riots since my days in law school at Berkeley during that war, and then the Rodney King riots, and the burning of Washington D.C. after Martin Luther King, Jr. was killed in Memphis too.[3]

The thugs, slugs, hoods and mongrels of “Black Lives Matter,” Antifa and other far-Left groups have burned our cities; killed or injured innocent Americans including our police; and destroyed black and other businesses.  Yet, few have been incarcerated. 

Does law enforcement sometimes overreact?  Of course.[4]  Many officers are frustrated; others have resigned or taken early retirements; and it’s surprising that there are many left, certainly where riots have occurred.  Why risk one’s life, only to be attacked?

Who Controls America?

20 01 2023

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

I do not consider myself to be naïve.  Having spent two years in intelligence at the Pentagon with the highest security clearances possible at that time, and then having worked for three-and-a-half years in the United States Senate—and for many more years after that, working with the Congress and official Washington—I have seen both the good and the bad.  I was present when Joe Biden attended his first committee meeting, one month after his wife and daughter were killed in a tragic auto accident; and I had great sympathy for him.

I grew up in Hollywood (or Los Angeles), among the rich and famous; and I am not naïve about how the Harvey Weinsteins and their ilk have ruled that town for decades.  Women have been used and abused in both cities, like groupies at rock concerts.  It is what happens at the highest levels of power, throughout the world.  But every once in a while, something comes to my attention that incapsulates the evil that exists, and persists, better than I could describe it.  Last night it occurred in a monologue delivered by Tucker Carlson, which is worth repeating here.  I respectfully submit that it should be read (or viewed) in its entirety:

If you’re a normal person, it’s a pretty weird experience watching Joe Biden’s presidency get euthanized by his own party.  On one hand, there’s an undeniable thrill to it.  You have to admit that.  Biden is the most destructive president in American history.  More things have broken under his watch than under any other president.

Joe Biden deserves to be driven from office and disgraced, but for this?  Breaking federal classification rules, some of the stupidest and most dishonest laws Congress has ever passed?  It’s like arresting El Chapo for expired plates.  It’s missing the point, but it looks like that’s what’s going to happen.

It seems like every day, one of Joe Biden’s lawyers shows up with more sheaves of classified documents like a dog who has found another dead chipmunk under the house.  This bunch was in his office at Penn, the one paid for by the Communist Party of China.

These were found next to his sad, little midlife crisis sports car in a garage in Delaware and so on.  You keep waiting for the White House physician to announce another document trove has been discovered after a routine colonoscopy.  It could happen because at this point, you know exactly where this story is heading.

Permanent Washington does not want Joe Biden to run for president again.  This is how they’re sending that message.  Even CNN has decided to become interested in Joe Biden’s misdeeds two years into his presidency.  They’re doing segments in how classification laws protect this country from its mortal enemies like Russia.  So, you know for certain the order has gone out.  Biden is done.  What a missed opportunity this is.  If you’re looking for crimes that Joe Biden has committed, there is a very long list.

Our country is being invaded.  The world is on the brink of nuclear war.  American cities have become slums.  Our economy is in shambles.  Even our airplanes no longer take off on time.  It’s a disaster and Joe Biden and his staff have a hand in all of it.  In a country with a functioning government, Joe Biden would have been impeached before the first million illegal aliens crossed over our southern border, but no one did anything to stop it.  So now they’re arriving at the rate of a quarter-million a month.

GRIFF JENKINS: Customs and Border Protection sources exclusively tell Fox News more than 250,000 migrants were encountered at the border in the month of December, about as many people living in Scottsdale, Arizona, making it the highest month ever on record.  In Eagle Pass, Texas, the migrant surge continues.  Local Kinney County rancher Pam had a harrowing experience with migrants on her property.

RANCHER: I looked out the back and I could see three illegals walking up to the house.  I had gotten a gun, which is an AR-15.  I asked them, I said, “Please stop, go away,” and I had the gun in my hands and they just kind of looked at me and kind of smiled and I was like… “Just go away,” and they refused to do so. 

JENKINSThey’re on the other side of the glass trying to get in and not backing down?

RANCHER: Not backing down.  Even though I have a high-powerful rifle in my arms, they are not backing down.  That was scary.  

A rifle Joe Biden would like to take away from her.  So that, writ large, is the biggest story of our lifetimes.  It is the one thing Joe Biden has done that cannot be undone.  Our great-grandchildren are going to live with the consequences of this, but you’d never know it from watching most of the news.  There is an effective media blackout on Joe Biden’s immigration policies and other downstream effects on America.  There are too many strangers pouring in at once and as a result, the country is becoming chaotic.  Here’s a rare television news piece on what happened when officials in New York decided to house some of Joe Biden’s illegal aliens in a local hotel.

LAUREN SIMONETTI: An employee there says that migrants have made an absolute mess of the place.  You’re standing in front of it. Is that true?  

MADISON ALWORTH: Yeah, well, what we’re hearing from that employee is that the hotel is completely overrun.  He says, you know, of course, some people just looking for that better life, but as a result, the hotel is a mess and he fears for his safety.  

ROW NYC HOTEL EMPLOYEE FELIPE RODRIGUEZ: We don’t have any guests anymore.  They sold the entire hotel from the fourth floor to the 28th floor.  It’s all migrants.  So we got people who are getting drunk, using marijuana.  They are punching and beating their wives or their girlfriends.  We have teenagers running around wild around the hotel opening the fire exit doors and doing what teenagers do in the stairways and it’s a mess. 

“It’s a mess,” he said.  Of course, it is.  The whole country is a mess because Joe Biden has ignored immigration laws passed by the Congress.  That is a crime and it has killed huge numbers of Americans, hundreds of thousands dead from narcotics.

TOM WOLF, FORMER FENTANYL ADDICT: Fentanyl has changed the entire game here in San Francisco.  You can’t buy heroin out here anymore.  Nobody sells heroin and nobody uses heroin.  Everybody has transitioned over to fentanyl.  Fentanyl is the most dangerous drug to ever hit the streets in the United States in history.

SIMONETTI: Fentanyl has killed more than 70,000 Americans in 12 months.  Here in San Francisco, it’s the dominant drug.  It’s responsible for three-quarters of drug overdoses, brazen drug-dealing and rampant drug use in the shadow of city hall.  The same city hall, residents say, actively enable the fentanyl crisis.  

All of it.  Every gram came over an open border.  What’s notable as a political matter is that every one of these disasters, the fentanyl epidemic, the chaos and crime in our cities, the invasion underway through Texas, Arizona and California, all of those deeply concerned Americans.  We are not guessing at that.  Polls show it very clearly.

By contrast, how many voters do you think are lying awake right now worrying that public officials might violate some obscure federal classification law?  None, not a single person.  No one outside Washington cares or even understands the issue and yet it is classified documents, not our open borders, that the Justice Department is punishing Joe Biden for.  Why is that?  What’s going on here?  Well, it’s simple.  Washington is protecting itself.  Joe Biden alone is responsible for this crime.

He alone took home classified documents.  He didn’t have help in doing that, but allowing the country to be invaded, that’s not something you can do by yourself.  So, if Biden were to be taken down for opening the southern border, a lot of other people would go with them.  He had a lot of accomplices.  Permanent Washington doesn’t want that and ultimately and here’s the point: Permanent Washington is in charge.  It’s not the democracy you imagined.  We’re seeing that now.

So, if you want to understand, if you really want to understand how the American government actually works at the highest levels, and if you want to know why they don’t teach history anymore, one thing you should know is that the most popular president in American history was Richard Nixon.  Richard Nixon.  Yet somehow, without a single vote being cast by a single American voter, Richard Nixon was kicked out of office and replaced by the only unelected president in American history.  So, we went for the most popular president to a president nobody voted for.  Wait a minute, you may ask, why didn’t I know that?  Wasn’t Richard Nixon a criminal?

Wasn’t he despised by all decent people?  No, he wasn’t.  In fact, if any president could claim to be the people’s choice, it was Richard Nixon.  Richard Nixon was re-elected in 1972 by the largest margin of the popular vote ever recorded before or since.  Nixon got 17 million more votes than his opponent.  Less than two years later, he was gone.  He was forced to resign and in his place, an obedient servant of the federal agencies called Gerald Ford took over the White House.

How did that happen?  Well, it’s a long story, but here are the highlights and they tell you a lot.  Richard Nixon believes that elements in the federal bureaucracy were working to undermine the American system of government and had been doing that for a long time.  He often said that.  He was absolutely right.  On June 23, 1972, Nixon met with the then–CIA director, Richard Helms, at the White House.  During the conversation, which thankfully was tape-recorded, Nixon suggested he knew “who shot John,” meaning President John F. Kennedy.  Nixon further implied that the CIA was directly involved in Kennedy’s assassination, which we now know it was.  Helms’s telling response?  Total silence, but for Nixon, it didn’t matter because it was already over.  Four days before, on June 19, The Washington Post had published the first of many stories about a break-in at the Watergate office building. 

Unbeknownst to Nixon and unreported by The Washington Post, four of the five burglars worked for the CIA.  The first of many dishonest Watergate stories was written by a 29-year-old metro reporter called Bob Woodward.  Who exactly was Bob Woodward?  Well, he wasn’t a journalist.  Bob Woodward had no background whatsoever in the news business.  Instead, Bob Woodward came directly from the classified areas of the federal government.  Shortly before Watergate, Woodward was a naval officer at the Pentagon.

He had a top-secret clearance.  He worked regularly with the intel agencies.  At times, Woodward was even detailed to the Nixon White House, where he interacted with Richard Nixon’s top aides.  Soon after leaving the Navy, for reasons that have never been clear, Woodward was hired by the most powerful news outlet in Washington and assigned the biggest story in the country.  Just to make it crystal clear what was actually happening, Woodward’s main source for his Watergate series was the deputy director of the FBI, Mark Felt, and Mark Felt ran — and we’re not making this up — the FBI’s COINTELPRO program, which was designed to secretly discredit political actors, the federal agencies wanted to destroy — people like Richard Nixon.  And at the same time, those same agencies were also working to take down Nixon’s elected vice president, Spiro Agnew.  In the fall of 1973, Agnew was indicted for tax evasion and forced to resign.  His replacement was a colorless congressman from Grand Rapids called Gerald Ford.

What was Ford’s qualification for the job?  Well, he had served on the Warren Commission, which absolved the CIA of responsibility for President Kennedy’s murder.  Nixon was strong-armed into accepting Gerald Ford by Democrats in Congress.  “We gave Nixon no choice but Ford,” Speaker of the House Carl Albert later boasted.  Eight months later, Gerald Ford of the Warren Commission was the president of the United States.  See how that works?  So those are the facts, not speculation.  All of that actually happened.  None of it’s secret.  Most of it actually is on Wikipedia, but no mainstream news organization has ever told that story.  It’s so obvious, yet it’s intentionally ignored and as a result, permanent Washington remains in charge of our political system.

Unelected lifers in the federal agencies make the biggest decisions in American government and crush anyone who tries to rein them in and in the process, our democracy becomes a joke. Now, you may have noticed that the very first person in the Trump administration the agencies went after was Gen. Michael Flynn. Why Flynn? Because Mike Flynn was a career Army intel officer who ran the Defense Intelligence Agency. In other words, Mike Flynn knew exactly how the system worked, and as a result, he was capable of fighting back. Four days after Donald Trump’s inauguration, the FBI lured Mike Flynn into a meeting without his lawyer, concocted a series of fake crimes and forced him to resign.

So, that’s how things actually work in Washington.  Let’s stop lying about it.  Joe Biden, meanwhile, whooped like a hyena when the Justice Department destroyed Mike Flynn.  So, there is, we have to say, a certain perverse justice in watching something very similar happen to Joe Biden himself six years later.  Joe Biden does not deserve our sympathy.  He’s being shafted, but don’t weep for him, and yet, the rest of us do deserve a better system, an actual democracy.  When people nobody voted for run everything, you are not living in a free country.[2]

Can I attest to the accuracy of each and every fact and conclusion that Carlson has cited?  No, but they are close enough to what I know personally to be worth repeating here, and heeding.

Trump In 2024?

19 01 2023

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

Donald Trump has enemies galore—both foreign and domestic—some of whom would wish him dead.  Abraham Lincoln was killed by those who hated him; and the same was true of John F. Kennedy.  An assassin tried to kill Ronald Reagan; and it is not beyond the pale of reason to believe that an attempt might be made on Trump’s life.  After all, the FBI raided his home in Florida, while its Secret Service guards stood by and let it happen.[2]

Trump is the antithesis of everything that Joe Biden represents.  Biden embraces woke that is evil incarnate—beyond all reckoning—and a growing threat to our civilization.  Crime is unleashed; and it’s as though the lunatics are running the asylum.  Biden is corrupt and should be impeached and imprisoned, inter alia, having accumulated vast wealth illegally while being a public servant.  Trump was a businessman; and the attacks on him surely have dissuaded others in business from ever running for public offices.  Why expose their lives and families to nonstop scrutiny and vicious attacks?

Assuming Trump runs, he might pick former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo as his running mate.[3]. Philosophically they seem to be in tune; and Pompeo might be a positive influence on Trump—at least in terms of losing weight and slimming down.  After all, having been attacked nonstop since he began running for the presidency, food can often be a psychological refuge for Trump.

Recent polling shows Trump crushing Florida’s fine Governor Ron DeSantis, who may have a very bright political future after a second Trump presidency ends.[4]  Biden’s mental acuity keeps declining—and “flat-lining”—and the scandals swirling about him may doom him before next year’s elections.  The economy alone may sink his little ship.[5]  The fate of our great country may turn on these developments, and how we and our friends and enemies respond to them.[6]

The Tragedy That Is America Today

14 01 2023

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

God love them, many Americans are ignorant about politics, which has been true for generations.  Understandably they are focused on their day-to-day lives, and how to put food on their tables and a roof over their heads, and find schools that will educate their children.  Many have not moved far from where they were born and raised, and they have never traveled abroad.  But they have a gut and abiding sense about what is right and wrong.

Two tsunamis hit all of us: China’s Covid pandemic, and Brain Dead Joe Biden’s presidency.  Like whirlwinds, these two events turned things upside down.  Jobs were lost; businesses were shuttered; and lives were changed forever.  China has never paid reparations, much less in the trillions of dollars that are owed globally[2]; and waiting in the wings for Biden to croak are Willie Brown’s former ho Kamala Harris, and Nancy Pelosi’s California uber-Leftist relation Gavin Newsom.[3]

The Biden-Harris presidency has been a disaster of monumental proportions.  Our borders have been flung wide open, encouraging the cartels to bring China’s Fentanyl and other killer drugs into the country.[4]  Human trafficking has become the norm; and the tragedies have been unspeakable.[5]  There is nothing positive about the Biden-Harris presidency; and the hierarchy of the “progressive” Democrats know this better than anyone.[6]

Organized religion has been a threat to Biden, Pelosi and their ilk, who have masqueraded as devotees.  Even America’s smallest religions have been threatened; for example, as anti-Semitism has risen nationally and globally.  Yet, the sowers of evil will reap a whirlwind—or their just “rewards,” which are coming.  The pendulum swings, and it is moving now.

The “Witch Hunters” Must Be Brought To Justice, Beginning With Evil-Incarnate Merrick Garland

18 11 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

In an article entitled, “‘Never mind’ on Mar-A-Lago; even more black marks for the FBI,” former Governor of Arkansas and presidential candidate Mike Huckabee—and the father of Arkansas’ Governor-elect Sarah Huckabee Sanders—has written:

After the FBI swooped in on Mar-A-Lago, the home of a former President, on August 8, 2022, in a “land, sea and air” early-morning invasion with helicopters and up to 30 armed agents, we Americans sat glued to our TVs listening to reporters recount the events of the day from outside on the street, our jaws on the floor.  We couldn’t believe what had taken place.

The raid had been choreographed like an action movie set in some far-off banana republic.  Nothing like this had happened before—or was likely even contemplated—in our country.  Even President Richard Nixon, who resigned from office in disgrace, never faced anything like this.

If you travel to Panama City (Panama, not Florida) and tour the nearby rainforest, one place you’ll drive fairly close to is the unassuming compound where former Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega was incarcerated after being tried by courts in the U.S. and France.  Upon his return to Panama, he would be kept under close guard for the rest of his life, with the goal of making sure he never, ever tried to come to power again.

It occurs to me that this is what the truly Trump-deranged among us would like to do to President Trump.

But Noriega was a dictator—a real, ruthless dictator.  He suspended constitutional rights, closed newspapers and radio stations, drove political enemies into exile, fixed elections, laundered drug money, had adversaries killed and more.  When troops swarmed into Panama to neutralize the threat to freedom posed by him, it made sense to do that.

But in using force against our own former President, our DOJ was trying to make him appear to be a bad man, a presumed-guilty man, someone who was perhaps secretly plotting to take power and/or harm our nation.  “Wow, what did President Trump DO,” people wondered, “to justify something like THIS?  It must have been really bad!”  And in the days and weeks that followed, there were leaks by investigators about important classified documents, even dangerous nuclear secrets, being squirreled away at Mar-A-Lago (possibly to be sold to Russia!), even a picture of so-called classified documents lying on the floor.

But [these] claims were not substantiated.  The picture was staged by agents.  And at this point, it seems to have been much ado about nothing, or, at most, much ado about a paperwork dispute.  But, timed as it was in the months before the midterm elections, it was bound to have an effect on the political viability of those who supported Trump.

Now that the election is safely over, the real story of the raid is coming out, thanks in part to the WASHINGTON POST.  After reviewing the documents, they report, federal authorities see “no nefarious effort by Trump to leverage, sell or use the government secrets.  Instead, the former President seemed motivated by a more basic desire not to give up what he believed was his property… Trump repeatedly said the materials were his, not the government’s, often in profane terms,” their sources said.

Exactly—a paperwork dispute.

I have an idea for WAPO if they’d really like to earn a Pulitzer for their reporting on Trump.  Take a hard look at the FBI and DOJ in the style of real investigative journalists.  They break the stories, not you—if your sources do give you “bombshells” that hurt your political side, you typically wait till after elections are over to report them in mainstream media.  Otherwise, you just transcribe for the strategic leakers at the DOJ.

Trump tweeted this on Truth Social: “Nuclear weapons issue is a Hoax, just like Russia, Russia, Russia was a Hoax, two impeachments were a Hoax, the Mueller investigation was a Hoax, and much more.  Same sleazy people were involved.  Why wouldn’t the FBI allow the inspection of areas at Mar-A-Lago with our lawyers, or others, present.  Made them wait outside in the heat, wouldn’t let them get even close—said ‘ABSOLUTELY NOT.’  Planting information anyone?  Reminds me of a Christopher Steele Dossier!”

Kyle Becker notes other revelations that are happening now that the election is over.  For example, the FBI is confirmed to have had numerous agents embedded within extremist groups in advance of the January 6 protest.  So they knew there were plans to create unrest—if they didn’t encourage these plans outright—yet, curiously, no extra security was provided for the rally, even though President Trump had offered 20,000 National Guard troops.

When Trump says the “same sleazy people” were involved, perhaps he’s referring in part to the just-retired FBI agent heading the DC field office who supervised the Gretchen Whitmer attempted-kidnapping case, the January 6 investigation and the Mar-A-Lago raid.

On Thursday, when FBI Director Chris Wray testified before a Senate committee, he found himself in the hot seat.  Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley told him it was “indefensible” that back in August he left a statutorily-required hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee to “catch a flight” (nonsense; he was flying on a private government plane) to vacation with his family in the Adirondacks.

Here’s the story at DAILY CALLER, but we noticed that none of the reports even mention this: Wray’s hearing happened to be on Thursday, August 4, just a few days away from the raid he was planning for the morning of August 8.  No wonder he was eager to get out of that chair and off to the Adirondacks!

House Republicans did have their press conference Thursday, with Kentucky Rep. James Comer and Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan announcing their committees were launching an investigation into President Biden’s foreign business ties to son Hunter, as revealed on Hunter’s abandoned laptop—which was hidden by the FBI during Trump’s impeachment and later dismissed as “Russian disinformation”—and also approximately 150 flagged financial transactions.  Citing whistleblowers, they said the President had been “chairman of the board” of the Biden family empire based on selling access to him when he was Vice President.  They claim to have found evidence of money laundering and conspiracy to defraud the United States.

“Was Joe Biden directly involved with Hunter Biden’s business deals and is he compromised?  That’s our investigation,” Comer said, adding that they want to find out why he lied to the American people.  Specifically, he said, “We find evidence that Joe Biden and Hunter Biden were involved in a scheme to try to get China to buy liquified natural gas.  People are in outrage over China buying farmland in the Dakotas.  What about China trying to buy into our American energy industry?”

Here’s another black mark for the FBI: In a hearing with Wray last December, he was asked about the FBI’s use of Pegasus, the hacking tool that extracts information from cellphones.  Wray admitted that they’d bought a license for Pegasus, but not to USE it!  No, no.  This would be only for research and development, to find out how the bad guys would use it.

“But dozens of internal FBI documents and court records tell a different story,” THE NEW YORK TIMES reports.  FBI officials “made a push in 2020-2021 to deploy Pegasus in their own criminal investigations.”  It’s “unclear,” they say, whether the FBI planned to use it to spy on Americans.  But the NYT revealed in January that the FBI tested a similar tool, called Phantom, which is capable of hacking phones with U.S. numbers.

When a flurry of negative stories came out in 2021 about Pegasus, the FBI decided not to use it.  Still, documents show they were interested in using such spyware in the future.

Other than the way they speak approvingly of Wray for getting under Trump’s skin, the NYT has actually reported something here that I would recommend reading.

Legal analyst Andrew Napolitano is not buying what Wray was selling about this, and he says as much in his commentary on the FBI’s interest in Pegasus and Phantom and spying on Americans in violation of the Fourth Amendment.  He argues that the FBI is out of control and must be defunded and disbanded.  This is must-read.

Real investigations

Yesterday, House Republicans announced that there will now be real investigations of real crimes and scandals, like why the Afghanistan withdrawal was so tragically botched, what were the actual origins of the COVID-19 virus, and as Rep. James Comer put it, “the domestic and international business dealings of the Biden family and their associates to determine whether these activities compromise U.S. national security and President Biden’s ability to lead with impartiality.  The Biden family has a pattern of peddling access to the highest levels of government to enrich themselves to the detriment of U.S. interests.”  Soon-to-be House Oversight Committee Chairman Comer said, “We are going to make it very clear that this is now an investigation of President Biden.”  Which leads us to our..

Quote of the Day! From a Fox News TV report last night:

“Democrats are accusing Republicans of focusing too much on investigations and not enough on the big issues like the economy.”

Wow!  For those wondering how long it would take for the Democrats to do a complete 180, this came less than 24 hours after the AP grudgingly admitted that Republicans would take back the House.  The same Democrats who’ve been obsessed for two years with endlessly “investigating” January 6th while ignoring (or actively making worse) the problems afflicting working Americans, like record inflation.  I would add rampant crime, open borders, high gas prices and the threat of World War III, but they didn’t mention those because Democrats still have the power to make those worse.

I’ve written before about how somewhere in Washington, there’s a big, hidden switch.  Whenever power changes from one party to the other, someone throws that switch, and all the standards instantly reverse.  For instance, if Democrats take over from Republicans, homeless people immediately change from a humanitarian crisis caused by government cruelty to invisible people.[2]

The road ahead is clear.  The Republicans—and yes, Donald Trump—must clean up the colossal mess that Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Nancy Pelosi, Merrick Garland, Christopher Wray and their fellow Democrats have left.  And not a minute can be wasted.[3]

Lots Of American Voters Aren’t Wedded To Either Political Party, And May Boycott Both

17 11 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

I began as a Democrat in a devoutly-Republican, Southern California family, because of John F. Kennedy.  Indeed, I was in Los Angeles’ Coliseum when he gave his acceptance speech at the 1960 Democratic Convention, even though I was not old enough to vote.  Years later, I passed up a chance to return to a prestigious law firm in San Francisco because I thought service to my country was the right thing to do.[2]

I spent two years at the Pentagon as an Army officer assigned to the Defense Intelligence Agency, and then pounded the corridors of Capitol Hill, trying to find a job, which I did.  It was heady work, with some of the political giants of the times.[3]  But there was and is a seedy side to American politics, which equaled or surpassed what happened in Hollywood (or Los Angeles) where I grew up.[4]

When I left the U.S. Senate, I concluded that the Democrats were “evil” but smart, while the Republicans were “Neanderthals” and dumb.[5]  Hence, I became an Independent and have been one ever since.  The Kennedy men, I learned, were evil—with essentially no redeeming qualities.  And the Democrats have rigged elections, including JFK’s in 1960.[6]

They have targeted their Republican opponents unmercifully, including Richard Nixon with Watergate, Ronald Reagan with Iran Contra, and Donald Trump—who has been attacked from Day One of his quest for political office.  And the Republicans are too stupid or inept to stop them.  We have Brain Dead Joe Biden in the White House, with Willie Brown’s former ho Kamala Harris waiting in the wings for him to croak, yet the Republicans seem unwilling or impotent to jettison them.[7]

What both political parties don’t appreciate, much less fathom fully, is that Americans don’t need either political party.  Lots of us stopped voting for Democrats years ago; and as we see the “vested interests” in the GOP targeting Trump, it is very easy for us to abstain from voting altogether.  The problem is that by defaulting, the Democrats become the victors, in perpetuity.  Therein lies the rub.  Another factor is that the Democrats might have gotten crushed except for young voters who were swayed by the abortion issue, and tragically have supported Infanticide.[8]

Meanwhile, Brain Dead Joe takes his pathetic “victory lap” globally, conceding that China owns Taiwan, just as he ceded Afghanistan to the Taliban.[9]  The GOP needs to dump Mitch McConnell and Kevin McCarthy as leaders.  They are feckless at best.[10]  And never underestimate Donald Trump, nor discount the possibility that he will return to the presidency.  The always-despicable Democrats, the “vested interests” in the GOP, and their fellow travelers will try to convince you otherwise.[11]

Dump Brain Dead Joe, McCarthy, Pelosi and their ilk, and Republicans like Karl Rove who gave us the Iraq War—in which more than 5,000 Americans died and many more were maimed for life, and staggering amounts of money were wasted for nothing—and never trust any of them.

Have American Voters Indicted The GOP?

10 11 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

“Republicans In Shock” was one of the headlines at the once-conservative and bellwether Drudge website.[2]  Another was “Fox News Freaks,” which aptly describes the reaction by most at the largely-conservative news network’s roundtable of its anchors and invited guests.  This brings to mind the folk tale about Chicken Little, who believes the world is coming to an end, and proclaims: “The sky is falling.”[3]

Political pundit and former Clinton adviser Dick Morris says nonsense.  The Republicans have made enormous progress; and Donald Trump has made all the difference.  Without him, none of this would have been possible.[4]

When I left the U.S. Senate, I concluded that the Democrats were “evil” but smart, while the Republicans were “Neanderthals” and dumb.  This was the resounding message or takeaway from Tuesday’s national elections, and why I have been an Independent for so many years.[5]

Tragically, we live in a Kardashian nation where bimbos can become billionaires; organized religion is despised, and God is honored in the breach; human lives are devalued, with abortions on demand—or Infanticide—being championed; and Brain Dead Joe Biden in the White House, with Kamala Harris waiting in the wings for him to croak.

Our allies don’t understand or respect us, while our enemies—principally Xi Jinping in China, Russia’s butcher Vladimir Putin and North Korea’s Kim Jong-un—are moving globally like chess masters to weaken if not destroy us. In short, the inmates are in charge of the asylum; and the GOP’s predicted “red wave” did not materialize . . . although Donald Trump’s endorsed candidates were very successful.

American politics seems to reside in the status quo; and one wonders whether Donald Trump can breath life into its body and soul before the 2024 presidential elections.  His “MAGA” or “Make America Great Again” followers have to be dispirited.  And the Trump haters are dancing with joy, believing that he may be indicted and fade into the rear-view mirror of history.

Like Mark Twain, the reports of his death and political demise may be an exaggeration and premature.[6]  Like Lazarus, he may rise from the grave.[7]  Those who wish the worst for Trump, and believe he is a crass opportunist, may find themselves on the wrong side of history.  He and Mark Twain may have the last laugh; and may not be consigned to the ash heap of history.

In the interim, the midterm elections are essentially over; and Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and their thoroughly-evil Democrats must be counted as losers.  While in the vernacular of the surfing world, it wasn’t known as “wipeout”—a red wave did engulf them.  By all reckoning, they did lose control of the House of Representatives; and yes, it’s an opportune time to gloat and for “payback,” after everything they have put our great country and all Americans through.[8]

Many of us began as Democrats, and are enraged by how our former party has become so radicalized.  Perhaps George Orwell described it best in his prescient Animal Farm, when he wrote about the takeover by the Pigs, and how they subjugated the other animals.[9]  Clearly, the Pigs today—or the uber-Leftists, “Progressives” and eco-Nazis—must be obliterated, never to rise again.[10]

Every single policy change that they initiated after stealing the 2020 election from Donald Trump must be reversed and eliminated forever.  Their lackeys in the media who covered for them and became co-conspirators, via “Fake News,” must be fired.  Elon Musk threw out the number of 75 percent with respect to Twitter’s staff.  It must be decimated.[11]  At America’s corrupt “Department of Justice” and FBI, the housecleaning must be complete and unprecedented.[12]

This leads to a discussion of 2024, and who will represent each of America’s two major political parties.  California’s Governor Gavin Newsom, who is related to Nancy Pelosi, may lead the Democrats’ list.  But his star is fading, inter alia, because of his wife’s links to Harvey Weinstein.[13]  Donald Trump is expected to run again, perhaps with Florida’s Governor Ron DeSantis as his running mate, which may be formidable and unbeatable.

All of this is occurring against the backdrop of a possible nuclear confrontation, which might destroy the United States.  This too is a direct result of Joe Biden’s mental incapacity, and criminality.[14]  Where is God in the midst of such changes, and what so many perceive as utter chaos and Godlessness?[15]

[10]  Joe Biden must be impeached and removed from the presidency.  Aside from his obvious mental incapacities, he is a criminal and must be treated as such.

See, e.g., https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11368895/President-Biden-claims-FIFTY-FOUR-states-concerns-age-continue-mount.html (“Sure about that, Joe?

Obviously, what to do about Kamala Harris is the next order of business.  She is pathetic, and the laughingstock of the world.

See, e.g.https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2022/10/republicans-investigate-possible-impeachment-joe-biden/671859/  (“The Impeachment of Joe Biden”)

This article is weak, but it discusses many of the relevant issues.  Among those that are implicit is Jim Jordan’s role as a future Speaker, replacing Kevin McCarthy and Nancy Pelosi.

Groups such as J Street, which champion reconciliation between the Palestinians and the Israelis, have become de facto arms of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), or “DNC-lite.”  They preach hatred of Donald Trump, the MAGA (or “Make America Great Again”) movement, and Republicans; and they desperately try to avoid becoming irrelevant and losing their fund-raising capabilities.

Will Donald Trump Be Killed By The Democrats?

15 10 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

Brain Dead Joe Biden, Willie Brown’s former ho Kamala Harris, crazy Nancy Pelosi and their Democrats are enemies of the American people.  Years ago when I left the U.S. Senate, I concluded that the Democrats were “evil” but smart, while the Republicans were “Neanderthals” and dumb.  I have been an Independent ever since.[2]

The Democrats have tried to “kill” Donald Trump politically and legally, since Melania and he came down the escalator at Trump Tower in New York City, and began their quest for the presidency.  They have survived countless accusations, and weathered political storms that would have defeated and devastated most human beings.

Assuming that Trump’s candidates prevail in the upcoming mid-term elections, and he continues to be the odds-on favorite to return to the White House, will his opponents try to kill him?  John F. Kennedy was struck down in Dallas; and some of us will never forget the day when it happened.  Will Donald Trump be killed too?  After all, America’s disgraced and lawless FBI entered Trump’s residence at Mar-a-Lago, and the Secret Service did nothing to stop them.[3]

Clearly Joe Biden Is Brain Dead, And He Is Pushing Us Toward World War III

13 10 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

The latest example of Biden’s mental infirmities involves his deceased son Beau, whom Biden claims perished because of his military service in Iraq, when in fact he died of brain cancer in the United States, six years after he was deployed in Iraq.[2]  Evidence of Joe Biden’s cognitive decline has been present since he ran for the presidency in 2020.  It cannot be hidden or covered up.[3]

Our enemies know it, and they have been exploiting it since Biden’s disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan.  Russia’s Vladimir Putin has escalated his butchery in Ukraine, and threatened nuclear war, at a time when his own health has been declining.[4]  Similarly, China’s Xi Jinping has ratcheted up his threats against Taiwan; and North Korea’s Kim Jong-un has been flexing his country’s military muscles.[5]

We may be closer to a nuclear holocaust than at anytime during my life, since my elementary school classmates and I went through mock attack drills, simulating a Soviet nuclear attack.  We were instructed to hide under our desks and cover our heads, and shield ourselves from falling debris, in the Brentwood suburb of Los Angeles where searchlights had scanned the skies for Japanese aircraft after Pearl Harbor was attacked, a few years earlier.  Indeed, a Japanese submarine had shelled the oil fields at Ellwood, north of Santa Barbara.[6]

I was present on Joe Biden’s first day as a newly-elected U.S. Senator one month after his wife and daughter were killed in a tragic auto accident.  He has worked in government all of his life, yet like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi he has amassed great wealth. This is the way Washington works, and the Democrats are “pros” at it.

However, it is entirely a different dimension for “cognitively impaired” Biden to be pushing us toward World War III, or Armageddon, at a time when any one of our enemies might launch a nation-ending EMP Attack, for which we are not prepared.[7].  After November’s elections, Biden may be jettisoned by members of his own party, so they don’t lose the presidency in 2024.  However, this would mean that Kamala Harris would assume the presidency, who has been waiting patiently in the wings for Biden to croak.[8]

What isn’t mentioned by the Democrats, like the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop, is that Hunter left his wife and began an affair with Beau’s widow, and then dumped her for a stripper whom he impregnated.  When he denied his paternity, the woman proved it with DNA testing.  And this is merely the tip of the iceberg of the Biden family crime syndicate’s depravity and criminal conduct.

Would she step aside so that California’s Gavin Newsom could assume the presidency, if she was offered a prestigious office (e.g., Attorney General) in a Newsom Administration?  Is this why his wife is testifying about Harvey Weinstein’s “rape” of her, to clear the decks for Newson’s assumption of the presidency—or at least his run for our nation’s highest office in 2024?

Thousands Of Prisoners Are Set To Be Released From Illinois Jails

7 10 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

This is the title of an article whose complete and updated title reads as follows: “Outcry as thousands of prisoners are set to be RELEASED from jail when Illinois becomes first state to introduce no cash bail in January: State attorneys desperately sue Gov Pritzker amid fears already spiraling crime will soar.”[2]

I brought the article to the attention of someone whom I know that lives in the Chicago area, and whom I have trusted all of my life.  This person’s response is as follows:

Tell me about it!  [My wife] and I attended an information session on this topic last week presented by our IL State Representative and our DuPage County Sheriff.  It was standing room only and although most of the attendees were probably Republican, I speculated that a significant portion may have voted Democratic in the last election.  I suspect not many in that room will vote Democratic in the state contests in November.  They were shocked and outraged.  Unfortunately, this topic has not received wide spread coverage locally.  Republican efforts to publicize this more broadly would be the Democrat’s worst nightmare.  Local Democrat political advertising has been directed exclusively to abortion in spite of the fact that it’s legal in Illinois and won’t be changing anytime soon.  Getting this issue squarely in front of the voters (especially suburban voters) has the potential to be a game changer in Illinois politics.  We’ll see.

Broad swaths of the American electorate are waking up to what an unmitigated disaster Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Nancy Pelosi and their Democrats have been.  And yes, lots of us began as Democrats but will never vote for them again in the future.[3]

Even worse is the prospect that one of our enemies might launch a single nation-ending EMP Attack, for which we are not prepared.[4]
