Mark, Received my signed copy of The Green Fraud! Thanks! As for today's Q&A, I'm focused on Moving On! As painful as these last several months have been, and now the daily headlines coming from DC, there's no alternative than to focus on the 2022 House Elections. The Democrats are a team that has the Republicans totally on the run and unless the GOP goes on Offense in a Big Way, they will be toast next year. Trump was a result of their lack of fight against the destruction of Obama. I'm not convinced they have learned anything from the last 4 years! Your thoughts, please?

The dream that Trump could be re-elected in 2024 is just sad. The Democrats would not tolerate it, and the sky is blue.
If some shred of American democracy is to be preserved the Republicans have to find some way of mollifying the Democrats, who've effectively become Corporatists (just another word for Fascists, according to Mussolini).

The policies of the Dems and the Left are not only misguided, in many cases they are in stark conflict. Take Biden's goal to reduce the U.S. carbon emissions by 50%. At the same time, they are championing mass immigration, both legal and illegal. A Pew research study in 2008 projected U.S. population to grow from 296 million in 2005 to 438 million by 2050, of which 82% of the increase, some 117 million would be due to immigration. We can't have both, drastic cuts in carbon emissions while bringing in millions of immigrants who would assume an American-style carbon footprint. Unless, reducing our standard-of-living and hence our per capita carbon footprints is the plan. If so, what positive benefit to the American people will derive from mass immigration? Likely, none.

How do you think this all plays out? The radical changes the Left has managed to pull off in the last 15 months is chilling. We now have an administration that clearly despises the American people, and even shows a disdain for their sycophants in the media who got them fraudulently elected. They are weak and in competent and everybody can see that. They walk around with 2/3 of their face covered with big black masks which makes it easier for them to lie. It is so dystopian, this reality we are in- and I think people outside of just those of us in this club- I think even regular every day, don't-pay-attention-to-politics-much Joe Biden voters are starting to get a little worried about how things are playing out. I think there are a lot of Democrats out there who are perplexed at why they're uneasy feeling got worse since Trump left office. I think there are people that are beginning to pine for the days when an off-color tweet was the worst thing they had to worry about. I think there's a general sense of malaise and unease that is setting in across America as we begin to see how American looks under this new regime.

I'm personally sick and tired of the narrative that knife fights, drive by shootings, thievery, and gangs are accepted norms amongst the black community and we should accept them as well. This is the type of stuff you'd expect in a third world nation but now it's becoming taught as being totally normal behavior and for us to be welcoming, we have to be subjected to it and say nothing. Not one of these politicians or woke celebrities would ever live in such an environment to the point they view they have to live in gated communities. We shouldn't have to live in a closed environment to be safe from our own neighbors but even more so, how can reparations ever hope to bring some level of closure when they're being taught that the street life and justice they preach will forever continue to make their lives miserable? Your thoughts Mark.

Over the last few decades we have witnessed the change from riding our bicycles around without helmets to forfeiting our civil liberties for a flu like disease. As we know, politics is downstream of culture, and this astonishing cultural change happened not just in Europe but also in America.

I found in my mailbox the other day a call to arms from our establishment betters in conservative, inc., the casus belli being that of Joe Biden's "vindictive" capital gains tax hikes. Surely, as we wall up the hill with our right wing dead and once more unto the breach with our last great measure, the great engine of American business will roar again, right?
Am I alone in feeling remarkably unmotivated to participate in that debate? Are we supposed to have already forgotten that the so-called investor class voted (and donated) overwhelmingly to Biden and the Democratic Party? Was it not more than a month Fortune 500 companies and CEO's among other elites signed an open letter opposing Georgia's voter integrity laws and similar laws across the country?
The corporate elite fund every leftist bad idea from mandating critical racial theory in education (and employment) to administering puberty blockers to children who identify as transgender. Why should we continue to defend their tax breaks?

Hello Mark - Love the Club! Two items:
Just in the past few weeks, two teenage girls killed an Uber Eats driver during an attempted carjacking in DC. At 2:30am in Chicago, a police officer shot and killed a teenage boy who had a gun. In Columbus, Ohio, a police officer shot and killed a teenage girl who was attempting to stab another teenage girl. In Roanoke, Virginia, a teenage boy was shot dead by a group of two or three other teenagers. There have been various narratives about race and violence in the media, but at what point do we realize that we have a parenting problem, exacerbated by the cradle-to-grave welfare state?
I'm one of those who does not think America is "systemically racist," but after seeing the response to Tim Scott's address last night, I may need to reconsider my opinion. It's an odd phenomenon how we on the right are supposed to be the bigots, but you get one black guy with a heterodox opinion and suddenly Uncle Tom and Uncle Tim are trending on Twitter. You know that old line about how Eskimos have a thousand words for "snow?" Not sure if that's true or not, but I do know that the left likes to celebrate diversity when it comes to the bile spit out at a black Republican Senator...

It seems that we have fallen into a banana republic level of justice, where "justice" depends totally on the agenda of those in power. You have talked about this before, but just when I thought that we couldn't sink any lower, we have.
Yesterday the FBI raided Rudy Giuliani's home. The medical examiner who testified in favor of Derek Chauvin is being "investigated." Nick Fuentes has been put onto a no-fly list. Anyone who was at the capital seems to have been arrested and held in solitary confinement. The government is fighting the release of video data from the capital that could help exonerate those being held. The Feds were reportedly ready to arrest Derek Chauvin on Federal crimes should he have been found innocent by the jury. The abuses goes on and on.
Meanwhile, BLM and Antifa rioters are released, often even without bail. Illegal immigrants are not deported, but released into the country. Hunter Biden . . . need I say more.
As even more contrast, any police officer who shots a member of a certified victim group is immediately doxed. We still don't know the identity of the officer who shot Ashli Babbit.
This is all very similar to case brought against you by Michael Mann. In any legitimate system, that case would have been thrown out of court, but instead it was allowed to proceed because the process is the punishment, and you were not of the correct tribe to avoid the punishment.
A country without equal justice for all cannot hold together for very long, but that is where we seem to be.
What, if anything, can be done?

I tuned into the State of the Union address late because I was driving and I didn't want to either be lulled to sleep or fly into a rage at something said in the speech. My sister convinced me to tune in, so I found the speech on the radio. Shout out to AM Radio for airing it. I am glad to see AM radio still exists. I was most impressed by a few grade-school level lines: (1) "I am absolutely confident in my confidence..." and "Cuz this is the United States of America." What persuasive writing, Mr. Biden! And then I caught a bit about taking away all the guns and something about "the government is 'We the People," before I got distracted by an 18-wheeler moving in too close for comfort. "Thank you for you patience" at the the conclusion gave me the impression the speech was full of errors and misspeaking, but I can't be bothered to find out for certain by looking at a transcript or listening to the speech in full, although I am absolutely confident in my confidence that is the case.

Curious that he spoke these words the day after Richard Barnett, charged with putting his feet on Nancy Pelosi's desk, was ordered by an Obama judge to be released after nearly four months of solitary confinement. He did more time than Robert E. Lee, and in harsher conditions than Jefferson Davis. Curious, also, that in this latter-day Civil War, only a single "rebel" died in combat.
