Yeh, sure Pelosi! You're peeing on my leg, trying to convince me it's raining too. Let me tell you Pelosi, Biden is one who has been consistently wrong on all foreign affairs for 40 years. He is the one who said, "he's the only one who has stood toe-to-toe with Putin". We have seen once again, how that worked out. See how "brilliant" I am in pointing these item to you, eh Pelosi?

Pelosi's idiotic rationale about why Biden's weakness is actually strength has been repeated by local yokels in Facebook and other social media outlets. These brain dead lemmings argue that the reason Putin didn't invade Ukraine while Trump was president was because Trump was busy helping Putin get everything he wanted, because Trump was a Russian "asset." When there exists that level of ignorance and stupidity in so large a segment of our population, I fear for the future of America. There are DEFINITELY two Americas and the other side is insane.

Pelosi is an evil, sick, demented nutcase. One of the most important things that the U.S. can do is set term limits for those in elected office. Some spend the better parts of their entire adult life in office and get wealthy doing so, which is impossible to do just on their Govt salaries. AOC is well on her way after being in office for only a relatively short time. It is disgraceful.

The United States is suffering from a border crisis, historic inflation, high gas prices, and a labor shortage, among other things, and Russia is invading Ukraine and is threatening a nuclear World War III… Yet, according to Kamala Harris, it’s time to start worrying about preferred pronouns. This is not a joke. Well… it is, actually… but, Kamala Harris really does think that now is the time to start pushing LGBTQ issues. On Thursday, Harris tweeted, “Let’s send the Equality Act to President Biden’s desk. We must increase protections for LGBTQ+ Americans across the country. The onslaught of state bills targeting transgender Americans and their families is wrong.”

The Left’s war on the National Rifle Association has been ongoing for months. New York Attorney General Letitia James has vowed to dissolve the organization through a series of legal actions aimed at exposing the allegations of fraud and corruption among the upper crust of the group. The NRA is one of the nation’s oldest civil rights organizations, though how they’ve spent their donors’ money, among other things, has drawn immense scrutiny. Some items purchased with these funds were not earmarked properly. A wedding does not enhance or promote Second Amendment rights.

Not surprisingly, President Biden’s SOTU speech was a pack of lies from start to finish. He takes no responsibility for baiting Putin into attacking Ukraine by threatening to welcome them into NATO. He never meant it of course. It was all a ploy, a disaster of his own making by stopping our own Keystone pipeline and all oil drilling on federal land the day he took office and ending the sanctions President Trump had put on Nord Stream 2, the Russian pipeline to Germany. Biden’s own incompetence and capitulation to the insane climate alarmists pulling his strings forced Germany into the economic arms of fuel-rich Russia.

And—oh, my goodness!—did I find it in a video someone grabbed of a local Pittsburgh news station’s report about a local crime. (Hat tip: Twitchy.) What you must understand is that the news report ran a few hours before the state of the union address.

When I think of former Attorney General William Barr, I think of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

Bush (or George H.W. Bush) only to find himself working for a vigorous, aggressive Donald J. Trump. Both those aspects of his personality apparently come through loud and clear in a new 600-page book (and doorstop) in which he narrates his stints as U.S. Attorney General under both George Bush, Sr., and Donald Trump.

In spirit, I agree with him. In spirit, Biden actually imposed sanctions that matter, that hurt. In reality, he didn’t do a damn thing.

Pence, in a speech Friday evening to the party's top donors in New Orleans, took on those in his party who have failed to forcefully condemn Russian President Vladimir Putin for his unprovoked invasion of Ukraine.

Washington—At the Internal Revenue Service's sprawling Kansas City, Missouri, processing center, teams of clerks earning $15 per hour work through the night, trying to help the agency clear a backlog of more than 20 million tax returns that are a year overdue. The conditions are subpar: Scanners sputter, forcing workers to enter data by hand, staplers are scarce, and piles of tax documents overflow from carts.

If you have been monitoring the coverage of the conflict in Ukraine, it is amply clear that a narrative is being pushed.

According to The Hill: The Clinton Foundation is reconvening its Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) to address “steep” challenges it after previously ended in 2016, former President Clinton said in a statement on Friday.
