Does your U.S. representative represent you?

In a democratic republic, which is the type of government the U.S. has, our elected state senators and district representatives are supposed to represent the citizens in their state and districts.

Rather than the entire country voting on every issue and law, we elect these representatives to do so on our behalf.

The only problem is, we have many elected officials in government who commonly disregard the people they represent, the people they work for, and vote for things because they feel they know better, they want to draw, what they deem to be, favorable political attention to themselves, or because of “pressure” from their respective political parties.  

I’ve selected four representatives to use as examples.

Donald Trump got 68.62% of the vote in West Virginia, yet, their senator, Joe Manchin votes with the democrats on every issue, including impeachment.  

Donald Trump got 58.13% of the vote in Utah, yet, their senator, Mitt Romney, voted to impeach President Trump, and sides with the democrats quite often.  

Donald Trump got 56.92% of the vote in Montana, yet, their senator, Jon Tester votes with the democrats on every issue, including impeachment. 

Donald Trump got 69.94% of the vote in Wyoming, yet, one of their representatives, Liz Cheney, voted to impeach President Trump, and was very outspoken on the issue.  

Again, these are just the four examples I’ve chosen to use here, but there are more.

Then we have senate “majority” leader, Chuck Schumer, who really doesn’t represent a majority at all, and Speaker Nancy Pelosi, whose democrat party holds the slimmest of majorities in the Congress, pushing radical, totalitarian, legislation, while supposedly representing most Americans, which they don’t.

And we can throw Illegitimate Joe Biden in there, as well, with his signing of radical executive orders, while purporting to desire unity among the American people.

He may want unity, but only on his terms, and only unity with people who will blindly follow his anti-American agenda.

Better said, the anti-American agenda that Illegitimate Joe has been told to follow.

Remember, Joe…, Kamala is waiting in the wings to become the Signer in Chief, should you falter or grow a conscience.  

It is now very apparent that Joe Biden and his administration was only a “trojan horse” for ultra-left-wing policies and ideology.

Hopefully America can survive until the 2022 elections, and then until the elections of 2024.

Here a pile, there a pile, everywhere a poo pile!

In a retrospect to my previously published blog about the human poop problem in the wonderful “city by the bay,” San Francisco, California, which is in Nancy Pelosi’s district, by the way.

According to Greg Norman for Fox News, “San Francisco’s mayor has created a new program called ‘Poop Patrol’ to clean up the human waste [from the ever-growing homeless population] from the infested sidewalks.”

Sounds lovely.

This program is driven by a smartphone “App” that allows concerned citizens to report offending piles of excrement to the proper authorities!

Only in a liberal city gone mad!

“The details of the complaints that the San Francisco Department of Public Works has received are unclear, but data shows the number of sightings has increased dramatically since 2011.  That year, 5,547 human feces incidents were reported. The number rose to 28,084 in 2018.”

Holy sh*t, Batman!  Now, that’s a lot of crap!  And that’s only the crap that was reported!  There’s bound to be twice that much crap lying around in reality!

This is the socialist utopia that democrats want to help spread to a city or town near you!

Stay thirsty my friends…, but don’t drink the liberal Kool-Aide…, or step without looking first…, at least in San Francisco!

President Trump was literally correct when he referred to these democrat strongholds as sh*tholes!

Now please, sing along with me to the tune of “I left my heart in San Francisco.”

I left a steaming pile, in San Francisco

Right there on the street, it calls to me

To be where little cable cars climb halfway to the stars

The morning fog may chill the air, I don’t care

My turd waits there, in San Francisco

Next to the blue and windy sea

When I come home to you, oh-oh San Francisco

Your endless piles of poo will welcome me

Here’s another sung to “Old MacDonald Had a Farm.”

Nancy Pelosi reps a town E-I-E-I-O!

And in that town are a lot of dems, E-I-E-I-O!

With a democrat here, and a democrat there

Here a dem there a dem, everywhere a dumb dem!

Nancy Pelosi reps a town E-I-E-I-O!

Nancy Pelosi reps a town E-I-E-I-O!

And in this town there’s a lot of poop, E-I-E-I-O!

With a poo-poo here, and a poo-poo there

Here a poo, there a poo, everywhere a poo-poo!

Nancy Pelosi reps a town E-I-E-I-O!

Beto O’Rourke said what?!!!

According to David Rutz of Fox News, “Beto O’Rourke says U.S. could become like Nazi Germany in 10 years, despite Biden’s win.”

Despite Biden’s win (which wasn’t really a win, by the way)?!!!

“Could become like Nazi Germany in 10 years?”

How about right now?!!!

Which party is currently supporting censorship and the silencing of its critics?

The democrats.

Which party is currently calling for the abolishment of the 2nd Amendment, and the removal of the peoples’ right to bear arms?

The democrats.

Whose party currently controls most of the media, while manipulating the propaganda which is disseminated to the public?

The democrats.

Which party is it which currently surrounded our capitol with barbed wire fence and is occupying the capitol with thousands of troops?

The democrats…, and establishment, RINO, republicans.

And that’s right now!!!

So, do you think you should maybe rethink the whole “Nazi” thing, Beto, or are you really aware of the truth and this is just an old Nazi propaganda maneuver?

I’m going with the Nazi propaganda maneuver.  

“O’Rourke compared Trump administration to the Third Reich during failed presidential run.”

Oh, really?

You “Beto” be kidding us, Beto!

“Democratic politician [Robert Francis] Beto [‘Beto’ is a common shortening of the name ‘Roberto,’ or ‘Robert.’] O’Rourke [Please note that Beto currently does not hold an office.] fretted Thursday on MSNBC that the United States could become Nazi Germany within 10 years, in spite of full Democratic control of the White House and Congress.” In spite of full Democrat control of the White House and Congress?!!!

Again…, how about as a result of?!!!

And, of course, MSNBC’s cast of liberal tools just ate these remarks up and didn’t challenge or question a thing.   

“On [MSDNC’s…, I mean MSNBC’s] ‘Morning Joe,’ O’Rourke likened efforts by former President Donald Trump and some Republican allies to overturn President Joe Biden’s election victory to the failed Beer Hall Putsch coup attempt by Adolf Hitler in 1923.”

Wow…, that’s a stretch, Beto. 

What democrat dweeb propaganda researcher came up with that little historic nugget for you?

So, what is this “Beer Hall Putsch coup” O’Rourke is referring to? 

On November 8–9, 1923, Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party led a coalition group in an attempt to overthrow the German government. This attempted coup d’etat came to be known as the Beer Hall Putsch.

They began at the Bürgerbräu Keller, a beer hall in the Bavarian city of Munich. Hitler and the Nazi Party aimed to seize control of the state government, march on Berlin, and overthrow the German federal government. They sought to establish a new government to oversee the creation of a unified Greater German Reich. In this new government, citizenship would be based on race.

The putsch failed and Bavarian authorities prosecuted nine participants, including Hitler. Despite its failure, the leaders ultimately redefined the putsch as a heroic effort to save the nation.

Can I just remind you, Beto, that President Trump was the leader of the incumbent government at the time, and he could have legally invoked Martial law to address the fraudulent election if he desired to.

Your analogy here is completely fraudulent…, just like you and the rest of your democrat friends.   

‘“The proudest democracy on the face of the planet will become a memory if we do not fight for it right now,’ O’Rourke said.”

That’s the first bit of truth that’s dribbled out of your mouth, Beto, albeit you’re upside down regarding who has to fight, and who has to fight who!

It seems that O’Rourke has conveniently forgotten about the coup attempt, perpetrated on President Trump, by the democrats in Obama’s administration, including Obama and Biden themselves, along with elements of the FBI and the DOJ.  

But, then “the coup” was overlooked by the leftwing propaganda media, and instead the phony Russian collusion hoax was pushed on the people for well over two years!!!

We also saw the Mueller investigation…, a modern day version of the Nazi Gestapo, come up empty against President Trump…, but again, this was overlooked, and the Russian collusion narrative was allowed to continue regardless. 

‘“So, we should take no comfort in the fact that Joe Biden was successfully sworn in, no comfort in the fact that Congress seems to be operating as normal. This thing is on a roll right now.”

Believe me, Beto, millions of us are taking NO comfort that Illegitimate Joe was sworn in, or that the democrats control Congress.

No comfort at all.

“And if you look at the Beer Hall Putsch in Germany, 1923, it was 10 years later Hitler is chancellor. We are operating under the big lie right now in America. We’ve got to stop it. That’s up to all of us in this great democracy.’”

It is true that “We are operating under the big lie right now in America,” Beto.

THE BIG DEMOCRAT LIE!!!

And that, YES, “WE’VE GOT TO STOP IT!!!”  

“O’Rourke served three terms in the House of Representative before launching a failed bid to oust Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in 2018. He used the liberal fame from his narrow defeat as a springboard to run for president, but he never gained traction and dropped out of the Democratic primary battle in October 2019.”

So, Beto gained liberal fame, and political momentum, by losing to Ted Cruz?

Interesting.

“He pushed Biden to consider Texas a swing state in 2020, but Trump defeated Biden by nearly six points there and improved on his showing with Hispanic voters from 2016.”

So, I guess, many Hispanic voters in Texas didn’t fall for the democrats’ playing the “race card…,” again, while The President played “the Trump card!”  

“O’Rourke often compared the Trump administration to the Third Reich during his failed presidential campaign.”

“O’Rourke slammed Cruz for joining in the Republican challenge of the Electoral College certification in January, which preceded the deadly Capitol riot by a mob of Trump supporters on Jan. 6.”

Hey, Beto…, do you realize that challenging the Electoral College certification is something completely within the republicans’ rights, and something the democrats have done after the elections of 2000, 2004, and 2016?   

“Cruz also echoed Trump’s unproven claims of widespread voter fraud in the 2020 election.”

Well, Beto…, the “unproven” part of 2020 election fraud is yet to be determined.  Most courts have refused to even hear the arguments or allow for an auditing of ballots.

‘“When Ted Cruz helps to incite that sedition, seeks to overturn a lawfully, legitimately, democratically decided election, he is just as culpable for the insurrection,’ O’Rourke said.”

Aren’t you glad you have MrEricksonRules here properly point out all of this hypocrisy and devilry?!

“Paging John Durham, paging John Durham.”

Where the hell are you, John Durham?!

Ronn Blitzer of Fox News reports that, “[General] Flynn slams Durham, Senate for slow probes: ‘We’re sick and tired of waiting’”

“Generally” speaking, General Flynn is right!

“[General] Flynn spoke out a day after his criminal case was dismissed.”

“Former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn expressed impatience over the drawn-out investigations of the Russia probe’s origins that are being carried out by John Durham and the Senate Judiciary Committee, criticizing both for not moving more swiftly.”

“In an interview with FOX Business’ ‘Mornings with Maria [Bartiromo],’ Flynn spoke out on the circumstances surrounding his criminal case — which spun out of the FBI’s Russia investigation — a day after Judge Emmet Sullivan dismissed it due to a pardon from President Trump.”

‘“We’re sick and tired of waiting,’ Flynn said about Durham’s probe.”

Yes, we are General.

First, they told us his report would be ready by late spring…, then by early summer…, then by late summer…, and then by early fall.

Then we were informed he didn’t want to release his report so close to the election.

Well, THE ELECTION IS OVER!!!

IT’S BEEN OVER THREE MONTHS NOW!!!

Please…, I’m dying to hear your new release date and you your latest excuse.

“Durham, the U.S. attorney for Connecticut, has been looking into the FBI’s actions in the early stages of their investigation of the Trump campaign for potential ties to Russian interference with the 2016 election.”

As a side note, Connecticut is really just one big suburb of New York City…, so, that’s where Durham is coming from.  It may help put his actions, or lack thereof, in a more understandable perspective. 

“A Department of Justice Inspector General report revealed that the FBI made misrepresentations to a court when seeking a warrant to investigate former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, and documents released pertaining to the FBI’s investigation of Flynn cast doubt on their motives. Handwritten FBI notes indicated that there was an internal question as to whether the bureau interviewed Flynn in order to learn the truth or to get him to lie so authorities could pressure him with prosecution or termination.”

“Flynn was then charged and pleaded guilty to giving false statements regarding his communication with a Russian ambassador.”

This after threatening to destroy his son’s life, as well as his, if he didn’t plead guilty.

What can you say about these slimy, deep state, turds?

“His [Flynn’s] lawyers claimed that notes from former FBI official Peter Strzok showed that then-FBI Director James Comey downplayed Flynn’s calls during the presidential transition with Russia’s ambassador as ‘legit’ during a meeting where then-President Barack Obama and then-Vice President Joe Biden also weighed in.”

“Durham’s investigation of the Russia probe has yielded a guilty plea from former FBI attorney Kevin Clinesmith, who admitted to doctoring an email that was used to support an application to monitor Page, but so far there has been nothing in terms of accountability for anyone higher up in the FBI or DOJ.”

Clinesmith was obviously deemed expendable and got thrown under the bus. I’m sure he was compensated quite nicely to “take one for the team” and to keep his mouth shut. 

Clinesmith has since received the harshest of penalties…, probation.

What a joke.

Is there any question we have a two-tiered “justice” system?

‘“I would give a lot of room, space to Bill Barr,’ Flynn said about the attorney general, claiming that Barr has had to deal with a ‘swampy Department of Justice.’ He was less forgiving of Durham and the Senate Judiciary Committee, which has been conducting their own investigation.”

I wouldn’t be that empathetic to Bill Barr, General Flynn.  He may have been dealing with a “swampy” Department of (in)Justice, but he was the boss over there after all.

‘“If you’re going to do something, do it,’ Flynn said about the Senate committee. The committee has already held multiple hearings on the subject which have featured testimony from figures including former FBI director James Comey and former acting director Andrew McCabe. The hearings have so far failed to determine who knew what about the FBI’s failures, as the former leaders have claimed ignorance or a lack of memory when asked for names.”

That’s odd!

“McCabe accused Comey, McCabe, and former CIA director John Brennan of being ‘arrogant’ and ‘smug,’ and said they lied to the American people about the Russia investigation while the media enabled them.”

“As for his particular case, Flynn said it is clear what the FBI’s motive was.”

‘“We all know that this was an effort to get Flynn to get Trump,’ he said. Flynn accused government agencies of having ‘an anti-American bent,’ while praising President Trump for his accomplishments in the face of adversity.”

‘“Look at what President Trump has been able to do despite the kinds of assault that he’s been under,’ Flynn said.”

Agreed.

“Flynn also addressed President Barack Obama, who advised Trump during the transition period not to hire Flynn. Flynn claimed that Obama feared him because he wanted to take on Washington, D.C.’s ‘bloated’ bureaucracy.”

‘“He still should be afraid of me,’ Flynn said of Obama, although he did not explain why.”

“Flynn concluded by speaking out about November’s presidential election and was confident that when the legal challenges are done, President Trump will prevail.”

‘“If you ask Mike Flynn on a scale of one to 10 who’s going to be the next president, I’ll tell you that it’s a 10 that it’s going to be Donald Trump,’ he said.”

I had hoped you’d be right, General Flynn, but sadly the democrats managed to keep President Trump from getting a second term. It was imperative to them that he not be re-elected, by hook or by crook.  

All of these “investigations” (Spygate, Hillary’s email, the attempted “deep state” coup by the FBI and DOJ, Hunter Biden, election fraud, etc.) will now quietly die in the “swampy” quicksand of the corrupt “deep state,” democrat, beaurocracy…, with the help of their co-conspirators, the fake news, mainstream media.

Yes, my friends, it’s sad state of affairs…, and it doesn’t look to get better anytime soon.

Illegitimate, racist, and cognitively challenged, Joe Biden.

During “President” Biden’s town hall, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Tuesday night, Biden demonstrated, again, his TRUE perception of black and brown people.

And good luck finding an article about his regrettable comments, because it doesn’t exist.

These remarks were apparently deemed to be unimportant, not worth reporting, and something to be ignored by the mainstream media.

Remember, if they don’t report it, it didn’t really happen.

I bet they only wish former President Trump had said something as stupid!

Now that would have been a story!  

I can only comment about these remarks because I heard them. 

Thankfully, Newsweek provided a complete transcript of the town hall meeting, otherwise I would have to rely completely on my memory.

As reported by Newsweek, “President Joe Biden spoke to CNN’s Anderson Cooper at a town hall meeting hosted by CNN in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on Tuesday.”

“Biden discussed a range of topics, from when every American will be able to receive the COVID-19 vaccine and the end of the pandemic, to being ‘tired of talking about Donald Trump’ while answering questions from Cooper and members of the audience.”

It was when Biden was taking questions from the audience that he let his true feelings be known.

“AUDIENCE MEMBER: God bless you. Mr. President, hello. My name is Dr. Dessie Levy. And my question to you is considering COVID 19 and its significant impact on black Americans, especially here in Milwaukee and thus, the exacerbation of our racial disparities in health care, we have seen less than three percent of blacks and less than five percent of Hispanics given the total number of vaccines that have been administered to this point.”

“Is this a priority for the Biden administration? And how will the disparities be addressed? And that’s both locally and nationally.”

“BIDEN: Well, first of all, it is a priority, number one. Number two, there’s two reasons for it being the way it is. Number one, there is some history of blacks being used as guinea pigs in other experiments as I need not tell you, Doctor, over the last 50 to 75 to 100 years in America. So, there is a concern about getting the vaccine whether it’s available or not. But the biggest part of this is access –”

“AUDIENCE MEMBER: Mm-hmm.”

“BIDEN: — physical access. That’s why last week I opened up, I met with the Black Caucus in the United States Congress and agreed that I would — all of the — all of community health centers now, which take care of the toughest of the toughest neighborhoods in terms of illness, they are going to get a million doses, you know, a week, and how we’re going to move forward because they’re in the neighborhood.”

“Secondly, we have opened up — and I’m making sure that there’s doses of vaccine for over 6,700 pharmacies because almost everyone lives within — not always walking distance, but within the distance of being able to go to the pharmacy like when you got your flu shot. That is also now being opened.”

Unless your local pharmacy happened to be burned down during the peaceful protests last year!

“BIDEN: Thirdly, I also am providing for mobile — mobile vans, mobile units to go into neighborhoods that are hard to get to because people are — for example, even though everyone is within, you know, basically five miles of a Walgreen’s, let’s say, the fact is if you’re 70 years old, you don’t have a vehicle and you live in a tough neighborhood, meaning, you’re — it’s a high concentration of COVID, you’re not likely to be able to walk five miles to go get a vaccine.”

By a “tough neighborhood,” you mean a neighborhood where the police are being defunded and forced to operate with one hand tied behind their backs?

“BIDEN: The other thing we found is – I’m sorry to go on, but this is really important to me — the other part — portion is a lot of people don’t know how to register. Not everybody in the community, in the Hispanic and the African-American community, particularly in rural areas that are distant and/or inner-city districts know how to use — know how to get online to determine how to get in line for that COVID vaccination at the Walgreen’s or at the particular store.”

Wait, whaaaat?!

Did you really have to qualify these remarks around the African-American and Hispanic communities? 

So, African-Americans and Hispanics don’t know how to use their phone or a computer and get on the internet?

Is that what you’re saying, Illegitimate Joe?

Because it seems like that’s what you’re saying.

“BIDEN: So, we’re also – I’ve committed to spend a billion dollars on public education to help people figure out how they can get in there.”

So, you’ve committed A BILLION DOLLARS to show “these people,” people of color, how to get on to the internet?

Wow…, it must be harder than I thought!

Hey, Joe, I got it…, maybe you can hire some white people to shown them how it’s done?!

How about those people you kicked off the XL Pipeline?

But only the whiteys, of course.

And where is this intense training going to take place, Joe?

Will you have to build training centers?

And how long will the training be?

You know, the training to have the person press or click on the Google icon?

It may take a while for these African-Americans and Hispanics to catch on, you know.

“BIDEN: So, it’s all about trying to more rationalize in detail so ordinary people like me can understand, I mean that sincerely. I mean, my grandchildren can use that online, you know, make me look like I’m, you know, the seventh century, but all kidding aside. This is a process. And it’s going to take time.”

I am more than willing to put “all kidding aside,” Joe, but this really isn’t funny.  

In fact, it’s quite sad.

YOU are quite sad.

And you don’t have to convince me that you’re operating as if you were from the seventh century either!

Please get Lincoln’s name out of your dirty mouths!

How more disingenuous can you be than to use such a great and honorable man’s name as some sort of moral smoke screen for your corrupt and sexually deviant behavior?

The individuals associated with “The Lincoln Project” should all be facing charges for their disgusting actions or as conspirators to these disgusting actions.   

And who are we specifically talking about here?

That would be Lincoln Project co-founders Steve Schmidt, John Weaver, Rick Wilson, and George Conway.

The mainstream media, of course, has been ignoring, or burying, the story about their friends, while hosting them, dozens of times, on various shows to bad mouth and denegrate President Trump, his family, and his followers.

According to Brian Flood of Fox News, “The Associated Press published a scathing report about the embattled anti-Trump group The Lincoln Project on Thursday, but co-founder Rick Wilson [a purported republican strategist] oddly chalked it up to ‘another hit story from Trump world.’”

“The AP story headlined, ‘How a leading anti-Trump group ignored a crisis in its ranks,’ detailed a variety of issues at Wilson’s Lincoln Project. The group recently claimed it was ‘shocked’ last month when sexual harassment allegations surfaced against co-founder John Weaver, but the AP reported that the Lincoln Project was informed of ‘at least 10 specific allegations’ back in June 2020.”

Let’s be clear…, they were “shocked” that “sexual allegations surfaced,” not that there were “sexual allegations” against co-founder John Weaver.

‘“Despite the early warning, the group took no action against Weaver and pressed forward with its high-profile work,’ the AP reported.”

Early warning?

Early warning by who?

Please note that only lying, scumbag, democrats get any type of “early warning,” and then they’re still too arrogant and stupid to believe their deviant behavior is a problem.

“Weaver, a co-founder of the Lincoln Project, acknowledged last month in a statement to the website Axios that he had sent ‘inappropriate’ messages he ‘viewed as consensual, mutual conversations at the time.’”

Oh, really?

“However, The New York Times later ran a bombshell report about 21 young men who accused Weaver of misconduct, including who said he was 14 years old at the time.”

21 young men.

I guess your view of consensual, and even legal, is a little off, huh, Weaver?

May I suggest a new name for your “project?”

“As a result, the Lincoln Project finally denounced Weaver with a scathing statement and fellow co-founder George Conway was quickly dispatched to MSNBC to declare he ‘didn’t know John very well’ despite being business partners.”

Typical for these professional liars and mud slingers…, only after they have been caught dead to rights, do they throw someone under the bus and feign ignorance and outrage.       

And, Conway [a purported “conservative” lawyer]…, you are such a lying and sanctimonious piece of garbage.

Please spare us all your pathetic CYA routine.

How the hell you are married to Kellyanne Conway, I will never understand. Honestly Kellyanne, you can do so much better and you deserve so much better.

“But the allegations of overlooking online harassment aren’t the only troubling part of the AP’s report.”

There’s more?

‘“The harassment allegations and new revelations about spending practices raise significant questions about the management of one of the highest-profile antagonists of Trump. The revelations threaten the stature of not just the Lincoln Project but the broader coalition of establishment-oriented Republican groups [RINO groups] hoping to pool their resources to excise Trump from the party,’ the AP reported.”

“The Lincoln Project co-founder Rick Wilson oddly chalked a scathing Associated Press report up to ‘another hit story from Trump world.’”

“Trump World” being the world of decency, truth, and pro-America.   

‘“Since its creation, the Lincoln Project has raised $90 million. But only about a third of the money, roughly $27 million, directly paid for advertisements that aired on broadcast and cable, or appeared online, during the 2020 campaign, according to an analysis of campaign finance disclosures and data from the ad tracking firm Kantar/CMAG,’ the report continued. ‘That leaves tens of millions of dollars [$63 million to be exact, but who’s counting?] that went toward expenses like production costs, overhead — and exorbitant consulting fees collected by members of the group.’”

In fact, most of the money went back to themselves by way of the companies they owned.

“The AP reported that it’s ‘difficult to tell how much members of the group were paid’ because of the group’s strategy to “mask how much money they earned.’”

Hmmm…, now why would you want to go and do something like that?

“Co-founder Steve Schmidt told the AP that his anti-Trump group would ‘fully comply with the law’ and would be ‘delighted to open its books for audit immediately after the Trump campaign and all affiliated super PACs do so.’”

Ohhh…, we’re getting a little defensive and arrogant are we now, Schmidt?

And saying you and your pathetic group would now “fully comply with the law” is just another one of your lies in a long line of lies.

“On Thursday morning as the story hit, Schmidt’s colleague, fellow co-founder [Rick] Wilson, took to Twitter with his thoughts on the report.”

‘“Another day, another hit story from Trump world,’ he wrote.”

‘”I know y’all would like to ignore the mounting evidence of Trump ordering a murderous mob to attack the Capitol, but you can’t.’”

Excuse me, but isn’t “y’all” part of the “rube” lexicon?

Just sayin’.

“It’s unclear why Wilson feels that the reputable Associated Press is part of whatever he considers ‘Trump World,’ but critics quickly mocked his response.”

“Wilson has maintained in recent weeks that he had no knowledge of the extent of Weaver’s predatory behavior, which included sexual overtures to a 14-year-old boy.”

Have any of these guys been to Jeffrey Epstein’s “Pedo Island?”

I’m gonna go out on a limb and guess, yes.

It appears that Wilson is choosing the “Comey defense.”  

Oh, and wasn’t it you, Wilson, who was “yucking” it up at the expense of President Trump, Secretary Pompeo, and Trump supporters in general on one of the fake news, democrat propaganda, shows?

Ian Schwartz for the RealClear Politics website reported that, “CNN’s Don Lemon Cracks Up As Rick Wilson, Wajahat Ali Trash Trump Supporters As Ignorant Rubes.”

“On Don Lemon’s CNN show Saturday, Rick Wilson and Wajahat Ali react to Mike Pompeo curing and accusing an NPR host of not knowing where Ukraine is after a testy interview.”

Oh…, just another “testy” interview with a Trump official.

That’s odd.

“Wilson said this is something that appeals to Trump ‘rubes’ and makes them feel like Trump is the smart one and ‘y’all elites are dumb.’ The two then said Trump supporters aren’t familiar with geography, spelling, reading, knowing other countries, and drinking coffee.”

Please note that, “A ‘rube’ is defined as a country bumpkin or an inexperienced, unsophisticated person.”

I know, according these liberal geniuses, I’m just a “rube,” but what does “drinking coffee” have to do with anything?

‘“He’s [Pompeo’s] just trying to demean her [the NPR host], and obviously it’s false. He also knows that deep in his heart that Donald Trump couldn’t find Ukraine on the map if you had the letter ‘U’ and the picture of an actual, physical crane next to it,’ Wilson said.”

‘“He knows that this is an administration defined by ignorance of the world,’ Wilson said as Lemon’s face hit the desk. ‘That’s partly him playing to their base and playing to their audience of the credulous boom rube demo that backs Donald Trump that wants to think that (in Southern accent) Donald Trump is the smart one and y’all elitists are dumb.’”

‘“You elitists with your geography and your maps and your spelling,’ Ali chimed in.”

‘“Your math and your reading,’ Wilson continued.”

‘“Yeah, your reading, your geography, knowing other countries, sipping your latte,’ Ali said.”

‘“All those lines on the map,’ Wilson said.”

‘“Only those elitists know where Ukraine is,’ Ali finished.”

Okay…, we get it…, are you about through now?

These “oh so wise,” arrogant, liberal, talking heads, obviously have a very poor opinion of the intelligence of Trump supporters…, but I’m quite confident in saying that:

Most Trump supporters recognize that intentionally misleading the American people is wrong, Wilson.  

Most Trump supporters recognize that lying is wrong, Wilson.   

Most Trump supporters recognize that cheating is wrong, Wilson.

Most Trump supporters recognize that stealing is wrong, Wilson.  

Most Trump supporters recognize that sexually harassing young men and boys is wrong, Wilson.  

Just sayin’.

This “rube” thinks y’all Lincoln Project boys need an attitude adjustment!

Liberals are the new Nazis! “Sieg Heil,” ABC News!!!

There were Nazis, then neo-Nazis, and now we have “democrat Nazism.”

You heard that term here first!

In the words of Ricky Bobby, from the movie “Talladega Nights:”

“That there is trademarked, not to be used without expressed written permission of Ricky Bobby, Inc.”

In this case, MrEricksonRules, LLC.

According to David Rutz of Fox News, “ABC News calls for ‘cleansing the movement’ of Trump supporters following the Capitol riots.”

“ABC News stealth-edited the piece, and changed it to ‘cleaning up.’”

“An ABC News article calling for the ‘cleansing’ of the movement of President Trump’s supporters was stealth-edited after critics questioned the charged word.”

‘“Even aside from impeachment and 25th Amendment talk, Trump will be an ex-president in 13 days,’ ABC’s Rick Klein and MaryAlice Parks wrote for ‘The Note’ on Thursday. ‘The fact is that getting rid of Trump is the easy part. Cleansing the “movement” he commands, or getting rid of what he represents to so many Americans, is going to be something else.’”

“It now reads, ‘Cleaning up the movement he commands, or getting rid of what he represents to so many Americans, is going to be something else.’”

“Klein also shared the original phrase on Twitter before deleting it.”

“The term ‘cleansing’ drew criticism on the right, which viewed it as a violent term in a week where bipartisan outrage has erupted over the mob mayhem at the U.S. Capitol this week.”

‘“You may not like it, but it’s perfectly within Klein’s right to say everything he said,’ the Media Research Center’s Nick Kangadis wrote. ‘He can celebrate that Trump is leaving office all he wants. But it is the height of hypocrisy for those in the media to condemn others for violent acts that are dwarfed in comparison to the consistent violence of the far-left — one act doesn’t justify the other — and then go out and call for something like a ‘cleansing’ of people and think there’s nothing wrong with a statement like that.’”

Without a doubt, the capitol protest will be used as a vehicle to further attack Trump supporters and patriots in general.

Perhaps Klein and Parks would care to let us in on what their vision of “cleansing” might include?

The “playbooks” for “cleansing” are out there, and scattered throughout human history…, and they’re all ugly and evil.   

“Klein leads the network’s [ABC’s] political coverage and provides analysis across its platforms.”

“ABC,’ of course, stands for American Broadcasting Company. 

I propose a better choice would be DNBC!

I’ll let you figure that out.  

And, finally…, when are many other people going to wake up and start figuring this out as well?

Do African Americans think they’re going to be included in this grand scheme?

Do Hispanic Americans think they’re going to be included in this grand scheme?

Does any other group, other than white liberal elites, think they’re going to be included in this grand scheme?

I hate to break it to you, but you won’t be.

These other groups are just being used as a means to an end, and when their usefulness has reached an end, they’ll need to be “cleansed” or discarded too.

Mark my words.

Can’t we all just get along now?

Now that President Trump is in the process of being cheated out of his re-election?

Nancy Pelosi was re-elected as the Speaker of The House of Representatives, for the 117th Congress, on January 3rd.

During her speech to the new Congress, we heard a masked Pelosi, even though there was no one within ten feet of her, declare that this is now “a time to heal.”

Excuse me…, but I can think of like 74 million Trump voters off the top of my head who would disagree with you, Nancy!

There is no “healing” anymore after the way you and your democrat friends shamefully treated our president…, President Trump, during his four years in office…, and then stole the 2020 election.

No…, there is no “getting along” or “healing anymore.

This has now become a war to save America.

You said that “prayers are needed now.”  

Who or what do you and your ilk pray to, Nancy?

You don’t really expect us to believe that God endorses your Godless beliefs and behavior, do you…, or that you ask Him for help with your depraved agenda? 

I mean, c’mon, really?

You’ve gotta give us some credit!  

Either you are a complete manipulative, hypocritical, phony, or you are just really screwed up.

My vote is you’re a complete manipulative, hypocritical, phony.

You then went on to call for “justice.”

“Economic justice,”

“Health justice,”

“Racial justice,”

And “environmental and climate justice.”

I think you think “justice” means advancing the liberal, socialist, and globalist agenda in these areas.  

The “justice” we really need is:

Justice for unborn babies in the womb,

Election justice,

Uncensored freedom of speech,

Justice in media coverage,

And most ironically, justice from the Department of Justice and the FBI.    

You then finished by saying, “no one in America should be left out or left behind.”

If that statement wasn’t so sad it would be hilarious!

Have you actually stepped foot in your own district in San Francisco, California?

Granted, you’d have to be careful so as to not step in a pile of human excrement, which is a major problem in your idyllic city!

But if you were able to visit your district without getting your shoes dirty, you would see thousands and thousands of homeless people who have been “left out or left behind.”

Doesn’t charity begin at home?

You can’t even take care of your own little district, but you want to lecture the rest of us regarding what we should strive for as a country?

These are just move disingenuous empty words from another corrupt politician.

Oh…, that reminds me…, we also need some political justice!

I won’t be holding my breath waiting for that either, however.

My favorite (AOC) Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez memes!

From the conservative point of view, AOC is the gift that just keeps on giving!

I get the impression that she is very sincere about her beliefs and her support of various issues…, the only problem is her beliefs are misguided in many cases and her understanding of the issues are confused.

All that being said, here’s my collection of my favorite “AOC” memes!

“Meme” is pronounced [MEEM], and rhymes with “seem,” if you’re not already familiar with the term.

A “meme” is a humorous image that is copied and enhanced (often with the addition of a message, joke, or saying) and spread rapidly by Internet users.

So, without any further adieu…, here are the memes!

Enjoy.

I hope you enjoyed my collection of AOC memes!

My, how things have changed.

In the beginning, the states pretty much ruled themselves.  They were like their own separate, little, “countries.” 

But they were connected to each other, physically, economically, and ideologically.   

They recognized the value of banding together for protection internationally and the value of being able to deal with other countries as a single, united, entity.  

So, the states created The Constitution to spell out how this collection of states would function under a single federal government umbrella.

They had no idea how immense and all-encompassing and all-controlling that federal “umbrella” would become.   

Lenore T. Adkins, for the “ShareAmerica” website, writes, ‘“We do need a State Department. We do need a Department of Defense,’ says Karla Jones, director of international relations and federalism at the American Legislative Exchange Council, referring to the federal entities responsible for implementing the country’s foreign and defense policies.”

“The U.S. relies on a system called ‘federalism:’ Powers not granted to the federal government are reserved for the states and the people. It’s an important concept to understand because citizens encounter different levels of government daily, but in several ways.”

It’s also important to recognize that the federal government seems to be expanding its “powers,” and encroaching on states’ rights more and more all the time.

So, what does the federal government do?

Better said, what does the federal government do that we and the states have allowed it to do?

“Only the federal government can regulate interstate and foreign commerce, declare war and set taxing, spending and other national policies.”

But the federal government has accumulated power exponentially over the years.  Power that it was never intended to have.

Let’s take a look at our federal government and how grotesquely “obese” it has become.

Here is a list of the major departments that the federal government is broken into, along with their number of employees, their annual budgets, how many subsidiaries they have and some of the highlights of what they do: 

Department of State

Employees: 69,000

Budget: $52.404 billion

Includes 62 different offices and bureaus, including the Office of Global Intergovernmental Affairs, the Office of Civil Rights, the Office of Global Women’s Issues, and the Bureau of Oceans and International Environmental and Scientific Affairs.

Includes 47 different offices and bureaus, including the Office of the Attorney General, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the United States Marshals Service, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). The department is also responsible for running the federal prison system.

Department of the Interior

Employees: 70,003

Budget: $20.7 billion

Includes 62 different offices and bureaus, including the Office of Emergency Management (OEM), the National Parks Service, the Office of Indian Affairs, and the Bureau of Land Management.  NASA (The National Aeronautics and Space Administration) technically falls under the Department of the Interior, although it is an independent agency of the U.S. Federal Government responsible for the civilian space program, as well as aeronautics and space research.

Department of Agriculture

Employees: 105,778

Budget: $155 billion

Includes 20 different offices and agencies, including the Farm Service Agency, the Food Safety and Inspection Service, and the United States Forest Service. 

Department of Commerce

Employees: 43,880

Budget: $9.67 billion

Includes 16 different bureaus and services, including the International Trade Administration, the Bureau of the Census, the Patent and Trademark Office, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and the National Weather Service.

Department of Labor

Employees: 17,450

Budget: $12.1 billion

Includes 30 different offices and administrations, including the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs, and Job Corps.

Department of Health and Human Services

Employees: 79,540

Budget: $1.286 trillion

Includes 22 different centers, offices and agencies, including the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Department of Housing and Urban Development

Employees: 8,416

Budget: $32.6 billion

Includes 11 different offices, including the Office of Equal Employment Opportunity, the Office of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity, and the Center for Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships (HUD).

Department of Transportation

Employees: 58,622

Budget: $75.1 billion

Includes 11 different offices and administrations, including the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the Federal Highway Administration, the Federal Railroad Administration, and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Department of Energy

Employees: 12,944

Budget: $27.9 billion

Includes 12 different offices, administrations and programs, including the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, the National Nuclear Security Administration, the Cybersecurity, Energy Security and Emergency Response program, and the Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Program.

Department of Education

Employees: 3,912

Budget: $68 billion

Includes 19 different offices, boards and councils, including the President’s Advisory Board on Historically Black Colleges and Universities, the Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services, the National Assessment Governing Board, the Office of Federal Student Aid, and the Office of Elementary and Secondary Education.

Department of Veterans Affairs

Employees: 383,040

Includes 15 different agencies and offices, including the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the U.S. Coast Guard, and the U.S. Secret Service. 

Then we spend over $8 billion dollars to fund and operate Congress and the Senate per year.  This is for 535 members of Congress and staff members of over 13,000.

We also spend over $7 billion to fund the federal Judiciary per year.  The federal judiciary has over 30,000 employees.

Lastly, we have expenses for The White House, The White House staff (377) and for The President and The Vice-President, which run around $100 million annually.

That’s a total of:

372 different agencies, offices, bureaus, programs and administrations…,

Representing 4,185,091 (that’s over 4 million) total employees and elected officials…,

At a total cost of $2.867 trillion (that $8,600 annually for every man, woman and child).  Now think about how many people don’t pay federal income tax.  That $8,600 goes up pretty quick for the rest of us.

Wow.  Those are some staggering numbers!

And that’s just to support our federal government’s operations. 

We’re not even talking about how much we pay to fund our state and local governments as well!

Remember, these are only the federal government’s costs of doing business.

This does not include the taxes collected and then redistributed back to the American people [and people here illegally] monetarily, or in some other form of value, like infrastructure, housing, etc.  

Please note:  In American public finance, discretionary spending is government spending implemented through an appropriations bill. This spending is an optional part of fiscal policy, in contrast to entitlement programs (non-discretionary) for which funding is mandatory and determined by the number of eligible recipients.

Please be aware that there were only three original departments created back in 1789, the State Department, the Treasury Department, and the War Department, which evolved into the Department of Defense.   

All of the other departments were created at much later dates.

The Department of the Interior was created in 1849, followed by the Department of Agriculture in 1862.

Next was the Department of Justice in 1870, followed by the Department of Labor in 1913.  

1913 was also the first year for federal income tax as we know it.  We’ll talk more about taxes later.

In 1937 the Department of commerce was created, followed by the Department of Health and Human Services in 1953.  

After this is when the federal government really started to balloon.

The Department of Housing and Urban Development was created in 1965.

The Department of Transportation was created in 1967.

Department of Energy in 1977.

Department of Education in 1979.

Department of Veteran’s Affairs in 1989.

And the Department of Homeland Security in 2002.    

I mentioned earlier we’d get to talking about taxes…, well, here we are.

Here is the history of federal taxes:

In order to help pay for its war effort in the American Civil War, Congress imposed its first personal income tax in 1861.  It was part of the Revenue Act of 1861 (3% of all incomes over $800, rescinded in 1872). Congress also enacted the Revenue Act of 1862, which levied a 3% tax on incomes above $600, rising to 5% for incomes above $10,000. Rates were raised in 1864. This income tax was then repealed in 1872.

So, at this point, we’re back to no federal income taxes.

Forty-one years later, the 16th Amendment was ratified in 1913, which states:

“The Congress shall have the power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration.”

So, now the taxation gravy train was off and running!

Congress then enacted an income tax in October 1913 as part of the Revenue Act of 1913, levying a 1% tax on net personal incomes above $3,000, with a 6% surtax on incomes above $500,000.

By 1918, the top rate of the income tax was increased to 77% (on income over $1,000,000, equivalent of $16,717,815 in 2018 dollars to finance World War I. The average rate for the rich however, was 15%.

During World War II, Congress introduced payroll withholding and quarterly tax payments.

A comedic representation by Clifford K. Berryman of the debate to introduce a sales tax in the United States in 1933 and end the income tax.

I have personally argued my support of a a national sales tax (or a consumption tax) as opposed to a federal income tax. Please see my prior blogs on this subject.

At first, the income tax was incrementally expanded by Congress, and then inflation automatically raised most persons into tax brackets formerly reserved for the wealthy until income tax brackets were adjusted for inflation. Income tax now applies to almost two-thirds of the population. The lowest-earning workers, especially those with dependents, pay no income taxes as a group and actually get a small subsidy from the federal government because of child credits and the Earned Income Tax Credit.

While the government was originally funded via tariffs upon imported goods, tariffs now represent only a minor portion of federal revenues.

In the 1930s, the New Deal introduced Social Security to rectify the first three problems (retirement, injury-induced disability, or congenital disability). It introduced the FICA tax as the means to pay for Social Security.

In the 1960s, Medicare was introduced to rectify the fourth problem (health care for the elderly). The FICA tax was increased in order to pay for this expense.

The total federal budget for 2020 is $4.79 trillion, but we ALWAYS spend more than what we budget. That’s why our federal deficit is in the neighborhood of $26 trillion right now…, but that’s another blog for another day.

Remember I mentioned there are over 4 million total employees and elected officials employed by the federal government…, and more than half of these politicians and bureaucrats live in Washington DC and the surrounding areas of Maryland and northern Virginia.

These areas see a consistent voter registration rate of 90-95% democrat and only 5% republican.

When you hear the term “deep state,” this is what they’re referring to. 

A bureaucratic workforce that is loyal to the democrat party, regardless of who the American people choose to run the country.

The “deep state” is into self-preservation and expanding itself (bigger government).  That is why they have hitched their wagon to the democrat party, and why you can always expect the democrats to pretend to solve any issue by throwing more government, and more of our money, at it.     

“Here endeth the lesson,” as Sean Connery said, when he played a Gman in “The Untouchables.” 

That’s when being a Gman was still an honorable profession!

RIP Sean Connery.
