  1. I’m fine.

    I’m pissed off, annoyed, and ashamed of my country right now.

    So rather than hurt someone’s feelings by being honest about it, I’ve decided to not say anything for a bit.

    Let the corrupt Dems run wild.

    They’ve already brought back the Green Scam.

    For anyone else, this is called insider trading. You’d go to jail for it. But not out corrupt “leaders”…..

    “President Joe Biden said today that the U.S. federal government would replace its fleet of vehicles with electric vehicles. “The federal government also owns an enormous fleet of vehicles, which we’re going to replace with clean electric vehicles made right here in America, by American workers.” He said the move will create a million jobs in the auto and clean energy sectors.

    The federal government maintains a fleet of 645,000 vehicles, according to the General Service Administration’s 2019 Federal Fleet Report released in 2020. Those include vehicles assigned to various civilian (like the Postal Service) and military agencies. Of those, the majority — about 412,500 — are trucks, with 272,000 light trucks, 102,000 medium-duty and 39,000 heavy trucks. The fleet also includes about 224,000 passenger vehicles and 8,000 other vehicles like buses and ambulances.”

  2. My Bible memory verse:
    1 Peter 2:19 NKJ

    “For this is commendable if because of conscience toward God one endures grief, suffering wrongly.”

    That is where I am at considering the woeful state of our nation. We have been victimized and must wait on God to do justice in His timing and in His way. Revenge is His. He knows the guilty and He knows the upright. It is a time of suffering and grief for so many. But it is not our eternal state. We can rejoice in the big picture.

  3. Whew, welcome back, fearless leader. And I say that with great understanding of your second and third lines.

    Husband made the trip to Moscow yesterday. He talked with my dad and stepmom and their assistant. Assistant says my dad has turned liberal. I knew that. He is rejoicing that Biden won. But that is his hatred for Trump more than Biden. We are totally baffled as he has always been an economic conservative.

  4. Hmm…perhaps even he couldn’t stomach the lawlessness of it all! 🙃
    “Vermont Sen. Patrick Leahy was taken to a hospital Tuesday evening after not feeling well and later sent home after tests, a spokesman said, hours after the 80-year-old Democrat began presiding over the impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump,” the Associated Press’s Alan Fram reports. “Leahy, who’d been in his Capitol office, was taken to George Washington University Hospital ‘out of an abundance of caution’ after being examined by Congress’ attending physician, Leahy spokesman David Carle said.
    And the 5 traitorous “Republicans”…hope voters remember their names: Susan Collins, Maine, Lisa Murkowski, Alaska, Ben Sasse, Neb., and Pat Toomey, Pa., and Mitt Romney, Utah.

  5. Good on ya, Mike Pompeo…

    https://www.theepochtimes.com/pompeo-calls-on-biden-to-acknowledge-ccps-role-in-pandemic-after-memo-release_3673485.html?utm_source=news&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=breaking-2021-01-27-1

    “Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Tuesday called on the Biden administration to acknowledge the role of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) in the COVID-19 pandemic, hours after the White House released a memorandum condemning the use of references “by the geographic location of its origin.”

    “I’ve called it the ‘Wuhan virus’ almost ever since its inception,” Pompeo said during an appearance on “Fox News Primetime,” emphasizing the importance of recognizing where the virus first emerged. It is common to name a virus after its place of origin.

    “It began in Wuhan. It is, in fact, a virus that came from that place. We know that the Chinese Communist Party covered that up. We know that they disappeared doctors and journalists who wanted to write about it and were told they couldn’t,” Pompeo said.

    “These are important things,” he added. “The American people need to know them because they matter. They matter for our health, for our safety, for economic prosperity and for our security, and I hope and I’m counting on this next administration to do what the American people demand of them and continue to confront the Chinese Communist Party.””

  6. NancyJill, when Clinton was impeached, did you hope that the Democrats were “loyal” to the Democrats or that they considered the information as impartially as human beings can?

    From everything I know of him, Ben Sasse is an honorable man. I would like to see him run for president someday. Disagreeing with someone about whether or not the president was wise in a given issue doesn’t make that person a traitor. I’m not a fan of Mitt Romney or Susan Collins and don’t know enough about the other two to have any opinions one way or another. But I’m not at all a fan of the kind of party-driven politics that says, “If he’s your guy, he’s not guilty. If he’s a member of the other party, then he’s guilty.” There should be some Republicans who believe this to be an impeachable offense (and who have courage enough to vote accordingly) and some Democrats who do not (and have courage enough to vote accordingly). Finding guilt or innocence along party lines is actually a very, very bad thing for our form of government.

  7. Apples and oranges Cheryl. Lying and obstruction Clinton as opposed to what with Trump? So yes…if Clinton was a Republican and Republicans voted to impeach him in that instance..yes..I’m good with that. Trump has been hated by the left since day one…they have been out for blood at any cost…big o’l difference there….

  9. As I read 1 Peter 5 this morning I prayed that God would raise up men and women who would be bold to speak the truth and to act. Both in congress and in state legislatures.

  10. What this vote shows is that there are nowhere near the 2/3 of the Senate votes required to impeach if 45 of the 100 just voted to toss it.

    The traitors are also listed below.

  12. If he can do all that in just one week imagine what he can do in two!! Conquer the world?! 😡
    I tried to “Google” the remarks John Kerry made today in reference to out of a job oil workers. Nothing came up…nothing…funny how that works. Then I used DuckDuckGo…came right up…imagine that!?!
    So he’s telling those out of work they can make solar panels…and make “better choices”…because the all caring new Pres wants to “give them” better choices…
    My nephew will be one of the workers affected….he’s a great kid…wife and babe…works hard. He had no inclination to go to the university after high school. He rode the rodeo circuit for a while…worked on a hog farm, landscaping, utility cable installer…now he found a job he has loved and at which he excelled. Through all of this I am asking our Lord to lead him the way to salvation and resting in His plan for his life…it’s just hard to see him so disappointed right now…

  13. Elon Musk is a master of gov’t subsidies — the man should be on the gov’t payroll, he gets so much money from them. Thus, its no surprise Pelosi has Tesla stock — I wouldn’t be surprised Tesla stock options is a bipartisam activity. Corruption is a bipartisan issue — Trumps spent millions of taxpayer money on his golf course, McConnell did not become a millionaire on a congressional salary; the millionaire class is overly represented in the Capitol in both parties.

    In terms of economics Biden has a fairly conservative record; ie neo-con economics not much different than Clinton, Bush and Obama.. Trump’s protectionismm, lack of an economic ideology, and defecit did not enamour him with economic conservatives; add to the his lack of morals, and I can see how some on the right would be more happy with Biden.

    When you call someone a traitior who doesn’t march to the beat of a party; perhaps you’re valuing party more than country. The five Republicans are fairly safe in their seats. If Collins was going to lose it would have been last year. The rest have personal staying power.

    Its interesting how quick people flip emotions and perceptions once power has changed. Leftist blogs were full of doom and gloom three months ago and now its the right wing blogs. Truth be told, the economy hasn’t changed, the world hasn’t changed much and Biden’s EOs although appealing to the woke aren’t a drastic change to socio-economic structures. However, the world is calmer without Trump’s tweets.

    Moving subsidies from one industry to another is just a matter of the government picking new winners — in both cases it shouldn’t be done. Unless necessary to the health and safety of the community (ie hospitals, roads, etc) gov’t shouldn’t pick winners — pipelines vs solar panels; let the market decide.

    And finally, its no surprise the FBI has informants in the Proud Boys, and its no surprise that these informants encouraged illegal activity. Its the modus operadi of police and intellegience agencies everywhere — the FBI did the same to a group of Muslim youth near Buffalo, to animal right groups, antifa, etc. Welcome to the party, right wing, you’re a bit late thought. Elsewhere, the Mossad pracitcally built Hamas and the MI5 had so deeply infiltrated the IRA, they practically ran a few bombing campaigns.

  14. Just to clarify the reason they are “traitors” is exactly because they are betraying the country by siding with the socialist Democrats and acting illegally to impeach President Trump. It in fact has EVERYTHING to do with COUNTRY! Traitorous…..betrayal of country, party, and the constitution of this once United States….You assume too much to assert those who stand for freedoms of our nation and our Constitution value party over country….asinine to make such an assertion….

  15. My reply was to the assertions made by hw “ When you call someone a traitior who doesn’t march to the beat of a party; perhaps you’re valuing party more than country.”
    There are a great many Americans who do not want to see this nation become a socialist country. It is not about party. It is about what this country was founded upon…our Constitution is good and right for ALL citizens. We are a nation of laws and when I and others witness those laws being trampled upon and when those standing up for what is right and good are being lied about, maligned, bullied and propaganda is believed…well it just gets to be a bit much. So those passionate about living in a free country are looked at as though they are just not quite as intelligent as their “betters”…or they are chastised for not being very devout or trusting in the Lord…I’ve just about had my fill….
