WHY I’M VOTING FOR TRUMP

Wednesday, April 10th, 2024

 

Letters: What I tell my friends when they ask me why I’m voting for Trump (10/31/20)

Friends, why I support Trump

When friends ask me why I am voting for President Donald Trump, I tell them I’m not voting for a personality, but for policies I believe are best for our country.

• I’m voting for tax policies that keep businesses competitive globally and sustain employment growth and economic opportunity.

• I’m voting for judges who do not legislate from the bench.

• I’m voting for properly funded and trained police departments that protect all citizens regardless of color.

• I’m voting for an accountable and functional Veterans Administration.

• I’m voting for fair trade policies.

• I’m voting for logical immigration laws consistent with international best practices.

• I’m voting for peace through strength.

• I’m voting for all NATO nations to pay their share of the burden.

• I’m voting for peace in the Middle East and the protection of Israel

• I’m voting for the continued growth of natural gas through fracking and its positive impact on CO2 emissions.

• I’m voting for sensible abortion laws that protect life in late-term situations.

• I’m voting for the Electoral College, so California and New York do not control the election.

• I’m voting for a market-based health plan that promotes competition, protects pre-existing conditions and reduces cost.

I’m sorry my friends can’t get past hating a president with a disturbing personality but also with sound policies.

CALIFORNIA IS NOT ALL RIGHT

Monday, March 25th, 2024

 

Democrats certainly do have a knack for destroying everything they touch !    Nancy
 
California is not all right
March 23, 2024
 

Despite stubbornly high inflation and record-high credit card debt, the economy added 2.7 million jobs last year while unemployment hovered just below 4%. But not all states did as well. California, the gem of Democratic uniparty governance, added just 154,000 jobs, and joblessness stagnated above 5%.

While states such as Florida and Texas grew their workforce by 3.4% and 3.3%, respectively, California’s grew by just 0.87%. All this was while the state budget deficit ballooned to a record $73 billion as revenues from personal income tax collection dropped by 25%.

Why is California’s economy sputtering while the rest of the nation moves ahead?

The simplest answer is that California’s population is shrinking. After more than 100 years of steady growth, California is exporting more people than it is importing. The state continues to have golden sunshine, natural beauty, and warm winters, but bad policy decisions by Democratic politicians who run the state mean people simply don’t want to live there anymore.

The biggest reason people are leaving is the cost of housing. On the coast where the best jobs are, California has some of the most expensive housing in the nation. To afford a median-priced home in San Francisco, a household needs to make $400,000 a year. Actual households in San Francisco make just one-third of that: $136,000.

California’s housing crisis is due to excessive environmental regulation, which makes it impossible to build new homes. While California built just fewer than 120,000 new homes in 2020, Texas built more than 260,000.

The Democrats have certainly done an about face on illegal immigration since 1995 !  This c-span video is a  this reminder of what Democrats used to stand for.

CRISIS ON OUR NORTHERN BORDER

Sunday, March 17th, 2024

 

The number 1 issue in this year’s election is shaping up to be our country’s massive problem over illegal immigration, our open borders and Biden’s refusal to use his powers that congress gave him to stop this invasion into our country.  With the stroke of his pen, Biden could stop this invasion.  Nancy
We’re So Sick of It:  Northern Border Crisis Gets Worse
Border Patrol apprehensions of illegal immigrants at the northern U.S. border have jumped from 916 in fiscal year 2021 to 10,021 in fiscal 2023
by Allan Stein   March 16, 2024

HIGHGATE, Vt.—At dawn or dusk, Kristy Brow used to enjoy alone time walking in the woods on her 21-acre property in Highgate, Vermont, a small rural town near the U.S.–Canada border.

Lately, however, she’s cautious—she’s worried about potential encounters with illegal immigrants along the remote logging trail.

“I don’t go out by myself anymore—especially at night,” said Mrs. Brow, who runs a dog obedience business from her home.

“It’s unsettling. You can’t feel relaxed anymore,” she said. “You want to be safe in your own house and on your property.

“It’s getting bad. Sometimes, you see them on the interstate, looking for a ride.”

Mrs. Brow and her husband are both avid hunters and have deer stands set up on their property. Their game cameras often record illegal immigrants passing through.

RACIAL DISPARITY/RACIAL DISCRIMINATION

Wednesday, March 13th, 2024

 

This  madness of racial disparity is the result of racial discrimination will only lead to  a further rapid decline of our country.    Nancy

Disparate Impact Thinking Is Destroying Our Civilization

Heather Mac Donald

Manhattan Institute

Heather Mac Donald is the Thomas W. Smith Fellow at the Manhattan Institute and a contributing editor of City Journal. She earned a B.A. from Yale University, an M.A. in English from Cambridge University, and a J.D. from Stanford Law School. She writes for several newspapers and periodicals, including The Wall Street Journal, the Los Angeles Times, and The New Criterion, and is the author of several books, including The War on Cops: How the New Attack on Law and Order Makes Everyone Less Safe and When Race Trumps Merit: How the Pursuit of Equity Sacrifices Excellence, Destroys Beauty, and Threatens Lives.

The following is adapted from a talk delivered on February 15, 2024, at a Hillsdale College National Leadership Seminar in Naples, Florida.

The most consequential falsehood in American public policy today is the idea that any racial disparity in any institution is by definition the result of racial discrimination.

If a cancer research lab, for example, does not have 13 percent black oncologists—the black share of the national population—it is by definition a racist lab that discriminates against competitively qualified black oncologists; if an airline company doesn’t have 13 percent black pilots, it is by definition a racist airline company that discriminates against competitively qualified black pilots; and if a prison population contains more than 13 percent black prisoners, our law enforcement system is racist.

The claim that racial disparities are proof of racial discrimination has been percolating in academia and the media for a long time. After the George Floyd race riots of 2020, however, it was adopted by America’s most elite institutions, from big law and big business to big finance. Even museums and orchestras took up the cry.

Many thought that STEM—the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics—would escape the diversity sledgehammer. They were wrong. The American Medical Association today insists that medicine is characterized by white supremacy. Nature magazine declares that science manifests one of “humankind’s worst excesses”: racism. The Smithsonian Institution announces that “emphasis on the scientific method” and an interest in “cause and effect relationships” are part of totalitarian whiteness.

As a result of this falsehood, we are eviscerating meritocratic and behavioral standards in accordance with what is known as “disparate impact analysis.”

 

Consider medicine. Step One of the medical licensing exam, taken during or after the second year of medical school, tests medical students’ knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and pathology. On average, black students score lower on the grading curve, making it harder for them to land their preferred residencies. Step One, in other words, has a “disparate impact” on black medical students. The solution, implemented last year, was to eliminate the Step One grading disparity by instituting a pass–fail system. Hospitals choosing residents can no longer distinguish between high and low achieving students—and that is precisely the point!

320,000 ILLEGALS SECRETLY FLOWN INTO THE U.S.

Saturday, March 9th, 2024

Elon Musk Issues ‘9/11’ Warning; 320,000 Illegal Immigrants Secretly Flown Into US
Crossroads  March 8, 2024
The federal government has now admitted that it has been actively flying illegal immigrants directly into the United States. So far, it has facilitated air travel for 320,000 illegal immigrants. This is in addition to the others who travel to the U.S.–Mexico border and surrender themselves to authorities to enter the amnesty system. Behind this program is a government app that is gaining more attention, known as CBP One, and allows migrants to schedule appointments with U.S. authorities to illegally enter the United States.
In this live Q&A with Crossroads host Joshua Philipp, we’ll discuss this topic and others, and answer questions from the audience.

TUCKER CARLSON – EFFECTS OF SANCTIONS ON RUSSIA

Saturday, February 17th, 2024

 

Subject: EFFECTS OF SANCTIONS ON RUSSIA – TUCKER CARLSON

potustoast.com/tucker-carlson-visits-russian-grocery-store-discovers-americans-have-been-told-a-lie/

While in Russia to interview Vladimir Putin, Tucker Carlson visited a grocery store in Moscow, Russia, and documented his experience. This visit was part of his efforts to understand the impact of U.S. and European sanctions on Russia’s economy. Contrary to the narrative that these sanctions have had a devastating effect on Russia’s economy, Carlson discovered a different situation during his visit.

CLICK BELOW TO VIEW SHORT VIDEO on twitter

twitter.com/i/status/1758097544708538621

Carlson’s video titled “TC Shorts: The Moscow Grocery Store,” provides an inside look at a Russian supermarket. He noted that the sanctions from the United States and other European nations seem to have no visible impact on grocery stores in Russia, despite claims made by corporate media. He also highlighted the variety of food items available in the Moscow supermarket, pointing out that their prices are much more affordable compared to those in the U.S.

This observation raises questions about the effectiveness of the sanctions imposed on Russia and how they are perceived by the general public. It also highlights the importance of firsthand experiences and direct observations in understanding complex socio-economic issues.

During his trip, Carlson also commented on the overall aesthetic appeal and cleanliness of Moscow, stating it was “so much cleaner, and prettier aesthetically — its architecture, its food, its service — than any city in the United States.” He even noted his surprise about the efficiency and cleanliness of the Moscow subway system.

These observations by Carlson present a contrasting view of Russia compared to what is often portrayed in Western media. While this does not negate the political differences and ongoing tensions between Russia and Western countries, it offers a fresh perspective on the living conditions in Russia’s capital.

However, it’s important to note that these observations are based on one individual’s experiences and may not represent the overall economic situation in Russia. The impact of sanctions often takes time to manifest and may not be immediately visible, especially in consumer-facing sectors like retail.

DEMS ALLOW ILLEGALS TO FLY WITHOUT ID

Friday, January 26th, 2024

 

This airline policy  and  the entire  Biden Administration’s policy on allowing illegals into our country  is more than infuriating –  it is extremely dangerous.    Nancy P.S.  I refuse to refer to  these illegals ” migrants”

Dems letting migrants fly without ID are playing Russian roulette with our safety

By Betsy McCaughey, the former Lieutenant Governor of New York    January 23, 2024

If you’re rushing to the airport and forget your photo ID, good luck being allowed on the plane.

But many migrants without “an acceptable form of identification,” according to airport signs, don’t need a photo.

They get special treatment.

Migrants who have entered the country using President Biden’s new CBP (Customs and Border Protection) One app — at least 422,000 — can fly domestically without photo ID.

A sign posted in Miami International Airport tells migrants, “1. Notify the TSA officer that you are a migrant. 2. The TSA officer will take a photo (optional). 3. If requested, provide your alien identification number or biographic information.”

Taking a photo would allow the Transportation Security Administration officer to confirm the person boarding matches the person pictured in the CBP app.

But the airport sign repeats, “Photo capture is voluntary.”

The migrant trying to board could be anybody.

$20 BILLION SPENT ON ILLEGAL MIGRANTS

Wednesday, January 24th, 2024

 

Billions  spent on helping the illegals flooding into our country while our veterans and many other citizens of this country are homeless and sleeping on the streets.   Nancy

DEFUND DAVOS ACT

Sunday, January 21st, 2024

 

Not one more dime should go to fund the World Economic Forum  !   Nancy 

House Republicans Introduce Bill to Withdraw Funding from Globalist’s World Economic Forum

By Jim Hᴏft  Jan. 19, 2024

A group of House Republicans has taken a firm stance against the World Economic Forum (WEF) by introducing a new piece of legislation aimed at cutting off all federal funding to the globalist organization, The Daily Caller reported.

The bill known as the Defund Davos Act was spearheaded by Representative Scott Perry (R-PA), and joined by Representatives Tom Tiffany (WI-07), Paul Gosar (AZ-09), Diana Harshbarger (TN-01), Andy Ogles (TN-05), and Matt Rosendale (MT-02)

The Defund Davos Act seeks to prevent the State Department, USAID, and other federal agencies from funneling money into the WEF.

The proposed bill states, “No funds available to the Department of State, the United States Agency for International Development, or any other department or agency may be used to provide funding for the World Economic Forum.”
