First, I would like to thank David Johnson for his summary of an article by Gerry Giesler from the Epoch Times. Epoch Times is excellent.

The Gazette welcomes all points of view, especially those which disagree with my own. No one will ever be "canceled" on this platform.

Hello again Kelly.
You're right about it being "impossible to relate the problems of Israel and Palestine if [you] had 1000 times the space allotted here...". It's a religious knot of Gordian design tied by Muslim believers more than a thousand years ago. Muhammad revealed a religion unlike any other, until Communism was concocted by Marx. Both religions are determined to enslave the world; Islam offers three choices: conversion, submission as dhimmi (slave status), paying the (jizya) tax, or death. Islam is wholly infused with the obligation of Jihad. "All four principal Sunni schools agree on the importance of jihad. Ibn Abi Zayd al-Qayrawani (d. 996), a Maliki jurist declared": "They [kafirs and unbelievers] have the alternative of either converting to Islam or paying the poll tax (jizya), short of which war [death] will be declared against them. Jihad is an elemental part of Islam, and it is especially designed to fight Christians and Jews."

There has never been a shortage of people determined to rule the world, always through the brute force of superior military power. Often the idea driving these wannabe gods is designed by other delusional, self-proclaimed geniuses. Whether Genghis Khan with his Mongol empire (don't know who inspired Genghis), Julius Caesar, the Abbasid Caliphate, Hitler's National Socialist German Workers' Party - (Nazi), the Chinese Yuan Dynasty, or the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR),these folks all suffered from psychopathic god complexes.

But two players remain in our bruised world, Communism and Islamism, - one very young (1917) and another very old (632a.d.) - both betting their future (and everyone else's) that they will soon own us all, like hapless Uighurs or extras from "I, ROBOT."

It's going to be messy, when Mr. Putin, Mr. Xi, and Mr. Rouhani, are embarrassed to discover that they are not gods - that they must also die and be replaced by the next god-trainee manifesting big ideas, parading his troops with clogging precision, flashy new uniforms and the latest weapons. He will boast of his faster-than-light missiles and invisible planes. He will swagger on stage before his chosen, thousand-man congress, like a stiff-jawed Mussolini of old, flexing his power, his hegemony. And his masses will kowtow in return. It's a most ancient scenario.

But I digress.

You have given a short history of Israel and its inspiring accomplishments. But when I think of Israel today standing almost alone against an anti-Semitic world, with America's foreign policy now in the hands of an utterly corrupt "president", scheming with the far-left communist Democratic Party to hurt Israel by supporting her ancient enemies, I think of the Bible, 2Maccabees 7. I think of the woman with seven sons, arrested with her, and forced to eat pork to show respect for the king, Antiochus IV Epiphanes. "When they refused, he tortured and killed the sons one by one in front of the unflinching and stout-hearted mother." Yes, I'm prejudiced here. I have deep respect for Israel, and the same for Benjamin Netanyahu. It is a mistake to attack this "stiff-necked" people.

Yes, the Palestinians have rights which must be respected, once they have removed the army of Hamas terrorists that call the shots. I think war is most bitterly fought when religion is the central issue. Since the year 632 a.d. (Muhammad's death) Islam's sworn intention has been to convert, enslave, or kill, (in particular) people "of the Book", that is Jews and Christians. This is a principal tenet of Islam for 13 centuries, demanded by their sacred books, the Qu'ran and Hadith. There is nothing like this in Judaism.

The (Arab) Palestinians have lived in the area of Palestine for about 100 years. "The Palestinian Jews lived in the land of Palestine since 135 CE when Rome changed the name from Judea to Palestine (it was NOT a country after Israel was defeated and only became a country again when it was returned to the Jewish people. There has NEVER been a country by the name of “Palestine”). Thereby, the term only applied to Jews for 2,000 years. Only the Jews who battled with Rome were expelled from Jerusalem, while many remained. The Romans never expelled the Jews from all of Judea."

Jumping forwards a few thousand years, into this most recent "war" in Israel, even the fetid voices of the radical Leftist media have documented the fact that Hamas initiated the unprovoked missile attack into civilian populated areas of Israel. Israel is responding in self-defense.

Cutting this thing short, (got off track) I can "...condemn only the Palestinians" because in this conflict it was "only the Palestinians" who began the fight with their missile attacks - by the thousands. As rational people, how else should the Israelis have acted? I look to history for an answer.



My response to Kelly Scoles' "Second Opinion"

Hi Kelly,
I think I can agree with your definition of a fact. The question remains: are claims of systemic election fraud factual? Some people are nauseated by continued arguments on this issue. That's too bad because this issue is key to the continued existence of the American Republic, and that's a fact. Especially during these menacing times, the character of the person entrusted with the powers of the presidency will determine the fate of the nation. If he (she) is known to be strong and fearless America will continue to enjoy peace and prosperity. If that person is weak and corrupt our enemies will attack. Actually they (China) began attacking several years ago; we're like that half-cooked frog in the pot. China is so confident of obtaining world dominance it no longer hides its strategy. The US is so slow to counter even obvious threats and attacks (Taiwan, South China Sea, new military build-up, the China Virus) we face a strategic checkmate, and may hear that word in Mandarin before Biden's final blunder.

Just look at the immediate, tragical aftermath of the Joe Biden Pretendancy (in months). His stack of executive orders has quickly ended our energy independence and destroyed all control at the border. With approximately 200,000 illegal aliens flooding across an open border now (per month) taxpayers will foot the bill for food, shelter, education, medical aid, and police activity, for each person until age 18; hundreds of billions, and just beginning. Biden has corrupted our sovereignty.

If Donald Trump won in a (stolen) landslide, all of these problems would not exist. As everyone is fond of saying these days, elections have consequences, and many of these consequences can be utterly deadly, as we are beginning to see.

But just what are the "facts" presented here, evidencing massive, systemic election fraud?

First, let me ask, what sort of evidence would satisfy you as a reasonable, intelligent, and honest person, that the election was fraudulent? How about mathematical evidence? What about engineering evidence? Or, ballot count evidence, or, sworn, eye-witness affidavits (thousands), or ballot dumping, fraudulent ballots, ballot counting machines (Dominion). Name a type of evidence you would accept, and I can easily provide it.

But it should be noted, though much of this evidence was presented to state and federal courts, no actual hearing was allowed; often the court-maintained plaintiff was too early, too late, or lacked standing - all questionable procedural objections.

Check these sites (most recent) May 8, 2021; New Census data raise serious questions about 2020 election fraud. By Thomas Lifson, American Thinker. A guide to understanding election fraud in 2020 By Andrea Widburg 11-13-2020. " The huge numbers, though, occur when the ballots get fed into computers. The primary computer systems used in America — Dominion and ES&S — are vulnerable to hacking, and their information is poorly secured (and, in the case of ES&S, runs through Europe and Russia). Additionally, Dominion systems have a built-in program that can automatically add a multiplier to a candidate. (For example, it could multiply every Biden vote by 1.5, increasing his count by 50%.)"

By Jay Valentine "United States voter fraud is a nationwide crime perpetrated locally, mostly by Democrats. Republicans either do not do it or when they do, they get caught. It is no coincidence that only Democrats fight voter ID laws, ballot audits in Maricopa County, and investigations in New Hampshire. This month Matt Braynard, Trump’s data guy, issued a comprehensive report on Georgia voter fraud. Read it? If you did, you are the eleventh person after friends and family."

"The purpose of this forensic audit is to test the integrity of Dominion Voting System in how it performed in Antrim County, Michigan for the 2020 election. 2. We conclude that the Dominion Voting System is intentionally and purposefully designed with inherent errors to create systemic fraud and influence election results. The system intentionally generates an enormously high number of ballot errors. The electronic ballots are then transferred for adjudication. The intentional errors lead to bulk adjudication of ballots with no oversight, no transparency, and no audit trail. This leads to voter or election fraud. Based on our study, we conclude that The Dominion Voting System should not be used in Michigan. We further conclude that the results of Antrim County should not have been certified." And...

And... Navid Keshavarz-Nia, PhD.: "In my expert judgment, the evidence is widespread and throughout all battleground states I have studied. I conclude the following: a. The vote count distribution in PA, WI, MI, AZ, NV, and GA are not based on normal system operation. Instead, they are caused by fraudulent electronic manipulation of the targeted voting machines. The unanimous decision to intentionally stop counting by all five battleground states is highly unusual, possibly unprecedented and demonstrates prior coordination by election officials in battleground states."

Kelly, I've been through proof of fraud too many times. Much of this information is from my Realities of December, 2020. The evidence of fraud is there for anyone interested in seeing for themselves. But Americans are too easily bored, tired even of terminal threats. I found a scientific term describing what I call the Biden effect, vis-à-vis China, "A global catastrophic risk..." "A Potential global catastrophic [risk] includes anthropogenic risks, caused by humans (technology, governance, ... Those that will affect all future generations and are "terminal" (meaning that they cause a complete end to the object ..." Sounds a little scary doesn't it. The fragility of existing American security defense against Communist China can be demonstrated by the recent (continuing?) pipeline attack: "Gas Pipeline Hack Leads to Panic Buying in the Southeast ... › 2021/05/11 › business › colon..." "19 hours ago... Southeast on Tuesday, leaving thousands of stations without gasoline as a vital fuel pipeline remained largely shut down after a ransomware attack." This is a preview of coming events - watch China, Russia, North Korea, and Iran emerge like lean, armored cicadas, to feast on our unattended republic.

Yes, I know, China isn't blamed here. But this is further evidence of the pathetic weakness which Biden's "Pretendancy" is dangling before our very hungry enemies. And, again, yeah, I know this all sounds too paranoid for liberal ears. But remember, paranoia is defined as an irrational fear. All this stuff about alleged election fraud has passed the scientific smell test, from mere allegation, to evidence, to proof of fact. But our Communist Chinese enemies don't give a damn about confused American political debates - debate under communism can get you killed.

Let's find a public forum large enough to display all evidence of fraud and have all deniers examine it, an enormous Show-and-Tell for those interested in understanding the scientific facts resulting from thorough scientific scrutiny of the evidence.

Please note the distinguished qualifications of the scientists I've cited who looked at the evidence, therefore the validity of their conclusions. As always, the challenge to you remains: Show us where we're wrong! You can't.

Joe Biden is an imposter.



A response to Kelly Scoles (Second Opinion).

Hi Kelly.
One great mystery that confounds conservatives dealing with liberals in general is the difference these groups have in understanding a set of facts. It's not just the difference in deciding the good from the bad, it's recognizing the real from the unreal - the realities. Liberals use a strange logic. I think that's why I named this column "Realities" 35-years ago, attempting to separate fact from fiction in political discussion.

I believe those who lie about history deserve extra duty in hell. This is not a personal attack on you, Mary, just a conviction distilled from many years of debating this earthly business. It has a lot to do with individual orientation, mine being Roman Catholic, despite its intrepid enemies. So, I don't pretend to be unbiased - my bias lies within Judeo-Christian doctrine, which respects the rule of law as long as that law doesn't violate Judeo-Christian teaching. This attitude is in complete accordance with American Constitutional law, which acknowledges God as the Giver of all our "unalienable" rights, our laws, with fairness a hallmark, and communism its enemy.

Forgive this distraction, but this all has to do with differences in logical "perception," differences between liberals and conservatives, how we interpret facts. For example, you say my disapproval of Democratic Party tactics is "ginned-up", which is to say "artificial", when I know it's truthful and well-founded. (Sorry for getting so philosophical but that's where we are.)

You say "...complete distrust of one of two political parties will destroy that democracy". It's not the "distrust" that's "destroying that democracy", it's leftist Democrats and their un-democratic tactics. This corruption is now so far along that perhaps unconventional action may be justified to set things straight again - a little like saving a kidnapped child.

You say "a certain level of trust in each other" [the parties] is required to maintain governmental normalcy. I agree, but that risky term "trust" can only work when rational, honest men agree to a truthful set of facts which justify that "trust". Those of us accustomed to living in a rich, free democratic-republican nation, are plagued by that deadly thing, naiveté, gullibility. We want to believe our communist and Islamic enemies desire the same western Judeo-Christian blessings as we do, like peace, justice, with our Constitutional (God-given) rights. But this is not true, it is a lie; they do not believe in these things. China, Russia, Iran, and North Korea seek to overtake and/or destroy our government - they each proclaim this very persistently. Islam demands "submission or death" of all non-Islamic "Infidels". Jihad has been mandated since the year 632-a.d.

You denounce "billionaires, the religious right and anti-government militias" as part of the Trump base. If facts and truth are important, we have to admit, virtually all those billionaires are leftist Democrats. Do I have to list them? Start with the "Big Five" and we're talking trillions.

Compared to Democrat-affiliated (and sponsored) BLM, Antifa, et. al., all other "anti-government militias" are only a footnote in this conversation.

Again, we disagree on basic facts. You applaud Biden for his plan to "lift the middle class and poor population ...from stagnancy". Carl Rove shows that Biden actually intends to spend $10-TRILLION in new taxes, not six. Of course, we would have to borrow that money, from communist China.

Maybe we should ask: what would happen to America if a real emergency arose after squandering that money - like a real war! Elections certainly have consequences - but so does hyperinflation.

I heard some grumbling last week about my continued reference to the stolen election. Many years ago I ran to tell a homeowner that his house was on fire - garage fully involved. I was stunned by his calm response (I suspected insurance fraud). I'm watching the burning of our nation and I see election fraud. Evidence of fraud here is simply massive - but willfully ignored.

You find Trump's economic agenda a failure. Have you forgotten in such a short period of time that he created the greatest economic surge in American history? This, at every ethnic level (an undisputed fact). His plan included border control, and energy independence. Biden killed both.

Then, you mention the notorious January 6 "Capitol insurrection," again, a problem of separating the real from the unreal. This was no more than a politically facilitated rave. No fire, no killing (except for Capital police negligence) no firearms, short duration (4-5 hours) virtually no structural damage. Police calmly guided "rioteers" through the barriers. Few if any serious charges brought. Again, complete incompetence of FBI and Capital Police. Compare this to months of true, non-stop rioting, murder, mayhem, arson against innocent homeowners and shopkeepers, at loss of $2-BILLION, courtesy of BLM, and this so-called Capitol "insurrection" is a joke. Leftist (Democratic) governors and mayors aided and abated this felonious activity all summer long.

Your comments end with: "To give up is not an option." So, this "Relican" must carry on, to help prevent "the death of the Republic," and that's another fact.


It's late (11:00 p.m.). I'm running late, and I'm tired and just got started. (This is a planted excuse for a crappy column).

Welcome back Kelly Scoles (Second Opinion). Hope you're feeling better.

This is a tough letter you've given me this week; too many parts to deal with. I'll just go down the line and keep it short.

I think both you and Patti Walker (last week's letters) aggressively stated your opinions. Of course, being conservative, I agree with Sean Hannity and "Tucky" Tucker Carlson most of the time. I believe their opinions are correct and their facts valid. It's not hard to check them out, publicly. They are both traditional, Judeo-Christian conservatives and Donald Trump supporters, as I am.


Watching Joe Biden's frenzied activity during his first months in office is frightening proof of his being utterly controlled by Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders. These two constitute the real US presidency now, wheeling our republic off a socialist cliff. In the face of unparalleled military threats from China, Russia, Iran, and North Korea, America has chosen two of the weakest, most unscrupulous individuals in US history to lead and defend us. This places America squarely into a political, military, economic, and moral crisis. The word "crisis" precisely applies now to all levels of government. Defense threats are imminent, with Russia poised and promising to invade Ukraine, again. China is threatening the same with Taiwan (which we are morally bound to assist militarily - by the Taiwan Relations Act). The act states that "the United States will make available to Taiwan such defense articles and defense services in such quantity as may be necessary to enable Taiwan to maintain sufficient self-defense capabilities"). China is beginning to block the South China Sea - an act of war - among many. North Korea is quietly building intercontinental missiles, with its Asian Bart Simpson saying, "I didn't do it, nobody saw me do it, there's no way you can prove anything", yet! As for Iran, Biden is trying to resuscitate that deadly stupid Obama-Ali agreement, guaranteeing Iran's nuclear bomb-building ability in the near future. (Iran is the world's foremost provider of terrorism.) Bottom line: the US is about to decide whether to defend its allies or abandon them. China and Russia will force that decision.

The Biden administration is cutting the military budget, when we are at a weak point and our enemies are strutting their strategic capabilities. This year will suddenly tell the story of US weakness, before Republicans can recover power.


Here, I have to break off and say a few words about the belated ballot count in Arizona. As long as any Democrat Party members have anything to do with election ballot counting I have no confidence in a true and honest conclusion. Getting states to acknowledge the numerous proven methods to discover systemic fraud in the 2020 election is frustrating. Why not try this?:

Jovan Hutton Pulitzer claimed during the hearing before the [Georgia] Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Elections that he can audit ballots through a process called "kinematic artifact detection.[millions in a very short time]" Pattern Recognition Expert, Jovan Hutton Pulitzer, testifies on Georgia election fraud raw video...." Pulitzer's machine can definitively detect fraudulent ballots, by themselves, no need to examine those Dominion machines. As for the "three prior recounts" - the first was challenged as fraudulent, the next two were a recount of the same fraudulent batch. In other words, if the accurate ballot count was 1,000, but 10,000 were counted three times, we can't say the count was fair or accurate after repeating the same fraudulent count multiple times. This is where Mr. Pulitzer's machine would have shown massive fraud.

Why did all the kings' men on the Democrat side refuse this test, and any others?

So let the Arizona audit continue, and let the other states follow. Only the guilty party would object. Until that time, the man sitting in the Oval Office is an imposter, the product of a stupendously broad criminal conspiracy. He has been officially inaugurated to office (but the ceremony was fraudulent and he is a pretender to the office). No intelligent observer can dispute the multiple mathematical proofs of fraud, and those who think otherwise must overcome the challenge: "Show us where we are wrong!" We have shown the evidence and the proofs of fraud, thus says a long list of PhDs., from such distinguished places as MIT. There are no "sissy standards" here.

The Democratic Party has always had an aversion to the spotlight of truth. They fear a high level of scientific examination of ballots, just as they feared the carefully prepared proof of fraud that lawyer Sidney Powell repeatedly offered, unsuccessfully, seeking a hearing by several courts, including the Supreme Court.
Good night!


Good morning! I'll begin again.

It may sound a tad paranoid but we are now undergoing a broad transformation from a republican nation to a socialist-globalist one, then to communist.

Our schools are morally infected with anti-Judeo-Christian programs. Our Big Media are all but unanimously behind this socialist front. Big Business and unions are in league with Big Banks to push through the socialist agenda. Who's left to save our Republic and Constitution? Apparently only a flaccid Republican Party.

The Biden cabal is spending money faster than it can be printed - or borrowed from China. If not stopped, expect ruinous inflation.

Lastly, but really most immediately important, Biden has breached the dam at our southern border. Now more than 170,000 illegal aliens per month pour freely into our country. I watched a group lowered down the border fence at night a few days ago. When caught and asked their country of origin, the reply was "Ghana” (a West African country).

Joe Biden is sabotaging America's normal population balance to guarantee millions of new Democratic Party votes, creating perpetual Democratic Party dominance by a single-party electoral system. The end of our Republic.

Look for war, hyperinflation, morally confused student bodies, church degradation, a general abandonment of historical American moral values and economic stability, producing continuing social violence. A death of common sense.

Yeah, I know, it's a bit much.


And the crowds cheered when they heard: "Former Minneapolis police officer was convicted of murder and manslaughter and could be sent to prison for decades."

I watched the last hour of the defense presentation in the Derek Chauvin murder trial as well as a half-hour of the prosecution's rebuttal. I think the manslaughter conviction was correct but never thought that the defendant should have been charged with murder, due to a lack of specific intent. The state found the defendant's conduct sufficiently outrageous to reasonably imply the necessary intent for murder. Anyway, he will be going to prison for a long time.

It looks like George Floyd's arrest and handling was correct right to the time police officers failed to ease-up when he was no longer resisting. He was a big man, 6-foot 7, and resisting three officers at first. Nine minutes later he was dead. The video was hard to watch. But I would still argue this was not murder, due to reasonable doubt as to intent.

A number of things bother me about this trial. First, the judge should certainly have ordered a change of venue and sequestered the jury - to shield the jury from halfwits like Rep. Maxine Waters' fire-breathing racism. The trial was held in the center of a highly combustible anti-defendant atmosphere. The crowd threatened to burn the place down in the event of a not guilty verdict; as we are now learning, they may do that regardless. George Floyd's family was also awarded a $27-million settlement earlier, an outrageously excessive verdict given in fear of continued criminal insurrection.

In any event justice was done, if at an extreme level. The question remains, how well will justice continue to serve the people by preventing more free-floating organized riots? As tragic as George Floyd's death is, the full-time salaried rioters are again promising more arson, mayhem, and murder against innocent citizens, shop and homeowners. Their agenda is to communize America under the pretext of fighting "systemic" racism. This goal is a lie, and the riots alone are approaching acts of systemic sedition. This is the modus operandi of George Soros, and Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Microsoft, Google, and Twitter, the demigods of Big Tech, and the firehouse nozzles of limitless cash flows to BLM Riotteers.

What I heard from some in the crowd following the conviction of Derek Chauvin was a sullen desire for revenge against the white man, mixed with some earnest desires for reconciliation. With those sons of Soros (above) stirring the pot, reconciliation seems to be on the back burner. Big Tech and their BLM minions are dividing and conquering America by defaming her glorious history, her Constitution, and achievements. They promote the idiocy of "reparations" for historical injustices, forgetting that 600,000 white people (and black) gave their lives to end slavery. It took our bloodiest war to finish the job - but we succeeded! It was the Democratic Party that poisoned Reconstruction and created the Jim Crow decades; straight through the 20th Century the Democratic Party was responsible for inflicting the racist policies which beat African-Americans down. These days we are rarely reminded of this because Big Tech promotes lies, edits, and "cancels" our communications. Ask (African-American) Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) about this.

So, if Big Tech, BLM, Antifa, and the riotous gangs of Grand Inquisitors continue to inflame the rest of us, it's not unlikely that "fragile whitey" may fire back in defense of life, liberty, common sense, and his pursuit of happiness - availing himself of some of those nearly 400-million arms at hand. This (depending upon circumstances) might be wrong, imperiling our Republic, but this is exactly what the Big-Enemies of our nation desire, chaos. They want to "change fundamentally" our country, from capitalist to socialist, to communist. Their dream is of a globalist, not Republican, world order. Not my words, it's their mantra.

It seems like a big jump from the conviction of Derek Chauvin for the murder of George Floyd, to Big Tech, BLM, and attempts to create the Novus Ordo Seclorum, or New World Order. But this is the truth, told from the pages of a small newspaper in the face of those glowering financial powers the world now yields to. Thank God for the First Amendment to our Constitution. This (new order) is an old idea, an idealized fiction which has caused the murder of many hundreds of millions of innocent peoples during the past 100 years alone.

Read it while you can, by defending our Republic against all enemies foreign and domestic.


I've been watching another orchestrated riot on TV. This one is in the city of Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, following the police shooting of a young black man.

For once, city police, backed by National Guard troops, have shown adequate force to control an unjustified melee. The locals who showed-up early to peacefully protest the death of Daunte Wright, 20, who was apparently shot accidentally by a police officer, were replaced later by the usual BLM-type regulars. The officer, who mistakenly drew and fired her service weapon thinking it was her (less than lethal) Taser, killed the man with a single shot.

Who would not be saddened by the death of this young man, possibly even outraged? Any death, especially an untimely death by violence, brings sadness. But that normal emotional expression never justifies reactions of greater violence by riot, mayhem, looting and arson against innocent victims, which has become routine following the police-death of any African-American, for any reason. Since the beginning of these now routinely expected events, which began after the shooting death of African-American teen Travon Martin (February 2012), professional anarchists have taken over.

BLM, thanks to tens of millions in gifts from large companies and hedge funds like (Black Rock Financial, assets 8.6 Trillion) and Big Tech, have created a truly unopposed Enemy of the Republic. The three young women who founded the organization in 2013 are now rolling in cash. "The [BLM] foundation widely seen as a steward of the Black Lives Matter movement says it took in just over $90 million last year, according to a financial snapshot shared exclusively with the Associated Press." "As protests broke out across the country in the name of Black Lives Matter, the group’s co-founder went on a real estate-buying binge, snagging four high-end homes for $3.2 million in the US alone, according to property records." "It ended 2020 with a balance of more than $60 million, after spending nearly a quarter of its assets on the grant funds and other charitable giving."

Note: "From the FBI's Universal Crime Report in 2014; 90% of Black people killed were killed by other Black people and 14.8% of white people killed were killed by Black people." So, I watch the now familiar scene of organized, professional rioters confronting police and National Guard defenders, opening their munitions backpacks full of rocks and frozen water bottles to throw, and I'm angered and disgusted. When did this become normal? When did state government show themselves to be so impotent? Or were many governors and mayors in sympathy with the rioters? And when did so many ordinary citizens have so little to say and do about it? Most of all, when will it all END?

The acquittal of George Zimmerman in the shooting death of African-American teen Trayvon Martin in February 2012 should have been the end of it. But since that time criminality has become much bolder, and more profitable. It can steal anything - even the American presidential election. It can burn anything and avoid arrest for arson. It can murder anyone, especially police officers, and escape the force of justice. And criminality today is most rewarding up front. It is the mercenary collusion of once-loyal American industry, banking, media, academia, intelligentsia, and religion - those who have enriched themselves to financial predominance, who now betray our Republic. In their insatiable appetite for power, they smilingly kowtow to Beijing and tender two and a half centuries of American freedom for 30 pieces of silver.

I started this column thinking about the possible end to our American civilization, it's rise and fall. Like the 1,000-year Roman Empire, there are definite historical similarities. One similarity has to do with population surges which change the empire by changing the electorate. It happened to the Roman Empire, ruler of the world at that time. That empire, like the (republican) United States of America, became morally corrupt and devolved from simple, stoical Republic to opulent Empire, corrupting military and citizenry alike. Rome started as a country of very serious-minded citizens and ended morally and militarily exhausted, before dissolving. I see America headed in the same direction. The most deadly of self-inflicted wounds is rigorously examined in Tucker Carlson's "The truth about demographic change and why Democrats want it." "Native-born Americans of every race and class are being systematically disenfranchised. We need to start talking about it." This particular calculated change is close to completion.

Watch it on FOX, (April 13, 2021). It's the best examination of this greatest threat to the American Republic I've heard in years. Obligatory viewing (and re-viewing) for patriots.


Response to Kelly Scoles' "Second Opinion".
Hello again, Kelly.
We disagree sharply on the issue of Sidney Powell's lawsuit in the matter of the "systemic election fraud". Arizona is finally attempting to audit its votes. I wish all of the evidence of this historic fraud would be presented in a public forum (judicial or otherwise) where it could be exposed by experts. That would shut down all the angry conjecture. Who but the guilty parties would object?

I disagree with your statement that "no one with any sense would have believed her arguments." I haven't paid much attention to statements alleged to have been made by Powell's attorneys, but if her own attorney said his arguments on her behalf were "idiotic" this would be a serious breach of ethics - and a violation of common sense. Powell's evidence has never been properly evaluated by objective parties.

As for Matt Gaetz (R-FL) as a man now accused of criminal conduct, he is presumed to be innocent until, and unless, proved guilty. This is the Constitutional right of every American citizen, as you know. I recall four years of false criminal accusations against then-President Trump with governmental connivance. Let's let him confront his accusers and may truth follow.

And as for Jim Jordan (Ohio Rep) allegations from 30-years ago, they remain only that. Do we want to go into these sorts of allegations with Democrats? I can't think of a "clean" Democrat leader since Harry Truman. Jim Jordan is a good man and a great member of Congress. It's refreshing to see a strong member speak truth to power as Jordan does.

I haven't kept up with Trump's activities since the election steal so I can't comment.

VP Harris will soon be elevated to President Harris. Thereafter she will be frequently saluted and would be expected to return the salute. She could use some practice.

It's worth taking a closer look at our President-in-Waiting, VP Harris. An essential part of the 2020 election fraud collusion was choosing Biden and Harris. The great election cabal planned very carefully. Knowing Biden probably wouldn't last more than a year after taking office, Harris was counted on to giggle-in as the feeble replacement, absent any qualifications or experience. So, she will be totally dependent upon the Obama leftovers to direct her decisions and create her policies. Our communist-Islamic enemies have only contempt for her and her country.

With the green-eyed monsters of China, Russia, North Korea and Iran keenly observing Harris as pretend president, they see a babe-in-the-woods to be devoured. They see the once most powerful nation in the world reduce its military to a confused paper tiger, betrayed by Progressive, politically correct power brokers - people who are disconnected to all to American Judeo-Christian tradition, culture and purpose. The American Republic is being sold to our enemies for a few more trillion dollars. They are feeding the beast that will defeat them. They will wring the American eagle by the neck and invite the world's millions to overwhelm us. Our government will be destabilized, our military neutered, our schools and hospitals deluged, jobs dramatically reduced, and Democratic Party voting majorities fixed in perpetuity. We will become something strange as our sovereignty slips away.

Sound too fantastic? Our enemies today do not play politically correct games. They don't believe in climate change or green dreams. They don't believe a person can change his own gender. They don't believe in good faith or fair play. They don't believe in Judeo-Christian moral values. They don't believe that mathematics is racist. They don't believe in democracy. They HATE all of these things, and the people who do believe in them. They freely admit they are here to dominate us.
Above all - they don't believe in God. They see all of these things as simply manifestations of weakness, an invitation to be attacked.

So, why should any rational American believe his country is safe?

I believe our nation will be in war, kinetic or electromagnetic, this year.

Why? For the above reasons, and:

China is beginning to block the South China Sea and is targeting Taiwan, which we now cannot counter without heavy loss, or defeat.

Russia has staged massively against Ukraine, and in new Arctic bases.

North Korea has built a credible land, sea, and missile force, and is now unrestrained by the US under Biden.

Iran continues to build nuclear, air, and sea forces, while naive Biden handlers try to resuscitate the disastrous agreement halted by Trump.

All four of our major enemies have now lost all respect for American military and economic strength developed by Donald Trump. There has never been a greater opportunity to attack America, and China will lead that attack. With their (and Russia's) new hypersonic nuclear ballistic missiles, American intelligence admits they can now take out an entire US carrier strike group. Our latest, $13-billion super carrier cannot even launch aircraft reliably with its new electronic equipment (which supplanted the decades-old but reliable steam-launcher).

But why worry? Trump is gone, and Ms. Kamala is running the show!


I have the pleasure of responding to 2 letters this week. First, a letter from Patti Walker of Fillmore. The other from Kelly Scoles' - "Second Opinion". Thank you both.

Hello Patti. Very nice to hear from you. Your letter expressing grave concern over the House of Representatives passage of (HR-1, so-called "For the People Act" [and the Senate's SR-1] ) is spot on. Thanks for helping to spread the word.
After "president" Biden's executive order onslaught, our borders are gone. The new spending bills? Hard to tell anymore, but I think something like $8Trillion is now up for grabs. Think of this: "Though it lasted fewer than four years, World War II was the most expensive war in United States history. Adjusted for inflation to today's dollars, the war cost over $4 trillion and in 1945, the war's last year, defense spending comprised about 40% of gross domestic product (GDP)."
Better tuck away some War Bonds.

Maybe Emperor Caligula also giggled like Kamala as he became Emperor and leader of the world. "...he literally wallowed in luxury, allegedly rolling around in piles of money and drinking precious pearls dissolved in vinegar....feats of waste and carnage during his four-year reign (A.D. 37-41) unmatched even by his infamous nephew Nero.

What will the nation look like in 2004?


The Biden administration is attempting to shape America's voting laws in such a way as to establish a single party government - a perpetual Democratic Party state. If he succeeds the Republican Party will no longer matter and policy debate will end.

Regardless of how much Democratic Party members may despise Republicans, everyone should understand that the Republic cannot continue to exist with single-party leadership - either Democrat or Republican. Democrats control everything now, and they want to keep it that way by doing away with all voting safeguards. As Ms. Walker's letter clearly explains, this attack on our Republic is absolutely huge; "HR-1 will do the opposite of what the house is saying; it will end social justice and equality. Don't give in to their quest for power. Don't be a pawn to further their own interest." And we want only American citizens to be able to vote in our elections!

Contact your Senators and Representatives - express your opposition - loudly!


Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer should adopt a motto like Roman Emperor Caligula: “Remember that I have the right to do anything to anybody.” Power, raw, Big-Money power is the only goal of the Democratic Party and destroying existing voting safeguards is the plan.


RESONSE to Kelly Scoles' "Second Opinion."

Hi Kelly,
I admit that parts of last week's Realities were a bit "outlandish and far-fetched". I was trying to drive-home the non-reality of the LGBTQ (etc.) effort, which is also outlandish and far-fetched. As a reasonable person I demand proof of this extraordinary ability to change one's gender, like I demand proof of systemic fraud in the 2020 election. On the first point, science disproves this claim of sexual auto-mutation. On the second point, massive scientific proof exists beyond any doubt, and no one has successfully challenged the evidence.

One of the greatest glories of American citizenship is the recognition of the God-given right of free speech. This gift, along with many other Constitutional gifts, are in danger of being nullified by socialist Democratic Party activists. It's my intention to express my opinions, right or wrong, smart or stupid, for the express purpose of opposing the socialist enemy. I don't flatter myself into thinking my opinion will move policy mountains, or even mole hills. Outlandish or far-fetched, it's great to live in America and express opinions without fear. And, while I don't agree with much of your opinion, I always respect it, if often wondering why, and I'm sure, vise versa. It's a state of healthy disagreement in our Republic.

About saluting: The president, as Commander in Chief, is always saluted by military members. As V.P., Harris is not obligated to return a salute. It is a question of respect, military tradition, and common courtesy. But this country will pay dearly for her frivolous misunderstanding of our military when she becomes Commander in Chief. God alone can help us at that time when Democratic Party leaders experience the consequences of their treachery.

About the infamous January 6 "insurrection": Let's get the facts straight. The, slowly developing facts show no firearms in Capitol. No fires in the Capitol. Only a few hundred intruders, one felt safe enough to rest in Pelosi's lounge chair. FBI, again, shamefully unhelpful. Whole 4-5 hours staged. Video shows police escorted people through barriers. Most criminal charges minor. CONCLUSION: This was a set piece, part of the coup.

I missed "Republican Senator Ron Johnson's" words so I can't comment.

You mock Sidney Powell without understanding that she exemplifies the stark tragedy of our judicial system failure to rescue the nation from unprecedented election fraud. She just about worked herself to death preparing overwhelming evidence of fraud (in the unreasonably short time provided). She did in fact get "thrown out of every court in the land" not for her "arguments that the election was stolen" but because no court in the land would even LOOK at the thousands of pages of evidence (of systemic) fraud. It's not true that her filings were such "...that no reasonable person would accept them as true." She never even got a hearing.

Sidney Powell is an unrecognized, unappreciated national hero!

Where are today's Minutemen to save our Republic - lawfully?


The Gazette will pay a $100 reward for information proving who the person or persons were who sprayed defoliant on the ficus tree next to the great oak near the intersection of Sespe Ave. and Orchard Streets. Only a sick person would do something like this to a beautiful, historic tree. It is hoped that the tree can be saved.

A response to Kelly Scoles' "Second Opinion".

Hello Kelly,
I think I will frame your letter and hang it on my office wall as a classic example of shaky liberal thinking. It's a perfect specimen.

You attempt to answer the many questions I never asked. The subject of my last column focused upon the outrageous injustice (and should be illegality) of men competing against women in women's sports, under the pseudo-scientific category of "transgender" - a pseudo phenomenon only recently recognized by our politically correct psycho-medical system. (I'm speaking here only of individuals who believe they can actually change their biological gender by simply wishing and believing it is so.) 2000-years of rational, traditional medical knowledge recognizes this (except for some Caesars) as delusion. It reminds one of a young man who wakes up one morning feeling he is a giraffe, and therefore demands that the doorways in his house be raised 10-feet to accommodate the length of his new neck. He's now Woke to his new reality.

I'm thinking of a young man who is "transgendering" who, after triumphing on the women's swim team (for example) believes he should shower-up with "his" female teammates after the meet. Under Title 1X there's nothing to stop him, except Christian tradition - and common sense - both taboo among Woke liberals.

You imply I have never advocated for women's rights? On what basis do you assert this? I raised two daughters, always opening paths to every sport that interested them. I " it to sports" because that was the subject. How many other subjects should I have discussed? And my "true advocacy against men...being allowed to compete against women" under Title 1X, was, again, the subject. It is indeed unfair and (should I say it?) - unnatural - to promote this sort of competition due to the significant male strength and endurance advantage. Do you deny this? Men and women are absolutely equal in dignity and intelligence, but otherwise beautifully unique. My question to you is, do you think "transgender" men should be permitted to compete in all women's sports as pretend women? As you can see, I don't think so.

But why argue about the fairness of "transgender" men competing against real women? A simple resolution to this dilemma is to have all "transgender" men compete against each other. That could draw a crowd.

Something toxic has entered the logical thought processes of young people today. Political correctness is telling them, for example, that mathematics is racist. This might be called a logical fallacy. It's a false idea which is being urged upon unsuspecting political neophytes being fed Orwell's "1984" newspeak propaganda - intellectually corrosive, typical Democratic Party fare.

Then, you begin to lecture me about LGBTQ "or any other term used to label human experience of sexuality or gender, is inadequate..." Frankly, I would be completely happy remaining ignorant of these self-inflicted "challenges and burdens" you describe. God bless them all and make them well again. Free will is one of the greatest gifts of God, right after life itself. I don't understand this group, or as you say, "the people they are becoming." They will choose right or wrong, good or bad, and accept the consequences. They can even change course. As you say, "...we should all take notice of [these folks] and support their human quest". And I agree! With my support I want them all to enjoy happiness, eternally. However, there is only one path to that truth, which is Jesus Christ, who is God, all merciful, and always the same yesterday, today and forever.

Now don't go throwing pots and pans at me for this (I apologize if the kitchenware metaphor is too sexist, - I substitute sticks and stones) but you should have expected a conservative response!

After all, you ask "...if one is a believer in a benevolent and intelligent Creator"...and I am, He is Jesus who wrote the Book so we can confidently travel from time to eternity, into a place called Heaven. I didn't intend this to become some sort of spiritual travelogue, but you made me do it.

Boys and girls have always chosen their own sports. The best women basketball players don't choose to be in the NBA because it would be unfair to have their best players confront, for example, a 325-lb, Shaquille O'Neal thundering up the court (when he was thundering).

Therefore, transgender men should not take advantage of the imbecilic Title 1X (Biden translation) of "sex" to mean "transgender" sex, which will destroy all traditional, competitive women's sports. You trans guys out there, it's time to man-up and leave those pigtails alone.


First off, I have to congratulate Al Huerta, our first Fire Captain, on his retirement. A brief history of his service to the City can be seen on page one. I can personally attest to Al's dedication and professional excellence. He's also one of the nicest guys I've known during these past three decades, and a great mentor for the newer men on the force. Enjoy that well deserved retirement Al!


A major frustration for me in trying to focus the subject of this column each week is the speed with which national issues develop. The nation-shaking success that Democratic Party and co-conspirators had in defrauding the electorate of a Trump election victory has initiated national dissolution. Our historical Constitutional rights, the First and Second Amendments in particular, are being diminished by improper use of Executive orders causing sweeping, unconstitutional changes, without debate.

Among the newest Executive order abominations is Biden's edict permitting transgender "female" athletes to compete against naturally-born (i.e. normal) women athletes, which must obviously end with this sort of result: "Transgender Cyclist Rachel McKinnon continues to smash women’s cycling records, the latest being a “world record” in the women’s 200m sprint." This order spells the end of women's sports. It is done in order to palliate some guy who can't make it with real men and facilitates a new sub-species in the gender war. This unfairness should be obvious to normal people, though not to the legislators who wrote Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972, a federal law that states:

"No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance."

It appears that all that is needed, if you're a biological male seeking glory on a female sporting team, is a heartfelt desire to become female. At the very least, that male should be required to give-up those special male parts in order to join the club, despite the fact of his remaining eternally male - by virtue of that Y chromosome! It takes dos equis to make the normal female team.

It is, of course, an outrageous and unconstitutional attack on all women in their sporting activities. Maybe our somnambulant Supreme Court will finally wake up and smell the Constitutional smoke. Which leaves me with a question: Do the male and female Justices of the Supreme Court share communal bathroom facilities? (i.e. can Chief Justice John Roberts share shower space with Elena Kagan? - bearing in mind the penumbras to Title IX. Liberal judges love those penumbras, under which the toadstools grow, like Roe v. Wade.)

Then we have that ultimate subversive act against republican America, the sweeping $1.9 trillion COVID-19 economic relief package, H.R.1. If the full force of this Kamikaze legislation is implemented by a Democratic-Party-for-Life, and a new unicameral legislature, our Republic will survive only in memory. Know that only NINE PERCENT of this $2-trillion-dollar law is earmarked for "COVID-19 relief"! The rest goes to Democrat Party favorite interests. No Republican House member signed on that dotted line. It is a gift Democrats gave to themselves.

An excellent American Thinker article by Brian C. Joondeph, M.D. (March 16) sums up the threat by tracing the history of Cloward and Piven (two leftist university professors), whose plans for America were introduced in 1966. "Welcome to President Cloward and Vice President Piven, or vice versa for those who believe the current vice-president is really in charge, rather than the cognitively impaired president in name only." The stench of Saul Alinsky's ghost (hero of the communist Left) is strong here.

Cloward-Piven’s goal was the creation of chaos so that: "A political crisis would result that could lead to legislation for a guaranteed annual income and thus an end to poverty."... "The activities of the past year, from an imported Chinese coronavirus to a rigged and stolen presidential election are textbook Cloward-Piven, leading to a massive shift in the leadership and direction of America. We have gone to government by, of, and for the people to a tyrannical autocracy controlled by a small cabal of self-appointed elites".

Biden has destroyed the relative stability on our southern border that Trump established. Our border is now open to the world's uncontrolled hoards of illegal aliens. Recently, illegals from 54 foreign nations have been detained. In just six weeks of Biden's Executive orders, our borders have created an immediate, national security crisis, with no fix in sight.

An unelected President Biden has sown the wind. An ignorant, unelected Harris will reap the whirlwind for, at present, the greatest nation on earth.


My apologies to the late American writer Dixon Lanier Merritt (1879–1972) for last week's pelican limerick. I neglected to credit him.


Mary Scoles - sorry, ran out of time and space to respond to your Second Opinion.


I'm starting this column late after trying to gather some historical background, so I may have to cut it short. I'm glad I'm not a part of the big media, or the medium-sized media, or even the small media. I'm privileged to be a part of the vanishing nano media, so I'm free to scribble on about small personal stuff unthinkable with the big guys - like being late and tired.

But there's nothing small about the threats endangering America today - they're all huge and imminent.

I'm thinking about the destruction the Biden administration is doing at every level of government in its frantic effort to erase all Trump administration achievements. Shutting down so many petroleum producing facilities has wiped out tens of thousands of high-paying jobs, quickly raising the price of gasoline, and reversing our hard-fought energy independent status.

Opening the southern borders to welcome the entire world's illegal immigrants without facilities to properly handle them, in the middle of a pandemic, with Americans out of work, is just another stupid, vindictive move to disrupt Trump's orderly border plan.

There's not space enough here to discuss the mysterious Biden foreign policy ideas because they don't exist. Things have begun to fall apart more rapidly than I had feared. I can see no evidence of competence in Biden administration appointees or nominees. This ship of state is headed full steam ahead without a rudder, and the world sees it all.

Even though I understand what happened during and after the 2020 election, I have to stand back and try to grasp the galactic scope of the consequences. Nothing like this has happened in 2000 years - since about the year 751CE. I can think of no comparable event until 2020 AD., when our Republic was betrayed by the Democratic Party. This betrayal of our Constitution caused the American government to fall into the hands of people whose intention is to change that government from a democratic Republic into a socialist-communist system, a one party institution, a complete transformation of authority.

Why the comparison of the Democratic Party's fraudulent election win of 2020 with the Donation of Constantine in the year 751 CE? It's because both events transferred entire civilizations from legitimate government to illegitimate by truly audacious, orchestrated fraud. In the Donation's case the fraud succeeded for some 700 years. In the case of America's 2020 election the fraud was caught early but Congress and the court system refused to halt the treasonous activity.

The so-called Donation of Constantine purported to effectively "deed" the entire Western Roman Empire to the Pope, with all spiritual and temporal power. "Nicholas of Cusa (1401-1464 CE), seems to have been the first to seriously question the validity of the document and declared it a forgery. This claim was [next] proven by the priest and scholar Lorenzo Valla in 1439-1440 CE."

"The major significance of The Donation of Constantine is that it granted the pope power to engage in temporal, civil, affairs", throughout the entire Western Roman Empire."

One big difference between these two fraudulent events is the time it took to discover the fraud. The "Donation" took centuries to uncover, the Democrat Party fraud was uncovered as it was taking place. Ironically, the first fraud at least was remedied as soon as it was discovered. Though the election fraud and its practitioners and methods are now well known - there can never be a remedy - the consequences of this monumental fraud may well result in the end of our Republic.

In more bluntly realistic times this would have caused an armed rebellion. I believe our federal Capital is now surrounded with razor wire and 10-foot-high fencing, not to protect against falsely alleged fear of some white militia attack. The barriers are there because Democratic leaders understand that their ongoing legislative intentions will be so repugnant, that out of a sense of self-preservation, normal American citizens may rebel to save their Republic. Behind that fence Democratic leaders are busy stitching together plans for the creation of their new, Woke Constitution, using pieces like mail-in balloting that worked so well for them in 2020, and disappearing borders. So they wall-up our Capitol while opening our southern border to the world's millions - millions of new Democrat voters, which will overwhelm the normal balance between the Right and Left, ending the Republican Party by design.

Meanwhile, our sham president Biden and his manically liberal vice shamster, Kamala, are hoping to lead America through the threats of our communist enemies by means of strong, well intentioned feelings. Promoting good vibes and an obsequious reaching-out to Xi Jinping, Kim Jong-un, Vladimir Putin, Hassan Rouhani, Bashar al-Assad, et al. is likely to be disastrously unsuccessful. Our enemies are humorless. But, Facebook and Google can provide America with sunnier perceptions and happier illusions....until....


A response to Mary (aka Kelly) Scoles', Second Opinion.

It's OK to allude to pelicans in your swat at Republicans, Mary, i.e. "Relicans", a bird so full of élan that it inspires poetry: "A wonderful bird is the Pelican. His beak can hold more than his belly can. He can hold in his beak, Enough food for a week! But I'll be darned if I know how the hellican?" - but, nice try. The pelican is historically symbolic of many good things.

I'm glad you recognize Governor Andrew Cuomo to be "... a pain in the neck, smug, bullying, bombastic, ego-maniacal, and now likely... ("leaving aside for now the two sexual harassment claims..."). But wait! This just in -- Cuomo has attracted another sexual harassment claim, number three! Who could hope for more? This is why we refer to leaders of the Democratic Party as Democrats, or Rats for short. Besides, who can say "Joe is a Democratic?"

And, please, as for Senator Cruz at CPAC. What conceivable harm did he do to anyone? He was only behaving like that immortal, symbolic pelican - taking care of his kids. As I said before, he's a good Dad. Talk about "The easy political virtue of the Relicans"? Think about the virtues of a hovering social buzzard like Cuomo!

As for CA Atty.Gen. Xavier Bercerra, OK. OK. We'll call him a doctor, just get him out of California, please. But remember, the majority of Congress is composed of Hypocritic, Oath- Taking Democrats who spawned Joe Biden and family's international rackets.


It's with a sense of sadness mixed with alarm that I think of America's security today. The fraudulent election of 2020 has caused a perfect coup d'é•tat, a perfect seizure of power (the White House, Congress, and the Courts) by the Cabal, Democratic Party and virtually all associated power bases in this nation. Our country has been subverted.

Nothing like this coup d'état has ever before attacked our Republic, and many still deny the fact. Warnings were ignored and Constitutional defenses were withheld. Loyal citizens, after observing the fraud, took hope in our Supreme Court, Courts of Appeal, and District Courts. But our entire judicial system refused to take action, refused even to consider the evidence, before and after the election, and therefore joined the Cabal. The most meticulously constructed case (Sidney Powell's) has just had her final appeals to the Supreme Court dismissed.

“The Supreme Court's failure to address the massive election fraud and multiple constitutional violations that wrought a coup of the presidency of the greatest country in world history completes the implosion of each of our three branches of government into the rubble of a sinkhole of corruption,” Powell said in an email to Forbes Monday. “It is an absolute tragedy for the Rule of Law, the future of what was a Republic, and all freedom-loving people around the world.”

This is a case where the saying "Truth is stranger than fiction" applies absolutely. Despite the rejection by the courts, proof of this astounding, successful criminal conspiracy is indisputable - that is, anyone understanding mathematics, alone, must affirm the conclusion of the most prominent scientists who have studied the election, i.e. the election was systemically fraudulent. To those who continue to dispute this conclusion the challenge remains, here's the proof, show us where we are wrong! There are no takers. Our court system is now largely corrupt.

The election process should have been halted for examination of evidence of systemic fraud. Nothing was done. An emergency election shut-down device of some kind must be mandated hereafter because Democrats are planning another mail-in fraud-fest next election.

Those who disregard the scientific, and eyewitness facts and conclusions, I must say, are fools, or abettors. Their foolishness and disbelief helps to doom the health of our Republic by destabilizing government. The danger is at hand.

That often identified cabal of power mongers, once again: Big Tech, Big Industry, Big Banks, the Democratic Party, Big Teacher's Unions, Big Media, and Communist China, seasoned the conspiracy with unlimited cash (nearly $400 million from Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook) in the Georgia run-off). Corrupt liberal state courts, governorships, and mayoralties, managed details as well - with paid-off turncoat Republicans. In short, absolute power has corrupted absolutely.

Skipping the practical details, this is what happened, and what may happen again soon.

A Trump landslide of historical proportions was overturned at the last minute. An illegitimate, mentally challenged person was (as planned) fraudulently inaugurated president, and a woman known more for her sleeping arrangements than for any successful executive experience, was trotted-in as vice president.

Sham president Biden began his term as expected, exhibiting cognitive dissonance and a frantic determination to begin legislating by signing more than 40 executive orders immediately, canceling many Trump orders. Obama and Trump authorized less than 10 during their first year. Biden is unable to speak with leaders of foreign nations, as is traditional, and has sham VP Harris handle the calls instead. He has avoided his State of Union Address. We should be mindful that sham VP Harris knows nothing about foreign policy; what does she say to those foreign leaders?

Biden's mental incapacity is so pronounced now that we should be asking who is making the every-day decisions, for example, who decided when and where Iran was recently attacked? Who made that decision? How will Biden (or Harris) handle North Korea? I try to imagine Ms. Harris engaging with Mr. Kim about nuclear issues. What about China's planned attack on Taiwan? The South China Sea?

And then there are the special issues of Communist China, a personal friend and business associate of sham president Biden for years when he was pimping his son Hunter out for the family's huge, lucrative deals, in the billions. Then there are the two laptops with "tens of thousands of tapes, photos, and documents of a criminal nature, including drugs, child porn, and Hunter's participation in this conduct. See: Tucker Carlson footage of Tony Bobulinski (a Biden family CEO) interview on Biden family, with credible, emails, text messages, phone calls, credit cards, and Homeland Security Committee corroboration.

But, nobody wants to hear the facts!

Imposed silence is also clear evidence that the liberal media are enemies of the American people (free speech). This is why it's so difficult to show any facts proving the Biden family has been a criminal syndicate for many years. It's just too astounding for many to believe, but those credible emails, text messages, phone calls, credit cards, and Homeland Security Committee corroboration establish the facts.

I've strayed again from the message. Watch closely and ask - who is acting as chief executive of the United States? Who is pretending to be Commander in Chief of our armed forces? Who is in charge of the "atomic football" (which 30-plus Democrats signed a petition to have removed from Biden's possession)? It's NOT Joe! And Kamala is clueless.

Our government has fragmented. Time to duck and cover - or get Trump back!


My thanks to David Johnson for his letter and (the recently late) Rush Limbaugh's final letter to President Trump. Rush was one of the greatest political thinkers, communicators, and patriots of the past 100 years. I agree completely with Rush's assessment of President Trump's character and extraordinary accomplishments in four short years. His fraudulent election defeat marks the beginning of the end of our American Republic if this crime remains unacknowledged, the criminal conspirators escape conviction, and if courts fail to provide absolute protection against such future treason. For now, American democracy is in severe jeopardy, at the point of communistic conversion. Beware the Democratic Party and its Chinese Communist Party subversives.


Response to "Second Opinion", by Kelly Scoles.

Hello, Kelly.

How can I correct you? Let me count the ways.

Let's begin with your statement "...the weaponry retrieved from the mob in Trump's Capitol War." No firearms were found on the 100 or so rioters who entered the Capitol building. Among the 100,000-plus demonstrators outside the Capitol, weapons were found on Capitol grounds and elsewhere. "The grounds immediately surrounding the U.S. Capitol are bordered by a stone wall and cover an area of 58.8 acres." Inside the Capitol, during the riot, weapons "...including hockey sticks, flagpoles, fire extinguishers and a police shield stolen from an officer" were found. This is not to say the invasion was not criminal in itself. But it's interesting to note that despite the trashing of office files, most office floor lighting and furniture was largely undamaged, and the building was not set on fire, as is typical of serious rioting (like last summer) by BLM and Antifa.

Also, the single death by firearm was due to a poorly instructed Capitol police officer who had not learned to leave his trigger finger out of the trigger well and along the slide, instead. The rest of the officers complied with this universal safety manual of arms requirement and did not fire. Video shows a rioter throwing a fire extinguisher at the head of a police officer, who later did die of other causes.


Texas Governor Abbott is renowned for quick action. Video shows him wondering why Biden was taking so long to respond to his appeals for assistance in this once-in-a-hundred years emergency. Many suspect political revenge. Abbott merely encouraged Texans to be strong, as they are famous for being, while explaining the large range of emergency actions being taken. The guilt for insufficient preparedness lies with the Texas grid company, ERCOT.


Senator Ted Cruz (whom I admire for courage, truthfulness, and intelligence) took his two daughters south for a long-planned vacation - and promptly returned home to Texas. He's a good Dad.


As for your libel of Rush Limbaugh, who died last week: "...if the truly malign state of political affairs in the country could be laid at the feet of any one person, it would be Limbaugh." You say he is guilty of routine comments which were "...rude, cruel, racist, misogynistic, homophobic, conspiratorial, and undemocratic, things that [others] were too afraid or "civilized" to say." It must be exasperating to run out of nasty adjectives in the middle of a tirade, so long before you run out of never-Trump hatred. Rush got the central issue in American politics today right, as you recall, “Democrats were enemies of the state and were '"not entitled to govern.'"

The outrage of the 2020 fraudulent election steal (scientifically, indisputably proven by numerous means - and now admission!) affirms the validity of this last condemnation.

I first heard Rush on radio in Seattle, in the late 1980s. Given the fanatical liberal bias in that city, I wondered how long it would be before the enemies of free speech shut him down. He was a singularly positive phenomenon! He gave hope to a dying conservative populace, and 32-years later he finished the race, accomplishing a true miracle of political enlightenment.

Eternal rest grant unto him, Oh Lord, for he was a genuinely good man.


A response to Kelly Scoles “Second Opinion.”

It's often challenging for a conservative to debate a liberal because, in responding, the conservative usually has to spend so much time correcting so many false premises of the liberal that too much time is eaten up to reach a valid conclusion.

I'm not knit-picking, here are some examples, (paraphrased): "Vast majority, Republican Senators don't care that Trump violated every democratic standard of high office, and every oath he took - inciting a riot." Let's remember, he was acquitted by the Senate. He was found innocent of inciting riot. (To shorten responses all will be paraphrased.) "House managers did good job..." House managers did a pathetic job, had absolutely no evidence, and the RS did not "twirl and show knickers.” They were steadfast, as though wearing kilts; and no one knows what lies beneath a kilt!

You continue: True, "McConnell took to the podium claiming Trump guilty as charged". True as well, McConnell was without kilt, shaming the entire Congress with his flowery knickers - not Knickerbockers mind you, true knickers.

"The Senate established jurisdiction over a private citizen? If so, be careful. The omnipotent Senate may impeach you for associating with the conservative Gazette, destroying any future political office you may have been coveting. "Past bad presidents refrained from like conduct because of likely consequences." Not true! Hillary Clinton, once denounced as the " Goddess of Untruth", continues to enjoy popularity among her Marxist friends. The person responsible for that sobriquet was unfairly criticized; after all, she was elevated to a supreme distinction, not merely royalty, like a duchesse.

About those "...white nationalists and militia fringe groups". With true blood-letting arsonists, looters and killer-anarchists in the Antifa-BLM family keeping us busy, who has time to search for the White Lives Matter Too folks? After all, they weren't burning and looting throughout last year's (cop-hating) $3-billion Seattle "Summer of Love".

"The president advocated it (Capitol riot)”. Once again, not so. The FBI, Nancy Pelosi and others knew, weeks before the break-in, that the riot was planned, including pre-placed pipe bombs. Again: "Trump threw gasoline on their heavily armed impulses to save their country." None of the 100 or so intruders were armed. The woman killed was shot by a poorly trained police officer. None of the other deaths were due to deadly force - including the alleged fire extinguisher.

Your hatred of Donald Trump is uncovered by your description of him being "emotionally-crippled, and unprincipled". His nearly 80-million ardent supporters disagree with you. But we at the Gazette salute our First Amendment which confers, from God, your right to say such things, even when misguided. "We were given opposable we could use them.” At last, I have to agree with you. Those thumbs can indicate rejection - with a downward motion indicating outrage at the fraudulent election steal and unconstitutional impeachment of an ex-president with a perfect alibi - and an extraordinary, patriotic record.

I have to rest my case because it is 12:30 and I'm an old man.


Just one more thing, Kelly. Last week you intruded the "artist" Jackson Pollock into the conversation. Haven't heard much about that man for a long time. But a quick check of his work confirms my previous opinion. Art historians will scoff (or throw something) but when a man can become famous by dribbling any kind of paint on a large floor canvass (even auto body paint, applied with a turkey baster) (...Dubbed "Jack the Dripper" by Time magazine) and have his work sell for big bucks, I wish I had someone with similar talents to sell subscriptions for me. His work should be left on the floor. I continue to think that any purchaser of his "paintings" has to be a clueless liberal. But....

"No. 5, 1948, by Jackson Pollock sold in 2006 for $140 million. At the time, it was the most expensive painting ever sold. It was originally sold in 1949 for $1,500."

Just the same, Kelly, I prefer paintings from the tube and brush, not a can of paint and a turkey baster - and the person who bought that 1948 No. 5 was a loon.

To think that Renoir and Manet can be had for under $70mil today - now that's a bargain.

It's comforting to hear that Leonardo da Vinci's Salvator Mundi sold for US$450.3 in November 2017, top of the market today. And they didn't ask me - but I don't think it's a Leonardo! Probably just done by someone who hung around the studio. It used to be that you could buy a Van Gogh for an arm, a leg, and an ear. Today you can take one home for something near the $70s - the same with a Manet.

But I really digress because I'm tired of thinking about catastrophic politics.

One last thing, Kelly, and excuse my English and ignorance, but - what the hell is a Pimms Cup, and who painted it?


A response to Mary Scoles "Second Opinion."

Saying "Second impeachment and second trial for one president" certainly makes the whole thing sound official, even important. But most Americans know by now the American Democratic Party of years-gone-by has mutated, it is no more. The mutation it has suffered is a disease, a genetic disorder, which has unleashed it to the dark side of reality where truth is a stranger. All the impeachment efforts by Democrats are national embarrassments.

The cause? The cause is a self-destructive, near suicidal craving for power - at any cost. So, after the stunning 2016 election loss, the Party was Woke to this promise: "All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me." So, they knelt before their demigods, and the scheme proceeded.

An astounding admission of the election coup can be found here: "But surprise, surprise, the cabal has come out of the closet in a shocking piece that ran in Time magazine titled: "The Secret Bipartisan History of the Shadow Campaign that Saved the 2020 Election" by Democrat-with-byline Molly Ball” Now that the traitors feel home free, they boast of their success. Molly continues: "That's why the participants want the secret history of the 2020 election told, even though it sounds like a paranoid fever dream — a well-funded cabal of powerful people, ranging across industries and ideologies, working together behind the scenes to influence perceptions, change rules and laws, steer media coverage and control the flow of information. [emphasis mine].” She is talking about the enemies of our democracy. "Control flow of information" (like Hunter Biden crimes) see "demigods": Big Tech, in particular, Facebook, Googel, Alphabet, Amazon, and Apple. These demigods worship themselves, while demanding veneration by all others. But the god they must worship is Communist China, which supplies an endless flow of cash to grow treason in America. Throughout the years the cry of "Cash! Cash for souls!" can be heard. And many are bought out of the highest places - Congress, Wall Street, Unions, Education, the Deep State and State Government, all are corrupt. The ravenous appetite for Chinese money consumes all natural political virtues, including Truth, Justice, and what used to be the American Way of Freedom. Millions of Americans have died in battle to preserve these virtues, now so frivolously discarded by Marxist Democrats.

And the true American patriot, as always, pays the price, like Mike Lyndell. (Mike should be helped by Republican billionaires!) Today, in the political arena, the law itself plays pimp to China, procurer for Wall Street, Big Tech, and the rest of America's obsequious defectors. Nothing matters to them but power, and money provides that on an unprecedented scale. Traitors all.

These multi-billion-dollar defamation lawsuits by Dominion and Smartmatic seem suicidal to me. Believe it or not, pristine scientific statistical, mathematical, mechanical and now thousands of sworn eye-witness affidavits, should be sufficient prima facie proof of the fraud, for any honest court. But who actually caused it? Not us, Dominion will say; we just sold the machines. But no one knew those machines better than the company that designed them, and the design facilitated fraud, with how-to instructions. They no longer owned the machines or software. On the other hand, the defendants will yell "res ipsa loquitur!" (the thing, fraud, speaks for itself). I hasten to say I'm not a lawyer, just someone who likes to toss foreign words around once in awhile. I wish I could have a front row seat at this trial! I think Dominion must show malice, something I think that's hard to prove vis-à-vis mountains of scientific proof of actual fraud. Dominion might try the Bart Simpson dodge: "I Didn't Do It, Nobody Saw Me Do It, There's No Way You Can Prove Anything!" In any event, the defendants here will probably respond with a lawsuit, or more, of their own. A brutal tactic of the Democratic Party Left is to crush the defendant with overwhelming costs of litigation, when there is little merit to the case, like they did to General Flynn, to intimidate and/or destroy. Remember, Dems have access to more money than they can use. (Mark Zuckerberg gave nearly half-BILLION to Dems in the Georgia run-off!)

But I digress!

Mary, I think the Gazette has been generous to you with its space over the years. That generosity will continue - res ipsa loguitur!

Jayson Pollack was a liberal - with lousy taste. Trump's "2021 Capitol War" was really a typically specious, 12-hour, attack on Republicans, after Dems encouraged arson, mayhem, and murder all summer long. Cancel Culture could, if not stopped, cancel our democratic culture. "Marjorie Something Greene" before winning by 70-percent of her electorate, said some spooky things. She recanted. It's not the business of the Democrat House to Cancel Republican members of whom they disapprove! Leave that to her constituency. When will Democrats begin apologizing for their (Maxine Waters's, et al.) violent threats, lies, and foolery? Ms. Greene received a standing ovation for her courage - she was standing tall against the enemy.

Mary, you mock the efforts of conservatives to get justice with due process relating to this last presidential election. You see no fraud though it's clearly proven. To put all of the fraudulent electoral machinations, by the persons and organizations mentioned above, into one place, would shift the planet's gravity. I feel sorry for the many individuals who have to endure the Dominion lawsuits; even if they "win" it will ruin them financially. The suit intimidates those seeking truth and justice in American government, by design. My feeble hope is for billionaires on the Right to assist the defendants in this case, to level the playing field. Otherwise, the "god" and demigods of this world will have stolen our democracy and the American dream.


Hello, Mary (Scoles).

This time I'm determined to finish engaging in a few issues with you without interruption. While the success of the criminal conspiracy to install Joe Biden as "president" of our country will forever preoccupy my thoughts, this China virus, as co-conspirator, is also high on my list of troubles.

As for "the increasing mutation of Covid-19" I offer an expose' on Dr. Fauci. On the issue of masks, I'm a little confused. See: "If One Mask Doesn’t Work, Try Two, or Three, or Four"… - Ted Noel, MD, American Thinker, Jan 31, 2021.

Let me run through some of your statements. My information on the influenza pandemic comes from a very informative book: The Great Influenza, by John M. Barry, (Penguin, 2005).

Strong evidence shows that the influenza pandemic of 1918 started with "...someone from Haskell County, Kansas, carried the influenza virus to Camp Funston. Around February of 1918. “Within three weeks eleven hundred troops at Funston were sick enough to require hospitalization. Twenty-four of the thirty-six largest Army camps were soon infected." Quickly thereafter thirty of the fifty largest cities in the country were also infected.”

To shorten the history, American troops going to France to fight in WWI infected allies, and then the German troops. Why labeled "the Spanish Flu"? Spain being neutral during the war, Spanish newspapers were not censored, and details of the war, including the flu, could not harm the Spanish military. Coverage by the warring states was censored to avoid damaging morale of their troops.

How many died world-wide? "In the 1940s Macfarlane Burnet, the Nobel Laureate who spent most of his scientific life studying influenza, estimated the death toll at 50 to 100 million." "...with most of the deaths coming in a horrendous twelve weeks in the fall of 1918 -- in excess of 5 percent of the people in the world died." "The worst mortality figures fell upon those aged twenty-one to thirty."

You mention "many theories" about when, where, and why COVID-19 erupted. The recent FOX news program, Steve Hilton, investigates origins of COVID-19, links to US commissioned research, Jan. 25, 2021 - 15:49 - 'The Next Revolution' host breaks down the evidence surrounding the origins of COVID-19. This is truly alarming information concerning Dr. Anthony Fauci, the top virus expert in the U.S. It turns out that COVID-19 was purposefully designed in a dangerous "gain of function" research project. Its goal was (is) to create truly "novel" viruses that can be transmitted to human hosts 10 to 20 times more easily than normal. This project (gain of function) was funded for 3 years, in China by Dr. Fauci, after the Obama administration ordered a stop to the experiment for being far too dangerous. Formal, detailed documentation of this expose' is solid.

Fauci funded the China research with $3Million, for three years, despite the stop order from Obama. This activity has given the world numerous "novel " Frankenstein viruses, completely unknown before, weaponized through extraordinary reverse genetic engineering, and many times more infectious and lethal than any known natural viruses. It's unfair to call it a Frankenstein thing. After all, Mary Shelley's 1818 novel did not make her creature evil. It had no name and was created by Dr. Frankenstein; but Dr. Fauci's communist, man-made super virus is indeed entirely evil. Every American must view this report to see why "the virus" will not go away, normally. This FOX report is spectacularly well supported by official documentation, names, dates, and amounts.

Dr. Fauci (hero to unsuspecting millions) now exposed as a mad scientist in league with the enemy for pay, to advance Communist China's newest, quietest, most indiscriminately devastating tool of death. After Joe Biden, just how many Gain-of-Function Judas clones can be tolerated before its checkmate for America?

Let's hear it for Dr. Anthony Fauci, the world's top disease designer. He could soon have America in an arm-bar hold for total submission to Communist domination. China expresses this goal boldly. The expert on this issue is Michael Pillsbury. In his The Hundred-Year Marathon: "Pillsbury marshals a lot of evidence showing the Chinese government has a detailed strategy to overtake the US as the world’s dominant power. They want to do this by 2049, the centennial of China’s Communist revolution." This should not be news to anyone paying attention to world events.

This is why I see so much darkness in America's near future. First, we witness a grotesquely fraudulent presidential election (and failed judiciary) placing the nation into frighteningly incompetent Marxist hands, then encountering Communist China's "perfect" weapon of silent mass destruction. How can we respond defensively when unable to definitively prove the source - of perhaps repeated attacks? And we destroyed our defensive stocks of chemical-biological weapons long ago - to assuage liberal sensitivities. Maybe we suffered an attack of stupid-gas at that time.

My friends, Almighty God is still in charge. If we get back in step maybe He will hear our prayers for help amongst the sound of oncoming Communist boots.


I'm not a pessimist, although an honest discernment of America's near-term health, safety and independence is, in my opinion, not good. Frankly, due to the theft of our last election, it's dark. The most painful part is the fact that we (Trump electors) have no remedy for this shocking, unprecedented treason. Constitutionally, we should have been able to at least halt the action and spotlight the crime. It didn't happen.

Fraud was expected by Republicans. It has always been a seasonal experience, especially in "election sewers" like Georgia and Pennsylvania. Until the last possible day fair-minded voters believed that our proverbial "court of last resort" would come to the rescue and stop the steal. Instead, our Supreme Court justices turned their backs, refusing even to look at the mountains of carefully prepared evidence of systemic fraud. This collapse of judicial integrity hit the Republican electorate wronged by the fraud, a second time, like an unexpected Mike Tyson smashing right to the face. The injured 80-million were left without recourse. The American judicial system lost many believers, including myself.

The treacherous Never-Trump Left triumphed in its infamous assault on our Constitution, destabilizing the Republic. Like that crack in the Liberty Bell, it will never be fully repaired.

I've always had a special love for the law. Haunting used bookstores in my college years, I purchased two special books, when cash was always short, for $50 apiece. One tome was an unabridged dictionary of Shakespeare, the other "Cooley's Blackstone: Commentaries on the Laws of England”. I enjoyed perusing the Commentaries. When America was still young every lawyer needed one. I was also impressed to find it so infused with Christian tradition. Both books are still in my library. Though the internet has made them more quickly available, there's nothing like the original.

So, a special sadness brackets the anger I feel at the clear demise of our Constitution by the men and women whose sacred duty it is to preserve and defend it. These traitors deserve a special place in history, as in Dante's Ninth Circle of Hell. "This final, deepest level of hell is reserved for traitors, betrayers and oathbreakers (its most famous inmate is Judas Iscariot)".

There seems to be no remedy for the stolen election. But, the damage done, the perpetrators are ecstatic with the results. The long-term consequences will be catastrophic, starting immediately with crazy executive orders; Biden will sign anything because he is indelibly compromised by China, his old partner in crime, and his rabid left wing. In short, the lengthy Biden family criminality throughout Europe and Asia will go uninvestigated and unpunished. All of the criminal members of the nation's highest offices (FBI, CIA, NSI, DOJ, etc.) will go uninvestigated and unpunished as well. All the bogus investigative "evidence" of Trump "Russia Collusion (4-years)" will disappear. The Clintons will escape, again. The corrupt players of the Obama administration are on for a second run - untouched. The fix is in to pack the court, eliminate the filibuster, make the DC and Puerto Rico give birth to additional senators and representatives, and end the Republican Party forever. We will then be a one-party organization, like California, no longer a Republic. A clean sweep for villainy.

In other words, justice will never be done -- despite four years of phony investigations, leaving hundreds of innocent individuals defamed, financially ruined, and otherwise injured, without recourse. Eventually, the whole tragic story will be told for posterity's sake, a lesson of government betrayed, how the Republic fell. We must remember who did this to us.

One of America's greatest, most successful Presidents, Donald Trump, will leave condemned by treacherous Democrats, but a hero to 80-million Republicans. Adding insult to treason, today, Democrats have launched a vengeful and preposterous second impeachment. The law no longer applies to that Party.

War with China is inevitable, as is its attack on Taiwan. The China virus will stay because Mr. Xi enjoys his new weapon. New viruses will appear from China because China uses it as a choke hold in preparation for further aggression. Israel, having lost her best friend in Donald Trump, will probably have to attack Iran, alone. Trump was abandoned by friends and betrayed to his communist enemies.

I've seen the fullness of America's government decrepitude in this last election steal, to place an illegitimate "president" in office. I have lost my trust in the integrity of most of our institutions, our Congress, our courts, and in the state infrastructure. America has been infected with a double virus, one foreign and one domestic. We are now wobbling into the future with a bastardized "president" trying to stay awake.

But not to worry - it will be fearless Kamala to the rescue.

The End.


My thanks for letters from Mr. and Mrs. Dave Johnson, Kelly Scoles, and Art Sandford Sr.

No response required here for the Johnsons, there words speak for themselves.

Hello Kelly. My apologies for being unable to answer your letter last week. Just ran out of time and space. I certainly hope the country continues to be stable, but honestly, we're in for a dangerously rough time.

Hello Art.

I appreciate your response to last week's comments.

It's always tough to break through that liberal trademark barrier of reality-denial in order to engage in argument, but I'll try.

In order to save time, I would skip the "inferences" you mention. Let's just talk facts, verifiable by a half-dozen means.
First, I congratulate you and greatly respect your father for his distinguished military service to our country. I'm glad you inherited his strong anti-communist beliefs. Virtually all members of my family, both sides, as well as myself (though most in no-war years) served our military. In particular, my great uncle Edward Eaton served the Union during the Civil War, and I am honored to retain his infantry saber and sash. When did you serve, Art?

But we're crossing swords, metaphorically, as individuals with strongly different political ideas. While I certainly respect your views and your right to express them, I do the same for myself, that makes life interesting.

You continue to vilify Jay Valentine's work on election fraud. Clearly, you haven't read his voluminous materials or studied his methods, or reputation. Here are a few more experts: Jovan Hutton Pulitzer, Peter Navarro, Dec 17, 2020. ‘The Immaculate Deception’ Report, Russell Ramsland, Patrick Byrne, Special Report with Patrick Byrne. They provide factual, scientific proof of systemic fraud. I ask you to challenge these facts, and/or methods. Incidentally, (thanks to Big Tech) blog evidence is being removed from the internet: "This video has been removed for violating YouTube's Community Guidelines." I used it last week! Isn't free speech great!

You say "The challenges facing this country can only be met through thoughtful, civil discourse and rationale, well-planned actions." Hard to have civil discourse when the platforms of speech are arbitrarily removed. Where was your side's "civil discourse" during the $2-billion riot-fests of 2020, with all the arson, theft and murder? If you were not sympathetic to the Democrats during the incessant 4-year attacks on Trump, are you just kind of angry about Making America Great Again? Otherwise, what are we debating?

I think it wasn't unreasonable for me to assume you were a Democrat (being sympathetic to that Party's animus to Trump) by your statements. I have to chuckle somewhat at hearing Harvard Data Science Review. I can find 10 truly unbiased forensic studies for every Harvard one. Jovan Hutton Pulitzer (study above), until this obvious fraud issue popped up, had only contributed to Democrats. Your Ph.D in Education is no more helpful in the forensic auditing of large scale statistical data pattern analysis, than my J.D. would be helpful, or, for that matter, Mrs. Biden's Ed.D. The work has been done by the most eminent statistical data pattern analysis experts; why not look at it, even though the courts shamed themselves by refusing to do so? By characterizing the election as "...fairly mundane" you show yourself to be either untruthful or willfully ignorant. The science is there! Scientific refutation is not.

You question the number of co-conspirators needed to pull-off the scam in 50 states. Again, you have not studied the issue. Where have you been? All sides concede that only the "swing states" would be needed, and that is where the fix was accomplished. Though 3,000 affidavits tell of individual voting fraud, the truly massive fraud came with the internet-attached Dominion machines. To understand exactly how to do it one has only to read the Dominion manuals. There are several video demonstrations available on YouTube as well. Dominion is famous as a do-it-yourself fraud machine. See: Election Fraud Evidence - Jovan Hutton Pulitzer - YouTube. Shall we duel with the links? Mine are objective, scientific, and open to forensic analysis.

As to "insurrection deniers on right wing media" (didn't know there were any right wing left), it was a strange insurrection indeed - a hundred or so colorful felons easily entering the capitol (video shows police opening barrier for them) stopped within 24-hours, and one officer who didn't know how to handle his firearm. All criminals will be punished strongly, unless found to be Antifa or BLM veterans of last summer's 6-month, $2-billion, multi state riots. Now that was true insurrection, in duration and intention.

I'm crushed by your mean-hearted characterization of "Mr. butt-hurt Trump and his acolytes." You crucify him for allegedly bad manners, yet you invite Biden and Harris to the inaugural table, though we are warned: "Do not give what is holy to dogs, and do not throw your pearls before swine." In ignoring the warning, today we've also tossed the crown jewels.

The nation will miss him very soon after he's gone. By its desperate fraud the Democrat Party (and its Deep State conspirators) have deprived the nation of a great leader at a crucial time, and 4-years of future stability. America will be eaten from the inside out, like the Biden family has been doing for years. We're going to experience a dystopian horror show with Joe Biden shouting Olly olly oxen free while the slimiest of power-craving swamp creatures will be seen quickly slithering for power positions.

Today, despite Potemkin appearances, the world is viewing an extraordinary inaugural crime scene. Eighty million Americans have had their nation stolen through an audacious, fraudulent conspiracy. We now have a virtual president controlling the nation's power as Commander in Chief, with his revolting sidekick for back-up. The Deep State will again coalesce and continue its transformation of the Republic to a globalized socialist underling among nations. Communist China will subsume our Judeo-Christian culture and economy, eventually treating us like the Uyghurs, once Autonomous, now enslaved by the millions. Democrats have sold-out America for money, lots of cash. The Big Tech coffers will swell beyond our understanding with deals made in China - but, eventually, an omnivorous communist China will eat them as well.

As Joe Biden and his venal consort approach the swearing-in, I see only a Catholic Judas and a gleeful [!@#$] of Babylon bringing up the rear.

Only an omnipotent miracle can save us now.


Hello Tom Somers.

Nice to see you back. I apologize for lack of time and space. Just time for one thought -- have you ever read the Black Lives Matter manifesto on their website, about their hatred for the traditional family, etc.?


Once again I have three letters to respond to: Marjie Bartels, Kelly Scoles, and Art Sandford Sr.

Dear Mrs. Bartels, thanks for the letter. I too am sensitive about flags, especially our American flag which is so frequently burned by radical leftist Democrats and their BLM-Antifa-compatriots. May I suggest a good old-fashioned American solution? Why not have the Board members vote on whether to fly that flag? No mail-ins. No adjudications. Paper ballots only!

Just a friendly suggestion. Good luck.


Thanks again Mr. Sanford.

There is no need for you to fear that your letter would not be published. I have always invited opinions contrary to my own, and (forgive the humorous size comparison) but unlike Mark Zuckerberg, Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, and Sundar Pichai, I encourage controversy instead of stifling it, though the audience is much smaller.

To be fair, I think you should check your notes again about Jay Valentine, because I know how scrupulous Democrats are about seeking political truth. Not that I doubt your knowledge of statistical pattern analysis, and forensic audit analysis by data scientists, several of whom on my list, have multiple PhDs, but can you give us your credentials? "...nothing statistically impossible about Biden's win"? let me refer you to just one source among scores of others: American Thought Leaders with @JanJekielek @AmThoughtLeader. I've provided about 10 others in recent weeks, all world-renowned specialists.

Here's a typical pathetic challenge to Jovan Pulitzer's expertise, about his ability to digitally examine millions of ballots to scientifically prove if ballots are authentic or fake. He says we need to access the physical and digital ballots and within seconds can determine authenticity. His technology and approach have nothing to do with accessing the actual Dominion or other vendor machines. He's still waiting to access those ballots (which, by law, are owned by the American people for 22 months following the election). Why are the managers keeping the data from us?

Jovan Pulitzer responds to GA Voting systems manager,Gabriel Sterling, for GA Secty. of State Office, Jan 4, 2021 Full report

When you talk of "multiple statistical models predicting Biden victory" those must have come from Biden's basement. A minimum of effort will quickly debunk your false statement. Try it.

As for Mitch McConnell, and Lindsey Graham, they are among the last minute swarms of faint-hearted sunshine soldiers who couldn't take the heat.

One last word about the outrage at the nation's capitol. Hundreds of thousands gathered outside while a few hundred (Antifa-inspired) were actually ushered through the front barriers. They should be severely punished. By the way, evidence of Antifa's presence was found in the feces smeared inside the Capital - DNA would quickly identify the criminals. That's a BLM-Antifa trademark.

Lastly, Art, the ideology you seem to identify with is Marxist, Communist, Socialist -- and profoundly anti-Judeo-Christian. Let's settle for anti-Religion, according to the Founders, the absolute essential foundation of our democratic Republic, and without which our Republic is dissolving.

America was from its beginnings a Christian country - Judeo-Christian by inclusion. Spanish settlers came to St. Augustine, Florida more than 450 years ago, the oldest European settlement, in 1565. Jamestown was settled about 40-years later, the earliest English settlement. In 1604, the first European settlement north of Florida was established by French explorers Pierre de Monts and Samuel de Champlain. So it was that what became America, eventually the United States of America, was sandwiched between the Catholic French in Canada and the Catholic Spanish in St. Agustine, Florida, with Jamestown the oldest Protestant settlement - Plymouth Colony came a little later in September 1620.

Since those difficult early years America has prospered more than any other nation on earth. Blessed with two oceans protecting against foreign invasion before WWII, it also has some of the richest land and industrious people. The greatest blemish in American history was slavery, which was abolished by force during the Civil War, at the cost of 600,000 souls. Slavery exists today in parts of the Middle East, China and elsewhere. Forced labor is a fundamental tenet of Communism.

An essential part of Christian America has always been a democratic-republican form of capitalist government. This has made Americans the freest, most prosperous of countrymen under a solid Constitution - our primary source of law.

But our Founding Fathers agreed from the beginning, to a man, that the heart of this great experiment was religion. Without this requirement the whole thing would fail. Our ingenious Constitution permitted freedom of religion as one of our God-given rights - not merely a privilege. In our time religion has been degraded by foreign influence, namely variants of Communism, an atheistic system which hates God and seeks to replace our Republic. That scheme is working, and our religious values have all but disappeared. This can be clearly seen in the proven fraud which disenfranchised nearly 80-million pro-Trump voters.

I don't intend this to be a geography lesson, but geography is important, it once set us apart from political systems in other places that are not free, which still embrace slavery, such as China. Our downfall began in the 1960s, when the radical left (Democratic Party) preached drugs, abortion on demand, anti-military sentiments, and against traditional American Judeo-Christian culture. Our most deadly national enemies targeted, in particular, the American family. It was encouraged as much by what was not taught as by what was taught in school. Gone were the patriotic Christian truths of my youth, 1940s and '50s, when everyone was proud and thankful to be an American, when it was an acknowledged blessing, brought home by the aftermath of World War II.

In those war years, like today, we faced socialism (National Socialist German Workers' Party, Nazi) and Communism under Stalin's USSR, though only Churchill understood what lay ahead for the "free world" once Hitler was destroyed. Little has changed for the better. I guess that Frenchman was right - "The more things change, the more they stay the same." Americans are constantly lured to find a replacement for God. Power, through money or politics, is what "leaders" want again today. Since Big Tech has a new game to play with our lives (billionaires seeking to be trillionaires) it seems that, once more, religion doesn't stand a chance. Christians know the truth (final victory) but appear to have to undergo the 20th Century all over again to prove it. Evil exists, and we are in constant war with it. The most evil of men want to become short-term gods, gods with notoriously short shelf-lives - but with horrible, fiery special effects for the rest of us. This time they have become perilously close to achieving their fantasy, by allying with communism, socialism, and globalism.

Barack Obama said he would "fundamentally" change America. Joe Biden repeats the threat. Congress, the Supreme Court, Wall Street, Big Tech, Big Social Media, Deep State, Corrupt State Government, conspired to remove President Donald Trump from office. They are all complicit in the disintegration of our beautiful nation. They are guilty of the greatest crime in American history - but none will be punished. That the Joe Biden crime family will succeed to the presidency is nothing short of macabre.

Today, I see only amber waves of thorns. I think God has heard our prayers, and his answer was "No more. Live with what you have created as you can."


My thanks to Pastor Leslie Lanier, Dave Johnson, and Mary Scoles, for their letters. Also, my thanks to FUTA President Tammy Ferguson for her report on in-person instruction. (I strongly, if respectfully, support immediate opening of normal school activities - studies and sports.)


I am just starting on my column, and it's 11:15 p.m. I've spent too much time trying to organize the many links to 2020 election fraud evidence. I confess my fixation on these "elections" for the past year. It's the greatest scandal and national civic injury since the Civil War. It is also the greatest fraudulent election in human history. And, what that war won for us by the deaths of 600,000 souls, (liberty, unity, and justice) this universal scandal of the 2020 election is stealing away. I try to avoid sentimentality, but the means with which this election was stolen leaves me deeply saddened - and angry. Joe Biden does not belong in the White House - he belongs in prison. The US Senate, House of Representatives, and entire judicial system have betrayed their Constitutional oaths of office, i.e. “I, ___, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”

The Founding Fathers worried about "factions", today's political parties. Today, the Democratic Party (faction) has shamelessly betrayed our country through a massive, treasonous conspiracy to unseat a duly elected president by means of criminal fraud. If there were such a thing as an Octogenarian Platoon, I'd be in the first squad with my trusty old M1 to secure a fair election. If Republicans lose in Georgia, they might finally understand that naivety and civility don't work in a knife fight with Democrats.

Bottom line: Joe Biden did not win the 2020 election; it was stolen by a sinister criminal conspiracy. President Donald Trump won this election by an historical landslide. The American governmental system abandoned him; no court would hear the evidence of fraud. As Hosea 8:7 states, "For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind."


As I write, I haven't dared to look at the final tally in the Georgia senatorial run-off election. I value a good night's sleep. But I'll look before leaving the office. I fear another notorious "razor-thin" loss, especially because the same Dominion system was used. How stupid was that?

(Up-date: -- (Checked before leaving the office and discovered that the FIX is in both elections - an extraordinary calamity. Another razor-thin theft.)

Regardless of the winners, the whole structure of my understanding of American national politics and civil society, especially of our law, has completely changed following events since the 2016 election. We are now a different, post Judeo-Christian, atheist nation. Atheistic, Communistic, Socialistic forces (represented by virtually all Media, Big Tech, Big Banks, Billionaire Globalists, Papal Venality, and all of our Communist enemies - especially China), have taken charge. Among the traitorous billionaires endangering our Republic is Mark Zuckerberg, who gave a half-billion dollars to the Communist Left, enough to bribe every Democrat from judge to bag lady (like Stacey Abrams).

Here is evidence of the kind of damage so-called Social Media did to the election process:
"Statistician and Fraud Expert Jay Valentine Weighs In: YouTube just announced that it will remove all videos “alleging that widespread fraud or errors changed the outcome of the 2020 U.S. Presidential election”, uploaded on or after December 9, 2020. This is why most of the US heard nothing of the spectacular Hunter Biden criminal activity in China.

From American Thinker: Google/YouTube is erasing all evidence of election fraud - 12/10/20 We have entered a truly Orwellian world, with Google acting the part of Big Brother.

Both elections are invalid due to wholesale fraud across the board. The old legal dictum, "Fraud vitiates consent" applies here. Voters did not consent to subjecting themselves to a fraudulent process. This is the foundation of legitimate demands for an audit of both election outcomes, including details of proven fraudulent activity.

We now know both elections were tabulated by machines designed to cheat. Both elections were run through machines illegally wired to the internet. Both elections were illegally tabulated in Europe. Many forensic inspections show obvious fraud in the vote spikes, and in the shutdown of ballot counting absent required Republican oversight.

Democrat claims that 50-plus courts rejected the evidence of election and voter fraud are untrue. The fact is that NO COURT WOULD CONDESCEND TO EVEN LOOK AT EVIDENCE. Carefully prepared briefs and complaints were denied a hearing on PROCEDURAL grounds, not substantial. They wouldn't look at the facts presented. Cases were deemed either too early or too late -- in this life-and-death Constitutional election! The courts aided and abetted the fraud!

It's hard for me to write when angry, and this column didn't turn out as planned. The distraction of this Georgia election, which gives the nation over to its enemies, has sort of stopped me in my tracks. So much evil will explode in our country if President Trump and Vice President Pence are unable to stop the steal; unprecedented damage will happen quickly.

As they say in dire combat situations, "They're in the wire!" Time to fix bayonets!
