In his interview a few weeks ago with Tucker, Vladimir Putin made an interesting comment about America. You have to paraphrase. He said he couldn’t understand how the American system can work when 50 states can do their own thing. Funny he should mention that because State sovereignty was the chief intention of the Founders in creating the U.S Constitution. The 13 original States were granted all powers except those expressly enumerated as belonging to the Federal Government. In reality, Putin’s remark was not so funny since it doesn’t reflect what’s true — which is that America’s States now are subservient puppets to Federal authority. Not so funny because in 2024, the Federal Government, at best, operates as a not so soft dictatorship. America’s gradual slide into authoritarianism changed abruptly to a nose-dive with the election of B.H. Obama. His ascendancy was the first time in American history that the People handed the reins to an anti-American — twice. You admit to having contempt for those who voted for him once — but for those who doubled down, you wish you knew the secret to making Voodoo dolls. But, to be fair, America’s descent into dictatorship, and eventually socialism, began modestly with the appointment of chief justice John Marshall in 1801 who reigned for 34 years allowing him time to do all sorts of mischief. Essentially, emulating God, he commanded that The Constitution was not to be taken at face value, but interpreted, giving the Federal Government powers not enumerated by arguably the most enlightened document in human history. In 1801, and now in 2024, you see what happens when the ordinary meddles with the extraordinary. What happens is this. Your country is indebted to the tune of 34 trillion clams. Millions of the People, idiots all, think judgment day will not come and they and anyone they love will not suffer. The U.S. Justice Department (DOJ, FBI, CIA, etc.) is corrupt to the core, operating what amounts to a crime syndicate. Millions of the People, idiots all, think this is conspiracy talk because this is America; and if that were true, somebody would do something about it. Who? Your Federal Authority has control of America’s Health Care, Education, Energy, Labor, Transportation, Banking, Commerce; and more recently, Mainstream Media. And that control means it has authority over you personally. Don’t doubt it for a minute. Millions of the People, idiots all, say there is no way thousands of media workers can be manipulated to behave in an evil way. If that were true, somebody would do something about it. Who? And there’s no way millions of the People could be brainwashed by the medical community; yet millions marched their little children, and some offered up their infants to receive the experimental Covid jab. Idiots all. And now the millions of MAGA People believe that next year Donald John Trump will save the day and America will once again be the “shining city on a hill.” Sorry to disabuse you of that expectation. Won’t happen, Matilda. The best Trump, or any other GOP candidate, could do is apply band-aids to the lacerations left behind by JB. The Border. Energy. Economy. Jobs. Basically attempt to undo the damage. But the 34 trillion? He may increase it as he did in 2016-20. Decrease the size and scope of Federal authority? Nope. Disband the CIA and start over? Nope. The FBI? Nope. Terminate thousands of Fed Deep State bureaucrats as Vivek recommended? Nope. Eliminate DOE? Nope. Nobody wants to hear the death knell, but it will ring louder and louder until the States of America decide to take back power as authorized by the Constitution of the United States, and until the Federal Government has only the limited jurisdiction allowed to it. Here’s the deal. The American people shouldn’t have to worry about some socialist asshole being elected president — as long as the States, in Putin’s words, are empowered to “do their own thing,” under the Law. The People shouldn’t have to worry about a Congress that is worse than the worst thief on the planet, free to commit fraud and spend your country into bankruptcy. Theft is a crime. Criminals should be imprisoned. Ten months from now, DT might be president elect — if he’s not taken out by the court system, or taken out by violence or fraud. But remember, the reason he lives day after day under the axe is because he remains a threat to important political people and their vested ($) interests — and even key players in his own Party don’t want him and never have. Had the GOP establishment united behind him during his term of office, and in ’20, he would today be a two-term president, relaxing at Mar-a-Lago; and Sleepy Joe would be making appearances somewhere looking for adolescent girls to nuzzle. Think of America. What if Biden had not been president? Lives and businesses lost by the millions. Think about it. Somebody should do something about it. Who?

Note: Nineteen States have approved the Convention of States Resolution to amend The Constitution — for the expressed purpose of placing limits on Federal Authority. This is the only remedy to save the Republic and its dedication to individual freedom.  Ed.




It’s Black history month again. Naturally. Black history is an annual observance in America, recognized primarily by Media and by every other organization that merits media attention — notably governments. These statements are not complaints. Many races, many ethnic people, celebrate themselves annually. Most likely, however, few of these ceremonies, if any, extend for an entire month. Be assured that statement is not a complaint. If you have a complaint, it’s about the designation Black. You could be wrong, but you don’t know of any other people who designate their nationality by skin color. American Indians generally don’t refer to themselves as Red Americans, do they? You have yet to hear people of Japanese lineage refer to themselves as Yellow Americans. Worldwide, both white-skinned and black-skinned people define themselves as French, German, British, Bulgarian — pick a country, any country. It’s no skin off your nose, but common sense tells you that black-skinned residents of America realistically might consider calling themselves Nigerian, Ethiopian, Kenyan, Somalian, Jamaican, Haitian, Ghanaian — in other words, proudly consider identifying with their ancestry. Or, if born in America, choose to be American, as one celebrated (black) politician chooses to do, refusing to hyphenate himself. In your opinion, losing “black” would be one big step for Man, one giant leap for America — an infinitely more difficult leap than the Apollo 11 mission and Neil Armstrong’s stunning step into history. Could 48 million Black people come together to put aside differences? Would 48 million drop their resentment? Would they give up accusations of systemic racism? Put aside that fantasy, Matilda. Put aside the impossible. Because being Black is vital. Making and keeping Black an issue is absolutely essential. It’s not African American History Month, is it? It’s not African Lives Matter. It’s not Kenya vs. Ireland. No, it’s Black vs White. It’s Black skin that justifies racism and the demand for restitution, retribution and retaliation. For many, possibly a majority, Black skin is a world-class victim’s excuse — the key to expecting and accepting what amounts to statutory, guiltless dependency. For many who have Black skin, freedom is not the goal. A free lunch is. KAPOW! That allegation should incite a proper racist uproar. Social scientists, historians, other academics and run of the mill intellectuals will trash this supposition as ignorant, baseless, juvenile bigotry. Most African Americans will argue that no white dude can perceive the Black experience, much less criticize it. True enough, to be sure. In fact, you gladly argue that many hyphenated Americans with black skin suffer economic deprivation. Many of them face disrespect and rejection. But so do other Americans. Economically, these other Americans also live a “hand-to-mouth” existence. Socially, they also are stigmatized and shunned — and their skin happens to be — my goodness — white. You should know, remembering your early years on the wrong side of the tracks.  But that statement is no complaint. If you have a complaint, it’s about Black vs. White, because it won’t work. Ever. There is undeniable proof it won’t work. As never before, millions of Black skins now live in stately homes and occupy board rooms, government posts, sport arenas, entertainment, small business and dozens of professions. But no amount of economic and social justice progress has quelled the cries of racism. If anything, the cries are even more strident. Why? Because Black skin is not about social justice or fairness or honor or respect. It’s about keeping racism alive and profiting from it. But who does it profit? It profits those who always profit.  Black demagogue leaders.  BLM and 20 other Black-led nonprofits. Politicians who push Marxism. Big Media. Big business. Big advertisers. At the end of a very long day, identifying as Black is a self-imposed prison. Someday, maybe a century from now, Americans with black skin will finally decide it’s not the skin — it’s what’s under the skin, what’s between the ears and what’s in the heart. And maybe then decide that Black is just a color. Not a racist crutch.


The Big Lie.

This essay won’t change anything. But it needs writing on the chance it stimulates one mind.

Some Americans who have lived long enough will agree that America is sick. She was sick for many decades before Barak Obama came along and fed Her arsenic, and before J. Biden stumbled his way into the WH to stimulate inflation, human trafficking and the distribution of fentanyl. But, thankfully, America’s damaged immune system still has potency. And, thankfully, healing isn’t a bit complicated. Difficult perhaps. Even painful. But simple. You make Her well by deciding to make Her well. By deciding to change the things that make Her sick. By deciding to adopt treatment that restores Her health. America can’t cure everything simultaneously. But you can help make a start by exposing the most visible sickness — The Big Lie. That Lie says Black America is in the grip of systemic racism. That Lie is perpetrated, not by ordinary Black Americans, but by leaders. These leaders of all stripes reside in government, at universities, in college and professional sport and in major corporations — coalesced by a mendacious media. The Lie is marketed under the banners of Black Lives Matter, Equal Rights, Cancel Culture, DEI, CRT and a number of other political identities. The Lie aims squarely at White American males. The Lie demands Social Justice. The Lie points its accusing finger. At whom, Matilda? Just who are the White enemies of Black America? Just who obstructs Social Justice? Which Congressman or Senator or President or Supreme Court Justice or political candidate will stand on the mountain and name the individual names, the groups, the mobs, the leaders of White America who are systemically racist? Which College Professor will publish a paper that exposes by name the White Americans who scorn Black Americans? Which Black or White Head Coach or Athlete will stand in the middle of an arena and unmask the White racist parents, school administrators, team owners and fans? When will corporate execs who embrace WOKE ideology point accusing fingers at the Most Wanted Racists? For Pete’s sake, call out the White bastards.

Just who are the enemies of Black America?

The last time you looked, you didn’t see a White mob burn down a city because a Black thug murdered a White person. You haven’t heard one White American demand that DEI must be implemented for every college or professional sport — to demand that all team rosters must be at least 50% White. The last time you looked, stadiums are filled with White fans who cheer Black athletes. On hundreds of occasions, majority White audiences endorse Black American candidates who strangely embody America’s values expressed in The Constitution.

Just who are the enemies of Black America?

You are not a statistician. But it could make sense to use the tried and true Process of Elimination. First, rule out women of any race. They are a minority that has been on the equality warpath for years; and so identify with other minorities who suffer alleged discrimination. Excluding them eliminates 170+MM —  half the country.  You have to exclude  Black American males. That’s about 21 MM.  The Educational System at all levels represents millions of people who push the goals of Social Justice. Boomer II, Generation X & Y represent millions of Americans whose ages are sympathetic with racial equity. The medical communities, entertainment communities and ethnic minorities are populated by majorities who support Black America and must be ruled out. The Depression Era cohort and WWII cohort, 20+MM strong,  plus White male retirees are dropping like flies — they are in no position to be actively racist. Plus, 22% of the population is under 17 years of age.

Just who are the enemies of Black America?

The combination of all females, Black, Hispanic and Asian men, miscellaneous ethnic groups, the dying generations and the kids come to to just about everyone, although online sites claim there are at least 40MM healthy, White adult males raising racist hell in America.  By contrast, your recent in-depth study of this population clearly proves that nearly all but a handful have long since abandoned any animosity toward Black Americans. This conclusion is absolutely confirmed by witnessing Black and White Americans appearing happily together in TV advertising and programming. In no way can redneck workers, white collar workers, cops, wealthy philanthropists, Bill Gates, Elon Musk, business owners, billionaires, brokers, contractors, Republican Governors and Preachers be considered threats to the advancement of Black America.

Just who are the enemies of Black America?

Which leaves you to confess that you and a few diehard racist friends and Donald Trump are incomprehensibly responsible for creating nothing less than racist havoc throughout America. But everything must come to an end. The members of your tiny racist cell have promised to keep KKK robes locked in cedar chests at the far corners of their attics. As for Donald, be might want to appear on The View and sweet talk Whoopi.

Happily, this expert analysis is reason for optimism. White male racists have all but disappeared. No need to round them up to join the Jan 6 crowd of Whiteys locked away in maximum security prisons. After all, somebody has to work the farms,  factories and highways. Somebody has to generate electricity, repair machines, build homes and unstop toilets. Leave it to former racists.

Meanwhile, you must move on to other illnesses that threaten America’s health. The Southern border seems to need immediate attention. You will address that illness soon.

And God willing,  the remedies won’t be rooted in systemic racism.
