THE CORRUPTION OF BARACK OBAMA
The national media are flabbergasted that Americans won’t consent to President Trump’s removal from office. How can so many of his compatriots be indicted and so many governments bureaucrats condemn his behavior without giving them what they desire: self-assurance that they are “on the right side of history”? If they ever wish to understand, the critical starting point in their education is not the current presidency, but the last one. Although there are numerous ways to describe the present divide in America, one of the simpler is thus: those Americans who take Barack Obama at his word that his presidency was historically “scandal free” and those Americans who see the unrelenting stream of Deep State attempts to take down President Trump as a continuing coup and the natural extension of an unethical, criminal, and at times unconstitutional Obama presidency.
For those of us in the latter camp, Barack Obama presided over a corrupt administration and used his historic election as the first non-white American president as a get-out-of-jail-free card to abuse his power while silencing his critics. Whatboutery is frowned upon now that President Trump is in office, but if President Trump had done a tiny percentage of what Obama orchestrated, he actually would be in federal prison. Imagine what would have happened if President Trump had done the following:
If President Trump had done all this and everything else Obama pulled off, well, then the American media might finally see how luminous the federal government’s corruption over these many years truly has been. Instead, not only have they rebuffed Obama’s critics as mere racists, but they flood their editorials and airwaves with the commentary of the very actors who took part in his crimes. Never before have we seen intelligence chiefs and justice department officials so quickly run to television studios to demean themselves as propagandists intent on protecting the last president by taking down the present one.
AN OPINION FROM THE DEPLORABLE INFIDEL
The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) have filed for bankruptcy due to the numerous lawsuits resulting from sexual assaults on young scouts. This was inevitable after BSA was forced to install pedophiles as scout masters. The far-left could not tolerate an organization with values such as love of God, love of family, and love of country influencing the youth of this nation. It had to be destroyed. Now, they have succeeded.
A SIMPLE TRUTH FOR TODAY
Mike Bloomberg is just an American George Soros, who wants to destroy the Constitution.
I applaud and celebrate our Pike County Board of Commissioners on their recent unanimous decision to move forward on making Pike County a Second Amendment Sanctuary County. That is the best news I have heard in a long time.
I could toss in a bunch of Jabberwocky and wish you a frabjous day as we chase each other down the rabbit holes of life. My preference is simplicity and bottom lines. While some would say, “A feathered creature clasped in the manual members is equal in value to a brace in the bosky growth” my summary would be, “A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.”
I am sure you remember old episodes of The Andy Griffith Show. In that series, Barney Fife had an often used comment for problem solving. Nip it in the bud! I could not have said it better myself, Barney.
Rest assured, our BOC will hear and read grumblings from the other side of this issue. I wonder what their argument will be? The BOC will be accused of wasting time on problems that do not exist, while ignoring existential crisis like, let me just take a wild guess, potholes and insufficient internet access. I must have psychic powers.
Just remember, no problem existed…..until it did. Once upon a time, there was only ONE illegal immigrant. A stitch in time, saves nine. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. A card laid is a card played, etc.
If only China had used a little forethought and discontinued those delicacies of eating rats and bats….the Coronavirus would not be a threat to the world.
Good Job, Pike County BOC for moving ahead to make Pike County a Second Amendment Sanctuary County. So many people in Virginia wish someone had been there to guard their Second Amendment Rights. It was not a problem, until it was!
Move ahead, BOC…You are nipping it in the bud.

Explanation: On February 18, as civil twilight began in northern New Mexico skies, the International Space Station, a waning crescent Moon, and planet Mars for a moment shared this well-planned single field of view. From the photographer’s location the sky had just begun to grow light, but the space station orbiting 400 kilometers above the Earth was already bathed in the morning sunlight. At 6:25am local time it took less than a second to cross in front of the lunar disk moving right to left in the composited successive frames. At the time, Mars itself had already emerged from behind the Moon following its much anticipated lunar occultation. The yellowish glow of the Red Planet is still in the frame at the upper right, beyond the Moon’s dark edge.
