Jan. 6 Committee spreads anti-Trump lies
GREAT BEND TRIBUNE
 
As bad as the COVID-19 pandemic was, nothing was more devastating to the Trump presidency then the lies that were propagated by an openly anti-Trump media with the active collusion of the administrative state.

It’s deja vu all over again with the January 6th Committee. Hearsay testimony that wouldn’t pass muster in a small claims court, altered texts and emails that go un-rebutted and of course Republican mouthpieces like representatives Elizabeth Cheney and Adam Kinzinger to present the fiction of bipartisanship while the attack on former President Trump is relentless and unchallenged.

If not for Fox news, America would be captivated by the ilk of MSNBC, NBC and other questionable outlets like Gannett, who in my opinion use the term “fact-checking” to stifle effective opinion that runs counter to their prevailing orthodoxy. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson
We are captives of Biden’s agenda
GREAT BEND TRIBUNE
 
The Biden administration was oblivious to the baby formula shortage until it became a political liability. Your babies, like moms with strollers run down in broad daylight or the bleaching bones of illegals in the scorching desert sun are simply collateral damage in their journey forward.

We are in transition to the revolutionary Green New Deal with all that it entails. All other priorities have been rescinded. We are captives in their journey to utopia whether we like it or not.

While Democrats collude with the legacy media and their radical showbiz comrades like Matthew McConaughey performing at the White House, their unyielding assault on the Second Amendment takes a deceptively moderate form.

They become ever more powerful while the rest of us drop a notch on the food chain. 

Unless of course, you are a Marxist founder of Black Lives Matter, in which case you’ve enriched yourself in the revolutionary struggle then abandoned the hood for a multi-million-dollar mansion located in a lily-white neighborhood. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson


Biden induced economic chaos
GREAT BEND TRIBUNE
 
High fuel prices boil down to calculated policy decisions made by the Biden administration to devolve our domestic fossil fuel industry based on debatable science that we are in a climate emergency.

These disastrous policies could be reversed with the stroke of a pen if only Biden wasn’t attached at the hip to the eco-left.

This same ideological ilk told us that they “just follow the science” during the COVID-19 pandemic only to find out how specious their self-serving science was. Fake science” along with “fake news” has become part of the American lexicon.

The Biden administration’s inane energy policies facilitated Vladimir Putin’s ability to invade Ukraine by increasing world dependence on Russian oil as well as driving Russia into Red China’s 
waiting arms, adding a 21st century reality to the arcane 19th century polemic “The yellow peril.”

We’ve gone from Trump era energy dominance to groveling at the feet of other oil producing nations to hypocritically increase their oil production for our benefit.


From Biden’s first day in office the non-Chinese world has been in an energy related state of artificially induced economic chaos. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

NRA helps uphold rights
The Hutchinson News
truth
The NRA is probably the most effective civil rights organization the United States has ever produced.

They have done more to defend the constitutional rights of the average American than any other organization.

It is always difficult to prove a negative, so we will never know for sure how many Americans are alive because they have successfully defended themselves or loved ones because of the efforts of the NRA.

We do know that anyone who truly wants a gun for evil purposes will get one and that a gun in the hands of a citizen can bring the evil actions of another to an end very quickly.

If only a teacher, concert-goer or innocent bystander had been armed, how many people would be alive today? We will never know the answer to that question, but a solid case can be made that more guns in the hands of law-abiding citizens is a proactive deterrent and immediate resolution to gun violence.

In a violent world, laws that depend on the compliance of the individual will never provide the social stability of an armed citizen. Gregory H. Bontrager Hutchinson

Beware the swamp of neo-left degradation
GREAT BEND TRIBUNE
 
Democrat Joe Biden ran on uniting the country and with his unfortunate election proceeded to do just the opposite.

When we object to his radicalism or question the gross incompetence of his administration you can almost imagine the echo of Hillary Clinton and her “basket of deplorables” mumble out of Uncle Joe’s faltering lips.

Using dark money and nebulous undefined terms like equity, climate emergency or racism, the Biden administration attacks his critics as undemocratic while he leads us into the murky swamp of neo-left degradation.

Parents don’t want their children subservient to teachers’ unions or indoctrinated by agenda-driven activists masquerading as teachers.

From the height of Trump era security, hundreds of thousands of unvetted “who knows what” now illegally cross our border in a calculated attempt by democrats to subvert our democracy and are then relocated into our communities without consent.

Biden and his mega rich donors ensconce themselves behind walls and fences for safety but deny the same privilege for our vulnerable nation. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

Under woke socialists, we spiral downward
GREAT BEND TRIBUNE
 
When candidate Ronald Reagan asked President Jimmy Carter in a 1980 presidential debate “Are you better off today than you were four years ago?” the answer was absolutely not. Now the question is are you better off after five months of the Biden administration compared to any president in recent history?

In my opinion, judging by the price of gasoline, natural gas, electricity, border security, inflation, unemployment or any other measure you choose, this is the most rapid under-reported downward spiral I have ever seen.

Evidently the American people haven’t learned that by populating our government with serial liars and influence peddlers like Joe Biden and his malignant ilk is a fast track to disaster.

While the previous administration’s brilliantly honed foreign policy is being dismantled and our schools are firmly in the grasp of radical teachers unions, remember we could have been on the path to a more prosperous, equitable union instead of this headlong plunge toward the foul stench of a woke socialist sewer.

Gender is binary
GREAT BEND TRIBUNE
 
Transgenderism is a political construct, not a biological fact. All the hormone treatments, surgeries and wishful thinking don’t change the fact that a transgender person is doing an imitation of what they think the opposite sex should be.

People have a right to pursue their own lives, not to hold society hostage to their particular psychological anomalies or engage in the indoctrination of school children. For the State to compel citizens to participate in transgender dogma is as Orwellian as it gets.

Real women have a right to compete against real women, not transgender men who don’t have the slightest problem engaging in unfair competition or invading women’s restrooms with a sense of self entitlement and sometimes ulterior motives.

As heartbreaking for the trans community as it may be, fanciful supposition, cosmetics and highly profitable medical special effects will never change the fact that biological truth remains immutable. Gregory BontragerHutchinson

No more freeloaders in out midst
The Topeka Capital-Journal
 
We need to develop a way to expedite the deportation of large numbers of foreign nationals who are illegally entering or maintaining residence in the U.S. The American taxpayer should not be expected to foot the bill for people who have no moral or legal right to be here.

Sanctuary cities that defy the will of the American people should be dealt with swiftly and, if need be, aggressively. The anchor baby loophole is being ruthlessly exploited by foreign nationals and no longer serves the purpose for which it was originally intended. This antiquated provision in the law needs to be eliminated.

We need to be selective in the people we grant citizenship to. They must reflect our religious, moral and constitutional values. If they don’t, they have no business being granted citizenship. We are not citizens of the world, but of the United States of America. Our obligation is to our own welfare first, not the rest of the world. The days of accepting freeloaders into our midst must come to an end.

President Donald J. Trump: Still the Greatest
President of the Modern Era!
TRUMP SUCCESSES
The Wichita Eagle 
 
When Donald Trump was sworn in as president, I don’t remember thousands of Americans losing high paying jobs with the stroke of a pen.

I do remember President Trump’s pledge to put America first and the creation of tens of thousands of new jobs, including the recovery of thousands of manufacturing jobs that Obama said were gone for good. I also remember that 63 House Democrats boycotted his inauguration, Madonna saying she wanted to “blow up the White House” and Democrats plotting his impeachment before he was even inaugurated.

What Trump gave us was unparalleled economic growth, energy independence, stable borders and the reassertion of our sovereignty over leach nations like the People’s Republic of China. We also got an amoral Democratic Party that lied, connived and disseminated at every opportunity.

What the Biden administration has delivered is thousands of high-wage Americans forcibly propelled into the unemployment line in pursuit of the existential fairy tales of the left. The same lofty promises and failed policies are being propagated by essentially the same pack of losers that gave us the malaise of the Obama years and are being replicated in the Biden administration.

Get ready for four years of voodoo
GREAT BEND TRIBUNE

During the Trump years we underwent a barrage of manufactured crisis; scurrilous disinformation was disseminated by the likes of Don LamonChris CuomoJoe Scarborough and a hundred other media creeps who slither beneath the rocks of fabrication journalism.

They, along with the ChineseMexican cartelsteachers unionsHollywood liberals and replacement American border crashers find the ethically flexible Joe Biden refreshing.

On the other hand Mexico and Canada, along with the rest of the world, even those who wouldn’t realize it at first, grew quite fond of Trump. In spite of his often obnoxious personality, his coherent policies worked spectacularly.

Now, we must endure four years of voodoo that will be passed off as science. We are required to pretend boys with penises can be girls; the Keystone Pipeline is environmentally harmful and benign children’s classics like Dr. Seuss must be banned!

Who is telling us this malarkey and, more important, why is anyone paying attention to them?

What can we expect from Biden’s race-based pick for the Supreme Court? Someone with the gravitas of Condoleezza Rice? Or a chest thumping radical in the vein of Maxine Waters, a woman barely capable of forming a sentient thought.

Biden’s leadership team is a reflection of himself – ineffective and malicious. Their greatest collective achievement is the most avoidable domestic and international decline the United States has ever faced!

As I speak a premeditated tsunami of fentanyl laced illegals is flooding across our southern border, resulting in a Biden administration induced slaughter by overdose. Not to mention a blue state crime wave created by creepy-left Soros-backed Democrats without a whimper from Joe.

When will the malfeasant Joe Biden and his Democrats put law-abiding Americans first?

As Russian troops mass on the Ukrainian border and Red China flies their grubby jackboots over Taiwanese air space, the dire consequences of a Biden election become manifest.

Sandmann and Rittenhouse show maturity
GREAT BEND TRIBUNE
 
Nickoles Sandmann and Kyle Rittenhouse are two American teenagers who fate propelled into circumstances beyond their years, yet both acted with a maturity and restraint under intense pressure that highly trained adults have often mishandled.

A culture that can produce two young men with this combination of innate courage and instinctive moral clarity has got to be doing something right!

In a contest between good and evil these ordinary teenagers overcame the forces of chaos, in Rittenhouse’s case the specter of death at the hands of a craven mob only to be persecuted by a corrupt political/media elite that has come to represent the nihilism of the neo-American left.

A left whose ethical void has been filled by Jacobins like Representatives Ilhan Omar, Eric Swalwell, Adam Schiff and to the shame of the nation President Joe Biden.

In a world where deception is transformed into truth by masquerading in a swirl of media-manufactured disinformation, these two innocent young men overcame a pack of frothing jackals with an unpretentious courage that resides at the core of all American greatness. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

Closing in on a year of the Biden administration has anyone seen anything that’s been “built back better?” Or is this the punch line of a joke?

In a few short months America has gone from the pinnacle under Trump to laughingstock of the World à la Joe Biden and his smug disinterested administration.

These people don’t care about the price of gas or milk or keeping warm in winter because they don’t have to, it’s below their station to worry about such trivial things. Tilting at windmills is their priority, no matter how much it costs the rest of us.

If Biden showed the same outrage for the plight of working America or fixed income elderly as he does fake border incidents or paying third world grifters hundreds of thousands in taxpayer dollars maybe his poll numbers wouldn’t be plunging like the proverbial rock.

Instead of siccing the FBI on justifiably upset parents for the capital offense of yelling at propagandists who have infiltrated their local school boards, do something critical and stop the surging crime wavein our cities or the slaughter of a generation of Americans to fentanyl trafficking.

Instead, the once-vaunted FBI is being morphed into the KGB lite by politicized operatives like Attorney General Merrick Garland, whose allegiance seems to be servicing the needs of the democratic elite and the intimidation of law-abiding citizens who have legitimate grievances.

American parents have a right to be outraged at Trojan horse school curriculums and a right to express that outrage in profound terms. This country wasn't founded by sheep, but by the greatest order of human beings to set foot on earth and it's time we act accordingly.

Capitol Police shooting of
Ashli Babbitt

During the capital riot on Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol police officer Michael Byrd in effect prescribed the death penalty for protester Ashli Babbittand carried out the sentence with a single shot from his Glock pistol.

The unarmed Babbitt’s death deserving offence was climbing through a broken window.

While media stooges and sinister political forces try to gaslight the Capitol riot into the Reichstag fire, the decorated Air Force veteran crossed the river Styx for what amounted to trespassing.

Babbitt was different from other high profile police shootings; she had a long history of esteemed patriotic service to her country. Yet there will be no statues erected or city squares named after her.

Ashli Babbitt had no business being in the Capitol building on January 6th, but her biggest mistake was not realizing that the “summer of love” rules didn’t apply to her or thousands of other disaffected Trump supporters. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

Because of pandering to his base by the brilliant Joe Biden, the U.S./Mexican border has begun the descent from Trump-era stability into Obama-era calamity.

With Trump, it was back across the border you go, with Biden its catch and release into the heartland of America using the highly problematic honor system to appear in court at a later date.

From Trump border order, into the nirvana of chaos so loved by the pathologically irrational American progressive movement, it’s California here we come!

As usual, it will be the proletariat who bears the brunt of this masochism inflicted on us by the ever so virtuous intelligentsia of the Democratic Party along with their Hollywood/billionaire donor-accomplices, who love moralizing to us 'lost souls' as they cynically pursue their own political and economic self-interest no matter what the cost to the rest of us may be.

Then these law breakers will be scattered like autumn leavesas surreptitiously as possible throughout the United States.

We will be lied to shamelessly at every convenient opportunity as a token number are sent back to Haiti.

It may be time to invoke the “Insurrection Act” of 1807 to secure the border

With the ideological gridlock consuming the legislative and judicial branches of government and there de-facto collaboration in the invasion of the United States from Central America.

It may be time to invoke the “Insurrection Act” of 1807 to secure the border and begin removal of the invaders from our country.

According to the Daily Caller published on May 16, 2019, the insurrection act was used in 1992 by George Bush Senior to quell the Los Angeles riots and by President Eisenhower in 1957 to enforce school desegregation.

It is clear this invasion is organized by drug cartels and political activists and that normal enforcement agencies and local governments are overwhelmed.

Even critics of the “Insurrection Act” concede that under current circumstances precedent falls within the lawful scope of the president’s authority.

Ammunition ban is gun control effort
The Hutchinson News
 
The Biden administration is banning the importation of Russian manufactured ammunition ostensibly as reciprocity for the poisoning of Russian dissident Aleksey Navalny.

The real intent of this under-reported executive action is mean-spirited harassment of the law-abiding American shooting public who have used this inexpensive ammunition for years.

The gun control efforts of the Democrats have met with little success legislatively. So they enforce their will on an unwilling public through administrative gimmicks that will make an already severe ammunition shortage worse.

When the people reject Democratic gun control policy electively, they concentrate on shoving it down your throat administratively.

American’s only desire is to be free from the heavy hand of power-mongers, who are attempting to parse every aspect of our lives, all done under the color of law. The American people are being viewed as if they are inmates in a maximum security cellhouse.

Instead of facing the crisis he created, Biden has constructed a “Potemkin” border where Mexican cartels aren’t really engaging in rampant human trafficking or drug peddling and unvetted foreign nationals aren’t being surreptitiously scattered throughout the United States. That’s all right-wing disinformation.

The Topeka Capital-Journal
 
While the United States slumbers, an insidious assault is being perpetrated against our nation by the People's Republic of China. As reported by Peter Brookes of the Heritage Foundation (https://www.heritage.org/arms-control/event/virtual-event-behind-the-great-wall-secrecy-chinas-nuclear-buildup), the United States has become a virtual supermarket of unabated theft of military and commercial technology.

With our preoccupation with the war on terror, this looming superpower - more powerful and deadly than the former Soviet Union - is aggressively seeking to supplant the United States as the preeminent military and economic power on the globe.

Following a policy of appeasement, the Obama administration has abysmally failed to protect the American people from the Chinese. Why design for yourself when you can steal the best. And steal they do, from nuclear warheads to toaster ovens. According to Brooks, the PRC has 3,500 front companies in the U.S. whose sole purpose is the theft of our technology.

While Red China plays military and economic hardball, the Obama administration remains oblivious, exposing America to what may be the greatest threat to our national survival in modern history.

在美国沉睡之际,中华人民共和国正在对我们的国家进行阴险的攻击。据传统基金会的 Peter Brookes (https://www.heritage.org/arms-control/event/virtual-event-behind-the-great-wall-secrecy-chinas-nuclear-buildup) 报道,美国已经成为军事和商业技术盗窃有增无减的虚拟超市。 由于我们全神贯注于反恐战争,这个迫在眉睫的超级大国——比前苏联更强大、更致命——正在积极寻求取代美国成为全球卓越的军事和经济强国。 在奉行绥靖政策的情况下奥巴马政府在保护美国人民免受中国人的侵害方面做得非常失败。当您可以窃取最好的时,为什么要为自己设计。他们会偷窃,从核弹头到烤面包机。根据布鲁克斯的说法,中国在美国有 3,500 家幌子公司,其唯一目的是窃取我们的技术。 虽然红色中国在军事和经济上采取强硬态度,但奥巴马政府仍然无动于衷,这让美国面临现代历史上对我们国家生存可能构成的最大威胁。 格雷戈里·邦特拉格,哈钦森

Democrat sanctuary cities don’t justprovide sanctuary
for illegal aliens, butfor enemy spies.
 by Daniel Greenfield

The Topeka Capital-Journal
 
Potential presidential candidate Donald Trump has finally had the nerve to use the C word, you know, that 800-pound gorilla in the room that everyone seems to ignore. China steals our technologywith impunity and has implanted malware in our power grid.

The Chinese have a specially designed ballistic missile just waiting to take out our carrier battle groups. They manipulate their currency to take unfair advantage of us, and we owe them tons of money. But I guess we don't have anything to worry about do we? They are our friends, right?. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson
这是朋友?
The Topeka Capital-Journal | 2011 年 4 月 28 日
 
潜在的总统候选人唐纳德特朗普终于有勇气使用C字,你知道,房间里那只800磅重的大猩猩似乎被所有人忽视了。 中国窃取我们的技术而逍遥法外,并在我们的电网中植入恶意软件。中国有一种专门设计的弹道导弹,正等着干掉我们的航母战斗群。 他们操纵货币以不公平地利用我们,我们欠他们很多钱。 但我想我们没有什么可担心的,不是吗? 他们是我们的朋友,对吧格雷戈里·邦特拉格哈钦森

Do unto Biden as Dems did unto Trump
GREAT BEND TRIBUNE
 
I have heard the White House has a deep basement, so president-elect Joe Biden should feel right at home. Unlike President Trump, who isn’t afraid of anything, Biden prefers to remain cloistered, free from the threat of a tough question – not that he should worry so long as he has the complicity of the not-so-free Press.

With the election of Biden, the American People have snatched defeat from the jaws of victory by electing a malleable chameleon, replacing the most capable, transparent president of modern history.

We should all pledge to give President Biden the same level of cooperation that the Democrats along with their media acolytes gave President Trump in the preceding four years; after all, turnabout is fair play. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

Furthering agendas
Hutchinson News 
 
A nation as big as the U.S. is always going to have a police incident that one group or another feels was unjustified. The only recourse is to follow the recommendations of an independent investigation.

A lawful society can never allow innocent citizens to be victimized or society at large to be held hostage to the tantrums of an aggrieved minority.

There is no justification for innocent people being set upon by arsonists, looters or organized agitators who use these uninvestigated incidents to further their own anger, political agenda or common thievery while masquerading behind the word protester.

If these criminals were charged for the felonies they committed instead of an overnighter in the local jail you would see a decline in this kind of behavior.

When President Trump began prosecution of vandals for the destruction of national monuments it's amazing how quickly it stopped. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

The Topeka Capital-Journal
 
Every day some commentator tells us what we already know, that we are going to make it through this virus. My concern is will we recover our civil liberties from heavy-handed predominantly leftist governorswho have used this overreaction to abuse our constitutional liberties.

When I see a mother harassed for arranging a play date for her child in Wisconsin, a man in cuffs because he dared walk in a public parkor public beaches closed by California’s governor-thug who has an unnatural fondness for illegal aliens, I realize why we have a Second Amendment.

The groundwork to tyranny is being laid like it always is, in the name of the people. Ask the shop owners who are being driven out of business what tyranny looks like. Look at the statistics for states that didn’t lockdown in contrast to the ones that did and the pandemic modeling of alleged experts that proved to be so wrong.

What is taking place is a power grab by leftist authoritarians who, in my opinion, place greater value on the Chinese paradigm than that of our founders and are potentially more virulent than the virus itself. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

Hysterics from talking heads
Hutchinson News
 
History has demonstrated that blue-state Democrats consistently do the wrong thing at the worst possible time. Like sending thousands of elderly citizens to their deaths in coronavirus-infected nursing homes or turning our cities over to looters, anarchists, and common street thugs. Then with the complicity of the media, they shift blame rather than accept responsibility for the destruction they are responsible for.

On the other hand; red-states with the support of Donald Trump tend to be citizen-friendly, prosperous and under control, while blue-states are in debt, with high taxation, and a declining population.

It’s too bad the Blues under the faux leadership of Joe Biden don’t spend as much time telling the truth as they do making up lies for years of catastrophic failure. The only chance the radical democrats have in 2020 is to keep Uncle Joe under wraps with a massive infusion of Saul Alinsky and George Orwell with the hysterics provided by the talking heads at CNN. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

False equivalency 
The Hutchinson News
 
Comparing white supremacist organizations with antifa and BLM is a false equivalency the left loves to conflate.

White supremacy hasn’t been a force in the U.S. for generations except in the rabble rousing of race baiters like Al Sharpton and Democratic activists.

On the other hand antifa and BLM have been burning our cities and victimizing innocent citizens of all races. It is a lie to compare them and the left knows this, they are trying to divert attention from their own subversion by drawing a false equivalency between the two. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

Protect history, statues
The Topeka Capital-Journal
 
The police of my childhood would have never allowed a mob of vandals to destroy public property. They would have given an order to disperse and then moved in decisively, using the age-old concept of minimum necessary force.

The statues they deface belong to everyone, yet a minority of malcontents is allowed to obliterate our history with impunity. It is time to put a stop to this madness.

If our political leadership is too craven to defend the images of our by-gone past then it is time to dispense with them and the rabble whose feet they kiss. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

Soleimani met well-deserved fate
The Hutchinson News
 
Early death is rarely bestowed on its most deserving subjects. Like the  Carrbrothers who have been shielded on death row by the  Kansas Supreme Court for years.

Once in awhile fate bestows the brass ring of mechanized death on a deserving subject like Qasem Soleimani the head of Iran’s elite  Quds Force.

With the life and limb of hundreds of  American soldiers and  thousands of other human beings lost, Soleimani met his end confidently on a dark highway near Bagdad.

Thanks to the  determination of President Trump to protect Americans and a well-placed Hellfire missile He was reduced to the same fate he had sentenced many others, too, remains burned beyond visual recognition. Soleimani  reaped what he had sown and the world is a better place!

Let’s hope we never become second best at the use of this technology or have leaders who hesitate to use this powerful tool decisively against our enemies! Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

Step into sunshine
The Topeka Capital-Journal
 
Joe Biden is nearing a half-century in Washington DC and can anyone name a single redeeming reason to make him president?

A vote for Trump is a step back into the sunshine.

Biden is an empty vessel who will say anything to garner political relevance, like the claim of being arrested in South Africaor fabricated war stories, not to mention a lifetime of plagiarism that started in his college days and extended throughout his political career. Biden has proven he will say anything.

Uncle Joe happily recites the script of his radical handlers and is barely able to maintain stamina for a news conference before speaking gibberish.

With the collapse of the objective media, approach negative reporting about President Trump with skepticism and realize that positive news is being suppressed by a national media that has become spin-central for Joe Biden and the Democratic Party. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson


Lives of innocent Americans should be considered in illegal immigration debate
The Topeka Capital-Journal 
 
The first time I became aware of the devastating effects of criminal activity perpetrated against American citizens by illegal aliens came shortly after I graduated from the Emergency Medical Technicianprogram at Wichita State University.

I was working as a volunteer with the Sedgwick County EMS reserve when the unit I was stationed with responded to a multi-car accident. When we arrived at the scene several automobiles where overturned and the smell of gasoline permeated the air.

Wichita fire department personnel worked skillfully to stabilize the scene and extract an elderly couple who had been pinned in their vehicle. I participated in CPR on one of the victims but unfortunately both citizens died as a result of the injury’s they sustained.

I found out later the accident was caused by an illegal alien who had stolen a car and then attempted to evade the police in a high speed chase.

I never learned the fate of the perpetrator of this crime but I often wonder how many times a day innocent Americans are victimized at the hands of illegals who have no right to be in the United States.

I wish our president and supporters of the sanctuary city concept cared as much about the lives of innocent Americans as they do increasing their voter base. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson
MURDER OF
BAMBI LARSON

 
Gov. Kelly welcomes refugees to Kansas!

Just what Kansas needs to follow in the footsteps of German,
Franceand Sweden! We need to make sure Kelly is a one-term governor and have an exit strategy for these refugees. Preferably back to where they came from or the neighborhood Gov. Kelly lives in. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

Walls work
Kansas City Star 
 
A physical barrier along our southern border is not an engineering or logistical challenge. Compared with the economic cost of illegal immigrantion, a wall is cost-effective.

Other than meeting a need for short-term workers in the agriculture industry, those immigrants provide little economic value and undercut American lower-class workers.

Border walls have worked for generations. Hadrian’s Wall across Britain served its purpose. Israel’s West Bank barrier and Hungary’s border barrier have proved nearly 100 percent successful.

Have no doubt that an invasion of the United States is under way by foreign nationals. Claims made by Democrats that walls don’t work are simply short sighted political disinformation. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

Biden an embarrassment
Salina Journal
 
How embarrassing to watch former Vice President Joe Biden grovel at the inaptly named Biden Courage Awards in New York on March 26th. Then on Feb. 17, Biden told a European audience in Munich, Germany, that America is an embarrassment.

This is the same Biden who withdrew from the 1988 Presidential race after plagiarizing a speech by British Labor leader Neil Kinnock.

Has there ever been a creepier assortment of Democrats running for president? They can’t shed their scales fast enough to keep pace with their competitive pandering.

Stop pushing faith-based fairy tales like the Green new deal and encouraging Central American migrants flooding our border.

How many more Americans will be victimized by this new crop of illegals while Democrats and corporate opportunists like the Koch brothers refuse to work with Trump?

Try representing America for a change instead of pandering to the Robespierre/Cortez wing of the Democratic Party. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

https://www.kansascity.com/opinion/letters-to-the-editor/article228741904.html

Topeka Capital-Journal  
 
Democratic front runner Joe Biden seems to be following the Clinton strategy of limiting public contact. Let controlled exposure, name recognition and the illusion of moral fiber carry him to the Democratic nomination.

Blending into the weeds is a Darwinian survival skill Biden has mastered with scary proficiency. Biden’s team is attempting to project a “woke” image for an old-time politician who carries a ton of baggage.

His only remarkable feature is a willingness to jettison decades-old convictions on the turn of a dime.

From minute to minute, who is the real Joe Biden? That has yet to be determined by the demands of political expediency. Like the portrait of Dorian Gray, the Biden team knows the less of the real Joe people see the greater his odds for political survival become. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

Orchestrated attacks
SALINA JOURNAL 
 
The Russian collusion and Ukrainian hoax were separated by a pause in order to give deep-state operatives time to orchestrate another attack on the Trump administration.

Conclusive proof of a crime is always guaranteed yet remains just beyond grasp. This is essential because no crime exists and the illusion of wrongdoing is always more powerful when left to the imagination of the target audience.

The same scoundrels who guaranteed us irrefutable proof of Trump and Russian collusion are typical of how corrosive eight years of exposure to the corrupt practices of Barack Obama and his fellow progressives have been on the Democratic Party. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

Believing the lie
The Hutchinson News   
 
Provoked by professional agitators, the Covington school students stood up to a hail of obscenity and intimidation that would have withered most adults.

With a moral compass received from a superior education, they validated the teachers and schools they represented, in contrast to the provocateurs who rushed to judgment before learning the facts.

Like the Jussie Smollett hoax, its evident many celebrities and media outlets didn’t care about the truth, as long as it supported a race-baiting narrative.

Even now many would prefer to believe the lie. The Covington students are a credit to the nation while exposing their critics for the hucksters they are.

Hate crimes exist, but many high profile cases have proven to be stunts perpetrated by fakers for political or personal gain.

Is it too much to ask that our media do their job and withhold reporting until the facts have been established? Apparently it is, because they keep reporting unsubstantiated “news” on a variety of subjects and keep getting it wrong. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

The Hutchinson News 
 
Representative Cortez and her “Squad” of malcontents should suggest to the rabble trespassing the United States if they have a problem with taxpayer-funded detention centers or the agents protecting our border they can go home. They’re not being forced to stay.

Maybe on Ms. Cortez’s home planet, things are different, but people who are abused by border guards or forced to drink toilet water don’t stick around.

Left-wing disinformation is no substitute for the fact that Democrats are responsible for the mess on the border, not the agents shouldering the burden.

Former acting ICE director Tom Homan summed it up best, 90% of illegals can’t find a way to court, but they don’t have a problem finding the welfare office.

It’s not taxpayer responsibility to fund miscreant border crashers or support their offspring. This is the looting of the American taxpayer with the full support of the Democratic Party. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

Alexandria Ocasio- Cortez
The Hutchinson News 
 
According to the new darling of the left freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the earth only has 12 years to go before we are doomed. It’s best not to ask Ms. Cortez too many questions about the things she knows; you’re likely to bump into a shallow reef.

According to Cortez, climate change is like fighting World War II. Is invading House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s congressional office to protest climate change really the same as storming the beaches of Normandy?

Cortez is a perfect example of the fluff who graduates from indoctrination centers like Boston University. From border security to health care she is incapable of providing anything other than a debunked cliché. Representative Cortez makes an ideal spokesperson for her fellow uninformed comrades on the left - Viva La Venezuela.
Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

TIME FOR THE INSURRECTION ACT
The Wichita Eagle 
 
With the ideological gridlock consuming the legislative and judicial branches of government and their de facto collaboration in the invasion of the United States from Central America, it may be time to invoke the “Insurrection Act” of 1807 to secure the border and begin removal of the invaders from our country.

The act was used in 1992 by President George H.W. Bush to quell the Los Angeles riots and by President Eisenhower in 1957 to enforce school desegregation. Even critics of the “Insurrection Act” concede that under current circumstances precedent falls within the lawful scope of the president’s authority.

It’s time to protect the American people as the mechanisms of orderly government break down under the weight of organized criminal activity along our southern border. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

TRANSGENDER ATHLETES
The Wichita Eagle 
 
It is wrong for men who self-identify as women to compete in women’s athletics. No matter how they feel, they are physically men and political correctness will not change that fact.

It’s heartbreaking to see reports of women who have striven in athletics pushed aside for a false concept and then criticized if they complain.

No matter how you feel, you should compete with the gender you were born into and then resume your private life as you choose. Subjecting women athletes to compete against biological men is unfair and if permitted to continue may ultimately destroy women’s athletics.

Transgender wishful thinking will never change biology or the facts of life. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

De-evolution of western Europe
The Hutchinson News 
 
German Chancellor Angela Merkel is the second biggest mistake Germany has made since the fall of the Weimar Republic.

Like Barack Obama, she is a virulent globalist, and has a religious belief in “man-made climate change.” This belief has caused the average German household to pay three times more in energy costs.

Merkel has led Germany from ethnic cohesion into a blood-soaked reign of terror by flooding the country with unassimilable migrants.

Like the United States, this open immigration is at the expense of the working class, who are supposed to shut up and pay the bill. Their plight is of little interest to Merkel or her ilk – if you don’t like it get out.

Police armed with sub-machine guns must patrol once safe streets and concrete barricades are needed for fear of being run-down by suicide martyrs.

As the body count rises, Merkel, French President Emmanuel Macron and British Prime Minister Theresa May have opened the floodgate to culturally disaffected human beings, resulting in the de-evolution of western European society. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

Cultural diversity doesn't make us
stronger, better
SALINNA JOURNAL 
 
The notion that cultural diversity necessarily makes us stronger or better is simply not true. In general the more homogeneous a society the better things tend to work.

Like socialism, cultural diversity is a talking point of the progressive left. If you want proof take a look at what this failed concept has done to Western Europe.

By contrast Japan and Eastern Europe have taken the best of Western culture and discarded the liberal baggage to produce more stable citizen friendly societies.

They also have shown the value of physical barriers to stop the mass movement of uninvited people. Japan is protected by an ocean and Eastern Europe by border fencing. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

Are we really supposed to feel
sorry for them
The Topeka Capital-Journal
 
We waste too much time and money pandering to gate crashers along our southern border.

These poor, unfortunate lawbreakers have been prepped by human traffickers to game the system and use their own children (or someone else’s) as pawns hoping for a free pass.

When these freeloaders lose custody of their children, are we really supposed to feel sorry for them?

If your first act entering the United States is one of lawlessness and you have no hesitation using innocent children as an accomplice, should you have custody of these children to begin with? Are you the kind of people we what as future citizens? Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

Arguments against wall are wrong
Topeka Capital-Journal 
 
A physical barrier along our Southern border is neither an engineering or logistical challenge. Claims that walls don’t work or too expensive is biased political disinformation.

According to USA Today “There has been an explosion in building border walls since World War II” from 7 to 77 in 2018.

Israeli, Hungarian and United States border barriers have proven to be nearly 100 percent effective.

Compared to the economic drain of illegal immigrants and the economic threat they pose to low-wage American workers, a wall would be cost-effective protection.

Other than a need for short-term seasonal workers, Mexican and Central American migrants provide little economic value to the United States.

Encouraged openly by Democrats and secretly by corporate Republicans, an activist-fueled invasion of the United States is underway, for what these two odd ends consider to be in their own political and economic self-interest. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

SALINNA JOURNAL 
 
We’ve seen this poor migrant act play out before in Europe.
According to the media, these migrants are poor hapless woman and children seeking a better life.

The reality is 80 to 90 percent are young fighting age men who tactically stage woman and children at the front of the column to bear the brunt of the tear-gas.

As with the European experience, most of them will become wards of the state either dependent on welfare or in prison.

If you want your schools and neighborhoods turned into crime-ridden sewers, by all means, let them in.

Never fear because even if you don’t an Activist court will force you into submission.

Resistance is futile in the Globalist order; you will be assimilated while the morally superior remain comfortably secure in gated communities protected by guards who carry guns, protecting them from the same third-world trash that we are supposed to joyfully rub elbows with.

Muslim migrants just don’t behave
like our Mennonites
SALINNA JOURNAL 
 
If Muslim migrants behaved like Mennonites no one would have a problem with them. In fact, they would probably be sought-after.

The problem is they don’t. They reflect the rigid intolerance of the societies they come from. They have little regard for human life, including their own.

Never has such a religious culture believed itself to be so superior yet demonstrated the misogynistic brutishness of a third-world street gang.

The question Western societies must ask themselves: Is Muslim immigration worth the debasement of their own women and children in order to placate a subset of human beings whose ultimate objective is the destruction of every social vestige of the host country?

We also must remember that these people fled lands of competing tyrants and they were the losers.

Like most barbarians, they don’t seek to change their ways, but to ply their brutality on those they consider weaker than themselves.

Is victimhood at the hands of cultural thugs the legacy you wish to leave your children? Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

No to elites
Kansas City Star
 
As citizens we must never allow our judgment to become subordinate to people just because they have a Ph.D. or “your honor” attached to their names. These elitists have given us open borders, forced busing, the Paris climate accord, gun control and partial-birth abortion.

Somewhere along the way, they have surrendered reality for a virtual world ruled by intellectual duplicity and an absolute faith in their own supremacy.

The price we will pay for blindly following these people is the loss of our souls the way they have lost their own.

Resistance to this cabal is a necessity if we are to maintain our sovereignty as a free and independent people.

All you need to do is look around the world and see that if we surrender to these so-called elite we will become as morally bankrupt as they are.
Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

Topeka Capital-Jounal 
 
If you want to look into a dark pit, a place where truth fears to tread you need to go no further then the progressive wing of the Democratic Party.

This is the party of swamp creatures like Nancy Pelosi and Maxine Waters, a place where anything goes in the pursuit of absolute power. Character assassination, ambush tactics and intimidation have become a substitute for rational political debate.

With more resemblance to “brownshirts” the youth-wing of these Soros-funded basement dwellers resort to the stalking and bullying of anyone who stands in their way and then pretend they are engaging in “freedom of speech.” Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

The Kansan
 
I suggest if we want a successful barrier erected along our Southern border with Mexico that we consider subcontracting with Hungary or Israel.

Both of these countries have proven they know how to stop aggressive migrants from entering their sovereign territory. The days of dealing with invasion-migration tactics by massed foreigners must come to an end.

The use of tear gas, pepper spray or water cannon may be an unpleasant necessity when dealing with virulent border crashers. But the lesson will be learned very quickly.

The U.S. has learned the hard way we cannot be the world’s policeman. We must also learn that we cannot be the repository for every person or group of people who have a real or imagined reason for fleeing their country of origin.

Perhaps these people should learn they must stand and fight for their own homes instead of shamelessly sneaking or crashing across our border.Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

Clinton contemptuous to Americans
The Wichita Eagle
 
As much as we try to move beyond Hillary Clinton, she just won't let us.

With every excuse she makes for her unthinkable defeat at the hands of Donald Trump, she shows the depth of her contempt for the American people.

Like the Hollywood elite and tenured faculty who adore her, she can't fathom that the common folk don't recognize their superiority to the rest of us.

Clinton exudes every derogatory clich'a of contempt the left has to offer for America.

Like a chameleon, the new breed of Democrat is learning from Clintons mistakes. They masquerade behind the values of Middle America while fitting comfortably in sheeps clothing waiting to reveal their true nature until they have consolidated power.

Whether by altering the demographics of the voter base with illegal immigrants, or the creation of a welfare dependent population, the suppression of any political thought other than their own is the ultimate objective. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

Clinton running incognito campaign
Topeka Capital-Journal
 
This is the first time I have seen a presidential candidate run a campaign incognito — from behind a pair of sunglasses and appearing in carefully staged media events. Hillary Clinton acts more like she’s being profiled on “America’s Most Wanted” than running for president of the United States.

A candidate usually wants as much media exposure as possible. But in Clinton’s case, the more you see the less appealing she becomes. Instead of speaking directly to the people, she dispatches such acolytes as John Podesta and Lanny Davis to convince the proletariat she is as pure as the driven snow.

Clinton has calculated she has the Democratic Party’s nomination wrapped up, so why upset the applecart answering questions about influence pedaling, big money deals with foreign governments and deleted emails.

Sen. Rand Paul summed it up best: Hillary needs two planes, one for herself and another for all that baggage.

If you want to see the way a Clinton presidency will operate, look at the way she is running her campaign and then draw your own conclusions. Is this a snapshot of a Clinton presidency? GREGORY H. BONTRAGER

Clinton shouldn't be next president
Topeka Capital-Journal
 
The stars of the Democratic Party shine so bright don’t they? After eight years of the Obama administration’s “transparency,” are we ready for more shenanigans from the Clinton clan? With single-minded determination, Hillary Clinton engages in questionable conduct then takes cover behind an ever-so-willing mainstream media.

The only thing predictable about Clinton are the fables she concocts to cover the ridiculously avoidable behavior she engages in. Like the perfectly innocent taking of money from foreign governments and all those emails she deleted from her personal server. We are obligated to take Clinton’s word that everything she does is just rosy.

After all, the Clintons have never done anything questionable have they?

Lanny Davis and James Carville bristle with indignation at the thought that anyone would question the veracity of the anointed heir apparent to the White House.

Sinister right-wing forces must be hard at work forcing Clinton to do all those dumb things. Yes that’s Just what we need, a few more years of sneaky duplicitous behavior from the president of the United States. GREGORY BONTRAGER, Hutchinson

Hillary's spin machine going full tilt
Topeka Capital Journal
 
The Hillary Clinton spin machine is gearing up to full speed. The facts of a life dedicated to ruthless self-promotion have now become an inconvenient liability in Clinton's compulsive upstream swim to what she considers her birthright — the occupation of the White House.

It's not Clinton's concern for the welfare of the American people that matters but an ego bordering on narcissism and the fact Bubba wants to walk the halls of the people's house again in search of unlimited access to the television camera.

The only tether binding the former first lady to the current administration is her shameless ability to distort the truth without breaking stride. What difference does it make indeed when you're in pursuit of the biggest entitlement of your life, the presidency of the United States. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

The Hutchinson News 
 
The media hounding President Donald Trump are the same ideological malcontents who gave Barrack Obama a pass for eight wasted years of American history.

If you like welfare, food stamps or unchecked borders, Obama was your man, but if you work for a living or own a business, President Trump is on your side.

The working class finally has a friend in the White House. The American worker will no longer be the target of runaway bureaucracies like the Environmental Protection Agency or rogue tax collectors in the IRS who were weaponized by Democrats to suppress political opposition.

Whether they sit on the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, city councils of sanctuary cities or the Hollywood elite, it is time to reject this neo-fascist sect that has seized control of the Democratic Party.

This new breed of Democrat follows a path of violent intolerance toward others and unlimited ambition for power, no matter how unethical the end result may be. The Democratic Party of today would be rejected by liberal icons like John F. Kennedy.

It is clear that a fifth column of Obama holdovers has embedded itself in the bureaucracy of the United States government and is illegally working to subvert the will of the American people and undermine the presidency of Trump. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

WITCH HUNT
Wichita Eagle 
 
When special counsel (former FBI director) Robert Mueller finds that Trump did nothing wrong, how long will it take before the Maxine Waters wing of the Democratic Party accuses Mueller of being a tool of Vladimir Putin, too?

The nation is objectively better off from Trump’s first day in office, unless you listen to the media, who have parsed the words of “unnamed sources” to create the illusion of wrongdoing.

Is this what the Salem witch trials looked like in the 17th century? Maybe we should reinstate “spectral evidence,” because without it, Democrats haven’t got a shred of proof that Trump did anything illegal.

When this witch hunt is over, the only thing that will be evident is a concerted disinformation campaign against Trump by the mainstream media and the left wing of the Democratic Party. Another media manufactured crisis will be looming as soon as this one ends.

Liberal nations letting citizens become terror prey
The Hutchinson News 
 
The European continent has been thrown into chaos by hordes of uninvited Muslim immigrants who are disproportionately comprised of young men who have abandoned their own women and children to seek safety for themselves. They show contempt for the indigenous population and have a psychopathic sense of self-entitlement.

Everywhere these so-called immigrants have been permitted to nest, crime rates have skyrocketed and civil chaos has followed. In countries like SwedenGermany and France, women and children can no longer walk down once-safe streets for fear of being accosted by these violent sociopaths. Peaceful neighborhoods have become hunting grounds for gangs of predatory refugees.

Instead of protecting their citizens from these barbarians, the liberal governments of Europe and the United States are allowing the brutalization of their own populations at the politically correct altar of multiculturalism. In the masochistic liberal mindset, the defense of your own citizens from predation by foreign invaders has become an act of intolerance.

Can anyone answer the question why other Muslim countries refuse to accept these refugees who share their own faith? Take a look at Europe and the answer becomes obvious. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

The downfall of Sweden
Hutchinson News
 
A long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away there was a beautiful land filled with beautiful people. These people shone like the Sun and were at peace with mankind. From the midst of this magnificent people a sinister group who called themselves "Progressives" rose to power.

With lies that were twisted to sound like the truth, these Progressives opened the gates to the peaceful kingdom so that predators could roam freely among the lambs.

Women and children could no longer walk hand-in-hand down once-safe streets, and darkness fell over a place that had been full of the Sun. This once-peaceful land, which was betrayed by the Progressives, is called Sweden, and thanks to them, it is now the rape capital of Europe.

Islam is not peaceful
The Kansan 
 
Islam has demonstrated that it is not a religion of peace or tolerance. While most religions of the world have matured large segments of Islam have receded into a barbaric dark age where any crime, from mass murder to pedophilia can be justified by yelling the phrase Allahu akbar.

Coexistence is a cover for the ultimate subjugation of other cultures whose only choice will be to convert or be driven to extinction. Assimilation has never been an objective of Islam.

Not all Muslims are the same, but a substantial segment of the Muslim population are jihadist or jihadi sympathizers which means a small number of these zealots are capable of disrupting the entire fabric of western civilization.

Are we going to stand up for our values or are we going to surrender to a culture of religious zealots who consider the murder of infidels to be a free ticket to heaven? Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

Multiculturalism and Crime
Ottawa Herald
 
From chaos comes order, except if you live in EnglandGermanyFrance or a host of other Western European countries who have fallen victim to the progressive myth that by populating your country with semi-civilized refugees with whom you have nothing in common is a good idea.

This utopian fallacy has driven peaceful Europe to the brink of chaos. Like most progressive disinformation, multiculturalism is a product of self-hating indoctrination based on a variation of white guilt.

PolandHungaryRomania, and other Eastern bloc countries like most Muslim countries have restricted the influx of predominantly Muslim refugees. The result being healthy ethnic cohesion and centuries-old cultural stability, minus the terrorism and high crime rates fostered by the virulent multiculturalism of Western Europe.

The sad fact is that mass immigration over the past several decades has led to social and economic disintegration of the host countries as it has for states like California. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

No standing down
The Wichita Eagle
 
Every time a police officer fails to protect a peaceful protester from the mob or stands idly by and watches public property being vandalized it becomes a greater threat to the constitution then the mob itself.

Around the world, U.S. soldiers have fought heroically against evil only to be betrayed at home by cowardly civil authorities who wither in the face of organized violence by groups like Antifa.

When the Berkley, Calif., police fail to protect peaceful protesters from “10-on-1” violence, I wonder what master they serve because it is not the Constitution of the United States.

These civil servants dishonor the men and woman who have paid the ultimate price by their failure to safeguard constitutionally protected speech.

Have we become a third-world country that passively allows masked thugs to rule the streets of our cities and strike at the core values of our democracy? Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

Rejecting the radicals of the left
The Kansan
 
When the progressives of the Democratic party sound the charge they discovered they are on the political battlefield alone.

The proletariat is not interested in trans-gender bathrooms or safe spaces for pampered children. They what immigration reform and an end to sanctuary cities.

The motto of the working class is America for Americans, not illegal aliens. Multiculturalism has proven to be a disaster everywhere it has spread.

The radicals of the “left” who couldn’t get elected dog catcher have infiltrated the higher education system and have more in common with the fascist of the 1930′s then the founders of our constitution.

America has rejected them and their anti-American platitudes. They can’t give there sugar coated poison away, so they have turned to deception and violence as a substitute for being rejected by the American voter. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

ID TO VOTE
The Wichita Eagle 
 
Photo identification is a ubiquitous part of modern life. The thought that you have to produce a valid ID when you cash a check is acceptable, but somehow sinister to cast a vote is absurd. Why would any honest person think otherwise?

Perhaps it's because certain groups believe they benefit from votes that may not be legitimate.

The U.S. has traditionally been caught flat footed when dealing with its own vulnerabilities. Our voting process is antiquated and susceptible to fraud. Photo identification is a necessary step in maintaining the integrity of the democratic process.

There is selective outrage over alleged Russian interference in our elections, but none over undocumented immigrants who routinely cast votes in our elections. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

Be careful what you ask for
The Great Bend Tribune 
 
Democrats may get what they don’t want, a real investigation into the Russian conspiracy that reaches to the highest levels of the previous administration. To be fair there may be more smoke then fire, but the preponderance of that uranium tainted smoke is dense and the thousands of Russian dollars that flowed to the Clintons in one form or another is real.

High profile Democratic pundits have begun to back away from the Trump/Russian election interference angle as the investigation by special counsel Mueller appears to be winding down with only one or two minnows on the hook for unrelated matters. As all sane people knew Trump was right, fake news.

Fasten your seat-belts Democrats it may be a bumpy night as the investigation deepens into the sordid connection between Hillary Clinton and the malignant incompetence of the Obama administration visa vie our arch enemy Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

Trump on our side
The Wichita Eagle 
 
If you like welfare, food stamps or unchecked borders, Obama is the man for you. But if you work for a living or own your own business, Trump is on your side. Despite media hype, the age of the working man has arrived, as personified by Trump. No more apologies will be accepted from America-hating elitists and the clueless children they foster on college campuses.

The American worker will no longer be held hostage to insane regulations by runaway bureaucracies such as the Environmental Protection Agency or rogue tax collectors in the IRS who have been weaponized by Democrats to suppress political opposition.

The Democratic Party cares more about the rights of illegal aliens than your children being able to walk safely down the streets of their own neighborhoods.

Whether they sit on the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals or the city councils of sanctuary cities, it is time to push aside these apostate Americans and take our country back. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

NRA HAS HAD POSITIVE EFFECT
The Wichita Eagle 
 
The NRA is probably the most effective civil rights organization the United States has ever produced.

They have done more to defend the constitutional rights of the average American than any other organization.

It is always difficult to prove a negative, so we will never know for sure how many Americans are alive because they have successfully defended themselves or loved ones because of the efforts of the NRA.

We do know that anyone who truly wants a gun for evil purposes will get one and that a gun in the hands of a citizen can bring the evil actions of another to an end very quickly.

If only a teacher, concert-goer or innocent bystander had been armed, how many people would be alive today? We will never know the answer to that question, but a solid case can be made that more guns in the hands of law-abiding citizens is a proactive deterrent and immediate resolution to gun violence.

In a violent world, laws that depend on the compliance of the individual will never provide the social stability of an armed citizen. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

Don’t like it here? You can leave
The Hutchinson News 
 
The “old white men” that created the United States and Europe must have done something right because minority groups from around the world risk their lives to get to the country’s they created.

I haven’t seen any Mexicans or Syrians storming the beaches of Cuba or China. If “Black Lives Matter” thinks the United States is so bad, try the paradise of Mozambique or Angola and see how that works out for you.

European people have done more than any other group to bring equality, prosperity and stability to the turbulent world of humanity. That is why the world wants to be in the countries that they created.

Anytime you think you have it so bad, remember you are always free to find someplace better. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

Freedom of speech can be a
double-edged sword
The Hutchinson News 
 
Colin Kaepernick is entitled to express his feelings, and I am free to boycott the team he plays for. People who make their living performing before the public, whether they be athletes or movie stars, need to be aware that the way they express themselves may potentially devastate their careers. Freedom of expression is very often a double-edged sword. If you offend your audience, don't be surprised if they no longer consume the product you produce. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

Playing 'Games'
The Hutchinson News 
 
I wonder why "The Hunger Games" star Jennifer Lawrence waited until after she made $52 million before she discovered how much she disliked Christians and Republicans.

Someone at Lions Gate Entertainment Corp. should suggest to Lawrence that she could always return that portion of the money if she finds it morally objectionable. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

Supporting Trump
The Kansan 
 
I don’t think Trump said anything that bad, a moratorium on Muslim immigration is the prudent thing to do till we get control of this mess Obama has created. This is Obama’s fault not Trumps. Trump is not afraid to protect us from these terrorists which is more than Obama or Hillary will do.

I bet the Europeans wish they had never allowed the Muslims to settle in Europe in the first place, they have caused nothing but trouble. They will do the same thing here. We need a president who will put Americans first. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

The Hutchinson News 
 
The fact is walling off our southern border with Mexico would be a relatively minor engineering feat. In areas where barriers have been erected, they have been very effective.

Walls are not a panacea, but physical security is always a good starting point. The most vocal opponents of a wall on the border are sanctuary city types who think an open border will help secure their re-election by pandering to their voter base. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

The Kansan
 
There has been an ongoing conspiracy by Obama and the Democrats to alter the population demographics of the United States. This effort has intensified during the last year of his administration.

Since the immigrant and refugee populations tend to vote democratic this is part of a long-term strategy to increase the democratic voter base

That’s what the refusal to enforce immigration laws and sanctuary cities are all about, job security for a bunch of liberal democrats. So a large criminal element has been willfully set free to roam the streets of America and terrorists disguised as refugees are allowed to infiltrate the homeland for the benefit of career politicians.

As usual hard-working American citizens are left to pay the price in blood and treasure for these invaders. Does anyone doubt for one second that if these foreigners were breeding future Republicans instead of Democrats, that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton would have had the border sealed tighter then a bass drum?

The Zebra Murders:
by Clark Howard

The Hutchinson News 
 
When Texas district attorney Mike McLelland and Kaufman County, Texas, prosecutor Mark Hasse were brazenly gunned down earlier this year, a chill colder than jagged steel tore through the heart of the American law enforcement community.

It was widely believed these demonic murders were retaliation for the recent convictions of upper echelon gang members and that the killings bore a striking similarity to Mexican drug cartel assassinations.

A disgraced Kaufman County magistrate appears to have been the perpetrator of the murders. The frightening thing is that, with the porous southern border, these assassinations could easily have been carried out by Mexican murder squads that could walk across the border in broad daylight.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation has reported Mexican cartels are currently setting up shop in American cities, controlling wholesale drug distribution across the nation.

The question is, when will these Mexican Narco terrorists, many of whom were trained by U.S. special forces, bring their grisly brand of violence to the main streets of America?

And will we deal with this threat in the same corrupt spineless wayas the Mexican government? Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

Topeka Capital-Jounal 
 
The Keystone pipeline was one of the most well-studied, environmentally safe projects in modern history. It was not blocked by President Obama because of environmental concerns. It was simply another casualty in a long list of cynical, vote-getting ploys to appease Obama’s radical base of support, the American people be damned.

It is clear our Chicago politician considers his re-election more important than American jobs or energy independence. Better to dump billions into Solyndra and a host of other feel-good politically correct scams.

This administration has gone beyond corrupt or incompetent. It is placing the survival of the United States in jeopardy. The decline of our country pivots around one point, the failed policies of the Obama administration.

The Chinese will laugh while they fuel their economy with Canadian oil that should have been flowing into the heart of American industry. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

Fox News holds administration
accountable
Topeka Capital-Jounal
 
When we watch the media’s coverage of President Obama, are we viewing professional journalism or another episode of American Idol? The tough, relentless questioning that follows congressional Republicans vanishes when the media is covering the Democratic/Obama left.

From Benghazi to the “fiscal cliff,” the Obama regime has been given a softball pass by NBC, ABC and CBS. These once great news organizations have become grotesque caricatures as they shill for the “most transparent administration in history.”

The only light in this dark room has been provided by Fox News. On critical issues, Fox is routinely excluded from White house briefings. According to White House adviser David Axelrod, “Fox is not a real news organization.” Could it be that Fox tells the American people the uncomfortable truth instead of the administration spin?

As twilight descends on objective Journalism in America, the only firewall between the American people and the complete subjugation of the press by the progressive/Obama left has been Fox News. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

We have used Predator drones effectively to eradicate anti-American terrorists throughout the world. Maybe it’s time to target Mexican drug cartels. Give the Mexican government an ultimatum: Take care of business or the United States will. Let drug cartel members look to the uncertain skies with dread. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

The Hutchinson News
 
Godfather of the progressive movement, billionaire George Soros of The Open Society Institute is silently trying to destabilize the American democracy.

Hiding behind well-financed front organizations, this Judas, who as a youth during World War II assisted in confiscating property of fellow Jews (as revealed in a 1998 "60 Minutes" interview), hides his nefarious financial empire offshore to avoid the scrutiny of U.S. financial regulators.

He will use any means necessary to reshape the world in his own twisted, left-wing image.

With billions of dollars and insidious fifth-column maneuverings, Soros is attempting to encircle independent media outlets and replace the truth with his progressive "one world" dogma. What happens to those who stray from Soros' path? Ask Juan Williams, formerly of National Public Radio.

Using mouthpieces like the Huffington Post, Soros is relentlessly moving toward the destruction of our core American values.

Unfortunately, Mr. Soros has run into a problem; fearlessly, Glenn Beck of Fox News is exposing this elitist socialist in his insidious plot to reshape our nation and the world in his own distorted, godless image.

If Mr. Soros is successful in his endeavor, hopefully we will receive better treatment than he gave his fellow Hungarian Jews 65 years ago. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

Wichita Eagle
 
As a lifelong Republican, I can only express my disappointment in the Republican Party. From president to dogcatcher, the Republican Party has failed its constituency. What a bunch "we the people" placed in power! Of all the problems wrought by my party of choice, the biggest disappointment is Sen. Sam Brownback. I remember shaking hands with the incumbent senator in front of Wal-Mart years ago, and the elation I felt with his election.

Now, all I see is a politician pandering to an increasing population of illegal aliens in the hope of garnishing votes at the expense and welfare of his fellow citizens. This is a man who took his Washington phones off line during a vote on "immigration reform" to thwart the outcry of fellow Kansans to vote against what amounted to amnesty for people who entered our great nation through illegal means.

In my view, Brownback has placed the status and welfare of foreign nationals above his own country men and women and has begun embracing positions of groups that were once referred to as the "loony left." We see in Brownback a disturbing thing that happens to many politicians who have held office too long: They forget they hold office to serve their constituents, not their own re-election. To paraphrase Al Gore, it's time for him to go. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

Harsh judgment
The Hutchison News 
 
How many citizens of Reno County have found themselves before our esteemed 27th judicial district? How many of you have had one of our 'guardians of justice' place bald-faced lies about your supposed courtroom conduct in public record.

How many of you have read sworn court transcripts listing you as present in court, when you were home in bed? I have. All of our jurists are of the highest character, or are they? I guess the question is have enough citizens of Reno County seen the dark side of our legal/judicial system as it works on an everyday basis? If you haven't, you may be in for a surprise.

Here is good news. We don't need a revolution or revolt to change this system. The founders of our nation have given us all the tools we need to effect change. Go to the polls and vote. With a little involvement we can make our community a better place to live. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson
