Sandmann and Rittenhouse
show maturity

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



The Wichita Eagle / DEC 16, 2021
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.

A wise man once said, “You know them by their works” and we’ve come to know the works of Joe Biden and his incompetent duplicitous administration all too well. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

Redirect the FBI
The Hutchinson News / Nov 5, 2021
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 wave in 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.

Parents standing up for their children against this fifth column of virtue signaling misanthropes is a virtue not a threat and represents a counter to the bold display of Biden regime speech suppression tactics.

There will be no justice in America until the
killer of Ashli Babbitt gets the same treatment
as Derek Chauvin
Same rules must apply to everyone
The Great Bend Tribune | Oct 26, 2021
During the capital riot on Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol police officer Michael Byrd in effect prescribed the death penalty for protester Ashli Babbitt and 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.

Team Biden Won’t Deport Illegal Immigrants Who Committed Murders, Sex Offenses!
From order comes Biden’s chaos

Flights carrying illegal
immigrants now landing
in Pennsylvania:

By Emily Crane

Business is booming if you’re a Fentanyl manufacturer, human trafficker or looking to hawk the latest American military equipment abandoned by the stunning incompetence of Joseph R. Biden’s precipitous Afghanistan withdrawal.

Not to mention the thousands of American citizens and NATO allies who were callously left to fend for themselves at the hands of the brutal Taliban. NATO member Prime Minister Janez Jansa said on Aug. 16 this is the “Greatest defeat for NATO in history.”

From his first day in office, America and the world have discovered the hard way that Biden’s governance can be summed up succinctly with the phrase, “from order comes chaos.” Everything this man and his regime touch seems to spiral into the abyss.

In my view, American citizens, third-world migrantsAfghan interpreters and our NATO partners’ only value is to serve the needs of Joe Biden and his Democratic base in callus pursuit of their own radical agenda.

Pathologically irrational
The Hutchinson News | Feb 24, 2021
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.

"Why don't you do your job
and get this border secure. And until
you do that,I don't want to hear lip about COVID from you,"

Don’t leave the southern border wide open
The Great Bend Tribune / Oct 5, 2021
The crisis deepens as an estimated 60,000 Haitian welfare recipients approach our southern border en route from South and Central America. Many of whom had already established residency in these same countries.

What will our fearless leader Joe Biden do to protect America from this invasion in all but name only? If history is an indicator of the past, they will not be required to receive a COVID-19 vaccination while millions of American citizens are under a mandate to do so (What makes them so special?).

Then these law breakers will be scattered like autumn leaves as 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. We will also hear bold statements of our humanitarian virtue as American citizens in border communities and throughout the nation will be expected to pay the price with our health-care system, schools and tax dollars to support these transnational grifters.

All to what end?

Biden White House’s lies a matter of life and death: Devine

Policies threaten our Constitution
The Great Bend Tribune | Jul 29, 2021
As America’s ethnic and cultural identity is being torn asunder by Joe Biden’s immigration criminality and mask mandates are being reimposed on many Americans, coronavirus infected illegal’s are being negligently shipped throughout the United States. Who will stand up for citizens born here and that came legally?

The people who built this country, fought the wars, pay the taxes and patrol the mean streets in police uniforms are being propelled into second class status by philosophical degenerates who have an absolute belief in their own supremacy. They twist our children with elitist lies like ‘critical race theory’ and obliterate high paying jobs in the name of hogwash called ‘global climate change’.

While sitting in gated communities with taxpayer funded security protecting their own backsides, they try to destroy the second amendment to the Constitution. A constitution whose only value to them is a punch line in the malignant propaganda they spew.

Anatomy of the White House lie on the border agent who ‘struck’ migrants

The Wichita Eagle / Feb. 18, 2021
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, electricityborder 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 populating our government with serial liars and influence peddlers like Joe Biden and 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.

Develop our own energy resources
Topeka Capital-Journal - Sept 20, 2012
The United States sits on untapped oil reserves estimated up to 2.3 trillion barrels, three times the reserves of OPEC. We are also the world’s largest producer of natural gas and coal.

So why do we spend billions importing petroleum from hostile powers and enriching our enemies when we are literally the energy capital of the world? This energy can be obtained safely but we allow misguided politicians and eco-radicals to block our path to energy independence and the revitalization of our economy.

In the meantime, we sit on an untapped gold mine that could free us of debt from China and dependence on Middle East principalities that hate us. We should be reaping the reward of our own natural resources.
Energy independence by 2020 is an easily obtainable goal. The alternative is bondage to foreign powers that gloat at our misfortune.

The presidential election this November will be decisive in determining if the United States remains a superpower or fades into the obscurity of history.


The Wichita Eagle - Feb 18, 2021
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.

Ammunition ban is gun control effort
The Hutchinson News / Sept. 12, 2021
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.

Never let the American people get in the way of the dictatorial urges of the Democratic Party.

Resist the power-mongering sycophants
The Great Bend Tribune /Aug 12, 2021
What a shame to see Barack Obama and his cadre of celebrity sycophants, and politicians like Rashida Tlaib (to name a few) frolic maskless at parties and crowded public events while these same hypocrites will excoriate the nameless faceless proletariat for exercising exactly the same freedom.

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.

The spirit of King George III resides at the highest levels of American government and is just as feckless and power-mad now as he was then.

At some point it may be necessary for the proles to show that resistance is not futile, and if need be direct noncompliance with the King and his minions may be necessary.

Trump: Biden's withdrawal is the greatest embarrassment in US history

Get ready for four years of voodoo
The Great Bend Tribune / Mar 23, 2021
fake fake fake fake
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?

As Biden might have said before the ring was inserted through his nose “COME-ON MAN.”

Beware of the false narrative
The Great Bend Tribune / Apr 17, 2021
Apparently a small segment of the American left thinks the police don’t have a right to defend themselves or the communities they serve from violence.

Facts are pesky things and when you separate them from race baiting propaganda, unjustified use of force by law-enforcement against blacks as with all other groups is extremely rare.

But I guess we should never let the facts get in the way of a good rampage, especially when you’re in pursuit of television ratings, a false narrative or a free pair of Nike sneakers.

Right-wing disinformation continues
The Great Bend Tribune /Jun 28, 2021
We see the same disturbing pattern being repeated in the Biden administration that was evident in his presidential campaign. A refusal to acknowledge the havoc raised by BLM and Antifa rioters until forced to do so by typically friendly media outlets.

At this moment an unchecked World invasion of the United States along our southern border is underway. Yet Biden told political commentator Charles Hurt that he inherited this problem from the previous administration and the situation was now under control.

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.

Clearly the Biden administration has placed the welfare of the nation below their own perceived political self-interest. Preferring instead to stand idly by while innocent American communities are being thrown to the wolves, forced to bear the brunt of this manufactured calamity.

The Wichita Egale - December 25, 2016
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.

The grip of evil
Article removed - Feb 16, 2018
The World is in the grip of evil, and like most evil, it passes itself off as the representative of good.

These angels of light tell us that we are supposed to accept those who have committed a crime by entering our country illegally.

That they commit less crime and pay more than their fair share when exactly the opposite is true.

We are supposed to happily hand over our moneyschools, and neighborhoods and if we object we are intolerant racists. After all, we are a nation of immigrants, aren't we?

It is time to put aside this childish rhetoric and the people who spew it.

The only thing that matters is what is in the interest of the United States and its citizens, not foreigners who disrespect our nation by willfully breaking our laws by remaining in our country.

Lives of innocent Americans should be considered in illegal immigration debate
Topeka Capital-Journal - Aug 9, 2015
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 Technician program 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.

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery

After four years of pummeling by a hostile media and six months of watching American cities being burned to the ground, not to mention a concerted attempt to erase our history during the “summer of love”, buttressed by the frustration of enforced lockdowns that defy logic and science, it is nauseating to hear our left-wing brothers and sisters along with a chorus of RINO republicans froth with contempt because some alleged Trump supporters went rogue at what started out as a peaceful rally and trashed what should have been heavily guarded government buildings. As usual, Donald J. Trump is the culprit (what else is new). There is no excuse for what happened at the capital on Wednesday, but for self-righteous types in the Democratic Party who have suddenly discovered that we must have law and order, remember that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

Swamp not getting drained
The Great Bend Tribune - Dec 1, 2020
Joe Biden is populating his administration with the same kind of swamp rat that has led this country down the primrose path through both republican and democratic administrations. When these geniuses use clichés like “common-sense gun laws”, “global climate change” or the term “existential threat”, hold on to your pants you’re about to be shoved down a rabbit hole with a girl named Alice.

Despite assurances from the master-elite, expect to pay higher gas and utility bills in pursuit of the religious cult of climate change. The American taxpayer will be expected to joyfully pay the health care costs of potentially millions of third-world vagabonds, not to mention flooding our schools with their children whom the Biden administration has every intention of repopulating our homeland with. Gregory Bontrager, Hutchinson

Nefarious infiltration
The Hutchinson News

August 9, 2018
Like a serpent in the darkness, Red China has been spreading its tentacles throughout Central and South America with the sole purpose of undercutting U.S. interests.

Even more nefarious is the Chinese infiltration of our universities, where their students are used as intelligence agents to steal our most vital military and economic technology.

A stranglehold of Chinese cash and large student enrollment has created an environment of bullying were direct and implied pressure from mainland China has created an environment of “keep the Chinese happy,” no matter what the cost.

As usual, the highest administrative levels of our universities have caved to Chinese pressure.

It may be necessary to limit the number of Chinese students permitted to attend our schools in order to protect our most valuable technology from the pervasive threat Chinese intelligence gathering pose to the security of the American people.

Do unto Biden as Dems did unto Trump
The Great Bend Tribune - Nov 17, 2020
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.

Furthering agendas
The Hutchinson News - Aug. 28, 2020
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.

Groundwork to Tyranny
Salina Journal– May 16, 2020
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 governors who 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 park or 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.

Hysterics from talking heads
The Hutchinson News - Jun 6, 2020
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.

False equivalency 
The Hutchinson News / Oct 4, 2020
Comparing white supremacist organizations with antifa and BLM is a false equivalency the left loves to conflate.

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.

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 that have been defaced 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 leaders are too craven to defend the images of our bygone past, then it is time to dispense with them and the rabble whose feet they kiss.

Soleimani met well-deserved fate
The Hutchinson News | Jan 26, 2020
Early death is rarely bestowed on its most deserving subjects. Like the  Carr brothers 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!

Step into sunshine
Topeka Capitol-Jounal - Jul 18, 2020
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 Africa or 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.

The Wichita Eagle - Oct 15, 2019
Only in our new political reality could someone like Sen. Bernie Sanders be taken seriously. If his ideas were new, it might be different, but they are as moribund as the former Soviet Union.

In the world of Sanders, we can look forward to energy dependence in pursuit of a pipe dream, health care rationing and the rise of an arrogant political minority that fancies itself the voice of the people.

Sanders praises Fidel Castro for an indoctrination literacy program, yet dismisses the vast accomplishments of President Donald Trump.

How times in America have changed that a crank like Sanders could rise to the top of the Democratic Party. This socialist fraud has been tried and failed before with the same decline into poverty and ideological duplicity.

We wouldn’t be given a choice with Sanders and his radical supporters. The outcome would be to force us into their program whether we like it or not.

How painfully embarrassing it was to watch former Vice President Joe Biden grovel at the inaptly named Biden Courage Awards in New York on March 26. And 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 skins fast enough to keep pace with their shameless pandering. Try representing the interests of America for a change instead of appeasing the Robespierre/George Soros wing of the Democratic Party.

Dorian Gray?
Observer Dispatch  - June 19, 2019
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.

Ramping up the echo chamber
The Hutchinson News - May 17, 2019
Using an interchangeable script, the media is ramping up the hysterical anti-Trump echo chamber. Without a single accomplishment, the Democrats only hope for 2020 is blowing smoke by gaslighting the Muller report.

Watching Democrats toot their ever-morphing virtue in the temple square has become a grotesque spectacle.

On May 8 at an elite $10,000 a ticket Hollywood fundraiser, an aging Joe Biden told his audience, “Let’s take America back.” A trip back to Obamaland with Uncle Joe means a stagnant economy, exploitation by China, a weak military, low wages, high unemployment and billions in new taxes.

Hopefully, after the 2020 elections, the only thing Biden and his Hollywood cronies will be taking is a trip back to their gated communities.

Team Biden Won’t Deport Illegal Immigrants Who Committed Murders, Sex Offenses!

Guard the border
Topeka Capital-Jurnal | July 1 /2010

When are we going to take the gloves off? With the escalating violence on the Mexican border spilling into the U.S., what better use for the thousands of soldiers retuning from Iraq and Afghanistan than to secure our southern border?

I am tired of seeing my country trashed by drug dealers and human traffickers.

What disturbs me even more is watching our political leadership bend to appease a Mexican government that actively encourages its citizens to break our immigration laws while it ruthlessly enforces its own.

We are being invaded by foreigners who don't care about our nation or our heritage. They are here for one reason, to take. Whether it be from our schools or medical system, these criminals continue to consume the life's blood of our elderly, children and working class.

We should expel those who have committed a criminal act by entering our nation illegally. If you have come to the U.S. by marriage fraud or any other illegal means you are not an immigrant, you are a criminal. You have no right to be here.

When will we man up and stop this invading army of marauders?


A vote against Kansas with open arms
SALINA JOURNAL - December 22, 2019

Gov. Kelly welcomes refugees to Kansas!

Just what Kansas needs to follow in the footsteps of GermanyFranceand 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

Devasting effects of criminal activity by illegal aliens
Great Bend Tribune - Aug 5, 2015, 10:33 AM
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 Technician program at Wichita State University.

I was working as a volunteer with 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 injurys 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.

Walls work
Kansas City Star - Jan 4, 2019
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.

Orchestrated attacks
SALINA JOURNAL - Nov 30, 2019
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.

Believing the lie
The Hutchinson News / Mar 8, 2019  
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.

Don’t believe the disinformation
The Hutchinson News - Jul 27, 2019
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.

Alexandria Ocasio- Cortez
The Hutchinson News - Feb 7, 2019
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.

The Wichita Eagle - June 2, 2019
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.

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.

The Wichita Eagle - Dec. 15, 2018
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.

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?

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 produced more stable, citizen-friendly societies

Border security
Artical removed - May 2, 2018
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.

Arguments against wall are wrong
Topeka Capital-Journal - Dec 31, 2018
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.

We've seen this act before
Salina Journal / Nov 29, 2018
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 justdon’t behave like our Mennonites
SALINNA JOURNAL - June 11, 2018
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?

If CNN reporter Jim Acosta’s intent was honest or at least he had a constructive purpose to his antics things might be different.

He does this at the expense of the American people and the other reporters who have legitimate questions to ask.

It's not just President Trump that Acosta is disrespecting but the millions of American citizens who love and voted for President Trump.

I want to hear what the president has to say, not the polemics of a disgruntled CNN windbag like Jim Acosta.

If Acosta or the other reporters in the press room can’t control the urge to make spectacles of themselves then they should be barred from the privilege of the press room.

No to elites
Kansas City Star - January 05, 2018
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.

Stealing technology
Topeka Capital-Journal | Sept. 4, 2011
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 (, 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.

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.”

There needs to be more transparency for patients when dealing with healthcare providers and hospitals in Kansas.

Before a procedure is performed, an estimate of procedure cost and insurance write-offs should be mandatory so the consumer can do competitive shopping for the lowest price.

The more ignorant the healthcare consumer is, the more profitable they are for the healthcare provider. Shopping for health care across state line should be allowed.

When other types of insurance were permitted to cross state lines, we saw an immediate drop in costs. Why should health insurance companies be permitted to hide behind state lines shielded from the competitive market place?

Clinton contemptuous to Americans
The Wichita Eagle - March 18, 2018  
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.

Tech giants like Google, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter are weeding out conservative voices on the internet by engaging in a technique called shadow banning. While liberal outlets like Media Matters and have been given free reign to shred the truth.

Conservative publications like The Daily Caller and Breitbart have seen up to a 30-percent drop because Google has altered the algorithms by which they appear in their search engines.

Notoriously liberal organizations like the Southern Poverty Law Center are being used as fact filters to weed out so-called hate speech and fake news. In effect, the chickens have been placed in charge of the hen house.

This fits a familiar pattern that when the left can't compete in the free marketplace of ideas, they attempt to suppress the truth by altering the rules of engagement for groups that they don't agree with.

Judge willfully engaging ideological obstructionism
Topeka Capital-Jounal | May 8, 2017
U.S. District Judge William H. Orrick has illegally blocked President Trump from withholding federal money from sanctuary cities. These cities are in open violation of U.S. law.

By blocking Trump's order, Judge Orrick has made himself a willing participant in the criminal activity of these sanctuary cities. Orrick is an Obama appointee who reportedly raised $200,000 and donated $30,000 of his own money to former president Obama.

The fact that cherry-picked judges like Orrick can be used to disrupt the lawful exercise of executive power is an act of lawlessness that must not be tolerated.

Politicized judges like Orrick know that their decisions will be overturned by a higher court, which means he is willfully engaging in ideological obstructionism. Not exactly ethical behavior for a jurist who is sworn to protect the constitution.

Obama holdovers are undermining the presidency of
Donald Trump

The Hutchinson News - Mar 10, 2017
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.

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.

Islam is not peaceful (PDF)

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?

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.

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.

Accept responsibility
The Hutchinson News - Aug 4, 2017
Everyone knows when you deal with criminals you are placing yourself in a high-risk category. At what point when you are being packed into the back of a trailer with a hundred other people do the alarm bells start to ring?

The people who paid for a space in the back of that truck knew they were committing a crime and chose to do it anyway. These” illegal aliens” made a calculated decision to violate U.S. Law and unfortunately some paid the ultimate price for that decision. Now the rest of America is supposed to engage in moralistic self-recrimination because of the willful behavior of these unfortunate people.

s it too much to expect that people who knowingly break the law accept some of the responsibility for their own actions. After all, they made themselves vulnerable by placing their fate in the hands of human traffickers.

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.

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.

Be careful what you ask for
The Great Bend Tribune - Oct 25, 2017
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.

Trump on our side
The Wichita Eagle - Mar 10, 2017
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

The Wichita Eagle - Dec 3, 2017
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.

Liberal nations letting citizens become terror prey
The Hutchinson News - March 28, 2016
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.

Extreme - Get The Funk Out
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.

Court seized power
The Wichita Eagle - February 19, 2016  
If the fate of a nation rests on a single Supreme Court nomination, that can only mean the court has become too powerful and gone beyond the powers envisioned by our founders. The court's mission is to interpret law, not act as a dictatorial body unrestrained by the legislature.

By what measure has our Constitution given the court power to bus your children into other neighborhoods, allow abortion or deem homosexual marriage legal? None. The court has seized that extra-constitutional power for itself and acts as a dictatorial body unrestrained by the will of the governed.

Cross out the word judge and replace it with Caesar or Fuhrer and the end has become the same as unelected government officials forcing themselves on an unwilling population. Your life and children have become subjects of social experimentation at the hands of activist judges who not only have ceded to themselves the power of judge but usurped the role of jury and executioner as well.

At what point in our democracy do we apply the brakes to an errant court that has overstepped its constitutional boundary?

Freedom of speech can be a double-edged sword
The Hutchinson News - Nov 2, 2016
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.

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.

Obama administration purgesthe ranks of most capable leaders
The Hutchinson News - May 6, 2016
David Petraeus is one of the greatest military minds of our era. He snatched victory from the jaws of defeat in the Iraq war and handed a slam-dunk to the Obama administration.

Instead of capitalizing on this victory, Obama replaced a generation of political and military success in the Middle East with the specter of a nuclear armed Iran and a cult of death that has metastasized throughout the world.

While Gen. Petraeus’ name has been dragged through the mud for his indiscretions, 6,600 convicted felons have been released from prison by the Obama administration because their sentences were deemed too harsh. The misconduct of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton outweighs anything Gen. Petraeus did, yet she receives a pass from the Democratic Party elite.

According to retired Gen. Paul Vallely, this follows a pattern by the Obama administration of purging the ranks of our most capable military leaders.

If anyone deserves consideration for the mistakes they made, it is heroes like Gen. David Petraeus, not thousands of dope peddlers or crooked politicians like Hillary Clinton.

Kansas City Star
When President Barack Obama leaves office in 2017, he will hand his successor a nation in chaos. On every front, this man has inflicted damage that may take generations to recover from.

Obama springs from the dark basement of the dissociative thought process of progressive liberalism. His administration has mastered the art of jumping from one lie and one disaster to another without missing a heartbeat. “Truth becomes lies,” “war is peace” and all that Orwellian memorabilia fit the “most transparent administration in history” to a T.

Great men and women try to find practical solutions to the world’s problems, while the Obamas of the world try to make the world’s problems fit politically correct solutions arrived at by ideological elitism. And when they fail, which they always do, it’s at the hands of some vast conspiracy instead of their own incompetence.

To politicians such as Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and Obama, the acquisition of power is the end in itself, and it will always be couched behind the fiction of looking out for the little guy.

Bernie Sanders got scammed
The Hutchinson News - Aug 2, 2016 
Bernie Sanders is a socialist cliche who hasn’t had an original thought since he honeymooned in Russia 28 years ago.

Poor Sen. Sanders got scammed by the queens of corruption, Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Hillary Clinton, and then he laid at the feet of Clinton like a puppy.

What will happen to the misguided people who placed their hopes in Bernie Sanders? They will be expected to smile and joyfully march into the arms of the Clinton political machine and forget how cynically they have been abused.

Supporting Trump
Article removed - Dec 10, 2015
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.

Southern border wall
The Hutchinson News - Sep 29, 2015  
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.

An ongoing conspiracy
| Dec. 30, 2015
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?

DNC stars not shining
Rockford Register Star - April 17 2015
The stars of the Democratic Party shine so bright don't they? After eight years of the Obama administrations 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.

Clinton running incognito
The Hutchinson News| May 26, 2015
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?

Hillary's spin machine going full tilt
Topeka Capital Journal | Jun 26, 2014 
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.

Benghazi matters
The Wichita Eagle - May 11, 2014
Unfortunately for the Obama administration and Democratic heir apparent Hillary Clinton, the Benghazi scandal has sprouted a new pair of legs. The four Americans who were abandoned by their country may soon become more than just another footnote in the sordid legacy of the Obama administration.

Perhaps Clinton will discover what difference it really does make as her complicity in this sinister affair becomes apparent to even the most limited voters.

You reap what you sow, and if the American people want to continue with this progressive liberal belly flop into another presidential election cycle, Clinton will make the ideal candidate.

In fairness to Clinton, she does possess convicted investment adviser Bernie Madoff‘s skill of milking the progressive Ponzi scheme until even the best and brightest have been thoroughly flimflammed.

The Zebra Murders:
A Legacy Retrospective from Penthouse Magazine
Clark Howard

The Wichita Egale - 2014
It’s almost biblical the way the United States is receding as the pre-eminent World power. And with our decline, chaos follows.

We lack even the rudimentary political will to control our own borders, much less our vital interests around the world. As Friedrich Nietzsche said generations ago, “Out of chaos comes order.” The frightening thing is Nietzsche’s kind of order comes at the price of our freedom and, if you live in the Middle East, maybe your head.

As the forces of darkness coalesce around our “shining city on the hill,” fecklessself-serving cowards inhabit the seats of power in Washington. Our enemies’ fear has turned into mocking laughter, as this stranded giant can’t even stop foreign children from walking across our border in broad daylight. Deviant lifestyles are taught as if they were normal in our schools, and left-wing disinformation is passed off as truth.

Day by day, the agencies responsible for maintaining order are being used as tools to spy on and persecute honest citizens because of their political views. As free American citizens, it is time that we reassert our constitutional sovereignty and take back our government from leftist usurpers who are determined to save us from ourselves whether we like it or not.

Death panels are here
The Hutchinson News | Oct 14, 2014
Obamacare isn’t going to call them death panels. The pattern will play out similar to the VA scandal. By limiting timely access to healthcare by using administrative delays, they are rationing healthcare. In effect, they have created death panels by allowing those most in need to die before receiving an appointment for medical treatment.

This is no longer in the realm of theory; faceless, nameless bureaucrats who sit at desks and care more about budgets and hiding mistakes will coldly, callously let you die.

What makes you think Barack Obama, who is off for a round of golf after the brutal beheading of a fellow American, will spend much time worrying about the fate of you and your family?

Seal the border
The Hutchinson News | Jun 5, 2013
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 way as the Mexican government?

Appreciating Reagan
The Topeka Capital Jounal | October 29, 2013
The foundation for our modern military and economic growth was established during the Reagan era. All the left-wing revisionism in the world can’t change that.

President Ronald Reagan pulled the United States out of recession within the first two years of his administration and placed the nation on the road to unprecedented prosperity. He did this with sound economic policy and an ability to work with people of differing political views. That is an attribute profoundly lacking in the current administration.

Reagan navigated government shutdowns that were managed as painlessly as possible. That, too, is unlike the Obama administration, which uses every opportunity to treat the American people as if they are pawns to be played for maximum political effect.

Obama 'hope, change' turned to 'cynicism, duplicity'
Topeka Capital-Jounal | Dec 16 2013
President Obama’s inability to “man up” to the malfeasance connected with his administration, coupled with an inability to tell the truth, appears to be a pathological characteristic of his presidency.

“Hope and change” has been replaced with an ethos of cynicism and duplicity.

With the election of her husband, Michelle Obama said, “For the first time in my life, I am proud of my country.” After America has been repeatedly lied to by Obama, who falsely claimed that you could keep your doctor and your health insurance, is the first lady still proud?

Fortunately for the Obama family, they are exempt from Obamacare. Apparently the cook is too good to sit at the same table with the proletariat.

Republican attempts to remove the special carve-outs for Congress under Obamacare were blocked in a party-line vote by the Democratic majority at the time. Is there no limit to the hypocrisy of this president and the Democratic Party?

If you have employer-based insurance, get ready. The other shoe has yet to drop. When the employer mandate kicks in, millions more Americans will lose their coverage and be forced into the uncertainty of overpriced Obamacare exchanges.

After five years of experience with the empty rhetoric of this administration, can anyone seriously have confidence in anything its people say or do?

Holder beholden to wrong cause
Topeka Capital-Jounal | Sep 10, 2013
U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder won’t be fired or resign because he is invaluable to President Barack Obama’s plans for America. Holder can be counted on to do the bidding of his master without question. Throughout history, it has been impossible for leaders like Obama to operate without functionaries like Holder.

Holder’s allegiance is not to the Constitution but to his political philosophy, which benevolently masquerades behind the iron fists of such agencies as the Internal Revenue Service.

With disregard for the law, this administration has shown a willingness to use government agencies in a chilling attempt to silence its political opponents. Using executive orders, Obama has shown contempt for constitutional authority by imposing his will on a population that has already spoken.

Liberal invasion
The Hutchinson News - April 11, 2013
The intrusion into our lives by well-meaning progressives has become pervasive. Who would have believed that the mayor of a major American city would try to mandate the size of the soda you could buy or that an appointed 15-person panel in Washington, D.C., would dictate the medical treatment you may receive.

Progressive liberals have one thing in common: They know what’s better for you than you do. They give us utopian promises backed by trillion-dollar deficits, crony capitalism and a stagnant economy . All they ask in return for “utopia” is your freedom, while exempting themselves from the same rules the rest of us are mandated to live by .

Will New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg or the Hollywood elite be placed on a waiting list to see the doctor or denied medical treatment? Will they be forced to walk down streets with guards who are not permitted to carry semiautomatic weapons? Of course not, but these same elitists will demand this of you and your family

You unlock this door with the key of intellectual dishonesty. Beyond this door is another dimension – a dimension of lies, a dimension of deceit, a dimension of unparalleled failure. You’re moving into a land of both darkness and despair, of a downgraded credit rating and a $16 trillion deficit. You’ve crossed into a land where middle-class income dropped by 5 percent, and with the worst economic recovery since the Great Depression.

Congratulations, you’ve just crossed over into the Obama Zone

How the ‘LEFT’ thinks
The Wichita Eagle
I don’t think anyone was more disappointed than I was when Mitt Romney lost the 2012 presidential election. The way I expressed my disappointment was by writing letters to the editor. It never once occurred to me that throwing a rock or breaking a window was a legitimate way to express my feelings.

It quickly became clear to me that there is a difference in the way people on the “left” think. They preach tolerance as long as they get what they want, but are viciously intolerant when they don’t.

As years of experience with Obama and Clinton has shown, deception is considered a legitimate part of doing business. There are no ethical limits when you consider yourself morally superior to others.

Young people who have been indoctrinated by the left in our schools and universities have not been taught the skill of critical thinking. They have been programmed to react in the same way as the Hitler Youth of Nazi Germany or the Young Pioneers of Red China. They march mindlessly down the “shining path” in route to a false new order that is older than the dawn of man. Gregory Bontrager

Pipeline delay a political decision
Topeka Capital-Jounal - Feb 3, 2012
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.

Fox News holds administration accountable
Topeka Capital Jounal | Dec 16, 2012
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.

Who got bin Laden?
Topeka Capital-Jounal | June 6, 2011
As America slips under the icy waters faster than the Titanic, who will save us from President Obama and the Democratic Party? Open the telephone book and select any name at random and you will likely find a more competent leader then this bungling socialist the American people have placed in our White House.

Did Obama kill Osama? No. If not for the ground work of George Bush and Dick Cheney, Osama bin Laden could have been living in Trump Tower and the Obama administration wouldn’t have had a clue.

Our brave Navy SEALs using information obtained from enhanced interrogation techniques and the polices of Bush/Cheney lead us to bin Laden. While the single greatest accomplishment of Obama is to take credit for the work of someone else.

You can’t have it both ways. If you’re going to blame everything on “eight years of Bush,” you have to give him credit for the demise of bin Laden too.

Once the flagship of Internet services, AOL now occupies the corner booth in the Internet flea market. In an attempt to revive its fall from the stars.

No friend to America
The Hutchinson News - Dec 01, 2010
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.

Ineffective leader
The Hutchinson News - Dec 17, 2010
Other then collecting $30.000 and warming a seat for three months in Topeka what has Senator Terry Bruce done for Reno County? After looking at his legislative record, one is hard pressed to find a single accomplishment, unless you consider extending the retirement age for District Court Judge Richard Rome to be an achievement.

Senator Bruce is part of the established political elite of Reno County, a “good old boy" whose ilk has run this town and state far too long. He has attained membership in the most exclusive club in Kansas, our Senate and will likely remain there because of the apathy of voters who are content to elect party operators who spend more time looking out for their political home boys then the citizens who elected them.

With the likely ascendance of Sam Brownback to the governorship I'm sure Mr. Bruce will make a lovely addition to the new governor's rubber stamp collection.

The Marriage Game
Topeka Capital-Jounal - Sept 12, 2010
As the market in marriage fraud grows unabated, Kansans are increasingly targeted by dishonest foreign nationals who marry American citizens to gain entry into the United States. Primarily from Asian, Latin and Eastern European countries these people will use any means necessary to escape abject poverty and social deprivation, including the destruction of your reputation and financial well-being.

Aided and abetted by attorneys who specialize in calculated character assassination and myriad well-intentioned church and social organizations, a silent atrocity is being perpetrated against innocent Americans who have naively married a foreign national.

Without hesitation, your home, job and standing in the community will be sacrificed in order to maintain their visa status. Your rights as an American citizen have become secondary in the new world order of political correctness.

Are all such marriages fraudulent? Of course not, but if you are marrying a foreign national beware, you are placing yourself in a high-risk category .

Abused orders
Topeka Capital-Jounal - Feb 24, 2010
Protection from abuse orders were put in place to address a serious problem. Unfortunately, they have become a tool used by dishonest attorneys or vengeful spouses to extort money or seek revenge on hapless spouses.

By the thousands, Kansans are labeled "abusers" by those who have a vested interest in misrepresenting the truth. Unscrupulous attorneys shamelessly manipulate protection from abuse rules for financial gain while masquerading under the color of law.

Even more disturbing is that our judiciary will stand idly by as false claims of abuse are taken at face value. With a wink and a nod, the reputations of Kansans are being destroyed in a quasi-legal process with standards akin to the Salem witch hunts.

Why is this disgrace allowed to continue? Because most legislators are attorneys, guaranteeing themselves continued profits at the expense of honest folks in what has become a corrupt money making scam called "divorce.

Invasion grows

Not only are the citizens of Arizona being invaded from Mexico, it would seem the invasion also includes mercenaries bused in from neighboring states.

Evidently Arizona citizens aren't capable of handling their problems without help from George Soros of the Open Society Institute and his crowd. As left-wing fascism strikes at the heart of our nation, heroes like Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Arizona, stand firm in the face of provocation by radical left-wing organizations like the Service Employees International Union.

These barbarians are no longer at the gate. They have metastasized into the body politic of our sleeping nation.

With insidious deliberation, we are being devoured from within by forces alien to our Constitution who are replacing our beliefs with their distorted progressive dogma. We must be aware, we must resist, or we will lose all that we value.

Glenn Beck of Fox News is a brilliant entertainer who overstates the truth the way truth is supposed to be overstated. The left is wilted by his blistering, hard-hitting persona and they just can't stand it.

With his impromptu style, Mr. Beck makes the toes of the neo-Marxist Obama administration curl like the Wicked Witch of the East in Munchkin Land. The closest thing the left can muster is Keith Olbermann of MSNBC. If he's the best you can do, all hands abandon ship. Um ... is that Barney Frank boarding that life boat?

Remember, if you repeat the truth over and over again someone will believe it. This is why the Obama administration hates Mr. Beck and Fox News with a passion

Thomas pegs Obama
Topeka Capital-Jounal - Jul 20, 2009
Once again, syndicated columnist Cal Thomas was on the mark. His insight, expressed in a recent column, into Obama’s belief that a good press release or putting on a good show in front of a teleprompter makes for sound policy is so true.

The fact is, Obama is all fluff and very little substance. It’s unfortunate that some liberals in this country swoon every time they see his face and fail to realize it’s backed by a head filled with tried and failed left wing policies as old as Karl Heinrich Marx.

Down the road to oblivion we travel, with the belief that Obama’s pretty face and glib syntax are going to save us from something.

GOP Failure
Wichita Eagle | 5.10.2008

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.

Harsh judgment
The Hutchison News / Sep 16, 2007
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.

Beware of 'predator'
The Hutchinson News / Jan 16, 2008
Citizens of the United States beware. At this moment, you are being stalked by a cunning, sophisticated predator. Thousands of American men and women have fallen victim to this ruthless hunter. The tool this predator uses is a smile, and the warm embrace of a lover.

This predator has one goal, to gain entry into the United States by marrying an American citizen. Once this objective is accomplished, you have served your purpose. You will be discarded like a rag. Be assured this predator is not alone. He or she will have access to attorneys who specialize in distorting the intent of our legal system.

No matter how unethical, they will get the job done. The predator, through legal maneuvering, is now transformed into a "victim"

Workers deserve more
The Hutchinson News - March 31, 2010
My son works for the Kansas Department of Corrections. Every day he goes to work I worry about his safety. I am appalled by the way DOC employees are treated by Topeka.

Instead of pay cuts, they should have a pay increase for the hazardous job they do. When is the Legislature going to wake up and protect the officers who protect us?

Reader appalledby insensitive police actions
The Hutchinson News - May 15, 2000
I can't express how outraged I was when I read the Western Front letter about the Hutchinson Police killing that little dog. If this was a vicious pit bull or Doberman maybe, but you mean the brave men of the police department can't handle a 20-pound lap dog without gunning it down! The callous insensitivity of this police department isn't to be believed.

I suppose this will be white-washed like it always is when the police get itchy trigger fingers.

Parents, guard your toddlers well. HPD is on patrol!

An opportunity missed
The Hutchinson News / Jan 27, 2008
I see this young man, as I have for years, sitting on the front porch of his mother's home, smoking his cigarette or walking his mom's dog around the neighborhood. He was a pleasant young man, with an unforgettable look of decency and eyes that shined with quiet kindness.

As the day draws to a close, I wish I had told this nice decent person how much I loved him and how much I will miss him.

In my mind's eye, I will see and say hi to this dear man the rest of my life as I walk the path to my home. I will always see him sitting on that porch.

Sleep in silence, dear soul; you have left your troubled world behind. With God's grace, may you lie down beside the still waters and find the peace that eluded you in this life.

Open Letter from Retired Generals and Admirals
Our Nation is in deep peril. We are in a fight for our survival as a Constitutional Republic like no other time since our founding in 1776. The conflict is between supporters of Socialism and Marxism vs. supporters of Constitutional freedom and liberty. 

During the 2020 election an “Open Letter from Senior Military Leaders” was signed by 317 retired Generals and Admirals and, it said the 2020 election could be the most important election since our country was founded. “With the Democrat Party welcoming Socialists and Marxists, our historic way of life is at stake.” Unfortunately, that statement’s truth was quickly revealed, beginning with the election process itself. 

Without fair and honest elections that accurately reflect the “will of the people” our Constitutional Republic is lost. Election integrity demands insuring there is one legal vote cast and counted per citizen. Legal votes are identified by State Legislature’s approved controls using government IDs, verified signatures, etc. Today, many are calling such commonsense controls “racist” in an attempt to avoid having fair and honest elections. Using racial terms to suppress proof of eligibility is itself a tyrannical intimidation tactic. Additionally, the “Rule of Law” must be enforced in our election processes to ensure integrity. The FBI and Supreme Court must act swiftly when election irregularities are surfaced and not ignore them as was done in 2020. Finally, H.R.1 & S.1, (if passed), would destroy election fairness and allow Democrats to forever remain in power violating our Constitution and ending our Representative Republic. 

Aside from the election, the Current Administration has launched a full-blown assault on our Constitutional rights in a dictatorial manner, bypassing the Congress, with more than 50 Executive Orders quickly signed, many reversing the previous Administration’s effective policies and regulations. Moreover, population control actions such as excessive lockdowns, school and business closures, and most alarming, censorship of written and verbal expression are all direct assaults on our fundamental Rights. We must support and hold accountable politicians who will act to counter Socialism, Marxism and Progressivism, support our Constitutional Republic, and insist on fiscally responsible governing while focusing on all Americans, especially the middle class, not special interest or extremist groups which are used to divide us into warring factions. 

Additional National Security Issues and Actions: 

• Open borders jeopardize national security by increasing human trafficking, drug cartels, terrorists entry, health/CV19 dangers, and humanitarian crises. Illegals are flooding our Country bringing high economic costs, crime, lowering wages, and illegal voting in some states. We must reestablish border controls and continue building the wall while supporting our dedicated border control personnel. Sovereign nations must have controlled borders.

• China is the greatest external threat to America. Establishing cooperative relations with the Chinese Communist Party emboldens them to continue progress toward world domination, militarily, economically, politically and technologically. We must impose more sanctions and restrictions to impede their world domination goal and protect America’s interests. 

• The free flow of information is critical to the security of our Republic, as illustrated by freedom of speech and the press being in the 1st Amendment of our Constitution. Censoring speech and expression, distorting speech, spreading disinformation by government officials, private entities, and the media is a method to suppress the free flow of information, a tyrannical technique used in closed societies. We must counter this on all fronts beginning with removing Section 230 protection from big tech. 

• Re-engaging in the flawed Iran Nuclear Deal would result in Iran acquiring nuclear weapons along with the means to deliver them, thereby upsetting Mideast peace initiatives and aiding a terrorist nation whose slogans and goals include “death to America” and “death to Israel” . We must resist the new China/Iran agreement and not support the Iran Nuclear Deal. In addition, continue with the Mideast peace initiatives, the “Abraham Accords,” and support for Israel. 

• Stopping the Keystone Pipeline eliminates our recently established energy independence and causes us to be energy dependent on nations not friendly to us, while eliminating valuable US jobs. We must open the Keystone Pipeline and regain our energy independence for national security and economic reasons. 

• Using the U.S. military as political pawns with thousands of troops deployed around the U.S. Capitol Building, patrolling fences guarding against a non-existent threat, along with forcing Politically Correct policies like the divisive critical race theory into the military at the expense of the War Fighting Mission, seriously degrades readiness to fight and win our Nation’s wars, creating a major national security issue. We must support our Military and Vets; focus on war fighting, eliminate the corrosive infusion of Political Correctness into our military which damages morale and war fighting cohesion. 

• The “Rule of Law” is fundamental to our Republic and security. Anarchy as seen in certain cities cannot be tolerated. We must support our law enforcement personnel and insist that DAs, our courts, and the DOJ enforce the law equally, fairly, and consistently toward all. 

• The mental and physical condition of the Commander in Chief cannot be ignored. He must be able to quickly make accurate national security decisions involving life and limb anywhere, day or night. Recent Democrat leadership’s inquiries about nuclear code procedures sends a dangerous national security signal to nuclear armed adversaries, raising the question about who is in charge. We must always have an unquestionable chain of command. 

Under a Democrat Congress and the Current Administration, our Country has taken a hard left turn toward Socialism and a Marxist form of tyrannical government which must be countered now by electing congressional and presidential candidates who will always act to defend our Constitutional Republic. The survival of our Nation and its cherished freedoms, liberty, and historic values are at stake.

We urge all citizens to get involved now at the local, state and/or national level to elect political representatives who will act to Save America, our Constitutional Republic, and hold those currently in office accountable. The “will of the people” must be heard and followed.
