If former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Kamala Harris win the United States is in for a bumpy ride.

Biden an embarrassment
Posted April 10, 2019

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

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

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

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

How many more Americans will be victimized by this new crop of illegals while Democrats and corporate opportunists like the Koch brothers refuse to work with Trump? Try representing America for a change instead of pandering to the Robespierre/Cortez wing of the Democratic Party.

Not a fan of Biden’s strategy
Topeka Capital Journal - Jun 20, 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.

Vote for Trump 
The Kansan - Jul 22, 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.

We’re risking our civil liberties
Topeka Capital Journal – May 7, 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 sowrong.

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.

Thoughts on China / Nefarious infiltration
The Kansan - Aug 16, 2018 / The Hutchinson News- Aug 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.

Stealing technology
Topeka Capital Journal -September 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 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BkFaiPQ-sJE), 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.
