FLOWER MOUND, TX — October 21, 2021 — I remember a comedy skit several years ago in which a woman comes home unexpectedly and finds her husband in bed with another woman. Shocked, she demands to know who the woman is and why is her husband doing this. The couple gets out of bed and starts getting dressed as the man says to his wife, “honey, what are you talking about?” The wife, perplexed at the question, says, “I’m talking about that woman!” Meanwhile, the other woman, now fully dressed, heads for the door. The husband says, “What woman? Honey, are you feeling okay? There’s no woman here.” Feeling dazed and confused, the wife begins to question her own sanity.

That’s a pretty good example of what the Biden Administration is pulling on the psyche of the American people. What they’re doing is not merely “spin,” which has become SOP whenever a political party does a clever sales job on the public in order to keep certain facts from them. No, this is much more than shrewd marketing; this is blatantly lying in the public’s face and telling them they’re crazy if they believe their own eyes. When we look at videos showing thousands of migrants coming across our southern border with impunity, while Biden and his cohorts tell us they have the situation under control, we’re being gaslighted.

When thousands of Americans and Afghan allies are abandoned to be tortured and killed by Taliban terrorists, while Biden’s Press Secretary Jen Psaki tells us the war ended successfully, we’re being told not to believe what we’re seeing. President Trump made our country energy independent, only to have his success overturned by Biden on day one of his presidency. That forced our country to once again be dependent on foreign oil. Biden said his action would help protect the environment. We scratch our heads and wonder how it makes sense to ship millions of barrels of oil on cargo ships from thousands of miles away, only to be used the same way it was used when it was processed here. Does foreign oil have less environmental effect than American oil?

When Biden proposes a $3.5 billion “infrastructure bill” that is heavily weighted toward social engineering and radical “Green New Deal” initiatives, we’re told that  everything is infrastructure. We’re also told that the massive spending bill will cost “zero dollars” because the new taxes will only be assessed on the wealthy. Then, to add more consternation to a public that is getting groggy trying to keep up with 12-digit numbers, Biden and his accomplices want another $80 billion for the IRS, so they can check into every bank account that has transfers of $600 or more. As if the IRS wasn’t already a de facto domestic terror organization, whenever Democrats are in power, Biden wants to provide them with more ammo to use against those who oppose him. Nevertheless, we’re told they’re only going after tax cheats. Why would they need $80 billion more to do what they’ve always done? Don’t ask, lest you get audited for questions they don’t want asked.

When the supply chain of cargo ships, carrying about a half million shipping containers filled with goods from all around the globe, are stalled in the waters outside of major American port cities, we’re told by White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain that it’s just “high-class problems.” In other words, only the wealthy are waiting for the goods to arrive at stores. Moreover, Jen Psaki mocks it as the “tragedy of the treadmill that’s delayed.” Another reference by an elitist, poking fun at the reasonable expectations coming from the working class.

The list of gaslighting incidents is growing longer than the proverbial nose of Pinocchio. Each time we are faced with another destructive lie, our attention is diverted to the latest Trump investigation, or the probe of one of his supporters. Keeping the January 6 imbroglio alive is one of those diversions. The radical left has come to power by a sinister display of distractions from reality. A major part of that distraction is using accusations of racism to muzzle opposition. Most people will cower in fear of such labeling, even when they know in their hearts it’s not true. That’s precisely what makes the accusations so useful to those who seek power through intimidation and distortion of reality.

President Trump called out situations for what they are, without the odious and murky filtration of political correctness. That’s why the entrenched powers of deep state corruption despised him. Now, we’re stuck with a president that says, “what inflation?” as we pay higher prices than ever at the gas pump and the supermarket. I seriously doubt that shoppers are questioning that reality.

  1. once this administration has its act together and passes both infrastructure and the reconciliation bill and once people feel the effects of both pieces of legislation, Biden’s numbers will go back up…And once Donald Trump is indicted in multiple jurisdictions for multiple felonies there will be no question of who should be running the show

    1. Absolutely pathetic as DAs like “ME-ME” Rocah and Cyrus Vance as well as NYS AG Leticia James continue to fail to protect their constituents and prefer to take a page out of the FBI (Famous But Incompetent) playbook and investigate people and not crimes while conducting these ridiculous Trump witch hunt investigations. You “progressives” have no idea how dangerous this is until it’s of course done to your political sacred cows. Meanwhile Hunter Biden is a known crack head acting as “The Big Guy’s” bag man in China and Ukraine as he’s obviously a human compromise perversion “victim” due to his penchant for disturbingly young girls set up by the communist Chinese Party with the obvious ramifications for the obviously cognitively impaired president. Somehow this goes unnoticed by the aforementioned “law enforcement professionals” as the leftists pretend there’s no supply chain shortage or staggering inflation with impending unsustainable taxes coming for their socialist government not free enterprise “Build Back Better” charade.
      I don’t know what’s scarier, three more years of Biden’s lunacy or Kamala’s incompetence.

      1. that’s right simply dismiss elected law enforcement officers as conducting witch hunts against Donald Trump..Of course the fact that Trump has engaged in fraud his entire adult life shouldn’t stand for anything..That Trump university had to refund 26 million dollars to those it defrauded means nothing to you..or that the value of Trumps hotels and golf courses are understated to gain preferential tax treatment while they are overstated to collateralize loans also is meaningless? And the six Trump bankruptcies taken for his Atlantic City casinos leaving his creditors with worthless paper is also unimportant…And Trumps call to Georgia Sec of State Brad Raffensberger asking him to find 11,800 votes for Trump is also irrelevant..Trump is a crook..he always has been…and now he will find that the worst investment he ever made was running for President

        1. What happened with your “Russian Collusion?” The only actual collusion is with the “Big Guy” and Hunter. Trump is a narcissistic sociopathic pathological liar and exactly what we need to deal with communists and Islamists. Please enjoy the fruits of your labor white liberals because you’ve certainly earned it as our country implodes on the local, state, National and international level. Us “deplorables” can and will defend ourselves, you can’t and won’t.

          1. Let’s understand the notion that there was no russian collusion…There was plenty of collusion between the Trump campaign and those working for Trump and Russians prior to the 2016 election. In addition the Senate Foreign relations committee and its Republican Chairman Richard Burr issued a report which stated categorically that the Russians interfered in the2016 election and they interefered to help Trump and hurt Clinton. The fact of the matter is that Paul Manafort who was Trumps campaign manager at the time gave Trumps internal polling data to Konstantin Kilimnik who in turn gave it to Oleg Derepaska a Russian GRU operative. THat polling information was used by the bots and trols in St Petersberg to micro target swing state voters down to the precinct level. There were over 184,000 social media posts dinging clinton and urging democrats to stay home based on what Manafort provided. Maybe you fail to understand the difference between collusion and conspiracy..THere was absolutely provable collusion, in fact the Trump campaign met with various Russians over 100 times during the campaign. They were aware of and welcomed the russian interference. Conspiracy however is another story and unlike collusion, conspiracy is a crime. The Mueller report indicated that there was insufficient evidence to charge conspiracy although the report made clear that Trump obstructed the investigation at every turn…To suggest then that the Russian were not actively involved in electing Trump in2016 flies in the face of the overwhelming evidence. If you read cyberwars by Katherine Hill Jamieson it will become clear that Trumps narrow electoral college victory was a function of Russian Interference period.

  2. Hey sugar boo you may actually outlive this administration and see your man ‘reinstated’…enjoy the limited time you have left on the planet ..us Dems are gonna blow it all up.

    1. I don’t understand how that 1/2 of the people here just can’t comprehend that “the local uptick in crime” is a national problem. Because of defunding and demoralizing law enforcement, cities like Chicago, Philadelphia and NYC are deteriorating past the point of no return.

      Countless small and large businesses were destroyed by ANTIFA/BLM communist foot soldiers who cost billions of dollars in damage.

      If you combine this with an obviously senile president presiding over an increasingly severe supply chain shortage as well as spiraling inflation in addition to ridiculous Covid restrictions we’re headed for disaster.

      This is in addition to the critical racist theory teaching children to hate their country and that they’re either victims or victimizers as objecting parents are being treated as “domestic terrorists” by the Famous But Incompetent (FBI) AKA The Best Buy Geek Squad with guns and badges.

      I’ll defer South American immigrants because they’re keenly aware of how the same socialist fantasy turned Venezuela (which borders her Columbia) from the jewel of Latin America into an absolute communist hell hole.

      The Shiite Islamists did exactly the same thing to the once thriving beautiful Christian nation of Lebanon as told to me by personal friends who witnessed it in the 1970s-1980’s. I heard exactly the same story from Cuban friends and I have been to Russia, Africa and the Middle East and have personally witnessed the misery brought forth by communism as well as by Islamists.

      This is in addition to personally witnessing Northern Ireland turned into a brutal war zone by the socialist Irish Republican Army.

      Remember according to the communist manifesto the goal of socialism is communism and a socialist is just a communist without a gun. Radical Islamists follow exactly the same course of action.

      1. Your view of History is one sided and very narrow. You forget that many of the places you mentioned were kept that way by US policy, but you wouldn’t understand that, The biggest form of socialism in this country is the taxbreaks to the corporations and billionaires.
