Whose Side Is He On?

| Posted in Blog Postings

If you’re scratching your head over this, join the crowd. Shortly after killing a pipeline that would have helped Americans and U.S. energy independence, Biden goes on to remove the only legal barriers we have opposing another pipeline that will promote RUSSIAN dominance and likely make our European allies more reliant on Vladimir Putin.

A man named Anming Hu was arrested and is to face trial for wire fraud and lying to U.S. authorities.

President Biden’s Recent Budget Proposal

| Posted in Blog Postings

I want to highlight a few things in President Biden’s recent budget proposal, because it really speaks to where his priorities are. First, the crazed spending. For context, the federal government spent $4.1 trillion in fiscal year 2019, before the pandemic.
