Joe Biden and the Democratic Party fiercely supports and aggressively defends the following issues which are all very problematic.

1. Inflation — intentionally raising gas, food and consumer prices.

2. Defunding the police — creating a society absent of law and order while they have bodyguards or hire private security details.

3. Crime — releasing rapists and murderers to prey on innocent citizens.

4. Open borders — allowing foreigners, to include terrorists, to come into our country unchecked.

5. Illegal immigration — to amass a new Democrat voting block in the future.

6. Illegal drug use — fentanyl killed over 108,000 thousand Americans last year.

7. Destruction of the family unit — which is by the book Marxism.

8. Abortion on demand — except for babies in their family.

9. High taxes and extreme regulations — that destroy jobs and discourages the start of new businesses.

10. Assaults on religious freedom — pushing God out of the public-square, disrupting worship services. vandalizing/burning churches, synagogues and temples of worship.

11. An under-funded and “woke” military — which results in a weak and ineffective domestic and national security preparedness posture.

12. Discombobulated and feckless foreign policy — dictators and despots around the world are on the rampage without fear of consequences.

13. Media bias — a media that specializes in propaganda/disinformation telling lies to the American people to cover-up the Democrats’ failures.

14. Attacks on freedoms and rights — punishing those who disagree with them or choose to exercise their rights to defy government mandates.

15. Exploiting children — exposing children to sexually perversive content rather than providing them with quality educational experiences which promote and develop content area skills and knowledge (i.e., reading, math, science, etc.).

16. Destroying the 2nd Amendment — taking away your constitutional right to legally bear arms.

17. Staying in power by any means necessary!

In two short years Biden and the Democrats have succeeded in putting America on life-support. Sad to say but America is on its deathbed. Mainstream and social media organizations like CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, Washington Post, New York Times, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, Microsoft, and many others have all unashamedly and unapologetically colluded with politicized U.S. government entities/agencies to help Biden and the Democrats seize power in 2020 and to remove Donald J. Trump from the Office of the Presidency of the United States. To date and from this day forward, they are all totally and solely responsible for our country’s catastrophic and tragic condition.

What did their diabolical collaborations do for America? Their cold-blooded, biased and self-serving collusion resulted in the following:

1. a dysfunctional federal government

2. a feeling of hatred, disunity, distrust and division between the races

3. a seriously distressed and recessed economy

4. an unprecedented dependency on foreign energy

5. an out-of-control rise in crime across the nation

6. highest rise in Inflation in over forty years.

Biden and his Democrat minions are leading the American people on a “death-march” toward extinction as a land of the free and the home of the brave.

What needs to happen to stop the madness? Answer: Go Vote

Vote for Republican/Conservative candidates in the 2022 midterms on Tuesday, November 8th. Simply do this:

Put your faith above your politics and vote to “Save America” from further destruction. Our future and our children’s future are in your hands.

Remember, “Freedom is not Free.”

God Bless,

  1. No problem! FYI – El Peso’s LARGEST refugee shelter closed in August 2022 (Casa del Refugiado) as they were overrun by Biden’s open border policy. The facility was capable of handling 1500 migrants at a time, but when the influx became 1000 PER DAY earlier this year in El Paso alone, they were no longer able to keep up. Not enough staff, not enough beds, an aging facility and so on.

    There remains several much smaller shelters in the area, but on average they can only host 20 migrants at a time, including the Annunciation House for which there are several in the border region. The shelters in Texas have been stretched beyond their capabilities (along with much of there other infrastructure), thus the primary reason we are seeing migrants transferred to other cities.

  2. Several have contributed thoughts and opinions (for / against) the author’s political party talking points. A few have even taken the time to do some quick homework. Even less however and quite similar to the current GOP have even offered up any solutions. But here’s the take; do not suggest for a second that senator want-to-be Herschel Walker understands any or most of it. And that is your very sad commentary for the day.

  3. I don’t agree with the tone of some of the points in Mr Jones’ letter. Not my preferred way to communicate. However, the personal attacks and the derisive labels meant to dismiss his ideas are lame. If you disagree, step up and provide a logical, fact-based counter.

    To me, the opinions he expressed would have been accepted as American values and beliefs not that long ago by a majority on both sides of the political aisle. No more. What happened? As many have said, they did not leave the Democrat Party – – it left them. That’s the reason former Democrat Presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard gave upon leaving the Party last week.

    Compare both parties’ platforms from 20 years ago. Clearly, the Democrat platform is the most different from back then. Are we on a better path as a nation because they are in power?

    I don’t think so. Things I’m considering when deciding how I’ll vote, with as many facts as I can gather:

    Inflation – out of control due to excessive government spending. Both parties deserve our scorn for the $31,000,000,000,000+ in debt, but Democrats own the last 2 years of $trillions we shouldn’t have spent. Individual student loans are now taxpayers’ responsibility???? House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-SC) admitted on MSNBC this week that they knew this all would lead to inflation, but they did it anyway.

    Gas Prices – why is our President going hat in hand to other countries to increase the supply of gas / oil, when we are literally standing on the answer with our own resources? Where is the sense in draining the Strategic Petroleum Reserve, except to try to affect prices at the pump before this election?

    Crime – Democrat prosecutors and the Defund The Police movement (supported by our President and VP on down) are leading causes of lawlessness. See also BLM riots. It’s the Democratically-controlled cities, not “red states”, that account for most of the spike in crime, Suz.

    The Border – lawlessness again. I’m pro-legal immigration – – entry based on our laws and needs as a country. Every person who crosses our border without authorization has committed a crime, asylum-seeker or not. I traveled around the world in my business career, and every other country takes their national border entry and security seriously. Democrats don’t. Immigration officials encountered more than 1.7 million illegals along the U.S. border in 2021, three times the number they reported in 2020. 2022 will be worse. Look at the windmills and rainbows argument for open borders by Suz here that dismisses the preventable tragedy of human trafficking, Fentanyl / drugs and crime. And again, taxpayers are on the hook to pay for these illegals that cannot support themselves. (reminder – we are $31 TRILLION in debt). What about our own citizens that need shelter? Our veterans that deserve care after serving? Seniors on Medicare and Social Security? We can’t even afford social programs that we’ve already committed to do, so our citizens must come before taking on the rest of the world.

    Our children – the Democrat Party supports sexualizing and teaching CRT to kids in public schools, allowing men to compete in women’s sports and policies that take away our rights as parents to decide what’s best for our children.

    Nonsense – They insist we use pronouns for the 45 genders that were made up yesterday, claim men can give birth and have abandoned equality of opportunity for “equity” – – equal outcomes by force of government. Our most recent Supreme Court Justice cannot define what a woman is!

    The list goes on and on.

    I’ll vote for the candidates who share the American values Mr Jones wrote about. I cannot find them in the Democrat Party anymore.

  4. True to form, the MAGA hand book has one projecting, blaming the opposition for the things one is guilty of. I can only come to one of two conclusions – either Mr. Jones is so painfully ignorant as to the workings of the government that you almost feels sorry for him, or he is blatantly lying to promote flawed talking points.

    He did get one thing right – freedom is not free. It requires courage and conviction. Country above party.

    Not being a yes man, and regurgitating rhetoric that is fundamentally inaccurate and designed to scare.

  5. It is puzzling to me that Mr Jones considers himself an expert on what “Joe Biden and the Democratic Party fiercely supports and aggressively defends,” and then lists a genuine Gish Gallop of issues that no one supports or defends. His first assertion is that Pres Biden supports inflation! Good Lord, the last person who wants inflation is the man whose election mainly depends on how the economy is doing in this heartless country! If he could stop inflation, he would! Mr. Jones, do you honestly think Pres Biden and the left aggressively defend and support inflation, high taxes, illegal drug use, and crime? You say they do! But why would they, when all those things spell disaster at the polls?

    I don’t have time to research and refute all the specious assertions in this ridiculous letter, but to give an idea to anyone who might be tempted to take Mr. Jones seriously (in Trey Hoffman’s absence!), I will pick out a couple of the ost egregious…

    Mr Jones says Pres Biden supports defunding police. There are more than 2 problems with this assertion, but for starters: Pres Biden said recently in a speech the answer to crime is not to defund police but to “fund them! fund them!” He said it twice … I don’t personally agree with the president on this, but the other fact is: no police departments have been defunded! The police union can cry that a crime wave in a big city is down to their being defunded, but an ABC news study found that more than 90% of police department budgets are bigger today that they were in 2019. There has been no defunding on a noticeable scale, and if there were, Pres Biden didn’t support it. So, Mr Jones, your saying that Pres Biden “fiercely supports and aggressively defends” defunding police is, if not a lie, at least, a mistaken impression you have from listening to the far right’s talking points.

    Mr Jones says Pres Biden supports high taxes and extreme regulations that destroy jobs and doom small business, but a recent report says that the tax code’s inflation adjustment will put many of us in LOWER tax brackets for 2023, so we will pay less taxes, and according to the NY Times, “The shift would be slightly larger if not for a change Republicans made as part of President Donald J. Trump’s tax overhaul that was passed in 2017.” So it isn’t Pres Biden who is trying to tax us into oblivion, but former Pres Trump (who himself paid $750 in income tax in 2019?!) whose actions are keeping more of us paying higher rates.

    These are just two of the deceptive statements Mr Jones makes about what Pres Biden and the left fiercely support and aggressively defend, and they are both, if not honest mistakes, outright lies meant to manipulate. If anyone is taking seriously what Mr Jones says is true of Pres Biden and the left, please take the time to research each of his opinions listed above against sources other than Fox News or Breitbart. You will see that nothing is as black and white as Mr Jones pretends and NO ONE supports exploring children, illegal drug use, attacks on liberty, etc.

    I find Mr Jones’ final thoughts quite telling, as, I think, Suz did as well:

    “Vote for Republican/Conservative candidates in the 2022 midterms on Tuesday, November 8th. Simply do this:
    “Put your faith above your politics and vote to ‘Save America’ from further destruction. Our future and our children’s future are in your hands.”

    But which does he really mean? Vote your faith, or vote GOP? If you vote your faith and find yourself casting your ballot for Rev Warnock, I believe you ARE in fact voting to save America from further destruction in accordance with principles of Jesus’ teaching to love your neighbor! If you vote your faith and find yourself voting for Herschel Walker, a man you would not want your daughter to date, then you are voting for the destruction of your future and your children’s future. See how that works? People of faith CAN stand with Pres Biden and the left to promote liberty, democracy, and love — and people of a different kind of faith can stand with Mr Jones and Mr Walker and former Pres Trump to promote militarism, nationalism, and fascism, if that’s what their faith is all about.

    So in the end, we agree. Put your faith above your politics, vote, and save America.

      • Spyglass, therein lies the sad truth about our nation: “vote with my wallet” means as long as the economy is working for me, then to h*ll with everyone else, I will vote for the person who protects my bottom line. Why do you suppose Elon Musk is now arch-conservative? But here’s the thing: fascism is worse than inflation, and what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses his soul?

        And even if a robust economy is what decides how you vote, do you really think that works for you as middle American? Look at what I just posted above re the tax rates: it was the former GOP President whose tax overhaul meant more of us will remain in higher tax brackets next year. Wouldn’t it make more sense to vote for a party that is trying to lift up the vulnerable — especially as the middle class shrinks more and more in America?

        You say it’s hard to ignore what happened since the last election. I agree. Since the last election, our government finally began taking climate change seriously, expanded ACA to include more people in need, saved millions of lives by promoting covid vaccines and boosters, stopped a disastrous rise in violent crime (particularly in blue states which have on average lower murder rates than red), and kept inflation rates among the lowest in the developed world — if you look at those rates in other developed nations, we’re on the lower spectrum; inflation isn’t a problem caused by the Democrats in the USA, it’s global. So really, if your wallet IS your determiner of how you will vote, you probably DO want to keep the nation as blue as possible, based on all evidence since the last election.

          • “Spyglass, therein lies the sad truth about our nation: “vote with my wallet” means as long as the economy is working for me, then to h*ll with everyone else. Why do you suppose Elon Musk is now arch-conservative? But here’s the thing: fascism is worse than inflation, and what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses his soul?”
            Yes, It actually posted this!

        • Jax: “what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses his soul?”

          Me: You should consider far-left billionaire and philanthropist George Soros who has plenty of money, but lost his soul. He is the person funding progressive causes at the expense traditional values and national sovereignty. According to recent Georgia state filings, Soros sent $1 million through his election influence machine, Democracy PAC II, to One Georgia Inc. on Sept. 30th. One Georgia Inc. was started to help propel Abrams to victory in her second gubernatorial race in Georgia. Soros’s most recent donation to the Abrams campaign follows the $2.5 million he pushed into One Georgia during the 2nd quarter.

          Jax: “it was the former GOP President whose tax overhaul meant more of us will remain in higher tax brackets next year.”

          According to Smartasset.com: “The biggest changes under the Trump tax plan came from those in the “middle” of the chart. A married couple whose total income minus deductions is $250,000 would have had a 33% tax rate in 2017. For 2018, 2019 and beyond, their highest tax rate is just 24%. That led to a fairly significant difference in take-home pay.”

          “Those who earn less may also see a bit of a break. A single person making $39,000 in taxable income in 2017 saw a rate of 25%. In 2018, 2019 and beyond, that rate dropped to 12%.”

          Me: Not sure where you get your information, but I’m not seeing it in the rate chart comparisons.

          Jax: Since the last election, our government finally began taking climate change seriously:

          EPA: Emissions decreased from 2019 to 2020 by 11% (after accounting for sequestration from the land sector). The primary driver for the decrease was an 11% decrease in CO2 emissions from fossil fuel combustion. This decrease was primarily due to a 13% decrease in transportation emissions driven by decreased demand due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Electric power sector emissions also decreased 10%, reflecting both a decrease in demand and a continued shift from coal to less carbon intensive natural gas and renewables. Greenhouse gas emissions in 2020 (after accounting for sequestration from the land sector) were 21% below 2005 levels.

          Me: Appears this fight has been going on for a long time Jax, not just the past two years.

          Jax: “stopped a disastrous rise in violent crime”
          WASHINGTON (AP) — Crime rates changed dramatically across the United States in 2020. Most significantly, the murder rate — that is, the number of murders per 100,000 people — rose sharply, by nearly 30%. Assaults increased as well, with the rate of offenses rising by more than 10%. In 2021 the FBI estimates violent crime rates didn’t increase substantially over 2020, though they remained above pre-pandemic levels, according to annual incomplete crime data.

          Me: While it appears the crime rate has leveled off I’d think we should’ve seen a significant decrease in order to claim a “progressive talking point” after a nearly 30% increase in 2020.

          Jax: “kept inflation rates among the lowest in the developed world — if you look at those rates in other developed nations, we’re on the lower spectrum”

          Forbes: it’s important to note that each country calculates its inflation rate a bit differently and regional circumstances can also affect the rate. A 10% inflation rate in the U.S., for instance, isn’t necessarily the same as a 10% inflation rate in Turkey. The factors underlying inflation in each country or geographic region are complex. Government policies, fiscal and monetary interventions, interest rate changes and even extreme weather can all contribute to inflation. While it isn’t a strict apples-to-apples comparison, it can give us a broader outlook on what is happening globally.

          Me: therefore reporting the US in the “lower spectrum” of a global ranking is inaccurate due to reporting methodologies being diverse by country.

          Jax: “inflation isn’t a problem caused by the Democrats in the USA”

          Invesco: What’s Driving Global Inflation? Market analysts and strategists cite several factors behind global price hikes. Kristina Hooper, chief global market strategist at Invesco, references two textbook examples why inflation is currently high: demand-pull inflation and cost-push inflation.

          Demand-pull inflation occurs when prices increase due to increased demand, she explains. Demand-pull inflation can be driven by increased government spending (for instance, providing stimulus checks).

          The other type of inflation we’re seeing, cost-push inflation, leads to price increases when the supply of goods and services is disrupted. High prices for oil and natural gas are good examples here.

          Me: With the Democrats having control of our government the past two years they certainly are the driver of government spending and of course the energy policy put in place and its associated cost, thus the inflation we are experiencing. And with the US having one of the largest economies in the world the policies they support have significantly impacted the global economy as well.

          In summary, I’d say its 99% true the new Democrat Party is responsible for most of the messes we have today that are important to voters, they just aren’t as smart as the old Dem party under Clinton, who admitted mistake and adjusted wisely enough to survive another term. Different world Jax.

  6. Dear Mr. Jones–“Put your faith above your politics…”. Exactly.

    My faith tells me first and foremost to Love. To care. To include. Everyone.

    Not because of who THEY are; but because of who I am, in Christ.

    Regardless of their nationality (or legal status), race or religion, gender identity, economic situation…I cast my vote on their behalf. “The least of these” as it were.

    My sister gave me a bracelet that reads, “LOVE IS MY RELIGION”. I makes me smile. It gives me hope. My faith is not fear-based nor legalistic nor angry–I do not see “…the American people on a “death-march” toward extinction”! Rather I see the coming of God’s peaceable kingdom. I pray for it. I work for it. And yes, I vote for it.

    And no one will be left out of it. That is not a “death march”. That’s a joyful “Second Line” (a nod to my home in NOLA!).

  7. Mr. Jones the Bible says in Matthew 7:5; Hypocrite!!! First get rid of the log in your own eye; then you will see well enough to deal with the speck in your friend’s eye. It is time for Republicans and Democrats to come together and come up with solutions to our problems instead of pointing fingers at each other. We have a good country but we can have a great country for everyone in America if we sit down together like we never have before and come up with good solutions to our problems.

    • The truth is hard to bear sometimes but the words written by a man who has served his country, his state, his coubty, his family and been an effective leader in our education of our children being recalled from Fayette County Education to serve his country twice after retirement! what have YOU done to serve and make an impact? Not criticizing, just asking? Then try to list anything the so-called progressive “democrats have done that’s positive for this country lately? NOTHING except damage our country and cause confusion and embarrassment. The “conservative democrats sat down with republicans many decades and worked things out. The saying that “those who don’t stand for something will follow anything. We have friends on both sides and we still love each other and get along.

  8. I totally agree with you Mr. Jones. Biden and the Democrats took a hard left turn driven simply by their hatred for President Trump. They’re still obsessed with him. Biden promised to be a uniter. He’s divided Americans even further. All he had to do was keep Trump’s policies in place and we would have prospered. But no, he and the Dems couldn’t have that all because they hate Trump. I don’t think the moderate Democratic voters got what they wanted in Biden and I hope they will no longer support the Party that he now represents.

    • I am with you Mr. Jones and Gman.
      The Biden major policy decisions of:
      1) windmills over our own oil with the result of soaring home and auto gas prices, while reserves are severely depleted to fend off political calamity at the mid-terms is so SELF DESTRUCTIVE to our economy and national security;
      2) the chaos of Bidens open border policy through elimination of the Migrant Protection Protocols, thus allowing millions of undocumented people into our neighborhoods, while strengthening drug cartels ability to carrying out terrorist type death and destruction on our weakest citizens via the fentanyl explosion and even worse, the compounded effect on exploited children in the illicit sex trades both here and in Mexico is REPREHENSIBLE.

      I don’t understand how anyone with a ounce of Faith can support destroying our youth and our economy with these two Biden policy decisions. And even crazier two policy decisions that can be easily be reversed, which I believe Clinton would of reversed had he made them policy early in his first term.

      I just don’t understand this new Democratic Party, they are so self-destructive everywhere you turn….

      • Biden:
        “I want you to look at my eyes. I guarantee you, I guarantee you we’re going to end fossil fuels,” he said in New Castle, New Hampshire.”

        “No more subsidies for the fossil fuel industry,” Biden said. “No more drilling, including offshore. No ability for the oil industry to continue to drill, period,” Biden said of his energy policies if he won the presidency. “It ends.”

        Nuff said.

      • Hiya LuckyGuy–I have been pondering your puzzlement, asking how anyone with an ounce of faith can support progressive Democratic policies (my wording).

        Of course I can only speak for myself (although I think some of the more hopeful commenters share my frame of mind; or will at least comprehend it!).

        Okay. Holy scripture tells me, “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink…do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.’

        Hence, I am not in favor of closing our borders to refugees and asylum seekers, desperately in need of our assistance, because drug dealers and sex traffickers will enter with them. (I imagine they will manage to end up in our cities regardless.) The charity of the faithful is not based on meritocracy. Let our good overcome the evil.

        At home, we can overcome by giving hope to citizens–affordable education, jobs with a living wage and benefits, socialized healthcare, equity and justice for everyone, especially those marginalized…yes, progressive Dem. ideas, I daresay.

        People of faith know we HAVE to find a way to care for one another. And we believe it is possible.

        And no, our goal is not to be “self-destructive”. We want EVERYONE to flourish! To me, that is one of the first lessons I learned from my faith.

        Namaste

        • Hi ya Sweet Suz – I never said I was in favor of closing our borders to refugees and asylum seekers, but that said, I want to know who is here and why and for how long with a orderly process. Not this complete chaos we have placed on the border states and cities the past couple years.

          I’ve worked closely with this crowd for 20+ years and can tell you the majority are here to build personal wealth quicker than they can in the homeland from which they came. They send their cash home to take care of family and have a house built that is paid for for when they return.

          Then there are the bad guys. How many would you like to have delivered to your doorstep so you can enlighten them with your faith? I’m sure you will have a warm place for them to sleep in your cozy place. Tomorrow?

          Peace.

          • And also with you, LuckyGuy (thank you for your sincere “Peace”! I normally get the snarky “Kumbaya”).

            The other thing I hear a lot is a version of your “How many would you like to have delivered to your doorstep…?”.

            Frankly, I am not financially able to open my home to others. Nor am I qualified to assist anyone with legal or social guidance. I can, thankfully, support organizations set up to do just that.

            As I have mentioned before, Assumption House on the TX border is one of my favorites.

            Unless of course by “…a warm place for them to sleep in your cozy place” you are referring to our country…by all means! I would love for us to see that they are given assistance and a place in our society.

            And yes, that aid should also be extended to our own citizens in need. Charity is not a competition. We are bigger than that. We are children of our one God who makes the sun shine on the good and bad people alike and sends rain to the just and unjust.

            Keep the faith!

          • YES! Thank you again, LuckyGuy, my friend! The Annunciation House in El Paso.

            Not easy to keep up with Our Lady–she is always up to something cool!

          • Sorry – keep posting in the wrong string….

            No problem! FYI – El Peso’s LARGEST refugee shelter closed in August 2022 (Casa del Refugiado) as they were overrun by Biden’s open border policy.

          • Me Again, LuckyGuy—I appreciate the information.

            I do try to stay informed on the issues (in this case, the harrowing situation at the southern border). I try to grasp the enormity of the problem and the monumental challenges involved.

            May I say that without my aforementioned faith, I would no doubt lose hope for a solution completely; or perhaps become pragmatic and overly prudent.

            As it is, I still maintain that personally and as a country, we simply cannot abandon our fellow human beings to their fate. We cannot turn them back to the perils they have left.

            I trust that other people of faith (or none whatever, but simply good will) would agree that we ought to follow the example of the groups we mentioned. That we do all we can, for as many as we can, for as long as we can.

            Rev. Raphael Warnock reminds us, “A vote is a prayer about the kind of world we want to live in.” That is why I vote in support of progressive Democratic policies. And yes. I’m the first to admit–it takes a lot of faith. (Not to mention hope and charity, as well!).
