I know I seem to like to beat up Fox news lately. I can’t help it, they are doing a lot of stupid shit. A guest on Fox Newsroom this morning said that President 66Trump needs to stop throwing a temper tantrrum about the election and take care of business. Really!! That is wrong ion so many levels. He has done more for this country since the election, than most presidents do in a year. He is standing up for this country. The current bill bring presented before him, is so full of pork I thought I was reading a magazine about pig farming. $600 a person, really!! When we are giving billions to the rest of the world. What ever happened to America first. No other country does that. They all take care of themselves first, than if their is anything left than they help other countries. He is right to veto the bill. Pelosi knows it is a BS bill, why else is see working on a standalone covid bill?
For all those people who think Trump missed the date for the relief bill. It is called a pocket veto. Now Pelosi will do what she was supposed to do, just put a bill through for covid relief, not a free for all for the rest of the world. Frankly I don’t want to have my tax payer dollars funding gender studies in Pakistan. He is doing the right thing. So all for you nay sayers shut your pie holes.

If you get a follower or request friend request from Randy Landry it is okay. I am gradually switching my account to a page. Facebook doesn’t make anything easy. I have to invite each of my friends individually to have them accept the new page. Once this happens I can go above the 5000 limit that I have hit. You think all you would have to do is switch your account to a page and everybody would be switched over. Basically nothing has really changed. But no they are real jerks in Facebook. The problem is I have a lot of time invested in Facebook, otherwise I would simply switch to Parler.
I post 2 articles a week on my blog common-sense-in-america.com. On Tuesdays and Fridays at around 1:oo am. They cover pretty much every topic you can think of that involves current events and how historical events and characters relate to todays society. I currently have 252 articles posted. They range from 1 page to many pages. Many of the articles are updated as new data comes in. One article is entitled “The Corona Virus Exposed” I as you would expect update this one routinely. I also have written several other articles about the virus and how to protect yourself. But if you want a thorough discussion on the virus the one I listed is it. I without tooting my own horn believe it is the most all encompassing single article on the subject in the net. in my articles I start with a premise or idea and I let the data lead me where it wills. Usually what happens is that I know a little about the subject and the more I investigate it, the information leads me into an entirely different path and unexpected conclusion. The blog has 3 separate headings “Home” which is every article on my list organized by date of posting or updates. It is an easy way to just peruse the site. There is and “About” section which of course is about me and my creds. The third section the “List of Categories”. You simply hover your cursor over it and a drop down menu will appear with all my subjects. Just click on the subject of interest and all the articles will appear. At the bottom of each article there is a collection of hyperlinks for all the related articles. So you have a couple ways of navigating through the blog. You are free to leave comments, but please keep them civil. I do not make any money on these articles, nor am I trying to gain any advanced degrees. I do give credit to the sources that I use, but if your are looking for a scholarly posting with full footnotes this is not your blog. But having said that, I do my utmost to ensure that all my postings are accurate. Happy reading. I will routinely post this message so that new readers will have the same information. It is my plan to start an all audio podcast in the new year and eventually do a video one. But who knows.

So what do you think about the Covid relief bill President Trump signed? I know President Trump was holding on for $2000 for each American as opposed to the $600 the relief bill calls for. The problem is that the bill also was tied to the budget as well. If he refused to sign it, the government would have had to close down. This bill is a nasty piece of work. Pelosi and the Democrats are not playing fair. Instead of having separate bills where they could have fine tuned them and maybe eliminate some of the pork, they put them all together. So it is an all or none deal. So now we are stuck throwing billions of dollars overseas for basically BS, while tens of thousands of businesses are closing for good around the country. We need a national referendum to eliminate all the politicians in Congress, both The Senate and The House of Representatives. This would eliminate all the corrupt politicians. Then we need to change up the system. Make both houses have 4 year terms, with a 4 term limit set on them. The 2 year term is simply too short, all they do in the House is run for office. The six year term is too long for the Senate, people forget what the politician’s campaigned for when they ran for office, The Supreme Court justices should be evaluated every ten years for job performance by their peers, to see if they are fulfilling their duties and are protecting the constitution. If not they should be removed. We also need to set a 9 justice limit to prevent court packing. Our government is no longer responsive to the people. We also need to limit the campaign contributions to just $1000 total per person or business to the candidate. We can’t have billionaires buying our politicians. What do you guys think?
I can’t believe California. They wonder why their covid numbers are high. They are forcing families, sometimes with 3 and 4 generations to be together all the time. Kids can’t go to school. Everything is closed. I know at my hospital we are getting 2 and 3 people in from one household. Keep the parks and outdoor dining open, open schools. California should have the lowest numbers because of their climate. The governor and mayors all need to go. Get some people who have some brains in office. It is like firing a gun that is empty over and over again and wondering why the target doesn’t fall down.

Could this be happening? We now have a congressman in the House and a Senator who are going to contest the electoral vote on January 6th. And it turns out that the left may have shot themselves in the ass by not hearing any evidentiary cases on voter fraud. They have been all refused on protocol issues. This leaves it open for debate in the House and the senate, especially that several state legislatures have ruled in favor of President Trump. Trump won more states than Biden, so if it came down to a one vote per state he should theoretically win the election. his would be the biggest upset in history. It would mean that despite all the shenanigans perpetrated by the left, that right still came out the winner. I won’t hold my breath yet. But maybe things are looking up a little.
Does anybody think it is quite curious that as soon as a vaccine rolls out for covid, that a new strain appears? It isn’t any more serious it just spreads easier. What, did they have a race? I think the governmental officials don’t want to loose their power. So now they can bully us around even more with this even scarier virus. So now we have to social distance even more. It is all BS.
A thought for the new year. Remember 9/11? We invaded a country because of what a terrorist organization did. They killed around 3,000 people. So now China, not a terrorist group but the country itself basically through either malfeasance or negligence allowed a virus to escape its country’s borders A virus which killed over 300.000 people and we do nothing? How does that work? It kind of leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

A DAILYWIRE caption “High Percentage Of Frontline Workers Refusing To Take The COVID-19 Vaccine, Many Citing Political Reasons” “Large percentages of health care workers in multiple states have said they would not take the COVID-19 vaccine, with some citing a distrust of the political machinations behind the timeline of the vaccine’s creation.The New York Post reported Friday that health care works in California, New York City, Ohio, and Texas are refusing to take the vaccine in large numbers. The workers are citing skepticism that the vaccine would work without side effects given how quickly it was developed and approved.” I blame the bad press, social media and unscrupulous politicians for this belief by large portions of our population. I got my first of 2 vaccinations 2 weeks ago. I had no problems what so ever. I plan on getting what I call the booster shot next week. Again I am for seeing no problems. We need to get immunity to this vaccine. Until either everyone gets the virus and builds up an immunity from it or we get vaccinated our lives will never return to any semblance of normalcy. I work in a local ICU as an RN. Covid-19 is no joke. I have seen way too many people die from this scourge. Man-up and get the vaccine. More testing was done for these vaccines than any prior vaccine in our history. Don’t let the timeline scare you. Most of the time involved in previous vaccines was time spent fighting bureaucratic red tape and the FDA. President Trump fast tracked that BS. He also incentivized the development process, so good old capitalism and competition drove its development.

The worst thing the government did was give extra money to hospitals for covid patients. Now everybody that might have had the flu has covid instead. There is just more money in covid patients. I am not however saying that covid is a farce. I have seen way too many people die from covid-19 and resulting complications. Treating covid is a tricky problem, and favorable outcomes hinge on rapid and aggressive treatment. If a patient has the typical symptoms, doctors need to treat it like a covid case to stay ahead of the virus. They can always back off treatments if the test comes back negative. I have taken care of over 150 positive covid patients since the pandemic started in early March. The virus needs to be respected , but not feared. With proper precautions taken, the non infected individual is relatively safe. Transmission numbers increase with the increase in duration of the contact. In cases of incidental contact, especially outdoors, they are relatively benign. Meeting and passing by a person on a hiking trail offers little or no chance of transmission. Viruses are very small, wearing a cotton mask is analogous to using a chain link fence to stop mosquitoes from getting in your house. What cloth masks do do is reduce the force of air produced by a sneeze or cough of an infected individual, thereby reducing the distance the virus can travel. People that social distance at least 6 feet or more are relatively safe even without wearing masks. But I put the caveat, that you are safer outdoors when social distancing than you are indoors. The covid virus can stay suspended in the air for a little while. Typically there is less air circulation indoors than outdoors, duh. So your are safer outdoors. On the subject of the new strain that supposedly is circulating around the country now, I am reserving my opinion for now. Every virus mutates, that is why the you can catch the flu every year. When a virus mutates, it usually involves the receptors on its surface, which is what the immune system and vaccines attach to. So you need a new vaccine or have to get infected again to gain immunity. So my concern is that they are saying that the vaccines will work on the new strain, and their is no difference in the lethality of the virus, however, it is magically spread more easily. And I am finding the timing too convenient. The virus has become weaponized by our governments as the means to maintain high levels of control and leave little remaining freedom for the masses. This new strain is just too convenient for my taste.
Unfortunately, I believe that travel by plane or cruise ship or even train will require a proof of vaccination. I am pretty certain that is the direction we are heading. What I hope is that they keep it optional and not make it mandatory. You can never tell with our government. I really did have much of a choice with my work. I want to stay safe and keep my wife safe as well. But I believe in free will when it comes to your body.

Cloth and fabric masks don’t work. Only N95 marks are effective and they have to be fit tested to your face to know which style or make and size is effective. I have to do a fit test every at my job. I also wear a full face shield when I care for covid patients.
The problem truly arises with people being forced to stay cloistered at home with their families. How many people wear masks when they are at home. It has been estimated that upwards of 70% of the infections occur here. Only 1.5% with restaurants. Has anyone checked to see what the infection rate is in box stores?
Trump is the real deal. That is why he has such diehard supporters. I can’t think of a country under Biden Rule. He needs to pull this off. Even if the democrats don’t want to admit it, I know that the majority of them know that Biden did not win the election. Which means that a majority of our country knows the truth. How can we possibly allow this to happen?
1/5/2021 11:32 AM
I find this absolutely amazing. The DC Mayor called in the National Guard to help handle the Pro Trump Protest. Really!!!!! When earlier last year rioters from Antifa and BLM threatened to destroy DC. They had bricks already to throw at the Police. They tried to knock down the restraining fence that protected the White House. And Trump had to bring in federally controlled National Guardsmen to protect the monuments in DC. He had to do this because the DC Mayor refused to act. What a bunch of BS!
Now the Democrats are saying that the Republicans, by objecting to the electoral certification on the 6th are setting a bad precedent. Even Tom Cotton, who I thought very highly of, said the same thing. Is he a Rhino now as well? Lets do a little time traveling. The Democrats objected to the Electoral vote Certification in 2000, 2004 and 2016. Nothing was said about those being dangerous. When will the double standards end? Tom Cotton thinks that it will embolden the Democrats to destroy the Constitution. Give me a break, they have been trying to destroy the Constitution for the last 12 years.

Trump said a LOT of Crazy Stuff in his Tweets the past Four Years… Let’s examine them: He said: My offices are bugged. He was right. He said: The FBI, CIA, DOJ and the Obama administration were plotting against him. He was right. He said: The media both liberal and social are liars . He labeled them FAKE NEWS. He was right. He said: Russian collision was a hoax. He was right. He said: He could bring manufacturing back. He was right. He said: If we build a wall and manage immigration it will create jobs. He was right. He said: Joe and Hunter got rich off of shady corrupt deals with the Ukraine and China. He was right. He said: new trade deals would be better for the people. He was right. He said: Moving the embassy to Jerusalem would be the right decision. He was right He said: getting us out of un-winnable wars would create peace. He was right. He said the Clintons were corrupt. He was right. And still are! He said: locking up minority’s for decades for non violent offenses was wrong so he changed it. He was right. He said: Jobs are worth way more than welfare so he gave the people jobs. He was right. He said: our government is filled with corrupt people and he will fight to drain the swamp and right the wrongs. He is right. President Trump has been right on just about everything he said. So when he says the election was rigged I’ll bet my life on him being right. 74 million strong Sir, we got your back. #trumpismypresident
I think this is a good thing. The politicians have become too complacent and too removed from their constituents. They have forgotten that they rule at the pleasure of the people. They also need to realize that they need to follow the law. Politicians now think that they are above the law. Maybe they will take a little pause the next time that they pass some BS bill that adversely affects the people. It also shows that the people are watching. Politicians are the representatives of the people and they need to act that way.
The sad thing is that it won’t work, and it only gives Biden a reason to put in place martial law. So I applaud the people that raided the capital building. Without President Trump to support Pence, he is just another swamp creature. Under Trump he learned how to roar, now all he can do is meow.
Can you believe the news. Have they forgotten the Boston Tea Party? It is something to hear Fox News. The only reporters talking are people like Chris Wallace and Juan Williams. They did everything in their power to undermine the President.
1/7/2021 1:07 AM
Did anybody see the videos where guards and police allowed the protesters to get through the barricades at the Capitol building? It certainly looked like it was staged. I really think groups like antifa from the left initiated the rioting there. I am not saying some
overzealous Trump followers did not join in. They were however not the ones who started it. This event was a means to deligitamize the Trump movement and the rest of his presidency.Just like the assasination of poor George Floyd. Where he was the victim of a plot by the left to start the racial riots and protests last year. It was all planed and stage. Now Trump is blocked until the end of his term of office, from social media. They are marginalizing him. He is being blamed for the riots. I also think that Congress used the Capitol riots as an excuse to fast track the final count of the electors. They only protested 2 states, when they had originally planned 6 states. So even if they reversed the count on these 2 states, Arizona and Pennsylvania, Trump would still not have won. President Trump was doomed from the start. The democrats started working on a plan from the very start to make sure he lost his bid for re-election.
Those in the Republican Party who are throwing DT under the bus are the new deplorable. Yes I am using letters to prevent being kicked off FB. I am not sure what is going to happen to our country. I will soon be migrating to Parler. I will keep my blog up, Common-sense-in-america.com. it is a private domain, so I am fairly safe. We need to support our president, he is the only chance we have.
I am impressed on your survivability. You have managed to ride the fence between Trump and the left. Now that he has lost, you have deserted him. You and Tom Cotton could have made a difference. If you would have investigated from the start the election fraud, you would have helped legitimize it. Maybe the Supreme Court would have taken the case. The outcome would have been totally different. Remember the more you give in to the left and radicals, the more they want. You can’t erase your past. You supported Trump and that will never be forgiven. Schumer will not share the senate with you. As soon as DC and Puerto Rico are states, you have lost your bargaining power. Besides your colleagues have deserted Trump, you don’t think they won’t desert you. Your days of power are finite. You made the wrong decision and now you will pay the price.
We are 75 million plus. I am sure it is a lot more, because thousands of ballots were thrown away. We need to remain strong. If we do this, they can’t touch us. That 75 million is misleading, that reflects voters only, there are more than that who can’t vote yet, but still support DT. Our very country is at stake. Our way of life is at stake. We need to remain strong, don’t stop fighting the good fight. Stick up for your rights. Don’t let the left crush you.
Pelosi is crazy. She can’t leave well enough alone. President Trump did not incite a riot. Pence’s inaction caused the riot. He will be out of office in less than 2 weeks. His cabinet is leaving. Just about all of social media has blocked him. And congress is not going to pursue any more laws or acts till Biden takes over. He is basically a paper tiger now. Let him have some peace. She is an evil woman.
So, Twitter has banned DT for life. This is not about what he has done or what they insinuate and think he did, it is about what they fear he will do in the future. They are afraid of him and his 70 plus million followers. They are trying to cancel him. As long as we keep him relevant he will remain relevant. Don’t let them cancel what he stood and still stands for. He gave us everything he had. Show appreciation and never let him die. Keep him in your hearts and minds.
1/9/2021 2:20 AM
Just when I thought Juan Williams on Fox News couldn’t top his most idiotic statement list. When Jessie Waters on the Five asked him if it was good for the country if Trump was impeached. He said yes, just that the timing was bad. Inpeachment should never be the first means of negotiations with a president. Whst has this country come to? Pelosi is the problem hear, not president Trump.
1/9/2021 4:45 AM
Why can’t we get past race? Why should it matter where you were born or what the color of your skin is or even what your gender is. What should matter is what is in your heart and how you treat your fellow man. And yes I am white. So what. I have an Asian wife. I have friends and co-workers from all races. You know what I don’t care what is on the outside, just what is on the inside. Until we can all do this we will never progress as a nation.
Since I am still pissed I mind as well continue on my tirade. I am tired of big tech, special interests and governmental hierarchies telling me what I can write, say and do. We are supposed to be a free society. We can’t even go outdoors without wearing a damn mask. You know what will happen, we will all get the vaccine and some ass like power hungry Fauci will say we still need to wear a mask, especially when we are having sex with strangers. You thought I forgot, humph.
I just read the Twitter reason for banning President Trump. So not only are they preventing him from speaking out on Twitter, they are also reading his mind, and can tell his intentions before he even says them or does them. Since they are so powerful and rich they also have many supernatural powers as well. Kind of reminds me of the Tom Cruise movie Minority Report. Basically they are punishing him for things he hasn’t done yet, but they know he will do them. I am going to discuss this further in my blog over the next few days. Because this is entirely illegal and amoral. Since Twitter is enjoying protection under the U.S. government they have an obligation to follow certain rules, such as freedom of speech. They are violating this, they are also punishing people without do process of the law. They might be a private company, but some of those rights were given up when they tied themselves to the government via article 230.
Everybody is saying the rioting and the incursion in the Capitol building was not justified. It sure was a mess, there were mistakes made on both sides. But when people have exhausted all other avenues, insurrection has been used in the past. Our history is based on this premise. After watching many videos from the 6th, I firmly believed that antifa or an antifa like group fomented the riots. They had black facial covers, and black backpacks. They just wore regular clothes to fit in better.
Pence is going to Biden’s inauguration, I am not sure how he stands with Trump. You can’t trust the news. I know it would not be a good idea for Trump to go to it, because it would be a circus. Even though Biden will not be a legitimate president, It is important that the republican party shows that they can rise above the melee and show some class. While I don’t agree with how Pence handled the final count of the electors, he still was a class act during his four years as VP. he always had his back. He was basically the Ying to Trump’s Yang. I think he helped put the brakes on him a little, as much as that was possible.
1/11/2021 4:32 PM
Letter supposedly written by Pelosi.
Trump did not start this, if you look at the videos you can see that antifa people were there as well. They just were not wearing there all black outfits, but they had their black backpacks and some had body armor. They were all wearing black masks. There is a lot going on, that we don’t know about. This event gives the left the moral high ground, something they have not had for quite some time. Now they are using it to purge DC and impeach Trump again.
1/12/2021 2:32 AM
Mitch McConnell you can kiss all the Democratic ass you like. Chuck Schumer will not share the senate with you. So, show your true colors. Enjoy this term of office. It will be your last if you vote to impeach Trump. Your electorate’s won’t forget how you turned on your president.
1/13/2021 3:39 PM
I just heard that the House Impeached Trump for the second time. I guess they did not learn their lesson the first time. Even Pelosi admitted that they had made a mistake on the first impeachment, but her pride and hatred for Trump prevented her from pulling back. I believe that, like in the first impeachment, this second one is also without basis. If you listened to his speech on the the 6th of January, you would know this. Unfortunately too many of you don’t actually take the time to fact check yourself. The left is making a mistake because, first the more they persecute Trump the brighter and higher his star will shine, and second they are not taking into account his children. Donald Jr. Eric and Ivanka are all polarizing figures unto themselves. When you put the three of them together they have the same draw that their father has. I also believe that every congressman who voted for impeachment in the House, should be removed from office themselves. Because they are using their offices to carry on personal vendettas. They are not doing the work that they were elected to do by their constituents. They are wasting tax payer dollars on these endless attempts to ruin Trump’s Presidency and Legacy. Their efforts will fail in the long run and they will regret their actions, because all corrupt politicians eventually reach an ignobile end.
So now, not only was the whole Capitol incident created to discredit Trump, but his movement as well. It also gave them the excuse to take one more jab at him, ie 2nd impeachment. It also allowed them to lock down DC. So as a result the crowds will be reduced. So now Biden won’t be embarrassed by the incredibly small crowds that would have showed up. This would have made the whole election fraud obvious. Because a presidential candidate who got 80 million votes should be able draw enormous crowds to his inauguration. Pretty devious. You have to give the democrats their due, they don’t miss much. Their only real problem is, they don’t know when to stop. They always overdo it.
