During his recent trip to America, Volodymyr Zelensky and his wife had dinner at the White House. Afterwards, it was discovered that two place settings of the James Monroe  silverware had gone missing.





STAND UP FOR SILVERWARE!


Soul Selling



Today, America’s administrative state appears so corrupt that anyone achieving a position of power must have sold their soul dozens of times.


And why is this so? Simple … no one is held accountable … except on Trump-ed up charges.


When was the last resignation rather than bend to corruption … Elliot Richardson?



STAND UP TO CORRUPTION!


A Reminder


Pilgrim, with all the back and forth surrounding the slow-walk of the Hunter Biden investigation by then-Deputy AG David Weiss … that allowed the statute of limitations to run out on Hunter not paying $1.5 mullion of taxes … and Deputy AG Leslie Wolfe’s outrageous interference in the investigation … a whole lot took place under AG Bull Barr’s watch.

Bill Barr is no better than Merrick Garland … only more devious.



STAND UP TO BILL BARR!

Apt Analogy

 


Nothing is perfect. Although free-market capitalism has a small share of barnacles, it is so good at generating wealth and well being that it sails on no matter how roiled the waters. 


Afterward: Far more debilitating and dangerous than its few barnacles, our capitalistic ship of state suffers from the anarchists and Marxist’s opening wide all the sea cocks … trying to scuttle it. Can you name a few of them Pilgrim?



STAND UP FR CAPITALISM!


Daemons



To many, Donald Trump is an American daemon. To me there are — Anthony Fauci, George Soros, Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden, Randi Weingarten, John Kerry, Sam Bankman-Fried, Al Gore, Christopher Wray, Hillary Clinton, David Weiss, Adam Schiff, John Brennen, Mark Zuckerberg, Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, James Comey, Jack Smith, Bill Gates, Merrick Garland, Jane Fonda, Al Sharpton and quite a few more lesser lights.


(It’s easier to name the bad guys than the good guys … not an encouraging sign.)

Ken Paxton’s Texas Trial

 



Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has been acquitted by the Texas Senate on all of the 16 articles of his impeachment … see: USA Today recap.


Therefore, he will not be expelled from office. I kinda wished he would have been found guilty on at least one count so I could be proud of him … as he would have demonstrated that Republicans can be just as sleazy as Democrats.

Strategic Thinking

 


Pilgrim, I hope you agree with me that our Libs are not very good strategic thinkers on the global stage. But we both must concede that they are masters of such political thinking.


Which brings me to the question of all the recent puzzling woke focus on transgender normalizing. Could it be that this is paving the way for Michelle Obama’s running for president in ‘24 after they deep-six Joey Mumbles?

Grigich Hills

 


Well over 30 years ado while taking a group tour of Napa Valley, we stopped in at the award-winning Grgich Hills winery. Luckily old man Grgich was there and stopped to talk to us. We asked what was his secret for making great wine, he replied, “Don’t keep things too clean.”


Many years later, when traveling in Croatia, I learned Miljenko Grgich had returned to his native land … and surprisingly was still alive at 95. He obviously can’t still be so. RIP.

Trans Verse


There was a woman named Grace,

Who grew some hair on her face.

When it turned into a beard.

A man’s name for girl lovers to speak.

She unfortunately decided on Chuck

‘Cause he never ever could perform.
