Letter to the Editor

One of the often-used techniques of corrupt politicians and their lackeys is to accuse their opponent of the very crimes and immoral behavior of which they themselves are guilty. This has been seen several times recently in the editorial page of this paper. Allegations have been made in a diarrheal diatribe of deceptions, distortions, and deflections without even offering any substantiating evidence for the claims. Perhaps such claims are made to confuse the issue or so that time is spent on refuting the claims and attention is diverted from the egregious behavior of the other party.

Let’s examine the corruption, the policies of death and destruction for this country that embody the Democrat presidential candidate, the entire DNC leadership, and the Democrat platform.

At the last debate, for a few examples on key issues, Biden lied saying that no one lost their insurance under Obamacare, he lied saying he never opposed fracking, he lied saying he didn’t oppose President Trump’s travel ban (his email at the time even called President Trump xenophobic because of the president’s travel ban which greatly reduced our country’s exposure to the Wuhan Flu), he lied when he said that illegal immigrants show up for asylum hearings after being caught and released (according to DHS, 90% do not show up), he lied when he said raising the minimum wage doesn’t hurt anyone (tell that to all the people that have lost their jobs when minimum wage rates were raised, some replaced by automated order and payment machines), he lied when he said that “every single, solitary person when he was going through his impeachment testifying under oath who worked for him said I did my job impeccably.” When there are videos showing that many people involved with impeachment were concerned with Hunter Biden looting Ukraine while his dad, the vice president, was the Obama administration’s point person there. Biden is even on video proudly stating how he forced the President of Ukraine to fire the prosecutor who was looking into the corruption of the company where Hunter Biden was receiving thousands of dollars a month. Remember that he was using one billion of our tax dollars to enforce his demands for his personal gain. 

Indeed, the emails from Hunter Biden’s laptop (which has been authenticated by a demand letter from Biden’s own attorney, Hunter Biden’s business partner ((the recipient of some of the key emails)), and even Hunter Biden’s own signature on the claim ticket, and the Director of National Intelligence’s John Ratcliffe, show solid evidence of high-level corruption by Candidate Biden and his son with regard to Ukraine and China. The entire intelligence community also clearly stated that Sen. Schiff and the Biden campaign were lying about the laptop being part of a “Russian information/disinformation campaign”.

From his interview on the subject: “It’s funny that some of the people who complain the most about intelligence being politicized are the ones politicizing the intelligence,” Ratcliffe said. “Unfortunately, it is Adam Schiff who said the intelligence community believes the Hunter Biden laptop and emails on it are part of a Russian disinformation campaign.” He added: “Let me be clear: the intelligence community doesn’t believe that because there is no intelligence that supports that. And we have shared no intelligence with Adam Schiff, or any member of Congress.”

Remember that it was this same Democrat Senator Schiff that stated time and again that he had seen documented evidence of President Trump’s “Russian collusion”- none of which ever materialized, despite Rep. Pelosi and company spending over 40 mission of our tax dollars to find it.

Candidate Biden’s policies of ending our fossil fuel industry would lead to extremely high gas and energy prices since we now obtain about 80% of our energy from fossil fuels. Contrast that with the policies of President Trump which have led our country to be energy independent for the first time since President Carter. Indeed, we are now a net energy exporter!

The reduction in regulations on small businesses, the decrease in taxes for all Americans, the adding of choice for our healthcare, the protection of the integrity of our countries borders, the requirement for our allies to shoulder their fair share of their own defense expenses, and the defeat of ISIS have all been major accomplishments of President Trump that have made our country stronger while maintaining our liberties.

President Trump has shown great restraint, and his recognition of federal nature of our government. Rather than merely mandate what policies each state would follow with respect to the Wuhan Flu, for a one-size-fits-all of totalitarian control that the Democrats advocate, he respected the rights of state governors and city mayors to make and carry out their policies, and supplied aid to them when asked. He also told them that when they allow the criminal and terrorist elements in their jurisdictions to destroy the businesses and homes that they should not expect the rest of the American taxpayers to foot the bill for the clear dereliction of their responsibility to their citizens. He only intervened when asked with national guard support and only used U.S. Marshals to protect federal property, as is proper for the president of a republic. Tyrants and dictators would never behave with the restraint he has shown.

It has been the Democrat governors and mayors that have usurped authority to control the people of their jurisdictions-sending sick patients to nursing homes, leading to almost half of the deaths from the Wuhan Flu, locking down businesses-except for their own personal use- since they view themselves above the dictates they make. They are the tyrants to be avoided and never to be placed in a position of authority over citizens of this country!
