Someone sent me a clip of an influential Democrat claiming that Republicans were behind the “Defund the Police” movement. For those in the know, it was a HUGE lie that should have been reported on ad nauseum and debunked by fact checkers. However, the tepid rebuke was slow in coming. It made me wonder, who are the fact checkers that the public relies on to verify media stories? Can they be trusted? More often than not, no.

The Week In Podcasts: Freedom, Marxism and Race in America

This week I posted a new episode and made a guest appearance on another podcast. Hmm… I’m starting to get the hang of this podcast thing. If you like what I’m doing and want to experience more of my content, just reply back with a kind comment or send money. (Tips are always appreciated.) – Jim

Things I Think About Podcast

Are Black People Free in America? (An interview with “Tree of Logic”)

Are Black people free in America? If not, what enslaves them? Is it systemic racism? Is it political affiliation? Or is it a lack of cultural accountability? In this episode, Jim Stroud chats with “Tree,” the YouTube sensation from the show – Tree of Logic.

The conversation is lively and the topics ebb and flow around racism. For example, what determines true blackness in America? Just how rampant is liberal hypocrisy? What about “boogee” blacks in search of a struggle to identify with? And will racism ever go away when there is so much money and power to gain from it? The time flew by on this episode and as serious as the subject matter was, you could not tell from all the laughing. Tune in for a very, very interesting episode.

Dems are pitting the RINOs against Marjorie Taylor Greene in an effort to manipulate them – The Democrats are calling on Kevin McCarthy to reign in Marjorie Taylor Greene, claiming that she’s a danger to their lives. They claim that her rhetoric will lead to a repeat of January 6th… despite the fact that it was organized by the FBI. Either way, this is a strategic move by the Dems to force the RINOs to either join them or fully embrace Team Trump’s America First Agenda.

Voter ID Laws are NOT racist. This is why.

I am rebooting “The Jim Stroud Show,” my YouTube series from back in the day. Previously, my focus was on HR related issues. It later expanded to emerging technology and culture. My last video was a year old. (Time flies.) In my returning episode, I tackle the supposition that Voter ID laws are racist and the hoopla surrounding GA House Bill 531 which Democrats see as an attack on our democracy while Republicans view it as a common sense effort to fight voter fraud. Where are you on the issue? I share my thoughts.

But wait! That’s not all…

Curiously enough, as I was preparing this email, I stumbled across tweets of Burgess Owens. If you live in Utah, likely you recognize his name. I think a couple of his most recent tweets match my sentiments exactly.

In a recent podcast I asked the question, “Does Joe Biden have dementia?” Turns out I was not the only person to have the same concern. Rasmussen Reports detailed the survey responses.

More than six weeks since his inauguration, President Biden still hasn’t held his first White House press conference, and half of voters are worried about his ability to do the job. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 52% of Likely U.S. Voters say they are concerned that Biden has not held a press conference, including 37% who are Very Concerned. Twenty-four percent (24%) say they’re Not Very Concerned and 22% are Not At All Concerned.

Recent actions of President Joe Biden are not doing much to assuage those feelings. Here are a few recent examples that hint at his (alleged) cognitive decline.

This was on March 2, 2021.

The happened on March 8, 2021.

And this one from March 9, 2021.

Sean Hannity made a video comparing the Joe Biden of a few years ago (2012-2016) with the Biden of today. The comparison is quite startling.

Biden’s political opponents are using his (alleged) decline to lampoon some of his decisions, such as focusing the military on making “Maternity Flight Suits” which I suppose, is in case pregnant women are sent into combat. (Does this make sense to you? Just asking.)

In Townhall, “Matt Gaetz Wonders If a Transition from Biden to Harris Is Already Underway.” To quote the article:

On Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” host Maria Bartiromo and Florida GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz made some keen observations about the Biden administration that has some people questioning who’s really in charge over at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. 

Bartiromo asked the Florida Republican whether a transition may be already underway, given President Biden’s avoidance of the press while Vice President Kamala Harris meets with international leaders such as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and French President Emmanuel Macron.

“What is going on?” Bartiromo asked. “Are we getting ready for some kind of a transition?” 

You have to wonder whether or not the transition to Harris has already begun,” said Gaetz. “Joe Biden’s had more nap time than he’s had questions from reporters. And you’re right. While the Middle Kingdom grows more ambitious in their goals, we are still toiling away in the Middle East. Joe Biden has had more attacks on Syria than he’s had press conferences.”

Florida GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz is not the only one to speculate this. Big League Politics reported on March 9, 2021:

Former Trump White House advisor and Breitbart editor [Steve Bannon] warned of a pending transition to Kamala Harris as President last week, pointing to the neoliberal corporatist’s high profile within the Biden administration and Biden’s seemingly worsening cognitive decline.

Click here to watch Steve Bannon share his predictions.

And President Joe Biden himself referred to his VP as “President-Elect” back in December 2020. Hear it for yourself here:

So, will we see a Harris Presidency soon? I think so. I predict by the Summer of 2021. I have nothing to base that on, just a hunch. Time will tell if I’m right. I take no pleasure in my prediction either way. And to be fair, this is not the first time people have questioned Joe Biden’s mental acuity. I’ll close out with this clip from a decade ago.

Thank you for reading. Please share this with your network. Cheers.

How do you fire someone who no longer works for you?

NOTE: At some point, before bed, I read through 50+ news sources and share my findings here. If you like it, share it. If you don’t, share it. Follow my blog now to support my work or to find new reasons to complain about it. My opinions are my own. All tips are welcome. And if you have not already, help spread the message that people should be judged by the content of their character and not the color of their skin.

How do you fire someone who no longer works for you?

How do you fire someone who no longer works for you? You impeach them. Essentially, that is what some are trying to do to President Trump. Is it constitutional? Some people do not think so. I think its vindictive and I think the efforts will spark a major backlash from American citizens. How will that manifest? I predict new political parties will form as old parties waiver, more opposing voices will be silenced and the fabric of our nation will be torn asunder; unless something changes and soon.

It seems to me that there are two major parties in the United States. A bi-partisan group who believe in the traditional rule of law (Democrats and Republicans: Unity Party #1) and a bi-partisan group that believes progress occurs when all opposition is silenced and united under their belief system. (Again, Democrats and Republicans: Unity Party #2). The more I notice the divide, the more cynical I am about our political system enduring in its latest incarnation.

The official narrative is that impeachment is necessary because President Trump allegedly incited the violence at the Capital. CNN reported things this way:

“The US Capitol is once again secured but four people are dead — including one woman who was shot — after supporters of President Donald Trump breached one of the most iconic American buildings, engulfing the nation’s capital in chaos after Trump urged his supporters to fight against the ceremonial counting of the electoral votes that will confirm President-elect Joe Biden’s win.”

However before and during the cries and attempts at impeachment, various news reports (and video footage) have surfaced disputing the narrative echoed ad nauseum in the mainstream.

I would think that after so many accounts (and I did not list them all) of contrary evidence proving President Trump did not incite his followers to storm the Capital would bring proceedings (which may not be constitutionally valid) to a halt until further investigation. Unfortunately, Washington operates under a different paradigm. The consensus for some is “I feel he should be punished. So, truth be damned.”

As a result, House Republicans and House Democrats (Unity Party #1) pushed forward with Impeachment. A list of the Republicans who supported President Trump’s impeachment can be found here, in case you’re curious. There were a few Democrats who voted against impeachment or simply voted – present. (Unity Party #2) The website “Heavy” talked about them here; again for the curious. (Umm… probably include these people too.)

Today, the Senate weighed in, although Harvard Law professor emeritus and lifelong Democrat Alan Dershowitz said that the Senate lacked legal authority to move ahead. Here’s a quote:

“But the case cannot come for trial in the Senate because the Senate has rules, and the rules would not allow the case to come to trial until – according to the majority leader – until 1 p.m. on Jan. 20, an hour after President Trump leaves office,” he told Sunday Morning Futures host Maria Bartiromo.

“And the Constitution specifically says, ‘The President shall be removed from office upon impeachment.’ It doesn’t say the former president. Congress has no power to impeach or try a private citizen, whether it be a private citizen named Donald Trump or named Barack Obama, or anyone else. The jurisdiction is limited to a sitting president, and so there won’t be a trial.”

Nevertheless, impeachment was introduced to the Senate floor and this happened. I quote Reuters:

Forty-five Senate Republicans backed a failed effort on Tuesday to halt former President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial, in a show of party unity that some cited as a clear sign he will not be convicted of inciting insurrection at the Capitol.

Republican Senator Rand Paul made a motion on the Senate floor that would have required the chamber to vote on whether Trump’s trial in February violates the U.S. Constitution.

The Democratic-led Senate blocked the motion in a 55-45 vote. But only five Republican lawmakers joined Democrats to reject the move, far short of the 17 Republicans who would need to vote to convict Trump on an impeachment charge that he incited the Jan. 6 Capitol assault that left five people dead.

“It’s one of the few times in Washington where a loss is actually a victory,” Paul later told reporters. “Forty-five votes means the impeachment trial is dead on arrival.”

Will that be enough to stop Unity Party #2? I hope so but, I doubt it. In closing, some people say that President Trump was so evil that he should not be allowed to run again in the future. Isn’t that for the American people to decide and not for elites to mandate? Just asking.

Russia, Russia, Russia was a lie and they knew it on day one.

This is bombshell today. Imagine if it was released umm… 4 years ago!!! To quote Just the News

“Four days before the FBI secured a surveillance warrant against him in fall 2016, Trump campaign adviser Carter Page repeatedly knocked down the key allegations at the heart of the Russia collusion investigation while talking to a government informant who was wearing a wire.

Page’s unwitting statements of innocence to informer Stefan Halper were never shared with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court before it approved four warrants authorizing a full year of surveillance of Page’s communications.

Page’s exculpatory statements were kept from the American people for four years until President Trump declassified them on his final day in office last week. They were obtained by Just the News.

“The core lie is that I met with these sanctioned Russian officials, several of which I never even met in my entire life, but they said that I met them in July,” an FBI transcript quotes Page as telling Halper during an Oct. 17, 2016 interaction at Halper’s farm in Northern Virginia.

Makes me wonder what else was held back from the American public or simply stalled indefinitely. One thing I do know, thanks to recently declassified papers, is that the FBI slow-walked investigations into the Clinton campaign and clearly showed her candidacy favoritism (to put it lightly).

Susan Rice is the first female President?

Former acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell said that, based on President Joe Biden’s initial executive actions, he believes someone else is actually setting the agenda — Susan Rice.

Grenell raised eyebrows earlier this month when he first said he believes that Rice, who was President Obama’s UN ambassador and national security adviser and is now serving as Biden’s domestic policy director, is calling the shots in the current administration.

Umm… How is this not racism?

Cornell University is mandating flu shots for students, but not if you’re Black. I quote Campus Reform:

Students at Cornell University can use their status as a “person of color” to be exempt from the university’s flu vaccine requirement.

“Students who identify as Black, Indigenous, or as a Person of Color (BIPOC) may have personal concerns about fulfilling the Compact requirements based on historical injustices and current events,” explains Cornell Health’s vaccine requirement FAQ.

The article goes on to say:

“We recognize that, due to longstanding systemic racism and health inequities in this country, individuals from some marginalized communities may have concerns about needing to agree to such requirements,” explains the page. “For example, historically, the bodies of Black, Indigenous, and other People of Color (BIPOC) have been mistreated, and used by people in power, sometimes for profit or medical gain.”

Hmm… I think they are making the suggestion that black people may see a mandatory flu shot as being the same as the Tuskeegee experiment. If anyone cares, my feelings of this, if you are going to exclude one group from a mandate then exclude all. Giving preferential treatment to any group over another, no matter now well intentioned, can end badly for all concerned.

And since we are on race, let me point out a poignant statement that Bill Maher said recently. I’m not a fan of his but, every blue moon he makes some valid points. Here are a few quotes from this Daily Beast article.

“So, am I wrong to not want to see race all the time? Because that’s how I was brought up. Like that’s what a good liberal does, is you don’t see race. And now, they switched it all around and I’m bad because I don’t see it all the time. Is ubiquity even effective? To make people aware of this issue at every turn?” said Maher.

Further down in the article he said:

“I’m so sympathetic to the cause, but don’t gaslight me, you know?” argued Maher. “And this is what I hear privately from my Black friends: I don’t want to be the focal point. I just want to blend in. I want to have a beer like you. Don’t look at me like I have to make a speech about it, or you have to make a speech about it.

“Is the picture of America that’s presented by the radicals, I would say—Black Lives Matter, some of them, the anti-racists—of America 2021, is it an accurate picture? Because sometimes I’m like, ‘Are they talking about 2021?’” pondered Maher.

Ice Cream and Bagels

Greg Gutfeld roasted the mainstream media and most notably CNN on Monday, for their sycophantic coverage of President Joe Biden and his administration. The Post Millennial reports:

“This weekend, we learned two important things from the white house and they’re enabled us media. Joe’s favorite flavor of ice cream.”

Fox cut to a clip of Jen Psaki, White House Press Secretary, speaking on a livestream for the administration. Psaki said, “When I was in Wilmington before the president was inaugurated, I did ask him for my four year old niece Sariah, and was very curious about what the super ice cream wasn’t his favorite ice cream is chocolate chip.”Gutfeld responded: “Amazing. And we also learned what Hunter Biden had for breakfast bagels. Let’s hope he ate them. Can’t wait for the daily report on regularity. I hope they’re both getting enough fiber, but isn’t it adorable? How fast?”

The difference in Presidential coverage is striking and undeniable. The video clip is worth a look.

Then and always… The Troller-in-Chief

Say what you will, no one can troll the media like Donald Trump. Case in point, he recently created “The Office of the Former President” from which will be responsible for his “correspondence, public statements, appearances and official activities.”

Could this be a jab at the “Office of the President Elect” desk that Joe Biden set up before starting his administration? Could be. Probably. Yeah, I think it is. One thing for certain, he won’t be announcing that he’s the head of the new MAGA Patriot Party. Too bad. I wouldn’t mind seeing a viable 3rd party shaking things up right about now.

Thanks for reading this far. More news and commentary tomorrow.
