The Inflation Reduction Act is a ruse with an Orwellian name.
One day before federal agents raided Donald Trump’s home, Vice President Kamala Harris acting as tiebreaker for a deadlocked vote, helped the senate pass the $700 billion Inflation Reduction Act (IRA). Among the bill’s planned expenditures are billions earmarked for battling climate change, as well as increasing the staff of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). On Friday, August 12, the House signed on too. Despite the promises and propaganda being touted by Democrats and other supporters of the IRA, this sweeping piece of spending – massive in scale and scope – is simply the latest chess move in a sinister game where the radical transformation of the United States is taking precedence over solving a looming economic crisis.
The U.S. economy is at a dangerous tipping point. Forty-year high inflation is causing the average American household immense strain and small businesses to fold. Interest rate hikes, while necessary to counter out-of-control fiscal spending, are propelling us toward an even deeper recession. Rather than trying to tame inflation, those responsible for championing the IRA are using the same fiscally irresponsible approach that has contributed to our current economic woes. Deceptive legislation aimed at inflation and climate change will combat neither. Politicians are cheating us again and we are letting them. If you haven’t been paying attention, our freedoms cramp at the government’s style and those freedoms are under attack. At every turn, those in power circumvent or simply ignore the freedoms granted by the Constitution of the United States to impose what they perceive to be their superior intellect and virtue on the rest of us. This bill is another example of a shady backroom deal designed by people beholden to a donor class who think they know what you need and corporations who never had your best interests at heart.
To some degree, our public policy has always shaped our personal finances, but the malfeasance at work today is vastly different than anything we have previously encountered. The things that safeguard our way of life – our prosperity, our ability to provide an equitable standard of living for ourselves and our families – are being derailed by people who crave power and want to control the rest of us.
When does it stop? How do we fix the problems when the people who caused the problems are still making decisions for the rest of us? The answer is not as complicated as it may seem. Stop electing officials who don’t believe in the American way! Trump’s America First policy is a winning policy and putting our interests first doesn’t mean we can’t still be an integral part of the global community. America has always lead the way, but now we are lagging.
The New Left wants you to believe we live in a world that doesn’t require borders, police, guns, or a strong military. They want you to believe in a system that rewards everyone, especially those who don’t try to be productive. They want you to believe that violent criminals need mental health programs instead of prison or incarceration. They want you to believe that gender is a construct but at the same time expect you to shut up and “follow the science” as it relates to everything else. They want you to believe their policies work while asking you to ignore the facts and the statistics that say otherwise. They want you to own nothing – and still be happy!
The unending persecution of Donald Trump is wrong and without merit. It was wrong the first time and it has been wrong all along – but never has it felt more wrong than this moment. This is the moment when the duplicity at work within the New Left movement finally revealed just how far some will go to destroy the former U.S. president – a man they see as both a dangerous political opponent and something less than human.
Anyone who believes the raid conducted on President Trump’s private residence in the early morning hours of August 8th was about the retrieval of “classified documents” has their head in the clouds. What this is about – what this has always been about – is the complete annihilation of the biggest political threat the Democrats have faced in the modern era. Now we know for certain the current administration is using government branches of power to harass and destroy political enemies. You cannot commit crimes looking for crimes. This should NOT be happening in America.
Trump’s opponents say no one is above the law. This is true, but so far, the FBI and DOJ only appear interested in applying the law in one direction – against Donald Trump. When Secretary of State Hillary Clinton used an unauthorized private server to house all the emails (including classified materials) that she didn’t want on her government server, the FBI didn’t raid her home in Chappaqua, New York. The legacy media, refusing to concede that Clinton had even run afoul of the law, called the investigation that came later a witch-hunt, something deeply rooted in misogyny. Unfortunately, Donald Trump was never to be treated with the same reverence as Hillary Clinton – or even Hunter Biden.
As more and more details about the raid, the unusual search warrant used to facilitate it, and the judge that issued it begin to emerge, We the People must demand transparency. We can’t allow this never-ending persecution of Donald Trump to continue under a cloak of secrecy and collusion. If we are to apply the law to everyone, the law must first be applied to those who oversee and use it in a prosecutorial fashion. Whether the warrant was justified remains to be seen (we’ll give you one guess), but final questions continue to be raised as to whether our government institutions are as honest and impartial as we think and should expect.
It seems impossible for Trump haters to even consider that there is a real man behind the personality, a man who truly loves and wants good things for America. It is time to move past this narrative being pushed by those on the Left that Trump must be stopped at all costs. History is littered with men who robbed their countries and their people of opportunity. Donald Trump is not one of those men.
ANALYSIS/OPINION: Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida signs the “Stop Woke Act.” This bill prohibits discrimination and it states that ALL history must be taught in schools. Teachers will not be permitted to distort history to serve their ideological goals. Civics, character, merit and mental health will now be taught.
Many leftists try to use the excuse that there are no courses actually named “Critical Race Theory” or “CRT” in our children’s curriculum, and that therefore it is not being taught. That is not the case.
As DeSantis points out, enumerating the principles of CRT and injecting them into our children’s education is not education. That is indoctrination. CRT is not only being taught to our children, but to our adult workforce as well under the guise of “workforce training.”
Big corporations like Apple and Google are teaching people that all Americans are raised to be racist!!
Walt Disney even incorporated a white privileged checklist into their training!! Under this new bill, things of this nature will be a total violation of our civil rights.
So, in contrast to CRT, this bill encourages teachers to inspire their students with stories of overcoming adversity no matter what your race or the color of your skin.
From the moment we walked into this one-of- a-kind coffee shop, we were impressed with every kind of Trump memorabilia you could imagine. From the buttons, coins, hats, flags, magnets, coffee cups, jewelry, life-size cut-outs, to an actual replica of the Oval Office where you can sit and have your picture taken, we were thrilled! Even Governor Ron DeSantis was there!
The 45 Blend (President Trump) can be purchased in ground or whole bean coffee and the 16 blend (President Lincoln) is a lighter roast in both forms as well. The ice cream is delicious and the donuts are huge!
There is even an Oval Office set where patrons can pose and have their pictures taken!
There is a “Hall of Honor” which is proudly signed by hundreds and hundreds of our military veterans and first responders.
Conservative Grounds is creating a network of places where Conservative Camaraderie can take place without the scourge of Liberalism. As they grow so will their outreach of conservative values and their conservative donations the company will make.
Your purchases help support the Ground’s fight to support Conservative values along with Conservative Causes. A portion of every dollar goes to support Veterans and Causes that Conservatives believe in.
Please stop by if you are in the area and show your support!
As many of you may know, we at KTJ Nation are huge fans of a man named Tom Woods. Tom is a true Patriot, always fighting for our freedoms and educating people about truths while debating the leftist lunacy. He has now teamed up with Praxis, an alternative to the indoctrination universities that exist currently.
Even before Covid, there were ridiculous events happening on college campuses. We all have heard of them. However, college ridiculousness combined with Covid lunacy has produced some very scary results.
For instance, universities in California are demanding both the initial shots and the booster for all students, and are threatening those who do not comply. Penalties range from having their WiFi shut off to not being able to participate in campus activities, to outright expulsion.
A professor at Loyola Marymount University blamed “white supremacy” (which does not exist) for Will Smith slapping Chris Rock.
Other professors have been saying they hope for the death of Clarence Thomas, one of the best justices in the history of the Supreme Court.
A brief scan of headlines at The College Fix brings up “Case Western Reserve University Offers Paid Social Justice Fellowships,” “Student Newspaper Deletes Article Because It Included Too Many Quotes From White Students,” and “Students, Professors Demand Scholar Be Allowed to Call on ‘White, Male, or Someone Privileged’ Last.”
Not so long ago, things were bad but not quite as bad as they are now. The history department had its propagandists, but it also had genuinely serious scholars.
In this day and age we cannot imagine being inside academia. We’d have to fight every psychotic left-wing obsession in the universe, on top of the sudden and arbitrary restrictions and vaccine requirements.
The universities, which supposedly consist of our best and brightest, are where the most draconian and irrational COVID restrictions were imposed.
And of course they are where the dumbest and most destructive social theories, and theories of law, are to be found.
We always knew if ever these ideas (along with the intolerance of opposing views that we associate with our universities) were to start creeping out of academia and into society, we’d be in trouble.
Unfortunately, it’s looking like that time has come.
We can understand why many parents wouldn’t want to send their children into these nuthouses.
But what else are they supposed to do? Not get the official credential, and have to suffer with an inferior job?
Well, it turns out there is a genuine alternative.
It’s called Praxis. It’s an apprenticeship program whereby a college-age person gets on-the-job experience with a startup company, followed by a guaranteed job offer.
A bunch of young people who listen to the Tom Woods show, have raved about it and done really well. If you’re a parent (or a young person) who would consider a college alternative like this, we recommend watching their presentation and making up your mind.
The notion that America may be in the stages of decline is not a new idea. Several intellectuals have argued that our decline began shortly after the end of World War II, although most agree the most significant shift occurred sometime in the early seventies when the rise of academic Marxism, extremist political economies, and critical cultural studies began tearing at the fabric of American ideals. In 2016, when Donald Trump selected “Make America Great Again” as his campaign mantra, the implication became clear to generations of Americans who had not been privy to the subject of American decline as academic discourse. America was no longer great, at least not as great as it had once been, and measures would need to be taken to restore our economic stability, national security, and manufacturing and energy independence. And if Trump’s stunning presidential win showed us anything it’s that even when political roadblocks are overcome and new ideas are installed, implementing policy changes in a now corrupt and broken system not controlled by the people for the people but by career politicians, special interest groups, bureaucrats, media companies, and the super-rich, was going to be an uphill battle.
How did we get here? And is Donald Trump’s dream to “Make America Great Again” even fully possible in a country that elected a man like Joe Biden to commandeer our future and our interests and the interests of our children? When younger and younger generations of Americans are being taught to believe the American experiment has outlived its usefulness and it’s time for a radical reboot, how can we expect to reverse course if we can’t convince our own citizens that what we had and have is still the most viable path forward? These are polarizing questions and there are no simple answers, but what has become more and more clear is that neither Republicans nor Democrats seem 100% capable of running the show.
While thousands die and war rages in Ukraine, and China seriously contemplates a similar invasion of Taiwan, and our allies ponder their geopolitical futures as well as the liberty and safety of their citizens, we continue to fight amongst ourselves. It has been 156 years since the Civil War ended and nearly 70 years since the beginning of the Civil Rights Movement, yet we continue to promote this idea that America has not evolved at all. This idea of an active and pervasive inherent racism or prejudice, once solely reserved for African Americans, is now everywhere. The belief is expanding to include perceived marginalized people of all kinds despite the historic successes achieved for equality under the law not only for African Americans, but for women, gays, and trans people too.
We are not a perfect country, but this strife and conflict is an insidious distraction perpetrated by the internal and external enemies of American democracy. It’s making us weaker as a nation, less safe, and less smart. While our kids are Keeping up with the Kardashians and we bicker about race, gender identity, and critical race theory, a truly dangerous threat is growing all around us. Today, it’s more money at the gas pump or a few innocuous supply chain issues. A year from now, it’s food shortages and life-saving medications that are not available. If you think sketchy leaders and failed leadership policies don’t have the ability to cripple our economy or even annihilate life as we know it, think again. We are at a precipice. How we choose to govern ourselves and what we decide is truly importantnow may very well seal our fate as a nation. And if God forbid, we fail, what may eventually unite us is despondency—the despondency we feel when we realize we don’t recognize and may not be able to survive the system they put in play while we weren’t paying attention.
