  1. Our Democracyᵀᴹ is more of a sham than a democratic republic – or else the uniparty is stronger than the light side? – elections are merely the window dressing for the administrative state to maintain public legitimacy. What was this Trump Schedule F e.o. attempt? Something like 3 million federal employees who cannot be fired? And the number of those who go along for the pension and shrug at the banality of the evil in their agency? No matter who is in power, the national debt rises, deficit spending and omnibus negotiations are the norm, and immigration continues at warp speed: both legal and illegal.

    As far as never having seen anything like it in 30 years: These may be the end times . . . 3rd secret of Fatima was hoarded and the Consecration of Russia has never been performed correctly according to Our Lady’s explicit instruction. God has promised never to destroy the world by Flood again – with the rainbow – but our pride will invite the anger of the Just Judge to destroy us by fire of nuclear war, solar flare, or coronal mass ejection, or combination of all three: oceans would boil and earth’s magnetic field would fail to shield us.

  2. Sami still giggles whenever Hunter comes up. Just sayin…

    Btw. I imagine Sami as an unholy cross between Jenna Fischer and Joy Beher with red rimmed librarian glasses who wears a paper bag over her head while recording to keep her identity secret. Anyone else find themselves having to supply a visual stand in while they listen to these podcasts?

  3. Why is the clergy silent on the violent behavior of these young black looting mobs? Where are the black elders and black pastors? I expected them to decry this endless crime spree by their black youth. Why are they silent?

  4. Our government changed when FDR served 16 years as president. That was the end of TERM LIMITS. Our Democracy is gone. Presently the oldest 10 members of all of Congress are 83 to 89. They serve for decades one for 50 years many for 30 in 40 and more years. We have an oligarch. They don’t change our vote is worthless.

    1. A strong argument Mr. Argen. There are far too many completely useless lifers in Congress and the Senate. Exhibit A: Joe Biden. Also Nancy Pelosi, Dianne Feinstein, Patrick Leahy, Bernie Sanders, Dick Durbin, Anna Eshoo, Zoe Lofrgren, Maizie Hirono, Jerry Nadler, Steny Hoyer, Patty Murray, Ron Wyden, Adam Schiff, Eric Swallwell, Chuck Schumer, Jackie Speier, Debbie Stabenow, Mark Warner, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Sheldon Whitehouse, Ted Lieu, Amy Klobuchar, Dick Blumenthal. Almost every Rep. and Sen. from the one party state of MA. Sadly, almost the entire black caucus of Congress: Maxine Waters, Al Green, Hank Johnson, Sheila Jackson Lee., Frederica Wilson, Alcee Hastings, Kwesi Mfume, Bennie Thompson, James Clyburn. Lisa Murkowski, Susan Collins, Mitt Romney and Joe Manchin are mostly useless when not directly harmful. Barbara Jordan, Sam Ervin and Daniel Patrick Moynihan left us too soon. The state of South Carolina has wonderful people. Could they please someday primary Lindsey Graham? Things can always get worse. Newcomers, Cori Bush, Ayanna Pressley, Sandy Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, Pramila Jayapal. Each of the lifers is connected to a lifer network of Federal employees and lobbyists. A force multiplier for corruption. The Deep State is mostly right out in the open. The majority of the tired, old names and tiresome new names above will still hold office after November and beyond.
