Trump Was Right, of Course

In the fall of 2020, President Trump announced that all Americans would be able to get a COVID vaccine by April of 2021. The media promptly trounced his assertion as being unsupported by evidence and reported that nobody knew when sufficient data would be available from clinical trials to make such a prediction. Well, Trump was right. The Biden administration inherited Trump’s Operation Warp Speed and, thankfully, hasn’t botched it up. And now all Americans are able to get vaccinated just like Trump said. We can’t take all the credit for this observation. We saw this in Steve Krakauer’s Fourth Watch Newsletter of April 25, 2021. Krakauer also suggested that a good way to reduce vaccine hesitancy on the right would be to hire Trump – bring him to the White House and put him to work. Frankly, we would support such a move. Does anyone besides Bandolero note the irony in all this? COVID-19 cost Trump the re-election he so richly deserved and now Biden owes his high marks to the success of Trump’s efforts to beat the virus. Biden could also use help from Trump in dealing with the immigration crisis at our southern border. Frankly, if Biden really wants to have a successful administration, he should adopt quite a few more of Trump’s policies. We don’t hold much hope for this, sound as it would be. The Biden administration has found a better way of garnering public approval than actually addressing our problems with real solutions. The Biden way? Give away free money, of course! We just got a letter from Biden. It came in an envelope from the IRS, for some reason, telling us we’ll soon see another $2400 magically appear in our checking account! Oh boy!

Kansas Oil

Bandolero has learned of distressing news about the oil industry in Kansas. Not only is the industry in dire straits due to depressed oil prices, depressed availability of services and supplies, and depressed oil patch workers, but it is being vilified, stalked, persecuted, and suppressed by the government regulators charged with the responsibility to ensure its robust health. And they are not the usual government persecutors, the EPA. To read about what’s happening, visit the industry experts at GasKan, and read about the KCC Killer Kops.

Buckle Up

Bandolero is aghast and distraught over recent events. People who engaged in rioting and vandalism in the Capitol are called criminals who engaged in an insurrection. People who engaged in rioting and vandalism in Seattle and New York are called protesters who engaged in free speech. Videos of the activities of both are virtually indistinguishable other than for their location. Incredibly, the actions at the Capitol are blamed on President Trump and senators who voted against the certification of the Electoral College votes that made the election of Joe Biden finally official. Painting the senators as seditionists exposes the height of arrogance, imperiousness, pretentiousness, and superciliousness the left has achieved. Video of what President Trump said does not reveal the incitement that’s alleged. We’re witnessing the unmasking of the leftist juggernaut. Having taken the presidency and emasculated the Senate, the left has pulled out all the stops in furtherance of their goal of eradicating conservatism by equating it with sedition, insurrection, and treason. If you disagree with them, then you are a terrorist. If you disagree with them, then you are not exercising your right to free speech, you are inciting insurrection, sedition, and terrorism. If you disagree with them you should be prosecuted as a criminal and imprisoned; or, perhaps, sent to a camp in Alaska for “re-training”.

We listened to President-elect Biden claim that his “over-arching goal” is to unify the country. But, when we listened to the rest of his remarks, it was obvious that he considers “unification” to be the silencing of conservatism. What he meant was, “The country will be unified when the conservatives surrender.” If you oppose the Green New Deal, you’ll be labeled a Nazi, a fascist, an insurrectionist, a terrorist. In fact, go ahead and try to oppose the Green New Deal! You won’t find an effective platform from which to do so, because your words will be deemed to violate “civil norms”, and you will be barred from the platform.

We just heard that the Democrats are referring to what’s coming as “transformative change”. Indeed. They have their sights set on transforming the United States from capitalism to socialism, or perhaps communism. Things are certainly going to get interesting. The initiation of a new war on terror is under way, but the “terror” is the voice of opposition which is the voice of the Constitution. Buckle up and prepare to say “good-bye” to it.
