Biden voters, enjoy your lower wages when all of the illegal labor is allowed in the United States.

Don't bitch when you don't get a raise and your benefits taken away by your employer because Juan and Carlos will work for $5 an hour.

Biden issued an Executive Order his first day in office allowing illegal immigration.

I bet the Biden Family received a very nice wire transfer to their Cayman Island bank account from the Global Elites for that Executive Order.

Get ready for gasoline over $4 a gallon soon because of Biden's policies. Then, after he raises corporate taxes, watch companies move operations offshore again to avoid them.

People have said repeatedly here the president doesn't have any control over gasoline prices.

More than half of the retail cost of gasoline is determined by the price of crude oil, and that price is driven, largely, by supply and demand.

Here's a link (if you can comprehend it).


But by all means, you chucklowes just go ahead and stay inside your echo chamber and repeat the same falsehoods forever.

Well of course these idiots honor Biden they are just as bad as he is and they are globalists who want you in a totalitarian world. The old man Bush even said so many times but people are so stupid they didn't even know what he was talking about. Thank God he's dead now. Obama was the straw that broke our back with his racist hate he is the one who damaged our country beyond repair. Instead of sticking his big nose in other president's business he needs to focus on his oldest daughter and her mental problem. She is an exhibitionist and a sick person.

7:58 You fuckin moron-

"These United States of America are now net a net exporter of energy. We have broken the OPEC stranglehold that once led to gas lines for Americans. As you can see from the featured photo I took at 1537 Eastern time yesterday, the price of a gallon of diet gas was $2.19/gallon in Talladega (Ricky Bobby!!) Alabama. The price of gas spent a lot of time under $2.00/gallon, even prior to the arrival of the Wuhan China Virus on our shores.

How did that happen? Simple. President Trump removed unnecessary and burdensome and not based on science, regulations. He got the Federal Government out of the way so American ingenuity could take us from being a net energy importer, to a net exporter. Incidentally, the people who the leftists constantly mewl about caring so much about, are the ones who benefit the most from these low gas prices. Face it, $7.00 gas doesn’t affect leftist millionaires. It affects mostly low income folks. The killing off of the Keystone Pipeline will raise gas prices immediately - Thanks JOE!"

This from the scumbag fucks at the Chamber Of Commerce -

"The U.S. Chamber of Commerce says its corporate members can create jobs for Americans if President Joe Biden’s amnesty and migration bill provides them with “the world’s most talented and industrious people.”

That is NOT you white boys and black boys and your wages are going back down. For the first time in literally 25 years wages went up under Trump, now, Joe's Wall Street buddies and Globalists are going to PUT AMERICA LAST.

And, it's just day one!!

Very wise of Biden to jettison the "remain in Mexico" policy, and encourage the caravans, while we're in the midst of a pandemic.

Will the caravan folk all be masked, and observing social distancing?

Look for another huge surge of virus on the southern border once the diaspora hits full swing (probably within two or three weeks). Will the media lay the nearly inevitable deaths on Biden, or will they just fail to report it?

We know the answer to that.

I see that all of the life long politicians were at the show yesterday to pay homage to their 47 year partner. None of them have done anything to better America, everything they do is to place limits on "the little people" (you and I). They have all become millionaires while holding public service jobs. And the crowds (?) of supporters that vote for them don't see the problem right in front of their noses. People congress limited the president to two terms not even 100 years ago to keep him from gaining too much power, but, congress has always stopped short of limiting their own power (and money) grab with no term limits. Don't be a sheep. Wake up and demand term limits on the House and Senate.

"Yeah let's go back to separating families and keeping them in cages." Those cages were a product of the Obama administration. Since Biden is Obama II, expect more and bigger cages.

8:18, Chimpy doesn't care whether a gallon of gas costs $2, $4 or $400. Nobody at the Institute will let him drive.

Well, $4 gasoline wouldn't make me happy, but when it happened before it wasn't devastating either.

Unlike Trump and his supporters, I've never been handicapped by doubts of my own masculinity or the size of certain portions of my anatomy, so I've always been able to enjoy the benefits of driving small, economical cars.

If Fuel prices rise enough, I may well buy a F-150 pickup at Fire Sale prices, I certainly can afford one even at present prices now, any $5/gallon fuel could easily be budgeted for. It might be fun to drive one of them through a Trailer park from time to time, with Biden/Harris flags flyinf from poles mounted in the bed.

Let's not forget after this colossal fraud of the progressives seizing control, that the Republican's had that opportunity for the first two years. THEY could have implemented the MAGA agenda, they could have followed through on their fake-ass promises, they stymied President Trump at every turn. Now they reap the benefits; a progressive-communist takeover of the Executive and Legislative branches. Judicial soon to follow. The progressive hive-mind certainly has its advantages: the hive says "think this" and demoncrats hop in line at a 99.99% rate. The Republican party is split. There are still a bunch of big government money grubbers around who absolutely hate the populist side fighting for "the little guy". Trump was definitely the populist side regardless of his foibles, his appearance on the scene fully exposed the McConnell's of the world for what they are: big staters. It will suck having Biden as Pres, and the progressives will get their wish of a significantly diminished middle-class and economic destruction, but we're still probably two generations from a truly totalitarian state.

See chucklowes, I realize what you were told would happen - and then not have happen at all - must come as a major disappointment to you all.

- Expect the emergency broadcast system to be activated. The FCC just recently released a memorandum speaking to the requirements under Federal law to send messages from the president to the public.

- Expect confusion. We are in a battle for our republic against elites that are attempting the very coup that they are accusing Trump of doing. In battle, there will be disinformation but know that plans are being fulfilled.

- Expect high profile arrests to take place over the next 12 days and at any time. You may wake one morning to find someone in high office is no longer there.

- Expect this to be a bumpy ride to the very end. This is not a television show where things are resolved in 45 minutes.

- Expect more bombshell evidence to be released between now and Jan. 20th.

- Expect some sort of internet blackout or outage: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Gmail are likely going to be affected. If you don’t have alternate forms of communication established now, it would be a good idea to start forming them even if it’s just checking on your nextdoor neighbors.

- Expect Trump to be inaugurated on Jan 20th!

- Expect the executive order from 2018 and/or the Insurrection Act to be enacted. This DOES NOT mean martial law. Remember that we have been under a state of emergency since 2018 which gives the president many powers to act.


I mean, if somebody promised me that and I were a chucklowe, I'd get a fucking boner!
