Just Your Standard Bull...

Let me set the scene for you. The name of the show is Queen of the South. Teresa Mendoza is the notorious drug lord. In season 4, Mendoza moves her operation to the city of New Orleans, where she comes to meet a corrupt New Orleans politician who has his hands into every pot. She quickly learns that you don’t make a move, do business or even sneeze without him saying its ok. He owns the cops, the system. If he doesn’t like you, you disappear. Included in his clan is the arrogant, self-important nephew with no qualifications, and a troubled son who suffers from drug addiction.
    Cut now to modern day politics and Presidential candidate Joe Biden. In this story, China is the drug dealer and are dealing with the influence peddling Biden family. Insert brother Jim for the self-important nephew, and Hunter plays the role of—well, Hunter. So, you want to do business here in the United States? They can put you together with the right folks to get the deal done. Not only here, but all over the world!
    After the recent revealing interview on Fox News on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” with Tony Bobulinski, a former business associate of Hunter Biden, evidence of public corruption mounts. Congressional democrats claim it is more Russian disinformation. And the main-stream media simply does not report this at all. ABC, NBC, CBS—nothing. Which begs the question. If a large tree deep in the woods falls to the ground, and there is no one there to hear it fall—does it actually make a sound when it falls?
    Seriously, we have never seen anything like what we are witnessing today. There is no such thing as non-partisan reporting any longer. Think about where that leaves us as a country. History has shown us that we will and have had corrupt officials in both parties. Who will give us an honest evaluation, free of any political influence?
    And it’s not just the mainstream media—everyone is taking sides these days. Look at social media. Facebook and Twitter are in the news these days for their censorship. When they don’t like what you have to say, they simply pull it.
    It is hard to see a way ahead on all of this. Corruption is corruption, no matter what party they make claim to. It would be nice to see people held accountable for their actions. Instead, we have political impeachment proceedings that cost the American taxpayer millions of dollars. We can spend millions on this and then turn our backs on corruption with actual proof that includes personal testimony, documents, emails and texts.
    It’s a crazy world we live in these days!
