Last week was another three ring circus in the Biden administration’s world. What a complete joke! Last Wednesday Hunter Biden showed up with at least two of his goons at the Oversight Congressional Committee hearing, but he couldn’t show up when he was subpoenaed. How does that happen? This display of contempt was nothing less than a slap in the face to the committee and a show of disrespect to our rule of law in America. It really didn’t come as a surprise since the Biden crime family never has followed the law other than their own and has always used this country as a self-serving vehicle.

What I found to be nothing less than just another cowardly act was as soon as Hunter realized Marjorie Taylor Greene was going to ask the questions, he and his wannabes ran out. Looks like the first son failed at crashing his own contempt hearing. The only thing this poor soul is good for is weighing crack.

My question is why wasn’t he arrested on the spot, or better yet immediately, for not showing up for a subpoena? Let me assure you, if this had been you or me, we would still be sitting in jail.

Next up, bye-bye Chris Christie. Needless to say, in my opinion, it’s not a loss. Last week Christie dropped out of the 2024 presidential race. So who, if anyone, will his departure help? Will it help Nikki Haley to grow support in New Hampshire where Christie grabbed a slice of anti-Trump Republicans? He said during his announcement, “It’s clear to me tonight that there isn’t a path for me to win the nomination, which is why I’m suspending my campaign for President of the United States.” He continued, “I want to promise you this: I am going to make sure that in no way do I enable Donald Trump to ever be President of the United States again, and that’s more important than my own personal ambitions.”

Christie was heard on a hot mic apparently talking about Haley before his town hall event last Wednesday, saying, “She’s gonna get smoked. You and I both know it. She’s not up to this.”

So who, if anyone, will Chris Christie endorse? Time will tell.

This week on Tuesday, January 15, the road to the White House in the process of firing Biden started in one of my favorite states, Iowa.

So why now does Iowa matter so much in the presidential election? Because whoever has won Iowa since 2000 has gone on to become the party’s nominee for President. Trump’s plan is to take Iowa by double digits.

In a final note from me this week, my prediction on Biden is he’ll drop out between the Iowa caucus and Super Tuesday.

On to Ludwig’s thoughts.


On Monday, January 1, Lloyd Austin was admitted to Walter Reed hospital. It was such a secret that no one was informed. Later in the week, on Thursday, the White House became aware of this situation. For three days, there was a breakdown in Cabinet protocols and military readiness, that appears to be gross incompetence. Someone was on vacation. Someone had called in sick. One communication failure after another. The incompetence should cause us to consider more impeachments or calls for resignations.

There is active war in Europe and the Middle East. The US Navy is coordinating with other nations to keep the shipping lanes open in the Red Sea, and the leadership in Washington DC is AWOL. The FAA has another failure in airline safety in Alaska. Our stockpile of munitions is dangerously low, should we be in a situation where we have to muster military power. Biden wants the military to fund abortions. The military recruiting goals are not being met. Meanwhile, the Pentagon is occupied with matters of diversity, equity, and inclusion training and searching for right-wing extremism.

Did anyone really support the Green New Deal? They seem to keep sneaking this ideology into everything. The progressive ideology of the Biden Administration is checking the environmental priorities and pursuing idiotic dreams of electric vehicles for the battlefield. Meanwhile, Hertz is getting rid of 20,000 Teslas, because no one wants to rent them, and Ford is reducing its goals for EV trucks.

One of the primary functions of the federal government is to protect our borders, but that does not seem to be the philosophy of Alejandro Mayorkas. He was a political refugee himself, born in Havana, Cuba, and served in the Obama administration. Why does the Biden Administration allow the continued flow of migrants into the country without serious scrutiny? Look at the enormous burdens in the border states and the cities where migrants are swallowing our resources. When do we reach the tipping point? I hope the country is able to last another year and we have a chance for a different approach, and a new government that will function in the interest of the working taxpayers of this nation.

These are truly scary days in our country.
