Political Quote of the Week – 2021
We close the year with Abraham Lincoln. He could be speaking about the 2 million illegal aliens permitted - nae encouraged - to cross our southern border in 2021, about the 680,000 illegal criminals who "got away," about the 100k fentanyl (poisoned pill) drug deaths directly resulting from Biden's open border policies.

Obama’s Stock Market Miracle for Wealthy Donors: Bubble for the Rest?
