What Game Is Hunter Biden Playing?

What shameless act or felonious activity was not evidenced on Hunter Biden’s laptop? Racist attitudes toward Asians? Soliciting prostitution? Felonious use of drugs? Photographed nudity and perverse sex? Admissions to illicit foreign shakedowns?

Hunter accused his father, President Joe Biden, of also being on the foreign take: “I hope you all can do what I did and pay for everything for this entire family… Unlike Pop, I won’t make you give me half your salary.”

Hunter’s alleged felonies range from bribery to tax evasion. That he has not yet been prosecuted for anything is scandalous. His exemption is attributable only to Attorney General Merrick Garland’s likely weaponized directives to federal prosecutors to downgrade or forget altogether felony charges against Hunter.

So, given such wild behavior, why would Hunter not tone it down, stop the global grifting, cease the reckless behavior — and quit redirecting attention to the likely illegal acts of his father, the president? FULL STORY HERE

Biden Admin to Give $520 Million to Ukraine to Make ‘Cleaner’ Energy.

When Secretary of State Antony Blinken made a surprise visit to Kyiv this week, he not only promised over $1 billion in new aid to Ukraine but signaled the Biden administration’s fixation on climate change by reiterating an earlier pledge to provide $520 million to help Ukraine make “cleaner” energy.

Every Democrat voted for this Bill… A parent can lose custody if they do not acknowledge their child is the opposite sex if the child believes they are.

As Amended August 17, 2023 Majority vote

According to the author, when two parents do not agree on affirming the gender identity of their TGI (transgender, gender diverse, or intersex) child, existing statutes do not provide guidance to

the court on how to determine the TGI child’s best interest. The author and many of the supporters point to studies showing that TGI youth are at much higher risk for depression, mental health crises, and suicidal thoughts than their cisgender peers. The author argues that having “at least one adult in a child’s life who affirms their gender identity decreases their chances of attempting suicide significantly.” Moreover, many TGI minors face health and safety risks in their homes if they have non-affirming caretakers. The author believes this bill will clarify that “affirming a child’s gender identity is in the best interest of the child for purposes of decisions on matters of child custody and gender-affirming petitions to change names and gender markers.” READ MORE HERE

Good article by Andrea widburg, Pay attention please……….

You probably know all these details, but a little reminder doesn’t hurt on 9-11

Energy prices in America are going to get much worse than we’ve ever imagined

By Andrea Widburg

Last week, Joe Biden canceled all drilling in Alaska on federal land. Separate from the fact that no president should have that kind of power over the American economy and lifestyle, he paired it with another executive order that will make fuel more expensive than Americans have ever imagined.

Joe Biden promised during his basement campaign for the presidency that he was going to “end fossil fuel”:

The former vice president and Democratic presidential candidate made the comment Friday after a New Hampshire environmental activist challenged him for accepting donations from the co-founder of liquified natural gas firm.

Biden denied the donor’s association to the fossil fuel industry before calling the young woman “kiddo” and taking her hand. He said, “I want you to look at my eyes. I guarantee you. I guarantee you. We’re going to end fossil fuel.”

Many assumed that Biden was just pandering to the base. He was not. His executive orders have aggressively attacked fossil fuel (although not in China). As part of these orders, Biden immediately placed a moratorium on new oil and gas leases on federal lands.

Again, the Founders never intended to give the executive this much power over every aspect of American life. After all, fossil fuel underlies modern America. It’s not just about cars.

Every single thing in your house, including your food and drugs, and in your office place is dependent on fossil fuel. It is an ingredient in the goods we use, as well as the energy that manufactures them and gets them to market. It also enables all modern food production, from planting, to fertilizer, to harvesting, to getting to the grocery store. Without it, we revert to the pre-modern instantly. Yet Biden is slashing away at this fundamental, existential resource like a tyrant.

Last week, Biden increased his attack on fossil fuel:

Keep in mind that Biden does not own federal land. We the people own federal land. He’s just the property manager. It’s almost a form of embezzlement for him to take the product and profits from the owners for his own ideological benefit.

It’s wrong in every way that one looks at it—and that’s not even considering that this policy increases our reliance on foreign nations for fuel. What makes this worse is that these foreign nations are less concerned than America about preventing pollution. Moreover, they’re often tyrannies, and, typically for tyrannies, they’re often anti-American. That’s where our money is going—and lots of it because the edict will drive up prices.

But it turns out that it’s even worse than that. Wendy Patterson published a tweet explaining that the anti-drilling order doesn’t exist in a vacuum. Instead, it’s paired with an executive order ending the transporting of liquid natural gas by train:

I want to make sure that you understand what is about to happen so you can prepare.

Biden canceled all of the Alaska drilling on Federal land. At the same time he stopped allowing liquid natural gas from being transported by train.
That leaves the only mode of transportation by trucking. About 2 months ago the largest trucking company went out of business: Yellow, one of the nation’s largest freight and trucking companies, announced it is shutting down, leading to one of the largest mass layoffs in recent history and potential shipping cost increases. The company is in bankruptcy just three years after getting a $700 million loan from taxpayers.

So that is going to create a massive supply chain issue of liquid natural gas which means your utility bills as well as the price of gas is going to skyrocket.

Biden used 300 million gallons of gas from our reserves to keep the gas prices artificially low. They can’t do that anymore. They have set us up in every way to purposely make gas prices and utility prices skyrocket so fill all of your gas cans, buy propane ect NOW while you can still afford it.

Joe Biden has seized control of an American asset and is withholding it from the American people to their detriment. He is doing so in service to an ideology that is belied by actual science, and that is fundamentally anti-humanist.

But of course, this isn’t Biden, who is a puppet. This is the Democrat party. If Biden or another Democrat gains the White House in 2024, expect more of the same until we have reverted to a medieval lifestyle that is, in Hobbes’s immortal words, “solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short.” The dividing line between then and now is fossil fuel. Yank it out from under us, and it’s all over.

Six Boys and 13 Hands ( Iwo jima) You may need a kleenx

Each year I am hired to go to Washington, DC, with the eighth-grade class from Clinton, WI where I grew up, to videotape their trip. I greatly enjoy visiting our nation’s capital, and each year I take some special memories back with me. This fall’s trip was especially memorable.

On the last night of our trip, we stopped at the Iwo Jima memorial. This memorial is the largest bronze statue in the world and depicts one of the most famous photographs in history — that of the six brave soldiers raising the American Flag at the top of a rocky hill on the island of Iwo Jima, Japan, during WW II.

Over one hundred students and chaperones piled off the buses and headed towards the memorial. I noticed a solitary figure at the base of the statue, and as I got closer, he asked, ‘Where are you guys from?’

I told him that we were from Wisconsin. ‘Hey, I’m a cheese head, too! Come gather around, Cheese heads, and I will tell you a story.’

(It was James Bradley who just happened to be in Washington, DC, to speak at the memorial the following day. He was there that night to say good night to his dad, who had passed away. He was just about to \leave when he saw the buses pull up. I videotaped him as he spoke to us and received his permission to share what he said from my videotape. It is one thing to tour the incredible monuments filled with history in Washington, DC, but it is quite another to get the kind of insight we received that night.)

When all had gathered around, he reverently began to speak. (Here are his words that night.)

‘My name is James Bradley and I’m from Antigo, Wisconsin. My dad is on that statue, and I wrote a book called ‘Flags of Our Fathers’. It is the story of the six boys you see behind me. Six boys raised the flag. The first guy putting the pole in the ground is Harlon Block. Harlon was an all-state football player. He enlisted in the Marine Corps with all the senior members of his football team. They were off to play another type of game. A game called ‘War.’ But it didn’t turn out to be a game. Harlon, at the age of 21, died with his intestines in his hands. I don’t say that to gross you out, I say that because there are people who stand in front of this statue and talk about the glory of war. You guys need to know that most of the boys in Iwo Jima were 17, 18, and 19 years old – and it was so hard that the ones who did make it home never even would talk to their
families about it.

(He pointed to the statue) You see this next guy? That’s Rene Gagnon from New Hampshire. If you took Rene’s helmet off at the moment this photo was taken and
looked in the webbing of that helmet, you would find a photograph…a photograph of his girlfriend. Rene put that in there for protection because he was scared. He was 18 years old. It was just boys who won the battle of Iwo Jima. Boys. Not old men. The next guy here, the third guy in this tableau, was Sergeant Mike Strank. Mike is my hero. He was the hero of all these guys. They called him the ‘old man’ because he was so old. He was already 24. When Mike would motivate his boys in training camp, he didn’t say, ‘Let’s go kill some Japanese’ or ‘Let’s die for our country’. He knew he was talking to little boys. Instead, he would say, ‘You do what I say, and I’ll get you home to your mothers.’

The last guy on this side of the statue is Ira Hayes, a Pima Indian from Arizona. Ira Hayes was one of them who lived to walk off Iwo Jima. He went into the White House with my dad. President Truman told him, ‘You’re a hero’ He told reporters, ‘How can I feel like a hero when 250 of my buddies hit the island with me and only 27 of us walked
off alive?’

So, you take your class at school, 250 of you spending a year together having fun, doing everything together. Then all 250 of you hit the beach, but only 27 of your classmates walk off alive. That was Ira Hayes. He had images of horror in his mind. Ira Hayes carried the pain home with him and eventually died dead drunk, face down, drowned in a very shallow puddle, at the age of 32 (ten years after this picture was taken).

The next guy, going around the statue, is Franklin Sousley from Hilltop, Kentucky. A fun-lovin’ hillbilly boy. His best friend, who is now 70, told me, ‘Yeah, you know, we took two cows up on the porch of the Hilltop General Store. Then we strung wire across the stairs so the cows couldn’t get down. Then we fed them Epsom salts. Those cows
crapped all night.’ Yes, he was a fun-lovin’ hillbilly boy. Franklin died on Iwo Jima at the age of 19. When the telegram came to tell his mother that he was dead, it went to the Hilltop General Store. A barefoot boy ran that telegram up to his mother’s farm. The neighbors could hear her scream all night and into the morning. Those neighbors lived a quarter of a mile away.

‘The next guy, as we continue to go around the statue, is my dad, John Bradley, from Antigo, Wisconsin, where I was raised. My dad lived until 1994, but he would never give interviews. When Walter Cronkite’s producers or the New York Times would call, we were trained as little kids to say ‘No, I’m sorry, sir, my dad’s not here. He is in Canada fishing. No, there is no phone there, sir. No, we don’t know when he is coming back.’ My dad never fished or even went to Canada. Usually, he was sitting there right at the table eating his Campbell’s soup. But we had to tell the press that he was out fishing. He didn’t want to talk to the press.

‘You see, like Ira Hayes, my dad didn’t see himself as a hero. Everyone thinks these guys are heroes, ’cause they are in a photo and on a monument. My dad knew better. He was a medic. John Bradley from Wisconsin was a combat caregiver. On Iwo Jima he probably held over 200 boys as they died. And boys died on Iwo Jima, they writhed and screamed, without any medication or help with the pain.

‘When I was a little boy, my third-grade teacher told me that my dad was a hero. When I went home and told my dad that, he looked at me and said, ‘I want you always to remember that the heroes of Iwo Jima are the guys who did not come back. Did NOT come back.’

‘So that’s the story about six nice young boys. Three died on Iwo Jima, and three came back as national heroes. Overall, 7,000 boys died on Iwo Jima in the worst battle in the history of the Marine Corps. My voice is giving out, so I will end here. Thank you for your time.’ Suddenly, the monument wasn’t just a big old piece of metal with a
flag sticking out of the top. It came to life before our eyes with the heartfelt words of a son who did indeed have a father who was a hero. Maybe not a hero for the reasons most people would believe, but a hero nonetheless.

One thing I learned while on tour with my 8th grade students in DC that is not mentioned here is, that if you look at the statue very closely and count the number of ‘hands’ raising the flag, there are 13. When the man who made the statue was asked why there were 13, he simply said the13th hand was the hand of God.

Great story – worth your time – worth every American’s time. Please pass it on.

Big Kudos to Dennis & Patty McKenzie who have been the driving force behind having the DaFrenzy each year!
Editor’s Note: Jim mentioned “Da Frenzy” on FB so asked him about it.

History of Da Frenzy

This all started as just a “guys” white water river rafting. Dave Brickell got us started by going on the un-dammed Stanislaus River when it was a wild and heart throbbing thrill maker! This was in 1977 and on that raft trip was David, Ken Kocina, Jim Silvers, Dave Harrison, Dennis and two neighbor friends. The die was cast for fun and adventure. After all these years we can still hear those giant rapids cascading and making our hearts beat through our chests: Clavey Falls;
Meatgrinder; Satan’s Cesspool; Caldera, Chamberland Falls; Tunnel Chute; Freight Train and so many more! Below are the years and places of Da Frenzy along with any notable events. 1977. Stanislaus, stayed at Dave and Mary Ann’s cabin in Dorington. Silvers, Harrison and Kocina loved it so much they rented a raft just for themselves the next day and tried it again. The raft came back battered and almost completely devoid of air leaving the ninny rafters much subdued having barely escaped with their lives!
1981/1982. So. Fork American River. Camped in campgrounds right by the river in Coloma. 1983. Merced River. Camped along the banks. Jo Pat Names and her daughter Melissa were the first ladies to join our rafting group 1984/1985.Cal Salmon River, Somes Bar. This Class V River was downright frightening. We fished
Dave Thawley out of the river just before the raft crashed into a rock wall at a rapid called, “Freight Train” while Pres Winters helped power us through this monster! After this rapid we merged with the Klamath and a bunch of us jumped out to float down this section of river. Sharon Young was gently floating down the river as we were told all the major rapids were done when “Surprise,” she was sucked down into a whirlpool and we all thought she had drowned as she was down so long.
Sharon never rafted again!
1993. So Fork American
1994. Middle Fork American, stayed in Auburn.
1995. Tuolumne River, Groveland. This was when Patti started having more ladies joining us and always made sure they had lots to do when others were on the river. This river had something like 19 miles of continuous rapids. Many were tossed or capsized at “Clavey Falls.” Jim Silvers was credited by “Debbie” as saving her life when she was tossed at this major rapid! Debbie is a friend of Wanda Kocina’s.
1996/97. Klamath River, stayed at The Treehouse resort in Mt.Shasta. Notable for a huge rapid called “Caldera!” That was a real heart-stopper. Many of us were tossed on this river. We put Dean Wedlow up front to catch all the giant waves! Patti was joined by Maryann Brickell and Joyce Suske as the ladies were becoming more a part of these trips.
1998. No. Fork American, stayed in Nevada City. The Christiansen’s boat capsized at “Chamberland Falls” and they all got separated and thought family members had drowned. Finally they were all accounted for and pulled aboard other rafts. The family took the next year off from rafting and were so traumatized they wouldn’t even take their rubber ducky to the bath for fear it would drown!

History of Da Frenzy

1999/2000.Middle Fork American, stayed in Georgetown. A friend of Ken Kocina’s, Jim Johnson set a record for being tossed out of his raft at (3) separate rapids. Lee Wilson was tossed and made it to a rock in the middle of the river still clinging to his pack of cigarettes: Dick Tietgens hurt his shoulder by jumping over a chain length fence in back of a Mexican restaurant and catching his foot in the top chain lengths and banging his shoulder on the ground. He thought he had broken it and
needed pain meds! He developed a deep whine in his voice that you can still hear today when he talks, which is well…constantly!
2001. Klamath River, stayed at the Mt.Shasta Resort. This was Bill Phelan’s one and only time he joined us. He said river rafting was just too cold as he shivered like a puppy dog in and out of the water!
2002. Salmon River stayed in Marble Mountain Ranch with Doug and Heidi. Heidi talked Patti and Wanda Kocina into going on a scenic float down the Klamath while the rest of us were rafting the Salmon. It turns out she took them through major rapids absolutely soaking the girls. Wanda complained about the drenching so Heidi made sure she punished Wanda some more for her complaints by slamming into even more rapids to keep her soaked! Afterwards Wanda told Patti. “Heidi didn’t like me, I don’t understand it, EVERYONE likes me!” (Shades of Sally Fields.)
2003. Rogue River stayed at Lithia Springs Resort in Ashland. It was about this time our group became known as “Da Frenzy.” Some kayaked, most rafted
2004/2005. Rogue River Grants Pass stayed at the Weasku Inn. The first time there was just great, the second time new mgmt took over and this one female mgr tried to tell Jack Morris and Lee Wilson how to correctly do food prep as they were working in the kitchen on the BBQ. Jack chased her out by telling her, “ Listen ‘Little Missy” if we need any help from you we’ll ask for it! “This thoroughly ticked her off so our DA’s Rich Beard and Geof Beaty met with mgmt afterwards and
told them what idiots they were. “Little Missy told Patti and me, “Maybe our resort is just not for you!” Nope, it wasn’t we never returned.
2006/2007 McKenzie River at Belnap Hot Springs. The first time was just too great for words. The second time it was something like 106 degrees, smoke from fires all around and the A/C in the resort conked out. Still that river and the setting were really special. We started our talent and karaoke contests here and drinking wine and having dinner on a huge patio right along the river. Spec-Tac-U-Lar!
2008/2009. Blue Lakes, stayed at the Lodge at Blue Lakes. Great setting with huge event center.
Our talent contest was just too special. The karaoke guy from McKenzie River came all the way down from Oregon to do it all again, he had never had so much fun in his life! Dick Tietgens was a judge and dressed and talked like Adolf Hitler, joined by Charmain Gardner who did the perfect Paula Abdul imitation and Paul Gardner as Simon. Then in walked the”Grass Valley Boys” David White, Joseph Lima and Sohrab Molana with their full size, anatomically correct blow up dolls that
they danced with all over the floor while trying but failing to keep duct tape patches on their private areas from falling off. 2009 was also our trip to the Buffalo Ranch atop a mountain peak where we dined on BBQ buffalo steak under the redwoods. Wow, that was great. It was also the worst kayak trip ever as we paddled in excess heat and smoke expecting to see wildlife at Somes Bar and only saw floating dead fish. Lunch in the marsh involved swatting mosquitoes which was really difficult
for the girls while trying to relive themselves while being “bug bombed!” It was just a memorable, miserable outing. In spite of all of this, Jim Aligo just back from bladder surgery smiled all the way through and enjoyed himself immensely. He thought he had beaten the cancer and this adventure was a challenge to him but this turned out to be his last outing!
2010. So. Lake Tahoe, Sharon and Dick Tietgens,and Wanda and Ken Kocina got us excellent lodging and reserved us spots on the “Dixie Belle” for a dinner cruise with a band. GREAT!
2011. We took the year off
2012. Rogue River Gold Beach, Ore. Everyone’s favorite. A resort right on the ocean, jet boating the Rogue then dinner and dancing and wearing retro clothes from our high school days. We enjoyed the evening at Sheriff Johns Class Cars and Malt Shop.” This huge building was filled with classic cars from the 50’s and had a real malt shot recreated from the era. Tom Zenahlik and Dennis McKenzie got to be D.J.s and we had a contest for best 50’s outfits. This was just too special for words. Life sized stand up cardboard images of James Dean and Marilyn Monroe watched us while we danced and frolicked around!
2013. Mendocino, stayed at the Mendocino Hotel Went up the Little River on electric sailboats, some of us kayaked into the ocean caves and all was great. Did a chartered wine bus tour of the wineries of Anderson Valley. Oh my it was fun!
2014 Sonoma, stayed at the Best Western and walked all around the town square, took the Napa Fun Train and had dinner, now how much fun was that! It was our last time with Rev. Dave Bridgen!
2015. Cambria at the Cambria Pines Resort. Great location, tours of Hearst Castle, antique shopping and dinner on the “Chablis” flat bottom boat at Morro Bay. Breakfast every morning and a live band every evening. What was not to like?
2016. Monterey. Stayed in the brand new edition of the Monterey Hotel. A tour in the movie bus to see all the locations where great movies were filmed and then watched the movie scenes on the overhead TV including one with Troy Donahue and Sandra Dee!’ Lunch at the fantastic “Tap Room” a place for the rich and famous…and us. Then dinner at El Tapatio’s right on the waters edge. Oh gosh this was great 2017. Cambria. A repeat of a winner.
2018. Squaw Valley, Mike & Karen Thompson set this up. Great rooms at the Olympic Village and a fantastic evening cruise on a paddle wheel boat on Lake Tahoe. A trip up the ski lift to the top of the mountain and drinks next to the pool in an Alpine location. Just another great outing.
2019 Cambria at the Cambria Pines Resort. We were trailered in on open beds via tractor for a tour,of Clovell’s Clydesdale Ranch where Tara our owner/ guide turned 21 that day she then helped us,celebrate with a huge BBQ steak dinner in the horse barn along with music and dancing. We, watched as Dave and Lois Harrison danced like newly-weds and David White got a dance with his 21 year old new girl friend…for the moment…Tara!” All was 1-DER-FUL!
2020. Covid cancelled after all the hard work Dan&April Bullock put into organizing this outing.

2021. Rogue River at the Riverside Resort in Grants Pass. Once again, Dan & April Bullock put this together. Great resort right on the river, breakfast every morning great restaurants on the river and of course the terrific jet boat trip up the river and a brunch at the jet boat resort overlooking the Rogue River. Does it get any better than that?
2022. Pismo Beach. Just one of the best ocean locations EVER. Wonderful setting picked out by Tom & Mary Mazzone who labored hard to make everything great. Breakfast every morning, a bus trip to Solvang for some to do wine tasting and shopping zip lines and Humvees for others then the grand finale dinner at the Ventana Grill! It was just an amazing time! What a location!
Putting it all together:
We have done what few have ever done: we have rafted and survived just about all the major rivers in Ca, Southern and Central Oregon and most of us are still around to tell the tales! The ladies joining in with us added class and made every outing even better. We may have mellowed out and are no longer white water rafting but we are still doing jet-boats and water dinner cruises.
Many of you have helped organize these Frenzies and none of it happened by accident. Our thanks to the Pascoe’s, the Christiansen’s, Zenalhiks, Mazzone’s, Bullocks, and so many more who helped make Da Frenzy the success that it is. It was hard work but always led to so many great adventures with our BFF’s. None of this could have happened without my wife Patti who is also my best friend and sweetheart who was always there to help put these together for over 30 years and always looked out for the best interest of the ladies.
2023? Hopefully, to be continued!
Dennis & Patti
