Heartlanders and flyover folks find it increasingly difficult to listen to the nonsensical radical left. Even the classic “bless your heart” doesn’t seem to cover it anymore. But where does that leave the rural folk desperate to keep from uttering the oh-so-many unflattering ways to describe the musings of Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, and the hot mess America finds herself embroiled in today?
A Chronic Case of Clinton
It is unknown what Mrs. William Jefferson Clinton does in all her spare time – but some surmise she noodles on all sorts of wild ideas to remove Donald Trump from living rent-free in her brain. Her latest Trump-obsessed scheme was unveiled by CNN to a handful of viewers. Clinton offered: “At some point, there needs to be a formal deprogramming of cult members.”
“A safe and effective cult,” was the snark from Colston Thompson in Huntsville, Alabama, prompting a dare from Jimmy Scott in Benton, LA: “Come get me!”
Most Heartlanders do not appreciate the likes of Hillary and her ridiculous remarks, and most commented such things as Roland Moeller from New Bremen, OH: “Hillary …fly over America … we will give you two middle fingers.” The “bless your heart” was implied.
Trump’s ‘Biden’ His Time
Mayor Eric Adams in NYC, fed up with the feds, flew south to ask people to stay home because his Big Apple was done feeding the fleeing immigrants. Funny, in 2021, hizzoner was tweeting: “We should protect our immigrants. Period. Yes, New York City will remain a sanctuary city under an Adams administration.” He doubled down in 2022, still shilling the Biden message of no crisis in sight: “This is the place where we ensure we live up to the expectations of what it is to be an American, an American citizen, or a country that welcomes those fleeing prosecution and persecution.”
Conservatives find this reversal quite amusing.
Adams closed the door to Gotham and called for the international border with Mexico to be locked down until further notice. In a matter of days, the Biden administration resumed building the Big Beautiful Wall in Texas and deporting a horde of Venezuelans back to their last known addresses.
Of course, number 45 quickly commented: “I will await his apology.”
Also chiming in was Olivia John in Jackson, MS, quoting the Breitbart article: “’On Friday, Biden told reporters that ‘I was told that I had no choice’ but to build the additional wall section. Jill must be watching polling numbers.”
Knock Off the War Machine
What the Biden administration is doing in the realm of foreign affairs seems concerning – much ado about the $6 Billion released to Iran just weeks ago. “Now Hamas, one of the terrorist proxies they brag openly about funding, is launching a sophisticated and expensive attack on Israel. Foreign Policy matters,” Canadian journalist Daniel Boardman wrote on X.
“Hamas is being funded and equipped by Tehran … which the US has been appeasing and enabling in recent months, as billions of dollars have flowed into the regime’s coffers,” wrote Jake Wallis Simons, editor of the Jewish Chronicle.
Eileen Wieneke in Chicago wasn’t surprised. “They [Democrats] do love war and conflict,” she pointed out. “And who can forget, giving all the military equipment, weapons of war and an air base to Afghanistan,” reminded Shon Complin in San Antonio.
Those Americans who disagree with the US funding terrorists and the Russian war on Ukraine may start looking more closely at the only antiwar candidate in the presidential race: Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
