Good start to the morning

My morning isn’t right if I miss this podcast. It is such a daily routine to listen to. I love it. Short and very informative

Deep State doing what Deep State does

We are back into war again. Neither the president or vice knew the Syria bombing was coming. The State Dept. will do what they do. The Pentagon will do what the do.

When asked for a comment, Biden’s Visiting Angels said no comment. He is eating his jello.

Feb 25 podcast

The two women talking about vaccination and the website are very rude to the current administration. Trumps a ministration did not do anything and the way these two ladies are talking is like when Joe Biden became president on January 20 on January 21 as website should’ve been up and running. I thought this podcast and network was a lot better but you’re not. Get your head out of your butt it takes time to start in a ministration and you both sound like it needs to be snap snap right away. I’ve decided not to listen to you guys anymore
