See No Evil!

And yes, that includes CNN, MSNBC, and sadly, many on Fox News as well!

Here are a few more thoughts on the 2020 election!

Data is now coming in that is proving criminal fraud in the 2020 Presidential election! Much of this data is simple math and does not require video surveillance, an eye-witness account, or a smoking gun.

Perhaps that is why the Arizona Supreme Court has consented to hear Trump’s case, and why Texas has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to rule four battleground state elections unconstitutional. Evidence is becoming so blatant it can no longer plausibly be ignored.

According to one analyst, there were 16 dumps of exactly 4800 sets of digital (not actual) “votes” for Biden in the early morning hours in one state and 44 dumps of exactly 6000 digital (not actual) “votes” in another state. Tell me … what are the statistical odds of that actually happening?

In sample after sample, Biden’s victory just doesn’t add up. I wonder why that is … ?

It is because decisive, targeted, and non-ubiquitous election fraud occurred on November 3, 2020!

This fraud was not actually “wide-spread” in the way we understand the term. It was very targeted, with only six locations being used. However, if these six locations were flipped, it would flip these “swing states” and their electoral college votes.

The reason they got caught is that Trump was on his way to an easy win. Do you remember what the election counts were when you went to bed? Trump was way, way ahead. This forced the cheaters at these six locations to go full-on criminal by intimidating observers, taping newspapers over windows, reporting a leaking toilet as a “water main break,” and shutting down counting and then immediately restarting once Republican observers had departed. However, the sheer number of votes needed also broke the algorithm because they needed too many “fraudulent” votes to ensure Biden won, and it became obvious to anyone willing to look. If the numbers had been much closer when we went to bed, they probably would have gotten away with it. And sadly, because of the swamp, they still might. That would be bad.

And this is why the left isn’t calling for transparency, audits, or open communication to build confidence in the electorate. It is exactly why they are obfuscating, playing legal games, defying court orders, and howling in the press that it is all over.

Ask your self, is this the behavior of a group that won an election fair and square?

Looking for proof? Look right here!

It is unbelievable, yes! But it is also all documented, cited, and sourced. Of course, it won’t matter if you’ve already OD’d on the Kool-Aid.


And while I am at it, here are my thoughts on mask mandates …

From a recent messenger chat with a friend. The friend’s name has been omitted out of respect for his privacy and the chat message slightly edited for clarity …

#####, my comment was somewhat “tongue in cheek” and was in no way directed at you or anyone else who uses caution and common sense in avoiding contracting or spreading disease. I wear a mask when it is appropriate. But I don’t see anyone in this group blindly following the commands of little dictator wannabes!

I have seen too many examples of dictatorial nonsense and imperial edicts enacted on Americans by Democrat elitists with little thought or basis in science or fact to have much patience for more of the same. They are simply using coronavirus as a justification. Even this massive mail-in voting push and the chaos it has caused was justified by the media perpetuated COVID panic. This was not a coincidence. This is being used as a vehicle for all kinds of agenda-driven power grabs. This is made especially clear since these edict issuers do not follow the very rules that they demand we follow. Pelosi, Gavin, Whitmore, and Fauci are just a few examples recently in the news (if you look beyond CNN and MSLSD). More finite examples are everywhere if you only look.

For instance, you can safely board and fly on a plane with a mask on, but you can’t safely go to church wearing a mask? You can take a sailboat out on a lake in Michigan and be safe from COVID, but you’re not safe in a powerboat? A family can drive to a golf course together in a mini-van, but once there, they all have to ride in separate golf carts? Explain the science behind that to me. Or, is it just more agenda-driven erosion of our rights and working toward Hillary Clinton’s stated goal of a more “compliant citizenry.”

So, while I will not blindly submit to imperial edicts like unenforceable mask mandates issued by the US’s agenda-driven domestic enemies, I will wear a mask when appropriate to protect those I care about. But it will be my decision as a free American to do so. That is how it must be because once you give up your freedom, it is typically a bloody mess (civil war or revolution) to get it back. I believe this is how most Americans should feel, and I suspect how you feel.

Well, maybe except Biden, who I assume probably wore his mask while sitting alone in his basement.


So, I am done with political rantings … at least for a while. I am not particularly sorry if this offends anyone. Our country’s welfare and the integrity of our election system and system of government are at stake here!

Mainer v. Pritzker: Let Liberty Ring!

Finally, a judge who understands the U.S. Constitution, the Law, and Common Sense and how they work together.

I do not have the words to describe what I felt reading this excerpt from Judge McHaney’s ruling. Hopefully, someday our courts will all have live media access, and we could hear this decision in the judge’s own voice complete with any accompanying emphasis and emotions. For now, we will have to accept the transcript of Judge McHaney’s ruling yesterday against Governor Pritzker.

Here is the meat of his decision, Page 75, beginning at line 17.

“Since the inception of this insanity, the following regulations, rules or consequences have occurred:”

  • I won’t get COVID if I get an abortion, but I will get COVID if I get a colonoscopy.
  • Selling pot is essential, but selling goods and services at a family-owned business is not.
  • Pot wasn’t even legal, and pot dispensaries didn’t even exist in this state until five months ago, and, in those five months, they have become essential. Still, a family-owned business in existence for five generations is not.
  • A family of six can pile in their car and drive to Carlyle Lake without contracting COVID but, if they all get in the same boat, they will.
  • We are told that kids rarely contract the virus, and sunlight kills it, but summer youth programs, sports programs are canceled.
  • Four people can drive to the golf course and not get COVID but, if they play in a foursome, they will.
  • If I go to Walmart, I won’t get COVID but, if I go to church, I will.
  • Murderers are released from custody, while small business owners are threatened with arrest if they have the audacity to attempt to feed their families.

These are just a few of the examples of rules, regulations, and consequences that are arbitrary, capricious, and completely devoid of anything even remotely approaching common sense. State’s attorneys in this state, county sheriffs, mayors, city councils and county boards have openly and publicly defied these orders followed by threats to withhold funding and revocation of necessary licenses and certifications unless you obey.

“Our economy is shut down because of a flu virus with a 98 percent-plus survival rate. Doctors and experts say different things weekly. The defendant cites models in his opposition. The only thing experts will agree on is that all models are wrong and some are useful. The Centers for Disease Control now says the virus is not easily spread on surfaces.”

“The defendant in this case orders you to stay home and pronounces that, if you leave the state, you are putting people in danger, but his family members traveled to Florida and Wisconsin because he deems such travel essential. One initial rationale why the rules don’t apply to him is that his family farm had animals that needed fed. Try selling that argument to farmers who have had to slaughter their herds because of disruption in the supply chain.”

“When laws do not apply to those who make them, people are not being governed, they are being ruled. Make no mistake, these executive orders are not laws. They are royal decrees. Illinois citizens are not being governed, they are being ruled. The last time I checked Illinois citizens are also Americans and Americans don’t get ruled. The last time a monarch tried to rule Americans, a shot was fired that was heard around the world. That day led to the birth of a nation consensually governed based upon a document which ensures that on this day in this, any American courtroom tyrannical despotism will always lose and liberty, freedom and the constitution will always win.”

Profile of an Adirondack Woman

Sometimes when I share some of my life stories with friends and acquaintances, I get looks and comments like “No way” or “You’re full of it.” I think far too many people spend their lives in tiny bubbles and never get to experience the fantastic world that is out there.

You’ve heard the saying, “We tend to write what we know …”

One of the many things that have amazed me in my short career as an author is the number of women who have given my first book, Serpents Underfoot, great reviews. It was my first book, and because of this, I know it is a little rough around the edges; maybe a bit too much language and a bit “too much information” in the bedroom scenes. But hey, you learn!

I had imagined my audience to be veterans and action/thriller fans. So I was shocked when I began receiving great reviews from female readers. After talking to a few readers, I understood that Serpents Underfoot had several strong female characters, and they really appreciated that.

While I pretty much self-edited Serpents Underfoot, I am working with a real editor for its sequel, Montagnard.

Beth Werner, of Author Connections, has been a professional editor and marketer for over 20 years. She served as the former Director of Marketing and Sales at Kirkus and has worked with Random House, Penguin, MacMillan, Disney Hyperion, Chronicle, Scholastic, FSG, Wiley, and others. Having read Serpents Underfoot, she commented she was also struck by the strength of the female characters in the story and how much she appreciated and enjoyed that. I believe I have carried this through into the sequel, Montagnard.

So, why the strong female characters?

In my life, I have had the privilege of knowing several strong women. Both of my grandmothers were strong women. One was the daughter of a well-known Herkimer, NY lawyer, drove a roadster, wore patent leather boots, and met the world on her terms. She was part Cherokee Indian and related to Robert E. Lee. I think my mother was a lot like her.

My other grandmother was a quiet, caring, and supportive woman. When my grandfather was drafted by the Army and stationed in Japan with General MacArthur after the war, she raised her children, worked in her garden, and was a source of strength for her husband, who was thousands of miles away in a strange land.

I was privileged to date another strong woman for several years, and while things did not work out quite like I hoped they might, I have nothing but respect for her. A medical professional, this lady took on the State Government, unethical “pain pill” clinics, and other issues in a continuous effort to improve the quality of professional medical care for her patients. She is now knee-deep in this battle against the coronavirus.

But, the strongest woman I have ever known was my mother!

Let me introduce you to her …

Ardis Gilbert was born in Ilion, NY, the daughter of Erwin and Eileen Klippel. She began nursing school at the age of 16 and graduated as an RN from Albany Medical Center in 1959. After moving to North Adams, MA, with her husband, Curt, Ardis graduated Magna Cum Laude in Mathematics and Summa Cum Laude in Administration from North Adams State Community College. She went on to teach mathematics for many years.

My mother enjoyed hiking, camping, backpacking, and canoe trips with family and friends, and jokingly founded the Adirondack Women’s Club for female family and friends who met the criteria.

A few family tales …

Albany, NY Granary Fire

When my mom was still a freshmen nursing student at the Albany Medical Center, a disastrous granary fire occurred in Albany. Many were severely burned in the fire, and the medical center was overrun. During the emergency, she stayed in an elevator with a doctor and performed emergency tracheotomies on burn victims as they were being taken up to the burn center for care.

One Crazy Old Lady

Serving a tour as a nurse in a ward that housed the criminally insane, she prepared to check in on an old woman who needed her medication. Nurses were not supposed to enter this woman’s room without an orderly present. However, there were no orderlies available. So, mom looked in the room and saw that the woman was resting peacefully and seemed quite calm. Being rather fearless, she decided not to wait for an orderly. My mother leaned close to the patient, the old woman sprang on her and began strangling her. She was amazingly strong, and my mother couldn’t pry her fingers loose. Fortunately, some orderlies arrived just in time and pried the crazy old woman’s fingers from around her neck. A few more moments and I would not even be here. It was a lesson my mother took to heart.

Hand washer escapee

In the same ward, there was a young man who continually washed his hands to the point that he would scrub the skin off them. I never knew what he did, but it was like he was trying desperately to get the blood off his hands. The doctors had to keep special gloves covering his hands and sometimes had to restrain him. During one of his more lucid moments, he was calmly walking the halls when someone accidentally let the locked door to the ward stay open a few seconds. In a flash, the man was out the door and making a dash for freedom. Seeing him go, my mother took right off after him and chased him through the medical center. She was a small younger woman but tackled him around the legs in a manner that would make any football player proud. He was, at this point, in the main entrance lobby to the medical center.

My strong female characters

While not intentional, I guess the strong female characters in Serpents Underfoot are composites of the courage and strength I saw in the many strong women I have had the privilege to know during my life. And after the reaction from my readers, I felt it essential to continue that.

My mother lost a fight with cancer almost two years ago now. But she met that implacable enemy with her head held high, and she fought the good fight. She was 78 years old. I guess these characters in my books are my way of remembering and celebrating the strong women I have known, including my mother.

The world can certainly use a lot more of them.

A Little Coronavirus Truth

Be careful reading this if you are easily offended.

Hey people!

This is a time for all Americans to come together. It is time to put aside petty politics and work together to get our country and its citizens through this Coronavirus crisis! You can go back to hating each other once this is over.

Anyway, that enough of that. I just had to get this off my chest. I do try to keep my personal politics out of my blog posts. But this should not be a political issue. Let’s stop making it one!

And I just decided I am not concerned if this post offends anyone. I think that if this post does offend you, you should ask yourself a solemn question. Why?

Also, I have a solution if you are still having trouble finding toilet paper. This is simple enough, anyone should be able to do it!

National Day of Prayer

The President announced this day of prayer on Friday shortly after declaring the United States was in a state of emergency over the fast-spreading virus.

In our times of greatest need, Americans have always turned to prayer to help guide us through trials and periods of uncertainty. As we continue to face the unique challenges posed by the coronavirus pandemic, millions of Americans are unable to gather in their churches, temples, synagogues, mosques, and other houses of worship. But in this time we must not cease asking God for added wisdom, comfort, and strength, and we must especially pray for those who have suffered harm or who have lost loved ones. I ask you to join me in a day of prayer for all people who have been affected by the coronavirus pandemic and to pray for God’s healing hand to be placed on the people of our Nation.

President Donald J Trump

I would just like to add that …

I do hope the media and some of our smaller-minded politicians (wherever they fall on the political spectrum) can put aside politics, the hate, and the hyper-partisan bickering and come together to work toward resolving this national crisis. I believe far too many are doing much more harm than good!

And for Pete Sakes, enough with the toilet paper hoarding!
