At 4:22 a.m. on Nov. 8, I went outside to watch Earth’s shadow begin to swallow up the moon. The weather was perfect: cloudless and cool.

That I knew the exact timeline speaks to scientific advances underway before construction of the Great Pyramids. A manned moon landing further demystified the enormity of space. The new James Webb Space Telescope has revealed images beyond comprehension.

The Biden Left is desperate to convince the American People that America is a he can continue his tyranny. America was founded as a Republic...government by the People...not the Greedy Self-indulgent ELITES.

Well, I’ll certainly be there for the next eclipse, enjoying life in the best country in the history of the planet, by the Grace of God, enjoying an environment that has always been in great shape and continues to get better thanks to Capitalism. In 2025 we’ll also be enjoying a Real President back in the White House, Trump, DeSantis, Jordan, Meadows, Blackwell, Greene or one of many other terrific Conservative Libertarian leaders on the rise.
