Because Walt Blackman needs an enemy he thinks he can easily beat, in his recently disclosed run for a U.S.House seat, he decided to paint a target on Col. Wendy Rogers’ backside and denounce her for being a member of OathKeepers, even though Col Rogers, Walt Blackman and I are all veterans.

February 23, 2021

At first the impeachment trial of former president Trump seemed silly. Why spend time and money to remove a man from office when he is no longer in office?
