God help the USA

By Editor |

To the Editor; I read that Bill Clinton and ex-president Bush went to Chicago and spoke to Ukrainians. In days past Bill might have flown there in his good friend, Jeffery Epstein’s plane. It is always more calming to fly in a plane you are familiar with! Trumps four-year term with no major world problems…

Hunter Biden’s laptop

By Editor |

To the Editor: Hunter Biden abandoned his laptop at the repair shop prior to the 2020 presidential election. It contained incriminating information about Hunter and his father, Joe, known as the “Big Man.” Tony Isobolinski was a witness to much of his information.

Trying to justify war

By Editor |

To the Editor: Friday, the Kremlin suggested a change in strategy in their war in Ukraine by announcing Russia was focusing on the “liberation” of the Donbas region in eastern Ukraine, where Russian backed rebels have partially controlled since 2014. Using words like liberation, is an attempt to justify a war of aggression against a…

Supporting the Ukrainians

By Editor |

To the editor: Kudos to former Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton for coming together to lend their support to Ukraine. The ex-presidents, one a Republican and one a Democrat, have never let their political parties stop them from working together.

A more comprehensive plan

By Editor |

To the editor: Darrell Dodge’s “One way ticket” (column on March 17) plan to deal with gun violence is a good one I think. However, it may be a bit of a knee jerk reaction to the violence plaguing our country. After all, you’re just as dead if you’re beaten to death, stabbed to death,…

Democrats support USA?

By Editor |

To the editor: Putin was “very savvy” and “very shrewd” not to attack Ukraine during President Trumps term in office. This was because Trump made the USA energy independent and “very strong” and “very influential” on the world stage. Putin knew our excess energy could supply Europe’s needs and Trump was trying to wean Europe…

Republicans support Ukraine?

By Editor |

To the Editor: Today the Scoop, Senator Grassley’s email to his constituents, had the headline “America Stands with the People of Ukraine,” describing Putin as “inhumane to benefit his own ego. He has no respect for agreements Russia signed to respect the sovereignty of Ukraine. He’s killing innocent people like Stalin did in the1930s.” Not…
