Prioleau Alexander: ‘Something Is Wrong’

And no one is doing anything to fix it …

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

As we put 2023 into the rearview mirror, one comment that sticks with me was Tucker Carlson’s recent statement that … “Something is wrong.”

You can feel it. You know it. But given the never-ending news cycle, and the speed at which news is stuffed down your gullet, it can be hard to put your finger on it — but you know something is wrong in America.

Let’s take a look at some of the things that feel odd, and old — despite the fact they are all recent events. I won’t dig down and make the case for each of these realities, because I’ve done so before numerous times … and you know they are true by virtue of the fact you’ve seen them with your own eyes.

I believe it is the summation of these events that’s leading to that sick feeling about the Republic. These events lurk in the back of our minds, but keeping them in your conscious mind is too much … you’ve got other stuff to do.

Unfortunately for me, it’s my job to keep track of this madness.



(The White House)

Joe Biden has dementia. Pretty bad dementia, to boot. Everyone knows it, but he’s still wandering around shaking hands with the air and running the country.  Yet the media and Democrats pretend he’s fine… and Republicans do nothing about it.

Mitch McConnell is obviously a mental case as well … you don’t freeze up with your mouth in the death-O position if you’re well. He then joked about it. Hilarious, Turtle Man.

Senator John Fetterman is a stroke victim — and can’t speak intelligibly, or dress in a coat and tie. The media calls him “brave.”

Dianne Feinstein refused to give up her Senate seat until she was, well, dead. Same with Ruth Bader Ginsberg on the SCOTUS. More and more our Congress is beginning to look like an assisted care facility. Having zero desire to spend a few golden years focused on your family means you are either a sociopath, or you’re trying to stay in power to hide your crimes.

The entire Biden family is laughably corrupt — at this point it’s all in writing, bank records, and dozens of recently discovered fraudulent corporations — yet the media and Democrats act like none of it has happened … and Republicans (for now) have done nothing about it.

Former FBI director James Comey knowingly lied to a FISA court in writing, got caught, and nothing happened to him — or any of his cronies who perjured themselves … yet the media and Democrats pretend he didn’t … and Republicans do nothing about it.

Comey also judged Hillary Clinton’s use of a personal email address as legal, but added one sentence later that the decision did not mean others would be found criminally liable in future/similar circumstances.

Retired joint chiefs of staff chairman Mark Milley took no responsibility for the deadly debacle that ensued when America fled Afghanistan. In fact, no one did. Their excuse was, “we didn’t know how fast the Taliban would take back the country,” when in fact nothing was needed to stop them but airpower and cannon artillery. The media and Democrats pretend the excuse is legitimate … and Republicans do nothing about it.

Numerous members of Congress were captured on video calling for increased violence during the BLM riots (the ones where you couldn’t get Covid), yet no one addresses it. The media, in fact, says it didn’t happen, despite video evidence.

The latest Supreme Court justice was chosen specifically because she was “a woman of color,” yet under oath she could not say what a woman is because … ”I’m not a biologist.”

The entire nation has seen Biden telling his chuckling sycophants about the time he threatened to withhold aid from Ukraine unless the prosecutor investigating his son’s company was fired … yet the media and Democrats pretend the video doesn’t exist … and Republicans do nothing about it.

You’re not crazy … these things are facts.

The FBI is openly corrupt, and suffers no consequences. Americans yawn when they conduct SWAT-team pre-dawn raids on octogenarians charged with non-violent civil offenses … yet the media and Democrats pretend the raids were appropriate… and Republicans do nothing about it.

The DOJ has reached the point where it openly operates like an arm of the DNC … also with no consequences.

Working hand in hand, the FBI and DOJ drummed up the Russia Hoax against President Trump, and pressed it for four years. Now, every allegation has been proven not only to be a lie, but shown to be a criminal conspiracy. No one has been held accountable. Yet the media and Democrats pretend it didn’t happen … and Republicans do nothing about it.

Anthony Fauci and the NIAID shut down America—and by extension the world—for two years, and got everything wrong. Every decision has been not only disproven, but laid bare as negligent. Millions of American children are showing clear mental disabilities as a result of the lockdowns … yet the media and Democrats pretend every decision was legitimate … and Republicans do nothing about it.

Twitter acted under White House orders to suppress the truth on any number of issues that failed to fit their narrative, and were caught red-handed by Elon Musk via the Twitter Files … yet the media and Democrats pretend it didn’t happen … and Republicans do nothing about it.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg testified Facebook also suppressed information they disagreed with, as well … and simply said, “Sorry. My bad.” No repercussions.

Information that was “discovered” by the all-Democrat January 6th “investigation” is missing. This debacle is also the fault of the GOP, as no Republicans participated in the “investigation,” in order to monitor its procedures.

Our military cannot come close to its recruiting goals. Many young men saying “no thanks” to serving the country attribute their decision to the armed forces retreat from masculinity and embracing of woke policies. 

Our education system is broken to the point we should take it out behind the barn and take a hatchet to its neck. The problem is obviously parents, but we pretend it’s not.

The White House has been omitting Hunter Biden’s passenger status aboard Marine One … yet the media and Democrats pretend this hasn’t happened … and Republicans do nothing about it.

The Department of Energy has committed itself all-in for renewable energy, despite the technology’s failure at every turn. Even with the huge subsidies provided by the government, auto manufacturers are gutting their EV vehicle production, because less and less people are dumb enough to buy them. In a hilarious and outright lie, the government is now reporting that in 2024 renewable energy will produce more power than coal.

America is $34 trillion in debt, which costs $659 billion every year to cover the interest. We will soon owe a trillion dollars a year in interest, all the while operating under an annual budget that spends more than it takes in. Mathematics ensure the Republic will collapse on the next generation.

Those in Congress have a loophole regarding Insider Trading laws, which enables them to steal money from a variety of investments that would land the rest of us in jail… yet the media simply ignores this story… and of course Congress does nothing about it.

The VA was caught red-handed placing elderly veterans on “death panels,” believing they’d die before their care could be provided. This story was in the news for about a week, and vanished.

Under the Biden administration, America willingly gave up energy independence.

How can these things be happening in the light of day? Why is no one even addressing them?



(World Economic Forum)

Klaus Schwab, founder of the World Economic Forum, announced recently that once AI has everyone’s personal data, it will move computing capabilities from “analytical” to “predictive,” thus eliminating the need for elections. Artificial Intelligence will simply tell us what the outcome would be if we bothered to vote.

China is waging an increasingly dangers game of cat and mouse with America, both militarily and economically … without any real consequences imposed by the President or Congress.

The war in Ukraine has proven unwinnable by Ukraine, as they are unable to push Russia out of the areas they’re now occupying. No peace talks have occurred, and we’ve provided so much aid, President Biden slurred (aloud and before the world) that we’ve run dangerously low on our own supplies.

Israel was attacked by the duly-elected terrorist government of “Palestine,” which they are now eradicating. The media has now, per my prediction, turned on Israel as the aggressor… claiming Israel is causing too many civilian deaths. (Dresden, anyone? Tokyo? Hiroshima? War in Iraq?)

Iran continues to develop nuclear weapons while America loosens restrictions on them, and provides them with billions of dollars… yet the media and Democrats pretend this isn’t happening… and Republicans do nothing about it.

Entire nations are being held hostage by China, due to the debt they’ve incurred agreeing to have the Silk Road paved across their country.

Gigantic funds like Blackrock are investing based on company’s ESG ratings, a clear violation of the laws regarding their fiduciary duties to their investors… yet the media supports their position, and Congress allows them to conduct business in violation of federal law.

America no longer has a southern border, and millions of unvetted people now live among us—some who might well be Islamic terrorists, already on no-fly lists… yet the media and Democrats claim open borders are good thing, or claim it’s closed, depending on the narrative of the week. Republicans do nothing about it.

A small number of far-left deviants are shrieking that children be allowed to change their sexual chemistry before they’re old enough to be trusted with a driver’s license—yet the media, schools, and government reports this as if the majority of Americans support it.

The all-Democrat Colorado Supreme Court has ruled Trump cannot be on their presidential ballot because … without a conviction, because they “feel” he participated in an insurrection.



Based on their willingness to bully and arrest citizens during Covid, America’s police seem willing to enforce any orders, no matter how absurd or unconstitutional. Even with body cams and video phones, again and again we see them using unnecessary force.

Douglass Mackey (a horrible human in real life) has been sent to prison for a satirical tweet encouraging Hillary Clinton voters to “vote by text.” He was convicted of “conspiracy against rights.” In case your head just exploded, let me repeat: He has been sentenced to 17 months in prison for a joke. In other news, Joe Biden supporters can vote early by texting #IAmRetarded to 843-555-6743.

Major airlines have pledged not to hire the best and safest pilots, but “diverse” pilots… yet the media and Democrats pretend it’s a good thing… and the FAA and Republicans do nothing about it.

Those who called for violence against the unvaxxed have flatly refused to take the latest injection, and their beloved leaders are asking for “grace and forgiveness.” The media ignores the fact 98 percent of Americans have refused the new vax, a number that would include 49 million registered Democrats.

Jeffrey Epstein is dead, and Ghislaine Maxwell is in prison, for trafficking under-age women to _______. Fill in the blank. Oh, you can’t?  That’s because the list of names of the men who flew to Epstein’s Island on Lolita One has been suppressed for years. The media and Congress have ignored the story. (A federal court judge has recently ordered the names be unsealed … but could that actually happen? We’ll see).

Less than three years ago, BLM and ANTIFA led riots across the nation, which included arson, murder, rape, looting, and assault. They were virtually untouched by the police, and per capita virtually zero arrests were made.

The Chief of the Capitol Police told Tucker Carlson in no uncertain terms, “January 6th was a set-up,” yet the media and Democrats pretend he didn’t … and Republicans do nothing about it.



Forty percent of all births are out-of-wedlock. It’s almost 80 percent among black Americans in 2023 … yet the media and Democrats view this is a non-issue, and respond that even citing such facts is racist as opposed to an accelerating decline American culture and morality.

Healthcare has been handed over to virtually unregulated insurance companies and Big Pharma, while transferring wealth away from the doctors and nurses taking care of us. Unlike other countries, the cost of our drugs is not regulated, enabling Big Pharma to make their money in the United States, and sell for pennies on the dollar in other countries. And because Big Pharma owns Congress, this issue isn’t being addressed in any way.

The average America reads at a 7th grade level, and 19 percent of high school graduates are functionally illiterate … yet Democrats blame this on a lack of funding, not poor teaching and even worse parenting.

Chicago is a war zone, and Los Angeles/ San Francisco are becoming homeless encampments, yet the media and the Democrats pretend they aren’t … and their residents continue to elect the same leaders.

Dozens of multi-billion-dollar retailers are shutting down in Blue cities, unable to make money due to organized theft and flash gangs storming their stores. Virtually no arrests are being made.

America recently went through a period of hysteria so insane, Aunt Jemima Syrup needed to change its name, despite boasting an 80 percent share of the market among Black Americans. The mobs were so uneducated, they also tore down a statue of Harriet Tubman.

BLM failed to be rated as “poor” by Charity Watch, because they could not even find enough financial data to even rate it. Charity Watch CEO described BLM as a rudderless ship, adrift at sea, with a cargo of millions of dollars, but no Captain.



Winter in Washington DC: US Capitol at winter sunset

There is indeed something very wrong in America.

The fact that Republicans in Congress continue to do nothing to combat these endless crimes is just as frightening as anything else. The response is always, “our hands are tied.”

Then how do they explain the fact the Democrats win at everything? Why can they work the Congressional system so masterfully, and Republicans can’t even get a wall built that’s approved and paid for? A wall which is now being cut up and sold for pennies on the dollar?

What the hell — is this level of criminal insanity new to the Swamp?

No. It’s obviously been going on for decades — perhaps much longer — but none of us knew. Only because of the election of Trump did the lid blow off the pot. If Hillary had won, the criminals in charge would’ve simply marched along, secretly usurping the Constitution, jailing political opponents, increasing dependence on “the State,” suppressing information, and funding chaos at home and abroad.

But now we do know. And like the Republicans in Congress, we’re doing nothing about it.

My wife asked me why I’d spend so much time writing a piece like this. Good question.

It’s because they don’t care about you … they want your children. And they’re winning.

“Something is wrong.”

What ever happened to Cucker? Haven’t seen or heard from him in ages.

I guess when you’ve been fired in disgrace from all three major cable news companies, even other third tier network don’t really want you.

If is one superpower MAGA goons possess, it having zero sense of shame.

It’s the only way one can blatantly lie and project their behaviors on others without a second thought.

A normal person would think “I’m a complete hypocrite if I say that. Nevermind” or “Ya know, I’m a liar if I tell people this. I’m better than that!”

Not MAGA deplorables. They look for lies to tell and tell them proudly. They even type up whole blog posts full of misinformation and projection.

Can you imagine being that morally bankrupt?

Prioleau: you could shut these people up if you posted sources….but it would be longer than the article!!
It IS all true. And you are so correct in saying without DJT, none of it would have been discovered.
Thank you for putting it all in one place. It is scandalous and terrifying.

“It’s because they don’t care about you … they want your children. And they’re winning.” Attended a critical race theory presention by American Experiment last year. As I left the building, a protester shouted out to me, ” I have young kids in the school system. Things will change when YOU’RE DEAD!!”

They not only want our children, they want us dead. 100% agree with Prioleau Alexander.

This bothers me ALOT! The fact that
Prioleau Alexander (for FITZ NEWS) aptly articulates all of the “wrongs” in this country, this world and this time and never mentions the orange madman who tried to over throw the US government/ constitution makes ALL of this “news organization ” suspect!!! I live in SC and have used FITZ as one of my primary sources of information daily.

I am a Republican who is absolutely sickened by (my) that political party. To infer that a demented president and corrupt Dems are the main issues in America and never even mention the disgusting litany of “my” party’s sins is tantamount to participating in your own WRONGS (like Fox, CNN etc etc) SHAME ON YOU FITZ.

This changes my view of FITZ COMPLETELY!

What Happened to FITS December 28, 2023 at 10:12 am

No one is immune to propaganda.

It’s easy to make fun of Prioleau. It’s probably the only entertaining thing on this site anymore if I’m being honest. The reality though is that Prioleau is (most likely) just your average old white dude with a propaganda-addled brain, desperately trying to read tea leaves to figure out the mysteries of the world, only no one has told him he’s just staring at pine needles.

I’m sorry to say that you will find no redeeming qualities in him. If he’s not smart, he’s a true believer and is already too far gone. If he is smart, then he knows a lot of what he’s saying is flat out wrong, but he’s saying it to grift the true believers because that is by far the most lucrative position to be in when it comes to conservative politics. To be frank, the dude doesn’t sound like he’s smart enough to be on the grifter path here. There’s an art to it, and he’s clearly at the kindergarten finger painting level in that regard.

Functionally though, it doesn’t matter which Prioleau (or Will, or anyone else for that matter) falls in because either way they are willing participants in the same project, they have an audience the average person does not, they are fueling all of this to continue marching forward. In any case, they are certainly not trying to be part of the solution in any regard.

I think you’ve found yourself outside of the “not smart” category here by not swallowing everything hook line and sinker, but my suggestion is to look around your party, both the politician side and the voter side, and determine what percentage of it is not true believers or grifters, and make a decision for yourself if your party can even be salvaged. You don’t have to guess my answer probably, but I’m not going to assume you will come to the same conclusion, I really want you to decide for yourself on it.

Please don’t take this to mean you should be a Democrat instead. I feel like most people can come to an understanding that both parties are pretty terrible, but one has clearly gone off the rails here. That doesn’t mean another bad party is a good fit. If you are clinging to your conservative convictions, that’s fine, but be part of a movement to overthrow Republicans as the representative party of conservatives.

I’d like to say we’ll get over this in the next ten or twenty years but I think so many folks are so far gone that it’s not going to be resolved in my lifetime, and I’m still pretty young myself. Things are always unpredictable though, so who knows?

Nanker Phelge December 28, 2023 at 2:56 pm

Something is definitely wrong when the leading Republican presidential candidate wishes anyone who disagrees with him to “rot in hell” and is more complimentary of murderous dictators than the American president.
