Shocking! Dems Want to Provide COVID-19 Vaccine to Blacks and Browns First, Letting Everyone Else Die
This is a very sensitive topic that our nation is sure to discuss in a calm and rational manner. While there are no vaccines available as of the moment, that has not stopped people from speculating about who would receive the first dosages. It should be pretty obvious how the order of things would go. Of course, children would all need to be vaccinated, so that schools can resume normal functionality.
The elderly and those who work on the front lines in the world of medicine also need to be at the head of the line. The same goes for those who have the sort of preexisting conditions that are aggravated by exposure to the virus. This should all be common sense. Even the president would probably agree. He would even offer up tweets to confirm this logic.
So why are these simple things so hard for the Democrats to successfully grasp? It’s a thorny subject, for sure. No one is saying that there are any easy solutions that can be implemented quickly. It’s a good thing that this conversation is taking place now, though. We don’t need to get too far ahead of ourselves when it comes to this stuff but it still needs to be discussed early on.
Black and Latino people have become infected with the virus at three times the rate of whites, and have died nearly twice as frequently. Many of them have jobs that keep them from working at home, rely on public transportation or live in cramped homes that increase their risk of exposure. They are more likely to suffer from underlying health problems, including diabetes and obesity, that raise the risk of hospitalization and death. Not only do the groups have less access to health services, they have a documented history of receiving unequal care…
[T]here will be a gap between the first doses coming off the manufacturing lines and a stockpile large enough to vaccinate the U.S. population. “I would say months,” Dr. José R. Romero, the chairman of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, predicted…
“I think we need to deal with this issue at this time with the information that we have. And it is: They are groups that need to be moved to the forefront, in my opinion.”…
“It’s racial inequality — inequality in housing, inequality in employment, inequality in access to health care — that produced the underlying diseases,” Dr. Matthew said in an interview. “That’s wrong. And it’s that inequality that requires us to prioritize by race and ethnicity.”
Otherwise, we are going to be left to have these tough conversations once the vaccine has already been released and by then, it is going to be too late. The Democrats have their own ideas as to how the vaccine should be distributed. It won’t surprise you to learn that they are pretty far out and meant as a form of virtue signaling.
When the first vaccines roll off the assembly line, there is going to be a gap period. In other words, it will take at least a few months before they can be provided to the American people. Everyone is going to have their reason why they should be first in line and that’s fairly inevitable. We understand the idea of prioritizing minority citizens who have special needs but telling everyone who is white that they have to wait does not seem like a smart idea.
Can you imagine the protests that would take place if this sort of decision was made? Clearly, the Democrats are saying whatever they have to at the moment but they are still playing with fire regardless. People are sure to remember these statements when it comes time to head to the polls. All of the citizens who were left to die by their Democratic leaders would not be looking to keep them in power.
The general idea makes some level of sense. After all, African-Americans and Latinos are affected by the virus at a greater rate than their white counterparts. There has to be a better way to go about this process, though. The threat of litigation should be enough to scare off the Democrats but they are still going to persist at the moment.
The woke politicians and epidemiologists who were willing to look the other way on large gatherings as long as they are protests are definitely going to test everyone’s patience on this. We can already see visions in our head. It’ll be wintertime and the second COVID wave will be ravaging the population. A vaccine is finally released but everyone is not allowed to receive it. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist (or an epidemiologist) to predict widespread anger in this hypothetical instance.
Fortunately, we believe that cooler heads will prevail and a preliminary plan will be decided upon that works for everyone. A Penn public health expert has the perfect solution: a point system. Under this system, all lower income Americans (including whites) would be given the chance to head to the front of the line. That seems a lot more likely to work than the Democrats’ idea but no one tell them that! They’re too busy scrounging for woke points.
Video: Do You Recognize This Suspected BLM Supporter Wanted in Murder of 8-Year Old?
The death of Secoriea Turner in Atlanta has caused many protesters to stop and take stock of their cause. She was murdered in her mother’s car on July 4th, as protesters decided to open fire on the vehicle because they attempted to pull into a parking lot that they were guarding. The Atlanta police have zeroed in on a suspect in this case and video has been released.
According to a police spokesman, there are at least three other suspects that are believed to be involved. When questions were asked about the case, the police began to address various claims that have been circulating in the streets of Atlanta. There is a vicious rumor circulating about the people in the car at the time, as there are some who believe that they pulled a gun on the protesters first.
The police officers stated there is no video evidence that such an event occurred. Meanwhile, there was another rumor about the car. Stories have spread about the car ending up in the middle of a crossfire that was taking place between two different vehicles. The police spokesman confirmed that this rumor was also false.
The car was specifically targeted and none of the aforementioned narratives have any truth to them. Why did this horrific tragedy even happen? As it turns out, there is no real mystery to it. During the previous two weeks before the murder of this small child, there were issues brewing when it came to the roadblock that was set up by the local Wendy’s.
A group of armed citizens are said to have taken over the area and roadblocks were set up on University Avenue. They have been shooting at local residents lately, too. “My husband literally just missed getting caught in the crossfire when he was on his way home,” says Kimberlee Jones. What kind of world are we living in when people are not able to make their way to and from work without having to worry?
The area has been a magnet for shootings lately and we are tired of hearing about it. Not in the sense that we are going to ignore these issues but in the sense that we are fed up with seeing honest, hard working Americans suffering because a few folks feel like it’s their personal right to go around tearing things up and shooting anyone who disagrees.
A group of people has taken over the burned-out property of the Wendy’s on University Avenue where Rayshard Brooks was shot and killed. They have refused to leave.
People who live in the neighborhood said they are no longer protesters, but people using the space for their own gain…
They said that people block the street, and sometimes will not even allow residents to pass.
“My husband literally just missed getting caught in the crossfire when he was on his way home,” said Kimberlee Jones. “And people have been shot and have been hurt.”
She lives about a mile from where Rayshard Brooks was shot and killed, and said it’s been difficult to get through her neighborhood since a group of people took over the parking lot where it happened.
We are well past the point of peaceful protest here. Innocent citizens are fearing for their lives and they are wondering where else they can turn. Authorities were well aware of what was taking place and they were not willing to do anything about it. They allowed the violence to reach the point of no return and now everyone else is being made to suffer because of their delays.
Emotions may have been raw but what about the families that are forced to bury their loved ones? Their emotions are probably raw right now, too. Even the city’s council members are not safe. A city councilwoman claims that she was also stopped by the protesters when she attempted to pass through the area.
Sad situation someone today and yesterday at Wendy's that is blocked off by armed young men with long guns and pistols. All businesses surrounding are boarded. The tension is in the air and emotions are raw. Police are not in sight. Is this Atlanta? No! We must rise up! pic.twitter.com/At86bIAQYL

The situation was described to the interim police chief and they were told that the group had essentially taken over the streets. From the looks of it, the citizens of Atlanta are dealing with their own version of the CHOP situation. Police monitored the situation from a respectful distance but they were not able or willing to intervene when officers were assaulted.
Protesters at the scene are calling the mayor of Atlanta a liar, claiming that they had nothing to do with the shooting. This begs the question: if the protesters weren’t responsible for the death of a small child, who is? The police are doing their best and gathering information wherever they can. That’s the only solace that we can take in what is going on right now.
Biden Declares Police Is the Enemy of the American People
Joe Biden has done his best to dance around the true issues taking place in America and appear to be as moderate as possible. Clearly, he wasn’t enamored with the results because he is now pivoting to left wing lunacy. It was only a matter of time, though. He was always going to embrace the movement to defund police departments.
It was a matter of when, not if. Biden bumbled and stumbled his way through yet another interview, sitting down with Ady Barkan this time. He’s a health care activist who speaks with a computerized voice because of complications related to terminal amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Biden was quick to let him know that he’s finally giving in to leftist demands.
Ilhan Omar and her ilk are sure to be proud of themselves. They finally broke Mr. Moderate himself. He went on to say that he “absolutely” supports all of the defunding of American police officers. In his mind, the police have become an enemy to the American people. “They don’t know anybody! They have become the enemy — they’re supposed to be protecting these people,” Biden said.
Joe Biden says police have "BECOME THE ENEMY" and calls for CUTTING police funding: "Yes, absolutely!" pic.twitter.com/hV9KyuqhiX
— Trump War Room – Text TRUMP to 88022 (@TrumpWarRoom) July 8, 2020
He also complained about the “up-armored” equipment that officers are allowed to use, comparing the presence of police officers to a military invasion. Barkan asked Biden if he would be willing to redirect the police’s funding to other causes and he agreed that this would be a great idea. These are not the only anti police beliefs Biden spouted off with during the interview.
If you take the time to watch a longer clip, Biden says that Rayshard Brooks should have been tended to by a mental health counselor on that fateful day in Atlanta. He blames the police for what took place. We figured that we could get through the summer without witnessing a total Biden capitulation but here we are. He’s already pandering to the hysterical left with zero qualms whatsoever.
The Democrats are clearly going to double down on the current anti police mania that is sweeping the nation. That’s their only hope of gaining any meaningful traction in the upcoming election. We are already wondering if Biden is going to be singing the same tune once he receives feedback from his voting base, which tends to be moderate in nature.
There is plenty of time for him to flip flop on this sentiment before the election takes place. We are willing to start the betting pool now. Will it take an extreme act of anti police violence for Biden to walk this back or is he going to try his best to continue to appeal to moderates? Only time will tell if he maintains this stance or if he is bullied into another one before too long.
Biden has a lengthy track record of saying whatever he thinks will get people on his side in that moment before backtracking completely. To make matters worse, the rest of the country now has to wait in fear. If he gets elected, he is already making noise about being a one term president. He would be over 80 years old by the time his first term ends.
That means Kamala Harris or Stacey Abrams could be running the country within four years. While Harris’ past as a hard charging prosecutor might reassure some, she is probably looking to rehabilitate her reputation with the leftists. She’s not going to waltz into the White House and start preaching about the importance of law and order.
Harris (or whoever else ends up in the role) will want to make sure that the status quo remains intact. If Biden says that the police are bad and they need to go, that’s what will happen. Meanwhile, those who are standing in solidarity with the police will be waiting anxiously to find out more about what the future holds. Things are certainly tense at the moment and no one seems to know what will happen next.
Video: Omar Points Out the Dem’s Agenda: Destroy the Us by Any Means Necessary
Ilhan Omar is a Minnesota Democrat who loves to stake her claim as a true radical. Her outlandish statements always attract attention and in a way, we are all complicit for continuing to focus on them. She’s a Marxist at her core and she does not care about the future of America in the slightest. If she could destroy the country from the inside out, she would do so without a second thought.
In her mind, capitalism needs to be destroyed, so that social justice can take place. “We must begin the work of dismantling the whole system of oppression wherever we find it,” Omar said. These words are admirable but when they are coupled with ideas that are actively harmful to the status quo, it is time to take a closer look at what is really being said.
That’s one of the main issues that Democrats experience when it comes to their messaging. They are too worried about appealing to leftists who want to tear it all down. David Steinberg is the investigative journalist who decided to look into the situation. He’s been examining documents and sources for some time now, trying to get to the bottom of the Omar phenomenon.
According to his findings, Omar is alleged to have married her own brother, in an effort to defraud the United States Immigration offices. There are even some who believe that Omar is using a fake name. As for Omar herself, she advances these narratives because she is not willing to answer any questions about them in an honest manner.
She dodges any question about her sketchy past, she won’t acknowledge the bigotry that she participates in and she clearly does not share our love of America. Even Somali community leaders are coming forward to confirm the allegations about Omar marrying her own brother to remain in the United States.

— Steve Guest (@SteveGuest) July 7, 2020
It’s pretty funny to watch someone who made their way into the country in an illegal manner act like the whole system needs to be overthrown. If anything, she is the one who should be staying quiet and hoping that her secret does not come to light. Maybe she thinks that a full overthrow would keep her safe? Only time will tell if that suspicion is a correct one.
None of this is to say that American can never be criticized. In fact, offering intelligent critique is one of the best parts about being an America. However, there is a difference between these types of critiques and calling for a complete and total tear down. There’s a certain level of nuance to these discussions that people are neglecting to mention.
Instead, everyone retreats to their ideological corners and waits to be agreed with by their chosen echo chamber. It’s a terrible way to do things but that’s what we are stuck with at the moment. The worst part of all is that we are not even talking about normal, everyday Americans. We are talking about the sort of people who play a major role in our government’s operations.
It’s like we are living in a world where no one is given a chance to learn the real truth about anything. No wonder everyone is getting so skeptical and looking to foreign sources for information about what is truly going on. Omar’s desire to tear it all down makes everyone wonder what she is hiding and she can only get away with this ruse for so long before it all comes crashing down on her.
All any of us can do is wait for that fateful moment to take place. Omar’s rhetoric is landing her in hot water with a number of conservative thinkers and it won’t be long before the leftists finally decide to turn on her as well. With any luck, the big event will take place before the upcoming elections and we’ll get to see some Democrats stepping away from her hateful garbage.
J.K. Rowling Stands Her Ground on Democrat’s Conversion Therapy Madness
J.K. Rowling has found herself in the news for expressing all sorts of controversial views on social media lately. Trans activists are livid because she has given some contrarian hot takes when it comes to hormone therapy. She compares this form of therapy to the conversion therapy that is used to convert gay people into straights.
When one of her critics came for her over the weekend, she decided to link them with a Twitter thread about the “medicalization” of the gay community. The whole thing started when Rowling liked a tweet from a young trans woman named Sophie. She believes that hormone therapy should only take place a final option of sorts and Rowling agreed with this take.
Hormone prescriptions are the new antidepressants. Yes they are sometimes necessary and lifesaving, but they should be a last resort – not the first option. Pure laziness for those who would rather medicate than put in the time and effort to heal people’s minds.
— Sophie (@Manaxium) July 4, 2020
The social justice warriors who live to patrol her likes and live in her mentions were not having any of that, though. Rowling is attempting to take a nuanced approach towards a very difficult conversation. On social media, this is a form of suicide. Anyone who does not agree with the angry mobs that control social media discourse is taken out behind the woodshed for an old fashioned tongue lashing.
One of the folks who takes the medication that they were discussing took a screenshot of the like. Rowling took offense to what was said, telling the person that she takes her own medications on a regular basis for her mental health issues. She credits the medication for the assistance that she is currently receiving. While she has remained quiet on other topics, this is not something that she is willing to let go.
Who had money on JK Rowling pivoting to supporting those who call people who take mental health medication "lazy"?
I take daily medication to function, this sentiment is beyond offensive, it is actively harmful to millions. pic.twitter.com/7UOgBx0ZLX

She’s ignored the fake tweets that people share with their friends and loved ones, attributing false and harmful statements to her. Rowling has also received a wide range of death and rape threats. When it comes to the medications that she relies upon on an everyday basis, she is not willing to look the other way. At a certain point, enough is enough.
This is absolutely stunning! 11 years old?! You’re SO TALENTED!#TheIckabog https://t.co/oOzazdw3vI
— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) July 5, 2020
Rowling was so furious, she went on for 11 tweets. Her attempt at standing in solidarity with a trans woman was ruined by the people who spend all of their time on social media out for blood. She has written extensively about her struggles with mental health but they would rather harp on her likes and comments on Twitter. That’s all Twitter turns into after awhile, just a bunch of people who beat dead horses into the ground and ignore all facts that don’t support their chosen narrative.
I've ignored fake tweets attributed to me and RTed widely. I've ignored porn tweeted at children on a thread about their art. I've ignored death and rape threats. I'm not going to ignore this. 1/11 pic.twitter.com/hfSaGR2UVa
— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) July 5, 2020
Those who wish to be enlightened should take the time to read the whole thread. It definitely puts Rowling’s views into better perspective. If you were to listen to the Twitter mob, you would think that she is one of the most actively hateful people to walk the planet. At times like these, it is best to let people make their own decisions about you and not bothering to defend yourself.
Rowling had to be truly infuriated to give someone the time of day like this. As it turns out, even celebrities who are rich and famous have their breaking points when it comes to the trials and tribulations of Twitter. We are not surprised that she finally lost it on someone.
The only part where she lost us is when she claimed that she did not care about the bad opinions that were coming her way. The Internet can be a strange place sometimes, forcing people into conversations that they never thought they’d need to have. Rowling is not immune to these sorts of concerns.
Trans activists are only going to continue to try and punish her for having her own beliefs. This is a problem that is not going to go away anytime soon. Rowling might want to be a little bit less online going forward. While the Twitter mob may not have the power to truly “cancel” her, they can definitely continue to make her online experience as annoying as possible.
BLM Terrorists Murder 8-Year-Old Girl in Atlanta
The protesters want everyone to know that black lives matter but their actions and their words are not aligning. There have been waves of shootings in many of the cities where protests are taking place, claiming countless black lives. Did these people not matter? We want these protesters to look in the eyes of the families that they are ruining.
Take Secoriea Turner, for instance. This little girl was brutally murdered in Atlanta over the weekend and we have yet to see any sort of remembrance in her honor. Her mother was attempting to enter a parking lot that the protesters had decided to block off. This was the family’s punishment. Two men fired shots into the vehicle without a moment’s hesitation.
According to police, Secoriea Turner was riding in a car with her mom and an adult friend when car exited the interstate near the intersection of University Avenue and Pryor Road. Police said the driver was attempting to enter the parking lot on the 1200 block of Pryor Road when they were confronted by a group of armed individuals who were illegally blocking the entrance.
Someone in the group began shooting at the car, hitting it multiple times including the shot that hit the child.
The wounded girl was immediately taken to Atlanta Medical Center in a private vehicle, but she did not survive her injuries.
The people suspected of shooting the child were described as a group of black males. One of the shooters wore all black, dressed like a bounty hunter, according to police. The second wore a white t-shirt. A $10,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction. Tipsters can remain anonymous and still receive a reward. Call 404-577-8477.
There were six severe shootings in Atlanta this weekend alone. A police station was also attacked by the protesters. While the mainstream media may have gotten tired of reporting on the protests, they are still taking place on a daily basis in many of America’s liberal strongholds. The group that is suspected in the aforementioned shooting is comprised of black males.
They claim that black lives matter but they did not waste any time murdering an innocent little girl who was riding in a car with her mother. Her hopes and dreams have been snatched away because these protesters were on a power trip. Who do they think they are? That is not their parking lot to guard.
According to reports, one of the men was dressed in all black and resembled a bounty hunter. One of the other men wore a white T-shirt. If anyone can offer information that will lead to their arrest, there is a $10,000 reward being provided by the Atlanta authorities. An anonymous tipster will still be given the chance to collect the reward as well.
Anyone with information to provide is urged to pick up the phone and call 404-577-8477. CBS 46 in Atlanta is not willing to provide any information about the shooters and no other news outlets are ready to step forward. They are perfectly capable of helping out and they refuse to. You would think that the journalists who pride themselves on knowing what is going on would take the time to investigate.
Maybe these men are not even affiliated with the Black Lives Matters protesters. Perhaps they have gone rogue and they are speaking only for themselves. Since the media does not actually care about what is going on unless they can bend the narrative for ratings, we have no idea what is taking place. Most of the mainstream media seems to be out to lunch these days, in all honesty.
When people cannot figure out what is going on because the media has gone silent, that allows them to decide on whatever narratives work best for their purposes. Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms has had enough. “Enough is enough,” she said. She told Atlanta resident that they would not be able to blame this one on the police officers, no matter how hard they try.
Bottoms wants Atlanta residents to take the same passion that they have for police reform and work on fixing their own communities. Over 75 shootings have taken place in Atlanta over the past few weeks. They cannot be placed at the feet of the local police department. People need to take the time to look within and examine what is really going on. In other words, it is time to take a long look in the mirror.
The police blame game can only be played for so long before people start to get fed up. No one wants to listen to these complaints over and over again. Keisha Lance Bottoms is the one who should be blamed but there is plenty to go around. Perhaps Fulton County DA Paul Howard would like to come forward and accept the role that he has played in the violence. Governor Brian Kemp is also going to have to take his fair share. Order must be restored.
Catholic Priest Suspended for Condemning BLM Violence and Murder
Father Theodore Rothrock was suspended from the church recently and the reason will sadden anyone who considers themselves a member of the religious right. The remarks that cost him his post took place at the St. Elizabeth Seton Catholic Church in Carmel, Indiana. He spoke ill of the Black Lives Matter movement and Antifa, so he has to go.
The protesters were compared to serpents in the grass by the preacher. He has also compared them to the pandemic, in an unfavorable way. Rothrock believes that these people are actually causing more problems than they are solving. He is probably right but that is not going to stop the leftists from criticizing him for his statements.
It’s all part of the continued war on the religious right. It does not matter what they say or how they say it. When it goes against the status quo, it is not acceptable. Those who would like to find out more about what Father Theodore had to say during his controversial sermon, there is still video footage available. Get it while it’s hot because we are sure that it is going to be taken down.
Several days ago, Eric sent me what he called Father Ted’s “stemwinder” of a sermon from this past Sunday. He knew I’d love it. And I did: it condemned BLM’s violence, Marxism, destruction, and poisonous contempt for society and freedom. We need many more such fearless clergy as Father Ted, men who will denounce evil forthrightly rather than defending or even promoting it as “social justice.”
Of course, such courageous castigation infuriated the “woke” and assorted other snowflakes, commies, and misfits. “But how did people who never attend church hear about a Catholic priest’s homily?” you ask. Well, the Indy Star, part of the “USA Today Network,” decided to leaven its usual propaganda with a report on Father Ted’s truth (or perhaps this was the Star’s attempt to “tattle” on him and rouse the rabble); from there, the story went national: “A Catholic diocese,” intoned The Hill, “is facing calls to remove a local pastor after he compared the Black Lives Matter movement and its demonstrators to ‘maggots and parasites.’” (One of my favorite lines from the sermon, by the way!)
Notice the not-so-subtle indoctrination. The Hill’s writer and editors believe Father Ted should be fired; ergo, they lead with his critics’ bile.
The religious worshipers of America need more fearless clergy leaders like Father Theodore. Whether you agree with what he had to say or not, it is hard to deny his sheer passion for oration. Instead of being willing to turn his back and ignore what he believes to be evil, he is standing up to anyone who thinks differently.
Isn’t that America is supposed to be built on? While there are some who want everyone to think and feel a certain way, differing viewpoints have to be presented in order for civil discourse to take place. When people are silenced before they have a chance to speak, no one benefits. Everyone just stays in their chosen echo chambers and does not actually care about what is going on.
It’s easier to recite the viewpoints that you have heard from others than to engage with a point of view that disagrees with your own. People who have never attended church in their lives are still finding ways to hear a sermon that is sure to offend them, though. It’s funny how that works. The same people who hate to hear this kind of talk go out of their way to press play on things that will hurt their feelings.
USA Today and The Hill are just a few of the mainstream liberal media outlets that are looking to condemn a man that they do not know and would never take the time to meet. We all knew that was going to happen, though. It’s one of the easiest things to see coming. The story has since gone national, allowing all sorts of people who do not normally care about religious issues to chime in.
Word to the wise: this is not the time to turn the preacher’s words into a battleground. There is no reason to treat him poorly because we do not agree with what he says. That’s a leftist mentality that needs to be left behind if we are going to progress as a culture. In the meantime, this man should be reinstated. Even if you do not like what he has to say, it is not hurting anyone to allow him to preach. Churchgoers have the ability to walk away at any time if they do not like what they are being told.
Father Theodore is not going to hold anyone against their will, that is for sure. That’s what everyone needs to remember about what he has said. The message was meant to be delivered to his flock and no one else. We highly doubt that he wanted to go viral for all of the wrong reasons and end up suspended in the process. We presume that he will back at church once the heat dies down, though.
Harvard Senior Threatens to Murder Anyone Who Believes That All Lives Matter
A Black Lives Matter TikTok video was recently put out by a Harvard senior and it came with a controversial message. Claira Janover was not content to say that Black Lives Matter. No, she had to take things to a whole new level. “The next person who has the sheer nerve, the sheer entitled Caucasity to say all lives matter” was threatened by the student.
She claims that she is going to stab the next person who says All Lives Matter and watch them bleed out. This seems a bit excessive from where we are sitting but what do we know? Janover is putting that Harvard education to good use, though. She put a legal disclaimer at the beginning of the video, letting people know that it was a “joke”.
A critic elected to copy the video over to Twitter, to show the world what they are dealing with. The finest educational institutions in America are breeding the next generation of hysterical liberals who believe that they can shoot their mouths off all they want. Janover went on to say that she would compare her paper cut to their gaping wound and tell them that All Cuts Matter.
We would not be surprised if she was a drama student. The way that she acts out the stabbing is chilling. She gets closer and closer to the camera with each thrust. Any supporters who were willing to come to her defense got her approval, in the form of a retweet. Of course, she was also willing to oversell the threats and dissent that she received.
It was such a trying day for her but she was more than happy to share the video and reap all of the likes and comments. Once people were ready to question her on what she said, things became “trying” all of a sudden. Claire says that she will not allow these people to silence her but the reality is simple. People did not care as much as she thought they did.
That’s what happens to people who build an echo chamber for themselves on Twitter. They get all of the agreement in the world from their followers. As soon as they receive any sort of disagreement from people who are outside of their normal bubble, it turns into a big pity party and the whole world is against them.
If Claire did not want to be “overwhelmed” with “anxiety”, she probably shouldn’t have uploaded a video of herself threatening people. Even if she had just put up the usual Black Lives Matter clip, no one would have minded all that much. Instead of threatening people for no reason, she could have used her time to uplift the cause that actually mattered to her.
as anxiety-inducing and overwhelming as this day of threats, hate, misrepresentation, and attack on my character/politics by trump supporters has been I will never be silenced into shame for standing up for the #BlackLivesMatter (or any human rights injustice). next caller

Claire is about to find out more about all of the things that come with free speech. Sure, people are allowed to say whatever they want and no one can stop them from doing so. However, you need to be ready for the consequences of your statements. Someone has already decided to share the video with the Harvard Twitter account and it won’t be long before she has some questions to answer.
Social media can be a minefield when you are trying to be provocative. One minute, you are enjoying all of the attention that comes with your incendiary statements. The next minute, you are dealing with the authorities who want to know more about what you said and why you said it.
She’d better hope that she does not endanger her chance to receive her diploma with all of her fellow graduates. As a senior at Harvard, you would think that she would have considered these types of consequences before she made her video. Oh well. She can enjoy all of the views on TikTok and Twitter retweets but when Harvard comes calling about this clip, she probably won’t have much to say.

Was Tulsa the End for Trump’s MAGA Rallies?
Trump’s recent rally in Tulsa was supposed to augur a new beginning for the president. He wasn’t able to have rallies for the past few months, which was a big cause of concern. A second rally had been scheduled in Alabama for next weekend but the White House has been forced to cancel. The rally was supposed to take place on behalf of Tommy Tuberville.
He’s the Senate primary opponent of Jeff Sessions. We are sure that Sessions is currently breathing a major sigh of relief. White House spokespeople were asked when Trump would be able to return to public speaking engagements and they did not have much of an answer to offer. The question was dodged and from the looks of it, they are going to be pivoting to campaign videos instead.
If you head to the Trump website and take a closer look at the upcoming “Events” page, you will find that all of the meet ups that had been scheduled to take place during the months to come are in the process of being converted to digital hangouts. They are going to be changed into virtual seminars and we are awaiting further details on the matter.

From the looks of it, rallies are finished for the foreseeable future. If we had to take a guess as to why the rallies are done for now, we would have to point to the lackluster attendance at the Tulsa rally. Trump’s ego had to have been bruised by what took place there. The last thing that he wants is to give people the chance to make fun of him for not being able to fill up an arena.
Maybe his base is more terrified of mass gatherings than they initially let on? That could also be a reasonable explanation for their reticence to attend. Now that the news is filled with stories about all of the outbreaks that are taking place in southern states, the Trump base is probably spooked out of the idea of gathering inside of an arena. The positive rate in Alabama has doubled over the course of the past week.
Trump was probably wise to save himself the hassle of dealing with these issues. The supporters are not going to want to risk their health and the detractors cannot wait to crow about his sparse crowds. The press would have a field day and come after him for being willing to endanger everyone’s health for the sake of his own ego.
While there are no rallies scheduled at the moment, the White House aides claim that they are in the process of looking for locations to have another get together soon. They are currently considering outdoor venues and smaller locations. Trump is not the one who seems to have made the final decision, either. He can probably go along with the logic but that does not mean that he is a fan of it.
Trump was slated to travel to [Alabama] ahead of the Senate race between his former attorney general Jeff Sessions and the former Auburn University football coach Tommy Tuberville, but plans were called off as state officials voiced concerns about a mass gathering and campaign officials ultimately decided against it. A person close to the campaign said there are currently no rallies on the horizon, but aides are scoping out possible venues for when they decide to host them again…
There had once been plans to announce new rallies shortly after Tulsa, with some of Trump’s aides believing the event would validate their claims of pent-up demand. But instead the opposite occurred and the campaign began to rethink how Trump’s rallies would look going forward, including weighing smaller events or outdoor venues…
Trump had been itching to return to the campaign trail and was personally enthusiastic about the idea of traveling to Alabama days ahead of the Senate race where he’s endorsed his former attorney general’s opponent. He views the rallies as an outlet where he can connect with his supporters in a way that he can’t inside when he’s in Washington and has blamed bad poll numbers on his absence from the campaign trail.
Fortunately for Trump, he will get to scratch his itch for spending time with crowds. The Mount Rushmore 4th of July party is the hottest ticket in the country at the moment. Trump can easily pivot to events like these going forward. As long as people are outdoors and willing to wear their masks, these types of gatherings should not be a major problem. South Dakota health officials remain worried about these gatherings and only time will tell if coronavirus spikes are attributed to the rally.
The Tulsa rally has not led to a coronavirus spike at the moment, so all’s well that ends well. Perhaps the sparse attendance was a blessing in disguise, keeping people safe from themselves. Can you imagine how much worse it could have been if Trump had been able to pack the house like he claimed? The rallies also poll terribly with the general public. Perhaps this is the Trump administration’s chance to turn over a whole new leaf? The coming months will tell the tale.
Dem’s Hypocrisy: Seattle’s “Summer of Love” Mayor Likes Riots in Your Neighborhood but Not Hers
Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan has done everything in her power to minimize the negative impact of CHOP. After referring to the autonomous zone as a block party repeatedly, she has finally decided to change her tune. The communist utopia is not going to survive for much longer, if she has anything to say about it.
Of course, people want to know what took her so long. This is the sort of social experiment that was doomed to fail from the very beginning. Instead of listening to the people who predicted doom and gloom, Durkan and Governor Inslee took this as their opportunity to thumb their noses at conservative thinkers. Now that a series of shootings has taken place in CHOP, Durkan is reconsidering that mindset.
The blood is already on her hands but that does not matter to her. The citizens of Seattle are understandably furious and have decided to pursue legal action. Kshama Sawant is the city Councillor who is now leading the angry mob. Protests have been taking place at the mayor’s home. Now, Durkan is calling for an investigation into Sawant’s ties to terrorism.
When the angry mob took over City Hall a few weeks back, Sawant is the one who is said to have to have let them in. Durkan is tired of her antics and is now looking to have Sawant removed from her post. She is calling for an investigation from the Seattle City Council on the matter. Sawant now stands accused of undermining the safety of others with her actions.
“As leaders of the City, it is incumbent upon all of us to bring people together in one of the City’s most challenging times,” Durkan wrote in the letter addressed to Council President M. Lorena González. “However, I have deep concerns about the continued actions of a Councilmember that I am requesting that you and the Council exercise your duties as described below.”
In the two-page letter, Durkan pointed to Sawant’s actions earlier this month in letting hundreds of protesters fighting against police brutality and systemic racism into City Hall, which she said was closed to the public due the novel coronavirus pandemic. Durkan said Sawant’s actions put the safety of protesters and city workers at risk.
Durkan also accused Sawant of encouraging people at a rally to “illegally occupy City property, the East precinct, at a time the City has been trying to de-escalate the situation and ask individuals to depart because of violence in the area.” Protesters have been occupying the area around the East Precinct, known as CHOP, for weeks now after Seattle police earlier this month left the building and let protesters move freely throughout the area. The city has said SPD will be returning to the building, but has not given a definitive timeline. Some protesters have pledged to remain in the zone until their demands are met.
Other actions Durkan brought up included accusing Sawant of leading a march to her home even though her address was “protected under the state confidentiality program” and of using her office to promote a ballot initiative. Sawant has for the past several months been holding rallies and events around her Tax Amazon movement.
In the letter, Durkan notes the council can “punish or expel a member for disorderly or otherwise contemptuous behavior.”
“The City Council may choose to ignore and dismiss her actions, but I think that undermines public confidence in our institutions,” Durkan said.
In response, Sawant on Tuesday afternoon went after Durkan, saying her leadership has failed working people and communities of color across the city. Sawant called the mayor’s letter an “attack on the grassroots campaigns we’ve participated in and helped lead…and the progressive victories we have all won together.”
“In reality, this is an attack on working people’s movements, and everything we are fighting for, by a corporate politician desperately looking to distract from her failures of leadership and politically bankrupt administration,” Sawant said. “Our movement will respond accordingly: we will fight with even greater unity and determination.”
This is certainly rich coming from Jenny Durkan. She is the same one who was fine with turning a blind eye to what was taking place in CHOP as long as she could use their actions to advance her progressive agenda. Now that things are going very badly, she wants to act like she was against it the whole time. Did Durkan care about other people’s safety when she was allowing CHOP to barricade themselves and avoid all police presence?
Of course she didn’t. Sawant deserves scorn of her own for being willing to open City Hall for a crowd of angry rioters but that’s another story for another day. The level of hypocrisy that is on display here is ridiculous. Durkan got her first taste of the riots and now she is done with them. It’s amazing how people act once they are given a taste of their own medicine.
Durkan has now decided that she cares about bringing people together. It’s a far cry from what she was saying before. Initially, it was all about looking out for the CHOP residents and making sure that they were okay. Sawant may have put people at risk with her actions but who is Durkan to say anything about that? City Hall may have been trashed but it’s not nearly as terrible as what was happening in CHOP.
The experiment should have been over as soon as shots were fired and citizens were put in grave danger. Sawant also stands accused of leading the march to the mayor’s home but what’s the problem there? She is down with the movement and should not be nervous at all. It’s funny how people’s opinions change as soon as they are confronted with the consequences of their own actions. Durkan needs to be taking a long look in the mirror before she decides to come for Sawant again.
She’s just as bad. Meanwhile, other Seattle progressives are trying to shift the blame for the CHOP shootings from the residents, placing the onus on gun dealers who are believed to have behaved in an unscrupulous manner. That’s a pretty convenient explanation and we cannot stop laughing. Even when they are trying to own the consequences of their ridiculous actions, they still can’t keep themselves from running off at the mouth. Hopefully, the citizens of Seattle can receive justice before it is too late.
Another Teenager Murdered in Seattle’s “Summer of Love Block Festival”
Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best is finally doing what should have been done a long time ago. The CHOP needs to end and while the mayor and governor are not willing to say so, we are glad that someone is. Best is pointing out the obvious: CHOP is allowing black men to be shot and killed at an alarming rate. The cruel irony is that the zone is supposed to stand in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement.
Of course, the CHOP protesters were not happy about being called out for what took place. They wouldn’t even allow Best to finish her statement before they started trying their best to rudely interrupt. Another shooting has taken place at the Capitol Hill Occupied Protest and the police are unable to piece together all of the details at the moment. All they know is that one man is dead and a teenager who was in the car during the incident was wounded.
Best has been at odds with Mayor Jenny Durkan ever since this zone was established. She’s finally fed up with what she is seeing. Isn’t it high time that someone said “enough is enough”? These murders are beyond unfortunate. These people claim that they have set up this zone because they care about black lives but nothing could be further from the truth.
This was a very bad idea from the beginning and no one had the guts to say it. Anyone who said that the idea was not smart was considered a racist and now, the chickens have come home to roost. According to Chief Best, the zone has seen numerous horrific incidents since Mayor Durkan elected to leave them to their own devices. Assault and rape is shockingly common in the CHOP.
Shootings and robberies are taking place on a shockingly regular basis as well. Chief Best is just saying what we are all thinking. No one has a problem with protesters who are willing to speak their minds. This is their constitutional right. People cannot be allowed to take over neighborhoods in such a manner, though.
This endangers the health and safety of everyone in the area. Protesters who truly care about the greater good would recognize that. Instead, these people are still fighting for their right to control these city blocks. Best is not willing to let these people become the primary voice for the movement. Even when they tried to disrupt her speech, she was completely unflappable.
Chief Best was even asked about the whereabouts of the mayor. Durkan could not be bothered to show up to the press conference because the CHOP residents are going against her wishes. That’s why Best told the reporters who were on hand that they needed to visit her directly. Otherwise, they are never going to get a straight answer about what is going on. The protesters continued shouting throughout the conference, doing more to prove her point than anything else.
While Black Lives Matter is claiming that they are not involved in the movement in Seattle, they are going to be asked plenty of questions about what is taking place here. All of the chaos that the protesters created during the press conference is letting the rest of the world know that this is not an acceptable solution to the problems at hand. If you would like to see this conference for yourself, please be sure to check out the full video.
This is what Durkan gets for treating the protesters with kid gloves. She wanted to pretend that CHOP was just a block party but everyone knows that these types of parties are supposed to be more fun than this. Durkan even allowed them to put up barriers and they have yet to come down as of this moment. Durkan continues to kowtow to the protesters and this is a mistake that she is not going to be able to overcome.
Trump’s Getting Serious About Protecting America’s History
Donald Trump has finally had enough of the monument destruction wave that is taking over the nation’s leftists. His tweets definitely made the rounds but now it’s time to unpack them a bit. For starters, he is authorizing the federal government to make the necessary arrests when they come across the destruction.
In fact, people who have distinctive clothing and tattoos are currently being pursued for the damages that they have caused. Rioters who think that they are living in a free for all will need to think twice. These actions cannot and will not be tolerated. Trump is willing to track down the protesters retroactively and that’s not a surprising choice.
It was only a matter of time before he decided to come down on these people for their silly actions. Tearing down a statue is not a form of social justice and anyone who treats it as such is being willfully naive. The tweets have now become an executive order, so protesters are being placed on serious notice.
A new provision was added once the executive order was drafted as well. If state and local governments are found to have been lackadaisical when it comes to the protection of their monuments, they are taking a major risk when it comes to their federal funding. Federal grant money is going to be tied up if they are not willing to stand up for what is truly important.
The Justice Department is being told to prioritize the prosecution of any defendants who are found to have been responsible for monument destruction. Federal funding will be monitored closely and those who were waiting for Trump to take action are now as happy as can be. This is one president who is not going to stand for this type of destruction.
President Donald Trump on Friday ordered the Justice Department to prioritize prosecution of protesters who damage federal monuments and limit federal funding for local governments that are perceived to not be adequately protecting those monuments.
The executive order also emphasized strict sentencing, with a maximum of 10 years in prison, for those found guilty of such acts, a key plank of Trump’s law and order strategy the president has repeatedly tweeted and talked about in recent weeks.
Trump’s order comes as protests across the country against systemic racism and police brutality have resulted in the toppling of monuments to Confederate leaders, slave owners and European colonists.
The order characterizes protesters as actively seeking to undermine the integrity of the United States government — referring to them “Anarchists and left-wing extremists” — and comes a day after Trump labeled demonstrators as “terrorists” who will face “retribution.”
No one tell the liberals this but Barack Obama probably wouldn’t have either. He has felt the need to come charging into this media cycle to let everyone know that he would be doing much better with this moment than Trump did. Anyone who does not have a goldfish memory and recalls the commentary he had to offer during the Ferguson riots can definitely attest to that.
Strict sentences are being recommended to anyone who is found guilty of destroying monuments. They could face up to 10 years in prison if they are convicted. The rioters are currently undermining American integrity with their actions. The executive order refers to them as left wing anarchists and left wing extremists.
Trump has even gone so far as to label them as terrorists who are in need of retribution. While some might take issue with the description, it’s really not that far from the actual truth. If you were to ask the business owners who are trapped in these areas how they feel about what is taking place, we are willing to bet that they would agree wholeheartedly. Their livelihood has been terrorized for long enough.
No one seems to know what Trump has in mind as far as the federal funding is concerned, either. Congress controls this funding and while Trump will have some power to disperse them, it is unclear as to what he can actually do at the moment. If nothing else, he is going to rattle some cages and let the local governments know that they cannot sit idly by and allow the statues to be destroyed. We will see if his words are actually heeded.
“When the real violence started around May 25, 26, and so forth, we started using our joint terrorist task forces around the country. And there are 35 of them around the country,” Barr said.
“And now they are starting to go full bore, cranking out investigations, indictments against the people who are involved in this violence. So we’ve had scores of indictments already for such things as arson, destruction of federal property, things like that. And we have, right now, about 500 investigations underway,” he added.
Barr told Cruz and Knowles that groups of “provocateurs and agitators” appeared to be well-coordinated and often call upon anarchist groups to carry out violent criminal activity.
“They want to tear down the country. They are different than many traditional groups, and frequently, the signs of coordination and activity are very close to the event itself,” the attorney general said. “So like the morning of or the day before, and things are very fast-moving. But we definitely see signs out on the street of communication, of organization, of preplanning, prepositioning of things. So it’s definitely organized activity.”
Trump may believe that he can choke off funds through the Justice Department but those who truly believe in law and order are not going to stand for such behaviors. It would severely diminish his chances of being re-elected. Not to worry, though. Attorney General Barr says that there are over 500 investigations currently taking place. We would like to think that this would be enough to give all of the rioters serious pause but who knows?
Watch: Tucker Carlson Unleashes on Idiots in the Mob
Tucker Carlson is mad as hell and he’s not going to take it anymore. Excuse the Network reference but this guy has been quite the roll lately. One of his more recent opening monologues is still running through our minds. He’s tired of the people who think that toppling historical monuments is the same as making real progress.
Carlson claims that they do not know what they are fighting for and he went on to say that they do not know anything about American history. To be fair, the people seem to know what they are fighting against and their grasp of history is fairly strong. That does not mean that they are right for what they are doing, though.
It would be interesting to see how these people did with a random history pop quiz, we are not going to lie to you. Carlson was a bit more harsh about the situation, referring to the protesters as “idiots”. He even went so far as to call them “truly and utterly stupid”. In Carlson’s mind, they are little more than destructive vandals.
In his mind, the protesters are no longer worried about seeking justice for George Floyd. He does not think that they care about systemic racism either. He’s standing up for America and does not believe that the country is inherently racist. Carlson called the protesters the armed militia of the Democratic party.
If they are successful, Carlson thinks that they can topple the government as we know it. In the next breath, they are merely angry children. That’s our only beef with what he is saying. These folks are just venting their frustrations. We highly doubt that they are going to be able to put a stop to the rule of law overnight.
Carlson has to decide whether they are criminal masterminds or idiots. He took his critiques to the highest possible level, too. The people who are tearing monuments down are mouth breathers and according to him, there has never been a gathering of dumber people in all of American history. Once you get the chance to watch the whole thing, you will see how angry he is.
He’s no stranger to rage, either. It’s kind of his thing. To see him this angry is somewhat surprising if you are not someone who watches him on a regular basis but seasoned Carlson viewers know that this is par for the course. The Democrat leaders definitely do not fear the mob and this is the part of the diatribe that should be very worrisome to those who are paying attention.
America is tired of turning on their television sets each day and seeing an orgy of violence in their major cities. They have the right to express their opinions about the riots as they see it. While there are many pundits who are scared to tell the truth and be labeled as a racist, Tucker Carlson has no such worries. He simply speaks his mind and lets the chips fall as they may.
That’s all that can be expected of any of us, in all honesty. There is an election coming up and the saddest part of all is that these folks actually have a chance of winning. The current polls are telling everyone to expect a Biden victory. This is disconcerting for a number of reasons. What happens when Biden decides that it is time to sign a bill into law that protects all of the monument smashers from facing the consequences of their silly actions?
It’s not a question that we want to find out the answer to, that is for sure. Unfortunately, we have to wait until November to find out if America has truly had enough or if true anarchy has had the chance to take root in our country. For the sake of our future, we are hoping and praying that the answer is a resounding no.
Your Hand Sanitizer Can Kill You! FDA Warns About Some Brands
The United States Food and Drug Administration is warning consumers about hand sanitizers that have been manufactured in the nation of Mexico. There are nine different products that need to be avoided going forward. Fortunately, we are here to provide you with all of the guidance that you need in this regard.
Take a closer look at the hand sanitizer that you currently have one deck. If it is one of the brands that the FDA is warning consumers about, this is your cue to throw it away before it is too late. All-Clean, Esk Biochem, CleanCare NoGerm Advanced Hand Sanitizer 75% Alcohol, Lavar 70 Gel Hand Sanitizer, The Good Gel Antibacterial Gel Hand Sanitizer, CleanCare NoGerm Advanced Hand Sanitizer 80% Alcohol (both NDC numbers), CleanCare NoGerm Advanced Hand Sanitizer 75% Alcohol and Saniderm Advanced Hand Sanitizer are the ones that must be avoided.
Eskbiochem SA de CV is responsible for the manufacturing of these brands. So what is the issue with these sanitizers and why do they need to be avoided? There is one ingredient found in each of them that is sure to be problematic. The methanol that is contained in all of the aforementioned sanitizers can cause all sorts of issues if we are not careful.
All-Clean Hand Sanitizer (NDC: 74589-002-01)
Esk Biochem Hand Sanitizer (NDC: 74589-007-01)
CleanCare NoGerm Advanced Hand Sanitizer 75% Alcohol (NDC: 74589-008-04)
Lavar 70 Gel Hand Sanitizer (NDC: 74589-006-01)
The Good Gel Antibacterial Gel Hand Sanitizer (NDC: 74589-010-10)
CleanCare NoGerm Advanced Hand Sanitizer 80% Alcohol (NDC: 74589-005-03)
CleanCare NoGerm Advanced Hand Sanitizer 75% Alcohol (NDC: 74589-009-01)
CleanCare NoGerm Advanced Hand Sanitizer 80% Alcohol (NDC: 74589-003-01)
Saniderm Advanced Hand Sanitizer (NDC: 74589-001-01)
Some may know ethanol by its other name: wood alcohol. When this ingredient is absorbed into the skin or ingested by the user, it can be toxic. If you have been exposed to these products recently, the FDA is suggesting that you seek treatment immediately. There is no time to waste and these warnings are only becoming more urgent.
Samples of the sanitizers were tested by the FDA before they issued their verdict. There is no circumstance where methanol should be used by the average human. It should never be utilized in any hand sanitizer because of the harmful effects that are produced. By seeking out treatment, consumers can potentially reverse these effects.
FDA tested samples of Lavar Gel and CleanCare No Germ. Lavar Gel contains 81 percent (v/v) methanol and no ethyl alcohol, and CleanCare No Germ contains 28 percent (v/v) methanol. Methanol is not an acceptable ingredient for hand sanitizers and should not be used due to its toxic effects.
Consumers who have been exposed to hand sanitizer containing methanol should seek immediate treatment, which is critical for potential reversal of toxic effects of methanol poisoning. Substantial methanol exposure can result in nausea, vomiting, headache, blurred vision, permanent blindness, seizures, coma, permanent damage to the nervous system, or death. Although all persons using these products on their hands are at risk, young children who accidentally ingest these products and adolescents and adults who drink these products as an alcohol (ethanol) substitute, are most at risk for methanol poisoning.
If the consumer does not seek medical attention immediately, they are risking long term effects that cannot be overcome. Methanol is known to cause permanent damage to the nervous system. These hand sanitizers can even be fatal if used. Anyone who is experiencing headaches, blurred vision, nausea, vomiting or seizures will need to visit a medical facility right away.
Permanent blindness is another issue that can take place when consumers do not get the proper medical assistance. People of all ages are susceptible to these concerns but younger people are especially vulnerable. Adolescents and smaller children have the highest level of risk, so be sure to keep a closer eye on them.
At the moment, the FDA is not aware of any dire effects that have taken place because of the usage of these products. However, the products have not been removed from store shelves yet. The FDA has issued their request to the manufacturer but they are not moving very quickly on the matter. The recommendation was made on June 17.
On June 17, 2020, FDA contacted Eskbiochem to recommend the company remove its hand sanitizer products from the market due to the risks associated with methanol poisoning. To date, the company has not taken action to remove these potentially dangerous products from the market. Therefore, FDA recommends consumers stop using these hand sanitizers and dispose of them immediately in appropriate hazardous waste containers. Do not flush or pour these products down the drain.
If you are looking to dispose of these products at your home or business, do not pour them down the drain or into the toilet. They need to be placed in the hazardous waste containers that are designed for this type of disposal. People still need to be following the proper protocol when it comes to hand washing in the meantime. We are not out of the woods yet, not by a long shot. The CDC recommends the usage of hand sanitizers that are rich in ethanol….NOT methanol.
This seemingly minor distinction is of the utmost importance. The best hand sanitizers contain at least 60 percent ethanol. Our takeaway from all of this is a very simple one: buy American, people! This is not the sort of risk that anyone should be willing to take. Be sure to select one of the many hand sanitizer brands that are available on this side of the border. Pass this information along, so that your friends and loved ones can remain safe as well.
Another Fake News Media Hate Crime Hoax: Noose Was a Pull Rope There Since 2019
The number of hate crimes that are being reported on the news these days is a bit disconcerting. While we do not deny the existence of hateful racists in the world, there are some stories that elicit a roll of the eyes at best. It takes us back to the moment in time when Jussie Smollett was all over the news. His story never made much sense to us from the very beginning.
If you let the liberals tell it, that meant you were a racist and a homophobic monster. This week has been a bad one for those who believe everything that they hear on television, too. Supposedly, nooses were being found all over the country. First, there was a story that came out of Oakland before being debunked.
“On Monday, fifteen FBI special agents conducted numerous interviews regarding the situation at Talladega Superspeedway. After a thorough review of the facts and evidence surrounding this event, we have concluded that no federal crime was committed.
The FBI learned that garage number 4, where the noose was found, was assigned to Bubba Wallace last week. The investigation also revealed evidence, including authentic video confirmed by NASCAR, that the noose found in garage number 4 was in that garage as early as October 2019. Although the noose is now known to have been in garage number 4 in 2019, nobody could have known Mr. Wallace would be assigned to garage number 4 last week.
Now that NASCAR has banned the Confederate flag from their racetracks, the eyes of the sporting world are upon them. People want to see if there is any sort of retaliation in store for the racers who are happy about this change. Bubba Wallace is the lone black NASCAR drive and he is now claiming that he found a noose in his garage.
While this story already seems to have proven wrong, it does not seem like Wallace was trying to drum up publicity for himself. The item in question did look an awful lot like a noose and he is not trying to lie for personal gain. Any of the folks who are looking to compare this question to the aforementioned Smollett nonsense should think twice.
Apologies for not knowing who originally created this image, but it has been making the rounds on Twitter and turned out to be correct. You can see in the left photo the rope was in noose form — apparently as a handle — last year and then cut for evidence Sunday. pic.twitter.com/MIrtF3uqtN

America is fraught with tension right now. It’s easy to see how someone like Wallace could be on edge. After all, he is already grappling with the implications of participating in a sport that is commonly associated with white America. Wallace was also one of the primary parties who was responsible for having the Confederate flag removed from NASCAR events.
The sport was more than happy to soak up all of the press that they received because of the incident. NASCAR does not tend to receive the same sort of media coverage as the major four sports (NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL). Wallace immediately assumed the worst but anyone who cannot understand why he is on edge is being purposely obtuse. This was not a scheme of any kind.
Honest mistakes happen and it’s on both sides to be as understanding as possible. NASCAR’s evidence seems pretty sound, too. They have produced video that shows the “noose” in the garage in question back in October 2019. It’s merely a coincidence that Wallace happened to be assigned to this garage this week. No federal crime was committed, according to the company’s research.
NASCAR covered their backsides by taking the ‘incident’ as seriously as possible when it first took place. Yashar Ali (and others) questioned their willingness to call the act ‘heinous’ before the investigation was completed. But what happens if they are not ready to take this seriously and Wallace’s accusations were proven to be correct? They would have been made to look like foolish racists.
That’s why we understand the way that they chose to handle things. Maybe the NASCAR folks knew what was going on already and did not want to be the ones to break it to him? That would also make sense. It’s much easier to have the FBI come in and investigate the matter. Wallace is more likely to listen to their findings anyway.
Wallace had nothing to gain from making the accusation so it is probably best to let him deal with the humiliation on his own. Luckily, NASCAR was able to avoid a major fiasco by taking the time to properly look into the matter. They did not make any assumptions or jump to conclusions. They supported their driver and waited for the Feds to offer up the necessary information. That’s all any company can do at the moment.
The Democrat’s War Against Religion: “It’s Time to Tear Down Images of White Jesus”
America is in a bizarre place right now. Of course, everyone is reciting “Black Lives Matter” all of the time and that is understandable enough. That’s not far enough for the leftists of the world, though. They are already pivoting to the next insane narrative. The woke crowd is bored of the BLM movement already.
They’ve moved on and are seeking kicks by toying with the religious right. It’s a group that they love picking on. Since the current protests are not enough to make them happy anymore, they have pivoted to the tearing down of “White Jesus”. More specifically, they are looking to “Crucify White Jesus”.
The leftists are looking to smash all of the idols lately and that’s why they are looking to the biggest of them all. Why focus on George Washington when you can train your attention on Jesus Christ himself? The statues are small potatoes when compared with our Lord and Savior, that is for sure. Shaun King, the charlatan social justice warrior, is leading the way.
Someone tell Shaun King that we will care what he has to say about anything when he is willing to be honest about his own misdeeds. This is a man who finds himself in hot water on a regular basis because he is not willing to provide any background information on all of the donation monies that he solicits from the other social justice warriors who are not discerning enough to tell the truth for themselves.
Bernie Sanders already had King speak at one of his campaign launches because of course he did. The smarter Bernie fans can see through these charades, though. King may have won over the social media users who can’t tell that he is dead wrong most of the time but all of the leftists have not gone brain dead yet.
There are still some who can tell that they are being lied to. Imagine how insane things would be if Bernie had been able to win the Democratic nomination. This election cycle would be filled with all sorts of searing take downs of “White Jesus”. Sadly, we are now being deprived of the chance to see what Donald Trump would do if he were faced with this talking point during the debates.
Shaun King might think that statues of Jesus are a symbol of white supremacy because the social media told him to but some of us are a bit smarter than that. When he says that they should all come down, we are wondering what he means, exactly. Does that mean that he supports churches being torn down? Is he looking to incite even more violence?
We want to be there when the local city councils get told that their Jesus statutes and pictures are too white for public consumption. This story provides us with a great look at the issues that consume the American left. It’s one thing to want to fight systemic racism. That’s a noble cause that no one would be willing to argue about.
Unfortunately, the left continues to lose the plot. It does not take much to get them distracted. As long as one of the carnival barkers that dominates their social media landscape is able to dangle a shiny, new object on a regular basis, they will always find something ridiculous to get upset about. We just want an image of what Jesus is “supposed” to look like, so that we can try our best to avoid running afoul of the liberals.
It won’t be long before they find something else to get upset about, though. Shaun King is probably the last person that needs to worry about authentic blackness, too. Last we heard, he was using his mother’s supposed “looseness” as his evidence that he is actually black. We are sure that his mother is very proud of having her past used against her so that her son can continue stealing charity funds.
Guess What Happened After NYC Disbanded Its Anti-Crime Unit
Now that the major cities of America are all in the process of giving in to the protesters, it is time to find out more about how these experiments are panning out. New York City has been talking the talk when it comes to police reform. They are finally being forced to walk the walk. Their first step was a controversial one.
De Blasio and his officials elected to disband a plainclothes police unit that was employing over 600 New Yorkers. That makes a lot of sense. When you city is being subjected to daily riots and random arson attacks, you definitely want to start disbanding police forces. The move seemed to make the anti cop crowd happy, if nothing else.
Of course, many of us are curious to see how the move is working out for them thus far. Is it providing the results that they had hoped for or are they learning certain lessons the hard way? Those of us who still have some small amount of faith in law and order are already looking at the numbers and smirking a bit.
Crime is already shooting up, as you would have expected. The number of murders and shootings is on the rise. This is what the liberal politicians asked for. They are finally getting it and we hope that they realize the error of their ways now. It won’t take long before all of the well-meaning leftists start to recognize the necessity of a police force.
The comparisons are stark, as New York City only experienced 12 shootings during the same week last year. The number has now risen to 36 victims. It’s hard to ignore, isn’t it? The police are out of the picture, so now citizens are free to spend their time in the streets shooting each other. Innocent New York City residents are going to get caught in the crossfire, too.
Shootings are surging this week in New York City, with 27 incidents and 36 victims reported since Monday — the day the NYPD disbanded its plainclothes anti-crime unit, The Post learned on Friday.
By comparison, the same week last year there were only 12 shootings for the entire week.
“This is what the politicians wanted — no bail, nobody in Rikers, cops not arresting anyone,” one angry law enforcement source said Friday.
“All those things equal people walking around on the street with guns, shooting each other.”
That’s something that the liberals do not want to discuss. They want everyone to believe that the removal of police officers will cure many societal ills. In reality, these decisions are doing more to create new issues than most are willing to acknowledge. There are some who are pointing out the locations of the shootings and trying to couch them in some sort of context.
East New York is not exactly the safest place in the world, even when it is full of plainclothes officers who are on the case. Some folks are not convinced of the new numbers because of the percentage of them that took place in neighborhoods that are already known for their violence. Meanwhile, those who are less apt to defend the lack of policing are pointing to other factors.
The numbers are on the rise in neighborhoods that are not typically associated with violent crime. In Brooklyn, five shootings took place over the course of one night. To be fair, some of these incidents could probably be written off due to the protests. Lots of people are probably using the current hubbub as their cue to settle some scores without attracting the attention of the police.
The police that are still working are doing their best to put a stop to the torching of businesses and they are keeping demonstrations from getting too far out of control. This does not provide much consolation to those who are wondering when their streets are going to return to some semblance of normalcy. As for the Democrats, they are waiting to see how they can spin this whole thing in their favor.
This whole kerfuffle was a long time coming. de Blasio has always had an adversarial relationship with the police and this was his chance to stick it to them. We would not be surprised if the police started staging their own protests as a means of responding to the persecution. When the “blue flu” starts ripping through the remaining police force, don’t say we didn’t warn you.
Watch This Black Man Brutally Attack Unsuspecting White Man at Macy’s
This clip has received a number of views and we are flabbergasted by what we are seeing. Millions of views have been racked up on all of the major social media hubs. Twitter and Snapchat users have been sharing it incessantly. The Macy’s at Flint, Michigan’s Genesee Valley Center had just reopened and residents were happy to get some shopping done.
For one man, this shopping trip would soon turn into a brutal attack. The video depicts a younger black man beating the living you-know-what out of an unsuspecting older white man. We will take this time to add the obligatory disclaimers. Perhaps this older white man had said something to instigate the attack that we did not see.
Otherwise, an attack like this one is totally inexcusable. Unfortunately for the man in the video, the cameras captured his face perfectly. It’s going to be hard to avoid the consequences for this savage beating. The video was taken by his friend and opens with him walking up behind the white man. The white man is smacked in the head and things only get worse from there.
The incident, posted on Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube, shows an unidentified white man wearing a mask and speaking on a cell phone inside a Macy’s department store at the Genesee Valley Center mall when a black man approaches him and punches him.
The white man, who is knocked to the ground by the punch, turns and asks, “what are you doing that for?”
“I didn’t touch you… I’m sorry,” he said, as he attempts to crawl away but is instead punched two more times.
When the video was first shared on Facebook by a local rapper, the reasoning that was given was simple. The white man had been overheard on the phone using the N word. Other reports claimed that he had said the word to someone else. Meanwhile, there are others who said that the man was struck for not wearing a mask but that can’t possibly be true. Are people really under the belief that people are being jumped at random for not having their masks on?
The only people who know the truth here are the ones who were present on this fateful day. Regardless of the reasoning, it is a brutal attack and local police are currently searching for the man who is going to be held responsible. When the white man is knocked down by the first punch, he seems surprised.
“What are you doing that for?,” he says, looking incredulous. He tried to crawl away from the beating but to no avail. There are some who believe that the video might be staged. After all, the man seems remarkably calm about what is happening to him. Some believe that he is a liberal who is being attacked by the same people that he is responsible for enabling.
Maybe he realized it was in his best interests to take the beating and let it go. You simply never know how far a stranger is willing to take things. If the man who was beaten had pulled out a gun of his own and started shooting inside of the Macy’s, no one would have liked that outcome. That’s what this nation is building towards.
Soon, you won’t be able to go anywhere without having to worry about gunfire breaking out because of the constant fighting. If someone is unable to even walk through a Macy’s without worrying about being jumped, what hope is there going forward? All this is going to do is cause America as a whole to become even more violent.
It’s the sort of attack that makes viewers opine as to what they have would have done differently. Many say that they would have tried to take the man’s legs out from under him while they were on the ground. We are just waiting for the Democrats to seize on this story and act like the beating was justified somehow. We would like to see some proof of the supposed racial slurs that were being used.
If a clip of this nature surfaces, we are more than happy to admit that we were wrong. In the meantime, we hope that justice is served and that the man who was beaten receives what is coming to him. Unless he is lying about the attack, of course. After all, free speech is all well and good…as long as you are ready to handle the consequences.
Dems Say Trump Is Doing Nothing About Americas Defense…This Proves Them Wrong
Social Media gives us all a platform to express our views, show the world what we’re about to eat, argue politics, and all sorts of rhetoric no one else cares about but will pretend they do.
Now and again, a person takes the liberty of creating a post they would have been better of not constructing. Stephen Trimble, Defense Editor at Aviation Week and Space Technology, stumbled upon a post of Flickr that gained the mans utmost attention.
The post and its photo exposed a little known weapons system called Vintage Racer. Using hypersonic speed, the system was designed to seek out and destroy “targets of interest.” Though the weapon system has not been deemed as officially classified, the project has been kept under wraps. Until now.
Since Flickr in no way owns a lions share of the social media business, the post was largely ignored. But then the weapons system was introduced on Twitter where it received a much broader viewing.
At the 2019 Association of the U.S. Army convention, a photo was taken of the Secretary of the Army. Caught in the background of the photo was a PowerPoint slide detailing the capabilities of the unpublicized Vintage Racer.
The slides caption described the system as a “hypersonic weapon meant to deliver loitering munitions to a target area, where they would seek out and destroy enemy forces.”
Browsing SecArmy’s Flickr page, I find a photo from AUSA, where guys with General Atomics badges brief on “Vintage Racer – Loitering Weapon System.” I can make out bullet points with “Hypersonic Ingress,” “Survivable,” “Time Over Target,” &“Multi-Role.”https://t.co/FFg2vTryka pic.twitter.com/gi0jK3mUDH
— Steve Trimble (@TheDEWLine) June 7, 2020
As Trimble began further investigating his findings he stumbled upon the Department of Defense 2021 annual budget estimate. As justification for the expenditure the Army claimed the weapon had been successfully tested and was being transferred to the Army for further development. The eventual goal of the Vintage Racer is for it to be used as a standard operational weapon.
The only place this weapon has been mentioned is in the budget report. Online web searches will render nothing, and though not classified, this is probably how the Army wanted to keep it. Out of sight. Out of mind.
Here is what the budget report stated. “Vintage Racer matured an advanced capability to prosecute targets of interest. This project validated the aerodynamic design with wind tunnel testing. Vintage Racer also developed and integrated a guidance subsystem for targeted kinetic effects.”
Hypersonic speed is considered Mach 5 or faster. For those unaware, Mach 5 equals 3806 mph, over half the speed of light.
If and when Vintage Racer ever reaches routine operational status, the system will be helpful in obliterating important and time-sensitive targets. Now you see them. Now you don’t.
At its current rate of speed, the Vintage Racer would be impossible to blast out of the sky, but it can do more. It has the inept capability of flying lazy circles and hovering over a target until the time is right to strike.
Now that the general public is aware of what the Army and the Pentagon wish we weren’t, it gives us cause to wonder. In addition to the Vintage Racer, how many other new weapons systems are currently in development? And of these, how many are classified, and how many are not?
Besides making us wonder what’s on the drawing board, there is one specific point not as yet raised. And it’s an important point not to be overlooked.
When President Trump was still campaigning for his position, he promised the American people they would have the strongest most advanced military forces in the world, bar none. Based on what we’re seeing, his word was good.
Also under development, and scheduled to fly in 2023, Lockheed-Martin was contracted to build a long-range hypersonic missile system capable of striking far away targets in the blink of an eye. This also is not classified though a person would be hard-pressed to find information about it, anywhere.
Liberal Dems whose habit it is to speak poorly about our President, are blind to what’s happening behind the scenes. Because Trump isn’t bragging and boasting about America’s developing airpower superiority, they think he’s sitting back with his feet on his desk. How ridiculous of an assumption.
Should America come under attack and be forced to respond with a show of might and power, the Dems will finally realize how America picked the right guy for the job. Trump 2020.
Pelosi Is Trying to Declare Washington a State to Prevent GOP From Ever Winning Again
Tucker Carlson has a way of putting things perfectly and his summation of the Democratic party always stuck with us. He said that the party does not do anything unless they are able to gain more power. Speaking of which, has anyone seen what Nancy Pelosi and her Democrat pals are planning to do? They are looking to make the District of Columbia into its own state.
Why are they looking to make this distinction? It’s a question that you and I might be asking. There’s been a sizable amount of destruction taking place in the District of Columbia at the moment. Now, the Democrats want to reward the rioters by giving them the chance to become their own state. It’s the sort of thing that would sound made up if we weren’t staring directly at the proof.
Of course, the Democrats did not come up with this plan because they are so kind and thoughtful. No, no, no, sir. The true reason for the plan is a bit more nefarious than you would think. If the plan is successful, the Democrats would be able to seize some of that aforementioned power that Tucker Carlson was referring to.
House Democrats announced Tuesday evening that they will hold a vote June 26 on making the District of Columbia the 51st state.
Over 200 Democrats have signed on to the legislation amid nationwide protests that have consumed Washington, D.C. over the past few weeks, pitting the district’s Democratic Mayor, Muriel Bowser, against President Donald Trump over the best response.
The response to protests in D.C. over the killing of George Floyd have led prominent Democrats to criticize the fact that the district has no voting representation in Congress and call for its residents to be granted the same representation as Americans who reside in the 50 states, The New York Times reported late Tuesday.
The United States Senate has done a good job of avoiding the radical left. Pelosi is looking to change all of that. She wants to add two more radical leftist senators to the mix. A vote will take place on June 26. We don’t anticipate any level of success here but stranger things have happened. Maybe the Democrats will finally be able to enjoy a much-needed victory.
It’s been so long since they had one! According to reports, over 200 Democrats have signed off on the idea. The nationwide protests have served as the inspiration. Muriel Bowser is the mayor of this city and she has been doing battle with the president over the proper response. We’re going to go out on a huge limb and say that President Trump probably won’t be a huge fan of this idea.
Prominent Democrats have been using the protests as the impetus for their latest ideas but most of us are able to see through it. It’s a party that believes they are the smartest folks in the room because of their willingness to exploit tragedies. They have never met an issue that they were not ready to over simplify. We are not sure what turning this city into a state actually does for anyone.
All it does is give the Democrats the chance to consolidate even more power. Don’t let the rest of the country know that, though. The leftists think that they actually care about black lives. Nancy Pelosi and her cronies do not care about anyone but themselves. If they can seize on a moment of widespread tension to make their lives easier, they will do it before you even have a chance to question them.
They have a way of turning the most pressing issues into round table discussions that somehow end up benefiting their party. It’s honestly a talent. If the rest of the nation were as dumb as the people that they are preaching to, they would probably get away with it. Unfortunately for them, there are too many people who are tired of having the wool pulled over their eyes.
This vote is not going to go well but they are still making everyone go through the motions anyway. It’s what they do best. The rest of us are simply going to wait for the next week to go by without incident. The only question left is a simple one: how badly is this going to go?
The Democrats claim that they have hundreds of members on board but we are willing to bet those numbers will shrink once the voting becomes a matter of public record. It is easy to pledge your allegiance to a phony bill before you actually have to vote. It is much harder to toe the party line once that day comes.
Must See: Cop’s Emotional Resignation Amidst Dems War Against Law and Order
The United States is filled with anti-police protests at the moment. This is causing many officers to reconsider the roles that they have been filling. Police personnel are resigning left and right. They do not want to wait for cities to abolish their police forces, so they are getting out in front of things as best they can.
Why would anyone want to wait for their position to be eliminated entirely? This clip is an interesting one. An officer who has been working for 10 years in Tennessee has decided to step down from the force. He believes that people are taking a negative view when it comes to law enforcement. He is tired of the disrespect and is walking away while he still can.
“I just can’t take it anymore,” the officer said. Tears were streaming down his face when he made the statement. Dustin Elliott was a police officer in Winchester until now. George Floyd’s is causing numerous Americans to call for the abolishment of the police department, leaving officers in a very precarious position.
Of course, they want to be as understanding as possible but understanding only goes so far when your livelihood is being threatened. Dustin tried his best to articulate the feelings of many police officers at the moment. Police officers are being treated like they are responsible for all of the country’s ills and they are understandably tired of it.
The officers who put on their uniforms every day and do their absolute best to protect and serve the community are wondering why they are being treated so poorly. It’s a movement that has been brewing for some time now. This is not the first time that protests have spilled into the streets. The global pandemic has created a perfect storm.
With at least 40 million Americans who are out of work, it is easy to see why the protests have garnered even more traction. Police officers are now left to pick up the pieces. Elliott acknowledged that his decision was not an easy one. It’s not a choice that he made without taking the time to think about it. His notice has been put in and he is now done being a cop.
Do the communities that are inspiring good and decent police officers to quit realize what they are doing? Are they aware of the lives that they are ruining and putting in danger? If officers like Dustin are willing to go on the record as saying that they are not going to take this behavior anymore, what happens next?
The scariest part of all is that no one even seems to know. Once you take the time to speak with the people who are looking to get rid of the police, this becomes abundantly clear. If the police are abolished, we will still need some form of emergency personnel. Try calling the protesters the next time that you need a police report to hand to your insurance company and see how well that works.
If you would like to learn more about Dustin and why he feels the way that he does, be sure to check out the video. It’s not every day that we are given the chance to hear a police officer’s unvarnished thoughts like this. We are led to believe that they are not the type of people who feel these sorts of emotions. They are able to take in all of the mean things that people say to them and tune them out, in most instances.
Some are suggesting that we start to show our nation’s police officers some more appreciation. It may be too late for that, though. Imagine if people spent weeks protesting the very existence of your job. Would you care if someone sent you a thank you card after that? Probably not. One thing is for sure: videos like Dustin’s are going to become more and more commonplace.
This Can’t Be True: Deranged Seattle Mayor Installs Concrete Barriers to Protect Chop Terrorists
Mayor Jenny Durkan has proved herself to be a true Democrat every step of the way here. She’s not willing to get in the middle of this brewing calamity and she is not going to put a stop to it until something terrible has happened. In fact, she has now decided to intercede on behalf of the protesters! It’s like something out of one of the worst movies that we have ever seen.
Most have already heard about the autonomous zone in Seattle that has been established by protesters. Instead of rooting them out and putting a stop to this nonsense, Durkan authorized the installation of concrete barriers that are designed to protect them. One lane has been left open, so that emergency vehicles would be able to make their way inside if a crisis takes place.
As for the police? They are being told to stand down unless there is a life threatening crime taking place inside of the autonomous zone. The barriers have been covered with plywood, giving the protesters the chance to decorate them as they see fit. These folks are being treated with kid gloves and it won’t be long before the entire city is sick of it.
The occupied protest zone in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood known as the CHOP is getting some extra safety measures from the city.
Tuesday morning, the Seattle Department of Transportation added concrete barriers to the edges of the six-nine block protest zone surrounding the abandoned SPD East Precinct, a sign that the city could be letting the protesters stay long-term.”…
…Police Chief Carmen Best said officers will enter the zone for life-threatening incidents, but otherwise 911 callers must coordinate with police to meet outside the boundaries…
The street barricade photos are already circulating on social media, where they are getting lots of shares and likes. While most probably thought that the protesters themselves were responsible for them, they are actually a gift from the Seattle government. Meanwhile, Fox News reports that protesters are in the process of making a deal.
The addition of concrete barriers in #CHOP this morning is actually very significant for a couple reasons.
1) This is a clear sign that the city is letting protesters stay long term. They are specifically adding wood around concrete barriers for people to decorate. pic.twitter.com/KDsQFbW8Ua
— Brandi Kruse (@BrandiKruse) June 16, 2020
Reportedly, the six block zone has already been trimmed down to three. On the other hand, there is nothing to confirm this step so far. It is probably just a false hope at this point. Durkan and her cronies seem pretty committed to their pandering. They are going to let these people continue with this social experiment, until someone gets hurt.
Concrete barriers, wrapped in plywood for painting by protesters, are positioned in the #CHOP (formerly the #CHAZ) Tuesday morning, reportedly for channeling emergency vehicle access. For more details follow @seattletimes and reporter @davidlgutman https://t.co/UyflOgdeRm pic.twitter.com/1eZYr0qcl8
— Ken Lambert (@SeaTimesFotoKen) June 16, 2020
At that time, they will pretend as if they never saw it coming. Or, they may even ignore it altogether. These are the options that are in play at the moment. If 911 is contacted, they must work in coordination with any officers on the scene to meet outside of the established boundaries. Seattle’s citizens are behaving like overgrown children who won’t leave their treehouse and the mayor is all for it.
2020 has been a topsy turvy year, for sure. Up is down. Black is white. All of the things that we once took for granted have been taken away from us. Either way, the barriers are a sign that the protesters are hunkering down for a long stay. They have the support of the city government and they are not going to be backing down, regardless of what Trump may have to say about the matter.
The mob that accosted us did not represent or reflect the entire group of protesters. It’s not fair to blame that violence on everyone, just like it’s not realistic to say everyone has been peaceful. https://t.co/CR5WsgtwbB
— Brandi Kruse (@BrandiKruse) June 15, 2020
The city can claim that the barriers have been put up to keep cars from driving into the protesters. There’s definitely some truth to that claim. But why would you even worry about protecting the protesters in the first place? All they are doing is causing a major hazard and this is a plan that is sure to backfire at some point. It’s a matter of when, not if.
Even the reporters seem sympathetic to the protesters’ plight. The same rules that the rest of us have to live by do not apply in this zone. The Constitution has been suspended. The phrase “the inmates are now running the asylum” comes to mind here. Regardless of how Seattle’s experiment turns out, things are going to get messy.
The upcoming months are going to be filled with fireworks. Trump is already on the offensive and he’s not going to sit idly by. Non black photographers are not even allowed to snap pictures. All we can do now is sit back and wait for the inevitable to happen. We just hope that Durkan and her ilk are pleased.
Hypocrites: Liberals in Panic Mode After Peaceful Protests Move to Their Residential Areas
This story is too delicious to put into words. We are going to try our best to do it justice anyway. The rich and famous of the world love to act as if they care about the struggles of those who are less fortunate. The cynics among us knew that they would change their tune as soon as the protests became something that they would have to deal with.
It’s very easy to act like you’re down with the struggle when you’re watching the protests from a safe distance on television. It’s not nearly as easy to do so when the protests are happening in your own backyard. What we have here is a classic case of NIMBY-ism run amok. Not In My Backyard, they say. Take the protests elsewhere, they say.
The protesters are now invading their space and they are terrified about being hauled out of their cushy lairs. The Beverly Hills residents are now banding together to push the protests out of their hair. An ordinance was passed, which bans any public gathering of 10 people or more. If these gatherings take place between 9 PM and 8 AM, the Karen types in Beverly Hills are going to calling the police as quickly as they can.
As a preemptive measure, Rodeo Drive was shut down to traffic to help prevent the possibility of violence and looting taking place in the luxury shopping area located nearby in Beverly Hills. However, protesters were still able to make their way inside on foot. Videos shared on social media showed protesters chanting, “No Justice, No Peace,” “Eat the Rich” and “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot.”
Following the outbreak of violence, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti announced that he would be implementing a curfew on Saturday afternoon. He tweeted, “We will always protect free speech and Angelenos’ right to live without fear of violence or vandalism. To increase safety for demonstrators, law enforcement, and all citizens of Los Angeles, we are putting a curfew in place from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m.”
However, before the curfew kicked in, the rally in Beverly Hills turned violent.
Just before 7 p.m. local time, the Gucci store on Rodeo Drive was looted. High-end stores up and down the street were vandalized.
We’d be willing to bet that the same people who were posting the black boxes on their Instagram pages were also voting in favor of the ordinance. Beverly Hills has made their stance clear. They are all for the protests, as long as they are not personally inconvenienced in any way. The protest groups were disrupting their sleep, so they had to go.
These are the same folks who would claim that they were standing in support of the protesters when asked. We are also not sure what they think they are accomplishing by passing this ordinance. The protesters are, by definition, breaking the rules. If they were supposed to be in the streets night after night like this, it would not be called a protest, would it?
Looting on Rodeo Drive now too. Gucci broken into. pic.twitter.com/1qbHnkfqA3
— Perez (@ThePerezHilton) May 31, 2020
What are they going to do when the protests catch wind of this policy that is designed to keep them down? When Rodeo Drive gets vandalized, the bellyaching is going to go on for weeks. Little did they know that they were actually placing a massive target on their backs when they made this rule. The protesters probably weren’t even thinking about having a demonstration in Beverly Hills…..until now.
To preserve the peace and tranquility of residential neighborhoods, effective tonight and until further notice, no more than 10 people shall gather in an assembly in a public right of way in a residential area between the hours of 9 p.m. – 8 a.m. More: https://t.co/EVjLWqWgE5
— CityofBeverlyHills (@CityofBevHills) June 14, 2020
The ordinance is an emergency order and it remains in effect until further notice. Silent gatherings are still allowed, so it’s pretty obvious as to who they were trying to keep quiet. Private events and candlelight vigils are still considered to be okay but Beverly Hills residents should probably tread lightly. If anyone thinks that they are safe because they passed an ordinance, they are not paying attention to the news.
Rodeo Drive has already been targeted in the past and it’s not like passing a new ordinance is going to stop people from coming back. We highly doubt that they decided to consider the rule of law before they busted up the area the first time. Meanwhile, the celebrities are surely thinking up their next empty social media platitude to offer up to the people who are let down by this decision.
The Ariana Grande types out there want everyone to believe that the protests were peaceful and that they have been shut down for no reason. That’s what celebrities do. They grossly oversimplify complex issues, so that their fans can feel like they are on the right side of history with them. It makes for great entertainment but it doesn’t do much to help anyone’s cause.
hours and miles of peaceful protesting yesterday that got little to no coverage.
all throughout beverly hills and west hollywood we chanted, people beeped and cheered along.
we were passionate, we were loud, we were loving.
cover this too please. #BLACKLIVESMATTER https://t.co/vD90CEtF94 pic.twitter.com/GZ6uKDfPM7

Beverly Hills homeowners should have probably thought about all of this before they were willing to stand in solidarity with a cause that they do not even believe in. In the meantime, we are sure that they are going to find a way to pin all of the damages that are related to protests on white people. That will show ’em!
Trump’s MAGA Rally: Over 800,000 Have Registered to Attend
According to the numbers that have been compiled, the MAGA rally that is about to take place in Tulsa is the hottest ticket of all time. As of Sunday, over 800,000 people had signed up to attend. This is the first rally that Trump has been able to hold since the shutdowns put a stop to society as we know it. For Trump supporters, since this is the first rally that they have been able to attend in some time, they are ready to show up and show out for their president.
Trump originally scheduled the rally on the 19th but once he caught wind of the African-American holiday that also falls on this day, he was willing to push it back to the 20th. Juneteenth is a special occasion where African-Americans celebrate the official end of slavery in this country. To that end, Trump has done everything in his power to remain as respectful as possible.
The attendance numbers reported above come directly from campaign manager Brad Parscale. This is the biggest signup for a rally of all time, 10 times over. It is clear to see that Trump’s supporters have been missing him. This rally will probably strike a different tone, as opposed to the deadly serious COVID-19 briefings that were taking place on an everyday basis.
We had previously scheduled our #MAGA Rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, for June 19th – a big deal. Unfortunately, however, this would fall on the Juneteenth Holiday. Many of my African American friends and supporters have reached out to suggest that we consider changing the date out…

Will Trump use this rally to strike back at the protesters who have been speaking out against police brutality? Is he going to take some shots at Joe Biden? No one seems to know and he is probably not going to tip his hand between now and then. Parscale is also looking into other options that will allow the folks who have signed up to spend more time with the president.
If successful, a secondary location will be established. The arena’s capacity is in the 20,000 range. Obviously, they are not going to be able to fit 800,000 people inside. More MAGA rallies are being planned in various Republican strongholds. North Carolina, Florida and Arizona are going to be included. If this event goes off without a hitch, we are sure that Trump will be more than willing to add more to the schedule.
Traveling around the country and talking to the people is one of the president’s favorite activities. He is even allowing attendees to go without a mask, so that he has the chance to see all of their beautiful faces. The Democrats and the mainstream media are currently losing their minds. The fact that the president would have a rally during the pandemic is causing them to blow a gasket.

In the meantime, they are simply going to have to take a chill pill or two. It is easy to complain about a president who can pack the house like this when their candidate is unable to leave their basement. Biden would not be able to fill the smallest gymnasium in Delaware, let alone a full size arena. Of course, the Democrats are always going to be threatened by any candidate that can.
It’s in their best interests if everything remains the same. As long as things remain shut down, Biden is unable to leave the basement and he’s not going to be a liability to the party in this current state. He’s still having his signature gaffes on a regular basis but since there is so much going on in the news, it is hard for anyone to keep focus.
In essence, that is what the party is banking on going forward. They hope that Trump’s rallies lead to the continued spread of COVID-19, keeping Biden safely indoors. Otherwise, he could do all sorts of damage that they have been able to avoid thus far. The Democrats better hope that arenas cannot be filled because of the pandemic. That’s the only hope that they have of winning the general election November. Biden will sink their boat if he’s allowed to speak for himself.
Boston Prohibits Police From Using Public Bathrooms
There is a lot of virtue signaling going on right now. It’s getting more and more difficult to identify the most ridiculous instances but this one might take the cake. Everyone is competing to see who can hate the police more but this is a whole new level. People are now telling the officers who protect and serve their communities that they are not even allowed to use their bathrooms.
That’s a level of hatred that we never thought we would see in our lifetimes. It’s also not very practical. Let’s say that you believe all police officers are foul tempered and ready to become violent. Why would you decide to deny them a basic amenity? That makes it seem like people are actively trying to goad them into a confrontation.
All jokes aside, these are the officers who have to be wondering what they possibly did to deserve this. If Boston keeps up like this, these officers are going to have to head to the autonomous zone in Seattle. Once they have been deprived of the bathroom, they will be able to clear out that area pretty quickly.
Sorry, we promised that we were done with the jokes but this is too ridiculous to take seriously. We just hope that the cops who aren’t being allowed to use the restrooms are willing to laugh along with everyone else about it. The Boston school that made this insane rule was forced to apologize already but the damage has already been done.
This is the America that the liberals want everyone to live in. They want police officers to be scared to stop and take a leak. The Berklee Performance Center is trying their best to backtrack now. As it turns out, they were never trying to ban the officers from using their bathrooms. The facility was only pretending to go along with this ridiculous sentiment because they got lots and lots of complaints.
Berklee Performance Center issued a statement that treated the whole incident as some sort of grave national issue that needed to be addressed entirely. If a police officer uses the bathroom at a local school and no one is around to complain about it, did it even really happen? No one would have known or cared about this whole thing if they hadn’t decided to make a whole big thing out of it.
The liberals love turning molehills into mountains, though. They love doing it when they can call attention to themselves and let everyone know how progressive they are. That’s how you end up with people who think that facilities who are willing to start banning cops from using a restroom are doing the Lord’s work.
The grave tone of the letter is too much, in our humble opinions. Sometimes, you can actually give things more life by taking the time to address them and this is one of them. There was no need to make this into a whole hullabaloo. While we are trying our best not to fan the flames and get into a battle over recent rhetoric, some people really seem to want a police war.

That’s not going to serve our society or help to push things in a more positive direction. At times like these, we need to make sure to remain on an even keel. The mainstream media wants you to be as emotional as possible. They will always provide stories that are designed to make you lean in one direction or the other.

It’s on us to remain above the media spin and avoid the urge to look for stories that make us feel better about our current position. Group think has infected the American people. Until everyone is finally ready to stop letting the mainstream media yank their chains and tell them how to feel, we are only going to keep reading more and more nonsensical stories like this one.
Pittsburgh “Peaceful Protester” Caught With Backpack Full of Molotov Cocktails
Another day, another “peaceful protester” who was looking to do some serious harm. A recent protest in Pittsburgh could have turned very ugly when a rioter decided to leave behind a backpack that was chock full of Molotov cocktails. The backpack was planted in a public area and it is unclear what the objective was here. Did the man want people to help themselves?
Did he get cold feet and try to leave the bag behind? We are unsure but we are definitely monitoring the situation. Matthew Michanowicz is the man who was arrested for this stunt and he is now facing federal charges as the result of his terrible decision. He was caught on camera setting the backpack down in a crowded area.
Matthew Michanowicz, 52, faces federal charges of illegal possession of a destructive device, the U.S. District Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Pennsylvania said.
Michanowicz, who was allegedly captured on surveillance footage placing the backpack under trees at PNC Plaza, told investigators that he’d ridden his bike to the area to observe the aftermath of recent protests, court documents say.
When he was questioned by authorities, he said that he had ridden his bicycle into the area. He wanted to check out the aftermath of the Pittsburgh protests but he clearly had something else in mind entirely. Spent OC vapor grenades were also found inside of the backpack. These grenades contained a fluid that was leaking everywhere and deemed to be ignitable.
The devices are described as “spent OC vapor grenades” (identified by the PBPBS as spent devices they had previously deployed) which contained a fluid that had a smell similar to an ignitable liquid. The liquid was leaking out of one or more of the devices. All three devices had wicks attached to them, which were held in place by what appears to be “spray foam insulation.”
There were three devices inside of the backpack and all three of already had wicks attached. It is hard to argue that this man had any other intention. We hope that he is punished to the fullest extent of the law for what he has done. What if this backpack had ignited in the middle of the crowd? The damages would have been severe.
When the man was first found, he tried to deny that he had any knowledge of the explosives in the backpack. ATF agents paid a visit to his home soon after. His garage was jam packed with evidence and the agents found all sorts of disconcerting items. The fuse bundle that was located matched the fuses that were found in Matthew’s backpack. The spray foam insulation that the agents uncovered in the garage was also the same.
Michanowicz also had 10 camouflage backpacks in the garage. These bags were similar in size to the one that was recovered by authorities at the scene of the protest. Used latex gloves with a scent that was consistent with the liquid in the backpack were even found in the man’s trashcan. If he’s a criminal, he’s certainly not the most intelligent one that these officers have apprehended.
If Matthew is convicted of these crimes, he could spend up to 10 years in prison. Hope it was worth it, sir. We want to know what his plans were over the long haul. 10 backpacks were discovered, which means he may have had plans of blowing up other major protests. Why did he return to the scene where he left the backpack two days later? These are all questions that need to be answered as quickly as possible.
There is also one other major question that has to be answered here. What is the man’s actual motive? PNC Plaza is where the backpack was located. Perhaps he was looking to blow up the bank, as a means of making a statement about the futility of capitalism. Maybe he was looking to injure protesters and/or police officers. There’s so many different motivations that could have been at play here.
All we know for sure is that he was not there because he was looking to protest in a peaceful manner. Speaking of violent protesters in this city, Matthew is not the only one. Brian Bartels recently turned himself in after being accused of damaging police property and inciting a riot. Bartels’ motive as a simple one. He’s a member of the far left who was looking to do some serious damage.
These goons are putting a serious damper on the protests and forcing peaceful folks to be viewed as criminals because they are more worried about their own selfish goals. If you would like to learn more about this case, here’s the local news report on the backpack bomber.
Trump’s Planning to Start MAGA Rallies
While this rally is being billed as the first Trump rally since the coronavirus shut everything down, this is a gross misstatement of the actual reality. Trump and his cronies believe that the worst of the virus is over. That’s why they have no problem with crowding everyone into an enclosed space to sing his praises. Hand sanitizer will be made available but that’s not going to do much.
We are well past the point where we believe that the touching of a contaminated surface is the primary mode of transmission for the virus. It seems pretty clear by now that close contact in enclosed areas is far more dangerous. Trump is clearly reeling from the news that Biden has seized the lead in the national polls.
His approval rating is sinking like a stone, too. He clearly views the rally as a chance to get his name back out there and let his supporters know that he is standing strong in the face of the virus. The ongoing protests are also playing a role in this decision. According to Trump campaign officials, no precautions will need to be taken.
Attendees are not required to wear masks because the state of Oklahoma is considered to be safe. The president does not want to speak to an empty building and he wants to be able to see everyone’s faces. In his mind, the presence of masks would do serious damage to the positive message that he is trying to send to his supporters.
President Trump will return to the campaign trail on June 19 with a rally in Tulsa, Okla., for the first time since the coronavirus outbreak forced most of the country into quarantine three months ago, a campaign official said Wednesday, as polls show former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. establishing a significant national lead over Mr. Trump and the president’s approval ratings plummeting…
Trump campaign officials are unlikely to put into place any social distancing measures for rally attendees, or require them to wear masks, people familiar with the decision-making process said, adding that it would be unnecessary because the state is so far along in its reopening.
Mr. Trump has also made it clear he doesn’t want to speak in front of gatherings that look empty because of social distancing, or to look out on a sea of covered faces as he tries to project a positive message about the country returning to normal life and the economy roaring back, even as his top health advisers have warned the pandemic is far from over. “Oh my goodness,” Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, the federal government’s top infectious disease expert, said Tuesday. “Where is it going to end? We’re still at the beginning of it.”
He wants them to know that everything is going to be okay. It’s a hard message to convey when you are speaking to an empty auditorium or a room full of people whose faces cannot be seen. Dr. Anthony Fauci is also cautioning against the idea that the worst of the virus is over. He believes that we are closer to the beginning of the crisis than the end. It is hard to argue with this point of view.
“Where we go we will make sure it is safe to hold a rally and what safety precautions we put in place. We will talk about when we know exactly what kind of venue that it is that we are talking about,” Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh told Fox during an interview on Wednesday. “But I would point out to the national media that I don’t remember them doing any social distancing shaming when they were doing all the coverage of the demonstrations that were going on.”
If there is any solace that can be taken, the Oklahoma coronavirus numbers are here to provide it. 21 states are experiencing an uptick in new cases and they are not one of them. The epidemic curve is now flattened there. That makes this state a better choice than Arizona or Texas, that much we can all agree on. Either of these choices would have been a much worse look for the White House.
There is one curious aspect of this decision. Oklahoma is a state that Trump does not have to fight for. No one doubts that it will remain red this fall. Does he really miss the cheering crowds this much? From where we are sitting, it is easy to speculate about his lack of willingness to consider the health risks here. If there is a spike in Oklahoma after the rally takes place, he is going to have a lot of questions to answer.
There's no way this is a coincidence. Same month as the massacre even. Announced the same day he declares military bases will continue to be named after confederate generals. https://t.co/40xgAD4QPk
— Walter Shaub (@waltshaub) June 10, 2020
The red state crowds obviously adore the president but there’s no reason to ask them to put their own health at risk. He should be thinking about other states where the outcome is more in doubt. For example, Florida is believed to have their epidemic under control, too. Wouldn’t they be a much better choice than Oklahoma?
The June 19 date is also going to draw the ire of many leftists. This is the date that is earmarked by many African-Americans as a day of celebration. It is known as Juneteenth and it is the day that the slaves were officially emancipated. The Trump campaign is going to claim that is all a coincidence but that will be a tough sell.
Meanwhile, Democrats will be waiting for the inevitable defense of the nation’s police forces. You know its coming and they are going to seize on it as quickly as possible. We will also be watching Dr. Birx and Dr. Fauci closely. Will they let it rip when it comes time to criticize him or will they be tactful? Only time will tell.
Watch: Retired VA Governor on Tape Urging Biden to Stay Hidden in His Basement
The COVID-19 outbreak has forced many of us indoors for the foreseeable future. It’s the easiest way to make sure that we do not contract the virus. Joe Biden is definitely following that advice, as he has been campaigning from his basement over the past few months. If the Democrats have their way, this is where he is going to stay for the rest of the campaign cycle.
Terry McAuliffe is best known as the former governor of Virginia. He recently recorded a video conference with other establishment Democrats. They are all in agreement: Biden is better off staying in the basement. These officials are hoping that their senile presidential candidate can stay out of the limelight as much as possible.
In that sense, the coronavirus pandemic has been a blessing in disguise for the Democratic party. Biden has had his share of gaffes already but imagine how bad it would be if he had to go outside and speak to people on a regular basis. We all saw the clips of him faltering at his own rallies. This is not a man that can be trusted to say the right things under pressure.
Fox News obtained video of the commentary and we can’t lie to you, it’s pretty funny. The Democrats are saying all of the same things about Biden as the general public. It’s one of the rare times that their establishment actually has their finger on the pulse. It won’t mean anything once the election has come and gone but it’s still funny to note in the meantime.
Can you imagine how many more gaffes Biden would have had if he was allowed to leave the house? He still somehow managed to wade into the “you ain’t black” controversy and that interview wasn’t even meant to be that troubling. The Breakfast Club is a platform that is typically open to Democrats, allowing to say whatever foolishness pops into their heads while they are pandering to minority voters.
Some may remember Hillary Clinton’s hot sauce commentary that took place on the Breakfast Club during the last election cycle. Biden could have made similar jokes or even listed his top 5 rappers if that’s what he wanted to do. Instead, he decided to lob a grenade at his entire African-American voting base. He’s still digging out from under that mess as we speak. No wonder the Democrats want him trapped in a basement.
In their minds, all they need to do is sit back and let Trump’s campaign implode. While this is probably not the best strategy, it sure beats expecting Biden to carry the party to victory on his own. He’s not half the orator that Barack Obama was and there’s no catchy slogan to power him to the top. Biden and his cronies are banking on a major backlash to Trump. Otherwise, their goose has already been cooked.
At long last, the Democrats are willing to admit what most of us already knew. Joe Biden is more of a danger to himself than the current president. We’re not sure if there will be traditional debates this year because of the outbreak but if there are? President Trump is sure to be licking his chops. Biden offers no shortage of material that can be used against him.
We can’t get past the fact that Biden often seems confused when he is addressing the public. He loses his train of thought a lot and can’t seem to string a sentence together. While some of his supporters will blame his lifelong struggle with stuttering for these mannerisms, his cognitive decline has gotten harder and harder to ignore.
Far be for us to agree with the Democrats but here we are. They are just as embarrassed when it comes to Biden’s mistakes as anyone else. Good thing he is unable to have any rallies any time soon. He’d only be digging his grave even deeper.
Must See: Former Police Officer Responds to BLM Protesters
Brandon Tatum is an African-American who was once a member of the police force in Tucson, Arizona. This puts him at a very unique vantage point when it comes to the protests. He decided to speak his mind about the protests and it did not take long for his words to go viral. The protests and riots that have been taking place since the death of George Floyd are weighing heavily on his mind.
We cannot imagine the conflicted feelings that he is experiencing at the moment. It is commendable that he would even be able to compose himself at a time like this. “I’ve got a question for you protesters out there,” the video begins. Once we get to the heart of his concerns, it is hard to ignore them. Even the most staunch leftists would have to admit that he has a point.
He wants to know what they have accomplished with the destruction and property theft. While there is at least some small connection to the protests when it comes to these people, the real burning question was delivered to the social media activists who won’t even bother to come outside. Tatum asked what all of the folks who simply posted a black box on their Instagram page were actually doing to help the cause.
Let’s face the facts here. There is a wide range of white wannabe activists who don’t do a single thing outside of their social media feeds. They may post the right trendy activist image on their Instagram page or press send on some flowery tweets but they are not trying to do anything that will benefit the cause.
We are willing to bet that all of the people who did their Instagram posts were not ready to open their wallets for the cause. That’s the measure of true belief. Anyone can sit behind the safety of a smartphone or keyboard indoors and say things that might seem nice to someone who is also disengaged. Tatum is calling these people out and we love it.
Tatum also wants to know how these people plan on helping black people who are being mistreated by the people by destroying the neighborhoods that they live in. Multiple cities around the country are now left to pick up the pieces and move on. Are they going to receive any help from all of the people who were more than happy to take to the streets and start destroying property?
We are going to go out on a huge limb and say no. The killing of David Dorn has also drawn Tatum’s ire. It is easy to see why the slaying of a 77-year-old retired police chief would upset him. The man was simply trying to put a stop to the madness. He lost his life trying to protect a pawn shop that was in the process of being looted. Dorn did not arrive on the scene because he was asked to.
As Tatum explains, this sort of police work remains in the person’s spirit, even after they have retired. A police officer is not able to forget who they truly are just because they take the uniform off. They are going to protect the community as best they can. The video concluded with some more parting shots for the white liberals who have taken to the streets and behaved in a foolish manner under the pretense of standing up for black rights.
He does not buy into the idea of white privilege, either. Tatum wants white people who are perpetuating this idea to realize that they are not being honest with themselves. He just wants people to start operating with some common sense and stop acting like white people are destined to have a better life than a black person. If you would like to find out more about what he had to say, we urge you to check out the speech in full.
Watch This Amazing Priest Take a Stand Against Violent Rioter
Father James Altman is a Wisconsin preacher who is alarmed by what is taking place in America right now. He’s not the only one. The riots and protests have swept the nation, creating a world full of unknowns. No one can predict what is going to happen next. This creates a scary environment, which causes people to lean more on their faith.
Archbishop Wilton Gregory made the news for offering his admonishment of the president after he had taken the time to visit the Pope John Paul II memorial. Like many others, he believed that the president had very selfish motivations for visiting the shrine. The visit was made on the same day that Trump signed an executive order that pertained to religious freedoms.
To act as if his motivations were less than pure seems silly at a time like this. That’s why the Archbishop should have thought twice before seizing the media spotlight for himself. Catholics all over the country are sure to be contacting him, if they are not already. These actions need to be treated as the attention seeking sham that they are.
Father Altman was at the front of the line when it came time to rip the Archbishop’s actions. Did you know that the Archbishop remained silent when former president Barack Obama was willing to cover up the cross at Georgetown? Obama also decided to give God’s “blessing” as far as Planned Parenthood is concerned, with a nary a peep from the same Archbishop that was willing to go out on a huge limb to speak against Trump.
The sermon from Father Altman was an incredible one. We are so glad that someone is willing to say all of the things that all of the other religious folks are neglecting to mention. It gets tiring to see people hold back on their true feelings because they are worried about being offensive. It’s high time that we had religious leaders who were ready to say what is right. The video has received nearly a million views, so we are clearly not the only ones who feel this way.
He’s providing the rest of the country with some much needed intelligent commentary during these challenging times. In a world where it feels like everyone is competing to see who can be the biggest leftist, it is nice to hear someone speaking sensibly. For those of us who feel like we are trapped in a country that is slowly losing its collective mind, clips like these can provide us with some small amount of solace.
Catholics do not always receive the benefit of the doubt, either. In many instances, people are only willing to focus on the bad things that have happened in the Catholic Church. That’s fairly ironic when you stop to consider the current predicament that the nation is in. The leftists want us to ignore the actions of a few and focus on the larger message that is being delivered.
Doesn’t that sound an awful lot like the Catholic Church? Yes, the Church had some issues in the past but these problems are often overblown. If we are supposed to look past the actions of a few protesters and focus on the big picture, we can certainly do the same for the churches that are truly responsible for making this country a great one. It’s the literal least that we can all do right now.
Otherwise, we risk giving our country over to certain evils that are better being avoided. This isn’t an invitation to some sort of debate, it is merely a statement of fact. We hope that those who have turned their back on religion are willing to take a long, hard look at themselves. When you turn your back on God and you allow impure charlatans to take over your nation’s thought process, you are setting the table for all sorts of awfulness to take place.
