Media That Registered Voters in Many States
Are Also Dead 9 replies
During a White House briefing Thursday afternoon, Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany explained to reporters, with slides, detailed data and news stories, that voter fraud as a result of mass vote-by-mail schemes is in fact a real problem. “The media is very concerned about the integrity of our elections but when it comes to mail-in ballots, all of a sudden, the concern for election security melts away,” McEnany said. “I want to note there was a Pew study done that shows there is plenty of reason to believe that in a mass mail-in system that there is fraud.

Chaos erupted in Minneapolis Wednesday night, with people looting and rioting following the death of George Floyd, a black man who was killed by a white police officer. Two men decided to utilize their Second Amendment rights to prevent people from looting nearby stores. “Basically, you’ve seen the records the cops keep and the cops are a lot less likely to tread on people’s rights when there’s other armed Americans with them. So we figured it’s about damn time – or at least I figure it’s about damn time – for some heavily armed rednecks stood with fellow citizens,” the one man explained.

Organizers said Thursday that they instead will have a “virtual event” in which participants who verify that they ran 26.2 miles on their own will receive their finisher’s medal. The race had originally been scheduled for April 20 before being postponed for five months because of the coronavirus pandemic. “While we cannot bring the world to Boston in September, we plan to bring Boston to the world for a historic 124th Boston Marathon,” said Tom Grilk, the CEO of the Boston Athletic Association. Although the title of Boston Marathon champion is contested by a few dozen elite athletes, the field includes more than 30,000 recreational and charity runners,
Teaching Children Sexual ‘Pleasure’ Is a
Primary Goal 10 replies
May is being touted as #SexEdForAll month on social media platforms, and a look at many posts using the hashtag shows teaching children about sexual “pleasure” is now included in the language of “medically accurate” sex ed. [Tweet] Cathy Ruse, senior fellow and director of human dignity at Family Research Council, wrote, “The ‘facts of life’ have not changed, but ‘inclusivity’ and ‘sex positivity’ and other popular buzz-word concepts have changed sex education.” Ruse is the author of a new brochure titled, “Sex Education in Public Schools: Sexualization of Children and LGBT Indoctrination.” She observed that while many studies have demonstrated comprehensive sex education
Attack on Wife 9 replies
Florida’s Bay County Sheriff’s Office (BSCO) indicates a husband in his 70s intervened to stop an attack on his wife Tuesday by shooting and killing an intrusion suspect. Fox New reported that the incident occurred in Panama City just after 6 a.m. The BCSO used a Facebook post to explain that the husband was outside when the man allegedly approached the home. The man, 31-year-old Nathan Jerrell Edwards, “was screaming and swearing, and, according to witnesses, acting very aggressively and erratically.” BCSO noted that Edwards “walked down the husband’s driveway and approached the husband in a threatening manner.” The husband went inside to avoid Edwards, but Edwards allegedly followed
Coronavirus Victory with Beer 9 replies
103-year-old Jennie Stejna defied the odds to beat the novel coronavirus on May 13 and treated herself to a victory bottle of Bud Light in celebration. “Hell yes,” Stejna told her grandson-in-law, Adam Gunn, when asked whether she was ready to go to Heaven. A brutal fight against the novel coronavirus looked grim, and her family was forced to say their goodbyes over the phone. And while Stejna did not specify when she wanted to go, the following days made it clear: Not yet. Stejna is a “hardcore Boston sports fan,” who “used to sit outside and listen to the Red Sox on the radio,” her family remembered.

nursing home fiasco of his own making —
and has got some doozies 7 replies
Gov. Andrew Cuomo, that New York Democrat so vaunted in the media he was once touted as a replacement candidate for wretched Joe Biden, is on the hot seat these days for his wretched performance in the coronavirus crisis. He’s become reviled for his outrageous decision to force New York’s nursing homes to accept COVID-19 patients by executive order, killing off 5,000 of the state’s most vulnerable people. He should be crawling under a rock in shame, now that word’s gotten out. Instead, he’s blaming everyone but himself. The latest? The nursing homes which were forced to obey his orders to accept “medically stable” COVID-19 patients,
Lawn signs sprouting in my suburban neighborhood state: “Graduating Class of 2020 — #AllInThisTogether.” Our seniors chose that message, no doubt, because it’s in use everywhere. But one more pronouncement of our so-called “togetherness” may make me scream. Across the country, some are more “in this” than others. It’s all a matter of being essential. Or not. Or caught at a particularly good (or not so good) stage of your life or career. How do you prepare for the unexpected? My dentist is non-essential. It’s impossible to offer virtual dental services. Too bad for those who have gone without dental care
McEnany Fact Checks Twitter Over Mail-In
Ballot Fraud Claims 6 replies
My RedState colleague Nick Arama wrote earlier today about how Twitter is now “fact checking” President Trump’s tweets, starting with two he posted on Tuesday about how mail-in ballot voting is ripe for fraud, and has the potential of “rigging” the 2020 presidential election. As Nick noted, a number of high-profile conservatives fact checked Twitter in response, debunking their erroneous claim that Trump’s statements about voting by mail were “unsubstantiated.” White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany was another who pushed back hard against Twitter’s dismissal of Trump’s remarks on mail-in ballots, posting a series of tweets on the issue.
Unloads on Pritzker’s Stay-at-Home Order 6 replies
Lost in the shuffle of the Memorial Day holiday weekend — unusual, though it was — an Illinois judge unloaded on Governor J.B. Pritzker’s still-in-effect stay-at-home order this past Friday. I’ve written previously regarding the significant distinction between Chicago — and even Springfield — and “outstate” or “downstate” Illinois. This judge’s decision further highlights that great divide. The back story: State Rep. Darren Bailey, a Republican from the state’s 109th District, filed a lawsuit against Pritzker in April, asserting that Pritzker’s stay-at-home order unfairly affected the residents of his home county. Clay County Judge Michael McHaney issued a temporary restraining order in that matter, but only as to Bailey himself,
mail-in ballot fraud 10 replies
Just as the left attempts to sell us on the idea of solid mail-in voting for all future elections in the wake of the coronavirus, out comes the first arrest for mail-in ballot fraud. According to the Washington Times’ Stephen Dinan: Federal prosecutors on Tuesday lodged mail-fraud charges against a postal worker they say altered absentee ballot requests in last month’s primary election. Thomas Cooper, 47, admitted to changing information on the requests for ballots — including five where he switched the party primary from Democrat to Republican, according to investigators. He told them it was a joke. The charges were announced the same day that President Trump renewed his attack on mail-in voting,
