are ‘never going to stop … and they SHOULD not’ 8 replies
Two months ago, on June 18th, current Democrat vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris told “The Late Show” show Stephen Colbert that the then-just-emerging Black Lives Matter riots — or what she’d termed “protests” — “are not going to stop.” “They’re not going to stop. This is a movement,” she emphatically declared. “They’re not going to stop before Election Day in November, and they’re not going to stop after Election Day. Everyone should take note of that on both levels, that they’re not going to let up, and they should not, and we should not.”
enthusiasm is ‘Off The Charts!’ 29 replies
Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore offered a dire warning to Democrats after the conclusion of the Republican Convention, telling the “Resistance” that the level of voter excitement for President Trump far exceeds that for Democratic nominee Joe Biden. “Sorry to have to provide the reality check again, but when CNN polled registered voters in August in just the swing states, Biden and Trump were in a virtual tie. In Minnesota, it’s 47-47. In Michigan, where Biden had a big lead, Trump has closed the gap to 4 points,” Moore began a Facebook post on Friday. “Are you ready for a Trump victory? Are you mentally prepared to be outsmarted by Trump again?
opposition to Trump: ‘I feel truly horrible for
the things I said’ 71 replies
Blaze TV founder and conservative talk radio host Glenn Beck posted a stunningly honest apology to fans and to President Donald Trump for his opposition to a candidate he initially believed had no shot at the White House and was wrong for the country. “I am feeling so humbled this week. I feel truly horrible for the things I said and believed in 2016 about @realDonaldTrump. I believed the worst politically, which he proved me wrong at almost every turn. In the most dramatic cases (life/Israel/China/authoritarian),” Beck said to open a lengthy Twitter thread. “I expected @realDonaldTrump to take control federally at the first opportunity. Here we are in a massive crisis.
on his road to victory 4 replies
President Trump just formally accepted the nomination of his party for president. While the polls indicate that he is far behind his opponent, Trump, the businessperson turned politician, has a strategy that he believes will carry him to victory in November. He implemented this four-month strategy on July 4th. Step one was just completed. His original plan had to be modified because of the longer-term effect of the Coronavirus. The six-week shut down of the US economy from Mid-March to the end of April has caused more harm to the economy than was anticipated when his strategy was originally formulated.
FBI is hot on Antifa’s tail 19 replies
According to journalist Andy Ngo, who’s been on the ground in Portland, Oregon throughout the past three months of left-wing rioting, Thursday evening marked “the first time in 93 days” that downtown Portland didn’t succumb to rioting. In a tweet posted early Friday morning, he speculated that the silence may be a result of reports that the FBI’s Portland branch has begun actively investigating the Black Lives Matter and Antifa extremists responsible for the rioting. Look: [Tweet] “Portland, Oregon’s FBI chief said Wednesday he is shifting the agency’s resources to focus more heavily on the nightly [extremist riots] in Oregon’s largest city that often end in vandalism,

Too Far 6 replies
Democrats can try but won’t succeed at distancing themselves from the violence they have enabled on American streets. People surely know where the Democrats have stood on this, and that they’re now backpedaling only because of polling data. Former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg outright blamed this anarchy on President Donald Trump. “The simple reality is that we are seeing more and more chaos and violence under the Trump presidency, and there’s no reason to expect that it would get any different or better if he were reelected,” said Buttigieg. “This is very much characteristic of living in Donald Trump’s America,
sports again 9 replies
You know the old joke. I went to the fights, and a hockey game broke out. Today it’s more like I was watching a left-wing political rally, and an NBA game broke out. It is impossible to watch a sporting event these days without being lectured by the players, owners, leagues, and networks. What American sports needs is a good dose of Ricky Gervais, like when he roasted Hollywood during the Golden Globes for its nonstop politicking. I’m no Ricky Gervais, and this is more of a rant than humor but here it goes.
shows America what it is in for if Biden wins 10 replies
If the point of a political convention is to get your party’s message out, win over voters and boost your candidate’s prospects, then make no mistake about the 2020 conventions, Republicans absolutely buried Democrats. The polling tells us so. Joe Biden got zero boost from the Democrats’ grievance-fueled slog-fest last week. The Democratic presidential nominee’s polls did not move higher; in fact, they dropped, and especially in the critical swing states. Though it is too soon to determine how the GOP convention shifted President Trump’s standing, we do know that over the past week, his approval ratings have moved higher in those battleground states, and especially on his handling of COVID-19.
Down Syndrome Son. He Ended Up Speaking
at the White House 9 replies
A woman from Mansfield, Ohio, may have given the most powerful speech at the Republican National Convention (RNC) on Wednesday. She wasn’t a congresswoman, a governor, or a second lady. She was a mother — a mother who decided to give her disabled son life, a good education, and an opportunity to speak at the White House. Tera Myers spoke about school choice, but her story began before her son was even born. “Before Samuel was even born I was told his life wouldn’t be worth living,” Myers said. “When early tests revealed he had Down Syndrome, our doctor encouraged me to terminate the pregnancy.
Blacks and Democrats 28 replies
A new Zogby poll on presidential approval gives Donald Trump the highest marks of his presidency and surprisingly solid numbers with blacks and Democrats. Very few polls have been released since the Democratic National Convention. Those that have been made public show Trump making a strong rebound in several battleground states and now, an uptick in his approval ratings. Perhaps the most important factor in the approval numbers is Trump’s surprising strength with black voters and Democrats. The Washington Examiner: The latest Zogby Analytics poll just shared with Secrets had Trump’s approval at 52%. “The president has recorded his best job approval rating on record,” said pollster Jonathan Zogby.
to Discriminate Against Certain Customers,
Levies Huge Fine 8 replies
The only pharmacy in a sparsely populated Oregon county has come under scrutiny by the state’s Occupational Safety and Health Agency (OSHA) for failing to enforce mask regulations on customers. The owners are now speaking out, saying that the State of Oregon is requiring them to discriminate against the large number of customers they serve who also have disabilities. In addition, OSHA has slapped them with $10,000 in fines. Pharmacist Caleb Howard and his brother represent the fourth generation in his family to operate Howard Drugs in Lakeview, the only pharmacy in Lake County in southern Oregon. In an interview with PJ Media,
