BORDER: The media makes a big deal about any deaths among illegal border crossers, fueling the righteous indignation of all those who want to defund the border patrol.

The media ignore the rest of the story.

The Honduran boy in the photo is just one of 4,900 people last year who were rescued by Customs and Border Protection agents and officers.

That’s more than 13 people saved PER DAY.

2020_06 29 God breaks hearts

2020: Brandon Straka, the founder of WalkAway, says that the riots and the Democrats’ insane response to them is driving people into Trump’s camp by the tens of thousands. And I do mean tens of thousands.

In the past few weeks, the WalkAway Facebook group has had more than 30,000 new member requests! With so much new traffic, they’re going to have to bring on more moderators.

WaPo Fact Checks Trump

2020_06 29 BLM rioters

Last Wednesday, Trump said, “You hear about certain places like Chicago and you hear about what’s going on in Detroit and other — other cities, all Democrat run. Every one of them is Democrat run. Twenty out of twenty. The 20 worst, the 20 most dangerous are Democrat run.”

In response, The Washington Post declared, Trump keeps claiming that the most dangerous cities in America are all run by Democrats. They aren’t.Then they used FBI data to “prove” that Trump is a Big Fat Liar.

WaPo then used FBI statistics to inform us that only 17 of the mayors of the top 20 cities with the highest numbers of violent crimes are Democrats. Two of the mayors are Independents and one is even a stinkin’ Republican.

Even more comically, the WaPo then used FBI statistics to inform us that only 19 of the mayors of the top 20 cities with the highest numbers of violent crimes per 10,000 residents are Democrats. One is an Independent.

Wow.

I guess WaPo really showed us what a Big Fat Liar the Bad Orange Man is!

I better run right out and get me a Biden t-shirt!

I wonder what they did with all of the 120 million dead bodies from the COVID....

THE STAR SPANGLED BANNER: [:36] – A violent mob destroyed the statue of Francis Scott Key in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park, because he was a racist. He was also a good friend of another racist, Democrat President Andrew Jackson, who hated abolitionists and shoved Native Americans off their land.

So yeah, not a great guy by today’s standards. But honestly, I couldn’t care.

Plus, the suggestions for substitutions include the idiotic John Lennon song, “Imagine,” which expresses longing for no borders, no religion, and no Heaven.

Hey, as a description of New Earth, it works fine. As a national anthem for a nation here on today’s Earth, it’s moronic. Dangerous even.

My one and only objection to our National Anthem is that it is so difficult for most people to sing. Even professional musicians struggle with it.

I wouldn’t mind “God Bless America” at all. But “Imagine”? NO freakin’ way.

CLICK [1:44] to hear an adorable CHILD absolutely crush her performance!

CLICK [1:47] to hear an impromptu duet. This is so beautiful, I needed a tissue!

Jena’s WalkAway Story

The following is reproduced here from the private Facebook group “OFFICIALWalkAwayCampaign” with permission from the author, Jena Jordan.

She says the photos are “me in 2016 before the Bernie rally, and me this year when my scrubs arrived, you guys, I was SO excited!!!”

2020_06 28 Jena

I walked away in 2016 after the way the Dems handled the primary, how my fellow Dem base was behaving (talking about how “Love Trumps Hate”, but then being extremely hateful and racist), and how the FBI handled Hillary’s “matter.” I was disgusted.

I used to watch The Young Turks and phone bank for Bernie Sanders, went to his rally and shook his hand. I used to say things like, “If you support gun ownership then every time there is a shooting you have the blood of children on your hands!” (To my dear sweet sister I would say this!! I was the worst!)

My “red-pill” came from a combo of being completely disgusted and disheartened, and Stephen Crowder coming on YouTube on a play-through after an episode of TYT one day. Almost as an act of rebellion, I kept it on. (TYT was really starting to piss me off).

As I listened though I found that I couldn’t disagree with his points and even LIKED him!! I would continue to watch his shows during the day, looking around my own living room in some kind of weird shame paranoia as the names I had been conditioned to think about Republicans played in my mind … but they didn’t fit.

I kept it a secret almost like I was experimenting with a new drug or something. Then in an act of final desperation, I decided to watch a Trump rally in its entirety. I watched the entire thing from beginning to end, waiting for him to say something so unhinged, so hateful, so racist, so “literal Hitler” that I would be able to vote for Hillary Clinton with enthusiasm. I NEEDED to hate him more than I hated her.

I watched and waited and waited … and waited … maybe it was an off night. Maybe I caught an uncharacteristic rally. Because his points were fair. Maybe I didn’t immediately agree with every single word, but I agreed with more than I disagreed and the stuff I disagreed with wasn’t make-or-break.

So, the next day I watched the news expecting something like, “Well, Donald Trump’s rally yesterday was surprisingly civil and uncharacteristically even.” But NO!! They took like one line he said COMPLETELY out of context (and I actually knew this because I watched the whole thing) and you guys … no joke they reported it like the sky was falling… for THREE days!!

This was when “I think I’m going to actually vote for this guy” popped in my head for the first time. About a week later I tested the waters of “coming out” to my husband by hinting that maaaaaybe Trump isn’t a total monster and he agreed and then added something else positive, then I added something else and then we were both “out” to each other.

In all the weeks that I was watching Crowder, Shapiro, and others, he was on the_donald on reddit “crossing enemy lines” drive by the same kind of frustration and curiosity. We began to share the videos and memes that we individually discovered and enjoyed really awesome conversations about points made and our evolving mindsets. The weirdest thing is how much becoming conservatives helped our marriage!!! How much happier we became as individuals and then as a couple.

There were other positive things that began to happen. I had a rough childhood; it was like living in a horror movie for many years. I wound up dropping out of high school and moving out when I was 17. I think it was easy to become a part of a culture that glorified victimization.

But when I became a conservative, it was like I was liberated from that mindset. I started holding myself accountable for my life. I started taking classes at our community college. Instead of using my two kids, (both autistic) or my age (29) or my status as a high school drop out as an excuse why I would never amount to anything, I let those things drive me harder.

This fall I will begin nursing school at a major university in Texas!! I also went from seeing Christians as enemies to seeing them as allies. I was fiercely protective of finding faith myself! It’s been a good transition, good for my entire family. It’s not just politics it’s values!! And it matters!!!

P.S., I have to say that when I told my sister she was right about EVERYTHING we ever fought about and I was wrong about everything I did, it with sincere joy in my heart. And every opportunity that I could do it with people I fought with online and other family members, I did it eagerly, even excitedly. I have never enjoyed admitting that I was wrong, but this was joy!

[CtH: I did a small amount of editing, without changing any of the meaning and only to make it easier to read.]

NOT PEACEFUL: [1:04] – Trump’s political opponents and Slime Media talking heads have repeatedly characterized the ongoing anti-police protests near the White House as “peaceful.”

More than 60 U.S. Park Police officers have been injured by protesters who have assaulted them and thrown bricks and bottles at them.

Some of the injured have needed surgery.

TRUMP: Dumbocrats may have shot themselves in the foot with all the hype they gave the Tulsa rally ahead of time.

Protesters, media, and slimey Dem non-ticketers produced a bunch of empty seats … but about 13 million people have watched his speech on TV or online (so far).

TRUMP: After protesters outside of the White House defaced and tried to tear down a statue of Andrew Jackson in Lafayette Square park, President Trump said he plans to issue an executive order authorizing federal authorities to arrest anybody who vandalizes or destroys any federal monument or statue in the U.S.

I’d love to have a poll of the idiots who decided Jackson needed to go.

Question: “What political party did President Andrew Jackson belong to?”

Hint: New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who called the destruction of statues by mobs “a healthy expression of anger”, belongs to the same party.

TRUMP: [3:18] – The media made a thing about how slowly and awkwardly he got off the stage after the West Point commencement ceremony. He explains the situation here. It’s pretty funny.

Also, CLICK [2:19] to see Trump coming into the Tulsa rally. I love this song … and I need a tissue.
