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.

TRUMP: [1:41:55] – Trump’s complete Tulsa rally speech.

PARTICIPATION TROPHIES: I thought I was raising my kids with good values, so was appalled when I heard my high school aged daughter excusing her alcoholic friend driving drunk with that ridiculous mantra, “Just because someone does bad things does not mean he’s a bad person.

I told her, “That’s fine for very small children, but after age 7 or so, what you do both expresses and helps to shape who you are.

TURNING THE TABLES: Andrea Widburg says we need to turn the tables on the Left and use the Left’s Alinsky tactics against them.

In the article linked below, she celebrates an Hispanic vendor outside the Trump rally who pulled off Alinsky’s Rules Four, Five, and Six in the space of two minutes.

YOUTUBE: Our hate speech policy prohibits videos which assert that someone’s sexuality or gender identity is a disease or a mental illness.”

Remember when they said President Trump had no business talking about COVID-19 and hydroxychloroquine because he isn’t a doctor.

I’m pretty sure YouTube’s policy wonks aren’t psychiatrists.

POPULAR MECHANICS: Pandering to the Left – “Should you happen to find yourself near a statue that you decide you no longer like, we asked scientists for the best, safest ways to bring it to the ground without anyone getting hurt—except, of course, for the inanimate racist who’s been dead for a century anyway.

STATUES: Shaun King thinks that ALL of our beloved and historic statues, murals and stained glass windows that depict Jesus or Mary or “their white friends” need to be destroyed.

They are a form of white supremacy. Always have been. In the Bible, when the family of Jesus wanted to hide, and blend in, guess where they went? EGYPT!

Every culture has painted and sculpted Jesus to reflect its own race, ethnicity, culture, dress and mythology. They are ALL an important part of Christian culture.

Having Shaun “Talcum X” King, the white guy in blackface, lecture me about what parts of my own culture I’m allowed to keep is a bridge way, way too far.

Plus it further exposes the diabolical reality behind our opposition.

  • H/t Mindful Webworker for best bits of the last 2 graphs. Also, he noted, “in Oklahoma, the earth itself applauded for Trump!” with an earthquake after the rally!

GEORGIA: Atlanta’s Democrat Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms has been riding around town in two chauffeured luxury GMC Denalis that were purchased with $175,000 from funds designated by the city council for police vehicles.

ILLINOIS: In Chicago, 102 people were shot over the Father’s Day weekend. Eighteen died, including five children.

Thus far, Black Lives Matters hasn’t expressed any interest in protesting the death of little Mekhi.

KENTUCKY: NPR used a deceptively edited video to claim that “right-wing extremists” are targeting protesters with their cars.

That’s an odd take, given that two of the antagonistic protesters are facing charges, while the driver is not.

CLICK [:32] to see what happened BEFORE the driver hit a protester with her car.

“Protesters” blocked the woman’s car, screamed at her with a megaphone, ripped out her hair, then pulled a gun on her.

She was so terrified, she gunned it and one of the a**holes was in the way.

Karma’s a bitch.

2020_06 23 Brett Favre shut up

NFL: Brett Favre said that Colin Kaepernick should be considered a hero like Pat Tillman. Brett Favre taken too many hits to the head.

Colin Kapernick played six seasons for the San Francisco 49ers before losing his starting position to a better player. After the other NFL teams showed no interest in him, he became a professional activist.

Following the September 11th terror attacks, Pat Tillman turned down a multi-million dollar, professional football contract to become an Army Ranger. He served several tours in combat before he was killed in the mountains of Afghanistan. He was awarded a Silver Star and a Purple Heart.

In other, less ridiculous NFL news, retired NFL footballer Herschel Walker tweeted, “I have an idea… For all these people who don’t want any police, I’d love to meet with American Airlines, Delta, and Southwest and make a deal to fly them to countries that don’t have police. I want them to be happy!

DAMANI FELDER: I’m loving the truly brave black voices speaking out against Black Lives Matter. These are all worth watching.

CLICK [2:19] for his chastisement of white, virtue-signaling liberals who do nothing to help.

CLICK [1:50] explains what rights protesters do not have.

CLICK [:59] for his funnier side.

CHINA: [2:04] – Some suggest the weird behavior by fish in different areas of China may be a prelude to a major earthquake.
