HAIL MARY, FULL OF GRACE: The lyrics are the Hail Mary prayer in Latin [2:30] – Opera singer Christopher Macchio offered a beautiful rendition of the song, cherished by Catholics, from the Blue Room balcony of the White House after President Donald Trump’s speech officially accepting his party’s nomination to run for reelection.

After the sung prayer to Our Lady, Macchio invited the Trump family and guests gathered on the south lawn of the White House to join in singing “God Bless America” and “America the Beautiful.”

Dr. Taylor Marshall, Catholic author and a member of Catholics for Trump advisory board, tweeted, “God will honor those who honor Him (and those who honor the Mother of God the Son).”

WASHINGTON: Kenosha riots – RiotKitchen206 tweeted, Riot Kitchen HQ just learned that our bus crew was arrested in broad daylight in #Kenosha today – kidnapped by feds in unmarked vans. We are currently trying to find our friends who were just there to feed people. Please share and donate for bail via Venmo riotkitchen206.”

According to the Kenosha News, the detainment occurred around 7:30 p.m., well after the city’s 7 p.m. curfew.

The Kenosha Police Department’s media release said that Kenosha police officers were responding to a citizen tip when they located and took up surveillance on three suspicious looking vehicles with out-of-state plates.

When they saw occupants filling multiple fuel cans with gasoline, the LEOs exited their vehicles. They were wearing appropriate identification and verbally identified themselves, before detaining the occupants of two of the vehicles.

When the third attempted to drive away, police stopped it, forced entry and found helmets, gas masks, protective vests, illegal fireworks, and suspected controlled substances. These individuals were also arrested.

Riot Kitchen responded, “Protective equipment we have on the bus is just that – for protection while being in large crowds with masks for COVID protection.”

Not sure how helmets, protective vests, illegal fireworks, gas masks, and controlled substances (which were found in the three vehicles) are supposed to protected people from COVID.

Everybody gets frustrated sometimes with their relatives!

I don’t know what guys do. Go to bars and bitch to strangers maybe.

Women go to their BFFs to blow off steam. The point of it is to get our feelings validated, so we can get our love back on and keep on keeping on.

Girlfriends are supposed to listen, pour the wine, and afterwards, keep their big, fat mouths SHUT forever and ever about whatever was said.

Alice Johnson

 

As Johnson addressed the Republican National Convention Thursday night, Politico tweeted, “Alice Johnson, a key player in Trump’s criminal justice reform push, delivered her RNC address tonight. She’s been propped up as one of the most prominent beneficiaries of the terms of the First Step Act. Kim Kardashian played a role in her prison release.”

Trump 2020 Advisory Board member Nan Hayworth responded, “@Politico’s bitter and desperate partisanship on full display today. Alice Johnson is no one’s prop. How dare you disrespect this amazing and powerful woman. You reveal yourselves in your derision. How petty, small, and pathetic you are.

Hayworth was far from alone. Others tweeted the “propped up” accusation was “disgustingly racist.

Tell us how you really feel about Black women, why don’t ya!

This headline removes agency from Alice in a way that is extremely uncomfortable and bizarre.

Johnson herself said, “To address Politico, to think that I can’t think for myself is a huge insult to me. … No one can prop me up to do anything I don’t want to do. The people who are saying this don’t even know President Trump. I don’t believe President Trump is a racist. My interactions with him and the things that he said and the things that I know touches his heart, those things would not come from a racist man. They are free to have their opinions, but in my personal opinion, I do not believe he’s a racist.”

I’ll spare all y’all what Joy Behar said.

Comfortably Smug tweeted, “Earlier tonight, Alice Johnson, who President Trump just pardoned was speaking to a room full of people on Clubhouse, an app you may have heard of.

While she was speaking, she described the events of Thursday night after leaving the White House, where a mob had descended She described being attacked, spit on, and having to take her heels off to defend herself from the out of control mob.

The mob descended on Alice and she was in tears and afraid as they attacked her the same way they attacked Rand Paul In the clubhouse room listening to Alice were Gayle King, MC Hammer, Van Jones and others What was their reaction? They told Alice to never repeat the story.

Don’t be surprised for more info to come out and more people to corroborate I’m told there were about 350 people in the clubhouse room.”

Ironic tweet reply by one of Comfortably Smug’s followers: “But, I’ve been reliably informed that silence is, in fact, violence.”

Some people on Comfortably Smug’s feed said there wasn’t any video of the mob assaulting Johnson, therefore it didn’t happen. Ooookay. Maybe. Or maybe this group was so much more incensed by Johnson or frightened by the mob that they didn’t immediately do the 21st century thing – i.e., record it on their phones. I mean, trees do fall in the woods.

We have seen video of the rage mobs attacking Rand Paul and Dan and Paula Bongino. And I personally can easily believe that Alice Johnson would be a particular target, given the power and content of her speech.

And it’s not like we haven’t all seen the Left’s viciousness and violence in full color this summer. Nor have we missed the blatant encouragement Democrat leaders have voiced, nor the blatant lies about the “mostly peaceful protesters” spewed by the Slime Stream Media.

They preach to us about civility and tolerance, then say crap like this:

You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about.” – Hillary Clinton

Michelle always says, ‘When they go low, we go high.’ No. No. When they go low, we kick them.” – Eric Holder, former Attorney General for President Obama

We take an oath to protect and defend the Constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic. And, sadly, the domestic enemies to our voting system and our honoring our Constitution are right at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, with their allies in the Congress of the United States.” – Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA-12)

If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere… The people are going to turn on them. They’re going to protest. They’re going to absolutely harass them until they decide that they’re going to tell the President, ‘No, I can’t hang with you.’” – Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA-43)

We have to level them because if there are survivors — if there are people who weather this storm, they will do it again — will take this as confirmation that, ‘Hey, it just pays to ride the wave — look at me, I’ve made it through.’” – Jennifer Rubin, Never Trumper, MSNBC

JUDGMENT: This morning, before I got out of bed, I read a section in Heaven by Randy Alcott about how dangerously wrong this “everybody goes to heaven” thing is and how horrific are the consequences to those who believe it.

Then, I saw this from Babylon Bee. The end of it has this: “Seriously, only racists go to hell.

But we’re all white which means we’re all automatically racist.”

I want to offer up the most profound prayer of thanksgiving that GOD is writing history, not Democrats.

GOP CONVENTION: President Trump’s Acceptance Speech [1:10:22] – “Republicans spent the better part of three nights in their convention presenting softer and gentler sides of President Trump, but the president gets the final words and he came out Thursday in a fighting mood.” – NY Post

DEMOCRATS BE LIKE: As President Trump gave his acceptance speech for the Republican renomination for president Thursday night on the South Lawn of the White House, protesters gathered on the north side of the White House on Black Lives Matter Plaza put an effigy of Trump in a guillotine for a mock execution.

Agitators also chased out a cameraman from the area near the White House. They threatened to beat him up and destroy his camera.

RACISM: According to Democrats: Blacks vote Democrat, Blacks support Democratic candidates, Blacks believe the Constitution is racist, Blacks think police hate minorities, Blacks know Whites are born into privilege and Blacks never receive a fair shake in America, not in education, not in economic opportunities and certainly not in the court system. And here’s the stifling part — anyone who argues differently, sees differently, dares ponder differently is either Not Black or BISCO — that is, Black In Skin Color Only.

FOUR MORE YEARS: In March 2016, Professor Helmut Norpoth of Stony Brook University in New York confidently predicted that Donald Trump would be elected president.

He is now, just as confidently, giving Trump a 91% chance of winning the election with an unambiguous 362-176 Electoral College margin.

The article explains his methodology.

2020_08 29 usps

USPS: OvertimeAs Democrats demand a huge bailout for the postal service, a new internal audit has revealed one big piece of unnecessary fat contributing to the USPS’ inability to balance its own books.

Postal employees are allowed to determine their own overtime hours without needing prior management approval and management does not always keep accurate payroll records.

Little surprise, then, that overtime pay has become nothing short of a scandal.

More than 4,000 postal workers last year actually earned more in OT pay than their base pay! And this in a time when employee numbers have gone up while the amount of mail delivered has declined.

CHILD SEX TRAFFICKING: [2:11] – In Atlanta, a two-week-long effort by the Marshals Service, state and local law enforcement rescued 26 children and safely locate another 13. The children ranged in ages from 3 to 17. Marshals believe at least 15 had been victimized by sex traffickers.

Last month, a similar effort in Michigan located 123 of the 301 children that had been reported missing in the area. Three cases that were related to sex trafficking and one homeless teen who had not eaten anything in three days.

GOP Convention Highlights

After I posted day one highlights, I meant to continue with daily highlight posts. That plan got scuttled by some dental work that proved to be more draining than expected. While I recuperated, the convention ended and I am scrambling to catch up on the three days I missed.

President Trump [52:08] surprise, off-the-cuff speech. His planned acceptance speech isn’t posted at YouTube yet, so I’ll try to remember to put it into Bits & Bytes after they get a round tuit.

Joe Biden would be nothing more than a Trojan horse for a radical left.” VP Pence’s acceptance speech is embedded at the link. I can’t find it on YouTube.

Madison Cawthorn [4:14] made an inspiring speech that you shouldn’t miss … especially the end!

Lara Trump [7:45] talked about Trump’s support for women and about the promise of America. “In recent months, we’ve seen weak, spineless politicians cede control of our great American cities to violent mobs. … Joe Biden will not do what is needed to keep us safe.”

First lady Melania Trump [26:34] gave her 2020 RNC speech from the Rose Garden at the White House. She talked about how COVID-19 has impacted our nation, how the White House celebrated the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage, and shared her story of coming to America as an immigrant.

Our classy FLOTUS may not be a dynamic speaker, but she surely didn’t deserve what Ugly Bette Midler tweeted. If still had any DVDs in which she appeared, I’d throw them out.

Sister Dede Byrne [3:59] spoke on the third night of the Republican National Convention on Aug. 26, 2020. She retired as a colonel from the U.S. Army Medical Corps in 2009 and is the superior of the D.C. Little Workers of the Sacred Hearts.

Byrne spoke of her opposition to abortion, saying, “As a physician, I can say unequivocally life begins at conception” and noted Biden and Harris are “the most anti-life presidential ticket ever” because they “support the horrors of late-term abortion and infanticide.”

Anti-abortion activist Abby Johnson [4:50] detailed her journey from director of an abortion facility to pro-life activist.

Johnson used vivid language to condemn abortion, detailing an abortion that she witnessed. “Abortion is very real,” Johnson said. “I know what it sounds like; what it smells like.”

Mark Hemingway of RealClear Investigations noted: “The GOP before Trump would have been terrified to air such explicit anti-abortion rhetoric in prime time.”

Catholic student Nicholas Sandmann [4:43] called out the cancel culture and media hysteria – In 2019, Sandmann was targeted and victimized by Native American activist Nathan Phillips.

My life changed forever in that one moment. The full war machine of the mainstream media revved up into attack mode,” Sandmann said

His final act is especially significant, because the reason Phillips targeted him was that he was wearings a red MAGA hat.

The media narrative for days after was that the MAGA hat was “the new KKK hood.

Left: Jason Joyce, an eighth-generation lobster fisherman from Maine, lamented an Obama–Biden administration move to order thousands of miles of ocean off-limits to commercial fishermen.

President Trump reversed that decision, reinstating the rules that allow stakeholder input, and he supports a process that seeks and respects fishermen’s views,” Joyce said.

Middle: Cris Peterson, owner of a 1,000-cow dairy farm in Wisconsin, said that business was horrible in 2016, with many generational farms across the nation going out of business.

More than any president, [Trump] has acknowledged the importance of farmers and agriculture. That support and focus on negotiating new trade deals gave us the confidence to rebuild our barn and dairy operation.”

Right: John Peterson, owner of a metal fabrication business, blamed the Obama–Biden administration for putting his business into a tailspin.

He praised the president for cutting regulations and putting an end to “draconian banking regulations” that made it difficult for his business to borrow money.

WASHINGTON: Seattle – On Monday, rioters attempted to seal cops inside the East Precinct building and set fire to the building. The officers inside were able to force their way out and disperse the rioters. One officer was injured and one suspect was arrested.

On Tuesday, police arrested Desmond David-Pitts, who reportedly confessed to his crime and was booked into King County Jail for first-degree arson. He was scheduled for a court appearance in King County Wednesday, before federal authorities stepped in to inform the county prosecutor’s office that they planned on pursuing first-degree arson charges at the federal level.

David-Pitts has been transferred into federal custody as a result. If for any reason federal authorities decide not to proceed with charges, the King County Prosecutor’s Office plans to move forward with charges of its own.

Pandemiquette

2020_08 27 Work from Home Playset

[I saw this on Facebook.]

Pandemiquette: Gracious behavior while navigating a pandemic.

1. Give grace as much as you give space. None of us have had to do this before, so just give people a break when they hurt your feelings, or come off as rude or fumble a bit.

2. Remember it’s not about you. Others’ decisions about what quarantine looks like may have nothing to do with you. So let them do what THEY need to do and understand that you don’t know all they are navigating.

3. When at a restaurant, perhaps politeness would be putting your mask on, even after seated, when talking to your masked server. Maybe… just masking up when someone you’re with is masked, is a good start. And then if they say, oh you don’t need to, you can decide.

4. Ask for what you want up front, with kindness, rather than complain about what you didn’t get afterwards. Prepare people you are going to be with, with what your expectations are regarding social distancing. Just let people know what you want in a way that is respectful and gracious. Just because you’re cautious or fearful doesn’t mean you get a pass to be rude and judgy. Remember it used to be not that long ago, that when folks got close to us, it was a sign of relationship, safety, warmth.

5. Don’t try to make sense of all the rules. We are all hypocrites in how we are dealing with this.

6. Smile BIG so your eyes crinkle. People can tell even behind the mask. And it matters right now to express warmth and kindness any way we can.

7. Look into those beautiful eyes looking at you. Kinda have to now right?

8. Keep your sense of humor. It’s all just so weird and laughing at ourselves in the awkwardness will help us all get through it.

So what are your pandemiquette tips?

GOP Convention: Day One

Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) spoke on the first night of the Republican National Convention on Aug. 24, 2020.

Growing up, he had to cross the street if a White person was coming. He suffered the indignity of being forced out of school as a third grader to pick cotton, and never learned to read or write. Yet, he lived to see his grandson become the first African American to be elected to both the United States House and Senate. Our family went from Cotton to Congress in one lifetime.

Nick Sandmann talked about how the hatred of the Left ruined his life.

The Left Stream Media disgust me. Everybody has seen the video of the far from peaceful protesters swarming past the gate and on to the McCloskeys’ property, demanding entrance to their home.

But, once again, the Slimers in the Left Stream Media referred to the McCloskeys as “that St Louis couple who brought out their rifles as Black Lives Matter protesters peacefully marched through their community.

Another speaker, Nick Sandmann, was referred to as another “disgraced” individual who “who interacted with the elder native American in DC.”

Again, we’ve all seen the videos showing that the Native American activist deliberately got up in to 16-year-old Nick’s face while his cohorts created distorted video of a young man attempting to be polite.

Sandmann has also won multiple lawsuits for defamation during the weeks after the incident when the media inflamed the nation against him and his school by depicting them as intolerant racists.

2020_08 25 covid

COVID-19: Jennifer Rubin at the Washington Post once opined that “more Republicans will die than Democrats,” because the coronavirus policies in red states like Texas, Arizona, and Arkansas, showed an “arrogant and reckless disregard of expert advice.

Uhhhhhhh … no. As the pandemic winds down, the numbers are proving the opposite to be true. A third of all U.S. coronavirus deaths occurred in just three states – New York, New Jersey, and California – all controlled exclusively by Democrats.

Last week, Joe Biden said during his acceptance speech that Trump bears the blame for the “more than 170,000 Americans [2ho] have died [from the coronavirus]. By far the worst performance of any nation on Earth.”

Again, no. The U.S. has recorded the highest total number of COVID-19 deaths in the world. But some countries (like China) are not being open about their numbers, while others haven’t done as much testing as we have. Besides which, adjusted for population, the U.S. is number 10, behind numerous countries in Europe and South America, including the United Kingdom and Spain.

ABORTION: Disturbing content [13:38] – On August 24th, the pro-life investigators of the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) released a new video showing sworn testimony of abortion industry officials, this time admitting that babies are sometimes delivered “intact” despite documenting the opposite intention on paper.

Full disclosure: This sickened me so much, I couldn’t watch it all.

Rioting in Kenosha, Wisconsin

A black man who was shot by police is the proximate excuse Black Lives Matter used to justify destroying yet another American city.

They trashed the downtown area, breaking windows and looting stores every where, all while screaming “Get the cash register” and “Hey, get all that sh**.”

They burned down a car dealership.

They even burned down a church that had a sign out front saying “Black Lives Matter”!

2020_08 24 Protesting

Rioters brandished semi-automatic rifles at police officers and law-abiding citizens and threw Molotov cocktails and bricks at officers at close range.

One officer was knocked out with a brick; as his fellow officers dragged his limp body to a safer location, the BLM thugs cheered, clapped, and shouted “F*** the police.

Wisconsin’s disgusting Democrat governor is condemning the cops, yet the man who was shot, Jacob Blake, had a warrant out for his arrest, a history of assaulting police, and past charges for domestic abuse & a sex crime. He also had a history of resisting arrest and keeping handguns under the seat of his SUV. He was shot while resisting arrest and reaching under the front seat of his SUV.

CLICK [:19] to see a video of the shooting incident that supposedly sparked the riots.

Now watch this video, which explains in simple terms how NOT to get shot by police.
