Bits & Bytes

2020: Polls – Sharyl Atkisson at Just the News notes a few trends that should encourage us.

  1. Biden vs. Trump gambling odds have shifted from 61% vs. 36.4% on Aug. 1 to 50.7% vs. 48.3% on Sept. 1.
  2. Trump is behind in all but one battleground state (NC is tied), but he is slightly ahead of where he was at this point back in 2016 when he won the election.
  3. Trump’s daily total approval rating among likely voters is frequently better than President Obama’s was at the same points in his presidency.

Also, a LOT of Obama’s first time voters defected in 2012, when he won anyway. But do any of us know of ANYONE who voted for Trump in 2016 who is planning to vote for Biden this time?!

BIDEN: Fracking – On Monday, Slow Joe emphatically stated, “I am not banning fracking. Let me say that again. I am not banning fracking, no matter how many times Donald Trump lies about it.

Except (as the video shows), he has said repeated that he will ban fracking. CLICK [:57] for a split screen version of his flip flop.

BIDEN: In April 2019, Slow Joe kicked off his third presidential campaign by endorsing ANTIFA.

Now that the Left has figured out that their support for rioting and looting is hurting them in the polls, Joe Biden has suddenly come out with a law-and-order statement.

Rioting is not protesting. Looting is not protesting. Setting fires is not protesting … it’s lawlessness, plain and simple,” said Biden on Monday.

Yeah … well … ANTIFA’s violent methods may be really out there now, but they were well documented in April 2019 too.

BIDEN: Violence – On Monday, Slow Joe claimed he condemned, “violence of every kind by anyone, whether on the left or the right.

Yeah. No.

During the entire four days of the Democrat convention, not one of the speakers had a word of condemnation for the rioting, looting, and soaring crime rates in Democrat-run cities.

Not Biden, not his running mate, not nobody.

CALIFORNIA: CLICK [2:37] – Nancy Pelosi is above the local coronavirus rules barring indoor personal-care services.

FLORIDA: CLICK [4:00] – Gov. DeSantis promises that Florida will never shut down again.

OREGON: [:18] – Day 96 of Portland “mostly peaceful” rioting took “protesters” to Portland’s pro-protest, Democrat Mayor Ted Wheeler’s apartment building on Monday night. While there, they started a fire in the street, set off loud fireworks, and chanted ‘happy tear gas to you’ on his 58th birthday.

TENNESSEE: Since 1994, Rep. John DeBerry has represented the Memphis area in the Tennessee state legislature. He is also a minister in the Church of Christ.

In April, the Democratic Party tossed him out, saying his commitment to defending the rights of the unborn does not reflect the party’s values.

My work in Nashville as a legislator is nothing more than an extension of my work as a child of God, as a Christian,” DeBerry says.

And I take to heart Ephesians chapter 6, ‘We wrestle not against flesh and blood’—people are not the enemy, but there are those who make laws that are blasphemous of God’s law.”

WASHINGTON, DC: Dan Bongino explains the latest weirdness in Mike Flynn’s case of “legal dodge ball”, beginning at about 31 minutes. (Before that, he talks about Biden’s speech. After that, he talks about the rage mobs.)

Short version: District Judge Emmet Sullivan is a political hack in a robe who is trying to drag the case out until after the election in hopes the Democrats win and they can relitigate the disgusting lynching of Flynn.

Justice delayed is justice denied.

CATHOLIC: During the French Revolution, the government confiscated the Catholic Church’s French land holdings, destroyed monastic orders, and demanded clergy swear allegiance to France before the papacy.

Priests were required to take an oath which amounted to a denial of the faith. Blessed John Francis Burté and 184 others who refused were arrested, imprisoned, and ultimately executed.

COVID-19: Hydroxychloroquine – Countries with early widespread HCQ use had significantly fewer COVID-19 deaths per million.

The people who demonized this life-saving drug have blood on their hands.

DEFUND POLICE: Reality check [5:51] – Defunding police will aggravate, not solve the problem.

IN DEFENSE OF LOOTING: A Riotous History of Uncivil Action by Vicky Osterweil – “Osterweil argues that stealing goods and destroying property are direct, pragmatic strategies of wealth redistribution and improving life for the working class.”

The blerbs are from Amazon, where the book sells for $16.99 in Kindle or $21.03 in hard cover. Or take Osterweil at his/her transgendered word and loot one from your local retailer.

All our beliefs about the innate righteousness of property and ownership, Osterweil explains, are built on the history of anti-Black, anti-Indigenous oppression.”

I’m sorry, but what the aitch ee double hockey sticks is this noodle brain talking about?! Animals scent mark and defend their territories and every two year old I ever met knew instinctively what “mine!” means.

Sheesh.

USPS: The media is pushing a new fake news conspiracy theory to try and score political points against the Trump administration. This one claims that veterans aren’t getting their prescription drugs delivered in a timely way for the U.S. Postal Service. It’s a lie.

VA fills more than 150 million prescriptions each year, and about 86% of them are delivered through the U.S. Postal Service. Most veterans are satisfied with our service, which is most recently getting prescriptions to veterans in an average of 2.89 days — faster than our target of three to five days.”

ARGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WordPress has officially FORCED DOWN MY THROAT a new and VERY CONFUSING editor.

But wait … I have a “very simple” option to restore the old, familiar, Classic editor (which I can use with my eyes closed).

Slight hitch … we’d have to upgrade to “Business” to use it … for the “no way in HELL” PRICE OF $25 PER MONTH.

Thursday, September 3rd, 2020 is OFFICIALLY STARTING OFF VERY BADLY!!

My 9/3 Bits & Bytes is all written and formatted, because I do it in a text editor the day before, then polish and post after it’s had time to simmer. (Actually, after I’ve had some rest and can see my own typos!)

If the 9/3 edition EVER appears here, picture me sweaty and probably sitting in a corner somewhere sucking my thumb.
