2020: Say NO to the mob [2:23]

TRUMP: Presidential Memorandum Reviewing Funding to State and Local Governments – “My Administration will not allow Federal tax dollars to fund cities that allow themselves to deteriorate into lawless zones.”

The Democrat mayors of Portland, Seattle, Washington, and New York City issued a joint statement saying their residents “are not President Trump’s political pawns.” DeBlasio added, “We will see you in court.”

BLM: “”I was on the roof of my building in Los Angeles, and I was looking around town and the whole town was on fire because of radical BLM domestic terrorists. Anybody who honestly cares about black people could not support Black Lives Matter — it’s a terrorist organization, and personally I think it’s the KKK in blackface.” – Christian Walker, the 20 yo son of football legend Herschel Walker

DEFUND POLICE: A new poll showed the unsurprising fact that a majority (61%) of Americans do NOT want police defunded.

Only 24% of those polled support the idea. This is the same kind of numbers I’ve been seeing for decades for support for unrestricted abortion.

2020: Biden – CLICK [:16] to hear a woman at a Biden event say she had been given a paper telling her what to say when she was called upon.

2020: The “shy voter” demographic – Given the Left’s nasty cancel culture, it’s not surprising that Trump supporters are less than eager to share their preferences with pollsters.

Some researchers recently tried to suss out how big this “shy voter” demographic might be and how they might affect election outcomes.

Their results suggest they make up about 6% of Trump supporters and 3% of Biden supporters, a difference that basically wipes out Biden’s alleged 3 point lead.

COVID-19: CLICK [4:35] to hear a physician say he thinks we’re mostly done. He stresses that the public needs good information given in context, not the politicized shrieking we’ve been mostly subjected to for months.

He also explains that about 50% of Americans have a degree of immunity to COVID-19 due to T-cells their bodies created to similar coronaviruses in the past.

COVID-19: Supercomputer analysis of the virus – The article linked below is beyond my high school biology education, but it looks like it would be interesting to folks who can understand it.

COVID-19: “The lockdown has gone from a mistake to a crime” – Dennis Prager.

2020: Liberal Dictionary

Biden empowers women and minorities by choosing black woman for VP.

Trump panders to women and minorities by endorsing black woman for Congress.

PELOSI: [4:38] – Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi claims she didn’t know the current pandemic rule about hair salons in San Francisco, but “trusted” the stylist who opened the shop to do her hair.

I can’t help wondering what the stylist was supposed to do when the most powerful Democrat in the country asked for an appointment, especially when said stylist is probably hurting badly for income.

The stylist rents space inside the shop whose owner, understandably angry about Pelosi expecting special treatment, leaked the security camera footage.

Does Pelosi apologize for expecting her super special hair deserved super special treatment? Nope. She claimed the whole thing “was a setup” and that “this salon owes me an apology.”

PELOSI: “Since this has happened, I have received nothing but hate text messages, death threats, [saying that] they’re going to burn my hair salon down,” says the salon owner. “My Yelp page is just unbelievable with bad reviews.”

South Dakota’s Republican Governor Kristi Noem tweeted a personal message to the salone owner: “Erika, if you want to run your salon in a state that respects Freedom and won’t shut you down, then South Dakota is open for you.”

PELOSI: The top lawmaker in the country claims she “didn’t know” the rule that had been set in place by her party’s leaders in the district she represents.

She’s THIRD IN LINE for the presidency!

President Trump tweeted, “Maybe the Beauty Parlor owner should be running the House of Representatives instead of Crazy Nancy?”

BONGINO: Episode 1337 [1:01:25] – During the first half hour or so, Dan spews about Pelosi’s hair salon incident and all that it and she represent.

COSBY: [22:54] – Dan Bongino’s rant about Wokeistanianism reminded me of a Bill Cosby routine about prejudice that I saw once on a religious retreat. Thanks to the internet, I found it on YouTube. It’s worth your time.

BIDEN: Joe Grope – In 2009, an unidentified Secret Service agent was suspended for a week for “shoving Biden after he cupped his girlfriend’s breast while the couple was taking a photo with him.”

According to the report, “The situation got so heated … that others had to step in to prevent the agent from hitting the then-Vice President.”

Judicial Watch filed a FOIA request for the report. The Secret Service told them it had been destroyed. Judicial Watch is suing.

STEAL STUFF: Just not my book – I looked this book up on Amazon and clicked “Write a review.” This popped up. “Amazon has noticed unusual reviewing activity on this product. Due to this activity, we have limited this product to verified purchase reviews.” LOL!!

A few that slipped through before they blocked unverified purchasers … “Since Amazon doesn’t have a physical bookstore from which I can steal this book, will they please implement a virtual looting option?” “I gave it 2 stars instead of 1 because while it is empty headed garbage, it was a bargain since I shoplifted it.” “This is the kind of “reasoning” that will get Trump re-elected.” ::snicker::

COLORADO: Boulder – A 12-year-old boy told his mother that an adult woman confronted him over his “Trump 2020” sign. He heard her say something like, “You want something to look at,” then punched him in the back of the head and arms four or five times with a closed fist, and scratched him.

Police say the event did occur and that they are looking for the woman. The boy says he is now afraid to show his support for the president.

ILLINOIS: Chicago – When rioters moved their mess to the mayor’s front stoop, she ordered Chicago PD to close off her neighborhood and arrest anyone who refused to leave. Her neighbors said there have been as many as 50 cops in the neighborhood, checking IDs before letting residents go to their homes.

Lightfoot says she is justified in using city resources to protect her home and family. I guess the people whose homes and businesses have been in the other neighborhoods where the rioters have gone are just not as worthy as she is. Or something.

IOWA: Cedar Falls – Some loser left a plastic skull covered in profanity and threats near a pro-Trump yard sign outside an older couple’s home. The skull was filled with hateful messages written in black permanent marker, including “I hope you die before you can vote.”

MISSOURI: St. Louis – Democrat mayors seem to start out by supporting BLM and trying to appease them. But then the ungrateful anarchists end up bringing their bullhorns and fireworks to the mayors’ personal homes. Two of them – Portland’s Mayor Wheeler and St. Louis’ Mayor Krewson – have decided it’s best if they just pack up and move.

It’s interesting to note that the Krewson home is in the same gated community where Mark and Patricia McCloskey live. Remember them? The couple who were filmed pointing guns at a rowdy mob that barged through their gates, demanding to be allowed into their home?

St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner filed felony charges against them, which the Missouri AG sought to have dismissed. The McCloskeys later spoke about their experiences at the Republican National Convention.

NEW YORK: NYC – A new survey of residents of the five buroughs found 46% unbelievably think that New York is still heading in the right direction. Forty-two percent said it’s on the wrong track, citing the economy and public safety as the biggest concerns.

Given the deep blue predominance of Democrats in the rotten apple, I guess 42% is a huge number. And these are the same people who elected AOC and Mayor DeBlasio, so there’s that. Also, a whole lot of people who certainly would’ve said “wrong track” weren’t available to pollsters, having already made their own tracks to go live somewhere else.

OREGON: Portland – Mr. 100% Antifa is dead after pulling a gun on federal agents who came to arrest him.

WASHINGTON, DC: [4:19] – There was a police shooting in Washington, DC, on Wednesday. Immediately, there were claims that police had “murdered” 18-year-old Deon Kay by shooting him in the back. But the body camera footage showed that Kay did have a gun and was shot in the chest while running toward an officer.

WISCONSIN: Green Bay – Last Saturday, Green Bay PD arrested ANTIFA organizer Matthew “Commander Red” Banta with a flamethrower and smoke grenades on his way to a protest. He was accompanied by others wearing helmets and armed with sticks and baseball bats that they claimed were for self-defense.

The Green Bay police chief said, “I don’t know who comes to a protest with a baseball bat for anything other than criminal or illegal activity.”

When detained, Banta dropped to the ground, curled up into the fetal position and began crying.

Ed Morrissey writes at Hot Air that his response is a tactical and strategic move taught to Antifa members designed to make themselves look like victims of police abuse.
