Uncivility

Yesterday, about 20 Trump supporters held a little rally on the sidewalk in front of our headquarters on Meadow St. (aka, Rte 13) in Ithaca.

Approximately 60 anti-Trumpers staged a counter-rally that started out on the sidewalk across the street. At some point, they swarmed across the street, getting right up in the faces of the Republicans and blocking traffic during rush hour on the city’s major artery.

Some jerk posted on Facebook that “A planned political rally being held by Tompkins County Republicans in the 300 block of South Meadow Street is blocking the right lanes of Route 13 northbound.

So typical to leave out the rather important detail that it was NOT the Republicans who were blocking traffic!

The Ithaca PD parked a couple of radio cars across on-coming traffic to protect the protesters, who apparently swarmed them too.

At least one of the Lefties was carrying a sign featuring a hammer smashing a piggy bank and saying, “Defund Police” so, in the cops’ defense, maybe they left because they were scared. Or maybe the far-left, deep blue PTBs running Ithaca told them to leave.

In any event, they were clearly not prepared for the little GOP rally to turn into a nasty mess. They did nothing to protect the Republicans from the snarling mob screaming “Fascists Go Home”, not even when the thugs stole and set fire to Trump signs, flags, and hats.

The anti-Trumpers shouted “You’re not welcome here” and “Go inside” at the Trump supporters, while pushing and shoving them until they retreated inside the Republican storefront. Towards the end of the rally, several protesters tore down the “Vote Republican” banner.

After over two hours, the thugs declared “victory” and marched to the Commons through the streets, blocking traffic and garnering cheers and waves. There, they celebrated and discussed future plans.

Today was a tremendous victory for the forces of anti-racism,” their spokesman said. “It was a spontaneous and almost joyful display of, not only disgust with racism and fascism, but also a positive affirmation of an alternative politics, celebrating human dignity.

Dearest was at this thing for a while. He told me after he got home that it got scary enough that his heart started racing. Since he’s scheduled for heart surgery next month, he left early.

I am profoundly grateful that he and all our GOP friends stayed calm and got out of this thing without injury. The photo below is a screen grab I did from video that one of our GOP friends took. It scared the bejeebers out of me.

We’re not holding our breaths for the Ithaca police or District Attorney’s office to give a crap about the well documented fact that far-from-peaceful protesters blocked traffic, menaced peaceful protesters, and destroyed many dollars worth of private property.

2020: Trump jokes, Leftist heads explodes – CLICK https://twitter.com/DonaldJTrumpJr/status/1315826510020968448 [:20] to hear The Donald joke about how powerful he feels now that he’s conquered COVID-19. If you can be bothered, you can click to read the Ludicrous Left’s reactions. Or you could watch paint dry, which would leave you far more fulfilled as a human being and spare you losing any IQ points.

2020: Creepy Uncle Joe – Joe Biden’s law school roommate says Biden admitted to him that he is sexually attracted to children. The roomie says Biden “used to say it was his ‘civic responsibility’ and that if he didn’t ‘choke the chicken’ or ‘clean the hosepipe’ before spending time around children he wouldn’t be able to keep his hands off them.

ACB: “How low can you go?” [1:28] Criticizing white Americans for adopting kids out of poverty in third world nations is so offensive. Would these buttheads prefer those kids stayed in their dirt poor orphanages where they are unlikely to get anything good … nutrition, education, health care, opportunities?

When asked by Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-MN, if Roe v. Wade was a “super-precedent” of the Court, Barrett indicated that it was not. She said super-precedents are cases like Brown v. Board of Education, which ended segregation in public schools, that virtually no one wants to repeal. “And I’m answering a lot of questions about Roe, which I think indicates that Roe doesn’t fall in that category,” Barrett said.

CNN’s John King said Judge Amy Coney Barrett “would be getting 70 votes or more in the United States Senate” if she had been nominated by “another Republican president in another age.

BORDER: Federal customs officers working at a border crossing between California and the Mexican city of Tijuana seized 3,000 pounds of meth from a commercial truck. This bust was the second-largest bust of its kind in history.

CATHOLIC: [3:55] – In a devastating appraisal of Pope Francis’ latest encyclical Fratelli Tutti (All Brothers), Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò called out its failure to take abortion seriously.

This deafening silence concerning the most odious crime in the eyes of God – because it is committed upon an innocent and defenseless child depriving it of life – betrays the twisted vision of this ideological manifesto that is in the service of the New World Order.

Archbishop Viganò says that the encyclical’s apparent hope to bring hope to all men of the earth is misguided since, “in order to truly desire the good of modern man it is necessary to wake him out of his hypnotic spell of do-goodery, ecologism, pacifism, ecumenism, and globalism. In order to want the good of sinful and rebellious man, it is necessary to make him understand that by distancing himself from his Creator and Lord he will end up being a slave of Satan and of himself.

Archbishop Viganò spells out “the only hope to foster peace and harmony among men” is “by conforming to the will of God.”

CCP: A series of leaked documents shows that patients in China with symptoms similar to COVID-19 were hospitalized months before the regime’s official timeline, throwing into question when exactly the CCP virus began spreading in Wuhan, China’s epidemic ground zero.

At least one patient started experiencing COVID-19-like symptoms in September 2019. Dozens more were hospitalized over the following month. And Wuhan hospitals reported several deaths in October 2019 due to severe pneumonia, lung infections, and other symptoms similar to COVID-19 patients.

ECONOMY: [21:12] – When Obama left office, the Congressional Budget Office projected fewer than 2 million jobs would be created during the next three years. Because of tax cuts and removal of burdensome government regulations, the Trump economy created SEVEN million jobs.

FACEBOOK: When Sandra Merritt and David Daleiden exposed Planned Parenthood’s illegal trafficking of aborted baby body parts, Kamala Harris was California’s Attorney General. Rather than going after Planned Parenthood, Harris went after Merritt and Daleiden for making the undercover videos in the first place.

But the journalists had carefully researched what was and was not allowed in California when it came to recording other people without their knowledge or consent. The undercover videos that exposed Planned Parenthood’s illegal activities did not violate California video recording law. But Harris didn’t care about that any more than she cared that Planned Parenthood was routinely lying to patients, altering abortion procedures, and violating the law to harvest and sell fetal tissues and organs at great profit.

LifeSite News exposed Harris’ prosecutorial misconduct in August. Because Harris is running for VP, the article has been getting a lot of hits. So Facebook ginned up a false fact check to justify squashing it. LifeNews has posted a “part 2” to the story (third link below) that repeats the original story and refutes Facebook’s fake fact check.

The federal government provided Facebook (and other social media sites, like Twitter) protection from lawsuits by designating them “platforms”, not “publishers.” Their politically-biased blocking of right-wing material violates by election law and this “platform” designation.

NEW MOM: Call her Esquire – This lady’s water broke as she finished the first of four, 90-minute sections in her online bar exam. Her midwife told her she didn’t have to go to the hospital right away, so Hill finished the second part of the test. Later that night, she delivered a baby boy. Hill finished the third and fourth parts of the exam while at the hospital, nursing her baby in between.

ORTHODOX JEWISH VOTE: A new national poll commissioned by @Ami_Magazine, shows Trump 83% vs. Biden 13% vs. Undecided 4%.

This marks a 29% swing in favor of Trump since 2016.

The poll was conducted with 1,000 Orthodox Jews from 22 states and has a margin of error of 3.1 percentage points.

PROJECT VERITAS: A Democratic party activist in Colorado has been sayinghe will lie, cheat, and steal to win. He called this all “morally acceptable.” The video is embedded at the link.

RUDY’S COMMON SENSE: [16:01] – Giuliani talks about how the Biden “crime family” raked in millions from Iraq, Ukraine, Russia, and China, while Joe was Obama’s Vice President.

Among other things, he presents a text message, allegedly from Hunter Biden to his daughter, Naomi, in which he says that his father (“Pop”) took half of his “salary.

TWITTER: Twitter locked the Trump Campaign’s account for tweeting the New York Post article about Joe and Hunter Biden’s collusion with Burisma.

Then the Biden campaign said the collusion story must not be true, because Twitter had blocked it.

Senator Ted Cruz, chairman of the Constitution Subcommittee of the Senate Judiciary Committee wrote the letter above to Twitter’s CEO, Jack Dorsey, demanding answers for this flagrant and egregious violation of the public’s trust.
