BIDEN: The Logan Act bars private citizens from engaging in U.S. foreign policy. During the Obama-Trump transition period and at Joe Biden’s suggestion, the FBI accused National Security Advisor Michael Flynn of violating the Logan Act. As we know, his case is still stuck in a partisan judge’s court.

The latest revelation in the sick tale of Democrat skulduggery stems from a newly leaked 2016 phone call between Biden and then- President of the Ukraine Poroshenko.

During the call, occurred at the very same time Joe was accusing Trump’s NSA of violating the Logan Act, Joe Biden himself violated the Logan Act by slandering the incoming administration and offering to continue to act as Ukraine’s go-to guy with the U.S.

The truth of the matter is that the incoming administration doesn’t know a great deal about [Ukraine]. I don’t plan on going away. As a private citizen, I plan on staying deeply engaged in the endeavor that you have begun and we have begun.”

BLM: Partnering with ChiComs to destroy America – BLM co-founder Alicia Garza, a trained Marxist, is committed to destroying the American dream and replacing it with a Communist dictatorship. Toward that end, BLM partners with other Marxist organizations, like the Chinese Progressive Association.

CDC: Health and Human Services Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs Michael Caputo says the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is harboring an anti-Trump cabal of scientists responsible for the demonizing of hydroxychloroquine in the name of promoting Democrats at the expense of public health.

There have been nearly a hundred studies on the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine, most of them peer-reviewed, which indicate that the drug has a positive impact on COVID-19 mortality, particularly when administered early. Yet the CDC still makes specious claims about how allegedly dangerous the drug is.

There are scientists who work for this government who do not want America to get well, not until after Joe Biden is president.” – Michael Caputo

COVID-19: Proof has emerged that Democrats are hurting people purely for political gain – CLICK [5:15] to hear Tucker out that Nashville’s Democrat Mayor Cooper HIDING the fact that bars and restaurants could reopen.

A woman from the health department actually emailed Cooper’s office asking for clarification. “This isn’t going to be publicly released, right? Just info for Mayor’s Office?” A senior adviser to the mayor responded, “Correct, not for public consumption.”

DENTAL MALPRACTICE: [1:13] – In addition to the hover board thing, former Anchorage dentist Seth Lookhart has been sentenced to 12 years for Medicaid fraud and dental malpractice. Among other things, he nearly killed several patients by sedating them for longer periods of time than required.

HIGHER EDUCATION: These are the people teaching our kids – For Constitution Day, a professor at Vassar tweeted out a video of herself shredding the Constitution, because “overall I see it as a really oppressive document.”

MEDIA MALPRACTICE: What happened to Fox News? – George Soros has spent millions of dollars influencing American elections. He bears a lot of responsibility for the presence of anti-American, pro-Marxist District Attorneys with pro-criminal tendencies.

But don’t try to talk about him on Fox News’ “Outnumbered.” On Wednesday, Newt Gingrich said, “The number one problem in almost all these cities is George-Soros-elected, left-wing, anti-police, pro-criminal district attorneys who refuse to keep people locked up. Just yesterday, they put somebody back on the street who was wanted for two different murders in New York City. Uh — you cannot solve this problem both Harris and Biden have talked very proudly about what they call progressive district attorneys. Progressive district attorneys are anti-police, pro-criminal, and overwhelmingly elected with George Soros’ money. And, they are a major cause of the violence we are seeing because they keep putting the violent criminals back on the street.”

The program’s co-host, Melissa Francis, responded, “I’m not sure we need to bring George Soros into this.

He [Soros] paid for it,” Gingrich responded. “Why can’t we discuss the fact that millions of dollars he spent elected these people.

No, he didn’t,” Panelist Marie Harf interjected, cutting the former speaker off. “I agree with Melissa, George Soros doesn’t need to be a part of this conversation.”

So, it’s verboten?” Gingrich said as an awkward silence took over the broadcast.

GET OUT OF JAIL FREE: In June, Kamala Harris urged her followers to contribute to the Minnesota Freedom Fund (MFF). So much money flooded into the MFF’s coffers that it has been able to bail out some seriously bad guys whose bail was set high to keep them off the streets.

MFF provided bail for a registered sex offender who has been accused of raping an 8-year-old girl and for a twice-convicted rapist who has been accused of kidnapping and sexual assault.

MFF provided bail for another guy who had beat someone up in on a bus. While out on bail, the guy beat someone else so badly, the victim suffered a traumatic brain injury. MFF said the second assault was a failure of the criminal justice system. Riiiight.

MFF provided bail for a guy who was charged with aggravated robbery. While out on bail, he assaulted and robbed a nother man, knocking him to the ground and repeatedly kicking and punching him. Then he stomped on the victim’s head and robbed him.

MFF provided bail for a man who has been accused of burglarizing and assaulting his 71-year-old mother in violation of an active order of protection. The victim says that when she confronted her son about why he was at her home, he grabbed her, threw her down, punching and kicking her in the ribs, back, and right eye. Then he duct taped ankles and wrists together and stomped on her. Then he made himself some food and took a nap on the couch. He has violated his bail terms and is in the wind.

Harris is supposed to be a lawyer. You’d think she’d understand that giving bail money to criminals defeats the whole purpose of bail, which is to make it too costly for a criminal to jump bail. When the MFF posts bail, the criminals not only have zero incentive to show up to court, but have received the clear message that it’s A-OK for them to re-offend, cuz some libtard is sure to let them back out on the street.

MAIL-IN VOTING: Sussex County, NJ, just stumbled across a box containing 1,666 primary votes that were never counted. That amounts to 5.5% of the total ballots cast in the July primary.

PEACEFUL PROTEST: Over the week-end, authorities believe this woman is responsible for the “gifts” of dog poop that Hampden, Maine, Trump supporters found in their mail boxes.

RIOTS: It’s obvious that this is a coordinated, interstate operation. In city after city, the tactics, banners, clothing, weaponry, etc. have been virtually identical. Vans with supplies traveling cross-country have been intercepted. Out-of-state perpetrators have been arrested. Somebody is buying, transporting, and distributing guns, lasers, explosives, military helmets, protective gloves, body armor, and other deadly weaponry.

SPYGATE: FISA abuse – A newly declassified document proves that anti-Trumpers in the U.S. government did not have probably cause to obtain any of the four FISA warrants they filed to get permission to spy on Carter Page and, via the two hop rule, on Candidate Trump and then on President Trump. So they lied.

STANDING DOWN: In Aurora, Colorado, police were called repeatedly about a man who had exposed himself to children, smashed up a lot of property and threatened multiple people with injury.

Things got so bad for the residents of the apartment complex where this man was living that the Fire Department had to come and rescue two people through a window on the second floor using a ladder.

But because the thug was a POC, the police were told repeatedly to leave him alone, lest a confrontation turn violent. One can see their reasoning. Better a few locals have their lives ruined than some thug get shot by a cop and the whole town burn. But if good men do nothing, the bad men will win without lifting a finger.

GRAMMY NOTES: Bootz is doing a letter a week. After he made the play dough shapes, he used markers to turn the A into an angel and the a into an allosaur. They are also doing a treasure hunt each week, featuring items around the house that start with that letter.

IT’S NOT NORMAL: [12:45] – Fr. Robert Altier of the Archdiocese of St. Paul/Minneapolis discusses the current crisis in our nation and how forces of evil are trying to impose a new normal that is anything but normal.

2020: CLICK [:14] to hear the latest sad blitherings of a man who should be living a quiet life in retirement. In another clip, he mentioned how many troops died in “Iran and Afghanistan” today. In a third, he said that the VA must “remote out veterans over all well-being.”

This is much more serious that making fun of the fact that the Democrat nominee is clearly suffering from dementia and an inability to process basic thoughts. Elections are not a joke. Policies are not a joke. If Biden can’t be off prompter long enough to articulate something as simple as what he was trying to say here, how is he going to manage a presidency? The simple answer is that he’s not. Hence Kamala Harris basically admitting it’s her administration recently.

Everyone knows what’s really happening here and it’s one of the most dishonest bait and switches to ever happen in politics. In fact, I’m struggling to think of another comparable situation. Never before have we had a nominee lacking the ability to even do basic campaigning, much less perform the job he’s running for. Democrats think they can just pull the wool over the eyes of voters long enough to spring President Kamala on them down the road, but that’s not how any of this is supposed to work. The person you run is expected to be able to fulfill his term. Biden clearly is not going to do that.

This is elder abuse at this point. Biden’s wife should seriously think about what she’s putting her husband through. I mean that seriously.” – Bonchie at Red State

BLM: BLM co-founder Patrice Cullors explains something we’ve seen again and again on the harassment videos – i.e., BLM bullies shouting “say their names” over and over at their targets.

This has deep spiritual significance to the demon worshipers in Black Lives Matter. According to Cullors. “When we say the names, right, so we speak their names, we say her name, say their names, we do that all the time that, you kind of invoke that spirit, and then those spirits actually become present with you.

If you ever get targeted, speak the name of Jesus! (And if you don’t already know how, learn to bind spirits.)

BY THEIR FRUITS: “Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.” (Matthew 7:20) – “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.” (Galatians 5:22, 23)

Which of these fruits of God’s spirit do you see manifested in the necromancy, ancestor worship, summoning spirits of the “dead,” violence, rioting, looting, murder, the avowed Marxist goal of destroying this country and its government, and the unyielding, unrepentant hatred by BLM (and their Antifa partners-in-crime) toward anyone who doesn’t buy into their evil philosophies?

I support freedom of conscience and equal justice under the law for everyone, but I reject BLM-the-organization on the basis of its true, OPENLY STATED goals, not the phony ones they prefer to present to a gullible public.” – Frankly the Nut

CATHOLIC VOTER GUIDE: The printable, unbiased pdf document (link below) presents every stance as a direct quote from both parties’ official platforms, not a summary by someone favorable to either side.

Because it is non-partisan, it can be freely posted and distributed at churches and 501-(c)-3 organizations without threat to their tax status.

CATHOLIC “APOLOGETICS”: “Apologetics is a theological endeavor in which the truth of the Christian faith, along with its doctrines, is established and defended. Christian Apologetics uses the Bible, evidence, and logic.”

But there is a new form … which is when Catholic church leaders apologize for a member of the clergy upsetting Democrats by telling the truth.

Father Paul Graney, an associate pastor at the Church of the Divine Child in Dearborn, MI, provides one example. He gave a homily in which he warned that the agendas of Black Lives Matter and Antifa were aimed at tearing down America. The things he said are objectively and demonstratively TRUE.

But his boss, Father Bob McCabe, the pastor at Divine Child, publicly disavowed him, saying he didn’t agree with what Father Graney had said and he was “so sorry that a homily given by Father Paul Graney at the 4:30 p.m. Mass on Saturday has brought forth division, anger, confusion, and chaos.

CLIMATE CHANGE: Apparently, there is no climate change in the vast forested regions of Canada. Or something.

COVID-19: It looks to me like we’re done with it. Democrats will not figure this out until November 4th, when they will drop the whole subject like a hot potato and move on to the next Orange Man Bad scam.

CLICK [3:38] to hear Jake Tapper get his panties in a bunch because Peter Navarro refuses to give him the sound bite he wants.

Re: Tapper’s claim that we have a much higher percentage of coronavirus deaths –

  1. The CDC and other organizations have admitted they artificially inflated U.S. death counts.
  2. Democrats demonized the cheap and effective drug, hydroxychloroquine, which appears to have prevented COVID-19 from devastating areas of the world where HCQ is used routinely for malaria.
  3. Democrats forced nursing homes to admit COVID-19 patients into their most vulnerable populations where it killed thousands.

The Washington Examiner article gives Trump’s response to the question Tapper harped on.

DEMOCRATS: This is insulting. “The virus will go away if Joe wins.” How dumb do they think we are?! … Oh wait. They’re talking to their base. Never mind.

EVIL: “This is happening on Trump’s watch” … but only in Democrat-run communities and with the support and encouragement of Biden’s supporters.

FAKE NEWS: Another Slime Stream Media FAILURE.

MIDDLE EAST: CLICK [:47] to hear Kayleigh McEnany call out the biased media for ignoring, downplaying, or even criticizing the Middle East peace accord brokered by President Donald J. Trump.

Washington Examiner editorial – “Though the media are taking great pains to ignore it, the agreement by Israel and Bahrain to establish full diplomatic relations, coming on the heels of a similar agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, is welcome news.

It reflects a growing recognition by the Sunni Arab monarchies and Israel that their interests are best served by a partnership, and the Trump administration deserves credit for helping it through. Were President Barack Obama or a President Hillary Clinton presently in the Oval Office, the columnist calls for Nobel Peace Prizes would be deafening.

It would be a mistake to underplay the significance of and complexity in getting to this point.

MILITARY: The Obama administration (with some help from Bill Clinton’s presidency) seeded the Pentagon with leftist generals whose allegiance was to the Deep State.

The article at Red State details the situation as it stands today. I’ve still got kids in uniform, so in the interests of my mental health, I’m going to stick my head in the sand on this one.

NEW YORK: [9:20] – What do you do when your policies drive your wealthiest residents to move elsewhere? If you’re Bill DeBlasio, you double down on all the policies that destroyed your city in the first place.

OHIO: Little Miami – Two high school football players carried “thin blue line” and “thin red line” flags onto the field at a 9/11 game.

They had asked and been denied permission to carry the flags to honor 9/11 first responders, but decided to do it anyway. They were suspended from the team for allegedly making an inappropriate political statement.

The story went viral and the internet broohaha brought about a quick reversal. The players were reinstated

It’s not only sad, but also very telling about today’s politics that honoring American heroes with American flags is seen as a partisan political statement worthy of punishment.

PIG FISHING: [2:16] – What a jerk.

PLOT TO OUST TRUMP: [4:30] – Darren Beattie: “What’s unfolding before our eyes is a very specific type of coup called the ‘Color Revolution.'” He says Norm Eisen is the architect behind the Left’s efforts to overthrow Trump.

SEDITION: “Every day in every town, We burn our cities to the ground” – “Mostly peaceful” [:31] – Attorney General William Barr set liberal heads on “explode” when he told the nation’s federal prosecutors to be aggressive when charging violent demonstrators with crimes, including sedition.

Earlier this month, he noted that there is no question that Antifa is a seditious movement. “They have websites. They are organized…Anyone who has spent a moment at these things and heard their chants and what they’re calling for can see right away that they are, they say they are, revolutionaries, that this is a revolution.

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow tweeted, “The attorney general has gone off the deep end. This is nuts.”

The “Biden/Harris War Room” tweeted, “Racism is so deeply entrenched in society that when you protest it, those that benefit from it consider it sedition. While one candidate doesn’t recognize the existence of systemic racism and tries to maintain it, Joe Biden will fight to eliminate it.”

Matthew Miller, who was director of the Washington Post‘s Justice Department’s public affairs office from 2009 to 2011, tweeted, “Sedition is the bad penny that shows up at some of the worst moments in our history. Barr is going to play every authoritarian card he can to help Trump hang on to power.

Nick Arama at Red State remarked about the tweeters: “I don’t think liberals get what they look like when they appear to defend things like this and the related violence as mere ‘protesting‘.”

THIN BLUE LINE: One of these officers is dead [15:56] – The video inspired Amy Swearer, a senior legal policy analyst for Heritage, to compose a Twitter thread in which she noted she was “tired of the one-sided conversations on policing.”

The thread is reproduced at the Red State link. The numerous tweets include links, so I’ll ask you to go there to read it all.

VACCINE: Matthew Hanley writes that a vaccine is not necessary before life can return to normal. – “The overall survival rate for those exposed to the coronavirus is likely somewhere north of 99.6 percent. COVID-19 mortality has largely run its course in a great many places (as viruses tend to do). And no vaccine has ever been successfully developed for any virus in the corona family.”

I’m guessing Democrats will suddenly lose all interest in the alleged lethality of COVID-19 on November 4 and the kids will all go back to school without the Slime Stream Media paying more than a minute or two notice.

GRAMMY NOTES: I voted twice for my hubby in the 2020 village election … but they were both legal. I vote by absentee ballot and, being excited to vote for my Dearest, I filled out the village ballot as soon as it came and mailed it back. Then the shut-down hit and the election was postponed until this week. So I got to vote again.

BRAINWASHING: On the first day of school, an 11th-grade teacher at Westlake High School in Westchester County in New York gave his students a hand-out entitled “European Colonization of America” that featured the cartoon above. The school administration says they are investigating.

The controversy comes just weeks after the Wylie Independent School District in Texas (where school starts earlier) presented the same cartoon to eighth graders. During the uproar, Texas Gov. Gregg Abbott called for the teacher who assigned the lesson. The cartoon was removed and the district said they’d try to do better.

Somehow teachers in New York and Texas ended up with the exact same inflammatory cartoon? Hmmmm …

CATHOLIC LEFT: Complicit clergy busily earn their eternal millstones – “Were the Republicans to run a Catholic for president who supported, say, segregation, the bishops wouldn’t hesitate to condemn that figure and warn their congregations not to vote for him. But the bishops apply no such condemnation or warning to Joe Biden, who is a dissenter in favor of abortion rights and gay marriage. Even Biden’s officiating at gay marriages, an egregiously disobedient act for a Catholic, is met with silence from most bishops.” – George Neumayr

CATHOLIC RIGHT: The faithful have a powerful ally in Mary [5:00] – A while ago, I posted Father Altman’s powerful homily “You cannot be Catholic & a Democrat. Period.” His bishop has since threatened to impose “canonical penalties” for his video, even as public support for the priest has surged among rank-and-file Catholics around the country. To view Father Altman’s homilies, go to YouTube and put “Fr. Altman Homilies” in the search box.

CHINA: The Trump administration has moved block the import of products made with forced labor in detention camps in the Chinese province of Xinjiang.

More than 1 million Uygurs are currently held in concentration camps in the province, and numerous reports by human rights groups and governments have identified instances for forced labor, torture, and other abuses.

COVID-19: It should not be necessary to use false data to prove something that is actually true. So why have so many government agencies inflated the number of coronavirus deaths?

FAKE NEWS: The headline suggests that teaching children in person poses a deadly threat to teachers. The problem is that the teachers featured in the article did not get sick while teaching.

Four of them got sick before school opened. Another caught the virus at church. And one was working in a district that has not yet gone back to in-person learning.

Eight rioters were arrested, their bail set at one million dollars each. When word got out that Lancaster was not going to be a “catch and release” city like Portland, the protesters left town.

WALK AWAY: Today’s excerpt – “I was a lifelong Democrat because I care about people and our society. Now, I’m NOT a Democrat because I care about people and our society. As a Democrat I trusted the media, my teachers and Hollywood elitists that taught me that the Left had the moral high ground. I believed it all but they lost me when they demanded that I ostracize everyone that didn’t think like me. They lost me when they incorrectly changed the definitions of such words as ‘racist’ and ‘homophobe.’ They lost me with their hypocrisy. And eventually, they lost me with their policy.”

WILDFIRES: Arson is not caused by climate change – The National Weather Service says that 36,383 of the 41,599 wildfires that have ripped through the U.S. in 2020 were started by humans. That’s 87%. Some were due to carelessness; many were set on purpose. They’ve burned a total of 2,510,743 acres so far.

WILDFIRES: Politicization [15:17] – Tucker talks about the vile politicization of the incredible devastation.

FOREST MANAGEMENT: There’s a big, BIG difference between environmentalism and conservationism. The first is a left-wing, human-hating, activist position that rails against whatever issue is in their faces. The second seeks to find common sense solutions to balance the wants and needs of ALL who live on this planet.

The Trump administration has been trying to prevent the deadly wildfires that plague the West every year by putting in place forest management practices. Environmental activists keep blocking these efforts. They don’t care that a managed, healthy forest is one that doesn’t turn into an inferno that kills everything in its path.

Predictably, Democrats are blaming climate change for the current rash of horrific wild fires.

By that standard, Alveda’s uncle, Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., would not have been welcome either.

Craig knows firsthand that the worst thing you can do when faced with radical lawlessness is agree to negotiate. He grew up in Detroit, where he witnessed the 1967 riots, then he was an LAPD officer for the 1992 Rodney King riots. He also knows that BLM’s agenda doesn’t have widespread support from Detroiters.

The plaintiffs included hair salons, drive-in movie theaters, a farmer’s market vendor, a horse trainer and several Republican officeholders who sued as individuals.

Stickman, an appointee of President Donald Trump, wrote in his ruling that, while the governor’s efforts to slow the spread of the coronavirus “were undertaken with the good intention of addressing a public health emergency … even in an emergency, the authority of government is not unfettered.”

CALIFORNIA: The fire news is so awful. I can’t even.

CALIFORNIA: Then there’s this … “On Saturday night two Sheriff’s deputies including a 31-year-old mother of a six-year-old were ambushed and shot in their car in Los Angeles. Video shows a very short man or child stalking the sitting car and then shooting the two deputies several times in the head. When the deputies were brought to St. Francis Hospital in Los Angeles by ambulance Black Lives Matter activists swarmed the hospital and blocked the entry and screamed, ‘We hope the bitch dies!’”

COVID: Be cautious about COVID-19 vaccines – The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has a law called the Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness (PREP) Act, which provides immunity to vaccine companies if something (side effects, permanent injuries, deaths) goes wrong.

PENNSYLVANIA: Lancaster – When BLM rioters swarmed the police station and ignored eight orders to back off, police used CS gas, stun grenades, mace, and rubber billets to clear them out.

A Lancaster Black Lives Matter militant called for people to shoot police in retaliation.

The excuse for the Lancaster riot was the shooting of Ricardo Munoz. His sister called the police to report that he was aggressive and attempting to break into their mother’s home. When officers arrived, he lunged at one of them with a knife.

Munoz liked knives. In 2019, he stabbed four people. It’s not clear why he was walking the streets in 2020, free to menace his mom, sister, and police officers with a knife. But he’s not any more.

PRIVILEGE: Aka, bad manners – A black, female airline passenger was video’d refusing to move so a white the flight attendant could get past her. It made the internet, but probably not the MSM news, since the colors of the two didn’t support their narrative of a Raaacist America.

Rude woman who happened to be Black: “Don’t push me.”

Flight attendant who happened to be White: “I need to get to the back.”

Rude: “She put her hands on me! She wants to go to jail! You all see how she’s antagonizing me?

When a passenger who also happened to be White attempt to aid the flight attendant, she gets a face full of the rude woman’s mask-less ire.

Are you my boss? You are white privilege, you’re not my boss. Sit down! “You have white privilege and it’s not here, it’s over with, it’s 2020, wake up. You need to understand, you don’t run America no more sweetheart,” she spewed at the White woman, going on to explain how she once “slapped the shit” out of a “white bitch” for disrespecting her on a bus back when she was 14 (when it was not 2020). It’s unclear what happened after the clip ended.

Way back in the sixties, two Black girls tripped me as I was coming through a school door and laughed about it. I whirled around, fully intending to kick the witch, until I saw she had white tights on and I thought, “My dirty shoe will ruin her tights”, so I didn’t. Then my eyes scanned up and I realized it was probably a good thing I’m anal about dirt, because there were two of them and one of me, and they were Black … or did we call them African-American or People of Color that year. I get so confused.

I don’t know for a fact that the two twits tripped me for Walking while White, but it seems likely, since that was the year the armed Blacks took over the student union building at Cornell University in my home town of Ithaca, NY. I got off easy with just one minor incident. Some of my White classmates were beaten.

This was my first experience with racism. I only learned much later that there were parts of America that were overtly racist against Blacks in the ’60s. Liberal Ithaca was the opposite. In fact, when I was in elementary school, I had a playmate who apparently had brown skin. I didn’t pay attention. She was just Chloe to me. I overheard some woman say, “Isn’t that sweet? Black and White playing so nicely together.” And I distinctly remember thinking the woman was an idiot, because why wouldn’t we?

URUSHIOL: The oily substance produced by poison oak, Chinese lacquer tree, poison ivy, poison sumac and in parts of the mango tree that causes an itchy, red rash.

At the link is a video I don’t know how to embed here. In it, a skin specialist explains (and demonstrates) FOR FREE how to avoid getting a urushiol rash.

The oil doesn’t cause the rash instantly. It has to be on your skin for hours. So he key is to wash thoroughly with hot water, a grease cutting detergent AND a wash cloth without missing any spots, like between the fingers, on the underside of the arms, behind the ears, etc.

He demonstrates using black motor oil, which behaves like urushiol but is easier to see.

WALK AWAY: Today’s excerpt – “I don’t talk about President Trump to other people because I’m not supposed to be a Republican. I’m black! I’m a woman! I shared something with my family one day about us as Christians needing to show respect to the President because of his office. That’s what the Bible tells us to do.

Well that didn’t go over too well. I was told that I was being oppressed by the oppressor. I was told that there was nothing presidential about him so they would not respect him. I got quiet again. But I could feel the need to stop hiding. Everyone gets to talk about how great Obama was, how great Biden and Harris will be, and here I sat quietly not saying anything for fear of rejection.

And then today I stumbled upon this group and read some of the posts. Story after story, I realized there were more people out there like my husband and me!! And if they could share their stories, well so could I! So here I am!!”

GRAMMY NOTES: Our granddaughter was missing us so much on Grandparents Day that we attempted a Zoom chat. We couldn’t get the video working on our side. We got to see her do her new gymnastics moves, but she almost cried about not being able to see us, so we tried to take a Selfie. As you can tell, it was our first attempt. LOL

Today’s To Do List includes “Learn how to use Zoom.” I may also look into “How in blazes do you hold the stinking phone steady to take a decent Selfie?” I may need to reword that second one before putting it into my search engine.

ACLJ: The Chief Counsel for The American Center for Law and Justice is Jay Sekulow. He wrote this autobiographical article that is posted at Jews for Jesus. I thought it was very interesting.

ANTI-POLICE CULTURE: [5:50] – Former police officer Brandon Tatum has strong words for the rioters who tear up our communities, terrorize people, and support “scum of the earth” like rapist Jacob Blake.

CALIFORNIA: Sacramento – The “Let Us Worship” rally last week-end drew an estimated twelve thousand Californians to worship in defiance of Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom’s attempt to restrict religious services in his state.

NEW HAMPSHIRE: Clown politics – The current incumbent in the race for Cheshire County Sheriff is Sheriff Eli Rivera, a popular, five-term Democrat. He is considered such a shoe-in for another term that nobody else even bothered to put their name on the ballot … except for Aria DeMezzo, who just won the Republican nomination.

Aria is a transgender anarchist who ran on the simple, three-word campaign slogan, “F*** the police.” He is also a worshiper of Satan. Shockingly, neither the county nor state Republican parties have been offering much in the way of support for his candidacy.

Jazz Shaw at Hot Air notes, “Is there some lesson to take away from all of this? Perhaps. If you’re involved in politics at the local level, even in a casual way, you should probably make sure to put someone’s name on the ballot even if your party is vastly in the minority.”

NFL: I’m so glad I never cared about professional sports – On the eve of 9/11, these pampered princess (who are paid millions to play a game) ignored our first responders and continued with their disrespect for our nation and their support for rapist Jacob Blake.

According to a recent poll, 47% of those with a “very favorable” opinion of President Trump said they were “less interested” in the 2020 NFL season.

RACISM: Even as Black support for Trump increases way beyond anything ever seen before, Democrats continue to take the Black vote for granted.

CLICK [2:19] to hear TV’s dumbest lawyer Sunny Hostin call Black conservatives at the GOP convention “people props.

She actually brags about Biden having 83% support in the Black demographic. But Trump only got 8% of the Black vote in 2016.

Do the math, Sunny. That means Trump has doubled his support among the “people props.”

TRUMP: 2020 – We need him for four more years. And he needs a supportive Congress!

VOTING: 2020 – For absentee voting, a voter has to request a ballot and explain why they qualify for it. Absentee voting is allowed for voters who will be out of the county during the voting period, for disabled or ill voters, for voters who are age 65 or older, and for voters who are eligible, but incarcerated.

Democrats want to move to universal voting by mail, whereby all registered voters would automatically receive a ballot at their last known address. Since many areas are really sloppy about keeping their voter rolls up to date, this will inevitably lead to ballots going to people who registered, but have since died or moved.

Democrats lost their bid to require the Sate of Texas to expand mail-in voting to all eligible registered voters. They claimed that denying universal mail-in voting was age discrimination and alower court granted a preliminary ruling in their favor. But the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has just overturned it. But it looks like the County Clerk in Harris County (who has been in office all of 2 months) wants to go ahead with mail-in for his county … even though they’ve never done it before and there’s no guarantee they can handle the work load it will create.

I am relieved that New York State has merely offered the opportunity for people to request an absentee ballot on the basis of “sickness” due to COVID. So, it’s a one time only expansion of the absentee excuse list, NOT a permanent change to mass mailings.

WALK AWAY: Today’s excerpt is from another person whose alarm rang during the quarantine because she watched the Task Force briefings and compared them to what the Slime Stream Media said Trump said that Trump never said – “I started researching…..and researching. The more I read the further away from the democratic party I got. I was shocked. I couldn’t believe the extent to which the media and the dems will go to bring this man down. A man that gets shunned, bashed, threatened, and ridiculed his every waking second and does it all for FREE. What kind of greedy power hungry person does this?? None that I know of. I have never witnessed so much love for our country than what I have seen from our President.”

You MUST find a half our to watch this video! [29:59]

Steve Jalsevec wrote at LifeSite, that this “video by Dave Cullen, the Irish Internet blogger whom I consider to be one of the more well-informed, brilliant, and bluntly honest research analysts on the Wuhan virus crisis … is a half-hour blockbuster. You absolutely MUST take the time to watch it.

Cullen astutely takes viewers through a series of charts, text excerpts, and video statements by various notable persons related to the pandemic. In the process, he presents what I consider to be a very solid case for the title of this blog post [People behind COVID scam are ‘deeply cruel, evil, and psychotic people’]. …

Folks, if you continue to believe the lies that you are being fed by most of the media, liberal political leaders, and by your governments and health ministries, then we are heading for a never-in-history level of grief, loss of freedoms and tyranny all over the world that you cannot now even imagine.

Yes, it is that serious.”

Wow! A personal 9/11 message from God!

9/11: Never forget – “Saw a pretty amazing thing tonight at the gym. This firefighter was on the stair climber in full equipment, including his mask and oxygen tank. After about a half hour, I saw him finishing and taking his gear off so I went over to tell him how much I respected what he was doing. I figured he was training for a firefighter exam, but when I commented on it, he exclaimed, “110 floors! Took me 30 minutes, 10 seconds.” 110 floors… OMG. It’s September 11 and he had just climbed the equivalent of 110 floors like the firefighters did in the World Trade Center. Apparently, this is a tradition that many firefighters do to honor the 343 firefighters who lost their lives in the line of duty that day. It’s a helluva tribute!” (From Facebook)

DUBYA: [4:29] – An incredibly special and meaningful moment for those of us who lived through 9/11.

ABORTION: A pro-life group has obtained detailed logs from human tissue harvesters that graphically demonstrate what a Big Lie the “clump of cells” dodge is.

Examples of tissue identified and harvested for researchers from the remains of first trimester, aborted fetuses include: head, eyes, hands, legs, ribs, kidneys, hearts, lungs, and brain.

ALABAMA: Abortionist suspended – The Alabama State Board of Medical Examiners has suspended abortionist Leah Torres because she gave untrue or misleading answers on her application to practice medicine in Alabama.

  1. When asked if her “staff privileges at a hospital or health care facility had been revoked, suspended, curtailed, limited, or placed under conditions restricting your practice,” she said no. Lie.
  2. When asked if she had any medical malpractice claims, she said no. Lie.
  3. When asked if she had any history of mental health conditions, she said no. Lie.
  4. Torres also claimed to have worked as “a locum tenens physician between June 2018 and February 2019” when the Board found that she was actually unemployed.

The Board also accused Torres of committing unprofessional conduct, a charge that is also grounds for license denial.

BIDEN: Answer the damn question! – CLICK [:50] to hear Biden’s national press secretary, J.T. Ducklo, refuse to admit what has been painfully obvious to everyone who is paying attention. (Dontcha just love the irony of his last name?! Duck Low, dodge the question LOL)

CLICK [1:26] to see a montage of evidence that Joe can’t function even with a teleprompter.

CALIFORNIA: Los Angeles – A recording has hit the internet revealing the grossly political nature of California’s COVID rules.

In it, Los Angeles Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer says, “We don’t realistically anticipate that we would be moving either to Tier 2 [of California’s reopening plan] or to reopening K-12 schools at least … until after the election.”

IOW, keeping the state locked down has nothing to do with public safety and everything to do with preventing the Trump Economy from restarting in the No-Longer-Golden State as it has elsewhere.

CHINA: This 41 minute documentary tells the story of Joe and Hunter Biden’s questionable dealings with the ChiComs.

COVID-19: Big Pharma has no liability for vaccine injuries [8:15] – “I work in rural America, and I’ve seen three cases in eight months. And one of them was a false positive. You’re going to tell me everybody ought to be vaccinated over a virus that seems to be harming a very, very small proportion of Americans, most of whom were already extremely old or malnourished or extremely sick? That doesn’t hold water.”

DIVIDED AMERICA: [1:40] – Former NFL star Benjamin Watson co-produced and partially funded this film with his wife Kirsten. The movie will become available at SalemNOW on Sept. 17.

Watson says he wants “to unveil the truth about abortion, the laws, the history and where our country is headed. I believe in the sanctity of life, be it in the womb or on your deathbed. That’s my conviction. But with the film, I’ll engage those who disagree and hear their reasoning. The No. 1 thing I’m looking for is empathy on both sides.”

MEDAL OF HONOR: On Friday, President Trump presented the Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest award of valor, to Sgt. Maj. Thomas Payne, recognizing his conspicuous gallantry and selflessness in rescuing 75 hostages from execution by the Islamic State terror group.

MUELLER TEAM: Destruction of evidence – Newly released DOJ records show that multiple top members of Mueller’s investigative team claimed to have “accidentally” destroyed the memories on at least 15 of the phones used during the anti-Trump investigation.

By “accidentally” they mean that they first locked the phones into airplane mode, so they can never be turned on remotely. Then they inputted the wrong passwords again and again and again and again, until the permanent lock-out function engaged.

NOBEL PEACE PRIZE: Two nominations (so far) – A member of the Norwegian Parliament has nominated President Trump for helping broker a peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates.

A member of the Swedish Parliament has nominated the Trump administration and the two European nations for their “joint work for peace and economic development, through the cooperation agreement signed in the White House.”

The winner of the prize for 2021 will not be announced until October of next year. Since the committee gave Barack Obama the prize in 2009 for not being George Bush, I’d put Trump’s chances at slim to none. I’m guessing he doesn’t care, because his work speaks for itself.

OPERATION LEGEND: Chicago – The joint federal and local effort has resulted in 500 arrests and 124 federal charges in the Windy City.

The murder rate has declined 50%.

OREGON: A recent poll shows that Oregon voters are Not Happy.

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM: On Tuesday, Trump’s Justice Department filed a brief at the Indiana Supreme Court, defending the Constitutional right of an Indianapolis Catholic high school to uphold moral standards. The action supports the Archdiocese of Indianapolis, which is being sued by a teacher whose contract was terminated because of his public, same-sex marriage.

On Wednesday, the Education Department issued final rules to protect religious freedom in higher education. In addition to enforcing free speech and the rights of religious groups at public universities, the rule clarifies that a college with a clear religious mission is exempt from Title IX regulations, which is especially important to Catholic schools and colleges confronted by discrimination lawsuits because of the Catholic understanding of sexuality and marriage.

RHODE ISLAND: The University of Rhode Island recently announced plans to remove two 70-year-old murals depicting the events of World War II, because they accurately portray the participants in the events as having been predominantly White Males.

The issue came under the university’s eagle eyes after students complained that they don’t “feel comfortable sitting in that space” because the murals lacked “diversity.” Get that? URI is going to destroy a venerable piece of its own history to satisfy the snowflaky, fragile egos of people who are supposedly adults.

WALK AWAY: Today’s excerpt is one of my favorites to date – “When I was a ‘progressive,’ I was a snobby douche. I looked down on those dirty, illiterate flyover state types. I scoffed at those fat, NASCAR watching rednecks. I mocked people for their silly faith in things like God, family. sacrifice, hard work and perseverance. I thought anyone who flew the flag on their porch was a rube.

What I was really consumed with that whole time, was my own self image.

My need to feel better than you.

I had nothing of substance to offer, and secretly, I knew it. To compensate for that lack – that emptiness – I put on a shiny badge of unearned moral and intellectual superiority before I left my house every morning.

Eventually, that badge tarnished.

One day I looked at myself in the mirror and these words popped into my head: ‘Nah dude, it’s YOU who’s wrong.’”

WOKE: Employees across the Executive Branch have been required to attend “training” sessions where they are told that “virtually all White people contribute to racism” or where they are required to say that they “benefit from racism.

On Friday, President Trump directed agency heads to “cease and desist from using taxpayer dollars to fund these divisive, un-American propaganda training sessions.”

GRAMMY NOTES: Just sayin’. 🙂

BIDEN: He looks awful – CLICK [:20] to see Biden request the teleprompter be moved closer so he can read the answer to a canned question. It’s hard to believe he’s really going to show up at any of the scheduled debates.

CCC: Conservative Clergy of Color [3:10] – Four Four black pastors have formed a coalition to vigorously push back against the false and destructive narratives of the Black Lives Matter movement. Their message is resonating nationwide. The group now has more than 500 members.

The great irony here is that yes, there’s plenty of systemic racism in our country; it’s all wrapped up in the history of the Democratic Party.” – Aubrey Shines of Tampa, Washington Times Op Ed

COVID: More political lies – A group of alleged scientists claimed the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally was a “super spreader” event that infected 260,000 people and “generated public health costs of approximately $12.2 billion.”

Apparently, the so-called “study” was so bogus that no reputable journal would touch it, so it was posted at the website of an obscure, left-wing think tank, from whence the Trump-hating media hailed it as proof positive of something or other.

The Sturgis Motorcycle Rally has actually been linked with 364 new cases in 12 states. One person died.

Hey, intrepid investigative reporters … can we see the coronavirus infection stats for all the riots that have occurred over the past 100+ days in cities across the country? No? Oh golly. Why ever not …

DISNEY: More than a year after Disney’s CEO threatened to boycott the state of Georgia for passing a pro-life “heartbeat” bill, the company filmed a live-action remake of its 1998 animated film, Mulan.

Parts of the movie were filmed in China’s mountainous northwest Xinjiang province – the site of Beijing’s widespread human rights abuses against the Uighur people and other Muslim minorities – and the film’s credits thank eight agencies of China’s communist regime.

FIRST RESPONDERS: On August 26, a guy on a bicycle punched a 60-year-old woman in the face and knocked her down.

Seconds later, four firefighters emerged from the fire station and chased the thug down, pulled him off his bike, and subdued him until the police could arrest him.

One of the firefighters also got a punch in the face. The woman had a cut mouth, but declined medical attention.

The thug, Daniel Biggs (53), didn’t even know his victim. According to the NYPD, Biggs has 18 prior arrests, including for assault and robbery.

HAIRPOCRISY: CLICK [4:18] to hear Tucker revisit Pelosi’s blow out. “Because you told the truth about a politician violating her own rules, you have to go out of business.” “I’m actually afraid to go back.”

HOLOCAUST: This is what happens when hatred is cultivated and thugs gain control of a nation – Czeslawa Kwoka (14) was one of about 230,000 minors who were executed in Auschwitz-Birkenau.

The photographer later testified, “She was so young and so terrified. The girl didn’t understand why she was there and she couldn’t understand what was being said to her.

So this woman Kapo (a prisoner overseer) took a stick and beat her about the face. This German woman was just taking out her anger on the girl. Such a beautiful young girl, so innocent. She cried but she could do nothing.

Before the photograph was taken, the girl dried her tears and the blood from the cut on her lip. To tell you the truth, I felt as if I was being hit myself but I couldn’t interfere. It would have been fatal for me. You could never say anything.”

ILLINOIS: Chicago – This is 8 year old Dajore Wilson. She was shot in the back and killed Monday night in Chicago.

BLM is silent. Because black lives don’t actually matter to them.

MILITARY: President Trump’s oft-demonstrated love of U.S. troops was called into question just weeks before a presidential election by four anonymous cowards, and a publicity-hungry editor. Why would anyone believe this?

CLICK [2:30] to hear what Trump has actually said about our military.

NAVY: Masses will continue – Recently, news broke that the Navy was trying to save a few bucks by firing non-military priests who celebrate Mass on Navy bases where no military priest is stationed.

President Trump said it was never going to happen. And Rear Adm. Bette Bolivar confirmed that the Navy “will continue contracted religious ministry programs and services similar to what we’ve had in place previously.

Do you remember what it was like for Christians in the military under Obama? If not, I’ve provided some links below to refresh your memories.

NEW YORK: Manhattan – On Friday, Sept 4, 2020, 150 “mostly peaceful protesters” caused $100,000 in property damage on behalf of Black Lives Matter. They smashed windows, graffitied storefronts, and set fires.

Smoke grenades and two stun guns were recovered from the thug-rioters. Eight people were arrested and charged with felony rioting; some were additionally charged with weapons and burglary tool possession and misdemeanor graffiti.

The NYPD released the mug shots (above) of seven of the eight, all of them pasty-white, yacht-club-privileged brats.

The New York Post Editorial Board allowed as how “They and their ‘comrades’ who’ve kept the tragic farce going all these weeks in Portland, might as well be the Antifa Committee To Re-Elect the President.”

PROFESSIONAL SPORTS: Get woke, go broke – In the latest Gallup survey of how favorably Americans view 25 major industries, professional sports suffered the biggest drop in support. The 30% to 40% drop occurred across all demographics – gender, race, age, and politics.

Gallup does this poll annually, just asking those surveyed to give their general impression about the industries. Pollsters did not ask anything about protests or activism by pro athletes.

RAGE: Bob Woodward’s new book claims to be based on over a dozen taped interviews with the president. Among other things, it says Trump admitted to him that he had intentionally mislead the public in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Dr. Fauci says it never happened. CLICK [1:51] to hear Fox News’ John Roberts interview Dr. Fauci.

Later in the interview, Fauci also denies that he ever said some of the things Woodward attributes to him in the book.

Woodward is a real slug. In his Big Book of Lies, he claimed that President Trump told him that he doesn’t feel a responsibility “at all” to try to have a better understanding of the pain Black Americans feel. Here is what actually transpired.

Do you have any sense that that privilege has isolated and put you in a cave to a certain extent as it put me and I think lots of white privileged people in a cave and that we have to work our way out of it to understand the anger and the pain particularly Black people feel in this country. Do you,” Woodward started to ask before Trump cut him off.

No. You really drank the Kool-Aid, didn’t you? Just listen to you. Wow. No, I don’t feel that at all,” the president responded.

SHY VOTERS: I previously reported on a study that found 9% of likely voters were reluctant to say who they were planning to vote for and that the breakdown was 3% Biden voters vs. 6% Trump voters.

This netted a potential 3% hidden poll bump for Trump over Biden. But Rasmussen found this hidden poll bump to be much larger.

Rasmussen asked, “How likely are you to let others know how you intend to vote?” during their regular Presidential Approval polling. Then they broke down the shy voters in two ways. One data set dropped out the middle (approve, disapprove) and compared shy voters among the Strongly Approve and Strongly Disapprove respondents. The other data set compared shy voters by party affiliation.

Strongly Approve (17%) vs. Strongly Disapprove (8%) netted a whopping 9% presumptive bump for Trump, while Republican (16%) vs. Democrat (12%) netted a much more modest 4% bump.

However, the high numbers of Democrats joining Walk Away and BLEXIT, plus the much higher numbers of Blacks and Hispanics claiming they plan to vote for Trump suggests a lot of Democrats are defecting and are actually even more unlikely than Republicans to tell others they’re voting for Trump.

Point being … Biden vs. Trump polls inaccurately favor Biden by at least 3% and maybe by as much as 9%.

WALK AWAY: Civil Rights attorney Leo Terrell was a prominent Democrat who now supports Donald Trump. He cites two major reasons. “One, Joe Biden made the assumption that if you’re not black, that if you’re black you have to vote Democrat. I find that insulting and offensive to every African American because we don’t vote as one group. Secondly, defunding the police is absolutely ridiculous. Ninety-eight percent of all police officers are good. Get rid of two percent but not the entire police force.

GRAMMY NOTES: Please pray for Dearest. He saw his cardiologist this week. His wonky valve is kaput. We’re looking at heart surgery as soon as possible. Dunno yet if it can be done with the “minimally invasive” method or if they’re going to have to crack his chest.

2A: Gun sales have been breaking historical records – During the past three months, nearly 12% of Democrats and almost 19% of Republicans bought a gun.

The trend was particularly strong in the 18–29 age group (more than 22%), black people (21%), union members (nearly 32%), urbanites (more than 19%), and those earning more than $200,000 (19%).

AUSTRALIA: On Tuesday, the legislature of the Australian state of Queensland passed a law requiring priests to violate the seal of confession to report known or suspected child sex abuse. Failure to do so will be punished with three years in prison.

Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia, and the Australian Capital Territory have also adopted laws forcing priests to violate the confessional seal, while New South Wales and Western Australia have upheld it.

The seal of confession is sacred. Period. Violating it is a mortal sin which incurs the penalty of “automatic excommunication reserved to the Apostolic See.”

A mortal sin constitutes a rejection of salvation and can lead to damnation if a person does not repent before death.

Automatic excommunication reserved to the Apostolic See” means absolution cannot be granted except by the Pope, the bishop of the place, or priests authorized by them.

IOW, three years in prison is peanuts.

By Canon Law, a priest may not reveal the contents of a confession either directly, by repeating the substance of what has been said, or indirectly, by some sign, suggestion, or action. A priest may not break the seal to save his own life, to protect his good name, to refute a false accusation, to save the life of another, to aid the course of justice (like reporting a crime), or to avert a public calamity.

If a priest needs guidance from a more experienced confessor to deal with a difficult case of conscience, he first must ask the permission of the penitent to discuss the matter. Even in this case, the priest must keep the identity of the person secret.

Even if the penitent himself wishes to discuss the content of a confession later, outside the confessional, the penitent must give the priest formal permission to do so.

BLACK LIVES (DON’T) MATTER: That sign had it right to begin with. While abortion harms families of every race and culture, it disproportionately harms the Black community.

Less than 13% of the U.S. population self-identifies as Black or African-American, yet their women have 36% of the abortions.

In New York City, more Black babies are aborted than are born alive annually.

CALIFORNIA: Hollywood makes the Oscars even more “woke” and even less meaningful – In order for any film to be nominated for Best Picture in the year 2024, at least one of the lead actors or significant supporting actors will have to be from an underrepresented racial or ethnic group.

DEATH OF A NATION: We watched Dinesh D’Souza’s Death of a Nation the other night. He talks about how the Chicago mobs figured out they could commit crimes legally if they just took over the government.

Barack and Michelle Obama were an integral part of the Chicago government mob. Their grotesque abuses of power while in the White House came as no surprise to anyone who was paying attention.

DEBATES: 2020 – They’re on.

DEFUND THE POLICE: This is worth watching! – CLICK [7:47] to hear Ben Shapiro interview Brandon Tatum, a Black man and former police officer, SWAT officer and instructor, talking about the Left’s claim that police are systemically racist. “They used the amount of force necessary.”

ENVIRONMENT: On Tuesday, President Trump extended the moratorium on offshore drilling near the coasts of Florida, South Carolina, and Georgia.

He said his goal has been to safeguard the environment without sacrificing the economy. The left’s agenda isn’t about protecting the environment, it’s about punishing America. Instead of focusing on radical ideology, my administration is focusing on delivering real results, and that’s what we have.”

Other Trump initiatives include $100 million to fight toxic algae to safeguard coastal areas; more than $500 million to fix the Herbert Hoover Dike around the waters of Florida’s Lake Okeechobee; and increasing funding for Everglades restoration by 55%.

FLORIDA: 2020 – A recent NBC Poll shows the presidential ticket tied at Biden (48%) vs. Trump (48%).

Trump leads by four among Latino voters – Biden (46%) Trump (52%). In 2016, he lost the Latino vote bigly – Clinton (62%) vs. Trump (35%).

Biden leads by one among Senior voters – Biden (49%) vs. Trump (48%). In 2016, Trump won the Senior vote bigly – Clinton (40%) vs. Trump (57%).

GEORGIA: Voter fraud – As many as 1,000 people voted twice in the state’s primary, casting absentee ballots, then voting in person on Election Day.

Every double voter will be investigated thoroughly. A double voter knows exactly what they’re doing, diluting the votes of each and every voter that follows the law,” Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said. “Those that make the choice to game the system are breaking the law. And as secretary of state, I will not tolerate it. No one gets to vote twice. Everyone gets one vote.”

The fraud was not noticed in time to affect the totals. It is not clear if the cheaters impacted any of the races. Voter fraud is a felony.
