"It’s not so much that Democrats are rooting for riots and looting, they just always support the side that burns down the buildings and assaults the cops while they also ferociously attack any civilian who tries to stand up for his life and property

Maybe it’s a coincidence"

JOURNALISTIC MALPRACTICE ON THE RIOTS

“Nothing to see here! Just a bunch of “people” “gathered around a window”! The woman in the foreground with her arms full of clothes? She must have brought them from home.

The saddest thing about the Democratic Party press’s pathetic evasions is “journalists'” unwillingness to tell the real story of the lives that have been devastated by Democrat-allied, Democrat-supported rioters. This Facebook post by a man whose family’s Asian restaurant was destroyed by Black Lives Matter rioters is–as he says–heartbreaking:...”

“There is a compelling story here, but it is not one that liberal media, focused on November’s election, want to tell.”

Fifty-seven years ago today MLK gave his transformative “I Have a Dream” speech. MLK through peaceful protest educated a country. We have more to do to achieve the ideals of our founders. We are not perfect but the American ideals are. Thank you to MLK for changing the world.

Let the woman speak....for now.

THOUGHTS FROM THE AMMO LINE

“Isn’t it fascinating with all the “settled science” denying that there is even such a thing as two biological sexes that when a transgendered person is MISTAKEN for the other sex that all hell breaks loose? Why? What’s the big deal if there’s no such thing as gender?

Remember the giant lumbering loon in eye makeup in the hardware store who kicked over displays and attacked the poor hapless young clerk with obscenities because he failed to call him “Ma’am”? Way to prove your feminine bona fides, Jasper! A mislabeled transgendered man from Georgia would have sweetly said, “Bless your heart, honey, but I am a lady.”

Billionaire author, J.K. Rowling, herself a dedicated left-wing feminist, has run into the Twitter buzzsaw for stating that transgenders are encroaching upon and bent on eliminating women. What are transgender men, but men proving that they are better than women at everything, including at being women? Good for her for not caving to The Mob. Refreshing! It’s all about control. If the Stalinists in the Democratic Party can make you say that we need tampons in the men’s room, and free abortion for men, they can make you raise your fist for BLM in a restaurant. They can make you say or do anything. Including voting for Joe Biden.”

Trump collected more cash and had more viewers than creepy grampa joe -

A senior Trump campaign official told Fox News that the campaign, the RNC, and Trump Victory and Trump MAGAC (Make America Great Again Committee) raised $76 million between the kick-off to the convention Monday and President Trump’s formal nomination acceptance Thursday night.

The Trump campaign’s efforts exceeded those of the Biden campaign.

Last week, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s campaign announced that it, the Democratic National Committee, and their joint fundraising committees brought in $70 million in fundraising during the 4-day Democratic convention. The Biden campaign held numerous grassroots and high-dollar fundraising events throughout the week.

Meanwhile, the Republican National Convention brought in 147.9 million total views across television and online between Monday and the end of Thursday night's programming, according to a senior campaign official.

The DNC convention, as Fox News previously reported, had 122 million total viewers through television and online.

The president is the only one in DC that cares about American workers -

President Trump won a “right-wing New Deal victory” for American workers with the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) by stopping an outsourcing scheme as Democrats ignored the issue, a far-left socialist magazine admits.

In July, U.S. Tech Workers, former Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and TVA union workers blew the whistle on the federally-owned corporation’s contracts with firms Capgemini, Accenture, and CGI to force about 200 American workers out of their jobs and make them train their foreign H-1B visa replacements.

In the middle of the American workers’ training their H-1B replacements, Trump stepped in to stop the outsourcing scheme, required TVA to rehire all the Americans they had outsourced, fired TVA chairman Skip Thompson, and pressured the corporation to review TVA CEO Jeff Lyash’s $8 million salary.

The self-described “socialist” magazine Jacobin admitted in a piece titled “How Trump Got His Right-Wing New Deal Victory” that the president filled the void for saving the jobs of American workers where Democrats failed to even acknowledge the issue.

Surveys and poll taken this year show the public is overwhelmingly on Trump’s side of the labor issue as majorities continue to oppose corporation’s outsourcing of American jobs to imported foreign workers.

While tens of millions of Americans remain jobless and underemployed, nearly 60 percent of American adults told Ipsos pollsters in July that they want to halt foreign visa worker programs — such as the H-1B visa — so that Americans are prioritized for jobs. In June, a majority of Americans, including black Americans, said there is no labor shortage.

Jim Gaffigan talks trump....

"Look Trumpers I get it. As a kid I was a cubs fan and I know you stick by your team no matter what but he's a traitor and a con man who doesn't care about you. Deep down you know it. I'm sure you enjoy pissing people off but you know Trump is a liar and a criminal. By the way you can't be against Cancel Culture and tell people to stay out of politics. You know that time you did a job and didn't get paid? That's trump and you know it.. if trump gets elected, the economy will never come back. Biden is Catholic in name only? Compared to who? How many abortions did trump pay for? How many women has he raped? How many times did pull the shit he did in Ukraine. Wake up. He's a crook and a con man. Remember everything Trump accuses the Democrats of he's guilt of. Dont let the socialist name calling distract you from the fact he is a fascist who has no belief in law. You know Trump just creates enemies. You know you can't trust him. You know he been incompetent during this crisis. You know all those people didn't need to die. Trump talks about the Space Program and you can't safely go to a movie. Wake up. Trump budding up with dictators is RADICAL. Trump having interfering with the justice department is RADICAL. Trump pandering to the police and army (I gave 3 raises) is RADICAL. I dont give a fuck if anyone thinks this is virtue signaling or whatever. We need to wake up. We need to call trump the con man and thief that he is. - If you want to sound crazy please tell me about THE DEEP STATE.
- To sound stupid please be against CANCEL CULTURE but then accuse anyone with an opinion of Virtue signaling.
- Trump Derangement Syndrome is meant to distract from the con of Don"


I especially like that last sentence...

Looks like he had good reasons to stay in the basement -

Let’s recall that heading into the Democrat primary season of 2019, former Vice President Biden was the presumed nominee. Indeed, in May of 2019, a Brookings Institute headline read: “Why is Joe Biden running away with the Democratic presidential nomination?” It didn’t take long after that, however, for Biden to falter.

Joe Biden did poorly in the Democrat debates and on the campaign trail and soon Sen. Elizabeth Warren was leading in the polls. She fell and then Democrats looked to former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. He faltered and then Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., looked like he would take the nomination in February of 2020.

The Democrats then did something unprecedented. They panicked and brokered the nomination in broad daylight, by convincing candidates to drop out of the race, to stop Bernie Sanders from becoming the nominee. Then they resuscitated Biden’s dying candidacy and made him the party nominee.

If we fast forward to today, the Democrats are panicking again, and their panic started right after the end of the Democrat Convention.

Their convention failed to deliver. Indeed, it looks like their convention scared away Independents. In a poll taken by CBS/YouGov, after the Democrat Convention, President Trump raced to a 10% lead among Independents.

If a CBS poll gives Trump that big of a lead, even before the Republican Convention started, the Democrat Party leaders have good reason to panic.

Biden’s polling troubles don’t end there, however.

The latest Rasmussen poll is consistent with the CBS poll.

Can any of our leftwingers give a single piece of evidence that Trump is "budding up" with Putin?

Good for him! -

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's campaign has hired a Kentucky teenager known for his viral encounter with a Native American man at the Lincoln Memorial last year.

Nick Sandmann landed a paid position as grassroots director for McConnell's reelection effort in Kentucky, the senator's campaign said Friday. Sandmann started his new role this month, and McConnell campaign manager Kevin Golden said they're “excited" to have him on board.

(*) Cross 3:43 - My, what a lot of self-evident factoids! You Know...
Actually, I don't know any of that.
I don't.
And the comparison with Biden who claims to be Catholic. I'm trying to remember Trump claiming to be a devotee and faithful follower of any religion.
Did he?
"Trump talks about the Space Program and you can't safely go to a movie."
This one is priceless - does he mean 'safely' as in not getting mugged?
Or as in not getting CV19?
Trump is supposed to stop a world-wide pandemic?
No wonder they want you to stop making fun of them for TDS.
Trump's achievements and failures stand apart from the many millions of pathetic light thinkers that have TDS.
Maybe * Cross can try again with a post with something a bit more substantial than 'you know'.

So why do it?-

Democratic vice presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris said Friday “nobody’s going to be punished” if she and running mate Joe Biden implement the nationwide mask mandate they have called for during the coronavirus pandemic

DB - 5:54 - This from a former AG. So a 'decree' is really just a style suggestion. Like 'no white attire after Labor Day'.
But only if Biden's science advisors give him the order.
If Biden does win, this will be a most interesting time for the legal profession.

re: “The lamestream is still providing scant, if any coverage, of the destructive and murderous riots in our cities, instead characterizing them as peaceful protests by “frustrated” young people. This has the effect of making their audiences sound somewhere between silly and foolishly naïve when they enter into conversations about current events.”—Dr. Rebane

Oh my, where to begin? I glanced at the comments in the Union’s letters and columns a few days ago and became ill. No exaggeration. Sickened. Such incomprehensible ignorance revealed, spouting off Democrat Fakenews falsehoods one after another so confidently...so matter of factly. Where does one begin? Although I personally never liked the term ‘sheeple’ for some reason, the term applies. I did reach into my saddened soul and had empathy for them. How would they know the truth or even a partial ‘other side of the story’ if they have never been presented with facts nor seen or heard of another side? How do you describe ice cream if they have never tasted? What chance do they have of comprehension...nay, apprehension...to grapple with the truth? Facts, not innuendo? To become informed. How do you separate the wheat from the chaff if all you are given is chaff? They know not so much and what they know is wrong.

Well, let’s start with the scant coverage of the riots and hooligan activity doing on currently, shall we?

EMOTIONAL IN MINNEAPOLIS
The Star Tribune seems to have gotten the memo from CNN on the riots and looting in Kenosha. In its lead editorial yesterday, the paper summed up the festivities this way: “Another Black man is shot by police — this time in Kenosha, Wis. Another night of mostly peaceful protesting devolves into violent damage to property, buildings and vehicles.”

I can hardly wait to see if the editors pull off a comparable take on the scene a few blocks over from their offices in downtown Minneapolis. So far, however, they are resting on their right to remain silent. Like Jack Benny in the old joke, they are thinking about it.

TRIGGER WARNING FOR THE TDS SET That means you oh great pony tail of ignorance -

The Democracy Institute/Sunday Express Poll shows that President Trump leads Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden 48 percent to 45 percent in the national popular vote, a one point bump from the two point lead the same poll found the president had in its survey released at the beginning of August. The president now also leads Biden by seven points in key battleground states, a two point bump from the five point lead he had in the same survey.

Here's a great piece by a feller who did it...
https://nypost.com/2020/08/29/political-insider-explains-voter-fraud-with-mail-in-ballots/

The important piece to remember is the ballots are anonymous, but the envelope isn't. So the trick is to take the signed envelope, steam it open, and then replace the ballot with one you made with a photocopier.

The trick is to get envelopes that are signed... like with ballot harvesting. Or from friendlies with situational ethics working at the post office.

Ballot harvesting stinks. Just say no.
