I agree with the analysis but differ a bit on the conclusion. The GOP, resurgent under Trump, doesn’t deserve to die. The few remaining GOP RINO’s like Murkowski, Collins and especially Romney, need to be primaried and voted out.
This is the Democrat’s America. Devastating.
These black men speak the TRUTH!
A very powerful message: “I am not oppressed! I am a proud black man! You are being lied to!”
Black conservatism is the new punk rock! I love it!!
Joe Biden basically admitted that much in his “prepared remarks” today, stating “you think Donald Trump can stop the violence?” or something of the sort. So he is basically saying “vote for me or else”. That’s what Antifa, the Bernie Bros and BLM have been saying for months.
So the Marxist Democrat party could not get rid of Trump after trying all of the following: recall, Russia collusion, impeachment, Ukraine conspiracy, and “racism”. So they turn to their shock troops to tear cities apart and threaten the American people with violence. What do you think will happen if, God forbid Biden wins this fall and they take Congress? You think giving a thug what he wants will make them stop? What are we going to do about it?
Like I have said many times, leftist politics destroys everything and now it has come for sports. BigTen commish Kevin Warren is apparently anti-Trump, and it is no secret a number of school presidents lean left. They may have thought this was a wedge issue to drive voters away from Trump but I suspect it will backfire. Not helping their case is their complete lack of transparency.
And the Dems are still at it at this week’s DNC. Can’t wait for this movie to come out.
BLM strangely silent. I guess they approve.
It was conventional wisdom that a radical socialist like Bernie Sanders could not have possibly won the 2020 presidential election and was therefore tanked by the Democrat establishment. Sadly, like a monster that is back from the grave, Bernie Sanders and his radical Marxist kin AOC, Talib and the like have apparently taken over Joe Biden’s barely functioning mind. It is clear at this point that Biden’s cognitive function is declining rapidly and he has now become the empty vessel for The Democrat’s Marxist agenda. The same Democrat establishment must now believe that what would not sell a mere five months ago in terms of a radical Marxist agenda now will with Trump damaged from Covid, the lock downs, and large-scale unrest. We’ll see, but if you think Obama’s “fundamental transformation” was bad, wait till you see what the Marxists have in store. Here is a partial list:
Instant or accelerated citizenship for millions of illegals, giving the Dems a rock solid majority for decades.
The green new deal that will wreck our economy.
Wealth and possible property confiscation.
“Fair housing” zoning forcing all but the “elites” into cramped unsafe cities and “affordable housing” in once desirable subdivisions.
Government mandated school curriculum.
An end to school choice.
Religious liberty under attack – only positive recent court decisions can fight this.
Speech codes – goodbye first amendment.
Gun control – goodbye second amendment.
Reduced policing and more criminals on the streets leading to soaring crime.
A return to male bashing Title IX witch-hunts.
This is probably just a partial list. That the left-wing media is championing this trash is despicable. They want to turn the US into Venezuela. It is the Marxist’s Utopia and they think this is their best shot to get it, so don’t kid yourself. This is the platform of the radical left Democrat Party. If any or all of this scares you, you must vote for Trump and all Republicans.
Welp, go away for a week and the country completely goes to shit. As if the Covid lockdowns were not bad enough, now we have full-blown rioting around much of the country to deal with.
I am going to make a few comments and then link to some excellent articles. I believe George Floyd was murdered, full stop. Terrible. The cop(s) who did it will serve hard time. Peaceful protest are welcomed…that should be the end of it. Instead the country is in flames. But Floyd’s killing is not the primary reason: we have similar situations every few years with nothing close to this reaction. Some of the killings are legitimate: think Michael Brown who was proven to have viciously attacked a cop. Others were not: think Freddie Grey in Baltimore. So ask yourself: what is different this time? I will tell you: the Covid lockdowns that forced hundreds of millions to shelter in place for months with no direction and often little hope, and threw 30-40 million people out of work almost overnight, many of them blacks. The black unemployment rate was the lowest in history before the lockdown at something like 6%, and now some people are saying it is 50%! Now I think that is an exaggeration, but even 30% is appalling. So there it is, thanks mainly to the political left and the Democrat party. Even some liberals have connected the dots. I cannot prove this, but neither can it be disproved. And corrupt leftist mayors and governors running the cities and states that are primarily to blame know they are guilty. But no, it’s racist cops hunting black men. The far-left media is guilty as well, openly cheering on the destruction until it comes to their neighborhood, as if it is the last chance to get Trump and bring in socialism. And far-left cities and states that have been way too soft on crime for years (think the home of Antifa, Portland) and are hopelessly corrupt have set the stage for mass unrest. So Floyd’s killing is not the primary cause: years of inner city neglect and corruption, weak, feckless leftist politicians, far-left media cheerleading and finally a draconian nationwide shutdown set the stage for a calamity. George Floyd’s killing was simply the match that lit a very large pile of tinder.
Fact: 9-10 unarmed blacks are killed by cops annually, compared to 19-20 whites. A cop is 18.5% more likely to die at the hands of a black criminal. Compare the 200+ total annual killings of blacks by cops to the 7000+ black-on-black murders annually. These are all facts. Privilege exists, white privilege is a lie. Privilege is not based on race. Asians do far better than whites as a whole by many metrics: is there Asian privilege? Well, let me correct that. People of a certain color are currently allowed to loot, rob, vandalize and assault with impunity in certain cities: does that sound like “privilege”? Racism exists but most people are not racist and nobody is born that way. Institutional racism is a lie. Many of these cities are run mainly by blacks…are they racist against their own people? Black lives only matter when a cop kills a black man. It does not apply to black cops killed (which is not a rarity) nor the roughly 300,000 abortions of black babies annually. The movement is not about equity, it is about intimidation and power. What is obvious as well is that white Antifa thugs are behind a lot of the mayhem…and in some neighborhoods the peace-loving law-abiding blacks are fighting back. This is a violent revolt, not a race protest. Minneapolis and NYC are in a race to see which city can commit suicide faster.
Well, here are the articles.

Five studies show the effectiveness of the drug against Covid 19 when used early in outpatient applications. This matches what I have heard from doctors in the field who have treated Covid patients. When used EARLY it is highly effective. But – Orange Man Bad! The left would literally rather have people die than have Trump be right. You wont see this in the far-left lamestream media.
