“Which of these things is not like the others?”

“Which of these things just doesn’t belong?”

“Can you tell which thing is not like the others, by the time I finish my song?”

I’m sorry, because this is actually a trick question.

The correct answer is “no one on the list doesn’t belong!”

They all belong, because they’re all treasonous vermin!

And they all had many accessories along the way as well.

Not mention the lying, complicit, fake news, liberal propaganda, mainstream media.   

Actually, a case could be made that Benedict Arnold “doesn’t belong,” because he was the only one who wasn’t involved in spying on the Trump campaign, spying on President Trump while in office, and attempting to undermine and overthrow a duly elected president.

They have disgraced their names, their families, and their country forever.

Shame on them all.

If there is any justice, they should all be brought to justice.

The CENSORING of America!

In recent days, we have seen Facebook and Twitter censoring articles critical of presidential candidate, Joe Biden, and his son, Hunter.

They claim these articles are “unverified,” and therefore should not be spread on social media.

Oh…, do you mean like the unverified Russian collusion reports which were shoved down our throats for over two years?!

For over two years…, night and day!!!

Seriously?!

And the people attempting to spread these reports are having their accounts censored, locked, blocked, or shutdown altogether!

Is this really happening in America?!

I feel like we are experiencing censorship you could expect to experience in Communist Russia or Communist China…, not in The United States of America. 

 I don’t recall Facebook and Twitter censoring ANY anti-Trump, Russian hoax, anonymous source, reports.

Facebook, Twitter, and the mainstream media have shown their hands here.

They are all undeniably co-conspirators and propaganda allies of the democrat party.

Undeniably and unabashedly.

Without question.

In a related article, according to Brian Flood of Fox News, “Ex-Facebook honcho Tim Kendall says Big Tech is a ‘threat to democracy,’ and calls for social media reform.”

‘“Media Angle’ is a column [for Fox News] offering perspectives on the media landscape from the newsmakers themselves.

‘“Moment’ CEO Tim Kendall is among the stars of the wildly popular Netflix documentary ‘The Social Dilemma,’ which tackles the negative impact social media and Big Tech can have on people — and the former Facebook executive feels Big Tech is a threat to democracy that could eventually lead to a civil war in America.” 

‘“Extreme outcomes are the logical end conclusion if there is no action on social media reform during the increasing destabilization of civil society,’ Kendall told Fox News.”

“The Social Dilemma” features several Silicon Valley insiders explaining the dark side of social media, with everyone from the co-inventor of Facebook’s ‘like’ button to high-powered executives weighing in.” 

“Kendall, who is a central figure in the film, was once the director of monetization at Facebook but now runs ‘Moment,’ a company dedicated to ‘fighting to reimagine the tech industry as one built for its users.’”

“MA: Big tech is called a ‘global assault on democracy’ in the film, and you say you’re concerned it could lead to a civil war. Why are these horrifying claims realistic?”  

“Kendall: The attention-based business model of social media companies is a threat to democracy. We as users are attracted to content that entertains us and reinforces our views. ‘Big Social,’ as I call it, knows this and presents information that will keep us coming back to their platforms. These corporate practices encourage online tribalism that exacerbates the societal division we see today amid unprecedented economic, climate, and public health turmoil.”

“I truly believe things will not get better until tech companies move away from creating exploitative products that drive conflict over conversation, division over unity, and misinformation over truth. Extreme outcomes are the logical end conclusion if there is no action on social media reform during the increasing destabilization of civil society.”  

“MA: A recent report showed the overwhelming majority of campaign contributions from employees at big tech firms went to Democratic candidates. Do conservatives have even more to fear than liberals and progressives?” 

I can answer that one! 

The real answer is a resounding “YES!”

“Kendall: We cannot allow the conversation around misinformation and social media addiction to become a partisan issue. Big Social does not care what content you are consuming, where you live, or what you believe so long as you are giving away your time to their platforms and helping drive up their advertising revenues.”

What do you mean, “We cannot allow the conversation around misinformation and social media addiction to become a partisan issue?”

It IS most definitely a “partisan issue.”

It IS an attack on conservatives by the liberals who control and run these social media companies. 

And “Big Social” absolutely does care about what “content you are consuming,” and they are intent on making sure they steer you on the “enlightened” and the “approved” liberal path.

“MA: What needs to happen to alleviate your concerns about social media’s impact on modern society?”   

“Kendall: I think there are three things that need to change. First, until the financial incentives are removed these companies will continue to operate by creating social media addicts of its users. Second, we need better regulation—no industry, including tech, should be in the position to regulate themselves. Third, we need innovation to help people take back their lives from their devices. This is in part why I started my company, ‘Moment,’ to develop tools that give control back to individuals.”

Okay…, so one and three won’t be happening anytime soon.

I’m not normally a big fan of government regulations, but in this case, we really have no other options. 

Discrimination calls for regulation!!!

‘“The Social Dilemma’ is now streaming on Netflix.”

Bias in the mainstream media?

If there was ever any question about bias in the mainstream media, the USA Today newspaper erased all doubt.  

According to Fox News, “USA Today apparently forgot about Vice President Mike Pence Wednesday night, when the newspaper tweeted a poll asking who won the vice presidential debate and listed only ‘Kamala Harris,’ ‘Joe Biden,’ ‘the pesky fly’ and ‘I didn’t watch’ as options.”

How you omit one of the two only participants in the debate is inexcusable, and demonstrates either USA Today’s complete incompetence, or their complete bias.

I’m going with “their complete bias,” although I feel we should not sell their incompetence short.

“The mistaken tweet was posted shortly after the end of the debate, which was moderated by USA Today’s Washington bureau chief Susan Page.”

This is the same Susan Page who repeatedly tried to cut Vice President Pence’s response times short, but then finding out that Kamala Harris ended up with over four and a half minutes more speaking time than Vice President Pence.

Funny who that works out, isn’t it?  

“Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, tweeted a image of the now-deleted poll and asked, ‘Think the media has an agenda? Mike Pence isn’t even listed as an option on their “poll.”’”

“The paper then replaced the initial poll with another version that listed Pence as an option instead of Biden.”

“USA Today then made light of the gaffe by tweeting a third poll asking, ‘Is this a corrected poll because USA TODAY messed up the first one?’”

Oh yeah, just a completely understandable “gaffe” on their part.

“USA Today did not immediately respond to a request for comment.”

Oh really?!

That’s odd!

“The ‘pesky fly’ option refers to the now-viral insect that landed on [Vice President] Pence’s head and stayed there for more than two minutes late in the proceedings.”

The choice is really quite simple.

Our presidential election is only a few weeks away. 

We have the choice between the democrat/liberal, Joe Biden, and the republican/conservative, Donald Trump.

Yes, we have to vote for one of these two men, but we also need to consider what these two men represent.

Let’s review what you apparently support by voting for either the democrat/liberal, Joe Biden, or the republican/conservative, Donald Trump.

Democrats/liberals believe it is a woman’s right to abort a baby right up to the moment before birth.

Republicans/conservatives believe all babies have a right to be born and live. 

Democrats/liberals support defunding police departments.  All criminals are fans of this!

Republicans/conservatives believe if anything, police department support needs to be increased.

Democrats/liberals support taking guns away from law abiding citizens. Again, all criminals are fans of this!

Republicans/conservatives believe law abiding citizens have the right to protect themselves and bear arms, as guaranteed in The Constitution.

Democrats/liberals believe anyone from anywhere should be able to freely walk right into our country whenever they feel like it.  The drug cartels and human traffickers love this.

Republicans/conservatives believe our borders should be secure, limiting who can and who can’t come in at any given time, while affording us an orderly and managed legal immigration process.

Democrats/liberals believe in tearing down monuments to our history as a country.

Republicans/conservatives believe in honoring and learning from our history, not trying to erase it.

Democrats/liberals support “sanctuary” cities and states, where illegal immigrants can live without fear of being taken into Federal custody and charged with crimes or be deported.

Republicans/conservatives believe illegal immigrants are “illegal” and are here illegally, and should be treated as such. Republicans/conservatives also believe that the concerns of legal citizens should come before those of illegal immigrants.  

Democrats/liberals support raising taxes across the board.  They claim working class people won’t be affected, but we all know higher tax rates for companies and corporations are just passed down to us.

Republicans/conservatives support the continued reduction of taxes across the board.

Democrats/liberals immediately take money from the military at their earliest opportunity, weakening our nation’s defense.

Republicans/conservatives believe a strong military is an absolute necessity in today’s global environment.  The defense of our country is also the federal government’s primary responsibility per The Constitution.

…   

Democrats/liberals love implementing a seemingly never-ending list of federal regulations designed to suffocate construction, business operations, and whatever else they can think of to stifle our civil liberties.

Republicans/conservatives believe some regulations are necessary, but that less regulation is preferable in order promote businesses and maintain a strong economy.  

… 

Democrats/liberals feel it is a good idea to allow anyone living in our country to vote, regardless of whether they are here legally or not, and regardless of whether the voter has any proper ID to prove who they are.  

Republicans/conservatives believe only legal citizens should be allowed to vote, and that an ID should be required.

Democrats/liberals believe that government should be the “end all be all” for anyone living in America.

Republicans/conservatives believe that government is a “necessary evil,” and that most things are done more efficiently and cheaper by the private sector.

Democrats/liberals believe in a person’s dependence on government, and that having some form of a socialist government is more desirable that our capitalist system, even though no socialist government in the past can be pointed to as a successful government.  

Republicans/conservatives believe in our capitalist way of doing things, providing for ourselves as a rule, and system which allows individuals to rise to any level of success, dependent on the individuals’ desire to attain it.

 … 

Democrats/liberals believe in free speech as long as your speech agrees with their beliefs, if not, they have no problem with censoring or silencing you.  

Republicans/conservatives believe in the 1st Amendment, and that everyone has a right to their own opinions and that they have a right to voice those opinions. 

Democrats/liberals believe rioting, burning, and looting are acceptable forms of “peaceful protesting.”  They believe in deferring to the desires of “the mob” as opposed to following the law.

Republicans/conservatives believe in law and order, and that no one has the right to harm other people or their property as part of their “protest.”

Democrats/liberals prefer to operate in a way that highlights a person’s racial identity, gender identity, or sexual preference above all else…, except their political leaning.  

Republicans/conservatives prefer to identify people by the quality of their character and by their actions and beliefs, without concern for race, color, or creed.

Democrats/liberals believe the United States’ industry, people and economy need to be punished and restricted due to “climate change,” while the rest of the world is allowed to keep right on polluting and taking advantage of us.

Republicans/conservatives believe if “climate change” is real, it wasn’t caused by us and we have no real way of affecting “climate change” one way or the other.

Democrats/liberals believe fossil fuels are evil and need to be done away with.  

Republicans/conservatives believe fossil fuels are still the energy souce of choice right now, at least until other options become viable. Republicans/consrvatives like the US having energy independence, not having to rely on the Middle East for anything, contolling our own energy pricing.

Democrats/liberals believe it’s okay for the “media” to operate as an arm of the democrat party, reporting only things that support their narrative, while attacking republicans/conservatives, and especially President Trump on a daily basis.  

Republicans/conservatives believe the “media” should report from an unbiased point of view, acting as a watchdog against all government improprieties, regardless of which party it is. 

And what about the economy?

Democrats/liberals point to the economy after China, and the democrats I believe, dropped the coronavirus bomb on us.  

Republicans/conservatives point the hottest economy in history, prior to the China virus, and believe President Trump can get our econmy humming again. Without the release of “The virus,” the democrats would not have stood a chance in this election.  

So, like I said in the beginning, “The choice is really quite simple.”  

The differences between democrats/liberals and republicans/conservatives have never been more obvious. 

The question is which side are you on?

If you’re having a hard time deciding who to vote for, you are obviously one confused individual!

There should be no undecided voters at this point. 

If you really are undecided, then maybe you shouldn’t even bother voting.

Just sayin’.

Another political “hit and run.”

Yes…, “hit and run” politics has become extremely popular for the democrats as of late.

It’s a nice tactic, when you can get away with it…, and, of course, the liberal propaganda fake news media is only more than happy to cooperate.

Most recently, we have seen vice presidential candidate, Senator Kamala Harris, perform a political “hit and run.”

According to Thomas Barrabi of Fox News, “Democratic vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris faced renewed scrutiny for her lack of press availability on Monday after she abruptly exited the stage after a speech in North Carolina in which she criticized President Trump’s bid to fill a Supreme Court seat before the election.”

“Harris did not take any questions from the media after her speech at Shaw University, one of North Carolina’s historically black colleges and universities. The event was closed to the general public and attended only by news reporters, according to the Fayetteville Observer.”

Political “hit and run!”

“Aside from her role as Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s running mate, Harris is a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee and will have a chance to directly question Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett, Trump’s pick to fill the high court vacancy, in any confirmation hearing that takes place prior to Nov. 3.”

“In her speech, which was criticized by the research wing of the Republican National Committee, Harris ripped the GOP for moving forward with the nomination so close to an election.”

‘“We will not give up, and we will not give in,’ Harris said. ‘We will not let the infection that President Trump has injected into the presidency and into Congress, that has paralyzed our politics and pitted Americans against each other, spread to the United States Supreme Court.’”

Translation: We will do everything we can to discredit and limit President Trump, since he refuses to play ball with the establishment politicians in Washington D.C. and our deep state bureaucrats. He has made it very difficult for all of us money grubbing, anti-America, vermin to take advantage of America and the American people.

“Harris has faced criticism for not taking questions from the press in recent days.”

Oh, Really?

I don’t think you can hardly call anything she has faced anywhere near any kind of serious criticism.

Now, President Trump, he faces criticism, serious criticism, on a daily basis.

The level of criticism The President faces would have little Joey Biden and little Kammy Harris running home and crying to their mommies.

Believe that.

“Reporters from multiple outlets have questioned why Harris hasn’t made herself available to the media, and [President] Trump and members of his campaign staff have frequently complained that both Biden and Harris are being given a free pass when it comes to questions from the press.”

Yes…, “reporters” from obscure outlets who nobody pays attention to. All of the major mainstream media outlets are sitting on their hands like good little co-conspirators.

“Fox News reported last week that Biden hasn’t participated in a formal press conference or gaggle since she was announced as Biden’s running mate in August.”

Yes, we’ve all seen the pathetic “press conferences” put on by Biden and his campaign…, which include a few “reporters” sitting in their socially distanced circles, and posing preapproved questions to Sleepy Joe, if they’re allowed to even do that.

“[President] Trump nominated [Judge Amy Coney] Barrett on Saturday for the Supreme Court seat held by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg until her death earlier this month.”

“In her speech, Harris warned that Barrett’s confirmation to the Supreme Court would endanger the Obama-era Affordable Care Act, as well as reproductive rights legislation.”

What you say is all a matter of opinion and perspective Senator Harris.

Some would say “good riddance” to the UNaffordable Care Act, as well as your “NON-reproductive rights.”

“The Supreme Court will hear arguments on the ACA just days after the election.”

‘“Judge Barrett has a long record of opposing abortion and reproductive rights,’ Harris said. ‘There is no other issue that so disrespects and dishonors the work of Justice Ginsburg’s life than undoing the seminal decision in the court’s history that made it clear a woman has a right to make decisions about her own body.’”

Again, what you say is all a matter of opinion and perspective Senator Harris.

Some would say, including me, that Justice Ginsburg has the blood of millions of unborn babies on her hands.

Just sayin’.

Rebecca Klar, for “The Hill” news website reported that, “Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s wife, Jill Biden, shut down a question Sunday from CNN’s Jake Tapper about any ‘gaffe’ her husband may make.”

‘“Oh, you can’t even go there,’ Jill Biden told the ‘State of the Union’ host when he led into a question by noting that the former vice president ‘has been known to make the occasional gaffe.’”

‘“After Donald Trump, you cannot even say the word gaffe,’ she said.”

‘“I can’t even say the word gaffe?’ Tapper asked.”

‘“Nope. Done. It’s gone,’ she responded.”

‘“Over, so over,’ she added.”

Wow…, way to fold up like a cheap suit there, Jake!

When Jill Biden tells you to shut up and go screw yourself…, if you’re the fake news, you shut up and go screw yourself!

It must be nice to be able to dictate what you may and may not be asked about.

“President Trump has sought to make Joe Biden’s age and mental acuity an issue in the campaign, suggesting the Democrat has dementia and accusing him of having used drugs to improve his public performance. Trump renewed his call on Sunday for drug tests before Tuesday’s debate.”

The President has also asked they both be checked for any communication devices in their ears.

The Biden campaign has denied both requests.

There’s only one reason why anyone would be afraid to take a drug test.

And there’s only one reason why you would care if anyone checked your ears for anything funny in there.

Just sayin’.

“Jill Biden told Tapper her husband is ready to face Trump on Tuesday in the first general election presidential debate.”

‘“Oh, my gosh, yes, he’s ready,’ she said on CNN. ‘You know, one of the things I am excited for is when the American people see Joe Biden up there on that stage, they’re going to see what a president looks like, someone who is, like I’m saying, calm, steady, strong, resilient. It’s like night and day between the two candidates. And so I can’t wait for the American people to see Joe, to see that statesman up there in front of the American public.’”

Wow, Mrs. Biden, but excuse me…, oh my gosh, you are sooo full of crap!

Another political “hit and run.”

Your definition of “peaceful” is shameful!   

According to Brian Flood of Fox News, “CBS News’ Norah O’Donnell says ‘mostly peaceful’ protests caused $1B to $2B in damage from looting and arson.”

That’s a pretty general statement, and as we will learn, that only reflects damages over a two-week period, not for all “protests” in total.

‘“Peaceful protests don’t leave behind death, destruction, and shattered lives in their wake,’ media analyst Nicholas Fondacaro says.”

“Many members of the mainstream media have made sure to paint nationwide protests as ‘peaceful’ in recent months– and ‘CBS Evening News’ anchor Norah O’Donnell demonstrated how far they’re willing to go on Wednesday night.”

Let’s stop and think about this for minute.

Is that really the job of the mainstream media and “CBS Evening News” in this particular instance, to “paint” events which are happening in our country or around the world?

Aren’t “news organizations” supposed to report what’s happening and let the public decide what to think about it?

“Axios [Axios is an American news website, founded in 2016, and launched the following year by former Politico team members.] reported earlier in the day that damage caused by ‘riots and civil disorders’ from May 26 through June 8 would cost insurance companies between $1-2 billion.”

‘“The vandalism and looting following the death of George Floyd at the hands of the Minneapolis police will cost the insurance industry more than any other violent demonstrations in recent history,’ Axios reported.”

Please note that it still hasn’t been determined that the officers were responsible for George Floyd’s death.

“When O’Donnell reported the overwhelming figure, she made sure to insist the protests were mostly peaceful.”

“Overwhelming figure?”

The real “overwhelming figure” would be the figure that takes into account ALL of the “protesting,” rioting, looting, burning, and vandalizing which has occurred over the past four months.

I would conservatively, no pun intended, estimate those damages to be in the tens of billions of dollars…, which taxpayers and people with insurance will end up paying for, I’m sure.

‘“The protests in late spring were mostly peaceful, but damage from looting and arson will cost $1 to $2 billion in claims. That’s according to the Insurance Information Institute. And that would eclipse the previous high, the 1992 riots that followed the acquittal of four officers in the beating of Rodney King,’ O’Donnell told viewers.”

In truth, the “protests” were mostly NOT peaceful.

“Media Research Center analyst Nicholas Fondacaro pointed out that NBC’s ‘Nightly News’ and ABC’s ‘World News Tonight’ didn’t bother to report the alarming statistic. While O’Donnell at least informed viewers of the damage, Fondacaro doesn’t understand why she needed to add the disclaimer.”

Has the Media Research Center mentioned that the mainstream media has failed to report much, if any, of the violence tied to the “protests” of the last four months?

It’s not really surprising then that most of the media failed to point out these “alarming statistics,” is it?

That answer would be a big, “no.”

‘“Earth to the liberal media, ‘peaceful’ protests don’t leave behind death, destruction, and shattered lives in their wake,’ Fondacaro wrote.”

What death, destruction and shattered lives are you talking about?  Don’t you realize, Mr. Fondacaro, that if the liberal propaganda fake news media doesn’t report something it didn’t really happen?

“Insurance Information Institute (or Triple-I) compiles information from a company called Property Claim Services (PCS), which has tracked insurance claims related to civil disorder since 1950, and other databases. It provided reports to Axios that the damage from unrest between May 26 and June 8 will be the most expensive in the nation’s history, surmounting the Rodney King riots of 1992 in Los Angeles.”

“The price tag could be as much as $2 billion and possibly more, according to Triple I. But the protests related to Floyd differ from others the database has tracked – never before have they been so widespread.”

‘“It’s not just happening in one city or state – it’s all over the country,’ Loretta L. Worters of the Triple-I told Axios. ‘And this is still happening, so the losses could be significantly more.’”

That’s a real good guess there, Ms. Worters.

I guess Captain Obvious could be a woman, although I never really thought about it before!

“The last time PCS compiled insurance losses for a ‘civil disorder event’ was 2015, when riots erupted in Baltimore after Freddie Gray died from a neck injury in police custody. But those riots did not even accrue $25 million in damages.”

Not even $25 million?

Well that’s hardly even worth mentioning then!

Ya know, I’ve seen that rich liberals and Biden staffers, encouraged by Kamala Harris, are raising a lot of money to bail some of these violent “protesters” out of jail. Quite a few in fact.

I keep reading about some of these scared companies donating millions and millions of dollars to the Black Lives Matter organization too.

Maybe the bail-out fund, the Black Lives Matter organization, and the rest of their corporate friends can help pay for some of the damage their friends have caused?

Just sayin’.

What in the Wide, Wide World of Sports is going on here?!

Okay…, so, let me get this straight.

A vice-presidential candidate, in the United States of America, mind you, is encouraging people to contribute money to the Minnesota Freedom Fund, which uses the money to bail criminals out of jail, who have looted businesses, burned down businesses and public buildings, and physically assaulted other people and police officers?

A current vice-presidential candidate, in the United States of America, is doing that?

Sadly, it is absolutely true.

Democrat candidate for vice-president, Kamala Harris, is encouraging people to contribute money to the Minnesota Freedom Fund, which uses the money to bail criminals out of jail, who have looted businesses, burned down businesses and public buildings, and physically assaulted other people and police officers.

This is not an issue at all for most democrats, but the Biden campaign has managed to recognize that a majority of the voters in America don’t see it that way.

So, as a result, they have sent their candidates, “Sleepy” Joe Biden and “Comrade” Kamala Harris, out to lie about their position, and pretend they care about law and order and protecting law abiding citizens.

David Marcus, of “The Federalist” website, reports, “Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have a problem. They know it, the media knows it, everyone knows it.”

“For three months they have ignored the deadly rioting that spread across the nation’s cities on both coasts and in between. They insisted that what we were seeing was ‘mostly peaceful’ protests and that Donald Trump and his evil allies were defaming decent Americans who just want social justice. Now they want to denounce these riots, but there is a problem: Harris is a financial supporter of the rioters she now claims to denounce.”

“Yes, that’s right, the Democrats’ vice presidential candidate was a huckster for a bail fund that sought to free violent criminals who were rioting on the streets of Minneapolis, and she was very effective at it.”

“In the wake of deadly fires and looting, Harris asked her five million plus Twitter followers to donate money to bail out the ‘protesters’ [criminals] arrested in the riots.”

Kamala wouldn’t want to help out any of the small business people who lost everything at the hands of these neo-fascist criminals…, she wants you to send in your hard-earned money to help get these neo-fascist criminals released from custody so they can go right back to destroying and looting more small businesses, and hurting more innocent people.

“Let’s meet a few of the beneficiaries of her [Kamala’s] largesse [generosity], shall we?”

“Fox 9 News in Minneapolis did the research for us. [That’s the kind of research MrEricksonRules likes!]”

“Here are a few of the criminals they found Harris did a solid for.”

“Among those bailed out by the Minnesota Freedom Fund (MFF) is a suspect who shot at police, a woman accused of killing a friend, and a twice convicted sex offender, according to court records reviewed by the FOX 9 Investigators.”

“According to attempted murder charges, Jaleel Stallings shot at members of a SWAT Team during the riots in May. Police recovered a modified pistol that looks like an AK-47. MFF paid $75,000 in cash to get Stallings out of jail.”

“Darnika Floyd is charged with second degree murder, for stabbing a friend to death. MFF paid $100,000 cash for her release.”

“Christopher Boswell, a twice convicted rapist, is currently charged with kidnapping, assault, and sexual assault in two separate cases. MFF paid $350,000 in cash for his release.”

And these are just a few of the many, many criminals Kamala sought to get released so they could get back to their business of destroying these cities and innocent lives.

“Kamala Harris and her friends in the corporate media, otherwise known as the propaganda arm of the Democratic Party [and fake news], will pretend this never happened and they are counting on voters to be too ignorant to know that it did.”

Definitely no shortage of ignorant voters!

“Harris was so eager to be on the rioters’ team that she literally raised money for them in the hopes that they could be released and foster further mayhem.”

And that’s what she thought was a good idea?

“That on its own would be bad enough. But the fact that she is now attempting to pretend she was against all of this violence, and looting, and arson, and destruction from the get go is an insulting joke. Did Harris really think that peaceful protesters obeying the rules were the ones arrested in Minneapolis? Of course she didn’t. She just assumed that justifying the unrest would help Democrats’ political chances. Now that this has been shown to be false, she is trying to change her position. But it’s way too late for that.”

“The American people aren’t stupid, they know exactly where Joe Biden, Kamala Harris and the Democratic Party stood on the riots.”

“They stood side by side with the rioters.”

“That they have now cynically come to regret that position is, I suppose, a good thing. But it does not erase the harm done in lives, property, and opportunity that their approval of rioting did.”

“We know whose side they were on, and it wasn’t the police.”

And it wasn’t on the side of law-abiding citizens either.

“The American people will not forget that.”

I hope not.

The latest China virus propaganda, courtesy of Esquire Magazine.

According to Jack Holmes of Esquire magazine, “The Hot New Conservative Talking Point on COVID-19 Is Extremely Wrong.”

Is it?

Is it really, Jack?

Is it really “extremely wrong?”

“The weekend’s big talking point for people more concerned with propping up the president’s campaign than grappling with reality was that a new CDC report found 94 percent of people who have been recorded as dying from COVID-19 have also had other causes of death listed.”

I’m not sure exactly how this can be viewed as, “propping up the president’s campaign,” unless exposing the truth about the China virus accomplishes this.

And you, Mr. Holmes, and your liberal friends, seem to be the ones “grappling with reality.”

Well, I guess you’re not really “grappling…,” it’s more like intentionally twisting reality.

“The thinking from some exceptionally large brains in the conservative media was that this meant only six percent of the recorded COVID deaths are actually deaths due to COVID, so that a big chunk of the 183,000 recorded deaths in the U.S. somehow shouldn’t count.”

Well, I gotta tell you, Jack…, 100% minus 94% does leave us with 6%, now doesn’t it?

And, these “large brained” people you speak of are not implying that the China virus had nothing to do with the deaths of the 94%…, they’re just correctly pointing out that only 6%, or 10,980 people died solely from the virus, with no underlying conditions, which would be about .0033% of the US population.

Even the entire 183,000 number is only .0555% of the US population.

Remember that .5 would represent one half of 1 percent.

Again, who do you feel is “grappling with reality,” Mr. Holmes?

Comparatively, in 2020, an estimated 606,520 people will die of cancer in the United States.

That’s 3 times the COVID related number, and 55 times the COVID only number.

And, the number of people who die from heart disease are pretty similar to the cancer numbers.

Holmes continues by saying, “This hasn’t yet spread as widely yet as some other right-wing tropes [please note that ‘trope’ is new liberal buzzword, meaning a ‘figurative idea’], but these days, you have to take it all seriously—and nip it in the bud early.”

Yes, we know Jack…, you gotta nip those nasty facts in the bud early, and put the proper liberal spin on them as soon as possible!

“It’s understandable that the president’s partisans would prefer not to confront his actual record on the pandemic.”

Now wait one darn minute there, Jack.

Who says, “The president’s partisans would prefer not to confront his actual record on the pandemic?”

I mean bsides you, of course?

Most people, who support The President, which would include me, feel he has done a good job dealing with the pandemic. It is the democrat governors and democrat mayors who have mishandled the handling of the China virus in my opinion, while Biden condemned President Trump’s early flight restrictions from China, and Pelosi and DeBlasio encouraged their constituents to ignore the virus and go out and have a good time.  You know, your friends, Jack.

Mr. Holmes then goes on to say, “Much like he’d [The President would] rather dwell on—and encourage—the unrest in the nation’s streets.”

I’m not sure where this bit of liberal propaganda BS came from, but it does give us clearer view as to where you’re coming from, Jack, if indeed we needed a clearer view.

Why, CNN…, you look like somebody just walked over your grave.

Brian Flood of Fox News reports that, “CNN’s in-house media pundit Brian Stelter was confronted by a C-SPAN caller on Tuesday who told him the liberal network is ‘dividing our nation’ and called CNN the ‘enemy of the truth.’”

Boom!

Bam!

Bingo!

“Stelter joined C-SPAN’s ‘Washington Journal’ to answer questions from viewers when a caller from Minnesota accused CNN of committing over 300,000 ‘distortions of truth’ since President Donald Trump took office.”

Oh, c’mon, 300,000?

Really?

It’s got to be much more than that!

‘“You guys always talk about how many times Trump has lied, I’ve calculated and, I think with your chyrons [electronically generated captions superimposed on a TV screen]…, I don’t know if there are any journalists left at CNN but I know that, if I were to estimate, about 300 different distortions or misinformation that we get out of CNN,’ the caller said. ‘And you have to watch them in the airport, which is harsh, but if you added all that up to 46 months, it comes out to be 300,000-plus distortions of truth.’”

“@TimJGraham tweeted, ‘Oh @brianstelter did not have a pile of fans calling in to C-SPAN today. This man really brought the pain, saying ‘CNN is the enemy of truth.’ Stelter said yeah, Trump has ‘radicalized’ people with this talk of media bias. Laughably claims MSM is structured to keep bias out!’”

“The caller then evoked Nick Sandmann, who famously settled a multimillion-dollar defamation lawsuit with CNN.”

‘“You defamed a child,’” the caller said, adding that CNN is ‘dividing our nation’ with partisan coverage.”

‘“And I don’t believe in dividing our nation, it hurts our great nation, and, so CNN is really the enemy of the truth,’ the caller said. ‘That’s my opinion, thank you.’”

“Stelter, who seemed to be used to such feedback and has been labeled media’s ‘hall monitor’ by critics in the past, said he was grateful for the call.”

Okay…, well that was just another lie!

‘“I know you’re not the only person that feels this way,’ Stelter said.”

Now that may be the biggest understatement of the year!

‘“There has been a process of radicalization that’s happened in this country with media bashing that is absolutely unprecedented.’”

Yes, Brian Stelter, there has definitely been a “process of radicalization in this country,” but it has nothing to do “media bashing.”

And, yes, the media bashing has been “absolutely unprecedented,” and rightfully so!

“Stelter then said that many journalists live in big cities and have ‘liberal leanings,’ but newsrooms should ensure that ‘bias doesn’t seep into the news coverage.’”

Oh, come on, Brian…, what we’re talking about here is MUCH MORE than “liberal leanings” and “bias.” What we’re talking about here is a concerted and coordinated liberal propagandizing effort.

‘“Yet sometimes it [regarding bias seeping into the news] does,’ Stelter said. ‘I absolutely acknowledge that. I think it’s different to talk about things as if they are enemies.’”

‘“No American is an enemy of another American.’”

Lie!

‘“No news outlet is an enemy of America.’”

Another lie!

So, now they’re willing to acknowledge their biases in an effort to buy their unabashed liberal propaganda campaign some time…, in their minds.

The media was intended to be the watchdog of the government on behalf of the American people.

Well, the American people have been sold down the river…, and what are left with is the equivalent of a fox guarding the hen house.

A more appropriate metaphor might be a nest of rats guarding your children.

In any case…, the liberal propaganda, fake news media was deservedly called-out here, and they are as guilty as hell.

In my mind, what these “news” outlets are guilty of is the equivalent of treason against our country.

The Portland Police are giving up on policing the “far-right???”

Policing the “far-right?”

How about policing the “far-left?!!!”

The last time I checked, Portland was into their 70th or 80th or whatever ridiculous number of straight nights of violence, burning, and looting, courtesy of the neo-fascist, radical, left-wing, rioters.

But, they’re giving up on policing the far-right?

How about even beginning to police the far-left?!

According to Andy Campbell for HuffPost [HuffPost is a liberal American news website], “The Portland Police Bureau [PPB] appears to have all but given up on policing the far-right factions brawling in the Oregon city’s streets, despite a recent escalation in violence that has seen those extremists throw explosives, brandish guns and in one case fire them at other protesters.”

apolice 1

“It’s common to see far-right extremist groups like the ‘Proud Boys’ exchanging blows with counter-protesters in Portland. They’ve been doing that for years, often as PPB officers watched until a riot was officially declared and then police cleared the streets using tear gas and other munitions.”

I must admit, I was not aware of these confrontations between the left and the right groups amid the rioting in Portland.

For some reason, it was a well-kept secret by the media.

And this is the first I’ve heard of “the proud boys” as well.

“But over the weekend, police took an entirely hands-off approach to the fighting, even as the demonstrations grew more violent than ever.”

Excuse me, but, you’re saying the Portland police taking a “hands-off approach” with the violence is news?

Just sayin’.

“As officers stood by on Saturday, the ‘Proud Boys’ and their far-right friends attacked and intimidated anti-fascist protesters using paintball guns, mace, fireworks, aluminum bats and various firearms, according to The Washington Post.”

The term “anti-fascist protesters,” which is used here, is a complete misnomer.

These radical, left-wing, agitators, are neither “anti-fascists” nor
protesters.”

They are neo-fascist terrorists.

And, oh, the poor, poor protesters!

They were being intimidated!!!

Can you imagine?!

The nerve of those ruthless “proud boys!”

Now, getting back to the “far-right” groups, as the HuffPost describes them, “One of them — notorious ‘Proud Boys’ organizer Alan Swinney — was seen pointing a gun at protesters, his finger on the trigger. Another ‘Proud Boy,’ Tusitala “Tiny” Toese, was present, per the Post, in apparent violation of his parole over an attack at a similar demonstration in 2017 (he wasn’t apprehended on Saturday, but a judge on Monday issued a warrant for his arrest).”

apolice 2

Now, this is a new wrinkle to the riot reporting.

They name the members of this “proud boy” group.

I don’t recall the media naming any members of the rioting group, much less attaching a name to the rioting group in general.

It’s obviously a preconceived propaganda strategy of the fake news.

apolice 3

“Meanwhile, over a loudspeaker, police encouraged those present to ‘self-monitor for criminal activity.’ In essence, the PPB had thrown up its hands.”

“Self-monitor?!

Ha!!!

That’s a good one I haven’t heard before!

“In a statement to The Washington Post, the bureau said that officers were tired from responding to ongoing demonstrations against racism and police brutality, which have kept Portland in the national spotlight for weeks. Officers wouldn’t intervene in small skirmishes between ‘willing participants,’ even if the clashes fit the city’s definition of a riot.”

Can you blame them?

Can you blame them one little bit?

The correct answer to these questions is “no,” just in case you were wondering.

‘“Each skirmish appeared to involve willing participants and the events were not enduring in time, so officers were not deployed to intervene,’ the bureau said of Saturday’s events. PPB members have been the focus of over 80 days of violent actions directed at the police, which is a major consideration for determining if police resources are necessary to interject between two groups with individuals who appear to be willingly engaging in physical confrontations for short durations.”

This is an interesting development.

Sooo, what we have here is a type of government sanctioned lawlessness.

Huh.

“Allowing local far-right groups to wreak havoc on the city isn’t a big departure for the PPB. As the ‘Proud Boys’ cheered, officers launched tear gas and other munitions at anti-fascist counter-protesters [Isn’t this a double negative?  Who are we exactly talking about here?] during a rally in 2017, which left one antifa protester with a gas canister lodged in his head.”

Ouch!

No pictures of this, of course.

And what’s this “allowing local far-right groups to wreak havoc on the city” stuff?

It would appear that the “far-right groups” are wreaking havoc on the neo-fascist terrorists, not the city.

“Police gave the ‘Proud Boys’ an escort out of the city following a rally in 2018 that saw the far-right demonstrators outnumbered by anti-fascists. A key officer had a friendly and ongoing relationship with the leader of ‘Proud Boys’ affiliate group ‘Patriot Prayer,’ judging from texts obtained by Willamette Week.”

Willamette who?

Is naming this person supposed to lend some kind of credence to the information?

Just sayin’.

Anyway, “But relinquishing the act of policing to the brawlers themselves is both new and concerning, especially given the context: Local extremists have escalated their violent tactics in recent weeks, brazenly introducing guns and a lot more weaponry to the melee.”

“Local right-wing protester Skylor Jernigan [Here they go naming names again.], who attended a conservative ‘flag wave’ demonstration in Portland earlier this month alongside Swinney, allegedly shot at Black Lives Matter protesters from inside a car. Nobody was hit.”

“He was later arrested and charged with two felony counts of unlawful use of a weapon.”

This definitely seems like a case of “selective enforcement” of the law here.

“During the same event, Swinney was seen spraying protesters with chemical irritants and shooting them with rounds from a paintball gun. He faced no immediate consequence for those displays or for pointing a pistol at protesters this past Saturday.”

Nor should he, based on the prior treatment of “the protesters.”

I feel like it’s time to interject a couple applicable sayings here:

“What’s good for the goose is good for the gander,” for example.

And, “What goes around comes around.”

Or, how about, “You’ve made your bed, now you have to lie in it.”
