There are times to put politics aside and this is one of them: prayers for Sen. Bernie Sanders, who had to undergo heart surgery to insert two stents after he experienced chest pains at a campaign event and was found to have an artery blockage.  His campaign events have been canceled until further notice while he recovers. We all wish him a full and speedy recovery.

Speaking of leftists who simply refuse to learn, California officials intend to waste even more of their taxpayers’ money by appealing a judge's ruling that threw out the state’s law requiring all Presidential candidates to release five years’ worth of personal tax forms before their names could be on the state ballot.

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/trump-tax-returns-california-appeal-2020-primary

While California legislators claimed the law wasn’t aimed at President Trump but was just for financial transparency, it was clearly an attempt to keep Trump off the 2020 ballot, which would have depressed Republican turnout and harmed the Party in all down-ballot races. US District Judge Morrison C. England Jr. saw through the California leftists’ vegan baloney and issued a 24-page ruling, finding the law violated the First Amendment freedom of association and attempted to add extra requirements for the Presidency, which are set solely by the Constitution (natural-born citizen 35 or older and a resident for at least 14 years, period.)  

If you let states add their own requirements, Texas might declare that each candidate must be able stay on a bucking bronco for at least eight seconds, while Minnesota might require that they be able to finish an entire serving of lutefisk.  The possibilities are endless, and endlessly ridiculous, which is why the Judge was absolutely right to throw California’s law in the garbage where it belongs. 

If the officials in Sacramento seriously think this Supreme Court is going to side with them, then California needs to add a requirement that anyone running for statewide office be forced to pass a mental health evaluation.  Come to think of it, they should do that anyway.  It would get rid of most of the legislature and governor, so they could start over from scratch.

--------------------------

This is an almost unbelievable story that once again proves there’s nothing so intolerant as a tolerant liberal.  In Thousand Oaks, California, a charity flag football event to raise money for the family of an officer killed in last year’s mass shooting and the families of other slain officers was canceled after the police chief reportedly withdrew department support because Republicans, including Trump supporters Scott Baio and singer Joy Villa, were going to be there and speak.  (Not to be rude, but if you want to raise money for the police, you’d better invite Republicans.) 

https://www.foxnews.com/us/fallen-officers-charity-event-on-hold-after-police-chief-withdraws-becuase-republicans-were-invited-report

A spokesman for the Fallen Officers’ Foundation recalled, "He basically said over and over in the conversation, 'This is not Trump country, that slogan 'Make America Great' is not favorable, popular, within 1,200 square miles,' that we don’t want Republicans here. I could not believe it. 'The only thing,' and I quote, 'the only thing you [could have done to make] this worse, Mike, was to invite Dick Cheney and Sarah Huckabee Sanders.' And I went, 'Wow, are you kidding me?"

I should mention here that the event would have been darn lucky to get my daughter to attend.  And she probably would have said yes, because she believes in helping the families of fallen officers without administering a political litmus test to the crowd.

Because of the police chief’s selfish political intolerance, the event was canceled and thousands of dollars in donations that had already come in had to be returned.

This whole thing is a tragedy and a travesty.  It was also likely unnecessary to have returned the donations because I’ll bet most of them came from Republicans who would have said, “That’s okay, just give it to the officers’ families.”  Know why?  Because we’re not jerks.

---------------------------------------

 

If you’re still wondering why there are so many empty seats at NFL games these days, maybe it’s because players who show disrespect for the flag and the National Anthem get defended by the league and get fat contracts from Nike, while players who show their religious beliefs get fined thousands of dollars for displaying “personal messages” during the game (is taking a knee during the National Anthem not "displaying a personal message"?)  Also worth noting: the team he plays for is called “the Saints.”  Someone in the NFL front office should look up what that word means.

-----------------------------------------

The College Fix sent a camera and reporter to the big Climate Strike Day protest at St. Olaf College in Minnesota to see what the students think. Turns out they believe plenty, but they don’t think much at all.

https://www.westernjournal.com/watch-college-students-hilarious-claims-world-ending-12-years/

A number of students voiced their absolute belief that the world will be uninhabitable in 12 years (a claim that even Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has backed away from), or maybe even sooner,  because “science,” bro’!  The writer at the link suggests that these are the last students who should be skipping class for any reason, and point well taken.  On the other hand, if they sincerely believe what they say, why should they stay in college and spend their final handful of days on Earth working to pay off student loan debt?  Their parents partied like it was 1999, and they had both the Y2K scare and their own environmental zealots’ warnings that the Earth was dying in X number of years to worry about. 

You know I’m old enough to have survived the passing of lots of deadlines for the end of the world because when I saw these students and heard the name “St. Olaf,” I thought of the town full of nitwits that Rose came from on “The Golden Girls.”    

--------------------------

 

Someone in Winchester, Minnesota, is turning “outrage culture” against its practitioners with a simple but brilliant prank. Posters are appearing around town reading, “Islam is right about women.”  Liberals and the media describe the posters as “offensive,” but when pressed on why they’re offensive, they can’t figure out what to say without getting outraged at themselves. 

https://www.spiked-online.com/2019/09/26/the-genius-of-the-islam-is-right-about-women-stunt/

If they say it’s because Islam has the wrong views on women, then they’re Islamophobic. But if they defend Islam’s views on women, then they’re sexist…and besides, why are they saying the posters are offensive if they’re correct?

I seem to recall an old episode of “Star Trek” in which Kirk disabled a rogue computer by telling it, “Everything I say is a lie. I am a liar.” It explodes trying to figure out what to make of that.  Listen closely and you might hear liberals’ heads exploding all the way from Massachusetts as they struggle to sound PC over this sign without sounding un-PC.

    These false accusations by Adam etc should now start some investigations into other
    family corruption among the lifers. Pelosi....Kerry.....Waters......etc....just like the Biden's. Time

    I think all political candidates should have to pass a high school civics test that includes questions about the Constitution, or the US citizen test. Either should prove interesting in most cases by what they are saying.

    I would like to understand, if you can explain in next letter, what is taking the Republicans so long to go after Schiff, Pelosi, Nadler and Waters. The vile that comes from their mouths are all lies, saving when they say hello. They should all be censured and Schiff and Waters should be removed from the House for lying and promoting civil unrest and attack fellow citizens.

    I know asking you at least it would be the truth. The Republicans seem to be weak sisters when is comes to standing up against these idiots except for a few brave souls.

    Comments would be appreciated. Thank you and God Bless you and your family. Pls read Psalm 58 when you get an opportunity. It fits with what the left is doing

    Wow...just think if we had the same directives for Presidential Candidates years ago: Chappaquidic, WhiteWater, etc..; but show your tax returns and you're fine! As for MN: I am with you; Rose painted a really dim picture of the culture there!

    Question: Are there laws prohibiting the wearing of masks during public protests ? Not sure if I should be more specific, parades, demonstrations which have obtained a city permit to use city streets or public parks ?

    Thousand Oaks , Moorpark and Simi Valley are stable refuge residential and business cities off the 101 and 118 Fwys. Great family towns and largely where L.A. city, county and state Fire, Sheriff and Police families live to have a decent quality of life since the San Fernando Valley has tanked in QOL (I grew up there). And yes, I would bet a large majority are conservatives...not that their votes count anymore. Sort of a political Alamo. If home prices hadn't dropped so bad many would like to sell & leave California, per my daughter who has lived in Moorpark for decades.

    That's a good one with the posters. Hope they come up with more along the same line. It is oxymoronic --or, more accurately moronic for all the "woke" folks to demand we all be for Islamism and at the same time be "woke" to lbgtx and feminism. They need to make up their mind which it will be. Or, perhaps be educated about how women and gays are treated by Islams in their countries.

    Too bad that the CA police chief lets his own selfish opinions about politics deprive the families of fallen officers from assistance that is needed and would be appreciated. Don't know if that is an elected position there--but if it is, hope the citizens make sure he doesn't continue in his job. Probably stands behind the sanctuary movement, too. Wonder what atrocities he thought Republicans would speak about. IMO, they would probably only praise the fallen officers. gasp.

    As the people on the Left like to call conservatives, Trump supporters Racist and about every word ending in ist as I have commented before the left looks into a wall size mirror they write down what they see in the reflection and accuse President Trump of what they had just witness. Lets be clear about one thing here the reflections are not physically the same some of the reflections come in Tall Short Black White ,Brown Old Young Fat Skinny Bald Men Women Gay Straight People that have several traits in common they Hate Trump or America are Dishonest They will not work for Americans or America they want power to dictate how Americans will live the rest of their lives with in a matter of 10 years you and the world will not see America as the gold standard of the world but one that looks like the streets of LA SF a country that looks like skid row.

    I like nothing about Bernie Sander's policies or his political views, but he has been one of the more civil members who won't encourage crowd cheering things like Koch's death. That certainly does NOT make any part of his proposals acceptable. His work history (no job except ones that were paid by taxes and a week in a furniture factory where he failed) alone disqualifies him from ANY national office. The fools who moved to Vermont put him in office to the disgust of generational locals should hang their heads in shame.

    To bad about Bernie Sanders and his medical situation. I hope people will pray for him. A man with his problems does not need to take on the pressure of running a political campaign.
    With regard to the world coming to an end or being uninhabitable. I probably will not be around in 12 years and if I am then I know I am ready to meet my maker.

    These students "skip class" and then expect the rest of us to pay for their sorry education(they can't even make change for a dollar) --right--the colleges give them a by --standards that have degraded, but the cost goes up--the competent professors are ham stringed by the system--talk about "dumbing down" of our youth--no consequences

    I have ranted before about the integrity of High School and University Education being a lab for Liberal and Socialist brain washing. You can walk about these beautiful Campus and spend 200,000 dollars and come out thinking the Earth will disappear in 10 to 12 years. You can go to an urban institution come out not able to read or write so well and don't care what happens next year or 10 or 12 years from now. That is why People like Pelosi Schiff Schumer Booker Harris Watters can get elected to some of the best jobs in Government that is why the President has to drain the swamp. Yes low IQ people will be paid to come out and carry a sign and spend 2 days learning to chant a five word sentence. The above people mentioned will keep their districts in low IQ mode so they can try and destroy America. Vote Trump we WILL overcome MAGA!!!

    One thing that gets me about climate change, etc., that these dumbs dumbs think their little pea brains are better than God's brain. Like God made such a flimsy universe. Devil got them to take another lie hook-line & sinker...sounds incredibly like democrats wanting us to take all their junk hook-line & sinker. Close relations to the devil. Let us re-read the parable, the rich man & Lazarus. Another proof in the pudding moment, have you seen the streets of Los Angeles & other sanctuary cities.
