GREAT NEWS ON PRESIDENT TRUMP'S CONDITION
According to President Trump’s White House physician, not only has he had no fever for four days and been symptom-free for one day, but blood tests show detectable levels of antibodies for the virus.
Further tests will be needed to determine whether or not these are “neutralizing antibodies” or if the President could possibly still be infectious. Still, we can see that he’s moving in the right direction and certainly appears to be on the road to recovery. All his vital signs, including oxygen saturation and respiratory rate, are stable and within the normal range.
For now, the President is working from the White House residence --- and getting a lot done, as we have reported. They’re using very careful protocol around him: masks, even goggles. Chief of Staff Mark Meadows reports that a number of safety protocols are in place for when the President decides to return to work in the Oval Office.
The next debate with Democrat candidate Joe Biden is set for October 15, and that sounds like plenty of time for the President to be in fine shape --- and most likely not contagious, either.
Tonight is the one and only Vice Presidential debate. While these don’t usually draw as big an audience as the top-of-the-ticket debates, it’s important to watch this one because Mike Pence could be President in 2024, and Kamala Harris could be President in January.
Here’s an article outlining some things to watch for.
And since no story involving the Trump White House is complete without a bugs-in-the-brain crazy media reaction, some reporters were spinning wild theories about why Pence requested that it be a sit-down debate instead of a standing debate. Is he sick? Is he shorter than her? Is he trying to rob a woman of her power position by forcing her to sit? After all, it’s UNPRECEDENTED!!
Except that it isn’t. Several Vice Presidential debates in recent races have been sit-down debates, including the last one in 2016 between Pence and Tim Kaine, and the one before that in 2012 between Joe Biden and Paul Ryan. Maybe Pence just thinks it’s easier to stay calm and rational when sitting down. Some of our White House reporters might want to try it sometime.
Meanwhile, the hysterically anti-Trump media are so discombobulated that Trump didn’t die of the coronavirus (indeed, he's already back and working harder than Biden is without COVID-19) that they turned their blind partisan fury on Walter Reed Medical Center. The New York Times’ Maureen Dowd claimed that Trump had left its reputation in “tatters,” and the Washington Time’s token “conservative” Jennifer Rubin (who’s about as conservative as I am Japanese) suggested that Congress should defund the clinic.
Their idiotic comments received the response they deserved, with Sen. Ted Cruz summing up Dowd perfectly in just five words: “Your hate has destroyed you”…
And just about everyone, even some Democrat politicians, eviscerated Rubin, with many offering reminders of the many heroic wounded veterans who have received extraordinary and life-saving care from Walter Reed Medical Center.
I think both of these writers are just jealous of how quickly the President is recovering when they still can’t find a cure for their terminal Trump Derangement Syndrome.
"THE RIGHT TO OBSERVE OUR RELIGION"
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is threatening to close Orthodox Jewish synagogues if they don’t obey his limits on public gatherings, and Mayor Bill DeBlasio is threatening to arrest Orthodox Jews if they dare gather to worship. But they give their blessings to huge mass gatherings of violent, black-clad protesters who behave like fascists. Now, let me think, who else did that?...
The Orthodox Jewish community responded angrily to the threats and restrictions last night, with hundreds of people rallying in Brooklyn and even lighting a fire in protest. Local Jewish lawmakers slammed Cuomo for his “scientifically and constitutionally questionable shutdown of our communities,” and city councilman Kalman Yeger told the crowd, “We are not going to be deprived of the right that we have in America, like everybody else in America, the right to observe our religion.”
Sadly, that right is also under assault all across America, but I’m heartened to see many churches and synagogues fighting back and winning in the courts. Also by doing what they did in Brooklyn: staging a mass protest, which the politicians threatening them can't object to because they've already declared that mass protests don’t spread the virus, particularly when there’s fire involved.
"LIKE TRUMP, ONLY WITHOUT TRUMP"
Joe Biden is running on a platform that boils down mostly to “Just like Trump, only without Trump!” He’s going to bring back manufacturing jobs, put America first, and all the other things he never did in 47 years in Washington that Trump got elected by promising to do (and doing, to great success.) Joe calls this plagiarized platform “Build Back Better.”
So would you be really shocked to learn that even the phrase “Build Back Better” was apparently plagiarized from another conservative political leader who, like Trump, got elected by promising to do the exact opposite of what his processor did?
There has never in history been a better A-B comparison of Democrat to Republican ideas than the back-to-back records of Obama/Biden and Trump/Pence. We went from the weakest recovery since the Depression to the best economy and lowest unemployment in history…from ISIS growing across the Middle East, bringing murder, slavery and turmoil in its wake, to ISIS crushed and a string of peace deals between Israel and Arab States…from targeting the domestic fuel industry for extinction to America becoming an exporter of energy, undermining the power of Russia and OPEC…from suing impoverished nuns to force them to pay for contraceptives to defending religious freedom rights…and on and on.
A similar comparison can be drawn between blue states that people are fleeing from and the red states they’re fleeing to. In California, the “Golden State” that used to represent the American dream, the more power the leftwing Democrats get, the further back in time it regresses. San Francisco already regressed to the Middle Ages, with wealthy lords living in walled castles while the peasants huddle in whatever shelter they can find, surrounded by filth. Now, much of the state is back to caveman days, huddling in the dark, afraid to leave their dens for fear of dangerous marauders, disease and FIRE!! Fire bad!!
And they not only keep voting for more of this, they think the entire nation needs to be run like California. Are they clinically insane?
Trump could easily make the case that if you want America to be strong, free and prosperous, it's easy: just look at what Obama/Biden did and do the exact opposite.
FELONY CHARGES HANDED DOWN
A grand jury in St. Louis has handed down felony charges against Mark and Patricia McCloskey, the couple who brandished weapons to make protesters move on who were trespassing on their property and threatening their home, their lives and their dog.
They’re charged with unlawful use of a weapon (even though they were obviously acting in self-defense, Missouri has a Castle Doctrine law that protects that right, and the firearms were apparently unloaded and one wasn’t functional) and tampering with evidence (even though it was apparently the DA’s office that tampered with the evidence.) The protesters who threatened them were not charged with anything.
Attorney General Eric Schmitt already filed a motion to intervene in the case and block the prosecution, and Gov. Mike Parson said that if they’re convicted of a crime, he’ll pardon them. But both Schmitt and Parson are up for reelection. If they’re replaced by Democrats like those in the St. Louis D.A.’s office who think that Constitutional rights apply only to protesters, rioters and trespassers, the McCloskey’s could be looking at serious legal liability for nothing but exercising their Second Amendment right to self-defense.
Mark this down as just the latest of the many, many, many reasons why I say the 2020 election could determine not only the future of America, but whether you still retain your Constitutional rights at all.
A grand jury in Tyler County, Texas, issued a felony indictment against Netflix over the film “Cuties.” The indictment charges that Netflix “knowingly” promoted visual material which “depicts the lewd exhibition of the genitals or pubic area of a clothed or partially clothed child who was younger than 18 years of age at the time the visual material was created, which appeals to the prurient interest in sex, and has no serious, literary, artistic, political, or scientific value.”
That last part (that it has no artistic value) will make it difficult to prosecute the case, since it’s notoriously subjective and Netflix is already arguing that it’s not child porn but “a social commentary against the sexualization of young children” (which I guess could only be done by depicting the sexualization of young children, which required hiring young child actors and exploiting and sexualizing them - you know, like in child porn.) A spokesperson for Netflix told Fox News, “This charge is without merit and we stand by the film."
DAILY BIBLE VERSE
Even if the charge never makes it to court, at least it’s drawn more publicity to the kind of offensive slime Netflix is willing to promote, and considering there’s already a rising campaign to cancel subscriptions, that can’t hurt.
