This morning, in two 7-2 decisions, the Supreme Court allowed Democratic Manhattan D.A. Cyrus Vance Jr. access to President Trump’s personal and business tax returns but denied Democratic Congressional investigators access to them. There are more details on the rulings at the link.

The New York case was sent back to a lower court, so Vance won’t get his hands on Trump’s tax returns anytime soon, and it’s doubtful the public will see them before the election. I say that "the public will see them" because the second Vance does get access to Trump’s private tax returns, I’ll set the timer going to see how long it takes for them to be illegally leaked to Congressional Democrats and the New York Times. Tick, tick, tick…


Here’s another chilling reminder from Hong Kong of how fast your rights and freedoms can be taken away when you let leftist totalitarians come into power.


Wednesday, Attorney General Bill Barr announced the creation of Operation Legend, a federal crackdown to help bring the rampant crime and violence in (Democrat-run) cities under control. Follow the link to see why it’s named Operation Legend. The answer will surprise you. It may also sadden and infuriate you.


If Bernie has his way...he won't be.

A group of Biden and Bernie Sanders supporters are working on what’s called the Biden-Sanders Unity Task Force Recommendations, a compromise suggested Democratic platform that appears to be largely cut-and-pasted (plagiarized?) from Bernie’s 2020 campaign platform of straight-up, open-borders socialism.

Here’s an example of the kind of “moderate” policies you’re likely to get under a President Biden: not only would the estimated 11-22 million illegal immigrants currently in the US get amnesty (and Obamacare), and virtually all immigration laws and border controls be removed, but the US would be declared an asylum for all the world’s migrants. That’s currently estimated at about 160 million, or roughly half the current US population.


There’s a debate raging about whether kids should return to school in the fall or if it’s still too dangerous because of the coronavirus (even though the virus death rate for people under 18 is just about zero.) Many Democrats insist on keeping schools closed, claiming it’s for safety reasons, although Republicans suspect they want to keep everything shut down until after the election to inflict maximum pain on America so that voters will be too angry to think straight and will vote for them.

President Trump insists that schools should open, and here’s a story about a mom who agrees and makes a strong case.

On the other hand, to paraphrase “Field of Dreams,” if you open public schools, will anybody come? A new USA Today/Ipsos poll found that 60% of parents say that even if schools reopen, they’ll likely keep homeschooling their kids anyway. Sure, many cited fears of the disease, but I suspect that for millions, they’ve discovered that their kids do better with individual learning supervised by parents. I also suspect that they’re looking at the streets filled with brainwashed, anti-American, underemployed, communist, gender studies majors and realizing that they no longer want to entrust their kids to the leftist indoctrination factories.

My writers, Pat and Laura, gave me a personal anecdote to back this up: a friend of theirs who came to the US from Great Britain became successful here and is very patriotic and pro-American. He was so successful, he could send his kids to the “best” schools. So his daughter went off to college and returned home a raving anti-American socialist. Over the holidays, she went on a rant against America, and he finally had enough and read her the riot act about how all of the privileges she’s enjoyed are a direct result of him coming to America. Fortunately, it appears her younger brother is rebelling against her by becoming an Alex Keaton-like conservative, so there is hope for the younger generation, as long as they’re not sent to schools that ruin them.

Last week’s Supreme Court ruling requiring states to allow faith-based schools to participate in K-12 scholarship programs is also a big blow to the leftist education establishment and a big win for parents and students.

This sudden rejection of the liberal education system has the educationists so terrified of losing their captive audience that in Great Britain, liberals in government announced plans to fine families who dare try to keep their kids home.

This is all the more reason why parents in the US need to go to the polls in November and vote for candidates who support school choice. This is especially important for minority parents whose kids will otherwise be forced to attend failing inner city public schools. And just to be clear: those candidates are NOT the ones with a (D) by their names.


Speaking of school starting, no matter what the issue, you can always count on New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio to come up with the worst possible response. He’s declared that since 75% of New York parents want schools to restart, he will allow schools to reopen, but only on a part-time schedule.

Naturally, he used the occasion to bash Trump and boast that he is following the science, but nothing whatsoever about this decision makes logical sense. It still forces parents to scramble to try to find child care, while depriving the kids of full-time schooling. And how does it prevent any spread of the virus if the kids and teachers are still going to be together in the classrooms part-time? Does the virus only spread in full-time classes? Or did he make a deal with it not to spread during part-time classes, the way it doesn’t spread at leftist protest rallies, only at pro-Trump and anti-lockdown rallies?

My personal theory is that he’s afraid if New York kids are fully educated, they won’t grow up to vote for incompetent leftists like Bill DeBlasio.

    I've been researching COVID since day one and trying to incorporate world wide points of view instead of just our CDC, WHO (not) and IMHO. Every single epidemiologist (other than those who want the country shut down as long as possible) says that since there is no vaccine, the best defense is herd immunity. That is only achieved by having health people exposed as quickly as possible. No masks, no distancing, kids in school, businesses open. Some countries did this right away and they are well on their way toward herd immunity. They did have a higher death rate initially, but not now. The fact (CDD) that 90+% of the COVID positive have no or mild symptoms does not seem to resonate with people here, because they have been scared to death by MSM 24/7. If parents don't send their kids back to school, then that is their problem for not paying attention to the fact that the death rate for kids is about zero.

    I agree with president Trump about opening the schools in September. And the idea that faith based schools should participate in K-12 scholarship programs is wonderful. These two actions will benefit all the children. And it will get us back closer to a normal. It will be good for all of us. I do understand that the opposing folks (D) to this idea, want to create and have chaos reign, with the covert intention that somehow this will affect who the people of America will vote for come November 2020.
    Interesting point by the way, that there is the possibility that parents have gotten to see what the schools and universities are turning out as a product regarding the young socialist rioters, and do not want their children exposed to the Marxist indoctrination in education.
    Crazy idea: open USA to ALL immigrants? It is frightening though. Just look at it! And I apologize, but the New York City Major Bill DeBlasio is a certifiable idiot!! If the why is not understood, please read his illogical proposal of "opening the schools half a day....??"

    I would love to see people stand up and demand that we see all of the democrats tax returns. I think we have that right to do so. We need to take their pay checks until they start working for our country. We have too many former corrupt people trying to destroy us. They should have been prosecuted and put in prison long ago.

    Thank you again, Governor for speaking the truth. It is definitely hard to come by these days. Thank you also for including a scripture at the end of your daily newsletter. Were it not for Christian groups like Focus on the Family, Samaritan's Purse, and My Faith Votes, these would be very discouraging times. As my brother always says, "Persevere!" May God bless you and America.

    If parents are going to homeschool their children, I pray that they teach them American History and respect for it.

    It's Amazing.... Going through the on-line "news feed".... About half the articles are disparaging President Trump in some way, shape, or form..... and the OTHER half are split between doom & despair over this covid-nonsense, and where to spend your vacation, what to invest in, what to buy, what the "stars" are doing, etc.

    I am thoroughly disgusted with what passes for "media" in this country. There is NO TRUTH OR HONOR in journalism anymore.

    Tick Tock The passing of Carlie Daniels is very sad what an asset to the country he has been in so many ways he will be missed. Another sad point today as I reflect on the murders of children on our cities streets. No one will know what these kids could have done if the Mayors of these cities would honor the oath they took to protect and serve the public. Charges against these mayors will not bring back all the loss of life and property damage; its incompentence or dereliction of duty whatever the headline you use is cause for immediate removal and criminal charges against them that allowed and aided in these atrocities. This is not the work of an American official but abuse by home grown terrorists.

    Have you heard of the Parent Union? It's in California (that's amazing) trying to give parents a voice in combat with the Teacher's Union. I think that the lady that started it would be a great guest on your TBN show.

    Trump's tax stuff:
    I think Mr. Trump already gave everybody his personal tax returns.---That's all anyone is entitled to, period. Just like all the other Presidents.
    His personal business dealings(being separate from personal taxation of his businesses) are not subject to this inquiry(unless the IRS requires it-but even then not subject to public scrutiny--read the stupid tax code).
    Let's say the SCOTUS requires this in the future--gonna have a hard time justifying his against biden /clinton/obama

    In Australia all children q went back to school at the end of April have been at shoo; a full term 10 weeks and no children or teachers have come down with the virus.
    There are strict hygiene rules the children are aware of that and are complying happily because being at school for the vast majority is better than being at home

    Our country has a new weapon pointed at the United States John Roberts and the Supreme Court. I felt this bunch had some respect and dignity for the constitution Roberts discarded that a long time ago now the bench has a couple of more didn’t take long for that to happen, 3 more humans cowardly added to the list. Just added fuel for another hoax. sad to hear Barr is going to let the deep state slide on the spying on the trump campaign and the Flynn case to continue what a waste by by America no law or order no America

    I also agree that many parents would prefer to keep their kids home from school for not only one-on-one learning, but also they feel it's their only power against the liberal-crazed anti-American socialist-communist idiots who are causing riots in the streets and small towns. Kids in school know more about Skpe and technology than many of their parents and they do get more individual attention by teachers, and it does make teachers actually earn their wage and benefits those kids who get too distracted in a large group classroom. Some critics against homeschooling tout the ole 'kids need socializing' etc., but how many kids actually go out and play with their friends or stay inside a play video games? More like doing video games than going out and playing with friends. Look at all the people, when we went in to restaurants to eat, who were still attached to their smart phones or tablets instead of visiting with others while eating out in a restaurant? So socializing isn't that important for kids now, especially when they can't play in groups for sports or whatnot because of the social distancing anyway? So the liberals who started all this shutdown do to virus, have created their own demise now as the parents and kids don't want to be social and prefer doing things on their own. More the better for strong character when they aren't indoctrinated with the liberal-socialists brain-washing muck they call 'public education' but is really brain-washing young vulnerable brains into American-hating liberals and socialists. Go President Trump! He is guaranteed re-election because anything liberals do, seem to backfire on them lately! But still, vote in person for President Trump, that's the only way to guarantee America's way of life. More young 30 somethings are pro-Trump than aren't now... esp. when they've been locked down by the liberals power hungry abusive state leaders! And they have seen what happens when liberals rule the roost for too long!

    A day or two ago a moderator mentioned it appears persons with type O blood seem to have an advantage over those type A blood. He interviewed a doctor who sort of explained why. He then asked how many types there are. She never mentioned there positive and negatives to each type or type B positive which I have. I believe there i also type AB. I am sure of my type having ben a professional Plasma donor as well as donating blood numerous times until they refused me due to the blood pressure RX I was taking. To me this is an example of reasons to take some of the "XPURTS" on TV

    Don Crumbley's post -today - is a must read. I had just completed my first and I though my last patrol on a WWII Balao Class WWII Submarine and was in Nuclear Power School to become part of Hyman Rickovers Nuclear Submarine force and watched the Movietone reel with 24 classmates ( class 59-2 Section 5 ) If memory serves the general consensus was "Bull ****!!!) Now it appears he was either a Prophet or had studied history and knew it always repeats when you exercise Einstein's definition of Insanity. The question is what has to be corrected FIRST? Re-educate the Media ?, Defund the INDOCTRINATION Mills? aka Harvard, Yale, etc. Or stand up and join the Revolution during the coming Depression if the media wins?

    I'm pretty sure the IRS has thoroughly gone through Trump's tax returns, and did so when he became a candidate for POTUS. That said, I don't know what the democRATs expect to find to use against him.
