TRUMP'S COMMENTS REVIEWED

Sometimes I feel as if it’s become my job by default to explain jokes to liberals who have completely lost their senses of humor since Trump’s election.

Among a number of things in that Axios interview that were taken out of context was President Trump’s comment about Ghislaine Maxwell, wealthy pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s former lover and alleged fellow human trafficker who was recently placed in a New York jail cell. Trump said he knew nothing about the case personally, but “I wish her well, whatever it is.”

The media leaped on that as “Trump’s shocking support for Ghislaine Maxwell.” Those of us not suffering from TDS took it as a sarcastic joke, a reference to the skepticism about Epstein “committing suicide” once he was locked away in a New York jail cell. We assumed he meant, “I wish her well in staying alive.” But liberals are no longer able to write or recognize a joke, so they took it literally (as when they thought Trump was literally inviting Russians to hack into Hillary’s email devices that had already been taken offline, Bleachbitted and smashed with hammers.) As Peter Theil observed, Trump supporters take him seriously but not literally, while the media take him literally, but not seriously.

Maybe if they ever looked at a conservative news or commentary site, they would know that one of the top-selling T-shirts for several weeks now has been one that reads, “Ghislaine Maxwell didn’t commit suicide.”

And FYI to the media: Trump was on record years ago as slamming Epstein as a creep, while it was heroes of yours like Bill Clinton who were actually hanging out with him. I haven’t talked much about this because it’s so unsavory that I’d like to see more hard evidence and witness testimony first. But most media outlets don’t have such high standards, yet they’ve been so silent about the recently released documents connecting Epstein to Clinton that even Bill Maher is calling them out.

POLITICAL ADVANTAGE OVER PROTECTING LIFE?

Doctors are now speaking up to report their own successes in treating COVID-19 (Chinese) coronavirus with hydroxychloroquine, zinc and the antibiotic Zithromax, and more international studies are indicating that it is effective. So is the rising evidence in its favor actually causing Trump haters to ratchet up their opposition to it, with social media sites banning even actual doctors relating their personal findings as “dangerous misinformation”? Would someone actually hate Trump so much that they would discourage the use of a drug that might save lives if admitting that it worked might make Trump look correct?

Matt Margolis at PJ Media makes that case.

It is hard to believe that anyone would be so twisted as to prioritize political advantage over protecting human life. But then, we just had the mayor of Portland lecture rioters not to try to murder people by burning down a building with human beings locked inside because Trump might use the footage in his campaign commercials.

I wonder, has anyone done a test to see if hydroxychloroquine might be effective in treating Trump Derangement Syndrome?

STATE OF THE "NEWS" MEDIA, 2020

Trump says MS-13 gang members are rapists and murderers. Media: “Trump says all Mexicans are rapists and murderers! He’s a RACIST!”

Trump says there are very fine people on both sides of the issue of removing Confederate monuments. Media: “Trump says some white nationalists are very fine people! He’s a RACIST!”

Joe Biden asks a black interviewer if he’s a junkie and suggests that blacks have a monolithic culture and are basically all alike. Media: “…”

OPRAH'S RACIST RANT 

Attention, white people who are working two or three jobs to make ends meet, living in a mobile home, driving a beat-up old pickup, or struggling on a fixed income: powerful billionaire and primo American success story Oprah Winfrey would like you to admit your “white privilege.” Just don’t come to her mansion to do it in person. You won’t make it past the guard gate.

FED UP

I’ve been writing about how large companies such as Trader Joe’s, Ford and the Wall Street Journal have started to get fed up with the demands of the leftist grievance mob and stand up to them. Even some liberal politicians who are alarmed at how long the rioting has gone on are starting to say enough is enough. And the left’s in-your-face hectoring is also starting to grate on average Americans, who have had just about enough of holding their tongues and taking it. The wokesters' sheer obnoxiousness has squandered any sympathy most people might have initially had for their views.

This video illustrates what happened when a foul-mouthed, hectoring harpy threw hot coffee in a man’s face because he wasn’t wearing a mask – outdoors – while eating a burrito.

After the incident, the man summed up what must be going through a rising number of Americans’ minds right now: “…Everybody is scared of ‘Ken and Karen,’ and I’m not. I don’t care anymore.” Never has the phrase, “You brought this on yourself” been more applicable.

FROM OUR "PROBLEMS WITH MAIL-IN VOTING ARE A MYTH" FILE

A new report by New York’s Board of Elections shows that in the state’s Democratic primary, out of 403,103 mail-in ballots cast in New York City, 84,108 ballots (21% of the total) were not counted or were invalidated for defects such as arriving late or lacking a postmark or voter signature. This is the system that Democrats want to impose in every race nationwide.

Also of interest: New York’s primary was June 23rd, and this is how long it’s taken to find this out. These sorts of delays have given rise to a conspiracy theory that the Democrats want mail-in vote chaos to drag out the Presidential vote count because if there’s no clear winner by January 20th (steel yourself), House Speaker Nancy Pelosi would become President. That might sound crazy, but it’s actually been floated by Harvard Professor and MSNBC commentator Laurence Tribe.

Note: Yes, I realize that none of the phrases “Harvard professor,” “MSNBC commentator” or “Laurence Tribe” rule out something being crazy.

"GOP ADVOCATE?!?"

See Nancy Pelosi get so angry and discombobulated that she accused Judy Woodruff of being a “GOP advocate” just because the PBS reporter asked her a question that wasn’t a complete puffball. I wonder how Nancy would hold up if she ever had to face the regular barrage of hostile accusations that President Trump gets from the roomful of actual Democratic Party advocates known as the White House Press Corps.

    All of this far left stuff and the craziness in hating my president, Donald Trump,
    no matter what he does, reminds me how the religious leaders hated Jesus for healing ill, crippled and demon possessed people on the sabbath. I marvel that the ones who should have been rejoicing at those healings were so threatened and jealous they plotted to kill the Healer, Jesus. I pray for my president and vice president every day!

    RE: Nancy Pelosi becoming President if election results aren't completed by January 20.2021.
    I'm no legal scholar, but I believe that scenario is invalid. The current President Donald Trump would still be President and Pence would still be Vice President. In fact, before Pelosi could become President, both Trump and Pence would either have to be incapacitated or deceased. It's my understanding from reading the law that is the only way the Speaker can become President. If both are still viable, they would remain in office until the results are decided. Not to worry though, neither of the above scenarios will come to fruition. Donald Trump and Mike Pence will win in November!

    A Facebook friend of mine in Michigan was sent five (5) mail-in ballots to their two-person household. Two were for their two daughters who are no longer living at home and had never voted at their address. The fifth one was for the man who lived on their house before them. Obviously there are no problems with just sending out mail-in ballots to everyone!

    I live in Nevada. At a doctor appointment last week I asked my doctor about hydroxychloroquine.
    He responded that the Governor of Nevada has banned the sale of it for any reason within the state.

    He wrote a prescription for a female patient that actually needed it and she had to drive to Arizona to get it filled.

    We need to get new politicians that have some "common sense".

    When Democrats say that they want to "distribute the wealth", they mean all others except themselves. Will Oprah give up her wealth, will the Obama's or how about the Pelosi's?

    Hi! I just want to say I’m very disappointed that in Ohio we cannot get a prescription for hydroxychloroquine. And that frightens me because if my husband or I get the Chinese virus, that is what I would want to take. I think it’s wrong to make it illegal at all, since it’s been used for many years. And regarding Oprah. Years ago I wouldn’t miss her show but I’m so disappointed in her now I would never watch her. She is so wrong about white privilege. I grew up with no dad in Southeast Texas with a mom who worked hard as a nurse in the third and fourth shift until she died of cancer when I was 16. I got a job and I finished high school barely. So don’t talk to me about white privilege because I had zero! Thank you for all you do, I love to read your newsletters and watch your show!

    As a sports fan If I ever consider buying a ticket The event needs to be a sporting event If I want to watch misery I will drive thru an Urban community I do not want to watch athletes perform political stunts. I watch sports to see if the plan they practiced can be achieved against the opponent and I watch the the counter move by the opponent. That what I paid the price to watch a sporing event. Most of them are uneducated about America I salute them for making a living and paying taxes, If they bring a cross out along side the flag go ahead and kneel otherwise stand up for the flag.`Don't worry I won't hold my breath i just don't care i won't be watching.

    The people that embrace socialism or communism or the party of Democratic socialism are lazy without drive to build or create a healthy lifestyle for itself the goal the daily routine is to have people that worked for a good lifestyle want them to give them the assets they have worked for. Leftist will name call ambitious people racist or other lying names to demean people willing to not be a leftist

    Is there any way that President Trump could put forth an execute order stating, no mail-in voting allowed in General Election except for Absentee Ballots, and to only allow Absentee Ballots by military personnel who are out of the country on active duty? Isn't that the way the U.S. Constitution is stated anyway? Plus Absentee Ballots ARE different than mail-in ballots. They are to be signed in front of Rotary Public which can be found in any bank, but mail-in ballots are nothing more than illegitimate pieces of paper with no proof the person who mails it in is alive or dead, right? And the liberal Democrats claim that 'minority people don't have an equal chance to vote in person', is BS! Those same 'minority people' are probably illegal aliens anyway, and should NOT be able to vote UNTIL they are full U.S. Citizens. Also, minority peoples have no problem cashing in their food stamps, if they are on them, nor do they have any problems finding and buying the most expensive smart phones or other social media gadgets, so I am sure they can certainly find where to go to vote in person and have all the proper id and credentials that they can vote, legally, in person. Most polling place are accessible to everyone, regardless of color, gender, or mobility. So I have no doubt that these 'minority voters' the Dems try to fool people into believing they can't vote in person, are the illegals living in this country. Or mostly those minorities who have passed away, and the Dems. want to use their names to illegally get their candidate elected, like what happened when obama was elected BOTH times, I bet most the names were of dead people, as voter rolls have not been purged! Even if a person, any person, who may be suffering, unfortunately, with the chinese viruse, Covid thing, would certainly be able to leave their home using their proper protective personal equipment, mask and gloves, etc., to go and vote in person, because if a person is not allowed to vote because they are so-called sick from the virus, that in itself is illegal, and that all govt. leaders should be held accountable for preventing a sick person from voting in person, i.e. isn't those people who are sick with the virus in the minority now? As the majority of people are NOT sick. Or here is another idea, put up polling stations with the portable polling machines in places where people who are suffering from the virus, i.e. in the hospital, or in a nursing home, can have official election board members present to oversee a legitimate in-person polling station, so no one at all has to use mail-in voting, except for the Absentee ballots that I have already mentioned earlier in my opinion.

    I read your comments and they are all right on target! And I loved the comment that Trump's supporters take him seriously but not literally--but the media takes him literally but not seriously. How true that is! When the President said Mexico would pay for the wall--I never expected that Mexico would write us a check for the wall. And Trump's critics mocked that promise. But what I expected that through trade, tariffs or some other way, Mexico would pay for that wall and ironically it happened. When President Trump negotiated with the president of Mexico to put Mexican troops on their border that in itself helped pay for that wall, since we did not have the expense of putting our own troops on our border. That was a brilliant move.

    I do still see some of the pro-hydroxychloroquine, zinc and the antibiotic Zithromax videos--maybe the censors haven't gotten to them yet. I also read about them in newsletters I get--fb can't ban them, and, to date, the email managers don't delete any of the info in them. I haven't read where the fda has taken the hydroxychloroquine off the list of "cannot use--it's off label" list.

    pelosi in a press conference would be a hoot!! Of course, the "press corp" would go back to mealy-mouth non-questions. Any question not on a prepared list would send her over the edge. I've been thinking--if she is not re-elected in Nov, (Please, please, please, I pray the voters in her district don't give her a single vote) she would no longer be speaker, problem solved. And, even if she IS re-elected, if the house doesn't vote for her to be speaker (not sure when they choose who will be) she wouldn't have that position in Jan, either.

    I am very dismayed by the lengths that some politicians are willing to utilize to destroy our country. The mayor of Portland-why would you allow this-what is okay about murder in your city? Destruction of your city? Allowing the citizens to suffer without any relief in sight? You have abandoned the people who pay your salary. We need to get the word out-My biggest concern is that people who do not read/listen to/watch Hannity; Carlson; The Five (although I am giving that up-I cannot stand to hear Juan anymore) etc. Those of us who are regular viewers aren't the ones who need to be reached-suggestions? The press is so blatantly biased, hypocritical, and pompous-what happened to their moral compass-if it ever existed. Last statement: The NBA made their choice-they chose China-I am not watching another game-they are China's team not ours.
