PRAYERS FOR PEACE

Our prayers for peace to come back to Kenosha, Wisconsin, which has been struck by violent protests, rioting, and fires in the wake of the police shooting of Jacob Blake, a 29-year-old black man. He’s hospitalized after being shot several times when he reportedly resisted arrest and leaned into an SUV with his children inside. It’s a terrible situation, and certainly the last thing we needed at this time. We also pray for Blake's recovery.

The next-to-last things we needed were a bunch of politicians rushing to judgment to accuse the police of being racists before there was an investigation, and a mob of radicals burning down the town in the name of “justice.” If an investigation finds that the shooting was due to poor training or excessive force, then there should be a price to pay. But “justice” isn’t achieved by stirring up more racial divisions before you know the facts, or by allowing rioters to burn down and loot businesses that had nothing to do with it.

Those who presume to know the motives of the Kenosha police should also know that just hours before in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, three officers were seriously wounded in a very similar situation when two suspects leaned into their car, then turned around holding guns they’d retrieved and started firing.

EMERGENCY USE APPROVED

Sunday, President Trump announced that the FDA had okayed emergency use of convalescent plasma treatment for COVID-19. It involves injecting coronavirus patients with the liquid portion of blood containing coronavirus antibodies. Trump said studies have shown it can reduce the coronavirus mortality rate by 35% in patients under 80 and called it a “major advance.” He urged anyone who had been diagnosed with it and recovered to go to coronavirus.gov and sign up to donate plasma.

Naturally, by the next day, some news outlets were already running stories downplaying the effectiveness of the treatment. It’s too bad; think how many people might have been saved if only Trump hadn’t praised it.

LATE-STAGE TDS

Late-stage Trump Derangement Syndrome does terrible things to the brain. Monday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi went on an insane rant, blasting Senate Republicans as “enemies of the state” and “domestic enemies to our voting system” because they aren’t going along with her $25 billion emergency funding bill for the Post Office and think (correctly) and voting by mail is a recipe for fraud. Pelosi thinks this is an emergency because she believes (as the media like to say, “without evidence”) that President Trump is trying to rig the election by sabotaging the Post Office and stealing all the mailboxes that ballots might be dropped into.

As the Postmaster General has explained, the removal of underutilized mailboxes has been going on for years, and all efficiency measures have been delayed until after the election, since government efficiency seems to panic Democrats. Also, the Post Office is fully funded through 2021 and doesn’t need emergency funds. Americans suffering through endless coronavirus lockdowns, mostly in blue states, do need emergency funds, but the Speaker can’t be bothered to pass that. I understand she’s already preoccupied with a new crisis: Trump is trying to undermine the election by stealing socks from her dryer.

POINTLESS

Remember what we’ve learned from Joe Biden and the Democrats: We must always trust “science!” Scientists are always right, and if they say we need to shut down the economy for months, then we have to do it because to question the science is to be a “science denier” since science never changes with the discovery of new facts.

Oh, by the way, you know all those coronavirus antibody tests that the Dems made such a huge deal over? Turns out they’re pretty much pointless.

INEXCUSABLE LIE

Of all the debunked lies about Donald Trump repeated at the Democratic Convention, the most prominent and inexcusable had to be Joe Biden’s claim that he decided to run for President upon hearing Trump say there were “very fine people” among the violent neo-Nazis in Charlottesville. In fact, Trump never said that (he said he was sure there were very fine people on both sides of the debate about removing Confederate monuments, but the white nationalists and neo-Nazis should be “condemned totally.”)

So Trump never defended the white nationalists in Charlottesville. But here’s a fact: the organizer of that rally just endorsed Joe Biden:

CONSPIRACY THEORY CHECK

A reader commented that during Biden’s convention speech, his breast pocket handkerchief had three points and he was wearing a flag pin, but afterward, there was no flag pin and only one handkerchief point; a clue that the speech was prerecorded. But we checked the video on YouTube, and the handkerchief and pin remained unchanged from the speech through to Biden watching the fireworks show.

So we rule that there’s nothing there. Although it was nice to see Democrats shooting off fireworks that weren’t aimed at police officers.

CONGRATULATIONS

Congratulations to Danbury, Connecticut, for its new tourist attraction: the John Oliver Memorial Sewage Plant:

Now, where do I go to see the Stephen Colbert Toxic Waste Dump? Oh, that's right: weeknights on CBS.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT

In case you missed it: The Trump White House released an aggressive agenda for a second term. Here’s a closer look at what Trump wants to do, and let’s hope he gets a GOP House so it can actually be done.

ABORTION NEWS

Wonder why leftists like then-California Attorney General Kamala Harris were so desperate to prosecute, gag and imprison the undercover reporters who exposed Planned Parenthood? To keep things like this from ever being seen by the public:

Check out the newly-unsealed video of Planned Parenthood employees admitting in testimony under oath that they used paperwork loopholes to evade federal felony charges for performing partial-birth abortions, and how they alter abortion procedures to harvest higher-quality human body parts to sell to testing labs.

Speaking of Kamala and abortion, in 2018, she put out this outrageous tweet: “We must keep fighting to defend and expand on the progress made for women’s rights and reproductive health, not pass a 20-week abortion ban.”

That tweet has since racked up a number of responses, many from parents posting photos of their 20-week-old babies in the womb or born alive prematurely.

    When will these young black men ever learn that they should respect and obey the police? This could have been about if the man would have stopped and followed the police officers’ direction. Now we need the fire department to turn their fire hoses on the rift raft destroying the city and wash them right out of town. This is ridiculous that every time one of these incidents happen the police are blamed and innocent people lose their lives and livelihood. It may be time to start using much more severe force to end this wickedness.

    Why do these people refuse to do what the police tells them to do, and then run? How long will it take them to learn that they are supposed to obey . Just obey, and then if you're shot you have reason to complain. I know there are bad cops just like there are bad people in all walks of life, and that's awful, but I have no doubt that police now days are sick and tired of having to do the same old thing over and over, and having to face terrible consequences if something goes wrong. They don't have the amount of people supporting them that those idiot marching ignoramus crooks do.

    EVERYONE needs to be AWARE of how then Vice-President Biden totally EXPOSED Seal Team 6 after killing Osama Bin Laden. This is FACTUAL!! PLEASE look into it - and even make sure the Trump campaign knows about it. AMERICANS NEED TO KNOW!! Thank you! I sincerely appreciate you (and your daughter!!) https://youtu.be/lMA1T9QWEl4

    If you will send me an email, I'll send you the article! ALL AMERICANS NEED TO KNOW. I think the article says that SIXTEEN members of Seal Team 6 were killed because of BIDEN'S revealing!!

    Happy Birthday by the way.

    Question: Why is it that this country hasn't instituted vote by phone. Hear me out now.

    People of course must register to vote, just as we do now, but at registration you provide your finger print and/or facial recognition, which for most people will already be on file. Our phones already have that technology built in. You then log into a "secure" website (that maybe the biggest challenge) and vote. The blow back of course would be "then the government has my ID and knows who I am". They already do with drivers license, SSN, etc. This method could substantially increase turnout and reduce fraud. Of course vote in person would still be available.

    Regarding the worship of science as it exists today, there was a time when the very best science by the leading thinkers of the day assured us the the sun revolved around the earth. When you make an idol of something, it is very hard to dismiss the belief as new evidence advances knowledge.

    Some one needs to check the numbers for streaming the RNC 2020 convention, the neilson ratings show that there were more people viewing the democratic party convention last week than the RNC...these numbers are NOT correct. If you add up all the people watching via streaming, I guarantee there are many more people who watched the Republicans than the PATHETIC DEMONRATS.
    GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!

    Donna Brasile has been the poster women for the DNC she is everything the DNC wants this country to be ignorant, self pity, bombastic, uncivil, ungrateful, production of hate, dishonest and she becomes a phony when she tries to act like a Real American a person that builds good character, creates good will, and promotes America in a positive way; when she is telling people to go to Hell or cheating on a debate or howling like an animal with rabbies that is when she is real.

    These police shootings of black men all seem to take place because the victim did NOT stop and do as he was told. Maybe high schools ought to have training for teenagers to "do as you are told by the cops".

    Although not one to believe in the dreams one thinks are from God, there was a pastor who said he dreamed that November would be a month to "brace yourselves" and saw helmets from China and Russia here. He thinks that was a warning from God. It gave me pause. So, I decided to add that to my prayers and pray that Communist countries won't take advantage of our rioting and division and our election. I have friends who believe we are in the tribulation now. Only God knows. We've had a stupendous 2 nights of the RNC Convention! I don't think it could have been done any better! So we'll continue to pray for this nation's safety and fair election and many to humble themselves and pray for another 4 years.
