YOU BROKE IT, YOU BOUGHT IT
The Governor of Minnesota wants US taxpayers via FEMA to pick up the tab for all the destruction caused by protesters whom the Democrats who run Minneapolis allowed to riot, burn and loot for weeks after one of their own cops killed George Floyd.
The Trump Administration has now responded to the Governor's request. In short:
“You broke it, you bought it.”
TIME TO STOCK UP
Glad to see that many other people agree with my suggestion that conservatives stock up on Goya products in response to the left’s attempt to boycott the company because its CEO said positive things about President Trump. They’ve created the hashtag #BuycottGoya.
There’s a great comment on that here, along with a couple of hilarious memes illustrating the left’s hypocrisy in trying to destroy a company founded by Hispanic immigrants because they claim Trump is a racist.
NEVER LET A GOOD CRISIS GO TO WASTE DEPT.:
Never Let A Crisis Go To Waste Dept: United Teachers Los Angeles, a major L.A. teachers’ union, is refusing to go along with reopening schools unless a list of their policy demands is met. Among them: defunding the local police, a moratorium on charter schools, passing national “Medicare For All,” several new state taxes on the wealthy, and a federal bailout of the local school system. They forgot to ask for free lifetime passes to Disneyland and for clouds to start raining lemonade.
STONE STRONGLY DENIES FACEBOOK REPORT
You might have heard that Facebook and Instagram had de-platformed Roger Stone based on a report tying his posts to fake pages and white supremacist groups. Indeed, when I searched for this story on Google, all I got back in the first two pages of results were stories echoing that narrative.
Which is interesting, since Stone has already responded by denying it strongly and saying he plans to bring a lawsuit against the leftist group that created what he calls a “bogus” report that is “about 80% false, and the 20% that is accurate is misrepresented as somehow being nefarious or deceptive.” He added, “I have no choice but to bring a lawsuit VS these hucksters who are the same conmen who formulated the phony ‘Russian-troll-farm’ narrative.”
Incidentally, Stone gave his side of the story on Parler.com, which is quickly shaping up to be the only social media outlet left on the Internet that actually allows free speech.
Interesting News: CNN has gone so far off the rails, substituting leftist opinionating and Trump-bashing for news, that even their own former staffers are complaining about it.
Here’s a terrifying lesson for all American voters on how quickly things can spiral out of control and your rights can spiral down the toilet if you are foolish enough to give both legislative and executive control to today’s Democrats. In the last election, Virginia voters gave Democrats full control. Look at what’s happened to their state in just the short time since…
Incidentally, this article doesn’t even get around to mentioning the draconian gun laws that resulted in massive protests that the Democrats ignored, because protests of things they support don’t matter.
Dispatch From the Frontlines of “Progressivism”: A Vermont city council voted to create an “emergency” Black Lives Matter mural, but rejected a mural featuring the American flag and the phrase “Liberty and justice for all.” Bonus: its sponsor was branded a racist, even though he’s a former public defender who’s spent the past five years raising thousands of dollars to support orphans in Uganda
I’m sorry to have to report two untimely deaths. Benjamin Keough, the 27-year-old son of Lisa Marie Presley and grandson of Elvis Presley, died Sunday of a self-inflicted gunshot.
And the beautiful actress Kelly Preston, wife of John Travolta and star of such films as “Jerry McGuire” and “Twins,” has died at 57 after a two-year battle with breast cancer. The couple have two children, having lost their 16-year-old son Jett to Kawasaki’s disease in 2009. You can read John’s moving statement at this link.
My sincere condolences to both families and I hope you’ll remember them in your prayers.
WESTERN CULTURE IS UNDER ATTACK
The latest proof that statue-smashing vandals are not attacking symbols of racism but just trying to destroy all Western culture and history:
In Boston, someone set fire to a statue of the Virgin Mary at St. Peter Parish. The pastor, Father John Curran spoke for many of us when he said, "I was shocked. (There's) disappointment, sadness. The image of Our Lady is so important for us and our faith. It's such a contradiction to her love. Mary would never desecrate anyone, never hurt anyone, only offer them the peace and love of Jesus. I think that's where it really hits us in our hearts."
Meanwhile, in Denmark, the beloved statue of Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale heroine, the Little Mermaid, was defaced with graffiti reading, “Racist fish.” That would be idiotic enough by itself (she wasn’t even a whitefish), but this comes amid news that Disney is planning a live-action version of “The Little Mermaid” starring African-American singer/actress, Halle Bailey.
The Hans Christian Anderson story these people should be most afraid of is “The Emperor’s New Clothes.” That’s the one where everyone is too terrified to say what they’re really thinking about the Emperor who’s strutting around like he’s better than everyone else until one child innocently speaks the truth (“The Emperor is naked”), and he finally gets the backlash of ridicule and rejection that he richly deserves. Sound like anyone you know?
