    I’m so confused right now. I see signs all over saying black lives matter. I’m just trying to figure out which black lives matter. It’s not black cops. They don’t seem to matter. It’s not my black conservative friends. They are told to shut the **** up if they know what’s best for them by their black counterparts. It’s not black business owners. Their property does not mean anything. It’s not blacks who fought in the military. Their statues are destroyed by the black lives matter protesters with disdain. So which black lives matter again?

    If we had White History Month, we’d be racists. If we had any organization for only whites to ‘advance’ OUR lives, we’d be racists. We have a Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, a Black Chamber of Commerce, and then we just have the plain Chamber of Commerce. A white woman could not be in the Miss Black American pageant, but any color can be in the Miss America pageant. If we had a college fund that only gave white students scholarships. You know we’d be racists. There are over 60 openly proclaimed Black Colleges in the US. Yet if there were ‘White colleges’, that would be a racist college. You are proud to be black, brown, yellow and orange, and you’re not afraid to announce it. But when we announce our white pride, you call us racists. You rob us, car jack us, and shoot at us. But, when a white police officer shoots a black gang member or beats up a black drug dealer running from the law and posing a threat to society, you call him a racist.Why is it that only whites can be racists?? That’s why we have LOST most of OUR RIGHTS in this country. BE PROUD TO BE WHITE!

        I don’t know who said masks prevent the transmission of the virus. But the correct way to say it is it helps in the prevention of along with social distancing, limiting time you spend with people that do not live in your household, staying home if your sick even a little, and washing your hands. Things the leaders in our communities and medical experts and scientists that went to school for an extra long time to learn about what to do to help prevent illness and that kind of stuff, tell the public they should do. Those things they say are important. Be thankful you and the people you care about are not sick. There are people all over that can get sick much easier than others. Like someone’s grandma or mom. Please just do what they say to help prevent the spread of infection. If everybody did things like wear masks when they are told it will help, maybe the numbers of sick people would not be growing. I’m ok with maybe. Whatever we need to do to stop this horribleness. How sad we can’t pull together and stop advertising how dumb beIng cautious about the spread of infection is. People see what you post here and how people all over think wearing a mask does not matter. Those people who do not have enough information to make a good decision have their ignorance reinforced by others and the number of people that are infected keep growing. Encourage each other to do what we are told we should do. It isn’t hurting to try to slow it down and do the right thing. Wear a mask in public. I want my life back. We need to try to stop this in every way you do gwe can. We all hate wearing masks. Maybe if we all sucked at up and dealt with the uncomfortableness of masks, we would get to a time we would not need masks quicker. Why encourage those that do not wear the mask in believing they are right in what they are not doing. Say thank you to those are trying to do the right thing, encourage and support each other

    Woody Guthrie was a vocal supporter of Communism and was sympathetic to their causes. “This Land is Your Land” was written as a Marxist response to “God Bless America.” He wrote this song as a retort, at first sarcastically calling it “God Blessed America for Me.” It sounds like the soccer team is making more than just a political statement.

    We are not talking about the extreme left but American liberals. Socialism is not the only terrible idea the left is promoting. “The left isn’t turning to socialism just because its members think it’s more equitable than capitalism but also because they seek revenge against America’s founding generation and its successor beneficiaries. They want to eradicate the Western tradition that spawned our unique American culture because it allegedly led to continental larceny against Native Americans, is in irredeemable moral debt over slavery, and is forever culpable for oppressing minorities and women through white privilege and the inherent exploitation of capitalism.” These kinds of revolutions don’t end well for anyone — including the nihilists who engineer them.

      The Associated Press reported that an SUV carrying Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds hit a Black Lives Matter protester who was trying to block her vehicle as she was leaving an event in northern Iowa. Video released on KCRG-TV’s website shows the protester, identified as Jaylen Cavil, stepping in front of the vehicle as it was in motion. Cavil told the Des Moines Register “I 100% think they intentionally hit me.”

      A press release from the Iowa State Patrol says, “a demonstrator approached which caused the Governor’s vehicle to slow. The Demostrator stopped short and to the side of the vehicle. As the vehicle began to turn away from the protester and onto the roadway, the demonstrator intentionally stepped in front of the slowly moving vehicle.”

      The Patrol also says that there was little or no physical reaction to the contact he created. Troopers on scene made contact with the demonstrator and advised him to discontinue his efforts to block traffic. No injuries were reported. According to the release, demonstrators began shouting obscenities at responding personnel and proceeded to block members of the Iowa State Patrol from leaving the area.

      John Wayne Was a Pussy
      In WWII, John Wayne received a deferment claiming that he had a wife and three kids to support while other actors, younger and older, in similar circumstances hurried to enlist and fight for their country.
      While promising to enlist he ignored additional summonses from his draft board until his studio could intervene on his behalf.

    Only ONE local media outlet covered this when it happened.
    Shannon Christian died after hours of torture, sustaining traumatic brain injuries and suffering injuries to her vagina, anus, and mouth due to repeated sexual assault. Before killing her, in an effort to remove DNA evidence, her attackers poured bleach down her throat and scrubbed her body with it.
    She was bound with curtains and strips of bedding, with her face covered with a trash bag and her body stashed in five large trash bags. These were placed inside a residential waste disposal unit and covered with sheets and garbage from Wendy’s. The medical examiner said there was evidence that Christian slowly suffocated to death.
    Her boyfriend was sodomised with an object and also raped. he was also tortured for hours, then they shot him in the head.

Nothing could be further from the truth, just ask the men and women of CBP who protect this Nation day and night, they know full well the new border wall system works.

    The new border wall system also serves as a vital reminder that public health begins with border security. Last year, CBP was confronted with an unprecedented national security and humanitarian crisis when hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens arrived on our Southern border.

    The border wall system also plays a critical role by reducing human smuggling. Human smugglers are all too willing to abandon men, women, and children – taking their money while leaving them alone to die of dehydration, exposure, or drowning.

    The border wall system is the backbone of our border security posture. Open borders play right into the hands of the cartels. Without the border wall system, crime and gang activity goes up as drugs, and other contraband make their way north into the homeland.

    The new border wall system uses technology and lighting, in addition to a physical barrier, to stop or slow illegal cross-border traffic between the ports of entry. The new border wall system denies, deters and impedes the unlawful entry of people and contraband into the United States. By slowing or stopping illegal activity, border wall systems increase the likelihood of an appropriate law enforcement response and resolution. It’s a simple fact that is borne out by the data – walls work.

    New York presently reports 6,413 deaths physically in long-term care facilities. Adding hospital deaths, which the state refuses to report, would likely double or triple that number. Similar policies in New Jersey, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Illinois, Michigan, and Pennsylvania – where the state health secretary moved his own mother out of a nursing home while sending infectious patients in – produced similar outcomes.

    New York’s policy was implemented via a March 25 advisory that said: “No resident shall be denied re-admission or admission to the [nursing home] solely based on a confirmed or suspected diagnosis of COVID-19. [Nursing homes] are prohibited from requiring a hospitalized resident who is determined medically stable to be tested for COVID-19 prior to admission or readmission.” “Unsafe transfers will increase the risk of transmission in post-acute and long-term care facilities which will ultimately only serve to increase the return flow back to hospitals, overwhelming capacity, endangering more healthcare personnel, and escalating the death rate.”

    2 percent of the long-term care population has died with COVID-19 – but over 12 percent in Connecticut, 10 percent in New Jersey, 9 percent in Massachusetts, and about 4 percent in Illinois. Even New York’s dishonest underreported number is 4.4 percent of the state’s long-term care population. We’ve seen over 80 percent of COVID deaths among seniors.

    60 percent of both nursing home deaths and total COVID-19 deaths occurred in just seven blue states with about 20 percent of the U.S. population: New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Illinois, and Michigan. The governors in each of these states ignored federal guidelines and pursued some version of the policy of admitting infectious patients to nursing homes.

    The meltdown in nursing homes, which excluding New York (which deliberately underreports) now account for over 55 percent of deaths with COVID. The House Democrats’ goal was to blame these high death rates on President Trump – but the blame should belong squarely to the handful of governors who presided over these disasters.

    Even if guns were to vanish from all non-police or military hands is that lethal force would still be needed. Knives, clubs, tire irons, and a whole host of other weapons would still require lethal force to stop, meaning police are still going to have to kill people.
