    Mostly you hear about the slaves being owned and abused. You don’t hear about the slaves being given their freedom and many acres of land to live on by their owners in payment for their loyalty to their owners. Its funny how you remember all the bad not the good.

    The only two slaves involved with Mt. Rushmore were Gutzon Borglum and his son Lincoln Borglum who created it!!!

    It’s funny how Mt Rushmore has been around since 1927, finished in 1942 and never had anyone make a statement about two slave owners. When I went to Mt Rushmore, I saw 4 Great presidents that made huge steps in our country and for our country!

    My opinion no one in this world is perfect and we all come short. I’m so proud of our President and the love he has for the United States. His speech at Mount Rushmore was fantastic and I liked how he shared a little History of these four Presidents on Mount Rushmore. If some people don’t like this Country they can always move out of the Country and live somewhere else. We need Healing and Unity and Peace among each other not chaos. We can disagree and still show Respect.

    MOSCOW — Faced with “deeply discouraging” 2020 polls, Vladimir Putin is “seriously considering” not running Donald J. Trump for reelection, according to Kremlin sources.

    The Russian President had been holding out hope that Trump could somehow stop his precipitous slide in popularity, but a recent roundup of polls showing Joe Biden crushing him in several battleground states made Putin realize that “his guy is a lost cause,” one source said.

    According to Kremlin insiders, Putin is actively mulling a number of possible Republican replacements for Trump, including Representative Devin Nunes, Senator Mitch McConnell, and Senator Rand Paul, but he does not relish the idea of making the switch.

    “You have to understand, Putin has spent years training Trump to be so obedient,” the source said. “It’s going to be hard breaking in a new one.”

    Q: What did the Confederacy stand for?

    A: Rather than interpreting, let’s go directly to the words of the Confederacy’s Vice President, Alexander Stephens. In his “Cornerstone Speech” on March 21, 1861, he stated “The Constitution… rested upon the equality of races. This was an error. Our new government is founded upon exactly the opposite idea; its foundations are laid, its corner-stone rests, upon the great truth that the negro is not equal to the white man; that slavery subordination to the superior race is his natural and normal condition. This, our new government, is the first, in the history of the world, based upon this great physical, philosophical, and moral truth.”

    Someone told me that due to the weather patterns, the virus will not travel south of State Street. So, I look to be safe here on the south side.

    Muslims aren’t a religion. They are a political cult that maintain and control their people with “religion”. VOTE ALL the Dems OUT in November. Then we will work on TERM LIMITS and take our government back!

      Muslims are not a race. The word “Muslim” itself connects to followers of Islam, a world religion — not a “race.”

    This more rage from the media, this was stated in 2016: “I believe we have at least 1 million Muslim eligible voters in this country. We have to register every single Muslim to vote in 2016. The Muslim vote can be the swing vote in major states,” CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad said at the Muslim American Society (MAS) and Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) annual conference in Chicago.

    According to the Des Moines Police Department, officers came to the statehouse where multiple protesters were gathered to arrest individuals in connection to damage done during a protest at Hy-Vee on 3221 SE 14th St. on June 20.

    “When detectives tried to take prisoners out of the statehouse, the crowd followed them outside and, at the one point, swarmed them and attacked the officers,” Des Moines police Sgt. Paul Parizek said. “It’s probably one of the most violent attacks I’ve seen on police in a long time. They were tackled to the ground. They were ripped off people they were trying to arrest.”

    A protester assaulted a police officer in Des Moines by jumping on the officers back, placed him in a chokehold and wrestled him to the ground. The authorities said the officers was “disarmed of his duty handgun,” Law enforcement discharged pepper spray during the event and a total of 17 arrests were made including two minors.

    If you want to make people safer, you have to make it riskier for criminals to harm their victims. More police, better training, longer prison sentences, letting victims defend themselves are all things that consistently show that work. For some reason, the politicians who run so many of America’s cities think that the solution is the opposite. It is a prescription for disaster, and the most vulnerable among us will be the victims.

    Having a gun is by far the safest course of action when you are confronted by a criminal. It is also the most vulnerable in our society — namely blacks who live in high-crime cities — who benefit the most from having the option to be able to defend themselves.

    Yet, the politicians who wanted to disband the police and who ordered the police to stand down during the riots are the same people who want to ban civilians owning guns for protection.

    We look for Democratic politicians who have reprimanded the rioters. After several nights of riots, Minnesota Sen. Tina Smith, a Democrat, egged on demonstrators by calling for a continuation of the “righteous protests” and necessary routing out of “racism” that she said is endemic in Minnesota. On Thursday, not a single Democrat in the House voted for a resolution condemning acts of violence and rioting — including the “deliberate targeting of law enforcement officers,” as well as opposing the defunding of police.

    The cities where police are supposedly out of control and harming minorities have one thing in common – they are run by liberal Democrats. Indeed, almost all of them have been run exclusively by Democrats for many decades. For example, Los Angeles has only had one Republican mayor since 1961. Minneapolis and St. Paul haven’t had Republican mayors for over 45 years. As these politicians failed to protect their citizens, it is the Democratic politicians and not the police who are to blame.

    If you want to get rid of the police, that will mean no arrests, no convictions, and eventually no prisons. This change would be so far outside anything that the U.S. has ever experienced. But if it may very well cause an 80 percent or more increase in murder rates.

    U.S. Department of Justice survey data on crimes reported to police shows that blacks are actually more likely than whites to report violent crimes committed against them to the police by 9 percentage points (54 percent to 45 percent).

    Police are not the bad guys, and most Americans know that. Monmouth University surveys over the last five years reveal that black Americans nationwide have become more satisfied with their local police departments. The percentage satisfied reached 72 percent in June — a rate that is now identical to that for whites.

    What does defunding the police really mean? Well, just look at the looting and violence that happened when police were ordered to stand down during recent riots. Everyone agrees that Minneapolis officer Derek Chauvin behaved very wrongly in killing George Floyd. Despite there still being no evidence yet that the officer was racist, it is assumed that racism motivated the white cop’s actions.
