This is an example of what happens when journalists and politicians run with reports that aren’t accurate.
The evidence proves the claims made by Biden and Harris to be completely false, and the initial reporting by NPR to be unreliable at best. And all this is a big reason why fewer people trust the media.
Once again, it seems Trump was correct in defending himself — and once again, the push to condemn the President backfires on Democrats and the left-wing media.
A new report by the DOI Inspector General clears Trump of any wrongdoing regarding the Lafayette Park incident in 2020.
Democrat leaders like Joe Biden and Kamala Harris claimed Trump used force against the American people “for a photo op.”
This has been proven untrue, and Trump has thanked the Inspector General for the report.
It’s not the prerogative of the UN to lecture a State. They should address themselves to the United States and other members of the UN. The UN is a bloated, corrupt and partisan organization dominated by self interested parties. I could care less what they say, and applaud Gov. Abbott for his forceful reply!

I’ll teach you inbreds how to make money so you can quit being poor. try to keep up.
I sell covered calls. With volatility high as giraffe pussy you can make 4.3%+ every week selling a covered call a week. Make $125 a week ($500 a month) on a $2.9k investment because the IV makes premiums super high. I set stop loss to be the purchase price of shares less the option premium so if the price goes south I lose 0. After the first week if the stock stayed flat or failed to increase 21%, I now have realized that 4.3% premium. I then sell more calls for another 4.3% and adjust my stop loss accordingly depending on my risk tolerance. After n weeks of doing this and collecting premiums, you can adjust your stop loss such that if the asset tanks you realize 3/n, 5/n, 7/n etc. premiums.
Volatility make option premium high
Good for sellers bad for buyers
Covered calls mean you sell a call option while holding the underlying asset
I.e. for every 100 shares you buy, you can sell 1 call and be covered
I purchased 500 shares for $5.75
I then sold 5 calls with a $7 strike price that expire this Friday for $25 each
My stop loss is set at $5.50 so I sell the underlying and lose nothing because my $125 premium extends me an extra $0.25 in downside protection for each share.
I then have to watch and make sure the price doesn’t go back towards $7 because my calls are now naked. If there is an upward trend at a certain point I will buy back the 5 contracts I sold to minimize losses.
Now there are 3 things that can happen this next week:
1) the price of the asset goes up past $7 and I get exercised. My gains are capped at ($7-$5.75 + $0.25)*500 = $750 (which is 21% on my investment in one week)
2) the price of the asset goes up but not over $7, the options I sold expire worthless and I keep the stock and the $125 in premiums
3) the price of the asset goes down and my stop loss triggers closing my my stock position. I will continue to hold the naked options if the drop is significant enough as the chance of me getting assigned is low. If the price rises towards a level I am not comfortable with after having sold all my stock, I will purchase the contracts I sold for a small loss
That is all, wash rinse repeat

Maybe consider the reason for why you are so reviled by everyone instead of immediately claiming it is everyone else who is at fault.
Maybe let the things that don’t matter slide instead of neurotically bristling at every perceived slight.
Maybe swallow your pride and need for attention by not interjecting your opinions when it’s uncalled for.
You can still learn to be humble.

The online personality test said I’m:
Chaotic Neutral people believe that there ultimately is no order to anything, including their own actions. With this as their guiding principle, they tend to follow whatever their fancy tells them to. Good and evil are irrelevant when making a decision. Chaotic Neutral people are often extremely difficult to deal with. Although they promote the ideals of freedom, it is their own freedom that comes first. Chaotic Neutral individuals are free-spirited and do not enjoy the unnecessary suffering of others, but if they join a team, it is because that team’s goals happen to coincide with their own at the moment. They resent taking orders and can be very selfish in their pursuit of their personal goals. Yet their methods of achieving their goals are often disorganized, unorthodox, and almost entirely unpredictable.

I honestly hope they do the “snap”. Zuvall needs to win and reset the universe! Let’s go all the way back to Vanilla and restart with the story being written and planned out for years ahead of each expansion.
Fixing all the class issues; no longer balancing them around PVP. Remove Arena, Remove Pathfinder.
I’d also remove all stats from gear, and have all gear be cosmetic. Each class would have certain stats that you max out at level 60, and there would be no more power progression, that way tuning encounters would be super easy and power creep and level resets would no longer be issues.
Of course they would have to introduce some sort of alternate progression system that feels satisfying, but ultimately can be ignored if the player wants.
I’d also make all reputations account wide, and like Accolon suggested, flying available at the get go once you hit max level, but if you fly in a zone where you haven’t established rep with the local (insert group here), you get shot down until you’ve done the rep.
Everyone would have the option to keep their current collections, but all Achievements would be reset.
I would also remove the faction barrier. There would be factions, but players Raid, Dungeon, and Quest together. You just can’t walk into others territories without being killed by Guards.
The language barrier would be gone also, and every Race can access every Class, regardless of Lore. You want to be a Tauren Rogue, or Night Elf Warlock, knock yourself out!
Every Race would also start Faction Neutral and then pick their Faction just like the Pandaren. If you want to move a character over to the other Faction, there would be a long “betray your Faction” quest chain that ends with you now Neutral with your new Faction, and 100% Hated by your old one.

Get rid of critical race theory which divides people further and add Shop class & Home economics. Also, teach them how to budget money, change a tire, change the oil, life things that will matter.
October 23, 2021 at 2:56 pm
You don’t even know what Critical Race Theory is about. It is about the real history of the USA and doesn’t sugarcoat it for you weak-minded ‘patriots’. You probably were taught that Custer’s army was massacred by Indians at the Little Big Horn without much else added. What should have been added (and would be in a CRT-based course) was that the US Army violated the terms of a settlement with the Native Americans in South Dakota and Custer was sent to stop the Indians from revolting. He failed. There are hundreds of other incidents in our history also conveniently ignored. You probably never heard of the Tulsa race massacre in 1921 or the New York City Draft Riots and Massacre of 1863. None of that is covered in traditional US History taught in schools in the US. Why?
Why add shop class or home economics? Both were pretty much restricted to males (Shop) or females (Home ec). There is a financial literacy course that is required by Iowa law for students graduating in 2022-3 but originally it was to be in 2019 but was delayed by the Iowa Department of Education until 2021-2 and was again delayed until 2022-3. Another example of putting the cart before the horse. The conservatives wanted credit for instituting what was considered to be a great addition to the curriculum but they didn’t do their homework about what it would take to institute it. Now, it continues to be delayed. However, some schools, notably those liberal Iowa City schools, have gone ahead and developed their own Financial Literacy courses and implemented them into their graduation requirements since 2020.

If you know anything about, critical race theory, it can be seen as a form of “race-based Marxism”; they share a common conceptual framework. Critical race theory was derived from critical theory, a 20th century ideology sometimes called neo-Marxism. All you nitwits out there need to do your homework instead of jumping on the bandwagon of all the radical groups.

The 6 tenets of CRT, from the authors of the lie the is CRT.
Critical race theory (CRT)
is based on the premise that race is not a natural, biologically grounded feature of physically distinct subgroups of human beings but a socially constructed (culturally invented) category that is used to oppress and exploit people of color. Critical race theorists hold that the law and legal institutions in the United States are inherently racist insofar as they function to create and maintain social, economic, and political inequalities between whites and nonwhites, especially African Americans.
These “basic tenets” of CRT, according to the authors, include the following claims:
(1) Race is socially constructed, not biologically natural.
(2) Racism in the United States is normal, not aberrational: it is the common, ordinary experience of most people of color.
(3) Owing to what critical race theorists call “interest convergence” or “material determinism,” legal advances (or setbacks) for people of color tend to serve the interests of dominant white groups. Thus, the racial hierarchy that characterizes American society may be unaffected or even reinforced by ostensible improvements in the legal status of oppressed or exploited people.
(4) Members of minority groups periodically undergo “differential racialization,” or the attribution to them of varying sets of negative stereotypes, again depending on the needs or interests of whites.
(5) According to the thesis of “intersectionality” or “antiessentialism,” no individual can be adequately identified by membership in a single group. An African American person, for example, may also identify as a woman, a lesbian, a feminist, a Christian, and so on.
Finally, (6) the “voice of color” thesis holds that people of color are uniquely qualified to speak on behalf of other members of their group (or groups) regarding the forms and effects of racism. This consensus has led to the growth of the “legal story telling” movement, which argues that the self-expressed views of victims of racism and other forms of oppression provide essential insight into the nature of the legal system.

Tulsa race massacre:
The Tulsa race massacre took place on May 31 and June 1, 1921, when mobs of white residents (Democrats), some of whom had been deputized and given weapons by city officials, attacked Black residents and destroyed homes and businesses of the Greenwood District in Tulsa, Oklahoma, US.
The New York City draft riots (July 13–16, 1863). The Democratic Party Tammany Hall political machine had been working to enroll immigrants as U.S. citizens so they could vote in local elections and had strongly recruited Irish. In March 1863, with the war continuing, Congress passed the Enrollment Act to establish a draft for the first time, as more troops were needed. In New York City and other locations, new citizens learned they were expected to register for the draft to fight for their new country. Black men were excluded from the draft as they were largely not considered citizens.
On 29 January 1863 Colonel Patrick Edward Connor and about 200 California Volunteers attacked a Northwestern Shoshoni winter village located at the confluence of Beaver Creek and Bear River. Approximately 250 Shoshoni were slain, including 90 women and children. After the slaughter ended, some of the undisciplined soldiers went through the Indian village raping women and using axes to bash in the heads of women and children who were already dying of wounds.
Another by Democrats, but you don’t mention.
At dawn on August 21, 1863, Quantrill and his guerrillas rode into Lawrence(Kansas), where they burned much of the town and killed between 160 and 190 men and boys. This raid was the culmination of an ongoing conflict between the Free-State forces who controlled Lawrence and the proslavery partisans(Democrats) who lived in nearby Missouri.
October 25, 2021 at 6:34 am
All true except for your invention – democrats. Did you learn any of this in school? Of course you didn’t because it might hurt your feelings. CRT would have taught you about these.
October 25, 2021 at 12:06 pm
And left the truth out of it. New York draft riots were instigated by The Democratic Party Tammany Hall political machine.
The Democratic Party of Oklahoma has been the prevailing force in politics for most of the state’s history. Since 1907 Democrats have dominated the scene at a level not evident anywhere except in the Old South. Democrats have won eighteen of twenty-three gubernatorial elections since statehood. Between 1907 and 1973 Democrats averaged 81 percent of seats held in the state legislature. In 1964, even as Republicans won their first modern gubernatorial election, only 18 percent of Oklahoma voters registered as Republicans.
On 29 January 1863 Colonel Patrick Edward Connor and about 200 California Volunteers attacked a Northwestern Shoshoni winter village located at the confluence of Beaver Creek and Bear River. Would have been dispatched under a Republican Governor.
William Quantrill’s raid on the Free-State town of Lawrence, Kansas (also known as the Lawrence Massacre). This raid was the culmination of an ongoing conflict between the Free-State forces who controlled Lawrence and the proslavery partisans(Democrats) who lived in nearby Missouri.
You were right that I had ONE of them wrong. The other THREE were carried out by DEMOCRATS.
As for CRT (Creating Racists Today), because that’s what this BULLSHIT is about.
“Race is socially constructed, not biologically natural.”
Science would disagree.
“Racism in the United States is normal”
Only when you are a racist looking for it under every rock, in every eye, and in every breathe.
“Owing to what critical race theorists call “interest convergence” or “material determinism,” legal advances (or setbacks) for people of color tend to serve the interests of dominant white groups.”
In other words, blame it all on WHITEY, take no responsibility for your own actions.
“Members of minority groups periodically undergo “differential racialization,” or the attribution to them of varying sets of negative stereotypes, again depending on the needs or interests of whites.”
When a vocal group “speaks” for the majority, and portrays themselves as thugs, thieves, and drug dealers, then we are not to listen to them?
October 25, 2021 at 12:11 pm
“According to the thesis of “intersectionality” or “antiessentialism,” no individual can be adequately identified by membership in a single group. An African American person, for example, may also identify as a woman, a lesbian, a feminist, a Christian, and so on.”
I agree, individuals can be members of more than grouping.
“the “voice of color” thesis holds that people of color are uniquely qualified to speak on behalf of other members of their group (or groups) regarding the forms and effects of racism.”
CAN”T DO THIS. As I stated above:
“When a vocal group “speaks” for the majority, and portrays themselves as thugs, thieves, and drug dealers, then we are not to listen to them?”

I can understand why they might feel insulted, but they need to get over it. Their job and police powers demands that there be oversight. They’ve proven incapable of doing so themselves, so more oversight is obviously needed.

Hardy har har har
Three days after the 2020 presidential election was called for Joe Biden — and as President Donald Trump took to Twitter and falsely claimed that tens of thousands of votes were cast illegally — Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick (R) said he would reward a minimum of $25,000 to tipsters who uncovered credible instances of voter fraud.
“I support President Trump’s efforts to identify voter fraud in the presidential election and his commitment to making sure that every legal vote is counted and every illegal vote is disqualified,” Patrick said in a Nov. 10 news release.
Now, nearly a year later, Patrick has given out his first reward — but not to a member of his party, the Dallas Morning News reported this week. Patrick’s campaign sent a $25,000 check to Eric Frank, a Democratic poll worker from Pennsylvania whose tip led to the recent conviction of a 72-year-old registered Republican who cast a second vote in his son’s name last November, the Morning News reported.

Small potatoes compared to Zuckerberg’s investment of $415 million to two organizations to canvass, advise,collect, and cure mail in ballots for Mr Biden. It was probably that and Trump’s tired act of using his brash, noisey, demeanor that put Biden over the top.

Most of your facts appeared out of thin air just like your whiny claims about the entire election. Just because some idjut in Trumperville, Oklahoma likes the way these numbers sound doesn’t make them true. You guys are pathetic. Trump lost, get over it.

Tweedle, and I’m not talking Dee.
The numbers are from the report given to the legislature.
I didn’t even go into the ones that the Maricopa county board deleted from the systems, then reuploaded, corrupting 200,000+.
The numbers don’t lie. There was BS going on. There ALWAYS is, from BOTH sides.

Between his covert support for Critical Race Theory, discreet plans to abolish the suburbs, advocacy for abortion-on-demand, and other radical policies, it has become increasingly clear that McAuliffe’s alliance with the far-left wing of his party is, at the very least, alarming to the people of the Commonwealth of Virginia.
How in the world do you abolish a suburb? Please, enlighten.
October 23, 2021 at 3:46 am
New construction has to be multi, instead of single family homes.
October 23, 2021 at 8:46 am
Probably good reason for this, as the glut of single family homes floods the market over the decades. In the suburbs I’ve visited, already tons of both flavors. Lots of fluffy white single welfare mommies in those multis. They gotta live somewhere.
October 23, 2021 at 9:08 am
Every naive young Marxist today insists their vision of socialism would somehow go “right” next time. But it remains a fantasy that completely rejects human nature. History proves it.

you’ll have to ask McAuliffe that question, he’s the one with the “discreet plan”. when you call him for an interview, you can ask him.

October 23, 2021 at 9:07 am
Before welfare kicked black fathers out of the house 80% of black children lived in a two parent house. They believed in educating their children to have a better life. They went to church. With the government’s help we have 80% black children in single mother apartments. Welfare is now all they know. Only a small number find their way out. The only way to help is to make education a good thing again.

Among the policy issues quickly ascending to the forefront of American politics is the systematic effort of Democrats to abolish the suburbs by eliminating single-family zoning. Legislators in California recently enacted laws to eliminate zoning protections for single-family neighborhoods, and progressive-minded liberals in dozens of other cities and states are trying to do the same. The initiative is also being pushed by President Joe Biden and Democrats in Congress.
Efforts to ban single-family zoning are now rapidly spreading throughout the nation and becoming a significant component of the Democrat agenda. Terry McAuliffe, the Democrat nominee for Governor of Virginia, has called for “spearheading zoning reform”—for which he was notably attacked in a recent television advertisement. McAuliffe’s campaign website promotes his policy under the banner of “Neighbors for More Neighbors,” a slogan that was—not-so-incidentally—the name of one of the leading coalitions behind abolishing single-family zoning in Minnesota. As Stanley Kurtz recently wrote for National Review, there are reasons to believe “zoning may be on the cusp of emerging as a high-profile political issue.”

Drivers are advised to stay alert as they travel Iowa’s roadsides over the coming weeks. Autumn deer behavior, crop harvest and peak travel times for motorists combine to hike the risk of vehicle-deer collisions in Iowa.

Bull***t, Putin. Greedy rich oilmen and their lazy entitled stockholder are manipulating oil prices like they always have.
October 24, 2021 at 4:46 pm
Try putting the blame where it belongs, right on the head of the Vegetable in Residence, Pedo Joe Biden.
When he canceled Keystone, it stopped oil flow. When he stopped drilling, it stopped oil flow. Then he asks OPEC to up their production to keep prices down. What a MORON. Now the US imports milliions of barrels of oil a day that we weren’t before. This costs more in transport.
OPEC wants to get their profits up to the levels they were before Trump was elected, so oil prices are going up.
In November of 2020, price of Brent crude was $42.69(this price was on 11/30/2020) per barrel, while the price was $40.19 US dollars per barrel in October of 2020. Over last twelve months the price has fallen 32.46%.
Brent crude is extracted from the North Sea and is also known as London Brent, North Sea Oil, Brent Blend and Brent petroleum. It is a light crude oil, slightly heavier than WTI, and sweet because of its low sulphur content and it is ideal for the refining of diesel fuel, gasoline.
Brent oil makes up more than half of the world’s globally traded supply of crude oil. Brent blend crude serves as benchmark price for purchases of oil worldwide.
After Pedo Joe. 10/1/21 – $79.40 Over last twelve months the price has raisen 97.56%.
Joe elected $42.69, a little over 9 months into his presidency,$79.40. A rise of $36.71, could that be because OPEC has US over a barrel?
Currently, the Organization comprises 15 Member Countries – namely Algeria, Angola, Congo, Ecuador, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, IR Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Libya, Nigeria, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and Venezuela.
This is where we send our money now, with Trump in office, we did NOT import oil.

“I prefer Dangerous Freedom over Peaceful Slavery”
October 18, 2021 at 6:43 pm
A good person believes that all peoples should have a high standard of food, housing, and health … The good person places human rights far above property rights. He is for universal, free public education and recognizes this as fundamental to the democratic way of life … The good person believes completely in real equality of opportunity for all peoples regardless of race, color, or creed. He insists on full employment for economic security but is just as insistent that man’s work should not only provide economic security but also be such as to satisfy the creative desires within all men.

biden has finally done something right. In one of the most high-profile cases this term, the Supreme Court on Wednesday seems likely to side with the Biden administration and reinstate the death penalty for Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

how much money is being spent with the desmoines firm to come up with a new logo for the mason city high school? maybe A contest for the art students or graphic designers would be cheaper?
October 14, 2021 at 10:02 am
Sad. NIT will only use the original logo which honors Native Americans and their fine characteristics.
October 15, 2021 at 1:26 am
If they want a logo that reflects the “spirit of Mason City” they should just have an EBT tweaker and a D-boy fighting over a fat latinx woman. Maybe add a gun and some needles for flair.

Sources to your lies?
October 13, 2021 at 5:46 pm
I didn’t write the original post but they are not lies.
This comes from American Heritage which reports on history. “The somber chronicle of the events that ended in the genocide of the peaceful Arawaks of the Caribbean islands is amply documented in Columbus’ own letters and journals and in the pages of his most ardent admirer, Father Bartolomé de Las Casas, the great contemporary historian of the West Indies who believed Columbus had been divinely inspired to make the Discovery. But Las Casas was a thoroughly honest writer, and he did not hesitate to pass harsh judgment on his hero for initiating and carrying on the wholesale enslavement for profit of the gentle natives who had affectionately welcomed Columbus and his fellow argonauts to the New World. Throughout his long life Las Casas was an impassioned crusader for the rights and survival of the hapless Indians—his “poor innocents,” as he called them—whose cruel oppression by the Spanish invaders he laid square at Columbus’ door.

Journal of Christopher Columbus, 1492
Thursday, October 11
…Presently many inhabitants of the island assembled. What follows is in the actual words of the Admiral in his book of the first navigation and discovery of the Indies. “I,” he says, ” that we might form great friendship, for I knew that they were a people who could be more easily freed and converted to our holy faith by love than by force, gave to some of them red caps, and glass beads to put round their necks, and many other things of little value, which gave them great pleasure, and made them so much our friends that it was a marvel to see. They afterwards came to the ship’s boats where we were, swimming and bringing us parrots, cotton threads in skeins, darts, and many other things; and we exchanged them for other things that we gave them, such as glass beads and small bells. In fine, they took all, and gave what they had with good will. It appeared to me to be a race of people very poor in everything. They go as naked as when their mothers bore them, and so do the women, although I did not see more than one young girl. All I saw were youths, none more than thirty years of age. They are very well made, with very handsome bodies, and very good countenances. Their hair is short and coarse, almost like the hairs of a horse’s tail. They wear the hairs brought down to the eyebrows, except a few locks behind, which they wear long and never cut. They paint themselves black, and they are the color of the Canarians, neither black nor white. Some paint themselves white, others red, and others of what color they find. Some paint their faces, others the whole body, some only round the eyes, others only on the nose. They neither carry nor know anything of arms, for I showed them swords, and they took them by the blade and cut themselves through ignorance. They have no iron, their darts being wands without iron, some of them having a fish’s tooth at the end, and others being pointed in various ways. They are all of fair stature and size, with good laces, and well made. I saw some with marks of wounds on their bodies, and I made signs to ask what it was, and they gave me to understand that people from other adjacent islands came with the intention of seizing them, and that they defended themselves. I believed, and still believe, that they come here from the mainland to take them prisoners.

Read CC’s bio… turns out he murdered enslaved mutilated the natives… what a hero. Didn’t teach us that one at Grant School.
October 18, 2021 at 8:02 pm
If you were writing in your personal journal, would you include enslaving natives, overt cruelty to the indigenous people and Spaniards who disagreed with him, and forced labor in the gold mines? By all accounts, Columbus was not a nice guy. And he didn’t discover America.
October 11, 2021 at 7:33 pm
Haven’t heard much from Putin lately. He is laying low until the cult leader in Mar a Lago starts his campaign again so the two of them can continue the selling of America to Russia.
