    *Virginians are now in open revolt against the governor and his cronies with more than 100 counties and cities passing “sanctuary” resolutions in support of the Second Amendment and against many of the anti-gun proposals. Many Virginians will refuse to comply with new restrictive gun laws, which may lead to fatal violence. As Thomas Jefferson of Virginia wrote: “When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.

The Democrats will scream and shout and complain all the way to November. I fear there will be more of the same in 2021 when they realize they lost another election they had to win.

    We are divided because of the left. They have worked to impeach Trump from the day he was inaugurated. They have searched for any evidence that just might work in selling voters. They have not found it yet, but they will never stop. Whether in trying to make Iran’s Qassem Soleimani some kind of hero who never should have been killed or shouting from the rooftops that Trump is sure to start a Middle East war, the Democrats are actively working to undermine this president’s authority as commander in chief.

    Advocates throw around accusations of fake news, but there is no one shared news Americans can count on. What the media chooses to report and chooses to leave out for their targeted constituencies just reinforces their embedded confirmation bias. Arguing over facts you don’t accept as accurate or relevant is fruitless.

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi continues to hold the Articles of Impeachment in limbo waiting for the Senate to give her rules that will allow witnesses and expanded discovery for that true “impeachable offense.” Even some Democrats are telling her to submit them or forget them. The impeachment plan is languishing, and Americans don’t care. They know it will not be successful in reaching the votes needed, and they are not even sure President Trump’s actions warrant his removal. It has not been sold, but it still hangs over the country.

Founded on a belief in freedom and the rights given by God to all, our Founding Fathers created a republic that protected citizens from government overreach and freed them to turn their dreams into reality. They had confidence in their citizens and the power of community to ensure the future of the republic.

When the truth came out by actual data statistics that illegal immigrants cost U.S. taxpayers on average $50,000 per illegal immigrant, snopes was quick to call this “false”, despite the evidence was apparent. What was their logic as to why it was false you might ask? They added in their article that the illegals would likely have children who would add money to the U.S’s GDP.
    They added this extra part that the original claim had nothing to do with, in order to call it false. That’s the strawman we are dealing with.

    Trump Furious at Iran for Distracting People from Impeachment for Only Two Days.

    WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Donald J. Trump is “incredibly angry” at Iran for taking the American people’s attention away from his impeachment for only about two days, Trump told reporters on Wednesday.

    “When I did that drone strike, I was under the impression that it would knock impeachment out of the news for at least a month,” a visibly enraged Trump said. “Instead, it’s Wednesday and we’re back to this Pelosi garbage.”

    Trump said that he had hoped that Iranians would react to his provocation in a way that might have forced Democrats to forget about impeaching him altogether, but “all I got for my trouble was a chickenshit couple of days.”

    “Honestly, Iran reacted like it was Belgium or something,” Trump said.
    Trump said that he was unlikely to attack Iran again “if this is the thanks I get,” and wondered if attacking a different country might have resulted in a more substantial distraction from his impeachment.

    “Should I have attacked North Korea?” he said. “Frankly, I don’t know who to trust anymore.”

    Perhaps in your blue city/faculty lounge circles, concepts like “patriotism,” “loyalty” and “not allying yourself with communist and Islamist butchers” are character defects that, if you drones had the capacity to breed, you would attempt to breed out of the pack. But here in America, we like them. And we prefer Americans who side with America.
    Even though there are hours of television proof to the contrary Democrats have largely been more on the side of a dead terrorist than free people for the past two weeks.
    Disappointed that we killed the leading active terrorist on planet earth, they continually bemoaned the fact that we didn’t tell them we were going to ahead of time.

    The odd thing about those Democrats, every time they have been briefed on something over the past three years it mysteriously made its way into the headlines of the Washington Post within minutes. Heck, they couldn’t even keep from leaking stuff about their own committees and things taking place in top-secret chambers as it related to impeachment.

    Honestly, if you were Donald J. Trump, and the law only requires that you inform them of your action within 48 hours after it’s conclusion, would you even consider it? Clinton didn’t. Obama didn’t. Why must President Trump handicap his own security mechanisms and give the terrorist the chance to get away?

        Iowa doesn’t have a “congress”. We have a legislature. She is the one calling for the increase in sales tax. We do need to clean up the water but less than 20% of the sales tax increase would go there. She also wants to cut the tax rate on the wealthiest Iowans by 1/2. How about the middle class? Nope, they can help pay for the wealthy tax cut by paying more sales tax.

    Observation: It appears that Hy-Vee West has a new can redemption trailer outside “Keep it out of the Landfill Project”. This appears to be a for profit trailer for whoever owns it. I’m hoping people don’t assume its for the local fire works we typically fund raise for. The trailer is a bit deceiving from an outsiders point of view.

    Is the exchange club still in operation and raising funds for the local fire works?

They usually go back to the source of the supposed ‘fact’, see who originally posted it and if they can verify their post. Then, they look at the evidence. Then they make a decision. Try it sometime bot, you might find the truth.

    Don’t forget that Snopes has used Rational Wiki as a source in many articles. Meanwhile, schoolkids can’t even use regular Wikipedia as a source on assignments since it’s considered unreliable. And what’s also strange is that I’ve noticed Snopes using the same kind of misleading tactics on non-political articles, way back in the mid 2000s too. And those articles were never corrected despite overwhelming evidence, and they even got cited as a source for a Wikipedia article on that specific subject.

    I’ve noticed this a long time ago looking at Snopes. When the truth came out by actual data statistics that illegal immigrants cost U.S. taxpayers on average $50,000 per illegal immigrant, snopes was quick to call this “false”, despite the evidence was apparent. What was their logic as to why it was false you might ask? They added in their article that the illegals would likely have children who would add money to the U.S’s GDP.
    They added this extra part that the original claim had nothing to do with, in order to call it false. That’s the strawman we are dealing with.

They’ve been living in fear since the Islamic revolution in 1979 that totally changed their country and their lives. They’re sick of being held hostage by these Islamic terrorists. They’re sick of the heavy hand of the mullahs and this regime suffocating their lives. They’re sick of living in fear that they will be executed if they speak out. They’re sick of living under these masters of oppression. Pray for the Iranian people today, that they will be able to taste the freedom that they have longed for so many years.

His contact has only been high price ads. Think about this, he will not talk with the public but will spend large sums of money for his ads. The reason he won’t speak with the public is because he doesn’t care what we want or need.

Californians are voting with their feet—and moving away from the Golden State for more freedom and more opportunity. “As with most of the tens of thousands of Californians who have moved to the Lone Star State annually in recent years, we did so for opportunity born of greater freedom: lower taxes, greater private property rights and less government to tell you what to do.”
