    Be aware, People. This is what a Democrat is willing to do. Go directly against our 2nd Amendment rights. If she is willing to do this, what other rights and laws would she be willing to break? And many other Democrats are of like mind.Think long and hard before you mark your ballot!!!

    I don’t think those thick headed Democrats and some Republicans can get it through their head that America is fed up with these career politicians ignoring the voters, what we really want. Trump has finally made the masses realize that he can make America great again. I don’t intend to let him down in November..

    Got to hand it to KIMT. They must be putting the heat on KTTC in the Rochester news wars. KTTC is now promoting that beginning in June, they will have a full hour of news at noon, and will begin their local morning show news coverage at 4:30am. KIMT has been starting their local Daybreak show at 4:30am.
    Hopefully KIMT doesn’t do the hour at noon. It would mean cutting into The Bold and the Beautiful.

    Effective immediately the Shell Rock River Greenbelt roads will be open to authorized vehicle traffic. Authorized vehicle traffic is those vehicles that have a valid license plate issued by a state department of transportation. All other motorized vehicles are prohibited i.e. ATV’s, UTV’s and Golf Carts. A reminder to vehicle users that the roads are a shared roadway with hikers, bicyclists and horses and the posted speed limit is 15 mph. All vehicles are required to stay on the main roadway. The roads will remain open, subject to exceptional weather conditions, until late November and reopen next spring in late May. For further information call 641-423-5309 M-F 7:30-4:00.

    There was a plot to entrap Flynn. There was no evidence to prove Russian collusion. Even the agents who interviewed Flynn said he didn’t lie to them. Flynn has spoken with then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, which was part of his job. The FBI and its Trump-deranged officials thought this was a Logan Act violation, which is utterly laughable.

    When the President was simply talking about it in hopeful terms, it was easy for journalists to dismiss it. Studies of it possible effectiveness were brushed aside for reports of people on their last legs not being brought back from the edge of death by the pills and presented as if they were what put the nails in their coffins. It was a sick abuse of the public trust or, since we’re talking about liberal media here, just another day in the office.

That someone like Joy Behar is paid millions of dollars to spew ignorance on television is a testament to just how far gone merit is. That Joe Biden is the presumptive Democratic Party nominee for president is a testament to society’s tolerance of senior abuse. These three individual fecal storms of stupidity came together this week when President Donald Trump announced he was taking the drug as preventative measure after being exposed to White House staffers who tested positive, and the result was Olympic-level stupid.

    Two weeks ago, in a store in Flint, Michigan, a security guard and father of nine asked a woman to put on a mask. She refused. He asks her to leave the store. She leaves. Her husband and her adult son soon return. The guard was fatally shot in the back of the head. Days ago, in Delaware, a black man is suspected of murdering an elderly couple, an 86-year-old Army vet and his 85-year-old wife, who were visiting their son’s grave at a veteran’s cemetery. In the Flint killing, all parties were black. In the Delaware double homicide, the shooter was black, and the couple was white. In 2018, according to the FBI’s Bureau of Justice Statistics, there were about 600,000 nonhomicide violent black-white crimes each year, with 90% involving a black perpetrator and a white victim.

    Blacks kill twice as many whites (500 in 2015) as whites kill blacks (229 in 2015). Blacks, at 13% of the population, commit 50% of murders, and 90% of black murder victims are killed by other blacks.

    “Blacks commit violent crimes at 7 to 10 times the rate that whites do. The fact that their victims tend to be of the same race suggests that young black men in the ghetto live in danger of being shot by each other, not cops.” The No. 1 cause of preventable deaths for young white men is accidents, like car accidents. The No. 1 cause of deaths, preventable or otherwise, for young black men is homicide.

    This old hag is concerned because the indoctrination machine, otherwise known as the public school system, is getting some competition! By homeschooling their kids these parents are protecting and shielding their children from the secular humanistic ideology that a child in the public school system is being taught!

    Wonder if all 7.7 million people in Michigan made a REQUEST in WRITING for an absentee ballot (application) to be sent to them, in order to vote by mail?
    If the answer is no, then this sounds like election interference and fraud to us!

    Obama had the power to make a huge positive influence on our country. As the first African American president he could have united all. Instead he chose to divide the people against each other, against the police. He undone everything Martin Luther King accomplished and set the country back. He could have been a great president, but he failed.

    Politicians should go to Washington, do their best, and then come home to live under the laws they’ve passed. It’s just that simple. Our Founding Fathers never imagined the rise of the career politician. They envisioned citizen legislators. Elected office was never meant to be a career, nor was it meant to be a vessel for the centralization and maintenance of federal power.
