      Oh yes. I have been playing this Hope concert since Easter.
      Amazing Grace is just so beautiful.
      I love Bocelli.
      He blesses us with the gift God gave him.
      (I just got a new Bose WiFi speaker and will be listening to music 24/7 to soothe my soul. Hope the neighbors like my choices😉)

    Listened to what Solomon actually said again – He said a few indictments should be coming “soon” based on what has been happening this week and the last few weeks with grand juries etc.. He didn’t say specifically the first indictments would be this coming week.

      And there is no proof that COVID 19 survivors DONT have immunity either.

      With this whole COVID thing there is NO PROOF of just about ANYTHING.

      As a fellow treehouse patron stated: With as many cured virus victims as there are world wide, we would know if they weren’t immune now.

      It is ridiculous for WHO to say we don’t know if those people are immune. With over 600,000 confirmed recovered, and only a few re-infected (and those were almost immediate, showing that they hadn’t truly recovered), there is a huge amount of evidence that they are immune.

    This whole social distancing thing is very unnatural. I am not a fan
    of grocery shopping to begin with but it is so strange to have walk
    around in masks..everyone staying away from each other..having to pay
    attention to traffic flow in the grocery story only going one way down aisles..

    Then the rules keep changing first it was use reusable bags not plastic
    now it is use plastic or paper not reuseable after we bought reusable ones?

    I guess the only good thing is Gov. Lamont has suspended the plastic bag
    tax…I mean charge…and for now they are back in the stores and free.
    for Now I am sure it will return (the tax) ASAP..

    Don;t wear masks, masks don;t help.. Oh but wait now we ALL have to wear

    We have been told using too much antibacterial soap/ hand sanitzer isn;t good
    for us but now…it is EVERYWHERE..

    This whole paycheck protection program inaction by the Pelosi and Schumer has me so angry. I wonder of Pres Trump can move money form somewhere else, like he did with funds for building the wall, and dare them to take it to court…..and say screw you on the pork bill they are working on to hold the Paycheck Protection Program hostage.

    Erie County New York now has more fatalities reported than what two-thirds of U.S. states are reporting. Erie County is 800 miles from the urban density of NYC; outside of downtown Buffalo it is mostly rolling hillsides and hamlets on the Erie Canal.

    New York needs to be investigated.

    The Hill & Washington Post came out with their narrative about the recent declassifications – almost 48 hours after the blockbuster revelations. Their spin?

    – it’s a partisan GOP issue
    – declass is about Russian disinformation
    – lumping in extraneous issues – like 5 paragraphs on Barr being allegedly biased
    – about 2 paragraphs on a pause in the Biden Crime Family affairs

    I’m not into the weeds on this recent declass do can’t quickly debunk it, but I’d like to.

    Does the WashIngton Post sing a similar tune?

      Tonight at 8PM-10PM Eastern, every network channel, ABC,NBC,CBS is airing “One World: Together at Home”.

      Billed as …” A global broad entertainment special to celebrate the heroic efforts of community health workers and support the World Health Organization and the global fight to end Covid19…”

      Interesting to watch these fools double down.

    Would someone from Congress or who knows someone from Congress, or even someone from the White House, who reads here, check with Mark Meadows to see if operating on Trump Time is too much for him.

    Is he really reduced to tears? If so he needs to do us all a favor and resign. The President and his team have urgent matters to attend to, IN TRUMP TIME no less.

    Love you Mark😃 so I am going to assume it’s the usual NYT lies until proven otherwise. Be Blessed and our prayers are with you for success.

        actually the POTUS said that if he cried that it’s not a bad thing

        Maybe the guy is totally overwhelmed. Evidently Mulvaney left a pile of steaming poo and he’s been slung in all that AND this pandemic

        I had a job once that the gal training me made EVERYTHING about the whole thing so much more complicated that it was. She had me do stuff without explaining HOW in the whole scheme of things it mattered….like the whole circle completes after certain tasks are done

        I was reduced to tears several times and thought about quitting …but ONE day it finally clicked and I was like OMG I could have explained the whole thing so much easier

    Dims trying to get a Majority in the Senate. God help us, truly.

    Start of the article:

    Democrats are racing to broaden their path to the Senate majority in November, while Republicans are spending heavily in an effort to hold their control over the chamber.

    With 200 days to go until Election Day, the Democrats’ path to a Senate majority currently hinges on four states: Arizona, Colorado, Maine and North Carolina, where Republican incumbents are fighting off challenges from well-funded Democratic opponents.

    Democrats need to flip three or four seats, depending on which party wins the White House in November, to take control of the Senate. But one of their incumbents up for reelection this year, Sen. Doug Jones (D-Ala.), is in serious political jeopardy, meaning that Democrats will likely have to take at least four Republican-held seats – and hold back GOP challenges in nearly a dozen other states – to win a majority.



    • Beau Geste says:

      Tell ALL GOP senate candidates:
      “no money or votes unless you stop blocking recess appointments”
      “Stop lying that you are always in session when you are not. pro forma session in which a gavel is banged without the full senate present is a lie to block the President from appointing honest people to help him. Why do you want to force PDJT to have no help, or be forced to rely on SES weasels and traitors?”

      The sooner they get this message, the better.

      Maybe Doug Jones would call out this disgusting lie, and force the senate to return to real, true session? Doug, are you listening? All of the GOP senators are liars. Maybe you can call out their lies, and get yourself re-elected by forcing the truth?


      • Beau Geste says:

        PDJT has signaled that the GOPe flat-out-lie ( that the Senate is always in session when it is not ) is a significant problem. Lets get it fixed now. The GOP fundraising and vote promising needs to stop until they fix this problem, which is easy to fix, especially with the President’s ‘help’ under the Constitution.

        What is wrong with the GOP that they have persisted in this hateful, lying behavior? PDJT is the only President prevented by lies from making any recess appointments. And he supposedly has a GOP-majority senate to ‘disagree with the House. congresscritters are disgusting.


      • jeans2nd says:

        Oh good grief. Do you really believe anything, anything at all, that any Socialist democrat tells you?
        Look at all the promises the Socialists made to get in the House, including working with Pres Trump and not voting for Pelosi for Speaker. How did that work out?

        And you want to rely on another Socialist in the Senate to keep his word.
        Lord preserve us.
        Even the Bernie Bros no longer trust the Socialist democrats.

          Not looking for ‘promises”.
          If Jones, right now, demands the Senate function and stay, rather than lie that it is “in (pro forma) session”, he would be more honest than ANY Republican senatecritter, all of whom are continuing to lie. He would facilitate PDJT in either getting the small business aid passed if the Senate and House were forced to return, or facilitate PDJT declaring them no longer in session if they, or one of them, refused, so PDJT could immediately make recess appointments.

          And then Jones could win re-election. easily.
          And deserve it.

          maybe we should propose it to his office?


          • jeans2nd says:

            You are suggesting Jones take on Cryin’ Chuck, and Mitch McConnell.
            Do you spose Doug Jones has any influence over either leader? Enough to change Senate actions? Remember, Jones is a freshman Senator.


    • listingstarboard says:

      Seriously think that Mark Kelly has a good chance of winning here in AZ-people are so damned fickle in this state. And quite a few Republicans i know have fallen for the Kirsten Sinema act as well.


      • JG3 says:

        “All politics are local” Gotta rise above it. Tie them to the DEMOCRAT party! Get the message out: All democrats march in lock-step! Ask: Do you think they will vote against Nancy P, AOC & the squad, Chuck S? How long has it been since a democrat has voted against them? And, what happens to them if they do? List all the anti-America, anti-God, anti-middle class things they stand for. And, of course, introduce them to everything POTUS has done. Contact local RNC office, make some suggestions on how they can work to get the message out, billboards, posters, t-shirts, block parties, word-of mouth, ads, mailings, etc. One person can make a difference…

    So did Trump really sign his name on the $1200 checks or were they all direct deposit like Mnuchin says?


    • CountryClassVulgarian says:

      As far as I know the whole thing about the President signing the checks was another lie by the very fake news hysterical drive by media – “sources in the White House say…”. Mnuchin had said from the beginning that the payments would be directly deposited. The cabal was trying to make POTUS look petty and silly for wanting to sign millions of checks. Anyone really think THAT would be feasible?

        Country class, that’s what I thought too. I also don’t know why Trumps name would even be on the check- since it’s not his money but most likely collected taxes and treasury money 🤷🏼‍♀️ I haven’t found a credible site report the check signatures and everyone I know who got a check got it by direct deposit
