    The below video is terrific. The last half shows a dad taking his little boy fishing for the first time…his first fish. I needed Kleenex. Especially love big sis sayin’, “That’s how a man does it.”

      Exactly! Cabelas, REI and Bass World like other retailers are being screwed. I can walk into Walmart, Costco, Target and BJs and buy all the camping, fishing, hiking and outdoors apparel and equipment I want all day long. Costco even had tents, rubber inflatable boats and sleeping bags as well as ski equipment. Walmart has a huge selection of fishing, camping equipment and even some kayaks. Why are some retailers allowed to thrive and others can’t survive!

        I understand it’s a rhetorical question (thus the exclamation mark), but I’ll throw out an answer, “because the goal of the shutdown is destruction of the Constitution, control of the populace, and control over the economy, which requires centralization.” This is an illegal, unconstitutional abuse of state and local officials’ power. Wherever they’ve been challenged in court their knee-jerk, “lock-step” Demonrat orders have been found to overreach and lack sufficient rational basis to pass constitutional muster.

        FauXi and BriXi must go, along with all their corrupt Big Pharma shill cadres! When VSGPDJT announces all emergency orders and declarations are lifted, the states will have virtually no choice, but to reopen fully. QT the sick, fine; but get everyone else back to work!

          There should be some serious repercussions. Original lawyers license to practice should be suspended and major fines. Same for the mother ship. All of D.C. is so incestuous with truly a separate justice system for the lawmakers. They do not understand that we support President Trump’s effort at a great reformation. They think he is just a phase, but he is the dawning.

          Spread all Federal agencies across the country and give a lot of it back to the states. 5 year term limits for pols and lobbyist, The 6 degrees of separation in the NGOs is more like 2 degrees. D.C. needs to contract

          I also think that if criminality is proven that the sovereign veil should fall away and Flynn and Carter Page and Papadopoulosl should be allowed civil recourse against Sally Yates, Brennan, Comey, rich-ass Priestrap etc… These politicians need to tighten up and get a little skin in the game

    “The California woman who was the first known COVID-19 victim in the US died from a “burst” heart — when her own body turned against her as it tried to rid itself of the bug, according to a report.

    Patricia Dowd, 57, was under such assault from the virus that a valve in her heart ruptured, causing her to die Feb. 6 at her San Jose home, the Mercury News reported.

    “The immune system was attacking the virus and in attacking the virus it damaged the heart and then the heart basically burst,” said Dr. Judy Melinek, a forensic pathologist who reviewed the autopsy report, according to the report.”

    Mississippi Mayor Bans Open Carry As A Public Health Measure During The Pandemic

    “The open carry law is viewed as a state right under Mississippi constitutional and statutory law. If a court agreed, local governments would be preempted in limiting such a right. That appears to be what Mississippi Attorney General Lynn Fitch has in mind in declaring “Cities can’t usurp the authority of the State’s elected Legislature and violate the Constitutional rights of the people. I support the 2nd Amendment and will enforce the laws of this State.”

    Barr notably warned

    “If a state or local ordinance crosses the line from an appropriate exercise of authority to stop the spread of COVID-19 into an overbearing infringement of constitutional and statutory protections, the Department of Justice may have an obligation to address that overreach in federal court.”

      In NYC. Today was the first day someone commented on my husband and I not wearing masks (plenty of people look at us with disgust and horror, of course). A woman walking toward us (we were more than 6 feet away from this woman, she went out of her way to come within our 6 feet of social distancing space) stopped and said “Oh, I really wish you were wearing masks”. I said “It’s still a free country”. She said that was a ridiculous thing to say, because don’t we see how horribly selfish we are. There was some back and forth, and my husband finally suggested that maybe she shouldn’t leave the house. She probably reported us to Comrade DeBlasio’s snitch line. I hope I see her again.

    • Think maybe she is getting wise to reporters twisting what she says in order to make President Trump look bad. When you have a life-long career which you are very proud of, and you have worked hard, and you take your responsibility in this situation seriously, you are not going to let some TDS-infected reporter make a fool out of you. Also, I imagine working with the President all this time has shown her what a smart, caring and likeable person he is – something that the media has kept hidden from the public by smearing him as, well you know what they do.

          I have been at 3 British Opens. Carnoustie twice, and St Andrews once. Our sons and I may go again to 2022 ( it’s been moved forward.) as they are terrific experiences for true golf fans.

          However..I have no longer interest in any T.V. Golf. ( except the Ryder Cup.)

          Subtle leftist messages are now common on Golf telecasts.

          Our family were insane soccer fans, and have attended countless E.P.L games, a number of Euro and World Cup games.

          Soccer too has become P.C.

          We no longer watch soccer. Leftist S.J.W. nonsense destroys everything.

    I’m not a scientist by any stretch of the imagination but I’ve been pondering what this author speculates ever since I first heard Doctors Fauci and Birx discuss the typical lifecycle of a virus which they say typically comes in three waves along with Dr. Birx noting the noticeable uptick in diagnoses of cases of influenza like illnesses (ILI) beginning last fall which were neither Influenza A nor Influenza B. The second wave of a virus is supposedly more virulent than the first with the third wave being of reduced virulence before it dies out. I’m sure there are scientific terms and rationale for these concepts which I’m just pulling from my recollection of past WH briefings. I apologize to the scientists and doctors amongst us.

    While I would suspect that it is no longer possible to go back and re-examine last fall’s ILI cases to determine if they were in fact COVID19, why aren’t the medical and the scientific communities even having a conversation concerning the potential seasonality of this virus in light of the large number of ILI’s last fall and the possibility that they could have been the first wave of COVID19 and that we might at this very moment be beginning the end of the much feared second wave. I realize this doesn’t fit the required prevalent political narrative of gloom and doom but there has to be truth seeking scientists out there. Perhaps this has been covered and I just missed it or don’t know where to look. Then there is also the distinct possibility that I don’t have a clue what I’m talking about,

    ATTENTION ILLINOISANS! and all freedom-loving patriots,

    A second Illinois Legislator, this time from Rockford, IL is fighting Pritzker’s stay-at-home order. The same lawyer who successfully took the suit to court on behalf of a downstate Rep. Darren Bailey, for which the Circuit Court Judge put in an injunction that only effectively absolves Mr. Bailey, is now representing Rep. John Cabello of Rockford. This time the suit not only includes Mr. Cabello, but it seeks to absolve all Illinois residents from abiding by the dictates of the overreaching Governor.

    I pray this one will also be successful in undoing the Governor’s unconstitutional order! May the Lord grant favor to Rep. Cabello and all of us.

    I am not sure where to put this — because I don’t want it to get lost in the shuffle.

    I contend that a lot more focus needs to be put on Bill Gates — and NOT as it only relates to vaccines.

    In my opinion, this guy has been doing as much damage — in a very different way — to us (our world; humanity; the US) as George Soros has.

    We have had a lazer beam on George Soros, while Bill Gates has also been stealthily doing great harm. His tentacles are just about everywhere.

    For example: https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2020/04/what-covid-revealed-about-internet/610549/

    This is an article in The Atlantic which tries to explain that the internet — and whatever ‘free speech’ we may have thought that represented — will never really be ‘free’ again.

    And in the writer’s opinion, this is a good thing.

    The writer (one of them, as it was co-written) is Andrew Keane Woods.

    And who the heck is that? He is an attorney whose education was financed by the Gates Foundation.

    This is really my point, and it is just one example.

    Bill Gates & the “Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation” have been creating great havoc on our way of life — using their great wealth — and their distorted views on humanity.

    So, there are times that I just scream.

    This may be one of those times.

    Excerpt:

    “We argue that it is a substantial deprivation of the property rights of business owners across Pennsylvania and it’s been done without due process of law,” Scaringi explained. “So, we sued the governor of Pennsylvania in the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, asking the court to strike down Governor Wolf’s business closure order as violating the Pennsylvania and United States Constitution.”

    >Snip<

    "…Eighty percent of those infected with COVID-19 in Pennsylvania come from 10 of Pennsylvania's 67 counties. It's the northeastern section of the state and the southeastern section of the state closest to New Jersey and New York," he pointed out. "And so, a targeted, regional, geographical response would have been the rational, reasonable way to address this issue."

      As a Pennsylvanian I concur. In fact, 1/3 of PA counties have had zero COVID-19 deaths and 2/3 have had fewer than 5 deaths. The SE counties which include Philadelphia, Bucks, Montgomery, Delaware and Chester counties have had the most number of cases and deaths but have now plateaued….the curve has finally flattened.
