    Treepers, please read my long(ish) comment. Sundance has called us to act, in the spirit of Andrew Breitbart, who instructed us to “walk toward the fire.”

    Many of you wonder what you might do besides voting, contacting your elected officials, or financially contributing to worthy entities such as CTH. Many of you are limited by health, time, or finances. I hope to inspire you.

    Fake news is the enemy of the people. All politics is local. Therefore, start with your local media. It works. Complaining to the nat’l media might be futile, but starting local is key.

    It may be uncomfortable to issue a complaint against a local member of your media, but it needs to be done if they exhibit bias. That “nice guy” you might know (or you know someone else who knows him) deserves to be challenged when he delivers biased news. He’s not really such a “nice guy” if he insults your political ideology, when you veer even slightly toward Conservatism.

    A few years ago, I shared my account of getting a local News Director of a news/talk radio station removed. He was a “nice guy” – with kids, and a mortgage. He was really my local enemy, and he learned a lesson. Or maybe he didn’t, I don’t care. He’s gone. It’s WAR…and I feel no remorse.

    Since then, his replacement has become even worse. I’ve noted recent examples of his blatant bias, snark, and unprofessional commentary in the news stories shared across all the sister stations. I contacted the General Manager, who sent me a very respectful reply – and seems genuinely concerned. I will respond with full fortitude, and expect that there will be changes.

    This “nice guy” News Director feels entitled to insult and offend me, when I simply want to get the local news and weather. Not acceptable. Especially in an election year, we have an OBLIGATION to report “news correspondents” who are serving as shills for the Democrat Party.

    This is the time. It’s an election year, and there are FCC guidelines. It’s WAR. Use your real name, and gather your friends to back you up if need be.

The above video boils it down to the CIA through media Hollywood want to control our culture through their propaganda. Thats why they hate Christianity. Faith in God.

              In Australia Rupert Murdochs News papers and T.V.Channels are even handed. He does not interfere with his Editors other than to stress that the opinion writers must be evenly balanced between Left and right…….. The Socialists HATE this…….. He owns about 1/3 of the Papers and gets 2/3 of the sales.. Australian content in his papers is generally even handed , both sides get a say. ( The bulk of the other 2/3 of Newspapers are rabidly Socialist and upset that they sell less copies……… But………….. Overseas news in the Murdoch Papers is quoted from from an international Agency and is always heavily biased against President Trump. His T.V. channels however do have Conservative commentators who know and tell the Truth about President Trump. I see comments on this Blog that you don,t like Rupert Murdoch but the Socialists here hate him.

        Amwick, that’s my point. Conservatives have gotten used to the contempt we receive from the media. We expect it. How ridiculous is that?

        When your anti-Trump local news is pizzing you off, you can bet there are many others thinking the same thing. We need to STOP being the SILENT majority.

        It’s so easy to contact your local media, and you’d be surprised how little feedback general mgr’s and station mgr’s actually receive. We must confront the enemy.

      PJ, Along those lines, but from a different angle….. My wife spends at least half her day giving well reasoned, respectful, researched and yes confrontational answers to leftist comments on our local news sites, facebook and so on. Sometimes the person listens/argues/curses her, but the fruit is often many others who DO listen and even reason.

      Remember that nasty woman “rector” in DC, the Church that was set on fire? Yeah, she backed down and logged off Facebook when my wife confronted her lies, but many others listened, learned and even changed their view of the situation.

      She works long and hard on her posts, especially to not react like she really wants to! And often is excited to show me a good thread when I get home from work. Recently, facebook removes her posts when they get too much attention, etc, but she now keeps a copy before she posts and posts it again :o)

      Just had the Democrat and Republican primary election in Louisiana….The Dems turned out 247,000 and Biden got 80% of that vote….the Republicans turned out 212,000 and Trump received 96% of the vote. Granted that this was a delayed primary vote and that we had masking at polling stations but it seems that Republican turnout should have been higher. There were 88,000 absentee voters as compared to 20,000 in 2016.

        This is worrisome. I don’t believe Louisiana is the only state with this type of result.

        Volunteer as a poll watcher esp for mail-in votes in your county by going to your state’s Secy of State website and look for ‘Elections’. Failing that, look for your Repub Commission in your state and contact them on where to go to offer voting day assistance.

        You won’t want to wait until last minute to volunteer as there is training required to do this work. One day of your time.

In short, love what’s loveable, hate what’s deserving of hate and keep working with the people you meet who may be salvageable.

            Specifically re: keeping up with the crazy election schedule: gotta read the local papers online and lurk your Nextdoor boards to keep up down here. Political machines are the order of the day and they only communicate with their memberships and targeted demographics, especially in NOLA. If you’re not in NOLA, you’ve got a fair chance of having a decent Republican organization you can participate in. In NOLA, it’s still possible, but harder.

      I find it laughable that these Democrat mayors encourage the looting, arson, theft, denigration of monuments, assaults on their citizens and then have the audacity to go, hat in hand, to President Trump to beg for money to fix what they allowed. That takes some pretty small balls! Wow, did it ever occur to them that we have a President who reads them like the Sunday comics that they emulate and responds to them like the spoiled brats that they are?

    ***Today’s WeBuildTheWall / Fisher Industries posts***
    (Previous posts: https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2020/07/13/july-13th-2020-presidential-politics-trump-administration-day-1271/comment-page-1/#comment-8469486)

    Note: Most of the WBTW related social media accounts are covering coronavirus, politics, or illegal alien crimes. We will probably be in a quiet period regarding wall content until the next project(s) are near completion.
    The praises (much of which are older news) have been provided for those who wish to give thanks for them before praying for the wall prayer requests. I may add to, trim back, or simplify from time to time as projects/events progress or come to completion. If there is any new wall news I’ll list them in the update below. Otherwise, feel free to page down or scroll past.
    – – – – –
    Sunday night update – 7/12/20 – (See link above.)

    – President Trump tweet stating we now have 240 miles of border wall completed.

    – AP article: “Trump rips private Texas border wall built by his supporters”
    – President Trump’s tweet mentioned in above article referencing Project 2.
    – 5 possible reasons for President Trump’s tweet in reference to Project 2.

    – – – – –
    Monday night update – 7/13/20

    – Chief Rodney Scott Border Wall System update w/ 235 miles complete.
    Yesterday, President Trump mentioned 240 miles had been completed. Chief Scott’s wall update graphics tend to lag Trump’s wall announcements.

    – Video: Steve Bannon interviews Tommy Fisher on the The War Room.
    Topics: Recent hit piece on Fisher, erosion issues at Project 2, landscape establishment period for new construction, wall designs based on geography and geology, review of Project 1, etc…

    – – – – –
    ***Praise: 🧱 (Project 1: May/June 2019)… WBTW/Fisher Industries was able to build a half mile wall up the side of a mountain in 11 days (with zero safety incidents), cutting off 19 major drug cartel trails, and closing off one of the worst areas along the border… (Sunland Park, NM)
    ***Praise: 👍 (11/20/19)… DHS Secretary Chad Wolf & CBP Chief gave a huge endorsement to WeBuildTheWall & Fisher industries project while visiting Project 1. CBP Chief called it a “Game Changer”. It’s the only time CBP or DHS have ever endorsed a wall builder.
    ***PRAISE: 🧱 (12/2/19)… Fisher Sand & Gravel was awarded a $400M border wall contract to build 31 miles of wall in the Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Refuge in Yuma County, Arizona.
    Fisher receives $268M; another $132M could be added if all options in contract are exercised, totaling $400M… or $8.6 to $13M per mile)(Estimated contract completion date is Dec 30, 2020.
    Project: Yuma (Wellton Station) Border Wall System

    ***Praise: 🧱 (Project 2 complete: Feb 17)… Fisher Industries was able to build 3.5 miles of wall along the Rio Grande River in Mission, Texas. Project 2’s “water wall” design is the first border wall that’s ever been built inside the floodplain.

    ***Praise: 🔍 (Reported on 12/18/19)… Senator Kevin Cramer was able to complete his in-depth review of the USACE’s procurement process and send a letter with his findings and recommendations to President Trump on 12/6/19.
    ***PRAISE: 🧱 (5/6/20)… Fisher Sand & Gravel was awarded a $1.28B border wall contract to build 42 miles of wall in southern Arizona, most of which will run from Nogales to the eastern boundary of the Tohono O’odham Nation. It’s the largest border wall contract that’s ever been awarded. The project includes seven (or 8?) segments and will be painted black.
    Project: Tucson Package 3, (Complex terrain, which includes rugged mountains and water crossings)
    ***PRAISE: (6/11/20)… Foreman Mike stated that Fisher Industries now has ~95 miles of border wall contracts out of the 450. (Of the 95, only ~73 miles are accounted for in the federal awards we know about, which leaves ~21 miles from contract(s) we do not yet know about.)

    🙏 Prayer for the work crews. 🙏
    Heavenly Father, we pray in Jesus’ name (& according to Your will):
    – for safety, health, and good weather for the work crews as they continue working on WBTW’s private projects… as well as Fisher’s Federal 7.6M/800 foot contract, the 400M/31 mile contract, the 1.28B/42 mile contract for border wall, and any other projects they may be working on; that Fisher would be able to continue uninterrupted until completion.
    – that Fisher would be able to safely and smoothly transition(scale up w/ equipment & training of work crews) to be able to build 1+(to 2?) miles of wall per day.
    (Tommy Fisher has previously stated that, given a large enough project, they would be able to build 1 mile of wall per day within 3 months. So this process may have started as early as mid-April or May 6th… and will possibly be ramped up by mid-August??? Just a guess…)

    – that the DoD IG’s office audit of the $400 million border wall contract which the USACE awarded Fisher Sand & Gravel would show everything is fair and above board; that the swamp in DoD and USACE wouldn’t be able to corrupt the process; & that Fisher would be authorized to proceed with the project as planned. (Backstory/timeline)
    ***Praise: (4/15/19)… Fisher Industries has been awarded a 7.6M contract modification to build 800 linear feet of 30-foot bollard barrier while the original 400M contract is still under review by the DoD IG’s office. My guess is this will give further evidence to the IG that Fisher Industries was justified in receiving the original 400M contract. (Details)
    (Update: Fisher has built well beyond the initial 800 feet.)
    ***Praise:… Looks like work has already begun on this 31 mile project, despite the ongoing audit. Photos showing well over 800 feet of wall, started appearing around the end of April. No official word yet though.

    – for WBTW/Fisher Industries regarding the ongoing lawsuits; that both sides would be able to resolve any potential issues(erosion, construction, maintenance, etc.) and the lawsuits would be dismissed.
    (July 8)… Hearing summary…
    Representative’s for Fisher admits “there are overgrown grass and weeds and soil erosion at the site.”
    “Fisher Industries, is working to smooth out the embankment and re-seed grass that hasn’t taken…”
    Engineers from both sides haven’t been able to come together yet for a hydrology meeting.
    “Both sides expressed frustration at the lack of input from Mexican officials but blamed it on the ongoing pandemic that has struck Mexico particularly hard. ”
    “Crane — who in January ruled that the government had not provided enough evidence to stop construction of the private border wall — said he would reset the hearing for 30 more days.”
    Crane said “I really do expect by then engineers will have gotten together and I hope there is some progress on areas where grass didn’t take.”
    Fisher told BorderReport that “it takes time for the grass to grow in the sand and so areas where the grass hasn’t taken hold yet we’ll fix” … “And then if there’s any spots that it looks like it’s going to just becoming a problem then that’s where we’ll put riprap (rubble).”

    – for Fisher crews to be able fix any issues related to erosion, reseeding of grass, and applying riprap (rubble) or concrete where necessary at Project 2

    – that WBTW would be able to find corporate sponsors for Project 3. (They already have a major construction equipment manufacturer and are looking for a solar LED security lighting manufacturer or supplier.)
    – that Rep. Warren Petersen’s (R-AZ) bill, HB 2084, making it easier to build border wall on private property in Arizona would get passed.
    ***Praise: (Feb 6)… The bill passed AZ house on reconsideration with 31-29 party line vote. Next, it goes to the Senate.

    – for the bi-national summit with the Mexican IBWC and American politicians that WBTW will be hosting; for open lines of communication/understanding; and that WBTW/Fisher Industries would learn what they need to know to facilitate the sign off and approval of their projects by the Mexican IBWC.

    – for 100% safety/health/guidance/direction/salvation(through faith in Christ Jesus) for the work crews, security personnel, legal teams, CBP, DHS, Army, National Guard and all involved in WBTW/Fisher Industries private or federal projects; and for WBTW/Fisher Industries as they work with private landowners to secure more property to build on
    – that work would go smoothly with continual, innovative improvements in method/process/efficiency and quality of construction; and with transitioning as they scale up capacity(manpower, equipment, etc.) to build larger projects
    – (May 29 – CBP notice)… for Fisher to come up with innovative solutions or improvements requested by CBP “related to the anti-climb/anti-cut features of the border wall” (Deadline: June 12)
    – that there would be no outside interference (cartels, IBWC, courts/judges, protesters, swamp, etc.) and that if outside interference takes place that it would only work toward WBTW/Fisher Industries/USA’s benefit (exposing corruption, raising awareness, fundraising, etc.)

    – that Project 2’s wall will prove that the design is sound and that WBTW/Fisher Industries are capable of safely and effectively building it on a large scale in the Rio Grande Valley, with a superior build, at the lowest price
    – that the federal government would provide funding for WBTW &/or Fisher Industries to build 250+ miles of wall on Private Property in Texas
    (…assuming the “water wall” design is shown to work and be appropriate in the floodplain)
    – that the Government would purchase all of WBTW/Fisher Industries projects so the funds can be rolled into future projects and Fisher Industries will be able to scale up with additional equipment and manpower as needed.

        I am not sure if many people saw my post from last night, as it was stuck in moderation for most of the night. So here is a different article identifying Holcombe as Fisher’s new concrete contractor for their $1.3b wall contract.
        The change here, is the concrete is carted dry and mixed on site straight from the truck. This is a method popular in remote locations and long distances from concrete batching plants.

        FTA Holcombe Mixers is providing eight, high payload volumetric mixer trucks in partnership with Fisher Sand & Gravel and Cat Construction to fast-track a wall on Arizona’s southern border—the main aspect of a $1.3 billion Department of Homeland Security contract. From a single loading point, the trucks have paced stepped up concrete or grout prFTAoduction and delivery requirements for two-shift workdays common along a 45-mile jobsite.

          New info from article.
          – They are probably working 2 shifts. (16 hours per day) Now we just have to guess how many concrete pours each crew can make per shift.
          – Fisher now has at least 16 CAT excavators. I think the most I’ve seen in a photo before was 13 or 14.

          Excerpts:
          – “We made a commitment to President Trump, Homeland Security, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to get the wall up faster, and do it financially smarter. Generally, you’re pouring two to five loads per day. With Holcombe Mixers, we can pour 20 to 25 loads of fresh concrete each day and not have to worry about it exceeding required temperatures,” says Tommy Fisher, whose Dickinson, N.D., business secured a major part of the contract on the strength of a proprietary post and bollard system
          – The partnership equips Fisher S&G crews for speed and volume across a remote area where hot, arid conditions rule. Along with one Holcombe HM10H and seven HM12H volumetric models, a fleet of 16 Cat 390E track excavators is deployed to precisely hold and locate fixtured bollard posts in place as concrete footings are poured and set up.

          – “An element of control is key for a project that demands not only durability, but also the volume of fresh concrete that needs to be poured 16 hours a day,” says Brent Holcombe…

        4:50 – Bannon: Over the weekend there was kind of a hit piece on you and one of the reporters down there is saying that the wall you built actually on the river had some problems. Can you get us up to date? … So can you walk us through what this hit piece on your wall on the Rio Grande and what the reality is?

        5:23 – Fisher: Yeah sure Steve. So there was some articles written that there was major erosion to the wall and that the wall could potentially fall in the river which was absolutely nonsense.
        – Of course we built next to the river there are slopes that drain to the river that are five to one from the wall that we built. Basically two-thirds of the soil the grass took very well and it grew fast and during an eight inch and a five inch rain event basically there was no erosion on one side and minor erosion on the other… maybe about a foot deep in the sand where the grass didn’t grow.

        6:01 – So anyone who has any experience in construction will know that when you build construction or new construction you have a landscape establishment period to get the grass to grow where it needs to grow and as contractors we have other remedies that we can do with rip-rap or additional concrete.

        – So I was able to go out there two weeks ago, witnessed the wall and the road myself… There wasn’t one part of concrete that looks like it’s leaning. The road performed awesome. The border agents said it was one of the only places they could monitor the border during those large storm events.
        – So we know that once the grass takes it works, and it’s proven and we’ve seen that… So I would invite any of these engineers that so call that said this is going to fall over… I’ll meet them there next week. I’ll meet them there in two years. I’ll meet them there in ten years.
        – If you don’t know what you’re talking about you really shouldn’t start talking.

        7:02 – Bannon: Let me ask you… I want you to walk through the logic in working with DHS etc. … Why did you pick to actually build on the river which I think was obviously the most controversial versus I think was a mile inland. I know that the landowners down there wanted it on the river because the problems they were having with crossings … but walk me through your logic and who you talked to actually to construct it right on the river.

        7:34 – Fisher: So not only did we meet with landowners but also DHS officials and they said this is one of the number one trouble spots because it was actually from the tip where we built from the very bottom was almost thee miles (to) where the current government is attempting to build.
        – And so it was causing real havoc for the agents so I said if it could be built there, and Fisher likes the tough jobs, I said I think that we can design something that works… it’s got to be a different type of footing… it’s got to be a different type of makeup of the fence to a galvanized fence versus conventional steel because it’s right next to the river.
        – And so a lot of people said it couldn’t be done. We modeled it, we proved that it could be done and built there. It is done. It’s working unbelievably well and there’s a little bit of erosion maintenance that we have to maintain… But as we do that and we get the grass to grow, I believe in my heart as well as every person at DHS, this is the only solution. You have to build a border all on the border.

        8:36 – Bannon: What is literally the difference in the wall you constructed and built there (Project 2) for instance versus the one you are building in California or the proposed on that’s going to be built a little bit inland?

        9:13 – Fisher: Well the difference from what we’re building in the other three states is our wall is 18 feet tall versus 30. We’re built on a spread footing versus a vertical footing. So we sort of match the soil type we have in the Rio Grande because not all geography or geology is the same.
        – And then the biggest thing is because of the humidity there was the potential for rust and the heavy amounts of rain as we concreted the road and used the galvanized coating on the steel itself to give a long lifespan.
        – And then it’s compared to the difference of what they’re building in the Rio Grande… They’re basically building their border protection system on the current levee that separates the floodplain from the regular land where McAllen or Mission or any of the other towns are… And they’re building sort of a concrete floodwall that also has a spread footing and they basically encased bollards on top of their per se concrete.

        – So just because of the geology… that’s why we chose there and we use 26 years of my experience along with probably a couple hundred years of our engineers experience at Fisher Industries to come up with what we built.

        10:29 – Bannon: Tommy, tell us what you’re doing in California. I know you’re working with President Trump’s team down there, and DHS, and the Army Corps of Engineers… Walk the audience through what’s happening and I want to talk about how the wall is actually working to stop incursions, to stop cartels…
        – Walk us through the incursion rates, what’s dropped since you’ve built wall and what are you actually doing in California now?

        11:40 – Fisher: So there we’re working hand-in-hand with the Army Corps and the President’s team there. Everyone’s doing a great job…. Putting up 30 foot fence right on the border…
        – As far as how effective it is I know that as the wall goes up we don’t see really much traffic. We’re building in some very, very tough areas… really mountainy areas between Nogales and Sasabe.
        – That was the bigger contract, very tough grading but we sort of did the same grading like we did in the El Paso job (Project 1) with WeBuildTheWall. And I just believe that it’s a unified effort that the Corps is working hand-in-hand with the contractors to deliver for the president’s promise and wanting to secure the border.
        – So we’re just happy to have a Commander in Chief that supports that and we’re gonna try to do what the government’s direction is to us and build a high quality product.

        12:09 – Bannon discusses Project 1(New Mexico) with Tommy Fisher.

        13:40 – Bannon asks Fisher how people can get up to day or more access to Fisher regarding the wall.

        14:14 – Fisher: My thing would be is if you research… the President’s been down… they are posting a lot of stuff there… But my understanding is I think between all the contractors and with The Corps help… I’m thinking that we’re producing easily over a mile a day and it’s just an exciting time.

          Well, some of those erosion pictures under the wall in that section along the Rio Grande look very bad.

          It doesn’t look to me that grass is going to fix it.

          I support Fischer’s can-do attitude, but this tricky section right beside the river in sandy soil might not have been the correct place for the wall.

          I think Trump is getting ahead of the news, in case the Rio Grande floods and tears it all down. It will look very bad on the fake news if that happens. It will be blown way out of proportion. This is only a small piece of wall, but it could become a public relations problem.

            The bigger issue to me is when folks like Graham, Beck and Bannon knife PDJT in the back only to watch patriots welcome them back into the fold due to their use of social media and spin-marketing.

            How many millions of dollars that should be directed to PDJT’s re-election or honest, truly good work like Sundance and Judicial Watch are siphoned off to some Alex Jonesian or Steve Bannonsky projects because of their efforts to co-op go websites and MAGA projects?

            You may be right about Trump getting ahead of the news in case of flooding.

            Project 2 is vulnerable until the river bank is protected by grass or other remedies. So I guess the question is how frequent are the floods and how quickly can the grass reclaim the soil in the sandy portions with low clay content before the next flood.

            We’ll have to wait and see what Fisher crews are able to do to fix the issue over the next month.

                I doubt the left will ever support WBTW. However President Trump’s tweet seemed to indicate that Trump was misinformed on some of the details of Project 2 as Tommy Fisher suggest. Unless Trump did this intentionally to distance himself for various reasons (which may be a good idea.) For example, ships are designed with separate compartments/sections which can be sealed off when damaged so the whole ship doesn’t sink.

                Project 2 was essentially a Fisher run project as they put up most of the 42 million. So they called the shots. WBTW only had minor involvement. Whereas with Project 1 WBTW called the shots and funded the project.

                WBTW helped Fisher build their wall experience and eventually get large federal projects (95+ miles of contracts). So in that respect WBTW was successful. I’m not sure what WBTW’s role will be in the future with regard to private wall projects.

        I still don’t know why people don’t understand the CDC reccomendation that probable cases be counted in the totals as well as actual cases. This does have an influence on the total cases. CDC rambles on that they seem to think this balances the stats out somehow and that not enough cases are being reported.

        Also, the average American who is a headline reader, is only paying attention to the media spun CASES ARE GOING UP headlines. They do not get it that the more tests done the more cases show up but that lowers the death rate percentages because those are not rising as predicted. Fear mongering on a population not driven to really look at the numbers properly.

        Just once, it would be refreshing to examine the whole covid situation from the other side with emphasis on how high the percentages of recovery are. How many people are not infected? How many people recover just fine who have been infected? How is the death rate moving? Who is dying? If one media site would put the emphasis on their reports on covid from that perspective, maybe people wouldn’t be so afraid and kids could go back to school with no masks on in Sept. and the country can fully reopen. However we all know, the media is the engine of the left and the left wants fear to rule the people until the left gets it’s power and control over the people where they want it.

        Positive reporting is not going to happen though. Especially not before Nov.

It is time to replace top of CDC. When we have no confidence in them or their numbers they are irrelevant. Not only irrelevant they are a danger to the country. If they actually had some horrible danger that we need to be aware of most Americans would not believe them.

          “A path to citizenship” can mean whatever he wants it to mean. These people could have already gotten citizenship if they had followed the law. I have full confidence that President Trump is taking care of this issue in the best possible way. He is using this crisis to get it and many other things done. ( just like the democrats) We finally have a fighter in the White House. Anchor babies is the big prize that has to be won, these DACA people will fade into the background.

        “Trump’s planned order on ‘dreamers’ will not include amnesty, White House says”

        Of course, there is already a pathway to citizenship for “dreamers”. Take the nearest path to the country they were born in, visit a US Embassy and apply. Easy-peasy.”

        Any other “solution” that gives them a vise/greencard/permit while on US soil would require giving them amnesty first. Standing on US soil without a valid visa is prima facie evidence of illegal immigration status.

        Obama used the “Dreamer” action to delay prosecution, keep them in limbo, and keep them coming.

    Today, I had my first encounters with MASK NAZIS. Up to this point, I’ve been avoiding issues by going outside of town, which has worked pretty well until today when I had to go to a couple of places in town.

    The first place was a bank, one of those big globalist ones that bought up my previous 3 banks over the last 40 years (in other words, I didn’t choose them) and I’ve been trapped with them. I started using a different bank when they closed the drive thru windows and then started penalizing a person for depositing cash. However, I can’t totally get rid of them yet and still have to deal with them.

    The first thing I found today is that the branch I normally use is closed. So, I went to another branch in town and it looked like the assembly area for the cattle cars in NAZI Germany. The masked people were standing around outside looking hunched over and pathetic. There was a security guard outside forcing people to wear masks and obviously restricting entry even though it was hot as hell today. So, I decided to go to the branch outside the city limits, real inconvenient in terms of mileage but I haven’t been harassed by the MASK NAZIs at the stores I’ve gone to out there.

    Well, that branch looked OK, e.g. no pathetic people milling around outside, until I went in. There was a security guard sitting at a table blocking the way demanding that I wear a mask. I told him the Mayor had an exemption for people with breathing issues and it didn’t even phase him. He said, the CDC “guidelines” say such and such. I told him I couldn’t wear a mask for health reasons and like a good worker drone, he didn’t care. He told me I could enter the bank if it was empty as per CDC “guidelines”. I pointed out to this idiot that was impossible because the bank could NEVER be empty (who would wait on me, DUH?). I think he was just bullshitting me to yank my chain. So, I told him I was filing a complaint and he had the audacity to smugly tell me to have a nice day; the POS was putting on a performance for the few customers dutifully wearing their “masks of submission”. What an asshole.

    Of course, this globalist POS bank WOULD support the dehumanization of masks; they treat their customers like crap anyway and I look forward to eventually getting rid of them totally.

    If was funny how all the masked sheep inside this bank had a “deer in headlights” look in their eyes at the exchange. I could have told the SOB that ok, I have informed you of my medical condition that makes it hazardous to wear a mask. If I am foolish enough to endanger my health, put on a mask and then pass out hitting your concrete floor, do you think the CDC “guidelines” are going to cover YOU and this stupid bank from a personal injury lawsuit which I will file as soon as I’m out of the hospital? But I didn’t have my phone to record the exchange.

    Right now, I will have to see how to deal with these people; these big corporations are pretty much immune to complaints but probably not lawsuits. As a work around, I did use the night depository but I don’t like to do this because they are too cheap to send receipts which is why once a month I go in personally.

    Now, the second encounter with a Mask NAZI was at a local produce market INSIDE of the city limits and it surprised me. I get 10 feet inside the door and this jackass women, who I suppose was an employee, literally charged at me gesturing wildly. She was hostile and aggressive demanding I wear a mask. I pointed out to her that I had a medical exemption as per the mask order. This obnoxious individual literally rolled her eyes and shook her head and was obviously pissed off at me having the audacity to challenge her perceived authority. I told her I was NOT wearing a mask due to childhood pneumonia. She literally stomped off but charged me again a couple of minutes later and angrily told me to get out of the store as fast as possible because I didn’t have a mask. She was obnoxious and aggressive. She was acting like a nut job.

    Well, this happened at a local, family owned store and I am drafting a letter of complaint to the owner. This idiot woman is violating the Mayor’s mask order which has exemptions.

    There are several exceptions to the mask order but this is the one that applies to me and probably most people my age(68):

    A person who has one or more medical conditions or disabilities that prevent wearing a face covering, including anyone who has trouble breathing or is unconscious, incapacitated, or otherwise unable to remove a face covering without assistance. A person asserting this exception for medical conditions or disabilities is NOT required to carry or produce documentation verifying the health condition to a business or law enforcement.

    This angry clown woman was violating the order and violating my civil rights. I will send the letter of complaint to the owner and if it happens again, I will be ready to document it and send documentation and a complaint to the Mayor because based on his exceptions, he didn’t intend for people who cannot wear a mask to be discriminated against.

    I am really disappointed that so many people, young healthy people are dutifully following the useless mask order during the SUMMER! With no push back against these “Mask of Submission” orders, they continue to escalate. That idiot health official in TX was telling people to wear a mask ALL the time, even at home. How stupid and insane is that? Today, as I was driving home, I saw some guy walking out to his mailbox wearing a mask!!!!!

    If a local business discriminates against you and doesn’t honor the exemption, you need to raise hell about it. That’s the action I’m taking whenever it happens to me. We have to stop this attack on our civil rights. JMHO

      Thank you for sharing, and I am sorry this happened to you! The mask Nazis are getting worse. If someone, anyone, does not find a way to shut this insanity down, and soon (for one, provide clarity on the stats so people calm the F down), I fear we will be wearing masks for years. Less chance that anything will get back to normal the longer this goes on. It’s becoming entrenched. Neighborhoods and towns that used to be ok are now turning full on mask Nazi And people are more freaked out than ever. And the Commie politicos just keep getting more and more drunk with power. I feel like we are in a Sci Fi movie. A scary one.

      Secondly, just a suggestion. Print up on an index card the words in your comment regarding medical exceptions.

      And, when you encounter a mask nazi, pull out your phone like you are filming the encounter; don’t be real obvious about it.

      As for me, I wear my mask; ear loops over each ear, and the mask on top of my head.
      “But I AM wearing a mask. The mandate says NOTHING about HOW, just says WEAR one,…and I AM.

      Show me one person here wearing their mask “properly” which is with a good seal, and I’ll EAT this mask.

      Besides, I have a medical exemption.
      I am Constitutionally bullshit intolerant!

      YOU however, SHOULD wear a face diaper, as you are obviously fulla sh*t, love to talk cr*p, and have diarrhea of the mouth!”

      So, my speach is already, but haven’t encountered any mask nazis, yet! ;-(

      “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

      Interesting encounters…please name the bank. You’ve hinted this is in Texas, correct?

      Yesterday I went to a GoodWill store that just reopened in Virginia. Immediately upon entering the store a cashier yelled at me to put on a mask. I told him I had an exemption per Virginia Executive Order #63 so he called the store manager. I showed her the EO that I carry with me and have the exemptions marked in yellow highlight. She started reading over the entire 3-page EO so I cut her off and directed her to the exemptions. Frustrated, she said I’d have to wear a store-provided clear face shield.

      I relented and she went to the back and came out with a clear shield in a sealed plastic bag and said I could have it when I left the store. Problem was, there is only a 3/4″ strip on the top that is see-through and the remaining 10″ is a dulled out, semi-opaque screen, so I could not really see much. It was ridiculous.

      At another chain clothing store they kicked me out for not having a mask. When I asked what authority they had, since the Virginia EO says I am exempt, he cited the CDC guidelines was what they used for authority. So I left.

      I can relate to your experience, FL Guy. Last week I went to my bank, “one of those big globalist ones,” with the purpose of closing my checking and savings accounts because the bank started charging a $25 monthly fee. (My new bank has no such charge.)

      I encountered the same situation…. pathetic sheep lined up outside in the AZ heat, their faces covered, the security guy blocking the door, allowing people inside one at a time.

      I approach with no mask and am told I cannot enter. I had driven 38 miles to get to the bank and I was VERY anxious to kick that bank out of my life, so I accepted a disposable mask and put it on, saying “I’m only doing this so I can close my accounts.”

      Typically the bank teller explained the fees for various methods for removing my money, unless I took it in cash. I didn’t want to do that, but I would’ve jumped over the plexiglass and robbed that damn bank (heck, I already was masked up!) before I’d let them take another dime from me. I took my cash, ripping off that mask and throwing it in the trash on the way out.

      Then I go to WalMart and I’m not allowed inside without a mask. I drive over to a dollar store and buy enough groceries (hopefully) to build up my pantry stock in preparation for inevitable further encroachments of my rights to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”

      The perfect storm.

      COVID (the disease) is an autoimmune response to dormant animal viruses, injected into us over the years in “contaminated” flu vaccines.

      SARS-Cov-2 (wuhan virus) has a unique “feature” – it triggers the activation of dormant retroviruses. Our bodies’ immune system kicks in and that immune system response can be very severe leading to acute respiratory failure. These dormant viruses do not cause syptoms when first injected, they do dormant in our tissues, undetectable by blood tests.

    Several posts/comments on CTH in recent weeks have had videos of young people waking up and in for Trump. Folks who weeks/days ago were veritable antifa fans. One yesterday was of “rudejude” who was taking a big red pill. To quote her, “i am a registered Democrat. Last week I was trolling this man’s sh*t. I would have spit in his face and pi*sed in his coffee for free. What made me flip the switch so strongly.”

    You go to her twitter and see others who are mere weeks into the understanding. So, they are way out in front of their lines. As SD puts it, “outside the wire.” They are probably losing friends and being called awful names right now. Maybe threatened even. They are young and have strength beyond their years for what is to come. I am not comparing Trump to someone, but think of the biblical parable of the sower of seeds. Some on good ground, some on rocky ground, some among thorns and weeds.

    These freshly wakened folks are seeds sown in shallow/rocky soil and some among weeds and thorns (antifa). Something very big and obvious needs to happen (replant in good soil, rip out the weeds and thorns) to prove to these probable November Trump voters they are on the right path. These are fresh voters for the Trump side. Something needs to happen to show them their risk and getting outside their comfort zone was not a fools errand.

But, kids are resilient – we know this because many are able to survive crazy parents. Like little hatchling turtles some will reach the sea and some will become independent thinkers.

    SOCIAL DISTANCING AKA QUARANTINE
    With not a whit of science in support, Social Distancing which is a mutually exclusive phrase since there is nothing social about enforced distancing from other humans, has been attributed to a CIA protocol in use since the 1950’s to break a prisoner’s resistance or a teenage science project.

    In any case, SD has proven a great way to erode an individual’s normal need for social contact, to effectively starve the brain function of human interaction and comparable to other emotionally unhealthy deprivations. As former Vietnam POW John McCain related “It crushes your spirit more effectively than any other form of mistreatment.”

    Rules 3 and 44 of the Nelson Mandela Rules warn of being cut off from the outside world and prohibits more than two weeks of isolation as cruel and inhumane treatment.
