    Watching our LION in action.
    ‘They’ taught him everything he knows.

    All those years as a Democrat – donating to Democrat campaigns and causes
    Rubbing elbows with the likes of Jesse Jackson
    Then there are folks like Chuck Schumer and Jerry Nadler
    Learning what the games are – and who the players are
    Other NY bigwigs, i am sure. Attendance at NY parties and events were not wasted

    Oh, the irony

    As i watch things unfold I keep chuckling to myself – they don’t really know POTUS – but HE knows THEM!

      That is one of the arguement I make when ever they call POTUS horrible things
      criminal,horrible human being.. Then why when he was Private Citizen Trump did they take him money for thier campaigns (have any of them returned that money?) why would they want money from such a horrid person. Why did they want to hang out with him. be seen with him or evem be on his TV SHOW if he was so vile and horrible.

      There are only two explanations.. either he really isn;t as horrible as they make him out to be OR they knew it and didn;t care because they got something out of it what does that say about them? Why did the media want to do interviews with Donald Trump and they were pretty respectful of him if you watch old interviews why would they want to interview such a horrible person?

        You have watched our VSG P DJT. When you are talking he is focused on YOU – what you are saying, body language, eyes. Not much escapes him.

        Or, who are the people opposed to what he is planning – how do they obstruct him.
        Remember the story about the union strike when he was building Trump Tower? In order to get cement he ‘negotiated’ to build an apartment for the union boss’ girlfriend.

        He knows THEM. They don’t know HIM
        The irony – ‘they’ taught him everything he needed to know to do what he is doing for us (U.S.)

    I don’t know how long this will be allowed to be available but this explains the objectives of the Davos new world order and WE are the target. Covid is a ploy or a tool that they have used and it would appear intentionally deployed. They don’t care how many die and they certainly don’t want the US to prosper except under their authoritarian control. It is going according to their plan…

    By the way, Ivermectin is another drug that cures Covid-19, and like hydroxychloriquin is inexpensive, available and effective with very few risks or side effects. Those wanting power don’t want the disease cured.

    That Biden has lost a step isn’t in dispute. Anyone as old as he is has lost a step. But it’s not just a step Joe has lost; he’s lost a staircase, even several flights. The question is: is it dementia?

    The thing about Joe Biden is, he’s never had a firm grip on reality. Perhaps not in the “mental decline” sense, but in a very real sense nonetheless.

    Everyone is the hero of their own story, but Joe is the super-hero who saves the planet on a regular basis…

      In fact they are living in a different overlapping fantasy world that the corrupt media has created for them. The perverse way the Dem media portrays President Trump and his supporters with their careful editing and other distortions is what they see in their world and few ever venture out to learn about the other side from a reliable source.

      Biden’s gaffes, blunders and glaring weaknesses are hidden from them.

    LAPD Not Down with Mayor’s Plan To Cut Utilities at House Parties
    8/9/2020

    -snipped-
    The LAPD is pushing back against Mayor Eric Garcetti’s threat to kill power at homes defying COVID-19 orders … because cops don’t want any more beef with citizens.

    LAPD sources tell TMZ … no officer wants to shut the power off at a residence, in part because many folks are already pissed at cops. We’re told they’d rather focus on reducing real crime, and not turning off home necessities.

    We’re told, cops are worried about homeowners who rely on electricity to power a breathing device or food spoiling in fridges.

    Our sources say if the decision is left to officers’ discretion … very few will follow through with Garcetti’s threat.

    Bottom line … we’re told cops will absolutely cite a homeowner for throwing an out-of-control party, but cutting someone’s power is not a burden they want to bear.

    Interesting splash/opening screen on my computer today:

    – mentioning:

    Suffrage activists in the US fought for over seventy years to secure women the right to vote.

    &

    Elizabeth Cady Stanton ran for president in 1866 – more than 50 years before US women could legally vote.

    First thought upon seeing this…confirmation that Biden has no intention of holding office if he should win. Any female he opts for VP is intended to take over the oval office.

    • Absolutely 100% incorrect about “50 years before US women could legally vote”. Where in the Constitution does it prohibit women voting? The US Constitution left that decision up to the States.

      We have always been taught that the 19th Amendment gave women the right to vote, but how could it? Women always had the right to vote nationally! So, the 19th Amendment did not “give” them that right.

      Since that amendment did not give them the right to vote, what did it do?
      In reality, what it did was to give the federal government more power by letting them determine the qualification of voters….something the Constitution left to the States or the People.

      IMO, the local media aren’t the only ones actively downplaying this story to preserve the “peaceful protesters” narrative.

      The Wauwatosa Police Department’s “Immediate Release” is shamefully wishy washy at the end. The wording should have been much harsher given a shotgun blast entered the Mensah family’s back door. Several serious lines were crossed here by these despicable thugs and the police response needs to be quick and severe.

      In fairness, the Police Dept. reps might have wanted to release a stronger worded response but they could have been restrained by their craven city officials.
