    Gov Noem was great: the ONLY Gov to keep her state open.
    Then a Minnesota logging guy: MN is a battleground, he talked about jobs, jobs, jobs under Trump but also about how they’re improving the forests to cut back danger from wildfires (wake up and LISTEN, Gov Newsom!)
    Now Crenshaw talking, pretty dang authentic.

    Gen Kellogg: I was in the Pentagon on 9/11. I lost friends that day.
    Lots of non-politicians, and I like them better than the politicoes.

    An interesting chart on deaths by age cohort under all means of suicide —

    My guess on why the 1970,1975 cohort is so low — disco could put anybody to sleep.

    I’m guessing “no” on Allen West but he’d be a great addition.

    Don Lemon (pronounced: “Dip$hit”) has been calling for MORE “protests” and denying the EXISTENCE of rioting, looting and mayhem for months. MORE violence, Donny believed, was THE path to victory for the Democrats.

    But after a while it became impossible for even the current corrupt media to cover up what is REALLY going on. So Donny pleaded (really) on Tuesday that: “The rioting has to stop … it’s showing up in the polling, it’s showing up in focus groups.”

    Note that Donny doesn’t lament the destruction, the lives and livelihood lost, and the coming DECADES of decay in those areas when people flee. Nope. It’s the “polling” and “focus groups” that concern him.

    Just ahead of the famous ‘Casablanca’ clip where Captain Renault is “shocked SHOCKED to find out gambling is going on!”, is the scene where Major Strasser ORDERS Renault to close the cafe. “But why?”, he laments, “everyone is having such a good time!”

    Poor Donny Lemon, he is playing the part of Captain Renault…and has been told by the Party that the fun has to stop! 🙂

    Yet CNN is the self-appointed judges of truth, informing Americans who is lying (Republicans) and who isn’t (Democrats). This comes from a group (so-called journalists) who the American public rates poorly in terms of honesty and ethics.

    “The Democrats’ goal is to keep their platform and agenda hidden from voters.”

    Kinda hard to do when their ‘agenda’ is running up and down the boulevard burning down businesses.

    GOP has not done it yet, but a hard push to link the DNC with the rioters would cook their goose.

    Apparently some organization known as the ‘NBA’, which used to have something to do with some sport (I think it’s Badminton), was going to boycott themselves, then they decided not to, then some of the badminton players refused to not boycott themselves, and…it’s confusing.

    I guess badminton pays REALLY well, since all the players are multi-multi-millionaires!! Which makes them REALLY smart and REALLY virtuous!!

    NASA has confirmed that if the badminton players do NOT resume playing, our solar system and maybe even our galaxy will be in real peril. So please, folks, take this seriously!!

    p.s., I know from the picture it is difficult to tell which one is LeBron James…but I’m sure he’s in there somewhere. 🙂

    More TX news, via comments at JustOneMinute blog.

    “Texas county undergoes audit, finds that active rona cases were being massively overreported.
    Reported number on 8/25: 4338
    Revised number on 8/26: 81
    You read that right.
    But I’m sure that problem is just happening in one county, right?”
