Friday News Roundup: Texas Vote Fraud Ring Busted, Democrat Riots Keep Multiplying

But MSNBC and CNN no doubt think he was a “mostly peaceful” police shooter. – Law enforcement officials in Louisville arrested the scumbag who shot two of their fellow officers during that city’s rioting on Wednesday.

The man was wearing a Sugarhill hoodie – because of course he was – and was so well-trained in terrorist tactics that he was using his fellow BLM terrorists as human shields.

No word yet of CNN and/or MSNBC have offered the guy a 6 figure “contributor” agreement, but it seems likely given recent history.

But…but…but…Jake Tapper and Rachel Maddow have assured us that voter fraud is a myth. They wouldn’t lie to us, would they?  – Well, of course they would. That’s what they’re paid to do. Wake up.

On Thursday, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced the arrest and indictment of a Democrat county commissioner and three fellow Democrats who had set up an illegal vote-harvesting operation in an effort to steal a Democrat Party primary election in 2018. AG Paxton further detailed that the four Democrats were subject to no fewer than 134 counts of felony voter fraud activities.

From a piece at Fox News:

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced four arrests Thursday on dozens of felony charges in connection with an alleged vote harvesting scheme during the 2018 Democratic primary elections in Gregg County.

“It is an unfortunate reality that elections can be stolen outright by mail ballot fraud,” Paxton said in a statement. “Election fraud, particularly an organized mail ballot fraud scheme orchestrated by political operatives, is an affront to democracy and results in voter disenfranchisement and corruption at the highest level.”

Gregg County Commissioner Shannon Brown, Marlena Jackson, Charlie Burns and DeWayne Ward face 134 felony charges in total, according to Paxton’s office. The allegations include election fraud, tampering with a governmental record, mail-in ballot fraud and more.

“To increase the pool of ballots needed to swing the race in Brown’s favor, the group targeted young, able-bodied voters to cast ballots by mail by fraudulently claiming the voters were ‘disabled,’ in most cases without the voters’ knowledge or consent,” Paxton’s office alleged.

TEXAS AG KEN PAXTON SAYS THERE’S ‘A LOT OF VOTER FRAUD’ INVOLVING MAIL-IN BALLOTS

Of the total charges, 97 felony counts were leveled against Jackson, 30 of them for alleged election fraud.

Just to be complete, here’s a photo of the Democrat perps:

Yes, Virginia, there is voter fraud in America.

Democrats: “Trump is attacking our norms and institutions!!!!!!!!!”

Also Democrats: Democrats Prepare Bill to Limit Judicial Terms to 18 Years.

From a story at Fox News:

Democrats plan to introduce legislation that would limit the length of a term a Supreme Court justice could serve to less than two decades as President Trump prepares to announce a candidate to fill Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat this weekend.

Rep. Ro Khanna, D-Calif., who is the lead sponsor, is expected to introduce the bill next week, a spokesperson for Rep. Khanna confirmed in an emailed statement to Fox News on Thursday.

The bill would limit justices’ terms to 18 years, a spokesperson for Rep. Don Beyer, D-Va., who also worked on the legislation, told Fox News.

In a post on Twitter, Khanna said the measure was important to ensure all presidents have “an equal chance to appoint justices.”

Rep. Joe Kennedy III, D-Mass., who is also reportedly co-sponsoring the legislation, penned a post that accused Trump of using the courts to “steal health care from millions, rollback LGBTQ+ and immigrant rights, overturn Roe v. Wade, and launch voter suppression efforts.”

Currently, justices do not have term limits. The average term of a justice appointed between 1966 and to present day is about 25 years.

[End]

By the way, Ro Khanna, the bill’s chief sponsor, is a communist who served as the chief spokesman for Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign.

You seriously could never make these people up.

Meanwhile, on the Democrat-sponsored riot front… – Democrat Party-affiliated terrorists continued to execute their Party’s chaos strategy in various cities overnight, as the Biden campaign continues to need all the distractions it can get.

Here are some of the lowlights:

In Portland:

In Seattle:

In Los Angeles:

In Louisville:

A vote for Joe Biden or any other Democrat on the ballot is a vote for this. That’s just a fact.

Wednesday News Roundup: Alyssa Milano Sparks an Emergency and Portland Rioters Form a Mosh Pit

For those who follow polls… – The new ABC/WaPo poll of Florida and Arizona has President Trump leading in both states and Martha McSally essentially even with Democrat Mark Kelly in the senate race there:

This poll continues to significantly over-sample Democrats. This is also the poll, remember, that had Hillary Clinton 13 points up just 3 weeks ahead of Election Day, 2016.

That reality, combined with Trump’s voter enthusiasm edge and the fact that the GOP has rung up big voter registration margins in both of those states since 2016 likely means that the President is well ahead in both states. And that doesn’t even account for the “shy” Trump voter phenomenon, which I am convinced is a significantly larger factor than any of the pundits believe in this election.

Think about it: If you are a Trump supporter, would you provide honest answers to a pollster who called you out of the blue some night? Do you know a single other Trump supporter who would? Yeah, neither do I.

The current Democrat hypocrisy over “norms” in 100 words or less:

Democrats: “We’re gonna pack the Supreme Court!”
“We’re gonna abolish the Electoral College!!”
“We’re gonna abolish the Filibuster!!!”
“We’re gonna add two new states so we can have a permanent majority!!!!!!!!!!!”

Trump: “I’m going to nominate a replacement for Ruth Bader Ginsburg as I’m required to do under the Constitution.”

Democrats: “Trump is destroying our norms and traditions!!!!!!!”

*sigh*

Here is Creepy Uncle Joe Biden, giving the “White Supremacy” sign…

Image may contain: one or more people

Where’s the media outrage?

Speaking of Democrat hypocrisy… – Alyssa Milano is an emotionally unstable nitwit d-list actress who spends most of her time these days screeching on her Twitter account and pretending to be an “activist” on any faddish leftist cause that comes down the pike. The leftist fad that came down the pike this summer, of course, was the Democrat movement to “defund the police,” a movement that most Democrat politicians are now running away from like a hot potato because of horrific polling numbers.

But not poor Alyssa, who is notoriously slow to learn, so she’s still hot on the “defund the police case.”

So, what did she and her cowardly husband do when they heard some popping noises that they thought were coming out of their backyard? Did her hubby grab a baseball bat and bravely venture out into the yard to see what all the racket was about? No. Did Alyssa herself grab the pepper spray she keeps handy in case she crosses paths with someone wearing a “MAGA” cap? No. Did the terminally dim couple even bother to look out the window to see if they could spot some mad man with a gun? No.

Instead, this pair of crusading leftwing police defunders did what most other Americans do whenever they believe they are under attack: They called the police, of course, and all manner of hysteria and hilarity occurred.

From a report at the Daily Mail:

EXCLUSIVE: ‘Defund the police’ activist Alyssa Milano calls 911 sparking massive police presence in her quiet California neighborhood claiming an armed an gunman was on her property – but it was really a teen shooting at squirrels with an air gun

  • Actress Alyssa Milano called police when she believed an armed gunman was on her Bell Canyon property in California on Sunday morning
  • At least seven Ventura County Sheriffs’ vehicles, one K-9 unit, a police helicopter and one Los Angeles Fire Department team sat down the street on standby
  • DailyMail.com obtained exclusive photos showing the first responders coming to the aid of the actress and activist who is pro defunding the police 
  • ‘It turned out it was a neighborhood teen with an air gun shooting at squirrels,’ a resident told the DailyMail.com 
  • Alyssa and her husband Dave Bugliari were also concerned that it may be someone stalking the former Charmed and Who’s The Boss star
  •  The 47-year-old lives in an 8,000 square foot, $2.5 million home in the upscale gated community that sits just 20 minutes north of Los Angeles

The 47-year-old lives in an 8,000 square foot, $2.5 million home in the upscale gated community that sits just 20 minutes north of Los Angeles

Actress and ‘Defund the police’ activist Alyssa Milano was quick to call cops when she believed an armed gunman was on her Bell Canyon property on Sunday morning.

The call ignited a response that included seven Ventura County Sheriffs’ vehicles, one K-9 unit, a police helicopter and one Los Angeles Fire Department team that sat down the street on standby.

DailyMail.com has obtained exclusive photos showing the first responders coming to the aid of the 47-year-old at her five bed, six bath, 8,000 square foot, $2.5 million home in the upscale gated community that sits just 20 minutes north of Los Angeles.

A neighbor tells DailyMail.com, ‘We first noticed the helicopter circling overhead very low and knew something was going on, it’s usually such a quiet community. Then we saw all the police cars parked in front of Alyssa’s home. They had their guns at the ready and seemed very serious.’

At least seven Ventura County Sheriffs' vehicles, one K-9 unit, a police helicopter and one Los Angeles Fire Department team sat down the street on standby, seen in DailyMail.com

[End]

In all, at least 7 Ventura County Sheriff’s cars arrived at the scene, only to discover that the “mad man with a gun” was in fact a kid with an air gun who was trying to shoot a squirrel.

You could never, never, ever make this stuff up.

Meanwhile, in Riot City, USA… – The hijinks got real in Portland last night, as the local cops interrupted a really bad rapper who was disrupting yet another of the city’s residential neighborhoods:

Stopping that rapper was a real community service right there.

Meanwhile, more Democrat-sponsored rioters formed an impromptu mosh pit in front of the ubiquitous Penumbra Kelly Building:

At another point, police hamstrung by the city’s corrupt Communist Democrat Mayor, Ted Wheeler, were forced to back away by a bunch of pasty-faced, chubby, white Gen-Zers who live in their grandmother’s basements:

Oh, hey, the rioters are armed with mortars now – did the Democrats in congress do a budget appropriation for that?:

On and on it goes. What a country we have  become.

That is all.

As Trump Secures Support for his Nominee, Biden Calls Another Lid **UPDATED**

The Biden campaign has got to be the biggest joke in U.S. presidential history at this point. Here we are, just 42 days before Election Day, and the Democrat Party’s Unfrozen Caveman Candidate is so feeble that his handlers are keeping him holed up in his basement for the 2nd time in just the last 4 days:

The distressing thing is that this is nothing new at all for the Biden campaign, which has had to put a lid early on random mornings at least once or twice a week for months now as their elderly, declining candidate recuperates. Speculation continues to grow that Biden is mainlining some form of anti-dementia medication as he has had an omni-present needle mark on his left hand for weeks now:

His elder-abusing campaign handlers called a lid on Saturday by 8:00 a.m. Today, they waited until 9:22, perhaps because they had hoped he might be able to keep whatever TelePrompter speech to a fake audience they had schedule for him. But yesterday’s trip to Wisconsin obviously proved too much for Creepy Uncle McWifeMolester, and so the Campaign That Never Was is left without a ticket-topper for another day.

That’s a big problem since Democrat leaders have obviously decided they cannot push the god-awful campaigner Kamala Harris out front whenever Biden is unable to perform. Why they ever thought things would be any different with Harris than they were last year, when she turned off everyone she met during her utterly failed nomination pursuit, is a real mystery. She is just the most incurably dislikeable person on earth.

Meanwhile, as the Biden/Harris Harris/Biden ticket was attempting to revive its candidate, Senate Republicans continued to telegraph that they will not only plan to vote on President Trump’s nominee prior to Election Day, but they also have the votes to get that candidate confirmed. That’s the message sent by both Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham and Judiciary member Ted Cruz, but also by Leader Mitch McConnell.

Their confidence was shored up this morning by none other than the King of the RINOs Mitt Romney, who released the following statement:

“The Constitution gives the President the power to nominate and the Senate the authority to provide advice and consent on Supreme Court nominees,” the Utah Republican said in a statement. “Accordingly, I intend to follow the Constitution and precedent in considering the President’s nominee. If the nominee reaches the Senate floor, I intend to vote based upon their qualifications.”

During a brief press availability in a Senate Office Building hallway, Romney clarified that he will support whatever process Graham and McConnell agree to on the nomination. He further clarified that he would not – unlike fellow RINOs Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski – object to a process that results in holding the confirmation vote before Election Day.

Despite some very misleading media reports that followed his remarks, however, Romney did NOT commit to voting to confirm the Trump nominee, which is fine. Frankly, it’s hard for any senator to commit to voting to confirm a nominee whose name is currently unknown.

The President himself made it clear that he will name his nominee on Saturday, and plans to meet with potential nominee Barbara Lagoa on a campaign trip to Florida on Friday, as reported by Axios:

President Trump plans to meet with shortlisted Supreme Court candidate Barbara Lagoa during a campaign visit to Florida on Friday, according to two sources familiar with his plans.

What we’re hearing: Sources who know both Trump and Lagoa say they still expect the president to pick Judge Amy Coney Barrett, but they view the Lagoa meeting as a wild card because they say she has a charismatic personality that would appeal to Trump.

  • The majority view in Trump’s inner circle is that Barrett would be easier to confirm because senators are familiar with her. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has told Trump that senators feel comfortable with Barrett.
  • A source close to the process said anything that complicates the confirmation proceedings — and allows more time for Democrats to inject “mischief” — is to be avoided at all costs. More education would be needed for senators who are less familiar with Lagoa, the source added.
  • Trump met with Barrett at the White House on Monday.

[End]

So, the nomination appears to have come down to Lagoa or Amy Coney Barrett.

Trump Confirms Barbara Lagoa, Amy Coney Barrett on Supreme Court Short List

Both women are incredibly well-qualified to fill this seat, and anyone voting against either of them would be doing so for purely partisan reasons.

Later today, after putting in a full day of work, the President will travel to Pittsburgh where he will speak for an hour or two before yet another massive campaign rally. All of that and more while his feeble opponent is recuperating in his basement.

That’s basically the state of this campaign.

**UPDATE** Here is a chart showing every day the Biden campaign has called a lid before noon during September:

That’s 8 times in just 22 days.

What a joke.

That is all.

Discussion Post – 9.21.2020

Lamar Alexander, one of the most unreliable RINOs in the U.S. Senate, said yesterday that he has no issue with moving ahead to confirm President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee. When even Lamar Alexander is able to summon a little intestinal fortitude around a conservative cause, that is reason for optimism.

Also, today is the last day of summer, the deadline Attorney General William Barr set for Americans finally being able to see some fruit from the John Durham investigation. Durham is obviously not going to release a report today, because that would have leaked long ago due to the internal vetting process at DOI.

So, unless you see some arrests or indictment announcements unveiled today, you can safely assume that Mr. Durham won’t be doing anything prior to Election Day.

Discuss away.

Tuesday News Roundup: Pedophiles and Democrats, a Lull in Riots and Kamala Makes a Flub

Hey, no biggie. Every presidential candidate accidentally uses pedophiles in his campaign. – Oh, he’s a Netflix star, too? Man, what a  completely accidental, like, coincidence and stuff.

Excerpt:

The Daily Wire is reporting that the FBI raided the home of a Biden campaign surrogate yesterday on suspicion of attempting to sexually abuse minors. Jerry Harris, who is not-at-all-surprisingly described as a “Star” on the kiddie porn streaming service Netflix, was accused by 14 year-old twin brothers who claim the actor – who also starred in a Biden/Harris campaign video – began attempting to have sex with them when they were 13 and the predator was 19:

Harris, a celebrity cheerleader who was recently featured in Netflix’s “Cheer” docuseries, appeared in a video with Biden earlier this summer.

In a piece titled “FBI Raids Home of Netflix Star and Biden Surrogate Over Underage Sex Allegation,” The Washington Free Beacon reported:

Just three months ago the Biden campaign used Harris, who has over a million followers on Instagram, as part of Biden’s push to sway young voters and “win back the internet,” Time magazine reported. The Instagram live video of Harris and Biden was viewed nearly 300,000 times and remains on social media.

It appears that following the publication of the Free Beacon’s report that the social media post was removed from Instagram.

“Nine law enforcement agents spent about three hours Monday afternoon in Harris’ home in Naperville, Illinois,” USA Today added. “The allegations against Harris have been reported to at least four other law enforcement agencies in Texas and Florida.”

The news comes after Netflix has faced backlash in recent days over a highly controversial film that has been widely accused of sexualizing young children. Both prominent Republicans and Democrats have spoken out against the film.

[End]

For the record, the only “prominent Democrat” who has spoken out against Netflix’s kiddie porn film is Tulsi Gabbard. Also not surprisingly, Gabbard has been shunned by the rest of her Democrat colleagues. It is a complete mystery how Gabbard, who seems like a normal person with both liberal views and an actual sense of morality, can rationalize keeping the “D” next to her name at this point.

Speaking of the Harris Campaign… – Oh, wait: It’s supposed to be the ‘Biden’/Harris campaign, right? Well, not if you ask Kamala Harris her own self:

“A Harris administration, together with Joe Biden…”

These Democrats keep saying the part they aren’t supposed to say.

It’s a real clown show at the House Intelligence Committee. – No, really, it’s a real, actual clown show:

If you’re forgetting for a moment who Ed Buck is, he’s the huge California Democrat donor who is also a serial murderer of gay prostitutes in his mansion.

And, as usual, Adam Schiff is lying and projecting. President Trump fired the last DNI for being a tool of the Deep State who was actively participating in a coup d’etat. President Trump has not ended the brieifings, his current DNI, a loyal American named John Ratcliffe, has simply changed the mode of communicating those briefings to Schiff’s committee, putting them in writing and thus denying Schiff an opportunity to lie about what the briefers said during hearings when he leaks classifed information to the New York Times and CNN.

And speaking of gay prostitutes… – We’re coming full circle now. Remember Andrew Gillum, the married guy with two kids who almost managed to get elected governor of Florida in 2018, with the help from our dumpster fire news media? The same married guy with two kids who got caught passed out on the floor with a gay prostitute and all manner of illegal narcotics when police raided a cheap hotel room? The same guy who initially denied knowing the gay prostitute was in fact a gay prostitute and claimed to know nothing about all the illegal drugs? Who claimed he just got drunk and missed all of the other fun?

Yeah, that guy. So, yesterday, the dumpster fire media campaign to rehabilitate him into a viable Democrat political candidate continued as he did a puffball interview with fake reporter Tamron Hall at CNN. During that interview, Gillum claimed to “identify as bisexual,” which of course makes him a “protected minority” in the eyes of Democrat voters, who will now forget all about the prostitute and the drugs and all the lying he did after his arrest and all the years of lying he did when he pretended to be a happily-married father of two children.

Because that’s what Democrats do.

Riots, riots, where are the riots? – Not in Portland anymore since the DNC memo about bad polling went out. Nor in Lancaster, where BLM/Antifa goons set off a riot Sunday to protest a completely justified police shooting of this guy:

BLM/Antifa goons funded by the Democrat Party did try to assault a police officer in Sacramento on Monday. One of them made a big mistake:

Meanwhile, as Andy Ngo points out here, even the news-fakers at the Washington Post are figuring out that – shock! – some of these Antifa/BLM people are spreading violent messages on social media.

Wonder what tipped them off?

UPDATE ON SITE ISSUES

I spent much of the day at the hospital today with a dehydration issue – collapsed in the street while I was taking my daily walk. I am told the site has been having more issues while I was gone. What a surprise.

GoDaddy is having big-time server issues right now, not just with this site, but with many other sites as well. I’ve been with GoDaddy since January 2017 and this is the first time they have not been able to resolve an issue immediately. Their customer service is truly excellent, so I am bearing with them. Having worked on half a dozen major IT conversion projects in my career, I know from experience how maddening these issues can be at times.

Please bear with me – I’m dealing with all of this as diligently as possible. I know the response time is ludicrously slow right now, but it will get better soon.

Thanks.

Discussion Post for Monday, September 9

Everyone: GoDaddy, my web hosting company, is having a major issue right now that they have been unable to resolve over the last week. That is the reason why you have seen so many corrupted pieces from me over the past several days, and it’s the reason why I took Sunday off. I just had to get away from the struggle.

GoDaddy’s issue is one that is impacting many websites, not just this one. So, nobody’s trying to shut me down and nobody has hacked my site.

One of the big glitches this issue has caused recently is that some of my posts go up without the Comments sections being open. So, until GoDaddy gets this issue resolved, I’ll be putting up a post like this one each morning to accommodate my regular commenters.

If it gains enough traction, we might even make it a permanent feature.

Lots to talk about today. Comment away!

Tuesday News Roundup: AP Slams Cuomo and the Portland Riots Expand Again

The purge continues in Seattle. – The lone bright spot in Seattle’s city government, Police Chief Carmen Best, resigned yesterday, giving the communist Democrats on the city council and in the mayor’s office a victory as they consolidate their efforts to completely destroy that city.

Sadly, probably to preserve her pension, Chief Best  thanked worthless communist Democrat Mayor Jenny Durkan for “her continuous support.” Best and Durkan clashed repeatedly during the June riots and the six-week-long CHAZ/CHOP atrocity, as Durkan steadfastly refused to allow the police department to use all the tools at its disposal to protect the citizens of the city.

Durkan and her fellow communist Democrats will now have the opportunity to hire a fellow Soros-funded lunatic to help them finish killing off the city’s police department. If you live in Seattle and have the means to move away from it, the time to do so is now.

When did Preacher Pete become a woman of color? – Imagine my surprise to get up this morning and see Pete Buttigeig trending on Twitter. We haven’t seen or heard from the former South Bend mayor in many weeks, since his Quixotic pursuit of the Democrat nomination came to an unceremonious end.

But suddenly, there he is, trending on Twitter amid speculation that his name has somehow made its way onto the list of possible running mates for Creepy Uncle Quid Pro Farty China Joe Biden, the Democrat Party’s Unfrozen Caveman Presumptive Nominee. Not that it would be surprising if Biden’s handlers decided to shift away from that promise that their addled candidate rashly made several months ago, given the fact that every one of the “women of color” we have seen vetted thus far would immediately become dead weight to the campaign.

But Preacher Pete? A pasty-white, 30-something gay guy from South Bend, where he is detested by the city’s Black community? That would be a radical shift, indeed.

But hey, it’s probably not about the VEEP slot at all. We should remember that while he was out making rash promises, Biden promised Mayor Pete a prominent role in his administration should he win the election. Biden will be announcing a proposed cabinet soon, and don’t be surprised if Preacher Pete’s name is penciled in as Secretary of State or Defense.

No, I’m not kidding.

Watch as President Trump, at his presser yesterday, lays out a laundry list of those known to be involved in the Obamagate scandal, including Susan Rice, who he refers to as a “potential liability” as a running mate for Biden:

Historic stuff.

Speaking of historic stuff, the President was rushed out of that press briefing earlier after a shooting took place outside of the White House grounds:

After he came back in, one idiot reporter asked him if he was “shaken” by the incident.

Trump responded: “Do I look shaken to you?” and then changed the subject to the booming stock market. Because that’s what a boss does.

Hilarious.

Holy cow, a random act of actual journalism just happened at the Associated Press! – I’m not kidding, y’all. Somehow, the Democrat toady editors at AP failed to catch an actual report about how Andrew Cuomo’s government is severely under-counting the number of elderly folks his policies have managed to kill in that state’s nursing home during the COVID-19 pandemic.

From the AP story:

New York’s true nursing home death toll cloaked in secrecy

NEW YORK (AP) — Riverdale Nursing Home in the Bronx appears, on paper, to have escaped the worst of the coronavirus pandemic, with an official state count of just four deaths in its 146-bed facility.

The truth, according to the home, is far worse: 21 dead, most transported to hospitals before they succumbed.

“It was a cascading effect,” administrator Emil Fuzayov recalled. “One after the other.”

New York’s coronavirus death toll in nursing homes, already among the highest in the nation, could actually be a significant undercount. Unlike every other state with major outbreaks, New York only counts residents who died on nursing home property and not those who were transported to hospitals and died there.

That statistic that could add thousands to the state’s official care home death toll of just over 6,600. But so far the administration of Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo has refused to divulge the number, leading to speculation the state is manipulating the figures to make it appear it is doing a better than other states and to make a tragic situation less dire.

“That’s a problem, bro,” state Sen. Gustavo Rivera, a Democrat, told New York Health Commissioner Howard Zucker during a legislative hearing on nursing homes earlier this month. “It seems, sir, that in this case you are choosing to define it differently so that you can look better.”

How big a difference could it make? Since May, federal regulators have required nursing homes to submit data on coronavirus deaths each week, whether or not residents died in the facility or at a hospital. Because the requirement came after the height of New York’s outbreak, the available data is relatively small. According to the federal data, roughly a fifth of the state’s homes reported resident deaths from early June to mid July — a tally of 323 dead, 65 percent higher than the state’s count of 195 during that time period.

[End]

Make no mistake about it: Cuomo’s policy decisions led directly to the deaths of thousands of elderly New Yorkers since March. And he knew that would be the result when the made the choices. He is very likely the single most prolific mass murderer in American history.

Given the corrupt news media’s massive campaign to cover for the Governor in hopes he might replace Biden at the party’s convention next week, it is frankly stunning that the AP would run this actual piece of real journalism now. It could only happen if the AP editors got a signal from the DNC that the Cuomo boomlet is over.

For the Democrats, it now appears that it will be Biden or bust in 2020. You should bet on bust.

 

Meanwhile, in Portland, Oregon… – More fun and games last night as the communist Democrat-sponsored rioters expanded their stage of operations again, this time to include the city’s North Police Precinct Building in its attacks:

And the revolving door of communist Portland-style “justice” continues to send the arrested rioters right back onto the streets to riot some more:

And so it goes. It’s becoming repetitive, but it must be said again: This rioting will continue to become increasingly violent and keep spreading throughout the city until someone outside of the communist Democrat Party – which sponsors and pays for the riots – steps in to stop them.

That is all.
