Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)
If this doesn’t make you sick, I don’t know what will. – A video made public yesterday shows four Minneapolis police killing a man on the street in broad daylight. Literally killing him. Watch:

Despite the man’s repeated pleas that he can’t breathe, this policeman leaned with his knee on his neck until he died. In broad daylight, while a crowd of pedestrians watched and shouted, so these officers had to know they were being caught on video. Yet, the officer leaned on the man until he died while his three fellow officers stood around like slugs and watched.
Maybe the guy resisted arrest; maybe he even got violent with the cops – we don’t know all the facts around the incident yet. But they don’t matter. This man was handcuffed, on the ground, pleading that he can’t breathe, and the police killed him.
His alleged crime? Forging a check. That’s right – the cops were called out to the scene to investigate a complaint of forging. This man is dead because he might have forged a check.
If the victim were white or Hispanic or Asian, you wouldn’t hear much more about this killing. Because he is black and our media establishment is utterly corrupt and thrives on fomenting racial strife in our country, this story will dominate the news for weeks as the Democrats attempt to blame this killing on President Trump.
The act by these bad cops is indefensible and they all need to be fully prosecuted for it. You can be sure that the coverage of this act by the corrupt news media will be indefensible as well, and there will be no price to be paid for that.
You won’t have to worry about Gretchen Whitmer being Biden’s running mate after this. – Michigan’s aspiring banana republic dictator famously ordered her state’s residents to stay locked down in their homes back in March, advising them not to even drive to their vacation homes in order to avoid spreading the Wuhan Virus. That advice had literally zero science or data to support it, but hey, she was having a great time lording her power over the little people.
That bit of bad advice became problematic for the Generalissimo over the weekend, however, when it was revealed that her very own hubby had driven many miles to their own vacation home, in the process attempting to use his status as Mr. Generalissimo to jump the long line at the boat storage facility to have his boat lowered into the water.
When asked about the incident at her press conference on Tuesday, Herr Gretchen responded that Mr. Generalissimo was just employing a “bad attempt at humor” in attempting to bully the boat facility, and had only traveled to the vacation home to “rake leaves.” No one, not even her own sign language expert, believed her:
Operation ChinExit is well under way. – It is already being overwhelmed by other, more sensationalist news stories, but White House Economic Advisor Lawrence Kudlow made a huge announcement Wednesday during an interview with Stuart Varney on Fox Business.
Kudlow told Varney that the U.S. would join Japan and Australia in subsidizing companies that work to move their supply chains out of China back to the United States:
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused supply chain disruptions and elevated concerns the U.S. has become too reliant on production in Asia, and specifically China, for goods and key technologies.
“We welcome any Americans companies in Hong Kong or China mainland, we will do what we can for full expensing and pay the cost of moving if they return their supply chains and their production to the United States,” chief White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow told FOX Business’ Stuart Varney on Tuesday.
This is a very big deal, so don’t expect to see much about it on CNN or MSNBC.
Dining in in LA County? – It looks like that could suddenly happen as soon as this weekend, as the LA County Board of Supervisors approved a motion yesterday to ask the state to allow it to move to accelerate its glacially-slow reopening. Obviously, LA Democrats got some really bad polling numbers this week, because, as we know, Democrat officials base literally every action they take on polling data, not science or health-related data.
Interestingly, the request from LA County will include the reopening of churches in the area, just 5 days after President Trump warned governors and local officials that he would seek to override their authority if they did not move quickly to reopen religious facilities.
Funny how that works.
That is all.
