  1. Democrats have promised for years that if you elect them into office then none of this will ever happen, yet it continues to happen. Obama did nothing for eight long years, Biden recently told an African-American that if he doesn't vote for him, then he ain't black. At some point those affected will see this for what it is. They are actually rioting against democrats and most don't even know it.
  2. CA mayor on exodus from blue states: 'I can't blame them' A mass exodus of hundreds of thousands of residents in blue states was to be expected because of their extremely high cost of living, Laguna Hills, Calif., Mayor Don Sedgwick said Tuesday. Appearing on "Fox & Friends" with hosts Griff Jenkins and Dean Cain, Sedgwick said that "it's just too darn expensive" to live in densely populated states like California and New York. "And, the Democrat liberal policies have contributed to that," he said. Recent U.S. Census Bureau data shows the South is seeing its biggest surge ever, with over a million residents pouring into states like Texas, Florida and the Carolinas. According to the Association of Realtors, the median price for a home in California is almost $600,000, while Texas stands at just over $200,000. "The excess regulations and taxes have made the same home in California 40 percent more expensive to build here than it does in other states," Sedgwick told the "Friends" hosts. "So, you can't blame people for moving out." Sedgwick said that while he knows the "number one job of the government is to keep us safe," the politicians in Sacramento – the state's capital – believe their number one job is to "stick it to corporations." "But when they stick it to the corporations, they don't realize that they're sticking it to the consumer," he explained. ****************************************************** If you want to live with riots and unemployment, stay in the blue states.
  3. Massive hydroxychloroquine study raising health concerns about the drug under scrutiny from scientists A massive study that raised health concerns over hydroxychloroquine, the anti-malaria drug touted by President Trump as a coronavirus treatment, is coming under scrutiny from scientists who are demanding to see the data behind it. The scientists expressed concerns over a high-profile study from The Lancet, which surveyed 96,000 hospitalized COVID-19 patients across six continents and concluded that the drug was ineffective in fighting the coronavirus and caused serious heart problems and even death for patients who had the disease. An open letter from more than 180 scientists around the world raised concerns over what they said was inconsistent data in the report, noting that the average daily doses of hydroxychloroquine were higher than the those recommended by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). They also pointed out that data the magazine said was from Australian patients did not seem to match data from the Australian government, among other things. Another major concern was that the study's authors did not release their code or data despite signing a pledge to share information on the coronavirus. The report "has led many researchers around the world to scrutinize in detail the publication in question. This scrutiny has raised both methodological and data integrity concerns," the scientists wrote, adding that they were asking the Lancet to make available the peer review process that "led to this manuscript being accepted for publication." The report's research team corrected some of its data Friday but maintained its conclusions had not changed. ************************************************** So a large "study" was faked to arrive at a conclusion that they wanted to achieve regardless of the real data. This sounds familiar.
  4. The big cities being run by democrats are such a wonderful place to live these days, between the virus and riots, life couldn't be more pleasant.
  5. It does matter what political party is in charge, because Democrats have for years claimed this only happens because of Republicans. And here we have a city and state being completely run by Democrats, and they had a cop who killed this African-American like it was a fun thing to do. 18 complaints apparently weren't enough for democrats to flag him as a problem cop. The rioting is happening in Democrat cities right now, showing they are the ones who condone and support this behavior. Biden just told an African-American that if he doesn't vote for him, then he ain't black, showing how the democrats have used them as pawns for political purposes all these years, and not caring if their lives improve at all. Under Trump, they had the lowest unemployment on record..
  6. He assumed that the bridge was not going to be blown so decided to make sure his two guys were killed, and by chance he also took out the dummy that lands on the plunger. They had to explain why that final round was fired so close to them.
  7. SpaceX And NASA Try Once More To Launch Astronauts Elon Musk cannot control the weather. Yet. After storms and a tornado warning upended a launch attempt on Wednesday, the billionaire's commercial spaceflight company, SpaceX, is once again braving Florida's wild weather to launch astronauts into orbit. Such a launch, if successful, would mark the first time NASA has sent astronauts into space from U.S. soil since the end of the shuttle program in 2011. It would also be a first for SpaceX, which has ambitions of someday taking paying customers zooming around the Earth. ************************************************* They are having another attempt today, but the weather is not looking good.
  8. Looting, fires in downtown Portland; police declare riot Chaos reigned in downtown Portland late Friday night into the early morning hours of Saturday as a protest against police violence after a handcuffed black man was killed when a white Minneapolis police officer pressed a knee on his neck descended into a riot. Vandalism, break-ins, looting and fires were witnessed by KOIN 6 News crews into the overnight hours as thousands roamed the streets, either partaking in the riot or watching it unfold around them. Multiple high-end retailers, including storefronts for Apple, Louis Vuitton and Tory Burch, were breached and looted. A Chase Bank branch was broken into and set on fire. At least two protesters were arrested according to Portland police; no other details were immediately released. As a peaceful vigil in North Portland turned into a march through Northeast neighborhoods Friday evening, protesters had been gathered outside of the Multnomah County Justice Center in downtown Portland. After the groups merged sometime around 10:30 p.m., KOIN 6 News crews witnessed protesters smashing the windows of the Justice Center. “Flares and other incendiary devices” were thrown on the first level of the building as Corrections Records staff were still there, according to officials; staffers were able to escape to a secure location inside the building. The flames were put out by the building’s fire sprinkler system; however, extensive damaged remained. ************************************************** All of the riots are happening in Democrat cities, including vandalism, break-ins, looting and fires. So a vote for Biden gets the same outcome.
  9. It's important because Democrats always play the blame game--you can see it in here about Trump on a daily basis. Yet they can't blame this on Trump because we had Obama for 8 years as President, and this occurred in a Democrat state with a Democrat mayor in a Democrat city. The riots are happening and the democrats don't stop them. Now they have burned down the police station. At least they arrested CNN.
  10. There’s going to be a new ‘Fiddler on the Roof’ movie Wonder of wonders: “Fiddler on the Roof” is returning to the big screen. MGM will produce a remake of the iconic 1964 musical about the struggles and joys of Jewish life in the fictional Eastern European shtetl of Anatevka, according to Deadline. The new film will bring some star power from Broadway: Director Thomas Kail served in the same role for “Hamilton” and has collaborated with its creator, Lin-Manuel Miranda (famously a “Fiddler” fan), on other shows. Steven Levenson, who wrote the acclaimed musical “Dear Evan Hansen,” will pen the screenplay. The remake will be carrying on a tradition of more than 50 years. “Fiddler” first had audiences saying “L’chaim” when it opened on Broadway in 1964 starring Zero Mostel as Tevye and winning nine Tonys. It saw many sunrises and sunsets, at one time holding the record for longest-running Broadway musical at nearly 10 years. The movie version came out in 1971 and garnered three Oscars, as well as nominations for best actor for Topol and best picture. Broadway brought back another revival in 2015, and a Yiddish-language “Fiddler” ran off-Broadway until this year. ************************************************************* I hope they don't fiddle on the roof too much when they decide how this goes, I'm thinking they will make this into some PC version.
  11. Sen. Cortez Masto withdraws name from Biden VP consideration Democratic Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto of Nevada said Thursday that she’s not interested in serving as running mate to presumptive presidential nominee Joe Biden. Cortez Masto, who in 2016 became the first Latina elected to the U.S. Senate, said in a statement that she supports the former vice president but does not want to join the Democratic presidential ticket. “I support Joe Biden 100% and will work tirelessly to help get him elected this November. It is an honor to be considered as a potential running mate but I have decided to withdraw my name from consideration," Cortez Masto said in a statement. She noted that Nevada's economy is one of the hardest hit by the coronavirus, with the worst unemployment rate in the nation at 28.2%. She said she will focus on getting Nevada residents back on their feet. Later Thursday, during an online discussion hosted by the Georgetown Institute of Politics and Public Service, Cortez Masto said it was exciting and humbling to have been considered but noted that she was elected to a six-year senatorial term. “My fight is in the Senate, on behalf of the state of Nevada, and that’s my commitment. I can’t walk away from that right now," she said. In a statement released by his campaign Thursday night, Biden said he's admired Cortez Masto as long as he's known her and called her a “leader with integrity.” “Nevadans are fortunate to have her fighting for them in Washington and I look forward to seeing her continue to lead in the Senate,” he said. Cortez Masto is one of more than 10 women whose names have been suggested as possible running mates for Biden, who has committed to picking a woman. **************************************************** Joe Biden is such a weak candidate that another no-name person has dropped out of contention for being VP.

  13. Cuomo granted immunity to nursing home executives, after big-money campaign donation New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who signed legislation granting hospital and nursing home executives immunity from lawsuits related to the novel coronavirus last month, previously received a big-money boost from a powerful health care industry group, according to a new report. An article published on the socialist website Jacobin, and re-published by The Guardian, reports that the New York State Democratic Committee, then backing Cuomo’s primary run in 2018, received more than $1 million from the Greater New York Hospital Association (GNYHA) -- a lobbying group for hospital systems, some of which own nursing homes. The donation made the group one of the state party’s largest contributors in that cycle. Three of the hospital association’s top officials separately gave more than $150,000 to Cuomo’s campaign between 2015 and 2018, the outlet reported. That donation is now drawing scrutiny after Cuomo signed legislation last month that protects executives from lawsuits -- just as he is under continued criticism for his March 25 order (since deleted) requiring nursing homes to take in COVID-19 patients. On May 10, and amid increasing criticism, Cuomo issued a new directive stating that hospitals cannot send patients back to nursing homes in the state unless they tested negative for the virus. The budget provision says that officials “shall have immunity from any liability, civil or criminal, for any harm or damages alleged to have been sustained as a result of an act or omission in the course of arranging for or providing healthcare services” to deal with the outbreak. The article reports that critics are now trying to repeal that provision amid concerns that it removed a deterrent against nursing homes and hospital corporations cutting corners in the treatment of coronavirus patients. But the measures were drafted and aggressively advocated for by the group, the outlet says. ***************************************************** I was wondering why the nursing homes in New York got special treatment, it's amazing what campaign contributions can do.
  14. If this had happened in a Republican state, you would be crowing from every mountaintop in Canada that it's all Trump's fault. Just look at the thread about it in here.
