    “Governor Pritzker you gave an order and this is my act of civil disobedience,” Chris Ninotta, owner of Omni Strength said... The windows of the Omni Strength gym in Moline are covered with painted messages, like “Working out is essential” and “We are open for business”. “I did the Zoom classes for a while.

I'm a single father and that's where my loyalty lies and there's no man or government...

    With some states claiming testing is short supply, and hospitals attributing COVID-19 deaths through different methodologies, many analysts are looking to the blunter measure of total deaths. We compared total death from all states for the entire months of March & April (May data is still incomplete). By comparing total death for March & April of this year with those from the same period in past years, a rough measure of the pandemic’s impact emerges. The data from this analysis support the idea that Red states (Conservative ideology) are faring better than Blue states (Liberal ideology). COVID-19 numbers are not...

    It is not just fireworks, but Christmas lights and a host of other things we can do better here than they do over there. That said, with a proud history of observing July 4th by way of booms, bangs, and bright lights celebrating independence from King George, I am hesitant to make use of products sold by Communist China this year. Why was I not in years past? Black Cat. M-80. Silver Salute. Lady Fingers. Zebra. Dixie Boy. Here is the thing: We should develop a fireworks industry that puts Communist China to shame. Not that our military does not...

    New York state in Mid-April decided to add “presumed” COVID-19 cases to its death toll, which put the state’s total at around 10,000 victims. < Another 3,700 new deaths were added to the revised death count, according to a report from The New York Times. But New York was not alone. Michigan also announced in April that they were adding another 65 “presumed” cases to their total coronavirus tally. In late April the Wolf administration in Pennsylvania was caught adding up to 269 fake deaths to the state totals on Tuesday. Unfortunately for the Democrat governor he got caught. This...

    Early Tuesday morning, President Trump continued to signal that it is his intention to re-open the U.S. economy and get Americans back to work sooner rather than later. Repeating yesterday’s theme that the government can’t afford to implement a draconian “cure” that is worse than the China Virus, the President issued the following tweet: Donald J. Trump ✔ @realDonaldTrump Our people want to return to work. They will practice Social Distancing and all else, and Seniors will be watched over protectively & lovingly. We can do two things together. THE CURE CANNOT BE WORSE (by far) THAN THE PROBLEM! Congress...

    ICE agents arrested two illegal aliens in a courthouse in Northern California, defying a state law that says they needed a warrant from a judge to do so. ICE flouted a new state law that requires the warrant before arresting an illegal on courthouse grounds. After the predictable outcry from courthouse officials and others, ICE calmly gave their rationale. Los Angeles Times: ICE said in a statement that California’s law doesn’t supersede federal law and “will not govern the conduct of federal officers acting pursuant to duly enacted laws passed by Congress that provide the authority to make administrative arrests...

    Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham said Sunday that he and other Republicans will begin calling witnesses within weeks for hearings related to Hunter Biden’s work in Ukraine, as well as the FBI’s surveillance of former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. . . . Graham said he also wants to hear from Kerry’s stepson, Christopher Heinz, who was a business partner of Hunter Biden. State Department emails show that Heinz contacted officials at Foggy Bottom on May 13, 2014 to raise red flags about Hunter Biden’s relationship with Burisma, which has been investigated for corruption.

    Pam Bondi took to the Senate Floor on Monday afternoon in the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump. Former Florida Attorney General Bondi exposed the corrupt and nefarious actions by Joe Biden, Hunter Biden and the Burisma scandal. Pam Bondi opened her testimony by mentioning the Democrats mentioned Burisma and Hunter Biden 400 times during their opening arguments last week. THIS WAS BRUTAL! And it was the FIRST TIME most of these Senators had heard about this corruption. This was an amazing opening argument! The liberal media was hoping to hide this from the American people! video
