  • Should President Trump ditch Twitter and signup to Parler?

    OK This really crosses the line ... Twitter are now directly censoring Trump's tweets! Do you think he should give up on Twitter and signup to an alternative like Parler(.com)? Many banned/shunned conservatives are on that site and it's a very similar platform to Twitter. If Trump left Twitter and signed up to Parler(.com) he would take many of his 80 MILLION followers with him! It could be HUGE... Discuss!

    ... And I bet Dem Governor Walz will make sure to contract trace all of them; you just watch! Dems even want to trace these criminals, right, much less track them, right? /sarcasm. Dems and the MSM throw a fit anytime there is a peaceful protest and are sure to complain if someone isn't wearing a mask and if they aren't standing 6 ft. apart. If you don't follow those rules, you might get thrown in jail as they've made lots of room letting the real criminals out. We truly are living in Clown World.

    The Washington Times reported: Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, who is in the running to be presumed Democratic presidential nominee Joseph R. Biden’s running mate, found herself under fire Thursday for not prosecuting years ago a Minneapolis police officer who this week was videotaped kneeling on the neck of an African-American suspect who died in custody… …During the eight years she was a Minnesota prosecutor, prior to winning her Senate seat, Ms. Klobuchar passed on opportunities to prosecute Mr. Chauvin and several other officers accused of dubious conduct, according to reports in The Guardian newspaper and left-wing outlets such as The...

    At least 30 arrested at NYC protest over death of George Floyd Crowds created havoc in Union Square Thursday during a protest against the police-involved death of George Floyd. Clashes with cops led to at least 30 arrests in the latest national demonstration sparked after Floyd, who was black, died in police custody on Monday. Widely circulated cellphone video showed Floyd, a 46-year-old father, crying out, “I can’t breathe” as a white cop knelt on his neck for several minutes. Dozens of demonstrators — many in protective face masks but otherwise flouting social-distancing rules — marched around the park and...

    Twitter has abandoned it’s original explanation for labeling the President’s tweet. Yet it’s not removing the label. Instead, @jack claims the tweet could be read as making a different point that should be labeled for a different reason. What a mess. jack @jack - 21h Per our Civic Integrity policy (https://help.twitter.com/en/rules-and-policies/election-integrity-policy), the tweets yesterday may mislead people into thinking they don’t need to register to get a ballot (only registered voters receive ballots). We’re updating the link on @realDonaldTrump’s tweet to make this more clear.

    GOP senator and Obama administration Defense secretary, says he's voting for Democrat Joe Biden over Republican Donald Trump in November. Hagel said during an interview with AL-Monitor's On the Middle East podcast that his choice is based on the belief that America continues to lose sight of its mission in Iraq and perhaps the entire Middle East. "We can't afford to just abandon Iraq," Hagel told show host Andrew Parasiliti. "I don't think our continued role should be to fight ISIS," on an indefinite basis. "If Iraq is a sovereign nation and wants to continue to exist, they’re the ones...

    Check out this clown in Minneapolis with the black umbrealla.  Clearly he is going around trying to stir things up. What is the purpose of the black umbrella?  He is covered from head to toe to hide his tracks.  This reminds me of the umbrealla guy at the JFK assaintaion. Could this be a Deep State operative trying to stir up race war before 2020 election?  Maybe the umbrealla tells others he is protected from above? Check out the first video, and then scroll down to Misty Graves.  Go to the 13 minute and 31 seconds.  You see the same guy breaking all windows...

    The already delayed run of The Boston Marathon will not happen this year over coronavirus concerns, Mayor Martin Walsh and Boston Athletic Association officials said on Thursday. The marathon, a huge and important annual event, had been postponed until Sept. 14 from its normal April run in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Walsh said officials have decided that running it in September “is just not feasible” to be done in a safe way.

    At no point did the pilots say they had a problem with their landing gear or any other type of emergency, according to the radio calls. A deadly plane crash in Pakistan is prompting questions about how the crew could touch down without landing gear when their sophisticated jetliner was bristling with equipment to prevent pilots from doing just that "It is unbelievable to me that an airline crew on a jet like an Airbus, with all the warning systems, would attempt to land the plane without the gear extended," said John Cox, an aviation safety consultant who formerly flew...

    The coronavirus outbreak is wreaking havoc on America’s elections, as evidenced by the fight this month over Wisconsin’s primary. One proposed solution is moving everyone to voting by mail, but President Trump isn’t a fan. “A lot of people cheat with mail-in voting,” he said last week. He’s got a point. I’ve done it myself. In 2011, when I was living in Palm Beach County, Florida, I decided to test the system, and so I asked for three voter registration applications. I filled them out, listing three different names — two that I pulled out of my head Rebecca Bugle...

    Wichita, Kansas – Reports to one Kansas county’s hotline and web form for reporting “violations” of Democrat Gov. Laura Kelly’s COVID-19 stay at home orders reveal several startling lessons about human nature and the priorities of those most likely to tattle. What soon became known as the “snitch line” was operated by Sedgwick County, Kansas, from late March through May 1, 2020. A listing of the 1,582 complaints made to the county was obtained by Operation Rescue. It showed complaints made from March 26 through April 27, 2020. It also revealed what people wanted shut down most. Among those complained...

    The TRUE STORY of Norma McCorvey AKA Jane Roe: Pro-Choice Poster Child to Pro-Life Christian DEDICATED TO MISS NORMA MCCORVEY This video chronicles the inspiring life story and transformation of the woman most widely known as "JANE ROE" of the infamous 1973 #RoeVWade Supreme Court case, which essentially legalized abortion-on-demand in the United States. See how she went from being the poster child for the Pro-choice movement to one of the leading voices in the Pro-Life movement to overturn that same SCOTUS decision. Also watch how she went from hating Bible-thumping Christians to ultimately becoming one herself. Thanks to the...
