    No big deal to give in to their demands to remove statues of Confederate soldiers and rename some army bases, right? But you do realize that this has very little to do with the Confederacy, or with black lives, or even with racism or equality, justice, etc? This is 100% about radical Marxists trying to take over our country--by force if we don't surrender to their demands, ie, they will burn it all down. Black Lives Matter? Yes, they certainly do, but the leaders and moneymen of these Marxist movements aren't even black. And it's not about black lives. The...

    In addition to filming humorous videos, comedian, Carlos “HaHa” Davis has a regular weekly segment he calls “I Love You” where he delivers a random act of kindness to someone that appears to need some help. In his October 21 segment, Davis chose to help out a woman who he saw was paying for her gas with pennies. When he offered her money to help, he realized that his act of kindness was worth so much more than the money he gave her … because she was grieving the recent loss of her husband.

    Does anyone in SoCal know of any active Conservative groups in the area? I don't want to believe that California is such a lost cause that no one out here will get active in the community and spread the gospel of personal liberty and self-determination.

    This is an absolutely hilarious video of two women in a convenience store who refuse to open the register for a robber. The women then leave the store and lock the door from the outside. The now-trapped crook realizes he is trapped and goes nuts trying to break out. The security bars on the windows foil him and finally the police come and nab him. All the while he is moaning that “I’m going to jail.”

    Susan Anderson remembers feeling some labor pain, but she couldn’t have imagined how surprisingly fast her daughter was born. She and her husband made the short trip from their Coral Springs home to a birthing center. She was footsteps from the center’s front door Thursday, but didn’t make it: She gave birth to her second daughter right there in the parking lot. Her baby girl, Julia Anderson, was born healthily — now with a very interesting story to tell when she gets older. “My first daughter was a normal length, I would say, about two hours of pushing. I thought...

    The Seattle City Council won’t fulfill Mayor Jenny Durkan’s request to investigate and potentially expel Councilmember Kshama Sawant for alleged bad behavior, Council President M. Lorena González said Wednesday. González said she wants the council to concentrate on other work. On Tuesday, Durkan released a letter to González asking the council to investigate Sawant for taking part in a Black Lives Matter protest march to Durkan’s home and for several other actions, such as opening City Hall to protesters on the evening of June 9. The mayor accused Sawant “and her followers” of displaying “reckless disregard of the safety of...

    GREEN COVE SPRINGS, Fla. (AP) — A Florida sheriff says he will deputize every gun owner in his county to put down any violent protests his deputies can’t handle alone. Clay County Sheriff Darryl Daniels gave no indication in a three-minute video released Wednesday that any demonstrations are planned in his suburban Jacksonville county. Daniels also said he would protect any peaceful protests, but added that if anyone starts “tearing up Clay County, that is not going to be acceptable.”

    The chief executives of four of the most powerful tech companies in the world — Apple, Facebook, Google and Amazon — have agreed to appear in late July before a congressional committee as part of an investigation focused on antitrust. Representative David Cicilline, a Democrat from Rhode Island who has become one of the biggest critics of Big Tech’s enormous power, told me on Wednesday that Jeff Bezos of Amazon, Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook, Sundar Pichai of Google and Tim Cook of Apple will testify in what could be an all-day event.Mr. Cicilline said that the yearlong congressional investigation has...

    I’ve been sick the last couple of weeks, and have had energy for the absolutely necessary – and the nice distractions! I thought I’d share with you some of the things that have distracted me from my personal issues, and from the larger issues that most of us are facing. I guess it isn’t a surprise that I’ve been drawn, for distraction, to people and places who aren’t really dealing with all the cr*p that many of us are. One of the websites I’ve greatly enjoyed has been ‘Whippoorwill Holler’, offered by Mr. and Mrs. Brown in Northeast Arkansas. Lately,...

    A new order signed Wednesday by state Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine makes masks mandatory in Pennsylvania even when you’re outside in a public place. Gov. Tom Wolf said the mandate expands an order signed in April that requires the wearing of masks in businesses. The new order is effective immediately, Wolf said. Masks must be worn whenever anyone leaves home, according to the order, signed under Levine’s authority under the Disease Prevention and Control Act. “This mask-wearing order is essential to stopping the recent increase in covid-19 cases we have seen in Pennsylvania,” Wolf said.

    Despite what the God-hating, America-hating leftist professors and communist agitators say, it's settled science. It's also natural law and it's God's law. You can masquerade as one or the other but you cannot physically change from one to the other. It's delusional to think or teach otherwise, and preposterous for government to make law stating otherwise.
