Not a bad looking governor.

No real content yet, but OK, I didn't really expect any.

Ah, content! SD governor is talking about rioters pulling down statues.

The rioters are indeed trying to discredit America's founding principles of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness and replace them with much darker ones: censorship, blanket accusations of guilt, and division.

Ah, Trump is good. Talking about the evil of Cancel Culture.

A new far left fascism that demands absolute allegiance...


They have determined to tear down every statue and symbol of our national heritage. ... That is why I am deploying federal law enforcement to protect our monuments and prosecute offenders to the fullest extent of the law. I am please to report that yesterday that federal agents arrested the suspected ringleader of the attack on the statue of Andrew Jackson. ...hundreds more have been arrested ...minimum of 10 years in prison. That includes our beautiful Mt Rushmore. Our people have a great memory. They will never forget the destruction of our statues... The violent mayhem we have seen in the streets of our cities that are run by liberal Democrats in every case... Our children are taught in school to hate their own country. ... The radical view of American history is a web of lies. ... Every fact is distorted, every flaw is magnified until ... the record is disfigured beyond recognition. It is openly attacking the memory of every person on Mt. Rushmore.

Just can't type fast enough to keep up.

Invite them in, as long as they are not members of the Chinese Communist Party.

I would be happy the entire population of San Francisco were replaced with people from Hong Kong. It would be a huge improvement.

But they have to be 100% loyal to the US. No dual citizenship.

Yes, it's a great speech. I'll have to get the text.

Ha! He's creating a new national park with statues of American heros. Not sure who they are, but good. More statues to replace those that were torn down, and hopefully these will actually be defended against violent leftists.

Dude, this is fantastic!

Quoting just so more people might see it.

I especially love the point that since the mask can be made out of anything, that proves this is just social engineering.

In particular, the 2nd bullet point. That was written in 2019 at the UN.

The United Nations (including WHO) conducts at least two system-wide training and simulation exercises, including one for covering the deliberate release of a lethal respiratory pathogen.

So... the virus was deliberately released?

A "Dark and Divisive" Speech

Well, of course the media misrepresents everything Trump says, all the time.

I'm very glad I posted the text of his speech here so that everyone can see for themselves that the media is full of shit.

Lol, the speech was auto-translated by some AI thing, and it's not all that well done. But at least people can figure it out.

@jazz_music Did you actually hear his speech, or read a whole transcript of it?

Or do you just take WaPo's word for everything?

@richwicks Is that the EFF certbot?

I'm using letsencrypt-auto. I could run it from a cron job, but for some reason it requires I temporarily stop nginx, I think so that it can take over port 80 for a moment so that Letsencrypt can prove I own the site, or something.

And America will lose.

What is "losing" about staying out of wars and hitting economic records?

To any objective person, Trump has been an excellent president. I can understand that his personality is abrasive, but the hate for him is truly disconnected to actual facts.

This country is so screwed.

Mostly by the media.

Trump is 1000% right to send federal agents to defend our monuments when Democratic mayors and governors have no spine or balls.

The Goering quote is dramatically mis-applied. Comically wrong. Trump is not trying to "bring the people to do his bidding". He is trying to get elected officials to actually enforce existing laws.

I'm done with Iwog's latest troll persona, DILLIGAF.

And I know for a fact it was Iwog again.

Nazism is a good analogy for the "cancel culture" movement.

It really is. Cancel Culture has many similarities with the Nazis:

- absolute intolerance of dissent
- removal of people from their jobs
- censorship of well-known books
- violent attacks
- attempts to force everyone to stop using certain words

Where can I find relatively polite opposition who will come up with facts and debate with at least a little good will?

I appreciate @marcus and @jazz_music really, especially after having to deal with Iwog over and over.
  Patrick   ignore (1)   2020 Jul 4, 11:20am     ↓ dislike (0)   quote   flag      

What would it take to get people to debate each other with good will?

Is it just not possible, because of embarrassing insecurities which cannot be spoken out loud? Maybe we will just go round in circles forever.

Iwog is the epitome of what I hope to avoid on this site. Even Apo's constant references to Putin and sodomy are less offensive, even if a net loss for the site. I think Apo actually has some good will in him, but not Iwog.

I saw them tonight beating the program into the heads of the followers, and HARD too.

But did you read the speech?

What's the program you object do? Can you quote from the parts of the speech you object to?

I bought and put up a flag.

And I used my chalk to write "I like America" at a sidewalk crossing.

That's quite a radical statement these days.

Groups like Bend the Arc are organizing and funding the Antifa rioters.

Follow the $$$$

Can we trace it back further?

No doubt they are trying to obscure the money.

And who is now donating to Prog Causes openly? McDonalds. Google.

It's increasingly clear Big Corps and China are working with the Far Left.

It is clear that trillions in outsourcing profits are at stake here.

You should be paranoid in proportion to the amount of money involved, and these are intergalactic amounts of money.

The just spent 3 years with a blatant lie in an attempt to remove Trump. They lied to the FISA court, they railroaded several people into jail because they were ASSOCIATED with Trump. Why do you think they will have a fair election?

Of course the left will try once again to cheat and subvert democracy, but they failed at it last time.

That gives me hope.

On the other hand, maybe they weren't trying as hard to cheat in 2016 because they thought that their polls were accurate.

Cower-in-place is the gateway excuse for country-wide vote-by-mail. Vote-by-mail is the easiest way to ramp up the voter fraud.

Of 2,541 patients, with a median total hospitalization time of 6 days (IQR: 4-10 days), median age was 64 years (IQR:53-76 years), 51% male, 56% African American...

Why so many blacks? They certainly seem to get this a lot more than anyone else.

By Left-wing logic, this driver must be a Trump supporter which means Trump advocates hitting protesters with cars. Trump is a closed.

I wish they had waited a day or two before releasing the fact that it was a black guy.


Next day:


As it is, the media is going to bury this as fast as Epstein's murder. Doesn't help the cause you know.

And this from someone who goes by "Truth Matters"?

Reminds me a lot of the black guy shooting the white guy at the Kentucky BLM camp. That sure got buried quickly too.

Damn, I made a boatload on Tesla, got nervous and sold at 1000.

Then it went up another 20% in a couple of days.

I put the crosshairs where I bought.

Oh well, you can't lose by winning. I have standing buy order at 800.
