The Riots Continue …
After three months of rioting, looting, arson, murder etc. in only Democrat-controlled states and cities who refused the aid offered by the president, the Democrats have decided, and are pushing the narrative, that the violence is all Trump’s fault. “They must think you’re stupid,” as Obama once famously said. In the meantime, Portland still burns. The mayor is a complete fool, he also blames Trump for the violence he failed to address in his city, agreeing with the rioters early on in the start of the mayhem.
The Formal Surrender of Japan 75th Anniversary
On September 2, 1945 the Japanese signed formal surrender documents aboard the USS Missouri, the 75th anniversary was Tuesday of this week. Will liberals try to erase this history too? Most likely, but what is also likely is that true American Patriots will never for forget this or any history of America.
Ok for her (them), but not for you?
Nancy Pelosi was videoed this week walking into a San Francisco hair salon, sans mask. The salon has been closed since the shutdown in March due to government lockdown mandates. This shows us a couple of things:
1) The lockdowns have been useless and yet have destroyed hundreds, if not thousands, of small independent businesses.
2) The elite Democrats like to make rules to control you and I but choose to not apply these mandates to themselves. That is not justice is it?
Lori Lightfoot, mayor Chicago, Chris Cuomo, son of Mario the pious, and Nancy Pelosi to name a few, are liberals who have all been caught treating themselves like they are better than you and I. horse shit.
After being busted, this woman had the gall to demand an apology from the salon owner for “setting her up.” What unabashed bullshit this is. They have zero reservations about blatant lying to the people of this country.
Meanwhile, in Washington DC, Democrat mayor, Muriel Bowser has formed a committee to re-examine the names of schools, statues and parks in the wake of protests.
The committee says it hunted for historical figures with “key disqualifying histories, including participation in slavery, systemic racism, mistreatment of or actions that suppressed equality for; persons of color, women and LGBTQ communities and violation of the DC Human Right Act.” The bureaucrats worked with uncharacteristic dispatch, taking six weeks to render the judgment of history on 1,330 properties named for people. Among the names under scrutiny by this imbecilic move are Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, Francis Scott Key, Alexander Graham Bell, James Monroe. Additionally, the committee wishes to petition the federal government to “remove, relocate or contextualize the Washington Monument-yes, the monument to the man who won America’s independence.

I will track these campaign promises and will check them off as each is accomplished adding those I have missed as they become apparent. This is quite an agenda and will be difficult to achieve all in one term, but I believe the American people are behind him and know these things need to be done. Now, if he can get our legislators to support him instead of fighting him….

TEDDY ROOSEVELT ON IMMIGRANTS IN AMERICA…1907
In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American and nothing but an American. There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag…We have room for but one language here and that is the English language…and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”
