Three Democratic members of the Staunton, Virginia, city council were ousted by Republicans on Tuesday despite receiving more votes than they did four years ago. Republican candidates Mark Robertson, Amy Darby, and Steve Claffey all joined incumbent Andrea Oakes in a four-seat GOP sweep, WHSV reported. The three incoming council members replaced Democratic incumbents Erik Curren, Ophie Kier, and James Harrington all almost doubled their vote totals from 2016, yet still lost. Local outlet Augusta Free Press reporter Chris Graham called the results “stunning almost beyond words.”

But, of course, you won't hear a word about this in the MSM. However, you know if the opposite happened in any Podunk town anywhere, it would be front-page news on the NY Time-water and Washington Post. -- "proving the coming blue wave in November"!!!

Let's hope that this is a trend. I think a LOT of Dem governors have MASSIVELY overplayed their Totalitarian cards. Seems like a lot of otherwise laid back, disconnected, tuned out folks are no longer so laid back, not so disconnected, and not so tuned out.....and they are P*SSED OFF about their businesses being ruined and their lives disrupted by totalitarian thugs with a "D" after there names.

There were a lot of Americans in Virginia who failed to realize the importance of voting. The last go around, they sat at home and the politicians, bureaucrats, and liberal special interest groups overwhelmed the state and elected a radical bunch of democrats. Abortion? Far beyond that. The democrat governor thinks it is OK to decide on a death penalty for a newborn. Gun rights--not in Virginia. Virginia citizens are WOKE. And in November, they will commit to showing up to vote.

Then there are the two special elections for House seats, one in CA (Garcia) and Sean Duffy's seat in WI, (Tom TIffany). Both Repubs defeated leftish females. By media omitting these important stories (and how well we are acquainted with their hypocrisy) they work to suppress the enthusiasm of R voters (or others considering changing their affiliations), and encourage the Left and their tactics.

It just occurred to me that this may be in the providence of God. Sometime God puts us into uncomfortable situations in order to teach us His will or allow us to experience something that will equip us to make better decisions in the future. This crisis my be the thing that we have experienced in order to wake us up from the danger that is about to deny us the freedoms we have takes for granted. People are certainly aware now that freedom must be defended. I pray this is the case and that the massive outpouring of voters in November will allow us to reclaim the rights we may have taken for granted. The results of these elections give me hope. We have said that the sleeping giant has been awakened before, but this time, he has bypassed the snooze button, hit the off button and is fully awake.

Let us both hope and pray that this is an augury of things to come in November. The pandemic has revealed the dims for who they really are--people who want to control others and bend them to their will, regardless of the resulting good or evil. Let us hope and pray for a republican landslide, a landslide that protects us for a generation or more and instructs the dims that we are having nothing of their socialism, their identity politics and their hatred of our nation. Let's get that Trump Train rolling and unleash the power of the American people, hungry for freedom and liberty. Oh, and one more thing . . . some serious indictments would be in order for those who are guilty of subversion, conspiracy and treason.

One remembers when Dems overplayed their hand with Obammbicare which devestated the Dem party at all levels except the then Pres, VP, Speaker of the House and safe quota seats. Thousands of Dems lost their seats after Obambicare. Could Impeachment and Gestapo lockdowns and economic devastation by Dems lead to the second wave of Dem defeat?

Sadly, the "Old Dominion" state got hijacked by liberals once those people realized they could relax in spacious houses in beautiful areas but still work in the hell hole of Washington, D.C. by car/train commuting. Beautiful Virginia, the "Mother of Presidents" state, 250 years ago was once the leader in rebellion against tyrants. Remember it was home to the likes of George Washington, Patrick Henry, Tom Jefferson, Jimmy Madison & James Monroe, et. al. Let us hope this voter outcome is a wake-up call to others and spreads like a healthy virus.

Another little hint in a chain of them that suggest the American People's mood is not supportive of dems. The Left can rig the polls to make it look like gropey Joe has a lead but not all the smaller news that leaks out that shows the dems are sinking fast. You have to wonder if they will realize it/keep lying or if we will go into November with them predicting a clear Biden win and then Trump winning in a landslide. What will they say then? A little Shock and Awe would be healthy for the media but it probably won't do any good.

#16, it cuts both ways. Savvy people who get their news from diverse sources-- and from each other-- will know these things. On the other hand, the fact that the MSM doesn't report such things may lull the Lefties into complacency. After all, it's an established fact that GOP voters are much more likely to vote when it's raining than Dems.

Up by plus ten or more, #11, according to Juanita Williams, who also claims: 1. a vast majority of the American people don’t want lockdowns to end too soon. 2. Trump is losing his base because they are not happy with his handling of the virus. It’s stunning to watch this guy cherry-pick polls to suit his ideology and then try and pass them off as a true measure of the American political mood.

In a 4-3 decision, the Wisconsin Supreme Court on Wednesday struck down the state's stay at home order, handing a defeat to Democratic Gov. Tony Evers in his administration's response to the COVID-19 pandemic. With the governor's stay-at-home order suspended, Gov. Tony Evers and legislative Republicans will need to work quickly to come up with a replacement plan, otherwise it may be up to individual counties to implement a patchwork of their own COVID-19 regulations. In its order, the Supreme Court said Evers' stay at home order is "invalid, and therefore, unenforceable," so businesses and restaurants presumably may open immediately.

Nevada’s governor has signed an emergency order barring the use of anti-malaria drugs for someone who has the coronavirus. Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak’s order Tuesday restricting chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine comes after President Donald Trump touted the medication as a treatment for the virus. (snip) Sisolak said in a statement that there’s no consensus among experts or Nevada doctors that the drugs can treat people with COVID-19.

The Des Moines Register, CNN and Selzer & Co. have made the decision to not release the final installment of the CNN/Des Moines Register/Mediacom poll as planned this evening. Nothing is more important to the Register and its polling partners than the integrity of the Iowa Poll. Today, a respondent raised an issue with the way the survey was administered, which could have compromised the results of the poll. It appears a candidate’s name was omitted in at least one interview in which the respondent was asked to name their preferred candidate. While this appears to be isolated to one surveyor, we cannot confirm that with certainty.

Minneapolis City Council members are expected to hold an emergency meeting Friday to vote on some of the first changes to the city’s police department following the death of George Floyd, with some of the council’s members vowing to “dismantle” the police department, according to the Star Tribune. The council is working with the state’s Department of Human Rights on a stipulated restraining order that would require some immediate changes to the police department. The order would also set up a timeline for an investigation into whether the police department participated in racial discrimination over the last 10 years.

Mr. President, you’ve taken step one: Declaring Antifa a domestic terrorist organization. That was a brilliant move. Now it’s time for step number two: Cut the head off the snake. We’ve got to move to aggressively cut off the funding of domestic terrorism. Those who provide funding are terrorists themselves. Who is providing the funding? There are many suspects. Suspect number one is globalist billionaire George Soros and his Open Society Foundation. It starts there. Is Soros guilty? That’s way above my pay grade. That’s why we need a global investigation.
