In the accompanying photo, Mayor Lightfoot almost looks possessed or haunted. Like she's "Casper the Fascist Ghost" or something.

Civil Wars have started over less than this total and complete attack on our Constitutional rights by another far-left Demon-Rat fascist dictator wanna-be!!!!! One thing African Americans have proven themselves really good at is taking to the streets when they believe they have been attacked. And the black churches are the heart and soul of the black community. I truly hope that they take to the streets for a good cause this time in Chicago!!!!!

Historically speaking, homosexuals have demonstrated an inability to moderate their emotions and are given to extreme overreaction to anything opposing them. Christian churches might as well be satanic cults as far as someone like this mayor thinks. I’m sure what’s driving this heavy-footed police action is her knowing that Christian doctrine condemns sexual perversion.

Sunday, Memorial Day weekend, was a beautiful sunny day. Mary and I left our West Virginia home to make the 40-mile trek to Walmart and Home Depot in Virginia. We drove past a Virginia megachurch which usually has state cops directing traffic for the congregation. The parking lot was empty with a large “closed” sign. Meanwhile, Walmart and Home Depot parking lots were packed. Around 50% of shoppers wore masks. Absurdly, I saw toddlers wearing masks, which were particularly annoying.Professor Dolores J.

Twitter applied a fact check to President Donald Trump on Tuesday because he claimed that voter fraud was more likely under the Democrats’ proposed nationwide vote-by-mail system — something even Democrats once believed.

Case in point: the “very fine people” hoax, claiming Trump praised neo-Nazis who rioted in Charlottesville, Virginia, in August 2017.As Breitbart News has demonstrated extensively, Trump never praised the neo-Nazis, but in fact said they should be “condemned totally”

A recent spate of mostly bad polls for President Trump has driven a narrative that he’s on his way out. Pundits have declared his reelection in “deep trouble,” and they have highlighted polls showing him “hemorrhaging older voters.” Even Republicans in swing states have raised alarms about how vulnerable Trump is to defeat. But in 2020, as the coronavirus pandemic rips through the world, the uncertainty is so great that it’s sillier than ever to read so much into polls this far out from the election. To be clear, we aren’t attempting to ignore the polls that clearly show Trump’s risk of defeat.

One of the nation’s most prestigious national labs has developed a new fuel substitute for the same jet fuel that powers cruise missiles. Los Alamos National Labs has come up with a replacement fuel for JP-10 that uses corn bran and other feedstocks instead of petroleum products. The result is a fuel that can be sourced directly from America’s most plentiful crop, bypassing foreign sources. The Tomahawk missile is one of the most plentiful missiles in the US military arsenal. Developed in the 1970s, Tomahawk was one of the first low-altitude, radar-evading cruise missiles to enter service, and today 145 U.S. Navy warships carry the missile daily

Chicago saw its deadliest Memorial Day weekend in years, even as people hunker down under Illinois's stay-at-home order to stop the spread of the coronavirus. Police said 10 people were shot and killed in the city, the highest total since 2015. At least 42 others were injured in shootings. NBC's local affiliate has a timeline of this weekend's shootings. Twelve people were shot and killed during Memorial Day weekend five years ago. Street pastor Donovan Price said the shootings are a result of some Chicago residents refusing to adapt to the new social distancing and quarantine guidelines.
