According to the most recent data released on Wednesday, visits to those places are currently only down one percent in Mississippi and Oklahoma.The data compares to a baseline level, which is based off average visits from a five week period in January and February before

I don't see how they can get into malls and restaurants with all the piles of bodies around.

Oklahoma was on it's way back to normal around week 3 of quarantine. Now traffic is normal and most stores are open and although I see masks, they are not mandated and I'm seeing fewer and fewer.

Here in Middle Georgia, almost everything is back to normal, some places have sit down dining available, and the movie theaters are opening this weekend. Life goes on here!

The places liberals hate the most are doing well. Meanwhile, blue states are still locked down, and one is in flames due to urban riots.

Friends in their lovely ARK rural county in the Ozarks have been back to normal pretty much since May 5th. No meatpacking places, illegal or foreign workers in the populations, and less than 15 cases of virus.

According to “cell phone data compiled by Google”? That’s disturbing.

I've been a bit disappointed at the emptiness in most of the restaurants that I have eaten in lately here. And NO fast food outlets have opened their dining rooms, the worthless cowards.

One might think that MSNBC might give Rev. Al Sharpton the day off when the hot topic is protesters burning down buildings. In 1995, Sharpton's protest against the "white interloper" who ran Freddy's Fashion Mart in Harlem led to a fire where seven people died of smoke inhalation (and the arsonist shot himself). Discussing the rioting in Minneapolis on today's Morning Joe, Al Sharpton began by telling protesters that the goal of a fair criminal justice system wouldn't be achieved by "appearing" to be criminal themselves. He warned that people would "exploit" that. A clearly upset Sharpton then said: "As I walked around Minneapolis yesterday . . .

President Donald Trump is right that social media companies have been targeting conservatives. Twitter, in particular, has been engaging in a relentless attack on the American political process by censoring conservatives.Now that has escalated to fact-checking the president nearly five months from a presidential election. The Media Research Center released a report in 2018, which found that Twitter led in censoring the right. That hasn’t changed. Project Veritas caught Twitter with hidden camera interviews admitting the process of shadow banning — which means content is hidden from users without the poster ever knowing it.

Communist China poses a greater threat to America and our interests abroad than any other nation in the world.If it wasn’t clear prior to the spread of the Chinese coronavirus, resulting largely from the Chinese Communist Party’s Chernobyl-like response, the subsequent threats should crystallize this point. It has acted malevolently toward the U.S., our European and Anglosphere allies, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and India, and across the South China Sea.Countering the CCP is essential to preserving American life, limb, and liberty.

Most polls show that former vice president Joe Biden is leading President Trump in the 2020 election. Americans should be careful about whom they are voting for. Meghan McCain, Mark Cuban, and Clint Eastwood are just a few who are seriously thinking of not voting for President Trump. Why? Because they are putting personality over policy.Many do not like President Trump's brash behavior and combative ways with the press and Democrats. They see former V.P. Biden currently hiding in his basement and appearing to Americans as a hologram figure with an even-keeled nature. Americans should think long and hard and consider the reasons below

We need honest reckoning and reconciliation.” “If you haven’t already joined the work to replace him in November, start now,” she said. Ms. Clinton, who lost to Mr. Trump in the 2016 election, appeared to be alluding to Mr. Trump’s early-morning comments regarding the unrest in the wake of Floyd’s death.

So I asked them to help us engage with the constituents they have. We have 31 mayors off the bat. Many more joined on since then. We’re working in high schools because people who are first-time voters tend to be lifelong voters.

George Floyd's death in police custody is renewing criticism of Sen. Amy Klobuchar's (D-Minn.) prosecutorial record. Before she became a senator and a top contender for former Vice President Joe Biden's vice presidential spot, Klobuchar spent eight years as the Hennepin County attorney, in charge of prosecution for Minneapolis. And while in that position, Klobuchar declined to prosecute multiple police officers cited for excessive force, including the officer who kneeled on Floyd's neck as he protested, The Guardian reports. Ex-Minneapolis police officer Derick Chauvin saw at least 10 conduct complaints during his 19-year tenure before he was fired Tuesday, according

The COVID-19 Death Count?

As the “official” tally of COVID-19 deaths tops 100,000 in the U.S., we keep hearing how that number is likely a low-ball estimate. But there’s far more evidence that the death count has been knowingly exaggerated – possibly by a very wide margin. A recent Seattle Times article pretty much lays out the charade going on. The headline reads: “Washington state’s actual coronavirus death toll may be higher than current tallies, health officials say.” But the story itself leads one to the exact opposite conclusion. Well down in the article, the reporter reveals that: “The rapid onslaught of this coronavirus forced
