Aw, Cookie. Here you go again. Wake up, bro. While Floyd's killing was wasteful, senseless, and sad, you need to wake up and smell the coffee as to who is behind these rioting teams who always remain on standby to inflict the most pain possible on the Republic. Also wake up to the fact that the msm and the left is using this rioting as another way to damage Trump. But, it won't work. Hate never works.

Just did a quick survey of my entire family; not a one of them gives a rats ass about Tim Q. Cook or anyone at Apple. Their skin should be painful and uncomfortable. I hope they are quaking in their mansions and in their Teslas.

I am so sick of being told to think about skin color. George Floyd’s death is a tragedy but there are a zillion tragedies every single day! I feel badly for all of them. I hope we learn to make things better from every tragedy! There are racists. There are also child abusers, murderers, unwanted children, untreated mentally ill people, untreated drug addicts, on and on. And they ALL matter!

Now that the Democratic ticket has been set and the (virtual) convention is about to launch, it's a good time to evaluate how tilted The Washington Post "Fact Checker" is when it comes to not just Trump and Biden, but to all Republicans and all Democrats.To get a sense of the overall tone, I counted up how many "Pinocchios" were awarded to politicians of both parties. Granted, the Post often spares its marionettes when a politician tries to apologize for his mistakes. But they often throw the maximum "Four Pinocchios" at the president.

More and more Americans in denial are being forced to face the reality that their country is on verge of being lost, with the barbarians not only inside the gates, but driving policy for the rest of us. When Democrat mayor after mayor bends to the demands of Black Lives Matter (BLM) to defund their police in the aftermath of violent protests, property destruction, and looting, locals freak out knowing that bad actors will be emboldened and violence will escalate. BLM doesn’t even try to hide that its leaders are Marxists and that it has effectively become a paramilitary wing of the Democrat Party. BLM has received millions

New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy, a Democrat, announced on CNN Friday morning that his state is moving to universal mail-in voting for the upcoming November election. President Trump and Attorney General William Barr say automatically mailing all registered voters ballots is a recipe for error and outright fraud. Asked how he will prevent fraud in November, Murphy said, "You never can say you bat one thousand, but I'm pretty sure that we have a higher probability of being hit by lightning than we do uncovering voter fraud."

Prominent Democratic donor George Soros called President Donald Trump “dangerous” and asserted that Trump would do “anything to stay in power,” in a wide-ranging interview Tuesday with Italian newspaper La Repubblica. The 90-year-old Hungarian-American and billionaire philanthropist told La Repubblica that Trump is a “confidence trickster” who unexpectedly won the 2016 U.S. election and was inadvertently working to “undermine democracy from within,” per a translation of the interview on George Soros’ website. (Tweet) Soros added that Trump was a mere “transitory phenomenon” suggesting that his ascension to power was an anomalous four-year period in U.S. history

It is no secret but public knowledge that Kamala Harris slept her way up into California political life by being a very public escort and mattress for California Democrat Kingmaker Willie Brown. Willie Brown is 30 years older than Harris and was very married at the time. It was public. It was an embarrassment. With Joe Biden’s photo metaphorically the definition of the 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, voters will decide in November whether they want Harris to be their president some time in the next four years. Of almost equally significant concern is what Harris represents to hard-working women across the country who devote years to their careers

President Trump continues to be his own worst enemy: On Thursday, he stooped to calling presumptive vice-presidential nominee Kamala Harris a “mad woman.” That doesn’t promote his agenda. It doesn’t help him with women. It doesn’t shore up his image as worthy of the nation’s highest office. It’s just, as Trump would say, mean and nasty. Sure, Harris isn’t the first target of Trump’s ad hominem attacks or over-the-top language. But making everything personal is unbecoming. It turns off voters who like his policies but dislike his rhetoric.

In a pair of tweets, Graham, a frequent defender of Trump, said he disagreed with Harris on “plenty of issues,” calling her “one of the most liberal members of the U.S. Senate.” But he said there should be no debate over her citizenship status.

The lawyer, Kevin Clinesmith, 38, who was assigned to the Russia investigation, plans to admit that he altered an email from the C.I.A. that investigators relied on to seek renewed court permission in 2017 for a secret wiretap on the former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, who had at times provided information to the spy agency. Mr. Clinesmith’s lawyers said he made a mistake while trying to clarify facts for a colleague,
