A convoy consisting of thousands of bikers headed for a South Dakota rally will not be allowed to cross Cheyenne River Sioux checkpoints on their way to the event, according to a Native American spokesman. The spokesman said Saturday that the band of travelers would be stopped on their way to the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, in the name of preventing coronavirus from spreading any further. The seven tribes that make up the Sioux Nation are now in a fight with federal and state officials, who deemed such checkpoints to be illegal.

Do these Indians realize that these are not a bunch of panty waist lie-beral snowflakes, but a bunch of big strong tough men who don't put up with anyone or anything messing with their rights?!?!? I can't see an illegal roadblock working for more than about .000001 seconds given that fact!!!

Messing with thousands of bikers on their way to a week-long party. It's no wonder these people were soundly defeated and now live on reservations. That is a SPECIAL kind of stupid.

Ordinarily I would side with the Indians. They were herded onto these lands and told they were sovereign Indian territory that they could govern. Problem is, white man is still paying them to be Indians and maintaining the roads, so they aren't sovereign. And this bunch seems too dumb to govern themselves anyway. If they mess with those animals, covid will be the least of their worries.

I grew up in this area. Trust me, there are plenty of ways to get to Sturgis, SD, without going through this particular reservation. The real question is why the obvious tribal power play is getting any media attention. It doesn't matter and doesn't change a thing. Anyone who wants to go to the Sturgis rally will get there.

If the roads are state and Federal public roads, the Indians of any tribe should have no right whatsoever to block anything. Until they actually join the rest of us as a welcome part of the nation, they are acting illegally as far as I am concerned. When they start losing revenue at all their casinos from this behavior, they might start rethinking their positions about this.

Whose the first to ride up and open fire if necessary to clear the way to a motorcycle bacchanalia? Anyone? Those rough, tough bikers are mostly middle aged insurance salesmen and dentists looking to scare old ladies and impress friends and family by looking the part and acting a bit bawdy. I would expect the state or Feds to keep the major roads open to travelers. Big $$$ talks.

Does the Sioux Nation rely on federal or state subsidies? Silly people! Perhaps they should have planned to have the bikers help them. How many bikers would have volunteered to help build homes, schools? Use their engineering/electrical/HVAC skill sets? Develop friendly relationships? Etc? Would the bikers have bought items that the various Indian tribes make? ( (ie jewelry, home decor) It looks like the Indians have shot themselves in the foot.

The Iraq war veteran charged with skimming $350,000 in donations for the US-Mexico border wall blew the cash on his “lavish lifestyle,” including a boat, jewelry and cosmetic surgery, prosecutors said Thursday. Purple Heart recipient Brian Kolfage is accused of pocketing $20,000 a month — and a $100,000 up-front payment — from the viral GoFundMe fundraiser “We Build the Wall,” which launched in 2018 and raised $25 million. Federal prosecutors in Manhattan said Kolfage, 38, also spent the ill-gotten gains on a luxury SUV, golf cart, personal tax payments and credit card debt.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus has played a make-believe Vice President on TV. She begins our night by sharing small talk with Andrew Yang, the recently failed Democrat presidential candidate. Their repartee falls flat. Clunk. Julia tries to be funny. She mocks the pronunciation of Mike Pence’s name, with the implication that conservatives will reject Kamala Harris because her first name is not a classic White Anglo-Saxon Protestant name. But it simply does not resonate. We have elected for President someone with the name “Barack.” Someone with the name “Hussein.” Even someone with the name “Obama.” Twice. So, no, it is not about an exotic name.

He did it. Joe Biden got through the biggest speech of his life cleanly and coherently Thursday night, without stumbling or mumbling or getting that far-away dazed look in his eyes. That sounds like an incredibly low bar because it is, but it reflects the honest and serious debate about Biden’s fitness. His age, 77, past health problems and the obvious signs that his faculties have been diminished raised the unprecedented possibility that he would not be able to carry out one of the routine performances of a major party nominee — give an acceptance speech. Coming into his party’s virtual coronation, the test was not whether

The Democrats’ convention is painful to watch — a display of nonstop demagoguery about “saving the planet” from pols who can’t even save America’s cities. Pundits purr that the Democrats offer a “return to normalcy.” But almost everything about their agenda is abnormal — from leaving America’s border open to defunding the police to imposing transgenderism on America’s youth. The Democrats take no interest in the basic requirements of running a country and instead tout what ruins one.

The timing could not have been more inconvenient for Democrats. The day before they eulogized the Black Lives Matter movement and elevated it to the centerpiece of their national convention, a white man was dragged out of his pickup truck by BLM protesters, kicked in the head and beaten almost to death. Even more inconvenient was the fact that the victim, laborer Adam Haner, had been trying to stop these “mostly peaceful” social-justice warriors from attacking a transgender woman at the time.

Kamala Harris does not want to be the president of the United States. She wants to be the queen of the post-constitutional remnants of what used to be the United States. On first reading, this might seem like a hysterical and overblown claim, but it’s actually quite easy to support. All one has to do is read the description of the president’s duties in Article II of the Constitution and compare it with anything and everything Harris has ever said she would do if she found herself occupying the post; the two simply do not match up. In fact, judging by her own words and deeds,

Instead, Obama viciously attacked Trump and did a constitutional rewrite that allowed him to cast Trump as a constitutional threat. From the start, Obama was up to his old tricks.
