This year was scary enough. Traditional Halloween activities won't be allowed for residents in Los Angeles County this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, according to local health officials. The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health announced a ban on door-to-door trick-or-treating, carnivals, festivals, live entertainment and haunted houses. "Door to door trick or treating is not allowed because it can be very difficult to maintain proper social distancing on porches and at front doors especially in neighborhoods that are popular with trick or treaters," officials said in a news release detailing guidelines for the annual tradition.

Of course they have. We can't have people enjoying themselves. I have no doubt they will ban Thanksgiving and Christmas too.

I’m ok with banning trick-or-treaters. We suffer the annual invasion of tricked up children of Democrat voters, demanding free candy. It’s not your 50’s Halloween anymore. It’s disgusting to see cars parked bumper-to-bumper on the access roads to our neighborhood whenever this socially acceptable extortionfest comes around.

The left and some pearl clutchers on the right have sucked out any joy that children could possibly have this year. While I am not a huge fan of trick or treating, the kids get a big kick out of it. They love dressing up as their favorite characters and going out and getting candy that will for the most part be thrown away or eaten by parents. This virus has been terribly hard on children. They have had amusement parks closed, fairs canceled, festivals cancelled, pools closed, have been unable to have birthday parties and go to movies. All the fun things have been jerked right out from under them. People making these decisions are just real life grinches. These totalitarians are having a ball but the rest of us have had enough. We now have been taught that we must shut down our lives on the whim of some elected official or power hungry bureaucrat. I am amazed by lengths these power driven nitwits will go to retain control. Our children are suffering from this continued lockdown. School is chaotic, virtual learning is a nightmare for students and teachers, and children need socialization. Please, make it stop!

After President Trump wins re-election we need to nationally or locally enact laws that only allow governors and mayors emergency powers for immediate physical emergencies like fires and floods, all other "emergency measures like a shut down for a virus can only be approved by a board comprised equally of the left and right politicos. This is to prevent governors and mayors from becoming dictators.

But they can still riot, loot, and burn buildings. Just a different form of trick-or-treating. Its the beginning of September and they are talking about the end of October. Next they will close the polling precincts. Election day is only a few days after Halloween. This has nothing to do with CV.

Just Trick or Treat in defiance of the petty dictators. Put a sign in your yard Trick or Treaters welcome and turn on your porch light. Next vote the dictators out of office. Don't vote for incumbents that support Chinese virus lockdowns, masks and school closure. A new politician might not be any better but it will help spread the money around.

When Bill Gates, Dr. Fauci and the rest of the corrupt Dems "War gamed" what would happen in the event of a pandemic, even they couldn't imagine how easy it would be to turn the American people into scared sheeple. The fact that Americans were so ready to give up their freedoms is terrifying. And I'm with #5, what they are doing to the children is criminal! There will be long term damage and repercussions because of this abuse.

Please pardon this second post, but, while I agree with #5 100%, the dims' objective behind taking away all activities and social outreach away from children is to stress the family unit to the point that the voting parents blame Trump for covid on November 3rd and vote dim. Another dim objective is to start conditioning children at an early age to always obey the marxist state.

I'm so glad I live in fly over country. I'm guessing our Dim governor will once again, at the last minute, extend phase #2, because he's drunk with power, but we the people will have the lights on and the candy waiting. It will be the parents choice, and almost everyone is fed up with the mandated BS. Everyone needs to keep repeating the truth, that it's the Dims that are responsible for all this. For Halloween, I might hang my governor in effigy, in the front yard.

Well, because of the fear of the Chicom virus, the Naval Academy banned normal football practice, forced the team to only be able to lift weights, run, but NO plays, NO scrimmages, NO contact, NO blocking, NO tackling (except tackle dummies), and then let them play BYU on Monday, a team that DID have real football practices to get ready for their season. The first time Navy lined up their offense and defense since 2019 was Monday on the game's first play. Then surprise, Navy got beat 55-3. LA can buy all their kids Skittles and tell them they came from the poop of all the government's purple unicorns. That will get our kids ready for what the national leaders will do to them should they too get admitted to Navy. America has become a Monty Python skit on acid, surrendering to a new source of fear of death that doesn't exist.

Well ... seeing it's Los Angeles (originally named "El Pueblo de Nuestra Señora la Reina de los Ángeles"" --- translation = The Town of Our Lady the Queen of the Angels ... how's that for irony?) may I make a suggestion to the mayor? Have all the kids dress up in Halloween costumes anyway and then have them sit out on their front lawns or in a big parking lot. Then have all the parents drive by and throw candy at them. Instead of a drive by shooting, make it a drive by Trick or Treat.

The media is filled with stories about how the Democrats are planning to refuse to accept Donald Trump’s impending victory, with speculation about cheating, lawsuits, and the odd military coup. Leaving aside the bizarre notion that our troops are eager to risk their lives to kill their friends and family for the benefit of the liberal establishment and the military-industrial complex – which the Democrats have suddenly embraced as something awesome – in order to impose that creepy old weirdo from the basement upon America, the challenges are real but they are also overblown.

If the idea of a November spent hunkered down at home with mass protests and violence again roiling the streets sounds appealing, don't worry: The left has a plan for that. A coalition of influential progressive groups—including the SEIU, AFT, Color of Change, Indivisible, MoveOn, and Demos—is organizing, the Daily Beast reports, for "mass public unrest": "Occupy shit, hold space, and shut things down, not just on Election Day but for weeks." Only a fool would think that this "nonviolent civil disobedience" will stay nonviolent after a summer that's seen over 500 riots across the nation.

San Francisco and the Bay Area woke up under prolonged darkness today, in scenes that resemble Martian landscapes or a nuclear winter. The sky lightened briefly around 9 a.m. in some places, but then continued to get darker again, as atmospheric smoke casts the city in a perpetual twilight of red and orange. Fine ash rains over it all. Despite the orange haze, the air at ground level is breathable, with a current AQI of 78 (safe for all but the unusually sensitive, who should avoid exertion). The colored skies are the result of heavy layers of wildfire smoke above the fog, some of it washing down

Joe Biden and Thomas Dewey don’t seem similar. When Dewey ran for president in 1948 (his second attempt as the Republican nominee), he was 46 years old. He had been a brilliant prosecutor and was the successful governor of New York, then the nation’s largest state. Biden is 77 years old. He’s been in politics longer than Dewey had been alive when he ran in 1948. He didn’t distinguish himself during his brief legal career and has never been in charge of running a governmental entity. Dewey was a man of firm principles. For example, during his the 1948 Republican primaries, he opposed outlawing the Communist Party,

The establishment media have largely ignored the radical, communist, and even domestic terrorist roots of antifa, Black Lives Matter, and some of the other violent protesters. While the Washington Examiner’s Jerry Dunleavy has done yeoman’s work in reporting on the Leninist-terrorist roots of BLM’s lead organizers, the nation’s big dailies have mentioned only in passing the movement’s backgrounds and financing.

Washington- As the editor of a magazine that back in 1993 struck the first major blow in destroying the reputation of a president, I think I should have something to say about blackening the reputation of Donald Trump. After all, back in the early 1990s Bill Clinton was apparently widely esteemed as the Virgin President candidate. Today he is hiding under his bed in Chappaqua, fearing what might be revealed when the next batch of documents are revealed in the Jeffrey Epstein–Ghislaine Maxwell scandal. In The American Spectator’s two Troopergate articles of the early 1990s, we established that Bill Clinton preyed upon women flagrantly. Those pieces were the most devastating
