Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said Thursday on CNN’s “The Lead” that Fox News was the “number one cause” of “erosion in our democracy” while discussing the Dominion Voting Systems lawsuit against FNC for defamation. Schumer said, “The threat to our democracy may be greater than it ever has been before because when people doubt that the elections are for real, democracy is on edge. After all, the wellspring, the heart of our democracy, is that we trust the elections. You know, I worry that if this erodes, our democracy will erode, and my children and grandchildren will not grow up in the grand democracy that gave me,

Chuck Schumer's lies are only second to Joe Biden's. He is the poster child for the de-evolution of a segment of society, representing the woke and absurdly dishonest segment of society against all that is descent and upstanding.

Schmuckie demands we trust the results of crooked elections because if you don't go along with the dictators you are a bad communist. If Fox is the cause of our mistrust of the Deep State, it's because they are the only news source that has an audience percentage above a children's shoe size.

I am all in favor of not only "eroding" democracy in our representative republic, but eliminating it entirely. When that word is used by democrats like Schumer, it means totalitarian rule. Remember what John Adams wrote: “I do not say that democracy has been more pernicious on the whole, and in the long run, than monarchy or aristocracy. Democracy has never been and never can be so durable as aristocracy or monarchy; but while it lasts, it is more bloody than either. … Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide. It is in vain to say that democracy is less vain, less proud, less selfish, less ambitious, or less avaricious than aristocracy or monarchy. It is not true, in fact, and nowhere appears in history. Those passions are the same in all men, under all forms of simple government, and when unchecked, produce the same effects of fraud, violence, and cruelty. When clear prospects are opened before vanity, pride, avarice, or ambition, for their easy gratification, it is hard for the most considerate philosophers and the most conscientious moralists to resist the temptation. Individuals have conquered themselves. Nations and large bodies of men, never.”

I wish I could figure what happens to liberal brains or maybe what happened to make them the way they are. Could it be them listening to MSNBC or CNN all day and hearing the blather and untruths spewed from those channels? Then they pass it on to their family and friends? I don't watch those channels but I have seen enough video clips from them to know what they do. They are a menace to our population and it's too bad DirecTV doesn't pull a Newsmax on them.

Think about millions of illiterates crossing our open borders being supported by your taxpayer money, think about your children being indoctrinated into the democrat's perverted trans agenda, think about our economy being destroyed by their sick climate agenda, think about massive increases in violent crime where criminals are being released from prison to prey on the innocent, think about the lawless cities that democrats control.

Lydie and Boris Lavenir, of Guadeloupe - a French island - never imagined they would lay their 19-month-old daughter Enora down for a nap and not have her wake up.

Florida residents warned about tap water

Nearly a quarter million Floridians are being warned to avoid washing their face with tap water after a man died from a brain-eating amoeba in February. The advice, which applies to the nearly 200,000 residents of Charlotte County, comes after a county resident died on February 20. Officials believe the anonymous man caught the brain-eating infection from washing his face and rinsing his sinuses with infected tap water. Infections from Naegleria fowleri, a microscopic single-celled amoeba, are very rare. The infection is known as primary amebic meningoencephalitis (PAM) and occurs when contaminated water enters the nose.

Illegal immigration costs American taxpayers and hospitals billions of dollars in medical costs every year, the Federation for American Immigration Reform pointed out. Last year, when over 98,000 illegal aliens were encountered in the Yuma, Arizona, border sector, the local hospital found itself providing $26 million in uncompensated care to illegal migrants. CEO of Yuma Regional Medical Center Robert Trenschel pointed out at a Congressional hearing that many migrants come to America with “significant disease,” and often require major medical treatments, ranging from dialysis to heart surgery. This strain put on the American healthcare system is by no means limited to Arizona, however.

But there has been no detail about how the $650 billion project will be funded amid concerns over California's growing deficit which is expected to worsen due to a jobs blood bath in its tax-generating Silicon Valley.

DirecTV, one of the first pay-TV services to carry Newsmax when it launched nearly a decade ago, brought in a new right-leaning cable-news channel, The First, in its place.Negotiations between DirecTV and Newsmax continued, the dispute has devolved into accusations about greed, playing politics, and even antisemitism.
