Tucker crushes Michelle…

““If you want a barometer for where we are as a country, consider this: Rioters can topple statues of George Washington or Thomas Jefferson and odds are good local police will be ordered to stand down. Remove a neighborhood mailbox for ordinary reasons, and well, that’s such a potent symbol of supposed U.S. government tyranny that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will convene hearings about the ‘the sabotage of the Postal Service’ and members of Congress will openly suggest arresting the postmaster general.“”

— Mark Hemingway

Today in 1968 – 200,000 Warsaw Pact troops and 5,000 tanks invade Czechoslovakia to end the “Prague Spring” of political liberalization. Those are people who got a little too vocal at town hall meetings. And armored vehicles and men clad in military gear are what Podunk P.D. uses to serve warrants for unpaid traffic tickets these days.

Some think that American politics is about personalities. Others think it’s about policies. But in reality, it may be about pieces of cloth.

In the Obama years, the president wearing a tan suit became a flash point for traditionalism and patriotism — or lack thereof, as the right wing criticized a Democrat’s perceived impertinence in wearing such a casual suit color. But the couture in the Trump years has gone from the Confederate flag to the Blue Lives Matter flag to the face mask that could save your life.

In this pandemic, the mask has become a symbol of defiance and freedom for those who refuse to wear it. For those who wear the mask, it’s a symbol of respect and responsibility. In turn, it has become perhaps the most polarizing and divisive symbol of the young decade, split down partisan, gender, and racial lines.

A veteran and business owner living in Shasta County, California is completely fed up with the authoritarian Covid lockdown orders so he gave a stern warning to the Board of Supervisors.

Residents and business owners last week held a rally outside of the Board of Supervisors chamber and demanded Shasta County re-open and lift its ridiculous mask mandate.

The most recent report from the Army on street and outlaw motorcycle gang activity in the ranks shows both trending upward, while incidents of domestic extremism remain roughly constant.

An internal report, obtained by Military.com through a Freedom of Information Act request, shows that gang members were tied to dozens of Army felony law enforcement reports and more than 100 criminal investigations in fiscal 2018, the latest year for which data is available. While these reports and investigations make up less than 1% of all Army law enforcement incidents, the new report shows that the little-discussed problem of military gang activity continues to be a headache for base commanders and other service leaders.

A baseball bat is a lethal weapon.  One blow to the head can kill, or perhaps even worse for the victim, it could maim due to TBI.

First of all, don’t be found among such people.  Second, the first time this occurred, the victim should have pulled a .45 ACP pistol and made it clear that one more advance would have sent a 230 grain ball his way.

This is the only way to handle people like this.  The victim is assuming that the next blow won’t be to the back of the skull.

Oh and make sure to note that since the Portland DA is self-identified Antifa, no charges will be filed.

(WSOC/CNN/Meredith) – A North Carolina man is facing charges for shooting a woman in the arm with a BB gun after she removed his President Donald Trump campaign sign from his yard.

Peggy Fox was visiting her brother’s home in Lincolnton. When she arrived, she saw a Trump sign in what she thought was her brother’s yard. She assumed it was a prank, since her brother doesn’t express his political views, she said. Thinking it was a prank, she pulled the sign from the yard.

Tucker Mocks Left’s Reaction to Michelle Obama’s DNC Speech — She Is ‘Their L. Ron Hubbard’

“Michelle Obama could teach a master’s class in this mode of communication. Last night she delivered a taped address from her $11 million estate on Martha’s Vineyard. Michelle Obama, it’s fair to say, has done pretty well for herself. But what she wanted you to know last night was that she is still a victim — she and everyone who looks like her, so shut up and accept her dominion over you.”

“We don’t want to be too harsh about this,” Carlson continued. “We’re not lawyers, but we understand the constitutional limits of the First Amendment is now defined — no shouting ‘fire’ in a crowded theater, no criticizing Michelle Obama. We know that, so we’re going to say this as gently as possible, meaning absolutely no disrespect, and of course being certain to pronounce everyone’s name correctly — but what you heard was just a total and complete crock. A never-ending list of innocent people of color continue to be murdered? That’s what Michelle Obama told us.”

“Well, no,” he continued. “So far this year, there have been a total of eight unarmed black men killed by police in this country. Not a never-ending list, eight. Last year there was a total of 14. So what Michelle Obama just told you is a total lie, a calculated lie, a lie designed to make America more fearful, more angry, more divided, and thereby help her candidate win. That’s what Michelle Obama just did. But pretty much no one pointed it out last night. They were too afraid to because, as Michelle Obama made very clear, if you disagree with what she says, you are a bigot.”

Carlson mocked the media reaction to Michelle Obama’s speech, likening her to Church of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard.

“You probably still think of the left as secular, but not anymore. They are fervent religious fanatics. Michelle Obama is their L. Ron Hubbard. Everything she does is good by definition. She’s the most beautiful, the smartest, the wisest. If Michelle Obama played golf, she would shoot an 18 every time. In the words of Van Jones, her speech last night was extraordinary. Even though, as you know, if you saw it, it was exactly the opposite of that. The speech was ordinary. It was totally pedestrian, like almost everything Michelle Obama says. But you can’t admit that. You’ve got to pretend she is Aristotle. That’s the law.”
