The final 2016 debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump gave voters much to think about. That was the night Clinton admitted that she was willing to engage in a proxy war with Russia in Syria. For his part, Trump highlighted Clinton’s radical support of abortion through all nine months of pregnancy, a charge she could not deny.

Sweden has been held up by freedom lovers in America as the poster child for a common sense approach to the Covid-19 panicdemic.
And son of gun – we were right – and they are right.
The nation of Sweden didn’t run away and hide from the coronavirus. They didn’t lock down – they didn’t force small businesses into permanent closure, or all don masks like a bunch of scared lemmings.
They knew that putting off the inevitable will do nothing but kick the can down the road. And now, according to their country’s experts, they’ve reached herd immunity.
from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:
The other day I was discussing with fellow geeks the still-ongoing rioting, looting, destruction of property and general violence in cities throughout our country.
The conversation eventually bumped up against the latest “bail reform” laws promoted and passed by radical leftist city and state leaders.
And this got me to thinking about the juxtaposition of what leftists think is important and what isn’t. In other words, just how consistent are they?

Hi! I’m the really angry Common Constitutionalist and I want talk to you about the Panic-demic, or as Steve Deace of the Blaze calls it – Panic Porn.
There’s nothing quite as jarring as taking a leisurely bike ride down the once bustling Main St in your city or town, only to discover that’s it’s now a virtual ghost town.
And it’s not the fault of these shop owners, nor of their former employees, nor of a soften economy, a recession, or even a virus.
This whole mess has been and continues to be caused by scared, over-reactive, willfully ignorant and simultaneously power hungry government officials.

Giants’ Sam Coonrod says faith kept him from kneeling during racial justice demonstration
I give my thoughts on whether it was actually faith, or a political or racial statement, and what the likely repercussions will be.
And as an aside, What is MLB, as in Major League Baseball, spelled backwards? That’s right – it’s BLM, or Black Lives Matter. Fascinating!
A masked Saint Fauci threw out the first pitch at a Yankees vs. Nationals season opener baseball game.
He had donned his Washington Nationals jersey and official panicdemic mask.
He was then seen sitting in the stands, yukking it up, sandwiched side by side, by two others.

More Evidence That Trump’s Silent Majority Is Real
New poll says moderates and conservatives are genuinely afraid to discuss their politics
When President Trump insisted last month that his supporters included a substantial silent majority that isn’t represented in the polls, the Democrats and the corporate media devoted a surprisingly large amount of energy to “debunking” the claim. Indeed, their reaction was so shrill and ubiquitous that they seemed, to paraphrase Hamlet’s hapless mother, to be protesting too much.
A new poll released Wednesday by the Cato Institute suggests a reason for this frantic reaction to Trump’s assertion. The survey of 2,000 Americans 18 years of age and older unambiguously indicates that the reluctance of moderates and conservatives to share their political views has increased significantly since 2017.

The York Times writes that President Trump plans to expand the use of “federal troops” from not just Portland, Or., but also other cities like Chicago, maybe Philadelphia, New York City and Detroit.
“Governors and other officials reacted angrily to the president’s move, calling it an election-year ploy as they squared off over crime, civil liberties and local control that has spread from Portland, Ore., across the country,” the Times bloviated.
An election year ploy? This whole Marxist driven mess is nothing more than an election year ploy.
Let me remind you who is driving this train. The bogus Black Lives Matter movement and their bankroll of $1.6 billion and counting.
You read that right.
What’s the difference between the Communist Chinese dragging people out of their homes for “safety” sake, and today’s America?
Answer: Location – that’s all. One is forced to leave their home, the other is forced to stay put.
Now what’s the difference between the Communist Chinese welding peoples’ doors shut so they can’t escape, and demanding American citizens not leave their home under penalty of the new police State? Answer: Very little.
Is this what we’ve so rapidly devolved into?

Kentucky Couple Forced To Wear Ankle Bracelets After Refusing Self-Isolation Order
A Kentucky couple can’t travel more than 200 feet from home after authorities slapped a pair of ankle bracelets on them following an argument over COVID-19.
Elizabeth Linscott tested positive for the virus last weekend despite having no symptoms. Following her test, the health department contacted her and asked that she sign documents agreeing to self-quarantine unless she calls the health department first. Linscott refused to sign the form, the Self-isolation and Controlled Movement Agreed Order.
I’ve actually joked in past about if someone gets hit by a bus, the authorities will count him as a Covid-19 death. I guess it’s not a joke.
And hey – if you can’t believe State bureaucrats, who can you believe?

Florida man in his 20s listed among COVID-19 fatalities — but health officer says he died in motorcycle crash
While Florida listed a man in his 20s as among the state’s COVID-19 fatalities, a county health officer told WOFL-TV that the man died in a motorcycle crash.
The station was looking into records that showed two individuals in their 20s as coronavirus fatalities and asked Orange County Health Officer Dr. Raul Pino if either person had any underlying conditions.

Kayleigh McEnany is so effective that the MSM is now lying by deceptively editing her comments
Yesterday saw a new low in irresponsible media reporting on a briefing by a presidential press secretary. Many media outlets outright lied about what Kayleigh McEnany said by cutting her off in mid-sentence in a comment on school reopening, thereby creating an impression that was opposite of the truth.
