The statement followed leftist criticism spread by fake news outlets such as CNN and MSNBC of Trump, blaming the previous day’s deadly violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, VA, on “many sides.” Protesters decrying hatred and racism, set in motion by leftist operative converged around the country, saying they felt compelled to respond to the white supremacist rally in old Virginia.

This is only the third time an Arab nation and the world’s sole Jewish state have come to peace terms. The Palestinians are howling like the rabid dogs they are and the Iranians are sniveling and whining. We hope an accounting will come soon for BOTH of these outlaw nations (well, one thug nation- Iran- and one thug place- Gaza Strip). Meanwhile, ISIS is trying to resurrect itself in Syria so it may be another time to unleash hell on these scumbags. Light ‘em up, President Trump, light ‘em up. Finally, Kooky Kamala Harris, “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s running mate bitches it’s time for the United States to return to a consensus with other nations before we move forward on anything. Screw her. She turns whatever direction the wind drives her. Elsewhere, numerous businesses in Chicago but especially on the Miracle Mile have said, “ENOUGH! We are leaving the crime-ridden city,” all the while, lesbo Mayor Lori Lightfoot blames all her city’s problems on OUTSIDERS. If so, then do something about it but between you, Bill Di Blasio and Eric Garcetti, other cities will become the new metropolises while you destroy your cities for whatever perverse reasons you are doing so.
- 2020 Thursday A: The crumbling government of Lebanon declares a state of emergency following the rising anger enveloping the declining country following the massive explosion that lit up the port and much of the capital city, Beirut. Police have increased powers to go into the streets to combat the angry mobs intent on receiving justice. At least 172 people died in the blast, many more are missing and presumed dead, and at least 3,500 to 3,800 are injured. Most competent sources believe that Hezbollah and their thug leader Hassan Nasrallah bear much of the responsibility for this crime against humanity for having kept more than 2,700 tons of ammonium nitrate in storage, most likely for use against Israel at some unspecified future date. String Nasrallah up and anyone else who colluded with him and who bears responsibility for this criminal, deadly blast.

Mayor Muriel Bowser provides the number of confirmed recoveries: 10,361. Thank you, Madam “Black Lives Matter” Bowser!

- 2020 Thursday D: The Democratic Party’s 2020 Ticket of “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his VP nominee Senator Kamala Harris of California hold a ‘press conference of sorts,’ one in which the aging groper urges all governors across the nation to impose a mandatory three-month mask-wearing law that dictates ALL people, either within our without their homes, must wear masks or face the consequences. Reporters raise hands to ask questions but the duo goes away without answering a single query. Meanwhile, little Baby Evita, aka Sandy Cortez, aka Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka AOC, learns she has sixty seconds to make her ‘speech’ the second night of the DNC ‘convention.’ She takes it in stride, skank that she is…
