Having to listen to her nasal tones, her bitchy voice, her leering smiles is going to be tough over the next two months but as @ChefLilah at our Twitter feed says, ‘thankfully, we won’t have to’ cause they are going to lose. Why didn’t Sen. Harris take questions when her speech concluded? Meanwhile, police in Kenosha, Wisconsin, are trying to extradite the 17 year-old shooter so they can charge him with first-degree murder charges. Where can we donate to for the defense of this young man? He was doing what the cops wouldn’t do, protecting life and property. Please, someone tell us.

Many are hoping to hear Leo Terrell and other great speakers so we shall see. Interesting note: Nancy Pelosi, the speaker of the House, is urging “Pro-China Joe” Biden NOT to debate President Trump. The question is ‘WHY is ‘Mumbles’ urging the nominee of her party NOT to go mano a mano against the president?
- 2020 Thursday B: Various sports leagues are boycotting their schedules/playoff schedules as first the Milwaukee Bucks yesterday followed by other NBA teams, MLB teams, and today, NHL teams over the shooting of Jason Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Look, we get it but the more you politicize your sports the less likely we are to continue watching your games which means the less money you will be able to earn in the future. Speak out on YOUR own but when leagues begin going down this road, it spells trouble for your longevity. Sorry.

Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 72,161 confirmed cases, 1,880 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Let’s look at one other state: Nebraska- currently, they have 32,727 confirmed cases, 386 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Pete Ricketts but why NO mention of recoveries in the Cornhusker State? It would be nice to know?
