The mayor says he wants to ‘end violence’ in his city and claims that he will ‘take help from anyone to end the violence in his city,’ violence he and his far-left, socialist buddies seem to want to continue around the clock. At the same time, Mayor Wheeler blasts President Donald J. Trump for comments he made about the crappy job the city’s highest civil servant for being such a worthless putz. He claims the president has created ‘hate and division.’ Meanwhile, Acting Homeland Security Director Chad Wolf says ‘all options’ are on the table for ending the violence afflicting major and mid-sized American cities facing increased violence on their streets, violence we allege the Chi-Coms are financing through their lackeys in the Democratic Party, what we now call the Democratic-Socialist Party of America, the DSPA. Elsewhere, “Pro-China Joe” Biden pops out of his hidey hole and denounces the violence afflicting the United States. Uh, okay Joe, okay.

The fact that the Democrats continue dismissing the threat of communist China while constantly braying about ‘Russia, Russia, Russia’ as the imminent threat tells observant readers and contributors that what the Democrats claim others are doing is what they, themselves, are guilty of doing which means the Dems are colluding with the Chi-Coms to defeat Donald Trump and to deliver the United States into the hands of Chairman Xi. Next, in the United States, we have arrived at a startling statistic: so far this year, 37 police officers have been killed in the line of duty and another 700 injured.
- 2020 Sunday B: Sadly today, we do not have the stock market or the current COVID-19 statistics due to an attempted Chi-Com attack into our systems that shut us down for nearly three days. Sorry.
