https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2020/08/07/senate-majority-whip-john-thune-positions-to-support-national-mail-in-ballots/

Thune answered, adding: “I think we want to assure people it’s going to work, it’s secure and if they vote that way it’s going to count.”

He is a warrior. Thanks, Jim. And he’s tough. I’m not going to wrestle him ever. I promise. And another warrior — a great fellow who has been right at our side. He works with Jim and I so much and so hard: Bob Latta. Bob. (Applause.) Thank you very much. Thank you, Bob.

no one knows better than the workers of Whirlpool the high cost of past administrations’ economic blunders and surrender. On the question of foreign trade, previous leaders were guided by a shameful policy of capitulation, submission, and retreat. For decades, you watched as politicians let foreign nations steal our jobs, loot our factories, and plunder the crown jewels of the U.S. economy. And the word “plunder” is capitalized.

Washington stood idly by as other countries engaged in unfair trade practices, such as massive subsidies, currency manipulation,

The reason why President Trump said we might not see him for a while, is because he will need to lay low for some time, as the indictments are made public this week. Get ready for President Trump to turn the tide on the deep state scumbags. They’re all going down, fast and furious.

@BeenTreadUpon

his statement about being seen less
was linked to his mentioning;
“the middle men” who “make more then the pharma industry”

not talking down or being rude

when President Trump makes these statements you have to:
Listen
To EVERY word*

sometimes listen with WEBSTERS
sometimes listen with BLACKS
sometimes Listen with CORNELL

sometimes Listen with MILITARY MANUALS

he isnt afraid
he is FIERCE
he is pragmatic

he took off the hand cuffs with isis_
he is standing toe to toe with the globalist
and
their MASTERS

the field is laid
he is now ready to attack the MASTERS
the middle men . . . .

the fact that they are called the middle
does not mean
they have humans* over them
(note * emphasis)

he will be seen
but he is adjusting his venue
He will limit his exposure to threats
only hardened venues

NOTE:
he said you may be seeing me less
but the next day

IMHO this website is just as productive as any auto manufacturer or any other campaign stop. It is affecting hearts and minds and is one of the few bastions for free speech left.

That’s a big reason that Kim tried to 5150 him. He is besieged by his ex wife, and her use of the kids on him. He is likely deprived sleep, and people try to push him over the edge.
She has committed herself to Hollywood and will do whatever they tell her to do .

Whitmer visited Joe Biden a couple weeks ago as part of a full vetting for the VP spot (supposedly). I’d point out that she and the other VP candidates all answered questions as to why Americans do not deserve the right to own guns. The list of amendments she believes in is far shorter than the list she doesn’t believe in.

https://www.detroitnews.com/story/news/politics/2020/08/07/report-whitmer-traveled-meet-person-biden/3324949001/

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer traveled to Delaware last weekend to meet with Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee’s first known in-person session with a potential running mate as he nears a decision, according to the Associated Press.

Early reports detailing the criteria Biden was using to select a running mate didn’t exactly match Whitmer’s qualifications, said Matt Grossmann, a political science professor and director for the Institute for Public Policy and Social Research at Michigan State University. Whitmer lacks national campaign experience and a close relationship with Biden, he said.

But she is a relatively popular governor of a swing state that will be integral to the November election, Grossmann said. And she won that position by engaging with voters on everyday issues that could also work on the national level.

https://dailycaller.com/2020/08/07/governor-whitmer-proudly-wipes-out-wolverine-state-gun-stores/

Gov. Whitmer’s highlight of the event was boasting about putting 6,600 Michiganders in the firearm and ammunition industry out of work by deeming them “non-essential” during the coronavirus pandemic. Most of their industry peers across the United States could remain on the job. Gov. Whitmer, though, shuttered gun businesses in her state and was proud of it on her Everytown Veepstakes tryout with Shannon Watts.

“I would do it again. I absolutely stand by the decision that I made,” Gov. Whitmer said. “I’m not going to apologize. And I’m not going to be bullied into doing things differently…It was very clear, the purchase of a gun does not fall in that [life-sustaining] criteria.”

Should she be 2020 presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s running mate, Gov. Whitmer would fit the ticket. Former Vice President Biden’s antigun track record is well-known and he’s had his own run-in with Michigan gun owners, scolding one Detroit Second Amendment supporter, saying “You’re full of sh*t!” Together the two would make for the most antigun presidential ticket in modern history.

Pools are open and water parks are supposed to be closed, according to Whitmer. Which leads to stuff like this. Bowling Halls, Bingo Parlors and Amusement parks wonder why they can’t be open but Casinos can? Well, the casinos are owned, not by indians, but by Democrats in good standing like the Marian Ilitch. The Ilitches own Little Ceasers Pizza, The Detroit Tigers and the Detroit Red Wings among many other things.

While she claims she lives by data, science and facts it’s more driven by which democrat stakeholder is involved in which industry.

https://www.mlive.com/news/muskegon/2020/08/michigans-adventure-claims-water-park-is-a-swimming-pool-remains-open-despite-shutdown-order.html

Michigan’s Adventure’s water park remains open a week after the governor’s shutdown order because officials there claim it is a swimming pool, according to the local health director.

It’s been more than a week since Gov. Gretchen Whitmer issued an order specifically naming water parks as operations that must close due to the spread of COVID-19. Since then, the WildWater Adventure water park north of Muskegon has continued operating.

A Michigan’s Adventure spokeswoman reiterated to MLive on Friday, Aug. 7, that the WildWater Adventure park has not closed because we “have not been asked.” Meanwhile, Whitmer’s spokesperson told MLive the park must “remain shut.” It has been open since July 13.

The park was told to close by a health inspector who was on site, but park officials “challenged that,” Kathy Moore, Muskegon County’s public health director, told MLive.

Michigan’s Adventure sent Moore an email claiming that it operates as an outdoor swimming pool and not a water park so is not subject to closure. Under the public health code, water parks are considered in the same category as swimming pools, states the email, portions of which Moore shared with MLive.

Whether it be Whitmer or Harris or someone else you can bet that they will only be VP for a very short time if the election is stolen from us by the electoral college, Biden will be dead or declared unfit to serve. The Dimz don’t care about the popular vote. It’s the electoral college they are after and if theses POS’s know who are appointed they will squeeze them into submission by hook or by crook. Both Whitmer and Harris come across as strong authoritative voices and have all the signs of a good commie. Be prepared for anything as we can all see the shit is now hitting the fans and will only get worse as we move closer to November

Vice President Mike Pence is coming to Wisconsin for a campaign appearance Aug. 19, which happens to be the third day of the Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee.

And Pence’s visit is set for the same day that Biden’s vice presidential pick is nominated and delivers her acceptance speech.

Good Morning from Vancouver Island, just north of the Idiocracy known as the American west coast. Just safely out of reach of the BLM terrorists and the Antifa mental cases, I watch the gong show. If you Americans do not re elect Trump, you will deserve what befalls you next. It will be a one way ticket to hell if the dems get control and you should all know that by now.

I live in a somewhat less dangerous Idiocracy. We have a man-child whose power is similar to that of Samson of “Samson and Delilah”. He relies on his hair for his power. Yes, Canada elected a guy with great hair, but no brains. And he is now being shown to be the most corrupt PM in Canadian History.

Canada is already a lost cause, but it’s a small unimportant country, population-wise, so no biggie. Canadians are not actually nice, they are tolerant, but that’s wearing thin these days.

So that’s your Canadian update for today. Have a great week-end.

Political correctness in space, Nasa to rename space objects that offend them.

https://nypost.com/2020/08/08/nasa-to-remove-offensive-names-from-planets-and-other-heavenly-bodies/

Political correctness has now expanded to space, where NASA says planets, galaxies and other heavenly bodies will no longer be referred to by “offensive” nicknames.

In a press release Thursday, the space agency said that all planets and heavenly bodies will be referred only to by their scientific names, the Houston Chronicle reported.

Under the new rules, the “Eskimo Nebula,” discovered in 1787 by William Hershel, will only be referred to as NGC 2392.

The so-called “Siamese Twins Galaxy” will likewise be known only as NGC 4567 and NGC 4568.

“As the scientific community works to identify and address systemic discrimination and inequality in all aspects of the field, it has become clear that certain cosmic nicknames are not only insensitive but can be actively harmful,” the agency said in a news release.

“NASA is examining its use of unofficial terminology for cosmic objects as part of its commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.”

Trump rips Portland rioters: ‘These are really sick, disturbed people’

As yet another night of unrest loomed in Portland, Ore., on Friday, President Trump told reporters the federal government could very easily put a stop to it – if only local leaders would seek help.

“We will go in and stop the problems in Portland in 24 hours,” the president said at a news conference in New Jersey, according to OregonLive.com.

He added: “We’re supposed to be asked.”

Massachusetts now has a ‘COVID Enforcement and Intervention Team’

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.bostonherald.com/2020/08/07/massachusetts-now-has-a-covid-enforcement-and-intervention-team/amp/

The multi-agency squad is expected to help increase enforcement of public health rules statewide and coordinate local interventions in communities labeled as “higher-risk” due to their numbers of new cases and percentages of positive tests.

The Executive Office and Public Safety and Security and the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency will coordinate the effort.

It will involve the state’s coronavirus command center, the Massachusetts State Police, Department of Labor Standards, Division of Professional Licensure, Department of Public Health, Division of Local Services, the Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission and the Executive Office of Technology Services and Security.

High-risk communities will see targeted inspections that include fines of up to $500 per violation of new rules starting Tuesday that limit outdoor gatherings to 50 people and require face coverings for gatherings of more than 10. Outdoor gatherings for political or religious purposes are exempt,

…so protests are still exempt…

A couple of days ago young kids broke into a middle school in Marshfield, Ma and stole a couple of musical instruments.

Yesterday, the Marshfield PD posted a picture of the kids taken with a security camera there on the PD facebook page, with their faces blurred out.

The PD issued a warning that if they didn’t turn themselves in by today, they would un blur the pictures but wouldn’t cite them for NOT WEARING MASKS ON PUBLIC PROPERTY!🤣

Big 10 looking at Spring football.

https://www.freep.com/story/sports/university-michigan/wolverines/2020/08/08/2020-michigan-msu-big-ten-football-season/3326536001/

Big Ten presidents are expected to meet Saturday afternoon to discuss the future of the conference’s fall sports seasons, multiple sources with direct knowledge of the situation told the Free Press.

And it’s possible a spring football season could be on the table.

Both sources were briefed about the call but were not authorized to speak publicly about it. The call was previously scheduled, and was not an emergency call, the sources said. However, the topic of conversation has shifted to the college football season.

Going into the call, the sources were told Big Ten commissioner Kevin Warren preferred a spring football season, although no decision had been made.

The presidents meeting comes hours after the Mid-American Conference — which includes Eastern Michigan, Central Michigan and Western Michigan — became the first from the FBS to cancel its fall college football season in wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The MAC will instead pursue a spring football season, commissioner Jon Steinbrecher said Saturday in a conference call.

I would just like to pose an open question, hoping for a good answer. I commute between Sweden/Denmark and USA.. But I have only seen the cities, and I don’t hate city life. It is just that I have a dream of small town America that I have never seen. I imagine decent people with decent morals, perhaps a bit too “god fearing” for my taste, but decent people all the same. I imagine a local diner serving real burgers and barbecues with real steaks. I imagine carrying a gun and shopping from Mom & Pop shops. Does this world still exist or is it just in my imagination? Because if I could make a living in such a place, I would move in a split second.

Dan066

Where do you want to start? Just about every state has some type of “rural” setting. Like Vegas, an hour or so out of town you have several quiet places. Boulder City is one. The city of Overton, Mezquite, etc. are town going towards Utah that small, “western” small. The “main streets” vary but they are still there. Small towns differ of course by area.

My little town in Georgia sounds about what HateSpeech thinks about. It can be boring, but it’s a good place to live. My kids don’t live here or like it,, “It’s too boring” they say.

Kane,

This story might be of interest. The legal defense team of Amber Guyger reportedly wants to have her murder conviction overturned. Amber Guyger was a Dallas cop who entered another man’s apartment (allegedly by mistake) and shot and killed him in his own apartment. The story got national media attention.

Google Speakers Are Listening to More Than Just Voice Commands

August 8th, 2020
Via: Protocol:
Last week, Reddit user Brazedowl received a curious notification on his phone: Google was telling him that a smoke detector in his home had gone off. Brazedowl, a teacher from North Carolina who goes by Drew in real life, knew about the smoke alarm — he was at home himself and had just fried some sausages in his kitchen. But up until that moment, he had no idea that his smart speaker was able to detect such events.

I read that story yesterday, had time think it over. Covid-19 damages the red blood cells ability to carry oxygen.
I was short of breath after minor exertion for 90 days and completely recovered at 150-160 days and I had a good strong battle with it, early on before panic set in. February 09 I got x-rays and then came home and sat it out. The article refuses to consider the blood impairment angle. Once my blood cells recovered completely I felt 100% mentally and intellectually..

This list is interesting and answers many things. Found it here by another poster

Also Sara Carters piece yesterday was very good and informative as she has been deep in the bowels of the Trump coup gahtering info for the entire time. Many are getting disappointed as it seems DOJ has waited too long ? We shall see ?

She and many others realize if these people are NOT prosecuted it means we have no real laws and the entire system will be undermined of any trust going forward forever ! Yeh it is all critical because all systems are based 100% on confidence in that system ! We are at a crossroad for sure not just a red/blue election by far.

As promised here is the update from the kids that broke into the Marshfield Middle school and stole a couple of musical instruments.

From the Marshfield PD Facebook page:

Whew😱 That post certainly elicited an emotional response! We identified the 3 young men and they will be facing charges. Some of the property has been recovered and we are working on the rest. The reason for not posting their pictures was the suspicion that they were possibly juveniles (under 18 years of age).
While we like to have fun on social media we take it very seriously and utilize this forum to alert the public to potential emergencies, assist us in solving crimes and locating missing persons, and sharing news and updates. We did not take the posting of this incident lightly. This was a serious crime and there will be consequences. We thank the public for their continued assistance during these trying times.
And……..while we’re on a roll with this ….coincidentally we have 3 young men who defaced our new Harbor Walk along Dyke Road yesterday at 3:36pm …..and …wait for it…..YES we have PICTURES!!! We have other pictures of these 3 but since we set the precedent today and are in a giving mood you have until 8am Saturday to come by the station and turn yourself in.

Huawei to stop making high-end Kirin 9000 smartphone chips due to U.S. sanctions

https://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2020/08/08/business/corporate-business/huawei-kirin-9000-smartphone-chips-us/

Chinese telecom giant Huawei said production of its most advanced smartphone chips would stop in September due to U.S. sanctions, causing a “huge loss”.

Huawei — the world’s biggest producer of telecoms networking equipment — has become a pivotal issue in the geopolitical standoff between Beijing and Washington, which claims the firm poses a significant cybersecurity threat.

Huawei CEO Yu Chengdong told a tech industry forum on Friday that production of the company’s high-end Kirin 9000 chipset would stop from Sept. 15, due to U.S. sanctions.

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. (TSMC), which has been making Kirin 9000 chips using U.S. equipment, has stopped taking orders from Huawei since May, fearing possible repercussions.

“Huawei’s mobile phones have no chip supply, which makes our shipment volume this year a little less than 240 million units (shipped last year),”Huawei CEO Yu Chengdong said. “This is a huge loss for us.”

Twitter is interested in TikTok but financing for the deal would be unlikely.

https://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2020/08/09/business/twitter-tiktok-us/

Twitter Inc. has approached TikTok’s Chinese owner ByteDance to express interest in acquiring the U.S. operations of the video-sharing app, two people familiar with the matter said, as experts raised doubts over Twitter’s ability to put together financing for a potential deal.

It is far from certain that Twitter would be able to outbid Microsoft Corp. and complete such a transformative deal in the 45 days that U.S. President Donald Trump has given ByteDance to agree to a sale, the sources said on Saturday.

Twitter has a market capitalization of close to $30 billion, almost as much as the valuation of TikTok’s assets to be divested, and would need to raise additional capital to fund the deal, according to the sources.

“Twitter will have a hard time putting together enough financing to acquire even the U.S. operations of TikTok. It doesn’t have enough borrowing capacity”, said Erik Gordon, a professor at the University of Michigan.

“If it (Twitter) tries to put together an investor group, the terms will be tough. Twitter’s own shareholders might prefer that management focus on its existing business”, he added.

The money quote from the article is this. “If Republicans would have a shot of winning the House majority back, I would think that they would have to win at least one of these two districts,” Kondik said. “These are the kinds of places where they need to stage some sort of comeback.”

Both of Slotkin and Stevens are in districts that lean Republican, but there is a large money disparity.

The reasons why these two women won.
1) Trump wasn’t on the ballot, it was a non-presidential election.
2) The retiring governor would not endorse or help the Republican running, leading to lower enthusiasm
3) Pot was on the ballot driving potheads to vote.

Should these two districts vote Republican we will also likely see John James win the Senate and Trump win the state.

https://www.detroitnews.com/story/news/politics/2020/08/09/republican-challengers-face-cash-disadvantage-slotkin-junge-stevens-esshaki-races/3301692001/

Through July 15, Slotkin had $5 million in cash on hand, which was 11 times greater than the $445,000 for Junge.

When Slotkin two years ago defeated Republican then-U.S. Rep. Mike Bishop of Rochester, the combined spending of outside groups and the candidates set a Michigan record at $28.3 million. The spending doubled the prior record of $14.15 million set in 2010 in the Democrat Mark Schauer-Republican U.S. Rep. Tim Walberg contest.

In the 11th District, Stevens had $3 million in money available — more than 14 times as much as Esshaki’s roughly $213,000 through mid-July. Stevens’ 2018 victory over Bloomfield Township Republican businesswoman Lena Epstein resulted in $19 million in spending by the candidates and outside groups.

Despite the large money lead, Democrats don’t consider victory to be a shoo-in in the 8th District, where President Donald Trump won in 2016 and is the more conservative-leaning of the two Detroit area districts. Slotkin won by 4 percentage points in 2018.

—————————–
Paul Junge

The 53-year-old Junge emerged from a field of four Republican candidates Tuesday with 35% of the vote after moving back last year to Michigan.

He spent 2014-18 in Washington, D.C., where he worked for the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee before gaining a senior adviser position at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services when Trump took office. Junge also spent time working in the family business, All Star Maintenance, which maintains military housing.

Immediately after his win was solidified Wednesday, Junge began to focus on Slotkin, a 44-year-old former CIA agent who he said campaigned in 2018 on a moderate platform but has rarely left the folds of the House’s Democratic majority.

“Elissa Slotkin has benefited tremendously from out-of-state funds, and that creates a challenge,” Junge said Wednesday. “But there’s no amount of fundraising that can excuse for the voters of the 8th District a representative who votes 96% of the time with Speaker Nancy Pelosi.”

———————————

Eric Esshaki

Esshaki, 36, acknowledged that a tough race is ahead, but said his messaging and ideas will win over the well-financed Stevens, 37.

“I think I won because people responded to my message that politics is broken. I think they want government to tackle real problems,” he said. “I think they like that I was a nurse. I think that I stand up for what’s right.”

Stevens isn’t a moderate, Esshaki said, adding that his key to victory would be in proving her left-leaning loyalties to voters through keen messaging on issues such as health care and the economy.

“When you contrast that to Haley Stevens and solutions that she puts forward in terms of health care in going towards a government-run system, people will see that contrast,” Esshaki said. “I think that she ran as a moderate and has been anything but. She’s voting with Nancy Pelosi. She’s called for Medicare for All on more than one occasion. Every policy she supports is (for) higher taxes. None of that is good for business, none of that is considered moderate.”

Back the Blue supporters greatly outnumber Black Lives matter protest in Minden, Nevada. Includes video.

https://www.rgj.com/story/news/2020/08/08/minden-protest-douglas-county-sheriff-nevada-black-lives-matter-blm/3328009001/

What started as a protest to support the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office in Minden early Saturday turned into a fierce battle of words between hundreds of Blue Lives Matter protesters and a small group of Black Lives Matter protesters.

Douglas County Sheriff Dan Coverley addressed a crowd of about 400 supporters Saturday morning, many of them chanting “Stand with Dan” and holding American flags and “God and Guns” protest signs.

“I love this community and my focus has and always will be on protecting it,” Coverley said in front of the sheriff’s office. “We understand recent correspondence between myself and the Douglas County library has made national attention and may be the reason you are here today.”

By 10 a.m., a small counter-protest of about 100 Black Lives Matter supporters had gathered across Main Street in downtown Minden.

By mid-morning a crowd crossed the street and surrounded the Black Lives Matter group, shouting at them to “get the hell out of our town,” and calling them a number of obscenities.
