    A raging fire tore through the church at Mission San Gabriel Arcángel early Saturday, July 11, destroying almost all of the 215-year-old building that is an icon in the small Los Angeles County town.

    UPDATE: Goya Foods’ CEO Robert Unanue refuses to apologize after drawing intense criticism and calls for a boycott against his company for praising President Trump on Thursday. “We were part of a commission called the White House Hispanic Prosperity Initiative and they called on us to be there to see how we could help opportunities within the economic and educational realm for prosperity among Hispanics and among the United States,” Unanue said on “Fox & Friends” on Friday. Unanue said the backlash his visit to the White House and praise of Trump triggered is a “suppression of speech.” He pointed...

    Hi to all. The best phrase I was able to come up with in Spanish, which would be as close as possible to MAGA in its English meaning, was: Mantenga America Grandioso Amen! MantengaAmerica Grandioso Amen! __ God bless the USA!
  • Media Ignore Sharpton Rally, BLM Protests, Blame Trump Rally For Coronavirus Spike

    News outlets are falsely reporting that health officials blamed President Trump’s in-person rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma last month for a rise in coronavirus cases. The Associated Press posted a story titled, “Health official: Trump rally ‘likely’ source of virus surge.” The AP cited Tulsa City-County Health Department Director Dr. Bruce Dart, who never directly mentioned the Trump rally and said there were “several large events” that may have contributed to the spike in cases. “Tulsa County reported 261 confirmed new cases on Monday, a one-day record high, and another 206 cases on Tuesday,” the report said. “Although the health department’s...
  • WATCH: Biden Can't Read Teleprompter, Forgets His Own Proposal

    Even in perfect conditions with teleprompters to read from, Joe Biden still forgets what he's talking about. The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee is barely there. Appearing virtually at the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers' 2020 Virtual Political Conference on Wednesday, Biden appeared to be reading from a teleprompter when he repeatedly lost his train of thought. "Lonnie knows I believe this every fiber of being, we're opposed," Biden began confidently enough before he seemingly lost his place with the teleprompter. Biden then switched to platitudes about making "it happen" and illuminating "the path forward." "What I propose is, is, it...

    CNN’s Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon mocked “ring-wing” news networks Tuesday for reporting on rising crime in major U.S. cities amid the Black Lives Matter protests. Cuomo began by appearing to criticize those who were skeptical about the goal of the BLM movement. He told Lemon “it’s all about creating division” and slammed “state TV” for supposedly spreading “lies” about BLM. “It all fits together, D,” Cuomo said. “The lies about the pandemic. The lies about, you know, what this President will make happen the lies of those around him echo of support. Lies about what Black Lives Matter is...

    BLM folks are still hanging out nightly in the area of St. Johns’s Church, in Washington, D.C., near the White House. While the police cleared away any occupation, any tents and put up fencing around the church, they still show up nightly to walk around and yell things at the cops before they go home. Jorge Ventura picked up some video though that has to be one of the dumbest moves of all time by a BLM protester. Watch the Trump supporter lead this BLM guy over to the cops and watch this doofus take the bait.
  • Republicans need to unite in defense of America’s culture

    NY Post ^ | 7-5-2020 | Tom Klingenstein
    Today’s Republican Party is lost. There is no clear mission driving the GOP. Some Republicans may describe their mission as “freedom” or “limited government.” But this is only a means to a mission. These maxims don’t provide guidance as to what the government should be doing at any particular time. A better mission is this: to “preserve the American way of life.” This is a shorthand for securing the conditions necessary to pursue a worthy life — what the Founders meant by “happiness” in the Declaration of Independence. America used to see ourselves as one people with a single culture,...
  • CNN Joins Twitter In Pushing To Remove ‘Racist’ Language Such As ‘Master Bedroom,’ And ‘Blacklist’

    CNN has joined Twitter in calling for the dropping of certain terms associated with slavery or that “evoke racist notions about Black people.” Some of these terms include “master bedrooms/bathrooms.” CNN argued while it remains “unclear whether the term is rooted in American slavery on plantations, it evokes that history.” The term “master bedroom” was first used in 1926, over sixty years after slavery was abolished. “Blacklist” and “whitelist” are also problematic, according to CNN and Twitter, because even though the terms “don’t appear to be directly connected to race, some argue that they reinforce notions that black=bad and white=good.”

    Seattle Times ^ | 7/3/2020 | Danny Westneat
    After years of trying to mine the wealthy around here, and instead hitting themselves in the face, the Seattle City Council has finally fixed on a potent way to tax the rich. Seattle’s latest corporate tax scheme will almost certainly run into some familiar obstacles, such as a skeptical mayor and a possible legal challenge from big business. But politically, this one is nothing like the failures of the past. It’s the work of Council member Teresa Mosqueda, and the premise is simple enough: Instead of tilting at windmills to try to tax wealth or high incomes, which is legally...

(snip) Those who can see the maneuvers of the GOPe may have noticed the recent positioning of two key players, Nikki Haley and Liz Cheney. Both Haley and Cheney are part of a decepticon club positioning to undermine President Trump and the America First agenda. We have previously outlined the agenda of Haley (here);...

    Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw, one of millions of conservatives fed up with the left-wing extremism overwhelming the country, pointed to just a single example Wednesday of the deadly violence that this Democrat Party- and media-endorsed extremism has wrought. The example he cited from radio station WINS concerned just New York City, yet it involved a startling 112 shooting victims (some still alive, others dead) who’ve been harmed within the past nine or so days alone.

    Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti (D) urged residents Thursday to continue following the social distancing guidelines ahead of Independence Day to curb the spread of the coronavirus. Meanwhile, the police department in Los Angeles posted a photo of a crowded protest taking place in the city. What the mayor said: Garcetti praised the coronavirus measures the city introduced at the beginning of the pandemic and called on residents to avoid large gatherings and wear face coverings in public places or places where they cannot keep a recommended distance this July 4th because “COVID-19 has taken control.”

    A group of about a dozen armed veterans in Lebanon, Tennessee have started watching over the Wilson County Veteran’s Memorial to avert potential looters and vandals from desecrating the site. Veteran Keith Sikora said they are not there to fight and simply want to send a message to those seen on TV rioting and destroying public and private property during the Black Lives Matter protesters. “A show of force can be a very powerful deterrent. We’re not here to fight, unless we have to,” Sikora said.

    As my RedState colleague Bonchie reported earlier, the story about how President Trump had supposedly been briefed about Russia allegedly putting bounties on American soldiers in Afghanistan is quickly falling apart. This is in large part thanks to former NSA John Bolton being caught in a lie about the story, and because numerous named and unnamed sources have stepped forth to state that the intelligence was not substantiated to a level that would require the information to be included in a Presidential Daily Briefing (PDB). Nevertheless, the Usual Suspects are still running wild with the story in an effort to...

    New York City's famous George Washington Monument in Washington Square Park was defaced with red paint on Monday as protesters gathered further downtown outside City Hall ahead of a controversial vote that could slash the city's police budget by $1billion - 16 percent of its total - despite escalating crime and chaos. In the latest symbol of police defiance and unruliness across the city, the vandals tossed red paint at the famous George Washington monument on Monday then fled the scene, leaving city workers to try to power wash it off. President Trump tweeted on Tuesday: 'We are tracking down...

    School officials at Union College in New York recently exposed the personal contact information of student members of the conservative Young Americans for Freedom (YAF) Union College chapter, resulting in a deluge of harassing comments and attacks from progressive students and activists. The story: Samuel Levit, chairman of the YAF Union College chapter, said the group has “been bombarded and slandered with hateful rhetoric, labeling, and vile mischaracterizations” after the university revealed the contact information, according to The College Fix. Union College exposed the YAF students after the group recently took to Twitter and Instagram to condemn the “violence, looting,...

    A pair of vandals launched an attack on Washington Square Park’s famed arch early Monday — tossing balloons filled with red paint at its two statues dedicated to George Washington. The two suspects — a woman dressed in all white with a white bow in her hair and a man in a black shirt and black shorts — fled on Citi Bikes, law enforcement sources said, noting there was surveillance video of the 3:20 a.m. incident.
