    Wanted to share this with the group. Tell me if this has happened to you, and if so, how often. Was at Publix parking lot yesterday about to exit my car. A young couple, early twenties, walked to their hatch back parked next to me, and loaded up their groceries. The man was wearing a basketball shirt that had Trump/Pence on the front in big letters "2020" I watched in the space of just two minutes two people walk up to them, to give them the Thumbs up, and I imagine with some vocal encouragement. I maintain, that a lot...
  • Vanity: My Simple Show of Support for Our Law Enforcement Officers

    My own frustration... | June 23, 2020 | Ronaldus Magnus
    Although I have always supported law enforcement and voted for candidates who support the rule of law, I have never felt the need to publicize my support before now. However, the videos I have seen of heroic police officers in Miami and elsewhere being abused and spat upon has changed my thinking. Furthermore, I have begun to notice more than a few “Black Lives Matter” signs popping up in the front lawns of my affluent and otherwise majority conservative county. The most shocking aspect of this widespread violence throughout the country over the last few weeks has been the silence...
  • Coming together for CASA (GOOD NEWS Fun Run SUPPORTING Police in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho!)

    Coeur d'Alene Press ^ | June 14, 2020 | Bill Buley
    When Idaho State Police Capt. John Kempf shouted “Stop. Police,” at the group of about 50 at McEuen Park on Saturday, they ignored that command. Instead, they ran. Sirens began screaming. Lights started flashing. Adults and kids kept running. And Kempf watched and smiled. Some ISP troopers on hand even applauded. “This is exciting, especially in light of the COVID stuff and everything else that’s going on, so it’s great to see the community coming together for a cause,” he said. That cause was the “ISP 5K Foot Pursuit,” an event to highlight the partnership between CASA (Court Appointed Special...

    I asking for suggestions on how we can show our public support for police. It should be something we can do enmasse. Many of us have watched this assault on our country with horrified impotence. This can't continue. We need some way to show police that we are behind the police and appreciate them and that we support the rule of law.

    Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski proclaims today that she may not be able to support the reelection of President Donald Trump.  President Trump fires back:Long term CTH readers will well remember how Tea Party candidate Joe Miller was backed by Sarah Palin when he stunningly defeated Lisa Murkowski during the republican primary in 2010.  However, Murkowski would not accept the primary defeat and the entitlement-minded incumbent ran as a write-in candidate, and enlisted the assistance of democrats in Alaska to retain her seat in the general election.The Tea Party was furious at the level of elitist refusal to accept the primary...
  • The Big Reason You May Not Get a Stimulus Check (child support)

    **SNIP** Normally, when you're behind on certain debts or obligations, like back taxes or federal student loan payments, you risk having your tax refund garnished. Under the CARES Act, you won't lose your stimulus payment for those same reasons -- but overdue child support is the one exception. If you're behind on child support, your relief check could be partially garnished or garnished in full, depending on the amount you owe. Here's even more bad news: If you file a joint tax return with your spouse, and your spouse is behind on child support, your entire stimulus payment could be...

  • Melania’s Class Boosts Female Support for Trump

    First lady Melania Trump’s classy ability to handle attacks on her while keeping the focus on her and the president’s agenda steady is a top reason Republican women are flocking to support President Trump, according to a new survey. In a deep dive into the reasons women back the president, the survey put Trump’s accomplishments and his wife at the top, and said that she is a sign that the president has good “judgment.” The survey from the Frontier Center, provided Friday to Secrets, said, “Female supporters included First Lady Melania Trump as one of Trump’s greatest assets as she,...

    Just when it seemed as though the transgender movement was reaching a fever-pitch and it was becoming impossible to stand up to the zealous mob of trans-enthusiasts, it appears some celebrities may have found the secret to shutting them down and evading the dreaded “cancel culture” imposed on anyone who dares speak truth or reason. Perhaps this culture battle is not all but lost after all. Back in December, famed author J.K. Rowling tweeted her support for Maya Forstater, a former tax expert who lost her job at think tank Center for Global Development for declaring that men and women...
  • How billboards warning motorists of I-80 bridge safety concerns created one of 2019′s biggest stories

    The Chicago Tribune ^ | December 29, 2019 | Ted Slowik
    Will County billboards that warned motorists about bridges stoked public-safety fears and helped convince state lawmakers of the need to approve a $45 billion infrastructure plan. The billboards and their impact arguably deserve to rank among the top political stories of the year, if not the decade. Construction unions paid to display the messages “Cross bridge at your own risk” and “Bridge ahead in critical condition” on electronic billboards near Interstate 80 bridges over the Des Plaines River in Joliet. The billboards heightened motorists’ fears about crumbling infrastructure and generated bipartisan support for the $45 billion Rebuild Illinois program. Marc...

    hould Christians continue to support Donald Trump as President, even during the Democrats’ impeachment show and the 2020 presidential election? An editorial in Christianity Today called for the U.S. Senate to remove Trump on impeachment, using as its theology talking points from the Democrat Party. Did God choose Donald Trump — an unlikely prospect — to help lead the United States of America back in a Godly direction? Such discussions reveal more about people’s ideas and misunderstandings about Christianity. This topic could be endless because it involves the Creator and Superintendent of the entire universe. But let’s start somewhere. Donald...

    Approximately 3,000 strangers came to the funeral of a Vietnam veteran with no surviving family. On Wednesday, strangers from Florida, Tennessee, and Iowa reportedly drove to a Michigan funeral for 67-year-old Wayne Lee Wilson, who died on May 28. The former truck driver “proudly” served in the military from 1971 to 1977, including during the Vietnam War, according to an obituary from the Brown Funeral Home & Cremation Services. “He was passionate about helping his fellow wounded veterans and encouraged others to give to the Paralyzed Veterans Association,” read Wilson’s obit. “Mr. Wilson has no surviving relatives.” The notice stated,...

    The Association of Mature American Citizens ^ | June 14, 2019 | Trevor Loudon, the Epoch Times
    When Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) announced the launch of H.R.1384, “Medicare for All,” on the Capitol steps on Feb. 27, 2019, it was a major step toward a socialist America. Jayapal was surrounded by more than 100 supporters, many from groups such as National Nurses United, the Center for Popular Democracy, Our Revolution, Coalition of Labor Union Women, and the Labor Campaign for Single Payer. Appropriately, all of the organizations represented are controlled, or at least heavily influenced, by America’s largest Marxist organization, the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), which can quite rightly claim credit for the socialist single-payer movement...

    Hey, do you remember all of the excitement over Betomania? It was all the rage for at least a week or so back in January or early February. Karen Townsend pondered the question a little while back, asking whatever happened to all the Beto excitement. At the time, she proposed that O’Rourke might run into some trouble making the transition from flavor of the week to a “regular” candidate needing to flesh out his proposals and stand out from the rest of the field. I’m sure that’s part of what we’re seeing, but this week Jack Shafer, writing at Politico,...

    When Democrat pediatrician Ralph Northam decided to run for the governor of Virginia in 2017, he wasn’t going to be alone: Planned Parenthood pledged to accompany him on his journey. “It’s really clear that Virginians want and need a fierce champion like Dr. Northam to stand up for them and to stand up for women’s health,” Jennifer Allen, chief executive of Planned Parenthood Virginia PAC and Planned Parenthood Advocates of Virginia, noted as she announced that abortion supporters would spend up to $3 million to elect Northam, who also served in the U.S. Army Medical Corps, The Washington Post reported...
