    A heartfelt article describes the sentiment of many people and police in Seattle today:

    Polling is one method of predetermination, common sense is another. :wideyed:

    When you say you have more native blood than the people themselves; comparing todays reservations to the days of Al Capone; using names like Pocahantas; ignoring protocol to local Chiefs (Mt Rushmore) etc., well, you get the idea.

    Secret anti-Indian ad campaign

    In 2000, when New York was considering expanding Native American casinos in the Catskill Mountains, a series of TV, newspaper and radio ads popped up in the state accusing the Mohawk Indian tribe of having long criminal records and ties to the mob. The ads showed pictures of cocaine lines and syringes and asked: “Are these the new neighbors we want?”

    As far as the public knew, the ads were sponsored by a newly formed group called the Institute for Law and Safety. The group claimed that it was funded by 12,000 “grass-roots, pro-family” donors.

    But in reality, it was bankrolled by Trump’s casino company.

    The latest map I've seen shows 5 areas...an old politician I hang around with from time to time says he has seen a 6 area breakdown. I hope I am dust in the wind before any division comes to pass.

    When Biden wins, just remember you guys had a hand in this. Never held him to any standards and it's gotten so ridiculous that he's very comfortable attacking American institutions like the Post Office and admitting interfering with the election. As if his failure with Covid or a trash economy wasn't enough, this Post Office/Election Interference is just something else the Dems will use. So in the coming weeks when you see Biden's poll numbers get even better, it's this stuff plus the Kamala pick.

    Mail in voting isn't some new phenomenon, has been happening since the Civil War. The same info you need to get an absentee ballot is same info to get a mail in ballot. Election interference when looked at by even Republican Groups is actually rare, dozens to hundreds. Any lying or using junk sources to try to dispute the truth, just doesn't matter.

    The USPS had started reducing post office operating hours across several states and removing their blue letter collection boxes as Trump's hand-picked stooge at the service tries to rig the election for him.

    It's going to be a huge change. New York will be far worse off than the NY of the 70's. This time around, the dirt, chaos and crime came at a time when people realize they don't need to come into the office anymore to work. They can work from anywhere using Zoom. Restaurants, Broadway, hotels all closing up. The residents who can afford to leave are leaving. NY will be stuck with a ton of empty buildings and savages in the streets, with no tax base left. It will take decades to come back from that.

    The Plandemic plays no factor in the Democrats need to vote by mail, mail in voting was part of their narrative from the beginning, Plandemic or no Plandemic

    Took decades for the Democrats to totally destroy Detroit. Looks like they have become more efficient in New York.

    Media doing it's best to ignore all. If this was a tea party rally, it be on every network news cast during prime time.

    Journalist at corporate media fantasized about Tea Party terrorist.

    WOW...
    [​IMG]

    Los Angeles' Democrat Mayor Eric Garcetti has threatened to cut power and water from private entities that defy the city's lockdown measures, including churches.

    Mayor Garcetti blasted those who hold gatherings, where social distancing is not possible, as "irresponsible and selfish."

    Garcetti threatened to cut off power to any private entity that defied shutdown orders in March.

    Amid the COVID-19 pandemic in California, there is currently a ban on indoor religious services in 29 counties representing 80 percent of the state’s population.

    We know there is nothing democrats wont do. War gaming a constitutional crisis including civil unrest, violence, sowing distrust in federal institutions, using any crisis.

    I'd put this conspiracy right up there with teen age Brett Kavanaugh running gang rapes at local college frat parties.

    This faux crisis was created by democrats and corporate media. My Senators started promoting this hoax on social media weeks ago.

    I'd like to think JB is just having fun with this but these people are trying encouraging people to harass republicans and cause violence.
