    Dan Bongino diagnosed with Cancer.

    He thought he was free after chemo, but they found three nodules on his lungs.

    He just announced on his show said still feels weird saying it, hope this guy makes it;

    Talking like a guy with nothing to lose;
    yet still keeps the class. He says
    “For all you medical Pros out there( they dont know what they are and it’s really weird...”

    Results expected back in a week.
    Stay Strong,now definitely follow his show
    (at least this week ; (

    He says maybe not cancer... “Covid?” “Corona
    Dam. Hope it’s the latter; I like the guy;
    One of the good ones

    Fair enough. It seems like a reasonable health protocol during a pandemic. If you don't like it, you can choose not to cross the border.

    think hate him is just projection;
    But he’s certainly not conservative, by any stretch of the imagination.

    Close ally of Marjorie Taylor Greene among those in Capitol mob

    https://www.erienewsnow.com/story/4...orie-taylor-greene-among-those-in-capitol-mob

    In fact, Anthony Aguero, a conservative livestreamer, activist and associate of Greene, said on video following the January 6 assault on the Capitol that he had been among those who entered and attacked those who falsely claimed it was done by "Antifa."

    "We were all there. It was not Antifa and it was not BLM. It was Trump supporters that did that yesterday. I'm the first to admit it, being one myself," said Aguero in a video posted on January 7.

    "I walked amongst all those people," he added, later defending entering the Capitol.

    Need I educate you on the origin of your own Constitution?

    The petition for the Declaration of Independence reads as follows:

    https://constitutionus.com/original-documents/declaration-of-independence-2/

    Read it VERY carefully.

    "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

    Most of America and the world today have no idea that America’s Constitutional right to keep and bear arms was in part to protect owners from a slave uprising and to allow one the right to kill Native Americans. :sneaky:

    A more modern out-take on gun ownership in America (of course you are free to listen or to ignore, or just cue to 14:25...):

    The Hidden History of Guns and the Second Amendment

    Furthermore:

    The Constitution states that no government-funded project for the armed forces can last more than two years, and that such projects are pretty well accepted to be unconstitutional according to the Framers' intent.

    The Founding Fathers feared a standing army, and for good reason. While its ideal purpose is to create peace, we do not live in a world of ideals. The actual effects are to lower the costs of war to those who would have it and to create a special-interest group of bureaucrats and military personnel who have a vested interest in advancing the war machine. As long as the army stands, peace is unlikely to be achieved or long-lasting.

    Of course there are ramifications to the Constitutional ammendments and certain conflicts had to be resolved:

    IMO, you're politicizing the situation just like the media. Can't you find a better argument?

    In fact, De Santis was criticized by both Republican and Democratic officials.

    The back story: Florida's Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis has threatened to move a pop-up vaccination clinic after he was confronted with allegations of political favoritism and preference for the wealthy.

    The pop-up vaccination site is serving residents of Lakewood Ranch, a planned community in Southwest Florida with family ties to Liz and Dick Uihlein. The couple’s list of political contributions includes $900,000 Dick Uihlein gave to DeSantis’ political committee in 2018 and 2019.

    Manatee County Commissioner Misty Servia, a Republican, criticized the selection of these two areas at a Board of County Commissioners work session on Tuesday, "You're taking the Whitest demographic, the richest demographic in Manatee County and putting them ahead of everyone else," Servia said. "The optics are bad - very bad - I'm really disappointed," she added.

    Look at this guy's wit and quickness. Now imagine Biden or Harris trying to be tough negotiators with him. Like children.
