Must be a different Maguire. You see, OUR Maguire is a CONSERVATIVE, and he seems to be a bit of a thinker. So naturally this Maguires Trump derangement and disrespect being so foolish, couldn't be OUR Maguire.

Washington, D.C. – Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer issued this statement after President Trump tear-gassed peaceful protestors following a press conference in which he ordered troops to “dominate the streets”:

“Across our country, Americans are protesting for an end to the pattern of racial injustice and brutality we saw most recently in the murder of George Floyd.

“Yet, at a time when our country cries out for unification, this President is ripping it apart. Tear-gassing peaceful protestors without provocation just so that the President could pose for photos outside a church dishonors every value that faith teaches us.

“We call upon the President, law enforcement and all entrusted with responsibility to respect the dignity and rights of all Americans. Together, we must insist on the truth that America must do much more to live up to its promise: the promise of liberty and justice for all, which so many have sacrificed for – from Dr. King to John Lewis to peaceful protestors on the streets today.

“At this challenging time, our nation needs real leadership. The President’s continued fanning of the flames of discord, bigotry and violence is cowardly, weak and dangerous.”

Btw, it wasn't tear gas.

Well, that's a relief.

I've told this story before.

My BF sat next to JAXOFF on a flight from Denver to Chicago. Jackson would not acknowledge my pal, who is not loud in any way. Trying to make a little chit chat, Jackson completely ignored him.

My friend asked how Jaxoff's new daughter was.

Jackson requested a seat change. My friend smiled at him.

My friend asked how Jaxoff's new daughter was.

One of the funniest moments of Slick's defilement of the White House was, after his lies about Monica were revealed as such, Shakedown was going to counsel the pervert to do something or other to pretend to feel bad about everything but being caught. Almost immediately after that, Shakedown's love child was revealed. He then vowed to go in seclusion away from the limelight. I don't think it lasted a week.

Trump: carries the "terrible swift sword."

The response of our enemies is chaos.

He, like us, has a choice to make every morning, to set the course of his day: will it be Love; or, will it be fear?

Home and caught up, after unloading the groceries.

I am going to get some stuff done around here and eat lunch.

Twitter has a HUGE number of bots in the comments. Here is the theme:

Trump ran as a law and order candidate and he was absent all weekend while the violence escalated so he's lost my vote.

When all of the tweets like this have under 100 followers (many under 25) it's a good bet they are being run by a bot-generator, probably from China.

It's also a good bet that if he had sent troops in right away, the impeachment crap would have started again and we would have had to listen to a bunch of testimony plus listen to Adam Schiff again. No thank you.

Tucker can get mad at Jared Kushner, but I fail to see how Kushner has done anything to cause the riots. The people given early release were of two types:

1. Those who had gone through counseling and vocational education so that they had a chance to succeed,and

2. Those who had been given excessive sentences in that "reform" law backed by Bill Clinton in order to make him look tough on crime when he was up for re-election.

Kushner was far more instrumental in helping with Trump's victory than most realize, unless they read the book I read ("Inside the Trump White House") and which has actual interviews with Jared Kushner, as well as Ivanka and several with President Trump.

Threadkiller

Here is the Tucker link again:

https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/tucker-carlson-nation-flames-leaders-dithered

Early on I pegged Kushner as trouble. One of my loon sites was first to market on his use of Jamie Gorelick. When Bannon was sacked because he apparently told the book guy(Wolfe?) that he took issue with how Kushner and Co handled certain aspects of the campaign, I labeled the group as “The First Rugrats.”

Bannon was ripped to shreds by the “Trump is never wrong” contingent. And here we are.

Threadkiller,

1. How do you KNOW that Kushner was responsible for Trump's restraint over the weekend?

2. He was down at the space launch on Saturday.

3. He also gave a speech on China.

4. If I remember correctly, Congress changed the way the Guard is called up right before Obama left.

5. Bannon isn't my favorite, either.

Been away for the past 14 months, and I have truly missed being part of the JOM family conversation.

Hope that all is well with everyone, and that y'all are safely distanced from the latest "protestors" working with those Panty-fa types, trying to destroy America.

Hard to stomach listening to Joey "Plugs" Biden's latest screed against Pres. Trump - no criticism of rioting and violence, or failed political leadership. Not even a call for people to come together to call for peace. Just blaming everything on Pres. Trump, and calling for more national "dialogues" and democrat hearings, of course.

Take care, and be safe out there (h/t Steven Bochco's HSB and Michael Conrad).

Bannon was ripped to shreds by the “Trump is never wrong” contingent.

He didn't endear himself to the "Trump isn't half bad, on a good day" contingent when he said that Trump is "not the billionaire he said he was, just another scumbag".

henry, re: rural

The Mrs. is worried that all it takes is one wacko to set off peaceful demonstrations, particularly when fanned by MSM opinion.

She doesn't want a wacko to take it out on the newspaper.

Neither do I. I'm not at the newspaper every day now. Back then I was always wary and protective of our staff.

-- set off what began as peaceful demonstrations --

That said, our community has excellent relations with the police who live within the district. Our local "demonstration" was in front of the justice building and the Deputy chief did an excellent job working with the people, even inviting them inside if they had needs.

The bricks gif is funny. However, I would not underestimate Antifa. So far, Antifa has done enough in the residential areas to make guilty white libs nervous, but not enough so that Trump, and guvs and mayors who understand how the world works, will have significant support to crush Antifa. From its perspective, Antifa, with the help of oligarch media, hustlers from all races and ethnic groups, guilty white libs, clueless public officials, and public officials who support anarchy, is making inroads on America.

It's no longer a question of whether we are in a civil war. We are in one, and it's pretty uncivil.

SWC;

Let me say this -- echoing my friend Undercover Huber -- DOJ brought out the BIG GUNS and unloaded on Sullivan. The DOJ brief is a powerhouse argument that lays waste to the effort by a district court judge to usurp Exec. Authority.
Let me add--when you see the stupid argument made on the left that no career prosecutors are signing the DOJ papers, tell them the signature on the Gov't brief is from Jocelyn Ballentine who was one of the two prosecutors on the Flynn case with Van Grack, and is an AUSA in DC.
But she was never a member of the SCO so she isn't invested in validating their witch hunt pursuit of Flynn for the sole purpose of getting him to cooperate against Trump.

This was posted on my little town's Facebook page today. So nice to read this :

I left home a little earlier than usual today to take my fiance to Fayetteville to drop him off before going to work. As we drove thru town and climbed the hill past the Ford place, I noticed an older, pale-skinned gentleman walking north on the sidewalk. He wore a Veterans cap and walked with a cane. If I guessed his age by his stature and his clothing, I’d say WWII Veteran, maybe Korea. From the looks of it, he does this often and can probably outwalk me. As we neared the top of the hill, a younger, darker-skinned gentleman that was out for a run approached. With everything going on, I observed them with anticipation to see what their greeting to each other would be. Would they wave? Would they nod? Would they ignore each other? None of those happened. That young man that was out for a run slowed quite a bit, dipped his head slightly, snapped a perfect salute, flashed an enormous smile, then continued on his run. I was so touched by that, that I didn’t look to see the other man's reaction. I was so choked up I couldn’t tell my fiance the details of what I’d seen for a moment. I wonder how many times they cross paths like this. Perhaps every day? Perhaps this was their first time meeting? In the midst of such chaos and pain, it gave me hope and reminded me that good people still respect each other. Love will prevail.

I remember the IRS auditing my mother when I was a kid. Here's a woman who was too proud for welfare and with a deadbeat husband, worked 60-70 hours a week waiting tables for 27 cents an hour and tips. They made life hell for her trying to make her prove she made those tips.
