Biden/Harris signs in my neighborhood.

I have 2 different neighbors that keep adding to their Biden/Harris support signs in their yard. I'm sharing the images for my DU family.





This 1st house has other Biden/Harris banners displayed on the other front half of the house. I decided not to share that section of the house since the actual number address would be visible. I was out for a walk and let them know that I appreciated their signs. They said thank you and to make sure that I vote. I told them that I always vote straight Democratic.










Here is the 2nd house that had these 2 lovely signs.



As I was walking by today, they recently added this gem.




This is encouraging for Niagara County. As far as Presidential elections are concerned, my area is heavily Democratic with the exception for the 1980 and 2016 Presidential elections.




GOTV.

Tammy Duckworth and her Notorious RBG doll.

As the news unfolded that DFT called our military losers and suckers, Tammy Duckworth talked about her experience about how her crew saved her life. I snapped this photo on my phone during her interview because I was admiring her RBG doll sitting in the background.

State Senate aide resigns after racial slur video surfaces.

I changed the name of the title of the article since Robert W. Welch and his wife wasn't just berating a teenage girl and her friends, they were straight up using racial slurs towards these teenage girls, threatening them, harassing and stalking them in a car. I'm providing the link to the story below and the three links are the video links.




Here’s how the incident unfolded, according to Morano’s post:

Her 13-year-old daughter and three friends were making videos “jumping over things” as they walked to the store. As one of the kids jumped over a lawn sign, his toe caught the sign. At that point, a man and woman emerged from the house where the sign was hit and began to yell at the four juveniles, using racial slurs, threatening them and telling them they know officers in the North Tonawanda Police Department.

During the video, a man identified as Welch is heard yelling at the youths and using a racial slur. A photo of him at the scene is posted along with a photo of a woman who can also can be heard on the video yelling and shouting at the the youths. She works for North Tonawanda schools, she said on the video.

The incident continued to evolve, and at one point the adults reportedly got in their car and began to follow the youths, said Morano. That part is not caught on the video.

CNN correspondent Omar Jimenez arrested live on television.

Omar Jimenez one of CNN correspondenst was covering the Minneapolis, Minnesota riots about 5:00 this morning. Mr. Jimenez and his crew showed their press credentials right before the arrest. He has been released.














CNN reporter Omar Jimenez was arrested while covering protests in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

During a live broadcast Friday, Jimenez and his crew were arrested on air by Minnesota State Patrol after identifying themselves and showing their press credentials.

In a re-played clip, the arrest was shown on camera.

"We are live on the air at the moment. This is the four of us, we are one team. Just put us back where you want us, just let us know. Wherever you want us, just let us know," Jimenez tells a row of police officers before an officer comes behind him with handcuffs. “Do you mind telling me why I’m under arrest, sir?"

Jimenez and his crew, who were covering the protests that were prompted by the death of George Floyd, were later released and spoke about the experience.

Canadian Couple Made Over $70,000 Reselling Lysol Wipes on Amazon at Inflated Prices

Another price gouging sucking scum story. We need to remember this Amazon company name to boycott in the future. I would get a hide if I wrote what I actually think about this couple.



The couple were said to be trading on Amazon's marketplace platform under the name "Violeta & Sons trading ltd," according to the article. One listing was said to feature a CAD$20 (about $14.50) package of wipes being offered for CAD$89 (around $64.50).

Although a check of the account revealed no items listed at the time of writing, one review from Thursday remarked that the "seller cancelled my order the day before delivery only to put it back online and jack up the price."

I watched this and thought it was important enough to share, since we got fed lies today at the so called presser. I will also add to the Video and Multimedia forum.





September 8, 1900 -The Galveston Hurricane

On September 8, 1900, Galveston, Texas was hit by a hurricane that it's residents and visitors were not expecting. The estimated death toll was 8 to 12 thousand people and the residents were still finding the deceased months later after this devastating storm.




The residents who decided to stay wanted to make their city safer and came up with a 2 step plan. The plan was to build a giant concrete seawall and raise the elevation by pumping in sand from the ocean bottom. They began work on the seawall in 1902 and it was completed in 1904.

After completing the seawall, the structures were lifted before the pumping of sand began.


The pumping of sand to raise the elevation



The Weather Channel aired an educational piece last year about the hurricane and the rebuild. I'm going to include the video since it explains more in depth and it's 42 minutes long. It's worth watching if anyone has the time to watch.





This bronze sculpture is the 1900 Storm Memorial, installed in 2000 and created by David W. Moore. It's dedicated to the victims and survivors of the 1900 hurricane.






Port Nassau Webcam

There are about 16 other choices of webcams to view such as Fort Lauderdale and Key West Harbor. Unfortunately, Port Bermuda's webcam lasts for about 10 seconds before I'm disconnected from it. I tried and I couldn't find any webcams closer to Dorian.


Additionally, this would be nice to bookmark for sunny splendor days as well.

Chef Jose Andres travels to Bahamas to help with Dorian relief

Thank you, Jose Andres. Your a compassionate person and I wish that I was there to help you with your food kitchens.


Celebrity Chef José Andrés said on Sunday that he has arrived in the Bahamas and his charity has "kitchens ready to go and shelters mapped out" after Hurricane Dorian made landfall in the region earlier in the morning.

Andrés shared footage of himself in the Bahamas, where he said he was roughly 80 miles away from the eye of the Category 5 storm.

"Let's pray for everybody in Abaco and Grand Bahamas," Andrés said in the video as winds from the storm raged on in the background.

May I vent? An email that I received from a MAGAt about "tRumps popularity"

I wanted to share the following email that I received from a tRump cult member, along with my response. The reason I'm sharing this is to show just how delusional, influenced and misinformed they actually are and it helps for me to vent a bit. I have zero tolerance for this crap and I wanted to give everyone here a head's up. Yes, this person went right to my block feature. Also, I have a headache after reading this garbage.




This article is Outstanding and should be read by everyone, not just conservatives.



Trump's popularity. Written by no less an august figure than the Mayor of Livermore, CA





The mayor of Livermore California (who is a Democrat) explains Trump’s popularity and success. This is perhaps the best explanation for Trump's popularity ....



Marshall Kamena is a registered Democrat and was elected mayor of Livermore, CA.. He ran on the democratic ticket as he knew a Bay Area city would never vote for a Republican. He is as conservative as they come. He wrote the following:



Trump’s 'lack of decorum, dignity, and statesmanship' By Marshall Kamena, Mayor of Livermore, CA.



My Leftist friends (as well as many ardent #NeverTrumpers) constantly ask me if I’m not bothered by Donald Trump’s lack of decorum. They ask if I don’t think his tweets are “beneath the dignity of the office.”



Here’s my answer: We Right-thinking people have tried dignity. There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency.



We tried statesmanship. Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized “collegiality” as John McCain?



We tried propriety – has there been a nicer human being ever than Mitt Romney?

And the results were always the same. This is because, while we were playing by the rules of dignity, collegiality and propriety, the Left has been, for the past 60 years, engaged in a knife fight where the only rules are those of Saul Alinsky and the Chicago mob.



I don’t find anything “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper” about Barack Obama’s lying about what went down on the streets of Ferguson in order to ramp up racial hatreds because racial hatreds serve the Democratic Party.

I don’t see anything “dignified” in lying about the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi and imprisoning an innocent filmmaker to cover your tracks.



I don’t see anything “statesman-like” in weaponizing the IRS to be used to destroy your political opponents and any dissent.



Yes, Obama was “articulate” and “polished” but in no way was he in the least bit “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper.”

The Left has been engaged in a war against America since the rise of the Children of the ‘60s. To them, it has been an all-out war where nothing is held sacred and nothing is seen as beyond the pale.. It has been a war they’ve fought with violence, the threat of violence, demagoguery and lies from day one – the violent take-over of the universities – till today.

The problem is that, through these years, the Left has been the only side fighting this war. While the Left has been taking a knife to anyone who stands in their way, the Right has continued to act with dignity, collegiality and propriety.

With Donald Trump, this all has come to an end. Donald Trump is America ’s first wartime president in the Culture War.



During wartime, things like “dignity” and “collegiality” simply aren’t the most essential qualities one looks for in their warriors. Ulysses Grant was a drunk whose behavior in peacetime might well have seen him drummed out of the Army for conduct unbecoming.



Had Abraham Lincoln applied the peacetime rules of propriety and booted Grant, the Democrats might well still be holding their slaves today.



Lincoln rightly recognized that, “I cannot spare this man. He fights.”



General George Patton was a vulgar-talking.. In peacetime, this might have seen him stripped of rank. But, had Franklin Roosevelt applied the normal rules of decorum then, Hitler and the Socialists would barely be five decades into their thousand-year Reich.



Trump is fighting. And what’s particularly delicious is that, like Patton standing over the battlefield as his tanks obliterated Rommel’s, he’s shouting, “You magnificent bastards, I read your book!”



That is just the icing on the cake, but it’s wonderful to see that not only is Trump fighting, he’s defeating the Left using their own tactics. That book is Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals – a book so essential to the Liberals’ war against America that it is and was the playbook for the entire Obama administration and the subject of Hillary Clinton’s senior thesis.

It is a book of such pure evil, that, just as the rest of us would dedicate our book to those we most love or those to whom we are most indebted, Alinsky dedicated his book to Lucifer.



Trump’s tweets may seem rash and unconsidered but, in reality, he is doing exactly what Alinsky suggested his followers do. First, instead of going after “the fake media” — and they are so fake that they have literally gotten every single significant story of the past 60 years not just wrong, but diametrically opposed to the truth, from the Tet Offensive to Benghazi, to what really happened on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri — Trump isolated CNN.. He made it personal.

Then, just as Alinsky suggests, he employs ridicule which Alinsky described as “the most powerful weapon of all.”... Most importantly, Trump’s tweets have put CNN in an untenable and unwinnable position. ... They need to respond.

This leaves them with only two choices. They can either “go high” (as Hillary would disingenuously declare of herself and the fake news would disingenuously report as the truth) and begin to honestly and accurately report the news or they can double-down on their usual tactics and hope to defeat Trump with twice their usual hysteria and demagoguery. The problem for CNN (et al.) with the former is that, if they were to start honestly reporting the news, that would be the end of the Democratic Party they serve. It is nothing but the incessant use of fake news (read: propaganda) that keeps the Left alive.



Imagine, for example, if CNN had honestly and accurately reported then-candidate Barack Obama’s close ties to foreign terrorists (Rashid Khalidi), domestic terrorists (William Ayers & Bernardine Dohrn), the mafia (Tony Rezko) or the true evils of his spiritual mentor, Jeremiah Wright’s church.



Imagine if they had honestly and accurately conveyed the evils of the Obama administration’s weaponizing of the IRS to be used against their political opponents or his running of guns to the Mexican cartels or the truth about the murder of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and the Obama administration’s cover-up.



So, to my friends on the Left — and the #NeverTrumpers as well — do I wish we lived in a time when our president could be “collegial” and “dignified” and “proper”? Of course I do.



These aren’t those times. This is war. And it’s a war that the Left has been fighting without opposition for the past 50 years.

So, say anything you want about this president - I get it - he can be vulgar, he can be crude, he can be undignified at times. I don’t care. I can’t spare this man. He fights for America!



My response:
I debunked this claim that this was written by a Democratic Mayor named Marshall Kamena. This opinion piece was written by Evan Sayet. Link here: https://www.providencejournal.com/opinion/20170725/my-turn-evan-sayet-trump-may-be-crass-but-he-fights|


The right thing to do at this point would be to send out a correction about who the author actually is, but I know that won't happen. Please remove my email address from your contact list. Thank you.
