Trump Tweet: Street Painting on 5th Ave 'Black Lives Matter' is a "Symbol of Hate"

Screw you, Trump. See you in November.

NYC is cutting Police $’s by ONE BILLION DOLLARS, and yet the @NYCMayor is going to paint a big, expensive, yellow Black Lives Matter sign on Fifth Avenue, denigrating this luxury Avenue. This will further antagonize New York’s Finest, who LOVE New York & vividly remember the....horrible BLM chant, “Pigs In A Blanket, Fry ‘Em Like Bacon”.
Maybe our GREAT Police, who have been neutralized and scorned by a mayor who hates & disrespects them, won’t let this symbol of hate be affixed to New York’s greatest street. Spend this money fighting crime instead!

"Here are his last words:

“I can’t breathe.
I have my ID right here. My name is Elijah McClain.
That’s my house. I was just going home.
I’m an introvert. I’m just different. That’s all.
I’m so sorry.
I have no gun. I don’t do that stuff. I don’t do any fighting."

"Did you know that Elijah McClain played violin for kittens in an animal shelter so they wouldn’t be lonely while awaiting the kindness of an adoptive family?"

Santa Cruz ends beach closure because 'people are not willing to be governed anymore'

I live south of the city of Santa Cruz overlooking the beach and have seen the park rangers and sheriffs try to warn people off the beaches and they do their best but are outnumbered.


SANTA CRUZ, Calif. (KGO) -- Beaches in Santa Cruz County will reopen starting at midnight Thursday night, even as the county's coronavirus continue to rise.

"We had hoped to continue the beach closure until after Fourth of July weekend, but it's become impossible for law enforcement to continue to enforce that closure," said Santa Cruz County health officer Dr. Gail Newel. "People are not willing to be governed anymore in that regard."

Beaches have been closed to sunbathers and picnickers for weeks in Santa Cruz, with a "keep it moving" policy to discourage congregating. That will no longer be the case starting Friday morning.

Starting July 6, the county's shelter-in-place order will expire, bringing Santa Cruz County fully in line with the state's reopening timeline.

WILD CONGRESS MOMENT: Rep. Louie Gohmert refuses to stop banging on desk as Donald Ayer goes over time limit.

Reps. Nadler & Johnson fail to get Gohmert to stop. Johnson asks if sergeant-at-arms could be brought in.

Rep. Doug Collins jumps in, insults Nadler.

Woman forcibly removed by Tulsa PD from Trump Rally for wearing "I can't breathe" Tee Shirt

She had a ticket and everything but wasn't cheerful enough. I believe it was outside the venue proper.

Funny, Tulsa relaxed the curfew to permit Trump supporters but wouldn't let her sit solemnly on the sidewalk this morning.

Scroll down through this article for more detail about her.
