Trump In Traverse City

Some photos from Traverse City November 02, 2020.

Donald Trump is a machine.

Not only is HE a machine, they clearly have a machine working full time to manage the logistics of the Dozens of last rallies.  Managing 10s of thousands of rally goers and getting the president in and out of each event is mind boggling.

The only possible trouble his team might have had is evidenced by the President joking with the tech crew in Wisconsin as I type this. His management skills, or those of whomever he chooses are clearly superior.  Especially when one considers getting a 70+ year old guy to each of said evens in one piece, and having him remain coherent and understandable.

Incredible.

I want to give a shout out to the RBSN folks for a second.  (See pic at right)  These guys have made it possible to watch most of the Trump rallies out of sheer tenacity and showing up.  They have overcome technical issues and done what NONE of the other networks were willing to do; namely bringing the immensely popular president to those with an internet connection when ‘regular’ media refused.  God bless em for being able to keep up with Trump.

And Trump’s stamina notwithstanding, the throngs of supporters seemed to make all necessary efforts to attend the rush of gatherings scheduled iin the last days of the 2020 election cycle.   All these things were attended ‘bigly.’

There Are No Coincidences

Conspiracies theories are no longer theories when facts bear them out.

I cannot imagine the level of work it took to produce this video.

Clearly it threatens someone. Efforts to dissuade people from taking it seriously have been non stop since it was announced. Effort to outright ban it are next.

Already, Twitter warns users that they might get a virus from watching it, FB deletes when they find it, Google gives you some amazingly synchronized results when searching for it, and the maker’s site has been DDOS attacked non stop since it was released.

It is one and a quarter hour long.   For those of you who know how, please download, share, and keep it alive. The makers grant a full license to distribute freely.

Why democrats are suddenly pushing so HARD for mandatory mask “laws”.

Hint: It has NOTHING to do with YOUR health.

While speaking at a rally in Denver to “Back the Blue”…well, I’ll just let the video in the links speak for itself.

You little snake.

When you’re the president of the Michigan SBA, wouldn’t it stand to reason that, I don’t know, YOU ACTUALLY STAND UP FOR THE MEMBERS YOU REPRESENT?

I don’t even own a business, but I do depend upon someone who does for my paycheck. I also don’t need someone to punch their lights out because they are compelled to follow some nonsensical “order”.

What has got me be cheesed off, other than the fact that we don’t have Waffle Houses here in Michigan?

If you want a job done right…

Gosh!

Whatever shall our glorious leader do?

She’s goes off the reservation and issues even more illegal and unconstitutional “orders” for her loyal subjects to obey without question.

So, what does she do when no one is following her “orders” (at least here in Macomb, anyways)?

Succumbing to fear porn (or how to utterly destroy Michigan’s economy in one easy step).

If you’re like me, you were probably looking forward towards traveling around our state with family & friends over the spring and summer to enjoy the amenities that it has to offer. Maintaining traditions like those are one of the things that I had enjoyed about living in our state.

That was how things used to be.

Welcome to the “new normal”.

Happy Independence Day

The right tone, the right time.

Trump’s speech last night was just was this country needed.

All of what is going on can be stopped in just a few short minutes if we want to stop it. Riots, damage, and even the dreaded Chinese Flu, Covid-19.  Below are some of my thoughts, and below the fold, a great message by our president..

Covid deaths and high mortality were exacerbated by our governor and others putting recovering folks in with the most vulnerable to the disease.  We knew by the first week in March that the older population was a high risk group.  There is NO excuse.  Oh, and BTW, Hydroxychloroquine works!

BLM? Antifa? Seattle provided one of the greatest lessons with it’s Chaz nonsense.  The Mayor allowed the kids to play ‘country,’ even tolerating two deaths during their playtime, and ruining millions of dollars in local businesses and property.  It was cleared up in 30 minutes the day after those kids wanted to play ‘invading nation’ at the Mayor’s house.

Michigan United for Liberty – “Sunday Funday” Cancellation

From my inbox (For those who are en route or considering attending):

We will not be associated with political terrorism in any manner.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

Michigan United For Liberty, a grassroots organization of over 9,000 members in Michigan, has canceled its Michiganders’ Marketplace “Sunday Funday” freedom celebration at the Michigan Capitol, which had been scheduled for 1pm on Sunday the 31st.

The decision was immediately made when the group was informed that another group of demonstrators plans to descend on the Capitol that same day, ostensibly to protest the killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin.

Despite Chauvin’s immediate firing, subsequent arrest, and the President announcing a Justice Department investigation into the incident, rioters in Minneapolis robbed and burned innocent businesses to the ground, overran a police precinct, assaulted officers, and committed other acts of senseless violence.

Riots have broken out in numerous other major U.S. cities.

“We will not allow our message of peaceful, law-abiding, positive resistance to be conflated with the violent and unlawful actions of unrelated groups, and we cannot ask our members and supporters to put themselves in harm’s way,” said MUFL spokesman Adam de Angeli. “We will not be associated with political terrorism in any manner.”

While Michigan United For Liberty acknowledges the seriousness of the issue of police brutality, the group is committed to – and must remain focused on – ending Governor Whitmer’s unconstitutional lockdown orders that are destroying the lives and livelihoods of Michiganders with every passing day. Regrettably, the organization sees no possibility of its positive message being clearly conveyed with another protest happening at the same place and time.

Instead, Michigan United For Liberty encourages its members carry out the spirit of the scheduled event – opposing and defying the governor’s unconstitutional lockdown orders – on Sunday by going to church, getting together with friends, and being productive members of society.

“Our movement honors the tradition of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who understood that only through non-violence can we achieve justice,” de Angeli continued. “We had hoped to send that message once again with an upbeat freedom celebration on Sunday afternoon, but given the circumstances, it’s clearly better that we simply move forward, roll out our legislative program and grassroots leadership program, and steer clear of this danger.

“Our movement is of creators – workers, builders, artists, doctors, entrepreneurs – united against the governor’s destructive orders. The risk of getting mixed up with potentially violent protesters over a separate issue is just not worth it.”

And WE are considered the dangerous ones?

All I’ve got to say is, “WOW! What a difference 48-hours makes.”

Rather than waste my time focusing on a bunch of community agitators this weekend, I spent most of it focusing on the NASA feeds watching the SpaceX Launch yesterday.

Little did I realize how quickly an arrest over someone using fake ID (and apparently his unwillingness to follow basic commands) quickly spiraled into a series of riots which not only burned a large chunks of Minneapolis to the ground, but spread to a number of other cities across America, including several here in Michigan, resulting in at least one death (so far) and an as-yet to be determined dollar amount of property damage.

Which begs a rather obvious question regarding perceptions and politics?

{And exactly what they might be you may ask yourself? You know the drill.}
