45 missing teens in Cleveland in May and crickets

https://www.tiktok.com/t/ZPR7LMhA1/

45 teenagers in Cleveland have vanished—one by one —between May 2 and May 22 of 2023.

There has not been a peep from the media.

Roe Conn is a sheriff's deputy??!!!!

I’m shocked.

PBS just featured a segment featuring Roe Conn — former RW ABC/WLS radio host and ABC TV local guest. An official Cook County sheriffs deputy since 2021 Conn’s worth $196 million but apparently he wants to play “police”. Google says he is Director of the sheriffs department under elected sheriff Tom Dart.

He’s is right wing as they come — Chicago’s equivalent of Sean Hannity. He’s very eloquent and fast talking and seemingly knowledgeable but he’s sexist and racist and Republican.

Him as part of the sheriffs department patrolling minority neighborhoods gives me nightmares.

Boebert is either already a grandma or very close

https://www.salon.com/2023/03/09/lauren-boebert-trashes-ed--then-announces-teen-son-is-making-her-a-36-year-old-grandmother/

It was around March 9 that she announced that her 17 y/o had impregnated a 15 y/o.

I suspect her antics are a deflection.

When it comes to Republicans my rule of thumb is the more story-grabbing their behavior, the more they are covering up.

I went to a gender neutral shared bathroom, and for the first time last night

At a play, all of the bathrooms were gender neutral. There were regular metal stalls with locking doors, no urinals. It was “interesting” washing hands next to a male in the bathroom.

That is all.

If you haven't you should REALLY listen to Danny Collins

On IG he’s @Confessions of a Convict


He’s a TFG convert and his posts are powerful and educational.

Here’s a recent one: https://www.tiktok.com/t/ZT82bgE7Y/

He talks about how he believed listening to TFG, that white men were under attack. He cheered on January 6-ers, denounced Ilhan Omar and joined white nationalist prison gangs and his many posts tell why he no longer thinks that way. Check him out.

He's gonna "stand down and stand back for 22 years!"



Just had to share this hilarious ‘innanet’ comment I just read about proud “boy” terrorist Enrique Tarrio’s prison sentence.

Covid Again ... And Again ...

Last June I contracted Covid after a road trip. It was very mild. I got another booster vax this May before a July road trip. Still, I self tested positive for Covid last Friday.

After briefly talking to my sister last Friday, hearing that we both had “cold” symptoms, I pulled out an at-home test kit. It was positive. I’ve been quarantining since. When I called my sister back and told her the result and suggested that she also test... Crickets. Which brings me to my point: people are just self diagnosing their “summer colds” that I suspect many are actually Covid--they’re variant manufacturers. They don’t want to know or they don’t care.

The friend who I think I got it from said hot weather was why she felt extremely run down after she returned from a cruise Monday August 21. There was excessive heat over 100 degrees in both the Bahamas where she had gone and Chicago. We had tickets to a play Friday 8/25. She was very low energy. A mutual friend from Colorado went too and, though she wasn’t sick, I was in a closed car cabin with two people who had been in crowded airports and a ship. Of course I was also in a crowded theater for the play which could very well be the possible culprit.

Fast forward to Tuesday, August 29th. I started to feel VERY slight chills. When I opened the refrigerator once, even the air blast gave me chills. I turned off the AC thinking it was over cooling. Wednesday, I felt very slight scratchiness in the throat. My temperature was 99.4 but I felt okay. Thursday/Friday through yesterday/Sunday, the waterworks started: VERY runny eyes, VERY runny, congested nose so bad I could barely inhale. Also a cough that was frequent yesterday has eased today and but I have a slight headache. Today, I haven’t been able to taste or smell. The runnies stopped, but my mouth was extremely, unusually dry. I find that moving around and staying active eased the nasal congestion. I drank tons of water, my nose unstopped, I can smell slightly and the dry mouth went away almost immediately. Temperature 98.3. Not being able to breathe made me think about the early pandemic and all the people comatized laying motionless on vents. I remember reading during the pandemic that doctors were starting to move patients around more instead of letting them lay still. I can see why.

I just talked with the friend who was sick that I believe could’ve given it to me. I made sure to tell her that I have Covid because it seems like people don’t want to admit it--either because there’s a stigma or because they don’t want to quarantine. I mentioned that numerous friends and family say they have colds but might have Covid, and that the failure to test is why variants keep morphing infecting us. She said people are going to get sick and die anyway; that nobody else around her got sick; that her granddaughters just got vaxxed for school; that infectious diseases like colds and the flu have been around for ages ... that I could have caught it anywhere. Her points are valid but the problem is that she doesn’t even consider that SHE is part of the “anywhere” that might have been infectious. At this point, ...

*sigh*

Covid is here and won’t be leaving soon. It’s almost useless to follow the protocols. However, I do take one positive away. I look forward to immunity for the next couple of months after this current bout subsides.

Be safe out there!

Vivek's smarmy PBS interview

Over a week ago I happened to leave the PBS channel on only to hear a jaw dropping “interview” by RW newz reader and relative of Herbert Hoover, Margaret Hoover with Ramaswamy. Republicans like Vivek keep proving that they are anti-democracy. What’s worse is that PBS seems to be on board with their agenda too.

https://www.pbs.org/wnet/firing-line/video/vivek-ramaswamy-s/


On eliminating the Department of Education, FBI, and IRS…
… “I will not promise you to reform those agencies. We will shut them down!”


“… It will take an outsider who has executive experience, who’s been a successful CEO…… with a deep understanding of the Constitution … of the laws that actually empower a US president to shut down the administrative state and the federal bureaucracy that gets in the way of prosperity and liberty in this country. … I bring that combination to the table.”


“Trump was actually a very good president, but he fell short of the level that I would want to see us go to … he fell short …. We didn’t solve the border crisis….I would use the US military to secure the southern border.”


“Take the Department of Education. He put a good person on top of it, Betsy DeVos. I believe an agency like that is not subject to reform... I would shut down the US Department of Education. …Trump did not go far enough … that’s a big part of why I’m in this race.”


“I would pardon him [Trump] … his behaviors did not obviously constitute a legal violation, even as stated in those indictments…I think it will set an awful national precedent for us to become a country in which the ruling party, whoever it is, uses police power to indict its political rivals. That is the stuff of banana republics.”


“We need a revival of the American Revolution…. Ideals like self-governance over aristocracy. The idea that we the people, sort out our differences through free speech and open debate in the public square without elite interference. The ideal that it’s not in the back of palace halls or three-letter government agencies that we decide the right answers to questions from climate change to racial injustice, but that the citizens do it in a constitutional republic. And we have lost that.”


“Every young kid who graduates from high school should be able to pass the same civics test that every immigrant has to pass in order to become a citizen... At the age of 18, let’s attach civic duties to civic privileges…either knowing something about the country—the exact same things an immigrant has to know—or else serve the country in some minimal way: first responder or the military.”


Part of reaching young people isn’t just pandering by telling them what in the short term they want to hear, satisfying their moral hunger by saying– you know what the left says, ‘go to Ben & Jerry’s and order a cup of ice cream with some social justice sprinkles on the side.’ No. That’s not how we satisfy the hunger for purpose and meaning.


“I think the revival of actual civic duty is a big part of how we feed that hunger for purpose. Citizenship means something to me. And if we make it mean something to young Americans, they’ll be much less drawn to secular cults from wokeism to climate-ism than they are today, because they actually believe that the fact that they’re a citizen of the United States of America actually means something to them.”

Felons can run for President but not vote for one.

The forefathers’ foresight was limited.

As much as I would hate a Constitutional convention, issues like this beg for resolution.

Imagine the nightmare scenario of an election where you-know-who could not even vote for himself as a convicted felon.
