THIS IS A BLOG THAT TRIES TO APPEAL TO THE AVERAGE CONSERVATIVE CITIZEN AND HAS NO AGENDA OTHER THAN TELLING THE TRUTH AS WE SEE IT.
It's not the Chauvin Verdict That's the Problem, It's the Process and Environment That's the Problem!
Although I feel that Derek Chauvin was overcharged with 2nd degree murder, when 2nd degree manslaughter was the more appropriate, his fate was sealed before the trial was ever held. The “racial arsonists” were out in force from the beginning up until the trial began. Chauvin never had a chance to change the perception that he was a racist cop out to do harm to a black person. George Floyd, a drug addict and a convicted criminal, is now being put on a pedestal as a “Martyr” for the BLM cause. His death was used as an excuse for many months of racial discord, rioting, pillaging and arson around the country. Even in death he was being used for a cause to bring anarchy to many cities and towns and the eventual downfall of the United States. Both anti-police groups, ANTIFA and BLM, are card carrying Marxist/Socialists, hell bent on destruction of our democratic republic.
Does anybody really think Chauvin was going to get a fair and balanced trial in such an inflamed racial atmosphere as was in place in Minneapolis? Although the facts pointed to Chauvin using excessive force in subduing Floyd, he was depicted as a rogue cop who was out to harm a black person. Does anybody really think that Derek Chauvin got up in the morning by proclaiming how he could inflict pain on a black person? Well, that's how he was presented to a public looking for a pound of flesh. The fact that George Floyd was a drug addict, a convicted criminal with history of violence, and who was caught on that fateful day of May, 25, 2020, of trying to pass a phony $20 bill, it was very seldom mentioned in the main stream media as they almost 100% thought that Chauvin was guilty of murder, and geared their stories accordingly.
Look what occurred before the trial of Chauvin began. Besides being convicted in the press before any testimony was given, the City of Minneapolis gave the Floyd family a $26 million settlement therefore, tacitly admitting the city was responsible for Floyd's death. Even when the jury was selected and the trial was in progress, that notable rabble-rouser, Rep. Maxine Waters, was ranting and raving that the mobs should continue their havoc, and that Chauvin should be found guilty of murder. Her rhetoric was aimed at the jury that they should find him guilty or else. Or else what? In addition, the judge refused to “change the venue” from inflamed Minneapolis to another less hostile environment, and he refused to sequester the jury to have them not hearing all the anti-cop rhetoric in the media, and the preparations the town was taking to avoid another episode of carnage if the verdict wasn't the right one (murder or nothing).
I do not endorse the actions of Derek Chauvin, but I also do not endorse a trial that was conducted under the threat of violence if the court did not do what the mob demanded. The “Disciples of Chaos” are shaking down the various states and cities making the police enemy number one when they should be hailing them as the last line of defense against total chaos. Where are these so-called “civil rights groups” in those cities where minority adults and children are being killed on an increasing rate, not by policemen, but by other blacks? It is a canard of major proportions that our police forces are nests of “systemic racists”, when in many cases inner city police forces are made up of 50% or more of minorities. Are all those minority policemen “racists” also?
Citizens, get real, our republic is being internally attacked by real anti-American forces as they try to overthrow our way of life and to institute a Marxist/Socialist society, a society that has failed all over the world.
My comment to the black people of our country, don't crucify your protectors (the cops) for some rare instances of police misconduct, they are the one's who are trying to make your communities livable not the hell-holes that some of the communities have become without a viable police force. Derek Chauvin is the exception not the rule in judging all police. Without law and order, we don't have a country that our fore fathers gave us. White people, get rid of your “white guilt” and don't succumb to threats for fear of being called a “racist”. We all most work together to make our country a place where as Dr. Martin Luther King once proclaimed that, “We should judge other people on the content of their character and not on the color of their skin”.
GOD BLESS AMERICA !

Now that the loony lefty Marxists/Socialists have gotten their way by getting rid of their #1 antagonist, Donald Trump, they now have set their sights on three successful Trump supporters, trying to discredit and bring them down in the eyes of the public before they become too popular. I'm referring to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, Texas Senator Ted Cruz, and Florida Representative, Matt Gaetz. It seems like the Russian collusion and conspiracy scenario cooked up by the Democrats is “deja vu” all over again. All innuendo and nit-picking “facts” and statements taken out of context, and palpable lies put forth as the truth, are raising their ugly heads again.
Since Governor DeSantis has gotten almost universal praise for his handling of the COVID virus in his home state of Florida (except by the Democrats and their surrogates in the media), he is now in the cross-hairs of the Democrats who fear him as a credible potential Republican presidential candidate in 2024. His greatest sin, according to he lefty-loons, is his present and past support of Donald Trump. No matter what he says or does, his enemies spin his actions in a negative way, just like they did with Trump. Just recently, the CBS show, “60 Minutes” did a hit-piece on DeSantis by trying to attach him to a “play for pay” vaccine scheme with a big supermarket food chain in Florida, Publix, but omitted part of what he said that completely refuted their implication of wrong doing. Even some elected Democrats called the CBS interview a fraud and confirmed that what DeSantis initially said was purposely omitted from the story that “60 Minutes” aired.
As for Senator Ted Cruz, he is a lightening rod for Democrats who abhor his fiery rhetoric and poignant jabs at the Biden administration, especially as it pertains to the “open border” policy of the Biden administration. By leading fellow Senators to the border to see first-hand the crisis that Biden created by his incompetence in handling it, and screwing up what Trump put in place to stem the hordes of illegal aliens invading our country, they condemn him. For his actions, he has been designated as the worst U.S. Senator, who must be denigrated and vilified. He tends to inflame the Democrats to no end, but he usually out-wits them with his erudite wit and fact based rhetoric.
Finally, within the past week or so, Representative Matt Gaetz, has earned the enmity of the slowly imploding Democrats because of his take no prisoners manner of speaking and full-on support of Trump and his policies. An article that appeared in the N.Y. Times (sometimes referred to as the N.Y. Slimes), that used anonymous sources to accuse Gaetz of the sex trafficking of a 17 year old girl, is a good example of their sleazy “journalistic” operation. Of course, the “lame stream media” immediately latched unto this story, as they had a tendency to hate Rep. Gaetz with a passion, even if the N.Y. Times had lied about Republicans many times in the past. They wanted to discredit this ardent Trump supporter before he became too popular in the eyes of the public. It seems the “fake news media” outlets were just “chomping on the bit” to get something on the fiery Gaetz to tarnish his rising star in the Republican Party. The track record of the N.Y. Times in matters pertaining to Republicans is atrocious to say the least. It seems no matter how salacious and unverified the charges against a Republican is, they will print it as fact, even when later it was determined to be misinformation or an outright fabrication. However, it seems that they couldn't care less as the damage to the Republican will have already been done. Rep. Gaetz has vehemently denied all the charges against him, and as of this writing, no names have come forth to support the N.Y. Times story. Rep. Gaetz, according to our law, is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. Until then, “I SMELL A RAT” as to the authenticity of this Times story.
What this exemplifies is that the Democrats and their shills in the media will do anything to discredit their enemies. According to them, “The End Justifies the Means”. The Republicans must fight fire with fire or the lying Democrats and the compliant media will prevail to the detriment of the entire country.

The many ills our nation is facing today have been compounded by the media and persons in influential positions that affect the mood of the people, through their narratives of personal beliefs.
Judeo-Christian traditions have fallen and become victim in cancel culture, a detriment to the moral fiber of decency in today's climate. The elements that have infiltrated the Democratic Party are stoking the ashes of racism to use as a weapon against their opposition. This is all in an attempt to enhance their position of power, while not having anything constructive to offer the public.
Haven't we all known someone who was so into himself that it became quite tedious to be around that person? That being said, it brings to mind that the “Grand Master of Nursing Homes”, Andrew Cuomo, is now in deep doo-doo with his own party and the fawning news media. This pompous ass used the pandemic to promote himself as being the be-all and end-all of everything COVID virus. He even wrote a book touting how well he did fighting the virus.
Cuomo, during the first couple of months during the spread of COVID in the United States and around the world, was on T.V., almost daily, pontificating as to what he was doing to help lead the people in facing this deadly virus. He sounded real convincing and he drew accolades from mainly the people who hated President Trump, claiming that he was botching the whole virus she-bang.
Little did the public realize that this self-indulgent loudmouth from New York City (County of Queens) was screwing up royally by placing COVID patients back into nursing homes, while alternate facilities (made available by President Trump) were left mostly unused, yet available at the Jacob Javits Center and the U.S. Navy mercy ship docked in the Hudson River. The result of this outrageous decree by Cuomo, was that the virus spread violently through the nursing homes where infected patients returned, and many died as a result.
When it was determined that this decision was a catastrophe, Governor Cuomo and his minions misreported the number of nursing home deaths, claiming that only 6,000 elderly residents of nursing homes died, but as more information came to light, the total was adjusted upward of 15,000.
As word got out that Cuomo was”cooking the books”, all hell broke loose. Once the “darling” of the news media and the Democrats, Cuomo was now being called to resign or face impeachment but he refused and mocked the thought of an impeachment. Many of the victims' families, headed up by Janice Dean, Fox News meteorologist, who lost her mother and father in-law in one of those nursing homes, have brought this disaster to light. He refuses to take any responsibility for his actions, which now over 160 elected representatives have called for his resignation.
In addition to the nursing home fiasco, Cuomo has been accused by a total of 8 women (so far) of making life miserable for them by verbally bullying them and a few with personal touching against their will. So far, he has denied all accusations. This was the same Andrew Cuomo, who joined in on the attack against Judge Brett Kavanaugh who was falsely accused of sexual abuse during his appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Cuomo, in fact, chimed in on the “lynching” of Kavanaugh, when he said that Kavanaugh should take a lie detector test, but when asked if he would do the same in answer to his accusers of sexual harassment and intimidation, he refused to do so. Hypocrisy at its zenith.
Andrew Cuomo, has come across as an arrogant, New York City (Queens County) bully boy who seems to have an ill conceived ego of major proportions. I grew up not to far from where Andrew Coumo grew up in Jamaica, Queens, and I can see his type from that environment. As I said in the headline, Andrew Cuomo is a legend in his own mind.
Will Andrew Cuomo survive these scandals, or will his fellow Democrats and Republicans get a backbone and get rid of this political “cancer” that is bringing shame to the great State of New York, and to the Democrat Party, who was “holier than thou” when it came to sliming Donald Trump for the past 4 years.

Is it a Form of “Jim Crow” to Insist on Voter I.D., Shortening the Voting Period, and Purging Dead People from the Voting Rolls?
It seems whenever the Democrats can't rationally answer or comment on certain things, they play the “Race Card” or they yell “Voter Suppression”. By trying to bring sanity and integrity back into the voting process throughout the country, the Democrats yell “Racism” as if it really applies. That in and of itself is “Racism”, as they don't believe that blacks can obey the law and comply with the voting rules. That is reverse racism, plain and simple.
Is it “Jim Crow”, as President Biden proclaimed, to have people who want to vote show an I.D.? Is it “Jim Crow” to cut short the voting period so that it doesn't extend to up to a month before the normal election day of the first Tuesday of November? Is it “Jim Crow” to purge the voting rolls of deceased persons, who somehow find their way into voting come election time? Every legitimate vote should count, it doesn't have a “race” determination, it just makes voting legitimate for all, regardless of race, ethnicity, or gender.
For President Biden to use the term “Jim Crow” to the states trying to make their voting systems fair to all, is the height of hypocrisy. It was Joe Biden's party who used “Jim Crow” laws to suppress black people in slavery. It was the Democrats who supported the evil KKK who were used by the Democrats to enforce the “Jim Crow” laws, right after the Civil War. It was the Democrat Party who fostered the idea of separate but equal in our public schools. It was the Democrat Party who fought against the Civil Rights Acts of the 1960's. 80% of the Republican Party voted in favor of the Civil Rights laws, but only 60% of the Democrats, with the objecting Democrats being Sen. Robert Byrd, Sen Al Gore, Sr., Sen James Eastland, Sen. Strom Thurmond etc.
So for President Biden and the Democrats to accuse the Republicans of trying to bring back the “Jim Crow” laws is quite disingenuous to say the least. It seems whenever the Democrats don't get their way, they revert back to the same old, cry of using the “Race Card”. It would be the right thing for the Democrats to look in the mirror to see who the real racists are, and it's not the Republicans.
So using the slur word “Jim Crow” to signify that the Republicans are being the “racial” bigots and racists, is pointing the finger at the wrong people. President Biden has claimed that he wants to unify the country, however, his words and actions don't back up his rhetoric. He should stop with the “Jim Crow” analogy as that just causes more animosity among the parties and creates more grid-lock which results in zero progress.
Using race as a political tool, especially referring to blacks, is akin to what President George W. Bush said was the “Soft bigotry of low expectations” when it comes to the black population. Drop the “Jim Crow” slur President Biden, it is below the dignity of your office.
