Politics are a thing

Disgusting eulogy by Obama; never let a crisis go to waste.

Hypocrisy, thy name is democrat.

The Wizard July 31, 2020 at 9:06 PM

I agree

Gittyup July 31, 2020 at 9:17 PM

It was disgraceful, but what might you expect from one of the most disgraced Presidents in US history. Obama’s legacy has been obliterated, and rightfully so. We can only hope Durham’s findings will silence him once and for all.

Joe F July 31, 2020 at 10:01 PM

At least he showed up to honor a great American hero.

The Fearless Spectator July 31, 2020 at 10:07 PM

I’d expect Reverend Al Sharpton to hijack a funeral. That’s a new low for Obama. The Jeremiah Wright influence creeps out….

The Wizard August 1, 2020 at 10:07 AM

Joe F……A least Trump is not a hypocrite.Obama was disgusting by not paying proper homage to John Lewis. It was just a hate speech to cause further race division…Something he’s good at….I must say.

Hanne Jeppesen July 31, 2020 at 9:19 PM

And Trump didn’t even have the class to say anything complementary about John Lewis. Obama did not mention anyone by name. Even George Bush gave a nice eulogy for John Lewis, didn’t like many of Bush’s policies, but as an ex president he has behaved with class and dignity. I commend him for that.

Look at it August 1, 2020 at 12:25 AM

Remember when John Lewis didn’t have the CLASS to attend Trump’s inauguration?

Justifiable languor August 1, 2020 at 7:10 AM

Lewis became anti semantic (racist) when he met Obama.
“President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden’s tenure leading the United States was one of the worst times for building ties with Israel and American Jews.

Our “friend,” John Lewis forgot what he wrote only a few years earlier. He supported the Iran Nuclear Deal. He did not attend the 2015 speech on the floor of Congress when Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke. He never spoke out against the growing anti-Israel hate on college campuses and in public schools.”
From Hero to Hater, by Cindy Grosz.

Brandi August 1, 2020 at 4:30 PM

You commend Bush for his “class & dignity” which is more than John Lewis did when he did NOT attend George’s 2001 inauguration.

Obama DID mention someone by name when talking about racism he refereed to George Wallace… a well known racist DEMOCRAT, who was Governor of Alabama…. I guess Barrack-O forgot which team he was on.

Even though Representative Karen Bass, Democrat of California, urged the president to not comment at all, Trump ignored her idiotic request.

After Trump issued a proclamation ordering flags be flown at half-staff, he did have something nice to say about John Lewis:

“Saddened to hear the news of civil rights hero John Lewis passing, Melania and I send our prayers to him and his family.”

BTW – I should note than John Lewis at one time claimed Trump’s inauguration was the only one he ever skipped… there is proof to the contrary that he did NOT attend the inauguration in 2001.

Fred P. August 1, 2020 at 8:47 PM

Remember when a handful of democrats didn’t attend Trump’s inauguration?

Pesky facts….

Antler July 31, 2020 at 9:36 PM

For the person who last week was scoffing at wearing masks and saying he couldn’t find any:

During the past three days I have seen plenty of masks for sale at Costco, Ace Hardware, and Staples. Yes, they are expensive, but not nearly as expensive as a funeral for a family member would be!

Hanne Jeppesen August 1, 2020 at 12:27 AM

Masks are no longer hard to find, almost any pharmacy CVS, Dollar store has them. No, they are not expensive, CVS charges $1.99 for one. I bought a few at the Dollar Store, I think it was, but they were not comfortable. Anyway I have enough, I ordered some from Amazon, but right now too hot. Since I work at Macy’s they supplied us with 4 black, washable masks, still a little hot, but the loop around your ear adjustable. Now Macy’s is giving out the light blue ones that most wear, they are not as hot as the black ones, either way, I find wearing any mask for about 7-8 hours a day, makes me very thirsty, but I do it because it makes sense. When I get home from work I fix myself a big glass of ice tea with lemon, then later have my white wine to relax (Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc).

Sam August 1, 2020 at 8:28 AM

You do it because you have to. If you didn’t wear a mask you would get fired. It’s that simple. The state has forced your employer to act under threat of government force. Make no mistake, you have justified the use of force by the state, and have fully submitted. To the point you are defending your cowardice by promoting masks when the science doesn’t even work. Try and think about more than just yourself for once.

Hittyup August 2, 2020 at 10:55 PM

Glad all of you have disposable income, but it is appalling how little understanding you have of what its like for many who are out if work, and have been for months, facing eviction, or now months behind on car, or worse, mortgage payments. At $1.99 for one mask? You are only supposed to wear a mask 10 hours at the most, so maybe one per day is needed. You’re looking at $1.99 per day if it is disposable. Maybe $1.99 x 3 or 4 changes per week if it’s washable and reusable. Making minimum wage or part time it’s a big added expense if your employer doesn’t provide them..

PO'd July 31, 2020 at 10:19 PM

Amazing to me how BLM has permeated mainstream institutions to get it’s way. “Mural” painting at the county courthouse here (as well as any place that they deem proper). Pro sports leagues adopting their demands on their fields/courts-yes I understand sports have many black players. Nobody wants to become their focus in determining whether someone is racist.
Apparently, very effective so far.

The real truth behind the movement from the beginning is a desire to use Marxist political theory-Alicia Garza said on a video widely seen(2015) that they are trained in Marxist tactics. They are muscling any institution that doesn’t conform. They are controlling the language-can’t say “all lives matter” (as we know is true), or you are a racist. Pushing statues of Lincoln and Grant over, occupation of Gov’t buildings and injuring Police
by any means necessary. Organized mob mentality with co-operating
mayors in left wing cities (Seattle, Portland, NYC etc.) and the movement to de-fund Police agencies. Making a martyr out of Michael Brown in Ferguson after he tried to take the service revolver of a policeman in the patrol car. The phrase “hands up, don’t shoot” was a lie-Brown never said it. This was the conclusion of Eric Holder’s DOJ. There still using it!

Even Dr Fauci got caught in the middle during questioning by Rep Jim Jordan during a hearing today. The good doctor wouldn’t comment about riot/protests being dangerous to health by not being required to have social spacing (self policing is probabyt they only way), all other institution must practice those policies.

Yeah, there are bad cops-we witnessed a lynching in Minneapolis. A lynching that didn’t need a noose and a tree.He needs to go down, no doubt.But to project that to all PDs all over the country, and to claim racism is systemic universally is a real stretch, but it certainly fits the script.

This Orwellian nightmare isn’t going away any time soon, as they might come to your town as they did to mine.

greg August 1, 2020 at 8:02 AM

…and yet you’re here to tell the tale.

Truly sounds like a dangerous org.

Brandi August 1, 2020 at 4:58 PM

Greg…. if you’d actually like a visit try using your real name & address.

Gittyup July 31, 2020 at 10:37 PM

@Silva From last week, I saw the video of Pelosi visiting Chinatown in San Francisco, and heard her say to come on down and visit Chinatown because it was perfectly safe. There were no masks and definitely no social distancing in the video. And, she stressed several times it was safe. I really don’t need Trump’s interpretation of it — I saw it for myself. Pelosi was initially as blasé about some little virus thing going around as anybody possibly could be.

Justifiable languor August 1, 2020 at 7:32 AM

I don’t listen to anyone who intentionally garbles their speech. Most notably Pelosi and Biden. You could argue they are politicking That’s fine. Either way works as a repellent.

Speaking of safe. HQC is the only cure available for Covid-19. It has been used successfully for 65 years. It is affordable (no patent fees) and is used world wide successfully.

Justifiable languor August 1, 2020 at 7:41 AM

I remember that need clip well. Pelosi was giddy, high. Maybe she just had a dose of adrenochrome. That evil drug available to elites.

Brandi August 1, 2020 at 8:06 AM

Gittyup is right, we all saw it, De Blasio did the same thing in New York city & Biden (along with every Democrat in Congress) condemned the travel restrictions and said Trump was being “Xenophobic”.

“You know who wouldn’t stop the virus? Joe Biden. We know Biden wouldn’t have done the travel ban because he told us over and over….(right up until he had to reverse his position that is).

Biden said Trump was “reactionary,” “hysterical,” “xenophobic,” and “counterproductive.”

It was the Democrat mantra.

While the left was taking the position that said travel restrictions were not necessary, Trump was making bold moves to fend off the virus… and now the left cries Trump was not moving “fast enough”.

It’s blatant hypocrisy.

Silva August 1, 2020 at 8:38 AM

Giddyup, Since you waited for a new week to respond, I brought over our remarks for context.

Silva July 30, 2020 at 2:15 PM
We couldn’t have any help from the Federal Government with the pandemic, no testing, masks not important, discouraged for months (don’t be sissies!) it’ll just disappear, it was a Democratic, deep state hoax! We couldn’t all just SIP for a couple of months and get it done with. but we might have to postpone the 2020 election till it’s safer (I honestly wonder when THAT will [ever] be?).

Gittyup July 30, 2020 at 9:44 PM
We wouldn’t be seeing a spike in Covid cases if Nancy Pelosi hadn’t visited Chinatown (not wearing a mask) and told everybody it was perfectly safe and to “come on down.” Or, invited everybody to the Chinese New Year Parade. Or, if Democrats hadn’t encouraged protesters to “go for it.” Or, selectively excluded church gatherings but still permitted protests destroying their credibility, once again.

Silva July 30, 2020 at 11:21 PM
Gittyup, you may be interested in reading an article called “Trump’s False Claims about Pelosi and Chinatown”.

“If I lose it’s because the election was rigged!” Donald J. Trump repeated several times nearing the election in November 2016, as he prepared for the humiliation of defeat predicted by the majority of pundits and polls. If the Donald wants to postpone the election, it’s not about our safety. He isn’t confident about his chances.

RIP Herman Cain.

Yes. It’s very clear Pelosi’s Feb. 24 Chinatown video is responsible for where we are today.😜 One American life lost to COVID19 every minute. Nice deflection, BTW.

Brandi August 1, 2020 at 5:21 PM

Silva, the bit about Trump supposedly calling Covid 19 ” a Democratic, hoax!” is bullsquat!

He called out Democrats politicizing corona virus.
They were claiming that Trump was doing NOTHING about the virus!
He called Democrats claims “a hoax”.

In fact, The Washington Post “reporter” Amber Phillips, a political reporter, said:

“My apologies for quoting the president out of context. As The Washington Post’s Fact Checker makes clear, he called Democrats politicizing corona virus a hoax”.

He’d have been better off just saying it was an outright lie!

Democrat politicians still use this lie knowing their dimwitted constituents won’t question anything they say.

SF oh August 1, 2020 at 7:05 AM

I saw a video on the KGO-tv website of Dr. Desmon Carson, in Richmond, ranting about people not wearing masks. Throughout the press conference his mask constantly slipped down his face. He kept re-adjusting the mask by pulling it up from the inside, thereby, touching his face with his ungloved hand that had been resting on the podium which had been used by other speakers. Dr Carson went on to state that the National Guard should be brought in to force people to wear masks. Yet he criticized the National Guard being called out to “stem the non-violent protestors who haven’t killed anyone”. Of course in typical ABC new style, they continued the story in Lafayette and Moraga, insinuating that it is the average suburbia residents who are causing the spike.

Sancho Panza August 1, 2020 at 1:47 PM

@SF oh~
I, too, saw that video directly from the CCC Health dashboard site(7/31 @3:30p)…it was quite disconcerting watching Dr. Carson fiddle with the mask every few seconds as he is lecturing about masks, distancing, etc! I got to see the ‘unedited’ version of this video as he did come to the podium a second time and basically threw his colleagues ‘under the bus’ for taking an oath and some deciding to not work under these Covid-19 times.—ending his talks with ‘ashes to ashes, dust to dust.’ What was more troubling to me was that the video ran for a few minutes afterwards and at one point this doctor brought down the mask to his chin as he was speaking to someone who was masked, no more that 2 feet away from him!

That said, I enjoyed watching Dr. Desmon Carson as he appears to be a very spirited person…wouldn’t hesitate to see him as a patient!

Moral of the story: Watch live news footage as you never know what will be edited..

SF oh August 1, 2020 at 3:23 PM

To me, Dr. Carson came off as a nut. People in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones. He reminded me of Sara Cody giving a Covid update and licking her finger to turn a page! Good grief – these people are crazy. Then they wonder why no one listens to them.

Sancho Panza August 1, 2020 at 5:24 PM

@SF oh~
Yes, I agree, there was that ‘practice what one preaches’ going on with his mask fiasco, but I gave him credit for having gumption to call out his colleagues! Just shows you that even professionals are having a hard time with masks, social distancing—or, could it be a facade? I admired those Bakersfield doctors who had a press conference and wore no masks, were seated next to each other—censored back in April.

SF oh August 1, 2020 at 7:00 PM

@ Sancho Panza – Yes, I agree!

oldman August 1, 2020 at 7:40 AM

Joe F: “I don’t see this president-elect as a legitimate president,” Lewis said in an interview with NBC’s “Meet the Press” a week before Trump was sworn into office. “I think the Russians participated in helping this man get elected and they have destroyed the candidacy of Hillary Clinton.”

Would you attend?

greg August 1, 2020 at 8:04 AM

Yes. Because when you’re supposed to be the leader of the country, you put aside differences when an iconic American figure dies and the country unites in grief.

But, he’s Donald Trump. He plays golf while 160k Americans die and millions lose their ability to pay rent.

Chicken Little August 1, 2020 at 12:19 PM

Just like the left put aside their differences and left politics out of the funeral. Oh, wait…

Sam August 1, 2020 at 12:22 PM

To you an anti semitic, race baiter who couldn’t even work diplomatically with the new president is an icon. He’s not an icon. Unless you are a racist. Stop trying to make him a superhero because he’s black. It’s really no big deal to me who you align yourself with. But don’t expect others to support that garbage of a human.

Brandi August 1, 2020 at 6:53 PM

Lefty Trump bashing bait…

He didn’t attend the funeral! “He’s disrespectful & does not care”.

And if he attended the funeral….”Boooo! Leave!….He’s grandstanding! He is a distraction! …John doesn’t want you here!”

Trump took the high road… ordered flags at half staff & he said something nice about Mr. Lewis … all the while knowing nothing would be good enough for the Democrat Socialists.

Simple Truth August 1, 2020 at 8:20 AM

Lewis was a racist hate-monger.

HappyPappy August 1, 2020 at 1:16 PM

Simple Truth –
You can’t say that out loud, it’could bring out the rabid leftist lunatics ranting their rousing defense of poor ol’ ……..???? lessee, uh what was his name anyway. Don’t matter, lunatics always have something to use to express their seething hate.

Justifiable languor August 2, 2020 at 6:39 AM

Lewis changed his mind about antisemitism during the Obama years. All aboard for the Iran nuclear deal, which later became warmongering threats. Israel is constantly threatened with annihilation by Imams and terrorists.

Concord74 August 1, 2020 at 8:27 AM

Why is it a “hate crime” and vandalism to have painted over an illegally painted letters on a public thoroughfare but it is perfectly marvelous to paint monstrous ugly murals of various references to that monkey Floyd, BLM labeling, threats towards LEO and the stupidity of defunding??
There was no public hearing held for that sign painted onto the street. It was probably at the behest of Schroder that pushed it through before anyone could invoke an injunction to hold it up!
Not all Demos are brain-dead but the continuous re-election of Pelosi, Barbara Lee, Eshoo, Weiner, Swalwell, ad nauseum back into office speaks otherwise!!

HappyPappy August 1, 2020 at 8:33 AM

We should be more afraid of a democrat in the WH than of the WuFlu.
Suffering the horrors of the WuFlu and losing everything is only accidental and preventable.

ClayDen August 1, 2020 at 8:38 AM

What Obama did at the funeral was despicable, but what you would expect from the worst President in our history.

The five most frightening words in the English language: Commander in Chief Joe Biden.

Hanne Jeppesen August 2, 2020 at 9:46 PM

I think perhaps some historians would disagree.

Gittyup August 2, 2020 at 11:16 PM

@ClayDen Absolutely! Demented Commander in Chief Joe Biden with his finger on that fabled “button” with his wife trying to distract him. Besides his dementia, it looks like he has a problem with impulse control, as well. And, let’s not even count the times he opens his mouth to insert his foot. Biden equals bad news all around.

Ricardoh August 1, 2020 at 9:50 AM

MAIL IN BALLOTS I hope Republicans are as adept at falsifying ballots as the democrats.

Chicken Little August 1, 2020 at 12:21 PM

I get a ton of mail at my address for people who no longer live here. I can’t wait to see how many mail-in ballots I get.

Brandi August 1, 2020 at 3:49 PM

I doubt there are enough morally bankrupt Republicans to make a difference with illegal voting & no such shortage of Democrats to do so.

The big push from the Dems is to get those absentee & mail in votes sent in before Biden has to debate Trump & gets destroyed with the world watching.

Lazy One August 1, 2020 at 9:14 PM

I received something in the mail from Nancy Pelosi’s office. It was addressed to the previous resident. I have lived at this address for 14 years. Mail in ballots? I don’t think so.

Bobfished August 1, 2020 at 10:41 AM

While in Portland they have started the book burning! The first book they have started burning is the Bible!

PO'd August 1, 2020 at 12:43 PM

Acting more like the Fascists everyday. The Nazis burned books by having students sack libraries to burn books that were anti-German.
None of this has any relative merit to the death of George Floyd or any other issue pertinent to racism.

That’s why they’re rioters, not protestors.

Look at it August 1, 2020 at 1:28 PM

RAGE against God, that’s what marxists do. They are emulating the actions of their heros, their fellow nazis & dictators! The goal is to destabilize America.
No surprise Al Qaeda recently issued an open letter to the rioters. They see the domestic terrorists as their allies.

TRUMP 2020 🙌

Justifiable languor August 2, 2020 at 6:42 AM

If this isn’t a coup ( a sudden, violent, and illegal seizure of power from a government.), Then you don’t know history.

Fred P. August 4, 2020 at 8:42 AM

Not ONE liberal/democrat has posted his/her opposition to the riots, book burnings, shakedowns (in Louisville, KY), etc, etc, etc….. on this blog.

That tells me one H3LL of a lot – they (the liberals/democrats) here FULLY support the violence being perpetrated across the country.

No? Then effing PROVE it and DO something about it.

Try to harm me or my family? By God, it’ll be the last thing you EVER do.

HappyPappy August 1, 2020 at 12:02 PM

If a woman in Arkansas had to go to court to get Don Jr to pay child support that woman would be the most sought after interview by the bloodsuckers in the leftist media.
But it’s Hunter Biden so the media is respecting the privacy of all parties.

PO'd August 2, 2020 at 5:22 PM

A perfect example of media bias. It’s not just HOW an issue gets covered, it’s WHAT issue gets covered or forgotten.Fundamental.

The Fearless Spectator August 1, 2020 at 12:11 PM

Newsom and Becerra are at it again. AB1253 will raise the top marginal tax rate by 3.5%, and worse yet, it’s retroactive to January 1 2020.

Newsom beats up the feds wanting a huge stimulus package to bail out poorly managed California. Yet this California tax increase will beat up WORKING citizens to the tune of $6.8 Billion.

And he dodged the transfer tax on his mansion. This is all so wrong.

HappyPappy August 1, 2020 at 12:26 PM

Slick Willie swears he’s never ridden the Lolita Express, nor been to Pedophile Island with his pal Epstein, and never met 16 year old Rachel Chandler. (cough)

Well ……”I suppose that depends on what your definition of “is” is.”
Who could forget that attempt at Stand-up Comedy/

Especially since evidence has been found that Slick Willie went there 27 times. And some law abiding scoundrel has discovered a photo of 16 year old Rachel Chandler and the pedophile himself with his arm around the young girl. OOPS!

Let’s all follow this story just to see how it’s handled by the corrupt leftist media, shall we.
It’ll probably get filed in the same drawer with the Hunter Biden story.

RANDOM TASK August 1, 2020 at 2:20 PM

if we had actual media inn this state that cared about all the people and not just democrats and their feelings ….

we would have shoved out the corruption years ago

but alas the media is the biggest hog in the pen as they lop up and cover up any thing that could seem dire against democrat politicians

why there is not mueller type of investigation into the doings of this state is beyond me

trump if you want to be re elected

point your finger at demicronia and dismantle it …follow the money …follw the emails …follow the media misinformation natzi tactics as they are pro dem and not afraid to show it …this is how corrupt the state is when the media does not even hide their bias …..

drain demcronia trump ….and push out the illegals ….
then maybe the state can rise up again and be great ..instead of a section 8 hole and middle class hated hole for the democrats to beat into submission

Bobfished August 1, 2020 at 2:28 PM

Three cheers for Trader Joe’s!!! Activists tried to force them to change the names on some of their food labels. Trader Joe’s said, “No”. Honestly, I haven’t shopped there because it is not close to my house. But, in support of them standing up to these lunatics — I will drive the extra five miles to shop at Trader Joe’s.

The Wizard August 1, 2020 at 5:29 PM

I’m very happy they did.

Sancho Panza August 1, 2020 at 6:54 PM

I was just at Trader’s yesterday for the first time since this Covid-19 nightmare began and I must say the workers there are the most jovial bunch I’ve seen at any grocery store…refreshing! I, too, will be making more of an effort to support them, especially knowing what you just shared.

jjshawk August 2, 2020 at 9:31 PM

I haven’t been to Trader Joe’s since the covid outbreak, standing in line kills it for me, but their stand deserves massive support. The people at the Concord TJ are always nice and helpful.

Justifiable languor August 3, 2020 at 8:04 AM

I was relieved to hear of TJs stance on their beloved labeling. It has always been a point of delight to see and read. I was sorry to see the demise of the branded bags. But I have repurposed them in my freezer storage where they continue to work their magic.

The Somali Hot Tamale is at it again!

Rep. Ilhan Omar’s re-election campaign reportedly paid her new husband’s consulting firm more than $600,000 in the first three weeks of July.

The firm called E Street Group is led by Omar’s husband, Tim Mynett, and it’s received more than $1.6 million from Omar’s campaign since August 2018, according to FEC records.

Nice racket !

Justifiable languor August 2, 2020 at 6:50 AM

Racketeering: Money laundering and other creative accounting practices that are misused in ways to disguise sources of illegal funds.

Omar must be learning the ropes of congress. It’s a double standard. Politicians get a wink when they commit crimes. That is how they become wealthy. That is how they become entangled in owing favors.

Hopefully, businesses and cities are starting to stand up and reject mob rule. Alameda City Council was being pressured to defund their police force. City Council said it would endanger Alameda residents and visitors and voted NO. Good for you, Alameda.

Brandi August 2, 2020 at 9:12 AM

Interesting how Yahoo is suspending the comments feature they have always offered in the past… and less than 100 days before an election.

I guess the notoriously left leaning Yahoo can’t afford the free exchange of comments & ideas, not with all the FBI and Clinton scandals being so prominent in the news, not to mention Joe Biden trying to hide out & avoid any public speaking which exposes his cognitive short comings and the Covid 19 “facts” being such a dumpster fire of disinformation.

Yahoo must be embracing the old “Ignorance is bliss” policy.

Dawg August 2, 2020 at 12:52 PM

KGO Ch 7, KRON Ch 4, KTVU Ch 2, KPIX Ch 5, and many other news sites no longer have a comment section. It’s the Left’s attempt of shutting down free speech and to indoctrinate the foolish who are unable to think clearly and rationally in order to form an objective opinion.

Sam August 2, 2020 at 6:25 PM

Step 1: Create free speech marketplace, guide all conversation to it.

Step 2: Turn it off

Free speech gone. First amendment workaround.

an informed electorate won’t blindly vote democrat, hence it is bad for gavin and his aunt nancy

The Fearless Spectator August 2, 2020 at 9:34 AM

If we don’t change mass-communication, it will become as a big a crisis as anything else we face. Humans still make decisions reading and watching. Here are two things published this morning on Portland Oregon:

1-Violence continues with 150 rounds fired into a building and one person shot. Police pummeled with thrown objects from protesters dressed as press.

2-This weekends protests have remained peaceful in Portland now that the Feds aren’t interfering.

Well which is true? Both? Neither? Somehow we need a reporting service that publishes facts in bullet points. No commentary, no opinion, no politics. I know it’s a pipe dream but it would sure help us all make better decisions. I would be glad to pay for a subscription for that type of news.

Brandi August 2, 2020 at 10:41 PM

You know that the hypnotized never lie……… do they?

Fred P. August 4, 2020 at 8:36 AM

I think the general public isn’t really interested in the facts; nor are they capable of critical thinking that would push them to investigate biased reporting.

It’s strictly infotainment. If it bleeds, it leads.

I would love to see it – but the reporting services aren’t interested in the facts – only their ratings…. despite their claims.

Concord Guy August 2, 2020 at 1:12 PM

Kudos to President Obama for his direct and forceful eulogy at Congressman John Lewis’ funeral service. John Lewis was an activist his entire adult life. Those who are sanctimoniously condemning President Obama for being inappropriate at that moment are either being naive or obtuse.

To Do List August 2, 2020 at 2:39 PM

Example from Ossie Davis’s 4 minute eulogy of Malcolm X:

“However we may have differed with him – or with each other about him and his value as a man – let his going from us serve only to bring us together, now.”

Example from Obama’s 40 minute eulogy of Lewis:

“But today we witness with our own eyes police officers kneeling on the necks of Black Americans. George Wallace may be gone. But we can witness our federal government sending agents to use tear gas and batons against peaceful demonstrators.”

The Fearless Spectator August 2, 2020 at 5:46 PM

That wasn’t a forceful eulogy, in fact it wasn’t a eulogy at all. It was a Reverend Al Sharpton moment without Reverend Al.

And speaking of George Wallace and his ilk, Joe Biden was a speaker at the funeral for Strom Thurmond.

Strom Thurmond made George Wallace look like a Quaker.

To Do List August 2, 2020 at 7:17 PM

And in case I am being too subtle for Mr. Guy, as said by Fearless, Obama’s was not a eulogy but a narcissistic 40 minute political speech to create division. And saying it is appropriate because Lewis was an activist is dismantled by the comparison to Malcolm X. There is not an acceptable double standard to hijack funerals of public officials, and if someone tried that B.S. at a funeral of one of my relatives they would be escorted out, and not nicely.

Gittyup August 2, 2020 at 11:31 PM

Nothing Obama said in his eulogy honored Lewis neither before or after he uttered the words, “But today we witness with our own eyes police officers kneeling on the necks of Black Americans. George Wallace may be gone. But we can witness our federal government sending agents to use tear gas and batons against peaceful demonstrators.” It was ingracious and opportunistically self-serving.

Gittyup August 3, 2020 at 1:17 PM

@Happy Pappy OMG, You really scared me there for a minute. I feel really bad laughing at Biden’s flubs, but this is the best they’ve got? Democrats can’t be serious about nominating this guy to run the country. It’s all a ruse to get a female Vice Presidential candidate into the Presidency without allowing an election to take place. Biden can’t serve. He doesn’t have one brain cell left that’s functioning properly. Democrats themselves will force him out for medical reasons making his female (probably black) Vice President our next and unelected President. This is their strategy and they really expect the country to fall for it. They are completely delusional and, worse than that, disingenuous in their underhanded dirty tricks.

If you were to arrive from Atlanta, Georgia, in Washington DC there is a mandatory 14 day quarantine. Evidently DC mayors office considers entire state of Georgia “high-risk”.

Yet members of congress and staff who attended john lewis funeral in Atlanta, Georgia are “special” and exempt from said quarantine. Saw picture taken in church during funeral, was definite lack of social distancing.

We’ll perhaps learn in next two weeks if old democrats are immune as well as, “special”.

OH, but of course, it makes perfect sense . . .

democrat’s latest $3.4 trillion coronavirus response legislation, well turns out somebody actually read part of it. I know, what a shock. Key word here is, coronavirus.

Is reported Pelosi said, when questioned about gift to the POT industry buried in the legislation, “I don’t agree with you that cannabis is not related to this. This is a therapy that has proven successful.”

Translation, POT industry gives MANY millions in Campaign Contributions to democrats and for that MONEY they expect results.

This site have a comment section, but many reasonable comments being critical of Trump does not get posted, I don’t see the difference. I’m not for shutting any comment down, being it left or right, I think everyone should be heard.

@Hanne. People are not complaining as much about President Trump because they know that Biden would be a complete disaster if he won. To get a clue, please try these searches:

Seems seattle wants replacements for Police to be trauma informed, gender affirming, anti racist praxis and well versed in de-escalation skills.

Wondering if these new Police replacements will be able to protect the community and themselves by verbally deescalating a .357 hollow point.

Still wondering how voters of seattle managed to elect folks so lacking in any grasp of reality.

Original G August 3, 2020 at 3:29 PM

In case you have doubts as to how “special” liberal politicians believe themselves to be,

“… Look, the fact is that what I decided to do with the Black Lives Matter murals, and this came out of a meeting…with community leaders and activists who said this would be such an important thing for this city to declare, officially, that is something that, again, transcends all normal realities. Because we are in a moment in history where this had to be said and done. That’s a decision I made. But the normal process continues for anyone who wants to apply.”
NYC mayor de blasio . . .
all that to justify a knee jerk decision.

Well ya know, might in this case have to agree with the mayor. Am thinking thought process allowing local street “mural”, “transcends all normal realities”.

Still wonder how many minutes it takes ’em, to pass a mirror ? ?

They said Police originally providing security could not use tear gas and Police pulled out an said, you’re on your own.

There is a solution, how’s about we give democrats same level of protection they give our children, give them a stack of metal signs proclaiming a Gun Free Zone.

Holland’s top scientists have examined data and research about WuFlu.
Guess what, they claim there is no clear evidence that wearing face diapers protects — anyone, and wearing them may actually worsen the fight against WuFlu.
Holland’s Outbreak Management Team, a group of experts advising the government, first ruled against face-rags in May and has re-evaluated the evidence several times, including again last week.
It believes they detract from a clear three-pronged message that has kept deaths from WuFlu down to less than half the rate in Britain: wash your hands regularly, maintain social distancing of 1.5 metres and stay at home if suffering any symptoms.
The only exception has been on public transport, where masks are mandatory because it is difficult to stay apart on crowded transports.
‘We have seen this approach work,” said Christian Hoebe, a professor of infectious diseases in Maastricht and member of the advisory team. “Face masks should not be seen as a magic bullet that halts the spread”. Masks protect others from you , but NOT YOU from others.
But let’s not allow facts stop us from demonstrating out flock mentality. And some masks are becoming very stylish. That’s important too, right?

The death rate per 1000 WuFlu cases in the 12 most conservative states has improved to the point that it is currently five times lower than the corresponding average rate in the 12 most progressive states.

Will democrat politicians, their party and their media survive what they’ve created ? There was trayvon, Ferguson, freddie gray, etc. This go round they’ve turned up the volume, and as in the past their creation metastasizes out of their control.

During obama years democrats lost over 1,000 seats at federal and state level.

Keep in mind powerful, and sadly some actions suggest possible cognitively impaired, player from obama years is still in play.

America is tired of the violence in large democrat run cities.

Back in March, BLM mobsters descended onto the front yard of Jackie Lacey,
L.A’s first black DA. The mobsters were pissed because Lacey, taking her job seriously, prosecuted criminals. The NERVE!
The DA had already been stalked and received death threats for doing her job.
Probably scared $h!tless, by having a hostile mob on his porch, David Lacey, Jackie’s husband, greeted the mob with his “lil fren” and demanded that they leave his property.
According to written law, California SHALL recognize the right of self-defense, including the Castle Doctrine; the right to defend oneself and one’s family in the home.
However, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra’s decision to file charges against David Lacey, those laws don’t mean diddly squat to the lunatic leftists in charge of California.

Debarred (requested to surrender her license) lawyer Michelle Obama claims she’s “suffering” from “depression” due to worries over the virus, racial injustice and the Trump administration. Pretty funny huh, after the misery she and Big Ears put us through.
The America hater, 56, made the remarks in the latest episode of her little podcast released on Spotify, Wednesday. Wait…you mean all those millions you and Big Ears swindled don’t make you happy?
She said she has been struggling with her exercise routine and sleep. Poor baby.
“I’m waking up in the middle of the night because I’m worrying about something or there’s a heaviness,” she admitted. I bet she’s all kinds of fun to live with.
It’s KARMA and I love it! Punished by her own conscience.

Happy Pappy, four separate fact-checking services (Reuters, politico, Fact-check,and Snopes) …. and more which I only skimmed… verify that Michelle Obama VOLUNTARILY moved her license to practice law to “inactive status” only because she had decided not to continue in the field of law. No one….. nothing…. had even requested an investigation or a charge against her.
Please stop your intentional spewing of falsehoods…. such long chains of them, too.

Antler – Thank you for bringing your opinion to the forefront. Searching for those sites that support your opinion must have been quite laborious.
I find it interesting that you only had an issue with the one point, although not surprising.
When one has power and clout, one doesn’t have their license revoked, they’re are asked politely to voluntarily surrender it. (move to inactive)
But I encourage you to maintain your beliefs and opinion. I shall maintain mine.

HappyPappy August 7, 2020 at 5:40 PM

Well it’s Friday, the end of another week on claycord. I’ve posted many comments this week, far more than usual. Blame the unnecessary lock-down by our incompetent little Dandy taking up space in our Capitol. He’s a good nephew to Princess Nancy and follows her orders to the letter.
I hope I’ve managed to make a few leftist heads explode, for that is my goal, along with posting the factual truth.
I try my best to verify my comments because it’s the right thing to do and the rabid jackals will attack me as they do our president simply because they don’t like something about him.
I wish a great weekend to conservatives from all political parties. To the rest of you………may you find a way to control your seething hate and know that you may be thought as fools, we still don’t hate you.
