Makes me think of Matthew 13:24-25 "The Kingdom of Heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away." China is trying to sow bad seed in Americas fields. .
Some Gardners Say They've Planted Mysterious Seeds from China. Here's What Bloomed
Officials say anyone who has planted the seeds should burn the plants or triple-bag them and throw them away.
This from Wayne DuPree:
"Mind you, he’s speaking to a room full of people, who appear to be perfectly "safe.” Nobody had to "mail-in” their grief for John Lewis’s funeral, so why do we have to mail-in our vote?”
A word from Tim:
But haven't you heard? Wuhan virus is politically correct and bipasses those who are woke, much like the Angel of Death passed over the Israelites who had lamb's blood on their door frames.
Fauci is jumping the shark.
Dr. Fauci: Wear Goggles or Eye Shields to Prevent Spread of Covid 19, Flu Vaccine a Must
I think Trump is being quite cagey here in that he's letting Fauci blow himself up - and by extension the whole "believe the 'experts' and 'science'" crowd. Fauci is a fool and he's doing more damage to the Covidiots than anybody.
When your enemy is self-destructing get out of the way and let him do it!
I actually agree with Fauci in that cloth masks do nothing, and if you really want to reduce the spread of Wuflu you have to cover the entire face.
Flu vaccines are pointless though; the flu is down because of our obsessive behavior with Coocoo virus. But it may come back hard, since all of our immune systems are now getting lazy.
At any rate, I think Fauci is ruining his reputation with the American People. Nobody is going to buy swim goggles and walk around looking like a Marvel villain.
Well, at least Fauci has the swim goggles for his shark-jumping adventure...
In case you were wondering, the latest Science shows protesting does not spread COVID. But going to parks, church, etc., does. Science!
Research Determines Protests Did Not Cause Spike in Coronavirus Cases
New Right Network says:
Joe Biden supports free trade with China and Mexico and granting citizenship to illegal immigrants, all of which cost Americans jobs and drives down wages. https://rfr.bz/f12el9z
It will be a return to the globalist, New World Order in which America serves primarily as the engine for high tech while manufacturing is done in China and India and Mexico and those not in the tech sector either work for McDonalds or go on the dole. That's the future the Bidens and the rest of the elites have planned for us. They want Americans to be drones in a service economy and be grateful for the crumbs they toss our way. They will get rich selling on the international market, though. The America Joe Biden wants is a type of feudal order with international lords and the rest of us as serfs. Do not doubt it.
Here is what happens at the intersection of fear, socially approved anger, tolerance of violence, and pseudo-scientific stupidity.
Florida Man Opens Fire in Hotel Lobby Because a Mother and Son Weren't Social Distancing, Police Say
BBC4 Radio vs. Rush Limbaugh: I talked with an Exxon-Mobil retiree this week, and what he told me agrees with this summary... Exxon never had a disinformation campaign to reposition global warming "fact" as theory. There is no Exxon memo claiming such a thing. There was instead a proposal to Exxon by a PR company, which Exxon rejected. Exxon scientists knew that global warming theory was out there, but when they investigated the details they were (as people who understood computer modeling and good engineering practices) unconvinced, and knew that destroying the world's primary source of energy without good reason was a mistake. Now, 30 years later, the uncertainty of human-caused warming is just as uncertain as it originally was in the 1979 Charney Report. BBC also includes some outright falsehoods in their podcast. Shoddy, alarmist, one-sided journalism.
BBC Radio 4 v. Rush Limbaugh "How They Made Us Doubt Everything" Episode 6 "Reposition Global Warming as Theory not Fact"
... the repeated comparison of those of us who don't agree with alarmist claims about climate change to "tobacco scientists" borders on libel.
A word from Tim:
To quote Carl Sandburg "If the facts are against you, argue the law. If the law is against you, argue the facts. If the law and the facts are against you, pound the table and yell like hell”.Seems both the facts and the law are against the Gang Green here, so they are making a full-scale attack and yelling like hell. I see this as a measure of their desperation. But of course the media will promote this thing to the hilt and try to get people to believe Big Oil is funding "denial" science (while ignoring the fact Big Government and Big Green and Big Corporations are funding the Climate Change industry.)
If this doesn't prove that Black Lies Matter is a terror group that has nothing whatever to do about fighting police brutality or racism... here are BLM "protesters" in Portland burning a stack of Bibles.

We used to just call them spoiled brats. "Helicopter parenting" is the new-fangled term for overprotective.
How Generation Z Became America's Most Intolerant Generation
Strong idealism with little in the way of facts and intolerance to others' opinions is the hallmark of children. We usually grow out of it. But Gen. Z is a case of generational stunted development.
Federal Appeals Court Throws Out Death Sentence for Marathon Bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev
It was as inevitable as the sun rising. You have to have vigilantism when you no longer have the police. It was something the Progressives fought against from the time of the Civil War onward. The Ku Klux Klan was originally a vigilante organization, for example. People are going to start being shot. It was guaranteed to happen.
In Minneapolis Armed Citizens Set Up Patrols Amid Calls to Defund the Police
That is why that couple here in St. Louis was charged with brandishing a weapon against looters; the word had to get out that you would be prosecuted if you took the law into your own hands. The Left wants this to run it's course (strange; they don't want Covid to do so but BLM rioting...)
If this movement really does gain steam we'll wind up with an America like the Wild West, including paid strongmen to protect those who can scrounge up the money.
Yet more clear evidence Climate Change is a hoax. Gang Greenous alarmist Eric Holthaus says it's "about Justice" and not science!

Chuck Schumer said D.C. statehood is a "top priority" should his party gain control of the Senate, which would hand the overwhelmingly Democratic city two seats in the chamber Schumer would be in charge of.
Top Dem Senate Challengers Silent on Schumer's Push for D.C. Statehood
A word from Tim:
McConnell ought to offer to fold D.C. into Maryland and see what Schumer's reaction would be. It would be a good tool to use against the Democrats on this issue, because they will become quite indignant when the offer is made. It would be proof this is just a power grab.
Sadly, Mitch isn't that swift.
D.C. was supposed to be outside of the political territory of the United States, a truly non-partisan town not subject to political pressures from the big states. It was not really supposed to have a large permanent population. It certainly was not supposed to become a stronghold for one political party who treated the other like an unwanted guest. That is the reality of D.C. today. Frankly, the city ought to be reduced in size to the mall area and run entirely by the Federal government. The rest should be given to Maryland and Virginia. Or it ought to be forcibly vacated and salt sewn in the Earth (my particular favorite). But statehood is absolutely out of the question; it doesn't have enough people, and it is hopelessly corrupt.
The FBI - being overworked in their search for a way to overthrow the legally elected President - is ignoring radical jihadists and allowing dozens of terrorist training camps to continue to operate in the U.S.
Read the post from Cheri Berens.
There are over 35 terrorist training camps open for business here, and any number of terrorist financiers walking around loose. I rather suspect these people are training the Antifa/Black Lives Matter (BLAM) groups in how to stage their riots. And meanwhile there is funding, much of it coming from China and overseas, feeding BLAM and the FBI does nothing. Or are they helping them? Given the efforts to overthrow the Will of the People I wonder if our friendly national police aren't giving at least tacit support.
We are reaching critical mass in the collapse of the U.S.
Did the Feds cut a deal to leave Portland? Leftie Oregon Governor Kate Brown says they did.
The moonbat Governor tried to blame the violence on Federal agents, who arrived there a scant two weeks ago. She referred to them as "an occupying force". They have been solely occupied with protecting Federal buildings during the rioting.
Brown claims she made the agreement with Vice President Pence. The Vice President has yet to comment.
That would be a mistake on the part of the Trump Administration; President Trump needs to be seen as backing the rule of law, even when it is not popular. Caving on this sort of thing will not be seen as an attempt at reconciliation but as a sign of weakness. You have to maintain the appearance of strength.
I hope Trump isn't being seduced by the lure of believing media lies. He may think he's being perceived by America as overly harsh and thinks this will make him appear reasonable. It won't work. This is a political and cultural and spiritual war. Trump needs to understand that.
Good news. Trader Joe's is a good place to shop, with many products that you just can't get anywhere else, at least of comparable quality. I happen to like various canned fish products: red salmon, oil-packed tuna, kippered herring, smoked trout, smoked mackerel, etc., and TJ's is the place to get it. Charles Shaw wine is underpriced for the quality.
We noted in one of our Crazy Chronicles recently that Trader Joe’s was said to be following Aunt Jemima and Uncle Ben in expunging product names (like "Trader Giotto” and "Trader Jose”) that someone—it turned out to be some hopped-up 17 year old kid—found offensive.
Trader Joe’s has corrected the record with this announcement:
A Note About Our Product Naming
In light of recent feedback and attention we’ve received about our product naming, we have some things we’d like to say to clarify our approach.
A few weeks ago, an online petition was launched calling on us to "remove racist packaging from [our] products.” Following were inaccurate reports that the petition prompted us to take action. We want to be clear: we disagree that any of these labels are racist. We do not make decisions based on petitions. [emphasis in the original]
We make decisions based on what customers purchase, as well as the feedback we receive from our customers and Crew Members. If we feel there is need for change, we do not hesitate to take action.
Decades ago, our Buying Team started using product names, like Trader Giotto’s, Trader José’s, Trader Ming’s, etc. We thought then—and still do—that this naming of products could be fun and show appreciation for other cultures. For example, we named our Mexican beer "Trader José Premium” and a couple guacamole products are called "Avocado’s Number” in a kitschy reference to a mathematical theory.These products have been really popular with our customers, including some budding mathematicians.
Go here https://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2020/07/trader-joes-mans-the-ramparts-after-all.php for the entire article.By the way and for what it’s worth, Trader Joe’s in my area always has the lowest price for Laphroaig 10-year old [Scotch].

I'll bet she also supports the "transgender" movement. So, a dude in a dress is a real woman while a woman who thinks women should be born that way is a man? These people are seriously deluded...
Liberal Writer Trashed Conservative Women: They're "Honorary Men" not Real Women"
So, a real woman is like these cartoon character superhero shows where she beats hell out of a man who is double her weight, she is a ball-busting corporate executive, swears like a sailor, screws like a rabbit, and her bowel movements peel the paint off the walls? Yeah; that's a REAL WOMAN for sure!
