CIA, etc, are corrupt

Made the Russia, Russia, Russia hoax seem legitimate.

“Ric Grenell on @Newsmax just told the American people that the intel community weaponized intel against President Trump to make the Russia Collusion hoax seem legitimate. And they did it by classifying the warnings that the info was bogus.”

Trump kept us out of war

A new war, that is, as he tried to end Iraq and Afghanistan, despite the military-industrial complex fighting to maintain the fighting and spending and profiting. First president in many years not to start a new war.

Capitol Invasion Not The First

At least six other times have people invaded the so-called People’s House. It’s really the home of the monied elite, many crooks, and enough contradictory politics to gag a goose. But the current invaders, including Antifa, aren’t likely to come out ahead this time either. Kruiser at PJMedia has the usual funny take: Media finally finds a mob it doesn’t like.

Blacks at D-Day

You never hear about blacks in WW2, other than the Tuskegee Airmen, since all of them were in segregated units. But one canard, that blacks did not land on Omaha Beach, is exploded by the Army, itself. In this cool story about barrage balloons to thwart strafing fighter planes manned by an all-black battalion.

Sept 11, 2020

Watching the first video of the smoking Twin Towers in the TV room with my wife in the kitchen feeding our 1 and 1/2 year old early-rising son. Later us driving to a pre-planned vacation at Port Aransas, one of the few cars on the road, but seeing American flags flying from rural home after rural home. For miles. No falling man this year, unless you need it.
