He's definitely tripping on dex The man who normally can't walk up stairs -- did!

2 flights of stairs no less. He's flying high. I'm looking forward to the crash when it's withdrawn and he's intubated.

Dear America, You are waking up as Germany once did ...

This was a sticky at the top of the page just now and I thought everyone should see it. I'm going to paste it into my sig line.

Would it be possible for Biden to re-open the census in January in order to complete it.

Since we know that the Blob of the Orange Death is guaranteeing a massive undercount, particularly of people of color and immigrants, could Biden under the constitution continue the census in '21, despite Trump's census bureau issuing some kind of report by the end of this year? If so, could red states prevent this by suing the federal government for keeping them from their duty to redistrict their states?

Big Tent revival in Des Plaines reveals Pritzger exemption for "free exercise of religion."


DES PLAINES, IL — Amid reports of upwards of 150 people gathering without masks at a series of religious activities at the Methodist Campground on East Algonquin Road, the City of Des Plaines is demanding the group follow state COVID-19 mandates. Members of The Last Reformation have been holding "Big Tent Revival" events all week with plans to continue through Sunday.

Following an emergency meeting Tuesday night, Mayor Matthew Bogusz signed a revised and updated emergency declaration that according to Alderman Andrew Goczkowski, puts "Des Plaines' face covering and social distancing requirements a step ahead of Gov. J.B. Pritzker's executive order," which includes a broad exemption for the free exercise of religion. The new Des Plaines' declaration is intended to treat all public gatherings equally, according to Goczkowski, whether they are religious in nature or not.

"Failure to do so will result in a citation and fine," Goczkowski said. "Failure to comply after a citation may result in further action." According to the city, the fine is $750 for each violation, and it would mount each day.

Torben Sondergaard, organizer of the "Big Tent Revival" events, took to social media Wednesday requesting assistance from President Donald Trump. He stated his group will continue congregating and that an "order is not a law."


Good for Des Plaines but a great big hole in Pritzger's mask and distancing orders for the rest of us. And now the revival organizer is dragging the Mask of the Orange Death into it.

Mary Trump: Putin, Kim, McConnell "more than a passing psychological resemblance to Daddy Trump."



She calls her uncle his father’s “monster—the only child of his who mattered to him—[who] would ultimately be rendered unlovable by the very nature of Fred’s preference for him. In the end, there would be no love for Donald at all, just his agonizing thirsting for it.

“After the election, Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong-Un, and Mitch McConnell, all of whom bear more than a passing psychological resemblance to Fred, recognized in a way others should have but did not that Donald’s checkered personal history and his unique personality flaws make him extremely vulnerable to manipulation by smarter, more powerful men,” Mary writes. “His pathologies have rendered him so simple-minded that it takes nothing more than repeating to him the things he says to and about himself dozens of times a day—he’s the smartest, the greatest, the best—to get him to do whatever they want.”


Growing up, Donald Trump sought to win his imperious father’s approval, lying as a means of “self-aggrandizement” and seeking to differentiate himself from Fred Jr., whom their father saw as weak. “By limiting Donald’s access to his own feelings and rendering many of them unacceptable, Fred perverted his son’s perception of the world and damaged his ability to live in it,” Mary Trump writes, according to an excerpt revealed by The Washington Post. She recalled how Donald Trump would hide his younger brother Robert’s toys and threatened to destroy him when he wouldn’t “stop crying” over it.

First Lady Melania Trump also makes an appearance, with Mary writing that after her uncle Robert and his then-wife Blaine had met Melania for the first time, “Rob told me that Melania had barely spoken throughout the entire meal.

“‘Maybe her English isn’t very good,’ I said.

“‘No,’ he scoffed. ‘She knows what she’s there for.’”

Oh look! Looks like Jr. and Kimberly picked up the covid at a Hamptons party June 28.

A Hamptons insider was stunned to arrive at a house in Bridgehampton on Saturday night to find a packed party that looked “as if COVID had never happened” — with Donald Trump Jr. and girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle among the revelers.

Our spy estimated there were about 100 partiers, who our source says were maskless, at the bash at the 51 Sandpiper Lane mansion, hosted by famed Hamptons builder Joe Farrell, who owns the pricey pile and is selling one down the road for $15 million. The event — which comes days after Long Island entered Phase Three of reopening and while COVID cases surge in some parts of the country — had a caterer and uniformed bartenders.


So she's tested positive and he hasn't yet, but they were together at same super-spreader event six days ago so there's still hope of a two-fer.

Let me be the first to say that his aim is to put Obama and Hilary in prison.

And if Trump wins reelection, they will do.it. Oops, I forgot Biden. Him too. And they'll use the "findings" of Durham's report to smear our current and last nominees and President Obama next summer, which will result in loss of voter enthusiasm ok our side. That's in addition to Putin's contribution.
