Trump last night BULLHORN ALERT "Fani Willis in Atlanta, she's getting killed"



When I heard this clip last night from his interview my ears perked up and I couldn’t believe what he said. Like I said this sounded a lot louder than just a dog whistle.

I thought for sure someone would mention it but no one did. Perhaps they heard it as well and decided not to highlight it.

I did a google search on my phone trump Carlson interview and found it, however, I got an error message when trying from my iPad.



I hope Fani is well protected. I fear for her safety because these cultnutz would be willing to do their leader’s bidding’s.

Fort Worth Independent Schools have shut down the libraries




To look for “objectionable” books.



FORT WORTH, Texas — The Fort Worth Independent School District (FWISD) has closed all of its district libraries to take inventory of all books on shelves, according to a district spokesperson.
The district told WFAA "every campus library will be closed through August 25 so catalogs can be inventoried.” While 128 libraries are closed, a separate process is underway: more than 100 titles will be transferred from campus libraries for further review.

A spokesperson indicated officials are reviewing material in a way they haven't before to comply with a new state law taking effect Sept. 1. The House Bill 900 by Frisco Republican Rep. Jared Patterson – known as the READER Act – was signed into law by Gov. Greg Abbott. It aims to keep sexually explicit content away from children across nearly 9,000 Texas K-12 campuses.
Under the new law, “sexually explicit” books will be taken off shelves, and “sexually relevant” books will go through a first-of-its-kind ratings system before they're made available to students and will require parental consent.
In a Thursday interview with WFAA, FWISD Interim Library Director Dr. Ross Teller told WFAA district leaders hope to complete the review of roughly 100 books "as soon as we can."
The books under question have already been removed from shelves, according to a district spokesperson. "We are committed to having a safe and welcoming space for all students in our libraries," Teller said. "We're just concentrating on ensuring we have the most welcoming inviting and appropriate collection available. The Texas Library Association (TLA) has voiced concern over the READER Act. Shirley Robinson, executive director of the TLA, said the law will cause some “chaos and confusion” for librarians across the state.
“It’s going to take some time for everyone to figure out how this is going to work,” Robinson said earlier this summer. “There are going to be discrepancies in how it’s administered without very clear guidelines.”

I called the fwisd office and spoke to a man about how to remove books. He spoke for a while and he asked if there was a particular book I wanted removed. I asked if there were any holy bibles and he replied there was. I told him that’s the book that I would like to remove. I also told him that I was against banning books or burning books but I do not like other people telling people what they can read. He mentioned the stupid state law which targets sexually explicit content. He said the Bible definitely has sexual content especially Proverbs.

I also pointed out the mission statement and how can anyone be critical thinkers when there are those amongst us who want to do the thinking for everyone. He didn’t appear to like the situation he has been tasked with doing.




The mission of FWISD school library programs is to ensure that students and staff are:

effective users of ideas;
empowered to be critical thinkers,
enthusiastic readers, and
ethical users of information.

At the link you can fill out a form to object to books. I asked if the information we provide would be used against us and he assured me it was only so they could contact us.


Anyway fun morning.

Remember Inna Yashchyshyn, imposter posing as a Rothschild at Mar-a-Lago?




Lindsey Graham and the International Spy trump, posing with pictures and playing golf together. I wonder how many documents she saw or bought. Who knows?

With all the details from the indictment coming out, has really made me question Why didn’t they demand everything back and send feds sooner to seize the property of the government. And Why didn’t they search Bedmister?


Anyway here’s the article from 9 months ago



A second foreign national is being investigated by US authorities for gaining access to Mar-a-Lago, Donald Trump’s Florida resort which is at the center of an FBI investigation over missing classified documents, heightening fears over security lapses both during and after his presidency.

According to an article from the Organized Crime & Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP), a Ukrainian woman posing as a member of the Rothschild banking dynasty is under bureau investigation after infiltrating the private members club under a false pretense.

Inna Yashchyshyn, 33, allegedly lied to members that she was a Rothschild heiress and mingled with Trump, Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and others at Mar-a-Lago functions.

OCCRP, in conjunction with the Pittsburgh Gazette, reported that Yashchyshyn had demonstrated “the ease with which someone with a fake identity and shadowy background” could bypass security at Trump’s club.

Six North Texans have been named Regeneron Science Talent Search scholars


Since I saw a thread about eliminating science education from a school up north, I thought I’d post why science matters.

I saw this story last night and was so proud and also fascinated by their knowledge about these topics. Very smart and very talented. We need them!

All Ladies Figure Skating should protest and sue the ISO for Irreparable Harm


Every skater is now facing "Irreparable Harm" because Kamila Valieva has the added enhancement to out perform everyone else.


I think Kamila should do the right thing and withdraw. She can't win a medal and is denying every other skater who doesn't have to use banned and illegal substances to medal. Everyone else is now at a disadvantage.

Every event Kamila is now tainted. She is not that special. Just another doping cheater. I don't really care how old she is. She should not be allowed to compete with the others who follow the rules set forth by the Olympic committees.
