Shocker: Clint Eastwood ditches Trump for Bloomberg

Jordan Moreau reports for Variety, Feb. 22, 2020:

Longtime Republican Clint Eastwood is pulling support from Donald Trump in the 2020 election. In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, the actor-director signaled that he thinks a different candidate would be the better choice.

“The best thing we could do is just get Mike Bloomberg in there,” he said.

After endorsing Mitt Romney and famously delivering a speech at the 2012 Republican National Convention to an empty chair that represented Barack Obama, Eastwood never officially backed Trump. In a 2016 interview, he expressed displeasure with Trump and Hillary Clinton, saying there’s “much funny business on both sides of the aisle.”

He praised Trump at the time because he was “onto something” and “secretly everybody’s getting tired of political correctness, kissing up.”

“We’re really in a p—y generation. Everybody’s walking on eggshells. We see people accusing people of being racist and all kinds of stuff. When I grew up, those things weren’t called racist,” he said.

Now, he’s changed his tune a bit on Trump.

While he approves of “certain things” the president has done, he wishes that he would act “in a more genteel way, without tweeting and calling people names. I would personally like for him to not bring himself to that level,” he said.

Clint Eastwood will be 90 years old this May 31.

Florida Legislature passes abortion parental consent bill

Demorats are against this, of course, because it violates Rule #41.

From Yahoo: Girls under the age of 18 will have to get a parent’s permission before having an abortion under a bill passed by the Florida Legislature on Thursday that Gov. Ron DeSantis is expected to sign.

The House voted 75-43 largely along party lines for the legislation that expands a current law that requires a girl’s parents are notified before she can have an abortion. DeSantis asked lawmakers to send him the bill during his State of the State speech that kicked off the legislative session last month.

“What we are talking about is a child, and here were are talking about a child who is carrying a child,” said Republican Rep. Erin Grall, who sponsored the bill. “By including parents in this decision we empower the family. It is the critical backbone of our civilized society.”

The debate over the measure lasted nearly four hours.

The bill has a provision that will allow a girl to ask a judge for a waiver from the law in cases of abuse, incest or when involving a parent could cause more harm than allowing the procedure. But opponents argued that asking minors to negotiate the legal system when they are already scared and ashamed could drive them to illegal abortions.

“We are codifying into law that someone else can force a girl to have a child she does not want to have,” Democratic Rep. Susan Valdes said. “I worry that many girls will, when deprived access to a safe termination of pregnancy, take the risks of finding an unsafe, dangerous and untested method of terminating their pregnancies.”

She said that might include searching the internet for “mystery concoctions” in an attempt to end the pregnancy.

Democrats also said some girls might risk being thrown out of their homes or beaten if they tell their parents they’re pregnant. But Grall said that just because there are some bad parents, it doesn’t mean the rights of others to be part of the decision should be taken away.

“We hear the stories about the bad parent, the human trafficking, the intolerant parent, the abusive parent, the parent who will kill their child. I refuse to accept that we should diminish the rights of all parents in the raising of their children because of the acts of a few,” Grall said.

Republicans argued that children need a parent’s permission to go on a school field trip and can’t go to an R-rated movie without a parent or guardian, so it makes no sense to make a life-altering decision on their own.

“We require parental consent for a minor to get a driving learner’s permit because it is common sense. It is not common sense to suggest that getting a learner’s permit is a less significant life decision than a child getting an abortion,” Republican Rep. Ana Maria Rodriguez said. ”A parent guiding their children through major life decisions is a good thing.”

Florida will join 26 other states in requiring that at least one parent give written permission authorizing a doctor to terminate the pregnancy of a minor. Doctors who perform abortions without the parental consent of a girl under 18 would face up to five years in prison for a third-degree felony.

In 1979, the Florida Legislature enacted a similar parental consent law, but it was struck down a decade later by the Florida Supreme Court, which ruled that a woman’s right to privacy extended to pregnant minors. Bill supporters say the constitutional issue has been addressed in the current bill by including the judicial waiver and with a provision that would allow abortions in cases of medical emergencies without parental notification.

Once DeSantis signs the bill, it will become law July 1. It is certain to be challenged in court, but the current makeup off the state Supreme Court is overwhelmingly conservative.

Trump does a lap at Daytona

Only 2 Us Presidents have ever attended the Daytona 500.  George W. Bush and now Donald J. Trump.  This is just another example of how the president tries to stay connected with Americans while the Democrats fight among themselves with complaints of Bloomberg trying to “buy the election/presidency” or  contemplating Hillary Clinton as Bloomberg’s running mate.

“Trump takes Daytona 500 warm up lap in presidential limousine”

“President Donald Trump gave an election-year embrace to NASCAR and its fans Sunday when he became the second president ever to attend the Daytona 500. The presidential motorcade took to the track to join in a warm-up lap after he had told the crowd that the racers and their teams were competing “for pure American glory.”

“Following a recitation of the opening command, “Gentleman, start your engines,” Trump got into his black limousine for a ceremonial spin around Daytona International Speedway. He had joked moments earlier in a Fox interview that while as president, he was not allowed to drive his own car, ” I’m going to hop into one of these cars and I’m going to get into this race if possible. I love the idea.’’

How low will Democrats go?

It should be common knowledge by now that the Democrats have control of California,  People should understand that they do not plan on losing that control.  So they spend most of their time creating an environment that secures their needs while ignoring the needs of Californians.

In the past I have mentioned 2 ways the Democrats have “tweaked” election related laws/rules in California.  One was a change in Ballot harvesting which allowed   persons other than family members to collect and submit ballots.  The second changed how they verified votes that came in the mail after the polls have closed.

These changes only made it easier for people to commit voter fraud.   They had to have known this.  The only logical explanation is they did this because they were planning to exploit the new weaknesses they had just created, by making those two changes. Because of these changes, no election result  in California  should trusted.

Fast forward to today. While reading my mail I made a discovery.   It seems that the democrats have another trick up their sleeve.  This one being so shady that it cannot possibly be legal.

California Presidential Primary election is on Tuesday, March 3, 2020.  In the image is page 7 from the Official Voter Information Guide.  (The Guide is  what the state of California mails out to Californians).  At the top of the page  you will see in bold letters “How to vote for President”.  Below that it reads “Registered to vote as No Party Preference?”.   The next paragraph is problem.

“As a voter registered with No Party Preference, if you want to vote for U.S. President, you must request a primary ballot with presidential candidates from one of the following parties:”

  • American Independent Party
  • Democratic Party
  • Libertarian Party

 

CAELEC

Where it says “you must” is the problem.  Must can be defined as to be obliged to, have to, need to, required to, etc. It’s pretty obvious that this statement is telling people  registered with no party preference that they can only vote for one of those 3 choices.  This is a complete lie.  This state government lying to voters.   They are intentionally misleading voters.  It’s the same at the Secretary of States office.  Here is a link to view their version(same as this).  Click here

This is the same document that the media and various websites are promoting in California.  This is a huge problem.

California has almost 5,700,000 voters registered as No Party Preference.  That’s because of the states push to get people to register to vote.  Now we see why.  The get them signed up then lie to them by telling them they have only three choices.  Notice that Trump isn’t included in those choices.  Notice the Republican party is not one of those three choices.

voter

The truth is that those are not their only choices.  They can vote for Trump.  They just need to register as a republican to vote for him in the primaries.  That’s just for the primaries.    For the general election, they can stay registered as no party preference.  So you see, telling people that if they want to vote for president, “they must” pick one of the three is a complete lie.

At the bottom of the page you will see where they clean it up by saying that you have to register with one of the other parties if you want to vote for their candidate.  They conveniently left out the deadline date which is,  February 18, 2020.

I’ve also provided a page from a county voter guide.  You will notice that they changed the word “must” to “can”.  Plus they included the deadline.

stancountyinfo guide

It does not matter what it says about registering with another party at the lower part of the page.  The top where it says “must” has the biggest impact on people.  They intentionally lied.  The local media is promoting that lie. The damage is done.

I’ve always said the impeachment was a distraction and people should pay attention to what the democrats are doing in the background.  This is a good example.  The democrats are being shady.  That’s all the democrats do.

No election should be trusted in the hands of a democrat.  Nothing should be trusted in the hands of a democrat.  Anybody that lives in a state controlled by democrats should check their voter info guides.  Keep a close eye on the democrats in general.

Man drove van into Florida GOP voter-registration tent with 6 volunteers inside

The violent Left strikes again.

Yesterday, in Jacksonville, Florida, a man intentionally drove a van into a tent where six Republican volunteers were registering voters.

Miraculously, no one was hurt.

Duval County GOP tweeted:

Today in Jacksonville, Florida six Trump Campaign volunteers were intentionally targeted while registering voters.

At approximately 2:45 p.m. a multi-colored brown and gold van driven by what is described as a white male in his 20s or 30s, accelerated into a crowd of volunteers at the Kernan Village shopping center located at 11900 Atlantic Boulevard.

Thankfully, Republican volunteers narrowly avoided being struck by the accelerating van. The driver sped away after making an obscene gesture toward the crowd.

“We are outraged by this senseless act of violence toward our great volunteers,” said Duval GOP Chairman Dean Black. “The Republican Party of Duval County will not be intimidated by these cowards and we will not be silenced. I call on every Republican in our great city to stand up, get involved, and show these radicals that we will not be intimidated from exercising our Constitutional rights.”

The Republican Party of Duval County plans to redouble its efforts to register voters and will continue it’s fight with renewed intensity to re-elect President Donald Trump.

This is confirmed by The Florida Times-Union:

Jacksonville police say a driver intentionally crashed a van through a tent where Duval County GOP volunteers were registering voters Saturday afternoon.

Nobody was injured in the 3:45 p.m. incident at the Walmart Supercenter, 11900 Atlantic Boulevard, near Kernan Boulevard in the Sandalwood neighborhood, Lt. Larry Gayle of the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office told reporters at the scene.

Several Duval County GOP volunteers were working at the registration tent when a white man in his early 20s driving an older — possibly 1980s — brown van pulled up toward the tent.

He then drove through the tent, endangering the lives of the workers and damaging the tent and tables, Gayle said.

The driver then stopped, got out of the van and took a video of the scene before he “flipped off” the victims and fled, Gayle said.

President Donald Trump tweeted about the incident Saturday night: “Law Enforcement has been notified. Be careful tough guys who you play with!”

Because the investigation was in the early stage, police didn’t know the motive. However, detectives with the Sheriff’s Office Intelligence Unit were en route to the scene, Gaye said.

“We are investigating this as a aggravated assault,” Gayle said. “Several people were in the area and could have been seriously hurt.”

Gayle also said police are looking into the incident “as in reference to interruption of the political process.”

Anyone with information can contact the Sheriff’s Office at (904) 630-0500 or email JSOCrimeTips@jaxsheriff.org. To remain anonymous and receive a possible reward of up to $3,000, contact Crime Stoppers at (866) 845-TIPS.

Virginia Senate blocks Demonrat Gov. Northam’s gun-control bill

Since last November 6’s election that gave control of Virginia’s entire state government to Democrats, led by pro-abort Gov. Ralph Northam (D), Democrats have been on a tear to impose gun control. See:

On Monday, February 3, two Democrats in the State Judiciary Committee– state Sens. Creigh Deeds and Chap Petersen — joined Republicans to defeat a gun control bill proposed by Demonrat governor Northam.

Louis Casiano reports for Fox News that Northam’s bill would make it a felony to “recklessly leave a loaded, unsecured firearm” in a way that endangers a minor.

Another bill to ban so-called assault weapons like AR-15 rifles is also likely to be rejected.

The bill that’s been rejected by the State Judiciary Committee is one of eight that Northam has proposed for adoption, including bills limiting handgun purchases to once a month; universal background checks on gun purchases; and a red flag bill allowing authorities to temporarily take guns away from anyone deemed to be “dangerous” to themselves or others.

Some of Northam’s gun control bills have passed in the state’s Democrat-controlled General Assembly, which both chambers will hash out their differences in the coming weeks.

Stupid is as stupid does: 67% of Democrats trust ‘fake news’ CNN

The phrase “Stupid is as stupid does” was popularized by the movie Forrest Gump. It means “One’s actions indicate one’s level of stupidity (or intelligence).”

A new Pew Research Center survey found that, unsurprisingly, Democrats and Republicans differ in how trusting they are about the media.

The Oct. 29–Nov. 11, 2019 survey  asked 12,043 U.S. adults whether they trust the following 30 media outlets:

Not only are Democrats more trusting of the 30 media outlets, Democrats actually trust “fake news” CNN the most!

MASSIVE anti-Trump rally in D.C.!

Yesterday, @MrJones_tm tweeted this pic of a MASSIVE rally before the Capitol building (Congress) in Washington, DC, demanding that President Trump and Vice President Pence be removed.

Wow!

I’m shaking in my boots at the MASSIVE turnout!

In contrast, this was the turnout at the Second Amendment gun-rights rally at the state capitol in Richmond, VA, on Monday:

Curiously, the anti-Trump protestors seemed to be wearing masks.

Here are some hilarious tweets in response:

HUGE turnout!! I don’t know if I can sleep tonight….

wow, I can’t count them all.

Building momentum towards 2020 #BlueWave.

Adam Schiff’s staff taking a lunch break?

Boy that is as big as the Biden rallies

Hope they had extra crowd control.

We get more ppl than that in taco truck lines here in TX! LOL!

I wonder if the D.C. Metro had to run extra trains for this

It obviously wasn’t funded by Soros.

I’m surprised msm isnt saying over 1 million in attendance

I wonder if they can get a tight enough shot to make it look like a large crowd.

And they’ll still manage to leave more trash behind than the #2A patriots in VA did.
