JOE BIDEN SAYS HE WILL END FOSSIL FUELS AND FRACKING And if you're the sort to say "oh, he didn't say THAT" because he's now trying to walk it back, watch this please, I'll wait.

Skip to the :25 mark to see him lie through his teeth to the Western Pennsylvania Oil workers. I'll wait.

Weird that this Fox Business reporter gave Biden cover by saying this in her "news" article:

“Biden has promised to abolish the production of American oil, coal, shale and natural gas laying waste to the economies of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Texas, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Colorado and New Mexico, destroying those states,” Trump falsely stated during his speech at the Republican National Convention last week.

I'm sorry but isn't that what he is doing when he PROMISES to a young woman that he was going to "end fossil fuels"? Why is this controversial? The man said it REPEATEDLY and it's on tape and there is no denying it. A vote for Biden is a vote to kill 100,000 jobs in Colorado. From Colorado Peak Politics:

In Colorado, that means eliminating more than 100,000 jobs tied to the energy industry, $600 million in severance taxes supporting schools, and tens of billions from local economies across the state.

THE FIRST VIDEO FROM THE STEAMBOAT INSTITUTE FREEDOM CONFERENCE And this one is a GREAT one with Charlie Kirk and Kelsey Bolar talking about college campuses and free speech.

FOX 31 HAS DONE A HALF HOUR SHOW ON ELIJAH MCCLAIN'S DEATH And it's very compelling and creates a big question which is why police officers did more than stop and question him. Watch it in it's entirety, it's divided into sections with commercials in it. It certainly appears that the officers were not trained or prepared to deal with someone

This is a tragedy and someone needs to be held responsible for this young man's death. At a bare minimum the EMTs who gave him a lethal dose of ketamine need to face some sort of something. This is tragic.

YOU'RE SLEEP IN A CESSPOOL OF BACTERIA If you're the squeamish type you might want to skip this article about the fact that your mattress and pillow are holding more bacteria than a toilet seat. This is one of those times when you CAN KNOW TOO MUCH. I happen to subscribe to the notion that we need to be exposed to bacteria on a regular basis to keep our immune system's hopping. Or you can buy a mattress protector at Innomax, whatever works for you.

AND THAT JUNK FOOD YOU'RE EATING IS LITERALLY AGING YOU We all have these nifty little cells called telomeres which start out nice and long and shrink and shrivel as we age. Some people have prematurely shortened telomeres for a variety of reasons and scientists who study aging are focusing in on telomeres are valuable markers of how we are aging. This study showed that when your diet is full of highly processed fake foods, you are shortening your telomeres DRAMATICALLY. Once in a while garbage food is okay, but don't make it an everyday all the time thing or you're aging yourself unnecessarily!

DICTIONARY.COM IS WOKE And they've added a bunch of new woke words to their repertoire. I don't care about this much, as it's the Dictionary's job to evolve with the language, even if I eyeroll at some of it.


KIDS SAYING THE DARNDEST THINGS Because kids are awesome.

BEN AND JERRY'S HAS A NEW PODCAST ON HOW RACIST WE ARE And you can read about how groundbreaking this is here if you want. I don't want. Ben and Jerry of Ben and Jerry's fame have always been very progressive and their company has been engaged in social activism really since it's inception so they are ahead of the corporate virtue signaling game. Good for them, I just don't care.

SCHOOL BOARD RACES MATTER MORE THAN ANY OTHER RACES And it's stories like this one out of California that demonstrate why people on the right need to get serious about paying attention to what our children are being indoctrinated with on a daily basis. From the Wall Street Journal article on the new California state ordered curriculum:

The model curriculum now on the education department’s website says the course should “build new possibilities for post-imperial life that promotes collective narratives of transformative resistance.” Yes, this is a course for K-12 students. It suggests teachers provide “examples of systems of power, which can include economic systems like capitalism and social systems like patriarchy.” Students can then be taught “the four ‘I’s of oppression”—ideological, institutional, interpersonal and internalized.
The state guidance includes more than 200 pages of approved course outlines. Some of these seem to mandate student political activities, potentially raising First Amendment concerns. “Students acquire tools to become positive actors in their communities to address a contemporary issue and present findings in a public forum,” says one outline. Among the approved topics: “Racism, LGBTQ rights, immigration rights, access to quality health care, income inequality,” and so on. What about the fifth “I” of indoctrination?
It’s not a coincidence that many radical left movements are infused with anti-Semitism. They posit theories of control by shadowy capitalist groups that often echo anti-Semitic conspiracy theories. One course outline tips its hat at this. “Students will write a paper detailing certain events in American history,” it says, “that have led to Jewish and Irish Americans gaining racial privilege.”

This is what passes for a curriculum these days, are you paying attention to what is being taught in our local schools?

THE DHS SECRETARY PUTS THE PORTLAND MAYOR ON NOTICE By sending a letter saying that if Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler can't get his city under control the Federal Government will have no choice but to roll in and do it for them. Since the mob is coming for Wheeler now, perhaps he'll put politics aside and ask for help. It's going to be super tough to blame Trump for the violence in Portland if they keep turning away his offers to help.

FOUR WEIRD LITTLE TRENDS THAT COULD BE GOOD NEWS FOR TRUMP IN NOVEMBER We've talked about how polling is a disaster because people are afraid to admit they are voting for Trump, but this article says hold up, things might not be as bad for Trump as they seem to be. Read it here.

ESPECIALLY IF TRUMP'S CONVENTION BUMP WITH BLACK VOTERS HOLDS This is ASTOUNDING to me and I'm not sure how accurate it really is, but DANG the convention apparently turned a lot of heads with Black folks. Or they are tired of the rich white kids coming to their communities to tear them up before they leave. But if Trump gets 24% of the Black vote, it will be dang near impossible for Biden to win. I guess they ain't black as Joe Biden said, amiright?

COLORADO'S COVID HOSPITALIZATIONS ARE DOWN And in a very manageable place so I'm sure we can loosen restrictions on businesses, right?
