The Gateway Pundit reported:
Dallas hair salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced Tuesday to seven days in jail and fined $7,000 for opening her business Salon a la Mode to customers last week in defiance of COVID-19 Chinese coronavirus lockdown orders.
Luther’s court appearance was livestreamed. Judge Eric Moye demanded Luther apologize to elected officials.
“The judge told Shelley Luther she could avoid jail time if she apologized, admitted she was wrong, and agreed to close her hair salon until it was allowed to open.”
This judge Moye is black and an Obama loyalist, while the salon owner is a white woman and she is being punished for wanting to feed her kids and help out her employees. On the other hand, there was a massive house party in Chicago with hundreds of teenagers, but no arrests were made for virus violations since all of the attendees were black.
Thus even in times of crisis, political bias and anti-white racism takes its toll.
Meanwhile in Ector County, Texas, the sheriff’s office sent out an armed SWAT team in military vehicles to break up a peaceful protest at Daddy Zane’s Bar in West Odessa. The bar had reopened saying “all businesses are essential!”
The Ector County SWAT Team arrested 8 people including the bar owner Gabrielle Ellison.
At the same time a small business owner stopped by his shop to collect some items to clean his home. The lights were off and the sign said closed.
That’s when six armed local police barged into the business to punish the owners. The police took their business license.
Friends, this is sick, and these are some of the horrible outcomes of a virus that was intentionally launched on the world by communist China. Now American police are doing the dirty work for China in harassing, arresting and punishing decent Americans.
This is what the left does to our most productive citizens. Meanwhile illegal immigrant rapists, murderers and child molesters are on a long list of social miscreants who are routinely freed by leftist judges.
Democrats are sick people. Very sick.
Trump Popularity Soars!
National Review reported:
President Trump’s approval rating hit an all-time high in a Gallup survey released on Friday (May 1), with 49 percent of respondents approving of his performance versus 47 percent disapproving.
The results continue a wide swing in polling for Trump, who garnered a 43 percent approval rating two weeks ago.
“Most of the variation in Trump’s recent job approval rating is among independents,” Gallup said. “In the current poll, 47% of independents approve of the job he is doing as president, the highest Gallup has measured for the group to date. 93% of Republicans and 8% of Democrats approve of the job Trump is doing.”
This is amazing. 49% approval is excellent, and easily good enough for re-election. It is also important to remember that Gallup tends to downplay Trump’s numbers anyway by rigging its poll, as most polls do, for instance by surveying more Democrats than Republicans. To show how wrong Gallup has been, Newsweek reported on November 1, 2016, one week before the election:
A new Gallup survey released on Tuesday found that 32 percent of respondents think that Trump possesses the personality and leadership qualities necessary for someone to be president, compared to 51 percent for Clinton. “Voters rate Trump worse than any other presidential candidate in Gallup’s records on having the personality and leadership qualities a president should have,” said Gallup
It is also important to remember that Trump does not poll well in the first place; many voters will not even admit in private to a pollster that they support Trump. So you can always add a few points for Trump to any poll to get Trump’s real numbers.
Meanwhile look at this from National Review, which is an anti-Trump publication:
Last week officials including Trump-campaign manager Brad Parscale, adviser Jared Kushner, and Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna McDaniel presented the president with internal campaign polls showing him falling behind Biden in key swing states, the Washington Post reported. Advisers showed Trump the polls as part of an effort to convince him to stop or scale back his presence in the daily White House coronavirus briefings.
This is certainly a fake story. If it was printed in The Washington Post, then we know that it is surely fake news intended to hurt Trump. How would the Post know what happened at a private meeting at the White House?
Answer: They didn’t. Nikitas3.com believes that they fabricated this story, just like they fabricated the fake Russia collusion hoax for two years as if it were true.
Most of the Fake News media, including most polls, are heavily biased against president Trump. The only thing he has going for him is the majority of the American people!
Nikitas3.com predicts that Trump will be re-elected easily.
Update: President Trump won the electoral votes in Michigan in 2016. It was the first time that a Republican had won those votes since 1988. Nikitas3.com was predicting that Trump was going to win Michigan in 2020 even before the Chinese virus crisis hit. Now I am even more sure of it. Why?
Because the Democrat governor of Michigan is going so extreme in her lockdown of the state that voters are angry. In other words, her actions have galvanized the Trump coalition. Nikitas3.com believes that Trump will campaign vigorously on that issue to win Michigan, and that a majority of Michigan voters will express their anger by supporting Trump in November.
Is Virus Being Intentionally Spread around US?
Fox News reported:
Hundreds of meat inspectors throughout the U.S. have been diagnosed or exposed to the coronavirus and at least three have died, according to a report on Tuesday.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) told CBS News this week that 145 employees were diagnosed with the coronavirus and an additional 130 are currently under self-quarantine as a precaution due to possible infection.
The three who died were based in New York, Chicago and Mississippi, according to the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE), a union that represents food inspectors in the U.S.
Fox also reported:
Almost 900 workers at a Tyson Foods plant in Indiana have tested positive for the coronavirus, according to a report on Wednesday.
Dean Banks, president of Tyson Foods, said the company is working with Matrix Medical, a clinical services company, that will ensure coronavirus is not spreading in plants where it has been detected.
“That gives us the team that we need to come in and make sure that we put food on the American table,” Banks said on “Fox & Friends” Friday morning.
The Tyson plant located in Logansport, Ind., has seen 890 of its 2,200 employees test positive in just under a week — more than 40 percent of its workforce. It’s one of several Tyson plants across the country that have voluntarily closed due to virus outbreaks.
It is interesting to note that this virus has struck so many meat-processing plants. We need to find out if this virus is being spread intentionally by Chinese/leftist agents who are trying to disrupt not only our economy but our food supply.
Cuomo goes Further Off the Deep End
If you have been following the saga of New York state in the coronavirus crisis, perhaps you have heard the governor Andrew Cuomo reporting every day on the crisis.
The left-wing media adore Cuomo. He is a known narcissist (a typical Democrat) and he does everything to aggrandize himself. He loves to hear himself talk. He talks very slowly so that his low-IQ New York City voters can understand him, along with all of his voters who don’t speak much English.
His performance in the virus crisis has been horrible. He has acted like a panicky girl. For instance he predicted at the beginning of the outbreak that the state would need 40,000 ventilators, but it only used 5,000. President Trump ordered the Navy hospital ship Comfort to dock at New York City to take on sick New Yorkers after Cuomo begged for help, but the boat was not really needed and it has gone back to Virginia.
Then it got deadly. Cuomo ordered that nursing homes admit sick virus patients rather than sending them to hospitals. This spread the disease all over the nursing homes, killing thousands. This is going to be a major scandal against Cuomo if he ever seeks the White House.
The stories go on and on. And it gets absurdly worse. Cuomo pleaded with health-care workers from all over America to go to New York to help save the city from the virus, something which Nikitas3.com recommended against. I recommended that workers stay home and take care of their own states and let arrogant New York take care of itself. Pix11.com reported about workers who did go to New York:
Health care workers that came to New York to help fight the coronavirus pandemic at its epicenter will have to pay state taxes, according to the governor.
He addressed the issues Tuesday at a news conference.
“We’re not in a position to provide any subsidies right now because we have a $13 billion deficit,” Gov. Andrew Cuomo said. “So there’s a lot of good things I’d like to do, and if we get federal funding, we can do, but it would be irresponsible for me to sit here looking at a $13 billion deficit and say I’m gonna spend more money, when I can’t even pay the essential services.”
Even though the state government asked thousands of people to come to New York from out of state to help fight coronavirus, they will have to pay New York state taxes, even on income they might make from their home states that they’re paid while in New York.
This sounds unbelievable, but you will believe it if you know the Golden Rule: Socialists are never, ever grateful for anything. They will always exploit you and then stab you in the back and toss you to the curb when they are done taking advantage of you. They are selfish people. Just look at the massive corruption and greed in the Democrat politics of our cities and you understand it.
French Govt. Exploits Virus to Bully Air France
Breitbart News reports:
The French government has demanded that its national airline Air France embrace Green ideology and cancel all domestic flights to receive a government bailout.
French Minister of the Economy Bruno Le Maire said the airline, which is struggling like many others due to the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic, would be eligible for a loan of up to ($8 billion US) only if it became the greenest airline in the world.
“It involves the elimination of domestic flights, and quite frankly, when you can make the train journey in less than two and a half hours, taking a plane is not justified. It should not be a transitional measure but a definitive measure,” Mr Le Maire told broadcaster France Inter on Monday.
“We want a low-carbon, state-of-the-art economy. I think we can make this crisis a unique opportunity to redefine what we want for our economy and give ourselves new economic ambition,” he said.
This is typical of how the ‘greenie’ left is exploiting the virus crisis. Yet air travel is much more efficient than train travel. Nikitas3.com has studied railroads for decades and I have calculated that passenger trains weight 5 to 15 times as much per passenger than airplanes, since airplanes are designed to be lightweight and trains are very heavy. And you waste energy by moving all of that extra weight.
Passenger rail travel is a 19th century technology that ‘greenies’ promote relentlessly because it is a form of government-subsidized travel that socialists control through government spending and by telling citizens when and where they can travel. And control is what socialists crave more than anything.
Europe’s passenger trains are all heavily subsidized. They could not exist without massive taxpayer support. On the other hand, many European passenger airlines are profit-making companies that are wildly popular for travel around the Continent.
The ‘greenies’ love to say that Europeans rely on their passenger trains, but that is false. Europeans fly and drive almost as much as Americans do. The only reason that their passenger train system still exists is through steep government subsidies and artificially high taxes on gasoline.
Today Europe has two separate taxpayer-funded passenger train systems, both of which are very expensive and inefficient to operate. There is the traditional system laid out in the 19th century and then there are these modern high-speed train lines which run on separate tracks at higher speeds.
Spain’s high-speed AVE system carries notoriously low passenger loads but Spanish taxpayers are on the hook permanently for the cost of the system.
NY Times Reporter Wants Biden Elected Even if he is a Sexual Assaulter
Breitbart News reported:
Martin Tolchin, a founder of Politico and former New York Times correspondent in Washington, DC, published a letter to the editor of the Times Tuesday calling for a Joe Biden “coronation” regardless of claims of sexual assault.
The letter came in response to a recent Times editorial calling for the Democratic National Committee to investigate claims by Tara Reade, a former Senate staffer, who claims Biden assaulted her in 1993.
Tolchin wrote that he did not want Reade’s claims investigated — or anything else about Biden — because all he wanted was to see Trump defeated in November.
The letter, in full, follows:
I totally disagree with this editorial. I don’t want an investigation. I want a coronation of Joe Biden. Would he make a great president? Unlikely. Would he make a good president? Good enough. Would he make a better president than the present occupant? Absolutely. I don’t want justice, whatever that may be. I want a win, the removal of Donald Trump from office, and Mr. Biden is our best chance.
Suppose an investigation reveals damaging information concerning his relationship with Tara Reade or something else, and Mr. Biden loses the nomination to Senator Bernie Sanders or someone else with a minimal chance of defeating Mr. Trump. Should we really risk the possibility?
It is amazing how much Democrats say that “We believe all women…” but that that has suddenly evaporated when a Democrat is accused.
