(Chuck Muth) – President Donald Trump was photographed wearing a face mask in public for the first time yesterday. And the Fake News Industrial Complex is having a cow over it.
For the record, the President was at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center visiting wounded soldiers, some of whom “just got off the operating table.”
“I think it’s a great thing to wear a mask,” the President said. “They have a time and a place.”
Time and place. That does NOT include walking down the street with no one within 60 feet of you, let alone six feet. And certainly not while driving around alone in your car with the windows up and the A/C on.
Yet I see people foolishly doing this every day simply because “Sisolak says so,” not as a virus prevention measure. And if that’s what you choose to do, have at it. But leave the rest of us alone.
Sorry, But Not All Government Workers are Created Equal
Remember, it was Democrat Gov. Steve Sisolak who forcefully segregated us in the private sector into “essential” and “non-essential” categories when he started the #SisolakShutdown.
Alas, no such segregation has occurred among government workers.
And because Sisolak refused to impose layoffs on non-essential government workers way back in March when he screwed the rest of us, sending hundreds of thousands into the unemployment line, we’re now facing a $1.2 billion budget hole.
To address the hole, Sisolak and his enablers in the Legislature – Democrat Senate Majority Leader Nicole “Government Employee” Cannizzaro and Democrat Assembly Speaker Jason “Government Employee” Frierson – are pushing to “furlough” all state workers one day a month.
This is stupid.
Why should government workers who are legitimately “essential” – such as law enforcement and front-line health care workers – be required to take off one day a month without pay rather than laying off completely “non-essential” workers?
Similarly – and this issue might yet come up down the road – another way to balance the budget would be to reduce the salaries of government workers, especially since many are being paid far more than what similar jobs pay in the private sector.
But again, across-the-board pay cuts would be wrong. Why should an essential employee have his or her pay cut instead of applying it to only non-essential employees? Makes no sense.
Dear Nevadans: You voted to put Democrats completely in charge of our state government. How’s that working out for us?
The John Hancock Scandal
Defenders of all-mail balloting – including nincompoop liberal blogger Jon Ralston – keep telling us that “procedures are in place” to prevent ballot fraud. That includes, they tell us, procedures to make sure the signature on mail-in ballots matches the signature on file from when the voter registered to vote.
I have asked all along exactly what those procedures are without explanation.
Well, in his Sunday column Victor Joecks reveals the secret. No, they are not digitally scanned. They are visually compared by fallible human beings with no expertise or training in recognizing forgeries.
But I still don’t know if EVERY ballot is inspected or just some sampling based on unspecified criteria.
Regardless, Victor explains how he and some others intentionally, but legally, submitted ballots with decidedly non-matching signatures to the Clark County Election Department in last month’s primary…
“The county’s signature verification process didn’t work,” Victor reported. “The county flagged only my ballot — the most obvious signature that didn’t match. But the other ballots, featuring printed names and signatures that didn’t match those on file, all went through.”
One should also consider what Nevada Deputy Secretary of State Wayne Thorley told the Las Vegas Review-Journal a couple of weeks ago…
“The claims that there’s no fraud whatsoever in the system, that’s not true. Fraud does happen…”
Keep this in mind as the Democrat-controlled Nevada Legislature, in the ongoing special session, tries to change state law to mandate mail-in balloting for November’s general election.
And here’s one last thing on this to consider…
If it’s “secure” to allow voters to sign a ballot and mail it in to vote in an election, why isn’t it secure to allow voters to, say, download and sign a “Recall Sisolak” petition and mail it in, hmm?
The Enemy Within
At the start of last week’s special session of the Legislature, Democrats rammed through a rule change which unconstitutionally allows legislators to do the jobs they were elected to do remotely. Meaning they could be in Bora Bora and cast votes even though the state Constitution clearly requires they be in Carson City.
Republicans rightly objected.
Then someone who has been in the legislative building tested positive for the Kung Flu. That person has yet to be identified, but word on the street is that it might be newly-appointed Democrat Assemblywoman Kasina “Government Employee” Boone.
In response, a dirty dozen gaggle of legislators reportedly decided to phone it in on Saturday. Eleven of the twelve were Democrats. Only one Republican joined the D’s, thus giving them “bi-partisan” cover for meeting unconstitutionally…
Assemblywoman Jill Tolles (Reno-RINO).
Thanks, Jill. You seldom fail to disappoint.
Dogs Serving Two Masters
Nevada Policy Research Institute (NPRI) filed a new lawsuit this week seeking to stop government employees from unconstitutionally serving in the Legislature.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal published an excellent editorial today explaining why this practice needs to end. Click here to read it.
As the RJ notes, there are currently “nine state lawmakers are serving in Carson City in violation of the Nevada Constitution’s separation of powers clause.” Among the nine are the Democrat Senate Majority Leader and the Democrat Assembly Speaker.
But there are two Republicans, as well: State Sen. Heidi “Government Employee” Gansert and Assemblyman Glen “Government Employee” Leavitt.
Barring government employees from serving in the Legislature is not only the right thing to do, but in years gone by was a major GOP platform issue.
As such, and especially in light of the NPRI lawsuit, Gansert and Leavitt should do one of two things: Either quit their government jobs or quit the Legislature.
Don’t hold your breath waiting on either to make such a principled decision. They’re gonna have to be pried out with a crowbar along with the Democrats.
* Don’t fall for all the reports you’re seeing and hearing that Sleepy Joe Biden is beating President Trump. This is all part of the Democrats’ “voter suppression” campaign which is being coordinated with the Fake News Industrial Complex.
* Dear parents, especially in Clark County: Stop fretting over what’s going to happen to your kids’ school in the fall. Instead, make the decision NOW to permanently homeschool your kids and simply take them out of the public school system entirely. You won’t be alone. Check this out.
I know the prospect can be a little scary at first, but trust me…you CAN do it. Gia and I did…and both of us only have high school diplomas. For help getting started, go to: riseresourcecenter.org.
* As they say, you can’t beat somebody with nobody. So who among Republicans will run against Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak in 2022? Well, word on the street is that former U.S. Sen. Dean “Never Trump” Heller is already laying track.
What a disaster that would be! All but assures four more years for the Most Inept Governor in America.
Also heard through the grapevine is that casino entrepreneur Anthony Marnell III – who built and successfully operated the M Resort in Las Vegas – is putting feelers out. Now THAT’S something Republicans and all Nevadans could get enthused about.
* Democrats don’t need any Republican votes in the State Assembly to pass a tax hike, but they do need at least one in the State Senate. Most likely to sell out (again): Sen. Joe Hardy.
He’s term-limited and can’t run in 2022…and in the past he’s never met a tax he wouldn’t hike. He was a “yes” on the big 2003 hike and “yes” again for the huge 2015 hike.
But keep you eyes on Sen. Ben “Blue Dog” Kieckhefer, as well.
* The Clark County Democrat Party has reportedly been taken over by the “Bernie Bros” and other far-left cuckoos. The LVRJ reported earlier this week that the party chair “and a handful of executive board and committee heads have resigned.”
If Republicans in Nevada were smart, they’d…
Oh, never mind.
* Wanna know what “defunding the police” would look like if imposed in Las Vegas. Check this out.
Instead of dialing 911 if ever in need of help, you’ll blow a whistle to summon a “civilian patrol.” But only on Tuesdays. And only between the hours of 7:00 and 9:00 pm. And only “near the area of Kianga Isoke Palacio Park.”
I feel safer already.
* Overheard in Carson City this week: “If (California Gov. Gavin) Newsom farts, (Nevada Gov. Steve) Sisolak is the first to know.”
* It’s been a while since I pointed out that former Assemblyman Mark “Sure Would” Sherwood is a blithering RINO idiot who would be out of his depth in a parking lot puddle. That is all.
* Who elected Dr. Fauci president? I must have missed something.
FAMOUS LAST WORDS
“Imagine how pathetic and self-hating you must be if u wake up every morning and think to yourself, ‘I can’t be successful or happy until the white man gives me something and tells me my life matters.’ This loser mentality explains the leftist angst we see festering all around us.” – Samantha Chang
“I’m struggling financially. My business I’ve run for 10 years is about to shut down. I don’t know if I’ll have a roof over our head this time next month, but I just donated $50 to the Trump campaign. That’s how important it is that he wins in November.” – Michael Barden
