This gives many people on the Westside the sadz. You think California’s job-killer regulations won’t fly here? Just wait. Yes, there are bad grits and good grits. Lewis, may he RIP, had many opinions about this. And there was great rejoicing. Too close to really being the news… Gut-wrenching, indeed.

That’s more than any year since Obama;s last year in office when there was a net increase of 20% more than that, or the even higher net increases in preceding Obama years.

Dershowitz. Another new rule lowering the bar—Presidents can’t be impeached for demanding political favors, including from foreign governments, in any circumstance..

I guess we libz have been opwned again. By the way, if canceling the election is deemed in the national interest, it’s OK, right?

Trump Hypothetical President to President call: “We’re glad you’ve offered to soon send CDC experts to China to assist with the coronavirus.” Xi Jinping “I would like you to do us a favor though….” Perfect words, so it’s only natural they be used over and over.
