Norman Rockwell in the 1940s: A View of the American Homefront”

Hits: 42

From the Catalina Museum for Art and History.

In 1942, Catalina Island was closed to tourism and shifted to support the American troops as a training center for the U.S. Maritime Service, the U.S. Coast Guard, the U.S. Army Signal Corps, and the Office of Strategic Service (O.S.S.).

Today, we give our respects to those who have fallen in the service to this great country. In honor of their sacrifice, we are pleased to announce that in 2022, the 80th anniversary of Catalina’s involvement in WWII, we will be hosting “Norman Rockwell in the 1940s: A View of the American Homefront”.

      

“Norman Rockwell in the 1940s: A View of the American Homefront” has been organized by the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, Massachusetts.

Gunfire erupts in Portland as Antifa protests Amir Locke shooting, woman killed and five wounded.

Hits: 15

The whole article is here.

Gunfire on Saturday night at a Portland, Ore., park where people had reportedly assembled to protest the officer-involved shooting of Amir Locke has allegedly claimed the life of one woman and wounded five others.

The incident occurred at about 8 p.m. at Normandale Park in the northeast part of the crime-ridden city around the time the march was set to begin. “The shooting took place near a park in Portland that has been the staging ground for a number of protests against police killings in recent years,” the New York Times recalled.

According to the Portland Police Bureau, “When officers arrived they located a female victim who was deceased. Additional shooting victims, two men and three women, were transported to area hospitals and their status is unknown at this time…Additional information will be released at the direction of investigators.”

 

Two suspects are reportedly in custody, and the investigation is ongoing. As part of a longer thread, tireless independent journalist Andy Ngo posted this video clip to Twitter:

 

Portland FM station KXL separately claimed that “Reports are that a neighbor in the area confronted the group about blocking traffic when the gunshots were exchanged.”

Fox 12 Oregon reporter Connor McCarthy posted this footage from the Portland crime scene:

 

Earlier this week, Portland CBS affiliate KOIN indicated that “Gun violence continues to plague Portland after it escalated to record highs in 2021,” which included six shootings between Thursday night and Friday morning. “Authorities recently told KOIN 6 News the first month of 2022 outpaced January 2021, already setting a dark precedent for the year.”

Last year, a record-setting 90 murders occurred in the Democrat-controlled city that sought to partly defund the police before reality caused officials to reverse course.

My two cents. Why my body my choice doesn’t fly for either side.

Hits: 38

Why my body my choice doesn’t fly for either side. The goal here isn’t to piss people off. Hopefully the folks who read what I write here get it. We have been hearing that a lot lately. I’m sick of it Let’s look at what’s causing all this noise. First let’s look at why the left uses it.

My body my choice.  Most of the time yes. I have a bad hair day or what ever. So the baby must die. Why? The fetus shows a heart beat. That sounds human to me. It’s the baby’s body now. So because of financial or some other reason the baby must die? Those on the left say that man and the courts have no say so. But yet they go to a male dominated Supreme Court that says the court belongs in the bedroom. Roe V Wade. Why the right uses it.

Those on the Right. My body my choice. Most of the time yes. No mask no vaccine. Yes and at times No. If you have the virus, you should mask up when amongst people inside. Doesn’t protect you,  protects me and others who don’t want it. Not approved, rushed through. When the one gets approved, it’s some diabolical scheme to kill us all. Come on get real. Y’all get your magnets out. Really?

In closing, both sides are going overboard on this. Babies don’t need to die and the vaccines weren’t put out there to kill us. Both sides make money off of this.

What say you?

She’s back. What part of irrelevant doesn’t she get? Michelle Obama again comes out in support of hate groups. Supports BLM rioting, protesting, and looting.

She’s back. What part of irrelevant doesn’t she get? Michelle Obama again comes out in support of hate groups. Supports BLM rioting, protesting, and looting. She’s putting out the Le-Bron narrative that all blacks will die if they’re out driving and stopped by the police.

Why does she even get any press notice? So many folks still remember the eight years of racism, bigotry, and hate speech we got from the Obama-Biden administration.

Wait, I own the company why would anyone want me to work? That’s it, I quit. David Hogg Leaves Pillow Company He Launched to Compete with Mike Lindell.

Hits: 99

Wait, I own the company why would anyone want me to work? That’s it, I quit. David Hogg Leaves Pillow Company He Launched to Compete with Mike Lindell. Seems just like yesterday that Hogg said he was going to be an entrepreneur and put the pillow guy out of business. That didn’t last long. Wasn’t he some phony from some shooting in Florida? Bottom line is that he can make more money protesting than working. SMH.

 

Parkland shooting survivor and pillow entrepreneur David Hogg announced Saturday he is permanently stepping away from his company, Good Pillow. The reason for his departure was due to “personal commitments,” including taking the time to “focus on studies in college” and “advance the gun violence prevention movement.”

Taking to Twitter, he said: “Effective immediately, I have resigned and released all shares, any ownership and any control of Good Pillow LLC.”

Throw it up against the wall. Are people starting to see that Biden was part of his sons doings?

Hits: 24

Throw it up against the wall. Are people starting to see that Biden was part of his sons doings?  When this first came out with Tony B., I thought that it was going nowhere. Just like the other Ukrainian garbage. Remember they had Joe on tape, and nothing was done.

But now more and more media outlets are running with this. And Tony B. is no Rudy G. I just hope that it’s not too late. What if Biden wins and here it’s all true. Joe goes to jail and Hunter ends in rehab, and the nail in the coffin? Harris is President.

I don’t think that the old ticker could take it. That would be terrible. But enough. Let’s have your thoughts.

Throw it up against the wall. See what sticks. Disqus up votes gone. This will be a new feature I’m going to try on the weekends. I’ll throw something out and see if it sticks. You can also make suggestions for articles.

Our first one will be the disappearance of up votes. I’m estimating that I’ve lost over 250,000 up votes. Now I still show over 100,000. Some folks show negative numbers, and many show 0. Tell us what you lost.
