Editor’s Note: While the media and other leftist elites ignore the millions of folks living in “flyover” states, they do so at their own peril; it was this silent majority that put President Trump in the White House. Each week, Liberty Nation gives voice to the hard-working heartlanders who are silent no more.
The joy and crispness in the air of a middle America autumn were slightly offset by the ongoing surprises from Mother Nature and the most dramatic year on record in recent memory. Ah, 2020: With only three months or so to go, the October surprise arrived early. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg – a judicial icon – passed away, Black Lives Matter and Antifa have been put on notice in Seattle by a notorious pimp, and no one can seem to find the other half of the Biden ticket. And there’s still another week left of September!
What’s not to love about American politics?
RIP Judge Ginsburg
Flyover folks were saddened by the news of Justice Ginsburg’s passing from complications of pancreatic cancer – but certainly not surprised. The old gal defeated terminal illnesses one-by-one over the years and only missed one oral argument last November in her storied career, but the ravages of time and disease were bound to take their toll. And they finally did: For the woman who would not step down for President Barack Obama and kept the current president popping antacids, RBG enjoyed nearly rock star status eliciting “May God bless her soul,” and “She can finally rest after a lifetime of work,” from the good folks in the not so silent majority.
Until this little nugget of weird was released and flooded the media: “My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new President is installed.” According to RBG’s granddaughter, this was her last request.
No one in the heartland bought one word of it – even if the word “fervent” was used. Jenny Huff from Simpsonville, KY, explained:
“I doubt this really was her dying wish! Typical Democratic desperate maneuver. I don’t believe this anyway shape or form. Was it recorded? If not, why wasn’t it? Ginsburg knew she was dying months ago why didn’t she mention this out right before?”
One would think that the dying declaration would’ve been recorded for the history books at the very least. And RBG should know that dying wishes – fervent or not – are no reason to delay filling a Supreme Court seat.
2020 Was Just Not Weird Enough So Far
In lieu of funding more police to get the streets of Seattle under control, the esteemed leaders of the city are instead forking over $150,000 a year to a former pimp to act as their street czar formally.
Andre Taylor – AKA Gorgeous Dre – accepted the position and is working as a partner through his own non-profit, Not This Time. Taylor is also somewhat of a reality star after having a role in the documentary American Pimp. The man is an enigma. As he recently told reporters, “Me, as a black man has the right to be paid for my genius or for whatever my organization can provide. Black people as a whole have not been in a place to be compensated for their genius or their work for a very, very long time.”
Andre has not been paying attention. Anywho, genius aside, flyover folk aren’t too keen on exchanging police for pimps. As Brad Brooks from Carencro, LA asked: “Where’s the feminists? This guy admits to making a living enslaving woman in the sex trade, and Seattle hires him as a representative. The left is so crazy, you can’t even dream this stuff up!”
Where are those #MeToo people?
Where Are the Democrats?
As news reports have shown, the Democratic Party’s nominee for president is safely ensconced in his basement fort, swinging at scripted softball questions lobbed by sympathetic organizations and media outlets. But where is number two on the ticket?
Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) is nowhere to be found. Not in public. She isn’t answering live questions from reporters or stumping for candidate Biden. What gives? As one progressive in Indiana – who demands anonymity – said, “Where are Biden and Harris? Trump and Pence are everywhere.”
Well, it’s 2020, and we had sharks hanging in utility lines shortly after a hurricane down south. What did you expect?
