Although legacy media is using the death, funeral, and pomp and circumstance of Senator John McCain (R-AZ) as fodder to whine about the Trump presidency, people of the flyover states have more important discussions on the table.
Not to say that McCain snubbing the president and his former running mate, Sarah Palin, from the great beyond wasn’t noticed – it just didn’t matter in the great scheme of all things important.
Land of Enchantment
The compound raided in the small community of Amalia, New Mexico has all but been destroyed – sparking conspiracy theorists to examine the facts of what transpired from the time the child was kidnapped from his mother in Georgia, to the Eighth District Judge, Emilio Chavez, releasing three of the five adults and dismissing all charges against them.
The adults, including the dead child’s father, considered Islamic extremists, effectively starved 11 other children while training them to be school shooters and “one time” terrorists seeking the attention of Allah and a bunch of virgins.
From the lack of evidence presented to the original Judge, Sarah Backus, to a late misfiling of a “10-day rule” for evidentiary hearing for appeals by State’s District Attorney Donald Gallegos and Assistant District Attorney Timothy Hasson, this all has New Mexicans wondering if the fix was in from the beginning.
Mom and Grandmother in Albuquerque, Roberta posted her shock on Facebook: “They are letting terrorists, child murderers and child abusers go free because of a due process time limit and failure to provide adequate evidence by the state’s attys.”
The intense blowback on the Eighth District judges has prompted Taos County Sheriff Jerry Hogrefe to post polite social media updates with a message to locals that all is being done, that can be, legally, but replying comments from locals varied.
From Craig: “This seems like it has some support from higher ups that want to see America destroyed. Time for civilians to boot up.”
But Chris said it best:
“The prosecutors and judges involved in this case have in every practical way given warrant and sanction to kidnapping, child abuse, murder, and terrorism. Murderers, kidnappers and terrorists are walking around free thanks to the complete and total incompetence and ideological bias of the New Mexico Courts. What a shame.”
The biggest chuckle this week in the Heartland was watching the alt-left legacy media attempt to redefine the word ‘monkey’ to fit neatly within their narrative. It all began in Florida during the aftermath of the primary as progressive Democrat and Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum came from behind to have his name placed on the ballot for governor.
The Republican victor, Trump backed Representative Ron DeSantis, wasted no time on the attack against the progressive when he spoke on Fox News about allowing the socialist movement to take root in the republic. His choice of words, that every politician is guilty of using, were quickly thrown in his face. What on earth did the DeSantis say? Well, just that the Sunshine State should not “monkey this up” by electing the socialist candidate.
And the loony left went absolutely bananas.
But there are calmer heads debating the reported slur. Tom, a Floridian transplanted from South Dakota, remarked on a Facebook chat, “Another election where something is twisted into racism by Dems so their base never thinks about actual issues.”
Followed by Pablo Molina not only pointing out the “race-card fear mongering” strategy, he also posted the definition of “monkey up”:
“monkey up – To hack together hardware for a particular task, especially a one-shot job. Connotes an extremely crafty and consciously temporary solution. Compare hack up, kluge up.”
Old Glory Upside Down
The folks in the Heartland know this country is divided and on the precipice of a civil war over life and liberty. A coordinated attack on the American way, an assault on the moral character of a nation, and a calculated attempt to dismantle the Constitution. Were Americans asleep as socialism infected our secular institutions, religious freedoms, while the dark debauchery of Hollywood became humanitarian causes? Perhaps we were. But, certainly no more.
On a long, windy Ohio gravel road, in a rural faming community, hours from anywhere, sits a 150-year-old farm house where chickens roam in the drive pecking at the ground. On the side yard, a row of pink rose bushes flank a wrap-around porch where a wooden swing sways in the breeze. It’s a bucolic rural scene. But in the front yard, an American flag hangs from a 15-foot metal pole – upside down.
Mr. Kerst is the owner of the farm and has lived in the house for 70 years. When asked why the flag was upside down he replied:
“Because we are under distress. Plain and Simple, and when people stop and ask me about my flag, I tell them to get off their behinds, allow no further insurgence of socialism within our nation, and vote Republican all the way this fall.”
And I have to tell you, there are a lot of Mr. Kersts in flyover country.
