Insanity reigns today. Trump was rushed to an underground bunker Friday night. Yesterday he declared, in response to domestic actions, that he would designate ANTIFA a terrorist organization — which he cannot do because it is not foreign. The U.S. can prosecute terrorist acts but cannot designate a domestic organization as a terrorist organization.
The United States of America has no legal authority to designate *any* domestic entities as “terrorist organizations.” https://t.co/NniZjEwaJl

Innocent shopkeepers are beaten as celebrities and Biden staffers ostentatiously offer to bail out those arrested in the riots.
Wondering which celebrities would like to bail out these fellas?https://t.co/1IigqIjYig

Never mind the fact that many of the protesters are peaceful and are actually angry at the people, which in some cases are white punks on skateboards, who are vandalizing and looting — and in many cases protesters are fighting to prevent the looting and vandalism.

No matter; these knucklehead celebrities and Biden staffers still want the worst elements back on the street — ASAP.
Police cars are on fire everywhere. My son and I played basketball earlier than we had planned yesterday evening because of the countywide curfew to take effect at 6 p.m. Today all courthouses in Los Angeles County are closed as the area braces for whatever is coming next.
I keep thinking of the Gospel reading from yesterday. Particularly this part:
On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jewish leaders, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!”
Receive the Holy Spirit. Forgive others their sins as you would have them forgive yours.
Peace be with you.
