GOP Mayor’s Criticism of Anti-Gun Activist David Hogg Could Have Major Consequences

Published

on

Waterville Mayor Nick Isgro could be facing a recall vote after criticizing Parkland shooting survivor and rabid anti-gun activist David Hogg.

Isgro wouldn’t be the first person to experience severe backlash after taking shots at Hogg. Fox News host Laura Ingraham was forced to take a “vacation” from her show and lost a significant amount of advertisers after having a Twitter altercation with the young gun control advocate.

The recall movement in Waterville is being headed up by former Maine Democratic Mayor Karen Heck, with the end goal being to see Isgro removed from office.

In April, Isgro reportedly reveled in Fox News’ president backing Ingraham after the boycott and wrote on Twitter, “Eat it, Hogg.”

A screenshot of the alleged tweet can be seen below, copied and shared by an account that calls itself “Waterville Republicans.”

The group wrote, “We are deeply disappointed in @nickisgro1’s recent tweet about @davidhogg111. As #2a supporters, we don’t agree with David’s policy ideas, but he should be treated with respect and decency, especially given the terrible tragedy he endured. Mr. Mayor, apologize.”

Isgro himself responded to the movement to have him ousted from office on Facebook:

“My team will be closely examining the petitions for accuracy since over 14% of the petition signatures were disqualified or rejected so far,” he added, noting that the movement was nothing more than an an “effort organized by dark money funded outsiders,” and said that the attack is not just on him, but on “all of us.”

“They do not like the way we run Our City, they do not like that we speak up at meetings, and they do not like how you have worked with me in an effort to put you first before politics and political agendas,” Isgro continued. “They want to silence us. They do not like that Democrats, Republicans, Independents and those not enrolled in political parties have come together as a unified people to achieve great things — as friends and neighbors should.”

Here’s the full post:

While his comment might have lacked professionalism to a certain degree, he’s certainly entitled to his own opinion, and to be fair, David Hogg — who is now legally an adult — chose to get involved in the public arena.

He knew full well what the political climate is like in America in the 21st century, yet he chose to not only wade into the water, but dove in on one of the most divisive issues in our country: guns.

This is aside from the fact that Hogg himself has repeatedly insulted his elders for not implementing gun control, an act for which he was given a complete pass by the media.

This comment in no way justifies a recall vote, which in turn translates into a full nullification of the voters’ voice in Waterville.

The First Amendment no longer seems to matter in America anymore.

DC Mayor Now Bribing Children to Get Vaccine with Gift Cards, AirPods

Unbelievable.

Published

on

The Biden Administration is coming to a startling realization in recent weeks, as the number of folks who aren’t vaccinated approaches the number of folks who won’t be vaccinated. As it stands today, about half to the nation is inoculated, with the other half largely unwilling to go down that road.  In order to reach herd immunity, experts suggest that as many as 70% of us will need to have COVID antibodies – a fact that has prompted a number of municipalities to work up programs to entice Americans to get the jab. In DC, they are now targeting children with these incentives. Washington, DC, Mayor Muriel Bowser announced Thursday the city will offer cash and goodies to children from August 7 as gifts for those who receive their first shot of the coronavirus vaccine. Bowser previewed the August reward program saying, “All DC youth can claim their free COVID-19 [Chinese coronavirus] vaccine” at three locations in D.C., adding the “youth can receive a $51 VISA gift card.” Additional prizes will see, “The first 400 youth to get vaccinated at each site will have the option to forgo their gift card and instead receive a pair of AirPods.” And the parents are being targeted as well. She revealed other enticements, saying “parents/guardians will also get one $51 VISA gift card,” adding the gift cards are “per child vaccinated,” which could be lucrative for families with multiple children. The announcement comes on the heels of a similar bribe by NYC officials who offered $100 to anyone willing to get the jab.

Delta Info Leaked: CDC Says It’s More Transmissible Than Smallpox

That can’t be good.

Published

on

We are now in month 17 of our “2-week lockdown”.  You remember?  The one that was meant to “flatten the curve” two St. Patrick’s Days ago. So, nearly a year-and-a-half later, we are now dealing with something called the “delta” variant, and a return to the masks and restrictions that marred society during the early days of the pandemic. The CDC’s guidance on the matter changed abruptly this week, drawing a great deal of criticism from Americans the nation over.  Now, a leaked document appears to show why the organization changed their tune. The Delta variant is much more contagious, more likely to break through protections afforded by the vaccines and may cause more severe disease than all other known versions of the virus, according to an internal presentation circulated within the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Dr. Rochelle P. Walensky, the director of the agency, acknowledged on Tuesday that vaccinated people with so-called breakthrough infections of the Delta variant carry just as much virus in the nose and throat as unvaccinated people, and may spread it just as readily, if less often. And, when compared to other infamous outbreaks, “delta” holds its own. The Delta variant is moretransmissible than the viruses that cause MERS, SARS, Ebola, the common cold, the seasonal flu and smallpox, and it is as contagious as chickenpox, according to the document, a copy of which was obtained by The New York Times. The immediate next step for the agency is to “acknowledge the war has changed,” the document said. Its contents were first reported by The Washington Post on Thursday evening. The news comes just a children the nation over are preparing to head back to the classroom, and with cooler, drier weather just around the corner to drive some of us back indoors.
