Campaign headquarters across the nation have been reporting a run on Trump signs. People are getting signs left and right. While most people simply visit a local headquarters, make a small donation, and obtain a sign, others are so desperate that they are stealing them from yards.
To those stealing Trump signs, we want to reach out to you. You do not have to get down to the low level of a thief. If you require Trump signs, we will help you obtain them. There's no need to steal them. While we need donations to keep headquarters moving and to pay for signs, we will gladly work with anyone unable to donate and wanting a sign. Please just drop by your local Republican headquarters - we are everywhere - and explain your situation to the people working there. I assure you, they will understand your need and work with you so that you, too, can have a Trump sign in your yard.
As for those of us having signs walk away with desperate, fellow supporters, take heart. There are answers for us as well. You do have options. Now, keeping in mind this is NOT legal advice, but simply a guide as to what I would do. If it was me, I would take the following actions:
1. Do not under any circumstance set up a trap for your sign. This could hurt someone, cause you potential legal trouble, and it's simply wrong. I know it's funny when the guy on Facebook grabs the Trump sign that has been electrified, shakes, and falls out in the yard, but that was, in my opinion, a homeowner asking for legal troubles. Just put your sign out with no traps.
2. Consider a camera. You can get a wildlife camera or some other camera and catch these fellow Trump supporters in the act of "getting your sign for themselves." If a fellow Trump supporter sees a camera watching, he or she will not try to take the sign. A camera can provide video proof as well as serve as a reminder.
3. You can report the theft to the police. In some cases, when the police find the Trump signs, you can then pick them up and place them back in your yard. A police call naturally causes a police report, etc., so that is a choice you'll have to make regarding a sign.
4. Finally, you can make sure that the area where your sign is placed is in the light. Put it under a motion detector light or closer to the house where a porch light will shine on it.
Yes, Trump signs are in high demand. We need to do all we can to help these folks seeking a sign to obtain them. A few weeks ago, I even saw an additional sign on a yard. It read, "Trump Supporters, Please Do Not Steal My Sign - Knock on the Door, and I will get you one!"
So, to all the Trump supporters out there - those with signs and those seeking signs - have a fantastic day!

This morning I read a post on a friend's Facebook page that said that "ANTIFA.com" typed into the web browser takes you to "JoeBiden.com," a fundraiser page for the Democrat candidate for president. Now, knowing that sometimes stuff can come up on Facebook that is not always true (shocking!), I tested the little theory. At roughly 6:30 a.m. CST, I used "ANTIFA.com" on my web browser, and I was taken directly to "JoeBiden.com," where an opportunity for me to donate to the campaign immediately popped up on the screen - don't worry, I did not donate.
Several other people also commented, and I noticed that one person even said it checks out as true on Snopes. Well, to be fair, Snopes called it "Mostly True," which to me is like saying, "I'm mostly fat,"...in the end, I'm still "fat" and the redirect for ANTIFA.com is still "True." (https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/antifa-redirect-joe-biden-website/)
According to several sources, this is not the first time that ANTIFA.com has pointed to Biden's page. At some point, maybe a month ago or so, it did and was stopped when questioned. As of 7:45 a.m., it was still pointing just fine to Joe's picture and a chance to donate.
Now, we need to be fair - anyone can change a nameserver at any point and have it point to another domain name. It's easy to do if you know what you're doing or if your hosting company has good tech support. So, whoever owns ANTIFA.com could simply be having the domain point to Biden's site without the campaign's knowledge. However, doesn't it seem like the campaign would take some sort of action?
If Biden's campaign is really concerned about a domestic terrorist organization having its domain point to his website, a public statement, a press release, or speech at the least should be made to state that Biden does not support or endorse ANTIFA should be made. To date, there does not seem to be one.
Further, if Biden's campaign was concerned, shouldn't in addition to a public statement, it consider some sort of legal action? It would be easy to file as a lawsuit against the hosting company to get the name of the ANTIFA owner and claim defamation of character. There is clearly defamation going on as the American voters come to believe Biden supports ANTIFA...naturally, it's only defamation if it's not true, right? So, where is the lawsuit?
The simple fact is, Biden is accepting visits to his website from anywhere. He needs visitors, he needs to reach out, and he doesn't care where a redirect comes from as long as the person reaches his site. At a time that Biden should be condemning the domestic terrorist actions of ANTIFA, he seems content to use them as a vehicle to get what he wants...The Presidency of the United States and that willingness to allow ANTIFA to play a role in the election should concern all Americans regardless of party.

A short time ago today, President Trump signed Executive Orders to give a tax holiday on payroll taxes starting in August through the end of the year for people making less than $100,000 a year - perhaps that part upset the Democrats in Congress since they continue to make $150,000+ a year in salaries as the rest of the nation suffers. President Trump also issued unemployment benefits to extend through the end of the year. Those benefits will be $400 instead of the previous $600, but when it comes to a "Do-Nothing" Congress giving $0, $400 beats $0 all day!
While the President is rushing toward the fight and rushing to help Americans, Democrats have already said they will file a lawsuit. Yes, you read that right - the Democrats are going to file a lawsuit to stop the President's Executive Order. This means they want those people making less than $100,000 a year to continue to pay payroll taxes. They want people unemployed to get $0 from the Federal Government.
Make no mistake here - The Democrats in Congress want you, making less than $100,000 a year, and you the unemployed to continue to suffer during this pandemic. Understand this, while Republicans have tried in Congress, Democrats have blocked them. Now the President is taking actions, and Democrats are going to file a lawsuit....they are actually going to file a lawsuit that says you can not have a tax break in the middle of a National Crisis and that the unemployed and hurting Americans can not have additional unemployment befits. Are you getting this? Do you understand that the Democrat party is placing politics over your family and your well-being? If you can not see it, then you need to WAKE UP and pay attention.
As Democrats prepare to file lawsuits to stop your tax relief and stop your unemployment, President Trump standing up for you said this in response to the threats, "You always get sued."
In November, remember that when the chips were down and times were tough, President Trump had your back. While Congress rakes in $150,000+ salaries a year, the President taking a salary of $0 stepped up for you in what has been the darkest hour for some Americans.

It's known fact in the world of journalism that readers often only glance at headlines. The headlines catch attention and often the story is not even read. This well know fact continues to be a weapon of the media at large. It's hard to control large corporations that own various media outlets, but when it comes to the NPR (National Public Radio) they are supposed to be a non-biased based media outlet...well, they are tax-funded and should be anyway.
So, if they are tax-funded and non-bias, then why do they outright lie or place deceptive headlines in their news outlets? After all, I'm sure they know that many readers only read the headlines, right? So if you saw this NPR headline on the right and only read the headline, what would you think?
Wow - doesn't it appear that the Census Bureau is having problems because of "White House interference?" I mean it clearly says the "White House," the place where President Trump resides, is guilty of "interference" in the counting efforts. Poor Census Bureau...they cannot do their Constitutionally appointed job because the President is interfering.
But wait! It gets better! Especially if you actually read the article they published. Not only is the wild headline of the "Interference" dropped once you click the link, it changes completely to "Census Cuts All Counting Efforts Short By A Month" But, I thought the "White House" was the problem?
A full read of the article does show that the White House did interfere. However, it was not in the negative way the article originally leads the reader to believe. The White House actually extended the deadline for the counting to September 30, 2020, to allow the Census Bureau to collect all data in the middle of a National Emergency and the COVID-19 Pandemic. That's right...The White House and specifically President Trump tried to help the Bureau meet their Constitutionally demanded jobs by giving them more time. The article clearly states this fact!
It is bad enough that the jerks and morons typing the news and putting it out have forgotten that they should be reporting the news and not using it as a political weapon, but for the NPR to be doing it with taxpayers money - that is simply a violation of the conditions of their federal funding. This should be looked into, investigated, and perhaps it's high time that NPR has to go out and get advertising support like other traditional news outlets. I personally do not want my tax dollars going to fund any news outlet that allows their "Opinion" articles to become journalism or the headlines for what was otherwise a neutral article. Shame on you NPR.
Oh, and if you think it's insignificant, NPR has a $166 Million Budget as of 2015. 25% comes from the federal government - uh, yeah...your money. Another 40% comes from public funding - cities, donations, etc. I'm not sure how Americans should feel about $41,500,000 in tax funds on average going to support the political agenda of NPR.
