Supporters of President Trump packed the Bridgewater Channel Saturday morning for a rally which not only celebrated the 45th president of the United States, but also the men and women of our military who’ve made the ultimate sacrifice.

Boats adorned with both American flags and Trump flags sailed through the channel and down to Thompson Bay as patriotic music blared from their speakers.

Both sides of the channel were filled to the brim with patriotic supporters who were decked out in red, white and blue. Hats, visors, t-shirts, tank tops and trunks bearing Trump’s name were all worn Saturday. One man wore a t-shirt which was covered front to back with nothing but Trump’s many facial expressions.

“The whole thing is just awesome,” said Judy Barnette, who was on hand with Mike Altman. Both are Lake Havasu residents and found out about the event from a Facebook post.

The number of visitors to Lake Havasu usually swells this time of year. But combined with those in town for the rally as well, that figure skyrocketed. Parking lots surrounding the channel were filled and entrances were backed up.

“The turnout is impressive,” said Ryan Hunt of Palm Springs, California, who took in the festivities with his friends. “We had a group of 10 on a boat and we were just enjoying and having fun.”

The patriotic support will continue through Memorial Day Weekend and the channel is likely to see a similar amount of traffic.

Man, I didn't think there were that many Trump loving fools in town. I'd write what I really thought about Trump and his stupid Trump lovers but I don't think they would post it. Now go ahead Trump lovers. Scream and holler about this. It only proves how incompetent you are.

SECOND WEDNESDAY NEWS UPDATE

Twitter added information to refute the LIES in the impeached fools tweets for the first time on Tuesday, after years of pressure over its inaction on his false and threatening posts. The social media company added links late Tuesday to two of Dopey’s tweets in which he had posted about mail-in ballots and falsely claimed that they would cause the November presidential election to be “rigged.” The links — which were in blue lettering at the bottom of the posts and punctuated by an exclamation mark — urged people to “get the facts” about voting by mail. Clicking on the links led to a CNN story that said the impeached moron’s claims were unsubstantiated and to a list of bullet points that Twitter had compiled rebutting the inaccuracies.

Cwilk1187

He is your president, like it or not. When you use such disrespect it only makes you look un-American. A reasonably intelligent person should be able to make a rational point without all the childish name calling.

BobMoore

Look at that another troll who jumped on the thread for free. Tell you impeached messiah to stop name-calling an so will I.

Guest

Who’s the troll!!

Guest

By that logic, wouldn’t your support of trump’s constant lying, bullying, childish name calling, and disrespectful behavior make you also appear “un-American”? In fact, one of the most American values and pillars of our Constitution is our right and ability to be critical and openly air grievances. In your own words, “A reasonably intelligent person should be able to make a rational point without all the childish name calling”. Let that sink in for a moment.

deaton

“In fact, one of the most American values and pillars of our Constitution is our right and ability to be critical and openly air grievances“ So by that logic, childish name call and disrespectful behavior is allowed, as it IS “critical and openly air grievances, right? Or is it your opinion that only your “point of view” is acceptable “critical and openly aired grievances”? “Let that sink in for a moment”. Seems rovR** has another disciple? [thumbdown][huh] Deaton

Responding to Deaton

Nobody claimed that childish name calling wasn’t protected speech. Anyone can feel free to use that form of communication, but the whole of intelligent, civilized society recognizes it as childish, and not reasonably intelligent. It was all spelled out, so why does it need to be explained again? For the leader of the free world to consistently use such infantile words and behaviors is beyond understanding. Feel free to support that, it is after all your right, but it is also our right to view it as childish and uneducated.

deaton

Responding to “Guest”,“but the whole of intelligent, civilized society recognizes it as childish, and not reasonably intelligent.” I completely understand that in your “cloistered convent” of liberal dogma, exposure to different ideas is frightening. “Just consider this...when you think the President is a jerk; he is! He’s a New Yorker. He’s crude and can be rude. He gets his feelings hurt and he’s a hot head. He hits back; hard! I think he should Tweet less. Let me tell you what else he is. He is a guy that demands performance. He is a guy that asks lots of questions. The questions he asks aren’t cloaked in fancy “political” phrases; they are “why the hell...” questions. “He’s the guy that gets hospital ships readied in one week when it would have taken a bureaucrat weeks or months to get it done. He’s the guy that gets temporary hospitals built in three days. He’s the guy that gets auto industries to restructure to build ventilators in a business that’s highly regulated by agencies that move like sloths. He’s the guy that asks “why aren’t we using drugs that might work on people that are dying; what the hell do we have to lose?” He’s the guy that restricted travel from China when the Democrats and liberal media were screaming “xenophobia” and “racist.” Now they’re wanting to know why didn't he react sooner? He’s the guy that campaigned on securing the border - protecting America - in the face of screaming Democrats and the liberal media. When he shut down the borders in the midst of the coronavirus virus, they screamed louder. Then the rest of the world followed suit, including the European Union with travel between their member countries saving untold numbers of lives. Has he made mistakes? Yes. Everyone I know has and does. He was also lawfully elected President of the United States! I sincerely hope he will be re-elected to a second term!

FIRST WEDNESDAY NEWS UPDATE

On Memorial Day, U.S. President Donald Trump attacked Democrat Congressman Conor Lamb, a Marine Corps veteran, as an “American fraud” and “puppet for Crazy Nancy Pelosi” in a Twitter endorsed for the lawmaker's Republican rival on Monday.

Trump misspelled the Congressman’s name as “Connor Lamm” while boasting “Sean Parnell is an American Hero.” Lamb, who represents Pennsylvania's 17th congressional district, won a special election in 2019 by less than 1 percentage point.

Lamb responded, “These people have been lying about my record since the day I became a candidate. It hasn't stopped, and it won't stop, until we beat them at the ballot box in November.”

HavasuGuy

Think about it. Twitter had to develop a "fact check" system due to the tweets that tRUMP sends out. They actually used it on some of his tweets today because he was spewing falsehoods about mail in voting. tRUMP's tweets were tagged with a link that says, "get the facts about mail in voting". When you click on it you're directed to fact check sites and news stories to see the truth about mail in voting. Surprise! he was not telling the truth and Twitter helped show it.

We've had mail in voting in Arizona for years, 80% of Arizona voters use it. I use it and, be honest here, I bet most of you on here use it too. Arizona also allows walk in voting for 27 days before election day, we are far ahead of a lot of other states when it comes to having the freedom to participate in our constitutional rights.

Trump 2020 because the Dems can't even manage to come up with a candidate that doesn't spew racism and has dementia. Move to Cali if you hate Trump, because all of the conservatives are already living in or moving to Lake Havasu and the rest of AZ.

Show me where I have put false information and I'll gladly point you to where I get my information. Are you saying that Twitter didn't put fact checking links on tRUMP's tweets? You sound annoyed?

As I tell the other idiots on here, prove the information is incorrect, be it mine or HG's. All you fools do is whine about us, but you NEVER can prove our comments are in error. And I only wish "all of the conservatives" are living in Havasu. It would save the rest of the country from having to put up with conservative/fascists. However, I do agree with your "trump 2020" nonsense - 20 years in federal prison and 20 years in state prison.

Justpassingthrough

Just passing through (maybe that makes me a troll LOL )

I can’t believe I read the whole thread..what was I thinking?

Lessee…I’m one of those Calif. guys (but my boat is only 80G). You bet, I’ve worked my behind off to get where I’m at. One of the supposed great things about this country is that hard work---producing something of value is rewarded. I’m proud of what I’ve achieved. And I respect all the working folks here in Havasu who bust THEIR behinds that make this place a great place to play in. I don’t come here to flaunt or demean the locals. I just come here to play. It’s sad that some people here (as noted in this post), don’t like us. Havasu’s population is what? Approx. 52,000? (2010 census). If it weren’t for the snowbirds in the fall and winter and us boaters in the spring and summer, there would be no economy here. And no Havasu. For all intents and purposes, EVERYBODY who lives here permanently, CAME from someplace else. I just don’t get why there would be so much dislike of the people who come from out of town, spend their money and keep the local hard working electricians, plumbers and etc. employed.

I’m also a home owner here. And someday, (sorry you’ll just have to deal) I intend to retire here. Being Conservative (i.e. believing that everyone should work for a living, being allowed to keep what we earn, (lower taxes) keeping the government small and OUT of our personal business) does NOT mean we are Fascists, or Trump supporters or even Republicans. But we absolutely are scared to death of Socialism and/or Communism. The idea that government is there to ‘Take Care of US’. Because when we let the government ‘Take Care of US’ we ultimately let the Government tell us what to do, where and how to live, what we can do and when we can do it. We give up our freedom and liberty for a false sense of security. And for those who are going to say derogatory things about me (because it is clearly in your nature to do so. Keyboard warriors are SO predictable) at least we can be clear. I didn’t vote for Trump. Nor did I vote for Clinton. Trump was the lessor of two evils and he continues to be, but I won’t vote for him. Conservative values have none in The Peoples Socialist Republic of Kalifornia….we need a Red Star next to the Bear on the Flag. California, though I do love living here, is deep blue. So, for many of us conservative Californian’s coming here to express our values where they are appreciated by at least some of the people is a nice thing.

What else? Oh…yeah…100,000 dead. That’s a fake number. It’s nicely crafted, and it’s a fake number. Because it includes PROBABLE/POSSIBLE deaths. But just because something is “Probable” doesn’t make it TRUE. Grandma has the sniffles when she dies at home..WHOOP WHOOP..another Covid death. C’mon Willard, lets go find another, facts be DAMNED!!

They’ve done this to inflate the numbers. Whatever number they claim isn’t a real number. Not until they separate the CONFIRMED from the PROBABLE. So we can all make whatever claims we like about the number of dead. It’s a meaningless number. Say it’s too low or too high. Either claim is defensible.

The population of the United States is 330.8 million. ( https://www.worldometers.info/world-population/us-population/) As of this afternoon, the total number of confirmed Covid cases is 1.725 Million)….Well, another way to say that is: 99.48% of the population of this country DOESN”T have Covid. Barely ½ of 1% is infected. Confirmed. We have allowed our government to shut down our freedoms and destroy our economy for less than ½ of 1%. Really? And the hard question is: Did it really make a difference? My opinion is no.

Covid is here to stay. Just like heart disease (1772 deaths per day https://www.cdc.gov/heartdisease/facts.htm) and Cancer (https://www.cancer.org/research/cancer-facts-statistics/all-cancer-facts-figures/cancer-facts-figures-2019.html about 1662 deaths per day. Note the 103,250 2019 deaths amongst the Oldest of the Old). Where is the media hype and daily death tolls/numbers for those two killers?

It’s a virus. There currently is no cure or vaccine. There may NEVER be a vaccine.

We can’t stop LIVING. Hunkering down, cowering in our homes for fear of SOMETHING killing us if we venture forth is NOT living. And the discussion about ‘essential’ and ‘non-essential’ is a whole other post.

And make no mistake. If us Californian’s hunker down and do what our Fuhrer Newsome demands, and stay away from Havasu, the economy here will be devastated more than it has been already.

Ok tirade over. Back to your regularly scheduled programming.

Oh, yeah PS..for the grammar and spelling police…I’m a product of the Communist/Socialist Kalifornia non-education system…I failed those subjects, so insulting me on those counts won’t phase me a bit.

Justpassin through: Thank you for your post! Most of the people who say derogatory things about CA tourists coming here are former Californians. They want to bring their way of life to Havasu and God help us if they succeed. I too came from there, born and raised until 22 years ago when we came here. The dimwits who post on every single site and insult everybody who doesn't think like they do (liberal big mouths) are to be ignored. If they have no audience, they dry up and blow away. Their ego needs this power...to anger you, rile you up, get you to post back so they can keep on posting right back. What a sad, sad life they must have. So pity them, feel sorry for them, even pray for them but above all else ignore them. They are nothing but an ant in your life whose words mean nothing in reality. So come visit us, be safe and enjoy what Havasu has to offer for everybody. It's a wonderful place and as long as the liberals and mean, insulting people are ignored, the good guys will shine and welcome you and everybody else who wants to come here.

Sueddy77

Thank you Mr Trump for all you do

BobMoore

Really? You give thanks for this –

1) Biggest stock market drop;

2) Highest national debt;

3) Most convicted team members;

4) Most pandemic infections in world history.

ALL in his first term.

And while we’re about it, tell us how you feel about this - Just a few of the lying, impeached, low-life scum’s broken promises;-

1. He told you he’d cut your taxes, and that the super-rich like him would pay more. You bought it. But his 2017 tax law has done the opposite. By 2027, according to the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center, the richest 1 percent will have received 83 percent of the tax cut and the richest 0.1 percent, 60 percent of it. But more than half of all Americans – 53 percent – will pay more in taxes.

2. He promised the average family would see a $4,000 pay raise because of the tax law. You bought it. But real wages for most Americans are lower today than they were before the tax law went into effect.

3. He promised to close special interest loopholes that have been so good for Wall Street investors but unfair to American workers, especially the notorious “carried interest” loophole for private-equity, hedge fund, and real estate partners. You bought it. But the new tax law kept the “carried interest” loophole.

4. He promised to bring an end to Kim Jong-Un’s nuclear program. You bought it. Kim Jong-Un hasn’t denuclearized.

5. He told you he’d repeal Obamacare and replace it with something “beautiful,” including “insurance for everybody.” You bought it. But he didn’t repeal and he didn’t replace. (Just as well: His plan would have knocked at least 24 million Americans off health insurance, including many of you.) Instead, he’s doing what he can to cut it back and replace it with nothing. According to the Commonwealth Fund, about 5 million Americans have lost health insurance in the last three years.

6. He told you he wouldn’t “cut Social Security like every other Republican and I’m not going to cut Medicare or Medicaid.” You bought it. But now he’s planning such cuts in order to deal with the ballooning deficit created, in part, by the new tax law for corporations and the rich.

7. He promised to protect anyone with pre-existing conditions. You bought it. But in June, his Justice Department told a federal court it would no longer defend provisions of Obamacare that protect patients with pre-existing conditions.

8. He said he’d build a “wall” across the southern border.You believed him. But there’s no wall.

9. He told you he’d invest $1 trillion in our nation’s crumbling infrastructure. You bought it. But after his giant tax cut for corporations and millionaires, there’s no money left for infrastructure.

10. He said he’d drain the Washington swamp. You bought it. But he’s brought into his administration more billionaires, CEOs, and Wall Street moguls than in any administration in history, to make laws that will enrich their businesses, and he’s filled departments and agencies with former lobbyists, lawyers and consultants who are crafting new policies for the same industries they recently worked for.

11. He promised to re-institute a five-year ban on all executive branch officials lobbying the government for five years after they leave government.” You bought it. But the five-year ban he signed applies only to lobbying one’s former agency, not the government as a whole, and it doesn’t stop former officials from becoming lobbyists.

12. He said he’d use his business experience to whip the White House into shape. You bought it. But he has created the most dysfunctional, back-stabbing White House in modern history, and has already fired and replaced so many assistants that people there barely know who’s in charge of what.

13. He told you he’d “bring down drug prices” by negotiating “like crazy” with drug companies. You bought it. But he hasn’t.

14. He told you he’d “stop foreign lobbyists from raising money for American elections.” You bought it. But foreign lobbyists are still raising money for American elections.

15. He promised “six weeks of paid maternity leave to any mother with a newborn child whose employer does not provide the benefit.” You bought it. But the giant tax cut for corporations and the rich doesn’t leave any money for this.

16. He said he’d create tax-free dependent care savings accounts for younger and elderly dependents, and have the government match contributions low-income families put into their savings accounts. You bought it. He’s done neither.

17. He said that on Day One he’d label China a “currency manipulator.” You bought it. But then he declared China is not a currency manipulator.

18. He said he “won’t bomb Syria.” You bought it. Then he bombed Syria.

19. After pulling out of the Paris accord, he said he’d negotiate a better deal on the environment. You bought it. There have been no negotiations.

20. He promised that the many women who accused him of sexual misconduct “will be sued after the election is over.” You bought it. He hasn’t sued them, presumably because he doesn’t want the truth to come out.

21. He said he would not be a president who took vacations, and criticized Barack Obama for taking too many vacations. You bought it. But since becoming President, he has spent a quarter of his days at one of his golf properties.

22. He vowed to “push colleges to cut the skyrocketing cost of tuition.” You believed him. But he hasn’t. Instead, he’s made it easier for for-profit college to defraud students.

23. He said he’d force companies to keep jobs in America, and that there would be consequences for companies that shipped jobs abroad, especially government contractors. You believed him. Never before in U.S. history have federal contractors sent so many jobs overseas. There have been no consequences.

24. He promised to end DACA. Then in January 2018 promised that “DACA recipients should not to be concerned… We’re going to solve the problem,” then he reversed himself again and vowed to end the program by March, 2018.

25. He promised to revive the struggling coal industry and bring back lost coal mining jobs. You bought it. But coal is still losing customers as utilities turn to natural gas and renewable power.

26. He promised to protect American steel jobs. You bought it. His tariffs on steel have protected some steel jobs. But industries that use steel – like automakers and construction – now have to pay more for the steel they use, with the result that their jobs are threatened. The Trade Partnership projects that 400,000 jobs will be lost among steel and aluminum users.

27. He said he’d make America safer. You believed him. But mass shootings keep rising, and Trump has failed to pass effective gun control legislation. After 17 died in Parkland, Florida, Trump promised “immediate action” on gun safety in schools, but has done nothing.

28. He promised to make two- and four-year colleges more affordable. You bought it. But Trump’s most recent budget contains deep cuts in aid for low-income and first-generation college students, reduces Federal Work Study, and eliminates the 50-year-old Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant program, which goes to more than a million poor college kids each year.

29. He promised to eliminate the federal deficit and bring down the debt. You bought it. Yet due to his massive tax cut mostly for corporations and the rich, and his military spending, the deficit is set to rise to $1 trillion, and the debt has ballooned to more than $21 trillion.

30. He said he’d release his taxes. “I’m under a routine audit and it’ll be released, and as soon as the audit is finished it will be released,” he promised during the campaign. You bought it. He still hasn’t released his taxes.

TUESDAY UPDATE #2

Oh my god, this is funny. No one does the self-own better than our impeached leader. No one.

Dopey’s Monday nonsense by tweetantrum he threatened the entire state of North Carolina. The impeached moron is hell-bent on getting his cursed GOP convention. It is an event in which millions are spent to make it a spectacle and few Americans watch. He is going to get that convention if it kills him, or others. Dopey needed a commitment from North Carolina’s Demoratic governor that he would get his full arena convention.

Of course, after the impeached fool threatened to move the convention unless Charlotte commits right now to giving him the full arena, the “feedback” came fast and furious. First, GOP chairwoman Ronna McDaniel all but admitted she had no idea what Dopey was talking about, and said that they were going forward with plans in North Carolina, while also acknowledging that the situation might change. Second, rumors began to circle that the low-life wanted to move the convention to Doral in Miami. The crook seems desperate to have millions spent in renovating that place but he wants those millions to come from someone else’s funds.

Appearing on the Fox Propaganda Network Monday morning, Vice President Mike Pence listed several states the convention could be moved to, including Texas, Georgia and Florida, te tax-haven for the impeached fool. Those three states all have Republican governors. “What you’re hearing the president say today is just a very reasonable request of the governor of North Carolina,” Pence said.

The impeached “leader” suggested holding a scaled-down convention “…in a hotel ballroom in Florida, given all of the health concerns and the fact that Florida is further along in reopening portions of the state,” referring to his own scummy property at Doral hat is badly in need of repair.

And then, in typical fashion, the liar-in-chief later tweeted he had “zero interest“ in moving the convention to Trump National Doral Miami in Florida.

I'm curious to see the true boat launch/crowd numbers when figured. It's true there was a huge number of boats and people on the lake, but to say thousands were here for the parade is incorrect. The majority were here from out of town to enjoy the lake. Now our local divers go to work removing all the trash they threw overboard. :-(

HavasuGuy

You are correct Ninetoes, it was about 100 boats with tRUMP flags camping on the 1000's of boats out celebrating the real reason for the weekend, Memorial Day Weekend for the Veterans. Even Arizona news stations panned the phony patriot parade because of the lack of turnout of tRUMP supporters...

TUESDAY NEWS 1

America is staring down a widespread COVID-19 testing shortage with no vaccine in sight. So what happens when coronavirus makes its unceremonious return? Robert Redfield, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, told the Financial Times that he “can’t guarantee” more stay-at-home requirements in the winter or the fall. “We are committed to using the time that we have now to get this nation as over-prepared as possible. We’ve seen evidence that the concerns it would go south in the southern hemisphere like flu [are coming true], and you’re seeing what’s happening in Brazil nowand then when the southern hemisphere is over I suspect it will re-ground itself in the north.”

“This simple respiratory viral pathogen has really brought my nation to its knees, and the reality is, it’s no one particular person’s fault,” he added. (A Columbia University study released this week said up to 36,000 lives could have been saved had U.S. economy shut down even one week earlier.)

Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases for more than three decades, previously declared, “We will have coronavirus in the fall. I am convinced of that.” He previously said the “ultimate game changer” will be a vaccine, but that could take 12 to 18 months.

“If we’re not expecting a second wave or a mutation of this virus, then we have learned nothing,” New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, added, calling it a “new normal” for public health in the U.S. “That is why it is such an important period for government.”

First, the bad news: “The four seasonal coronaviruses do not seem to induce long-term immunity,” said Gregory Poland, who studies the immunogenetics of vaccine response in adults and children at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., and expert with the Infectious Diseases Society of America. “We will not have a vaccine by next winter,” Poland added. “The Southern Hemisphere is just starting their fall and winter. They will have a severe course of this disease due to less preparedness, less medical infrastructure and less public infrastructure.”

“There’s a possibility that the assault of the virus on our nation next winter will actually be even more difficult than the one we just went through,” Redfield, the CDC director, previously told The Washington Post.

And of course opening the nation will only exacerbate the problem. Stupid actions such as that demonstrated by Republican/fascist supporters of the impeached president in Lake Havasu City will lead to a major uptick in the virus in coming weeks.

And nothing says "I spent my summer sick as a dog with COVID-19!" like sharing some good times crammed into the open water with thousands of people not wearing masks. Is anyone taking wagers on where the next new outbreak hotspot will erupt after all the idiots on parade this weekend across the country? I want in on that action.

Over 1,100 dead US American Veterans because of tRUMP and covid-19 and they're proud of his accomplishments? He ignored and downplayed this pandemic, now 1,700,000 are infected and 100,000 are dead and they threw him a parade? Do these people even think about what they represent? Putting any person before our country is un-American.

Oh, Havasu...you make me so proud. Proud that I left. It makes me sad to see thousands of people getting together to celebrate a draft dodger during Memorial Day weekend. Nevermind the insults he lobbed at John McCain, a true hero, who did more for America and Arizona than Trump can ever hope to achieve.

100k deaths from Covid-19 and you all get together to celebrate a chauvinist who doesn't care about you. He only cares about himself and his celebrity. During a time when we are supposed to honor true sacrifice, these people opted to party in honor of a man who has sacrificed nothing.

Someone called Havasu out for being uneducated. I honestly don't know the numbers (although, the vast majority of people I grew up with who left to obtain a college degree didn't come back). But, every time I see someone post about FAKE NEWS in CAPITAL LETTERS, it reminds me about how many keyboard warriors there are out there.

RESIST

Sadly, ignorance has shamed Lake Havasu City in the eyes of the World! Celebrating a draft dodging coward on the same day as we honor those who gave their lives defending the United States dishonors our heroes! What would those heroes think about being aligned with a draft dodger? Shameful!

It was truly a disrespectful act towards our Veterans and an embarrassment for Lake Havasu City. We visited a local cemetery yesterday for a private memorial, on the way I was saddened to see so many flags in residential yards that were not at half mast. Our flag has been at half mast since Friday and I just raised it this morning. Their is a responsibility to displaying the American flag that I would expect everyone would respect, especially in a town that claims to be a America's patriotic city. A large number of the offenders also had tRUMP flags displayed, I would have thought that they would have followed their president's decree to lower them to half mast as he requested. Sad and disrespectful...

I seem to be getting a lot of replies that prove my point that Democrats/Liberals made and make Trump. Let me tell ya, I'm voting for our current POTUS . Not because I believe he's so wonderful but it's the fact that the democratic party doesn't have anyone better. Poor choices are in abundance. Liberals actually need a JFK but their leadership is so consumed by their own failures that it prevents them from making intelligent choices. If you want to sway people to your point-of-view you have to remove the venom, vitriol and outrageous interrelations.

Some of the responses here are being posted by young people, I know because their commentary is similar to what I made during Vietnam. Programed and without mature life experiences.

Fortunately it won't take another war to remove the dictator in the White House, just an election this November should clean up this mess. And I had to laugh at your belief that the republican party isn't going to be pulled down the drain with tRUMP when America flushes that turd on November 3rd.

That's what really gets me, the damage done to the republican party due to failing to be able to contain tRUMP's childishness. It will be a long hard climb recovering from the damage done to a once great party.

1502, where were you in the 1960’s? As I remember, because I was there, everyone was a “draft dodger” especially the “prissy” east coast college types, like Davel2. Some fled to Canada, some had “bone spurs” like our current President. At least W. served in the TX Air N. Guard and flew F 102 fighter jets. Now the “ Big Dog”, he fled to England, Oxford I believe? Dodging the Draft was a National pastime. Being one of the “stupid” without the financial means to evade, I enlisted and served four and a half honorable years. Now considering only 7% of Americans are veterans, President Trump has many, many of his contemporaries who were also “Draft Dodgers”.

Remember when the snowflakes ranted and raved about the 4 US citizens that were killed by terrorists in Bengazi? Put they ignore the 100,000 Americans that have died under tRUMP's watch...

CVA-42

Remember all the SNOWFLAKES that needed crying rooms after the election? As far as the 100,000 that died, that would have happened under any presidents watch. Trump started closing borders long before your hero Biden would have. He closed China and Europe while being called a racist and xenophobic by the Democrats (Biden and Pelosi). In the middle of February Pelosi goes to China Town and tells the people to come out and party. It wasn't until March that Biden admitted Trump was right to close the borders.

Now, with the Democrats criticizing Trump for closing the borders, what would your Democratic hero done and when would it have happened?

As of March 13th, when Trump declared a national emergence and involked the Stafford Act, the total number of corona virus cases in the United States was 1700 with 40 associated deaths. In January and February the Democrats were more concerned with trying to impeach Trump when they should have been concerned with the pandemic and helping to cope with it. They continued knowing that their impeachment efforts were going nowhere in the Senate. All their wanted was to jump up and say they impeached him.

BTW. Trump did not call the virus a hoax. President Donald Trump likened the Democrats' criticism of his administration's response to the new corona virus outbreak to their efforts to impeach him, saying "this is their new hoax."

Despite creating some confusion with his remarks, Trump did not call the corona virus itself a hoax.

A Brief History of 'Lügenpresse,' the Nazi-era Predecessor to Trump's 'Fake News'

BERLIN — When a video of two Donald Trump supporters shouting “Lügenpresse” (lying press) started to circulate Sunday, viewers from Germany soon noted its explosive nature. The defamatory word was most frequently used in Nazi Germany. Today, it is a common slogan among those branded as representing the “ugly Germany”: members of xenophobic, right-wing groups.

Its use across the Atlantic Ocean at a Trump rally has worried Germans who know about its origins all too well. Both the Nazi regime and the East German government made use of it, turning it into an anti-democracy slogan. “Lügenpresse” was branded a taboo word in Germany in 2015 by an academic panel after anti-Islam movements, such as Pegida, started using it more frequently in the presence of journalists. As in the United States, trust in mainstream media is on the decline in Germany. The verbal attacks against journalists soon turned into physical violence in Germany. At times, media members were unable to cover the Pegida-organized protest marches without private security personnel. Some reporters who risked going in without bodyguards were beaten up. It is without doubt that the word “Lügenpresse” has an extremely ugly meaning in modern-day Germany.

Its history is even worse, though. - The term emerged way before the Nazis took over in Germany. For instance, the German Defense Ministry released a book titled “The Lügenpresse of Our Enemies” in 1918 during World War I. According to the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung newspaper, the term was coined by Reinhold Anton in 1914. In books, Anton used the term mainly in a foreign context to refer to “enemy propaganda.” It is unclear whether Anton was a pseudonym. At that time, the word was used more descriptively. A decade later, it had turned into an explosive and stigmatizing propaganda slogan, used to stir hatred against Jews and communists. Critics of Adolf Hitler's regime were frequently referred to as members of the “Lügenpresse apparatus.”

Until today, the word has an anti-Semitic connotation, and it implies hatred not only against journalists but against everyone who opposes the “will of the people.” That abstract concept emerged during World War II when Hitler sought to propagate the idea that Germans were a "master race" superior to all others, especially Jews and Slavic people.

Mr Lemons

Plagiarized verbatim from Haaretz, a left-wing Israeli newspaper. Admired by foreigners (mostly radicals and self-loathing Jews). The overwhelming majority of Israelis are disgusted by it's political views and some even consider the newspaper to be antisemitic. If you're going to steal other people's work without crediting them, then you're no better than a common thief.

I was never a Trump fan, until it is OBVIOUS the he is the only one that has done ANYTHING for this country in the past 4 years. Therefore, my COMMON SENSE tells me if this Country is to survive, there is only 1 vote. If you don't like the RED state, why do you live here? It is so annoying to see the constant stupidity that people say online. Start thinking positive and stop spreading your negative views to everyone. Did your mother ever teach you "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all?" The Trump Parade yesterday was a positive event in such a challenging period of our lives. Spew the negativity somewhere else...Have a great Day!

Specifically, with enactment of House Bill 2757, Arizona’s standard deduction more than doubled to match the new, more generous, federal standard deduction. That legislation also reduced Arizona’s marginal individual income tax rates while consolidating five brackets into four, and it replaced the dependent exemption with a slightly more generous child tax credit" Tax Foundation, Katherine Loughead dtd 4 Feb 2020

The dem's did a major amount of damage to their cause,the past 3= Years and the American People have had it and I promise this Showing Of Support is only going to increase. Hey "rovr" have you EVER witnessed anything like this for one of your candidates? The showing of TRUMP FLAGS,Hats,Shirts and Stickers not only in the Boats,but up and down the Channel, The Bridge and every Spot in between. MAGA 2020 and Beyond.

HavasuGuy

No other president has had the need to have his ego stroked like this guy. But the Chinese companies that make his hats, flags and other merchandise are very happy, I'm sure...

Ninetoes

They call themselves "Americans" They attend an event like this,no masks,no gloves,zero attempt at preventing the spread of a disease that has killed over 100,000 nationwide,with over 60 deaths in Mohave county alone. They return home to spread the sickness to their children,their families and their communities.

They follow a man,if you want to call him that, who has proven time and again that the people of our country mean nothing to him. Those who stand up for their fellow man,stand up against Covid 19,whether it's being on the front-line as a first-responder,a nurse,a doctor or just making face-masks for those who need them,who wear masks and gloves whereever they go to keep others safe..These are the "TRUE AMERICANS!!!"

HavasuGuy

How ironic that these tRUMPers want to wave the American flag for someone that is directly responsible for over 1100 US Veterans who have died in America because of this pandemic and his lust to be reelected. All of this ignorant display on a weekend when we are supposed to be remembering our Veterans for their service and sacrifice for our country. Most of these people wouldn't sacrifice the time to wear a mask, not go to a bar, or give a crap about real Americans. I am disgusted by the lot of them.

If you think 1,100 Veteran covid-19 deaths since March is BS you can go back to whatever communist country you came from.

Trump is no more directly responsible for 1100 veteran deaths than you or I are.

HavasuGuy

tRUMP is directly responsible for the lack of a coordinated and intelligent response to this pandemic and the resulting impact on American lives. Saying he isn't is just repeating what he said, "No, I take no responsibility for this pandemic"

Ninetoes. I am still curious, what happened to the Tenth?

Mr Lemons

Here's a youtube link to drone video footage of the boat parade (caution - the video's music is not family safe): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tpmOh9YyRcc

Thank you Mr. Lemons for the link, its great except the music choice lol.

HavasuGuy

That's funny, your president tRUMP isn't family safe either...

He didn't do the soundtrack, just wow with head shaking at your comment.

For those of you that are so "disgusted" by the patriotic/Conservative parade yesterday, were you there? Need I remind you, Arizona has long been a noted Republican state, most of us moved here with that in mind, and our minds have not been changed. If you moved here as a liberal, you're probably sorely disappointed. Those you see coming here from SoCal are mostly conservatives that have zero voice in CA. I may not understand why you choose the party you do, but I respect it, we just ask that you do the same. If your a Biden person, throw a party, just don't rain on ours. #thisisGoldwatercountry

Arizona Voter Registration Statistics - April 1, 2020

Party Name Registered Voters Percent

Republican 1,370,887 34.89%

Democratic 1,277,242 32.51%

It ain't that red, the state elected Bill Clinton in 1996. Just relax and let everyone be, we don't need a flag in our face every living minute of the day. All these comments about a red state, are you saying those who are not red should leave? All the people with CA boats in the channel were not told to leave California, red folks in a blue state. Our country has lost tolerance and respect, it's obnoxious. BTW, Goldwater was 56 years ago, give it a rest.

Arizona has more registered Independents than republicans because of the republican party bending over for tRUMP. This is a purple state and you're in for a shock come November 3rd when we flush that turd - tRUMP

All I read is blah blah blah. It seems the Dems have definitely been lying for the last 3 years and they continue to this day, that’s how they roll. We don’t need that liberal crap here, it will ruin this town.

shutthefrontdoor

How could anyone attend a rally, not only to celebrate COVID-45, whose hamster on the wheel inside his brain collapsed, but also pay homage to the men and women serving in the military and for those who sacrificed their lives for this nation is beyond comprehension!

HavasuGuy

I agree shutthefrontdoor, I believe it is because they know deep down inside that they backed the wrong horse and they will go to the wire denying their mistake. Of all the weekends they could have had a rally for their candidate, they picked a weekend that is meant to honor our brave US Veterans that gave their life's for our country.

Hey Rovr time to hit the Hwy you live Trump country !

If referring to Woodstock makes you feel young and vital, then by all means go to it. Facts faced, you will see it was nothing like these events

Who is "Rovr?" - And you need to tell your handler you need additional English lessons.

Now there is a C & P we haven't seen in a long time. Maybe you Biden fans should have been there with your Biden 2020 signs counter protesting such a terrible event. ha ha

Well, it looks like the number of COVID-19 cases is going to skyrocket in Mohave county 🤦‍♀️ I am so embarrassed by my fellow Arizonans. Please show some respect for the nearly 100,000 people who have died in only a few months.

RESIST

This is a stunning embarrassment or Lake Havasu City! People honoring a draft dodger on the Day of Remembrance of those who died serving the United States of America!

shutthefrontdoor

And it is not over, as this draft dodger visits his favorite "disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess” city of Baltimore, where he will participate in a ceremony to honor the American heroes who have sacrificed their lives serving in the US Armed Forces. The irony here is oppressive!

pegymo

Get past it, we've had tons of non-military presidents. Don't hold a grudge, it makes you sad and old. Never be embarrassed for someone else's behavior, life is meant to be lived, and enjoyed.

BobMoore

One can only wonder if the reference to “tons of non-military presidents” is identifying them by weight or what. However, a 31% figure is not indicative of a majority let alone “tons.” The two best are Grover Cleveland who hired someone to serve for him during the Civil War and Woodrow Wilson who volunteered for the Confederacy. And I am never embarrassed by the idiocy of others, just find their ignorance to be fascinating.

RESIST

I am certain the 100,000 dead Americans would have loved to be living and enjoying this weekend. However, there was no protection from the trump administration soon enough to save them! I won't "get past it" for a very long time. They deserved better!

HavasuGuy

They worship at the temple of tRUMP and don't care about our US Veterans just like he doesn't. All they care about, just like tRUMP, is getting him reelected. I have faith in America and he'll be gone November 3rd...

pegymo

LondonBridget, Don't be embarrassed, it was a great patriotic event, that showed that there is still life out there other than the walls of a fearful house. I used to be you, but I've decided, I can take care of myself, and have a good time at the same time. As for respect for the 100,000 people that have died, I do have respect for them and their families, but just like our own families, we move on, just like life does, without any control from us.

Mr Lemons

"I can take care of myself...". So when you get sick you will not be clogging up our medical facilities. Good to know.

HavasuGuy

LondonBridget, Besides the 100,000 US citizens that have died, over 1,100 US Veterans have died in the last 3 months due to covid-19 under tRUMP's watch. And these phony patriots held a rally to pay homage to him, not the Veterans. There is no respect for our Veterans from these people.

Havasu can no longer claim to be the most patriotic city in America. Havasu can claim to be a bastion of tRUMP supporters though, but that will have no value after November 3rd...

You should stay home for stay with your face mask on in fear for a few months or maybe a year! We love our country, our President and our Freedom! I remember a worse pandemic in 1969 and do you know what we did???? WOODSTOCK! Every year with vaccines... 45000 to 65000 die! If you fear it is your freedom... stay safe and God Bkess you! But don’t judge others who disagree with ... its not nice and it is insensitive and divisive!

Guess it would have been different if it had been a Biden rally.
