20200918: MAGA Peaceful Protest, Bemidji, Minnesota

http://media2.trover.com/T/55c1a8898e7cb26d8d0003e3/fixedw_large_4x.jpg

First question…how does one pronounce “Bemidji”?

Wiki says: Bemidji (/bəˈmɪdʒiː/ bə-MIJ-ee)

Works for me.

Okay, here we go:

As a central city for three Indian reservations, Bemidji is the site of many Native American services, including the Indian Health Service. Near Bemidji are the Red Lake Indian ReservationWhite Earth Indian Reservation, and the Leech Lake Indian Reservation. Bemidji lies on the southwest shore of Lake Bemidji, the northernmost lake feeding the Mississippi River; it is nicknamed “The First City on the Mississippi”. Bemidji is also the self-proclaimed “curling capital” of the U.S. and the alleged birthplace of legendary Paul Bunyan….

Its name derives from the OjibweBuh-mid-ji-ga-maug (Double-Vowel orthographybemijigamaag),[6] meaning “a lake with crossing waters”. On occasion, in Ojibwe, Bemidji is called Wabigamaang (“at the lake channel/narrows”), because part of the city is situated on the Lakes Bemidji/Irving narrows, on the south end of Lake Bemidji, and extends to the eastern shore of Lake Irving. Some sources say that Chief Bemidji, an Ojibwe leader, is the namesake.[7]

Bemidji Township was surveyed by European Americans in 1874. It was organized in 1896, 24 days after the village of Bemidji was chartered, and is the oldest township in the county. In 1897, the county attorney declared the original Bemidji township organization illegal (no reason given) and the township reorganized on June 26, 1897.[8]

About 50 Leech Lake Indians lived along the south shore of the lake prior to the 1880s. They called the lake Bemidjigumaug, meaning “river or route flowing crosswise”. Freeman and Besty Doud claimed 160 acres west of and including present-day Diamond Point; they were Bemidji’s first homesteaders. 

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/7/71/Paul_Bunyan_and_Babe_statues_Bemidji_Minnesota_crop.JPG

Art Lee created the story that the folkloric figure Paul Bunyan came from the Northwoods. Tales about Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox led to public sculptures of them in the 1930s.[citation needed] According to Discover America, the Paul and Babe statues are “the second most photographed statues in America,” surpassed only by Mount Rushmore.[9] The Rotarians of Bemidji commissioned the statue of Paul Bunyan during the Great Depression as a tourist attraction. It was unveiled on January 15, 1937, to kick off a Winter Carnival that drew more than 10,000 visitors.

Hey, every place has to have a claim to fame, right?

Today Bemidji is an important educational, governmental, trade and medical center for north central Minnesota. The wood industry is still a significant part of the local economy, with Georgia-Pacific, Potlatch, and Northwood Panelboard all having waferboard plants in the local area. They use wood species that were once classified as waste trees.[10]

I’ll add live links to this post during the late afternoon as they become available.

Concerned Virginian

8,000 to 10,000 MORE people were turned away from POTUS’ peaceful protest at Bemidji!

Nor'easter

AAAAND…
After making that breaking news split screen with the rally… OANN went right back to the rally !
KEK !!!

Sylvia Avery

God bless OAN!

ICYMI

OMG
CONFIRMED BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS.
She died at her home today.

POTUS doesn’t know. If he did, he probably would have said something by now. I hope he doesn’t make any SC jokes.

Antifa are anarchists and are being funded by somebody.
FIND OUT WHO THE SOMEBODY IS!!

Concerned Virginian

POTUS just called out Biden as UNFIT to be President!
Now calling out “:OMAR” ELMI! “How did she get away with that?”
Going after AOC. “All of the sudden she had $2 Million dollars and spent it with her boyfriend. How did she do that? She spent it on dresses, rent, other things.”
POTUS is racing from one topic to another — got to run the brain to keep up with him!
“YOU DON’T HAVE TO GO TO WAR.”
“FIND OUT WHO THE ‘SOMEBODY’ IS WHO’S FUNDING ANTIFA.”

ladypenquin

CV, POTUS doesn’t bring up anything without purpose. If he hasn’t forgotten about Omar, that means he’s making sure someone else hasn’t forgotten.
BTW, did you see where POTUS tweeted that he is going to hold a “big rally” in Virginia soon?

duchess01

Mr. Congressman – you don’t buy dresses – if you did – that would be the end of your career!!!

trumpismine
Sylvia Avery

OMG………HIllary……….emails………..yoga lessons “she’s not big into yoga; if she is she’s not getting her money’s worth…………”
SPEW!!!!!

kalbokalbs

The yoga comments are absolutely priceless!

duchess01

33k emails – about Yoga – she is not into Yoga – is she is – she is wasting her money – her daughter’s wedding
What about all of those possible classified emails – we will give her about 200 on Yoga and the Wedding –
Hammer – Acid Wash – I never do that – and I am President – she gets a subpoena – she deletes – washes – and everything is busted up – think about how angry it makes me when I say it.
They allowed her to get away with that – they are available – and they are in the State Department

Riffing on Crooked. She’s not that big into Yoga, if she is, she’s not getting her money’s worth,
33,000 emails, hammer, bleach bit, acid washed
Subpoena, everything’s gone….You don’t know how angry I am
I messed up, I’m a loyal person, I went to Mobile, was endorsed early (by Sessions), he asked over & over for job, I’m a loyal person & gave him job…He should’ve never let her get away with that!
I guarantee you emails are in State Dept, and they better damn well find them

duchess01

Story Time – He is on a roll – how do you let people know about the machinations of Congress?

duchess01

Roll Call – Beto – he is in charge of taking your guns – NOOOOOOO – says the crowd!!!

Concerned Virginian

Justice Ginsburg just died.
I hope her ending was peaceful.
Can you IMAGINE how many Depends are being used in Washington, DC right now?

kalbokalbs

Laughing. No, not Laughing at RBG. Laughing at the D-Rats and deep state that are sh!tting their pants.
Turtle has his work cut out for him and Ms Lindsey. CAN leave this vacancy open!!!

kalbokalbs

CAN’T leave an open vacancy behind.
(Damn sure NOT a SC vacancy) 🙂

Sylvia Avery

Oh yeah, you’ll get to pick more SC Justices PDJT!! Ha!

kalbokalbs

Three SC in first term.
Second term surely another two to four. 🙂

kalbokalbs

Yes, not before 3 November. But Rs must get it done.
Cry’n Chuckie and all the D-Rats are going to pitch massive fits.
We heard something about this and next week chock full of booms!!!

duchess01

Isn’t it odd that President Trump issued his list of judges he recommends for the Supreme Court!!!
I bet he knew!!!

She definitely lasted longer than she was predicted to. Pancreatic cancer that had spread to her liver and lungs,…bad stuff.

duchess01

It was just announced – I bet she has been gone for some time. Timing???

I posted the SC letter, it says this evening.

duchess01

She died this evening? Where did you post it?

Sorry, Main thread

duchess01

Oh, ok – Thanks, Butterfly!

ladypenquin

Was just telling hubby that, Duchess. Three weeks ago, out of the blue, (I thought it strange at the time as he had a previous list…) so they likely had to tell him that she was near death.
She has gone to her reward – having adamantly supported the killing of millions of babies by abortion/infanticide. And she was Jewish, one would have thought she’d have understood what she was doing.

duchess01

There was something very wrong with her thinking – about gender – equality – life – her whole agenda was evil to the core.
Agree – he was told – but, it may be this is something he is required to do – and Biden is, too – but, no list from him.

ladypenquin

She apparently dictated some final thoughts to her granddaughter shortly before her death. Included was the comment that she didn’t want her replacement in there until a new president was sworn in.
What hubris. Ginsberg could have left with grace and dignity months ago – instead her own selfishness will add to the chaos of the election.
It’s unfortunate when judges, politicians, anyone thinks they’re more than the country. It’s clear that set herself quite high.
POTUS has a duty to nominate, and senate confirm. BTW, someone just made a good point to Schweikart – we need the Justice replaced – considering that election issues could end up in the high court.
McConnell has already said a nominee will be put forth on the Senate floor and there will be a vote.
Let them all posture as they will.

duchess01

Not her place to dictate what should be done – typical Ginsberg right to the end. SMH, lady – evil woman.

duchess01

I think the List of Judges is protocol – but, the timing always gets me.

kalbokalbs

Can’t recall any President publshing a list of potential SC nominees. Me thinks it is a President Trump original.

duchess01

Did he do it in 2016, Kal?

kalbokalbs

Yes.
Me thinks, President Trump published the list to help validate his conservative perspective…follow The Constitution.

Sylvia Avery

Yes, he did. To reassure the conservatives who were afraid he’d nominate more Sandra Day O’Conners and the like.

duchess01

Falls in line with Constitution Day, too – did not think of that, Kal – Good Point!!!

Yep, he is the most transparent Prez, EVER!!
I don’t think he knew anything about RBG. He just updated his original list…..before the election. He also demanded Sleepy put one out so the public would know before they vote.

kalbokalbs

Would be very telling IF Pedo Joe published a list of his potential SC nominees.
^^^ Will never happen.

Agreed.

Sylvia Avery

Yes I remember the talk in 2016. No one had ever done it before. It was just Trump Awesomeness.

duchess01

Compares Low Energy Jeb with Biden – two of a a kind – but, he thinks Biden is even worse!

Weissman should be in jail.
CONcast
They’re a bad group of people. They’re evil people, they should all be in jail.
Do you have to tell the truth over the free airwaves? Nobody will answer.
We’re trying to beat a terrible group of Deep State people.

duchess01

He said it – DEEP STATE!!! Don’t you think that is odd, Butterfly – but, most people know now.

Nor'easter

(OANN cut in… did another RBG report… Now back to the rally !)

Sylvia Avery

Is she still dead????

Nor'easter

(let’s just say… There’s been no improvement on her condition!)
😉

Sylvia Avery

*Relieved*
Just checking……..was afraid it was all a dream. 😘😘😘😘😘

Nor'easter

(it kinda is… A dream come true!)
😉

Sylvia Avery

Yes it is. Our country will be better for this.
😘😘😘

There went the pedo support! Thank God!

Nor'easter

😉

😵😱😳😁

duchess01

The entire next week will be devoted to the funeral – about what they will be talking – Supreme Court Justice – BIG DEAL – entire last week of the month – the Budget – the negotiations – end of the government year!

duchess01

Really? Sunday? True – not on Sabbath!

duchess01

https://cremationinstitute.com/jewish-funeral-traditions/
Time Between Death and Burial
As soon as possible after death, the Rabbi or funeral home should be contacted, so that the arrangements can begin. A speedy burial is extremely important.
It’s believed that this is one of the most important ways to honor the deceased.
Within 24-hours is preferred, if it’s possible.

duchess01

That is quick – does not even give family that live far away time to get there to pay their respects – had no idea, DP – Thanks!

duchess01

Quite different.

Sylvia Avery

Did she practice her faith? I always assumed she was completely secular…..

duchess01

Who knows, Syl? From what I understand – you must pay your dues (money) – no way we would know – if so – they will take care of her – too secular – but, there are so many different kinds – hard to tell what is acceptable – if you know what I mean.

Sylvia Avery

We’ll probably all learn a lot about Jewish funeral rites in the coming days!

duchess01

Maybe, maybe not – but, you know – if they want something done – they will find a way to do it – no matter what her religious views are.

Cuppa Covfefe

Yep. Were it pickled-losi, they could just throw a match on it and have a barbeque…
[sorry… that mafiosi Piglosi is fit for the flames unless she repents]…

duchess01

Wow!!! For someone of that stature – that is unusual – but, maybe not, considering what you said about the type of funeral.

duchess01

You called it, DP – exactly as you said – quickly – not drawn out.

duchess01

Funerals are like that – if a close family member lives far away – they would wait. I meant – your experience with Jewish funerals – must be done quickly and quietly.

duchess01

I guess not – it is their tradition – not ours.

duchess01

Georgia: Rally Schedule – What does PT have planned for next week?

duchess01

All Next Week?

duchess01

Wondering if they would conflict with the funeral – logistically I mean

duchess01

True – then it will probably be Sunday!!!

duchess01

Wondered about that – did Scalia lie in state?

duchess01

Interesting – why would the casket be heavy if he was cremated – they did that to hide the cause of death – no autopsy – very convenient.

duchess01

Did not like that whole situation – very nefarious – family had no say – I think.

Sylvia Avery

The Wall will soon be built. Slowing drugs and human trafficking………to me the traffickers are the worst scum in the world.

Sylvia Avery

Teasing Mike Lindell now……He buys commercial time at bargain rates. PDJT
wants him to buy commercial time for him.

notasmidgeon

President Trump is still in the middle of his Peaceful Protest……he can’t know about Ruth dying, can he? OAN came on early in his talk to announce her death.

Sylvia Avery

I bet he was notified before the news was released to the public.

duchess01

He knows – he always knows – his Press Secretary would know – so he knows

Sylvia Avery

He’s bragging on the AF1 pilots now………..”look at that, he’s waving from the window!”

https://www.npr.org/2020/09/18/100306972/justice-ruth-bader-ginsburg-champion-of-gender-equality-dies-at-87
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the demure firebrand who in her 80s became a legal, cultural and feminist icon, died Friday. The Supreme Court announced her death, saying the cause was complications from metastatic cancer of the pancreas.
The court, in a statement, said Ginsburg died at her home in Washington surrounded by family. She was 87.

Sorry y’all, I’m sore, tired from working out(4th time this week😲). I’m watching but gonna lay down.

LOL! REASON OVER RHYME!!!

How about Low Joe?
Then again, sleepy evokes creepy, leading to sleepy, creepy Joe…
Or slow Joe and HUH-HOe…

duchess01

PT is not giving a speech – he is speaking to the people like they are all friends – beautiful!!!

wolfmoon1776

“….this politics is a very phony business.”
TRUTH!!!

duchess01

He is STILL not a POLITICIAN!!!

wolfmoon1776

Amen!

Sylvia Avery

Joe Biden can’t carry Pence’s jock strap!

duchess01

LOL

kea

So is this the boom Q was talking about?

Sylvia Avery

Introducing the congress critters………..

Sadie Slays

I’m coming into this rally late. Did POTUS mention RBG at all?

duchess01

NO

Sadie Slays

Thanks!

Sadie Slays

Thanks!

Sylvia Avery

No, he did not. He mentioned he’d picked two SC justices and 300 federal judges and he’d pick more…..

Sadie Slays

Thanks!

duchess01

I don’t think it would be proper, Sadie – this is a campaign rally – it is not his place to announce – imho

kalbokalbs

Thinking RBG checking out announcement was after the rally started.
After the rally, there will be a WH announcement…

duchess01

He has been talking a long time – anybody know how long?

Sylvia Avery

I think he said an hour and twenty minutes……..
winding up now, back on prompter

Sylvia Avery

👍👍👍

duchess01

I think it has been longer than that, Syl!

wolfmoon1776

He’s on SCOTUS without knowing and he’s PITCH PERFECT!!!

wolfmoon1776

He said 1 to 4, so he may know, but not revealing it.

Sylvia Avery

Oh Wolfie, I’m sure he was notified before it was announced publicly, don’t you think?

Nor'easter

(Oh… he knows !)
😉

wolfmoon1776

IN GOD WE TRUST

Sylvia Avery

Spoke of the importance of the next SC justice in terms of impact on life and 2nd Amendment…I’m sure it was in the prompter but oh boy……SPOT ON!

notasmidgeon

He’s so awesome!

Sylvia Avery

Yes, and that man wears an overcoat like no one else ever! He just ROCKS it!

notasmidgeon

OMGosh….I was thinking that same thought today!!!

Sylvia Avery

😍😍😍👍

wheatietoo

Yes! Love seeing him in a topcoat.
He wears it so well!

Sylvia Avery

Best. Ever.
And it is not an easy look to achieve. Doesn’t look that good on a lot of guys for some reason.

wheatietoo

I think he’s worn out the crowd.
😄🤣

Sylvia Avery

Hi Wheatie! He’s worn me out, LOL! I try to keep up with him and write his comments but when he is freestyling I cannot keep up. No way. There’s too many great little asides…….

kalbokalbs

So glad we are back on regular rallies!
Slow Joe being further left in the dust 🙂
D-Rats, deep state and YSM have nothing to counter President Trump with.

Sylvia Avery

Oh………..he’s doing the “and then Jason came to me and said Mr President we just have to stop winning we can’t take any more, and I tell him No I’m sorry Jason the people of Minnesota want to win!”

duchess01

Jason was laughing!!!

ladypenquin

Think about this Sylvia – with the SC nomination situation, they’re going to have to have Biden come out and campaign, and Biden can’t! He’s really done for. Harris isn’t good the campaign trail either.

Sylvia Avery

No, Harris just cackles and it is NOT appealing. I bet they bleed points in the polls every time she does that.

GA/FL

“We will make America wealthy again,
We will make America strong again
We will make America proud again
We will make America safe again
And we will make America great again!
Thank you, Minnesota!

kalbokalbs

Maybe future rallies President Trump will invite Rs to speak during the rally.

Sylvia Avery

Whew! I feel like jumping up on my couch a la Tom Cruise and dancing to YMCA after that (AND the news about RBG…..)

kalbokalbs

RBG news gotta be just killing the D-Rats and YSM. Will be fun to watch the SC nomination and confirmation roll out.
YSM will hemorrhage during pressers. 🙂
