  1. Don't really need to say anything, seems to me if Trump had done anything wrong/illegal/improper the federal government via the IRS would be freezing the president's bank accounts, seizing his assess and we all know such news would make 'Breaking News' media headlines along with articles about Trump's court dates and-or pending criminals charges... That we haven't, so far, tends to speak for itself ~
  2. I've also noticed several articles posted various places trying to trash president Trump's Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett, for her faith, this Democrat politicians politicians speaking out against her for being Catholic~ US News and World Report: Judged for Being Catholic Umm, I guess some don't have a clue (or a care) that the Democrat nominee Joe Biden, is also a Catholic. One of the religious tenants of the Catholic faith is that "life begins at conception" and they are, according to their faith opposed to abortions in almost every form and for any reason... So Joe Biden has for decades voted in support of spending bills that include the Hyde Amendment which bars the use of federal funds to pay for abortion except to save the life of the woman, or if the pregnancy arises from incest or rape. But since he's decided to run for president, all of a sudden has stated he's 'pro-choice': "If I believe health care is a right, as I do, I can no longer support an amendment that makes that right dependent on someone's ZIP code," So does that make him a bad Catholic - or just a typical politician?
  3. I just read an article on CNN where one of their talking heads predicted "street violence", civil unrest and destruction if president Trump isn't reelected... My question is with the exception of the alleged participants, how is this any different than what we have now?
  4. I love it... When you post about "lies" from the Republican candidate, you expect to be taken seriously... But when someone points out false statements by your preferred Democrat candidate you accuse people of "nit-picking' and then just roll into your usual TDS, "Trump and Republicans are terrorists" nonsense. Perhaps you missed the statement from your buddy Biden that 200 million, not 200 thousand people have died because of Covid. Here, let me help you out...
  5. If you want to start a post to talk about something completely unrelated to the original topic, feel free... Yeah, there was no denial despite you're saying so... I just flat out ignored another of your race-bating rants and posting something completely unrelated to the topic of discussion. If I were to try to play your game, I'd mention I notice you didn't post anything about the cops shot in cops shot Louisville, Kentucky (one happens to be black, btw) during the Breonna Taylor protest... But that's kind of a cheap shot. If I thought it deserving of posting I would have posted about it. I just find it incongruent that you would claim to be upset when no one posts about a black person having been shot by the police, but when the topic is about a black police officer being shot by a protester you have nothing to say. You also have nothing to say about the thousands of black men, women and children being shot and killed because of violence in places like NY, Chicago and Orlando within the past 30 days. You're just as guilty of talking point tunnel vision as you attempt to accuse others of being the only difference is people usually don't try to give you crap for your blinders - unless you attempt to sling some crap at them for doing the same thing you're doing.
  6. That Biden had a stutter and overcame it is pretty much common knowledge, but stuttering is a completely different topic than the frequent gaffs Biden tends to display when not reading from a prepared message (and sometimes even then too)... I mean confusing 'two hundred thousand' with "two hundred million"? That ranks right up there with former president Barack Obama claiming to have visited: "57 U.S. states with one left to go". I think your friend is trying to use a common tool when trying to cover the faux-pax by Biden or Democrats by trying to explain for some reason or another 'it wasn't their fault', there's something (or someone) else to blame...
  7. For more than a decade some in the media have been quick to point out "lies" from Republicans, while at the same time attempting to allow Democrats an out by allowing them to excuse their false statements by claiming they "misspoke", or some such... CNN: "Clinton says she 'misspoke' about sniper fire" Currently the 2019 estimate of the United States of America population is 328.2 million. During a campaign speech in Philadelphia Democrat presidential hopeful Joe Biden stated "200 million people" will die of the coronavirus by the time he finishes his talk. That's nearly two-thirds of the entire U.S. population! And for some reason this failed to make many major network news headlines. This was the Democrat's 'best of the best' when they chose their 2020 presidential candidate?
  8. In keeping with the topic of Biden flip-flopping on his previously stated public positions... (*when in reality this deserves it's own thread) Biden Flip-flops on his flip-flop regarding presidential appointment of Supreme Court Justice close to presidential election In 1992, with Republican President George H.W. Bush in the White House, then-Senator Biden, the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, took to the Senate floor to issue a grave warning to the White House and Senate Republicans. If a vacancy occurred in the Supreme Court that year, President Bush should “not name a nominee until after the November election is completed.” Were the president to take this step, Biden stated “the Senate Judiciary Committee should seriously consider not scheduling confirmation hearings on the nomination until after the political campaign season is over.” In fact, Biden reportedly said that if President Bush put forward a nominee, the Judiciary Committee - his committee - should "seriously consider not scheduling confirmation hearings on the nomination until after the political campaign season is over." https://www.cbsnews.com/news/joe-biden-once-took-the-gops-position-on-supreme-court-vacancy/ In a jaw-dropping display of revisionism, in 2016 Biden noted, about the decision to leave the Scalia vacancy open irrespective of who President Obama chose, Biden publicly stated: “Deciding in advance simply to turn your back before the president even names a nominee is not an option the Constitution leaves open. It’s a plain abdication from the Senate’s duty.” https://www.newsweek.com/biden-2016-president-has-constitutional-duty-nominate-supreme-court-justice-even-months-1533106 Even president Obama suggested it was a president's Constitutional "responsibility" to submit the name to replace a Supreme Court vacancy to replace Justice Scalia, who died Feb. 13, 2016. https://www.nytimes.com/live/supreme-court-justice-antonin-scalia-dies-at-79/obama-i-plan-to-fulfill-my-constitutional-responsibility-to-nominate-a-successor/ As a matter of fact RBG had this to say about president Obama submitting his nomination for Scalia's replacement in 2016 when asked if the president had an obligation to nominate and the Senate had an obligation to assess Judge Merrick B. Garland’s qualifications, her answer was immediate. “That’s their job,” she said. “There’s nothing in the Constitution that says the president stops being president in his last year.” https://www.nytimes.com/2016/07/11/us/politics/ruth-bader-ginsburg-no-fan-of-donald-trump-critiques-latest-term.html Now with the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Biden seems to have flip-flopped on his 2016 flip-flop from his original position in 1992, as well as the advice and opinion offered by his former boss, the President of the United States and at the time, a sitting Supreme Court Justice. Reuters: Biden blasts Trump's plan to push Supreme Court nominee ahead of election “To jam this nomination through the Senate is just an exercise of raw political power.” https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-court-ginsburg/biden-blasts-trumps-plan-to-push-supreme-court-nominee-ahead-of-election Biden has abandoned it 2016 opinion and once again taken up his 1992 opinion saying it would be 'improper' for the president (this time Trump - another Republican), to pick and the Senate to consider a Supreme Court nominee so close to an impending presidential election. The only thing that appears to have changed during all of Biden's flipping and flopping around is the political affiliation of the presidents. Biden opposed the nomination of a Supreme Court justice close to a presidential election when there is a sitting Republican president, but supported it when there is a sitting Democrat president prior to an impending presidential election and now says he opposes it again with another Republican president in the White House... Am I wrong? Did I miss something?
  9. NPR: September 18, 2020 Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Champion Of Gender Equality, Dies At 87 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. "Our nation has lost a justice of historic stature," Chief Justice John Roberts said. "We at the Supreme Court have lost a cherished colleague. Today we mourn but with confidence that future generations will remember Ruth Bader Ginsburg as we knew her, a tired and resolute champion of justice." https://www.npr.org/2020/09/18/100306972/justice-ruth-bader-ginsburg-champion-of-gender-equality-dies-at-87 RIP and thank you for your service to our nation.
  10. Biden flip-flops on his his flip-flop - New Town Hall - New Democrat Candidate opinion on his power to impose a national mask mandate... Biden: "I cannot mandate people wearing masks..."
  11. Most of don't need a heads up when it comes to recognizing there tends to be a bit of political bias in the news media when it comes to Democrats -vs- Republicans, conservatives -vs- liberals and the Trumps -vs- anyone else... For those who are still disbelievers I'll offer this as exhibit 2020 - 1.
  12. Damage and looting amid "mostly peaceful protest" cost $1-2 billion in claims, according to the Insurance Information Institute which eclipses the previous high which was during the 1992 Rodney King, verdict riots.” How can something be "mostly peaceful" while at the same time accumulating nearly $2 billion damage estimate, which will be the largest in insurance claim payout in history? What lengths won't the mainstream media go to in order to try to flim-flam the American public and blur the lines between "peaceful protest" and "riot"?

"Our legal team thinks I can do that based upon the degree to which there's a crisis in those states, and how bad things are for the country, and if we don't do it, what happens," Biden said of his ability to act federally if states decline to take action. https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/biden-believes-president-legal-authority-implement-mask-mandate/story?id=73060035
  14. Two months ago the Minneapolis City Council members submitted a proposal to dismantle the city's police department... "We committed to dismantling policing as we know it in the city of Minneapolis and to rebuild with our community a new model of public safety that actually keeps our community safe," Council President Lisa Bender told CNN at the time. But with violent crime on the rise in the streets of Minneapolis, City Council members are having to answer to citizens when they ask: Where are the police? MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The number of people killed in Minneapolis is up 95% from this time last summer. 39 victims have lost their lives since the beginning of the year. It’s becoming more common than not to hear about a shooting in Minneapolis. More people have been shot this year compared to the past five. “Crime is out of control,” said Rich Walker Sr., director of the Police Officers Federation of Minneapolis. “Criminals feel like they can do whatever they want to do. They know the police department is at a vulnerable state right now with staffing levels and with morale,” Walker Sr. said. The city council addressed what’s happening with gun violence during their Friday meeting. “A total of 32 victims of gunshot wounds in last two weeks through Monday, July 27,” Mayor Jacob Frey said. The chief said one way the department is addressing it, is to shift some resources. That’s to answer 911 calls and to cover the 33 officers who have left since the death of George Floyd and more going on medical leave. Walker Sr. said that shuffling of personnel resulted in the elimination of the violent criminal apprehension team. “They’re going after the worst of the worst. When you have to deplete that unit to put them back on the street to cover the holes left by cops who have been traumatically affected by the events {riot} of Memorial Day, it has an adverse reaction,” Walker Sr. said. https://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2020/07/31/crime-is-out-of-control-minneapolis-officials-address-uptick-in-violence/
  15. Speaking of typical... Just days after condemning the shooting of two deputies in Los Angeles county as “absolutely unconscionable” Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden took to Twitter to restate his call for banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines... I think everyone knows by now the LA county deputies were shot with a handgun and not an "assault weapon" and there is no indication the shooter used a "high capacity magazine", none. So where's this coming from? IMO, 'typical' for anti-gun crowd - like Joe Biden... Take heed America. We have been warned.
