      Poor General Flynn. The DC Circuit decides to take his case en banc. Trump should just stop this nonsense and pardon him.

      #5, if it’s during a Biden midterm, I could see her taking a stab at it. There should be at least a mini red wave backlash. If Trump wins, she shouldn’t even bother.

    11. Tina says:

      The jebots slurred Flynn

      Travesty it continues

    12. marc says:

      Its becoming increasingly clear that Trump has no interest in winning re-election, his erratic behavior on Twitter is indicative of this, never have I seen a candidate inflect some many self wounds on his own campaign and administration.

    13. Robbie says:

      I know we’re nowhere close to done with 2020, but it’s never too early to think about the Senate map in 2022. If it’s Biden’s first midterm, it should be a good year for Republicans and there should be some nice opportunities to pick up seats, but there will also be several seats that need to be held.

      Tim Scott, Ron Johnson, and Richard Burr have already suggested they won’t run again. Given their age, it’s not a stretch to believe Richard Shelby and Charles Grassley will retire either.

      On the Democrat side, only Patrick Leahy looks like he might be in line to retire. Everyone else looks like they’ll be running again.

      Just for fun, I thought I might throw out some names to run in some of these races that either need to be held or could possibly be winnable.

      AL – Gary Palmer, Martha Roby
      AZ – Doug Ducey (I don’t expect McSally to win)
      IA – Terry Brandsted, Kim Reynolds, Joni Ernst (if she comes up short in 2020)
      NV – Brian Sandoval, Dean Heller, Adam Laxalt
      NH – Kelly Ayotte, Chris Sunnunu
      NC – (Wes, help me out here)
      SC – Mick Mulvaney, Henry McMaster
      VT – Phil Scott (if Leahy retires)
      WI – Mike Gallagher, Scott Walker, Paul Ryan

    14. Robbie says:

      When I looked at the 2022 Senate map, what stuck out to me is there are really just two good pickup chances, NH and NV. I suppose I could come up with a scenario where Phil Scott wins VT if Leahy retires, but it would be a real stretch. Electing a governor is a lot different than electing a Senator.

    15. Robbie says:

      Trump’s tweet that wonders whether the election should be delayed is now his pinned tweet on Twitter. It’s hard to pass it off as a joke as a few Republican Senators suggested.

    16. marc says:

      Robbie depending on how big a hole the GOP digs for themselves 2022 might be about defense, defending big states like Florida, PA, Wisconsin etec..

      Tim Scott will run again in 2022, he’s a Senate lifer.

    17. Todd McCain says:

      13. I agree 100% w this.

      “13. I agree 100% w this.”

      It must really be a scorcher today for so many people to be saying such stupid things.

      You people need to learn how to relax a touch.

      Go take your shoes off and walk in the grass…..just make sure Robbie hasn’t been speaking in the same area.

      and the daca rolls will expand to include basically anyone already here

      that change alone will shut the gop off forever

    20. Gordon Allen says:

      Biden inflicts wounds on himself Everytime he( tries to) open his mouth or walk unaided thru a doorway. The MSM covers for him,and the squishy Republicans here are quiet as a church mouse about them; typical Bush, Romney, McCain approach. Bash the Republican,but NEVER attack the Democrat’s

      Gordon Allen,

      I saw the same in 2016.

      If the fat lady sings and the old Demented Joe is the victor, that is when I will believe that this country’s citizens are as weak as Robbie and his ilk.

      Until then, relax and strive to educate every person you come across to the dangers of being a weak-kneed wuss who would write in a dead person’s name.

    23. dblaikie says:

      Since the trolls are coming out today about Trump’s tweet. I thought I could give them something to remember. Here is the result of a F&M poll on Nov. 1, 2016. Enjoy: With one week to go before the election, Democratic nominee Hilary Clinton’s lead in the presidential race has widened to 11 percentage points in Pennsylvania, according to the latest Franklin & Marshall College Poll.

      “Clinton leads her Republican competitor, Donald Trump, 49 percent to 38 percent, among likely voters. Her support increased 2 percentage points from the last poll, taken the first week of October, while Trump’s remained static.”

      Since the trolls are coming out today about Trump’s tweet.

      – Should Trump postpone the election?

    25. dblaikie says:

      But heck I am sure that Frankland and Marshall have learned their lesson. I am sure they have made adjustments to their poll to lift it out of loony land. Yes, sure they have.

    26. dblaikie says:

      Like many here have posted, and since you are on record that you don’t agree with mail in voting. It should not be allowed to pick the President. And yes if these stupid Gov. continue to say they are going to go with that, yes we should wait until every citizen can safely go into a booth and cast their vote.

    27. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Trump tweet was a notice to the Democrats that no game playing would be allowed this election. Do the Democrats have a problem with Trump wanting to assure that people can “properly, securely and safely vote”? The possible abuses in all mail voting is a real concern. If the election has to be delayed a short time to make sure it is secure, so be it.

    28. lisab says:

      dblaikie,

      if the trolls believed the polls they would be acting differently or not even show up

      go back and read the 2016 threads where you had robbie, md, corey etc. berating others for supporting trump and making declarative statements about how bad trump would lose

      you notice that they are much more careful now to say things like, “if the election was today …” or “if these polls are correct” or “thing could change”

      notice they would not takes jason’s bet too

    29. NYCmike says:

      “– Should Trump postpone the election?”

      -Not the correct question at this juncture.

      Should the rush for all-mail balloting be pushed through without any discussion?

      – So Trump should be allowed to remain as president past the end of his term because you don’t believe mail-in voting should choose a president?

      – Goodness. I’m genuinely shocked Trump supporters are even remotely open to postponing the election. If Obama had suggested the same thing, this forum, FoxNews, Rush, and the rest would be in meltdown.

      The Trump tweet was an admission by him that he’s behind and may well lose and he wants a scapegoat to explain away a potential loss.

    37. NYCmike says:

      From Instapundit.com:

      “UPDATE: A friend on Facebook comments: “The left is going bonkers over this. They’re too dumb to realize this is a play off the left’s ‘we can’t start school until we have a vaccine’ and ‘we can’t go back to work until Covid runs its course’ positions. The left now has to choose one course or the other.””

      -As with most things, I’ll wait 24-72 hours to see how things fall out, as the first take is usually the wrong one.

      – The AFL-CIO Republican speaks. If anyone knows how to look at things from a different angle during the Trump presidency, it’s you. You’ve found away to support every policy Trump supports no matter how much it conflicts with your Tea Party views.

    41. marc says:

      I have to laugh at some of the pretzel shapes y’all have to get into just to justify, Trump tweet. You really have to turn off your brain and lack any moral character to defend his nonsense. When are you gonna embarrassing yourself , Even Rush couldn’t defend the stupid tweet.

      Lets face facts, Trump isn’t acting like someone who wants to be re-elected, in fact he’s acting like the opposite.

    42. NYCmike says:

      “The Trump tweet was an admission by him that he’s behind and may well lose and he wants a scapegoat to explain away a potential loss.”

      -Yeah, roll with that.

      GOP Sen Cornyn tells reporters Trump’s election-delay tweet was a joke “so all you guys in the press, your heads will explode and you’ll write about it”

    44. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      The Democrats appear nostalgic for the good ole days of Mayor Daley running elections; and the Republicans have to do whatever is necessary to stop it. Am sure many remember a California Democratic congressional candidate telling non-US residents: “You don’t need papers to vote.” She subsequently became chair of the San Diego County Democratic Party. The Democratic dream is that anyone over the age of 16 who is present in the U.S. on election day gets to vote.

      The tweet was designed to make the issue be discussed, which as pointed out earlier, that is now happening.

      “– So Trump should be allowed to remain as president past the end of his term because you don’t believe mail-in voting should choose a president?”

      -Nobody wrote that.

      – If dblaikie thinks “we should wait until every citizen can safely go into a booth and cast their vote” as he wrote in 27 and that doesn’t happen until, let’s say, March 2021, then that would require Trump staying on past the end of his term, right?

      37. “– Goodness. I’m genuinely shocked Trump supporters are even remotely open to postponing the election. If Obama had suggested the same thing, this forum, FoxNews, Rush, and the rest would be in meltdown.”

      If we were in the middle of a major epidemic, the Republicans likely would have worked with Obama on the issue, if he was willing to look at it in a bipartisan manner (not as a Chicago pol).

    51. NYCmike says:

      ” and that doesn’t happen until, let’s say, March 2021″

      -Got it.

      You write the date, and accuse someone else of writing it.

      Pathetic.

      Go write in a dead person’s name on your mail-in ballot, oh “stalwart conservative Republican”!

    52. Country Dick Montana says:

      Call me a troll if you want, I think that tweet was ill advised. The people don’t see nuance and the MSM will make sure of it. It’s kind of like his threats to call out the military to quell the rioting.

      I am voting for Trump, not because his is our best option, but because he is the only option to subjugation under the jack boot totalitarianism of the current crop of Democrats and their enablers, including the ones that post here. Don’t believe for one minute that the nicest Dem on HHR wouldn’t hesitate to put us into re-education camps if it was good for the cause.

      Seriously, some people here really need to figure out how to fight an enemy as duplicitous as the Democratic Party.

      – I love that after five years of Trump as a presidential candidate/president, you still actually cling to the view that there’s some sort of strategy behind Trump’s actions and tweets. There’s not and there never has been. He’s just a man with a phone who shoots from the hip.

    54. Tina says:

      Cornyn is right. It made the concern trolls head explode.

      They assumed the worse and look like idiots.

      They are the same idiots that want everything shut down

      – No, they wouldn’t. They, rightly, didn’t work with Obama on much of anything during his eight years and there’s no chance they would have moved the date of the election with him still the president.

      We held the election during the Civil war in 1862 and 1864 and we held an election during Spanish flu in 1918. If we could hold them then, we can hold them now on the day it’s legally required to be held.

    57. Stonewall DW says:

      I wonder when someone will blow into Biden’s nostrils to get him going and wake him up so he can be reminded he needs to pick a veep.

    59. Tina says:

      -Let’s see……one of the people Robbie is speaking about became President……while Robbie himself is an out-of-work pilot posting on HHR.

      Which one is “just a man with a phone who shoots from the hip.”?

    61. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      The Republicans might be willing to go along with an all mail ballot, but they will insist on safeguards and proper monitoring. Trump fired a necessary warning shot; now there needs to be a real discussions on how this will work.

      By the way, the Constitution requires a new President take office on January 20, 2021. Trump’s term ends January 20, 2021, unless re-elected. There is no requirement on what date the election be held.

      – I didn’t accuse dblaikie of writing that date. That’s why I included his comments quotations and not the date. I was pointing that waiting until it’s safe could mean waiting past the end of Trump’s term.

      Regardless the question remains, if the date it’s safe to vote in person is after January 20, 2021 and we should not hold a vote until then because mail-in voting is wrong, then should Trump be allowed to stay past the end of his term?

      Um,SDC, there’s this thing called the Constitution which mandates the timing of federal US elections.

      If Trump wants to delay the election then he needs to back a constitutional amendment allowing for an Election Day.

      What Trump is advocating is dangerously close the self-serving Constitution-as-living-document argument Dems advocated to try to help Gore steal the 2000 election.

      If the Constitution means what it system Trump needs to seek an amendment to change it so we can have a fully fair election in November.

      “progressive activists will respond with violence if Donald J. Trump wins reelection”

      We are in Civil War II. The first shots were when the liberal Dem activist shot up the GOP baseball practice.

      The only solution is to split up the country.

      Splitting up the country has always been an intriguing fantasy. How would it be done? By State? Here in PA we are mostly red outside of Philly, Pittsburgh and Harrisburg. Would the people in the red counties be forced to stay? Same for most parts of upstate NY. What about Austin in Texas? Would they be required to stay in a red State.

      Could all this be accomplished without violence? Would there be some kind of mutual defense pact between the 2, 3 or 4 regions?

      Also, if a group were to split off, would they be considered patriots as the founding fathers were, or traitors to be reviled as those that left the Union in 1861?

    80. Stonewall DW says:

      81 – I proposed a map some weeks back. It is NOT by state, though some states would be entirely within a given portion. PA and its suburbs would go with a new country to the east which includes all of NJ, Wilmington, DE, and NY city, CT, VT, NH, RI, etc.

      In my plan, even central NY state is salvaged.

    81. Hugh says:

      I’m not following some of the arguments. To be clear on my view. I do not want mail ballots. I completely agree with trump that it will be widespread chaos and cast doubt on election results. I also believe the democrats will use it to cheat. I also believe that trump’s tweet did not further his goal of preventing mail in ballots but did the opposite. This is not any kind of waning support for trump. I will do all I can to help him win.

      -One more reason why Trump was correct to bring up the issue.

      Biden’s campaign is a mess, which means the Democratic Party, along with dupes like Robbie, need to figure out ways of manufacturing extra votes AFTER Election Day.

      Main-in voting is just the solution.

      It needs to be fought against with all available weapons.

    84. NYCmike says:

      “Call me a troll if you want, I think that tweet was ill advised. The people don’t see nuance and the MSM will make sure of it. It’s kind of like his threats to call out the military to quell the rioting.”

      -Is the call to the military still a story?

      NO, except on places like HHR, which live-and-die for this cr*p.

      BUT, the people who usually don’t pay attention were given a glimpse into the violence going on round the country, which was the whole point of broaching the issue.

    86. Gordon Allen says:

      I believe Congress sets the date of election pursuant to Article 2 of the Construction. Congress could change the date if it felt COVD required it; the argument advanced by liberals for mail voting in the first place. BTW if Biden opts out of debates because of COVD, wouldn’t that be a reason for delaying the vote? There may be more strategy here than meets the eye. Trump is rightly determined to prevent mail voting fraud; the proper tactics we’ll see about

      Trump tends to “muse” out loud about issues and actions that make sense to him. He doesn’t first reflect, however, whether or not such verbal trial balloons are within his presidential powers. Afterwards, after the Dems have scrambled their hyper partisan objections, he moves on, letting the conversation just become an open topic for discussion.

      Nonetheless, IMO, a service was done in suggestively tweeting about postponing the election, especially in lieu of the new acceptable norms cancelling or postponing almost all major/important events, including schooling, graduations, working, marriage, funerals etc. in the midst of COVID and voting by mail concerns.

    102. dblaikie says:

      This is starting to get humorous with the tweet. Like Rush said Trump blew up the heads of the liberals today and the trolls on this site. Of course he knew that he couldn’t do it on his. Of course he know that there was no chance of Congress changing the date. That makes all Slicks questions to me silly!

      With this little tweet. Now the debate is, is mail in voting credible. Does it tempt corruption. The answer is yes.

      Indeed the answer needs to be that on Nov. 4 th we will go our precinct and vote. Those who are at risk can vote by absentee ballot. At the precinct we can wear masks. Fauci fans can wear goggles. Smart minds can figure a way to social distance. But the bottom line is we need to have safe, fair, and CREDIBLE election.

      May be a time to switch out some loons.

      Pew has an interesting poll out showing that 3/4 of adults have an unfavorable view of China. Trump should consider as part of his campaign that a loss for him is a win for China and the greatest interference short of war in a country’s economy and election cycle.

    126. PresidentPaul! says:

      True?

      Does that mean Puerto Rico is on its way to statehood?
      Not necessarily. It’s certainly a possible step in that direction — but “don’t start trying to fit a 51st star onto the U.S. flag just yet,” says Abby Ohlehieser at Slate. Both the Senate and the House of Representatives would need to approve Puerto Rico’s statehood by a two-thirds majority, and though President Obama has said he would be open to the possibility of Puerto Rico joining the union, it’s not clear if Tuesday’s vote is enough to convince the White House to forcefully take up the issue.

      One of the crazy things about China is that we easily could have put our factories in India to help them become a rising power since they are a more friendly government.

    128. Country Dick Montana says:

      “There are more, but that’s a decent start.”

      As far as my feelings about Trump, you can probably lump me in with Jason, Bitter and Wes. Wish we could do better and I will do anything that I can to drag him over the finish line ahead of Biden. Ugly as he is, he is still our dance partner.

      To wish for something different or that we had a better choice right now is like my 3 year old granddaughter asking for a pony every time I see here then pouting when I can’t give one to her.

People have taken to the streets of Khabarovsk near the Chinese border for 18 days in a row, marking an unprecedented show of opposition to the Kremlin in the region.
      Forty-five percent of Russians surveyed by Levada said they view the protests positively, Levada’s poll said.

That actually is much more serious constitutional concern where folks are trying to manipulate the process by putting the power of the entire nation into a select few of the most populated states which would defeat the purpose of a United States if a select few states ruled the land with no representation from most of the other states.

      I like to be able to report on what is going on in my state but I honestly don’t know what they are doing with the Texas death numbers over the last two days. They have managed to throw in 350 deaths that are ‘Unassigned” and not from any specific county. They have never done that before so suddenly we are at over 300 a day dead. We didn’t all of a sudden just double in daily deaths. Past deaths added to daily totals? I don’t know.

      If you go back to 2017 there was a sound bite on the fake news. They kept repeating “global synchronized growth.”

      What was actually happening is the dollar was down -11% on the year meaning all the emerging markets who have debts denominated in US dollars were booming bc things were cheap all of a sudden.

      This year we’re already at at least -11% and still down booming.

      I could see a scenario where if we are able to devalue the dollar significantly say -30% (meaning you lose 30% of your savings also) we could come to a scenario of reemerging global growth.

      China is already back to booming assuming their dam doesn’t blow up as well as most of asia but they all need a cheap dollar.

      Is Tillis still the GOP Senate nominee in our State. His campaign is non-existent in the NC High Country! How about where you are in Mechlenberg County?

    191. PurpleDeac says:

      200- Granted I’m in Wake County, it there is zero Tillis presence here except for this one radio ad about China that runs ad nauseum. NC is a funny state and that seat likes to flip back and forth.

    192. Wes says:

      Well, Sheep, where I am, it’s a constant ad war between Cunningham and Tillis. Cunningham’s running cookie-cutter ads attacking Tillis on healthcare while Tillis has a two-pronged approach casting Cunningham as a lapdog of extremist liberals and a tax raiser on a host of goods and services including healthcare.

      Tillis seems to be adopting the Burr strategy of holding his major fire until September. It worked for Burr in 2004 and 2016 and for Tillis in 2014. I hope it works this time. Cunningham isn’t a very impressive candidate, but Covid-19 may present a problem for the way Republicans have traditionally campaigned successfully for Senate here. Polls notwithstanding, I’m still saying Tillis wins by about 5. Cunningham hasn’t made a case for himself, and so long as Tillis works to undercut Cunningham’s chief argument I expect Tillis to take the W about 9:30-10 on Election Night.

    193. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      Maybe someone here can explain Tillis’ strategy of being an “invisible” candidate.

      The Class 3 seat was the one that kept flipping parties till Richard Burr managed to hold it in two successful reelection bids. It flipped every time from 1980 to 2004.

    201. PurpleDeac says:

      It’s only 10:30 but I’m shocked how bad the market has responded to the tech earnings from yesterday. Big oil had disastrous numbers but tech should have carried the market along with it.

      Consumer sentiment fell a bit. But still, this stat exceeded expectation sharply for July.

      A measure of business conditions in the Chicago region came in at 51.9 in July, after registering 36.6 in June. Economists surveyed by Econoday had expected a reading of 42.8 for the Chicago PMI. Any reading below 50 indicates worsening conditions. The regional manufacturing index comes before the closely watched ISM figures for July that are due to be released next week.

      Fauci basically said Trump did everything right, from what I heard. Blamed the States, which is fine, as the States are sovreign as per the Constitution and can make their own rules.

    204. Phil says:

      Wes, what has Tillis done about making Cunningham have to answer directly as to whether he would vote to end the filibuster, DC statehood, green new deal, etc.? I’d be all over that if I was Tillis.

    205. Robbie says:

      One positive I see right now is the discussion around corona is shifting to the vaccine. It’s no longer if, but when. And now, the discussion is more about what type of protection it can provide and how it will be distributed.

      One thing I think Trump can do that would be a real positive for the effort against corona and for his presidential campaign is begin a PR campaign to encourage everyone to get vaccinated when the time comes. He should enlist celebrities, athletes, and anyone else to cut PSA’s encouraging people to get vaccinated.

      Getting as many people vaccinated as quickly as possible is the fastest route out of this mess. If we find a way to get 200 million vaccinated in two months, the country could quickly return to normal. Trump can play a big role in this just as we saw with masks. Once he encouraged their use, Republican acceptance of mask wearing jumped from the low 60’s to the low 80’s.

      Focusing on light at the end of the tunnel and building support for vaccination will benefit the country and his campaign.

    206. Wes says:

      Tillis hasn’t addressed any of that directly in the ads I’ve seen, Phil. He has touched on it in a roundabout way by linking Cunningham to Schumer, Pelosi, and Sanders using Cunningham’s own words.

      He’s attacked Cunningham primarily on that issue but has also pointed out how Cunningham voted to raise taxes on goods and services. Not coincidentally since Cunningham’s attacking him on healthcare, Tillis is pointing out how Cunningham voted to raise taxes on healthcare services, thus making the services more expensive.

      I hope Tillis ties Cunningham to the other things you mentioned, but right now the Senator seems to be attacking only as I enumerated above.

      Just as an FYI, Tillis has the only positive spot up I’ve seen. Literally all the Cunningham ads I’ve seen have been attack ads. That doesn’t mean Cunningham hasn’t aired any positive spots. It just means I’ve literally seen none.

    207. Robbie says:

      If you look at the graph on Worldometers, Fridays are the day we see the highest number of cases. Last week, the US recorded more than 78,000 new cases. Already though, Florida has checked in with about 9,000 new cases today and that’s 3,000 fewer than last Friday. The seven-day moving averages for CA, TX, and AZ also show noticeable moves downward this week. A positive development.

      In April, the number of new cases plateaued at a high level for quite a while in the US because, as NY and NJ came down, cases began rising elsewhere. We didn’t see the kinds of drops Europeans countries had mostly because of the size of the country. This time, though, case started rising everywhere at about the same time so I have some hope that while we’ll probably plateau nationally at this level for a period of time, we should see more of a downward slope since many states appear to be edging lower at he same time.

That’s the first time they’ve reared their heads during the Trump presidency.

      Second, Ted Cruz has begun endorsing hard right challengers in Senate primaries again. He endorsed the hard right candidate in the TN primary and he apparently talked Trump out of endorsing Marshall in the KS primary. This fits well with the way Cruz behaved during the Obama presidency.

      What kind of Republican would appeal to the government workers and the consultants that derive their salaries from a large government and the spending that goes with it that live in the DC suburbs of Virginia.

      As someone who is very attentive to 2A issues, when nearly every county outside of the DC suburbs and City of Richmond declare themselves to be 2A sanctuary counties, but Dems still control the VA government, that should tell you the outsized influence of the Federal government in that states affairs.

      Wes. a quick search of McDonnell’s election shows that he was elected in 2010. Starting in 2006 and 2008, VA has elected Dem Senators. That era kind of coincides with the growth of the federal Government after 9/11.

      As long as there is a huge Federal presence in VA there will not be a republican in statewide office. Your idea for Columbia (Well, they really can’t call it that now anymore can they) would be ideal.

      – No doubt, but nominating ghouls like Corey Stewart didn’t exactly help.

      As Wes noted, if the Virginia Republican party can nominate more Bob McDonnell’s, it can win again.

      The question is whether the nominating process in Virginia will allow that.

    230. Country Dick Montana says:

      “As Wes noted, if the Virginia Republican party can nominate more Bob McDonnell’s, it can win again.”

      I believe that the electorate has changed significantly in VA since 2010. And remember there have been no GOP senators since 2008.

      So again, what type of Republican would appeal to the huge Federal workforce in the DC suburbs, most of which who have come there to be a part of the Government.

      Pres Trump pursuing “law and order” campaign strategy, often tweeting that phrase, and reaching out to law enforcement with words of support. He has 2 meetings today with police groups. @VP did a “Cops for Trump” event yesterday in PA and phones into another police group today.

      Actually, CDM, I have a slight nitpick:

      McDonnell won in 2009 and had coattails.

      That said, Republicans were competitive in 2013, barely losing the AG race and performing better than expected for Governor. Unfortunately Ken Cuccinelli had an ego as big as VA and split the party to win the nomination, costing himself the chance to win the governorship.

      Even as late as 2014,Republicans nearly won a Senate seat–and probably would have won it had they increased turnout efforts.

      Since then, Dems have fully dominated. That has as much to do with how weak the VAGOP is as with the influx of federal workers into NOVA.

      Fauci’s position is that “crowds” are NOT synonymous with “protests”.

      And he repeatedly relies on an appeal to authority fallacy by saying “as a public health official” rather than providing logic, arguments and evidence for his wildly inconsistent views

      He’s an absolute joke

And people can claim to be undecided about Trump as against THIS!! I don’t/ can’t believe the majority of Americans are that far gone nuts. In a sane world Trump wins in a landslide. As long as federal property isn’t at risk let the city burn to the ground.

      For me the most important event or data this week began with Lanny Davis, “Violent protesters lighting fires and using violence in Portland should wear @realDonaldTrumpbuttons. That is who they are helping.Progressives in Portland need to call them out, including the Mayor.”

      And then lo and behold the left-wing Gov. was willing to talk and cut a deal. Suddenly the loony Mayor was quiet. And last night Portland had its first peaceful night in months. My goodness all sorts of Black Lives Matter types were there talking about needing peace and love.

      For me this is evidence of something no poll will show. These protests and riots are turning against the Dems — big time!

      And then, like clock work, the Rasmussen poll comes out today showing Trump above water. Now please understand me, I do not how accurate this poll is. By Monday he will lower than today most likely. But could this poll represent a trend that one of the most connected guys in democratic circles saw a few days ago?

      And now Trump is meeting with the Police Unions in the Oval Office today? You can think that is a coincidence if you want. But I believe that Trump is reaping a harvest of votes with his stance on law and order.

      Fwiw, I always try to be VERY precise with the words “Nazi” & “communist.”

      A Nazi” means “somebody I hate” to the left. To me it means either a member of the Nazi party, or a self-proclaimed Nazi here.

      “Communist” to me means a member of a communist party, or a self-proclaimed communist here. (Not too many of the self-proclaimed ones around. They embrace the programs, but are careful to avoid the label.)

      I personally prefer not to call people I detest “communists,” just because I hate them. To me, that smacks too much of the left’s constant sloppiness with words– “literally Hitler,” etc.

      I very much doubt it. When they banded indoor dining in California, the restaurants switched to outdoor dining on sidewalks and even parking spaces. Still people are in close proximity.

      The demonstrations throughout June may have been a factor, as people were very close to each other and many without masks. Each demonstration was an equivalent of a packed sports stadium. For several weeks they were almost daily.

      However, the overall going from a total lockdown, which just temporarily bottled up the virus, to being open again was the primary cause. Can anyone name me a location where a lockdown was ended that the virus did not remerge?

      Populist/hard right = thinking the Executive Branch of the federal government has the right to actually enforce immigration law and make anyone coming here be of the legal variety.

      Populist/hard right = streamlining, reducing, and/or abolishing bureaucratic rules and regulations which were NOT VOTED ON by the representatives of the Legislative Branch of the federal government

      Populist/hard right = moving the American embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, fulfilling a promise made by the last 5 or 6 Presidents.

      Populist/hard right = allowing the nations governors, like Noem in So Dakota, more freedom to deal with a virus as they see fit, since the situation in each of the separate states tends to be radically different from some of the others.

      Populist/hard right = speaking out against using tax-payer $$$ for abortions……you would think a “devout Roman Catholic” would support that policy wholeheartedly!!

    344. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      To me the massive protests in California opened up the floodgate to coronavirus to spread in the state; apparently Dr. Fauci does not agree, or is afraid to offend the left. Here is a portion of Fauci’s congressional testimony:

      “Jordan also noted that New Jersey cops arrested gym owners Ian Smith and Frank Trumbetti for violating lockdown by operating their business. “Ian Smith, Frank Trumbetti were arrested for trying to open their gym,” he said. “But my bet is if these two individuals who owned this gym were outside just in front of their gym, and all the people who were working out in their gym had been outside protesting, they would have been just fine. But because they were in the gym working out, actually running their business, they got arrested. You think that’s okay?”
      “I’m not going to opine,” Fauci said.
      “But do you see the inconsistency?” the congressman pressed.
      “There’s no inconsistency, Congressman,” Fauci said.
      “So you’re allowed to protest, millions of people in one day, in crowds, yelling, screaming, but you try to run your business, you get arrested? And if you stood right outside that building and protested, you wouldn’t get arrested? You don’t see any inconsistency there?”
      Fauci again dodged the question. “I don’t understand what you’re asking me,” he said, refusing to opine on “who should get arrested.”
      “You’ve advocated for certain businesses to be shut down. I’m just asking your position on the protest,” Jordan insisted. “We’ve heard a lot about hair salons. I haven’t seen one hairstylist, who between haircuts, goes out and attacks police or sets something on fire. But we’ve seen all kinds of that stuff during protests. And we know the protest actually increases the spread of the virus.”
      Yet Fauci refused to even admit that protests increase eh spread of the virus. “I said crowds. I didn’t say specifically. I didn’t say protests do anything,” he insisted.
      “But do you understand Americans’ concern? Protesting, particularly according to the Democrats, is just fine, but you can’t go to work, you can’t go to school, you can’t go to church,” Jordan noted.”

      https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/tyler-o-neil/2020/07/31/dr-fauci-theres-no-inconsistency-in-banning-church-and-business-but-allowing-mass-protests-n737783

      At least Fauci should recommend the protestors wear goggles. As I said in June, what the protests represented was in effect a mass jail break by the youth who were tired of seeing their lives go by as prisoners. It was a massive mistake, which clearly did not work. Now Fauci is reduced to babbling about goggles.

    345. Bitterlaw says:

      A crowd is a crowd. A protest is a crowd. The Fauci hate is amazing here.

    346. janz says:

      It’s less “Fauci hate,” than disgust for someone having so much power over the COVID discussion, who hypocritically zig zags around in a double standard pattern – doubling down on some, regarding numbers of people to be around, while giving nuanced acceptance of crowd size for others, usually associated with left-sided protests.

    347. Bitterlaw says:

      in the summer i used to work for a 24/7/365 facility for teen girls (mostly girls) with severe mental issues, e.g. schizophrenia, bi-polar, etc. many who had been horribly, often sexually, abused.

      we had a girl from one of those romanian orphanages for example, that had been chained to a bed for years, one from the usa who had been locked in a college until she was eight — (had never seen grass until she was 8) — many who had been sexually abused by parents or grandparents etc. these girls were on a laundry list of strong medicines. it was a last resort institution before being locked up.

      but they are often very violent with bursts of unpredictable rage, so i just was getting too old for it, and had been punched too many times.

      now-a-days it is just young children in special education, e.g. a couple of down’s syndrome children, a few autistic children, some speech problems, etc.

      to answer your other question, no, i don’t think these children can be taught online.

      351/364- As a SPED teacher in N.C. I can tell you that the caseloads are primarily kids with mild learning disabilities and autistic children. There are children with other diagnoses but the ones I mentioned are the the most prevalent. They can learn online with good instruction. It is not better than one on one but I found it pretty effective. The biggest obstacle was often the chaos in the background. It could be another sibling or a parent in the background either doing something or pretending to do something. This really throws the kids off. In person is better but my kids did not regress in remote learning.

    359. Hugh says:

      My granddaughter was in kindergarten last year and my daughter said the online learning was a gigantic waste of time. The worst part was my granddaughter hated it would not do her work and it sucked up 4 hours a day of my daughters time. She said if they did elearning this year she’d have to quit her job. Good news in her county k thru 6 is 100% brick and mortar in Bradenton fl. In liberal broward it’s all elearning the poor will suffer by far the most. The teachers and parents want to go back but politics means more than kids.

    360. Bitterlaw says:

      Pitch – He said crowds pose a risk. Why does he have to specify protests when protests are also crowds?

    361. Hugh says:

      Because Bitter. He has made very specific comments about other gatherings such as sports. Jordan did a poor job in that he should have followed up with quotes from fallacy on other gatherings. It was an opportunity missed. My best description of fallacy is he’s a weasel

    362. Bitterlaw says:

      Hugh – You have been very supportive of Trump. I can’t recall you criticizing him at all. How does your faith in him handle him keeping a “weasel” as an advisor?

    363. Tina says:

      I’ll prepared and incompetent.

    364. Bitterlaw says:

      Nice try, Tina. Trump chooses to speak with him and, on many occasions, to agree with him. On others, he disagrees with him. Trump made Fauci a member of his team. He keeps him on the team.

    365. Tina says:

      He is still not prepared and incompetent,

      You cannot point to one correct decision so far that has worked.

      And don’t say fabric masks.

    366. Pitchaboy says:

      While quick to opine on the risks of opening, he appeared to doge and refused to comment on the large crowds of protesters. It was not the testimony of an esteemed doctor and public health expert; it was that of a political hack. He should have flat out said that both of these actions contributed to the surge. That is the truth. Pure and simple.

    367. Hugh says:

      Really Bitter? I have referred to Trump as an as s clown and a jerk at least 50 times on this site. Two days ago I had multiple posts criticizing his Tweet on pushing out the election date.

    368. dblaikie says:

      I believe that Dr. Fauci is a brilliant man. However I also believe that his long career in Government has made him afraid to go against the grain. In this enviornment to say that the protests were bad would quickly be condemned into Black Lives Matter is bad. In this woke world that cannot be done.

      My main beef with Dr. Fauci is his negative obsession with HCQ. The Henry Ford Health System is a world class facility. Some physicians who are the front lines of this pandemic swear by it. The kind of studies he advocates would take months. The drug has been proven to be safe. If a physician wants to prescribe he or she should be able to do so.

    369. dblaikie says:

      Bitter, that he keeps Fauci on his team seems to me a good thing. I know your deep negative feeling toward Trump personally and how you will hate yourself in the morning after you have voted for him. Frankly to put your feeling about what is best for the Country above your personal feelings is admirable!

      However having a person who many disagrees with him on his team, who many times he follows his advice, that must bring you a crumb of comfort.

      Dr. Fauci explains why the U.S. has continued to see a surge in cases while European countries have seen a sharp decrease.

      He says most European countries shut their economy by 95%, while functionally the U.S. only shut its economy down by 50%.

    372. Gordon Allen says:

      Fauci could have noted our ” surge” in reported ” cases” might have something to do with the fantastic number of tests we’re running,which puts the Europeans so far in the rear view mirror be they can’t be seen with a telescope. But that might be construed as favorable to Trump. Is that permitted in Fauci’s world?

      The fact he hasn’t done it means he see the value Fauci provides to his overall strategy, and more importantly, his credibility.

      Fauci seems never to have considered the contradiction between calling for restricting weddings, churches and other gatherings while at the same time saying nothing about restricting vastly larger protests. His bewildered expression when Jim Jordan asked about this was priceless!

    379. Bitterlaw says:

      Fauci said avoid crowds. Apparently, he had to say BLM crowds.

    380. jason says:

      Things Fauci actually said:

      “In a speech on July 21, Fauci reiterated that it’s important to “avoid crowds” and stay “more than six feet away” from other people. Coronavirus spreads via respiratory droplets expelled from your mouth and nose, which can travel about six feet before dropping to the ground. So avoiding close contact with other people is essential to stop the spread.”

      That would seem to include protesters.

      “Fauci has expressed concern about certain areas not following reopening guidelines, with people not wearing face masks and gathering in crowds. “There are minimal things, to the extent possible that all individuals should be doing,” Fauci told Newsweek. “One of them is wearing a mask, the other is keeping a physical distance and avoiding crowds.”

      Avoiding “gathering incrowds” would seem to include protesters.

      “Many people outside the coronavirus’s early hotspots thought public health advice to wear a mask and socially distance didn’t apply to them. “That’s a recipe for disaster,” said Fauci in June.”

      That seems to include protesters.

    381. jason says:

      while at the same time saying nothing about restricting vastly larger protests.”

      Zzzzzzzzz…..

      I think when he says avoid crowds he means avoid crowds.

      Some interesting st-ff in the Emerson poll.

      The disparity between the in person and and mail voting voters is very scary.

      Most disappointing is how young people intend to vote. Even more is the 30-49 group, they should know better.

      The suburban split (55-44) is not as scary, this includes heavily democratic suburban areas and suggests Trump will be competitive in swing state suburbs.

      It reinforces my view that it is a referendum on socialism, not Trump, and socialism is winning.

      I am impressed a majority view another $1200 as too much or enough. I would have thought it would be lower.

      “As coronavirus cases continue to grow across the country, the November presidential election appears to be unchanged, as former V.P. Joe Biden holds a four-point lead over President Trump –– 50% to 46%. (n=964, +/-3.1%, likely voters). This is the same magnitude as June’s national poll, where Biden led Trump 47% to 43%. Since June, the number of undecided voters has declined from 10% to 4%.

      A majority of voters, 53%, still think Trump will be re-elected in November.

      With the safety concerns of voting in person due to COVID-19, a majority (58%) of voters still plan to vote in person, while 43% plan to vote by mail. Among those who plan to vote in person, Trump leads 65% to 32%; Biden leads with those who intend to vote by mail, 76% to 20%.

      Biden also leads Trump with those aged 18-29 (63% to 27%), those 30-49 (56% to 41%), those living in urban areas (68% to 28%), and those living in suburban areas (51% to 44%). Trump leads Biden among those aged 50-64 (55% to 44%), those 65 or more (58% to 39%), and those living in rural areas (67% to 31%).

      Regarding Trump’s overall job approval as president, 45% of voters approve and 51% disapprove, a slight increase in both numbers from June (43% favorable /50% unfavorable). Among Independent voters, 42% approve and 55% disapprove.

      At the Congressional level, a plurality (46%) of voters saying they would vote or lean toward voting for the Democratic candidate in their district for U.S. Congress, while 41% said they would vote or lean towards voting for the Republican candidate. Independent voters are split, with 34% leaning Democrat, 35% leaning Republican, and 31% still undecided.

      A plurality of likely voters, 43%, said that a proposed second stimulus check payment of up to $1,200 for individuals does not go far enough to help amid the coronavirus epidemic. Nineteen percent (19%) of voters said this payment would be too much, and 38% thought it was sufficient. Among white voters, a plurality (44%) of voters say the $1200 amount is sufficient, while in every other ethnicity, a plurality said this payment does not go far enough.

      He needs to step it up with his present standing with independents if he wishes to win.

      Dr. Fauci explains why the U.S. has continued to see a surge in cases while European countries have seen a sharp decrease.

      He says most European countries shut their economy by 95%, while functionally the U.S. only shut its economy down by 50%.

    406. jason says:

      Even if Trump wins, I am pessimistic about the future of capitalism in America.

      The fact so many people under 50 are willing to vote for a socialist agenda makes me think that another Trump term will only delay the inevitable, maybe by as much as 10 years but not much longer.

      We have known for decades that the academic intelligentsia in this country was far to the left.

      I don’t think we knew what a profound job they have done in convincing students they should seek a different type of government, especially since many of these students were the greatest beneficiaries of this system.

      Fauci: “I said crowds. I didn’t say specifically. I didn’t say protests do anything,” he insisted.

      This was a timid answer by Fauci, who should have addressed the issue of what was happening at the protests head on, rather than trying to be politically correct.

      In California in June, there were hundreds of thousands of mostly young people on the streets daily for several weeks. It was like a giant Spring Break; almost no social distancing and a substantial percentage of people without masks. When I went outside I was often walking though large crowds. After these events there has been a massive spike in cases and deaths in California; our numbers may soon resemble those in New York soon.

      Fauci should have spoken out; and stated the way these events were taking place was dangerous. While totally supporting the right of people to exercise their First Amendment rights, Fauci should have pointed out it was urgent that that they incorporated social distancing, mask use, and other precautions. At this point, besides wearing goggles, can anyone tell me what the U.S. strategy is to address the coronavirus, in what appears to be a second wave? Unlike Sweden, we don’t seem to have a set framework.

      There were also more new cases reported in July (254,606) than the entirety of the pandemic before this month (238,041), though the growth appears to have leveled off as the month’s end nears. There were about 5,000 fewer cases in the past week (61,961) than the previous one (66,651) — a decrease of about 7%.”

      This guy is a federal judge.

      ”I do think it might be appropriate to require any federal law enforcement officer who steps out of the federal courthouse building to wear a unique identifying code,” Simon said during a 90-minute teleconference with lawyers involved in the case. “I’m taking this very, very seriously.”

      The judge said he was considering ordering that federal agents — including scores of officers the Trump administration dispatched to the city from across the country — wear numbers about 8 inches high that would make it easier to assess whether some officers are violating a temporary restraining order the court issued last week.”

      Jason, I think if you are an independent and we’re unsure, you had to look at Biden and wonder.

      He literally copied and pasted trumps coronavirus Plan. Biden said he would implement the plan now, but trump has already implemented that plan since March.

      Then, Biden said Trump should appoint somebody in charge of the vaccine now. Yet, that person (military guy) was appointed in April.

    464. Tina says:

      I think it’s Republicans registering to vote for Biden in those battleground states.

      -Jebot.

    465. jason says:

      Unfortunately Tina, most independents get their news from the partisan, dishonest, and biased MSM.

      They won’t get that information.

    466. Tina says:

      Arizona remains a concern, it’s those independents,

      Yet, Rs still have a 140000 advantage.

      The R Senator is weak. She may be a drag. A lot of Rs also appear upset with Doucey and the “lockdowns.”

      While Arizona did not go full lock down, the mobility numbers fell off as if they did.

    467. Gordon Allen says:

      The other interesting thing is that 54% think Trump will win. This seems to be common across the polls whatever the matchup number is. It may not mean everything, but it certainly doesn’t mean nothing either. Seems clear from the poll that an improvement in the COVD situation,or a vaccine breakthrough will put Trump in a very good position.

    468. jason says:

      I am afraid Amos Stoltzfuss might be a closet Dem.

      He told me he plans to practice social distancing and will avoid crowds at least until 2040.

    469. Tina says:

      So, in short,

      Trump and Biden’s coronavirus plan are the same.

      Trump implemented the plan back in April; Biden wanted it implemented now.

      Trump has a vaccine soon to be distributed by the military. The military person was assigned in April – see Opertion Warp Speed.

      Trump was early in the China Travel Ban (January). At the time, Biden ridiculed him as being racist. Biden said he would have banned travel months later. Fallacy has said that the China travel ban saved lives..

    470. Tina says:

      I think he know he has at least 2 vaccine candidates by Fall.
      If this is correct, he should let Fallacy take the lead in announcing. (FDA would have made the approval).

      The vaccine is Fallacy’s baby and while I disagree with Fallacy, it’s a honorable thing to do.

      It would carry needed gravitas.

      Predictit has it at 60-40 Biden, 334 to 204 EVs.

    474. jason says:

      If I was running Trump’s campaign, I would gamble on winning FL and NC.

      I would put resources in AZ, WI, NH, ME-04 and in one or more states as fallbacks in case he loses one of the above. MN, MI, PA are the most obvious ones.

      I would say NV but the ballot harvesting thing pretty much puts it out of reach.

      Of course the blunt truth is the virus,like the three pandemics before it,is going to run its course, lockdowns or not. They only slow it down so it lasts longer. Those who will get sick will get sick,and those who will die will die; just when is the issue,and do you crush the economy to stretch it out longer. If Fauci et Al had real leadership stature they would be honest about it. You do what you can individually to protect yourself,try to isolate the most vulnerable,and work like hell on therapeutics and a Vaccine. All the rest is political smoke and mirrors posturing to no helpful effect.

    478. jason says:

      No, it is not Fauci’s role to do that. That is the President’s decision to decide how to proceed.

      That is the big mistake the Fauci haters are making, not understanding what Fauci’s role is in the Coronavirus Task Force.

      Trump can exhibit leadership. To do that, he takes the advice of Fauci and others into consideration.

      Fauci is not there to exhibit any “leadership”. That is a crock of BS.

    480. jason says:

      hose who will get sick will get sick,and those who will die will die”

      Not really. Get sick, probably, die no.

      If I had pre-existing conditions I would rather get infected later than sooner, because sooner you would have not had the benefit of a lot of procedures/drugs not available at the start, not to mention the deluge of other cases seen in places like NY and NJ.

      You have a better chance of surviving COVID now than you did at the outset.

    481. jason says:

      The people who think Fauci is too political don’t see the irony in advocating that he should be more political.

      The same people that are critical of Fauci for criticizing reopening rallies are critical of him for not criticizing protesters enough.

      The hypocrisy is astounding.

      Why do you persistently carry water for Fauci? Until March I had nothing against him because I had never heard of him.For a month or more I was OK. Since then it has become apparent he is a small man over his head.
      Trump in no way could say what I just did without the medical community leadership( Fauci) first being candid based on their own knowledge. It would have been political suicide to actually be honest without ” expert” backup. You know that as well as I do. Fauci knows this because from the beginning he asserted a vaccine wouldn’t be ready for 18 months!! Heck,based on past pandemics it would have largely run its course by then. Now candor is too late, except for after November 3

    484. hugh says:

      Jason. My view is that what people are advocating for is that Fallacy’s comments be as non-political as possible. There was two different ways for him to accomplish that. 1 is simply talk of crowds of any kind (outside, inside without masks with masks, etc.) In other words be agnostic about the purpose of the crowds. 2 is to speak up specifically about different kinds of crowds. Fans at sporting events, Michigan rally, BLM protests, beach etc. Notice 3 of the 4 above he was totally comfortable talking about specifically. Which one doesnt fit? He chose to be very specific about some crowds and not blm protesters. He then pretended last week that he just give information and the politicians can apply it. But he was lying. Jim Jordan screwed up. The minute Fallacy started to pretend he does talk about specifics Jordan should have thrown 5 or 6 quotes straight at him. But Jordan was unprepared. It was disappointing. However, on the flip side he was very supportive against the dems when they tried to attack Trump. The one thing, I can not figure out for the life of me is why he has not been more clear on Hydrocloriqan (misspelled). He consistently, downplays it. Seems like most of the world is using it extensively and claiming success when used early and with antibiotics and zinc. Studies now back it up. Yet he would rather not irritate democrats and potentially save lives. Its beyond me.

    485. hugh says:

      446. I wonder if that law gets challenged in court. It is ripe for voter fraud. The key with NV is the union vote in Vegas. I wonder how excited they will be to vote for Joe Biden and the dems if its is republicans pushing to open the economy while dems are pushing to keep it closed. Vegas has been decimated. If the casino workers are angry who will they take it out on. I think its an open question. Also, maybe they just sit home. Getting bused to the polling station during paid time off like in past elections is different than being unemployed and sitting on your you know what at home, struggling to make ends meet. I also wonder about in state like FL how the old souls to the polls is going to go this year?

      With 93 days to go the conversation around the Presidential race is around how tight and how close GA/IA/NC/OH/TX are. Note no serious conversation (Except maybe among partisans in here) are around AZ/FL/MI/PA/WI. Trump badly needs that to change because right now all we’re doing is debating how badly he loses. Biden getting 400+ electoral votes is as much in play as Trump somehow roaring back in the next 3 months to win. If by election day we’re still seeing tight polling in Tilt R states i’d bet big on Biden because not even a 2016 type error would save Trump in that circumstance.

      Phil, New Jersey is not the whole nation. Each state has deadlines for dropping out because of ballot printing. If Democrats replace Biden in, say, Florida after the deadline, Biden will still be on the ballot. (The Florida Supreme Court now has a GOP majority that won’t bail the Dems out.) That will immediately throw the Dems’ chances of unseating Trump into chaos because it will either cause Trump to win states Dems may have beaten him in or ensure Dems can’t get enough electoral votes to hit 270.

      In the latter scenario, the House will choose the President, and the Senate the Vice-President. That outcome would depend on which side controls the majority of House delegations and Senators. We could then conceivably see a President of one party and a Veep of the other.

    494. Phil says:

      Good point, Wes. Florida law would be a huge problem for them. I hadn’t thought of that. I didn’t realize the Florida Supreme Court was a Republican majority.

      Why do you persistently carry water for Fauci?”

      Because I think the attacks on him are asinine and reflect a profound ignorance of what his role is in the taskforce and I think 99% of the attacks on him are rooted in cheap partisan politics. I think the people attacking him are hypocrites, they want Fauci to be some kind of spokesman for Trump’s ideas when that is not his role.

      What is the upside on attacking Fauci exactly? To play into the Democrat’s hands and get Trump to dismiss him from the taskforce?

      The fact Trump entertains opinions from experts that he might not agree with undercuts the MSM arguments against him, that he is anti-science, a dictator, blah blah blah.

      So they are left with trying to create a rift between him and Trump, assisted by a lot of useful idiots on the conservative side.

      The final essay from Herman Cain. Herman Cain is the true heir of MLK. MLK would be appalled at BLM today. May Herman Cain always walk in Sunshine in God’s loving arms. This is the essay:

      While my time here has now come to an end, I want you to know that in the last days and hours of my life you inspired me. You filled me with hope about the next chapter of the great American story when you used your power to make a difference in our society. Millions of people motivated simply by human compassion laid down the burdens of division. Around the country and the world you set aside race, class, age, language and nationality to demand respect for human dignity.

      Though I was surrounded by two loving parents, plenty of brothers, sisters and cousins, their love could not protect me from the unholy oppression waiting just outside that family circle. Unchecked, unrestrained violence and government-sanctioned terror had the power to turn a simple stroll to the store for some Skittles or an innocent morning jog down a lonesome country road into a nightmare. If we are to survive as one unified nation, we must discover what so readily takes root in our hearts that could rob Mother Emanuel Church in South Carolina of her brightest and best, shoot unwitting concertgoers in Las Vegas and choke to death the hopes and dreams of a gifted violinist like Elijah McClain.

      Like so many young people today, I was searching for a way out, or some might say a way in, and then I heard the voice of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on an old radio. He was talking about the philosophy and discipline of nonviolence. He said we are all complicit when we tolerate injustice. He said it is not enough to say it will get better by and by. He said each of us has a moral obligation to stand up, speak up and speak out. When you see something that is not right, you must say something. You must do something. Democracy is not a state. It is an act, and each generation must do its part to help build what we called the Beloved Community, a nation and world society at peace with itself.

      Ordinary people with extraordinary vision can redeem the soul of America by voting and participating. Voting and participating in the democratic process are key. The vote is the most powerful nonviolent change agent you have in a democratic society. You must use it because it is not guaranteed. You can lose it.

      You must also study and learn the lessons of history because humanity has been involved in this soul-wrenching, existential struggle for a very long time. People on every continent have stood in your shoes, though decades and centuries before you. The truth does not change, and that is why the answers worked out long ago can help you find solutions to the challenges of our time. Continue to build union between movements stretching across the globe because we must put away our willingness to profit from the exploitation of others.

      Though I may not be here with you, I urge you to answer the highest calling of your heart and stand up for what you truly believe. In my life I have done all I can to demonstrate that the way of peace, the way of love and nonviolence is the more excellent way. Now it is your turn to let freedom ring.

      When historians pick up their pens to write the story of the 21st century, let them say that it was your generation who laid down the heavy burdens of hate at last and that peace finally triumphed over violence, aggression and war. So I say to you, walk with the wind, brothers and sisters, and let the spirit of peace and the power of everlasting love be your guide.

      although … legally speaking …

      i would think 16 is the age of consent in many places

      just not at the island, where it is 18

      so i would guess many dems will say it is not a big deal

    533. lisab says:

      but the #metoo movement is taking a hit

      who could have predicted that a bunch of hollywood stars and democrat politicians would have been hedonists?

      7 minutes until splashdown. God speed and good luck.

    535. PresidentPaul! says:

      Considering Israel had ammunition on Clinton during the late 90’s, you have to assume he was a puppet president in that respect.

    536. Chester says:

      The Rotting Carcass has a tough choice. He needs to select a VP who is

      -Black
      -Transgender
      -Muslim
      -Gay
      -Retarded
      -Hates Police
      -Hates America
      -Doesn’t understand debt
      -Never worked a real job
      -Is a freak

      given this criteria,

      there is an obvious choice …

      joe biden

    538. JohnJ says:

      558

      The current batch of VP’s fit the bill. The all certainly hate America, that’s for sure.

    539. Chester says:

      Actually its a easy choice. Who am I kidding. Every Dem hates America.

    540. Chester says:

      “given this criteria,

      joe biden

      BINGO!

    541. lisab says:

      i am thinking one of the reasons the dems want to keep everything closed

      is so the clintons do not have to give a speech at the dem convention

      in a normal year, there would have been some #metoo people there

      now … the clintons can try to lay low

    542. Wes says:

      Joe Biden isn’t black. Jessie Smollett fits the bill.

      —————————–

      i hope you are not assuming his race

      he identifies as black

    545. Bitterlaw says:

      The Dems have to stay with Biden. The Sanders supporters would riot if Biden was replaced and it was not with Bernie (2d place in delegates). If the did replace Biden with Bernie, Trump wins.

    546. Bitterlaw says:

      I have never liked Bill Clinton as a person or as a politician. That said, I hope that allegations against him with underage girls are untrue for 2 reasons. First, if true that would means there were victims of vicious, hateful crimes. Second, it would mean that Clinton had perpetrated crimes that I cinder equal to or worse than murder. Killing takes a life. Sexual abuse takes a soul.

    547. lisab says:

      newsweek is now reporting clinton was on the island with two young girls

      now … who knew newsweek still existed?

      but still … it is a far left mag and they reported this

    548. According says:

      I see comments on twitter stating that Trump is closing in the polls.

      This election has always been close. You should have never been trusting in the D + double digit polling. It has been close, and it will stay close. Most likely aren’t going to see a big win by either one.

      —————————————–

      I am worried that a close election means that the trump supporters won’t be swept away

      Nothing bad happened under Obama, despite what people here said. It does not matter if the Democrats take over the White House, Senate and House. Obama proved this.

      i think that ship has already sailed

      supposedly they have a huge supply of pictures and videos already

      What are your thoughts on Hawley for President 2024? My favorite Senator at the moment.

    552. Gordon Allen says:

      Jason. Don’t worry Fauci won’t do any of those things. He is after all a bureaucrat. Your man crush on this guy is astounding. Incidentally,I suspect I have a better handle on government bureaucracy than you; unless you’re one yourself.

    553. Wes says:

      I’ve been a longtime fan of Bill Clinton because I admire his personal magnetism and political skills. If he raped girls on Epstein’s Island though then I want him flayed alive and buried up to his neck in an African ant hill.

    554. mnw says:

      RE: “The Democrats are going to have to make a decision.”

      They already did that, when they selected pledged delegates in primary elections.

      Everything else is Fantasy Island wishcasting.

      I think conspiracy theory plays a part in all the “replace Biden” nonsense. The elected Democrat delegates, pledged to Biden & selected by him, are just little pawns, you see, absolutely in thrall to their Invisible, Unidentifiable, Unnamed masters!

      When you ask these idiots, “What is the mechanism for replacing Biden, please? Since he has a majority of the delegates, & they’re required to vote for him on the first ballot?” What you get in reply is, “They’ll FIND a way! Never mind all that stuff about primaries & delegates, you naive fool!”

      just to be clear, he is not accused of violently raping them

      he is accused of having sex with two underage russian teen girls (or more)

      who were trafficked teens … teens promised careers in modeling in exchange for sex and possibly purchased from their families

    556. Wes says:

      In other words, he raped underage girls, Lisa, if the allegations are true. My point stands.

    557. lisab says:

      there is a difference between statuatory rape

      vs

      rape

      and it may end up as sexual abuse rather than statuatory rape

      it is not clear. there were strange things going on at that place

      but feel free to stake him to an ant hill, i just dont want to mislead anyone on what was in the deposition
