The dems did short covid fix, kicking the can down road hoping to maneuver republicans and Trump in between rock and a hard place to force agreement on what they want included in this next covid bill.

Is about to get interesting, do believe pelosi and schumer will shortly have a melt down. Might turn out to be more entertaining than, pelosi’s bus to nowhere.

Remember obama’s phone and pen ?
All President Trump needs is his pen to sign executive orders.

concord grape August 7, 2020 at 7:28 PM

Just when I thought POTUS couldn’t sink any lower he now accuses Biden as against God. And would you believe I voted for the slime ball?

Brandi August 7, 2020 at 8:38 PM

It isn’t God that Biden is against… it is , “you know, you know… the thing”
The “thing” he can’t mention in public…. doesn’t even dare mention the name !

Wonder why?

and no… I would not believe you.

Sam August 7, 2020 at 8:44 PM

No you didn’t vote for Trump. Biden is against god. He’s for post term abortion. To me that means murder..god may agree

grandmato3 August 8, 2020 at 9:38 AM

tRump will do whatever it takes to keep his mostly uninformed base believing his every word. Mean while back at one of his golf clubs for the 300+ time, they’ll rant and rave about the dems spending money.

Please describe ‘post term abortion’ ?? You do know what post term means right? Women are in charge of their bodies, not old white men, sorry.

Murder August 8, 2020 at 9:54 AM

Post term abortion is code for murder of a living child, and it is being openly advocated by DemonRats.

Sam August 8, 2020 at 9:59 AM

It means killing kids AFTER they are born. I have every right to speak about children being murdered. Who the hell do you think you are to tell me what I can say and what I can’t. Women shouldn’t kill kids. Maybe when they stop doing that they can be in charge of their bodies.

whome August 8, 2020 at 11:24 AM

C’ mon, Man!

Snickerdad August 8, 2020 at 11:37 AM

This man calls himself a good Catholic but supports late term ABORTION, somebody tell me how that works, if he’d to Gods face what is he going to do to you and me.

@ grandmato3 –
Put your mind at ease, nothing will stop you from terminating the lives of as many babies as you’d like.

Margaret Sanger August 8, 2020 at 2:47 PM

I created Planned Parenthood to rid society of inferior races.

Gittyu[ August 8, 2020 at 3:11 PM

@ grandmato3 A woman is hardly “in charge of her body” if she is so careless she gets pregnant with a child she doesn’t want. And then worse yet, would have an abortion to get rid of it. Such a woman is as far as “in charge of her body” as one can get.

Fred P. August 12, 2020 at 9:39 PM

Grandmato3….

So a “woman being in charge of her body” is enough reason to murder as many “post term” babies as you want.

Guess you’ve never heard of personal responsibility.

You’re sick. Really sick. Sounds like you have three postbterm babies (grand babies)….

Think about it.

Original G August 7, 2020 at 7:39 PM

biden claims Trump has quit on you and America.

Back in January TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) announced it was cutting roughly 200 jobs in IT and outsourcing those jobs.

Fast Forward,
President Trump Fired both CEO and chairman of board of the Tennessee Valley Authority and while he was at it signed an executive order seeking to ensure that the government hired Americans.

“… Let this serve as a warning to any federally appointed board: If you betray American workers, you will hear two words: ‘You’re fired.’ ”
–President Trump

“Despise” is more accurate.

Sam August 7, 2020 at 8:33 PM

I feel bad for them. I’m past the phase of despising them. I did that for 20 years

Justifiable languor August 8, 2020 at 8:25 AM

I am so weary. Even the educated in families (doctors, engineers) can be stupidly ignorant or in some cases willfully stupid, I’m mean ignorant. Some are merely stubborn or madly prejudiced against the R word.

In any case, how dare they resent me for buying a home before they finished school, or got a real job, or inherited. Whatever. Brainwashing is available across all education levels. I have a hole in my heart. I can’t imagine how big it would be if I lost a child to this. Major condolences to heartbroken parents.

Captain Bebops August 8, 2020 at 10:11 AM

Those who you “despise” are not true liberals but wannabees. True liberals embrace freedom and have more in common with today’s conservatives who also embrace freedom. Seems on some issues the right and left has flipped. There’s actually a lot of nuance to politics. The DNC is as much corporate run as the GOP.

greg August 7, 2020 at 7:58 PM

Trump did what he always did; waved something around with the promise of “soon.”

If he spent half as much energy actually fighting covid instead of pretending to fight it, we’d probably be done with it by now.

@Original G: Sorry, Congress controls the purse strings. That’s how the founders set up our republic.

Sam August 7, 2020 at 8:42 PM

Your little brain literally thinks Trump is a ghostbuster. Like he should be out there blasting the virus. Typical mystical thinking you kids excel at. The whole world is dealing with the COVID use your brain. Trump controls everything under national emergency. You do remember him declaring a national emergency right. What you see with your ma and pa Nancy/chuck is pure theater. Wear your helmet

Original G August 7, 2020 at 9:08 PM

Well we’ll have to wait n see how this all works out.

Trump from what I’ve read isn’t spending any money,
he’s gonna let people keep more of their earnings.
So don’t think congress needs to be involved, for that.

“If he spent half as much energy actually fighting covid instead of pretending to fight it, we’d probably be done with it by now.”
OK, What should President Trump have done ? ? ?

Individual state governors are ones shutting down their state’s economy (destroying small businesses and people’s jobs), making shelter in place decisions, masking requirements, etc.

As example do believe there were five democrat governors who sent covid-19 positive patients, not sick enough to be hospitalized, into nursing homes and care facilities. . . . . Not such a smart idea.

I got that blue vote by mail card. They want it returned with my signature. (Supposedly so they can verify signatures) Who’s qualified to do that? What happens if I don’t send it back? They still gonna send a ballot? How screwed up will this election be ?

Gavin Newsom will be staying up all night on blow verifying your signature. Broad strokes, tippy toe bounce left and whalah..verified democrat

Pete August 7, 2020 at 9:51 PM

Got it here too! I won’t be sending it back. I plan on voting in person.

Captain Bebops August 8, 2020 at 10:18 AM

I got one too which also said “our records show you may not have previously received a ballot by mail”. Huh? I voted by mail for the primary. They must not keep good records. You might want to read Greg Palast when it comes to ballot counting especially in California. Greg says he doesn’t trust Alex Padilla as far as he could throw him. Neither do I. I think Padilla helped throw the 2016 primary for Clinton in California.

WC Resident August 8, 2020 at 11:48 AM

The county’s record-keeping seems to be good enough that people in our household that already had been using vote-by-mail did not get the blue card while people who have voted in person got one.

I had assumed that when we vote in person that they retain the signature books. They should already have our signatures regardless of how we have voted in the past.

CalPERS CIO Yu Ben Meng resigns suddenly.

“In 2008, he joined the California Public Employees Retirement Management System, the largest public retirement fund in North America, where he was primarily responsible for asset allocation. Since 2011, Meng Yu has been the asset allocation director of the California public employee retirement management system, managing more than 300 billion US dollars of assets.”

These assets were spent in China, on Chinese military production. That’s the Communist Chinese by the way. So you have CalPERS assets paying to strengthen the Communist military. “Sudden resignation” means the heat is on. More news you don’t get from Yahoo.

https://californiaglobe.com/section-2/calpers-investment-chief-with-long-and-cozy-relationship-with-china-resigns/

Sam August 7, 2020 at 11:12 PM

This is very bad. CalPERS sold out your retirement to china. No wonder dems are going mad trying to cover it up. Very bad news for many folks who spent their life working for the man, building a machine to destroy yourself. The rats are fleeing the ship as the chickens come home to roost. Wonder how this plays out

Hanne Jeppesen August 7, 2020 at 9:47 PM

The assertion that Biden is hurting God is ridiculous, my understanding is God is all powerful and all knowing, a mere mortal cannot hurt him/her. If Trump was a little better steeped in the Bible he might have known that. I believe religion is a fairly private matter, it is not up to me to question someone’s faith, when the profess to be religious. Certainly certain actions or lack there of, one can question a persons commitment to their faith, however it is something I do reluctantly. Biden is a practicing catholic, he recently lost a son, many years ago he lost his wife and infant daughter in a car accident, he says his faith has helped him through these tragedies, it would be nice if those opposing his politics, could have some compassion for him as a man. I was listening to conservative Tom Sullivan’s radio show today, he thinks Trump and his campaign is overdoing the attacks on Biden and it might backfire. By the way Trump is on tape supporting late term abortion, it was before he was a candidate, but he believed it at one time. Don’t throw stones when you live in a glass house.

Sam August 7, 2020 at 11:02 PM

I don’t care about none of that. Post term abortion is murder…murder is against god. It don’t matter how you dice it. Murdering a newborn baby is against god… There’s no possible way to justify it. Joe Biden has no politics to oppose. He has no policy except opposite Trumps. He’s a fumbling old fool who probably lives off gold plated chinese jello.

SF oh August 8, 2020 at 8:32 AM

Of course the loss of a spouse and infant is a tragedy and, I’m sure, Biden suffered tremendously afterwards. However, he wasn’t above smearing the name of the other driver for sympathy and political gain. Several times, Biden said publicly that the other driver “drank his lunch that day”. The other driver was not charged with anything and he, and his family, spent years trying to clear his name. Finally, after he died, a Biden spokesperson said, “Senator Biden fully accepts the Dunn’s family’s word that those rumors were false”. And…. who started those rumors??? Maybe Biden should’ve shown some compassion for a man who probably suffered from survivors’ guilt after a tragic accident. But no, Biden (who was not senile at the time) decided to use his embellished version of the accident for political gain.

Brandi August 8, 2020 at 9:55 AM

Hanne, Trump was once pro choice…. but he “evolved”.

weppin August 8, 2020 at 3:52 AM

Will mail-in voting affect the presidential election? Probably, but no one really knows. If the election results are very close, there will be lawsuits (by the losers) for a recount, which would take months collecting and re-counting these mail-in ballots. And if the election results are not certified by inauguration day, then the Speaker of the House becomes the acting POTUS. Assuming the democrats maintain their majority in the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi would be our acting President. Wow…

Greg August 8, 2020 at 4:38 AM

@Sam

Your argument: Trump cannot do anything to combat the virus. Also: he has national emergency powers that let him do anything he wants to fight the virus.

Okay then.

@Orginal G: Governors shut down because there’s an infectious pandemic killing 100’s of 1000’s of American. This notion that there is a vibrant economy filled with jobs if people isn’t flip a switch is not reality. There is no economy until the virus is under control. If Trump feels that his current handling of the virus is the absolute best he can do, the country certainly seems to agree with him. 😉

Why is abortion coming up? It’s a legal medical procedure. 100k Americans have died since Trump demanded we reopen. That’s murder. Hermain Cain’s death alone can be directly laid at Trump’s feet.

And I ask this sincerely: what is the anti-abortion argument at this point? If grandparents and a percentage of the pop needs to die because “it is what it is” I have no idea why I should fret about a fetus. What’s the logical moral augment now? Innocent life? Hahaha right. That’s obviously pretty high up on the list of priorities for a party that wants to take unemployment UI from starving families during a pandemic.

The Fearless Spectator August 8, 2020 at 9:10 AM

Abortion is coming up because Kanye threw his hat in the ring and he is very upset that he was almost aborted.

Further leftist white people are upset that the percentage of black abortions is much higher than other races in America. In other words, they think they will save black people from themselves. How insulting.

Sam August 8, 2020 at 9:32 AM

Of course you willfully combine separate things like all deprived of knowledge children do. How many times has the defense production act been used? How would you prefer him to “fight” a virus? Let me guess china like lockdowns. Maybe they should just kill us off to protect us. Would that give you the result you are looking for? Maybe you could get Trump out then..lol

I brought up post term abortion to troll you out. Herman Cain was not a healthy individual to begin with. You know that. By all means keep advocating the murder of children after they are born. You sound like a rational person

Sam August 8, 2020 at 9:51 AM

The economy is booming. Notice the market? Notice the job numbers? Notice the unemployment numbers. Fastest “rebound” in history with numbers as evidence. You make huge claims that the economy won’t come back until the virus is under control. The economy never went anywhere. All this depression talk backfired making Trump look even better then he is. Keep on helping guy, the MAGA group really appreciates your support.

Brandi August 8, 2020 at 9:07 AM

Fox news reporter Peter Doocy is apparently Joe Biden’s pick for Vice President.
Riding along a bicycle path Peter asked Joe if he’d chosen a VP to be his running mate Joe replied “Yes” and Peter immediately asked “Who?” to which Joe relied “YOU!”

So there it is Lefticrats… Biden / Doocy 2020.

Greg August 8, 2020 at 11:30 AM

Funniest part of that whole thing is watching Biden zoom by on a bike trolling a fox reporter. Trump can’t even make it down a ramp.

@Sam: unemployment is over 10%. It’s higher than the Great Recession. And there has been *zero* jobs created recently. Those are recovered jobs. And as of now Trump’s biggest economic stimulus ask is for a payroll tax cut, which only helps folks that already have a job.

Facts don’t care about your feelings.

To Do List August 8, 2020 at 11:42 AM

Greg: you are entitled to your own opinion but not your own facts. If you go the the US government websites they show that employment peaked at around 150 million before covid, the lockdown reduced it to 130 million briefly and now it is back to 140 million, about where it was in the boom time of 2006 to 2007. As for unemployment, it reached about 25% in the great depression. The current unemployment rate is just slightly above that which existed in the great recession of 2008.

Sam August 8, 2020 at 11:57 AM

Unemployment under obama was over 10% for 8 years. You can only complain because Trump sparked the largest job growth the country has ever seen prior to the COVID. It’s impossible not to have the only jobs be “recovered jobs” given everyone who wanted a job had one at 2-3% unemployment pre CORONA. Your lame attempts at word games don’t work here. Wait till next week, and the following. It’s way to obvious the only people out of work are the people democrat governors label as non essential. Which really means nothing except they want the economy suppressed artificially to attempt to hurt Trump in the election. It’s not working or you wouldn’t even be here shilling out nonsense. You’d be unemployed too

Sam August 8, 2020 at 12:05 PM

Using the phrase popularized by Ben Shapiro (a conservative) Only further you exposes you as a fraud. “Facts don’t care about your feelings”
I think what your fearful leader said is more appropriate for your arguments. “We chose truth over facts” – Joe Biden 2019

Ricardoh August 8, 2020 at 9:42 AM

I am a Trump supporter but I also think we don’t really need God in politics right now. Yes late term abortion is murder. Many strange things have been said in both directions but what is important now is not letting the country become third world. Joe Biden is delusional if he thinks he can run this country. He can’t even run his mouth. Joe Biden has been lying his way through life forever. Trump says thing many find objectionable but he does the right things for the country. He doesn’t lie or plagiarize. With Trump you know where we are heading with Biden no one knows what he or his string pullers will do next.

Hanne Jeppesen August 8, 2020 at 9:13 PM

Trump doesn’t lie? Alternative facts perhaps. I don’t have no idea where we are headed with Trump, trying to undermine the US postal service, claiming voter fraud before the election, using executive powers, where congress should make the decision. I guess you then had no objections to Obama’s use of executive power? Certainly enough conservatives was upset about it, but I guess when it is your guy it is okay.

Justifiable languor August 9, 2020 at 7:15 AM

My admiration for President Trump grows daily. He gets things done, he took it on the chin, tireless, valiant. A real War Horse. Our Hero. He alone had Vision. Stamina. Heart.

I love seeing him standing among the smug European elite. Alone with his unfailing love for the American people. Without the American money and generosity you would have ugly disarray. Disaster beckons if we go under. Vandalism in fact. If you know history.

RANDOM TASK August 8, 2020 at 10:08 AM

hmmmm
so again here we are bloating and ranting and fuming because trump said something …..
yet your beloved lol man too funny
Biden who says your not black enough and that Mexicans are more divers than blacks and that all blacks have to vote dem

those statements are ok or any by a democrat is this correct
so what about trump comments on dem governors sending covid patients back to nursing homes and wiping the whole place out repeatedly
no media no outrage at people losing their lives because a democrat governor condemned them knowingly

yep figured your bias and hypocrites’
so many people including actors and media and individuals say stuff wrong and misunderstood all the time ….

are we now a society that stabs you the instant your comments are not accepted by the many …..that is what china does …..just so you know

and china apparently stole your retirement money to fund their military under the nose of democrats or rather shared with them In my opinion

no media or Pelosi comments available on that one either

addlepate August 8, 2020 at 12:22 PM

The Democrats can have a funeral for John Lewis, but you can’t for your loved one.

Typical polling locations, i.e., schools and churches, are closed by the Government but Home Depot remains open. Should we make grocery stores, big box stores, and golf courses polling locations.
If outdoor social distancing works for restaurants, outdoor social distancing works for polling places.
Now I get why Pelosi wants to flood the Postal Service with COVID money. It assists the mail-in voting for the most important office holder in the world. Shouldn’t that money go to the expansion of polling locations so citizens can vote in-person?

If grocery stores and big box stores are essential then so are teachers. An opt-out option, without pay should be available. Teachers should PPE-up and get back to work. Don’t blame the teachers, blame the unions.

If businesses were allowed to open up the economy would come roaring back before the election. That wouldn’t be good for Democrats.

If it was Trump’s name was listed on Epstein’s flight logs over two dozen times it would be in the national headlines endlessly, including calls for disclosure in The House of Representatives from Pelosi.

Why do white liberals feel obligated to explain the way forward for black and brown people? Because the libertarian or conservative leaders of the black and brown communities with the best way forward don’t comport with the mainstream media narrative.

It’s not fair that peaceful protestors and rioters are all being lumped into one, but it’s fair to lump all police officers into one?

Rioters gear-up for action. When they receive that action their pictures are posted online to garner sympathy.
Major league sports allow social justice messages on their jerseys and fields, except the messages supporting the enslaved Uyghurs who make their retail merchandise, or the ones rejecting the Communist takeover of Hong Kong.

Joe Biden said:
“I do not buy the concept, popular in the ’60s, which said, ‘We have suppressed the black man for 300 years and the white man is now far ahead in the race for everything our society offers. In order to even the score, we must now give the black man a head start, or even hold the white man back, to even the race,’ I don’t buy that.” Biden told a Delaware-based weekly newspaper in 1975.
“You cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent to put — I’m not joking.” June 17, 2006

Kushner and Trump are not paid a salary for their adviser roles at the White House.

Unpaid presidential advisers Ivanka Trump and husband Jared Kushner earned between $82 million and $135.1 million last year in outside income.

They claimed combined assets worth between $181 million and $755 million. US Office of Government Ethics (OGE) list assets and obligations only in broad ranges.

Ivanka Trump made between $1 million and $5 million in 2018 on her now-shuttered fragrance, handbag, and shoe lines, down from $5 million the year before. She took in almost $4 million in “hotel-related revenue” from an entity listed as “Ivanka OPO LLC,” and described as “Investment in Trump Old Post Office LLC; Washington, DC.

New York city’s partial solution to their covid homeless situation, yet another mayor de blasio’ “idea”, they’re spending $2.275 million PER DAY on housing homeless in Hotel rooms.

NY stripped $1 billion from Police department, and you can figure the fallout from that. City also cut $106 million from sanitation department’s budget. Wildlife is feasting on tons of uncollected garbage, rats and raccoons are multiplying.

Upper West Side residents are now blessed with homeless living on sidewalks, open drug use, public urination and stepping over junkies passed out on the sidewalks.

Moving companies report record business moving people OUT of New York city. Some rich are abandoning the city. The mayor scoffs at the exodus as NY governor a few days ago was begging for the rich to come back.

All either of them need do is look across the river to New Jersey to see the fate awaiting NYC.

@Original G – I absolutely agree with you – it’s all pre-planned. By “token Veep” I meant just that. The Dem’s whole plan is to get moderates and independents to vote Dem. They have absolutely no intention of keeping Biden in office for even a year. He’ll resign or die (and I’m sure Pelosi et al don’t care which one) by mid-2021 and their actual choice for Prez will take over. Their obsession and hatred of Trump has driven them all insane. And we are the victims. They’ve used this “virus” to ruin the economy- ruin people’s lives – destroy beautiful cities – and jeopardize our children’s future – just because they are so filled with hate. I feel fortunate that I grew up when I did: I went to college, had a good job, traveled, and enjoyed my life. But I fear for my grandkids. I can’t even imagine what the US will be when they’re adults.

Sam August 9, 2020 at 7:56 AM

Jealous much? Jared and ivanka have made millions every year. You are attempting to draw a connection to their roles at the White House. I have yet to see a connection.

On the other hand is Burisma, Ukraine, Hunter, Joe Biden.
Why is Joe Biden under investigation in Ukraine?
Why was crackhead Hunter Biden working for a criminal organization?
Why did Hunter fly on air force 2 many times to china?
Why would Joe Biden threaten Ukraine into firing the prosecutor looking into Hunter Biden’s boss?
How many pots did Hunter and Joe have their hands in?
Is it legal for the Vice Presidents kid to work in several other countries that his dad had diplomatic relations with?
Is Joe Biden suffering dementia or is he setting up his Defense?

Come on man! Get real jive turkey joe kno no chine and you ain’t black jack. Don’t forget that thing..

Just a observation….Nancy Pelosi’s face is starting to look like the Griswold’s family station wagon. You know that super deluxe front end with the stacked headlights.

Original G August 8, 2020 at 5:31 PM

Consternation, gnashing of teeth, vein popping and very possibly hand gestures replete with gibberish, could flood Sunday liberal TV politic, now that President Trump used his pen.

Wouldn’t be surprised pelosi is so mad, her ice cream is melting. Awwww . . . . .

greg August 9, 2020 at 4:48 AM

Trump just gifted the Dems with toothless memos yesterday save for one: payroll tax cut. THAT is the only one he put teeth to. Not the extra UI, not eviction moratorium.

So he stood in the middle of his exclusive golf club resort that we pay for him to relax at during a pandemic, and promised a tax cut for people with jobs, nothing to folks out of work, and evictions continue. The optics were *so bad*. Look at it this way: you’re still making fun of Pelosi and her fancy freezer filled with ice cream, which is a normal, smart political impulse. I’ll leave it to you to figure out why, and why that would be related to my description of Trump’s surroundings yesterday.

And he declared social security and medicare are on the table for his 2nd term.

So, all in all, Biden’s greatest gift just keeps on giving.

Sam August 9, 2020 at 7:42 AM

Gregory, Joe Biden is not running for president. Hunter Biden is a crackhead who will roll on his own father when they put the screws to him.
Doesn’t the old playbook get old? “Oh the president plays golf every day, they are coming for your social security and Medicare”. “They are kicking the old and poor into the streets”
“The president is stupid haha look at him”

George Bush 2.0 smears. Do you really think voters are that stupid?

I hope Trump keeps “gifting” Joe Biden. It seems to be working with the pending landslide and all.

Original G August 8, 2020 at 8:21 PM

Seattle could be laying off up to 100 Police officers and Boston is disbanding their SWAT team. Other large cities run by progressive liberal democrats are probably ruminating along those lines too.

At least they’ll save some money reusing some SWAT equipment for their unarmed Social Workers And Therapists taking place of Police officers.

What could go wrong ? ? ?
What about all those other great ideas progressive liberal democrats have tried that worked . . . . . . I got nuthin’

Sam August 8, 2020 at 9:23 PM

Social workers and therapists can go fly a kite. Unless they are a sworn officer of the law they better keep their distance. I have my right to remain silent, and to due process. I’m not sure what they are trying to do here but I think they are trying to create a workaround to our constitution. Pay close attention to the powers these social workers try and use

Cautiously Informed August 9, 2020 at 8:58 AM

Here’s an idea:
The mega-liberal city governments that hate the police could issue the social workers big feathers. Then, when the social workers get confronted by crazy aggressive violent psychopaths, they could tickle them with their big feathers, and then everyone will be happy, and it will be a big happy unicorn world!

Sam August 9, 2020 at 7:26 AM

No taxation without representation. The taxing of income has been illegal from day one. Just like the federal reserve act and the IRS.

Hillary won the popular vote so what are you even talking about? Bernie sanders would never have been elected as we are not a communist country and his socialist wish list was repulsive to most Americans.

Joe Biden is an idiot. Joe Biden is scared to debate as he says something stupid every single day. It’s elder abuse. You’re delusional if you think Trump wouldn’t mop the floor with that guy. I actually don’t want them to debate as it would make Trump look bad for ripping apart a weak person. Like a real man beating an antifa soy boy, it’s just not fair and unfair fights are just bullying.

Now Trump can’t fill arenas? You are hella funny. Trump could fill an arena in Portland Oregon or Seattle if he wanted.

Same old song and dance. George Bush is gonna get rid of you social security, and kick millions of oldies off Medicare. Democrat tactics are so lame. You try and rule with fear. How does it feel with people not believing your crap anymore? Keep trying Gregory I appreciate the entertainment.

HappyPappy August 9, 2020 at 11:53 AM

Biden is the hero of his fabled stories. All through his career, feeding at the govt trough, talking about himself, he embellished and flat-out lied in ways that made him appear more than he really was.
He lied to make himself seem involved when he claimed to have participated in the Civil Rights Movement when he did not. He even lied to get sympathy, like in the tragic death of his first wife and daughter, which he has claimed involved a drunk driver. But no alcohol was involved. Somehow it made sense to him?
What kind of a man does such things?
He was many years younger, so senility wasn’t the problem. The answer is that he is a terribly insecure guy.
Clearly Biden’s long history of lying is to elevate his stature within the DNC.
He’s also lied about law school claiming was “the only one in my class to have a full academic scholarship” and “winning a moot court competition” and being “listed as an outstanding student.” And the full academic scholarship? Give me a break. He isn’t even smart enough to know all those lies can be easily discovered.
Those lies were exposed by none other than the New York Times in 1987, back when they were still a real newspaper, not just an arm of the leftist media.
The Times also reported on Biden’s problem with plagiarism in law school, something left out of his fantastical bragging.
Even if I were a far left lunatic democrat, I couldn’t vote for that sad pathetic man.

SF oh August 9, 2020 at 12:17 PM

The media is starting to drop hints about the Dems’ future plans. This morning, CBS Sunday Morning did a puff piece about Gerald Ford. I was wondering why CBS would be doing a very complimentary story about a Republican. Then I realized that it was, basically, subliminal messaging to start getting people used to the idea that they’ve got up their sleeves. They raved about Ford being the only person to serve as VP & President without being elected to either office. He was appointed VP when Spiro Agnew was out – then ascended to Prez when Nixon resigned. The Dems know that their followers are anti-history so most have probably never heard of Gerald Ford. So they’re getting their message out there: “It’s happened before so don’t be surprised when it happens again”. If elected, within six months it’ll be “bye bye” for Dementia Joe.

Kirkwood August 9, 2020 at 3:44 PM

I remember the humor about the klutziness of Gerald Ford, who also played golf. Someone said he got a Birdie, an Eagle, two turkeys and a seagull!

Unlike other nations, Sweden avoided complete lock-down. Non-essential businesses didn’t close, folks kept going to restaurants, their kids stayed in school, and very few people have bothered with face diapers.
Sweden did the exact opposite of what most Americans tragically still believe is necessary to reach the outcome that Sweden did.
By now, Democrats notwithstanding, it should be obvious to any rational, thinking person that the size of the response in most of the world (not including Sweden) has been totally disproportionate to the threat.
In other words, all of the lock-downs will have been meaningless. Unless you count the ciaos, division, and hate that was generated by the lunatic left.

Original G August 10, 2020 at 9:06 PM

But Hey this is California, it’s run by democrats !

Remember back when a now congressman was chairman of the California Senate Transportation and Housing Committee, that half a Bay Bridge that was $ 5 Billion over budget, ten years late and it’s rod problems?

Original G August 11, 2020 at 10:22 AM

This go around it’s lookin’ like the get out the Black vote, not working out so well for democrats. Happens every four years when there’s a Presidential election. An always big cities controlled by democrats allow rioting, looting, arson etc. Destroying small businesses, jobs and further impoverishing their citizens. Or is it by long term design to ensure a voter block, dependent upon government for their financial well being ? ? ?

Problem is they never manage to maintain control of their “spontaneous” creations. An this time it has metastasized to levels not seen before due to their over a decade of degradation of Police. Starting with obama,
“Cambridge police acted stupidly”.

Large cities limiting riot control methods Police may use. Liberal prosecutors overcharging Police officers and in most cases those charged found innocent or charges are thrown out.

Most troubling is number of prosecutors gaining office with help of a multi billionaire with an agenda. In one large city 29% of felony cases were dropped. In some large cities prosecutors flat out let it be known “quality of life crimes” would not be pursued, public deification – urination, prostitution, etc. No incentive for a person to seek help they need to better their quality of life. An as we already know personal drug use in CA is all but decriminalized state wide.

But YOU must want all of this, because YOU keep reelecting same progressive liberal democrats who are facilitating this decline of society.

What does is say about a nearby affluent city, and to predacious criminals, when there’s YouTube video of Police standing around as looters run rampant thru it’s upscale downtown???
Inaction equals permission.

If there is no deterrence thru threat of incarceration,
there will be lawlessness.

Those in public office who betray trust of society and
allow lawlessness do not deserve reelection.

Brandi August 12, 2020 at 8:31 AM

Kamala is Jamaican & Asian (Indian) is she even 50% Black?

Did Biden only keep 1/2 of his racist/sexist promise to make a Black Woman his running mate?…. not that it matters to me, I don’t make decisions based on race, but Joe made it clear that it was vitally important that the VP be a “Black Woman”.

Joe promised us blackberries & gave us fruit cocktail.

Hanne Jeppesen August 12, 2020 at 11:36 AM

I believe since her father was Jamaican that counts as black, hardly anyone is 100% anything. Judging from your posts you are not about to vote for a Biden ticket anyway. You might entertain the idea that Biden chose her because, in his opinion, she was someone he felt she was someone he would get along with and who also is qualified.

Entertaining August 12, 2020 at 12:01 PM

You might entertain the idea that she’s an affirmative action hire, or you entertain the idea that she got the same position with Biden as she did with Willie Brown.

Brandi August 12, 2020 at 3:42 PM

Look up Donald Harris and see his photo… thin lips and straight hair… very light brown complexion…. Kamala is just slightly more Black than Elizabeth Warren is Native American.

I wonder if Black voters are gonna buy it?

It is public knowledge that Kamala Harris slept her way into California politics by being a very public and shameless escort for Willie Brown who is 30 years older and was very married at the time. It was public. It was an embarrassment. Lot’s of class, but the lower variety.
With Creepy Joe’s photo metaphorically the definition of the 25th Amendment, voters will decide in November whether they want Harris to be their president some time in the next four years since old Joe could drop dead any time.
What does Harris represent to hard-working women across the country who devote years to their careers to rise to higher positions of importance?
