Speak Out: Trump’s Big Lie that Will Die

Posted by Rick Lettau on Mon, Nov 29, 2021, at 2:16 PM:

An appropriate quote from Isaac Asimov…

“There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our cultural and political life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that, my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.”

Nowhere is that more obvious than the influence of the Trump cult on the one-time republican party. Fortunately, the vast majority of Americans, including a significant percentage of former republicans, have recognized the big lie, and are broadly rejecting Trumpism.

The American people are very much more aware and intelligent than Trump will ever give them credit for.

    "Nowhere is that more obvious than the influence of the Trump cult on the one-time republican party. Fortunately, the vast majority of Americans, including a significant percentage of former republicans, have recognized the big lie, and are broadly rejecting Trumpism."

    Leftau, since there is no such thing as "Trumpism" or a "Trump Cult", I will simply dismiss that as a figment of your imagination, brought on by your totally unhealthy fixation with Trump.

    Trump is no longer President. Get it? Yes he kicked Hillart Clinton's behind, but that was 5 years ago. Get over it. It is eating you up.

    Leftau, you lie again. You have no idea what I believe to be true and false, nor will I give you the satisfaction in this regard, either way. And since I am not required to state my beliefs to you, any of your suppositions so far as I am concerned are just that a lie. And you know what that makes you.

  • So Mr. VanGennip refuses to confirm or deny his Trump cult membership. However, he defends him as being a great or good "administrator," and claims it's OK if you "truly believe" a big lie.

    The very idea of cult membership should be so abhorant that "sitting on the fence" is unlikely.

    In Mr. VanGennip's case it seems that he " looks like" a cult member, "walks like" a cult member, and "talks like" a cult member, therefore it's likely he is a cult member.

    And the easiest way to prove he's not a cult member, is to admit the big lie is exactly that.

    The corollary to this is simply that refusal to deny the big lie, strongly confirms belief in the big lie.

How about the Big Lie that is trying to become the first American Dictator who has been overruled by Federal judges over his southern border policies and Turnip Brain Biden's Illegal vaccine mandates - poor Turnip can't win for losing however the problem is that he's taking the USA down with him.

    Why not worry about the current sad state of events and not look back at Trump's presidency - you know that Hyperinflation which actually is an extra tax on all Americans who drive cars or buy the necessities of life, open borders that allow covid infected Illegals entry into the USA, Trillions of Vote Buying Spending that our kids and grandkids will be saddled with, the lost prestige in the World's court of opinions from Biden's senile demented miscues that has our enemies and our allies laughing from his failed disgraceful Afghanistan withdrawal leaving hundreds of American citizens behind along with $82 billion of USA Useable military equipment, going from oil Independence to begging OPEC for more oil that's Dependence, good grief man - LET'S GO BRANDON! Oh, BTW with a 38% approval rating which is about the same as a used car salesman!

    A parting thought on my way to bed.

    Leftau likes to twist what I say and then shine his dim light on it.

    I like to say what I mean and I mean what I say not some twisted version from others. I can speak for my self and I do not need some one like Leftau giving his trumped up version of what I said.

    How many times is it now Leftau that you have tried putting words in my mouth and failed to make them stick. Don't you ever get tired of being corrected?

    There is Aesop's Fables then there is Lettau's Lies.

    -- Posted by Have_Wheels_Will_Travel on Tue, Nov 30, 2021, at 12:10 AM
  • I don't need to "put words in your mouth," you own your spurious claims.

    Recall how it's not a lie if he truly believes it.

    Or that he was a good administrator with a inability to get bipartisan infrastructure passed.

    Or how you "never" refer to others as your inferiors.

    Consider the absurdity of declining to make an honest statement, because it might give someone else "the satisfaction."

    "More Republicans won the House of Representative seats then Democrats in the 2020 Elections yet millions and millions of Americans insisted the 2020 Elections were fraud, rigged, and illegal. Some still do to this day."

    Funny that Republicans swept the country in 2020 while the head of the ticket lost - could it have been that the Presidential votes were subject to fraud and being rigged - millions have the right to disagree with the results....it's called that Freedom thing. Anything done by computer can be hacked - right....those machines don't have a mind of their own but are subject to being hacked.

    But an honest newspaper only presents factual news in the news section of the paper and presents their ideas and propaganda in the editorial section. A reader should not have to investigate to find which is what.

    Trump is not the problem, he is nothing more than a diversion at this point, to take our minds off the career politician who has never held a real job and now sits in the oval office.

    Yes, the one Leftau kept advertising as smarter, more honest and more respected during the 2020 election cycle. It matters not a lick how he got there at this point, Biden is the President, he is incompetent for a variety of reasons and America is suffering because of it.

    220,000 Americans dead,” he said during the Oct. 22 debate. “You hear nothing else I say tonight, hear this. Anyone who … is responsible for that many deaths should not remain as president of the United States of America.”

  • Do you believe that if Trump were president he would have mandated vaccinations for every American?

    Could it be that President Biden was wrong in allowing people a testing option, to avoid vaccination?

    Vaccines and testing have been available for free all year and there's no rational reason for individuals to refuse the shot.

    Maybe all those anti-vaccine activists, anti-mandate lawsuits, and anti-medical science governors had something to do with the numbers in 2021.

    I'd be fairly sure that all of those legislatures and politicians against vaccine mandates were already vaccinated themselves.

    What is your point? Biden said he was going to stop the Virus and that was not conditional on anything, and he has not. He said a President should resign with that may deaths and there was no vaccine, Now we have more deaths and a vaccine, why doesn't Biden resign. Oh Lord what am I saying, the Democrats don't have anybody competent to replace him, even though he is incompetent himself? Wow, what a mess the Democrats have put us in!

    What is your solution Leftau? You have been lavish with your condemnation of Trump for his handling of the virus, now we have a worse situation, where is your condemnation of Biden for a worse job.

    Leftau, what is so difficult for you to understand that the bulk of the period you so lavishly criticize, there was no vaccine. It was still on the fast track that Trump's administration was responsible for setting up and the vaccine came into being and vaccinations commenced at the end of his term. Biden criticized Trump for restricting travel from disease Hotspot, but is now doing the same thing.

Personally, I kind of liked the old boy, he was closer to Trump than anything in being outspoken. But in all of those years, I have never seen the kind of hatred that was unleashed on Trump.

    It seems the only thing that puts the majority of Americans behind their current President whomever it is at the time, is to have an outside threat like a war or threat of one at least. I would give Bush II and the destruction of the Towers in New York as an example. And that didn't last very long.

    "...you can not illegally force People out of their jobs and livelyhood no matter who you are, no matter the issue."

    Nothing's being done "illegally."

    Any construction worker will lose his job if he refuses the OSHA enforced "Hard Hat Mandate" established by his company.

    Failure to accept company mandated PPE requirements will get you fired faster than you can say "unconstitutional mandate."

    The main difference is that refusing to wear a hard hat harms only the individual violator. Refusing Covid 19 testing can harm the individual, his co-workers, his friends and his family.

  • Mr. Braswell,

    If it were a "Trump" vaccine, why are so many of the unvaccinated cult members dying of Covid-19 because they refused the shots?

    In fact, corona vaccines were being developed by US Army labs in Maryland since the early 2000's and had nothing to do with Trump. His biggest contribution was getting out of the way.

    It's also interesting that residents of "Trump" counties are dying of Covid-19 at rates 3 to 6 times higher than residents of "Biden" counties.

    Wonder why that is?

    Perhaps just one more unintended consequence of the big lie.

    President Trump's speech didn't say what you reported but said - Pence should do the right thing. BTW, Trump had that Freedom of Speech thing on 1/6/21 like any politician or any American citizen has.

    My thinking on this statement was that some of the State's electors would not cast their votes for president due to possible voter fraud in their state and would do an audit of the ballots in that state before certifying. History will prove me and millions as correct!

    ******************************************

    Now then all American citizens need to focus on the current problems with this Demented Administration:

    How's that Biden Hyperinflation working out?

    How's those unconstitutional vaccine mandates working out?

    How's that open southern border that has allowed over one million Illegals with thousands of covid infected ones free entry into the USA since 1/20/21 and became wards of the Government at taxpayers' expense working out?

    How's the covid deaths in 2021 exceeding those of 2020 working out? Didn't Biden say that a president should resign for the deaths of over 200,000 Americans - guess the Biden Sheep has forgotten his Big Lie!

    How's the Afghanistan Withdrawal fiasco leaving 500 plus American citizens in a terrorist country to fend for themselves while leaving $82 billion of USA military Useable equipment compliments from the Woke Gen. Milley working out?

    How's all of those trillions of taxpayers' money spent by Congress with Turnip Brain Biden's approval and given out as Pork working out?

    How's that laughing stock of the world Turnip Brain Biden working out?

    God Help/Save the USA from this Demented Administration and from our Woke Gen. Milley....hopefully Russia and China will not take advantage of America's weakness but I wouldn't count on it!

    Below is an example of what is happening with many in their own midst. The eventual sinking into the reality of a Communist, so called, Utopia.

    Here these tools are saying there will be no Totalitarian Rule. Wait until these Democrat tools and what rhymes with it wake up and find out they were taken. And now they are Subjects rather than Citizens.

    America has been a free country where a kid can leave home with $10 in his/her pocket with the instructions not to lose it and become a self supporting citizen not needing a benevolent government to provide for him/her, or he/she can become a follower of a misguided tool and what rhymes with it.

  • Back in the beginning there was the original lie...

    "My crowd was bigger than Obama's"

    All of this culminated in the big lie of the election being stolen.

    In between there were thousands and thousands of just plain lies. specifically about denial of Covid-19.

    Remember 2020...

    Trump’s Responses to the Coronavirus Outbreak:

    Jan 22 -- “We have it pretty much under control. It’s one person coming from China.”

    Feb 2 -- “We pretty much shut it down coming in from China. It’s going to be fine.”

    Feb 24 -- “The Coronavirus is very much under control in the USA… Stock market starting to look very good to me.”

    Feb 25 -- “CDC & my administrationare doing a GREAT job of handling Coronavirus.”

    Feb 25 -- “I think that’s a problem that’s going to go away. They have studied it. They know very much. In fact, we’re very close to a vaccine.”

    Feb 26 -- “The 15 cases within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero.”

    Feb 26 -- “We’re going very substantially down, not up.”

    Mar 2 -- “You take a solid flu vaccine, you don’t think that could have an impact, or much of an impact on corona?”

    Mar 2 -- “A lot of things are happening, a lot of very exciting things are happening and they’re happening very rapidly.

    Mar 4 -- “If we have thousands of people that get better just by, you know, sitting around and even going to work – some of them go to work, but they get better.”

    Mar 5 -- “I NEVER said that people that are feeling sick should go to work.”

    Mar 6 -- “I think we’re doing a really good job in this country at keeping it down… a tremendous job of keeping it down.”

    Mar 6 -- “Anybody right now, and yesterday, anybody that needs a test gets a test. And tests are beautiful.”

    Mar 6 -- “I like this stuff. I really get it. People are surprised that I understand it. Every one of these doctors said ‘How do you know so much about this?’ Maybe I have a natural ability. Maybe I should have done that instead of running for President.”

    Mar 6 -- “I don’t need to have our numbers double because of 1 ship that wasn’t our fault.”

    Mar 8 -- “We have a perfectly coordinated and fine tuned plan at the White House for our attack on the Coronavirus.”

    Mar 9 -- “The Fake News Media & their partner, the Democrat Party, is doing everything within its semi-considerable power to inflame the Coronavirus situation.”

    Mar 10 -- “It will go away. Just stay calm. It will go away.”

    Mar 13 -- National Emergency Declaration.

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    Now we’ve over 800,000 deaths and over 50 million cases. How many could have been avoided if Trump had acted responsibly and vaccination refusal did not become a political cause?

    Then Democratic candidate Joe Biden excoriated Donald Trump’s response to the disease in an unanswerable indictment of the sitting president. “220,000 Americans dead. If you hear nothing else I say tonight, hear this… Anyone who is responsible for that many deaths should not remain as president of the United States of America.” Well, Turnip Brain Biden when are you going to resign?

    It's now been 118 days since Turnip Brain Biden left behind 500 plus American citizens to fend for themselves in a terrorist country. But hey these citizens are pleased as punch that Biden got all of the military out plus unvetted Afghans while they are at the mercy of the terrorists! Well, Turnip Brain Biden when are you going to resign?

    "Clinton’s inability to let go of her loss to the 45th president is just embarrassing for her at this point."

    It is my observation there are a lot more of the far left cultists who cannot get over Hillary's 5 year old loss. Hillary does not grieve alone.

    Am I not correct Leftau?

    No matter what Trump did or does, he must not be forgiven for trouncing Hillary in 2016. He must be punished!!!

    If it wasn't so tragic it would be funny to watch the Leftist Democratic Party twist and turn and moan and groan in their self pity over Hillary's 2016 Loss to Donald Trump.

    Leftau as usual uou try to cover up facts. THillary and the Democrats went so far as to try and get Electoral College Members to vote differently than they were required by their States to do so. Hillary Clinton only grudgingly conceded and in 2020 advised Biden not to conceded.

    As a matter of fact within 72 hours you started on your 5 year long now whining and criticizing Trump no matter what he did.

    I do not disappear. I rarely miss a day on here. And I point out a number of your lies as we go. I don't have the time to record everything you post. And going back, I do not have time for as, I am for all practical purposes 24 hour a day caregiver for a sick spouse only getting time off is when one of my daughters can spell me. On top of that I am managing and supervising some upgrades on a building I built 22 years ago which gives me some passive income. Therefore I do not have to work in my retirement, like you, or try living on Social Insecurity. I invested in my future retirement as I went. If that were not enough, I am a Board Member serving as President of the HOA in the Villas we reside in. A job I did not need but was shamed into doing because they could not get anyone to run for the position. If you have ever done one of those numbers you will know that it is a thankless job with no pay.

    What I have just told you if you do not understand. I have no time left to record all of your lies on here. I will stick to calling them out as I see them. If that isn't good enough for you, stick to the facts.

    Leftau that Democratic talking point that you chant like a first-grade student has nothing to do with anything here.

Hillary Clinton in my book is morally bankrupt and Joe Biden is incapable of making an intelligent sentence without reading from a note what someone else has written. And way to often he stumbles around trying to do that. As I have said before Trump was not my choice to begin with, Just better than the inferior product the Democrats tried to sell us. I voted against them. Realistically in this country, we have a choice for President between two people the Democrat or the Republican, the rest don't stand a snow balls chance in hell and I don't waste my vote on them. Way too many times the choice is the best of the worst, when voting for a candidate for any office in this country. But that is politics and still night and day better than living in a Communist country where that 90,000 strong group I gave you a link to would like to take us.

    "Nothing I pointed out today are lies."

    Leftau, just in case you thought I would let that slip by, you are mistaken again.

    When you state as a fact this one single sentence as fact, like you did, rather than your opinion you are lying.

    "Your obsessions with Hillary and non-existent socialism blind you even rudimentary common sense."

    Oh and not to mention that it sure could use a grammer check to make an understandable sentence even if it were not a lie.

  • "...not re-elected and fired..."

    The President is employed by and serves at the pleasure of the American people.

    They choose whether to allow him to continue in his position or terminate his employment for unsatisfactory performance.

    Did Trump resign? No.

    Did he retire? No.

    Did he die? No.

    Did he want to continue in office? Yes.

    Did his employer want him to continue in office? Clearly, no.

    Sounds like being fired to me.

    Call it whatever you like, Mr. VanGennip, when someone is terminated for highly substandard job performance, it's being fired.

    What it means Leftau is that I made an error in typing! It is received, got that?

    And there is no help needed on understanding what firing is. Never been fired but have been on the end doing the firing a few times.

    But I do know what a citizen does so far as an elective office, he/she either votes for or against a candidate and it has nothing to do with firing. In fact by our Constitution where the Presidency is concerned the voters do not elect the President nor can they fire him/her at will. The Electoral College elects a President based on the number of votes in a given State. Based on the State it may be all of their votes of part of them, based on the popular vote as I understand it. We do not vote directly for the President or we would have had Broom Hilda in 2016.

    A President is elected, not hired, he/she may be impeached by the House and he/she may be terminated by the Senate. Nowhere have I seen where the word hire or fire enter into the picture. If that ignorant way of terming it is a part of your obsession with the man so be it. I will stick with the way our Constitution and laws term it. You register to vote, you do not register to fire or hire.

    Is that clear to you now Leftau? You are welcome for the help in understanding where your education was lacking.

  • Of course I'm fully knowledgeable of how our system works with regard to presidential politics.

    If you do also, then you're fully aware of the the fact the he was twice impeached and found guilty by a bilateral majority of Senators. It was unfortunate for our nation that enough republican Senators caved to prevent him from being removed from office.

    So since he hung in there, Americans finally "removed him from office."

    The Crime during the Trump Presidency was the wasted time the Democrats used to go after him from day one and failing in every attempt to discredit him.

    Kind of sad your Cult couldn't do the job they were elected to do because they were like you, totally obsessed with Trump. If only they would have done the job they were sent to Washington to do, think of how much better off America would be.

    Leftau, your continued attacks on Trump do absolutely nothing to shore up the failures of the current failure in office, who is driving this country into ruination with inflation and incompetence in handling it. Democrats cannot get it through their heads that you cannot control inflation by printing more money to buy votes with.

    If you want to define Trump supporters as a cult, then you would just as much so, have to define Trump detractors as a cult. Both are just as lavish in their praise or their hate for the man. I personally like to compare the qualifications of the two contendors when looking at a President. One being a successful businessperson the other being nothing but a politician with no remarkable accomplishments for better than 4 decades. Unless of course you want to include..... well SOB they fired him! An easy choice! Then you have the Clintons with a multitude of skeletons, who committed suicide with a bullet to the back of their heads, in their closet! Another easy choice

    Trump is not President any longer.... get it?? Trump had his shortcomings, but he was head and shoulders over the current circus act when it comes to managing the economy and general wellbeing of our country.

    And that has nothing to do with your favorite juvenile chant of the "cult" and your support of Socialists.

  • “…driving this country into ruination with inflation…”

    Inflation has been rising since November 2020, largely due to the reopening of the economy – which led to greater consumer demand, plus supply chain constraints. It’s not by government action or inaction. As for simply “printing money,” one would think you’d be aware of the fact that it doesn’t work that way. Had that been possible I’m fairly certain that President Trump would have printed up a few trillion dollars and put them in his pocket.

    “…define Trump supporters as a cult…”

    Of course that’s what they are, in particular ones that swallow his lies about a “stolen” election. He is nothing more that a dishonest demagogue. The most recent example is 1/6 when he called for his cult members to attack the capital to try to stop a Constitutional process in the count of EC votes. Had he ordered them to drink “kool-aide” because their insurrection was unsuccessful, they possibly would have done that.

    Trying to define those opposed to him as a “cult” is another example of you trying to use false-equivalence as a means of “mudding the waters.” The definition of “cult” does not extend to those opposing the demagogic charlatan/shyster that is the “leader” of the Trump Cult.

    “…compare the qualifications of the two contenders…”

    You mean a “successful businessman” as in multiple bankruptcies, losing money while running a casino, destroying the lucrative Eastern Shuttle by mismanagement, or illegally altering the questionable value of assets to cheat. Other than a game show host and real estate agent there’s not much in the way of business acumen.

    President Biden applied his extensive political experience to land the bi-partisan infrastructure legislation that Trump failed at for four years.

    “…managing the economy and the general well-being of our country…”

    Really, you mean the almost total collapse of our economy because of his personal incompetence in handling the Covid pandemic. After inheriting a growing economy he was never able to improve it.

    His failure at managing the pandemic resulted in our country experiencing 20 to 25% of all cases and deaths with less than 5% of the worlds population

    A cult leader is exactly what he was and still is, wanting desperately to cling to power through lies, demagoguery and soapbox populism.

    All I ever stated on what the DNC Talking Point is regarding what they like to call the Big Lie, is that if a person states what they truly believe it is not a lie. They may be mistaken but not lying. I think Trump's ego really moves him to believe what he says in that regard, if or not you like it does not matter one iota with me.

    Further I am not the only person of that persuasion when it comes to a lie vs a belief. I checked the internet and here is what popped up

    A question on what is a lie.

    "Quora

    If a person is lying but they believe they are telling the truth, is it still considered lying?

    If a person is lying then they are lying.

    If a person tells a falsehood when they know the truth, it’s a lie.

    If a person tells a falsehood because they think it’s the true then I wouldn’t count that as lying.

    None of us are completely accurate all or most of the time. I think we need to take into account the knowledge of the person, their abilities and the circumstances before we accuse them of some moral fault. And we should be weary of everything people tell us because they don’t always have the complete story or know the truth."

    So Leftau, I am not the only person of that belief.

    And none of your repetitious BS has caused me to alter my belief in that. Now who can most accurately sort out if or not it is a lie, is the person making the statement. My personal feeling is Trump's ego is such that he cannot believe he could have lost.

    You may believe what you dam well want to because it doesn't amount to squat in my life anyway.

    Now back to something that does matter. I have better things to do.

    Oh, Lettau, once more you have failed to get me to commit to something you would like, just so you could start your fruitless digging at me some more.

    Tooodle do Uly

  • Mr.VanGennip,

    I had to burst out laughing right when you invented a "Trump hatred cult." The rest of the "gobbledygook" was equally humorous.

    Do you actually believe that Trump is unaware that he lost fairly and honestly? Of course he knows that. His process is to simply lie to gullible cult members because they believe him and among other things, they send him money.

    Recall that throughout 2020, Trump kept falsely claiming that the only way he could lose, would be by fraud.

    How irrational is that? The purpose was to prepare his gullible supporters for the big lie.

    The more denials you post, the more you look like a member of his target group. Nevertheless, I'd suggest that you actually recognize the big lie for the falsehood that it is, but were you to admit it, you'd have to accept all of his other failings.

    Don't worry, I can easily refrain from troubling you with more facts, as I remember your aversion to the truth.

    "I had to burst out laughing right when you invented a "Trump hatred cult." The rest of the "gobbledygook" was equally humorous."

    Well glad you got a laugh. You don't have a lot to laugh about with that embarrassment you Dims gave us for a President. Have you heard him, in his words, he is going to stop hurricanes? You should really be embarrassed with that bit of Democratic Wisdom.

    So far as your Trump Hatred Cult, it is no more ridiculous than you calling someone who supports Trump a Cult member. You were as enamored with your love and devotion for Obama as any Trump supporter is. You might want to look in your own closet for skeletons before you start your name calling. But hey, we know, if the DNC puts out a talking point you are dedicated to falling in lock step.

    "Do you actually believe that Trump is unaware that he lost fairly and honestly?"

    Leftau, unlike you, I do not claim to be able to read another's mind. There is one person that truly knows the answer to that question. Do I need to tell you who it is?

    "The more denials you post, the more you look like a member of his target group. Nevertheless, I'd suggest that you actually recognize the big lie for the falsehood that it is, but were you to admit it, you'd have to acce pt all of his other failings."

    Leftau, where are the denials posted by me?

    And as a piece of information for you, I know of nothing that I am required to do on your say so!

    Would you like to show where, and who appointed you my Superior, where I am supposed to submit to your instructions.

    I think I know what to expect next.

    YES Google I believe it is civil and truthful.

    Then Democratic candidate Joe Biden excoriated Donald Trump’s response to the disease in an unanswerable indictment of the sitting president. “220,000 Americans dead. If you hear nothing else I say tonight, hear this… Anyone who is responsible for that many deaths should not remain as president of the United States of America.”

    There you go again Little Man, stating as fact something you have no knowledge of.

    What I feel or think about Trump bad or good is my business and the fact that you cannot get me to "confess" one way or the other must really bother your ego from your personal attacks on me.

    I will say this much, every President presents a real and present danger to the country in the mistakes they can make but if you insist on comparing the last two, I am of the firm conviction that Joe Biden and the Leftist faction of the Democrat Party present by far our greatest threat with Socialism. If allowed to flourish it will be the greatest threat to our country since the Civil War. And one we may not overcome and remain a free society.

  • As usual, Mr. VanGennip, your confusion leaps off the screen.

    Of course I know that he failed to win his re-election bid. But describing it as him being "fired" is more than a bit appropriate, and ironic, in light of his game show where (as I believe) he delighted in firing people.

    Realizing that honesty is not one of your strong suits, I'll still ask, if President Obama had lost his re-election attempt, would you have claimed he was "fired?"

    I would have called it that.

    Leftau, since I have never used that ignorant term on a candidates having an election won or lost by him/her I see no reason to believe I would have treated the Obama election any differently. I did my civic duty in that case also, and it was left at that so far as win or loose goes.

    Since you brought Obama to the table, I will say this much, I believe he was a true POS and caused the division we face today.

    And your saying Obama was fired if he had lost. Sorry, but I fo not believe you for one minute!

    You're correct. The term is not used, but impeachment is and Trump was impeached twice and found guilty twice by bipartisan majorities of Senators. The numbers did not reach the total for removal, but the republicans voted for acquittal even while knowing he was guilty as charged.

    Well, looks as if Leftau has confessed he was wrong in his choice of words. The numbers did not reach the total for removal, but the republicans voted for acquittal even while knowing he was guilty as charged.

    Yes he was impeached twice on lies by people like Pelosi and Adam Schiff.

    So far as what the Republican Senators knew or did not know, are you mind reading again?

    The Democrats could not stand the fact that Trump defeated Hillary Clinton and started in on Trump even before he was inaugurated. Investigate, investigate and lie, lie, lie and impeach based on the lies. Had the Democrats spent their time doing what they were paid for what could have been done.

    And the little man speaks of obsenities, What happened by the Democrats during Trump's term is what was obscene.

    So Mr. VanGennip refuses to confirm or deny his Trump cult membership. However, he defends him as being a great or good "administrator," and claims it's OK if you "truly believe" a big lie.

    Response: Leftau I am not required to confirm or deny anything to you, which really scalds your sones doesn't it? I find that hillareous.

    The very idea of cult membership should be so abhorant that "sitting on the fence" is unlikely.

    Response: First and foremost the cult idea is nothing more than a Democrat talking point. There is no cult membership with Trump any more or less than there is with you and your man love for the Democrat Party. In any case I have never sworn blind leadership to any political party or ideal. Period!

    In Mr. VanGennip's case it seems that he " looks like" a cult member, "walks like" a cult member, and "talks like" a cult member, therefore it's likely he is a cult member.

    Response: In Leftau's case his presumptions prove nothing other than an obsession to make me respond to his childish accusations. Which he is incapable of making me do.

    And the easiest way to prove he's not a cult member, is to admit the big lie is exactly that.

    Response: I have never been accused of doing things your way or the easy way as you would like to term it. And since there is no requirement of any kind for me to respond to your inquisition, I will give you this much as a response.... Go take a flying fuct at a rolling donut!

    The corollary to this is simply that refusal to deny the big lie, strongly confirms belief in the big lie.

    REsponse: Leftau since I recognize no corollary, my refusal to not commit is only to say in so many words, stuff it, as I see no need or obligation to satisfy you.

    Further Leftau, you Democrats giving us this failure for a President, in what you surely cannot consider your very best candidate, shows what you think of America.

    But hey, if he can and does stop hurricanes with a vaccine, I will admit I could be wrong.

    “Trump complained. "We started building and we built almost 500 miles of wall, certain sections we couldn't get rights to and now we have rights. And had they, had we won the election, it would almost be—it would be completed now."

    Not sure where you come up with these absurd conclusions. Trump lost the popular vote and barely won the EC vote in a couple of key states by a handful of votes. If it makes you happy, feel free to call it a "shellacking" but that's just one more example of your disregard of facts.

    As I've pointed out numerous times, she lost and never started a insurrection over it. She would have done a much better job than Trump did, but that was along time ago and is irrelevant, even though you're still obsessing over it (for whatever strange reason.)

    A question on what is a lie.

    Quora

    If a person is lying but they believe they are telling the truth, is it still considered lying?

    If a person is lying then they are lying.

    If a person tells a falsehood when they know the truth, it’s a lie.

    If a person tells a falsehood because they think it’s the true then I wouldn’t count that as lying.

    None of us are completely accurate all or most of the time. I think we need to take into account the knowledge of the person, their abilities and the circumstances before we accuse them of some moral fault. And we should be weary of everything people tell us because they don’t always have the complete story or know the truth.

    Off Subject but more Lettau

    "I had to burst out laughing right when you invented a "Trump hatred cult." The rest of the "gobbledygook" was equally humorous."

    Well glad you got a laugh. You don't have a lot to laugh about with that embarrassment you Dims gave us for a President. Have you heard him, in his words, he is going to stop hurricanes? You should really be embarrassed with that bit of Democratic Wisdom.

    So far as your Trump Hatred Cult, it is no more ridiculous than you calling someone who supports Trump a Cult member. You were as enamored with your love and devotion for Obama as any Trump supporter is. You might want to look in your own closet for skeletons before you start your name calling. But hey, we know, if the DNC puts out a talking point you are dedicated to falling in lock step.

    "Do you actually believe that Trump is unaware that he lost fairly and honestly?"

    Leftau, unlike you, I do not claim to be able to read another's mind. There is one person that truly knows the answer to that question. Do I need to tell you who it is?

    "The more denials you post, the more you look like a member of his target group. Nevertheless, I'd suggest that you actually recognize the big lie for the falsehood that it is, but were you to admit it, you'd have to acce pt all of his other failings."

    Leftau, where are the denials posted by me?

    And as a piece of information for you, I know of nothing that I am required to do on your say so!

    Would you like to show where, and who appointed you my Superior, where I am supposed to submit to your instructions.

    -- Posted by Rick Lettau on Sun, Dec 26, 2021, at 11:21 AM

    -- Posted by Rick Lettau on Sun, Dec 26, 2021, at 11:27 AM
  • Here's an example of one of Senator Cramer's 12 fables....

    One of them referred to payments in the $450,000 range to illegals, which the Senator tries to claim are arbitrary "payments" without cause.

    In fact, the amount is a low estimate of what the US government may have to pay to settle class action lawsuits generated by Trump's "zero tolerance" policies that among other things are by parents whose children were "abducted," separated and kept by the Trump administration.

    That pretty clearly makes it just one of hundreds of Trump blunders, yet the Senator tries to blame President Biden.

    Leftau we all know the cause and that is the illegal entry into our country. Once that happens we have a right to take action. I have been into a good number of foreign countries, only which happened after I presented a valid passport and answered properly administered questions of me. I was not welcome to run in willy nilly and do as I **** well pleased. And I was required to show my passport once again to return to my own country.

    Why do you support the idea of foreign immigrants just running into our country and then be supported off taxpayer funds?

    I have stated before, I have a European background relative who worked years to finally win the Visa Lottery and get a Permanent Visa to live in this country. And that after being required to prove she was able to financially care for herself and to get a Social Security Card and pay taxes.

    While those people trying to come in are trying to improve their lives, why do we have to treat them with kid gloves and reward them for their illegal actions. Why cannot they wait their turn like a European immigrant would.

    And why does our Vice President not do the job she was assigned and work on bettering their lot where they come from. Ask her and she sounds like a hyena. You should be real proud as a Leftist Democrat (not) of the team you foisted off on us as leaders of the free world. What a disaster!

  • Just a reminder, Mr. VanGennip, Trump intentionally separated children from their parents, which is why the US Government is being sued. President Obama did nothing so "illegal" or immoral.

    Per Wikipedia...

    "The United States family separation policy under the Trump administration was presented to the public as a "zero tolerance" approach intended to deter illegal immigration and to encourage tougher legislation. It was officially adopted across the entire US–Mexico border from April 2018 until June 2018. Under the policy, federal authorities separated children and infants from parents or guardians with whom they had entered the US. The adults were prosecuted and held in federal jails or deported, and the children were placed under the supervision of the US Department of Health and Human Services.

    A 2021 review done by the Biden administration found that more than 1,400 parents were ultimately deported without their children. In January 2020 the SPLC reported that the official government number of children separated from their parents or guardians under the policy was 4,368.

  • "If the virus is totally at the control of the President as you seem to think it is, where is your blame for Biden?"

    The control the President has is based in being honest with Americans, particularly with respect to following medical science, not partisan political rants.

    As for Trump, dishonesty is an ingrained trait. For example...

    Jan 22 -- “We have it pretty much under control. It’s one person coming from China.”

    ..through..

    Mar 10 -- “It will go away. Just stay calm. It will go away.”

    Mar 13 -- National Emergency Declaration.

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    Now we’ve over 800,000 deaths and over 50 million cases. How many could have been avoided if Trump had acted responsibly and vaccination refusal did not become a political cause?

    -- Posted by Rick Lettau on Fri, Dec 10, 2021, at 2:18 PM

    That was Trump through 2020.

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    "Biden claimed he would stop it."

    Actually, he claimed that the vaccine would stop it. And throughout most of 2021, vaccines were available to all Americans. Everyone had access to free shots.

    The fact that there were enough people that refused the shots (for no rational reason) allowed Covid to continue to spread and to mutate.

    President Biden went as far as to push vaccine mandates to stop the pandemic, which was a legal and necessary public health approach. Republicans, for some inexplicable explanation seemed to see this as a threat to their power, and placed their needs above that of all Americans.

    Biden succeeded in "stopping" the pandemic for vaccinated people. The disease is now a pandemic of the "un-vaccinated" and could continue until most come to their senses or are "attrited."

    Even now the disease and death rates appear to be 3 to 6 times higher in "red" states than in "blue" states. Trump himself has now pushed vaccination and booster shots.

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    So yes, Trump should accept the blame for his lies, actions and failures. President Biden's action on the other hand, was to be honest with America and explain how vaccination will stop the pandemic. Those refusing vaccines have only themselves to blame.

You forget Biden is NOT God Almighty nor is his office given the authority to order Americans around. BIDEN IS NOT King, Biden is NOT Totalirarian Ruler. Biden is merely the President with limited powers as directed by our Constitution.

    Same is true for Trump and the other 40 some who came before them.

    I don't pretend to know what is in people's minds who are dedicated to not being vaccinated.

    There is no one who hates shots worse than I do, but I have had mine including the Booster.

  • Rick S.,

    "Regarding those illegal vaccine Mandates..."

    I checked again in the Constitution, and it still says "promote the general welfare" but nowhere did I find a clause prohibiting the government for taking necessary public health measure when faced with a worldwide pandemic.

    In particular, the current "mandate" gives at least 4 legal alternatives to workers. They can resign, or work from home when possible, or participate in a simple testing regime, or they take a free, safe vaccine.

    Promoting and assuring public health does not violate the Constitution. It would be a slightly different issue if vaccine refusal only affected the individual himself. In this case the refusal contributes to further spread and of the pandemic and allows for more viral mutations.

    A related concern is just why are the republicans so anxious for the pandemic to continue?

    -- Posted by Rick Lettau on Mon, Dec 27, 2021, at 8:23 PM
  • Mr. VanGennip,

    You still seem to be overly confused with reference to the handling of the pandemic by Presidents Trump and Biden.

    During the critical first stage of the pandemic in spring of 2020, Trump ignored the severity of the threat, continually lied about how the disease would “just go away,” and ridiculed the need for masks and other mediation methods. What he should have been doing was insisting on widespread masking, social distancing, contact tracing and intensive testing. As a result of his incompetence, America experienced from 20 to 25% of the world’s cases and deaths while only representing about 4.5% of the world’s population. And this happened while we had the best medical facilities and science in the world. Instead of leading in the fight against Covid 19 Trump “surrendered,” which is why he should have resigned and was eventually “fired.”

    President Biden has no reason to "resign" as he did everything in his power to get as many Americans vaccinated as quickly as possible. The problem now is that we're faced with a pandemic of the unvaccinated.

    What a crock of BS. Your many times repeated lies do not make it true. We have had so many conflicting directions on what to do by Fauci that nobody is clear on it.

    In Trump's defense, nobody knew what was really coming. Biden has had advance notice and made the BS statement that he would stop it but he has not. And the vaccine is not 100% either. People having had the shots are getting it still. Biden made the statement if a President had that many deaths that they should resign. He has had more, so why isn't he resigning. Biden has not stopped the disease with the vaccinated, Get it. And Biden set no conditions on his statement that he would stop it, but he has not, even in the vaccinated which was a program happening before he came to office by the way. Even with the going on two years' experience we have had; Biden has not stopped it. By his own standards set down for Trump, Biden should resign. Actually, with his incompetent behavior he should resign as a matter of inability to do his job.

    And plain and simple and in the face of your denials. Biden's mandates are illegal in a free society like ours. He does not have the authority to make those kinds of demands on a free society. We are a country of laws not one man commands.

    No I am not. Even got a booster and tested for antibodies. Twice. I wear an N95 when appropriate. That means not in my truck alone like one can identify a Bidencrat without a bumper sticker.

    Satisfied? BTW-never had any sort of seasonal flu shot in my life. Never had the flu either. Had a couple of bad winter colds but tested negative for flu.

    If this is question and answer day,who’s side are you on,Manchin or Biden? You seem to have skipped over the current events to reminisce about Trump.

    Leftau, it will be a cold day in hell before I need any of your misguided learning or help.

    I already have a reasonable knowledge of our Constitution and how our Country works and doubt that anyone who thinks just because a President is a Democrat he is entitled to Totalitarian Rule, could teach anyone.

    You might want to dwell on how much trouble this mentally deficient President has placed our country in with his "phone and his pen". Starting with the Southern Border and now trying to place himself in the position of absolute Ruler with his mandates.

    Think about this Leftau... are you a Democrat first or an American first?

  • Mr. Braswell,

    I believe that Manchin is doing the right thing in holding up the entire package, but President Biden is right in pushing for selected issues, such as the 2 years of preschool.

    They could have worked out a mutually acceptable "phase 1" of the plan.

    Shut down the new construction of the Keystone pipeline while approving the new construction of the Russian/Europe pipeline....America Last Russia First!

    Open borders that are letting unvaccinated covid Illegals & terrorists into the USA,

    Pork spending by the trillions just to buy votes from the freeloaders,

    A disastrous Afghan withdrawal that still has over 500 American citizens in a terrorist country (wonder how they spent Christmas),

    More covid deaths under Biden with 2 vaccines available than Trump with only 2 vaccines on 12/15/20 - Turnip Brain Biden resign like you told Trump,

    Illegal vaccine mandates that as of yesterday Biden gave up and kicked the can to the States (trying to keep that approval rating from going down even further),

    Our enemies China and Russia have no fear from the USA - not with our weak president and his woke military leaders who are more concerned with CRT than the defense of the USA - yep kick those good troops out for refusing the vaccines - good grief I can hear the Russians and Chinese laughing at Turnip Brain Biden.

    Putin and Xi are probably chanting - Let's Go Brandon! LOL.

    There's no such thing as "nationwide" mandating, although we're it the case, we'd be back to normal now.

    Had we followed President Biden's lead for full vaccination back last spring and reached 80 to 90% vaccinated, we'd be out of the "covid-19 woods" or at least at t he edge.

  • Mr. VanGennip,

    Here’s the final lesson in today’s effort to “draw you a picture.”

    Mr. Azimov pointed out the existence of a cult of ignorance nurtured by a “strain of anti-intellectualism.” The source is invariable instances were individuals or groups ignore, or are blissfully unaware of the truth and/or facts.

    Here are a couple of examples and you should be able to figure out where you fit…

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    The 2020 Presidential elections were fair and honest, as attested to and verified by local, state and federal election officials and judges. Trump himself admitted he lost. A large number of his administration officials and republican leaders (Barr, McConnell, Cheney, Romney, etc) openly say he lost and Biden won fairly. An even greater number of republicans know that’s true but are afraid to say so out loud. About 75% of the US population and the rest of the world know Biden won.

    Yet there are people in the US that refuse to accept this fact, and try to make excuses for Trump’s big lie. (as in “if he truly believes it.”) These are people that Azimov lumps into the cult that believes their “…ignorance is just as good as your (i.e. the rest of the nation) knowledge.”

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    An example provided yesterday…

    During the critical first stage of the pandemic in spring of 2020, Trump ignored the severity of the threat, continually lied about how the disease would “just go away,” and ridiculed the need for masks and other mediation methods. What he should have been doing was insisting on widespread masking, social distancing, contact tracing and intensive testing. As a result of his incompetence, America experienced from 20 to 25% of the world’s cases and deaths while only representing about 4.5% of the world’s population. And this happened while we had the best medical facilities and science in the world. Instead of leading in the fight against Covid 19 Trump “surrendered,” which is why he should have resigned and was eventually “fired.”

    President Biden has no reason to "resign" as he did everything in his power to get as many Americans vaccinated as quickly as possible. The problem now is that we're faced with a pandemic of the unvaccinated.

    The bottom line is very simple, Trump’s lack of action had a negative impact on the health and safety of Americans, whereas Biden’s actions had a positive impact.

    Yet there are people in the US that refuse to accept this fact and ignore it, or try to falsely equate the actions of both presidents. These are also part of the cult that Azimov defined.

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    Perhaps this is clear enough for you...

    Leftau I have read your little litany of Democratic talking points a good number of times now but that doesn't make them any more true than the first time you repeated them.

    And this, that you keep repeating "(as in “if he truly believes it.”)

    Leftau, I only stated what I and the rest of people with learning understand. You however, have a skull too thick to penetrate.

    I stated my reasoning , you can accept it or remain short on your learning, I could care less. Knowing Trump's ego, I can easily believe he thought it was impossible for him to lose. I showed you where others believe as I do when it comes to labeling a lie

    You of all people should understand with the amount of lies you spread.

    Leftau I will tell you once, there is nothing you have to teach me. A lot smarter men than you have tried selling me a line of BS that I was wise enough not to buy into. So don't delude yourself into thinking that you are smart enough to sell your BS to me . If I need someone to help me it will be someone with more than a Certicate of Completion. In other words when it comes to what really matters I don't feel outranked by you little man.

  • Mr. VanGennip,

    It’s always rather enlightening to take notice of your struggles in any response. One sure sign of this is when you invariably close with “little man,” which seems to be your signature, "cute" manner of trying to assert your “superiority.” It's never worked.

    Your “reasoning” concerning Trump’s big lie is irrelevant to me. How you decide to rationalize anything is totally your business. The point remains that President Biden won fairly and honestly and the vast majority of the Americans know that.

    There is also a group that refuses to accept this and is content to ignore the truth and the facts. Azimov would likely define this “group” as a “cult of ignorance” and he is correct.

    Whether or not you see yourself as a part of this group is your call. It doesn’t bother me one way or the other.

    Only about half of republicans (the -MAGA cult) believes the Trump won.

    The country is about a third republican, a third democratic and a third independent.

    Therefore only less than 20% of Americans cling to the concept of a non-existent Trump victory.

    There's close to zero evidence that anyone in the rest of the world believes Trump won.

    That makes the 75% number a safe bet.

  • One VanGennip fabrication…

    “Trump made us energy independent and Biden reversed it.”

    Not true.

    “The Energy Information Administration (EIA) tabulated U.S. energy consumption in 2019 and 2020, and determined that for both full years, counting all energy sources, we were energy independent. Even though U.S. energy production declined by 5% in 2020, energy consumption also declined by 3% as the pandemic impacted the economy. So, our energy independence was shrinking as the pandemic unfolded.

    As I noted above, the EIA wrote:

    “Annual crude oil production generally decreased between 1970 and 2008. In 2009, the trend reversed and production began to rise, and in 2019, U.S. crude oil production reached a record high of 12.25 million barrels per day. More cost-effective drilling and production technologies helped to drive the production increases, especially in Texas and North Dakota. U.S. crude oil production declined to about 11.31 million barrels per day in 2020. A large drop in U.S. petroleum demand in March and April 2020 as a result of the response to the Covid-19 pandemic led to a decrease in U.S. oil production.”

    So, in 2009 we began the march to energy independence. Those wishing to credit President Trump for this need to take another look at that net imports graphic to grasp the full picture.

    But we don’t actually know if, once the full year of 2021 has been accounted for, we lost our energy independence for the year. If it turns out that we did, the single largest factor in that will be that oil and natural gas production have yet to return back to pre-Covid-19 levels. But demand has recovered, and therein lies the reason.

    Is The U.S. Energy Independent? (forbes.com)

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    One more VanGennip fabrication…

    “Trump s we cured the Southern Border. Biden reversed it.”

    Also not true. Nothing was “cured.”

    Trump’s lack of success on crucial promises were not for a lack of trying.

    Promise to cancel all funding of sanctuary cities? Broken.

    Trump’s attempt was limited to Justice Department funds, and even those efforts were foiled by courts, which largely sided with cities, counties and states that sued the administration. The lawsuits argued that a Trump executive order and conditions for a Justice Department grant violated principles on separation of powers and a doctrine that says states can't be forced to carry out federal duties.

    Promise to triple ICE enforcement? Broken.

    Trump wanted funds to increase the number of deportation agents, but he did not get much from Congress. His administration also faced challenges in recruiting and hiring. A U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement official in 2018 reported not having a sufficient pool of candidates to fill existing vacancies, much less the 10,000 positions Trump requested in an executive order.

    Promise to build a border wall and make Mexico pay for it? Broken.

    Mexico didn’t pay at all. Using U.S. taxpayers’ money, Trump has replaced about 200 miles of dilapidated barriers with upgraded fences. Before Trump was president, the nearly 2,000-mile southwest border had 654 miles of primary barriers. As of June, Trump had increased that by 3 miles, to 657.

    PolitiFact | Donald Trump’s immigration promises: failures and achievements

    Furthermore:

    At the Republican National Convention, Donald Trump and his supporters have given the impression that Trump administration policy, while tough on illegal immigration, has been welcoming to legal immigrants, people trying to become American citizens and refugees fleeing government persecution. Below is a review of Trump administration policies on legal immigration from 2017 to the present.

    Legal Immigration Cut in Half, Most Categories Blocked: By 2021, Donald Trump will have reduced legal immigration by 49% since becoming president – without any change in U.S. immigration law, according to a National Foundation for American Policy analysis. An April presidential proclamation blocked the entry of legal immigrants to the United States in almost all categories.

    Reducing legal immigration most harms refugees, employers and Americans who want to live with their spouses, parents or children, but it also affects the country’s future labor force and economic growth: “Average annual labor force growth, a key component of the nation’s economic growth, will be approximately 59% lower as a result of the administration’s immigration policies, if the policies continue,” according to the National Foundation for American Policy.

  • Just a reminder from last May, of what the problem is....

    https://www.cnn.com/2021/05/19/politics/donald-trump-big-lie-explainer/index.htm...

    (CNN)Former President Donald Trump has spent months spreading lies about the 2020 election, which he himself is now calling "THE BIG LIE" as he continues to claim that a massive conspiracy robbed him of a second term.

    The result is that many Republicans now question the election results -- and the lie has taken on a life of its own.

    In Washington, congressional Republicans who recently ousted Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney from the party's leadership over her decision to call Trump out for his lies mostly united Wednesday against a review of the January 6 Capitol insurrection those lies helped incite.

    Trump's allies in Arizona are undertaking a sketchy, circus-like review of 2020 ballots in Maricopa County, even though local officials -- themselves Republicans -- are openly objecting to the process, which comes months after the state's election was certified by its Republican governor. (Trump allies are now pushing for a similar review in Georgia, where Republican officials also certified President Joe Biden's victory.)

    In key states around the country, more restrictive election laws are being enacted, ostensibly to guard against fraud that did not happen.

  • Then there's this, courtesy of our former President....

  • More ramifications of the big lie...

    Column: Do Trump's Jan. 6 sins of omission and commission make him criminally liable?

    Rep. Bennie Thompson, the Democratic chair of the House Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol attack, has made it clear that the panel is focused intently on former President Trump’s three-plus hours of scandalous silence as the insurrection raged.

    Commentators have suggested that as odious as Trump’s silence may have been, it does little to ground a criminal case because criminal law punishes people for action rather than inaction.

    But that principle has important exceptions that apply precisely to Jan. 6 and Trump. Beyond that, as more evidence is revealed, it’s increasingly obvious that the former president did act — by encouraging the disruption of the election certification. All in all, a criminal referral to the Department of Justice is a real possibility (whether Atty. Gen. Merrick Garland pursues it is another matter).

    Here’s how the action-inaction distinction operates: Criminal liability generally requires the combination of intent and action, which is why omitting to act typically doesn’t land you in jail. But when a defendant has a legal duty to act and does not, the principle gives ground.

    Trump gave himself a multi-million dollar tax break. He allowed Iran to get closer to a bomb. He surrendered unilaterally to the Taliban. He made Kim Jong Un famous in the third world. Under his administration we had 20 to 25% of Covid-19 cases and deaths leading the world.

    "How is that Trump failed to get a bipartisan infrastructure program passed through Congress and Biden got it done in less than a year."

    Leftau, you have brought this up numerous times as if it were the lifeblood of this country. I do not remember hearing all of the fuss about it during Trump's term in office. Is it that he did not consider it to be of prime importance to pass a debt increasing, pork laden, vote buying bill.

    The man cannot put a sentence together and has done more harm than good. The biggest mistake Biden made was to cancel Trump's arrangements that were keeping the illegals out of the country via the Southern Border. The Democrats could not stand that Trump success so they turned it into a Biden failure. I can do without the pork and vote buying Biden has done, just don't bring any more illegals here to support. Not 15 minutes ago I heard about more flights loaded with illegals being dropped off for us to support. And landing them at night, what is the purpose of the secrecy. Then there was the stying to shut down oil in this court to make us more dependent. Biden's mistakes continue to add up.

    And you surely remember that Trump was trying to get our country's economy back on track after Obama's failure in that department, where we had the slowest recovery from a recession since the Great Depression.

    So no Leftau, you have nothing to toot your horn about when it comes to Biden's screwups over the past nearly 12 months. And he has not stopped the virus as promised, even though he was handed a couple of vaccines to work with.

    Rail on Leftau, but Biden was a mistake.Clear, plain and simple. The man is sick, get him out of there. He is an embarrassment in front of the world.

    Leftau for a while I thought you might get over your hatred for Trump for keeping Broom Hilda from being President, because it was her turn.

    But I have changed my mind. I believe you will go to your grave with hatred in your heart for Donald Trump. It must be a terrible feeling to know that no matter what you say, or do it isn't going to change one single thing that has happened.

    You cannot change it and you cannot comfortably live with it. I pity you.

  • As usual you've got it totally wrong. My position all along has only been that Trump is a pitiful excuse for an American.

    It's surprising that someone as astute as yourself has not recognized that he's always been for "Trump first."

    There's no question that he's been bad for America, but as I've said numerous times, it's not an issue of hatred on my part. You can save your "concern."

    Now another matter Leftau. You have spouted off a number of times about Trump failing to pass something while Biden succeeded. Then you take on the entire Republican Party with something childish like this.... "Remember how republicans and decency represent a contradiction in terms."

    Leftau did it occurr to you the Republicans had to help Biden to pass anything. Whereas the Democrats in their hatred for Trump, because he beat Hillary Clinton, fought him at every turn for four long years.

    And America suffered.

    Now, if you want to ponder decency, look at the whole picture.

    You might also like to look at yourself and think about decency for a change.

    So far as what you are going to see again momentarily, bear this in mind. I am an American, equal to any other. And if it is indecent to quote our President. Then he was indecent. Deny that Lefty!

    To quote Joe Biden, President of the United States of America....

    That's clearly no longer the case. Their descent possible began with losing to Obama, but was most obvious with their "love affair" with Trump.

    Now, for probably the first time in recent political history, they've translated an innocuous phrase into a profanity to enable its public use.

    Who are those cultist?

    "Devoted far-right followers of former President Donald Trump are finally turning on him — and all it took was a series of enthusiastic public statements endorsing COVID-19 vaccines.

    It started on Sunday when Trump revealed during a rally with longtime conservative pundit Bill O'Reilly that he had received a booster shot, a fact that attendees greeted with boos.

    "Don't, don't, don't," Trump responded after hearing the boos. "That's alright, it's a very tiny group up there," he added, pointing to a section of the crowd.

    He doubled down on his endorsement of vaccines Wednesday during an interview with online commentator Candace Owens, saying definitively, "the vaccine worked."

  • “…are you also condemning Biden for using those exact same words…”

    Think about it for a minute, Mr. VanGennip, does your question strike you as more than a bit absurd and preposterous.

    Joe Biden has always been considerate, gracious and empathetic. His reaction to this odd, ambiguous comment is fairly predictable.

    Consider that this was a child’s Christmas phone call which was live streamed nation wide, and the subject was Santa “tracking” by NORAD. What type of perverted (Schmeck or)"schmuck” would end their children's call with profanity. Calling himself a “free thinking American and a follower of Jesus Christ.” Does he really believe that’s what Jesus would say

    It’s not clear whether President Biden was aware of what the “Schnuck’s” comment meant (or if he cared), but it had been immediately preceded by the First Lady saying, “Well have a Merry Christmas. Have a wonderful Christmas.”

    Then the “pervert” who was surrounded by his 11 year old son, and two younger daughters, said, “Merry Christmas and Let’s Go Brandon!” (Note that it has not been revealed when the “Schmuck” explained to his children exactly what his words meant.)

    When the President responded, “Let’s Go Brandon, I agree” it was purely because of his supportive nature and instinctive inclination to be agreeable. In my opinion it is no different than if someone were to have ended saying “Go Cards!” and he repeated “Go Cards” even if he were a lifelong Cubs fan.

    The idea that someone can be that indecent, in that (or any) situation is itself appallingly alarming.

    What’s even more incredible is that some want to claim that this profanity is acceptable now that President Biden unknowingly and innocently repeated the same phrase.

    But then again, the republican/Trumpist/conservative penchant for indecency is hard to tamp down. Simple truth and honesty may not immediately prevail, but will eventually.

    That does not mean I can't recognize one, such as the Trump driven mob of republican/Trumpist/conservatives that attacked the US Capital police, injuring 100's and causing the deaths of some.

    One more example of republican indecency.

That was all in Turnip's first year - can't wait to see what Let's Go Brandon will screw up in 2022. God Help/Save the USA from this Senile Demented Administration!

  • The legal BLM demonstrations were not "mob actions."

    When peaceful demonstrations were subverted by criminals engaged in looting, burning or destruction of property, those lawbreakers became a "mob" and those participants should fully prosecuted. Why would anyone question that?

    As bad as those criminals were, they never intended to overturn a legal election, attack the US Capital, ransack Congressional facilities and offices, and call for hanging our Vice-President.

    Seems that only republicans exhibit that lack of decency.

    Leftau, there was illegal action (mob action) at BLM marches and rallies as well as with Antifa to the extent they occupied a city and raided a Federal Building if I remember correctly.

    In any case the actions of a relative few as numbers go does not indict an entire group as you have done concerning the January 6th break in by a number of people and you continuing babbling about a group and decency.

    Further, this alone would finger you as a Democratic Lackey... "Seems that only republicans exhibit that lack of decency." If you can take an individual act and indict a group or an entire organization, then it would be just as fair for me to say that the Democratic Party promotes illegal voting because over 50 years ago a Democrat acquaintance tried to get me to vote in a Bollinger County election well after I had moved from the area and he was aware of it. Happened on the sidewalk in what was Lutesvile at the time. Two can play your childish game Leftau.

  • "...the actions of a relative few as numbers go does not indict an entire group as you have done concerning the January 6th break..."

    What do you consider a "relative few?" As of now about 727 individuals have been implicated by name.

    Furthermore, on January 6th last year, the Capital was closed to visitors, temporary crowd control barriers were is place, and the Capital Police prohibited entry.

    Therefore every person that broke through those lines was guilty of criminal trespass, and the high estimates of numbers range from 5 to 8 thousand.

    How do you justify even one person assaulting our Capital screaming "hang Mike Pence?"

    Leftaul nobody I know justifies the breaking into the capitol. By your own numbers it was less than one in 10 accused. How many of those are not guilty?

    Eventually we will know.

    What justified the police locking down the city to U S citizens before anything happened?

    For someone who makes the statement he was never a Democrat , you talk like one, you act like one and you smell like one in print. It is my opinion, you are one.

    So you want to make this look as bad as you can.

    Definitely mistakes were made in that gathering.

  • Looks like the original Brandon can’t catch a break. The poor guy was enjoying his first NASCAR win with the now famous post race interview by Kelli Stavast when the crowd started the chant that everyone including an obviously embarrassed Brandon Brown. By everyone I include Ms Stavast who inadvertently threw Brown under the bus and to the wolves. Brown tried to downplay the whole thing with comments like “for you Brandon’s out there ‘Let’s go us’ to no avail. He started losing sponsors which to a NASCAR team is 75-80% of their overhead just to put a car on the track. He finally has a sponsor,or so he thought,when LGBcoin agreed to do it. Or so he thought. Seems NASCAR originally okay’s the deal but has backed out wanting more time for the “higher ups” to study it. Apparently that “LGB” may be too political and NASCAR doesn’t want to get into political sponsorships. That wasn’t a problem after Bubba Wallace didn’t know what a garage door pull was and after 45 FBI investigators decided he didn’t either NASCAR let BLM be put on the Wallace car.

    Willing to bet if that “LGB” logo had “TQ” included there wouldn’t be an issue. So last I hear the original Brandon is waiting on those “higher ups” to get some ‘nads or still looking for a sponsor. All because the Ms Stavast tried to cover up the chant.

    A thought for what it is worth. Americans have the right of peaceful Assembly. Had they not tried to shut our Capitol down prior to people from all over the country, is it possible it would have remained peaceful.

    America was founded on an insurrection, anyone ever heard of the Boston Tea Party?

    I think it is fairly obvious, if it was a gathering of Democrats the Big Mouth from Scopus would be strangely silent.

    I didn't agree with it and I wasn't there, but it is time to let lawbreakers be given their day in court and move on. If we let it fester and continue to divide, what have we to gain?

    I'll let you off easy and just call your assumptions an error in judgement.

    But first Leftau, do you really believe that Biden was the best candidate the Democrats had to offer in the 2020 election? A man that had never had a real job where he accomplished anything.

    PS: leftau do you still profess to have never been a Democrat?

    I'm more worried about the inflation tax of 6.8% that according to the Fed will be with All of us during 2022 and will likely only go up.

    I'm more worried about the still open Southern Border that is still allowing thousands of Illegals every day coming in and becoming Wards of the present and future American taxpayers footing the bills.

    I'm more worried about the 500 plus American citizens still stranded in a terrorist country fending for themselves.

    I'm more worried about the trillions of dollars (that the USA does have) in the Democratic give away programs that causes the Feds to have to print more money that only adds to the inflation.

    I'm more worried about this weak senile Demented Administration and our Woke military leaders who only telegraphs to our enemies the prospects of them taking advantage of the USA.

    Remember that Mr. Schaefer has a highly fleeting to non-existent relationship with the facts and the truth. He’s been repeating the same fantasy since August.

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    Actually….

    “WASHINGTON, Dec 13 (Reuters) - The United States has helped over 900 American citizens and lawful permanent residents to leave Afghanistan and relocate to the United States since Aug. 31, after the chaotic end to the American war there, the U.S. State Department said on Monday.

    “The United States has directly assisted 479 American citizens and 450 lawful permanent residents, in addition to their immediate families, depart Afghanistan and relocate to the United States since the end of August, the State Department said in a statement.

    “The agency is in touch with fewer than a dozen U.S. citizens who want to leave the country, are prepared to depart and have the necessary travel documents, according to the statement.

    "There is no deadline for this work," the department said.”

    Leftau, I have voted for Democrats and Republicans as I see hit. I have gone so far as co-sponsor a fund raiser for a Democratic Governor candidate because I believed in him. Unfortunately he didn't make it. I have supported with yard signs a local Democrat because I personally knew him and his Conservative views.

    And on the other hand I have voted against candidates unfit for the office they sought. Precisely that would be Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden and I would do it again. I have never been all things Trump as I stated before, but he was the only candidate with a snow ball in hell's chance of beating the opposition. Won one and lost one in the process.

    All said and done, I am a Conservative, proud of it and will remain so.

    And further, I can support any candidate who truly opposes Socialism/Communism which is being pushed by The Leftist Democrats in this country.

    Leftau, you can try to hang your inventrd tags on me such as Trumpist but they won't stick because they don't fit.

    The individual who became president based on lies in the media and the FBI is now sitting at approval ratings lower than Trump. The worse approval rating for a president in modern history.

    Your problem Lettau isn't me or any republican. Your problem is you voted for a serial lyar who hasn't accomplished a single significant thing in his 47 years before becoming president. He was a joke in Congress and is an even bigger joke today as a weak, demented president. Even democrats and the biased media are now hammering his disastrous first year - worst in US history.

  • Mr. VanGennip,

    “…facts are that America did quite well during Trump’s term.”

    Seriously? Recall that during his tenure, we suffered about 20 to 25% of the worlds Covid 19 cases and deaths with a little more than 4.5% of the world’s population. Had he been able to competently manage the pandemic this would not have been the case. He totally ignored essential mitigation efforts including masking, social distancing, contact tracing and testing, and failed just by telling the country “it will just go away.” About 200,000 to 300,000 lives might have been spared had he done his job.

    Then he inherited a growing economy (clearly not “a mess”) and did not improve it. In fact it fell to about a negative 5%. Consider all the jobs lost by his incompetence. This is how bad it was….

    “However, the Obama administration added more jobs to the economy, comparing similar time-frames.

    Under Trump, in the three years prior to the pandemic, there were an additional 6.4 million jobs. In the last three years under Obama, seven million jobs were added.

    As in many parts of the world, coronavirus lockdown measures very quickly led to soaring levels of unemployment in the US.

    The rate jumped to 14.7% in April, the highest level since the Great Depression of the 1930s.

    The US Labor Department says more than 20 million people lost their jobs, eliminating a decade of employment gains in a single month.

    Since the peak in April, unemployment has fallen back significantly to 7.9% in September.”

    To fill you in on what you missed over the past 12 months….

    Even before his inauguration, President Biden worked tirelessly on plans for the distribution of the Covid 19 vaccines, to assure the were quickly and equitable being delivered nationwide. No one else was stepping up to this task.

    Next he obtained Congressional approval on an American Rescue Plan to facilitate the US’s recovery from the devastating economic health and economic effects of the pandemic.

    Got the US Innovation and Competition Act of 2021 passed as bipartisan legislation for basic and advanced technology research, aimed among other goals to counter China ascendancy world wide.

    He resumed the climate change “battle” by rejoining the Paris accords, which lent immediate support to US industries which had not stopped their actions.

    Obtained approval of 40 judicial nominees.

    Took steps to reunite migrant families.

    Completed US withdrawal from Afghanistan. In spite of the chaotic first days about 120,000 Americans and Afghani allies were successfully evacuated.

    Jobs were brought back and unemployment dropped and wages increased.

    The Infrastructure Bill was passed with bipartisan support from Congress.

    …and those are just the major accomplishments…

    You’re welcome.

    "“However, the Obama administration added more jobs to the economy, comparing similar time-frames."

    Leftau you have been reminded those were not new jobs, but jobs brought back as the economy recovered from one of it's recessions. Further, the recovery your wonder boy presided over was the slowest since the great depression. You seem to have poor retention, so I expect you will have to be re-educated in the future.

    There is a difference between recovery and actual growth. The rest of your litany of BS is more of the same.

    Leftau, what you call mismanagement was a crisis worldwide not experienced here in over a hundred years. Joe Biden was going to stop it he promised if elected.... what happened? Let me tell you, he did not! Is that Trump's fault as well?

    Joe Biden said a President with as many deaths as occurred up to and including campaign time, should resign. More have occurred since making this statement either a lie, or he should resign. Of course you will make that Trump's fault as well.

    You blow and blow about Biden's distributing the vaccines. I would remind you that those Vaccines were brought to market before Biden in record time because of Trump's program and they were being distributed before Biden took office and had any authority over their distribution. As a matter of fact I believe you will remember BIDEN received the shot prior to becoming President. He should be saying, Thank you, Mr. TRUMP.

  • Mr. VanGennip,

    “…a crisis worldwide not experienced in over a hundred years.”

    Exactly, but the mismanagement comes into play when, in 2020, the USA experiences 20 to 25% of the worlds cases and deaths with just over 4.2% of the world’s population. With one of the world’s best medical and science communities, based on population, we should have had only about 100,000 deaths in 2020 rather than almost 400,000. That was due to our President’s failure to implement nationwide mitigation methods.

    As for vaccines, Corona Virus vaccines were being researched, developed and produced since the 2000’s by the United States Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases. The most significant contribution by the Trump administration was staying out of the way,

    In 2021, with vaccines available, there was promise of a major reduction in cases and fatalities. The Biden administration made vaccines available for free to all Americans. Sadly, in 2021 the disease became a “pandemic of the unvaccinated” and about 90% of all deaths and hospitalizations struck those who refused the vaccine. This was during a period when President Biden urged all Americans to mask up and get vaccinated, even trying to set “mandates” for people’s own good.

    What else happened is that red state governors went as far as to work against the health and safety of their own populations. More ironic is that the former President finally got on the vaccination “bandwagon” as someone showed him that large numbers of Covid victims were old white people in republican states, i.e. his “base.”

    You need to pay more attention to facts.

Open southern border that has allowed thousands and thousands covid infected Illegals into the USA not to mention possible terrorists. Failed Afghan withdrawal which led to hundreds of stranded American citizens of which some are still there plus $93 billion of first class military equipment left behind for the terrorists to use or sale. Illegal vaccine mandates which the SCOTUS declared unconstitutional. More covid cases and deaths in 2021 than in 2020....didn't Turnip Brain Biden say any President with over 200,000 deaths should resign - still waiting for Turnip to do so. Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea are laughing at the USA for having such a weak Senile Demented President as Biden is. And all of that plus some more that I probably left out in only one year.

    Leftau, you have repeated that any number of times. How about you give us the statistics for 2021 where there were more than 400,000 under Biden.

    So far as Trump staying out of the way, he also caused the government beauocracy to get out of the way.

    Now if we could get Biden the hell out of the way we could get somewhere. Everything you claim for him regarding covid was started under Trump.

  • Mr. VanGennip,

    “…was started under Trump…”

    Again, you’re letting your “Trumpism” get in the way of facts.

    After the Phizer and Moderna were developed (during the end of the Trump administration) vaccine distribution was left in “limbo” due to Trump’s obsession with undoing the honest and fair Biden election victory. Biden picked “up the ball” and we went from about 2 million vaccinated to over 200 million.

    “…get a vaccine developed in record time…”

    That’s correct, but the accomplishment was preceded by years of medical and scientific research by both private and government labs.

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    “…name the vaccine…”

    From USAMRIID….

    “…the development of vaccines and therapeutics against Argentine, Korean and Bolivian hemorrhagic fevers, Lassa fever and other exotic diseases…”

    “…a new program to improve the existing anthrax vaccine…”

    …and…

    “THE CINDER BLOCK hallways inside the US Army’s top virus research lab are punctuated every few feet with windows that peer into tiny offices and laboratories crammed with scientific equipment. On each doorway, orange placards with that Vulcan-looking biohazard symbol keep visitors alert. Through one window, you can just make out the heads of two people dressed in Tyvek suits and respirators. They seem to be laughing about something, but their work is deadly serious.

    :The pair are growing the SARS CoV-2 virus in round plastic dishes. In February, the CDC sent the Army about 10 drops of blood from one of the first Covid-19 patients, a Washington state man in his fifties who was the epidemic’s first US death. Since then, the Army researchers isolated the virus and have been making more of it to ship to other labs designing a vaccine or treatment against coronavirus.

    “If any science lab should be poised to tackle the current outbreak, it’s the US Army Institute of Infectious Diseases, or USAMRIID. This squat tan-colored facility sits in the middle of the sprawling grounds of Fort Detrick, Maryland, about an hour north of Washington, DC. Its scientists have been handling the world’s most dangerous organisms since the late 1960s.”

    "Biden picked “up the ball” and we went from about 2 million vaccinated to over 200 million."

    No Leftau, Biden was handed the ball which was obviously on play and had not been dropped. To use your numbers Trump had a couple of weeks to put together a program and vaccinate 2 million people. Biden with yhevprogram handed to him has had a year to raise the number to 200 million. Further there have been more deaths during Biden's term in office than Trump's. And Biden had the vaccines and vaccination program handed to him.

    How do you account for Biden's campaign rhetoric with that many deaths on his watch a President should resign. Yet he remains in office and hasn't the decency to resign. How about you address this Leftau. Or, are you too hung up in Bidenism?

    Exactly, the development was based on years of scientific and medical research, much of which was industry-government cooperation and joint efforts.

    The vaccines were enabled within about a year specifically because there was so much relevant work that came first.

    The vaccines may have been approved during his administration but the groundwork had already been accomplished.

    Leftau, if you want to dig deeper, I suppose we could take it back to 1492. I might ask, do you know what happened then.

    First, let's get one thing straight, I never claimed Trump created the vaccine. Trump's contribution was getting government and it's bureaucrats out of the way. This allowed the scientists to get vaccines to market in record time. Do you hate Trump so much you cannot manage to begrudge him any credit? What a sorry POS!

    Time and time again, I've informed you that I don't hate him. I am being realistic about his dishonesty, lack of character, morality and ethics. Recognizing his failings and blunders is not hatred.

    As I said, he gets credit for staying out of the way.

  • Mr. VanGennip,

    Here’s another example of facts contradicting your "narrative" and opinions…

    Biden had nothing to do with Shokin firing.

    Why Was Ukraine's Top Prosecutor Fired? The Issue At The Heart Of The Dispute Gripping Washington

    Per RFE

    “However, there are two big problems with the narrative presented by Trump and Giuliani, according to activists in Ukraine and others.

    For one thing, Ukrainian prosecutors and anti-corruption advocates who were pushing for an investigation into the dealings of Burisma and its owner, Mykola Zlochevskiy, said the probe had been dormant long before Biden leveled his demand.

    "There was no pressure from anyone from the United States" to close the case against Zlochevskiy, Vitaliy Kasko, who was a deputy prosecutor-general under Shokin and is now first deputy prosecutor-general, told Bloomberg News in May. "It was shelved by Ukrainian prosecutors in 2014 and through 2015," he added.

    "Activists say the case had been sabotaged by Shokin himself. As an example, they say two months before Hunter Biden joined Burisma's board, British authorities had requested information from Shokin's office as part of an investigation into alleged money laundering by Zlochevskiy. Shokin ignored them.

    Kaleniuk and AntAC published a detailed timeline of events surrounding the Burisma case, an outline of evidence suggesting that three consecutive chief prosecutors of Ukraine -- first Shokin’s predecessor, then Shokin, and then his successor -- worked to bury it.

    "Ironically, Joe Biden asked Shokin to leave because the prosecutor failed [to pursue] the Burisma investigation, not because Shokin was tough and active with this case," Kaleniuk said.

    "Ukrainian prosecutors have described no evidence indicating that Biden sought to help his son by getting Shokin dismissed -- and have suggested that they have not discovered any such evidence.

    "But there is a long list of Western organizations, governments, and diplomats, as well as Ukrainian anti-corruption groups, that wanted to see Shokin fired.

    "They include the International Monetary Fund, the European Union, the U.S. government, foreign investors, and Ukrainian advocates of reform.

    If it were a matter of getting the best person, we'd be better off eliminating political parties and having about 10 highly qualified individuals submit detailed resumes and have a nationwide vote to select one person as President and the runner up as Vice-President.

    Leftau, are you totally dense or out of your mind. I told you at least a dozen times, I don't dance to any damed politician's music and lies. If you're that slow, I can draw you a picture. I don't read or listen to Trump nor do I follow your so called facts most of which are imagined fabrications.

    I do not know or care what Trump says or does regarding Joe Biden , I do my own thinking, and I think Joe Biden is lower than a snakes belt buckle when it comes to integrity. Like it or lump it I don't care.

    Semo471, Leftau would learn what thinking was all about if he had to sign paychecks on the front instead of just on the back 12 to 52 times a year. You have to think in terms of keeping $ in the bank when those checks are presented for payment.

  • There are several ways to consider paycheck signatures...

    Because of the quality of my work, I received pay raises, promotions and got to sign the back of a check (or get payment through direct deposit.)

    I'm guessing that you got to sign the front because of the quality of work of others, not necessarily yours.

    Well we're gaining on it now. Perhaps when you learn the Thought, Blood,Sweat and Tears it takes to start and make a small business work your education in that area will be complete. When we started ours, and I say we because I had an excellent partner, my wife, there was one recently started business and another started same time as our own. The 2nd one was gone within a year, the first didn't make it 5 years. Ours, although not owned by us any longer celebrates 59 years within roughly 60 days. Look up the statistics on new business startups sometime

    We were just lucky I guess. But, I signed the front of paychecks for two retired army men I hired while personally operating the business.

    "That's highly commendable, but the fact remains that you also "profited" from the work of others."

    I thought about letting this slide, then I thought no, Leftau needs to learn and understand how things work.

    Leftau, let me explain the economics of the situation where an Employer hires an Employee

    1. The employee has a job and receives a check so they can feed their family.

    2. The employee pays taxes for the government to squander however they see fit.

    3. The employee is not collecting unemployment. Or worse, welfare.

    4. The employer gets to file tons of government paperwork.

    5. The employer gets to pay into the employee's Social Security.

    6. The employer gets to contribute to the employee's health insurance

    7. The employer gets to pocket what is left over.

    8. The employer gers to pay mote taxes for the government to squander.

    And that Leftau is just a partial list of the Employer - Employee relationship.

    "That's all obvious. What's your point?"

    My point was to try and make it simple for you to understand Leftau that hiring an employee is just a tad more complicated than making a profit off said employee's labor, as you implied below. And I don't need you to explain to me #7 is just a bit more complicated. I know. I walked the walk, you talk the talk. I have no idea what your text books may say about running a business, I got my education for it in the school of hard knocks. Fortunately my business was established and my education was at a point that I could withstand a broadside when my primary supplier was sold. The new company sent in a bunch of college boys with MBA behind their name and they thought they could take advantage of poor Country Hillbillies like me. I survived as did most of my friends in the same business around the country did, most of the Yuppie MBA's did not.

    "but the fact remains that you also "profited" from the work of others."

    And that above statement is an oversimplification of how business works.

    The bottom line is, it has to be a good deal for employer and employee to create an environment for success. I don't really care for the yuppie win, win description of a long range successful endeavor of any kind, but that is what it is.

    Getting off track on this thread, but here is another "you didn’t build that" story.

    https://share.newsbreak.com/dgj5mrfd

    I don't shop Schnucks, but I admire their success story. They say you have to have a "Business Plan" when starting a business, I suspect that original Schnuck had one similar to my own which pretty much amounted to, work hard and try to keep from starving to death, and plan your moves as you go. I doubt Mr Schnuck saw in his mind what a great organization they would grow into. Same thing most likely applied to Mr. Ford when he joined the "Horseless Carriage" building business.

    The idea that you had to have a detailed written business plan came along later pushed by the same kind of thinking that birthed the "you didn't build that" BS.

    Leftau, as I told you before when you offered this feeble excuse for Obama's oversized mouth. I'm not buying it. I started building bridges when I was 18, purchased my first automobile and started sticking a fuel nozzle in my tank and I kept building roads and bridges as I put fuel nozzles in the tanks of my trucks as well as paying taxes and employing people to put fuel in their tanks.

    You are not selling that BS uncontested here Leftau. That dreamed up excuse for Obama's oversized mouth won't pass muster. And that SOB was not there in the early days when I was dragging my body out of bed at 2:00 am to fix a malfunctioning furnace in a truck that had it's wheels literally frozen to the ground. Blow your smoke elsewhere, people like myself do not appreciate being denigrated by a cocky president of questionable unmarried parents. Got that??

    BS Spreader Lettau: Here is Obama's speech word per word. Pay note: "If you’ve got a business -- you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen."

    "There are a lot of wealthy, successful Americans who agree with me -- because they want to give something back. They know they didn’t -- look, if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get there on your own. I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart. There are a lot of smart people out there. It must be because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something -- there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there.

    "If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business -- you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen. The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet.

    "The point is, is that when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together. There are some things, just like fighting fires, we don’t do on our own. I mean, imagine if everybody had their own fire service. That would be a hard way to organize fighting fires.

    "So we say to ourselves, ever since the founding of this country, you know what, there are some things we do better together. That’s how we funded the G.I. Bill. That’s how we created the middle class. That’s how we built the Golden Gate Bridge or the Hoover Dam. That’s how we invented the Internet. That’s how we sent a man to the moon. We rise or fall together as one nation and as one people, and that’s the reason I’m running for President -- because I still believe in that idea. You’re not on your own, we’re in this together."

  • Mr. Braswell,

    This is a more complete quote…

    "Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you've got a business, you didn't build that."

    The subject is “this unbelievable American system” and no individual person did that. “You [individually] didn’t build that, but you [collectively] did.

    “That” in context clearly refers to “roads and bridges.”

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    It so happened that the republicans at that time were the “sensitive snowflakes” that intentionally misinterpreted the statement, whining about how they did too, “build their own business.”

    Of course they did, and no one said otherwise. Trying to make themselves out to be victims by fake, slanderous claims, rather admit it was deliberately misunderstood is a time-honored republican/conservative technique.

    Mr. Braswell and Mr. VanGennip, in this instance appear to be the "chief snowflakes."

    Leftau, before any business is built there has to be a need. There were wagon makers, candle makers, clock makers, carpenters long before America existed. Coming to America created needs and some saw a need and rose to the challenge. I recognize all of that.

    However this part of his word salad created by him or speech writers stands out and is insulting....

    "If you've got a business, you didn't build that."

    That is a direct lie and insult to thousands of people who bit the bullet and did it.

    I was invited to come to my town and start my business as there was a need. There are two parts to it Leftau.

    1. There has to be a need for the product.

    2. There has to be an individual or group with desire, need and guts to fill that need.

    The statement "you didn't build that" is a lie and an insult. You can stutter and stammer and lie to make his insulting statement true, but it won't fly Leftau. Haven't you carried water for Obama long enough Leftau? If starting a business was so easy Leftau, why didn't you do it? You like to talk the talk and tell everybody there is nothing to it, but you haven't taken a single step in the walk to do it. Try it sometime and report back on how easy it is. If there were no Edison or Fords and many others, you would be scribbling your notes with a quill pen with a candle for light, and your food would be raised by Farmers using Oxen. All you have proved so far Leftau, Obama was too dense to be President. Otherwise he would never have read that word salad off a teleprompter. For that matter without people like Edison to make the teleprompter possible, he would have never been President. Who would have voted for a candidate standing in front of them stuttering I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I, with nothing else,, on and on as he has done on occasion.

    With around 30 Dems cutting and running away from Joey its something to ponder.

    History Lesson on Your Social Security Card

    Just in case some of you young whippersnappers (& some older ones) didn't know this, it's easy to check out, if you don't believe it. Be sure and show it to your family and friends. They need a little history lesson on what's what and it doesn't matter whether you are Democrat or Republican. Facts are Facts.

    Social Security Cards up until the 1980's expressly stated the number and card were not to be used for identification purposes. Since nearly everyone in the United States now has a number, it became convenient to use it anyway and the message, NOT FOR IDENTIFICATION, was removed.

    http://blog.kir.com/archives/images/social security.gif

    An old Social Security card with the "NOT FOR IDENTIFICATION" message

    Our Social Security

    Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, introduced the Social Security (FICA) Program.

    He promised:

    1.) That participation in the Program would be completely voluntary.

    No longer Voluntary

    2.) That the participants would only have to pay 1% of the first $1,400 of their annual incomes into the program.

    Now 7.65% on the first $90,000

    3.) That the money the participants elected to put into the program would be deductible from their income for tax purposes each year.

    No longer tax deductible

    4.) That the money the participants put in would go into the independent 'Trust Fund' rather than into the general operating fund, and therefore, would only be used to fund the Social Security Retirement Program, and no other government program.

    Under Johnson the money was moved to The General Fund and Spent

    5.) That the annuity payments to the retirees would never be taxed as income.

    Under Clinton & Gore up to 85% of your Social Security can be taxed

    Since many of us have paid into FICA for years and are now receiving a Social Security check every month --

    and then finding that we are getting taxed on 85% of the money we paid to the Federal government to 'put away' --

    you may be interested in the following:

    ------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- ---------

    Q: Which Political Party took Social Security from the independent 'Trust Fund' and put it into the general fund so that Congress could spend it?

    A: It was Lyndon Johnson and the democratically controlled House and Senate.

    ------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --

    Q: Which Political Party eliminated the income tax deduction for Social Security (FICA) withholding?

    A: The Democratic Party.

    ------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- -----

    Q: Which Political Party started taxing Social Security annuities?

    A: The Democratic Party, with Al Gore casting the 'tie-breaking' deciding vote as President of the Senate, while he was Vice President of the US.

    ------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- ---------

    AND MY FAVORITE:

    Q: Which Political Party decided to start giving annuity payments to immigrants?

    A: That's right! Jimmy Carter and the Democratic Party.

    Immigrants moved into this country, and at age 65, began to receive Social Security payments! The Democratic Party gave these payments to them, even though they never paid a dime into it!

    ------------ ------------ --------- ------------ --------- ---------

    Then, after violating the original contract (FICA), the Democrats now turn around and tell you that the Republicans want to take your Social Security away!

    And the worst part about it is uninformed citizens believe it!

    If enough people receive this, maybe a seed of awareness will be planted and maybe changes will evolve. Maybe not, some Democrats are awfully sure of what isn't so.

    And so far as Trump is concerned Water Boy, he has not been a part of this conversation. You try and defend Biden by mentioning Trump's behaviour.

    So with 2500 "insurrectionists" attacking the Capital, it is very far from being a "relative few." More like 25%.

    And as the "insurrectionists" completely overran about 1200 Capital police, it was in no way a "relative few."

    And an official estimate I gave you with proof showed 80,000 people in the Capitol, 8 X's more than fake news estimated it. So Leftau, your trying to paint the entire crowd with the s a me brush as the relative few is pure BS plain and simple. Makes you look as phoney as a $3 bill Lefty.

    Keep carrying water for your leftist Democrat Party. Wait until they give you Socialism/Communism for your reward. Is that what you want for your family.

  • Mr. VanGennip,

    You really must be a reincarnation of "Tail Gunner" Joe McCarthy, seeing a Commie behind every bush.

    What you totally ignore is that the only "power hungry" politician in recent memory is our "insurrectionist" former one term, twice impeached President. You know the one that was called out by Mike Pence.

    Please provide a quote from any American politician in a position of power that advocates communism.

  • In case you missed it….

    Finally some honesty from the VP.

    “Vice President Mike Pence on Friday resoundingly rejected a claim by former President Trump that he had the ability to overturn the 2020 presidential election, saying that there's little that is more un-American than the notion that any president can choose the nation's leader.

    "There are those in our party who believe that as the presiding officer of the joint session of Congress that I possessed unilateral authority to reject Electoral College Votes. And I heard this week that President Trump said I had the right to overturn the election. President Trump is wrong," Pence said during a speech in Florida to the Federalist Society. "I had no right to overturn the election."

    "The presidency belongs to the American people and the American people alone," Pence continued. "And frankly, there is no idea more un-American than the notion that any one American could choose the American president. Under the Constitution, I had no right to change the outcome of our election."

    Pence says "Trump is wrong" that he had a right to overturn 2020 election - CBS News

    So Mr. VanGennip, do you believe Pence or Trump?

    Guess you forgot that Pres. Reagan was also a Democrat and like Trump, they both saw the light about the corrupt Democrats and switched parties.

    BTW, Adam Kinzinger the RINO is not running for re-election because he saw the writing on the wall months ago.

    When mentioning the midterms, you posted "D" or "R" but no "I" how come - oh, that's right when you vote there are no Independents only D or R. LOL

    Nothing was "dictated."

    This is a straight forward public health issue, not a "Constitutionality" question.

    Individuals had the choice of a vaccination, taking tests, working remotely if possible, taking a leave of absence, or finding a different job.

    The vast majority of normal Americans don't think it's an issue at all. As you're probably aware, it's been a pandemic of the unvaccinated for over a year.

    Mr. VanGennip,

    1.) Nothing was "dictated."

    Response: That is a dam lie! It was an unauthorized order to either do as told or lose your job.

    2.) This is a straight forward public health issue, not a "Constitutionality" question.

    Response: Show us in the Constitution where it says public health has anything to do with one man rule. We have an elected Legislature that makes laws and rules, not one man!

    Whoa, wait a minute, wasn't one man rule what you brought up about Trump and his VP? Leftau are you trying to say if a Democrat can dream up a reason they can dictate to the rest of us, but that doesn't apply to anyone else?

    3.) Individuals had the choice of a vaccination, taking tests, working remotely if possible, taking a leave of absence, or finding a different job.

    Response: And that justifies one man rule? BS!!! People in Communist countries everywhere have the choice of doing what they are told or being imprisoned or executed. Everybody has a choice if given an order Leftau, but it isn't much of a choice if it is do what you are told or you loose your job, or your freedom, or your life.

    4.) The vast majority of normal Americans don't think it's an issue at all. As you're probably aware, it's been a pandemic of the unvaccinated for over a year.

    Response: Oh really, where are your numbers to prove that statement, Water Boy? Your word means little on here.

    The democratic party has no need to "bring him down."

    You may have forgotten, but the American people brought him down in November of 2020 by telling him "you're fired" and get out of our White House.

    2.) The democratic party has no need to "bring him down."

    Response: It is spelled R_e_v_e_n_g_e Water Boy. Are you trying to deny they didn't puruse him with investigations and charges of Impeachment for 4 long years and lost on every one of them. Get a life BOY, and accept reality.

    3.) You may have forgotten, but the American people brought him down in November of 2020 by telling him "you're fired" and get out of our White House.

    More of your dreamed up wordage that has no bearing on the American system of elections and how they are carried out. You have been instructed how our system works a number of times and do not seem to have a grasp on it yet.

    Reality is, the Amerecan people made a huge mistake by letting the Democratic Party pawn off, a man who is essentially brain deceased, on them.

    4.) All that's going on now is the democrats trying to help normal republicans from destroying their party.

    Response: Speak of a hillareous statement, that one goes right to the top of the charts. In reality it is a total crock of BS.

    "...do you think he can pass it?"

    I have no way of knowing for sure, but I believe he could.

    I also can easily understand why he would not waste his time taking a test as simple as the one Trump took. The simple reason is that it would not prove anything to anyone.

    Were he to have passed a test, would you and republican/conservatives then be satisfied and give him full credit for cognitive ability. I'd say not, I'd guess you'd claim he cheated, or the test was too easy, or more likely, you'd say it didn't prove anything.

    The same is true of Trump. Whether he passed it or not, it didn't make him a "better president," it didn't prevent him from making the same blunders, or poor decisions. It clearly didn't prevent him from trying to overthrow a fair and legitimate election.

    So, yes, I think he'd pass it.

    No Leftau, mine was a comparison of him to Biden.

    Trump was a proven administrator who amassed a fortune, like his tactics ot not.

    Biden has never had a real job and spent his working years as a "swamp dweller" with no real accomplishments. Unless you consider his Ukrainian "quid pro quo" an accomplishment.

  • "Analysis: Trump's legal woes deepen and could bring new political trouble"

    "(CNN)He might say he's the master of the art of the deal. But Donald Trump's real superpower is his talent for wriggling out of accountability after sailing close to the law and normal rules of politics, business and life in a way that would have destroyed most public figures long ago.

    "However, after he bounced back following a lifetime of business bankruptcies, scandals and impeachments, it might soon be time to consider whether the ex-President's flair for impunity is starting to fail him after a string of legal defeats tightened a net of scrutiny around him.

    "In the latest blow on Thursday, a judge in New York ruled that Trump and his eldest two children, Donald Jr. and Ivanka, must sit for depositions in the New York attorney general's civil probe into their business practices. It was far from Trump's only recent rough day in court."

    And we all remember him stating emphatically that...

    "If you are not guilty of a crime, what do you need immunity for?" Trump said at a campaign rally in Florida in September.

    "The mob takes the Fifth Amendment," Trump said at a campaign event in Iowa later that month. "If you're innocent, why are you taking the Fifth Amendment?"

    However, there are plenty of disasters caused by Turnip Brain Biden that will sink the Dems in Nov. If Harris and Pelosi were smart they would insist on Biden to take a cognitive test and then invoke the 25th Amendment to keep Biden from doing anymore harm to the USA.

    Open southern border allowing thousands and thousands of new wards of the federal government along with possible terrorists.

    7.5% Inflation Tax that is only going up.

    Oil/gas dependence whereas Independent under Trump.

    Unconstitutional vaccine mandates with the threat of employment termination.

    Afghanistan Withdrawal Fiasco leaving American citizens and military equipment behind.

    The Crack Pipes give away program at $30 million.

    The attack of parents as terrorists for voicing displeasure with their school boards.

    The lack of support for the police leading to the up tick of crimes by double digits.

    The Biden family's ties of corruption with Ukraine, Russia, and China.

    Here is something happening right now that is of a much greater concern than what happened on Jan 6, which appears to be all you have.

    Water Boy, you are trying to make a library of questions out of the one incident. I already told you I didn't agree with what happened. To answer your one incident because it is all you can find to disagree with out of 4 years, you want me to answer a flurry of questions which I obviously cannot answer as I was not there and I don't read minds.

    Water Boy, you are the one who tried to claim Trump's Presidency was a disaster, but you are very short on facts, appearing to only have one item to enumerate and you try to make it of earth shaking consequence by trying to ask me questions instead of giving us the list of charges you have suggested you had. If that is all you have, it would appear he had a pretty good run with the exception of the one item you can think of and it is obvious it did not go as planned, with a relative few who got totally out of hand and will have to pay for their poor judgement.

    Another lesson...

    Social security is not taxed if it's your only source of income.

    What about the money remaining in Trust and the Dims made that a lie also.

    So when you cast a stone be careful that it doesn't bounce back and hit you.

    Leftau, I will expose whomever I please. I know dictating to others is a Democrat and/or a Communists way of life. Take Biden for an example, but nowhere that I am aware that, am I obliged to take orders from you. Trump is not President, Barack Obama is not President and Bill Clinton is not President, but they all have one thing in common. Want to try and guess what it is? And Slick Willy lied under Oath.

    And all of a sudden, you don't want to talk about Presidents who have lied.

    And the current President continues to lie.

    Well Leftau, if you are speaking of Biden, he said he would stop Covid, he has not and Covid is ongoing, so his lie is alive and ongoing as he has not corrected his lie. Also he said a President with 300000 deaths under his watch should resign. Biden has more under his watch and he has not resigned yet.... unless of course he did it in the last 10 minutes and I have not read it yet.

    Biden's Presidencey is weaker snd much worse than Trump's. He fouls up everything he touches. Down to his choice as Vice president.

  • More goofiness on your part.

    The end of Covid-19 was right there just about a year ago. Then the "anti-vac'ers" came out of the woodwork and the goal of 80 to 90% vaccinated was stymied, by many red states. So it became a pandemic of the unvaccinated, and the death count rose accordingly. How is that Biden's fault? Vaccines were available to every American. That's what he "promised." You can lead republicans/conservatives to the vaccine but you can't make them take the shot.

    Water Boy, you tried throwing into the mix that only candidates for office were fair game. Not buying that lame attempt. There are no candidates for office yet and you have been on Trump's case strong, since day one of his defeating Broom Hilda and continuously up until now. So not buying your attempt to remove all Democrats from criticism. I personally do not believe Trump will be the Republicans candidate in 2024. Nor do I believe the Dims will be dense enough to pull their less than brilliant mistake of running brain deceased Biden again.

    Nice try Water Boy, but it won't fly. 100% vaccinations are not going to stop covid by itself. People with vaccinations and booster shots are getting it. Biden should not have shot his mouth off and lied about something he did not have the wherewithal to complete. His attempt at dictating to free citizens was another mistake. He never had the authority under our Constitution to do so. I personally feel all should get the shot. Wife and I did along with the booster. It does not come with a guarantee. You can spout off and make goofy statements about what kind of epidemic it is, but it is your opinion and meaningless. The problem started with China and will end? We know not where. But Biden is not going to cure it. Hopefully the medical field gets it stopped and soon.

    I will take that as your opinion which is for all practical purpose, meaningless.

    Biden has fixed nothing. HE fouled up what Trump had fixed and look what that has got us. We were energy independent, he fouled that up and our fuel prices are up. He canceled Trump's Southern Border Policy and now we have hordes of new dependents overwhelming us to the point Trump is having them scattered all over our country under the cover of darkness, with absolutely no consideration for Covid and American citizens. And they will be drawing on our welfare system, count on it. Piling them into airplanes with no regard for anything. However they would like to institute a Covid Passport on me and the promise of a "Real ID" in the not too distant future to fly. Meanwhile since I choose to invest so that I may remain independent of the welfare system. I get to support this foolishness with my tax dollars. And in return, I will vote against every SOB for office that supports it.

    BS Spreader Lettau: Good try at spinning and twisting the facts! Here is the truth to correct your misinformation:

    "Covid is on its way out for us vaccinated people (still hard to imagine why there are some deciding to risk death by refusing a safe and sane vaccine.)"

    Yep, more deaths under Biden's first year with vaccines than the year 2020 with no vaccines - when is Biden resigning like he told Trump to with 250,000 deaths? As always Biden lied!

    "Unemployment is down considerably."

    When the unemployed from the shutdowns are re-employed it's not a plus and BTW, still down from pre-virus Trump days.

    "The stock market continues to move upward."

    Everyone knows (well almost everyone) that when there is high inflation the stock market is the only place to put any extra money.

    "Wages are increasing."

    Because the government is paying folks to stay home and draw those checks creating a worker shortage. If you didn't get an 8% wage increase you are losing money every day!

    "The level of inflation due to various covid related causes, supply chain slowdown and world oil prices will go down again."

    The Inflation of 7.5% is going to continue to go up according to the Fed in 2022.

    "There was bipartisan agreement on infrastructure."

    That was only because everyone wanted the pork to ensure their re-election in Nov. 2022.

    "Both parties agreed to counter Chinese competition."

    To continue what Trump started.

    "The republicans are moving away from Trump."

    Unlike Biden's 35% approval rating with voters, Trump still has between 65% to 75% (depending on what poll is used) support of Republicans.

    "The US will aid Ukraine with arms and funds but will not be involved militarily."

    You better ask the DNC again on this one - Old Turnip Brain Biden and VP Harris are both tromping their chests over their threats to Russia.

  • It’s not surprising that when so many conspiracy theories are embraced, it’s hard to keep them straight. In this case, it seems that you’ve been duped by conservative fiction concerning “ghost flights.”

    “Ghost flights! Secret flights with “underage migrants” in the dead of night! Buses packed with adult “illegal aliens!”

    “If you are not a regular watcher of Fox News or a reader of the New York Post, Breitbart or the Daily Mail, you might be puzzled by the references above. There’s been virtually no coverage of this supposed news by mainstream media outlets. But there’s been a constant drumbeat of concern in right-wing media, highlighted often by GOP candidates running for governor in Pennsylvania and New York. So one of our colleagues suggested we try to figure out what’s going on.

    “The implication in some of the news coverage is that the Biden administration is quietly dumping undocumented immigrants into various states away from the border. But that’s wrong. As far as we can tell, little new or different is going on under Biden than under the Trump administration, though the pace of such flights may have increased because of the surge of migrants at the border.

    This is more of an explainer, so we’re not offering a Pinocchio rating.

    The Facts

    Both U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) fly undocumented immigrants to different locations in the United States. ICE handles adults and HHS is responsible for children. At times, both agencies rely on the same contractor, MVM Inc., to manage the flights.

    "In other words, the same aircraft and crew could one day be ferrying adults to an ICE detention center and the next day carrying unaccompanied minors for HHS. Moreover, on occasion ICE Air, as the entity is known, might be contracted to handle an HHS flight.

    “Some of the confusion comes from the fact that we use MVM, the contractor, and so does HHS,” said an ICE official. “We often are charged with providing transportation of unaccompanied minors.”

    “ICE itself transports thousands of detainees to different detention facilities, in part to maintain a 75 percent bed capacity because of pandemic protocols, the official said. About 21,000 people were in ICE detention as of Jan. 16, compared with about 27,000 in July, according to Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse.

    “It’s important to highlight that these are individuals in our custody,” the official said. “We do not transport individuals on ICE flights that have been released from our custody or paroled into the U.S. to await immigration proceedings.”

    “In some cases, the news reporting appears to have mixed up the type of flights or not made it clear that HHS is sending unaccompanied children to relatives or sponsors. Then, when administration officials explained these were HHS flights, an ICE flight would be spotted, resulting in accusations that adults also were being secretly being shipped across the country. But these are just ICE detainees going to another detention facility, officials said.

    The above is total BS. If things were being done as they were under the Trump administration we wouldn't be discussing this, period.

    Trump had the border under control and Biden changed it with the stroke of a pen.

    And Water Boy, You and Biden can not cover it up with an insinuation that it is a "Conspiracy Theory."

    Your stating that the main stream media or not reporting on it is laughable. Of course the in the pocket Democratic butt boys are not reporting on it, but others are and I have more faith in what I am reading than I do you, Water Boy.

    Water Boy, I don't take so called facts seriously that are not documented.

    And one thing about not taking fact seriously. You obviously have never accepted the fact that Joe Biden screwed up our Southern Border after he was handed it relatively secure.

    Basically same thing with our energy independence.

    A couple of politically motivated EO's and we Americans pay the price for the mistake the Dims put in office.

    What I fail to see is how those EO's did anything to benefit the United States. They were nothing but get back at Trump and try to spoil his legacy. In reality they are going to reflect bacly on Biden and the Democrats because of how it turned out.... higher fuel prices and a non secure border. By the way a service station that had regular gas for $3.06 per gallong yesterday is at $3.19 today. Good job Joe, give us some more of your EO's. They are a real benefit aren't they.

    Try accepting those facts Water Boy.

    And try making us believe that ICE is now sleeping all day and working at night. as a regular order of doing business.

  • Illegal Border Crossings, Driven by Pandemic and Natural Disasters, Soar to Record High

    “A record 1.7 million migrants from around the world, many of them fleeing pandemic-ravaged countries, were encountered trying to enter the United States illegally in the last 12 months, capping a year of chaos at the southern border, which has emerged as one of the most formidable challenges for the Biden administration.

    “It was the highest number of illegal crossings recorded since at least 1960, when the government first began tracking such entries. The number was similarly high for the 2000 fiscal year, when border agents caught 1.6 million people, according to government data.

    “Single adults represented the largest group of those detained in the fiscal year that ended Sept. 30, at 1.1 million, or 64 percent of all crossers. There were also large numbers of migrant families — more than 479,000, which is about 48,000 fewer than during the last surge in family crossings in 2019.

    “But the nearly 147,000 children whom agents encountered without parents or guardians was the largest number since 2008, when the government started tallying unaccompanied minors. Finding shelter for these migrant children, until they can be released to relatives or other sponsors in the country, was one of the president’s earliest challenges. As of Friday, nearly 11,000 remained in government custody.

    “The crossers hailed from around the globe, many of them seeking economic opportunity as the coronavirus pandemic erased hundreds of millions of jobs. Agents caught people from more than 160 countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America, with Mexico accounting for the largest share.

    “A public health rule, invoked by President Donald J. Trump at the beginning of the pandemic in 2020 to seal the border, has remained in place under the Biden administration. Over the last 12 months, the Border Patrol has carried out more than one million expulsions of migrants back to Mexico or to the migrants’ home countries. Agents used the public health rule to expel migrants they encountered 61 percent of the time and to expel families 26 percent of the time.

    “President Biden has walked a fine line between trying to control the influx and put in place a more humane approach to border enforcement. Republicans have blamed Mr. Biden’s promises to reverse Trump-era immigration policies for fueling the surge, as word spread that the country’s borders had become easier to breach.

    “What we are seeing at the southern border is a crisis,” Mike Pompeo, a former secretary of state under Mr. Trump, said on Twitter Friday afternoon. “If the Biden Administration would’ve kept the policies we had in place, this would have never happened.”

    “In particular, Republican lawmakers have been sharply critical of the admission of tens of thousands of unaccompanied children, along with many families, who would have been turned back under the Trump administration. The Border Patrol released nearly 250,000 migrants into the country, including some with instructions to appear before an immigration judge for removal proceedings, according to Customs and Border Protection.

    Illegal Border Crossings Soar to Record High, New Data Shows - The New York Times (nytimes.com)

    However, almost all were expelled and it appears less than 15% (less if children are excluded) were allowed in for immigration proceedings.

    Next will come the custoary aversion to facts from SO, watch for it.

  • Trump Damage to America -- (Volume I)

    Persistent, calculated and disingenuous practice of lying to the American public. Started even before his first full day in office by claiming falsely that “my crowd was bigger than his crowd.”

    Failed to fulfill campaign promise of tax cuts for the middle class by giving tax cuts to the rich, as per Trump’s quote to Mar a Lago diners, “I just made you all a lot richer.”

    Gave underserved attention and recognition to North Korea by “honoring” Kim Jung Un, while gaining zero benefit or advantage to the USA or South Korea.

    Withdrew from the 6 party Iran nuclear agreement, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), which would have kept Iran from making a nuclear bomb, while having no back up plan.

    Withdrew from the Paris climate agreement, but fortunately US states and corporations continued to cooperate. And through repeated denial of the challenge of climate change, which is an existential threat, he devitalized and compromised our national security.

    Invited violence and defended racist groups such as the “proud boys” and anti-Semitic demonstrators in Charlottesville Va.

    Made light of Russian election interference and specifically stated belief of Putin over information provided by US intelligence agencies in Helsinki. Invited further Russian meddling.

    Was a complete failure in handling the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic. Instead of insisting that we take it seriously he spent months joking about it being just 1 person from China. By his incompetence, the US did not pay nearly enough attention to mitigation efforts such as masking, contact tracing, social distancing, quarantines and avoiding large indoor gatherings. The result was with less than 5% of the world’s population, we had from 20 to 25% of cases and deaths.

    He intentionally corroded and undermined “social trust.” This critical element of a successful society was ignored and the prediction of SecState Shultz, who wrote. “When trust was not in the room, good things did not happen. Everything else is details,” came true.

    Established rules on sexual harassment were rolled back.

    He operates on the theory which claims, “That which you can get away with, is true.” He has no respect for honesty and facts.

    He abdicated leadership of the free world, primarily by degrading and disrespecting our friends and allies.

    By repeated affronts, he destabilized and weakened NATO, our primary mutual defense pact.

    Trump has “cheapened” the position of President like no other occupant before him. He “instilled distrust in essential institutions of justice and democracy, and replaced knowledge and professionalism with ignorance and amateurism.” (Author unknown but absolutely correct.)

    More Trump bad news

    Republican Accountability Project

    It’s time to tell the GOP we’ve had enough of the lies and conspiracies. Republicans and conservatives across the country are doing just that.

    “On the surface, it seems like Republicans can't decide how they feel about Russian President Vladimir Putin invading the sovereign country of Ukraine.

    "On one hand, the more old guard GOP leadership is formally denouncing Putin and trying to score their political points against Joe Biden by claiming that this is evidence that the U.S. president is "weak." But both their de facto leader, Donald Trump, and their de facto party agenda-setter, Tucker Carlson, have been out there making their love and support of Putin known.

    "As with every internal conflict in the GOP, the smart bet is the Trumpian wing will win over the traditional conservatives, even though it once again means that Republicans will be siding against America and democracy in favor of the forces of authoritarianism.

    New research on Trump voters: They're not the sharpest tools in the box (msn.com)

    “The United States is experiencing an existential democracy crisis, with leading Republicans and millions of their voters and supporters either tacitly or explicitly embracing authoritarianism or fascism. Democrats, for the most part, have not responded with the urgency required to save America's democracy from the rising neofascist tide.

    “What does this mean for the present and future of American democracy in this time of crisis? Sherkat cited the "disturbing ... influence of anti-intellectualism on American public life," which lends "performative power to ignorant elites":

    “Spouting off obvious untruths is no longer a mark of shame, because even basic historical and contemporary truths are not recognized. We seem to have a stable set of about 30% of Americans, 35% of white Americans, who are oblivious to political realities and incapable and unwilling to come to terms with any of our key social problems. The increasing control over public education by right-wing fanatics is entrenching ignorance and intellectual laziness in future generations. It does not bode well for the future of American democracy.

    “Donald Trump and his movement did not create all these American authoritarians and aspiring fascists. Such people have long been a feature of American society. What Trump and have accomplished in recent years is to empower and normalize a dangerous set of antisocial, anti-human, retrograde and anti-democratic values and beliefs.

    “Saving America's democracy will require a moral and political reckoning and acts of critical self-reflection on a nationwide scale about the American people's character and values, and about how their leaders and governing institutions have failed them.”

    I have a cousin who had to teach her Grandchildren how to write in cursive. It was not being taught at their schools. What is to happen to these kids when they get out in the real world and cannot even sign their names. You are surrounded in name signing requirements in modern day life from purchasing groceries and using a credit card or a check to someday buying a car or a home. What is wrong with these people's thinking. Sure we have a world full of electronics, but I do not see signing your name going totally away. Guess those who do not learn will be faced with what our Great Grandfathers in many cases had to do, sign with an X and find someone who could write, to witness your X as your signature.

    When it comes to CRT, I believe anything along that line taught during the first 8 grades is nothing more than indocrination. I have no problem with it being taught to Juniors or Seniors in High School where their thought processes have matured enough to do rational thinking for themselves. By it's own title it is not necessarily a fact, but a theory developed by people with a slanted interest and an agenda. I can remember a high school teacher with a very slanted political agenda. But here we are talking high school and while we were still in a learning stage we had mentally developed to where we could separate fact from opinion. My opinion, the job of primary school teachers is to teach people to think and learn the basics. Keep your personal agendas personal. If you can teach a child to read, to write and some other basics along with History and Geography by the time he/she graduates High School, the job is pretty much complete here. From that point he/she is off to College or enters the work force and if College is not in the cards, as it is not for every body, that young adult is prepared to complete his/her education by self learning. Creating the desire for knowledge on any or a variety of subjects points them in the direction of success at what they choose. One's greatest achievement is learning how to think and next comes the desire to learn.

    Personally, I have not had one day of formal training on computers, but I have built a number of my own back in the early days and have helped college graduates with problems. How? Because I had good teachers who taught me how to read and think my way through problems. The knowledge is out there if you dig for it.

    Bottom line as I see it, keep the indoctrination out of our schools and teach our children the basics and how to think. With that they will do just fine.

    As I was told by someone near and dear at my Eighth Grade Graduation "Be The Best Of Whatever You Are!" I try but would be the first to admit I don't think I always make it.

    And that bit of advice came from an 8th grade graduate, all there was for her to achieve at the time.

    Bolton Says U.S. Would Be in 'Worse Shape' Had Trump Nixed NATO

    Villarreal 3/10/22 AT 7:03 PM EST

    "John Bolton, the former national security advisor to President Donald Trump, says that the U.S. would be in "worse shape" had Trump withdrawn the U.S. from the North American Treaty Organization (NATO), the Western alliance seeking to limit Russia's military expansion.

    "Trump repeatedly considered leaving the 30-nation alliance during his presidency, Bolton and The New York Times have reported. Doing so would have emboldened Russian President Vladimir Putin and left the U.S. in a weaker position to oppose him during Russia's recent invasion into Ukraine, Bolton said. The administration of current President Joe Biden believes that NATO's unity has deterred Russia from further aggression.

Librarians and teachers warn the trend is on the increase, as groups backed by wealthy Republican donors use centrally drawn up tactics and messaging to harangue school districts into removing certain texts.

    “WASHINGTON, March 24 (Reuters) - Donald Trump on Thursday sued his rival in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, Hillary Clinton, and several other Democrats, alleging that they tried to rig that election by tying his campaign to Russia.

    “The lawsuit covers a long list of grievances the Republican former president repeatedly aired during his four years in the White House after beating Clinton, and comes as he continues to falsely claim that his 2020 election defeat by Democratic President Joe Biden was the result of widespread fraud.”

    It would seem he‘s forgotten the Mueller Report…

    “In his highly-anticipated, 448-page report released on Thursday, special counsel Robert Mueller laid out in painstaking detail the Trump campaign’s willingness to engage with Russian officials on a wide range of politically sensitive matters.

    “Dozens of Russians, directed by the highest levels of the Kremlin, repeatedly contacted at least 17 Trump campaign officials, advisors, and associates. These Trump intermediaries included Ivanka Trump’s friends in the fashion industry, an array of Wall Street bankers and financiers, a Maltese professor and a man mistakenly believed to be an Olympic weightlifter.”

    “A total of 272 contacts between Trump’s team and Russia-linked operatives have been identified, including at least 38 meetings.

    I have never believed in far right, or far left. I have stated before, anything too far left or right is problematic. The BS regarding numerous genders is definitely not a belief of any Conservatives I am aware of.

I'm the one that blocked it. I terminated it. They weren't gonna have it. He (Biden) then opened it.

    The NATO issue is a matter of pure ignorance on Trump's part. The 2% "target" was never money paid into NATO, it was the member nation's own defense spending.

    On Nord Stream 2, he didn't block it and Biden didn't open it. The issue was and is an internal German matter.

    Just a little something I ran across that might interest the Water Boy and his constant whining about Trump's performance so far as NATO is concerned. Seems as if NATO's chief is kind of grateful to Trump and says he had a positive impact on NATO

    https://news.yahoo.com/nato-chief-says-trumps-funding-gripes-having-real-1932182...

    The following quote shows you to be the one who does not understand the funding structure at NATO Water Boy.

    "NATO members agreed in 2014 to spend two percent of their gross domestic product on defense by 2024 but around half are not on course to make that target.

    Stoltenberg said, however, that by the end of 2020, NATO allies would have added $100 billion extra toward defense spending."

    I am sure you will be able to explain to us where NATO's Chief is wrong, and you are correct Water Boy.

    Or as is your normal Modes Operandi, will you just ignore the facts? Or maybe first check the Democratic Talking Points to check how to respond when confronted with the facts?

    Lefty would you think perhaps some of those NATO countries understand they are sitting ducks for nations like Russia and they don't like the thought of the U.S. picking up their marbles and going home? And maybe some thanks is due Trump for waking them up?

    -- Posted by Have_Wheels_Will_Travel on Tue, Mar 29, 2022, at 11:42 PM
  • Stoltenberg is correct.

    NATO member have been increasing their defense expenditures for many years.

    The Secretary-General knows how NATO works. Trump doesn't. Evidence of that is when he makes self-serving statements like, "...NATO was poor and now it is rich..."

    ...or..

    "There would be no NATO if I didn't act strongly and swiftly."

    Both claims are totally untrue, NATO was never poor nor was its existence in jeopardy. All defense funding related to the 2% target is national funding, not NATO funding.

    When Trump claims he got "...delinquent NATO members to start paying their dues..." it just reiterates his ignorance of the facts. The so-called "dues" are what member countries pay into the common fund and no one is delinquent, simply because the 2% target is a totally different issue.

    Try paying attention to the facts, rather than fake Trump claims.

  • Mr. VanGennip,

    Here are a series of quotes from former President Trump. The question is, are any of them factual?

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    "...NATO was poor and now it is rich..."

    "There would be no NATO if I didn't act strongly and swiftly."

    "... but it [the US] was forced to pay the costs of the many delinquent NATO countries…”

    ” …me, as President of the United States, that got delinquent NATO members to start paying their dues..."

    “…many countries [in NATO] owe us a tremendous amount of money for many years back, where they’re delinquent…”

    “….‘if you don’t pay up, no protection’. They all paid up, and paid up quickly…”

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    They are in fact, all untrue, as has been explained to you already.

    However, my prediction is that you will disagree, because seem always to take anything he says as correct. This appears to be the case as you either have no ability, or no desire to adequately factcheck his statements. (Recall Rule 1, Trump is always right…)

    It’s more than clear that you will remain confused and bewildered as long as you allow Trump to do your “thinking” for you.

    ” …me, as President of the United States, that got delinquent NATO members to start paying their dues..."

    Water Boy, most of this is Trump blowing his own horn.

    However the one above is absolutely true. Now you will probably try to pick that apart on the word "dues". But that won't hold water either, once you have agreed on paying something, that is "DUE" and many were not paying it. By the admission of the NATO official, Trump did them a big favor and you in principle are dead wrong on your earlier criticism and not man enough to own up to it.

    You can throw all of the insults you like as in...

    "It’s more than clear that you will remain confused and bewildered as long as you allow Trump to do your “thinking” for you."

    For your information Little Man, I am not in the slightest confused, let alone bewildered by any of this and I do not need Trump to think for me or anyone else for that matter.

    You are the one to bring up Obama and Biden doing as much as Trump to get these other countries what they agreed upon. How about you back up that statement with some proof?

    What I find amusing is how you keep trying to tie me into totally falling at the feet of Donald Trump, which is far from the truth. I have said many times his mouth was his biggest problem. Twice in a row now, I have been forced to pick the best of the worst for a President. Won one and lost one. And I will never apologize for voting against Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden, and I would do it over again.

    Hillary Clinton is not even on the radar as an acceptable candidate for anything down to dog catcher and Joe Biden is no longer thinking wise (Goggle friendly) with us. He is simply a puppet who is having his strings pulled and is totally unfit for the job.

    So I will await your explanation on how Obama and Biden stuck a pin in the rear of those nations that were not keeping up their obligations to NATO as Trump did. Funny but NATO's head man didn't mention them. However he was grateful to Trump

    NATO "dues" are what members pay into the common fund which amounts to about 0.3% of total defense expenditures.

    Once they are pledged Water Boy, they are due. And that is what I said. Do you not understand what I said. I did not say they were dues. Learn the difference.

    But in reality they are a part of the Dues Structure when they become a part of the agreed funding practice. There are many ways of establishing a dues structure. I have been a member of an industy organization that structured their dues by the number of units sold, or dollars of sales, to try and spread the cost of the organization's trade related business based on who was getting the most benefit.

    And if you can get your heard wrapped around it, or not, doesn't matter Water Boy, but once the cost of membership is set based on whatever criteria, it technically is a dues structure and it doesn't really matter whether it is a handful of nations or an organization with 1000 members.

    As I understand it NATO has a dues structure period. Then they have an agreed on contribution based on 2% of their nation's GDP. Tell us how that is technically not dues. if you can.

    And what does it have to do with if or not the funds leave their borders, if they are required to up that amount and use it as a condition of membership.

    Bottom line is this Leftau, NATO recognizes Trump's explaining the facts of life to them has Helped NATO when your assessment of the facts were that he was trying to do harm to NATO. At least the Nato leader who expressed gratitude for what Trump did is not eaten up by hate as you are.

    Perhaps it is high time our country has a few more leaders who can intelligently assert themselves and get results, instead of leaders like Wimpy Joe who has to have his strings pulled and who has to have help in walking back his silly statements.

    Water Boy, you are the one being intentionally ignorant. I am taking into account all of the requirements for NATO membership. You want to pick and choose. While I say all requirements for membership are in fact dues, you want to leave out a major expenditure that is rquired, and it has nothing to do with the money not leaving your shores. If those fees are only partially paid, you are in arrears and need to catch up. I have belonged to a good number of membership only organizations and I was never allowed to pick and choose only a portion of what was required of me to be a member in good standing.

    All you have done is come in sling a little mud and make an accusation or two. You have made no progress in recognizing what a complete dues structure is.

    Come on Leftau show us what part of a set of financial requirements or obligations for continuing as a member in good standing is not a part of the dues structure. If not, what is it? What part of the fact that financial requirements may be increased or decreased by a vote of the membership don't you understand.

    Your lack of understanding is very telling on your education, which does not stop with hanging that piece of paper on your wall. It's what is between your ears that counts.

  • It must be that since it was Trump that invented this "connection" between so-called dues and being "in arrears," you seem desperately anxious to defend his misconception.

    One more time, slowly....

    NATO members pay annually into its Common fund. No country is "in arrears."

    NATO countries commit certain of their military units to be included as part of their contribution to NATO defense plans. They continue to fund their own military. No country is "in arrears."

    Nations also agree to internal, national defense budgeting that includes the goal of 2% of GDP by 2024. This provides for a robust defense posture to include strategic reserves. Some nations meet the 2% target and have not yet done so.

    Those that exceed the 2% target do not pay anything more to offset nations that do not. This "arrears" concept is Trump's "invention" but it is incorrect and doesn't. No nation is " in arrears."

    There is no need for you to keep trying to defend the misconception.

And it appears to me from the article NATO was grateful for Trump snapping the slack out of a few countries.

  • "...if you are not paid up..."

    One last time, how can any nation be "not paid up" if the 2% target is not effective until 2024? Just because Trump misunderstood this, doesn't mean you have to.

    NATO nations started "paying up" in 2014. From then to 2021 the NATO average (defense spending divided by GDP) increased by about 27%. The increase during the Trump administration was about10.1% and in the past year the average has increased by about 11%, and is now up to about 1.81%. Nations were picking up slack anyhow.

    Just a couple of more things...

    Of course you're defending Trump.

    If you're seeking a personification of self-righteousness, try looking in a mirror.

    Never claimed to "know it all" but I did spend the better part of 4 years in Germany working on NATO construction and funding issues.

    Please explain what, where and how I was "misrepresenting what really happened."

    Water Boy, have you been able to figure out what constitutes a Dues Structure in an Organization, Alliance, Whatever? Or, are you still struggling with your misconceptions?

    Further, in the real world, when you are behind on your payments, whatever it is, just because you are given time to catch up doesn't mean you are still not behind. Try it with your home payments, your, rent, your car payments, the gas or electric bill. If you are behind you are behind. Just because the electric company has given you a second chance before you find yourself freezing or sweating in the dark, doesn't mean you are not behind. Same thing applies with dues, and if you are not paying, someone else is paying to make it possible to keep your lights on. So in the real world your whole BS treatsie about Trump being wrong is a lie.

    And before you get off on a tear that I am all things Trump. You are far from on target. And for the record, I would still vote against Hillary Clinton for what she is and Joe Biden for his competence level, which could happen to any of us at this time of life.

    So far as your time spent in Germany, if you learned little to nothing, what would that have to do with anything?

    As a parting thought, I am with the Gentleman from NATO, thank you Donald Trump for standing on your hind legs and letting them know where the Big Bear defecates in the woods. I am not against NATO, but who needs NATO most, the United States of America or our smaller partners on the front lines of trouble? That one should be an easy one for you Water Boy.

    It further was decided in 2014 they would all meet this committment within a 10 year framework with the deadline being 2024. It is obvious we are 80% into meeting that committment and we have countries who are less than 50% in meeting their goal with less than 20% of the time left to do so. I think a reasonable assumption would be that they are at the very best, behind in meeting their committment. What do you think is reasonable Water Boy?

    What country is behind in its payments?

  • "...behind in meeting their commitment..."

    Whether you consider them to be behind is irrelevant. They are in fact, not behind, simply as it is not yet 2024.

    Since that's the case, all of the 6 quotes (Mar 30, 2022, at 12:18 PM) from Trump are not true, as you now know.

    It's very simple if you had reasonable comprehension

    Water Boy. I would consider any Country who has not yet reached 80% of their commitment to spend 2% of their GDP on defense to be behind what is expected of them. Meaning they are not going to be able to help properly defend themselves as well as another nation in need.

    Now a question for you big boy. How do you figure if they are on schedule to meeting their committment?

    I will await your answer Water Boy.

    Carry that Democratic water, Water Boy. Meantime I will fill you in with a few facts.

    You and the rest of the skunks in your party have been on Trump's case since the day in Nov of 2016 when he defeated Hillary Clinton. You wasted 4 years of investigating and impeaching all for nothing. You lost every round.

    When are you going to grow up and get over it?

    -- Posted by Have_Wheels_Will_Travel on Thu, Mar 31, 2022, at 1:57 PM
  • There is no schedule required nor any "build-up. The target is to be at 2% by 2024. That is what you and Trump have never figured out.

  • "Meantime I will fill you in with a few facts."

    Those are not facts. I was over Clinton losing the day after the election. Trump was in fact impeached twice and was voted guilty twice by a bi-partisan group of Senators. It is also a fact that their numbers did not reach the level required for removal (which is probably regretted now by numerous of them.)

    As long as republicans have not recognized the damage Trump in the White House would cause, there's nothing to get over.

    Ok Water Boy, it appears you are saying that it was not NATO's intention for the various member counties to start arming themselves and be at a minimum of 2% GDP in 10 years. Further that you are in compliance if you do not spend a penny for defense until 2014 so long as you shell out 2% of GDP in 9 years and 364 days.

    It is my contention that even you are not that damed less smart (Goggle Approved)!

  • One more time, even more slowly....

    "NATO members pay annually into its Common fund. No country is "in arrears."

    "NATO countries commit certain of their military units to be included as part of their contribution to NATO defense plans. They continue to fund their own military. No country is "in arrears."

    The individual member nations pay for their own military units that are committed to NATO contingencies. The funds that pay for those NATO committed are part of the 2%.

    You saying they "...are in compliance if you do not spend a penny for defense until 2014..." is just one more thing you and Trump fail to understand.

    As part of being a NATO member, those nations maintain their military forces and fund them.

    "The individual member nations pay for their own military units that are committed to NATO contingencies. The funds that pay for those NATO committed are part of the 2%."

    So when they are not meeting their 2% they are not meeting their committment.

    Yes I know they have until 2024 to meet the 2%. However some nations are 80% into the committment timewise and less than 50% into the money committment.

    In the spirit of the agreement, are they in compliance Water Boy. Try to forget Trump was ever involved when you answer the question. If you can or will?

    -- Posted by Have_Wheels_Will_Travel on Thu, Mar 31, 2022, at 3:27 PM
  • Their commitment is for the funding, establishment and maintenance of specified military units, not for a given dollar amount.

    If their NATO committed forces remain combat ready and meet the 2024 target, then they're in compliance.

    Water Boy, you have already stated their goal is 2% of their GDP.

    -- Posted by Have_Wheels_Will_Travel on Thu, Mar 31, 2022, at 5:18 PM
  • "...their goal is 2% of their GDP."

    It is good that you now realize that it's always been only a target set for 2024.

    And the funding for a member nations armed forces committed to NATO make up all or part of that 2%. Nations can also maintain forces that are not committed to NATO but the costs of those forces also count toward the 2% goal.

    So the criteria for continued membership is to pay into the common fund (ref your link), maintain NATO committed combat ready units, and reach the 2% target by 2024.

    The basic purpose of the 2% target is to promote and advance force modernization, and it has worked. For example Germany is planning to buy F -35's.

    There is no requirement to "pay back" NATO or any other country for years of being below 2%.. Therefore this claim by Trump is totally wrong...

    “…many countries [in NATO] owe us a tremendous amount of money for many years back, where they’re delinquent…”

But anyway, wife and I decided to tour what amounts to City Hall. We were confronted by a Gentleman who inquired as to what we thought we were doing in wandering around by ourselves. I explained the name and the possible family connection and we wanted to see their city hall. He explained to me that was not permitted and we had to have guidance. But he was the Burgermeister and had a few minutes so he would give us a tour. And he did along with some history of his city!

    Sorry that you’ve a few bad days…

    It’s easy to detect because when you’ve “lost” you launch into various diversions and distractions, throw petty insults, make childish claims, etc.

    Trump’s misconceptions and lies have been exposed, but at least you have a clearer picture on how NATO operates, even though it meant you had to concede that Trump was wrong.

    As for Secretary-General Stoltenberg “praising” Trump, you think maybe that he and other world leaders realize that the way to get around Trump’s “road blocks” is to toss him a few compliments to quiet him.

    By the way, you and the rest of the SO conservatives have been on Biden’s case since the day in November 2020 when he thrashed Trump.

    When are you going to grow up and get over it?

    "Donald Trump has sensationally asked Vladimir Putin to help him dig up dirt on President Joe Biden and his family. Trump's shocking request to the Russian president comes less than one month after he spoke at a Republican fundraiser in New Orleans and suggested putting Chinese flags on US fighter jets and sending them to "bomb the [expletive] out of Russia," adding, "And then we say, China did it, we didn’t do it, China did it, and then they start fighting with each other and we sit back and watch." In an interview on Just The News that aired on Tuesday, March 29th, Trump can be seen and heard asking Putin to give him any potentially damaging information he has on the reports that suggest that Elena Baturina, the wife of Moscow’s former mayor, gave $3.5 million to a company co-founded by Biden's son, Hunter, now 52, over a decade ago. Biden’s lawyer, however, has insisted that he did not co-found the company that received the $3.5 million, and has denied that the president's family has any stake in it."

    Water Boy, in the issue of America's best interests, would you prefer the dirt on Biden and family be exposed or swept under the rug? You seem to forget the phony report that Hillary Clinton paid for with campaign donations trying to dig up dirt on Trump. Not only that most of the stuff in the report turned out to be false. Didn't stop her and the Democrats from trying to use it though. Or have your forgotten the 4 years of investigations, lies and harrassment that got started with that report, terminating with impeachment fostered by more lies from folks like Adam Schiff from California. All of which the Democrats ended up losing every issue they brought up. And tell us again like you did the other day that Trump was convicted in the impeachment trials they just couldn't come up with enough votes to make it stick.

    "An expanded "Braswellism" is a new treat."

    Water Boy, anything that doesn't fit your far left wing dogma is an "ism" it appears. Nobody is allowed a different opinion or it becomes an "ism"

    As a bit of advice to you is the brand of Communism that is being espoused from your own ranks! Now there is an "ism" that should concern all true Americans.

    My advice to all..., and you especially Water Boy....

    Stand up for your country, screw your party, they are not what matters!

    I am Conservative and I believe in true Conservative values. I further believe Socialism and the resulting follow up Communism is the worst thing that could happen to America. We have seen it come to front and center in many places, not one where it has succeeded! Why do you think we should try it here. Take a look at Venzuela, a rich country before the Commies took over. Now they are eating out of garbage cans. A real success story.... right??

    But the Far Leftwing Democrats think they are smarter, they can make it work. Do you really believe them? How about you Leftau, do you think it will work?

    We had Totalitarian Rule in America with the King that we threw out back about 1776, why do we want a repeat of that?

    Only worse!!!

    First, how do you know if Liz Cheney's believes in true Conservartive values when you wouldn't know what true Conservative Values are if they bit you in the ***.

    Second, I don't seem to anything. I will be sure to let you know if I am condemning anyone Water Boy.

    What I have said, maybe not exact words, I don't take orders from those not my superiors. Now let me explain as simple as I can in words you might understand. That has nothing to do with brilliance. It has to do with Position or Stature in the chain of command, as in an Employer to an Employee. Or maybe as in a General to a Private. If you think it has to do with intelligence and the shoe fits I suppose the only thing I can say is..... wear it.

    But it has never been used in that context by me. And I will continue to refuse to take orders frome those not my Superiors, Bosses or whatever you may want to call those on a level with or lower in the chain of command than I am.

    Is that simple enough Water Boy?

  • More bad news for Trump fans....

    Another Trump hate rally: The threats get worse, and polite America turns away (msn.com)

    “The American news media has collectively decided to ignore Donald Trump's threats of white supremacist violence and sedition. If you believe this will keep you safe from his schemes and machinations, or from what his legions of followers may do, you are greatly mistaken.

    “Apparently, the gatekeepers of the approved public discourse have convinced themselves that they are somehow serving the public interest by ignoring these escalating threats. In reality, these gatekeepers are doing exactly the opposite: They are normalizing American fascism by minimizing its dangers. In a moment when the news media as an institution should sound the alarm even more loudly about the threat to American democracy, safety and security represented by Trumpism and neofascism a choice has been made to mock or whitewash the imminent danger.

    “One does not ignore an arsonist in the hope that he will stop burning down buildings; the same logic should apply to political arsonists as well.

    “Did you know that last Saturday Donald Trump held a political hate rally in Selma, North Carolina? If you follow the mainstream news media, the answer is likely no. Here is what you missed. As he has done repeatedly, Donald Trump summoned up the demons of Jim Crow and the Confederacy. He may try to hide his hatred and bigotry by sharing a stage with Black and brown people, and he may disingenuously employ the language of the civil rights movement, but Donald Trump is at his core a white supremacist and racial authoritarian.

    “Donald Trump remains the de facto leader of the Republican Party. He won almost 75 million votes in 2020 — significantly more than in 2016 — because Republican voters enthusiastically agree with him and what he represents. His values are their values. Trumpism and neofascism more generally are both a symptom and a cause of an American political culture and society that is deeply sick with multiple ailments: racism and misogyny, cruelty and greed, anti-LGBTQ bigotry, religious fundamentalism, anti-intellectualism, an obsession with violence and other antisocial and anti-human values.”

    Leftau what I see here is some more of your half baked attempts to discredit Trump. Hate is definitely more powerful than love.

    What is it with all of the paragraphs started with quotation marks and left open? Isn't it customary when you open with quotation marks that you close the thought with quotation marks?

    Without going to look, is this all from msn? If so why any quotation marks?

    As a bit of information for you Water Boy, Trumps is not the issue or the problem. The problem is sitting in the Oval Office and it is definitely a serious issue.

    You seem to work on the assumption that the only way to defend the incompetence in Washington is to try and call attention to a man who is out of office and is not the issue at all.

    While I, and others like me, will share in the results of this current mess in Washington and it's failures, I refuse to be blamed for being it's cause. I did not vote for Joe Biden because it was obvious he was not qualified to be President and would vote against him again.

    -- Posted by Have_Wheels_Will_Travel on Wed, Apr 13, 2022, at 5:37 PM
  • A series of quoted paragraphs needs only a quote mark a the start of each paragraph and the end of the last. Aren't you glad that you get to learn new things so frequently.

    The only thing you could be blamed for is voting for Trump twice, since it was obvious he was not qualified to be president, especially after his first term.

    You're clearly victim of the "fool me twice, shame on me" saying.

    As so many times before, the "hatred" is only in your mind. Continuing to post the truth about him is just my part to ensure he never gets near the White House again.

    "Quotation mark

    Punctuation Mark

    Quotation marks are punctuation marks used in pairs in various writing systems to set off direct speech, a quotation, or a phrase. The pair consists of an opening quotation mark and a closing quotation mark, which may or may not be the same character."

    Wikipedia

    So sayeth Wikipedia

    "Use of Quotation Marks (“ “)

    By Bizhan Romani

    January 24, 2020

    Quotation marks, most commonly known as inverted commas, quotes, quote marks, or speech marks, are punctuation marks that are always used in pairs, especially when a direct speech has to be presented, or a quotation has to be mentioned, or a phrase needs to be used."

    -- Posted by Have_Wheels_Will_Travel on Wed, Apr 13, 2022, at 9:36 PM
  • The Nuns were right about quotes being used in pairs. In my quotation the opening mark preceded "The American..." and the closing quotation mark followed "...anti-human values." That's the pair setting apart and identifying the entire quotation.

    Perhaps you were absent on the day they added the rule that intermediate paragraphs require only the initial mark before the first word in each. That identifies it as a continuous quotation from the same source.

    No Water Boy, Trump was not incompetent, you have him mistaken with Biden.

    Loud and Obnoxious a lot of the time, which seems to originate a lot in Northern Cities, yes but incompetent not a chance. Looking at Biden's popularity I think you can see who the public thinks is incompetent.

    I and I think most were better off under Trump than they are under Biden. Our buying power is eroding at a pace not seen in 40 years, tell me that makes us better off than we were under Trump. Our shelves are empty and covid is not the only fault there either.

    The little dictatorship Biden tried to establish certainly is against my principles and desires for a free country.

    Leftau you cannot deny we were better off with no oil dependency and a closed Southern border. Two wins we had going for us and Biden wiped them out within a week of being "elevated to a pedestal"

  • Mr. Braswell,

    "Same thing goes for CRT and the sex Ed bills." and "...then why all the protests against banning it?"

    Since it's not being taught, "banning it" is only a politically motivated contribution to the republican culture war.

    In order to "ban something," they first have to invent that issue, then claim it's being taught to their children.

    You probably recall your "great question lady" and what she claimed CRT was.

    She thought that schools were “…teaching black kids through CRT that they will never be successful in this country based on the color of their skin.”

    Surely even you don’t believe that to be true.

    Shades of Jimmy Carter.

    Wait until the rules come out that tell you when and if you can give an employee a pay increase. You had to get creative to be able to treat employees needs for pay increases. You see Leftau, I was signing the fronts of paychecks in those days and I definitely remember the hard times inflation caused. Cannot remember the exact year but things were so bad, I took no salary for the year, living off savings and the company still lost 25 grand. Had it not been for some good years and planning I would have perished.

    The Trump years were bonus years compared to that Leftau and if you had been doing anything but drawing a paycheck yourself during those times of the Carter inflation, you would have a better understanding of it. Business's paying 18% to 20% interest to borrow operating capital.

    Leftau when it comes to teaching in schools, my kids went to a parochial school through high school, so I was not familiar with the public schools. However I put two daughters through college and I can tell you thought control was on the agenda with some professors at that level. Fortunately my daughters followed my advice on their being introduced to college. That was get an education and retain your common sense. And they listened.

    And there is too much smoke about the CRT and the multi gender BS being taught in our schools not to have it happening. And for your information people on the Conservative side of civilization have every much a right to have a say in their children's education as Leftists do. Kapeesh?

    Adolph Hitler used the schools to brain wash children and turn them against their parents.

    It is every American's responsibility to see that does not happen in our Country.

    And Letau, if or not you want to accept it, it is the responsibility of parents to know what is being taught their children. The schools have one legitmate function and that is to teach our children the basics they need to deal with living and being able to fend for themselves.

    Brain washing and indocrination has no place in our school system.

  • Just one more warning regarding “Trumpism” today…

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/how-donald-trump-reminds-us-of-an-important-go...

    “Good Friday is a day when Christians remember Jesus Christ’s death on the cross — his execution upon an instrument of state torture.

    “It is also a powerful reminder of how dangerous it is for society when authoritarian politicians and corrupt religious leaders conspire for power and dominion.

    “Good Friday’s warning resonates deeply even now, nearly 2,000 years after Jesus’ death. That’s because the relationship between the religious authorities of Christ’s time and the brutal Roman governor who ordered his execution, Pontius Pilate, is little different from the Christian nationalist bond that exists between today’s Republican Party and conservative American Christianity.

    “Regional Roman dictators like Pilate relied on local religious elites to help them build power by keeping order within their jurisdictions. In exchange, the religious leaders were allowed to keep power and status. Everybody benefitted — except for critics like Jesus, the poor, and the oppressed.

    “Two millennia later, modern Republican politicians like Donald Trump and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., use conservative evangelical and Roman Catholic leaders in a similar fashion, repeatedly citing their faith, sharing their national spotlight and promising businesses the “religious freedom” to practice harmful discrimination.

    “Eager to bask in the political glory, far too many pastors and priests lap it up, indoctrinating their followers with the ideology of Christian nationalism: the false ideas that America is a Christian nation, and that there is no difference between one’s conservative Christian identity and one’s national identity.”

    Also…

    “Jesus didn’t fall for it, but the MAGA movement’s politicians and pastors most certainly have.”

    Leftau not sure I know where that notion comes from.

    I have always been of the opinion from what I read of history and been taught, is that America was founded on Judeo-Christian principles and was a melting pot of people from many walks of life. Plus the fact that we have the right to worship as we please.

    I believe trying to drag the Crucifiction of Jesus Christ into the idea that the Leftists/Liberals of America America are so righteous is a travisity in itself. Don't forget, yours is the party of abortion and baby killing.

  • Trump, Allies 'Inarguably Committed' Crimes With Jan. 6 'Coup': Kirschner

    BY JASON LEMON ON 4/16/22 AT 5:11 PM EDT

    “Former U.S. Army prosecutor Glenn Kirschner contended on Saturday that former President Donald Trump and his allies "inarguably committed" crimes in what he described as their effort to carry out a "coup" by attempting to overturn President Joe Biden's election win.

    “Trump and a number of his allies have openly discussed their efforts to overturn the 2020 election results, claiming that Biden won due to widespread voter fraud. This conspiracy theory has been discredited and debunked by Republican and Democratic election officials and experts. No evidence has come to light corroborating the allegations.

    “Kirschner, who now works as a legal analyst for MSNBC and NBC News, has previously called for the Justice Department to indict Trump in connection to his efforts to overturn the election, as well as for inciting the January 6, 2021 attack against the U.S. Capitol. Hundreds of the former president's supporters attacked the federal legislative branch of government that day in an apparent effort to disrupt the formal certification of Biden's win. The assault took place directly after Trump told them to walk to the Capitol and "fight like hell" after months of spreading misinformation about the election results.”

    Water Boy, it's a little tough to try and pinpoint your problem where Trump is concerned.

    I think it oscillates somewhere between Deep Hatred and Obsession.

    Where I think your real problem lies is with the Democratic Party. If they could simply nominate someone to run for President who was competent to be President. They nominate Hillary Clinton who is, if not the dirtiest person they could find, she was next to it, then they decide to nominate Biden for likeablility and they thought he could win, governing had nothing to do with it.

    You may take this any way you like and it has nothing to do with any "ism" you may try to interject into the mix.

    Personalities aside, when it came to governing, in the last two elections you Democrats left people no choice. However Biden won had nothing to do with his ability to be President. Trump had made enemies and so the Democrats run good old likeable Joe, a man that stumbled through the campaign from not being able to know the difference between his wife and his sister and numerous other ridiculous scenarioes Now he is President in name only, proof how he was treated just recently in the photo ops when he was wandering around like a lost soul.

    You got your way Water Boy, he is in title only President, the country is being run by non-elected individuals. And look at his favorability ratings. Even Democrats privately acknowledge the mistake that sits in the oval office. How do you think history will be written on this non funny joke?

    To add to the problem, follow the chain of command, we have Hyena Harris and then Fancy Nancy to fall back on. Just how wonderful is that?

    What has Biden accomplished so far, other than to pull off the biggest racial and gender issue in the history of the country by stating and then following through with nominating a Supreme Court Justice based on Sex and Color. Nominating the best was secondary. One has to only go back a short time in history to see how contradictory this is for the Democratic Party and you see how Clarence Thomas was treated during his hearings.. Oh I forgot he was not a Democratic pick.

    What if it isn't a threat but a promise?

    Who do you think the Democrats will pick to run against him, just because they are likeable? Old Slow Joe doesn't appear to be all that likeable this time around from the poll ratings he is carrying.

    Naybe they will pick Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck! They are pretty likeable country wide and ulitmately carry about the same amount of competence as Slow Joe to do the job if elected.

    Water Boy, you are a slow learner. How many times do I have to tell you to not try to put words in my mouth or read into something, that which I did not say. How long will it take for you to learn that you are not smart enough to get away with it.

    Nowhere did I comment on Trump's nomination or even running for the nomination other than to correct your errors.

    Nowhere in there did I say I supported or discouraged his sticking his foot in. Nowhere did I say he was the best candidate for the 2024 nomination. I will wait to see who's name is in the running if I comment at all.

    Am I the only one who can see Leftau's attempt to put words in my mouth or maybe I should say at my fingertips.

    You may put this in your pipe and smoke it though Water Boy.... If the Democrats run Hillary Clinton or Joe Biden, it is a cinch I will support whomever the Republicans nominate as I would never vote for Hillary Clinton because she is corrupt and Joe Biden, I cannot vote for a person who's mental ability is reduced to the level his is. This is the Precidency of the United States not a popularity contest.

    Now let's see what you try to read into that, that I never said. Hopefully you are starting to wise up a little bit. County on it, I am going to call you out on it, every time you try putting words in my mouth or lie about what I said.

    My answer would be no not the best possible candidate the Republicans have to offer, but head and shoulders above Hillary Clinton and/or Joe Biden. I look at the good of our country first and party second.

    Tour self indictment in your statement shows where your loyalty laws, party first, nation second.

    In 2016 the Republicans had 14 candidates going for the nomination. Out of those 14, I would have placed all of them over Hillary Clinton as being better for our country.

    Trump's problem.was his mouth, but he was best suited for the job in 2016 and 2020.

    “The 2021–2022 inflation surge is the higher-than-average economic inflation throughout much of the world that began in early 2021. It has been attributed to the 2021 global supply chain crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, and unexpected demands for certain goods.”

    “Inflation has been rising since November 2020, largely due to the reopening of the economy – which led to greater consumer demand, plus supply chain constraints. In June and again in July, the consumer price index or CPI rose by 5.3% on a year-over-year basis, marking the largest such increase since July 2008. You would have to go back to February 1991 to find a larger increase. Despite the Fed suggesting this round of inflation will be transitory, some experts believe otherwise. While we cannot know with certainty how high inflation will rise or how long it will persist, there are a few clues we can turn to. Perhaps the most telling is the producer price index or PPI.

    The producer price index measures the change in prices for goods and services at the producer level. When a company has to pay more to produce their products, they will often pass these higher costs onto the consumer. Price changes at the consumer level are reflected in the consumer price index. The following graph shows the year-over-year percentage change in PPI and CPI from November 2010 through July 2021. In July 2021, prices at the producer level (PPI) rose 7.7% year-over-year while consumer prices (CPI) rose 5.3%. At the far right of the chart, notice how PPI (black line) has been rising faster than CPI (blue line) since January, suggesting higher prices at the consumer level are inevitable. Why has PPI spiked? It’s about supply and demand.”

    What were Donald Trump’s mistakes as the United States of America's president?

    Randy Weir, Updated Dec 15

    “1. The trade war. It killed 300,000 manufacturing jobs before the pandemic as American businesses closed or moved overseas because of his tariffs. It also bankrupted American farmers as Russia supplanted the US as the top importer of soy into China. The tariffs and the difficulty they created in importing crucial components is also part of the reason we have shortages and inflation now.

    “2. His tax bill. It took him almost a year to get his own party to pass this one, and it did not have a good effect. Before the tax bill going back to Obama’s recovery act, the Dow was growing at an average of over 16% annually and unemployment dropped by an average of .75% annually. In the two years after the bill was signed, the Dow grew a total of 13% (less than 6% annually) and unemployment dropped a total of only .53%.

    “3. Dismantling our pandemic response team. Trump immediately made cuts to the agencies responsible for dealing with a viral outbreak, despite being told that such an outbreak was the number one threat to our national security. He also removed key people from key positions and saw others resign from key positions and left those posts vacant.

    “4. The wall. How ridiculous was this? He wasted billions, distracted the conversation from the actual causes of illegal immigration and from sensible measures to control the border, and he shut down the government for the longest period of time in history because his own party wouldn’t fund it. He diverted money from national defense and military families to build tiny portions of the wall, many of which have already fallen to disrepair. And truth be told this campaign is probably what cost his own party the House in 2018 as Democrats won every Congressional district on the southern border but one—and that one was won by a Republican who campaigned on opposing the wall.

    “5. Ignoring Covid. Trump spent 23 of the first 69 days of 2020 on vacation, all the while downplaying the threat of the virus. His inaction made it impossible for us to have a coordinated national response that could have helped contain the virus. On top of that, he politicized the virus by attacking anyone who criticized his lack of action. Then he doubled down on that mistake and went after anyone who took common sense action to slow the spread.

    “6. Abusing his office for personal gain. All Trump had to do to be a successful President was to hire competent people and to let them do their jobs. Instead he filled posts with campaign donors, his unqualified children, and sycophants who wanted to destroy the agencies they were in charge of. For Trump “running the country like a business” meant manipulating the system so he turned a profit while his investors and customers lost everything. And we were the investors and the customers this time. With the nonstop corruption of his administration, he opened himself up to investigations, impeachments, and possible criminal charges after he left office, and he guaranteed he would lose his re-election bid, and that he’d take his party down with him.

    “7. Separating children from their parents and then losing track of them.

    “8. Undermining confidence in the electoral system while attempting to stage a slow coup d’etat,”

    Water Boy, inflation was not soring during Trump's administration. As much as you would like to make it so, it rests on the shoulders of your candidate for the job of being President. The guy who could cure Covid, the guy who stated that with a death rate like we had in 2020, the President should resign. However in 2021 under your Boy's term the death rate was higher, yet he has not resigned.

    And the prime reason for inflation in this country is the fact that spending money you do not have and creating more out f thin air/paper is the real reason. Every dollar in your pocket became worth less as more money was created. I was once in Dubrovnik Yugoslavia, when the rate just over 1000% and the locals would run out and put their paychecks into groceries and other staples that was needed or they could buy less of them tomorrow.

    Nice try Lefty but Joseph Biden is President not Donald Trump. He had all of the answers, he said so, and you said so. You own the problem, we just have to live with it.

  • As usual your conclusions are based on your confusion and grounded only in right wing rants and talking points.

    In 2017, the Trump administration created, by borrowing, a few trillion dollars, out of thin air for their giveaway to the top 5%. Clearly, this is not how inflation comes into play. Trump increased the deficit by trillions, but it was in itself, not inflationary.

    Go back a few paragraphs and you'll find accurate information.

  • Also to clear up more of your "mixfusion" (Thanks Rick S.)...

    In 2020 the death rate was driven by the administration's inability to manage various mitigating measures. Covid-19 denial contributed directly to killing people.

    In 2021, the pandemic became one of the unvaccinated. Shots were available to all, and getting vaccinated was strongly pushed by the administration.

    That's the difference. Need more facts?

    The Water Boy likes to accuse everybody of being confused, but he apparently thinks Trump is still President.

    Inflation was next to nothing under Trump and in comes Biden, now it is highest in 40 years I have read somewhere and The Water Boy is trying to blame Trump for it, although Biden has been President for ! year and a day short of 3 months.

    When do you start crediting Biding for his mistakes and start rememebering Trump is no longer President.

    Biden is President Leftau and made a ton of mistakes, and you say there is plenty more just like him in the Democratic Party.

    You made the charge Water Boy. I invite you to explain what you are talking about. I don't make up stories. I just point out made up stories.

    Let's start with the pandemic of the unvacinated story you made up out of thin air. There is no such thing. Vacinated folks were getting the newer strains of the virus as well as were unvaccinated folks.

    I can appreciate people's concern for a new rapidly developed vaccine. I had them myself but took the shots anyway. But I see no way I have a right to demand of others what they do with their bodies. That is Democratic territory as they appear to like to dictate to people what they can and cannot do.

    I think I understand spending and increasing or decreasing overhead as well as you do Water Boy, I spent 37 years developing and operating a successful business before one of my children and spouse operated it another 18 years before selling it three years ago.

    Now that we have that out of the way, let's take taxes, there have been cases where decreasing the rate actually increase the amount of taxes collected if it will induce a surge in new business. Sometimes that works and sometimes it does not.

    So now would you explain why Biden would increase spending without a tax increase. Spemding that did little to increase the chances of an increase in revenue. Now he wants to increase taxes to pay for his vote buying, will kill business and follow that with a loss of jobs creating a need toprint some more money to cover the outgo, along with the borrowing and increasing the national debt.

    The Democrat answer is always trying to spend our way out of a hole and into prosperity. Let me tell you it won't work with business unless the spending increases business and therefore income. Nor will borrowining your way out of debt be successful.

  • Since you brought up fables….

    Fable # 1 --- Vaccinated folks were getting the newer strains of the virus as well as were unvaccinated folks.”

    That is not the case. The unvaccinated represent well over 80% of the cases, as well as close to almost all of the deaths. Vaccinated folks do get some of the newer strains, but the disease is milder and seldom requires hospitalization.

    It’s a pandemic that’s killed about a million Americans. What others “… do with their bodies…” remains their right, but they do not have a right to spread disease throughout communities and cities. They can be tested, remain isolated, and utilize available mitigation practices. Protecting the general population through public health restrictions is not “dictating” to people.

    Fable # 2 --- “…decreasing the rate actually increase the amount of taxes collected…”

    It didn’t work for Trump and it didn’t work for Bush. Both tried “vote buying” tax cuts with the promise of greater tax income. It didn’t, rather it simply ballooned the deficit, ending up with more borrowing.

    Fable # 3 --- “…Biden would increase spending without a tax increase.”

    A large part of the spending was to assist individuals and small business to make it through the Covid pandemic. Tax increases for those with incomes over $400,000 is included in the recovery plan.

    Fable # 4 --- “…letting people keep what they earn is giving them nothing.”

    You might of ignored Trump when he announced at Mar a Lago, “I just made you all a lot richer.” The dollars that made them and himself “richer” were intended to fund portions of government activities, we had to borrow more money to pay for the spending he refused to cut.

    Fable # 5 --- “…the prime reason for inflation in this country is [the fact that] spending money you do not have…”

    Were that true, Trump would have caused massive inflation following his 2017 giveaway. In actuality, (and someone with 37 years of successful business experience should already know this) massive imbalances between supply and demand cause inflationary price increases. The most obvious, recent example is the major reduction in demand for oil during the pandemic, followed by a major increase in demand, which the supply could not satisfy.

    Any more of your fables that need to be refuted?

    "massive imbalances between supply and demand cause inflationary price increases."

    Imbalances in many cases because workers are sitting on their brains drawing unemployment while jobs go begging.

    More BS...

    "Were that true, Trump would have caused massive inflation following his 2017 giveaway."

    But it did not. Reason being it allowed the job makers to grow their businesses and hire people who were not permitted to sit on their brains and draw unemployment while jobs were available.

    Your way of thinking and mine Leftau is the difference between Capitalism and Communism.

    Capitalism grows a country. Communism enslaves a country.

    Two examples USA - Russia.

    Mybe these definitions from the internet will give you a little more help Water Boy!

    cap·i·tal·ism

    [ˈkapədlˌizəm]

    NOUN

    an economic and political system in which a country's trade and industry are controlled by private owners for profit, rather than by the state:

    ***********************************

    com·mu·nism

    [ˈkämyəˌnizəm]

    NOUN

    a political theory derived from Karl Marx, advocating class war and leading to a society in which all property is publicly owned and each person works and is paid according to their abilities and needs. See also Marxism.〔The most familiar form of communism is that established by the Bolsheviks after the Russian Revolution of 1917, and it has generally been understood in terms of the system practiced by the former Soviet Union and its allies in eastern Europe, in China since 1949, and in some developing countries such as Cuba, Vietnam, and North Korea. Communism embraced a revolutionary ideology in which the state would wither away after the overthrow of the capitalist system. In practice, however, the state grew to control all aspects of communist society. Communism in eastern Europe collapsed in the late 1980s and early 1990s against a background of failure to meet people's economic expectations, a shift to more democracy in political life, and increasing nationalism such as that which led to the breakup of the Soviet Union.〕

And yes I know there were some crazies in the crowd that got out of hand as there generally is in nearly every crowd, but it is not an indictment for those who were peacefully assembled.

    No Water Boy, it is putting party first to get in the Oval Office when the qualifications for running the country are not there as has been show this past 1 year and 3 months as of today.

    Your reasoning wouldn't past an 8th grade civics test.

    What it really was is this.

    The democrats finally after 4 years of investigating and litigating as in impeachments were able to get even with Donald Trump for defeating Hillary Clinton.

    The Presidential Election is not a popularity contest. It is putting your best suited man/woman on the ticket to run the business of the people of this country.

    The Democrats failed woefully in that responsibility, they nominated a man who could win on popularity and pity and look at the mess we have now.

    Had the Democrats put the amount of time and money into bettering this country instead of wasting it on going after Trump from the day after the November 2016 election this country would be way better off.

    So in spite of being the worst, Trump was the nominee. Strange that this doesn't bother you.

    Anybody hear anyone say that, except The Water Boy of Course?

    I just mention a guy I happen to like.

    And Trump was a better pick than either Hillary aka Broom Hilda Clinton and Joe Biden. I would not vote for Hillary Clinton if Minnie Mouse was running and while I have no personal feelings towards Joe Biden it was obvious way before voting day that he was no longer mentally a part of the thinking Americans. All of the mistakes he has made while governing were not his fault, they were the fault of those who put him on the ballot and those who voted for him. The man belongs in Memory Care.

    Joe Biden does have one fault that is no one eles's problem but his own. and that is that crooked son of his who he has personally profited from. You know, the 10% for the big guy thing.

    It is not a personal bias. It is an opinion formed from observing her actions through the Clinton term of office and the way she handled our security during the Obama years. The woman is morally bankrupt. Trump was a much better President than Hillary Clinton would have ever been. America was fortunate to have never had to experience a Hillary Clinton Presidency.

    And I differ with you. Educating yourself on who you are voting for or against for public office is not creating a personal bias.

    Now here is something for you to work on Water Boy....

    https://capitalhillnews.com/leftists-suffer-meltdown-over-end-of-airline-mask-ma...

    An excerpt....

    Massachusetts Democratic State Rep. "Lindsay Sabadosa tweeted her indignation that “courts are effectively taking away power from the federal government.”"

    Yes "Sweetie" something the Constitution doesn’t provide you to begin with.

    Typical Democrat, Power Hungry! Likes to dictate to her subjects!

    Yep Water Boy that's who you're carrying water for. Yes what we were discussing earlier the difference between Capitalists and Communists down the road if allowed to get away with their power grabs.

    We were founded on the principle of Government of the people, by the people and for the people. Maybe not exact wording, but I think even you can get it Water Boy.

    We were NOT founded on the principle of Dictatorial Government by power hungry bureaucrats/Democrats.

  • Mr. VanGennip,

    “And I differ with you.”

    In reality you don’t. Having educated myself, I was fully cognizant of Trump’s failings, flaws and weaknesses prior to the 2016 election. In paying excessive attention to republican “anti-Clinton” propaganda, perhaps you missed Trump’s dishonesty, his Hollywood access tapes, his narcissistic ego, his blatant ignorance of simple facts of government, and his management incompetence. Being a real estate broker and a game show host hardly qualify one for the presidency.

    You can call that “personal bias” if you prefer, but it’s grounded in his demonstrated ineffectiveness and ineptitude. You can also call it “hatred,” but you’re just a wrong about that as you were the first time you invented that claim.

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    “…NOT founded on the principle of Dictatorial Government…”

    More “mixfusion” on your part. What do public health rules to counter a pandemic that’s killed close to a million Americans, have to do with Constitutional protections of individual rights.

    The “meltdown” exhibited by the republicans/conservatives against commonsense public health protocols, procedures and requirements is nothing short of irrational senselessness.

    If those individuals advocating and championing “anti-vaccing” and “anti-masking” were to become the only victims dying of Covid-19, it could be somewhat understandable, but that’s not the case. Illogical resistance to vaccinations, masking and other mitigation methods is what allows the disease to spread, infect others, and result in more contagious variants.

    It is only in the past 6 years that something as obvious as an effective public health measure can “morph” into a political culture war.

    Leftau, unlike you I don't get my information from political parties and their talking points. I listen to the news, I follow what they are doing and saying in person on the news and I form my opinions accordingly. My opinion of Hillary Clinton if properly described would probably get this post removed from print. I treat all candidates the same and try to pick the best of the worst because my opinion of politicians in general would not be printable either.

    "More “mixfusion” on your part. What do public health rules to counter a pandemic that’s killed close to a million Americans, have to do with Constitutional protections of individual rights."

    No confusion on my part whatsoever. And it appears the Judge agrees with me. We have a Constitutional form of government with three branches. Nowhere does it say the Executive Branch has dictatorial powers. Congress makes the laws/rules and the President signs them, while the Judicial Branch decides if they are Constitutional or not.

    Carrying water for the Democrats and coming up with that for the common good BS doesn't get it Water Boy. If a rule or law was needed Congress has had more than adequate time to get involved.

    Power grabs by the Executive Branch should be stopped in their tracks period!

    Biden issues a mandate that everybody must get a shot. You cover for him and said but they have a choice. Which makes it Biden said this or ELSE.

    Our country was formed by kicking a Monarchy out. We have done quite well for ourselves without it and we don't need to reinvent our country into another Dictatorship, they all smell.

    Two of our country's biggest problems were created by the sitting President and his Executive Orders. To be specifice the Southern Border Biden Mess and the Energy Dependence situation we once again find ourselves in.

    Judy Rofe, An Australian who never lost sight of the bigger picture. Mar 7

    "Why is it that everything Donald Trump does seems to be in bad taste?

    "I once thought American politics is too much of a circus; trump’s genius lies in realizing it wasn’t circus enough.

    A thinning, comb-over, an orange fake tan, white panda eyes, ill-fitting suits, long ties held in place with tape and a barrow load of grandiosity and vaingloriousness are just bad taste.

    "trump is bad taste, period. He is the king of bad taste in a country whose diehards are enchanted by bad taste. He is also shallow, insecure and garish.

    "The only thing he’s ever done is work overtime in his quest to seek recognition for his accomplishments. And while his adherents laud him, he’s still a tactless, bloated loudmouth who’s unafraid to offend.

    donald trump IS appalling taste."

  • “Former President Donald Trump again praised "smart" Russian President Vladimir Putin, who launched an invasion of Ukraine on Thursday.

    "Yesterday, I was asked by reporters if I thought President Putin was smart. I said, 'of course he's smart,'" Trump told a crowd at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Orlando, Florida, on Saturday night.

    "The problem is not that Putin is smart, which of course he is smart, but the real problem is that our leaders are dumb," Trump said.

    “Trump has long expressed admiration for Putin, and this week described his war strategy in Ukraine as "wonderful" and "genius."

    Trump again praised 'smart' Putin amid Ukraine invasion and said the US had become a 'stupid country' (yahoo.com)

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    Consider this comparison between Putin’s goals and his results…

    Putin intended for his attack to drive a wedge into and undermine NATO. What happened is President Biden was able to unite and solidify NATO.

    Putin anticipated rolling into Kyiv in 2 or 3 days for his victory parade. His forces didn’t do that and were drive off by the Ukrainian army.

    He wanted to demonstrate the power and effectiveness of the Red Army. The Russians failed to date, and appear to be the military version of the “gang that couldn’t shoot straight.”

    Putin envisioned neighboring NATO countries to be weakened and lose confidence in the alliance. NATO is now stronger and more unified than ever.

    He thought he would “scare” Europe out of NATO. Instead it appears now that Finland and Sweden are poised to join NATO.

    Putin imagined that the Ukrainians would welcome Russians with bouquets of flowers. What they got were Stingers and Javilins.

    He foresaw an easy victory. As of now, his Army’s death toll stands at about 20,000, including about 8 Generals and the loss of a Flagship Cruiser.

    He hoped to expose NATO as a “paper tiger.” US reinforcements streamed into NATO and Germany increased it’s military budget so now it’s greater than Russia’s.

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    Seems we now recognize both Putin and Trump as exceedingly “un-smart.”

    Nothing that Putin wanted has turned out to happen.

    The opposite is true.

    Republican Kevin McCarthy under fire after audio shows he discussed urging Trump to resign

    David Morgan, Fri, April 22, 2022, 9:24 AM

    “WASHINGTON (Reuters) -Congressman Kevin McCarthy, the top Republican in the U.S. House of Representatives, came under fire from some of his fellow party members, after an audio recording showed him saying that then-President Donald Trump should resign over the Jan. 6, 2021, U.S. Capitol riot.

    “But as criticism of the House minority leader mounted on Twitter, the Washington Post reported that he and Trump had spoken by phone and that the Republican former president was not upset about McCarthy's remarks. That could significantly mute the rank-and-file reaction among Trump supporters.

    “The audio -- recorded days after Trump supporters stormed the Capitol, delaying certification of Democrat Joe Biden's 2020 presidential election victory -- depicts a conversation between McCarthy and Representative Liz Cheney, who was ousted from party leadership weeks later over her opposition to Trump.

    “McCarthy told Cheney he planned to call Trump to discuss a mechanism for invoking the 25th Amendment, under which then-Vice President Mike Pence and Cabinet members could have removed the president from office.

    "The only discussion I would have with him is that I think this will pass, and it would be my recommendation you should resign," McCarthy says in the recording, released on cable news channel MSNBC late on Thursday.

    “In another audio tape, McCarthy told Republican lawmakers that Trump had admitted bearing some responsibility for the Jan. 6 attack, according to CNN.

    “McCarthy's office did not respond to requests for comment on Friday. A Trump spokesman also was not immediately available.

    “The first reference to his comments appeared earlier on Thursday in a New York Times article published as part of a forthcoming book by two Times reporters.”

  • Interesting suggestions are being proposed regarding the January 6th Commission upcoming hearings. Numerous republicans spoke out vigorously condemning Trump's involvement in the insurrection.

    So far most have refused to appear in person. However, during the hearings, they could "testify" in absentia by playing visual and audio recordings of their statements.

    Should they choose to appear in person, it would be perjury if they denied saying things like Trump should resign.

  • Not sure what to make of your apparent memory lapses...

    How many times is it necessary to point out there's no hatred, no obsession and certainly no fascination.

    It's simply a matter of repeating the truth about his sad, incompetent performance in the Oval Office. Hopefully, there will be eventual realization by his gullible "base" that they were lied to and are still being lied to.

    Normal republicans/conservatives recognize this, but many, with few notable exceptions, are too cowardly to speak out in public.

    The reality is that republicans/conservatives attempted to overturn a legitimate election through an illegal insurrection.

    The evidence is overwhelming. How many Trump supporters admit to this reality?

    Water Boy reality is a great number of citizens met in DC because they had questions about the 2020 election. And they met peacefully, I saw the TV coverage. A relative few did no. I offer no excuse for that. But a report I heard from someone who immediately left with their group when they heard glass break. There were outside instigators mingled with the crowd.

    I believe as much time and money should be spent investigate the 2020 election process as there was in investigating the Russian Conspiracy Hoax created by lying Democrats.

    Got any problem with that Water Boy. If so state your objections or we can assume you agree.

    You keep trying to lay the Jan 7 mess at the door of all Conservatives which is far from true. The relative few that created the problem are being dealt with.

    -- Posted by Have_Wheels_Will_Travel on Sun, Apr 24, 2022, at 11:46 AM
  • Mr. VanGennip,

    “If so, state your objections…”

    Gladly..

    “…reality is a great number of citizens met in DC because they had questions about the 2020 election.”

    They didn’t meet in DC because they “had questions.” They met because they had been lied to throughout the preceding year, starting with his repetition of the false contention that the only way he could lose was if it were “rigged,” and culminating in November with the big lie, alleging that the election was “stolen” from him.

    They met in DC at the summons of the former president as in “Big protest in D.C. on January 6th,” Mr. Trump tweeted on Dec. 19, just one of several of his tweets promoting the day. “Be there, will be wild!”

    Were it not for him there would have been no January 6th “event” other than the Congressionally mandated nonviolent counting of electoral college votes.

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    “And they met peacefully, I saw the TV coverage.”

    You may have inadvertently tuned in to the Schaefer Fantasy channel. The scene at the Ellipse rally site was relatively “peaceful,” but all that changed at the Capital.

    The US Capital building and grounds were closed to the public on that day, and even if the grounds were open, entry would have been through the Visitor Center. Capital Police had erected crowd control barriers around and outside of the actual structure. Any individual passed through was immediately guilty of criminal trespass.

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    “A relative few did [not.] I offer no excuse for that.”

    Of course you can’t, but you should be able to condemn the instigators. Furthermore, of the 10,000 or so people in DC for this about a quarter committed crimes.

    “On January 6, 2021, a mob of 2,000–2,500 supporters of U.S. President Donald Trump attacked the Capitol Building in Washington, D.C.[a][28][29] They sought to overturn his defeat in the 2020 presidential election by disrupting the joint session of Congress assembled to count electoral votes that would formalize President-elect Joe Biden's victory.” [2021 United States Capitol attack - Wikipedia].

    Of those, about 700 or 800 have been charged and many pled guilty or been convicted. Another 800 have been picked out of videos but are still to be identified. No matter who’s counting, that’s not “a few.”

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    “There were outside instigators mingled with the crowd.”

    Right, according to the FBI, these included, “Three Percenters, The Oath Keepers, Proud Boys, Texas Freedom Force, and other self-described Nazis and white supremacists…”

    The attempts to tie left wing groups to the insurrection are simply bogus.

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    “…in investigating the Russian Conspiracy Hoax…”

    There was no “hoax.” The investigation was conducted under republican leadership during a republican administration.

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    “…trying to lay the Jan 7 mess at the door of all Conservatives...”

    Clearly not all, as there are conservatives on the January 6th Committee.

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    “….relative few that created the problem are being dealt with.”

    Not yet, but when the information and valid evidence the committee has gathered comes out in hearings, they will hopefully be “dealt with.”

    Water Boy. I stated it and you appear to want to refute it, follows is my counter.

    Mr. VanGennip,

    “If so, state your objections…”

    Gladly..

    “…reality is a great number of citizens met in DC because they had questions about the 2020 election.”

    Response: Of course they did!

    Response: Your opinion for what it is worth Water Boy I still contend they had questions, whatever and/or whomever raised those questions.....

    Response: That is obvious, there were and still are many people who thing the election was stolen. Certainly with all of the changes in voting procedure the opportunity was there. I have never voiced an opinion other than to say that I think a thorough investigation should be conducted.

    Clearly not all, as there are conservatives on the January 6th Committee.

    "“….relative few that created the problem are being dealt with.”

    Not yet, but when the information and valid evidence the committee has gathered comes out in hearings, they will hopefully be “dealt with.”"

    Response: I repeat, I believe a thorough investigation into the entire 2020 election should be held that all Americans can be sure their vote was counted. Reassurances by election officials are not good enough. If they were cheating why would they want to admit it? We ****** away 4 years of time and treasure on investigating Russian Collusion and trying to tie it to Trump along with 3 politically instigated impeachments, all of which proved nothing and were political get evens with Trump for beating Hillary. The Democrats failed every single dirty trick they tried to pull to remove Trump before and election was held.

    That all said to counter what you will try making of what I said. I did not, and I still do not approve of what was done by a "Relative Few" in comparison to all Conservatives, or even those present.

    So grow up and quit trying to make a bad situation look even worse than what it was.

    I personally was so involved that I did not even know it was happening until it appeared on TV. Some of us have a life and problems unrelated to government and politics. I try to educate myself on who is running and vote accordingly. And facts are, the opponent will have to be pretty bad before I choose a Hillary Clinton as President, or someone in the mental condition Joe Biden finds himself in. I care a lot more for that and do not believe as you have stated as I read it, that party comes before Country. Would you like your statement on Biden and his qualification reprinted for you. I saved it, it is a classic head in a dark spot opinion what is important when their precious political party is a part of the equation.

    Water Boy, your Democrats used lies 3 times to try and overturn a legal election. They just tried to use a legal means illegally by lying.

    Elections have been overturned before for one reason or another when they thought they were done illegally. protesting an election is not overthrowing a government. Got that?

    So ot os almost a year old, but it was based on what happened on Jan 6th. What has taken place since then does not change the past. Nice try, but no cigar!!

    With all of the controversey, what needs to happen is have a 4 year investigation into the election like we did the 4 years of the Trump Administration.

  • Sorry, Mr. VanGennip, you always seem to be a few steps behind reality.

    For example...

    Immediately after January 6th, McCarthy expressed his extreme displeasure with the President and was as convinced of his culpability in causing the insurrection as Cheney was and still is.

    McCarthy, sadly enough, soon had second thoughts regarding his honesty, traveled to Mar a Lago to grovel, kiss Trump's ring and beg forgiveness. He also lied in denying what he had previously said.

    Unfortunately, audio tapes have now been released which had recorded his condemnation of Trump. These will play a significant role in future public hearings.

    Let's start with the one going back to before the 2020 election where you claimed Biden's superiority to Trump in ability, honesty, intelligence, etc. Don't remember the exact wording, but the last 1 year, 3 months and 8 days have totally disproved it.

    I will keep reminding you as you make unsupported and undocumented statements along the way. Mornings are busy for me and I don't have the time to go back and make a list of your manufactured facts. It's quite ok for you to have mistaken opinions but to state them as facts is another matter.

    -- Posted by Have_Wheels_Will_Travel on Thu, Apr 28, 2022, at 8:13 AM
  • Mr. VanGennip,

    Here are some excellent, relevant examples of “…your own twisted or made-up facts.”

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    “…the hired help for Biden appear to be running the country now.”

    There is zero proof of this. O’Reilly’s twisted opinion is as immaterial as your own.

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    “… your devotion to party over Country was pretty clearly spelled out…”

    That’s totally untrue and exists only in your own mind. Pointing out Trump fallacies in putting country first.

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    “…going on 6 years of holding a grudge on Trump for shellacking Hillary is a long time.”

    Again, that’s entirely another thing you’ve made up. Any “grudges” I hold on Trump are because of the disaster his presidency was and the damage he’s doing to our country.

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    “…you're still whing about him well over a year since he left office.”

    There is no “whining.” That’s another thing that exists only in your imagination. If he had simply left office and he’d be in the “dustbin of history,” rather than continuing to delude his “base.”

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    “…does not change the past.”

    There are more and more facts coming to light, that illuminate the republican/conservative responsibility for the January 6th insurrection.

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    “With all of the controversy…”

    What controversy? There was no fraud, there was no “stolen” election, there was a free and fair vote. You seem to see a “controversy” only because Trump says so, there is no factual evidence to back you up.

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    “…protesting an election is not overthrowing a government.”

    Another “twist,” entering the Capital to halt a Constitutional process of counting electoral college votes in an attempt to throw the election to the House is not “protesting an election” it’s exactly what overthrowing means.

    I don't know where you have been Water Boy, but I have heard plenty of talk from people who never left the county they live in on Jan 6 and they are not convinced we had an honest election. How about giving them the comfort of a thorough investigation that is at least as in depth as the one launched over Hillary and Company's phony Russian Interference Report.

    "You need to make sure that those ballots are maintained under strict chain of custody at all times," David Becker, executive director of the nonpartisan Center for Election Innovation and Research, told the outlet. "It's destroying voter confidence in the United States."

    Rick, I totally agree with the above.

    So how does suddenly finding boxes full of uncounted ballots under tables or in the trunks of cars, meet that criterion when the voting gets down to the end and a favored candidate needs a few thousand more votes?

  • Mr. VanGennip,

    All you provided was some stammering and fumbling trying vainly to make sense. It didn’t work.

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    O’Reilly’s far right opinion never has been credible. Didn't he even get fired from Fox?

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    The objective of removing Trump from the Oval Office is the precise definition of putting country first.

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    Trump as “head and shoulders” over Biden is a figment of your vivid imagination. Consider how hard it is an incumbent President to lose his second term and lose the House and lose the Senate. Incompetence makes that happen.

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    There is still no “whining.” After Trump won, I pointed out potential vulnerabilities, risks and damages he could cause the nation. How many came true?

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    McCarthy is not the only one to illuminate the republican/conservative responsibility for the January 6th insurrection, there will be more. Hopefully you’ll keep in mind that the chief “bad actor” was Trump.

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    How does someone that “never left the county they live in” become convinced it was not an honest election? Someone has to repeat over and over again “the only way I can lose is if it’s rigged” and “my election was stolen.” Wonder who that could have been.

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    Another “twist,” is more and more members of Congress are becoming embroiled in Trump’s effort to “steal the victory” from Biden. And they’re getting worried.

    ----- ---- --- -- -

    Now, since you’ve learned so much in the past days, and you made an accusation, we’re still waiting for you to answer this:

    Please identify the "twisted or made-up facts" you don't understand.

    Thank you, Mr. VanGennip.

  • More "bad news"

    "Democratic lawyer Michael Sussmann was found not guilty Tuesday on the false statements charge of concealing his representation of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign from the FBI when he pushed since debunked Trump-Russia claims to the bureau in 2016.

    "The verdict is a significant loss for John Durham’s investigation of the investigators, with the special counsel losing the first case that he has brought to trial.

    "Sussmann, a former Perkins Coie lawyer who represented the Democratic National Committee when it was hacked in 2016, was acquitted after a two week trial in May after being charged with lying to the FBI about who he was representing when, in September 2016, he pushed claims of a since-debunked link between the Trump Organization and Russia’s Alfa-Bank.

    "He was indicted on a single false statements charge of concealing his clients, Clinton's campaign and Neustar executive Rodney Joffe, from FBI general counsel James Baker.

    "Sussmann denied lying to the FBI and pleaded not guilty. The jury agreed. He did not take the stand in his own defense.

    "Sussmann had worked at the Justice Department in the past, and testimony from Baker last week stated that he had a badge that allowed him access to the FBI."

    Rick, my last two Presidential votes had nothing do with party, nor voting for someone. It had to do with voting against a morally bankrupt person in one case and a mentally bankrupt person in the last choice. Given the same choices and I would make the same choices. America needed neither of those two I voted against on her record. Unfortunately we got the mental case last time around.

    I asked Google for a definition of Progressive.

    One answer....

    "In modern politics, progressivism is generally considered part of the left-liberal tradition. In the 21st century, a movement that identifies as progressive is "a social or political movement that aims to represent the interests of ordinary people through political change and the support of government actions"."

    I think today's so called Progressives come closer to the definition of Communism and Totalitarian Rule!
