Hey Greg , sorry about touching that obama nerve earlier , just for future reference ......where is it located ? I think it must be near the base of the spine because it causes so much liberal butthurt but then again it may be near where the brain should sit as it causes so many liberal tears to flow , help me out bro.
I don't think it's fair that you're drinking and posting without telling folk where you got your 'special tea' from during lockdown.

I wonder when it's going to dawn on the Dems and Libs that Trump is a distraction that keeps them preoccupied, so that they can just leave the rest of the US citizens alone?
Looks like you'll need to add a good few Reps to your delusion.

@Jabulani22 if you were a citizen of the USA and had to vote between Trump and Obama, who would you vote for?
Depends on a few things , which years would it be over etc ?
Timeline aside , it would be based on party and nominee attributes , reps beat dems on party policy 7/10 times.

The majority leader is signaling to vulnerable Republican Senate candidates that they should do whatever it takes to salvage their campaigns


Sen. Mitch McConnell is allowing Republican Senate candidates to do whatever it takes to salvage their campaigns ahead of what Republicans increasingly fear could be a devastating election for their party.

In recent weeks, the Senate majority leader has become so concerned over Republicans losing control of the Senate that he has signaled to vulnerable GOP senators in tough races that they could distance themselves from the President if they feel it is necessary, according to multiple senior Republicans including a source close to McConnell.

That could mean breaking with Trump on the administration's response to the coronavirus pandemic and the continued efforts by the President to paint an optimistic picture despite rising cases and deaths across parts of the country, especially in many Republican states in the South and Midwest.

While this may give some senators the flexibility to draw a distinction between themselves and the President, it also forces them to walk a tightrope. Trump remains enormously popular with the Republican base, and any attempts to undercut him risks alienating those voters.

"These vulnerable senators can't afford to explicitly repudiate Trump," said one senior Republican on Capitol Hill. "They just need to show they are independent on issues important in their states."

Still, Trump continues to give GOP senators ways to make their break with him easier.

The President's sustained assault on mail-in voting lacks GOP allies. And his suggestion on Thursday morning to delay the election drew open rebukes from many top Republicans, including multiple senators up for reelection, as well as McConnell.

"Never in the history of the country, through wars, depressions and the Civil War, have we ever not had a federally scheduled election on time. We'll find a way to do that again this November 3rd," the majority leader said in an interview with WNKY.

Wait, what?

James Murdoch Steps Down from News Corp Board Over ‘Disagreements’ Over Editorial Content

James Murdoch, former chief executive of 21st Century Fox and son of Rupert Murdoch, has resigned from the News Corp. board of directors over “disagreements over certain editorial content” published by the company’s news outlets, per an investor filing.

His brief letter reads as follows;

Ladies and Gentlemen:

I hereby tender my resignation as a member of the Board of Directors of News Corporation (the “Company”), effective as of the date hereof.

My resignation is due to disagreements over certain editorial content published by the Company’s news outlets and certain other strategic decisions.

Sincerely,

James R. Murdoch


News Corp’s brands include the Dow Jones, which includes the Wall Street Journal, Barron’s and MarketWatch, the New York Post, Storyful and Australian publications the Australian, the Daily Telegraph, the Sunday Telegraph, and others.

His father, the elder Murdoch, has been executive chairman of News Corp since 2013 after the company was separated from 21st Century Fox, and is the chairman and founder of Fox Corp, which operates Fox News, Fox Sports, Fox Entertainment and Fox television stations. His brother Lachlan Murdoch is the executive chairman and CEO of Fox Corp.

At Vanity Fair’s New Establishment Summit last fall, James Murdoch — who told Vanity Fair editor-in-chief Radhika Jones that he does not watch Fox News — called opinion programming on U.S. cable news not “terribly helpful,” but also pinned some of the blame on “crazily damaging” talk radio. His investment vehicle Lupa Systems has a minority stake in Vice Media.

US: House Democrats subpoena Pompeo for documents on Hunter Biden

Democrats say Pompeo used State Department resources to 'advance a political smear' against Joe Biden's son.




The Democratic chairman of the US House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee has issued a subpoena to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo demanding documents he provided to Senate Republicans investigating the son of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.


A Republican-led Senate committee has been gathering information related to Hunter Biden, son of the former vice president who is set to be Republican President Donald Trump's opponent in the November election.


Committee Chairman Eliot Engel said Friday he had issued the subpoena as part an investigation into Pompeo's "apparent use of Department of State resources to advance a political smear of former Vice President Joe Biden".


The subpoena also asks for internal department emails about responding to Congress.

Will Trumptards get the COVID-19 vaccination when it arrives, or not?

Trump’s rhetoric will make the pandemic worse. Words are now a matter of life and death
Trump used to flirt with anti-vaxxers. Now he is demanding a coronavirus vaccine


New research has found that Americans who voted for Donald Trump in 2016 are particularly prone to anti-vaccination attitudes and that these attitudes can be exacerbated by the president’s tweets. The findings have been published in the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology.

“I’m generally interested in anti-vaccination beliefs because they have the potential to do so much damage. When Trump was elected it also struck me as a curious moment in history, because he was the first U.S. president in modern history to be on the record with anti-vaxx views,” explained study author Matthew J. Hornsey, a professor at the University of Queensland Business School.

Trump had sent dozens of tweets linking vaccinations with autism, such as one in 2014 that read: “Healthy young child goes to doctor, gets pumped with massive shot of many vaccines, doesn’t feel good and changes – AUTISM. Many such cases!”


Faster Than ‘Warp Speed’? Trump Tries To Put Pedal To Metal On Already Ambitious Vaccine Timeline

President Donald Trump wants some people to be able to get the vaccine sooner than the end of the year to try to demonstrate that an end to the pandemic is within reach. Meanwhile, some worry that the vaccine race will leave poorer countries in the dust.

I don't know hey, I'm starting to think that him and his croneys just might actually be as dumb as they seem to act. Either that we must commend them for so consistently keeping up the act for such a long time.
The Orange Dotard was so proud of his boy today - miscreants.

"Great job by Jim Jordan, and also some very good statements by Tony Fauci. Big progress being made!" Trump tweeted aboard Air Force One as he traveled to Tampa, Florida, for talks on the coronavirus response and hurricane preparedness.

Trump later retweeted a post from Jordan protesting the fact that people are discouraged to go church, work and school – issues on which he badgered Fauci during the hearing before the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis.

Fauci, often the subject of criticism from Trump and other Republicans, said people should avoid crowds – and children be kept away from them – in order to prevent the spread of the virus that has killed more than 150,000 Americans.
Melania take note.

The real danger is a perfect catastrophe of administrative overload, postal delays and voter error that could lead to millions of absentee ballots not counting. And this year, unlike the past, those ballots are likely to be overwhelmingly Democratic.
The problem for Democrats? Absentee ballots are rejected at higher rates than those cast in person. And academic studies have shown that younger voters and voters of color, some of Democrats' most reliable voters, are much more likely to cast mail ballots that are rejected and less likely to take steps to "cure" their ballots if election officials flag them for signature problems. In 2016, according to an official report by the U.S. Election Assistance Commission, 318,728 of the nation's 33 million returned mail ballots were rejected (1 percent), with the most common reasons being missing/nonmatching signatures or the ballot being returned too late.
This is why I personally can't see Biden winning outsider states like Georgia and Texas. If I had the choice, I'd always vote in-person.
