Geez, who didn't see this coming? Early on after Biden had secured the Democrat nomination, it was widely opined that Biden couldn't possibly go toe-to-toe with Trump in the public debate forum given his decay of mental faculties. Now we have Nancy Pelosi setting it up nicely, saying that Biden shouldn't lower himself to such a level and "legitimize a conversation" with Trump.

If it weren't so funny and predictable, I'd be disappointed. I really wanted to hear more about "C'mon man! Don't be a lying dog-faced pony soldier!"

Do you believe anyone can debate with someone who has no respect at all for the truth? The debates would be much improved if there were fact checkers as part of the event. When someone told a lie the fact checker could announce, "Liar, liar, pants on fire!" Debaters should be held to telling the truth. If there were to be fact checkers, who would you pick to be one of them?

Set yourself up nicely, Marv! How about letting viewers decide who has and who doesn't have any respect for the truth. If the fact checkers were to be legit, Biden would have to keep his mouth shut the whole time.

See it for what it is: An excuse to keep Bunker Joe from speaking on his own.

Didn't Biden accidentally say, "We choose the truth, not the facts." Seems like a perfect freudian slip. If Biden has a good head on his shoulders he can easily win against Trump. If he doesnt, then we deserve to know what we are voting for. Either candidate could do abysmally in the debates and still win. I cant see that many supporters actually changing their minds over bad debate performances from either side.

Biden has a disadvantage that didn't affect Hillary. Hillary had Donna Brazille get the debate questions ahead of the debate to give her an edge. Too bad for Hillary it didn't help. But if someone did the same for Biden, he wouldn't remember it. It would just confuse him more. I don't think there will be any debates. I hope I am wrong but I don't think the DNC will want to expose how badly old Joe has slipped. I doubt if he will even make many live appearances. Just TV commercials where they can be heavily edited.

Trump has made many false or misleading statements, including thousands during his presidency. Commentators and fact-checkers have described this as "unprecedented" in American politics and the consistency of these falsehoods has become a distinctive part of both his business and political identity. Trump is known to have made controversial statements and subsequently denied having done so and by June 2019, many news organizations had started describing some of his falsehoods as lies. The Washington Post said his frequent repetition of false claims amounts to a campaign based on disinformation. According to writer and journalist Nancy LeTourneau, the debasing of veracity is a tactic. Within the first 100 days of Donald Trump's presidency, The Washington Post began a Fact Checker column that tallied untrue or misleading statements, with the database reaching 20,000 on July 9, 2020.

PolitiFact Says Donald Trump tweeted that the Confederate flag is “a symbol of LOVE!! Plantations kept black people employed and gave them free food and housing!!! Black unemployment was VERY low back then like now with ME as your President!!” Trump's statements were awarded PolitiFact's 2015, 2017 and 2019 Lie of the Year.

You have to realize that all the democrat leaders who are criticizing Trump have been in power for 3 to 5 decades. They are the ones who watched the country start to split on racial lines and did nothing to stop it. They are the ones who saw our jobs leaving for China, and responded with more welfare.They watched things come to a boiling point with riots in Baltimore and Ferguson MO, and did nothing. So when a person who has never held political office is elected President, they blame him for dividing the country. Even before he took the oath of office, he was hated for the turmoil that was to come.

So when you go to vote in November, remember who it was that had the power to fix our problems but instead watched the country fall apart. Remember who was the newcomer who was blamed or the mess he inherited. The one who tried to tried to fix things but was opposed by the ones who really created the mess

Trump tried to fix things? The biggest problem about that is that he never could figure out how to do it. He never had the capability. He never should have been put in the position where he could actually demonstrate his level of ability. Imagine if he was given the job of being a professional quarterback. How do you think he and his team would do? He was just the wrong guy for the job. He never had a chance as he was not capable. He was a loser from even before day 1.

How does Trumo have the power, when the Democrats dont want his help... The democrats have the power to ask for federal help. But really the way we want the system to work is how Trump is doing it, which is to have Local Authority. There is a big disconnect here. "I dont want federal government in my city. It's all Trumps mess, he should clean it up." You can't have it both ways. It's like a child who doesnt want to clean their bedroom and also doesnt want their parent to do it for them... screaming at the parent 'it's your fault I can't find my favorite toy!"

Poor Trump. He overestimated his abilities if that is possible. He simply is not up to doing the job. He is in way over his head and not even smart enough to ask for help. The only blame you can lay on other people is that they chose him, not the majority of the people, the electoral college, to do the job. Trump is hopeless and hapless. He is not qualified in any way to be the president of our country. He, simply, was a mistake. The disaster we are now dealing with came on under his watch. He can't blame it on anyone else. He totally owns it. Lies won't make it go away. His behavior has been shameful. When he is out of office he may end up in jail. He is a disgrace to our country. We have lost face in the entire world. Our country's reputation in the world community has been irreversibly damaged by the actions of him as our president. And, I am saying this as a member of the republican party.

Our economy was moving ahead faster than we have seen in decades. Unemployment was at all time lows, and minorities were benefiting big time. Trump fulfilled promises to get out of the TPP, Iran nuke deal and Paris Climate accord. He moved our Israeli embassy to Jerusalem. He negotiated new trade deals with Canada, Mexico, South Korea, Japan, Europe. He ended the policy of surrendering in the China trade war and got a phase 1 agreement. And he also b eat a sour grapes impeachment as well. And democrats say he didn't do anything. We have a huge collection of political dinosaurs in Congress and career executive branch employees who resented a new comer showing them up. Some people think he lost face with the world, but all he did was use a little pressure to get NATO countries to meet their commitments to providing for their own defense.

Trump gave us just what a lot of Americans wanted. America first. Get tough with so-called allies who were taking advantage of us. Actually fight back in the economic war that China had declared on us.

So now democrats think that letting rioters run our cities will get them votes. I think they are badly mistaken. Just my opinion.

"Our economy was moving ahead faster than we have seen in decades"

Not true: Obama’s last three years had better growth than Trump’s three years. We won't count 2020 because of covid, although Obama had the great recession of 2009.

Unemployment was at all time low, but if we gain look at that three year period: During Trump's first 36 months in office, the US economy has gained 6.6 million jobs. But during a comparable 36-month period at the end of Obama's tenure, employers added 8.1 million jobs, or 23% more than what has been added since Trump took office.

Minorities were benefiting big time. Who and how? Is that why there are protests now?

Tpp, Iran, Paris accord: all to please the anti-globalists who think a global community is bad thing. The people with no vision.

Completely sabotaged any chances of a peaceful Palestine/Israeli solution by clearly choosing sides.

Renewed old trade deals and called them his own.

Tackled China but to no effect.

Made a fool of him self nationally and internationally.

Alienated decades old alliances that won world war 2 and kept the russians in check for over 70 years.

Disgraces himself and his family by getting caught as an adulterer, a liar and scam artists who employed people who covered up his dirty deeds

Displayed a complete lack of morality, by insulting and attacking Kids, disabled people, veterans, dead people and widows, and we still not have reached rock bottom it seems when it comes to complete lack of decency and moral compass

Trump gave what only a small part of America wanted. He played on the fears of Americans and used populism, lies and appeals to patriotism to lure in middle class and poor Americans intimidated by a changing world and left behind. He over promised and under delivered. He made sure he was always there to take credit even for things he didn't do and made sure to always blame others for the bad and the ugley and took responsibility for nothing.

The swamp he promised to clean, he made deeper and put his own corrupt group of cronies in place.

He has bankrupted conservatives of any claims to morality and has exposed the conservative and christian hypocrisy.

The current riots are a culmination of 4 years of Trump. His lies and deceit don't lead to prosperity and peace, they lead to the America your currently living in!

The American people deserve much much better.

"When did a city ever tell a president they did not want him to come and visit them?"

Answer: When they were run by Democrats who are simply daring Trump to step in it and send in help for the Americans there. Meanwhile, the cities burn and businesses go under in the name of anarchy and hatred.

Trump has outlasted these liberal idiots and their complicit media, as evidenced by their newfound acknowledgement that the tactic has backfired - badly - and now the internal polling has them scared shitless. BLM in Wisconsin went from enjoying 25% support 4 weeks ago to 0% support today.

On this date in 2016, Hillary was ahead in the polling by 9 points and, today, it is alleged that Bunker Joe is down to 3%, exactly the margin of error. Even the pollsters of 2016 can't bring themselves to lie today as badly as they did in 2016.

The domestic violence angle has been a huge bust for the Democrats, as Americans can see for themselves that it is only in Democrat run cities. Even Democrat mayors in Minnesota have bailed and are supporting the president in ever increasing numbers. The jig is up.

With only hatred going for them, the Democrats don't look so confident any more and it's become clear that they are planning phase 2 of Operation Hate Trump for after the election. What a pitiful waste of political party who finally exposed themselves not as a fighter for working Americans, but as a fringe group of socialists who hate their country, its history, and everything it stands for.

Trump on Laura Ingraham:

Discussing how police shot black man Jacob Blake seven times in the back, the president said: 'They [the officers] choke, just like in a golf tournament, they miss a 3-foot putt.'

What an insane and out of touch metaphor. A President by tradition calls for calm at a time of civic unrest

And you guy feel democrats are the problem? Comparing police brutality to choking on a golf put? This guy shoulden't even be near the White House.

And lets face it. Trump will do what ever he can do fan the flames. Riots and protests are great for him. He can play law and order president and blame it on democrats and the left. He will keep this going for as close to November as he can. And now that we know that there's far-right groups and other extremists are also involved we know its a coordinated effort.

Talk about the left? Trump is so far out in left field that you can't even see him. He is beyond being a joke, if any of it was funny. So many dead from his handling of the virus. So many out of a job. So many with not enough food. The only thing Trump is good at is making a mess, ruining things. Destroying valuable assets. In general, making problems where there were none and ruining things in place to protect us all. Trump is a nightmare. Talk about crime? Trump himself and what he has done is a crime.

Luke:


Cities generally have more crime than suburban and rural areas. That’s been true for decades if not centuries and is true across the planet. The connection has been the focus of repeated research. In other words, if it were the case that cities were also more prone to elect members of one party over another, it might seem as though the most crime-riddled places in America were a function of leadership from that party.

You are certainly aware that cities tend to be heavily Democratic

there’s been a broad redistribution of the American population over the past few decades, with Americans being more likely to live near those who share their politics. Young Americans with or seeking college degrees have moved to large urban centers for work or education, leaving older relatives in more suburban and rural areas.

2018 data from Pew Research Center found that people in urban counties were twice as likely to be Democrats or Democrat-leaning independents as Republicans or Republican-leaning independents — a 31-point margin. Two decades previously, the spread between the parties was only 18 points. In rural areas, Republicans had a 16-point advantage, while in 1998 both parties were equally represented.

Another is that cities are less densely white. The Pew research also found that less than half of urban residents were non-Hispanic white. Since nonwhite Americans are much more heavily Democratic, that’s made cities more densely Democratic, too.




9/1/2020 11:24:54 AM

Frank and Tina

South East

Since there’s a correlation between size and amount of crime and between size and propensity to vote Democratic, it’s problematic to draw a causal relationship between crime and Democratic leadership. It may be the case that cities with more crime are more likely to have Democratic leaders. Such a comparison, though, is fraught, relying on the validity of reported crime data, the metric used to establish which cities are included in the analysis, the time period under consideration and so on.

To a large extent, of course, Trump isn’t really trying to make a point beyond “cities and Democrats are scary.” He’s not going to win cities but he might scare suburban voters — voters he desperately needs in November — by tying Democrats and crime together.

Good points, Frank. Humans like any other animal are more likely to fight when crowded together.

I just wonder what happened to Minneapolis? It used to be one of the safest big cities in the country. They were the first to build a skywalk system for shoppers in winter weather, and getting across busy streets safely. They built the Metrodome for pro sports and university football. Their parks were immaculate. One small lake in a park had rough fish, poor water quality, so they renovated it; drained and dredged it, cleaned up the watershed to the point of running huge vacuum cleaners. Governor Ventura got the state to update the light rail system to make commuting in the whole Twin Cities better. They took pride in their city.

Now look at Minneapolis. Torn apart on racial lines, parts have been trashed. Violence on the streets. I know that if I go to our favorite fishing lake, I will drive an extra hour just to stay as far away from Minneapolis as I can.

You can't blame Trump for their problems; it took years to get that bad. If you can't blame their political leaders, then who can you blame? Is it just that the people went bad? Was it economics? Did Bush and Obama have anything to do with it?

Why can't the democrats seem to fix their problems? If they let things get this bad, isn't it time for a change? Or do they just keep doing the same things and expect different results?

I dont think that's true Iowegian that people fight more in cities. City dwellers are more docile (aside from the anarchists). Redneck country boys fight plenty... but CNN doesnt care about that. It's not sufficiently inflammatory news.

Bailout 2 is needed. People who dont have jobs riot. It's not a racial issue. I am white and I would riot right now if I was an unemployed service worker. Congress has f'd up big time.

I find this discussions very interesting. Remember the Laurel vs Yanny and who heard what? Luke, my friend, the most shootings in a month in Chi Town in over 30 years. The constant has been Democratic politicians. The only thing different is that this happened under Trump’s watch. I can’t help but wonder what the climate was 30 years ago that prompted so many shootings. Was it Rodney King? The verdict? Maybe. History seems to be repeating itself.

Andy, Trump doesn't run cities, Republican or Democrat. Trump doesn't run states, either, governors do. I don't understand your tie-in unless you simply like the liberal tactic of interjecting names to fit narratives.

Kind of like when, for the past three months, all these "protests" in Democrat run cities were mostly peaceful, according to Democrats and their propaganda arm. Now that the polls have them tanking, it's Trump's fault.

Like how I did that?

The latest gaffe:

"Covid has taken this year, just in the outbreak, has taken more than 100 year look, here's, the, lives, it's just, it's, er, I mean, y'think about it. More lives this year than any other year for the past hundred years."

You suppose the teleprompter's faculties are also fading along with his? How would this sound at a G7 summit or a NATO giveaway?

Truck Tech I’m fully aware of the jurisdictional responsibilities at local, state and federal levels. I was merely thinking out loud about how people can see or hear something and interpret it very differently. Most Influential people don’t run anything, yet their words and opinions can resonate with the populous. The entertainment industry for example.

Trucktech there are plenty of Trump gaffe's recorded.(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4MyLwAokINc) An it was only the other day that there was talk of a series of mini strokes for the big cheetoh, responsible for making him make his unannounced visit to Water Reed that he explained in several different ways last year. He's up there in age to. and has spewed some pretty retarded stuff.

And dont worry about G7 or Nato, we seen Trump at international summits and in even in a good shape he manages to embarrass us and look foolish. Joe Biden could not do any worse.

Good point Andy on the entertainment industry, remember Jussie Smollet? The guy who faked his own hate crime in Chicago (blamed getting beat by white Trump supporters), wasted thousand of man hours and Chicago PD time, and then had the democratic prosecutor suddenly drop all charges against him? He was free to go, what type of example does that set for the thugs in Chicago when they know they won't prosecuted?

It sets a terrible example Luke. I was so pleased to see this wart re-indicted by A Grand Jury in six counts and the cherry on top was a federal judge throwing out his counter suit against the city for malicious prosecution. But I digress.

"that there was talk of a series of mini strokes for the big cheetoh". We all know where the "talk" comes from.

Now Pelosi shows her Democrat elitist ass by blaming a salon owner for what she knew was wrong. It doesn't get much lower but, then, she IS a Democrat.
