Every day is a reenactment of my book, “Resistance Is Futile.” Trump does something stupid (or many things) and the media say, We can top that!

Trump fumbles the ball, followed by the media throwing an interception, then Trump commits a personal foul, but the media blows the field goal, then Trump throws the ball out of bounds.

Does anyone want to win this election?

As the country burns, Trump (the president) sits in his bed sending out gratuitously bad-ass tweets ... followed by utter spinelessness. He talks like he’s Yosemite Sam, then does nothing. This is the worst of everything. How about saying sweet nothings — then stunning them with force!

Trump claims he’s the antidote to the mass riots in cities across the country, but what powers will he have after being reelected that he doesn’t have right now, while he’s already president?

Our only alternative is the party that “embraces Black Lives Matter,” as The Washington Post admitted, calling Democrats’ cuddling up to BLM a “remarkable development in American politics, as a major party sought to associate itself fully with an emerging protest movement.”

So your choice is: a president who denounces riots, looting and violence in the streets, but does nothing, or a president who actively supports the people doing the riots, looting and violence in the streets.

And what can the media say? They denied the riots were even happening, then blamed “white supremacists” for the violence they said didn’t exist. (Is it the Boogaloo Boys or QAnon?) Now the media are calling the riots “peaceful protests” again, so I guess they know it’s their side doing the arson and destruction.

Democrats could wallop Trump if the media would just stop lying constantly.

FIVE Trumps spoke at the Republican Convention. You got anything to say about that, media? No, they’re too busy claiming “ethics” violations because Trump’s secretary of state spoke at the convention. That may have violated a norm! A norm, I tell you!

And the media’s No. 1 standby for any occasion is to repeat the lie that Trump called neo-Nazis “fine people.”

That one, they won’t give up. The neo-Nazi lie is even crazier than the one about Trump, an incompetent buffoon, orchestrating a vast international conspiracy with Russian intelligence to steal the 2016 presidential election. The Russian collusion story was merely preposterous. The neo-Nazi lie is on tape.

But that lie is the centerpiece of Biden’s campaign. When he announced his candidacy, Biden said he was propelled into the race when he saw Trump call neo-Nazis “fine people.”

Why not because Trump didn’t end the carried interest loophole giving billionaire hedge fund managers a minuscule tax rate? Or because Trump never produced an infrastructure bill? Or because he’s put his incompetent son-in-law in charge of everything?

Regular people had to post the true Trump quote, including this part: “... and I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and white nationalists, because they should be condemned totally. But you had many people in that group other than neo-Nazis and white nationalists ...”

Can Joe withdraw now?

No, he doubled-down, repeating the lie in his taped convention speech. Then regular people produced the quote all over again.

The media regularly invoke the neo-Nazi lie in some sort of weird sacramental ritual. And regular people have to keep posting the truth over and over and over again.

If Trump could be locked in the basement like Biden, he’d probably be reelected just to spite the media.

There are plenty of things for the media to dunk Trump on, by which I mean things he’s actually done as opposed to things the media wish he’d done. But no, they have to tell huge stinking lies about him. Even a guilty person can be framed, and that’s what’s happening to Trump.

The media hysterically denounce Trump for opposing vote-by-mail, smugly announcing that vote-by-mail is exactly the same as absentee voting, as Chuck Todd emphatically stated on MSNBC this week.

Look up the absentee voting requirements in your state right now and see if it’s the same as having ballots dumped on your doorstep because you — or someone who once lived there — ever registered to vote.

In New York state, for example, to receive an absentee ballot, you have to fill out an official form stating:

1. Name and date of birth of the voter

2. The address where you are registered

3. An address where the ballot is to be sent

4. The reason for the request, and

5. The signature of the voter

By contrast, with vote-by-mail schemes, ballots are automatically mailed to every eligible voter without any request at all. Ballots will be piled up outside apartment buildings, college dormitories and homeless shelters.

Usually, it’s conservatives who instinctively lunge for the worst possible argument — nah, leave those AK-47s behind, I’ve got the water balloons! — but with Trump, liberals can’t help themselves. They’d be better off being fairer to him, but their hatred makes that impossible.

The media are forcing people to say, “I don’t like the guy, but if it will upset The New York Times, NPR, The New Yorker and MSNBC, I have to vote for Trump.”

Wow. The internet and Social Media is destroying the United States of America. There is such a thing as "hate the war, support the troops". Respect is missing in our country. And it shows.

Where do you think much of the animosity we face these days comes from? There is so much hate in your words; rage and disparity is not just on the streets of Chicago and Portland and Kenosha...

I suspect that had the internet been around 100 years ago, we would have ZERO pride in being an American.

And that is very sad.

I wish people would use their energy, effort, ideas and words into making a positive change; instead of perpetuating hate behind the anonymity if a keyboard.

DumpChump

I find it interesting that too many are focused on what the candidates or parties are saying rather than what their characters or values are. Let's face it, everyone is capable of making bad decisions - but support leaders who have the right character and values, and they will self-correct and make the right decisions in the end. This President has no soul, no character, values only himself and those "loyal" to him. He is a little man. Is that what Americans want leading the greatest country in the world??? And you think Mayors of liberal cities are causing the chaos across the nation??? Check out the tone and source of discord in our politics and you will find the rotten apple - yes, sitting in the WH chomping on his Bic Mac and tweeting nonsense to his minions.

BigBob

Some interesting words of wisdom were presented by trump during an interview on FOX where he decided to use a golf comparison when talking about police committing acts of violence and brutality against people. "You know, a choker. They Choke... shooting the guy in the back many times, I mean, couldn't you have done something different," he said, referring to the murder of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin by a police officer. Blake, a 29-year-old Black man and father, was shot seven times in the back and is now paralyzed from the waist down. Three of Blake's minor sons were with him at the time of the shooting. “They choke. Just like in a golf tournament, they miss a three-foot putt," the fake president said, referencing a hypothetical golfer missing a short putt. Laura Ingraham (whomever that might be), realizing that what trump had just said was dumber than usual, quickly attempted shut up the fool, who ignored her and continued to spew, “I'm saying people choke. People choke and people are bad people. You have both. You have some bad people and they choke.”

Later on trump rambled all but incoherently about his usual talking points, most of them outright lies and exaggerations, and incorrectly said that Portland "has been burning for many years, for decades it's been burning." Just another of the more than 20,000 lies trump has told the American people since being appointed.

Davel2

In Kenosha when confronted with a question about the Blake Family, Trump said he

felt bad the family had to go through this and that he understands from their

Pastor, that the Mother is a fine woman. Of course Trump was simply trying to appeal

to his Evangelical Base by showing respect for the words of a Pastor. The Blake Family found that interesting since they said they don't have a Pastor. So why Trump spent the whole day reiterating his "Strong Man" approach and fanning the flames of division, when he finally does address the shooting itself, he lies about that. Showing he is not at all in touch with the full dynamics of the situation, but simply trying to muster some votes in a swing state. And that Ladies and Gentleman, is the guy some actually want to reelect.

BigBob

And here’s the gaff – trump’s blatant vote-getter executive order on the payroll tax has a little surprise for American workers next year. Your paycheck will be a little short for the first four months of the year! The Internal Revenue Service has informed employers they will be liable to pay back what they defer from their employees’ paychecks under the executive order. To accomplish this, employers will take double the Social Security tax out of employees’ paychecks for the first four months of 2021 to pay back what trump deferred.

BigBob

Trump’s proposal to permanently terminate the payroll tax could defund Social Security and eliminate benefits for senior citizens and people with disabilities in less than 4 years. That’s not me talking. That’s what the Social Security Administration recently reported to us

Davel2

[thumbup][thumbup] BigBob... It appears from the comments I receive back that those that need to read my "long" comments the most, don't read them at all, or at best with an open-mind. Fine details that clarify the facts don't appeal to them, especially if they are to blinded by the propaganda they ingest to agree. It's a dirty job, but someone has got to make them face reality. After all, it was small towns like this that provided enough votes to give Trump an electoral win. I believe your quantity of smaller factual comments may provide a more digestible formula for those who along with "other" issues, are incapable of comprehending and maintaining focus beyond a short paragraph. I may adapt your method. As if making a "Positive Impression" on Vince Gors and his associates is a high priority. LOL Have a great day my friend, you're doing fine.

Vince Gors

b b. Can't you please get Everything off your Chest in One Post. I mean you are Not making a Positive Impression, by posting numerous rambling hate filled rubbish.[rolleyes]

BigBob

Nope, it's just so much fun making all of you pathetic trump supporters squirm as I post fact after fact after fact. Let me ask you, if you are still supporting trump, is it because of the economic collapse, or the hundreds of thousands of dead Americans from the trump virus?

Mr Lemons

Joe Biden clarified today how he would handle the pandemic: "COVID has taken this year, just since the outbreak. Has taken more than 100 years look here's the lives. It's just I mean you think about it." - Joe Biden.

IcePick

Mr Bob is Triggered!

Mr Lemons

IcePick - [scared][thumbup]

BigBob

Ahh, come on! You clowns couldn't "trigger" me on your best of days. I just like to post the facts that drive you all crazy. Out of curiosity, for my fellow senior citizens who support trump. I get it, it’s a difficult call. On the one hand he’s under-funding your Social Security, jeopardizing your mailed prescriptions and eradicating your Medicare.

On the other hand, he has advocated killing you in a pandemic to keep the DOW strong.

CVA-42

Triggered! You are always triggered. Look at all the posts you have here. Normal people don't act the way you do. BTW, you are the one commonly referred to all as the 'village clown'.

'On the one hand he’s under-funding your Social Security, jeopardizing your mailed prescriptions and eradicating your Medicare.' All of this is just Rovr unproven propaganda.

IcePick

Mr Bob "The Village Clown". I think you have a new title for your Bibliography! CVA-42 should be entitled to royalty's.... [cool]

BigBob

When asked what his plan would be for the next four years if, God forbid, he be re-appointed, our stable genius said, “… I think, I think, it would be, I think it would be very, very, I think we’d have a very, very solid, we would continue what we are doing and we have other things on our plate…” 27 August 2020

What would those “other” things be? Another 200,000 dead Americans in 2021? Social Security effectively eliminated in 2023 – leaving millions of senior Americans to die? The death of the USPS? What are those “plans,” Donnie?

Mr Lemons

Hyperbole much? Social Security was on track anyway to stop having a surplus in 2023. It would continue to pay, drawing down on funds in the trust until 2035, when there would be nothing left. The Post Office needs to raise their prices, cut costs, or both.

BigBob

So you agree with trump to just shut off funding and kill Social Security and leave millions of Americans without an income? As I said I am so impressed by the number of wealthy people here in Havasu that don't need their SS benefit. And BTW if left alone by 2035 SS would still pay-out 75% of benefits. What needs to be done is to eliminate the earnings cap and tax every dollar received (note that I did not say earned) for FICA. Once again the rich get to put it over on the average American.

As to the USPS what needs to be done is the Republican instituted mandate that they pay forward - by 75 years - all of their pension costs be dropped. That alone could level the playing field. As to raising prices i think that's a good idea and I suppose you would also be amenable to being charged whenever you interface with the police or need to call the fire department? Hey how about the military selling "stuff' to help fund them? And remember the USPS is virtually the only service mentioned in the Constitution

simon1dog

Mr. Lemons - I watched that miscue :-) He's going to be eaten alive in a debate if they even allow the man to speak. Seeing what I'm seeing it's actually sad.

BigBob

Boy, I'll say. Trump made a perfect ass out of himself and if he keeps on they're gonna have to put a muzzle on him. Oh yeah, then there's this - “I want a safe America.

Safe from COVID-19. Safe from crime and looting. Safe from racially motivated violence.

Safe from bad cops. Safe from four more years of Donald Trump.” Joe Biden

BigBob

The takeaway from Republican gene-pool-cleansing events – “Look at how terrible American is right now! Vote for four more years of it.”

“Total honesty is what we as citizens deserve from our president” Melania Trump 8/25/2020 So good to see the first “lady” is a Biden/Harris supporter.

To sum up trump’s acceptance speech, “I alone can fix this mess that wasn’t a mess until I made it the mess that is today.”

BigBob

It never ends with Republicans -

Over seventy years later the whine is still the same. President Truman took on Republican Senator Robert Taft who made the stupid statement that the great issue in their campaign was “creeping socialism.” Truman responded with, “Now that is the patented trademark of the special interest lobbies. Socialism is a scare word they have hurled at every advance the people have made in the last 20 years. Socialism is what they called public power. Socialism is what they called social security. Socialism is what they called farm price supports. Socialism is what they called bank deposit insurance. Socialism is what they called the growth of free and independent labor organizations. Socialism is their name for almost anything that helps all the people.

“When the Republican candidate inscribes the slogan ‘Down With Socialism on the banner of his ‘great crusade,’ that is really not what he means at all. What he really means is, ‘Down with Progress — down with Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal,’ and ‘Down with Harry Truman’s fair Deal.’ That is what he means.”

BigBob

Some more interesting facts regarding why we need to dump the t*#d on November third -

Presidential jobs creation since 1948 –

Truman 9 million – Eisenhower 4 million – Kennedy 4 million – Johnson 12 million – Nixon 9 million – Ford 2 million – carter 10 million – Reagan 16 million – Bush the First 3 million – Clinton 23 million – Bush the Kind 1 million – Obama 12 million. Current fool – MINUS 6 million. (Federal Reserve, “All Employees Total – Non-Farm” 2020)

CVA-42

Another stupid Rovr spin.

BigBob

Can you tell everyone why you are incapable of actually disputing my comments with facts instead of just spewing some insulting BS?

CVA-42

Did I trigger you?

Mr Lemons

Some Democrats/socialists/leftists/progressives/Marxists commenters keep pushing the lie that our constitutionally elected president wants to sentence Americans to death by ending Social Security and Medicare. This is a lie perpetuated by Democrats/socialists/leftists/progressives/Marxists to scare senior citizens into voting for Democrats. They bring this up every election season. Another lie is that the President wants to destroy the Post Office. The Post Office doesn't need any help with this. Another lie is that the President's "ignorance" has killed 180,000 Americans. Voter suppression is another lie. As far as grifters, I thought at first it was Hunter Biden and the other Bidens that was being brought up. Like I said before, they will lie, cheat, intimidate, and steal to win at all costs. They will say anything to further their "cause", and their cause is to change our form of government.

BigBob

Republican/fascists/Nazis will do anything to mislead the American people at the behest of their Russian handlers. Let us now look at the facts -

1) Trump pledged on 8/August/2020 to permanently cut payroll taxes that fund Social Security and Medicare if he wins reelection in November, “If I’m victorious on November 3rd, I plan to forgive these taxes and make permanent cuts to the payroll tax. I’m going to make them all permanent.” Linda Benesch, a spokeswoman for Social Security Works, told USA TODAY "Nearly 90% of Social Security's funding comes from payroll contributions, and if Trump terminated payroll contributions, the other funding sources would be insufficient. By law, Social Security is forbidden from paying benefits if there is not sufficient revenue to cover the cost." That would result in millions of American facing death because their income would disappear.

2) Trump has made it obvious he wants no part of a mail-in election and he is more than willing to destroy the USPS in the process. Most people believe that Trump wants no part of a mail-in election, and he’d be willing to destroy the Postal Service in the process. If voting continues as an in-person situation, who do you think will show up to vote in person? It will be the idiot demographic that violently opposes wearing masks. This election gives Trump a reason to continue choking the life out of the Postal Service, but don’t for a moment think it is his only incentive. The Postal Service is currently so financially fruitless because, in 2006, the Republican Congress passed a law that required the Postal Service to pre-fund for 75 years the pensions for over 600,000 employees. At the time, that equated to over $110 billion in retiree healthcare services and it is assuredly more than that by now. Who would get all of that money if the postal service is forced to fail? Surely, it’s swelled more since then. Who gets all of that money if the USPS goes under? Most likely it will be a private corporation carefully selected by trump who will have close ties to the corporation.

3) Trump is responsible for the deaths of over 180,000 Americans and here is why - 1. He shut down the Global Health Security and Bio-defense agency.

2. He fired Homeland Security Advisor Tom Bossart in 2018, whose job was to coordinate a response to global pandemics. He was not replaced.

3. In 2018 Dr. Luciana Borio, the NSC director for medical and bio-defense preparedness left the job and was not replaced.

4. In 2018, at the direction of trump, the CDC stopped funding epidemic prevention activities in 39 countries, including CHINA.

5. The NSC’s Senior Director for Global Health Security and biodefense, Tim Ziemer, left the position on May 8, 2018 and was not replaced. The departure occurred the same day that the WHO announced a new Ebola outbreak in Africa.

6. In June 2019, the trump administration discontinued the CDC medical epidemiologist position that was embedded in China – That person left China in July, a few months before the coronavirus hit China. The position’s purpose was to DETECT disease outbreaks IN CHINA.

7. Amid the worldwide outbreak a 19% cut to the budget of the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention, a 10% cut to Public Health Services, and a 7% cut to Global Health Services, the organizations that respond to public health threats were all engineered by, yep, trump.

8. One of the more brilliant ides from trump was ingesting disinfectants as a potential “cure.”

9. He chose Mike Pence, not a doctor, to oversee the US pandemic response.

10. Trump sowed doubt about the severity of the virus, using the word HOAX at events and rallies, even doing so at events where the virus was spread.

11. In yet another brilliant move trump declined to use the WHO’s test. In January, within a week of finding out about China’s mysterious virus, Berlin virologists produced the first diagnostic test. By February, the WHO shipped the tests to 60 countries. Trump declined taking any WHO tests even as a temporary bridge.

12. Trump pretended the virus had been contained many, many times. You’ve seen his quotes.

13. On January 31 he imposed travel restrictions on China. Nevertheless, he continued to allow China flights with over 40,000 people coming in. The US did NOT test anyone arriving from 14 Trump stopped distribution of useful information concerning the pandemic many times. He halted CDC guideline release as states began to open, later allowing release of watered-down guidelines on May 20, long after many states reopened. Church reopening guidelines were deleted. Within 48 hours of the release, he demanded that churches be opened immediately.

15. On March 19, trump said: “Nobody knew there would be a pandemic or epidemic of this proportion.” Daily intelligence briefings, internal memos, and warnings from past Presidents offer evidence this was NOT true.

16. On March 20 with a straight face trump tells America: “I don’t take responsibility at all.”

19. On April 21, trump removes the nation’s top vaccine expert, Dr. Rick Bright, as head of the CDC’s Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority. The removal is retribution for Dr. Bright challenging the trump’s pseudo-science claims, particularly his unwillingness to support trump’s rabid endorsement of an unproven drug.

20. Trump relentlessly searches for scapegoats – he has blamed the CDC, China, Obama, the WHO, “flawed” studies, the Democrats, Pelosi, governors, and he continues to seek out new scapegoats and distractions to deflect.

4) Are trump’s grifters? A news story from May reported that trump and his kids engaged in fraud by promoting a pyramid scheme and the lawsuit move forward. “District Judge Lorna G. Schofield ruled that the class action lawsuit can move forward. The lawsuit claims trump and his children Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump and Ivanka Trump are guilty of fraud, false advertising and unfair competition for their dealings with multi-level marketing company ACN, although federal racketeering and conspiracy charges were dismissed last year.”

So it is plain to see that Republican/fascists/Nazis under the direction of their Russian handlers will lie, cheat and steal to mislead the American people about the disgusting actions of rump and his grifter administration. Remember their goal is allow Putin to take control of our nation.

Mr Lemons

1.) You did not prove your original allegation that President Trump wants to end Social Security/Medicare. Checkout Polifact/Snopes/USA Today.

2.) Speculation on your part (or whoever you stole this from). This is example of how Democrats etc. lie. Everyone is for absentee voting. What is at issue is mailing a ballot, without it being requested, to every registered voter (dead or alive). Democrats lump both together and lie that Republicans are against all voting by mail. What the Democrats want is for their to be confusion on election day and they will take advantage of it. Wait and see what happens. There will be massive fraud, ballot harvesting, and lawsuits (if Biden loses).

3.) - 20.) None of this proves that President Trump is responsible for 180,000 Covid-19 deaths as you stated.

4.) Your numbering scheme is screwed up. Probably due to your frantic "cut and paste." I'm sure the news story "alleged" the charges from a class-action lawsuit. The Obama-appointed, District Judge Lorna G. Schofield allowed it to continue (surprise!). You charged that the Trump family are "grifters." This is a weak allegation and doesn't prove that they are grifters. Biden's family more aptly fits the profile of grifters.

Please name these "Russian handlers" that you keep referring to. Maybe you imagined them. As I've said, and you've proven my point, Democrats/progressives/liberals/socialists/Marxists will lie, cheat, and steal to win an election. And they're always unhappy and miserable.

So as I've said, Democrats/socialists/progressives/liberals/Marxists will lie, cheat

BigBob

The lengths that the Republican/fascist/Nazis will go to in order to mislead the American people is astounding. Faced with irrefutable facts they will continue to lie and claim the information is invalid or as trump would say "fake." As to the Russian handlers, it is more than obvious someone is controlling these fools because none of them have the brains to actually discuss anything rationally. Beware the Putin inspired interference in our election that trump supports. He has been bought and paid for.

deaton

“Remember their goal is allow Putin to take control of our nation.“ (sic) With you being the “spelling cop” you really should “proofread” BigBob! So it’s “Putin” now is it? Did you put yore NAZIS and fascists away? You know you’re defeating your purpose with this mile long “Stack-O-Lies” no one read this garbage, anything over a paragraph, people just skip over it. Well except maybe HavasuGuy [batman], that moron reads all your trash. I don’t think he’s had an independent thought in years? Although he has mastered the “thump up and thumb down emoji”, maybe there’s hope after all? [thumbup][tongue][love] Deaton

Mr Lemons... Did you start off with enough descriptive names? You left out Antifa,

Commies, and a host of other names you could have used to enhance your agenda. Again with the usual tit-for-tat arguments you always make. You accuse someone of being a grifter or wrong doing as if that validates and makes more acceptable the wrong doing of another. In any case, it's common knowledge, that long before Trump, the Republicans were always the most vocal on ending Social Security and Medicare. It goes all the way back to FDR with Social Security and LBJ with Medicare. Do you not remember Paul Ryan wanting to privatize Social Security when Obama was in power? The common play book of the Republican Party is to chip away or undermine popular social programs, government agencies, signed legislation, etc., in an effort to eliminate or severely limit their power. They do it with everything from abortion, to banking regulation, to USPS. In the case of USPS, the Republicans have long wanted to privatize it. In Trump's case he wants to prevent voting by mail and admitted it, before he denied it after realizing how unpopular his motives were even with his own party. It would be safe to say that it's more likely Democrats will preserve Social Security, than Republicans. This is determined not from rhetoric, but by the actual actions the parties have undertaken in the past. As far as the virus is concerned, Trump calling it a hoax, discouraging the wearing of mask, and contradicting the doctors and scientist, did not help and he is responsible for the impact the virus has had on the nation since he is the President. The buck doesn't stop only when it's convenient. So why lie? Would you be so quick to defend a Democrat if he or she was President and we had over 180,000 dead? His latest move was to retweet an article by a right-wing group claiming that only 9 thousand have died from the virus and it's all exaggerated to get Trump out of office. Does that sound productive to you when doctors, scientist, and morgues are telling of a much different reality? As per your comment below regarding the violence, nobody is supporting it. Biden just made yet another speech denouncing the violence strongly, but unlike Trump, he called for calm and explained how unproductive this behavior is to finding a solution. Where if you evaluate Trump's rhetoric, it's all "strong man" nonsense that is only intensifying a bad situation. Now we have both undisciplined protestors and Trump Vigilantes shooting each other in the street. After watching the Republican Convention it was obvious, Trump views the unrest as a winning formula for the election. So again, why lie about the reality. This election to me is really about continuing or not, the unprecedented chaos that Trump's approach has exacerbated under his watch. His divisiveness and motivation with every single issue we face as a nation. Now for some like yourself, I think you like Trump's approach as you consistently continue with arguments that are just parroting the unproductive and extremely divisive propaganda that both Trump and FOX News speak. Unfortunately, Trump has made it okay for his supporters to lie, tell half-truths, exaggerate, manipulate, and operate without facts as he consistently does it himself. This is evident by simply researching the facts and the reality without prejudice. Now you can say, why do I care about what you think or what you spread. I care because, your vote, despite all the misinformation and the reality that you're are blind to, counts just as much as mine, and it's not fair that all of us have to live with the consequences of an election where the winner based his campaign on telling the most lies and spreading the most false propaganda. Sorry to be so long-winded, but a discussion regarding the future of the nation deserves more than just a single sentence or short paragraph of snarky unsubstantiated remarks.

Mr Lemons

The Democrats did not denounce rioting, burning, looting, and violence at their convention. They, along with the media, said that they were "mostly peaceful protests."

Only when their internal polling indicated that their support of the rioters, looters, and thugs was losing them votes did they change their stance. Talk about cynical. Today their "talking points" argue feebly that Trump is responsible for the lawlessness in the streets. Saturday night in Portland a Trump supporter, Aaron J. Danielson, was murdered by an Antifa member. Murdered for his beliefs. Democrat-run Portland has allowed over a 100 nights of rioting to take place. Democrats have set up GoFundMe pages for Antifa and BLM bail money. Has Biden denounce this killing in Portland?

Davel2

Mr. Lemons... The great majority of the Protestors were and are peaceful, but the news media using their usual "if it bleeds it leads" approach created a different image in viewers mind. Unfortunately, viewers themselves seem more interested in watching destruction than people marching peacefully. It is unfortunate, but it's the way it is. Trump and his team have capitalized on it and used it to instill fear in Americans.

Giuliani during the convention was warning women in the suburbs that the looters were coming for them. That's insane speak. There was extremely little said by Republicans regarding the incidents that created the whole issue, where as the Democrats in their convention did talk about. That does not make them complicit with rioters, but it does make them willing to have a conversation about racial injustice that is long over due. Once again let's not lie. You have mentioned the rioter who killed Danielson, but didn't mention the 17 year old who killed two protestors or the ones who have driven their cars into crowds of protestors. With video to prove it, you also forgot to mention the trucks driving down the streets flying Trump Flags, spraying bear mace and shooting paint balls at the protestors. Trump himself called them "Patriots" in a tweet and would not denounce their behavior, but of course had plenty of accusations for the other group. Biden on the other hand, has denounced the violence on several occasions. My point is, with those that support Trump, it seems they overlook the behavior of other Trump Supporters and attack and speak about only those that oppose him. The game of tit-for-tat like that if two wrongs make a right. In the case of the violence taking place on the streets, to be fair about it, I denounce both. They are not Patriots, they are Vigilantes, the looters are not protestors, they are criminals, both sides are partaking in lawlessness. But when a sitting President of the United States take a side and pits Americans against other Americans, instead of seeking a resolution, that is dangerous man. Biden has taken a much more Presidential approach. Once again you have allowed your hatred of Democrats and Liberals to cloud your judgement as it's evident in all you comments. You have used, and I hate to say this about others all the time, your lack of empathy, objectivity, and your personal prejudices to allow you to take the side of a President that has failed dramatically. He has failed to understand that once you take the oath of office, you serve as President to everyone, not just your supporters. You don't manipulate citizens to the extent of creating unprecedented polarization. By the way, Antifa is a concept meaning antifascist, it's not an organized group for the 900th time. We could all have much more interesting and productive conversations if we could simply be honest and fair about things, but after 4 months on here, it's like doing so would be a travesty to some. It's not a football game, it's our country and we are destroying it by allowing ourselves to be so divided by taking the lead from a narcissist who's only interest is getting reelected. Vote for him if you want, but at least admit to what he is and how he's manipulating dangerous situations to get your vote. That is what he is doing. Period.

Hmm. I don't watch Fox News. I read the news myself. The future of the nation is not in danger if you gave shorter replies in the comments section of a small town newspaper.

Mr Lemons... Save the nation write smaller comments. Even I got a chuckle out of that. Very good. But it's a complex topic and not easy to comment on in any meaningful way in just a few words. I agree, it's just a small town paper, but it's small towns like this collectively that mustered up enough electoral votes to elect Trump. In any case, we're good, enough said about this topic.

Republican/fascists/Nazis will do anything to win. To them the ends justify the means. They support and justify the massive unconstitutional actions by a fake president, he and his grifter family stealing from us daily, his determination to take away earned Social Security of millions of Americans sentencing them to death, his voter suppression actions including but not limited to destroying the Postal Service and his ignorance of the pandemic that has so far killed over 180,000 Americans. Polling shows Americans are worried about the state of their lives from economic disaster to death from a controllable virus to watching a fool spew nonsense by Tweet instead of actually doing the job of president – something, after nearly four years, he still does not understand. Republicans will lie, cheat, intimidate, and steal to win at all costs. They will say anything to further their "cause", and their cause is to change our form of government.

Looks to like BigBob/rovR** is starting to get worried? Why just last week it was “stick a fork in him, he’s WELL DONE”! Now, seven days later he’s dragging out his NAZIS and fascists again along with the “new and improved” “Stack-O-Lies” BigBob is right about one thing, With President Trump and his supporters “their cause is to change our form of government.” Yes, change it back to a “Constitutional Republic” as it was pre-Obama and Dementia Joe! A land where ordinary folks are allowed to flourish and keep the profits of their hard work, ingenuity and self determination. A place free from “mob violence and destruction”. #Re-Elect45, #8644!

Mr Lemons

Democrats/leftists/socialists/Marxists/progressives will do anything to win. To them the ends justify the means. They support and justify the violence/rioting/burning/killing in our streets, until polling shows that Americans are worried about violence/rioting/burning/killing in our streets. They will lie, cheat, intimidate, and steal to win at all costs. They will say anything to further their "cause", and their cause is to change our form of government.

Just like you best buddy Steve Scalise who doctored a Biden video from an interview with ALS Ady Barkan. Now that is Republican we can all wrap our arms around. Such a proud moment for the party!

“The only national emergency is that our president is an idiot,” Ann Coulter 02/16/19

I never thought I would see the day I’d actually agree with him/her?

Shocker! Havasu’s favorite little “Demorat” spreading love this fine morning! Good work, Bobby!
