Is There A Secret Trump Vote?

I worry there are many Trump voters afraid to admit it to friends, neighbors, family and pollsters. Can’t figure out how Biden camp can measure and manage that. It’s a black hole.

The undecided numbers in these big Biden polls worry me. Think it best to assume they’re secret Trump voters and proceed accordingly.

My hunch is somehow friends, family of Trump leaners need to begin a difficult discussion with them. An intervention to save our nation.

  1. kudos to the editorial board of Daily News for their new project today, the 99th day:

    99 reasons to dump Trump: Taking the measure of the man and his record before Election Day

  2. One thought is that the forty percent approval turns into forty percent voting for SFB.  That is about ten over the thirty percent of the voters who are republican.  That would be indies who are racist joining the greedy old perverts.  The Dems have their thirty percent wrapped up, if they bother to vote.  Then add ten percent of the indies who are mostly Dem voters but will go r if they do not care for the Dem in the election.  So once again we are looking at needing eleven percent of the indies to join in and vote Dem.  The problem is peeling off enough r’s in the middle and south to get a couple of states electoral college votes. 
     
    Once Biden is elected it is time to offer up a new Amendment to the Constitution to eliminate the electoral college.

  3. Woo hoo
    Yes
    And those in the secret society are very much aware of this huge and meaningful secret vote!
    As the media bias continues to be so severe the secret vote becomes stronger and much larger!
    Donald j Trump will win in 2020 and he is just now starting his pivot to really begin campaigning.
    And after the third debate Mr Biden will be exposed!
    God bless you all and hope you have a good day
     
     
     
     

  4. Mr. Biden will be exposed?  Oooh, secret  campaign plans.  How clever. Let me go get a copy of NY Daily News to see what’s coming. And tRump’s failings are here in clear focus. 

  5. A friend recently asked me why I used the term “thought police” (TP) on FB.  It took me a long time to answer.  Without going through a lot of detail about the media and front page rioters, all I can say is that the TP is a real thing that prevents many people from speaking their mind.  Craig is correct about the right being afraid to voice their opinion because of what I will call some people’s hysterical response.  I know the right has set up armed camps on federal property (in the middle of nowhere), a few have run over people, some waive guns around, and the like, etc.   But they demonstrate without rioting, stealing, and assaulting some people and the police.  In other words, the right remains (mostly) peaceful and quiet, and to repeat Craig, they keep their opinions to themselves.  The politically positioned Dems are killing the party with lunatic decisions (police defunding), permitting riots,  and willy-nilly giving in to the less than one percent of the population that drives the TP.  I have been a registered Dem for about 40 years and am beginning to wonder why.  Biden ain’t on the top of the ticket, the TP and his VP will be running things.  And, I predict Biden will never-ever get involved in a debate with POTUS.  What the devil was the party thinking when they decided he goes on the top of the ticket?  Someone please tell me.

  6. Well, you see, Pilar, they had these things called “primary elections”, and a majority of voters voted for Biden.  So, that’s how he got to the “top of the ticket”.

  7. yep, it’s beginning to look a lot like 1968 all over again.   when will we ever learn? 

  8. Only idiots and assholes would vote for Trump after these last disastrous four years.
     
    Oh no, did i alienate some independents? Go ahead and vote to spite people on the internet- it’s your funeral!

  9. Have you tried talking to Trump voters, Craig?  They’re all terribly under/misinformed, immediately start whining about how they can’t speak sincerely (i.e. say racist shit), and then conclude how they only want the best for everybody and are tired of discussing politics.
     
    It’s the same discussion, every time, with every one of them.  None so blind.
     
    Ok, bye.

  10.  Bink – I know one restaurant owner who thinks SFB is a good leader, flawed because he lets himself be limited by his aides.  He is very unhappy about any limits to having people visit his eatery and does not believe there is a COVID-19.  His only concentration is on making money whether or not his customers die.  Every time I talk to him I come away with what must appear to be a stunned look with jaw dropped and eyes staring into the darkness of life.  But, he is one porthole into the hell that must be the alternative universe.
     

  11. Ping you think it will take 3 debates to reveal Joe, while Lardius’ failures are in plain sight. 

    Both President Trump’s advisers and operatives laboring to defeat him increasingly agree on one thing: The best way for him to regain his political footing is to wrest control of the coronavirus.

    In the six months since the deadly contagion was first reported in the United States, Trump has demanded the economy reopen and children return to school, all while scrambling to salvage his reelection campaign.

    But both allies and opponents agree he has failed at the one task that could help him achieve all of his goals — confronting the pandemic with a clear strategy and consistent leadership.

    Trump’s shortcomings have perplexed even some of his most loyal allies, who increasingly have wondered why the president has not at least pantomimed a sense of command over the crisis or conveyed compassion for the millions of Americans impacted by it.
    (Continues)

    But he’s working on his slice, oh, and having federal LE folks gas American citizens protesting for BLM (First Amendment, anyone?) – with agents that can’t be used in war. 

  12. “It’s the same discussion, every time, with every one of them.  None so blind.”

    Bink
    Spot on as usual. I have so many Republican clients. Some will tell me he’s an asshole and many other things but most with the exception of 3 are voting for him again. Still i have hope as 3 i do know aren’t voting for him again. All because of his incompetence on Covid. Oh, but how they all overlook all his crimes I’ll never get it.

  13. I stirred the pot just a bit, and as I wrote, the TP came out with attack comments.  Blue Bronc had it, “…its about the economy….” (that from President Clinton).   Give people a paycheck and they could give a “rat’s butt” about who is in the White House.  There is nothing more I would like to see than another JFK, but no, all I see in my party are a bunch of hysterical nuts.  Exactly how much lower to the bottom of the barrel can my party go?  Prop him on up TP’s, you’re trying to make chicken salad out of chicken s…, and it ain’t gonna work.

  14. Pilar…..if you are beginning to wonder why you are a democrat it simply makes you, for all practical purposes, a republican.  Good luck with that.

  15. As for “thought police” the closest evidence of that is if your thoughts should differ from the president’s you get fired.   

  16. I do wonder how long the right would have stayed “peaceful” if the Bundy’s had been attacked by police for their armed occupation of a federal building.   They were instead arrested —alive— and acquitted, after having received “care packages” of food and necessities.

  17. bloomberg:

    President Donald Trump’s National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien has tested positive for Covid-19, according to people familiar with his situation.
    O’Brien has been out of the office since late last week, one of the people said.
    O’Brien came down with the coronavirus after a family event and has been isolating at home while still running the National Security Council, doing most of his work by phone, according to one of the people.
    […]
    O’Brien is the closest official to Trump to develop the novel coronavirus, as the pandemic continues to surge with infections and deaths on the rise in many U.S. states.

  18. Pilar has a point.
    Also let me add
    The Democrats have a problem as these  protest go on far too long. We are in the “revolution for the hell of it” phase. Now they are just protesting to be protesting and falling into the Republican trap. The choice more and more is forming around a choice between Trump and anarchy. If the Democrats allow that to be the choice then they lose. Right now it looks as if the Democrats are doing their best to screw up. It is hard to believe but that is what I’m seeing.
    Jack

  19. That’s valid as a “scenario construct“, but I think it will not hold true now because I feel that the great majority of our people now see this Law and Order cry for what it is; blatant attempt to pander to their solid base and keep them on board amidst the virus and economic upheavals while working feverishly to firmly grasp all the levers of power; while allowing the Russians to run amok with our institutions.
    The people, against their desires, are more aware now than they were for Nixon and Reagan.  They know what swastikas are and who are brandishing them and their confederate flags. They know.   And they rationally fear that much more than the manufactured and constructed narrative of Socialist Anarchy on Desolation Row.

  20. You can fool all of the people some of the time; and you can fool some of the people all of the time; but you can’t fool all of the people all of the time. 
    Still holds true. 

  21. Now, I’ll join Bink at a picnic table outside the tavern with a mug of ale all around. 

    One mug—for EVERYBODY !
    —Richard Pryor

  22. That’s just my opinion, on the other side of the fence from Pilar’s and Jack’s thoughtful comments.  We’ll see how it shakes out, but there are way more than just democrats on this particular ride.

  23. oh yeah…  because we all know that all of those agitators are from the left.  I mean….  like….  people from the right wouldn’t be causing any of it.  we all know the right isn’t into dirty tricks….   no…  that’s never been done before.
     
    Craig…  every one I know from around here who still loves trump ain’t exactly shy about it…

  24. MLB has a bit of a problem, about half the Phillies are down with COVID-19.  OBTW they had to cancel the game and go into quarantine.  I wonder how long the season will be.  Next up is when will NFL begin its fun time?  Hockey has one thing going for it, everyone will wear a faceshield.  Okay, that won’t last long either.

    edit:
    We can add the Marlins to the MLB teams going to the locker room quarantine with COVID-19. Too bad, just when people were ready to get infected again.

  25. Renee
    It doesn’t matter who is doing it the Democrats are getting blamed. If these protest last until the fall, Trump wins, The republicans keep the senate. RBG passes away….. 
    Jack

  26. BTW, There are Trump supporters proudly flying the flag and Craig is right in that there are people who will vote Trump while telling themselves they aren’t like those other people.  How many? I don’t know. But they are out there.
    Jack

  27. BTW, in our neighborhood the ones who proudly fly the Trump flag, are really really dumb fks. But their vote counts the same as mine.
    Jack

  28. BlueBronc…  with all the moving around from city to city, methinks MLB probably will get shutdown.  But hockey…  is going to be played in Canada only.  I think that sport has a chance.
     
    Jack…  of course all that matters is perception.  And the perception of trump as an incompetent moron isn’t going away either.   

  29. FWIW polling from 2 weeks ago showed support for the BLM protests and against SFB according to an article in Vanity Fair.

    If Donald Trump loses in the fall, the first week of June might have marked the beginning of the end. On June 1, with the country consumed by historic protests against racism and police brutality, some of them violent, Trump decided to position himself as the “law-and-order” president, made clear by his tweets and his now infamous march that evening across Lafayette Square, outside the White House. His path cleared by the National Guard and D.C. police who used chemical agents on lawfully assembled protesters and roughed up journalists, Trump walked across the street to stand in front of St. John’s Episcopal Church for an inscrutable and buffoonish photo op, in which he held up a Bible and said nothing much at all about the cities on fire and the country’s dismal legacy of racism. “We have a great country,” Trump said. “That’s my thoughts.” The moment was an emblem of Trump’s presidency: attention-seeking, bereft of empathy, gut over strategy. It was so embarrassing and borderline anti-American that one of his generals, Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman Mark Milley, apologized for participating in the walk and reportedly considered resigning. Like so many of Trump’s decisions, it was a sugar-high tactic designed to please his base and get TV ratings, with almost no thought about the larger sweep of American history, let alone his reelection campaign.

    Politically, it was a disaster. In the days that followed, Trump’s approval ratings tumbled to their lowest point in over a year, and their lowest point of the coronavirus pandemic, according to FiveThirtyEight’s poll tracker. The first two weeks of June also saw Trump fall even further behind his Democratic rival, Joe Biden. Before June, Biden steadily held a four-to-six-point lead over Trump in national polls, fueled in part by massive support among the independent voters whom Trump won in 2016. Shortly after Lafayette Square, though, Biden began to open up an even bigger lead, a nine-point average lead over the president, with a Washington Post–ABC News poll this week showing Biden winning by as many as 15 points.

    Trump’s reaction to the protests was not the only reason for his summer collapse. Most pollsters say that Trump’s continuing inability to respond to the coronavirus pandemic, and the economic havoc that’s come with it, has been the dominant factor. And last week, for the first time, polls began to show Biden beating Trump on the question of who would best handle the economy, the only decent card left in Trump’s deck. But if Trump loses in November, the nationwide protests against racism and police brutality that erupted in early June have to be seen as a significant breaking point. Not just because they threw an exhausted nation into even more chaos, and not just because they forced Trump into the most astoundingly dumb photo op in presidential history, surpassing George W. Bush’s “Mission Accomplished!” blunder. In fact, new polling and research provided toVanity Fairsuggests that the protests themselves changed America’s opinions about race so quickly, and so profoundly, that Trump unknowingly planted himself even further on the wrong side of public opinion than previously understood.

    * * * 

    Avalanche found resounding support for the protests not just among Biden supporters, but among persuadable voters and even soft Trump supporters. The hardcore Vote Trump respondents were against the protests, with 56% opposing them. But among the softer Lean Trump set, an eye-opening 59% said the protesters were “completely right” or “somewhat right”—probably not what the president had in mind when he commandeered Lafayette Square. And 72% of Americans with Mixed Feelings about the presidential race—precious undecided voters—said the protesters were right too. “There’s not a lot of issues where you get even a strong majority of Americans on the same page,” said Michiah Prull,the CEO of Avalanche. “It speaks to that historic moment, and it speaks to a degree of national alignment on something that’s honestly pretty rare these days.”
    (Continues)

    Yes, much has changed since the dispatch of fed agents two weeks ago, e.g. the protests have gotten more violent (at least so they are portrayed in the media), they have been declared riots in Seattle and in Portland, so it’s hard to say what similar polling might say today.  Jack you could be right, but still, I don’t think that the turnabout over the last few days is as beneficial to Lardius as some suggest.  

  30. I hate to hear about the likely problems with MLB restarting.  I really do miss sports – even MLB (not a big baseball fan in general, but it’s one thing that I’d watch from time to time) and the Johnsonville Cornhole series is not my idea of sports.

  31. LOL. 
    Trump national security adviser Robert O’Brien, member of the coronavirus task force, tests positive for the coronavirus; highest-ranking administration official known to be infected  
    I’m sure he was a strict adherent to the task force mask/social distancing recommendations. 

  32. Also…  NFL Network has been replaying games all summer long.  Last night, Rick and I watched the replay of the last Super Bowl between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers (for like the 4th time 🙂

  33. But let’s send the kiddies back to school ASAP.   The one Republican here that I can talk politics with used to say that SFB was fine, he just said stupid stuff and needed to shut up.  Now, that person is just so tired of politics and social unrest.  Yep, they’ll prolly vote for him.
     
    Let us hope the Lincoln Project does that peeling off of repeat, SFB voters. 
    I still think things will be bad enough (and they will realize tRUMP is to blame), and, they will stay home.

  34. sturge, yes, as you say there’s “stirring the pot” and “throwing up flak” but there’s also sh*tting in and f*cking up same.

    other phrases that come to mind: jumping the shark and methinks thou dost protest too much 

    beware the syndrome of sixty-eight

  35. here’s what they said about it

    July 27th, 2020 – The Lincoln Project released a new video today, “Conservative,” the second to feature former Navy SEAL Dan Barkhuff calling for conservatives to vote for Joe Biden.

    Barkhuff, first featured in The Lincoln Project’s “Betrayed,” returns to remind Republicans that Biden will conserve the cornerstones of our nation — the rule of law, the American Dream, and the tenets laid out in our Constitution.

    “President Trump is lost. He’s lashing out, and has resorted to displays of force in American cities to fire up his base,” said Reed Galen, co-founder of The Lincoln Project. He continued, “While Donald Trump thinks federal thugs harassing peaceful American citizens makes him look strong, all we see is weakness.”

    All Americans must be vigilant in protecting the rights that Donald Trump seeks to destroy. He knows his days are numbered and, as we approach November 3rd, his attacks will become even more aggressive.

  36. wapo:

    An Army National Guard officer who witnessed protesters forcibly removed from Lafayette Square last month is contradicting claims by the attorney general and the Trump administration that they did not speed up the clearing to make way for the president’s photo opportunity minutes later.
    A new statement by Adam DeMarco, an Iraq veteran who now serves as a major in the D.C. National Guard, also casts doubt on the claims by acting Park Police Chief Gregory Monahan that violence by protesters spurred Park Police to clear the area at that time with unusually aggressive tactics. DeMarco said that “demonstrators were behaving peacefully” and that tear gas was deployed in an “excessive use of force.”
    DeMarco backs up law enforcement officials who told The Washington Post they believed the clearing operation would happen after the 7 p.m. curfew that night — but it was dramatically accelerated after Attorney General William P. Barr and others appeared in the park around 6 p.m. Monahan has said the operation was conducted so that a fence might be erected around the park. DeMarco said the fencing materials did not arrive until 9 p.m. — hours after Barr told the Park Police to expand the perimeter — and the fence wasn’t built until later that night.
    DeMarco’s account of events also reveals for the first time the details of the visit that Gen. Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, made to Lafayette Square just before the move on protesters — and the warning he gave his troops.
    Milley, who had arrived in the park with Barr about 30 minutes before the clearing, warned DeMarco to keep officers from going overboard. “General Milley told me to ensure that National Guard personnel remained calm, adding that we were there to respect the demonstrators’ First Amendment rights,” DeMarco said.
    […]
    “The hearing comes at an interesting time, during the protests in Portland and Seattle,” said Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.), chair of the natural resources committee, “and the presence of both police and ICE in those areas. What happened at Lafayette Square was kind of a precursor to the escalations this administration is using, the using of federal law enforcement, the contemplation of use of the military in these communities.”

  37. I loved this from a poster at Wapo called Jdwkley:

    Who would have thought that a huckster, scam artist real estate slum lord with a history of misogyny, xenophobia, racism, sexism, fraud, adultery, tax cheating and bloviation would be a terrible person, horrible as president and a really awful everything else.

    Man, if that doesn’t sum it up, nothing does.
     
    Oh, I watch some sports reruns – SEC network has reruns of college football games w/ SEC teams as well as other sports, and there’re similar channels for other conferences and NBA (bubble scrimmages) and NFL, but It’s really not like watching a game in real time, It’s just not.  There’s some live Tennis and Golf, but…still.  

  38. No one, as yet, has any control over the protests.  It’s not like a certain leader can say “ok let’s stop with the protesting now”.Most can see the protests as having potentially deleterious effects , but those things bubble and boil with a life of their own, and most can see that the Secret Police are exacerbating, escalating, inflaming, adding fuel to the fire, perpetuating ad infinootus  
     

  39. They whispered in my ear, “You’re jumping the shark.”  I turned to look at them and said, “The shark jumped me—a long time ago.”

  40. Sturge, Ain’t no Abbie Hoffmans or Jerry Rubins associated with this stuff, although it’s being portrayed as if this is the equivalent of the 1968 DNC convention protests. No MC5 either.  

  41. OT –
    Throw this piece of roadkill  into the electoral  stew ………… 

    It’s not a great month to be running a utility company. Last week, Ohio Republican House Speaker Larry Householder’s farm was raided as part of an FBI investigation into a $61 million conspiracy between GOP leadership and the utility FirstEnergy to pass a wide-ranging bailout for coal and nuclear plants that also kneecapped the state’s clean energy and energy efficiency measures. In brief, House Bill 6 put Ohioans on the hook for propping up power plants that would otherwise have shut down. In the wake of the arrests, even Republican Governor Mike DeWine is now calling for its repeal. 

    Fossil Fuels’ United Front Is Crumbling
    State politics show the coal industry is fighting a losing battle against its former allies.
    https://newrepublic.com/article/158624/fossil-fuels-united-front-crumbling
     

  42. Hey old man, Householder sounds like he’s in a heap of trouble.  Good. I can’t stand First Energy (our electric company) or Ohio Republicans (the idiots who ran Mrs. P’s Mom’s former state) and this just makes me think I’m right.

  43. Pogo –
    This story is a real  interesting  ingredient in the election in Ohio .  I am waiting for “Putin’s Orange Poodle”  to attack the FBI over this.  Trust me , he won’t be able to control himself. 

  44. From Ben Guarino in the Wapo continuing coverage of the protests:

    In a letter addressed to congressional leaders Monday, the Democratic mayors of six cities — Albuquerque, Chicago, Kansas City, Mo., Portland, Ore., Seattle and Washington, D.C. — urged legislators to pass a law to establish that the recent deployment of federal troops to cities is “unlawful and repugnant.”

    The letter criticized the Trump administration for sending federal agents to cities such as Portland that have been the site of widespread demonstrations against police brutality. Those troops have patrolled streets “way outside of their lawful jurisdiction,” said the letter, which Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler (D) posted to Twitter on Monday afternoon.

    “We are outraged that the administration has responded to these First Amendment-protected gatherings by authorizing the deployment of riot-gear clad forces … without the consent of local authorities,” the letter read.

    The mayors requested that congressional action require federal agents, excepting those in field offices working on current cases, to obtain consent from local authorities; visibly identify themselves and their vehicles unless undercover; and limit “crowd control” actions to protecting federal property.

    The letter was sent to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.).

    Whatever happened to that gotta be invited thing ShitakeBrains talked about last week?

  45. Sturge, Renee
    I’m with you all the way! Oh and this crying about the state of the Democratic Party 99 days from the most important election ever is not helpful.
    I’m happy with the state of my party. Not going there as it helps Trump and those criminal Republicans.
    Bitching about Biden being at the top of the ticket is nonsense. He wasn’t my choice but he is now. I’m all in.

  46. OM(CB) I imagine you are right.  Householder shouldn’t have oughta paid for improvements to his Florida home with campaign funds. Something about that sounds illegal. Be interested to see him attack the deep state FBI and go all Friend of Coal in Ohio since he appears to be a schosh behind Biden there in current polls. Oh, and lest I forget, Kudos to Cleveland.com for punning on him – saying that until he rose to the Leader of the Ohio House in 2019 he wasn’t really a household name. Nyuck, nyuck.

  47. https://www.texastribune.org/2020/07/27/texas-greg-abbott-early-voting-november/
    Well, we won’t have mail-in ballots, but Gov. Abbott has extended early voting by six days.   Texans can now vote against Orange Julius starting October 13th!    
    If, IF, they can find enough folks to staff all of the polling places, it should allow for shorter lines.   Some counties couldn’t open all of the polling places for the July run-off, due to staffing issues.  That could cause confusion if one’s normal site isn’t open, and, it could be an obstacle to those without transportation who would need to go somewhere outside of their neighborhood. 
     

  48. POGO
    Thanks for that Vanity Fair piece. I don’t see Trump turning this around regardless of how many protests there are. He can’t turn COVID around or the economy. Trump has the FED juiced stock market and how much of the voting population has a stake there? Trump deserves a massive defeat. Fingers crossed!

  49. For the first time in Florida, I received a letter to receive my ballot by mail. Easy self-addressed return envelope. I guess because of COVID. I can’t believe these wack Republican’s that run this state allowed it. 

  50.  Craig – I saw the photo spread just now and am very happy that the Bidens did come by.  The optics are so heavy and strong.  I am very sure that Biden remembered his work and contacts with Rep. Lewis while saying good-bye. 

  51. June 1967 – A fundraiser for LBJ in LA . I saw protesters fall off the freeway overpasses . The Cheviot Hotel has a curved shape . Every room had balcony they were all standing there watching a riot . Drinking white wine . These folks were Democrats. The LA PD beat the sh!t out of everyone they could hit.

  52. It seems to me that Dems can be helped by the memory of FDR right now, given heartless (wealthy) Republicans who are intent on seeing that unemployed Americans are homeless and hungry.   They want to back the federal stipend from $600 to $200/week.   And, they only want to do that much because it’s too complicated to administer a weekly stipend of 70% of income.  Heaven forbid that someone get $10 too much.   I’d like to see them try to live on 70% of minimum wage plus whatever their state pays to someone earning minimum wage. In Texas, the low end of the state payments is $69/week.  
    The greediness and stinginess of Republicans might also help win over white, rural voters.   Nobody talks about poor, white folks.   Dems might want to reach out to that group. 

  53. Hello Craig!
    I hope all is well with you.  Sadly I was hoping to have a nice discussion but this site has such angry people that cannot have an argument.  To the old timers I wish you well but good bye again for now.
    Craig,  I know you cannot control the limited thoughts that some project, or can you?

  54. Craig, there are people in Texas I’ve known for 19 years who are just now saying they hate Trump. Everything’s a Jim Crow secret here and no one says much of anything political.  So I wouldn’t be surprised about the reverse of what you said in your initial post. 

  55. The Cult of Selfishness Is Killing America The right has made irresponsible behavior a key principle.

    America’s response to the coronavirus has been a lose-lose proposition.
    The Trump administration and governors like Florida’s Ron DeSantis insisted that there was no trade-off between economic growth and controlling the disease, and they were right — but not in the way they expected.
    Premature reopening led to a surge in infections: Adjusted for population, Americans are currently dying from Covid-19 at around 15 times the rate in the European Union or Canada. Yet the “rocket ship” recovery Donald Trump promised has crashed and burned: Job growth appears to have stalled or reversed, especially in states that were most aggressive about lifting social distancing mandates, and early indications are that the U.S. economy is lagging behind the economies of major European nations.
    So we’re failing dismally on both the epidemiological and the economic fronts. But why?

  56. bid -I look at the greedy old pervert party as two levels.  The top level, which gets the money, are the holier than thou types, multiple mistresses to take care of, multiple homes, and a great desire to die with more money then any one else.  The others who are republican are white racists and misogynists, including the group called evangelical. 

  57. Sturg, 🙄. 
    Ping has become the blog equivalent of a photobomber. Drop in, take a verbal crap then run the fuck away. Don’ sweat it. 

  58. michael steele had some good advice for especially the BLM and other local justice protesters to take the wind out of the stormtrumpers photos. 

    he suggested they keep on protesting but just avoid being anywhere near a federal building (guess that would also include fed monuments & post offices).  the stormtrumpers supposedly are being sent out by the Rump to protect fed property so if fed property isn’t in jeopardy with no one in range there goes his campaign ad, but the protesters still get to protest their hearts out every where else in the city and make news without letting him use them.

  59. Something I used to post nearly everyday ………. Josey Wales: Hell is coming to breakfast

     

  60. The Department of the HellScape arrested peaceful moms who were protecting protestors.   Defund the DHS.  tRUMP’s goons are attacking American mothers.  The just want to whip up fear in the base; they don’t care if it’s unconstitutional.  Anything for campaign footage.   

  61. So, it’s not a hiatus violation to post the best album i’ve ever heard (listen in entirety, or not at all, plz, all instrumental).

    (moon music)

  62. God bless us all, we’re  gonna need his mercy .  And I don’t believe there is  a God  . 
    That’s where  we are. 

  63. I believe  there is an  intelligence,   a wisdom . But it aint  God . It’s bigger than that.
