        1. You can only do so much when you’re given a bad hand from the previous president, but you can make it seem like you’re working wonders when given something good from the previous.

          1. No, you can only do so much BADLY to ruin the prosperous economy engineered by President Trump’s policies that started, pay attention, on Day One of the Biden’s first day in office.

            Clueless Democrat Apologist — your excuses cannot change facts…

          2. dantheman827,

            Biden destroyed the economy
            Biden destroyed the stock market
            Biden destroyed gas prices
            Biden destroyed the border
            Biden destroyed inflation
            Etc., Etc., Etc., Etc., Etc.,

            YOU are a delusional idiot.

            1. The problem with all of those assertions is that none of those things happen in a vacuum. Each and every President enters office with a set of problems. Trump started with the country on an upward trajectory in those economic categories, whereas Biden inherited a post-pandemic supply chain nightmare and a war in Eastern Europe that has deeply affected energy prices, which, in turn, ripple throughout the entire global economy. The one thing you can really argue there is how the border has been managed . . . the rest is a lot of conjecture and I don’t know that Trump, Biden or anyone else would’ve fared much better.

      1. Although many Red Wave victories already notched in New York, California, Arkansas, Ohio, Texas, Florida …the control of Congress is not over. We have prolonged counting AGAIN, but did you notice how 100% of the time only favors Democrats…

  1. I love Elon Musk!

    Wish we had somebody like him as Apple CEO today instead of the boring, visionless leftist pontificator Tim Cook who’s foolishly boxed Apple into China.

    1. I know, right?

      I want Apple news, not political news… there’s enough of that everywhere else.

      But hey, at least the site stopped making Edge go crazy claiming that it was malicious.

  2. gregfoxst – couldn’t agree more. Musk has just put the final nail in twiters coffin. He’s gone insane. Next thing he’ll be running for President. USA is converging on full Idiocracy status.

      1. Are you out of your mind… rules… what planet are you actually living on. nevermind rules easliy influenced ‘rightist’ are being fed a diet of lies by the elite right in order to overthrow a wealthy, boring, but sensible Democratic party. Your democracy stinks and it’s the right wing that’s making all the smell!

            1. In Sam’s defense you did just grab the ball and run with it, all the way past the cashiers and to the Walmart parking lot.

              That’s not winning, it’s just being confused about the reality…

            2. To be fair, I made connection with other comments in this tread a ran with it.

              So is being ‘Fucking stupid’ is missing context of an obscure reference.. or is it assuming everyone knows what the fuck your talking about regardless.

            3. \ln,

              The reference is NOT obscure. It’s one of the most basic and well-known rules of this country that every American knows. Which means that you are, in-fact, fucking stupid.

              Stop talking. Your 1st grade teacher lied when she said there is no such thing as a wrong opinion. Spreading your stupidity only makes stupid people more stupid.
              Stop breeding. This country needs less stupid kids, not more.
              Stop voting. The opinion of fucking idiots is what destroyed the country.

            4. Ah… my son whos in the 1st grade would give a better come back! 🤣

              Becky, yes it is obscure. I am not an American nor do I live there. Thank God. You need to realise that the world does not revolve around you.

              So, tell you what. I’ll ask my nieces child. They live the in states and he’s a first grader… I guarantee he’ll look at me blankly.

            5. Sam, TT, and Becky…

              And TT is the smart, and gracious one…

              Welcome to the Republican Nationalist Party. They would say “Heil”, but don’t know what it means, so they stick with “yeeeee haaaa!”.

    1. Wow — the richest man in the world banned a stand-up comic. How brave and noble… and what a step on behalf of free speech. And THAT is worth celebrating?? Sheesh.

  3. Harmonic Convergence: RED RECKONING in the sky come Election Day.

    The Blood Moon’s disappearing act in a morning total eclipse will not be seen for another three years.

    The Democrat politicians disappearing act in election DEFEAT will be seen immediately and totality will last LONGER than three years.


    1. Sadly on the West Coast voting Republican’s not going to make a hill’s bit of difference. The Democrats have such a stranglehold on higher offices that the only way anyone with an R after their name can get in would be to run as a Democrat then switch parties. Here in Washington we have to idiot senators and a Governor that is a complete laughingstock.

      1. “Sadly on the West Coast voting Republican’s not going to make a hill’s bit of difference.”

        Your guess is as good as mine, except I don’t guess. Because of the worst president in history ruining the economy, totally hapless and no clue what to do, RED RECKONING will have an IMPACT EVERYWHERE.

        The question remains, will it be enough to flip entrenched Democrat strongholds across the USA…
