    Biden has his shortcomings and is flawed like any other political figure. He's made his mistakes and I'm sure he'd be the first to admit where he's faltered in his career. But one thing is certain: he's not a self-interested, duplicitous, narcissistic, dishonest, bigoted, hateful turd like Trump is. Not even close.

    And John Yoo is back, advising Trump. ” “Alka Pradhan, a defence counsel in the 9/11 terrorism cases against inmates in the Guantánamo Bay prison camp, said: “John Yoo’s so-called reasoning has always been based on ‘What can the president get away with?’ rather than ‘What is the purpose and letter of the law “The fact that John Yoo is employed and free to opine on legal matters is an example of the culture of impunity in the United States,” she said.” Obama completely screwed that up. And it was obvious at the time. And it is partly why we have trump. The Republicans will just keep pushing the limit of their criminal culture until someone stops them, with jail time punishment. Shame, and reputation are irrelevant, as is collegiality.

    Stahl tells Pence he and Trump 'insulted 60 Minutes' by giving '"campaign speeches" https://thehill.com/homenews/administration/522307-stahl-tells-pence-he-and-trump-insulted-60-minutes-by-giving-campaign Good for her. Btw, CBS News said earlier this week that the White House agreed that they would tape the interview “for archival purposes only.” First mistake: taking this White House at their word.

    So, debate bingo: 3 cards, one Trump, one Biden, one moderator Trump - 1. “You’ve never seen/heard“ or “no one’s ever done anything like this ever” - CHECK 2. Greatest economy ever - CHECK 3. refers to COVID as China flu, Wuhan virus or some other foreign label - CHECK (plague from China) 4. The phrase “sleepy Joe“ or “cognitive decline” (nope) 5. “Most corrupt“ politician or family in reference to Biden - almost CHECK (left out the “most”) 6. Hillary - CHECK 7. Obama (pick a random bonus square if he drops in the middle name Hussein somewhere) - CHECK (no bonus) 8. Antifa (nope) 9. Protect the suburbs (nope) 10. Radical left (I debated adding a reference to “the squad”, which he did do, but no to the specific phrase) 11. Rioters, looters, burning, and Democrat run cities all in the same single answer. - close, but no 12. Rigged election (no) 13. Hunter Biden e-mail scandal (take any bonus square if this comes up in his first 10 minutes of speaking time) - CHECK (in a roundabout way, no bonus) 14. Gets into it in any way with the moderator, either by arguing, unfair question complaint, cutting them off - CHECK, did talk over her when she wanted to move on 15. interrupts while Biden is speaking (even with the mute button feature, this is your “free space”), or mentions “mute button” and “unfair” in the same sentence - CHECK Biden - 1. “He doesn’t have a plan” (bonus square if he replaces the word “plan” with “clue”) - CHECK 2. “Soul of America”, “return to integrity” or “decency” (said “character of the nation”, last sentence had “decency” - CHECK 3. Mentions Hunter, even if to deflect from the issue (no) 4. Apologizes for/ acknowledges any past errors in his political career - CHECK 5. Says something knee-jerk nasty about Trump after being goaded (not really, worst he did was “give me a break”) 6. Apologizes for knee-jerk nasty comment (no) 7. Drops the word “man” out of context (ex. says “look,man” as opposed to “this man here”) - looks like I should have gone with “c’mon” 8. Mentions Obama - CHECK 9. Mentions Kamala (no) 10. Answers a question WITHOUT gesturing with both of his hands at the same time - CHECK (but at least one hand all the time, don’t recall him answering without using his hands) 11. Trump’s national COVID failure (Free space) - CHECK 12. Health care (bonus square if he ties this and the Supreme Court issue together) - CHECK (but moderator tied it to Supreme Court, he did not mention them both together) 13. “Worst President” or “most corrupt” President (no, but did say “criminal”) 14. References the fact Trump himself had COVID in any way - CHECK 15. Makes a comment about the mute button in reference to Trump (no) Moderator- 1. Live time fact checks any answer (will accept “That’s not true” as a fact check) - CHECK 2. Says”I’m sorry” in any context (no, was forceful when she interjected) 3. Asks Trump about his taxes or China bank account - CHECK 4. Asks Biden about stacking the Supreme Court (no) 5. Election interference - CHECK 6. Interrupts a candidate mid-answer to get them to answer the real question and not what the candidate wants to say - CHECK (In fact she warned Trump before he started to answer the “talk to black people”, and Trump still did not answer the question) 7. Interrupts a candidate mid-answer to remind the other candidate not to interrupt (Bonus square if they make mention of the agreed upon “debate rules” as part of their chiding) (no) 8. Asks a follow-up question to pin a candidate down on a wish-washy answer (this may be the one that prevents a blackout card) - CHECK 9. COVID (free space) - CHECK 10. “Let’s move on” (bonus square if either candidate returns back to the previous topic right after the new topic is brought up) - CHECK (no bonus) 11. Allows either candidate to ask their opponent a question on an unrelated topic instead of cutting them off - CHECK, but she did a good job many time’s of not allowing it, only let it happen on the Crime bill 12. Reminds us that there is an audience who will stay quiet throughout the proceedings - CHECK 13. Mentions the mute button - CHECK 14. Reminds either candidate a second time about the mute button as a warning or threat 15. Has to tell a candidate more than once during an answer that they are out of time - CHECK Obviously missed a few options, any obvious ones I could replace with something better?

    Miller is a ******* stealth snake. Guy is all over the White House immigration policy but nowhere on the record. Real mob style operator. I'm wondering who he sees holding him accountable for what he's done. Back in 2008 I seriously wanted the DOJ to put John Yoo on trial, but I trusted Obama when he said that we needed to turn that page. No more. I want Miller to be testifying under oath before Congress about what he did in the White House. Trump is in the crosshairs of a lots and lots of gunfighter prosecutors who want to put his notch on their irons, so I'm pretty sure that guy is gonna see a cell, but Miller is the guy I really don't want to get away.

    “Our democracy is not gonna work if the people who are supposed to be our leaders lie every day and just make things up,” Obama said. “This notion of truthfulness, and democracy and citizenship and being responsible. These aren't Republican or Democratic principles, they’re American principles. … And we need to reclaim them.”

    Stealing children is an aspect of a fascist state. The savage dictatorship in Argentina did it. “A particular aspect of the terror involved kidnapping pregnant women and taking them to secret detention centers where they were held until they had their babies. After giving birth, the mothers were killed and the babies were given to families that wanted children and that had close ties to the government. The children of people deemed subversive by the government were also kidnapped. Approximately 220 babies were raised in adopted homes as a result of these brutal practices.” Part of regaining some trust from the world will be jail for the scum responsible for this. And not just some low level grunt doing what they were told. This had high level approval. Could be Stephen Miller, getting a bit concerned at this point. They just cant do the Obama “forward not back” . b.s.

    Watching with interest....a lot of Banana Republicans, in the last couple of weeks......inching and crawling their way....away from Donald J. Trump Well, over the last four years, they ignored one chance after another to stand up to Trump. Turned a blind eye (or simply averted their gaze) to Trump's xenophobia, conspiracy theories, exploitation of racial divisions, and personal corruption..... all the while, swallowing his insults. Former staunch critics like Ted Cruz and Lindsay Graham, morphed into total bootlicking MAGA men. Not that there was any shortage of opportunities to make at least some sort of a stand.....to name just a few: Denigrating American allies and cozening up to dictators Muslim ban End run around the Legislative branch to fund some of his Wall (all 6 new miles of it) Downplaying Russian attacks on elections, throwing US intelligence agencies under the bus, for Putin, at Helsinki Separating families at the border, putting kids in cages Bypassing the Senate to name multiple acting Cabinet members, against the law Helping the Saudis and their bone saw Prince, cover up the murder of a Washington Post Journalist Calling American soldiers “suckers and losers.” Trying to extort the Ukrainian president to help Trump dig up dirt on a political opponent Gutting the ranks of inspectors general, to stifle genuine accountability of the executive branch, Calling on his Attorney General to jail political opponents Teargassing peaceful protesters, to make room for a photo-op Not allowing witnesses or evidence at Trump's Impeachment Trial All this, of course.... without even going into all the lies, deception, coverups and willful ignorance by Trump and many in his administration, which led to the disastrous US response on Covid. Which, in terms of denying science and spreading disinformation, and displaying total hypocrisy..... still continues to this day. Do these people really think it is going to be that easy to wash all that stink off? Pretend that Trump was just the guy who brought the red hats and the tanning oil? Or hope that history will somehow fail to record and narrate their total cowardliness and lack of integrity? My advice to these GOP flunkies.....is to just shut up, and prepare to take the medicine.
