    We'll keep this stutter thing in mind if he becomes President.

    I remember one instance when Reagan was in some country and in the middle of his speech he has to ask his assistant to tell him which country they are in.
    As usual you're bouncing all over the place like a pinball....

    Why oh WHY do I keep doing this to myself?

    • Tucker Carlson Claims He's Going To Leave 'Fallen Man' Hunter Biden Alone Now

      Fox News host Tucker Carlson, who has speculated for the last month about alleged corruption surrounding the overseas business dealings of Hunter Biden, insisted on Thursday evening that he didn’t want to be involved in “pounding on a man, jumping on and piling on when he’s already down.”

      This change in Carlson’s rhetoric comes after the conservative pundit claimed on Wednesday that Fox News had acquired a number of “damning” documents about Joe Biden’s son from a source, only to have the material allegedly disappear when it was shipped cross-country.

      UPS announced one day later that the flash drive containing the documents had come out of its packaging, was located by a staffer and eventually turned over to a superior, who arranged for it to be sent to Fox. Carlson was full of questions regarding this explanation and continued to hint at a conspiracy.

      He contended that “someone, for some reason, opened our package and removed a flash drive containing documents that were damaging to the Biden family.”

      “We’d love to know who would do that and why,” said Carlson. “It would be helpful to see the envelope itself. But UPS says we can’t see it because they threw it away. So here we are. We got our flash drive back, and that’s great. What we’d really like are some answers.”

      Following this statement, the Fox host switched gears and began talking about the substance of the documents themselves, saying that the network was still “assessing” them but that much of the material would not be revealed.

      “There are a lot of documents about Hunter Biden’s personal life that we haven’t brought you and that we’re not going to bring you, and we should tell you why,” Carlson said. “One is the obvious answer: He’s not running for president. Hunter Biden is a fallen man at this point. I should also say that I knew Hunter Biden fairly well. We lived near each other in Washington for quite some time. I knew his wife, who’s an absolutely outstanding person, a good person.”

      Carlson continued with this line of reasoning, insisting that he was taking the high road and “never thought Hunter Biden was a bad person” ― despite having devoted Tuesday night to an interview with Tony Bobulinski, a former business partner of Hunter Biden’s who offered up unverified claims that Joe Biden had been involved in his son’s Chinese business dealings.

      “I thought he had demons, though in the time I knew him, he kept them mostly under control,” Carlson said of Hunter Biden. “At some point, he lost control of those demons, and the world knows that now. He’s now humiliated and alone. It’s probably too strong to say we feel sorry for Hunter Biden. But the point is that pounding on a man and piling on him when he’s already down is something that we don’t want to be involved in.”

      President Donald Trump and other right-wing politicians and pundits have repeatedly accused Joe Biden of receiving money from his son’s overseas business dealings, including an alleged $3.5 million from Russia. There has been no evidence to substantiate these claims.

      On the same day as Carlson’s broadcast, NBC News reported that the supposed author of an intelligence document purportedly highlighting the younger Biden’s illicit business dealings was a false persona. That document, which NBC said appeared to come from a fake intelligence firm, “helped lay the groundwork among right-wing media for what would become a failed October surprise: a viral pile-on of conspiracy theories about Hunter Biden.”

        The stutter thing is only a thing because of his age.

        I note they were very quick to jump to his defence.

        Too bad they never do that with Trump.

          Why can't this be another four fun filled years like you said after the 2016 election

            What does that even mean? He's stuttering due to his age?

            Let me repeat myself, yet again: There is no comparison between Donald Trump and Joe Biden.

            • Trump says Biden will take away your electricity, celebrates low Black voter turnout in Wisconsin rally

              President Trump made another visit to the swing state of Wisconsin on Friday evening, bringing some unfounded theories and repetitive rants along with him.

              For starters, Trump celebrated reports that Democratic nominee Joe Biden wasn't driving Black voter turnout, framing it in a way that made it seem like he was happy about the disenfranchisement. "The Black vote is not turning out for him," Trump said of Biden. "They're not showing up to vote and others aren't either."

              Biden's team is worried that he's failed to drive Black and Latino voters to the polls, Bloomberg reports.But far less believable — in fact, actually false — is Trump's claim that Biden will send the U.S. back to the 18th century. "There will be no heating in the winter, no air conditioning in the summer, and no electricity whenever the hell you want it," Trump claimed, for some incomprehensible reason.
              _________

              You this Double Edge ? This shit right here is why the news media isn't quick to defend Donald Trump: HE'S BATSHIT CRAZY.

                He's older so people are saying its dementia.

                Not that it is but looks like it.

                • Walmart pulls firearms, ammunition from U.S. store floors as civil unrest flares | Yahoo | Oct 30 2020


                  Retailers have been on edge after raiders earlier this year smashed windows, stole merchandise and, at times, set stores ablaze in Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, Portland and other U.S. cities. In an another trend that has fed concern, gun sales in the United States this year have reached record highs, and more first-time buyers have purchased firearms recent months.

                    You not notice how the left turns things around ?

                    You don't have a rightwing problem as I see it. You have a leftie problem.

                    The threats of violence are coming from the left. That is why the silent majority exists.

                    Whether online or real life.

                    It wasn't neo nazis tearing into things after Floyd.

                    When Trump calls out Antifa and its ilk for what it is he's right.

                    The fascists of the future will call themselves anti-fascists.

                        I really don't know why you blokes bother. Your heads aren't going to make the wall any softer, and it isn't like there are a bunch of US politics noobs around here who will learn something from the constant corrections. I grant you there is a level of stress involved in not screaming abuse at the constant stream of moronic drivel, but it is still better than feeding the troll. Every response you blokes give is another excuse for his mindless bloviating. You are making it worse. Put down the shovel and stop digging. You will feel SO much better.

                        I will leave the last word to one of my favourite bands. The fat bloke on guitar (Mad Macca) has a law degree & the big bloke on bass is a world champion senior weightlifter and owns a very nice tractor. You would get more sense on this topic from both (the lyrics of the second song are particularly apposite):

                        Lost Cause



                        F***wit City



                        ....and since I'm on a roll, this song offers an alternative to banging your head against a wall - Nice Day to go to the Pub. I highly recommend it. (I was in the crowd when this was filmed, but fortunately for you lot too far back for the cameras to spot me ;) ).

                          Wrong, you have to be there consequently you have no first hand experience and I even question your source.

                          Please note that I will not play games with your bullsh!t

                            Yes i can, all i have to do is pit you against your own. I know which echo chamber to hang out in.

                            My source does not get to reply back here. And had there been more right wingers in here you'd get questioned back.

                            I'm doing my bit getting the govt's supporters line out.

                            I intend to do that until you have a change of administration.

                              Plaintive.

                              My point in case you missed it is Rolling stone is not a reliable source about anything Trump.

                              Are they going to inform you ? no, just add FUD which every opposition source does.

                              THAT is what i'm calling out.

                              The NYC primary is an example of what we can look forward to. Contesting those mail in votes.

                              IF there is no clear winner.

                              Biden wins, nothing happens.

                              Trump wins, i don't know what will happen.

                              Why do I sense there is this implicit threat of violence should that be the case.
