    1. @Nobi_Bklyn The FBI has Hunters laptop of crack and meth smoking, email evidence or money laundering and embezzlement and pornography with pedophila for 9 months. I’m sure they’ll get right on this high school prank thing.

    2. *WSJ: Biden Economics Will Lead To $6,500 Drop In Median Annual Household Income*
      Oct 19, 2020 https://lidblog.com/biden-economics/

      *According to a Hover institute Study analyzed by the Wall Street Journal, the Biden economic plan will result in the median annual American household income to drop by $6,500. The Hoover study examines Biden’s proposals on health insurance, taxes, energy, and regulation.*

      ~ Overall, the authors estimate that the Biden agenda, if fully implemented, would reduce full-time equivalent employment per person by about 3%, the capital stock per person by some 15%, and real GDP per capita by more than 8%. Compared to Congressional Budget Office estimates for these variables in 2030, this means there would be 4.9 million fewer working Americans, $2.6 trillion less in GDP, and $6,500 less in median household income.

      *Or, to put it more directly–we will be screwed.*

      *Per the Journal, we probably won’t go into the depression predicted by President Trump; however, things will get pretty depressing. He would start with a booming economy set up by President Trump, but things will slow down and sink into malaise.*

      The study explains many factors behind income reductions. A big part of it is the taxes and regulations that will disincentivize hiring. The opposite of what Trump did to get the economy going.

      ~Mr. Biden is also proposing substantial increases in business tax rates that will raise the cost of capital. The former Vice President likes to say he’d only raise the top corporate tax rate to 28% from 21%. But so-called pass-through entities (often small businesses) employ more than 40 million Americans, and most pay taxes at the individual tax rate.

      ~“Biden’s plan to raise personal income and payroll tax rates would push their federal rates from below 40 percent to, often, above 50 percent, and these are on top of state income taxes,” the authors write.

      ~Mr. Biden would also raise capital costs by phasing down bonus depreciation in the 2017 tax reform, and he’d raise labor costs by imposing the 12.4% Social Security payroll tax to income above $400,000. The $400,000 threshold isn’t indexed for inflation so it would apply to ever-more Americans as the years go by.

      The study goes into detail explaining how Biden’s health and energy plans will also increase the cost of employing people eventually leading to higher unemployment—lower household income.

  1. If during a presidency the phrase “can you believe that this is our president? ” is uttered on a regular basis, you probably picked the wrong guy.

  2. NO MORE LIES…..NO MORE TRUMP….ENOUGH OF LIES ENOUGH OF PEOPLE DYING OF COVID 19…..
    ENOUGH……ENOUGH OF THIS ADMINISTRATION….
    ENOUGH……ENOUGH OF VIOLENCE……
    ENOUGH……ENOUGH OF GOP’S……

    1. DEMOCRATS are following the same footsteps Hitler did
      1. Censorship leading to ban of free speech
      2. Gun control leads to Gun confiscation
      3. Slowing down religion leads to BAN of religious practices
      4. Keep MSM in their pocket
      Exactly what Hitler did.
      The msm and Democrats are phycological protecting

    2. @Tech ti why can’t Republicans start their own MSM and I have heard That is a possibility by Trump himself?

  3. I’m a republican and a democrat. Never a loyalist to a party. Not independent – prudent. In this election, I’ll vote for the man determined to reunite those kids with their parents. That’s enough reason for me.

    1. @james kenyon You went to a radical Trump supporting newsfeed (no one has ever heard of) that does not explan Bidens most recent economic plan that had to be modified until Covid19 is dealt with. Notice how you did not include any factual Trump plans, just suppositions. Trump has no revised plan printed nor stated. He knows he does not need one to get his base to trust him blindly and have no expectations except to become a dictator. STOP!!

    2. @Neal There are so many things about Trump’s behavior and sleazy past that his cult either purposely ignore or never attempted to learn. Pretty pathetic. I think all they want out of Trump is a mouthpiece for their own bigotries and hatreds. As long as he delivers in that area, and he always does, they’re happy with them. From a political standpoint, the Trump cult is a pretty cheap date.

    3. @Neal Trump has no plans about anything! I don’t think he is even aware of what’s going on in America at all!

    4. you are a good person. BUT the liar trump voter is coached to see brown skin, and that means no humanitarian consideration can be given. it’s about filling up animal cages.

  4. Some people that like Trump are rebelling some people that hate Trump are rebelling it’s all Trump’s fault put him in jail

  5. To all fellow Americans……….tomorrow you can
    1. vote for Biden or
    2. vote for Covid…..choice is yours, but SCOTUS will be taking choice away soon as well (play on words)

    1. The US problem is not climate change covid-19, immigration or racism. It’s China. The only man that can stand up against China is Trump. Who lie about fracking Joe?Wake up and smell the hotdog’s America. Joe:Let’s make China great again. Let’s bring back the job’s to China. Biden is a national security treat.

  6. They are no patriots , the are gangsters. Trump can’t act like a leader. Vote him out of the office.

    1. Draft Kings Election Pool: Majority in 49 States Predict Trump Victory
      A Draft Kings Election Pool update posted on the eve of Election Day showed that a majority of participants in 49 states believe that President Donald Trump will emerge as the victor in the presidential election.
      Draft Kings’ official Twitter account posted a “DK Election Pool Alert” for its $100,000 pool on Monday, reporting that a majority of people in every state, with the exception of those in Colorado, predicted Trump would win the presidential election:
      ••••••••••••••••••••

    2. Benedict Arnold you can stand aside!
      Your traitorous actions, pale into insignificance when compared to the everyday activities of Acting (badly) president tRump!

  7. Accountability is necessary to demolish chaos.
    Bring back Decency, Responsibility, Integrity, Caring, Maturity, Humility, etc, etc, etc..
    VOTE / VOICE for BIDEN

    1. Yes put the decency back into Rioting Looting Arson and Murder to go with your Censorship, Cancel Culture, Hatred and Open Borders.

  8. These Trump supporters call themselves American Patriots, but they act like fascists. Everyone has the right to vote. But they try and suppress it. That’s fascism.

    1. @Arnold Ziffle You may be angry because you want a very dishonest conman to remain our President, however will never believe you really believe things you say here. YOU CANNOT BE THAT STUPID, nor EVIL!!! YOU JUST CANNOT.

    2. @Neal ….love your sales technique, all your name calling must really get you the converts you seek!…….do keep trying

    3. @Arnold Ziffle I am attempting to appeal to your sense of integrity and fair play. If you call that condescending, then go ahead. Respectful dialogue once the election is over, if you are game. You want a very flawed, narcissistic sociopath who is lying about a virus (among other lies) to remain in office? That while we are dying at 1000 people per day. God help us all. Trump and covid19 are the same; they only care about their own survival. If you can, without attack, please give me factual data as to why you want him to stay in office. I really want to know.

    4. @Neal if you really want to know it is his complete abhorrence of useless, endless wars. As a Combat Veteran myself, i know first hand the loss of blood and treasure in Iraq, a place we should never have been. I want a President who prepares us for war but does his or her utmost to avoid it. And while were at it, the Congress and their ability to shirk their responsibility in relation to Declaring wars needs to be fixed, war is not something you go into lightly without much consideration.

  9. Trump shouldn’t be the voice for everyone he must Go he’s very unhappy with his self . Trump is an disprove President for all of us

  10. Your president is insane. Those trucks were endangering lives on the highway. He has thrown in the towel as far as the virus is concerned. Chaos, confusion and carnage are the order of the day. Sadly. The world is watching.

    1. Professional psychiatrists have stated he is mentally ill. We’ll do our best to keep hope alive anyway 🙂 And yes, that incident was reckless endangerment defined perfectly. Also insane.

  11. They are domestic terrorists that should be tried and charged to the full extent. Specifically targeting and lethally endangering a political campaign’s bus is a terrorist act.

    1. They should convicted to the full extent of the law Endangering people’s life’s and the lives of others on the highway should not be tolerated
