    1. US was always PC. From “manifest destiny” to your snowflake great grandparents who called Ellis “Heartbreak Island”. (For the low acceptance rate of… 99%! And long processing times of… 4 hrs.)

  1. “The president bears responsibility for Wednesday’s attack on Congress by mob rioters,”

    ‘He should have immediately denounced the mob when he saw what was unfolding.”

    “Some say the riots were caused by antifa,” There’s absolutely no evidence of that, and conservatives should be the first to say so.”

    “These facts require immediate action from President Trump — accept his share of responsibility, quell the brewing unrest and ensure that President-Elect Biden is able to successfully begin his term.”

    “Let’s be clear, Joe Biden will be sworn in as president of the United States in one week because he won the election.”

    1. @Thomas Murphy because there was video of him and a cnn reporter laughing, the rest got that get out of jail free card before anyone knew

    2. @Donnie BunkerBoi Demanding fair elections is not crying. That is your wheelhouse, because of your failed lives with social science degrees you paid over a 100K for. If your girlfriend is avaialble I am sure she would like to go out with a real man.

    1. that’s because those are the only ideas they have, everything that has moved us forward intro the future did not come from the right. They are always looking to the past.

    2. @B L
      Greatest decade of growth technologically financially culturally in America’s history was the 1980s under Republican Ronald Reagan!

      The greatest financial crash and markets to which the government bailed out the car manufacturers and now the government owns a portion of their company and largest debt increase was under Barack Obama!

    1. @Josh Wilson Stop drinking the kool-aid my dude, oh and I’ve been an independent my whole life. Fake liberals or leftist are way more fascist than conservatives these days.

  2. AND it seems the Federal Democrats can’t get it together to bring the voting rights into law. Good-bye Unied State’s democracy! Entrenchment of authoritarianism is just a year away!

    1. If you are referring to the voting fraud,…no, they arent going to get to keep that. They are slowly going to lose that fraud until they are all voted out of office and then brought up on treason charges.

    2. The democrats are doing what they can but without even a majority in the senate (because of Sellout Sinema and Sold Out Manchin) it is going to be up to targeted minorities to get the IDs they need and f*cking vote. I hope they do.

  3. BREAKING NEWS !!! Joe Manchin and Kyrstin Sinema offer to sell their votes to the highest bidder, exclaiming that they are willing to do what’s necessary in this situation.

  4. “Germany was the dress rehearsal for the United States.” The (Neo) Nazis are implementing the Fourth Reich of the New World Order.

    1. You are very spot on. Watch the first ten minutes of the Book Thief movie. Every time they say Nazi, (substitute Democrat), and every time they say Jew, substitute (white person). Sounds just like the DNC, Biden and MSNBC on a daily basis.

  5. Some time to have a honest and legitimate election there must be rules !! Or it is not an election it is a competition who cheats the most. The truly telling part is how upset Democrats are that they would have to abide by common sense voting laws. And claim EVETYTHING they don’t like to be racist. Everyone but those who don’t want to see what they are up to.

  6. How about every State require the same process for voting as buying a gun?
    “It’s easier to fool people than convince them they’ve been fooled.”

    1. To Drag Chain: That may be the most inspired idea yet! Either way, it’ll spur some necessary public discussion about both,

  7. John hit the nail on the proverbial head. Since I’m unable to help, I feel very vulnerable to the nasty republicans right now. I’ve tended to stay Independent, but usually vote for Democrats. Some time ago I voted for a “good” republican, but I really don’t see any “good” ones anymore. I’m terrified that these goons are somehow going to get on top & ruin our lives completely.

  8. Looking at 2019 CDC guidance, one has to wonder if one of the reasons why there is such a run on ivermectin is because

  9. Try and go to a doctor without providing your insurance card and a photo I.D.! Try getting on an airplane, or getting a loan, or buying a car or a house. Without that I.D. You’re not even going to get in the door.

  10. Taking a month’s vacation when the country is being torn apart ? Sounds like the Roman emporer fiddling while Rome was burning. History again repeats itself.

  11. “If half the country becomes undemocratic…”
    All right. The threat is real. I don’t mean to make light of it.
    But democracy dying due to half the country opposing it is about as democratic as it gets.
