Trump gave us the best economy in decades until covid hit, not high inflation and runaway crime like liberal ideas and liberal policy has created in democrat run Cities where de-funding police and bail reform along with DA's who fail to enforce our laws based on some inane woke racial standard have people afraid to walk down the street.

It's not " ranting " that saw cities burned, looted and property destroyed and if you think moderate parents will stand by while democrat tyrants indoctrinate their children with racist identity politics then you are going to need more than good luck.

Beyond the disgusting racist Marxist identity politics being forced on kids is the Godless progressives religion of climate change which has been intentionally over hyped and now we see why, it's all about power and control, democrats have some nerve attempting to pass a multi TRILLION dollar spending bill packed with " Greed New Steal " while we are suffering high inflation, it's a power grab and a means to an end, that end being socialism where Big Brother dictates our lives from cradle to grave because Big Brother knows whats good for us, the wealthy progressive liberals who control our social media think Freedom and Liberty is much too dangerous for the little people who need big government to take care of them.

How's Biden going to take care of everyone when he can't even provide covid testing after being in office for a year ?

Actually, Trump didn't DO anything to get us a better America. He just said he did. He used the NYSE as an example of his better economy, but that isn't, wasn't, a better economy at all. The police in many areas have been infiltrated with White supremacists and the killing of unarmed Black men started marches across much of this country. Trump always has never spoken out against White supremacists and this has lead to them coming out in much larger numbers like in Charlottesville. CRT has only been taught as an elective in Law schools, but it is a marvelous distraction from real problems. No one was teaching anything close to that in Virginia, but you think that because they elected a Republican governor, this shows a winning strategy. We shall just have to wait and see if I'm right or you are.

Fox News ranting about liberal judges in Harris county Texas is not going to get a Republican elected there. That is hilarious that they say that 150 people have been killed there by liberal judges allowing people out on bond over years. Hell, more than 150 people have been killed in any large city by people out on bond if you go back enough years. 🤣

Marjorie Taylor Greene has been suspended from Twitter, this time permanently, for posting false information about covid-19. She had been suspended twice for two weeks each time for first saying that covid was not dangerous for non-obese or people under 65 years of age. Then again for saying that the vaccines don't work. Good riddance.

I have no respect for police who abuse the authority we the people have entrusted them with to protect everyone and see that our laws are enforced provided those laws pass Constitutional muster, I expect police to use their judgment in enforcing the law equally for everyone while respecting every citizens rights and honoring their oath to uphold our Constitution, a good police officer will not commit color of law injustices against citizens or enforce an unconstitutional law/order........however there are circumstances when a police officer must use force to deal with a citizen who refuses to comply with lawful orders.

That said I have seen some body camera footage where the police officer was dead wrong, however more often than not when reviewing body camera footage related to public outcry over a black man being killed by police, the black man was treated with respect and it was the black man who chose to.....well act like a violent asshole.......now I do not discount that some people may feel frightened and fall back on a fight or flight response which we can address.

However when democrats/liberals with a political agenda exploit race for political gain by attempting to label every single police shooting of a black man " racism " when in fact quite often the police officer was as polite as possible and made every attempt to effect an arrest without the use of force, those with a political agenda do harm and make matters worse.

If we are to address police brutality and find a workable resolution, then we must be honest about the political exploitation of race and we must support our police when they are compelled by a subjects violent/non-compliant actions to use force, otherwise we will see more good people victimized by runaway crime in liberal run cities where police have been handicapped by unjust politics that make doing their job near impossible.

Thank God for police body cameras, we can all see what happens and we can all see that it's not always the cop who's wrong, but when the cop is wrong and worse yet intentionally wrong, then they must be held accountable to a higher degree because a cops word is taken over a citizens in court, so they do need to be held to a higher standard, but they also must be supported when compelled to use force by the violent/non-compliant actions of criminals.....regardless of the color of their skin.

New Initiative Decreases Stigma Against Homeless By Making Majority Of People Homeless


less.jpg
SAN DIEGO—In an effort to decrease the widespread social shaming often associated with being unhoused, a new city initiative unveiled Thursday reportedly aims to decrease stigma against the homeless by making the majority of people homeless. “It’s our hope that we’ll see more empathy with our homeless population by making the vast majority of San Diegans homeless by 2025,” Mayor Todd Gloria said in a statement, outlining the city’s plan to make at least 900,000 of the city’s 1.4 million residents homeless through evictions, foreclosures, and the eventual bulldozing of much of the city’s housing stock. “We’re going to make homelessness the new normal. Our consultants repeatedly emphasized to us that many people are unable to sympathize with the plight of the homeless because they’ve never experienced a lack of housing themselves, so we’re looking to remedy that by getting almost everyone out living on the streets. Ultimately, this is a situation that comes down to equity, and there’s no better way to decrease the inequity homelessness causes than by making everyone else homeless too.” City officials confirmed the new initiative is part of a sweeping series of social reforms that also aims to decrease the stigma against the formerly incarcerated by arresting everyone and sending them to prison.

More than 700 people have been charged or convicted in the insurrection at the Capital on January 6th. The NY AG has now subpoenaed Ivanka and Donald Trump Jr. for their roles in attempting to underpay taxes in the Trump companies. Eric Trump has already be deposed b the NY AG. I hope that Donald Trump will be charged soon for his attempt to get the 2020 election overturned on 1/6/21.

Biden promised he would " END COVID " yet after a year in office Biden can't even provide adequate COVID testing and now says COVID is a problem for State Governors to deal with but that hasn't stopped Biden from continuing to push mandates, something he said he wouldn't do and blocking therapeutics.


Who is making Bidens foreign policy decisions for him if anyone ?
They don't have Americas best interests at heart, our enemies are growing stronger thanks to Bidens weakness.

Cancun Ted Cruz is the most hilarious stupid instigator of his own agenda without being anyone who is actually honest in his public trials of people he disagrees with. That Ted Cruz video is the best example of an ignorant Senator from Texas who has been laughed at by most of the legitimate media.

Biden has supplied this country with all the PCR tests it needs and is behind only in the antigen tests that he is getting ready to supply this month. You want to claim that Biden is responsible because we still have covid-19 in this country?! That is nonsense! He has done so much more than Donald Trump ever did to help Americans dealing with this pandemic. Trump claimed that covid was a Democratic political sham! That is the total nonsense of this.

Yes, we don't have the antigen tests that people want right now, but we do have plenty of the PCR tests and Biden has stated that these antigen tests will be more available sometime this month. What you don't seem to understand is none of these tests show when the virus is replicating and people are transmissable. The PCR tests don't tell us that, nor do the antigen tests. In fact, the antigen tests are more liable to give false positives. That means to be certain one must take this test at least twice.

Biden is still much better than Trump with his neglect of the pandemic. This was always a Democratic fraud to Trump. The real problem is that too many Republicans still refuse to get vaccinated. They also refuse to get their children vaccinated. Since they are Trump supporters there doesn't seem to be anyway to change their minds either.

Elizabeth Holmes, founder of Theranos, was found guilty last night of 4 out of the 11 charges she faced. She is now facing about 20 years in prison because she was found guilty of defrauding investors out of almost $1 billion. Hopefully this will have an effect on Silicon Valley's "fake it til you make it" way of doing business.

1/6 was just another mostly peaceful protest without the looting, arson and mass property destruction, but I get it, it's the only thing democrats can make political hay out of these days, especially now that Joe Manchin has said NO to the bbb socialism bill which was loaded with ( greed new steal ) another power grab on its own.

Cohen is a liar and convicted perjurer with an ax to grind, I have no doubt he would slander Trump in some animosity soaked book.
Except a handful of people died violently. But, yeah, other than that and the fact that the legislative branch of government was almost overthrown by the executive branch, I guess I can agree about Jan 6th.

The BBB is another one of those things that sounds good to a lot of people on paper, but we know from experience that the more stuff you hand over to government control, the more bureaucracy and inefficiency creeps in. Look at the ACA - at the time, plenty of people were going without insurance, so it seemed to make sense to get them together on a public insurance policy, but what actually happened was an insurance mandate that just ended up racking up more expenses for people, and then the insurance companies still had no incentive to pay out claims, so very few people benefitted from it and far more people ended up worse off.

In fact more people signed up for the ACA this year. People have been benefiting from the ACA for quite some time now. Trump tried to remove it to no avail. There is no mandate and there hasn't been one for years. I have Medicare which is another government agency that no one that has it complains about it. Medicare is one of the best government agencies around.

If you'll actually look at my post you'll see that I said no one complains about Medicare. My point was that government agencies are not the bad guys here. The ACA also had many people enroll in it this year too.
