WOW.....Biden has floundered so profoundly, that even CNN has stopped cheer leading for him.

" Biden now sports the lowest net economic rating of any president at this point through their first term since at least Jimmy Carter in 1977 "

" Notably, Biden's net rating is worse than his two immediate predecessors, Barack Obama in December 2009 and Donald trump in December 2017. "



CNN is dumb. They are making a very oddly specific comparison that probably no one cares about.

The overall point is that the economy is stagnant. Well, strap in, folks, because this surge of covid right now coupled with the extreme weather, labor shortages, scarcity of electronics, and everything downstream of those things is going to make things get significantly worse before they get better.

Biden's promises kept versus promises broken ratio, though, for whatever it's worth, doesn't look too bad. However, conservatives don't want most of what he promised and the things liberals wanted most out of those promises are the things most likely to stall, so I don't see it likely that Biden will be very popular by the end of 2022. I could be wrong, though. I've certainly been wrong before, like when I thought that there was little chance Trump would win in 2016, or how I thought that the Russia investigation would likely find nothing...

The two McMichaels in the Ahmaud Arbery murder have been sentenced to life without the possibility of parole plus 20 years. Bryant was given life with the possibility of parole plus ten years.

That's a start. They'll all be facing kidnapping charges next, and then probably federal hate charges, so it's far from over. I'm not sure how involved Bryant was, honestly, so I was a little surprised when he was convicted of murder along with the other two. Early on, it seemed like he was cooperating with authorities and it was pretty unclear which activities he was abetting. If the jury found him guilty of murder, which they did, then the judge did right in going with a life sentence.

The Fed is also going to feel like they have to pull back the easy money to compensate for all those extra Trillions we spent, so yea, I agree that things will get worse before they get any better and I expect many moderate voters who were convinced by mainstream media that they should hate Trump will quietly acquiesce and vote against Biden, however for what it's worth I hope Republicans run someone other than Trump........but somehow I bet we will see Biden vs. Trump round II

DemocRATS lie constantly, it's beyond disgusting, it's more than shameful, it's nauseating and this 1/6 protest being compared to Pearl Harbor and 911 is such a blatant political ploy.

How many Americans have been singled out by big tech " private partners " for scrutiny based on their political opinion, how many have been censored ? Too many I will bet.

How many peaceful protesters who simply walked in through open doors, into the peoples house as tourist have been made convicted criminals because they dared to question a very questionable election.......too many I am afraid, too many.

The Capital wasn't open to tourists on 1/6/21. No one who went in was there legally. It is funny that Ted Cruz said that the people there were terrorists and Sean Hannity called him out for this. Cruz then asked to be on the show the next day and groveled to Hannity trying to say that the several times he had called them terrorists had been a mistake. 🤣

BTW, the unemployment rate is down to 3.9%. That ain't too bad for Biden.

Don't get it twisted, if Hillary supporters had protested at the Capital in the same way after her losing to Trump, I would have been upset with those who became violent, but people casually walking in through open doors into the peoples house looking and acting like tourist are not terrorist.

I was upset by constant post election attempts by Hillary and her supporters to overturn her loss to Trump and the 4 year long anti Trump protest Hillary and her mob put the country through as well as the criminal BLM mob violence we saw last year.......it makes a 1/2 day mostly peaceful protest look weak by comparison.

The job numbers were dismal, Bidens recovery is still lagging, maybe if Biden wasn't paying people to stay home and liberal governance wasn't turning cities into crime scenes via. inane liberal policy that's proven itself a fail.

The economy added far fewer jobs last month than economists projected, according to Labor Department report. For Biden, it's the fourth dismal jobs report he's received in recent months where employment rose by just 200K jobs in December, less than half of the 422K much needed jobs that economists projected the country would gain.

Biden is a complete and total failure, we would have been better off with Trumps hair on a puppet controlled by .....well not the Sorros/China interests who seem to be directing Bidens every move in this attempted destruction of America.

In the Washington Post yesterday:

On the Saturday that Joe Biden was declared the president-elect, Cleveland businessman Bernie Moreno took to Twitter to congratulate Biden and urge his "conservative friends" to accept the results. He wrote that there was probably some fraud and illegal votes, but concluded "Was it anywhere near enough to effect the result, no"

But, just over a year later, Moreno who is running for the Senate in Ohio's Republican primary looks into a camera and now says,"President Trump says the election was stolen, and he's right."

Moreno is emblematic of the modern Republican Party, echoing Former president Donald Trump's baseless claims that the 2020 election was stolen - a position that has become the unofficial litmus test of good standing in the GOP.

At least 163 Republicans who have embraced Trump's false claims are running for state positions that would give them authority over the administration of upcoming elections, according to a Post tally. Ten of these are awaiting trial for actions done at the Capital on 1/6/21. One of these has said that he will run from jail if he has to. "It will give me something to do."

YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING ME! 🤣

Alvin Bragg, a former federal prosecutor sworn in as Manhattan District Attorney on Jan. 1, sent guidance to his office calling for the "decriminalization/non prosecution" for crimes including marijuana possession, turnstile jumping, trespassing, resisting arrest, interfering with an arrest and prostitution.

The Trump mob who stormed the Capital on 1/6 were anything but peaceful. The Capital was closed to all tourists that day so anyone there was breaking the law. At least 726 have been charged and at least 350 more are yet to be identified. The FBI is asking for help in identifying the remaining ones. Trump keeps trying to change the narrative saying most of those who were peaceful, but that's nonsense. That was also addressed in the Washington Post article I posted about today. It was all about how the GOP has turned its back on any ideology it had in preference to a cult of personality in Donald Trump.

Trump will be reelected.
Then your head will ((( POP ))) and liberal fizz will bubble out of your neck.
Like a liberal bottle of Woke-a-cola shaken to it's core by being wrong again.

Yep....you were wrong about Hillary, she LOST.....wrong about Northam, he LOST.....Biden I still don't believe was legit and that's why people were protesting on 1/6.

Also as it turns out many of the people admitted to hospitals had other aliments along with COVID and many of the deaths were deaths with COVID and not from COVID but were reported as COVID hospitalizations and deaths.

Funny how democrats are discovering what you have been calling conspiracy is actually true now that the truth benefits you, now that you need people to go back to work ( so much for socialism huh ? ) and you need the economy to recover.

Democrats eventually run out of other peoples money to spend, run out of inane ideas that fail and run out of lies ....well you run out of people willing to believe any more of the lies.

I have no doubt that some of the people on 1/6 are guilty of trespassing, but it was just another mostly peaceful protest, only without the arson, mass looting and rampant property destruction.

Congress Preparing For Another January 6 By Enrolling In Group Karate Class

2222.jpg

WASHINGTON—Nervously fiddling with their new white belts as they waited for their instructor in the training hall, U.S. Congress members reportedly prepared for another Jan. 6 on Thursday by participating in a group class at the D.C.-area True Method Karate Studio. “We simply cannot allow what happened last year to ever repeat itself, which is why from now on we’ll be meeting up once a week to study the martial art of karate with Howard-sensei,” said Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, who stood barefoot on the dōjō mat among his fellow lawmakers, practicing making a seiken proper fist before moving through a variety of basic stances. “After last Jan. 6, we just felt so powerless and humiliated. This will be a great way to not only gain back our confidence, but be ready to defend ourselves with kicks, punches, and blocks in the event there’s ever another insurrection. Plus, it’s a whole lot of fun!” At press time, sources confirmed the class was seething with envy after Sen. John Hickenlooper (D-CO) became the first to receive his yellow belt.

Everyone there went through broken windows or doors and had to fight with the Capital Police injuring hundreds of them. Trying to compare this to any BLM protest is nonsense as this was done at the behest of the sitting president and hasn't been seen since the war of 1812. There was mass destruction and and threats against the Congress while Trump supporters tried to overturn a legal election to put their lost candidate back into the presidency after he lost by more than 7 million votes and 75 electoral college votes. That is the definition of a coup. And Donald Trump sat in front of his television and cheered as his mob did his bidding. Many of the people who once went to him asking that he tell his supporters to go home have now taken to accepting that the 2020 election was stolen against the overwhelming evidence to the contrary. That is today's GOP! A cult of Trump. No ideals or any position. Just anything Trump wants! This is the worst this country has seen in over 200 years!
