    Has he said that anywhere in this thread?

    That point illustrates the hypocrisy that the left willingly ignores, which is why it makes it so difficult for the right and left to talk to each other.  You are also illustrating the other reason why the right and left can't talk to each other... the right tends to engage in deeper and more complex thought and (from what I have seen) the average leftist isn't smart enough to keep pace with the right as demonstrated by the lefts complete inability to meme.

    The electoral college is outdated, and doesn't represent the one person, one vote idea. I can see this going by the wayside in the near future. It gives too much power to states with smaller populations and skews to overall will of a Democracy.

    A. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Popular_Vote_Interstate_Compact is actually an unconstitutional agreement

    B. Let's see if the NPVIC stays in effect should (hypothetically speaking) Trump wins the popular vote and then gets the votes for a bunch of the blue states that would have gone to Biden handed over to Trump.  I'd imagine many of the Democrats would likely ignore NPVIC on the spot because there's no way they'd want to contribute to Trump winning in any fashion and they're just that petty.

    C. The US is not a democracy, it is a constitutional republic that uses democratic proceedings.  A pure democracy is basically mob rule, which is a very bad things (for obvious reasons).  Trying to remove power from the minorities only serves to make the US more totalitarian - and for someone that's drinking the leftist Kool-Aid I'm surprised you'd be so willing to trample the minorities when it doesn't benefit you politically.  That isn't surprising because the Democrats (as demonstrated by the religious oppression they implemented by their lockdown measures) are basically a bunch of totalitarians that don't give two shits about the minorities beyond their ability to vote for them.  I mean...

    Anything that doesnt fit the preconceived narrative of  a Trump support is fake news, this is why you cant have a discussion with Trump supports.

    You mean like the narrative that groups protesting the Covid lockdown are bad... yet people protesting for George Floyd are good...  and Coronavirus is on the rise again?

    No wonder you can't have a discussion with anyone supporting Trump if you can't even see the hypocrisy spoon fed to you daily in the MSM.


  4. So then stuff like this happens...

    The google doc is created by ABC news and The Washington Post, but what about all the other polls including one by Fox News

    They're all three MSM and thus fake news, so any poll they put out isn't going to be objective because it's going to be political first, poll second.

    As for 2016 he was a behind by not by that much only around 3% in the 6 months before the election

    https://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2016/president/us/general_election_trump_vs_clinton-5491.html

    And yet, here's a map of what the districts did.  Trump won with 304-227 votes... that's around 60% of the electoral college votes (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2016_United_States_presidential_election ).  That big of a margin IS NOT 3%, that's a blowout, and if the polls were actually accurate they would have reflected that.  Hell, had the Democrats done some self reflection and realized that when you run a sociopathic bitch as a candidate, people aren't going to vote for her instead of blaming everyone else on their failure, we would actually see a contender for Trump... rather than a guy that really should be in an old folk's home instead of the campaign trail.

    Any idiot can put out a google doc and call it a poll.  If you're going to cite that, it means the I don't need to waste my time with the rest of your post as the rest of your sources are likely just as dubious as this one.

    Also, didn't Trump poll poorly in 2016?  Coincidence?

    President Trump has made 16,241 false or misleading claims during his three years in office

    Just because they've cited how many times Trump tweeted in his presidency doesn't means anything.

    The Trump campaign doesnt like that he is really far behind in the polls, the want CNN to retract and apologise for a poll they published this week showing Biden with a 14 point lead.

    https://edition.cnn.com/2020/06/10/politics/trump-campaign-cnn-poll/index.html

    When the media has put out (on average) an incorrect article about once every 1-2 weeks... it gets very old very fast. https://sharylattkisson.com/2020/06/50-media-mistakes-in-the-trump-era-the-definitive-list/

    other would-be domestic terrorists

    Which is media speak for "Antifa" because Antifa is a far left militant anarco-communist group and the MSM won't call out their own on their stupidity so they will continue to gaslight people... like they have been doing for years.

    And don't even try to deny it about what's going on in Seattle because I'm getting data directly from friends in the area.  Put down the browser, go read https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antifa_(United_States), and educate yourself on what's actually going on.

     


  8. And from https://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/2020/06/06/george-floyd-brutality-systemic-racism-questions-go-unanswered-honesty-opinion/3146773001/

    Quote

    "Minneapolis, Minn. has been under Democratic control since 1978. Chicago has been under Democratic control for 89 years; its present mayor is a black woman. Philadelphia has had Democratic mayors for 68 years; three of its last five mayors have been black men. Six of the last seven Atlanta, Ga., mayoral administrations were led by black Democratic mayors, and the present mayor is a black woman.

    "A city runs its police department and other services; therefore, if there is so much 'systemic racism' in these organizations, why hasn't it been corrected over so many years under Democratic leaders?

    That's a very good question.  Given how long these cities have been governed by the Democrats, one would have thought that they'd be shining cities on the hill, true paragons of tolerance and equality....

    Yet that's not the reality....


  9. So digging into the Black Lives Matter stuff, and their website is https://blacklivesmatter.com/ , specifically with the donations there's a domain change that it does to https://secure.actblue.com/donate/ms_blm_homepage_2019 which strikes me as odd, as a legitimate charity shouldn't do that (I'd expect a donation page to be on their domain, not on aother one), looking more at https://secure.actblue.com/ and it's basically a DNC PAC.  So in other words, BLM isn't a charity, it's a DNC PAC masquerading as one.


  10. It's time for a constitutional lesson for all the posters here, as this is very relevant to the current ongoings of the US, for relevance, here's the US First Amendment (as seen on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First_Amendment_to_the_United_States_Constitution ), which is:

    Quote

    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

    Notice the bolded part?  That's the part that the riots are violating, or put more simply:

    riots =/= protests

    The riots should be put down with the full force of the law to prevent further damage to businesses and homes, and all involved in starting the riots should be arrested and prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

    What strikes me about the riots is that the number of people killed by them tend to be overwhelmingly minorities ( https://www.foxnews.com/us/deadly-unrest-people-have-died-amid-george-floyd-protests-across-us ) and they are also occurring in minority areas destroying many minority homes and businesses in the process.  It's like the razing of McDonald's and Wendy's didn't stick it to the man, it probably cost somewhere between 50-100 jobs for that area.  I mean, if this was occuring in just a city or two, that would be one thing... but as it's occurring in minority areas in almost all of the cities reads as too coincidental for it to not be someone's intention to intentionally trying to provoke a race war in the US.

    And then you have the useful idiots (which refers to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Useful_idiot ) that claim Trump is a racist... yet news reports like https://www.bloomberg.com/opinion/articles/2019-11-06/trump-s-economy-is-historically-good-for-minorities indicates that he's not.  If Trump is truly a racist, why would he do stuff that helps out the minorities?

    Then you have shenanigans like the video Trump released for George Floyd's memorial that was deleted off of Twitter by Twitter ( https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/501270-twitter-removes-trump-campaign-tribute-to-george-floyd-claiming-copyright ) and as the same video is still up on YouTube.

    So I ask you, is it more racist to delete a rather positive message that's actually in support of the peaceful protests, or to make a video in support of the peaceful protest fully acknowledging that the Minneapolis PD screwed up with George Floyd?

    Everyone who sees how economies expand and contract, knows the American economy is always inherited from the previous administration. Trumps just been riding the coat tails of Obama's vision for America.

    Also, Wall Street and the other investment indexes are controlled by algorithmic programs upwards of 90%. So the fluctuations don't give one fuck who the President is.

    That's true... only for the first one or two years...  We're in the fourth year, so the economy is Trump's beast.

    IMO, once everyone said mass grouped protesting is okay (not the riots, obviously), then the case for Covid-19 lockdowns is finished.

    So let's see if that theory makes sense in about two weeks time....

    How can anyone think about voting for Trump this year

    Because stuff like https://www.cnbc.com/2020/06/04/stock-market-futures-open-to-close-news.html keeps happening:

    Quote

    Dow jumps 900 points, Nasdaq hits a record after surprise U.S. jobs surge

    When the economy is bouncing back - the economy Trump built by the way - combined with Democratic cities doing dumbass stuff like disbanding police forces ( https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/jun/05/minneapolis-police-union-bob-kroll-us ) which is only going to cause further chaos in the cities, enact policies that make stopping the riots extraordinarily difficult ( https://www.foxnews.com/media/police-panel-on-looters-quickly-released-under-ny-bail-reform-law ) because it's letting the rioters get back to rioting quite literally the next day (rather than waiting for the rioter to post bail like the way the system usually works).  With all of the rioting, it seems like the minorities are the ones hardest hit as it's their neighborhoods that are burning - which really raises an eyebrow as there have been out of state rioters caught and arrested.

    Throw in the following democratic hypocrisy, and the question really should be "why would you want to vote democrat?"

    Meanwhile Biden and Pelosi are out in the demonstrations talking to people, and where is Bunker Boy? He's doing basement inspections. _O-

    Yes, because this shooter is oh so clearly white:

    Edit:

    Why don't you go read an actual account of what happened that night? https://heavy.com/news/2020/06/police-officer-shot-head-las-vegas/


  15. Other relevant stuff to this entire thing, when you have memorials and monuments in DC getting defaced, having people be on guard with a site that's not only the Presedential home, but also a museum and property of all of the US citizens.  I mean, here's some of the defacing that's occurred:

    dcvandalismprotests.jpg?itok=AXdPA9Y0

    What irks me the most about this is that they defaced the WWII memorial, which is frustrating especially since one of the most fighter escort groups from that era are the Red Tails aka the Tuskegee Airmen, aka the first black air squadron ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tuskegee_Airmen )

    And here's some cold hard truth about George Floyd....

    What I find completely shocking about all of this is that David Dorn and Dave Patrick Underwood are not getting NEAR the coverage as George Floyd... likely because George Floyd fits the MSM narrative for what a black person "should be".
