    Senator John Barrasso (R-WY) just looked like a fool on Meet the Press. Chuck Todd read back his own words from 2016 about how a justice should not be voted on in an election year. It was funny watching Barrasso try to justify his change.

    It is clear the Republican's words can not ne trusted as they will change what they believe to suit the moment. You have Republicans who are using fear tactics that Biden will put a Far left nut job on the court. Or like in the case of Barrasso who claim this is okay because Obama tried to get a justice vote in an election year. Etc..

    Yea. Saying Biden 30 years ago said that a president even during an election year should choose the justice if they control the Senate and White House. The only people who call it the Biden rule are Mitch and other Republican's who are trying to justify being liars.

    Funny how when Obama picked a justice we didnt hear shit about the Biden Rule.

    Republicans make up 'precedents' when it suits them.

    The Economy is the one that is the hardest for me to understand.
    In four years he has trashed the econmy and destroyed job growth, as well as created several Stock Market scares.
    It is what jobs have been ruined under Trump? The jobs that don't hurt his supporters or the ones they can blame POC for losing.

    Take New Mexico

    Total nonagricultural payroll employment fell by 70,500 jobs, or 8.2%, between August 2019 and August 2020, the release said.

    All major industry sectors experienced over-the-year job losses.

    Leisure and hospitality continued to report the heaviest employment losses, with a drop of 29,700 jobs, or 28.9%, compared to the previous year, the release said.

    Employment in mining and construction was down 10,500 jobs, or 13.5%. The majority of those losses came from mining, which contracted by 8,000 jobs, or 30.3%, the release said.

    Construction employment was down 2,500 jobs, or 4.9 percent, over the year, the release said.
    Who does those jobs?

    Blacks were the only major demographic group whose jobless rate decline in July was smaller than the national average. The largest decline was for Asians, for whom it fell by 1.8 points to 12%, followed by a 1.6 point drop to 12.9% for Latinos.

    At 14.6%, the unemployment rate for Blacks was the highest among the racial and ethnic groups tracked by the Labor Department. It was higher still for Black men at 15.2%, down from 16.3% in June, while for Black women the rate dropped to 13.5% from 14%.

    I don't know if it's already been posted but the Trump administration has just put Fatou Bensouda, Chief Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court and her top aide on the sanctions list historically reserved for war criminals and international terrorists.

    Yet, if these idiots are willing to get out of their damn echo chambers and listen to Joe Biden, they'll find out that Joe Biden all but hates the far left almost as much as they do. More than likely, a Biden appointee is going to be just as moderate as he wants it to be, regardless of how much the more left-wing members of the Democratic Party will find that annoying.

    The thing is Trumpers will never believe that. He and Fox news are going on about how far left Biden is. How he will be the puppet of Pelosi and AOC. Biden has not even talked about who his pick would be if he is elected. yet Fox News put out a list of his most likely top choices and of course all of them are far left or judges with not near enough experience to sit on the Supreme Court.
    The funniest of his so called most likely picks is a family court judge who ten years ago he said he agreed with her ruling in a custody case. And according to Fox News that is one of his top picks.

    Trump is very publicly spreading fascist ideas about White Supremacy:

    "You have good genes, you know that, right? You have good genes. A lot of it is about the genes, isn't it, don't you believe? The racehorse theory. You think we're so different? You have good genes in Minnesota." --
    "How does the Green Goblin have anything to do with Herpes?" - The Dying Detective

    Hillary was right!

    Trump has a lot of weird theories when it comes to biological determinism in regards to genes and IQ.

    His father was of German decent and was arrested during a KKK rally in New York during the 1920's, so one could imagine where his fathers sympathies lied during world war 2.

    Trump on Oprha discussing biological determinism, small wonder why he didn't treat COVID seriously.

    I’m sure Hitler, Goebbels, Himmler or some other high ranking Nazi scumbag said something similar to that to adoring mobs of properly brainwashed Germans.

    That helps to lol.

    If want to learn about Trump's beliefs one should research Fred Trump his father, Donald was very close to him, and it appears he was indoctrinated by his beliefs, to what extent, I'm uncertain, but there does appear to be a strong influence there.
