  1. President Trump needs to step up & talk common sense to the American people & tell them to get a covid shot. People are not going to listen to obiden. People would respect President Trump's opinion.

  2. Democrats are inviting Don the Con to their states in all close elections …. his presence brings out the blue vote as it did in Georgia. On election day, the republicans got more votes …. on the runoff, with Trump stumping for the Trumpublicans, they lost both and now his endorsed candidate in Texas. he's telling everyone, if you won't lie for me, I am going to go after you

    I found it interesting that CBS polled all 50 Republican Senators and asked who won the election

    a) All of the Senators that responded said Biden one

    b) Not one Senator responded said trump won. They either
    – Were afraid if they said Biden won, Trump would use his so called "Election Defense Fund" to create attack ads against them
    – Were afraid of losing the "voters with a brain" vote as saying Trump won erases all credoibility.

    And no, the reason "They really believe Trum won", then why did they not respond ?

    Arizona Audit Results:

    No, of Suspicious Ballots = 182
    No. of cases in which charges are pending = 4
    No. of Democrats charged = 2
    No. of Republicans charged = 2

    "County election officials identified 182 cases where voting problems were clear enough that they referred them to investigators for further review, according to an Associated Press investigation. So far, only four cases have led to charges, including those identified in a separate state investigation. No one has been convicted. No person’s vote was counted twice.

    Biden won Arizona by 10,457 votes out of 3.4 million cast. Of the four cases that have resulted in criminal charges, two involved Democratic voters and two involved Republicans."

    Trump has learned a bit and now includes a kernel of truth in his lies…. we can do this on every one but for brevity's sake, I'll pick one:

    TRUMP, claiming “11,000 voters were added to the voter rolls AFTER the election and still voted."
    THE FACTS: There's nothing untoward about voters rolls growing after Election Day. The rolls are simply updated to reflect people whose provisional ballots are added to the tally after election officials verify that they were eligible to vote.

    Have to give Trump credit for one thing, every once and a while he says something factual… well almost. It is true "11,000 voters were added " the day after the election but they did not "Vote after election day"

    In every election, votes are added to the tally after election day:

    Nationwide an estimated 500,000 votes were added to Biden's tally after election day
    Nationwide an estimated 500,000 votes were added to Trump's tally after election day
    Nationwide an estimated 500,000 votes were added to Obama's tally after election day
    Nationwide an estimated 500,000 votes were added to Bush's tally after election day
    Nationwide an estimated 500,000 votes were added to Clinton's tally after election day

    Every one of those 11,000 people voted on election day … but they were not added to the official count on election day. First of all the counting of votes between the time polls close and midnight precludes finishing the count. Then there's the fact of "provisional ballots" which Trump appears to be unaware … well either he doesn't understand how voting works or he's lying.

    If there's a problem with a ballot because of say the address on registration does not match the on on ballot, 6 states allow you to correct it "on the spot", In the other 44 states, the vote is deemed a "provisional ballot". Can see the full description on wiki, but in short, one of two things will happen with that ballot:

    a) In about 21% of the cases, they can not resolve the issue and the ballot is discarded

    b) In the remaining instances, they are able to resolve any issues and the ballot is deemed valid.

    Once this process is completed, those votes are added to the official tally the next day or shortly thereafter. So Trump is making hay about 11,000 votes being added after election day … but fails to mention how many of his votes were counted when he was elected in 2016.

  3. Stop unchecked uncontrolled spending. Price of steel up 145%, lumber 126%, cotton 35%, food 25%, wheat 25%, oil 80% all since Jan.6. No stories about important things like Inflation, gasoline prices, unemployment, illegals, border crisis, small businesses closing one after the other at the largest rate in history. Let’s all do more stories about your favorite eat ice cream and taking down statues! Today I realized that everything is changing. No matter how I voted, no matter what I may say, something evil has invaded our nation, and our lives are never going to be the same.

    I have been confused by the hostility of family and friends. I look at people I have known all my life–so hate-filled that they agree with opinions they would never express as their own. I think that I may well have entered the Twilight Zone. We have become a nation that has lost its collective mind!

    You can't justify this insanity:

    • If a guy pretends to be a woman, you are required to pretend with him.

    • Somehow it’s un-American for the census to count how many Americans are in America.

    • Russians influencing our elections are bad, but illegals voting in our elections are good.

    • It was cool for Joe Biden to "blackmail" the President of Ukraine, but it’s an impeachable offense if Donald Trump inquires about it.

    • Twenty is too young to drink a beer, but eighteen is old enough to vote.

    • People who have never owned slaves should pay slavery reparations to people who have never been slaves.

    • People who have never been to college should pay the debts of college students who took out huge loans for their degrees.

    • Immigrants with tuberculosis and polio are welcome, but you’d better be able to prove your dog is vaccinated.

    • Irish doctors and German engineers who want to immigrate to the US must go through a rigorous vetting process, but any illiterate gang-bangers who jump the southern fence are welcome.

    • $5 billion for border security is too expensive, but $1.5 trillion for “free” health care is not.

    • If you cheat to get into college you go to prison, but if you cheat to get into the country you go to college for free..

    • People who say there is no such thing as gender are demanding a female President.

    • We see other countries going Socialist and collapsing, but it seems like a great plan to us.

    • Some people are held responsible for things that happened before they were born, and other people are not held responsible for what they are doing right now.

    • Criminals are caught-and-released to hurt more people, but stopping them is bad because it's a violation of THEIR rights.

    • And pointing out all this hypocrisy somehow makes us "racists"!

    Nothing makes sense anymore – no values, no morals, and no civility. People are dying of a Chinese virus, but it's racist to refer to it as Chinese even though it began in China. We are clearly living in an upside down world where right is wrong and wrong is right, where moral is immoral and immoral is moral, where good is evil and evil is good, where killing murderers is wrong but killing unborn babies is OK !

    Wake up America, the great unsinkable ship Titanic America has hit an iceberg, is taking on water, and is sinking fast. Speak up! No more lifetime politicians. If all else fails do as the democrats do blame President Trump.

  4. We constantly try to define politicians only by Party affiliation. Many leftist liberals declare themselves publically and politically as Republicans as a subterfuge to ensure their election. Then, their true ideologies come out. We call them Republican In Name Only (RINO). When will voters figure out this long-standing dilemma? Occasionally, it is also apparent within the Democrat Party, also.

  5. Funny that these news stations want to talk about Trumps rallies but, they don’t show it on T.V when Trump is speaking. 🤔 makes you wonder now if they sometimes edit the video’s to make people hear what they want them to hear.

  6. To defend the fairness of elections is to defend the United States. This is a national defense issue, not a political issue, not a party issue, nor is it a personal issue of Trump.

  7. These two parties are supposed to be working for the American people! Their not! Their fighting for what Donald Trump wants, not the American people! Our government is so corrupt it's pathetic!
