The fascist left is the biggest threat to America in recent times.  They are exactly as they define their opposition.  They promote socialism over liberty and Marxism over capitalism.  They attack and malign conservatives on a regular basis based on the things it is that the fascist left truly is.  Their intolerance knowns no bounds

Eliminate the possible and what remains, however improbable, must be the truth.

For part 7 of the series, I will look at what is one of the most famous and celebrated stories of the New Testament, The Virgin Birth. After all, it does have its own national holiday.

Joe Biden is a weak and pathetic liar on top of being a senile sleepy pervert.  He attacks the President and his strong and forceful response to the China inflicted virus while he was being weak and bad mouthing the president for the steps he took.  Biden is as pathetic and foolish on the issue as his party leadership has been, particularly the blue city mayors and blue state governors.

Marjorie Taylor Greene, extremist Republican candidate for Congress, has the full support and backing of Donald J. Trump and Kevin McCarthy. This incitement to violence against members of Congress is an outrage, whether you agree with their politics or not.
Sep 04 3:59pm @6.1.1 I get that, but not everyone is offended in the same way. Now all we have is the accusation that it was offensive. Maybe it was an overreaction.
Sep 04 3:52pm @6 So, we can't actually see the picture? Makes it kind of hard to form an opinion on it.

A quirky food-lover has sparked a major debate with his tongue-in-cheek rant about boneless chicken "wings," which he denounced as a "lie" at a council meeting in Lincoln, Neb.  Ander Christensen, whose father is a city councillor, stepped up to deliver a passionate speech about chicken terminology during a public comment session on Monday, in a moment that has been watched millions of...

LACEY, Wash. (AP) — A man suspected of fatally shooting a supporter of a right-wing group in Portland, Oregon, last week was killed Thursday as investigators moved in to arrest him, a senior Justice Department official told The Associated Press. The man, Michael Reinoehl, 48, was killed as a federal task force attempted to apprehend him in Lacey, Washington, the official said. Reinoehl was...

Sep 04 1:32am @4.1.8 I think any vaccine announcement will help. Enough to put him over the top? I don't think there is any way to know, but things can develop quickly in the last few weeks of a campaign. We have seen...
Sep 04 1:18am @4.1.6 I think whatever it is they see, it isn't going to be very objective. They'd be fools, frankly, to ignore the prospect of a vaccine helping Trump in the election. However, there is danger in saying...
Sep 03 6:21pm @4.1.3 "..." You might not see it, but Democrats clearly do or they wouldn’t be talking about dates and October surprises and such.
Sep 03 6:19pm @6.1 "..." I don’t think they are disagreeing exactly. Fauci has been saying for a while that we should see data on efficacy by November. Actually distributing it might take a couple more months.
Sep 03 6:17pm @7.1 You would think states would have already been thinking about it.
Sep 03 6:12pm @4.1.1 "..." Of course it shouldn’t be, but it clearly is. We see it in the line I quoted and it’s been all over the news - accusations that the process is being dangerously rushed to benefit Trump....
Sep 03 3:14pm @4 "..." Sure, it's possible politics has an influence in the effort, but I doubt that is going to allow an ineffective or dangerous virus to bypass all of the reviews that still exist. A lot of...

Sep 02 1:06am @4.2 It does seem like a bit of good news, though. Unless you're elderly and/or have some these conditions, you'll probably do just fine if you get infected.
Sep 01 2:58pm @3 If there is confusion over any data or guidance coming out of the CDC, it is their own fault. The one consistency has been their inability to communicate with clarity.
