The government needs to stop "saving" successful, money making businesses like big oil!

The difference between patriotism and nationalism is that the patriot is proud of his country for what it does, and the nationalist is proud of his country no matter what it does; the first attitude creates a feeling of responsibility, but the second a feeling of blind arrogance that leads to war.

For all the nonsense, Trump and his worshipers always accuse the left of violence, yet, if a gun is involved it is invariably some right wing, second amendment "Christian" doing the shooting. In Kenosha, Wisconsin, an armed 17 year old, white, right wing gun nut started shooting into a crowd of peaceful protesters. Again an AK like weapon was used by a juvenile from Illinois to shoot people and as usual, the killer is right wing!

Kyle Rittenhouse, age 17, killed 2 people & wounded another last night at a BLM protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin. He belonged to an armed right-wing militia, & video showed police thank him & give him water prior to the killings. As he and other right-wingers fired into the crowd of peaceful protesters, again police did nothing according to several eye witnesses. Look at this boy's age. Look at his eyes. If you think America's white supremacy and terror is going away if Trump loses in November, this is the sad reality.

The difference between patriotism and nationalism is that the patriot is proud of his country for what it does, and the nationalist is proud of his country no matter what it does; the first attitude creates a feeling of responsibility, but the second a feeling of blind arrogance that leads to war.

For better or worse, we are living in America under Trump.





After almost 4 years, Trump owns all of this, the protests, the over reach sending American paramilitary troops to fight other Americans, kidnapping people off the street. Trump actually praises people driving thought crowds, shooting paint balls and pepper spray at random people... violent thugs that call themselves patriots. Despite Trump's rhetoric about 'law and order', chaos is all Trump has to offer!

Fox News confirms shocking story on Trump's contempt for American Troops — after the president argued it was ‘fake’

Fox News has joined the Associated Press and The Washington Post in confirming shocking details from the bombshell report in The Atlantic on President Donald Trump’s contempt for American troops.

“The Atlantic Magazine is dying, like most magazines, so they make up a fake story in order to gain some relevance. Story already refuted, but this is what we are up against,” Trump claimed, falsely stating the story had been refuted.

But now Fox News is confirming details in a thread posted on Trump’s favorite social media platform:

NEW, @JenGriffinFNC confirms former Trump admin official confirms details in The Atlantic story, including quotes about veterans. When the President spoke about the Vietnam War he said, “It was a stupid war. Anyone who went was a sucker.”
3:55 PM · Sep 4, 2020 from Manhattan, NY


Also from @JenGriffinFNC: re John McCain, “the President just hated John McCain. He always asked, ‘Why do you see him as a hero?” Source confirmed POTUS did not want flags lowered but others in the White House ordered them at half mast. There was a stand off, President relented.

Were it not for the antiquated, useless Electoral College Biden easily won the election by 9:30 Thursday night! There are not enough ballots remaining to count that could give Trump a victory by popular vote since Biden has nearly a four million vote lead.

Trump Eclipses Obama's Popular Vote Record, Reinforcing Speculation of a 2024 Run if He Loses

The president has picked up 69,538,777 votes at the time of reporting, according to the Associated Press, surpassing Obama's 69,498,516 votes in 2008. But Biden has managed to record even more, with a record-breaking 73,303,957 tallied for the former vice president as of 9:30 p.m. Thursday.

Turnout in the 2020 election was estimated to be the highest since 1900.

But despite more people voting for Trump in 2020 than Obama in 2008, he still is almost certain to lose the popular vote for the second election in a row. In 2016, Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by almost 3 million but still lost to Trump in the Electoral College. She received 48.2 percent of all votes cast compared to Trump's 46.1 percent. But the Electoral College votes went to Trump, 304 to Clinton's 227.

A Republican presidential candidate has won the popular vote only once in the past eight elections, when in 2004 George W. Bush received 62,040,610 votes to John Kerry's 59,028,444 votes.

I'm not fond of the Catholic church, but sometimes they get things right.

TRUMP FINALLY ADMITS BIDEN WON THE ELECTION – AND THEN MAKES EXCUSES FOR HIS LOSS

It appears that President Donald Trump is finally accepting the fact that Joe Biden won the 2020 presidential election, but his acceptance is being tempered with excuses of why exactly he fell short of his Democratic challenger.

On Twitter Sunday morning, Trump fired off two tweets referencing the election:

"He won because the Election was Rigged. NO VOTE WATCHERS OR OBSERVERS allowed, vote tabulated by a Radical Left privately owned company, Dominion, with a bad reputation & bum equipment that couldn’t even qualify for Texas (which I won by a lot!), the Fake & Silent Media, & more!"

"All of the mechanical “glitches” that took place on Election Night were really THEM getting caught trying to steal votes. They succeeded plenty, however, without getting caught. Mail-in elections are a sick joke!"

Time for some fact checking:

The mention of “Dominion” is Dominion Voting Systems, which manufactures software used in running elections across the country, but as the New York Times noted earlier this week, those voting systems did NOT delete votes cast for Trump:

“Many of the claims being asserted about Dominion and questionable voting technology is misinformation at best and, in many cases, they’re outright disinformation,” said Edward Perez, an election-technology expert at the OSET Institute, a nonprofit that studies voting infrastructure. “I’m not aware of any evidence of specific things or defects in Dominion software that would lead one to believe that votes had been recorded or counted incorrectly.”

As for elections conducted by mail, there has never been a shred of evidence that absentee ballots are more susceptible to fraud than voting in person.

Donald Trump lost the election, and he lost by a wide margin in both the popular and electoral vote. He knows he lost. Now he’s trying to find an excuse that doesn’t make him look like what he is and will always be: A loser.
The difference between patriotism and nationalism is that the patriot is proud of his country for what it does, and the nationalist is proud of his country no matter what it does; the first attitude creates a feeling of responsibility, but the second a feeling of blind arrogance that leads to war.
