Trump constantly claims to 'love' the First Amendment, I wonder if he has ever read our Constitution he has sworn an oath to uphold, protect and defend?


Amendment I

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.



Clearly, Trump vilifies free speech and the Constitutionally protected "press"if it views him negatively, two of the most important aspects of the amendment. It seems Trump does not know our right to assemble and petition government is part and parcel of the very same First Amendment.

Of course the first argument brings up riots and looting, two criminal acts committed by a limited amount of criminals; there is no excuse, anyone caught should be prosecuted. I could never understand why law enforcement chooses to stand aside and allow looting on live TV. Each and every person climbing through a smashed window is a criminal, a looter.

Then it goes, what about riots and burning businesses. Obviously, NO ONE is claiming these are legal activities! Rioting and arson are two more crimes that should be stopped with a legal and reasonable amount of force. Sending Federal Troops into cites to stand against the population has not happened since the Civil War!

Federal troops, fully armed for combat, showing up to a peaceful rally causes totally needless friction; it is purposely done to intimidate the unarmed, vulnerable people long before the agitation begins. Often their very presence is what starts the friction. Everyone should have learned from Kent State that you don't send in the army just because you disagree with the protesters. These troops have no business on our streets. Trump can't have his secret army!








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.

LOU DOBBS HAS ON-AIR MELTDOWN, CLAIMS 2020 ELECTION RESULT DENIES TRUMP ‘WHAT IS RIGHTFULLY HIS’

Fox Business host Lou Dobbs is taking President Donald Trump’s election loss even harder than Trump himself, angrily declaring Friday on his show that the result of the 2020 presidential race is denying the incumbent “what is rightfully his.”

“This is an effort to intimidate. This is an attempt to take over the country and deny this president what is rightfully his, a second term.”

Take over the country? Really, Lou? The voters have spoken, and they clearly said they don’t want Donald Trump to be president for a second term. They have voted in record numbers and given Joe Biden a resounding electoral victory.

Lou Dobbs and the other conspiracy theorists who refuse to accept the result of the 2020 election have a choice to make: They can either accept the will of the American people or they can pack their bags and move elsewhere. No one will miss them if they choose the latter.

While the owner of Tyson Foods became $600 million richer during the pandemic, 11,000 of his workers got COVID-19 because they were forced back to work in unsafe and unhealthy plants as managers placed bets on how many would get sick. We must end this disgusting corporate greed.
