    Why don't you go ahead and lay out a case that this is false?

    Trump duped millions into voting for him. Hopefully a lot learned from their mistake in 2016.

    Wasn't it amazing that all the Trumpzis, at the exact same time, suddenly shouted "Democratic governors! Democratic mayors!" It's almost like they received their talking points and their orders from the propaganda arms of the Fuhrer.

    None of the far right extremists on this board ever have an independent thought. And they won't say anything about a situation until they hear from Tucker, or Rush, or a similar Fascist Pied Piper. And when they hear their orders, they come out in a big wave, shouting the same exact thing over and over again.

    Well he was so experienced and certainly was the right guy to be making those decisions. I mean when you have a global problem, who else are you going to lean on with his decades of experience....Kushner baby. Only other person more qualified is Ivanka....maybe Eric or Don Junior. I mean they grew up in the harsh real world....so they just have a feel for what the everyday people want and need.

    Biden should be held accountable for not replenishing ppe instead of “reallocating”or “redirecting” the money for that to something else.

    Come to think about it he should try that with the police!

    I have no idea what the truth is here (or on most things reported these days), but....

    “While the veracity of such claims cannot be verified—and Kushner refused to answer a detailed set of questions or be interviewed by Vanity Fair—the implications of such a decision speak for themselves and drew immediate outrage and a demand for accountability.”

    Idiots in this country need to demand more from the media instead of immediately latching onto the first story they see that confirms their bias. That goes for both sides. It’s beyond ridiculous. We have enabled this increasingly pathetic level of journalism and “reporting” that we are exposed to every single day.

    All because of a wedding ring. If Kushner hadn't married Filthy Don's litte girl the know nothing idiot wouldn't sniff the WH and be involved in anything. This is just another terrible hire from Filthy Don, as expected.

    Well there is that thing where Biden hasn't been involved in the government for almost 4 years. So yeah if you overlook that little issue.

    Remember when Trump touted that google was setting up a website that would tell anyone in the country where to go to get tested? Yeah, those were the days.

    I said back in March that we would look back at some point and find that a lot of mistakes were made at the federal, state, local, prior administrations, health care, etc. levels. I wasn’t wrong.

    The tRump folks were in office 3+ years and had plenty of time to right the situation. Blaming others is a true sign of weakness and cowardice. This is an example of extreme dereliction of duty.

    Cuomo was in office longer. What story are you going to give him for not replenishing.

    True but have we seen a pandemic like this before? Testing 50 million people where we haven’t tested 10 before is quite amazing. The scientists are the ones who got it wrong and are still uncertain. That part amazes me.

    The only mistake I see was made was sending Sick people into nursing homes.

    The novel nature and enormous transmissibility of the virus is why it was even more obvious mistakes would be made. Yes the nursing homes were a disaster at the state and local level, but also dumb things were said by Trump and many other leaders, Fauci and the scientists got a lot of things wrong, etc, etc. We weren’t ready for this....we have never been ready for something of this magnitude.

    True. But consider the costs of being ready for something of this magnitude when the chances of it happening are slim to none! Unless you are dealing with a threat that's intent on worldwide hegemony and suppressing us...

    We in the Western world thought (somewhat arrogantly, in hindsight) everyone else wanted to be like us. It made sense. Our ideas, freedom, and technology had won both World War II and the Cold War that followed it. Obviously, our ways were best.

    But that wasn’t obvious to people elsewhere, most notably China. Leaders in Beijing may have admired our accomplishments, but not enough to abandon Communism.

    They merely adapted and rebranded it. We perceived a bigger change than there actually was. Today’s Chinese communists are nowhere near Mao’s kind of communism. Xi calls it “Socialism with a Chinese character.” It appears to be a dynamic capitalistic market, but is also a totalitarian, top-down structure with rigid rules and social restrictions.


    So here we are, our economy now hardwired with an autocratic regime that has no interest in becoming like us.

    There is no simple disengagement path, given the scope of economic and legal entanglements. This isn’t a “trade” we can simply walk away from.

    But it is also one that, if allowed to continue in its current form, could lead to a loss of personal freedom for Western civilization. It really is that much of an existential question.

    Doing nothing isn’t an especially good option because, like it or not, the world is becoming something quite different than we expected just a few years ago—not just technologically, but geopolitically and socially.

    Not since the 1930s has the world faced such an imminent threat. We'd best come around to the realization before it's too late. I submit to you that ANTIFA are foot soldiers of the PLA; true communists disguised as anti-Fascist. Deal with them accordingly.

    Vote Democrat in November is a vote for the PRC. I thank you and beseech you to keep it real.

    Why hasn't this statue been torn down...

    That's not how it works in America. We Americans don't base arguments on a false negative. You must prove your point. How do you not get that? It's called innocent until proven guilty. Or do you not believe in that? Prove me wrong. Lmao. You cannot even put forward a valid argument for your own position. You expect others to base their position based on your nonsense.

    I agree with you on the cost point 1000%. No politician, with limited financial resources, is going to spend the money to be ready for every extremely low probability event that could occur on his or her watch, nor should they. They do, however, find other things to waste money on (as an example see Cuomo and the ventilators he passed on several years ago to invest in a solar panel project or whatever). I’m sure we will learn from some of the mistakes made across the board and make different mistakes next time...

    Lets play this back. I posted multiple articles that laid out some highly questionable actions by Kushner. Someone said they were fake, or something to that effect. They provided zero references or rationale as to why they were fake. I see this behavior frequently from Trumpers...no supporting evidence, just bullshit. You should redirect your response to those claiming that this is fake news and ask them what evidence do they have. This isn't a court

    Your own article said the claims were unverified:

    “While the veracity of such claims cannot be verified”

    How do you expect random people on a message board to verify and prove high level government intel and provide actual evidence from meetings they weren’t in?

    OPening up states has been the biggest problem. TX, FL,GA, AZ, CA all have huge problems now because they didn't have the patience to wait until the curve went down. A lot more people are sick/dying because of the poor decision to open too quickly.

    But Hunter Biden got a job on the board of Ukrainian gas company Burisma. Isn’t that a bigger case of nepotism than being named a WH Senior advisor with no prior government experience ?

    His 40+ year track record of amazing accomplishments in government is so impressive that he had nothing left to prove during that time. Speaks for itself (even though he can’t any longer). Plus he graduated at the top (very bottom) of his law school class!! Three purple guys :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:
