This is what the election has come to. Despite hollow claims by the left that Republicans encourage violence, the left is caught attacking peaceful supporters of Trump. Please note that they are not protestors, they are simply expressing their support for Trump - and they are attacked.

So dumb. Just like the trump guy in woodinville who pulled a gun on teenagers.

Spoiler alert: Biden will win Washington and New York by a landslide and Trump will win Montana by a landslide. Yet people feel the need to get emotional and violent about it.

Silly.

Dude with a Trump hat just walked up to a Black guy in Costco parking lot and yelled the N-word three times in his face. Disgusting. A bunch of people in the parking lot nearby and no one said a thing.

It seems like when Trump supporters commit violent acts people don't say a thing.
When non-Trump supports commit violent acts people speak up.
I think people have grown accustom to Trump supports acting aggressive so there is no shock anymore, but the same is not true for non-Trump supporters.

Doesn’t anybody from the Democratic Party want to explain to Butcher that is simply not the case?

I just submitted my ballot today. I won’t say what race, but Jeff Choate received a write in vote today. I couldn’t bring myself to vote for either candidate on the ballot.

You know what's funny about that... we all know it's not possible with the way things are set up but I literally do believe that Jeff Choate would be a better leader than either of these two... :lol:


Great time to be a BOBCAT!

I'd vote for Jeff on any local or state level race, including Governor. I wouldn't send an enemy to DC much less somebody I respected.

I actually thought about creating a new thread to write in votes for Jeff Choate as a way of protesting the awful choices we have in some of these races. I am sure that those write in votes are tabulated somewhere and it would be interesting to see a tally, but I was afraid that Coach Choate might get dragged into talking politics if the media heard about it. I honestly think he could have pulled in a couple hundred write in votes. \:D/ :D

I gotta pretty strong hunch about who’s going to win this election. Nothing illegal about this btw.

Wow. The big guy up front is really bordering on threatening the person in the car. That is not cool and makes that whole group look like bad.

I am curious how they identified the person with the camera as a Democrat. There were people in the crowd giving her the middle finger. Was this a Trump rally?

Historic growth numbers reported yesterday, and CNN and MSNBC did not report on them.

I watched Stephanie Ruhle report on it yesterday morning on MSNBC and also saw CNN reporting on it yesterday. I see they're only talking about the prime time commentary shows.

It dropped 32.9% the previous quarter and was expected to increase 31% this quarter. It went up by 33.1%.

I was going to start another thread, but seriously what is the point. There is so much corruption within the Trump Administration we would have too many pages to sift through. So here is some more "Has this ever happened before?" news!

Trump administration pressured federal prosecutors to settle investigation into Turkish bank

***Congress will be looking into this and trouble seems very possible for Trump & Company

This is disgusting to me. I hope regardless of political affiliation, you object to this ad. Biden used a reference to Hitler in an ad attacking Trump. The Anti Defamation League came out and objected to the Biden ad.

I just watched the ad. It compares the neo nazis in Charlottesville to real nazis.

I’ve been looking for the ADL statement, but can’t find anything. Do you have a link to their statement?

Here’s the ad on YouTube.

Jonathan Greenblatt who is CEO of the ADL tweeted the following. It was really a statement requesting all political ads to refrain from using such references.



What I really find egregious is the implication of Trump as comparable to Hitler. Don’t you see a problem with that? And he references Trumps comments in Charlottesville which are not accurate. Trump actually stayed that the neo-Nazis should be totally condemned.
