And what are Israelis to make of support from End Times evangelicals who see Israel as necessary to biblical prophecy?....

Doubt it bothers them, they probably see the white supremacists as votes for Daddy.

But I'm also reminded that Kissinger overlooked Nixon's blatant anti-Semitism.

A couple of weeks ago I mentioned that two weeks is a long time in politics.

Three weeks is even longer, and this post was 3 weeks ago:

3 The Dow & NASDAQ will set new records, thereby allowing Trump to praise himself over it.

6 Four more years.

2 - Covid peaking.

When I suggested that, there were many posts pooh-poohing the idea.

Yet, 2 days later, the US infection rate is down 40% from its peak. Deaths, lagging, are down only 10% from its recent surge.

I'd be very surprised if it doesn't keep dropping.

3 - NASDAQ, check, Dow, very close.

4 - you can bet unemployment will be dropping sharply, simply because more places are open.

5 - check

There's also a very important new point - riots and looting driving support for Trump, with a genuinely large change in both Biden v Trump and Trump's approval rating in the past couple of days. I don't see any other reason for the change, and it's pretty likely that perceived violence on the streets drives support for authoritarianism.

I know, what was up with that? At first I thought he meant the police choked people. But he was talking about police who chicken out or something and let some rounds fly.

Trump Tweets

Drudge didn’t support me in 2016, and I hear he doesn’t support me now. Maybe that’s why he is doing poorly. His Fake News report on Mini-Strokes is incorrect. Possibly thinking about himself, or the other party’s “candidate”.

Weird that the media seems super excited about unsupported allegations in some liberal hit-piece book that Trump had a minor health issue a year ago, yet it is entirely unconcerned with Biden's manifest dementia on display yesterday.

I'm seeing it claimed that nobody said anything about "a series of mini-strokes", until Trump himself brought it up.

They weren't. He's projecting again. He can't help himself.

There's probably a sexual joke in there about Trump and "mini-strokes", but I'm not smart enough to come up with one.

Interesting that Trump uses that golf example about "choking on a short putt" given how he's famous for dragging the ball into the cup with a club from distances no other golfer would drag the ball into the cup.

His golf cheating denial is just under the surface.

Agreed. I wish he had included the GOP in his condemnation of Trump's racism. If the Dems don't take the Senate, Biden will be severely hampered in trying to pass legislation.

Stacyhs 1st September 2020 05:22 PM

I'm watching Tim Murtaugh, Trump's mouthpiece, twisting himself into a pretzel trying to explain away his master's ridiculous "plane full of thugs" lie on Anderson Cooper's show. It's hysterical! He keeps trying to claim that it's 'OK' because 120 people arrested in Kenosha were from out of state so that somehow justifies the claim. He's also using the tactic of just continually talking over John (the host filling in for Cooper, don't know his last name) when he's called on the fallacy of that argument. What a slime ball.

ETA: First that flight was coming into Washington. Later today he claimed it was leaving DC. He can't even keep his own lies straight.

And if it hits you, that's worse than a brick because that's got force. It's the perfect size. It's, like, made perfect.

And when they get caught, they say, 'No, this is just soup for my family.' And then the media says, 'This is just soup. These people are very, very innocent. They're innocent people. These are just protesters. Isn't it wonderful to allow protesting?'"
Umm, yeah Mr. President....

Stacyhs 1st September 2020 05:58 PM

Pence says he "doesn't recall" being put on standby during Trump's unscheduled Saturday visit to Walter Reed last November. No denial. Just "doesn't recall". That's the standard 'non-denial' used when you can't honestly deny something. He so was put on standby.

Recently uncovered footage from late July. I had to look it up myself because I assumed kookbreaker was making some obscure sitcom reference.

That's interesting because all I read was a small stroke. So now we know, the diagnosis was a series of mini-strokes. They probably put him on anti-coags.

Was that around the time of the cement milkshakes?

In Bad Boys, Sean Penn used cans of Soda in a pillowcase as a weapon. Bags of soup, sheesh.

I think that's likely. When my mom had a TIA, she had another shortly thereafter. I think he inadvertently let out more info.

This is the first I'm seeing this, missed it completely back whenever.
It starts as "cans" of soup. Sounds nasty, and effective (I'd go with the little single serving veg though... you could carry a lot more of those. [emoji1] ) but he goes immediately to "bags" of soup.
WTF?
Really... what the actual? Bags? Where did that thought even come from?

Maybe they are using Soros’ United miles and have to go through a hub to get the saver rate.

Norman Alexander 1st September 2020 06:36 PM

Come on, USA. You have a big, beautiful, powerful constitution, and the 25th Amendment in that big, beautiful, powerful constitution deals with removing a president who can no longer president properly.

Just bite the big, beautiful, powerful bullet and ditch the raving moron. It's getting to the stage that he can't even dress or toilet himself. Because this **** just keeps on dribbling out of him in public. It's embarrassing for everyone, and bad for your country.

Fix it.

Now.

Biden's facing-off with Trump at the national level : Senate seats are a State-level subject. It's up to the State Democratic Party to point up the connection.

It can't be Soros because Trump said Biden is being controlled by people on the streets 'you've never heard of'.

But Trump apparently HAS heard of them. Shady underworld characters are the very type of people he mixes with, and has done for decades.
