On August 18, 1944, Senator Harry S. Truman met President Franklin D. Roosevelt for lunch at the White House. Truman had just been nominated to be Roosevelt’s running mate that year, and the two men dined on the White House lawn and chatted about the upcoming campaign. Truman had not seen the president for over a year and was shocked at Roosevelt’s haggard appearance. He noticed that FDR was so ill that he couldn’t even pour cream into his coffee. Despite seeing direct evidence of Roosevelt’s poor health, Truman told reporters afterwards that Roosevelt “Looked fine...He’s as keen as a briar.” Truman was lying. Roosevelt was a dying man,

Remember the media's attempt to use a "25th Amendment" ruse to disqualify President Trump as unable to do the job as President that was used before the fake Russia, Russia, Russia spin cycle? Bite Me is obviously showing the signs, but where is the media OUTCRY about this???

Well at least he had Algier Hiss there to help oh wait...... Was his health the problem when he surrounded himself with Soviet agents or was there a bigger problem that lives on to this day?

Biden's lack of mental acuity is actually a feature, not a bug. He's only a place holder, and hey, the old codger's enjoying himself thinking he's really going to be the candidate. At the appropriate moment they will give him a big party, Joe will think its his nomination night and then they'll shuffle him off to Delaware. Whose going to be the designated "New Dukakis" is anybody's guess. That doesn't matter either. The Trump Train has left the station. Next destination; the American Restoration.

One thing that is not often remarked about Truman is that he was a habitual, casual liar. Associated with that, he was probalby the most blatantly partisan person in American politics before Bill Clinton. Like Clinton, he was far more partisan than patriotic. All that "Buck Stops Here" stuff was total bluster. Kind of like Trump's "never been done before" schtick.

In the picture, FDR looks---to use my Mom's expression---like 'death warmed over', but is still clutching a cigarette. The perfect metaphor for a democrat: a moribund addict, too selfish to give up his throne. Kind of like Nasty Nancy or the PIAPS. And 6 might have an explanation for Joe's brain work...he's a lousy shot.

The fact is - - that the Roosevelt and Truman administrations were crawling with communist traitors. It was suspected at the time - - and confirmed decades later when the Soviet files were released. Among other things - - these American communist traitors undermined the pro-western government of Chiang Kai-Shek - - and made it possible for the bloodthirsty Mao regime to take over China. There wouldn't have been murders of tens of millions of innocent Chinese - - and the terror treatment of hundreds of millions more - - if the American communist traitors had been stopped. The HUAC and McCarthy investigations had the right idea - - but they were almost completely ineffective. The American communist traitors were successful - - and we're still paying the price today.

I suspect that 90% of the Democrats who will vote in the Presidential election and pull the lever for Biden assume that someone else (VP or more likely an unknown cabal) will pull the strings of government. Very frightening in a Democratic Republic because it means the vote, if Biden wins, is not really relevant . And if you don't think the Dems will vote for Biden, look at Kim Foxx getting re-elected for the D.A.'s Democratic candidate.

The democrats are desperate to get SOMEONE elected! They really don't care who, but Biden is the most likely alternative they have. It's pretty sad when a political party can't field a few decent candidates. I mean decent as regards the welfare of America. Socialism/communism would be OK with the party, if they thought Bernie had a chance. Otherwise, hating President Trump is not a platform that enough people would vote for.

Roosevelt had the advantage of there not being a 24/7 news cycle, the internet, video recorders everywhere and a real opposition party. Even so, he probably would have been re-elected regardless. You dont change out the CIC when your winning the war.

It was a lot easier to lie 75 years ago since all there was for information was the newspapers, radio, and Movietone News in the theaters. It was easier for government to control what the public sees and hear. Now, we have the Internet. Only Chinese-style clampdown will put us back in the dark.

Plagiarizing what President Trump is doing, has already done, and will do relative to the ongoing corona virus pandemic and then publicly declaring that to be “his plan” in an attempt to gain political advantage shows that Biden believes that the American people are stupid, and illustrates that he is approaching a personal senility situation, and has declining cognitive abilities.

"Doddering" may be a polite description of Biden's current state. It's not so much that the dims' establishment is hiding this. They love it. They hope to see Biden win, collapse, and hand off the reins of power to the first female president, whose only necessary qualifications will be anatomical. If she's an idiot they'll control her. Either way, they'll bask in the sunny uplands of their profound virtuousness. If you don't think they have planned this out you need to return to nursery school and then grow up.

Truman served in active combat as the leader of an artillery battery in WW I. Later he did what was necessary to bring about the surrender of Japan in WW II and carried the burden of that decision for the rest of his life without self-pity or complaint. Seems like a real patriot to me.

#9, my father was to get on his aircraft carrier in San Diego in a couple of days and his fighter squadron was headed to Japanese waters, and when the bombs were dropped.

I don't think any American president could have kept the Soviets from controlling, post-war, the countries that had been occupied by the Red Army. Unless he was prepared to unleash George Patton and tell him to go East and not stop until he occupied Moscow. Which could never have happened - remember, at the time there was still the minor matter of defeating Japan (the A-bomb hadn't even been tested yet.)

IMHO Joe Biden will not be the only placeholder. I think the Vice-President for Democrats would also be a placeholder. They would be used to fool foolish people (Democrats) into voting them in. Then they would be used one after the other to sign executive papers placed in front of them. After Biden balked at signing something, the VP would take over temporarily and their real choice for president would be put into the Vice presidency, kind of like Ford was after Nixon resigned. As soon as the elected VP turned President failed to follow orders, that is when we would get the president the elites wanted and they would have shown us just how useless our votes are!

Well said, # 22. Liberals embrace many myths, we all know that. But some conservatives cling to what are IMO two myths of their own: - that FDR had options in eastern Europe which - whether through illness or sympathy with communists - he failed to press for - that nominating Barry Goldwater in '64 was a good idea which bore fruit years later Deploy the flame throwers if you wish.

Bailouts, in general, are neither good nor popular. The most recent legislation billed as a “stimulus” package was President Barack Obama’s 2009 raft of special interest giveaways and green energy boondoggles. It’s understandable, then, that a lot of conservatives are very wary of the proposed economic responses to the coronavirus crisis. And the odds are that, whatever Congress passes, it will end up — either because of the statute or the implementation — being filled with immense waste and cronyism. No bank bailouts. No auto bailouts. No farm bailouts. No leisure bailouts. No bailouts.

The coronavirus epidemic is slowing down in China, and will not pose a risk to the majority of people, an Israeli Nobel Prize laureate has said. Michael Levitt, an American-British-Israeli biophysicist who won the 2013 Nobel prize for chemistry for "the development of multiscale models for complex chemical systems," has become something of a household name in China over the last few months. Although his specialty is not in epidemiology, he accurately forecast the slowing down of the spread of the virus in February, giving hope to those affected by the lockdown.

Amid this crisis, Samaritan's Purse airlifted a 68-bed emergency field hospital to Milan. The DC-8 aircraft carried approximately 20 tons of medical equipment, a respiratory care unit designed for this specific mission, and 32 disaster relief personnel, including doctors, nurses, and respiratory specialists.

With all of the Wuhan coronavirus panic monopolizing the news in the past week, something that has the potential to be a truly earth-shaking geopolitical event was largely missed. President Trump announced Friday that he was ordering the Department of Energy to buy up some 77 million barrels of oil to fill the Strategic Petroleum Reserve, the massive store of crude oil the federal government has stashed in salt caverns along the Gulf Coast. The SPR’s capacity sits somewhere in the neighborhood of 713.5 million barrels; currently, it holds about 635 million barrels after Congress demanded last year that oil be sold off from the SPR.

In his debate with Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden made two pledges to voters and asked his opponent to do the same to nominate only a black woman for the next open Supreme Court seat and to choose a woman as his vice president. Even with identity politics, the pledge to impose a gender and race requirement for the next Supreme Court nominee is as ironic as it is troubling. What Biden was declaring, and what Sanders wisely avoided, would effectively constitute discrimination in admission to the Supreme Court. Indeed, the Supreme Court has declared that such race or gender conditions are strictly unconstitutional for admission to public colleges.

Every page of the Horowitz report contains new disclosures. The report’s banner headline was that FBI agents supplied inaccurate information or withheld exculpatory evidence 17 times when they asked judges to approve four wiretap warrants on campaign volunteer Carter Page. Morsels of information placed in footnotes or buried in a few sentences also tell a fuller story about the Trump-Russia investigation.

It doesn’t amount to a silver lining, but one result of the pandemic is that Americans are witnessing what it’s like when governments work together to protect and serve the public. From the White House to state houses, officials are spending incredibly long hours to mobilize resources, treat the sick and plan and implement containment policies — all while keeping people well informed. Most important, the message up and down the government food chain has become remarkably consistent as the scope of the threat becomes more clear: This is a war and we’re all in it together.

The point of this new piece isn’t to declare that the data on coronavirus is shoddy; the point is to declare that we just don’t have enough of it yet to feel confident about how dangerous the disease is.
