I think many of us feel the same way as Kristy, but I agree with Lloyd's analysis. God would not give us President Trump as President if He planned to take him away. BUT it is up to US to make sure he is re-elected! We took the opportunity for a new direction in 2016 and we need to keep it going in 2020.

I am suspicious of these “..I am a supporter but..” things because there is just so much darn fake news. Trump has weak Republican party leaders to work with, an evil lying media, Gates & WHO-controlled doctor bureaucrats and a treasonous opposition shutting down the entire nation. In the face of all that, his strength and resilience has bern absolutely remarkable. I will trust God and continue to show Him I do by supporting and praying for our God-fearing President.

Two factors at work. First the right course of action is far from clear -- the US daily death rates are stubbornly high (I had hoped for low hundreds a day now). In teh face of uncertainty, allowing others to make fools of themselves is good politics Second, no politician can enunciate the trade-off between an elderly persons death (a loss of ~1000 useful days) and shutting down young peoples lives (maybe a 10% degradation of the value of each day shut-in). Equally, no politician can come up with the trade-off between business activity lost vs a life lost (eg an estimate of $5 million per life). These calculations are required to formulate policy, but they can't be publicly acknowledged. Trump's political instincts are (as always!) brilliantly correct -- he will avoid damage to himself, and expose Democrat governors and mayors to the risk of political annihilation.

If you are concerned that your governor or mayor is making bad decisions, it is up to YOU to get him voted out of office. It is not up to the president to sweep in and overthrow state and local governments. Trump can provide guidance and encouragement. If dems choose to fight or ignore that guidance, it is up to people in the states to set things straight in the courts and eventually in the election box. It is great to have Trump as president and he has done a lot to help this Country but this Country belongs to the American People and it is up to US to elect leaders that do the right thing for us. Apathy eventually evokes a cost. That is what is happening now at a time of testing. Will we learn the right lesson? Some areas of the Country are obviously lost to the dems. They are crumbling and we need to let them. Only with the goad of hard failure will changes be made. The rest of us need to get on with our lives.

It is up to the people who put these abusers of the constitution in office to address this. It would be unconstitutional for the president to order governors to do or not do. Actions having to do with bill of rights should be addressed through courts and through pressure on governors and elected state reps first. Federal government can rule when case gets to federal level. If the state leaders/reps fail to respond to the will of the people of their state the state constitution has the means of redress. This usurpation of the peoples rights did not happen overnight and will take a hard, long, focused slog to remedy. Something most are unwilling to commit to. I would add the vetting, recruiting, developing, and selection, maintaining accountability of leaders for all positions in government is not a spectator sport. You get what you value enough to spend your time, energy and money to accomplish

President Trump works very hard for us. He has been on the job for less than 4 years. I do not expect him to know everything. That is why he relies on experts that are supposed to know about these things. Some times the experts are wrong. I will tell you one thing. After watching how the democratic Governors rule when they take and have power, there is no way I want them in power. I will take my chances on Trump no matter how bad things appear .

All the people available to Trump have been political allies, first, of the Liberals, Globally. So he's been cautious about how much of what they're telling him, is the truth. He is well aware that the left doesn't give a damn about the loss of life. That is only a weapon to use against Trump since he's ultimately in charge. Look at the states with the highest death tolls: All led by Democrats who in most cases implemented policies that directly contributed to the number of people infected. On top of that, they are padding the Corona death tolls with frivolous, "He has Corona antibodies in his blood, so it doesn't matter he has a bullet in his brain, he died by Coronavirus." Trump has to be careful because either way he jumps he will be blamed. I suspect he'd rather save lives, first.

The debate about “reopening the economy” is a phony debate. It’s phony because “the economy” isn’t shut down. Far from it. Walmart is still open. Dollar General is open. Amazon is open. Alibaba is open. It just so happens that the big-box mass merchandisers and online retailers responsible for flooding our country with crap from Communist China are open.

Post-virus America can be a decentralized, more accountable country in school, business, and government. My parents' generation, that of the War of 1939–45, looked forward to the peace with wistful ballads like "When They Sound the Last All Clear" and "When the Lights Come On Again." I doubt if our time will hear "When I Go Back to the Office Again" or "When We Go Back to School Again." After all, home confinement doesn't match spending nights in crowded basements or Tube stations during Luftwaffe bombings

Count me as one of a diminishing number of "coronavirus response" skeptics. My vantage point is that of a working-class person (service manager in an auto repair shop). My state of Virginia has joined the growing number of states that has ordered its citizens to remain in their homes except for essential reasons, and a shutdown of non-essential businesses until at least June 10th. The good news for me is that auto repair is classed as an essential service and I have enough diverse skills to make me the kind of employee who will be the last to be laid off.

This week, Fox News’ Laura Ingraham obtained several emails from the State Department regarding a previously unknown White House meeting held in January 2016. After watching Ingraham’s presentation of the story, Ukrainian Embassy official Andrii Telizhenko, who had attended the meeting, issued an exclusive statement and provided several documents which she presented to her audience on Friday night. On May 1, 2019, New York Times reporter Ken Vogel emailed the State Department to confirm that (State Dept. official) Elizabeth Zentos had attended the January 2016 White House meeting about “Burisma Holdings and concerns that Hunter Biden’s position with the company could complicate such efforts.”

Preparations are underway in the United States and the nations of Europe to celebrate Christmas as first and foremost a tribute to materialism. These increasingly agnostic and secular societies are choosing to ignore the existence of God as well as disdain for the moral and behavioral guidelines as established by Judea-Christian teachings. They are, as a substitute, placing more and more trust in man. The ultimate consequence for a society that chooses this misguided reliance and the reality of God's outstretched helping hand is embodied in the story of a young boy from the streets of a nameless city in an unknown country.

It is the inevitable nature of revolutions that they enter a point of hysteria when, like Saturn, they turn on themselves and devour their own children. While the hysteria of the current aspiring revolutionaries, or “power grabbers,” to use Ilhan Omar’s own words, is not yet at the stage where anyone is being carted off to the guillotine or sent to the gulag, the new face of the Democratic Party is devouring its parents. Its children are yet to come.

The Trump administration’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic has been an ‘absolute chaotic disaster,’ former President Barack Obama said on Friday. President Trump’s predecessor blamed the current occupant of the Oval Office and his allies for exacerbating ‘tribal’ tensions around the country, which he says has hampered the effort to reduce total number of cases nationwide. Audio of the web call in which Obama spoke was obtained by Yahoo News. ‘What we’re fighting against is these long-term trends in which being selfish, being tribal, being divided, and seeing others as an enemy - that has become a stronger impulse in American life,’ the president said.

Matt Drudge’s media links compilation has been one of the sites I’ve checked every morning for the last decade. The Drudge Report always had links to sites with stories I would not see on my trusted sites. I say “had” because I am weaning myself from it due to the dramatic shift in bias I’ve observed, especially in the most recent months. The Drudge Report has become part of the leftist media cabal slanting coverage to defeat President Trump. There were dramatic revelations in the plot to get Trump this week–virtually ignored by The Drudge Report.

The Biden for President campaign is building a “secret” group of Republican supporters in an effort to entice would-be Trump voters to cast a ballot for the former Vice President instead, per a Daily Beast report Sunday.The group is likely to attract so-called “Never Trump” Republicans, many of whom have been working against the president since before he won the election in 2016, and have undertaken several mostly unsuccessful efforts to undermine the president’s administration and derail his re-election.Biden gave some insight into the group’s creation late last month when he suggested that his campaign was “speaking to a lot of Republicans,”

As my colleague streiff reported earlier, a “private call” from former President Barack Obama just happened to be leaked to Michael Isikoff. Strange, isn’t it, how this leak parallels leaks during the Russia investigation that also went to Isikoff with information seemingly meant to undermine Donald Trump? The same reporter who was leaked to about Carter Page. Almost as if there’s a pattern there that we’re seeing once again. On the call that obviously was private and not at all staged to be leaked, Obama said he was concerned that the “rule of law is at risk”

Asked by CBS News' Catherine Herridge how history would judge the DOJ's decision to move to dismiss the Flynn case, Barr initially responded, laughing: "Well, history is written by the winners, so it largely depends on who's writing the history." After the brief clip aired, Todd remarked that he was "struck by the cynicism of the answer -- it's a correct answer

Over the past week, a host of lawmakers, district attorneys, and law enforcement agencies in counties still under strict COVID-19 closure orders said they planned to defy Mr. Wolf and unilaterally move themselves to the next phase of the governor’s reopening plan. State officials have given 37 counties the go-ahead to ease restrictions, lifting the stay-at-home order and allowing some businesses

Coronavirus outbreaks in nursing homes have been particularly deadly in California, Illinois, Michigan, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and New York. You could make a strong argument that the country’s deadly coronavirus problem is largely a nursing home problem, dangerous everywhere but far more prevalent in a half-dozen or so of the country’s more heavily and densely populated states. What’s more, many of these states enacted coronavirus response policies that likely put nursing and assisted-living home residents at higher risk for infection. Notice the California policy described by the San Jose Mercury News: Even as senior care centers have been particularly hard hit by the coronavirus —

A document posted publicly by Ms. Reade indicates that she departed Biden's office four days later:
