Obama says...FTA...'“I don’t want a country in which the president of the United States is actively trying to promote anti-Asian sentiment and thinks it’s funny' Better that a president makes jokes about an illness than imprisoning innocent men, women, and children in concentration camps like Democrat president Franklin Roosevelt.

China virus. Chinese virus. Wuhan flu. Whatever. The normal process for decades has been to name a virus for the geographic area which it first was discovered infecting people. This means that China, Chinese, Wuhan, or similar names are NORMAL. The Zero always was a 'hate America first' kind of punk.

Now THAT would be a subject that would make him urinate. Not to mention the arming of Mexican drug cartels or the use of the IRS as a tool of torture.

Hundreds of former officials who served under President George W. Bush are gearing up to endorse presumptive Democratic Nominee Joe Biden. The group of officials—which include members of Mr. Bush’s cabinet and other senior officers—has reportedly formed a political action committee dubbed 43 Alumni for Biden. Mr. Bush was the 43rd president. “We know what is normal and what is abnormal, and what we are seeing is highly abnormal. The president is a danger,” Jennifer Millikin, one of the 43 Alumni organizers, who worked on Bush’s 2004 re-election campaign and later in the General Services Administration, told Reuters.

Decisions on abortion and separation of powers demonstrate how good ideas about the law become empty words on a page. T here is a saying — perhaps as old as Aristotle — that courage is the first virtue, because it makes all the others possible. We usually associate courage (or its absence) with leadership by elected officials: There are times when it is hard to stand up for your principles, to stand against your own party, or both. From judges, we are told, the important thing is to follow, not to lead: to have the ascetic self-discipline to apply the Constitution and laws as written,

Mark and Patricia McCloskey — who went viral after brandishing an AR-15-style rifle and a silver-colored handgun, respectively — were the only ones to lodge a police report over Sunday’s confrontation, insisting they were “victims” of threatening trespassers who entered a gated community, the St. Louis American noted. But the husband-and-wife lawyers are being probed by police and prosecutors for possible threats against the crowd, authorities announced Monday.

With five months until the election, things couldn’t look any worse for the president of the United States. His approval rating is down to 40%. People are getting tired of his antics and the insults he hurls at his opponents. The media is increasingly confident that, come November, the voters will elect a new chief executive. This might sound like June 2020, but I’m actually referring to June 1948 — when President Harry Truman, a Democrat, was running to keep his job against Republican Thomas Dewey. The similarities between the 1948 and 2020 elections are striking.
