Original Article

Posted By: Ribicon, 8/24/2020 10:31:57 AM

Former Sen. Jeff Flake has endorsed Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, the former vice president’s campaign said Monday. Flake (R-Ariz.), who retired from the Senate early last year, will deliver remarks later on Monday as part of the launch of the “Republicans for Biden” effort featuring two-dozen GOP former members of Congress.(Snip) Also featured as part of the “Republicans for Biden” coalition are Sens. Gordon Humphrey (R-NH) and John Warner (R-Va.), as well as Reps. Steve Bartlett (R-Tx.), Bill Clinger (R-Penn.), Tom Coleman (R-Mo.), Charlie Dent (R-Pa.), Charles Djou (R-Hawaii), Mickey Edwards (R-Okla.),

Comments:

"Radical Conservative" Fox News says we should perceive this leftist showboating as a strong rebuke of our president, but instead it shows the poor moral character of such politicians, and the good judgment of voters by transforming these scoundrels into former Republicans.

Former Vice President Joe Biden favors the wholesale slaughter of innocent unborn children. His running "mate" is worse.

When I see names from the Republican Party going with Biden, I just think they must be so crooked that they're afraid President is going to unmask them. He certainly is bringing the swamp creatures to the surface.

Flake and the other RINO's are looking for jobs, and they know that they will get none if PDT is reelected. They are turning coat in hopes of future employment. Why is it that the GOP has no many backstabbers and the Dem's seem to march more or less in lockstep?

One of PDJT's greatest achievements in his first terrm was forcing all these RINO's into revealing their true identities. Also forcing the Democrats into revealing that they are stone cold Socialists who rule by Fascist tactics. The idea that a Joe Biden presidency would be "moderate" is believed only by hopeless optimists. Unfortunately, there may be enough of these fools to elect China Joe.

Like RIP Van Winkle, I must have been asleep for a heck of a long time and missed a lot of bad things that Trump has purportedly done, su h as corruption, destruction of democracy, and blatant disregard for moral decency. Again they speak about the vile dems. Please give me just one example of each of these to prove your point. You know you can't. You are pure scum. Please return all of the money and expenses you stole while in office, NOW!

One of PDJT's greatest accomplishments smoking out the faux conservatives in the Republican party - Kristol, Will, Kasich, Ryan, Flake, GHW Bush, Heb!, both Whitmans, George Conway, Cindy McCain, Noonan, Rubin, and a host of others. If they think they'll have influence when Trump is gone, they're sadly mistaken. We know them for what they are.

Flake is but on of a whole army of corrupt trough feeders who, at one time, were assigned to pretend to be Republicans by the Uniparty. Never imagine that any of these crooked cowards ever had any actual ethical views that they believed in, other than "more money and power for me".

We couldn't wait to get Flake out of office. He would say the right things to get elected, then do the opposite when elected. His endorsement for pro baby murderer, Biden, demonstrates that he only uses his LDS religion as a facade and lies to his own God.

If China's future looked more promising than America, he'll probably jump ship and apply for Chinese citizenship. Feeling betrayed and deeply regret endorsing him ever since he entered politics.

If/when Pres Trump wins in November, these faux Republicans who claim to be moral conservatives will find themselves tossed to the curb faster than maggot infested kitty litter. They will dwell in a political no mans land wondering what happened since they were so moral and "took the high road". They are all too blinded by their hatred for Trump and his ability to do the things that they could never do that they would rather become pariahs and lepers in the political community than support someone who actually supports what they claim to stand for and represent. They will get what they deserve!

The line stretched a quarter-mile before the sun was barely up Saturday, snaking around corners like bread lines in the 1930s. But the hungry in Queens are today’s New Yorkers, left jobless by the coronavirus. Until the pandemic struck the city, La Jornada food pantry used to hand out groceries to roughly 1,000 families a week. Now, the figure tops 10,000. And volunteers serve lunch every day to 1,000—many of them kids with growling stomachs.(Snip) Seniors, moms and kids, singles—many immigrants from China and Mexico—wait for hours. They turn out in droves wherever, and whenever, the food pantry’s truck shows up.

The National Guard was called in to quell fiery riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin—as protesters defied a curfew to loot and destroy a mostly black business area they are supposedly trying to defend following the police shooting of a local black man. Democratic Gov. Tony Evers summoned 125 members of the National Guard Monday after protesters set cars on fire, smashed windows and clashed with officers in riot gear Sunday after the shooting of Jacob Blake. But that and a dusk-to-dawn curfew did not stop the city from exploding once again on Monday night—with blazes set near the scene of Blake’s shooting

Manila—Philippine military officials say Muslim militants allied with the Islamic State group have set off a powerful motorcycle explosive followed by a suicide bombing that together killed 14 people, many of them soldiers. It was the worst extremist attack in the Philippines this year. A regional military commander says at least 75 soldiers, police and civilians were wounded in the midday attacks in southern Sulu province. The bombings were staged as the government grapples with the highest number of coronavirus cases in Southeast Asia.

After looters crashed through his floor-to-ceiling windows and stole $1 million worth of booze in May, Chicago-Lake Liquors owner John Wolf wanted to protect himself from a repeat occurrence. Like property owners throughout the world, he wanted to install security shutters on the outside of his building. The investment would not only prevent rioters from entering his store, it would protect his windows—which cost $50,000 to replace. But Wolf ran into a big obstacle: The city of Minneapolis has barred security shutters on building exteriors since 2004. Unlike St. Paul, which allows external shutters as long as owners request a permit,

The NFL is preparing to end the use of military honor guards to present the American flag ahead of the national anthem, according to reports. A league source claims that the policy benching military, federal, and police guards is part of its COVID-19 response, according to Front Office Sports. “They won’t be on the field,” a source told the site. “That could change as the season progresses. But that’s the plan at the beginning.” It appears that there will be no flags on the field and the flag will only appear on electronic scoreboards during the playing of the national anthem, at least for the beginning of the season.

On the eve of the Republican convention, more than two dozen former GOP lawmakers endorsed Joe Biden for president. Trump Derangement Syndrome is spreading faster than COVID-19. Retired Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake makes his case for supporting Biden by claiming Trump “is not conservative,” that Biden “will approach his constitutional role with the reverence and dignity it deserves” and “reach across the aisle.” This is the same argument John Kasich, a former congressman and Ohio governor, made at the Democratic National Convention, when he reassured the public that Biden is “respectful” and won’t “turn sharp left” when he gets in

A new study published to the journal Scientific Reports suggests that moderate alcohol consumption is associated with slightly decreased brain volume. Scientists have long known that heavy alcohol use shrinks the brain, but it's not clear whether or not moderate drinking has a similar effect. Researchers from the University of Helsinki in Finland explored the possible link within a sample of 353 Finnish men and women aged 39 to 45. On average, the subject group reported moderate alcohol consumption, indicated by an AUDIT-C score of 3.92. Such a score is roughly equivalent to drinking two to four times a month, having between three and four drinks a session,

Clinton, who lost to Trump in the 2016 election and conceded the morning after the contest, said she believes this year's election will drag out for several days because of issues with voting during the pandemic. She told Showtime's The Circus that Biden would be wise to stay in the race long past Election Day.
