Hey, just remember, President Trump is a former Democrat. Why don't the media refer to President Trump as :"former Democrat, President Trump". Big deal and get over it Michael Steele. You are no more a Republican than Bernie Sanders is a Democrat.

They've already edited his Wiki page to read, "...is an American conservative political commentator, attorney, and former Republican Party politician. " Did you know that his sister, Monica Turner, was married (and divorced) to Mike Tyson (50-6-44 KOs)? The Lincoln Project, ha ha ha.

All the "Republicans" in the Lincoln Project are losers....so not surprised Michael Steele, failed leader of the RNC, joined them. As the head of RNC he had no original vision, no leadership abilities - he was a figurehead, a failed one at that. Thank you for going away!

Presume he found he didn't really resonate any longer in the Republican party that wants to win, and actually improve things. Bet he believes there was actually Russian collusion with the Trump campaign even though Mueller couldn't find any, and 57 first-hand witnesses testified under oath, including Clapper, Yates, Rice and others, would not commit perjury.

What will Steel do this time when Trump wins? He will of no use to MSNBC or CNN. Democrats won't care to have him. He washed out as a fake Republican. He has made himself pretty much useless to everyone. Maybe he will become a "peaceful" protester and get Pepper sprayed and tear-gassed. He'll look silly as can be holding his clenched fist in black-power salute after flacking for white power all of his career.

Did Steele forget that it was demonrat Chuckie Schumer who illegally got his SS # and attempted to do a credit check on him? Chuckie never even suffered any consequences for it. That's the "different rules for different folks" rearing its ugly head again. It's just gotten worse since his felonious activity.

A Pandemic of Socialism 13 replies
Posted by tisHimself 8/24/2020 7:02:50 AM Post Reply
In mid-March of 2020, the United States of America became a socialist country, despite President Trump's promise in his State of the Union address one year prior. To those who lost their non-essential jobs, those who met empty shelves, those who discovered that their "free" education was too costly, those driven insane by incessant fear-mongering, and those faced with capricious and nonsensical restrictions — welcome to socialism. Deceived by the arrogance of science and appeal to authority, or perhaps with false science to mask nefarious motives, public health and safety were used as a contrivance to replace liberty, freedom, and democracy with the Game of Socialism

A group of community activists implored Gov. J.B. Pritzker to declare a state of emergency and have the Illinois National Guard deployed to Chicago on Sunday, just two days after Mayor Lori Lightfoot and her allies stymied a similar push during a special City Council meeting. In calling for the assistance, the activists pointed to the city’s surging summer gun violence as they urged both members of the City Council and Congress to rally behind police officers they claim have been outnumbered and attacked at recent protests.

There was a fascinating interview with Soviet KGB defector Yuri Bezmenov in 1984 in which he foretold in unerring detail the exact social and political scenarios that would exist in America in the near future. His contention was that the KGB was involved primarily not in espionage, but in an activity that he called "ideological subversion." According to Bezmenov, the KGB's goal was to take down America by slowly changing the minds of the population from within. He said the Soviet Union was producing Marxist-Leninist thoughts that are "being pumped into the heads of American students without [those thoughts] being counterbalanced by American/capitalistic values."

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.

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,

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
