    I agree with you. There are obviously several mentally incompetent democrat (socialists) here. We should not take them seriously and arguing with mentally incompetent individuals is doing none of us any good.

    This argument is over

    In a way it's actually true, he wants to unite the nation but without having to compromise on a single issue. Joe Biden is the most radical left wing president USA ever seen.

    Unfit President

    Impeachment is the only line of defense (well, maybe the 25th amendment, also) against an unfit president. For an unprecedented time, this happened twice to DJT. There is no taking it back. The one article of impeachment for inciting insurrection will be delivered to the US Senate. A TRIAL is scheduled to begin on February 9th. Impeachment managers will unfold a multimedia extravaganza, with " a huge trove of video and photos depicting the event" lest senators get bored like impeachment 1. 0. The main video features DJT himself inciting the attack with snarling glee, promising to, but neglecting to lead the way. The trial is unlikely to succeed in a conviction, and Republicans daring to vote for conviction will face the consequences. Don't touch that dial: the Biden administration, boring. No drama. Except for 38 US Capitol Police testing positive for Covid 19 after the Capitol Riot on January 6th.

    Nope, you're completely wrong. Probably brainwashed by the liberal media and unable to think for yourself.

    Things don't happen in a vacuum. Radicals inspires radicals. A summer of far left violence will inspire and encourage the far right to act. But most importantly, adults needs to take responsibility for their own actions. Trump didn't storm the Capitol, neither did he explicitly tell anyone to storm the Capitol. This is all just a ridiculous witch-hunt. What happened with free speech? Trump can be proud, he did nothing wrong and the biggest losers in all of this will be the American people. 2021 might go to history as the year when USA threw free speech out the window.

    I'm still waiting for the day when the liberal politicians will take responsibility for their own actions. They started the conspiracy theories and ridiculed US elections by claiming that Russia stole the election and Trump was a "illegitimate" president. The liberals opened the door for the idea that US elections can be rigged.

    It's sad to see how some people are so incredibly brainwashed by the liberal media.

    "During his first hours in office, Biden signed an executive order calling on all federal agencies to ensure that people who identify as the opposite sex should be free to use whatever changing room or 'restroom' they wish to. And that school sports must sign up to 'combat discrimination on the basis of gender identity'.

    There is something of the late Roman empire about this, the arrogance of a ruling elite in terminal decline. The world's most powerful man gets into office at a time of unprecedented crisis and one of his first priorities is to ensure that men who identify as women should be allowed to use female changing rooms and pulverise any woman he comes across in competitive sports. All in the name of equality, obviously. ".

    Biden has no say in the impeachment process so he cannot call it off. Trump would be better off pleading guilty as it would give Biden the opportunity to offer him a pardon for Federal offences. Trump is going to be sued civilly and criminally for a wide range of offences so there is not going to be a quick end to this.

    Trump failed in pretty much everything he has done. His China trade war and his global trade policies have had no impact in increased manufacturing in the US its just been shuffled to other third world countries. The current account deficit is still expanding. Trump had a golden opportunity to shrink US military expenditures and shrink the military but failed to do so.

Compare that with Al Gore in 2000, who lost Florida and the presidency by 500 votes. We expect more of any politician of any color. Trump alone is responsible for his words on Jan 6th and prior, no matter how much he was harrassed.

    In hindsight, most Americans view their presidents positively. They are woven in their lives. It makes perfect sense. I diagree with what you claim to be an "undoubtable" truth. Trump's legacy will be the infamy of Jan 6th, 2021, sadly. Americans are unforgiving in this respect. Nixon had his merits, but his reputation never recovered. Lincoln is a saint for somehow weaving the country back together. Wilson won a war, as did Truman. Reagan and George W. Bush were very good persons and loving spouses. Reagan finished communism off. George Bush oversaw unification of Germany. Clinton was handsome and balanced the budget with Newt. George W. Invested in Africa and in American children, also managed 911 admirably..
    Exactly. No matter the controversies, most Presidents eventually garner a respectable level of bipartisan adoration in hindsight; the pros and cons of Trump's presidency will just not measure up for that to happen. The January 6th event is the final nail in the coffin to hammer that fact legacy, although I think the legacy was probably already cemented.

    His Presidency has pushed away a generation of future conservatives. As a conservative-leaner myself, the decision of so many of my peers to support this man despite logically understanding and seeing how he has bastardized the conservative brand and waged cultural warfare worse than anything that modern Democrats have done has made me question if rational conservatism is dead. While I know many conservative voters who publicly rebuke this man, most end up still casting a vote for him because they fear that the alternative is worse. I luke warmly disagree.

    Republicanism is alive and well, Trumpism is dead

    But democrats and the left will be wrong to assume a lot of the tenets of Trumpism are dead.

    Whether it was the attention paod the working class, the manufacturing rennaisance, the China and globalization and trade policy, NATO spending, no judicial activism policy, the development zones policy or so much more, these policies should have a champion as they deserve to be presented as a choice to the american public.

    I agree, but would not call that Trumpism any more. It may become Pencism or Rubioism or if the hot and smart Nikky Haley runs Haleyism. Trumpism includes insult as a method to penetrate in all its forms. It is a losing proposition. He pulled it off against Hillary Clinton. As long as the Democrats nominate centrists like Clinton, Obama or Biden, they will always beat Trumpism. Biden will be in trouble soon. And. Korea. The Europeans. Eastern Ukraine. The deficit. Elitism will resurge among the liberals, like that idiot with the Dior Jordans for 5 000 bucks. May a good Republican rise to the occasion.

Are you liberals proud of yourself for your beliefs that defunding the police, open borders, abolish ice, transgender men or women in children bathrooms. Is this really the values of Americans who care for their country? Who care to keep children safe? Do you really believe that we should allow millions of people to come into our country and take jobs away from our citizens? Our kids? Our friends? Why do you hate the American way of life? Do you really think your parents would be proud of your thinking? Do you really believe that your parents and grandparents were all racist and their history should be abolished? Why are you still living in such a horrible country that needs all these changes. Do you really believe that this will make America better? If you are proud of this it pretty much sums up who you are.
    Biden has been in office less than a week so your comments about Biden doing nothing shows that you are not even going to give the guy a chance. Trump had 4 years and was a complete failure.

    Keep this in mind: a mafia boss with temporary presidential immunity from the justice department and dangling the pardon power for federal crimes in front of his co conspirators will not be convicted by a Senate controlled by his party.
    The Mueller report is relevant and will lead to legal trouble for the former president. But there are also problems. The Russian government rightly concluded that the former president was less biased against them than his opponent. Mrs. Clinton's book seethes with anti-Russian sentiment. To rout for Trump is nothing unusual. Many Europeans routed for Clinton. Her husband had a much better hand in Strobe Talbott to handle things Russia. The Russian government has neither the power nor the wherewithal to impact US elections. Russian engages in asymmetric warfare which includes cybercrime abroad. And they tried to influence the US elections, which is and was foolish. But did that meaningfully impact the outcome? No. Mrs Clinton lost because she could not articulate why she ran (this is a quote from the current president). Because she was elevated by her husband onto a stage she could not fill. Because she used computers with the intent to hide her communications, a practice that would have gotten me fired in my assignments. Because of general skepticism with male and female US voters who for various reasons prefer men. Special prosectors burn up a lot of money and veer off target, whether their name is Walsh or Starr or Mueller. It is a sharp sword that ought to be wielded with caution. Walsh annoyed me because Reagan had fired the contrite Poindexter and North anyway. Starr invoked the breach of oath in a mutually consentual sex case. That to me is an insult to the cultural history of mankind akin to prohibiting alcohol. Just stupid. Clinton was wrong, in practice and taste, to do it with that chubby lady. Mueller I think is a very good man who caught a bunch of crooks, the former president included. But the premise that Russia swayed the elections is ludicrous.

    A poster case in whataboutism

    Things do not happen in a vacuum. The Democrats didn't accept the result of the election in 2016. They repeatedly attacked the legitimacy of the president and the election. They basically claimed that the election was stolen by Russia and Trump wasn't the legitimate president.

    Trump did what the Democrats had done against him. I support him to 100 percent.

    Also, you don't think that all the violence and disorder supported by the liberals and carried out by BLM / antifa had any effect on the far right?

    The liberals turned the heat on, first by attacking the election in 2016 and then by attacking American cities in 2019.

    I've said it before and I will say it again, the liberals are turning USA into a third world country.

    Labor Unions That Endorsed Biden Now Lashing Out At Him Thousands of jobs lost. . .

    Kiss those $75 k per year starting pay on the Keystone Oil pipeline goodbye!

    "Joe Biden has already made labor unions regret their support for him. During his first day in office, Biden revoked the construction permit for the Keystone XL oil pipeline, destroying thousands of jobs.

    TC Energy Corp. , the Canadian company sharing ownership of the pipeline with the Alberta government, had estimated that 10,000 jobs would be created in 2021 thanks to the construction of the pipeline.

    A total of 42,000 jobs were to be filled once the pipeline was completed.

    The Laborer's International Union Of North America issued this statement:"The Biden decision to cancel the Keystone XL pipeline permit on day one of his presidency is both insulting and disappointing to the thousands of hard-working LIUNA members who will lose good-paying, middle-class family-supporting jobs.

    "By pandering to environmental extremists, a thousand union jobs will immediately vanish and 10,000 additional jobs will be foregone."

    This comes after LIUNA bragged about pushing Biden "over the top" in 2020:

    The North American Building Trades Union said: "North America's Building Trades Unions are deeply disappointed in the decision to cancel the Keystone XL permit on the President's first day in office. Environmental ideologues have prevailed, and over a thousand union men and women have been terminated from employment on the project.

    The United Association Of Union Plumbers and Pipefitters released this statement:"In revoking this permit, the Biden Administration has chosen to listen to the voices of fringe activists instead of union members and the American consumer on Day 1. ". . . Full article:

    Looking at what Biden is saying and what people he's nominating I think it's rather clear that Biden is by no means a moderate. He's a left-wing extremist who would be consider too extreme by most European countries.
    No doubt you would have made the same loopy analysis to claim moderate Bill Clinton and moderate Jimmy Carter were really wildly left extremists.

    Biden was one of the moderates among the 2016 democratic candidates. And he remains a moderate democrat today, despite what his opponents try to paint him as day to day for the convenience of matching the day's talking points.
