    'Artificially inflated hatred?'

    Pretty sure when the leader of the country lies about the dangers of a deadly pandemic, lies that lead to a loss of American lives that is estimated to be in the hundreds of thousands, there was nothing artificial about the anger that Americans feel towards Trump's leadership.

    Maybe someday, his cult can acknowledge his errors in judgement during that time period to understand that, like his many crimes, his reelection failures were of his own doing.  Trump usually chooses the wrong path.  In 2016, he chose to cheat by using his business to violate campaign finance laws and his election chose to collude with Russia.  In 2020, he chose to lie and to put his own reelection interests ahead of the good of the country during a global health crisis.

    Both men will have to run on their records and each man has flaws in that record.  America had problems at the end of both men's terms.  But both men will also have to run on their character.  To some Americans, character still matters.  And an adulterer, sexual assaulter, constant liar, and business fraudster just isn't someone many in America will ever trust to hold the presidency.  It's a sad state that so many will ignore those qualities in their preferred leader.

    Damn, this must piss MAGA off to no end.  Biden has illegal immigration down 54% according to CBS from December highs in just 5 months!!!!  Boy, he is good.

      Not difficult, was it?  Just declare that everyone is legal and Presto!  No more illegals!

    Ah, the great things Biden has done.  Well, there is out of bounds inflation.  Food prices are steadily increasing.   It isn't getting any better folks.  In fact, it has gotten drastically worse.   Illegals are bombarding America-further exacerbating American infrastructures while simultaneously increasing the crime rates.   Did I mention Biden is creating debt for America by giving money which could be used to improve America?    Biden is creating an abysmal society for America.   Yeah, Biden is doing a ..........job!

      "Well, there is out of bounds inflation.  " - FACT: Biden isn't responsible for inflation.  People who understand economics know that.

      "Food prices are steadily increasing. " - FACT: Food prices (which is the same as your first point and therefore redundant) have been coming down as corporate greed learns people will revolt.

      "In fact, it has gotten drastically worse." - FACT: Not true

      " Illegals are bombarding America-further exacerbating American infrastructures while simultaneously increasing the crime rates. " - FACT: Illegal border crossings are down 54% from the December high and are probably lower than some of Trump's numbers now.  American crime rates have been decreasing under Biden.

      " Did I mention Biden is creating debt for America by giving money which could be used to improve America? " - DID YOU mention that  Did I mention Trump is creating debt for America by giving money which could be used to improve America?  At least Biden got the bipartisan Infrastructure bill passed which Trump Promised but FAILED to deliver (among a whole lot of other things he failed at including being President)

      "Biden is creating an abysmal society for America. " - IF BY ABYSMAL you mean lower crime and a better economy, then I agree.

        FACT: Biden is the single biggest reason for our inflation, though there are several.  People that understand basic economics (lower supply while increasing demand = inflation) know that.

        FACT: food prices are NOT coming down, but still rising.  The worst is "eating out food" but grocery stores are still going up as well.  Claiming differently will not change that.

        FACT the rate of people crossing our southern border is NOT going down appreciably. That Biden does not call them "illegal" does not change that.

        IF BY ABYSMAL I'm thinking she means sky high crime rates and a decreasing standard of living.  Both of which we are seeing.

          The first statement is not a fact at all, but a biased opinion.  Especially when you clearly state lower supply is part of the equation, and that lower supply happened well before Biden assumed the presidency.  Your own argument undermines your 'facts.'

          If the crime rates are dropping, as the stats have been showing, that would mean the 'sky high rates' mentioned were created by someone else.

          Americans tend to believe crime is up, even when official data shows it is down.  In 23 of 27 Gallup surveys conducted since 1993, at least 60% of U.S. adults have said there is more crime nationally than there was the year before, despite the downward trend in crime rates during most of that period.

          Likely from the 'if it bleeds, it leads' mindset of the local and national media.

            Like so much of the claptrap your government feeds us, crime figures are false to fact.  All it takes it to carefully choose just which type of crime will be reported and voila! - crime is dropping! 

            As an example, explain, please, that shoplifting cases are dropping, as are the amounts stolen. 

            Just like the inflation figures, they are carefully massaged to give the message government wants you to believe...and you swallow it whole without ever looking around you.

          We have asked before, but you never answer - Exactly what policies did Biden implement between Feb 2021 and Jun 2021 that CAUSED supply to lower and demand to increase.  You say it is FACTUAL that he did - but you provide no evidence as usual.  POLICIES PLEASE.

          You used the wrong FACTS about food prices. "Food Prices Stayed Flat in April; Groceries Actually Declined" - https://www.nerdwallet.com/article/fina … 6da5cfe624 (That is how you provide evidence, try it sometime, you might like it)

          You really should gather (and present facts) before claiming them. "During the first 21 days of May, U.S. Border Patrol agents recorded a daily average of approximately 3,700 apprehensions of migrants between official ports of entry. That represents a 54% decrease from the 8,000 daily average in December, when illegal entries soared to a quarter of a million, an all-time high." - https://www.cbsnews.com/news/immigratio … me%20high. (Unfortunately, I suspect you will keep spreading Conservative myths about the border.)

          Once again, you are DEVOID of evidence, this time with your Conservative MYTH that crime is, how did you say it, "sky high".  Behold - "Violent Crime Is Falling Nationwide — Here’s How We Know
          https://www.brennancenter.org/our-work/ … t,crime%20(down%204.3%20percent).

          Preliminary FBI data, however imperfect, confirms a sharp downward trend in crime, undercutting attempts to blame criminal justice reform for pandemic-era spikes in violence."


          You changed the argument again, we weren't talking about Standard of Living, were we? We were talking about Economic Growth.

          Nevertheless, It looks like you failed on your last Non-Factual claim even using your new measure, that standard of living is going down.  At least according the Saint Louis Federal Reserve it isn't.  They say "One way to measure the improvement in the living standards of a country is by looking at the growth rate of its gross domestic product (GDP) per capita.1 This measure can be decomposed into:

          The growth rate of GDP per hour worked (a measure of labor productivity)

          The growth rate of the number of hours per capita (a measure of the extent of labor utilization)"


          Well, if we look at American GDP per capita (which you like a lot) it shows nice growth, not decline that you claim as Fact. 

          2019 - $65.5 K Trump
          2020 - $64.4 K Trump
          2021 - $71.0 K Biden
          2022 - $77.2 K Biden
          2023 - $81.6 K Biden

          Why don't you use FACTS like these to prove your point?
          2024 - $85.4 K

            Prevent people from working.  That reduces supply

            Give trillions away to people.  That increases demand. 

            I really am surprised that you don't know these simple facts.

                The only odd thing is that I know that you know those simple facts about inflationary causes.  And I know you know that Biden was behind a lot of both.

                What I don't understand is why you deny that reducing supply while increasing demand causes inflation, and why you deny that Biden did both with his closure of millions of jobs while actually increasing what people took home in many cases with "unemployment" (actually simply more welfare) that was way out of line with reality.  Coupled, of course, with a $T giveaway to people that never did lose a day's work.

                  "And I know you know that Biden was behind a lot of both." - AGAIN, once you provide me the policies that Biden put in place in the first four months of his presidency that drove either or both low supply accompanied by high demand, it will be clear to all you are just reposting Conservative myths.

                  Also, it would be nice if you stopped putting words in others mouths.  You CLAIM I deny "reducing supply while increasing demand causes inflation".  Well, I know you read well enough to know I never said that.

                  My extensive economic training taught me a variation of your absolute declaration of what (singular) causes inflation.  What I was trained to know is that "reducing supply while increasing demand is one of the causes inflation" - it is not the only one as you appear to imply.

                  So, are you trying to imply that the trillions of dollars from Trump's rescue plan and Biden's rescue plan went mostly to people who were still working? That is what "Coupled, of course, with a $T giveaway to people that never did lose a day's work." tells me you are trying to say.   -  IF SO, prove it, just don't say it.

            From the link you posted:  "Food prices have always been volatile — especially so during the pandemic. Thanks to a combination of inflation, supply-chain disruptions and tariffs on certain foreign imports, food prices have steadily risen since 2020.

            Overall, prices are still higher than last year. But inflation has been slowing, and the latest data shows the cost of groceries, at least, isn’t rising as fast as it once was."

            Tell me again about using links to prove what you say?

                Except I DID read it didn't I?  And found that your "proof" that groceries were not inflating was untrue despite all your claims that it was a proven fact.

                  So perhaps this is a good time to do a real rundown of what the Biden Administration has/is doing based on seriousness of the harm/impact it is/will have... how about a top 5:

                  1) WWIII - Russia has stated in recent announcements that it is at war with NATO/America.  Attacks from Ukraine now strike within Russia regularly, the latest was a series of missile strikes against ICBM Radar whose intent is to protect Russia from long range nuclear missile strikes... the radar is practically useless in the war against Ukraine... clearly Ukraine/NATO is choosing targets that will have no impact on the outcome of its war, unless the plans are for that war to be escalated.

                  2) BRICS - Driving our allies into China/Russia's arms.  In addition to destroying Germany's cheap energy source (greatly impacting their economy) we have pushed Russia and China into one another's arms, and then the Biden Administration alienated the UAE and Saudi Arabia so much they joined BRICS this past January. 

                  3) Open Borders - over ten million foreigners are now in America, many of them on some sort of Social Services, at a time when businesses are closing and hundreds of thousands are being laid off.

                  4) Inflation - Its the economy stupid.  The inflation from 2022 and 2023 doesn't go away.  That it has already creeped back up to 4% while interest rates are readying to go higher is because the Biden Administration is spending 1 Trillion (with a T) dollars more every 100 days than the country is taking in... and with the interest rates on the national debt rising, that threatens to collapse our economy and our banking system.

                  5) Then there is the funding of Iran, which is essentially the funding of Hamas, the Houthis and Hezbollah... which, as you may be aware, has helped cause some hostilities in the Middle East.  The Biden Administration rescinded all of Trump's sanctions, while at the same time, sending Iran billions of dollars repeatedly over the last 3.5 years... despite their hostilities.

      I think we need to put Biden back in office.

      I'm serious... we need Biden's return.

      Lets finish this, lets get our fall and failure over with.

      So we can get about the business of doing away with all of this idiocy and flush out all that support it.


      The Biden Administration's horrible foreign policy decisions have fueled the rise of the Taliban and instigated Russia's escalating aggression against Ukraine.

      China continues to ramp up its aggression against Taiwan, Hong Kong, and the Uyghurs.

      Iran continues to fund the Houthis, Hamas, and Hezbollah with the hundreds of billions the Biden Administration allowed to flow to it.

      The Keystone XL pipeline would have created thousands of jobs, helped maintain the United States' global dominance, and transport oil from Canada, an ally and one of the world's cleanest oil producers, to U.S. refineries.

      President Biden has allowed in more foreigners illegally into America than the total population of 32 different States.

      A result of the Biden Administration reversing President Trump's successful border security and immigration policies and joining the UN Compact on Migration.

      As a bonus to having open borders fentanyl overdoses are now the leading cause of death for Americans aged 18-45.

      Thanks to Democrats' and Soros funded AGs discontent for the rule of law, violent crimes are increasing and implemented anti-law enforcement policies incentivize malicious behavior and let criminals back into their communities.

      The Fraternal Order of Police reports that in 2021, there were 346 officers shot in the line of duty, 63 of these officers died from their wounds. There were also 103 ambush-style attacks on law enforcement officers, a 115% increase from 2020 which was up 76% from 2019.

      And don't forget how the Biden Administration's vaccine and masking mandates and extended lockdowns made our lives so much better.

      Lets give the Biden Administration another 4 years to 'finish the job'... maybe America really does need a 'Great Reset'.

      Just not the one that is planned:

        Now we agree on something - Biden does need to get re-elected.

        "The Biden Administration's horrible foreign policy decisions ..." - NonFactual, e.g. fabricated.  If anybody is responsible for the rise of the Taliban, it is Bush, Obama, and cemented by Trump.

        "China continues to ramp up its aggression against Taiwan ..." - YOU are pretending Biden is God again.  Only Trump has made that claim.

        "Iran continues to fund the Houthis, Hamas, and Hezbollah with the hundreds of billions the Biden Administration allowed to flow to it." - Once again non-FACTUAL.

        "A result of the Biden Administration reversing President Trump's successful border security and immigration policies and joining the UN Compact on Migration." - non-FACTUAL. Actually, Biden kept in place virtually all of Trump's border policies.  You may be pissed off that he DID stop ripping babies from mother's arms, but for the most part, they are the same policies.  As to the UN thing.  That tells me you oppose the effort to "manage international migration in a comprehensive way. " and "facilitating safe and orderly migration, while reducing the negative effects of irregular migration."   That is interesting that you are against that.

        "As a bonus to having open borders fentanyl overdoses are now the leading cause of death for Americans aged 18-45." - SHOULD read "As a bonus to Conservatives encouraging open borders by lying about Biden's policies, fentanyl overdoses are now the leading cause of death for Americans aged 18-45."

        "Thanks to Democrats' and Soros funded AGs discontent ..." - non-FACTUAL

        The FOP needs a forum on its own to fully lay out the facts.

        "And don't forget how the Biden Administration's vaccine " - Again non-FACTUAL..  The TRUTH is Biden didn't extend the lockdowns, they were already over allowing thousands more to die. Where masking was allowed, it SAVED thousands of lives, however because of his masking mandates.  What is Ironic is that the only people who suffered from ignoring masking and vaccines were Conservatives.  I bet enough of them who effectively committed suicide impacted or will negatively impact an election or two in swing states.
