Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

Why is everyone still talking about those allegations? Both Trump and Biden were cleared as far as I know.

I was for a long time quite neutral in regards with the next USA president, but seeing the type of people who viciously support Trump while pretending they don't (why even bother if the level of bile you spout here is so obvious, you know who you are...) and going ballistic after anyone who dares to say anything, vaguely defamatory about Trump, I truly, really hope he will lose this time around.

Some people say it's all Trump's fault, I say Trump should have payed more attention to the kind of people his message got across to...

But 'believe women' is not my standard to uphold. I do not believe women, I find the idea ridiculous.

This is about holding people accountable to the standards they profess to support.
'believe women' is not a standard, it is a slogan.

Trump has a tendancy to bring out the worst in people. Don't we want a President that will bring out the best?

Well to be fair, Trump does a lot of stuff that generates banner headlines.

If you want to claim that the media has a pattern of behavior that ignores similar newsworthy Democrat stories then you need to give some examples, one such story is insufficient to demonstrate a pattern.

In the last few days we have heard tapes of Trump saying he ignored the evidence in February that the pandemic was six times more dangerous than flu. Today we heard that the Trump administration has been altering and delaying US CDC scientific reports on the status of COVID-19.

We also have the absurd situation of Trump blaming the State Governors for doing insufficient when he did not share with them in February the evidence that he had of the dangers.

Oh god....

-Trump is slammed for having two scoops of ice cream, his doctor's are called liars when they say he is in good physical shape...while nobody even seems to care that Biden can not put a coherent sentence together and is being coddled in his basement.....PS: Have we even scheduled a debate yet? It's 6-7 weeks to the election?

-so much was made of Trump and his kids profiting off the presidnecy. Nobody is asking about Biden's kid and Ukraine/China payoffs

-Trump's comments on Ivanka, it can only be interpreted as that of a lecherous man desiring incest with his daughter. Biden sniffing little girls hair and talking about his hairly...legs.....and nobody even bats an eye....Just Joe being Joe

I guess gestures weight less than words. With gestures, there's always some room for interpretation.....btw, in which parallel universe his joke about Ivanka's attractiveness is in any way appropriate?

Well, women are a lot easier to believe when they don't completely change their story. And no, this isn't about holding people accountable to the standards they profess to support. This about Joe Biden being accused of sexual assault by a woman who has completely changed her story -- a story for which there is no evidence. However, Biden has lived up to the standards that he professes to support. He asked for evidence and he asked for the allegations to be investigated. But clearly your mind perceives the issue through the lens of your cognitive bias, because you want Biden to be guilty. You wouldn't even make it onto the jury.
The trifecta of denial, arrogance and virtue signalling. This is why Trump will win again.

You seem to be firing off in multiple directions without much searching for facts.

Presidential (& VP) debate schedule here.

So you cannot point to any newsworthy Dem stories that were ignored and would create banner headlines?
If Biden chooses to sit in a safe place during a pandemic then how is that newsworthy? I am doing that too.

That story about Biden's kid and Ukraine/China payoffs is ancient history, it was well covered in the papers at the time but you do not sell many papers printing old stories.
There was a story in June
Quote:
An audit of thousands of old case files by Ukrainian prosecutors found no evidence of wrongdoing on the part of Hunter Biden, according to the former prosecutor general, who had launched the audit.

Why are you claiming there was no coverage about "Biden sniffing little girls hair", just google and you will find tons of coverage.

How's that in any way comparable with the attacks on people who dared to comment on Trump related threads.

What are you referring to? Will Trump win because people dare to comment here? You mean people who comment on American politics on an English speaking expat forum in Switzerland are responsible for what will happen in the US elections?

The biggest loser tonight, by far, is Mini Mike Bloomberg.
His “political” consultants took him for a ride. $700 million washed down the drain, and he got nothing for it but the nickname Mini Mike, and the complete destruction of his reputation.
Way to go Mike!

After the worst debate performance in the history of politics, Michael Bloomberg, commonly known as Mini Mike, is trying to make a comeback by begging the Democrats for relevance.
They treated him like a dog - and always will.
Before politics, he said GREAT things about me!
Probably he will not regret, regret does not seem to be in his repetoire.

Actually I am surprised that more rich people he attacked have not taken this easy revenge path, people like Bezos or Steve Jobs widow &&&&.

They're just being inclusive by including the cops in their death wish, and they're all entirely peaceful and empathetic. Tough luck if someone dies because access to ER is blocked, you can't have everything.

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

Does anyone think that Mr. Trump could come up with $100m to match Bloomberg? Given his record I seriously doubt anyone would lend him the money.

I certainly don’t approve of either trying to buy the election, but that’s the American way.

My cousin, LEO for the SoC, just told me they are not allowed to talk (fearing it may start a civil war) about the fact that they have arrested several antifa and blm protesters for starting some of the wildfires all along the I5 corridor. I hope these terrorists get life in prison.
Good luck with your gender identity in prison.


I got Trump as the clear winner, if I was a betting man.

60% of the forests in California and Oregon are federally owned.
If the Trump administration maintained them properly there would not be these huge fires.
