Do you see a problem here?? Censorship anyone?
This is rather the point, I don't think many people will realise the true cost of removing Donald Trump from office until it's too late.

It makes me feel grateful that the Democrats have managed to nominate a candidate who is so terrible that it's exciting until the end.
They would have done better with HRC.

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

@22yards

Some pollsters are forecasting Dems winning 20+ House seats and 6+ Senate seats.

Of course, there is push back from other pollsters who claim hidden Trump voters will spring out of their hiding places and hand Trump a win.

At this distance, it is hard to judge. It was already posted that early voting in Texas exceeds the total 2016 vote; as mentioned before who are these extra voters?

Hopefully, they are new voters and minorities who will form the anti-Trump landslide.

Well, I guess this puts the Hunter Biden scandal to bed... Fox News ran a show saying that they had lost the supposedly damning documents, hard evidence of the scandal, in the mail. You couldn't make it up. Oh wait... they just did.
Goodness, some people can lie right to your face, all eyes on them and wouldn't even blink. "The dog has eaten my homework!"....

That "homework" was recovered... The question is: Why did the media (or most media) not cover this story?

Okay... So Trump and his family are fair game but Biden..well..according to you, he is beyond reproach. Can you prove that his father, good ole Joe, had "no knowledge", as he claimed, of his family's business matters despite evidence to the contrary?

Please! Biden is part of the Swamp and Trump is also corrupt - albeit in a different way. Both have abused their position to their benefit.

I cannot believe that you think Joe is sacrosanct? Add to that his dementia/cognitive issues... Wow! What a great choice we have for President

I am typically an optimist but troubling times lie ahead for the US in the near future...

I don't have to prove anything. It is Fat Donny who has to prove that he did anything to make the US a better place compared to what it was 4 years ago.

Hmmm... So let's deflect from Biden here as it suits you to do so!

"Fat Donny" has his own issues but so does Biden - and, in my view, there is no way he had "no knowledge" of Hunter and his brother's business affairs as he claims - which makes him just as scum worthy as "Donny". Biden is more likable/genial but just as sleazy. He just puts on a pleasant persona and uses a different approach but I believe he used his position as VP to benefit his family. And to me, that is reprehensible on all levels.

And the fact that very few media outlets are reporting this? Well, shame on them!

Whether or not he knew his son was involved in some nasty business is completely irrelevant. If anyone claims he WAS involved in his sons dealings, the onus of proving it is on the accuser. One can't "prove" you were not involved in something.

Not only is Trump failing to protect his citizens, but he is also lying about the progress of the pandemic.

101,461 new cases and 988 new deaths in the US yesterday.
9,207 new cases and 77 new deaths in Switzerland yesterday, meaning Switzerland does approx. 3 times as bad as the US

Switzerland also isn't doing great with COVID infections at the moment, but what does that have to do with Trump? Or are you suggesting that because CH also has problems in the last few weeks that Trump is somehow not so bad and deserved a break?

Trump is doing bad in many aspects but the sad reality is that we are doing worse now in handling Covid, if you look at the numbers.

One of the most sacred principles in the American criminal justice system, holding that a defendant is innocent until proven guilty. In other words, the prosecution must prove, beyond a reasonable doubt, each essential element of the crime charged.

I fully understand that this ‘most sacred principle’ in reality applies only to those with money, but missing evidence is missing evidence. If it’s true, prove it. If you can’t then stop suggesting it is.

I agree with this notion - it would be too simple to just attribute mortality to one presidential decision, more so in places like US or CH, which historically thrive on federalism. It's complex, no matter of the desire (of media, mainly) to find one scapegoat to blame it on.

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

How a fake persona laid the groundwork for a Hunter Biden conspiracy deluge
https://www.nbcnews.com/tech/securit...eluge-n1245387

"One month before a purported leak of files from Hunter Biden's laptop, a fake "intelligence" document about him went viral on the right-wing internet, asserting an elaborate conspiracy theory involving former Vice President Joe Biden's son and business in China.

The document, a 64-page composition that was later disseminated by close associates of President Donald Trump, appears to be the work of a fake "intelligence firm" called Typhoon Investigations, according to researchers and public documents.

The author of the document, a self-identified Swiss security analyst named Martin Aspen, is a fabricated identity, according to analysis by disinformation researchers, who also concluded that Aspen's profile picture was created with an artificial intelligence face generator. The intelligence firm that Aspen lists as his previous employer said that no one by that name had ever worked for the company and that no one by that name lives in Switzerland, according to public records and social media searches." ..........
