    By the way you need to reread your US Constitution as Article 4 Section 4 states


    The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive against domestic Violence.


    This gives the President every authority to protect citizens in this country against the fascist groups like Antifa who are using violence in their so-called "peaceful protests" aka riots.


    Also note the form of government, it doesn't say Democracy, it says a Republican form of government which is governance by the will of the people to represent the people.

    The FBI determined there was no "sans Russian influence". So you spin your words to make it look like you accept the election but the words are "you don't accept the election". Done. Enough. I accepted 0bummer and I respect the Office of President of the United States no matter who gets in the office. That is the difference, you only respect the office when it is someone on the left because you don't accept there was no Russian collusion. As you still tout the demoncrat party line. Denial. So you don't accept the election. You haven't accepted the last election so how can you even accept the next. Let's say Biden does win. In four years there will be another election, what happens if your boy/girl doesn't win, what will be the left's issue then? You already used Russian collusion. This isn't about the person it is about the left not having the office and power that that office controls. And therein lies the rub. The person with the R behind the name becomes the focal point taking away from the true agenda and reason. This a KKKommie tactic that Ayres taught to his followers like 0Bumer. I would accept Biden's election results but are we voting for Biden or his handlers? That becomes the question of the day. Between the two Biden is the least mentally fit for office as Reagan proved in his latter years with his Alzheimer's condition. 

  6. The numbers are incorrect and jacked up. How many died not from COVID but from some other affliction but is tallied as a COVID death? 



    My husband just called me. He left for work, got gas in town. Went into the store, opened door for a nurse going in. He said to her, "no mask"? She rolled her eyes and said, "not after we just sent in 70 unopened tests and they came back positive"! What the hell is going on?- Deborah W. Schneider, Twitter 7:13 AM · Jul 29, 2020

    NYC counted all deaths away from a hospital as a COVID death. Nurses in NYC have come out, long before the Capitol Hill presser by the doctors, and they have done it on Youtube but Youtube have taken these videos down as fast as they have gone up. 


    Individuals in Florida are reporting that they have received letters for testing  positive for COVID but never took the test to determine if they were infected. 


    The CDC, recently, rolled back the numbers for COVID deaths, thus admitting the numbers were false in the fire rst place.


    Hotspots are only occurring in certain places that will carry weight with the 2020 election. And to top this off the new talking point on the demoncrat side is that because black people are affected more than any other group of people, they should be allowed to mail in their votes. Repubes are beginning to go along with this narrative in order to get rid of Trump.


    Teachers who fear getting COVID have been seen at rallies, protests and riots WITHOUT wearing masks. Wouldn't it make America Great Again if it were realized that home-schooling turned out better than in-person schooling? The other factor in this is that teachers of higher learning have maintained that degrees from online schools are weaker than in-person schools. Wouldn't it be funny that these teachers were forced to find out that online school degrees are not only stronger than inperson school degrees but employable skills are retained much more than at inperson schools? So what is the reason for teachers not going back when those under 40 are exponentially less likely to contract COVID-19.


    The study to show how average consumer masks are ineffective against COVID, due the size of the virus, smaller than 125 microns,  being smaller than the pores of the mask, was retracted in favor of studies that show the opposite. 


    How the HCQ has systematically banned in the USA as an early treatment choice not by the AMA but by politicians leading to the fact there is something else driving the reason for the bans and its not because of COVID.


    How the second spike did not come in the Fall like which was projected but came in June/July. And now Dr. Fraudci is promoting the use of GOGGLES in addition to the masks.


    How early reports of the origins of COVID were that it was man-made and weaponized but that was suppressed very early on (Jan 2020) and slowly the reports have trickled out that the initial reporting that this was a man-made weaponized virus were ultimately true. And how the virus got into the Hands of the Chinese through a Chinese scientist was true.


    How the COVID pandemic became a godsend for those against Trump but has turned into a nightmare for them but since they are committed they are forced to continue with the game plan. A game plan that was supposed to play out by July 4th but because not seeing the results as expected, created an "early second wave" of the pandemic.


    This whole thing has been contrived by man to be implemented as a way to cause fear and control the masses as a study once discovered that Americans and Europeans feared a bioweapon attack as much or greater than they did a nuclear attack because it was more likely a bioweapon attack would occur in their minds. 


    This whole pandemic is nothing but fear used to control the masses in America and in Europe. It is being used to promote governments as the people's only solution and to destroy capitalism and a free market system. Yet it is the private industry sector contracted by governments that will come up with the eventual vaccine for the China Virus. How ironic.

    GO RV, then BV 

    So you are saying you could accept the election results, since questioning an election is a threat to democracy (Hitlary's words) and accept Trump as your duly elected President. Or you could go the fascist route and spin and play word games and attack people through insinuation and when they attack back feign that you took the high road.

  8. You have also never forgotten a thing a day in your life. Yeah you are better than maybe an amoeba but not anyone or anything else. I didn't whine. I used it as an example to start a discussion. Unlike you, while others have talked about that, you have consistently attacked me. You aren't about the topic you are about attacking people on here. And that is why you will always be what I have said you are. And to think that you are part of the dinarvets staff. Bah!

    So in other words you are better than everyone else?

Nor was it said that I went through the drive thru.  Maybe instead of being braggadocious that you work on your reading comprehension and retention skills. But its always about "me, me, me" right?

    And if you think I got my arse handed to me by a bunch of yucks getting off on their power trip you missed the point of them not requiring the mask at the drive thru window, which by the way is not within the 6 feet social distancing mandate. Nor did you get the point of me putting the mask "over" my mouth and nose as was yelled at me. But then again amoeba's would be genius and have more intellect to figure that one out.

    The 5 Biggest Controversies of Eric Holder's Term as Attorney General

    From Fast and Furious to the 9/11 mastermind, Holder's most-disputed moves.

    — -- intro: Almost as soon as he was confirmed, it was clear that Attorney General Eric Holder’s tenure would be beset by controversy.

    In February 2009, his provocative statement -- “in things racial we have always been and I believe continue to be, in too many ways, essentially a nation of cowards” -- roiled many.

    As one of President Obama’s longest-serving and most-trusted advisers, Holder, who today announced he would step down from the post he has held for five-and-a-half years, has long been a favorite punching bag for the right.

    Here’s a look at the five biggest controversies during his time at the Justice Department.


    As one of president Obama’s longest-serving and most-trusted advisers, Holder has long been a favorite punching bag for the right.


    Here’s a look at the five biggest controversies during his time at the Justice Department:



    1. 9/11 MASTERMINDSIf Holder had his way, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the mastermind of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, might now be on death row. But staunch political opposition to Holder's plan to prosecute Mohammed in a Manhattan civilian court prevented the attorney general from carrying out what he thought was a “highly-detailed, formidable case” in a federal court just blocks from Ground Zero, which would have intensified the trial even more. Instead, Mohammed is still waiting in Guantanamo Bay after Holder shifted his case to military courts at the detention center in 2011, bowing to legislation that bars Guantanamo inmates from traveling to the U.S.


    He told Yahoo News this week in an interview, “I will say that if my recommendation had been followed, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and his confederates would be on death row right now. Right now.”

    media: 25755241


    2 :MONITORING THE PRESS:Among a number of controversies during his tenure involving journalists, Holder had to temper public anger in 2013 over the Justice Department’s seizure of Associated Press phone records resulting from an AP article in May 2012.

    Holder believed the article on a terrorist plot in Yemen threatened American security, and defended the Justice Department’s need to vet the AP correspondence.


    The president of The Associated Press claimed he kept the story from publication until government officials had confirmed there were no national security concerns that could have resulted from the article, and White House secretary Jay Carney insisted President Obama remained a faithful guardian of First Amendment rights.


    Holder’s argument came just years after dropping charges against former Justice Department lawyer Thomas Tamm, who leaked details of a Bush administration wiretapping program to the New York Times. Also in 2013, Holder denied attempting to prosecute journalists after reports revealed the Justice Department was monitoring Fox News reporter James Rosen following a story he published in 2009 on Iran. media: 25756073

    OPERATION FAST AND FURIOUS text:In a gunrunning sting gone awry, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives lost an estimated 1,400 weapons in Mexico -- including two guns that resurfaced at the murder scene of U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry in December 2010. The following May, Holder, who technically oversees ATF, testified before the House Judiciary Committee that he had only known about the sting, dubbed “Operation Fast & Furious,” for a few weeks. But after investigators uncovered memos on Fast & Furious sent to Holder in July 2010, congressional Republicans cried foul. According to the Justice Department, however, Holder never read the memos – and an IG report later “found no evidence that Department or ATF staff informed Holder about Operation Fast and Furious prior to 2011.”

    Holder repeatedly denied a DOJ cover-up, saying only, “This operation was flawed in concept, as well as in execution.” Bolstered by Obama’s assertion of executive privilege, which prevented future prosecution, Holder refused to turn over documents related to Fast and Furious, infuriating Congressional Republicans, who accused him of concealing administration failures. He was held in contempt of Congress in June 2012, marking the first time an attorney general has been held in criminal contempt. media: 25756744

    quicklist:4 title:*** MARRIAGE text:In 2011, the attorney general said he won’t defend Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) which rules that federal interpretation of “marriage” applies only to heterosexual couples. Last year, Holder told ABC News, “From my perspective, [*** marriage] is really the latest civil-rights issue.” So when six state attorneys general said they would not defend laws that ban *** marriage, Holder did not step in. Instead, Holder said they didn’t have to defend the laws if they believed they were unconstitutional.

    Holder’s handling of the matter did not sit well with former Justice Department officials, who believed the actions of Obama’s attorney general were anti-democratic. A U.S. attorney general, as head of the Justice Department, is responsible for enforcing federal laws. One critic of Holder, former Virginia Solicitor General William H. Hurd said, “These are important issues, but the job of an attorney general is not to act as a judge and decide them. His job is to act as an advocate and defend the laws enacted through the democratic process.” media: 25756272

    quicklist:5 title:DRUG CRIMES text:In 2013, Holder modified the Justice Department’s sentencing policy for low-level, drug-related crimes out of belief that they were discriminatory and destabilizing.

    “Let’s be honest: Some of the enforcement priorities that we have set have had a destabilizing effect on particular communities ... largely poor and of color, and [have been] applied inappropriately,” Holder said in a speech.

    In the past, mandatory minimum sentences were implemented to discourage drug use and reduce racially-biased sentences. Holder mandated the modification so that low-level, non-violent drug offenders with no ties to gangs or cartels would no longer be charged with offenses that “impose draconian, mandatory” sentences, and would instead be sentenced on an individual basis. Since the modification last year, the federal prison population dropped by 4,800 ... the first time the prison population declined since 1980. media: 25757773

    Fox News removes doctored images of George Floyd protests after being publicly corrected


    Are these rioters even rioting for George Floyd anymore? I mean it happened in Minnesota and yet we hear about the riots (officially declared a riot 22 times in Portland, almost half the days they have been "protesting"). So the radical alt-left's answer is to let the motha burn? Socialism and KKKommunism and Mao Tse Dong rhetoric combined with Alphabet soup loopy dee loop?   Funny how they want to erase history but are repeating history yet know nuting of history

    and what was the final outcome of KKKomunism and socialism throughout the world. Like NFAC now calling for a new country within a country like the Nation of Islam called for one in 1937. Chernobyl has land available for those who want to start a new country.

    Research shows wearing masks can significantly reduce risk of coronavirus transmission

    In New York, for instance, the daily new infection rate dropped by 3% per day after a policy requiring that people wear face masks or coverings in public took effect, the researchers found.  Overall, the researchers estimated that requirements related to face masks and coverings "significantly reduced the number of infections … by over 78,000 in Italy from April 6 to May 9 and over 66,000 in New York City from April 17 to May 9."



    Face masks may reduce COVID-19 spread by 85%, WHO-backed study suggests


    With face masks, the chance of infection or transmission was 3% with a mask compared with 17% without a mask, a reduction of more than 80%. And for eye protection, the chance of infection or transmission was 6% with protection and 16% without.


    Your Mask Cuts Own Risk by 65 Percent


    Scientific evidence is clear: Social distancing and wearing masks help prevent people from spreading COVID-19, and masks also protect those who wear them, two UC Davis Health experts said on UC Davis LIVE: COVID-19.

    A range of new research on face coverings shows that the risk of infection to the wearer is decreased by 65 percent, said Dean Blumberg, chief of pediatric infectious diseases at UC Davis Children’s Hospital.


    If everyone wears a mask, 58% of Covid-19 deaths could be prevented by fall, study says

    But that could all change if 95% of people now start wearing masks anytime they’re in public, according to the model. Universal mask usage could prevent nearly 45,500 projected Covid-19-related deaths by Nov. 1, or about a 58% reduction, Vos says.

    I got much more it you want to see them.😷


    Funny how the study to prove that masks did not prevent COVID was retracted and subsequently removed.



    Wonder why that is?


    You know what  could have prevented  deaths? Not sending positive COVID patients into Nursing homes.

    There I put it into a font size  you could understand.

  18. I have been holding something back in this discussion about those snowflake SJWs that I have not stated previously because I wanted this discussion to highlight the hypocrisy that is inherent in the wearing of mask. Like I said I forgot my mask when I went into the store and then once inside was confronted by a bunch of "woke" SJWs whom others have said were on a power trip.I agree with that assessment. 


    Now on to what I was holding back.


    So it has been stated in previous posts in this thread some would not wear a mask if they were alone, like mowing the grass or outside walking. What about in a car by yourself? I don't wear a mask when I am by myself in a car and I know a lot of others do not either. See this particular restaurant has a drive-thru window. And as I was walking into the restaurant you can see the window and people in their cars in line placing, waiting and getting their orders. As I noticed the people in the cars with the window down not one of them had a mask on. I know they were all intelligent enough to wear a mask. When they received their food none of them was told to wear a mask.


    So it was okay to go through the drive-thru, wait at the drive-thru window, have the same SJWs who yelled at me about wearing a mask hand the non-mask wearing patron their food. It was okay to go through the drive-thru not wearing a mask!


    Talk about irony. What just because they were in their car reaching through two windows that there is chance to get the virus? This is hypocrisy in the system. Their woke world only extended to what they have been told. There was no use of critical thinking that if they were required to serve food inside the patron needed a  mask to if they were required to serve food through a drive -thru window the patron would also need a mask. And there is the rub in the ointment.

    I agree. If you are outside by yourself, taking a walk, cutting your grass no need whatsoever for a mask. But when you go into public buildings with other people mask up. 

    LA sheriff will fine you $300 if you're not wearing a mask in public this includes cutting your grass or taking a walk.

    Miami to fine people up to $500 if they don't wear masks this includes anyplace outside your front door.

    Massachusetts communities threaten fines of up to $1,000 for not wearing coronavirus masks outside


    So outside, walking your dog, walking on the beach, mowing your lawn, etc. now requires you to wear a mask no matter if no one else is around.


    A situation you could be fined for is that you are mowing your lawn and no one in the neighborhood is around. Along comes a city worker, by themself,  in their local government pickup truck with all the windows rolled up the air conditioner running and is in a recirculating mode and sees you mowing the grass without a mask. Now you are sent a fine for not wearing a mask. This is not conspiracy it is reality, yesterday.


    I can find more like it. 


    Even 1% of something fearful to you breeds 100% fear in you.

    I walked into a Panda Express without a mask on. Forgot it in my car. The young people behind the counter said I had to wear a mask. So I walked out to my car, put the mask on over my chin and walked back inside. They started yelling at me. I told them I was "wearing" my mask. Then they said I need to wear it over my nose and mouth. So I scrunched it up and put it on the bridge of my nose. They said nooo! I said it was over my mouth and nose, what is the problem?. I had enough when someone said I was going to give their grandmother the COVID. I asked if she was here and he said no. Then I asked him how the hell could I possibly give it to her. He shrugged his shoulders and left to go to  a better chinese restaurant that actually cooked traditional American based chinese food. I normally don't go to Panda Express. And continue to not go there anymore. As with all the stores that require me to wear a mask. If they

    require me to wear a mask then they should give me one if I forget to wear and since they don't eff them. I know stores that want customers.

    You stated you put in on your chin.   You were wrong,  got called out by kids and got upset. End of story.  I'm no fan of the youth of today either.  But you could have handled it better but didn"t.

    That being said, you may want to look up the definition of awsome. You know where I'm heading with this.

    Some reflection of your actions may be needed. I find people who know they were wrong and get called out usually  resort to insulting others peoples ability, to read, comprehend or whatever your are about to say next.  





    Like I said you need reading comprehension lessons and work on reading retention. I didn't answer your question  because I answered it already in the original post. So pluh-lease get off your pedestal and join the rest of the world. I handled it perfectly fine. 


    You said I was awesome. I said thank you. Or do you not remember typing that?


    You seem to be having problems reading and retaining information, do you need to go see a doctor or maybe a psychiatrist?


    I reflected on my actions quite well. Had they been nicer it could have gone a different way. So just stop before you further embarrass yourself. You have already been caught trying to make up something. You have been caught saying I was awesome then when I thank you for it try to tell me you never said it (or do I need to show the exact post?). That is just embarrassing. Just stop right now.  What are you going to make up next? 


    I also said "I forgot my mask" or do you not read that too?
