    Other side of the ledger:

    Is the country better off than it was 4 years ago?

    -Country is most divided since the Civil War
    -Free Speech threatened
    -Open persecution of conservatives and conservative points of view
    -Country on the verge of swinging permanently left
    -Executive/Legislative branches in Democratic hands forever
    -$30 trillion debt and increasing
    -Covid deaths > 430,000
    -Vaccine distribution and administration remains a challenge
    -Open season on the White Male while the WOKE left is untouchable
    -11 million illegals about to be given 8 year plan to citizenship with largely open borders in the future
    -US returning to Iran nuke deal
    -US back in the Paris Agreement with both feet while China and India go unchecked
    -Trump leaves White House with the lowest approval rate in history (41%)

    China and Russia dancing on the ceiling.

    This is pretty much dead-onwith one exception. Those 11 million "illegals" do not want to be citizens, at least not U.S. Citizens. They just want to live and work here, without having to pay the price. Income Tax, and Social Security related expenses. Why become a citizen, and give up at least a fourth of your paycheck? They did not come here to be U.S. Citizens.

    None of this is Trumps fault.....the dems and the forces of evil rigged the election.....Trump wasn't given an opportunity to present evidence......it is acknowledged by all that the states broke their election law and violated their constitution.......the country was divided before trump by the black prick.......his approval rating among republicans is very high, over 80 %......he will be like MacArthur and the Phillipeans...........

    there is no other side of the ledger.....every american should kiss his ass for the vaccine.......and you know it.

    777-

    As Phil Leotardo famously said...a couple 'o three things:

    1) I should have included "Race relations have never been worse."
    2) Obama, unlike Trump, left the country better than he inherited it from Bush. Referring to him as a "black prick" shows that you can't judge him fairly.
    3) The stock market performed great under Trump as it has for 5 of the last 6 Presidents

    Saying that "none of this is Trump's fault" is ridiculous. You think that he shall return in 2024. America fired him by 7 million votes but you refuse to accept that his mouth, arrogance and Covid did him in. The voters disagree.

    Dow at end of term for last 6 Presidents and % increase:

    This is simply not a "fair" comparison. You are contradicting Chef-boy-are-Dee's Bullshit, with facts. :confused: If we want "facts" we'll read the Gateway Pundit. :D

    were in a bad place and i really dont see that changing. Both the left and right
    have dug in and much of what each believes is not true.....but it really does not
    matter if something is true as long as you believe it is.

    I think the petty insults and retribution Trump took out on those that would not bow and
    kiss his ring cost us the election, cost us the senate seats and costs us an easy road to
    retaking the house. It has made it much much harder for people to say they are
    republicans.

    I think the democratic party is much worse than Trump, i think they acted as bad or worse
    than he did.....but we cant control them, never will be able to, so we have to control the mistakes
    we make.....Trumps unforced errors will some day make for a good book, now it just hurts.

    If Trump wants to remain in the picture, republicans will not hold the house or senate again
    in my lifetime.

    The current social climate would be the same or worse no matter what Republican had held office the last 4 years.
    It took a massive conspiracy and hundreds of millions of dollars to usurper our Democracy but the Chinese did it using queers, pedophile's, communists and useful idiots.
    Multiple constitutional laws were broken in multiple states to steal over 450000 votes to swing elections in several states. in the meantime. The margin of victory in the senate is razor thin. 50/50 The house barely has a Majority and lost several seats. There are many more republican governor's as well as State house and Senate seats were turned RED. This is what the election shows the true sentiment of voters was, and is.
    As for the Social and News conglomerates they have all broken anti trust laws. Civil suites with trial by jury will be the only solution, since Judges have lost their political neutrality at all levels.

    On January 21st the impeachment of President Biden will be filed for crimes that have been proven and he has admitted to.

    This so called insurrection was planned weeks before President Trump invited Americans to their capital to voice their frustration with all the criminal activity of the left. Problen is our FBI is corrupt.
    The biggest mistake President Trump made was not cleaning house in his agencies in year 1.

    It’s called thin skin-itis. He let so much garbage bother him. Petty fights with nobodies that ended up being cringeworthy with name calling and insults. Petty arguments with media personalities. Acosta, Cooper, Wallace, etc.

    Had he just focused on the job and shit canned the political swamp and media garbage...he wins going away.

    His mouth did him in...not policy.

    Still blaming President Trump.
    Try to get this.
    Bush, McCain, Romney, then Trump… and the Next GOP Leader will be Even More Demonized
    [​IMG]


    The current uproar regarding the riots at the U.S. Capitol building on January 6th, and the effect comments by President Donald Trump may have had on that unrest, is just the latest focal point in an almost-five-year effort by the Left to denigrate and diabolize the president. While many conservatives take issue with some of Trump’s rhetoric that preceded the aggression, and may in fact consider much of it irresponsible, most of us recognize that those who engaged in the violence in Washington D.C. are ultimately responsible for their actions. Individual responsibility is a fundamental tenet of conservatism. Meanwhile Democrats, their media, and other leftists are doing everything they can to associate not only President Trump, but everyone who supported and voted for him, with the carnage at the Capitol. As Trump has pointed out repeatedly over the last several years, “They’re not after me, they’re after you.”






    Not only is the president’s assessment accurate, we should expect the Left to continue with that approach when another Republican backfills Trump as the party’s leader. Whoever that brave man or woman may be, they will be thoroughly and relentlessly vilified as the Left attempts to destroy their actual target: anyone who disagrees with them. The Left’s vitriol for Republicans in general, and conservatives in particular, won’t end when Donald Trump’s influence recedes; quite the contrary. The emergence of that wrath may take time to gel, and perhaps even lessen temporarily as that void is filled. But it will return with a vengeance, and we should expect that hatred to intensify. Why? Because they will assess, somewhat accurately, that their efforts regarding Trump were successful. They will deem – if it worked with Trump, let’s do it again.






    We could go back and examine the treatment of Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush for comparisons, but we only need to consider events in this century to illustrate the tactics of our friends on the other side of the aisle. In reality, President Trump is just the villain-du-jour, having filled the shoes of other recent GOP leaders. They pretend now that their disagreements with folks like George W. Bush, John McCain, and Mitt Romney were those of friendly rivals, and count on conservatives to have amnesia. They would have us think that they were civil and respectful in their treatment of those men, but they weren’t. They were vicious then as well, the only difference with Trump is that he didn’t just sit back and take it like Bush, McCain and Romney; Trump counter-punched, and did so effectively for the most part.






    It’s easy to forget now, twelve years after his departure from office, but President George W. Bush was despised and mistreated by the Left in a similar way to that of President Trump. Bush was constantly depicted as an idiot, as they chose to ignore his Ivy League education, just like Trump. Bush was labeled a racist while they simultaneously dismissed critical achievements with minorities (such as saving millions of lives from AIDS in Africa), just like Trump. We got a familiar taste of their Bush-hatred when Ellen DeGeneres was spotted fraternizing with the former president at a football game in 2019, and the Left lost their collective minds at Ellen’s astonishingly bad judgment, but that hatred never got back to the early-2000s level. It couldn’t… they were too busy hating on President Trump.






    As Bush went into retirement and passed the torch, John McCain was next in line to be brutally attacked. Presently, they would have us believe they were downright smitten with John McCain back then. After McCain’s death in August 2018, he was praised by the Left as being considerate, reasonable, and open to compromise. But we must not forget reality: John McCain was absolutely pummeled when running as the Republican presidential nominee in 2008. Then-candidate Barack Obama, the same man the Left now depicts as being the epitome of civility, theorized on the campaign trail McCain was in fact a disgusting racist who held the belief that Obama “doesn’t look like all those other presidents on the dollar bills.” Like Bush and Trump, McCain was also unintelligent, they told us, due primarily to being so decrepit, even though McCain at the time was several years younger than President-Elect Joe Biden is now. They were relentless in their attacks on John McCain, not to mention his running mate Sarah Palin, and they dusted off the same playbook for Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign.






    Newly-arriving visitors from outer space might conclude Democrats were always as besotted with Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT), the 2012 GOP presidential nominee, as they appear to be currently, but they would be wrong. Romney was actually accused of being a murderer during his presidential run by a pro-Obama PAC. He was also implied to be a misogynist due to his stance on “women’s health,” as well as being unfoundedly called a tax-cheat on the Senate floor by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV). And of course, no Republican in the 21st-century can run for any office without being accused of racism, as then Vice-President Joe Biden famously promised a gathering of mostly African-Americans, “Mitt Romney’s gonna put y’all back in chains!”






    It doesn’t matter who the person is, any Republican leader will be relentlessly battered by Democrats and other leftists with willing assistance from the mainstream media (aka the Communication Department of the Democratic Party). President Trump wasn’t the first to suffer such abuse, and he certainly won’t be the last. One aspect of future assaults which remains unclear is whether or not the Left can ratchet up their smears. Once you’ve unloaded on Republicans with terms such as racist, misogynist, and xenophobe, is it even possible to up the ante?






    So, what happens next? Donald Trump will be 78 during the next election cycle, and has in fact suffered what some would argue is irreversible political damage this month, much of it self-inflicted. Assuming Trump moves on, who will the Left set their sights on next? Some consider former South Carolina Governor and U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley to be a Republican front-runner, and if nominated in 2024 would be only the second woman and racial minority to ever have top billing on a major party ticket. Would that dampen the Left’s enthusiasm in their battering of Haley, or even slow them down? Hell, no. Well-qualified, racial minority senators such as Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Marco Rubio (R-FL) might have a chance as well, and we’ve already seen the lengths to which the Left will go in disparaging the two of them. Indeed, the identity of President Trump’s successor is irrelevant, as are the actual facts that might pertain to that individual. The Republicans could bring on the second coming of Abraham Lincoln himself, and Democrats would portray him as being an ignorant redneck with an inferior education; and a racist, of course. In only a few short years, we’ll hear leftist pundits lamenting for the good ole’ days of civility like we had with President Trump, as they work away at their cartoonish portrayal of that next brave soul to step forward and lead the Republican Party.

    You blame President Trump for what the Media has accomplished. If I am wrong please explain what President Trump did.
    The Fed borrowed Trillions of dollars from China. Bought US Bonds and propped up the economy.
    That is what was done which Omobba had zero part in.
    Then point out what he did to cause whatever it is you are talking about.
    You believing this was a fair honest election is fucking scary.

    Cops outnumber protestors at the nation’s capitol in advance of the inauguration on Wednesday. There is also allegedly a big show of force at many of the state’s capitols.

    State capitols across the United States have been “reinforced” against a possible wave of pro-Trump armed protests after the FBI warned of “armed groups” preparing to descend on them. However, it’s become obvious that the situation on the ground tells a different story.
    The massive number of military personnel and their presence are ominous and we are obviously not being told the entire truth. There’s no need to outnumber the protestors to this extent unless there’s something else going on and it’s the cover story. Are people actually still buying the official narrative this time?


    -UPDATED- Questions About The Chaos At The Capitol That Desperately Need To Be Answered

    The Capitol Hill riot, which saw an unruly group of pro-Trump protesters run amuck in the U.S. Capitol on January 6th, has been the current springboard talking point to bring in a level of military never seen before. Politicians (liars in suits aka, the ruling class) are warning of an undercurrent of right-wing “extremism” and “domestic terrorism across the country. Journalists and liberal pundits continue to openly talk of the need to “cleanse” the nation of “Trumpism,” using rhetoric not seen since the days of WWII.


    TRENDING: ABC News Calls for ‘Cleansing’ of Trump Supporters in Terrifying Piece
    Joe Biden’s inauguration on Wednesday will take place in a locked-down Washington, DC, behind unprecedented security, including 20,000 National Guardsmen. Some reports say there’s more military than that, however.

    If this was simply to “arrest the deep state,” there wouldn’t be the need for this mass of troops. So what’s really going on? All I have, honestly, are speculations. There’s no evidence to back up anything yet, but my instincts say this is a cover story for something else much bigger and we all need to be prepared. Whatever is going on is preplanned. They brought in the military early enough that this should be obvious to people.

    I would spend the day grabbing some “lead” if you can find any and maybe a few extra pounds of dried beans, and a case of water just in case. Make any last-minute preparations and know that you did your best to ensure your family will be safe. Don’t succumb to fear, as we know these elitists and the ruling class feed off of the terrified masses. Continue to do the right thing to others, help people if you can, be kind (many may need this in the coming weeks), and most of all, stay away from ALL of the state capitols!

    Keep your eyes and ears open. Be alert and aware and stay prepared. Gray-man skills could come in handy right now too.

    Couple of things, i believe everything i said about Trump, while he worked very hard
    on policies that i think are important....which is what a business man would do, he failed
    miserably as a leader. Trump actually believed he could do or say anything he wanted because
    the economy was good and get away with it.....well he was wrong

    Optics.......tell you Trump is just what he appears to be a complete jerk.....
    optics..........You saw Biden cry about the 400,000 that died of covid, now in truth as many or
    more would have died had he been president.......but right now today people see
    he seems to care and they understand Trump did not care at all, all covid did was
    screw up the economy and hurt his re-election and legacy...

    Trump is gone..i hope. He had the chance to be a great President, but being Trump was more
    important.

    Now 777 and Setting and my brother can blame the dems and the press and the republicans that
    some think are not republican enough and i can blame Trump for making it easy for them by allowing
    them to cover their hatred for all of us by indicating it was only for Trump



    I feel sorry for Trump, i feel truly sorry for his wife, in my mind she has been the picture of grace
    and has been hurt hurt by every stupid thing he has said and done. I feel sorry for us, because now
    if your a dem or a rep, the ends justify the means no matter what.

    When the country can vett the national guard because enough of them did not vote for Biden , it is over.

    You often make it tough to figure out whether you are a ball-breaking comedian or a miserable, grumpy old man. I guess that it's not important for us to know the true 777, it's only important for you to know.

    He wanted to run everything as he ran his business. I say what goes. Stay and agree or disagree and leave.

    You can do that behind corporate closed doors where you unleash a business tirade like no other. Trump was known to do that. His Trump Taj Mahal opening speech to employees was notorious for uttering “you muther fucking cocksuckers better earn”.

    He just didn’t understand that he had to “adjust” his ways to be effective with people he couldn’t fire....81 million voters.
