Joe Biden: Voters Don’t Deserve to Know Whom I’d Appoint to Supreme Court
Joe Biden told a Milwaukee television station on Monday that voters do not deserve to know whom he would appoint to the Supreme Court.
Pressed on if the American people should know who he'll appoint: "No they don't, but they will if I'm elected. They'll have plenty of time." pic.twitter.com/RZfvEouPvY
And then when asked if he would pack the Supreme Court, this was his reply: Biden to @WBAY declines to answer q on adding seats to SCOTUS if GOP replaces RBG
"It’s a legitimate question, but let me tell you why I’m not going answer...it will shift the focus."
Trump launches fresh attack on McCain after widow endorses Biden
US President Donald Trump on Wednesday launched a fresh mocking attack on John McCain, the Republican senator who died in 2018, after McCain's widow threw her support behind Joe Biden in the election.
In a particularly aggressive tweet the Republican leader once again criticized John McCain who was one of the few in the Republican party to openly castigate him.
"I hardly know Cindy McCain other than having put her on a Committee at her husband's request," he tweeted.
"Joe Biden was John McCain's lapdog," he said of the Democratic challenger he will face as he seeks a second four-year term on November 3.
Denouncing "bad decisions on endless wars," Trump stated that he was "Never a fan of John."
"Cindy can have Sleepy Joe!" concluded the president.
Cindy McCain's support for Biden, announced Tuesday, is a setback for Trump, who faces an uphill challenge in the election and boasts of having the entire Republican party behind him.
The widow of the former senator tweeted "we are Republicans, yes, but Americans foremost. There's only one candidate in this race who stands up for our values as a nation, and that is @JoeBiden."
Real Class act this Trump, Attack a dead man who can't defend himself. Of course this is the same Trump who called KIA Americans Suckers and Losers for fighting for American Freedom.
The more I see of Biden, the more I have to think this is pathetic.
The Democrats really have to be soul less to keep parading a man before the public who is not totally there mentally. Really, he isn't and doesn't know it. His wife is also at fault and lets them get away with this. She is pathetic, or is expecting a really big payout for sacrificing her husband to the justifiable ridicule he is getting. And it isn't because of his policies. He doesn't know what they are. He has or someone has in his behalf, sold him to the devil that is the Socialist/Democrat Party of today, about to become the Communist party of tomorrow under a President Harris. A woman that almost no one liked in the primaries. And almost no one will like if she actually becomes President.
So, Liberals, can you tell me why you will vote for this senile old man without mentioning President Trump?
Do you really think he would still be President after January 2021?
What is it that you like about Harris without mentioning President Trump?
What is it that you think Harris will do to America that is actually good?
Do you really trust a President Harris with the future of your grand children under a communist dictator and in a Communist state?
How Trump utilizes his rallies.
Instead of Trump using his campaign events to appeal to new voters, he rants like an 8 year old that Biden has gotten plastic surgery and that’s why he wears a mask. His behavior at these rallies just continue to remind voters he is a pathetic human being and continues to show how Trump classified that these people who attend these rallies really are (DISGUSTING PEOPLE)
These rallies are nothing but a comedy show and a long lists of pathetic lies. It’s funny a man who cakes himself with a bronzer make up each day attacks somebody else’s appearance when he also wears a girdle to hide his fat flap. Because he is a fat slob.
Joe Biden hides his face with a mask because he got plastic surgery.😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂
If and when they get it going do illegals get it before AMERICANS.
Just curious on thoughts.
“lowlife thieving reprobates.”
A growing number of musicians have ripped President Donald Trump, the Trump campaign, his supporters and other Republican candidates for helping themselves to songs for political purposes without permission from the artists, who often strongly oppose what the politicians stand for. Neil Young (who recently sued the Trump campaign), Adele, Rihanna, the Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, R.E.M., Elton John, Queen, Tom Petty and Prince’s estate are among those who have complained.
Earlier this week, Dee Snider of Twisted Sister exploded after a small group of people stormed a Florida Target store, playing “We’re Not Gonna Take It” as they called for customers to take off their face masks. Snider tweeted that the group did not have permission to use the Twisted Sister song to promote a “moronic cause” and called the protesters “selfish assholes.”
Monty Python comedian Eric Idle blasted the National Republican Congressional Committee for swiping a song from the British troupe and threatened to sue the “lowlife thieving reprobates.”
Of all melodies, the NRCC helped itself to “The Lumberjack Song,” about a cross-dressing woodsman, for an attack ad in Iowa against Democratic incumbent Rep. Cindy Axne. She’s running comfortably against Republican challenger David Young, whom she unseated in the last election.
The National Republican Congressional Committee has stolen the Lumberjack Song for an ad against Cindy Axne in Iowa. While we sue these low life thieving reprobates lets VOTE for Cindy to piss them off. Are all Republicans now lawless? Whatever happened to America?
Do we really know what we are fighting for?
Alexander Hamilton said, "A nation which can prefer disgrace to danger, is prepared for a master and deserves one."
Do you want a master? Do we need a master? Does America need a master?
Ask a Democrat and although they would outwardly say "No", they demonstrate "Yes".
How do they do that? Well I would say, the elite of the Democrat Party, demands that the people, do as they say not as they do. Nancy Pelosi proved that at a hair dresser's appointment. In 1964 Ronald Reagan speaking for Barry Goldwater, demonstrated the fact that the Democrat party, a once honorable political party, has turned to the philosophy of Carol Marx, and the principles of Stalin and Lenin. This has been coming for a long time.
Here is a question to demonstrate my point: Would you rather someone else tell you what equality is, or would you rather have the freedom to be equal?
Exploring my question, I have found that the first part of the question, is a master/slave relationship, "I tell you therefore it is", where as the latter part of the question, places the definition on the person. This definition has to be agreed on by the individual, otherwise the individual does exercise it.
Banning anything, with the exception of bans against people for the sake of sex, color, creed, or culture, is wrong and will always end up in a fight of sorts. But to nominate a person to dictate how we think therefore live, is an act of a totalitarian. And Hitler, Mussolini, Lenin and Stalin, as well as Saddam Hussein were all totalitarians.
Caesar Augustus, and Julius Caesar were also totalitarians. When a small group of people, feel they know better than the people, then the lust for power becomes somewhat dangerous and criminal. There is hope though.
Once a people have experienced freedom, there is no turning back. To the totalitarian, freedom and hope, are a disease. A disease that must be stopped. If we cripple the people by taking away their religion, then they have to believe in us. Then we disrupt the family unit, either with divorce or abortion or both. Without religion why should a man and wife stay together? Then those who still hope, we prevent them from congregating. Then we take their weapons away from them so they can't defend themselves. If they get out of line then we can stop them by making up whatever slander we can dream up with until no one believes the story and it becomes circumstantial at best. For the story will drowned out the truth.
This is what we have become in today's society. We are going to be asked to make a choice-Trump or Biden. Do we give the power to a person who lets us choose, like Trump. Or do we give it to Biden, a person who will mandate how we live?
I lived through Carter, Clinton, and Obama, and each of them, either inadvertently or deliberately told the American people how to live. Whereas, Reagan and Trump gave that decision to the people. So when you hear, "Trump is not leading" has it ever dawned upon you that Trump like Reagan is giving you the choice. Decide for yourself.
Look at the mask issue. Trump wants to leave the decision up to the individual. That's freedom. Biden says he will mandate that all must wear a mask. Facts are facts, and facts can be disputed and put the fire. But this fact always remains the same: If a person is mandated, many will not follow that mandate. But if you want to wear a mask, many will.
So the Democrats claim, "Trump is not leading" because he allows the individual to make up their own minds.
Why can't the individual make up their own mind? Oh yea, because we must be told how to make up our own minds? Is that really freedom? Freedom is when the individual chooses, so who has the right to choose?
If we reverse Roe vs Wade, does that mean abortions will not happen? Or does that mean the people not the government will make that choice?
The election of 2020 is coming upon us, which do you choose?
Democrat Progressives dead are well, happy & voting for Biden/Harris
Election Watchdog Finds 350,000 Dead Registrants on Voter Rolls In 42 States.
Joe Schoffstall - Washington Free Beacon, September 22, 2020
An election watchdog has found that there may be as many as 350,000 dead individuals on voter rolls across 42 states.
The Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF), an Indiana-based election integrity group, conducted a nationwide study to identify the hundreds of thousands of deceased individuals on voter rolls. During its analysis, the group also found that nearly 40,000 likely duplicate registrants "appear to have cast second votes in 2018 from the same address."
Just five states—New York, Texas, Michigan, Florida, and California—accounted for 51 percent of the total number of deceased individuals on voter rolls, according to the group. PILF further found that nearly 15,000 registrants were credited with voting after death in the 2016 and 2018 elections.
"Our voter rolls have not, and will not be ready for a mail-focused election this November," said Logan Churchwell, communications director for PILF. "State court decisions in swing states allowing for relaxed deadlines, signature verification, and harvesting now sit on a foundation of bad voter data."
"In Pennsylvania, your mis-delivered ballot to the hands of a bad actor will now have extra time to get turned in and not face the traditional standards for signature verification," Churchwell said. "The only way to absolutely avoid this nightmare is to vote in person."
The analysis comes as states across the country prepare to handle a surge of mail-in voting for the November elections. Numerous problems plagued mail-in voting during the primary elections this year. Nevada's largest county sent out more than 200,000 mail-in primary ballots to the wrong addresses, while reports also indicated that 84,000 mail-in presidential primary ballots cast in New York City were disqualified.
The push for mail-in voting has led to a massive influx of cash from wealthy donors. More than $100 million has been poured into efforts both supporting and opposing the practice.
A network of liberal groups, including George Soros's Open Society Foundations and the Ford Foundation, has donated more than $50 million in support of mail-in voting. These efforts have primarily been geared toward battleground states including Michigan, North Carolina, Florida, Georgia, and Arizona, NBC News previously reported.

Nevada Sent More Than 200K Mail-In Primary Ballots to Wrong Addresses
This has been obvious for too long, but anyone who still supports or votes for Trump is an idiot and un-American
Trump has proven my case for nearly 4 years; if you can't see that yet, you are a racist, stupid, insane, anti-American, pro-Putin, or just a totally consumed hater of law, justice, decency, and democratic values. And I will not apologize or waiver from that nearly kind assessment. I am daily astounded beyond the state of reason that so many people are so powerfully dumb or viciously blind. History in a decade will tell us that I am right, on the side of the light, and the rest of you are pathetic and disgraceful fools lounging in, luxuriating in, Darkness.
The anti-love of neighbor or kindness in his no mask support is just an example, not even exemplary of the president's lack of character or humanity; a sideshow of his indecency...except for 200,000 dead. Open and sustained attacks to suppress the vote and undermine 2 solid pillars of our democracy: free elections and a free press, both vital to the life of our Republic. And that barely scratches the surface of his corruption. The fact that anyone could accept this gross and destructive behavior for our form of government is startling. In less than five years from now, you will be seen as tragic jerks and criminals. Wait until the Right makes this nation burn and melt to rethink your position.
You guys make me puke.
This is sure to frost the right wing cult...
such a gorgeous evening last night, i pulled this out of past email simply because i felt like it..
In 2016 Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia unexpectedly passed away in February. President Obama fulfilled his constitutional duty by nominating a qualified replacement. Mitch McConnell refused to fulfill his constitutional duty to give Merrick Garland a fair hearing and a vote. Instead McConnell said it was an election year and we should let the people decide. Never mind that President Obama was elected twice by a majority of the voters as opposed to Trump who was elected by a minority. Never mind that the 2016 US Senate was elected by "the people" as well. The Republicans had a majority and were free to vote no on Garland. They simply lacked the courage to do their jobs.
McConnell had no problem shelving the Garland nomination for an entire year. By the time Neil Gorsuch was confirmed, the Supreme Court was short one member for 14 months. And please don't bring up the "Biden Rule". Pulling a hypothetical from a politician's speech is not a rule.
Now in 2020 RBG passed away. Not only is it an election year, people are actually voting. The Republicans have reversed the policy they imposed in 2016 of "letting the people decide" and not voting on a Supreme Court nomination in an election year. This is just a simple power grab. Is it legal? Yes. Is it moral? A man is only as good as his word. What does that make McConnell and his henchmen?
