Wow, 25,000 people showed up at the Biden Rally in the Bronx..... ERR, sorry I meant to say 25,000 people showed up at the TRUMP rally in the Bronx.

Guilty on all counts

Here’s the great irony IMO. Biden biggest problem right now is a $300+ tab when getting a modest amount of groceries. People are getting a weekly reminder of how bad inflation has been, and it does not have to continue to go up to still be painful. The ironic part, as I have said now for years, is that a shortage of immigrant labor in this country is the main cause of this inflation, and until labor availability returns to normal, we will suffer. Neither party wants to address it. Trump is on the more radical side of keeping legal immigration down, so if elected, he ain’t fixing it. The chamber of commerce has no voice in either party and we will pay for that for a very long time.

These aren't "confidential" sources.  

According to the reporter "so and so said this about another so and so".

Let me explain it to the brain dead out there who think that if they claim these people are confidential sources, the only idiots out there who buy that bullshit are the leftists who don't have 2 brain cells to rub together. 

They never name names any longer because most of the time they are just making things up, creating stories that fit their hit pieces.

Try another line of bullshit and maybe James Lacey or Jim Brown will support it.   tongue


Very few people would doubt Andrew Ross Sorkin. He may lean left, but he has a very good reputation as a reporter. This comment is really for any objective person reading it, not you, Richard.

I’m pretty sure Satan reports to Trump.

And another video of Biden just unaware as usual, of where he is at. Barack Obama has to grab him by the hand, then guide him off the stage.

If you have morphed over to the double standard in the press treatment of candidates, I would agree.   The NYT, Washington Post, CNN and so on generally give Biden a pass and always attack Trump.   Fox News, WND, The New York Post and so on give Trump a pass and attack Biden.   Ho Hum.   Yes this is hypocrisy, but it is known and should be recognized by anyone who consumes political news.  Peggy Noonan has a good editorial today (linked on Real Clear) about the failure of modern journalism, and she makes her point without needing to call out the left or the right, since both are culpable.

So now, I am waiting for an example of my own alleged liberal hypocrisy and/or something specific about this double standard.  Maybe you can start by pointing out (by number maybe?) the post where you lay out such an airtight case for a leftist double standard.
Jim,

Rich was talking to somebody about boats. electric boats. And his connection to bioengineering, you know Hitachi Medical, and if the boat sinks and there’s a shark, would you get electrocuted…nobody thought to ask that…and he said there were a lot of shark attacks lately, but only because they misunderstand….

Trump's VP Picks Reportedly Reduced To Two...

Let's consider both, shall we? 

First, both have utterly dumped on Trump during the times in their lives when they were rational human beings. 

Here's Doug stating he wouldn't do business with Donald Trump:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VRJUIJnHhcI

JD, for his part, and not to be outdone, had this to say about him:   "Vance once referred to Trump as "America's Hitler"

https://www.businessinsider.com/trump-acknowledged-jd-vances-past-disparaging-comments-ohio-rally-2022-4

Now, both are Trump sycophants:

JD, for example is on a mission to stop any and all funding for Ukraine, thus getting an early start in allowing the Trump team's plan to expedite Putin's conquest of eastern Europe. (I'm sure RICH DAVIS, is thrilled with that). 

https://thehill.com/opinion/international/4597442-j-d-vance-is-dead-wrong-about-ukraine-aid/

Doug, has a different take on matters. He's on a mission to inform the world that "Biden is a dictator":

https://www.politico.com/news/2024/06/23/burgum-cnn-biden-dictatorship-00164585

To that end, Doug (and JD) have vowed to block any Biden NOMINEES for anything because, obviously, NOMINATIONS only come from a dictator, right?
Ya gotta love that logic...

We'll just have to wait and see who the eventual pick is, but, at the moment, it's reportedly one of these clowns...

WTF, how is it that Richard is not on this list???
