I have one comment: I don’t think that “Joe Biden” (in Jim Kunstler language) only “supported the war in Ukraine and vilified Russia as our enemy”, “Joe Biden” did a lot more to poke the bear and instigate and fire up the war. But that’s just me. You can be the judge of that too.

Also just me: when Trump left and Biden came, we were at peace. Look at us now.

    Also just me: when Trump left and Biden came, we were at peace. Look at us now.

    Interesting comment for a person that lives in Greece… 😕


    It’s just me. Everybody has bad memories. I don’t remember the past the same way. It doesn’t matter.

    Veracious Poet

    Question: What effect did opinions of Trump outside of America (non-voters) have regarding the theft of the 2020 “elections”, along with the overwhelming International support of the Biden’s ascension to power?

    Has anyone given consideration to the *fact* that the whole Russia! Russia! hoax/lie was equally supported, if not more so, by Euro forces?

    If the *answer* affirms & condemns Int’l. meddling in American affairs (Global by reach), does anyone *really* think/believe that the International/Euro Collective EG0ic Madness, which aligned/conspired to eject a “good & somewhat decent” man from the White House, is actually capable of introspective reflection, humble enough to admit mistake(s) & withdraw support from the *organized criminality* presently holding “humanity” hostage?

    Well, do ya punk?


    They were/are both terrible. Puppets both of them. Eisenhower had it figured out and said as much. Kennedy was naive. Ford was semi-OK. I won’t comment on the ones I knew personally.

    My list of lies is longer than yours.

    Strange indeed the memories that are unexpectedly revived on this forum. The opening salvo so well presented by TAE Summary reminded me that back in the day ( and I mean WAY back in the day) small boys actually did sometimes have peeing competitions, to see who could stream the farthest. It was not so much about who won the contest, and more about the sheer joy of pissing for distance.



    “I won’t comment on the ones I knew personally.”

    Which ones?

    Golf? Lunches? Trap shooting? …seconds? minutes? hours? Days? Months? Years?

    Don’t say anything that would endanger your life.


    That is why I won’t comment.


    Yawn. Voting is bullshit, when you vote you are selecting their approved candidate, and yes, Trump was an approved candidate. Just compare Trump’s source of funds with the DNC source of funds, Ukraine FTX excepted. Trump had only just arrived, done nothing, and the DNC attacked with the help of the deep state, the owners of the DNC and Trump. All theatre, all designed to divide the USA voters between I-love-Trump voters and I-love-Hillary voters, both groups were a bunch of sad ass kissers afraid of using their own brains, lest their pensions take a hit and they cannot afford cashmere in their retirement. But, very useful when it came to selling vaccines, the I-love-Hillary bunch loved the vaccines, that is the advantage of a divided population, you can sell them everything if it is sold as being against the wishes of the other side.

    Voting does not mean democracy in the Greek tradition, the original meaning, it means that you get to choose the front man. The front man is a one-way sewer, passing the shit from the owners to the plebs. Any pleb that thinks that voting changes anything ought to look at the track record of democracy, the comparison between the opinions of the people and the votes of the “representatives”. You only vote if you are dumb, it really makes no difference and one day people will work that out. Want proof, just ask Liz Truss.

    Go vote if you wish to. The lists above show you the propaganda, this is not what people think, this is what the MSM want people to think. Trump divided the people, but now the people are gradually reuniting against the corrupt government. I have met Democrats who want to see the end of the USA sooner rather than later.

    Mister Roboto

    Given the choice, I would much rather have Trump, despite the fact that I think that as president, he demonstrated himself to be a narcissistic blowhard-dufus who was in over his head.


    In 2o2o we got build back worst and inflation. That hurts everyone except the 1%.
