In my Red state there's something interesting and encouraging this year compared to 2016

During the 2016 campaign my neighborhood was full of Trump signs. That entire year, every day on my walk I would feel like such a loner. There was one and only one house that bravely displayed a Hillary for President sign during my daily 5 mile walk. I took a couple of different routes for variety but each time it was all the same as far as Trump signs go.

This year I have seen ONE Trump sign. I suppose that could change as the election gets closer but all of 2016 there were those signs everywhere. Either the voters are ashamed to say they align with Trump or (what I keep hoping) they're changing their minds and just don't want anyone to know they're voting Biden.

Bolton book claims Trump committed other 'Ukraine-like transgressions'- Sure, Now he tells us

What is this? Bolton could have said something a long time ago. Instead, he waits until his book release and we have to buy the book to find out what other Trump transgressions have been committed ?

Am I reading this wrong? Because it sure looks like he wasn't willing to say a word to save this Democratic Republic from the scourge of Trump until he could make a profit from it and after it's too late. Am I missing something?

"New York publishers Simon & Schuster boasted: “This is the book Donald Trump doesn’t want you to read.”"

You know what, Simon & Schuster? I don't live my life based on what Donald Drumpf does or doesn't want me to do and I don't give a fuck anymore about what Bolton has to say.

Trump says invoke the 1807 Insurrection Act, which permits a president to deploy military inside

"As we speak, I am dispatching thousands and thousands of heavily armed soldiers, military personnel, and law enforcement officers to stop the rioting, looting, vandalism, assaults, and the wanton destruction of property," he said. "We will end it now."

He called on governors to use their National Guard units to "dominate the streets" and said he would deploy the active duty military if governors failed to use the National Guard more forcefully.

Trump Justice Department Killed Police Reform Programs That Could Have Helped Minneapolis

Snip

"Since President Donald Trump took office, his appointees at the Justice Department have all but eliminated the federal government’s police reform work.

The Civil Rights Division’s police practices group has shrunk by half, and it hasn’t opened any major pattern-or-practice investigations that could rein in police departments that regularly violate constitutional rights. "
