Tag team and switch - HARRIS for President and BIDEN as VP.

Creates great excitement in a "NEW" candidate that MAKES HISTORY... or should we say "HERSTORY" as she'd be the FIRST female President. (Should have been Hillary, but DEMs got to keep trying to make that happen.)

People worried about Joe's age.... as VP he'd be more in the background and dealing with Senate which he can do easily. He's NOT ego driven, so as long as the list he and Kamala want to accomplish gets done... he'd probably enjoy watching her shine and giving her Dark Brandon support.

She's young, energized, working on messaging and already been training for the job as the VP has to step up if anything happens to the President.

She already has a list of what needs to be done and can work to tailor it with more progressive items while she and Joe work together to get MORE done as long as they get the TRIFECTA in 2024 and keep our Democracy in tact.

What do people think?

How can Christians support tRUMP? By blinding themselves to all other Christian values.

Found an old article that discects 10 ways that it's not possible to truly have a functional Christian Faith AND support tRUMP because of how tRUMP stands against everything Jesus taught US.


1. He lacks compassion.
2. He appeals to fear and anger.
3. He is enamored with "greatness" and ego, but has no concern for "goodness" or service.
4. He lies — a lot. (Around 76% of his statements are verifiably false per PolitiFact)
5. He is hostile to women.
6. He speaks about his daughter in a disrespectful and sexualized way.
8. He does not model sacrifice or altruism.
9. He doesn’t seem to care about the poor.
10. His love of money is more apparent than his love of God or others.

NOT to mention, that ANYONE you make into a GOLD Statue is more like IDOL worship than giving GOD any credit.

Need to vent.

My husband is mostly THE BEST.

I have been depressed and so has he. His is more physical depression, sleeping a lot and being defensive. Mine is feeling alone in the struggle to keep our life together balanced. I feel like (and have SOME objective documentation that I do A LOT more around the house than he does even though he works from home and I have been working outside the home and having to put in overtime.)

I am refraining from saying the things that "I need to say" because I know he won't take it as I mean it, but will get passive/aggressive.

SO I went in another direction and bought us tickets to one of our favorite singing groups as an early Christmas present and sent him off to get us a hotel in the area. THIS is meeting one of my personal relationship goals with him (spending quality time together away from the chaos) AND bringing something positive/constructive into our weekend.

I don't know what to DO about what I need to say.

He is an adult.
I make dinner even though I am exhausted after work.
I wash dishes also.
I am OK with those two things.
There are things he does that contribute and take some of the stress off me.

BUT I am NOT feeling it is my job to pick up his messes on the table when we eat and I am not wanting to feed him if he's going to keep this up. I am NOT the damn maid.

Should I just pick up his messes and be quiet?
Should I start leaving a bill for services rendered?
I HAVE already told him it is not a restaurant, I'm not the waitress and he is capable of taking his dishes to the sink, trash to the trashcan and recycling to the recycling bin. He does this EVEN WHEN HE IS HOME ALONE. He leaves his messes for me to pick up.

He hasn't always been this way.

Intellectually he agrees we should both pick up after ourselves, but he goes into his distractions so much that he is clueless and does NOTHING around the house unless I basically make a list and make him pick something to do. AND I have to do at least 75% of the list to his 5%.

Our insurance covers mental health like therapy, but not couples therapy. Sigh.

Trump faces TOTAL DEFEAT with CRUSHING Legal Blows

Source: Meidas Touch - Legal AF

Michael Popok and Karen Friedman Agnifilo, discuss:

1. Trump’s efforts to delay the Mar a Lago criminal trial until after the Presidential Election;
2. Merrick Garland’s Department of Justice deciding that Trump is NOT entitled to presidential immunity after all for any statements he made against E Jean Carroll to defame her while president;
3. Fani Willis and the Fulton County DA finally seating the regular grand jury which will start its secret proceedings on Tuesday to consider the criminal case against Donald Trump and many others for election interference in Georgia and other states.

Read more:

Meidas Touch has been great at showing the "source documents" and breaking down what the legalese is behind a lot of things going on at these higher level courts.

Glenn Kirschner also broke the decision about DOJ not defending tRUMP in E Jean Carroll case.

It's a shorter view if you're mostly interested in that story.

100K views 4 hours ago
The Department of Justice just changed course in connection with the defamation suit E. Jean Carroll brought against Donald Trump. The DOJ previously took the position that the lies Donald Trump told about
E. Jean Carroll while he was president - his defamatory statements - were within the scope of his official presidential duties.

Members of Congress CALLING OUT tRUMP Supporters to ATTACK

Reps. Clay Higgins and Andy Biggs are using MILITARY terminology about HOW supporters are to take action on behalf of who "THEY" consider the "REAL" pReziDENT. (( rPOTUS is code for REAL POTUS))

Louisiana Repuke CLAY HIGGINS on Twitter:

President Trump said he has "been summoned to appear at the Federal Courthouse in Miami on Tuesday, at 3 PM."

This is a perimeter probe from the oppressors. Hold. rPOTUS has this.

Buckle up. 1/50K know your bridges. Rock Steady calm. That is all.

Messaging: Communities that thrive VS chaos that divides.

POLITICS GIRL hosts Billy Ray

Winning over the Independents to our cause so we can sweep the country and win at least 2/3rds majority.

Votes NOT Violence.
Books NOT Bans.
TRUTH NOT Tantrums.
People NOT Politics

THE REICH WING goose stepping to the MAGA beat are AGENTS OF CHAOS.

tRUMP is the ONLY FPOTUS who has broken so many laws while in office and when he left that he has multiple lawsuits in multiple states and a DOJ Investigation pending is NOT WORTHY of calling himself a Republican.


IT ISN’T a FAILURE of the SYSTEM to catch a criminal masquerading as an upstanding citizen while robbing people blind.

IT’S A FEATURE of the SYSTEM to PROTECT We The People from the Predator Oligarchs who only want to fill their pockets and don’t care who has to die to make that happen.

Did people here know about Reuters Trust Principles?

I find it quite refreshing to see they put these together in 1941 and kept them in 1984 when they became a public company.



Thomson Reuters itself is obliged and committed to apply the Trust Principles to its operations. The charter documents of Thomson Reuters Corporation include provisions to safeguard the Trust Principles as they apply to the Thomson Reuters business and require Thomson Reuters Directors, in the performance of their duties, to have due regard to the Trust Principles, by the proper exercise of their powers and in accordance with their other duties as Directors.
The Trust Principles are:

1) That Reuters shall at no time pass into the hands of any one interest, group, or faction;
2) That the integrity, independence, and freedom from bias of Thomson Reuters shall at all times be fully preserved;
3) That Reuters shall supply unbiased and reliable news services to newspapers, news agencies, broadcasters, and other media subscribers and to businesses, governments, institutions, individuals, and others with whom Reuters has or may have contracts;
4) That Thomson Reuters shall pay due regard to the many interests which it serves in addition to those of the media; and
5) That no effort shall be spared to expand, develop, and adapt the news and other services and products of Thomson Reuters so as to maintain its leading position in the international news and information business

Thomson Reuters Founders Share Company was established in 1984 when Reuters became a public company. The directors of Thomson Reuters Founders Share Company (known as ‘Trustees’) have a duty to ensure, to the extent possible, that the Trust Principles are complied with.

What do you call it when you MELT DOWN from a MAGA tirade aimed at you?

I am trying to figure out what to call it when I completely melted down when my Grandson started doing the MAGA roll on me and I had to come inside, was out shoveling driveway with him due to this mega storm hitting Minnesota.

IT FELT LIKE PTSD, but I don't know why. I was chaotic emotionally, felt like I had to defend myself or leave. I had my BFF on the bluetooth headset and neither of us was sure HOW it all unraveled because she could only hear my side of the conversation.

I'd offered Grandson $20 to help me shovel the driveway in back of our house. He and I had a quick spat ALTHOUGH when I went to ask for his help, all was good. I caught him being "good" and productively shoveling the FRONT walk without being asked by me. Offered him cash money and then went to put on layers.

THEN I got on the PC to log off and there was water dripping down on my hands. I went back up stairs and the Grandson was on the game console directly above me with a puddle mark at his feet. He'd left his boots on and the snow melted through the floor and sub-floor which his father, my son, told me is not doing well. SO I pointed this out to him as an issue and asked him to put his boots in front porch in future and he tried to tell me it could have been leaky pipes.

I said, "NO, there aren't any pipes above the computer desk downstairs and I can see this puddle mark exactly above ..."

He interrupts me and blusters that there are pipes "EVERYWHERE" downstairs.

"Dude, I live down there and the ceiling is open. I can SEE the pipes." Guess I started raising my voice because I hate it when they try to gaslight me.

"QUIT YELLING AT ME. I'm not talking to you anymore" Grandson said.

I go super quiet, "You can come down and look. There are NO PIPES. Just PLEASE put your boots in front porch in the future. That's all I'm asking." No answer.

"FINE. You want to play the victim. I can make that happen." I head down with the option to just turn off the internet so he can't use that as a reason to ignore talking to me. My Hubby was even on board with it, but I decided to be calm and mature and just go out and shovel. I said this all loudly from downstairs so he knew he dodged a consequence.

On the phone with my BFF via bluetooth speaker I am telling her about how that went and how I'm on my own. Grandson shows up from the driveway side and starts helping, BUT he is on a RANT that it's awful how his Dad and I can't talk and that I should just LEAVE whenever things get bad and that I OFTEN START the political fights.

I DO NOT. I go upstairs with the EXPRESS intent of NON-Political conversation. AND with the hope of getting out of the room without being dragged into one because I am trying to build a relationship with my son that can withstand such a conversation.

I tell Grandson this and he insists that I DO START IT SOMETIMES.

"WHEN? Give me one example."

"Gas prices." He says.

"WHEN" I insist.

"I don't know. Then he goes on and on about Blue Laser Project and telling me what I need to do with his Dad."

I try to play by his rules and we make one or two agreements. He's going to put his boots on the linoleum in the front porch so we don't get leakage downstairs. I accept his apology that he didn't think he owed me.

BUT the fact that he's CLUELESS about what Jim Crow Laws are and thinks Biden voted FOR THEM blew up my brain and I just had to leave.

I've been feeling suicidal off and on because of the way my Son and Grandkids only remember that I am here when they want something from me and once they get what they want, decide it's their job to save me from myself and tell me the legitimate KNEWS from TicTOk.

It FEELS LIKE PTSD, but IS there a better name for it?

How many here knew that George Washington ordered slaughter of Indians during Revolutionary War?

I get that he might have had to fight and kill any that sided with the British, because war is war.

BUT what I never knew is that he raised the villages of those tribes that had sided WITH US as well.

Started with a Politics Girl interview with Matthew Cooke.

I objected to him exaggerating about George Washington being a murderer with the teeth of dead slaves in his mouth.

Well, by putting that in one sentence, it implied that George had slaves murdered so he could have dentures. THAT has never, ever been put forth, though slaves having to give over teeth because they didn't have the right to refuse... BAD ENOUGH.

I wrote to MeidasTouch because that is how I was subscribed to Politics Girl. And I found Matthew Cooke on FB and messaged him too.

Props to the guy. He replied within 30 minutes.

So now I know more, thought I'd share.


Secondary Sources confirm it happened.


MY QUESTION is how much of it was Washington's idea/plan/goal and how much of it was the Continental Congress?
