  1. This raises a very interesting conundrum. If trump, and by extension his family, is innocent as he self proclaims, why would he need a pardon? https://www.thedailybeast.com/hannity-says-trump-should-pardon-his-whole-family-and-himself Hannity: Trump Should ‘Pardon His Whole Family and Himself’ Fox News host and informal Trump adviser Sean Hannity on Monday called for President Donald Trump to pardon himself and his family prior to exiting the White House in January. Days after the president announced a full pardon for his former national security adviser Michael Flynn,

Much like he has done with his apartments, hotels, and casinos, trump continues to screw the average person by not paying his bills.... https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/donald-trump/city-leaders-trump-pay-your-bills-help-us-fight-coronavirus-n1184646 Here's how some city leaders say President Donald Trump could immediately help them grapple with the coronavirus crisis: Pay bills they already sent his campaign committee months or years ago. Fourteen municipal governments — from Albuquerque, New Mexico, to Wildwood, New Jersey — want Trump's campaign committee to clear a com
  3. As time goes on, seems even republicans were tiring of trump. Just proves not all politicians are crazy and also proves that self preservation is at the top of their agendas. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/11/28/us/politics/trump-republicans-election-results.html In Key States, Republicans Were Critical in Resisting Trump’s Election Narrative They refuted conspiracy theories, certified results, dismissed lawsuits and repudiated a president of their own party.

While they may not be sick, how far does it spread? https://www.cp24.com/news/19-confirmed-cases-of-covid-19-reported-at-thorncliffe-park-public-school-tdsb-1.5209710?cache=ifpvdgct 19 confirmed cases of COVID-19 reported at Thorncliffe Park Public School: TDSB The testing of asymptomatic students and staff at a school in East York has resulted in 19 additional cases of COVID-19.

  7. We should. U.S. policy dictates much of what affects our economy as they are our largest trading partner. From tariffs on aluminum, to the latest drug buying policy, it affects us all. If you don't care, don't complain about what our government is doing either.

  10. This is a copy and past from another site... Donald Trump and his lawyers have been SCREAMING voter fraud on TV, Twitter and everywhere else, but they have NEVER alleged fraud in the courtroom. Not once. Trump and his lawyers always claim that they have evidence of voter fraud in public, but when they get inside a courtroom, and a judge asks them for proof of voter fraud, they ALWAYS flatly state that "they are not alleging voter fraud." Instead, they then simply try to get either mail in ballots disqualified, or they whine about signatures, or they claim there were no poll watchers, o
  11. One shouldn't feel guilty for Flynn. The fact is he pleaded guilty twice. If he was innocent, why didn't he state that from the beginning. Probably because he wasn't. This is just an attempt to garner sympathy from the conspiracy crowd for a convict. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/05/07/opinion/michael-flynn-charges-dropped.html Don’t Forget, Michael Flynn Pleaded Guilty. Twice. Even President Trump has said his former national security adviser lied to the F.B.I. When asked about the plea at the time, Mr. Trump said, “I had to fire General Flynn because he lied to the

  18. I was told this by a middle eastern friend, so I had to go looking. Apparently the sentiment 'over there' is that trump will strike Iran in his waning days to create a total mess for Biden. That is why Pompeo is on a sweep of middle eastern allies currently, and why the U.S. is selling arms to certain countries to placate them. Now to sit back and watch... https://apnews.com/article/joe-biden-donald-trump-iran-middle-east-baghdad-7532d20c40b9d1240c77f26f621d2902 Iran’s allies on high alert in Trump’s final weeks in office BAGHDAD (AP) — Iran has instructed allies acros

Canadian administrations simply took their “eye off the ball,” said Earl Brown, an infectious disease expert and a former member of the H1N1 vaccine task group in Canada. After that pandemic, a review found that vaccine production capacity was “right at the top” of the list of problems, he said. It wasn’t always that way. “We had great vaccine producers in Canada -- world leaders essentially -- 50 years ago,” he told CTV

  23. No, it wasn't a win for conservatism, trump was a push to legitimize racism and white supremacy. https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2019/06/trump-racism-comments/588067/ https://www.brookings.edu/blog/fixgov/2019/08/14/trump-and-racism-what-do-the-data-say/ First, Donald Trump’s support in the 2016 campaign was clearly driven by racism, sexism, and xenophobia. While some observers have explained Trump’s success as a result of economic anxiety, the data demonstrate that anti-immigrant sentiment, racism, and sexism are much more strongly related to support for Trump.

  24. It isn't so much as the number of pardons, it's the who and why. If you are a friend of trump's who broke the law to benefit him, you will be rewarded. Highlights for emphasis are mine. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/factcheck/2020/07/24/fact-check-trump-has-okd-36-clemency-requests-far-fewer-than-others/5440712002/ Clemency in the Obama era The vast majority of the clemency requests Obama granted were also commutations, not pardons — the opposite of almost every president before him.
