  1. I remember Ted Turner the owner of CNN married Hanoi Jane Fonda so this may be karma. From American Insider: It appears that CNN has hit rock bottom as the network recorded the lowest weekend ratings in a key demographic in its entire history. Critics say this is “a real sign” of the collapse of the network. CNN has been criticized for becoming increasingly biased and promoting a radical far-left political agenda. Many of the network’s hosts and reporters openly express their vehement hatred of former President Donald Trump. CNN saw just 55,000 viewers from the important 25- to 54-year-old demographic during the past weekend. Only 43,000 watched its Sunday prime-time shows.
  2. From American Insider: . . . A poll from the left-wing outlet Washington Post found Trump is leading Joe Biden by a whopping ten percentage points. Trump is predicted to win in a hypothetical match-up with 52 percent of the vote. Biden is receiving just 42 percent. Trump is also the 2024 Republican frontrunner with a massive lead against GOP rivals . . . Moreover, Biden is struggling in several key demographics. Among independents, the poll found that Trump is leading by 13%. Among Hispanics, Trump is ahead 6%. end quote Peace. Freedom from wars. Fiscal responsibility. A free country and culture, and a free market. Prosperity. I think the Trump ticket will resound among Independents and Republicans. And perhaps some democrats too, may not vote in the 2024 election as a protest or disinterest in Joe Biden. t’s looking good for free America.
  3. Lindsey Graham said: “I am very pleased that President Biden took the time and effort to visit Ukraine, and meet with President Zelensky. This was the right signal to send at the right time. A presidential visit to Ukraine, along with the statements made by Vice President Harris at the Munich Security Conference that Russia is committing crimes against humanity in Ukraine, are a powerful combination. “However, for the visits and statements to matter to their fullest extent, decisive action must immediately follow. “First, we must designate Russia as a state sponsor of terrorism under U.S. law. That would also help ensure any lethal assistance to Russia, provided by China, is devastating to the Chinese economy. Second, we should stop the debate about advanced fighter aircraft for Ukraine. Instead, we should start immediately training Ukrainian pilots and maintainers, and provide them the advanced fighter jets to not only win this war, but deter future aggression. “We must be doing all we can to allow the victim of the crime against humanity, Ukraine, to defend itself from the war criminal, Putin. “Words are powerful, but they must be followed by powerful actions as well.” end quote During Senator Lindsey Graham’s recent trip to Ukraine he made a few other interesting points. Russia is the aggressor. America is not losing any of our troops to the war there. Ukraine is depleting Russia’s resourses to take over other countries. Ukraine has halved Russia’s ability to wage another war. So any countries Putin had his eyes on are safer. I think Ukraine will repel the Russian monster, and give the world a breathing space. I think we will monitor any countries that are trading with Russia and watch out for any Communist Chinese assistance. If China does butt in we will cease all trade with them. Humanity has come a long way towards universal peace and prosperity. But we the free world, must watch out for three international villains: North Korea, China and Russia.
  4. I told a family member about my suspicion that Michelle is testing the waters but they think she is merely selling her book. MO has no political background. She has no understanding of the military or being commander in chief. I will wait for more evidence to be broadcast to be sure she is running. Of course there could be an argument made that she picked up "experience" through her husband's two terms . . .
  5. Biden continues to have memory problems and in speeches he may tell a story, forgets he told the story, and then he tells it again. Ted Cruz suggested the Democrats may ditch Joe Biden for Michelle Obama before long. From TrendyMatter: . . . Cruz said, “Here’s the scenario that I think is perhaps the most likely and most dangerous. In August of 2024, the Democrat kingmakers jettison Joe Biden and parachute in Michelle Obama." From the web. The prevailing question on many people's minds centers around the possibility of the Democratic Party nominating former First Lady Michelle Obama as their presidential candidate in the upcoming 2024 election. Recent polls illustrate Michelle's significantly higher favorability and admiration among Democratic voters in comparison to Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. end quotes But how good a candidate would she be? All I can say is, she does quite well on Talk Shows. I have no idea how she might do be campaigning against other democrats. And as far as having solid policies and arguing with Donald Trump? That is a big “what if.” As yet, I don’t think she needs her own site here on OL. But if she launches a site, that is when she will have more relevance. Peter
  6. Nope. The last big "upheaval" was Trump nominations for the Supreme Court. The Court is now totally linked to the Constitution. IN our lifetimes.
  7. About the upcoming Republican debate, on Wednesday from Axios: . . . What to watch: The debate, co-moderated by Fox News Media's Stuart Varney and Dana Perino and UNIVISION's Ilia Calderón, is scheduled for 9 p.m. ET on Sept. 27 at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library. Trump's speech in Detroit that evening is scheduled in prime time as well, the New York Times first reported . . . .
  8. The Powerball cash payout is $320,500,000. After taxes? You only get, on average minus federal taxes, state taxes, etc., 55 percent. Soooo . . . 320.5 x .55 = $176,275,000. Round it off to $176 million. I think it is getting high enough that I may buy two tickets for the Wednesday, September 20th drawing which I think is around 11pm. Four bucks is worth the fun.
  9. The 2020 election fraud is getting old Marcia. beat a dead horse idiom chiefly US, informal 1 : to keep talking about a subject that has already been discussed or decided I don't mean to beat a dead horse, but I still don't understand what happened. 2 : to waste time and effort trying to do something that is impossible Is it just beating a dead horse to ask for another recount of the votes? From The Wall Street Journal” Trudeau Says 'Credible' Allegations Link India to Killing of Canadian Sikh Leader. Canadians, what’s the story about that? Alas. Roger Whittaker, British Folk Singer Known for 'Durham Town,' Dies at 87. I have one of his albums. Good bye Roger.
  10. Another message blocked by Microsoft Edge. A box comes up when I try to see the message.
  11. Saudi Arabia cut production, and of course Biden stopped construction of the Keystone Pipeline his first day in office. Biden-omics wants America to "go electric" but I have heard stories about people with electric cars having a rough time recharging if they travel. I will stick with gas powered engines for now. Let others "experiment" with electric.
  12. That is an extraordinary entry in Wikipedia tmj. Thanks. In a sense we have never changed our military outlook on the world . . . and that is mostly a good thing for us and our allies and for neutrals. We have saved the world a lot of heart ache. But the expense has been enormous for America. Maintaining 600 military facilities around the globe must cost billions. My first hand experience has been to live with my military parents and siblings in Norfolk, Virginia, San Diego, Quonset Point Rhode Island, fourteen other bases in California, and Pearl Harbor in Hawaii, and Sasebo, in Japan. And in the active military I was in South Korea. I can't say I have the experience of General Butler but I have some sense of the evil in the world from my experiences that match some of his. And I too, wonder about how extended does America want to become, protecting the world while we lose billions in tax dollars and go deeper into debt?
  13. Imprimis, a Publication of Hillsdale College, had an article that said The United States has 600 military facilities around the globe. I haven’t read it all yet but I saw at the beginning the author was discussing the meaning of the word Imperialism. I know we are spread all over for our own interests but we are also protecting other countries and people. And I saw on the news that actor Sean Penn had made a documentary about the war in Ukraine. He has made seven visits there, offering his support for Ukraine. Ukraine‘s President. Zelenskyy and Penn hit it off because of their ties to comedy and acting. Peter From Wikipedia: Volodymyr Oleksandrovych Zelenskyy[a] (also romanized as Zelensky or Zelenskiy;[b] born 25 January 1978) is a Ukrainian politician who has been serving as the sixth president of Ukraine since 2019. He was formerly a comedian and actor. Born to a Ukrainian Jewish family, Zelenskyy grew up as a native Russian speaker in Kryvyi Rih, a major city of Dnipropetrovsk Oblast in central Ukraine. Prior to his acting career, he obtained a degree in law from the Kyiv National Economic University. He then pursued a career in comedy and created the production company Kvartal 95, which produced films, cartoons, and TV shows including the TV series Servant of the People, in which Zelenskyy played a fictional Ukrainian president. The series aired from 2015 to 2019 and was immensely popular. A political party with the same name as the TV show was created in March 2018 by employees of Kvartal 95.
  14. Interesting. I think President Trump is gliding into a second term. Thanks, Marcia.
  15. From Newsweek: . . . Trump is edging out Biden in seven key states according to a Reuters / lpsos conducted online from September 8 through September 14. In the poll, which gathered responses from 4,413 American adults, Trump led with 41 percent to Biden's 35 percent in Georgia, Arizona, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Nevada and Michigan . . . . From Rasmussen: Friday, September 15, 2023. The prosecution of former President Donald Trump by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis is unfair, according to a majority of Georgia voters, most of whom have concerns about the integrity of elections in their state. A new telephone and online survey by Rasmussen Reports . . . finds that 56% of Likely Georgia voters believe it is likely Trump is being unfairly prosecuted by Willis, including 39% who say it’s Very Likely. Thirty-seven percent (37%) don’t think it’s likely Willis is unfairly prosecuting Trump, including 28% who say an unfair prosecution is Very Unlikely.
