Trump did many good things in his 4 years.

One thing that set off the protesters/invaders off was seeing on their tv screens actual ballot paper proof that some people voted multiple times.

But they didn't.

They saw what was purported to be "actual ballot paper proof," but it was a sham.

A few people were caught having done that - a couple in this state, one in that, etc. Note that they were caught.

https://www.cnn.com/2021/01/20/americas/pfizer-canada-vaccine/index.html

(CNN)Frustration visibly boiled over with some Canadian leaders Tuesday as Pfizer told Canada that it would not receive any vaccine doses next week due to the continuing manufacturing disruptions at its facility in Belgium.

Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau sought to reassure Canadians that vaccine deliveries would pick up again in a few weeks and that the overall goal, to have every willing Canadian vaccinated by September, would remain on track.

But it was Ontario's Premier Doug Ford who bluntly voiced the frustration of many provincial leaders as Pfizer continues to cut its vaccine delivery schedule to Canada.

"We got to be on these guys like a blanket, I'd be outside that guy's house. Every time he moved, I'd be saying, 'Where's our vaccines?' Other people are getting them, the European Union is getting them, why not Canada? That's my question to Pfizer, we need your support," said Ford during a Tuesday news conference.

Canada's supply of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine comes from the European allotment and not from nearby manufacturing facilities in the US, since the Trump administration made it clear vaccines would not be exported.

"There's a plant, a Pfizer plant, six hours in Kalamazoo, Michigan, with the Americans," Ford said. "My American friends help us out, we need help once again as we did with the PPE. You have a new President, no more excuses we need your support, and we look forward to your support and that's a direct message to President (Joe) Biden, 'help out your neighbor.'"

Ford made a direct plea to President-elect Joe Biden for a million vaccines for Canada.

The incoming Biden administration is unlikely to release vaccine doses for export in the short term as Biden transition officials have stated they are uncertain of the current supply of vaccines available in the US.

You brought up Acosta.  He's a fool - and on a very low rated network

That finished ahead of Fox News, a lower rated network.

While Kid pretends to honest evaluation of Jim Acosta, he is silent as Maria Bartiromo falsely claimed during her Fox Business show that the mob that stormed the US Capitol was "infiltrated" by Democrats who dressed in MAGA clothes.




Whatabout.........


heh



Like John Sullivan?  eh?

You mean "John Harris," don't you?

You're the one who told me not to bother commenting about John Sullivan, dickhead.

Trump has also decided to pardon Steve Bannon.

This will make Bannon's testimony in various federal courts harder to dodge with the 5th or anything else.

I sure hope it comes back to bite Trump hard on the ass.

Bannonís owners tend to silence their minions more directly when the rubber hits the road. I wonder if it was a blanket pardon or in reference to particular of Steveís criminal acts.

Well, the trial is set for May, so....

Way to keep up.

Nothing that was said has anything related to your asinine "way to keep up."

ETA: Bannon's own trial date is totally unrelated to what I'm discussing.

Why let a complete lack of evidence (again, despite Kid's protests to the contrary) influence what Fox speakers say on air?!

Heh

So you think Jim Acosta is connected in any way to accurate info?

He's a man grasping at what's left of his ass.

Your political and journalistic lack of acumen remain intact.

Trump has raised the idea of starting a new political party in recent days
From CNN's Jim Acosta

President Trump has raised the idea of starting a new political party in recent days, a senior Trump adviser confirmed. The adviser immediately dismissed the idea as not serious.

A separate White House adviser said the prospect of launching a new party was "lame." Another aide noted Trump is disgusted with Senate Republicans who will soon decide whether the ex-president should be convicted during his impeachment trial.

It's unclear how determined Trump is to begin his own political party. In his farewell message video, Trump vowed his movement will carry on. The latest polls, including one from CNN, find Trump with the lowest approval ratings of his presidency. He is leaving office deeply unpopular. 

The Wall Street Journal first reported Trump's interest in a new party, saying he would call it the "patriot party."

So, banks, did you play a lot of pool when you were a young man?

I used to shoot some stick.

I was decent.

Is this my cue to say...

Chalk one up for you!

In case Josh is asleep

Evidently, you are asleep:
https://www.cnn.com/2021/01/19/politics/biden-team-covid/index.html

They know that the Trump team has not told them everything and they are anxious about what they do not know.

I've observed the recent decline - commented on it, as a matter of fact, before we saw it. It's in the IHME model, Kid.

I am skeptical of it. That's what I said. There is no reason for it, at this stage.

Someone should tell kid the stock market is a "leading indicator" of economic health not a lagging one.


But what happens now?

On October 30th, the DJIA closed at 26,502.

After no "October Surprise" against Biden, the stocks climbed, finishing at 28,323 a week later.
Nov. 13th, 29,480.
Nov. 20th, 29,263.
Nov. 27th, 29,910.
Dec. 4th,   30,218.
Dec. 11th, 30,046.
Dec. 18th, 30,179.
Dec. 24th, 30,200.
Dec. 31st, 30,606.
Jan. 8th,   31,098.
Jan 15th,  30,814.

Going into tomorrow: 30,931.

Biggest post-election bump in a good while.

Honestly, I think they're nuts, but "where do we go from here" seems to be further up, based on current data.
