Trump, who has teleprompters set up tonight at his rally in Wisconsin, is ridiculing Biden for using teleprompters.

Does he think the people in the crowd don’t see the prompters?

Or does he think his supporters just don’t care?

This is what journalists on the trail look like this year.

A teleprompter for a speech is NOT the same as a teleprompter for replying to questions from press—and James knows it.

This isn’t about the election—we HAVE to restore faith in press by weeding out bad actors like this.

Trump was for it, so the Democrats and bureaucrats and MSM were against it. It really is that simple.

Well, that and the fact that it was a useful treatment undercut the constant fear porn and the justification for arbitrary and dictatorial actions by local officials and endless judgment from the Army of Karens.

I finally got a chance yesterday to watch the video of the British Dr. Johnson (I think that's his name) about the Spanish hospitals (controlled) trial of giving Vitamin D to covid patients that someone posted on jom. It had approximately the same success rate.

The doctor says it is 'unethical' of WHO and an Oxford group not to be performing large scale trials of this vitamin right now because it is an effective treatment. This hospital was also giving HCQ and the Azithromycin antibiotic as their preferred treatment.

Unethical? I think it's hideous and criminal of the people in charge of once-respected health institutions, spineless doctors, the heads of all of the USA's media organizations, as well as the world's, to indulge their hatred of our president, as well as how far the reach of the Chi-Com's money has destroyed so many corporations and institutions -- all in an evil lust for control and power.

I am so pissed off at the left and its evil and lunacy this morning. I can barely write coherently.

That union would be the Rathke Army, or SEIU, here. They're also trying to shut down the Chicago hospital system through strikes, since they got that "Health Care Worker" mandate rammed through the IL Legislature, and got themselves named as the only "qualified" union, and thus got the only direct funding from the state Medicare coffers for dues. Quite the scam.

Neely also has a “ Music Theory and White Supremacy” video on his channel, that would have been an interesting and informative survey if not for the constant “RACIST!” undertone. An undertone Neely wasn’t honest enough to own himself, so he laid off that “wet work” on a Hunter College music prof guest.

Yesterday the Town of Nantucket, was just declared by Gov Baker to be a "Red Zone" because we have had 100 positive test and one death since the beginning of the year and our winter population is maybe 15,000 and summer 40,000.

Starting today, the Town has asked citizens to snap pictures of citizens they observe who are not masked and to email them to the Town so the miscreant can be identified and "dealt with" (fined I suppose, or at least re-educated).

That right there is what we have devolved into...brought to you by the section of the country famous for the Salem Witch Trials.

I need a Walden Pond. :)

Guess that is a state of mind, so that's why lately I've been taking a few 'news free days' every week.

Yesterday at yoga (all of us masked up and social distancing) one of the women mentioned she'd been to some shop or business that didn't require masks (she and I, plus several more of the yogis) don't believe wearing the masks prevents much but are required to wear them to do the yoga classes) -- anyway, one of the other women (who has told me she keeps a running tally every day of new cases, hospitalizations, deaths in our county, plus the state (she has a spread sheet) -- and has kept it since last Spring when we opened up) shook her head and said, 'THAT'S DANGEROUS' about not requiring masks. People have been scared, no, terrified, by Fauci, Birk, WHO, the news media, and who knows when it will change.

MissMarple2

Jane and joan,

You should live with one like I do! She's still scared of not wearing a mask and when I try to point out that the masks don't do any good I get this long argument about wearing masks in hospital operating rooms and so forth.

She doesn't believe me about mortality and accuses me of just making stuff up to defend Trump and then won't discuss politics any more.

This wears me out, which is why I appreciate President Trump's energy and rallies. And I am SO tired of the talking point that he's only in it for himself!

Re: Girl from Ipanema, I've always been fascinated by the song since I first heard the Getz and Joao Gilberto version as a youngster. Neely is annoying on that video, but I did learn that the sheet music is in the Key of F whereas the classic recordings are in the key of D flat--I always wondered why it didn't sound right when I played it from the sheet music. Oddly enough, I can't find the sheet music in D flat, even on websites that sell transposed sheet music. Isn't D flat the same key as C # which has (ykies!) 7 sharps

D flat is C #.

"The article below talks about the FireSafe Council TRIED to do in Berry Creek…but got stopped by the “Environmental” geniuses,who wanted an 18 month delay to “study the environmental impact” of cutting down trees!

I work with the FireSafe Council, and in OUR area we had a grant of almost exactly the same size, but WE fought to get the work done…and they did it. We may still burn, but the excellent people at the FireSafe Council have given us a chance. Berry Creek is GONE…the 120 acres of “fire mitigation” (roughly the amount they did around our little town) might have saved them."

--I have a masters degree. I ran CIA and NSA. Trump wants a patriotic commission, 1776 Commission. What does he know about that? Absolutely nothing. And he’s not interested in facts.--

The worst kind of argument from authority or appeal to authority is when it is your own retarded authority you're appealing to.
As evidence of his idiocy we have the incoherent non sequitur that Trump knows nothing about "a patriotic commission, 1776 commission."
Presumably the numbnuts means Trump knows nothing about the events of 1776 not a commission regarding it. Regardless, isn't that the point of a commission; to gather some actual authorities [some of whom may even have masters degrees] and teach actual history?
