    "The president is planning to leave Washington, DC, before Biden is sworn in to avoid having to request to borrow Air Force One, CNN reported on Friday.

    He is expected to depart for Mar-a-Lago on Wednesday morning, according to Bloomberg.

    Trump's decision not to attend Biden's inauguration will make him the first departing president to skip the ceremony in over 150 years."

    I don't think that military sendoff is going to happen.

    She told a reporter from CBS 11 that she could not discuss details of the case. Commenting on the events in Washington, she said that she was “basically following my president. I was following what we were called to do”.

    “He asked us to fly there. He asked us to be there. So I was doing what he asked us to do,” she added.


    It is pretty hard for Trump to say he didn't incite this, with language like that from his own supporters.

    Parler has no case. They have no first amendment right for Amazon to be forced to host them.
    Amazon's legal team will squash Parler like the little parasite they are.

    the Pyramid is actually a useful tool measure your bias.

    That post was over the top.. i simply meant 30K and F16 is a way “rub it in our face” by the tolerant Democrats.

    i think you thought i meant
    i was pro “insurrectionists” chill.

    and the dig at Epoch? Even worse. Uncalled for.
    theEpochTimes gets attacked daily fearless journalism; mainly against the CCP Chinese Communist Party.

    The first quote about wealth confiscation, reminds me of the Scottish/English borderlands. I fell in love with the place and their history. They were regularly raided and looted (the traditional form of tax collecting) by armies from both sides of the border. They finally gave up on farming and legitimate business, because those would always just be taken away. They became mercenaries and bandits instead, switching allegiances mostly based on who was paying better, sometimes because of personal vendettas. The whole region was completely corrupted for centuries.

    Excess taxation punishes the most productive members of society, and rewards those who scheme and play politics. And the US is just getting started.

    “JB wont touch taxes, if annual income under $400,000.”

    i call Bullshit. But you’re right, it starts from the top.

    Corporate income tax rate increase to 28... from low 20

    Take solace not HIGHEST WORLD under OBUMER!

    An increase of 36% in only 4 years. Pathetic.

    And now the conservatives want to lecture the liberals on the economy. Sure.

    When President Trump took office in January 2017, the national debt stood at $19.9 trillion. In October 2020, the national debt reached a new high of $27 trillion.

    The current national debt is 27.75 trillion.

    Thanks Trump!

    No. The debt was around 12T when Obama took office.

    Obama added just over 8T in 8 years. Trump added over 7T in 4 years.

    The debt started exploding under George W. Bush. He expanded it at a higher % than Obama or Trump. It has only accelerated since then.

    Feeling Betrayed, Far-Right Extremists Have A New Message For Trump: 'Get Out Of Our Way'

    [​IMG]

    For months, President Donald Trump’s message to his supporters was clear: The election was being stolen from him, and they needed to fight to take it back.

    So on Jan. 6, during a Trump-promoted rally to “Stop the Steal,” thousands laid siege to the U.S. Capitol in a stunning attempt to do just that. The fallout of their failed insurrection, which resulted in five deaths, was swift: Trump was deplatformed from nearly every major social network and, on Wednesday, impeached for a historic second time.

    When he emerged on camera a short while later, tail tucked between his legs, to condemn the rioters whom he himself had incited, and to call for a peaceful transfer of power to President-elect Joe Biden, his base felt betrayed.

    “So he basically just sold out the patriots who got rounded up for him,” one person wrote in a 15,000-member pro-Trump Telegram group. “Just wow.”

    In online havens for MAGA extremists, including Gab, CloutHub, MeWe, Telegram and far-right message boards such as 8kun, the tone toward Trump is shifting. HuffPost reviewed thousands of messages across these platforms and found that a growing minority of the president’s once-devout backers are now denouncing him and rejecting his recent pleas for peace. Some have called for his arrest or execution, labeling him a “traitor” and a “coward.” Alarmingly, many of those who are irate about Biden’s supposed electoral theft are still plotting to forcibly prevent him from taking office — with or without Trump’s help.

    “We don’t follow you,” another Telegram user wrote, addressing Trump, after the president put out his video urging calm and order. “Be quiet and get out of our way.”

    It has become apparent that now — after his mass radicalization campaign of voter-fraud disinformation and conspiracy-mongering — even Trump can’t stop the dangerous delusion he’s instilled across the country, or the next wave of violence it may soon bring.

    Climate change: Report warns of growing impact on US life

    What did Trump say?

    Donald Trump has called global warming a "hoax" on multiple occasions.

    https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/donald-trump-global-warming-hoax/

    The former president touted his administration's environmental efforts while criticising Democratic measures saying, "Climate change scientists have a political agenda".

    How the fossil fuel industry deliberately misled Americans about climate change

    Over the past few decades, the fossil fuel industry has subjected the American public to a well-funded, well-orchestrated disinformation campaign about the reality and severity of human-caused climate change. The purpose of this web of denial has been to confuse the public and decision-makers in order to delay climate action and thereby protect fossil fuel business interests and defend libertarian, free-market conservative ideologies.

    While fossil fuel companies attacked the science and called on politicians to “reset the alarm,” climate-catalyzed damages worsened, including increased storm intensities, droughts, forest damage and wildfires, all at substantial loss of life and cost to the American people.


    The basic facts of climate change, established over decades of research, can be summarized in five key points:

    1. Global warming is happening.
    2. Human activity is the main cause.
    3. There’s scientific consensus on human-caused global warming.
    4. The impacts are serious and affect people.
    5. We have the technology needed to avoid the worst climate impacts.
