Sure, some of these links are useful or whatever but I SWEAR the only reason I read these posts is because of TOP PHOTO Guy.

Nicely done.

The most often used phrase in the Lamestream Media, by far, is “sources say”, or “officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity”, or anything similar which allows Fake News to make up a phony quote from a person who doesn’t even exist. The American people should demand NAMES!

I had a that a dream...I had a dream last night that General George Patton slapped Brian Stelter so hard the tectonic ripple emanating off his baldy baby blubbering bean eradicated Covid-19 thru what the General deemed "plenty o' positive pulsin' power." I sat up in bed and applauded like a Frenchman greeting Lindy at Le Bourget Airfield and then I laid back and slept a sleep much like Ripley after she flushed the Pelosibeast out of the loading bay door.

of course obama endorsed Biden, just like he endorsed Hilary. Black folks were really happy for a couple months after obama was elected. Obama started by working with hunter biden, altho he tried his best to hide it, he was always required to shine Biden's shoes.

And yet, that never happens.

If we demanded names, no one would talk to the reporters & we would have even less information than we have now.

If you're going to investigate Hunter Biden, shouldn't you wait until he's been accused of a crime?
