“America is an idea that I have never lived up too!”

Truer words have never been spoken, poor old joe, he needs to fade away and never be heard from again.

Trump has thousands show up to see and hear him. Obama had a parking lot with a few and some in cars honking their horns. Obama and Biden both plagiarized Trumps speech, so I don't see how Obama can rebuke him that bad he's a copycat. He also panders to muslim terrorists. Remember what Obama said in his book. " If the winds should change in an ugly direction, I will stand with the muslims." And he did just that we had hundreds of terrorist attacks on Obama's watch. He called it work place violence. He's a U.S. traitor and he hates this country about as bad as I hate him. Obama = Traitor.

“Biden Associate: Yeah, I Gave Hunter Biden a $1 Million+ Job As a Favor to His Father.”

It’s starting to hit the fan now.

“Hunter Biden profited from his father’s political connections long before he struck questionable deals in countries where Joe Biden was undertaking diplomatic missions as vice president. In fact, virtually all the jobs listed on his resume going back to his first position out of college, which paid a six-figure salary, came courtesy of the former six-term senator’s donors, lobbyists and allies.”

Hey, anybody know when the Durham report drops, it's been a couple of years so I just want to make sure I don't miss it. Did Obama & Hillary go to jail like we all thought? I guess the shit's really hitting the fan on this laptop thingy right? i mean I haven't heard anything, but you never really know what's going on. I mean the FBI IS investigating, I know that! I mean they're just investigating if it's Russian disinformation but STILL, everyone could go to jail for this right...right???

Hey 9:49, don't you know, the Durham report has led to one charge! And there's a lot more coming but after the election when no one gives a shit, at least that's what rando TKC posters tell me.

Whispering: the Durham report will quietly be released post election and even Bill Barr can't sizzle that thing up.

Very interesting that Barr, who has been all in on trying to taint Dems is suddenly silent. It's almost as if he's trying to distance himself from a guy who is about to lose big.
