Wall Street loves Biden because he'll let corporations offshore a lot of manufacturing because of his affection for China, instead of bringing it back to America. He won't even be making decisions. It will be Harris, AOC, Bernie, George Soros and others with billions of dollars.

Biden will drive us into a recession. We already tried taxing U.S. companies more, which is what Biden wants to do. That didn't work under George W. Bush or Obama. The companies just started taking their operations to other countries and raised prices on their goods and services.

Biden isn't making a play for red states. He's off the campaign trail he's not going anywhere or doing anything. He's butt hurt over questions about his and his son's scandal. Plus he can't remember what he running for or who his wife is or who he's running against.

Biden in Hidin. Thats all this is about. He can't answer questions about being on the take. He can't answer questions about flip-flopping on the Green New Deal and face AOC. He can't show his face anywhere they produce oil or natural gas.

His basement is about the only place his "support" is secure. Not to mention there he won't be wandering around the stage behind his wife like we saw on TV, despite the media not highlight it.

Obama/Biden had the corporate tax so high in America (30%) that companies started moving operations to Ireland, where the tax is 9%. Then they threatened to fine those companies.

I've spoken with several people who watch TV news who haven't even heard of the Hunter Biden "pay for play" scandal -- and his father as "the big guy" in the emails and getting a 10% cut. The people who watch news regularly don't have cable. That's how corrupt our mainstream media has become. With this kind of corruption of the liberal media and the cover it provides to Democrats, it's easy to see why so many people are uninformed and misguided about whom to vote for.

8:03, if you think the Democrats were honestly bipartisan in recent years you have not been paying attention. Republicans finally learned that lesson - don't play nice with the Dems because they will knife you in the back the first chance they get.

Get ready for four Supreme Court justices in January. This election looks like it will secure the Democrats all three branches of the Government, and I say this as a Republican. There will be nothing to stop them from doing it, and the truth is they deserve to do it. This rush to approve ACB after what happened to Merrick Garland is the straw that broke the camels back. The Republicans won the battle by getting her approved in record fashion, but lost the war. The Dems will have a liberal Supreme. Kurt for generations after this. Completely short-sided to rush this confirmation in an election year.

The Democrats were the ones that politicized the Supreme Court and made things worse every step of the way. They first applied the Roe v. Wade litmus test. They attacked nominations aiming to destroy them and their personal reputations: Bork, Thomas, & Kavanaugh. They first filibustered nominations and then eliminated the filibuster when it worked against them. And they are ones who turned the federal judiciary into an instrument of policy by using it to impose by fiat those goals they could not accomplish legislatively: abortion and gay marriage. Now they throw a tantrum when they don’t get their way. In all of it, they fail to account for one thing - God is still in charge. It was he who drew an end to RBG’s life at this critical time. The timing is his, not the Republicans’. He raised up ACB to be the right woman at the right time for the SC. It is his will, not the Democrats’ that will determine our nation’s future. Thy will be done.

Surprising that the Democraps are supposed to be the champions of women and blacks. Yet they and their liberal media allies were not celebrating the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court and the swearing in performed by the great Justice Clarence Thomas.

The Democrapic mayors and governors have been trying to stall out the economy as much as possible so Trump can't brag about the stellar economy he brought to America before the Chinese Communists unleashed COVID on America and the rest of the world. The Democraps don't care how many people they hurt with their extreme lockdowns and restrictions. They only want extreme socialist power and damn anyone who gets in their way of that goal. Lyin' Blunderin' Biden will be told what to do by extreme socialist puppet-masters pulling his strings in a backroom. Odd that the Chinese Communists want Biden to win so they can negotiate with a senile idiot.

I regrettably voted for Obama, but the Democrats have gone off the deep end. They’ve become the party of lies, lawlessness, very late-term abortions, violence destroying once great American cities, high taxes on our paychecks to pay for socialist wet dreams, weak military, open borders, free healthcare for illegal aliens at taxpayer expense, defunding the police, sanctuary cities, taking away guns, sending $1.7 billion of our taxpayer dollars on pallets to Iranian radical leaders so they can kill more of our troops, packing the Supreme Court, and more idiotic ideas. No thanks.

President Obama countered that he would perform his constitutional duty and nominate a successor to Scalia, adding, “Your job doesn’t stop until you are voted out or until your term expires.”

The historical record supports that position: 14 presidents have appointed 21 justices during presidential election years. A half-dozen presidents, classic lame ducks, filled Supreme Court seats even though their successors had been elected.

So ACB is the 22nd justice appointed during an election year, and Barry got one in during his time as president, dimwits and their short dick memories. Weird.

11:19 definitely true, two things the demoncraps hate the most are women and blacks, they don’t even try to hide it anymore.
