Well George you can thank Trump for the Libs takeover. I mean in four years he lost the House, Senate and now Presidency. You can't be more of a loser than that.

George Rebane

PaulE 943am - Yep, you're right. While Trump personally lost, he had the good sense and ability through a difficult contended administration to benefit the country, and especially America's minorities. We can now watch the black and Hispanic unemployment rates, and the fractions of their household incomes derived from various govt wealth redistribution programs. Rejoice in what you have accomplished.

Famous Republican, Eric Weinstein sez:

"Let me put this in the starkest terms. Our genius in the US is to NOT have our infrastructure nationalized. But laws like “Free Speech” don’t immediately carry over to the private sector. The idea of getting Tech-Finance-Universities-Media to shut down thought and speech is here."

"These new authoritarians are trying to make commerce & the market do what the government legally cannot: make life impossible for dissenters. For the first time, to preserve freedom we will either need to regulate or nationalize. Both of which are terrible options. We’ve lost it."

"Taken to its extreme conclusion, you will be free to bark ideas in a public park, only not to access banking, credit, electronic communication, education, the media. My old joke “Should Republicans be allowed to use the roads & phone system?” doesn’t seem all that funny in 2021"
-------

The loss of the Presidency and the two Senate seats, both near-run things, have put a crack in the dam. The value of the Republicans was never their policies, such as they were, but that they kept an extremist religion at bay.

Game over. New game starts. Have a nice day.

D will not like this one bit. Now we are paying businesses to stay.

“Newsom also wants to give $430 million worth of tax credits to businesses that stay in California and create full-time jobs. That proposal comes as a record number of people are leaving the state, slowing California’s growth rate to its lowest since 1900. A number of high-profile businesses have recently announced they would move their headquarters to other states, including tech giants Oracle and Hewlett-Packard.

The proposal would also extend a popular tax credit for small businesses. Many businesses had to lay off or furlough workers because of the pandemic. Last year, Newsom signed a law that promised to give small business owners a tax break if they hired those workers back. Business owners got a $1,000 credit on their state tax bill for the net increase of each new worker between July 1 and Dec. 1.

Newsom said more than 9,000 businesses have reserved $54 million of those credits so far. His proposal would spend $100 million to extend that program, but offered no further details.

Other benefits include another $50 million for a program that offers up to $100,000 in loans to small businesses, $100 million to expand a sales tax exemption to reduce the cost of manufacturing equipment, and a proposal Newsom says would mitigate the effects of a cap of a federal income tax deduction.

Loser? Emery says? Come back in six months at tell us who the real loser is. I'm sure Emery can tell us then just what HE has gained. Tell us how you supposed business is holding up. The less taxes you will be paying. The less regulations you will have to abide by.
If you ever need a cop,, you will get a social worker instead.

How bout all the fascism coming out into the light Emery?
The LIBitarian in you is nowhere to be heard.

Gotta love your Proggy double standards in D.C. ANTIFA and BLM run wild for months,,, but THAT isn't terrorism.
But when people on the Right do it,, well.... That's different. LIBS attacked the White House yet that was OK.

Yes, the blind leftwingers notwithstanding, California's Sacramento scumbags are finally beginning to acknowledge that the state is losing its productive people and enterprises. Instead of attacking the heart of the problem, their peabrains have come up with the approach of taking more taxpayer monies and trying to bribe companies to exit the exodus. Meanwhile, the LA Times headlines, 'California exodus intensifies as retirees, teachers, musicians seek cheaper, less-crowded pastures'.

A come together moment!
Oh, let’s be nice to the old Buzzard of Off Broad Street....for at least a few hours today.
- First and foremost, Brother Paul does not sport a man bun. Shows he has some sense of self-worth and dignity left in him. Must be a generational thang.
-Second and just as important, Brother Paul, no matter how much he hated Trump’s guts, in a moment of clarity simply could not bring himself to pull the lever for My Gal Hillary...despite this being Hillary County and all, a purplish blue pimple in a sea of red. That shows some character and what we have in common with our Warrior Monk from Nirvana City, aka, the Berzerkley of the Foothills. And they really do go berserk in them thar hills. Let’s give Brother Paul credit where credit is due, ok?
————
Now, rather than being all snarky and call Paul names, I will rise above the fray and turn Paul E’s comment into a kind and gentle teachable moment for us all.
Come, let us reason together,” as our gracious and long suffering host would say.

Point:
“Well George you can thank Trump for the Libs takeover. I mean in four years he lost the House, Senate and now Presidency. You can't be more of a loser than that.” (very first comment on this exciting and new edition of The Sandbox)

Counterpoint:
“As for Congress, someone on Twitter pointed out that for both houses of Congress to be controlled by the opponents of an outgoing president is not unusual, it is the norm. In fact, if Republicans had held one of the two Georgia Senate seats, Donald Trump would be the first president since Jimmy Carter to leave office with one of the two houses still in his party’s hands. You can look it up. Rightly or wrongly, Americans like divided government, and like to rotate power between the parties.” [excellent counter point posted with love 💕]

WHO’S REELING?

“So Republicans should stop fretting and prepare to do battle. That is, to resist the Biden administration and the Democratic Congress with every honest and legal tool at our disposal, every day, beginning on January 20.”

"California exodus intensifies as retirees, teachers, musicians seek cheaper, less-crowded pastures'."

Absolutely, those with more than their fair share of greed are driving out the above. The average person can no longer afford to buy a house. So what is the cause? You and yours will probably babble some incoherent rap about government regulation, bad loans, and taxes but the real reasons belong in the realm of wealth inequality. "investors," with money to burn, drive up prices because they can pay whatever it takes to acquire a property for a rental. Much of the pre-crash real estate price increases were investors trading amongst themselves. Then there is the stagnant wage situation where most of the middle class have seen very little economic gain over the last few decades especially when compared to the wealthy. This was all before Covid. The 600 plus American billionaires have seen their wealth increase by over $1 trillion since Covid started. That is enough to give every man, woman, and child in America a $3,000 stimulus check.

As far as taxpayer money as bribes. look at there other end... large corporate enterprises are notorious for "negotiating" deals with local and state agencies to move their companies.. especially Texas.. it becomes a bidding war all to the corporate advantage not the taxpayers.

Worst JoKe Koyote impersonation ever......!

RC: "The average person can no longer afford to buy a house. So what is the cause? "

Let's think about that for a second.

There's certainly a lot of land in California, although the very best parts are already inhabited.

What would make the price of new home construction go up (which in turn drives up existing house prices)? Some combination of labor rates, materials cost, state requirements for construction (ie. 'code'), permits and taxes, cost of borrowing. Labor rates are driven down by mass immigration from the Third World at the cost of citizens ($$ down). Materials cost is driven by offshoring ($$ down) and scarcity ($$ up). Building code in CA can be crazy, Lord knows what the additional cost of solar, fire suppression, etc. is ($$ up). Permits/taxes are pure governmentonium ($$ up). Cost of borrowing is artificially suppressed by government ($$ up).

I guess the obvious solution is more offshoring and to import more underpaid labor from Latin America. Of course, they'll need houses too. Oh dear.

RC: "The 600 plus American billionaires have seen their wealth increase by over $1 trillion since Covid started."

Imagine how many of the billionaires are Progressives. Bezos. All of the digital monopolies. One of the great ironies of my life is that the Republicans became the party of the working class and the Democrats became the party of big business. (just look at a Nike or P&G ad nowadays). I guess that RXCross has to take a break from fellating Zuckerberg and Dorsey before stopping by here to feed us a bit of that ol' corporate wisdom.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo lifted restrictions on U.S.-Taiwan relations last week, a move that the CCP has criticized. And news that U.N. Ambassador Kelly Craft planned to visit the region prompted a statement last week accusing the U.S. of "a crazy provocation."

But former Sen. Barbara Boxer, a Democrat who held Vice President-elect Kamala Harris’ California seat for 24 years, briefly registered as a foreign agent for a Chinese surveillance company. After facing mounting backlash, she announced on Twitter Tuesday that she was reversing that decision."

The FBI was on the verge of finally arresting 10 members of an undercover network of “illegals,” Russian sleeper agents who had spent decades embedding themselves in American society, but senior officials wanted to salvage the administration’s ongoing diplomatic efforts to reset relations with Moscow. The White House was concerned the arrests would undermine Moscow’s help in pushing Tehran to the negotiating table, and its cooperation on other major international issues.

ROFLMAO. Principles before personalities, Madam Speaker.

‘Pence Uses Pelosi’s Own Words Against Her As He Explains Why He Won’t Invoke 25th Amendment’

“As you know full well, the 25th Amendment was designed to address Presidential incapacity or disability,” Pence continued. “Just a few months ago, when you introduced legislation to create a 25th Amendment Commission, you said, ‘”[a] President’s fitness for office must be determined by science and facts.’ You said then that we must be ‘[v]ery respectful of not making a judgment on the basis of a comment or behavior that we don’t like, but based on a medical decision.’ Madam Speaker, you were right. Under our Constitution, the 25th Amendment is not a means of punishment or usurpation. Invoking the 25th Amendment in such a manner would set a terrible precedent.”

Pence noted that Bible says that “for everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven … a time to heal … and a time to build up” and that now is that time for America. Pence invited Pelosi to help unite and heal the country, which was a theme of Democrat Joe Biden’s presidential campaign.

“I urge you and every member of Congress to avoid actions that would further divide and inflame the passions of the moment,” the letter concluded. “Work with us to lower the temperature and unite our country as we prepare to inaugurate President-elect Joe Biden as the next President of the United States. I pledge to you that I will continue to do my part to work in good faith with the incoming administration to ensure an orderly transition of power. So help me God.”

https://www.dailywire.com/news/pence-uses-pelosis-own-words-against-her-as-he-explains-why-he-wont-invoke-25th-amendment

If there is one person out there that believes for a nanosecond that the Left wants healing and uniting of this country, then you are the dumbest person on Earth. They Left wants no part of healing or breaking bread. That want vengeance. The want to totally inflict as much pain as possible on anyone who has been marked as a Trump supporter. They want those lives destroyed.
Winning the election is not what it’s all about to them. No, it’s just the beginning of The Purge. Their hardened hearts, poisoned minds, shipwrecked conscious, and theIr hastily drawn up ever expanding Enemies Lists lay testament to the fact their blind hatred and rage is but the first step which knows no bounds or time. This will go on for years. They have zero desire for healing, not to mention co-exist in harmony. Unity? If you swallow that big fat Whooper, then you are naive to the nature of the Beast. Never underestimate the depths to which their soulless appetites sink to.

Progressivism and the US Constitution are incompatible. Cannot co-exist. Impossible. No cohabitation.

Go ahead, tell us again how Biden will heal the country. His latest proposal for disturbing the vaccine is simple. All people will get the vaccine according to the blue checkboxes and white males go directly to the end of the line...on purpose. Lowest priority. I feel the healing love coming your way, you straight white folks who were born male. It’s called institutional racism and they hold the keys to the asylum. CUYT.

This certainly reminds me of that part in Animal Farm where the pigs got drunk. Like drunken pigs squealing about healing our nation.

We (the Pic Six) have already covered Uganda, but it is worth touching on again

SHAPES OF THINGS (7)
I missed David Marcus’s useful New York Post column “The threats and violence Twitter won’t police.” As we have noted, Amazon, Apple, and Google acted in concert to shut Parler down “supposedly because it hosts calls for violence,” as Marcus puts it, “but a simple search of Twitter shows that it regularly allows such calls itself.” For example:

Twitter hosts a #KillTrump hashtag. In all of the glorious English language there is no clearer, plainer, or shorter way to call for violence than the word kill followed by someone’s name. But there it is. One of these tweets reads “#ArrestTrump not enough #KillTrump.” And this isn’t new, back in June the hashtag #AssassinateTrump was bouncing around the website with gems like “Someone take this clown out NOW.” That tweet is still up.

For a few more examples:

[T]he Ayatollah Khamenei tweeted this in November, “. . . Palestine will be free, while the fake Zionist regime will perish. There’s no doubt about this.” So encouraging a completely legal challenge to election results gets our President banned, but the leader of Iran’s brutal state threatening to wipe out Israel is no problem at all.

There is a Twitter account that calls itself “Pigs In A Blanket, Fry Em Like Bacon,” a call to kill police that is also found in myriad tweets. There is currently a tweet up from the day of the Capitol riots that reads “I hope the Trumpers out there all die of Covid. When Congressman elect Luke Letlow did die with Covid there were tweets celebrating or calling it justice.

Antifa, which engaged in riots all summer in Portland has several Twitter accounts that they use to organize. In July a left wing Portland journalist tweeted during a riot, “Heads up all, it looks like Andy Ngo is here.” Author and Antifa critic Ngo has been physically assaulted by the group. Clearly she knew she was putting him danger.

The point is that Twitter is a cesspool of threats of violence, but takes little notice unless they come from conservative voices that threaten their power and their bottom line. This idea that Twitter is acting in the interest of the community or promoting healthy discourse with its censorship is absurd. Twitter acts in one and only entity’s interests: Its own.

We cannot but be moved by Twitter’s concern about the free speech rights of its consumers in Uganda (via Tristan Justice/Federalist):

“Vladimir Putin has used the FSB’s aura of efficiency and brutality to threaten regime opponents with kompromat, exile, poisoning, or a bullet to the head. The Aug. 20 botched assassination of opposition leader Aleksei Navalny and the embarrassing unraveling of the Kremlin’s narrative thereafter have turned the FSB into a laughingstock as memes belittling Putin and his FSB circulate on social media“

I like the idea of the poison underpants, although I suppose a Nagant would be more traditional. You know, the Selous Scouts used to be up to shenanigans like that. Their Freedom Fighter opponents would commonly steal clothes after they tortured and killed the store keepers or farmers. Nature is red in tooth and claw I guess.

re: Biden's upcoming healing process.

I'm going to guess that'll happen after all possible gains are made. There's something of a digital coup going on right now, and the Blue Mob has a bit of blood lust going on right now. It's fairly easy to guess the next few Blue moves, the unknown (or the unknown unknown) will be the inevitable countermoves.

An interesting take would be for Atlas and His Deplorables to simply shrug. No need for F250s with flags roaring around or trucker strikes, simply quit buying anything you don't need or buy it used. Let the spotters bear the weight on the bar. I suspect that plumbers and mechanical engineers will do better than non-profit CEOs and corporate diversity officers. Who can hold their breath the longest? We could stand to shrink the consumer part of the economy in any case. Enlarge the cash economy, improve self-sufficiency, starve the beast.

Another “Duh, tell us something we don’t already know” article. Readers Digest Version

‘Dems want to bring down anyone who ever backed Trump: Goodwin‘

-“In December of 2019, President Trump tweeted a picture of himself bracketed by an unpunctuated caption.
“In reality they’re not after me” it read. “They’re after you I’m just in the way.”
——-

“The first time around, Dems used impeachment as a campaign strategy to defeat Trump in 2020. They are now using impeachment to try to keep him out of the 2024 race, which would happen under a Senate conviction because he would be barred from ever again holding public office.

If that were all, the revenge agenda would be loathsome enough. But Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and their co-conspirators in Big Media and Big Tech are proving Trump was right when he said his supporters were the ultimate target. Let us the count the examples in just the last few days.

Start with the calls from leading Dems for GOP Senators Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz to resign for objecting to the Electoral College results, which amounts to an attempt to decapitate potential heirs to the Trump movement. Hawley and Cruz, forceful and articulate conservatives, essentially did what various Democrats did over the years when Republicans were elected president, yet they are being labeled criminals and traitors as accusers equate their votes with supporting the riot.

Democrats blowing House control right off the bat with Trump vendetta: Goodwin
Joe Biden, who keeps insisting he wants to unite the country, even accused Hawley and Cruz of spreading the “big lie.” To make sure his point was clear, Biden referred to Hitler’s propagandist, Joseph Goebbels.

Imagine that — the next president says two senators who oppose him are acting like Nazis. Apparently the unity agenda will come only after all dissenters are driven from office.

Bonus!

Unfortunately, the question is not whether a far-left government will follow suit. The only question is how long will it take before saying something the ruling class doesn’t want to hear is a crime?

Tone-deaf pictures

Reader Harold Theurer is having a flashback. Noting the unflattering photo of Mayor de Blasio and Chirlane McCray dancing in a nearly-deserted Times Square on New Year’s Eve, Theurer asks: “Isn’t this picture the equivalent of the Chris Christie beach chair photo?”

Touché!
———
Vaccination at a crawl

From a City Hall press release: “Mayor de Blasio today announced that Citi Field will become a 24/7 mega vaccination site. Operated by the NYC Health + Hospitals Test & Trace Corps, the site is currently slated to launch the week of January 25th.”

So it isn’t “slated to launch” for nearly two weeks. According to its stats, the city administered about 240,000 vaccines, a piddling average of about 8,300 per day.

At this rate, it will take far longer to give a shot to every New Yorker than the nine months it took to develop the vaccine.

paul emery

FYI

The Editors of the nation's oldest conservative magazine The National Review declared in an editorial today that there is "no doubt that Donald Trump has committed an impeachable offense."

quotes from the editorial:

"Some Republicans in the House, most notably the No. 3 Republican, the impressive Liz Cheney, are supporting it. According to press reports, Mitch McConnell is pleased at the prospect of impeachment. If he were to come out in favor of conviction, it'd be a seismic event that would potentially bring a Senate conviction within reach."


"People of good will can disagree about the best response to the last two months and especially last week, but about one thing there can be no question — it's the recklessness and selfishness of one man that brought us to this place," Also they write:

President Trump "urged a crowd to march on the U.S. Capitol and pressure his vice president and Congress to abuse their authority" to overturn a free and fair election that Joe Biden clearly won.

As the mob breached the Capitol, Trump failed to forthrightly tell the rioters to stop, The Editors write, and the violence that ensued was the culmination of Trump's "ceaseless campaign of misinformation meant to delegitimize an American election."

They are wrong too

Please read this article about incitement. The House of Representatives just impeached the president for lawful speech protected by the first amendment. Not a good look for the communist party aka Democrats.

Scott O

Paul 12:43 - Paul now sides with the never-Trumpers at NR. What a surprise.
"President Trump "urged a crowd to march on the U.S. Capitol and pressure his vice president and Congress to abuse their authority" to overturn a free and fair election that Joe Biden clearly won."
None of that is illegal or violent.
As to the election being 'free and fair' - that is their opinion.
Trump never instructed anyone to do anything illegal or violent.
Unlike many Dems in the last year who did.

Bill Tozer

Silly Paul. You know darned well that the Dems need no excuse to impeach Trump. They don’t need a stinkin’ reason. They had it baked in the cake before Trump took office and were openly advocating for it. No need to hide behind some editorial. Not needed in the least. You don’t even need to quote Republican Icon William Kristol or the Lincoln Project. Or even Lisa Murkowski of Alaska.

What you are seeing is the normal finger pointing after the loss of the Senate and the Oval Office. Things will settle down in a couple of months. It happened to both parties after the very recent election disappointment. Look at the finger pointing within the Dem party after their congressional disappointment in November. Flipping districts to Red in Blue Blue CA Dreamin’ was not even on the table so they blame AOC and Medicaid for All and Defund the Police and day of birth abortions, if not infanticide and their whole platform. The Squad fired back that they were re-elected in comfortable fashion and perhaps the losers would have not lost their seats if they followed the Squad’s blueprint, lol.

As far as the National Review, they started souring on Trump’s chances after the end of November and were saying, “give it up, Donald. Look at the calendar. You haven’t make your case for Stop the Steal and there is no time left. Many other conservative publications and voices were staying the same thing by mid-December. Just one clear case of an indisputable smoking gun (akin to a bank video of an unmasked bandit sticking up a teller or a tape of some dude knocking off a liquor store with a sawed off shogun, Terminator style) would have changed the entire narrative. But, time ran out.

There are many opportunists that are and will take advantage of this to attempt to spit the old GOP into two camps. One camp is those who believe in Trumpism, and the other camp who want to go back to a Jeb Bush message (and person) served up from the old GOP by the Bush holdovers. Or, to put it another way, the Trumpism camp are not Republicans per se; they are Constitutionalists. More to the libertarian bent of traditional ‘conservative’ values ‘ of the role of Big Bro in our lives.....more of a don’t tread on me Jeffersonian liberal. Civil liberties defenders. The individual is the one who charts his own future. You do your thing, I do mine. Let it all hang out, but pressure me to condone it. Tolerate? Yes!, unless you sport a man-bun, outside the food prep industry. Stay in your own lane and I will stay in mine. “If your weren’t so busy minding other people’s business, you wouldn’t be minding mine.”

Anyway, to the main point, the Leftinistas of today don’t need to follow no stinkin’ rules (save Rules for Radicals) to impeach Trump. It’s all emotion based and you can’t argue with feelings. “Insurrection against The Government” is a good one. Good as any excuse.

The Executive Branch declares war on the Legislative Branch! Seems to me Chuckie Schummer and the Democrat Senators where threatening the Judicial Branch not that too long ago in clear threatening unambiguous language. You better rule this way! We are watching you, oh Independent Court. We are watching you and we will never forget! Dem Senators declare war on Supreme Court!! Spare me. Go quickly Judas and do your dastardly thing.

The RINOS sure came out of the closet. Seems they can't wait to get back to the screwing of America.. You know,, as it was before Trump got elected. With Trump they actually had to do something. now with both the LIBS and Repubs,, It back to making promises they have no intention of keeping. Well,,, with the exception of raising taxes, killing the job producing pipe lines, and things of the sort... Oh yessss. "tear down that wall!" The illegals need in.

Daily Quotes

Insight: “Those who seek absolute power, even though they seek it to do what they regard as good, are simply demanding the right to enforce their own version of heaven on earth, and let me remind you they are the very ones who always create the most hellish tyranny.” —Barry Goldwater (1909-1998)

Friendly fire: “We understand the desire to permanently suspend [Trump] now, but it should concern everyone when companies like Facebook and Twitter wield the unchecked power to remove people from platforms that have become indispensable for the speech of billions — especially when political realities make those decisions easier.” —ACLU senior legislative counsel Kate Ruane

For the record: “If Trump was the foremost offender, Twitter hasn’t done us any favors in this period of our national life. It has fed moral panics and enabled cancellation mobs. It has exposed journalists who once made a pretense of objectivity as rank partisans. It has enticed once serious people into crowd-pleasing clownishness. It has made politicians dumber and cruder. It has distorted political reality for people across the spectrum. It, in short, has helped derange our politics, with the former Tweeter-in-Chief leading the way.” —Rich Lowry

Observations: “Censorship, wokeness, political correctness, it all points in one direction — authoritarianism, cloaked as moral righteousness. It’s similar to what we’re seeing at Twitter, and Facebook, and Apple, and on too many university campuses. This is not who we are, as Americans.” —Secretary of State Mike Pompeo

Tone-deaf: “We simply cannot stay closed until the vaccine hits critical mass. The cost is too high. We will have nothing left to open. We must reopen the economy, but we must do it smartly and safely.” —Governor Andrew “Trashing Vaccines” Cuomo now that the election is over

Double standards: “Ahead of the Ugandan election, we’re hearing reports that Internet service providers are being ordered to block social media and messaging apps. We strongly condemn internet shutdowns – they are hugely harmful, violate basic human rights and the principles of the #OpenInternet. Access to information and freedom of expression, including the public conversation on Twitter, is never more important than during democratic processes, particularly elections.” —Twitter Public Policy notice

Alpha jackass: “We go for all the Republican voters and Homeland Security will take their children away. … We’ll put them into the reeducation camps. Enlightenment camps. They’re nice. They have Sesame Street characters in the classrooms, and they watch PBS all day. Americans are so f—king dumb. You know, most people are dumb. It’s good to live in a place [Washington, DC] where people are educated and know stuff. Could you imagine if you lived in one of these other towns or cities where everybody’s just stupid? … What’s great is that COVID is spiking in all the red states right now. So that’s great … a lot of them [red state voters] are sick and dying.” —now ex-PBS attorney Michael Beller

The BIG Lie: “I also intend to see that those members of Congress who abetted [Trump]; those members of Congress who had groups coming through the capitol that I saw on Jan. 5 for reconnaissance for the next day; those members of Congress who incited the violent crowd; those members of Congress that attempted to help our president undermine our democracy — I’m going see that they’re held accountable.” —Rep. Mikie Sherrill

Non compos mentis: “Southern states are not red states. They are suppressed states. Which means the only way that our country’s going to heal is through the actual liberation of southern states, the actual liberation of the poor, the actual liberation of working people from economic, social, and racial oppression. That’s the only way.” —AOC

And last… “Banning offensive speech encourages radicals in their extremism. We no longer talk to each other. Too many read and listen only to what supports their point of view and demeans people who believe differently. This is unhealthy for a free society.” —Cal Thomas

Both of you were bragging about trumps job approval polls but the truth is he's down 18.5 in RCP's job approval averages. That number is the worst numbers he's had since Dec 12 2017 when he was down 20.6, his all time low. On election day he was only down 6.5. Todays numbers area a drop of over 12 points since the election Here's a link to confirm my numbers.

on this note: "Does free speech Barry mean the freedom to lie?"

Really, that's a big complicated question. Also worth grinding through. The internet makes it yet more complex. The law vs. reality on the ground even more so. Generally, I'd say 'yes' (including sedition), but there are obviously exceptions like provable slander/libel, plus the role of government, the whole business of common carriers, etc. I could stand to know more about it.
