Why the Hunter Biden Story Makes No Difference | #58
At this particular moment, corporate news is flooding the public with the narrative that Joe Biden is slated to defeat Donald Trump by a landslide. Rewind to 2016: Joe's performance in major polls is, more or less, identical to Hillary Clinton's; we may have to endure four more years of orange man. In other news, the New York Post has published several articles nailing Hunter Biden to a cross and taking his father down with him, but does it even make a difference?
That One Time the Boogaloo Planned to Murder a Governor | #57
Sure, maybe the Boogaloo isn't "officially" the far right, but every time we hear about them, they're doing something ridiculous, so it's probably time to call a spade a spade. In other news, Trump is very far behind in the polls (further behind than he was 4 years ago at this time), but will it be another wild card experience? Also, the GOP plans to have Amy Coney Barrett, the new Associate Supreme Court Justice nominee, voted in before election day.
The Fly on Pence's Head Totally Won the VP Debate | #56
Whether you like Biden/Harris or Trump/Pence or neither (I like neither), we can all agree that the Vice Presidential debate between Kamala Harris and Mike Pence was far more civil and productive than the first debate. With that being said, the entire ordeal was essentially a contest to see who has more Republican endorsements and who loves fracking more. Luckily, a fly landed on Pence's head and unanimously won the debate. A Fly 2020.
Trump Gets COVID | #55
As Texas Governor Greg Abbott is blatantly suppressing the voices of his own constituents, and the Commission on Presidential Debates is considering changing the rules of future debates after the dumpster fire of an experience we all suffered through last time, Trump's campaign is giving the FEC hell for choosing one of Biden's former interns to host the next debate. Trump gets the coronavirus.
Joe Biden vs. Donald Trump: The First Presidential Debate | #54
Maybe in a parallel universe, the United States had a civil and productive debate, but not here. If only Donald Trump could shut the hell up...
Eugenics: We Wrote the Nazi Party Playbook | #53
Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party practiced Eugenics, killing millions of people in the process. However, what we aren't taught in schools is that they took their ideas from the United States, where this "science" has been practiced since the late 1800s. The allegations made by former Immigration and Customs Enforcement nurse Dawn Wooten, who says a doctor has performed mass hysterectomies on Hispanic women without their consent, are just a drop in the bucket compared to actual Supreme Court rulings that legalized the forced sterilization of minorities and tens of thousands of procedures that were subsequently performed throughout our history.
