Hello to you! How are things in MO especially with Lucas?

choicelady

an hour ago

Lucas is holding his own but last week’s debate performance was certainly a hit……efforts to undermine his campaign via numerous false charges grow……and Hawley is playing the “ignore him as inconsequential” mode and that has some power.

Choice…what is your take on the debate.

Hey hey!

The interview tonight was not stunning….no problems but little inspiration.

MurphTheSurf3

Murph – obviously the imagery wasn’t good, but Twitter analysts have gotten transcripts showing Biden SKUNKED Trump on all answers. I’ve been pushing: “Joe’s our Yoda, we’re his Jedi”, and it’s catching on. So he’s soft spoken and doesn’t handle bullies on short notice. So what? His RECORD is stellar, and today’s record-breaking stock market is proof.

I am increasingly angry at the unwillingness of popular media to hold Trump to same standards as they are applying to Biden.

MurphTheSurf3

an hour ago

Murph – not a problem. He was AMAZING in Wisconsin and at the 4th WH celebration! The problem isn’t Biden – it’s the media.

choicelady

an hour ago

Agreed – a convicted felon w fascist predictions, and we can’t burn his ass?

choicelady

an hour ago

Murph – Trump was offered a similar interview at ABC, he refused to be interviewed. So Biden had an interview that was fine but too many Dems want to throw Biden out by holding standards so high and have no standards about Trump to call on him to drop out.

AdLiban hour ago

I refused to watch the interview. I knew it would suck.

choicelady

an hour ago

The media do seem suspiciously unwilling to treat the candidates in similar fashion.

MurphTheSurf3

an hour ago

Look – this has been a 50 year march to fascism starting we Reagan. Ending the fairness doctrine on, it was PLANNED. And now we reap the whirlwind.

choicelady

an hour ago

I remember both IKE and Reagan in their last years, both younger than Biden. Others have similar memories.

MurphTheSurf3

an hour ago

Starting WITH Reagan…

Hey, TW!\

CL how are you

twilson117

PPO!!! How are you?

choicelady

an hour ago

Biden is looking weaker and more tired and the conversation among many in my circle is not about now but about a year from now….their concerns re. Biden are also expressed re. Trump but that conversation is not happening widely.

MurphTheSurf3

an hour ago

Hi all! Looking forward to seeing you soon.

TW – doing OK. Long week of doing CA ballot analyses that got screwed up from legislative ineptitude. But I’m done. Whew!

choicelady

an hour ago

Hello PPO and TW

MurphTheSurf3

an hour ago

packing right now.

pinkpantheroz

PPO – so sorry I can’t this year. I will miss you like crazy!

choicelady

Murph, Kamala is there to take the reins if anything happens.

pinkpantheroz

It is a feeding frenzy for many reasons. Here are what I think are a couple. The corporate owners of ALL MSM outlets are Republican and want Trump tax cuts. Many journalists feel they have power in this moment to push Biden off a cliff. The MSM wants the race to be competitive and are doing everything they can to outweigh a candidate having 34 criminal convictions and adjudicated a rapist by hammering down Biden and trying to hound him out of the race. Russian entities are turning armies of trolls against Biden to drown him in “resiegn” attacks because they want their candidate, Russian-owned Trump, in the WH.

AdLiban hour ago

Hey PO!

AdLiban hour ago

I have told those I often speak with is that it is. Biden vs. Trump…..which means that it is good vs. evil at its heart.

MurphTheSurf3

an hour ago

Hey TW!

AdLiban hour ago

Murph – totally agree on the good/evil dichotomy.

choicelady

an hour ago

PPO how you doing?

twilson117

an hour ago

The hysteria about Joe is 100% media hype

pinkpantheroz

an hour ago

Fine TW. Hope we can share a beer again soon

pinkpantheroz

AD…YOUR ANALYSIS…I agree. The forces pushing for a replacement.

MurphTheSurf3

an hour ago

Billionaires ought to think twice about becoming Putin oligarchs. Such folks tend to be defenestrated a lot if they peeve the dictator.

choicelady

an hour ago

NOBODY can replace now – not enough time, NO money. Stupid discussion.

choicelady

an hour ago

We may have to put up with this unrelenting attack on Biden as senile and needing to resign and give up the nom but my prediction is that when he gives his speech at the DNC convention, it will finally end this attack.

AdLiban hour ago

PPO – some folks on Twitter note the American public could not care less about the debate.

choicelady

an hour ago

I’m betting the US media will barely mention the rout of the RWNJs in Britain during the week. Or the Epstein files. Ot trump raping a 14 year old.

pinkpantheroz

an hour ago

I made a list of 10 things that will happen to the large majority of Mo. voterss if Trump wins and his plans move forward….a horrific list that still does not impress those I know.

MurphTheSurf3

an hour ago

PPO – I am over the MOON at the rout in GB!! I looked him up – he’s a damned decent person. Good instincts.

choicelady

an hour ago

Choice not many make reference to defenestration…toss another one out the window. Yeah!

MurphTheSurf3

an hour ago

PPO – Sad but true, agree that the MSM is knowingly and intentionally sidetracking reporting on Trump, Project 2025, and the defeat of the Tories by Labour in the UK. Trump called the MSM the enemy of the people and now, fearing he could win, they seem to be seeking to get in his good graces by actually becoming an enemy of the people.

AdLiban hour ago

Murph – is it “it can’t happen here” mentality? Over the weekend, my VERY anti=Trump SIL still insisted Trump and Project 2025 are not the same.

choicelady

an hour ago

Ad there is no doubt in my mind the MSM will be doing nothing by hit pieces on Biden. I didn’t watch the interview didn’t see the need.

twilson117

an hour ago

Who is the person who is not Ad, Choice, Pink, or Me….Logo with no name. Hello whoever you are!

MurphTheSurf3

an hour ago

Murph – I don’t see a lurker, but I know they are often present.

choicelady

an hour ago

Ah ….it was TW…

MurphTheSurf3

an hour ago

Well, Murph – TW is a good guy!

choicelady

an hour ago

CL – I think many MAGAs are just narrow-minded and ignorant so their lack of understanding the ramifications of Trump’s promised actions in the WH and how it will hurt them isn’t even comprehensible to them. They just know that Trump has given them permission to hate and he’s sworn to harm their “enemies”. That’s all they care about, their minds go no farther than that.

AdLiban hour ago

All, just check the Jobs report rate at 4.1% the slight increase will get played out but means nothing, 206,000 jobs. That’s good but at some point it’s going to cool down but we’ll have to wait and see.

My considered opinion of the last SCOTUS round is that it empowers the president LESS than they empowered themselves.

choicelady

an hour ago

As some of you might recall my roots are British and I am very pleased with the outcome in these elections….I point out again the value a parliamentary system where elections are not fixed dated events but rather responses to current conditions and trust in government.

MurphTheSurf3

an hour ago

CL inclined to agree with you regarding the SC.

twilson117

an hour ago

TW – level headed economic analysts say that’s true, slower growth, but that it’s HEALTHY. Will THAT be said?

choicelady

an hour ago

Murph – that’s a good point.

choicelady

an hour ago

Trump is saying he knows zip about P2025. Rubbish! He’s a micromanager of evil.

pinkpantheroz

an hour ago

PPO – several of his own staff are ON the Heritage committees drafting the plan.

choicelady

an hour ago

CL if we had reporting that was focused on the overall economy instead of trying to out due their competition in who can write the most daming story about Biden.

twilson117

an hour ago

TW – agreed.

choicelady

an hour ago

Murph, note the smooth-ish handover of power the minute the UK results were listed. No attempted coup.

pinkpantheroz

an hour ago

WTF is wrong with journalists in America today?

choicelady

an hour ago

Just in case you missed this earlier posting…. My circle of informed folks is looking at this list for a replacement if necessary. VP Kamala Harris Mi Gov Gretchn Whitmer CA Gov Gavin Newsom Tr. Sec. Pete Buttigieg Penn Gov Josh Shapiro Il Gov. JB Pritzker Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear Maryland Governor Wes Moore Senators Amy Klobuchar and Cory Booker Georgia Senator Raphael Warnock Michelle Obama

MurphTheSurf3

an hour ago

Murph – pretty much the logical group. NOBODY is going to replace Joe.

choicelady

an hour ago

My biggest concern is not with Biden’s competency but with his aura…..he just seems listless and tired.

MurphTheSurf3

an hour ago

CL I wished I knew, but it seems they are bending over backward to try and show they’re not playing favorites when they are in not really reporting on Trump’s gaffs and he has made plenty of them.
