But adults realize they’re responsible for their own actions.

Intelligent adults can understand the concept of divided responsibility. She’s responsible for her actions. Trump for his.

Trump doesn’t seem to realize that. Had he not incited this riot she would likely be alive, the police officer would likely be alive

Perhaps the offices of top government officials shouldn't be guarded by weak kneed keystone cops 

We don’t really go for the Berkut/GRU solution.

A unarmed white female protester was killed by the police.

Tragic. And Trump bears responsibility for all the lives lost including that of the police officer.

Impeach him again. No pardons. Time to put this dumpster fire of a presidency behind us and rebuild.

ironically, the first day we can truly start working on “making America great” again... is the day he’s out .

Why there are no "alleged, falsely claimed" or other similar adjectives MSM always attach to Trump's claims of massive fraud?

Ummm... That’s what the word “accusation” in “.who was re-elected despite accusations of massive fraud” is.

And there’s no dearth of evidence supporting that accusation against Lukashenko unlike Trump’s claims.

Posted in: GOP to let Trump fight election for weeks despite Biden's win See in context

In short, the outcome hasn't been decided yet and can still go either way.

not likely

The media don’t purport to decide. They report the results as shared by election officials. As they have in previous elections. As is their job.

oh, and Trump himself prematurely declared himself the winner... I guess that was reckless? Will Trump look the fool “if” Biden wins?

2020 Presidential elections “There is no electoral fraud in the United States.”

There is no EVIDENCE of electoral fraud in the United States

Judge Diamond: Are your observers in the counting room?

Trump lawyer: There's a non zero number of people in the room

Judge Diamond: I’m asking you as a member of the bar of this court: are people representing the Donald J Trump for president, representing the plaintiffs, in that room?the

Trump lawyer: Yes.

Judge Diamond: I'm sorry, then what's your problem?

Meh, okay. Have at it GOP. Knock yourselves out. So far we’ve seen all the allegations of fraud debunked and laughed out of court. Waste of Trump supporter donations.

McConnell and Republicans in Congress are so afraid of Trump 

Sums up the why. They’re afraid of Trump and don’t want to piss off Trump voters in Georgia ahead of the run offs.

The country deserves a free and fair election.

We had one. Freer than elections in say, Russia for instance...

Posted in: Nations long targeted by U.S. chide Trump’s claims of fraud See in context

Doe the evidence exist and where can we see it?

If there were any evidence we’d have seen it. There isn’t. This is just the standard gas-lighting that has become the hallmark of this presidency and Trump party. It’s a ploy to delegitimize the election so they can overturn the results some other way if needs be; throw out valid votes, get the PA Republican legislature to override the people’s vote and select electors for Trump.

All the so-called cases of fraud they come up with have been quickly and easily debunked.

To be clear - ZERO EVIDENCE OF FRAUD in the vote count

Posted in: Trump backers converge on vote centers in Michigan, Arizona See in context

stop the count.....of votes received after election day.

Because by now, everything received before the deadline should have been counted.

PA Rules say they can and, like it or not, PA gets to decide their rules. Not you. Not Trump.

And rules say they count legal ballots from eligible voters postmarked Nov 3 received up to 3 days after Election Day. Like some other states - Kentucky..

november 3rd isn’t a magical date that the counting needs to be done by.

i suspect you know this.

Posted in: U.S. says Russian hackers targeting state, local networks See in context

Since both the CCP and Russia would be happy with a corrup Biden presidency, that accusation is a bit of a contradiction in terms...

You mean rather than a corrupt and incompetent Trump presidency? Russia wins first of all by generating dissension and by delegitimizing our electoral process. They get the extra win by getting their preferred candidate, and there’s no mistake that’s it’s Trump. He’s the guy who is taking down the country in too many ways to count.

We knew from previous election cycles they were going to interfere again. If Trump really thought the Russians were going to support Biden he would’ve taken the measures he’s so far failed to. Says it all.

More evidence, not that any is needed, that this president will do nothing to protect our electoral process from foreign interference if it’s to his benefit.

Posted in: Trump and Biden clash on pandemic, trade personal jabs at final debate See in context

Trump supporters claim Trump won. Biden supporters the same for Biden. It’ll be subjective. Doesn’t really matter either way though. Did Trump do enough to peal away from Biden-decided or convince enough fence-sitters? Doesn’t look like it. Did Biden do so badly as to lose any? Doesn’t look like it.

So, whether Trump “won” the debate or not, he didn’t win.

Posted in: Trump nominates conservative Amy Coney Barrett for court See in context

Good. Trump missed the opportunity to split the Latino vote in Florida by picking Barrett instead of Lagoa.

Focus, focus, focus on the election now - don’t be distracted.

Win the presidency, take back the senate and then can pack the court, strip the federal courts of juridiction... always been constitutional but now also fair return.

The Manchurian candidate presidency can still be undone.

Posted in: Trump accepts nomination for second White House term; says 'No one will be safe in Biden's America' See in context

Speaking from the White House South Lawn despite criticism he was using the executive residence as a political prop,

That this is a almost a footnote perfectly illustrates how we grown to accept the egregious behavior of this president and administration. In any other time, Republican or Democrat, the outcry would have been deafening.

This truly is the true drip drip destruction of our norms and institutions. It may not have started with Trump but he sure as heck has put it into high gear.

Posted in: Amazon stops police using its face-recognition tech for one year See in context

This shouldn’t be about being anti-police. Shouldn’t be just the concern of groups concerned about it being used to target people based on race.

It should be about recognizing this is a powerful technology that could be used to great harm by whomever against whomever.

Not event the staunchest supporter of the police would want to allow them unrestricted use of any powerful technology - say wiretapping tech for instance.

I’m not sure the potential extra safety is worth the trade off in surrendering more of our privacy, or in running the risk of this technology being abused by tomorrow’s managers of the technology. Certainly not without a real discussion. What happens as these technologies becomes increasingly inteconnected? AI to facial recognition technologies to databases, to your phone’s gps info, to your Internet browsing data, to drone surveillance info ? Are we sure we will always trust those who will own the keys to these systems? You may be in the “safe group” today. Tomorrow?

No, not at all.

If you don’t want to understand there’s not much any of us can do

Why is it necessary to tear one side down to bring another side

Its not but this another long-winded strawman distraction of yours.

Fact are clear : the American experience is very different for a black man vs for a white man . If you’re black man you’re much more likely to be killed or hurt by the police.

We don’t have time and can’t for these cutesy ALM distractions anymore. You can part of the solution about to help or not

All Lives Matter.... where did you not understand the definition of "All".

I’m pretty clear on definition of “All”. But you seem to have had difficulty with a sentence and even paragraph long thought...

Maybe this will help. Let’s say there’s an oppressed Christian minority in a country with a different dominant religion. Let’s say every time these oppressed Christians react to some atrocity saying “we matter too”, the majority respond “we all matter” and then things continue merrily along the way they always have. That help.

All Lives Matter used to be perfectly fine to say. Now its some type of counter protest

I don’t see why it such a challenge for some to understand. Of course all lives matter. No one said they don’t. What we’re saying is that ALL lives don’t matter until black lives matter to all.

“All Lives Matter” has been and is used as a counter to minimize or dismiss the very real issues specific to, faced by African Americans
