You mean scandals like getting impeached for asking the newly elected Ukrainian leader to investigate whether there was corruption involved in Biden's demand to fire a prosecutor? Hunter's actions do matter, because he received large emoluments from the person being investigated and set up a meeting with his VP father on behalf of the person being investigated. We didn't know it at the time, but the entire Democrat establishment tried to impeach Trump on discovering what we now know to be true. We also know that the Russiagate "scandal" was created entirely from whole cloth by the Hillary Clinton campaign, that the Russian government informed the CIA of this, and that the CIA apprised the FBI and the White House of this; yet, the FBI still used the Hillary Clinton dossier to defraud the FISA courts so that they could use America's national security spy apparatus to gain political intel on Trump.

Stormy Daniels? No crime committed. He nailed a porn star while his wife was pregnant back in 2006. So what? Pussygate? No crime committed. Just talking bullshit. Weinsteingate? Never heard of it. Russia, ibid. Everyone knows it was a Democrat party dirty trick that used federal government operations to make it look real. Covidgate? No such thing.
B0ycey wrote:Biden is a BS candidate that in any other election wouldn't stand a chance of winning.
Biden has lost his marbles. He just bragged about having the largest and most inclusive voter fraud ring in US history, as if being inclusive when committing voter fraud somehow made voter fraud virtuous. As Trump said, "He's shot folks. He's gonzo!" Biden is toast.
B0ycey wrote:But Trump is so damn divisive that next month even he will win by a landslide despite his pitfalls. And in this election even Hillary would win big against Trump I might add.
You people watch too much TV. I just took a road trip from the Bay Area to Tahoe--Looking at property on the Nevada side, as I'm tired of paying taxes to the State of California. I took the scenic route up the river until I hit Sacramento, then up HWY 50. Once you get out of the Bay Area in California, you see Trump flags. Not just signs. There are Trump flags on boats. There are Trump flags on pick up trucks. There are Trump flags flying alongside houses. The enthusiasm for Trump outside of urban media centers is impressive. The media is no more "inclusive" and embracing of "diversity" outside of the urban media centers than they were in 2016. It's as if they cannot see what is right in front of most Americans' eyes.

Indeed. While she's probably half dead due to alcoholism, she's still a better candidate than Biden. Yet, she garners absolutely no enthusiasm on the ground either.
B0ycey wrote:Because she didn't contest and Biden did
He hasn't contested yet. They are planning a massive voter fraud operation in Pennsylvania. There are a few hundred thousand random ballots out there, basically as many as Trump won by in 2016 which they will return unsigned after the election to try to tip it to Biden.
B0ycey wrote:Maybe Sanders is the exception but he could never get the candidacy whilst Democrats have super delegates.
If Warren hadn't run, Sanders would have beaten everyone. Warren will never be president, but she served the party by spoiling Sander's candidacy. Biden came in fourth in Iowa, fifth in New Hampshire and second in Nevada. He only got the nomination, because the party engineered Sander's demise and the withdraw of all the competitors to Biden. That's how bad the situation was for them.
Patrickov wrote:What I think is that Trumpers trying to emphasize how Biden and / or his son is complicit with totalitarian regimes is bullshit.
It's actually more pointed than that: it's as if to say, "Why are your jobs going overseas and illegal aliens pushing your wages down? Because the people running things in Washington are getting paid off through their family members (Hunter) or their charities (Clinton Foundation), which are basically bribes but making it harder to prosecute as bribes."
B0ycey wrote:But unfortunately people don't understand how the American political institution is actively against them and as such have voted against their self interests numerous times because propaganda is a major factor in the US and scandal and smear is the best tool for propaganda it seems.
Trump's victory shows that they do understand. They were just never able to get someone outside of the two parties at the top of the ticket. They got Reagan. Buchannan tried to run against Bush I, and ended up bringing him down. They tried to get Ross Perot and failed. Finally, they got Trump. A second Ronald Reagan of sorts.
B0ycey wrote:But in this election Trump has done such a bad job at president propaganda isn't going to cut it this time.
This isn't the sentiment in most of America. Look at the Trump rallies. Trump's job approval is back over 50%.
B0ycey wrote:Don't be one of these idiots that still think Trump has a chance in November please.
If Trump can shut down the illegal after election balloting, he will win. That's why getting Amy Coney Barret confirmed is essential, because Roberts is a Never Trumper.
B0ycey wrote:Although perhaps I rely more on polls to make my judgement then I should so I guess that I will reserve idiot until the 4th.
Since the Nixon administration, when was the last time a Republican was ahead in the polls before election day? Never. Yet we have Reagan with landslides, Bush I with a landslide then a defeat, Bush II with two elections--one without the popular vote, and Trump without the popular vote. That's six elections in which the polls were against the Republican and the Republican won anyway. The polls are more of a psychological warfare operation at this point than anything else.
