Re: Wear the Mask, Forever

Re: Barr Calls it For Biden:

We all know that power corrupts and so does the promise of power. If there was a vulnerability in the system, it would not surprise me in the least if ruthless operators from both sides would try to take advantage of it. The point here is that Trump & Giuliani have been claiming that this had taken ...

Re: Aljazeera vs. Nas Daily

Thank you for the interesting overview.

I would guess that it will hasten the downfall of all of the ruling houses involved, including the Qatari one.

Re: New Zealand election

Greetings, I sympathize with New Zealand that the timing of their election occurred just upon the precipice of learning so much more about the CCP, its methods and the extent of its infiltration.

Re: Trump and Martin Luther King

I was on the fence about Trump being re-elected due to some of his handling of COVID and other issues. However, given this speech I now feel safe in declaring "12 more years!". MLK would have fully agreed with President Trump here. Progressivism is becoming the new racism. https://twitter.com/TeamT...
