Now the hurricane is 180 mph and 22 foot storm surge. Pretty severe, bigger than any I recall. Had photos from scrapbook of huge one in the 60s. The Derecho through central Iowa hit 140 mph, sustained for 3/4 to 1 hr. The devastation in that area is according to storm chaser utility crews both of US and Canada, by far the worst they had ever seen. Towns aren't recognizable. Many here plant tree wind breaks, and have hundreds of just gone tree lines. Imagine that clean up, 100 trees per property. I guess it doesn't much matter what your opinion is about weather and man's effect. It's just such a moot point. We run ships across the arctic and compete in aggressive nationalist by multiple even far off regimes to grab natural resources in the thawed territory. I was kinda hoping this stay and shelter would mean we had some reduction in thermal energy production. But like a over cooked egg on the stove, once the thermal extreme has been passed, it is going to take a ridiculously long time to come back to thermal equilibrium. The storm coming by Fort Campbell it looks like. You might get some effects too. At least you have hours to ready yourself.

The storms are rough, but I'm more concerned with the anarchy and possible civil war that's bound to come if the current "logic" of both "sides" continues. What's going on in Kenosha is like a train wreck of bad choices.

why did we learn nothing from MLK. why are voters being squeezed and denied right to vote? This week our state has repeatedly acted to block absentee ballot drop boxes, mailings (secretary of state as well as county auditors) to register for absentee. And 3 lawsuits were filed to disalllow/ deny voter registrations in 3 heavily weighted suburban female counties of college education. Double lawsuirmts, one by Trump, one by RNC. The ouroiseful dwconstructiin of the Post Office isnymt about privitazation or ineptness, its svout gumming ypnthecgesrsxdo badly, votes cmcsnnot possibly be counted in Bidens favor. Trump had head of Fed Ex and UPS in oval office 4 wks ago to strategize this insider attack. Look up any piint I just sumnarized.

Well, some voters don't trust a change to mailing ballots. The typical voting system is supposed to be overseen by "both sides", there are many checks and balances that are supposed to lessen the odds of cheating. I think mailing ballots adds a risk that hasn't been thought of before._____Basically, there is "the way we've done things before" side (which may or my not be right, but was done democratically), and there is the "WE WANT CHANGE" side (which are pulling down statues, burning buildings, and shouting down opposing views).

A lot of the violenve isn't directly the protesters, especially pacific N.W. where white supremascists have bonded with anarchists. That fact is blindklly discarded in attrubuting everything to black lives matter. I looked,at the new Time mag. cover,. Pretty sad. Black mom clutching blank cutout baby, and 35 names printed around the front cover edge. Where is the spoken word of compassion or a hint of regret by this administration? Does anyone on the right have the will to cope with the white on black aggression by police? I've had young cop in my town screaming his lungs out at me to force compliance and submission. All I was doing waa trying to see past his blinding bright headlights tight behind me while I waited for light to turn green. I'm a worker, and was beginning a long double of snow plow contract on city sites in our downtown when that happened. The other officer had to tell him to STFU. And a black cop in my town murdered a white nasty mom who was beating on her man repeatedly, had a no contct order which she,was violating outside the house they formerly shared. He got off on account of a slip and mis fire blamed on snow and slick leather shoes. Why did he need a gun drawn? He did not need a reaction, he needed to call for backup and drag her sorry ass to jail. The cops covered up, the city covered up, they suppressed the body cam. The state A.G. covered up. It ultimately cost our city milllions to settle, big national story. Our streets destroy your car, but we can pay out millions for imbeciles. Nope, we have no problem, just angry illegal mobs whining about nothing.

White on black aggression? Sure there is some, but there is WAY, WAY more black on black aggression. Look at the stats. I'm against all murders, no matter the color of participants. And what about the lies that start some of these protests, like Ferguson? Remember the moto of that protest? Read the court testimonies, see if that lines up with what the media said. Same with the 17 year old boy that was getting chased and kicked, hit with a skateboard...until he defended himself with a gun. And the media falsely reported on that fact....I know the Washington Post and NPR were wrong. Blatantly wrong. That cannot be an accident. And that obviously biased media is what bothers me the most.

I don't know the Tennessee protest story, but why are we allowing legislators to barr protests on public courthouse lands? Doesn't that bother you, going directly against the 2nd amendment? TN is a lot like SC in the race issue. I would not want to grow up in Memphis, or East Nashville. No doubt, you can find sin and fault in the black community, and then you ask why we allow for profit prisons run by white owners to continue the circle of violence and perpetuated poverty. We have to deal with this. 35 slain in a couple years is insane. I blame the lax gun culture and that shouldn't be allowed to foster. There is no end point when everyone arm to the T's and develops the kind of short fused hostility that Covid has caused. Crap is going to happen, and life is bound to be hard. We shouldn't be able to grab a gun and cope with the frustration in a hot moment. But that is what the black on black crime is all about. Control the street, control the money, and circumvent the structure of society. And where did they learn that? It was a white controlled street before them, and it was called the mafia.

Do you notice the strong bias in the media reports? Like Nickolas Sandmann who was vilified for simply standing still?? He beat the liars at CNN. How about the lies about Kyle Rittenhouse "shooting into a crowd" (Washington post words) when he was actually being chased by a mob, kicked in the head, then smashed near the head with a skateboard before shooting two attackers? How about the lies from Ferguson about "hands up", leading to criminals looting and burning, yet court testimony revealed the "nice young man" was actually attacking a cop after he'd attacked a store owner?
08/29/2020 23:34

Thanks to video cameras just about everywhere, the lies of the media are easy to expose. Please see this link for a video which gives a summary of the Kyle Rittenhouse shooting stuff. The media won't give out this many puzzle pieces, 'cause the media doesn't want us to have the whole picture of BLM/anarchist aggressions.

reporters, I think iteas Oregon, were being atracked by protestors, assume leftys ratger than antifa, but reason was they did not want faces idrntified. Bow why would the independent press be a threat to a message they want to get out? But the,faxt is, peess,worldwide are ubser trenebdous threat of life by totakitarian forces who wish to deny the light from reaching their evil methods. Xi in Chiba abd the maneuvers, stste inplant fliwibg into HongKong by thectens,of thousands so they can alter rhe demographics of protestors versus dokt liyslusts is just one prong of a multi prong campaign to swuash absokute totslitsrisn conteol of at least half a dozen peoples (sects) in those regions. There are now so mabyvcamps being built, and peoole held (300,000) that we are exceeding all records except WWII Nazi holding camps. The sad truth is Trump and his jacked up adrenaline livibgvthrongs are vrratibg this,fear of isebtification because feds, and some 60000 border patrol army are grabbing, fibger printing and tracking who the agitators are, to define their opponent. Now go read Bradbury,, Orwell, and tell me where they (militant state/ private army) got this roadmap? We are so close to being Russia right now, ubder this,totalitarian oligarch, it is just scary. Every day, all day long, he uses,KGB disinformation scripts and twists the perps with the good guys standing up for truth and our founding fathers. No general in our military respect this tyrant. You cannot be a leader when you are twisting and breaking every law in the books daily and hourly. If any of this smelks to you, thdn ask why we must ddnyvVongress of sevurity broefibgs when WE KNOW RUSSIA IS MANIPULSTING OUR EVENTS, POLLS, AND PRESIDENTIAL INFLUENCE to sway the outcome. Only then does the master plan get revealed, as we finish criminalizing NATO the good guys who are ourxsworn allies in defending freedom, and let Putin storm Europe, gain total control of most of the RISK game board he has been playing like a genius. Trump and your like who worship him are giving away democratic freedom through a deep shell game strategy you all fail to see through. He had one mastery, confusion and conquer via con artist skills. Master of business -hardly. Master of the CON, he learned from the best and surrounded himself with like con artists, who are now mostly indicted and sentenced. All this will be revealed if he succeds in cheating the election through about 6 stratrgies.

Security Council is refusing (Trump is ordering this coverup)to tell Congress security updates on Russia infiltration of our 2020 election. They will operate at the local level and create street violence as well, its a common practice. Ukraine, Belarus, US anywhere they need to sway opinion and divide peoples to achieve their expansionist goals. This administration is deeply infected with Russia, and no one will pay attention to the facts. Its all about invalidating our intelligence services, crushing hiring, and riggin' judicial to keep a dangerous administration achieving their narrow view of "democracy" which is a real stretch for what is actually going on. Your state has a love relationship with Russia and it goes right to McConnel with a massive Russian business enterprise established there. So absolutely, we are watching the destruction of civil protest and a focused purposeful incitement of a segment of our native born peoples to join in this conflict, which is now involving thrown objects, molotov cocktails and sadly weapons. I don't see anything good coming from this. The recent backlash against BLM is a sign that many of the black population are also not supporting departing from the teachings and practices of MLK. Maybe I am reading that wrong, but there is definitely a resistance by the majority of American's to this unrest that is fomenting in lawlessness, and don't believe for one second the propaganda that Biden Harris condone that one iota. NO FLIPPIN WAY. Its got to stop, and normal civil discussion has to start. I once was in Portland once, bought fuel. The moron pumping the gas touched my paint. You can pry the fuel nozzle from my cold dead hands, you flippin socialists. You will never pump my gas again.

Do you understand that bias exists? Here is another example, from a USA Today article. I quote "Poe told USA TODAY Wednesday that a white woman appeared to purposefully swap her American flag face mask for a Blue Lives Matter mask once realizing her seat assignment was next to Poe, a Black woman. Blue Lives Matter supports police officers and is a counter movement to Black Lives Matter, which aims to eradicate white supremacy and has organized nationwide protests in response to police violence against Black people."

Please remember, this site nearly died because of political crap. We don't really want to come here to get stressed. There is some truth I am sure, and there some truth in the Russia ties to the President, I am equally sure. That should bother a lot of you. We need financial disclosure to tie the threads together and track the lies which are based around his financial lies, and binding relationships to Russia. But either way, you cannot keep this stuff hidden. It has a way of surfacing just like flotsam. You should be looking at the recent disclosures by NSC council which tie Trump to Ukraine Spy.

Ironic the ties to Russia are far easier to prove on Biden's side than Trump, but they keep trying, it seems like they keep accusing him of what they're guilty of. But realistically you could go back and forth on this for days, cite articles, bring in experts, and ultimately it will boil down to providence, and ours and our leaders willingness to seek it. Living in western Oregon and watching Bibles being burned on the streets of Portland is a perfect example. Whatever you think you know about what's going on here, I guarantee you its worse. Around here its pretty common knowledge the city of Portland has had a pretty dark side for a long time. I have known people that moved here from back east thinking it was the American dream and turned right back around in months. I saw the trailer for the new Caviziel movie last night called Infidel. I can't wait to see it. PS, I have been on CP since the early 2000's, what you believe or don't believe does not offend me, I'm a grown up and I assume you guys are too.

Do you care to comment on it? (I too am grown up enough to discuss things, and I very much want perspectives of people who live far away from me.)

Its so bad its unreal, not just for what they changed, but for what they left out. Like where was he an EMT, who did he ever work for? And why were incredibly important specific details of the situation, and the other events that night left out? A lot of these protests and similar remind of kids we used to see in the mall or other public places throwing fits over something stupid while their parents desperately tried to placate them. My wife and I would turn to each other and say " In 20 years that's going to be a huge problem...for a lot more people than just those parents" And here we are. Woe to those who call good evil and evil good. How are things in KY? It seems like you guys are more in the headlines now, for all the wrong reasons.

XLR8R, I'm glad you can see through the media's lies. As for KY, we're in the "news", so consider the source. The leftist junk from bigger cities has come home to little old Paducah KY, with a "pride parade" and ABC people "welcoming center". There was a "protest" months ago where people blocked traffic and broke some windows at the mall, but I think there were arrests. I think if ANTIFA commies posing as BLM tried to burn and loot around this area, there would be abotu 1000 Kyle Rittenhouses keeping that under control. I think many, many people are fed up with the lies of the media and leftist leaders and aren't gonna take much more.

not blind. my city covered up the police shooting almost 6 years ago before any of the slain BLM events had played out. You want truth? When tax dollars and official department mandate police body cams, and then they are employed 100% as a insider tool to back the illegal out of protocol procedures or errors of the P.D. you have a totalitarian police state. When I go about my many many jobs, have to watch getting pulled over at after 11 PM hours and shaken down by the same small town police who I once knew by name all across my city, something has drastically changed. The murder coverup here by police was hushed all the way to the state Supreme Court where eventually the layers of the coverup were peeled, and a multi million dollar award was paid out to the survivors of the deceased white woman who violated the judges order by going to her estranged husbands house and inciting the conflict. I do see error in most every case where the black deceased was dumb as a brick, like keeping house with a multi convicted drug trafficker, getting in the line of fire through a wall in a no knock raid. Where I refuse to swallow your KOOLAID and where you have embraced the dark side, is this mindset of defenders of the flag to where we all arm to the T's. And what do we know about opposing forces from physics? A force meets a opposing equal force, because that is natural law. You have a totalitarian despot dictator usurping every single placed power under our constitutional reigns which highly limit the powers of the President, cranking up the testosterone crowd of America who probably donnot have honor to flag, to country,and to mother at their heart's core motivation. Then this crowd who delve toward raw anarchy rush around by 15 passenger vans (documented across Minnesota to Wisconsin to Illinois) setting up riots throwing molatovs, decimating small businesses. And you blame it on BLM. BULL!!!! Those,are haters creating race war. Yes there are stoves of blacks diung community destruction, but you have rioters sneaking in to ratchet this to a politicsl crises because it creates a re-election fake narrative. This is the worst leader in the history of the free world and I mean every single democray combined. He was raised cruelly, absolutely deprived of paterrnal love for decades, and was honed into a cold hearted uncaring predator. Read his close relative's book by the doctorate in clinical Psychology (I am right now). You couple his generations of skills blaming and damnig sub-groups of America which coincidentally built the wealth his father garnered through Queens housing development projects which he created off Democrat truckloads of incentive tax credits. This group has now become a force in America and you rascists just can't stomach the concept that you've been 100% wrong for the past 150 years.

trying to be civil on a car board does not mean I am lying. We have more in common than in opposition. We need to focus on the positive. When Trump told the hate group to stand down and stand by, they printed shirts and buttons and vowed they were empowered now to go F ' em up. So, is that the America you choose? Really need to quit supporting a common criminal who has never done anything to serve you, your state, or your nation. He has done everything possible to empower himself and profit from this temporary charade of power. It soon comes off, and then he owes 340 million in money. He has nothing but promises committed to back those up. His core financial strength is a house of cards and its about to come apart, just like every business he ever touched. He will die a worse end than some of our greatest 27 club members. We will just have wished he would have ended at 27, not at 97. The damage done to core American strength by letting sickos run around unmasked and cause a approximately 50% community spread infection rate right now, puts the cost to the American economy in the multiple trillions. With the strengh lost in commerce, why would it recover. The rich own the real estate for the most part. Are they going to adjust their greed to 1929 levels just because the nation went bust? No one can survive in America where Amazon has consumed the local mainstreet because those business operators had to foot the taxes of the city, county, state, and nation. Amazon doesn't. They suck up tax breaks and incentives. My state now has a fulfillment center getting close to open. I tried to find a store just outside Des Moines 3 days ago, and got lost in a subdivision trying to circle around the closed streets where concrete was getting placed to the Amazon center. That one 2 block sized complex will wipe out about half the local stores in our state. The only jobs remaining will be the drivers moving product to the poor households who lost their local jobs. How does our great consumer driven economy work in 12 months? In 24 months? This is the big business 1% president you bought into lock stock and barrel. Way to go geniuses.

despite your interpretation of events, he was taking the law into his hands, should never have crossed 17 miles into a heated protest event, armed with intent. He has a long long time to consider his actions. He won't be procreating, achieving anything his parents may have pathed for his life goals. At least when you are dumb as a brick and get a girl pregnant, the worst outcome is you grow up fast and become a responsible adult. Sadly, his life will amount to a vague lost memory. I think people instructed him that a first generation militia army had some vague modern day meaning. Well it does not. We have a real military, and no place for citizen militias. I do hope those words hold true in about 32 days. I have my reservations about a William Barr order post election day, to use the National Guard or military to control the outcome.

news reports. I am on Fox radio some, Iowa Public Radio some, and had a newspaper during that time. It was a local event to my TV station territory, but I only heard accounts from Sheriff reports. Here is a interesting observervation. We have tin can factory here, a brand new highly automated facility. If you go to a store and buy a canned food, that can likely came from this factory. Nearby is Hines, Hormel, and a lot more canned food processors, within a 60 mile radius. Lately, I have observed as many as 15 semis queing up on the public road I and about 8000 others drive to work in the rush hour AM. We have delays with this heavy volume of trucks. This is far from normal volume. Then today, on Beck I think, he has a report on a well respected pollster breaking down views of sub groups by political self aligned view, regarding the post election. 52% of hard leftists and 52% of extreme right EXPECT mass violence, food shortage, and CIVIL WAR. Not only do they expect it, they are rapidly building food and weapons to support the gut feeling. Trump owns that. His incendiary attitude and toss outs to crank up the haters has set the stage for a big race war.

the rittenhouse video link is broken. Here is something. Gatehouse media acquired my local newspaper and 10 others in Iowa, Illinois region around here. Most are local region, but 2 are central Iowa. Gatehouse also acquired USAtoday. I would now categorize every single one of these publications as catbox liner. I actually just dropped my Hawkeye subscription, the oldest newspaper in Iowa. As of 9/1, the suddenly dropped my deliveries, no reason given. I call, get a couple papers out the next days. About 9/9, they drop me a Des Moines Register, not my paper. Oh, and for absolutely no reason given, run a charge on my bank of $57.15. They had my auto draft of 10 a month for the past several years, and it was ongoing. I call, very angry discussion wtih the editor, order my money back, and cancel the subscription. And I file a complaint with a review organization. A guy at my church who was their last news writer and 1 of about 2 or 3 remaining core staffers after the acquistion, said you could put the entire organization into a 2 car garage, it was basically vacuumed out to zilch in staff, resources, and coverage was just horrible. The repetitious words indicated no copy editing, they just kept cutting pasting text repetitiously. errors constantly. Have a real story, well, good luck finding staff to go actually cover it. Local government news still got in, and sports writing coverage was still a really awesome well done area, thanks to a award winning staff in that department who hadn't gotten absolutely frustrated and walked out like Craig, my church friend. AMerica is seeing this happen all across the land. The contrived fake news is overwhelming the real news of papers and staff are getting shredded. The field reporter is becoming squeezed to the point real stories that involved actual footwork aren't justified in the bottom line of Gatehouse media. I write a ton of editorials, and was told my stuff was a rag by the newest editor. Well that day, it was sort of bitchy so I will give him that. But most of the time, it is some of the best critical comment with some well dug up facts, and I constantly get accolades from my more informed members of our community. That all ceased too. So tell me where our society goes when the 2nd amendment is ruined by what is happening, where real journalism cannot be sustained because people just want their ears tickled. When Fox News and Facebook news become the major authorities, we have no real truth. No go out and watch the Roger Ailes documentary on showtime and tell me I'm wrong.

Firstlast, I can't learn about your viewpoints without your input. The mainstream media provided TERRIBLE coverage of the RIttenhouse shooting, yet you seem to not know that. I strongly suspect you are not getting true information.

Firstlast, when I re-read some of your replies above, I know for a fact you have made some seriously erroneous claims. I'm gonna call those false claims "wrong answers". There are three ways to get a wrong answer. One, by using good information but bad logic. Two, by using good logic but bad information. Three, by using bad logic and bad information. I'm hoping your wrong answers are due to bad information, that's why I'm so interested in your take of the Rittenhouse video versus the media reports about it.

Firstlast, my first reply to you in this topic remains very important. Just look at Philly. Philly is also an example of bias, and who spreads the "news". There is already video of the police shooting that NPR says "lead to the rioting and looting". In my world, rioting and looting are NOT the responses of logical Americans.

Here is the "real news" And you argue to advance this aggression narrative. So so sad. Got nothin for you, and staying out of the fracus. It does not represent the America I grew up in. It serves one need, to destroy the union and I will never go there. OUT

Sir, did you ever watch the Rittenhouse video and compare it to the "news" that you heard? Why or why not? (You remind me of the old leftist/Democrat that I talked to the other day. He could not articulate a logical position about the Rittenhouse situation. I pulled up this topic and clicked on the links and showed him just what happened. He still couldn't see the obvious!! I still don't know if it's because such people are not getting good information, they can't really use rational thought, or some combination of the two.)

And, why are folks in some cities boarding up their store windows??? Don't those cities have a police dept.? Don't the people have "arms" to defend their property?

Firstlast, you mentioned you get info from Iowa Public Radio. I have never listened to IPR, but sometimes I listen to the local public radio and to NPR. Of those times I listen, I'd guess that close to 90% of the subject matter being discussed is very, very biased. Watch the Rittenhouse video to open your eyes.

My link is to a story about "Disinformation". It's interesting to see the blindness/bias of the writer. To claim that lots of Republicans don't believe that Biden won the election because of disinformation from Trump is to COMPLETELY miss the point. It's about the BIAS of the information the citizens have been getting from the "main stream media". How can we trust the media to tell us Trump lost when they have "misinformed" the public on Trump and Biden from the beginning?

The above article claims that doubt of the election fairness is unfounded. However, the same website lists election races that are still undecided. A very interesting fact is to notice incumbent party and current leading party. It's very hard to believe that Democrats did so badly in all the other races other than President. Why would so many people vote for Biden for President yet Republicans for all lower offices??

The response box on my Android, is about 1" tall. You try to type 1000 word answrs,, and it looks like you are on LSD. The letters need a magnifying glass just to proof. So you spread them bigger, now I get 5 lines to review. Not really conducive to bashing manifests on how our nation is damned andcwe're goin to Hades. Here is a link I heard past few days. NOR is a lot lije fishing. You thriw back some, you come back later, you fibd a hony hole. But if you are patient, you hear one interview with eye opening clarity that shows you the way. Having run a Iowa caucus this 20 election, I got to see arrogant self assuredness by the head of the Iowa Dem effort too close and in my face. The plus for my first time leadingva caucus, uscthat I am methodical. pre plan, pre-work out, and not proud but humble to let my crowd teach me,,abd corre t me. I knew at 1 hour prior to start of public part, I had connection issues and needed to be on phone finding out why my sign in to a first time used logging of results software was not working. It took himan 3 part verification,,getting bumbers onky obtained fron that call to achieve log in. Ain't no way sone hacker is pen3trating that layer. Had the access bedn wide open and oublished, it would most drfiniteky have landed ib eneny camp for them to social network broadcast, and jamb servers with requests, crashing the results thru a denial of service. Actually, there were ibstances of this page being photo snapped and shared around from someone's caucus, so this was the great dear if the modern warfare we call elections. And at the general election fight, I learned post electiin when I asked a cjair who goes to my church, why our county flipped hard red,,they said as much about the Iowa state level control. Names were offered to locally work, offers to build a ground team locally. It was all refused, they would not even open a lical party office. We had local phone banks and office under Obama 1&2. You couod ho down in your free hours and help avtualky do something. And further murdering our outcomes, the arrogant nit wits did not pour dollars into social media campaigns, but poured their dollars into TV and radio blitz ads. Further, rhe dark money in Iowa putting out hard nastyvtotal kying ass ads was unflippin nelievable. Itvtook a while slew of first hand refure ads of known on the ground,Iiwans's in the Greenfiekd Ernst race just to push back. But if the,water is risibg from the lying machine, pretty soon you get swept off your feet and then you can't achieve any resistance to the waters flow. So there is,what I know in hiw Dems blew so many House races. In 3 states, Southern I think, the single party ballit still exists,,so if you lije Trump, tou simply check 1 box and every red candidate got swept through. I do not believe in that, a smart electorate votes split ticket and achieves a balance of power, and most importantly retains highly effective fair minded leadership, or you get the McConnels of government who gum up every possible action that does not serve their highness as if you were emperor for life. Read the link, how Georgia turned blue. It was not a ginmick. Tine had a great article on how the Feds brought into Chicago made conflict a flash point. bI agree with the observations of mayor,Washibgron who daw aggressive highly organized mikitia activity sweep her ciry and fomebt what tge news clained was BLM aggression. It was a lit of race violence aeevibgvto create a,falaw narrative fircTrump to run on a justice plank lie campaign. In your black districts lije Atlanta, Cleveland, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Detroit, that lie was blazingly obvious. These grewt people had suffered Jim Crow and viter suporession for 200 years. They are still fighting their lives for the very task if voting and getting it counted. I tbink when theyvare marshalled and motivated to participate, your party has nothing to attract them but lies and hate. Trump sucks on so many levels, and this Dem forxe and a lit of middle Anerican traditiionak silent majority Republicans repudiated his narcissistic tyranical lying pants on fire ass out of office.

Sir, I would like to exchange ideas with you. If your "device" causes the many mistakes in your posts, please change your device. I don't know you well enough to have the context to be able to fix the mistakes to type.__________________ BTW, have you seen the Rittenhouse shooting video and how the media lied about it??

NPR is a leftist ogranization that deserves no public funding. That's my opinion from the many times I randomly sample their biased garbage "news".

When a "news source" leaves out VERY important facts, what do you think about their credibility? The Washington Post has this vid, it's not as accurate as other vids. And wouldn't I know it, it's biased in favor of the anarchists and against the patriot.

16th year, ranked as most trusted independent news organization PERIOD. Loved across all aspects of government. Their funding was harshly slashed and I live in rural America,,where it is toughest to keep this vital resource alive withcsome supplemental dollars. Funding drives kept two affiliates in my radio reception going when their college / university sponsors experienced massive budget shortfalls and forcedxslashing of their operating budgets.. In case you cannot connect threads, it is the journalism degrees that keep alive these no advertising biased radio affilates. It is often where news new people, broadcasters get onto the first rung of their careers. Meanwhile you exist on false narrative twisted fact Fox and Newsmax. Answer exactly why you have not watched the Roger Ailes Showtime movie THE LOUDEST VOICE yet? How do you even know you aren't a pawn in this George Orwell 1984 drama being orchestrated by tyranical selfish men bent on destroying a fierce Democracy? You don't stand for Republican ideals. You stand for strong men bent on eliminating any opposition period. Typed on a mobile device which has nothing to do with the size of the text which is a function of the web site, not the Android O.S. So utterly useless talking to you Arian race types. I hace better things to waste time on.

Firstlast, you continue to make false claims about me. You also continue to make illogical claims. (It's not logical to say that NPR is "most trusted" as a response to "NPR is leftist bias and deserves no funding". Even IF it's the "most trusted" that does not make it unbiased. You seem to trust the biased sources. Maybe that's why you can't see the truth.)

Have you watched the video of the Kyle Rittenhouse shooting yet? First, find your "Most Trusted" sources of info and read about the shooting. Then, watch the video and compare the lies you read to the truth that happened. If you can't/won't do that you are proving yourself to be a pawn.
