Trump supporters see the shooter before the Secret Service. by PanzersGhost in politics

Nothing unusual. There were many people at the rally but only a few Secret Service agents. The Secret Service sniper team did an excellent job in spotting and shooting the gunman in only a few seconds. The gunman only got off around 6 to 8 rounds. An assault rifle can shoot as fast as a person can squeeze the trigger.

I agree that it will boost his poll numbers but whether it shows him to be a leader is questionable. I believe that at that moment the shooting had stopped, and the gunman was dead. Whether Trump knew that I don't know. If he knew that the shots had stopped, it would be no different between what he did and a pitcher getting hit in the head by a ball, collapsing, and raising his hand to show he's OK. On the other hand, if he thought the gunman was still shooting and raised his hand that would be courageous.

It is a beautiful photo. The photographer got an excellent shot. However, the significance remains to be seen. When US Marines raised the US flag on Mt. Suribachi, it signified the US victory in the Battle of Iwo Jima. But if the assassin was simply a man with mental problems, what would be the meaning of the photo? How many people in the US survive murder attempts. If the assassin was opposed to Trump's agenda, it would show Trump defiant to an attempt to silence him. Actually, the real meaning of the photo could be the courage of the Secret Service protecting Trump with their bodies. That is being American which would be what the flag signifies.

Of course they do. Democrats are stupid if they don't realize that Trump prefers to run against Biden. During the American Civil War, Lincoln kept changing the Union army general. This led Robert E. Lee, the Confederate general to say that if Lincoln kept changing generals, he might find one that he can't understand. Lincoln never found a general Lee didn't understand but in Ulysses S. Grant he found a general who could beat him. If Democrats replace Biden with a young moderate such as Andy Beshear, Trump will have to change his tactics and now the matchup would be a young Democrat against an elderly Trump.

Russia continues to take territory in Ukraine but has not achieved a breakthrough. Nuclear deterrence is not based on defending against nuclear attack but MAD, mutual assured destruction. If Russia strikes NATO countries with nuclear weapons, NATO will retaliate with nuclear weapons.

If Russia achieves a breakthrough, some NATO countries such as Poland and Britain might intervene. If all NATO countries intervene, it would give Putin an excuse to use nuclear weapons. If North Korea enters the war, South Korea and some NATO countries might intervene. If China enters the war, NATO will intervene. NATO countries would not want to live under Putin no more that Europeans wanted to live under the Mongols. See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YfYEZ2C-LwE

The way for Biden to reassure Democrats that he can beat Trump is to debate Trump again. Trump said that he was willing to debate Biden 4 times. Biden claims that his poor debate performance was just one bad day. If that's the case, debate Trump 3 more times. Biden won't do this because he knows that the actual problem is a loss of cognitive skills. Democrats should urge Biden to debate Trump 3 more times starting in July. If he refuses, replace him.

I'm sure Biden has his own pollster and they agree with other polls. Democrats should know Biden is lying and replace him. If he doesn't drop out voluntarily, force him out. Democrats should make a rule that a nominee can be removed for medical reasons. In the case of Biden, the medical reason would be significant loss of cognitive skills. I'm surprised the Democrats don't already have such a rule. What happens if a nominee has a mental breakdown but refuses to step down? What happens if a nominee suffers a major medical condition which would severely hamper him in fulfilling his duties but refuses to step down?

Chasiv Yar hasn't fallen yet although Russia is threatening to. Western countries at one time did not allow Ukraine to strike targets in Russia. Even now the US has restrictions on using its weapons to strike in Russia. Russia is making gains because of its massive manpower advantage. Just as in World War II, Russia has no qualms about suffering heavy casualties. See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L8fWp-i-BGA&t=60s
Britain's new government will continue to support Ukraine. It's France's new government which won't. It's like World War II, France thought it could live with Hitler, instead Germany invaded and conquered France in 1940. Ironically, the French 2nd Expeditionary Corps, part of the Free French force which fought against Germany was composed mainly of North Africans, the very people whom the French National Rally party bashes.

The US doesn't have kings. No one should be above the law. If the President has immunity while performing official duties, what about other government officials such as Congressmen and governors? Obama never targeted children. It is no crime to kill children unintentionally. There should be an attempt to amend the Constitution so that Supreme Court justices serve 6-year terms and then must be reappointed and reconfirmed. Also, AI should select the justices. Anyone who wants to be a Supreme Court justice would complete a questionnaire. AI would review the questionnaire and select a candidate who would go before the Senate for confirmation.

The French never questioned why there would be German fighters over the Ardennes when the battle was in the Netherlands.

The way to stop Trump is to replace Biden with a young moderate such as Andy Beshear. Despite border security being a top issue, Biden's policies are not stopping the flow of migrants in the southern border. Biden cannot expect to win by counting on people disliking Trump. Voters need someone they are enthusiastic about. Trump is a good fiery speaker although not as good as Hitler. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FJ3N_2r6R-o

Don't wait until 2028, the Democratic leadership should replace Biden immediately. If Trump becomes president, he will endanger democracy. Remember that the Nazi Party rose to power because the democratic Weimar Republic could not control inflation. Presently, inflation is high, and the US is being flooded with migrants from the southern border. Trump will exploit this. Trump is a good speaker although not as good as Hitler.

Censorship-Industrial Complex Loses Bladder Control Over New Study Implicating mRNA Covid-19 Vaccines in Global Excess Mortality — Headlines — June 20, 2024 by carn0ld03 in WorldNews

From https://theconversation.com/covid-vaccines-saved-millions-of-lives-linking-them-to-excess-deaths-is-a-mistake-231776

If the vaccination campaign was contributing to the excess deaths that we have seen in recent years, then we should expect to see more deaths in people who have been vaccinated than in those who have not. The most reliable analysis in this regard was done by the UK’s Office for National Statistics (ONS). In this analysis, the ONS matched death registrations with the vaccine histories of each death recorded. They then calculated “age-standardised death rates” to account for age differences between those vaccinated and those not.

What the ONS found was that in all months from April 2021 to May 2023, the death rate from all causes was higher in the unvaccinated than in people who had been vaccinated at least once.

Biden is stupid. He should adopt the House bipartisan border security bill. To combat the Great Replacement allegation, he should include in the border security bill a limit on the number of migrants admitted from various areas of the world.

If the US needs to draft, it will need to train soldiers quickly mainly in infantry, armor, and artillery. Frontline troops do not carry a pistol. The following link shows Ukrainians training in France. Men are more adept at that time of fighting. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i5mND6cRGVc&t=42s

Women should not be required to register for the draft. If there is a war requiring a draft, soldiers would have to be selected quickly and mainly for jobs requiring physical strength such as infantry, artillery, and armor.

Biden is stupid in not being tougher on border security. He should adopt the bipartisan House border security plan.

This is my proposal to end the Israeli Palestinian conflict. Egypt will be given the West Bank enlarged by land equivalent to the Gaza Strip. In return, Israel will be given the Gaza Strip and land at least 3 times larger than the West Bank in the Sinai Peninsula. Some of the land will be adjacent to water so Israel can build desalination plants. The Sinai is inhospitable, and Egypt doesn’t have the technology to develop it but Israel does. With its new land, Egypt can give it to the Palestinians, make it a state within Egypt, or whatever it wants.

Biden offers legal status to illegal immigrants married to US citizens. by Dune1032 in politics

[–]Dune1032[S] 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Biden is stupid. He sees that from elections in Europe that people do not want a flood of migrants. Granting legal status to illegal immigrants married to US citizens is correct since it's sad to break up a family. However, he should deny entry to all asylum seekers until the illegal spouses are processed.

From https://www.businessinsider.com/russia-war-ukraine-began-crimea-could-end-there-2024-6

In the past few weeks, Ukraine has launched a series of successful attacks on the region, taking out multiple Russian air-defense batteries and striking Belbek airfield near Sevastopol.

Ukrainian attacks on the peninsula "are proving successful due to thorough preparation and systemic work, better opportunities for defense forces, satellite and aerial intelligence provided to Ukraine by NATO allies," Elina Beketova, a democracy fellow at the Center for European Policy Analysis, told Business Insider.

Meanwhile, Ukraine, which lost its traditional naval fleet during the annexation of Crimea, has targeted Russia's Black Sea fleet with great success using sea drones.

The attacks have allowed Ukraine to resume grain shipments through the Black Sea, which is vital for its economy, and forced Russia's Black Sea Fleet to move some operations away from its naval home base in Sevastopol on the Crimean peninsula.

Shapiro is the Democratic governor of a swing state. Beshear is the Democratic governor of a red state. This means that they have the ability to win over Republicans. If one of them replace Biden, people will know them. Continuing with Biden is like going with a veteran pitcher that hasn't been doing well instead getting a pitcher from the minors who hast been pitching well.

If Biden is afraid of Trump being elected, he should step down and make room for someone who has a better chance of beating Trump such as Josh Shapiro or Andy Beshear. Obama also expressed concern about Trump being elected. Then he should tell Biden to step down. If he refuses, he and other Democratic leaders should force him to step down. Obama is supposed to be smart. Can't he see that people don't like Biden? Can't he see that it would be better to have a young Democrat run against Trump? Then it would be a matchup between a young Democrat and an elderly Trump, a sharper contrast than Kennedy vs Nixon. Perhaps Obama is only academically smart.

No. This is the peace deal that the UN should propose to Putin and Zelensky. Russia will be permitted to occupy territory it seized from Ukraine before the February 2022 invasion although the land would legally belong to Ukraine. Russia must withdraw from all land it seized after the invasion. NATO membership will remain as it is. The UN will be obligated to defend Ukraine if Russia invades again.

Red flags laws are good in that they prevent people exhibiting dangerous behavior to have a firearm. The US should pass a law preventing anyone from owning an assault rifle until age 23. By that age criminal behavior and mental problems preventing a person from owning an assault rifle would have appeared in most people.

The V1 and V2 rockets did less damage than the American and British bombers because the bombers were more numerous and accurate. ME 262 jets entered the war too late and American fighters would attack the jets as they took off and landed.

HIMARS, ATACMS, and Storm Shadow have been causing considerable damage to Russia especially since Ukraine is now permitted to use the weapons to strike in Russia. Russia will now be forced to move their supplies 200 miles behind the front.
