Why repeat political rumors that you don't know if they're accurate being spread by Democrats for political reasons?

You're positing a rumor you acknowledge may be false.  The facts are Trump didn't do those things you're accusing him of.

Yet another case of responding without understanding what was written—if you read it at all. Here's the report discussed in the article. It's a little over 100-pages in length with extensive footnotes referencing sources.

You'r report, a political smear, was prepared by the Brookings Institute.  They're a liberal think tank opposed to Trump and Republicans and support the Democrats. Enough said.

Trump's been gone for nine months. He didn't overthrow the government, never declared martial law, never bombed the Chinese, and left office when he was supposed to.

Trump will forever be regarded as one of the worst presidents to ever hold the office—if not the worst. His undermining of democracy with his lies repeated and echoed over and over before and after the election resulted in one of the most shameful events carried out by American citizens against our system of government in its history. The reverberations from that event, and the shameless lies underpinning it, are still ongoing inside the United States and extends beyond its borders. It has encouraged every authoritarian and would be dictator across the globe. It has shaken confidence not only in the United States and its ability to sustain the world's oldest democracy, but in democracy itself all over the world. All of this is to the great delight of the enemies and adversaries of democracy and the United States.

Trump—the narcissistic con man—is thankfully gone from office; but, he isn't gone. He's still working consistently to keep the Big Lie alive among the blind and faithful in order to inflate his own ego at the expense of democracy. The stain he's already left on this country is indelible; yet, he's still pouring on more of his personal brand of shared psychosis to set the stain deeper into the fabric of American life.

Filling complaints about an election in court is not illegal acts as they, you, and other anti Trump people claim. Democrats and others do it all the time as they did against Trump in the 2016 election. Did you claim it was illegal then?

The problem today is Biden, not Trump.  Biden's running the country.  He's the one making a mess of things.

Blaming Trump isn't going to help Biden. Biden's the president.

Another repetitious nonresponse to what someone has written. This is boring.

I prefer government to leave us alone.  We'd be better off.

The more power you give the government, the less freedom and security you get.

When you're looking for a serious assessment of the proper role of government and all you get are a couple of bumper stickers in search of a car.

There's that reasoned non-biased debated we can always expect from you.

It's Friday, I'm shooting a project in New Orleans, waiting for dusk so I can finish and celebrate the news of the week in the Quarter, that being both bills going down in flames along with Biden's approval numbers! 

So I'm going to live high right now and pass.  Not to mention, I dont want to sweat too much on my laptop. 

Just hoping now no grifter get triggers with all of these lengths of ropes I have used to tie back trees.  Timber hitches can look a little menacing to the lay person.   ;)

I get it, your upset and you, and many others, don't have your favorite villain to blame anymore, but seriously ...

I was there last night!  And hopefully again in another 2 or 3 weeks; we got the verbal, just waiting for the signature.

Take your time. No rush. In the interim, you might want to read the new book by Bob Woodward, Peril.

unfortunately I think they going to pass both bills. The social bill will probably be negotiated at 1.9 trillion which sounds a lot like the 1.5 trillion that Manchin said he could accept. 2 trillion is a step too far. So they'll get it at 1.9T plus the infrastructure. That's my prediction.

Is that a lot of money?

What do Interstates cost? What do 700 military bases cost? How much money is spent in Vegas or in online gambling? How much money do you spend on the "war on drugs" or "stopping sex work", neither of which ever seem to go away or even diminish very much?

The question with public expenditures, especially on infrastructure costs, is always the same and no one ever asks it, and it's the most important question, "What will it cost if you don't do it?"
