Go the "Don"
US funds Wuhan coronavirus lab; Washington's 'bargaining chip' on Beijing
the tariffs are taxes on US consumers
A million jobs in the U.S. and trillions in revenues is hanging in the balance while the Biden clown show in Washington drag their feet on legalising marijuana , if Biden cared about the ongoing damage being done to minority communities by laws he legislated he would have already signed an executive orders to release all non violent marijuana offenders who were wrongfully convicted from prison . North Dakota and Pennsylvania are the latest states to legalise marijuana Bidens decriminalization and gateway B.S. is becoming more untenable by the day , politicians on both sides who oppose marijuan law reform are a roadblock to a million jobs being created in America and a trillion in revenues annually pouring into government coffers .
record numbers of democrats did not support Bidens nomination to run for president Bernie Sanders was and still is the most popular democrat politician in America , creepy joes presidency is a symptom of the moral decay another twenty trillion in worthless printed money cant fix anything America is socially and financially bankrupt .
maybe not a symptom but the apex of US political corruption and moral decay , although the Clintons must have been a very close second
but Sanders signed his own fate when deliberately not running as an independent in 2016 and 2020
surely he didn't believe that a party that has betrayed him at least twice was going to look after the poor people any better than they had him
looks like Ralph Nader is going to be unique in modern US politics for using his back-bone
Yeah....nearly full employment and American businesses had a supportive govt.....bastards🤔
i think global economy should have had a BIG moment in the middle of 2013
given the extraordinary Central Bank (not just the Fed) moves since 2013 the situation is only being delayed( either well or poorly )
BTW it is the corporations that corrupt the politicians ( that weren't already corrupt before they started politics )
and corporations NORMALLY 'donate ' to both major parties and especially help new ( selected ) candidates
what happened with Trump was he already had billions ( of dollars ) a few powerful friends and plenty of powerful enemies
compare that to Joe Biden who was in politics before he was 30
*** Marriages, law school, and early career (1966–1972)
Biden in the University of Delaware's 1965 yearbook
On August 27, 1966, Biden married Neilia Hunter (1942–1972), a student at Syracuse University, after overcoming her parents' reluctance for her to wed a Roman Catholic; the ceremony was held in a Catholic church in Skaneateles, New York. They had three children: Joseph R. "Beau" Biden III (1969–2015), Robert Hunter Biden (born 1970), and Naomi Christina "Amy" Biden (1971–1972).
In 1968, Biden earned a Juris Doctor from Syracuse University College of Law, ranked 76th in his class of 85, after failing a course due to an acknowledged "mistake" when he plagiarized a law review article for a paper he wrote in his first year at law school. He was admitted to the Delaware bar in 1969.
In 1968, Biden clerked at a Wilmington law firm headed by prominent local Republican William Prickett and, he later said, "thought of myself as a Republican". He disliked incumbent Democratic Delaware governor Charles L. Terry's conservative racial politics and supported a more liberal Republican, Russell W. Peterson, who defeated Terry in 1968. Biden was recruited by local Republicans but registered as an Independent because of his distaste for Republican presidential candidate Richard Nixon.
In 1969, Biden practiced law first as a public defender and then at a firm headed by a locally active Democrat who named him to the Democratic Forum, a group trying to reform and revitalize the state party; Biden subsequently reregistered as a Democrat. He and another attorney also formed a law firm. Corporate law, however, did not appeal to him, and criminal law did not pay well. He supplemented his income by managing properties.
In 1970, Biden ran for the 4th District Seat on the New Castle County Council on a liberal platform that included support for public housing in the suburbs. The seat had been held by Republican Henry R. Folsom, who was running in the 5th District following a reapportionment of council districts. Biden won the general election, and took office on January 5, 1971. He served until January 1, 1973, and was succeeded by Democrat Francis R. Swift. During his time on the county council, Biden opposed large highway projects, which he argued might disrupt Wilmington neighborhoods.
1972 U.S. Senate campaign in Delaware
Main article: 1972 United States Senate election in Delaware
Results of the 1972 U.S. Senate election in Delaware
In 1972, Biden defeated Republican incumbent J. Caleb Boggs to become the junior U.S. senator from Delaware. He was the only Democrat willing to challenge Boggs. With minimal campaign funds, he was given no chance of winning. Family members managed and staffed the campaign, which relied on meeting voters face-to-face and hand-distributing position papers, an approach made feasible by Delaware's small size. He received help from the AFL–CIO and Democratic pollster Patrick Caddell. His platform focused on the environment, withdrawal from Vietnam, civil rights, mass transit, equitable taxation, health care, and public dissatisfaction with "politics as usual". A few months before the election, Biden trailed Boggs by almost thirty percentage points, but his energy, attractive young family, and ability to connect with voters' emotions worked to his advantage, and he won with 50.5 percent of the vote. ***
Politicians in South Dakota and Alabama are scranbling to legalise before they rob themselves of urgently needed revenues and jobs , sleepy is a dinosaur like Trump who has nothingh to offer politics , FYI illio the speculation is that Drumpf used his postion as president to pocket 1.6 billion in taxpayer dollars and unemployment was tens of millions higher when his term ended .
are you disputing the fact that trillions in covid stimulus is needed to feed and house tens of millions of Americans who have filed unemployment claims ?? Trump and Biden continue to be opposed to a million Americans being employed in marijuana industries that could reduce the need to grow cotton and log forests, conservative creeps like Drumpf are directly responsible for destroying our economies and our environments .
NEEDED yes , but who actually got the cash , .. foreign nations , Boeing , several stressed banks , several airlines , several state governments , several hospitals REALLY made a killing
even at $1400 a cheque , that didn't account for even half of the $1.9 TRILLION cash printing in the last give-away
and the peasants normally didn't get half of the other cash splashes as well
IMO both sides ( of congress and Senate ) did a LOT of financial wrongs since March 2020
REMEMBER 67% of the congress and senate combined can stop nearly all Presidential bills , so if Trump was crazy .. both houses had the ability to limit the damage if they really wished to
more to this whole saga than the headlines
actually Trump woke many politicians up once the masses started having opinions and VOTING ON THEM ( not just blindly plodding along on party and minority lines ) their losing their pay-packet became a real possibility
