    Do you think POTUS’ answer to a question at the ABC Townhall will hurt him with LEO’s?

    Pres. Trump tells @GStephanopoulos, the police “have done generally a great job,” but some “choke under pressure” and “make the wrong decision.”

    Frankly, the high profile cases usually show the cops were w/in dept. protocols.

      He praised the police last night. Even those selective quotes says “great job” not “okay job.” LEOs know that some make the wrong decision. You know any organization where everyone is perfect.

      What he said is factual. Some cops do make poor choices under pressure. This is why we need to increase funding. We need to hire more cops so they can take more time for training, and we need to increase the training budgets to pay for the extra training.

      This is what my friends and family in law enforcement have said. There are a lot of good people going into law enforcement who are not given adequate training.

        Of course, “some” do. That’s a qualifier that is 99.9% true 99.9% of the time.

        It doesn’t change that some will feel his answer wasn’t strong enough, that it was worded to tread softly on the feelings of those who are coddling criminals who are in engagements with police.

      On the other hand, people in organizations like antifa, BLM and the sunrise movement, never make any mistakes, because they are perfect by definition. Only they can decide if they made a mistake and you are a racist, white nationalist if you suggest otherwise.

      Seriously, why is this conversation even happening, except to pander to the above marxist organizations that claim to be infallible, but the police are 100% evil.

      Everyone knows that every organization has its bad people and good people that sometimes make mistakes.

      Antifa, BLM & sunrise movement is asshoe!

      What someone should say about law enforcement is….well the policemen go to deadly car wrecks from cell phones and driving mistakes, then the motorcycle wrecks with fatalities, senseless murders, then to bank robbings with shoot outs, on the cases of child neglect and abuse, on to druggies having a bad day and acting out, on to a diesel truck over turning a killing many, on to gang victims and drive by shoot outs and on to domestic violence, on to school shootings and on to……these men and women are on the front lines and are not perfect. Just follow the law and you will be ok. If you can’t…understand you might have a bad day. Add in the unnecesary chases, disrespect, demonic politicians bashing them and to me they do a dang good job under the circumstance. Simple…do not call if you do not want them involved.

    Interesting, US National Security attorney Ken Kohl was just assigned to the Gen. Flynn case

    Kohl is the “First Assistant” – in DC they call it the “Principal Assistant” — same thing. It means he’s the No. 2 guy in the office. The SG’s office handled the appellate court, but they don’t normally appear in District Court. Normally it would be the AUSA on the case.

    But the issues that Sullivan is going to want to argue about involve the decision making above the AUSA level — why did DOJ and the US Attorney’s Office decide to dismiss the case. With his background in NSD, Kohl will be much better able to deal with “materiality” issues.

    And as the First Assistant Kohl will have a much stronger position from which to tell Sullivan that some of the answers to questions he might have are none of his business, which would be hard for a line AUSA to do.

    CDC incompetence on display……. Or should this be a charge of lying to congress?

    In March Robert Redfield told the Foreign Affairs Committee “There is no role for these masks in the community,”

    Today the same Robert Redfield is telling the Senate Appropriations committee – “…. I am going to comment as the CDC director that face masks, these face masks are the most important, powerful public health tool we have,” Redfield said, holding a mask in his hand. “And I will continue to appeal for all Americans, all individuals in our country, to embrace these face coverings. I’ve said that if we did it for six, eight, 10, 12 weeks we’d bring this pandemic under control.”

    I actually may chalk this up to a needed lie at the time in March since there was a potential looming mask shortage for healthcare workers at that time. As that is what I recalled thinking when I heard him say that in March.

    To be clear I think mask wearing should be a personal choice not a government forced mandate. I personally was more inclined to wear one in Jan/Feb/Mar than now after they have been imposed upon us.

    The Air Force Secretly Designed, Built, and Flew a Brand-New Fighter Jet
    And it all happened in just one year. Yes, that’s mind-blowing.

    BY KYLE MIZOKAMI
    SEP 16, 2020

    “…The U.S. Air Force revealed this week that it has secretly designed, built, and tested a new prototype fighter jet. The fighter, about which we know virtually nothing, has already flown and “broken records.” (The image above is Air Force concept art from 2018). The Air Force must now consider how it will buy the new fighter as it struggles to acquire everything from intercontinental ballistic missiles to bombers.

    ✈ You love badass planes. So do we. Let’s nerd out over them together.

    The Air Force’s head of acquisition, Will Roper, made the announcement yesterday in an exclusive interview with Defense News, in conjunction with the Air Force Association’s virtual Air, Space, and Cyber Conference.

    The Air Force built the new fighter under its Next Generation Air Dominance (NGAD) program, which aims to build a jet that would supplement, and perhaps even replace, the Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor…”

    Zoom is a China Surveillance Operation

    “Millions of students across the world have been forced into Zoom classrooms. They sit in front of their computer for the designated class time, all the while being surveiled and observed by who knows what, from who knows where, while being electronically tethered to their device during the set classroom day/time. There have been many reports of pornography just showing up in random picture frames. ”

    Just like Tik Tok, ZOOM is a CHINA company.

    CHINA is spying on each and every ZOOM call we make. In July 2020, President Trump banned Tik Tok from the United States because if its ties to China.

    We need to do the same with Zoom, as well as immediately ban any government use of Zoom in the United States. No government meeting should EVER be conducted over Zoom. China is watching, listening, and recording.”

        I get it that this is a “vaccine” and Thalidomide was a “medication” or “drug”, but I’m still not going to throw caution to the wind and rush into taking it (if I ever do at all).

    Retired Magistrate here: I have been thinking about this for quite some time with regard to the peace agreement recently entered into by Israel, UAE, Birhrian and the U.S. with others to be forthcoming.

    In the Book of Genesis it states that “I will bless those who bless thee and curse those who curse thee” with regard to Israel. President Trump has been a great friend to Israel; i.e., moving the embassy to Jerusalem, recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and standing in support of Israel in other areas and meaning it. Presidents have talked about doing these things for years but President Trump is the one who accomplished it.

    Look at everything the MSM, Democrats, Never Trumpers, RINO’s, etc. have thrown at President Trump and he is still standing. Is President Trump without fault, of course not. However, he certainly has a vision for this country and for peace in the Middle East. Will this peace hold, I don’t know. But, he has accomplished more in a short period of time than any other President with regard to attempting to bring peace to the Middle East.

    So, what is my point with all of this. I believe that GOD has put Donald J. Trump in the position as President for such a time as this and I believe HE will keep him there for the next four years.

      IMF sent money to Ukraine to corrupt Pres. Poroshenko which was thought to be used for weapons purchases among other things. Somewhere Burisma and Bidens fit in there.

      This video discusses a bill that will probably be approved by the House for more US money to IMF for Iran, Syria, Chinese Communist Party (CCP) to build detention centers in Hong Kong (you read that right).
