Thank you Camden Raynor for your letter to the editor, “Why I’ll be voting for Biden,” Sept. 17. You’ve got it right! I’m a much older voter and I can tell you that the Grand Canyon separates Joe Biden from Donald J. Trump.

The Biden/Harris ticket is not my first choice either, but they are the only choice for America in this election. If our country and the rest of the world is to survive into the future, we must make this change.

There are so many issues that DJT has changed that are just wrong, that there isn’t room to cover them in one letter.

I do not understand how any American can support a president of the United States that lies almost every time he speaks. DJT only cares about himself, not anyone else.

All Americans that can vote, must vote. And the choice this time isn’t really a choice.

This election, we have to get rid of DJT.

An obvious copy and paste job that you have no idea what you actually pasted.

Ken, you didn't even give us ONE of those changes that don't work for you and your left buddies....and if 2% Harris and liar joe get elected even you will be very sorry ...especially when the Free Stuff runs out ...if you love socialism so much why not try it out in one of the countries where it now exists...how about Venezuela ...Trump wins in a landslide because there are more folks who understand the stakes than those like yourself

More nonsense and gaslighting from jeersey..

@Jerseygrl/Lara Trump

Another rambling nonsensical post, when the Free Stuff runs out, you must mean when your monthly salary dries up right? That is the Free Stuff you are worried about and aren't you right now Lara Trump taking part in Trump Socialism as part of the Trump reelection campaign?

Trump campaign still appears to be hiding large-dollar payments to Kimberly Guilfoyle and Lara Trump

Meanwhile, former campaign manager Brad Parscale appears to have taken a $15,000 a month pay cut since his demotion

That same firm has reportedly funneled salary payments to Guilfoyle and Lara Trump, the significant others of the president’s eldest two sons. Those payments were said to be $15,000 a month, or the same amount cut from Parscale’s take.

So Pascale was getting paid more than you Lara, that's funny.

https://www.salon.com/2020/09/21/trump-campaign-still-appears-to-be-hiding-large-dollar-payments-to-kimberly-guilfoyle-and-lara-trump/

Still not clear what you do that warrants $15,000 dollars a month? But I would imagine it's a payoff for keeping quiet and pretending to be happily married to Dum Dum.

Venezuela is run by murdering dictator. The US is currently run by a pathologically lying, sociopathic dictator. Biden shares none of those traits with them. So we’ll be just fine when he’s president.

matts853

Here’s the stakes, Jersey. Trump is an autocrat who’s been steadily consolidating power. If you want to lose your freedom and liberty because he stole it from you, then go ahead and vote for him.

PurplePickles aka L&M

@matts853

It's hard to comprehend why anyone would have voted for Trump in the first place let alone twice? But there are some people we were not meant to comprehend and to Jersey she is just voting to hold onto her perceived white privileges, so she is going to vote for the orange one because, just because she wants to Make America Great Again.

She is one of those Back In the Day folk. To Jersey her racism is all that she needs, she's perfectly fine losing her freedoms and liberties as long as she has her racism to keep her warm at night.

You elect Trump, you get Venezuela, jersey. The "left" may be your only hope for a future of peace and prosperity.....

Here comes jersey with her drive by trolling nonsense. Can’t state facts or argue points- just wants to divide and inflame. This is pitiful

You’re confused. His major accomplishments are:

Rightfully getting impeached for extorting a foreign ally into helping him cheat in his re-election.

Lying to America’s face about the severity and lethality of the biggest health crisis in at least a century.

Openly subverting our free and fair election process by hijacking the post office.

Using the DOJ to punish his enemies and reward his friends.

Censoring CDC and DHS reports.

Selling out America’s soul to Vladimir Putin.

Fanning the flames of racial division by encouraging counter violence and by not addressing the nation.

So....if a lying, cheating, treasonous and immoral president is who you like, Trump’s your man!!!

LEST WE FORGET THE HORRORS: A CATALOG OF TRUMP’S WORST CRUELTIES, COLLUSIONS, CORRUPTIONS, AND CRIMES

THE COMPLETE LISTING

(SO FAR):

ATROCITIES 1-889

Early in President Trump’s term, McSweeney’s editors began to catalog the head-spinning number of misdeeds coming from his administration. We called this list a collection of Trump’s cruelties, collusions, and crimes, and it felt urgent then to track them, to ensure these horrors — happening almost daily — would not be forgotten. This election year, amid a harrowing global health, civil rights, humanitarian, and economic crisis, we know it’s never been more critical to note these horrors, to remember them, and to do all in our power to reverse them. This list will be updated between now and the November 2020 Presidential election.

October 7, 2016 – In the 2005 Access Hollywood tape, Donald Trump bragged to Billy Bush about grabbing women by their genitals without consent. In the video published by the Washington Post, Trump said, “I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it, you can do anything… grab them by the pu$$y.” Trump said his statements were “locker room banter” and apologized “if anyone was offended.” He later issued a further response to the tape’s release, saying, “I’ve never said I’m a perfect person.”

November 18, 2016 – Even though he said he would not settle the case, Donald Trump agreed to pay $25 million to settle his Trump University fraud lawsuits. The real estate seminar program was not an accredited university and used misleading marketing tactics to recruit students.

I don't know if Berryman is the same person who used to be columnist for the FNP. If so, he was tinfoil hat before tinfoil hat was cool.

matts853

Trump made it loud and clear yesterday that he won’t stand down as president if (When) he loses the election. He is seriously compromising the integrity of this election and jeopardizing the peaceful transfer of power we’ve always enjoyed in this nation. Just imagine how terrible that would be for America: Trump will create a full on constitutional crisis that will likely lead to civil unrest that goes far beyond what we’re seeing now - I’m talking armed militias of Trump supporters going crazy when Biden is declared the winner. We risk devolving into a Banana Republic. He is really, really flirting with disaster.

Trump is a counter-culture demagogue, bordering on a treasonous dictator. He is antithetical to American political values and is not a moral man. Another 4 years of him and Trump will complete his consolidation of power though his hired goons. And then he’ll conspire to get elected to a third term as he’s already hinting toward. Then he’ll find a way to get Jr. to succeed him. This is not theoretical, this is how his mind works. He will never willingly relent his power.

Biden is the only choice to make America normal again. God willing he will be sworn in as President on January on January 20.

Hayduke2

Matt - DJT's recent statements about this should have every American up in arms. Refusing to accept election results, wanting to get rid of ballots, having a "continuation" of his term, WOW. I think these are Putin's talking points.

This is the first presidential election where the results have been questioned even before the vote. Even Gore, who had the presidency stolen due to SCOTUS and screwed up FL transitioned power peacefully.

Hog wash, apparently you’ve partaken in the consumption of the mind numbing democrat koolaid. You assessment appears to be straight off the CNN and MSNBC wire. Bindenz lied about Hunter’s escapades and Commalah just lied and retweeted the phoney Breonna storyline. They’ve enriched themselves and have gotten people shot and killed. What a great team.

And now the Harris-Biden campaign has apparently sent Bloomberg to Florida to openly buy votes by paying off fines and penalties for convicted felons so that they will be eligible to vote in the election.

Yeah, bosco. Imagine using money to legally run an election. When’s Trump going to pony up some of his own?

Oh, right...you have all the evidence on that.....trump literally wants to pay people to vote for him......there's a hypocrite for you. Trump literally tells people to commit a felony by voting twice. Whatever bonzo...you will never, ever win the moral ground on backing that POS.

Doesn't Reek's (aka the fake POC who calls himself bosco) desperation smell... well, desperate?

The 24th Amendment states "The right of citizens of the United States to vote in any primary or other election for President or Vice President, for electors for President or Vice President, or for Senator or Representative in Congress, shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or any State by reason of failure to pay poll tax or other tax." The requirement to pay a fine in order to vote may not violate the letter of the law but it certainly violates the intent of the law.

PurplePickles aka L&M

@bosco/Eric Trump

See you are rambling on once again about something you clearly are incapable of understanding Eric my dear boy. Don't you get tired on me constantly having to correct your posts? Is this that daddy is paying you to do act like a fool? Well he's getting his money worth isn't he?

They passed a bill in Florida that gave back convicted felons voting rights, and no where in that bill was the stipulation that their fines had to be paid before they could vote, Well because that would be a poll tax, the bill was too vague it seems.

“Because of an 11th Circuit appeals court ruling on Sept. 11, an estimated 774,000 Floridians who have already served their time in jail or prison are not eligible to vote in the 2020 election until they pay the fines and fees associated with their sentences,” in other words a poll tax.

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has helped pay the outstanding fines and fees of 32,000 convicted felons in Florida so they could regain their right to vote ahead of the November election, according to a report.

The billionaire and former presidential candidate raised over $16 million for, and donated $5 million to, the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition, according to Axios.

https://nypost.com/2020/09/22/bloomberg-pays-fines-for-32k-florida-felons-so-they-can-vote/

I don't think the republicans thought this through when they challenged the bill, they should of just left it alone and not forced the felons to pay their fines before they could vote because now well look how much good press this is creating for Biden/Harris for FREE. Much like you bosco/Eric you need to think things through before you post, unless of course you enjoy me correcting and clarifying your posts?

Hayduke2

Sure bosco, but be sure to overlook Trump's recent actions to court Cuban voters, stage a citizenship ceremony for political purposes, move to rush thru a SC nominee for the religious right vote, etc. Pitiful argument.

If we are going to claim something illegal. Please post proof.

Paying a fine is not buying a vote. If you want to claim that, tell me how that is different from promising to build a wall and have Mexico pay for it?

Did Mexico pay for that wall yet, Reek? Sucks to be a sucker.

PT Barnum described you to a "T".

Speaking of people enriching themselves - how’s Donald and his children doing off the taxpayers’ dime? That’s what you ought to be worried about.

Seven, You touched on a key point that many Republicans seem to miss - that Trump was never for reforming the system (draining the swamp). He and his rich friends have always thrived in the swamp and continue to do so. His joy comes from engineering the swamp to service his own ego, power, and financial gain. Many still think they want a billionaire in office, so that money is not a concern of theirs, which is patently absurd, there is no billionaire who does not want more billions.

Get a map and google it for the full Senate report

U.S. Senators Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, and Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, released a report that revealed millions of dollars in questionable financial transactions between Hunter Biden and his associates and foreign individuals, including the wife of the former mayor of Moscow and individuals with ties to the Chinese Communist Party.

These were just some of the findings from their investigation into potential conflicts of interest arising from Hunter Biden accepting a position on the board of, and taking millions of dollars from, Burisma, a Ukrainian energy company with a long-standing reputation for corruption, while his father, Joe Biden, was vice president and the public face of the Obama administration’s handling of Ukraine policy.

Findings from the chairmen’s investigation include:

In early 2015 former Deputy Chief of Mission at the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv, Ukraine, George Kent raised concerns to officials in Vice President Joe Biden’s office about the perception of a conflict of interest with respect to Hunter Biden’s role on Burisma’s board. Kent’s concerns went unaddressed and in September 2016, he emphasized in an email to his colleagues, “Furthermore, the presence of Hunter Biden on the Burisma board was very awkward for all U.S. officials pushing an anticorruption agenda in Ukraine.”

In October 2015, senior State Department official Amos Hochstein raised concerns with Vice President Biden, as well as with Hunter Biden, that Hunter Biden’s position on Burisma’s board enabled Russian disinformation efforts and risked undermining U.S. policy in Ukraine.

Hunter Biden was serving on Burisma’s board (supposedly consulting on corporate governance and transparency) when Burisma owner Mykola Zlochevsky allegedly paid a $7 million bribe to officials serving under Ukraine’s prosecutor general, Vitaly Yarema, to “shut the case against Zlochevsky.” George Kent testified that this bribe occurred in December 2014 (seven months after Hunter Biden joined Burisma’s board), and, after learning about it, he and the resident legal adviser reported this allegation to the FBI.

In addition to the over four million dollars paid by Burisma to Hunter Biden and his business partner, Devon Archer, for membership on the board, Hunter, his family, and Archer received millions of dollars from foreign nationals with questionable backgrounds.

Devon Archer received $142,300 from Kenges Rakishev of Kazakhstan, purportedly for a car, the same day Vice President Joe Biden appeared with Ukrainian Prime Minister Arsemy Yasenyuk and addressed Ukrainian legislators in Kyiv regarding Russia’s actions in Crimea.

Hunter Biden received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Elena Baturina. Ms. Baturina is the wife (widow) of the former mayor of Moscow.

Hunter Biden had business associations with Ye Jianming, Gongwen Dong, and other Chinese nationals linked to the Communist government and People’s Liberation Army. Those associations resulted in millions of dollars in questionable transactions.

Hunter Biden opened a bank account with Gongwen Dong that financed a $100,000 global spending spree with James Biden and Sara Biden.

Hunter Biden also moved millions of dollars from his law firm to James Biden’s and Sara Biden’s firm. Upon being questioned about the transaction, Sara Biden refused to provide supporting documentation and information to more clearly explain the activity. The bank subsequently closed the account.

Hunter Biden paid nonresident women who were nationals of Russia or other Eastern European countries and who appear to be linked to an “Eastern European prostitution or human trafficking ring.”

As outlined in Senate resolution 70, the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee has the express authority “to study or investigate... the efficiency and economy of operations of all branches of the government, including the possible existence of… corruption or unethical practices… [and] conflicts of interest.” The Senate Finance Committee has broad jurisdiction over the United States Government and, the Department of Treasury and the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), which includes oversight jurisdiction over potential financial crimes.

Hayduke2

Here is the bottom line Bosco: But an interim report, issued by Sens. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) and Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) less than six weeks before the presidential election and released publicly on Wednesday, is largely a compilation of previously public information — some of it rehashed anew by witnesses who already testified during the House’s impeachment inquiry last year — as well as news articles and strongly worded insinuations with little evidence to back them up. See https://www.politico.com/news/2020/09/23/gop-senators-anti-biden-report-420362 for the source. Another waste nad political hit job attempt just like Benghazi by a conspiracy theory nut named Ron Johnson.

@Reek

PurplePickles aka L&M

@Bosco/Eric Trump

Are we really doing this AGAIN? How much spinning can that poor brain take before it just stops working correctly? I think we are finding out.......

A Republican inquiry into Hunter Biden and Ukraine finds no evidence of wrongdoing by his father.

An election-year investigation by Senate Republicans into corruption allegations against Joseph R. Biden Jr., the Democratic presidential nominee, and his son, Hunter, involving Ukraine found no evidence of improper influence or wrongdoing by the former vice president, bringing to a close a highly politicized inquiry they hoped would tarnish President Trump’s rival.

The report released on Wednesday by the Senate Homeland Security Committee asserted that Hunter Biden traded on his father’s name to close lucrative business deals around the world. It also claimed that his work for a corrupt Ukrainian energy company while his father was directing American policy toward Kyiv gave the appearance of a conflict of interest that sent bad signals to a young democracy from the former Soviet bloc and alarmed some in the State Department.

But the 87-page document contained no evidence that the former vice president improperly manipulated American policy toward Ukraine as a result of his son’s activities.

And this was a REPUBLICAN committee Eric. A REPUBLICAN COMMITTEE, HELLO???? Hunter Biden is not running for President and have you forgotten how much grifting you and your family have gotten away with, remember you are being subpoenaed to talk about that grifting? Remember, oh I get it now, this is your punishment, posting inane comments in the FNP, Daddy trying to warn you not to talk huh?

Your comment about Joe Biden being able to stop the riots simply by denouncing them?

First off is Biden already President? He must be for you to give him so much power that he can stop the riots just because he speaks, I see you are pleased with the Biden/Harris presidency already!

That billion dollars Trump spent to get Joe elected was worth every dollar, that’s exactly what you’re thinking right now, Biden/Harris worth every dollar! Tell Trump thanks a billion!

I’m guessing that there will be protestsfrom the right wing of the party and maybe worse from the proud boys, the boogaloo boys, the 3 percent era and the likes. Maybe even worse because the president advocates it
