'I'm not jumping ship on Biden and neither should others'

"Stay on board
I don’t understand why some Joe Biden supporters are so weak and disloyal. Most Republicans will stand by Donald Trump no matter what he does, even as a convicted criminal. The minute Biden has a poor debate performance, some of his supporters are ready to jump ship. Sure Biden could have done better, however, on policy and substance he beat the socks off of Trump. I will not jump ship!

Voters who support Biden must stay on board and show their resolve to not let Trump step one toenail into the Oval Office. The alternative — Trump — is scary and quite frankly an affront to democracy."

'Cohen warns Trump will run US ‘like a dictator'
Donald Trump’s former lawyer and one-time fixer Michael Cohen has warned that his ex-boss will run the country “like the Führer” if he is re-elected in November, thanks to the recent Supreme Court ruling on presidential immunity.

Citing the Trump vs US ruling, Cohen told The Daily Beast that the former president could now wield his power in whatever way he wants if he takes back the White House this November.

“He’ll run the country like a king, like a supreme leader, like
a monarch, like a dictator, like the Führer,” Cohen said, invoking the German word strongly associated with Nazi leader Adolf Hitler. If re-elected in November, in light of the Supreme Court ruling, his worst impulses will be magnified a hundredfold.”

On Monday, the Supreme Court ruled that Trump, and other presidents, have absolute immunity from prosecution for actions that fall under a president’s “core” powers – or those directly given by the US Constitution.'

Sabrina Haake cites Robert DeNiro's comments about Biden vs. Djt

'Biden may not be as physically or mentally robust as he was 20 or 30 years ago- few are. But I will take this old man over a con man any day of the week, because Biden is a better man. Always has been, always will be. And he still has time to prove to America that he’s the right choice — and he is — in November.
I’ll close with Robert DeNiro’s words because I really can’t top them. Here’s what he just wrote in a post-debate email:

"Over the years, I’ve played my share of vicious, low-life characters. I’ve spent a lot of time studying bad men. I’ve examined their characteristics, their mannerisms, and the utter banality of their cruelty. Donald Trump is a wannabe tough guy with no morals or ethics who will do whatever he can to obtain power. As an actor, I could never play him. There’s not a shred of humanity to hang on to. I strongly support Joe Biden. He’s a lifelong public servant with great personal integrity. I trust him completely to run the country. He puts you first. Trump cares only about himself."

'Donald Trump wants to make America a monarchy again.'

Biden campaign uses July 4th to blast Trump for turning U.S. into monarchy.
In an email, the Biden campaign told supporters that, “This July fourth, Donald Trump wants to make America a monarchy again.”

When Donald Trump fantasizes about getting revenge on his political opponents, openly campaigns on being a dictator on day one, and encourages and excuses the political violence on January 6, we must believe him.'
Especially when the Supreme Court’s latest ruling removes one of the last remaining checks on him doing exactly that.

Biden Team Slams djt's 'New Rock Bottom!'

'Donald Trump, while golfing and avoiding the campaign trail, hit a new rock bottom: caught on tape saying that Vice President Harris, who made history as the first Black and first Asian American woman elected to the office, is “pathetic” and “so f***king bad.”

Biden-Harris Spokesperson Sarafina Chitika released the following statement:

“No, Donald.

“What is bad is taking away women’s rights;
“What is bad is losing an election and encouraging a violent mob to attack the Capitol;
“What is bad is assaulting women;
“What is bad is not paying your taxes;
“What is bad is rooting for our economy to fail;
“What is bad is telling people to inject bleach;
“What is bad is praising neo-Nazis;
“What is bad is separating families;
“What is bad is your jobs record – the worst in modern history;
“What is bad is committing 34 felonies;
“What is bad is cutting Social Security and Medicare;
“What is bad are your abortion bans;
“What is bad is calling for the termination of the Constitution;
“What is bad is wanting to making yourself a dictator on day one;
“What is bad is your constant lying;
“What is bad is your golf game;
“What is bad is your bankruptcies;
“What is bad is selling out Americans to your rich donors;
“What is bad is denying climate change;
“What is bad is your Project 2025 agenda;
“And what is bad is running on a platform of your revenge and retribution ahead of the what is best for our country.

“Thanks for letting us clear that up for you.”

For Djt, TV appearances are reality.

But to those supporting Biden's policies, values and goals... the 6.27.24 show was over one hour of nearly non-stop false advertising.

A reputable doctor's opinion...

'Former White House chief medical adviser Anthony Fauci said he believed Biden had the “vigor and mental capability” to continue in office, in a new podcast interview.

“In my interactions with him, I have no doubt,” Fauci said of Biden on the CBS News podcast “The Takeout” .“And I can only speak in my own interactions with him,” Fauci added in the interview released Wednesday.

He added that it would be “unfair and inappropriate” to diagnose someone “from just a 90-minute clip,” noting that a cold, or antihistamines that he may have taken could have made Biden groggy or affected his voice and demeanor on stage.'

One round does not win the entire fight

Remember the turning point in a Rocky movie when he was 'down', and Adrian, waking from a coma, says to him, Do one thing for me, Rocky.... WIN!!
Feels like we're there now.
