The choice is getting clearer every day...

between a Hitler-like 78 year old
vs. an FDR-like 81year old.

No surprise - but very disturbing: What's omitted from Djt's "bible":

Djt-endorsed 'bible' missing amendment abolishing slavery... and others...

'MeidasTouch notes that not included are any of the constitutional amendments after the first ten that make up the Bill of Rights — 17 of them.

Awkwardly (or disturbingly), missing from the text are the amendments abolishing slavery (Party of Lincoln, anyone?) and granting women and Black people the right to vote. Also missing are the amendments setting up the Electoral College, limiting presidents to two terms, and lowering the voting age to 18.'

If Trump's gag order is still ongoing, per Judge Merchan,

will Trump be restricted as to what or whom he talks about at his upcoming debate?

The words of Joe Biden, a truly American president:

"These are the fears my predecessor is trying to play on when he says immigrants, in his words, are poisoning the blood of the country. When he calls immigrants, in his words, animals.

When he was president, he separated families and children at the border, and now he’s proposing to rip spouses and children from their families and homes and communities and place them in detention camps. He’s actually saying these things. It’s hard to believe it’s being said, but he’s actually saying these things out loud, and it’s outrageous."

"I really think the bottom line here is that Trump and his movement, they are not running against Democrats. They're running against democracy. They're running against the democratic process."

Why can't the June 27 debate be broadcast more widely and freely?

This is an historic event, during a very controversial election season between our current and former presidents, and only CNN and one other free broadcast tv station will air this?

'Uncle Sam or the crazy uncle': Mary Trump offers voters a stark choice ...

It's time to realize, Ms. Trump continued, that her uncle represents all of America's worst impulses.

"Every day, my convicted felon uncle holds up a mirror to the worst of us, and it’s long past time people start looking — really looking — at what is reflected there," she wrote. "We are reminded every day that convicted felon Donald Trump hates America — he hates its people, its ideals, its democracy, its judicial system, its leaders, its rule of law. He even hates his own followers."
