We've heard all kinds of stories about the JFK assassination. Theories have been called a "cottage industry." Before we get too worked up over the CIA, let's remember that John Brennan was an Obama appointee. RFK, Jr. is a high profile democrat. Interesting that he would pick this very time to publicize anti-CIA reports, since the role of the CIA and NSA during the Obama admin has been exposed as Un-American activity, unconstitutional at the least. There are also allegations that JFK was a drug addict and a psycho. At times, his charm did seem to transcend normal human parameters. Didn't JFK allow an anti-Castro invasion to die on the beach? What? To protect Fidel Castro? No, the timing of this whole flap is too coincidental for my senses. It sounds like I am coming to the defense of the CIA. I'm not. But, there are good people in it and they will revail.

How come this didn't come to trial? Pretty serious charge to just throw out there and leave it to float.

I've never had to pay much attention to "Let the Buyer Beware." The combination of online buying and democrat law of the gun has changed all that.

The only people who were surprised when Trump was elected were the television watchers and NYT readers. Those polls were as phony as Biden/Harris.

This is all we need -- the best students and parents bailing on the public schools. Who can blame them. In some countries, public schools are referred to as the "government" schools and are looked down on as inferior. How can we just permit Washiington to blow off the great way of life we once had? We can't!

K Street is where the lobbyists have offices in Washington, D.C.

Schools receive money based on per-pupil costs. Seems to me if a family home schooled, it should receive that money. It's only fair.

The Team Trump feed on Parler is good, though the Real Donald is better on Gab, especially for Twitter rejects like me.

"Eager to expand trade opportunities" What? Trump had to beat them over the head to get them to buy anything. It's a one way street with those Chinese, always has been. Sell. Sell. No buy. No buy.

Most people don't realize the extent to which Arizona is mobbed up. Well, neighboring Nevada, for starters.

What's that called, "irreconcilable differences?"

He certainly has. His YouTube rants to followers who appear to be mesmerized. And oh, those bodyguards. They could certainly get real jobs if they so desired.

Jo-ey Jo-ey Stop and think about it. With those machines, your party is taking the right to vote away from all Americans, not only the 80+M conservatives.Think what you are doing Joe!

How is it the liberals are regressive, hidebound, resistant to change, tribal, control freaks, whereas the conservatives are dynamic, always seeking positive change, creative, resisting central authority overreach, risk-taking capitalists? I was taught in school it was the other way around.

That's what identity politics and the cult of personality is all about. It is the bread and butter of the authoritarians. They get the people to rally around a charismatic leader, to whom they attribute events. Things are good, praise the leader. When they are bad, it is his or her fault. Meanwhile, they pull the strings. I don't know but I have been told America is getting the reputation for having figurehead leaders especially in the hard leaning left. Dangerous, since the next step is dictator.
When the 1776 War was over, Washington saddled up and rode back to Virginia. His friends told him he could be king. When they needed a President, they had to call him in off the farm. How times have changed!!

I'm sure you are right. I remember in 1960 there was quite a stir about the role of Cook County Illinois in pushing the Kennedy/Johnson ticket across the line. (Another feather in the cap of election rigging.)

Well, King Nebuchadnezzar is the proto type evil king of the Bible. He captured Jerusalem and made a slave out of the prophet, Daniel, who soon proved his worth and was promoted to advisor to the king. Thing about Neb, he was King of Babylon, the city which, along with Nebuchadnezzer, remains embedded in our memories. Babylon was destroyed in 539 B.C., and remains, along with Nebachadnezzer, the cultural symbol of where pride, vanity, arrogance, and incompetence will get you. Now, speaking of Obama and Biden...... . https://www.biblestudytools.com/bible-study/topical-studies/who-was-king-nebuchadnezzar-in-the-bible.html
