could the dumb bald rump call his voters out to protest , and a few million come armed in his defence ? What does an armed middle America do when told Their President is under threat .. the lying media, the evil judges , the mad scientists , the FBI , the CIA , ad infinitum : all out to get HIM ?

Ossoff's lead now 16k .. likely to increase beyond the <0.5% threshold for a recount . Congratulations to all concerned and thanks to Trump for his assistance . Georgia ; really ? .. a black pastor and a Jew ?
  Black votes mattered ! I love it :)
  Trump and the republicans had the Whitehouse , the Senate and the House . They have succeeded in losing everything . b.c.

a change of plan in the UK .. only one shot of the vaccine .. either type , from Monday .. with a wait of up to 12 weeks for the second helping . Goal .. lots more folk partly protected sooner . seems 50k a day testing positive has changed plans , combined with a global shortage of phials .. who would have guessed ..

with over 10,000 having flown from the UK to Switzerland this past w/e alone , it can be assumed the Alps will be a hub of infection for this new strain this winter just as it was first time around . Thank dog we learn from our mistakes ..
  re extra viral load , it certainly seems to be accepted hereas fact in the UK .. I have heard it frequently referred to in the past 24 hours but not the original affirmation .

Oh to be ruled by incompetents .. I'm sure Trump is personally responsible for a couple of thousand deaths  a day in the USA while here in the UK Johnston and his bumbling idiots have added 10's of thousands to the total unnecessarily .
  Now it looks like the last few days and hours has allowed many thousands to move within the UK and abroad . I don't think Europe and the world will rejoice at the spreader event of the season !
  Happy Christmas ! b.c.

normally by this time of year I have encountered  hundreds of queen wasps looking for or in places to hibernate . This year , not one ! Every month this spring and summer had at least one major storm . These have devastated breeding in local birds from rooks to gold finches . I guess one of them did for the wasps too . b.c.

' By mid-January, the IHME model predicts more than 2,100 Americans could be dying daily.' .. yesterday deaths were already at 1,974 .. not for the first time the forecast looks likely to be a gross underestimate .

My thought for some time ; if under threat of impeachment could the dumb bald rump call his voters out to protest , and a few million come armed in his defence ? What does an armed middle America do when told Their President is under threat .. the lying media, the evil judges , the mad scientists , the FBI , the CIA , ad infinitum : all out to get HIM ?

Tom, “Obama announced the seas would stop rising in his administration“
Care to back up your bullshit with a source?

Before you make false accusations, you should do a little careful research.

Otherwise, you end up with egg on your face.  I think you owe Tom an apology.

I wouldn't be surprised if Joe retires after 2 years .. 50 years of service .. and hands the reins to the VP .. I don't know if there is precedent ? If not , this is the era of the unprecedented  and i would love to see it happen .
  Can Trump pardon himself as he leaves office or would he need to hand over to Pence and have him do it ? Unprecedented ?

bbr , you know that you are here only 'cause the mods you so frequently abuse appealed to Neven not to banish you .. if you recall he wrote you ''I didn't want to let you back on the ASIF but the 'little Eichmanns' wanted to give you a fourth chance ...''

Uniquorn , I have already asked Neven and will do so again . Only he can act . I hope this time he does .
