So.... does that mean that some of the non-trump republicans would vote for Biden instead?

I doubt it's Republicans switching. It's likely independents seesawing between Trump and Biden based on whatever the most recent headlines are.

In other news, poll numbers for Trump aren't looking too hot. He's losing ground in every poll. Sad!

The 2-way race now puts him at only 0.2 points ahead on average. The 5-way race is now 1.9 points ahead on average. Keep in mind that Trump has always outperformed his polling, including 2020.

The vaccine was a psyop to see who, when blasted with propaganda, would take the government's mandate at their word. Within a very short time period, a disease, which did not even exist, was propagandized to be highly dangerous, the most virulent disease ever, and if you don't take the vaccine you will get [long list of horrible side effects, including death].

To put it another way, the pandemic was a desert of the real. It was entirely virtual; invented by mass media. It didn't exist. It never happened at all. If you turned your television off and ignored the internet, it would be business as usual for you and anyone you know. It was the perfect test of media penetration. If we tell you something blatantly opposed to reality, how many people can we get to fall for it? As it turns out: practically every human being on the planet. What a glorious success.

Know someone who "got sick", my good golly, perhaps they even died? We already had a respiratory disease that did that, it was called the flu. It killed millions of people every year prior to 2020, but you didn't mind that too much, now did you? Not until a bunch of screens told you to mind it, that is.

tl;dr the pandemic did not take place, is not taking place, and will never take place.

I did all of the riddles and got the "true ending" of Arkham Knight. It wasn't worth it. The Riddler fight is meh.

I do like how they managed to find a way to let you murder every single Batman villain without lore implications on the part of Batman.

Did the bank send assessors?

Apparently not, the bank testified to just taking his word for it. He did, however, pay off the loan. The bank also testified that they automatically reduce any valuations Trump gives them, lmao.

Also, isn't his networth increase due to Truth Social going public and the initial expected stock surge which will likely drop like a stone to its true worth soon after?

Yes. It's paper wealth in perhaps its most extreme form. Trump can't realize it and it's not going to help him pay his debts or cut any deals with financial institutions.

Ironically, this case proved he paid his debts to financial institutions. The fine is brought by the state claiming it was fraud to overstate the value of his property to the bank. The same bank that sent assessors to the property and accepted Trump's valuation of it. The debt to the bank is long paid off and they admitted they'd do business with him again.

This case is nothing more than government corruption. "For my friends, everything; for my enemies, the law."

I am annoyed that to fight the Riddler in Arkham Knight you have to do ALL TWO HUNDRED AND FORTY THREE of his stupid riddles on the map. Who the hell thought that was a good idea?

The core problem with a lot of open world games is that they have some extreme overarching storyline (e.g. the earth is about to collapse into a black hole!). Yet, the protagonist will often waste time doing some random nonsense on the world map, like delivering pizzas, solving a puzzle, or saving one single person from getting beat up.

As an example, one of the missions in Arkham Knight involves an ally being kidnapped and presumably tortured by a villain. However, Batman has no problem taking 10 minutes out of his day to solve some random riddle he found lying around the city. Obviously that's insane from a role-playing perspective, but open world games do this all the time; putting the player in a position where they can either pretend the main mission really is super duper important or they can ignore it to do the secondary story content. It always gives me a weird form of anxiety where I feel like I should be doing the important stuff instead.

It's almost like they went with an insane fine that they knew not even a billionaire could afford because it's a political hit job.
You'd think someone worth....*searches*

$4.5 billion, per his claim, could cough up the money.

Practically no one has the cash on hand to pay 11% of their net worth to settle a civil suit. Further, it makes very little sense to get upset at someone for overstating their net worth, then fine them more money than you know they can afford (because you were upset at them for overstating their worth!).

It's an obvious attempt to make Trump look bad and it was a huge waste of time. The only thing this case has done to Trump's support is cement his narrative that the "deep state" is out to get him.

That's a great response. I like how you posted a bunch of facts and made some very reasoned arguments to support your position. I'm totally convinced.

The important thing here is that you will vote for a corrupt party with a conservative candidate. But which one will you choose?

Yes, because instead you deflected from it by trying to talk about the DNC's corruption instead.

It's not deflection to point out your idea of "Russians helped Republicans win" involved Russians releasing emails containing blatant DNC corruption. Had the DNC not been corrupt, it wouldn't have helped Republicans at all!

None of this is true. I don't have to discuss the subject of the DNC's corruption with you if I don't want to, just as I don't have to discuss any number of irrelevant subjects with you if I don't want to. You can't draw any meaningful conclusions about what I do or don't condone from me simply choosing not to discuss an irrelevant subject with you.

I can't force you to unbury your head, it can stay buried as long as you want!

That's really interesting! Someone should tell this guy, because he seems to think differently.

Unsurprisingly, you failed to specify why these two posts are conflicted.

You're going to have to put more effort into your bait than this.

Again with the head burying...

There is no conflict between acknowledging that Biden is far from a leftist - or even a liberal - and arguing that he is vastly preferable to Trump. There might be more validity to what you were saying if it were a standard Republican rather than Trump who was running against Biden, although Roe being overturned would almost certainly have happened with any Republican in office - there's no way a lifelong womanizer like Trump really has any kind of special animosity towards abortion, after all. But Trump is a special breed who's uniquely unsuited for office, which he proved time and time again during his four years in office.

Oh no, two candidates that don't believe in what they're saying, both are lifelong democrats and yet both are conservative. I guess you'll have to pick which one doesn't post mean tweets, since that's apparently the only difference now.

I haven't seen any mention of this organization in any of the media coverage of this case. I'm not necessarily saying you're wrong, only that this information definitely isn't so obvious or "transparent" as to not even merit being supported with a citation in an article blaming Democrats for pushing this case.

You mean you haven't seen it mentioned in any of the Reddit comments you've been reading. Don't try to tell me you read news articles. You don't.

First of all, it wasn't Democrats who brought the case to kick Trump off the ballot; it was anti-Trump Republicans.

It was "Republicans" backed by a Democrat activist organization. While it's a common clever tactic to say "uhm ackshully it was Republicans that brought the case", it's transparent to anyone who has bothered looking more into it that it was a bunch of Democrats searching for someone to mask their tactics.

Trump can't be stumped. The Supreme Court knew better than to antagonize our greatest President.
