Did you watch the first fifteen seconds of that video? He didn't mix Biden and Obama there. He was talking about Obama.

    As you know Crooked Joe Biden and
    the radical left thugs have weaponized
    law enforcement to arrest  their leading
    political opponent, leading by a lot,
    including Obama. I'll tell you what, you
    look at Obama and some of the thing
    he's done. We did it with Obama, we
    won an election they said could be won

In his second sentence there he says to look at some of the bad things Obama has done, indicating that he was saying in his previous statement that Obama also weaponized law enforcement.

This claim against Obama weaponizing law enforcement is not new -

"The Obama-Biden Justice Department investigated journalists, targeted legitimate businesses disliked by the Obama-Biden Administration, and flouted Congressional oversight. Most notoriously, the Obama-Biden Justice Department weaponized its law-enforcement apparatus against the campaign of Donald Trump."

Obama had weaponized law enforcement against conservatives, including Donald Trump.

My bad, he clearly says that he already defeated Obama in an election they said "could be won". He goes on to say that Biden is going to get us into World War II. Oops. And for a refreshing change of pace Dave is absolutely right, he literally looks like he's having a stroke in that video. But tell me again how Biden is cognitively impaired and unfit to be President.  ::)

You seem to be mistaking age with competency. Here is Donald Trump to set you straight:

This is the same Donald Trump that just vowed to defeat Obama in 2024 right? Yes, he seems fully with it.  ::)

Saw The Flash. Obviously it's impossible to watch a movie like this this late in the game and not have formed some preconceived notions of what to expect. That can be a good thing sometimes, and it was with this movie. Based on some of what I've seen about it, I was expecting trash, or at least mediocrity. It was not. And I may have enjoyed it more having expected trash, if that makes sense.

I'm not the biggest fan of how the character is written in the franchise. He just doesn't come across as awkward (borderline autismal) in the comics as he does here. On the other hand, the Barry Allen version of this character was always kind of boring, and Ezra Miller does a great job playing with what he's given.

I thought the CGI was phenomenal. It's kind of fashionable these days to criticize a movie for its CGI, and I guess with the stylized way it's done this was an easy target. But I loved it. This was the best depiction in live action I've ever seen of Barry's powers in action. The scenes where he's traveling back in time are particularly stunning.

It was a good story. I almost want to criticize it for being too dark in keeping in line with the worst of DCEU past, but in this case it's justified because it's true to the source material. Which admittedly they play very loose with but the bare bones had to be there for the story to have its emotional thrust. And there are plenty of lighter elements to balance it out.

This was Ben Affleck's best appearance as Batman. The opening set piece was exciting, he had a cool little conversation with Barry about the potential consequences of trying to change the past as Bruce, and he's gone. It was a good sendoff for Batfleck.

The Michael Keaton Batman stuff came off as overly fanservice-y. They even seem to wink at this with young Barry's overenthusiastic reaction to being in the Batcave. But he served the story well and it was one of many fun nods to past realities presented in the movie. The best, of course, was a glimpse at the Nicholas Cage Superman movie that never came to be, complete with giant robot spider.

I'm still trying to process how I feel about the movie's big reveal that the being that forced Barry out of the Chronobowl was actually a much older young Barry still trying to fix things. I have trouble with it because it creates a loop that doesn't make a whole lot of sense, and even points that out like it's not supposed to be a big deal. I was also lost on Batman suddenly being George Clooney after Barry fixes things. Another nod to an old continuity obviously but was it necessary? This obviously isn't the actual reboot of the DCU that I was expecting it to be with that twist in play. But maybe it was setting it up by showing that different realities have different looking people. To me it just seemed silly but maybe that's all they were going for too.

On the other hand the idea presented early on that when you change something in the timeline it creates a ripple effect going both ways was really cool and a novel concept to me.

Overall I think this was one of the better DCEU movies. I enjoyed it and would recommend it. 3.5/5 stars.

The prosecutors involved have been quite clear as to what crimes Trump has been accused of. You may not personally feel that those acts should be crimes, but they are.
Feelings have nothing to do with it. The fact is, they are not crimes.
And prosecuting Trump is the right thing for a just society to do regardless of how popular (or unpopular) it makes him. Partisan political calculations should not affect the application of justice.
You are correct. You shouldn't prosecute anyone exercising lawful conduct.
Just because the only law you understand is the law of the jungle, doesn't mean the rest of us are as ignornat.
"ignornat." - Does this misspelling mean you are ignorant?

How could we trust your word you would have any clue whatsoever regarding the level of my legal expertise in other areas outside of the jungle? I mean, come on...
It means I typed on a phone without spellcheck.  But you seem to have gotten the message.

As for how we can trust it: same way we trust that you have any legal expertise.
We look at your posts and determine how often you misunderstand laws.

Turns out, its alot.
Actually, you have nothing to back up your bluster and it's (please note the apostrophe) and instead offer weak personal attacks.
Is showing classified documents to unauthorized people a crime: yes or no?
Do you have evidence that unauthorized people have looked at classified documents? Cause the prosecutor hasn't.
They do.  They have an audio recording of Donald Trump talking about the classified documents he's showing including the reaction of the two people there who clearly see the document he's holding up and acknoledge that it is, indeed, classified and they shouldn't see it.

Which, while true, is beside the point that showing classified documents to unauthorized people is a crime, and he was charged with it, and extra lovely, muppet80 has implicitly admitted that he acknowledges it as a crime just by asking if there's evidence that it happened. So there's your answer, muppet.

I firmly believe that WB entrusting this franchise to Snyder will go down in Hollywood history as one of the most costly blunders a film studio has ever made. But that's a discussion for next time.

But the Snyder Cut!

I don’t know what the FE explanation is for the earth having a magnetic field in the shape it does.

In what way should it differ?

Of course. There's nothing inherent to FET that would prevent you from being able to use a compass, and we know empirically that they function as they're supposed to. Rest easy friend!

Tom, they won't publish your flat Earth dinosaur stuff because it's insane, not because it goes against the view of their newspaper.

And yes, newspapers publish opinion pieces that go against their views all the time. Please stop pretending this is such an unusual concept. I hate to accuse someone of trolling, of course, but when you're being so obviously disingenuous it's difficult to see it as anything but.

Looks like another historic federal indictment against a former President of the United States is coming.

Let us nevar forget how disgraceful our former President acted during that period.
Never knew how terrible a dart player you are, Roundy.

Well that comment has aged like Limburger sitting out on the porch during a climate change induced heatwave.

Of the three federal indictments against our disgraceful former president this one is by far the most interesting. Let's hope it's not all sound and fury etc etc.

There is also this.

The only ones trying to sell a narrative is the Republicans, who are desperate for a scandal (any scandal!) involving Biden to deflect from the fact that their likely candidate is in seriously deep shit. The Democrats have the facts on their side. The line about "selling the illusion" doesn't come from some spin doctors, it comes directly from the latest star witness that was supposed to blow the Biden Crime Family's ( ;D) corruption wide open, and ended up being yet another dud, because the Biden Crime Family is a figment of the imagination.

If there's evidence of corruption on Joe's part I'm sure it will come out. Unfortunately all the Repugnicans have been able to produce are half-baked accusations and conspiracy theories. But I wish them all the luck, if Biden really is the master criminal they desperately want the public to  believe he is then it should be exposed.

On the other hand there are REAMS of evidence damning Trump. And as a bonus Biden never tried to overthrow the government, so on balance I think he's the better candidate.

Well that was a bust. But if you keep digging, Republicans, maybe you can get President Biden to perjure himself over a blowjob or something.

of course the former vp would have no access to secret service, and of course would have no influence as he wasn't elected president yet, and of course hunter would never be a part of any administration anyway.

100% correct! The Secret Service's coverage of a VP isn't for life like it is for a President. It ends six months after they serve. So, yeah. But whoever lets facts and details get in the way of a good conspiracy theory, eh?

Hunter does come across as a bit of a slimeball and for some reason the Republicans eat it up. You know what though? Hunter's not our President! Our President is so unimpeachable they need to attack his family. That they are so unapologetically doing so is the real disgrace.

The entire point of this debacle is that Joe has been using Hunter as a scapegoat and liaison to enact personal corruption. I think you, and everyone else here, knows perfectly well that this isn't just about Hunter. He's not some random man who happens to be connected to Joe Biden. The meme of "I didn't vote for Hunter!" and "you just don't have anything on Joe!" is nonsense. Hunter didn't find himself on the boards of foreign oil and gas companies because of his extensive executive knowledge in how to run oil and gas companies. Joe used his son to personally gain from his political power. Now neither Joe nor his son will face consequences for doing so. This is okay to you because obviously they are not the same person and the idea of them coordinating with each other is utterly impossible.

Sometimes I think the idea of family members interacting with each other is so completely foreign to so many Democrats that they cannot even imagine it...

Sure, Democrats recognize that families work together; the Trump administration saw some epic nepotism, and Democrats definitely recognize that the Trump crime family has been working together shamelessly defrauding people for decades. I guess maybe some day we'll see some concrete evidence that Joe and Hunter conspired to do something similarly illegal together, who knows?

In all of those cases Joe Biden is denying it as well. He is denying that those things are attributable to his family.

Denying his own grandchild is especially egregious and low, as she was proven to be Hunter's daughter with a blood test in 1999.

Yet the Joe and Jill Biden have repeatedly put up stockings at Christmas at the White House for only six of their seven grandchildren, leaving out Navy Joan Roberts.

They did it in Christmas of 2021:

And again in Christmas of 2022:

They reportedly even put Christmas stockings up for the dog and cat at the White House, but not for Navy Joan.

Biden repeatedly states that he has only six grandchildren:

Jill Biden says it as well:

    “We have three children, and we have six grandchildren,” the former second lady said, with her husband adding their grandchildren ranged from “seniors in law school to little infants.”

Reporters have asked White House Press Secretary about this and there is a refusal to answer the question or acknowledge the grandchild as theirs:

According to a Times report, White house aids have been told for years in strategy meetings that President Biden only has six grandkids, excluding Navy Joan

The little girl is also not even given secret service protection from kidnapping:

Yes, your guy tried to overthrow the government, has been found in court to have sexually assaulted someone, and kept classified documents he had no right to keep to seem cool to his friends, and this is the kind of thing the Republicans are trying to use to discredit Biden. I already pointed out how amusing it is, you don't really need to continue trying to make me laugh.
