It tells me that Trump has amazing magnetism & charisma.  That cannot be denied dieter.

He'll be back in some form,  make no mistake. 

Trump TV could easily surface and that's my bet.  And who wouldn't watch it? (What did Trump say tonight?)  Even the far left can't stop looking at Trump. 

As for being the leader of the Republicans I'm not so sure it would satisfy the man.  It's one thing being in charge but in opposition?  If he wants it,  it's his,  but he craves the limelight & the adulation

He needs an audience

He is not going away in a hurry but at least he won't be occupying the oval office. 

Trump TV is a certainty.

Ivanka will likely be the next Republican nominee. I think it was Jaded who asked how did 71m Americans vote for Trump?

The only reason Biden won was because of Trump hatred. I don't think anyone was voting for Biden or his policies.

Ivanka doesn't have the same baggage and will get all the same support.

Is Trump racist? I don't know.

You don't know?  What!?

To me,  he is an obvious racist (anyway) and tens of millions (perhaps hundreds of millions) agree with me

Are they all wrong or do the 10's of millions just misunderstand the man en masse ... I use the word 'man' loosely because he's not a 'real' man.

And by the way,  this election was decided upon racial lines and Trump had no Trump card to play this time

He lost by a big margin in the end.  And he still can't come to terms with losing. 

Sooks will do that

I wouldn't rule anything out with the Trump family and Ivanka vs Kamala would be an interesting possible match-up

As for Trump hatred,  what's there to like?  No redeeming features that I can see although I can see how he can appeal to numerous others. 

I mean, you wouldn't have him as a mate would you?  Interesting for about 10 minutes and then everyone is looking for the exit sign (when's he gonna shut up?)

Macca - all you need to do is provide evidence rather than hearsay and I will agree with you.

It can't be that hard he has had a microphone resting on his mouth constantly for over 20 years.

But racists aren't up front are they?

They hide their racism and they do it well.  Clever,  but easily seen through.  Or should I say,  they think they are clever.  Extreme racists put hoods over their heads to disguise their identity

How about I just point to the 10's of millions that have labelled him a racist ... in fact,  white Supremacist gets bandied about a lot as well

For the life of me,  I don't understand why you continue to defend Trump.  As previously stated,  you must really hate the left with a passion

At some stage you will try and disassociate yourself from Trump but it won't work

You're stuck with him for life

That's the problem the democrats felt Biden was the only candidate capable of beating Trump. If Harris is such a gun why not run with her?

I personally would have run with Amy Klobuchar.

Trump's legal team are hopeless. You tend to run into problems when you only keep people around you that agree with you. Daniel Andrews suffers from this syndrome as well.

There are obvious anomalies with the voting. Not enough to swing the result but they need to be investigated.

Hopefully Biden / Harris nationalise the voting rules. How can Nevada counters get a day off during the count when it only happens every 4 years? Not using that as an example of an anomaly, just how ridiculous the state based rules can be.

 

 

Americans aren’t ready for a female president. It’s sad but true. Harris wouldn’t beat Trump. She’s more likable than Clinton but she’s still a woman. And a woman of colour at that.

America is far too conservative for that.

Bet you the next Republican president will be a female and hated by feminists because she is conservative.

The Democrats will do female politicians no favours if they parachute Harris into president without being elected by the people.

So racists hide their racism by not saying racist things? Sounds to me like you are looking for racism where it doesn't exist 

Trump is clearly sexist based on the fact he has said sexist things.

Why don't we just stick to what he says and tweets rather than imagining what is going on in that very different brain of his.

You want Trump racist 'facts':

VII. “Go Back to Their Huts”

In office, Donald Trump followed through on his promise to curb immigration from majority-Muslim countries. He created a commission to investigate voter fraud (virtually nonexistent, according to state election officials), claiming that he would have won the popular vote but for millions of ballots cast by people in the U.S. illegally. He shut down the government for 35 days in an attempt to secure funding for a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border. He reportedly referred to African countries as “[censored]” nations—asking why the U.S. can’t have more immigrants from Norway instead—and complained that, after seeing America, immigrants from Nigeria would never “go back to their huts.” The administration favored victims of Hurricane Harvey, which hit Houston, over those of Hurricane Maria, which hit Puerto Rico, sending three times as many workers to Houston and approving 23 times as much money for individual assistance within the first nine days after each hurricane.

 

On August 12, a black man named DeAndre Harris was beaten by at least four white supremacists. At about 1:45 p.m. that day, James Alex Fields Jr., a 20-year-old white supremacist from Ohio, drove his Dodge Challenger into a crowd of counterprotesters, killing 32-year-old Heather Heyer and injuring 35 others. Fields was convicted in December 2018 of first-degree murder. In March, he pleaded guilty to 29 of 30 federal hate-crime charges in a separate trial. Speaking on the afternoon of the attack from his Bedminster, New Jersey, golf club, Trump denounced “this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence on many sides.” He paused, then repeated: “On many sides.” Lisa Woolfork is a UVA professor and an organizer with Black Lives Matter’s Charlottesville chapter. Jason Kessler was an organizer of the rally.

Trump did not let up. In May 2012, he told the CNN host Wolf Blitzer that “a lot of people do not think it was an authentic certificate.” In August, he called the birth certificate “a fraud.” Finally, in September 2016, under political pressure during his presidential campaign, Trump acknowledged that Obama had in fact been born in the United States. That was not the end of the matter. In November 2017, The New York Times reported that Trump was still privately asserting that Obama’s birth certificate may have been fraudulent.

 

 

V. “He Doesn’t Have a Birth Certificate”

“Our current president came out of nowhere, came out of nowhere … The people who went to school with him—they never saw him; they don’t know who he is.” That statement, made at the February 2011 Conservative Political Action Conference, marked the launch of Donald Trump’s public efforts to sow doubt about whether President Barack Obama had been born in the United States. “Birtherism” had been festering for several years before Trump embraced it—supplanting other proponents and becoming its most prominent advocate. In March, on The View, Trump called on Obama to show his birth certificate. In April, he said that he had dispatched a team of investigators to Hawaii to search for Obama’s birth records.

For Trump, the run-up to birtherism had been a controversy that flared when a Manhattan developer proposed building an Islamic cultural center on a site in Lower Manhattan—the so-called Ground Zero mosque. In 2010, on the Late Show, Trump told David Letterman: “I think it’s very insensitive to build it there. I think it’s not appropriate.” Letterman pushed back, saying that blocking an Islamic facility would be akin to declaring “war with Muslims.” Trump answered: “Somebody’s blowing up buildings, and somebody’s doing lots of bad stuff.” Trump offered to buy out one of the investors in order to halt the project. The action made him one of the project’s key opponents and for the first time gave him national visibility on the political right.

 

Anti-Muslim sentiment animated Trump’s birtherism campaign. He said of Obama on The Laura Ingraham Show in March 2011: “He doesn’t have a birth certificate, or if he does, there’s something on that certificate that is very bad for him. Now, somebody told me—and I have no idea whether this is bad for him or not, but perhaps it would be—that where it says ‘religion,’ it might have ‘Muslim.’ ” 

Sam Nunberg became an adviser to Trump after working with him to oppose the Islamic cultural center. Jerome Corsi, the author of Where’s the Birth Certificate?, and Orly Taitz, a dentist and an attorney, are among the instigators of the birther movement. Dan Pfeiffer was the White House communications director.

 

 

III. “They Don’t Look Like Indians to Me”

In the early 1990s, Trump attempted to block the building of new casinos in Connecticut and New York that could cut into his casino operations in Atlantic City. (All of Trump’s casinos eventually went into bankruptcy.) In October 1993, Trump appeared before the House Subcommittee on Native American Affairs of the Committee on Natural Resources. The subcommittee was chaired by Bill Richardson, later New Mexico’s governor. Trump was there to support an effort to modify legislation that had given Native American tribes the right to own and operate casinos. George Miller, a Democrat from California and the chair of the Committee on Natural Resources, was also present.

Tadd Johnson, of the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe, Bois Forte Band, served as the Democratic counsel on the subcommittee. Rick Hill is a former chair of the National Indian Gaming Association and of the Oneida Tribe in Wisconsin. Pat Williams was a member of Congress from Montana.

Trump began by noting that he had prepared a “politically correct” statement for the committee, but almost immediately went off script. The hearing became loud and acrimonious.

 

II. “Bring Back the Death Penalty”

The so-called Central Park Five were a group of black and Latino teens who were accused—wrongly—of raping a white woman in Central Park on April 19, 1989. Donald Trump took out full-page ads in all four major New York newspapers to argue that perpetrators of crimes such as this one “should be forced to suffer” and “be executed.” In two trials, in August and December 1990, the youths were convicted of violent offenses including assault, robbery, rape, sodomy, and attempted murder; their sentences ranged from five to 15 years in prison. In 2002, after the discovery of exonerating DNA evidence and the confession by another individual to the crime, the convictions of the Central Park Five were vacated. The men were awarded a settlement of $41 million for false arrest, malicious prosecution, and a racially motivated conspiracy to deprive them of their rights. Trump took to the pages of the New York Daily News, calling the settlement “a disgrace.” During his 2016 presidential campaign, Trump would again insist on the guilt of the Central Park Five.

 

Jonathan C. Moore represented four of the Central Park Five when they later sued the City of New York. Yusef Salaam was one of the five young men who were wrongly convicted. Timothy L. O’Brien spent hundreds of hours with Trump while researching his 2005 book, TrumpNation. C. Vernon Mason represented Salaam and other defendants.

 

I. “You Don’t Want to Live With Them Either”

The Justice Department’s 1973 lawsuit against Trump Management Company focused on 39 properties in New York City. The government alleged that employees were directed to tell African American lease applicants that there were no open apartments. Company policy, according to an employee quoted in court documents, was to rent only to “Jews and executives.”

The Justice Department frequently used consent decrees to settle discrimination cases, offering redress to plaintiffs while allowing defendants to avoid an admission of guilt. The rationale: Consent decrees achieved speedier results with less public rancor.

Nathaniel Jones was the general counsel for the NAACP. He later became a federal judge. John Yinger, an economist specializing in residential discrimination, served at the time as an expert witness in a number of fair-housing cases. Elyse Goldweber, a Justice Department lawyer, brought the first federal suit against Trump Management.

You're wrong ... it's quite ok to critique all sides of politics.  I should know,  I've done it all my life

Left wing governments in this country get in the way of me running my small business.  Too much bureaucracy,  red tape,  taxes,  rules & regulations etc etc

So I'm more inclined to vote right but not alt-right (like you do)

You're just stuck in the us versus them mentality.  And you will never change

You're narrow-minded and you've been that way from a young age.  Brainwashed by political idealism's (like many on the left or right)

Anyway,  just a reminder that you lost the presidency but hopefully the Republicans can come up with a worthy candidate next time.  Do that and they can return to the White House

A few points

1)I always change and adapt

2) I have never voted for an alt right group that you seem to have a hangup about. I cross off the greens and socialist parties first but after that my preferences flow to the parties with platforms I agree with

3) I didn't lose the presidency

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position.

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes.
